Woman With Dry Lips Mistakenly Uses Super Glue To Moisten Lips, Glues Them Shut

A 64-year-old woman in New Zealand accidentally glued her lips shut when she mistakenly used super glue rather than lip balm to moisten her lips.
The 64-year-old, from Dunedin, reportedly woke-up at 11 p.m., Thursday night, and grabbed what she thought was her medicine. What she did not know was that she applied SUPER GLUE onto her lips rather than the medicine, and by the time she realized what she did it was too late.
The woman’s lips were glued shut and when she called for emergency assistance, all that she could do was grunt. The operators initially thought that the woman was being held captive, but when police arrived at her home, they found that she had sealed her lips shut!!
She was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released. Lesson learned, always turn on a light at night when you are reaching for anything. You just never know what may be laying around your bed in the middle of the night.

A couple got married in the nude with strangers as their guests after disapproving family refused to attend the naturist wedding.

Jeff Adams, 54, and partner Sue Adams, 47, tied the knot in their birthday suits and say they weren’t disappointed that relatives stayed away.

Sue wore only a veil, blue garter and white sandals while Jeff bared all apart from flipflops and a floral buttonhole stuck onto his bare chest.

British-born Jeff Adams and New Zealand partner Sue were married in a heart-shaped garden in a naturist resort Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, in April.

And the grandparents-of-six said they were determined to have a naturist wedding – even though it meant the the unusual ceremony was held in front of complete strangers.

Mum-of-three and bakery worker Sue, who lives in the Northern Gold Coast in Queensland, said: “This was my chance to have the wedding I wanted, because the first time I got married I hated the day.

“For me it is supposed to be one of the happiest days of your life, but it wasn’t because it wasn’t the wedding I wanted. I was so uncomfortable and it was not my perfect day at all.

“It didn’t upset me in the slightest that family and friends didn’t come. For many years my life revolved around doing and being and saying what everyone else wanted me to and I’ve grown out of that now.

“The wedding was all about Jeff and I and our relationship and that was how it should be. If people didn’t like it, we really didn’t care.

“It was definitely a huge weight off my mind not to worry about having to find a wedding dress. I’m not a big shopper so as long as I had the ring I didn’t care about anything else – and not having to buy a dress was definitely a bonus.

“It was a beautiful day.”
Dad-of-one and metal and fabrication worker Jeff added: “Apart from a couple of friends and the couple who run the resort there was no one there we knew – nearly everyone was a stranger or just an acquaintance.

“But we were quite happy with that – we didn’t want all the traditional big wedding rigmarole, we wanted to do something for us.

“We were quite open with our friends and families about how it would work and told them they could come if they wanted to. It was their choice which we completely understood.

“Despite none of our family attending, we were perfectly happy with our wedding the way it was.

“We had both had similar wedding experiences before where they were completely governed by what family wanted and we wanted to do something for ourselves this time.

“All the reaction to our wedding when we’ve told people has been positive – we haven’t had any negative reactions at all. People did want to come but were too scared of their own bodies.

“The first time I went nude it was a bit freaky and the hardest part is getting naked in the first place, but once you do it, it feels perfectly normal and natural.”
New Zealand-born Sue and Jeff, who was born in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, met online in 2015 and discovered they were living just 20 minutes apart in rural Queensland.

After three and a half months together they visited a nudist beach together Byron Bay, New South Wales, before holidaying at a naturist resort in Europe, Croatia, in June 2016.

And when Jeff proposed during a trip to Eagle View Naturist Retreat in Rockmount, Toowoomba, in October 2016 they decided to have their wedding there.

The couple tied the knot this April and apart from several friends and the couple who owned the retreat they knew none of the attendees.
Jeff and Sue stayed in the buff for the duration of the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception and even had nude cake toppers crafted out of fondant icing.
A licensed marriage celebrant – Mandeep Sandhu from Gum Leaf Weddings – carried out the legally-binding ceremony and was the only guest in attendance to stay clothed.

The couple, who are now planning a trip to the USA this summer for their honeymoon, are also part-time nudists around their home.

1876: Alexander Graham Bell makes the first telephone call in his Boston laboratory, summoning his assistant, Thomas A. Watson, from the next room.

The Scottish-born Bell had a lifelong interest in the nature of sound. He was born into a family of speech instructors, and his mother and his wife both had hearing impairments. While ostensibly working in 1875 on a device to send multiple telegraph signals over the same wire by using harmonics, he heard a twang.

That led him to investigate whether his electrical apparatus could be used to transmit the sound of a human voice. Bell’s journal, now at the Library of Congress, contains the following entry for March 10, 1876:

I then shouted into M [the mouthpiece] the following sentence: “Mr. Watson, come here — I want to see you.” To my delight he came and declared that he had heard and understood what I said.

I asked him to repeat the words. He answered, “You said ‘Mr. Watson — come here — I want to see you.’” We then changed places and I listened at S [the speaker] while Mr. Watson read a few passages from a book into the mouthpiece M. It was certainly the case that articulate sounds proceeded from S. The effect was loud but indistinct and muffled.

Watson’s journal, however, says the famous quote was: “Mr. Watson come here I want you.”

That disagreement, though, is trifling compared to the long controversy over whether Bell truly invented the telephone. Another inventor, Elisha Gray, was working on a similar device, and recent books claim that Bell not only stole Gray’s ideas, but may even have bribed a patent examiner to let him sneak a look at Gray’s filing.

After years of litigation, Bell’s patents eventually withstood challenges from Gray and others — perhaps by right, perhaps by virtue of bigger backers and better barristers. In that respect, the controversy recalls the patent battle over the telegraph and foreshadows later squabbles over the automobile, the airplane, the spreadsheet, online shopping carts, web-auction software, and the look and feel of operating systems.

One thing we know for sure: Mr. Watson was at work that day in Bell’s lab. The telephone call did not interrupt his dinner with a special offer for home repairs or timeshare vacations in Florida.

Your past history and all of your hurts are no longer here in your physical reality

Forgiving others is essential for spiritual growth. Your experience of someone who has hurt you, while painful, is now nothing more that a thought or feeling that you carry around. These thoughts of resentment, anger, and hatred represent slow, debilitating energies that will dis-empower you if you continue to let these thoughts occupy space in your head. If you could release them, you would know more peace.

