I just want to take a second to give my kids props. As much as they drive me crazy, sometimes I marvel at their character. Rarely, if ever, do I get "it's not fair" attitude from them when one gets something and the other does not. Not only that, but they seem to share in the excitement and delight in each other's good fortune in most cases. It's so cool. Both kids are readers. Brooke continues to devour American Girls books, and each time she finishes a collection it seems to coincide with a Better World Books deep discount sale.

This morning I was telling her about my finds and she was excited, and Max was very interested in ensuring that I was getting her the most complete sets and not holding back any reading opportunities.

My first review of WESTERN DESERT...whew! Always takes the pressure off once you know SOMEONE liked it:-) Great story June 25, 2013 By Busy reader Format:Paperback I really enjoyed the first book in the trilogy (Waning Moon) and was looking forward to this one. Western Desert is the second book in the Lily Carmichael trilogy, and this is just as good, if not better. The author did much of the world-building in the first book, but more is explained here, and the action in Western Desert starts right away. The characters are memorable and believable. Lily is a great character, she has her head on straight but isn't invincible. Will is more of a mystery, but his motivation (saving his father) is clear. The post-apocalyptic world the author portrays is frighteningly possible, and the choice many people are forced to make between liberty and safety (sound familiar?) is scary. All in all, a really enjoyable book and highly recommended.
Did you know? A little history behind this statue. Six Boys And Thirteen Hands... Each year I am hired to go to Washington, DC, with the eighth grade class from Clinton, WI where I grew up, to videotape their trip. I greatly enjoy visiting our nation's capitol, and each year I take some special memories back with me. This fall's trip was especially memorable. On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima memorial. This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history -- that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WW II. Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial. I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, 'Where are you guys from?' I told him that we were from Wisconsin. 'Hey, I'm a cheese head, too! Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I will tell you a story.' . ...
"6 Leadership principles" 1. Build The Reputation Of Your Critics During the 1997 Canadian federal election, national news columnist Peter C. Newman found a particularly scathing way to criticize Reform party leader Preston Manning. Manning is “a preacher, not a politician,” Newman said (Newman 1997, 51). The implication was obvious. Preachers are by nature intolerant, impatient, and arrogant. Preachers are “know-it-alls,” dangerous to the citizenry of an enlightened and pluralized public. “‘What was I able to do compared to you?’ When he said this, their anger against him subsided” (Judg. 8:3). I was shocked when I found out a colleague had criticized my abilities behind the scenes. I approached him after struggling to distance myself from my initial emotions. Coincidentally, I had just studied the story of Gideon’s response to his own critics, and I decided to try out his technique. In the book of Judges, Gideon is the weakest member of the weakest clan in his Hebrew tribe, but he is n ...
PLEASE AFTER READING THIS, WHO DO YOU THINK CAN NIGERIA? If Mandela were a Nigerian by Okey Ndibe If Nelson Mandela were a Nigerian, he would never be treated in a hospital within his country. God forbid! At the slightest sign of ill health, he would be airlifted to a hospital in Germany, the UK, the US, France, or Saudi Arabia. Any Nigerian doctor who comes close to him – much less touches him – would immediately be arrested and charged with treason. An SSS interrogator would ask the hapless doctor, “You dey craze? So you wan kill de man?” If Mr. Mandela were a Nigerian, not only would he be in a foreign hospital, he would commandeer an entire wing of the said hospital. No government official would ever give Nigerians updates on his progress or prognosis. *** no! In fact, the only statement the government would ever issue is to deny that the man is hospitalized. Some spokesman would insist that the old man went abroad on vacation, to get some well deserved rest. You see, Nigerian officials – .. ...

What are some of the things a psychologist of mass control might come up with? 1) "Turn the other cheek". If I'm relentlessly hurting you, stealing from you, abusing you, the ideal scenario for me would be for you not to fight back, for you to turn the other cheek and let me keep doing it. Cui bono?

In the 1930s, the du Pont and Morgan family empires dominated the American corporate elite and their representatives were central figures in organizing and funding the American Liberty League. The du Pont family was so complicit in this fascist organization that James Farley, FDR's postmaster general and one of his closest advisors, said the American Liberty League "ought to be called the American Cellophane League" because "first it's a Du Pont product and second, you can see right through it'" (Donald R. McCoy, Coming of Age). Gerard Colby, in his book DuPont Dynasty, outlines the family's pivotal role in creating and funding the League. (Click here for an excerpt.) The Dickstein-McCormack Committee learned that weapons and equipment for the fascist plotters’ Croix de feu-like superarmy “could be obtained from the Remington Arms Co., on credit through the Du Ponts.” Du Pont had acquired control of the arms company in 1932. The du Pont Co., formed in 1802 by Elèuthere Irénée du Pont de Nemours, ...
BECAUSE I’LL NEVER SWIM IN EVERY OCEAN By Catherine Pierce Want is ten thousand blue feathers falling all around me, and me unable to stomach that I might catch five but never ten thousand. So I drop my hands to my sides and wait to be buried. I open a book and the words spring and taunt. Flashes—motel, lapidary, piranha—of every story, every poem I’ll never know well enough to conjure in sleep. What’s the point of words if I can’t own them all? I toss book after book into my imaginary trashcan fire. Or I think I’ll learn piano. At the first lesson, we’re clapping whole and half notes and this is childish, I’m better than this.

