PLANET X WAVES ON EARTH

b64beea69243108f538bb2b987ac9755.gifHigh waves on the earth are happening all over the world in extreme situations beyond expectations. Strong radiation of changes seawaves due to high waves built-up of sea’s energy. The rate of these rampart waves are so many people feel some cities will be drowned from them. Global warming affects the tidal waves still debated so the frontiers in Marine Science launched new section on changing Physical Oceanography to show undercurrent changing patterns in modern times. Combined with plenty of available information data from the climatology records rapid changes must be noted by those living in coastal areas. Planetary magnetic tidal impacts core of earth causing volcanoes, tsunamis and high waves. These waves of destruction are being forecast to rip through some mainlands globally, killing millions of people yet governments doing nothing about it as a documentary has claimed. Manmade efforts trying to curb, prevent or stop global warming seems to do the opposite. Flash floods in some places is now more common than ever before with damaging effects of earthquakes. Furthermore, fracking, aluminium and other toxic chemicals being pumped into atmosphere damage ozone layer of earth. The green house effect is causing acid rain back in soil seeping in oceans repeating the cycle.wave-crash-cinemagraph.gif

The UN is warning that we are now on course for 3C of global warming. This will ultimately redraw the map of the world. UN climate negotiators met for summit talks this month on new figure on data available. Until now, global efforts such as the Paris climate agreement have tried to limit global warming to 2C above pre-industrial levels. However, with latest projections pointing to an increase of 3.2C by 2100, these goals seem to be slipping out of reach. The situation is most people love the sea and are drawn to live as close by as possible. Surfers do wonders by courageous daring displays which attract more people in search of adventure. It is good to enjoy life, have fun but equally important to educate people about imminent risks involved. These rapid changes require decisions to do enough to save precious hundreds of millions of people from a miserable future,” said Erik Solheim, the UN environment chief, ahead of upcoming Bonn conference. The biggest resulting threats to cities around the world is sea-level rise, caused by expansion of water at higher temperatures and melting ice sheets on the north and the south poles. Scientists at the non-profit organisation Climate Central estimate 275 million people worldwide live in areas that will be flooded at 3C of global warming.a-musician-just-played-the-violin-while-surfing-mile-high-waves-in-portugal

Asian cities worst affected

The regional impact of these changes is highly uneven, with 4 out of 5 people affected living in Asia. Although the sea levels will not rise instantaneously, the calculated increases will be “locked in” at a temperature rise of 3C, meaning it will be irreversible though warming eventually slows down. In Osaka, Japan 5.2 million people affected At the end of a month battered by unseasonably late typhoons and relentless rain, Japan is already confronting the threat posed by climate change-induced flooding. Data recorded by meteorological department shows swaths of Osaka the commercial heart of a region whose GDP is almost as big as that of the Netherlands would disappear beneath water in a 3C world, threatening local economy and almost 1/3 wider region’s 19 million residents. Millions of people live in the urban area surrounding Osaka. A sea-level rise will reshape densely and sparsely populated areas. As a result of global sea-level rise, storm surges, other factors, economists project that coastal flooding could put almost $1tn of Osaka’s assets at risk by the 2070s, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.article-0-07838117000005DC-359_964x592

The costs of protecting cities from rising sea levels and storms are likely to rise so is costs of repairing storm damage,” it said. “Decisions made today can have a profound impact on security, culture and lives of people of this ancient city. Like much of Japan, Osaka has network of seawalls and other coastal defences in place to combat tsunami although their effectiveness disputed in the aftermath of the 2011 triple disasters. Osaka city authorities are investing in other infrastructure to mitigate effects of flooding, but public education is vital, according to Toshikazu Nakaaki, Osaka municipal government environmental bureau. Past response was focused on reducing causes of global warming, but given that climate change is inevitable, according to Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), discussions turned to how to respond to the natural disasters that will follow,” Nakaaki said. Like other major coastal city areas it is anticipated Osaka will be affected by natural disasters caused by the climate change. So needs to establish exactly what might happen in advance to help prepare adequate tools for survival and how much financial damage it causes.Tsunami_(19)

The expected sea levels rising is a point worth noting now rather than in the future as seas are already rising. Keiko Kanai is aware that her home city is susceptible to natural disasters. She heard historically, tsunamis caused by earthquakes put many parts of Osaka underwater and knows some parts of the world are at risk too from rising sea levels,” said Kanai, who teaches at local university. But didn’t put two and two together until now did not give much thought to the idea Osaka too could be engulfed by rising sea levels. Kaori Akazawa, a nursing care consultant, said flooding was a consideration when she was deciding where in Osaka to live. When she moved there she talked to her colleagues about risks, she said. That is why shr always rented apartments on the fourth storey or higher. Alhough it is worrying, never considerd moving. In Alexandria, Egypt 3 million people are affected. On the Alexandria Corniche, waves slowly lap at a shoreline dotted with plastic chairs and umbrellas from beachside cafes. Students perch on steps of imposing Alexandria library. Its the same coastline that draws locals to its scenic vistas threatening to slowly engulf historic city as sea levels rises. 847-waspadai_perairan_babel_hujan_petir_dan_gelombang_tinggi-696x341

The IPCC reported that Alexandria’s beaches would be submerged with a 0.5-metre sea-level rise, while 8 million people would be displaced by flooding in Alexandria and the Nile Delta if no protective measures are taken. A 3C world threatens far greater damage than that. Yet for many residents, there is little public information to connect the increasingly chaotic weather and floods with climate change. The vast majority of Alexandrians do not have access to knowledge so quite worrying. Experts say governments must raise awareness of problems not wait until it too late as already happening, said 22-year-old student Kareem Mohammed. It is necessary to train people to prepare in advance for high waves damaging a city impacted by storm surges. Some do not realise urgency of such impending disasters so everyone thinks we should act on this problem 50 or 80 years from now, agreed his friend, Hazem Hassan, a student in marine biology at a nearby Alexandria University. FANTASY_Moses_Ocean_Freeway Officials maintain protective measures are being taken as Egypt spends 700m EGP [£30m] annually to protect north coast,” said Dr Magdy Allam, head of Arab Environmental Experts Union and was part of the Egyptian environment ministry. So miracles are needed to save humanity from drowning by highwaves towering over cities breaching walls too small to contain such pressures. Allam cited Mohammed Ali sea wall, built in 1830 as key protection as well as the concrete blocks lining the shoreline designed to detour flood water away from residential neighbourhoods. But critics say this is far from enough given the large-scale high wave problems. So studies indicating the city, one of many coastal human settlements around the world will be partially submerged by 2070 if nothing is done,” said Ahmed Hassan, of Save Alexandria Initiative, a group that works to raise awareness of the effects of climate change on the city.2DDC00D000000578-3294639-Photos_of_yesterday_s_remarkable_attempts_to_surf_Atlantic_swell-a-4_1446107336034

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

1.8 million people affected as residents of Brazil’s postcard city with plenty of reasons to fear global warming even if they do not quite know it. According to Climate Central temperature rise of 3C would cause flooding of not just Rio’s famous beaches such as Copacabana and its waterfront domestic airport, but also inland areas of the Barra de Tijuca neighbourhood, where that last year’s Olympic Games were held. Barra is built around a network of heavily polluted lagoons that empty into the sea. The prospect of it being underwater alarms resident Sueli Gonçalves, 46, who runs pensioners’ health projects, with a 23-year-old son Yuri Sanchez carrying the shopping past Olympic Park. “My God. Oh Jesus,” she said, with nervous laugh  will leave there, go to United States, To Canada.” The family knew about global warming but unaware of potential scale of impact on upscale neighbourhood of smart condominiums and the shopping mall. She said, Nobody takes it seriously people do not think longterm. The storm surges recently destroyed hundreds of metre’s beautiful beachfront pavement overlooking Macumba beach, a popular surfing spot on Rio’s western fringes. Last year, heavy waves in other storm surges felled an elevated, clifftop cycle path between Leblon beach and Barra de Tijuca which had not been built to survive high seas, killing two people.Tidal-wave-Tsunami-Spain-portugal-796446

So last year, Rio’s city government and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro produced a study entitled Strategy for Adapting to Climate Change. Current challenge consist of the need to deepen knowledge and monitoring of oceanic phenomena and the evolution of the sea bed and coast,” a spokeswoman for the city’s secretariat of the environment said in an email. An “adaption plan” for climate change produced with the help of professors from federal university suggests strategies to deal with needs and vulnerabilities in areas such as transport, health and housing. But so far little has been done. Nara Pinto, 38, who lives in the sprawling Rocinha favela and sells snacks on the pavement overlooking Copacabana beach, said the loss of Rio’s famous beaches would cost a lot of jobs. “The beach is tourist point,” she said. What can be done to stop this?U414P886T1D12824F12DT20120416143632

Shanghai, China

17.5 million people affected if Shanghai is completely gone some think they will move to Tibet!” says the resident Wang Liubin, when he is shown projections for the city after 3C of global warming. When it comes to flooding coastal city is one of the world’s most vulnerable. As one of the world’s biggest ports, former fishing village is bordered by Yangtze river in the north and divided through the middle by the Huangpu river; the municipality involves several islands, two long coastlines, shipping ports, and miles of canals, rivers, and waterways. In 2012, a report from a team of UK and Dutch scientists declared Shanghai the most vulnerable major city in the world to serious flooding, based on the factors such as numbers of people living close to the coastline, time needed to recover from flooding, and measures to prevent floodwater. According to those Climate Central projections, 17.5 million people could be displaced by rising waters if the global temperatures increase by 3C. Projections show a vast majority of city could be submerged in water, including much of the downtown area, landmarks such as Lujiazui skyline and historical Bund, airports and outlying Chongming Island. Since 2012, the government has been making steady inroads to tackle the threat, including building China’s largest deepwater drainage system beneath Suzhou Creek waterway, made up of 15km of pipes to drain rainwater across a 58 sq km area. It has rolled out 40bn yuan (£5bn) River Flood Discharge project stretching for 120km between Lake Taihu and the Huangpu river to try to mitigate the risk of upstream lake flooding. Flood prevention walls are being built along waterfront in places so high the river is blocked from view and 200km more are promised across city’s outlying districts. Flood controls are put in place along famous Bund waterfront, where walkway was raised to help counter flood risk, as well as a series of water controls and dams.b4adfbf40ebb52097fa252ab0eead7c4c38bb9536dc408b439e85280e8b4d467ce67cc4064d7e525c51d2c39fd68607b40ddd90a6bb5b6bf6a234408756de1af (1)Ingeniero afirma que Harvey e Irma fueron creados por el hombreat195403