Below I share how to forgive someone who has hurt you in 15 steps:

Step 1: Move On to the Next Act
Your past history and all of your hurts are no longer here in your physical reality. Don’t allow them to be here in your mind, muddying your present moments. Your life is like a play with several acts. Some of the characters who enter have short roles to play, others, much larger. Some are villains and others are good guys. But all of them are necessary, otherwise they wouldn’t be in the play.Embrace them all, and move on to the next act.

Step 2: Reconnect to Spirit
Make a new agreement with yourself to always stay connected to Spirit even when it seems to be the most difficult thing to do. If you do this, you will allow whatever degree of perfect harmony that your body was designed for to proliferate. Turn your hurts over to God, and allow Spirit to flow through you.

Your new agreement with reality in which you’ve blended your physical self and your personality with your spiritual God-connected self will begin to radiate a higher energy of love and light. Wherever you go, others will experience the glow of your God consciousness, and disharmony and disorder and all manner of problems simply will not flourish in your presence. Become “an instrument of thy peace,” as St. Francis desires in the first line of his famous prayer.

Step 3: Don’t Go to Sleep Angry
Each night as I drift off to sleep, I adamantly refuse to use this precious time to review anything that I do not want to be reinforced in the hours of being immersed in my subconscious mind. I choose to impress upon my subconscious mind my conception of myself as a Divine creator in alignment with the one mind. I reiterate my I ams, which I have placed in my imagination, and I remember that my slumber will be dominated by my last waking concept of myself. I am peaceful, I am content, I am love, and I attract only to myself those who are in alignment with my highest ideals of myself.

This is my nightly ritual, always eschewing any temptation to go over any fear of unpleasantness that my ego might be asking me to review. I assume the feeling in my body of those I am statements already fulfilled, and I know that I’m allowing myself to be programmed while asleep, for the next day I rise knowing that I am a free agent.

In sleep man impresses the subconscious mind with his conception of himself. — Neville Goddard

Step 4: Switch the Focus from Blaming Others to Understanding Yourself
Whenever you’re upset over the conduct of others, take the focus off those you’re holding responsible for your inner distress. Shift your mental energy to allowing yourself to be with whatever you’re feeling — let the experience be as it may, without blaming others for your feelings. Don’t blame yourself either! Just allow the experience to unfold and tell yourself that no one has the power to make you uneasy without your consent, and that you’re unwilling to grant that authority to this person right now.

Tell yourself that you are willing to freely experience your emotions without calling them “wrong” or needing to chase them away. In this way, you’ve made a shift to self-mastery. It’s important to bypass blame, and even to bypass your desire to understand the other person; instead, focus on understanding yourself.
By taking responsibility for how you choose to respond to anything or anyone, you’re aligning yourself with the beautiful dance of life. By changing the way you choose to perceive the power that others have over you and you will see a bright new world of unlimited potential for yourself and you will know instantly how to forgive and let go of anything.

Step 5: Avoid Telling People What to Do
Avoid thoughts and activities that involve telling people who are perfectly capable of making their own choices what to do. In your family, remember that you do not own anyone. The poet Kahlil Gibran reminds you:

Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you . . .

This is always true. In fact, disregard any inclination to dominate in all of your relationships. Listen rather than expound. Pay attention to yourself when you’re having judgmental opinions and see where self-attention takes you. When you replace an ownership mentality with one of allowing, you’ll begin to see the true unfolding of the Tao in yourself and other people. From that moment on, you’ll be free of frustration with those who don’t behave according to your ego-dominated expectations.

Step 6: Learn to Let Go and Be Like Water
Rather than attempting to dominate with your forcefulness, be like water: flow everywhere there’s an opening. Soften your hard edges by being more tolerant of contrary opinions. Interfere less, and substitute listening for directing and telling. When someone offers you their viewpoint, try responding with: “I’ve never considered that before—thank you. I’ll give it some thought.”

When you give up interfering, and opt instead to stream like water—gently, softly, and unobtrusively— you become forgiveness itself.

Picture yourself as having the same qualities as water. Allow your soft, weak, yielding, fluid self to enter places where you previously were excluded because of your inclination to be solid and hard. Flow softly into the lives of those with whom you feel conflicted: Picture yourself entering their private inner selves, seeing perhaps for the first time what they’re experiencing. Keep this image of yourself as gently coursing water, and watch how your relationships change.

Step 7: Take Responsibility for Your Part
Removing blame means never assigning responsibility to anyone else for what you’re experiencing. It means that you’re willing to say, “I may not understand why I feel this way, why I have this illness, why I’ve been victimized, or why I had this accident, but I’m willing to say without any guilt or resentment that I own it. I live with, and I am responsible for, having it in my life.”

If you take responsibility for having the experience, then at least you have a chance to also take responsibility for removing it or learning from it. If you’re in some small (perhaps unknown) way responsible for that migraine headache or that depressed feeling, then you can go to work to remove it or discover what its message is for you. If, on the other hand, someone or something else is responsible in your mind, then of course you’ll have to wait until they change for you to get better. And that is unlikely to occur. So you go home with nothing and are left with nothing when peace is really on the other side of the coin.

Step 8: Let Go of Resentments
What causes annoyance and anger after a dispute? The generic response would be a laundry list detailing why the other person was wrong and how illogically and unreasonably they behaved, concluding with something like, “I have a right to be upset when my [daughter, mother-in-law, ex-husband, boss, or whomever you’re thinking of] speaks to me that way!”

Watch my free video series on spiritual awakening, forgiveness, and more

But if you’re interested in living a Tao-filled life, it’s imperative that you reverse this kind of thinking. Resentments don’t come from the conduct of the other party in an altercation—no, they survive and thrive because you’re unwilling to end that altercation with an offering of kindness, love, and authentic forgiveness. As Lao-Tzu says:

Someone must risk returning injury with kindness, or hostility will never turn to goodwill. — Lao-Tzu

So when all of the yelling, screaming, and threatening words have been expressed, the time for calm has arrived. Remember that no storm lasts forever, and that hidden within are always seeds of tranquility. There is a time for hostility and a time for peace.

Step 9: Be Kind Instead of Right
There is a Chinese proverb, If you’re going to pursue revenge, you’d better dig two graves, which is saying to me: your resentments will destroy you.

