Rapist Types and Methods of Avoidance

Power reassurance rapists

These are the most common types of rapists on college campuses. When rapes happen on dates, or at frat parties, they are most likely to be committed by this type of rapists. They are not wanting to harm their victim, while they may plan it ahead of time, more likely it is a crime of opportunity. Add to this the lack of good judgment and loss of inhibition that results from drinking lots of alcohol, and there you have the one of the scenarios for on campus rape.

 That is only one scenario, though. Other times the attack might be preplanned by the offender. Here is a break-down of the behavior aspects of the power reassurance rapist:

This is a very difficult topic, for many reasons. Some of the things that make it difficult is while it is clear that there is a problem, there does not seem to be consensus on the best ways to solve it. How much of the responsibility falls of the women to protect themselves? How much falls on the campuses to protect them? Adding to the difficulty is the cultural tendency, in both law enforcement and administration, to blame the victim, more than the perpetrator. I understand the reasoning, to a point--they don't want to falsely imprison a person who is innocent, and may be the victim of a vindictive lie--but at the same time, that is a weak straw man argument. Understand another viewpoint, and agreeing with it are mutually exclusive.

I wanted to share an update to my recent post about answered prayers. Here is a link to the original post:
http://blognobbers.com/blogs/health-fitness/fit-and-healthy-you/entry/answered-prayers.html

I'm glad to be able to share with you all that my fiancé's brakes are fixed, and it cost much less than we thought it would. A friend of a friend came over to our house and got the work done in just two days. The Lord is so faithful to answer prayer.

****New Update*********!!!!!!


 

 We started having trouble with the brakes again not long after they were "fixed" because our friend put them on too tight. But now they have been fixed properly, and the truck runs great. Still praying for my mustang!!!

Thank you for reading my very first product review!! Today I am reviewing Avon Rare Amethyst perfume 1.7 fl. oz. First, here is how the Avon website describes Rare Amethyst:

"Reveal the gem inside. Glistening. Gorgeous. Glamorous. Reveal the beauty in every luminous facet. This sensual jewel of passionate plum shimmers with mysterious violet and rich sandalwood. 1.7 fl. oz."

NOTES
• Top Note: Wet Plum
• Middle Note: Blooming Violet
• Bottom note: Addictive Sandalwood

MOOD 
• Glamorous

 

So is it glamorous? As with all my product testing, I don't just take other people's word for things. So I bought some Rare Amethyst to try it for myself. I have to say, it smelled better than I thought it would!

And I wanted to write a follow-up post. It took me a while to learn to take my own advice in the previous article.

I know, that title is not really a title, it's more like a description. I was reading Twitter this morning and I saw the Columbus Day hashtag. There were several tweets about how we shouldn't celebrate a day that resulted in the rape, murder, and abuse of so many Native Americans---agreed---10000% agreed.

Warm-up

A warm is important to warm up your muscles and get them ready for the workout. Warm-up for 5-7 minutes.

Get sweaty

If you are sweating, you are burning calories, and that is the key to burning fat. Your body will burn sugar calories first, and fat calories last. Your cardio workout should last 30 minutes, it typically takes that length of time to get into fat-burning mode.

Cool down

It is not good for your heart just to abruptly end your workout; you need a cooling down period of 5-7 minutes of gradually decreasing the intensity of your workout.

Stretching

This is important to keep muscles and tendons limber. It is a good idea to stretch after ever workout, when your muscles are warm.

Here are some good workout videos, a few of these I have shared in previous posts, but repetition can be a good thing.

#BizWomenWednesday

I met Lukeither in 2012, about 6 months before I graduated from college. I went to Finger Lakes Community college in upstate New York, I received and degree in Administrative Assistance. While I was searching for work as an Administrative Assistant, I found some freelance work as a virtual assistant through a site called Elance.com. I connected with some other virtual assistants through social media, Diana Ennen, Lee Drozak, and Luz Donahue. They inspired me to start my own virtual assistant business. I researched some business corporation forms, and decided an LLC was best for the business. In October 2012, The Virtual Virtuoso LLC was born; a legal business entity, able to operate in New York. I incorporated because I eventually wanted to branch out into website design and product design.

  1. I'm not deplorable. I am aware of Donald Trump's faults and scandals. Do you know why I am aware of them? Because he hasn't tried to hide them.
  2. He is the lesser of two evils, so to speak, because I don't really think he is evil.
  3. He recognizes the problems in this nation, and he has a plan to deal with them; his solutions may not be popular, but they are workable. Say what you will about Donald Trump, this is a man who, when he says he is going to get something done, he gets it done. A good example of this was a government building project in the city where Trump lives, the project was getting bogged down by various things, Trump told the developers, let me take this over, I will get the job done, and guess what? He got the project done.
  4. When he went to Mexico and met with their president, when he met with Putin, say what you will, these leaders respected him, he is building alliances. When the flood happened here in Baton Rouge, Trump flew here to help and encourage people. In those three events, I saw a President.

It's good to know that chocolate has health benefits (in moderation, ladies). In a previous post, I wrote about the health benefits of coffee--chocolate and coffee go well together, particularly as a PMS remedy.

This a link to a good site with all natural fatigue remedies. A word of caution though, some natural remedies still have side effects, so make sure you read up on possible side effects, WebMD is a good online resource for this.

October is Domestic Abuse Prevention Month, so I am going to post several articles about that topic, this month

Not all psychopaths are violent--in fact, most of them aren't. One of the most frightening and chilling things about a psychopath is their ability to blend in with society, and seem just like everyone else.

Image result for people taking mask off

They don't feel emotions, with the exceptions of anger and jealousy. They are excellent mimics-imitating emotional responses they don't really feel, but because it is an act, people in their lives may get the sense that something is a little off, the charade is imperfect, but it is difficult to pinpoint what is off about the psychopath. They are narcissistic, and often driven to succeed. They often tell stories about the great things they have accomplished. They have to be the center of attention, all the time. Does any of this sound like someone you know?

Image result for praise

 

I have been thinking about the prayers that the Lord has already answered in my life, and I am so thankful for all His many blessings. I wanted to share some of them with you, dear readers.

  1. Getting me out of an abusive marriage. I wrote a bit about this in an earlier post, I will share the link to it below.
  2. When I was concerned about possibly losing my job because of performance issues, not only did I keep my job, they provided additional training, and then created a new position for me where I could use my strengths. This resulted in increased revenue for the company. God turned it around, and everyone benefitted.
  3. My wonderful fiancé, who is an answer to all I have prayed for in a mate.

I believe it is so important to recall, daily the Lord's blessings, especially in the midst of trial, so that our focus is on all the good things that the Lord has done for us, and to remind us that He has been faithful in the past, will continue to be faithful, forever and always. He changes not.

Hallelujah!!

How has God answered your prayers recently?
