first_imgCharismaNews 18 August 2014This is a game-changer. Talk about “an old wives’ tale.” You’ve heard it said that 1) 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, 2) most marriages that do happen to make it are, nonetheless, unhappy, and 3) Christians are just as likely to divorce as nonbelievers.These claims, long understood to be research-based facts, never quite sat right with me. Still, admittedly, while these assertions do swim upstream against the flow of both our common sense and our common experience, we have, nevertheless, accepted them (present company included) as valid because—well, you know, because “social science …”As it turns out, your gut was right. It’s all nonsense—urban legend of a sort propagated, most likely, by the same post-modernists who today seek to similarly undermine the God-designed institution of legitimate man-woman marriage by redefining it into oblivion.Shaunti Feldhahn is a Harvard-trained researcher and author. In her recently released book, The Good News About Marriage: Debunking Discouraging Myths about Marriage and Divorce, Feldhahn details groundbreaking findings from an extensive eight-year study on marriage and divorce. Among other things, her research found:◦The actual divorce rate has never gotten close to 50 percent.◦Those who attend church regularly have a significantly lower divorce rate than those who don’t.◦Most marriages are happy.◦Simple changes make a big difference in most marriage problems.◦Most remarriages succeed. read more

The young woman was completely nude at the time, according to her mother, who pursued Smith as he fled the store and tore out of the parking lot.Smith later admitted to investigators that the transgender changing room policy gave him access to record several young women undressing, according to police records.“Just because the man puts on the dress does not mean he is no longer sexually attracted to women,” Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth, told LifeSiteNews.Smith said that he made the videos for the “same reason men go online to look at pornography.”READ MORE: read more

first_img Share PORT-OF-PRINCE, Haiti (CMC) – Haiti is set to vaccinate 200,000 people against cholera starting in August, with support from the Pan American Health Organization(PAHO)/World Health Organization.The campaign will be carried out in three areas chosen by Haiti’s Ministry of Public Health and Population because they are considered high-risk zones.“Vaccination is an important complementary measure in the fight against cholera,” said PAHO Assistant Director Francisco Becerra.“But the long-term objective is to eliminate cholera, which will require sustained improvements in access to water and sanitation for the population.”PAHO’s representative in Haiti, Jean-Luc Poncelet, said the vaccination is one of a series of measures implemented by Haitian health authorities with support from PAHO and other international partners.Other key measures include timely treatment for people sickened by the disease, improved access to potable water and adequate sanitation, the promotion of community participation and strengthened epidemiological surveillance.PAHO will oversee the storage and distribution of the vaccines as well as training, supervision, monitoring and evaluation of the vaccination campaign.Although Haiti’s cholera epidemic has slowed considerably, over 6,000 cases and 51 deaths were reported between January and July 6.Caribbean Media Corporation Sharing is caring!

first_img Press Association Hull manager Steve Bruce believes English football should rally behind its European representatives after his side’s clash with Arsenal was put back a day to assist Chelsea. Jose Mourinho’s side were initially due to play Sunderland in a televised fixture on Sunday but, with the away leg of their Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, had that fixture moved forward a day. As a result Hull versus Arsenal was shifted into the Sunday TV slot, a move that was met with an element of dissatisfaction by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. center_img The Frenchman said broadcasting decisions “don’t look very rational” and that his side had never been assisted in such a fashion. But Bruce is happy to do his bit to promote the English game and give Chelsea the best chance of reaching the final. “I think we should do everything we can to help Chelsea,” he said. “We don’t do that often enough. When it gets to this stage we should help the big teams. It’s difficult in our league. “If we can help Chelsea I have no problems whatsoever and I didn’t when they asked me. “We want Chelsea to get the final, let’s give them every opportunity. “To ask them to play Sunday and Tuesday? Let’s give them all the help they can get.” last_img read more

first_imgTHE Jamaica Tallawahs are hopeful that Andre Russell will be able to return to the team in time for tonight’s clash with the unbeaten Guyana Amazon Warriors at Sabina Park.In the 14th over their match against the St Lucia Zouks last week Wednesday, Russell failed to pull a short ball from Hardus Viljoen and was hit.The ball struck Russell’s helmet near the right ear and he collapsed in a heap before he was stretchered off and taken to the hospital where scans showed there was no significant damage other than a haematoma.He missed subsequent matches against Trinbago Knight Riders and Barbados Tridents but Ronnie Sarwan, Tallawahs’ assistant coach, said the signs are there that Russell could return to action today.“We hope so. The good thing about it is that he has been going through his testing and everything seems to be okay at this point. We just have to wait and see what happens today and tomorrow,” Sarwan said while addressing media at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston yesterday morning.Sarwan believes having Russell back would help the Tallawahs put their best team on the field against an in-form Warriors side who have won their four games so far.He said the arrival of Jade Dernbach and Afghanistan leg-spinner Zahir Khan and with Russell back, Tallawahs will be able to build on the momentum of their first win of the season on Sunday.“Jade and Khan have put us in a position that makes us much more balanced from when we started the tournament, so once we have young Springer ready and Russell ready to go we have our best eleven,” Sarwan said.

first_imgBarcelona did not have everything their own way and Levante almost spoiled the party when they twice went close to equalising in the second half.Jose Luis Morales broke clear on the left edge on the edge of the box only to fire into the stands. Then at the death Enis Bardhi’s shot hit the woodwork and it bounced into the hands of Barca goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen on the line.Such has been Barcelona’s recent La Liga dominance – this is their fourth Spanish title in five years and Messi’s 10th overall – that determining whether this season will be heralded as a glorious one, or simply a good one, will depend on their performance in other competitions.The defending champions will doubtless have taken satisfaction from delivering the title in front of their home fans for the first time since 2010; their last four titles have been won away or without playing.They did so with three games to spare and in doing so closed the gap on Real Madrid’s record of 33 La Liga titles to seven.However, it is the prospect of a treble, featuring the Champions League and Copa del Rey, which will now command their serious attention.Their performance against Levante was far from a vintage one and the celebrations of Barcelona’s players when they lifted the trophy after full-time were relatively conservative.The Catalans have not reached a Champions League final since 2015, when they last won the treble, and the focus will now switch to the first leg against Liverpool at the Nou Camp. They also face Valencia in the Copa del Rey final on May 25.In Messi’s absence, attacking trio Luis Suarez, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele carried the threat but without Messi’s talismanic presence they drew a blank. It was not until Messi – La Liga’s top scorer with 34 goals this season – came on as a second-half substitute that the home side sparked into life.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Barcelona wrapped up their 26th La Liga title with a sluggish victory over Levante yesterday, thanks to a goal from second-half substitute Lionel Messi.Ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg with Liverpool, Messi began the game on the bench. The Argentina forward came on at the interval following a goalless first half and scored just after the hour.He latched on to Arturo Vidal’s header and beat two defenders before stroking the ball past Aitor Fernandez.last_img read more