The world is just the way it is. The people who are behaving “badly” in the world are doing what they’re supposed to be doing. You can process it in any way that you choose. If you’re filled with anger about all of those “problems,” you are one more person who contributes to the pollution of anger. Instead, remember that you have no need to make others wrong or to retaliate when you’ve been wronged.

Imagine if someone says something to you that you find offensive, and rather than opting for resentment, you learn to depersonalize what you’ve just heard and respond with kindness. You are willing to freely send the higher, faster energies of love, peace, joy, forgiveness, and kindness as your response to whatever comes your way. You do this for yourself. You would rather be kind than right.

Step 10: Practice Giving
In the midst of arguments or disagreements, practice giving rather than taking before you exit. Giving involves leaving the ego behind. While it wants to win and show its superiority by being contrary and disrespectful, your Tao nature wants to be at peace and live in harmony. You can reduce your quarreling time to almost zero if you practice this procedure:

Wherever you are, whenever you feel strong emotions stirring in you and you notice yourself feeling the need to “be right,” silently recite the following words from the Prayer of Saint Francis:

Where there is injury, [let me bring] pardon.

Be a giver of forgiveness as he teaches: Bring love to hate, light to darkness, and pardon to injury. Read these words daily, for they’ll help you overcome your ego’s demands and know the fullness of life.

Step 11: Stop Looking for Occasions to Be Offended
When you live at or below ordinary levels of awareness, you spend a great deal of time and energy finding opportunities to be offended. A news report, a rude stranger, someone cursing, a sneeze, a black cloud —just about anything will do if you’re looking for an occasion to be offended. Become a person who refuses to be offended by any one, any thing, or any set of circumstances.

Watch my free video series on spiritual awakening, forgiveness, and more

If you have enough faith in your own beliefs, you’ll find that it’s impossible to be offended by the beliefs and conduct of others.

Not being offended is a way of saying, “I have control over how I’m going to feel, and I choose to feel peaceful regardless of what I observe going on. When you feel offended, you’re practicing judgment. You judge someone else to be stupid, insensitive, rude, arrogant, inconsiderate, or foolish, and then you find yourself upset and offended by their conduct. What you may not realize is that when you judge another person, you do not define them. You define yourself as someone who needs to judge others.

Step 12: Don’t Live In the Past – Be Present
When we find it difficult to forgive, often it is because we are not living in the present, and instead, we assign more importance to the past. We assign a good portion of our energy and attention lamenting the good old days that are gone forever as the reason why we can’t be happy and fulfilled today. “Everything has changed,” “No one respects anyone else like they used to…” This is assigning responsibility to the past for why you can’t be happy today.

It’s doubtful that other creatures waste the present moment in thoughts of past and future. A beaver only does beaver, and he does it right in the moment. He doesn’t spend his days ruminating over the fact that his beaver siblings received more attention, or his father beaver ran off with a younger beaver when he was growing up. He’s always in the now. We can learn much from God’s creatures about enjoying the present moment rather than using it up consumed with anger over the past or worry about the future. Practice living in the moment by appreciating the beauty around you now.

Step 13: Embrace Your Dark Times
In a universe that’s an intelligent system with a divine creative force supporting it, there simply can be no accidents. As tough as it is to acknowledge, you had to go through what you went through in order to get to where you are today, and the evidence is that you did. Every spiritual advance that you will make in your life will very likely be preceded by some kind of fall or seeming disaster. Those dark times, accidents, tough episodes, break ups, periods of impoverishment, illnesses, abuses, and broken dreams were all in order. They happened, so you can assume they had to and you can’t unhappen them.

Embrace them from that perspective, and then understand them, accept them, honor them, and finally transform them.

Step 14: Refrain from Judgement
When you stop judging and simply become an observer, you will know inner peace. With that sense of inner peace, you’ll find yourself happier and free of the negative energy of resentment. A bonus is that you’ll find that others are much more attracted to you. A peaceful person attracts peaceful energy.

If I’m to be a being of love living from my highest self, that means that love is all I have inside of me and all that I have to give away. If someone I love chooses to be something other than what my ego would prefer, I must send them the ingredients of my highest self, which is God, and God is love.

My criticism and condemnation of the thoughts, feelings, and behavior of others—regardless of how right and moral my human self convinces me it is—is a step away from God-realization. And it is God-consciousness that allows for my wishes to be fulfilled, as long as they are aligned with my Source of being. I can come up with a long list of reasons why I should be judgmental and condemnatory toward another of God’s children and why, damn it, I am right. Yet if I want to perfect my own world—and I so want to do so—then I must substitute love for these judgments.

Step 15: Send Love
I spent years studying the teachings of Patanjali, and he reminded us several thousand years ago that when we are steadfast—which means that we never slip in our abstention of thoughts of harm directed toward others—then all living creatures cease to feel enmity in our presence.
Now I know that we are all human: you, me, all of us. We do occasionally slip and retreat from our highest self into judgment, criticism, and condemnation, but this is not a rationale for choosing to practice that kind of interaction. I can only tell you that when I finally got it, and I sent only love to another of God’s children whom I had been judging and criticizing, I got the immediate result of inner contentment.

I urge you to send love in place of those judgments and criticisms to others when you feel they impede your joy and happiness, and hold them in that place of love. Notice that if you stay steadfast, when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

A Meditation to End on Love
Picture yourself at the termination of a quarrel or major dispute. Rather than reacting with old patterns of residual anger, revenge, and hurt, visualize offering kindness, love, and forgiveness.

Do this right now by sending out these “true virtue” thoughts to any resentments you’re currently carrying. Make this your standard response to any future altercations: I end on love, no matter what!

VIDEO: One-in-a-million mixed-race twins reveal they have to prove they are sisters

‘We have to show our birth certificates’: One-in-a-million mixed-race twins reveal they have to prove they are sisters… but admit they stopped dressing alike aged 7
Lucy and Maria Aylmer, 20, from Gloucester are non-identical twins
Growing up, mother Donna would be asked if she was their ‘childminder’
Donna is half Jamaican and their father Vince is white
Twins say they have radically different styles
By Lucy Laing For The Daily Mail and Jo Tweedy For Mailonline

A striking set of twins, who were born with radically different colouring thanks to mixed-race parentage, have revealed how they constantly have to explain their looks to curious strangers.

Appearing on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Lucy and Maria Aylmer, both 18, said classmates at school thought they were telling fibs when they revealed they were twins.

