Martin, a Dutch friend did a video on his page http://mavadelo.wordpress.com/2014/03/11/the-wolfpack-an-introduction/ it is about my friends and our Wolf Pack we all make. Anyone can join, it is fun. This video, MARTIN..JUST WOW MATE!! WOW, WOW, WOW!
Sentinel Sentinels are to ensure that the pack is safe by patrolling the territory and watching the movements of the surroundings. They are to make sure that no intruders enter the clearing. In doing so, it is a Sentinel’s responsibility to greet new visitors and learn why they are here and where they come from. Being in that position, it is the Sentinel’s job to make sure each new visitor that comes into the clearing has good intentions as well. When the Sentinel is not present within the clearing or if there is none, the greeting responsibilities go to all Adult Pack members. Sentinels also make sure that the Pack Members keep themselves out of trouble, and that no fights break out between visiting wolves (or other pack members), warning them of the rules. After the warning, the Sentinel reserves the right to kick a continually aggressive or provoking wolf out of the channel and set a temporary ban.
I can say many things about my friends here but when I was lost they didn’t lose sight of me, they kept their eye out for me. When I came back it was to open arms. I have been friends with these peeps since day one on Word Press and t he constant is LOVE. Friendship so true that no distance between modems can split us. I am proud to be part of these guys lives and our Wolf Pack, nobody snigger because we need friends all over. I am stunned at the love and patience we show each other. When one goes down, we all go down.
The internet can be something you know x

Malaysian authorities have been accused of holding back information about why a plane carrying 239 people vanished in Southeast Asia. Aviation experts told Sky News pilot suicide is a possible explanation, although Malaysia Airlines chiefs say there is “no reason to believe” crew had anything to do with the Boeing 777-200′s disappearance. Five days on from its disappearance, there is still no sign of flight MH370, despite a massive search and hundreds of planes flying over the area. As the mystery deepened, Australian aviation consultant Neil Hansford accused the Malaysian government of not telling the full story of what happened. He told UK Media: “I’m finding in any interviews I’m doing with Malaysians, there is a fair bit of spin, there’s a fair bit of denial of the boarding procedures and the manifest checking with the stolen passport list – and inconsistencies all the time.
“I think you’re now finding the Malaysian authorities have got a lot to answer for.” He said when he heard the news on Saturday, he suspected it was one of three things. The first is that the aircraft was hit by a military aircraft or military ordnance and had a catastrophic failure. The second is that there was a bomb on board. ”Nothing that I’m hearing is giving me any warmth about the two passengers with the stolen passports,” he said. ”If they were heading for Germany, why would they be on a Malaysian aircraft going to China? It just doesn’t make sense.”
Mr Hansford’s third scenario – and the most likely in his view – is pilot suicide. ”What I’ve advocated all along is what I call the ‘Silk Air situation’ where the captain in that situation waited until the first officer left the flight deck, slammed the door and effectively committed suicide, taking everybody with him,” he said. ”Now I don’t know which pilot was flying, whether it was the captain or the first officer, but all of this starts to indicate why we cannot find any wreckage, and why the aircraft didn’t make scheduled contact with control.” John Hansman, professor of aeronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also believes pilot suicide is a possibility. The plane vanished around an hour into its flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
According to military radar, the plane turned back from its scheduled route, but this has now been denied by the Malaysian air force. Mr Hansman said: “If the military radar is correct, and we don’t know for sure if they were tracking the right target … it would be consistent with an intentional act by someone in the cockpit to turn off both the transponder and turn the aircraft on to a new course.” Another theory is there was pressurisation failure and the pilots put on oxygen masks and turned back to Kuala Lumpur before passing out. But both experts believe this is unlikely. Mr Hansford said: “If it had turned back, the Malaysian air force would have gone into the skies. The aircraft was allegedly not emitting any transponder signals, so it would have been a foreign aircraft over Malaysia.” ”There’s no technical or mechanical failure, or some other reason that I can come up with, which would cause an aircraft to both lose its transponder, still fly and change course,” added Mr Hansman. ”So it doesn’t appear to be a crew incapacitation or anything like that.”