The Iliad: Book 19 Now when Dawn in robe of saffron was hasting from the streams of Oceanus, to bring light to mortals and immortals, Thetis reached the ships with the armour that the god had given her. She found her son fallen about the body of Patroclus and weeping bitterly. Many also of his followers were weeping round him, but when the goddess came among them she clasped his hand in her own, saying, "My son, grieve as we may we must let this man lie, for it is by heaven's will that he has fallen; now, therefore, accept from Vulcan this rich and goodly armour, which no man has ever yet borne upon his shoulders." As she spoke she set the armour before Achilles, and it rang out bravely as she did so. The Myrmidons were struck with awe, and none dared look full at it, for they were afraid; but Achilles was roused to still greater fury, and his eyes gleamed with a fierce light, for he was glad when he handled the splendid present which the god had made him. Then, as soon as he had satisfied himself with lo ...
Everyone needs to read this!! just saying. 5 False Beliefs that Are Holding You Back by Benny Hsu Over the years you’ve created a set of beliefs in your mind that you hold to be true. Some are indeed helpful and true, while others have completely fooled you. It’s these latter, false beliefs that quietly hinder your potential and hold you back from the life you are capable of living. Here are five such false beliefs to be aware of: 1. Life owes me something. Just because you’re alive doesn’t mean life is going to hand everything to you. Life doesn’t just get better by itself. It isn’t like flying in a plane through turbulence. Life doesn’t just improve if you fasten your seat belt and wait. Sadly, so many people expect that a great life is coming to them automatically. They believe it’ll come next month or next year. So they continue thinking the same thoughts and doing the same things, just waiting for that day when life will get better. They come home from work, heat up a microwav ...

On the pleasures of reading and many lives . a status update from my friend Patrick Wilson in Bangalore. "A writer is just a reader on steroids. There is no way you can seriously contemplate being a writer if you don’t read. I read a book or two a week, and there’s no feeling out there better than when you discover a new book that sweeps you into a completely different world. There’s a saying that goes something like, ‘a man who does not read only lives a single life, then they die, a reader lives many lives in many different countries and eras before they die.’.Tendai Huchu, writer, Zimbabwe"
The IRS has a new explanation for harassing Tea Party and conservative groups and delaying their tax exempt status until after the 2012 elections. But IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel now claims the agency also scrutinized progressive groups, and that the harassment was much wider than previously reported, and went on much longer. So there was no political targeting, and that means they didn’t do anything wrong. Well, I have two reactions to that. First, it would be more believable if their first response hadn’t been to admit they did it and apologize. And secondly, claiming that they did nothing wrong because they harassed and delayed all Americans equally is not an argument to leave the IRS alone. If that’s really how they see their job, then it’s just all the more reason to abolish the IRS entirely and replace it with a Fair Tax. For more of the Huckabee Report visit MikeHuckabee.com.

"The problem in society Simom is not LGBT people, the problem is you. The small minded, often religious, ignorant people who know little to nothing about what it means to be *** on any level, be it scientifically or socially, and have no interest in taking the time to understand. The problem is that you are able to direct hate at a group of people and then hide behind your Bible, which carries many flaws itself when it comes to moral leadership. You attempt to hide your homophobic hatred behind the idea that being *** is a choice when in actuality your religion, ignorance, and bigotry is what’s being chosen. No one wakes up and decides to be viewed as a second class citizen because they want to. If this is the case, tell me, at what point in your life did you choose to be straight?

For those new, what is The Rule of Three: (aka The Law of Threefold Return) Many new Wiccans and Pagans are initiated with the cautionary words from their elders: "Ever mind the Rule of Three!". This warning is explained to mean that no matter what you do magically, there's a giant Cosmic Force that will make sure your deeds are revisited upon you threefold. It's universally guaranteed, some Pagans claim, which is why you better not EVER perform any harmful magic or at least, that's what they tell you. However, this is one of the most highly contested theories in modern Paganism. Is the Rule of Three real, or is it just something made up by experienced Wiccans to scare the 'newbies' into submission? There are several different schools of thought on the Rule of Three.

Colossians 2:6-7 (Part three) “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” To conclude this passage, Paul gives us three goals for which we should strive. First, we should try and remain established in the faith. This seems like a simple thing, but it can take a lot of work. Faith is something that needs to be treated like a living thing. If you don't care for it, nourish it and pay attention to it, it will die. Faith is more than belief. It is more than simply acknowledging the existence of God. Christian faith should lead one to a deeper understanding of God's will. It is an affirmation that God is in control and that His will is the guiding principle in your life. You should never fear to have your faith called into question. Instead, you should welcome it as an opportunity for growing up in The Lord. Second, we should remember the teachings that led us to follow Chris ...
DAILY DEVOTION - refresh, refocus, renew Through the Ages June 28, 2013 Friday Today’s Scripture: Psalm 19:7-8 "The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes" No other book has had a greater influence on the course of history than God’s Word. Consider the testimony of greats from previous generations: • George Washington: It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. • Abraham Lincoln: I am profitably engaged in reading the Bible. Take all of this Book that you can by reason and the balance by faith, and you will live and die a better man. It is the best Book which God has given to man. • John Quincy Adams: So great is my veneration for the Bible that the earlier my children begin to read it the more confident will be my hope that they will prove useful citizens of their country and respecta ...
Leviticus 2:1    ‘When anyone offers a grain offering to the Lord, his offering shall be of fine flour...        I love the symbolism of Jesus as fine flour. Fine, even flour comes from wheat that has been pounded and beaten again and again, and sifted several times. Doesn’t that remind you of Jesus’ sufferings and sacrifice for you?     And like fine flour, there is nothing coarse about the person of Jesus. Everything about Him is in even proportions. Every word that He spoke when He was in this world, every thought of His, every action of His, was so fine! When He was kind, He was not soft. When He was assertive, He was not overbearing. He is steel and velvet, meekness and majesty. Like a perfect diamond, every which way you turn Him, you see flawlessness, beauty and brilliance. There is no one altogether lovely like Jesus!     What about Bible greats like Moses and Abraham, or Peter, John and Paul?     Moses, whom the Bible says was more humble than any man on the face of ...

