Couple questions alternative healing groups activities on Haida Gwaii

first_imgBy Rob SmithAPTN InvestigatesSome people on Haida Gwaii think Earth People’s United (EPU) is a cult.Others disagree.Laura Duthiel said peer pressure and shaming, combined with hallucinogenic drug use, were key components of how leader Erik Gonzales controlled her when she was a member. She ingested drugs that paralyzed her for what she estimates to be eight hours. It was for her a “coma-like state.”For her it had nothing to do with healing.Tom Greene’s concern began at a public meeting in the town of Skidegate when he asked about a youth exchange to Guatemala. He had just recently heard of violence in that country on the news. When he raised the issue he was assured by employees of the Nygstle Society, a cultural healing organization, that the youth were safe.Green claims he was shocked afterward when a man warned him he was taking on the cult.Haida youth have travelled to EPU’s Deer Mountain Center located on 1,700 acres of land northeast of Yreka in Northern California. Youth have also been to EPU’s compound on the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. You can see them on EPU’s self-produced videos on YouTube.Seven years ago Raven Ann Potschka was one of those youth. She confirmed to APTN Investigates the types of drugs used in Gonzales’ ceremonies. These include peyote, ayahuasca, amanita, and psilocybin. Potschka calls them medicine.“We are doing things as a family, a spiritual family we are doing these ceremonies together for support and we are also all learning together for me I benefited greatly,” she added.However Tom Greene told us about a story a young woman told him. She told him that when she was in Guatemala she lost her memory for two or three days. She told Greene she suspects it’s because of the drugs she ingested.When APTN Investigates contacted the woman and repeated the story Greene told us and asked for an interview.“I didn’t want anyone to know about that,” she said and hung up.Potschka says a scenario like that makes her uncomfortable, but she says she has never seen anyone have a negative reaction during the ceremonies.“Whenever we go out of country we have Elders with us. I feel it’s a super safe environment,” said Potschka.Haida leader Guujaaw wouldn’t comment on the youth’s memory loss. The former president of the Haida Nation believes that the drugs are valuable medicine. He admits he does ceremonies but not with Gonzalez. He says that compared to alcohol and cocaine these drugs are relatively “benign.”Dutheil disagrees.She says amanita is poisonous and it took her months to recover after suffering what she terms an overdose.The local RCMP are also concerned. Last fall they took the unusual step of placing a warning in the local newspaper.It read in part: “The Masset RCMP is urging the public to think critically about the use of these so-called ‘healing’ or ‘spiritual’ drugs. Not only are some of these substances illegal in Canada but it has been reported that they can produce negative long-term side effects.”Local doctors were also alarmed by the rise in “spiritual” drug use. Quoted in a CBC report, Dr. Harvey Thommasen said, “people aren’t being told what they are taking.”The doctor was particularly concerned by the use of amanita in ceremonies. It’s a local mushroom he called a deadly poison.Haida Elder Fred Russ says amanita was used by medicine men in the old days, but those healers worked with the substance all their life. They knew how to mix it and only used it one-on-one for specific reasons. Never in large groups.The other group being discussed in Haida Gwaii is Psychology of Vision. Despite its name, the two founders Lency and Chuck Spezzano are not psychologists.In fact, Charles Spezzano was fined in 2004 for acting like a psychologist while not being licensed by the state of Hawaii.Chuck Spezzano told APTN Investigates that because he works internationally he doesn’t need to be licensed. He said he is not a psychologist and calls himself “a coach.”But he says the work he does is indeed psychology.Dutheil says the POV sessions were a horrible experience for her.Potschka agrees. She said what POV offers is “deep group therapy sessions.” And when she attended, the community members were not told what they were getting into.Duthiel says she witnessed people crying and throwing up in the sessions she attended.“Your personal boundaries, they are breaking that down and they are exposing you are pretty much giving yourself over,” she said.But, despite that, she kept on going to the sessions.“Like an addiction, you gotta go. And just never ending you almost got dependent on it. You begin to realize you don’t have any other friends, just the friends that were in that group,” she added. “You leave your family behind to go be with this other family.”But Dutheil says it was never made clear what exactly was done. Explanations were vague.“It never was explained to us what that really means. They want to call it whatever they want to call and make us believe we are advancing is some way. But you’re in a controlled environment and you are being controlled,” she said.APTN Investigates asked Charles Spezzano to explain one of the many type of healing methods POV uses. It’s called an “original mind download.”“It’s a blessing. And if you’ve ever received a blessing where you can feel it, that’s what a download is meant to be,” he replied.How does that help a person looking for healing, we asked.“Basically it provides some wholeness. Where there was a split mind or conflict or something like that, it brings peace,” he said.We asked him how one becomes qualified to do a download.“Well, first of all, you experience it and then you learn how to pass it on,” Spezzano replied.The Spezzano’s are shocked that they are being accused of being a cult and that the work they are doing is dangerous. Chuck Spezzano claims more than 40 years’ experience. Lency Spezzano claims they are a great help to First Nations. She says that wherever POV goes, there is a cultural renaissance in the community.They help people, insists Charles.What they do not do is disempower people in order to take their money, he added.rsmith@aptn.calast_img read more