Miami, US

2.7 million people are affected but few other cities in the world have as much go lose from rising sea levels as Miami, and the alarm bells sound ever louder with each successive the king tide that overwhelms coastal defences and sends knee-deep seawater coursing through downtown streets. Locals consider this the “new normal” if the biggest city of Florida’s largest metropolitan area is to cease to exist with 3C temperature rise. At 2C, forecasts show the entire bottom third of Florida area south of the Lake Okeechobee currently home to more than 7 million people submerged, with grim projections for the rest of the state in a little more than half a century. In Miami-Dade county alone, almost $15bn of coastal property at risk of flooding in the next 15 years. A sense of urgency is evident at city hall as commissioners are asking voters to approve a Miami Forever Bond in the November ballot including $192m for upgrading pump stations, improving drainage to raising sea walls. As a really precious city many people love it willing to invest right now but it is going to take lots of more funds to protect it,” said Ken Russell, the city commission’s vice-chair. Last year, the city of Miami appointed sea-rise expert Jane Gilbert in newly created role chief resilience officer with instructions for a robust stormwater management plan to look at storm surge like Hurricane Irma in September which brought significant flooding to downtown Brickell and the neighbouring Coconut GroveProposals include elevating roads or abandoning neighbourhoods to the water to protect others. Needs universal recognition all in this together, to protect this amazing global city that it has become,” she said. Natalia Ortiz, grew up in Miami, fears the future as its very scary,” said Ortiz, who works with Cleo, a climate change advocacy group. Says son is 11 daughter nine, so they’re young but thinks about their future, will they be able to raise their children in Miami the way had the luxury of raising mine?” San-Andreas-Faultmaxresdefault

California and Canada

California is said to be awaiting ‘big one’ caused by the stress faultline increasing earthquakes and subsequent tsunamis. Since September 2017, CALIFORNIA has been rocked by 28 earthquakes in just 24 hours, sparking fears “big one” could roar any moment soon.  Big One WILL hit California soon as huge earthquake rattles Mexico scientist said. California could be in for a huge earthquake as a scientists warns potentially catastrophic San Andreas fault could be about to rupture following the deadly tremors in Mexico. In days following the powerful 7.1 quake in Mexico City which killed more than 200 people warnings are being issued to prepare survival kits of food and water and be alert daily while going about normal business. California is preparing for next big earthquake as a leading Los Angeles News reported on ‘The Big One’ 03:43 (CNN) Channel, 30th September 2017. The scene is terrifying as entire sections of a Mexico crumbled so people are being warned to get ready for any changes that will take place. San Andreas Fault in California stretching in continental fault extends roughly 1,200 kilometers through California. It forms tectonic boundary between Pacific Plate and North American Plate and motion is right-lateral strike-slip.

In 2000, living in landlocked region with no sea whatsoever I was completely surrounded by the high sea waves yet not drowned in a dream. It was before popular internet data readily available or current events recorded on tsunamis so the dream bothered me. I went to an environmental lecture the next day and the lecturer’s topic was on exactly what I saw in the dream. He showed us maps and gave notes on the rising sea levels and the earthquakes happening. I did not mention my dream to anyone just was amazed at the information given. The lecture said it was all happening so continues to happen. He gave namelist of same cities and many more in lecture notes that will be submerged if nothing is done about them advance. It sent a chill down my spine as I pondered over those lecture notes. I recalled my dream and felt spirit of heaviness crying tears over the details. I mentioned to some people affected if possible to move or do something about it to help others. On the whole not long after dream so many cities shared on TV high wave disasters we were taught about. The lecturer said he had friends who owned tourist travel businesses in some of those places so was also deeply concerned. Then other places like Louisiana, the Philippines, Japan among other started experiencing the highwaves. In addition, tidal Sun and moon magnetic waves compound a sea warmed up to produce huge waves. As Fatima predicted in 1917 tsunamis to be shared in 1962, it was sealed and was never made public so many perished. In Isaiah 52:7 God’s word says beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of one who brings good news to publish peace bringing good news of happiness and publishes salvation saying to Zion, Your God reigns. In same way God extends HIS Mercy and grace by delaying these disasters so people can hear the Gospel before it is too late. As Moses and Israel faced red sea and were miraculously saved and delivered from danger so God is able to save those crying unto Him to save humanity once again. With God all things are possible ask for God’s miraculous protection and deliverance. Jesus calmed storm at sea so call Jesus to help and be kind to yourself listening to instructions on the weather forecasts. Take action in advance to preserve lives in Jesus Name because God is able.moses-parting-red-sea-prince-of-egypt

This happenings sadly are part of end time judgements of WRATH of God and Wrath of Christ. Humanity is given a choice to change behaviour patterns since invention of electricity damage to earth increased. From planes throwing nuclear bombs to chem trails or missiles there comes a point God wants earth to be restored from destructions. People are unwilling to accept change or live simple lives that does not destroy earth with plastic wastes, damaging flora and fauna.  Toxic chemical destroy nature, organic plants and human lives now suffering from previously unheard of diseases. God decided enough is enough so sending Nibiru wormwood to cause havoc to shake earth. God waited 6,000 years patiently by hoping all mankind would come their senses by their own choice to submit to God. Although It is true billions love God and devoted to HIM transition is taking place by God wanting to restore HIS earth to original perfection again. The great Tribulation cataclysmic events are beggining to unfold and sadly it gets worse before it gets better. If you are reading this article make sure you are in God’s Kingdom by accepting His Son. This is the condition God gives for HIS salvation plan through Jesus to endure ETERNAL life. After Rapture things get even worse than happening now and one does not want to be left behind in Jesus Name. Afterwards the new earth will be brought into existence replacing the old destroyed planet. This is in the Bible orchestrated by the creator of the universe to take back HIS property. In the past God destroyed people by flood waters in Noah’s days and fire, Sodom and Gomorrah. Jesus said as it was in days of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah so will it be until Son of man Jesus returns to take back power to rule and Reign as KING of Kings on earth in Israel.

HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD

291754852_640

Confidence in God is inbuilt in the brain to receive information, process, to take an action, store, apply or discard based on relevance. So scientists successfully have mapped parts of brain enhancing positive thinking to enable reinforcing good thoughts. When we think about ourselves positively, we are stimulating parts of our brains involved in reward, motivation, pleasure, says Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom. According to Dr Stacie Grossman Bloom a neuroscientist who has three daughters who also has a successful career at the NYU Langone Medical Center in New York. She has examined the role neuroscience plays in boosting confidence. This is particularly useful to many people who need exactly that, she writes as part of this year’s 100 Women Challenge. As primary carers or nurtures the mother’s confidence rubs on a child in the formative years of growing up. A happy mother is a happy child and happy family so is important to ensure the confidence of the mother is especially enhanced and supported. It takes a whole village to raise a child so the woman’s confidence is essential for the happiness of the spouse and vice versa. Confidence radiates in a person so is felt by those around that person so necessary to promote positive thinking. The world is so full of negative news it may seem impossible to think or to feel positive at any given moment. However confidence in God is the anchor of hope and joy in spite of adversity.images

confidence-in-the-lord2Confidence in God is unshaken by those circumstances of life having assurance God is still on the throne. Confidence is something many people want but do not know how to get. We need to embrace our abilities, our values and have a self-esteem to be successful. Without it, we are less likely to seek promotion, speak up in meetings and rise into leadership positions. This ultimately has enormous impact as various studies after studies shows having confident people at work in position of power correlates with the profitability collaborative environment and improved problem solving. So with some practice, we can use neuroscience to help to be more confident. The most influential or the inspirational names around the world every year are full of confidence. In 2017, challenging people to tackle the 4 biggest problems facing people today like glass ceiling, female illiteracy, harassment in public spaces and sexism in sport. With the help of all hopefully can be coming up with many real-life solutions and so we want you to get involved with your ideas. 8aa3408d68e32286c91a4aeea3380fd6 CONFIDENCE-IN-GOD+copy

Thinking positively we know enhances self-confidence like all other personality traits reside within our brains. Alhough a large part of architecture of the brain is predetermined yet experiences and the choices we make continue to shape us. Over the course of life we acquire new knowledge, abilities by modulating the intricate and malleable connections between the cells and circuits in brains. We can utilise neuroscience to silence our negative inner voices and boost our confidence. These strategies work by engaging “value areas” of the brain. When we think about ourselves more positively, we are able to stimulate the parts of our brains that are involved in reward, motivation, and pleasure. One output of this pattern of neurological activation is we literally feel good when confident, we hold our heads high.Dr. Bloom with her three daughtersDr. Bloom with her three daughters

A healthy positive feeling is contagious so promotes those around us to be more engaged with us, whether its colleagues, our friends, or troops. The reinforcing reactions we see and feel in response to our confidence feedbacks to our brains to encourage more activity. So the first step is to push back against obstacles we know stand in our way being mindful of situations and deciding to be confident. Making complex decision is a multi-step process that taps into our emotions and engages many other parts of the brain.

Train your brain

brainWhen we have made the decision to be confident, we have to start training our brains. The Above brain scan details by DR. GYORGY BUZSAKI, NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE, shows the orange structure here as one of billions of neurons that is often stretching out to make connection (synapses) you see in yellow (more than 75,000). Those connections are what we are tweaking when we learn to choose confidence Just like mastering any other talent, gaining self-assurance requires repetition and time. Every time we do or learn something new, our brains adjust to store our new skill or bit of knowledge. This happens because parts of our brains are plastic and synapses that connect our brain cells, called the neurons, to each other can be modified, strengthened, and even newly created to store what we have acquired in this case confidence boost communication. From a scientific perspective people can blame both nature nurture for stacking the odds against them when it comes to valuing themselves. A biological reality is that women secrete different levels of hormones than men so react differently to the same world around us.brainThis brain scan shows “value areas” of the brain. DR PAUL GLIMCHER AND IFAT LEVY’s image caption reveal the areas of the brain in these images that are coloured to show they are activated “value areas” of the brain. Women tend to have a desire to please others, to seek acceptance, inclusion and avoid conflict. The way women respond to a stressful situations is different to men. While the men tend to take more risk when under pressure, the women look for the surer solutions and reach out to connect with others to manage stress. These genetic differences are compounded by the fact that we are socialized differently from the moment we are born and a pink hat is placed upon our heads.

Boys and girls

As we grow up, young women are not necessarily taught to exhibit any self-confidence, and if we do, we are often criticized for being “snobby” or “stuck-up” or “bitchy” words seldom associated with men. We hear damaging terms like “women’s intuition” suggesting that we aren’t making strategic analyses, but basing our decisions on some ethereal gut feeling but study after study shows women and men equally data driven. And the relentless emphasis placed on how we look erodes our self-image and for most of us, gets worse over time. As a mother of 3 young girls, this resonates every time daughters receive another impossibly-proportioned doll designed for dress up, caregiving, or primping.

