Self-leadership begins with self-discovery

Self-discovery, also known as self-awareness, precedes self-leadership. You cannot dominate, nor can you lead what you do not know. In the process of leading our lives, we must come to fully understand ourselves. I read it in a book somewhere that “know yourself” is the best and most profound advice ever given to mankind. You can overestimate your abilities or underestimate the power you possess when you don’t know yourself. It starts with self-discovery. No one will come up to you and tell you, hey, it’s time for you to discover yourself. It is a do-it-yourself job. I share some suggestions on how you can get to know your true self.

Many “ordinary” men and women walk our streets on a daily basis and die lives without living because they have never taken the time to discover who they really are on the inside. It’s time to discover hidden talents, abilities, and natural gifts. Everyone can be someone. Self-discovery begins with an honest self-assessment and audit. It’s about “getting to know yourself”, who you are in essence, what you believe in and what motivates you. It’s not about who you pretend to be or who you think you are, but who you really are. You can fool others but you cannot fool yourself. Nor is it about who others think and say you are. Many people live frustrated lives because they try to fit into a mold that they were never designed to fit. Self-discovery can be a lifelong journey for some, but it’s worth it. The sooner you embark on it, the sooner you begin to participate in an effective life.

Some people accept the reality that is given to them instead of creating their own reality. If you don’t know who your parents are, your school teacher, your village will give you an identity. If they can give you an identity, they can determine what you can and cannot do. Yes, they love you and mean well, but self-discovery is your personal responsibility. Biblical King David would have been a shepherd boy all his life if he had given in to the wishes of his father and brothers, but he was destined to be king. Even if there is a king within you, you could not ascend the throne if you allow what others think of you to become too important.

I would have become an academic if I had fulfilled my parents’ dream for me. I probably would have been successful at that, but there were multiple gifts and things that I needed to discover for myself. I found that I have a desire to inspire others by writing, speaking, and singing when I did this exercise on my own. I also discovered that although my background was in sales and marketing, I had a passion and desire to develop and inspire others to reach their full potential; This article you are reading is one of the manifestations of that desire.

Perhaps you are limiting who you are to what you do. You are not your job or whatever it is you do for a living. You can be more and do more. You could be one of those people who ever read something and was inspired to “reach higher,” but life’s challenges happened and they pushed you back and forth. Maybe you lost income, dropped out of school, lost motivation, reduced the size of your dream, or just stopped dreaming. Don’t let circumstances and setbacks define you. Yes, you failed but you are not a failure.

You may have intended to start developing a skill or read good books. It is not too late to start. I understand that the average CEO absorbs at least fifty books in a year. That is almost a book a week. You can also do this if you intend to have an advantage in your career or business. Leaders are readers. In 2003, I discovered the power of reading, absorbed twenty books in that season, and have become an avid reader ever since. You don’t have to start with twenty, start with a few chapters a day. You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. The journey of fifty books a year begins with the first page, the chapter in which you decide to sit and read. Don’t limit yourself to physical books, reading also incorporates listening to audiobooks, especially when you’re “on the go.”

I hope, in my own way, I have been able to guide him towards the discovery of his true self. You have the ability to take charge of your life and lead yourself. It will take initiative; You owe it to yourself. It does not matter age or youth. This is a reminder that there is more for you. Find out and you will thank me.

Here are some questions you can use to conduct a self-assessment. Feel free to add yours.

  1. What are my gifts and talents that I was born with?

  2. What would my ideal job be if it were unlimited?

  3. What would you be doing right now if you didn’t have to win?

  4. What are your values, that is, what is important to you?

  5. What do I think I was born for?

I hope the questions above help you on your way to becoming all that you should be.

The Headlines: Putin Turns Down a Place at the NWO’s Top Table Promises to Be Its Formidable Enemy!

Together, there are two areas in which we must act, our freedom is at risk and I do not mean that we only read in the media what the state wants us to read, or we will be referred to as racist every time we oppose it. to pay a benefit or see Brexit. No, we will be forever in bondage to pleasure, as the object of black rituals for the self-proclaimed elite within the New World Order.

1. Brexit, Orban, Salvini, Nigel Farage, Marine LePen and Geert Wilders, the Catalan now must be listened to, we must support them, they are on our side.

2. Snowflakes is not a great term, but you must, for your safety, step out of the shadow of the Totalitarians. There are over 800 Auswitzch-style camps ready and waiting for you. Obama has ordered coffins by the millions.

