Ada Priscilla Nzimiro, MB ChB (April 30, 1923 – March 22, 1951), a graduate of the University of Glasgow, was the first Igbo woman doctor using modern medical practices in the Igbo region of Eastern Nigeria after her graduation in 1950.
Of Ugwuta (Oguta) ancestry, she was born in Port Harcourt to Richard Okwosha Nzimiro, a politician and the first indigenous mayor of Port Harcourt from 1956 till his death in 1959, and his wife Mary Nwametu Onumonu (1898–1993), a wealthy merchant (initiated by her mother Madam Ruth Onumonu, a wealthy oil palm merchant), political activist, and member of the NCNC who galvanised Igbo women for the Biafran war effort in the late 1960s and lost all her landed properties in Port Harcourt after the war due to her role in trying to divide the country.
Nzimiro left Nigeria for The University of Glasgow in 1945 to study Medicine and…

The Russian Levada Center is showing Putin’s approval rating as dramatically dipping.
There is no explanation given for the recent approval dip. The main reason, however, was midnight shocker of the pension age increase announcement during the Russian World Cup in June 2018.
Russia’s continuing economic downturn as a result of Western sanctions is also having an effect.
Russia’s crisis in Ukraine and especially in the Kerch Straits is certainly not helping.
The previous low for Putin was in December 2011, when hundreds of thousands took to the streets, protesting the falsification of the parliamentary elections of that year.

My reading note on a book by Joel Peterson, The 10 Laws of Trust.
We live in an interdependent world whereby in order to progress, trust is essential. If we can’t trust others, we cannot work toward shared or common goals.
This is true for all form of relationship, true for families, couples, team members and even nations of the world.
In the book, JetBlue chairman Joel Peterson with David A.Kaplan outline their 10 laws of trust. They further explain what trust means, how to promote it inside organizations and how to restore trust once broken.
An interesting reading indeed.
Main reading points in my reading notes:
- JetBlue chairman Joel Peterson details his “10 laws of trust.” First, trust begins with personal integrity.
- Trust involves respecting others.
- Trust means that you empower the people around you.
- Trust is about setting clear goals for your employees and holding them accountable.

REST IN PEACE, THE GREAT ACHIEVER!
REST IN PEACE, AN ICON!
REST IN PEACE, THE FORMAL PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!
HOUSTON (AP) — George H.W. Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94.
The World War II hero, who also presided during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the final months of the Cold War, died late Friday night at his Houston home, said family spokesman Jim McGrath. His wife of more than 70 years, Barbara Bush, died in April 2018.
The son of a senator and father of a president, Bush was the man with the golden resume who rose through the political ranks: from congressman to U.N. ambassador, Republican Party chairman to envoy to China, CIA director to two-term vice president under the hugely popular Ronald Reagan. The 1991 Gulf War…

“Wind” by Robert Okaji
Robert Okaji is a prolific poet who publishes his work at O at the Edges. In “Wind,” I read not only about air moving at speed and irrevocably changing everything it touches; I also sense the deep feeling and transformation of a passionate encounter. It’s a lovely poem made of many layers.
That it shudders through
and presages an untimely end,
that it transforms the night’s

messenger and message in one,
corporeal hosts entwined,

Often times we think about what the world and people will think about us and as a result we make all efforts to please them. We try to live up to their standard of life so we can get many friends. My friends, if you are in such situation it’s high time you break out from that shell of limitation. You have multiple potentials in you waiting to be exploited, don’t be discouraged. We are afraid to be ourselves because we are afraid we will become alone. We follow the crowd, so we don’t feel alone. But crowd doesn’t care one bit about you. Follow your heart. There’s no success in conformity.
Be yourself, break out from the shell of pleasing people. Good morning friends.
“Joshua Study – Five Qualities of Strong Leadership “
As Joshua prepared to lead more than two million Israelites into the Promised Land, he commanded everyone to pause in the midst of the excitement so that he could deliver this very important exhortation: “Purify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do great wonders among you.” The next morning, Joshua approached the priests and said, “Lift up the Ark of Covenant and lead the people across the river.”
These two statements reveal that, in order to successfully execute God’s plan, Joshua knew that he and his entire team had to embrace two key concepts. First, they needed to purify themselves before the Almighty. Joshua had learned the wisdom of depending on God for success. Because sin can prevent us from hearing God’s voice, Joshua made an ongoing choice to repent of sin and admonished his team to do the same.

