Adult With Autism

We all hear about autism today, the autism day, information about these conditions shared in the social media, how to integrate people with autism in daily social routines, the different kinds of autism, there is actually pretty much information nowadays to help people with this neurodevelopmental disorder. However, all the information virtually focusses only in children, and there are a lot of adults suffering different conditions inside the autism spectrum that people do not find so easy to interact with as with children.

It seems nobody care about an adult with autism, there is little information, scarce resources and too many challenges adults with autism have to face every single day. For example, public school are compelled to provide service to people with autism until they turn 22, and what happens next? Because the health care system is failing them too, there are simply not enough programs. There should be similar programs in colleges and in big multinational companies.

Depending on the degree of autism, people with this condition may want to stay with their families, but this is also partly because of the lack of resources for them in the adult world, an expensive option for the families that must choose among only a few couple of options.

James Foley Beheading

James Foley beheading was one of the most shocking executions recorded in the modern times. Foley was an American journalist and video reporter. He was one of the freelance correspondents that worked during the Syrian Civil War. In 2011, Gadafi forces captured him and several of his colleagues killing Anton Hammerl, he stated that when he saw him dead, the world as he perceived it totally changed for him, and that it did not matter that they were being kidnapped, in that moment the world stopped, the world was Anton in a pool of blood. He was released from prison 44 days later and returned to Lybia, he was present when Gadaffi was captured.

He was kidnapped in 2012 in Syria, while heading in taxi to the Turkish border along with his translator, John Cantlie who is still being held in captivity. Captors demanded 100 million euros in exchange of the life of Foley. GoboalPost, the company he worked for, stated that they spent millions to bring him back and that included the services of Kroll Inc, an international security company. Obama also unauthorized a complex rescue mission that did not worked. After many torture and mock executions, Foley was beheaded in 2014 and Isis uploaded the video in Youtube.
