  • Greater Is The Joy In Me, Than The Depression In The World

    08/21/2022 6:21:57 PM PDT · by Kandy Atz · 2 replies ^ | 05/10/2015 | Harrison Woodard
    In the world, you find depression, sorrow, despondency, sadness, discouragement, misery, and woe. However, none of those have any place in a child of God. In His presence there is not just joy, but abundant joy! Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11 KJV One might object by saying that Psalm 16 is not about Believers, but Jesus. Believers are made alive in Christ, and seated together in Heavenly places with Christ Jesus. Believers are blessed with all spiritual Blessings in...
  • Research shows it's how often you do it, not how much (Exercise 6 reps/day = 10% strength inc. in 4 weeks)

    This latest research indicates a little bit of daily activity could well be the most beneficial approach, at least for muscle strength. And happily, it also suggests you don't have to put in a mountain of work every day. The four-week training study had three groups of participants performing an arm resistance exercise and changes in muscle strength and muscle thickness were measured and compared. The exercise consisted of 'maximal voluntary eccentric bicep contractions' performed on a machine which measures muscle strength in each muscle contraction you would do at the gym. An eccentric contraction is when the muscle is...

    SEATTLE, WA — A strong, independent woman accompanied a strong, independent woman to the restroom in a pub in downtown Seattle, according to sources. "Just because I want my bestie with me at all times doesn't mean I'm not independent!" said Kira Jules, a strong, independent woman standing next to her friend, also a strong, independent woman. The women said they have always been capable on their own as they stood in the hallway waiting for the restroom together. "I do everything on my own," said Kira's friend, Sasha Wallens, "Except when I'm out having fun, or at work, or...

    National Economic Council Director Brian Deese on Tuesday argued that the U.S. is in a position of strength to combat high inflation, following President Biden’s release of a three-part plan to lower rising prices. “The economy we have right now is in a transition from this period of historic economic growth to a period that can be more stable, resilient growth. That requires focusing on inflation and doing so from a position of relative strength,” Deese told CNBC.
  • Sarcopenic obesity linked to dementia in elderly patients

    05/28/2022 9:34:56 PM PDT · by ConservativeMind · 3 replies
    Obesity, an increasingly prevalent lifestyle disease, often occurs along with poor muscle mass. This condition, called sarcopenic obesity, is evaluated based on the patients' body mass index (BMI) and handgrip strength. Interestingly, sarcopenic obesity is known to increase the risk of cognitive impairment. Dementia, a cognitive condition where memory, thinking and social abilities progressively decline, is known to significantly affect the quality of life in elderly people. Is this condition associated with sarcopenic obesity? A group of researchers explored this very question. "If the association between sarcopenic obesity and dementia is established, appropriate preventive measures can be taken to reduce...

He also emphasized the importance of humanitarian assistance for the Ukrainian people.

  • New superconducting magnet breaks magnetic field strength records, paving the way for fusion energy

    09/08/2021 1:54:37 PM PDT · by LibWhacker · 21 replies ^ | 9/8/2021 | David Chandler
    It was a moment three years in the making, based on intensive research and design work: On Sept. 5, for the first time, a large high-temperature superconducting electromagnet was ramped up to a field strength of 20 tesla, the most powerful magnetic field of its kind ever created on Earth. That successful demonstration helps resolve the greatest uncertainty in the quest to build the world's first fusion power plant that can produce more power than it consumes, according to the project's leaders at MIT and startup company Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS). That advance paves the way, they say, for the...

    While the debate on whether or not “trans women” (i.e. biological males) should be allowed to compete against women in sports presses on, proponents of transgenderism continue to celebrate these “brave” “women.” One sports publication has gone as far as to name trans MMA fighter Fallon Fox, who has twice broken his biological female opponent’s skulls, the “bravest athlete in history.” To be fair, the sports publication who recognized Fox in this way is Outsports, a magazine dedicated to LGBT athletes, but it remains just as ironic to call a man who opts to fight women instead of other men...

    “Power Made Perfect in Weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:1-10) The words that engage our attention this morning and that will bring comfort to our souls are these verses from our Epistle reading, 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, where St. Paul writes: “But he [the Lord] said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am...

    The second comes from The Atlantic’s Emma Green. Detailing the findings of a survey conducted by her magazine and the Public Religion Research Institute, she notes that 61 percent of white working-class men view college as a “risky gamble.” Green’s report contained this explanation: “The enduring narrative of the American dream is that if you study and get a college education and work hard, you can get ahead,” said Robert P. Jones, the CEO of PRRI. “The survey shows that many white working-class Amer­icans, especially men, no longer see that path available to them. . . . It is this sense of economic fatalism,...

    The mainstream media's usual hand-wringing about President Trump's Twitter habit morphed into hyperventilation last week after he shared several "unverified" tweets about terrorism, but the director of the Central Intelligence Agency surprisingly doesn't have a problem with it. CIA Director Mike Pompeo said at a national security event in Simi Valley, California, over the weekend that Trump's tweeting has actually yielded helpful intelligence. The current CIA director sat down with former CIA director Leon Panetta and Fox News host Brett Baier for an hour of discussion on world events from a security perspective at The Reagan National Defense Forum on...

    Despite Donald Trump’s controversial tenure as US President, including an investigation for an impeachable offence, Australia’s faith in its alliance with US has risen dramatically since the property magnate took office. Some 65 per cent of Australians believe in our close relationship with the US under President Trump, up from the 51 per cent who supported the alliance during the 2016 presidential election campaign that Hillary Clinton was widely tipped to win, according to a Lowy Institute poll. As many as 77 per cent of Australians believe the alliance with the United States is either “very” or “fairly” important for...

RUSSIA: MISSILE STRIKE ON SYRIA BROKE THE LAW The officials said three Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers took off from a base in eastern Russia flying in the Sea of Japan and remained in international airspace. One U.S. official described the Russian bomber flight as “clearly meant to send a message.”
