Deadly Everest and Child Abuse

Okay, parents. Your 13 year old makes a decision that he wants to do something that has a 2 percent chance to be fatal. Do you 1) Forbid him to do it. 2) Try to talk him out of this but if he refuses to listen to your concerns, allow him to do it anyway since ...

Smith-Mundt Act Modifications Lack Protections Against Abuse by Ted Lipien While the independent, nonpartisan Committee for U.S. International Broadcasting supports some changes in the Smith-Mundt Act, we and many other media freedom advocates share grave concerns that officials of the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) will use the new legislation to abandon some foreign audiences under the ...
Pepsi drops horse show after video of animal abuse
2012-05-18 05:43:00
Soft drink maker Pepsi said on Thursday that it was dropping sponsorship of a prestigious national horse show, one day after ABC News broadcast footage of a horse in training for a show being beaten by a trainer. The Walking Horse National Celebration said that Pepsi had been a sponsor since 2010 of the nation's leading competition for Tennessee Walking Horses, a breed known for its high-stepping gait. "We have ended our sponsorship of the event," Pepsi spokesman Vincent Bozek said on Thursday without elaborating. ...

Five Philadelphia priests sanctioned in sex abuse probe
2012-05-05 00:05:00
Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput stripped five priests of their duties and apologized to their victims on Friday following an investigation into a pedophilia scandal that has rocked the Roman Catholic archdiocese. The sanctions come as the archdiocese nears the end of its investigation into 27 priests who were put on leave when a January 2011 grand jury report raised questions about their possible involvement in abusing children. ...
Video Of Racist Abuse Goes Viral, Helps Bring Perpetrator To Justice.
2012-05-03 13:30:00
One of the unique way in which Social Media is helping bring about positive change is the use of video platforms. A ‘viral’ video may not just be about funny things that happen around the globe but also about how injustice and racial abuse are meted out by certain individuals against others. These videos and the subsequent platforms like Youtube and Vimeo can help correct the wrongs. An excellent example of this is the case of a inebriated woman who hurled racist abuse at an Indian man on the London Underground. The incident occurred on the Central Line between St Paul’s and Mile End stations on January 23. Jacqueline Woodhouse had a little bit too much to drink and made a scene on the metro train. She hurled unpleasant expletives at fellow passengers and racially attacked Galbant Singh Juttla who had the presence of mind to film the entire thing. Juttla the uploaded the video that he filmed to Youtube after which the video promptly went viral. It has around 200,000 views...

Kurdish minister received UK market abuse emails: sources
2012-04-06 16:39:00
LONDON (Reuters) - Ashti Hawrami, oil minister of the semi-autonomous Kurdish region of Iraq, was the recipient of emails from a senior JP Morgan banker that the UK financial regulator this week said constituted market abuse, people familiar with the matter said. Ian Hannam quit as JPMorgan's global chairman of equity capital markets after the FSA fined him 450,000 pounds ($712,400) for divulging privileged information in two emails in 2008. Hannam, a gruff former special forces soldier, is one of Britain's most successful investment bankers and is appealing against the fine. ...
End Child Abuse & Trafficking - Video - UPDATE
2012-04-06 08:16:00
We've all watched magic shows. They are mesmerizing. You simply can't stop watching. We want to use this fascination to create something that will tell a story, engage people, and raise awareness. Ridealist has teamed up with a talented young conjurer to create a magic show to raise awareness of child abuse and human trafficking. Our theme, in general, is along the lines of "this is happening right in front of your eyes, but why can't you see it?" A smart trafficker or calculating abuser can hide their activities often as easily as a conjurer can hide the card. You know it is there, you just can't (or choose not to) see it. We want your input to expand this theme. What message would you like to see? How would you tell the story through this medium? What elements do you think are the most important to include in the script? We invite you to join us on this venture, as a full participating partner. Your non-profit, your blog, your website will be included in the credits...

