If you’ve been watching the news recently, you may be aware that tensions between India and Pakistan are at an all-time high, following a terrorist attack on Indian military forces in Kashmir, Indian strikes in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and Pakistan’s capture of an Indian pilot. I’m not here to offer any political analysis, but something I have noticed on Twitter and other social media is jingoistic, hypermasculine nationalism, calling for strong military responses on both sides.
Caught in the middle, as has been in the case for too long, are the voices of Kashmiris — the people who are most affected by conflict between these two nuclear powers. Let’s not forget that Kashmir is the most militarized region in the world, and for decades Kashmiris have been unable…

It’s that time of the year again, for the most special of retrospections… year-in-review lists. Google’s top trending searches of 2018 show that natural disasters and celebrity deaths were atop our minds again this year, though nothing trended quite as much on our keyboards as the exciting World Cup.

Attitude is everything. Mindset if key. I bet you hear this frequently. You may even grasp the concept. It’s natural to be thankful when all is going well. But how do you maintain a grateful heart, even in the midst of trying times?
We go through seasons when life is good. Circumstances seem to align perfectly. The future feels brighter than ever, and everything falls into place.
It’s lovely to imagine a perfect world. It would be wonderful if every day were a sunny day. But it’s more likely that you’ll face some hard times along the way. Life happens. Trials come. Whatever the case, an attitude of gratitude keeps you on track.
Positivity isn’t something you catch. It’s a choice. Being thankful with a negative mindset is hard. In the same way, a positive mindset makes you more aware of the blessings in your…

A casual observer might have assumed that Benor Dorfinngil was in a good mood. He had a spring in his step and might even be whistling a merry tune.
There was good reason for his high spirits. Things were going rather well.
He had funds. Admittedly he’d ended up giving two of the ten alar coins to
Shena, on the grounds that the costs entailed in purchasing a dress might well come within the definition of legitimate expenses incurred during the investigation. On the other hand, he’d been firm with Tallis. Benor couldn’t see…

The Future of Digital Workforce Automation
I think about the future of work in the intelligent enterprise a lot. I have two brilliant kids just entering the workforce and a bright three year old. I’m always amazed by their creativity, resilience, and engagement in the mashed up real and virtual worlds they were born into. Disruptive technologies such as process automation with RPA and conversational AI offer the hope that my kids will never have to cut and paste across devices, apps, and reports.
Less mechanics, more design, faster time to market. That’s what scales. Orchestrating dynamic interactions among employees, intelligent bots, and robots is the quickest way to build your digital workforce.

Anyone who called for Marco Rubio to suffer Gaddafi’s fate would probably be arrested on the spot. From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:
Influential US Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Marco Rubio has tweeted a blatant death threat and incitement of violence against Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro. As of this writing the post has 13 thousand shares and counting.
The tweet consists of a “before” and “after” photo of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who in 2011 was mutilated to death in the streets following a US-led NATO intervention in Libya which was launched on false humanitarian pretexts. The first photo depicts Gaddafi alive and confident with a smile on his face, the second depicts him covered in blood following his capture by a militia group minutes before his death.

California professor reprimanded for saying police ‘need to be killed,’ reports say

A couple really good columns on this a couple weeks ago.
First, Jamelle Bouie:
Next came the president’s address to Congress. And this week at a rally in El Paso, Tex., Trump went after the “radical left,” blasting a caricature of progressive climate policies. “I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car, of taking away your airplane flights, of ‘Let’s hop a train to California,’” he said, bizarrely adding that under the Green New Deal resolution introduced by liberal Democrats, “You’re not allowed to own cows anymore.”
The clear expectation is that many or most Americans will recoil at any hint of “socialism,” either on principle or because of its association with Venezuela, which the administration has tried to elevate as a major adversary. That might have been true in Trump’s cultural and political touchstone, the 1980s, when Ronald Reagan’s hard-line anti-Communism defined American foreign and domestic policy…

