Conductance and resistance are reciprocals

In the hydraulic analogy, current flowing through a wire (or resistor) is like water flowing through a pipe, and the voltage drop across the wire is like the pressure drop that pushes water through the pipe. Conductance is proportional to how much flow occurs for a given pressure, and resistance is proportional to how much pressure is required to achieve a given flow. (Conductance and resistance are reciprocals.)

The voltage drop (i.e., difference between voltages on one side of the resistor and the other), not the voltage itself, provides the driving force pushing current through a resistor. In hydraulics, it is similar: The pressure difference between two sides of a pipe, not the pressure itself, determines the flow through it. For example, there may be a large water pressure above the pipe, which tries to push water down through the pipe. But there may be an equally large water pressure below the pipe, which tries to push water back up through the pipe. If these pressures are equal, no water flows. (In the image at right, the water pressure below the pipe is zero.)

The resistance and conductance of a wire, resistor, or other element is mostly determined by two properties:

geometry (shape), and material
Geometry is important because it is more difficult to push water through a long, narrow pipe than a wide, short pipe. In the same way, a long, thin copper wire has higher resistance (lower conductance) than a short, thick copper wire.

Materials are important as well. A pipe filled with hair restricts the flow of water more than a clean pipe of the same shape and size. Similarly, electrons can flow freely and easily through a copper wire, but cannot flow as easily through a steel wire of the same shape and size, and they essentially cannot flow at all through an insulator like rubber, regardless of its shape. The difference between copper, steel, and rubber is related to their microscopic structure and electron configuration, and is quantified by a property called resistivity.

In addition to geometry and material, there are various other factors that influence resistance and conductance, such as temperature; see below.

Does this sound similar to what happens to a human when they try to live their way of life on earth without channeling the energy of the Universe?

Nature vs Nurture

The nature vs. nurture dialogue is a cultural and logical journey made possible with the help of scientific  and spiritual study about whether tribal culture, behavior, social communication is primarily the cause of nature or nurture. Nature, by both sides give definition by journeying into genetics and hormonal influences. Nurture, by both sides give definition by journeying into environment and experience. Wholeness in the dialogue manifest evidence as we move through time, and not taking snapshots of intermediate slices of time and space.

What man seeks is utter freedom, endless happiness and zero pain. In other words, everything.

Eashoa knew. He fulfilled the Scriptures and sent out his disciples into the world to preach about a spiritual kingdom — life everlasting, outside the realm of the visible world; to teach about the Scriptures and how they were fulfilled through his life and mission; and ultimately to give us peace in understanding how the universe works, how to live and never lose heart.

Eashoa knew that his teachings would be misinterpreted by many, but that they would be accessible to those who didn’t use them for self-aggrandizement and personal profit. All I can do is to translate the Scriptures as I find them. I can’t reconcile all the doubters to one set of beliefs. I can only do my best as a translator. I’m satisfied with that.

Eashoa knew everything. His birth, teachings, death and resurrection were the only proof humanity needed to find meaning in life. He picked a narrow sliver in the timeline of the universe to place the historical mission that would make sense of all the history and philosophy of the world. He knew that there were great kings and empires such as those of the Pharaohs, the Babylonians, the Ashurai, the Greeks and the Romans. He knew many others would come and go. He knew of the great philosophers and scientists of all the ages before and the ages that would come. You may not believe it, because you might be thinking how could Eashoa have known everything?

Eashoa knew everything because the best of the scientists have to offer is, “We don’t know.” Man does not understand what gave him birth, what happiness is, why there is pain, and why he must die. (I refer to man not as a Chauvinist, because women know more — they know about birth anyway, and a few other things I don’t wish to go into now.) Eashoa is the only one who has explained this aspect of human consciousness: a seed is nothing more than the genetic basis of what the plant needs to grow out of. So is the human being nothing more than the forty-six chromosomes that make up his or her genesis. The seed and the fetus are the basis of life as we know it. Where did this knowledge come from?

The universe is made up of dark and light elements, negative and positive forces, and the observable world for us is an endless mystery that most of us don’t even care to grapple with; we are so concerned with our own little world, and Eashoa knew that. Ultimately the human being isn’t interested in a scientific explanation, but an opportunity to seek some measure of happiness within the confines of the human culture where he or she lives.