1 in 10 children face elevated risk of abuse, future PTSD, due to gender no
2012-02-21 03:16:00
Children in the U.S. whose activity choices, interests, and pretend play before age 11 fall outside those typically expressed by their biological sex face increased risk of being physically, psychologically, and sexually abused, and of suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by early adulthood, according to a new study led by researchers at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). It is the first study to use a population-based sample to look at gender nonconformity as a risk factor for abuse. The study was published online February 20, 2012 and will appear in the March 2012 print issue of Pediatrics. ?The abuse we examined was mostly perpetrated by parents or other adults in the home. Parents need to be aware that discrimination against gender nonconformity affects one in ten kids, affects kids at a very young age, and has lasting impacts on health,? said lead author Andrea Roberts, a research associate in the Department of Society, Human Development, and Health at H...
Sex Abuse In Schools ? There?s An App For That!

Bullying, child abuse, trafficking in Hong Kong
2011-12-21 06:27:00
Bullying in schools, child abuse, domestic violence, and people trafficking. These are not the easiest subjects to research in Hong Kong. I might be going out on a bit of a limb here, but there does seem to be a little reluctance on the part of some to fully acknowledge the seriousness of these issues. After making half a dozen phone calls and leaving my email address, I am still waiting to receive up-to-date, contemporary figures relating to the issue of bullying in schools here. Maybe I am just being impatient. Various organisations were pretty vague. While admitting that yes, of course, there is bullying, it was not considered to be as endemic here as it is perhaps in schools in North America or Europe. A number of my colleagues who have school-age children said pretty much the same thing. I also learned there is not - at least to the best of anyone's knowledge - a service such as provided by SHOUTwithCAABS here in the SAR.One group that does seem to be taking bullying very seri...
Elder law awareness: 46-year old Minnesota man commits elder abuse against
2011-12-17 01:23:00
As a family member ages, he can become more dependent on his healthier spouse or grown children to care for him, keep him healthy, and continue to protect him as his health fails.Unfortunately, sometimes the tables are turned.According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, about two-thirds of all elder abuse perpetrators are exactly those whom the victim might have trusted most. Financially dependent spouses or adult children are the most likely to take advantage of the elder’s financial resources. Sadly, this is often due to alcohol and drug abuse.Dementia is a leading risk factor in all kinds of elder abuse, including financial exploitation. Even senior citizens who suffer from a milder form of cognitive impairment, not yet recognized or diagnosed, can be vulnerable.Elder law professionals are tremendous advocates for senior citizens who need to protect their resources, but the largely secretive and unreported nature of the crimes makes supporting the rights of t...
Child abuse and bullying In Hong Kong schools
2011-12-13 13:49:00
We recently connected with a U.K.-based group called @SHOUTwithCAABS on twitter, an advanced and net-savvy organisation dedicated to ending bullying in schools and providing a service to abused children.CAABS - the Child Abuse - Anti Bullying System is - is a unique system that allows victims to report incidents of abuse or bullying with just three clicks of a computer mouse.From their website:CAABS Report is a very easy to use visualised 'Early Identification and Reporting System'. Designed for school computers, CAABS allows children from as young as 5 years old to be able to report child safety issues without any of the traditional barriers thatare currently associated with preventing many children from reporting.It got us wondering what the situation was like here in Hong Kong, and indeed if any systems like CAABS existed here. Our first enquiries among parents and some children's welfare groups have indicated that no, nothing like this is available in Hong Kong. But the respo...
Women?s post-natal depression linked to partners? abuse: study
2011-12-07 15:44:00
Forty percent of women who suffer depression after childbirth are abused either physically or emotionally by their partners, researchers in Australia said on Wednesday, calling on health workers to be more alert to such cases. ?That is a very important message to get out to health professionals,? said Hannah Woolhouse at Murdoch Children?s Research Institute in Victoria, Australia. ?If they are working with women with post-natal depression, they should consider the possibility that partner violence may be contributing to that.? Possible solutions included offering treatment to the abusive partner, counseling for such couples, or even shelter for abused women, she said in a telephone interview.