I have learned in every circumstance that comes my way, to give thanks. In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give.We also need to remember from where God has brought us. When times get tough and you think you have nothing left to give, think about the goodness of God and all that He has done for you. Sometimes we need to rehearse our faith to get through times of doubt. We all doubt ourselves…

The three and a half hours before my flight back from studying abroad in Korea found me scrambling around my emptied dorm with the aplomb of a newly headless chicken. Mom’s incredulous voice, on speaker, ascended from waves of blankets.
Mom: You’re still packing?
Me: No, I already have all the stuff in the big suitcase and just need to transfer some of it to the smaller one.
So, sans editorialization, I was still packing. I’d bought a small suitcase for my second carry-on the night before, having realized there is, in fact, a limit to how many snacks you can fit in your luggage—for some reason I was under the impression that gifts for other people don’t count toward your packing total on a sort of karmic basis—and justified spending $80 on extra space for honey butter almonds I could probably just Amazon to the States.

Immigration policy will be a critical issue in forthcoming state (Victoria, NSW) and federal elections. The disproportionate impact of immigration on population growth and public infrastructure in Sydney and Melbourne is the key issue.
If we look to the example of another immigrant-friendly country, Canada, however, we can see how giving states and territories a greater role in immigration target setting and selection can help take the pressure off major cities without drastically reducing immigration rates.
Immigration certainly impacts on Australia’s population to a greater degree than most Western nations. Among OECD countries, only Switzerland and Luxembourg have a higher percentage of foreign-born people than Australia.
Today, 28% of the Australian population was born overseas. The key issue…

Even though the website is supposed to have public input and comments, it seems more like a public service announcement for the company or organization you are researching. Before you leave the site, you say to yourself, “What’s up with this site?” Have you ever thought that it could be a site set up by people who are Astroturfing? Unless you are familiar with the word, you probably won’t be thinking in those terms.

In the U.S., Thanksgiving is upon us, with the other December holidays on its heels. It’s a good time to add some festive cheer to your site (and if you’re running a business, to encourage holiday sales)! Visual changes like a seasonal header image or a new color palette are nice, but you can also use holiday-specific content and design to drive engagement.

There’s no logical reason why Jews cannot live alongside Palestinian Muslims.
They are not natural enemies.
Indeed, they are brothers.
Mohammed modeled Islam off Judaism, which helps explain why both share similar traits and customs.
Certainly they are not a threat to each other operationally.
Here is why.
Both religions are rules oriented. To be a member means that one must obey many procedures, dictates and customs.
Learning such rules takes time and extensive acculturation.
As such, it isn’t likely that a member of one is going to abandon his religion in order to learn another which also has many rules, but different, requiring a hefty investment of time.
People are generally lazy.
It’s much more likely that a member of one of these religions will join Christianity which has few rules.
Other than accepting Christ as your savior, doing unto others…

I know, I know, it looks so much like that’s what’s happening. The mouse is clearly interested; the crows walks the direction the mouse exited to, drops food, and leaves. But rather than sharing, this is simply a coincidental intersection of two animals trying to claim what they can.
First, a little bit of background information: In animal behavior, food sharing is defined as the transfer of a defendable food item from one individual to another, or the joint use of a monopolized item.1 Obviously these definitions are both broad and somewhat subjective. Because of this, you’ll see a range in how different papers describe how common this behavior is. Some might say it occurs frequently, while others say it is rare depending on if they’re including tolerated theft, food transfers during courtship, etc. Among corvids, evidence of food sharing has been suggested in ravens, rooks, scrub-jays and northwestern…

