Anne Marie Schubert is a long-time prosecutor for Sacramento. She's seen all the dirt that the bottoms of society has to offer. She's put many of them away for good.

Schubert, 53, took her son to see the family doctor in 2016. Her day was hectic as we'd expect the day of a District Attorney's to be. Her son, who she refuses to name out of privacy concerns, was having back pains. But when they arrived at the appointment, the doctor allegedly switched the focal point over to vaccines. The doctor noted that Schubert's son was overdue for the HPV vaccine.

In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was killed on the 17th day of Athyr, the third month of the ancient calendar. (Note that this is October 3rd in our modern calendar)

3/17 is also the date of a Masonically-created holiday, St. Patrick's Day. The story has it that the holiday was established by high level Freemason, George Washington, allegedly to reward Irish soldiers in the Continental Army. But "St. Paddy's" has traditionally been a very minor Saint's day in Ireland. Considering that the day has become America's defacto Bacchanal (which takes us back to Osiris) it's worth noting some of the parallels of this day with Solar mythology.

Dyslexia is a learning disorder related to reading and spellings.Flax seeds, another time tested remedy for treating dyslexia, should be roasted, powdered and stored.

It is not triggered by an intellectual disability but is in fact caused by poor co-ordination between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. It has nothing to do with impaired vision, loss of hearing or inadequate or below standard instruction. A delay in learning to speak and ascertaining a dominant hand, trouble with rhyming words and a difficulty in grasping new words are signs of dyslexia.

After recently withdrawing her son from public school because of safety and education concerns, a New York City mom went through all the required procedures to homeschool her son, but soon found Child Protective Services (CPS) coming after her.

Before CPS showed up at her door and prior to seeking legal advice, the concerned mother received counsel and support from her pastor and his wife - both of whom had homeschooled their own children for years.

We've put together 50 of our favorite backyard composting tips to help you make amazing homegrown compost. Enjoy!

The microbes responsible for breaking down your compost pile need a balanced diet of nitrogen and carbon. Nitrogen comes from green materials such as food scraps, manure and grass clippings. Carbon comes from brown materials such as dead leaves, hay, wood chips and shredded newspaper. A ratio that contains equal portions by weight (not volume) of both works best.

With regard to self-granted federal regulations, the federally controlled medical management agencies in this country, have granted themselves the right to declare someone a medical threat for an absolutely harmless illness.

"Today, the American people are challenged, as they have never been before, to confront the expansion of government authority over our bodies and the bodies of our children, specifically the exercise of police power to take us into custody and isolate us without our consent whenever public health officials believe we are sick or could become sick."

A measure seeking to untie home-schooling from the regulatory eye of the Virgin Islands Board of Education won the favor of all senators gathered at the Frits E. Lawaetz Legislative Hall here on Monday.

Though the measure will be amended, senators generally agreed with the measure, with the bill's sponsor, Senator Novelle Francis - who said the bill was specifically for parents and guardians who home-school their children, and not the many learning centers throughout the territory that essentially operate as unlicensed private schools - pointing to the growing interest in home-schooling from parents throughout the territory.