Bisexual women, more likely than bisexual men, to be depressed and abuse al
2011-11-09 03:34:00
Bisexual women are more likely than their male counterparts to suffer from depression and stress and to binge-drink, according to a new national study led by George Mason University researcher Lisa Lindley. Bisexual women also are at greater risk to smoke and be victimized, the research finds. ?Why?? Lindley wonders. ?That?s what we keep asking.? She has some theories. ?Bisexuals are often invisible,? she says of bisexual women. ?There?s a lot of prejudice against them. They?re told ?You?re confused?pick one.? There tends to be this expectation or standard that a person picks one sexual identity and sticks with it. I think there?s a lot of misunderstanding about bisexuals. I think their risk has a lot more to do with stigma.?
Teens With Social Anxiety Disorder At High Risk For Alcohol & Drug Abuse

A study published online October 17, 2011 in the journal Pediatrics indicates that teens with social anxiety disorder, or social phobia, tend not to receive treatment for this psychiatric disorder because parents and teachers may assume the teens are just very shy.  But shyness is not even a prerequisite for the determination of social anxiety disorder....
A Heartbreaking Story of Elder Abuse and Legal Thievery
2011-09-04 22:26:00
by Jim Fargiano Until relatively recently, I was unaware of how rampant elder abuse is within the legal court system. For almost the last two decades, my life has been consumed by helping as many people as I could in a different way than most give help. I have informally counseled and helped thousands of people through the publishing of my book, as well as in private sessions as a medium/psychic. It was not until my good friend started to share her story with me that my eyes were opened to something far more prevalent than I was cognizant of; at least on a conscious level. I have been privileged to know Diane for over five years. During that span, she has never been anything but helpful, loving and compassionate to everyone. Doing what I do for a living generally makes me able to be a pretty good judge of character. Ironically, it is a judge and his decisions that prompted me to write this article. The choices and attitude he has expressed have been protected by legal statutes. Wh...
Ex- Sathya Sai Baba Students Could Aid Sex Abuse Change In India. But Will
2011-08-05 06:45:00
A few years ago, I addressed an 'open letter' to my former Whitefield College Students. On re-reading, I see that its terms can fairly be addressed (give or take the occasion specific reference) to all alumni, past and present. There have been so many revelations of great and pervasive corruption both in Sathya Sai Baba himself and in many of his officials (especially his core servitors) that it may not go amiss to post this communication here. Thousands of Sathya Sai education alumni face a dilemma not only in their immediate communities but wherever they may settle or travel. It is hard to imagine a major education institution in which a founder and certain teachers and Trust officials have been so deeply embroiled in scandal. But when, with searching analyis and deeply thought-through remedial action, what can be so terrible can, with great good will, be transformed into something that is so wonderful. And these alumni, potentially, are faced with a great challenge. Examples ...
Video of Some Primary Witnesses of Sathya Sai Sex Abuse, and Sai Cult Cover
2011-07-26 01:46:00
Those of you who are psychologists, police etc., do please kindly confer with your colleagues who specialize in body language, and voice prints. There are those of us, including myself, who are happy to submit to FBI-certified lie-detector or today's other leading-edge tests for truthfulness. I here challenge Sathya Sai Baba's servitors, who stand accused, to undergo the same tests. My opinion of them, carefully formed over many years, is that they are too cowardly and too guilty ever to do so ....... These are but a couple of forensic areas where those in the Sathya Sai Central Trust and International Sathya Sai Organization can, I assert, be soundly exposed, and our witnesses around the world be shown to be telling the truth. Large numbers of former followers and other critics of Sathya Sai Baba and his Cult have been branded liars and deceivers. These we are not, as we wish to put beyond doubt as cases come are heard in properly-constituted Courts of law, television interviews...
Will Court Decision Topple A Top Sathya Sai Teacher? Male Sexual Abuse Case
2011-07-22 11:36:00
STOP PRESS! Breaking NEWS ...... This morning, Friday, I received important news, the details of which are being wrapped up in an Indian High Court today. Until I access the notes, I shall wait and examine the details, and check on what those on the spot have to report. Witnesses to the court proceedings made such comments as: "Our side had only three 'suits' (ed. i.e., lawyers or solicitors). The Sathya Sai lot had no fewer than thirteen!! Our three advocates ran rings around them. The judge removed the gag". One of the family members I spoke to, who along with other family, have long suffered the effects of Sai betrayal, was so overjoyed at the routing of a formidable accomplice of Sathya Sai Baba that he told me: "I was so happy that I leapt into my swimming pool forgetting that I had my Sat(ellite)Phone in my pocket. I have to get a new one" .... Prison Sentence - More Sentences To Come? I can attest that there is growing determination among those who have t...
