Though it seems there is nothing to lose by evacuating a school and being safe, there are significant costs associated with the growing number of school closures. In fact, the price tag can be staggering…

Stats

Bomb Threats in Schools Guide No. 32 (2005) by Graeme R. Newman popcenter.asu.edu
“..The FBI reports that close to 5 percent of bombing incidents in the United States in 1999 (the most recent year for which FBI data are available) were targeted at schools. It is unknown what portion of these incidents involved threats. For the period January 1990 to February 28, 2002 the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) recorded 1,055 incidents of bombs being placed in school premises.1 Again, we do not know what proportion of these incidents involved threats. For the most part, however, it is probably reasonable to conclude that bomb incidents involving real bombs in schools are relatively rare, though they have been with us for quite some time. Furthermore, relatively few bomb explosions are preceded by a warning or threat to officials. Of the 1,055 bomb incidents in schools reported by ATF, only 14 were accompanied by a warning to school or other authorities…

The first known school bombing occurred in May 1927 in Bath, Michigan. A local farmer blew up the school, killing 38 pupils, six adults and seriously injuring 40 other students ( Missouri Center for Safe Schools 2001).[Full text ]

There are no national statistics on bomb threats as such, though they are more common than bomb incidents. However, we can say that they are not evenly distributed throughout school districts: rashes of bomb threats can occur in particular localities.2 For example, in the 1997-8 school year, one Maryland school district reported 150 bomb threats and 55 associated arrests.3 The South Carolina Department of Education in its 1999-2000 school incident crime report lists disturbing schools, which includes bomb threats, hoaxes, false fire alarms etc., among its 10 top crimes, second only to simple assaults.4 During the past five years, many states have enacted severe penalties for issuing false bomb threats, which reflects the perception that the incidence of bomb threats is widespread.

he potential for serious injury and damage makes even an empty threat a very serious incident. Thus, even though some 90 percent of bomb threats in schools may turn out to be pranks, each threat must be taken seriously and acted upon immediately. Evacuation of buildings causes major disruption, which in many cases may be an attractive outcome from the offenders point of view. Many school districts report losses in excess of $250,000 because of school closings and costs of bomb search squads. School districts are increasingly requiring schools to make up days lost due to bomb threats.5…

According to Reddy et al. (2001) the three major television networks: ABC, CBS, and NBC, aired a total of 296 stories on the shooting at Columbine High School in Jefferson County, Coloradoin contrast, lightning accounts for more deaths overall, and bathtub accidents account for more deaths of children, than do school shootings yet, they receive comparatively little media coverage.

..

About Bomb Threats

Motives: There are many supposed motives for bomb threats, among them: humor, self assertion, anger, manipulation, aggression, hate and devaluation, omnipotence, fantasy, psychotic distortion, ideology, retaliation and no doubt there are many more.6 However, the research on motives is generally limited to other kinds of violence, so any imputation of motives to those who deliver bomb threats must remain speculative….”

Hundreds arrested for deliberately starting catastrophic Australian bushfires

“…CANBERRA, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) — Hundreds of Australians have been arrested for allegedly deliberately lighting Australian bushfires in only a matter of months.

Australia is currently enduring one of the worst bushfire crises in the nation’s history, with at least 25 people having been killed since September.

The Australian reported on Tuesday that 183 people have been arrested for lighting bushfires in New South Wales (NSW), Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

In NSW alone 183 people have been charged or cautioned for bushfire-related offences since November, with 24 arrested for deliberately starting bushfires. While in Victoria 43 were charged in 2019…

In Queensland, where the fires were worst in November, 101 people have been arrested for deliberately starting fires, almost 70 percent of whom were juveniles.

According to James Ogloff, the director of the Forensic Behavioural Science at Swinburne University, approximately 50 percent of Australia’s bushfires are started by arsonists.

I lost my home to bushfire. Thoughts and prayers are not enough
The Conversation By Janet Stanley
Updated 12 Nov 2019, 7:00am abc.net.au
“..I lost my home in Victoria’s 1983 Macedon bushfires. I know sympathy and financial assistance for those in the midst of the crisis is important. However, when political leaders such as Prime Minister Scott Morrison offer their “thoughts and prayers”, it’s hard to read this as anything but disingenuous.

Scientists and meteorologists have for years warned of more frequent and extreme bushfires as climate change worsens. Their messages have been met by policy inertia. Nationals leader Michael McCormack on Monday went so far as to dismiss those who link bushfires to global warming as “raving inner-city lunatics”…

The World Meteorological Organisation said in February that the four years to 2018 were the hottest on record, in a clear sign of climate change “associated with record atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases”.

