HOWEVER, I do hold a negative view of what I call “diversity without assimilation”. Immigrants come here for a better life, because the United States of America is BETTER. Western values are BETTER. Leaders confront organizations rather than build or serve them. Thus, to speak of the CEOs of business firms, the presidents of labor unions, the directors of governmental agencies, and the commanders of conventional military units as leaders is absurd. They are not and could not be.
Imagine the possibilities The ruby slippers, a powerful symbolic tool that represents our inner strength and our persistent ability to overcome the turmoil and damage of even the most tornadic experiences in our lives. What a lovely and charming image to visualize ourselves wearing these amazing slippers that just exude power, strength, and dynamic spiritual intuition. (And for the gentlemen out there, maybe we can feel the power of the shoes symbolically with a pair of glow green Nike’s instead?) Remember the image of the witch trying to take the shoes away Yikes! Keep that shocking image in mind when your thoughts about yourself degrade your image in any way, with fear, doubt, embarrassment, guilt, shame, unworthiness.
The Human Genome Project has mapped our entire genetic code; we are genetically modifying plants and animals, finding genetic cures for diseases. There is no doubt that our investigation of what was called the coding region of DNA has revolutionized science and the world. But the coding part of DNA makes up less than 5% of our entire genome.
Seventeen teams qualified for the contest, and the highest scoring groups will move on to the DARPA Robotics Finals next year. As robots battled through each phase of the Trials, LiveScience sat down with DARPA director Arati Prabhakar to talk about the competition, the future of robotics, and how robots relate to national defense.

In On the Vanguard, Daniel takes his love for history, mixes in key points from people in the Bible, and then adds in a touch of his own personal life lessons. What did it take for men and women of both history and of the Bible to become people of strength, people of tenacity, and people who refused to be defeated? Moreover, what will it take for you to join the ranks of these people? The term Vanguard means those who fought on the front lines in war. You are called to stand on the vanguard of life, but how can you stand if you have either nothing to stand for, or continue to hold the wrong stance? This book is meant to challenge the reader in the proper posture of their standing.
