First of all I want to take this opportunity to wish you all the best for this New Year 2015 that is just around the corner, bringing with it an atmosphere of joy and happiness, but not only! As in what concerns you, Richard, the year 2015 will also mark an important period of change and transformation, a fresh start that will push you towards a path of happiness and stability in different areas of your life, and more precisely in your love life, career, financial success, family relations and all the areas of your life that you are concerned about at the moment.
Richard, in many aspects the year 2015 will be a lot busier then several last years, and especially in the areas where talent and creative abilities are important. A lot of changes of the prior importance are going to happen in your life during the next coming months, which is due to powerful planetary movement happening in your natal chart and which is going to have numerous important repercussions, making 2015 unforgettable for you.
Richard, of course I am going to explain to you in details everything that is going to happen and I have also worked on an outline of the sequence of the astrological events that are going to lead to these changes, however I would like to start with the explanation on how exactly I have been able to find out all these details.
I have started with the in depth analysis of your personal astral configuration using your details, such as your date of birth 3rd January 1994, your astrological sign Capricorn and your place of birth tuticorin. This has allowed me to draw a picture of your natal chart and then to see what exactly is going to happen in your life, like for example the Mercury Retrograde happening at the very beginning of 2015. You should also be aware of Uranus being in Opposition to the Lunar Node, as this is going to bring some particular sensitive aspects into your everyday life. But I do not want to be too technique, Richard, as what is the most important for you is to know what repercussions all these planetary movements and shifts are going to have on your everyday life, and we are going to come to this point shortly.
Richard, as you know I am used to be precise in my work and I always double check each and every statement and prediction I give you about your future in order to be sure you get the best out of all the opportunities that are waiting for you, and of course while working on this reading and to give you a broader picture of this important year 2015, Richard, I have completed the analysis of your natal chart with a numerological reading based on your name Richard, and also based on different other personal details you have provided me with.
According to my analysis this year 2015 will be marked by an important peak point, that is going to be a start of a new period in different areas of your life, and this peak date is going to be particularly important in what concerns your love life, as the way you act and also the timing are going to define not only the short-term atmosphere in your romantic sphere , but also this period is going to have important repercussions for the next years to come and in the long-term period. This event is going to happen at the same time when Mercury is going to be in retrograde motion which coincides with the peak period according to your numerological analysis. Richard, it means that at this time in 2015 (I will need to look into it in more details later on), you will need to be in the right time and in the right place and also act in a very precise manner in order to seize this unique opportunity in your love life.
Let me be direct with you Richard, this is your time! And you will need to take an important decision in regards to your love life during this crucial peak date that will define all the future course of your romantic relationships; the importance of this decision cannot be underestimated and it is completely unthinkable that you take it without being properly guided and informed. Richard, you should be aware of all the pitfalls and misunderstandings to choose what is the best for you and the stars can show you the way to how make the best choices, as yes, Richard, the planets will open the doors to happy and flourishing love life for you but it is up to you to pass through.
Richard, but this is just the beginning of all the important changes that are going to happen in your life during the year 2015! Another area of your life where the influence of planetary shifts is going to have a huge impact will be your career path and professional environment, and this both according to you natal chart and also from the numerological point of view. This year 2015 will be very busy for you, Richard, as Jupiter is going through your 6th house, which is a promise of an important encounter with the person who is going to play a very important role in your professional life in the future.
The next point which is important to emphasize for you, Richard, is that due to the very strong interaction between Jupiter going through your natal chart and taking into account the position of Mercury there is a strong link between your professional and career sector with the friendship, mutual understanding. It seems like success in one of them will nourish success in the other one. During 2015 you will meet a person (I cannot tell for now if you already know this person or not, this point needs to be explored in a more detailed report) that will push you towards an important opportunity in your career sector, and thus giving you the chance to find more friends in your professional environment, who in their turn will open more and more chances for further professional development. The crucial thing here is not to miss out this encounter with the person who will actually start this so-called "chain reaction" and for this you will need to be in the right place at the right time and act in a very precise manner, so that you can benefit from this chance to get your professional success to the next level!
As you already know Richard, this encounter is going to happen during the peak period (which I have discovered for you according to the numerological analysis of your personal details) and I was so astonished to see that this peak period coincides with Mars entering your sign Capricorn, so you should absolutely not let this chance go by and benefit from positive influence of the planets to boost your life in different spheres!
Moreover, I have clearly sensed that you have some kind of project on your mind, which you have been thinking about for some time already, and this year (let me mention, Richard, that it is going to be the year of Wooden Goat according to the Chinese astrology) will also be beneficial in terms of the realization of this project, as additional success and financial independence gained through career development, which I have just talked about, will give you a possibility to put more time and money into this particular project, so important for you. The negative aspect between Saturn and Uranus present in your astral sky since 2012 and which was blocking you to the certain degree, is going to shift, opening you the way towards new achievements. However you should be aware, that 2015 will set the basis for the future, as during this time you will absolutely need to start moving forward in order to get the results you are hoping to see some time later.
Generally, this year will be very beneficial and lucky for you in all the areas of your life you are concerned about at the moment, including financial success. Richard, I can see that at the moment you are particularly worried about your financial situation and this point stands out clearly in your natal chart, and also it makes your worried not only about yourself, but also about some people that are very close to you and who are important to you, Richard. Let me reassure you, that during the peak period you will be able to completely change this situation. On one hand it will be due to the career progress we have talked about before, but on the other hand during the year 2015 you will have an important financial opportunity that you need to seize. However I cannot tell you more about this point simply because a more detailed study of your natal chart is necessary in order to identify all the lucky dates during this year, so that you do not pass by this unique chance to achieve prosperity.
