John Oliver Nails it…

RS-20140923-JohnOliver… in his Rolling Stone cover feature (October 9th, 2014 issue, p.41):

Digging into bleak corners of the American experience – payday loans, income inequality, the prison system – isn’t exactly leavening Oliver’s natural pessimism. “The more in-depth we go to things here, the darker you start to feel about it,” he says. “When you start following the money in politics, that’s where you start to think, ‘Holy shit, is this thing broken beyond repair?’ When we started looking at stories, even the Dr. Oz dietary-supplement stuff – you start to see how corrupted, at root, things have become. And the fact that there’s this revolving door – that 50 percent of the people that leave the Senate go straight to lobbying positions, that one statistic alone is a dead canary in a coal mine. That is not good. There is something profoundly wrong at the heart of American politics.”

If you haven’t been watching Oliver’s HBO series, Last Week Tonight, I really can’t recommend it enough. It is absolutely superb. Here are a couple of sample clips for you to check out…

  4. There are many shops, salons and spas offering non surgical replacement systems in Lahore.
    Non surgical system is commonly called Wig. It is modified form of hairpiece which is temporary solution for baldness .
    There are certain inconveniences due to these wigs. It is permanent source of expenditure because every month one has to spend for its maintenance. The unit has specific duration
    like one to two years and then you have to buy new unit. When we calculate non surgical hair replacement system for 4 to 5 years, the cost of surgical Hair transplant in Lahore is much cheaper as compared to these artificial wigs or systems. The wig gives unnatural look and easily recognized and becomes source of embarrassment in public places.

  5. The Pastoral Leadership Intensive is a unique and innovative program that has been designed to provide personal andprofessional growth experiences for leaders and potential leaders. The program design includes the combination of small group sharing, classroom lectures,videos and one-on-one spiritual direction. The program goal is to provide each participant with a pastoral leadership assessment with professional applications that will empower and renew each pastoral leader so that they can return to their
    pastoral work renewed and invigorated.

    Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.
    In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward. To do this they create an inspiring vision,
    and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision. They also manage delivery of the vision,either directly or indirectly, and build and coach their teams to make them ever stronger.Effective leadership is about all of this – and it's exciting to be part of this journey!
