About a month ago Mahamud had indicated that he would not beseeking re-election in 2017 but wouldserve out his term. T oday however all that changed when he resigned asa member of Parliament. This immediately puts hisCayo North seat up for grabs as abi-election must be held within thenext 90 days. Who Bex Bex!!! MahmudResigns From The House The UDP is rearing to go with itsstandard bearer Omar Figueroa who was elected as Standard Bearerearlier this year in February The PUP on the other hand has not found a newstandard bearer since Mahmudindicated he would not run again. Attorney Michel Chebat and businessman Richard Harrison have both declared an interest in thedivision. The PUP must now movequickly to hold a convention to eitherelect or endorse someone. It must be said that the opposition seems to have been caught with theirpants down, because up until mid October Mahmud said that he wouldserve out his term and not seekre-election, he mentioned nothing about resigning. However something happened between then and thismorning at 1 1:00 am, when he resigned with immediate effect. A release from the Clerk of the National Assembly says that the Speaker of the House ofRepresentatives has accepted hisresignation. Now a bi-election must be held no later than Monday February 23, 2015. In fact, it can be held withinjust 15 days. The trigger is that awrit of election will be issued by theGovernor General and after that anelection must be held within 15 to 21days.

Relatives of the missing travelled across the country gathering supportand t hey had been attacked by local police in Iguala after attending alabour rights demonstration. President Nieto had facedwidespread criticism over the crime,despite vowing to track down thoseresponsible. Relatives of the missing have ledmass protests across the country toexpress their anger at the government. The official explanation offered bythe Mexican authorities is that thestudents were murdered by a drugsgang, but family and supporters saythey are unconvinced. Forensic tests are being carried outon bodies found in mass graves inGuerrero. The mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abarca has been arrested and faces accusations that he ordered police toconfront the students on the day oftheir disappearance. The case has highlighted the issueof collusion between drug cartels andthe Mexican authorities. In recent years thousands of peoplehave disappeared or been killed afterbeing caught up in drug-relatedviolence. MexicoÂ’ s Pr esident Enrique Pena Nieto

T ell me what to do. I've just been in the dumps lately thinking about being single,wishing I were married, wishingI had someone to be with duringthe holidays, feeling sorry formyself. I thought about you and Isaid, 'Mary would understandwhat I'm feeling.' But what do Ido?" I said to her very simply "S tar t praising God." That's all I needed to say to her-she knew the principlebut had just forgotten to practice it."Of course," she said, "that's the answer ." She recalled how a few years earlier she had come out of areal depression by praising God. The next Sunday she reported to me that it worked immediately She said, "I went home and started praising God for all his goodnessto me and in short order my spirits were lifted, the self pitywas gone, and I was able to trulybe thankful for who I am and whatI have." I'm talking about offering a sacrifice of praise-praising Godin the midst of depression or self-pityor whatever Praising God when we don't feel it or even when we don't A Sacrifice of Praise want to. It is a biblical principle tooffer God sacrifices of praise, and asacrifice is something costly right? It will require us to sacrifice our right togrumble or complain or feel sorry forourselves. But when we choose tooffer a sacrifice of praise-in spite ofour feelings or circumstances-wediscover that it changes us. Also, praise is a weapon to be used in spiritual conflict. Psalm 8:2 says,"From the lips of children andinfants you have ordained praisebecause of your enemies, tosilence the foe and the avenger ." Scripture says that God inhabits thepraise of his people. This means thatwhere there is praise and adorationof God, he takes up residence in thatpraise, and his presence alwaysmakes Satan run the other way Satan cannot abide the presence ofthe living God. Satan is allergic topraise of God. Do you feel like Satan has been defeating you on every hand lately?Is he robbing you of blessings andpeace that God has intended for youto have? Start praising God; yourenemy has to flee when you do.When you offer a sacrifice of praise,you are simply obeying Scripture,and God will honor your obedience.If we love him, we will keep hiscommandments. And he wants us to praise him at all times, because praisechanges us. By: Ann V oskamp Contributed By: Janice Swift "Y ou intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. Hebrought me to this position so Icould save the lives of manypeople." Genesis 50:20 (NL T) It can be a real