Hello my name is John LaPierre, I am in the process of putting together a social enterprise business in Saint John NB Canada. My mission statement is as follows: Mission statement I am seeking to create employment for disadvantaged New Brunswickers, Canadians, North Americans and so on including: • recovering addicts (addiction comes in many forms) • persons with mental or physical issues • persons reintegrating back into society Respecting the environment is a key component of this social enterprise. Through several forms of recycling, the goal is to create usable products such as building materials, recyclable metals and other recyclable products from the deconstruction and demolition of buildings. Beyond the materials themselves, benefits realized will be diverting waste from landfills and reducing our carbon footprint. If there is any way you could give me assistance it would be greatly appreciated, whether it be helping me with my business model or plan, getting me in touch with investors and . ...
You're right, Spanish found the solution! In France something like North Americans, Central Americans and South Americans, but
SIGNS OF THE TIMES NEWSCAST As Russian troops roll into Crimea, and Russian media promote a total support of invasion, there is a solitary Christian radio station in Moscow taking a different stand. New Life Radio-Moscow is serving as a bridge between Christians in each country, broadcasting 24/7 the good news that God is still on the throne. Broadcasting via satellite and internet, New Life Radio Moscow is providing critical information to its listening audience scattered across Russia's many time zones, and into every Ukrainian community. The station began broadcasting in 1996 and is located in the Red Square. They lost one of their satellite signals due to Kremlin orders and are appealing to North Americans for funding to keep their broadcasting on the air. Go to C R F R (dot) org to donate.

I love Joe Wright, but I can't say I'm surprised. His idea of diversity = North Americans.
According to a poll released Monday by the Pew Research Center, the escalating conflict between Russia and Ukraine has left North Americans sharply and bitterly divided along ignorant and apathetic lines, with the nation’s citizenry evenly split between grossly misinformed and wholly indifferent factions.
North Americans are in 3 weeks in Feasterville and the Caspers welcome Connor McStravick back into the lineup, along with Charlie Read, Mark Allen, Steve Meade, and George Anderoski. These additions make the Caspers even stronger upfront and a team to be reckon with.

Here is a Molotov cocktail for a sports debate and I already know I am getting beaten up for this. Adam Silver dropped a big hint that he will push to raise the minimum age to enter the NBA for North Americans to 20 years old and two years removed from high school in the next CBA. First of all I think it is a good business decsion for the same reason the NFL does so. But as a purely selfish sports fan, I would LOVE to see that rule kick in because it would make college basketball into water cooler discussion worthy, appointment television again. I am watching the Fab Five 30-for-30 right now and I am thinking, "THIS is when college basketball was the BOMB." We can never again have a landscape like that in college basketball without a rule like that in the pros.
Thoughts on the Ukraine from a former IO As North Americans, it's easy for us to love 'Freedom' and get excited when we see people in Ukraine or Syria crave democracy. I, too, have these feelings. I'd like everyone to pause and think about what we would think if we lived in Russia. This 'nation-state empathy' is essential in IOs--we have to look out of the other guys eyes all the time So--if you're Russian, having the EU (which has a military component and is run by the Germans) in Ukraine is roughly the equivalent of Quebec joining the Warsaw Pact. This isn't just about 'economics' or 'freedom'. Powerful nation-states have zones of control that help create the climate of safety and assurance that allow the conditions of diplomacy and trade. Russia is, in fact, less powerful and more insecure than they were twenty years ago--and that's saying something. If you think that we North Americans are immune from these feelings, I'll just mention two words--Cuba, and Quebec. Enough said? I am not advocatin ...
Kristi Rendahl's presentation during ARS Youth Connect Program 2014: Kristi Rendahl's relationship with Armenia began in May of 1997, when she arrived in Yerevan as a fresh college graduate who was ready to change the world (whatever that meant). Since then she has taught piano students, coordinated grassroots efforts to provide affordable housing, researched prospects for agritourism in the country, and worked with some of the most impressive Diasporan Armenian philanthropists, among other endeavors and just plain tourism. Whether talking with the long since established Armenian community in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, or meeting Armenians in one of Amsterdam's Schiphol airport bathrooms, Rendahl loves to learn about the Armenian experience. At the ARS Youth Connect Program in 2014, she will discuss the development of the nonprofit / NGO sector in Armenia and contrast it with the assumptions North Americans often unwittingly project on the country. It will provide context for those interested in supporting an ...
North Americans at all interesting. And ... some Europeans, South Americans, Asians, Australians and Kiwis would be great.
So since I am active these days on FB here is my rant. Just want to vent and say to people who want to listen and read and all the journalist or TV propaganda BS. Olympic Games should be about sports, athletes that live and breathe for what they are doing there, and common feeling of sportsmanship and one time in four year where all the nations of the world come together and are willing to put politics and everything else aside and just enjoy it. But for God sake why would we allow to be just that. We ( especially) North Americans have to talk about politics, Putin, poverty in Russia, injustice done to *** , corruption and everything wrong in Russia and all of that as part of " before" the ceremony program. So I am excising my freedom of speech and asking to all those guys and respected journalist to answer the simple question why they have been fed with this propaganda and did they do their homework before speaking ugly about somebody else. So dear Peter Mansbridge : how many poor people is in Cana ...

Liberal politicians, liberal columnists, and liberal readers find that their worldview is being abandoned by most North Americans. Nothing that liberals do seems to work anymore. A recent article in New York magazine on New York Times economist and Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman is indicative of the collapse of liberalism. The article is called "What's Left of the Left?" When you finish the article, you get the idea that not much is left of the Left. President Obama has generally ignored Krugman and the five other Keynesian economists who consulted with him recently. The article gives the impression that Krugman knows that he is one of the last men standing. He is standing in the gap, but the gap at this point is $1.6 trillion a year.
Recently I obtained a copy of Tricontinental magazine issue 67, October 1971. This issue was dedicated to the memory of Che and is full of lengthy excerpts from Che's speeches, articles, and essays, and has various pictures of Che and different peoples fighting and protesting.   As many people may not know Tricontinental was very popular in the late 1960s until the late 1970s, was distributed around the world, and helped promote the Cuban Revolution, anti-colonial revolts (theory and practice), and armed struggle in general, especially among North Americans.   What is particularly interesting about this issue is that I came across a sentence in the last article, an excerpt from Che's speech to the International Brigades of Voluntary Work on Sept 30, 1960. Specifically Che said: "What I can tell you is that the Cuban conditions under imperialist oppression and under the oppression of its internal puppets, left the Cuban people no solution other than the voice of guns."   This of course immedi ...
Turns out China isn't just making cheap T-shirts and keychains for North Americans — it's making pollution for them, too.
North Americans this weekend and SWC Miami next weekend/week... May the stress control begin...
The air pollution in Chinese cities is legendary; when I was there recently you could barely see across Tiananmen Square. The traffic is like none North Americans have ever seen as well; Six rings of highways in Beijing, every road completely jammed with cars at all hours of the day. Then there is the problem of parking all those cars, there is just nowhere to put them all. That's why this car sharing system from Kandi Technologies Group makes so much sense. KTG makes a little Smart-car like electric car that can go 75 miles at up to 50 MPH. They store the cars in giant vertical vending machines that deliver the car on demand. They rent for $3.25 per hour. It is modelled after Hangzhou's bike share system, the largest in the world. People aspire to an enclosed vehicle that can carry their families and stuff safely instead of piling on to scooters. The cities are dense enough to support vending machines close enough to where people live.
Costa Rica has been a top retirement destination for more than three decades.