I am a happy man in my relationship with Dawn and I am blessed in all I have. I can’t sit here and lie, I love the woman with all my soul. But sometimes I feel I need more love, this is no slight on the love and care Dawn gives me, just something I feel inside. I know if I took a step closer to Dawn she would step forward also and I love that
My heart as I grow older I just need loved and want to love, as I free myself from medication and awaken to the World and all its ill’s and problems I just want love. Dawn shows and gives me love but sometimes I need to take a step forward and treat her as the princes she is. I am lucky to have her and I hope she feels the same. It is nearly 7am here as I type and I am listening to a song that breaks my heart and makes it want to open up to Dawn more. I don’t know if I am making sense to even myself here
I am stuck in pain a lot of the time and I cry a lot when I can’t be the love I need to be and the love I need back but this is a moment right? We come through them. Having the girls has made it hard for Dawn and I to spend time together but this will pass and we both knew the deal when we had the girls. It was going to be hard but rewarding all the same. These 2 little bundles of love make you love, they make you step into love and want to be loved more.
Dawn if you do read this please understand I love you with no conditions at all I just love you with all parts of my soul and all my mind. You are my rock, my presence and my reason for being. Had you not entered my life when I was 13 years old I have no idea where I would be today. If I was to guess honey I think I would be in a bad place if at all I was in any place. I tell you these things but this morning I want to share you with my world here where I write and have friends. I am proud and honoured you choose me to be your man, I am happy and blessed a soul so loving as yours picked mine and did so at a time when my heart was as rough as a old nail.
I owe you everything and all things. I am sorry my pain came between us but sweetie you must know I pine some days when we can’t just cuddle up and watch TV or lay in bed staring into each other’s eyes like we did when we were kids. You told me I was different from other guys when we were kids and I pray today you still see that lost kid who needs you to guide me and show me love. My heart is broken today as it was yesterday but not because I lost you but because I know I still have you, when I step towards you, step also honey
You know I listen to a song a lot and this song I have shared with this page many times and I play it loud sometimes and I know you know I am aiming the noise right at you. We just had a tough month and here we are together still. I truly believe we are forever, when we met you thought my chat up line was funny when I said “We will spend a life together” and here we are, 25 years later with 4 kids. I promised you the World and I hope I delivered, I promised I would never leave and I didn’t, you promised to love me and you do. I won’t say more as we need to keep something for us. I want to fall in love with you again x lol Truly I do, and I want the world to know it. I am no writer in any sense of the word, I just am better at writing my feelings at the moment but I promise when I step towards you I need to know you will step forward also, and I know you will
I want to wrap the moon around us x
Dawn, I need you x Lets step x
This is the picture that will haunt and follow you for the rest of your life. Just when you think it’s behind you, you’ll find it right in front of you. Because, the internet.
When all else fails, squint your eyes. Because if you can’t see them, maybe they can’t see you.
You might think that the costumes and the whole charade is about self expression, but would you be surprised if it was all a clever marketing ploy? After all, would an unattractive female singer rise to such fame with out a gimmick to distract from this face?

OAK BROOK, IL—Saying that the company is proud to support its customers in their darkest hour of sorrow, McDonald’s representatives announced Tuesday that the fast food chain will begin offering lower bereavement pricing to patrons who have recently lost a loved one. “We all know the pain of losing a family member, and we here at McDonald’s want to help assuage the anguish and stress of this difficult emotional period by offering grieving customers 10 percent off our signature burgers and premium McWraps, including our Bacon Habanero Ranch Quarter Pounder, which usually retails at $3.99, for just $3.59,” said McDonald’s spokesperson Troy Calhoun, noting that customers would simply have to supply the cashier or drive-thru attendant with the name and relationship of the deceased as well as a funeral home, hospice, or hospital contact number to receive the discount and a complimentary small soft drink. “During your family’s time of mourning, you can take solace in knowing that McDonald’s compassion discounts extend even to our seasonal promotional items, which currently include our spicy and satisfying bone-in Mighty Wings and our popular Shamrock Shake. In hard times such as these, let McDonald’s be your comfort.” Calhoun added that the offer is valid only within the first seven days of death and does not apply to Dollar Menu items
The two men holding fake passports who boarded the Malaysian airliner that vanished last week were Iranian nationals and had no apparent links to terrorist groups, officials say.
