Parable

“Once upon the time, there was a very poor young man, who wanted to marry one girl, whose parents were very rich and known in their community. Many boys tried to marry their daughter, but the father would always decline their offers, due to their status and capitals they own.

This young man was so poor, that he didn’t even had a good cloths to come and meet the family. After many long nights of thinking, he asked his friend to call one of the biggest banks in the city, asking for hiring young man for an executive position, claiming to be a husband of that rich girl. When the manager of the bank heard the family name, he hired the boy on the spot. Young man worked very good, he was extremely smart, and in one month he made enough money to come and meet the girl.

When he called the parents and asked for permission to marry their daughter, the first question was about his position and status. When the father heard about his high status in bank, he allowed this marriage to happen.”


 

The moral in this story is very simple, if you really want to succeed in life, don’t just wait for it to happen! G-d gives us chances, but we need to acknowledge them, and take the first step forward!

One of my favorite movies made by Robin Williams:

   “Bicentennial Man”

 

human--relationships.com
Bicentennial Man

An unforgettable role was done by Robin Williams in this movie, played as a robot,  who falls in love with human girl, who becomes a woman and keeps on getting older, while a robot still stays young and lives forever! 

Dramatic love leans him to become a human!  His will was to die along with her, becomes true!


 

If for some reason you never watched this movie, I highly recommend to watch on the brilliant movie played by Robin Williams!

A Few Takeaways From A Tour Of Paisley Park With Prince


Originally posted on CBS Minnesota:

CHANHASSEN, Minn. (AP) — What we learned during a seven-hour odyssey at Paisley Park:

— Prince is a mean pingpong player: A pingpong table is the centerpiece of the rehearsal space outside of the studio at Paisley Park, and it gets plenty of use. Prince shows he’s pretty deft player — he hits from wild angles, and it’s a wild sight, his white shoes with acrylic heels lighting up blue with every move. Alas, he loses his game by a few points.

— Prince goes to YouTube for music too: Some Prince fans who want to go to YouTube to pull up their favorite track or performance have long complained that Prince is overly aggressive in removing that music on copyright infringement grounds. So they might be surprised that he uses it to look up music and old performances of others. When the point is underscored as he watches an…

A room with a view


The second assignment for today’s  writing 101 is very creative for me, since there is  one place where I would zoom my vision at any time, as long as I will remember. 


Sitting on the warm white sand of the San Diego beach, sun is going down slowly, reflecting the crystal red and orange lightning from the sky to the waves. Softly hitting the beach front with a musical effects and magically colored waves appeared to be very gentle and friendly.

Looking for the best spot to hide from suddenly appeared  population of college kids, I walked further away and found beautifly big stone, great private piece, where I can  take couple hours of nap by the ocean. As I placed myself on the sand, pulling the cigarette out, and slowly starting to smoke with an enjoyment of life, when my eyes looked at the window of the house, facing right at me.

On the back wall there was a very big mirror, reflecting all the lighting music from outside, which created a view of unlimited ocean. Sun was almost down and the illusion of those color made the house look on fire. Across the other side of the room, I noticed an old lady sitting in the rocket chair and looking not on the ocean, but on the mirror, reflection the ocean.

The house itself was nothing special, but the view and the colors coming through that mirror made the view so memorable, that my eyes will never forget it!

Unlock the Mind


Today’s first assignment in writing-101 was about freely expressing out words, and creating pretty much a soup “without ingredients”, which gave me a great idea to write about one specific subject I wanted to address a while ago.

Depression is a very strong sickness, that can lean toward suicide, one of the fresh examples was Robin William, who didn’t find the way out, but end his life. At that moment, for him probably, was the best way out, not knowing or realizing how many people were hurt about this incident. My personal respect and love to his work I addressed here on this blog.

Many comments were addressed and replied, and I learned something for myself from all of you: depression doesn’t go away on it’s own. It’s not cancer, but it’s still a stage of sickness, that can’t be easily healed.

