The Poet: Arlene Gay Levine, "The Road"

*"The Road"* "Here is the road: the light comes and goes then returns again. Be gentle with your fellow travelers as they move through the world of stone and stars whirling with you yet every one alone. The road waits. Do not ask questions but when it invites you to dance at daybreak, say yes. Each step is the journey; a single note the song." ~ Arlene Gay Levine

Paulo Coelho, "Hagakure (Hidden by the Leaves)"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 minute ago
*"Hagakure (Hidden by the Leaves)"* by Paulo Coelho "After serving as a samurai for many years, Yamamoto Tsunetomo (1659- 1719) decided to share everything he had learned with one of his disciples, Tsuramoto Tashiro. The outcome of these conversations became the book called "Hagakure (Hidden by the Leaves)," which withstood the passage of time. Rereading his text, I realized that the great part of the teachings it holds could be applied to our daily lives. A samurai, as we know, was a warrior with a code of conduct (known as bushido), based on three important principles: (a) discipl... more »

Khanna, a corporate Democrat eager to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits to lower the tax rates for his wealthy supporters, sounds like a Republican.

The Wall St. Journal for Oct. 14 says that the reason third world countries lack enough health workers is because Canada, the US and Europe encourage health workers in those countries to emigrate to them.

Child Porn the new tip of the morality spear!

In my province Ontario the last time they had a big sweep there where 15000 people who looked at child porn in the scope of the investigation. I believe child porn rings exist at the highest levels. The best practice is a simple two pronged approach. First people who actually have a sexual act with a child will be castrated. Not chemical castration the blade.

One of the best things about sweet chili sauce is its versatility. It's especially useful when you only have a few ingredients on hand, but still want to make something delicious.

Paulo Coelho, “The Fire of Friendship”

*“The Fire of Friendship”* by Paulo Coelho “A man called Ali is in need of money and asks his boss to help him out. His boss sets him a challenge: if he can spend all night on the top of a mountain, he will receive a great reward; if he fails, he will have to work for free. When he left the shop, Ali noticed that an icy wind was blowing. He felt afraid and decided to ask his best friend, Aydi, if he thought he was mad to accept the wager. After considering the matter for a moment, Aydi answered: ‘Don’t worry, I’ll help you. Tomorrow night, when you’re sitting on top of the mountain... more »

Chet Raymo, "On Miracles"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"On Miracles"* by Chet Raymo "Saint Augustine was a complex fellow, both loving the world and hating it, and he bequeathed something of that love/hate to Roman Catholicism in particular and to Christianity in general. I have seldom had good words for him in these posts, preferring instead the more enthusiastic embrace of nature that characterized his Celtic nemesis Pelagius. But then there are these words from Augustine's City of God: "Nor are those to be listened to who say that the invisible God does not perform visible miracles; for even according to them he made the world, whi... more »

"Emerging Courageous: Walking through Your Fear"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"Emerging Courageous: Walking through Your Fear"* by The DailyOm "Frequently, in walking through our fear, we discover that the strength of our fright was out of sync with reality. The situations, activities, and individuals that frighten us remain static. Their relative intensity does not change. Fear, on the other hand, self-magnifies. It is when you are afraid and envisioning all that might go wrong that the energy underlying your fear grows. A tiny flicker of anxiety can easily develop into a terror that manifests itself physically and eventually paralyzes you into inaction. T... more »

The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 1 day ago
For people of a certain age and background Bob Dylan's early song "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" (1963) is life altering. It tells of a wealthy man who kills a servant and, through his power and wealth, escapes justice. The song tells a true story - or that's what I believed until quiet recently. The song shaped my thinking about power inequality and the law for as long as I can remember. The lyrics are: "William Zanzinger killed poor Hattie Carroll With a cane that he twirled around his diamond ring finger At a Baltimore hotel society gath'rin' And the cops were called in... more »

In total ethnocentric, self-serving fashion, Americans didn’t worry about Ebola until a man died from it in the United States. Now people are reacting as if Ebola will bring about the end of the world by next Tuesday (or is it Thursday?) It ought not to have happened this way. We’ve known what it is from earlier outbreaks; we even waited and watched as it spread beyond the usual limited areas, until the numbers should have told us that, this time, it could mushroom into something huge and have... more »

*C.I.A.

The continuing C.I.A. effort to train Syrian rebels is just the latest example of an American president becoming enticed by the prospect of using the spy agency to covertly arm and train rebel groups. An internal C.I.A. study has found that it rarely works. The still-classified review, one of several C.I.A. studies commissioned in 2012 an... more »

Appeal route determined by entire Order and not merely parts appealed

The route an appeal takes depends critically on the nature of the order appealed. So appeals may, or may not, go to Divisional Court depending on whether they are for specific payments of money. What is an order would go to the Court of Appeal if the order was appealed in full but the parts appealed would, standing alone, go to Divisional Court? Hanisch v. McKean, 2014 ONCA 698 holds the entire order, not just the passages appealed, determines the appeal route: [19] The specific question raised by the respondent concerns the meaning of "final order" as it appears in ss. 6 an... more »
