sweet Britain???

LONDON: All foreigners wanting to settle in Britain will have to pass a compulsory "Britishness'' test from next April under plans to further restrict immigration. Currently, the test is compulsory only for those who want British citizenship while others get a permanent residency status almost automatically if they have lived here for up to five years. Announcing the new rules, Immigration Minister Liam Byrne said it was "essential'' that those who wished to live in Britain permanently had a good grasp of English language and the British way of life. "It is essential that migrants wishing to live in the U.K. permanently recognise that there are responsibilities that go with this. Having a good grasp of English is essential in order for them to play a full role in society and properly integrate into our communities,'' he said. Migrant groups have protested the Government move. A spokesman for the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immig…

Indians make best husbands for Russians,! wass up Americans?

Among foreigners, Indians make best husbands for Russian women, as they are "more open" and share an emotional relationship with family, says the country's leading feminist intellectual, Maria Arbatova.

"Out of all the foreigners, the Indian men are the best for Russian women since they are brought up in a different way," the Russian playwright and poetess said.

"The western culture worships the superman and for an Indian male it is not a shame to cry. They are more emotional and have a more open and emotional relationship with the family," she said in an interview to the Russian Agrarian Gazeta. Arbatova, a living symbol of feminist movement of post-Communist Russia, had married twice and is living with an Indian. Recently, she published The Taste of India.

She became a household name in the 1990s in Russia with her feminist television programme I Can Do It Myself. Since 1996, she heads the club of Women Meddling in Politics, to seek a greater role for …

just a small piece of black or color cloth

The question of what women wear on their heads has once again become an issue in the media. Does a small piece of black or color cloth really warrant this much of discussion, especially by those know nothing about its history but claim the right to decide its future? The issue is not whether or not one should wear a veil or cover one’s head. I think it is something, which needs to be left to both the individual person as well as society. Veiling or covering of one’s head is both a social and a cultural issue.British Prime Minister Tony Blair said waded into the "burqa'' controversy by endorsing the view that the veil worn by Muslim women was a "mark of separateness'' and an obstacle to integration.After Afghan war for the press, the removal of the veil/burqa became an irresistible metaphor of that new freedom: "Veil Is Lifted in Mazar-e Sharif; New Freedoms Embraced as City Emerges From Taliban Rule" (Washington Post, ); "Women Shedding Cloak o…

Childhood Obesity

Dr. Mercola's Comment:Considering that 30 percent of children in the United States are overweight and only 23 percent of parents polled in a recent study restrict the television their kids watch or the video games their kids play at all, the list is a helpful tool in the fight against the obesity epidemic.Like most problems in life, preventing childhood obesity is far easier than treating it, although much of the success of prevention depends on parental involvement, and communication is the key.You will not only need to set appropriate guidelines and talk to your children about nutrition and why what they are doing is so important, you will need to take the time necessary to create nutritious meals and snacks for them to eat. Perhaps even more importantly, you will need to act as a good role model for them. After all, it is completely unfair to your children to ask them not to eat things they late…

Good Recommendation from CDC

All patients aged 13 to 64 should be screened for HIV routinely,according to new guidelines from the CDC. Nearly 250,000 Americansare estimated to have undiagnosed HIV.The key aspects of the new recommendations, which are focusedexclusively on healthcare settings, include:-- All adult and teen patients should be screened, regardlessof risk.-- The screening approach should be voluntary "opt out" ratherthan "opt-in."-- Specific HIV pretest counseling and separate, written informedconsent should not be necessary, but should be incorporatedin general consent for medical care (state and local laws allowing).The guidelines also include steps to further reduce perinataltransmission. Pregnant women in high-prevalence areas, as wellas those considered to be at high risk, should receive a secondHIV test in the third trimester. Jurisdictions with high HIVprevalence among women as of 2004 were: Alabama, Connecticut,Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illino…

Salad lovers at risk !?