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States sent two Navy ships through the Taiwan Strait on Monday as the U.S. military increased the frequency of movement through the strategic waterway despite opposition from China.
The voyage risks further raising tensions with China but will likely be viewed by self-ruled Taiwan as a sign of support from the Trump administration amid growing friction between Taipei and Beijing.
The movement comes as U.S. President Donald Trump said the United States and China were “very, very close” to a deal to end a months-long trade war that has slowed global growth and disrupted markets.
The U.S. Navy’s passage through the Taiwan Strait also came just days before a summit between Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
“The ships’ transit through the Taiwan Strait demonstrates the U.S. commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific,” the U.S. Pacific Fleet said in a…

Do you believe there’s power in one small step? And if you do, what’s stopping you from taking the first step?
I’ve been asking myself that very same question for close to 20 years. I’ve known all along what I was good at, what I wanted to do and what I felt I was supposed to do. Still, I couldn’t build the courage to take even the smallest of steps.
Yes, there were times when I dreamed about it. I thought about it. I visualized it. But every time I went to take a step something would stop me.

Like many others, I like to go on vacation. Going on holiday can be quite expensive, but you must not stay at the most expensive hotel, go on the most expensive restaurant or rent the coolest rental car.
There are many mix reasons to go on vacation, here I have 7 reasons out of 100 😉
1. New cultures
On vacation you can experience many different cultures that you didn’t know existed and that you couldn’t have experienced otherwise.
2. Sleep better
Because of no worries from everyday life, you sleep better. At least I do 😉
3.Memories/experience new places
Maybe you’ve always wanted to see historical things and places? Or just go over Besseggen in Norway?
4. New friends
You may be surprised at how easy it is to get to know people on vacation. Maybe you visit them in their home country on your next vacation?

- Princess Reema was vice president of women’s affairs at the General Sports Authority since 2016
- She has spoken publicly about the inclusion of women in the Saudi work force
Princess Reema bint Bandar Al-Saud, a leading entrepreneur and philanthropist, was named ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the US by royal decree on February 23, 2019,
Prior to her appointment, she was vice president of women’s affairs at the General Sports Authority (GSA), a position she held since 2016. She was also named president of the Saudi Federation for Community Sports in 2017 and appointed to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in August 2018.

They were in a bottomless pit
A demon with broken teeth began to drum
And all the other demons echoed
Deception and deception
In a moment a lady called worldliness and immorality took the stage
The reddishness of her lips
Was more inviting than Adam’s apple. Youths, even the old shook their waist
Dancing to the music of hell
Anger came suddenly to the stage
And unforgiveness held his hand like a newly married couple
Jealousy hurried up to the stage
Cause she had eyes for anger
And they began to sing
Causing the world to sin
With a melody that made the world to dance vigorously
Dancing to the music of hell
No one knew that drunkenness could sustain a note
Until he ended the note
And all the drunkards kept nodding their heads
To his meaningless songs
Lust hid herself in a secret chamber
Whispering into many hearts

WHAT A GREAT MESSAGE FROM KATE!

Our base parish has been so thankful these past two weeks. Last April, our active duty priest assigned to our base retired and we have been without an assigned priest since then. A very kind priest from town has been coming to help fill in, but has to basically fly in, say Mass and then zoom straight back to his parish to make the times work. We were grateful for the gift of the Sacrament, but there wasn’t much time for pastoral care. After much prayer, a civilian priest volunteered to come fill the void and his homilies the past two weeks have been very, very good.
His main point this week was so good, I had to take a minute and share it with you all. He asked us a question at the start: “In all our readings today, there was a man before God. Was he chosen, though…