mess out there. And the crazy thing is, there can be wholerising muck of stuff on the inside too. And yet — we do it anyways: S tring up a tangle of lights. Set a mustyangel atop the tree. Deck the front porch and the backstreets and the whole tilted world inthis twinkling robe, this tinseled robe.W atch how the whole world spins round in these lit colors. But as much as the world decoratesand prepares for Christmas, it'slike the hem of our robe is dirty anddragging; there's always the rippedunderside of things, the dreams andbits of us and unspoken hopes, all tornto pieces. Y ou can feel this — in a torn-up world, you feel a bit torn apart. When you are brave, you giveyourself the gift of facing andtouching your own torn places. Theplaces where we're torn to pieces —can be thin places where we touchthe peace of God. Like Joseph, in the book ofGenesis, who reaches out touches hisown worn-thin place. He feels alongthe edges of the torn places, and hesees through, telling his brothersthat verse we can hold onto like agift today: "Y ou intended to harm me, but God intended it all forgood." What was intended to tear youapart, God intends it to set you apart. Whatever has torn you, God makesa thin place to see glory Whatever happens, whatever unfolds, whateverunravels, you can never be undone. Y ou can stand around a Christmas tree with a family tree like Joseph's,with cheaters and beaters anddeceivers. Or his dad, Jacob, who ranaway and ran around and ran folksdown. But out of a family line that lookslike a mess, God brings the Messiah. “Courage doesn’t always roar. “Courage doesn’t always roar. “Courage doesn’t always roar. “Courage doesn’t always roar. “Courage doesn’t always roar. Y ou Can Never Be Undone What was intended to harm, Godintended all of it for good, and nomatter what intends to harm you,God's arms have you. Y ou can never be undone. No matter what intends to harmyou ... God is never absent, neverimpotent, never distant. Y ou can never be undone. In the middle of all our collectivemess stands the most monstrous evil.The wood of the crche that heldbaby Jesus lies torn apart behind thewood of the Cross. The cries of theinnocent Babe under the stars ofBethlehem twist into the agonizedcries of the innocent victim atop theinjustice of Calvary The holy dark over the mangergives way to the heinous dark overthe Messiah and the slamminghammer and the tearing vein andthe piercing thorn — the createdmurdering the Creator The Cross stands as the epitome ofevil. And yet God takes the greatest evil ever known to humanity and turns itinto the greatest Gift you have everknown. "If the worst things work for good to a believer what shall the best things?" writes puritan Thomas W atson. "Nothing hur ts the godly ... all things ... shall cooperate fortheir good, that their crosses shallbe turned into blessings." If God can transfigure the greatestevil into the greatest Gift, then Heintends to turn whatever you'reexperiencing now into a gift. Y ou cannot be undone. Somewhere, Advent can storm and howl and look messy And still, the world all robed for Christmas can spin bravely andbeautifully on — holding on to a Godwho won't let you be undone. Lord, we come to Y ou not because Y ou are our last hope, but because Y ou are our first love. W e're coming to Y ou before we do anything at all because waiting on Y ou is wisest of all. W e trust Y ou to work all this out in Y our good time. Y ou are only good. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

The hotel is full." The Mrs. Mary said, "But your sign says that you havevacancies." The desk clerk stammered andthen said curtly "Y ou know that we do not admit Jews. Now ifyou will try the other side oftown..." Mrs. Mary stiffened noticeable andsaid, "Did you know I converted to your religion." The desk clerk said, "Oh, yeah, let me give you a little test. Howwas Jesus born?" Mrs. Mary replied, "He was born to a virgin named Mary in a littletown called Bethlehem." "V ery good," replied the hotel clerk. "T ell me more." Mrs. Mary replied, "He was born in a manger ." "That's right," said the hotel clerk. "And why was he born in a manger?" Mrs. Mary said loudly "Because a jerk like you in the hotel wouldn'tgive a Jewish lady a room for thenight!" Santa lives at the North Pole. JESUS is everywhere. Santa rides in a sleigh JESUS rides on the wind and walkson the water Santa comes but once a year JESUS is an ever present help. Santa fills your stockings with goodies JESUS supplies all your needs. Santa comes down your chimney uninvited JESUS stands at your door andknocks.. and then enters your heart. Y ou have to stand in line to see Santa JESUS is as close as the mentionof His name. Santa lets you sit on his lap JESUS lets you rest in His arms. Santa doesn't know your name, all he can say is "Hi little boy or girl, What's your name?" JESUS knew our name before wedid.Not only does He know ourname, He knows our address too.Heknows our history and future and Heeven knows how