  2. :confused: I don’t see the point here. Look people Somalis live all over the world. I happen to have family in China, Malaysia, Australia, the Middle East, and South ,Central and western Africa and not for getting Western world and even Russia. We are nomads and I strong believe that. It’s in our nature to explore and travel. Its no biggie finding out that there are Somalia in Brazil, I knew that 7yrs ago. A Somali works at the national airport in Brazil and he is a very friendly man. He even helped a cousin of mine when he was on transit in that country.

  6. There is a growing trend of women getting into high paying jobs than their counterparts. Is this a problem for men? A question I would like to ask is “Would you feel secured in your marriage if your wife earned more than you?†Big-Earning Wives (and the Men Who Love Them) BY KIMBERLY GOAD In a growing number of marriages, it's the woman who is bringing home the big paycheck. Is she stressed? Yes. Resentful? A little. Would she trade places with her husband? Not on your life. By the time Jane and John Metcalfe* were ready to start a family, they had both reached a similar level of success. She was vice president of a New York public relations agency, and he was pastry chef at a well-regarded New Jersey restaurant. They were typical Type A personalities working long hours in jobs they loved. Then Jane became pregnant with their first child, and they came face-to-face with the dilemma that affects all working couples with kids: What to do about child care? They didn't want to put their infant in day care. They couldn't afford a nanny. So after much agonizing, they decided that one of them would cut back on work hours to stay home with the baby, while the other continued to work full time. "My husband and I want to give our children traditional things - like a home and a backyard," says Jane, 37. "In the end, our decision came down to: Who had the better job in terms of salary and benefits?" The answer was Jane. She's one of a growing number of women who've become the primary breadwinners in their families. What would have been considered an uncommon role reversal even 10 years ago is now anything but. One in three married women in America is out earning her husband, according to the Bureau of Labour Statistics. "When I started as a financial adviser 20 years ago, there were almost no couples in this situation," says Bob Mecca, a certified financial adviser in Mt. Prospect, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. "Now 40 percent of the couples who come through my door have a wife who earns more than her husband." The simplest explanation for this change is a practical one: Women today are better educated and better prepared for the workforce than ever. "The number of women getting high school, college and advanced degrees is higher now than at any other point in history," says Randi Minetor, author of Breadwinner Wives and the Men They Marry. In fact, women today are more educated than men: In 1998, there were 125,000 more college-educated women than men, according to the Center for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education. By 2010, that gap is expected to double. A survey on of women who earn more than their husbands confirms the impact of these trends. Most high-earning wives said they make the higher salary in the marriage not because they're more aggressive about job hunting or working longer hours, but typically because they are better educated, and therefore landed in a more lucrative field. But this arrangement also reflects a seismic shift in the way husbands and wives view each other, says Stephanie Coontz, director of research at the Council on Contemporary Families and author of the upcoming book Marriage, a History. "Women have earning power, so they're less intent on finding a husband who is a high earner and more interested in finding someone who is an all-around good partner," she says. "And men are letting go of the idea of, 'I should make more or have the more prestigious job because I'm the man.' Instead they're both saying, 'Let's do what's best for all of us.'" It's a modern choice that reflects modern financial and cultural realities, but it also presents new challenges. The same conflicts that rattle every marriage - money decisions, division of household and child-care duties - can become even more fraught when she's the breadwinner. Yet it's also a liberating setup: Let go of traditional earning roles, and you're free to make lots of other choices based not on your parents' marriage, or anyone else's, but rather on what works for you. Here's how some very different couples navigate this new path - and what they've learned that can strengthen any marriage.

  8. where do you all see yourselves to be in the five years?
  9. Evil has no easy explanation. Everyone is evil and is good. Sometimes we watch ourselves do something evil Frozen in a scream that's never heard. We cannot stop ourselves, so we go on, Knowing somewhere else the horror plays And plays and plays until we are forgiven, Healed by someone's gift of unearned love. When someone has been tortured as a child, Evil, like a mad dog, crouches near. One buries it deep in a vaulted, lead-lined chamber, But zombie-like it stalks the world within. It's strange that darkened children need forgiveness For evil that they suffer, innocent. But guilt's the trademark of humiliation, Burned into the flesh of memory. Love washes over evil like an ocean, Sweeping over seething, fisted anger, Drowning it in cold, unquiet depths, Leaving you weak and weeping on the strand. You wouldn't be yourself without the pain That twists inside like penitential dancers, Making you the stage of some strange beauty, Like no one else, the host of our redemption.
  10. Remember, too, the holy month of fasting. Absorb the word of God like burning sand. Make yourself through prayer a single yearning, A single breath of faith, a single turning, Dawn to dusk a diamond in God's hand. A moment of pure faith is everlasting, Nor need one know aught else to understand.
  11. Somalia: UN helps in first steps to re-establish national police force 14 October 2005 – With Somalia riven by factional fighting and lacking a functioning central government for the past 14 years, the first steps have been taken to rebuild a national civilian police force at a United Nations-backed workshop. The two-month-long Seminar and Training Workshop for 65 police officers ended yesterday in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, with the UN Development Programme (UNDP) Rule of Law and Security Programme, which has also staged field missions to identify and prioritize police infrastructure rehabilitation, providing the necessary technical and financial support. “UNDP continues to be committed to the establishment of a civilian police force in Somalia, as this can only be a benefit for all of us,†said Maxwell Gaylard, the agency’s Resident Representative. “Not only does it allow for the protection of human life, but the culture of rule of law then triggers private investment and allows humanitarian and developmental organizations access into areas where they are needed, all which work towards improving the lives of the Somali people,†he added. During the workshop’s first three weeks, high ranking officers of the former Somali Police Force worked on a two-year development plan to rebuild the force that defined command and coordination structures, discussed reactivation of police personnel, reviewed police regulations and laws, conducted training needs analysis and selected officers to participate in the workshop. In the second phase, a comprehensive training programme was developed, including a training syllabus and manual, and trainers were identified and trained. A technical facilitation team composed of law enforcement experts from UNDP and the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) as well as Ugandan police trainers assisted their Somali counterparts through the process.
