The touching story of one woman’s journey of joy and sorrow and why Valentine’s Day holds a special place in her heart.

My husband Matt and I met during college. Ours was a love affair for the ages. We met during my sophomore/his junior year at a football party. We quickly became the it couple on campus, and seemed to not be subject to the many squabbles and frequent breakups of many of our friends. He proposed to me just after he graduated, and we married the day after my graduation the following May.

Emily was our honeymoon baby. Even more appropriate, she was born on Valentines Day itself. Our families teased us mercilesslynot only were we the perfect couple, but we became pregnant immediately to a baby born on Valentines Day. It seemed to be fate.

We called Emily our Golden Child. She was bounding with joy and seemed to just emanate it from her pores. While I probably am biased as her mother, I thought she was the most beautiful creature ever created. She had dark gold curls that never seemed to do what I wanted to coax them to do, and her fathers chocolate brown eyes with a very faint golden rim. She was truly breathtaking.

We always wanted more children, but didnt seem to fall pregnant as easily as we had before. However, we were content with our Emily. Until the May just after Emily turned 4. It was the day before Matts and my anniversary, and Emily and I were running errands. I was admittedly in a hurry, trying to get everything done before our scheduled 5th anniversary vacation in three short days. I was harried. Emily sensed that and was restless herself. I became cross with her. To try to distract her, I reached into the back set to turn up the music on her toy I never saw the truck coming.

I woke up four days later in the hospital. Everything from those next few days is still fairly fuzzy, but I remember the moment when Matt told me that Emily didnt survive the crash. All I could think about was the last words she heard from me. I crossly asked her to be quiet for just five minutes.

I slowly recovered from my own numerous injuries. Matt was amazingly supportive, but things obviously werent the same as before. Our Golden Child was gone.

Her birthday was approaching, and I wasnt sure how I was going to make it through. To make matters worse, Matts company was sending him to Zurich, Switzerland, for the 10 days preceding Valentines Day for a special conference. I dont think I ever felt so alone as I did those 10 days.

When Matt landed in New York on Valentines Day, Emilys birthday, he called to confirm that I would be at the airport to pick him up from his connecting flight. He told me that he had a special Valentines gift for me. I told him that I wasnt in a Valentines sort of mood, but he insisted that this would help.

Things seemed infinitely better when I saw Matt coming off the plane. He gave me a giant hug, and then we grabbed his luggage and headed home. When we got home, he sat me down and gave me a small wrapped box. He told me that he hadnt planned on getting me anything for Valentines this year since it was so painful for us both, but he saw these in Zurich and knew that he had to bring them to me.

I unwrapped the box, and saw a brand name that was unfamiliar to me — DeLafe. I wasnt sure what to expect, but opened the box quizzically. Inside were beautiful chocolates sprinkled with gold. I immediately began to smile and cry at the same time a box of chocolates from our Golden Child. Matt urged me to taste one, and the rich chocolate seemed to explode on my tongue, I had never tasted anything like that in my entire life.

Each Valentines Day gets a little easier. We now have a little boy, Ethan. And each Valentines Day, Matt gets me a box of DeLafe chocolate pralines. These chocolates have become so well-known throughout my circle of friends that we all look forward to our husbands’ special purchases of DeLafe for us. But as much as every one of my friends enjoys these gold-flaked exquisite chocolates, I know that mine are a special reminder of my Golden Child.

Solar Air Conditioning Is For Everyone

by

Wade Robins

One of the best ideas to come along in a very long time is the idea of solar air conditioning. Simplicity itself, the system has nonetheless been overlooked for far too long. As the technology of this system grows, the popularity of it will also spread. The system makes basic common sense when you consider that the main season we need air conditioning is also the season with the strongest direct sunlight.

The technology of solar air conditioning would benefit from this abundant supply of free sunlight power to run the air conditioning elements. With the power source being free, the solar air conditioning system would quickly replace the more common systems in use today.

Environmentally Friendly and Cost-Effective

The solar air conditioning system has many of the same internal elements as the more conventional units except that the power source comes from ultraviolet rays from the sun rather than electrical power. The solar air conditioning system uses the power of the sunlight to run the system all day long, and the residual power (stored up in batteries) would be able to keep the unit running through the night as well.

Solar Air Conditioning Benefits

The solar air conditioning system is very good for the environment, as it uses no electricity (created from the burning of diesel fuel in electrical plants). Conventional air conditioners use a vast amount of electricity to create cool air in systems that are not always as efficient as they should be. The fact that the energy source for these solar air conditioning units is free is simply a cost-saving bonus. The savings on your electrical bills alone will make this system worth having in your home. Remember though, that even though you use free sun power for these units does not mean that the cost to you is nothing. You still have to make sure that your unit is properly serviced and maintained for it to work right. Having regular service checks done by professional air conditioning technicians will prolong the life of your unit. For more info see http://www.knowairconditioner.com/Air_Conditioning_Repair on Air Conditioning Repair.

As the popularity of these units and their technology increases, more people are recognizing how efficient a system solar air conditioning really is. Do your research and find out if this system is the right one for you. You will be saving money and helping out the environment as well.

India set to install panic buttons on buses to combat sexual assault
February 5, 2017 · Uncategorized · (No comments)

Friday, May 27, 2016

The Indian Government announced on Wednesday they will issue a notification to ensure all buses are fitted with panic buttons to prevent sex-related violence occurring on buses in India. The motion was introduced by Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari. Installation of the buttons is set to become mandatory on June 2.

Tests are under way on 20 buses running from Rajasthan to New Delhi. Buses are to have panic buttons, a GPS-enabled vehicle tracking device, and CCTV cameras. The new buttons are located at the front doors and when pressed, a police control room has the ability to view live footage recorded inside the bus.

