Beware of Pride... The Lord`s Prophet Warns!!!

Talk By; 
President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
My beloved brethren and sisters, I rejoice to be with you in another glorious general conference of the Church. How grateful I am for the love, prayers, and service of the devoted members of the Church throughout the world. May I commend you faithful Saints who are striving to flood the earth and your lives with the Book of Mormon. Not only must we move forward in a monumental manner more copies of the Book of Mormon, but we must move boldly forward into our own lives and throughout the earth more of its marvelous messages. This sacred volume was written for us—for our day. Its scriptures are to be likened unto ourselves. (See 1 Ne. 19:23.) The Doctrine and Covenants tells us that the Book of Mormon is the “record of a fallen people.” (D&C 20:9.) Why did they fall? This is one of the major messages of the Book of Mormon. Mormon gives the answer in the closing chapters of the book in these words:…

A Mindful Shift of Focus

Throughout the day, we get frustrated, irritated, angry. We are frustrated in traffic, when a loved one doesn’t behave the way we like, when someone tells us we’re wrong, when technology doesn’t work the way we want, when dinner is ruined, among many other daily stresses. These frustrations can build up into unhappiness, relationship problems, work problems, built up stress, blowing your top at someone when you lose your cool. Not always helpful stuff! I’m going to suggest a mindful shift in focus to deal with frustrations. It’s a mindfulness practice, and I highly recommend it. We’ll start by talking about where frustration comes from, then how to mindfully shift.

The Thinking Habit That Changed My Life

"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it." --William Arthur Ward

I remember one evening, when my life was pretty different and I was overweight and deeply in debt and a smoker and had such a hard time changing things … I wasn’t feeling too good about my life.
I felt horrible about myself, and wondered why I was stuck. I felt hopeless and helpless, and generally depressed about the state of things around me.
Then I looked up at the sky, and saw the stars set in a deep blue-black canvas. And I thought, what a miracle life is.
And I resolved to mentally list the things I had in my life that were good.
My list of good things was something like this:

Reconciling a Heartrending Loneliness

“The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved.” ― MOTHER TERESA (1910–1997) There is far too much loneliness in our world. Ever more so these days – in this day and age of modern convenience and technology and ease – there is a polarised sense of isolation. And one needn’t be single. So many lonely people are lonely in the busiest of places; in the noisiest of lives; in the ‘sanctity’ of marriage. Loneliness is a manifestation of soul where the person is bereft of love. We can connect loneliness with a lack of experienced love. We may struggle to connect that we are loved; we may not see it.

Nigeria: See the 1st Ever Urhobo Graduate

M.G. Ejaife, is the first Urhobo university graduate, graduating with a B.A. degree from Durham University in 1948.

M. G. Ejaife was an Urhobo nationalist from Okpara Inland and the first principal of the premier Urhobo College Effurun, Warri. He was one of two recipients of scholarship awards from Urhobo Progress Union during World War II years.

This is the world’s most expensive car

£32 million. That's how much you'll need to lay claim to owning the most expensive car... in the world. Yep, a Ferrari 250 GTO just changed hands for $52 million after being sold by car collector, Paul Pappalardo, who's owned it since 1984. That's a 49 per cent increase on the previous most expensive car in the world - an ex-Stirling Moss Ferrari GTO - which sold for £21.6m last June, and £6000 when new. That's a 533233.33 per cent increase from the original price...

While details of the buyer are a bit murky, they've got themselves a rather tasty car. Chassis #5111 has history galore, having won at the 1963 Tour de France, and it's one of just 33 Series 1 GTOs left in existence. Hardly surprising, because they were homologation cars for Group 3 Grand Touring Car racing, and the going tended to get a bit... crashy in the sixties. They were pretty exclusive, too - Enzo Ferrari himself insisted on vetting every customer.

Relationship And Sexual Impurity

By Is it possible for cat and rat to stay peacefully together in the same cage? ABSOLUTELY NO! It is either the cat kills the rat or the rat runs away from the cat for peace to reign. Dear friend, you are not married to that man and yet you want to kill yourself over him? You are in a relationship with a man and all he does is to beat you at the slightest provocation because he has promised you marriage? You keep allowing him to take advantage of you just because of the monetary things he gives you and the promise of taking you to the marriage altar? Can those things buy back your dignity and virtues that you have lost? NO! You don't have to remain in that bondage! Come out! God will provide for your needs and will give you the husband after His heart. Let abuser go with his money and all the other alluring things he brings to you. love is deeper than that.
Don't be scared; your future is not in the things he gives you, your fut…

How to Break Up with Dignity

Breaking up is hard to do. But, it doesn't have to be a hot mess. Yes, there will be hard feelings, but if you can just refrain from throwing things, you might just come out of this a better person. There's usually no need to act like a screaming toddler (except when there is). We're firm believers that an amicable, calm breakup is a sign of both true maturity and, in a funny way, love and respect for your former partner.

LADIES !!! Your Boyfriend Is Not Your Friend

You've probably noticed by now that, in addition to being adorable, Zooey Deschanel is also really, really funny. So, it only makes sense that when she founded HelloGiggles, she enlisted the help of Sophia Rossi and Molly McAleer to create a hub for hilarity. Trust, the musings of HG will have you laughing out loud.

I had a tough-love therapist awhile ago who frustrated me to no end. I’d complain about the behavior of men I was dating and most of the time her response was simply, “That’s because he is not your friend.”

My response was always to sit back in my chair and stubbornly stare at the wall. I couldn’t quite wrap my head around it.

Your boyfriend is not your friend.

Slowly over time, as I’ve aged from a 22-year-old deer-in-headlights to an actual adult, I’ve started to understand what my therapist meant. In retrospect, it was the most important dating advice I’ve ever received. It helped me to relax. By the time I hit my late 20s, my outlook on dating had change…

People Who Cheat Are More Likely To Forgive Cheaters - New Research

New research suggests that unfaithful partners are more likely to forgive others' infidelity than those who have never strayed.

In a recent study published in the Journal of Sexuality and Culture, researchers Desiree I. Sharpe, Andrew S. Walters, and Matt J. Goren tested attitudes towards infidelity based on gender and past cheating experience.

Turning Setbacks Into Success

By From the time we are babies, we have setbacks: we don't get fed fast enough or have a wet diaper changed promptly, our frustrations leading to crying and tantrums. Setbacks, disappointments, and obstacles are unavoidable as we progress through life. It is how we handle our setbacks that will determine the results we create. Will they stop us from being successful or are there ways to turn them around to our benefit?
Quitting or Winning
In my office I have the following quote prominently displayed: Winners Never Quit and Quitters Never Win. How true! When we move out into the world and begin taking risks such as starting relationships or jobs, we may come face to face with obstacles. The intimacy of a growing relationship or the challenges of a new job may force us to examine our fears and "stopping points." Do we plunge ahead despite our perceived limitations or do we take the easy road and stop? What if we want and choos…

BMW shows off self-driving cars that can “drift” around bends

BMW Debuts World’s First Self-Drifting Car
BMW has shown off self-driving cars that can “drift” around bends and slalom between cones.

The modified 2-Series Coupe and 6-Series Gran Coupe are able to hurtle round a racetrack and control a power slide without any driver intervention.

Using 360-degree radar, ultrasonic sensors and cameras, the cars sense and adapt to their surroundings.

BMW demonstrated its latest autonomous driving technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