Eashoa knew that. He came to the world two thousand years ago and answered all the questions humanity would ever ask. The questions and the answers are here in the Ancient Aramaic Scriptures. I want you to learn to say “Eashoa”. You say, “Jesus.” It’s Eashoa — not Ye-shoo-wa — Ee-sho. I transliterates it Eashoa. It’s not asking too much, and maybe it’s not all that important, since we all know who we’re talking about. Do we not?  Read more…

Balance the negative moment! What will your life be?

I find myself at this time constantly re-thinking my life, present, past and future ~ what security means; my priorities in life; friendships. Looking at life from a wider viewpoint always helps to gain clarity – Would you like to experience a state of grace clear?

Clear from all the haunting memories in your history that “you continue to cling”, thinking your experience is what makes you who you are?We are going through a BIG paradigm shift in this first quarter of 2016. In the message below my guides speak of ‘the big re-think of life that planet earth is experiencing’. I find myself at this time constantly re-thinking my life, present, past and future ~ what security means; my priorities in life; friendships. Looking at life from a wider viewpoint always helps to gain clarity – cultivating witness consciousness so that we can see when and why we are malfunctioning.

In the light of this re-set point, the entire population is in a state of grace, floating like a ship in the “what’s going on” moment.

Our purpose is, as always, right on pitch with the musical “Hum” of our single society. Frequency matters. The frequency matters because of the blur of the high-speed chase we all are making for the exit.

Could it be we are using energy to learn what we really already know?
Could it be we are all ONE and are just unaware?

Yes, there are the slight minority of transient spirits that have never found their resting place. Just as Judas never found a place of repentance. Yet, for three solid years the Grand Manifestation is right there in front of his eyes and he just could not leave his tormenting past, to enjoy one moment of the present.

Like all of us at one season, about, refuses to live in the precious present, though its beautifully arrange is setting before us.

table-salads

The easiest way to meet this is to bring good news. When you feel encouraged, hopeful, reassured, this leads to a lifting of the Light factor in you. We will focus on the good news, which is always.

 

The beauty and intelligence of women. The masculine leadership of men. The discipline and care of children. All seemingly reinvented in cycles of time. These eternal realities are forever settling in the conscious mind of humans.

You are always on path in your journey. All of the universe sees to it and serves us what is available. You were born of a human women. Experiences of your childhood matter, but these moments that do not exist have no effect on your journey. You are the manifest free will. You choose your thoughts. Your emotions have a distinct challenge. Surviving is in harmony with being chauffeured through the eyes of love. You always choose to look at light, not shadows.

baby sleepingHowever, you always challenge to serve and not rule. For in your serving you rule. You design  is to blossom in spring and fold in fall. Rest in winter and enjoy the fun in summer. Your understanding is blooming now. You are in a season of shuffle.  This precious present finds a way to allow the nags to flow down into the earth and return in resurrection of strength.

‘There is forever enough for everyone.’ Forget you’re assuming needs. There are none. There are duties but, without needs. There are resources all beneath our feet. Knowledge covers the earth. Your survival, health and happiness is a given from the Grand Master.

– as the truth become clear to you, your path before you opens like a new gate. “go in.”

 

You are one. We are all one. We are  from the dust of an immeasurable One Universe of matter and spirit. We are the manifestation. You can put away the strain and stress of attempting to “go to” and relax where you are. He is there, She is there, We are there, and most importantly  you are there. Joy is of the one-heart that regulates and governs the entire universe, but love is the energy that give it light in itself.  Truly, love is all. And so it is. And so it will be.

Is it possible? To be misunderstood?

Is it possible to read an article and misunderstand the writer’s intention?

It is important for readers to recognise that behind every text is a writer, and that the writer has a purpose or reason for writing and a particular point of view. Not, necessarily an “evil or good” intention or agenda.

Before we answer this question. May we consider that one of the greatest teachers of all times, was completely misunderstood?

