And all that mass is subject to gravity, which pulls the star's mass inward. So the fusion and the gravity more or less balance each other out. This is called stellar equilibrium, which is the state our Sun is in, and will be in for several billion more years. But stars don't last forever, or rather, their hydrogen doesn't. And once the hydrogen runs out, the star begins to change. In the case of a massive star, it begins to fuse heavier and heavier elements, until it fuses iron and nickel in its core. The fusion of iron and nickel is a natural fusion limit in a star, and once it reaches the iron and nickel fusion stage, fusion stops. We now have a star with an inert core of iron and nickel. Now that fusion has stopped, stellar equilibrium is broken, and the enormous gravitational pressure of the star's mass causes a collapse. This rapid collapse causes the core to heat again, which halts the collapse and causes a massive outwards shockwave.

In the past three decades, huge numbers of Mexican and other Hispanic immigrants have settled in the US. Unlike earlier immigrants, they have retained close links to their home base, often remaining Spanish speaking and having dual nationality or citizenship. Some observers believe that America is evolving towards a bi-cultural, bi-lingual society. In addition, the advance of individualism has been accompanied by a turning towards inward and self-defined identities - such as feminist, gay, and lesbian - resulting in a partial shift from engagement with the nation to one with smaller and more homogenous groupings. The decline in communal identity, and trust in political leaders, has also weakened national allegiance. Finally, as noted by Samuel Huntingdon, "elements of America's intellectual, political, and business elites increasingly downgraded their commitment to the nation and gave privilege to trans-national and sub-national claims on their loyalties.

"We teach best what we most need to learn." - Richard Bach There's good reason for my attraction to Anita's story. I've struggled for years trying to promote my gifts to the world. All my chasing and pursuing has only taken me so far. Reading Dying to Be Me gave me pause to consider that perhaps I've been living life backwards. In writing my Porch Light Profiles, I'm trading in industry goals and marketing plans to instead come from my own center. For me, this series is important work. It's my heart's longing to know itself. As time goes on, I hope to confirm what Anita learned on the other side. If Porch Light Profiles really are a product of my inner light, then the stories I share will attract readers who need to hear their message. Inspired, they will turn inward and begin to listen. *Coming up next: Profile of author/illustrator, Susan Branch Text and images © Sue Shanahan.

The happiest and most abundant person on earth is one who gives and receives and knows his/her ultimate worth. The journey of remembering self-worth is an inward one and it is tied to awakening to our True Self. I have written quite a few articles on self-worth and if you are interested in exploring your own worth, the articles titledOvercoming the ‘I’m Not Good EnoughVoice” as well as “The Art of AllowingGive Yourself the Permission to Love Youoffer some insights on how to overcome issues of low self-worth. Remember, what your subconscious cannot accept as true will not manifest in your reality. If you do not believe that you are worthy of wealth, life will continue to show you that belief until it is released from your consciousness, and only you can do the work to clean it up. Block #4: The World Controls My Finances Given the political and economic status in today’s world where there is uneven distribution of wealth, it is so easy for us to get sucked into the reality that only a handful of people are capable of achieving wealth either because they are lucky or they resort to shady means (which reinforces the first money block belief) without realizing that we are paying for that reality with our energy because living in a vibrational universe, our energy is the currency we use to purchase experiences.

Foreign direct investment Contrary to popular belief, the Brexit vote has not stopped the flow of foreign direct investment into the region either. Invest Northern Ireland has made an inward investment announcement every month since the referendum and the pipeline remains strong. In fact, in 2016 there were 25 percent more investment announcements from international companies compared to 2015. This past year there were 18 new international companies that set up in Northern Ireland, nearly 40 percent increase from 2015. Of these half are U.S. headquartered. Most tellingly however, 12 of those announcements came after the referendum was held in June. That growth can also be seen in office rentals with top-end office letting in Belfast increasing by 40 per cent during 2016 . The latest end-of-year figures show some 435,000 sq ft of office space rented during the course of 2016 - up 36 per cent based on a five-year average.

House Democrats are united against President Donald Trump, but as they wrap up a somewhat painful, inward-looking retreat, they are still trying to figure out how to turn that opposition into a winning strategy. They agree that they need a stronger message about helping working-class Americans who propelled Trump to a surprising win and a better way to communicate that message, especially amid the daily cacophony that has so far characterized Trump's presidency. But they are still struggling with how to do that, exactly, and spent much of the three-day conference dissecting 2016's difficult losses that caught them unaware. “We're still going through the seven stages of something,” says New York Rep. Joe Crowley, the Democratic conference chairman and the organizer of the event. “But we're getting to the point though that we're realizing, look, we have a role to play, and a meaningful one.

