How to change the course of human history (at least, the part that’s already happened)

 David Greaba

David Wengrow

The story we have been telling ourselves about our origins is wrong, and perpetuates the idea of inevitable social inequality. David Graeber and David Wengrow ask why the myth of ‘agricultural revolution’ remains so persistent, and argue that there is a whole lot more we can learn from our ancestors.

Pence: N Korea could end up like Libya if Kim does not cooperate

US Vice President Mike Pence has warned that North Korea could end up like Libya if Kim Jong-un does not cooperate with the United Sates and give up nuclear weapons.

“You know, there was some talk of the Libyan model last week. And as the president made clear, this will only end like the Libyan model ended if Kim Jong-un doesn’t make a deal,” Pence said on Monday in an interview with Fox News.

“It would be a great mistake for Kim Kim Jong-un to think he could play Donald Trump,” Pence said, adding that Trump would walk away from the talks if they prove unproductive.

“But we hope for better. We really hope that Kim Kim Jong-un will seize the opportunity to dismantle his nuclear weapons program, and do so by peaceable means,” he said.

On Sunday, US National Security Adviser John Bolton said that the United States was looking at using the so-called “Libya model” as a way of forcing Pyongyang to surrender its nuclear weapons.

The model Bolton was referring to was Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi’s agreement in December 2003 to surrender Libya’s nuclear weapons program, which included allowing uranium centrifuges to be shipped out to the US.

But President Donald Trump appeared to interpret the “Libyan model” to mean the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya in support of an uprising, which ultimately led to Gaddafi’s murder at the hands of Western-backed rebels in Tripoli.

Last week, Trump threatened Kim with the same fate as Gaddafi if Pyongyang does not abandon its nuclear weapons program.

He issued the threat at the White House when he was asked about the suggestion by Bolton that the “Libyan model” be a template for dealing with North Korea at a summit between Trump and Kim planned for June 12 in Singapore.

“The model, if you look at that model with Gaddafi, that was a total decimation. We went in there to beat him. Now that model would take place if we don’t make a deal, most likely. But if we make a deal, I think Kim Jong-un is going to be very, very happy,” Trump said.

North Korea has threatened to cancel the summit between its leader and Trump, blaming US demands for “unilateral nuclear abandonment.”

Washington will “have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-US summit in light of this provocative military ruckus,” said the North’s official news agency KCNA.

7 Things You Should Stop Expecting from Others

“I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations
and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.”
―Bruce Lee

The biggest disappointments in our lives are often the result of misplaced expectations.  This is especially true when it comes to our relationships and interactions with others.

Tempering your expectations of other people will greatly reduce unnecessary frustration and suffering, in both your life and theirs, and help you refocus on the things that truly matter.

Which means it’s time to…

1.  Stop expecting them to agree with you.

You deserve to be happy.  You deserve to live a life you are excited about.  Don’t let the opinions of others make you forget that.  You are not in this world to live up to the expectations of others, nor should you feel that others are here to live up to yours.  In fact, the more you approve of your own decisions in life, the less approval you need from everyone else.

You have to dare to be yourself, and follow you own intuition, however frightening or strange that may feel or prove to be.  Don’t compare yourself to others.  Don’t get discouraged by their progress or success.  Follow your own path and stay true to your own purpose.  Success is ultimately about spending your life happily in your own way.

2.  Stop expecting them to respect you more than you respect yourself.

True strength is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles.  It’s about having faith and trust in who you are, and a willingness to act upon it.  Decide this minute to never again beg anyone for the love, respect, and attention that you should be showing yourself.

Today, look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I love you, and from now on I’m going to act like it.”  It’s important to be nice to others, but it’s even more important to be nice to yourself.  When you practice self-love and self-respect, you give yourself the opportunity to be happy.  When you are happy, you become a better friend, a better family member, and a better YOU.  (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the “Self-Love” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)

3.  Stop expecting (and needing) them to like you.

You might feel unwanted and unworthy to one person, but you are priceless to another.  Don’t ever forget your worth.  Spend time with those who value you.  No matter how good you are to people, there will always be one negative person who criticizes you.  Smile, ignore them, and carry on.

