THE ZERO HOUR CONTRACTS

Issy Mason

Malachi 3:5 says God’s will quickly deal against those who defraud workers of their wages, who oppress employees so deprive people of renumeration due to them. Slick employers commit crime of failing to pay deserved due wages and benefits employees guaranteed by law. God records mistreatment by zero hour and deprived pensions require account from employers. Despite good academic degrees people in zero hour jobs using skills but paid no decent salaries.  The 2:1 degree to zero-hours contract is commonly now an issue with people compelled to take jobs unrelated to their expertise just to earn money to support themselves. It is interesting companies that can afford to pay well seem to prefer machines which do not have family to provide for above humans. Such graduates cannot find the most suitable jobs that helps to combine family needs with professional roles. It is such a problem most graduates live below poverty line with huge mounting debts. One case is Issy Mason’s degree counted for little in her job hunt as she needed to work part-time. As a report finds having a degree offers young women little help in the jobs market if they are also mothers needing flexible working hours, one young mum explains her frustration. Money is so tight you never really know how much you are going to get paid each month,” says Issy Mason a 26-year-old graduate, from Nottingham, who also happens to be a single mother. She has an upper-second class degree in languages and international business from Sheffield Hallam University, and speaks fluent Spanish and completed two internships in marketing, one of them overseas. She achieved all this alongside having become a mother at 19 but her skills and qualifications seem to count for little in her hunt for graduate job because she needs a flexible work pattern. She says the only jobs open to her flexible enough to fit around school pick-up for her six-year-old daughter offer zero-hours contracts.

‘Minimum wage’

Throughout her degree, Issy always worked part-time. She thought this, alongside unpaid internships, would make her more employable as graduate. But the reality has proved “dispiriting” and she feels shut out of the graduate jobs market. She applied for graduate schemes but not lots of flexibility,” she says. “You can’t negotiate start times and finish times for school pick-ups. “There is scope in senior roles for part-time and flexible working, but there’s less flexibility in entry-level jobs. “I feel a lot of opportunities out of my reach. It is incredibly frustrating and depressing. “At times, I really took it personally. It really hit my confidence.” But she still hopes “for a job that pays salary rather than minimum wage.”

‘Too little support’

The Institute of Student Employers, which represents leading companies that hire and train young staff, said it was not aware of any of its members running part-time graduate schemes. But Issy believes employers who write off or fail to support young mothers are missing out on talent. She fears being thought “unreliable” because of her caring responsibilities but says young women who complete their degrees as parents “have already shown tenacity and motivation and commitment for good careers.” “We’ve shown we want to make a contribution to society,” Issy says. “We just need a bit more support.” “It’s not just about the grad schemes though flexibility should be available across board. “There’s definitely scope for government to help businesses to understand how to be more flexible and welcome more well qualified mums into their employment.”

A master’s in hope

Issy’s zero-hours job as a receptionist in one of Nottingham’s sport centres offers more regular hours than her previous work. “Sometimes they call on the day if they need me,” she says. Life is difficult as money is precarious and fluctuating.” The Young Women’s Trust supported Issy with career coaching, counselling, and in January, alongside her part-time job, she will start a master’s degree in branding, advertising at Nottingham Trent University. She says there have been times when she has felt “quite negative” about herself and also her capabilities but now she is cautiously optimistic. “I realise that I do need to get a graduate position but I am a little bit more positive because by completing a master’s degree, I will show that I still have enough drive to develop my career.” Marketing meeting

What does government say?

A government spokeswoman said a record number of women were now in work and legislation gave all employees with 26 weeks’ continuous service and the right to request flexible working. “We are determined to support women into work so we have expanded access to high-quality affordable childcare and earlier this year fulfilled our promise to double the free childcare available to working parents to 30 hours a week, saving them up to £5,000 a year,” she said. “We also recently announced £5m to support people returning to paid work after time spent caring many such people will be parents with childcare responsibilities.”