many hairs are onour heads. Santa has a belly like a bowl full of jelly JESUS has a heart full of love. All Santa can of fer is HO HO HO JESUS offers health, help and hope. Santa says "Y ou better not cry" JESUS says "Cast all your cares on me for I care for you.” Santa's little helpers make toys JESUS makes new life, mendswounded hearts, repairs brokenhomes and builds mansions. Santa may make you chuckle but JESUS gives you joy that is yourstrength. While Santa puts gifts under your tree JESUS became our gift and diedon the tree. It's obvious there is really no comparison. W e need to remember WHO Christmas is all about. W e need to put Christ back in Christmas. Jesus is still the reason for theseason. Y es, Jesus is better he is even better than Santa Claus! Once upon a time, a perfect manand a perfect woman met. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfectwedding. Their life was, of course"perfect." One snowy stormy Christmas Eve, this perfect couple was driving theirperfect car (a SUV) along a winding road, when they noticed someone atthe side of the road in distress. Beingthe perfect couple they stopped tohelp. There stood Santa Claus with a hugebundle of toys. Not wanting todisappoint any children on the eve ofChristmas, the perfect couple loadedSanta and his toys into their vehicle. Soon they were driving alongdelivering the toys. Unfortunately the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect coupleand Santa Claus had an accident.Only one of them survived theaccident. Who was the survivor? The perfect woman survived. She's the only one who really existed in thefirst place. Everyone knows there isno Santa Claus and there is no suchthing as a perfect man. So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the perfect womanmust have been driving. This explainswhy there was an accident.

The influenza A and B viruses that routinely spread in people (human influenza viruses) are responsible for seasonal flu epidemics each year Influenza A viruses can be broken down into sub-types depending onthe genes that make up the surfaceproteins. Over the course of a fluseason, different types (A & B) and subtypes (influenza A) of influenza circulate and cause illness.

It can cause mildto severe illness, and at times can leadto death. The flu is different from acold. The flu usually comes onsuddenly People who have the flu often feel some or all of thesesymptoms: Fever* or feeling feverish/chills Cough Sore throat Runny or stuffy nose Muscle or body aches Headaches Fatigue (tiredness) Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is morecommon in children than adults.* It's important to note that noteveryone with flu will have a fever Flu Complications Most people who get influenza willrecover in a few days to less than twoweeks, but some people will developcomplications (such as pneumonia) as a result of the flu, some of whichcan be life-threatening and result indeath. Influenza (Flu Virus) Influenza (Flu Virus) Influenza (Flu Virus) Influenza (Flu Virus) Influenza (Flu Virus) Pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusand ear infections are examples ofcomplications from flu. The flu canmake chronic health problems worse.For example, people with asthma mayexperience asthma attacks while theyhave the flu, and people withchronic congestive heart failure mayexperience worsening of thiscondition that is triggered by the flu. People at High Risk from Flu Anyone can get the flu (even healthy people) and serious problems related to the flu canhappen at any age, but some peopleare at high risk of developing seriousflu-related complications if they getsick. This includes people 65 yearsand older people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions(such as asthma, diabetes, or heartdisease) pregnant women, and young children. Flu Severity Flu is unpredictable and how severeit is can vary widely from one seasonto the next depending on many things,including: what flu viruses are spreading, how much flu vaccine is available, when vaccine is available, how many people get vaccinated, experts think that flu viruses arespread mainly by droplets made whenpeople with flu cough, sneeze or talk.These droplets can land in the mouthsor noses of people who are nearbyor possibly be inhaled into thelungs. Less often, a person mightalso get flu by touching a surfaceor object that has flu virus on itand then touching their ownmouth or nose. T o avoid this, people should stay away from sick people and stay homeif sick. It also is important to washhands often with soap and water If soap and water are not available, usean alcohol-based hand rub. Linens,eating utensils, and dishes belongingto those who are sick should not beshared without washing thoroughlyfirst. Eating utensils can be washedeither in a dishwasher or by handwith water and soap and do notneed to be cleaned separately Further frequently touched surfaces and how well the flu vaccine is matched to flu viruses that are causing illness.