I had a health scare last week that slapped me, once again, into awareness that I’m alone. I no longer have a husband; I no longer am married. After 56 years, I no longer have someone at home who’s there for me the minute something goes wrong.
There have been many challenges as I’ve assumed this role of widowhood, but they’ve been doable. Mostly. I’ve not finished yet with collecting tax documents, and that’s stretching my sanity; I much prefer working with words than numbers.
This health scare, though, was not doable, alone. The doctor’s office called that I needed to have a repeat mammogram. In my 77 years, I’ve never had to have a repeat. You can imagine where my mind went—all the way from the repeat test itself to the grave.
I had to have an immediate talk with myself. I could not deal with wild thoughts alone…

More on citizenship-by-investment and the incentives for expatriates in the Gulf who have no pathway to citizenship to pursue options:
There has been a huge increase in the number of wealthy expatriate residents in the UAE who are willing to spend hundreds of thousands to millions dirhams in exchange for a second passport — and the privilege to travel the world freely — despite allegations of fraud against some immigration firms.
In 2018, requests made in the UAE to obtain an alternative citizenship went up by 30 per cent compared to the previous year, according to Citizenship Invest, a Dubai-based company.
The bulk of these applications are from Asian and Middle Eastern nationals residing in the UAE, with Syrians topping the list and accounting for 14 per cent of total demand.
Many Pakistani nationals are also interested in acquiring residency rights from other countries, with their applications accounting for 12…

Hierarchical model–view–controller (HMVC) is a software architectural pattern, a variation of model–view–controller (MVC) similar to presentation–abstraction–control (PAC), that was published in 2000 in an article in JavaWorld Magazine, the authors apparently unawareof PAC, which was published 13 years earlier.
The controller has some oversight in that it selects first the model and then the view, realizing an approval mechanism by the controller. The model prevents the view from accessing the data source directly.
The largest practical benefit of using an HMVC architecture is the “widgetization” of content structures. An example might be comments, ratings, Twitter or blog RSS feed displays, or the display of shopping cart contents for an e-commerce website. It is essentially a piece of content that needs…

Does that mean you shouldn’t do those activities? That you should side line networking for the sake of measureable impacts?

by Sheri Rose ShepherdYou are the light of the world– like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. – Matthew 5:14-15
The first time I was invited to speak came from a woman who had totally humiliated me at the dinner table in front of my husband’s Bible professors. There I was, already intimidated by the educated people at the table, when one of the woman at our table said loudly, “I heard you were fat, Jewish, and on drugs. How did you ever become a Christian?” Of course all eyes were suddenly on me as I felt forced to share my life story in front of a table of strangers. I am not proud of my life before Christ…

EXCELLENT BLOG POST
A doctor specializing in gynecology is not only known for providing the right treatment and care for women through their phase of pregnancy but also for assessing and examining the female reproductive system or any parts in the female anatomy related to the same in cases other than pregnancy as well. Therefore the need for a gynecologist can arise at any hour of the day.
Role of a Gynecologist Doctor

The need for a doctor arises when a particular health condition arises. In women, it could be more intimidating as they are usually the home makers of the family even if they would be having a job as well. When the woman of the house falls sick the entire routine of the family gets adversely affected in case she does not have the benefit of any other domestic help.
Any problem related…

Soon flights will start landing in the new Ramon International Airport, which is situated about 20 km north of Eilat. Until then, flights are still landing in Ovda Airport, 60 km away from Eilat, which only makes it a little bit longer to reach the sunny city at the southern tip of Israel.
Eilat lies between the colorful mountains, the flat yellow Arava and the beautiful turquoise Red Sea. I’ve spent much of my childhood in Eilat and still visit the area once in a while, so I can assure you, there’s lots to see there! If you only have 3-5 days and want to experience the Israeli desert and the sunny city of Eilat, here are some travel ideas which could help you plan your trip:

Planning to come on the tightest budget and to hike through the beautiful landscapes of the Eilat Mountains and Arava?

