We all have a pretty good idea what roles a Scoutmaster and a Cubmaster play in our movement. Allow us to re-introduce to you a very important Scouter who makes a difference in the lives of Scouts in multiple units: the Commissioner. The role of a Commissioner dates back to the founding of our movement. Lord Baden Powell understood that in order for Scouting to grow and yet remain consistent, a corps of committed Scouters had to be charged with going out and supporting units. They were there to serve as a resource to help the unit leaders deliver a quality program to the kids they served. They were also there to make sure that the program was consistent from one unit to another. W.F. deBois MacLaren (who donated Gilwell Park to Lord Baden Powell) and Rudyard Kipling were some notable early Commissioners ...

Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014 American Minute "Oh, East is East, and West is West, And never the twain shall meet, Till earth and sky stand presently, At God's great judgment seat" wrote Rudyard Kipling in Ballad of East and West. Born DECEMBER 30, 1865, in Bombay, India, Rudyard Kipling was sent back to England at age 5 for schooling. Poor eyesight ended hopes of a military career, so at age 16, Kipling returned to India as a journalist, winning acclaim for his poems. Rudyard Kipling fell in love with his friend's sister, Caroline Balestier, while visiting in America. They married and settled in Vermont, where two of their children were born. There Kipling wrote Captains Courageous and The Jungle Books. Once back in England, Rudyard Kipling declined King George V's offer of Knighthood, Poet Laureate and Order of Merit, though accepting the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Kipling's works include: Kim, Wee Willie Winkie, Baa Baa Black Sheep, and Gunga Din. Ronald Reagan, in a speech near the end of his Presid ...

It’s Remembrance Sunday today, but Armistice Day on Tuesday which is when our choir ROOTS is staging a tribute concert at the Royal British Legion, Melbourne. It starts at 7.30 pm. Tickets £5 with all profits being split between Help For Heroes and the British Legion. Our tribute consists of a mix of songs, music, poetry and storytelling set against a visual back drop of original photographs from both wars. Here’s a little sample - it’s a reminder that every soldier lost was once someone’s smiling boy. The words were written by Rudyard Kipling who lost his only son in the Great War and our musical director, Willow on vocals. On the night ROOTS will be singing this and I’m sure some of you will recognise the lads who modelled! If you can’t make it, please like and share, thanks.

Joseph Rudyard Kipling was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He wrote tales and poems of British soldiers in India and stories for children. He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. He grew up to be a writer that was closely associated with the romance of British Imperialism (but not the horrible realities) whose own family life ended in tragedy.
Just as it was racist to suggest as Rudyard Kipling did in his infamous 'White Man's Burden,' that it was necessary to go save the native, "half devil and half child," it is equally racist to patronize the Arab and pretend that he is innately pure, flawless patron saint, "half angel and half child."

You'll never catch a successful person saying, "It's not fair." Over 2,500 years ago, philosopher and poet Lao Tzu taught that our words become actions, which eventually become our destiny. In first century Greece, historian and essayist Plutarch declared that a speaker's state of mind, character, and disposition are exposed through their words. And Napoleon Hill, the twentieth century father of personal success literature, asserts that words plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another. "Across the planet, sages insist that words are potent and should be chosen and spoken with care, for they are 'the most powerful drug used by mankind,' as Rudyard Kipling warns," says Darlene Price, president of Well Said, Inc., and author of "Well Said! Presentations and Conversations That Get Results." "If they're right, it stands to reason that what we say to ourselves and others plays a critical role in helping us achieve success." Regardless of how you may define success, wo ...

This child was caught by Leut. John Moor under the guidance of Col. William Sleeman in 1831.

(Editor in charge of business books for Prentice Hall, 1957.) "But what is it good for?"

KANHA NATIONAL PARK It also want a new story after the Jungle Book The lush sal and bamboo forests, grassy meadows and ravines of Kanha provided inspiration to Rudyard Kipling for his famous novel "Jungle Book". The Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh came into being in 1955 and forms the core of the Kanha Tiger Reserve, created in 1974 under Project Tiger. The Park's landmark achievement is the preservation of the rare hardground Swamp Deer (Barasingha), saving it from near extinction. Stringent conservation programs for the overall protection of the Park's fauna and flora, makes Kanha one of the most well maintained National Parks in Asia.