Daily Kickstart: Please remember that your performance each day reflects the influences you expose your mind to. Allowing toxic conversations, news, low quality magazines and mindless entertainment into your mental orbit will fuel "a mentality of mediocrity". On the other hand, only allowing the greatest information and the absolute best influences into your mind will construct beliefs and thinking habits of excellence. Which then drives habits and results of pure excellence. Hope this post is practical and helpful. I want you to go out there today and show people what being amazing (and a really good human being) looks like. Stay great. Robin P.S. There's a huge amount of buzz on The Titan Program, my new 1 year elite coaching mastermind starting with The Titan Summit in December. I'm not ready to post the details yet. Sorry.

The Religion of Islam The Meaning of the Word “Islam” The word “Islam” is the verbal noun of the verb aslama. This verb is de-fined as, “He resigned or submitted himself.” When used with respect to God, it means, “He became submissive to God.” Thus, Islam is about an individual recognizing who his Lord is and recognizing that his attitude toward his Lord and Creator should be one of submission and worship. In other words, Islam is not simply about the recognition of the Oneness of God or the fact that the Creator exists, for example. Islam is about something much greater than that. It is about the conscious decision made by the individual to worship and sub-mit to the one and only God. Thus, as Nomani wrote, Literally, Islam denotes self-surrender or to give oneself up to someone and accept his overlordship in the fullest sense of the term. The religion sent down by God and brought into the world by His Apostles has been called Islam for the simple reason that, in it, the bondsman yields . ...
WORLD WAR Z REVIEW By Matthew Jarjosa I have not read the novel “World War Z” by Mel Brooks spawn Max Brooks, though I am aware that the book’s legions of fans were disappointed by the announcement of its big screen counterpart, which changed the book’s structure from a series of interviews amidst a zombie outbreak to an action vehicle for producer/star Brad Pitt. I can’t speak on how the film version of WWZ holds up to the book, but I can tell you that director Marc Forester and company have delivered a most unique zombie film that tries (and mostly succeeds) in breathing new life into a dead (or undead) genre. The story follows ex-U.N. agent Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) who is forced back into commission after a zombie plague sweeps the globe. Lane traverses countries around the world in search of “Patient Zero”, the initial cause of the outbreak in hopes a cure can be found. As city after city falls before masses of screaming, crawling undead, the world depends on Lane to halt the coming apo .. ...

So did anyone go see World War Z yet I want to know how awesome it is!
look. i get it. pathfinder is a world of giant robots and golems fighting people in EPIC ARMOR at 3rd level. but that does not mean every game product for pathfinder needs to have magical spells on every street corner. there is room for normal people, right? i shouldn't have to explain to a writer 25 times that THIS CHARACTER IS A SOCIALITE and not a spell-casting bard. stop trying to make her a bard. i will not print her as a bard. 24 times will suffice. stop trying to convince me that you know better than i do. you could be 100% correct and i'm still the guy publishing the book. thank you. /rant
Praise be to Allaah. Friday has many distinguishing features and virtues that Allaah has bestowed upon this day and not others. It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah and Hudhayfah (may Allaah be pleased with them) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah led those who came before us away from Friday. The Jews had Saturday, and the Christians had Sunday. Then Allaah brought us and Allaah guided us to Friday. So there is Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and thus they will follow us on the Day of Resurrection. We are the last of the people of this world but we will be the first on the Day of Resurrection, and we will be dealt with before all others.” Narrated by Muslim, 856. Al-Nawawi said: Al-Qaadi said: The apparent meaning is that it was obligatory for them to venerate Friday but this was not stated clearly; the matter was left to their own reasoning… But they did not manage to work it out and Allaah did not guide them to it. It was enjoined clearly upon this u ...

Spirituality informs all aspects of Indian culture, and according to a recent Gallup survey, no county has a higher percentage of respondents who believe that religion is "very important" to their lives. (The United States ranks second.) However, the term "Hindu" is often mistakenly viewed as referring to a single religious system, when in fact, the term came into being as a geographical designation used primarily by foreigners, and is not found is the Bhagavad-gita or any of the classical writings of India. Even today the term is better understood as a collection of many religious traditions as diverse as Jainism and Shaktism: "It should be pointed out that the word "Hindu" is not found in any of the classical writings of India. Nor can it be traced to the classical Indian languages, such as Sanskrit or Tamil. In fact, the word 'Hinduism' has absolutely no origins within India itself. Still, it persists, and traditions as diverse as Shaivism and Jainism, Shaktism and Vaishnavism, have been described as ' ...