Oprah Winfrey Show On Male Sexual Abuse: Sathya Sai Baba Cult Survivors Sho
2011-07-21 02:23:00
At this juncture of preparations to litigate against those in the Sathya Sai Organization or allied with it who have sexually abused, or permitted to be abused, I copy below some details and links relating to a November 2010 Oprah Winfrey Special on sexual abuse of males. It is important for those survivors of Sathya Sai Baba's and his accomplices serial wrongdoings to raise their awareness of a number of psychological and social issues, including various forms of remediation that are available. I had earlier spoken to an Oprah Winfrey producer about the Sathya Sai cult cases, but nothing came of it. Activists - strong in the truth and justice of their cause - who take on powerful antagonists invariably come to know two things especially. They learn how powerful vested interests are, and to what extraordinary lengths they will go to defame, libel, threaten and bully, and to distort and lie. They also know that only dogged persistence, unblinking, unyielding, will finally win the...
Young Male Sex Abuse: Legal ?Locomotive? Hurtles Towards Sai Baba?s Accompl
2011-07-19 12:11:00
Important Breakthrough! Litigation against the Sathya Sai Baba forces of serial sexual and other criminal abuses is now powerfully on the move. World class law firms are being consulted. Millions of dollars are on call for this fight on behalf of one of history's profoundly righteous causes. Litigation against the Sathya Sai Baba cult is aimed at holding accountable Sathya Sai officials and other enablers complicit in permitting and covering up his, and others', wide-scale, serial sexual and other criminal abuses. Thus, our Sathya Sai Baba cult exposure now moves into a whole new phase. An impressive array of former Sathya Sai Baba alumni and others stand ready to use formidable wealth to show India and the world that corruptors of the young can, and must be, unmasked. Former Sai Baba devotees have fought, in the two decades, a gruelling, uphill, international campaign. They expect, soon enough, resounding vindication. From the moment ex-devotees spoke out truthfully - which ...
Young Male Sex Abuse: International Legal Challenge Will Confront Key Sathy
2011-07-19 11:49:00
Those Sathya Sai Baba accomplices who have so grievously outraged the innocence of boys and young men over many years had best not underestimate the sheer punching power and international outreach of law firms now being consulted. I am assured that they are able, via their experience and alliances in South Asia, to sort out the sheep and the goats in the Indian legal system. Already some of Sathya Sai Baba's officials know ? to their considerable cost ? that three strong legal actions have already succeeded against them. It was unfortunate that, hitherto, these were settled out of court with mutual non-disclosure agreements. However, they should remember that there remain legal pathways ahead that they will not rejoice in facing. Those who wish to litigate or in other ways support legal actions against those who supported the years of homosexual abuse of boys and young men, and other abuses, can, with assurance of strict confidentiality contact my close and trusted colleague Rob...
Deliver us from Evil Priests: On Cases of Child Abuse in the Catholic Churc
2011-07-11 02:48:00
Deliver us From Evil When the documentary Deliver us from Evil came out, I shunned it at first for two reasons. I knew that it would affect me emotionally, so I was reluctant to go through it. Child abuse is a touchy subject and especially in a documentary you cannot pretend it did not happen or that it is a work of fiction. My second reason was that I did not want the documentary to stain the image and respect I have for the institution of the Catholic Church. Despite its various shortcomings, I could not help feeling admiration for its traditions that have managed to exist and last for about two thousand years. Needless to say, I was in a state of shock and torpor after watching the documentary. No, I do not believe it is merely a ?witch hunt? or propaganda against the Church, since those were real children affected by the horrific actions of various priests. I was mainly appalled by the statements of Father O' Grady. He took everything so lightly and did not seem to realize the...
Patriarchy is the ultimate cause of all abuse against women?
2011-06-22 13:00:00
Pastor Versus Feminist Patriarchy is the ultimate cause of all abuse against women. This one small sentence sure does pack a punch doesn?t it? Do I buy that 100%?  No.  I do think at times patriarchy can be a contributing factor to abuse towards? WELL anyone! I have family, and I have known families that tend to live by the ?father rule?.  If the sentence, ?patriarchy is the ultimate cause of all abuse against women? you would see it in every instance of patriarchy. You don?t find that to be the case, because not all people view patriarchy as authority and power based. I?m talking a heart and attitude issue here more than anything.  My uncle for example would NEVER use the trump card, ?I have the last word? type of thing.  He respected and loved his wife to much to even condone such a stand.   I realize some people would think their decision making within their household would come to standstill.  Guess what? It didn?t.  Matter of f...

