Swahili Gospel Mission many repented and placed faith in Jesus
Swahili Tribe Gospel Mission with Pastor Amos Lapore of Kenya
Essentially, there will be two rounds of significant lake-effect snow from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to western and Upstate New York. Keep in mind that the first round of lake-effect snow already took place on Tuesday.
– Wednesday: Lake snowbands disrupted from west to east by weak reinforcing cold front, more widespread light-moderate snow. Then, bands redevelop later (round two begins).
– Thursday: Lake-effect snow (round two) continues
– Later Friday: Lake-effect snow ends
Ater—after the flood—God began to look for a man who would become the head of a special nation, destined to bring unique blessings to all mankind.
Eventually God found the man He was looking for in the person of Abraham.
Genesis 18:19 reveals the special element in Abraham’s character that caused God to choose him over all the men of his day: “For l have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD , to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”
God chose Abraham for one primary reason: He knew He could count on him to train and discipline his children and his household in the way of the Lord.
What tremendous importance God must attach to this aspect of a man’s character!
God expected Abraham to “command” his children and his household.
The word command sounds undemocratic to some Western ears.
But it is the key word in this passage.
There are times when a man has both the right and the duty to command.
When he stands as God’s representative and governor in his home, he must not be weak and compromising.
He must say firmly to his wife and children, “I require you to do so-and-so.”
Some men may ask, “What will my wife and children say?
They aren’t used to hearing me speak like that!”
May I suggest how they will react?
It may take them several minutes to recover from the shock, but eventually they will say, “At last—we’ve got a man in the house!”
Both the wife and the children know in their hearts who ought to lead, and they will respond to a father who takes his rightful place.
Many women have taken the lead in the home by default because their husband failed to do it; and they would be happy to give it up if the man would take over.
If there is no clear path to safety or you are physically unable to travel for whatever the reason, take cover in the first safe place available. From there you can consider a safer place or move deeper into the one you are at presently. The chaos may escalate fast and then subside or last into the night and next day. You may have to stay put for some time, so get comfortable and stay as quiet as possible.
Depending on the size and scope of what is occurring, the response from law enforcement or government forces may not come for hours, days, or even weeks. If the situation is very severe, the government may retreat and prioritize the securing and safety of government buildings, personnel, and officials. Many high ranking government officials will be moved to the safety of bunkers that your well-received tax dollars paid to be built. There are many all over the country and in other countries, as well.
Look around your safe place for anything you can use to defend your spot from marauders. Unless they have guns, you can defend against many people if they have a small area to enter through. Just one or a couple of people can hold of many people if the entrance is small and you have sharp or blunt instruments of pain to offer anyone seeking access. The intruders will have to enter one at a time, unless they are trained in surge techniques of mass-force entrance maneuvers. They might move on to easier pickings and leave you alone for the time being.
Zhou Xi, director of the CAS Chongqing Green Technology Research Institute, told local reporters the system can distinguish between identical twins, unravel layers of makeup and still identify an individual if they’ve packed on or shed kilos.
“The facial recognition system is not only accurate but also quick to recognise,” Xi said.
The system scored the highest accuracy in China topped Carnegie Mellon University’s global standards, beating its predecessors’ best accuracy record of 97.6 percent.
Researchers said the system is equipped with enhance learning abilities that it will automatically changes characteristics of the subject, therefore it functions stably and accurately in a dynamic environment as well.
Our vision is that by 2025 the military could influence the weather on a mesoscale (<200 km 2 ) or microscale (immediate local area) to achieve operational capabilities such as those listed in Table 1.
The capability would be the synergistic result of a system consisting of
(1) highly trained weather force specialists (WFS) who are members of the CINC’s weather force support element (WFSE);
(2) access ports to the global weather network (GWN), where worldwide weather observations and forecasts are obtained near-real-time from civilian and military sources;
(3) a dense, highly accurate local area weather sensing and communication system;
(4) an advanced computer local area weather-modification modeling and prediction capability within the area of responsibility (AOR);
(5) proven weather-modification intervention technologies; and
(6) a feedback capability.
Frans van der Lugt—a 76-year-old Jesuit priest from the Netherlands who had established a community center and farm near the city of Homs where he had worked for over forty years for the betterment of people with disabilities and for Christian-Muslim harmony—was shot dead in the garden of the community center. After the Islamist-led siege of Homs, the priest continued to care for the sick and the hungry. In early 2014 he made a number of YouTube videos, asking the international community to help the besieged city. Yet he chose to remain in Homs, struggling with the daily bombings and the lack of food, until he was slain.
