There is a history of books being banned in the United States for their subject matter and content. Most notably during the colonial era, slavery and the Civil War, the Jim Crow era, and during the 19th century when religious movements and fights against immorality reached a fever pitch.
When I talked with Mr. Sam and other successful entrepreneurs, they candidly talked about the mistakes they made, but more importantly, they talked about how they fixed those mistakes. Without that attitude, Walmart would have never grown from a small store in Arkansas into the biggest company in the world.
The fact is, death is a big deal. Inescapable. I like to think of it as a journey that you go on alone. You dont know where youre going and you cant take anyone or anything with you. Thats pretty scary, and really, it requires some preparation.
Every family has its own micro-culture, within the greater cultural influences. In my husbands Nicaraguan family, when someone dies, friends, family and neighbours go to their house that same day. The family provides food for everyone and they all stay up through the night, sharing stories and providing support. Every tradition is beautiful. It is about farewelling the dead, seeing them off into the next life, and providing support to the family who has to carry on.
Without having words for it at the time, I had assumed a great deal of false responsibility. I would lay awake at night thinking about the people I worked with and how I could possibly keep them from doing the things that would surely lead to their demise.
We often find ourselves in an endless thought loop. And every so often, we try to stop this endless flow of thoughts by telling ourselves to just stop thinking. But do we or can we ever really stop thinking
It depends on how you define \"thinking,\" said Michael Halassa, an assistant professor in the department of brain and cognitive sciences at MIT. A thought, which is the result of chemical firing between brain cells, can happen both on the conscious and unconscious level, he said.
There's a difference between having a thought, and being aware that you're having a thought, she said. So if you ask someone what they're thinking about and they respond with \"nothing,\" they could just not be aware that they're having thoughts, Kam said. For instance, you could be deeply in thought about a relationship or an upcoming test, and you only become aware of it when someone taps you on the shoulder and snaps you out of it, she said. People who are thinking about \"nothing\" could also be having stream of consciousness thoughts that don't tell a coherent story, Halassa said.
But the brain never actually stops \"thinking\" in a broader sense. Most thoughts are actually happening in the background without us being aware of them, and \"there's not really a way to turn these things off,\" Halassa told Live Science.
If you see a familiar face in a crowd and think you know them, you might not be able to come up with how you know them right away, Halassa said. But maybe hours later, you'll suddenly remember. That's a result of your brain \"thinking,\" in the background, he said.
Kam agrees that how you define \"thinking,\" changes the answer to the question. \"If you mean thinking, as in having an inner dialogue with ourselves, then, yes, we can stop having that inner dialogue,\" Kam said. But if thinking means not focusing attention on anything in particular, \"I think that would be a lot more difficult for the layperson.\"
When my dad reads this post, he will rightly say that he is not done creating the mosaic of his life and he is correct. He would also say to be patient and do the best you can every day to make progress towards a more meaningful life. I hope this artist who is my father will keep on inspiring me and the others who know him for years to come as he finishes his masterpiece. I hope to follow in his footsteps in some small way and inspire my children and future grandchildren to do the same.
I don't know if it's actually possible to let John die in Same Stitch, but did you ever consider breaking Batman's code at any point if and when you believed John was too far gone in Episode 5 Especially on the villain path
Nah, not really. If Batman would kill he wouldnt be any better than the villains he is trying to catch. The police wouldnt wanna work with him and people would be rather scared than supporting him. He's a symbol for hope and justice in a city full of criminals, with citizens who are scared to go outside and a police force that cant handle everything on their own facing threats such as these.
Nope, never considered this option with John. Or anyone. The only person I really wanted out of the picture forever, from Batman point of view, was Waller. But I never thought about killing her, only putting her behind the bars.
However this stuff reflects badly to GCPD's competence and funding. If they just had proper equipment, manpower and training, Gotham wouldn't need Batman to compensate. Ironically since Batman helps, GCPD probably has hard time to make a case why they should have more government support.
Yes. I could sympathize with Joker in the vigilante route (my original playthrough), because Waller was a piece of trash. She tried to kill him in ep4, had her agents try to kill Batman and Joker's buddies in ep5, etc. In a sense, Joker and Waller are somewhat alike, but they're also very different. They're willing to kill for justice, but Waller isn't ashamed of that fact, whereas Joker's trying and is all kinds of messed up. Waller knows what she's doing, but Joker isn't stable, so essentially, he gets a free pass here... sort of. I wouldn't have cared if Waller died, but I would have cared if Joker died. Not to mention she f**king pushed him into the chemicals, which thankfully Batman caught him. Like I know he was hostile, but still. Self defense Sure, I guess... since Batman had trouble standing, and Joker did just attack Tiffany, but at that moment, I doubt he would have attacked Batman. I would never have forgiven Waller if Joker had actually fallen in.
It's the same with the whole Tiffany and Riddler thing. Revenge is a very human thing, and I can understand why she did it, but Batman thinks very differently to me. What about the GCPD They shoot to kill, and yet they're good guys, but no one bats an eye at them. No wonder Joker was confused about what's right and wrong. Even Tiffany took a life, and she's good. The only real difference here is that Joker is mentally ill, but he does have good in him.
The Batman code owes it self solely because the original comics were targeted at kids. But when Batman universe got a lot darker with The Dark Knight movies, more adult later comics, Telltale games e.t.c., the code just kinda sticked along, and I think it's a nuisanse.
I agree that I would've liked the option to play with more brutality in either path, align more with Joker on the vigilante path, and have an option to break the code on either path. I don't think this would essentially make Batman/Bruce Wayne a different character. He has in both comics and movies been shown to do these things from different writers in the past and recent times.
I think we need an even more darker season for this to happen. A villian preferably Joker should pretty much destroy Bruce psychologically. Kill Alfred or burn down Jim's stache so we have a strong motivation to kill him.
Bad Batman and 50/50 Batman however they would have been willing to kill Falcone while he was laying helpless in his hospital bed instead of just hurting him. Harvey after he destroyed that city block instead of just punching him or threatening him as Bruce. Penguin instead of hurting him or breaking his leg. Lady Arkham instead of just attacking her. Riddler (if Tiffany hadn't done it first) Eli when they interrogated him and Joker.

Thank you so much for writing this! God has been very patient with me, but I am finally learning these lessons. Through hardships He has enabled me to see blessings. Now I have a small Sunday school class teaching Christ to men who come out of our local jail. Never saw that coming!
When your focus on introspection has morphed from a dedication to an obsession, you have taken it too far. In fact, those who take self-reflection too far can end up feeling more stressed, depressed, and anxious than ever (Eurich, 2017).
In addition, it is all too easy for us to fool ourselves into thinking we have found some deep insight that may or may not be accurate. We are surprisingly good at coming up with rational explanations for the irrational behaviors we engage in (Dahl, 2017).
There are nearly endless questions, prompts, and ideas you can use to take a self-reflection break. Some of these can be asked, answered, and addressed every day, while others may best be saved for occasional self-reflection.
Reflecting on this core component of yourself will help you gain greater self-awareness. Much like meditation, it will help you achieve a new, higher level of consciousness, and it may just help you find valuable information and answers about yourself and your beliefs (Holothink, n.d.).
Be sure to structure your questions to include details about your hopes and dreams. The more detailed your questions and answers, the more opportunity you have to dig into some valuable self-reflection (Holothink, n.d.). 59ce067264
