A legendary ghost that is said to have lived in the Hanging Hills in Connecticut. (Please be aware the area is named after the terrain found in the area, as far as I'm aware of no hangings have happened there.) According to the legend, if you see it once, it is a sign of joy and good luck. If you see it a second time, it is a warning. If an individual sees the dog a third time, it considered to be a death omen. It is thought by some to be responsible for the deaths of six people, including two U.S. geological surveyors in the late 1,800s who didn't respect its previous warnings because they assumed the legend was a myth even though both supposedly had seen the black dog prior to meeting their demises. In a way it could be argued that the Black dog of the Hanging Hills is a symbol of power for the dead and individuals who are trying to stand to the U.S. government because of their inconsiderate actions against various populations.
The story about the Black Dog of the Hanging Hills was originally published the Connecticut Quarterly in 1898. It was originally thought to be piece of fiction, but that has been debated for a number of years now due to the author's background, the story's original title, the number of people died in the Hanging Hills, and various other things related to the story.

Abbreviated: R.B.I.; An approach to investing where an individual offers to invest, or donate, money, resources, and or provide information to a business or organization, but before the organization can get anything from the investor, they are given some objectives by the potential investor who expects them to make significant progress towards completing them and or complete some of them by a certain point in time before they are willing to invest or donate in their organization or business
Results-Based Investment can be a very useful tool for various individuals and or organizations working to promote social change in society, because it allows them to pressure certain businesses and organizations into taking certain stances on specific social issues and or change policies that are harmful and or unreasonably discriminatory against certain populations.

An approach used by individuals who have very strong political beliefs for forming and maintaining their social circles. Basically, an individual will only be friends with people who are the same political identity and beliefs as them. The same holds true often times when they are deciding whether or not to date a particular person. This approach often causes the people who use to have a very strong political favoritism towards a specific political party and or political ideology. In some cases, they develop a strong intolerance for other political ideologies and parties, which sometimes can lead to unnecessary violence towards other individuals and societal groups who they perceive as having a different political ideology then their own.
Kelsey: Am I the only one that think its odd that all of Chuck's friends are Republicans?
Anna: Yes, I noticed that too. Its kind of strange if you ask me.
Emily: He is probably using the Political Alignment Association Approach when dealing with his social circle, because I know he is a very far right Republican and he does not seem to like me due to the fact I support feminism.
Anna: You should be careful Kelsey. If Chuck finds out you're a Democrat, he may start a yelling match or worse. He has had a history of violence in the past.
Kelsey: I'll keep that in mind.
