http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/2802.jpgThere are women who are unlucky in their love life. They are usually women at age 30 and over. One can divide them into several groups for convenience.

A woman who understands everything
She really understands all his problems that his wife never understands. She even accepts the fact that he cannot divorce his wife. This understanding can last for years. She understands that she should not ask unnecessary questions or cause problems to a man. That is to be always ready, for example, to take a day off work if he suddenly finds some time off his wife, children and work. Usually, he has a low-paid job, that is why his ever-understanding woman has to give him good trousers for his birthday, a jacket for his child or face powder for his wife.

She fully understands that he cannot go on holidays with her. She understands that he has to visit his terminally ill mother-in-law with his gravely ill wife and a child with psychological problems. She also has a proper understanding of his coming and going with a suitcase.

Some time later she decides to break up with him for good. But he turns up with a bouquet of mimosas and whispers a magic spell: “You understand everything, don’t you?” This phrase mesmerizes her and she keeps on understanding everything for many years of their hopeless relations. When her age enables her to understand him no longer, she is left alone without any understanding in her home.

A woman who does not want to get married at all
As a matter of fact, she does. But she keeps on repeating that she does not. For some reason that she cannot explain herself, this type of woman is certain that marriage is a form of legalised prostitution. In addition, she thinks that dropping a pair of men’s socks in a washing machine is backbreaking work for a woman. Is it for feminists?

She does not perceive striking differences, but she suspects that something is amiss. She feels rather lonely, especially at nights when the wind is blowing outdoors and maybe a pair of not very dirty socks is not so execrable. Nevertheless, she fights off these treacherous thoughts and any sign of her weakness. “Why do I need a man? I earn a living myself. Moreover, I can’t stand somebody walking back and forth before my eyes.” These are her typical thoughts.

At the same time, if the Ox needs to accomplish his goal, he will do it at all costs, even if he has to use destructive force for it. The colors of the year 2009 are red, which adds more aggression, and yellow, which requires distinction. In other words, the Year of the Ox is going to be a contradictory year balancing between conservatism, novelty and aggression.
Astrologist Denis Verbitsky believes that the Year of the Ox will continue the tendencies of the Year of the Rat – pragmatism and utility. The first half of the year will fall under the influence of the opposition between Saturn and Uranus. The opposition of the two planets will lead to conflicts between conservative and new ideas. One has to be prepared for deceit and fraud and thus be careful about everything.

The Year of the Ox is going to be a rather complicated time period for Russia . It will become obvious by the middle of the year that the country does not have any special reserves to support its economy. Russia will have to return to the experience of the year 2004 to extricate from the crisis.

The nature of the Ox suggests a way out of the situation: one has to work hard and not hope for great success. Russia has had a taste of careless life, but it must not follow illusions now: the sad experience of the 1990s can become reality again.

The Ox embodies prosperity and family happiness. That is why, the majority of the Chinese joined their families for New Year festivities. All the Chinese believe that the Year of the Ox will bring them only good, for the Year of the Rat was quite a difficult experience for the nation: the mammoth earthquake that struck China’s Sichuan Province, the Tibet unrest, the milk powder scandal, heavy snowfalls and anti-Chinese statements during the Olympic flame marathon. The Chinese economy suffered considerable damage because of the global economic crisis: many factories were closed due to low demand on their products.

China will go on national holidays from January 26 to February 1. Millions and millions of Chinese will travel to see their relatives and friends, creating the biggest human migration in the world.
http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/2601.jpgIt is a mystery, but our souls, our very persons, existed before conception. God is not creating new souls for a new body every time at conception , as many believe. God's creative works, at least as a rule, were finished on the Seventh Day of creation week as recorded in Genesis. Everything that exists now, body as well as soul, existed in some form since that day. After creation week, the Bible says that God "rested" (or ceased) from anymore creative activity. Thus, we literally existed in some form from the time of Adam for we were all in Adam.
Reproductive cells (i.e. sperm and ovum) come from somatic cells. That means we must have existed in the somatic cells of our parents' bodies at some point. I admit, this is a great mystery. Does this mean we commit murder when we intentionally or unintentionally destroy the somatic cells of our body. Are we committing murder if we destroy somatic cells by scratching our nose? No. For God has not given humans the right to independent life until conception for that is the means by which He has sanctioned for bringing independent human life into the world.

What if we should clone a human being? Cloning is wrong. That is not how God intended humans to come into the world, but successful human cloning would be proof that the soul exists before and apart from conception. The soul may also be physical (perhaps a form of energy) but distinct from the rest of the body. Nevertheless, if we should ever succeed in cloning a human being then that human life also has equal right to become independent since the process towards full maturity has begun. This is why abortion is wrong morally, and abortion also should be wrong legally because the unborn baby's right to life outweighs a woman's right of privacy. To kill someone else whom God has given an inalienable right to life should never be a personal choice and definitely should not be supported by public or federal funds.
Drinking coffee may do more than just keep you awake. A new study suggests an intriguing potential link to mental health later in life, as well.

A team of Swedish and Danish researchers tracked coffee consumption in a group of 1,409 middle-age men and women for an average of 21 years. During that time, 61 participants developed dementia, 48 with Alzheimer’s disease.

After controlling for numerous socioeconomic and health factors, including high cholesterol and high blood pressure, the scientists found that the subjects who had reported drinking three to five cups of coffee daily were 65 percent less likely to have developed dementia, compared with those who drank two cups or less. People who drank more than five cups a day also were at reduced risk of dementia, the researchers said, but there were not enough people in this group to draw statistically significant conclusions.
http://www.freeintertv.com/news_pic/2401.jpgWorld markets took a break for Christmas and New Year time. However, a new portion of economic rumors compensated the absence of important macroeconomic news. Experts say that the United States will manage to extricate from the financial crisis with a whole skin despite the nation’s enormous foreign debt.
The US state debt has become $10 trillion larger under George W. Bush’s rule. “The debt amounted to $4 trillion in 2001, and now it is evaluated at some $14 trillion,” an analyst with Ricom Trust Investment Company, Oleg Abelev told Bigness.ru.

“It is obvious that it is impossible to repay such a large debt. The rumors about a new issue of 100-year bonds of the US government prove that. Virtually, it will be an attempt to lay the burden of the debt on the shoulders of new generations,” PR Director of Kalita Finance Financial Group, Aleksei Vyazovsky said.

It would be an unexampled step for the USA to make: state-guaranteed debt securities with such a long circulation period have never been issued before. However, Walt Disney Co. issued 100-year bonds in 1993. Ford Motor Co. sold $500 million of 100-year bonds in 1997: the whole issue was sold in only 25 minutes.

The securities market serves as the main source to cover the budget deficit in modern-day economy. The majority of developed countries hold their state debts in the form of securities. State-guaranteed securities make over 99 percent of the debt of the US federal government.

“To issue 100-year bonds seems to be one of the easiest ways to solve the problem of the US budget deficit, which currently amounts to over $450 billion and has all chances to overcome the level of $1 trillion next year,” analyst with Euro Finance Investment Company, Svetlana Mitrofanova, told Bigness.ru.
