Inspiration & Hope / let us say GOODBYE
« on: December 01, 2017, 09:27:04 PM »
There are many things in life that we have to learn to accept, regardless of whether we like them or not. These include our flaws, regrets and mistakes. As the year draws to a close, I’d like to come to terms with the things I find difficult to accept so that I can let go of them before the New Year sets in. You should do the same – free yourself from the things that are keeping you stuck in the past. I’m sure that you can relate to the following affirmations:

Inspiration & Hope / The Best Wish
« on: November 24, 2017, 08:32:25 AM »
Two angels in heaven were arguing about the souls on earth. One, a pessimist, felt that all souls were selfish and unworthy of redemption. The other, an optimist felt that they were good and kind. After much arguing, the two made a bet. The angel who felt people were selfish bet that the optimist couldn't find three good, kind people in three days.

 
Disguising himself as a beggar, the optimist came down to earth wandering from town to town. He came to a small village where he heard of three brothers whose parents had died and left the boys a farm outside of town, which had a pear tree. The fruit from this tree fed them and also brought a good price in the market. The angel, arrived at their home and asked the eldest brother if he could spare some fruit for a hungry man.


The next morning, the angel appeared at their house, this time as a wealthy merchant. The brothers were amazed at the man standing at their door. The stranger asked them to take a walk through the countryside with him. He promised the boys that their fields and pear tree would be well cared for while they were away.

While on their walk, the angel asked the eldest brother to make his best wish. The young man pointed to the sun-filled meadow and he wished it were a vineyard and that he had a winery and many servants who called him master.
The angel tapped his staff and vines with grapes filled the valley. As the young man walked toward his new life, the angel called out "Remember God's poor people."

He then took the two remaining brothers to an open pasture filled with blackbirds. He asked the middle brother to make a wish. The boy wished that the birds were sheep. He wished he had a mill in the valley and was a wealthy wool merchant with many servants. Upon tapping his staff, the middle brother received all that he wished for. As the middle brother walked toward his new life, the angel called out "Remember God's poor."



The angel then took the last brother to the top of a mountain, filled with valleys, oceans and forests. He asked the young boy to make his best wish. The young man looked around and then turned to the angel, humbly asking him for someone to love me for who I am.

The angel, stunned, told the boy that this is a rare wish. The angel had to refer to his book to see what he could do, to which he then answered: "There are only three women in the world who could love you for who you are. Two are married. We'd better hurry to the third."

The pair then arrived at the court of a king whose daughter was set to be wed shortly. "Your majesty, I have brought a suitor for your daughter," the angel said.

The king, stunned, replied: "Another? I have a king, two princes and a sultan in the next room. How can I pick the right man?"

"Your majesty, I have a solution. In your garden you have five olive trees. Cut a branch from each one and plant them in a row. On each branch, tie the name of one suitor. Tomorrow, the branch that bears fruit will also bear the name you seek."



The king was happy with this idea. Upon inspecting the branches the next morning, he saw that 4 of the 5 branches were dried and withered, but the branch with the young farmer's name was alive and bore fruit. The farmer was rejoiced and the princess and he were married soon after. The angel took them away to a small cottage at the edge of the woods and told them both: "Remember God's poor."

One year later the angel decided to see how the three brothers were doing. Disguising himself as a beggar the angel visited the oldest brother's vineyards. He knocked on the door and said: "Please sir, a taste of wine for a thirsty man."

"Away with you, " the brother shouted "or I'll set my dogs on you if you don't leave at once."

The angel tapped his staff and all of the man's vineyards disappeared. "Go back to your pear tree," the angel said. "You forgot God's poor!"

Next the angel knocked at the wool merchant's mill. "Please sir, a scrap of cloth to warm my cold shoulders."

"Away with you!" shouted the brother. "I'll set my dogs on you if you don't leave at once."

The angel tapped his staff and all of the man's mill disappeared. "Go back to your pear tree. You forgot God's poor."

Finally, the angel walked up the path to the little cottage at the edge of the woods and knocked on the door. "Please sir, do you have some bread for a hungry man?"





The young man replied: "We don't have much, but what we have is yours."

The young couple offered bread and soup to the old man. They then proceeded to offer him some water, apologizing that they had nothing better to offer him. But as they poured a glass for the angel, sweet wine flowed.

The angel took the young couple by the hand and led them to the top of a hill overlooking rows of pear trees and a beautiful house.
"This is for you and your children," the angel said, "Because you remembered God's poor."

Weird and Extreme / HURRICANE IRMA
« on: September 05, 2017, 09:10:10 AM »
EXTREME na ni kay maigo naman si balskie. :( :( :( :(

naka likay si balskie sa HARVEY pero kini si IRMA wa na juy likay, hilig man gud si balskie boy ug chicks. west coast man ang gi igo sa harvey. karon west coast nay gi tirada ni irma.

A Category 4 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale means sustained winds of 130-156 miles per hour (209-251 kph) with "catastrophic" outcomes, including uprooted trees and downed power lines, water and electricity outages, and significant property damage causing uninhabitable conditions, according to the Miami-based hurricane center.

Irma, now packing 130 mph (215 kph) winds, also threatens Florida and the U.S. East Coast, said the NHC, which cautioned that it was still too early to forecast the storm's exact path or what effects it might have on the continental United States.

"There is an increasing chance of seeing some impacts from Irma in the Florida Peninsula and the Florida Keys later this week and this weekend. In addition, rough surf and dangerous marine conditions will begin to affect the southeastern U.S. coast by later this week," the center said.

Irma will be the second powerful hurricane to thrash the United States and its territories in as many weeks.

INFOGRAPHIC: The life story of Bill Gates

Today, we know Bill Gates for his philanthropy and a massive $84.9 billion fortune.

However, fewer people remember his younger days. From hacking early computers at the age of 13 to his love-hate relationship with Steve Jobs, here is how Gates went from childhood nerd to a multi-billionaire.

The Bill Gates story
Today’s infographic is from Adioma, and it visualizes the career of Bill Gates from his earliest days until his latest philanthropy efforts.

 visual 1 Adioma via Visual Capitalist

The story of Bill Gates is loaded with examples of hard work, controversy, money, bravado, and even accusations of betrayal.

Key moments
Here is the lowdown on some of the key moments of his life so far.


Love-hate relationships
Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are a classic example of “frenemies”. At times they were friends, and at other times they were fierce rivals that said some pretty nasty things.

One of the most memorable moments? In 1997, Microsoft invested money in Apple to keep the struggling company afloat. Gates appeared on the screen during Jobs’ keynote talk at the MacWorld conference, and the audience booed.

See a great summary of the key moments of the complex Gates-Jobs relationship here.

The Microsoft antitrust case
Initiated in 1998, Microsoft was accused of becoming a monopoly and engaging in anti-competitive practices by the U.S. government and 20 states.

The ruling from 2000 called for a split of Microsoft, creating two separate companies. One half would house the Windows operating system, and the second half would produce other software. However, Microsoft appealed – and in the end, it didn’t really matter, as other companies like Apple started to eat away at Windows’ market share anyways.

Becomes richest man
At age 31, Gates took the title of the world’s youngest billionaire – and at 39, he became the world’s richest person with a fortune of $12.9 billion.

Today, of course, that fortune sits closer to $84.9 billion.

Launches “The Giving Pledge”
In 2010, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett announced “The Giving Pledge”, a campaign to get billionaires to contribute the majority of their wealth to philanthropic causes. Today, there are 158 signers to the pledge, with pledges totaling $365 billion.