Lucy and Maria’s mother Donna is half Jamaican and their father Vince is white, and in a genetic quirk, together they managed to produce one white twin and one black twin.

The twins say it isn’t just their looks that are different, they have individual personalities too. Lucy (far left) says she’s much more shy than her sister Maria (second left), despite being born 23 seconds before her

Speaking to Ben Shepherd and Susanna Reid, the twins, from Gloucester, opened up about how their distinctively different looks had often made life difficult at school.

Red-haired Lucy said her pale complexion had prompted speculation that she’d been adopted: ‘My classmates used to ask if I was adopted because my siblings are all quite dark.

‘It was pretty hard, it went on in secondary school and it wasn’t very nice.’

When the girls were first born in 1997, their mother Donna had no idea that she could give birth to such different looking twins, described by experts as a one-in-a-million chance.

Lucy and Maria say schoolfriends don’t believe they’re twins

Growing up, the girls said they regularly overheard people asking their mum ‘Which one is yours?’ or ‘Are you the childminder?’.

Although most of their friends now know their unique story, they still have to present new acquaintances with photos of their birth certificates to prove they really are twin sisters.

‘Our friends do believe us now because we make a big fuss,’ says Maria. ‘We’ve got birth certificates. Lucy even had a picture of hers on her Facebook [profile].’

As the girls have turned into grown-ups they’ve tried to find their own style. Lucy, who has naturally curly hair, straightens it to ensure a sleek look. And the twins stopped wearing the same outfits when they were seven.

Lucy says: ‘I think I said to my mum: “I don’t want to wear the same clothes as Maria any more”.’

Same same, but different: Lucy and Maria Aylmer, 18, from Gloucester are non-identical twins

When asked at what age the girls knew their situation might raise questions from others, they say it took them a long time to know that their family was anything but ordinary.

‘It is what it is,’ says Maria. ‘We never even picked up on it until friends started talking about it at school.’

Their mother, who is 47 and a warehouse worker, and their 53-year-old father, who works as a scaffolder, split up after the twins were born.

The 18-year-olds have three older siblings, George, 23, Chynna, 22, and Jordan, 21. Lucy told the Daily Mail: ‘Our brothers and sisters have skin which is inbetween Maria and I. We are at opposite ends of the spectrum and they are all somewhere inbetween.

‘But my grandmother has a very fair English rose complexion, just like mine.’

She added: ‘No one ever believes we are twins. Even when we dress alike, we still don’t look like sisters, let alone twins.’

Family line: The twins’ mother Donna is half Jamaican and their father Vince is white, and their siblings George, Chynna and Jordan all have darker skin than Lucy and lighter than Maria

Two of a kind: The twins, who live in Gloucester, were born in January 1997

Different strokes: ‘Outgoing’ Maria studies law at Cheltenham College, while ‘shy’ Lucy studies art and design at Gloucester College

All together: Maria and Lucy with their mother Donna and siblings George, 23, Chynna, 22, and Jordan, 21

THE SCIENCE BEHIND ONE WHITE AND ONE BLACK TWIN
Non-identical twins come from separate eggs, so inherit different genes.

The girls’ half-Jamaican mother carries genes for both white and black skin.

By chance, Lucy will have inherited genes for white skin and Maria will have genes that code for black skin.

People with Afro-Caribbean heritage often have some European DNA, dating back in many cases to the slave trade.

This increases the chance of them passing on a gene for white skin to at least one twin.

Lucy said of her time at school: ‘We were in the same class, but no one had a problem telling us apart. Twins are known for swapping identities. But there was no way Maria and I could ever do anything like that.

‘Most twins look like two peas in a pod – but we couldn’t look more different if we tried. We don’t look like we have the same parents, let alone having been born at the same time.’

The twins’ interests are as different as their looks. Lucy studies art and design at Gloucester College whilst Maria studies law at Cheltenham College.

Lucy explained: ‘Maria was outgoing whilst I was the shy one. But Maria loves telling people at college that she has a white twin – and I’m very proud of having a black twin.’

One of the best saving strategies is to pay yourself first ”ፍቕሪ ገንዘብ”

How to Save: Strategies for Saving Money Each Month
The Traditional Methods
There are many tried and true ways of how to save money each month.

Every day put all of your loose change into a jar. Every once in a while deposit the money in your savings account. In time the money will grow into a little nest egg.
Try to set aside a certain amount of money each month or each paycheque for your savings. People have been doing this for years, but it takes discipline.
A Newer Method: Pay Yourself First

How It Works
One of the best saving strategies is to pay yourself first. What this means is that you designate a certain amount of your paycheque as your pay (how novel) and you pay that money to yourself before you pay your bills or anyone else. This amount can be $25, $100 or maybe 10% of your paycheque. It can be any amount that you decide. The important part is that you pay yourself first rather than last. Most people pay all of the bills first and then save anything that might be left over. For most people, that method of saving doesn’t really work because nothing is left over to save.

If you pay yourself first, then money will get saved because paying yourself is now your first priority. The nice thing about this method is if your budget is a little tight, it forces you to make adjustments elsewhere and your savings continue to grow.

Paying yourself first also makes sense. Why are you going to work everyday anyway? To earn money for someone else? No way. You go to work to earn money for you and your family. That’s why you should pay yourself first—to make sure that your first priority is taken care of: you. It is not likely that anyone else is going to take care of you because they assume that you are taking care of yourself.

Pay Yourself Automatically
When you pay yourself first, you should set up an automatic way of doing this so that you don’t even have to think about it—it just happens. You can get your employer to deduct a certain amount and put it in your RRSP or you can set up automatic transfers with your bank (either online or at your local branch).

Most people who use this method find that they very quickly get use to living on a little less and soon they don’t miss the amount that they are paying themselves in their savings account. When you almost forget about automatic savings and let them grow, amazing things happen—automatically. Automatically saving $25 a week turns into $1,300 a year. Now if someone did this over a lifetime, they would get some fantastic results—automatically. If someone automatically saved $100 every paycheque (bi-weekly) from when they were 25 until they were 65, they would end up with almost $415,000 if they only received a 6% rate of interest. Of course someone could afford to save more once they got their house paid off. So their final amount could be much higher. Hopefully you can see how easy it can be to accomplish big things with just a simple automatic setup where you pay yourself first.

