You have probably seen repeating numbers at least once when you looked at the clock. Even though such coincidence appears meaningless, there is a meaning behind it. It happens often that we see these repeating numbers: 11:11, 12:12, 10:10, 22:22, 12:34, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 or 5:55 while watching the clock or these same numbers happen to appear in the most unexpected places. Seeing more and more the master numbers, or a series of repeating numbers , and the frequency with which this happens is accelerating, to the point that now we can no longer speak of a simple coincidence. The phenomenon is coming to gigantic proportions, and everyone agrees on the fact that there is a deeper meaning, a coded message for us that comes from the spiritual world. Among the master numbers the more frequently seen is 11 and particularly in its dual form, 11:11 . But what does it mean?

He was very much preaching to the converted, but with the much preaching to the converted, but piece with everything he said in the campaign, surprising in the sense that at an inaugural address it is a time when you try to heal the wounds of the campaign, and he did the opposite. He said the same things he had said throughout the campaign, and actually, making those divisions deeper rather than trying to heal them, which was a strange thing to do.

I thought it was dazzling. I thought it was wonderful, and several nominations. I think it's a film which really deserves repeat viewing. I can imagine, I have the Blu-ray of this, I can imagine going back to it time and time again, and every time you see it seeing something you missed the first time.

KLINKNER: If there are any parallels between Hitler and his big lie and Trump and what he's doing is that Hitler's big lie was the stab-in-the-back thesis. The idea that Germany had lost World War I because it was stabbed in the back, not because it lost on the battlefield against the Allied powers; it was because at home, Jews and capitalists and Bolsheviks and socialists had destroyed Germany from within. So that's a big lie that he's been pushing. And Trump, like many other demagogues throughout American history, have identified racial, ethnic, religious minorities as somehow working from within the country to destroy it. LEBRON: Donald Trump is able to stir up the masses because he's able to say this very simple thing that is plausible to a lot of people, but really taps into deeper fears about who is taking what from them. If they're not as prosperous as they think they ought to be, who is doing this to them? It must be somebody else doing it to them, which is also the ironic thing.

Most of us - and it is most of us - now face a double challenge. We must craft effective resistance to the threats posed by Trumpism mashed up with Cruzism, while (more challengingly) understanding how progressives let so many Americans down so badly that Trump and the Republicans could win, and what must be done to remedy that deeper catastrophe. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Those who subscribe to the notion that deconstructing a joke ruins it may consider making an exception for the Nerdwriter (aka Evan Puschak). His careful parsing of Louis CK ’s Monopoly joke , above, takes rhythm, word choice, and the importance of a clearly stated premise into account. Delivering the 207-word joke at the Beacon Theater , CK is characteristically nonchalant, but Puschak argues that there’s nothing unrehearsed about his performance. Take the way he ramps up a scenario that will be familiar to any parent—the six-year-old who is emotionally unequipped to handle losing at games. CK gets at an even deeper truth about the howling injustice of being six, by saying that his younger daughter is “not emotionally developed enough to handle her inevitable loss in every game of Monopoly.” Oh, the humanity. Puschak also singles out CK’s acting ability.

Before we close up shop for the week, I wanted to send us off into this momentous weekend with some uplifting artwork by Sara Wenokur that celebrates color and life. So many people in our community are traveling to participate in marches across the country tomorrow, and I want to wish everyone (marching or not) a safe weekend and safe spaces in which to speak up and make your voices heard. So much of what we do here at Design*Sponge is about providing inspiration and a safe space to find your voice, both literally and figuratively, and I applaud everyone who is taking steps toward becoming more involved in the world and systems around them. No matter your viewpoint, all points of view and all constructive conversations (and debates) will always be welcome here. I know this site is a respite from life's difficult moments for so many people, but I hope we can continue to be a place where we embrace the beauty and creativity in life while still digging deeper to understand the things that make it complicated and challenging.

Third, with the United States no longer the guarantor of the international world order, Europe paradoxically will seek deeper ties with the People's Republic of China to uphold the current system. This, to name a few, will include defending the World Trade Organization and the global free trading system ; the Iran deal , which Trump will likely abandon; the Paris Agreement on Climate Change which a Trump White House might also abandon; and the deeper integration of Europe--China was decidedly in favor of the United Kingdom remaining in the EU prior to the Brexit vote and has been a consistent supporter of the European integration process to facilitate Chinese investment in Europe. As a result of stronger Europe-China ties, human rights issues will likely be less discussed in international forums during the next four years. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Specifically, to make these benefits a reality, some of the important questions that should be addressed include: Educator Capacity- Are our educators in personalized learning systems prepared with the skills and developed mindsets to work with ELLs and SWDs? This includes supporting students with disabilities or language needs through internships and other independent learning, understanding how language acquisition interacts with content learning, and believing in the capacity of all students for growth and self-advocacy. Resources- Are we addressing the digital divide (at school and at home) in areas where we're implementing personalized learning and ensuring tools that enable personalized learning are accessible to all learners? Is technology being used to facilitate learning opportunities with deeper depths of rigor or is it simply replicating disengaging, low rigor experiences through a virtual platform? Support Systems- Do we have on-time and on-going support systems to help students who fall behind? Are these systems equally available to all students, including those whose families may not have access to online systems? Accountability- Are we holding ourselves accountable for ensuring all students--including ELLs and SWDs--develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions essential for college, career, and civic success, or are we re-creating a bifurcated system of expectations? Parent and Community Engagement- Are parents and communities meaningfully engaged throughout the process or is this another initiative that's done to groups rather than with them? The fact that these challenges aren't necessarily unique to personalized learning implementation doesn't get advocates off the hook.

