June 2013 Charlotte Crime Statistics

Safety is a crucial element of our standard of living. It is also a major concern for anyone living in the greater Charlotte area. Our Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department works hard every day and night to keep crime off our streets. They have reduced personal violence to one of the lowest levels in 30 years, but it is impossible for them to stop every crime from taking place.
Much of personal crime prevention is aimed at making yourself less of a target to criminals. This is known throughout the security industry as target hardening. Target hardening can be as advanced as enrolling in a self-defense class or as primitive as turning the lock on your front door. Many Burglars will spend no longer than 60 seconds to try breaking into a home. Goods locks and good neighbors can be big deterrents to burglars. Making yourself and your property an unattractive target is a central theme of crime prevention.
 
The following year-to-date statistics are compared to January-June of 2012:
  • Homicide – 11.1% Decrease (24 Total in 2013, 5 in June)
    • Compare to 27 in Jan-June of 2012
  • Robbery – 1.5% Decrease (844 Total YTD, 145 in June)
  • Rape – 18% Increase – (131 Total YTD, 16 in June 2013)
    • Compare to 111 in Jan-June 2012
    • 95% of Reported Rapes Involved Known Acquaintances
  • Arson – 15.3% Increase (113 Total YTD, 20 in June)
    • Compare to 98 in Jan-June 2012
  • Vehicle Theft – 20.2% Decrease (828 Total YTD, 175 in June)
  • Larceny
    • Total – 3.9% Decrease (10524 Total YTD, 1855 in June)
    • Auto – 7.6% Decrease (3537 Total YTD, 1243 in June)
  • Burglary
    • Total – 13.9% Decrease (3042 Total YTD, 537 in June)
      • Compare to 3534 in Jan-June 2012
    • Residential – 12.4% Decrease (2453 Total YTD, 425 in June)
    • Commercial – 19.6% Decrease (477 Total YTD, 112 in June)
  • Aggravated Assault – 7.0% Decrease (1161 Total YTD, 297 in June)
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have divided Charlotte into 13 districts, varying in size.  The number of assigned officers also varies between districts.  CMPD is comprised of around 1,717 sworn officers, over 564 civilian staff, and over 400 volunteers. The department not only patrols the city limits, but also enforces the unincorporated communities of Mecklenburg County. We have included the crime statistics page to display the progress made against crime in each Mecklenburg area division.

Aug 19 ~ Charlotte View: "Astrology, Divination & Mythology" by Leomoonrising.com 08/19 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Science Podcasts

Aug 19 ~ Charlotte View: "Astrology, Divination & Mythology" by Leomoonrising.com 08/19 by Charlotte View Internet Radio | Science Podcasts

Charlotte View welcomes Blake Thews with the topic: "Astrology, Divination & Mythology" How the Spiritual World Communicates with Us
Blake is the founder of Leo Moon Rising where she shares her knowledge on Astrology, Divination and Mythology and how they relate to each other. She believes they should be seen as ancient tools that are here to help us learn more about who we are and why we do the things we do. She is also a yoga instructor and a writer.

For much of human history, the heavens above were the home of the Great Gods, the forces that control and shape the fate of nations. Sky-signs such as the movements of the planets and the stars revealed their actions, will and desires. By observing and understanding their significance, we might have a key to destiny and the way the cosmos is unfolding. This is the central motivation for what became Astrology, the knowledge or way of the stars.
Astrology is an unique blend of science, symbolism, magic, and fate. Today it flourishes as a subculture, providing many people with an insight into how their lives connect with the world of myths and symbols.
1. Understanding what makes you who you are
2. Knowing the skill and abilities that you brought with you into this lifetime
3. Determining your Life Path
4. Understanding the cycles of your life.
5. Relationship compatibility.
6. Determining the best career.
7. Determining when to begin a project or new enterprise.
8. Looking at the pros and cons of relocation.
9. Find out what your karmic influences are.
10. Look at the year ahead

