A man accused of planning a mass shooting at a Florida mosque has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Court records show that 69-year-old Bernandino Bolatete was convicted in Jacksonville federal court in May of possessing an unregistered firearm silencer.

Police say they began investigating last year after receiving a tip from a confidential source that Bolatete was planning a mass shooting at the Islamic Center of Northeast Florida. Authorities say an undercover officer contacted Bolatete and arranged to sell him an unregistered silencer for $100. Investigators say Bolatete repeated the plan during taped conversations.

After Bolatete's arrest in December, prosecutors say FBI agents found a significant collection of firearms and ammunition during a search of Bolatete's home and car.

Lyft is offering reduced and free rides on election dayhttps://instaviral.pw/lyft-is-offering-reduced-and-free-rides-on-election-day/ Sat, 22 Sep 2018 13:42:22 +0000 https://instaviral.pw/?p=2460

Lyft is going to offer half-priced and free rides to polling places around the country on Election Day (November 6).

The ride-hailing giant said that it’s going to give out 50 percent off promotional codes to partners that encourage voter turnout. The company has linked up with Vote.org, Nonprofit VOTE, TurboVote and others to help distribute the codes to anyone who needs them.

On the day of the election the company said it will also provide a product integration that will help voters find their polling places to make it even easier to cast their ballot.

This non-partisan effort to get people to the polls is only becoming more critical. Election officials in one county in Georgia have proposed closing 7 of 9 polling places because they’re not sufficiently accessible for handicapped voters. Having Lyft available to help those voters who would be impacted by the closures (some of whom would have to walk three hours to get to the nearest open polls) could certainly be a boon.

As the company noted in its announcement, there’s a participation problem impacting elections in the U.S. Estimates from the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement indicate that roughly 15 million people didn’t vote in the 2016 election because they didn’t have transportation to get to the polls.

The last presidential election was decided by 80,000 votes in three states, so getting out the vote and getting people to the polls clearly matters.

For those underserved communities where the 50 percent discount on rides isn’t enough, the company will provide transportation free of cost through non-partisan, nonprofit organizations like Voto Latino, local affiliates of the Urban League and the National Federation of the Blind.

Beyond just getting people to the polls, Lyft is providing ways for people to register to vote and learn about voting initiatives that are up for approval on election day. Through a partnerships with When We All Vote and National Voter Registration Day the company intends to remind passengers about voter registration deadlines; give drivers voter registration handouts and voter information at Hub locations; offer in-office voter registration for employees; and offer online voter information through the company’s partner organizations.

Voting access is a critical issue in making sure that every American’s voice is heard through the election process. According to studies from the Pew Research Center (cited by Lyft), 46 percent of nonvoters have incomes under $30,000 compared with 19 percent of likely voters. And 43 percent of people unlikely to cast ballots are Hispanic, African American or other minorities, which is double the percentage among likely voters.

Homeless people found living in caveshttps://instaviral.pw/homeless-people-found-living-in-caves/ Sat, 22 Sep 2018 09:09:01 +0000 https://instaviral.pw/?p=2456

Two homeless people have been found living in caves near a city centre for at least two weeks.

The pair set a tent up inside one of the caves and used the other for storage after somehow getting past an 8ft-high fence.

Nottingham City Council said the homeless people left after two of their officers gave them some advice.

However, a residents' association chairman is worried the pair may now be living in even worse conditions.

"It is very sad," said Greg Feltham from Sneinton Tenants and Residents Association.

"There has been such an increase in people rough sleeping in this area."

He added that sleeping in caves "is not how people should be living in the 21st Century. They should have more appropriate accommodation to meet their needs."

Nottingham has about 850 man-made caves which were previously used as dungeons, bomb shelters and homes.

These particular ones are known as the Sneinton Hermitage caves and are on the edge of Nottingham city centre.

"It is a relatively small area with two little caves side-by-side," said Mr Feltham.

"One had their tent in and they were using the other for general storage."