According to CNN.Com, the e-coli outbreak has spread to twenty states.Federal health officials say an outbreak of E. coli has spread to 20 states and sickened 94 people.The news prompted health officials to warn the public that even if you wash the spinach, you still could be at risk.Sober warnings for salad lovers came from federal health officials Friday as they struggled to pinpoint a multistate E. coli outbreak that killed one person and sickened dozens more.Bagged spinach -- the triple-washed, cello-packed kind sold by the hundreds of millions of pounds each year -- is the suspected source of the bacterial outbreak, Food and Drug Administration officials said.The FDA warned people nationwide not to eat the spinach. Washing won't get rid of the tenacious bug, though thorough cooking can kill it. Supermarkets across the country pulled spinach from shelves, and consumers tossed out the leafy green. one of my friends she eats spinach direct bag to mouth, I never saw her…

12 Percent of Americans May Have Diabetes by 2050

Diabetes rates are expected to more than double from 2005 to 2050, from 5.6 percent to 12 percent of the population, the most recent estimates suggest. That means that in about 44 years, over 48 million people in this country would be affected -- and rates could go even higher if obesity rates continue to rise.Diabetes Care September 2006Yahoo News September 8, 2006

Can you find your own husband alone?

Image
One of my friends got me this article. It’s an amazing true story by Sarita James "Mom, Dad, Let Me Find My Own Husband "but i have lots of questions, lets see:

how much responsibility parents should take to find a suitable husband for their daughter? How do the teens and young adults respond and respect their parents role in the relationship? How do they react; with frustration, joyful, trust, respect, adjustment, sacrifice or Rejection?, where do you stand when your parents choose your bride or groom?

Can you find your own husband alone? are you capable ? if you are, why after 2-3 years of dating do you break up? is it like a game or you want to have experience with another guy or girl? one mother asked me how much guidance/involvement we parents should give to our children. many parents are afraid to be involve in their own children's relationships. what are we men/women really looking in relationship? do you have commitment? do you consider that suitable men is, someo…

'Dating' game at work is very dangerous

Q: I have been "dating" a guy at work for about three years. We are both married, so of course everyone gossips about us. The problem is he is very popular with other co-workers, and I don't feel I get as much attention from him as I used to. He says he cares about me and doesn't want to end the relationship, but I don't know what to do. When I try to put some distance between us, he just acts like it doesn't matter and it makes me crazy. Should I break it off?

Lonely at Work

A: For starters, let's be honest. You and your colleague are not dating. You're having an affair. If you were dating, you could ask him over to your house.
Close working relationships can easily become romantic, because every work environment is a little world unto itself. Co-workers not only share goals, problems, pressures and successes, but also have a common group of friends and acquaintances. When both parties have spouses, a workplace affair allows them to create a Fantasylan…

Being set up for war in the Middle East

http://www.antiwar.com/roberts/?articleid=9317Evangelical "Christians" are part of the propaganda show. Three thousand of them, under the lead of the Rev. John C. Hagee, are heading to Washington for a "Washington/Israel summit" to demand, needlessly, that the neocon Bush regime show "stronger support for Israel."
It is difficult to see how Bush could show any stronger support without using the U.S. military to assist Israel in its attacks, which is, of course, what the "Christian" Rev. Hagee intends when he declares: "There's a new Hitler in the Middle East [he doesn't mean Bush or Olmert]. The only way he will be stopped will be by a preemptive military strike in Iran."
Present at Rev. Hagee's "Washington/Israel Summit" will be Israel's former Minister of Defense, Lt. Gen. Moshe Ya'alon, Israeli Ambassador Daniel Ayalon, Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, Republican Senators Sam Brownback …

Mumbai back on track

Just 12 hours after seven serial blasts left a trail of death and woes, Mumbai moved towards normality on Wednesday. Even as the day broke over a city that has still to recover from Tuesday terror, trains began running on the very tracks where bombs ripped through carriages. And office goers, school and college students and workers made their way to different parts of the city.
No one can make India kneel: Manmohan
He said none could come in the path of India's progress. "The wheels of our economy will move on. India will continue to walk tall, and with confidence."
The Prime Minister was full of admiration for the people of Mumbai. "Mumbai stands tall once again as the symbol of a united India. An inclusive India." Dr. Singh assured the nation that "the United Progressive Alliance will do whatever is required to deal with the challenge at hand. We will win this war against terror. Nothing will break our resolve."

