Obama's War Against Russia Backfires

For everybody except Obama’s patrons, his policies regarding Ukraine are disastrous
U.S. President Barack Obama’s war against Russia isn’t only causing Russia to cooperate more strongly with the other BRIC countries to break the U.S. dollar’s reign as the global reserve currency, but it’s also causing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s job-approval rating in Russia to soar, and the confidence that the Russian people have in their own Government to soar likewise.

“Given the current environment where robo-signing became institutionalized as a practice even though it is the equivalent of forgery and where fabrication of documents by law offices and “document processors” were prepared according to a published menu of prices, why would anyone, least of all a court of law, apply general principles surrounding presumptions when established fact makes it more likely than not that the presumptions lead to the wrong conclusions? Where is the prejudice to anyone in abandoning these presumptions in light of all the information in the public domain?” — Neil Garfield, livinglies.me


U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan ruled nine months after jurors found Bank of America and former Countrywide executive Rebecca Mairone liable for defrauding government-controlled mortgage companies Fannie Mae (FNMA.OB) and Freddie Mac (FMCC.OB) through the sale of shoddy loans by the former Countrywide Financial…

Three former Canadian soldiers are hoping their march across Canada encourages veterans to come forward if they’re struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.The march, called ‘No Man’s Land’, started in Victoria British Columbia, on June 23rd and they hope to end in St. John’s Newfoundland in late September.

Steve Hartwig was a peacekeeper in Yugoslavia back in 1992 and suffers from PTSD. He launched the walk with his two comrades, and they’ve planned to walk 32 km a day until the walk is finished.

Corina Notyce

Health care providers have much to consider when diagnosing and treating posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in service members and veterans. To assist them, Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE), in collaboration with Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), developed five provider and patient PTSD clinical support tools.

These resources offer quick tips, insights and recommendations on proper screening, diagnosis, treatment, referral, and patient and family education. Released last summer, they support guidance based on the current VA/DoD Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Post-traumatic Stress.

“These tools help primary care providers care for and treat service members and veterans diagnosed with PTSD and related conditions,” said Cmdr. Angela Williams-Steele, clinical psychologist and chief of evidence-based practices at Deployment Health Clinical Center, a DCoE center.

The resource suite includes tools to…
