A video overview of the Phazzer Scorpion at The Las Vegas Sportsman’s Expo 3-3-13.

While at the Las Vegas Sportsman’s expo, I had the opportunity to meet John Smith with Phazzer. They are:

PhaZZer® Electronics, Inc. manufactures and distributes Conductive Energy Weapons (CEWs), High Voltage Multi-Function Drive Stun Devices, and Mini-DVR Recording Devices. PhaZZer Conductive Energy Weapons (CEWs) are an industry standard in Global Government Law Enforcement Agencies, Military Divisions, and Operator End Users.

PhaZZer® Enforcer and Dragon CEWs are similar in effectiveness to the Taser X26®, Taser M26®, and Taser M18®, Electronic Control Devices (ECDs). PhaZZer® Ammunition is compatible with all Taser X26®, Taser M26® & Taser M18® ECDs. PhaZZer offers six variations of ammunition cartridges including: Dart Pro 15 foot; Dart Pro 21 foot; PepperBall® 30 foot; Rubber Bullet 30 foot; Paint Ball Mark 30 foot; Multi-Target Pepper Powder 8 foot and Training Cartridge 21 foot.

PhaZZer CEWs use replaceable cartridges containing compressed nitrogen to deploy two small dart probes attached to insulated conductive wires that extend from 15 feet for civilians (4.5 meter) and up to 21 feet (6.4 meter) for LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY. High voltage carries low amperage through the wires into the dart probes. The pulsed electro shock can penetrate up to two cumulative inches of clothing, giving you a safe, convenient, and effective self-defense weapon you can carry with confidence as a less lethal option. The charge transmits between the two probes into the body, interrupting sensory and motor functions to inhibit muscular control. This Neural Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) effect continues in 5 second cycles. Each time you pull the trigger, the cycle begins again, ultimately shutting down after the third trigger application. This new safety feature complies with numerous medical studies from the American Academy of Emergency Medicine advising physicians to consider additional treatment for individuals experiencing a CEW application of 15 seconds or more.

PhaZZer established a CEW Training Facility in Fort Myers, Florida, with the goal of ensuring our end user operators are thoroughly trained according to standard suggested usage. The Operator’s Training Program has been developed in order to instruct the user on proper CEW deployment. Our program features CEW characteristics, capabilities, operational safety principles and procedures. We also provide an Operator’s Training and Certification Manual that covers important information such as health effects, precautions, and equipment maintenance.

Phazzer Brand products are not only on the cutting edge, but are also made of only the highest quality components. Not only have we built in (mA) milli amperes into all our stun products for superior takedown capability, but also top quality Grade A Batteries for better performance. Our handheld stun guns all share an upgraded Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery which provides a substantial advantage over our competitors still using the Nickel Cadmium systems. Our Dragon air stun gun is fitted with a Grade A, Lithium Ion Battery which is the best money can buy. Our Phazzer Dragon out lasts even our toughest competitors.

Each product comes with the ability to be re-charged in the comfort of your own home. We also utilize “circuit disconnect ripcord technology” in most of our products as a STANDARD safety feature. This feature allows added peace of mind knowing that if your Phazzer product is ever taken from you in the event of an attack by an assailant, the unit is deactivated and rendered useless. These are just a few of the reasons Phazzer is the name being sought after by more people each day. Because we know our products are developed with the highest quality components we offer a full one year warranty. If any of our products fail to fulfill your expectations we will replace it with a brand new unit no questions asked.

Myths And Misnomers Of Aspergers Characteristics – A Light Hearted Observation by Mari Nosal

aspergers
aspergers by Mari Nosal

I am Asperger’s, a brainiac, at times clueless at others. I am hyper aware of many things, do not notice some of the basics. I get it. My 3 kids are on the autism spectrum as well. I can totally relate. I have been trying for over a year to find supporters, donors, and sponsors to help us to help people with autism. We need help with technology, music like instruments, and the arts-tickets, art supplies to help people on the spectrum.

Here is a quirky but cool article by Mari Nosal an autism expert and educator:

Recognition and identification of Aspergers syndrome has skyrocketed in the last decade. Unfortunately, the way it is portrayed through the media venue has provided individuals who do not interact with families or children directly involved with a stigmatized lenses of the syndrome. ie Sheldon Cooper on the Big Bang Theory void of the ability to display emotion, Gregory House of the House series who expresses a diagnosis to a patient with apparent disregard to their feelings, Jerry the Lawyer of Boston Legal who allegedly had Aspergers and was portrayed with comorbid maladies such as grabbing his thighs standing on tippy toes and running away making odd noises.

In my opinion these television characters provide a disgraceful impression to society in regards to Aspergers. Successful Aspergians who work beside you and your peers. Aspergians who are parents, doctors, lawyers, scientists, teachers, students and more.

I wish to present a portrayal of some misnomers regarding Aspergers . I will draw from personal experience that I have acquired both as an educator and interactions with family members on the spectrum from both a serious and humorous perspective. These are merely my personal observations.

1) Individuals with Aspergers are incapable of lying:

This is a mistaken perception due to their penchant for bluntness. i.e. If a teacher wants to know who misbehaved in class the child with Aspergers would be ones best source of information. Bluntness is not the same as lying however. Like any other child, children with Aspergers may stretch the truth to avoid trouble.

If Aspergians can’t lie, than our family was not informed of this fact. I recall picking up my son at preschool. He was four years of age. He had been displaying behavioral issues such as sticking his fingers in his ears and closing his eyes when the teacher gave him directions. He would respond by saying, “I can’t hear you or see you, LALA,LA.”

