Ron Hubbard began his study of the mind in 1923. Through his extensive travels, study of many cultures around the world and scientific research, he developed and tested man’s first fully workable technology of the mind.In 1950, Mr. Hubbard wrote Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, a comprehensive work detailing his discoveries and techniques and the first and only definitive manual of the mind.Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health became a nationwide bestseller almost overnight. By late summer, 1950, people across the country were not only reading the book, but were also organizing groups for the purpose of applying Dianetics techniques. The book has remained a bestseller ever since, becoming number one on The New York Times bestseller list almost four decades after its initial publication. It continues to appear on bestseller lists around the world.The word Dianetics comes from the Greek dia, meaning “through” and nous, meaning “soul”, and is defined as “what the soul is doing to the body.”Dianetics is a methodology which can help alleviate unwanted sensations and emotions, irrational fears and psychosomatic illnesses (illnesses caused or aggravated by mental stress). It is most accurately described as what the soul is doing to the body through the mind.The mind is basically a communication and control system between the person and his environment. It is composed of mental image pictures, which are recordings of past experiences. The individual uses his mind to pose and solve problems related to survival and to direct his efforts according to these solutions.The reactive mind is the portion of a person’s mind which works on a totally stimulus-response basis, which is not under his volitional (willing) control, and which exerts force and the power of command over his awareness, purposes, thoughts, body and actions.Dianetics technology guides a person through his or her reactive mind to locate – and permanently eradicate – the actual source of the upset. With the cause of the upset handled, the person is once more able to live a happy, healthy life.Although Dianetics technology was discovered by L. Ron Hubbard, he wrote: “Acknowledgment is made to fifty thousand years of thinking men without whose speculations and observations the creation and construction of Dianetics would not have been possible. Credit in particular is due to:“Anaxagoras, Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Euclid, Lucretius, Roger Bacon, Francis Bacon, Isaac Newton, van Leeuwenhoek, Voltaire, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, René Descartes, James Clerk Maxwell, Charcot, Herbert Spencer, William James, Sigmund Freud, Cmdr. Thompson (MC) USN, William A. White, Will Durant, Count Alfred Korzybski, and my instructors in atomic and molecular phenomena, mathematics and the humanities at George Washington University and at Princeton.”Dianetics is a precise subject and its principles are very easy to grasp and easy to apply. If you are reasonably intelligent you’ll have no trouble at all understanding Dianetics or learning to apply it.Dianetics technology can take you on the greatest adventure of your life, a voyage into your mind and the discovery of your true potentials.Dianetics can help you understand your mind, what it is composed of and how it works. You’ll discover how the reactive mind influences your life.By applying Dianetics technology you can get rid of your reactive mind.Different people experience different benefits from Dianetics technology. Some of the benefits Dianetics users report include:• Increased energy level• Improved perceptions• Increased happiness• Less accidents• Reduction in stress and anxiety• Higher Intelligence• Faster reaction timeChurch of Scientology Pasadena, 35 S.

