I learned as a caregiver, and having learned I was able to write a book for caregivers which will be a blessing to many. My point is, without the experience there could be no book.

It is a beautiful fact that we are because He is! Your life and mine are made better because we have the courage to share and thus to have empathy for others. I love stories where neighbor loses all but reaches out and helps neighbor. We have seen that recently in the flooded areas of Texas, the storm ravaged P.R., as well as here in the south. Let us not ask “Where is God?” But let us declare, “There is a God, and He loves us!” I like the idea that if you were the only person on earth, Jesus would have died just for you! That makes each of us, even the doubter, very special indeed.

I look at people and I see heroes in the making. We cannot imagine what we are able to overcome, to rise above, until we are slapped in the face with the unmentionable. .Yeah, heroes in the making and heroes walking among us in the form of our wonderful civil servants Blessings, Chaz InspirationBy Charles TowneAre you happy with where you are in life?  More importantly, let’s put it another way, are you contented with WHO you are?You, if you are like me, have likely endeavored to make some changes that you know would aid you in becoming a better, happier, healthier, more fulfilled you, but sooner or later you discover yourself slipping and sliding back into the quagmire and corruption of old habits, the old you.We are, after all, creatures of habit, and I am here to tell you, the devil takes advantage of this fact.  Change is not something we take kindly too.  Change, becoming transformed, taking on a different character other than who I have been all my life, is strange, and strange is uncomfortable, out of the norm, even painful for a time.  But believe me, it is worth it.  In the beginning of Dr. Phil McGraw’s life strategies workbook, the author writes, “Books don’t change people, people change people.”  I agree with his statement that books don’t change people, oh, they may serve as a catalyst for change but no more, but, my life experience has taught me that people, though they may inspire, even motivate us to change, they don’t change us either.I believe, and this is from my life experience, genuine, life-altering change, can only be ignited and fanned into flame by a spark from the divine.   In other words, we cannot, by will alone, become something that we are not.  Only God can transform an earthy, carnal character into something good, pure, kind, loving, and patient.The transformation of a man’s character is no less a miracle than a caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly.  For us, you and I, to break free of the chrysalis of sin into glory?  Oh my, how beautiful!  The root meaning of the word, change is, to cut off; to cut off that which offends, or to separate yourself from that which is offensive, therefore, real, genuine change calls for passionate commitment.  Are you ready for change? October 3, 2017 at 9:41 pm Turning 50, 10 years ago , ignited a passion to challenge who i thought I was. Faced with life changing circumstances challenging my inner spirit. The one I thought was my strength. Facing uncertainties of sickness & War. I was the support & caregiver for my soulmate battling Cancer;. The mom to a young Military Soldier deployed to the front lines of War, 2 wars. There was Joy in between, becoming a grandmother, to the 2 babies, my young military son left behind when he was at the front lines of war. The life of complacency was shaken to it s core., it started with my Retirement from NYC Police Department. Setting a course of slipping away fromChaotic environment , 21 years dealing with the highs & lows of living life serving others. Yes, I agree when we settle into comfort; our spirits are awaken challenging our resolve; our faith; our belief. Through Faith; Hope & a gazillion prayers negotiating daily, I gained strength to get through the storm because my inner spirit refused to give way to darkness, Faith is powerful . I am so thankful for the promises of our loving LORD! He tells us we can have the mind of Christ and that we can be transformed by the renewing of our minds and that, I believe, is done by hiding His word in our hearts! Blessings and may God continue to shine through you and give you strength for each day!

Father and son journalists gunned down outside town hall, probably by mistake

According to local reports, the gunmen may have mistaken Bonifacio Cruz for a municipal legal advisor with whom the two journalists had an appointment.“This double killing comes just 48 hours after the murder of a journalist in the northeast of the country,” the press freedom organisation said. “So far there is no evidence that their deaths were linked to their work as journalists, but these shootings highlight the climate of violence in which the press must operate in Mexico, the most hemisphere’s most dangerous country for the media.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We offer our condolences to the relatives and colleagues of Bonifacio and Alfonso Cruz and we hope that the investigators quickly establish whether they were killed by mistake, as some of the local media suspect, or whether they were deliberately targeted.”Yesterday morning, Bonifacio and Alfonso Cruz went to the office of Raymundo Olivares Díaz, the Chimalhuacán town hall’s legal advisor and former head of an association of small landowners. When they found that Olivares was not there, they went outside the town hall to wait, at which point two men in their 30s arrived and opened fire on them. The son was killed on the spot. The father died while being rushed to hospital. Two municipal employees were wounded in the shooting.The local media suspect that the gunmen mistook Bonifacio Cruz for Olivares, who recently received death threats in connection with a land dispute between peasants. But, when contacted by Reporters Without Borders, Chimalhuacán town hall spokesman Miguel Ángel González advised against jumping to conclusions. “We are not yet able to establish the motives for the murder,” he said. The prosecutor’s office of the state of Mexico has taken charge of the case.Launched 20 years ago, El Real’s news content consists above all of information put out by the state government and the town halls in the eastern part of the state. It does not do investigative reporting into any sensitive subjects. News Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