Some women in a perceived masculine job are treated with ridicule finding it hard to convince men they are as good and competent as required to do the job even with their identical qualifications trained by exact same Institute. These bias comes in underhand tactics, jokes derogatory of performance and hurtful comments that can affect confidence. It is sometimes deliberately done hoping it drives away unwanted females from an all male exclusive zone. These can be do traumatic for women that it is very necessary to educate men on how to act, behave or talk to women. Especially the women of diversity background raised in serious environments teach respect of the emotional feeling others. Healthy interactions are required in a civilised  society that prides itself on equal rights or equal opportunities. Women are still facing hitting a glass ceiling if they also desire promotion by climbing a broken ladder. It is well-documented we way we raise girls and women has a lasting impact on way they view themselves and their abilities. Negative messages will engender self-doubt and lead us to underestimate ourselves. The result is not only a nearly universal feeling of imposter syndrome but fear of making mistakes, suspicion of underperforming unattainable quest for perfection. This is what is shutting down when making a decision to be more confident.confidence-blog-Jan1-1

Practice, practice, practice

It doesn’t matter what level of self-assurance you start at, the more time and effort you dedicate to practicing being more confident, the faster your brain will change and the faster you’ll master it. So it is important to remove ourselves from situations and people who make you feel bad because confidence largely comes from being in supportive environment. Environment comprises people around us and what we choose to focus our attention on. It is beneficial to concentrate on things that are empowering and to steer clear of exposure to images and contents that make us feel bad about ourselves. The way we choose to hold and to conduct ourselves is another factor. The mental simulations help envisioning ourselves finishing a race, speaking in public to a standing ovation, mastering job, getting a degree can all help build ourselves up. Just as a coach gives encouraging pep talk to the team before taking the field, we can give ourselves a confidence lift. Notably, these practices have an impact on our overall health and wellbeing, serving as buffer to stress, depression, and fostering good mental and physical health. When we choose confidence, we are rewiring our brains and we are able to change ourselves and our world, for the better. So how would you feel if you can become more confident, happier go influence people in a more confident manner. With God all things are possible.

THE VISION OF DEAD GOATS

goats-deadI had a vision of dead goats in a dream while owner of dead herds stood in the middle crying. We visited owner with soul food, cooked meals to fellowship but instead found him too grieving to enjoy meal then I woke up. I checked the Bible for prophecies on goats and I looked at the closest images on google that seeems close enough to recount and share my dream. This process brought me unexpectedly to goats being culled in Galapagos as I was about to write this blog. In the Bible Judas knew what he was doing when he double-crossed his friend Jesus. “What will you give me if I betray him to you?” he asked conspiring priests in the famous Bible story. The story of Judas Goat is more tragic. She had no idea she was leading her friends to their deaths. Her captors sterilized her first, coated her with hormones so she reeked of fertility. They collared her with a radio-tracking device and let her loose. Nearby male goats smelled and sought her out. As soon as they found her, people swooped in and shot them. The hunters saved Judas, so they could repeat the set-up again and again.Livestock-Perish-Due-To-Floods-in-Dukana-696x392

It was all part of a six-year, $6 million project in which conservationists killed nearly 80,000 feral goats on Santiago Island in the Galápagos. Similar goat genocides had happened on 128 other islands, including nearby Pinta, but never on any as large as Santiago, which spans 144,470 acres. The goats, introduced by sailers hundreds of years earlier, were decimating all flavours of vegetation there, putting ground birds, giant tortoises and species in danger. So officials conservationist in Galápagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Foundation decided the goats had to go. The logistical details are fascinating. The first phase, from December 2001 to January 2004, was ground hunting. Researchers recruited locals, many of whom had never hunted before, and taught them how to use hunting dogs, rifles, radios, telemetry and GPS. Then they started the cold and systematic business of killing let out a little gasp when reading a description of one of the techniques from a research paper:14bg_GBTVSHI-W0+15GB_NK_P1.jpg

During the first 2 years of the campaign, we corralled goats in the highlands where they concentrated during dry months. We constructed temporary corrals with winged extensions of netting (10 x 10-cm mesh) strung between trees or posts at an average of 1.8 m high, with a skirt hanging on the ground weighted down with rocks. We used winged extensions, up to 6.5 km long, to funnel animals into corrals. Goats were mustered into corrals by hunters on foot or horseback, along with the aid of air horns and rifle shots. We euthanized corralled goats in accordance with American Association of Zoo Veterinarians guidelines.

Looked up those wildlife management of goats, they recommend an overdose of succinylcholine followed by a stun-gun or shotgun to the head. The ground-hunting phase of project killed 53,782 goats. The second phase was 3 months of aerial attacks, by specialized hunters from New Zealand using semiautomatic rifles. This video tells you all you need to know about Phase 2:

Ground and aerial hunting wiped out 98.5 percent of the goat population on Santiago. But the thing about eradication is, you can’t just do a pretty good job. If one pregnant goat manages to escape, all of your progress could be reversed. As the researchers explain in that paper: “For large-scale eradication to succeed and maximize conservation return on investment, an eradication ethic is essential. Every animal, from the first to the last, must be treated as last animal on the island. The campaign embraces a zero-escape policy.” That’s why the Judas Goat is so important: she finishes the job. There were 213 Judas Goats involved in Santiago job: males, females and hormone-doused females. The latter, nicknamed Mata Haris, were most effective. Between June 2004 and November 2005, Judas Goats entrapped 1,174 others, completing eradication. A year later, the researchers came back and covered the entire island again with hunters and dogs. The only goats left were Judas Goats. At the time, it was the largest most successful mammal eradication project ever done. Previous efforts had taken two or three decades to kill far fewer animals, partly because they only used a few dozen Judas Goats. After the win on Santiago, authorities launched another eradication campaign on the much larger island of Isabela. The top half of the island, which is not inhabited by humans, is clear of goats. DC5W-rgW0AAQfGPOn both islands, after goats left vegetation came back with a vengeance, and so did some endemic species. In Santiago, population of Galápagos rail, a brown ground bird, went up more than 10 times. Rationally, I should have no trouble with the mass killings. as not a vegetarian and not particularly fond of goats. The researchers seem to follow ethical standards, and they’re doing it all in the name of biodiversity. Yet, emotionally, hearing about killing sprees makes it queasy not the only one. Back to States a traveler wrote in email:

I really enjoyed trip, but the one big downer for me was extermination of the goats and the donkeys and their very anti-Darwin approach…

Everything has a right to live. The goats could have been herded and shipped to Australia.  Not as cheap or as macho as slaughtering them from helicopters, but then no-kill shelters cost more to run than kill shelters. As you can guess I did not contribute to the continued extermination of non-endemic species in the Galapagos.

Wondering if eradication campaigns, for good done has a serious downside. Are they, anti-Darwinian in a way that matters, scientifically is the negative emotional reaction causing the lots of tourists to hold on to money otherwise donated to conservation organizations? How about encouraging people, export of goats to neighbouring countries or fences to contain them for the herders to sell globally. Australians encourage people to eat kangaroo meat so could a similar solution not be found there? In an age of famine and drought it seems meat destroyed could be eaten by those who eat meat. Why not processed meat to sell frozen or as used in pet foods?Goats-on-IsabelaProjectIsabela.GNPS_

The goat story has similarities in Bible from Matthew 25:31–46: “But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. metaphorically speaking God uses imagery to give Gospel truth to warn people to learn the Bible message. Is it possible God is saying, although His perfect soul food to feed mankind has already been provided in Jesus yet some ‘goats’ may be too late culled by enemy before rescue? The Bible’s use of goats and sheep as metaphors for Christians is symbolic of the church compared with the sheep. Christ is the Good Shepherd and His sheep stated in John 10:11, 14. Traits of sheep in Psalm 23 and John 10 gives a picture of eternal life but goats condemnation. The goats are used by God to symbolize evil in numerous instances in the Bible. In  Zechariah 10:3 God says says HE will punish the goats. In Matthew 25:31-46 Christ’s Parable of sheep and the goats tells of His return to judge the nations. Verse 33 says, Christ will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.” The sheep are given eternal life, but the goats are cast into the lake of fire. This Scripture shows it is better to be a sheep and not those goats. God uses goats in negative light but as admirable, intelligent, sensitive, playful animals they quickly respond to individual attention affection. But goats are very capricious, impulsive, unpredictable, devious and contrary. When grazing, is not unusual to see their heads through a fence, straining to reach the grass that is always greener on other side. They climb trees to graze, stand on their hind legs, stretching for tender leaves out of reach. Goats are never content with what they have. They are experts in opening gates and squeezing through small gaps because they hate to be confined. Fences that will handle sheep, cattle, and horses will not hold goats so work tirelessly to spring themselves from situations they deem inhibiting.Goats_Alcedo_Josh

Consequently, goats are not very good followers. “Gregarious behavior” is the term referring to flock or herd instincts found in sheep, cattle or horses. Again, this quality is rather weak in goats; they prefer leading or going off on their own. Meat packers use this instinct in sheep and goats to their advantage. They train an old goat called “Judas,” to lead sheep to pen to slaughter. A well-trained Judas will lead group after group of sheep to slaughter all day long. Goats  possess a stubborn streak. A friend once tried to move a goat in a certain direction. Goats resist direction of shepherd so go off in own direction the goat wanted to go in. Goats are intelligent, playful, impulsive, unpredictable, and devious. The goat’s characteristics is clear, though not evil, is used as a scape goat. Some of their traits are similar to the spiritually found in some Christians as unpredictable, not listening to instructions or directions of God thinking above all. A goat is one who independently does own thing, so wants to take over and ruin it all. So has trouble functioning in a group, and does not want to be led under control of their leaders. In chapter 3:13 James’ advice to leader is follow higher standard of God:

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct his works are done in the meekness of wisdom of God.

In Halley’s Bible Handbook, p. 660, the commentator writes these verses:

This passage says teachers, must aim to teach doctrine of God, have personal affection for Christ, and produce ETERNAL good fruits.

sheep-and-goatsGoats in a congregation tend to divide it, leading the sheep astray. Many goat-like characteristics, some good, some bad so as understand in the biblical metaphor about goats, and what Christ says their ultimate end will be, we can look on this side of ourselves in a more urgent light. A Christian cannot stand still but not all movement is proper growth, Christian’s life must move in the right direction on path of Kingdom of God. Not want to be sidetracked by following own choosing on a whim out of stubbornness or need for independence. A sheep follows the Shepherd, peacefully moving forward with the flock, content to be led because faith in God. A sheep responds to their Shepherd’s voice and goes as directed. A goat follows own lead creating disunity when in contact with others in the flock. Because of an independent nature often finds in contention with the Shepherd for leadership of the flock, leading some astray. A goat eats things sheep would avoid because they have no value and cause sickness. These serious spiritual characteristics of sheep or a goat and goats leave room for food for thought. Some sheep and goats perish in storms seen on November 15, 2013, two days after a ferocious storm and after days of heavy floods in Somalia’s northeastern Puntland. And in drought striken zones suddenly die through starvation, lack of water or thunder strikes. The unforseen circumstances are challenging affecting both animals and humans especially the cost of causes beyond human control. In end times, prophecies predict uncertain weather patterns affecting nature as part of the bigger picture of changes happening globally. Despite misfortunes booming goat sales is thriving business with Nigeria flying 300,000 goats each week to Saudi Arabia so why not sell the goats to invest in restoring the land.