Mr Feltham said there used to be quite a lot of rough sleepers in the caves before the fencing was installed a few years ago.

"Somehow this couple have found a way of getting over it," he said.

"I would like to see a concentrated effort nationally in helping homeless people."

Nottingham City Council said its community protection officers (CPOs) became aware of the rough sleepers earlier this week, went to check on their welfare and told them about the support services available.

"By the time our CPOs returned on Thursday, the pair had moved on, and so they arranged for the clear-up of the site, including the removal of drugs paraphernalia."

50 Facts About Love That Will Seriously Make Your Heart Smile

Did you know that love actually is blind? And that men are more likely to say “I love you” before their female partner does? Neither did we, until we started researching the wonderful and mysterious world of falling in love and having feelings for another human being. Love hold so much space not only in our lives, but in our psychology, in our biology, and in our history. Here, we’ve outlined 50 facts about love that will help you to understand it, and maybe even find it in your own life.

food

1. Eye contact is key.

Some extraordinary research has found that couples who are in love and bond in a romantic relationship synchronize their heart rates after gazing into each others’ eyes for three minutes.

2. Love works fast.

It only takes up to 4 minutes to decide whether you like someone or not.

3. Love can be addictive.

Falling in love is much like taking a dose of cocaine, as both experiences affect the brain similarly and trigger a similar sensation of euphoria. Research found that falling in love produces several euphoria-inducing chemicals that stimulate 12 areas of the brain at the same time.

4. There’s a reason why cuddling feels so good.

Oxytocin, the so-called love or cuddle hormone, is produced during an embrace or cuddle.

5. Your heart can actually break.

Research has provided evidence that intense, traumatizing events, such as a break-up, divorce, loss of a loved one, physical separation from a loved one, or betrayal can cause real physical pains in the area of one’s heart. This condition is called the Broken Heart Syndrome.

6. Biologically, your love changes with time.

It is estimated that romantic love, which is linked with euphoria, dependence, sweaty palms, butterflies and alike, only lasts about a year. After that first year begins the so-called “committed love” stage. The transition is linked with elevated neurotrophin protein levels in newly formed couples.

7. Love goes hand in hand with stress.

Studies show that people at an early stage of love have lower levels of serotonin, which is associated with feelings of happiness and well-being, and higher levels of cortisol, associated with stress.

8. Priorities change when looking for a long term companion.

There’s evidence that when looking for a fling, the body wins over the face on a physical attraction basis. The opposite is true, however, for those who are looking for a long-term relationship partner.

9. Feelings make life that much sweeter.

Researchers looked at a group of people, and found that those who were thinking about love said a specific kind of food was sweeter than those thinking about jealousy or something neutral.

10. Some people can’t feel love.

Some individuals who claim never to have felt romantic love suffer from hypopituitarism, a rare disease that doesn’t allow a person to feel the rapture of love.

11. Your body has a “vein of love.”

Engagement rings are often worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because the ancient Greeks maintained that that finger contains the vena amoris, or the “vein of love,” that runs straight to the heart.

Food > romance

12. Sometimes, your emotions play tricks on your heart.

Getting dumped often leads to “frustration attraction,” which causes an individual to love the one who dumped him or her even more.

13. Love is chaos.

The enduring symbol of love, Cupid (or Eros) is said to have come from Chaos (“The Yawning Void”) and represents the primitive forces of love and desire.

14. ‘Love’ is a word derived from Sanskrit.

The term “love” is from the Sanskrit lubhyati, meaning “desire.”

15. The parent trap.

Some psychologists argue that we fall in love with someone who is similar to the parent with whom we have unresolved childhood issues, unaware we are seeking to resolve this childhood relationship in adulthood.

16. Add a little adventure to your life.

Studies show that if a man meets a woman in a dangerous situation (and vice versa), such as on a trembling bridge, he is more likely to fall in love with her than if he met her in a more mundane setting, such as in an office.

