Until two days ago, Walter Palmer was a "very private" man living in Eden Prairie, Minnesota with his wife and two children. He practised general and cosmetic dentistry from a red brick surgery in nearby Bloomington and hunted animals with a bow and arrow for leisure. Then Zimbabwean conservationists named him at a press conference on Tuesday as the killer of Cecil, a beloved lion and prime tourist attraction at the Hwange National Park. read more

Paul James Lioy, an environmental scientist known for his analysis of the health effects of the dust produced by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, died this week after collapsing at Newark Liberty International Airport. He was 68. The cause of death has not been determined, his wife Jean Lioy told the New York Times. After witnessing the dust rising from the ruins of the Twin Towers all the way from his home in Cranford, New Jersey, Lioy became one of the first scientists to gather samples and test the dust from the site. According to Lioy, three factors caused the [World Trade Center cough]. "First, cement dust was very alkaline ... that irritated the linings of the lungs. Second, glass fibers got stuck in people's upper airways ... That trapped the cement particles and enhanced the irritation. [V]ery coarse particles that comprised the vast quantity of the dust mass." read more

The state attorney general's office is asking a federal appeals court to block a judge's order that the state immediately give a transgender inmate sex-reassignment surgery. In a motion filed Monday with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the state sought a preliminary injunction that would delay the surgery for Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, 51, born Jeffrey Bryan Norsworthy, who began identifying as a woman in the 1990s. Norsworthy was diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 2000. On April 27, U.S. District Court Jon Tigar denied the state's motion to stop Norsworthy's surgery. She is serving a life sentence with the possibility of parole for a second-degree murder conviction. read more

"It's not a choice. At 12, it was not a choice."

This is an incredibly tragic news story. Examples begin of young women lured into the sex industry at the age of 18; almost always addictive drugs are the trap that keeps them cooperative in their own exploitation. However, let's not call this age bracket childhood.

Further into the story we learn of girls lured or forced into the industry around 14. This is far worse than above, but the age being exploited is adolescence. (Which by no means makes it OK.) Again, drugs are very often employed as the trap.

The story ends with a 12 year old, and now we are into child exploitation. Nevertheless, Sex Education at a younger age, when American society is so desperate to keep children's innocence intact, could go a long way to empowering these young girls entering puberty to have power over their destiny. Appropriate, non-threatening knowledge about sex & predation is vital for children.

What the story doesn't get into is that there is a sex industry for Young Children, 5, 6, 7, 8, boys and girls. An substantial market exists for this, in America & the UK (and elsewhere), by 3rd world immigrants and by our own 1st world citizens. This is the reality too unpleasant for people to want to discuss. And yes, these Children are also trapped into the industry with drugs, and "invisible children" are sometimes kidnapped & murdered. i don't subscribe to the existence of "reptilians," but people exist, sometimes in surprisingly respectable positions, with reptile minds.
