      Este jueves a mediodía el Cuerpo de Bomberos tuvo que atender dos incendios de gran magnitud, uno en La Carpio, la Uruca, y otro en el centro de San José, de la casa de Matute Gómez, 150 metros al oeste.
      El más grave fue en La Carpio, pues allí se quemaron cinco estructuras que dejaron a 10 adultos y 12 niños sin techo.
      De acuerdo con Guillermo Montoya, supervisor de Bomberos, el fuego se reportó a las 11:45 a. m. y fue controlado a las 12:11 p. m. Se consumieron 137 metros cuadrados de viviendas ubicadas 250 metros al norte de la primera parada de autobús.

      Incendio ubicado 200 metros al sur de los Tribunales de Justicia en San José.

      Una serie de incendios supuestamente dirigidos han atravesado las salas de los Testigos de Jehová en un condado del estado de Washington desde marzo, con el quinto puesto el viernes por la mañana temprano, dijeron las autoridades federales durante el fin de semana.
      En mayo, alguien también disparó 35 disparos de rifles a un Salón del Reino, un lugar de culto en la religión, en el condado de Thurston, al suroeste de Seattle, donde también ocurrió el supuesto incendio provocado, informó la afiliada de la NBC, KING.
      No se han identificado sospechosos, aunque el alguacil del condado de Thurston, John Snaza, describió el último incendio como uno de los “ataques” recientes contra los Salones del Reino.
      “Qué frustrante es que las personas que encuentran un lugar solemne de adoración, ahora están siendo destruidas”, dijo Snaza a los periodistas el viernes.
      Las autoridades fueron enviadas al incendio del viernes en un Salón del Reino

      Un poderoso incendio forestal en el norte de California incineró a la mayoría de una ciudad de aproximadamente 30,000 personas con llamas que se movieron tan rápido que no había nada que los bomberos pudieran hacer, dijeron las autoridades el viernes. Seis personas murieron, incluidas cinco que fueron encontradas en sus vehículos incendiados.
      Solo un día después de que comenzara, el incendio cerca de la ciudad de Paradise había crecido a casi 110 millas cuadradas (280 kilómetros cuadrados) y se estaba quemando completamente fuera de control.
      "Realmente no hubo enfrentamientos", dijo el capitán Scott McLean, del Departamento de Bosques y Protección contra Incendios de California, y explicó que las cuadrillas dejaron de atacar las llamas y ayudaron a las personas a salir con vida. "Estos bomberos estaban en modo de rescate todo el día de ayer".
      Por un día desesperado, Dawn Johnson esperó ansiosamente las noticias de su padre Richard Wayne Wilson y su esposa, Suzanne, que vivían en un parque de casas rodantes en Paradise que se quemó. La pareja se mudó de Texas a la ciudad de California, hace aproximadamente un año, y probablemente no estaba preparada para los incendios forestales.
      Vivían en un parque de casas rodantes en la ciudad de California, y era poco probable que estuvieran equipados para evacuar. Él tiene cáncer en etapa avanzada y ella está mayormente confinada a su cama, dijo.
      Johnson, de Independence, Oregon, confió en los miembros de la congregación de los Testigos de Jehová de la pareja para verificar los refugios locales. El viernes por la tarde, supo que habían sido encontrados cerca de Chico.
      "Están bien", dijo ella.

      Varios ex miembros de los Testigos de Jehová de Finlandia están recurriendo a la justicia tras ser impedidos de denunciar crímenes sexuales dentro de la organización.
      La Liga Finlandesa de Derechos Humanos está acompañando el proceso y recuerda que la libertad de culto no exime a los grupos religiosos de respetar los derechos humanos.
      La petición de investigación en profundidad de las actividades de grupos religiosos vino del secretario general de Derechos Humanos, Kaari Mattila, tras un programa de televisión del canal Yle, donde ex miembros de los Testigos de Jehová hicieron graves denuncias.
      Algunos de los entrevistados dijeron que fueron prohibidos de denunciar crímenes sexuales a las autoridades. En vez de eso, fueron instruidos a esperar la resolución de los problemas a través de los “tribunales” internos de la organización religiosa, sin resultado práctico.
      El portavoz de los Testigos de Jehová de Finlandia negó las acusaciones, diciendo que todas las acciones criminales se notifican a las autoridades.
      “Las evidencias están siendo mostradas. Lo que falta es que las autoridades realicen la supervisión necesaria. Nuestras leyes sobre libertad de religión no son un pase libre para violaciones de los derechos humanos”, afirmó el Secretario General de la Liga.
      Después de haber sido  prohibido en Rusia , los testigos de Jehová también se enfrentan a dificultades en Portugal , donde son acusados de violaciónes de derechos humanos por parte de sus prácticas consideradas desleales.
      Además, la secta responde a un proceso en la Corte de Justicia de la Unión Europea, por “reunir informaciones” de manera ilegal, en las visitas que hacen a las casas con el fin de recoger nuevos adeptos.

