16 match-ups are shown, but in Round 1 (today March 14th) only 8 are listed. Did I miss a round?
I feel it is very important (though perhaps overdue) to reiterate the fact that PEOPLE SHOULD NOT COLLECT POTTERY SHERDS FROM SITES OF ANY ARCHAEOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE. These artifacts are to be enjoyed with the eyes and left for future generations, lest we allow our local history to disappear piece-by-piece, as it has in Phoenix.
Trying to establish where Timothy O'Sullivan was born..any leads at all ??
I read this article in 2009. I saw the title this morning, and the whole story rushed back. I immediately imagined a person standing in their kitchen breaking open a poppy pod.
Pat Durkit was my mom and Dale was my brother. My mom died in September, 2011 - of Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
SB112 is, unfortunately, necessary. The media, and the opposition, demonize any individuals, or organization of individuals, who dare disagree with their agenda.
The only way to send a message, is for Arizona, just like many other states, to say, "you have overstepped your bounds".
"But SB 1112, which would make it a felony for federal officials to try to enforce any new federal laws or regulations regarding guns in Arizona is alive and well. It's a reaction to various proposals in Washington to ban assault-style weapons and ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 bullets. Violators—such as agents of the FBI or the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives—would be subject to arrest and imprisonment. The bill passed out of the Senate Public Safety Committee on a 5-2 vote last week."
Wow, scary times we are in.
Certainly a mixture of good and bad. Judy Burges', as mentioned above, is an idiot, wanting to call an unfertilized egg a child. What's next? Banning masturbation because it is wasting sperm?
I think the nullification effort is necessary. We are just one of many states doing the same.
I am generally not a fan of Ethan Orr, but that is a good bill, and should be heard.
Don't you just love House Appropriations Committee. Appropriations Chairman John Kavanagh? A bill proposed by a fellow Republican, Ethan Orr, comes out of one committee with an 8-0 vote, but moves to Kavanagh's appropriations committee, and he won't even give it a hearing. Ain't AZ style democracy just grand?
How could you not mention Judy Burges' bill to take data on fertility clinics, which will certainly become a save the sperm and egg bill?
@ lisa andrews. Steve K is not in the legislature, though I wish he was. The money Brewer proposes goes to schools not students.
Steve K has GOT to go spread the word via facebook at "No second term for Steve K"
I don't agree with paying students for grades which Brewer has proposed
Will the election reform bills move forward? There should be no less a "hurdle" to jump for those wanting to vote than for those wanting a "defensive tool."
Sorry just about any man on a bike looks a little "rough around the edges" IMO which equates to HOT but do we really need a law for that?
Do we really need another form of legal tender in AZ? If I have real gold and silver I am holding on to it as the $1 bills I have may soon be worthless!
I have to agree with HB 2401, which would limit service animals allowed in eateries to dogs and miniature horses. After discussing this with one of the creators of the Federal ADA law and having been involved in ADA litigation in the past I was shocked to see the abuse of the law by many here in AZ
I've always known that erotic spanking existed, but I didn't find out about domestic discipline until I started writing and researching spanking prior to writing about it.
The artwork accompanying this blog is particularly interesting to me -- it's the same artwork used on the cover my domestic discipline erotic romance FALSE PRETENSES.
ThankYou Tucson Weekly for making the Pride Issue something to really be proud of!! Bravo!
Congratulations Susan Stryker for making a difference. I've recently arrived in Tucson from California due to job relocation. Oh, what a culture shock! I'm especially hopeful about the following mention in the article: "There's also a project under development at the institute to extend its work to the greater community. 'How do we be an engine to make a difference?'"
I agree that the strong arguments deriding the usefulness of background checks furthers the argument of requiring licenses for owning and/or operating firearms. But, skipping past discussion of the mess of federal, state and local confusion over what kinds and levels of restrictions legally or practically can or ought be made on the Second Amendment, and sliding around how licensing ownership requires widespread inspection of housing and other properties to actually effect a decrease in criminal or looney use of firearms, I think that firearms owners and possessors should be required to have gunsafes and be required to participate in serious training in possession and handling of weapons.
