Aspirations in Life : Where it is going to stop?

first_imgThere is no doubt that children these days are very smart and wise in many areas. But unfortunately, they tend to start thinking themselves as masters in all subjects. Here they tend to go wrong. They forget that experience also counts in life. Experience can be a combination of failure and success both. As both teaches us something in return.Let’s talk about Success first as everyone likes to hear the success stories in life first rather than the failure ones. There is nothing wrong in this thinking. Everyone looks for happiness and smiles on the faces rather than tears of pain in the eyes as a first choice if options are given to anyone.But unfortunately, the flip side of success is that it shows you the false side of the rise in power, which comes automatically with the chair or position you occupy. All respect, blessings, greetings, gifts, pleasings, appreciation, honours come as a package deal from the dealers or the partners or partnerships you end up doing.It’s a rising phase of life which gives you happiness, hope, gains, friends, frolic, fun, everything comes in abundance. Every day starts looking like a better than the previous ones. No doubt, you wouldn’t like to avoid dreams like this for such power and success in life for sure. Only fools will think of avoiding these pleasures and name and fame.But in the bargain, we tend to forget the hard reality and fact of life that nothing is perfect and permanent for sure in this universe. Anything rising up has to come down one day. There is a queue lined up to take over the position of any value of name and fame. So, it might be your turn or gain today but it will have to change at some point of time due to competition amongst each other is the destiny of life, which cannot be ignored or denied by anyone of us for sure.Human desires are changing at a faster pace, so are the demands. Humans are getting bored very fast with one stereotype of lifestyle these days. Be it related to materialistic things or any other desires in life. They are aspiring for more and more each passing day.The sky is the limit for them. One really gets scared to see the desires and demands rising high at rocket speed. But the good news is that there are many people who are equally working hard to fulfil the demands of human aspirations to meet and make others dream come true.In today’s date, nothing seems to be impossible. We the humans are in the race to convert ‘Impossible ‘ into ‘I am possible ‘. There is nothing wrong in this philosophy. But unfortunately, in the race to reach the desired destination, we have started missing out on our daily activities which are supposed to be giving us pleasure, good and healthy living conditions plus comfortable environment at home and offices.We have started treating everyone like a machine in the bargain. We tend to show and behave like as if there is not going to be tomorrow. We think today is the last day of life to complete everything. This kind of race and culture is creating an unhealthy atmosphere everywhere.This is applicable only for living life beautifully and to the fullest as a whole. Live life daily as a blessing of God with your family who are the most loved ones and cares for you in good faith and for your betterment and success.Friends too have an important role to play in life too. True friends are the ones who will show guts to check you for wrongdoings, guide you to the right path, show you light when you feel there is no ray of hope left, support you at the time of crises when you are terribly in need on one, be there for you at one call, be it a big or small tension, they are the true philosopher and guide at all point of time.You will end up making, no doubt many friends in your life span but your younger days friends remains the best pals for sure as you have seen and gone through your good and bad times together in your journey of life. Your secrets, your wrongdoings, your actions and reactions remain so much fresh for years and years of your life span. These memories tend to take you back to those beautiful innocent moments spend together at that point of life. Those tend to become precious moments for the mind and heart.Now comes the second side of life, full of failure stories, hardships faced, numbers of attempts gone wrong, rising to frustration, anger, disappointments, low morale, feeling of disaster, why me, brewing of jealousy feeling, self-made scapegoat, self -pity feeling, looking for solace from friends more than the family, the list is unending for each one.Just Remember: Two situations can be neither compared nor equated. Few situations can be similar but not the entire chapter of the story be the ditto situation. Your story may be able to give some solace and temporary relief too but individuals need to work on for there problems and failures keeping in mind others experiences for better results for future results and outcome.Wise are those people who try to listen or read to the failure stories first to take a lesson not to repeat or commit the same mistakes done by them not by choice but due to circumstances at that particular point of time.Failures should not disappoint you in any way. They should be taken in the spirit to try again and again till you succeed in your mission. Failures should never disappoint you or make you feel small or regrettable as at least you made an attempt to try for something which others could not pick up the courage to do so. That’s your plus point not your negative by any chance. It’s you who have to believe in yourself and your actions and experiments, not others as they are your brainchild exploring ideas which need to be tried and tested by you as others may not even understand the concept you are looking for, as a final result. So, keep your mind calm, composed and focused and make sure you don’t get discouraged by other’s views and reactions very fast. This will help you to retain your strength and keep you more powerful and energetic to deliver the desired and expected results for sure.last_img read more

Dorian buffets Massachusetts after causing ‘catastrophic’ flooding in North Carolina’s Outer Banks

