Free course helps parents bring out the best in their children and themselves in spite of COVID-19 constraints

Happy child

The on-line course “Children” is based on a booklet from “The Scientology Handbook”.

“The Scientology Handbook” covering common areas of life that people sometimes struggle with.

Free Volunteer Minister DVD and portfolio giving advice and help for common problems in life.

Most parents want to do everything they can to help their children but don’t know what to do in certain situations. This course gives simple tools that help.

A good, stable adult with love and tolerance in his heart is about the best therapy a child can have.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — How to raise a happy, healthy child is not something most parents are taught. In fact, many just stumble through the entire process, albeit with the best intentions. Consequently, it is all too common to find an unhappy state of affairs in families, with constant friction between parents and children.

Today, with more children staying at home due to COVID-19 restrictions, many parents would like to improve their parenting skills.

A free online course is available to anyone interested in learning the basic skills and information on raising children. Based on the works of humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard (see www.LRonHubbard.org for more information), the course, called “Children,” shows how to bring out the best in a child, and their parents. It is a valuable resource to help anyone raising children in today’s challenging environment.

Raising children should be a joy. And can be. In fact, it can be one of the most rewarding of all human experiences. The application of Scientology principles to the bringing up of children can ensure that they are happy, loving and productive, and that they become valuable members of the societies in which they live.

Mr. Hubbard summed it up this way: “A good, stable adult with love and tolerance in his heart is about the best therapy a child can have.”

This course and corresponding booklet cover:

• How to raise a child without breaking his spirit;
• How to have a child who is willing to contribute to the family;
• How to help a child quickly overcome daily upsets and tribulations of life;
• What children need most from their parents;
• Exact tools you can use in raising your children to be happy, healthy, intelligent and self-confident in life.

The course takes six to seven hours to complete online with easy step-by-step instructions and practical drills to do. It is self-paced so some will do it slightly faster and some will take more time to fully absorb this interesting information. Timing is up to the individual doing the course. It is available 24/7 so parents can do it after their children are in bed and use the lessons the next day.

The materials are integrated within the online course. In other words, once logged on, one can read the materials from within the online course program as each step is done. Help with the online courses is always available using the ‘Need help?' button in the online course program.

Upon completion of the “Children” course, one will receive a certificate by e-mail.

This course is one of 19 courses offered online as part of the Church of Scientology’s Volunteer Ministers program. Based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard, these courses address common issues people are encountering, such as solutions for a dangerous environment, communication, marriage, and assists for illnesses and injuries. Anyone of any belief, who wants to do something to improve conditions around them, may avail themselves of these free courses.

As one of their many projects, Volunteer Ministers, around the country during much of 2020 have been reaching out to help their neighbors with basic hygiene protocol education booklets offered at the “How to Stay Well Prevention Resource Center” site. In the Washington, DC, metro area over 100,000 booklets have been personally distributed.

Early Biden Voters in Pennsylvania Seek to Switch Vote to Trump

Bikers for Trump

The activist group, Bikers for Trump, is working to open a path for those wishing to switch their votes to Trump in Pennsylvania.

Biden will kill fracking, kill oil, raise taxes, and allow our great cities like Philadelphia to burn. While some gave him the benefit of the doubt before, it is obvious now where he really stands.”

— Chris Cox

HARRISBURG, PA, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the closing days of the 2020 election, those who cast votes early for former Vice President Joe Biden are seeking to switch their votes as new information is brought to light.

After record-breaking early vote turn out, the question: ‘can I change my vote’ is trending on Google. The voter remorse is especially active among early voters for Biden after voters discovered his opposition to fracking, desire to kill the oil industry, and plans to dramatically raise taxes. The activist group, Bikers for Trump, is working to open a path for those wishing to switch their votes.

While Pennsylvania law is unclear on the process, Bikers for Trump has retained local counsel and begun a massive statewide ad blitz to encourage early voters who want to switch to contact them – via their website www.TrumpMyVote.com. Voters who check in on the page will be contacted by counsel to help defend their right to vote for their preferred candidate.

“This isn’t hard,” explained Chris Cox, Founder of Bikers for Trump. “The early votes received in each county don’t get counted until Election Day and are still inside the voters’ identifying envelope. A voter that presents valid ID should be allowed to rescind their prior vote and destroy it inside the envelope, and then that voter can cast a new vote – for Donald Trump!”

“Biden will kill fracking, kill oil, raise taxes, and allow our great cities like Philadelphia to burn,” Cox continued. “While some gave him the benefit of the doubt before, it is obvious now where he really stands – and it is not with Pennsylvania.