If you meetsomeone who has something tooffer the group, make the necessaryintroductions. Y ou excel at facilitating interactions betweenothers. T oward the middle of the week, you are using others to youradvantage, or at least you’re puttingtheir unique talents to use for thesake of the greater good, and byFriday you’re going to get somerecognition for all the connectionsand possibilities you’ve created. OnSaturday your friends will all but build a statue in your honor Sunday get some rest. Lucky numbers: 03, 14, 20 T AURUS: April 21 to May 21 As tantalizing as the potential pay off may seem, taking a risk atthe outset of the week isn’t going topan out the way you want. Ratherthan directing your energy towardschemes of world domination,direct your energy toward otherpeople. Y our charm gets you more midweek than you might expect.Thursday is a day of enlightenment,but Friday and Saturday are, frankly weird. Rather than attempting tounderstand, just try not to takeanything personally On Sunday be around people who make youfeel comfortable. Lucky numbers: 07, 17, 42. GEMINI: May 22 to June 21 Y our opinions are pretty solid, but that doesn’ t mean everyone’ s in the mood to hear them. If the rightmessage is delivered at the wrongtime, it won’t resonate. So spendMonday and T uesday with your ears open. Be the master ofyour own fate and, when it comesto your friends, be encouragingwithout being dogmatic.W ednesday and Thursday most likely find you at workand involved in a minorsquabble, but Friday andSaturday the stars have somethingfairly radical in store for you.A change of heart. A change of perspective. Some kind ofsurprise. Sunday has youthinking about change. Lucky numbers: 19, 29, 36. CANCER June 21 to July 21 At the start of the week, you’re tapped. Y ou are out of gas. Y ou lack fuel. This is more of an emotionalstate than a physical reality —problems in your social life andprivate life are zapping your Your Weekly Horoscope and Lucky Numbers emotional ener gy W ednesday and Thursday are, therefore, ideal days torecharge. Eat a banana, put onsome comfortable socks and plugyourself in to a deep sleep. Fridayand Saturday you’ll feel restoredand confused when someone elseemotionally retreats. Although you’ll completely understand wherethey’re coming from. If you havenothing else to do on Sunday go exploring. Lucky numbers: 49, 55, 67. LEO: July 24 to August 21 Y ou’ve seen romantic comedies about people as giddy as you andyou-know-who are, although you alsofeel like your romantic happiness atthe start of the week is transcendent.Certainly it lifts you up higher than you have been in a while. Success onthe love front translates into moreconfidence in every other aspect ofyour life — which explains whythe middle of the week you’re able toask for things and then (hooray!) getthem. Friday and Saturday youmight have to let a few things go,make a few compromises, butnothing you can’ t handle. On Sunday art is on your mind. Lucky numbers: 73, 88, 97. VIRGO: August 22 to September 21 Y ou have responsibilities and you’re dedicated to seeing them through —even when, on Monday and T uesday you have a perfect excuse to letyourself off the hook. This is admirableof you. And fate will reward you: W ednesday and Thursday are a postcard of romance. A postcard with swans on it. And cute buildings. The great thing about love is youcan take it anywhere in the world withyou. Friday and Saturday you’reitching to do some cleaning. Blastthe radio and get out your sponges.Sunday some confusion about your relationship with you-know-who requires your attention. Lucky numbers: 69, 78, 86. LIBRA: September 22 to