Critic reviews Publishers Weekly In this optimistic guide to finding love, noted psychotherapist Page rejects the dating mantras commonly found in magazines and dating guides–how to come across as more confident, how to look better, how to get more dates–in favor of a more grounded approach to finding intimacy. He aims to help readers discover their own “Core Gifts” and start relationships with others who value those qualities. Page suggests that such help is necessary because people so often conceal their most valuable traits in order to preempt criticism and rejection. He goes on to offer suggestions about how people can find their ideal romantic partner, which range from tapping into one’s pool of connections to acting with bravery and honesty in everyday situations. Readers will find Page’s advice somewhat self-evident, but that’s in many ways the beauty of it–intimacy can’t be achieved through any magic pill, but rather through plenty of introspection, hard work, and openness. What readers will gain most from this self-help manual is Page’s sincere belief in love and his conviction that loving partnership really can be achieved. Myrsini Stephanides, Carol Mann Agency.

History Crash Course Now we turn to the war of the Church against Muslims in Europe. This war went on for quite some time in fits and starts — from the time the Muslim Moors arrived in Spain in It took a long time for the Christians to vanquish them. The first Muslim stronghold to fall was Toledo in ; the last was Granada in As the Christian re-conquest gained momentum, Jews in these newly re-conquered Christians territories began to suffer from increasingly harsher persecutions.
In their blood-thirsty vengeance against the Muslims, the Spanish Christians included the Jews, whom they put in the category of infidels. In 14th century Barcelona, for example, the whole Jewish community was murdered by a rioting mob.

In my decades of practice as a psychotherapist, this is the insight that has inspired me most: Our deepest wounds surround our greatest gifts. I’ve found that the very qualities we’re most ashamed of, the ones we keep trying to reshape or hide, are in fact the key to finding real love.

Covey The death of a personal development icon was announced last week when Dr. Covey spent his life teaching principles of corporate and personal effectiveness, change and growth. This post is both a tribute to the man who seemed to live impressively close to what he espoused and a tribute to the ideas he so tirelessly taught.
Developing a personality or character trait. But no matter the reason or the kind, all change has a starting point. We are part divine. Relationships are therefore sacred things, souls intertwined, spirit touching spirit. To touch a person at that level, then, is to rise to the level of the spiritual. It is to ascend to the higher regions of human potential. It is to awaken inner potential to heavenly possibility.
It has always therefore been a very sacred moment for me when I post an article or reply to a comment or respond to an email. Those sacred moments of mutual inspiration become the turning points in life. They are pivot points, on which sudden epiphanies or persistent motivation prompts us to begin the process of permanent change. The more we expose ourselves to inspirational material, the more likely we will have those life-changing insights in the first place.

This has changed over the past few decades because of the dramatic advances in digital imaging technologies and computer power. One of the best examples of this was the computer artistry of Ray Downing, whose digital re-creation of Jesus based on the Shroud was documented in “The Real Face of Jesus” program that appeared on the History Channel. In the past few years, digital artists around the world have been able to render their own interpretations of how Jesus may have appeared based on the Shroud and these show up from time to time on the internet.
However, throughout all those years, not one artist has attempted to create an interpretation of what Mary, Mother of Jesus looked like based on the Shroud image. Until now, that is.

Click for larger view The above photograph shows Ron London and Bill Mottern setting up their low power x-ray machine, the same device that was at least in part responsible for the seizing of all of STURP’s equipment by Italian customs upon its arrival in Italy back in The wooden crate that housed the x-ray machine had a radiation sticker on the outside, and that apparently raised enough concern to cause the customs officials to seize everything and refuse to release it upon our arrival.
We arrived a week prior to the scheduled start of our examination while the Shroud was still on public display in order to unpack, set up and calibrate all our instruments and equipment so we would be fully prepared when the Shroud was brought to us. Unfortunately, it took five and a half days before the equipment was finally released so we had to work around the clock for the remaining 36 hours to prepare everything for our testing. We were still finishing our preparations when the Shroud was brought into the examination room, a full hour and a half ahead of schedule!
In spite of the pressure and stressful circumstances, everyone pulled together, worked as a team and we got the job done! I wanted to do something special for today’s update and spent a lot of time thinking about it. Since we first went online on January 21, , we have included a Bibliography of STURP’s published papers, but were unable to publish the papers themselves due to copyright restrictions. Considering the historic importance of the work, that has always been one of my biggest frustrations, especially now on our 40th anniversary.
However, in the ownership of this website and all of my Shroud photographs and other materials was legally transferred to our c 3 non-profit organization, STERA, Inc. Since we provide the information for educational purposes and are effectively the single largest Shroud resource on the internet, we believe we now fall well within the Fair Usage clause of the copyright law. Furthermore, there is no charge to access any of the content on this website nor do we permit any type of advertising so we derive no commercial benefits from their publication.

Twitter Advertisement Do online dating websites work? Differences Between Dating Apps Tinder vs. Differences Between Dating Apps With so many different dating apps out there, how do you know which one is the right one for you? Don’t worry, here’s a breakdown of the four most popular choices. To explore this topic, I pulled aside two individuals who I knew were hunting for a long-term relationship using online dating websites, and asked them about their experiences with the services.
The two services used by these individuals were OKCupid and Match. What I learned from carrying out an interview of a female and the interview of a male trying to dig into this intriguing subject was that using the Internet for dating is equally painful for men and for women, but for very different reasons.
No…online dating involves just cold, shallow text. As far as a guy is concerned, women have it made. The Origins And Misuse of the Term Have you noticed the word “mansplaining” appearing a lot lately online? Are you not sure what it means, or why people seem to be upset about it?
