It’s quite interesting, to say the least. This is why, for me personally, I take great interest in the spiritual nature of things, and, when it comes to extraterrestrial contact, there is no better place to realize the spiritual connection from a mainstream perspective than by studying the beliefs of indigenous cultures.

Haha! Lucky riders on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland were treated to a live Jack Sparrow animatronics performance yesterday by Johnny Depp. He made a surprise visit to the park as part of a PR stunt. It's fun to hear the passengers as they realize that the real Johnny Depp is standing right in front of them.

Hope is the virtue of a heart that doesn't lock itself into darkness, that doesn't dwell on the past, does not simply get by in the present, but is able to see a tomorrow. The New Age movement, Buddhism, and other spiritual texts often encourage only focusing on the present, which is beautiful. Ultimately, once you realize that time is an illusion, the present moment is really all that is. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't learn from your past nor does it mean you can't visualize the future and shouldn't strive to create a better one for yourself and all of humanity. Part of focusing on the present moment includes creating your own reality and redefining your future, because the present affects the future, just as the past affects the present, because time is non-linear! The third part of the Pope's speech addressed the need for what he calls a revolution of tenderness, which is essentially a strong form of compassion and love for all.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) admitted on Thursday that the Democratic Party's "message has not been clear enough." During an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Cummings called for the Democratic Party to be a big tent party. This has become a chief criticism of the party after Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez said that being pro-life was not possible for Democrats. Former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele asked Cummings about the Unity Tour held by Perez and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), which was prone to awkward moments that showed some of the Democratic Party's divisions. "How do Democrats get themselves on the same page to speak consistently and coherently about policy going into the next election, when they can't even agree on what it means to be a Democrat?" Steele asked. "Mike, the first thing we've got to do, is that we've got to realize that we've got to have a big tent,'" Cummings began.

Seth Meyers has seemed to realize that his best line of attack on Donald Trump is to use the presidents own words against him. On Late Night , Meyers argued that almost every action Trump has taken during his first 100 days in office, there is a Trump tweet that argues against that actionat least when it was taken by President Barack Obama. It is at this point like a law of physics: For every Trump action, theres an equal and opposite Trump clip, Meyers said on his Wednesday show. Meyers happened upon this idea thanks to one particular issue that Trump had completely backtracked, according to Meyersexecutive orders. Particularly, the number of executive orders that Trump has signed during his relatively short tenure in the White House. The White House released a statement bragging that Trump will have signed 30 executive orders during his first 100 days, which is ridiculous, Meyers said.

What adds an extra sheen of authenticityto the proceedings, though, is how much of their own lives Delaney and Horgan inject into the mix. One of the most realistic elements of the show startedby accident. The two creators were so used to laughing at each others jokes in real life, as normal friendsare wont to do, they didnt realize they were doing it in character, too, on the show.It seems like a minor feature, a married couple demonstrably finding each other funny. Thisrecurring detailquickly helped set the show apart, though, from the legion of sitcoms where audience applause is piped into anaustere, laughless void asthe leads lob zingers at each other. It wasnt a conscious decision, Delaney says. I didnt know we were doing it until people started telling us we were doing it.

Sharing your backstory is a way for leaders to make a deep connection with their people, which can lead to a more trusting relationship. Vision Visionary leaders are the dreamers who make us realize anything is possible, says Chinsky Matuson. They have a vivid imagination that inspires others to get on board and come along for the ride, she says. Instead of asking the question, Why? they ask, Why not? To assess where you are on the visionary scale, ask yourself these three questions: Am I focused on everyday tasks or long-term outcomes? How often do I take time out of my day or week to think about the future? Who in the organization has potential that is not being realized, and what can I do to help unleash it? Your answers will help you realize in which areas your vision may be lacking.

foobar2000 is a powerful and flexible music player with a unique modular design and a raft of hidden features. Its primary function is media management, and it specializes in ripping and converting CDs copying tracks your discs for you, tagging them automatically and keeping everything neatly organised in an efficient media library - but to be think this is dismissive of the program is to do it a disservice. It might 'only' be a music conversion and playback tool, but it's incredibly well designed and adaptable. Right from the offset, even if you don't realize it (see below), foobar2000 probably does pretty much everything you could ask of it. But one of the most exciting features of the program is that is open for developers to build plug-ins and extensions that add even more features. As standard, there are a number of music-tweaking effects available to play with, including the all-important equalizer, but you'll also find a crossfader, a downmixing option, and a couple of resampling tools.

How could we otherwise? So, the early films looked like theater plays because that was the prism we understood. A lot of early VR looks like movies because thats what we understand. Its when we go out of our comfort zone, when we really start innovating, that VR will become remarkable. Were not expanding our minds to realize that once we step through the window, the [area we can comprehend in VR] is infinite. Infinitely out, infinitely in," Taylor posits. "So, we can look at the body and say, through VR, we now know much better how the body works. What were not thinking about is that we can go down to the subatomic level to understand DNA strands, and redesign DNA. Still not excited? Taylor continues, At the same time, this is a media that lets us zoom out to explore black holes.

Maybe Michael Strahan was in such a rush to get away from Kelly Ripa , he didnt realize how much extra money he was running from. Now, Kelly is laughing all the way to the bank! “Since Michael left ‘Live!’ to join ‘Good Morning America’ full-time, he’s not getting endorsement deals shilling for such brands as Metamucil, Dr. Pepper and Right Guard,” a source explained. Kelly isnt subject to the rules of ABC News, so she’s happy to be pulling in extra millions. But Michael may still think he got out ahead of the game!

"We would all achieve so much more if we broke down those negative barriers at an early age." Clarida and Lieb have both worked in marketing for years and often discussed how they could parlay their professional experience and personal journeys as moms into making a positive impact on the world.

Solving The Problem Of Choice, Via Personalization Unless youre one of the 2% of vacationers whove taken a cruise, then you probably dont realize the size and scale of the modern cruise ship. Take the Regal Princess. Shes almost 1,100 feet longnearly four football fields. John Padgett , Carnivals Chief Experience Officer and one of the 15 largest cruise ships. [Photo: Flickr User Markel ] Her 19 decks tower 200 feet above the water. She carries 3,500 passengers and 1,300 crew, and ranks as one of the 15 largest cruise ships in the world. As big as she is, she probably wont be all that remarkable in a decade. Its because of simple economics. In the 1990s, ship sizes began to explode when cruise operators realized that even if they doubled how many passengers could fit onto a ship, the combined costs of crew and fuel didnt increase nearly as fast.

Can you confirm this? Done. Shouldnt: The Job Description Makes It Clear That Degree Is Mandatory Some companies have hard and fast minimum degree requirements. Its hard to get around this, and may be a waste of time if you apply to a blind mailbox (or through an online portal) without that piece of paper. Also, realize that a bunch of other candidates who apply will have the degree, so when a blob of resumes comes in through the system, whose do you think will be reviewed first? Related: Can Using Artificial Intelligence Make Hiring Less Biased? Thats right, the ones with the mandatory degree. If you feel very strongly about making a case for yourself, you need to get directly to someone of influence on the inside and state your case, rather than relying on the scanning software. Should: You Lack A Preferred Credential (Or Two), But Have Almost Everything Else You do realize that most job descriptions are giant wish lists, yes? Few people are going to match every single qualification.
