death and loss


Contemplative thoughts on life

(25 Jan 2019)

When someone dies
we wonder
where does he go?

When someone dies
we cry
for he’s never coming home (anymore)

When someone dies
we remember
all the good things

When someone dies
we think
and we feel so much… grief

When someone dies
perhaps, just perhaps
he never leaves
maybe just out of our sight
out of our reach
but very much still around

For what we are made up of
is far greater than
what we can imagine

When someone dies
think of it as
a change of state
a transcendence in level

From temporal existence
to eternity

(perhaps then, we will deem it less of a loss, and more of a… blessing?)

HOW TAIWAN LOST OUT IN AFRICA


Africa Diplomatic Front

”Serial acts of suppression” that’s what President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan called it after Beijing snatched off Burkina Faso; one of the only two countries left for Taipei in Africa.

It has been a loss for Taiwan in Africa in the recent years as the country continues to lose its grip of its allies in the continent. The unceasing cut in diplomatic ties by different African States as a loyalty to China has made it difficult for Taiwan government to keep the country’s presence in the 54 African nations.

There were once 30 African states which had ties to Taiwan. Now there is just one. This is because countries are forced to choose between China or Taiwan under the “one China” policy. Since the Cold War era, China had demanded that countries must choose in favor of one of them and that diplomatic relations with both is not possible.

Endocrine Disruptors


PharmaNerd

Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can affect normal hormone functions in the body. These are compounds that have a chemical structure that the body mistakenly recognizes as a naturally occurring hormone. They can interfere with normal body chemistry in several ways. These compounds can block the action of a hormone, or have a similar effect as the hormone. They may also alter the production of hormones or the chemical message sent by a hormone.

They can be found in household items, consumer goods, foods and the environment.

Compounds that act as endocrine disruptors include:

  • DDT – a pesticide
  • Phthalates- used to make plastics more flexible, found in food containers, toys and personal care products
  • Polychlorinated Biphenyls or PCBs- used in many consumer items. These are now banned but still persist in the environment.
  • Phenol compounds- bisphenol A (BPA) found in food containers, alkylphenol found in laundry detergents, and triclosan found…

Mobbed


Her Diary

Leaders speech

When unedited

Creates a ripple

The emergence

Called “Movement”

The outbreak culminating

into a “Revolution “

One,

Two hundreds,

Mobs have emerged

Just like crawling out of cracks

Being named headless

Like sheep following the local farmer

Chased by the faithful dog

Gone are those days’

They are a “MOB”

A force to reckon with,

If their leader is out of mind,

And out of sorts,

Then the turn is against the taken sides’

Turmoil is the outbreak,

The barbed fence,

Doesn’t rip a clothing piece solely,

It mostly,

Holds on to

Raw pieces of a human kind

Maybe “one’s heart”

Skinned and scraped

Feases and minced insides’

Add to the imagery of,

The gruesome sights

The air spits no oxygen

Stop thy in the tracks

As no longer we associate ourselves’

With rods and thunder booted walks,

“What is this they ask?”

We say,

“Nothing”

They nod…

Russian Military Seeks Permission to Shoot Down Passenger Planes


To Inform is to Influence

28 May 1987

Russia intends to give blanket permission for the defense of Russian airspace. Their reasoning?

“Sadly, people on the plane will die, but this will prevent a more terrible catastrophe,” Russia’s pro-Kremlin Izvestia daily quoted Senator Frants Klintsevich as saying Friday.

I’m quite certain Russia has a history of invading airplanes and drones.  No?  Not since 19-year old Matias Rust on 28 May 1987. 

So why would the Russian draft pass such a risky rule for the Russian military?  Once it has been ascertained that no hostages are on board, the air defenses of Russia can engage. Perhaps. It speeds up response time.  Perhaps. It ensures safety for Russia. Perhaps. 

This appears to be a blanket approval resulting from a deliberate discussion, in peacetime, for what may be a very stressful decision for an air defense commander during a crisis of extreme…

Call to create


From The Darkness Into The Light

Called to Create
“No philosophical theory which I have yet come across is a radical improvement on the words of Genesis, that ‘In the beginning God made Heaven and Earth.'” – C. S. Lewis

The first thing God revealed about Himself in Scripture is not that He is loving, holy, omnipotent, gracious, or just. No, the first thing God showed us is that He is creative! For the first six days, God revealed His creative spirit by speaking stars, animals, and oceans into existence. Then, on the sixth day, He created man “in His own image” and called Adam to create, thus reflecting God’s image to the world.