If your goal tomorrow is to feel good about yourself, get your voice heard, and then return to business as usual, I suspect you will achieve it. But if you actually want to make things better in America, and end the rising chaos, poverty, and the emerging low wage police state, I urge you think a little deeper. Instead of thinking about just how you can make yourself feel superior to those who support Trump, perhaps you should reconsider the tactics and rhetoric the organized left has used in the last 30 years. The country is far bigger than the East Coast and Southern California. Millions of Americans are angry and desperately want change. Millions of them voted for Trump because they were led to believe he would bring that change. Its quite trendy and easy to be anti-Trump in certain parts of the country. The economy in New York City and southern California is much better than elsewhere.

So I asked Bella if she could put herself to sleep. I kind of went like that to her foreheadbanged her head up against the concrete. I dont like screaming. Thats one thing I cant handle. And then Morgan handed me the knife. Morgan kind of started freaking out a little bit. She said, I cant do this. Im too scared. You have to. So I had to hug her and calm her down. And then I had to start petting Morgan like she was a cat. When their initial plan failed, they resorted to a children's game as a ruse. When the first plot failed, the girls decided to play a game of hide-and-seek to drive their victim deeper into the woods. She was going to hide one place. I was going to hide another, and then Morgan and I were going to be like lionesses chasing down a zebra, Weier said, according to police footage.

This is rooted in appealing to authority as the basis of ones argument, which happens to be a logical fallacy. The significance of having concise talking points is that it allows any who are unaware to quickly get up to speed and follow the line of research for themselves, rather than blindly believing someone at face value. The reality is that a majority of the population is still unawakened and has no idea that the world works very differently from how they’re told in school and what they watch on the news. Taking this into account, it’s crucial that the people of truth recognize that they can’t wake others up by taking them from a stand still right to 100mph. The rabbit hole runs too deep and there is simply too much information for one mind to take in right away. Awakening to truth is a process that takes time; whereas realization of the deeper layers first requires comprehension of the beginning levels for context.

Three MAJOR Benefits of OLED Display OLEDs produce deeper blacks and have a wider gamut array, and because they’re not backlit they possess higher contrast ratios. In addition to this, refresh rates are WAY faster than what you’ll come across on LCD/LED setups. Viewing angles are also better, meaning you can pretty much see exactly what’s happening on the screen even when standing at 90 degrees. Plastic is lighter and more durable than glass. OLEDs are made from plastics and are therefore A LOT lighter and less prone to shattering than their LED/LCD counterparts. This is how Samsung and LG is able to make curved phones and HDTVs. OLED displays used to be pricy and this was because of the production costs associated with building them. This is why OLED TVs are insanely expensive these days. However, once new production capabilities are scaled up, something that is happening now, the cost of producing OLED displays will drop dramatically, meaning OLED TVs will be cheaper than LED ones by 2017/18.

Begs the question: Where's the remaining balance in investment capital going to come from, going forward? We just assume it will always be there. Last week, the Forum released its annual study in advance of the gathering at Davos. This year it summarized that global progress is in crisis, and that capitalism itself must undergo a fundamental change if it is to survive a global backlash. According to the repor t , democracy suffers from a “deeper crisis, provoked by the impact of rapid economic and technological change, the deepening of social and cultural polarisation, and the emergence of the ‘post-truthpolitical debate.” All those factors call for a major re-think of the growth model, said Margareta Drzeniek, the WEF's Head of Global Competitiveness and Risks. There is widespread sense that the growth model we've been following for the past years does not deliver in terms of increasing the incomes of the population.

Interpersonal Sensitivity Great leaders have a very keen ability to sense others' non-verbal emotional and social cues - a skill referred to by experts as "interpersonal sensitivity" - and quickly make decisions that inspire leadership in others. Being interpersonally sensitive allows great leaders to develop close connections with employees that help motivate hard work, productivity and loyalty. - Kristopher Jones , LSEO.com A. Empathy Great leaders have the natural ability to be empathetic when communicating with others. Not to be confused with sympathy, empathy is much more valuable, as it is a key element of having emotional intelligence. For example, I like to always put myself in the other person's shoes to better understand their feelings and motives and make a deeper connection during our conversation.

Russia is offering tiny Moldova a fresh bargain in exchange for cutting trade ties with the European Union, signaling a new playbook as the Kremlin attempts to win over countries tempted to forge deeper ties with the West. In its efforts to rebuild sway over former Soviet republics, Russia has relied mainly on its military might, dispatching forces to parts of Georgia and Ukraine and annexing Crimea in 2014. A draft agreement between Russia and Moldova announced this week suggests the Kremlin will deal with the nations that once made up the rim of the Soviet Union with more carrots and fewer sticks.
