EurekAlert posted a finding by University of Washington sociologists that “Family discipline, religious attendance, attachment to school cut levels of later violence among aggressive children.”Do we really need scientists to tell us the obvious? Everyone seems to know this except secular researchers. Solomon and Paul can tell the University of Washington all they need to know.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Many hands fumbling under benches, in nooks, and crevices are more likely to make the grab. A difficult puzzle is solved more easily with combined brain power. If you took our Geocaching Quiz and learned you are a Social Butterfly, chances are that you know the advantages that come with geocaching in a group. But finding someone to go geocaching with can sometimes be difficult, especially when just starting out. Luckily, there are geocaching organizations and associations all around that world that connect geocachers to other local geocachers, strengthen the local and global geocaching community, help beginners get into the game, and so, so much more.To learn what it means to be a part of a geocaching group, we asked two geocaching associations, Washington State Geocaching Association (WSGA) in the United States and Geopt.org in Portugal to share a little bit about what they do.Washington State Geocaching Association (WSGA)GeoArt created by the WSGAWSGA was founded in 2002 when 19 geocachers learned that geocaching would be banned in all Washington State Parks. (But don’t worry. Thanks to WSGA, geocaches are still allowed in Washington State Parks and there is now an official Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour.) Since then, the association has grown to almost 500 members. Abby Wolfe, President of the WSGA, says, “We work with parks at all levels (city, county, state, federal) to promote geocaching as a beneficial, family-oriented activity through our highly regarded Park Liaison Program and CITO activities.” Their efforts continue to nurture successful partnerships with parks and allow geocaching in most parts of the state.The organization in Washington also hosts events, meet and greets, and organizes special outings such as an annual Summer Campout.WSGA also functions as the local news for geocachers. Geocachers in Washington can stay updated on geocaching events in their area by following WSGA on Facebook. If you are a Washingtonian geocacher and want to become a member, you can join on this website.Geopt.org (Portugal)Soccer and geocaching mix well: Mini-Super Liga Geopt 2013.Geopt.org, Portugal’s equivalent to the WSGA, has collected an impressive 6442 registered members since being established in 2010. This accounts for approximately 30% of the Portuguese geocaching community.Gustavo Vidal, Vice-President of Geopt.org, describes the work of the Portuguese geocaching association: “Our organization has a Geocaching portal at www.geopt.org, where you can find all our activities. We have a Geocaching discussion forum, an online TV network (www.geopt.tv) where we play Geocaching vídeos and broadcast live some of our main events, and where we give annual awards to the owners of the best Portuguese caches, or the Mini-Super Liga, a soccer tournament with geocachers from allover the country.” The club also releases the free GeoMagazine and provides discounts for their members in Geocaching and adventure shops or camping parks.The sense of community geocaching organizations offer can be a great help for new geocachers and old pros alike, and are an easy way to make new geocaching friends. You can find a geocaching group in your area in the geocaching forums or by searching for your location and “geocaching organisation” online. Other words to search for are ”geocaching club” or “geocaching association”.Are you part of a geocaching association?

NAGPUR: The Nagpur police will host a day-long inter-State police coordination meet on Monday to formulate a strategy to check crime across borders.“IPS officers of the rank of Superintendent of Police and above from Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Eastern Maharashtra will participate in the coordination meeting on August 28. This meeting is an initiative of Nagpur Commissioner of Police K. Venkateshan. The aim is to discuss and formulate a strategy to check criminal activities and criminals operating in these three adjoining areas,” Nagpur Joint Commissioner of Police Shivaji Bodkhe said at a press conference on Saturday.Mr. Bodhkhe said the police have observed that miscreants commit the crime in one of these regions, and go into hiding into the neighbouring region. “This meeting will see the exchange of information about such crimes and criminals. Nagpur is emerging as a transport hub, and the city is expected to see an increase in the population of migrants. Most of the districts in eastern Maharashtra share borders with districts in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. The districts adjoining Chhattisgarh also witness Maoist activities, so it is important to share information and improve coordination,” he said.The Additional Director General of Police of the Crime Investigation Department of Madhya Pradesh police and the Inspector General of Police of Chhattisgarh’s Durg range will represent their States at this meeting. In all 22 IPS officers, including the SPs of Rajnandgoan, Kanker, Balaghat and Gadchiroli districts, will take part.
