"Singapore ranks 30th in the 2013 UN World Happiness Report"
James William King: "The recently released 2013 UN World Happiness Report devotes a sizable section to Bhutan, attempting to quantify the happiness levels of the only country that prioritizes contentment over income. The country’s 1729 legal code stated that, “if the Government cannot create happiness for its people, there is no purpose for the Government to exist.” In 1972, this sentiment was codified when Bhutan’s King, Jigme Singye Wangchuck, instituted a “Gross National Happiness” as its official measure of progress, superseding the more traditional Gross National Product in importance. The country’s constitution directs the state “to promote those conditions that will enable the pursuit of Gross National Happiness.” “We know that true abiding happiness cannot exist while others suffer, and comes only from serving others, living in harmony with nature, and realizing our innate wisdom and the true and brilliant nature of our own minds,” the prime minister said in 2008."

By our sister; Salam sisters. I have a muslim sister living here in sydney in a womans shelter. She married a muslim brother and he brought her here. To make you all understand her current situation while keeping it short. Her husband married her overseas and brought her here. When she was picked up from the Airport by her husband he gave her the cold shoulder and looked very angry. When they got home he simply said to her Im going to work clean up and left. She found womans clothing on the bed and in the bathroom. When he came back home late that night he slept on the couch. In the morning this sister asked her husband if he can stay home as she was scared in a new country. Her husband turned to her and said you are here cos my family would have disowned me if I didnt marry you so just be thankful you got a free plane ticket to come here. For 5months this sister was scared to leave the house. There were times he would sneak in the house at night when shes asleep to shower and collect fresh clothes, that ...

IS SHE A CONWOMAN OR ITS REAL Hi Admin, kindly post this for me urgently, Am confident your fans will solve my problem and advise me accordingly. Am a 47years old man my first wife died three years ago due to breast cancer. Few months ago I had to put my past and loneliness and decided to search for a woman to care for me. I checked the Saturday magazine in daily nation in the column of soul mate of 23.06.2012 and I found a woman who was 34yrs living and working in east Africa. I was so happy to call her when she responded so nice and told me she liked me. We agreed to meet on a Friday evening at hilton hotel and have dinner. She was smart brown and very attractive. Though she never disclosed what she did for a living she kept on dodging the question whenever I asked her. Am a lawyer by profession with many investments and when I told her that she was overjoyed. The date went so well and for another time I felt like I was in love after the death of my wife. The first week she asked me to send her 20k whic ...

Justice Delayed is Justice Denied. The girl is no more. I wish she could see justice done while she was alive. What are we waiting for? Are we waiting for a civil disobedience? The death of Constable Shri Subhash Tomar also raises many questions including whether the post mortem of the constable on duty was manipulated to dissuade (de-motivate and scare) of the crowd that has been pouring all over the country or whether it was an act / accident by the crowd because of which the officer on duty died? Now, the irony! People injured, officer on duty dead, girl dead, people insecure and the culprits still alive. Not punished. Justice Delayed is Justice Denied. Need this delay happen? NO. The culprits should have been punished within 7 days. We cannot hang them yet. The law does not allow it. But even the charge sheet has not been filed by the police. It is supposed to be filed by January 3rd 2013. Why so late? Disappointing! People are asking for death penalty for rarest of rare cases. Justice Verma Committ . ...

~Tina H I see this in one form or another on this very page. Comments made on survivors stories, oust made, etc. felt compelled to remind all that we all have a different path and that each member may be at very different stages of the journey out of the abusive relationship. Some are still in it for various reasons. No blame or judgment. Just a fact:) VICTIM BLAMING AND RELATIONSHIP ABUSE Victim-blaming attitudes are one of these barriers and place survivors in greater danger. FIRST OF ALL, WHERE DOES IT COME FROM? One reason people blame a victim is to distance themselves from an unpleasant occurrence and thereby confirm their own invulnerability to the risk. By labeling or accusing the victim, others can see her as different from themselves. People reassure themselves by thinking, "Because I am not like her, because I do not do that, this would never happen to me." WHY IS IT DANGEROUS? Victim-blaming attitudes only work to marginalize the victim and make it harder for him/her to come forward and repor ...

These days, with all of our attention so focused on the enormous challenges we’re facing—from climate change to global economic crisis—it’s always a revelation to me to consider how much progress we’ve made as a species even just in the past two centuries. Think about how much blood was spilled in the American Civil War only 150 years ago to free the slaves and now we almost take it for granted that we have a black First Family in the Whitehouse. Also, the dramatic change in our standard of living, the rise in the quality of life for so many people today would be unimaginable to even the well-to-do elite in the 1800s. And that’s why I wonder why it seems that so few people these days notice how much our world has changed and continues to change for the better.

