It was a cold, gray March morning at Greenhouse Effect Coffee in south Salt Lake City. I had arrived early so as to set up my notes and place my order. Earlier that same week, I had tripped across a story which had struck me so deeply that I knew I would never be the same. And that morning I was to meet in person, the very subject of that story. Her name was Teal Scott, a woman who wasn't supposed to be. Yet she is here to show others the way. She is here to show others the way out of powerlessness and the way out of pain. She made that journey herself, it was a journey where revenge and anger were road signs but not answers. Now, after years of torture inflicted upon her by a mad man and the cults he belonged to, she has no desire to see her abusers prosecuted or to have the iron hammer of justice brought down upon their heads. To her, they are just victims of loveless situations, broken families, and a cycle of separation that exists far beyond the bounds of this story you are reading now. That day, when I saw her for the first time as she rounded the corner, I was instantly struck by the fact that this woman was beautiful enough to be a super model. She moved gracefully with a looming, ethereal heir of confidence across the room. She exchanged a smile and an unusually firm handshake with me and then proceeded with unwavering eye contact to wait for me to start asking questions. Teal was born in 1984 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In the first years of her life, it became immediately apparent that Teal had been born with unusual talents that set her apart from other children. These talents were not ones that Teal's parents understood. But in the years to come, they would discover that Teal was demonstrating abilities such as clairvoyance, clairsentience, clairaudience, the ability to manipulate electromagnetic fields and the ability to communicate with thought forms. As she grew, unlike many children born with extrasensory talents, her gifts did not go away. When Teal was still a toddler, her parents (who were both wilderness forest rangers), accepted a job in the Wasatch Cache National Forest of Utah, not knowing at the time about the intensely religious climate of the location. It was a sparsely populated area that at the time was over 95% LDS. Because of this, word of her unusual abilities got out very quickly and were not only frowned upon but also feared by many in the community. Like many children growing up as a religious minority Teal was ostracized as a child and the extent of difficulty in her life might have stopped at that, except that it was because of Teal's misunderstood, extrasensory talents that she caught the undivided attention of a loose acquaintance of the family. This man, whom for anonymity sake Teal calls "Mr. X" was a sociopath who also had dissociative identity disorder. Mr. X had many personalities, one of which belonged to a local Christian cult and one of which attended satanic rituals. Mr. X managed to infiltrate Teal's family and position himself between Teal and her parents as her mentor. He managed to convince Teal that among other things, he was in fact her real father. Mr. X was who they turned to about what to do about her abilities, and later. in her teen years, they trusted him to take her in when she got so mentally unstable (due to the abuse) that the family didn't know what to do with her anymore. All the time they were unaware that he was creating the very condition he claimed to be helping. It was because of this man that Teal was inducted as a child (unbeknownst to her parents) into these local cults by Mr. X. For thirteen years, Teal was routinely ritualistically tortured and programmed by this man and the members of the cults he belonged to. Teal does not think it is beneficial to drag people into the horrific details of everything that went on but according to Teal, over the course of those thirteen years, she was tortured physically and sexually in religious rituals, forced to participate in sacrifices, repeatedly raped and starved. She was forced to undergo 3 abortions (all fathered by Mr. X himself who was in his sixties at the time) he performed them himself because his job allowed not only the meager instruments to do so, but also the know how. She was photographed for sadomasochistic pornography, sold for money to men for sex out of motels and outdoor gas station bathrooms, kept hogtied in basements and kept in a hole in the ground in Mr. X's back yard. She was exposed repeatedly to electro shock programming, forced to undergo isolation torture and left overnight tied up in lava caves in southern Idaho. Teal was also forced to participate in bestiality and necrophilia and was drugged by Mr. X with Ketamine, Dormator, Xylazine, opiates and speed (all of which he had unlimited access to due to his career). She was repeatedly chased through wilderness by Mr. X "playing" tracking games in which he would hunt her and put her through any of a list of horrific punishments if she was caught and she was also used as a lure to other children that ended up also being hurt. Teal was able to escape from Mr. X