Afghanistan Senior UN official deplores Taliban use of child in suicide blast

14 December 2008The United Nations envoy to Afghanistan has strongly condemned a suicide bombing, “allegedly” using a 13-year-old boy, against British forces in the south of the violence-wracked nation. The attack, which killed three marines, “again demonstrates the Taliban”s total disrespect for human rights,” Kai Eide, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General, said in a statement issued today.“My thoughts are with the family and friends of those killed and wounded,” he added.Taliban militia sent a young boy to carry out the bombing against British troops operating in the Sangin district of Afghanistan”s southern Helmand province on Friday.“Such unscrupulous use of children cannot be justified under any circumstances. Forcing or coercing children directly into such action is wholly unacceptable by anyone”s standards,” said Mr. Eide.The Special Representative urged the Taliban and all others to stop using children in warfare, stressing that “the rights of children must be fully protected.” read more

Hudsons Bay says even employee discounts have been affected by the lower

TORONTO – Cross-border shopping in the United States isn’t so hot anymore, even when you’ve got an employee discount.Hudson’s Bay Co. chief executive Jerry Storch told analysts on Friday the buying habits of the company’s Canadian staff have noticeably shifted.“Even our own people with discounts don’t shop in the U.S. anymore,” he said in a conference call for the company’s latest quarterly results.Hudson’s Bay, which operates Saks and Lord and Taylor stores in the U.S., is facing a significant challenge from the rise of the greenback, which has knocked the wind out of the U.S. tourism industry.Vacationers often spend big amounts of money on luxury goods at its U.S. stores, but without them a void has been left behind.Storch said currency exchange rates have become “one of the biggest issues” for the department store chain.But the tourism slowdown isn’t only from fewer Canadians.“We’ve also seen essentially the disappearance of the Russians altogether,” Storch said before pointing to the troubled economy in Brazil and problems in Europe with the weakened euro.“It’s been pretty much across the board.”Late Thursday, Hudson’s Bay (TSX:HBC) cut its sales outlook for 2015 and 2016 based partly on exchange rates and the aftermath of terrorism in Europe that has left a dent in the performance of its newly-acquired Kaufhof department stores, a deal that finalized in late September.Just over a month later, Hudson’s Bay was facing the ripple effects of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Nov. 13.“Our stores in Belgium, which of course were the epicentre of the following investigations, were closed for many days,” Storch said.“It has taken a long time for traffic to return.”In Germany, where most of its Kaufhof stores operate, customer traffic was impacted by a bomb threat at a soccer stadium in Hannover, Storch said.Considering those factors, Hudson’s Bay reduced its 2015 sales forecast to a range of US$10.7 billion to $11.2 billion from its previous expectation of $11 billion to $11.5 billion.Sales guidance for 2016 has been pulled back to $14.2 billion to $15.2 billion from $14.5 billion to $15.5 billion.Despite the headwinds in the current period, Hudson’s Bay delivered a 34 per cent increase in sales for the third quarter. Both North America and Europe saw a boost in both in-store and e-commerce sales.Net earnings for the period ended Sept. 30 were $1 million, compared with a net loss of $13 million in the comparable year-earlier period.Storch said Hudson’s Bay is looking for ways to lessen the impact of unfavourable currency exchange rates.Part of the plan includes shifting its strategy for Saks Off Fifth that focuses on building U.S. stores further away from the Canadian border.“We’ll start to distance us from this border effect as we look to the future,” he said.Saks is also setting up shop within Canada. The company will open two department stores in the Toronto area next year, and has said there is room for another five to seven locations in other key urban centres across the country.Follow @dj_friend on Twitter. Saks & Company in New York is shown in this Aug. 15, 2011 file photo. The CEO of Hudson’s Bay Co. says his own Canadian staff appear to be skipping out on the perks of saving an extra percentage off the store’s prices in the United States at their Saks and Lord and Taylor stores.

