Frequently, participants in a civil disorder are not in agreement about appropriate behavior. As was the case in the WTO Meeting of 1999, most protesters were peaceful, and a small, highly visible minority of government provocateurs, much like the ones present at the 2007 Security and Prosperity Partnership summit in Quebec, were responsible for most of the damage.. Any civil disorder is a delicate balance of power, and indeed, a political power struggle of some sort is typically the root cause of any such conflict. Often, public demonstrations are viewed as the last resort of political organizations. If the power equation in a civil disorder becomes unbalanced, the result is either oppression or riot. Police brutality is a frequent result of civil disorder, while at other times, civil disorder may develop as a result of police brutality.. Citizens not directly involved in a civil disorder may have their lives significantly disrupted. Their ability to work, enjoy recreation and in some cases, ...
A study examining whether mass shootings are contagious identified a 13-day period after high-profile mass shootings when the chance of another spikes.
Dividing by population removed the influence of population in calculating civil disorder, but the resulting distribution was even more skewed to the right. Another technique for dealing with an extreme positively skewed distribution is to compute its logarithm--the exponent of the power to which another number, the base (in this case 10), must be raised to equal the original number. In substantive terms, this means that incidents of disorder in one nation must be ten times the incidents in another nation to separate the nations by a full unit of measurement. This transformation can be justified by an argument similar to that in economics about the diminishing utility of a dollar at high income levels. Similarly, computing the logarithm of CIVILDOR implies that different incidents of disorder between two nations do not "register" unless one rate is at least ten times the other. This approach to measurement is frequently used for many forms of political and social behavior. During the Korean and ...

More people are likely to be forced to leave their homes in the future as a result of a number of factors, says a UN independent expert on the human rights of internally displaced persons.. Chaloka Beyani spoke to reporters in New York on Wednesday after presenting his report to the General Assembly.. He says over 26 million people were internally displaced at the end of 2011 due to armed conflict, generalized violence or human rights violations.. Nearly 15 million people were newly displaced during that same year due to sudden onset of natural hazards, Mr. Beyani added.. "Mega trends like rapid urbanization, human mobility, population growth and food and water insecurity, together with other factors such as more prevalent natural disasters notably due to the impact of climate change are expected to further increase internal displacement in the future. Responses to internal displacement situations will require that States and international and civil society actors be ready to adopt comprehensive ...
BACKGROUND: A federal assault weapons ban has been proposed as a way to reduce mass shootings in the United States. The Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 made the manufacture
From our current understanding of the risk factors and trends associated with gun-related violence secondary to mass shootings, which are extremely rare events, a more practical approach would be to invest our resources to another public health crisis, which is suicide.
There are clear psychological, biological and situational risk factors for mass shootings. Greater public awareness of what they are can help us figure out preventions.

The military must be prepared, the document warned, for a "violent, strategic dislocation inside the United States," which could be provoked by "unforeseen economic collapse," "purposeful domestic resistance," "pervasive public health emergencies" or "loss of functioning political and legal order." The "widespread civil violence," the document said, "would force the defense establishment to reorient priorities in extremis to defend basic domestic order and human security." "An American government and defense establishment lulled into complacency by a long-secure domestic order would be forced to rapidly divest some or most external security commitments in order to address rapidly expanding human insecurity at home," it went on. "Under the most extreme circumstances, this might include use of military force against hostile groups inside the United States. Further, DoD [the Department of Defense] would be, by necessity, an essential enabling hub for the continuity of political authority in a ...
Description. Global Economic Governance Seminar, 9 November 2012. Has there been, as many have argued, a precipitous decline in civil conflicts during the past decade? What are the underlying drivers of civil conflicts in the current era, and how do they differ from previous eras? Drawing from this analysis, what international and national policy responses are likely to be most, and least, effective in settling such conflicts? The panel for this session is: Richard Caplan, Professor of International Relations, Oxford, Monica Duffy Toft, Professor of Government and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government and Dr Anke Hoeffler, Research Officer, Center for the Study of African Economies, Oxford Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk ...
When a situation is extremely difficult, often one keeps filming. Its not possible to take on board entirely whats going on. When it comes back to you - when it really sinks in - is when you have quiet time afterwards. Then you can reflect on whats happened. That may be a ten-minute break in a firefight, or it may be on the long walk home.. ...
AMY GOODMAN: Mateens ex-wife, Sitora Yusufiy, said her family had to, quote, "pull [her] out of [Mateens] arms" when they came to rescue her.. We turn now to this often-overlooked connection between domestic violence and mass shootings. ThinkProgress reports between 2009 and 2012, 40 percent of mass shootings started with a shooter targeting his girlfriend, wife or ex-wife. Just this month in California, a UCLA doctoral student gunned down his professor, prompting a lockdown on campus. But first, Mainak Sarkar allegedly killed his estranged wife in Minnesota, climbing through a window to kill her in her home, and then he drove thousands of miles to California and killed his professor. Last year alone, nearly a third of mass shooting deaths were related in some way to domestic violence. And the majority of mass shootings in this country actually take place inside the home. Just this past weekend, as national attention was fixed to the massacre in Orlando, a man in New Mexico allegedly gunned ...
A growing segment of the American population is waking up to the implications of the Jade Helm 15 military operation to be conducted by Special Forces in conjunction with local law enforcement, the FBI, DHS, the DEA and Border Patrol across the entire Southwest. This massive unprecedented exercise will also commence in June sooner than first announced and last for 10 weeks through the summer till September 15. The risk of it triggering civil unrest or that it may coincide with a potential false flag scenario followed by another possibly timed crisis situation is both feasible and real, despite mainstream medias ridicule dismissing any such possibilities as pure paranoid conspiracy theory. What we do know for sure is this nation has turned into a militarized police state and that both the military and the government lie all the time.. We also are aware of the globalists long planned agenda of a national crisis that would induce Obama to quash civil unrest by declaring martial law. A recent poll ...