17. Sometimes, timing really is everything.

Timing significantly influences love. Individuals are more likely to fall in love if they are looking for adventure, craving to leave home, lonely, displaced in a foreign country, passing into a new stage of life, or financially and psychologically ready to share themselves or start a family.

18. Women like testosterone.

Women around the world are more likely to fall in love with partners with ambition, education, wealth, respect, status, a sense of humor, and who are taller than they are. Women also prefer distinctive cheekbones and a strong jawbone, which are linked to testosterone levels.

19. Eye contact is key.

Scientists suggest that merely staring into another person’s eyes is a strong precursor to love. In an experiment, strangers of the opposite sex were put in a room together for 90 minutes where they talked about intimate details and then stared into each other’s eyes without talking. Many felt a deep attraction for each other, and two married each other six months later.

20. Attraction is evolutionary.

Men in love show more activity in the visual part of the brain, while women in love show more activity in the part of the brain that governs memory. Scientists speculate that men have to size up a woman visually to see if she can bear babies, while women have to remember aspects of man’s behavior to determine if he would be an adequate provider.

21. Slow and steady wins the race.

The longer and more deliberate a courtship, the better the prospects for a long marriage. People who have intense, Hollywood-type romances at the beginning are more likely to divorce.

Harvard

22. Men and women feel love differently.

Women often feel loved when talking face to face with their partner; men, on the other hand, often feel emotionally close when they work, play, or talk side by side.

23. Love is a journey.

Scientists suggest that most people will fall in love approximately seven times before marriage.

24. Love literally makes you grow.

The act of falling in love is known to have a calming effect on a person’s body and mind. This, in turn, will raise levels of nerve growth for about a year.

25. Opposites don’t attract.

Individuals who appear similar and at the same level of attractiveness are more likely to end up together than people who look significantly different. Many social researchers indicate that there is a pattern in how people chose their mates or romantic relationships. This is demonstrated through a Matching Hypothesis, which indicates that people are more attracted to others who share a similar attraction level with them.

26. Butterflies are a real, stress related, thing.

The expression of having butterflies in your stomach is a real feeling that is caused by an adrenaline rush. When and if you fall for someone, it will probably be hard to avoid the feeling of butterflies dancing and fluttering around in your stomach. This happens as a body’s response to a fight-or-flight situation.

27. Lady in red.

For reasons that are not yet clear, studies consistently show that when the same woman wears red versus a different color, men are more inclined to engage her in deeper conversations. This is true even when the clothing styles are otherwise identical.

28. Love & sex influence us differently.

Research has shown that thinking of love influences creativity and abstract thoughts, as well as long-term planning. Thinking of sex however influences immediate decision making and attention to momentary details.

29. The “I love you” moment.

Statistically, men are more likely to say “I love you” in a relationship than women. Men are also more likely to be more emotionally affected by break-ups than women are.

30. Kissing extends your lifespan.

Men who kiss their wives in the morning are thought to live up to 5 years longer.

31. Love potions are made from human sweat.

Historically, human sweat has been used to make love-attracting perfumes, and even love-potions. Though sweat contains pheromones that are key ingredients in attraction, the efficacy of sweat in perfumes and potions is questionable at best.

32. Symmetry is everything.

Symmetry is how our brains judge beauty. A symmetrical faced man will begin having sex four years earlier, have more sex, affairs, and lovers than those with asymmetry in their faces. Women will also experience more orgasms with symmetrically faced men.

33. Food > romance.

According to a study, brain scans reveal that women are more responsive to romantic stimuli after eating a meal than before.

34. You have to be supportive.

Studies have found that one of the most crucial factors in a relationship is how you celebrate your partner’s good news.

35. A Rabbi created speed dating.

Speed dating was invented by a rabbi in 1999, based on a Jewish tradition of chaperoned gatherings of young Jewish singles.

India

36. Love is blind.

When someone looks at a new love, the neural circuits that are usually associated with social judgement are suppressed. So in a way, love really is blind.

37. The heart hasn’t always represented love.

The heart symbol was first used to denote love in the 1250. Prior to that, it represented foliage.