“Pennsylvania election law is silent about the right of Early voters to rescind their earlier vote and cast a new one,” explained Dan Backer, National Counsel to Bikers for Trump. “Voters are demanding to recast their ballots, and Pennsylvania must allow this opportunity – even if it means allowing voters on Election Day and spoiling the early vote from individuals wishing to switch. We’ve retained local counsel and will vigorously pursue the right of Americans to vote for who they want.”

TEXAS AND OHIO PLEASE VOTE BLUE. VOTE OUT INSANITY & VOTE IN WISDOM. USE YOUR VOTE POWER TO MAKE AMERICA AMERICA AGAIN.

Identify with the mind and with it heal the brain.

use the Brain and Mind to Improve Each Other.

Emotional health is the panacea for a wise America.

Emotional intelligence comes from emotional health.

Brain and mind are two separate entities and so mind and brain education are different.

The quality of the self-image determines the quality of life for individuals, groups and countries.

Trump's emotionally challenged behavior is on full display at all times. His whole team consists of himself and his one and only adviser in chief his insane gut

By electing Trump we will be handing the White House once again to insanity.
By electing Biden we will place wisdom in the White House.
The choice is between wisdom and insanity.”

— Sajid Khan

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In choosing a leader the biggest factor that must be considered is wisdom. As wisdom has remained fuzzy we have ignored the wisdom level of our presidential candidates. I have a simple formula for wisdom that makes clear what is wisdom. Wisdom above all is pure love and just as love is an emotion so is wisdom. Wisdom just like love springs from emotional health. Thus wisdom is emotional health.

Emotional health itself is neglected and ignored as it is misdefined as mental health. Mental health affects 10% of the population while emotional health affects about 80% from mild to severe. While mental health issues are visible and mental illness is mostly recognized and action taken. Emotional issues are misdefined. Crime, drug addictions, abuse, and all social ills are emotionally challenged behavior but all these ills of society are classified as criminal behavior. Criminal behavior is addressed with punishment when it should be treated as an emotional health issue.

Even when an emotional illness is addressed we try to teach, coax, threaten, and punish bad behavior which is the symptom of emotional illness. So we try to address the heat and smoke while letting the fire rage on. No wonder our social problems are as bad as ever no matter how much we try to control bad behavior.

Another issue that has a deep unhealthy impact on all life is the fact that our experts lump the brain and mind as just the single entity of the mind when these are two separate through interdependent entities. professional education is in the realm of the mind while emotional well-being is in the realm of the brain. As the brain is hidden under the mind our full focus is on educating the mind, while ignoring and neglecting brain education which is emotional health education. Thus we equip the mind with cutting-edge education while miseducating the brain.

This simple ignorance about the mind and brain results in social, emotional, educational, health, happiness, economic, relationships, crime, corruption, war, bloated defense budgets, etc. mess. Just imagine the benefits of recognizing and taking action on the mind and brain being two separate entities.

Crime alone costs over a trillion dollars. Why do you think 50% of America struggles to make ends meet? We make good money with our cutting edge mind education but we spend it with our miseducated brains.

We have to use the mind and brain difference knowledge in every aspect of our lives starting with the most important event of our lives: How to decide who to vote for American presidentship. We must put under the microscope the brain and mind of Trump and Biden to decide who deserves the White House.

Trump's brain is clearly insane. His attributes of insanity are on full display. He is insanely self-confident about being the biggest expert on all issues simply on account of being the commander in chief. The fact that he has failed again and again in business shows that even his mind is not all there. The reason he is hiding his taxes is that they will reveal that he is as incompetent and as insane in business as he is in political leadership. Emotional health/wisdom is the #1 qualification for the White House and Trump does not have it. Trump does not even have a plan and he will repeat the same insane behavior in his next term. Trump has changed America from a totally respected world leader to being ridiculed & looked down upon. We need to vote Trump out of the White House to restore our respect and dignity and make America America again. It is clear that Trump is emotionally unfit to be president.

Biden's wisdom is on full display. Biden's mind and brain are both professionally well experienced and emotionally qualified to be president. Yes, Biden does have a gaffe problem and that is because his physical brain is overworked and beyond tired. He does not have dementia. He needs deep brain relaxation which the best doctors cannot provide as they try to help him with mind relaxation when it is the brain that needs rest. I have figured out deep brain relaxation and I will help him with it.

