News Headlines (538) 1 July - 15 July 2015




ONLINE TODAY

1 July 2015 : Although your heart is drawn toward your family life, today's Capricorn Full Moon highlights your 10th House of Career. You might feel as if everyone is depending on you at work and you don't want to let anyone down. Meanwhile, those you love at home also require your undivided attention. Luckily, your newly found spiritual approach to problems enables you to advance professionally while still attending to your emotional needs. It's impossible to go wrong if you keep a firm grip on your integrity.

2 July 2015 : You have plenty to accomplish today and not enough time to do it all. Unfortunately, it may take a lot to motivate you if you would rather be enjoying the lazy days of summer. Nevertheless, you will be happier by the end of the day if you don't say yes to the first social invitation that pops up. Start your work engine and shift into gear; the more you finish early in the day, the more freedom you'll enjoy later on. It's vastly more satisfying to play when your conscience is clear.

3 July 2015 : You're relieved by the realization that the potential for positive change outweighs your fear of the unknown. You still don't know what to expect even if you're busy anticipating all the best-case scenarios. Events continue to unfold rapidly and you believe you must respond to them right away. Nevertheless, you have more time than you think, so give yourself permission now to experience the excitement without trying to figure everything out. Ironically, you will find your answers about the future by living in the present.

4 July 2015 : Your inner life may be more complicated than it appears now, yet you don't want people to know just how much you're hiding. It's a lot simpler to participate socially if you downplay your unconventional interests. Restraining your impulsive behavior is wise today because your need for self-expression clashes with your current longing to build lasting relationships. Luckily, there's really no reason to share all your fantasies with others unless that's exactly what you want to do. Nevertheless, if you hope to create a deeper connection with someone you admire, you need to reveal your heart.

5 July 2015 : You have too many options to choose from today because you are not restrained by reality. Although your fantasies might seem like pipe dreams to others, you're capable of extraordinary accomplishments now if you can focus on your ambitions. Nevertheless, it's prudent to maintain a practical perspective in spite of your penchant for daydreaming. Keeping your feet on the ground gives you the necessary traction to reach for the stars.

6 July 2015 : You may be resigned to defend a position on a matter at work now, even if it means taking an unpopular stance. Ironically, you gain a strange sort of satisfaction when you stand alone. It's not that you enjoy fighting losing battles, but there's nothing quite like the rush of adrenaline you experience when you're in warrior mode. Don't place too much stock in proving your superiority at the expense of someone else; just revel in the excitement of knowing how very alive you feel in the present moment.

7 July 2015 : You truly thought business was handled and everyone was on the same page, but now it appears you're sadly mistaken. You may have misread the situation or someone might have purposefully misled you. Either way, a disagreement flares back up as unexpressed feelings rush to the surface. Although you believe you're engaged in a fight to the finish, the Moon's return to your sign also offers you an opportunity to clear the air and begin anew. Give peace a chance; life's too short to spend time in endless conflict.

8 July 2015 : No matter how busy your schedule is today, it's time to stop and reassess your current trajectory. Although the impetuous Aries Moon can trick you into thinking you should just bolt ahead, you might end up missing what's right in front of your nose. Instead of wasting your energy starting projects that lead nowhere, visualize your final destination and create a viable plan to achieve your dreams. Establishing a steady pace is one essential element of your success, but knowing exactly where you want to go makes all the difference in the world.

9 July 2015 : The promise of romance inspires you to take a risk with your heart today. However, your passions move to the back burner as the day wears on, so express your feelings in the moment if you believe they are more than just a passing fancy. Although your emotions cool off by mid-afternoon, your thoughts grow more rebellious as mental Mercury creates sparks with irrepressible Uranus in your sign. Thankfully, your ingenuity can be used for constructive purposes if you set your intentions in advance and work for a greater cause than just your own.

10 July 2015 : You have the stamina to finish whatever endeavor you choose to start today. Your current determination and discipline enables you to outperform your peers at work. However, staying with a task until completion is still contrary to your basic instincts. Although you can surprise people with your persistence now, you are acutely aware of the personal freedom sacrificed when you wholeheartedly commit to one goal. Normally, you might bolt when the going gets tough, but now you're eager to stick around to see the fruits of your labor. If you build it, they will come.