Richard, as you can see all the areas of your life are going to be touched by the important and crucial positive changes waiting for you in 2015, starting from your love life, your professional success, financial situation, family relations, friends, home and a lot more. On the page below that I have set up for you Richard you can discover more about what the next year has ins tore for you:
To summarize the most important changes that are going to happen in your life will be:
-IN TERMS OF YOUR LOVE LIFE: you will need to take an important decision in your love life in regards to the situation you find yourself in at the moment, and this decision absolutely needs to be the right one for you, Richard, as it will define not only your immediate future in this area of your life, but it will also have important repercussions for the years to come. This decision needs to be taken having all the information at hand in order to avoid all the hidden pitfalls and to be sure you will be completely satisfied with your love life in the future.
-IN WHAT CONCERNS YOUR PROFESSIONAL AREA: During 2015 you will have an opportunity to meet a person, who is going to play an important role in your professional and financial success in the future, as this person will open you the doors to the new professional opportunity.

Richard, I can clearly sense that you are very excited about all these changes and I know that you really need and deserve them, but at the same time you also know that the astrological influences can only open the doors and you and only you will be responsible for going through them! Yes, Richard, you will need to be alert and active and act in a very precise moment in order to make your dreams come true. I want to warn (as I am here for you and everything I am writing now is only in your best interest, dear friend), that if you just count on stars to do everything at your place, you risk missing out your chances and all the opportunities. I want you to understand, Richard, that you are the master of your destiny and astrological events only give you opportunities to make changes, they give you a choice now during the coming year 2015 to change your life for the better on different levels, but at the end what counts is your free will and you will decide if you grab this chance or just let it go.

One of the biggest issues facing employers today is the safety of their employees. Workplace accidents are increasingly common. In 2003, for instance, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported a total of 4.4 million nonfatal workplace injuries in private industries. Organizations have a moral responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of their members. Organizational practices that promote safety can also help a company establish competitive advantage by reducing costs and complying with safety laws.
Workplace safety can be quite expensive. Unintentional injuries alone cost more than $146.6 billion per year for medical and insurance costs, workers' compensation, survivor benefits, lost wages, damaged equipment and materials, production delays, other workers' time losses, selection and training costs for replacement workers, and accident reporting.
State and federal governments strictly regulate organizational safety practices. The government views safety violations very seriously, and the penalties for violating safety laws can be quite severe. In addition to being issued large fines, employers who violate safety regulations can be held liable for criminal charges. The following examples illustrate the types of penalties associated with such violations:
In November of 2004, OSHA fined General Motors (GM) Powertrain plant in Massena, NY for six serious safety violations, including an obstructed exit route, inadequate guarding of moving machine parts, and the failure to assess the need for personal protective equipment for workers. There were additional fines for recordkeeping violations, specifically underreporting injuries and illnesses. The penalty was $160,000.
In September of 2004, a Weyerhaeuser plant in West Virginia was cited for improper reporting of injuries and illnesses to OSHA. The fine was $77,000 and the company had nine months to undergo an independent audit of their recordkeeping practices.
In July of 2004, OSHA issued a proposed fine against Fru-Con Construction Corp in the amount of $280,000 for the company's negligence which resulted in the deaths of four employees. An improperly secured 2 million pound, 315 foot long launching truss collapsed, killing the four employees.
GOVERNMENT REGULATION OF SAFETY
PRACTICES AT THE WORKPLACE
Federal laws regulate the safety practices of most organizations. We limit our discussion to laws that affect a majority of organizations, but note that several additional laws exist which cover particular segments of the workforce. For instance, numerous laws pertain to government contractors, to specific states, and to specific industries (e.g., transportation, nuclear power, food, and drug).
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 is probably the most comprehensive and wide-ranging legislation in this area. It applies to nearly all U.S. workplaces. The act aims to ensure safe working conditions for every American worker by:
Setting and enforcing workplace safety standards;
Promoting employer-sponsored educational programs that foster safety and health; and
Requiring employers to keep records regarding job-related safety and health matters.
Three separate agencies were created by the act:
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) develop and enforce health and safety standards.
The Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission hear appeals from employers who wish to contest OSHA rulings.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health conducts health and safety research to suggest new standards and update previous ones.
The following discussion focuses on the safety standards imposed by OSHA and how they are enforced. OSHA has issued literally thousands of safety and health standards. Areas of basic concern include fire safety, personal protection equipment, electrical safety, basic housekeeping, and machine guards. Each standard specifies such things as permissible exposure limit, monitoring requirements, methods of compliance, personal protective equipment, hygiene facilities, training, and record-keeping.
To comply with these standards, most mid- to large-sized organizations employ safety professionals to keep up with them and ensure that each is being met. These professionals face too many specific issues to mention here, but some of the most important issues they must address appear in Figure 1.
Figure 1 OSHAEmployee Responsibilities
Companies with more than ten employees are subject to routine OSHA inspections. Companies with fewer than ten employees are exempt from such inspections, but can be investigated if a safety-related problem is brought to the attention of OSHA. High-hazard industries, such as manufacturing firms, chemical companies, and construction companies, are subject to inspections regardless of the number of employees.
OSHA conducts inspections based on the following priority classifications, which are listed in order of importance:
Imminent danger. OSHA gives top priority to workplace situations that present an "imminent danger" of death or serious injury to employees. The company must take immediate corrective action.
Fatality or catastrophe investigations. The second highest priority is given to sites that have experienced an accident that has caused at least one employee to die or three or more to be hospitalized. Employers must report these events within 8 hours. The inspection aims to determine the cause of the accident and whether any violation of OSHA standards contributed to it.
Employee complaint investigations. OSHA responds third to employee complaints about hazards or violations. The speed with which OSHA responds depends on the seriousness of the complaint. Employees may request to remain anonymous.
Referrals from other sources. Consideration is given to referrals of hazard information from federal, state and local agencies, individuals, organizations, and the media.
Follow-ups. OSHA sometimes will return to verify that violations have been corrected.
General programmed inspections. OSHA will also inspect an organization if it is a high-hazard industry or has a lost workday injury rate that is above the national norm for that industry.
