Nicole, a single mother with two children, wrote “Slow Down” song the night before her son’s fifth grade graduation.She says on facebook, “I don’t know of a more uttered or whispered phrase from a mother of any age, about her child of any age, than ‘It’s going by too fast.’ I feel like I spend my life trying to slow time. Trying to celebrate the growth and the milestones of my children, and then secretly day dreaming about building a time machine in my garage, so I can return to rocking my babies at midnight. If you’ve ever looked at your child running across a field, or striding across a graduation stage, or walking down the middle aisle of a church clutching a bouquet, you’ll know why this song is special to me. Please watch the video, remembering the moments we wish we could slow down, and sharing them with those we love most.”

“Here’s to you
Every missing tooth
Every bedtime story
Here’s to Barbie cars, light saber wars
Sleeping in on Sunday
Had to crawl
Before you walked
Before you ran
Before I knew it
You were teaching me
The only thing love can
Hold hands through it
When it’s scary, you’ve got me

Slow down
Won’t you stay here a minute more
I know you want to walk through the door
But it’s all too fast
Let’s make it last a little while…”

~ Nichole Nordeman

Deadbeat dad who “died” to get out of paying child support pays $10k, sentenced to jail/ Fox6Now

MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The deadbeat dad who “died” to get out of paying child support, has finally paid up – but will still spend the next 60 days in the Milwaukee County House of Correction.

John McCroy, who goes by the rap name “Jakitdown,” was sentenced to 60 days in jail and three years of probation, after pleading guilty to two charges of felony failure to pay child support. McCroy, who lives at home with his parents and doesn’t have a job, managed to pay more than $10,000 in outstanding child support, interest and fees in March. According to his lawyer, McCroy’s grandfather gave him the funds.

McCroy garnered Internet fame after he told FOX6 reporter Meghan Dwyer that he couldn’t pay his child support because he died in a car accident. His interview went viral, as Milwaukee County prosecutors started gathering evidence for their case against him by searching through social media records on Facebook and Instagram.

He had only paid $100 in child support since 2009 when his daughter was born. He was in a car accident in 2010. He subsequently tried to claim he was disabled, which was why he couldn’t pay child support. He told the Milwaukee County family court he was unable to work because of his disability.

However, authorities determined he was not disabled back in 2011. In 2013, while serving time in the House of Correction for an unrelated crime, he was allowed work release. Records show he worked as his uncle’s automotive shop 10 hours a day, five days a week including, overtime. However, he failed to pay child support during that time period.

His mother, a corrections officer for Milwaukee County, wrote this letter to the judge, arguing her son was disabled, even though as recently as 2013, county records show he was employed full-time.

Prosecutors say they found videos of him partying a night clubs in Milwaukee just months after his accident occurred. They also saw evidence, in photos and videos, of him working out at a gym and running on a treadmill. This is more evidence, they argue, that he was fully able to work and pay child support.

“We found photos dating back to February 2010, which was less than three months after his accident, which showed the defendant partying in night clubs,” prosecutors told the judge last week.

When asked about all of the money McCroy is seen flashing on his Facebook and Instagram pages, his lawyer argued it was “prop” money, used by local rap artists in their music videos. His lawyer told the court McCroy is not a rapper, is not signed with a label, and makes no money from his so-called musical career.

In the summer of 2014, McCroy told FOX6 he made his money selling mixtapes.

The mother of his daughter, Canience Haynes, says she’s relieved the case is over and she’s happy the judge sentenced him to jail. But she’s not optimistic he’ll keep up with the payments.

“His first and last payment was in 2010 and he only made these payments because of what was going on. He won’t make nothing else,” Haynes says.

Once he’s released from jail, he will need to pay $100 a month in child support as a condition of his probation. If he doesn’t do that, he will be sent back to the House of Correction.

Childhood trauma linked to early psychosis later in life/ UQ NEWS

Research showing that patients with early psychosis report high rates of childhood trauma has important implications for clinicians, a University of Queensland psychologist has found.

UQ Centre for Clinical Research and Queensland Centre for Mental Health Research psychologist Mr Michael Duhig said more than three-quarters of early psychosis patients reported exposure to childhood trauma, including one or a combination of emotional, physical or sexual abuse or physical neglect.

“Those people with early psychosis who experienced trauma during childhood faced higher levels of depression, anxiety and stress,” Mr Duhig said.

“Women who were subjected to emotional and sexual abuse during childhood were also found to have an increased risk of developing psychosis in adulthood.

“Interestingly, exposure to childhood trauma was found to have no impact on an individual’s day-to-day functioning at work or socially.

“This may be due to appropriate support being provided to individuals from outpatient services.”