38. Don’t fall in love if you have things to do.

It’s scientifically proven: being in love makes you a less productive person.

39. Love & OCD.

Romantic love is biochemically indistinguishable from having a severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.

40. Some people are afraid of love.

Philophobia is the fear of falling in love.

41. Time to get online.

23% of the couples who meet through online dating end up marrying.

42. A lot of people are looking for love.

There are about 3 million first dates every day worldwide.

43. Do anything for love.

In India, there is a vigilante group called the “Love Commandos” that offers protection from harassment to couples from different castes who fall in love.

44. Reliability helps you thrive.

People with relatively prudent and reliable partners tend to perform better at work, earning more promotions, making more money, and feeling more satisfied with their jobs, according to research.

45. Kicking a bad habit, or falling out of love?

Recovering from a break-up is like a kicking an addiction to a drug, researchers found from looking at the brain scans of the broken-hearted.

46. Do soulmates exist?

A survey revealed that 52% of women say their husband is not their soulmate.

47. Love is a huge part of your life.

The average human will spend 6.8% of their lives socializing with someone they love, or the equivalent of around 1,769 days.

48. A vote for your birthday suit.

Those who wear nothing in bed are more content in their relationships than those who cover up, according to a poll.

49. Love is healing.

Research shows that long-term couples with deep, strong connections can successfully soothe each other in stressful situations or when one of them experiences pain simply by holding hands.

Judge

50. Love is everything.

A marvellous 75-year long study, which was conducted by a group of Harvard researchers, has shown that love is really all that matters. The participants’ lifelong experiences revealed that happiness and life fulfillment revolved around love or simply searching for love.

Many social researchers indicate that there is a pattern in how people chose their mates or romantic relationships. This is demonstrated through a Matching Hypothesis, which indicates that people are more attracted to others who share a similar attraction level with them.

26. Butterflies are a real, stress related, thing.

The expression of having butterflies in your stomach is a real feeling that is caused by an adrenaline rush. When and if you fall for someone, it will probably be hard to avoid the feeling of butterflies dancing and fluttering around in your stomach. This happens as a body’s response to a fight-or-flight situation.

27. Lady in red.

For reasons that are not yet clear, studies consistently show that when the same woman wears red versus a different color, men are more inclined to engage her in deeper conversations. This is true even when the clothing styles are otherwise identical.

28. Love & sex influence us differently.

Research has shown that thinking of love influences creativity and abstract thoughts, as well as long-term planning. Thinking of sex however influences immediate decision making and attention to momentary details.

29. The “I love you” moment.

Statistically, men are more likely to say “I love you” in a relationship than women. Men are also more likely to be more emotionally affected by break-ups than women are.

30. Kissing extends your lifespan.

Men who kiss their wives in the morning are thought to live up to 5 years longer.

31. Love potions are made from human sweat.

Historically, human sweat has been used to make love-attracting perfumes, and even love-potions. Though sweat contains pheromones that are key ingredients in attraction, the efficacy of sweat in perfumes and potions is questionable at best.

32. Symmetry is everything.

Symmetry is how our brains judge beauty. A symmetrical faced man will begin having sex four years earlier, have more sex, affairs, and lovers than those with asymmetry in their faces. Women will also experience more orgasms with symmetrically faced men.

33. Food > romance.

According to a study, brain scans reveal that women are more responsive to romantic stimuli after eating a meal than before.

34. You have to be supportive.

Studies have found that one of the most crucial factors in a relationship is how you celebrate your partner’s good news.

35. A Rabbi created speed dating.

Speed dating was invented by a rabbi in 1999, based on a Jewish tradition of chaperoned gatherings of young Jewish singles.

36. Love is blind.

When someone looks at a new love, the neural circuits that are usually associated with social judgement are suppressed. So in a way, love really is blind.

37. The heart hasn’t always represented love.

The heart symbol was first used to denote love in the 1250. Prior to that, it represented foliage.

