First Earth Battalion Project Jedi Remote Viewing DVD Instructional CourseWhat is remote viewing:

Remote viewing is the ability to gather information about a distant or unseen target only using the natural function of the mind. It is a science which was developed and  used in the US military & national security programs for intelligence gathering. Primary use for remote viewing in the early days of development was strictly military and espionage use. Common tasks were locating hostages, submarines, troop movement and terrorist operation headquarters

Remote viewing is also sometimes referred to as structured clairvoyance, trained extra-sensory perception  (ESP) or sensing remote locations with the mind.

If you saw the movie called “The Men Who Stare at Goats”, you may remember that remote viewing was the primary talent of Lyn Cassady. Remote viewing is a fascinating subject, full of mysteries, so it’s no wonder Hollywood takes creative license on the topic. The actual process and training is of course much more complex than portrayed in the movies.

First Earth Battalion Project Jedi Remote Viewing DVD Instructional CourseThrough research, remote viewing has advanced in leaps and bounds since its early conception. It was discovered that we all have sensory circuits that mimic or help us interpret data from a remote target. If I were to describe a hot apple pie, with steam rising off it, you will probably remember what an apple pie is like. As you read this, memories may bring to mind the smell of hot cinnamon and tangy apples. This is your mind projecting the sensory data to your awareness. Just as you can see and smell and taste an apple pie that does not exist, just by remembering it, you can also remote view in a similar fashion.

Using the perception method of remote viewing, you can learn to virtually see, hear, smell, taste and feel something miles away using only your current God-given sensory system, attention management, pen and paper. If you have had rigorous remote viewing training previously, this will be an easy transition into advanced training.

No previous experience necessary.

Veni, Creator Spiritus

Posted in Religion, Uncategorized by farmerjaneusa on October 29, 2010

Veni Creator Spiritus (“Come creator Spirit”) is a hymn normally sung in Gregorian Chant. It is believed to have been written by Rabanus Maurus in the 9th century. Listen here.

According to newadvent.org, it is the only Breviary hymn retained by the Protestant Episcopal Church, a translation being given in the Prayer Book (Ordering of Priests). There are about sixty English versions.
.

COME, Holy Spirit, Creator blest,
and in our souls take up Thy rest;
come with Thy grace and heavenly aid
to fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
O comforter, to Thee we cry,
O heavenly gift of God Most High,
O fount of life and fire of love,
and sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts are known;
Thou, finger of God’s hand we own;
Thou, promise of the Father, Thou
Who dost the tongue with power imbue.
Kindle our sense from above,
and make our hearts o’erflow with love;
with patience firm and virtue high
the weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
and grant us Thy peace instead;
so shall we not, with Thee for guide,
turn from the path of life aside.
Oh, may Thy grace on us bestow
the Father and the Son to know;
and Thee, through endless times confessed,
of both the eternal Spirit blest.
Now to the Father and the Son,
Who rose from death, be glory given,
with Thou, O Holy Comforter,
henceforth by all in earth and heaven.

Amen.

European Joomla VirtueMart Barcodes Deluxe EAN

Posted in commerce, Joomla, Merchandising, Uncategorized, Virtuemart by farmerjaneusa on October 26, 2010

I know there have been some webmasters who use Joomla Virtuemart in Europe suddenly faced with clients or bosses requiring EAN barcodes displayed for every product.

Working barcode modules for Joomla Virtuemart are sparse at best, so I  European Joomla VirtueMart Barcodes Deluxe EAN-13, UPC Barcode Tabs, Inventory Tabs, Free Barcode Server, ISBN, ISSN, UPC-A, Postnet, Point of Sale Barcode Interface, Inventory Control, Authenticated Merch VM Barcode Deluxe Editionsuggest you try Barcodes Deluxe EAN.

Physical Inventory Inspections can be helped by VM Inventory, which is included in Barcodes Deluxe EAN.

The major barcoding systems are handled with Authenticated Merch software, including ISBN and its counterpart ISSN. Barcodes Deluxe can possibly assist point of sale systems as well.  In some instances you may want to make the barcode the default tab if you know how.

See a demo using UPC Barcode Tabs using the Ja Larix Joomla template.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • You must have Apache or Linux for auto install, otherwise you will have to install manually.    When finished add the barcode information into the products information. Barcodes are delivered securely via SSL to your new secure VirtueMart inventory system.
  • Subscription to the unlimited barcode server is required for proper images to show up on your website.  However, one free year is included with the purchase of all software at Authenticated Merch at the time of this writing.
  • Depending on your needs (internal use / client visibility / point of sale) you may need to register your barcodes for each product listed in your inventory.