Being occupied, and busy helps a lot, but being left alone after so much attention, can also be a factor to depression and suicide. Any sport activity will be a great support to your mental health, either, you are depressed, or not.


I found one of the greatest ways that helps me with relieving my stress and I would like to share it with you…


One of my favorite sports is table tennis, it’s a very popular game in Europe, but definitely very hard to find in the United States.

My adventure in table tennis began at age of 9, when my father took me to the professional sport club, where I totally fell in love with the “lightweight ball and a paddle”. My first coach was a very big man, with a strong personality. He had a very hard time teaching me, due to my little size. At 9 years old, my head was still not reaching the table, I was playing from under the table! It was very challenging for everyone in the beginning.

Especially I remember that moment, where my father decided to check on my reaction. He pulled out his wallet and through it at me, very suddenly and very fast.

I was shocked, but I had not reaction to move and protect myself from flying object so fast. I stood there, while his wallet caught my head! That was my first lesson.

Two months later, I was playing and reaching the table, and my dad tried to pull the same stub again, didn’t work!

I caught his wallet with my hand without even looking at it.

My progress was humongous, and everyone was pleased on how talented I was towards learning. I was challenging for everyone, and my willingness to be the best moved me really fast and far ahead from my sport team mates.

Unfortunately, any sport requires being healthy! Breaking or damaging the right hand, was the end of my table tennis adventure at age of 13. Not my tears, begging or willingness to continue at that moment wouldn’t matter, I was damaged, and winning the olympic games, requires to be the best! My hand was healing slowly, and was not as strong anymore. Every game was a challenge, every time I holded a paddle was painful. That was my first real disappointment in life!

I lost my hope, I lost my game, I felt like a loser! I lost the chance to became an olympic champion!


I was so strong at that time…. hiding my tears inside, I pulled a huge smile on my face and said: ” Oh well, at least I have so much free time! What should I do next?”

From being occupied for about 6 hours a day, 7 days a week,  to nothing, but school,  was great! I still continued to play with friends, but it was just for fun.

Many years passed by,  having kids kept me busy, but the stress is growing while kids are growing, until one day I found my old paddle and a strong memories hit me hard.

Oh, I wanted to play so much, not just for fun. I wanted to play with professional players, who are stronger than me. While searching online for table tennis club, I started realizing that my kids are still so little, I can’t be playing any time I want to. My obsession and my depressing became more and more obvious.

One day, I was driving by our public district park, decided to ask inside, if there is any table tennis club around.  When I walked inside to ask, I saw a huge gym with 8 tables and many strong players from all over the World!

My heart stopped for a minute or two…

I fell in love with “a lightweight ball and a paddle” all over again!

Being able to get out once or twice a week to play my favorite sport, makes my depression and everyday life to step on the different level. I feel the power, the connection, even the smile on my face.

This is my personal journey, and I am sure that almost everybody have a favorite sport! I highly recommend to everyone to support and respect each other, if it’s a spouse that  loves you, let him or her support your sport, or even better to enjoy it together!

‘Genetically Modifie d Micro Humans’ to b e ‘Farmed’ for Drug Testing by 2017


Originally posted on a12iggymom's Blog:

Developers of artificial micro-humans, or ‘mini GM humans,’ are hoping to release their technology on the market by 2017. No this isn’t a sci-fi joke. Scientists are developing artificial humans in the same vein as GM plants with the hope that these creations will replace the need for using animals in laboratory testing.

Artificial humans will be ‘farmed’ with interacting organs that can be used in drug tests, speeding up the process of FDA and other government regulatory approvals, and supposedly without damaging rats or other animals currently used in laboratories. The GM humans will contain smartphone-sized microchips that will be programmed to replicate up to 10 major human organs.

Each GM human will be tiny – roughly the size of a microchip itself, simulating the response of humans to substances inhaled, absorbed in the blood, or exposed to in the intestinal tract.

Early versions comprising an artificial kidney…