11 July 2015 : It seems like everyone else is content to lazily soak up the sun at the pool or the beach, but you need some action. It feels as if time is flying by and you can't wait any longer to embark on your next thrilling adventure, with or without a sidekick. Nevertheless, it's best not to follow your restless impulses now since they have led to trouble more than once. Hold your horses; a little rest and relaxation today may be exactly what the doctor ordered. Life moves too fast as it is; slow down and make the good times last.

12 July 2015 : Your willingness to gamble your emotional security for the possibility of an amazing experience might upset someone close to you today. There's nothing wrong with wanting to stretch the envelope of your reality but reckless behavior won't likely bring the satisfaction you want. Nevertheless, you can make the most of your current curiosity by making a methodical plan before you do anything else. Remember, sometimes being prepared is just as important as what you do after you swing into motion.

13 July 2015 : You're often the first one out the door in the morning, but you might prefer lingering over breakfast today. Your fantasies may have you yearning to stay home, lost in sweet bliss with someone you love. However, even if you could temporarily shut out the world, the idea probably sounds better than the reality. Anyway, you can't hide from work no matter how tempting it seems. Fortunately, you don't have to go to extreme measures to experience emotional satisfaction. Simply taking the time to let others know how much you care deepens the connections.

14 July 2015 : It might feel as if someone stole your wallet or broke your heart today. Or perhaps you're the one who is raining on someone else's parade by withholding affection. You may be experiencing a sense of loss if you think you're coming up short in the money or love department. However dissatisfied you are with your current circumstances, there is a silver lining to the dark cloud above you as you learn to temporarily get by with less. Keep the faith; your clarity will enable you to define what you truly want once the blue skies return.

15 July 2015 : Although profound resistance to your plans can stop you in your tracks today, don't give up on a good idea just because someone tells you it has no merit. If you don't understand why you are running into trouble, stop and listen carefully to the message of the Cancer New Moon as it floods your 4th House of Security. Obstacles are more easily handled once you accept that your current fear of change is unwarranted. Ironically, it's less important to reach your destination now than it is to fine-tune your plans. Safety comes first.

EDUCATION : Revolution and its sizzling Economic Revolution. But you haven't heard about its other great social upheaval - the Chinese Sexual Revolution - and like everything in that country it's happening at warp speed. It's China's version of the 60s revolution - on steroids.
China's Sexual Revolution is the world's first glimpse - often using secret cameras - into this forbidden new China. It's a surprising portrait of the Chinese today: the new free love generation that's left their parents in shock; the booming sex industry that's creating an HIV crisis; the new generation of career women and feminists that suddenly wants it all - while millions of men feel left out.

This long untold story goes back to the days of Chairman Mao, who made sexuality a great taboo. He ordered everyone to wear unisexual Mao suits, and forbid women from wearing sexy clothing, getting stylish haircuts, or even wearing make-up. Men and women were expected to be comrades - not lovers - though Mao himself enjoyed an emperor's sex life, seeking virgins to retain his "youthö".

China's sexual libido was bottled up for 50 years, but now it's bursting loose, with dramatic effects on marriage, personal freedom and the government itself. Published on Apr 27, 2015 by Doc Film

Ethnic conflict in Burundi can be traced from when Major Pierre Buyoya took power at the end of July 1996, when he claimed his authority over the people of Burundi, when he said that the previous government had collapsed, seen from the definition of the modern state standards. Burundi now has "become one of the major focus of the international community to elaborate methods of post-Cold War conflict prevention." Of course we can and should take inspiration from the progress of democratic practice in the United States, or in any other country. But, do not forget, the same goal can't always be done in the same way in different places and times. Autonomous attitude and creativity is needed, or what is called by my partner as "contextual innovative role of the actor who created it". If the essence of democracy is the idea of the structure built by sanity, the fretfulness of the election, let alone indicates a failure of democracy, indeed more accurately described as "an aberration of democracy with democracy flag hijack". People involved in an embarrassing attempt to overthrow the legitimate institutions will be detained and processed according to the law and only under the law. It's up to the courts to ensure punishment for them, according to the law in force in Burundi. But, Mr. Pierre Nkurunziza, I feel you are also opening old wounds in your country.

