Re: “THRIVE ‌ Martial Arts

This article feeds into the common westernized misconceptions of Taijiquan(Taichi)
In reality it is as effective a Martial art as any named in this article.
It depends mostly on the teacher's knowledge and what the student really wants to derive from it. It's true most people these days practice it more for it's health benefits but it is completely untrue that it's inception was for the purpose of allowing older people to continue to practice martial arts. Although Taijiquan is strictly for self defense every single aspect practiced in Taijiquan has martial purpose. And miraculously so, on the flip side, has a health/longevity purpose. However it is such a sophisticated art, it does take years of practice to really grasp all the subtleties contained in the art. On Wudang mountain in China, the legendary birth place of the art, the Masters start students as young kids which allows more time and likelyness for them to reach Mastery.
I will be moving to Charleston soon and spreading Wudang Martial Arts of which Taijiquan, Gong Fu, and Xing Yi are in the curriculum.
For video examples of these arts

I am a certified instructor under Zhou Xuan Yun, The only Daoist Priest and Wudang Martial Arts Master in the country
Anyone wishing to study these arts can contact me

Re: “Hidden Heritage

The Remley's Park development has plotted 11 lots near the cemetery while there appears to be a cordoned path and separate area for the cemetery. This may be the inevitable change which accompanies growth while this plan seems to be a respectful outcome versus the development plan of 2008. Much like the older cemeteries in cities such as New York City which date to the early 1700s a peoples' heritage can continue side-by-side with growth. As a point of clarification, Scanlonville is the community of people living along 3rd-through-7th Avenues while Remley's Point is more representative of the boat landing area bordering the Wando River. As a resident of Scanlonville I learned the name by simply reading the sign located at the junction of Fifth Avenue and Mathis Ferry Road. Much like the Old Village, Hamlin Plantation and Snowden it is an area of Mount Pleasant. Born in California and raised near NYC I also lived in Atlanta for 20 years where I traveled to work with the Japanese, Koreans, Europeans, Singaporeans and Indians among others. Upon returning to work in NYC I listened to unflattering stereotypical references to southerners from people who never lived in the region. Some people will always disparage others while the best persons embrace differences and the uniqueness of human spirit.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

Keeping Veronica and Dusty in prayer this Father's Day. If there is one positive aspect of this story it is that it has brought attention to the ugly side of the U.S. adoption industry. This is a vicious story of human trafficking and (while not typical) is not entirly unique either. The amazing thing about Veronica is how many adoptive family supporters have come together with first family supporters to mourn her loss and pray for her.... It's the one issue on which we can ALL agree. See attached article Adoptive Families Circle...http://www.adoptivefamiliescircle.comgroup…

Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

I would just like to know where I CAN meet a man who's into this sort of thing - especially the Civil War and WWII. I live in Mississippi by the way. Also, are there any websites for single reenactors???

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

More lies and more op-ed propaganda. Bottom line Veronica BROWN belongs with her father, sister, grandparents and cousins in Oklahoma. If the Capobiancos had one whit of compassion they would long since Voluntarily given custody back to the biological family. Adoption is for children without a family. Stop child trafficking now!

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

People need to read and research the truth before telling lies about Veronica's real father. Read all the lies and half truths that are put out there by the biological mother and the adoptive parents. They knew from the beginning that this little girl should have not been sold to them.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

I would say that these crazy people have recieved their 15 minutes of fame. Now, can we all agree that they just go away and buy a new baby? Man, if GOD wanted them to have a child, he would of allowed them to produce one. He did not, so maybe that is a sign they should not have children??????

This couple is sick sick sick. I am disgusted that they are keeping the ball rolling on this. The proof is in the pudding. This couple is trying to use the media to their advantage, and it seems to be working, but if people would actually look into this cae on their own, they would find a lot of lies and deceit by the mother and this gross couple.

IF, this little girl is somehow given to these crazy people, she will grow to hate and resent them because of this and in the end, leave them, mark my words!

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

Dusten Brown is HER FATHER. Period. These people are crazy and are NOT her parents. I don't care what some government court says. That is where she should be, with her biological family that loves her. Shame on them for being so selfish.

