      "When You Say Nothing At All"

      It's amazing how you
      Can speak right to my heart.
      Without saying a word
      You can light up the dark.

      Try as I may, I could never explain
      What I hear when you don't say a thing.

      [Chorus:]
      The smile on your face
      Lets me know that you need me.
      There's a truth in your eyes
      Saying you'll never leave me.
      The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall.
      You say it best when you say nothing at all.

      All day long I can hear
      People talking out loud (oooh).
      But when you hold me near (you hold me near)
      You drown out the crowd (the crowd, the crowd).

      Try as they may, they can never define
      What's been said between your heart and mine.

      [Chorus:]
      The smile on your face
      Lets me know that you need me.
      There's a truth in your eyes
      Saying you'll never leave me.
       The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall.
       You say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.
      'Cause you say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.

      [Chorus:]
      The smile on your face
      Lets me know that you need me.
      There's a truth in your eyes
      Saying you'll never leave me.
       The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall.
       You say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.
      'Cause you say it best (you say it best) when you say nothing at all.

      (You say it best when you say nothing at all.
      You say it best when you say nothing at all.)

      That smile on your face,
       The truth in your eyes,
      The touch of your hand
      Lets me know that you need me.

      (You say it best when you say nothing at all.
      You say it best when you say nothing at all.)

      Jeff Bezos first named the company as Cadabra, after the magic slogan “Abra-Cadabra”. When he first mentioned this to his lawyer over the phone, his lawyer misheard it as “Cadaver ???” . Bezos knew right then, that the name would not stick.
      Bezos had the customer-centric approach to the business, right from the start. So, he had proposed to change the name to “Relentless Inc”, a way of saying that the company would be relentless in its approach to customer satisfaction. In 1994, the company’s then de-facto CTO was Shel Kaphan. He was not very amused by the proposal. So, Bezos continued to look for options for the company name.
      In the 1990s, the number of websites were finite, and countable by humans. The websites were sorted alphabetically on the “internet directory” of those days. After a bunch of research, Bezos settled on Amazon Inc for two reasons -
      Amazon river has the largest collection of flora and fauna in the world. Amazon Inc will represent the largest collection of retail items on the internet Amazon-dot-com will appear in the first pages of the internet directory, making it easier to attract users and customers. Source

      Some Amazon customers received an email from the company telling them their names and emails had been exposed due to a "technical error." Several customers shared the emails on social media Wednesday. Amazon said the problem was resolved, but did not provide clarity on how many users were affected nor for how long. In the email to affected customers, Amazon said it was unnecessary to reset passwords since it was "not a result of anything you have done."

      A lobbyist working for Amazon registered for Georgia’s ethics commission, sparking rumors that the e-commerce giant is eyeing Atlanta for its much-hyped “HQ2.” The company responded Tuesday saying Jacob Oster’s presence isn’t related to the search for Amazon’s second headquarters — although Atlanta is an odds-on favorite in the race. 238 cities and regions submitted bids to win the $5 billion HQ2, which promises to bring thousands of high-paying jobs to the chosen location.

      I can't sleep tonight
      Everybody saying everything's alright
      Still I can't close my eyes
      I'm seeing a tunnel at the end of all these lights 

      Sunny days
      Where have you gone?
      I get the strangest feeling you belong
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Even when the sun is shining
      I can't avoid the lightning 

      I can't stand myself
      I'm being held up by an invisible man
      Still life on a shelf when
      I got my mind on something else 

      Sunny days
      Where have you gone?
      I get the strangest feeling you belong
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Even when the sun is shining
      I can't avoid the lightning 

      Oh, where did the blue skies go?
      And why is it raining so?
      It's so cold 
      I can't sleep tonight
      Everybody's saying everything's all right
      Still I can't close my eyes
      I'm seeing a tunnel at the end of the lights 

      Sunny days
      Where have you gone?
      I get the strangest feeling you belong
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Is it because I lied when I was seventeen?
      Even when the sun is shining
      I can't avoid the lightning
      Oh, where did the blue skies go?
      And why is it raining so?
      It's so cold
      Why does it always rain on me?
      Why does it always rain on....