Bushfires are not directly attributable to climate change. However, the fast-warming climate is making bushfires more frequent and intense…

In Australia, weekly bushfire frequencies increased by 40 per cent in the five years to 2016, particularly during summer months, suggesting a serious climatic shift.

The northern hemisphere is also suffering. Research released earlier this year found that California’s annual wildfire extent had increased fivefold since the 1970s. This was very likely driven by drying forest fuels under human‐induced warming.

The mountain of irrefutable evidence linking global warming to bushfires makes the Federal Government’s failure to act — or even talk about the problem — extremely hard to explain. Of course, worsening bushfires are not the only signal that climate change has arrived…

Praying

A call to prayer for those affected by bushfires
ETERNITY NEWS STAFF WRITERS | NOVEMBER 12TH, 2019 09:27 AM | Comment Icon eternitynews.com.au
“…Simon Hansford, moderator of the Uniting Church in NSW and ACT shared this prayer:

God of life and death,
our prayers today are where our hearts and minds
have been during these last days
and where they have been drawn so early in this season;
with those communities and individuals
whose lives have been damaged
in differing ways by the bushfires…

Pray for Australia || Pray for Rain

Fight Fires With Prayer blog.canberradeclaration.org.au
“..One miracle that has gained national attention took place in eastern Victoria. On New Year’s Eve, 4,000 people were evacuated from the township of Mallacoota to the beach and lakeside. David, a local bed-and-breakfast owner, told this story to ABC radio:

“I was praying. I was an atheist. I was praying to God, praying to Jesus, turn the wind. You wouldn’t believe it—but I’m going to tell you the honest-to-God truth. It pushed this thing back against itself.

“Literally we felt the wind come from off the beach, it shouldn’t have, but it did, but it went back at it. I don’t care if anyone else doesn’t recognise it. It was unbelievable… I believe [it was] God’s intervention, absolutely, through prayer…”..”

Rain brings relief to scorched parts of Australia

“Milder temperatures on Sunday brought some relief to areas of Australia affected by wildfires. But that’s only temporary, with the Prime Minister Scott Morrison warning that there was still “months to go” until the end of bushfire season. The number of those killed by wild-fires increased to 24, in the town of Batlow a 47-year old man died while defending the home of a friend..”

Impeachment: How to remove a sitting U.S. president from office

Current Fiasco

Trump impeached by the House for abuse of power, obstruction of Congress Dec. 18, 2019, 7:26 PM CST / Updated Dec. 18, 2019, 9:07 PM CST
By Dareh Gregorian nbcnews.com
The votes set the stage for a trial of the president in the Senate, due to begin in early January
“For the third time in the nation’s history, the House of Representatives voted to impeach a sitting president, following a daylong debate on whether Trump violated his oath in pressuring Ukraine to damage a political opponent.

Trump was impeached on two articles. The first vote, 230-197, was to impeach him for abuse of power and was almost entirely on party lines; it was followed quickly by a second 229-198 vote that the president obstructed Congress. The one-vote difference was Democrat Rep. Jared Golden of Maine, who voted yes on abuse of power and no on obstruction of Congress

..
Democrats accused their counterparts of turning a willful blind eye to the president’s misdeeds. They said there was ample evidence Trump had abused his power by pressuring Ukraine to announce investigations into political rival Joe Biden and his son, while withholding almost $400 million in aid, and had obstructed Congress by refusing to release any documents related to his actions.

“The president withheld congressionally approved military aid to Ukraine, a country under siege, not to fight corruption, but to extract a personal political favor,” said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass. “The president of the United States endangered our national security. The president undermined our democracy … betrayed his oath to preserve protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”


“When Jesus was falsely accused of treason, Pontius Pilate gave Jesus the opportunity to face his accusers,” Loudermilk said on the House floor. “During that sham trial, Pontius Pilate afforded more rights to Jesus than Democrats have afforded this president in this process.”

“..His basic argument was that Democrats should try to articulate why people are upset and voted for Trump and speak to those concerns with a positive message; Yang says Trump voters don’t trust the media, especially since the media missed Trump’s chances to win in 2016. They’re upset by lost manufacturing jobs. According to Yang, Democratic candidates need to craft a positive message and start focusing on the issues that got Trump elected, not impeachment…”

Raised in poverty, uneducated, a working class figure whose political ethos was “my way or the highway,” Andrew Johnson’s surprising rise to the Oval Office upon Abraham Lincoln’s assassination was followed by a torturous relationship with Congress and the first impeachment of a U.S. president. Mo Rocca looks back at the life of the Southern Democrat who was one of America’s most unfortunate chief executives.