Go ahead, get her back and see how much she resents you people when she finds out you took her from her daddy that wanted her.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

..Veronica Does NOT need saving. To the C's You are making this about YOU now, and it is NOT about you!! Veronica is happy and healthy and well taken care of. If you cared so much for her you would recognize that she doesn't even remember you! She WILL resent you! Plus it would be nice if facts were laid out on the line about how info was falsified to even begin the adoption! The C's are not fit to be parents, when they can't care less about what will happen to this child if taking from her blood family and daddy Dusten that love her very much and it shows she loves them to. There's a reason why you can't have kids, because you are not fit to raise one. This man was cheated out of his daughters life for the first part of her life because of some ungrateful woman who was spiteful. Baby Veronica should have never been put up for adoption in the first place.
Immoral and unethical. The CN gave custody to grandparents. This guy is a HERO!! The only criminals are the birth mother and adoptive parents who committed fraud. Money is evil to the Root when you give your child up for money. Adoption is for children who need a family not for children who already having a family that loves them and want them!!! The media has been so one sided in the coverage.They just keep making these people in SC look like the victim because they invested so much time and money into this kid and now they stand to lose "everything". There are lots of children out there needing a home. Go buy one of them that don't have any family!! I live here in SC a few miles from these so called people how could they how on earth could they be so mean they do not want Veronica's voice heard. SC has made a mess of everything! I'm ashamed to be from this place. These people are so wrong in what they have done to this child. Support for Dusten & Veronica! Support for her grandparents, aunts uncles and especially her big sister!! Arrest the birthmom and adoptive parents for going over the legal Oklahoma limit on contributions to a birthmother! Its a $500 max without court approval and they paid $10K plus expenses! Stop the baby buying/selling! Support fathers rights, veterans rights, children's rights and Native American Laws! The purpose of adoption is for children without homes, to find one. Its purpose is NOT for homes without children, to find one, that is just the added benefit. Tears streaming down cheeks. She does not need to be saved from the Brown's!!

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

These adoptive parents sicken me! claiming they love her but only want this child back for their own personal problems, this child doesn't remember them! She's been with her real dad! Who she will remember! This child will feel betrayed by not only her birth mom but now also by her adoptive demons

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

Melanie and Matt Capobianco you should leave this baby with her Natural Father. She belongs with him. I am sorry that you have chosen to go on a media campaign about Veronica, but she is not yours, never was Legally yours and she is not a thing to be in court like a stolen car. You are really showing just how much you Don't care about this baby. You are just showing how a white couple saved this Native American child from her people. Leave her alone and go adopt a white baby.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

His ex-fiancé gave their child up for adoption without his knowledge or consent!
Patently false. On Jan 6th, 2010 "a process server presented Father with legal papers entitled "Acceptance of Service and Answer of Defendant," which stated he was not contesting the adoption of Baby Girl and that he waived the thirty day waiting period and notice of the hearing."…

Dusten signed that form. Note, his actual "consent" for the adoption was not necc. under SC law since he had provided no support to either the birth mother nor the child, Veronica. "Looking to South Carolina law, Father's consent to the adoption would not be required because he neither lived with Mother for a continuous period of six months before birth, nor contributed to her pregnancy-related expenses."

That's how the "war veteran" treats his child?

He gained custody of Veronica 19 months ago and now South Carolina has stripped him of his rights to her!
Actually, the US Supreme Court did. It told the SC Supreme Court that they were incorrect in allowing Dusten Brown to use a law giving Indian parents rights that others do not called the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).

Your paranoia is evident. You posted here did you not? As for the gag order which encompasses both the Browns as well as the Capobiancos, Family Court enacts gags on all proceedings relating to children. I'm sure you knew that.

pass on this story and let people know the corruption involved and laws broken in order to steal his child..
Again, allegations yet no prosecutor nor judge from OK courts to SC courts to the US Supreme Court has ever agreed with these (always) vague allegations. Kudos for persistence though.

again.... while hes away on a month long training mission with the National Guard they plan on taking her ...again....
The adoption is finalized. She is legally the Capobianco's daughter. Naturally, at some point they will transfer her physical custody as well. I don't know when that will occur but there is a thing such as Emergency Leave. Just sayin'...

their plan is to give her cookies and place her in front of a TV while she crying and grieving for her DADDY.MOMMY.SISSY KELSY.GRandpa & Grandma.
Oh really? Your hyperbole aside, that is NOT the transition plan. Interested readers can view it here and judge for themselves...…
