Michael Oliver Confirms Broken Hand After Guardiola Shake

Guardiola Oliver broken hand
Michael Oliver has confirmed that his hand was broken during a post-match shake with Pep Guardiola at Anfield last night. The Premier League referee will undergo surgery tomorrow at The Royal London Hospital.


Guardiola Bored
“If he dies, he dies,” Guardiola told Soccer on Sunday. “There is always a danger with anaesthetics, no? Maybe that would be justice for certain crimes. Would I take a shit on Mr Oliver’s grave? Now is not the time for those decisions. He is alive at this moment, so there is no grave. If there is a grave in the future, then we will analyse the situation.”
“The handball?” added the former Barcelona manager. “I’m over it. People think because I haven’t blinked in 24 hours and slept standing up last night that I am tense. Believe me, I am so relaxed. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to find John Stones and tell him he’s shite.”

People Who Like Spicy Food Live Longer

Hot Peppers Long Life
Don’t be afraid of that habanero hot sauce you see on the grocery store shelf, with its fitting bright orange glow, like the stomach punishing lava it is. It might look like pain in a bottle — because, to be fair, it absolutely is — but it’s also the key to living a long, happy-except-for-when-you’re-on-the-toilet, life.
As it turns out, the Fountain of Youth spits straight gasoline.

This is according to 23 years’ worth of data collected from over 16,000 Americans. The study showed that those people who were regular pepper eaters (excluding ground chili peppers) had a lower death rate (21.6%) than the flavor haters who were not (33.6%).
Here’s the more science-y version of that, from the conductors of the study themselves:
Our objective was to analyze the association between consumption of hot red chili peppers and mortality, using a population-based prospective cohort from the National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES) III, a representative sample of US noninstitutionalized adults, in which participants were surveyed from 1988 to 1994. The frequency of hot red chili pepper consumption was measured in 16,179 participants at least 18 years of age. Total and cause-specific mortality were the main outcome measures. During 273,877 person-years of follow-up (median 18.9 years), a total of 4,946 deaths were observed. Total mortality for participants who consumed hot red chili peppers was 21.6% compared to 33.6% for those who did not (absolute risk reduction of 12%; relative risk of 0.64). Adjusted for demographic, lifestyle, and clinical characteristics, the hazard ratio was 0.87 (P = 0.01; 95% Confidence Interval 0.77, 0.97). Consumption of hot red chili peppers was associated with a 13% reduction in the instantaneous hazard of death.
SMH. Imagine living a life so short, and (literally and figuratively) without zest.
Though researchers weren’t exactly sure why eating peppers extended life, they believe it may have to do with capsaicin, which is the primary component of chili peppers. Capsaicin has a number of beneficial qualities for humans, including antioxidants, potential cardiovascular benefits like reduced risk of heart disease, and improved digestion. Though, based on years of eating peppers and the results of doing so, I am curious as to what these people consider “improved digestion.”
Capsaicin also fights certain types of obesity.
As an unabashed lover of eating all my meals with a heaping side of mouth pain, much of this makes sense based on my experiences.
Capsaicin as an antioxidant? Sure! Modern industrial life has filled our bodies with poison. Based on the final digestive aftermath of eating chicken wings that have been rubbed with spices and then slathered in what has the mouthfeel and appearance of molten copper, I’d say it’s pretty clear that a meal heavy with capsaicin expels toxic waste from your body. In one specific, long, painful process.
Improved digestion? Absolutely! If you can digest a plate of TGIFridays Jalapeño Poppers you can probably digest a handful of rusty nails.
As far as reduced risk of heart disease is concerned, being thin — from the metabolism boost spicy food provides, as well as from constantly fire-hosing out your insides — is probably a boon for the heart.
So there you have it. Spicy food helps you live a longer life, and our dietary recommendation is that should start eating hot chili peppers by the bushel! Find it unpleasant? So is exercising. So suck it up and start melting your insides. It’s good for you.