I have a US patent on how to measure emotional health (EH) and as EH is wisdom, I have a presidential rating test that goes as follows:

1) Premature self (-2). A macho self, considers itself above the law, is disrespectful, totally self-centered, prejudiced, has all the attributes of ignorance, and is insane.

2) Premature self (-1). Corrupt, opportunistic, cunning etc.

3) Immature self (+1). Obeys the law but considers himself as the best.

4) Super mature (+2). Selfless, humble, has all the attributes of wisdom/EH like compassionate, loving, etc.

(Which Level Describes Trump?)

It is even more essential to wake up to the reality and take action on the fact that Trump's insanity is the symbol in chief of an America that continues to produce these four levels of selves.

By electing Trump again we will be handing the White House once again to insanity.

By electing Biden we will place wisdom in the White House.

The Compton Cowboys' "F*** Talking. Go Vote.” Inspires Cowboys Across the Nation to Ride to the Polls

The Compton Cowboys are calling on BIPOC cowboys and cowgirls across the country to organize rides that get suppressed voters to the polls.

“F*** Talking. Go Vote.” is a campaign to mobilize BIPOC voters.

The Compton Cowboys and Chicago-based creative studio Someoddpilot collaborated to amplify the Cowboys’ message through a multi-media campaign.

Activist equestrian group launches campaign to incite disenfranchised voters for the 2020 election.

Be loud. Be forceful. Be proud. Share and influence others, too. Your vote matters, because you matter.””

— Randy Savvy, Compton Cowboys’ creative director

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Compton Cowboys, an activist group that strives to uplift its community through horseback riding and highlighting the legacy of African-Americans in equine and western heritage, are calling on BIPOC cowboys and cowgirls across the country to organize rides that get suppressed voters to the polls, using their elevated position, on the backs of horses, to lead the charge. The group has launched a nationwide campaign “F*** Talking. Go Vote.” as a call to action for riders everywhere to stage “Ride To Vote” events in their cities. Each event will rally voters on a specific day to march with the riders to an early voting location. The campaign also serves as inspiration for voters – on horseback or not – to follow their example, flip the traditional power dynamic and make their voices heard.

Having taken a prominent role in protests in Los Angeles, the Compton Cowboys wanted to continue to make a difference for this year’s election. The Compton Cowboys’ creative director Randy Savvy, who is featured prominently in the campaign and penned its story and headline, directed Chicago-based creative studio Someoddpilot to help amplify the Cowboys' message through a campaign that would resonate with suppressed voters overwhelmed by this year’s election. The campaign imagery features footage from the Compton Cowboy’s September 20th rally in Los Angeles, captured by photographers Miguel Flores-Gayle and Brandon Barnhart. The launch video, shareable posters, and website (www.fucktalkinggovote.com/join-a-ride) that coordinates group rides across the nation will serve to educate and empower voters so they mount up and get to the polls before or on November 3rd.

The result, “F*** Talking. Go Vote, “ is a stunning and powerful message that addresses how, according to Randy Savvy, “Fights have always been a long journey. It isn’t something that happens over night.” He continues, “But there’s too much talking about voting and not enough action about it. We’re going to do something about it.”

When asked why the Cowboys embody the spirit of the campaign Savvy says, “I always felt like the Cowboy represents being a force for some type of change. A trailblazer.”

He continued with a message to young voters debating whether they should vote: “Be loud. Be forceful. Be proud. Share and influence others, too. Your vote matters, because you matter.”

“The Compton Cowboys are so inspiring. They wrote, directed, and starred in this campaign to get people to the polls. And we were beyond humbled to help in any capacity we could,” said Chris Eichenseer, creative director of Someoddpilot. “The Cowboys are working hard to bring people together to have their voices heard and to fight for what’s right. Because at this point, what more is there to say?”

The Compton Cowboys have so far helped coordinate rides in Illinois, Maryland, Southern California, Northern California, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, with more coming in Texas, Virginia, Oklahoma and North Carolina.

For more information and to join a ride, reach out to the contact information listed at www.fucktalkinggovote.com. Rally with the Compton Cowboys and voters nationwide by sharing out their video and downloadable posters, using the hashtag #fucktalkinggovote .

TRUMP DEFICIT NOT REVERSIBLE AS HILLARY: NO COMEY ANNOUNCMNT 2020, SAYS BOB WEINER, EX-CLINTON SPOKESMN/DEM STRATEGIST

Robert Weiner

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Trump's poll deficit before the 2020 Presidential vote is not reversible as Hillary's lead was in 2016, because there is not a Comey-like announcement in 2020 anyone will heed," says Robert Weiner, ex-Clinton and congressional spokesman/ Democratic strategist. "Trump's slide will stick," Weiner predicts.