Putin vilified, it’s hard to dispute Novichok’s events, given the CCTV coverage, but did Putin do it? Or was he duped by the New World Order for refusing to comply?

A single world currency is requested! In May 2009, just before the G-20 economic summit in London, a Chinese central bank official, Zhou Xiaochuan, made headlines around the world when they began to call for a new global currency to replace the US dollar.

Zhou Xiaochuan, is the only name from China that I can see on the Bilderberg attendee list. Its tentacles go very far! Imagine the devastation a single currency has caused in Europe and then magnify that around the world. US Representative Michelle Bachman asked Geithner, “I wonder, would you categorically give up on America moving away from the dollar and switching to a global currency as China suggested this morning?” To which Geithner replied, “I would. Yes.” He then asked the chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke, who was sitting next to him, and he replied, “I would too.” Twenty-four hours later, they were both in favor of a single currency. Geithner completely changed his mind, from being against a global currency to supporting it, and yet while speaking at a Council on Foreign Relations press conference. I guess they didn’t realize that Zhou was a Bilderberg.

It is time to wake up because we are in a moment where our future, our freedom, will take one of two paths. If we fall asleep to the same activities that have ruined our existence for about twenty years, then we are in serious trouble, this is no longer a conspiracy! The New World Order is real, and in its place, May, Clarke, Maude, Major are the guardians of the disappearance of the United Kingdom, Rudd, Balls, Adonis, etc., the foot soldiers. The other way is to restore our democracy, to restore our well-being, but this requires enlightenment, it requires firm cooperation between us, this is no longer a time for a divisive attitude, it is a global question of survival. I hope you choose the last path and defend freedom, the alternatives are bleak.

“This challenge requires the equivalent of a war against something as evil as totalitarianism. Anything else would be like trying to put out a forest fire with gasoline or spitting on a (Category 5) hurricane. Anything else would be a failure of the age. “.

John Feffer – Director of Foreign Policy Studies at the Institute for Policy Studies.

Still, you wake up to the headlines about saving the Tories, saving Labor! We should no longer care one iota about these two parts. For twenty years we have pursued a destructive agenda, bringing Britain to its knees. I can no longer care less about the snouts that occupy the green or red seats of our historic parliament building, which have embarrassed and harmed us all, bringing us to the brink of servitude.

Why have they behaved so badly? Simple, they have acted in unison with the snouts on the other side of the channel and the Atlantic. What we have experienced and will see if we do not fully wake up and stop this rot, the endless march towards a utopia from which only the elites benefit.

The Bilderbergs under the New World Order have 25,000 strategically located controllers.

Some 25,000 officers are on the scene, in the army, in the police, in the judiciary, they take orders only from their paymaster, and it’s not us! Free speech is at risk, and not just in the UK, it is also at risk of being canceled in the US and across Europe. We have seen the intimidation tactics of a foreign government imposing democratic values ​​on other nations, but we are moving inextricably towards their doctrine. His form of oppression. How are they doing this?

Only two types of people stand in the way of free speech, snowflakes and totalitarians!

They are creating wars, internal conflicts, depriving indigenous peoples of their rights, closing down freedom of expression. This cannot happen, we are a country based on freedoms, all our success has been based on the freedom to express oneself and the freedom to have clear beliefs. As an example at the height of the cold war, at a time when the Soviet Union had placed much of its armaments along the border of Europe, communism was a dirty word, but still, without fear of prosecution. , he could position himself to express such views. In fact, he could stand as a candidate for elections. His chances of winning were remote, but he could still stand and debate freely. Today we take advantage of that freedom and we do it in the most divisive way. Only two types of people stand in the way of free speech, snowflakes and totalitarians! We know what happens when you disagree with a Lenin or Hitler they treat you with and they treat you severely, if not terminally.

I’m not a fan of Tommy Robinson, but we should all pay attention to his treatment. Blair and Brown worked hard to stop this accusation that blamed children! At no point believing that they, the boys, were vulnerable, but believing that these underage girls were making an informed choice, thus allowing these men to rape them, some as young as 11 years old. Consider the health worker who first noticed this trend and reported about it was fired in 2017. The first victim who handed over chapter and verse to the police in 2008 was discredited by the same force that should have given him shelter. Tommy Robinson is in jail for reporting the details of the trial. Details that were already in the public domain.

The New World Order will not save us from chaos as they have created it.