Fuego/Element Fire

Basic Attributes: creative, passionate, dynamic, hot-tempered, active, independent, dangerous, intuitive, masculine
We’ve all likely heard the phrase “If you play with fire, you’re going to get burned” more than once in our lives. Most of us have probably found this to be true firsthand, whether figuratively, literally, or both. Fire can be irresistible – it’s beauty, it’s intensity, and it’s powerful ability to change or transform something immediately draw us in. In Tarot, Fire is represented by Wands (Clubs in a regular deck of cards). http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/minor-arcana/suit-of-wands/

Fire signs typically are quick to accept a challenge or chase and like to feel decisions are inspired and spiritually linked. Expression is founded in creativity – bringing something new into the world, whether by fighting for new ground, ruling with flair, or searching for higher truth.
Astrologically, Fire takes the form of:

Stay Grounded/Element Earth
Basic Attributes: Solid, practical, steady, fertile, manifesting, feminine, sensual
Imagine standing outside barefoot with your feet connecting to the earth. What kind of ground comes to mind for you? Is it a warm, sandy beach? Or a cool, grassy lawn? Maybe it’s wet mud that squishes between your toes, or a dry and cracked clay that leaves your feet coated with orange dust.
The element of Earth represents the energy of being present in the material world, where one is able to manifest the intangible into the tangible, the immaterial into the material. Earth is a feminine element, meaning it is receptive and often waits for energy to come to it rather than initiating action. In Tarot, Earth is represented by Pentacles (Diamonds in a regular deck of cards). http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/minor-arcana/suit-of-pentacles/

Blowin in the Wind/Element Air
Basic Attributes: communication-oriented, social, lives in the mental planes, masculine, idea-oriented, verbal, rational
“Blowin in the Wind” was written and released by Bob Dylan in the early sixties when he was about 20/21 years of age. Who of us born and raised in the US between the mid 1950s and 1980 didn’t grow up with this song at least in the background of our childhood? It’s a spiritual anthem that can be considered to address a plethora of human issues and events. The song’s simplicity and ambiguity has frustrated some, but also inspired millions.
The element of Air represents the energy of communication in any form, be it writing, speaking, playing music, singing, developing technology, etc. Air is also associated with various mediums such as radio, tv, and computers. Air is a masculine element, meaning it is initiating and often takes action rather than waiting for change to come to it first. In Tarot, Air is represented by Swords (Spades in a regular deck of cards). http://www.biddytarot.com/tarot-card-meanings/minor-arcana/suit-of-swords/



Water, Water, Everywhere

Basic Attributes: emotional, intuitive, controlling, morphing, feelings, relationships, love, life-giving, fertile
Water is the mother of all elements, constituting roughly 70 percent of both our bodies and the planet. Does anyone else think that correlation is significant?? We are of this planet, and this planet is of us.
Water nurtures, brings life, sustains life, and takes life away. It is the most powerful, impactful, and necessary element. Before animals can even breathe or touch the ground with their feet, they need water to live; we wouldn’t exist to take those first breaths if water hadn’t sustained us through gestation.
Water changes – morphs – as it adapts to the environment and temperatures around it. It can be a solid, liquid, or gas, and it is a conduit for many other substances in it as it moves energy around our planet.
The element of Water represents the energy of basic life functioning, yet it’s power to destroy is also immense. Water is a feminine element, meaning it is receptive and often waits for energy to come to it rather than initiating action, like a tsunami following an earthquake. In Tarot, Water is represented by Cups (Hearts in a regular deck of cards). http://www.tarotteachings.com/tarot-cups.html

Description: Are you a Shaklee lover like Charlotte View? Did you make your way to Nashville, Tennessee for the 2013 Shaklee Global Conference along with Pat and Bob Dussinger?

What should you look for in a weight-loss program?