“Why can’t we be just people?”

"Why can't we be just people?" Do you hear what you say? When did we ever question your right to be considered people? Do you question mine? I know what you think you say. You want me to consider myself not Native, not Cree, not Salish, but a person, absent of nationality or racial heritage. All of us just people, without difference. You fail to see your own hypocrisy. In the same breath, you pick up a guitar and teach European modern folk songs to all the children, but nowhere do European children learn the folk music of my children or any other nationality. Such sameness amounts to everyone's obliteration but your own. I know we were supposed to have vanished by now. We do not apologize for our inability to do that. Not only are we still here, but some of us are amazingly intact. One hundred years ago General Custer's edict was to kill every man, woman, child and dog at Wounded Knee.

Good Catholics Use Condoms

http://www.commonwealmagazine.org/article.php3?id_article=1610
As a young physician, I often second-guess myself. In practicing medicine such self-criticism is warranted, even obligatory, because a wrong diagnosis can lead to misguided therapy and may end in death. After working at a Catholic hospital in the small sub-Saharan country of Swaziland, however, there is one diagnosis I pronounce with uncharacteristic certitude: AIDS. The typical patient is a young woman between eighteen and thirty years of age. She is wheeled into the examining room in a hospital chair or dragged in, supported by her sister, aunt, or brother. She is frequently delirious; her face is gaunt; her limbs look like desiccated twigs. Surprisingly, the young woman is already a mother many times over, yet she will not live to see her children grow up. More shocking still, she is mar…

BIBLE as TEXT BOOK

They're talking about adding the bible as a text book to the high school curriculum in Georgia. Georgia may OK Bible as textbook
I think it's a great idea. The bible will be taught objectively without any emphasis on religious beliefs. There is so much wisdom in the bible. There's lots of good stuff for children's edification. I think the dirty parts ought to be censored though.

Kids need to know just how much God loves them and looks out for them. They need to know that if they follow the Lord, there is a good chance that God will not smite them, unless of course they live in tornado alley or the hurricane belt where God smites everyone for the sins of those heathens in blue states.

What is Love?

Last week I joined a group of people are talking about what is Love?  Some said "Love is patient, Love is kind. It is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick tempered, it does not brood over injury. It bears all things believes all things, hopes all thing, endures all things, Love never fails... so faith, hope, love remain- these three; but the greatest of these is love."

In my head am asking my self what is really Love?  is that just a memory to take with you?, we are after all  just two groups of peoples as Men and Women.  Most we men go to bars  throw money at them and fall in love. There was no touching allowed in the bars. The men came to the bars not so much for lust as for love; the bar girls' most favored body part was their ear. They earned the men's love by listening: to their problems with their wives, their bosses; to the small and epic adventures of their metropolitan lives.

indicates that the Senate Republicans are basically moving toward to passing the earned adjustment of status for the illegal aliens, but the leaders are scheduled to introduce three compromise options for the eligibility: (1) EWI (Entered Without Inspection or Border Crossers) vs. Overstays (Entered legally but overstayed); (2) Long resident over 5 years vs. Recent arrivals; and (3) Adjustment of status within the U.S. for some illegal aliens vs. Application for reentry to the U.S. at the border for the some illegal aliens. It thus appears that the Senators are likely to give credit to the illagal aliens to the longer overstayed illegal aliens over the border crossers. It is interesting how the Senators will iron …