      There was a game we used to play
      We would hit the town on Friday night
      And stay in bed until Sunday
      We used to be so free
      We were living for the love we had and
      Living not for reality

      It was just my imagination [x3]

      There was a time I used to pray
      I have always kept my faith in love
      It's the greatest thing from the man above
      The game I used to play
      I've always put my cards upon the table
      Let it never be said that I'd be unstable

      It was just my imagination [x3]

      There is a game I like to play
      I like to hit the town on Friday night
      And stay in bed until Sunday
      We'll always be this free
      We will be living for the love we have
      Living not for reality

      It's not my imagination [x3]
      Not my [x18]

      The Amazon founder's wealth rocketed to $105.1 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, after shares in the company soared on strong holiday sales. The record was previously held by Microsoft founder Bill Gates, whose net worth was briefly above $100 billion in 1999. (And heÂ’d still top the chart if he hadnÂ’t given so much of his wealth to charity.) But if you account for inflation, Bezos has competition; Augustus CaesarÂ’s fortune, for example, could be worth a cool $5 trillion. Either way, the Amazon chief is worth more than the GDP of 125 of the worldÂ’s 195 countries.

      Maybe it's intuition 
      But some things you just don't question
      Like in your eyes
      I see my future in an instant
      and there it goes
      I think I've found my best friend
      I know that it might sound more than
      a little crazy but I believe 

      [chorus:] 

      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I think I dreamed you into life
      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I have been waiting all my life 

      There's just no rhyme or reason
      only this sense of completion
      and in your eyes
      I see the missing pieces
      I'm searching for
      I think I found my way home
      I know that it might sound more than
      a little crazy but I believe

      [chorus:] 

      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I think I dreamed you into life
      I knew I loved you before I met you
      I have been waiting all my life 

      A thousand angels dance around you
      I am complete now that I found you 

      [repeat chorus to fade]

      Esas manos que me llevan 
      por las calles de la vida 
      esa cara que me obliga 
      a mirarla de rodillas 
      sólo hay una, sólo hay una 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      Esa voz que me aconseja 
      no creer en las sonrisas 
      ese pelo que me cubre 
      como lluvia de caricias 
      sólo hay una, sólo hay una 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      O tú, o ninguna 
      no tengo salida 
      pues detrás de ti mi amor 
      tan sólo hay bruma 
      si no existieras 
      yo te inventaría 
      como el sol al día 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      Esa que de puro honesta 
      en el fondo te molesta 
      esa que te admira tanto 
      que te obliga a ser un santo 
      sólo hay una, sólo hay una 
      o tú, o ninguna 

      Confidente de mis sueños 
      de mis pasos cada día 
      su mirada mi camino 
      y su vida ya mi vida... 
      o tú, o ninguna 
      no tengo salida 
      pues detrás de ti mi amor 
      tan solo hay bruma 

      Si no existieras 
      yo te inventaría 
      pues sin duda alguna 
      o tú 
      o tú, o ninguna 
      o tú, o ninguna

