Who would YOU call on to make a heroic effort during a pandemic?

The prayer of faith shall save the sick. A mere request that God will heal the sick has no power to gain more of the divine presence than is always at hand. The beneficial effect of such prayer for the sick is on the human mind, making it act more powerfully on the body through a blind faith in God. This, however, is one belief casting out another, a belief in the…

Managing Panic in a Pandemic.

We've had different sets of experts get together and discuss the empirical evidence to support the notion that good things will happen if you do them. That's what I'm going to call psychological first aid, and it has certain underpinnings—safety, calming, connection, efficacy and hope.

• Safety is about removing people from a threat.

• Calming happens when you want to lower the state of arousal so people can function, concentrate and take concrete steps towards what they need to… Continue

Dowry in Rwanda is paid by a family of the man to his prospective bride's family. Many women see it as an indication of their value to society and have no interest in changing this element of their culture.

Traditionally the dowry is paid in cows, though nowadays for people living in the city cash is more useful. When a cow is given, the first calf born would traditionally be given back to the young married couple. This culture of using the cows will remain only in the…

Four Women stopped the prostitution and hope to gain more in a new life.

Four Women stopped the prostitution and have the hope to gain more in a new life.

After the life of prostitution, the four women have promised to stop sex business and begin a new life. They have taken a good decision and we have helped them to get a loan of one million Rwandan francs (about 1800 dollars) for the small business. Before posting this post, I have had a conversation with them just to know their vision, the hope of future and their feelings for this time. They trust their… Continue

Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, drying, acidifying,

flooding, and burning in ways that no human has ever seen. We've

created, in very short order, a new planet, still recognizable but

fundamentally different. We may as well call it Eaarth.

That new planet is filled with new binds and traps. A changing world costs large sums to defend—think of the money that went to repair New Orleans, or the trillions it will take to transform our energy systems.

But the…

Gender Equality through Gender Inequality

Issues concerning the equality or inequality of gender have long been considered as fragile topics. When most people are asked about which is which about sexual equity, many usually make their own presumptions or definitions. Gender inequality is actually an almost untouchable subject matter especially when it concerns cultural inclinations. This means that one gender may appear the stronger sex in a certain culture and may be weaker in another.

In the world of business gender equality and… Continue

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years.

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