When an OSHA inspection reveals that an employer has violated one of its standards, it issues a citation. The citation, posted near the site of the violation, lists the nature of the violation, the abatement period (i.e., the time frame within which the company must rectify the problem), and any penalty levied against the employer. Willful violations (i.e., those that an employer intentionally and knowingly commits) carry a penalty of up to $70,000 for each offense. If a death occurs because of a willful violation, the employer may be both fined and imprisoned.
Congress enacted the Hazard Communication Standard (more commonly referred to as the Employee Right-to-Know Law) in 1984. This law gives workers the right to know what hazardous substances they are dealing with on the job. A substance is considered hazardous if exposure to it can lead to acute or chronic health problems. Federal and state agencies have compiled lists of more than 1,000 substances deemed hazardous under this law. The law requires all organizations to (1) develop a system for inventorying hazardous substances, (2) label the containers of these substances, and (3) provide employees with needed information and training to handle and store these substances safely.
Employers typically violate the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard more frequently than any other OSHA standard. The majority of companies are cited for failing to have:
written hazard communication programs
an up-to-date hazardous chemical inventory list
properly labeled chemical containers
material safety data at the work site, in the form of material safety data sheets (MSDS)
training programs for teaching employees about the chemicals they work with
Government fines for right-to-know violations may be as high as $1000 per chemical for first violations and $10,000 per chemical for second violations. Additional penalties for environmental crimes include fines up to $75,000 per day and imprisonment.
Another law affecting organizational safety and health practices is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). An individual is protected by the ADA if he or she is disabled, that is, if the individual has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the individual's major life activities. According to the ADA regulations, temporary, non-chronic impairments that are short in duration and have little or no long-term impact are usually not considered disabilities under the act. For example, broken limbs, sprains, concussions, appendicitis, or influenza are not disabilities. However, if a broken leg did not heal properly and resulted in permanent impairment that significantly restricted walking or other major life activities, it could then be considered a disability.
In 2004, there were 15,376 total charges filed as ADA violations with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). From July 1992 (when the law first took effect) through the end of September 2004, employees filed 204,997 complaints with the EEOC. Employees who became disabled as the result of workplace conditions or injuries filed about half of these charges. Individuals with back impairments have lodged the greatest number of charges. People also frequently claimed emotional, neurological, and extremity impairments.
Penalties for ADA violations may be as high as $50,000 for initial violations and up to $100,000 for each subsequent violation. In addition, the Civil Rights Act of 1991 allows claimants to collect up to $300,000 in punitive damages for "willful" violations.
ACCIDENTS AND ACCIDENT
Despite laws designed to ensure safety at the workplace, U.S. companies' accident rates are alarmingly high. According to one estimate, employees lost eighty million workdays in 2002 from workplace injuries, and more than 3.7 million people suffered disabling injuries on the job that year.
What causes all of these industrial injuries? These causes can be divided into three categories: employee error, equipment insufficiency, and procedure insufficiency. Examples of causes falling within each category are listed here:
Employee error—misjudged situations; distractions by others; neuromuscular malfunctions; inappropriate working positions; and knowingly using defective equipment;
Equipment insufficiency—use of inappropriate equipment; safety devices being removed or inoperative; and the lack of such things as engineering controls, respiratory protection, and protective clothing;
Procedure insufficiency—failure of procedure for eliciting warning of hazard; inappropriate procedure for handling materials; failure to lock out or tag out; and a lack of written work procedures.
Workplace accidents pose serious problems for employees and for a firm's competitive advantage, but employers can prevent most of them. Many preventive strategies work.
Some people just seem to be accident prone. If some people do have inherent tendencies toward accidents, then organizations should be able to lower their accident rates by screening out accident-prone applicants. Research studies have discovered that individuals with certain personality characteristics are more likely than others to be involved in industrial accidents. For instance, one study found that people with higher accident rates tend to be impulsive and rebellious, and they tend to blame outside forces, rather than themselves, for their mishaps. Another study identified the following four "high-risk" personality characteristics:
Risk taking: high risk-takers actually seek out danger rather than trying to minimize or avoid it.
Impulsiveness: impulsive individuals fail to think through the consequences of their actions.
Rebelliousness: rebellious individuals tend to break established rules, including safety rules.
Hostility: hostile individuals tend to lose their tempers easily and thus engage in aggressive acts, such as kicking a jammed machine.
Many organizations now use personality tests to screen out individuals with accident-prone tendencies. For example, some companies use a test (called the Personnel Selection Inventory-Form 3S) to assess applicants' safety consciousness. One part of the test measures the degree to which individuals perceive a connection between their own behavior and its consequences. As noted earlier, individuals unable to see this connection are at greater risk for accidents.
Employers who provide all new employees with training on safe and proper job procedures experience fewer accidents. Employees should learn how to perform each of their tasks as safely as possible. Training should be very specific, as illustrated in the example that follows. This example covers the procedures to be followed by employees working at a large food manufacturing plant:
When picking up pans from the conveyor belt, pick up no more than two pans before you place them on the pan rack.
Stack roll pans no higher than the rear rail of the pan rack.
When you lift or lower the dough, keep both hands on the dump chain.
When you pull the dough trough away from the dough mixer, hold both hands on the front rail and not on the rail sides.
While safety training is essential, employees do not always apply what they have learned. Just as many automobile drivers know it is wrong to exceed legal speed limits, but do it anyway, workers may choose to ignore instructions and carry out procedures in their own, unsafe way. One way to mitigate this problem is to implement a safety incentive program. Such programs aim to motivate safe behavior by providing workers with incentives for avoiding accidents. The organization formulates safety goals (usually on a department-wide basis) and rewards employees if these goals are met. For example, a particular department may establish the goal of reducing lost-time accidents by 50 percent over the next three months. If this goal were to be met, all employees within that department would receive an incentive reward, usually in the form of a cash bonus or merchandise.
Safety incentive programs often work quite well. For example, Willamette Industries implemented a program because it was experiencing an average of thirty accidents per year that caused people to miss work. As a result of the program, the company went 450 days without a lost-time accident.
