Graham Hill: Less stuff, more happiness

Lord's Resistance Army The Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), also known as the Lord's Resistance Movement, is a rebel group and heterodox Christian cult which operates in northern Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.[5] Originally known as the United Holy Salvation Army and Uganda Christian Army/Movement, its stated goals include establishment of multi-party democracy,[6] ruling Uganda according to the Ten Commandments,[7] and Acholi nationalism,[8] though in practice "the LRA is not motivated by any identifiable political agenda, and its military strategy and tactics reflect this".[9] It appears to largely function as a personality cult of its leader Joseph Kony,[8] a self-declared prophet whose leadership has earned him the nickname "Africa's David Koresh".[10] History[edit] In 1986, the armed rebellion waged by Yoweri Museveni's National Resistance Army (NRA) won the Ugandan Bush War and achieved control of the country.

Incredible Clutter Transformations In the beginning of January, Leo Babauta and I challenged you to dump 50% of your stuff. More than 2000 people signed up for the Clutterfat Challenge and made a commitment to clear the clutter. Here are 2 remarkable stories of real people donating, selling and trading in their clutter for a better life. Stevie Allen I recently participated in The Clutterfat Challenge, where I agreed to go through all of my “stuff” over a 30 day period and attempt to get rid of what wasn’t needed or wanted anymore. The goal was to dump 50% of my stuff. Pride goeth before the fall. I began this journey according to the directions, downloaded the three page worksheet, and walking into the bathroom to begin counting every object in there. To say I was angry, depressed, overwhelmed, and maybe even a bit furious during the two days it took me to count all the stuff in my house doesn’t quite describe the emotion I felt. The final statistics A breakdown of where my stuff was: Read more from Stevie at

Pogo (dance) Pogo during a concert. The pogo is a dance in which the dancers jump up and down, while remaining in the same location; the dance takes its name from its resemblance to the use of a pogo stick, especially in a common version of the dance, where an individual keeps their torso stiff, their arms rigid, and their legs close together. Pogo dancing is most associated with punk rock, and is a precursor to moshing. The basic steps allow for a variety of interpretations, some of which might appear quite violent. Pogo dancers have their choice of: keeping their torsos rigid or thrashing them about;holding their arms stiffly at their sides or flailing them;keeping their legs together or kicking about;jumping straight up and down, jumping in any direction, or spinning in the air. Occasionally, dancers collide, but this is not necessarily part of pogo dancing. About the pogo dance

» Finding yourself in spareness We often create an identity for ourselves using things. We have logos or slogans or cute catchphrases on our clothing, and it shows people who we are. We have tattoos or piercings, baseball caps, accessories, smartphones, designer bags, Manolo Blahnik shoes … and these express to others who we are. In our homes, what we have on our walls shows others who we are. But what happens when you strip all this away? In spareness, we are confronted by a lack. When there is just you, and nothing else, you must look inside yourself. There is an empty room, and you. In spareness, you find enough.

Mixed-use development Traditional mixed-use development: residential and retail, pedestrian-friendly street in Bitola, Macedonia Mixed-use development is—in a broad sense—any urban, suburban or village development, or even a single building, that blends a combination of residential, commercial, cultural, institutional, or industrial uses, where those functions are physically and functionally integrated, and that provides pedestrian connections.[1][2] The term ("a mixed-use development") may also be used more specifically to refer to a mixed-use real estate development project—a building, complex of buildings, or district of a town or city that is developed for mixed-use by a private developer, (quasi-)governmental agency, or a combination thereof.

The Difference between Aliens, Demons and Fallen Angels The Difference Between Fallen Angels, Demons, Aliens, Jedi, and the Watchers By Sherry Shriner In these last days, the Bible says it will be a time of mass hybridization and the mixture and corruption of human DNA by fallen angels, also known as "Aliens." The government is and has been, conditioning the existence of aliens through Hollywood, science fiction, cartoons, and other sources. However, they are not telling you the whole truth. These Aliens are not ascended masters, or enlightened ones, or beings from galaxies millions of miles away, nor are they our forefathers or original creators. The Lord has told me that in the coming days, these Aliens will make their presence more visibly and physically known on earth. As the end times approach, the lies of extra terrestrial lineage, heritage, and creation will come out in full force. Two Separate Rebellions in the Early Days Most people are familiar with the rebellion of Satan wanting to be like God and wanting to be worshipped as God.

Women in Refrigerators History[edit] Panel from Green Lantern #54, the origin of the phrase The term "Women in Refrigerators" was coined by writer Gail Simone as a name for the website in early 1999 during online discussions about comic books with friends. It refers to an incident in Green Lantern #54 (1994), written by Ron Marz, in which Kyle Rayner, the title hero, comes home to his apartment to find that his girlfriend, Alex DeWitt, had been killed by the villain Major Force and stuffed in a refrigerator.[2][3] Simone and her friends then developed a list of fictional characters who had been "killed, maimed or depowered. The list is considered “infamous” in certain comic book fan circles. Creator response[edit] Simone received numerous e-mail responses from comic book fans and professionals. Simone published many of the responses she received on the website.[7] Journalist Beau Yarbrough created the initial design and coding on the original site.