Marketing Trends for 2020: Here’s What Will Happen That Nobody is Talking About

The new year is right around the corner. And I know you are already prepared because you read this blog and tons of other marketing blogs, right?
But here is the thing: I also read most of the popular marketing blogs, follow all of the marketing YouTube channels, and listen to the same podcasts you do.
And I’ve noticed that very few people are talking about what’s really going to happen in 2020.
Sure, they will tell you things like voice search is going to account for over 50% of the search queries next year but all of that stuff has already been talked about.
And there are actually more interesting trends that will affect your marketing that no one is really talking about.
So, what are these trends? What’s going to happen in 2020?
Alright, here goes…

Trend #1: Companies who rely on Google Analytics will get beat by their competition

We all love Google Analytics.
Heck, I love it so much I log in at least 3 or 4 times a day. And here is the kicker: I get so much traffic that my Google Analytics only updates once a day.
I really need to break that habit but that’s for another day.
You are probably wondering, what’s wrong with Google Analytics?
There actually isn’t much wrong with it. It’s a great tool, especially considering that it’s free.
But here is the thing… marketing has been changing. New channels are being constantly introduced, such as voice search.
And transactions no longer are as simple as someone coming and buying from you and that’s it.
These days there are things like upsells, down sells, repeat purchases, and even checkout bumps. On top of that, there are so many different ways you can generate revenue for your online business, such as partnerships, affiliate marketing, and even webinars.
This has caused companies to start using analytics solutions that tie into their database better, such as Amplitude.  Or better yet, you are seeing a big push into business intelligence.
A central place where you can tie in all of your data and make better-informed decisions so you can optimize for your lifetime value instead of your short-term income.
In 2020, you will see more companies adopting business intelligence solutions… from paid ones to free ones like Google Data Studio.

If you haven’t checked out Data Studio, you’ll want to start now because it is easy to pass in all of your business and marketing data into one place. For example, you can pass in more granular data from your Facebook ad campaigns into Data Studio while that would be a bit difficult to do with Google Analytics.

Trend #2: Companies will optimize for voice search, but not for revenue

According to ComScore, over 50% of the searches in 2020 will be from voice search. But that’s not really a new trend… everyone has been talking about that for years.
So, what’s the big deal?
Optimizing for voice search is a great way to get your brand out more, but how is that going to convert into sales?
I haven’t seen too many solutions so far when it comes to capitalizing on your voice search traffic, but so far there is Jetson.ai.
If you aren’t familiar with Jetson.ai, it makes it so people can buy from your site using voice search. It doesn’t matter if it is Alexa or Google Home, they work with most of the popular devices.
What’s cool about Jetson.ai is that it can learn from each customer and customize the interactions.
For example, if I keep ordering the same toothpaste from a specific store using voice search, Jetson.ai keeps track of that so you can easily keep ordering the same product over and over again with little to no friction.
Heck, it’s easier than logging into your computer or pulling out your phone to make a purchase.

Trend #3: Your lists won’t convert as well, so you’ll have to look for alternative communication channels

Email, it’s something we all use in the corporate world.
But here is something interesting when it comes to marketing emails… I’m in a group with a bit over 109 email marketers across different industries in different parts of the world.
And can you guess what we are all noticing?
Our open rates are staying roughly the same and that’s largely because we all know how to clean and optimizing for deliverability.
But our click rates are going down.
So far as a group we have seen our click rates drop by 9.4% in 2019.
That’s crazy considering as a group we have over 146 million email addresses.
Now does this mean email is dead?
Of course not!!!
Email is here to stay and will be here for a very long time.
But what companies will have to do in 2020 is to leverage more communication channels.
Chatbots will take off drastically. Not necessarily the Intercom’s or Drift’s of the world but more so the solutions like ManyChat and MobileMonkey.
ManyChat and MobileMonkey leverage Facebook Messenger and as they connect it with Instagram and WhatsApp it will get even more popular.
In addition to chatbots, you’ll see more people leveraging tools that allow push notifications like Subscribers.
It’s so powerful, here is the impact I’ve been able to generate from push notifications so far using Subscribers.

You can wait till next year to lever chatbots and push notifications, but I’d recommend you start sooner than later.

Trend #4: Moats will almost be non-existent, other than brands

You’ve probably heard the word “moat” before. If you haven’t, just think about water around a castle.

Back in the day, they had water all around the castle and they used a drawbridge to get in and out of the castle, so it would protect them from invaders.
With your business, you may have a moat. It could be a feature, your cost structure, a technological advantage, or even a marketing advantage.
Over the years, moats in the online world have slowly been disappearing.
It’s easy for anyone to copy these days. So, what’s separating you from your competition?
Something could work right now, but it won’t last forever…
But do you know what will still be a strong moat in 2020 and even a stronger one in the future?
It’s branding.
People buy Jordan shoes because they love Michael Jordan. His brand is stronger than ever even though he hasn’t played in the NBA for roughly 16 years.
His shoes are so popular, it’s helped him boost his net worth to over a billion dollars. Plus owning a basketball team doesn’t hurt either.
But what’s interesting is he’s made more money after retirement than he did as a basketball player.
And it’s not just Jordan who built a strong brand… so have the Kardashians.
Kylie launched a billion-dollar company according to Forbes and it was all because of her personal brand. Her cosmetic company isn’t doing anything revolutionary. She just has a strong brand… and good for her for monetizing her brand.
The same goes for companies like Nike, Ferrari, Tesla, American Express… and the list goes on and on.
It’s why companies are spending over 10 billion dollars a year on influencer marketing.