How to Become a Millionaire—Automatically
Another amazing thing about using automatic deductions or transfers to pay yourself first is that you can use it to become a millionaire—automatically. This may sound crazy, but it actually works. If someone automatically had $200 transferred from each of their bi-weekly paycheques into their investment account from when they were 25 until they were 65, they would end up with over $1,000,000 if they averaged a 7% rate of return on their investments. So a normal person can become a millionaire automatically without winning the lottery. This plan would require a little more sacrifice than most people are willing to make in their twenties, but it is entirely possible. Now you know how to become a millionaire…..if only you were 25 again.

The Smartest Method to Save Money: Have a Spending Plan
The very best method to saving money is to create a Spending Plan or a Budget (learn how to make a budget). With a budget you figure out what your income is and what your expenses are. Once you know these two things, you can look for ways to reduce your expenses or increase your income to allocate an amount of money that you can afford to save. This is how the world’s largest corporations do it and this is how most of the world’s successful business people do it. This method takes a little bit of work at the beginning and a check-up every year or two, but it works.

The secret to this method (if you want to call it that) is to identify what you are spending money on so that you can begin to plan your spending. Once you begin to plan your spending, you will gain control over it and you will be able to plan to spend money on your savings. In other words, you will plan to put money into your savings account. Many people don’t like to plan their spending because it involves a little bit of work (once a year). No one is saying that success will come easily, but this little bit of work will pay off big time in many areas of your finances. We dare you to try it – what have you got to lose?

Ways to Save Money – How to Do It
Use One Savings Account
For some people, keeping things really simple works best. Ideally you should have . . .How to save money every month, and ways to save that money for the future.

An emergency savings account
At least one savings account for major purchases
A retirement savings account
If this is too much for you, get started by simply putting your money into one savings account, and then grow your savings from there.

You can put money aside on a regular basis for a down payment for a house, a car, or for your retirement. To get started, all of this money can go into one account, and it can double as your emergency fund as long as you don’t have “emergencies” on a regular basis.

Use Many Savings Accounts
If you find a bank or credit union that offers a free savings account, you can open up several savings accounts. Then every time you get paid, you can put money into each of these accounts for every specific thing that you are saving for. This way you can keep your money safe from accidently being spent, and it will be there when you need it.

These accounts don’t have to be actual bank or credit union savings accounts, they can be high interest accounts, Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs), RRSPs, term deposits, mutual funds, or other investments. Just make sure that you don’t lock up money in a long-term investment that you might need in the short term (learn more about the differences between saving and investing for the short-term versus long-term).

Places to Save Your Money – Where You Can Save Your Money in Canada
Under Your Mattress
We hope that you don’t do this. Every thief knows that this is the first place to look. Ditto with a roommate. Then there was that guy who dug a hole in his back yard and put $10,000 in cash into a glass jar and buried it. Later when he dug it up, he discovered that the water in the soil surrounding the jar had frozen in the winter and cracked the jar. Water then filled the jar and turned the money into a soupy mess. Because most of the bills were unrecognizable, he was not able to cash most of them in. All he was left with was one broken jar of expensive soup.

In Your Safety Deposit Box
Lots of people do this—just ask your bank’s tellers—they can smell it (old money stinks). Stashing cash in your safety deposit box is definitely safer than using a mattress or burying the money in the back yard, but not much smarter. Money in a safety deposit box does no one any good. It doesn’t earn you any interest. The government insures the money you deposit into an account at a bank up to $100,000 (and there are some ways to get higher coverage than this), and if you can’t trust the bank with your money, then how can you trust the bank with the stuff in your safety deposit box?

In Your Bank Account
A chequing account or a regular savings account is no place to save your money. Most of them pay hardly any interest. This is because the bank lends your money to other people when you aren’t using it. Money in a regular bank account might get used often, or you might need to withdraw it quickly, so the bank can’t lend that money out for very long because you might need it. The bank makes money when they can lend your money out for extended periods of time, and at higher interest rates, so then you earn more interest when they are able to do that. Look to earn more interest with High Interest Savings Accounts and Term Deposits or GICs.

High Interest Savings Accounts
These types of savings accounts are usually more restrictive than regular savings accounts, but they pay a lot more interest. Make sure that your bank or credit union is paying you a competitive rate (you can’t negotiate but you can move) and then save away. These types of accounts are usually safe, convenient and their interest rates usually move up as bank interest rates move up.

Term Deposits or Guaranteed Income Certificates (GICs)
If you know that you are not going to need your savings for a year or more, consider putting your savings into a Term Deposits or GIC (they are pretty much the same thing). These are a great way to try to get more interest on your money than a High Interest Savings Account can offer. However, this is not always the case, but it pays to check. Most banks and credit unions will allow you to put your money into a Term Deposit or GIC with a thousand dollars or more.

Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA)
For most Canadians, these are the best way to save. A Tax Free Savings Account is your own little tax haven. A TFSA is an official setup that shelters your investment from taxes. A TFSA account allows you to put up to $5,500 per year into your tax shelter and not pay any tax on the interest that you earn or on the growth of your investment. Then when you take your money out of the TFSA, you don’t pay any tax either. So now you don’t have to sneak off to the Bahamas or the Cayman Islands to invest your money and protect yourself from taxes. The government has kindly brought the tax haven to you. Whether you are saving up for a car, a down payment for a house or your retirement, a TFSA is a smart way to save and invest.

Register Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)
Before the Canadian government introduced the Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA), an RRSP used to be one of the best ways for many people to save. An RRSP is still a good way to save money, but it is now primarily meant to be a way to save for your retirement. You and your tax advisor (if you have one) will have to decide if an RRSP is right for you.

An RRSP is basically just a setup that shelters your investment from tax until you withdraw your money from the RRSP tax shelter. With an RRSP setup, you can choose to invest in a vast array or normal investments: savings accounts, term deposits, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, and other investments.