The family is the foundational building block of every society. To use an analogy that my Dad taught me, families are like cells in a body. When enough cells become damaged or die, the body deteriorates and eventually dies. In this analogy, society is the body. It can be said, then, that when enough families weaken, society collapses. Not only is this a clever analogy, but it is a truthful one – the preservation of our society depends upon the preservation of the traditional family unit.
Apart from a nation’s faith in God, nothing is more important than its families. If memory serves, I once saw a monument in Salt Lake City, Utah with the inscription: “No nation rises above its homes.” A truer statement has never been etched in stone. It is in the home that habits are formed and faith is instilled, whether for good or ill. It…

Jehovah Mekoddishkem or M’Kaddesh means The Lord who sanctifies.
In Leviticus 20:7-8, The Lord makes it clear that He alone has the ability to cleanse, sanctify and make us holy. Jesus’ work on the cross brought about justification. It was a once and done event. Sanctification on the other hand isn’t.
What is Sanctification?
Sanctification is derived from the word sanctity which means to set apart, to separate. Sanctification therefore involves separation, consecration, purification for a particular purpose. Sanctification isn’t a once and done event. It is a continuous process. Justification happened at the cross for the purpose of eternity. Sanctification is what happens between the cross and eternity.
Many of us love the concept and the idea of justification. However Sanctification doesn’t get equal accolade because it involves a lot of dying to flesh. It involves change which is something we don’t naturally embrace. Sanctification is holiness.

QUOTABLE QUOTE: “Poverty is a mental condition; what if all the poor people of the world changed their minds?” ~Tracy Davison
As we remember Billy Graham on what would have been his 100th birthday, we’re sharing words of wisdom from the world-renowned evangelist who is now spending eternity with Jesus.
The following message from Billy Graham is taken from the foreword of Franklin Graham’s newly released book Through My Father’s Eyes, which focuses on the lessons he learned from his father.
Someday I hope to write a book on the subject of “The End.” When we all reach the end of our earthly journey, we will have just begun.
The word departure literally means “to pull up anchor and set sail.” Everything that happens prior to death is a preparation for the final voyage. Death marks the beginning, not the end. It is our journey to God.
For centuries mankind has been on an incredible journey taking him across every generation and through every conceivable experience in his search for God.

Doesn’t the Bible contradict what we’ve learned from science?
This might surprise you: most of the battles happening today are not between science and the Bible—they’re between science and science!
Or, perhaps more accurately, the conflict is between various philosophies of science. Specifically, there is a war raging between those who try to hold science hostage to naturalistic causes only (as opposed to considering supernatural causes) and those who want to stay open to any and all causes indicated by the evidence (including the supernatural). All too often, the first group tries to write God out of the equation even before considering the facts.
And unfortunately, this group currently has the most influence at many of our colleges and universities. This can lead to the unwarranted conclusion that science has somehow disproven the existence of a divine being, or that thinking people simply can’t take spiritual beliefs seriously. In reality, the scientific evidence…

There is no substitute for inner peace.

DIGITAL MONEY REVOLUTION By Uper Gabriel and Michael Ogazie. By theoretical insights, there are three types of money: *There is gold – God’s money. *There is the dollar – governments’ money. *Then the newest type of money...

LONGING FOR YOU
The stairs are becoming dusty
The carpet has turned pale
Though the windows are close
I still hear the sound of the wind
That tries to pull me away
from what we shared
Even though I erred
I still held to the promise
Of your love
I’m longing for you
You promised to return
And in turn
I have waited
For the touch of your peace
That thrills my spirit
healing the pain of my heart
Cleansing my guilt
With triumphant grace
I’m longing for you
I hear sounds on the stairs
Quickly I rush to check
For in your presence
There is fullness of joy
I kept some flowers for you
Which I’ll offer
When you will come to take me home
Whole and complete in you

I found someone
Whom I replaced with my papers and pen
Never bothered getting it from my hiding place,
Never bothered updating it about my current phase;
Not until now, where here I am again,
Isolated in a room sobbing
Locked out of the world that’s daunting
Realizing how stupid I was
For letting myself be vulnerable,
Too much of being open has pained me once again
Many of us fell in love with haiku trying our hands at poetry for the first time in elementary school. The 17-syllable form is simple and accessible, yet offers room for depth, nuance, and beauty in a tiny space. Today, we’re delighted to share five favorite haiku from poets around WordPress.com.
“To be a poet is a condition, not a profession.”
— Robert Graves
wind rustles the leaves
strips the branches down to bark
then skeletons dance

Through the window bars,
the moon appears in one piece.
She decides to leave.