In this crazy world that’s trying to make you like everyone else, the toughest battle you’ll ever have to fight is the battle to be yourself.  And as you’re fighting back, not everyone will like you.  Sometimes people will call you names because you’re “different.”  But that’s perfectly OK.  The things that make you different are the things that make YOU, and the right people will love you for it.

4.  Stop expecting them to fit your idea of who they are.

Loving and respecting others means allowing them to be themselves.  When you stop expecting people to be a certain way, you can begin to appreciate THEM.

Pay close attention, and respect people for who they are and not for who you want them to be.  We don’t know most people half as well as we believe we do; and truly knowing someone is a big part of what makes them wonderful.  Every human being is remarkable and beautiful; it just takes a patient set of eyes to see it.  The more you get to know someone, the more you will be able to look beyond their appearance and see the beauty of who they truly are.

5.  Stop expecting them to know what you’re thinking.

People can’t read minds.  They will never know how you feel unless you tell them.  Your boss?  Yeah, he doesn’t know you’re hoping for a promotion because you haven’t told him yet.  That cute guy you haven’t talked to because you’re too shy?  Yeah, you guessed it, he hasn’t given you the time of day simply because you haven’t given him the time of day either.

In life, you have to communicate with others regularly and effectively.  And often, you have to open your vocal cords and speak the first words.  You have to tell people what you’re thinking.  It’s as simple as that.

6.  Stop expecting them to suddenly change.

If there’s a specific behavior someone you care about has that you’re hoping disappears over time, it probably won’t.  If you really need them to change something, be honest and put all the cards on the table so this person knows how you feel and what you need them to do.

For the most part though, you can’t change people and you shouldn’t try.  Either you accept who they are or you choose to live without them.  It’s might sound harsh, but it’s not.  When you try to change people, they often remain the same, but when you don’t try to change them – when you support them and allow them the freedom to be as they are – they gradually change in the most beautiful way.  Because what really changes is the way you see them.

7.  Stop expecting them to be “OK.”

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle, just like you.  Every smile or sign of strength hides an inner struggle every bit as complex and extraordinary as your own.

Remember that embracing your light doesn’t mean ignoring your dark.  We are measured by our ability to overcome adversities and insecurities, not avoid them.  Supporting, sharing and making contributions to other people is one of life’s greatest rewards.  This happens naturally if we allow it, because we all share very similar dreams, needs and struggles.  Once we accept this, the world then is a place where we can look someone else in the eye and say, “I’m lost and struggling at the moment,” and they can nod and say, “Me too,” and that’s OK.  Because not being “OK” all the time, is perfectly OK.

Afterthoughts

People rarely behave exactly the way you want them to.  Hope for the best, but expect less.  And remember, the magnitude of your happiness will be directly proportional to your thoughts and how you choose to think about things.  Even if a situation or relationship doesn’t work out at all, it’s still worth it if it made you feel something new, and if it taught you something new.

Ex- kwara State Governor set ablaze by hoodlums

informationng.com

Nov 19, 2017 2:28 PM

Three people have been confirmed dead, while six people sustained severe injuries in Lafiagi, Kwara State as irate youths burnt down a part of the house of a former governor of Kwara State, Senator Shaaba Lafiagi.

The Public Relations Officer, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Kwara State, Mr. Henry Bilesanmi, confirmed

the death of three people, though some sources put the death toll at five.Also, the Wakillin Lafiagi, Umaru Shaaba, said the dead victims included Abubakar Alhassan and Musa Abdullahi.

According to a death certificate from the General Hospital, Lafiagi, 24-year-old Abdullahi died from gunshot wounds in the femoral region.

The death certificate, which was signed on behalf of the hospital medical director by an official, identified simply as Mrs. Abdul, stated that Abdullahi was shot by soldiers in Lafiagi township.

The Wakillin Lafiagi told our correspondent on Saturday that over 300 youths had attempted to stop the former Kwara State governor from entering the town on Friday night.

He stated that Lafiagi, who is the senator representing Kwara North Senatorial District, was attempting to enter the town from Ilorin with political associates for Saturday’s local government elections in the state.

Shaaba said the youths stopped the senator from entering the town because of uncompleted culverts and projects on Lafiagi Road, around Sodo River, about four kilometres to Lafiagi town.