The Benefits of an RRSP

All contributions (within limits that most people never reach) can be used to reduce the amount of income tax that you pay. If you are paying a lot of income tax, contributing to an RRSP may be a good way of reducing what you are paying.
As your investment grows in your RRSP, you don’t have to pay any tax until you take the money out of your RRSP. If you are saving for retirement and you know that your income will be lower than it is now, than contributing to an RRSP may be a good idea because when you take the money out when you are retired, your income will be lower, so the amount of tax that you pay on the money then will be less than what you would pay now.
RRSP savings can be withdrawn for a down payment on your first home. The catch is that you have to pay the money back into your RRSP within 15 years. If you don’t do this, then the RRSP redemption becomes taxable and the government sends you a tax bill. Up to $20,000 can be withdrawn. The program that allows you to withdraw this money is called the Home Buyer’s Plan (HBP).
Money can also be withdrawn from your RRSP for your education. Under the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP) you can withdraw up to $20,000 for your education. This program gives you 10 years to pay the money back, but fortunately, you aren’t required to begin paying it back until 5 years after you graduate.
If you ever have to declare bankruptcy, the money in your RRSPs is protected. The only portion that’s not protected is anything you contribute in the 12 months before filing for bankruptcy.
The Disadvantages of an RRSP

All withdrawals from your RRSP plan are taxed as income.
10% to 30% of the money you withdraw from your RRSP is held back for taxes. The percentage that is held back depends on how much you are withdrawing. You can possibly get this money back when you do your taxes if you don’t end up owing the government any money.
You must begin to withdraw money from your RRSP when you turn 69. The government has created a schedule that determines how much you must withdraw each year. Most people have been encouraged to use an RRSP to save for retirement. However, many retirees whose incomes have not declined in their retirement years have found that it was not in their best interest to invest in an RRSP. Once these people turn 69 and are forced to withdraw money from their RRSPs and pay tax on the money that they withdraw, they find that they are paying just as much tax – and in some cases more – as they would have to pay if they had invested outside of an RRSP.
Other Investments
There are numerous other investments that you can use to save your money: money market funds, bonds, stocks, mutual funds and the list goes on. If you plan to spend the money that you are saving within five years, it is best to find something safe to invest in. For most people a high interest savings account or a term deposit within a Tax Free Savings Account works just fine. These options are safe and sure—you know that your money is going to be there when you need it—the same can’t be said if you choose to invest in something that has a lot more risk . . . like the stock market.

Where to Find Money to Save Each Month
Here are 10 places to get you started

Some things are easier said than done—like saving money. So you want to save money, but where do you find money to save if you don’t have anything extra right now? Here are some great places to look:Where to look to find money to save each month.

Get It from Work
Raises at work
When you get a raise, put the extra money you are now earning in the bank. You lived on less before. Do you really need these few extra dollars, or does your savings account need them more?

Bonuses from work
If you get paid a bonus, bank this money as well. You don’t need your bonus for living expenses because it is extra money that you can’t count on—that’s why it is a “bonus” to your normal wages. Bonuses are perfect for saving. If you need your bonus for living expenses, you probably have other financial challenges that need attention first. Click here to find out how to deal with debts.

Overtime pay from work
In some jobs you can volunteer for extra overtime. Consider working a little overtime each week and then treat your overtime pay as something sacred and save it in a special account.

Extra large commission
If you get paid commission for your job, consider saving a portion of any extra large commission cheques. It is so easy to blow money and then not know where it went. Use some of your extra large commission cheques to create something you will remember—a nice retirement, a comfortable home, or something else that you would like to save for. Use your savings to create a reward for yourself that will last.
Get It from the Government
Tax refund
If you get a tax refund, use the money to increase your savings. To find out how to pay less tax so that you can get a tax refund or qualify for a larger refund, speak with your tax advisor or someone you trust. Two ways that many people reduce the amount of tax that they have to pay is by contributing to an RRSP and/or by donating more money to charity. If you set up an automated system where your RRSP or charitable giving is automatically debited from your bank account or deducted from your paycheque, these options can be easy and affordable.

Tax Assessment
If property values have fallen significantly in your community, make sure that your tax assessment value is fair. If it’s not fair, apply for a re-assessment. In communities where property values have fallen substantially, this can save you a lot of money in property taxes.

Claim all expenses
If you are self employed, do you do your own taxes or do you have a professional accountant with a professional designation like CA, CGA or CMA do your taxes for you? If your taxes aren’t being done by one of these professionals, you could be missing out on some big tax savings. If you think that these kinds of accountants are expensive, that may be true, but it is often more expensive to pay the government thousands of dollars in unnecessary taxes than to pay a good accountant a few hundred dollars to find these savings for you. If you are really thrifty, you can try out the accountant once to see if you are missing any deductions, and then you can go back to your old way of doing taxes and use the tax saving tips that you learned from the accountant.
Find It in Your Expenses
Look for an expense to cut and save that money
Some people suggest that you increase your savings by cutting back on lattes or quitting smoking, these are good suggestions but there are also other big ways to save money. One way that a lot of people can save money—but something they often overlook—is to take a serious look at what they spend on their hobbies. Some people spend huge amounts on personal trainers, protein supplements, golf, skiing, and other sports. They don’t even consider how much they spend because they believe that they are spending it on something healthy or on something they love. If you have a pressing concern—like getting out of debt—cutting back what you spend on a hobby, even just for a while, may be a great option to consider.

Ways to save money on cars and expenses in Canada.

If you’re looking for money to save, your expenses could be a gold mine. Here’s one great place to look: the average vehicle owner spends $9,000 per year to own and operate their vehicle. Is there any possibility you could downsize to a smaller, more fuel efficient vehicle, buy a quality used vehicle rather than a brand new one, move closer to work, car pool, or take transit? Here’s another way to think about this: the average Canadian car loan payment is $570 per month. If someone invests this from age 25 to 65 in mutual funds or an index fund and receives an average rate of return of 11% (what the S&P 500 has done over the past 70 years), they will have over $4.2 million at age 65. Is always having a new car worth $4 million to you? Consider buying a quality used car and invest the rest. Your old car payment could literally end up funding your retirement (by the way, it’s never too late to start saving. If the person in this scenario saved this car payment from age 40 to 70, they’d still have a million dollars).

Another easy way to find money to save is to look at credit card statements for the last few months and see what you could have gone without and would be able to survive going without next time. You save even more money if you leave the credit cards at home and only pay with cash. Studies show that we tend to spend 15% more when we pay for things with credit. For the average Canadian household who puts everything on credit, they could save over $3,000 a year if they bought everything with cash instead. Sure they’d have to give up their points or cash back, but assuming they used the best cash back cards in Canada, they’d only be giving up $400. They’d still be looking at a big win.

