  • Men can be victims of Domestic Violence
    One in four men will be a victim of domestic violence in the United States. Forty-eight percent of men have dealt with some sort of psychological aggression from a domestic partner. This percent equals that of female victims.
  • Cognitive Plenty versus Cognitive Deprivation

With the sun shining and the water levels high a few locals took their jet skis to the river, entertaining themselves and any spectators that happened by.
