Why we can’t blame God

Diane Shawe www.shortcourses.ExpertBilly Graham’s daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her “How could God let something like this happen?” (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said

“I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we’ve been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?”

In light of recent events…terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school …. the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn’t spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock’s son committed suicide).

We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said OK. Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.”

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world’s going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
fools and fanatics diane shawe
Are you laughing?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you’re not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think, of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it… no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

How safe is your business, staff, customers and assets?

Deterrence through Preparedness Security Awareness Training Courses by Diane ShaweI am frightened by what has been happening recently and would like to help as many companies and business strengthen their security awareness by keeping busy instead of being scared.

article by Diane Shawe

The main purpose of this post is to see how I could contribute by bringing to your attention three courses that I have that could help your organisation keep it’s personnel, customers and assets as safe as possible.

I want to do something, and I hope you will help me to be of use in a time when we, the general public can only defend with preparedness.

No matter how large or small your company is, you need to have a plan to ensure the security of your personnel, customers, organisation and assets. Such a plan is called A Security Awareness Preparedness Scheme.

Whether yours is five or 200 pages long, whether you have 4 or 5000+ staff the process of creating a security program will make you and your team think holistically about your business or organisation’s security. A security awareness scheme provides the framework for keeping your company at a desired security level by assessing the risks you face, deciding how you will mitigate them, and planning for how you keep the program and your security practices up to date.

With no time to waste, now is the time to make that investment by training as many of your employees to become not just aware but knowledgeable about security practices.

1. Why is security important?

Lapses in security places personnel, customers, assets, staff and property at risk.  Any responsible employer will wish to take all reasonable steps to protect the lives of its staff, customers and to protect its assets.

With the increasing serious and unanticipated security incidents recently this has also placed the provision of assistance at risk, with the danger that personnel, customers and assets, when assistance is needed in an emergency an overstretched team may be curtailed.  If personnel, customers and staff are aware of how to become more secure, they are able to do a more effective job in both awareness, prevention and bringing assistance to those who need it.

Getting the world back to work with skills we can trust

Keeping the workforce safe

Common protection measures which includes gates, guards, locks, alarms and safes are not enough to be relied on anymore.  Other protection measures are decided on according to the threat in each specific context and we are now in a new paradigm when information on the wider context will assist the working general public to become more vigilant and safe.

There may be some threats to personnel, customers and assets, organisation’s which do not arise from the local community at all.  These may include attacks from terrorist groups, whose decision-makers may be distant or even in a different country, orchestrating violence against personnel, customers and assets, and other organisation’s for political reasons.  If so, protection measures will need to take these threats into account and a higher degree of protection is necessary if the work is to continue.  In this case managers will usually consider whether the work should stop, either temporarily or permanently.

2.  Deterrence vs Awareness

Deterrence is a further security approach used by some organisations, notably the police and the military.  They deter attack by threatening retaliation against anyone who attacks them.  This is not an option available to personnel, customers, and localised organisations, whose principles forbid them to attack anyone, or to threaten attack.

The sole possible exception is when personnel, customers and organisation’s can become aware through training to heighten their levels of awareness.

1.2       Risk = Threat x Vulnerability

You may be able to do nothing about the level of threat around you, but you can probably do a great deal to reduce your level of vulnerability in two main ways:  To avoid getting into an accident for instance by:

  • Reducing the chances of an incident happening (e.g. by driving slowly, improving locks, or introducing a neighbourhood watch system)
  • Reducing the impact of an incident (e.g. by wearing seatbelts, or limiting the amount of cash held in the safe)

By reducing your vulnerability, you reduce the risk that the threat will become reality and have a serious impact on you and your business.  A major part of good security management is reducing vulnerability in every way possible.

Bad habits that damage Hair Extensions by Diane Shawe


article by Diane Shawe M.Ed

There are common habits we knowing do that damages our hair. For instance like using a flat iron at the highest possible tempreture that will surely harm your hair.

Less common however is ponytails, super tight buns or braids, the sun, birth control pills, hair extension glues and hair extension clips and micro rings made from Nickel.

Let’s first talk about using flat irons or curling irons. These man-made styling equipment are very drying to hair extensions and not to mention, harmful too hair. This is because the temperature and heat in the irons are to unreasonably hot for the hair so you end up cooking your delicate hair whilst drying it out at the same time.

using hot iron damages hair extensionsHair ironing will damage the state of your already process hair extensions. It does not just dry the hair from head to tip, it makes your hair become frizzy and hard to manage especially if the hair is blended you end up melting the synthetic bonded in with the real hair which become crinkly. Once hair extension becomes too damaged, it is very hard to rejuvenate them back as they were already ‘dead hair’.

Trimming or cutting the damaged hair will work, but then you end up losing the length of your hair extension which would have cost you a lot of money to install in the first place. Doing hair treatments is crucial to hydrating the hair.  Hair treatments such as oil treatments are good for your natural hair but can end up making hair extensions heavy, clumpy and then eventually matting by themselves.

Hair extension Clip-in can also damage your hair if left in for over 5 hours a day

Diet also plays a role in the health of your hair too. Eating too much food that has little or no beneficial nutrition to your hair will cause your hair to be brittle and weak. Foods with good source of omega-3 is good for your hair whilst your hair extensions require a good non oil based leave in conditioner twice a day to keep it hydrated.