Only one word in my mind today: reconciliation. Indeed, it is hard to avoid conflicts in life. Although the conflict is one of the doors leading to the change, but it's also at the root of all psychological problems we experience, ranging from depression, stress, up to the trauma. At this point, we need reconciliation. It's a basic human need that can't be ignored at two levels, namely the level of personal and social level. On personal level, we need to make peace with ourselves. We need to be aware, that we need to change in order to survive and thrive in the new circumstances. At the social level, we need to reconcile with other parties. All the hatred and revenge, as a result of past events need to be understood and then surpassed. The past should be considered and discussed openly by involving all the parties involved. Ultimately, reconciliation is not only a question of political peace, it's also the path to peace of mind. May peace be with you, Balkan!

The Kosovo Exodus (RT Documentary). Following NATO intervention in the bloody Serbian conflict of 1999, the Republic of Kosovo achieved independence. The new country failed to restore its economy and build the proud and prosperous nation that Kosovars had dreamed of. Fifteen years later, when Serbia reduced border controls, an unprecedented illegal migration from Kosovo began, which locals call the "Exodus". Using Serbia as a corridor into the EU through Hungary, thousands of migrants hoped for a new start but found themselves thwarted at every turn. The dream of a new life has become impossible for most; their hopes dashed, they are eventually deported and forced back to economic uncertainty.

Al Jazeera World - Ramadan in Kenya. Muslims have lived in Kenya for centuries and today make up about 11 percent of the country's population. These communities live on the coast in cities like Mombasa - where nearly half of the city's inhabitants are Muslim - and in the country's northeast.Ramadan in Kenya meets Muslims living in Mombasa, Kisumu and Nairobi and captures their lives and culture in their homes, at work and in their places of worship.They talk about what aspects of Ramadan mean the most to them.Aseef Akram is a 25-year-old halal butcher living in Mombasa. He talks about the "spirit of Ramadan" in the city, the culture of openness towards those who are fasting, and about breaking that fast with the coconut dishes of the region."For me [during Ramadan], I tend to be most spiritually connected to my God, my creator," says Akram.In the western city of Kisumu, Fauza Asya Kombo picks and sells bananas for a living and is raising five children on her own after her husband died.Although earning a livelihood can be a struggle, she says, "When we've finished [iftar], we give any leftover bread to our neighbours. Food doesn't go to waste ... Wasting leads to non-belief."Arafat bin Talebis, a sixth grader at a shelter for orphans, talks about the peace he gains from his Quranic studies and the importance of his faith in his life."To me, the month of Ramadan acts like a guide. If I've made mistakes before Ramadan, I'll avoid making them once Ramadan starts," he says.From the Quran memorisation competitions which attract children studying in madrassas in Tanzania and Uganda - to Akram's family using the opportunity to eat together to break their fast, Ramadan in Kenya experiences the spirituality, traditions and significance of the holy month through the eyes of individuals who observe it.
Ramadan is a very good exercise for Muslims, not to restrict, but to reduce what had been done excessively, such as eating, smoking, speaking, acting, thinking, having sex at specified hours, and so on. Islam came to the awareness of a world marked by the adage "to have more not to be more.". A world that offers even imperative telling us to get more and "more than more". Indeed, the food and drink we ingest every day is quite excessive, causing the excess in the form of fat, cholesterol, gout, hypertension, or hyperkalemia, etc., so as to tackle it we need a variety of new facilities or services such as fitness center, yoga courses, diet program to plastic surgery -- which in fact it requires a high cost -- only to eliminate or reduce what we have created excessively so diligently. So, is there a group, self, or this nation, experience sanctity, self-renewal, or a kind of "small renaissance" every time after Ramadan?

Hard Earned - Dreams deferred. In the fourth episode of Hard Earned, we meet Percy Evans, 66, and his wife Beverly, 65, who are struggling to keep up with their bills in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; a former industrial capital.After being layed off as a maintenance worker during the recession, Percy now has a temporary job as a cleaner at an inner city mall. But earning only $8 an hour, he doesn't believe he'll be able to retire any time soon.In the last 20 years in the US, the number of people aged 65 and older in the workforce has more than doubled. In 1994 it was 3.7 million; in 2014 it was at eight million. We also meet Hilton Kennedy III, a US citizen raised in Mexico, who juggles two full-time jobs, working between 80-90 hours a week to support his pregnant girlfriend.We follow Hilton and Diana as they move out of their one-bedroom house at a trailer park to an expensive new apartment. We are also with them as tragic news surrounding Diana's pregnancy bites.As we follow our characters hardship and occasional good fortune in Hard Earned , we see how these couples and families are proud and determined to make it on their own to secure a better more stable future.

