WHAT YOU ARE: YOUR DECISION, YOUR TOMORROW

Permit me, if you ve read something like this in this blog before to repeat it again. I like talking about how decisions affect the future. Today I would like to discuss a new perspective that I got. Its from Matt 13:1-23 (I’m a christian so I like discussing the Bible.) Feel free to give your opinions. Thanks. I’m looking forward to reading your comments.

The Bible is a complete book. Here is a parable of the sower. This farmer or sower sowed these seeds the same way; by “SCATTERING”. These seeds came from the same source, sown the same way but produced different results. Why? Relational to human beings, these seeds made different decisions and choices. One chose not to understand; the other chose not to grow deep; the other chose to lose focus; the other chose to be an overcomer, a conqueror, to be victorious, effective, have a good testimony, and productive.

Note: All of them had the same temptation but at the end of the day one chose to stand out. Oh man, you are inexcusable! As a man thinketh in his heart so he is. Your Victory or Defeat starts from within you. God is so gracious that he gave us power of WILL. What we do with it is left to us. Your decision today is your tomorrow. Whatever you have tomorrow is a by-product of your decision today. Make wise decisions and choices today for a better tomorrow.

Please feel free to comment on this blog. Would be happy to read your opinions. Thanks

Surprising Reason Why Women Live Longer

Among most animal species, humans included, females tend to live longer than males. A number of theories has been advanced over the years to explain this gender-based survival advantage. Now, new research from Japan suggests a reason that can be tested: women’s immune systems age more slowly. A research team at Tokyo Medical and Dental University analyzed blood samples from 356 healthy men and women between the ages of 20 and 90. Continue reading

Garlic: A healthy receipe for You

Garlic is more than a culinary mainstay that can add flavor to meals; it is a natural, traditional medicine that has antiviral, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. Research indicates regular consumption of garlic may:

  1. Alter how cholesterol is metabolized in the body, making it less likely to oxidize
  2. Lower blood pressure and decreasing clot formation, thus reducing the risk of stroke and heart attack
  3. Combat respiratory infections such as common colds and sore throats
  4. Reduce fungal or yeast infections

Eating raw garlic (chopped or mashed) releases the herb’s full potential as the active component, allicin, forms only on contact with air – I suggest chopping garlic and letting it sit for 10 minutes to get the full health potential that garlic offers. Garlic loses its antibiotic properties when you cook or dry it, and commercial garlic capsules do not preserve the full activity of the fresh bulb.

You can make raw garlic more palatable by chopping it fine, mixing it with food and eating it with a meal, or cut a clove into chunks and swallow them whole like pills.

Liberty Reserve founder arrested in Spain

The founder of the Liberty Reserve digital currency business has been arrested in Spain on money-laundering charges, Costa Rican authorities have said. Officials in the Central American country said in a statement that Arthur Budovsky had been detained as part of an investigation that also involved US authorities. Police raided three homes and five businesses linked to the Costa-Rica-based Liberty Reserve and seized papers and digital documents that will be turned over to US authorities, the statement said. A Russian citizen was also arrested in the case in Costa Rica on Friday and will be extradited to the US, it said.

Budovsky, a naturalised Costa Rican citizen, was detained on Friday. He had renounced his US citizenship and become a resident and citizen of Costa Rica, Costa Rican authorities said.

Liberty Reserve is a company that allows users to apply for an account by supplying a valid email address. Once a person signs up for an account, Liberty Reserve gives them a user name and an account number and they can start transferring money around the world, Costa Rican officials said. They said the company shut its offices in Costa Rica in 2011. The website, however, had continued to operate, although it was offline on Monday.

According to Costa Rica police, Budovsky was sentenced in 2007 to five years’ probation after pleading guilty in a New York court to charges he operated an illegal financial services business similar to Liberty Reserve. Liberty Reserve’s origins are obscure, but it had grown into one of the criminal underworld’s best-known electronic currency systems, used by hackers the world over to discreetly move large sums of money across borders, experts say.

Liberty Reserve, which conducted its transactions in dollars, euros and roubles, operates as an anonymous, no-questions-asked alternative to the global banking system, said Aditya Sood, a computer science doctoral candidate at Michigan State University who has studied the electronic currency. “You don’t need to provide your full details, or personal information, or things like that,” he said in a telephone interview. “There’s no way to trace an account. That’s the beauty of the system.”

Offshore currency centres, generally set up in places beyond the reach of US or European law enforcement, can serve as middlemen between criminals and the mainstream financial world, brokering transactions that turn illegally obtained money into seemingly legitimate cash.

Sood said that despite prominent disclaimers warning against money laundering, the currency centres typically have little in the way of serious oversight. “They don’t care,” he said. “They have no idea where the money is coming from or where the money is going. That’s how they designed the model.”

Liberty Reserve appears to have played an important role in laundering the proceeds from the recent theft of some $45m from two Middle Eastern banks, according to legal documents made public by US authorities earlier this month.

The complaint against one of the Dominican Republic gang members allegedly involved in the theft states that thousands of dollars’ worth of stolen cash was deposited into two Liberty Reserve accounts via currency centres based in Siberia and Singapore. The loss of Liberty Reserve has the potential to cause a “major upheaval” in the cybercrime economy, said the investigative-journalist-turned-security-researcher Brian Krebs, who added in a blogpost that hackers writing in underground forums were already buzzing with concern over frozen funds.