The most important review of all - the first response the to the book is in. Thank you Patti Taylor. I wish this had been the book's blurb. Annnette, I am no writer. But I believe in the importance of Christopher's life and his work. If you can use any portion of this it is my pleasure. Feel free to change as needed. Christopher has many friends whose eloquent pens might better serve your needs so if you choose not to use, my joy will remain solid that this remarkable book is about to be published. Sincerely in love and peace, Patti Christopher has the gift of bringing to life those ghosts who remain with us, long after their lives have been lost to the horrors of oppression and hatred. His words soothe, signify and remind us that we have an obligation to not only never forget, but to never give in or give up in our struggle to eliminate the circumstances that lead to their pain and annihilation. This is a work of monumental importance in a world that has so clearly lost its way; a mighty voice that d ...

Finally Part 4 now of the story how some mad men took the challenge again to ride in the middle of winter over 550 km ( and I´m sure there are many others done much more) to the legendary elephant motorbike rally which is always been hold in the middle of the winter. And yes it´s freezin cold there. If you read the story and you like it it would be great if you could leave a comment underneath as I would like to know how you liked it (and specially my translation from German in English)  Would be very kind of you Thanks a lot By the way the rest of the story is on my wall. I could not send it in one piece. It was just to long      “up there !” I hobbled after them, and then finally known where they have found their place. Seeing their motorcycles just dug through the spinning rear wheels into the ground. Also an idea. Just for today I had just enough and the only thing I wanted was to sleep or die. I felt my foot swelling and was afraid that could curse a bigger problem. I fervently hoped that K ...
Taking tea with the Tablighi Jama’at By Jenny Taylor I realized quite suddenly that I was in love with India. It had been building up, from admittedly inauspicious beginnings. The suffocating yellow dust of Delhi, the huddled poor in filthy rags sitting by miserable little fires on every patch of waste ground; the scabby dogs and dying puppies; the way nothing ever seems to be finished off, or final; the traffic that careens crazily along pitted highways; the way no one, literally no one, can drive in a straight line, or give way. Yet in twenty years, India has changed. Once you get tuned in, it dawns on you that India is doing what I once thought beyond imagining: changing for the better. The slums are not as big as they were. People actually queue for things, rather than simply barge past you to reach their objective. There is a Metro that is clean, efficient and safe (all bags are searched politely and thoroughly, with a booth for women). Poverty may be all around, but the mental illness one m ...

Here's an interesting read: Caroline Kennedy discusses her love of poetry and "Poems to Learn by Heart," the collection she has edited. By Elizabeth Lund, Contributor / April 9, 2013 Caroline Kennedy says that poetry has been part of her life since childhood. She sees it as a gift that expands children's horizons. “You’re a wonderful ambassador for poetry,” a reporter tells Caroline Kennedy one day earlier this month, as hundreds of people line up outside the Coolidge Corner Theater in Bookline, Mass., waiting to hear Kennedy speak about "Poems to Learn by Heart," the latest collection of poetry for which she has served as editor. Kennedy’s eyes grow wide for a moment. Then she graciously accepts the compliment, explaining why she thinks poetry matters, particularly to young readers: “Poetry broadens your horizons and helps kids distinguish what’s important information and authentic feeling from a lot of the noise and fragmentary sources of information that they get.” For Kennedy herself, re ...

Reader Question: My daughter is not diagnosed with anything but I suspect maybe ADD or minor SPD (the only reason I say SPD is because she's ultra sensitive to noise, like if the fire alarm goes off she goes into a panic). I plan to take action to look into this further, but in the meantime I'm trying to find a curriculum to suit her better. We've been doing My Father's World which we like, but she gets distracted and disinterested after a short time of the book work. I'm considering either a completely computer based curriculum like Switched On Schoolhouse since she told me (I asked her directly what would help her get her schoolwork done) that she would like to do her work on the computer better, or I'm considering something like Moving Beyond the Page, since that's supposed to be more hands on for "gifted learners". I don't know if she's technically gifted, I do know she gets bored easily, picks concepts (like reading) up very fast, and we had to switch her from the K to the 1st level in MFW halfway th ...
Elephant Rally the third part of my story Teil 3 I stood in the exact place up the track and was as *** proud as the warriors in the movie "Braveheart” to be again part of this event. The rumbling just began as the Hard looking Gangmember, with its fully stitched jacket with patches, looked towards me and started to cry! A guy like a tree and arms like Schwarzenegger now stood there crying. With tears in his eyes he said: "Have you ever seen anything so cool?" "Yep !” I said, also fighting with tears.   “That´s one the reason why I´m here again and I´m sure I´m back next year again!" "Then we'll see us again for sure because I´ll here them too!" He nodded and without a word we looked taken from the spectacel back down to the valley as the huge glowing worm started to crawl along the track. Unbelievable. When the first arrive back at the start the last not even left. I felt warm till I went back to my sleeping back and found out that warm feelings don´t help against the cold L So we stayed .. ...
It is very easy to judge a book by its cover because to know the main theme, you have to read it, understand it and swallow it. And, who in the world has time to look and search for the truth? So, better see what is apparent and all goes fine. Or far more easier, spread a word about it and it becomes a common word. Now, that book is popular among the masses not for its content, but, for the superficial glance of a fool. Same goes when a man is judged. You dont know the scenario, you have no idea about the life of a person and absolutely not a single notion about the man's character and still, you by a mere glance or an outlook, assume a disfigured appearance that is equivalent to your thinking capacity. What we see in others is infact, a part of our thinking. When we see good, its our mentality and when we see bad, it is also our thinking. This is about some random man, you know not or have not ever interacted in your life time. But, one thing that I deem the worst, is, when you spread a false idea and pu ...
RECREATING YOUR WORLD Recreating your world means changing the circumstances of your life; looking T Your surroundings and changing them to suit you; taking yourself from a particular level of life to another. In acts 1:8 Jesus said, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” There are basically two Greek words translated “power” in the New Testament. The first is ”EXOUSIA”, this refers to delegated power which is authority, that is, the right to act for another. It is this word that is translated “power” in Matthews 9:8 “But when the multitudes saw it , they marveled, and glorified God, which had given such OWER (authority) unto men.” It is also found in Matthew 28:18: “And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power (authority) is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” The other Greek word translated power is “DUNA ...
Date: June 28, 2013 7:29:28 AM EDT Subject: LWF: An Unchanging Message to a Changing World - 1 Kings 22:1–14 part 2   You know, taking a stand for Christ may make you feel a bit lonely at times.  But it is better to stand alone with the truth than to be wrong with a multitude.   Today false unity is made paramount in our changing world as truth takes a backseat to this hive or borg mindset of 'unity'.   Have you noticed how quickly everything is changing in our churches, society and this world?   Now if you stand for the immutable truth of The Word of God you will be accused of being a Bible thumper even in your own church!   Now remember we are looking at five Biblical positions concerning The Truth.   And I pray that these truths will come alive in you, me and the church in this dark day and age.   Yesterday we saw that   1) It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error, and .   2) It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals then to tell a lie that comforts and ...
Name Although these two Surahs of the Quran are separate entities and are written in the Mushaf also under separate names, yet they are so deeply related mutually and their contents so closely resemble each other's that they have been designated by a common name Mu'awwidhatayn (the two Surahs in which refuge with Allah has been sought). Imam Baihaqi in Dala'il an-Nubuwwat has written that these Surahs were revealed together, that is why the combined name of both is Mu'awwidhatayn. We are writing the same one Introduction to both, for they discuss and deal with just the same matters and topics. However, they will be explained and commented on separately below. Period of Revelation Hadrat Hasan Basri, 'Ikrimah, 'Ata' and Jabir bin Zaid say that these Surahs are Makki. A tradition from Hadrat 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas also supports the same view. However, according to another tradition from him, it is Madani and the same view is held also by Hadrat 'Abdullah bin Zubair and Qatadah. One of the traditions whi ...