as well as the cults when she was 19 years old. Since Teal's escape she has scraped with success several times, managing to make the US telemark ski team and becoming a competitive long track speed skater. And now she has assumed the title of "The Spiritual Catalyst" and has embarked on a mission as a contemporary spiritual guide in order to remind people of the united, energetic nature of this universe and to teach people how to find bliss in the midst of even the most extreme circumstances. Early this month, Teal released her first book. Her book, The Sculptor in the Sky is not an account of what happened to her as many would expect. Instead, it is about spirituality. It is a book which unravels people's limited views of reality and God and the universe and then proceeds to show people how to achieve lasting happiness. I understand that many people will be reeling (like I was) after hearing her background story. But what will really blow you away is the fact that Teal has become healthy and found joy to such an extent that she has completely forgiven her abusers. When I asked Teal why she wrote her book about happiness and the universe instead of her amazing story she sat back in her chair and said "To most people my story is an amazing story. To me, it was my everyday, normal life. To me, what you call reality is the unfamiliar reality". She went on to say "While I acknowledge now that this story is out of the ordinary and has the potential to inspire people greatly, not much good comes out of me writing a book where the dominant message isLook at how amazing I am that I overcame all of this However, overwhelming good comes of me writing a book where the dominant message isLook how amazing and powerful and free you are that you can overcome anything like I did, and find happiness no matter what you are experiencing as reality today". We spoke briefly about the fact that happiness seems to be a very elusive quality and that those who do achieve it are seen as either unintelligent or conversely enlightened. I asked her if she feels like she has reached a place where she has achieved unshakable happiness and therefore a state of enlightenment. She gave a slight smile to this and bowed her head and said "No. One thing that makes it so people can not find happiness is that they think it is some permanent state you have to achieve or some place you have to get to when the truth is that happiness, like enlightenment either is or isn't in the moment. It is a constant process in each moment to focus your thoughts and subsequent actions into happiness, just like it is a process in each moment to focus your thoughts and subsequent actions to be in line with enlightenment. I have my days where I am not very good at this, and my days that I am." In her lengthy way of speaking she continued to say "No one is meant to come here to this life and stand in perfection, or live up to something that stands in judgment of us. We are meant to come here to life in order to find happiness. Evolution is an inevitable byproduct of following the path to happiness. Not one person here, as much as you may expect it from them, stands in perfection. Perfection is an illusion. To expect perfection from yourself or others is to be resistant to where you or where someone else is and as long as you are resisting what is, you can not move forward from what is. For most people, the first reaction that comes upon hearing this story is one of total shock and then the sudden need for justice. The question of how we can reduce the ever increasing levels of crime and violence is one that plagues our society today. The usual answer to this question which is given by politicians and the media is that we have to be even tougher on crime. It is an answer that comes from a deeply held belief that fighting against crime even harder will eventually straighten this country out. But Teal adamantly disagrees. She has maintained the stance that no one needs be brought to justice after what was done to her. Teal's abuse did become a matter of the state however. It turned into an investigation, which went cold after quite some time when the district attorney decided the state could not provide enough substantial physical evidence to win a case. When I asked Teal about her views on this she said "Most women who escape from situations like I did do not ever tell about it. I did tell, but even the physical evidence I had was not enough given the years that had passed since the last incident that occurred. And I am glad for that in retrospect." I, like most people would be, was shocked by this reply and asked her why she was glad that a man such as Mr. X could still be out in the public and not in jail. She proceeded slowly and said "There is a negative vehicle of want and there is a positive vehicle of want. It is our choice which vehicle to get in and drive our own lives from. You could say I don't want torture and abusers in this world so we must punish all of those that torture, and torture the torturer so to speak. Contrastingly, instead of sayingI don't want tortureone could say I want compassion and show those same actors of