      NICARAGUA es para muchos tierra de lagos y volcanes. En este país se encuentra el lago más grande de Centroamérica, el lago de Nicaragua o Cocibolca, que en lengua indígena significa “mar dulce”. En su interior hay cientos de islas, y es el único lago del mundo de agua dulce que alberga a animales marinos, como tiburones, peces espada y sábalos reales.

      Nicaragua tiene una de las regiones más aisladas de Centroamérica: la costa de los Mosquitos, llamada también Mosquitia. Se trata de una franja de unos 65 kilómetros (40 millas) de ancho a lo largo de la mayor parte de la costa atlántica y que entra en la vecina Honduras. Los misquitos son uno de los grupos indígenas que hay en Nicaragua, y su historia se remonta a antes de la llegada de los europeos en el siglo dieciséis.
      Los misquitos tienen lazos sociales muy fuertes y algunas costumbres particulares. Por ejemplo, en su idioma no tienen una palabra formal tal como “señor” o “señorita”. En las comunidades rurales, los jóvenes  se dirigen a los mayores llamándolos respetuosamente “tío” o “tía”, ya sean parientes o no. Otra costumbre de las mujeres misquitas es saludarse entre sí juntando las mejillas mientras la que inicia el saludo inhala por la nariz.

Un caso que indignó a muchas personas a primera horas de este jueves ocurrió en la terminal de buses del Mercado Roberto Huembes, en Managua, en donde un hombre de 70 años apuñaló a un joven que se ganaba la vida como cobrador de la Ruta Masatepe-Managua.
      Testigos dicen que todo ocurrio muy rápido y no se percataron que el hombre identificado como Álvaro Francisco Pavón sacó un cuchillo que traía oculto en su pantalón y le dio una estocada fulminante por la espalda, todo porque reclamaba el vuelto de cinco córdobas
      Ante el suceso vendedores y también algunos de los pasajeros lo capturaron y de inmediato llamaron a las autoridades policiales del Distrito V de la capital de Nicaragua para que tomaran cartas en el asunto.
      Ante la emergencia decidieron trasladar al joven de nombre Juan Gregorio Castillo que "nadaba" en su propia sangre en un autobús al Hospital Manolo Morales, en donde desgraciadamente horas después perdería la vida. 
      En Nicaragua se han dado algunos casos espeluznantes de homicidios que ocurren ya sea por rencillas personales o pleitos, que parecen dejar en evidencia que existen personas que no logran controlar su temperamento, reaccionando de forma violenta y sanguinaria. 
      La Policía Nacional ha informado en esta semana que estarán poniendo mano dura contra la delincuencia en esta temporada de Semana Santa, tanto en barrios así como en balnearios y centros recreativos, lugares en donde concurre una gran cantidad de personas y que se espera no se den acontecimientos fatales de ninguna índole.

      Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. A girl in a park in Managua, Nicaragua. The country topped the list for gains in happiness.

      Norway can be frigid. And the winters bring lots of darkness. But it's the happiest nation in world, according to the 2017 World Happiness Report.
      Denmark comes in at #2, followed by Iceland and Switzerland. Finland takes 5th place. And, it turns out, these countries have more in common than a tolerance for cold.
      Well-being is shaped by a range of factors. "All of the top countries rank highly on all the main factors found to support happiness: caring, freedom, generosity, honesty, health, income and good governance," according to the report.
      The second tier of the top ten includes the Netherlands, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Sweden (the last two tied for 9th position).
      The developing world has its share of unhappy countries. According to the report, some of the unhappiest nations in the world are Afghanistan, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Haiti.
      But there are encouraging signs in low- and middle-income countries. Cameroon, Latvia, Nicaragua and Sierra Leone, for example, are all on the list of the 20 countries reporting the highest gains in happiness.
      Meanwhile, happiness in the U.S. has slipped a bit, according to the report. "The reasons are declining social support" as well as a decline in trust — and an increased sense of corruption, write the co-editors in a summary report. In 2015, the U.S. ranked 13th. This year, it slipped to 14th.
      The report draws on survey data from 155 countries. "We ask people to think of their lives as a whole," explains report co-editor John Helliwell, an economist at the University of British Columbia who studies well-being and comparative economic growth. Each year, researchers survey 1,000 people in each country.
      Some questions are quite simple, such as: In times of trouble, do you have family and/or friends to count on? Other questions measure people's perceived levels of freedom, generosity and trust — both in each other and in their governments and businesses.
      The Nordic countries have among the most generous social safety nets. "Access to higher education, access to high-quality health services are part of it, explains Jon-Åge Øyslebø, minister of communications, cultural affairs and education at the Norwegian Embassy. (We reached out to him before he had heard about the top spot his country had earned in the new report.)
      There are also generous social support programs. For instance, new parents in Norway are eligible for nearly a year of leave with pay. "Norway is a relatively egalitarian society with regard to both to income differences and gender," Øyslebø told us. He says he thinks this is an important part of the happiness equation.
      Another factor, of course, is the economy. Overall, Norway is pretty wealthy, in part due to the natural resource of oil. But even though oil prices have declined, Norwegian level of happiness has risen, at least according to the report.
      "Absolutely there's more to it than money," Øyslebø says. Many studies have shown that after people's basic needs are met, additional income is not necessarily a path to happiness.
      So what's the value of these global ranking? After all, the survey data that they're based on are pretty crude measures. And at any given time, in any nation, some people are suffering while others thrive.
      "The reason for taking this [report] seriously," co-editor John Helliwell told us, is that it offers an alternative to thinking of "income as the measure of progress."