If you are a liberal holdover, then look to savor the New World Order, but don’t drag the rest of us with you. As Putin has said, the New World Order under Bilderberg’s control has all its soldiers in place, the road to subjugation will only accelerate from here. Feeling sure that freedom of expression is not the first sign, we have seen the behavior of our politicians so that they have little regard for us, their electorate. They never expected to fight in other elections since a democracy because those days would soon disappear.

“WE HAVE TAKEN CARE OF ALL THE WORDS YOU HEAR, THE SONGS THAT YOU SING THE PICTURES THAT PLEASE YOUR EYES ARE ONE FOR ALL, WE ALL WORK FOR ONE, COMMON CHILDREN NEVER NEED TO ASK AS OR WHY”

The Temple of the Syrinx, is sung from the perspective of the rulers of a fictional world where elite leaders enjoy all the pleasures of life, while the masses of people live in servitude.

The G20 gets media coverage, why not the New World Order?

This is in large part how the New World Order could be created without much opposition. It is only now, after the foundations have been built and its construction almost finished, that such a thing is publicly mentioned, as its secret creators promise that it will bring a new era of world peace and prosperity. The New World Order is basically the plan to create a socialist global government headed by a world leader and a wealthy ruling class of elite politicians and businessmen, and turn the rest of the world’s population into powerless peasants who are endlessly trapped in the daily grind. . Everyone living in the New World Order will use a single global electronic currency and will have little to no political power, and will have an advanced, high-tech surveillance system that will keep an eye on everyone to keep them at bay.

Consider when the G-20 meets or is there a similar economic forum where leaders of the world’s most powerful countries are covered primarily by the media as the main story, but virtually the only coverage of the Bilderberg meetings comes from independent journalists and smaller websites, or perhaps the occasional article in a European newspaper. Repeated blackouts cannot possibly be because the event is not newsworthy. There is sure to be a secret agreement between the owners of the main American and European media outlets, and the Bilderberg group itself, where the two entities have agreed that the editors will act as gatekeepers and will kill any story of any journalist who even tries to cover the event. . .

Population reduction subject to a later date …

However, I will say that for those who are interested, look at who bought land in the Patagonia of South America. The West has been weakened and the East has been strengthened.

My advice don’t allow 5G on your street corner. Good luck if you are lucky, the future is red with white hat!

Everything You Need to Know About Antioxidants: Make a Smart, Informed Decision for Good Health

What are antioxidants?

An antioxidant is: 1) a chemical compound or a substance that inhibits oxidation. Or 2) a (natural) substance, such as vitamin E, vitamin C, or beta-carotene, that is believed to protect the body’s cells from the damaging effects of oxidation.

Antioxidants can be found naturally in whole foods where they are generally grouped together; or they are manufactured synthetically and sold as supplements, usually with a single antioxidant rather than several.

What are the free radicals? Do we need antioxidants?

Oxidation occurs when free radicals (highly reactive, high-energy particles) violently bounce around the body and damage cells. Free radicals can be produced within the body through natural biological processes or introduced from the outside through tobacco smoke, toxins, pollutants, and suboptimal eating habits. Free radicals are believed to accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue, and age-related diseases. The antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables help neutralize free radicals in the body.

In general, it is recommended that people consume 7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day: 2 servings of fruit and 5 servings of vegetables. Most people do not eat the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables every day. Additionally, most industrially grown fruits and vegetables do not contain the same nutritional benefits that are available in organically grown whole foods and they also contain more toxins (sources of free radicals) for the body to fight off.

Why are antioxidants found in plants?

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert light energy from the sun into stored physical energy (nutrition). Photosynthesis exposes plants to a large number of free radicals. Plants produce antioxidants to protect themselves from the damage of these free radicals. Antioxidant plant pigments, mainly carotenoids and polyphenols that are responsible for shine.

the orange, red, blue, and purple colors of many fruits, berries, and algae provide most of this protection. Research has shown that human ingestion of these plant-based antioxidants results in similar protection for humans. Research also shows that antioxidants work synergistically (where the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual effects) and are much more effective when a spectrum of antioxidants is ingested, rather than individual isolated compounds. For example, the herb, thyme, contains more than 20 antioxidants separated alone.

Also, when food is grown organically, without the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides, the plant must become stronger (through fighting), thus imparting more nutrition, in order to survive. While industrially grown foods with liberal use of synthetic herbicides and pesticides rely on chemicals to protect them and therefore do not contain the same available nutrition as organically grown foods by up to 60% less.

What are ORAC units? How many do we need?