The research

The most recent Higher Education Statistics Agency figures show 3,665 female graduates were on zero-hours contracts six months after leaving university in 2016. And analysis of long-term data from the University of Essex’s Understanding Society Study, for the Young Women’s Trust, indicated young women with degrees likely to be jobless as men with no qualifications, because they were parents. “Young women are working hard because they want to be financially independent. But instead, many are getting stuck on low pay, in insecure work and, in many cases, shut out of the jobs market altogether,” said YWT chief executive Carole Easton. Dr Easton called for more support and mentoring to ease their transition into work, a commitment to invest in jobs and skills for women and more access to affordable childcare. “There should be a ministerial champion to oversee progress,” she said “Giving young women the support they need to find secure, well paid work will help them to become financially independent to gain businesses and the economy too.” Above all, if all women decide not to have any children in the world, the whole world will be worse off and unreplenished. It is in the interest of nations to value role of motherhood to stop treating parents as lazy villains who refuse to work and want to be parasites. A mother’s work is never done and more than 24/7, day or night with no breaks in between. It is a least rewarding duty of care for life still involved in adult children’s lives. The sooner society values motherhood to ensure mothers as primary carers take care of children the better for society. Many children in latch key, after school club barely know their parents and vice versa. Yet society blames their parents if the children are not successful in life. The foundation of education from early years must be examined to value input of mother and fathers. Head knowledge is great but life consists of wisdom and practical living skills from experience in life not just merely the taught academic information in books. Brain use is good but the most genius brains some times cannot function without support of the family to navigate life. Academic life is wonderful but education alone is not good enough to be productive in family real life needs juggling with business. So the family must be valued more.

METEOR FIREBALLS IN SKY

Meteor fireballs seen in sky reported by various people in UK. Blazing fireballs seen over southern England by dozens of people who said the fireball lit up the English sky above Wiltshire according to news reports and you tube videos. Two falling meteors resulting in blazing fireballs have been seen widely in the skies over southern England. Dozens of people reported seeing the objects across England, Wales and northern France just after midnight on Saturday and following morning. Many people captured video or photos of the meteor showing large bright objects appearing to flare up and then recede in the night or early morning sky. The American Meteor Society website’s record of everyone who reported the fireball at midnight on SaturdayThe first sighting was after midnight on Saturday with the majority of people from UK Meteor Observation Network (UKMON) and American Meteor Society (AMS) viewing it in south/east England.The American Meteor Society's website record of everyone who reported the fireball at midnight on Saturday

It was categorised as a bolide, which is the technical definition of a meteor that results in a flash as bright as the moon. The second came seven hours later with reports from the people who contacted UKMON and AMS coming in from the south/west England and South Wales. A handful of those who reported seeing the fireball at midnight said it produced a sound, described as a “rumble as the multiple booms lasting 2-3 seconds but others heard no sound. Richard Fleet, a member of UKMON, told Sky News the first fireball was the second brightest fireball seen in the UK for three years. “It was probably a few kilograms of material,” Mr Fleet, from Wilcot, Wiltshire, said. “It would have been coming in at about 20 kilometres per second (km/s). The Space Station is moving at about 8km/s.An image of a fireball seen in the sky above Wilcot, Wiltshire. Picture: UKMON

