Elder Paisios: Struggle with all your power to gain Paradise. . . .

Human existence, both physical and especially psychological, are compromised in the absence of the challenge and struggle to overcome the negative aspects of our natural beings: aspira ab astra, is the only way keep our minds and souls same, since it is much easier to prevent a fall, than to suffer its consequences. It is true we lean from that, but without influencing others, what did we actualy achieved? To believe that anything can be refuted, forgiven, is so detrimental to our nature, and while in a child it is synonymous with fear of punishment, in an adult is the rational set of thoughts, that keep one at bay, and safe within ones short life: Are you ready to find out that your actions, were not really forgotten?

Apart from the medium of collage, for which he is well known, Ernst developed other devices to express his fantastic vision, like frottage, in which a drawing tool is rubbed over paper laid on a textured surface, and grattage, a technique consisting of what? More… Discuss

“Teflon Don” Hit with Charges that Finally Stick (1992)

For years, John “the Teflon Don” Gotti, the dapper NYC boss of the Gambino crime family, got away with murder—literally. Criminal charges slid off him time after time thanks to his long reach, which extended to witnesses and jurors alike. But Gotti’s “luck” ran out in 1992. After a nearly two-month trial, he was convicted of racketeering and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. The FBI had finally gotten its man. How had prosecutors managed to get the charges to stick?More… Discuss

Previous studies indicate that cocoa flavanols improve blood pressure, cholesterol, artery health, and other cardiologic measures. But don’t go gorging yourself on candy bars just yet; the flavanols are often destroyed when cocoa is processed. Thus, flavanol capsules rather than chocolate bars are the preferred delivery method and will be used throughout the course of the four-year study. More… Discuss