 

From the Authenticated Merch Forum:

If your client has products that need bar codes to be able to reach the retail market as required by law, shop around for a registrar.

It can get expensive as each color, size, etc of a product classifies it as a separate product and needs it’s own registered bar code.

A couple places like walmart (not many but large companies) require a GS1 bar code which is quite expensive.

For other retail outlets, a more simple less expensive version is available. I would suggest Barcodestalk.com, only because I have used them myself but you may use other providers as well.

Stress Precedes Volume Reductions in the Hippocampus in PTSD

Posted in Health, Psychology, Science, Uncategorized by farmerjaneusa on October 14, 2010

from Science Blogs

There was a debate in the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for some time about whether the shrinkage observed in the hippocampus — a structure involved in learning and memory — was the result of the stress or was a vulnerability factor for the disease.

We know that high levels of cortisol — a stress hormone — can kill neurons. So you could argue that the stress and stress hormones that cause PTSD could also result in the reduction in hippocampal volume. This is the so-called neurotoxicity hypothesis.

On the other hand, individuals who get PTSD could have some underlying genetic or structural susceptibility, one characteristic of which could be an already smaller hippocampus. This is the so-called vulnerability hypothesis.

Researchers at Stanford have published a paper that adds credibility to the neurotoxicity hypothesis.

The researchers followed a cohort of 15 recently diagnosed PTSD patients age 7 to 13 over the course of 12 to 18 months. They tracked the sizes of their hippocampi at the beginning and the end of the interval using MRI images and also measured their cortisol levels.

The researchers found that over the interval the sizes of the hippocampi in the patients went down.

Our results support the hypotheses that PTSD symptoms and cortisol levels at baseline are associated with changes in hippocampal volume over an ensuing 12- to 18-month interval. Specifically, we found that severity of PTSD symptoms and cortisol levels predict a reduction in hippocampal volume from baseline to follow-up when controlling for pubertal maturation and gender in children with a history of traumatic stress. This is the first longitudinal study in PTSD to document an association between hippocampal changes with PTSD symptoms and with a marker of stress, cortisol levels. These longitudinal findings help elucidate previous cross-sectional reports of smaller hippocampal volumes in PTSD populations. Our results are also in accord with animal literature reporting on the neurotoxic effects of glucocorticoids in the hippocampus. Our results stand in contrast, however, with studies identifying hippocampal volume as a vulnerability factor. Although, this study was not designed to address the vulnerability factor hypothesis, our exploratory analyses suggest that hippocampal volume was not a risk factor for development of PTSD symptoms….

Our cortisol findings address a potential mechanism by which stress can alter the hippocampus. There is substantial animal literature demonstrating the neurotoxic effects of glucocorticoid in the glucocorticoid receptor-rich hippocampus. Glucocorticoids can also exert their neurotoxicity indirectly via accumulation of extracellular glutamate. High levels of glucocorticoids have been reported in children with history of maltreatment and PTSD. Elevated cortisol levels suggest that high levels of stress lead to activation of the HPA axis and cortisol production and that this leads to hippocampal toxicity, which results in poor inhibitory activity from the hippocampus unto other centers, such as the HPA axis itself. The putative neurotoxic effects of cortisol on the hippocampus may depend on at least 3 factors: (1) the developmental stage of the structure (the hippocampus glucocorticoid receptors density may change throughout development), (2) the level and sustainability of cortisol released, and (3) the severity and/or chronicity of the stressful events.

Other studies have attempted to follow patients with PTSD, but they have been done on older patient populations that have often had PTSD for much longer. This is a confound in the ability to measure hippocampal volume changes because chronic stress may not cause changes and stress that is far removed may have given the brain time to recover.

The recognition that stress does shrink the hippocampus rather than that a small hippocampus is a susceptibility factor for PTSD may have consequences in terms of patient treatment. In theory, we would like to short circuit the shrinkage of the hippocampus by some pharmacological means, or maybe we could improve function by providing cognitive training.