Two problems often arise with safety incentive programs, however. In some cases, workers get so caught up in trying to win incentive rewards that they conceal their injuries and do not report them. When injuries go unreported, injured workers relinquish their rights to workers' compensation and firms remain unaware of safety problems. Second, workers may continue to perform in an unsafe manner (e.g., take risky shortcuts) because they remain unconvinced that such behavior is likely to result in accidents. Unfortunately, these employees are grievously mistaken; unsafe behaviors are a leading cause of accidents. According to one estimate, for every 100,000 unsafe behaviors there are 10,000 near-miss accidents, 1,000 recordable accidents, 100 lost-time accidents, and 1 fatality.
Because employees who "know better" often continue to engage in accident-causing behavior, many employers have redirected their focus from accident prevention to the prevention of unsafe acts that could lead to an accident. To do so, firms conduct safety audits. A safety committee or supervisors who observe employees on the job and correct unsafe behaviors generally conduct such audits.
Each employee should be monitored according to a planned schedule, generally on a weekly basis, as follows:
STEP 1: OBSERVATION.
Stop in the work area for a few moments and observe worker's activities, looking for both safe and unsafe practices. Use the following guide:
Be alert to unsafe practices that the employee corrects immediately upon seeing you enter the area (putting on protective equipment, such as gloves or goggles).
Note whether appropriate protective clothing is being worn.
Observe how employees use tools.
Scrutinize the safety of the work area. For instance, is the floor slippery?
Determine whether rules, procedures, and operating instructions are being followed.
STEP 2: EMPLOYEE DISCUSSION.
These discussions should help employees recognize and correct their unsafe acts. When engaging in them, adhere to the following advice:
If you spot an unsafe act, be non-confrontational. Point out the violation and ask the worker to state what he or she was doing and what safety-related consequences may arise if such behavior continues. Your goal is to help, not blame. Audits should not result in disciplinary actions unless an individual consistently violates safety rules.
As you observe your employees, encourage them to discuss any safety concerns they may have and ask them to offer any ideas for safety improvement.
Commend any good performance that you observe.
STEP 3: RECORDING AND FOLLOW-UP.
Findings should be recorded in writing. Pursue any item discussed during the audit that requires follow-up.
Accident investigations determine accident causes so that changes can be made to prevent the future occurrence of similar accidents. "Near misses" should also be investigated so that problems can be corrected before serious accidents occur. Supervisors always play a key role in accident investigations. For minor accidents, investigation may be limited to the supervisor meeting with the injured worker and filing a report. In large-scale investigations, the supervisor is usually part of a team of experts, which may also include an engineer, maintenance supervisor, upper-level manager, and/or safety professional.
Accident investigations should be performed in the following manner. When an accident occurs, the investigator's first responsibility is to ensure the safety of all employees by:
making sure the injured are cared for and receive medical attention, if necessary;
guarding against a more dangerous secondary event by removing danger sources and evacuating other personnel from the area if necessary; and
restricting access to the area so no one else will be harmed, and so the scene will not be disturbed.
You should then begin an investigation to identify both the immediate and underlying causes of the accident. The immediate cause is the event that directly led to the accident, such as a slippery floor, failure to wear safety gear, or failure to follow proper procedures.
Immediate causes, while easily found, are not always very helpful in suggesting how future incidents of this nature can be avoided. To accomplish this aim, the investigator must discover the underlying cause of the accident. For example, suppose a worker slips and falls on spilled oil. The oil on the floor is the immediate cause of the accident, but you need to know why it was not cleaned up and why a machine was leaking oil in the first place. Poor training, lack of rule enforcement, low safety awareness, poor maintenance, or crowded work areas commonly underlie accidents.
The investigator should ensure the accident scene is kept intact until the investigation is finished, as this will be the only chance to view the scene exactly as it was at the time of the accident. If a camera is available, photographs of the scene should be taken. Nothing related to the incident should be destroyed or discarded. The investigator should inspect the location (e.g., check for chemicals, broken pieces of machinery) and interview injured or affected workers, eyewitnesses, and anyone else who may be familiar with the accident area. Interviews should be conducted immediately, while the incident is still fresh in everyone's mind. Individuals should give their own account of the incident; by letting them tell their stories wi

T: You don’t agree? What don’t you agree Gharpar.
(Children laughs, ST1 looks angrily around)
St1: Its Ghazanfar Sir, not Gharpar.
T: Ahu, Gharpar (more laughs)
T: That’s right Gharpar. You were telling me about your disagreement.
ST1 still annoyed takes a deep breath to calm himself and concentrate on the plan.
- I don’t agree with your assessment of the day Sir
- And why not
In a theatrical way –Because it’s raining and we can’t go out to play in recess. That’s the only time, we young minds, eager to learn, hopes of the future, can socialize properly which is very essential for our physical and emotional development.There fore, we cannot channel the extra energy youth produce in a constructive manners. Hence, with this extra energy still loaded in our shoulders, we start thinking about improper, even useless things which school strictly forbids us, of course for the betterment of ourselves. You see Sir now, that, this is not a day to come to school.
Teachers rubs his moustache thoughtfully,
-indeed, when you put it like this, it really doesn’t sound a balle balle day to come to school.
St 1 satisfied, sits down.
Teacher paces along the students one two rounds, rubs his big belly .
-Anyway, now that we are all here, we cannot do anything about it, can we?. So, open the books pg 111.
St2 raises his hand.

ST2: Actually our friend………… forgot one more thing to say.
T: Really? What is that?
ST2: Its raining so we are all gloomy and distracted. We all are remembering punjaab, the valleys, the flowers, the smell of the flowers ( his face takes a melancholic expression , as the teacher also gets gloomy)
Teacher here says- ooy oyy ki yaad kara dita ay?