CHRIST THE ORION HUNTER?

5015823Matthew 24 says the Sign of the Son of man will appear in the skies to warn people to be ready for rapture and second coming of Jesus. Jesus stood among 7 stars in Revelations to warn the 7 churches and mankind. Jesus in last days as ORION CONSTELLATION star Betelgeuse is the Brightest Star in constellation Orion called Alpha Orionis. God the Alpha and Omega uses symbols, signs and wonders seen in Jesus Christ. Revelation 4:11 says “Worthy are you, our LORD and God, to receive GLORY, HONOUR and POWER, for you created all things and by your will they exist as created.” Fascinating information shows Orion constellation is the most prominent in night-time sky in winter in the northern or southern latitude seen on clear night. Naked eye can see about 4000 stars in each hemisphere of the sky. Millions of the most up-to-date astronomy catalogues show there are at least few billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy. Of all infinite number of stars in the whole universe, at least a 100 billion billion in the observable universe and about 100 billion billion galaxies Jesus Christ Star stands out clearly seen on the globe revealing God to humans! So this article features the most prominent star red giant star called Betelgeuse seen in pictures or graphic images on the right shoulder of a male figure said to represent the Messianic constellation Orion, which represents Yahshua our Messiah as the Prince of princes who conquered death and the devil for us. His supremacy over evil is seen in the star marking his left foot named Rigel, which is crushing the head of serpent beneath his feet. Revelations 19:15-20 says Coming out of His mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. He will rule them with an iron sceptre and He treads the winepress of the fury of the WRATH of God ALMIGHTY. 16 On His robe and on His thigh this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all birds flying in midair, “Come, gather together for the great supper of God, 18 so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and the mighty, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.” 19 Then I saw the beast and kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army. 20 The beast was captured, and with it false prophet who performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he deluded those who received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur of hell by Jesus.

Jesus the Reaper, Bridegroom, KING of Kings with sickle in Hand Gospel Truth unfolding Word of God in world coming to reap harvest with sickle and thrash winepress of blood. He that Sits on the cloud will thrust His sickle on earth and the earth is reaped says Revelations 14 : 15. Jesus’ story of wheat and tares about endtime harvest of believers as wheat and unbelievers as tares will happen. It is exposition of Revelation of Jesus as a good encouragement to believers to stay focused in God in Christ but warns the tares of Wrath of God and Jesus. He that sits on the cloud puts His sickle on earth in the harvest so the​ wheat is separated from tares and saved but tares burnt like chaff in hellfire. The symbol depicts Jesus like Orion hunter’s sword that will thrash evil and burn all enemies in hell. Betelgeuse is a massive star that is red in color supposedly because it may be nearing the end of its life span. Yet allegorically, its red colour suggests that it symbolizes a blood sacrifice, and that is what our Messiah Yahshua was for us! The right shoulder of man signifies strengths or triumphs, while his left shoulder allegorically is tied to his weaknesses or sorrows. This is also true of the right and left hands. In Orion, the right shoulder and hand signify “The Coming Branch”. This is an allusion to Yahshua our Messiah as the Righteous Branch out of Seth and Jesse. The star Betelgeuse is tied to star called Spica or “The Branch” in the sign Virgo Virgin symbol for Yahshua’s Jewish mother Miriam and His grafted-in Gentile Bride.226646a4c4e14e44290c4e6d4db473e8SevenStarsOrionThe top he left shoulder of Orion has the bright star called “Bellatrix” in Latin the feminine form verb of noun “Bellator” meaning “Warrior.“ Semitic languages, interpret this star to mean “quickly coming.” So, taking both meanings into consideration, Orion ‘Warrior Coming Quickly’ as said in Scripture “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have that no one may take your crown.” Revelation 3:11 “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.” Revelation 22:7 “behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to works.” Revelation 22:12 “He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly. Amen. So come, Lord Jesus Adonai Yahshua says Revelation 22:20. the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-15-638

the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-28-638

God’s Masterplan of salvation is through Jesus Christ, for God so Loves the world HE gave HIS Only begotten Son Jesus to save sinners. So perfectly fitting Christ’s role as the Saviour, Warrior coming to judge everyone by their works and to slay the wicked one on that day soon as associated with left shoulder denoting sorrow. This shows that Yahshua will take no joy in killing the wicked but will do so in sorrow as expression of God’s righteous anger and perfect judgment. And Yahshua extends God’s mercy to those who love God and His Son, the wicked who reject Christ perish forever in Hell, and Yahshua will be their judge and executioner. This is important for all to accept Yahshua as the Messiah, humble themselves before God ask for forgiveness live righteously. Centuries have passed since the Bible has warned mankind of the imminent coming of Jesus in a moment of Rapture and then great tribulations intensifies. Jesus said as it was in the days of Noah and flood and days of Sodom and Gomorrah so His Coming saves some but will destroy wicked who reject God in Jesus Name.  betelgeuse-orion_text

The blessings of God depends on how you view your place in the cosmos and your purpose of your life. Vacillation between God’s Viewpoint and secular opinions influence spiritual maturity or growth. So the ability to see the blessing at times disguised means studying the word of God to understand the Bible better. Remember understanding God means an eternal gift of true joy in Christ our hope of Glory. Without blessing of God life is worse than God planned for mankind to live in better times arriving soon when Rapture happens. Another interesting figure in Orion Constellation is the Horsehead Nebula. It is just south of Al Nitak, the brightest star in Orion’s Belt. Al Nitak means “The Wounded One,” or “The Slain One” in Arabic. Al Nitak connected to Great Pyramid at Giza by Jesus living in Egypt as a symbol for Yahshua as our atonement sacrifice and for redeemed by His shed blood as the Bride of Christ, and those who dwell in New Jerusalem.wpid-orion-nile-pyramids-milky-way

m42_03Due to these associations the Horsehead Nebula could be envisioned connected to the constellation Pegasus near Pisces as the white horse Yahshua will ride when He returns with His holy angels and His saints during the Battle of Armageddon. The Horsehead Nebula is a small part of larger nebula primarily reddish in colour suggests the coming judgment of the wicked, where blood of those slain will form a lake-sized pool 1600 furlongs = 200 miles and reach up to the height of horse’s bridle, as it says in Revelation 14:20: “And the winepress was trampled outside the city and blood came out of winepress, up to horses’ bridles, for one thousand six hundred furlongs.” Those slain will pile high to the height of the horse for beasts from the sea and birds of prey to feast on in Revelation 19:15. To share more truth about beautiful constellation excerpt from book The Language of God in Universe is available as a paperback, PDF E-Book, or Kindle book at POEM Web Site and at Amazon.com. This entire 400-page book teaches about the meaning of the Gospel in the Stars, and this small portion talks about the lovely meaning of Orion and its principal stars On page 93: “The star on Orion’s right shoulder named Betelgeuse is one of the most massive star in galaxy. Considered 700 times larger than earth’s Sun name Betelgeuse means The Branch Coming.0e193d8e865ef93d57df4a1cacae9c77--winter-solstice-christmas-time

Many proponents of Gospel in the Stars believe star Betelgeuse represents the Righteous Branch coming through the line of Seth as Yahshua. The Betelgeuse in Orion constellation represents our Saviour as our resurrected Redeemer. The name “Orion” means “He who comes forth as light.” This appellation can apply to Christ’s role as the Messiah. Another star in Orion’s foot marks the constellation as a representation of the Messiah to Come Desired of All Nations (Haggai 2:7). This star, “Rigel,” means “The Foot That Crushes.” In the heavens the constellation of Orion is seen as a warrior with one foot over the head of the serpent represented by constellation erroneously called Lepus, the Hare. As the “Seed of the Woman” designated by Virgo, Yahshua finally fatally crushed the head of the Serpent called satan when He died for our sins and rose from the dead. When He comes as a conquering King, Yahshua will crush the Serpent satan forever.orion_slide151

The idea Orion represents Yahshua as a conquering King dressed in trappings of warrior exemplifies Orion’s place in the Mazzaroth as the first decan of Taurus. The Mazzaroth or Mazarot מַזָּרוֹת, LXX μαζουρωθ The word’s precise meaning is uncertain but in context astronomical constellations interprete it as a term for the zodiac or the constellations thereof in Job 38:31-32. A similar word mazalot (מַּזָּלוֹת) in 2 Kings 23:3-5 may be related as Zodiac Taurus Bull represents raging bull charging forward to crush wicked during the outpouring of God’s Wrath in Tribulation. Orion represents the Messiah Yahshua as the Conquering King of kings and Lord of lords spoken of in Revelation 17:14 and 19:16. And so Rapture God’s Resurrection of the dead preceding the time of trouble of great tribulation. Second Resurrection is the raising up of saints and martyrs for their faith occurring during Tribulation before Yahshua returns in His Glory. In “The Language of God in Prophecy” the details look at the Rapture theory and the idea of the First Resurrection.the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-77-638 the-clock-of-god-in-orion-version-500-46-638The mystery of God supercedes all other constellation theory of Orion abounding everywhere, perhaps because it appears easily seen by the naked eye in the sky above the Earth’s equator, visible from all inhabited places in the world. When Orion rises others always sets so these constellations are never in the sky at the same time! This is symbolic of the fact that light cannot coexist with side by side with darkness, holiness cannot abide in the presence of evil. The Orion constellation was once associated with Nimrod, the king of first apostate world empire after the Great Flood. This may be reason Orion’s image changed from conquering warrior king into a mighty hunter alluded to as “Nimrod, a mighty hunter before Yahweh” in Genesis 10:9. Nimrod saw himself as Orion as just one of long line of the antiChrist vying for power and glory promised to the true Messiah as depicted in Orion in Bible.Position_Alpha_Ori

constellationsAs mentioned under the preceding description of Taurus, Orion is clearly connected to the patriarch Joseph as “the prince among his brothers” in Genesis 49:26. The details of Joseph’s life and character shown to prefigure Christ’s own in many ways. In addition, Gary Hazle via a revelation given to him by God, on the hourglass shape of Orion may depict cup or a chalice Christ drank from at the Last Supper as a Passover meal. In addition, the star forming the horns of Taurus, if extended down to the V-shaped star cluster called Hyades in Taurus’ face depicts a V-shaped tear form when a loaf of unleavened bread is torn apart at Passover! Since Taurus is the sign that shows God’s blessings on the Gentiles and the Tribe of Joseph, it is fitting it clearly show how Gentiles, and the Tribe of Joseph are to be blessed by God! Orion shows strength of blessings to be poured out on Gentile dependant on their faithfulness to New Covenant sealed with Christ’s own precious body and blood. Orion is the triumphant, powerful sign showing the power of God to save Gentiles and the whole world, and offer them salvation from sin, death, and schemes of devil. orionscan2stars4ConstellationsAndStars

