    Hi, I just published my first novel, a psychological thriller called "The Continuum", on Amazon!

    Link: http://www.amazon.com/The-Continuum-...ds=levi+grandt

    This book is full of ideas about liberty and the struggle for a young man's freedom. If you enjoy thriller novels with built-in segments on philosophy and psychology, then this is the book for you. You'll be pondering your own existence in no time!

    Descrption:
    Maurice Harper can't help feeling like there's something or someone directing his life, and it's not him. Dissatisfied and restless, he attempts to break free from his environment after a series of mysterious and harrowing events befall him, only to find that all is not as it seems. In search of meaning, Maury runs down an old dirt road without realizing that this will forever change who he is and reveal the force that directs his destiny. Can he handle the truth and make sense of what happened as he explores his strange new existence?
    Be sure to check it out and if you like it, tell your friends and don't forget to review it! Thanks!

    I wrote this post as a response to the question, "Why should we act morally?" in my philosophy course. It is responding to Chapter 12 of Peter Singer's book Practical Ethics, but you do not need to read it in order to understand the post. If anyone wants to check it out, I would recommend reading it. I don't agree with much of what Peter Singer says, but he does address the core of the issue, and he's also just a good writer. I found it enjoyable.

    With that, I would like to open the above question up for discussion. I believe what is morally right cannot be determined from a secular point of view, and that any attempts to do so are hopelessly obscured by the circular reliance on one's own consciousness to answer questions about their consciousness. Why, then, ...

    A rash of playground injuries has prompted one Long Island, N.Y. school to ban balls and require teacher supervision for games like tag.

    "Some of these injuries can unintentionally become very serious so we want to make sure our children have fun, but are also protected," Dr. Kathleen Maloney, superintendent of Port Washington Schools, told CBS New York.

    The ban at Weber Middle School in Port Washington, N.Y. will apply to footballs, baseballs, soccer balls, lacrosse boalls or any other equipment that might harm a child or school friends. Students will be allowed to play with softer Nerf balls.

    Rough games of tag or cartwheels will require supervision from a coach, according to the report.

    Children without protective gear may experience injuries ranging from bumps and scrapes to head injuries and concussions.
    Apparently, this is all based on a study from a group called "Safe Kids Worldwide" that found 1.35 million ER visits per year are from sports. Obviously, the solution is to ban sports.