GEEK PICK OF THE DAY Legend of Zelda Master Sword Letter Opener

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target I love The Legend of Zelda. Link to the Past and Link Between Worlds are two of my favorite games, and Breath of the Wild was a masterpiece for a launch game. Part of the reason is because Link’s sword is so cool. The Master Sword is one of the long-running elements of the series, and while most games have different Links and Zeldas spanning across different timelines, they almost all have the same Master Sword. It’s the Sword of Evil’s Bane, kept sleeping in the Lost Woods for ages until it’s needed.It’s also a pretty rad letter opener from ThinkGeek. Yes, of course I have a life-size Master Sword because I attend comic book conventions and don’t bat an eye at spending $40 on stupid things, but it’s not really legal to carry around or keep at my desk. And that’s why this $19.99 letter opener is so great.The Legend of Zelda Master Sword Letter Opener is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a metal letter opener shaped like the Master Sword, based on the Twilight Princess design with the royal blue pommel, the dark teal wrap on the grip, the gold accent on the hilt, and the slightly flared section of the blade near the hilt bearing the Triforce logo.Its metal, but not steel or even particularly sharp. It’s a letter opener, and all you need is the very slight blade edge and a good point to cut open envelopes. It feels like a zinc alloy common for metal collectibles this size, but with a nice chrome finish on the blade.The Master Sword needs a place to sleep until it’s needed, and that’s why it comes with a gray resin pedestal with a dark gray Triforce symbol on it. It looks like the pedestal for the Master Sword in Ocarina of Time. It’s simple, but looks good.This is a fun letter opener/desk prop that lets you show off how much you like Zelda, cut open envelopes, and possibly dispel magic barriers. You can order it from ThinkGeek.center_img Geek Pick: Shure MV88+ Is An Excellent, On the Go Microphone KitGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls last_img read more

What the Hell is Going on With the Flash Movie

first_img The DC Films are and have been wracked with problems. In terms of upcoming projects, few are more worrying than The Flash, which has gone through multiple directors and doesn’t even have a potential release date.Now it’s reported the script is getting a page-one rewrite, meaning that it’s getting almost entirely redone.Joby Harold, whose resume only has a few big-budget credits, including the upcoming Guy Ritchie, flick King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, has been tasked with doing the rewrite.Additionally, the film has already gone through two directors: Seth Grahame-Smith–most known for writing Pride and Prejudice and Zombies–and Rick Famuyiwa, who directed the 2015 indie hit Dope. Famuyiwa left the project in October over creative differences.Both the directors did drafts. Grahame-Smith wrote the original script and was attached to make his directorial debut with The Flash before departing, and Famuyiwa did a rewrite when he was brought on. He said he was excited to work on the project and bring his “voice, humor, and heart” to it. However, it’s been said Warner Bros. didn’t like the script or story, which supposedly had more edge.Warner Bros. executives are working on the new script while Ezra Miller, who’s going to star as Barry Allen, films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. They’re taking their time finding a replacement director.The only thing that has been consistent about The Flash has been the actors. Miller, who made cameos in Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, is set to star as the scarlet speedster in Justice League. Famuyiwa brought on Kiersey Clemons to play Iris West and Billy Crudup to play Barry’s father, and those two actors are still attached.There was also the rumor Flash was going to be facing off against the Rogues, but with Famuyiwa gone, this’ll probably change.This isn’t the first time Warner Bros. has looked like they don’t know what they’re doing in regards to the DCEU. Both Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were grim messes with terrible scripts (or at least according to the ones we saw on the screen). The studio is jumping ahead with a ton of new additions to the universe–including Harley Quinn spin-off Gotham City Sirens–before getting a handle on what their franchise will look like. Seeing the studio scramble with The Flash doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence that it’s learned from its mistakes.