violence compassion that they perhaps have never been given before. Happy people who feel loved do not hurt other people." It is Teal's belief that the de humanizing environment of jails and prisons does not rehabilitate criminals, it creates even worse criminals. She says it is impossible to punish someone into wellness, that punishment for crime is like fighting fire with fire, and so it is time for the justice system and the environment of jails to change. She believes that the way to eliminate abuse and criminal behavior is to change society at its root and change the way we treat those who commit acts of violence. Teal went on to say "We, as a society believe very strongly in victimhood and so, we try to control others by creating laws. And we enforce those laws with harsh punishment for all those who disobey them. Laws are not control; they are merely the physical illusion of control. They do not work in the way that they are intended to work, and they run counter to the universal truth of freedom. They will fail and they do fail. Your crime rates will keep going up if crime is approached in the way it is approached today". As our meeting came to an end, I found myself awestruck at this woman who stands today in a light of forgiveness and mercy after having lived a life of torture and pain. She demonstrates an attitude which many who have fallen victim to abuse have been incapable of achieving. She comes from a past that gives her the credibility to be able to say that a person can achieve happiness, health and success no matter what they have done in their life and no matter what was done to them. This revolutionary space is where we find Teal Scott. And if you take her message to heart, this revolutionary space is where any of us can find ourselves. 543390 127 Women Size Air Jordan 6 GS Grape ,543390 043 Air Jordan 6 Retro Turbo Green Gs Black Volt Ice Turbo Green Black Air Jordan Winterized 6 Rings Cool Grey Chlorine Blue 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013 378037 117 Womens Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue White Black Legend Blue Air Jordan Spizike Challenge Red Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Black Red 656503 601 Jordan Future True Red 646701 300 Kobe 9 EM Air Jordan 2 Infrared Cement The players on this fall's teams are the first to have to sign and comply with the new policy, which has been four years in the making and is expected to cost about $10,000 annually. The NCAA requires that Division III athletes be available for drug testing following postseason competitions, but it does not test throughout the season or year round. Under the new policy, CNU can test any athlete at any point in the year without warning. The policy is designed to deter the use of street drugs and to punish those who test positive for their use, Woollum said. CNU will not test for performance enhancing drugs. Only athletic related penalties will be used for those who fail. The first positive test will bring suspension from the team through the next semester. A second failed test means the athlete is permanently banned from competing for CNU. To develop its program, CNU consulted with the Center for Drug Free Sport, a Kansas City, Mo. based organization that handles drug testing programs for both the NCAA and numerous universities. Programs used by other schools were used to formulate the policy. They range from schools that test every athlete every month to a random system. CNU has always done some random testing, but nothing anywhere nearly this extensive. Eight years ago, fellow USA South member Methodist College instituted random drug testing for a percentage of its athletes each semester. Methodist has a three strikes policy. "I think at that time we were one of eight or nine of the Division IIIs that did testing on campus," Methodist athletic director Bob McEvoy said. "Since then, more schools are doing it on campus. We get occasional requests to share our policy with them and those kinds of things." Division III athletes are non scholarship and pay their own tuition and expenses, so there is a question as to why they would be treated any differently from a regular student or a participant in the band or other campus club. The Supreme Court has ruled that schools may test athletes because they don't have a right to be an athlete and are subject to NCAA requirements, have less expectation of privacy than participants in other extracurricular activities because they are already in situations where they dress and shower together and also because they risk injury on the playing field. "We just felt strongly that there's a very strong possibility they'll be tested in NCAA postseason play, so we want to test on site as well," McEvoy said. "It's not a surprise to them. They're aware coming in that we do test." USA South Commissioner Rita Wiggs said the conference doesn't encourage or discourage institutional drug testing at its member schools. "A lot of our schools are looking at it as a deterrent, and if it works, then it's a good program," Wiggs said. Woollum said he led the effort to institute the stepped up CNU policy, which