- Military radar suggests plane turned back and flew some distance off course to the west
- Interpol believe disappearance of Malaysia Airlines plane was not a terrorist incident
- Police chief and Interpol say two men holding false passports were Iranian nationals, named as Nour Mohammad Mehrdad and Delvar Suyed Mohammad Reza
- The pair had swapped their passports in Kuala Lumpur and used stolen Italian and Austrian passports
Malaysia’s military said it believed that a jetliner missing for almost four days had turned and flown hundreds of kilometres to the west after it last made contact
with civilian air traffic control off the country’s east coast. A massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew. A senior military officer told Reuters: “It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait.” The Strait of Malacca, one of the world’s busiest shipping channels, runs along Malaysia’s west coast. When it lost contact with civilian air traffic control, the plane was roughly midway between Malaysia’s east coast town of Kota Bharu and the southern tip of Vietnam, flying at 35,000 ft (10,670 metres). Earlier on Tuesday, officials ruled out the theory that the two men travelling on false passports were linked to terrorism. Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar named one of the men travelling on a false passport as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad, 18, and said he was probably migrating to Germany. Interpol named the second man as Delavar Seyed Mohammadreza, 29.
‘No terror link’
Mr Bakar said: “To date we have uncovered two passengers which was travelling on a stolen passport. ”We have identified one of them… and this one that we have identified is an Iranian by the name of Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad. ”He is 19 years old and he is an Iranian – we believe that he is an Iranian. We have been checking his background. We have also checked him with other police organisation on his profile, and we believe that he is not likely to be a member of any terrorist group. ”And we believe that he is trying to migrate to Germany.”
Police have also said they were investigating whether any passengers or crew on the plane had personal or psychological problems that might explain its disappearance, along with the possibility of a hijack, sabotage or mechanical failure
Mr Bakar also said they were looking at whether “psychological problems” of passengers or crew played a role in MH370′s disappearance. He said: “We are looking into four areas. One is hijacking, two sabotage, three psychological problem of the passengers and crew, and four: personal problems among the passengers and crew.” The head of international police agency Interpol later said he did not believe the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines plane was a terrorist incident. ”The more information we get, the more we are inclined to conclude it is not a terrorist incident,” said Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble. Meanwhile, the search was widened on Tuesday to a larger swathe of the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, around where the plane lost radio contact and vanished from radar screens. But searches were also being conducted on the western coast of Malaysia and up north-west towards the Andaman Sea – based on a theory that the plane may have flown on for some time after deviating from its flight path. Even that information has not been clearly confirmed, and investigators and intelligence sources say the fate of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is still shrouded in mystery.
We are born into this world a brand new canvas
We are painted by the teachings by our teachers
As we grow we gain wisdom from a higher power
We become who we are surrounded by…That’s life
As we go through life we see blood shed
As we age we struggle with our torments
The demons of our past do haunt us nightly
We become something else…That’s life
We have two paths we must choose to wonder
One is left one is right, one is right one is wrong
We learn right from wrong as our soul does tell us
In the end we battle demons we created…That’s life
Sometimes at night we see the eyes of the dead
It torments us and prays us like the beast in a book
We have no escape, there is no escaping our wrongs
One thing I learn is I can’t change the past…That’s life
I can’t change what happened and bring people back
I can only keep moving forward and try to be happy
I look around at my partner my kids and my life
I realise the pain was all worth it but the demons they come..That’s life
In the end we can see hell and heaven all at once
I have dined with the devil and felt Gods divine love
I truly believe we can all make up for our failings
The vision of that last gaze and breath will never leave me..That’s life
Some call this Karma and maybe they are right
I call it life because there are never mistakes
We live in a moment and try to feel through it
Then we realise all we ever do is feel one moment
Life is our moment our truth and our love..That’s life
There is only one certainly for us all, be it God or Satan
If I am to meet Satan again for my errors in judgment
All I ask from God is to look at what happened
And in the end if the book is true, he decides ..That’s life
A man travelling on a stolen passport on a missing Malaysian jet was a young Iranian who is not believed to have terrorist links, Malaysian police say. They say the 19-year-old – named as Pouria Nour Mohammad Mehrdad – was probably migrating to Germany. Investigations are continuing into a second man using stolen documents. The Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 vanished on Saturday shortly after it left Kuala Lumpur. There were 239 people on board
Experts have said the presence of two people with stolen passports on a plane was a breach of security, but is relatively common in a region regarded as a hub for illegal migration.