Just look at my agency NP Digital. It’s literally one of the fastest-growing ad agencies out there. And when I look at all of my competitors’ numbers, we are growing at a much faster pace because of my brand.
Yes, we have a great team, but again, that really isn’t a moat as a lot of agencies have great teams. It’s my brand that gave us a really fast kick start and continues to hopefully push us up.
You’ll want to build a brand in 2020. Whether it is personal or corporate, it’s the best moat you can build in marketing. Plus, it will help you with Google’s EAT.

Trend #5: Marketing will become a more even playing field, you’ll have no choice but to use automation

When I first started off as an entrepreneur, I turned to SEO because I couldn’t afford the big ad budgets as my competitors.
Heck, I couldn’t even afford to run any paid ads.
Over the years, the playing field has become more level.
There are credit card companies like Brex that make it easier for startups to get approved for larger limits and you may not have to pay them back right away.
There are financing companies that will give you cash to spend on marketing, so non-venture funded companies can more easily compete.
There are even companies like Lighter Capital that will give you loans without all of the headaches based on your existing revenue.
And to top it off, software solutions are now starting to integrate AI to give better recommendations. From Clickflow and RankScience to Distilled ODN… everyone is trying to use AI to make SEO and other forms of marketing.
Heck, BrightEdge can even automate your SEO (or at least a large portion of it). According to them, their automated SEO solution increases page views per visit by 60% as well as provides 21% more keywords on page one​.
Keep in mind their clients are really big (their software starts in the thousands of dollars per month) so they would probably see better results than most companies, but still, you will start seeing many more software companies leverage AI.
Even with Ubersuggest, I’m working on creating AI that does the SEO for you so you no longer have to spend endless hours while, at the same time, saving you thousands of dollars.
In other words, the marketing playing field is getting more even. And if you want to do well, you are going to have to leverage AI and automation.
If everyone else is using it and you aren’t, you are going to get crushed because it will make changes faster and more accurately than a human. Again, it’s the only option you’ll have if you want to continually compete.
But don’t worry, there will be affordable/free solutions that exist, it’s just a matter of time.
If everyone is leveraging the same AI marketing technology, how can you beat your competitors?
Well, it will come down to everything else… price, customer service, upselling, operations, sales… All of the small stuff is what’s going to help you win.

Trend #6: There will be no more silver bullets, we will all have to optimize for marginal gains

A lot of businesses were built off of one marketing channel.
Dropbox grew through referral marketing. Invite more friends, get more free space.

Facebook was built off your email address book. Facebook used to tap into it and invite all of your contacts to use Facebook on your behalf.

Companies like Quora and Yelp were built off of SEO. All of those rankings really help drive their businesses.
But you no longer can build a business through just one marketing channel. Good channels now get saturated extremely fast.
Even if they work and cause explosive growth, it will only last for a short while before your competitors jump on board and make it harder.
Marketing is now heading in the direction of being about “marginal gains.”
There’s a British cycling coach named Dave Brailsford. His belief was that if you improved every area related to cycling by just 1 percent, then those small gains would add up to remarkable improvement.
And he’s right, that’s how you win a race.
The same will be with your marketing. There will be a big shift from people focusing on one channel and trying to find the “Holy Grail of marketing” to working on slightly improving each area of your marketing.
From split testing your title tags to get a few ranking improvements to adding checkout bumps to your order page so you can spend a little bit more on your paid ads to using Google Data Studio so you can better optimize for your lifetime value…
It’s all about the little things. That’s what is going to add up to winning.
That’s what you’ll have to shift your mindset to in order to win in 2020 and beyond.

Trend #7: Personalization is the new marketing

The problem with marketing as it exists today is that 95% of your visitors will never convert into a customer. And that’s if you are lucky.
Chances are you are more likely looking at 97% plus of your visitors never converting.
The big reason isn’t that your marketing sucks or that all of those visitors are junk and unqualified.
It’s that your message doesn’t fit every single one of your visitors.
But through personalization, you can convert more of your visitors into customers.
A basic example of this is Amazon. When you go to Amazon, they know your patterns and what you typically buy so they show you what they think you want to see in order to boost their conversions.
And it works! When I log into Amazon I see tons of household supplies because that is what I buy the most often. I never buy dog food (which is smart because I don’t have a dog) so I’ll never see ads for dog food.