Indian Army Abuse ? A Young Indian?s View
2011-02-25 00:27:00
I received this note from a young person living in India. Interestingly, in this person's report, the Indian army comes off badly and not the police. In the years that I lived in India, many Indians had great respect for the army but widely despised the police for their cruelty and corruption. Whatever the case, Sathya Sai Baba is heavily surrounded by both police and army personnel all the way to the very highest echelons. These days, he is very fragile, his thoughts and actions unfocused, but he still rides around on his huge gold chariot, mounts his golden throne, and celebrates his birthdays with an enormously extravagant and wasteful pomp that attracts the scorn of most and the blinded fervour of his devotees.

No Place For Abuse
2010-12-13 14:00:00
One of the very first faith related books I read on domestic violence within the church was 'No Place For Abuse' by Catherine Clark Kroeger and Nancy Nason-Clark.  I was reminded again about this book, but I was far from crazy about the description or review. I remember I was flooded at the time with mixed messages within the faith community that I couldn't figure out WHAT was WHAT!  It was clear to me right away that most didn't realize the impact this has on everyone involved.  I remember doing searches for domestic violence in the church, and very little besides the list of abusive behaviors was present at that time. Thankfully, that has changed in some ways today.  I started this blog at the time, because I wanted to keep track of what 'little' material there was available. I looked for this book on Amazon today, and the book cover is different now.  Focus Ministries  sent this to me after I spoke with them on the phone.  I remember s...
Sathya Sai Baba Abuse Survivors: When ?Moving On? Can Be Staying Stuck
2010-12-05 23:01:00
Some former devotees of Sathya Sai Baba Sai Baba, though not most, get upset that many survivors of his sexual and other forms of abuse do not public. They make make the same kind of mistaken assumptions that Sai Baba's defenders make who ask e.g., where is all the proof? Both these reactions are ill-informed, inappropriate and insensitive. People who are badly traumatized - very typically - feel acute difficulty in being able to talk about their traumatic experience. One human reaction to trauma lack of awareness of the extent of what upheaval has occurred. Psychological denial, and wanting to 'move on' are common. See: On Leaving the Sathya Sai Baba Cult (Part 1.)- Ex Leaders and Rank-and-File and On Leaving A Powerful Global Cult. Sathya Sai Baba Example (Part 2) On Leaving A Powerful Global Cult. Sathya Sai Baba Example (Part 3) It is known that a great many survivors endure years in silence and shame at what has happened to them. The case of those who have suffered...
People that redefine abuse for motive
2010-11-29 14:00:00
Look out for teachers that redefine words and concepts! It seems we need to find a way to separately define common abuse (a general failure to love as we ought) and damaging abuse (serious, habitual harm to another person). For instance, if a man neglects or speaks unkindly to his wife (and this goes both ways) he has in fact abused her. She was given to him to love and cherish; yet, he has failed to love her as he loves himself. And in a husband?s case, he has also failed to love her as Christ loved the church. He has sinned. He should repent and win back his wife?s trust. Still, most of us would not view him as an ?abuser.? We can?t go around labeling every person who sins against others an ?abuser,? unless we?re willing to claim that label for ourselves as well (Romans 2:1-3). The first paragraph assumes that most of the world doesn?t recognize a ?pattern of behavior? when speaking about abusive behavior. The author herself as taken it upon herself to 'redefine' the word, a...
Deceitful Practice of Educating on Abuse
2010-11-24 17:19:00
I have noticed in some circumstances in which people speak about abuse they tend to ?generalize? it, or even try to incorporate everything they see sinful into the definition.  You might ask WHY they would do this, and I have begun to see a pattern.  They do this so they don?t have to deal with what they seem to see as more ?minor? offenses to them.   They twist the definition to show that ?everyone? is guilty.  That way it can be addressed in a more general manner, and dealt with as such as well.    HOW everyone can be sinful at one time or another, and downright hinting how everyone can be abusive. The strange part of that is then they generally go into HOW the word abuse is over used.  What do they think they just did themselves? Pattern of Behavior What they seem to not deal with is the part of the definition that speaks of ?pattern?.  There is a pattern of behavior.   They take an individual that may have done something ...
Tyler Perry Reveals Child Abuse Horror On Oprah
2010-10-21 15:12:00
Actor and director Tyler Perry has given an emotional interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show about the child abuse that he suffered growing up, and he also revealed that his first sexual experience with a woman was a friend's mother at the age of just 10. The 'Why Did I Get Married' director talked about the molestation and abuse that he suffered during his childhood in New Orleans, Louisiana for the show which will be aired next week and he said that there is one "disgusting" sexual encounter that he won't forget. Perry, 41, then told Oprah about when his childhood friend's mother took advantage of him. He said: "I hear arguing from the living room, she comes in... We were in the bedroom. She throws him in the bathroom and says, 'You need to take a bath and go to bed,' and she tells me to go home, and I go to the door to try and unlock the door... and I couldn't unlock it. "She lays on the sofa and spreads her legs - I didn't know she was wearing lingerie at the ti...