James Buchanan, the 15th President of the United States (1857-1861), served immediately prior to the American Civil War. He remains the only President to be elected from Pennsylvania and to remain a lifelong bachelor. whitehouse.gov
“..Presiding over a rapidly dividing Nation, Buchanan grasped inadequately the political realities of the time. Relying on constitutional doctrines to close the widening rift over slavery, he failed to understand that the North would not accept constitutional arguments which favored the South. Nor could he realize how sectionalism had realigned political parties: the Democrats split; the Whigs were destroyed, giving rise to the Republicans…”

“..“Breakthrough, which is based on Joyce Smith’s 2017 book “The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection” (co-written with the Christian author and media personality Ginger Kolbaba), presents itself as the true story of a modern miracle.

Dead for Over an Hour, Son Comes Back to Life cbn.com
“..“He’s been dead for 45 minutes.” These words met Joyce as she saw her son. On Monday, January 19, 2015, 14-year-old John Smith had spent the night with two friends,- Josh Rieger & Josh Sander – after winning a close basketball game the night before. John scored the winning shot. Joyce had spoken to John and was prepared to go pick him up when she got a chilling phone call minutes later from friend Cindy saying, “There’s been an accident.” John had fallen through the ice on Lake Saint Louise. First responders had pulled him out but “he didn’t have a heartbeat.” Stunned, after calling husband Brian & her sister, Joyce raced to the hospital praying all the way. Joyce burst into the ER as doctors feverishly worked to bring life back to John’s lifeless body. Sensing little hope, Dr. Stutterer finally told her, “You can go up and talk to your son.” “In that moment I knew I had to get desperate with my Lord. I had to get a hold of God and get a hold of him fast,” she says. Remembering a Beth Moore Bible study, she knew that the Holy Spirit had raised Christ Jesus from the dead. That same power was available to us. “All of a sudden, everyone and everything in that room faded away and it was just me and John and God. With a voice I thought was quiet, but that actually bellowed through the room, down the hallway, …. I declared, ‘I believe in a God who can do miracles! Holy Spirit, I need you right now to come and breathe life back into my son!” She closed her eyes and wept, and at that instant, she heard the sound of a miracle. John’s heart monitor sprang back to life. John’s recovery was slow but sure. Doctors expected and wanted to prepare the family that massive brain damage would affect him, but every test showed remarkable healing. His recovery defied every medical & scientific expectation, and 16 days later he walked out of the hospital under his own power, completely healed.

POWER OF PRAYER
Joyce knows that prayer really does work. As John lay in the hospital she marveled at how the Lord had brought John into her and Brian’s life unexpectedly when most parents were entering the empty nest stage. Looking back she remembered that at 17 years old she fell in love with a man six years older and a divorced father of two. Headstrong, she didn’t listen to her parents and became pregnant after high-school graduation. She was happy until Charlie told her to get rid of it. She hid her pregnancy, wearing baggy clothes, etc, and turned down a music scholarship for college thinking she would get married. Charlie never changed so she agreed to give the baby up for adoption. She never told her parents. He took her to a hospital where the doctor induced labor. “I gave birth to a baby boy with a round, chubby face, huge blue eyes, and a light covering of blond hair on his head,” she says. She adored him. On the third day she awoke and her baby boy was gone, taken away. “I begged for death to take me, as I sobbed into my pillow,” Joyce says. It was four days later her stunned parents found out she had given birth and had not told them. She did stay with Charlie and a subsequent pregnancy lead them to marry. During the hard years of this marriage Joyce turned to God again in her life. He answered her prayer and she didn’t miscarry her son Tom. She went back to church but eventually divorced Charlie.

A single mom with two boys, she met Brian who loved her boys and they married. Brian, a videographer, had a heart for missions and went on several trips . His heart for the children lead them to seek to adopt a child. In February 2000 they adopted a little five-and-a-half-month old baby boy from Guatemala they named John when she was 49 & Brian 46 years old! So much joy! Strangely Joyce never told Brian about giving up her first son for adoption. Never sure how he would take it. But one day when John was three years old, as she did devotions God spoke to her heart – I want you to find your son. She went to the computer. Miraculously, He led her step-by-step and within 10 days she had found and spoke with her son. Less than two weeks later she says, “I met my sweet son Joe for the second time in my life. And he was everything I hoped and prayed he would be.” Brian had proved to be so welcoming in hearing of her oldest son.