Businesses are also trying to personalize each and every single experience both online and offline.
Companies like Amperity are trying to create a customer relationship engine so you can better serve each of your customers, whether it is online or offline.
Marketing is going to become a game of personalization. With ad costs and even general marketing costs rising, you have no choice but to figure out how to convert the 97% of your traffic that just never comes back.
You’ll see a big push for this in 2020.


I know a lot of the stuff I mentioned above isn’t talked about a lot and they aren’t popular marketing topics that everyone wants to hear… but it is the future.
These are trends that will come true, some already are, and you have to adapt for them.
Here’s the beautiful part, though. You just read this, and now have a chance to act on the information before your competition. So, make sure you go and do so.
I want to see you not only succeed but I want you to beat your competition. And I believe you can, whether you are a big company, or just starting off with very little to no money.
So, what do you think of the trends above? Do you see any marketing trends that will come true in 2020 that few people talk about?

Adopted 6 YO ‘Orphan’ Who Allegedly Tried To Kill Parents Moves In With A New Family

Last week, the story of a 6-year-old adopted girl who allegedly was an adult “sociopath” wanting to kill the parents spread like wildfire on the internet. People around the world were creeped out by the ‘Orphan’ like details of the story. In case you didn’t know, here are a few details:
Reserve image source

A married couple, Kristine and Michael Barnett, had adopted 6-year-old Natalia Grace in 2009. Months after the adoption, the couple claimed they started noticing clues of how Natalia is much older than she claimed to be – like how she had full pubic hair and had her periods. After running a few tests on the child to find out her actual age, Natalia allegedly started to threaten the family, wanting to kill them. Later when she was sent for psychiatric treatment, the couple claimed Natalia admitted to one of the therapists that she was 22-years-old.

The above details were given by the couple, now divorced, after they faced charged of abandoning a “dependent” in an empty house back in 2013. However, the media dug deep and new details have surfaced online.
Reserve image source

According to a report by Mirror UK, Natalia has a new family now. She has been adopted by Antwon Mans, a 36-year-old pastor, his wife Cynthia. A friend of the family said that they are “Good Samaritans who came across an abandoned child in need of help” and that there is “nothing crazy going on”.

Meanwhile, the Barnetts were called in for a court session recently where they faced charges of abandoning Natalia back in 2013 and flying off to Canada. An affidavit submitted by the state police mentions how Natalia had to live in the empty apartment for 3 years on her own with the help of doctors.
Reserve image source

To this accusation, the Barnetts revealed additional shocking details of Natalia’s behavior towards them. She said that Natalia threatened to stab her and her then-husband in their sleep, she would draw pictures and write on them that she would kill the family, roll them in blankets and throw them in the back yard.

“I saw her putting chemicals, bleach, Windex something like that, in my coffee and I asked her, what are you doing? She said, ‘I am trying to poison you’,” said Kristine.

The mother claimed that Natalia was diagnosed with a bone disorder which led her to grow just 3-feet tall and that she was also diagnosed as both a psychopath and sociopath. Her mental illness allegedly led her to jump off moving cars and smear blood on mirrors.

But the court ruled out their justifications saying that the couple abandoned a “dependent”, which by definition means a child or a mentally/physically disabled individual of any age, revealed The Sun. Hence, they faced respective charges. The court, however, has agreed to the fact that Kristine is, in fact, an adult, keeping in account her previous medical tests and other pieces of evidence.

The charges can sentence them to jail for a collective term of five-and-a-half years. If what the Barnetts are saying is, in fact, true, then it’s really unfortunate for them to serve jail term. Don’t you think?

Couple Adopts 6 YO Kid, Later Claims That She’s A 22 YO Sociopath & Wants To Kill Them

I remember being completely freaked out after watching the 2009 psychological horror film ‘Orphan’. To even think that something very, very similar happened in real-life is daunting!

According to a shocking story by Mail Online, Kristine and Michael Barnett had adopted 6-year-old Ukrainian-born Natalia Grace back in 2009 and in 2013, the couple faced charges of abandoning and dumping her at an apartment and then flying off to Canada.

