DOES LOOKS AFFECT JOBS?

hqdefaultDoes looks affect jobs and will your face land you a dream job? Some measure expected standard face as a potential employer to decide whose face best fits the job. This new trend selects mostly females based on their looks or shape of their faces. Some companies go as far as asking for pictures in advance and then measuring faces with tape during their interviews for their required face. This matter is becoming an issue of concern as some do not hear from the employer again after their receiving photos. This way of employing staff members was again in the news. BLcsr71CAAEkR4ySo is this another stereotypical selection method of the beauty considered fit for a workplace? This method is based on facial profiling by face reader’s opinions who claim to predict suitable jobs for specific faces. They are consulted to analyse faces to determine the best face for each job. Is this another underhand tactics and an excuse to discriminate against certain faces? It is possible to send own air brushed picture to look impressive often people send a younger photo than their current looks. 364309F600000578-3689902-image-a-3_1468489483342Are companies being influenced by the modern concepts of what constitutes good looks online in the media as true standard beauty? What about ‘Ugly Betty’ chosen to help her boss from getting distracted by his beautiful secretaries to focus on managing his company. What happens if a company is catfished as happens often in many cases including Sarah who got a job from a university based on her photo of previous youthful years. The university appointed her and on arrival for work turned out to be confronted by an old lady three times her age. Sarah did not indicate her current age to them so it was assumed she looked like the photo sent. At first, the university thought it was a mix up until she confirmed her identity and she enough she was the same person. She was allowed to do the job based on her excellent and genuine track record on her CV qualifications and work history. Sarah although het looks did not affect her job turned out to be a nightmare. Sarah told university zoology director, she must live literary with all the animals in her home. ae840eace1a73d45b1ba4ac9d0668f97Therefore Sarah turned posh university accommodation into animal husbandry for her practical research. Her teaching produced great students so made up for lack of her youthful look Was tolerated to live among her beloved animals till she died unexpectedly. Sarah carried on dutifully for many years but became a victim of her own success. One of the animals bit her while taking him to a vet in her vehicle became infected by rhesus as he carried that disease. IMG_20170720_194117 Sarah dedicated her phenomenal long life collaborating with the university for many years. The university afterwards took the animals to the appropriate zoo set aside for all other animals. Then the house was refurbished and restored for new person employed to fill her place. Sarah was a great character and loyal to her beloved animals and carried on with her zoologist passion to a whole new level. Her presence at university was well-known so she was popular and well loved, one of a kind in that gated community. Her research papers, work was immaculate in both classroom and outside winning many awards. Sarah’s looks and age did not hinder or affect her work in at all. So if the university had based the choice on only superficial or aesthetic looks to reject application, they would have missed out on her skills, talents and practical abilities for many years, as an impressive scientist. So do looks really help in choosing the most competent staff members? Sarah’s job technically did not have age limits in those days so she was able to do her work perfectly well. Sarah did what she loved most so died doing her job carried on faithfully to the end. So is it fair and ethically moral to demand specific looks to determine certain jobs?