All in all 2013 was a better year. Wife is still healthy and cancer free. She did her first show post cancer, won, and did North Americans in Pittsburgh and placed 6th out of 17. So proud of her! Without her I would be nothing. I love you Danelle. Reconnected with my best friend from college, Doug White. My best friend/best man in my wedding had a baby boy last night. Love you Shawn & Abby!! Made new friends, got rid of some acquaintances. Realized family doesn't have to have the same DNA as yourself. Also doing what is right for me and my wife is better than what is expected from the crowd. Looking forward to what 2014 will bring. Never looking for a miracle, but always have hope that all will be well and good things happen to good people. Hope everyone has a happy and safe new year!o
• elf • Pronunciation: elf • Hear it! Part of Speech: Noun Meaning: A mythological fairy looking like a small person with pointy ears and a reputation for making mischief. We should not confuse elves with leprechauns and envision them in green suits like Will Ferrell in the movie Elf. Notes: Much too rarely do we meet a word in English that is spelled exactly as it is pronounced. Today's Good Word is among those rarities. Remember, more than one elf are elves, though someone like an elf is elfish who may behave elfishly. Elvish is a language invented by J. R. R. Tolkien for his imaginative novels, such as Lord of the Rings. There is no evidence supporting the claim that elves actually spoke this language. In Play: Although mythical, elves come in very handy, especially to children: "No, mommy, it wasn't me. A mischievous little elf came into my bedroom while I was asleep and spilled the milk on the floor." Today, North Americans more and more think in terms of elves making toys for Santa Claus: "Dad ...

Kim Kardashian's Psoriasis Kimberly Noel Kardashian, one of the most visible women in the United States today, suffers from psoriasis, a skin disease that causes raised red patches with silvery scales. Three percent of North Americans or more than eight million people have this hereditary condition. Kardashian is a fashion designer, model and actress and is most famous as a star in the reality television series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians." In 2010, she was named the highest-paid reality television personality, earning about $6 million that year. She was born in Los Angeles on October 21, 1980. At age 19, she eloped with music producer Damon Thomas. Prior to her divorce from him in 2003, she began dating singer Ray J. In August 2011, Kardashian married basketball player Kris Humphries in a wedding produced for television. After only 72 days of marriage, she filed for divorce which was granted in June 2013. She started to date rapper Kanye West in April 2012, gave birth to their daughter North West in ...

here is no language more powerful than the language of music. Music crosses all cultural and linguistic barriers. You will find people in Asia appreciating the music of Bach, Mozart, or any number of European composers. You will see North Americans choosing Indian ballads over their own local selections. And, even in the heart of Africa, you will find indigenous tribes singing and dancing to the music of the Western pop heroes. In Africa, certain tribes even use the music of such composers as Jimi Hendrix in their Voodoo rituals since the beat and atmospheres found in his work, and that of other rock musicians, so closely resemble the rhythmic style of the native jungle groove. Rock is equally suitable for inducing the right atmosphere for the ritual dances and religious ceremonies. Influencing the Emotions Music, of all the art forms, speaks most loudly to the emotional faculties. We react to music on the sensory modal level of functioning. Music is heard in the part of the brain that receives the stimul ...

This is from *** I thought I knew everything a Christian could know about the Muslim religion but this is totally unknown to me. Unreal information and it explains so much. And this practice will never end because Mohammed married his first cousin according to the Koran. 1400 Years of IN-BREEDING This is something that is so obvious, no one ever thinks of it. (By a Lockheed contract training manager/pilot) During the pilot transition program with the KV-107 and C-130 with Lockheed, we found that most Saudi pilot trainees had very limited night vision, even on the brightest of moonlit nights. Their training retention rate was minimal, including maintenance personnel. Some had dim memories and had to be constantly reminded of things that were told to them the day before. Needless to say, an American, British or any other western instructor gets burned out pretty quick. It actually took Muslim C-130 pilots years before they could fly in the dark safely, and then would be reluctant to leave the lights of a ...
This was shown on 60 minutes a few weeks ago. Disgusting ! Starkist Tuna is now owned by Korea, and is in big conflict with the U.S. concerning quality, safety, and records, which Korea refuses to produce. I read several articles on Google about this, and even one that was defending the eating of tilapia said to avoid the fish that came from China . Also, I had just returned home from buying Albertson's 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen tilapia for the price of one. Sure enough, on the top of the bags, it read "farm raised", and on the bottom in small print it said, " China ". read all the way down... I recently saw a Food inspector on TV... He said he had lived overseas and he had seen the filthy conditions their foods are raised and processed in. It is enough to make you throw up.

SIOUX NATION The Sioux are Native American and First Nations people in North America. The term can refer to any ethnic group within the Great Sioux Nation or any of the nation's many language dialects. Their territory covers some 200,000 km2 in the present day state of South Dakota and neighboring states. The Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nation (also known as the Great Sioux Nation) descends from of the original inhabitants of North America and can be divided into three major linguistic and geographic groups: Lakota (Teton, West Dakota), Nakota (Yankton, Central Dakota) and Dakota (Santee, Eastern Dakota). The total number of native North Americans is approximately 1.5 million, of which around 100,000 are Lakota. They reside near the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota. The Sioux maintain many separate tribal governments scattered across several reservations and communities in North America: in the Dakotas, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Montana in the United States; and in Manitoba, southern Saskatchewan and Alber ...

Nigeria's Golden Eaglets got their FIFA under 17 World Cup underway with a routing of defending champions,beating Mexico 6-1 in their first game of the tournament. Kelechi Iheanacho was the stand-out performer for Nigeria scoring four goals that helped coach Manu Garba's team thump the North Americans. Nigeria started poorly,struggling to pull together a good string of passes much in contrast to the Mexicans who were better with their intentions. But the Golden Eaglets settled,much helped with the goal scored by Iheanacho after he was set up by Isaac Success to open the scores for Nigeria. And in the 40th minute Iheanacho with an imposing strike,announced his name further with a composed finish to make the scores 2-0. Just a minute after Nigeria's second goal,Mexico pulled one back through Ulises Jaimes who showed great composure as well to make the score 1-2. Nigeria kicked off the second half where they stopped in the first,taking firm control of the game as they added further goals to underly their sup ...
Examining the Reputation of Columbus " In October, we honor Christopher Columbus, who opened the Atlantic slave trade and launched one of the greatest waves of genocide known in history." Christopher Columbus An Essay by Jack Weatherford Christopher Columbus' reputation has not survived the scrutiny of history, and today we know that he was no more the discoverer of America than Pocahontas was the discoverer of Great Britain. Native Americans had built great civilizations with many millions of people long before Columbus wandered lost into the Caribbean. Columbus' voyage has even less meaning for North Americans than for South Americans because Columbus never set foot on our continent, nor did he open it to European trade. Scandinavian Vikings already had settlements here in the eleventh century, and British fisherman probably fished the shores of Canada for decades before Columbus. The first European explorer to thoroughly document his visit to North America was the Italian explorer Giovanni Caboto, who ...
Studies have shown that Queen Victoria lived for almost a thousand years. By studies, I mean the vernacular of colonials. I have long noticed, to my great amusement, that for North Americans at least, the word "Victorian" refers to anything predating the First World War. I have heard many such charming remarks as, "I love Downton Abbey, especially the Victorian costumes" or "When you go to the Jane Austen festival, do you wear Victorian dresses?" I do not want to be like that English woman who bit my brother's head off for calling the stone manor house a cottage, but I thought I might just clarify a few things in case you don't know. I assume most of you do know, in which case, I write this so that you have something to which you can direct people when you haven't the time or the inclination to tell them why they don't love all that Victorian stuff in "The Tudors." Eras in English history are mostly named after the monarch reigning at the time. Queen Victoria became queen in 1837 and died in 1901. This is ...