WHSmith staff need to be briefed when they are taken on to not put religious books on the lowest shelves. As i walked past today casually looking for the cookery books i noticed the Holy Qura'n on the bottom shelf, at first i picked it up, looked at where the other respective religious books were stacked and put it along with them- which included The Bible and others. i waited for a short while hesitating at first to ask for the manager but then thought the silly staff would come along and tidy up and place it right back down again to where i found it from. So the manager was called, situation explained that it shouldn't be placed on the lower shelf no matter what as it's extremely disrespectful seeing that our Holy Book is placed so low to floor level... He apologised and responded by saying that they follow plans sent by higher management... And furthermore by saying "I'm an Atheist, it doesn't bother me where it goes." He made room on the top shelf, placed it there, apologised and hurried off doing wha ...

Yes, the over-sexualization of society, and the proliferation of homosexuality has been successfully executed. We've almost entered a point of no return. The tides have turned, the wheel has moved, the trends no longer right now are like our parents and fore-parents saw... But not because it just was the way of Nature. It simply became this way because some of the smartest people ever are/were the ones conspiring in pushing for Sexual Proliferation, and the *** agenda. People you most probably have never heard of. People you most probably might never get to know or meet, but whose moves and actions will in many more ways than one, thoroughly nearly-irreversibly alter your life in the most profound ways, mostly for evil. In terms of brilliance, we must give them much credit. And yes, homosexuality exists in nature, even in animals. *** have always been with us and always will be. Some by choice or influence, others by nature. In a natural situation, 3.5% of the society having *** tendencies is somewhat ki ...
Could You Say “Imitate Me?” “Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1 It sounds a little audacious of Paul to tell the church, “Do what I do.” Most of us know our own shortcomings, so we say “Do what I say, not what I do.” If people were to see how we lived our lives up close, we wouldn’t want them to imitate us. Think about the life that you lead. We hear that phrase a lot: “Life you lead.” Usually, when we say that phrase, it means “the path life is taking us on,” or “the career we’ve chosen.” Not that we’re actually intentionally taking steps to live the life we intend to live. Most people have a big dissonance between what their intentions are and what their actions are. It makes us uncomfortable to even talk about that, because we feel guilty for not living up to our own standards. Over and over again in books on leadership, you’ll find the very first step to being a good leader is learning to lead yourself. Rather than that being just a phrase, w ...
Most times we are all guilty of treating the bible as 'a feel good book' that means we use the verses in the bible to make us feel good we only read the verses that promises blessings, never thinking all the promises of God are conditional. What is the condition? The condition is we can ONLY receive from God through what Jesus did for us at Calvary, God, beginning with Adam has dealt with mankind through a covenant. When He started dealing with Abraham it was through a covenant as well thats why we see when Abraham had died God came to Isaac and renewed that covenant Gen 26:1-5, and when it was Jacob's turn God yet appeared to Jacob and renewed that covenant gen 28:10-15. Look at what God said when He first appeared to Moses, I am the God of your father Abraham, Isaac and Jacob ex 3:6-8, it was time to fulfil His promises to the 3 Patriarchs and go through the old testament you will see everytime Israel was in trouble their prayer would be THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB, why? Because its a COVENANT . ...

