How to Pursue a Career with the United Nations or Other International Humanitarian Organizations Introduction Let's get right to it: Your desire to help others, or your desire to travel, or your ambition, are not enough to work for the United Nations or any other international humanitarian or development organization. In addition, you need more than a good heart. (see Five Reasons Not to Join the Peace Corps for more on these themes) As well, just because you have worked in the for-profit/corporate sector does not mean your skills will translate into the humanitarian sector, or that you will automatically be appropriate for a leadership role at an international NGO. And, finally, finding paid work abroad as an aid worker or humanitarian worker is similar to finding a for-profit job: you must network. Following the advice on this page is no guarantee you will get to work abroad in international development. Specialization The United Nations and other international agencies prefer to hire local people whenever possible for work in a developing country. Languages Your CV Networking

» Gold Panning Instructions The main thing to remember about the use of a gold pan is that while it is very effective as a gold-catching device, it can only process a limited volume of streambed material. For this reason, the gold pan is normally not used as a production tool in commercial use, other than in the most remote locations where it would be very difficult to haul large pieces of equipment, and where there is only a small amount of streambed material present — which is paying well enough to make the panning worthwhile. The gold pan is most commonly used to locate a richer paying area by sampling, so that larger production equipment can be brought into that location to work the ground to recover more gold. There are stories in the old mining records about the ground being so rich during the 1849 gold rush that as much as 96 ounces of gold were recovered from a single pan. That is $100,000+ at today’s rate of exchange, and must have been some very rich ground indeed! Placer Geology Gold Panning Procedure

How to Do What You Love January 2006 To do something well you have to like it. That idea is not exactly novel. We've got it down to four words: "Do what you love." But it's not enough just to tell people that. Doing what you love is complicated. The very idea is foreign to what most of us learn as kids. And it did not seem to be an accident. The world then was divided into two groups, grownups and kids. Teachers in particular all seemed to believe implicitly that work was not fun. I'm not saying we should let little kids do whatever they want. Once, when I was about 9 or 10, my father told me I could be whatever I wanted when I grew up, so long as I enjoyed it. Jobs By high school, the prospect of an actual job was on the horizon. The main reason they all acted as if they enjoyed their work was presumably the upper-middle class convention that you're supposed to. Why is it conventional to pretend to like what you do? What a recipe for alienation. The most dangerous liars can be the kids' own parents. Bounds Notes

Osho's 112 Meditations - have you tried them? by JOHN KAPP (Vivek) 17th March 2005 1 Author I have been doing Osho’s meditations and meditation therapies regularly for 3 years, and they have transformed my life for the better, curing my obsessional neuroses, making me more contented and easier to live with. I want to share these simple, cost-effective remedies, so I lead them as drop-ins at Planet Janet café in Hove, and have offered to lead them in a local mental hospital for the staff. This article tries to explain the process to doctors, hoping to get them accepted. 2 Synopsis / abstract Osho (1931-90) was an Indian academic and mystic who took the new science of consciousness forward by a great leap. 3 What is the scope of this paper? 4 What is the message? 5 What do you mean by ‘evidence base’? 6 What is meditation? ‘Meditation means putting the mind aside so that it no longer interferes with reality and you can see things as they are’ 7 Who are you? 8 What is disease? 9 What is the cause and cure of dis-ease? .

Orissa India Cubensis All the way from India, an EXTREMELY large growing cubensis that spawned from elephant dung has blessed us all. This strain of cubensis has to be one of the largest growing anyone has seen. Originally brought to us my entheomycologist John Allen, once again a big thanks John, this one really rocks the boat. Ever seen dinner plate sized mushrooms? Even on simple rice cakes in Amsterdamn this one grows some rather large mushrooms. -Clyde- and his fellow Amsterdam growers have seen some mixed results from this one as well. These are the most recent pics of the Indian cub. This is a larger version of the small pic above. Here are some great pics sent in by our Indian friend Ox growing the Indian Cub on rice cakes in a 1 gallon plastic terranium. These were grown by a friend using compost in terranium.

The Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade One of the first times I ever realized that – HEY! I can cook for myself! – was when I first learned to make lemonade. I magically found the refrigerated lemon juice at our house and followed the directions to make my own lemonade. I stirred and stirred and stirred again until that sugar was finally dissolved. Sorry for the detour. Anyway, there was a summer there where I made my own lemonade every single day, making sure to rub it in my sister’s face that I knew how to and she didn’t. The key to this being the ultimate lemonade is that you blend it up with the lemon rind in there. And any time of day for that matter. (makes 2 pint-glass servings with ice) 3/4 cup sugar2 large lemons, microwaved for 30 seconds2 cups water1 cup of frozen strawberries, microwaved for 1 minute (you could use fresh, but I think the frozen works better here) In a blender squeeze the lemons and add the rest of the lemon, rind and all. Now if that doesn’t say summer, I don’t know what does.

Orgone Orgone energy accumulator (with door closed) (with door open) Alternating layers of organic and non-organic materials inside the walls supposedly increase the orgone concentration inside the enclosure relative to the surrounding environment. Reich's theories held that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases—including cancer—much as deficits or constrictions in the libido could produce neuroses in Freudian theory. Reich founded the Orgone Institute ca. 1942[10] to pursue research into orgone energy after he immigrated to the US in 1939, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine lists orgone as a type of "putative energy".[12] There is no empirical support for the concept of orgone in medicine or the physical sciences,[6][dead link] and research into the concept ceased with the end[when?] History[edit] Evaluation[edit] William S.

Wilhelm Reich Wilhelm Reich (/raɪx/; German: [ʀaɪç], 24 March 1897 – 3 November 1957) was an Austrian psychoanalyst, a member of the second generation of psychoanalysts after Sigmund Freud, and one of the most radical figures in the history of psychiatry. He was the author of several influential books, most notably Character Analysis (1933) and The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933).[2] His work on character contributed to the development of Anna Freud's The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defence (1936), and his idea of muscular armour – the expression of the personality in the way the body moves – shaped innovations such as body psychotherapy, Fritz Perls's Gestalt therapy, Alexander Lowen's bioenergetic analysis, and Arthur Janov's primal therapy. His writing influenced generations of intellectuals: during the 1968 student uprisings in Paris and Berlin, students scrawled his name on walls and threw copies of The Mass Psychology of Fascism at the police.[3] Early life[edit] Childhood[edit]

Truth about THC and your pineal gland. - Page 2 As a result of these findings Cremer-Bartels et al (1984) state that: "The general biological role of melatonin may be interpreted as translator of environmental conditions." They conclude: "The determinations of the enzymes involved in the melatonin biosynthesis clearly revealed that 50% increased or decreased EMF affects the melatonin biosynthesis in birds in vitro and in vivo However, Wever (1968) showed that shielding the EMF desynchronised circadian rhythms in humans significantly, even when light perception was not excluded. This suggests that the magnetic component of the regulation of circadian rhythm is just as important as light. When an animal is kept in constant darkness it is found that its circadian rhythm carries on, but on a 25 hour rhythm. Geomagnetism appears to be one of the environmental conditions which seem to enhance pineal activity although the details are not yet clear. LinK: [link to] Will tell my Mum next time I see her!