Gregorios III Laham, Greek-Melkite Catholic patriarch of Antioch, visited some of the dozens of Christian churches hit by Islamic rebels, particularly churches in the historic town of Ma’aloula, where the Christian inhabitants still spoke Aramaic, the language of Jesus, and where some were executed for refusing to convert to Islam. (Click here for several pictures of the types of desecration that churches undergo if they fall into the hands of the Islamic terrorists. In St. Mary’s Greek Catholic Church alone, icons had their faces scratched out, church pews broken, statues of the Virgin Mary and Christ smashed, and Bibles burned.) In the prelate’s words: “An apocalyptic spectacle presented itself. Other churches have been destroyed in Syria, but I have never seen anything like this. I cried and I sought in vain a moment of solitude to pray. I am heartbroken. Ma’aloula’s four historic churches were hit. Our parish church, dedicated to Saint George, is riddled with bullets. The convent’s dome was damaged in two places. The walls were ripped open by cannon fire. Some parts of the convent is in danger of collapsing and must be rebuilt. The icons are scattered on the floor, dirty, or stolen. It is currently completely uninhabitable.” The patriarch further described the wanton destruction of churches as a “war crime.”
The symptoms of liver disease can also be seen in relation to the digestive system and can include things like:
– Indigestion and/or reflux
– The inability to tolerate alcohol
– The inability to tolerate fatty food
– Irritable bowel syndrome
The symptoms of stroke depend on which part of the brain is damaged. In some cases, a person may not know that a stroke has occurred.
Most of the time, symptoms develop suddenly and without warning. However, symptoms may occur on and off for the first day or two. Symptoms are usually most severe when the stroke first happens, but they may slowly get worse.
A headache may occur if the stroke is caused by bleeding in the brain. The headache:
– Starts suddenly and may be severe
– Occurs when you are lying flat
– Wakes you up from sleep
– Gets worse when you change positions or when you bend, strain, or cough
Other symptoms depend on how severe the stroke is and what part of the brain is affected. Symptoms may include:
– Change in alertness (including sleepiness, unconsciousness, and coma)
– Changes in hearing
– Changes in taste
– Changes that affect touch and the ability to feel pain, pressure, or different temperatures
– Confusion or loss of memory
– Difficulty swallowing
– Difficulty writing or reading
– Dizziness or abnormal feeling of movement (vertigo)
– Lack of control over the bladder or bowels
– Loss of balance
– Loss of coordination
– Muscle weakness in the face, arm, or leg (usually just on one side)
– Numbness or tingling on one side of the body
– Personality, mood, or emotional changes
– Problems with eyesight, including decreased vision, double vision, or total loss of vision
– Trouble speaking or understanding others who are speaking
– Trouble walking
Dangerous winter travel will continue in all the typically hardest-hit Great Lakes snowbelts. Major travel corridors have been paralyzed and shut down in some cases. Major highways that will see the worst impacts include:
– Interstate 90 from northeast of Cleveland to near Rochester, New York; worst impacts near and just south of Buffalo.
– Interstate 81 north of Syracuse, New York, including the Watertown, New York, area.
– Interstate 94 from the Michigan-Indiana border to around Battle Creek, Michigan.
– All of Interstate 196 in west Michigan.
– Interstate 96 from Grand Rapids to Muskegon, Michigan.
– U.S. Highway 131, a major north-south freeway in west Michigan.
– U.S. Highway 31 in west Michigan, including the freeway section from Grand Haven to Ludington.
– Interstate 75 from Gaylord, Michigan, north to the Mackinac Bridge.
Parts of far northern Indiana could see a glancing blow from some of the lake-effect snow bands, but effects along the Indiana Toll Road and I-94 in northern Indiana should not be as severe as for locations across the state line in Michigan.
The setup is so volatile that lightning is occurring with some of the snow squalls. Thundersnow was reported in Buffalo, New York, Monday evening and may occur, at times, through the duration of this event.
The thundersnow is a result of very cold air blowing over relatively warm water, setting up a large vertical temperature difference and causing thunderstorms to form.
Lake Superior and Lake Michigan saw the first lake-effect snow Sunday and Monday. Snow continues to fall south of Lake Superior and east of Lake Michigan. At times, snowfall rates could reach one inch per hour in those locations.
The wind will also be quite strong, particularly on Tuesday, but also again Wednesday night into Thursday, which will create blowing snow. The wind will also make it feel even colder, as the wind chill values will be low.
Two factors could combine contribute to extremely high snowfall totals in localized areas.
First, wind directions will only shift slightly during this event. That means lake-effect snow bands will tend to hammer the same areas for a protracted period of time.
Second, the large temperature difference between the lake water and the air above will create an unstable atmosphere, which allows air to rise more quickly and therefore to generate snow more efficiently. Snowfall rates could reach 3 inches per hour in the snowbands east of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
Research has shown that November storms produce the highest amount of precipitation for lake-effect events. Because the atmosphere overall is warmer in November compared to January, it is able to contain more water vapor which in turn produces more snowfall, according to The Weather Channel winter weather expert, Tom Niziol.
SEATTLE — After months of research, scientists have identified the pathogen at the heart of the wasting disease that’s been killing starfish by the millions along the Pacific shores of North America, according to research published Monday.
They said it’s a virus that’s different from all other known viruses infecting marine organisms. They’ve dubbed it “sea star associated densovirus.”
“When you look on a scale of hundreds and hundreds of animals, which we did, it’s very clear that the virus is associated with symptomatic sea stars,” said Ian Hewson, a microbiologist at Cornell University and lead author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