WOMEN & MEN FRIENDSHIPS

1033.gifWomen have intense close friendships, men tend not to have that according to Professor Dunbar, the Psychologist Professor at Oxford University. Professor Dunbar found women view best friend relationships in between sisters and soul mates. Men tend to see theirs purely in terms of the convenience. He came to this conclusion by exploring how people’s friendship circles changed when they left school for university. So what determined original friendships or whether they survived long-term? Did women make effort to talk more to each other on the phone as explored? And did “talking have any absolute effects on mens’ relationships at all? For men it was doing stuff together that held close friendships together. Doing activities like going to a football match or the pub for a drink, playing five a side was more meaningful to men. They made effort if was such an activity.” He looked at the differences between the sexes and said women clearly have much more intense close friendships than men. Men tend not to have that sort of relationship but they tend to have a group of four men they do such stuff with. So relationship is much more casual. With men it is out of sight out of mind. They just find four more guys to go drinking with.”The cast of Channel 4's university-themed sitcom Fresh Meat The cast of Channel 4’s university-themed sitcom Fresh Meat. This will be familiar to any woman who has had both the pleasure and disappointment of close male friend particularly in their twenties and thirties. At first, things are wonderful. Life is full of great catch ups, and laughter over pints of beer. They listen to your woes and you help them with their woman problems. It is the friendship neither knew needed. Only then, something changes. They start a new relationship. They move to a new postcode really not very far. They get a new job with a ready-made social life. They get a new flatmate. Whatever the change they suddenly have the new set of replacement ready and can’t seem to find the time to meet you for that coffee. You, naively, keep trying. You call them, you send jokey pictures and do exactly what you will do if that was a girlfriend growing distant: bombard her with the attention you wish she was showing you. Except with a male friend, it just does not work. Whether it is nature or nurture, most men simply do not view friendships in the same way as women. Gender is hardly the issue it is practical problem of how much time and effort they put into a platonic relationship. As the study says, there’s always another drinking buddy around the corner. Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in Friends with BenefitsJustin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in Friends with Benefits. Men reading this may feel unfairly judged. So I put it to a colleague and current male friend let’s be honest, the second we stop sharing a desk, I will never hear from him again. “Some of my best friends are women,” he says vaguely. When I ask if the effort he made with friends is comparable to that his girlfriend makes with hers, he begrudgingly accepts that he could not spend hours on the phone with his pals of either gender. He lost count of the male friends who have disappeared over the years. Often, it coincides with the arrival of a new girlfriend. But contrary to popular interpretation, it is rarely to do with that new girlfriend’s jealousy. As one former male friend charmingly told me: “I have to hear all my girlfriend’s emotional stresses now. I don’t have time for yours.” With male mates like that it is probably no surprise all efforts go into his female friendships. And now academics backed my choice.tmg-article_default_mobile

Steps To recover friends

  • Stop pre-empting: Sometimes we are anxious when we do not need to be and it creates conflicts with friends in our heads. Your friend may be sitting thinking the same thing; not think anything is wrong.
  • Do not be consumed by guilt: Often you feel guilty or embarrassed you did not make contact for a while. This is what is getting in the way, try not to hold onto these feelings.
  • Face conflicts that arise: If your friendships is worthwhile you should be willing to fix them, ask what has gone wrong, what their position may be to work  solution.
  • Set objectives: Once you have discussed the issues don’t let them drag on, make a decision to move forward and set practical ways of keeping in touch and letting the other know you care.
  • Find positive aspects: Friendship may take on a different form with distance allows space to see things objectively. You may be able to help each other more, to make use of the distance when you can.

LIVE STRESS FREE LIFESTYLE

depositphotos_11424197-stock-photo-stress-free-lifestyleSometimes it feels like the world is growing more dangerous and stressful by the day. Turn on the TV, and you’re bombarded with the latest terror attack, the latest crime in your county, the latest danger to hang, wordlessly, over your head. And, no matter what the ads tell you, the solution isn’t a fad product like the fidget spinner. And it’s not helped out by competing with or even beating the Jones’ down the street. In fact, we’ve invented new problems and worries for ourselves it is easy to forget your life will be just fine without the latest and greatest gadget.

Use Natural Remedies for Stress

Anxiety disorders is a common mental issue, affecting 18% of the population. Feeling anxious and stressed out does not require a clinical diagnosis. Indeed, many people try to tough it out without seeking professional help or revealing their high stress levels to those closest to them. But it is important to know that if left unchecked stress is among leading contributors to illness. It increases the odds of heart disease, stroke, cancer the common cold, since stress affects down your immune system. Simply put the body’s response to stress does more harm than good, in the modern world a world where the greatest stressors aren’t physical. It worked wonderfully when we had to dodge saber-tooth tigers. It does a much poorer job when we’re concerned about bills or our kids’ futures. Stress is meant to give your body a quick shot of adrenaline, to resolve a short-term threat like being attacked by a predator.stress-free-zone-sign