Pablo Neruda 1904–1973 COMPLIMENTS OF THE POETRY FOUNDATION Pablo Neruda “No writer of world renown is perhaps so little known to North Americans as Chilean poet Pablo Neruda,” observed New York Times Book Review critic Selden Rodman. Numerous critics have praised Neruda as the greatest poet writing in the Spanish language during his lifetime, although many readers in the United States have found it difficult to disassociate Neruda’s poetry from his fervent commitment to communism. An added difficulty lies in the fact that Neruda’s poetry is very hard to translate; his works available in English represent only a small portion of his total output. Nonetheless, declared John Leonard in the New York Times, Neruda “was, I think, one of the great ones, a Whitman of the South.” Born Ricardo Eliezer Neftali Reyes y Basoalto, Neruda adopted the pseudonym under which he would become famous while still in his early teens. He grew up in Temuco in the backwoods of southern Chile. Neruda’s literary dev ...
In fact it is mostly North American people who call them Spanish, even though they are not. You may have already seen this thread. Mark Anthony (a New Yorker of Puerto Rican ancestry) is constantly called "Spanish" (or Mexican). There seems to be a lot of confusion in the US regarding this subject. As for Mexicans hijacking our heritage, the fact is they normally do not do it. It is again white North Americans who attribute the Mexicans what is not theirs. Even worst: they often attribute the Spaniards what is in fact Mexican. I can recall that, when Spain called back its troops from Iraq in 2004, there was a sort of campaign in the US to boycott Spanish products by not eating tacos, burrito, enchiladas... It is not Spain's reputation that suffers the most with these things. As a Spaniard, I find it a little bit annoying, but frequently amusing too. quote by " Marcial Born of the Iberians and Celts"

Get More Energy Without The Health Hazards of Coffee and Energy Drinks:- Everyone needs a little pick-me-up from time to time. Caffeine use has soared in the United States. Whether it is coffee, caffeinated soda, or energy drinks, people turn to caffeine in growing numbers to give them a boost. In fact, a 2005 issue of New Scientist reported that about 90 percent of North Americans say they use some form of caffeine every day. Even more surprising, a University of Nebraska Medical Center survey reported that 75 percent of the children they surveyed reported daily caffeine use (!). Are we raising kids to be caffeine addicts from the start? Caffeine is physically and psychologically addictive.

Are people from the United States the only ones who can call themselves Americans? A supervisor of mine from Argentina once challenged that notion, as he said he was a proud American before he became a citizen. He told me that he was South American, but that is still American. Why don't we call ourselves North Americans? There is North America, Latin America and South America, but somehow we feel ownership of being able to call ourselves Americans. What about Canadians (Mark Robinson, Mark Otter, Annie Vallieres), or Salvadoreans (Rick N Erica Herrera) or Bolivians (Diana Meneses Iwai, Carmen Lewis)? Do they not have the right to call themselves Americans?
I propose, right here and right now, that all those North Americans who support the idea to: 1. post about it here and 2. send an Email to "stockistswith the subject being "I would like to see Linda McCartney products in my region" and then write that you are from either the United States or Canada. Please don't write cities, here's why: they will pick where they want to launch LMF products in each country, and if it does well in each then they will expand their line of products to other cities. Once they officially begin distributing LMF products in each then you should proceed and mention what city you reside in. Remember there's strength in numbers (especially when they're organized). Therefore, I urge you to send that simple and quick Email as soon as you read this. As a last note, when you're writing the actual email try to add a deep meaning about spreading vegetarianism and also mention Meat Free Monday as carrying on the Message of Linda McCartney. *Also keep in mind that Linda was born and raised ...
FAT CELLS INCREASE INFLAMMATION It is known that even an extra 20 pounds can create an abundance of inflammation in the human body and lower overall immunity. Weight management is an important aspect of maintaining a balanced immune system and controlling inflammation. With over 50 percent of North Americans overweight, and an additional 15 percent or more classed as obese, public health care planners expect to see a tremendous increase in inflammatory diseases. Fat cells act like immune cells and secrete inflammatory factors (histamines and cytokines), especially during weight gain. The more fat cells you have, the more potential there is for inflammation. Plexus Slim and or Plexus Slim and accelerator can help balance blood sugar levels which will as a result help decrease inflammation by decreasing FAT. REMEMBER : FAT causes inflammation AND Inflammation causes FAT Pain does NOT always signal inflammation, but FAT does. If you are not losing weight as quickly as someone else in Plexus, and you are taki ...

The decline of cheap oil is inspiring increasing numbers of North Americans to achieve some measure of backyard food self-sufficiency. In hard times, the family can be greatly helped by growing a highly productive food garden, requiring little cash outlay or watering.
Honestly, what is it with North Americans and their carry-on baggage? I think this might be a new world record!
Thank you to The Hamilton Spectator for publishing the following article: believe they are doing the right thing but are working on hurting the overall welfare of our society.” And “ Without energy, we don’t eat. The activists say they can live for months on donated food, but somebody had to make and package that food using energy.” Enbridge encourages constructive dialogue about all our projects and we fully respect the right to peacefully protest. However we have a responsibility to ensure the safe and reliable operation of our energy services so that we, as North Americans, can live in heated homes, buy our groceries from local markets, access health care and drive vehicles during minus (insert really cold value here) winter blizzards. Do you agree?
How Many Right Ways Can There Be? - In 1939 the world was holding its collective breath in anticipation of what was shaping up to be another world war. "World war" means something different North Americans than it does to the rest of the world. For North Americans, "world war" meant, at worst, conscription, rationing and blackouts. For everybody else, it meant air raids, occupation forces, destroyed cities, refugee camps, reprisals and death on wholesale levels, up close and personal. But even from the perspective of North America, the prospect of another world war must have seemed like end-of-the-world stuff. The US was still suffering from a decade-long Depression - without the benefit of social programs, welfare, food stamps, Medicare, Medicaid etc. The veterans of the last war were in their late thirties to early fifties. Having witnessed the horrors of the European battlefields last time around when weaponry was relatively primitive, the horrors to come must have looked very much like what we might a ...
This has rattled me all week. It's not a new truth or new thought. But it has just stuck with me. Hard. Especially the last sentence. What are your thoughts? "When too many North Americans diet for a hobby, and too many Africans die for a meal. When our churches have building budgets and our sisters have dying children."
Yesterday was the "First day of summer" according to North American customs. Just heard this on BBC, yesterday was mid-summer. I agree with the latter's logic. 21 June was the longest day... North Americans, i think, in this regards, are "lazy": the so called "first day" of a season is actually mid-season.
Mallika Sherawat has offended all the North Americans including me with her fake and weird accent. Just another Western-wannabe!
FanQ-- respectful opinions ONLY!! BASHING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!!-- Hi I'm from Australia, and have seen a lot of posts about circumcision. Im not hating, I just really want to know (because clearly the majority on this page are North Americans) Why is everyone over there so obsessed with circumcision? Is it forced upon you straight after you give birth? Are you frowned upon if you don't? Because I have a 6 week old boy, and not once while I was pregnant nor after giving birth was circumcision ever mentioned.
One-third of the population is on a diet and one-third of the population is trying to maintain their weight at any one time.  North Americans are spending over thirty billion dollars each and every year on diets.  So why is the waistline of North Americans continuing to expand at an unprecedented rate?  One would have to conclude that diets simply do not work.  The main reason diets do not work is because that they are a short-term solution for a long-term problem.  The connotation is that if you are going to go on a diet, then sometime in the future you are going to come off that diet-usually returning to the unhealthy eating habits that created your weight problem in the first place.  So even if you are able to lose weight on your diet, statistics show that almost all of you will gain the weight back and more in a very short period of time. The answer is not in the most recent fad diet or weight-loss craze.  The answer is realizing that you must develop healthy lifestyles for a lifetime that ha ...
So, this was by far the worst competition for me, and my performance was absolute crap! I wasn't feeling well, started my routine for prejudging, and thought I was gonna puke. So, I walked off stage, just so I didn't puke on the judges. I gave myself some time and tried again. My energy was zapped, and I had NO power. I even improvised my routine bc I knew I wasn't going to be able to do some of my tricks. Even Tracey Greenwood told me that was the worst routine I've ever done. She said my face looked like I was going to hurl my guts out at any second. Lol. After that lousy performance, I got what I expected and deserved.last place. So, I'll move on to North Americans to hopefully more than make up for this. First, I need to get toy dr. I've definitely got something going on. Somethin ain't right for sure. However, it was great to see friends and make new friends! Also, a HUGE congratulations to my friend Lishia Dean for winning her class and getting her pro card! She earned it and more than deserv ...
The TV reality show, Big Brother Africa started its eighth season recently. This one is called “The Chase”. The show started in Europe and came to Africa three years later. Perhaps, that is one of the reasons it is still big here. However, the Big Brother Africa creators did something clever that the Europeans and North Americans didn’t — they turned it into a rivalry between the African countries from which the contestants are drawn. That provides the emotion that keeps the show alive in the continent. But that would not have been enough, because the viewership is probably no longer the reason Big Brother is alive. It is the voting. When we Africans get a cellphone in our hands, we can’t stop talking or texting. The record numbers of Africans who vote every week to evict or help keep in their favourite contestant puts millions of dollars into the pockets of Big Brother and mobile phone companies from the premium charged on text messages. So Big Brother Africa has become like a casino — the ** ...