How to Remote Influence

Keep this uppermost in your mind: we have free will.
.
.
Nevertheless, we are constantly being barraged by other peoples’ influences. We seek the opinions of family and friends, we are subjected to myriads of advertisements every day, and we consciously evaluate the language and actions of other people for the meaning of their intents and purposes, thus we are influenced by them. These are, for the most part, conscious influences, and a great deal of our mental, physical and emotional energy is spent in dealing with these influences every day.
.
.
Most of our daily lives is comprised of the previous decisions we have made in response to those influences. For example, do you go out the door in the morning without having brushed your teeth or showered? Probably not, because we have been influenced by society that we must take care of personal hygiene before presenting ourselves to the public. In order to deal effectively with people, therefore, we have made a decision to comply with that societal norm because the consequences of not doing so are usually undesirable.
.
We have made a lot of conscious decisions, using our free will, to these conscious influences. I myself made a conscious decision to ignore advertising long ago. I buy products and services based on other rationales than “brand name”. Nevertheless, those other rationales, whatever they be, are still influences! Price and reputation are definitely influences. Even location is an influence — I will buy this here because I don’t have the time to drive any further looking for a better bargain. Nevertheless, these are influences that we have CHOSEN to affect us.
.
Remote influencing is similar in that one transmits unconscious ideas that may influence someone else! You may or may not decide to act on impressions from a remote influencer in the same way you may or may not respond to the unconscious ideas presented from advertisements.
.
From ancient “seers” of old working for kings to influence peoples and nations, to a student visualizing the answer to that tough test question in front of him, we as humans have always used the power of our thoughts to try to get information for our benefit. The miracle is that the Matrix of all information behind all things in the universe tends to respond! But it is in the nature of the Matrix to respond…

Ahhh… Amigurumi!

Posted in Art, Psychology, society, Uncategorized by farmerjaneusa on July 26, 2010

I recently stumbled upon these cute crochet creatures called amigurumi.

They are usually crocheted, but sometimes knitted.  Characterized by anthropomorphic animals and objects, these small creations fit into the palm of your hand. Amigurumi is a Japanese art and the word translates into English as “knitted stuffed toy”.

My favorite is the Ninja Bunny Minion.

Free Amigurumi Ninja Bunny Minion Pattern

Amigurumi grew in popularity in the early and mid-1990’s.  Most have much more charm than even the best Beanie Babies.


Even if you don’t know how to crochet, I think by the end of the day most people that are half decent at making small things with their hands will be able to make a simple creature out of yarn and a few beads if they put their mind to it and have a little bit of patience.

July 4th Fireworks Are No Blast For Pets

Posted in Animals, Health, Psychology, society, Uncategorized by farmerjaneusa on July 3, 2010

The wafting of delicious meaty scents from every direction and the overwhelming repeated blasts of gunshots and fireworks accompanied by bright lights and excited voices is enough to send animals over the edge.

Imagine not having a clue what was going on during this Independence Day Weekend.  What would you think of these unusual events?

Pet safety should be a priority this Indenpendence Day WeekendWhat if you are an animal and your owners are not there to comfort you and keep you from harm?  As is the case with some animals, try to understand the anxiety of not being able to protect your owners, or not knowing where they are, when there is certain mayhem knocking at the door.

Put yourself in their innocent position.  Animals often get lost, hurt or killed when running from perceived danger or toward the confusing and undeniable scents of a neighborhood full of BBQs.

You can’t explain to them the reasons behind the activities, but you can think ahead and, at the very least, keep your pets from getting loose.

From the Human Society Website:

“Returning home from a holiday celebration, Sharon Moore and her family discovered feces on their living room floor.

The sliding glass door to their backyard was open, and a hole had been dug under their fence.

The Moores were gone for only four hours, but D.O.G., their 2-year-old, aptly-named white German Shepherd, was gone. Left on her own to face the tumult of fireworks and loud celebrations, she escaped, apparently to seek the familiar—her family—even if she had no idea where to look.

‘From what we can tell, when D.O.G. heard the fireworks she freaked out and pooped on the floor inside—for the first time ever—then she opened the sliding glass door with her paw, and dug a hole outside our fence…. She went searching for us,’ said Moore, of Maitland, Fla.

The Moores’ search for D.O.G. ended when she was found dead alongside a road where she was often walked.

No Celebration

Pet safety should be a priority this Independence Day WeekendMoore believes that D.O.G., who wasn’t normally scared of thunder or other loud noises, panicked from the cumulative effects of the fireworks, the excited voices outside, and being left alone inside the house.

