Excerpt: "We are awed by the apparent retention of memory and by the retention of the child's personality and sense of humor,'' Dr. Eileen P. G. Vining; In further comment from the neuro-surgeons in the John Hopkins study: "Despite removal of one hemisphere, the intellect of all but one of the children seems either unchanged or improved. Intellect was only affected in the one child who had remained in a coma, vigil-like state, attributable to peri-operative complications."

Kenneth Ring and Sharon Cooper (1997) conducted a study of 31 blind people, many of who reported vision during their NDEs. 21 of these people had had an NDE while the remaining 10 had had an out-of-body experience (OBE), but no NDE. It was found that in the NDE sample, about half had been blind from birth.
In The Wonder Of Being Human: Our Brain and Our Mind, Eccles and Robinson discussed the research of three groups of scientists (Robert Porter and Cobie Brinkman, Nils Lassen and Per Roland, and Hans Kornhuber and Luder Deeke), all of whom produced startling and undeniable evidence that a "mental intention" preceded an actual neuronal firing - thereby establishing that the mind is not the same thing as the brain, but is a separate entity altogether. http://books.google.com/books?id=J9pON9yB8HkC&pg=PT28&lpg=PT28
“As I remarked earlier, this may present an “insuperable” difficulty for some scientists of materialists bent, but the fact remains, and is demonstrated by research, that non-material mind acts on material brain.” Eccles
The Known Universe - Dec. 2009 - very cool video (please note the centrality of the earth in the universe)
of note: The only way to "geometrically" maintain continuous 3D spherical symmetry of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation, within the "3D universe", from radically different points of observation in the universe, is for all the "higher dimensional quantum information waves" of the universe to collapse to their "uncertain" 3D particle state, universally and instantaneously, for/to each individual conscious observer in the universe. The 4-D expanding hypersphere of the space-time of relativity is grossly insufficient to maintain 3-D integrity/symmetry from radically different points of observation in the universe.

The Ad Council partners with the U.S. Department of Justice and National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to Prevent Online Sexual Exploitation
New PSA Campaign Educates Teenage Girls About Potential Dangers of Sharing and Posting Personal Information Online
The Ad Council together with The U.S. Department of Justice and National Center for Missing & Exploited Children NCMEC today announced a new phase of their Online Sexual Exploitation public service advertising PSA campaign designed to educate teenage girls about the potential dangers of posting and sharing personal information online.
Popular social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Sconex make it easier for teens to post and share personal information, pictures and videos, which may make them more vulnerable to online predators. Teenage girls are particularly at risk of online sexual exploitation a recent study by University of New Hampshire researchers for NCMEC found that of the approximately one in seven youth who received a sexual solicitation or approach over the Internet, 70 percent were girls.
The Internet is one of the greatest technological advances of our time, but it also makes it alarmingly easy for sexual predators to find and contact children, stated Attorney General Gonzales. As Attorney General and as a father, I am committed to protecting our children from pedophiles who troll the Internet for kids. The Think Before You Post campaign sends a strong reminder to children and their parents to be cautious when posting personal information online because anything you post, anyone can see: family, friends and even not so friendly people.
Another study conducted by Cox Communications shows that 61 percent of 13 to 17 year olds have a personal profile on sites such as MySpace, Friendster, or Xanga. In addition, the study found that half of these have posted pictures of themselves online and that one out of five teens reported that it is safe i.e. somewhat or very safe to share personal information on a public blog or networking site. Thirty seven percent of 13 to 17 year olds said theyre not very concerned or not at all concerned about someone using personal information theyve posted online in ways they havent approved.
We are very pleased to join with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Ad Council on the third year of our campaign entitled Think Before You Post, said Ernie Allen, president and CEO of NCMEC. This PSA campaign is targeted to reach teenage girls and deliver the vital message of not posting identity revealing information or photos of themselves online that could put them at risk for abduction or exploitation.
In another study conducted by the University of New Hampshires Crimes Against Children Research Center for NCMEC, of youth ages 10 to 17 who use the Internet regularly, 34 percent had posted their real names, telephone numbers or home address, and 45 percent had posted their real ages.
The PSA campaign, created pro bono by Merkley & Partners, includes TV, radio, magazine and Web advertising. The ads encourage girls to "think before you post" personal information that would leave them vulnerable to online predators. The PSAs seek to educate teens that the Internet is not a private place, rather its a public place and social networking profiles and blogs potentially release information that can be easily found by anyone, including ill intentioned people. All of the PSAs direct audiences to www.cybertipline.com to get tips to help prevent online sexual exploitation or to report an incident.
Previous work created for the campaign has focused on increasing awareness of parents and guardians about the prevalence of online sexual exploitation and on preventing girls from forming inappropriate online relationships with adult men in an effort to reduce their risk of sexual exploitation and abduction.
The new PSAs will be distributed to television and radio stations nationwide this week and can be viewed on the Ad Councils Web site at www.adcouncil.org.
The popularity, easy accessibility and social acceptance of the Internet, particularly social networking sites, among teenagers can put them in a dangerous situation, said Peggy Conlon, President and CEO of the Ad Council. Its our hope that this campaign will educate teenage girls and their parents about the potential dangers of offering personal information on the Internet.
We are very pleased with our continuous partnership with the Ad Council, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and the U.S. Department of Justice, said Andy Hirsch, Executive Creative Director/Partner at Merkley & Partners. Online sexual exploitation is front page news and we're happy that we can continue to lend our services to help educate teens and their families about this potential danger.
Since launching in 2004, the Online Sexual Exploitation campaign has garnered over $150 million in donated media support and NCMEC has seen an increase in reports of online enticement of children for sexual acts. Tracking studies conducted by the Ad Council found that parents and guardians who saw the PSAs were significantly more likely than those who had not to have talked to their children within that past week about chatting online with people who they hadnt met in person 44 percent vs. 35 percent.

The best basketball games I ever saw were the ones from the mid-eighties when Magic led the Lakers and Larry Byrd led the Celtics. Thes teams played in the NBA championship four times and they were all great series. But by far Magic, Kareem, Cooper, Rambus and Scott doing the run offence were unbeatable and a thrill to watch..