1. What Is Pride?
There is nothing into which the heart of man so easily falls as PRIDE, and yet there is no vice which is more frequently, more emphatically, and more eloquently condemned in Scripture.
Pride is a groundless thing. It standeth on the sands; or worse than that, it puts its foot on the billows which yield beneath its tread; or, worse still, it stands on bubbles, which soon must burst beneath its feet. Of all things pride has the worst foothold; it has no solid rock on earth whereon to place itself. We have reasons for almost everything, but we have no reasons for pride. Pride is a thing which should be unnatural to us, for we have nothing to be proud of.
Again, it is a brainless thing as well as a groundless thing; for it brings no profit with it. There is no wisdom in…

And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee. for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 1:19 (KJV)
As long as we live and dwell in this world, unending battles will always come to stop our journey. Battles against our faith, battles against our minds, battle against our blessings and aspirations. The devil whom Christ defeated more than 2000 years ago is the in the business of fighting against God’s elect. So then do not be surprised when you see challenges that may seem insurmountable. When I began to ask my self questions about when all this battles will come to an end. He ushered this word in to heart not just for me but for everyone who believes.

In the midst of the stillness
I try to be calm
But yet there’s a turbulence
I try to be mute
But right inside
There’s a war of words
My eyes searched for the truth
That cannot be explained by spoken words
Then you came with your whispers of love
I won’t forget
As the sun strokes my sleekly skin
Your overwhelming presence
Feels my spirit
Standing between my doubts
Wiping the tears of my pain
Just as when my mother comforted me
Your love wraps me
Protecting the gem in me
I won’t forget
Though the storm chases me
With persistent tides
Though the stars refuse to appear
In my darkest nights
Though the fiery beast of this world
Chase my soul
With fierceness of destruction
And the temporary pleasures of this world
In your peace which comforts
My raging heart will I rest
That I won’t forget

Beautiful world from the beautiful God!
A very warm welcome to the RENEW Blog! We’re on week two and today we will be looking at John chapter 3. Rachael shares her thoughts on these scriptures and we pray that it really resonates with you.
Jesus Teaches Nicodemus
John Chapter 3:1-15
Now there was a Pharisee, a man named Nicodemus who was a member of the Jewish ruling council.2 He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”
3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”
4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”

As I am just waking, blessed with a new day, I lie and wonder why some insist on rejecting Jesus? Why do they do everything they possibly can to disprove or stray from His teachings?
Why do they accept that there are “many ways to God,” but reject the words of Jesus when He said, “I AM THE WAY.” Is their way somehow a better way?
Is it the rules that are hard to follow? Is it the lack of proof for His existence? Is it because of the lack of evidence for a Creator, even though the evidence is in His creations? Is it just easier to not think about such a subject, or do they believe that no one is in need a Savior to be in good standing with a Holy God? Do they think that a need for a god is ludicrous? Maybe they haven’t read…

“God has said, “Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
Some years ago I hurled my mobile phone across the room. Why it had developed the frustrating habit of switching off in the middle of calls and of message retrieval I failed to understand. It made me feel angry, frustrated and got at – by whom I’m not sure – but definitely persecuted. I didn’t lose control totally, but hurled it purposefully into an armchair at full force. From there it bounced out and lay on the floor … silent. I thought that it should at least have whimpered! I felt relieved, justified … and a little bit childish. That last emotion I chose to ignore.
Some days later I remembered the incident. As I did God spoke clearly into my mind. He said to me,
“I will never do that to you! I…