      PORTUGAL
      Based on legal arguments that revolve around violations of several articles of the Portuguese Constitution and the Religious Freedom Act, a petition has been launched to the Portuguese parliament to extinguish the legal entity that represents the Jehovah's Witnesses in Portugal and eliminate this community from the national registry of religions recognized and protected by law.
      The petition does NOT seek to prohibit Jehovah's Witnesses as a whole in the country. The petition denounces the institutional policy of shunning former members as a violation of basic human rights and psychological torture, and asks lawmakers and Portuguese judicial authorities to take measures to stop this abuse and suspend legal recognition of the entity. the branch until the shunning policies are changed.
      The petition is now gathering votes. 1000 votes assure that the author (s) of the petition will receive a hearing in parliament to present their case; 4000 votes ensure that the parliament will debate the petition during its session.
      You can see the petition here: http://peticaopublica.com/mobile/pview.aspx?pi=ExtRegistoATJ

      Parliament denies petition will ban Jehovah's Witnesses ~ Things are moving towards an end.
      The decision was taken unanimously by the members of the Parliamentary Committee on Constitutional Affairs, and without debate, in view of the opinion to that effect from the services of the Assembly of the Republic.
      The law requires that parliament prevent the admissibility of petitions when its object is illegal.
      Religious freedom is a constitutional right in Portugal since the approval of the Constitution of the Republic in 1976.
      Petitions are addressed by citizens to the Assembly of the Republic for the "defense of personal interests, the Constitution, the law or the general interest" or to request "a legislative initiative".
      When they are signed by more than a thousand people, the petitioners are heard in the parliamentary committee, the petition is published in the Diário da Assembleia da República and when they reach 4,000 they are debated in the plenary.
      The online petition on Jehovah's Witnesses, which has as its first subscriber José João Felgueiras Grego, claims that this religious organization is "against citizenship", "against blood", has an "extremist mentality", a " hate speech ", is" a dictatorship "and" destroys the dreams of the people ".
      Petitions are directed by citizen groups are directed to the Assembly of the Republic for the "defense of personal interests, the Constitution, the law or the general interest" or to request "a legislative initiative."

      Portugal 1-0 France (aet)
      Portugal shrugged off an early injury to Cristiano Ronaldo to claim a first-ever major tournament trophy thanks to Éder's 109th-minute strike.

      Portugal beat France 1-0 after extra time to lift their first major trophy Sub Éder scores 109th-minute winner, his first competitive goal for country Portugal captain and all-time record scorer Cristiano Ronaldo off injured after 25 minutes Both teams – through André-Pierre Gignac and Raphael Guerreiro – denied by woodwork France's first tournament defeat on home soil in 19 games, since 1960 third-place play-off
      Portugal are UEFA EURO 2016 champions. The team that drew all three of their group games, that won only once inside 90 minutes all tournament, beat hosts France after extra time at Saint-Denis to get their hands on their first major trophy.
      They did it without the talismanic Cristiano Ronaldo too, their captain forced off early in the first half through injury. Fernando Santos's side clung on at times but, with Ronaldo orchestrating things from the technical area as much as their coach by the end, they eventually provided the one moment of magic required. Éder's fizzing 20-metre strike in the second half of extra time was just too good.
      Such a scenario looked impossible after eight minutes, Ronaldo initially continuing after a heavy collision with Dimitri Payet before eventually being replaced. There were tears and a standing ovation from all corners as he was taken off. All the talk, all the analysis, all the predictions – out the window. Off went 61 international goals.
      Cristiano Ronaldo leads the celebrations
      One man chasing only his second was Moussa Sissoko. The France midfielder was rampant and threatened to break the deadlock soon after Ronaldo's departure yet his shot was saved.
      Rui Patrício had earlier thwarted Antoine Griezmann, athletically tipping away the in-form forward's looping header. Portugal offered little in those opening exchanges, three passes straight out of play encouraging the hosts.
      Kingsley Coman came on for Payet inside the hour and soon teed up Griezmann for surely the chance of the game – Les Bleus' No7 was unmarked but headed over. Though Olivier Giroud briefly got in on the act with a low effort, Rui Patrício was again up to the task. He had to be sharper still to keep out Sissoko's thumping strike later in the half.
      Only once, well into added time, was the Portugal keeper beaten. Substitute André-Pierre Gignac turned in the box and scuffed a shot into the ground which bobbled towards the net only to bounce agonisingly back off a post.
      Hugo Lloris had been far less employed in regulation time, only really called into action to claw away Nani's miscued cross and then hold Ricardo Quaresma's acrobatic attempt from the rebound. Though he subsequently dealt with Éder's header, the French captain was rescued by the crossbar when Raphael Guerreiro fired in a free-kick and, with 109 minutes on the clock, could do nothing to keep out the sensational winner.
      Match analysis from Stade de France
      Man of the Match: Pepe (Portugal)
      Pepe missed the semi-final with a thigh injury but returned in style, keeping adidas Golden Boot winner Griezmann as quiet as could have been hoped. "We've written a brilliant page in the story of Portuguese football," said the centre-back.
      All without Ronaldo
      The man Portugal's hopes apparently rested on was out of action after less than ten minutes. To watch him battle on for a quarter of an hour was both desperately sad and hugely admirable. It was indicative of his relentless drive to have an impact – a desire that is heightened on the big occasion. For him then to cajole his players before extra time and gesticulate desperately throughout the additional 30 minutes was testimony to his team spirit. He was, if only briefly, a coach as well as a star player.
       