ST2 :I can hear the sound of rain drops on the roofs of the houses( he put his hand on his ear like he actually hears it, teacher does the same), I can see mothers braiding their daughters hairs( he does the braiding impressions with his hands, same does the teacher), (his voice get louder) I can feel the heart of punjaab calling me,. PUTTERIIIII, PUTTERRIIIIII ( his hands are outstretched like he is about to answer the call, same does the teacher)
At this time, there are real tears in the teacher eyes, the student also acts like he is wiping his fake tears.
T: oooooyy Putter, putter, how true you speak..
He goes and hugs ST2 to consolidate.
-ALL IS WELL PUTTER, ALL IS WELL..
St 2 finally soothed ,leaves the embrace, he looks to his teacher like they undergo a great misery together.
ST2: ALL IS WELL SIR
They smile to each other. He sits down. Students for sure now, there will be no class.
Teacher wipes his tears.
-as long as we share the same heart we will live in punjaab regardless where we reside.
Childrens are not happy with their turtle speed progress, talks to each other.
T: come on now.Be quiet.Open your books, pg 111
ST1 elbow the ST3 to do something.ST3 raises his hand.
T: OOOy, this morning for a gloomy lot,you all seem a lot to say.Ahu putter.Speak up.
ST3 first look to his right then to his left as if asking what to do. When no one signals anything, he thinks and acts like he has a heart attack.
ST3 : I feel pain…he grumbles by holding his heart.
T: oooyy oyyss..ki ho ya?( uses endearments)What happened? Lay him down, lay him down quick…
ST1: I think he is having a heart attack
ST2; I think he stopped breathing
ST4: I think he is turning to blue
Teacher try to calm himself and the students.
- No panic, no panic. Your teacher is first-aid certified. I know CPR, move a side , move a side.(As children open space to him, he keeps on talking) how was it? Remember Singh, remember, first open air way.( opens air way)need give air fusion.
He comes close to boy to give air fusion, ST3 opens his eyes and shouts: I am awake. I am awake, no need any type of fusions
Teacher relieved but surprised:

They all leave the stage by making bhangra…
Staff reporter Jaya Polgar investigates a weird weight loss solution that is quickly gaining popularity in India
By Jaya Polgar | views 2,391,558 | comments 656
(Healthy Mum Daily) - For the past three months our readers have been going crazy over 1 internet product that are helping women in India and across the world to lose weight. This revolutionary system, called by some "The Holy Grail of Weight Loss" has been featured on countless popular TV shows, proven to be safe for ongoing use and best of all - it's totally affordable for anyone.
Waves of celebrities have lost a significant amount of body fat with just these diet cleanse. The effect is clinically proven to not just rapidly burn fat off your physique but as importantly, to flush out all the destructive toxins in your body and increase your metabolism, all without harming your immune system.
As we have often reported when researching the latest diet trends, losing weight often feels like an impossible challenge and all too frequently the results are painfully disappointing. However, after an exhaustive research effort including interviewing actual dieters using this exact system, we're more than excited about this breakthrough. Keep reading and you'll find out why we created this special report.
Dieting Resulted in Shedding at least over 14 kg in Just 1 Month for our readers!
The reason why most diets fail, in our opinion, is that they impose unrealistic restrictions on how you live your life. Some advocate eating tons of protein while others emphasize restricting carbohydrates. In either case, you're left with having to make rather drastic changes to the types of food you eat and when you eat it. In this special report, we take an in-depth look at an emerging and promising weight loss trend that we believe is a game changer, that won't require time in the gym or cutting your calories... and best of all it won't break the bank.
You may have heard of the enormously popular Pure Cambogia Ultra in the news. It is a chemical from Garcinia Cambogia - scientifically proven to tear away fat from you body. In studies by renowned health research institution UCLA in Los Angeles, United States - Pure Cambogia Ultra was proven to ignite your metabolism and your body's hidden fat burning capabilities by 318% when taken regularly. However, the problem encountered by many hoping to embrace this miracle dieting system, is that nearly 90% of the imitation Garcinia Cambogia products out there are NOT pure. Most fluctuate between the 60-70% purity levels - so we tracked down the original 'Pure Cambogia Ultra' to understand the difference. Pure Cambogia Ultra Formula claimed they delivered 95% pure extract to your body so to put it simply - we were intrigued.
If you're skeptical, you're not alone. When we first learned about this weight loss product, our diet fad radar went off right away.
Nevertheless, as we began to investigate the countless success stories reported by people from all around the globe, we decided that this weight loss trend was worthy of a closer examination. Moreover, we found it of particular interest that these people had not significantly changed their current lifestyles.
Our reader Abhilasha from Galway was reported to have lost more than 17 kg in just 5 weeks while being on the Pure Cambogia Ultra diet.
In the story on her blog she states, "I couldn't believe how easy it was. I didn't change my diet or my daily routine, but the fat melted off like it is butter. I love this stuff! Finally a diet that just works."
For the Healthy Mum Daily test, it was inevitable that I was to be the guinea pig for this diet since I was about to get married. I wanted to lose 6 kg for my wedding. In order to try the Pure Cambogia Ultra diet, I ordered the product online. Although there are many similar products available, I chose Pure Cambogia Ultra on the basis that it had been clinically tested and approved at GNP Labs in Los Angeles, California - an organization renowned for their strict guidelines on weight management products.
The discounted bottle of Pure Cambogia Ultra was delivered in a few days after ordering and shipping was very cheap which was a nice bonus (though read on as there is now actually a Free Trial offer with just a small shipping charge that wasn't previously available). Pure Cambogia Ultra is one of the most concentrated and purest weight loss products on the market.
Pure Cambogia Ultra has been clinically proven to:
Deliver 4 Times More Weight Loss Than Diet and Exercise Alone
Be Rich in Antioxidants - Beats Blueberries, and even Gogi Berries!!
Promote Cardiovascular and Digestive Wellness
Putting the Pure Cambogia Ultra to the Test
Pure Cambogia Ultra arrived within 4 days of having placed my order online.
Take Pure Cambogia Ultra everyday (in the morning)
My Results - I Dropped 14 kg In Just 1 Month and Lost 3 Dress Sizes. I Nearly Cried!