To call a human being “creative” is redundant. We are all made in the image of the Creator God. But as Romans 12 makes clear, each of us has “different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.” Some of us…

We meet with the oncologist first, to go over blood work and vitals, talk and get a physical exam. Then, if it all looks well, I get the “green light” for chemo that day. (Needless to say, “all looked well”!) She continues to be shocked at how good the thyroid looks and feels. If you remember, that’s where this all started and that’s what was supposed to give me 4-6 months to live….even before they found the other two cancers.

สำรวจโมเดลบัตรคนจนของออสเตรเลีย


ศาสตร์เกษตรดินปุ๋ย2

ศาสตร์เกษตรดินปุ๋ย : ขอบคุณแหล่งข้อมูล : หนังสือพิมพ์โพสต์ทูเดย์

https://www.posttoday.com/world/573605

  • วันที่ 11 ธ.ค. 2561 เวลา 18:11 น.

สำรวจโมเดลบัตรคนจนของออสเตรเลีย

ชาวออสซี่ก็มีบัตรคนจน แต่ไม่แจกเงินสดเหมือนบ้านเรา

ประเด็นการแจกเงิน 500 บาทให้กับ “ผู้มีรายได้น้อย” ที่ถือบัตรสวัสดิการแห่งรัฐในบ้านเรานั้น ได้สร้างเสียงวิจารณ์อย่างมากต่อการใช้งบประมาณภาษีของประชาชน รวมถึงในประเด็นความไม่ชัดเจนของบุคคลที่อาจจะไม่เข้าเงื่อนไขการรับบัตร แต่ก็ได้รับบัตร ขณะที่ผู้ที่มีรายได้น้อยจริงๆบางคนกลับไม่มีสิทธิรับบัตรดังกล่าว

อย่างไรก็ตามโมเดลที่รัฐบาลมอบบัตรสวัสดิการเพื่อใช้แทนเงินสดในการใช้จ่ายต่างๆให้กับประชาชนนั้น ที่ประเทศออสเตรเลียก็มีแนวคิดการแจกบัตรในลักษณะคล้ายกันนี้เช่นกัน

บัตรดังกล่าวเรียกว่า Cashless Welfare Card หรือ Cashless Debit Card หรือ white card ตามแต่จะเรียกแตกต่างกันในท้องถิ่นต่างๆ

โครงการดังกล่าวนั้นรัฐบาลออสเตรเลียเริ่มนำร่องแจกครั้งแรกในปี 2016 โดยมุ่งแจกให้กับชาวพื้นเมืองอะบอริจิ้น รวมถึงชาวออสเตรเลียในพื้นที่ห่างไกลที่มีปัญหาทางสังคมสูง ซึ่งปัจจุบันมีพื้นที่ห่างไกล 4 แห่งที่รัฐบาลนำมาตรการดังกล่าวไปทดลองใช้ คือภูมิภาค  Ceduna รัฐเซาท์ออสเตรเลีย, เมือง Kununurra, เมือง Wyndham, เมือง Kalgoorlie ในรัฐเวสเทิร์นออสเตรเลีย และในเขต Hinkler รัฐควีนแลนด์

บัตรสวัสดิการดังกล่าวนั้น รัฐบาลออสเตรเลียผลักดันเพื่อต้องการให้ประชาชนรู้จักการใช้งานเพื่อการดำรงขั้นพื้นฐานในชีวิต อีกทั้งยังมุ่งหวังการลดปัญหาความรุนแรงในสังคมในพื้นที่ห่างไกลที่มักจะประสบปัญหายาเสพติด ความรุนแรงที่เกิดจากแฮลกฮอลล์ และการพนัน

จากข้อมูลของสำนักบริการสังคมออสเตรเลีย (Department of social services) ระบุว่า บัตรสวัสดิการนี้ จะมีลักษณะและการดำเนินการที่คล้ายกับบัตรเดบิตทั่วไป แต่จะไม่สามารถใช้ซื้อของบางอย่างเช่น แอลกฮอลล์ การพนัน และไม่สามารถถอนเงินสดได้

ใครมีสิทธิรับบัตรนี้บ้าง

แรงงานในภูมิภาค Ceduna, East Kimberley และ Goldfields ของรัฐเซาท์ออสเตรเลีย และรัฐเวสเทิร์นออสเตรเลียทุกคนมีสิทธิ์ได้รับบัตรสวัสดิการดังกล่าว ยกเว้นแต่ผู้รับบำนาญเกษียณอายุ รวมถึงผู้รับบำนาญทหารผ่านศึกจะไม่มีสิทธิ์