Malaysia’s police chief Inspector Gen Khalid Abu Bakar said the young Iranian was “not likely to be a member of a terrorist group”, adding that the authorities were in contact with his mother in Germany, who had been expecting her son to arrive in Frankfurt. The authorities’ statement supports an account given to the BBC by a young Iranian in Kuala Lumpur who says he was a school-friend of one of the men who boarded the airliner using a stolen passport. He says the friend and another Iranian, also using a stolen passport, stayed with him before taking the Malaysia Airlines flight, and that they had hoped to settle in Europe. Reports from Thailand suggest that the tickets of the two men, routing them to Amsterdam via Beijing, had been bought through a Thai travel agent and an Iranian middleman.
Officials say they still have no idea what went wrong.
None of the debris and oil slicks spotted in the water so far have proven to be linked to the disappearance. Four areas of investigation for the disappearance of the aircraft were focused on the possibility of human agency, the police chief said: hijacking, sabotage, psychological problems or personal problems with passengers or crew. The passengers on the flight were of 14 different nationalities. Two-thirds were from China, while others were from elsewhere in Asia, North America and Europe. Meanwhile search teams have expanded their scope to the Straits of Malacca. Malaysian civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said that the search was ongoing “on both sides” of the peninsula. Authorities said late on Monday that they were expanding the search area from 50 nautical miles from where the plane had disappeared – over waters between Malaysia and Vietnam – to 100 nautical miles (115 miles; 185km).
Some good news perhaps!
Israel and Arab states held their third round of exploratory talks in the Swiss resort of Glion last month that are focused on establishing a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East, according to a participant.
The discussions, largely kept from the public eye, are being held under the auspices of the United Nations and led by a Finnish diplomat, Jaakko Laajava. The dialogue was running in parallel to the negotiations in Vienna between Iran and global powers that are aimed at scaling back Tehran’s nuclear program.
The participant in the talks, and diplomats briefed on them, downplayed the potential for any major breakthroughs in the near term. But they said the sustained presence of midranked Israeli and Arab diplomats discussing the nuclear issue is encouraging.
The first round of talks last October was also held in Glion, a mountain retreat overlooking Lake Geneva. The U.N. empowered Mr. Laajava to try and stage a formal conference on the establishment of a nuclear-free Mideast. The U.N.’s Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference mandated it in 2010.
“It’s definitely been useful,” said a Mideast diplomat who took part in the most recent round in February.
Israel has agreed to take part in the exploratory talks despite concerns the Jewish state will be singled out by Arab government. Israel is believed to have the only nuclear-weapons arsenal in the Mideast, but its government refuses to confirm or deny them.
Iran sent a low-level diplomat to the first round in Glion, but hasn’t attended the last two sessions, according to diplomats. The Iranian official told participants he was only in attendance to “observe” the discussions.
U.N. officials hope progress in the negotiations to scale back Tehran’s nuclear program can have wider repercussions in the region. Israel and most Arab governments are concerned Tehran is developing nuclear weapons that could set off a larger arms race in the region. Iran says its nuclear program is solely for civilian purposes.
Israel and the U.S. both say they support the formal establishment of a nuclear-weapons free zone in the Mideast. But both countries said such declaration was unlikely until Israel forges peace agreements with the Palestinians and its other Arab neighbors, Lebanon and Syria.
BREAKING NEWS * Russia’s parliament will discuss legislation on Crimea joining the Russian Federation, Russia’s state-run RIA-Novosti reports.
Sanctions will be imposed on Russia within days unless it loosens its grip on the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, David Cameron announced today.
The City of London and the defence industry could suffer as a result Britain has learnt from history that it must “stand up to aggression” and cannot stand by “when nations are trampled over”, the Prime Minister said. Britain, the EU and the US are drawing up a list of Russian officials who will see their off-shore bank accounts frozen and banned from travelling to the West unless it steps back from annexing the Crimean peninsula. Defence co-operation is also under review, with a presumption that arms contracts will be scrapped. Mr Cameron, speaking after talks in Hanover with German President Angela Merkel, said he would “ratchet up the pressure” on Vladimir Putin if he attempts to “legitimise” a Russian-backed referendum on Crimea leaving Ukraine on Sunday.
Downing Street said that any sanctions would be aimed at individuals but sources said that this would be unlikely to mean President Putin could be targeted.