There is a difference between the Old Covenant and the New Covenant - Do you understand what the difference is? Hebrews 7:19 'For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did ...' The Old Covenant was a set of laws designed to guide a nation towards peace and justice. Yahweh used His chosen people, Yisrael, as an example to all mankind that justice is impossible in this world. Yahweh announced this revelation back in Genesis 8:27, when He said, "The imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth.' When we, as people, try to defend ourselves as human beings by creating a system that says some are more justice than others - some are better suited to judge others, condemn others and imprison others - we are falling back on the Old Covenant ways. In Luke 18:19, Yahshua said that no one is good, not even He was good - but there is one that is good - His Father in heaven - Yahweh. Romans 3:10 reminds us of the book of Psalms - "There is none righteous, no, not one." I don't car ...
Getting married is very much like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you want then, when you see what the other person has, you wish you had ordered that. - Man: Is there any way for long life? Dr: Get married. Man: Will it help? Dr: No, but the thought of long life will never come. - Why do couples hold hands during their wedding? It's a formality just like two boxers shaking hands before the fight begins! - Wife: Darling today is our anniversary, what should we do? Husband: Let us stand in silence for 2 minutes. - It's funny when people discuss Love Marriage vs Arranged. It's like asking someone, if suicide is better or being murdered. - It is difficult to understand GOD. He makes such beautiful things as women and then he turns them into Wives. - If u r married please ignore this msg, for everyone else: Happy Independence Day - Before marriage, a man will lie awake all night thinking about something you say. After marriage, he'll fall asleep before you finish. - There's a way of transfe ...

With Jesus, know peace; without Him NO peace. With Jesus, know prosperity; without Him, NO prosperity. With Jesus, know provision; without Him, NO provision. With Jesus, know protection; without Him, NO protection. With Jesus; health, healing and wholeness; without Him, NO health, NO healing, NO wholeness. HE is your righteousness; your righteousness is filthy rags. He became sin FOR YOU, even though He knew NO sin, so that you could be the righteousness of God, in HIM. Surely He bore your infirmities and diseases. By HIS wounds, you are healed! This is ALL His word, not mine. That makes it all-TRUTH! He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, no one comes to the Father except through HIM! NOBODY makes it to Heaven without Him! Everything we are or we have that is GOOD, is from HIM! He is our Savior, our Healer, our Redeemer. He is our Lord and our God. He is our friend, our brother, our Father, our "daddy". He created this world and the universe with the words of His mouth. He created man with the dust of th ...
Robert Kiyosaki in his book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, asked the question: “Does school prepare children for the real world?” “Study hard and get good grades and you will find a high-paying job with great benefits”, parents used to say. But gone are those days! There has been a paradigm shift from focus on paper qualification to skills acquisition in the last couple of decades. But rather unfortunately, Nigeria and other African nations are awaking to these realities rather too late. It is absolute disillusionment for a 21st century student to have a mindset that a first class degree is sufficient to land him that plum job when he knows next to nothing about how real corporations are run. It is a saddening reality that prompts me to address this anomaly as leaving the status quo spells doom for the Nigerian future. The University of Lagos only recently had its convocation where over 6,000 graduates received degrees in different categories. This writer could not but wonder what these graduates woul ...

Kayode's lone strike enough for the Flying Eagles Olarenwaju Kayode's first goal of FIFA U-20 World Cup Turkey 2013 was enough to see Nigeria beat Korea Republic and book a place in the last-16, with the Asian needing to wait on other results to know their future. Nigeria took the lead inside ten minutes thanks to Kayode's first goal of the tournament – having struck three times at Colombia 2011. He was assisted by their captain fantastic Abdul Ajagun, who swung in a free-kick from the left, and an unmarked Kayode headed simply past Lee Changguen. Korea's marking at set-pieces was leaving a lot to be desired, with the 16-year-old Onyinye Ndidi rising above all in red to head just wide. The West Africans were in complete control of the early exchanges, with Kayode almost doubling his tally from a tight angle after a fine ball from Olaitan Michael. His next chance would have been a candidate for goal of the tournament. Song Juhun forced the unattached forward wide after a high ball, but from the right sid ...
What Is HIV? To understand what HIV is, let’s break it down: H – Human – This particular virus can only infect human beings. I – Immunodeficiency – HIV weakens your immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. A "deficient" immune system can't protect you. V – Virus – A virus can only reproduce itself by taking over a cell in the body of its host. Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a lot like other viruses, including those that cause the "flu" or the common cold. But there is an important difference – over time, your immune system can clear most viruses out of your body. That isn't the case with HIV – the human immune system can't seem to get rid of it. Scientists are still trying to figure out why. We know that HIV can hide for long periods of time in the cells of your body and that it attacks a key part of your immune system – your T-cells or CD4 cells. Your body has to have these cells to fight infections and disease, but HIV invades them, uses them to ...

We write this to you Arsho , the most precious gift that God send us from heaven nine years ago . At the time you were born we were thinking which books we need to buy and which are the best articles that we need to read and educate ourselves in order to be in a position to transfer the best knowledge to you …which activities and hobbies we need to engage you to …which type of sports you may be interested with…which schools we need to book for you even from such an early stage, we felt that as parents we need to plan your life and try to design the architecture of your life much in advance , however we never knew that a day will come where we , as your parents , will be the ones to learn and get this knowledge from you Arsho and not the opposite . We felt that we entered to your world Arsho , we had the belief that this was part of a plan which was set to us from the beginning , a plan where God bestowed his blessings and his very special gift to those people who he loves and trusts more in life a . ...