      Who needs goals for drama?
      This was not exactly thrill-a-minute stuff. Clear-cut opportunities were at a premium and some of the biggest names on the field were either not at their best or not on the pitch at all. However, it quickly became evident that one moment would decide this. That knowledge that someone was only a split-second from becoming a hero made for a gloriously nervy night. The tension was palpable throughout the stadium.

      Se incendió una bodega y dos vehículos en el interior del salón de asambleas de los Testigos de Jehová ubicada en la calle 6 s/n x 25 y 25-A de la colonia San Felipe Chi, al Sur de la ciudad, debido a un corto circuito.
      El fuego inició en una bodega de 10 x 8 metros, donde se encontraba un automóvil Chevrolet Chevy color azul, con placas de circulación YZV-64-15 y una camioneta Toyota Hilux color blanco, modelo 2014 con número de matrícula YR-03-612 propiedad de la organización Testigos de Jehová; los daños materiales fueron reportados como pérdida total.
      Al lugar acudió la unidad de bomberos de la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública al mando del policía Luis Francisco Herrera Concha, logrando sofocar las llamas.

    • Just as the WT knows how to work the global market by investing their money in hedge funds, they know how to manipulate a developing mind with persuasion techniques.  I perceive the downplay of higher education as a safeguard from losing members.  While the organization warns these young ones of Satan’s worldly traps when pursuing higher education, in reality it appears to me that it’s all about keeping JWs captive to the organization’s “empty philosophy”.  Col 2:8  Knowing how the young mind develops sheds light on the org's use of persistent warnings not to pursue higher education.  “Developmental Tasks and Attributes of Late Adolescence/Young Adulthood (Ages 18-24 years) http://www.amchp.org/programsandtopics/AdolescentHealth/projects/Documents/SAHRC AYADevelopment LateAdolescentYoungAdulthood.pdf This is a time of life when very little is normative. It is a period of frequent change and exploration that covers many aspects of their life: home, family, work, school, resources, and role. Develop and apply abstract thinking skills Adolescents experience significant changes in their capacity to think. In changing from concrete to abstract thought they are increasingly able to understand and grapple with abstract ideas, think about possibilities, think ahead, think about thinking, and “put themselves in another person’s shoes.” In general, this changes their ability to think about themselves, others and the world around them. This is a gradual process that spans adolescence and young adulthood. For example, early in the process youth are limited in their ability to hold more than one point of view – understanding something from one perspective but not another. ·        Capacity for abstract thought becomes established; can think abstractly and hypothetically; can discern the underlying principles and apply them to new situations; and can think about the future, considering many possibilities and logical outcomes of possible events. ·       Able to hold and manipulate clusters of abstract ideas and create systems for organizing abstract thoughts. ·       Greater ability to consider different points of view at the same time can result in increased empathy and concern for others, and new interest in societal issues for many. It also allows youth to better value the diversity of people (and their perspectives) and appreciate that there may be many right answers to a problem. Adopt A Personal Value System Adolescents develop a more complex understanding of moral behavior and underlying principles of justice. They question and assess beliefs from childhood and restructure these beliefs into a personal ideology (e.g. more personally meaningful values, religious views, and belief systems to guide decisions and behavior). ·        Decisions and values are less influenced by peers. ·       Able to see multiple viewpoints, value the diversity of people and perspectives and appreciate that there can be many right answers to a problem. ·        Identify values and viewpoints that work for oneself while respecting viewpoints/values of others I would imagine there is a high risk of young JWs entering a college or university after high school, with the same age group, and going through the same mental development stages ...leaving the Watchtower altogether.  