    • Thanks Eoin Interesting, so it didn't come from any apostates or any Witnesses just a news outlet that is not legit and appears several others were doing the same thing on many topics not just Witnesses. Irregardless of it being fake or not did you notice the increased publicity the Witnesses got from it anyway. Just goes to show that Jehovah can turn any news even bad news or unreal news to the advantage of a "witness to the nations" because now people who read this will look up the true story and see how phony the ruling by the Supreme Court was. PRAISE JAH  Matt. 10:18 says :"And you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a witness to them and the nations." and also " He will not fear bad news. His heart is steadfast, trusting in Jehovah.    Hello guest!

    • Act in Harmony With Jesus’ Loving Prayer “Father, . . . glorify your son, that your son may glorify you.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. .  Jesus talks late into the night, imparting to his disciples precious knowledge from God. Then he raises his eyes to heaven and prays: “Father, the hour has come; glorify your son, that your son may glorify you, according as you have given him authority over all flesh, that, as regards the whole number whom you have given him, he may give them everlasting life. . . . I have glorified you on the earth, having finished the work you have given me to do. So now you, Father, glorify me alongside yourself with the glory that I had alongside you before the world was.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . While on earth, Jesus worked hard to help his disciples to overcome their weaknesses. This was essential for them to complete the work that Jesus had started. “Just as you sent me forth into the world,” prays Jesus, “I also sent them forth into the world.” For them to succeed in this lifesaving work, Jesus emphasizes three vital needs.  First, he prays that his disciples be no part of Satan’s unholy world.  Second, he prays that they may be sanctified, or kept holy, by applying to themselves the truth of God’s Word.  Third, Jesus repeatedly begs that his disciples may be united in the same bond of love that exists between him and his Father.  This calls for self-examination. Each of us should ask, ‘Am I acting in harmony with Jesus’ three requests?’ By giving attention to these things, Jesus expresses optimism “that the world may believe that you sent me forth.”—Read Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . Under the influence of their religious leaders, the majority of people in the world choose to ignore the clear evidence that Jehovah has a united people who truly know him.  The same was true respecting Jesus’ day. So he concludes with these endearing words: “Righteous Father, the world has, indeed, not come to know you; but I have come to know you, and these have come to know that you sent me forth. And I have made your name known to them and will make it known, in order that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.”— Hello guest!

    • predict: "say or estimate that (a specified thing) will happen in the future or will be a consequence of something." However, although the word "prophesy" is offered as a synonym for the word "predict", I would see this definition as inadequate when relating to the word prophesy as it is used in connection with Jehovah God (Is.46:10),  or anyone to whom the words at 2Pet 1:21 correctly apply. I submit that the words of 2Pet 1:21 actually cannot apply to any of the so-called "modern day" Jehovah's Witnesses, in fact, specifically, no one since the apostle John (although it is conceivable that a Christian with the spiritual gift of prophecy may have outlived him for a short time). So, with that out of the way, and on the basis of the definition provided above, I would say in answer to the question originally posted (which is hopelessly general), quite simply "Yes. As able as anyone else is."  Now this opens up the question and may actually need it's own thread. Take care to phrase it specifically!