A “contact group” has been set up to test whether Russia is prepared to negotiate. He said: “We should recognise that, yes, there may be consequences from some of these things, consequences perhaps for the City of London, consequences perhaps for some European defence industries or indeed some energy interests around Europe or other interests around Europe. ”But we should proceed knowing that what we are doing is sensible, legitimate, proportionate, consistent and right.” “I am not interested in a tug of war. Ukraine should be able to choose its own future and act as a bridge between Russia and Europe,” Mr Cameron told the Commons. “Britain’s own future depends on a world where countries obey the rules. “In Europe we have spent the last 70 years working to keep the peace – and we know from history that turning a blind eye when nations are trampled over stores up greater problems for the longer term. We must stand up to aggression, uphold international law, and support the Ukrainian government and the Ukrainian people who want the freedom to choose their own future.” Russia could be expelled from the G8 group of developed nations if President Putin does not comply, he said. Preparations for the meeting in Sochi, southern Russia, in June have been put on hold. Russia has been a member of the group since 1998
The missing Malaysia Airlines flight may be proving so hard to find because it vanished in an aviation “black spot”, an expert has told Media today. Former Boeing 777 instructor and United Airlines captain Ross Aimer said it was “disturbing” that there had been no distress call from flight MH370′s cockpit and that the plane’s emergency locator transmitters had not sent any signals. He said: “These are very sophisticated equipment that should have been working under any condition – in the water, in the jungle, after a fire, after an explosion – and none of them have talked to the outside world yet. ”There are spots in the world however, that are called blind spots, where you can not communicate for some reason. ”Unfortunately, that area near Vietnam, over the Gulf of Thailand, those are some of the black spots, so perhaps at that time there was no data transmission between the aircraft and the airline.” Flight MH370 vanished from radar screens early on Saturday about one hour into a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. When it last made contact, the Malaysia Airlines jet was at cruising altitude, 11km (35,000 feet) above sea level, largely considered the safest part of a flight.
While there is still no confirmation that the Boeing 777-200 crashed, aviation experts have put forward possible causes of its disappearance including a terrorist attack, extreme turbulence, human error or even suicide. The failure of the pilots to send a distress signal has given rise to speculation there was a sudden catastrophe – possibly caused by a mechanical failure or an explosion. Former Navy pilot Dr Simon Mitchell has told Sky News that despite flying becoming safer over the years, mistakes are still made. ”We’ve expended billions of dollars on developing very sophisticated aids to make the life of the pilot safer and more straight-forward, but there are still opportunities whereby mistakes can be made,” he said. Investigations into Air France flight 447 that plunged into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009, killing 228 people, eventually concluded that both technical and human error were to blame for the disaster.
Closer to the area where MH370 vanished, Adam Air flight 574 with 102 people on board disappeared in January 2007, also at its cruise phase, during a domestic flight in Indonesia. Authorities found the pilots lost control after becoming preoccupied with malfunctioning navigational equipment. The lack of wreckage from MH370 also suggests a high-altitude disaster which spread debris across an area too wide to be easily detected. Aviation experts say the size of the debris field will be one of the first indicators of what happened. A smaller field would indicate the plane probably fell intact, breaking up upon impact with the water. A large, widespread field would signal the plane likely broke apart at a high elevation, perhaps because of a bomb or a massive air frame failure
But sudden, accidental structural failures are considered extremely unlikely in today’s passenger aircraft. This is especially so with the Boeing 777-200, which has one of the best safety records of any jet. Authorities have not ruled out terrorism or hijacking though, with suspicions over two of the passengers found to be travelling on stolen passports. ”There are two categories of people who use these (stolen passports) – criminals and terrorists,” Rohan Gunaratna, a terrorism expert at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, said. In the 1988 Lockerbie bombing, there was substantial wreckage despite it being a mid-air explosion, and claims of responsibility came soon after the disaster.
But no-one has come forward to claim the Malaysia incident as their attack. Whatever caused the apparent crash, there would be some debris – but it could take a while to find. It took two years to find the main wreckage of the Air France plane plunged into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009, killing 228 people. An Indonesian navy ship detected metal on the ocean floor a week after the Adam Air flight disappeared in 2007. It was a further two weeks before the US Navy picked up signals from the flight data and cockpit recorders, and seven months for the black box to be recovered.
The Malaysian jet could have made a U-turn shortly before it vanished, officials say, adding one more level of uncertainty to the effort to find it. It is thought the plane could be hundreds of miles from where it was last detected, and the search has been widened in the hope of finding the plane. Just about every major jet to disappear in the modern era has eventually been found. The rare exceptions did not involve passengers. In September 1990, a Boeing 727 owned by the Peruvian Faucett Airlines ditched into the North Atlantic after running out of fuel on its way to Miami. The accident was attributed to poor pilot planning and the wreck was never recovered. More mysterious was the disappearance of another Boeing 727 being used to transport diesel fuel to diamond mines in Africa. The owners had numerous financial problems and the plane took off without clearance and with its transponder turned off. It is believed to have crashed in the Atlantic Ocean. One theory, never proven, is that it was stolen so the owner could collect insurance.
