That Big Raid on the 7-Eleven Stores

7-eleven_logo

Federal indictments naming eight men and one woman allege that since 2000 they employed more than 50 immigrants who didn’t have permission to be in the U.S. They tried to conceal the immigrants’ employment by stealing the identities of about two dozen people — including those of the child, the dead and a Coast Guard cadet — and submitting the information to the 7-Eleven payroll department.

When 7-Eleven’s headquarters sent the wages for distribution, the employers stole “significant portions” of the workers’ pay, authorities said. The defendants also forced the workers to live in houses they owned and pay them rent in cash, they added.

FEMA Seeking Subcontractors to Provide “Temporary Camp Services”

For the better part of two decades FEMA detention camps were believed to be a figment of tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists. As more information over the years has been made available through alternative news researchers like Alex Jones in his full length documentary Police State 4 and former governor Jesse Venutra’s FEMA camp exposé, it is becoming increasingly clear that the government has been taking steps for quite some time to ensure a rapid and effective response in the event of a national disaster or U.S. military deployment on American soil.

As many of our readers know, the U.S. Senate recently passed the National Defense Authorization Act, which, it has been argued, authorizes the establishment of domestic war zones and the subsequent detention of those who are suspected of engaging in terrorist-related activity – including, arguably, U.S. citizens. What you may not know, however, is that just days after the passage of the act reports are surfacing that the Federal Emergency Management Agency, under the auspices of the Department of Homeland Security, is requisitioning private contractors to provide services for government, defense & infrastructure pertaining specifically to FEMA activities with respect to emergency services.

Quotes From Bruce Lee

“Those who are unaware they are walking in darkness will never seek the light.”

“Never waste energy on worries or negative thoughts, all problems are brought into existence -drop them.”

“The “moment” has no yesterday or tomorrow. It is not the result of thought and therefore has no time.”

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough: we must do.”

“Learning is never cumulative, it is a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end.”

“The measure  of the moral worth of a man is his happiness. The better the man, the more happiness. Happiness is the synonym of well-being”

” Real living is living for others.”

“Defeat is a state of mind; no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.”

“A goal is not always meant to be reached. It often serves simply as something to aim at.”

“Because one does not want to be disturbed, to be made uncertain, he establishes a pattern of conduct, of thought, a pattern of relationship to man etc. Then he becomes a slave to the patter and takes the pattern to be the real thing.”

“Zen is not “attained” by mirror-wiping mediation, but by “self-forgetfulness in the existential ‘present’ of life here and now.” We do not “come”, we “are.” Don’t strive to become, but be.”

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”

“To grow, to discover, we need involvement which is something I experience everyday, sometimes good, sometimes frustrating.”

Weekly House Cleaning Schedule Template & Checklist Chart, Printable

No More Frantic Cleaning – Your house will be reasonably clean all the time if you stick to your cleaning schedule.

Share Responsibilities – I usually end up doing all the cleaning in my house simply because I know what has been done and what needs to be done. If there is a posted schedule, people can be assigned tasks or pick up tasks that haven’t been done yet.

Less Stress – When my house isn’t clean, I always feel as though I have something I should be doing, which makes it hard to relax. If I follow a schedule, I can relax once I have done everything on my checklist for the day.

Greater Efficiency – If you don’t have your tasks planned out, time is wasted figuring out what to do. With a schedule, everything is mapped out for you to get started. Not only that, your schedule can be tailored to your family members’ strengths and availability.

Fight Procrastination – I procrastinate cleaning for a variety of reasons

Scientists predictions

Scientists make predictions, and predicting the future is far more valuable than explaining the past.

Ask a physicist what will happen if you fire a projectile like this in that direction, and she’ll know. Ask a chemist what happens if you mix x and y, and you’ll get the right answer. Even quantum mechanics mechanics can give you probabilities that work out in the long run.

Scented Candles Too Girly

Mancans was born out of that idea. These no-fuss wax blocks with wicks are housed in a used Campbell’s soup can, and they all smell like something the grimy, sweaty, good old fashioned American male can enjoy. Hart has sold over 500 candles, the first proceeds of which went to his new racing bike.
