Sad meal, but even sadness eats; sadness consumes; everything consumes something, a system of continuance that elicits both tears and smiles, often regarding parts of a same incident. Can’t have situations I. Which every participant wins….
COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — Police have identified the gunman in the Maryland mall shooting as a 19 year old from suburban Washington.
Howard County Police Chief William McMahon said Darion Marcus Aguilar of College Park, Md., arrived at the mall shortly after 10 a.m. on Saturday armed with a Mossburg 12-gauge shotgun and used it to kill two people at a store on the upper level of the Mall of Columbia before killing himself.
McMahon said police are trying to determine whether Aguilar knew either of the victims.
Police identified the victims as 21-year-old Brianna Benlolo of College Park, Md., and 25-year-old Tyler Johnson of Ellicott City, Md. Both worked at a skateboard shop called Zumiez.
It took hours to identify the shooter since he was carrying ammunition and a backpack and police thought he may have had explosives, McMahon said. When the body was searched, police found crude homemade…

Left-over! Difficult “snack” but filling! Brain-dead; rights to die with forms of dignity….
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A brain-dead, pregnant Texas woman’s body was removed from life support Sunday, as the hospital keeping her on machines against her family’s wishes acceded to a judge’s ruling that it was misapplying state law.
Marlise Munoz‘s body soon will be buried by her husband and parents, after John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth announced it would not fight Judge R.H. Wallace Jr.’s Friday order to pronounce her dead and return her body to her family. The 23-week-old fetus she was carrying will not be born.
The hospital’s decision Sunday brings an apparent end to a case that became a touchstone for national debates about the beginning and end of life, and whether a pregnant woman who is considered legally and medically dead should be kept on life support for the sake of a fetus.
Munoz’s husband, Erick Munoz, sued the hospital because…

Eat anytime, can’t over eat this! Okay to be a glutton when food like this is being served!
We are stardust.
Billion year old carbon
We are golden.
Caught in the devil’s bargain
And we’ve got to get ourselves back to the garden.
– Joni Mitchell
For a species that was mucking about in the slime just last week (in geologic time), our civilization has advanced at a pretty good clip. In the space of only ten thousand generations, our illustrious family went from taming fire to screwing in lightbulbs to igniting the ion thrusters of interplanetary probes. We are golden. But we pay a price, small or large, for every step out of the darkness.
Take those lightbulbs, for example. Humans are too puny to be seen from space. Even Chris Christie. You can’t even see the giant bridges he sabotages, or what he ate for lunch. So you’d never know there are 7+ billion of us scampering around on this orb. Until nightfall. Because what…

A form of recipe! –more banter, please!
Food we all need!! –affects all that exists! –“humans’ are only parts of existence, that we joined in progress! –we didn’t start it,and even our demise wouldn’t end it! –meals for anytime, any day! –main course.
“A human being is part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experience himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion, of his consciousness. The delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires, and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures, and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
~ Albert Einstein

Many people feel that spirituality and science contradict each other, but nothing could be further from the truth; one of the greatest scientific minds of the Western world also happened to be a very spiritually enlightened man.
Today’s sciences of quantum physics and epigenetics continue to give us qualitative…