UKIP leader Nigel Farage said: “It is still a rotten deal for Britain. The British taxpayer has nothing to celebrate as £53million will still be leaving each day bound for Brussels. Why should we be paying a penny piece to this financially incontinent EU?”

QUOTE 2 - WHO IS BELLAMY TALKING ABOUT? Tell us who Craig Bellamy is talking about in this quote from his autobiography and you could win a SIGNED copy. We'll randomly pick one fan who answers correctly within one hour of this post. There'll be two more chances to win on this page later today. Quote: "He was an incredible player and a lovely guy. He trained hard and worked relentlessly during matches. He took a *** of a lot of punishment, too. He would take his socks off after a game and his calves and his ankle would be black and blue from where he had been kicked."
As most of you all know, I've been working on a project for an anthology. The story is almost done. I've approximately 5k words left on it to go, but I've a little dilemma with it. You see, this story is a prequel, of sorts, to the Child of Calamity series. While in a sense, it does fit in with the idea of the anthology, I sort of don't want to release the prequel just yet. Mostly because I want books 1 to 3 out first before I release this baby to the world. If I were to hand it off to anthology, it would sort of mess up the little timeline I've got going, you know? The Goddess's Wishes is almost ready. Beta ARC's will be completely finalized within the next day or so. Protected Secrets has approximately 7,882 words to go on it. The third book, taking up from Apollo's point-of-view, has been started, and will progress accordingly soon enough. The title on that is still pending, however. So my question to you all is this - should I progress as planned with books 1 through 3, and then release the first preq ...

Anonymous question reposted by Joanne :) I’m having huge problems with someone really important to me. He isn’t diagnosed as an Aspie, but the more that happens, the more I think that it is possible. We have an incredibly complicated relationship. I’m older and more experienced than he is in life and love. Last year we had feelings for each other. He would go from being happy about us liking each other, to completely withdrawing from me because he couldn’t deal with it all the time, constantly yo-yoing, but always scared, always worried. He was scared of being hurt, scared of it not working, and scared of committing. He thought he was not ready, and that I knew everything, and was too good for him, and that he knew nothing and he would screw everything up. No matter what I said, or how much support I gave, he was always happy but terrified. Eventually he really started hurting me with his actions and words, unintentionally. Because I’m quite constant (quite calm, constant emotions, always there) ...

How some people can treat us like *** and not expect to get bitten on the bum really confuses me.
Are audiobooks an acquired taste, or do I just hate an entire format?
You might argue with this — but it is my expressed opinion that you really can’t expect to walk through the office door a virtuoso. Whether you are new to the workplace, or simply changing roles, it will take a bit of time to establish your reputation and set yourself apart from the crowd. This is perfectly fine — as good things can come with patience. Tom Peter’s classic article, The Brand Called You, emphasized the importance of developing your own career brand in our fast-paced world of work — and I fully agree with his premise. Standing out in a sea of competition can be daunting, and branding is a savvy perspective to consider. You are your own brand, and you have the control to develop that brand wisely. Keeping your nose to the grindstone is a great place to start, but a solid “brand” strategy is even better. You need to set a projected path and make the most of every interaction. Whatever you are doing —  make a commitment to do it well — no matter what the task. Because ultim ...
EVENING PRAYER Today is Friday, June 28, 2013 Friday after Trinity IV The Season is TRINITY The liturgical color of the day is GREEN The Minister shall begin the Evening Prayer by reading one or more of the following Sentences of Scripture; and then he shall say that which is written after them. But he may, at his discretion, pass at once from the Sentences to the Lord's Prayer. And NOTE, that when the Confession and Absolution are omitted, the Minister may, after the Sentences, pass to the Versicles, O Lord, open thou our lips, etc., in which case the Lord's Prayer shall be said with the other prayers, immediately after The Lord be with you, etc., and before the Versicles and Responses which follow. THE LORD is in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him. Hab. ii. 20. LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth. Psalm xxvi. 8. Let my prayer be set forth in thy sight as the incense; and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice. ...
Ya I know I can't believe what kinda of world we live in today, and if my little rant offends anyone, well tough and good luck getting a apology. A Texas bill that would have put a ban on late term abortions, which is 20 weeks of pregnancy, and also put such strict limits on the clinics, that it could have put a end to them altogether, was thrown out after a 11 hour filibuster by Senator democrat Wendy Davis, the really sickening part is when it was thrown out she throws up her hands in celebration along with hundreds of other people. What are they all celebrating the future murder of innocent children?!?!? And most media outlets are praising this woman and these people for standing up for women and their rights?? Call me crazy but how bout all the women in the womb that will have their lives taken because someone simply decided they weren't ready for children or didn't mean to get pregnant?? What rights do they have??? NONE because all these pro-choice people have taken their rights to live by giving oth ...

