'Glo' Digital Bible Answers: What Would Jesus Click? Call it Bible 2.0: Glo, a "Bible for a digital world," goes on sale today for $90. Function-wise, it's analogous to DVD-based digital encyclopedias. The NIV text is linked with more than 500 360-degree panoramas of holy sites, 7,500 encyclopedia articles, 2,400 photos, 700 pieces of art, and 3.5 hours of HD video.

Footprints in the Sand Graphics | Welcome to I Had a Dream One night I had a dream I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to me and the other to my Lord. When the last scene of my life shot before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand. There was only on set of footprints. I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times in my life. This always bothered me and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma. “Lord, you told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk and talk with me all the way. But I’m aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed You most, you leave me.” He whispered, “My precious, precious child, I love you and will never leave you never, ever during your times of trial and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints It was then that I carried you.” Margaret Fishback Powers

Douglas Today, we once again have what Betty Friedan famously called "a problem with no name." At the same time, these young women get the message loud and clear that the absolute last thing they should embrace is feminism. After reviewing the media fare geared to girls and women since the early 1990s, I came to see a rather large gap between how the vast majority of girls and women live their lives, the choices they are forced to make, and what we see -- and don't see -- in the media. What the media have been giving us then over the past fifteen years are fantasies of power. Today many young women regard feminism as the ideological equivalent of anthrax A New Brand of Sexism With women's equality supposedly won, sexist stereotypes are considered amusing Search, Read, Study the Bible in Many Languages Samizdat Paul Gosselin Ami intime de JRR Tolkien (auteur bien connu du "Hobbit" et du "Seigneur des Anneaux"), ils fréquentaient ensemble une société littéraire qui s'appelait les "Inklings".

Coexist? « Wiser Time I don’t know what’s sadder about this – that your depictions of the conflicts between these groups is so misguided, or that you would, as a Christian, take the position that the peaceful coexistence of religions is somehow a bad idea. To begin with: C is bound by the Koran to honor the religions of the book – at the very least, T and X. Some don’t, but most do; you’re far better off being T or X than atheist in most muslim nations. The conflict between X and C is not a religious conflict; it is a political conflict over the state of Israel. C has no beef with T either, though some C individuals, as well as some muslim states, have a conflict with America (which is in no sense a representative of T) over our unwavering support X when X commits grievous acts against some members of C. Your description of E makes me feel positively ill. O does not invariably support C over X. X’s existence is threatened by conflict with some members of C, yes. But it’s all beside the point. Way to go, T.

Christian YouTube alternatives. 'Youtube' sites for Christians What is YouTube anyway? Well, is an amazing website full of videos made by individuals, arganizations and film companies.

Famous Oscar Wild quotation | Our Funny Planet No man is rich enough to buy back his past The world is a stage, but the play is badly cast I don`t like principles. I prefer prejudices One should always be in love. Life is never fair… An perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible Experience is the name everyone gives to his mistakes Humanity takes itself too seriously. Women are meant to be loved, not to be understood I am not young enough to know everything We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell I can resist anything but temptation Life is much too important a thing ever to talk seriously about it Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them as much A kiss may ruin a human life I am always astonishing myself.

Γλωσσάριο χρηματοπιστωτικών όρων Μέχρι τώρα εξετάσαμε πώς μερικές οικονομίες κερδίζουν περισσότερα από τις εισαγωγές τους απ' ότι πληρώνουν για τις εισαγωγές τους με το πλεόνασμα να είναι διαθέσιμο για άλλες χρήσεις. Το ίδιο ισχύει για τις εταιρίες και τα νοικοκυριά: αν τα έσοδά τους είναι μεγαλύτερα από τις δαπάνες τους έχουν χρήματα που μπορούν να δανείσουν σε άλλους. Στο σημείο αυτό παρεμβαίνει ο χρηματοπιστωτικός τομέας που διοχετεύει, με το αζημίωτο, το χρήμα από εκείνους που δανείζουν σε εκείνους που δανείζονται. Χρηματοπιστωτική διαμεσολάβηση, είναι μια άλλη έκφραση για όταν εκείνοι που θέλουν να δανείσουν συναντούν εκείνους που έχουν ανάγκη δανεικών, κάτι που συμβαίνει μεταξύ χωρών (όπως όταν η Κίνα αγοράζει ομόλογα ΗΠΑ) και εντός αυτών, όπως όταν μια τράπεζα αξιοποιεί τις καταθέσεις των νοικοκυριών για να παράσχει δάνειο σε μια εταιρία. Έτσι, η διαμεσολάβηση συνήθως παρέχεται από τις… Τράπεζες. Ή τουλάχιστον αυτό συμβαίνει στους καλούς καιρούς. Πανικός. Έλλειψη ρευστότητας. Χρεοκοπία. Κεφαλαίων της τράπεζας.