Chronic diseases such as type 1 diabetes (T1D) and congenital heart disease (CHD) are lifelong conditions, need regular treatment, self management, and health care follow-ups. Growing up with these conditions affects the childrens and their parents lives at various levels, because of the increased burden and responsibilities imposed on them. In addition, the particular socio-cultural conditions in the Palestinian West Bank can also be assumed to influence their daily life. The overall aim was to explore the experiences of daily life in children and adolescents with T1D and CHD and their parents living in the West Bank, Palestine, and to describe self-perceived health status and sense of coherence (SOC) in these children compared with a healthy reference group. In Study I and II, a qualitative descriptive design based on individual interviews was used to explore daily life experiences in children with T1D or CHD and their parents. In Study III and IV, a quantitative approach with a ...
Echoing a statement he and NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre had made earlier in the day, Cox told Fox News it was the Obama administration that approved the sale of bump fire stocks, and called on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to "do their job." "We didnt talk about banning anything," he told Carlson. "We talked about ATF going back and reviewing whether these are in compliance with federal law.". Along with pointing the finger at the Obama administration, ATF and Hollywood, Cox questioned whether prescription drugs are influencing gun violence.. Asked by Carlson what has changed since they were children to allow for an increase in deadly shootings, Cox said: "Thats a conversation thats happening at dinner tables and in living rooms all over the country. Im sure its happened in yours, its certainly happened in mine. And I dont know the answer. And I think we need to look at the broader conversation, and have a broader conversation, about a violent culture, about what has ...
Natural News) The following is a republishing of an important article written by Dan Roberts from AmmoLand.com. It reveals the real truth about mass shootings that bureaucrats and lawmakers are choosing to sweep under the rug: psychiatric drugs. If you want to know the real reason why mass shootings are taking place, this is the "inconvenient truth" the media wont cover.. Heres the full article by Dan Roberts:. (Ammoland.com) Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used.. The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.. Multiple credible scientific studies going back more than a decade, as well as internal documents from certain ...
At the strategic level, the enabler is not the military rifles, the strategic enabler is Information Warfare. 5th generation warfare is 21st century Information Warfare. The key enabler is the internet. Because military tactics, techniques and procedures are available online. In the past, you could self radicalize perhaps, but it was very difficult to self militarize. The Internet changed all that. The internet allows for simultaneous self radicalization and self militarization, and that is what the military calls a Force Multiplier. Force Multiplier means exponential effects disproportionate to scale. At the strategic level, they are altering nations, changing the behavior of entire countries, turning those countries against themselves. Again, this is not crime. This is war. Adaptive, dispersed, decentralized, self organizing with no central chain of command required, but all in pursuit of a common strategic objective. It is all part and parcel of the onset of the Information Age revolution. ...

Posted on 02/01/2013 6:44:17 AM PST by expat1000. On Dec 3rd, Naeem Davis, a homeless Muslim man, shoved a middle-aged Korean man in front of an oncoming Q subway train in Times Square. A Muslim photographer snapped a shot of him waiting to die that appeared on the cover of the New York Post and then went around the world. And that was that except it wasn t. On December 28, there was another shoving murder. After the latest round of murders, suicides and accidental deaths, seven people have died under trains in 2013; a number that does not include the deaths previously mentioned. Last week two people committed suicide by jumping in front of trains. Another was killed in a possible accident. One lost a leg. Two others were seriously injured. And this week there was another suicide. For those who might be wondering, these numbers are not normal. But they are predictable. While the MTA discusses the cost of putting up platform barriers, the actual triggering mechanism was the New York Post ...