Amazon Prime Video finally lands on Apple TV

Stereotactic Radiosurgery Improves Survival for Advanced NSCLC Patients with Brain Metastases

Stereotactic radiosurgery, in combination with targeted therapy using EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors, resulted in the longest survival and best outcomes for patients.The findings were presented Sept. 26 at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) meeting in Boston.This study analyzed three current options by reviewing outcomes of 351 patients from six institutions with EGFR-mutant NSCLC who were treated with either stereotactic radiosurgery in conjunction with targeted therapy (100), whole brain radiotherapy in conjunction with targeted therapy (120), or targeted therapy alone followed by stereotactic radiosurgery or whole brain radiotherapy if salvage was required (131).The multi-institutional analysis demonstrated that the use of targeted therapy alone with deferral of radiotherapy resulted in inferior overall survival. Stereotactic radiosurgery in conjunction with targeted therapy resulted in the longest overall survival for patients.“Patients with advanced NSCLC that has newly spread to their brain have many treatment options today,” said Veronica Chiang, M.D., senior author on the study and an associate professor of neurosurgery and of therapeutic radiology at Yale School of Medicine. “Physicians need to feel confident that we know the best option and this study helps us to identify that.

GLENDALE Ariz — Last season the Arizona Cardina

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — Last season, the Arizona Cardinals surrendered an NFL-high 58 quarterback sacks.Now, some of those could be attributed to the quarterback not getting rid of the ball soon enough or a running back or tight end missing on an assignment, but ultimately the blame fell on the offensive line.Injuries and ineffectiveness forced the team to shuffle the lineup a considerable amount, but at the end of the day it often ended up being a case of replacing one struggling player with another. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact – / 37 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “Did a great job in the pass protection,” quarterback Carson Palmer added. Palmer, who completed 4-of-6 passes for 77 yards and a touchdown, had enough time to consistently try and find receivers down the field.Of course, the run game was once again an issue. Running backs Stepfan Taylor and Alfonso Smith combined for 85 yards on 32 carries, which averages out to just 2.65 yards per tote.So, lest you think the offensive line has completely turned the corner, it may be worth a step or two back.Sendlein believes there is still work to be done and the veteran Brown admitted that they are “not where (they) need to be, technically, yet,” but there is certainly an air of optimism surrounding the line.It’s a far cry from where things were last season, where the struggles up front directly led to the offense’s inability to move the ball.“Offensive line really determines how good an offense is going to be,” Brown said. “The eye is definitely always on us because if we don’t give the quarterback time, then nobody else can get their job done and in the running game we have to open up holes.“Eye is always on us; we accept the challenge and we’ll go out there and do what we have to do.” Comments   Share   center_img Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling That is not the case this season.“This is the deepest line that I’ve ever been on since being in Arizona,” center Lyle Sendlein said. “This is going to be the hardest team to make for us that have been here in the past.”The starting line in Friday’s 17-0 win in Green Bay consisted of Levi Brown at left tackle, Jonathan Cooper at left guard, Sendlein at center, Paul Fanaika at right guard and Eric Winston at right tackle. Of those five, zero started the team’s final game of the 2012 season.Sure, injuries played a role, as both Brown and Sendlein were sidelined in 2012 and Daryn Colledge, who was a starter last season, missed Friday’s game with his own ailment. However, the amount of turnover the line has undergone serves to underscore how important improvement was deemed.Should that happen, the credit would belong to new head coach Bruce Arians who, along with first-year general manager Steve Keim, was tasked with fixing things up front.The early returns appear to be positive, as the Cardinals allowed just one quarterback sack in the preseason opener against Green Bay and rarely allowed much pressure.“Overall, for the first time out,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Monday, “especially in the silent snap count situation, I thought we protected the quarterback very well.”last_img read more