I used a candy bar as positive reinforcement. This was a treat because candy was not freely available at home. When I picked him up from preschool, I would immediately ask how he behaved for the teacher. If the report was good, he received a candy bar.

I recall picking him up from preschool and asking how his day had gone. His eyes darted from me to his teacher. He replied with a quick, “Mom come on out in the parking lot and I will let you know how I behaved. “I foiled his intent to give me a good report when we were out of his teacher’s earshot.

I responded by telling him that I would ask his teacher directly about his behavior before leaving the classroom. My son disappeared. I heard the bathroom door slam shut in his classroom. He had evidently run in there to hide.

I would consider this an example of the capability an Aspergian has to strategize and to lie with the intent of reaping the reward of a coveted candy bar. My sons plan was foiled by my intervention. However I will add that my son’s actions were within the norm for any child seeking to avoid losing a reward. Heck what adult for that matter has never done something similar such as calling into work feigning an illness to take a day off from work:-0) (cough,cough)

2) Individuals with Aspergers cannot display empathy

I would argue this assumption. Many have difficulty verbalizing emotions hence societies perception of lack of emotion. On the contraire, Aspergians get emotional overload resultant from struggles with compartmentalization of sensory intake. I merely have to look back on the gift my son made at age six for me to confirm his capability to empathize. I had the flu and was bed bound. I woke to queries of “mom are you sleeping”? Well son I am awake now son:-0

There at my bedside stood my son. In his hand, he proudly displayed a paper plate dripping with a rainbow of food color. I will refrain from describing the state that my kitchen was in resultant from my son’s work of art. You can use your imagination to conjure up what a rainbow of food coloring spattering’s did to my house:-0)

Was this a verbal expression of emotions? No it was not. As an Aspergian, he has difficulty with naming his emotions. My son had displayed his concern and yes, empathy for me through his actions instead of words. Expressions of concern were done in his unique way via actions versus words.. It was empathy none the less.

We won’t broach my emotional state when my flu ridden body saw my rainbow colored kitchen:-0)

3) Individuals with Aspergers are not capable of manipulating their environment

I will elaborate and confirm their skill – set with an experience had during homework time in my school age class. I was tutoring a nine year old with Aspergers. Everything was going well during math homework which was compiled of rote facts. He was always compliant when homework required the use of his wonderful rote memory.

We moved on to reading passages. I was attempting to assist the child in answering questions regarding the passage he had read. He was expected to summarize the passage which required processing skills. Rote work being his forte, his demeanor quickly changed. He attempted to stonewall. I persisted. The child looked up at the clock and said, “You know Miss Mari, my mother will be picking me up very soon”. I was silently amused at his comment. What he was stating in a diplomatic manner and silently thinking was, Miss Mari, get off my back will you please? I would surmise that this showcased his capability, and attempt to manipulate his environment.

Recently my son was attempting to draw me in to one of his discussions that resemble a verbal dissertation. These verbal tugs of war always occur when we are discussing a topic that he finds distasteful such as chore requests, manners, behavior, etc. I have realized that his verbal tug of wars is the direct result of his intent to draw me off the topic at hand. My response of choice is to tell him that the discussion is over and walk away. We must pick our battles carefully to reduce what I call the deaf ear syndrome. If the discussion is going in loops walk away. No audience takes the fun out of it.

During the conversation I told my son that I would not be roped into his verbal dissertation. His response was, “you just did Mom. You answered me back”. One can see the manipulative power struggle that is evident here. I ignored my sons comment. His goal was to veer me away from the topic at hand. I continued on my way and held my ground. To continue our debate with have proved futile as we would have gone around in circles repeatedly. I attempt not to get drawn in to a rousing game of lets have a debate until mom forgets what she wanted me to do in the first place. I merely walk away and hold my ground.

4) Individuals with Aspergers have no sense of humor

This belief stems from the fact that Aspergians tend to perceive statements from a literal perspective. Dual meanings or ideas in jokes are difficult to comprehend. I worked with a I was a one on one teacher with a ninth grade girl with Aspergers. I recall excitedly telling the teenage girl that she was on fire because she had comprehended an important concept we had worked on for an extended period of time. The young lady responded with stiffened limbs. She repeatedly demanded to know why I had said she was on fire. She kept saying “I am not on fire, I am not on fire, why do you say I am?”

Aspergians most certainly do have a sense of humor. One would merely have to observe the night I came home from a nine hour shift in a group home. I was extremely tired and fumbled for my keys in the dark night. Suddenly, a figure jumped out of the bush saying Boo I am Mari. I must have jumped 20 feet. My son had apparently downloaded a photo of me, cut a mask out of cardboard, and glued my picture on the front complete with eye holes. Hence, the reason he called it a Mari mask. Upon entering the house my other son was wearing one as well. This was definitely an example of my son’s ability to create a humorous experience.

In closing I would like to convey the fact that individuals with Aspergers present with the same range of emotions as neurotypicals, they merely convey those characteristics that every human being possesses in a way that works for them.

Perhaps we could all start looking at how we are similar versus how we are different. Accept each others differences and harness them to create a more copasetic and positive society. No two Aspergians are alike anymore than two neurotypicals. Like Baskin Robbins ice-cream, humans come in 32 flavors. Embrace that individuality, forget the them and us ideology and replace it with a WE will get more accomplished than a ME. I will leave you with this question and provide an answer to ponder.

Question: Who is more important, the Physician or Trash Man.

Answer: They are both equally as important. Without a physician we could not TREAT disease and we would perish. Without trash men we would HAVE disease and become ill.

This is just a thought to ponder regarding differently abled individuals and society at large.
