Summary

Home sweet home...

Jade loves the house she's just moved into with her family. She doesn't even mind being the new girl at the high school: It's a fresh start, and there's that one guy with the dreamy blue eyes...

But then things begin happening. Strange, otherworldly things.

Jade's little brother claims to see a glimmering girl in his room. Jade's jewelry gets moved around, as if by an invisible hand. Kids at school whisper behind her back like they know something she doesn't.

Soon, Jade must face an impossible fact: that her perfect house... is haunted.

Haunted by a ghost who's seeking not just vengeance, but the truth. The ghost of a girl who ruled Jade's school - until her untimely death last year. It's up to Jade to put the pieces together before her own life is at stake. As Jade investigates the mystery, she discovers that her new friends in town have more than a few deep, dark secrets.

But is one of them a murderer?

    Bios and Mythos

    Joseph Campbell wrote this article for a collection of essays, Psychoanalysis and Culture, printed in 1951 to celebrate the sixtieth birthday of the famed psychiatrist and ethnologist, Géza Róheim. In it, he seeks to define the biological roots of the human mythic impulse.
     
    Written two years after his seminal Hero with a Thousand Faces, “Bios & Mythos” takes what was, for Campbell, a unique view of myth. In deference to Róheim, who defined myth as a mechanism for satisfying the universal human desire to return to the infant’s safety with its mother, Campbell invokes what was to become one of his favorite images for the function of myth: that of the marsupial pouch, the second womb. Here, more than elsewhere in his work, Campbell emphasizes myth as an intermediary aid that the individual can outgrow.
     
    “Bios & Mythos” is available in print as part of The Flight of the Wild Gander.

    Hidden Secrets To Restore Natural Hearing Ability
     
    Do you have trouble hearing? Do you make people repeat what they say? Does your ear get sensitive to loud noises or do you still hear sounds even when it’s silent - having these common hearing disorders known as “hyperacusis” and “tinnitus,” respectively?
     
    Then you are one of the 466 millions of people around the world, according to the World Health Organization, who suffer from hearing loss.
     
    Fret not, many people go about their days without realizing that they have some kinds of hearing impairment, so aren’t aware of how much they are actually hampered when it comes to common daily tasks nor living the full productive life that they could be due to the limitation of poor hearing.
     
    The problem is only going to get worse with our increasing use of audio electronic devices and an exploding population, where everything within our immediate surroundings seems to be getting louder and louder. We no longer have the peace and quiet we need to avoid the danger of loud noises; thus, trying to put ourselves out of harm’s way for hearing damage is ever becoming impossible. Simply put, more people are slowly becoming deaf every day.
     
    What can one do against this growing noisy epidemic? You can fight back by discovering ways to protect your ears, as well as even improve your hearing conditions by combining western and eastern alternative approaches.
     
    “Better Hearing” will show you how to strengthen your hearing and prevent hearing loss naturally:
     
    * The ear exercises that you can perform to hear multiple sounds more distinctly.
     
    * The habitual adaptations to incorporate to increase your hearing ability range.
     
    * The best nutrition and supplements your body needs to sustain healthy hearing.
     
    * The frequency level of sounds to determine what noises you can and can’t hear.
     
    * The advanced methods to relieving common hearing symptoms, like tinnitus.
     
    ...plus many more secrets that very few know about for hearing improvement.
     
    If you are already using a hearing aid, you can strive to rely less on it. Even if you don’t have any hearing issue, you should start taking better care of your hearing now before it’s too late. Better your hearing today!