Reserve image source

When faced with police charges, the couple in their defence claimed that Natalia wasn’t a “kid” and that she was actually a 22-year-old woman with dwarfism, posing to be a child. She alleged that the “kid” had been threatening the family and trying to kill them.

After adopting Natalia back in 2009, they said they noticed on their way back home that the child couldn’t walk. The adoption paperwork allegedly didn’t state that she couldn’t walk. However, being the loving parents that they were, they made up their mind to care for Natalia even with her disability.

Reserve image source
The Barnett couple had 3 other sons. They shared that one day, when the entire family was at the beach and the boys were playing near the waves, Natalia insisted her father to take her to play with them, because you know, she couldn’t walk.
“Michael and myself were physically exhausted so we asked her to wait just a few minutes. With that she just got up and ran into the ocean. I remember looking at Mike and thinking, what’s going on? She couldn’t walk a second ago and now she just got up and ran,” said Kristine. That’s the first time the couple was suspicious.

Another incident which added to Kristine’s suspicion was when she was bathing Natalia. She allegedly noticed that the child had full pubic hair, which was unusual for a 6-year-old. Later, Kristine claims she discovered Natalia’s blood-stained clothes in the trash, inferring that Natalia was on her periods.

Reserve image source
The couple claimed there were further clues leading to the conclusion that Natalia must have been much older than she claimed – she allegedly shunned dolls, prefered the company of older women, dispised children, and had the perfect vocabulary.

According to The Sun, things got worse when the Barnetts decided on getting some tests done on her. When her bone-density test results came, it declared that Natalia was “14 years or older”. The couple claims that was when the “child” started attacking the family. Her adoptive parents claimed she tried pushing the mother to an electric fence, tried poisoning her, left blood-smeared death threats on the mirror, and so on.

Reserve image source

After the couple sought psychiatric treatment for Natalia in 2012, she allegedly admitted to one of her therapists that she was 22 years old. Further evidence collected by the couple apparently convinced them that there were discrepancies in Natalia’s real age, reports Business Insider.

If this doesn’t scare the bejesus out of you, I don’t know what will.
Further updates reveal Natalia has now moved in with her new family. Read the updated story here.

4 خطوات لتبعدوا عنكم الشيطان

Jeffrey Bruno ©

هذه السبل لن تمنع الشيطان من ممارسة السلطة عليكم فحسب، بل ستضعكم على طريق القداسة