It would have happened at about an altitude of about 30km. “It was bright but nothing like the one broke up over Chelyabinsk (in Russia). That one would have been about 15 metres across. This one about 15cm.” Someone calling themselves Sol C on the AMS website said: “It was so quick as inside house looking out the window. Initially thought it was a firework but there was no firework sound and my friend next to me saw it too.” Spence J, in Culmhead, Somerset, described it as a “very high elevation bright greenish light terminal flash that lit up night-time countryside and the few clouds in the area. Didn’t get a good look at it as was driving at the time and it seemed to come over from behind me.” After witnessing the 7.15am UK time fireball on Saturday, Christmas T told AMS website: “Wow never seen anything like it before. And almost all reported later the fireball was not accompanied by sound but over half said the object appeared to break up as it came towards Earth.The American Meteor Society website's record of everyone who reported seeing the fireball at 7.15am on SaturdayThe American Meteor Society website’s record of everyone who reported seeing the fireball at 7.15am on Saturday. Fred T said, was inside so field of view was somewhat restricted but significantly brighter/bigger than anything he’d seen before (eg “shooting star”), esp as in full daylight.” Mr Fleet said the appearance in the sky of fireballs and a subsequent fireball seen over France on Saturday night was coincidental and they were not related. He said the data gathered by UKMON would now be analysed in an attempt to work out whether any material from the meteor survived and hit the ground and, if so, where. There is going to be showers of meteors in the the end times according to the Bible. It is part of shedding objects in space that are floating about. These include debris around earth disturbed by other unsual patterns of objects interrupting ecliptic atmosphere hurled as missiles. During the end times God will hurl meteors as weapons to destroy enemy armies that fight against Israel in Armageddon. The earth will be transformed by Christ the KING of Kings Lord of Lords to Reign eternally forever. 

GOODFOOD TO BIN RESCUED

People eating snacks and dips

the food tucked into in Kilner jars filled with delicious goods as piccalilli, vegan chocolate mousse with a creamy tofu topping all was made from ingredients that would have otherwise been thrown away. Adam Handling launched Bean & Wheat in June to use surplus food from a kitchen of his nearby restaurant, The Frog E1. The Masterchef finalist wanted to help reduce around 199,000 tonnes of food waste produce each year by British restaurants, which he feels harms the environment but also “wastes money.”Adam Handling

Bean & Wheat’s dishes include salads made from unusual parts of vegetables, such as cauliflower stalks, pates made with off-cuts, and oils made with the tops of the herbs which are usually binned. Adam Handling reuses surplus food from the kitchen at his restaurant, the Frog E1. Mr Handling also makes his own compost from vegetable peelings, cold-pressed juices, misshapen fruit, and soap with coffee grounds. One of his priorities is to minimise food waste at restaurants to the point that we have hardly any,” he says. Bean & Wheat is one of a rising number of companies looking to tackle the issue of food waste, which sees a third of food produced for human consumption is lost or is wasted, according to UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation. That’s equivalent to 1.3 billion tonnes globally every year. The overproduction of food, rules restricting sale of discoloured or “wonky” produce, and aversion to leftovers, despite being perfectly fine to eat are all to blame. So campaigners say not only is such waste morally wrong, it also wastes water and worsens global warming as swelling landfills emit more greenhouse gasses.Kilner jars at Bean and Wheat

Jenny Dawson Costa quit her job in the hedge fund industry in 2011 to launch Rubies in the Rubble, hoping to offer a practical solution to the problem. The British firm uses unwanted “ugly” fruit and veg from UK farms to make their condiments, such as pink onion, chilli relish, banana ketchup and piccalilli. Its products are available in 500 stockists, including Waitrose, Selfridges and independent stores. Ms Dawson says that since she started, the public has become more aware about the issue of food waste and more open to eating surplus food. “Many consumers used to be put off by it and were worried about the quality but I think that’s changing. Brands like ours are also showing it can be used in products that taste great,” she adds, noting that her firm has won several awards. Indeed, even major retailers are embracing the trend, with Tesco and Asda among those now stocking misshapen fruit and veg. More stories from BBC’s Business Brain series looking at interesting business topics from around the world.The firm's condiments are sold in Waitrose and Selfridges

