Re: Re: Re: Is the threat to Israel different today?
I find it difficult to differentiate much from today or yesterday's threat. I hope that the leadership of Iran is somewhat out of touch with most in Iran, but I do believe that the poverty of the middle east Muslims in general is a basic reason for the ability to engender hate for the US and Israel. We buy their oil, the money is spent, but it never reaches the people. It's reality to see the Arab states (Saudi Arabia, Emirates, etc) where the money is spent on the people and the level of living is higher - there is little animosity towards the outer world. I think there is envy on the part of the Palestinians when they see the relative wealth of the Israeli increasing in comparison with their own wealth.
The ability to speak clearly, succinctly, and powerfully is easier than you think
The ability to communicate effectively can make or break a person's assessment of your intelligence, competence, and authenticity.
The results come from a 15-year study that used ultrasound scans to track blood vessels in middle-aged adults starting in 2002.
- The study measured the stiffness of blood vessels in middle-aged patients over time.
- Stiff blood vessels can lead to the destruction of delicate blood vessels in the brain, which can contribute to cognitive decline.
- The scans could someday become a widely used tool to identify people at high risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer's.
What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.
When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