ส่วนประชาชนในพื้นที่ห่างไกลของรัฐควีนสแลนด์บางส่วนเท่านั้นจะมีสิทธิ์ได้รับบัตรดังกล่าว เช่นคนทำงานที่อายุ 35 ปีขึ้นไป หรือแรงงานจบใหม่ที่กำลังเพิ่งเริ่มหางานและเข้าร่วมในโครงการ Newstart ของรัฐบาลด้วย อีกทั้งขึ้นอยู่กับเงื่อนไขต่างๆตามแต่ละท้องถิ่น ไม่ใช่ทุกคนที่จะได้รับบัตรชนิดนี้

ไม่มีแจกเงินสด

บัตรสวัสดิการของออสเตรเลียนี้ ไม่ใช่บัตรกดเงินสดของรัฐ แต่เป็นบัตรที่รัฐบาลออกให้ประชาชนที่เข้าเงื่อนไข โดยมีลักษณะคล้ายกับบัตรเครดิต ที่จะมีวงเงินให้ประชาชนใช้รูดซื้อสินค้าที่จำเป็นในชีวิตประจำวัน เช่น ซื้อของใช้ต่างๆตามร้านค้าที่มีสัญลักษณ์ EFTPOS ใช้จ่ายบิลค่าบริการต่างๆ ใช้ซื้อเสื้อผ้า

ที่สำคัญคือจะไม่สามารถใช้ซื้อเครื่องดื่มแอลกฮอลล์ ใช้เล่นการพนัน รวมถึงไม่สามารถกดเป็นเงินสดได้

อย่างไรก็ดี หลังจากที่เริ่มดำเนินโครงการในปี 2016 เป็นต้นมา ก็มีผลวิจัยที่ระบุว่าโครงการนี้ได้มีส่วนช่วยในการลดปัญหาความรุนแรงในครอบครัวที่มีต้นเหตุมาจากแฮลกอฮอลล์ลงไปได้ รวมถึงรัฐบาลของนายสก็อตต มอริสัน นายกรัฐมนตรีคนปัจจุบันมีแผนจะขยายโครงการนี้ไปยังพื้นที่แห่งอื่นๆด้วย อีกทั้งยังจะเพิ่มการให้สิทธิ์รักษาพยาบาลในอนาคตด้วยเช่นกัน

ติด”โซลาร์เซลล์”ฟรีเพื่อคนจน

นอกจากนโยบาลการให้สวัสดิการในลักษณะบัตรช่วยเหลือของออสเตรเลียแล้ว การช่วยเหลือผู้มีรายได้น้อยในประเทศอื่นๆที่น่าสนใจอย่างเช่น การติดตั้งแผงโซลาร์เซลล์ฟรีให้กับ 8 แสนครัวเรือนที่มีรายได้น้อยในอังกฤษ ซึ่งแนวคิดลักษณะนี้ก็เกิดขึ้นเช่นเดียวกับในรัฐแคลิฟอร์เนียของสหรัฐเช่นกัน ภายใต้โครงการ Low-Income Solar ที่ภาครัฐจะลงทุนติดตั้งแผงโซลาร์เซลล์ให้กับบ้านเรือนประชาชนฟรี เพื่อให้ประชาชนผู้มีรายได้น้อยเสียค่าไฟลดลง แถมรัฐยังรับซื้อพลังงานไฟฟ้าส่วนเกินที่ผลิตได้ อีกทั้งยังเป็นการสนับสนุนพลังงานสะอาดอีกด้วย

Gresham College: Professor Chris Whitty – Medicine At The Extremes of Life – #3/6 – Suffer The Little Children: How To Revolutionise Neonatal Care


The Inquiring Mind

About this series

A series of six lectures on medicine at one extreme of life, concentrating on some of the key diseases of old age.

https://youtu.be/jfhHqLoq9Hs

About this lecture

Childhood globally, and in Britain, is now safer than at any time in recorded history, with childhood deaths falling rapidly almost everywhere. Neonatal deaths (those in the first 28 days after birth) have fallen, but much more slowly than in later childhood.

Worldwide, we are approaching a point where almost half of all deaths inchildrenunder 5 occur in the first 28 days (neonates), and most of these are in the first week of life. In the UK, most of those who die by the age of 20, do so in the first year, and the highest risk is on the day of birth.