Successful, long-term weight control must focus on your overall health, not just on what you eat. Changing your lifestyle is not easy, but adopting healthy habits may help you manage your weight in the long run.
Effective weight-loss programs include ways to keep the weight off for good. These programs promote healthy behaviors that help you lose weight and that you can stick with every day.
Safe and effective weight-loss programs should include
  • a plan to keep the weight off over the long run guidance on how to develop healthier eating and physical activity habits
  • guidance on how to develop healthier eating and physical activity habits
  • ongoing feedback, monitoring, and support
  • slow and steady weight-loss goals—usually ½ to 2 pounds per week (though weight loss may be faster at the start of a program)

Listen how Shaklee 180 is helping people lose the right kind of weight and stay lean & healthy.

Lose Fat, Not Muscle

Here are some frequent asked questions about obesity  


1. Can being overweight lead to health problems?
Yes. Being overweight is linked to a number of health problems, including:
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Gallbladder disease and gallstones
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing for a short time during sleep) and asthma
2. How do I know if I am obese?
Obesity is defined as an excess proportion of total body fat. A person is considered obese when his or her Body Mass Index (BMI) is equal to or greater than 30.
3. Is any fat healthy?
A certain amount of fat in the diet is good and necessary to be healthy. However, nutrition experts agree that most Americans should eat less fat than they currently do. When you do eat fat, make sure it is primarily unsaturated fat, such as fat that comes from nuts, grains, and vegetable sources like olive oil.
4. What steps should I take to lose weight?
  1. Decide you want to permanently lose weight.
  2. Educate yourself.
  3. Have a realistic weight loss goal in mind.
  4. Formulate a structured weight loss plan with your doctor and receive proper follow-up.
5. What type of exercise is best?
It does not matter what type of physical activity you perform -- sports, planned exercise, household chores, yard work, or work-related tasks -- all are beneficial.
Over the past few years, exercise advertisements have targeted simplified exercise routines for weight reduction and maintenance. Some exercise advertisements sell the belief that one machine will work your entire body and give you the results you need. However, many of these machines may only be good for one type of conditioning, such as cardiovascular. These machines also have limitations to the type of exercise you can do and they are not appropriate for everyone. To determine the best type of exercise program for you, talk to your doctor and a certified athletic trainer.

6. How much exercise should I do?
Studies show that even the most inactive people can gain significant health benefits if they accumulate just 30 minutes or more of physical activity per day.
For the greatest overall health benefits, experts suggest 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise on most (and preferably all) days of the week. Doing aerobic activity for most of the days and strength (anaerobic) training two to three days of the week is recommended for best results.
If you have been inactive for a while, you may want to start with less strenuous activities such as walking or swimming at a comfortable pace. Beginning at a slow pace will allow you to become physically fit without straining your body. Once you are in better shape, you can gradually do more strenuous activity.

10. How can I prevent regaining lost weight?
Keep the following tips in mind when losing weight:
  • Set realistic weight loss goals, such as 1 to 2 pounds per week. Those who lose weight slowly, by eating less and exercising more, tend to keep their lost weight off.
  • Eat fewer calories by cutting down on portions and/or decreasing the total amount of fat you eat to 30% or less of your total daily calories.
  • Do not skip meals.
  • Keep healthy snacks on hand, such as raw vegetables with low calorie dips, or fruit. Keep in mind it is the total amount of calories consumed that impacts the rate of weight loss. Fat-free foods may not be eaten as desired, as they are not calorie free.
  • Choose foods high in fiber such as fruits and vegetables with moderate portions of  whole-grain breads, cereals, and  rice. These foods will give you more chewing satisfaction while the higher fiber content may make you feel fuller on fewer calories.
  • To ensure you are eating healthy, keep an accurate food journal. Write down everything you eat or drink. Be honest and accurate, otherwise the journal is not as helpful. The food journal will help you learn about your eating habits and help you assess the food choices you are making.
  • Eat a variety of colorful foods to get all the nutrients you need.