Members of the community were kind to our businesses that were affected by the civil unrest on May 30th and May 31st. The La Mesa Chamber partnered with the East County Chamber Foundation and ECEDC to maximize the impact of the GoFundMe account to the damaged businesses. These three organizations worked tirelessly to facilitate the process and get the funds in the hands of the affected businesses and the exciting day arrived. On Tuesday, June 30th the first round of checks was distributed! A press conference was held at the La Mesa Springs Shopping Center to kick off the check distribution. The recipients were happy and grateful for the $5,000 check. One business owner, Albert, the owner of Albertos Mexican Food, gave back the check and wants to designate it to several businesses that have taken a real "hit" with the shutdown. Albert is a caring and dedicated businessman and giving back his check was quite a wonderful surprise. The check presentations were a fantastic way to have the ...
By Jill Dougherty Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday denied that Russia is providing weapons that are killing Syrian civilians. We dont supply weapons that can be used in civil conflicts, he said.
First, lets get a touch ancient angle on American health care. To do that, lets turn to the american civil conflict generation. In that warfare, dated processes and the carnage inflicted by means of contemporary weapons of the era mixed to motive terrible consequences. most of the deaths on both sides of that warfare were now not the end result of real fight however to what took place after a battlefield wound changed into inflicted. to start with, evacuation of the wounded moved at a snails tempo in most instances causing excessive delays in treatment of the wounded. Secondly, maximum wounds have been subjected to wound associated surgical procedures and amputations and this regularly ended in massive infection. so that you might live on a warfare wound best to die at the fingers of hospital treatment companies whose proper intentioned interventions have been regularly pretty deadly. excessive dying tolls can also be ascribed to normal sicknesses and sicknesses in a time while no antibiotics ...
On May 28, President Barack Obama delivered his most belligerent and menacing speech to date at the US Military Academy at West Point. Aside from the lofty rhetoric weve come to expect in every Obama presentation, the presidents commencement address was a defiant restating of the Bush Doctrine of unilateral intervention, executive authority and endless warfare. The speech contained no new initiatives or surprises, but emphasized Obamas unwavering support for the policies which have plunged large parts of the Middle East, Africa, and Eurasia into civil conflict, economic collapse and war. Obama defended US aggression on the grounds of "American exceptionalism", the dubious idea that Americans are special and cannot be held to the same standards as others. The theory implies that Washingtons relentless war-mongering and killing of civilians cannot be prosecuted under international law because the US is a law unto itself.. "I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being," ...

Earlier this month in The THES.. Marie Denley argued that women should have made the shortlist for the Today programmes Person of the Millennium competition. The exclusion of women from the Today shortlist says more about the past millenniums patriarchal culture than about current ideology. The past exclusion of women from the mainstream of government, science, and the church makes it inevitable that there are few who could challenge the world-wide influence of William Shakespeare, (the competition winner). Only Elizabeth Is absence, given her role in establishing Anglicanism, preventing religious or civil conflict, requires explanation. Marie Denley misses the point about the Today poll - that it was assessing the personalities of the past 1,000 years, during which the talents of half the human race were sadly under-utilised. But a finalists list of Lady Astor, Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth I, Florence Nightingale, Mrs Pankhurst and Shakespeare (as the token male) could have led to only one ...
Last autumn, Olivia Harrison, who received the plaque today, opened a fund in her late husbands name with an initial donation of $1 million. The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF specifically targets UNICEF programs in Bangladesh but also provides lifesaving assistance to children suffering from civil conflict, natural disasters and poverty elsewhere.. Speaking at Madison Square Garden at midday, Ms. Harrison said: "When people walk through this Walk of Fame and they come to the plaque for the Concert for Bangladesh, I hope theyre reminded how fortunate we are to be on the giving end of aid and not the receiving end of charity. And I think that one thought is motivation enough for us to continue to help others.". The launch of the fund coincided with the release of a DVD and CD of the Concert for Bangladesh. Already more than 3 million copies have been sold and all artists royalties from the DVD and CD continue to go to UNICEF.. "To date the US Fund and the George Harrison family have ...

There are serious challenges ahead. The Queens Speech foreshadowed plans to combat non-violent extremism and establish a Commission for Countering Extremism, which will support the government in stamping out extremist ideology in all its forms (see here and here). Already voices such as the Evangelical Alliance have pointed out that extremism is a slippery concept and there is no consensus about what it means. Might Christians holding biblical views on life issues and sexuality lie in its cross hairs? Hate speech accusations and reports of thought-policing in the public service do not bode well. The government already has tried and failed in recent years to define extremism in a way that tackles terrorism and its causes without restricting freedom of ideas ...
Mitchells laws: The more budgets are cut and taxes inceased, the weaker an economy becomes. To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.

The following rules-of-thumb can be used to interpret anthropometric indices in children: 1) Height-for-age Children with a Z-score below -2 compared to the NCHS height-for-age reference are considered stunted (-2 Z-score is the value -2 standard deviations below the median of the reference population. By definition 2.3% of the reference population is below -2 Z-score). The proportion of stunted children relative to all children examined is a valid reflection of the prevalence of the combination of disease prevalence and dietary inadequacy in light of physiological requirements in the whole community. The proportion of "stunted" children in most developing countries usually ranges between 20% and 33%. Higher figures are indicative of an "abnormal" nutritional situation, such as may arise because of long-term civil disorders, severe and chronic food shortage, or may reflect the combination of genetic selection and an abnormal geographic location, e.g., life in the Himalayas or the Andes. 2) ...

Nine people died Tuesday when a disgruntled employee opened fire at a Connecticut beer distributor, killing himself as police arrived. Allegedly, Omar Thornton was about to be fired for stealing beer, and had previously accused co-workers of racism-accusations that he says went unanswered by management.
