My friend and I were chatting about genealogy when I mentioned that my one of my ancestors might have belonged to a Satanic cult.Wow, she gushed. Everyone hopes to find an interesting story in their family tree, but you really hit the jackpot!?Well, yes and no. The rumor came from a family interview about an abusive childhood, something no one wants to find in her family's past. But once I heard about the cult, I became determined to learn more. The tools on Ancestry helped me piece together the story. I'm now writing a book-length version of that story, and the ripple effect it's had on four generations of women.Climbing the Gnarled Branches of Your Own Family TreeIn talking with others about my book, I've learned that I'm not alone.

Sharks can play a large role in their ecosystems, no matter their size. Big predatory sharks require a lot of food. So the removal of too many large sharks can have a ripple effect on the populations of their prey: if you remove the sharks, too many prey are able to survive, and those then compete with one another (and other animals) for food, shifting the food web.

The documents, which were provided to The Intercept by a private investigator, are unlikely to overturn the murder convictions they appear to undermine. But they provide a damning window into the collateral costs, still unaccounted for, of the drug war in Detroit during the crack cocaine years. As the drug ravaged inner cities during the 1980s, pushing the nation into a social hysteria, the war to combat it was more than a metaphor; police became frontline soldiers, and the predominately African American ghettoes were their battlegrounds. In Detroit, many drug-related convictions were won on flimsy evidence and brutal tactics, the kinds of methods that lead to wrongful convictions, while leaving collective trauma in their wake. For people like Hill, the effects linger, borne of behind-the-scenes police brutality that left wounds which have not healed.

The economy of movement Pfeiffer builds into his show brings a ripple effect. It heightens tension and makes what movement there is all the more important. Eisen-Martin's rangy, uneasy in his own skin, John seems even more jumpy, while injured Captain DeLeon's screams reverberate. Tension in the room - both on stage and in the theatre - feels strained to a breaking point, so tight the audience can barely breathe - even when there are just three men in makeshift seats debating.
Guild Wars 2 is the fourth major entry in the Guild Wars series, and claims to be unique in the MMO genre by featuring a storyline that is responsive to player actions, something which is common in single player role-playing games but rarely seen in multiplayer ones. A dynamic event system replaces traditional questing, utilising the ripple effect to allow players to approach quests in different ways as part of a persistent world. Also of note is the combat system, which aims to be more dynamic than its predecessor by promoting synergy between professions and using the environment as a weapon, as well as reducing the complexity of the Magic-style skill system of the original game. 2b1af7f3a8