People started to praise him and still do, considering him somewhat of a deity and referring to him as the Son of God. This isnt wrong; Jesus is God because we are all God. Yes, you were created by God, but for that same reason you are God. You dont need to look upwards to pray, but rather inwards. Jesus discovered this by connecting with the Divine, the same way we all can, too. Numerous spiritual teachers today, like Eckhart Tolle , Deepak Chopra, and so on, encourage us to recognize the truth about religions. They’re not as different as they seem, as they all encourage us to look inward and find the universal truth of our inherent divinity. As Eckhart Tolle wrote, “All religions are equally false and equally true, depending on how you use them. You can use them in the service of the ego, or you can use them in the service of the Truth. If you believe only your religion is the Truth, you are using it in the service of the ego.

Building a great big wall will not close the gap. Jorge Duenes/Reuters Ashwini Deshpande , University of Delhi US President Donald Trump wants to build a wall along the US-Mexican border. Britain wants to retreat into its shell to become an isolated island state . In France, far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen launched her campaign by saying, "The divide is no longer between the left and the right, but between the patriots and the globalists." Enthusiasm for inward-looking, protectionist economic agendas is sweeping across Europe, leaving xenophobic hatred in its wake. Clearly, the experience of the past three decades of globalisation has produced massive dissatisfaction: so much that naïve, misplaced and often frightening measures are seen as genuine solutions by large parts of the electorate in the richest nations of the world. Rising inequality , which has accompanied globalisation, has sprung to the fore as a key concern among economists, politicians and the public.

At the Crunchies, Peretti called them out for looking inward. Where my doomsday preppers at? I just want to see if, like, youll let me crash on your bunker couch in the end times, she said. Or you could just fix public schools right now. The line got one of the biggest claps during her monologue. Mahan, who founded Brigade with billionaire Sean Parker, was one of many among tech executives who signed a joint statement opposing Trumps executive orders on immigration. Yet the data that he uses in his pitches to venture capitalists highlights how much potential there is for technology to make people of all stripes feel like their votes matterif these apps and tools can make it easier and more attractive to cast those ballots in a way that feels meaningful. Engagement is one chronically problematic area that can keep disrupters in the middle ground, after an election in which about 40% of eligible voters did not turn out.

You have mentioned in the past, I think it was in your book Fixing Britain, that our own government, whether elected politicians or enforcers in the civil service, must not suffocate our lifeline into the 21st-century.

In the service of the Truth, religious teachings represent signposts or maps left behind by awakened humans to assist you in spiritual awakening, that is to say, in becoming free of identification with form.

Additionally, the X-ray data also indicate that radiation from material surrounding this black hole has consistently surpassed what is called the Eddington limit, which is defined as a balance between the outward pressure of radiation from the hot gas and the inward pull of the gravity of the black hole. Seeing evidence of such rapid growth may help astronomers understand how supermassive black holes were able to reach masses about a billion times higher than the sun when the universe was only about a billion years old. “This event shows that black holes really can grow at extraordinarily high rates, said co-author Stefanie Komossa of QianNan Normal University for Nationalities in Duyun City, China. This may help understand how precocious black holes came to be. Lin and his team will continue to monitor this event, and they expect the X-ray brightness to fade over the next few years, meaning the supply of ‘food’ for this long lunch will soon be consumed.

Several motivations are driving the Trump administration onto its collision course with Iran (including—as a subject for another timeTrump going all in with the right-wing government of Israel). There is the general and enduring negative view of Iran among Americans; capitalizing on this is exploitation that Trump shares with many politicians of both parties. There is the legacy of using opposition to the nuclear accord as a way of frustrating and opposing Barack Obama at every turn—something that Trump shares with other Republicans. Somewhat more specific to Trump and his team is how confrontation with Iran is a way of putting the specific, named face of a nation-state onto the Islamophobia that pervades the Trump White House . Other states would not serve that purpose as well, including the other six of the states subject to the total ban on inward travelers.

From there it is possible to see with equanimity and to respond precisely and effortlessly with actions that are appropriate to the circumstance. This is not a call for passivity, but rather a call to wisdom and clear-hearted action. The greater the adversity the deeper we most go and the greater wisdom heartfulness we bring forth and sustain. That is what I have found to be true for myself and perhaps it is true for you as well. So, the worst of times can drive us inward with greater intensity and devotion and then outward with clarity, precision, and tenacity. It is there we reveal, once again the best of times, a wisdom, compassion, and truth of life that can guide effective action and serve as a beacon for humankind. It is from this basic well-being that we can become selfless agents of change according to our skills, capacities, and circumstance.