THE SHALL TWAIN MEET":- BY KAMALHAK “NEVER THE SHALL TWAIN MEET” (With due apology to Rudyard Kipling) Year 2006 Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has just announced 1st Round Table on Kashmir. Speculation is ripe with who among Kashmiri Pandits would be invited to attend. Panun Kashmir finds two of its supreme leaders Dr. Agnishekhar and Dr. Ajay Chrangu among the few Kashmiri Pandit invitees. Pt. AN Vaishnavi and Sunil Shakder are the other prominent KP names announced in the first list. That Sunil Shakder didn’t attend the round table ultimately is story of personal ego and sacrifice that I leave for some other time. Dr. Agnishekhar immediately calls the meeting of his working group and declares though the PM’s invite is recognition of Panun Kashmir’s struggle, yet, we need to take whole community into confidence. He announces his action plan of series of meetings with all KP organization heads to seek their opinion and inputs for the meeting. The next couple of days sees him reaching out to virt ...

Without exception, the response to the Post-Gutenberg Revolution, by traditional publishers and the major chain bookstores, as well as most of the independents, has been to cry foul and seek ways to circle the wagons, attempting to close off all the more to the change that they are indisputably incapable of controlling. I believe the only thing that will work is to open the front door to writers like these self-publishers: Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, Walt Whitman, William Blake, John Milton, Henry Adams, Ezra Pound, e. e. cummings, Edgar Allan Poe, James Joyce, D.

What's the big deal about Maya Angelou dying? She was a success late in life, rather undeservedly so, and won acclaim and fame far beyond her merits, for decades. As with anyone who passes away, we may of course say Rest in Peace. But... while we should certainly feel sorry for her, for her awful experience as a child, that doesn't mean we should elevate her to the level of one of the great talents, when she simply wasn't one. As a poet, she wasn't even second-rate. It was her personal story that drew her acclaim, not her writings. There are great poets in the English language. My favorites are Robert Service and Rudyard Kipling. Others prefer Tennyson, or William Shakespeare, or Lewis Carroll, or J.R.R. Tolkien (yes, it DOES take talent to write a novel and pepper it with poetry as they did). And that's not even counting songwriters.

“The books transported her into new worlds and introduced her to amazing people who lived exciting lives. She went on olden-day sailing ships with Joseph Conrad.

America, the language we speak in England is rich and varied with an eclectic mix of accents and tones which are steeped in history and tradition. We have a knack of coining phrases which aptly and deftly describe in great detail, complexity and dexterity exactly what we are aspiring to achieve with the fluent music of language. Our great nation has exposed to the English speaking world such marvelous manipulators of the spoken and written word. I propose to you: Shakespeare, William Blake, John Milton, Jonathan Swift, Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, C.S. Lewis, George Orwell, H.G. Wells, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, J.R.R. Tolkien - and the list could go on and on. Men who were masters of their own craft, and on whose genius did we inherit in the ways of the spoken word and form our dialect for it to evolve into an immense, all encompassing language of divine measure that today is simply and humbly known as 'The English Language'. And so, for the last time, it's not soccer, it's f*ing football.
Audition Notice: Monday 19th May, 7.45pm in the bar 'My Boy Jack' by Daniel Haig A powerful and moving play that tells the tragic story of how Rudyard Kipling sent his son to death in the First World War, triggering a bitter family conflict. Beautifully written by the well-known actor David Haig, it has wonderful parts for actors (particularly young actors) in both the major roles and the character roles. You may have seen the 2007 TV drama based on the play, with David Haig himself as Rudyard Kipling and Daniel Radcliffe as Jack Kipling. Unfortunately we couldn't get either of them - they're a little busy - but undoubtedly our own Archway actors will do a far better job anyway! Roles: (all ages are playing ages) Rudyard Kipling - late 40s/50s Carrie Kipling, his wife - late 40s/50s John (Jack) Kipling, his son - 17 Elsie (Bird) Kipling, his daughter - 18/19 Guardsman Bowe - 20-25 Guardsman Doyle - 20-25 plus Guardsman McHugh - 20-25 plus Mr Frankland - any age from 20+ Major Sparks - any age from 25+ Col ...
Today: Discuss theology and education with Dallin. Work. Yeah descriptions of people and clothing in ASL. Teach geometry. Work. Correct and tutor math. Discuss the Boer Wars, learn about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling's involvement in said war. Discuss the similarities and differences between the Black Power and Black Consciousness movements. Compare and contrast Mandela and Ghandi; discuss nonviolence as a moral vs strategical stance.