روما / أليتيا (aleteia.org/ar) – هذه السبل لن تمنع الشيطان من ممارسة السلطة عليكم فحسب، بل ستضعكم على طريق القداسة
بعد خضوع شخص ما لعملية طرد الأرواح الشريرة منه، كيف يمنع الشيطان من العودة إليه؟ نقرأ في الأناجيل قصة تصف كيف أُخرجت روح نجسة من إنسان، فزارته بعدها مجموعة من الشياطين وسعت إلى الدخول فيه بطريقة أقوى (م 12: 43، 45). هنا، لا بد من التوضيح بأن طقس إخراج الأرواح النجسة يطرد الشياطين من شخص ما، لكنه لا يمنعهم من العودة.
لذلك، في سبيل ضمان عدم رجوع الشيطان، ينصح المقسمون النجسة بأربعة أساليب تسمح بأن تعيش روح الإنسان في سلام وبين يدي الله:
  1. اللجوء بانتظام إلى سرّي الاعتراف والافخارستيا
الطريقة الأكثر شيوعاً التي يتمكن الشرير من خلالها من الدخول إلى حياة شخص ما هي حالة الخطيئة المميتة. كلما انفصلنا عن الله عبر الخطيئة، ازدادت قابلية تعرضنا لهجوم الشرير. وحتى الخطايا العرضية تقدر أن تقلص علاقتنا بالله وتعرضنا لتقدّم العدو.
هكذا، يعتبر الاعتراف بالخطايا السبيل الأساسي الذي نملكه لنضع حدا لحياة الخطيئة ونسلك طريقاً جديدة. وليس من قبيل المصادفة أن يكون الشرير قد سعى بلا كلل لإخافة القديس جان ماري فياني من الاستماع إلى اعترافات الخطأة المزمنين. كان فياني يعلم بقدوم خاطئ كبير إلى البلدة عندما كان الشيطان يضايقه قبل ليلة. للاعتراف قوة ونعمة كبيرتان جداً بحيث أن الشرير يهرب من الشخص الذي يلجأ بانتظام إلى ذلك السر.
بالإضافة إلى الاعتراف، يتمتع سر الافخارستيا المقدس بقوّة أكبر على إبعاد تأثير الشيطان. فإن سر الافخارستيا المقدس هو الحضور الفعلي ليسوع المسيح. والشياطين لا تتمتع بأي قدرة على الإطلاق أمام الله بنفسه، بخاصة عندما يتلقى الإنسان الافخارستيا في حالة نعمة بعد الاعتراف، فلا يكون للشيطان أي مكان يذهب إليه سوى ذلك الذي جاء منه. وهذا ما أكده القديس توما الأكويني في خلاصته اللاهوتية عندما كتب: “سر الافخارستيا يصدّ كل هجمات الشياطين. لذا، قال يوحنا فم الذهب: “مثل الأسود التي تلهث النار، نبتعد عن تلك المائدة ونُرهِب الشيطان””.
  1. حياة الصلاة الثابتة
ينبغي على الشخص الذي يلجأ دوماً إلى سري الاعتراف والافخارستيا أن يتقيد بحياة صلاة يومية “ثابتة”. فالثبات في الصلاة يضع الشخص يومياً في حال نعمة وفي علاقة مع الله. ويجب على من يتحدث بانتظام مع الله ألا يخاف أبداً من الشيطان. ويقترح طاردو الأرواح دائماً على الممسوسين التقيد بعادات روحية قوية منها قراءة الكتاب المقدس بشكل دائم وصلاة المسبحة وتلاوة صلوات خاصة أخرى. هكذا، يعود برنامج الصلاة اليومي بفوائد كثيرة على الإنسان ويُبعد عنه الشياطين.
  1. الصوم
هذه النصيحة تأتي مباشرة من الأناجيل، عندما قال يسوع لتلاميذه: “هذا الجنس لا يُطرَد إلا بالصلاة والصوم” (مر 9، 29). ينبغي على كل واحد منا أن يميز نوع الصوم الذي نُدعى إلى ممارسته. بالنسبة لنا نحن الذين نعيش في العالم وتترتب علينا مسؤوليات كثيرة (كالاهتمام بعائلاتنا)، لا يمكننا الصوم كثيراً وإهمال دعوتنا. في الوقت عينه، إذا كنا نريد صد الشياطين، ينبغي علينا أن نتحدى أنفسنا ونصوم عن أشياء تتخطى الامتناع عن تناول الشوكولا في زمن الصوم الكبير.
  1. الرموز المقدسة
لا يستخدم المقسمون لوحدهم الرموز المقدسة (طقس طرد الأرواح النجسة)، بل ينصحون الممسوسين باستخدامها أيضاً على الدوام. فهي سلاح قدير في النضال اليومي لمنع الشرير من العودة. ويقترح طاردو الأرواح النجسة ألا تُترك الرموز المقدسة كالملح والماء المباركين في المنزل فقط، بل أن تُرافق الشخص أينما ذهب. وللبطرشيل البني مثلاً سلطة كبيرة على الشياطين. فقد أخبر المكرم فرنسيس آيبس أن بطرشيله وقع في أحد الأيام. وإذ لبس غيرها، صرخ الشيطان قائلاً له: “اخلع الرداء الذي ينتزع منا العديد من الأرواح!”.
إذا كنتم تريدون صدّ القوى الشريرة، خذوا هذه الطرق الأربع على محمل الجد. فهي لن تمنع الشيطان من ممارسة السلطة عليكم فحسب، بل ستضعكم على طريق القداسة.