38. Don’t fall in love if you have things to do.

It’s scientifically proven: being in love makes you a less productive person.

39. Love & OCD.

Romantic love is biochemically indistinguishable from having a severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.

40. Some people are afraid of love.

Philophobia is the fear of falling in love.

41. Time to get online.

23% of the couples who meet through online dating end up marrying.

42. A lot of people are looking for love.

There are about 3 million first dates every day worldwide.

43. Do anything for love.

In India, there is a vigilante group called the “Love Commandos” that offers protection from harassment to couples from different castes who fall in love.

44. Reliability helps you thrive.

People with relatively prudent and reliable partners tend to perform better at work, earning more promotions, making more money, and feeling more satisfied with their jobs, according to research.

45. Kicking a bad habit, or falling out of love?

Recovering from a break-up is like a kicking an addiction to a drug, researchers found from looking at the brain scans of the broken-hearted.

46. Do soulmates exist?

A survey revealed that 52% of women say their husband is not their soulmate.

47. Love is a huge part of your life.

The average human will spend 6.8% of their lives socializing with someone they love, or the equivalent of around 1,769 days.

48. A vote for your birthday suit.

Those who wear nothing in bed are more content in their relationships than those who cover up, according to a poll.

49. Love is healing.

Research shows that long-term couples with deep, strong connections can successfully soothe each other in stressful situations or when one of them experiences pain simply by holding hands.

50. Love is everything.

A marvellous 75-year long study, which was conducted by a group of Harvard researchers, has shown that love is really all that matters. The participants’ lifelong experiences revealed that happiness and life fulfillment revolved around love or simply searching for love.

3 Secrets To Successfully Sticking With A Weight Loss Programhttps://instaviral.pw/3-secrets-to-successfully-sticking-with-a-weight-loss-program/ Sat, 22 Sep 2018 01:19:12 +0000 https://instaviral.pw/?p=2446 Struggling to stick with your diet program?

You aren’t alone. Millions of people worldwide start up and fall off diet programs every day. Why is it so hard to stick with something?

Why they can’t carry out a plan once and for all?

Often, it’s due to a few key mistakes they’re making along the way. Let’s take a closer look at three secrets that you need to know about sticking with a diet program. When you put these secrets into action, you’ll find it’s easier than ever to get the results that you are looking for.

Get A Diet Buddy

One word of advice: don’t go at it alone. Those who get a diet buddy to do a diet and experience the high’s and low’s with them tend to stand a much better chance of seeing success in the long run.

If you can’t convince someone to do the diet with you, at the very least, find someone who will stand by your side and be there for support when you need it.

You will hit a hard time, and during that hard time, it can really help if you have someone there to encourage you through it.

 

Use Hunger-Busting Strategies

Hunger is another reason why many people can’t stick with a fat loss diet plan. Either they are cutting their calories back too far, thereby causing the hunger, or they are not eating foods that encourage satiety.

You want to focus your diet around foods that break down and digest slowly. Lean proteins coupled with fibrous carbohydrates are the best choices, followed closely by small doses of dietary fat.

While the calories in fat do add up quickly, a small amount added to your diet can work wonders to help you better control hunger.

 

Set Short Term Goals

Finally, consider setting some short term goals. Think about what it is that you want to accomplish within the next two or three weeks. Far too many people have a long term view of what they hope to achieve in a year’s time, but it’s too easy to lose sight of that light at the end of the tunnel.

Instead, focus on the here and now. Find a program such as The 3 Week Diet that has you focusing on the coming weeks ahead. Build good habits in those three weeks and you will be well set up for the future months.

Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you won’t lose all the weight you have to lose in just a week. Be patient, but at the same time, don’t fixate too far in the future. Otherwise, you’ll just lose motivation and give up.

Want to learn more about how to make the 3 week concept work for you? Check out The 3 Week Diet plan, which teaches you how to build proper habits over the course of three weeks that result in great weight loss and set you up for a future of weight loss and maintenance.
