I enjoy your videos very much Steve.

 Question:  Have you come across a method for integrating Evernote for use doing academic research?

 I teach several grad courses in research and would like to find a way that keeps research writing from being a fourteen week root canal.

Many of you may have been engaged in the fight against infringing on the rights of free speech and expression that was the SOPA legislation. I certainly was.

The fact that this incredibly self-serving piece of corporate sponsored legislation was defeated is remarkable for two reasons.

First, as demonstrated by Wikipedia and Google, among many other online companies, the power to limit information and content sought by the entertainment industry through this bill was outrageous in the extreme.

Second, for the first time of which I am aware, the internet was used effectively to go fang to fang against the interests of corporate lobbyists and their clients.

Demonstrating the effect of the proposed legislation, and actively engaging to have such decidedly obsequious legislation presented by members of congress withdrawn, are potential hallmarks for citizen action in the future.

Liberty and the rights to enjoy those freedoms extended through the Constitution of the United States of America were given public voice in real time by the American people.

Wednesday, with the withdrawal of the SOPA legislation was a good day for America.

A good friend of mine, Marsha Lucas, has written a great new self-help book: Rewire Your Brain for Love: Creating Vibrant Relationships Using the Science of Mindfulness.

You've probably heard that there's hope for our brains as adults — we can change and grow new brain pathways. Marsha's written this book about how to create and strengthen the pathways involved in love and relationships.

She's focused on seven relationship benefits of mindfulness meditation that are supported by neuroscience research. Best of all, she's made it all very readable, entertaining, and do-able.

Take a look. You'll like what you see :-)

Story
Introduction

As a Viet Nam combat veteran (11th Cavalry 67-68), I am a speaker, advocate, and writer.  My focus is recovery from combat induced PTSD. 

Supporting our troops, veterans, and their families as they work their way through recovery from PTSD is the reason I am actively engaged on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media venues. 

Although I served eight years as a volunteer and staff counselor at the Anchorage Vet Center, I am not a clinician.  My comments and observations are based on my own experience of living with combat induced PTSD for the past 40+ years. 

When Our Troops Come Home is a FREE ebook that I wrote between 1980 and 1984 as I was working through the first steps in my own recovery from combat PTSD.  

When Our Troops Come Home was used in combat debriefing groups at the Vet Center as a way of describing a trail that other combat vets could follow on their own recovery journey. 

As I began to see the effects of PTSD on our OIF/OEF troops and veterans I decided that I needed to do something to help our current generation of warriors. 

The result was that I posted the two ebooks as FREE downloads at www.scribd.com and began tweeting about combat PTSD.

During the time I was at the Vet Center we formed a group of hard core combat vets.  Our purpose was to work through our own issues, and to see if we could make some sense from our experience of combat in Viet Nam.

This combat debriefing group worked together for 15 months.  As we shared our experiences we found similar patterns.  These patterns, which describe a way of thinking about the traumatization progression of combat, are described in the second FREE ebook, Life After Combat.

Life After Combat is also available as a FREE download at www.scribd.com

To date approximately 72,000 copies of these two FREE ebooks have been read by our troops, veterans, and their loved ones.  I hope that you will find these two ebooks useful.