Coordinates of Orion NebulaImage titled Find the Orion Nebula Step 10Nebula’s right ascension.The right ascension of a celestial object is the astronomical equivalent of longitude, and measures the distance eastward from the celestial equator towards the vernal equinox (the point at which the celestial equator and ecliptic intersect in spring in northern hemisphere. The Orion Nebula’s right ascension is 5 hours. In other words, the nebula will cross the celestial meridian (the point directly above you or an observer) five hours after the vernal equinox.Image titled Find the Orion Nebula Step 11Nebula’s declination.Declination is an astronomical equivalent to latitude, and provides guidance toward a point on the celestial sphere (the visible “sphere” of stars and astronomical objects surrounding the earth). Declination is measured relative to celestial equator (the line you’d get if the equator were projected out into space). The Orion Nebula’s declination is five degrees. In other words, it lies along a plane five degrees above celestial equator. Hazle’s revelation concerns Orion representing patriarch Joseph depicting a cup Joseph drank from and divined God’s Will in Genesis 44:5,15). Some people suggest Joseph sinned when he used the cup by foretelling the future, the cup may have been used like the water, or wine-filled glasses or bowls used by Magi to gaze at the stars to discern the heavenly signs, wonders showing God’s unchanging Will. Though Orion depicts Joseph, it is ultimately pictures Yahshua our Risen Saviour and Conquering King coming in power at the end of Great Tribulation. And Orion compliments the meaning of Taurus as God’s Grace to the Gentiles and protection from pouring out of God’s Wrath by His ministering angels during the Great Tribulation. This connection is clearer in study Eridanus, River flowing out from under Orion’s feet.” Read more about Orion and constellations in the night-time skies book, ‘The Language of God in Universe’ to purchase POEM Website Amazon.com as Kindle book.

oriOrion’s Mathematical Numbers

This blog came about because a dream vision I had revealed Orion to me in the night sky with mathematical numbers. I said, let me take a paper to write these numbers down because it is too many to remember. Then I woke up, so as usual I searched and studied the Scriptures for Bible confirmation of this vision. This is found in Amos where Orion is written in the text in the Bible. I researched the astronomy documents on Orion and the scientific information agrees with God’s words in the Bible. Scientific astronomy locates Orion as follows a mathematical calculation depicted by the Englishman Flamsteed designation. Orion has the combination numbers of constellation names allocated uniquely identifying Orion often seen by the most naked eye stars in modern constellations visible from southern EnglandFlamsteed’s designations for stars is similar to the Bayer designations, except that they use numbers instead of Greek and Roman letters. Each star is assigned a number and Latin genitive of the constellation it lies in 88 modern constellations for list of constellations and genitive forms of names. Flamsteed designations were assigned to 2554 stars. These numbers originally assigned in order of their increasing right ascension within each constellation, but effects of precession  is slightly out-of-order in some places.orion (1)AoD-rNdCEAELv1N08f0301854080980c20484b3e38a4bc0

This method of designating stars first appeared in a preliminary version of John Flamsteed‘s Historia Coelestis Britannica published by Edmond Halley and Isaac Newton in 1712 without Flamsteed’s approval. The final version of Flamsteed’s catalogue published in 1725 after his death omitted numerical designations altogether. The numbers in use now by French astronomer Joseph Jérôme de Lalande appeared in his 1783 almanac, Éphémérides des mouvemens célestes contained a revised edition of Flamsteed’s catalogue. Lalande noted in his Introduction he got the idea from that unofficial 1712 edition. Flamsteed designations gained popularity in the eighteenth century, and now commonly used when no Bayer designation exists. Where a Bayer designation, with Greek letter exists for a star, it is usually used in preference to Flamsteed designation. Flamsteed numbers generally preferred to Bayer designations with the Roman letters. Well-known stars referred to by Flamsteed numbers include 51 Pegasi, and 61 Cygni. Flamsteed designations are often used instead of the Bayer designation if latter contains the extra attached number like “55 Cancri” is more common than a “Rho-1 Cancri.”Orion-constellation-map

Right ascension (abbreviated RA; symbol α) is the angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox to the hour circle of the point in question.[1] When combined with declination, these astronomical coordinates specify the direction of a point on celestial sphere in the equatorial coordinate system.

Each fine horizontal line marks 1° of declination, and each vertical line marks 4 minutes of R.A. North is up and east is left on both maps. S&T / Craig Michael Utter.

Right ascension and declination as seen on the inside of the celestial sphere. The primary direction of the system is the vernal equinox, the ascending node of the ecliptic (red) on the celestial equator(blue). Right ascension is measured eastward along the celestial equator from the primary direction. An old term, right ascension (Latin, ascensio recta[2]) refers to the ascension, or the point on the celestial equator which rises with any celestial object, as seen from the Earth‘sequator, where the celestial equator intersects the horizon at a right angle. It is contrasted with oblique ascension, the point on the celestial equator which rises with a celestial object as seen from almost anywhere else on Earth, where the celestial equator intersects the horizon at an oblique angle.

Explanation

Right ascension (blue) and declination (green) as seen from outside celestial sphere. Article: Equatorial coordinate system. Right Ascension is the celestial equivalent of terrestrial longitude. Both Right Ascension and longitude measure an angle from a primary direction (a zero point) on an equator. Right Ascension is measured from the vernal equinox or the First Point of Aries, which is the place on celestial sphere where the Sun crosses the celestial equator from south to north at March equinox and is currently located in the constellation Pisces. Right Ascension is measured continuously infull circle from equinox towards the east. Units of angular measure could have been chosen for right ascension, but it is measured in hours (h), minutes (m), and seconds (s), with 24h being equivalent to full circle. Astronomers chose this unit to measure the right ascension because they measure star’s location by timing its passage through the highest point in the sky as the Earth rotates. The highest point in the sky, called meridian, is the projection of a longitude line onto celestial sphere. Since a complete circle contains 24h of right ascension or 360° (degrees of arc), 124 of a circle is measured as 1h of right ascension, or 15°; 1(24×60) of a circle is measured as 1m of right ascension, or 15 minutes of arc (also written as 15′); and 1(24×60×60) of a circle contains 1s of right ascension, or 15 seconds of arc (also written as 15″). A full circle, measured in right-ascension units, contains24 × 60 × 60 = 86 400s, or 24 × 60 = 1 440m, or 24See also: Hour angle

Because right ascensions are measured in hours of rotation of the Earth they can be used to time positions of objects in the sky. For example, if a star with RA = 01h 30m00s is on meridian, a star with RA = 20h 00m 00s is on meridian 18.5 sidereal hours later. Sidereal hour angle, used in celestial navigation, is similar to right ascension, but increases westward rather than eastward. Usually measured in degrees (°), it complements of right ascension with respect to 24h. It is important not to confuse the sidereal hour angle with astronomical concept of hour angle, which measures angular distance of an object westward from the local meridian.

Above all, God the Creator Patent owner of heaven, earth, the firmament and the universe takes centre stage by labelling HIS UNIVERSE with HIS NAME and SON Jesus Name. People name stars created by God without HIS acknowledgment so God reveals His Mysteries to those who love HIM and study HIS words. Jesus the Firstborn Son of creation is the RIGHT Heir with joint heirs of God’s universe. And so God is deconstructing manmade structures that refuse to bow to Kiss the SON of God or perish. As Psalm 2:12 says Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish from the earth. Love Jesus, accept anf embrace Jesus or His Wrath and anger will be unleashed during the great Tribulation. Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him for they shall not perish but have eternal life. God is regenerating the new earth after it is destroyed. Meridian location of Sky’s highest point connects directly to Most High God on earth in Christ Jesus the Messiah Conquering Warrior to execute the wrath of God and wrath of Christ in tribulation. It is amazing the Bible says in the last days God WILL pour His Spirit upon all flesh and old men and women and the young people will dream dreams and see visions. The Orion’s calculated by the location in space-time as birthplace of Jesus was identified by Maggi 3 kings through stars. So God’s Hour Glass is ticking towards the warnings given mankind for centuries to repent to seek and accept GOD ALMIGHTY as the One True Living God. Those who listen and do so by accepting and receiving Jesus Christ are saved into ETERNAL Life. So those who reject Jesus’ free salvation Sacrifice to all sadly will perish. God is reaching out to all to take His messages seriously to be delivered and saved. Researching the vision seen in dream amazed me to find the exact numbers documented as recorded in astrometry. God is really Loving and Merciful so wants all people to be saved in Jesus Name. Jesus said He is Coming soon right at the door to rescue and save His believers. It is interesting Right Ascension reminds us of His Ascension into heaven twice after resurrection and His numerous other ascensions back and forth into heaven as seen and repoted by many people on earth. Jesus is seated on the Right Hand of God ready to Come in the clouds for Rapture of all His believers. Be sure to confess and profess the Name of Jesus, the Only Way to God and be saved. On the 6th of November God showed me the Orion again this time covered in blood with a child standing closeby. So God is warning mankind about the time Jesus will return as Conquering Warrior with his garments soaked in Blood. The book of Revelations talks about Jesus on a white horse with His garments soaked in Blood in the Bible. Jesus, Conquering Warrior will return with blood on His garments riding a white horse during second coming to kill and destroy His enemies accompanied by His saints and angels. Some say the blood represents a reminder of Jesus Sacrifice as the Lamb of God authorised to take vengeance by His Wrath. Others think it is symbolic of blood of His enemies to be splattered by Jesus. Only Jesus knows what His blood on His garments represents and could be both interpretations.   The Orion hunter represents Jesus about to come back when God Decides. When we see blood on the earth or on someone’s clothes, it suggests great injury or death. Blood on the earth therefore marked the spot of either a great battle, a death or a deep wounding. As such it was a marker, a memorial or sign of the act. So this aspect of blood in our dreams must be remembered. So Jesus Messiah the greatest megasuperstar superpower is returning in second coming to judge the world. This is a very serious, urgent warning to be taken extremely seriously by all who read this post to ensure they listen and make the right choice and the decision to please God in Jesus Name. God speaks using metaphoric images to expand meaning of messages to people. God repeats some particular dreams for emphasis to reinforce warning message to mankind before it is too late. This is definitely one of such messages used and repeated twice so far in less than 21 days of exact same dream. God means business so take God very seriously and be saved in Christ Messiah.

