DELTA: The governor of the Central Bank Ali Al-Alak to start the necessary procedures for the opening of a branch of Iraqi centers in Najaf.
Al-Aalak said in a statement during his visit to the shrine of Imam Ali in Najaf that “the necessary steps have been taken to open the branch of the Central Bank in Najaf, and some of the sites studied have been examined in advance.
A lecture will be given at the Rafidain Center for Dialogue under the title (monetary policy from price stability to financial stability and economic stimulus). (wink)
BigJess: Me likey all those keywords: Monetary, Price, Financial and Economic...
EHankins: Well look at that... Looks like Iraq's currency is going to open up another bank so they can have economic stimulus and financial stability... Yeah will you look at that!
Self Help: Helping Others Help Themselves
By Baba Shuddhaanandaa Brahmachari
My heart’s first thought in serving all human beings is to release them from the crippling, self-created illusion of dependence. To my mind, no true help comes through charity, and no gift from outside can change the plight of the underprivileged.
Traditional charity involves a gift from one who has more than the one who receives it, which generates lower self-esteem and a sense of inadequacy in the receiver.
It leaves the receiver waiting for the next handout, more convinced than ever of his or her own powerlessness, and with the personal initiative required to move beyond poverty depleted.
Sabickford: when Iraq invaded Kuwait in 1990, the Iraqi Dinar was used for a brief period and the Kuwaiti Dinar plummeted in value. When the currency was reinstated in early 1991,
Isa52bc:Kuwait revalued March 24, 1991:
Saltydog: So if Kuwait RVed on March 24, 1991, that would have been a Sunday ........ Interesting hmmmmm
Isa52bc: The Kuwait dinar rv'd very quickly and quietly. Very few outside of the military knew about it. I have 3 friends who profited from Kuwait RV. Two of them were in the military and one was a private citizen.
SusanaC: quietly is a good word...that is why we must hold on and stay alert like ray says...it is done and our turn is coming up
The Power Of Laughter
By Maria Khalifé
Laughter is the best medicine. ~ Proverbs
Laughter is puzzling. We don’t know where it comes from, but we do know that we like it. Babies like to laugh; we like to laugh at them laughing, don’t we? We certainly don’t work to discover in a scholarly way what laughter is or the benefits of laughter.
We just enjoy the power of laughter and accept it as part of our life experience. We like it and when we haven’t experienced it for a while, we miss it. We feel so good after a good belly laugh that makes tears come out of our eyes.
Are You Addicted To Anxiety?
Learn How Not to be Addicted to Anxiety?
By Judith Orloff MD
Anxiety is a psychological and physiological state characterized by somatic, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral components. The root meaning of the word anxiety is ‘to vex or trouble’; in either the absence or presence of psychological stress, anxiety can create feelings of fear, worry, uneasiness and dread.
Our world is in the midst of an emotional meltdown. As a psychiatrist, I’ve seen that many people are addicted to the adrenaline rush of anxiety, known as “the fight or flight response” and don’t know how to diffuse it.