Plant herb garden, and half the anti-mosquito plants. Cook fish and fresh asparagus for dinner. Moderate heated disagreement about music style and volume. Clean up cat vomit. Finally shower. Maybe, just maybe, some studying can happen next ...

Writing a brief history of The Pioneer for my series The Great Indian Newspapers: The Pioneer, which is celebrating its 150th birthday this year. It should be published in Communication Today edited by Sanjeev Bhanawat. One of the interesting fact about The Pioneer: it is probably the obnly newspaper in India which had two two Nobel laureates on its staff.Rudyard Kipling and Sir Winston Churchill. Kipling served as a sub-editor and reporter. During his stint with the Pioneer he reported from Calcutta and also from Shimla. His reports were as fascinating as his fiction. Churchill served the Pioneer in the late 1890s as its War Correspondent during the Tirah campaign of the North-West Frontier of India. It was before he became the Prime Minister of UK.

Just had two days away thanks to my wonderful husband,who just told me to pack an overnight bag,with no idea where I was going. Well we start Wednesday after Sian had picked poppy up(thank you) then made our way to Hughenden which was Benjamin Dissraille's house,but after his death was used for map planning during Second World War. Then it was onto the next stop which was the main surprise Warner Studio's for Harry Potter world which was absolutely fantastic,we both had a wonderful time for nearly 4 hours. After we had finished here we went onto an overnight stay in Cambridge. Thursday got up had breakfast,then a swim before going to Wimpole house and farm. This was an interesting house,which was last owned by Rudyard Kipling's Daughter and her husband,before being handed to the National Trust on her death. Then the only downside to two days away,stuck in traffic most of the way home.

How You Manage When you see that word “management” I hope you don’t think about your boss, but instead about how you manage your peers, your work, and your customers. We’re all managing things. The issue is how effective and wise we are in that duty. Enjoy (hopefully). · The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook – William James · Every race and every nation should be judged by the best it has been able to produce, not by the worst – James Weldon Johnson · More men are killed by overwork than the importance of the world justifies – Rudyard Kipling [amen to that] · Power is the great aphrodisiac – Henry A. Kissinger · Market competition is the only form of organization which can afford a large measure of freedom to the individual – Frank Hyneman Knight · People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge – Lao-tzu [to which I would add, then people in this country must be pretty darn stupid because they’re getting rolled over] · If we had no f ...

Imagine yourself a modern Cassandra: 5 full years ahead of the sub-prime loan debacle (aka the Great Recession, which it would become globally) you had insisted that the commonsensical ways led to a dead end. And you walked your talk alright: your portfolio consisted exclusively of broad-based indices; the notion of the so-called risk appetite being totally absent in your mental apparatus, stiff upper lip all the way! Let's remind ourselves now with the full benefit of hindsight (русский мужик, как известно, задним умом крепок) how the things would have played out — wealth-wise — therefrom. While everyone around you were losing theirs (as Rudyard Kipling would probably have put it), you faithfully abstained from accumulating the securities in circulation. In real world terms, the other guys would get er... richer than you. A loss? A loss of profit? Let's pause here and try to reframe it too: the guys who blew the bubble to its limit inevitably causing a worldwide ...