GUT BACTERIA & ANXIETY

gut feelGut bacteria affects the brain and mood swings which impact the body. Recent research shows good gut microbes are essential from quality nutrients in foods Gut bacteria creates a serotonin happy mood and joyful mindset. Some of the processed foods deficient in essential mineral nutrients contain residues of toxic chemicals from fertilisers and the pesticides in the food chain. Product can contain unhealthy chemicals affecting a mood swing. Often people who have no time to eat well and without time cook simple healthy menus resort to the junk foods. Cheap unhealthy foods cause the obesity, diabetes and numerous health problems as the meals grabbed eaten too fast for proper digestion. Whatever food is available if desperately hungry is stuffed and gulped down with drinks also unhealthy. The modern trend of the rat race lifestyle means most do not even shop or stock healthy ingredients. Often too expensive within budget due to low incomes may resort to fast foods in high streets, eat whatever is available as job markets in ate in jeapoardy. Your-Gut-BacteriaWith spiralling property prices constant online connectivity, these undoubtedly is anxious times for young people. Stats back this up, with almost one in five 16-24-year-olds in UK dealing with stress and anxiety. A recent study suggests that the anxiety levels may not just be driven to what’s going on inside brains but in gut caused by bacteria microbes. After carrying out research scientists at University College Cork, Ireland found strong links between the high levels of depressive and anxious behaviour and having a low-level of gut microbes. The study showed ‘microbe-free’ displayed higher anxiety levels than those without them. It’s believed the gut’s microbiotic environment influences molecules in 2 areas of the brain’s pre-frontal cortex and amygdala tied to a range of mental health condition of depression anxiety.Gut-bacteria-weight-loss-300x203
Links between what you eat and what you feel emphasise the latest findings in years to come do not only focus on the ins-and-outs of brain chemistry and antidepressants but take a more holistic view of our mental health. A double-pronged treatment is encouraging news to those who have a generalised anxiety disorder. In the UK it’s believed about 5 % of the population and young people affectedHowever, treating food as a solution to complex mental issues is by no-means being suggested. The past few years ‘clean-eating’ trends are criticised by experts saying they cause problems as approach to food unhealthy extreme.

While fad diets may be debunked, according to one specialist, paying attention to your gut isn’t another mere craze. “It definitely isn’t just a trend,” says Dr Megan Rossi, Research Associate at King’s College London. Gut’s sudden rise to prominence as an arbiter of our mental health is due to technological advances, she explains. “We weren’t able to sequence all the bacteria and understand their genetic profiles and their functionality until now,” she explains. Only in the last 10 years has the tech been available to understand the gut’s true potential. “I definitely see the gut as like a second brain,” she says. And, like the brain, we are far from understanding all of its mysteries.diet_620x350_61490876592

But there are some things you can do to keep your gut and your brain fighting fit. Fermented foods, such as kimchi or live yoghurt, are said to be beneficial, while recipes including pulses and legumes, onion, garlic, dates, figs, and asparagus can all help good bacteria to flourish. Dr Rossi says variety is also key: overdosing on just one kind of veg won’t bring the health benefits that varied, plant-based foods do. And she is keen to stress that food isn’t a miracle cure, when it comes to severe, chronic depression. But being kind to your gut might be one important way of being kinder to your mind. If you’d like more information and support about topic be able to get help from experts in healthy eating treatment centres. If you need counselling tell your GP to set up for you to deal with ang deep root causes of anxiety causing unhealthy eating. Pay attention to good healthy diet in general improves health and gets rid of certain illnesses as Jamie Oliver showed by the changes in school meals in UK impact on children’s health and well-being.  In addition anxiety is fuelled by hidden chemical, enhancers and preservatives. It is important that to know and learn to understand effects on brain and body. Gut-Bacteria-InfographicGood food from the rainbow diet ensure each part of the body gets appropriate nutrients necessary for the cell growth, regeneration and repair of the human tissues. Some do not eat properly, resort to online self diagnosis by convincing themselves they have symptoms read about. In the course of counselling, psychiatrists said, following a five-year study of patients treated in 5 English hospitals. Research shows internet was feeding a “silent epidemic” of health anxiety as harmless ailments often mistaken for terrifying diagnoses. And they said the growth of fitness trackers likely increased levels of hypochondria, heaping pressures on cardiac clinics and neurology units. Dr Helen Tyrer, a senior clinical research fellow, Imperial College London, said anxiety was often triggered by event, such as the patient suffering a health scare, somebody in their family getting ill, dying, celebrity their age dying or getting sick. “They become convinced they are developing a serious underlying disease, or that an existing medical problem is much more serious than it is,” she said.Prevent-Your-Gut-Bacteria-From-Making-2Such beliefs are held despite medical evidence to the contrary.” Lead author Professor Peter Tyrer said the internet appeared to be fuelling the trend: “We think increasing frequency is because of cyberchondria,” he said. “People now go to their GP with list of things they’ve looked up on the internet and say ‘what do you make of this and the poor GP, five minutes into the consultation, has four pages of reading to do. “Dr Google is very informative but he doesn’t put things in the right proportion,” he said. It is true Google helps as source of good information but contradictory advise leads to confusion or lack of awareness of the real causes of changes in moods. Food plays major part in human brain formation so eating the right foods can contribute to a healthier mindset. Food is not just an option of favourite palate taste but thought must be put into good food to train people to value their body better. The family meal cannot just depend on ads seen on Telly to feed the precious body and good brain foods. How-Gut-Bacteria-Affects-Brain-and-Body-PinA glamorous food advert picture does not match contents inside the food box or taste anywhere near similar freshly prepared quality good home-made meals. A good budget can buy the affordable ingredients if determined to feed family and eat well. So much time spent online or watching telly can be used instead to prepare these simple quick 15 minute delicious menus for a family. The rise in ADHDT some autism spectrum is linked to chemicals in some foods that must be avoided.

How to cope with anxiety

Dr Rachel Andrew offers her advice for teens struggling with anxiety:

  • Seek appropriate help if you feel you need it
  • Remind yourself that it only forms a part of your strengths, talents and abilities
  • Try and practise mindfulness to stay in the moment, as your anxiety will drive you to constantly think of the future and worst case scenarios
  • Try to stay focused on the present and more manageable situations
  • Take a break on social media or at least have moments in the day where you switch alerts off.

Healthy-Gut-BacteriaThe study, funded by National Institute for Health Research, tracked 444 patients with “severe health anxiety” at cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology and respiratory departments. While some had genuine health complaints, or had suffered them the past, all had abnormal levels of anxiety. Those given cognitive behavioural therapy saw a significant drop in anxiety levels, five years on so similar death rates to those given standard NHS care, suggesting that counselling did not lead to a failure to discover life-threatening illnesses, researchers found. The hospital food is another issue as patients sometimes are unable to eat what is provided. Lots of tons of food is wasted by NHS because is unsuitable for dietary needs in certain situations or patient too ill to eat that sort of food provided. Holistic approach to good diet will reduce some illnesses compounded by junk food or starvation. Healthy food education must extend to manufacturers also and start early from childhood. Convenience foods are good but cannot be totally depended on solely for nutrients. Fresh food quickly prepared contains ‘live’ nutrient than the one stored for years before being eaten.gut-bacteria-boost-health-fb.jpgGutVideo-657x360Scientists filmed this picture seen here showing bad bacteria eating the healthy brain bacteria. In other words the poor diet can create toxic bacteria to damage brain cells, cause some mood swings or depression. Food is medicine to healthy body so provides energy and strength. On the other bad junk food destroys the body slowly causing long-term diseases. Pay attention to your food because you are what you eat. There is no excuse to neglect the body because of healthier foods now abundantly available to choose from. A little effort makes good difference to mood swings and improve serotonin.  It’s better to eat well without the plastic containers damaging earth and the environment because people think they are too busy to cook. Time spent travelling, queueing in long lines for food can be easily used to cook the simple healthy home-made meals. The TV show proved it took longer in some cases to wait for good ordered than to make a freshly prepared meal. So many step by step recipes are available to use to follow and cook meals. A Can’t cook won’t cook TV programme also guided people to turn simple ingredients into gourmets meals fit for a Kings, Queens, or superstars. Experiment with your own favourite foods and cut down the sugar, fat and salt in some foods. It can be done as many people changed diets, felt better and lost weight as a bonus and a glowing skin feeling happier too.

Gut bacteria could be linked to autism, new research suggests (stock image)

  • Gut Bacteria and Autism
  • Due to a three-way relationship between the brain, gut and hormone cortisol
  • This mechanism is thought to influence how ‘messages’ are communicated
  • Bacteria in faeces influences hormones in gut bacteria
  • Further studies on relationship can determine help symptoms 
  • Researchers analyzed gut and brain connections for humans to learn more about symptoms.

Gut bacteria can be linked to autism as a new research suggests. Pathogens in the stomach alter brain’s development and may increase an individual’s risk of suffering from the spectrum disorder, a study implies. A three-way relationship between brain, gut and stress hormone cortisol appears to influence ‘messages’ communicated in the body, which may result in autistic symptoms as research adds. Lead author Austin Mudd from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, said: ‘Changes during infancy can have profound effects on brain development, and its possible the microbiome collection of bacteria, fungi and viruses inhabiting gut plays a role in this process. The researchers further studies required for 3way mechanism to determine autism symptoms. But can be reversed by strengthening the gut’s lining. Study author Dr Qinrui Li from Peking University said ‘Efforts to restore gut microbiota to a healthier person has been shown to be really effective. Its a review of taking probiotics, prebiotics, changing diet for example to gluten and casein-free diets have a positive impact on symptoms. The study carried out by researchers analyzed the brain and gut developments. Researchers examined faeces to determine if bacteria in stools influences compounds in the blood and brains. The Key findings revealed these results that the presence of the bacteria Bacteroides and Clostridium in faeces is associated with higher level substances involved in cell signalling myo-inositol. Bacteroides is also linked to increased amounts of a substance, called creatine, in brain. The bacteria Butyricimonas was found to be linked to the amino acid n-acetylaspartate (NAA) in brain, while Ruminococcus lowered NAA’s cognitive concentration. The presence of such bacteria further influence levels of hormones cortisol and serotonin and determined by gut bacteria. Mr Mudd said: ‘Changes in neurometabolites in infancy can have profound effects on brain development so possible that the microbiome or collection of bacteria, fungi, and viruses inhabiting gut plays a role in this process.’ The findings were published in the journal Gut Microbes. 

