“What does Lara Croft do in her spare time?” This burning question has been the cause for many sleepless nights among men and teenage males. “Plan to raid a tomb?” you ask? No. “Polish her guns?” Sorry, Tomb Raider was a family film. However you would be getting warmer if you asked something along the lines of “Does she write her on script and then direct it?” To that question the answer would be yes.
Angelina Jolie makes her directorial debut in the film “In the Land of Blood and Honey.” This film is a love story set in the middle of the Bosnian conflict. Which proves that while being a lady, Jolie still knows what men want, action. The movie plays the story of two parties who were romantically engaged before the start of the Bosnian war, and the conflict that arises therein.
“In the Land of Blood and Honey” does not star Angelina Jolie, however it does star a local cast that was actually involved in the Bosnian conflict. “It’s a heavy film.” Jolie said. The movie was also shot on location in both English and the local language known as BHS. Early screenings of the film have been the cause of much debate within the Bosnian community. Some saying “Too soon Angelina, Too soon.” Others defending Jolie by stating, “Its about time Eastern Europe got some commerce.” But most were just upset by a story that told of a love affair with a woman that was engaged to a soldier who was oppressing her people. Jolie has this to say about the early screenings. “You become very surprised because you think it’s this, and they say it’s definitely a film about that. We tried a few about that, we tried a few. None of them have worked.” “In the Land of Blood and Honey” opens on December 23rd in select theaters.

Corruption in India

...when the system grows weaker and the boat flounders, it gets bolder and drains its victims of the last drops of their blood. The older the system the weaker it grows and fails to solve the riddles of life that grows more complex every day. So men lose faith in it and let it drift down. At this point corruption takes over and plunges the entire society. After Second World War the old system with all its values was left in a shambles. The crippling effects of the war, the recession and depression, and uncertainties in a faithless world of maimed and moribund encouraged cynicism in a section of the population. This section included the government officials dealing in essential commodities. They found the post-war conditions ideal for fishing in troubled waters and jetting richer. They formed a sort of vicious circle in which moral values and honest intentions no longer held valid. The flourishing black market in essential commodities, adulteration of even baby- food, bribery, fraud and economic, political and administrative manipulations with an eye on earning profits has brought untold misery to the people. One would say the corruption in India has an ancient lineage; it is sanctified by tradition. The author of the Arthasastra made some remarks on government officials of his time which are relevant even today: "Just as it is impossible not to taste the honey or the poison that finds itself at the tip of the tongue, so it is impossible for a government servant not to......

Catanduanes: Land of the Howling

...Culture The Land of the Howling... Culture is the totality of people’s lifestyles and life stories. It summarizes one’s place’s history and reflects its civilization. It is an identity. There is no place without culture; there is no society without culture. Without it, there is no existence; no stories to share to future generations. Catanduanes, a small kidney-shaped island in the Pacific, abounds with a conglomeration of folkways and mores which constitute its rich culture. Some of these stories are commendable while others are dishonourable to some extent. Catanduanes has been known as the “Land of the Howling Winds” because of the many strong tropical cyclones that visit it every year and leave it devastated and desolated like a lover forsaken by a beloved. But aside from this epithet affixed to our province which implies its geographical condition and location, are there still other words we can attach to the phrase “Land of the Howling...” which in one way or another will help other people imagine and understand what our province really is? Well, maybe we just need to try. Land of the Howling Pigs and Drunkards Percy Bysshe Shelley in his “Ode to the West Wind” wrote, “O trumpet of the Prophecy, If winter comes, can spring be far behind?’. Cirilo Bautista, that celebrated Filipino poet, wrote in one of his essays, “If summer comes, can teacher seminars be far behind?”.

New Testament Fulfillment Matthew 2:4-6 4 And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. 5 And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, 6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. Mark 1:2-8 2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. 3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. 5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey; 7 And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose. 8 I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

Never Too Late

...will show that he was not of the lineage of Judah. In Numbers 13:6 we see that the Word says that Caleb was chosen from the tribe of Judah. “6 from the tribe of Judah, Caleb the son of Jephunneh;” Why would there be such an apparent contradiction? I would like to point out as we go on from here what I believe to be the reason why. The key to understanding why God favored Caleb can be found in Numbers 14:24 where God said: “But my servant Caleb, because he has a different spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring into the land into which he went, and his descendants shall possess it.” Right in the middle of that verse is several keys we will use to unlock the secret to Caleb’s perseverance and favor. The first key we see is that Caleb is a servant. God told Moses in Numbers 13:2: “From each tribe of their fathers you shall send a man, every one a chief among them.” Caleb was a chief among the tribe of Judah and he was not even a blood linked relative. Somehow I believe that it was because he was faithful. The direct translation of Caleb means dog and many people like to point out that Caleb was like a dog. It speaks volumes to me because I have a dog that is extremely faithful and loyal to us. Would it not serve us to be an example to be faithful to the Lord and to be placed into the tribe of Judah, which means praise? In the New Testament Jesus said in Mark 10:44: “Whoever wants to be great must become a servant.” (The Message) The way up is down. The path......