After one week on the diet using the product I was surprised at the dramatic results. My energy level was up, and I wasn't even hungry. A welcomed side effect of the Pure Cambogia Ultra diet is its power to curb the appetite.
I honestly felt fantastic!
Best of all, I didn't even change anything about my daily routine. On Day 7, I got on the scale and couldn't believe my eyes. I had lost 4 kg. But I still wasn't convinced, since they say you lose a lot of water weight at the beginning of any diet. I wanted to wait and see the results in the upcoming weeks. But it sure was looking up! I now weighed under 65 kg for the first time in years!
After two weeks of using the supplement, I started the week off with even more energy, and actually sleeping more soundly than before. I was no longer waking up during the night and tossing and turning because my body was actually able to relax (this is a result of getting rid of the toxins, I think). Plus I still managed to lose another 4 kg, putting me at an unbelievable 7 kg of weight loss, in just 2 weeks.
I must admit that I'd starting to believe that this diet is more than just a gimmick.
After 3 weeks, all my doubts and skepticism had absolutely vanished! I am down, 2 full dress sizes after losing another 3 kg. And I still have a ton of energy. Quite often, around the third week of other diets, you tend to run out of steam. But with the Pure Cambogia Ultra diet my energy levels didn't dip, instead they remain steady throughout the day. I no longer need that cat nap around 3pm in the afternoon! I am even noticing that my stomach is digesting food so much better. No bloating or embarrassing gas after I eat.
After the fourth week, my final results were shocking. I lost an unbelievable 14 kg since starting the Pure Cambogia Ultra diet! Actually everyone at Healthy Mum Daily is kicking themselves for not having volunteered to be the guinea pig. Using the Pure Cambogia Ultra in week 4, I lost an additional 3 kg. The results are consistent! But to be honest, I really didn't have much more than that left to lose. I am definitely going to continue taking the Pure Cambogia Ultra afterwards because it has so many antioxidants and vitamins that makes my skin look unbelievable.
I couldn't be any happier with the results.
I Lost 14 kg in 4 Weeks, No Special Diet, No Intense Exercise.

THE MEANING OF WORSHIP: THE Holy PERFUME
As we further think of the definition of worship, let us now consider:
6. The Holy Perfume (Exodus 30:34-38)
This very beautiful picture of worship is given to us as part of God’s revelation to Moses in
regard to the Tabernacle, concerning which He had said: “Make me a sanctuary, that I may
dwell among them” (Exodus 25:18). Minute instructions were given regarding the details of its
furnishings, and we find God repeatedly saying to Moses: “And look that thou make them
after their pattern, which was showed thee in the mount” (Exodus 25:9; 40:26, 30; 27:8, cp.
“And the Lord said unto Moses, Take unto thee sweet spices, stacte, and onycha, and
galbanum; these sweet spices with pure frankincense: of each shall there be a like weight:
And thou shalt make it a perfume, a confection after the art of the apothecary, tempered
together, pure and holy: And thou shalt beat some of it very small, and put of it before the
testimony in the tabernacle of the congregation, where I will meet with thee: it shall be unto
you most holy. And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to
yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the Lord.
Whosoever shall make like unto that, to smell thereto, shall even be cut off from his people”
Three things impress themselves on the mind as one reads this passage regarding the holy
(1) The Exclusive Use of It (verses 37-38)
It was reserved solely for use in the worship of God in the sanctuary. God expressly forbade its
manufacture for any other purpose. The obvious inference from this is that worship belongs to
God alone, and that He will share this honor with none. David, “the sweet Psalmist of Israel,” by
the Spirit’s inspiration wrote: “He is thy Lord, worship thou him . . . Exalt ye the Lord our
God, and worship at his footstool, for he is holy . . . O come, let us worship and bow down:
Let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker” (Psalm 45:11; 99:5; 95:6).
It will be recalled that the first demand of the law was: “Thou shalt have no other gods before
me . . . for I, the Lord thy God, am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:3-5).
There is no substitute for spiritual worship. It is the unique right, the sole property, and the
exclusive privilege of God Himself and He will not tolerate any rival. Idolatry, in its essence, is
simply that by which man seeks to displace God, or which attempts to relegate Him to a position
of secondary importance. An idol is anything that a man worships in his heart, to the exclusion of
God. It was because of the idolatrous apostasy of Israel that God:
- Set Israel aside nationally,
- Allowed them to go into captivity,
- Scattered them to the four corners of the earth. (See II Kings 17:7-18; II Chronicles 36:14-17).
We do well to pay good heed to the Divine dictum: “I am the Lord, that is my name, and my
glory will I not give to another” (Isaiah 42:8). He alone claims the title of, “Holy and
Reverend” (Psalm 111:9).
There is always the subtle danger of becoming more occupied with:
- The visible, than the invisible;
- With the temporal, than the eternal;
- With an outward and formal ceremony, than an inward and spiritual reality.
There can therefore be no substitute for spiritual worship:
- However ornate may be the ritual,
- Or gorgeous the vestments,
- Or beautiful the building,
- Or well phrased the prayers,
- Or smoothly conducted the service.
Undoubtedly all this has an appeal to the esthetic senses, and is well pleasing to the flesh, for
man is naturally religious; but it is not spiritual, and consequently cannot please God.
(2) The Ingredients that Formed it (verses 34-36)
Four ingredients, compounded in equal proportions, composed this perfume, and each part was
necessary to the whole. These ingredients were stacte, onycha, galbanum and frankincense. Each
of these four things has a typical significance which we shall not dwell on now.
Let us think of them as four elements which, when compounded together in the heart of the
believer, as he sits in the presence of God, causes the perfume of his worship to ascend to the
Father and the Son.
The first ingredient is remembrance.
It is good for the believer to use his memory to recall what he used to be by nature, and
what he now is, by God’s matchless grace.
The words of Paul to the saints at Ephesus are pertinent to this:
“Wherefore remember that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh . . . but now, in Christ
Jesus . . . are made nigh” (Ephesians 2:11, 13).
