  1. Melinda Mills:

    There's been a lot of confusion about where people should wear masks, and where there's confusion, people just disengage and don't wear them, the British government's why( some countries) are moving to a broad, blanket policy.

  2. Read MoreIf McGregor:

    It used to irritate me the way certain narratives are spread and the way words are twisted, I had to just disengage from it, when I came into the game, it used to happen and I'd just laugh it off and play up to it and do my thing. Then it just kept up going on, on, and on. It got a little much and I reacted to disrespect. But no more.

  3. The King:

    For me the most important thing is that I have a hobby for which I need to concentrate completely, you have an aircraft, passengers and crew. You have responsibility for them. You can't take your problems from the ground into the skies. You can completely disengage and concentrate on something else. That, for me, is the most relaxing part of flying.

  4. Robin Simcox:

    Pathways out of extremism are very rarely instantaneous. It can take years for former extremists to fully disengage from this ideology. Expecting someone who was fighting alongside ISIS one day to be a legitimate ally in the fight against Islamist extremism the day after is an unrealistic expectation, the increasingly popular idea that we should not jail terrorists because that would only make them even more radical shows how utterly backwards this entire debate can become. Yes, prison radicalization does exist. However, the answer is to deal with the conditions that create prison radicalization – an inability to isolate charismatic Islamist recruiters, for example – not stop sending those who broke the law to prison.

  5. Addison:

    It is very hard for the mind to disengage itself from a subject on which it has been long employed. The thoughts will be rising of themselves from time to time, though we have given them no encouragement, as the tossings and fluctuations of the sea continue several hours after the winds are laid.
