Increasingly, clairvoyants, tarot-card readers, and intutives have been a option to consulting with psychotherapists. Here is an article on that from New York Magazie.
The edge psychics have is that, in addition to helping you become self-aware, they often predict the future. But, like therapists, they're contacted when you are in some kind of emotional pain. So, you are all ears about getting answers. Pronto.
Often, you ask the pyschic: Will the other party settle? Is partnership in the cards? Is my spouse planning to leave me?
However, it may happen that you don't at all like the answer you receive.
So, you wonder if that scenario is cast in stone. You are not alone in that. That's a common concern.
Journalist Scott Podmore's belief system does not include or exclude the existence of the occult. Curious as most reporters are, he went in search of finding out more about force fields science hasn't explained as yet. That included interviewing brandname psychics such as John Edwards, James Van Paragh, and Elizabeth Baron. The resulting book is "Conversations With Mediums," published in 2014. Here you can order it from Amazon.
What Podmore discovered is that, yes, the predicted destiny can be changed. Some clairvoyants such as Baron encourage their clients to do just that. For Baron the best tool to short-circuit the future which is programmed to unfold is prayer.
Frequently you hear the story of people warned about, for example, an accident. They trust their gut - and psychic. They cancel one airplane flight and book another. The former crashes.
On the other hand, it happens that what is foretold seems a better fit than what we myopic humans had planned and executed. In the mid 1990s, I shuttered my communications boutique and took a full time job with an insurance company in Hartford, Connecticut. When I asked a psychic how that was going to pan out she said no-go. I would re-establish my own business. While I was working there a New York public affairs firm kept loading me up with contract assignments. The work was stimulating and lucrative. And, that was that.
Takeaway: Insight into what could happen can be the platform for building what we want to occur.
Read the job description here and you see that the position really requires a communications generalist with special expertise in scriptwriting. That means you have to understand the media game, including how members of the ABA should position and package themselves in interviews.
So, those may be pleased with the results of the lawsuit "SEC v. Shavers." Here is Bloomberg's coverage of the ruling by U.S. Magistrate Judge Amos L. Mazzant of a $40.6 million fine for Bitcoin Ponzi con by Trendon Shavers.
Essentially, the Judge decided that Shavers had established a Ponzi arrangement for his investment company Bitcoin Savings and Trust. Therefore, what he was up to constituted securities fraud. That means that Bitcoin is being recognized as a vehicle for investment and, as such, can be regulated by the SEC. Shavers disagreed.
With the SEC overseeing Bitcoin, the volatility of its value shifts could be tamed. That could make some kinds of traders more comfortable with the virtual currency.
Another sign of coming regulation has been Richard Cordrey's notice to consumers. He wants them to report the the Consumers Financial Protection Bureau any complaints about Bitcoin transactions. Here is coverage of that development.
Tech Crunch reports that the price of Bitcoin is now down to under $400. It speculates that if it continues to decline, mainstream will lose interest. Here you can keep up with that.
Forever lovers, boarding school chums on holiday, and reuniting old friends have been making that arrangement. Now we know, from Frank Tamayo's guilty plea, insider traders have also selected that landmark.
As David Voreacos reports in Bloomberg, in federal court in Trenton, Tamayo admitted guilt in"taking part in a five-year scheme that made $5.6 million in profit." He also described how he chewed and swallowed the tips to ensure not getting caught with evidence. A former mortgage broker at Morgan Stanley, he said the con lasted from 2009 until 2013. He faces 20 years. Here is that Bloomberg coverage.
For a while now the "eating the evidence" has been the comic story bouncing around the media. But, for BigLaw the point of focus is that one of those allegedly in that insider trading is Steven Metro. Before being fired last March, he had been a clerk at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP. He shared informaton about possible mergers and acquisitions and tender offers. He is charged with nine counts of securities fraud.
The third alleged miscreant is Vladimir Eydelman. He had worked at Oppenheimer before he was arrested.
Of course, this would make a good movie. Not quite "The Wolf of Wall Street," but still a lot of fun. The audiences can watch the Clock, the vacillating arrogance and nervousness of the players, and how a major law firm gets duped.