ORAC, short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, is a standardized measure of a substance’s total antioxidant power, which is its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals. The more free radicals a substance can absorb, the higher its ORAC score. Nutritionists recommend that we consume around 5,000 ORAC units per day to significantly impact antioxidant activity in the body and reduce free radical damage. To give you perspective, a half-cup serving of fruits or vegetables provides approximately 500 ORAC units. If you are not eating at least 10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day (preferably organically grown), you are not getting the recommended amount of ORAC units to neutralize free radical damage in your body every day. Taking into account the amounts and exposures to the many and varied sources of toxins in the world today, a better estimate of the required ORAC units would be 7000 ORACs per day.

Whole foods vs supplements

If you supplement with antioxidants in a single dose, or a combination of some isolated antioxidant nutrients, you are probably not getting the benefits you need. Weather isolated nutrients may have powerful antioxidant benefits in vitro (test tube), they have significantly less benefits in vivo (body). While food Rich in antioxidants have proven benefits both in humans and in vitro, it is known that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can help prevent cancers, coronary heart disease and stroke. Synthetic Antioxidants May Increase Cancer Risk. In fact, every large clinical trial that you have used isolated Antioxidant nutrients have not shown benefits for cancer and cardiovascular disease. Most isolated antioxidant nutrients are chemically and structurally different from those found in real foods; and they do not have the desired effect on the human body. Research has found that whole tomato powder, but not lycopene, a carotenoid found in tomatoes, inhibits prostate carcinogenesis in rats, demonstrating the superior functionality and efficacy of whole food nutrition compared to high dose isolated nutrient supplementation.

What is a superfood?

A superfood is a type of food that is believed to have more important health benefits than any other type of food due to its specific phytonutrient content. For example, blueberries are considered a superfood because they contain significant amounts of antioxidants, phytoflavinoids, vitamin C, and potassium, which are believed to provide significant health benefits.

How to get your daily requirement of 5000-7000 ORAC units

You can eat the recommended 2-3 servings of fruits and 5-7 servings of vegetables a day, choosing high-quality, organically grown fruits and vegetables.

You can choose a blend of certified organic whole superfoods, providing a broad spectrum of nutritional and antioxidant benefits and preferably in powder form. For example, a blend such as: Certified Organic Raw Raw Cocoa Powder, Dried Coffee Fruit Extract, Certified Organic Freeze Dried Pomegranate Powder; Certified Organic Freeze Dried Goji Berry Powder, Certified Organic Freeze Dried Acai Berry Powder, Certified Organic Whole Dried Dunaliella Marine Microalgae Saline, Certified Organic Freeze Dried Cranberry Powder, Certified Organic Freeze Dried Raspberry Powder, Certified Organic Freeze Dried Strawberry Powder Extract Certified Organic Freeze Dried Olive Juice. A blend like this provides all of the nutritional and antioxidant benefits of each whole food along with the benefits of all of the whole foods together. A serving of such a mix would provide the recommended daily ORAC requirements.

What form of mixed superfood should I consume?

Without a doubt, you should be looking for a powdered form where the superfoods in it have been freeze-dried, thus putting the nutrition and antioxidants in suspended animation, without damage. Adding the powder to your own liquid (water, juice, soy milk, etc.) makes for a quick and easy fortifying drink.

You should pay attention to how the superfood was processed (freeze-dried) and the quality of the superfoods contained in the powder (organic).

A useful feature would be the individual service packs instead of the large jar for easy portability.

Using career narratives to get a job

You will need to create many stories throughout your job search to showcase your knowledge, skills, and abilities. The first type of story you want to create is the professional narrative. This type of story tells the potential employer who you are at your core and reveals why you are unique compared to other candidates for the job. Some consider this to be their unique selling proposition. Done correctly, it will reflect your personality and value system to the interviewer.

The story you create for your career narrative can be about anything; But it generally involves a significant event, challenge, or obstacle you faced in a work environment that details how you overcame it and what lessons you learned. In the course of writing your story, you will gain a better understanding of who you are as a person. You will also be able to extract more stories from this experience that can be used during your job search that will highlight some of your other positive job characteristics and traits.

Keep in mind that you are not limited to creating a professional narrative. It’s best to create several that illustrate different aspects of your personality and accomplishments that you can choose from. When creating your story, it is important to be aware of the fact that the listener has the power to hire you based in part on the personal insights they receive after hearing the stories you tell.