Rubies in the Rubble’s products are sold in Waitrose and Selfridges. Others are taking a different approach to tackling problem, such as Danish tech company Too Good To Go. It is one of a number of new apps that allow customers to buy unsold food from the local restaurants, cafes and bakeries for knockdown prices. The firm works with more than 6,000 food businesses including Yo! Sushi and Exmouth Coffee Company, and operates in six countries including UK, Sweden and Germany. Co-founder Chris Wilson says it saved two million meals from the bin since its launch in June 2016, however the firm still has to fight against negative perceptions around surplus food. “Whilst there’s been a shift in the mentality of people, most people are sceptical vast majority of the UK still looks upon food waste as being scraps from people’s plates. With us it’s not that at all.”Jamie Crummie and Chris Wilson co-founded Too good to go. Trish Caddy, food industry analyst at Mintel believes though surplus food continues to be stigmatised. “Consumers demand that companies address food waste but currently do not translate it to own behaviour remains to be seen if trend goes mainstream soon.Too good to goShe points to a Mintel survey, which found that 77% of those who eat out or buy takeaways agree restaurants should be more committed to reducing food waste, but only 17% are interested in eating dishes made from food was due to be thrown away. Of course, the hospitality industry will not be able tackle problem of food waste alone. So manufacturers, retailers, importantly households as the biggest producers of food waste must all play their part, says UK charity Waste & Resources Action Programme. Mr Handling says every little helps and there are plenty of ways food businesses can contribute. They can incorporate more ‘nose-to-tail’ cooking, send anything that can’t be cooked to be composted, or find another way to use off-cuts and by-products, or donate leftovers to charities as some restaurants and supermarkets do. “It’s about taking a second to think ‘have I absolutely exhausted all possibilities with this ingredient?’ before throwing it away.” Famine and child starvation can be stopped by food alert centres and a delivery system that makes use of good food away. Supermarkets can be also encouraged to reset sell by and use by dates as perfectly good food is thrown away because computers programmed reject sales if good foods. Yet constantly restock with similar good foods only to be thrown away but cost of production is affecting the environment. A win win situation is to help people understand how long it takes to grow food so not to easily throw away good food without second thought. Those who grew up in ration years know value of such quality good foods unavailable in the past now in superabundance taken for granted.

THE ONE-WORLD CURRENCY

IMG_20171124_191011Ongoing effort towards one government and one currency is a debated issue of interest to many concerned people in the world today.  So some want to know what Bible prophesy is on one-world government and one-world currency in the end times. Although Bible does not use phrase “one-world government” or “one-world currency” in referring to end times it provides ample evidence to enable drawing the conclusion both will exist under the rule of the anti-Christ in the last days. In the apocalyptic vision in Book of Revelation Apostle John sees the “beast,” called the antichrist, rising out of the sea having with 7 heads and ten horns in Revelation 13:1. Combining this vision with Daniel’s one in Daniel 7:16-24 we can conclude some sort of world system will be inaugurated by the beast, the most powerful “horn,” who will defeat the other nine and will begin to wage war against believers.IMG_20171124_191448The ten-nation confederacy is seen in Daniel’s image of the statue in Daniel 2:41-42, where he pictures the final world government consisting of ten entities represented by ten toes of the statue. When the ten come to power, Scripture is clear the beast will destroy them by reducing their power to nothing more than figureheads. In the end, they do his bidding. John describes the ruler of this vast empire as having power and great authority, given to him by satan himself in Revelation 13:2. And followed by receiving worship from “all the world in verse 13:3-4 having great authority over “every tribe and people, language and nation” in 13:7. From this description, that person is the leader of a one-world government recognized as sovereign over all other governments. It is hard to imagine diverse systems of government in power today willingly subjugating themselves to a single ruler so many theories exist on the subject. A logical conclusion is that the disasters and plagues described in Revelation in the seal and the trumpet judgments in chapters 6-11 will be so devastating creating a monumental global crisis people embrace anything or anyone who promises relief. maxresdefault-10-1024x765-394x330

After Rapture of the Church into heaven those left behind will be faced with an excruciating choice to accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by antiChrist and followers. As entrenched in power, the beast antiChrist and devil power satan moves to establish absolute control over all peoples of the earth. So satan accomplishes evil plan of worship sought since thrown out of heaven I’m Isaiah 14:12-14. To accomplish this is by controlling all commerce where using a one-world currency. Revelation 13:16-17 describes the satanic mark required in order to buy and sell. So this means anyone who refuses the mark will be unable to buy food, clothing or other necessities of life. The vast majority of people in the world will succumb to the mark simply to survive. Again, verse 16 makes it clear this will be a universal system of control where everyone, rich and poor, great and small, will bear the mark on their hand or forehead. There is a great deal of vested interest in how exactly this mark is affixed to control to track people in future cashless society.19.gif

