How dove became a symbol of peace?

The dove has been a symbol of peace and love since long in Greek mythology, Aphrodite, the goddess of love, kept a dove as a pet. Later, Christians believed that the dove symbolized the Holy spirit. At Jesus’ baptism, the Holy spirit descended on jesus as a dove. According to Robert A. Schuller,the dove became a symbol of peace when Noah let a dove out of the Ark after the flood and it returned with an olive branch. This was regarded as God accepting peace overtures from humanity. More recently, artist Pablo Piscasso used a dove to symbolize peace. His painting of single dove became famous over the world when it was used on a poster for the World Peace Congress in 1949.

Beware of Free Key Chain in Malaysia petrol stations

Nowadays, anything can happen in Malaysia. Don’t ever accept anything from stranger

Dangerous key rings
PLEASE TELL YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS/CO-WORKERS!!!

There is a syndicate of criminals presenting themselves as sales promoters who are giving free key-rings holders at gas stations or parking lots.

The key ring has a tracking device chip which allows them to follow you.

If it has happened only in Malaysia it doesn’t mean it can’t happen in other parts of the world. It can happen anywhere and anyone can become a victim… Beware and be alert.

In weakness, we find strength

Sometimes your biggest weakness can become your strength. Take, for example, the story of a 10 year old boy who decided to take up self- defense classes despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in car accident. That boy started this martial art classes and within 3 months he could not understand why his master taught him only one move. The boy asked the master shouldn’t I be learning more moves? This is the only move you know, but this only move you’ll need to know replied his master the boy kept training . Several months later the master took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult but after sometime, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by this success the boy was in the finals. This time his opponent was bigger, stronger and more experienced. For a while the boy seemed to be lost. Concerned about the boy the referee called time-out. He was about to stop the match when the master intervened.

No, the master insisted,” Let him continue.”

Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly the boy used his move to pin him.. The boy had won the match and the tournament. On the way back home, the boy and his master discussed every move made by the boy in every match. Then the boy asked what was really on his mind.

“Master, how did I win the tournament with only one move?” “You won for two reasons the master answered. “First you’ve almost mastered the most difficult throws in all of the self- defense. Second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm.”

The boy’s biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.

Why I started Fight Against Abuse

Lots of women and children are being abused in some way or the other in every part of the world. I personally feel that the percentage of women and children being abused is on an increase. In India every day on news we all get to hear about cases relating to rape, molestation, eve teasing, dowry death, harassment etc. We all have to work to stop this evil menace.

Keeping all this in mind , I have created Fight Against Abuse Cause ( FAAC )   on Facebook and @fight_abuse on Twitter because I wanted to create awareness about the trauma faced women and children who are being abused. I would like to work with women and children who are being abused and help them over come the trauma they have gone through or may still be going through .I would like to make this my career option as this cause is very close to my heart and I personally feel that enough is not being done to help these victims of abuse.

Even when I am facing discouragement and resistance from some individuals I will not give up till I succeed. If anyone who is interested in being a part of this cause is free to join us to make the fight stronger. Please feel free to leave a story you have read or heard, an experience you have gone through in your life or any sort of information you would like to share regarding the subject.

Brain Damaging Habits

No Breakfast:

People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

OverEating:

it causes hardening of brain arteries, leading to decrease in mental power.

Smoking:

It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to alzheimer disease.

High Sugar Consumption:

Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

Air pollution:

The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

Sleep deprivation:

Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

Head  covered while sleeping:

Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

Working your brain during illness.

Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

Lacking in stimulating thoughts:

Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

Talking rarely

Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of brain.

Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4.oo am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don’t sleep late.

Never Give Up

One day a young lady was driving along with her father.
They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, What should I do?”
He said “keep driving”. Cars began to pull over to the side, the storm was
Getting worse.

“What should I do.” The young lady asked?

“Keep driving,” her father replied.

On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over.
She told her dad, “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is
Terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”

Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”

Now the storm was terrible, but she never stopped driving, and soon she
Could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on
Dry land, and the sun came out.

Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”

She said “But why now?”

He said “When you get out, look back at all the people that gave up and are
Still in the storm, because you never gave up your storm is now over.

This is a testimony for anyone who is going through “hard times”.

Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up. You don’t have
To…if you keep going, soon your storm will be over and the sun will shine
Upon your face again.

This story touched me! I hope it touched you, too !!!

Be Careful !! Must Read!: Torchlights (Stungun)

FOR YOUR INFORMATION, latest weapon used by robbers.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. NO MATTER HOW BUSY YOU ARE, YOU MUST GIVE YOURSELF AT LEAST 3 MINUTES TO READ THIS!

I just thought to let know what my doctor told me recently. I don’t think she was lying and neither am I, so please pass this on to your friends. Her clinic is in SS2 and you know how congested that place is.

One morning a few months ago in broad daylight, a girl was getting into her car when a few men approached her with what looked like a torchlight. Quite harmless looking. They pressed the “torchlight” into her back and immediately she went limp and very pale. So she wouldn’t be able to fight back, they slashed her thigh with a parang and sped away in her car.

There were many people around and they quickly took her to the nearest clinic which was my doctor’s clinic. There were two doctors at that time and they managed to stitch up her wound but the girl remained pulse-less and still pale as paper. No pulse, no BP (blood pressure). Just like dead.

My doctors were confused as to how one wound on the thigh made the girl almost like dead? They managed to revive her and save her life.

After some checking around, the doctors found out what actually happened was that the girl was made unconscious not by a torchlight but actually a high voltage weapon. I forgot how many watts she mentioned. 1000? Anyway, it was high enough to kill a person by electrocution.

It seems this weapon is from China. It’s not rampant in Malaysia…yet; but with this thing, a person can rob, rape, kill, kidnap, and practically do anything to you. My doctor said that if the girl weren’t taken to the clinic immediately she would have died because there was no pulse on her.

So please just beware of your surroundings, if anybody is lurking around with a torchlight-thingy and approaches you, just scream or run away. Better to be embarrassed than ZAPPED and fried, right? Take care.