Many don’t see fascism as it is so in your face. Many see Nazism as men is war suits and black boots. New age fascism for me is what the USA is today, it is owned by companies. Companies who put Presidents into power and the Presidents when in power look after the companies that gave them money to get into power
All I read and listen to these days when it comes to the USA is race and religion and things like “Black people looted during Katrina” where the President didn’t care and Religious people wanting to talk about Abortion and gay marriage before they talk about how they are getting screwed for EVERY penny they own
To understand new age fascism is to understand it as fascism wears Nike shoes and Adidas t-shirts. This is where the average Joe/Jane on the street are getting confused here. They think Americans should be asking and talking about is who wants my money, where is my money, why am I getting taxed more, why is all my salary going to medical care, what corporations are calling the shots and what YOUR Government are doing to appease these huge companies over YOU who voted these puppet Presidents in with money.
Bush was up against Kerry, Obama was up against McCain, so I ask was there a vote to begin with?
Just speaking out loud here but as a famous man once said, “America is now a police state, they are coming for you, your money, your civil liberties your pension and more” Expect it and don’t deny it. I can handle ignorance but these people who deny ignorance are worse. I can blog all day with a million other writers and bloggers about where the USA is right now and be ignored because some want to know, sadly many don’t want to know. Some think the American dream is still alive and well. Did you know America is now the 27th Smartest country on Earth?
I am not dishing dirt on America or her people here, I am showing you facts that many of you refuse to read or even try to know. Stubborn people WILL come into this blog and talk Democrats and Republicans and blame someone else. Facts of the matter are we can’t go pointing the finger. Divide and conquer was first used, historically by the Roman empire and it worked, this same tactic is in play today in the USA
Please, at least TRY and see it people. I live 5,400 miles away on a small island and your affairs will not affect me at all. Ask why I blog this, ask why I care. Is it because I see it and you don’t? Or am I wrong and making this up?
Fascism is at play in the USA
Written by a VERY close friend who has this subject close to their heart. I am HAPPILY blogging it for them as things are so bad in the USA the person can’t. This is a Police State in action here. When a Government stops the Word of God that is the 1st sign. Time to awaken people, this is happening now. Don’t ask “what can I do” just do!
After meeting with the Parish Barrister on Saturday, we learned of something very disturbing that will be coming down the pike from all places but the IRS.
They are preparing a directive for all churches who maintain 501C3 Status (Tax-Exempt), this directive is going to be on very shaky ground because it in my humble opinion violates our 1st Amendment rights…this directive will spell out in black and white what a minister/rabbi/priest etc can preach from the pulpit, if they want to maintain the church’s tax exempt status that is.
I feel like a modern day Martin Luther (nailing his thesis on the cathedral doors)…because on Sunday I preached about this exact thing warning my parish of the newest government control, I called them to arms and said Suffer the Word of God and they will see Revolution. One member walked out…this person is very influential in the Democratic party (which I’m not a member of …I’m an unaffiliated voter)…I have a funny feeling I’ll be being contacted by some powers that be.
This cannot happen, not today. Did we not learn from Hitler, Stalin or Mao? In the words of a friend…”The restraining what you say/preach is going to be told by the state/government? When the word of GOD is censored…You know it’s a police state…it is the first sign.”
People of the U.S.A. please wake up do something to protect our religious freedoms! So goes our freedom to worship God freely and without restraint from the government so goes all of our freedom!