Good afternoon to ALL my literate likers. A brief break from my scribblings to tease you once more. First, the quote of the day: "Man, an ingenious assembly of portable plumbing". Christopher Morley. I LOVE this one: Besides being well-known men, what did or do the following have in common? Walt Disney, Reich Marshal Herman Goring, Sir Edward Elgar, Peter Cushing, The Duke of Gloucester, Andy Williams, Rudyard Kipling and Neil Young. Feel free to Google this one. LOVE to ALL, JSJ.
When I was 8 I watched Bernard King and talked to my mother. I cooked amazing food compliments of Bernard King like Spanish Omlettes and made potatoe bird nests and pasties and pizza out of the wood stove jam tarts and apple turnovers with produce from the garden . I read books mostly from op shop Shakespeare and Rudyard Kipling and wrote plays
LOL! Oh, Yes! Under the blankets, with a flashlight, for up to 3 days at a time without sleep for thick books, like Great Expectations. Or, at my elementary school desk, hidden inside a history book I'd already finished reading in the first few weeks of class, for Dracula, Frankenstein and such skinnier books. Then, there were lots of Jules Verne, RL Stevenson, AC Doyle, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Jack London. There was Moby *** the Hardy Boys and Marvel Comics, the Greek and Roman myths and native American stories, and… well, the list does go on. I lost a lot of sleep and missed a lot of my teachers' lectures. ;-) - Bill
D The Gods of the Copybook Headings by Rudyard Kipling, 1865-1936 • Background Published in October 1919 when the poet was 53 years old, "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" has proved enduringly popular, despite the fact that copybooks disappeared from schoolrooms in Britain and America during, or shortly after, World War 2. A copybook was an exercise book used to practice one's handwriting in. The pages were blank except for horizontal rulings and a printed specimen of perfect handwriting at the top. You were supposed to copy this specimen all down the page. The specimens were proverbs or quotations, or little commonplace hortatory or admonitory sayings — the ones in the poem illustrate the kind of thing. These were the copybook headings. Kipling had lost his dearly loved son in World War 1, and a precious daughter some years earlier. He was a drained man in 1919, and England, with which he identified intensely, was a drained nation. Though he was no atheist, was in fact a Christian of an eccentric . ...
Today is the Death Anniversary of Sir Pelham Grenville WODEHOUSE ( 15 October 1881 – 14 February 1975) the English Humorist whose body of work includes novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics and numerous pieces of journalism. He enjoyed enormous popular success during a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of a pre- and post-World War I English upper class society, reflecting his birth, education and youthful writing career. An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by recent writers such as Christopher Hitchens, Stephen Fry, Douglas Adams, J. K. Rowling and John Le Carré. Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse wa ...

There is NO escape for the wicked, your bad Karma will get you in your next life.

You will NEVER EVER see them telling the supreme " COME ON TAKE ME ON, YOU SOB -- DO YOUR WORST" when they are about to kick the bucket. I challenge anybody to prove me wrong, in the future too.

Rudyard Kipling asked how the leopard got its spots, the rhino its wrinkled skin. He called his answers "just-so stories." When evolutionists try to explain form and behavior, they also tell just-so stories—and the agent is natural selection. Virtuosity in invention replaces testability as the criterion for acceptance. Stephen Jay Gould (1980)
Recently, revisiting Rudyard Kipling, I came upon these eerie lines. Far-called, our navies melt away; On dune and headland sinks the fire; Lo, all our pomp of yesterday is one with Nineveh and Tyre! Judge of the nations, spare us yet. Lest we forget - Lest we forget. (Recessional) Ring a bell?
Rudyard Kipling quoted “Words are, of course, the most POWERFUL DRUG used by mankind.” thank you.
Rudyard Kipling was an ultra nationalist xenophob whose Jungle Book jingles I can't shake ('watch it again, please.")

In my twelve years on this spinning ball we call Earth, I’ve seen a lot of things normal people never see. I’ve seen lunch boxes stripped of everything except fruit.

Reasons to be proud to be British . " If " by Rudyard Kipling is probably the worlds most stirring and frequently quoted poem . Its quiet wisdom , a reflection on the beauty of living a virtuous and humble life adorns office walls , is spoken publically at major rallies and is displayed at countless public monuments across the land . It`s even framed on the wall of the players` entrance to Centre Court at Wimbledon . It is the quintessential English poem written by a very English poet . Kipling was inspired to write the inspirational verse after a colonial raid executed by Sir Leander Starr Jameson in the Transvaal province , South Africa which finished on 2nd January 1896 . The raid was a bloody disaster and its failure helped incite the Boer War . But hey *** , every cloud etc , the poem is jolly nice .