I believe that investment in maintaining and handling any weapons has been and is being frequently blown off. Law enforcement agencies have better training, but still often neglect to start or maintain what would get their people home safely, and a majority of gun-possessors, whether upright citizens or various criminals blow-off training. What and how such safekeeping and skill practice is to be encouraged or enforced is discussable.
I also think that those who are uninterested in owning firearms, and those who oppose general or even particular civilian ownership of such, should help pay for safekeeping and training. Why? Because the vast majority of those people are as guilty as many gun-possessors of choosing to spend much of life in mutual-reassurance instead of building safe and healthy neighborhoods and communities.
The Tucson Weekly has published several repeat stories on one neighborhood where a kid was shot, where many people must know exactly who did it, but nobody was coming forward. For large-scale, see how a Chicago woman has started a campaign to get people to snitch on the murderers. Chicago, and all the other large cities, have plenty of violence and plenty of "social activists". Much good progress has been done, but really, people there on many opposite sides have been comfortable with symbolic actions, often done by somebody else, and relayed to make comfy-womfy feelings that substitute for getting off rear-ends in mass numbers.
One specific example of how to help is for people to organize more (far more) voluntary respite care for parents. Larger organizations could more easily back people up, there might be classes held, with regular practice and discussion of how to parent, and widespread presence and practice would be more useful to problematic homes, such as in Newtown. Yes, I am accusing the majority of the population, whether they label themselves progressive or conservative, of abeting mass killing.
Thank you for your time, Aaron F Johnson.
Tucson's kink community goes far beyond spanking. I wrote about DD vs BDSM a few years ago. My conclusion was that the kinky dom/sub relationship is not too different from the HoH relationship-- except that the kinksters admit that they like giving spankings and getting spanked. On the other hand, the domestic discipline proponents cloak the whole spanking discipline ritual in the guise of maintaining traditional male/female household roles-- including making sure the wife knows her place and follows His rules. It surprised me how many traditional Christians practiced DD.
F/F, F/M, or M/M domestic discipline may not be the norm but it does happen. My partner and I are in what is referred to mostly as a female lead relationship. It is not the norm but it works very well for us.
I saw someone liked the Disciplinary Wives Club and I think the author/creator of that site did a wonderful job. I also strongly recommend Learning Domestic Discipline. It is not solely F/M by any means but is a terrific resource for domestic discipline and by the far the best on the web. The reporter for this article is more then welcome to interview me for a followup should she want a different approach to the standard domestic discipline. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Good article, another interesting forum is the disciplinary wives club (disciplinarywivesclub.com) which is about domestic discipline but with the woman the head of the household...
Its great to see dd getting attention finally instead of Bdsm or other flavors of "kink" as that is not what I nor majority of dd'ers believe it is. However I have to agree with others- I much prefer learning domestic discipline, christian domestic discipline or taken in hand. The content on those are by real people who practice domestic discipline in there relationships not someone who just spanks women for fun.
I am not from the U.S.A. so I am not familiar with this news outlet but I would love to see dd be brought to the media here in the U.K.
I am impressed that you were able to take a topic that is taboo to a lot of people and was able to write it without prejudice. I am also glad that you did not portray those being spanked as being weak, insecure, brainwashed, a victim, or any of the other things that are frequently thought of those in DD relationships.
With that said, I think that you could go deeper into the subject of DD. First you seem to have done a lot of your research with CDD (Christian Domestic Discipline). That is a valid group, and there is quite a bit the same as DD there is quite a bit different from DD.
Also there are a lot of benefits a couple gets from a DD. Before, during and after a punishment the one getting spanked feels cared for and loved and free from the stressers that are part of everyday life.
Plus there is another faucet of DD that was not even mentioned. There are a lot of people who have discipline relationships and are not in a romantic relationships with the person disciplining them (frequently referred to as disciplinarians). These relationships are only about accountability and discipline (no sex or erotic play at all). I personally am in one of those relationships for a few years and am happy and content with the arrangements and relationship I have with my disciplinarian.
Here are a couple links that I think would help explain DD.
Delighted to see that DD (domestic discipline) has made it into the mainstream channels! I'd like to clarify that same-sex DD relationships are not an anomaly, although a casual outsider looking at blogs may easily get that impression. I write about F/F domestic discipline relationships and would love to share information on the subject.