Let each Christian call to mind his black past, when he was without God, without Christ, without
life and without hope. Then let him contrast this with his present acceptance in the Beloved,
together with all the spiritual blessings that are now his present and eternal possession. Surely the
result of such remembrance will cause him to life his heart in adoration to the One who made this
so blessedly actual to his experience.
His memory should also be focused on the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Himself. The
purpose of the Lord ’s Supper, as indicated by the Lord Himself is: “This do in remembrance
In view of this, worship will become an essential feature of such a meeting, for worship is
kindled upon the fires of remembrance. As David puts it: “While I was musing, the fire
burned; then spake I with my tongue” (Psalm 39:3).
It is memory that enables us to recall the record of His matchless life, as given in the holy
The Christian should therefore concentrate upon:
- Christ’s wondrous words,
- His mighty deeds,
- His perfect and holy character,
- His absolute obedience to the father’s will,
- His infinite grace in going to the cross,
- His completed work of redemption accomplished by the sacrifice of Himself,
- His victorious resurrection,
- His glorious ascension,
- His present ministry as the great HIGH PRIEST of His people.
As he does so, the believer’s heart will warm within him, and his worship shall rise to God as a
The second ingredient is gratitude.
As memory recalls all that God is and has done, the heart responds, even as the strings of a harp
break forth into song beneath the skilful hands of a master musician. We have before noted that
the gratitude of the believer delights the heart of the Father.
Socrates, the great Grecian philosopher, declared that gratitude was the greatest of all the virtues,
and ingratitude the basest of all the vices.
A study of the great worship hymns indicate how great a part gratitude plays in their
composition. Hannah Burlington beautifully expresses it thus:
“The knowing this, that us He loves,
Hath made our cup run o’er;
Jesus, Thy name our spirit moves,
Today and evermore.”
The “Ter Stegen” hymns are amongst the finest we have. One of them, by Ernst C. Homburg,
written nearly 300 years ago, is redolent with gratitude:
“O Lord, from my heart I do thank Thee
For all Thou hast borne in my room,
Thine agony, dying unsolaced,
Alone in the darkness of doom,
That I, in the glory of Heaven,
For ever and ever might be --
A thousand, a thousand thanksgivings
I bring, blessed Saviour, to Thee!”
The third ingredient is reverence.
This is produced as the soul apprehends, in some measure at least:
- The greatness of God,
- The majesty of His Divine character,
- The glory of His unique attributes,
As displayed in His
We are living in an age characterized largely by cynicism, flippancy and lightness regarding
The modern trend is to humanize Deity and deify humanity, and that has not aided in man’s
concept of God. One has only to read the Scriptures to discover that whenever a person was
brought consciously into the presence of God, it filled him with a holy awe, humbled him in the
dust and produced a deep reverence for God.
Moses, the great leader of Israel, was taught this lesson many times. At God’s first revelation to
him at the burning bush, the voice of Jehovah said: “Draw not nigh hither; put thy shoes from
off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground” (Exodus 3:5).
At God’s revelation to him on the mount, in response to his request to see God’s glory, God gave
him a vision of Himself. At this august spectacle we read: “Moses made haste, and bowed his
head towards the earth, and worshipped” (Exodus 34:8).
Isaiah, whose magnificent concept of Deity has thrilled the hearts of the people of God for
twenty-five centuries, had to lay to heart this essential requirement. In chapter six of his
prophecy, he describes the vision he had of the glory of God which completely revolutionized his
life. This sight not only filled him with a sense of his own littleness, uncleanness and
insufficiency, but indelibly impressed upon him God’s greatness, holiness and power.
Daniel, “the man of desires,” tells us that when he saw the majestic vision of God: “There
remained no strength in me, for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption and I
retained no strength” (Daniel 10:5-11).
We could add others to this list, but these will suffice to indicate how necessary it is that godly
reverence accompany all our dealings with Divine things.
This reverence must always be present if our worship is to be acceptable to the One who is
described as “The high and lofty One, who inhabiteth eternity,” and who hath declared: “Let
all the earth fear the Lord: Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him” (Psalm
Familiarity with God can never produce contempt, for those who know Him best, love and fear
Him most. The more God impresses the soul with His Person, the greater that individual is filled
with holy awe as he stands in the presence of Him, before Whose eyes “all things are open and
naked” (Hebrews 4:13).
It should be obvious that humility of mind, sobriety of manner, and sincerity of spirit are
essential to and fitting in the presence of the One who said: “Ye shall . . . reverence my
sanctuary. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:30).
The fourth ingredient is amazement.
We have before indicated that worship has, as one of its basic requirements, the element of
wonder. He who ceases to wonder, ceases to worship.
The hymn writer has put it thus:
“I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean!
O how wonderful! O how marvelous!
And my song shall ever be,
O how wonderful! O how marvelous!
Is my Saviour’s love to me!”
One of the many titles of Deity is “Wonderful.”
Everything about the Almighty takes upon itself this character. As the believer thinks of the
wonder of His Person, His creation, His word, His Son, His love, His salvation and of each
Christian’s blessedness, he is led to exclaim with another:
“That Thou should love a wretch like me,
And be the God Thou art,
Is darkness to my intellect,
But sunshine to my heart!”
(3) The Purpose of It.
It was for God’s pleasure and for His glory. These ingredients, equally compounded together,
combined to produce a perfume which ascended to God in a fragrant stream and brought great
pleasure to Him. Likewise, when a believer sits in the presence of God, with an equal measure of
remembrance, gratitude, reverence and amazement well compounded in his heart, there will
undoubtedly rise, from the censer of his soul, a silver stream of humble, reverent, sincere and
adoring worship to his God and Father, and to the Lord Jesus Christ.
