Indian guru into Norwegian anti-doping work

Monday, June 25, 2018

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has stopped wars. Now he wants to help Antidoping Norway.

There is an aura of spirituality over the Nobel Suite at the Grand Hotel when Nettavisen meets the Indian guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, or Sri Sri, whom he is usually called.

He is in Norway to speak during the anti-doping conference at the Grand Hotel.

Sri Sri is the founder and leader of the Humanitarian Organization, the Art of Living Foundation, which has millions of followers in more than 150 countries – including Norway. He is one of India’s most powerful people.

A global spiritual leader and teacher, but also a peacekeeper. He was central in creating peace between Colombia and the FARC guerrillas, and among other things learned the FARC soldiers meditation.

– Outstanding ability

In Norway he is speaking for the World Forum for Ethics in Business. It was through this forum he met former chairman Inge Andersen of Norway’s sports federation, which arranges the conference.

“I have known him for two years and it has been a great learning process. He has an outstanding ability to see the global image while being at the retail level. I have never met a person who communicates such complicated messages so easily and he hits all community groups. He talks as easily with stunt leaders like the man and the woman in the grindstones, says Andersen.

– Perhaps the biggest in our time

Andersen also points out that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has a unique position in the world, which means he can contribute a lot in anti-doping work.

– Sri Sri has a strong position in countries facing corruption problems in both South America, Eastern Europe and Asia. He talks with all world leaders. As a peacekeeper and humanitarian leader, he is perhaps the greatest in our time, he says.

My comment on this is:

We have become so de-Christianized that we now have false prophets whom we worship. It’s the devil’s work this. The more we turn away from Jesus, the more the devil likes it. The false spirituality is luminous just like the devil, after all, he was the light bearer of God before he was thrown out of heaven. When a basic pillar is taken away in society, it will automatically enter a new substitute.

We have Islam and New Age as false prophets. Yoga and other alternative beliefs are also fake. It is only through Jesus that you come to heaven, through the forgiveness of sin and the fortification of Jesus as Savior. Everything else is a sin!

Wrote “The little house on the prairie”. Now her name is removed from book price

Changes the name of the book price after the racism debate.

The children’s writer Laura Ingalls Wilder is best known for the classical children’s books in the series “The Little House on the Prairie”. The grand children’s award “Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal” is also named after her and has been distributed by the American Library Association since 1954.

This weekend it became clear that this year’s prize is the last one to be awarded with this name. After a vote in the American Library Association, it became apparent that the prize changed its name to the Children’s Literature Legacy Award, writes Washington Post.

The reason is concern about how Wilder, who lived from 1867 to 1957, portrayed Americans with African background, and American indigenous people.

– Incompatible with the core values

The organization stated that Wilder “uses expressions of stereotypical attitudes incompatible with ALSC core values”. They further stated that Wilder’s books are still published and read, but that “her inheritance is complex” and “not universally embraced”.

According to The Guardian, the books contain a number of phrases that are unacceptable today.

Wilder should also have apologized for his thoughtlessness, “according to The Guardian, and changed a sentence in one of the books in” The Little House on the Prairie “series, which said that in Kansas there was no people Indians. ” The sentence was changed to “no new settlers, only Indians”.

Wilder was the first writer to receive the award in 1954. The award of the year went to author Jacqueline Woodson.

Trumps Twitter messages have changed in recent weeks

Monday, June 25, 2018

Donald Trump has twittered 257 times so far this month. The messages are getting more and more bizarre.

The fact that Donald Trump’s messages on Twitter raise awareness are far from new. Ever since he was elected president, critics have targeted the smooth flow of outbreaks and controversial comments. But in recent times there has been a development, CNN writes.

The news channel claims that the activity on Trump’s Twitter account has escalated and become more and more strange. The president has shown himself from his controversial page several times earlier, including threatening nuclear war against North Korea.

Political reporter in CNN, Chris Cillizza, has been following a lot on Trump. Now he has analyzed recent updates.

Strange times

The CNN reporter now claims that Trump not only tweets more than before, but also makes it bizarre times of the day. In addition, in his posts he focuses much on the ongoing investigation of himself and the election, led by Robert Mueller.

Of the 22 Twitter messages Trump posted on Sunday, eight of them investigated the investigation and how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton investigation. Six of them were accusations against the democrats.

The Trump archive reveals

On the website “trump Twitter archive” you can see all the Twitter messages the president has posted since 2009. There are also statistics about how many messages are posted and what they are about.

According to the website, the president tweeted 140 times in May last year. The same month in 2018, he twisted 237 times. So far in June, the president has tweeted 257 messages.

Sindre Beyer, adviser to Try Advertising Agency and former information director for the Labor Party, told Dagbladet that the president’s way of communicating breaks with most other politicians.

“He is confrontational and it is unfamiliar with people who have as much authority as the Trump has and who goes to personal attacks like he does. Not only was there a heated election campaign on the Twitter front, but it also continued after he entered the office; It’s a bit scary. The world does not need a higher conflict level, but it contributes to Trump, says Beyer.

– A whole new communication

The counselor thinks Trump deliberately tries to weaken the media and undermine their credibility – which, according to Beyer, he partly succeeds in. It is also former state secretary of Erna Solberg, now consultant at First House, Sigbjørn Aanes, agreed to.

“What we see is a brand new communication from a US leader. There are strong words and little nuances that he brings. Many are scared of the way he is on, and the tone he has, says Aanes.

Success despite criticism

Despite being both criticized and controversial, he believes Trump has succeeded in helping to manage the agenda as he wants, because many run after when he pronounces.

“But I would like to say that he gets less impact politically. He is not keen to build alliances, thus gaining more resistance and less support while weakening his own impetus in political cooperation, says the consultant, who believes everyone today must master social media.

“But the challenge when it comes to Trump is how he communicates and rhetoric,” said Aanes.

Labor Party(Ap) will forbid unvaccinatinated children to travel

Monday, June 25, 2018

The Labor Party wants the government to investigate travel ban for disease-induced countries for families where the children have not taken the MMR vaccine.

– Protecting from illness is something children are entitled to under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. That consideration must go before the parents’ view of vaccination, “says Oslo’s health agency, Tone Tellevik Dahl (Ap), to Dagbladet.

The party also proposes to allow municipalities who wish to introduce a mandatory vaccination notice for children under the age of 16, and Dahl believes Oslo should be the first municipality.

State Secretary Line Miriam Sandberg (Frp) in the Ministry of Health and Care Services believes there is no reason to change today’s order.
– Local prohibition will have no effect. If someone does not want to vaccinate the children, they can only move.

She also believes that a departure ban is drastic and that it will be difficult to lift, partly due to inter-landings.

All Norwegian children receive an MMR vaccine, which protects against measles, red dogs and other illnesses. The MMR vaccine is normally given at the age of 15 months and is repeated in the 6th grade at primary school.

Figures from the National Institute of Public Health show that 96 per cent of the two-year-olds in Oslo have been vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, poliomyelitis, HiB infection and measles. In addition, the figures show that 97 per cent of 16 year-olds received one dose of the MMR vaccine, while 92 per cent had received both doses.
