What is projectbrainsaver to me?

The society I live in uses ‘gate keepers’ to control itself. These gate keepers limit society by disallowing the passage of many whose input would be beneficial to that society.
The society, as can be seen right now, is suffering. It needs all of us to make this work.

Imagine a jigsaw. Each of us is made up from jigsaw pieces. From the beginnings of our interactions with others our own personal jigsaw pieces are put down. Some of those pieces are put into the wrong places, no matter how well meaning the intent to speed the process of growth or… whatever.
If we are unlucky we have multiple pieces hammered into the wrong places, for us, and this then sets us on an unsatisfactory roadway through life, something always feeling not quite right… but never a chance to sit down and work out what pieces were out of place and what to do to replace them and rework the knowledge trail, the story arcs, that have resulted from this hammering of wrong pieces into other place holes.
projectbrainsaver is designed to help with this.

privately. personally. without bias.

Police Family Violence Fact Sheet

Two studies have found that at least 40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, (1, 2) in contrast to 10% of families in the general population.(3) A third study of older and more experienced officers found a rate of 24% (4), indicating that domestic violence is 2-4 times more common among police families than American families in general. A police department that has domestic violence offenders among its ranks will not effectively serve and protect victims in the community.5, 6, 7, 8 Moreover, when officers know of domestic violence committed by their colleagues and seek to protect them by covering it up, they expose the department to civil liability.7

Free hugs in Liverpool city centre to remember our ‘real life angel’ Carla – Liverpool Echo

10 Aug

Carla DunphyThe family and friends of an “inspirational” DJ are planning to hand out free hugs in Liverpool city centre to mark the first anniversary of her death.The Free Hug Day, which will take place on Saturday, will be held in memory of 22-year-old Carla Dunphy-Clarkson – described as a “real life angel” by older sister Terri.Terri, 28, has organised the event, which will start at 2pm on Saturday outside St Luke’s, known as the Bombed Out Church, before moving down Bold Street.Terri said: “Carla was so loved by so many people. She had achieved so much in her short 22 years of life and she always loved to help people.“One of the best qualities she had was she could make you smile on your darkest days.“She used to randomly stop people on Bold Street and say ‘Do you want a hug?’“I looked on in embarrassment but Carla said to me ‘they might have needed that hug’ and she was right.“One act of kindness can change someone’s whole day. It could be the little glimmer of hope they need.”Terri said Carla, also known as Bert, had even inspired Liverpool singer Rebecca Ferguson to pen her track, My Best.She said the X Factor star messaged her to tell her she was thinking about Carla when she wrote the song – which is about helping people when they are down.Terri said: “Carla has inspired so many people to be more like her.“That’s the legacy she has left behind.“Carla was a big giver, she did so much for charity.“She travelled to Costa Rica for three months to help build orphanages, she abseiled down the Liver Building for charity, she was an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust and she would frequently help out with the homeless.“She was a real life angel.”Carla, originally from Belle Vale, was found hanged in her city centre flat on August 8 last year.An inquest into her death recorded a narrative verdict.But Terri said she wanted to remember the positive things about her sister.She said: “Whether you were homeless or a businessman, Carla would treat everyone the same.“Not once have I ever heard her judge someone, she would only make you feel special and loved and I am so thankful I was chosen as her sister.”Free hugs will be handed out around Bold Street from 2pm until 4pm on Saturday, before a silent disco at the Bombed Out Church – where Carla used to be a DJ.Terri is also urging people to donate to the fund to protect the future of the church, which she said was one of her sister’s favourite places.To donate to the campaign, go to crowdfunder.co.uk/Bombed-Out-Church