This, in turn, will delight God’s heart, for it fulfils His desire for the worship of His people. This
was expressed by His Son in these words: “The hour cometh, and now is, when the true
worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship
him” (John 4:23)
Our last consideration, under the heading of the meaning of worship, is:
7. The Root Meaning of the Word in the Old Testament
Those that understand such things have affirmed that the root meaning of the Hebrew word
carries the thought of “a dog to its master.”
As one approaches the town of Hartsdale from the city of New York, he will observe, to his left,
an animal cemetery. It is perhaps the most ornate in the world. Beneath marble monuments,
some costing hundreds of dollars, like the remains of pet animals and even birds.
Many of these tombstone’s bear sentimental epitaphs, such as: “Momsie’s only baby.”
Others are grotesque, as one over a dog which reads: “He cannot come to us, be we can go to
However, there is one epitaph that stands out from them all.
It is of a dog whose master caused to be inscribed: “To the memory of Bruce, the devoted
servant, faithful friend, warm admirer, and ardent worshipper of his master.” Then follows the
name of its owner. Does this not aptly describe what a dog is? Dogs have been described, and not
without some cause, as “man’s best friend.”
A cynic once remarked: “The more I know of human beings, the better I appreciate dogs!”
Let us use an illustration to clarify this point.
We will suppose that a man, warmly clad, ventures forth on a blustery and bitterly cold night.
The temperature is below zero, and the streets are practically deserted. Presently he sees a poor,
neglected, shivering and half starved cur, sheltering behind a telephone pole from the biting
wind. Some cruel boys have tied a can to its tail, and it has been kicked from pillar to post, until
now it is almost at the end of its tether. It will never survive a night like this on the streets.
The man pauses and looks the dog over. What a pitiable sight it is: thin, miserable, frightened,
homeless, hungry and on its last legs!
His compassion is stirred and, yielding to the impulse of the moment, he stoops down, reaches
out his hand and calls to the dog. Suspicious as first, for the dog has good reasons for distrusting
mankind, it gradually approaches, until at length it comes under his hand. The man pats it on the
head, strokes it, all the while speaking kindly words. Then, after removing the string and the can
from its tail, he lifts it up, opens his overcoat, pops it in, and carries it back to his home.
When he enters his home he says to his wife:
“I’ve found a poor starving dog on the street, that will surely die tonight, unless it finds a home.
Please put a sack in the corner of the kitchen and we’ll take care of it for at least tonight.”
Accordingly, the dog is gently placed on the sack, and a delicious bowl of hot bread and milk is
given it, followed by some scraps from the evening meal. For the first time in many days the dog
wags its tail in gratitude for this unusual kindness. The next morning it greets its benefactors
with another friendly wag of its tail, and they decide to give it a permanent home.
A month passes by, and what a wonderful change it produces in that dog! As a result of good
food and proper care, one would scarcely recognize the fine looking animal as that miserable
starving cur of four weeks ago.
One evening, as the man is sitting in an easy chair, with one hand hanging over the arm of the
chair, he suddenly feels something warm and wet on his hand. Glancing down he sees the dog
looking up at him with adoring eyes as, again and again, it licks the hand of the one to whom it
owes everything. The dog had not come into the room to beg for a bone, or even to be petted.
It wanted nothing from its owner but the privilege of sitting in his presence, so that it might look
at him with rapt, adoring eyes and, every now and then, to enjoy the privilege of licking the hand
of the one whom it loved above all others.
This is worship.
Now apply this to the believer, who once was a lost, guilty and helpless sinner, deserving
only the judgment of a holy God.
- Through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
- By faith in His substitutionary sacrifice and glorious resurrection,
- By acceptance of Him as Saviour and Lord,
He has been:
- Brought into a place of acceptance, provision and security.
Surely it is not too much for the Lord to expect that His people, saved as such an infinite cost,
will want, like that dog, to come into His presence in order to be occupied only with the One
whom, “having not seen, they love” with all their hearts. May it be yours and mine to know
something, by experience, of the real meaning and nature of worship, and thus fulfil His purpose
in our salvation.
The words of Miss C.A. Wellesley will form a fitting conclusion to this section of our study:
“Occupied with Thee, Lord Jesus, in Thy grace;
All Thy ways and thoughts about me
Deeper stories of the glories
Of Thy grace.
Taken up with Thee Lord Jesus I would be;
Finding joy and satisfaction
All in Thee;
Thou the nearest and the dearest

The Way To an Ideal Payment Gateway for You
To choose an ideal gateway can be challenging, as a result of the number of gateways that are available to choose from. These gateways tend to have similar features and work hand in a parallel manner to provide quite similar services. For you, all that is required is to choose a payment gateway that will fulfill all your needs and enable your business payments run smoothly without hitches. To help you with this, you will learn here what you will be looking for so as to receive the greatest service from the payment system that you will choose.
To get the best payment gateway, you should first consider revising the payment systems you have shortlisted as ideal for you. Learn something slight about each of them as this will help you identify the shortcomings of each. It will also create a pathway for you to get the best out of the best. This is a cumbersome process but it should ease your mind after you have read this article.
Looking at shopping carts, most online payment gateways can support the major shopping carts available. This is a tough feature as it makes your choosing difficult as people using the gateways usually use the shopping carts to shop online. This should not discourage you from choosing one payment gateway over the other. Actually it should help ease your work as you need to check for other features to find a payment gateway he is compatible to your field of work.
The most threatening thing to all online shop business entities is being scammed with a false or fraud payment system. This is why it is extremely important that you get to learn about what you are getting yourself into before you get into losses for your business. Like any other business, payment gateways are among them and thrive to make profits. They will do anything to get your attention and extract money from you.
What to look for in a payment gateway
When searching online for a good payment system you come across each one claiming that it is the best for you. This may not be true and here is what to look for:
Experience is always an important factor to look for. The more experienced you are in a business, the more quality services you provide to your clients. Confirm how long the company has been in the payment business from trusted sources. This can be from the government or online trade places.
Another equally important factor is reputation. Good things always sell by themselves, while bad things tend to keep looking for buyers. A good payment gateway has a good reputation on how it provides services to its clients.