    • I voted your remark "sad" because it truly is. It is a meaningless non-sequitur with no relevance ... which you think is profound.
    • Maybe you jw's will get lucky and your hero Hitler will start ruling again.
    • Trump is a pugilist, fully capable of vulgarity. It doesn’t really bother me. In some regards, it is refreshingly candid. It is not for nothing that the Bible calls the political nations “beasts.” They behave that way—ripping and tearing at each other and indeed, at anyone who gets in their way. So I am not put off by someone who drops the pretense and carries on to call a spade a spade. As much as ones might like the facade of being “presidential,” and of respecting the “dignity” of fellow world leaders, ought they not produce results to earn that respect? The hospital operating room can expect awed dignity when it routinely save lives—conducting the most delicate of procedures. But if the results degenerate to indistinguishable from that of a butcher shop, surely that aura of admiration will fade. “Laws are like sausages. It’s better not to see them being made,” is the old saying, and it is the butcher shop comparison that wins out over the precision operating room. It almost does my heart good to see Trump brawling with his political counterparts as they do their utmost to preserve “dignity.”  Moreover, you would almost expect Jehovah’s (American) servants to see that. They don’t because they truly are apolitical. They follow politics hardly at all, and there is a fair number of them that consider even a comment about the topic as akin to ripping a loud one at the concert hall—it is just gauche—it is as though deliberately contaminating the soufflé with the street rock salt. The JW Governing Body works hard to keep the squabbles of politics out of the congregation and to safeguard its neutrality.  Keeping truly neutral is not easy. Geoffrey Jackson reflects on how (Australian) candidates of his youth offered dramatically different proposals regarding the military draft—a matter that would affect him greatly. Updating his struggle to the present—adapting it to brothers today who might be personally advantaged or disadvantaged by the proposals of a given political figure—he ventured on how some might truly strive to be neutral and yet in the back of their head was the thought: “I hope that idiot doesn’t come into power.” He said it about two years ago. It is impossible for me not to wonder what “idiot”—if there was one—he had in mind.  Of course, Witnesses are politically neutral due to their advocacy for God’s kingdom—the one of the Sermon on the Mount—“thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” “God’s will is done in heaven,” I tell the householder as I glance upward. “I mean, I guess it is—surely he has it all running smoothly up there—but it sure isn’t done on earth. Pockets of it here and there may be, but nobody would ever say that the world runs that way it does today according to God’s will. According to the prayer, we should not expect that until the kingdom comes.” Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t go campaigning for human governments because they are announcing God’s government which will tackle and solve the problems human governments consistently flounder on. If Witnesses today did reflect on national politics—and the particulars are replicated in many nations—they might reflect that Trump’s enemies are the “one world government” people of the humanist variety—180 degrees apart from the one world government of the “God’s kingdom” variety. They are the humanists who would rise above national boundaries to blur or even erase them. They are humanists who yet pursue the dream of the League of Nations, reinvigorated after WWII as the United Nations. A worldwide blending of peoples and their interests into one common government by man, incorporating whatever is the humanistic thinking holding sway at the time. These ones fully expect those of government (largely themselves) to be granted dignity in light of the noble task they have assumed—it doesn’t matter if praiseworthy results are slow to come—it is the intention that matters. The common working people know it is a crock. They see their own interests being sold out for the loftier “higher” interests of these they would call the “elites.” Their economic interests are tamped down. Their moral values are shoved aside. They are astounded, to take an example, to think that biological differences should not determine male and female, and dismayed to see the view that completely defies their common sense and all of recorded history take the world by storm under the new tidal wave of humanists. They don’t think these guys deserve any dignity at all, so when a photo-shopped Trump is bare-knuckle boxing with the CNN moniker (bastion of world-government think), they love it, and they also love it that the dignified crowd are aghast. ....To highlight the GB’s challenge in encouraging all to stay on the same neutral page, I wrote the following in No Fake News but Plenty of Hogwash: “They just about succeeded in their mission to re-instill complete neutrality – they were alllmmoooost there, when along came the summer Olympics in Rio. On the second day of the Olympics, I mentioned to Tom Pearlsnswine in the field ministry that Hillary had worn a bright pants suit. “Christians are no part of the world!” he rebuked me. On the third day of the Olympics, at the Kingdom Hall, I told him that Trump had tied his shoe. “We must fix our eyes on Jerusalem above!” he said. On the fifth day of the Olympics, I dropped by his home while he was watching the games on TV. He screamed: “Look at that medal count, Tommy!” he shouted. “We’re cleaning up!”
