The Top 5 Adaptive Clothing Companies adaptive-clothing-companies/ With nearly 1 in 4 adults living with a disability in the U.S. (source), the need for adaptive apparel represents a large market and need. A common challenge many aging adults face is the act of getting dressed and undressed by themselves. This can be the result of a physical disability, chronic condition, and/or other restrictions that may come with age or for people with disabilities. This is where adaptive clothing can be of great help. ALTERNATIVE HEALING, IMPROVED FUNCTION Brain-Computer Interfaces Mind over body: Improving brain-computer interfaces brain-computer-interfaces.html CTP Berk dot org controlled-computer-cursor/ Excerpt: Cathy is an early participant in the clinical trials conducted by a group of researchers called BrainGate, whose mission is to provide severely motor-impaired individuals (through neurologic disease, injury, or limb loss) with the ability to communicate, interact and function through thought. The research so far looks very promising. People using the BrainGate system have a tiny computer chip implanted on the surface of their brains. This chip enables their brains to use a computer as a gateway to self-directed activities that go beyond typical computer functions and include the control of objects in the environment, such as a phone, a TV and room lights. BrainGate technology’s cursor-control accuracy is twice that of previous prosthetic systems and approaches the performance of a real arm. Better yet, the new system is still going strong after four years, while previous systems steadily decline in performance over time. Remote Viewing and Therapy IRVA - International Remote Viewing Association - Melvin Morse, MD From website: Wisdom in the Making: Therapeutic Applications of Nonlocal Viewing for Counseling. Abstract: We have developed a new approach to creating life changes, we call Wisdom in the Making. It involves a blending of validated therapeutic techniques such as EMDR, hemispheric integration, and somatic experiencing, with remote viewing. This is particularly powerful in the treatment of PTSD. During the therapy "virtual" persons can be engaged, such as, healthy adult parts of the person, fallen comrades of a soldier in war, dead family members, abusers and spirit helpers to assist in the healing process. This often catalyzes a profound healing response where clients report a sense of deeper healing, even a Spiritual experience, while new material comes forward of forgiveness, compassion and love for the "self" and "others." rse.html ALTERNATIVE VIEWS ON WARFARE Veteran Groups of Peace Veterans For Peace VVAW Peace Not War
