The negative social, physical and mental health effects of childhood bullying are still evident nearly 40 years later, according to research by British psychiatrists.

I don't believe that bullying is actually to blame. Speaking as someone who has been through it and damaged by it, I can say that for my part, the damage that has been done, is damage that I allowed to happen because I was never taught to stand up for myself--in other words, how not to be a victim. This problem will continue to get worse as our culture drifts away from individual empowerment and toward institutional protection, unhealthy coddling and self-victimization.

You see the latter demonstrated in the absolute extreme in the online community of Tumblr. Thousands of ordinary men pretend to be transsexual or schizoid in order to tap into the kind of sympathy that girls receive in our culture. They pick the most extreme conditions, then complain about every possible thing as some kind of discrimination. They talk of nothing except how oppressed they are, because they have not been taught to assert themselves as men.

Even girls are suffering from this as feminists constantly shame us for what they call "blaming the victim." If you try teaching a girl how to avoid being a repeat victim, you're just blaming the victim. So girls get the impression that they shouldn't have to be responsible for their own safety, and we see them stumbling around blind drunk at 3:00 a.m. completely alone. Many is the time I have walked a girl home or called a cab, but that should not be necessary because they should have been taught better sense than that.

We will never be able to teach criminals not to be criminals, but we absolutely can teach people how not to be victims, and how to proceed through life with assertiveness and confidence, and personal accountability. We can start teaching our children once again how to earn respect, instead of manipulating others for pity, or allowing themselves to be dominated.

When a masked man snatched a four-year-old boy perched on a bench at a Sequim, Wash., playground before taking off in a minivan, frantic parents trailed the getaway vehicle -- only to learn it was a hoax. The hoax infuriated onlookers.

Twin brothers, Jason and Jeremy Holden, say they staged the kidnapping last weekend to raise awareness about child abduction, according to a local newspaper. http://cbc.sh/E4dpYbf

What do you think of this stunt?

An unmanned Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on Friday to deliver a cargo capsule to the International Space Station for NASA.

The 63-metre tall rocket, built and operated by privately owned Space Exploration Technologies, bolted off its seaside launch pad at 3:25 p.m. ET, darting through overcast skies as it headed toward orbit.

It can be challenge enough to get politicians of different stripes to congregate happily in the same room.

So how about sharing the same pool in their bathing suits — totally out of their usual element of suits and talking points, sporting goggles and flippers.

The group of politicians at this downtown Ottawa pool are part of a fitness program for MPs.

ICYMI: The "light-bulb moment" that sparked Dayna Boyer's entry into the sharing economy came when she wanted a juicer.

Maybe there would be virtue in offering a service where people could borrow or share for a time — for a modest annual fee — kitchen appliances they might not have the space to store, the money to buy or the need to possess full-time on their own.

Do you participate in the sharing economy in your community? Or would you like to see a similar initiative where you live?

The Conservative government's tough rhetoric over Russia’s actions in Ukraine may play well to some voters domestically, but analysts doubt it will have any impact on curtailing Moscow's policies in the region.

"I think the only people Putin’s going to pay any attention to, if he pays any attention at all, are going to be the United States and the European Union, above all Germany," said Randall Hansen, director of the University of Toronto's Centre for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies.

+John Weir Agree but simply dismissing "Conservatives" more specifically Harper for every "bad-thing" that happens under the proverbial sun is tiresome and rarely substantiated. More "expenditures" by Conservatives than the slashing, burning performed by previous and possible "future" party in power.