Sudafrikas Wetter und Klima

first_imgEin subtropischer Standort, vom Ozean von drei Seiten des Landes und der Hohe des inneren Plateaus gestaltet, sind fur warmen Temperaturen und Bedingungen von Sudafrika verantwortlich, die so typisch sind – und so beliebt bei auslandischen Besuchern.Sudafrika ist fur seinen Sonnenschein beruhmt. Es ist ein relativ trockenes Land mit einem durchschnittlichen jahrlichen Niederschlagsmenge von (mit einem Weltdurchschnitt von etwa 860 mm verglichen) etwa 464 mm. Wahrend das Westkap im Winter den meisten Regen abbekommt, ist der Rest des Landes im allgemeinen ein Sommer-Regen Gebiet.Gleichzeitig tendieren die Temperaturen in Sudafrika dazu, hauptsachlich aufgrund der hoheren Erhebung uber dem Meeresspiegel, niedriger zu sein als in anderen Landern auf ahnlichen Breitengraden – wie z.B. Australien.Auf dem inneren Plateau halt die Hohe – Johannesburg liegt bei 1.694 Metern – die durchschnittlichen Sommertemperaturen unterhalb 30°C. Im Winter konnen nachtliche Temperaturen aus demselben Grund bis zum Gefrierpunkt, an einigen Stellen sogar darunter, fallen.Sudafrikas Kustenregionen sind im Winter deshalb am warmsten. Es gibt jedoch einen erheblichen Kontrast zwischen den Temperaturen der ostlichen und westlichen Kusten den Landes, respektive aufgrund der warmen Agulhastrome und der kalten Benguelastrome, die and den Kustenlinien entlangschiessen.In der sudlichen Hemisphare sind unsere Jahreszeiten entgegengesetzt zu denen Europas und Nordamerikas; und ja, wir verbringen tatsachlich Weihnachten am Strand.SommerIn den meisten Teilen Sudafrikas ist der Sommer (Mitte Oktober bis Mitte Februar) von heißem, sonnigem Wetter mit haufigen Nachmittagsgewittern charakterisiert, die schnell aufklaren und einen warmen, erdigen, eindeutig afrikanischen Geruch in der Luft hinterlassen.Das Westkap bildet mit seinem Mittelmeerklima die Ausnahme, hier regnet es im Winter.HerbstDer Herbst (Mitte Februar bis April) bietet in Sudafrika auf eine Art das beste Wetter. Es fallt sehr wenig Regen im ganzen Land und es ist warm, aber nicht zu heiß, wobei es mit fortschreitender Jahreszeit kalter wird.In Kapstadt ist der Herbst mit heißen sonnigen Tagen und warmen, laue Nachten, die viele Leute in Cafes im Freien verbringen, phantastisch.WinterDer Winter in Sudafrika (Mai bis Juli) ist in den hoher gelegenen Bereiche des inneren Plateaus charakterisiert von Trockenheit, sonnigen frischen Tagen und kalten Nachten. Also ist es eine gute Idee, warme Kleidung mitzubringen.Sowohl die heiße, schwule KwaZulu Kuste, wie auch das Lowveld (tiefer liegende Gebiete) der Mpumalanga und Limpopo Provinzen, bieten phantastisches Winterwetter mit sonnigen, leicht warmeren Tagen und praktisch ohne Wind oder Regen.Das Westkap bekommt im Winter den meisten Regen mit ziemlich viele Tagen des bedeckten, regnerischen Wetters ab. Jedoch wird diese Zeite immer wieder von wunderbaren Tagen unterbrochen, die sich mit den Besten eines britischen Sommers messen konnen.In den hohen Bergen des Kaps und auf dem Drakensberg in KwaZulu Natal schneit es im Winter normalerweise.FruhlingNirgends in Sudafrika ist der Fruhling (August bis Mitte Oktober) spektakularer als in den Provinzen des Kaps. Hier ist der graue Winter vergessen, wenn tausend kleine, sonst unscheinbare Pflanzen die Ebenen mit einem schillernden Blumenteppich bedecken.Viele Sudafrikaner begeben sich auf eine alljahliche Wallfahrt, um die Blumen vom Namaqualand am West- und Nordkap zu sehen.Wann ist die beste Jahreszeit zum Reisen?Es kommt darauf an, was Sie tun mochten. Die Blumen sind offensichtlich am schonsten im August und im September. Die beste Zeit zur Wildbeobachtung ist im spaten Fruhjahr (September und Oktober). Die richtigen Wale aus dem Suden treiben von Mitte Juni bis Ende Oktober an unsere Kusten herum.Tauchen tut man in weiten Teilen des Landes am besten jenseits der Sommermonage (d.h. von April bis Ende September) und das gleiche gilt fur das Surfen – aber das beschrankt diese beiden Aktivitaten bestimmt nicht auf jene Zeiten.Flussrafting ist besser am Kap gegen Ende des Winters und in KwaZulu Natal in der Hohe des Sommers (Spatnovember bis Mitte Februar). In Mpumalanga und Limpopo ist es weniger jahreszeitabhangig.Die “Schulter”-Jahreszeiten – Fruhjahr und Herbst – sind am besten geeignet fur Wandern, weil der Sommer in großen Teilen des Landes heiß sein kann. Am Drakensberg sind Sommergewitter gefahrlich, wahrend es im Winter gute Chancen auf Schnee gibt. Am Kap sind die Winter nass und das Wandern somit gelegentlich knallhart.Fur den Fall, dass Sie Vogelliebhaber sind: die palaoarktischen Zugvogel kommen um den November herum und die innerafrikanischen Zugvogel normalerweise bis Mitte Oktober an.Wenn Sie naturlich lieber an den Stranden herumfaulenzen wollen, ist der Hochsommer die beste Zeit – obwohl dann auch alle anderen dort sind. Und – großer Bonus – die Strande von NordkwaZulu Natal sind sogar Mitte Winter warm und sonnig.SAinfo reporter, mit Material von South African Tourismlast_img read more

Atlanta Hawks Thabo Sefolosha Awarded 4M In Police Scuffle

Thabo Sefolosha will wrap his Atlanta Hawks career with a lawsuit settlement.(Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images Sport/Getty Images)Atlanta Hawks’ forward Thabo Sefolosha will get a $4-million settlement in a police-brutality suit he filed against the NYPD that he said broke his leg and left him unable to finish the NBA season in 2015.“This settlement is not a concession that Mr. Sefolosha was blameless in this matter and there was no admission of liability by the defendants,” the city law department said in a statement to the New York Daily News. “But, in light of the gravity of his injuries, the potential impact on his career as a professional athlete and the challenge for a jury in sorting out the facts in this incident, the resolution of the case was in the best interests of the city.”The $4-million payout is a fraction of the $50 million Sefolosha originally sought from the New York City Police Department and the city it serves in October 2015.As previously reported, police maintained they had been close to Manhattan, N.Y.’s 1Oak nightclub in April 2015 addressing the stabbing of now-Turkish Basketball Super League player Chris Copeland. The cops claimed Sefolosha questioned their authority, adding they were simply trying to keep him out of the area. Sefolosha said he handed a homeless man money near the club when officers pulled him to the ground, arresting Sefolosha and breaking his leg. Former Hawks teammate Pero Antic had accompanied Sefolosha to the club and also was arrested.Sefolosha, whose suit also pointed to a “racial matter” regarding the hoodie he wore at the time of his arrest, testified that he referred to NYPD Officer Jean Paul Giacona as “a midget,” according to NYDN, before he was dragged to the ground. The act of police brutality injured the 6-foot-6 baller’s leg and could have ended his NBA career, his lawsuit said.Charges against Sefolosha stemming from the incident, including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, were dismissed in October 2015.The 2016-2017 NBA season will be Sefolosha’s last as a Hawk as his three-year, $12-million deal comes to a close, Yahoo reported. He will become a free agent this summer, while Antic, who also sued the city over the scuffle, is playing for the Turkish Basketball Super League. Antic’s federal lawsuit over the incident is pending. read more