One moment Monday morning, a Ukrainian flag still was flying over a military base in Ukraine’s Crimea region — the base’s commander reportedly kidnapped by pro-Russian troops the day before. Later Monday, masked troops were at the base, and the Ukrainian flag was gone. The bloodless incursion by apparently pro-Russian forces onto the Ukrainian base in the city of Bakhchisaray — amid disputed accounts over whether the base commander had switched sides — was one of the latest encounters between pro-Moscow troops who are consolidating their hold on the Black Sea peninsula and Ukrainian forces who still are there. The incident at the base came a day after German Chancellor Angela Merkel bluntly told Russian President Vladimir Putin by phone the Moscow-backed referendum on whether Crimea should join Russia is illegal and would violate Ukraine’s constitution if it goes ahead on March 16. Putin has defended breakaway moves by pro-Russian leaders in Crimea, where Russian forces have been tightening their grip on a region that has been the epicenter of a battle for influence among Moscow, Kiev and the West since Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s ouster last month. Pro-Russian forces last week pushed into the autonomous region in a bloodless siege, prompting criticism from Western nations and Ukraine’s interim government. Moscow has denounced the events that led to Yanukovych’s ouster as an illegitimate coup and has refused to recognize the new Ukrainian authorities, putting the two countries on a collision course over control of Crimea, which has longstanding ties to Russia and has thousands of Russian troops stationed there. Putin has said Russia has the right to protect Russians living in the former Soviet republic. As tensions mount, Ukraine’s armed forces carried out training exercises to test their readiness, the country’s Defense Ministry said. Citing televised comments made by Defense Minister Ihor Tenyukh on Sunday, it said the army was not calling for full mobilization, as diplomacy was still the preferred method to resolve the crisis. The Prime Minister of the autonomous region, Sergey Aksenev, was recently appointed commander-in-chief by the region’s parliament, giving him the power to form an army, government spokeswoman Ekaterina Polonchuk told Media. Aksenev told the Interfax news agency that the decision to form a military stems from “the presence of illegal armed groups in the territory of Crimea,” comments confirmed to Media by Polonchuk. So far, it appears a small number of men have joined the new army.

Monday’s appearance of masked troops at the Bakhchisaray base came a day after a pro-Russian group appeared to have kidnapped base commander Vladimir Sadovnik at a checkpoint, according to the Ukrainian military. When a Media crew visited the base Monday morning, the Ukrainian military was in charge, but Sadovnik still was missing. The deputy commander said that if “they to try blackmail us into giving up the base, it won’t happen.” Three hours later, the crew returned to the base, and the Ukrainian flag was no longer flying there. Masked gunmen were on the property, looking at the crew from the other side of a fence. The deputy commander told Media said 15 gunmen came to the base with Sadovnik, and that the gunmen were planning to take vehicles from the base. CNN was not allowed inside. What Sadovnik did upon his return is disputed. Ukrainian Defense Ministry spokesman Vladislav Seleznyov said Sadovnik had switched allegiance and persuaded some of the Ukrainian troops there to join him. Sadovnik and the men who joined him loaded trucks with fuel, radios and other goods to take away from the base, according to Seleznyov. But Sadovnik, talking later to Media by phone, denied Seleznyov’s account. He said his kidnappers allowed him to return to the base, and that he still was loyal to Ukraine. He said pro-Russian forces did ask Ukrainian troops at the base to change sides Monday, but that he did no such thing. He said he still was at the base; Media couldn’t immediately verify his location. The control of base wasn’t immediately clear Monday. Seleznyov said both Ukrainian and Russian flags were flying at the base late Monday afternoon. Putin earlier this month secured permission from his parliament to use military force to protect Russian citizens in Ukraine. The move came days after Yanukovych’s flight from the country. Yanukovych was ousted after three months of protests against his decision to spurn a free trade deal with the European Union and turn toward closer ties with Moscow.
Are the Russians listening?
At the United Nations, French Ambassador Gerard Araud told reporters the situation in Crimea “is worsening by the day.” Russian troops are being reinforced and Moscow appears ready to annex the region, he said after a Security Council session Monday afternoon. ”(The session) was a call to the Russians: We want to negotiate. We want a political settlement. Please don’t worsen this crisis,” Araud said. But he added, “The Russians are not showing any signal that they are listening to us — not only to the Security Council, but to all the heads of state and government.” And British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant said no “free and fair” vote could be held “while Crimea is under the illegal control of Russian troops and armed militias who are denying access to international monitors.” ”In the light of these concerns, if the referendum goes ahead on the 16th of March, its results must be considered illegal and illegitimate by all nations,” Grant said.