TOTAL RESTORATION
Joyce continues to marvel at the goodness and grace of God. He totally restored her oldest son and family to her. John is doing remarkably well, is totally restored, a good student with a 3.5 gpa and is very articulate. If we have just a little bit of faith, He will do wonders. She says it could be that God healed John over two weeks so that man would exhaust all his efforts. God restores hope. People want to see a God who cares and is above all things. She thanks God for the role of adoption in her life, restoring Joe to her and bringing them John. He cares for the hopeless and the lost, and adopts us into His family. Joyce just wants people to know that God does the impossible, she says. Their story is slated to be made into a movie by Devon Franklin and 20th Century Fox.

BREAKTHROUGH Interview: DeVon Franklin

Stephen Curry to Executive Produce Faith-Based Drama ‘Breakthrough’ (Exclusive) (Exclusive)
11:42 AM PDT 10/18/2018 by Borys Kit , Scott Feinberg hollywoodreporter.com
The move, which was finalized several months ago, is one of the first for Curry’s burgeoning media career and one of the first to be revealed since the Golden State Warrior point guard officially launched his banner, Unanimous Media, earlier this year.

“..NBA superstar Stephen Curry has quietly come aboard Breakthrough, a faith-based drama from Fox 2000, as an executive producer, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The move, which was finalized several months ago, is one of the first for Curry’s burgeoning media career and one of the first to be revealed since the Golden State Warriors point guard officially launched his banner, Unanimous Media, earlier this year.

Unanimous, which has an overall film and TV deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment, is developing many of its own projects, but Curry couldn’t pass up getting involved with Breakthrough since it dovetailed with his own focus on faith and family-friendly material.

Based on a book by Joyce Smith titled The Impossible, Breakthrough tells the true story of how Joyce’s son, John Smith, fell through the ice and drowned, and was declared legally dead. A hour later, however, the basketball-loving 14-year-old was miraculously revived through the power of prayer…”

“Breakthrough” tells the true story of one of the most miraculous recoveries ever. John Smith was just 14 years old when he fell through an icy Missouri lake in 2015. After being rescued from the frigid waters, John was rushed to a local hospital, where, with no pulse for nearly 45 minutes, he was declared dead. But then something remarkable happened: He woke up. The incredible tale is being retold, Hollywood-style, in “Breakthrough,” starring Chrissy Metz and Josh Lucas.

Interesting Facts behind the Story

Physics of “The Current War”: Edison, Westinghouse & Tesla (AC vs. DC)

Thomas Edison Did Everything He Could To Stop Nikola Tesla Succeeding | Tesla’s Death Ray

Electric Chair

Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and the Invention of the Electric Chair (2002)

First execution by electric chair. William Kemmler, the first executed in the electric chair


In 1889, New York’s Electrical Execution Law, the first of its kind in the world, went into effect, and Edwin R. Davis, the Auburn Prison electrician, was commissioned to design an electric chair. Closely resembling the modern device, Davis’ chair was fitted with two electrodes, which were composed of metal disks held together with rubber and covered with a damp sponge. The electrodes were to be applied to the criminal’s head and back.

On August 6, 1890, William Kemmler became the first person to be sent to the chair. After he was strapped in, a charge of approximately 700 volts was delivered for only 17 seconds before the current failed. Although witnesses reported smelling burnt clothing and charred flesh, Kemmler was far from dead, and a second shock was prepared. The second charge was 1,030 volts and applied for about two minutes, whereupon smoke was observed coming from the head of Kemmler, who was clearly deceased. An autopsy showed that the electrode attached to his back had burned through to the spine.

Dr. Southwick applauded Kemmler’s execution with the declaration, “We live in a higher civilization from this day on,” while American inventor George Westinghouse, an innovator of the use of electricity, remarked, “They would have done better with an axe.”..”

THOMAS EDISON

JP MORGAN

J.P. Morgan – Biography and Life Story – 360p

British Secret Service Agent J. P. Morgan reformation.org
J.P. Morgan tried to keep the entire world in the DARK by sabotaging Tesla’s AC current!!
“…Morgan fought a ferocious war against AC current!!

Today, 3 phase alternating current electrifies the entire world. What most people don’t know is that J. P. Morgan and his crony Thomas Edison fought a ferocious battle against alternating current. It is called the War of the Currents, and lasted from 1885 to 1912…

Edison was clueless about the great benefits of AC.

