Sam Berns’ Philosophy for a Happy Life (12-Minute Incredible TED Talk)
Intro duction I was born in , and had a fairly typical middle class suburban American childhood fan of Gilligan’s Island and Star Trek. I was largely raised in Ventura, California; my mother ran the household while my father worked to support the family. His entire career was spent working for the federal government, and all but one year was spent working for the Department of Defense. If anything, the political outlook that I was raised with was fairly Cold War, but not too pronounced. I was taught that the Soviets were the bad guys, and my family generally supported politicians from the Democratic Party. My father was rather outraged when Nixon won the presidency in , and I was saddened when Reagan beat Carter in

Share by Mail Frank Turek stands at a small section of the northern wall of Jericho that did not collapse during the conquest. Most sections of the wall fell outward as the Bible says allowing the Israelites to walk up and into the city. In the biblical record the two events stand or fall together. If there was an exodus as the Bible states, then there was also a military conquest which followed it.
Both of these events if they happened , should be discernible from the historical and archaeological record. Because of the nature of the subject matter, it has been very difficult to condense the massive amounts of research about this into a blog format. Many Christians and skeptics, however, consistently ask me about this, so I felt it necessary to try to summarize, as best as possible, an affirmative view of the historical events recorded in the Pentateuch and historical book of Joshua.
Of course, the origins of ancient Israel, the Exodus and Conquest, is an ongoing debate among NE archaeologists and scholars and I am sure it will be until Christ comes again! As we have stated before, the precise dating of the events in the Bible is the KEY to discovering them in the archaeological record! Another word for this, is chronology.

By Dosar But I think a discussion can be had as to how asians and latinos are victims of this as well. These are vastly different things and so of course the conversation is awkward and confusing. However, racism of today is different from the racism of yesterday. I guess I will say that actions are more important than words.

The Secret to Desire in a Long-Term Relationship This has to be one of my favourite talks on sexual desire and eroticism in long-term relationships.

Get out of here, okay? Hear you got busted. You look like shit, man!
For the past week, Amy Webb has been inspiring people to calculate their own algorithm for love. Her laugh-out-loud TED Talk, about reverse engineering her online dating profile and, essentially, data-ing her way into her perfect relationship has gotten a lot of attention, including on The Frisky and Pop Sugar.
Those exchanges prompted me to shape this piece. While most TED talks are enlightening, not all of them address the specific concerns of boomers — the issues that Next Avenue deals with every day. So I decided to dive deep into the overwhelming pool of TED content to find the ones that deliver on that score. These talks may not change your life, but I guarantee they will intrigue you, open your eyes and make you think differently. Here are my favorite boomer-to-boomer presentations, which I culled from the TED site.
Potent ways boomer parents can encourage their twentysomething kids Meg Jay: Contrary to popular belief, your 20s are not a throwaway decade.

Ted quotes are most definitely not for the easily offended. They are rude, crude and vulgar but most definitely full of laugh out loud moments. The story centers on a grown man whose childhood wish that his teddy bear would come to life comes true and refuses to leave his side ever since.
Is Russia on the edge of economic collapse? If you recall during the Reagan s, there was a huge artificial drop in oil prices in an effort to collapse the far more fragile Soviet economy, which was even then exporting energy resources, and was ONLY one of the MANY factors that set into motion the eventual collapse of the USSR. So, the same tactic of a sudden drop of oil prices is tried again to collapse the RF economy, and the Russians mostly yawn this time around. The figures Putin cites in his press conference evinces that Russia is in pretty good shape with trillions of rubles in various reserves, enormous gold reserves of which some 55 tons pretty sure of that figure were bought or accumulated just in the third quarter.
Unemployment is way down, and all of the social welfare obligations are being met. Putin is comparing the current economic situation to , and that some of the same measures will be taken as were taken then. Nabiullina an ethnic Tartar has some very impressive credentials http: We can pick up an Old Testament, a New Testament, or any other historical document from any ancient culture, and it records the same thing; hatred for the Jews.
The media in this country, and for the most part, every white nation on earth is now under the control of the Jews. And because of this, you will never find any discussions of the reasons why, only constant moans of the poor, innocent Jew who is hated and oppressed for no reason at all. No one has ever been hated as deeply or for as long as the Jews without some damned good reasons behind that hatred… By studying ancient history on up to present day, we find a pattern.
This pattern is why Jews are despised by every race on the planet.

February 7, 1: Gornai also tells us Assad is hanging 50 People a day. Pollard should have been executed long ago just like the Jewish Rosenbrugs were for betraying America. Nothing wrong about this. In my opinion there is nothing wrong with someone being Jewish as long as he is not a racist, greedy, selfish, pervert but a decent person. Considering how badly Black Ethiopian Jews are being treated in Israel, that was secretly sterilizing them, even being Jewish does not protect you from being discriminated against by Jews.
The problem is that too many of them are too much in love with themselves, too corrupted, too perverted. Painfully hurting infant sexual organs badly few days after birth with circumcision while the baby is already in a shock has a catastrophic impact on the mental health and spiritual development as the fundament is ruined.
Even most grown up people would not really recover being shocked while already in a state of shock. You poor, suffering English people. What a ridiculous twit.

We need to talk about TED. The high-profile conglomerate of conferences dedicated to bite-sized “ideas worth spreading” was a smashing enterprise when it began, back in the early s, as a.
And I thought, what’s wrong with me? I don’t understand why this keeps happening. So I asked everybody in my life what they thought. I turned to my grandmother, who always had plenty of advice, and she said, “Stop being so picky. You’ve got to date around. And most importantly, true love will find you when you least expect it. I am constantly swimming in numbers, formulas and charts.
I also have a very tight-knit family, and I’m very, very close with my sister, and as a result, I wanted to have the same type of family when I grew up. So I’m at the end of this bad breakup, I’m 30 years old, I figure I’m probably going to have to date somebody for about six months before I’m ready to get monogamous and before we can sort of cohabitate, and we have to do that for a while before we can get engaged.
And if I want to start having children by the time I’m 35, that meant that I would have had to have been on my way to marriage five years ago. So that wasn’t going to work. If my strategy was to least-expect my way into true love, then the variable that I had to deal with was serendipity. In short, I was trying to figure out what’s the probability of my finding Mr. Well, at the time I was living in the city of Philadelphia, and it’s a big city, and I figured, in this entire place, there are lots of possibilities.