6/11/2013 Tuesday in the desert A peaceful day. No wind, no sandstorms and the children were in school and then picked up by Mara so no screaming and no chaos to disturb the quiet of the desert. The sky was not just blue it was a deep blue undisturbed by even the slightest puff of white. We now have about 15 volunteers from all over the world including Koreans, South Africans, Swedes, Danes, North Americans, South Americans, English and Israelis and they work and play very hard but what they don’t seem to get is any formal education about the area that they have come to “visit”. I wonder if this is true of all the other kibbutzim in Southern Israel, or for that matter all the towns in Southern Israel where Anglos are making Aliyah. If so, it is a shame and need not be as Lotan has a resident that I have written about before, Michael Livni, who is an expert on the Arava and every volunteer and every Anglo who is new to the area should try to take one of his “nature” hikes during which he regales ...
by Cleve Hicks So we content ourselves to sit and watch as the majestic forests of the beautiful country of Liberia fall to a horde of buzzing chainsaws. With these ancient forests will vanish the largest remaining population of Western chimpanzees (Oscar's family from the Disney film). No longer will the percussive thumps of stone tools manufactured by these wily primate nut *** resonate throughout the primeval green Eden. Only so that Europeans, Asians, and North Americans can soak up the ambiance in fancy mahogany-floored pubs. To those who shrug their shoulders and say that its unfortunate, but the Liberian people need jobs and money, the following article about the timber rush following the civil war is quite relevant: 'Those involved include loggers, who reportedly worked with the Oriental Timber Company (OTC), which it said trafficked arms, committed human rights abuses and felled large swathes of forest (under Taylor’s regime) during Liberia’s brutal civil war.'

Our friends from Carnival have told us a few interesting differences between American cruisers and Australian cruisers onboard the Carnival Spirit- - Aussies prefer their coffee nice and strong, cappuccino orders are up 600% from ships in North America. - More family time, more gym time and far less sun time than North Americans - Aussie palates are different (ok, between you and me they’re healthier) than Americans: Salmon ordering 10kg more per day. - The lamb has been the favourite dish so far. We don’t serve lamb on the ships in North America.– Aussies order more salads and 25% fewer desserts than North Americans.   Aussie beverage preferences are very European: – Aussies drink far more wine than North Americans, they are three times more likely to enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner than North Americans who prefer mixed drinks. . – For North Americans a tropical holiday means fruity rum drinks with an umbrella, while Aussies prefer Jack Daniels, Jim Beam and Long Island Iced Teas…along wi ...
Two lucky breaks in half an hour. I was looking at Waterlooplein and thought: Wow, it's busy. Better leave my bike here at Jodenbreestraat and walk the rest. Then I got to City Hall. (I believe that's what you North Americans call it?) And there was a bunch of police there, with literally a File of cyclists waiting behind them, ready to get a 50 euro fine. Which I didn't get, because I'd left my bike behind, and I didn't even realise cycling was forbidden at Waterlooplein on market days. Then I got my new passport. And it's over 50 euros which is already ridiculous. But when you have to get a new one because of self inflicted damage to it, you get a 40+ euro fine on top of it. So nearly a hundred euros. But I got the rookie at the desk, who was sat next to the girl who knew it all, but apparently he didn't know all the rules yet himself, so he skipped the fine, and I got to pay the fifty something. 50+40 euros I would have to (unjustly) pay today, and Didn't. Not bad. Good luck everyone! And God bless.

CRUISELINES SCALE BACK EUROPE ITINERARIES FOR 2014 There was a time when everyone who's anyone cruised the Mediterranean or Northern Europe each and every summer. These were the ports of the rich and famous that offered the best sights devoted to history, architecture, art, culture, and shopping. But times are changing and it's clear that European ports will be much sleepier as soon as the summer season of 2014. That's because many lines have reduced their capacity in the region or even pulled out of the cruise season completely. What's caused this disruption in the traditional European cruise season? A few things. A weak global economy means that Europeans have pulled back on vacation spending. Meanwhile, expensive airfare from US and Canadian cities is stopping many North Americans from booking these itineraries. With passenger rates dwindling, cruise lines had to make the tough choice to reduce capacity or skip the Mediterranean and other European ports completely next summer. Who's Leaving? 1. Carniva ...
Why Everyone Needs a Home Business By Sandy Botkin This may be a decade of tremendous corporate profits and economic growth, but for the vast majority of North Americans, the `90s were a dismal, uphill climb. And many economists believe that this next, new millennium won't be getting better any time soon. Why? Changing business and government attitudes are the reason. There has seemingly been more anti-business legislation in the last decade than in any other this century. Stronger employment and labor laws, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, safety laws, much tougher laws for discharging workers, more liabilities for lawsuits, Disabilities Act (which is creating immense numbers of lawsuits), along with higher minimum wages and fringe benefits. Just reading this list is exhausting. While these acts have beneficial and protective aspects, they have also encouraged businesses to move their facilities. That "sucking sound" popularized by Ross Perot is not just down to Mexico, but elsewhere as well. Th ...

"A Memorial Day Tribute to Spiritual Warriors" 2 Tim. 2:3 - “You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” Years ago, during a business trip to Dallas, I took the opportunity to spend time with my close friend and former roommate, Gary Cantrell and his family. Gary and I caught up on our lives and families and reminisced about our days at West Point, our buddies from the Class of ‘69, and our tours of duty as Army officers. Most of our class served in Vietnam and saw combat duty. Gary and I were no exceptions. Gary served as an Infantry Company Commander with the 1st Cavalry Division, and I served as a District Senior Advisor to a South Vietnamese Regional Force. I received extensive combat training including airborne, ranger, officer basic, advisory assistance, and Vietnamese language training, which proved invaluable in combat where the enemy was intent on killing my troops and me. Years of preparation and training imparted the ability to issue orders and make clear decis ...
On This Day In Music History...what went down was REALLY awesome! :) 1957, Buddy Holly and the Crickets released their first record, 'That'll Be The Day.' A UK No.1 and US No.3 hit. The song had its genesis in a trip to the movies by Holly, Allison and Sonny Curtis in June 1956. The John Wayne film The Searchers was playing. Wayne's frequently-used, world-weary catchphrase, "that'll be the day" was the Inspiration behind the song. It was also the first song to be recorded by The Quarrymen, the skiffle group that subsequently became The Beatles. 1957, 1963, The Beatles, touring the UK with Roy Orbison played at the Capitol Cinema, Cardiff in Wales. 1963, The album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan was released by Columbia in the USA. Establishing Dylan as a leader in the singer-songwriter genre and a supposed spokesman for the youth-orientated protest movement, it reached No.22 in the US charts and No.1 in the UK charts. The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan showcased Dylan's songwriting talent for the first time and pr ...