Currently some people have chips in their body and vets used it to identify pet owner’s address. Technologies available right are accomplishing it very easily using a level of chips for shopping, buying and selling. Those left behind after Rapture of the Church will be faced with such an excruciating choice to accept the mark of the beast in order to survive or face starvation and horrific persecution by the antiChrist and his followers. Those who come to Christ during this time or those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life in Revelation 13:8, choose to endure by rejecting mark of the beast even to martyrdom.

THE FOOD CHOICE FORCES

Modern food choices are influenced by forces out of control. An average person makes over 200 food-related decisions each day – but environmental forces can cause us to overeat by taking advantage of biological, psychological, and social and economic vulnerabilities. And so following a healthy diet can be hard. From deciding when and what to eat to how much food you actually put on your plate, the average person makes decisions each day, most of which are automatic. These automatic choices dubbed mindless eating by some experts happen when we eat and drink without consciously considering what kind of or how much food to consume. We’ll keep eating from a bowl of chips past the point of fullness simply because they’re in front of us. Even the most disciplined consumers are not fully in control of what they eat. Studies have shown that decisions such as when, what and how much to eat are often shaped by subtle forces outside of our awareness or direct control. These environmental forces can cause us to overeat taking advantage of biological, psychological, and social and economic vulnerabilities. This helps explain why 2 billion people worldwide overweight or obese, and why no country has yet been able to reverse their obesity epidemic. There’s hope. Research shed light on the major forces that encourage overeating, including biological, psychological, social, and economic. Now that we know more about them, we are in a better position to intervene.

BIOLOGY INFLUENCES APPETITES

Why do humans tend to crave items like chocolate over salad? Taste preferences such as a “sweet tooth” are innate to human biology, and they can change over the course of our lives. Children, for example, have a stronger preference for sweet foods than adults do. Modern food environment introduced an influx of processed foods filled with sugar, fat, salt, flavor enhancers, food additives, caffeine and so on. These ingredients are manipulated to try to maximize our biological enjoyment and satisfy those innate taste preferences. For instance, research finding says a certain highly palatable food like chocolate milkshake trigger brain responses like people’s reactions to addictive substances, giving new meaning to idea of ‘sugar high’. But processed foods are frequently stripped of components such as water, fiber and protein that cause us to feel full, making it difficult for the body to regulate food intake and maintain weight.

THE BRAIN LOVES FOOD

In addition to biological enjoyment of highly processed foods, there’s a lot to love about them psychologically. From McDonald’s Happy Meals toys to Coca-Cola’s global “Open Happiness” special marketing campaign, examples abound of the link between food and pleasure. Companies spend billions of the dollars used in marketing foods to create image of strong, positive association with their products. One study found that children actually think same food tastes better adorned with a cartoon character like Dora the Explorer or Shrek. There are lots of small ways our environment can promote overeating. People eat more when served larger portions, regardless of how hungry they are. Unhealthy foods are very noticeable and desired because they are everywhere in schools, restaurants, convenience stores, or the supermarkets and vending machines. They’ve even infiltrated stores selling office supplies and home goods.

The places where we make many of our food decisions can be overwhelming for busy consumers with 40,000 different products in a typical supermarket), and most psychological cues in environment signal us to eat more not less. Examples are large portion sizes, food prices, the placement of food items in stores and promotional strategies to market foods affect dietary decisions on daily basis. Consider portion size alone: Drinking Coca-Cola in 1950s meant consuming a 6.5-ounce glass; today 7-Eleven Double Gulp is roughly 10 times that size and contains nearly 800 calories. But for food out of sight means out of mind. Google provides free snack foods for employees, and found that employees were eating too many M&Ms. So they placed the M&Ms in opaque containers and made healthier snacks more visible. Simply placing M&Ms out of sight from 2,000 employees in the New York office meant they consumed 3.1 million fewer calories in just seven weeks.