October 23 The right words just slide out ofyour mouth on Monday withoutyour having to think about it. And people are responding the wayyou want them to. Expressionand high ideas figure into yourday on T uesday as well, but W ednesday you fall into a sentimental mood and byThursday you feel entirely unsocial.People from your past keepwalking through your thoughts.Then, Friday a dose of fun — and possible romance — dramaticallyimproves your outlook oneverything and returns you to thepresent. Y ou will remain cheerful, alert and attuned to beautythrough the weekend. Lucky numbers: 59, 77, 95 SCORPIO: October 24 to November 21 Lar geness is a theme on Monday ‘The bigger the better ’ is your mantra. Y our reasons are philosophical, but the effect thisoutlook will have is financial. ByT uesday you might find yourself the proud and somewhatembarrassed owner of an incrediblyexpensive piece of art. Or furniture.Or even jeans. Midweek, practiceself-control. Instead of eating out,make yourself a sandwich. Focuson non-material things — yourfuture, for example. Define apath. Friday and Saturday yourproblem-solving skills are needed athome, and Sunday will tax yourimagination in pleasurable ways.Lucky numbers: 23, 46, 63. SAGITT ARIUS: November 22 to December 21 Y ou and your friends are more jovial than a performance troupeon Monday and T uesday Y ou feel a bit like you’re in somekind of play — or a sitcom. Y our social circle is satisfying on adeep level. But W ednesday and Thursday your focus turnsinward. V alues, original thinking and music figure strongly Friday is a fine day to go to a party —introduce yourself to a stranger see how much you have in common —and Saturday is rife with newideas. Y ou impress people wherever you go. But youexhaust yourself in theprocess. On Sunday slow and steady is the answer Lucky numbers: 39, 52, 83 CAPRICORN: December 22 to January 20 Y our dreams are smarter than you may realize. If you’re tryingto solve a problem on Mondayor T uesday consider what your own mind has been telling you.And whatever you do, don’t stress. By W ednesday or Thursday when positivity and goodoutcomes are strong themes,everything will have sorteditself out. Money is in the stars onFriday — either a lot of it or alack of it — and Saturday hassomething to do with your future.On Sunday your compassionate side emerges in an interactionwith friends. Y ou are only too glad to help. Lucky numbers: 13, 26, 48. AQUARIUS: January 20 to February 18 Remember the ‘Care Bears’?They lived on clouds, they eachhad their own specialty and theyharnessed the group’ s power to do good things. That’ s what your group of friends is like onMonday and T uesday The start of the week is as expansive as acloudscape. W ednesday and Thursday are, unfortunately the opposite of expansive (restrictionand discipline figure strongly and you may not get the answersyou’re looking for). But Fridayis just about perfect: you haveener gy you feel inspired, you feel significant. This mood,gloriously enough, lasts throughthe weekend. Lucky numbers: 66, 75, 94. PISCES: February 20 to March 21 An authority figure (most likely a boss) is a big part ofyour life at the start of the week.Do the right thing. Give them therespect they deserve. And when a blabbermouth startsin about something inconsequential,put your foot down. Y ou’re not a goody-goody; you’re a personwho cares about relationships.Relationships with friendsin high places are crucialon W ednesday and Thursday On Friday kick of f your shoes and give yourselfa break after what will havemost likely been a gruelingweek. Then spoil yourself thisweekend. Lucky numbers: 58, 79, 87.