New ways to help autistic wanderers (www.starnewsonline.com) - North America only it would appear According to a press release by Autism Speaks: “A new coalition of six national autism nonprofit organizations, Autism Wandering Awareness Alerts Response Education (AWAARE), has launched its website (www.awaare.org) in a collaborative effort to prevent wandering-related injuries and deaths, apparently on the rise in the autism community. Coalition member organizations are AutismOne, Autism Speaks, the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, the HollyRod Foundation, the National Autism Association, and Talk About Curing Autism.” Why do we need to know about groups such AWAARE? Just in the last month cases surrounding the wandering of children with autism have made national news, and AWAARE can assist in preventing such events. Take, for example, a recent story by Good Morning America Correspondent Russell Goldman, who writes: “Within hours one day in April, two children went missing hundreds of miles apa ...

Celebrate Memorial Day: Dear Heavenly Father, As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of how they have followed in the footsteps of your son, our Savior, Jesus. Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection. We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives. May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day and may they trust in the Lord's mighty power to accomplish each task. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support. In the holy and everlasting name of Jesus the Christ. Amen.

This was posted to a forum I moderate: Here in the City of Bayonne are several monuments dedicated to veterans of various wars. These memorials are crafted of granite or marble or bronze. But each is infused with the blood of heroes - men and women who gave their lives on land and sea so the rest of us might live free. The vast majority of the fallen are strangers. But for many of us, these heroes have faces. Some we know only from yellowing family photographs, others from stories passed down from generation to generation. Our family has a great-grandfather who is buried on a battlefield in France - his grandfather, who died at Bull Run, is buried in Gettysburg. Family or stranger, on this day we remember their sacrifice. On this day a widow will kneel in silent prayer, a child will be waving a flag, an aging veteran of some long past war will bow his head in tribute to lost comrades. Multiply these scenes to the thousands, or perhaps hundreds of thousands and you will see the true meaning of Memorial Day ...

HITLER USES THE RED HERRING STRATEGY TO COME TO POWER December 22, 2012 - “What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences. “I am a witness to history. “I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching. “We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls. She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers. “Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.” No so.

Gustavo Prato's Thanksgiving Testimony Venezuela UBF May 25, 2013 GLORY TO GOD! Praise God who gave US visas to all 11 UBF Venezuelan members (including my wife and my little son) who attended the May 17 interview. That makes a total of 21 participants from Venezuela UBF who are confirmed along with 3 Venezuelan missionaries in Panama (Josue, Maiker, Victoria), and one Venezuelan missionary in Chicago (Helen). This will be the largest number of UBF Venezuelan participants ever in a UBF International Conference in another country. Especially, I can see the love of God that helped me to forget past failures (I was rejected for a US visa three times before) and to know that with Him all things are possible. When we knew about the conference, M.

He writes a great blog called "Renewed Cities" and today's was titled "A Virtual Salute!" Since today is MEMORIAL DAY and I couldn't say it any better than he has, I am posting today's blog from Otto. = As technology advances we risk falling into the trap of “virtual deeds,” the exercise of brushing up against reality but not fully engaging. Yesterday our pastor presented a masterful Memorial Day video salute. Combined with patriotic anthems and appropriate choruses, the worship service was moving and the pastoral prayer focused on thanksgiving for the unselfish service our military shares and implored the Lord to overshadow those in harm’s way and their family. It was excellent! However, Dover Air Force Base is 30 minutes North of where we observed Memorial Day. The harsh reality is, military aircraft land at Dove ...

Was an avid hunter as a kid and joined the Marines in 1967. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps during Vietnam and holds the record for number of confirmed kills for Marine snipers, exceeding that of legendary Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock. In just 16 months he killed 103 enemies and another 216 kills were listed as probable’s by the military, only because it was too risky at the time to search the bodies for documents. When he left the Marines he told no-one of his of his role during the conflict and only a few fellow Marines knew of his assignments. It was nearly 20 years before somebody wrote a book detailing his amazing skills as a sniper. Mawhinney came out of anonymity because of this and became a lecturer in sniper schools. He was once quoted saying “it was the ultimate hunting trip: a man hunting another man who was hunting me. Don’t talk to me about hunting lions or elephants; they don’t fight back with rifles and scopes. I just loved it. I ate it up.” A routinely deadly shot from distan ...

  Operation Rösselsprung (Knight's move) was a combined airborne and ground assault by the German XV Mountain Corps and their allies on the Supreme Headquarters of the Yugoslav Partisans located at the town of Drvar in western Independent State of Croatia (of which modern-day Bosnia and Herzegovina was a part) during World War II. The operation was launched on 25 May 1944, and was aimed at capturing or killing Marshal Josip Broz Tito and destroying the headquarters, support facilities and co-located Allied military missions. It is associated with the Seventh Enemy Offensive (Serbo-Croatian: Sedma neprijateljska ofenziva) in Yugoslav history. The airborne assault itself is also known as the Raid on Drvar (Desant na Drvar).[1] Operation Rösselsprung was a coup de main operation involving direct action by a parachute and glider-borne assault force based on 500th SS Parachute Battalion and their link-up with ground forces converging on Drvar. The airborne assault was preceded by heavy bombing of the town b ...
Memorial Day History- Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) — established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Maj. Gen. John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. The first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The ceremonies centered around the mourning-draped veranda of the Arlington mansion, once the home of Gen. Robert E. Lee. Various Washington officials, including Gen. and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant, presided over the ceremonies. After speeches, children from the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Orphan Home and members of the GAR made their way through the cemetery, strewing flowers on both Union and Confederate graves, reciting prayers and singing hymns. ...
America Inc: Corporate interests run US government Get short URL Published time: October 20, 2010 20:59 Edited time: October 28, 2010 03:17 Tags Corruption, Economy, Politics, USA A new Gallop poll indicated Americans feel the US government has too much power, yet there is very little public outrage. While in France the people are taking to the streets rioting. Americans are currently more passive and complacent, but that could be changing. “As the pension funds are taxed, as part of the pension funds are seized, as the social security cost of living increase is cut, as all of this happens we are seeing more and more people demonstrate and protest,” said radio host Alex Jones. He argued that the people should not only fear the government, but the corporate machine the fuels it. “The federal government is the consortium of tyranny, through which the Fortune 100 that control the government are looting and robbing our nation,” he said. “We’re just going through this same process of corporate corr ...

Early history of Memorial Day: Enjoy! Civil War Veterans in Ortonville, Minnesota on the Fourth of July, 1880 - also called "Decoration Day" prior to the Uniform Monday Holiday Act almost a century later. The practice of decorating soldiers' graves with flowers is an ancient custom.[6] Soldiers' graves were decorated in the U.S. before[7] and during the American Civil War. A claim was made in 1906 that the first Civil War soldier's grave ever decorated was in Warrenton, Virginia on June 3, 1861, implying the first Memorial Day occurred there.[8] There is authentic documentation that women in Savannah, Georgia decorated soldiers' graves in 1862.[9] In 1863, the cemetery dedication at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania was a ceremony of commemoration at the graves of dead soldiers. Local historians in Boalsburg, PA, claim that ladies there decorated soldiers' graves on July 4, 1864.[10] As a result, Boalsburg promotes itself as the birthplace of Memorial Day.[11] Following President Abraham Lincoln's assassination in ...

Douglas MacArthur's Speech to Congress Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, and distinguished Members of the Congress: I stand on this rostrum with a sense of deep humility and great pride- humility in the wake of those great American architects of our history who have stood here before me, pride in the reflection that this forum of legislative debate represents human liberty in the purest form yet devised. Here are centered the hopes and aspirations and faith of the entire human race. I do not stand here as advocate for any partisan cause, for the issues are mental and reach quite beyond the realm of partisan consideration. They must be resolved on the highest plane of national interest if our course is to prove sound and our future protected. I trust, therefore, that you will do me the justice of receiving that which I have to say as solely expressing the considered viewpoint of a fellow American. I address you with neither rancor nor bitterness in the twilight of life with but one purpose in mind- to serve my c ...