ENVIRONMENT INFLUENCE FOOD

Unhealthy foods are often inexpensive, making them especially appealing to those on a tight budget. But fast food and ready-to-eat convenience store items are also widely available and quicker and easier to prepare than home-cooked meals, which makes busy consumers vulnerable to overeating them. Food companies also engage in targeted efforts to market to certain groups. For example, recent reports have shown that soda companies are increasing their spending in the US on targeting black and Hispanic youth, a concerning strategy as these groups have greater rates of obesity. The good news is public discourse about obesity and policy-making is starting to reflect science. The public and policymakers are realizing that health issues like obesity and its related chronic diseases are not just about people’s individual food decisions. People are prone to over-consume unhealthy foods because our current food environments exploit biological, psychological, and social and economic vulnerabilities, undermining people’s ability, personal responsibility for their food choices. Because weight loss programs lead to limited weight loss difficult to maintain, bolder efforts are needed to prevent overweight and obesity in the first place. Fortunately, policy-level interventions introduced. In US, by Food and Drug Administration will require large chain restaurants to list calorie content on food menus in 2016 and it has proposed adding a Daily Value for Added Sugars on food labels to limit consumption.

US Food and Drug Administration check large chain restaurant’s calorie list of food menus since 2016. Although the research or influence of calorie label and food choice mixed current evidence suggests that calorie labeling promotes lower calorie food choices for some consumers, some of the time, at some restaurants. The FDA has also taken action to remove harmful trans fats which increase risk of heart disease from processed foods. The US, United Kingdom, Peru, Uruguay and Costa Rica enacted policies to remove “junk food” from public schools out of sight out of mind. UK imposed sugar tax to help reduce sugar content levels in food and drinks. And Mexico recently enacted a one peso (8 cents) per liter tax on sugar-sweetened beverages to curb obesity epidemic. Berkeley, California passed a US$0.01 per ounce excise tax on sugar-sweetened beverages in 2014 and expects to generate $1.2 million from this year.Chile and Peru banned toys in Happy Meals. McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King all dropped soft drinks from their children’s menus. These are important steps in tackling obesity epidemic, and more research is needed for us to understand which interventions will work best. Innovative policies are needed to change what and how much we eat, alongside the efforts by food industry to make healthier life choices easier yet food more desirable.

RIGHT DEGREE RIGHT JOBS

IMG_20171122_142856.jpgWill doing a degree land you the right career? As16 November 2017 with over 180 comments.  Poppy Hunt will definitely like to earn a bit more money. Although she graduated in Fine Art from the University of the West of England six months ago, she’s currently working as a customer services assistant for Sainsbury’s in Bristol. She feels overqualified at the moment working in a supermarket, because for this job I’m doing now, I don’t necessarily need a degree,” she says. She’s got plenty of company. The Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) has been tracking graduate outcomes and reckons that for those who left in the 2015 university year, 48% ended up in non-graduate jobs six months on. Lizzie Crowley, the author of the report, says: “Unless we actually see degrees creating value for the economy, it is a big problem.” She says 77% of students will not pay loans back in full. Her organisation wants UK universities to be prevented from charging the maximum level of tuition fees unless they deliver better graduate outcomes. The CIPD argues that with the spiralling costs of university, students need to ask themselves whether a degree path is the best route into a career. It says there is a need for much better career advice and guidance, alongside high-quality alternative vocational routes into employment other than university education. Poppy Hunt wants to apply for museum and art gallery jobs, but working 39 hours a week in a supermarket, she is finding it tough to build up the required experience to secure a break into arts. Poppy HuntThose interviewed include POPPY HUNT on challenges since graduation. Some people think it might be better to be in one of the careers to have needed work experience than having a degree,” she says. Poppy was not sure what she wanted to do when she left university in the summer, but it didn’t take long for graduate Jessica Davies to land on her feet and forge a career in the world of recruitment. She just wishes she hadn’t racked up £48,000 of student debt in the process. I left university as anyone does and suddenly thought: what now? I had this great degree and wanted to go out there and get a job that suited me.” But she ended up in a job which doesn’t require a degree. Jessica left the London School of Economics in 2016 with a 2:1 in Economic History. She doesn’t regret it. But for her career, it wasn’t really necessary: “I’ve found something that I’m good at, that I can do well, but also that I enjoy. I could have gone into recruitment four years ago before my degree and probably done just as well. It’s not something worth £48,000 now,” says Jessica Davies who ended up in a job that didn’t need a degree.Jessica Davies