In 1884, a young Serb immigrant named Nikola Tesla introduced him to his AC motor.

Edison and his boss Morgan completely rejected this revolutionary invention…

Tesla worked for many months and finally the problem was solved. Did Edison keep his promise and pay him for all his hard work?. . . absolutely not….Tesla quit the Edison Company in disgust:

For a paltry few thousand dollars they lost not only a man who would have saved them many times that amount each year, but they also lost an opportunity to obtain world control of the greatest and most profitable electrical invention ever made. (O’ Neill, Prodigal Genius, p. 58).
After quitting the Edison Company, Tesla had to work as a manual laborer for a year digging the streets of New York. This was the worst time in his life as a poor stranger in a strange land….He was befriended by the foreman of the work gang who persuaded him to form his own company.


The first application of current was botched and Kemmler did not die until the current was fired up a second time. When he was dead, the Morgan owned newspapers (New York Times) said that he had been “Westinghoused.”

Thank God that this desperate, deadly gambit by Morgan and Edison failed to turn people away from AC and eventually AC triumphed over DC and became the standard universal current…

J. P. Morgan owned the Titanic!!

Colonel John Jacob Astor IV was a close friend and financier of Tesla. Tesla lived at his hotel, the Waldorf Astoria, in New York City.

Tesla’s wireless transmission of electricity offered free electricity to the entire world. That was just too much for Morgan and the Bank of England. They wanted to control all forms of energy around the world.

..
Only months after Morgan’s death, the corrupt 3rd Bank of the “United States” was chartered; and in 1917 the United States was lured into war in Europe by MI6.

WESTINGHOUSE

WESTINGHOUSE (Full Documentary) | The Powerhouse Struggle of Patents & Business with Nikola Tesla

Life in Wilmerding
The Ideal Home Town

(From The Wilmerding News, September 2, 1904)loc.gov
‘..The first named is composed almost entirely of the more enlightened and prominent men employed by the great Westinghouse plant which forms the sole industrial basis of the place. Electricians, engineers, clerks, surveyors, heads of departments and mechanics are found in the ranks of this organization, a delightful fellowship pervading the whole. Many of the members are college graduates, coming from such standard schools as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Yale, Harvard or University of Chicago. The features described, however, do not constitute the sole basis for the superiority of Wilmerding as an attractive residence quarter and as a town in general. The streets are excellently paved and kept as clean as can be and the business buildings erected of late bear the stamp of beauty as well as being perfectly adapted to their uses. The residence streets, particularly Marguerite Avenue, are beautiful with well kept shade trees and lawns and are lined with handsome, substantial houses. There are many artistic front yards in Wilmerding, thanks to the broad minded policy of the Westinghouse interests in offering annual prizes for the best examples of this kind. The company sets a signal example itself in the beautifying of the spacious grounds around the big office building. There are rows of magnificent plants of all kinds and beds of beautiful collas, all maintained in faultless condition by expert gardeners…”

NIKOLA TESLA

Nikola Tesla Biography

Nikola Tesla’s Religion and Political Views | HollowverseThe … hollowverse.com
“…Tesla was raised a Serbian Orthodox. His family was likely quite devout as his father was a priest in the church.1

As an adult, Tesla developed a nuanced view of religion and mankind’s place in the universe. You could say his personal philosophy was closer to Buddhist with its orientation toward unity and oneness. He often said things like:..

Tesla never fully bucked his Christian indoctrination and at the very least, he acknowledged it, saying:

The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power. My Mother had taught me to seek all truth in the Bible; therefore I devoted the next few months to the study of this work.5..”

Witchcraft in the Philippines: as millennials fall under the spell, businesses are catching on Alixandra Vila

Published: 7:45am, 30 Jan, 2019 scmp.com
The rise of liberal millennials in the Philippines has brought witchcraft and the mystical forces of nature from the fringes into the mainstream
Businesses are joining in, with themed restaurants, occult bars, and beers celebrating the country’s mythological creatures
‘..Numerous records indicate that in pre-colonial Philippines, Filipinos worshipped Bathala, the Tagalog supreme deity who created the universe. They believed in engkantos, the spirits of ancestors or guardians of nature who are said to have the ability to appear in human form. Communities were dominated by babaylans (shamans) and mananambals (witches) that practise sacred rituals and magic.
..



“I go to different parts of the country to seek ingredients,” Demetrio says. “I go to the mountains, the jungle, talk to local people, including witch doctors who are known to have knowledge about rare ingredients found only in our land. It is through them that I learned to respect all that nature provides. I was inspired by them to transform these ingredients into something that would be enjoyed by whoever comes here.”