One or Two of the links don't work here, but other than that it's all there. ~Simon One People’s Public Trust Lawfully Forecloses Corporations, Banks and Governments for Operating Slavery and Private Money Systems 17 February 2013 By Andy Whiteley Co-Founder of Wake Up World and Being of the Creator Many of you have heard… many have not. Announced publicly on 25 December 2012, the system of Corporate-Governmental rule has been foreclosed. Legally foreclosed… via one of its own mechanisms. The “Powers That Be” are now the “Powers That Were”. All debt has been erased and corporations – including but not limited to Corporate Governments and Banks – have been foreclosed. Sure, they may continue to play along in hopes we will play along with them. But thanks to a series of UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) filings made by the One People’s Public Trust (known as OPPT) the choice is now yours to make. A new framework for social governance is now in effect; a fact that has been ratified by the ‘ ...
Friday sermon - ZAKAT Shaban 1434, 28 June 2013. First sermon All praise is due to Allah. He extends provision for whom He wills of His servants and restricts for him. I extol Him as is befitting to His glorious sovereignty and status. I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship, except for Allah alone without any partners or peers. To Him belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth and whatever is within them. And He is over all things competent. I also witness that Muhammad pbuh is His servant and Messenger, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, his family, his Companions, and all those who will follow them in righteousness till the Day of Judgment. O Servants of Allah, I urge you and myself to be mindful of Allah the Almighty and obey Him, in light of what He says, “so fear Allah as much as you are able and listen and obey and spend [in the way of Allah]; it is better for your selves.” (Attaghabun: 16). He the Almighty also says,”so give good tidings to My ...
Reading is a good habit Today is globalization. So, everyone should be educated and also need to learn everything. Nearly all successful and intelligent people claim they read at least one new informative book each week and for good reason it is the best way of learning. Not many people have achieved success without knowledge and learning you acquire knowledge through reading. One of the most powerful yet probably underestimated self-development tools is reading. The benefits of reading are limitless and it is age old tradition and past times which will never become dated. With the technological revolution forever gathering pace many people now overlook the many health and therapeutic benefits of reading. Francis Bacon says: "Reading make a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man". Reading habit is one of the best characteristics that a man can possess. It is said that a book is one's best friend in life. By reading a good book, one can not only earn knowledge but also gain experience i ...
June 28 Daily Reflections THE DETERMINATION OF OUR FOUNDERS A year and six months later these three had succeeded with seven more. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 159 If it had not been for the fierce determination of our founders, A.A. would have quickly faded like so many other so-called good causes. I look at the hundreds of meetings weekly in the city where I live and I know A.A. is available twenty-four hours a day. If I had had to hang on with nothing but hope and a desire not to drink, experiencing rejection wherever I went, I would have sought the easier, softer way and returned to my previous way of life. * * Twenty-Four Hours A Day A.A. Thought For The Day You can prove to yourself that life is basically and fundamentally an inner attitude. Just try to remember what troubled you most a week ago. You probably will find it difficult to remember. Why then should you unduly worry or fret over the problems that arise today? Your attitude toward them can be changed by putting yourself and your problems in Go ...

The Blood Has Never Lost It's Power!!! I AM CALLED AND CHOSEN TO BUILD LIVES AND NOT BUILDINGS Catch Up!!! Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is My Body. 27 And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink you all of it; 28 For this is My Blood of The New Testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. Ephesians 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with All Spiritual b ...
FROM SLAVES TO MASTERS A whole army of slaves worked at the building of the Pyramids of Egypt, in a way of which the modern man can have no inkling. Every slave realised: ‘This present life of mine is only one among many lives. I shall have many lives on this Earth. And just as somebody is in command where I am now a slave, so I myself shall one day be in command.’ And so life was bearable for such human beings. They understood Karma. They knew that if they suffered, they had previously laid the basis for this suffering. They knew they were visitors on the Earth and this produced in them quite a different consciousness of and attitude to culture and civilisation. But this state of things could not remain, for human beings have quite another task. We must not be mere visitor’s on the Earth, but transform the Earth, spiritualise everything material; we must work the spirit into the Earth. Everything that we do to the Earth we do to the Godhead — no matter what we accomplish. Everything is part of on ...
Moshe Kempinski We are in the midst of the three weeks of longing. Longing for the House wherein G-d’s Presence was felt so powerfully and has since been so lacking since its destruction. We long for the day when all mankind will long for its rebuilding and will in fact be a participant in its dedication. The painful question remains “ until then , what?” In the Torah portion of Pinchas ,after the description of all the households that make up the people of Israel ,we read the following; The daughters of Zelaphchad the son of Hepher, the son of Gilead, the  son of Machir, the son of Manasseh, of the families of Manasseh the son of Joseph, came  forward, ...They stood before Moshe and before Eleazar the kohen and before the  chieftains and the entire congregation at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting,  saying,..; Our father died in the desert. Why should the name of our father be done away from among his family, because he had no son? Give unto us a possession among the brethren of our father.' ...

Hi Fabulous Friends, It is a Friendly, Fun Friday Ask any question and I will answer hoestly! NB Ask a question you can equally answer!
This blessed month is a great opportunity  for goodness, barakah (blessing), worship and obedience towards Allaah.  It  is a great month, a noble season, a month  in which hasanaat  (rewards for good deeds) are multiplied and in  which committing  sayi’aat (bad deeds) is more serious than at other  times. The gates of  Paradise are opened and the gates of *** are shut, and the  sinners’  repentance to Allaah is accepted. It is a month whose  beginning is    mercy, its middle is forgiveness and its end is redemption from the   Fire. So  give thanks to Him for the season of  goodness and blessing  that He has bestowed upon you, and for the  means of bounty and various  kinds of great blessings for which He has  singled you   out.  Make the  most of this blessed time by filling it with acts of  worship and  forsaking haraam things, so that you may attain a good life  in  this  world and happiness after death.    For  the sincere believer, every month is an  occasion f ...