SAD WINTER DEPRESSION

171629_20140102_170028_timeSeasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) used to affect me so badly at times I was in bed for days. Also known as the ‘winter depression’ is exacerbated by loss and grief, pain to become unfit and unwell not very actively doing any work for all such reasons or no particular reasons. I did not feel like bubbly self but wanted the curtains drawn during the daytime. I became unwell at times bed ridden for days. It happened consistently for years until my doctor told me about SAD as a condition that affects people during the cold months of transition from summer to winter. The body feels changes in the weather so responds in a different way making people feel sad, down, anxious and depressed. These changes happen so some people dread winter months of returning to work, school in September. Autumn to Winter shorter, colder days seem like a gloomy prospect. Autumn can worsen anxiety and depression as experts say, so why does it affect us and can we beat the blues. I discovered the reason was less Sunshine means less light affects brain parts that control mood swings when it is colder too. Some few people manage to escape into hot zones during winter months for a while. But few people are privileged to escape harsh cold winter. It affects people if too busy to take care of self in a healthy way. Being too busy doing too many things to manage own personal life due to the other demands on time and attention given others often seen as more urgent than own personal needs for quality time. Any yes person understands that trying to help others mostly in crises after waiting too long drains the mind and sometimes too late to seek help. During such times can feel obliged to jump in at deep end to rescue others until one has a burn out.01_Silent_signs_seasonal_depression_disorder_SAD_good_zzs_yanyong Realise doing so for years means hardly any time left to meet personal needs. Its really SAD that awoke me to change my lifestyle to be able to stay healthy to overcome SAD moments consistently. I discovered solutions that help deal with SAD by increasing light, strong light is helpful to provide similar effects of the Sunshine light. Special halogen lamp helps body to adapt to mood changes and mood swings as the light and heat combined transforms the brain. It is important to open the curtains to get Sunlight and fresh air. To wear a winter clothing suitable for the weather rather than about fashion and image. It is necessary to wear good soled shoes with foot warmer insoles to protect the feet from cold affecting brains neurons connected to the feet. A warm feet and hands, face equals good moods so cover up well in winter clothing. Although the Sun seems bright it is not really hot as in the summer months. If indoors and getting up to dress for the outdoors remember indoor room temperature is warmer so do not dress by indoor warm temperatures. Carry a spare clothings for any unpredictable changes in the weather to be safe than sorry. Be aware of the fabrics best for winter clothing and wear them earlier in Autumn than wait for coldest winter. This changed my life as body preserves summer heat throughout into winter not waiting for freezing cold months to put on warm clothes. My body and feet even sweat in winter as if still summer days. I am active in winter again eating healthier hot foods to keep my body temperature up. I ensure my sleep improves by time routine structure. My sleep pattern gets better by a set room conditions adapted to let body wind down to sleep better. insomnia2-1038x576If not mind becomes fogged by lack of sleep, red eyes, inability to focus. Extra effort is required make changes to get better results, rest, rest, rest from exhaustion, tiredness, fatigue, stress, pressure, noise pollution, fuels SAD. Distract yourself by playing crosswords, puzzles to improve brain muscles. If not on any emergency standby call of duty it is wise to switch phone off at night. Tell all people to call you only at certain times unless it is an urgent call, cut down the online time to give your brain rest. If the work entails online duties cut down on the personal browsing for “fun” as mind overworked does not get rest to replenish brain cells and the tissues vital for your well-being. Resist urge to stay sloppy, unkempt unwashed, not getting out of bed with the curtains drawn in your comfort zone. Even if cannot afford hot bath daily, top and tail and change clothes. Do not let yourself drift into an oblivion by pity party feeling sorry for yourself. Invite people over to force you to make effort to do something, ask for help, maintain your home and ask any friends to bring meals to share. Bake or buy good meals to share, charities are serving food and food banks are helping help yourself. So important not to let life overwhelm you. A good friend surprised the depressed friend with this homemade cake though not valentine day to cheer friend up. IMG_20170701_214235340

Do not be so private or proud to isolate yourself and hide because you do not feel good, it only gets worse until some cannot leave the house for years. Go out frequently and spend quality time at home to rest. Its these combinations of outdoors and indoors that helps you to get better. Volunteer, if you have no job at the moment, offer to help neighbours to run errands for them, etc and get joy of building others up its a great healer of mood swings. As you step outside self to focus on others you bring joy to them and yourself. In turn, no more isolated, so belong to a choir, music group other community support project help change moods. Take good quality vitamins to boost body’s energy level performance in winter months especially. Rest is very important to continue feeling better and emotionally stronger. Tell your friends and family about these changes asking them to help you keep up with the new plans you put in place. Exercise helps and keeping healthy friends to support you maintain changes is wonderful. You may help some improve their mood too. In extreme cases of clinically depressed people, doctors help with medication to lift the moods. So do not tough it out by yourself alone, seek help as I did years ago to share the results with you. If you have underlying deep-rooted causes of depression talking therapy or cognitive behaviour therapy required depending on issues dealt with. Remember to give place to God in Christ in life as it makes life easier to bear assured of eternal life.today-is-the-right-timeAs the weather is here to stay you must prepare to be able to function without blaming the weather. In fact changes in the weather is essential for carbon cycle regeneration so work with the weather not against it. “Every year I tell myself this is the last winter I can do in the UK,” says Cal Strode, 25, who lives in London and has seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a condition can bring on low moods and depression during autumn and winter. “It’s already starting to look darker and colder, and is when I tend to feel low and lack energy.” SAD affects about one in 15 people in UK between the months of September and April, according to the NHS. For more serious sufferers, it can prevent people from functioning normally during the autumn and winter months and is thought to be caused by lack of light, as well as other factors such as colder temperatures and the return to normal routines. Anxiety UK, a mental health charity, also says it expects to receive more calls to its helpline in September saying far fewer people contact the charity about anxiety and depression when the sun is shining.

‘My mood dropped’

Cal, who works for the Mental Health Foundation charity, was diagnosed with SAD six years ago when he was studying abroad in the US. “I was in San Diego and went home for Christmas, when suddenly my mood dropped and it felt like I had no energy to do anything,” he says. “It was supposed to be a happy time with my family and celebrations but I was staying in bed until the late afternoon.” With SAD, the lack of light is thought to affect the part of the brain that rules sleep and energy levels. As September looms, Cal plans to spend 45 minutes a day next to a light box to alleviate his symptoms, but admits finding the time can be uphill struggle. “Even on the way to work this week I thought this is such a beautiful day and my mood was so uplifted by it,” he says.A lunch on a pile of notepads, back to school

Back to school

Even for people without the disorder, September can be a difficult time as school starts and workplaces get busier. Added to this, the weather worsens, days get shorter, and it is a long wait until the next bank holiday over Christmas. “We see it every year; summer really does impact people’s moods,” says Nicky Lidbetter, chief executive of Anxiety UK. “People feel more resilient and able to cope when the sun is shining,” says Ms Lidbetter. “Summer is a time when it’s a more relaxed atmosphere in general, there is less traffic on the roads, it’s not as structured.” Autumn can leave us “pining that summer is gone”, she says, especially if any grand plans failed to materialise. “Even if we left school a long time ago, September feels like a time to be more serious and that can instil a sense of anxiety,” she says. But it is not all bad psychologists say we thrive on routine since it brings about structure and offers us a chance to be around people. “After a period of relaxation there’s the stress of a new academic year, or work getting busy, but also healthy routines and habits,” says Dr Sherylin Thompson, a counselling psychologist. “It can be worse if you’re feeling stuck in the routine, and haven’t got a choice, but it can be a chance to change things.” She suggests preparing for September by picking a new challenge or vowing not to give up on a hobby or activity you did during summer. “Keep up health habits, keep up socialising that would usually revive you in good company,” she says. Clinical psychologist Dr Camilla Rosan from Mental Health Foundation adds: “Over the summer people go on lots of holidays and they aren’t always around, now’s an opportunity to see friends.” She recommends planning days in advance, including going to the gym and seeing people. “When the days are shorter, it is important to make a clear routine about when we’re going to fit in exercise, get to the gym, see our friends,” she says. “The weather and light might be stopping us from going outdoors, but stuck at home when it’s dark and dismal into opportunity.” Cal makes an effort to eat well and avoid comfort food during the autumn and winter months. “Some days I don’t feel like I have the energy to cook, and you can crave fast foods high in fat and carbohydrates,” he says. “I’ll try to spend time over the weekends making something like a big bean stew that will last throughout week it is not sunshine but it helps.” Recognise features of this condition affects extreme behaviours or perfectionist tendencies from childhood so deal with the root causes of anxiety. Woman in a forest with autumnal treesListen to advise from the therapist to clarify thoughts in yout head. Not eating properly means losing weight which is very low for any healthy size suitable for you. Do not be angry if people say you are thin and be offended. Check if daily performances gets worse and worse and more more isolated to a point you identify not ok and not yourself anymore to completely lose yourself. Admitting issues helps to solves problems before it gets worse. Do not hide away and refuse to see anybody and stay in the bedroom thinking people are ashamed of you. Even in the depths of struggles set life goals to qualify and achieve a better you. Do not spent years trying to avoid to speaking anyone or be fluctuating in thought so not happy in yourself. Get a therapist at any point and start working through older issues that you may not realise exist affecting you. Deeper issues will be unravelled so things you never knew existed in your head to overcome anxiety depression. Clear your head and do not be forever angry and bitter, hot tempered, easily offended, narcissistic control freak, highstrung, uptight and explosive, raging inconsiderate temper tantrums, hysterical negative temperament anxiously living in fear and confused in thought. Do not be hyper alert feeling like being judged, on trial, scrutinized etc even fof helpful advise and support that enhances your welbeing. It is important not to project hurts or pain to those around because you blame all except yourself for all problems. Set long term and short life goals to achieve, be committed, disciplined, firm, filled with confidence. Understand the fickleness of human relationship require personal selfcontrol and tolerance. Search the meaning of your life to understand life on deeper level. Enjoy life, stay humble, encourage yourself in the Lord like King David did in his most formative years whether a young man or woman or adult. Remember, that the most permanent influences shaping your worldview is priceless quality time growing up in family. Do not become paranoid, shattered in the maelstrom of vengeful anger. Do not humiliate those who care or help you be strong when criticised. It is good to learn to survive on wits to develop emotional toughness not victim mentality but independence of thought. Reflect on ability to listen to other points of view without necessarily bowing to all of them. Learn to enjoy errors pointed out but not swayed too much by that. God corrects those HE LOVES so stand corrected and do not be obsessive about being always right. Just because so-and-so says something does not start weighing cost and benefit to lose appetite over it. Give in to good helpful advise to build you up. The Bible says give advise to a wise person and they thank you and become wiser. Give advise to a fool and he will hate you so choose your words carefully knowing when to apply golden rule in life at all times show kindness to even those who misunderstand your motives because you do things unto the LORD.