At a March 23, 2005 Waco, Texas meeting, attended by George Bush, Mexico’s Vincente Fox, and Canada’s Paul Martin, the Security and and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) was launched, also known as the North American Union (NAU). It was a secretive Independent Task Force of North America agreement – a group organized by the Canadian Council of Chief Executives (CCCE), the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations, and CFR with the following aims: – circumventing the legislatures of three countries and their constitutions; – suppressing public knowledge or consideration; and – proposing greater US, Canadian and Mexican economic, political, social, and security integration with secretive working groups formed to devise non-debatable, not voted on agreements to be binding and unchangeable. In short – a corporate coup d’etat against the sovereignty of three nations enforced by hard line militarization to suppress opposition.

My father's war story & yes he lived. Up to his neck in water in the engine room (last one out). He & the Capt. transferred bodies to the sister ship. Between 3 October and 11 December 1942 Chevalier made three convoy escort voyages: one coastwise, with tankers; a second, from Bermuda to Norfolk, Virginia and with one of the first reinforcement convoys for North Africa. Sailing from Norfolk 17 December, Chevalier reached Efate, New Hebrides 22 January 1943. On 27 January she sortied with Task Force 18 (TF 18) to cover the movement of troop transports to Guadalcanal. On 29 and 30 January Chevalier joined in protective antiaircraft fire as her force came under intensive Japanese air attack in the Battle of Rennell Island. Chevalier operated on patrol from Efate, and after 14 February from Espiritu Santo. On 7 May 1943 she escorted three minelayers as they mined Blackett Strait, and Kula Gulf, Solomon Islands. The next night three Japanese destroyers, Kuroshio, Oyashio, and Kagero, ran into the minefield and ...
i AM SURE YOU WILL AGREE WITH ME THAT THIS ONE MAKES FAR MORE SENSE... To the citizens of the United States of North America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: In light of your immediate failure to financially manage yourselves and therefore not able to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.) Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy). Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections. Your Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated sometime next year to determine whether any of you noticed. To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect: - 1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words ...

I just want the universe and your most powerful Angels to know how much I care about my planet. Amen
Botany From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Plant biology" redirects here. For the journal, see Functional Plant Biology. For other uses, see Botany (disambiguation) and Botanic. Pinguicula grandiflora commonly known as a Butterwort Botany, plant science(s), or plant biology (from Ancient Greek βοτάνη botane, "pasture, grass, or fodder" and that from βόσκειν boskein, "to feed or to graze"), is a discipline of biology and the science of plant life.[1][2][3] Traditionally, the science included the study of fungi, algae, and viruses. A person engaged in the study of botany is called a botanist. Botany covers a wide range of scientific disciplines including structure, growth, reproduction, metabolism, development, diseases, chemical properties, and evolutionary relationships among taxonomic groups. Botany began with early human efforts to identify edible, medicinal and poisonous plants, making it one of the oldest branches of science. Nowadays, botanists study about 400,000 species of living or ...

The American Indians had a similar oral culture. At the time of contact the bands of North America spoke more than five hundred mutually unintelligible languages, representing perhaps the greatest linguistic diversity in the history of the world. Early negotiators of treaties recognized how important the orator was for this world. Gilbert Imlay’s 1792 description of the western territory of North America remarked on the Indians’ "talents of natural eloquence." A generation later, Hugh Murray observed how the Indians of New York State had mastered all the tricks of European diplomacy. He marveled even more at the oratorical skills of the Iroquois leader. When the chief of the Iroquois spoke to the French governor, he informed him in no uncertain terms that he spoke for all the five nations. ‘The function of oratory among the five nations," Murray noted, "had become a separate profession, held in equal or higher honour than that of the warrior.

Every day GEJ shows his desperacy in retaining the presidency.what did Gov Rotimi Amaechi?
Memorial Day this year I am focusing on a family member that will soon be buried with full honors. He was killed in Action and it is sort of shocking at the time it has taken for the Government to release the body. MSG Olen Berry Williams, K Co 31 INF Rgt 7 INF DIV, MIA 1950-12-12 North Korea. He was born in 1913 in Chilton County AL, he Joined the Service in 8 June 1940 and served until 1953 when declared KIA on 31 December 1953.

SUNDAY'S PLANT WALK IN LARGO will highlight some unsual edible and medicinal plants that include: - LONGLEAF PINE - The pines here are truly magestic and grand. Some that I'll show you exude large masses of resin. I'll discuss some of the many uses of pine resin. - EPAZOTE - is found growing very well in huge large clumps, especially along the west border trail. This Mexican culinary/medicinal herb is often added fresh to bean dishes to remove flatulence. - PAWPAWS - some of these are fruiting. This is a fascinating edible wild, native fruit that should be known by all Floridians. - WEEPING YAUPON HOLLIES - North America's highest plant in caffeine makes what is very similar to South America's mate, which is also a type of wild holly. These trees have been planted here, but are native to the area. - BLACKBERRIES - Some wild blackberries are scattered here and there at this park, but it is the large patch on the western trail that impresses me the most. - LIZARD'S TAIL - this very dearly held medicinal pla ...

Today I am honored to attend a service at Valhalla Memory Gardens to honor those brave men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our great country. The program will feature Gov. Mike Pence, VFW Post 604 Commander Joe Hardin, Navy Corpsman Rick Salazar, Monroe County Honor Guard, Southern Indiana Pipe and Drum Corps, Bloomington Community Band, singer Dan Narducci, Bloomington High School North Chorus, Boy Scout Troop 136 Color Guard and Cub Scout Joseph Hardin. 1.3 million. That’s roughly the total number of Americans who have given their lives for this nation since that very first shot in April 1775 in Lexington, Massachusetts that began the American Revolutionary War. To imagine that number more clearly, consider that if you could utter the name of each of these heroes—at one name per minute—it would take you two and a half years to say them all. Nonstop. May we all take the time to appreciate the service of our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. Their bravery and commitmen ...

Malvin Gray Johnson (28 January 1896-1934) an African american painter, born and raised in Greensboro, North Carolina. He was "the youngest member of the Harlem Renaissance artists His work is often labeled as Symbolic Abstractionist, being one of the first African American artists to paint in the Cubist style. Like many other artists, Johnson worked on the Federal Arts Project during the Depression. His work was displayed in many of the Harmon Exhibits in 1929 and the early thirties. In 1931 some of his work was hung in the Anderson gallery and the following year, the Salon of America displayed several of his paintings. In 1928 he won a prize at a Harmon exhibition, and in 1929 he won the Otto H. Kahn prize for painting. "Johnson's painting 'Swing low sweet chariot' was awarded the 1929 exhibition prize for best picture in the second Harmon group show."

Here is the full version by Judge Rusty Johnston. Thanks Rusty for sharing this fine speech with our group...

Johnston Circuit Judge, 13th Judicial Circuit © 2013 Joseh S. Johnston May be used for non-profit organizations Friends, officers, distinguished guest. It is always nice to be furloughed from Mobile Government Plaza and get out in the real world and see my friends in blue. Besides wading through the water from the leaking roof down there, it has been a strange year at Government Plaza. For example when I recently empanelled a jury when a woman came up to the bench and said that she could not serve on the jury. I said, why can't you serve, you are over 19, have no felony convictions, your residency is correct why in the world can't you serve?" "It is because of my profession, that is the problem". "Why would your profession affect your abilit ...
From The Desk of Brother to The Light: Memorial Day, Salute to all Veterans from all campaigns who served. God Bless you. Many may take this day lightly, the respect factor I have as an Honorably Discharged Veteran who served abroad. I am humbled. I have many friends who never saw home again and those who did very few are still alive now. It has been many years since his passing, but a very special shout out to the family of Robert Dove, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to his family. He is and shall always be my best friend. We served overseas, through training, we were like the wonder twins, Funny, serious. Unfortunately my friend did not die in battle, but by racists hands in his home state. The many dangers we faced together, seen and unseen. To die at the hands of the very people we swore to defend. These actions may seem like they have been forgotten, but it is never forgotten. We were taught, Honor, Discipline, Respect, Duty, Loyalty. These things I carry with me everyday. So On this day A Big Shout ou ...

