Brandy Cole tried to shield her only child from the struggles that filled their small brick home on the west side of St. Louis, but it was not easy.Sometimes young Jayson Tatum would find that the gas had been cut off because of unpaid bills, so his mother would turn on the clothes dryer for heat, or warm water on a stovetop for baths. On cold nights, she would plug in a small space heater in her bedroom and hold her son close.When the electricity went out in the evening, she sometimes turned on her car’s headlights so Jayson could at least play on an illuminated basketball court.“When he was young, it was hard to explain,” she said. “You just have to make hard decisions. Like, if they’re talking about cutting off the gas, but it’s summer, you just figure out how you can get it back on before winter.”The most humbling moments came when food was scarce. Brandy, who had Jayson when she was a freshman in college, sometimes baby-sat for a neighbor … [Read more...] about Jayson Tatum is at the door. ‘He has a passion to be great’

It was a delicate operation that had become a daily routine — extracting ever tinier doses of the antidepressant she had taken for three years, on and off, and was desperately trying to quit.“Basically that’s all I have been doing — dealing with the dizziness, the confusion, the fatigue, all the symptoms of withdrawal,” said Toline, 27, of Tacoma, Washington. It took nine months to wean herself from the drug, Zoloft, by taking increasingly smaller doses.“I couldn’t finish my college degree,” she said. “Only now am I feeling well enough to try to re-enter society and go back to work.” Advertisement Long-term … [Read more...] about Long-term use of antidepressants is surging in the US
Every morning, Liza wakes up and remembers that she’s been tortured. When she looks down at her hands, she can see slightly raised bumps where she believes she’s been implanted with microchips. She is certain that the chips track her every move, that her family has been programmed not to listen to her. She knows that her mind had been pushed to the limits of human endurance (“the most pain you could put on a person before they die”). The targeting, the rewiring of her brain, is so extreme that she can no longer even cry. Liza is 56, a thin, wiry woman with elf-like ears and bright eyes, an artist who grew up in the Rocky Mountains. She worked at Microsoft for 10 years and started her own web development company with her partner before the electronic attacks, the stalking, and the surveillance began. She knew it had to be some form of technology attacking her—she’d worked in the technology industry for more than a decade. She knew what it was capable … [Read more...] about Mind Games: The Tortured Lives of ‘Targeted Individuals’

I am finding it hard to be interested in this device though. With the launch of so many new operating systems on Big Red the time I will spend in choosing the phone for me is much longer. I am a multimedia addict and expect that the Motorola STD is really what I would want. Though the look and feel of this phone is really wonderful. I just find the operating system so dated and basic. The other thing is that the internals are weak. With phones launching with real powerhouse processing power blackberry feels behind the curve. But they stand and hold a stable and powerful spot in the market delivering solid products overall. posted on 12 Oct 2009, 13:53 0 2. vzw fanman (Posts: 1976; Member since: 11 Dec 2008) the the software between my storm now and the storm 2 isn't much different so it shouldn't be much better. im not … [Read more...] about Comments for : BlackBerry Storm2 9520 to launch this week; 9550 to be released in November by Verizon?