Weiner and policy analyst Ben Lasky wrote an article in the Des Moines Register on May 24, 2018, asserting "In these midterms, the Comey vote can't help Republicans," predicting that both in the 2018 midterms and the 2020 presidential election that Democrats would have a massive victory because the 10-point flip immediately following Comey's announcement 11 days before the 2016 election will not be able to re-occur. Weiner's theory was confirmed by Robbie Mook, Hillary's 2016 campaign manager, who told Chuck Todd on Meet the Press that polling the day before and after Comey's announcement showed a 10-point reversal in swing states.

Link to article: https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/opinion/columnists/2018/05/24/midterm-elections-2018-comey-vote-cannot-help-republicans/641512002/

Weiner said there are two other reasons "Biden's lead will stay solid and he will win in contrast to Hillary":

First Hillary ignored going to Wisconsin, Michigan, and other swing states in the last weeks, unlike Biden, as Weiner and Lasky wrote Biden needed to leave Delaware, in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on August 20, 2020:

https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/solutions/2020/08/13/dnc-milwaukee-matters-but-biden-must-actually-go-wisconsin/3355724001/

"Biden has done exactly that," Weiner stated.

Finally, Weiner said President Trump ignores to this day the reality of Covid hospitalizations and deaths. He mocks the coverage in the media saying, “Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid, Covid.” President Obama got it exactly right that Trump is “jealous of coverage in the media of the virus.” Trump has created hot spots in the White House itself and the unmasked rallies he's holding all over. Weiner concluded that, "The American people feel and know the reality of the virus versus Trump's denial. The surging 17 point Biden lead in Wisconsin is reflective of that state's huge Covid spike."

Comedian Zain Shami Attached to Co-Star in Indie Motion Picture Pomegranate

Comedian Zain Shami Attached to Co-Star in Indie Motion Picture Pomegranate

Weam Productions and Buffalo 8

ZAIN SHAMI is a Los Angeles based actress and stand-up comedian. She's one of the first internationally known Hijabi Muslim females who performs standup comedy

We looked high and low, and suddenly there she was, the essence of what I had impossibly imagined—an Iraqi hijabi comic who loves to wear muumuus. We are fortunate to have Zain join our talented team.”

— Weam Namou

STERLING HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pomegranate Pictures is thrilled to announce the attachment of Comedian Zain Shami to co-star in the 2021 production of Pomegranate. Writer-director, Weam Namou, said, “We looked high and low, and suddenly there she was, the essence of what I had impossibly imagined—an Iraqi hijabi comic who loves to wear muumuus. We are fortunate to have Zain join our talented team.”

ZAIN SHAMI is a Los Angeles based actress and stand-up comedian. She is one of the first internationally known Hijabi Muslim females who performs standup comedy within the United States. Born in Kuwait, to Iraqi parents, Zain left the Middle East at the young age of two, whereupon her parents immigrated to California. Raised in Los Angeles with a very unique perspective on religion and culture, she is able to grapple her unique and unrivaled upbringing with a lot of laughter and love! She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Literature and English Education from Cal State Long Beach. She worked at Disney Entertainment, and was a newspaper journalist for a while. As an actress she’s been on numerous television shows and films helping to bridge the gap between Muslims and non-Muslims alike by normalizing the everyday life of a Hijabi Muslim American female. Active on social media as @ZainComedy, she has over fifty-thousand followers on Instagram, and almost half-million on TikTok.

For Pomegranate, Zain takes on the role of Hassina Al Mousawi Niran’s loving but strict Muslim mother. A strong woman, Hassina thinks muumuus are the latest American fashion always wearing a matching hijab. Under her muumuus, Hassina wears the family pants. Easily irritable, she’s obsessed with food and keeps their dual-sided refrigerator and freezer stocked to overflowing. Her biggest problem is getting her food stamp card renewed so her family won’t starve. She’s also obsessed with marrying Niran off and keeps Polaroid snaps of possible suitors in her bra.

Pomegranate is a dramedy by writer-director Weam Namou, based on her childhood experiences immigrating from Iraq to the United States, and then as an adult living through the presidential election of 2016. Consequently, Pomegranate is the story about how, in the weeks before the election of Donald Trump in 2016, a young, politically liberal, Iraqi Muslim immigrant struggles to find her footing in a neighborhood of well-to-do, politically conservative, Iraqi Christians, while battling her family’s fears of deprivation and demands of loyalty to Muslim traditions.