Last month, the government announced that as of 2017, mobile phones can’t be sold in India without a panic button. With the press of a single key, the panic button alerts emergency services that assistance is required.

Since a fatal sexual assault three and a half years ago on a bus in New Delhi, accompanied by increased rates of sexual assault, the government has been pressured to help women avoid the dangers of sexual assault. The bus sexual assault three and a half years ago resulted in India-wide protests, and laws regarding sexual assault were overhauled.

According to India’s National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), in 2014 New Delhi reported 1,813 rapes, more than any other Indian city. In more than 80% of rapes across India, the victim knew the rapist. In data from 2013, the rapists in 539 cases were parents, in 2,315 cases other relatives.

In 2012 the NCRB said the country had 24,923 reported rapes. However, this number grew over the following year, with 2013 seeing 33,707 reported.

In 2013, NCRB said New Delhi saw 1,636 rapes reported, with an Indian average of 92 women per day. The New Delhi cases alone account for more than four per day.

Wednesday, January 26, 2005

Ten people are dead and up to 200 injured after three trains crashed in Glendale, a suburb of Los Angeles.

Two passenger trains and a freight train carrying gravel collided at 6:05 a.m. local time during the morning rush hour. Both passenger trains were double-decker Metrolink trains, one northbound from Union Station, the other southbound. One train overturned, and the other caught fire.

The northbound train normally carries 30 to 50 passengers. The southbound train normally has 200 to 250 people on board.

Over 300 firefighters are attending the scene.

The chief of police of Glendale reported at a press conference that a man trying to commit suicide drove his car onto the train tracks, but apparently changed his mind and left the vehicle before the impact, leaving the vehicle on the tracks. The suspect was taken into custody by police officers who arrived at the scene of the accident and has, according to the police, already admitted driving the vehicle onto the tracks.

Monday, January 18, 2010

According to local officials, a United States drone attack in Pakistan’s South Waziristan province has killed at least fifteen people, although some reports put the death toll as high as twenty. The incident occurred in the Shaktoi region of the province.

“Now the death toll is 15. It could rise further. People are still busy removing rubble,” said a senior security official to the Reuters news agency. He commented that most of the dead were foreign fighters.

“The drones are apparently tracking and targeting Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud, whose presence is frequently reported in the area,” said another official.

The United States has increased attacks using drones since a suicide bomber killed seven US intelligence agents in eastern Afghanistan in late December of last year.

Islamists win battle for Mogadishu

Islamists win battle for Mogadishu
February 2, 2017 · Uncategorized · (No comments)

Tuesday, July 11, 2006

Two days of vicious fighting in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, has finally subsided with the surrender of troops loyal to the last remaining warlord in the city, Abdi Qeybdid.

Around 500 soldiers loyal to Qeybdid handed themselves over to the Union Of Islamic Courts (UIC) on Tuesday, giving the UIC control of around 99% of the capital. It was not without cost however. Estimates suggest that at least 70 people have been killed since fighting broke out on Sunday, although Reuters news agency puts the figure as high as 140.

One doctor at Medina hospital in Mogadishu told IRIN: “We confirmed 43 yesterday [Monday] and 54 Sunday, a total of 97 deaths,” although he admitted that more were being buried on the battlefield.

Abdi Qeybdid is thought have been injured and still hiding inside the city. He is one of the last of the United States backed secular warlords who took control of the capital with the collapse of the government in 1991. The government itself is too weak to maintain the capital and so has been based in the southern town of Baidoa. It is now divided over whether to continue negotiations with the Islamists, who it accuses of breaking an agreed ceasefire; talks between the two sides were supposed take place on Sunday in Khartoum.

The U.S. has accused the Courts of links with Al-Qaeda, which is strongly denied by one of the UIC leaders, Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys.

Relative calm has returned to Mogadishu, with people back on the streets and traffic returning to normal. In parts of the city already controlled by the Islamic Courts, road blocks have been lifted and the cost of food has dropped considerably. Many however are wary of the extremist elements within the Courts, which have so far seen the banning of the World Cup coverage and public floggings.

Now many in Mogadishu wish peace for a city that had taken damage as the site of many bloody fights over the past 16 years.

Events take place across UK to mark Remembrance Sunday
February 2, 2017 · Uncategorized · (No comments)

Sunday, November 9, 2008

Today is Remembrance Sunday, an annual observance in which Britons killed in wars around the world are remembered. Many events have taken place across the United Kingdom today and earlier this week, including many affiliated with the Poppy Appeal.

Queen Elizabeth II led the main event to mark the occasion at the Cenotaph in London, with events also taking place in North Staffordshire, Coventry, Wales, Lytham, St Anne’s, Northern Ireland and Birmingham, in addition to small local events across the country.

North Staffordshire marked the event when television presenter Nick Hancock released 15,500 poppy petals, representing the 15,500 British soldiers to be killed while in conflict since World War II.

This weekend’s football match between Coventry FC and Crystal Palace featured the players from both sides holding a minutes silence around a giant poppy.

The Royal British Legion sent its “Poppy Man” sculpture around Wales and Northern Island to draw attention to it’s appeal, while in Lytham and St Anne’s, the wife and daughter of the deceased comedian Les Dawson launched the appeal for funds. Tracy, the wife stated that “Les was in the army, where he served as a Trooper, in the 2nd Dragoon Guards (Queen’s Bays), he did lots of work for charity, and the Poppy Appeal was one of the ones close to his heart. I feel it is so fitting that I am able to help.”

In Birmingham, a team from the Royal Marines Commando, abseiled down a hotel to mark the appeal.

Services were also held in Iraq and Afghanistan by British troops, in addition to church services across the country.