Here are some tips to get the most out of your career narrative. First, keep it short so that you can easily remember and retell other people involved in the hiring decision. Second, link your past accomplishments to future career goals you have set for yourself. Third, don’t inflate your career narrative. It is important to be authentic, reciprocal and transparent when conveying your story to the interviewer. Keep practicing your story with friends and family until you start your presentation and appear both humble and personable.

6 useful accessories for your smartphone

From portable chargers to stay on for longer, extra lens for your phone’s camera, or a waterproof case, there are plenty of fun and practical accessories for smartphones. A well-chosen selection of accessories can increase the usability of your phone and make it do things that are not possible on its own. These are some of the best accessories:

Protective case

The latest high-end smartphone is not only beautiful, but also very expensive. A sturdy case is a worthwhile investment and easily protects your phone from minor bumps and knocks. The protective sleeve is available in many shapes and sizes. Some are designed to be tough and waterproof, while others are simply there to complement the design.

Portable Charger

High-resolution displays and massive feature lists mean that the modern smartphone is regularly running out of battery. A portable charger is a simple solution to keep your phone going while you are away from a charging point. Most are incredibly light and thin, but still have enough power to fully charge a depleted phone once or twice.

Bluetooth speakers

With the ability to store a large music library, the smartphone has many people as its primary music player. Therefore, to get the best possible sound quality, it can be beneficial to invest in a portable Bluetooth speaker. This not only provides clearer sound, but also allows you to share your favorite tracks with others. They’re ideal for the home or office, or the sturdier speakers are a practical option for the next outdoor adventure.

Car dock

A car dock is a useful addition to placing your smartphone in a vehicle. This is particularly useful for those who plan to make use of the built-in GPS technology in combination with a preferred navigation application. In addition, this means that there is no need to invest in a separate sat nav. They are available for virtually all smartphone makes or models.

Charging cable

A long charging cable is a practical and useful accessory. Most of the standard cables that come with a smartphone are quite short. This can make it inconvenient to leave it on a preferred nightstand or similar location while charging. But, there are many options for buying the longer cables that provide more flexibility when charging.

Camera lens

Most of the latest phones are designed with a pretty decent camera. But they are limited by the size of the small lens. However, it is possible to enhance the camera’s function by investing in a fisheye, telephoto, or wide-angle lens.

James Joyce – ‘A portrait of the artist when he was young’ Rebellion and liberation

James Joyce’s novel ‘A portrait of the artist when he was young’ is a ‘bildungsroman’, which deals with the development of its main character, Stephen Dedalus. Compared to the previous version of Joyce, ‘Stephen Hero’, we see that he has cut out all the strange material about other characters and presented an up-close and detailed account of Stephen’s character development from infancy to manhood, the ground previously covered. in ‘Stephen Hero’ it is compressed into chapter 5 of ‘A portrait of the artist when he was young’.

The most important aspects of Stephen’s early development occur internally, and Joyce brings us directly into his mind so that we can see the intellectual and emotional development unfolding behind the surface. The first chapter portrays Stephen as an individual alienated from his social environment and experiencing encounters with authorities that will reappear in various guises throughout the book. We see the beginnings of this process on the first page and a half, and the patterns of behavior and relationships shown here are repeated throughout the chapter. The opening section is almost a microcosm of the chapter and perhaps the entire novel.

Stephen has an intuitive drive toward rebellion. As a boy he plans to marry a Protestant girl from his neighborhood, and when his mother and Aunt Dante scold him for this, he defiantly hides under the table. This instinctual drive remains with him throughout the book, until, in the fifth and final chapter, he presents his defiant attitude in mature intellectual terms with his definitive statement beginning “I will not serve.”

The opening paragraphs, written in children’s language to reproduce Stephen’s experience at the time, represent one of Stephen’s earliest memories. It is a memory of a story that his father told him.

‘Once upon a time and in a very good moment, there was a moocow coming down the road and this moocow coming down the road met a cute little boy named Baby Tuckoo’

The story represents the image of the life that his father gives him: that Ireland, the church and the home are peaceful and abundant like a cow. The father says that the moocow “met a nice little boy”, meaning that Ireland and the church have a favorable disposition towards Stephen, and this is what Stephen believes at this stage.

In contrast to the benevolent world image presented by his father, Stephen is subject to threats, particularly from his aunt, Dante, against whom he has to take a defensive position.

He hid under the table. His mother said

Oh Stephen will apologize

Dante said.

Oh, if not, the eagle will come and gouge out his eyes.

Stephen’s first conscious step toward rebellion is taken at school when he confronts Principal Conmee to complain about his unjust punishment, an act that sets him apart from his peers. Here Esteban is portrayed as a martyr in the cause of justice.