first_imgABC News(CAPE HATTERAS, N.C.) — Hurricane Dorian is lashing the Massachusetts coast as it continues its northward path, after making landfall Friday over Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. A tropical storm warning is in effect for Cape Cod and eastern Maine as the storm continues its trek up the eastern seaboard Saturday morning.Still a Category 1 storm, Dorian was expected to brush by Massachusetts’ Nantucket island with winds of 85 mph.Further north, Eastern Canada is bracing for dangerous storm surge and hurricane-force winds Saturday and Sunday as the storm makes its approach. Dorian is forecast to make landfall in Nova Scotia late Saturday before gradually weakening overnight into Sunday.Dorian struck North Carolina’s Outer Banks Friday as a Category 1 storm with sustained winds of 90 mph, battering the barrier islands with torrential rain, ferocious winds and dangerous floodwaters.The flooding stranded roughly 800 people on the Outer Banks’ hard-hit Ocracoke Island, where residents described the flooding as “catastrophic,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said.Leslie Lanier, who lives on Ocracoke Island, said some residents had to climb into their attics to escape the water, ABC Raleigh station WTVD reported.Crews flew to Ocracoke Island via helicopter Friday afternoon to begin evacuations.Among those rescued was a 79-year-old man who needed immediate attention for a medical issue, Cooper said.The helicopter crews will rescue anyone else who is hurt or who wants to be evacuated, the governor said. No deaths or serious injuries were reported on Friday in North Carolina.“Please continue to send prayers to the people of Ocracoke as they have a long road ahead,” the Hyde County Sheriff’s Office said.Meanwhile, Hatteras Island, about 35 miles away from Ocracoke Island, “is literally drowning … the flooding is insane,” said Outer Banks resident Sarah Ashley.Ashley evacuated inland but said her husband stayed behind to ride out the hurricane.At least four people died in the Southeast as a result of Dorian preparations, according to The Associated Press, including an 85-year-old man who fell off a ladder in North Carolina while prepping his home for the storm.At least 250,000 homes and businesses were without power across the Carolinas and Virginia on Friday as a result of the storm.Dorian was expected to dump as much as 15 inches of rainfall in some spots of North Carolina.The combination of downpours and storm surge as high as 7 feet could cause life-threatening flash floods, authorities warned.South Carolina has already seen more than 10 inches of rain since the storm barreled up the coast on Thursday.At least 20 tornadoes were reported in the Carolinas on Thursday. One tornado ripped through Emerald Isle, North Carolina, upending mobile homes and strewing debris across the roads.Another tornado was reported in Little River, South Carolina, where one resident told ABC Florence affiliate WPDE that they heard what sounded “like a large airplane or a large train coming through.”Before approaching the United States, Dorian slammed into the Bahamas on Sunday afternoon as a Category 5 hurricane, making the strongest Atlantic hurricane landfall on record.Officials say at least 43 people have died in the Bahamas due to Dorian, but the country’s health minister told a local radio station on Thursday that the final death count will be “staggering.”The storm hovered over the archipelago’s northern islands for nearly two days, flattening homes, submerging roads and flooding an international airport.“Everybody’s, like, in a state of shock right now. We lost everything,” one woman said. “So right now we’re in survival mode.”Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said Dorian left “generational devastation” across the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama, which are both in the archipelago’s northern region, east of southern Florida.At Treasure Cay International Airport in the Abaco Islands, hundreds of desperate people waited in the intense heat Friday to leave the island on a commercial flight.One man said he’d been waiting with his children for more than four hours.“For the first in my life I saw a dead body,” he told ABC News, as his children were shielded from the heat under an umbrella next to him. “There is no civilization no more.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The texts messages shown at the bond hearing, which Evans said contained “a ton of filth,” are the same that prosecutors wish to use as evidence, according to the court document.Prosecutors requested that a hearing be scheduled on the matter.Arbery, 25, was jogging in Brunswick, Georgia, on Feb. 23 when he was killed. Arbery tried to run for his life before he was struck by a car, shot and then called a racial slur by one of the suspects, prosecutors say.Both McMichaels and Bryan told authorities they thought Arbery was a suspect in a series of break-ins.

LTAs given flexibility on home-to-school transport funding, DfT confirms

first_imgThe Department for Transport (DfT) has written to local transport authorities (LTAs) and directors of childrens services for local authorities in England ahead of the return of schools next month.Flexibility in deciding where funding is spent means LTAs will be given discretion over where they procure additional vehicles for home-to-school and college transport.However, they will be required to nominate a dedicated individual responsible for securing additional home-to-school transport. That person must be confirmed to DfT by 28 August and their name made available to coach and bus operators in the area, as well as schools and education authorities.The letter supplements the previously issued guidance on managing capacity and demand when schools return in September to ensure the safeguarding of children when travelling to and from school.DfT confirms that LTAs will be given this flexibility to decide where funding is spent on home-to-school transport provided that ‘it supports transport to school or college for pupils of compulsory school age and students in 16-19 education’.last_img read more

Freed pilot Nadiya Savchenko calls Ukrainian lawmakers ‘lazy schoolchildren’

first_img“One gets the impression that lawmakers are like lazy schoolchildren who shirk their work,” Savchenko told reporters after her speech, according to a Reuters report.After returning to Kiev last week, Savchenko, who was elected in absentia as part of former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko’s Fatherland party, announced she would be willing to run for president. “Let’s put it this way: Ukrainians, if you need me to be the president, okay, I will be president,” she said. Also On POLITICO Freed Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko could seek presidency By David Stern Ukraine says Moscow agrees to release pilot Savchenko By Uliana Pavlova and Meg Hilling Freed Ukrainian pilot Nadia Savchenko could seek presidency By David Stern Ukrainian military pilot Nadiya Savchenko made a fiery first appearance in the Ukrainian parliament Tuesday, one week after she was released from a Russian prison.Draped in the Ukrainian flag and holding the flag of Crimea, Savchenko sang the national anthem and received a standing ovation, AFP reported. The 35-year-old became a national hero after she was captured by Russian forces while fighting separatist groups in eastern Ukraine in June 2014. She was sentenced to 22 years in prison for killing two Russian journalists, but was released in a prisoner swap last week after serving two years.“I have returned and I will not let you forget — you, the people who sit in these armchairs in parliament — about the boys who began laying down their lives for Ukraine on Maidan Square and continue dying today in the east,” she said.last_img read more