He added that the youths had complained that there were avoidable deaths because of the non-completion of the projects.

Shaaba said, “The community boys complained that the place had recorded about four accidents within a short time; a couple had been killed as a result of that culvert. A Fulani was riding a motorcycle and ran into the culvert. There was a family travelling from Lagos to Abuja; because they did not know the road, they drove into the culvert.

“The youths then said, before Alhaji Shaaba (Lafiagi) and his political team would enter the town, the culvert should be covered. They also said the number of deaths that had been recorded because of the unfinished job was too high and that the culvert must be filled so that the people could use it. That was the genesis of it. By the time Shaaba came, over 300 youths had blocked the way.”

But the former governor was said to have invited the Divisional Police Officer in the area who tried in vain to mediate.

The senator was said to have later invited soldiers, who tried unsuccessfully to pacify the youths.

According to Shaaba, the security agencies later escorted the senator to his residence.

He said the aggrieved community members protested while security agents shot sporadically to disperse them.

He stated that in the ensuing pandemonium and sporadic shooting from security agents, three people were killed by bullets while six were injured.

It wa gathered that when members of the community heard about the killing, they matched to the senator’s residence and burnt part of it.

According to the, Deputy Director, Public Relations, 2 Division, Ibadan, Nigerian Army, Lt. Col. Ezindu Idima, said, “The shooting had already taken place before our soldiers were deployed when the situation was getting out of hand.

“Our soldiers only came to bring the situation under control. They were not there before and during the shooting. What our soldiers did there was just to bring the situation under control. They were not involved in the shooting.”

Marriage and cheating

This Is the Time in Your Marriage When Your Partner Is Most Likely to Cheat

trendiee.com

Nov 19, 2017 2:08 AM

Cheating is never in the game plan. Infidelity is a distressing topic, but emotion shouldn’t overwhelm one’s ability to look at it with a critical, analytical mind.

Researchers have taken it upon themselves to analyze this unfortunate topic. A University of California – Irvine study pegged the percentage of Americans who have cheated on their significant other at some point or another at 11 percent. That’s a sizeable portion of the population and a solid data set to work with. A more recent investigation into cheating habits pinpointed a timeframe in which partners were most likely to be unfaithful.

An article recently published in The Journal of Sex Research looked into this commonplace marriage breach, focusing specifically on likelihoods of cheating in different stages of a relationship. For the study, 423 participants filled out a questionnaire that involved ranking 29 reasons to resist cheating, based on importance.

The data that focused on marriage length found that men and women differ when it comes to an inclination toward infidelity over time. Women are most likely to cheat on their spouse in years 6-10 of their marriage, while men are more likely to cheat after year 11 of their marriage.

The factors that played the largest role in cheating were gender, religiosity, and marriage length. The study that the least likely person to cheat in any given marriage would fit a very specific set of characteristics; that person would be a religious female who hasn’t been married for that long. Men with this facial feature are also more inclined toward cheating.

Now since these results are based off questionnaire answers and not real-life scenarios, they should be taken with a grain of salt. But that doesn’t mean your relationship is immune from infidelity. Keep your bond strong with these little ways to strengthen your marriage every day.

SUNDAY AND OTHER DAYS

IN UNISON, embracing the most high on a day of sunday is most pleasing to him, home alone or in a community of brethren’s…in truth and in spirit…let him then lend us a helping hand, that we might drag the gospel (WHICHEVER FORM) TO ALL CORNERS OF THE  WORLD. it is a day to praise him, revel before him and acknowledge  how wonderful he has been to us through the week. this be for christians though…but whichever family you may yet hail…without discrimination for another-respecting the holy days of others…guarantees the fruitfulness of understanding and living as one in love and unison. 

saturdays for those who deem it fit, see it fit and supporting it with reasonable references…that is the significance of the day for them….mondays for you…backed with logic…deserves respect from all…knowing that we do not sleep  the same time, eat the same time…

Other days may be distinct for you, unique to you, but certainly a normality to many-few and even one…other days…and sundays are the same…worshipping him all days draws you closer…be them budhist, islamists, christians, and others…

all days are the same, respecting it as unique to others will see us live for all!!
