Coping with Crisis
In the first half, occult historian Mitch Horowitz
(https://mitchhorowitz.com/) discussed how to remain focused, positive, and effective during the world crisis and pandemic. As we face the coronavirus situation, we have to be careful not to give in to panic, he cautioned, as this is something that can create a “psychological pandemic” of its own. By hoarding or overbuying groceries and supplies, we may be taking away items from people in need, and sending the wrong lessons to our kids, he remarked. We should be practicing solidarity with our neighbors, and grace under pressure, he continued, as well as showing gratitude for those who are assisting others and keeping things running.
Shopper wheeled out on stretcher after fight at metro Atlanta Sam’s Club
A fight at a metro Atlanta Sam’s Club on Thursday evening that triggered a multiagency police response is also the subject of a viral video circulating on social media.
According to Paulding County authorities, sheriff’s deputies and Hiram police officers responded to a fight call at the warehouse store on Jimmy Lee Smith Parkway about 7:30 p.m. after at least one customer was injured.
A cellphone video taken inside the store appears to show several people tussling on the floor of the wine aisle as an employee in a green vest tries to break them apart. Some kind of liquid is spilled on the floor.

Onlookers gather as the scene grows chaotic, and many can be heard screaming and voicing their disbelief.
In another video, a man is shown being wheeled out of the store on a stretcher while a deputy asks shoppers to move out of the way.
The videos have since been shared on Twitter via Everything Georgia, an aggregated news and original video sharing account with more than 1.5 million followers.
Investigators believe the fight started when two customers bumped shopping carts, Hiram police spokesman Sgt. Edwin Ivey told AJC.com. It “eventually escalated into them hitting one another with wine bottles,” he said in an email.