The country has a reputation as a happy place with friendly people, but the 2012 World Happiness Report ranks the country among the least happy, or 103rd out of 155 surveyed countries worldwide. The report was published by Columbia University's Earth Institute. The rankings were based on a "life evaluation score," which takes into account a range of factors, including good health, access to education, political freedom, quality of relationships, and trusting communities. The top ten happiest nations, according to the study, were mostly in Northern Europe, a region with bitterly cold winters but apparently a high level of contentment, with Denmark number one, followed by Finland, Netherlands, and Norway. Canada is fifth. The United States is ranked 11th. The happiness index refutes the common perception of an automatic correlation between contentment and level of income, *** ...

Raised Under the GLBT Umbrella June 27, 2012 Dawn Stefanowicz grew up in a home where the sexual desires of adults were put ahead of her needs and well-being. Today she fights for traditional marriage and a child’s right to a mother and father. Jim Graves Same-sex marriage is the cause célèbre of many politicians and celebrities, and is extensively covered in the news. As debates rage, one central issue is often overlooked, believes Canadian author and speaker Dawn Stefanowicz: how does being reared in a same-sex household affect children? Many states already allow same-sex couples to adopt children, a practice that will be further cemented in law as more states issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples. Additionally, some homosexuals have children of their own from previous opposite-sex relationships. Dawn brings a rare voice to the public discussion; her father was actively involved in the *** lifestyle, and she describes herself as “raised under the GLBT *** *** bisexual and transgende ...

Best Country On Earth? you know Denmark? Have you ever been there? Not yet. So make a decision (in my opinion it’s the best decision) once to travel here to see a wonderful place on earth where people live in peaceful, clean and green environments. The silent people (may be because of the cold weather) are relaxed and friendly smiling, especially now in summer time. It’s a small country with the population of 5.3 million people. Here we can ride bicycles from home to the train and bus stations everyday in the green color of the trees. People in some countries say that they are not surprise to read that the Danes topped the United Nation’s first World Happiness Report. If you work later than 5.30 pm, the office is a morgue. And works at the weekend the Danes think you are mad. The idea is that families have time to play and eat together at the end of the day, every day. And it works the Danish culture. We have Freedom and Democracy here; we can say love to someone we love, express dislike of someone ...

Report shows there is more to happiness than money. The first World Happiness Report, released by Earth Institute last month shows that the world happiest countries are all in Northern Europe. Denmark 1st. Findland 2nd. Norway 3rd. And Netherlands 4th. While higher incomes may raise happiness to some extent, the quest for more money may acually reduce ones happiness.

America may once have been the Land of Opportunity, but thanks to its rising levels of inequality – not to mention the nightmarish visa restrictions – our political class now has another destination in mind.

Gross National Happiness looks at the quality of life, how much leisure time you have, what’s happening in your community, and how integrated you feel with your culture. So powerful was the idea that even China that has relentlessly pushed for material progress ordered its officials to go out and ‘make people happy‘ in a bid to combat simmering discontent caused by a widening rich-poor divide, choking pollution, soaring inflation and endemic corruption. Wen Jiabao, the Chinese premier said, “An official’s performance and political achievements should be evaluated by whether the public are happy or not, dissatisfied or not, but not by how many high-rise buildings and projects he had been involved in.” There is even a World Happiness Report that was commissioned by UN.
A group of 333 bagpipers in Sofia, Bulgaria, set the Guinness world record for the largest bagpipe performance on Wednesday-инф.е от PBS NewsHour.333 Rhodopian bagpipers played for GUINNESS WORLD RECORD at National Palace of Culture, Sofia. Bulgaria is king of the bagpipes now! пише i oще-The 333 Bulgarian folk musicians gathered in central Sofia late on Wednesday, blowing their kaba-gaidas - bagpipes from the Rhodope mountains in the south of the Balkan country - to set the first such Guinness world record. Dressed in traditional colourful Rhodope costumes, bagpipers started with a famous folk song - Delyu Haidutin - which was included in a Voyager golden record with the songs and sounds of our planet and sent as a message to space by NASA in 1977. The event also aimed to bring a spot of joy to a nation which a survey showed was among the most unhappy on the planet. Having joined the European Union in 2007, it is still the bloc’s poorest member and recovering from a deep recess ...
The pursuit of happiness BY ROBERT SAMUELSON WE ought to leave "happiness" to novelists and philosophers - and rescue it from the economists and psychologists who think it can be distilled into a "science" and translated into pro-happiness policies. Fat chance. Government can often mitigate sources of unhappiness (starvation, unemployment, disease), but happiness is more than the absence of misery. If we could manufacture happiness, we could repeal the "human condition". Somehow this has escaped the social scientists who want to make happiness the goal of government. They argue that economic output (gross domestic product) doesn't measure everything that's important in life - family, friends or religion, for example. True, but it doesn't follow that "happiness" can be targeted as an alternative. No matter. Their latest brief is the World Happiness Report, which ranks countries by their "subjective well-being" (the technical label for happiness) as recorded by public opinion surveys. On the most comprehens ...
