The Art of Survival #3: From Trust to Unity

first_imgWhen we learn the Art of Survival, we can be more than just puppets on remote control. We can move from weakness back to strength.Why is our Unity so important? The Grebo proverb tells us: “…. It is for wisdom that people travel together.”The elders tell us: “The reason our people fail when it comes to Unity is because we cannot handle Trust. We Trust when we shouldn’t and don’t Trust when we should.” Equally as important, our integrity is too weak from oppression to warrant Trust from those who would give it.Why are we so afraid to Trust? We destroy our own nation’s capacity to Trust beginning with our babies. When our young babies begin to listen and understand language, we tell them, “Stop crying. I’m coming just now. Let me buy your bread and come.” When, in fact, we are going – not coming. And we will not return “just now”. It will be much later with no bread for the child. Truth is the core of Trust and we lie too much to our children. So they grow up afraid to Trust anyone.It’s a vicious cycle that our children continue to reinforce as they grow older. They become like the people in power today who know that nobody Trusts them anyway, so they make false promises – say anything and do nothing. Our nation remains weak and unable to Survive – except as little more than a slave nation.But how do you know who to Trust? Do you feel you cannot truly Unite with others because nobody is Trustworthy? Then how about you? Are you, your very self, Trustworthy? If you are blessed to find someone you can trust can they Trust you?We’d like to thank our sons, Teli Shabu and Moses Bailey for this constant reminder: “If I want to see change and reconciliation, the first thing I have to change and reconcile with is ME!” Once your own commitment to integrity is made, just practice it daily. That is the starting point. We must be TRUTH and TRUST in all we say and do and it is guaranteed we will find another and another to join with us. By being unquestionably Trustworthy ourselves, people will Unite with us.The next step: teaching, encouraging, even requiring others like family and staff to do the same – all building our Unity for national and worldwide Survival.Liberia Holds the KeyShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rooftop campout to recruit Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers

first_imgA free public swim will be held tomorrow night from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the pool, and a Scholastic book sale is going on throughout the Rooftop Challenge. Armstrong says that they’re just looking to get the information out to those interested, and there’s no need to sign up right away. “All we’re looking for during the Rooftop Challenge is for people to come down, pick up information, and maybe grab an application, some brochures, give us their contact information so we can follow up, find out if they have any questions,” she explains. “We’re not looking for any commitment at this time.” There are several different ways to volunteer with the organization, like at special events, as a board member, or a mentor. Being a mentor is only a minimum three hour commitment a month, but Armstrong says the impact on a child’s life can be “huge”. – Advertisement -“Most of the children involved in our program come from single-parent families, and the parents are focused on bringing in income, so they don’t necessarily have time to go out and do these fun things with the kids,” she explains. “That’s really all Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring is about is just having fun, sharing a little time and establishing a friendship with kids who could really use a little bit more support.” Each mentorship match is unique, and based on common interests and compatibility. Advertisementlast_img read more

Groundspeak Weekly Newsletter – February 9, 2011

first_imgHabits of a Good Geocache OwnerAs a geocache owner, your responsibilities don’t end once your geocache has been published. Owning a geocache is an ongoing responsibility that, when done properly, results in more geocaching fun for everyone. Here are some tips on being a good cache owner.1. When someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.), check on the cache as soon as possible. If need be, you may temporarily disable the cache to let others know not to hunt for it. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time – normally a few weeks – to arrange a visit to your cache.2. Keep an eye out for Did Not Find logs. If there are several in a row, the cache may be missing even if no one has reported it as such. You may want to communicate with the people who logged a DNF to see where they were searching.3. If a geocacher that is new to the game logs a DNF on your cache and you are certain that the cache is still in place, you might help them out by emailing a tip.4. You should check on your cache periodically even if no issue has been reported. You may want to bring a fresh logbook in case yours is almost full or some new SWAG (trade items) for the cache.5. When checking on your cache, see if the physical Trackable inventory matches the digital inventory. As a cache owner, you have the option of marking any Trackables listed in your cache as being in an “unknown location.” Learn how.6. Cache owners are also responsible for quality control of posts the cache page. This includes deleting logs that are bogus or not within the stated requirements.7. If you did not add attributes when you first created the cache listing, add them now by clicking “edit attributes” in the upper-right corner of the page. Attributes help other geocachers identify caches that suit their needs.For more information and tips, check out the Knowledge Book Cache Ownership: A Long-Term Relationship.Benefits of Adding Home CoordinatesPlease enter your home coordinates so we can provide information on new geocaches and geocaching events near you.Share with your Friends:More SharePrint Related9 Tips for responsible cache maintenanceJune 6, 2017In “Learn”Geocaching Etiquette 201: Finding and LoggingJune 14, 2019In “Community”5 Geocaching Dreams — And How to Interpret ThemMarch 3, 2015In “Community”last_img read more

Playing in I-League a Phenomenal Experience: Minerva Punjab FC’s Thoiba Singh

Follow on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. New Delhi: The 2017-18 Hero I-League champions Minerva Punjab FC are set to kickstart another campaign and one of the players to keep an eye out for will be young Thoiba Singh Moirangthem, who is already making waves with his performances at just 16 years of age.He was a part of the India U16 team that reached the quarter-finals of the AFC U16 Championships last year in Malaysia and the side that lifted the SAFF U18 Championship 2019 in September. At the domestic level, he made his professional debut with Punjab FC in the Hero I-League 2018/19 against the Indian Arrows at only 15 years 11 months old and went on to make seven league appearances in the season.”Playing in the I-League was a phenomenal experience,” he told, before adding, “I learned a lot from it and it has made me a better player for sure.”He spoke about how travelling around the country and sharing the dressing room with highly experienced players has helped him improve in multiple spheres. “I have learned a lot – how to behave in situations, how to be disciplined in terms of my diet and punctuality and managing my rest with all the travel involved,” he explained.The teenager continued, “Senior players such as Al Amna (Mahmoud) helped me a lot. They shared their experience and guided me on how to play on the field, keep myself fit and develop as a player. Sachin sir (former Minerva coach Sachin Badadhe) also taught me a great deal in terms of tactics and gave me the confidence to play my game.”Thoiba, who can play in the back line as well as a defensive midfielder, stood toe-to-toe against seasoned veterans in the competition and stated that he relishes such battles against physically stronger rivals.”Alag hi josh aata hai (You get a different level of energy),” he quipped. “I strongly believe that I am as good as them and there’s no reason why I cannot match them. On the night of the eve of matches, I visualize how I will face my opponents so as to gain an advantage on the pitch.”By virtue of their I-League title victory in 2018, Minerva Punjab FC represented India in the AFC Champions League playoff and AFC Cup in the 2018/19 season – with Thoiba featuring in all the games. He also found the net against Nepal side Manang Marshyangdi, making him the youngest scorer in the competition’s history.Talking about the experience of playing at the continental level, he said, “It was a great feeling. We were representing India – not just our club. Travelling to Iran, Nepal and Bangladesh, and playing there was an incredible learning experience – especially at such a young age.”He concluded, “I am looking forward to the start of the new season. The whole team is motivated to do well.” footballI-Leagueindian footballMinerva Punjab FC First Published: October 26, 2019, 9:40 PM ISTlast_img read more