Gigi Jordan has everything going for her as the Defendant to Hate.
She had been Boss Lady at a pharmaceutical firm. Her manner is off-putting. She fired more than 10 legal teams. She accused the prosecutors of all sorts of things. While the lethal drugs she administered to her autistic son Jude Mirra were taking effect, she was sending business emails. Here is the latest media coverage, this time by the New York Post.
At the top of the list among parents' concerns is who will take good care of the child when they are no longer around for protection and advocacy.
Next is the soul-wrenching reality that their child is fodder for ridicule, bullying, sexual abuse, and more.
And, third, all those positive spins about focusing on abilities, not disabilities, are often just that. The child rarely seems to develop those compensating traits. As the years pass the promise of living independently fades.
Will the jurors be able to see beyond Jordan's seeming narcissism and arrogance? If they do, they also have to beware that letting her off the hook sends a message that mercy killing of disabled children may be okay.
With so much corruption throughout government, at all levels, Philip K. Howard will have it tough selling his latest message. That's to return democracy to human control. And to snatch it out of the rigid cold hands of rule-based government.
Howard platforms his campaign in his 2014 book "The Rule of Nobody: Saving America From Dead Laws and Broken Government." Here you can order it from Amazon.com.
Howard, as many remember, made his name at the time when the class action was the preferred way of strong-arming big money from big corporations. Lawsuits or the threat of them focused on tobacco, asbestos, and lead paint. Howard orchestrated his push-back against unnecessary and fraudulent litigation from his best-seller "The Death of Common Sense." The back of the big class action has been broken. "Dukes v. Wal-Mart" didn't have a chance.
Now, rigid rules can make us feel safer than anticipating having to have to deal with human beings who are likely to be tainted, beyond the usual shadow side belonging to the human race. I think about that all the time.
Believe me, there were plenty of rules, rigid ones, associated with applying for and maintaining Medicare and Social Security. Yet, those were nothing compared to my dread of having to negotiate with a free-agent human being who had lots of license to interpret the rules.
If Howard can see to it that we elect, appoint, and hire a better breed of human being to make practical decisions about what should and should not be done, then I might agree to unend government-by-rigid- rule.

From the get-go, lawyers, at least the ambitious, knew they needed the grades in high school to get into a good undergraduate. Eventually, it became having motions granted by certain judges. All of these "in chage" they had to size up, then try to please. Along the way, they probably have endured tryanny, sadism, neediness or maybe even threats.
Continually they might have questioned if that behavior results from how power corrupts or lousy neurobiology, with a heaping side dish of trauma. One day, they find out in the media that professor, partner or judge is the subject of a manhunt in some exotic territory outside the U.S.
That amps up the craving for data and insight about bad behavior. Also there is the issue if the miscreants see themselves as good guys, heroes even.
This year expert in neurobiology Dean A. Haycock published what could turn out to be a seminal book. It is "Murderous Minds - Exploring the Criminal Psychopathic Brain - Neurological Imaging and the Manifestation of Evil." Here you can order it from Amazon.com.
In a conversational but cautious manner, Haycock, for example, presents school shooter Eric Harris as a psychopath, his accomplice Dylan Klebold as a mere depressive, and town-meeting murderer Jared Lee Loughner as a psychotic. Useful for criminal lawyers and corrections officials, he explains the possible limits of test for psychopathy.
Also, he lets off crusaders like Norman Mailer who worked to release from lock-up Jack Abbott as just naive. Not even arrogant. That's probably because the nature of psychopathy is the compulsion to leverage whatever is necessary to get what's wanted. The tools range from charm to threats. Most or perhaps all psychopaths cannot change. If Haybock's book is taken seriously, its implications bode badly for so many seeking parole.
The primary takeaway from "Murderous Minds" is to steer clear, as soon as and as much as possible, from those in charge with the myriad psychiatric classifications: psychopath, psychotic, narcissist, borderline personality, and depressive. They win. That's their game. They have to dominate the situation.
