How to block calls and text messages on iPhone using iOS 7 | Personal Protection Products, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray | Scoop.it

We all know how annoying repeated calls can be. It’s the same with text messages. iOS 7 includes a great feature for automatically blocking phone calls and text messages from any contacts stored on your device. It’s easy to set up and totally configurable, so if that pesky friend decides they’ve had enough of calling you, it’s possible to unblock them at a future date.

How You Can Train Your Mind To Do The Impossible

How You Can Train Your Mind To Do The Impossible | Personal Protection Products, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray | Scoop.it

We know that the human brain is a powerful organ, but many of us aren't aware of how much the mind is truly capable of -- and much more powerful it can become through deliberate training. By exercising the brain (yes, you can use repetition and habit as you do when you exercise the body), we can achieve what may have previously seemed nearly impossible.

 

A multitude of studies have linked meditation with both physical and mental health benefits, from reduced depression and anxiety to improved immune system functioning. And thanks to a line of research that looks at the brain power of of Buddhist monks -- who have devoted their lives to the practice of meditation, compassion and non-attachment -- we now know that the brain changes that result from years of mindfulness practices can be staggering.

Computer-assisted treatments help patients conquer their phobias

Computer-assisted treatments help patients conquer their phobias | Personal Protection Products, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray | Scoop.it

Dr. Jesse Wright, a psychiatrist with University of Louisville Physicians, has authored papers on the efficacy of computer-assisted therapy and offers the virtual reality therapy in his U of L office.

 

According to Wright, patients with a debilitating fear of flying need to confront that fear directly — not by relying on “avoidance behaviors” like pre-flight medication or alcohol.

 

“To really overcome it, you have to look the fear in the eye and say OK, this is nothing, really, that I need to be afraid of,” Wright said.

 

But therapists can’t go along with patients to help them get through it. That’s where the virtual reality therapy comes in.

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools | Personal Protection Products, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray | Scoop.it

The fact that knowledge is no longer fixed, but constantly evolving, and the speed at which new knowledge appears online have contributed to our sense of “information overload,” Weinberger said. And that leads to another way that our evolving sense of knowledge is transforming how we learn: We must learn to accept that true mastery is impossible.

Taser expansion for police is risky, ex-RCMP watchdog says
CBC.ca
A day after the Ontario government moved to expand the use of stun guns to front-line police officers, a man who studied their use in the RCMP says the weapons are often misused.
James Rukas's insight:
Stun Guns and Tasers Are Not the Same

Tasers are the product of Taser International and Taser is the trademarked  name for the device. Tasers are used by law enforcement across the country in  states where they have been approved for use. It is the only product that can be  used from a distance, whereas a stun gun must have direct body contact to be  effective. Tasers have a maximum range of 15 feet. Stun guns come in a variety  of shapes and sizes and are produced by several different manufacturers. There  is only one product that carries the name Taser.

Reading this article they don't seem to know the difference between a Taser and a stun gun.The title talks about Taser expanison but inside the body of the article they refer toTaser's as stun guns.