Fee incentive

Lizzie Crowley wants the government to step in. “As we look ahead to the budget, the government should consider linking tuition fees to graduate destination data in order to prevent higher education institutions charging top-rate fees while delivering bottom-rate outcomes,” she says. “This report shows pre-occupation of successive governments boosting graduate numbers leading to high levels of over-qualification, potentially skills mismatches, which the OECD suggests undermines productivity growth.” The CIPD figures are based on most recent data from Higher Education Statistics Authority. The CIPD found almost third of graduates (29%) on salary of less than £20,000 six months after graduating, well below UK average of £28,300. But the head of Universities UK, Alistair Jarvis, says assessing the employment outcomes for graduates only six months after they leave is too crude a measure. “Six months after graduation, a lot of graduates are deciding what they want to do in the future still,” he says. “Over last year, there were 4% more graduate vacancies than the year before and this is the fifth year in a row that employers are telling us we need more graduates not fewer.” Mr Jarvis said: “University is not best choice for all, apprenticeships are the right choice for some people. But employers are demanding more graduates. “The graduate earnings premium is an average £9,500 per year and graduates are half as likely to be unemployed as non-graduates. There are many good graduate outcomes coming from university. Do not fall apart managing your mind at work if under stress from work. “For the whole eight-hour shift you may pretend you’re OK.” Talking to family or friends is one thing, but speaking about your mental health at work can be daunting. Here on Like Minds we’ve been finding out who you should tell to make it a bit easier to start  conversation. Graduate with sign on hatBear in mind that the global trends of unemployment due to machines, robots self-drive cars or vehicles taking over jobs of millions of people. So important to remember you must reassess your priority to make changes to adapt to modern trends. With huge debts and no jobs for life young people are drifting into depression through no fault of their own. Be aware the system benefits the privileged few 1% wealthy who gain more from educated trained people working on zero hours. These matters have come to attention of ALMIGHTY LORD GOD, transforming earth to restore justice and fairness. Be in the know not to worry because your life is different from expected standard. God requires all to work to eat but if the jobs are destroyed mass unemployment is used to ensure reduction in wealth of people. This is part of bigger agenda so practical relevance of majority of jobs is ignored. The plan is train highly skilled but use their skills and them in debt for life. Understand this is why many do so many jobs yet cannot own own home, pay bills but go to food banks despite being graduates in menial job’s. God put zillions of resources on earth for all but is unfairly distributed. Sooner or later God patent owner of all resources will take it back and King Jesus will rule and reign forever in peace with no poverty. It is happening faster than expected so have hope and be encouraged in Christ.