101 East - Southern Exposure. King George Island has been described as one of the strangest places on the planet. Located at the far northern tip of Antarctica at the very bottom of the world, it has an extraordinary international community, complete with a school, a post office and even a Russian Orthodox church. Putting their national interests aside, 14 countries are united in pursuing scientific research into climate change. And Asia is leading the way – with China and South Korea investing heavily into their remote stations. 101 East gains a rare glimpse into the lives of those who work on this wild frontier of science. By day, scientists wrestle wildlife and the weather, but at night they relax with salsa dancing, basketball and braving Russian ice baths. But with mineral riches under the ice, will profits end this unique cooperation? 

Hard Earned - Fight for fifteen. In the fifth episode of Hard Earned, De'Jaun (DJ) Jackson, 23, quits his job at Walgreens to ramp up his work as a union organiser.DJ has joined the Workers Organising Committee of Chicago to work on 'Fight for 15' - a campaign to raise hourly wages.He now makes twice what he earned at Walgreens, and although he's working more than 40 hours a week, DJ finds his new role fulfilling. "I understand the struggle," DJ says. "That's all this job is about and I enjoy it. It's fun. Tiring? But I enjoy it, I really do."Although he's bringing in more money - and the family are able to enjoy a rare outing at the mall - DJ says he still walks in the shoes of the workers he's fighting for, whom he believes society is too quick to judge."The public per se look at McDonald's workers and Walgreens or Macy's workers just like, You guys made the choice to do that or not do something in life to have success. Wrong," says DJ. "There are people working at McDonald’s, working fry machines that just wasn’t given an opportunity.”Emilia reflects on her former drug and alcohol addictions, and later receives a surprise, paid opportunity to bring her personal story to a larger audience.Jose and Elizabeth draw closer to buying a new home where their parents can also live.We see how Hilton and Diana are coping with their recent loss after complications with Diana's pregnancy. In anticipation of having children, the couple had moved out of their one-bedroom garage in a trailer park and into a bigger home and Hilton juggled two jobs. Still, Hilton's hard work hasn't gone unnoticed and he gets tipped for a managerial position.For the families whose stories we're following in Hard Earned , post-recession hardship starts to give way to some new opportunities and fresh starts.

Oh, he already has a wife. Well, but I'm sure it does not prevent a woman wants to be his harem, maybe? Well, any other woman. Definitely, she's not me. Well, many women always feel that being a part of a rich husband's life will make them happy. I'm just glad to see a muslim can be a rich man, because Muslims are always associated with poverty and ignorance. Helo, Arab princes, supposedly with your condition, you can be the boss to U.S., not vice versa. Supposedly, your wealth can counteract Islamophobia throughout the world. The U.S. likes the rich Arab, you know?

"Thank you for your perception! I like your romantic side, even if I do not always comment and I'm glad that you're in my circle of friends."
(Courtesies by: Wolfgang A. Gerhardt)

Wolfgang A.Gerhardt : May be you like this Sunday collage

Cisca Zarmansyah : Before today, there never was a person doing this to me. You create a simple matter to look special. This is a special thing for me.

Cisca Zarmansyah : Thank you. I love it. I love you, my friend.

CieL- FreYa Ceastle : Hmm, he's so nice...















"I am me.
In all the world,
there is no one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me
is authentically mine,
because I alone chose it --
I own everything about me:
my body,
my feelings,
my mouth,
my voice,
all my actions,
whether they be to others or myself.
I own my fantasies,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my fears.
I own my triumphs and successes,
all my failures and mistakes.
Because I own all of me,
I can become intimately acquainted with me.
By so doing,
I can love me
and be friendly with all my parts.
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know
-- but as long as I am friendly
and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully
look for solutions
to the puzzles and ways
to find out more about me.
However I look and sound,
whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time
is authentically me.
If later some parts of how I looked,
sounded,
thought,
and felt
turn out to be unfitting,
I can discard that which is unfitting,
keep the rest,
and invent something new
for that which I discarded.
I can see,
hear,
feel,
think,
say, and do.
I have the tools to survive,
to be close to others,
to be productive,
and to make sense
and order out of the world of people
and things outside of me.
I own me,
and therefore,
I can engineer me.
I am me,
and I am okay."