A comment I just made on a link on Larry Updike's wall: Well, John, I had an opinion, but it got removed. I made the assumption that if I reposted it that it would be removed again, but since my comment on censorship is still here (and far more controversial than what I said first), maybe I'll restate my opinion and see if they respect free speech enough to leave it here this time: "Your wall is starting to read like the Sun's comment section, Larry. The CBC ain't dead, but she ain't doing well, if this is any indication." I don't really understand what's so controversial about that statement in the first place, really. It's nothing more than an expression of dismay at the cultural shift which has taken place at the CBC recently - I'm not exactly sure what would motivate Mr Updike to remove *that*, and then leave a post which points out his resorting to censorship and addresses him with a medieval insult. Maybe he finds the accusation that he is a solipsist who can't handle the truth a little less cutting ...
Every year at Memorial Day, people thank me for my service in the military. But Memorial Day isn’t for me. Yes, I am a veteran, but Veterans Day, not Memorial Day, is the day for all veterans. I'll write more about Veterans Day in about five months. For now, let's look at Memorial Day.

Today I am very reflective about my generation who fought in Vietnam. I personally knew six (6) people killed in action there. The thing that is so heartbreaking is that the Tet Offensive in 1968 won the War militarily for us. It was the greatest American Military Victory on the battlefield since the Battle of the Bulge. The North Vietnamese Commander had already given the order for his forces to stand down and come home because the war was lost. General Giap confirmed this in a 1986 interview. So, why did we lose the war and why did my six friends lose their lives? Well, it was because the national press portrayed it as a disastrous defeat by our forces and thousands of demostrators then hit the streets with "End the War Now" signs. The North Vietnamese saw all the turmoil in the streets in the US and all the negativity by the Press and Media and saw American Politicians folding up and they decided they would win the war politically which they did. We gave the war away after we won it. And the ...

Awaked at 4:41 am by bed shaking pretty hard! When it stopped I went to see if Arne ( who was snoring earlier so I left the room) had a similar experience. He said he thought I was getting back into bed and causing it then opened his eyes and realized it was the earthquake! 5.6 about 70 miles north of us. In other news at 5 am a large dark colored frog was knocking on the sliding glass door in the bedroom. Arne later got up and asked him to leave!!!

Closing out DAY 5 of Ruth's saga. Memorial Day 2013.6:00 AM Today, Americans will remember with grateful hearts the multiplied thousands who have paid the ultimate price to keep our nation free. And, the Foth family will remember a week of heroes in our own lives. Beginning with a young Estes Park, CO police officer, running into a room at the moment of our greatest need and dropping to his knees...to begin chest compressions on Ruth. Some days from now, we hope to thank him in person. But, until then, we'll reflect with gratitude on his calling, his training, his timing, his skill.and his gift of life to us. What some might see as "doing one's job," we choose to see as the hand of God!
Happy Memorial Day to everyone! American, Canadian, non North Americans! We all celebrate your past and present! Enjoy the day & reflect!

Why Obama Keeps Skipping Nigeria By Sam Nda-Isaiah Posted by Editor Last week, the White House announced that President Barack Obama would visit Africa between June 26 and July 3, 2013. He will be travelling with his lovely wife Michelle to Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. According to the statement, Obama will meet government officials as well as leaders from the business, civil society and youth groups. The White House further said that the visit will focus on strengthening economic growth, democratic institutions and African leadership. In July 2009, during Obama’s first term as president, he visited Ghana from where he addressed the African continent, and, in the process, obliquely threw a few barbs at Nigeria’s leaders. Is it not curious that the United States president shall be visiting Africa to discuss business and his itinerary does not include the continent’s second largest economy that is even expected to take over as the largest within a decade? And do we think the president of the wo ...

I briefly talked about memorial day to my 1st and 2nd grade advanced conversation class. I explained that some soldiers are good and some bad, how the "bosses" in some country are good and other ones bad. Why people go to war (I have several reasons), and how God never intended for us to fight one another. I briefly mentioned that Japan and America "Fought Against" one another a long time ago but I emphasized that we are good friends now and that's the way all countries should be. I told them about how Japanese and American soldiers worked together to help the tsunami victims and showed them some pictures from operation tomodachi so that they can see that a soldier has many uses in this world other than fighting, but they understood very easily why soldiers are needed to stand up to "bad people". I wore my BDU top from when I was in the service. I haven't worn it in a while. My shirt (WWP) is from the wounded warrior program, give it a look at. All in all it was good.

Is the dreaded Asian carp swimming in Lake Erie again? It’s a mystery as big as the lake. The question terrifies several agencies in the U.S. and Canada, but one scientist says there is a strong likelihood it is back. “We have evidence that suggests the most likely explanation (about) how its environmental DNA got there (in Lake Erie) is because of the presence of live Asian carp,” said David Lodge, director of Notre Dame University’s Environmental Change Initiative in Indiana. Lodge said the area where positive samples of Asian carp were found, in the lake’s western basin, is where the last live fish was captured in 2000. “There are other explanations ... for how the DNA could have got there,” said Lodge. “They are possible, but not plausible.” According to Notre Dame’s Center for Aquatic Conservation, plants and animals shed cellular material (like traces of DNA) into their surrounding environment, and this material can be collected and analyzed. Environmental DNA extracted from wate ...

Should everyone have to serve at least two years in the military?
Today , I was fortunate enough to awaken and see another day , though it is cloudy , it is a great day . In my home there are no missals , no sporadic rifle fire , no suicide bombers , and no dictator telling me what to do . It is a great day . But , while I enjoy the day , and it being memorial day , I to ,understand that our troops deployed overseas , and those in training at home , are still working , along with our police and local first responders , they do not have the day off , nor were they off yesterday . Our military was defending people all over the globe with the hopes that someday , they to may enjoy the freedoms we here take for granted , I do not hate Islam , I can not tell the difference between , Sunni and Shiite Muslims , I cannot differentiate between a North Korean and a South Korean . I am am American . My hope is that someday , Iraqis and Koreans will be able to proclaim there Nation in the same manner , United in Peace . That all Syrians will be free to build a Nation free of dictat ...

Here's to George Smirl, a survivor of the Chinese attack on the Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War and who, without the Veterans Administration, might have been homeless: MARSHALLTOWN – Inside George Smirl’s 12-by-12-foot room at the Iowa Veteran’s Home, there’s a bed, a chair, a bureau and a television set. There’s also a cardboard box, half-filled with scarlet paper flowers – handmade by Smirl. “We make most of them during the winter,” said Smirl, a former Ames resident who said that he has lived at the veteran’s home for about three and one-half years. “I make them 50 at a time on my bed. “There are four ‘leaves’ that you put together for each poppy, and then you put them in a cluster of 25, like this,” he said, holding up a small bouquet. “You pack the clusters on the bottom of the box, lay down a sheet of paper and keep adding (flower clusters) until you get to 1,000.” The boxes of flowers then go into the basement of Heinz Hall, one of several buildings on the spr ...