UN: ‘Concerning news’ vaccines may not work against variants

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest TAGS  Pinterest Facebook UN: ‘Concerning news’ vaccines may not work against variants Facebook Previous articleUnited Kingdom Data Centre Market Trends Report 2021 – ResearchAndMarkets.comNext articleSimplyBook.me Ltd. – Turning a Global Challenge into an Opportunity Digital AIM Web Supportcenter_img Twitter WhatsApp Local NewsBusinessUS NewsWorld News Twitter GENEVA (AP) — The head of the World Health Organization said Monday the emergence of new COVID-19 variants has raised questions about whether or not existing vaccines will work, calling it “concerning news” that the vaccines developed so far may be less effective against the variant first detected in South Africa. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a media briefing that South Africa’s decision on Sunday to suspend its vaccination campaign using the AstraZeneca vaccine is “a reminder that we need to do everything we can to reduce circulation of the virus with proven public health measures.” He said it was increasingly clear that vaccine manufacturers would need to tweak their existing shots to address the ongoing genetic evolution of the coronavirus, saying booster shots would most likely be necessary, especially since new variants of the virus are now spreading globally and appear likely to become the predominant strains. Tedros added that WHO expected to make a decision “in the next few days” on whether it would recommend an emergency use listing for the AstraZeneca vaccine. That designation would allow millions of doses to be shipped to poor countries as part of a U.N.-backed effort to distribute COVID-19 vaccines worldwide known as COVAX. Last week, Tedros said that more than three quarters of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered in just 10 countries and that immunization in nearly 130 countries had yet to start. Despite WHO’s aim of starting COVID-19 vaccination in poor countries at the same time as wealthy countries, COVAX hasn’t delivered any vaccine doses anywhere. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, WHO’s chief scientist, said people shouldn’t conclude from South Africa’s decision that the AstraZeneca vaccine doesn’t work. She said all of the available evidence to date shows the vaccines developed so far reduce deaths, hospitalizations and severe disease. Other COVID-19 vaccines developed by Novavax, Pfizer and BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson also appear to be less effective against the strain first identified in South Africa, although they may prevent severe disease. ——— Follow all of AP’s pandemic coverage at: https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-pandemic https://apnews.com/hub/coronavirus-vaccine https://apnews.com/UnderstandingtheOutbreak By Digital AIM Web Support – February 8, 2021 last_img read more

Earphunk Announces New Album & Tour, Premieres Leading Single ‘Moolah’ [Listen]

first_imgNew Orleans-based prog funk masters Earphunk have some big news to share, as the group has announced their fourth studio album. Titled Right Where I Belong, the new release aptly describes just how comfortable Earphunk has become with their own sound. The new six track release sees the group playing tighter than ever, and their work with famed producer Steve Albini only underlines the band’s explosive talent.“Working with Albini was exactly what our band needed,” says vocalist/guitarist Mark Hempe. “Before this album we had an entirely different approach for studio albums. Albini is concerned about recording just how it sounds so the listener almost feels like they are in the room with the band. He made us realize the importance of the take on a song as a whole. When you’re recording straight to tape you really try to play the best you can with no mistakes, which elevates the overall take as a band for each track. In albums past we could flub a part and just overdub later on, so having your best take wasn’t as much of a concern. I think the energy and sound of this album is the most authentic we have been able to achieve thus far in a studio endeavor.”The new album is due out on October 7th, and the band is heading out on the road for an extensive tour to get fans warmed up to the new release. They’re also offering their first taste of the new album by premiering the lead single, “Moolah,” exclusively via Live for Live Music. Tune into the funky new original track below.Lead guitarist Paul Provosty weighs in on the new album and production, saying, “Recording with Steve Albini was like a dream come true. You can tell, right off the bat, his sole purpose in life is to capture the most authentic representation of a band and their music. He built his studio from scratch in Chicago and most of his clientele are independent bands such as ourselves…it shows the type of person he is and what he truly cares about.He brought the best out in us and wasn’t afraid to tell us whether a take was bad or not. We had never worked with someone as honest and direct as him, and it brought the best out in us. Right Where I Belong really represents a huge chapter in the Earphunk book and Steve helped us capture it perfectly.”The Right Where I Belong tour kicks off on August 26th, and stretches all the way through to November 12th. There’s really no excuse not to catch Earphunk deliver their New Orleans-soaked progressive funkin’ music. The new album is due out on October 7th, and we can’t wait to jam on it.