Conspiracies 9/11

...“Jamestown and triumphs” Julie Atkinson Reconstructive US History Professor Brumbaugh December 20,2014 Before the settlers landed in Jamestown, The Indians occupied the land and lived there for centuries. They were the first people to arrive in Jamestown. Some say there were 25,000 Indians; others say around 50,000 of the American natives, who lived on the land. There were about thirty different tribes whom the powhatan chiefdom took charge. However, each tribe had their own chief. In time there would be a change; King James 1 of England granted for another colony to be established under the Virginia Company of London which consisted of many wealthy Englishmen who wanted to invest their money into the company. They expected to open new lands for financial and patriotic explorations and use the resources of the new world. They wanted to establish English shipbuilding industries and to convert the Indians to Protestant Christianity. The Spanish were aggressive to convert the Indians to Roman Catholicism. Since there were already Spanish colonies in America, the English needed to develop new employment opportunities for the English. For this reason, English people wanted their own colonies. Around the time of 1607, there were three ships sailing from England: the Susan Constant, the Godspeed and the Discovery. They held around hundred and fifty English men, and boys who sailed four months before they reached Jamestown. During their voyage they encountered crowded......

...The blood or hemolymph, as in other arthropods, is carried in an open circulatory system.[3] The body organs, "heart" (dorsal aorta), muscles, etc. are surrounded in a reservoir of blood, and pulsing contractions of the tube-like dorsal aorta create a weak circulatory force. In fertilised queens the ovaries are activated when the queen lays her egg. It passes along the oviduct to the vagina. In the vagina there is a chamber called the spermatheca. This is where the queen stores sperm from her mating. The queen, depending on need, may allow her egg to be fertilised. Non-fertilised eggs become males, and only fertilised eggs grow into females and queens. As in all animals, hormones play a significant role in the growth and development of the bumblebee. The hormones that stimulate the development of the ovaries are suppressed in female worker bees, while the queen remains dominant. Salivary glands in the head secrete saliva, which mixes with the nectar and pollen. Saliva is also mixed into the nest materials to soften them. The body fat is a nutritional store; before hibernation, queens eat as much as they can to enlarge their fat body, and the fat in the cells is used up during hibernation.

My Message to All Muslim Brethren

...You may have read my website: www.vegetarianmuslim.org. You advocate the slaughtering of animals and eating its flesh while I condemn slaughtering of animals or eating its flesh. Very few Muslims would favour me for what I write and preach. It does not come as a surprise to me, for I am learned and enlightened while most of you do not know your religion or may never have read the Holy Quran with its deep meanings. I have nothing against you. Ultimately, we have to pay for our karma or deeds, sometime, somewhere, and somehow until we die. But it is my duty to let you know the reasons why I preach vegetarianism, why I am against slaughtering or eating of animal flesh, it may be a bird, a four legged animals, fish or any kind of eggs. Even honey and undue use of milk is avoided by me. WHY? IS THE QUESTION Brother, my reasons are as under: 1. Islam was introduced to us by our Holy Prophet Mohammed(peace will always be upon him). He was a hardcore vegetarian. Even small children who read the life history of the Prophet knows , when the Holy Prophet moved away from Mecca to Medina, he did this under great hardship for several days through the dessert and the jungles and on the way he lived on cooked leaves. He never slaughtered any animals during this transit period. He cautioned everyone that meat of animals are intoxicating like wine and also told his followers that they should not turn their stomach into a grave of dead animals. 2. Islam started as a religion giving equal......

Vegan: does not eat any animal products including meat, fish, fowl, eggs, dairy, honey, etc.; most vegans do not use any animal products such as silk, leather, wool, etc. as well. By eliminating meats from your diet you can take a crucial step towards a long life of health and happiness. “This is because a healthy vegetarian diet is typically low in fat and high in fiber. However a vegetarian diet can be high in fats that include an excessive amount of fatty snacks, fried foods, whole milk, dairy products, and eggs. Therefore a vegetarian diet like any other diet must be well planned in order to prevent certain diseases” (Brown Edu). Some of the leading killers in America today, include heart disease, cancer, obesity, and strokes, and they are directly linked to meat-based diets. Heart disease is the number one killer in America, which is caused by a buildup of cholesterol and saturated fat from animal products in the arteries. PETA states that the average began cholesterol level is 133 (compared to 210 for meat eaters); there is no documented cases of heart attacks in individuals with cholesterol under 150.

The Secret Life of Skin

...removes their flesh in order to sew it all together to form female skin with which to transform his identity from maleness to femaleness. As if to drape himself in this female fabric will transform his maleness. This crossing of gender in the skin also reflects the diminishing and fluid nature of male/female in society, with men now having hairless skin, and anointing and caring for their skin in a fashion that was once considered a purely female domain.   Hence, the ‘skinscape is also a genderscape’ (Howe 2005, 36). The enduring concepts of women as objects and possessions, tie women and land together: something owned, something ploughed, something penetrated. These concepts are overtly sexist but as a female, I demonstrate the invisible weight of these ideas. I once had a honey-scented body lotion, and whenever I rubbed it on myself, I always indulged in thinking I was a ‘land of milk and honey’ this ‘turns (my)self into an object’ (Berger 1972, 47). I’m not alone in creating a metaphor of skinscape and landscape. Shakira (‘lucky that my breasts are small and humble / so you don’t confuse them with mountains’) and Neruda (‘When I look at the shape of America on the map, my love, it is you I see:’) are both examples. These metaphors are also carried into life, with countless cultures emulating aspects of their environment – even today in Western society’s, our obsession with willowy forms and tight ageless skin seems to be a mimic of a cityscape of skyscrapers......