يا أيها الذين انتقدتم رفع تمثال جديد ليسوع في لبنان…اقرأوا جيداً

لبنان/ أليتيا (aleteia.org/ar) تمثال “يسوع الرحمة الإلهية” يرتفع على إحدى قمم كسروان، خطوة رائعة تضع لبنان من جديد تحت تكريس يسوع ورحمته في بلد بحاجة إلى معجزة إلهية قد تنقذه من الانسياق الأعمى وراء بعض الذين يعملون على خراب البلد.
على أرض القدّيسين شق تمثال يسوع الرحمة الالهية طريقه من منطقة بعبدات اللبنانية عابرًا المسلك الشرقي لانطلياس متجهًا الى دير الكريم في غوسطا وهو الدير المعروف بدير مار يوحنا مارون التابع لجمعية المرسلين اللبنانيين.
هذا وقد أزيح الستار عن التمثال الذي أطلق عليه اسم “يسوع الرحمة الإلهية” عقب الاحتفال بالقداس الإلهي.
التمثال الذي بلغ ارتفاعه دون القاعدة 12 متر ويصل مع القاعدة الى ٢١ مترا وضع على تلة تطل على خليج جونية أُطلق عليها اسم “جبل الرحمة” قرب دير المخلص الكريم في منطقة بطحا.
وقد استغرقت عملية نحت القسم العلوي من تمثال قلب يسوع الرحمة الإلهية مدة 6 أشهر بحيث تم نحته بطريقة تجعل التمثال بمعزل عن تأثير العوامل الطبيعي ولذلك تم نحته بطريقة مقولبة بالحديد ليكون التمثال متينا.
فكرة التمثال بدأت مع الأب جان بو خليفة في دير “الكريم” في غوسطا الذي قال لإحدى المواقع الإلكترونية اللبنانية:” منذ سنتين راودتني فكرة وضع تمثال للسيدة العذراء تحت إسم أم المنسيين تيمناً باسم المؤسسة التي تُعنى بشؤون الفقراء وكيف أن مريم العذراء حاضرة إلى جانب كل فقير وبعد الإجتماع بأعضاء المؤسسة قالوا إنه يوجد تمثال للسيدة العذراء في كسروان أي سيدة حريصا فلماذا لا يتم وضع تمثال الرحمة الإلهية المتمثل بالسيد المسيح إضافة إلى أن جمعية الرحمة الإلهية جديدة وهي في طور الانتشار.”
الأب بو خليفة تواصل مع النحات اللبناني طوني عواد للبدء بتنفيذ أعمال التمثال الذي استغرق سنة ونصف السنة.
رفع هذا التمثال لاقى اعتراضات فكتب بعض المسيحيين على فايسبوك “إنو شو نحنا وثن”، أو “صار لبنان كلو تماثيل”!!! إلى هؤلاء نقول، انزلوا صور السياسيين وأوقفوا تأليههم قبل أن تنتقدوا وضع تماثيل ليسوع والعذراء وشربل في اراضينا وهي خطوات أفضل بكثير من بيع هذه الأراضي للغرباء.

العثور على إنجيل محفور على قطعة حديدية في أنقاض برجي التجارة العالمية


في ذكرى ١١ سبتمبر يبقى صوت الإنجيل أقوى من صوات الإرهاب

قصةٌ مرّ عليها الزمن لكنها عادت الى الواجهة بمناسبة ذكرى أحداث الحادي عشر من سبتمبر ٢٠٠١.
ففي ٣٠ مارس ٢٠٠٢، وفي حين كانت الجهود مستمرة لرفع الأنقاض، وجد أحد العمال أمرا لم يكن في الواقع بالحسبان: إنجيل محفور في قطعة حديديّة مفتوح على صفحة عظة الجبل. فالتقط لما اكتشفه الصور.
 وصلت الصور الى المصور جويل مييروويتز الذي تأثر بالصفحة المفتوحة: “سمعتم انه قيل، العين بالعين والسن بالسن وأما أنا فأقول لكم: لا تقاوموا الشر بل من لطمك على خدك الأيمن فحوّل له الآخر أيضاً.”
وقدم  مييروويتز الصور والإنجيل المحفور في الحديد الى المتحف الذي أنشئ تخليداً لذكرى ١١ سبتمبر وهي لا تزال هناك.

اشتعلت منصات التواصل الاجتماعية خلال الساعات القليلة الماضية بثورة غضب عارمة جراء تداول فيديو لأب يضرب طفلته الصغيرة ذي الأشهر القليلة بعنف شديد أمام الكاميرا.

وأظهرت اللقطات المصورة التي تم تداولها على نطاق واسع الأب وهو يضرب طفلة بوحشية شديدة وكأنه أحد أعدائه، ما جعل رواد مواقع التواصل الاجتماعي يصفونه بالـ«الحيوان»، ويطالبون بمحاكمته.

وفي دقائق قليلة تصدر هاشتاج «معذب طفلة» منصة «تويتر»، للتنديد بفعل الأب، بل انبرى البعض في البحث عن معلومات تفيد في الوصول لهذا الأب ومعاقبته على جرمه في حق طفلة.

ومن هذه المعلومات المتداولة، أن الرجل اسمه يوسف القططي، فلسطيني الجنسية ويقيم في الرياض.

من جانبها فقد أمرت النيابة العامة⁩ في السعودية الجهة المختصة بمباشرة إجراءات البحث والتحري للتعرف على هوية الشخص الذي يعذب طفلة رضيعة لإجبارها على الوقوف.