The Moores’ tragic loss isn’t unique. Pets often become frightened and frantic by the noise and commotion of Independence Day. In fact, animal shelters across the country are accustomed to receiving “July 4th” dogs—dogs who run off during fireworks celebrations and are rescued by animal control officers or good Samaritans who take them to the safety of a local shelter.

Leave Them At Home

Fortunately, preventing pet problems on Independence Day is possible by simply planning ahead and taking some basic precautions.

‘With a little bit of planning and forethought, you can enjoy the excitement of the Fourth of July and know that your animal companion is safe, sound, and enjoying a little peace and quiet,’ said Nancy Peterson, an issues specialist with The Humane Society if the United States.

To protect your pet on the Fourth of July, take these precautions:

  • Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays.
  • Do not leave your pet in the car. With only hot air to breathe inside a car, your pet can suffer serious health effects—even death—in a few short minutes. Partially opened windows do not provide sufficient air, but they do provide an opportunity for your pet to be stolen.
  • Keep your pets indoors at home in a sheltered, quiet area. Some animals can become destructive when frightened, so be sure that you’ve removed any items that your pet could destroy or that would be harmful to your pet if chewed. Leave a television or radio playing at normal volume to keep him company while you’re attending Fourth of July picnics, parades, and other celebrations.
  • If you know that your pet is seriously distressed by loud noises like thunder, consult with your veterinarian before July 4th for ways to help alleviate the fear and anxiety he or she will experience during fireworks displays.
  • Never leave pets outside unattended, even in a fenced yard or on a chain. In their fear, pets who normally wouldn’t leave the yard may escape and become lost, or become entangled in their chain, risking injury or death.
  • Make sure your pets are wearing identification tags so that if they do become lost, they can be returned promptly. Animals found running at-large should be taken to the local animal shelter, where they will have the best chance of being reunited with their owners.
  • If you plan to go away for the holiday weekend, read our information on Caring for Pets When You Travel.

If you follow these simple precautions, you and your pet can have a safe and happy Fourth of July.

The Value of a Teacher

Posted in Martial Arts, Psychology, Remote Viewing, Uncategorized, Writing by farmerjaneusa on July 2, 2010

Original article written by Sherrie Hatfield

.

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
— Albert Einstein
.
.

.


.

“I have had many teachers in my lifetime. While we may think of teachers and students in relation to school, I like to think of my parents as being my first teachers. We are all born with innate instincts that no one can teach us; we know to cry when we are hungry or in pain, to laugh when we feel joy, to turn over, crawl, walk, and run. What my parents did teach me was how to use my instincts to create my life, and they provided me a safe environment with which to do so.
.
When I began school, I found another type of teacher and became a different type of student. In the beginning, my schoolteachers made learning fun; they challenged and encouraged me, allowed me to explore what I was capable of, to push beyond my limitations. I loved my teachers and loved learning so much that my favorite game to play with my younger sisters was “school”. Of course, I was always the teacher!
.

.

In later years, I became aware that not all teachers were the same. I learned that many teachers were more concerned with grades and performance, with being the best and the fittest. In those later years of my education, the joy of learning was lost as I was simply fed information to memorize by teachers who did not see me as an individual but simply another student. I no longer saw my teachers as people, either; my respect for them had started to fade.

.
I left school at the end of my 11th year; the joy of learning had been lost. I entered the workforce and found, in my colleagues, yet a new kind of teacher. Here, I was able to choose my teachers and my fields of interest; I felt as if I was free to learn once again. From these teachers, I learned how to apply my knowledge and skills, how to interact with and manage the people around me. While I could not name it at the time, those who I chose as my teachers not only had knowledge and information, they applied it in everyday life. They walked the walk and talked the talk and lived what they knew.
.


.

When I began my journey of self-discovery in order to enhance my personal relationships, understand family dynamics, and gain a greater sense of self, as well as become the best child care teacher I could, I met a teacher with whom I spent 15 years, first as a student and then as a teacher working alongside of her. With this teacher, I studied spiritual and personal development through meditation, opening to psychic and intuitive awareness, exploring diverse philosophies and esoteric beliefs, and engaging with my inner child. I was a full-time student of this teacher for two years before working side by side with her as a teacher. My dedication was so deep that I even lived on the same property with her for years.

During that time, I taught meditation and self-growth, and even taught child-care teachers internationally how to work more openly and effectively with children. I discovered the greatest reward in teaching was to witness the uniqueness, the potential, that lay dormant in each student and help them to give it life, not as the teacher or the world envisioned it should be, but as the student chose