This lecture will briefly outline the reasons for the fall in child deaths, and then examine in…

He has a smartphone, but only uses it to access the Internet when he is home, and anywhere they have free WIFI.  He has a flip phone for making, and receiving calls, and 99% of the time it is sitting at home.  If he has it with him, it is usually not switched on.  Therefore we need the landline.

7 Tips for Flourishing as a Writer


ALPHABET SOUP

Flourishing-as-a-Writer

The old year should never be tossed on the compost heap without first picking the meat and marrow from its bones. Here’s a compilation of the choice morsels of wisdom gleaned from my writing life in 2018.

Creativity flourishes in community.

My mantra for the year was Vivat, Crescat, Floreat, a Latin phrase that means Live, grow, and flourish. These words truly shaped my year. In fact, if I had to sum up 2018 in one word, I would pick flourishing. I attribute this sense of thriving to a new group of friends I made in the Sunshine Coast Writers’ Roundtable, an initiative I launched in December 2017. Twelve months on, the group has grown and flourished.

As a card-carrying introvert, I am surprised at how much joy and vitality I derived from the weekly Monday morning breakfast gathering with these lovely writers. We kept each other…

The Art of Setting Holistic Life Goals


Nivedita

“New year, new me!”

The most innocent new year resolution is also the most fragile. As Antoine de Saint-Exupery said “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. Therein lies the reason behind the fragility of the vigor with which most people start off their new years or any such marked new beginnings.
We want change, we want growth, we set goals. Year after year, however, we somehow miss on one or another aspect of our life & feel imbalanced. This blog post is an attempt to help you in making your new year resolutions more holistic. As you will eventually note, this strategy is not limited to new year resolution but is in fact applicable whenever your wake-up-call hits home & you decide to take charge of your actions.

Why it’s time to drop mandatory celibacy


frommypulpit

Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich hit the nail on the head in a New Year’s Day homily when he spoke of the need for the church to modify tradition in response to changing modern times.

Change is needed, he said, “in light of the failure” surrounding the clergy sex abuse crisis. One long-standing tradition that must be up for “review,” he said, is celibacy for priests.

The current measures to address sex abuse are not enough without adapting church teachings, the cardinal said. “Yes, matters are about development and improvement and prevention and independent reviews — but more is also demanded.

“I am certain that the great renewal impulse of the Second Vatican Council is not being truly led forward and understood in its depth. We must further work on that,” he said. “Further adaptations of church teachings are required.”

True, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin effectively declared an end to the 24-year-old strong dollar policy in January 2018. The White House quickly backtracked as markets quaked. In 2019, expect a new currency push. One motivation: US growth is losing momentum. Trump is anxious to keep the key source of his legitimacy humming along. The bigger objective, though, is reminding Asia who’s boss.

Thriving Under Pressure

“Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves.”482817-Strength-through-adversity_banner

No matter what happens today, know that in the end everything works out.

Trust me. I speak from experience.

My smile comes equally from a place of darkness and a place of light.

How would I ever know how good I have it today — if I hadn’t lived a life of challenge and adversity.

And the best part is that I get to revisit my twenties every single day.

A time where many of my life lessons were born.

Listening and learning with my psychology students on campus.

And staying in touch for years to come.

I will always be grateful for the tough times in my life — for this is where my strength lies.

I believe the same for you.

You are a diamond in the making.

This I know for sure. 💞💎

‘All-Out War Against Religious Minorities’: Faith Leaders Expose China’s Brutal Persecution of Christians


Truth2Freedom's Blog

China is tightening its grip on the country’s Christians through repeated efforts to persecute and silence the Church.

Chinese believers are being rounded up, imprisoned and some even tortured for their faith. In addition, government officials are removing crosses from churches, burning Bibles and demolishing church buildings.

“Churches have been forced to shut down. China has banned the online sale of the Bible as it works to rewrite the scriptures to include pro-government messaging,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice.

Sekulow says it’s part of an all-out campaign to eradicate the faith of Chinese who choose to follow Jesus Christ.

Meanwhile, the ACLJ has launched a petition drive to fight for the freedom of one Christian pastor, John Cao, who Sekulow reports is behind bars in a “crowded Chinese prison cell” and has been “in a Chinese prison for nearly two years.”

UNESCO


PA Pundits - International

A Dry Bones Cartoon ~

According to Israel National News: Israel’s withdrawal from UNESCO has gone into effect a year after it officially notified the international body that it would leave.

Israel announced at the end of 2017 that it would leave the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in solidarity with the United States, whose withdrawal also became official on Tuesday.