    • John 17:14-16 The comments in the study Bible on John 17:15 say: "Jehovah...could even separate his people physically from the rest of the world and place them in a a safe and peaceful environment. However, regarding his disciples, Jesus prayed to his heavenly Father: "I request you, not to take them out of the world, but to watch over them because of the wicked one." Jehovah has chosen not to take us "out of the world." Rather, it is his will that we live among the general population of this world in order to proclaim his message of hope and comfort to others. (Rom. 10:13-15) But, as Jesus implied in his prayer, by living in this world, we are exposed to "the wicked one." Disobedient mankind and wicked spirit forces cause much pain and anguish, and Christians are not immune to distress." 1 Peter 5:9 So while we recognize we have to live in a world under Satan's control, it doesn't mean we should go out of our way to expose ourselves to potentially dangerous influences and bad association. There are of course necessary things we must do to survive and provide for our families - such as employment, which as you correctly pointed out, can mean rubbing shoulders with worldly people and attitudes whatever level of education we choose. But even on that, we are selective so as to minimize our exposure to potentially harmful influences. It may include being selective as to what type of work we are willing to accept, or whom we work with/for. Many caring parents know they can't completely eliminate bad influences at school for instance (since kids have to have some type of schooling and it is beneficial), but they may choose to be selective as to whom they allow their kids to spend their extra time with. So living in the world, we recognize there are certain things we must do whether we like it or not. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't exercise caution and be selective as to what we choose to involve ourselves in. I could rationalize that I need a job to support myself and my family - a legitimate and necessary need,  but would I choose to work for the mafia to do so? No, I would be selective and cautious.  I agree with you. I often have the same problem on both phone and tablet. Fortunately I've recently discovered that we can edit and make corrections. I wish I had known that earlier before "auto-correct" ran roughshod over my posts.  As for my level of education, I provide as little information as possible to identify me. As a "whistleblower" on some things, there would be an opportunity for "blowback" from men in authority who have something to hide. I don't even post what country I'm from. So when I have written that at times there are men in authority who act as wickedly as people in the world and hide behind their authority, I know exactly what I'm talking about. That's why I don't buy into the "Jesus is in full control of everything..." stuff, because I know some of the stuff that goes on is about as unChristlike as you can get. He doesn't cause/control it just because he allows it for a time. I also question some of the decisions men (not Jesus) have made when I am in possession of all the facts - especially when removal or disfellowshipping has as it's objective to silence whistleblowers who expose their corruption. I have never been DF'd, but I know if they thought I was spilling the beens on them, that's exactly what would happen. So I don't mention any names either that would tip them off. Just letting people know that you can still maintain your faith and relationship with God despite the evil that (some) men do - and get away with for now.  Sorry if this rant is off topic.
    • Perhaps it can be as you said. And perhaps this can be true with many other similar "stories".   What I see as important in this "story", is fine moral message and inspirational, motivating injection that in this materialistic and superficial everyday life offers a spiritual upgrade.... said with different order of words. 
    • Some do. Like the Rainbow Mountains, and some of the Caucasus (Svaneti) look more like rocky Alps. I'd love to see those mountains, and I planned to visit Georgia within two or three years if possible. I've never been to Georgia, the closest so far has been to northern Turkey (Ankara, Zonguldak, Samsun). If Jehovah did not intervene, and nature was left to itself, moving the tectonic plates would have caused thousands of violent aftershocks and tsunamis for quite some time after the floodwaters settled. Even on water, during the Flood, the Ark would have to be given divine protection. Settling on a high mountain might protect from tsunamis but not the quakes. I'd like to look up some info on these. Where should I start?
    • The story has also been told that it was a "black boy" who offered him the newspaper for free: https://mylife-chapter.blogspot.com/2017/08/who-is-richer-than-bill-gates.html When my wife was a school principal, teachers were always putting up posters about, for example, the "Ten Things Bill Gates Says about School" or "What Bill Gates Said Were the Most Important Things in Life" etc. He may have told a story like this, but usually people create such stories so that their own moral lesson comes across with more authority.