Abuse of power
2010-08-23 22:50:00
Nothing, and I mean Absolutely Nothing, infuriates me more than the abuse of power. So my dander was raised after, in rapid succession last week, I saw three stories of overzealous police and/or peace officers using excessive violence.
Sathya Sai Baba and the Law. Is A Real Pro-Con Discussion Possible?
2010-08-05 07:19:00
This post relates to my previous one: Why Have Ex-Devotees Not Landed Sathya Sai Baba In Jail? - Posted by Barry Pittard on July 31, 2010. Implicit is the hope that the articulate enquirer who first wrote to this site is not - although separate data indicates that he is Sathya Sai Baba devotee - an apparachik working hand-in-glove with the Sathya Sai Organization. After all, many who have approached us were once in the role of enquirer. Some took a year or more before they were able to transit from the position of troubled devotees to one in which they, having seriously investigated, saw the substance of various kinds of allegations against Sathya Sai Baba and his key servitors. My reader will, I think, quickly get a gist of the correspondence. As can be seen from the post cited above, I first requested that the writer of the email sent to this blogsite confirm the email status. I then wrote some points, along with links I thought may help elucidate the writer's query. The reply...

Posted by Barry Pittard on July 20, 2010 ...............................-...............................-... In the article: Sathya Sai Baba Organization?s Betrayal of Love and Compassion, I wrote (referring to Terry Gallagher, the first head of the Australian Sathya Sai Organization, who at first hand probed allegations about Sathya Sai Baba's serial sexual abuse of boys and young men, and consequently resigned): At length by telephone, he told me that, against extraordinary unwillingness of devotees to look at the allegations, he had done what he could to investigate and surface the terrible facts about Sai Baba?s serial sexual abuse of young males. He told me that he had extensively shown documentation to Va...
A Sathya Sai Saga. Barry Pittard Recollects. Part 3

The series continues from: A Sathya Sai Saga. Barry Pittard Recollects. Part 2. Posted by Barry Pittard on July 23, 2010. A Sathya Sai Saga. Barry Pittard Recollects. Part 1. Posted by Barry Pittard on July 20, 2010 Apart from Terry Gallagher, the other two individuals whose articles appeared in the Nexus magazine also had respected histories as Sathya Sai Baba devotees. One of the articles related the frightening escape experiences of wife and husband Gurprit and Jens Singh (Germany), who sought the assistance of the (then) Federal West German Embassy in New Delhi. I have written of this couple here: ?BILD? Story. ?Guru Wants Sex? (Sathya Sai Baba). The other author was Hans de Kraker (Australia). Sathya Sai Baba appointed de Kraker Western Canteen Director, a position he held from 1989 to 1997. Nexus magazine covers many stories which the media has not run or else run extensively. There is sworn testimony in both these cases.