Earlier, Ukraine’s Defense Ministry said a group of about 20 pro-Russian activists from the so-called Crimea self-defense squads had broken into the military hospital in the region’s main administrative city, Simferopol, and thrown out its chief. In a later statement, it said the hospital chief was back at work after negotiations but added the premises were being blockaded by the activists. However a Media team that traveled to the hospital found it very quiet, with no one around. A guard on duty said he had not heard or seen anything unusual and that there was no senior official to speak with as Monday was a public holiday. In the course of the rapidly changing events of the past week, a propaganda war over Ukraine has quickly developed as each side seeks to strengthen its stance. Scenes of balaclava-wearing men without insignia patrolling streets or other premises have now become a familiar sight in the region. Reports of confrontations weren’t limited to Crimea. In the eastern mainland Ukrainian city of Lugansk, just a few kilometers west of the Russian border, 50 to 60 pro-Russian activists burst into an IRTA TV station building on Monday, editor-in-chief Katerina Rakova said. The intruders initially threatened to burn the building if they weren’t allowed to broadcast. But they eventually left, warning that they would return if they are dissatisfied with the station’s news broadcasts about pro-Russian demonstrations in Lugansk, Rakova said. Russia, meanwhile, accused far-right groups Monday of “conniving” with the new authorities in Ukraine. In a statement, the Russian Foreign Ministry condemned “lawlessness” in eastern Ukraine and accused the West of being silent over violence and detentions taking place against Russian citizens, such as one incident last week when it said masked gunmen fired on and injured peaceful protesters. On Monday afternoon, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was “increasingly alarmed” by developments in Ukraine. ”Recent events in Crimea in particular have only served to deepen the crisis. As tensions and mistrust are growing, I urge all sides to refrain from hasty actions and provocative rhetoric,” he said.
A therapist, Dr. Kelly Flanigan, has seen the ups and downs of many relationships, and knows what people need to get along. So, he wrote a letter to his little girl and every woman. Here are the amazing things he said:
Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.”
It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.
And I got angry.
Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”
Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)
If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.
Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be keptinterested, because he knows you are interesting:
I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.
I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.
I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you.
I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart.
I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.
I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness.
I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred.
In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common:
Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you.
Your eternally interested guy,
Thai police say an Iranian man bought the airfares for two men who boarded a missing plane with stolen passports. Nearly three days after the Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 239 people vanished between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing, a search operation involving several countries has found no sign of the aircraft. Authorities are trying to find out more about the two mystery passengers who had one-way tickets to Europe and were travelling on Austrian and Italian passports stolen in Thailand in the past two years.
Malaysia’s civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman earlier said the pair were “not Asian-looking men” He added: “Do you know a footballer by the name of (Mario) Balotelli? (This is) what he looks like. I don’t want to dwell on this but the men are not Asian-looking.” Thai Police Lt Col Ratchthapong Tia-sood has revealed that a travel agency in the beach resort of Pattaya, Grand Horizon, sold the tickets for the two men to an Iranian man known only as Mr Ali.
“We have to look further into this Mr Ali’s identity because it’s almost a tradition to use an alias when doing business around here,” he said. Grand Horizon’s owner, Benjaporn Krutnait, told The Financial Times she believed Mr Ali was not linked to terrorism as he asked for cheapest tickets to Europe. She also said Mr Ali – who had been regularly buying tickets from her for around three years – had not specified the Kuala Lumpur to Beijing flight.
UK Media Foreign Affairs Editor Sam Kiley said: “This is not an indication at all of any kind of Iranian government involvement. ”There is a massive industry in Malaysia and Thailand of people traffickers smuggling people from place to place on stolen passports. It has to be seen in that context at this stage.” It is not known whether the two men had anything to do with the plane’s disappearance, but security services are investigating whether the Boeing 777-200 was hijacked or destroyed in a terror attack. Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said biometric information and CCTV footage of the men has been shared with Chinese and US intelligence agencies, which were helping with the investigation.
Officials are discussing whether images of the men should be made public as part of an appeal for information, while Interpol said additional “suspect” documents are under review. Authorities admit they are “puzzled” by the “unprecedented” disappearance of the plane. The search effort, involving at least 34 aircraft and 40 ships from 10 countries, has widened to a 100-nautical mile (115-mile, 185-km) radius. Earlier reports of debris spotted in the South China Sea, including an aircraft door, have not been confirmed, while a possible sighting of a section of the plane’s tail has been ruled out.
Rescuers are also responding to reports of debris floating in the sea south of Hong Kong. It has also been confirmed that samples of oil taken from a slick in the South China Sea came from a ship, not the missing aircraft. With no confirmation that the Boeing 777 has crashed, hundreds of distraught relatives are still waiting anxiously for any news. Nearly two-thirds of the passengers on the flight were Chinese and if the loss of the plane is confirmed, it would be the country’s second-worst air disaster.