When stress is long-term low level but constant the hormones associated with stress like cortisol does damage to your body. Among other things, prematurely age cardiovascular system constantly elevating your blood pressure. And of course eliminating stress entirely would be ideal but that is impossible. The next best thing is to, at least, give your body a vacation from stress a few times a day. Even relaxing for a half-hour every day is an important chance for your body to reset. That why I want to give you seven all-natural, super-healthy ways to relax. You do not have to try a different one each day in fact, some you probably want to make part of a daily routine. So
you definitely want as much relaxation you can this week and every week after.IMG_20170703_140735

Natural Stress Relief: Walking

Natural Stress Relief: Breathing

We all know, when you feel yourself getting upset, you should take a breath and count to ten. Counting gives your mind time to cool off. But it’s really the breath that does heavy lifting. There is, perhaps, nothing more peaceful than mindful breathing that is, breathing with awareness, and with purpose. Try it you will see. Within moments, your focus on mindful breathing will melt away stressful thoughts and feelings. Now, plenty of people are attached to their old habits of thought, so they’ll wind up selecting stress over mindful breathing. That’s ok. It takes practice. You might think that breathing is the most natural thing in the world (it is), but paying attention to that breath—that takes attention! Attention is like oxygen for stress. Devote it elsewhere, and you’ll wind up much more relaxed, without even trying to be.

Good Stress Relief: Gym 

6280ff09cbcf8c6fd3a4e7d1a8039e4a7ff93d23

When you read as many medical studies you notice a particular pattern emerge. Every time there’s some new miracle cure or miracle drug, the proof of how good it is usually sounds something like “It’s almost as effective as exercise!” We know the greatest natural cure in the world is one that beats nine out of ten drugs in nine out of ten situations and that is regular exercise. While exercise is great for most problems, it is even better for stress. Because there’s no better way to work out stress than to sweat it out. Much like with breathing, good exercise demands your attention. But unlike breathing, it also works out all the kinks and blockages in your body. There is a reason the freshest you can ever feel is right after exercise and a shower helps clean your body out better. Nothing eliminates toxins faster nothing gives faster rush of endorphins the happy hormone. Exercise doesn’t have to mean sprinting or Olympic deadlifts. Go for a walk, bike ride or some stretches. Whatever you can do to get your blood flowing and break a little sweat with help do the trick.IMG_20170703_141446

Natural Relief: Tune Out

We’re constantly bombarded by bad news, throughout the day. Generations ago, folks worried that easy to access to the news would alter your view of reality. And that was just with the introduction of TV. Now that you have a computer in your pocket, buzzing with information every few minutes, demanding your attention, the problem has gotten much worse. And it can create a downward spiral. For instance, some people like to turn to social media for relaxation. But now, Facebook and Twitter are some of the biggest sources of stress-inducing news! The simple truth is, while it’s good to be a well-informed citizen, we’ve taken it too far. If you want to keep up with all the information being thrown your way, you’d have to quit your job and cut back on your sleep. It’s impossible and it’s unnecessary. And it’s creating plenty of stress from the news itself, and also from the pressure people feel to keep up. Let it go. Give yourself some quiet time each day. Turn off your phone. Keep the TV off, and hide the remote. Tune out barrage of media. Disconnect from the hamster wheel. Start off by giving yourself a half hour unplugged each day. Go for a walk, or pick up a book. Get away from all the screens in your life. Odds are, you’ll immediately notice how much freer you feel or how you haven’t really missed anything. For most people that half hour lengthens and grows until you plug in to perform essentials to avoid the unnecessary.

Walk Barefoot In Nature

Reasons-to-Walk-Daily

Reconnecting to the natural world is one of the fastest paths to relaxation. And there’s no faster way to reconnect than to make physical contact with the natural world, usually through your feet. Think of how good grass feels between your toes, or walk on a sandy beach. We’re increasingly disconnected from nature, and it shows. That’s why a barefoot walk feels like a breath of fresh air, or a swig of natural spring water. Nature feeds your soul as nothing else can. Some researchers also think that walking barefoot grounding has electromagnetic rebalancing effects. All I know is how good it feels, and how effective it is at restoring calm.