Review your debt payments
Take a look at the interest rates on any debt payments you may have. Regardless of how low your interest rate is on your line of credit, credit cards, mortgage or a loan, if you look around and see what other companies are offering for the same product you may find that you can do better. If you’re paying 5% interest on your line of credit, you may be able to show your bank that others are paying 3.5% and get them to do the same for you. If you’re paying 20% interest on a credit card, see if your credit card company has a lower interest rate card. You may be able to get them to move you to a 12% card, or you may be able to find an even better rate somewhere else. If you have a mortgage, have a chat with a mortgage broker and make sure you’re getting the best rate possible. Here’s more information on how to get the lowest interest rates.

If you are carrying balances on credit cards or store cards, review your balances and your monthly payments. If you have a balance of around $1,000 on one card, you may be making $30 monthly payments. Find a way to pay off this balance with a bonus from work, a tax refund, or by increasing your payments. Once you’ve paid off this debt, you’ll have $30 more to work with each month. Use this approach on your next smallest debt, eliminate it, and you’ll free up even more money each month.

If you’re struggling to make the minimum payments on your debts, your best move may be to sit down with a non-profit Credit Counsellor, have them review your financial situation, and see what your best options are to get your finances back on track. If you’re really have a tough time making ends meet, you may qualify for interest relief.

Track your spending and create a spending plan
Tracking your spending is the very best way to identify areas that you can save money. Written out in black and white, most people are surprised how much they spend and areas where they can cut back become very clear. All you need to do is track your spending for one month to get a good idea of where your money is going. Many people think, “Oh, I don’t need to do that. I already know where I spend my money.” The truth is surprising to most people; they really don’t realize how much they spend. You can’t say that you know how much you spend unless you have tracked your spending.

Once you’ve identified where you are spending your money, and you see areas where you would like to reduce your spending, you need to set an amount that you think is reasonable to spend and stick to it. To stick to your spending limits, you need to create a spending plan, and then follow your spending plan by only spending the amounts that you set out to spend in your plan. This is a very simple thing to do and it is a very effective method to control you spending. It is often called budgeting. To learn how to create your own spending plan, click here.

Tips for How to Keep Your Money Safe from Yourself
Some people recognize that their biggest obstacle to saving money each month is themselves. If you think that this is part of the reason why you can’t seem to save any money, here are some strategies and tips to try out to keep your money safe from yourself.

Have your bank remove access to your savings account from your bank card and your online banking. If you have to go into the bank to get the money out, you will be far less likely to spend it. Going into the bank to make a withdrawal will give you more time to think about a purchase before you go ahead with it.
If you live with a partner, and your partner is clearly a better saver than you are, consider giving your partner control of your savings. This will make it harder for you to spend your money.
Invest your money in an investment or with a company that you have to contact and request a withdrawal from. It will usually take a number of days to get your money out of an investment company like this. That will give you extra time to think about your decision to spend this money. If by the time you get the money out, you decide that you shouldn’t spend the money, send it back. When you withdraw money from investments like this, your investment advisor or investment representative might ask you why you are withdrawing the money, this might create another barrier to keep your money safe from your impulses. Some common investments that require you to ask someone to take your money out include term deposits, mutual funds, and all types of RRSPs.

Health: Why am I losing my hair? Is it genetic? ምኽሪ ሞያዉያን

10 THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MALE HAIR LOSS (ምኽሪ ሞያዉያን)

We’ve got the answers to the questions you need to ask

1. How can I tell if I’m going to go bald?

This isn’t as silly a question as it sounds. Losing your hair isn’t the same as going bald. Male pattern baldness is a genetic condition whereas hair loss per se can be caused by a variety of factors.

If you are losing patches of hair in an apparently random manner you may have alopecia, a condition where a person (male or female) loses patches of hair from parts of their body. In extreme cases this may affect all of the hair on the body. Alopecia is thought to have hereditary and autoimmune factors (where the body mistakenly attacks itself). It is not the same as male pattern baldness.

If your hair loss occurs in a more regular receding pattern, usually from the temples and crown of the head, then it is more likely you have male pattern baldness. But remember – most men go bald. It’s nothing to be afraid of or embarrassed about.

2. How quickly will I lose my hair?

Many men start going bald at some point in their twenties, but it typically takes 15-25 years to go bald. Half of fifty year olds are quite bald.

However, some men go bald in less than five years. It is almost impossible to put a finger on how long the process will take.

3. Why am I losing my hair? Is it genetic?

If you have male pattern baldness, you are losing your hair because your body is becoming increasingly sensitive to male sex hormones called androgens. The extent to which your scalp is affected by this process is hereditary.

You can also lose your hair because of illness or surgical procedures, stressful circumstances, changes in hormone levels and scalp infections. But in many cases hair loss is not permanent.

4. Is baldness caused by emotional stress or sexual frustration?

Some hair loss is associated with stress although male pattern baldness is a genetic condition found in many men. If you find your hair is falling out in clumps or at unpredictable times, it is most likely to be the symptom of something else. This could be stress related but is unlikely to be caused by sexual frustration. The best thing to do is to see your GP for a check up.

5. Is there anything I can do to stop my hair from falling out naturally?

Everyone loses hair naturally and it is normal for hair to thin somewhat when you get older. But the truth is that male pattern hair loss is a genetic condition that cannot be stopped entirely.

There is a condition called Traction Alopecia, which is caused by constant pulling or tension of your hairs over a long period. You don’t have to be dragged around the floor by your head to suffer from this either – if you often wear tight braids, particularly cornrows, or tight ponytails, you are more likely to get Traction Alopecia. So try not to pull your hair tight excessively. Some experts also recommend exercise as a good way to maintain a healthy head of hair.

6. How can I treat it?

Baldness is a natural process. Firstly you need to ask yourself whether you really want to ‘treat’ it or if you can find a way to accept it rather than try to camouflage bald spots or regain your hair completely.

If you do want treatment, there are two drugs that can help.

Minoxidil lotion (Regaine regular strength or Regaine extra strength) is applied twice daily to the scalp. Not available on NHS prescription, but can be purchased over-the-counter. About 60 per cent of patients benefit from it to varying degrees. Its effects start to wear off as soon as it is stopped.

Finasteride (Propecia) is a medicine taken in tablet form that partially blocks the effects of the male hormones (an ‘anti-androgen’). Propecia has been shown to halt further hair loss and promote re-growth of scalp hair in approximately 80 per cent of patients after three to six months. The treatment benefits also stop when you stop taking the medication. Only available on prescription and is available on some NHS primary care trust lists for certain conditions.