It takes a year for the withdrawal to take effect.Israel and the United States will remain as observer states of UNESCO.

Israel, which joined the body on Sept. 16, 1949, has nine cultural sites on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites, including Masada, Acre, the White City of Tel Aviv, and the Necropolis of Beit She’arim.

In recent years, UNESCO has passed resolutions rejecting Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, and placed the Cave of the Patriarchs and the Old City of Hevron in the State of Palestine…

The Green New Deal Is A Trojan Horse For Socialism


PA Pundits - International

By Jarrett Stepman ~

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ready to tax the rich to make her Green New Deal a reality.

“People are going to have to start paying their fair share in taxes,” the recently elected New York Democrat told TV show “60 Minutes” in an interview set to air Sunday.

Speaking of prior decades’ taxation rates in the country, Ocasio-Cortez added, “Once you get to the tippy tops, on your 10 millionth dollar, sometimes you see tax rates as high as 60 or 70 percent.”

It shouldn’t be a surprise that the avowed “democratic socialist” went with the predictable “tax the rich” formula in order to pay for a massive government program to combat climate change.

But it would hardly be good news for most Americans if Ocasio-Cortez…

A Phoenix Moment can transpire at any time

STATE OF THE NATION

*** The Esoteric Meaning of the PHOENIX ***

“Also known as the legendary Firebird, the PHOENIX is a mythological and metaphorical harbinger foretold by many of the ancient civilizations. From time immemorial, this winged messenger has represented what all the cultures of antiquity knew about the cyclical ending of the ages. Especially at the end of the present Kali Yuga, because of the turbulent, tumultuous and tempestuous transition to the Golden Age,

Timothy Glenn ~ 2019: Welcome to the Reset


Laura Bruno's Blog

Today we have a special treat: Timothy Glenn’s 2019 report coming in well before the Chinese New Year! I’ve hyperlinked the earlier articles he references. It’s always fun to look back on how predictions unfolded across linear time.

Personally, I’ve been feeling Saturn in Capricorn in a major way, as Saturn’s been crossing and hovering over my Capricorn North Node. As Tim mentions, even if you don’t have any obvious Capricorn in your chart, you’re still going to feel these energies in at least some area(s) of life. Both 2019 and 2020 feature a whole bevy of potent astrological alignments. Whew! Excellent times for those who’ve diligently done their Shadow Work, and a chance to awaken for those who haven’t yet … Here’s Timothy’s report:

Solar Eclipse of January 5-6, 2019


The Stars Within Their Courses

It is eclipse season again, and the first eclipse of this will occur on either January 5 or 6, 2019, depending on where you live. This will be a partial eclipse and will be visible in Japan, Eastern Russia, Northeast China, most of Mongolia, and in the Southwest tip of Alaska.

As eclipses go, this one looks to be a rather mild one, and its influence will be mostly in the business and economic sphere. Let’s take a look at the chart for this Solar Eclipse.

Chart Analysis for Solar Eclipse of January 5-6, 2019

eclipse 1-5-19

The most obvious thing about this chart is that it contains a heavy concentration of Capricorn. Not only are the Sun and Moon in Capricorn, but Mercury and Saturn are there as well. Furthermore, Pluto is in this sign and is coming up upon the South Node.

This suggests that this eclipse will concern…

The Secret to White Teeth


Michael D. Turashoff

Image result for The Secret to White Teeth

Everyone wants a beautiful smile. Not only is a beautiful smile … well beautiful, it’s also a sign of healthy teeth and gums. If you already have a beautiful smile you’ll want to keep those pearly whites healthy and shining for years to come, so it’s very important to properly care for them.

A great smile can leave a lasting first impression. Here are some tips on how you can get that winning grin and keep it looking that way for life.

Brush and Floss Often

This tip should be obvious, but, it’s surprising how many people don’t brush and floss their teeth as often as they should. You should, at least, brush and floss your teeth after every meal to make sure you remove any food that may be stuck between your teeth.

Brushing often is so important that you should talk with the dentists at Dental Avenue in…

But first, my New Year’s greeting to you as I sent it around this year. The photo was taken in Rome for Christmas. It seems that I’m of a conviction that the way to be is green, loud and living wherever damn pleases you.

And now let’s open the door to my new blog. The first post is already up.

This is the header that might make people think it’s a food blog. It isn’t.

Unsurprisingly, the first post features a door. I invite you to enter. There is chocolate.

Thank you, everybody, for another lovely blogging year. By visiting me in this way and leaving your thoughts and footprints, you give me more that you know.