Get A Massage

benefits-of-massage

For some people idle mind makes for racing worries. But, because massages are so powerfully relaxing, it’s hard to keep any negative thought string going long. You’re more likely to fall asleep than stress out. And a good massage doesn’t have to be a professional one, either. In fact, being on the giving end is almost as beneficial as being massaged, since so many of the benefits just come from touch. Make massages part of your routine with a professional, a friend or a significant other and feel better every day, not just on special occasions.

Natural Chill Pillswork-life

You don’t need prescription drugs to relieve stress. There are plenty of natural alternatives that work as well, or often better. For instance, GABA -gamma-amino butyric acid is naturally occurring amino acid that serves to cut down on mental chatter. There are a number of supplements that contain GABA. But that’s not the best way to get the positive effects. You see, GABA is made in the brain, but has trouble crossing the blood-brain barrier when ingested. Much better and recommends l-theanine, a precursor to GABA. You should take 100-200 mg, once or twice a day. And since these chemicals occur naturally in your body and in nature green tea contains l-theanine you don’t have to worry about adverse reactions or nasty side effects. These supplements help to quiet unfocused, distracting thoughts nothing more. Make some or all of the natural stress relief strategies a part of your routine. Try them out over time, or dive in all immediately. The important thing is just to combat the stresses of the modern world. You’ll be amazed how far-reaching that little change will be.

CHRISTMAS TRUCE

One of the Greatest events in history took place on Christmas day one 100 years ago. A miracle was done in consideration of the joyful celebration of Jesus birth. People were touched in their hearts to show compassion to each although sworn enemies. This armistice reconciliation happened in history between the British and German soldiers in Belgium and France battlefields in the Western Front in the trenches. Peace was briefly agreed for one day to halt war between enemies fighting on Christmas day during the first world war in 1914. This unusually true story became the subject of discussions surprising concerned families. It seemed a miracle as two groups shooting and bombing each other on previous days decided to celebrate Christmas together. These series of widespread unofficial ceasefires took place along the around Christmas 1914. In the week leading up to the holiday, Germans and British soldiers crossed trenches to exchange seasonal greetings and talk. In areas, men from both sides ventured into neutral land on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to mingle and exchange food and souvenirs. There were joint burial ceremonies, prisoner swaps, several meetings ended in carol-singing.Men played football with one another, giving one of the most enduring images of the truce. However, the peaceful behaviour was not  complete as fighting continued in some sectors. In others areas,  the sides settled on arrangements to recover bodies. The following year, a few units arranged ceasefires, but the truces were not widespread as in 1914. This is interesting because they trusted each other enough to meet together without arms. In addition they had confidence to eat and play football together. The Prince of Prince Christ Jesus touched the hearts and minds of the toughest and most hardened veterans to stop fighting on Christmas day. Among them was James and Otto on 25th December, 1914. These men were courageous enough to take a risk to be in the same vicinity with each other. They saw the human, loving, compassionate side in each other at least for that day. So it possible if man chooses to live in peace with each other. They willingly remembered reality of previous Christmas good times back home among family. With God all things are possible.

The more I reflect on this story the more amazing it seems today. By celebrating Christmas with the enemy this brings word of God to mind that, ‘God sets a table before me in the presence of my enemies.’ Most of the soldiers wrote event in their diaries and sent letters home sharing wonderful experience with family and friends. Others took pictures and sent photographs home showing their friendly match between sworn enemies. They enjoyed and treasures the great moment in history. Many documentaries, adverts and films are made about the Christmas truce. This is precursor to the end of that war eventually but the war continued for another 4 years until 1918 when war ended. This shows men are capable of seeing the good in each other if they choose to do so. So were willing to put up with one another to meet God’s Standard that, a time will come when there will be No More wars in Jesus Name. People will lay down their arms and live together in peace with one another. God said it will be so peaceful that a man will dwell in peace with the lion and the lamb. Unfortunately, it gets worse before it gets better. This means in the near future there be no more wars ever again.However, that ultimate truce will take place after the worst battle in history. This war is going to be the biggest war of wars to finally quench blood thirstiness and revenge. The signs of ultimate war is beginning to rage, on and off, in many parts of the world in different places. New alliances are formed which take sides as the Bible predicts towards second coming of Christ. The Ultimate True Peace will Come Finally after all these wars only through Christ Jesus. It is important to read the Bible, to pray to God in Jesus Name and to watch the Bible unfold in the News. Above all, it is necessary to remember, in spite of wars and rumours of wars there is inner peace and assurance of eternal life. No matter what human beings go through there is hope of eternal everlasting life beyond sufferings of this world. Make sure you have peace with God in life and know your destination before hand by accepting Christ as personal Saviour. There is no more tears, grief or sorrow in Heaven. God comforts people from all nations in perpetual joy, singing dancing in Heaven. As we celebrate without loved ones who passed into Heaven, remember they are at PEACE FOREVER REJOICING in the presence of God, Christ, Holy Spirit, Saints and Angels. They are not in pain any more but restored into youthful looks and very happy. So God cares about all the family members left behind on earth so all one day all will be reunited and the circle will be complete.