also includes a ban on on campus alcohol consumption and use of tobacco products during any athletics related activity. It is supported by but wasn't mandated by CNU President Paul Trible. CNU has been a dry campus since 1998, and the NCAA already prohibits the use of smokeless tobacco. Woollum said that he was upset to hear people in the know talk about the pervasiveness of marijuana use among the student body. Drug Free Sport officials said marijuana is by far the drug that shows up most often in its testing. "It's frightening and it's very disheartening to me," he said. "But that only makes me more determined to make sure everybody understands this policy, all of our student athletes, and that we're very serious about it and that it can cost them their eligibility. "We have become very proactive on dealing with the whole drug issue, and if any student athlete wants to roll the dice, thinking that they may miss being tested, well then they're rolling the dice. "But if we test them and they're positive, then there are going to be some consequences." Woollum is adamant. "It's a serious problem on college campuses," he said. "Alcohol's the worst, but this is all right up there with it. "And I think if you turn your head and turn your back on it like it doesn't exist, you're doing a disservice to the young people." CNU's $10,000 price tag doubles its previous annual expenditure on drug testing and can be compared to the $20,000 Virginia Tech spends annually on drug testing. 543390 127 Women Size Air Jordan 6 GS Grape,Job seekers over 50 (and over 40) can run into real trouble getting job interviews. Before you assume it's age holding you back, make a few improvements to your resume. With the right resume know how, your age and experience will be a huge positive for you in the job search. One of the hardest things for older job seekers to do is edit your work history, but you absolutely must. No resume should be longer than 2 pages, unless you are at the C level. A too long resume says (1) "I don't know how to tailor my resume to highlight what's important for this job" and (2) "I am at least over 40 and probably over 50, which you can see from my long list of jobs." The good news is that you have a wealth of experience to create a true marketing document for yourself. That leaves you with no resume fluff only impressive, attention getting accomplishments tailored for each job you apply for. Highlight and Quantify Your Accomplishments Experience doesn't matter nearly as much as what you've accomplished. How have you helped the companies you worked for make money or save money? Describe those accomplishments using numbers, dollars, and percentages on your resume and you will have hiring managers (potential bosses) racing to interview you. Use Bullet Points, Not Paragraphs A resume looks more interesting, energetic, and relevant with bullet points plus, it's easier for the hiring manager to read and absorb your information. Don't Include Every Job You've Ever Had You only need to include the last 10 15 years of your experience. Your earlier jobs (if you have more than 20 years of experience) probably don't have much to do with what you're doing now, anyway. Leave the Dates Off Your Education In your education section, only put the degree and the school, as well as the names of any additional classes, trainings, or certifications no dates on any of them that hint at your age. Hiring managers expect that you'll have a list of references to provide them if they ask for it. Putting references on your resume (or 'References Provided Upon Request') makes your resume look outdated, and it wastes valuable space where you could be selling your skill set.

Well, the geniuses behind this eagerly awaited sequel know they can just rely on Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis. There has to be some new blood mingling with some old ghosts. Happily, the rumors swirling around the casting department have some great names floating in the hopper. So who next to strap on the Proton Packs? Anna Faris: According to MovieWeb, Faris has already been signed. No word yet on exactly what her role will be, but with Sigourney Weaver already married off to the Venkman character, we gonna need a new, charmingly innocent victim channeling the dark forces breaking through from the other side. Eliza Dushku: Why not have more than one box office babe to fill the big screen? The Epoch Times seems to agree. And Dushku has a proven track record for the supernatural. Do we detect the possibility of a slime fueled catfight? Reoww! Bill Hader and Will Forte: Where would the franchise be without a sprinkling of SNL alumni? If Venkman and Statz had kids, who better to play the role than these 2 guys? Hader needs little makeup to give him an alien look and Forte has already proven he can pull off the dry wit necessary to wear Murray oversized clown shoes. It just rumor at this point, but Fandango is on board now, it not just Baby Boomers looking forward to this sequel. With video games, comics and a goofy TV show to draw on, the franchise has a wide fan base to draw upon already.It should be a smash!