Can you determine the next pattern in this pattern sequence?
In every row, the three images depict lines with 0, 1 and 2 intersections. That is, each row must contain an image with 0 intersection, an image with 1 intersection, and an image with 2 intersections.
The number of intersections of the images for the first two rows are in this order:
0, 2, 1
As for the third row:
1, 0, ?
It’s now easy to conclude that the answer has to be a figure that depicts 2 intersections. From the choices, figure C is the only choice that has 2 intersections.
A friend emailed this puzzle to me earlier this morning as a challenge. He said that only a “genius” could solve it (you know, like those claims you see on puzzles from Facebook). While I would admit that this made me think for a…

Well hello again Peeps! Have you got that drink ready? My chai is waiting!
- If we were sipping chai together I’d tell you that the illnesses seem to have subsided, but there are still coughs and sniffles abounding. We’ve had other staff off sick, and on Friday, there were only 10 children at my afternoon nursery session!
- If we were sipping chai together I’d tell you that work has been mega busy nevertheless, as, with staff shortages, it means a whole lot of juggling the human resource we have to fit the craziness of the timetable! But we coped. I’m writing this, aren’t I?
- If we were sipping chai together I’d mention that I had an interesting conversation with my Headteacher… about my future… and hopefully soon enough, I can tell you what might be on the cards for teacher Mrs Bhathal, aka me!

“Perception” is the way we look at things. It can be A Problem, A Person, A Phenomenon or even Life. What matters in every situation of our Life is our Perception.
Perceptions can be either Positive or Negative but can’t ever be categorized as Right or Wrong which is exactly what we do.
Not liking the way one sees things, we consider that perception to be a wrong one and often tend to tell the person that he lives with a wrong point of view. When in reality it’s not wrong but different than our’s. This assumption creates a kind of hatred towards us in the person’s mind, thus building walls between the two.
Rather, why not try building bridges instead of walls by accepting the others person’s perception as different and not wrong…
We are misguiding ourselves by differentiating Perceptions as Right or Wrong. Perceptions differ from person to…

A lot of folks approach the art of blogging as if it’s just about information. It’s about knowing who your readers are and helping them achieve their goals and dreams. It’s about offering them the information they need to go from point A to point B.
Well… did you ever have a teacher who was just awful? Boring? Made you hate whatever it was he was teaching?
Yup. Being a blogger(a good one at least) is not just about being a teacher…
Your content has to be entertaining.
If you don’t learn to entertain while you inform, your readers will find a blogger who can.

On 11 February, the United Nations, partners worldwide, women and girls will mark the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Why does it matter?
Recent studies suggest that 65 per cent of children entering primary school today will have jobs that do not yet exist. While more girls are attending school than before, girls are significantly under-represented in STEM subjects in many settings and they appear to lose interest in STEM subjects as they reach adolescence. Debunking the myths that girls do not like the sciences and other and gender stereotypes, along with investment in teacher trainings, gender-responsive technology and innovation can reverse these trends.
With Sustainable Development Goal 9, part of the Global Goals that world leaders agreed to in 2015 with a deadline of 2030, countries around the world have pledged to “build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”. Yet, a look…

Resilience – You Can’t Succeed Without It
#blog, #website, #success, #wordpress,
By Empower Great Success
There are many attributes that are associated with successful people. In my opinion one of the most valued is resilience. Resilience is defined as the the ability to recover from something. Oh how I love that word!
When I was younger I would set out to achieve a goal and give up because it didn’t happen as quickly as I thought it should happen. I would give up and start something else. As I got older, I realized that excellence takes time as well as hard work. That simple shift in my mindset changed the way that I looked at failure.
I’ve learned that whenever you start something new, you have to go into it with the mindset that it may take several attempts before you succeed. More often than not you should be prepared to ride it out until you succeed. As you start your planning stage, you should…

This blog post, in particular, was created for you to do a bit of introspection.
Now, if you are a seasoned blogger, you will without a doubt, know the type of blogger that you are.
However, if you have just started out blogging, you might not be entirely sure of what type of blogger you are.
So, without further ado, let us cross-examine the various types of blogging personalities.