HOLY SPIRIT FRUITS

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Galatians 5:22-24, ‘the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.’  These qualities are like orchard as they constitute evident sign of  growth, fruitfulness  multiplication and maturity in faith. God’s first fruit greatest quality love is His only Son Christ sent to save and restore us to God.

Bowl of fruits

Christ is First Fruit given as sacrificial offering first harvest from God’s agricultural produce of harvest of souls. Greater love has no man than Christ Who gave His life as ransom for many by unconditional love. So believers are to bear Christlike spiritual love fruits to impact the kingdom of God.

  

An understanding of Godly love is important because the Holy Spirit helps us to love supernaturally as God’s ultimate expression of love is Christ Jesus. Love is used to depict emotional feelings which change with the time. Godly love is manifested through the gift of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Fruits are grown, mature, ripe, firmly, has many colourful and desirable tastes appealing to be eaten, so does Godly Love attract people to God’s kingdom. 

       

The Bible is written to all the world by God as an incredible love letter that makes us thankful to God. As God loved us so believers love God and give first fruits as the duty and responsibility of a true disciple and loving one another. Agape love is affection for self,  based on God’s command to love and care first, for one self in a healthy way.

  

Godly joy shows through affection with clear boundaries for other more focused and passionate about life.  We develop a compassion in the heart for holiness which permeates things and people. We are joyfully involved in loyal commitments so able to marshal, direct our life wisely for good through Christ crucified.

Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance in a negative way or exhibiting anger. Those who belong to Christ have joy connected to Godly love  joy of the Lord our strength. So walk in perfect peace of God passing human understanding.

  

Kindness is behaviour marked by ethical characteristics, a pleasant disposition, and concern for others. It is known as a virtue and recognized as a value in Christianity. Kindness is generosity in spirit showing consideration for others to help make life easier or bearable. It includes resources and and time set aside on behalf of other in Jesus Name.

  

This state or quality of being good, with moral excellence; virtue and kindly feeling to show kindness; generosity. Such kindness is excellence quality of goodness of workmanship to strengthen others with integrity, honesty, uprightness, probity.  Goodness, morality, virtue refer to qualities of character, conduct so entitles possessor to approval esteem. Goodness isthe simple word for general quality recognized in acceptable behaviour.

Faithfulness is a strict or thorough in the performance of duty by a faithful worker true to one’s word, promises, vows, etc. and steady in allegiance or affection; constant loyalty. God is so faithful to us so sent Christ Jesus to restore us to Himself. Christian believers walk in faithfulness and loyalty to God.

Gentleness is number eight in the list of the fruit of the Holy Spirit also known as meekness or humility. A gentle person gives a soft answer even when provoked or under pressure so not aggressive. The power of the  Holy Spirits help and so teaches us to be gentle. Gentleness is not wellness but wisdom and strength of self -control. 

Selfcontrol is the ability to control one’s emotions, feelings, behaviour, desire, choices, actions, decisions in order to obtain some reward, or avoid consequences by pleasing God and finding Favour with God and people. The right thing is done by faith, grace and  mercy of God through Christ who strengthens us to bear good fruits in Jesus Name.