You might also consider cosmetic surgery, which is a reliable way to replace lost hair. Methods include transplants, scalp reductions and flap surgery – although all are expensive long-term solutions.

7. What will happen if I treat my hair loss? What are the possible side effects?

Minoxidil lotion: Common side effects are scalp and skin irritation. More rarely it can cause changes in hair colour and texture.
Finasteride: Noticeable side effects are uncommon, but sometimes the medicine can cause a rash, and a small proportion of users may experience reduced libido, erection problems or breast and/or nipple tenderness.

8. Will stress make me go bald quicker?

Stress can cause hair loss but hair loss caused by stress is rarely permanent. Whether stress speeds up the process of hereditary baldness is unknown.

There is a form of hair loss that can be caused by severe stress called telogen effluvium, which interrupts the growth cycle of your hair follicles causing hair to shed. But in the long term this process should correct itself.

9. Will I suffer any psychological problems as a result of going/being bald?

Some men have a genuine fear of going bald and it can cause high stress levels, low self-esteem, reduced sex drive and even depression. But if you understand the causes and accept them you are much more likely to conquer these fears. Most men feel a momentary loss of confidence when they realise they are losing hair but this is often overcome quickly. The only way to ensure you won’t suffer psychological problems is to face up to the realities of baldness and either accept it or seek treatment that works for you.

10. Will the rest of my hair fall out (e.g. eyebrows, eye lashes)?

No. Only scalp hairs are affected by male pattern baldness. Other areas such as the beard or armpits might be affected by alopecia.

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to a loss of hair from part of the head or body.Typically at least the head is involved. The severity of hair loss can vary from a small area to the entire body. Typically inflammation or scarring is not present.Hair loss in some people causes psychological distress.

Common types include: male-pattern hair loss, female-pattern hair loss, alopecia areata, and a thinning of hair known as telogen effluvium. The cause of male-pattern hair loss is a combination of genetics and male hormones, the cause of female pattern hair loss is unclear, the cause of alopecia areata is autoimmune, and the cause of is telogen effluvium is typically a physically or psychologically stressful event. Telogen effluvium is very common following pregnancy.

Less common causes of hair loss without inflammation or scarring include the pulling out of hair, certain medications including chemotherapy, HIV/AIDS, hypothyroidism, and malnutrition including iron deficiency. Causes of hair loss that occurs with scarring or inflammation include fungal infection, lupus erythematosus, radiation therapy, and sarcoidosis. Diagnosis of hair loss is partly based on the areas affected.

Treatment of pattern hair loss may simply involve accepting the condition. Intervention that can be tried include the medications minoxidil or finasteride, and hair transplant surgery. Alopecia areata may be treated by steroid injections in the affected area but these need to be frequently repeated to be effective. Hair loss is a common problem. Pattern hair loss by age 50 affects about half of males and a quarter of females. About 2% of people develop alopecia areata at some point in time.

72-yr-old woman has an unusual, well-paying job – to guard John Lennon’s glasses

This 72-yr-old woman has an unusual, well-paying job — to guard John Lennon’s glasses!
The unusually well-paid job is very tiring for the 72-year-old woman, who has been doing the task for past two years.

cuba, john lennon, john lennon cuba, lennon glasses, lennon cuba statue glasses, havana lennon park, lennon park spectacles keeper, cuba lennon park spectacle guard, world news, cuba news, world news, bizarre news, viral news, latest news Since 2000, when the world famous bronze statue-bench was installed in the park with Lennon’s iconic round spectacle, many pairs have gone missing.
Many senior citizens look for jobs post-retirement – some out of boredom and others because they need to. But more often than not, unless you’re a consultant with an MNC, the remuneration for such jobs may not be much to boast of. However, for Cuba’s Aleeda Rodriguez Padrasa, not only is her job rather unusual, it’s also fairly well-paying. Yes, she has a secured government job and earns 245 Cuban pesos a month for being a ‘spectacle-keeper’. Confused, right? Well, her job is to guard the pair of spectacles on John Lennon’s bronze statue in Havana’s Lennon Park.
The unusually well-paid job is very tiring for the 72-year-old woman who has been doing the task for past two years, CNN reported. She stands for 12 hours every day in the park to guard the spectacle, while tourists flock to take pictures with the Beatles legend sitting on the bench.
The popular tourist attraction in the island capital has a heavy footfall all through the year and has been at the receiving end of some mischief as well. Since 2000, when the world famous bronze statue-bench was installed in the park with Lennon’s iconic round spectacle, many pairs have gone missing. Tired of replacing the signature glasses, the government decided to hire a keeper to safeguard it.
Cuba has a very unique relationship with the legendary singer-composer as Beatles was banned in Cuba by the then leader Fidel Castro in 1964, as a part of his agenda to fight Western capitalism. However, Lennon was immensely popular among the masses and many of his albums were circulated by underground movement. Later, due to his vocal criticism of the US policies in foreign lands, Castro liked him and the ban was lifted. Later on Lennon’s 20th death anniversary, this famous statue was installed.

According to the report, about two years ago, her own glasses were taken from the statue. “The glasses were mine,” says Padrasa, “but I wasn’t watching and when I turned around they were gone.” After the third one went missing the government hired her. Since then every day as soon as the first tourist bus arrives in the park, she puts the pair of glasses atop Lennon’s nose securing it from her bag and spends rest of the day guarding it.

A man took his bride to court just a day after getting married 11-03-2017

A groom from South Africa took his bride to court just a day after their marriage, accusing her of not looking as pretty as before the wedding and of cheating him with much make-up.
The groom told court in south africa that he was shocked when he got up in the next morning and found that his wife looked so different, that he could not recognise her.
Newspapers in the country said the groom swore in court that he even mistook his wife for a “thief who came to steal his apartment”.
“The groom told the judge that he could not recognise his wife after she washed the make-up off her face.
“He said he was deceived by her as she used to fill up her face with make up before their marriage,” the papers said, quoting a court source.
“He said she looked very beautiful and attractive before marriage, but when he woke up in the morning and found that she had washed the make-up off her face, he was frightened as he thought she was a thief.
“The groom told court that he is demanding $20,000 damages for his psychological suffering.”