Chapter 1 ends with Stephen feeling that he has succeeded in his cause of making the school admit its injustice, but in reality he has not succeeded. All Conmee will admit is that a mistake has been made, and when he suggests that it was largely Stephen’s fault for not telling Dolan about the letter he wrote to his parents, Stephen immediately agrees. In this way, Stephen has come back to accept the order and security of church / school authority, which, at this stage of his development, he needs.

Chapter 3 continues the theme of rebellion against authority and, as in Chapter 1, Stephen experiences a lot of fear. Authority is God and the Church, and fear is hell as punishment for sin. The general pattern from Chapter 1; Detachment and questioning are repeated, followed by a gesture of rebellion, followed by fear and acceptance of authority.

The chapter begins with Stephen going through experiences that the church identifies as capital sins. Esteban leads a double life, one as a young man visiting prostitutes and another as a prefect in the ‘Congregation of the Blessed Virgin Mary’. You are casually exploring the dilemma you are in, unconsciously pushing yourself toward a resolution of your conflicting needs.

Intellectually he can defy the petty logic of the church. This is not an attempt at rebellion, but rather an acceptance because you are arguing on the church grounds. But after the sermon on the horrors of hell, Stephen experiences excruciating terror. The only escape from the torments is an “apology”; confession and repentance.

God had promised to forgive him if he regretted it. He was sorry. . . Sorry! Sorry! Oh sorry! ‘

Hell in Chapter 3 is equivalent to the eagle in Chapter 1, and with these words Stephen apologizes, just as his mother and Dante said he would. He is not yet ready to risk eternal damnation for his acts of rebellion, as he is at the end of Chapter 5.

While Stephen thinks his acceptance of the church will be permanent, his motivation is purely emotional and his willpower is not involved. Your emotional state is transitory, and once your fear has subsided, you will no longer need church.

Throughout the book, each chapter ends with Stephen feeling himself on the threshold of a “new dawn,” and that the next chapter begins with a demonstration that the “new dawn” was largely self-deception. We see Stephen stumbling in his childhood through a series of painfully miscalculated but unavoidable steps. In the end, he may not reach full maturity, but he does achieve a degree of freedom from what he sees as the ‘nets’ launched by society and its authorities.

“When a man’s soul is born in this country, nets are thrown at him to prevent him from fleeing. You talk to me about nationality, language, religion. I will try to flee through those networks.

At the end of Chapter 4, in what is truly the climax of the novel, Stephen has a vision to become an artist. Joyce presents this view in a way that clearly associates it with the Icarus myth, and that shows that Stephen’s ideas have the usual mix of insight and misconceptions. Your ideal vision is associated with calm and beautiful images of the water. His real life from home and Dublin is associated with stagnant and dirty water. His dislike for Dublin manifests itself in many other ways, for example warped characters, static clocks, and the garbage trail, with the result that he finally calls Ireland “the old sow that eats her farrowing”.

In Chapter 5 we have a picture of the type of person Stephen has become by following him through a series of dialogues with his friends from college. These friends do not complete themselves as characters, but serve as a means of extracting Stephen’s ideas and challenging them for the benefit of the reader.

In the last of Stephen’s dialogues Stephen makes his hopes, doubts and ambitions clear. Here we have the clearest and most mature statement from Stephen in the entire novel.

“ I will not serve what I no longer believe in, whether it calls itself my home, my country, or my church; and I will try to express myself in some way of life for art as freely as I can and as completely as I can. I can, using for my defense the only weapons that I allow myself to use: silencing exile and cunning.

Choose silence, exile and cunning to counter language, nationality and religion. He has to go into exile from Ireland not only to avoid the ‘nets’, but also because of the hostility of the Irish people towards his artists.

No matter how much we may criticize Stephen for his prudishness, immaturity or coldness, we must admire his unwavering independence of spirit, as he has the unanswerable last word:

“And I’m not afraid to make a mistake, even a big mistake, a lifetime mistake, and maybe even eternity as well.”

Here, by including “eternity,” we see that although he claims that he no longer believes, he does not cease to firmly believe. It seems that the shadow of the eagle will haunt him forever.

How to perfect the style of the beast for Kiryu Kazuma? – Yakuza 0

You are playing as Kiryu Kazuma in Yakuza 0 for the PlayStation 4 (PS4). At one point, you will be introduced to Miss Tatsu in Chapter 2: The Realtor in the Shadows, another friend of Bacchus who he met at Theater Alley. She is the master of Beast Style, where you will unleash a yellowish aura in a fierce way, like a beast as they say.

