I saw the show too. I was amazed when they spoke to Jake the boy who had ABA therapy and got cured.
Hi Alex! If you dont mind can I ask you some question. I am a parent and I have a son who is 13 years old with autism.
How did you do in middle school? How old are you? I didn't do the ABA therepy with my son and how i wish I did.. and maybe he would have the same results just like Jake... a cured boy.

I also seen the view's segment and thought it was great for those who dont know what Autism is. It gives it the press it needs.

The problem with aspies getting positive press coverage is that I think is that nobody wants to hear about higher functioning autism because they want to feel sorry for us. They want to put all autistic people in this handicap box of needing around the clock care and supervision. If you don’t fit into that stereotype it’s kind of hard for people to see you as having the condition.
But that’s just my opinion.

Many here say the government point came in September when Mr. Passos Coelho offered a plan to redistribute social security funds by cutting employers’ social security taxes while significantly raising those of employees. Although the measure was meant to lower labor costs, the outcry from workers was so ferocious that he was soon forced to withdraw it. Suddenly, the Portuguese, too, have joined the swelling ranks of Europe’s discontented, following Greece and Spain, after the government tried to take another step up the austerity path last month. For many here, it was one step too far, driving tens of thousands into the streets in the largest protest of Portugal’s crisis. As Pedro Passos Coelho, Portugal’s center-right prime minister, prepares to announce a new budget on Monday — filled with still more steep tax increases and public sector job cuts — he faces the kind of popular backlash that was, until recently, absent from the political and social landscape here. Taking a page from the playbook of their Spanish neighbors, Portuguese protesters are planning to encircle the Parliament building here in the capital for the budget announcement. For their part, Portugal’s powerful trade unions are preparing a general strike for Nov. 14. Arménio Carlos, the leader of the CGTP union, compared Mr. Passos Coelho to Pinocchio, accusing him of constantly changing his austerity message.

Our investigations took us to St Petersburg and the Soviet Submariners Veterans' Society via the National Security Archive in Washington DC, where Svetlana Savranskaya, the director of the Russian archives, told us an incredible story. November 1962 has put our own experiences into perspective - and maybe given rise to a few more grey hairs along the way. There had been a second secret missile crisis that continued the danger of a catastrophic nuclear war until the end of November 1962. This extended the known missile crisis well beyond the weekend of 27-28 October, the time that had always been thought of as the moment the danger finally lifted with the deal between Kennedy and Khrushchev to withdraw the Soviet missiles in exchange for a US promise not to invade Cuba.The secret missile crisis came about through an unnerving mix of Soviet duplicity, American intelligence failures and the mercurial temperament of Fidel Castro. The Cuban leader, cut out of the main negotiations between the superpowers over the fate of the long range Soviet missiles stationed in Cuba, began to cease cooperation with Moscow.