Family Reunion in Seattle Many of us watched the progression of the Tokyo Devi Bhava on Chimes on Amritapuri.org. This was the last program in Japan before Amma would fly to Seattle and set foot on the North American continent once again. Excitement was mounting as most people had been waiting a year to see Amma again and others were planning to meet her for the first time. Some devotees have expressed that they can actually feel a shift of energy when Amma arrives in the USA. A small group of us flew from the Amma Center of New Mexico to Seattle on a late morning flight the day before she arrived. We were very exhilarated to be on the way to see Amma, leaving our normal worldly cares behind, ready to focus on the eternal spiritual values that Amma exemplifies. We also felt a little sad that more of our friends weren’t able to make the trip and remembered those who had rather sadly watched us load our bags and depart, while speeding us on our way with good wishes. We flew over the drought ridden West, n ...
After the storm, after the rain stopped pounding, / We stood in the doorway watching horses / Walk off lazily across the pasture’s hill. / We stared through the black screen,

I am sure if i went back far enough we have relatives who fought on the north and south during the Civil War. Have a great day .Mark
Think about your address and how it makes you unique! I live on planet earth, that separates my planet from all the other planets. I live on the North American continent which separates mine from the other 6. I live in the US which sep me from Canada. I live in CT which eliminates the other 49 states. I live in Wolcott which elim 168 other towns. I live on a certain street which elim all other streets in Wol. I have a house numb which eliminatesmy house from all other houses on that street. God wrote an address for His Son in 330 Messianic prophecies in the Old Test, some of which are beyond human manipulation ALL FULFILLED IN JESUS OF NAZARETH. Buddha, Mohammed, Zoroaster, Confucius etc, none have the credentials of Jesus Christ.
Anyone know what time the parade I Newport starts? Or what the route is?

Under democrats and Obama Rule America appears weak; which is a danger to world peace: During the Republican National Convention on Aug. 29, 2012, Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice posed a question in her speech to the American people: “Where does America stand?” “Indeed that is the question of the hour. Where does America stand? You see when the friends or foes alike don't know the answer to that question, unambiguously and clearly, the world is likely to be a more dangerous and chaotic place. Since World War II, the United States has had an answer to that question. We stand for free peoples and free markets. We will defend and support them. We will sustain a balance of power that favors freedom. I know too there is wariness. I know that it feels as if we have carried these burdens long enough. But we can only know that there is no choice, because one of two things will happen if we don't lead. Either no one will lead and there will be chaos, or someone will fill the vacuum who does n ...

Need more info about GMOs? I will be raising my voice against Monsanto owning our food supply and damaging our health with GMOs on Saturday May 25th. This is just part of why. Please join us. In talking about genetically modified food for years, I've only encountered two kinds of people: 1. People who don't know much about it and don't think about it, occasionally parroting back some media statement about how GMOs will feed an overpopulated world, and 2. People who have learned something about how GMOs work and are incredibly eager to get them out of our food supply. I haven't encountered anyone who is actually informed about the subject that feels it's a good idea that North Americans are by land large eating then unknowingly at every meal. Here's an awesome bit of musical activism that's informative and compelling on GM foods. I was pleased to download it on iTunes when I learned that some of the proceeds went to support the Institute for Responsible Technology GMO campaign. engineered foods have spread ...
More than 13 million people in Canada and the U.S. suffer from macular degeneration, and about half of all North Americans over the age of 80 have cataracts. From a nutritional standpoint, a large-scale research project conducted by the National Eye Institute has shown that there are several nutrients that help protect our eyes. The most important foods for preventing macular degeneration are ones that are rich in the antioxidants beta carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein and zeaxanthin ... plus zinc and omega-3 fats. Here’s a rundown of my top 10 picks: 1. Carrots Mom was right! Carrots are loaded with beta carotene, an antioxidant that helps reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts. Carrots can easily be added into salads and soups, and are always a great side veggie with lunch or dinner. You can also dip them in just about anything — salsa, hummus, guacamole, peanut butter and low-cal dressings. 2, 3 and 4. Bell peppers, broccoli and brussels sprouts Three B’s that provide a bla .. ...
"There appears no clear pattern of association between male circumcision and HIV prevalence—in 8 of 18 countries with data, HIV prevalence is lower among circumcised men, while in the remaining 10 countries it is higher." It seems highly unrealistic to expect that there will be no risk compensation. The South African National Communication Survey on HIV/AIDS, 2009 found that 15% of adults across age groups "believe that circumcised men do not need to use condoms". It is unclear if circumcised men are more likely to infect women. The only ever randomized controlled trial into male-to-female transmission showed a 54% higher rate in the group where the men had been circumcised: ABC (Abstinence, Being faithful, and especially Condoms) is the way forward. Promoting genital surgery seems likely to cost African lives rather than save them. Europeans don't circumcise, South Americans don't circumcise, Australians and New Zealanders used to circumcise but stopped, most North Americans don't circumcise. Why sh .. ...
I purposely waited till the end of this day to see if anyone would mention why May 23-25 is so important ... especially to North Americans -- and most especially Californians. But to my sadness, just like I already knew deep in my heart, NO ONE made any reference as why it is important that "AL" Latino Americanos know their "True" & beautifully rich Afro-Caribbean roots. Which leads me into how I found this incredible truth that has cataclysmic changed my life and increased my self-pride as a Latino Nicaraguense American. To whose honor is California the state named after? answer: QUEEN CALAIFIA Many, throughout history, have claimed that Queen Calafia was formerly known as Sara -- the blacker than soot little girl who traveled by sea with Mary Magdalene, Joseph & the Virgin Mary--mother of Christ--on a small row boat to France--to escape sure death after Jesus Christ died on the cross at the hands of the Roman Empire. Than later traveled to North America to escape death by the Roman Catholic Church a ...

  HISTORY   Belize has been an independent country since 1981.  Belize as a whole covers 8867 square miles and has a little over 320,000 residents/citizens of Mestizo (Spanish – Indian), Creole (African – European), Maya, Garifuna, Chinese, East Indian and European descendants, along with North Americans.  Bordered by Mexico to the North, Guatemala to the west and south and the Caribbean Sea to the east, the topography ranges from sea level mangrove, to forests, to mountains all in one tiny little country.   There are three atolls and the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere.  The coast is dotted with hundreds of islands (called cayes). The barrier reef runs the entire length of the country starting down in Guatemala, going North past up into Mexico.   Ambergris Caye is the largest of those cayes and the most densely populated.  It is approximately 26 miles long and located in the Riviera Maya section, near the Mexican border.  There are approximately 18,000 people that live full ...
The former Soviet bloc was certainly no egalitarian, wisely-run utopia, but it wasn't the open air concentration camp I was warned about in the '50s and '60s either. The things that Tamás points out here, about the massive distribution of cheap reprints of classic literature, etc., were at the time unknown to North Americans. Whole libraries have been written about what Soviet & Eastern European society was really like, and what it meant historically, but for those of us who grew up during the Red Scare era, it's worth considering Tamás's viewpoint.

From exotic juices to cans of cocktail peanuts, more and more edibles in the supermarket are being dubbed "anti-aging" by some marketer or media pundit. The real deal about munchies that keep you youthful and boost your longevity? They come from the earth, not a vacuum pack.   We're not the only ones who are saying that. Take a look at what the longest-lived people in the world are eating (if you know us, this list will look familiar, but with a few twists). Then, put their anti-aging favorites on your own table.     Costa Rica: Beans for Breakfast Residents of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula are four times more likely than most North Americans to live past age 90. One reason may be dishes like gallo pinto, a tasty mix of black beans and rice flavored with onion, red peppers, garlic, olive oil, cilantro, and a salsa lizano -- a condiment a little like Worcestershire sauce. The Oz part of this team learned on a trip to Nicoya that big breakfasts that begin with beans rule there.       Nova Scotia: Wild ...

The earliest explorers to uncover the ancient Maya civilisation in Central America could not believe that it owed its creation to the indigenous population, whom they saw as incapable savages. Nigel Richardson explains how this view changed. The Europeans and North Americans who ‘discovered’ the ruined Maya cities of Central America from the late 18th century onwards were not the first white men to wonder at these old stones. The soldiers and priests of the Spanish Conquest had stumbled on many sites before them. Pre-eminent was Bishop Diego de Landa (1524-79), who travelled extensively in the Yucatán peninsula in the mid-16th century, compiling an exhaustive record of Maya religion and culture (published in 1566 as Relación de las Cosas de Yucatán , translated as Yucatan Before and After the Conquest), even as he was persecuting and converting the adherents of the old beliefs and destroying their codices and sacred images. Antonio de Ciudad Real, a Franciscan friar, wrote the earliest known descri ...