What is Beast Style?

The “Mighty” fighting style that focuses on dealing heavy damage to your enemy. Your movements and attacks are slower than the Brawler and Rush styles. However, you are the master in the use of weapons, pressing square on nearby weapons, instinctively, the weapon swings towards the enemies around you.

Personally, for Beast Style, you can swing a nearby object against a large number of enemies. In one-on-one battles, such as boss fights, you can get close to the enemy at grappling distance (by pressing Circle) to perform Heat and powerslam moves.

Unfortunately, you have a speed disadvantage. Slower quick steps, pressing X, can be laborious while dodging fast attacks from the enemy, especially those from weapon carriers. The evasive roll is the best you can deal with bullets, punches and weapons.

How to perfect the beast style?

Upgrade your skills to deal more damage to enemies and boss battles. You will learn more from Miss Tatsu about the Beast Style movements at Tokyo Pier. You will have to pay for your session, which consists of Training and Jobs.

The workout contains “obstacle course” setups on the dock. You are given a time limit to smash, pressing square, on all mannequins that use boxes to achieve the goal. Each box contains a different value of money that you can win. You must pass ten training sessions.

Then you will unlock jobs after completing each training session. Your skills with the Beasts are put to the test when you come across Miss Tatsu’s Five Jobs assignments.

Domoto the fugitive

His first task is to eliminate Domoto, a man who has been on the run from debt collectors for 20 years. You will learn the Iron Fortitude skill as a reward.

Frowning gingoro

The next task is to eliminate the frowning Gingoro. He is the owner of a cosmetics company that fell behind in his payments to the Yakuza. You will learn the Crushing Hammer skill after completing this job.

Kinji the ancient Yakuza

Then a third tricky task. You will face Kinji, who wields a katana in his hands. After beating Kinji, you will acquire the Essence of the Beast: Heat Action with Wall Pin.

Hiroya, the King of Debt

Well, your last lesson is to eliminate Hiroya. After defeating the Giant Man, you will face Hiroya the Debt King at Tokyo Pier. Using Heat moves on Hiroya at the right time is best as he is quick to dodge your attacks. After defeating Hiroya, you will learn the Essence of the Beast: Invaded Heat Action.

Now that you have acquired all the Beast Style moves. Let’s put those skills on the streets of Kamurocho. Have a nice day!

The power of the first sentence of your novel

Here’s what happens (and I bet you do too): a book shows up at the bookstore. It may be the colors, an image on the spine, the name of an author or the title, but something catches your attention and you separate the book from the masses. You look at the front cover, flip it over, and read a few lines from the back cover copy. You open the book and read a little bit of the inside copy of the dust jacket, then you turn to the first page and …

You read the first line.

Which sucks, so you close the book and put it back on the shelves.

That is all. That’s how long you have to capture the interest of your readers today. If your first sentence does not capture a reader’s imagination, that reader moves on to the next novel.

Of course, if you’re John Grisham or Stephen King, readers will leave you a little slack and stick with you longer. You’ve already earned their trust in the past, so a bad first sentence is forgiven. But if you’re just starting out and looking to build an audience, that first sentence is your calling card. It’s your first, and often only, chance to make an impression.

So what makes a great first sentence?

Fortunately, you have a variety of options. The two main hooks for a powerful first sentence revolve around character or action. There are a handful of others. However, for the purposes of this article, we will focus on these two. Let’s take a look at the action first.

Action refers to movement. Tension, action, conflict … these are quite interchangeable terms. The point with an opening action sentence is to immediately grab the reader by the shoulders and shake him off. It’s like the first drop on a big roller coaster … there’s no going back because you have your reader’s full attention.

Here are some examples:

– The bomb exploded under the table at the corner table at Mindy’s Coffee Shop, where Judge Arnold Cummings ate breakfast every morning at exactly 8:35 a.m.

Sheila Hamilton desperately tugged on her kidneys but she had already lost control of Morgan in panic and it was clear that something bad was about to happen.

When the car rolled over the embankment, George Luther couldn’t help but wonder what else could go wrong today.

– A moment before lightning changed his life forever, Malcolm Zebrowski was celebrating his thirty-third birthday with a group of people he had never met before.

These samples immediately draw the reader into the movement of the story. Not only does your reader want to know what happens next, but in all likelihood, you’ve already had a number of questions begging for answers. For example, in our first sentence … was the bomb intended to kill the judge? If so, why? Who Placed the Bomb? What led up to this moment?