Pomegranate Pictures, LLC is owned and managed by Weam Namou, who wrote the screenplay and will direct the movie. She is working in association with Buffalo 8 Productions (Santa Monica, CA) to produce the movie.

Bald Beagle

Bald Beagle is the creation of ACLJ's creative team, made up of dynamic writers, performers, and creators whose credits include Disney and Nickelodeon.

With less than a week to go before the Presidential election, we thought it was important to break down to kids, and some of us adults, what the Electoral College is and how it works.”

— Logan Sekulow, ACLJ’s Director of Media

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Are your kids curious about voting? Bald Beagle, an exciting new educational entertainment channel for kids, provides some answers in their latest episode, “What Is the Electoral College?” Bald Beagle is the creation of The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) creative team, made up of dynamic writers, performers, and creators whose credits include entertainment giants like Disney and Nickelodeon.

"What Is the Electoral College?” Episode Summary: Your parents are going to vote next week for the President of the United States. Maybe they have already early voted! But how does voting work? As the superhero U.S. Amy says, 'Some states are big, some states are small. The Electoral College makes it fair for them all!’”

"With less than a week to go before the Presidential election, we thought it was important to break down to kids, and some of us adults, what the Electoral College is and how it works,” says Logan Sekulow, ACLJ’s Director of Media. "It likely will be a major talking point around the dinner table, and we are here with a 7-minute puppet-led explanation. This episode of Bald Beagle also premieres our patriotic superhero, U.S. Amy, who shares with us an easy-to-remember jingle about the Electoral College.”

Featuring puppets, cutting-edge animation, music and more to connect with young audiences, Bald Beagle offers short-form videos designed to make kids smile, sing, and laugh while also teaching them about our country’s important and often inspiring history. Bald Beagle also presents lessons of faith and the moral principles that our nation was founded on – principles so many of us still share today.

From the Founding Fathers, to how government actually works, to what they, even as kids, can do to protect and preserve our constitutional republic. Moms, dads, and grandparents can rest assured that their kids are being taught fundamental truths – not being exposed to some extreme, subversive agenda – through high-quality content that can compete with the best children’s entertainment that television, streaming services, or the internet have to offer.

Virginia Assembly Extends Civil Immunity to Assisted Living Facilities during the Covid-19 Pandemic

MCLEAN, VA, UNITED STATES, October 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Virginia Assembly Extends Civil Immunity to Assisted Living Facilities during the Covid -9 Pandemic

By Jeffrey J. Downey, Esq.

In September of 2020, the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation that extends Covid-19 civil immunity to assisted living facilities, hospice providers and adult day-care centers Virginia law already extends liability protections to certain medical providers during disasters and emergencies, except in cases of “gross negligence or willful misconduct.” In late April, Gov. Ralph Northam issued an executive order clarifying that the COVID-19 pandemic counted as a disaster under state law and outlining that shortages of protective equipment, drugs, trained medical staff and other resources could reasonably limit the ability to provide care.
Va Code 8.01-225.02

As of the passage of this bill, there were a total of 9,488 Covid-19 deaths linked to long term care facilities and some 1,376 deaths – more than half of the state’s total deaths from the virus. Opponents of the bill, including Del. Dawn Adams, pointed out that most nursing facilities have been on lockdown since the beginning of the pandemic and there was no need to “strip further rights from family and residents.”
While Republicans have sought to pass such legislation to prevent the “flood of lawsuits” anticipated from the virus, the reality is that there will be no flood of litigation, explains Jeffrey J. Downey. Downey, an attorney who focuses his practice on long term care malpractice, explains that few attorneys are even taking on such cases that can present a myriad of causation and other barriers to prosecution. We heard these same arguments by the Trump administration when the Senate held up another stimulus package because the democrats would not limit the rights of numerous seniors who died in long term care facilities, explains Downey. For more information on how the administration mishandled the Covid-19 pandemic as relates to nursing homes, click here. Now the Virginia legislature is doing what the Trump administration failed to do. Given the lax regulatory enforcement in nursing homes and reduced fines, nursing homes are less accountable both civilly and administratively. Now assisted living facilities will be given the same type of immunity that nursing homes have against Covid-19 lawsuits, even where the facility engages in negligent conduct that spreads Covid-19 to its residents.

The CDC published some strategies for reducing the spread of COVID-19 in nursing homes. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/healthcare-facilities/prevent-spread-in-long-term-care-facilities.html But without additional funding and resources, an overburdened long-term care system is not going to be able to address the severe challenges that will be presented by the Corona Virus.