11 You will say, “I will invade a land of unwalled villages; attack a peaceful and unsuspecting people all of them living without walls and without gates and bars. 12 I will plunder and loot and turn my hand against the resettled ruins and the people gathered from the nations, rich in livestock and goods, living at the center of the land. 13 Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and all her villages will say to you, “Have you come to plunder? Have you gathered your hordes to loot, to carry off silver and gold, to take away livestock and goods and to seize much plunder. 14 “Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say to Gog: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: In that day, when my people Israel are living in safety, will you not take notice of it? 15 You will come from your place in far north, you and many nations with you, all of them riding on horses, a great horde, a mighty army. 16 You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.ee2f1777fb9d37f66bfe8bf72ce368cd--christian-symbols-christian-quotes

17 “‘This is what the Sovereign LORD  God says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants, prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. 18 This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD God. 19 In zeal and fiery wrath declares at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel.20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 God summons a sword against Gog on all mountains declares the Sovereign LORD. And every man’s sword will be against his brother. And 22 God executes HIS judgment with the plague, bloodshed, pours down torrents of rain, hailstones, burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 God will show HIS greatness, Holiness and make HIMSELF known in the sight of many nations and they will know that I AM the LORD God Yahweh.’ This battle involves all nations and accomplices gathered against Israel chosen to replace them through Jesus. It is final showdown of God to take over world to make it perfectly fair for all.

Daniel’s Prayer for Nations of Israel

Daniel his face to the LORD God, seeking HIM by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting, sackcloth and ashes. prayed to the LORD God and made confession by saying, “O LORD, the great, awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep HIS commandments, we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules. We have not listened to your servants, prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. To you O LORD, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame this day, to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to all Israel, who are near and those who are far away in all lands you have driven them, because of the treachery that they have committed against you. To us O LORD belongs open shame, to our kings, to our princes and our fathers, because we sinned against you. To you LORD our God belong Mercy and Forgiveness, for we have rebelled against you 10 and not obeyed the voice of the LORD God by walking in his laws, set before us by his servants the prophets. 11 All Israel transgressed your law and turned aside, refusing to obey your voice. And curse and oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out upon us because we sinned against God. 12 HE confirmed HIS WORDS, HE spoke against all and against our rulers who ruled us, bringing a great calamity. For under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what has been done against Jerusalem. 13 As it is written in Law of Moses, this calamity is coming yet not all entreated the favour of the LORD God turning from iniquities and gaining insight by God’s TRUTH.  So 14 the LORD has kept ready the calamity brought nations for the LORD our God is righteous in all the works HE has done, and we have not obeyed HIS voice. And 15 now, O LORD our God, who brought your people out of land of Egypt with a Mighty hand and made a NAME for yourself, as at this day, we have sinned, we have done wickedly. 16 “O LORD God according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins and iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a by word among all who are around us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O LORD make your FACE to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open YOUR EYES and SEE the desolations, and the city called by your name. We do not present pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O LORD, hear; O LORD, FORGIVE. O LORD, pay attention and act. Delay not for your own sake O my God because of your city and your people called by YOUR NAME.

Gabriel Brings an Answer

20 As Daniel was speaking and praying, confessing his sin and sin of the people Israel, and presenting pleas before the LORD God for the HOLY Mount of God, 21 while speaking in prayer, Gabriel, seen in the vision, came swiftly at the time of evening sacrifice.22 He helped to understand by saying, “O Daniel, I have now come out to give you insight and understanding. 23 At the beginning of your pleas for mercy a word went out, and I have come to tell it to you, for you are greatly loved. So consider this word and understand the vision.

The Seventy Weeks

24 “Seventy weeks decreed for people and HOLY City, to finish transgression, to put end to sin and atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, so seal vision as prophet and anoint most HOLY Place. 25 Know and understand that from going out of these words to restore and build Jerusalem to coming of a prince, there shall be seven weeks.   For sixty-two weeks will be built again  with squares and moat but in troubled times. 26 After sixty-two weeks anointed one shall be cut off so have nothing. So people of prince to come shall destroy Holy City and Sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war as desolations as decreed. 27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. Abominations shall come by one who makes desolate till decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” The desolator actively uses people, systems to defy GOD ALMIGHTY’S Words, laws imposing enforce compliance. Anointed ONE Jesus takes over His own property back to Rule and Reign Forever. This prayer affects all nations under heaven so is being fulfilled globally today. This includes all people all over the world so not just exclusively Israel so affects you.