These are all legitimate questions that encourage your reader to keep reading. And that’s the point of a powerful first sentence … to hook the reader.

So let’s take a look at some character openings. These are based on character descriptions that create curiosity. Your reader finds this particular character so quirky or interesting that he just has to learn more. Here are some examples:

– Emily Bauer was tiny in stature, only 4′-11 “tall, but she feared no one and those who crossed her spent the rest of their days looking over her shoulders in dread.

– Max Ristow spent most of his life dealing with migraines, until the day he met his dead sister on a beach in Monterrey.

– Howard Duncan dragged his right leg when he walked, the result of an accident that killed his parents when he was six years old and left him with permanent nerve damage on the right side of his body.

– Some people called her holy, others sinners, but most considered Tammy Hathaway a woman of her word.

Curiosity. Wanting to know more. Wondering who this person is and how he ended up here. These are all pieces of the character puzzle that a strong opening phrase can set in motion.

So there you have it … two opening sentence strategies to make your novel irresistible to the casual reader. A good opening can be the great champion of your book. Give it the love and attention it deserves.

Belkin N600 Vs Netgear N600 Routers: Which One Suits Your Needs?

WNDR3400 Netgear N600 is one of the Netgear routers with a high performance category including WNDR3700, 37AV and 3300. WNDR37AV is likely to replace WNDr3700. Netgear’s high-performance routers are designed for fast download and smooth performance gaming.

Belkin is also introducing new Belkin N600 routers, including the Belkin Play N600 F7D8302 and F7D8301 Play N600 HD. Both Belkin N600 routers are new products. Both are equipped with a USB port to allow you to share storage or printer. Should you build a wireless network at home, between Wndr3400 Netgear N600 and Belkin N600 F7D8301 which is the best for your needs?

To build a wireless home network with your existing modem (either cable or ADSL), you need a wireless router to share your broadband Internet connection and other network resources, such as shared storage and printer. Before you have to decide which one is the best for your needs, you must first know its features. To cut long words short, the Belkin N600 F7D8301 HD is written as the Belkin N600 and the Netgear Wndr3400 N600 wireless router is written as the Netgear N600.

Wireless technology

Belkin and Netgear routers are powered by the latest 802.11n wireless technology with smart antenna MIMO technology for faster and longer range coverage. The routers also support simultaneous dual band frequencies of both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. Belkin uses dual plane antennas to provide great coverage in the home.

LAN and WAN interfaces

The Belkin N600 is equipped with Gigabit ports for high-speed data transfer. With the gigabit ports, you can play multiplayer games smoothly and responsively. Netgear N600 is equipped with 10 / 100Mbps Fast-Ethernet, not gigabit ports. This is fast enough for a normal wired connection to computers, but not fast enough for high-speed data transfer, video streaming, and multiplayer games.

USB port

Belkin N600 routers are integrated with two USB ports to allow you to share external storage and printer at the same time. The router supports USB hard drives formatted in FAT 16/32 and NTFS file systems.

Belkin also includes the Torrent Mate application to help you manage your torrent download to keep downloading even when your computer is off. The router also includes the Print Zone application to help you manage print jobs from any computer within the network wirelessly.

The Netgear N600 includes a USB port, but it is not designed for printer sharing. The port with its ReadySHARE technology is used to share access to USB storage that supports FAT16 / 32, NTFS read / write. If you need to share the printer within the network, you must add a print server. So if the printer is very important in your network, you’d better choose Belkin N600 routers.

Secure guest access

Belkin N600 supports a unique SSID for the name of your wireless network. But Netgear N600 supports multiple SSIDs. With multiple SSIDs, you can create a separate security limit for secure guest access. Secure access for multiple SSIDs or guests is ideal for offices where business partners / visitors frequently come to your office and require wireless Internet access from their laptops.

So if different security policies are required for different user groups, Netgear N600 is your router. Netgear N600 also includes free live parental controls for a clean internet. But for your home network, the Belkin N600 can be your router of choice with the ability to share storage and printer at the same time.

Other features between the Belkin N600 and Netgear N600 are almost the same, including WPA / WPA2 wireless security, NAT and SPI firewall, Quality of Service (QoS), and WMM (Wireless Multimedia) -based QoS.

Knowing the manufacturer’s specifications is very important in deciding to buy the router for your wireless network environment. The Belkin N600 router may be the best for your home needs, but it may not be appropriate for office environments.