Mr Duhig said he and his team gathered data from 106 outpatients who attended four early-psychosis services in South-East Queensland.

“These findings highlight the need for practitioners to inquire into any exposure to childhood trauma during clinical assessments of patients with early psychosis,” he said.

“Treating psychological distress needs to be a priority for clinicians, rather than managing only psychotic symptoms.

“Mental health clinicians need to consider the life experiences of people who have psychosis so as to ensure the treatment provided is holistic and provides the best chance of full recovery.

“This may require trauma-informed care in those people with psychosis who have been abused during childhood.”

Mr Duhig’s findings are published in the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry.

Missing boys reunite with heartbroken mother/ Nancy Grace

with one comment

http://www.hlntv.com/article/2015/03/20/dohm-boys-found-safe-florida-father-wanted-sex-offender

The fugitive father of two missing New Jersey brothers has been located and apprehended
Missing since February 5, Parker and Jaxon Dohm were found safe at a motel in New Port Richey, Florida, with their father
At the time of his arrest, Kristopher Dohm was in the company of Edward William Tarras, who was on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s ‘Top Ten Most Wanted’ list
On Wednesday night, New Jersey father Kristopher Dohm, 36, was located and arrested at a motel in New Port Richey, Florida, on charges related to the alleged abduction of his two sons, Parker, 8, and Jaxon, 7, in February.

The last time Sandra Hughes Dohm spoke to her children was Thursday, February 6. She told HLN’s Nancy Grace, “My ex-husband Kristopher was taking them on a trip to Nevada to see their grandparents and he was supposed to fly back with them on Monday and he never showed up with them.” The Dohms had an amicable divorce in 2012 and have shared custody of Parker and Jaxon.

Sandra said, “I was very surprised, not expecting this from him at all. Apparently, my perception of our good relationship was different than his.” The heartbroken mother took to social media to plead for any help in finding her children and ex-husband, a plea which was finally answered.

Kristopher Dohm was arrested on March 18 for interference with custody and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. The boys were held with child protection investigators until their mother arrived, according to the Sussex County, New Jersey, Prosecutor’s Office.

At the time of his arrest, Kristopher Dohm was in the company of Edward William Tarras, 39, a fugitive who had been on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s “Top Ten Most Wanted” list since last August; Tarras has been charged with multiple sex crimes in that state.

According to a press release from Sussex County Prosecutor Francis Koch, Tarras was charged by the Smyrna, Tennessee, Police Department with one count of rape, two counts of sexual battery, 19 counts of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor over 100 times. It is alleged that on August 15, 2014, Tarras cut off his tracking bracelet and fled Tennessee.

Both Dohm and Tarras are currently in custody at the Pasco County Jail; Parker and Jaxon were apparently unharmed and have been reunited with their mother. It is unclear whether Dohm or Tarras has obtained an attorney, and calls to the Pasco County Public Defender’s Office have not been returned.

The 40-day investigation ending with the safe return of Jaxon and Parker Dohm included the help of the Sussex County Prosecutor’s Office, the Hopatcong Police Department, the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit and Child Abduction Response Team, and several offices of the United States Marshals Service.

In the press release, Prosecutor Francis Koch said they were also assisted by the local, state and national media by assuring that information about Parker and Jaxon was disseminated to the public to assist in gaining tips and leads. Koch asked HLN to “please tell Ms. Grace thank you for taking on the cause and the importance of it, for staying on it and getting the word out. Thank you.”

There Could Soon Be a Pill to Make Us More Compassionate / Time

with one comment

http://time.com/3753383/compassion-brain-chemistry/

How brain chemistry influences compassion

Biology may have a lot to do with our behavior, especially in social situations. And that means our social interactions could be manipulated by a pill.

That’s what a new study, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests. A group led by researchers at University of California Berkeley and University of California San Francisco shows that by manipulating a brain chemical, people can become more compassionate and act in prosocial ways to equalize differences.

In the study, 35 men and women visited the labs two times; each time they were randomly given a pill that keeps levels of dopamine, which is involved in reward and satisfaction, or a placebo. Neither the participants nor the scientists knew which pills were given when. The volunteers were then asked to divide money between themselves and a strangers.

When the researchers analyzed the results, they found that when the people were given the dopamine drug, they were more likely to share the money equitably compared to when they took the placebo.

The results certainly aren’t the answer to promoting more compassion in society, but they do hint that behaviors like social interaction might be affected by changing basic biological systems in the brain. “We have taken an important step toward learning how our aversion to inequity is influenced by our brain chemistry,” Ignacio Sáez, one of the study’s authors and a postdoctoral researcher at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, said in a statement. “Studies in the past decade have shed light on the neural circuits that govern how we behave in social situations. What we show here is one brain ‘switch’ we can affect.”