LMFAO. Just to clarify, that guy was an albularyo (from spanish herbolario, “herbalist”). They’re not really the ones who gave Siquijor its reputation. Honestly most of it is just sleight of hand. Don’t feel bad at laughing.

The original “witches” of Siquijor were actually shamans, called babaylan, who escaped Spanish prosecution. And they were almost always women or homosexual men. As shamans, they were the religious leaders of the villages. They didn’t need theatrics and magic tricks. Their main job was interceding. Talking to the spirit world for advice or healing or cursing enemies. Hence why it’s mostly women and gay men because they were believed to have female spirits who had a stronger connection to the spirit world (giving birth and all that).

This also meant that when the Spanish arrived and introduced Christianity they were the first to go. They were reduced to being “healers” (usually doing things like therapeutic massage or hilot, setting bones, or midwifery), while Catholic priests took over their religious roles. A few babaylan attempted to lead revolts against the Spanish because of this, but all of them failed. As a result, almost none of the traditions survived. Modern albularyo are a far cry from the babaylan.

“..(Kurdish: کورد‎, Kurd) are an Iranian ethnic group native to a mountainous region of Western Asia known as Kurdistan, which spans southeastern Turkey, northwestern Iran, northern Iraq, and northern Syria.[27][28] There are also exclaves of Kurds in central Anatolia and Khorasan. Additionally, there are significant Kurdish diaspora communities in the cities of western Turkey, in particular Istanbul, while a Kurdish diaspora has developed in Western Europe, primarily in Germany. Numerically, the Kurds are estimated to number between 30 and 45 million.[2][29]..”

“ABC has a really good team that does this work,” she wrote via email. “But I assume that on a Sunday, when they were probably stretched for staff, they failed to do the necessary verification checks, and under the pressure that comes with breaking news, this got through.”

How a Somali Refugee Is Creating Community in Minnesota

“People have been fed so many fabricated things that are totally made up — things that are not true. I don’t feel offended about things that are not true,” she said. “I explain why they are not true.”

A 2015 community survey found residents’ trust of Somali people has increased in Central Minnesota: 73% of St. Cloud-area residents said they trusted Somalis, up from 56% of residents in 2010…

However, Ringsmuth says she still believes about one in four residents hold hard-line views opposed to immigrants and refugees. And the “growing rampant Islamophobia” under President Donald Trump, she said, has emboldened those with anti-Muslim views.

What Happens to a Body During Cremation?

Life after death: Americans are embracing new ways to leave their remains October 27, 2017 6.21am EDT theconversation.com
“..Going home
A rising number of families are also interested in so-called “home funerals,” in which the remains are cleaned and prepared for disposition at home by the family, religious community or friends. Home funerals are followed by cremation, or burial in a family cemetery, a traditional cemetery or a green cemetery…

What Does The Bible Say About Cremation? Date: September 11, 2018 By: Cremation Staff memorialcremations.com
The Bible does not specifically say whether cremation is approved or not. But it does give instances where the prophets in the Old Testament where buried versus burning their bodies after death (see Genesis 23:9, Deuteronomy 34:5-6, and Mark 6:29). As cremation or burial by fire was not called out in the Bible, each individual will need to make the decision for themselves based on their own faith, traditions, needs, and wishes.

Burial Benefits – Compensation – Veterans Benefits … benefits.va.gov

‘..Burial Benefits
Effective July 7, 2014: VA is changing its monetary burial benefits regulations to simplify the program and pay eligible survivors more quickly and efficiently. These regulations will authorize VA to pay, without a written application, most eligible surviving spouses basic monetary burial benefits at the maximum amount authorized in law through automated systems rather than reimbursing them for actual costs incurred.

Under the current regulations, VA pays for burial and funeral expenses on a reimbursement basis, which requires survivors to submit receipts for relatively small one-time payments that VA generally pays at the maximum amount permitted by law.
The new burial regulations will permit VA to pay, at a flat rate, burial and plot or interment allowances thereby enabling VA to automate payment of burial benefits to most eligible surviving spouses and more efficiently process other burial benefit claims.
The burial allowance for a non-service-connected death is $300, and $2,000 for a death connected to military service.
Benefit
Service-related Death
VA will pay up to $2,000 toward burial expenses for deaths on or after September 11, 2001, or up to $1,500 for deaths prior to September 11, 2001. If the Veteran is buried in a VA national cemetery, some or all of the cost of transporting the deceased may be reimbursed…”