وفي سياق متصل، فقد أعلنت مديرية الأمن العام في الأردن أن التحقيقات حول مقطع فيديو جرى تداوله يظهر شخصا يضرب طفلة صغيرة قادت إلى أن الحادثة وقعت في إحدى دول الجوار ومن قبل شخص يحمل جنسية عربية.

كما أكدت هيئة حقوق الإنسان في السعودية رصد ما تم تداوله في وسائل التواصل الاجتماعي بخصوص معذب طفله وتتابع الهيئة مع الجهات المختصة للتأكد من مكان الواقعة واتخاذ الإجراءات النظامية التي تضمنتها الأنظمة وفي مقدمتها نظام حماية الطفل ونظام الحماية من الإيذاء.

Baby Born Alive at 23 Weeks Was Gasping for Air. Abortion Clinic Put Baby in a Bag, Threw Her in the Trash

Opinion   Congressman Chris Smith   Sep 13, 2019   |   11:09AM    Washington, DC 

This week, at a hearing on Capitol Hill on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, Congressman Chris Smith, chair of the Pro-Life Caucus, issued the following statement:
In a Florida abortion clinic, Sycloria Williams delivered a live baby girl at 23 weeks.
The clinic owner took the baby who was gasping for air, cut her umbilical cord, threw her into a biohazard bag and put the bag in the trash.
Heartbroken, Sycloria later had a funeral for her baby girl who she named Shanice.
In Sycloria’s home state of Florida, in just one year—2017—eleven babies were born alive during abortions.
Shockingly only six states—Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Texas—currently require the reporting of children born alive who survive abortion.
Why the coverup?
Dr. Willard Cates, MD, former head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Abortion Surveillance Unit, said: “(Live births) are little known because organized medicine, from fear of public clamor and legal action, treats them more as an embarrassment to be hushed up than a problem to be solved. It’s like turning yourself in to the IRS for an audit…what is there to gain? The tendency is not to report because there are only negative incentives.”
Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell—one of the few who got caught—was convicted of murder for killing children who were born alive after attempted abortions. The Grand Jury report described it this way:
Follow LifeNews.com on Instagram for pro-life pictures and videos.
“Gosnell had a simple solution for the unwanted babies he delivered: he killed them. He didn’t call it that. He called it ‘ensuring fetal demise’. The way he ensured fetal demise was by sticking scissors into the back of the baby’s neck and cutting the spinal cord. He called that ‘snipping’.”
The Gosnell Grand Jury recommended that: “There should be no statute of limitations for infanticide. We recommend that the legislature amend the statute of limitations so that infanticide is treated as what it is – homicide. It is important to extend the statute of limitations not only because of the seriousness of the offense, but also because the crime is hard to discover. Gosnell, we are convinced, committed hundreds of acts of infanticide. He got away with them for decades because they all took place inside his clinic. We are disappointed that we can charge him for only the babies he let die in the past two years. Homicide has no statute of limitations, and neither should infanticide.”
In 2012, two bioethicists, Dr. Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, published an outrageous paper in the Journal of Medical Ethics justifying the deliberate, premeditated murder of newborn babies during the first hours, days, and even weeks after birth.
The ethicists said: “When circumstances occur after birth that would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.”
In other words, the same conditions that would justify the killing of a baby in utero justifies the killing of that baby even when she is born.
Giubilini and Minerva further justified after-birth abortion by stating that new-born infants, like their slightly younger sisters and brothers in the womb, “cannot have formed any aim that she is prevented from accomplishing”. In other words, no discernable plans, dreams, or “aims” for the future equals no life at all.
Shockingly, some want to legalize and legitimize this assault on children—the murder of born alive babies.
New York Governor Cuomo signed into law a bill to allow abortion until birth and even removes penalties for infanticide of any child who survives. Illinois also repealed its born alive protections. Fourteen other states have no protections for abortion survivors in place.
Not only have 61 million unborn babies been killed since 1973 by either dismemberment—a procedure where a child is decapitated and torn apart, arms, legs, and torso—or by chemical poisoning. The loss of children’s lives in America is staggering—a death toll that equates with the entire population of Italy.
Advocates of abortion are now aggressively legislating to extend the violence after birth.
The Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act seeks to end or at least mitigate this egregious child abuse by requiring that a health care provider must “exercise the same degree of professional skill, care and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to any other child born alive at the same gestational age or be fined and/or face up to five years in prison.”
The bill makes clear that no mother of a child born alive can ever be prosecuted.
And it empowers the woman upon whom the abortion is performed to obtain appropriate relief in a civil action.
The House needs to vote now and approve this humane, pro-child, human rights legislation.