A DEVOTED DAD SAVES SON

A father’s love and devotion for his son paid off extending to daring rummage to save lives against all odds brought tears to my eyes this morning as a good read for all to learn a life lesson. God is Faithful in most critical moments when all hope is lost Jesus delivers children as the best piece of article encouraging parents to be there for their children in time of need. In the country of Armenia in 1988, Samuel and Danielle sent their young son Armand to school. Samuel squatted before his son and looked him in the eye. “Have a good day at school, and remember, no matter what, I’ll always be there for you.” They hugged and the boy ran off to school. Hours later, a powerful earthquake rocked the area. In the midst of the pandemonium, Samuel and Danielle tried to discover what happened to their son but they couldn’t get any information. The radio announced that there were thousands of casualties. Samuel then grabbed his coat and headed for the schoolyard. When he reached the area, what he saw brought tears to his eyes. Armand’s school was a pile of debris. And parents were standing around crying. Samuel found place where Armand’s classroom used to be and began pulling a broken beam off the pile of rubble. He grabbed a rock and put it to the side, grabbed another. One of the parents looking on asked, “What are you doing?” “Digging for my son,” Samuel answered. The man then said, “You’re just going to make things worse! The building is unstable,” and tried to pull Samuel away from his work. Samuel just kept working. TERREMOTO DE ARMENIA- 7-12-1988Time wore on, one by one other parents left. Then a worker tried to pull Samuel away from the rubble. Samuel looked at him and said, “Won’t you help me?” The worker left and Samuel kept digging. All through the night and into the next day, Samuel continued digging. The parents placed flowers and pictures of their children on the ruins. But, Samuel just kept working. He picked up a beam and pushed it out of the way then heard a faint cry. “Help! Help!” Samuel listened but didn’t hear anything again. Then he heard a muffled voice, “Papa?” Samuel began to dig furiously. Finally he could see his son. “Come on out, son!” he said with relief. “No,” Armand said. “Let the other kids come out first, I know you’ll get me.” Child after child emerged until, finally, little Armand appeared. Samuel took him in his arms and Armand said, “I told the kids not to worry because you told me that you’d always be there for me!” Fourteen children were saved that day because one father was faithful. So faithful is God Almighty to us! Whether trapped by fallen debris or ensnared by life’s hardships and struggles, we are never cut off from God’s faithfulness. HE is true to His character, reliable and trustworthy and always counted on. So keep trusting God to the end, read the Bible and encourage someone. Matthew 18:1-4 says, the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like a child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. A child literally believes what is told so expects exact performance of promises. In this case the child knew his was there for him so reassures his friends that his will surely come for them. That promise kept their hope alive and kept them to hold on until they were rescued. In the same way, adults must trust God believe in Jesus so have faith in God who Keeps His Promises so cannot fail. maxresdefaultHindrances like earthquakes against people try to distract and stop God’s blessings but God defeats the opposer the devil. This is why it important to understand how the attacks of the devil tries to sabotage blessings and miracles from God. Earthquakes often as natural phenomenon process of changes in the tectonic plates of earth cause damage. So issue is man-made structure concrete not properly reinforced by shoddy work of construction. A loving human father defied concrete blocks to seek his son buried in the ruins. That bonding trust between father and son assured both it is well even in adversity. It pays off to allow a father to be part of a child’s life to interact playfully and to involved in disciplining children. Get on the floor to play with your children as playing with them does not diminish you as a parent. You enter their world and let your hair down for at least 1 hour everyday set a time aside in your diary, tell partners at work in board meetings unavailable to attend some projects. Remember they have only one childhood so embrace the precious years to create good memories for the future. Negotiate into contracts value of quality time with your family. A good ethical company provides for the children of their staff, time off for school runs, distance and location of job near as much as possible for couples to raise their children. Job markets cannot force people to abandon family unless a dangerously risky job so unsuitable that can children at risk. Many accomplish and achieve great things in the world so renowned but emotionally lost children. Human value is more precious and also more priceless than all material assets so do not be embarrassed to play with your children. IMG-20170818-WA0000Help children set up toys, play football, play basketball, tennis, go walking, run, swim with them to get fit yourself. The parent connected emotionally with the children gain financial security and also automatically takes care of emotional stability at a deeper level relationship. A child depleted from parental attention craves attention in the wrong places. A family bonding lasts into future years so ensure attachment making the children avoid vulnerable online predators. The child connected to parents will share an onset secret safely trusting parents to help them stop any ongoing threats of bullying and building their confidence. Expensive items provided in life is good enough but does not always meet their emotional needs. If bread winner, the house husband father can partake in the story reading too. It can be hard for mothers bearing children to let go for a father to join in to take over childcare duties and prefer the father to mother. Always treasure and loves enjoying the moments at the end of day by curling up with children to read bedtime story, to feel chaos of the day often slowly slip away. One night recently as snuggled up to a middle son Zevi, six with a copy of Charlie and Chocolate Factory in hand, a mother was told ‘wants Daddy today,’ sentiment again echoed by four-year-old daughter, Zeabella and son Rafael, who’s nine. A BBC newsreader reading for a living, said it was insulting enough to be elbowed out of responsibility that husband Phil too usually shared. IMG3297_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqzoK5uT2wTvu30RJXoHqq-ZAXHT4Ea86dTrIQm8CiHy8What really struck core was they all wanted Daddy to put them to bed, too. While on one hand high-fiving myself for being granted early dismissal from parenting duties, deep down felt hurt. This came days after holidays during which preferring Daddy became the recurring theme. It began in the taxi to the airport with three shouts of, ‘I want to sit next to Daddy.’ Then in departure lounge it was, ‘Daddy, sit next to me.’ Boarding the plane, they were pushing each other out of the way to grab the seat next to Phil, and for much of the week it was, ‘Daddy, hold my hand,’ and, ‘Daddy, swim with me.’ As they clambered all over him in the pool it began to really niggle. Spending time with him is more of a novelty working shifts allows me to be far more present but the sound of them shrieking and giggling started to grate. Why didn’t they want me? I had to bite my lip not to blurt out, ‘Without me you wouldn’t be on this holiday! Without me you wouldn’t have sun cream, goggles, books, iPads, clothes, sandals. Without me you might not even eat.’ Well, not the right meal at the right time of day, anyway. Perhaps, thats part of the problem as issuer of orders, the keeper of the diary, organiser, the taxi service familiarity breeds contempt for mother not fun like the nursery school. Mother has no time to mess about with them at bedtime or play games or just hang out. And become the consolation prize, the parent a child reluctantly sits next to if that is the only option left. It feels petty to be upsetting so mentioned it to Phil who certainly thought its oversensitive although admits can see it’s there. So try to shrug it off. After all the years telling kids not to be jealous of each other and constantly on the lookout for who gets more treats, time, attention or love than the others. The two boys often accused favouring of youngest child and only girl. Recently, Rafael asked why always talks to girl in a softer voice, ‘because you’re nine and she’s four as previously done. So now makes conscious effort to speak to them all in the same tone. In some ways blame father for if the child prefers him. Endless opportunities to gain affection by allowing more time on the iPad, more lenient bedtimes, sweets but never be short-sighted in parenting skills for the sake of earning popularity points. And do not create competition in marriage based on jealousy for love of your children either by father, family or grandparents.

In some ways I do not even blame them for preferring him he is always ready with a joke and more patience than the mother. So, may feel little pang of envy now and then focus more on the times children want and need mother often if feeling physically or emotionally hurt so make the most of freetime. If in summer holidays they fight over Dad then enjoy relaxing with headphones on and read your favourite books. Do not restrict or intimidate child to cut off a relationship with mother because you feel jealous. It is essential on other hand some dad’s struggle to bond and interact with their children like the father shared online in true story. Terrence Mentor a blogger who goes by screen name AfroDaddy,   recently publicly opens up on personal struggles of being dad and relationship with his younger son, who seems to be indifferent towards him.

AfroDaddy hopes by sharing his story other parents all over the world will understand they do not need to keep beating themselves up but should be open and honest to themselves and their partners. Their first son was adopted so it was easier for him and his wife to take turns to feed and care for the child. This made it easy for him to have a bond with his adopted child and AfroDaddy said however, his second son was a lot different. Upon birth, his second son already had an intrinsic connection with his mom. That bond outlasted his newborn stage and continued on until he was a toddler. That made it difficult for him. On his facebook page, he wrote that “It is quite a thing to be a dad who can’t comfort his child, who is constantly told ‘No, I go to mommy,’ who never seems to have a real, relational moment with his son.” He also admitted that he was jealous and admitted that it was a bit childish. I know its silly and childish but jealousy was real and disheartening Mentor said. AfroDaddy said all that changed when his younger son started warming up to him. He said over the past few months, his younger son would tend to choose him over his wife, which made him somehow feel happy. “This child, who would cry when I so much as looked his way, came to me for comfort and calm. Not going to lie I got a little teary eyed,” Mentor said.dad

According to an expert family therapist, Leslie Seppinni: “it’s not automatic that you’re going to bond with your child. Usually it does take a little while.”You see some men do not understand the sacrifice and self denial involved carrying pregnancy 9 months, going through labour worst pain on earth, in pain breastfeeding after birth, the body bloated, and the man is envious and jealous of children being nurtured as their parents did for them. They put all their anger, bitterness, frustrations on for ” ruining ” their happiness. So put anger on innocent children by breaking their toys in front of them, bashing wall knocking holes in walls, kicking the dog, thrashing premises in temper tantrums. The children copy such behaviours for some men do not understand sacrifice, selfdenial so envious jealous of children put their anger, bitterness, frustrations on children so accusing them of ruining their happiness. Mother wisely told me just because man claims to love woman does not mean he includes the children. Some neglect the children because they lacked the natural automatic soul bond that ties a child to parents. Preoccupied with envy and jealousy of their children seeth with hatred, venom vitriol instead of giving them real lve and attention child deserves from them. Quite frankly some are tall children themselves so not really have a frontal cortex so not fully understanding parenthood. The stories remind us of God’s LOVE, Favour upon our lives in Jesus Name by forgiving us as a LOVING father when even unable to appreciate God’s Love for mankind. And most women need courage to leave the child in a safe father’s good hands. Get a support, help needed, required training humbly than trying in vain to change a partner. Do not get me wrong billions of great and wonderful fathers and responsible are men out there yet it is the stupid ones that rock my feathers.dad

At the same time as transition happens and the father eventually bonds with a child, the mother now feels rejected and abandoned after doing all the hardwork alone. These stories reveal the modern trends of lack of daily extended family support putting burden on the couples to raise children alone most of the time. A mother can feel jealous too if a child prefers the father over mother at times. Children grow up very fast and move on with their lives. So create the precious memories for the moment to recall their childhood of good times. At the end of a it all, the couple have to live with each other when the children flow the nest. Continue to build up own relationship first and teach the children to respect both parents. Team work betwern the couple establishes firm rules, discipline and work ethics children trained apply in their own lives and marriages later. Parents must understand sacrifices and be mature to be there for the children emotionally instead of treating them as opponents in a competition. Often many children hurt, suffer or lost lives due to a parent’s immature jealousy behaviour and actions impacting their lives into adulthood. Some cultures with extended family support daily have clear roles of childcare rules so this issues may seem strange to them to read about. However, these real life issues exist and children must be taught from early years love for family, tolerance and the understanding of relationship roles, needs of babies and todflers, expectant mothers moods, supporting each other, helping around the home by every member of family, healthy eating, sound sleep, work, rest ethics and family principles, discipline, interaction and socialising skills in the community.  Where both parents have extreme upbringing viewpoints there is need to create hybrid middle ground of compromise for their peace of mind and understanding. No perfect family exists on earth, do the best you can and leave the ‘rest’ of family in the HANDS of God.