“Born in Bolivia, Jamie Escalanteis best known for teaching mathematics at Garfield High School in East Los Angeles, California. Though they had generally been poor performers, Escalante pushed his students towards success through his dedication, passionate style and expertise in the material. In the early 1980s, was able to get most of his Advanced Placement (A.P.) calculus students to pass the A.P. exam. His tremendous success was significant enough to bring accusations of cheating, though retesting of students proved their capabilities. Escalante was memorably portrayed by Edward James Olmos in the 1988 film Stand and Deliver.” writes Jeff Calareso

Jeff Calareso is what I call, “misunderstood.” Proof of this “misunderstood” is the sentence highlighted about. May I repeat this for emphasis?

His tremendous success was significant enough to bring accusations of cheating, though retesting of students proved their capabilities.

Imagine. Working thousands of hours, unselfishly, to help his students which would never passed any Advanced Placement calculus test, actually pass the test with excellent grades. After all of that, being “misunderstood?” 


“This book is written with the sole objective of helping the reader achieve a happy, satisfying, and worthwhile life.” — Norman Vincent Peale

The book is “The Power of Positive Thinking”  I find it incredible that this book was written 60 year ago. The cadence of Dr. Peale’s voice is reminiscent of that bygone era but the wisdom of his words still resonate today. If this book were revised for today, I wonder what examples would be used, if Dr. Peale were around today I wonder what additional insights he would give. It’s a great read and will likely still hold true in another 50 years, writes Rick Yvanovich

Who is Rev. Peale?

In 1922 he was ordained in the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was assigned a small congregation in Berkeley, Rhode Island. Two years later he moved to Brooklyn, New York where he established himself as a gifted communicator so that in only three years he grew a church from 40 to 900 members. He spent a few years at another Methodist congregation in Syracuse, New York, before joining the Reformed Church in America so he could pastor Marble Collegiate Church, one of the oldest Protestant congregations in America. When he arrived, this church had around 600 members; upon his departure 52 years later it had 5,000.

While he was at Marble, he teamed up with a Freud-trained psychiatrist, Dr. Smiley Blanton, to begin a religious-psychiatric clinic in the church basement. They wanted to respond to the psychological needs of their congregation and especially the deep-rooted effects of the Great Depression. In 1951 this clinic was organized into the American Foundation of Religion and Psychiatry, with Peale as president and Blanton as executive director.

Peale spread his teaching through a variety of media. While serving the church in Syracuse he founded a radio program called “The Art of Living,” and it would broadcast his sermons for 54 years. By 1952 he and his wife were also on the new medium of television, featured on the show “What’s Your Trouble?” In 1945, along with his wife Ruth, and Raymond Thornburg, a local businessman, he founded Guideposts. What was at first a weekly four-page leaflet evolved to a monthly inspirational magazine that would soon have 2 million subscribers.

During his lifetime, Peale authored 46 books, and the most successful by far was The Power of Positive Thinking. Published in 1952, it stayed on the New York Times list of bestsellers for 186 consecutive weeks and sold 5 million copies, making it one of the best selling religious books of all-time.  1984 President Ronald Reagan awarded him the highest civilian honor in the United States, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for his contributions to theology.

Peale retired as senior pastor in 1984 and died of a stroke on December 24, 1993 in Pawling, New York. He was ninety-five years old. President Bill Clinton honored him with these words: “While the Clinton family and all Americans mourn his loss, there is some poetry in his passing on a day when the world celebrates the birth of Christ, an idea that was central to Dr. Peale’s message and Dr. Peale’s work. He will be missed.”

Imagine. During Rev. Peale’s lifetime and even now, his writings are “misunderstood”. Some of his critics say, Yet as a Christian minister he denied that God was a being, saying “Who is God? Some theological being? He is so much greater than theology. God is vitality. God is life. God is energy. As you breathe God in, as you visualize His energy, you will be reenergized!” Tim Challies

Imagine. Living in Queens and not being influenced by Norman V. Peale. Might be almost impossible.

The Bronx, a different story: There were many individuals I especially remember. One was our Super, Junior. He was either Irish or Polish. I never knew his real name. He was a strapping 6’ 3”, built like an ox. His hair was straight and forever dangling on his forehead. Sweat was always pouring off him. He had one missing front tooth. He always wore the same outfit, a white T-shirt with dark trousers. I never forgot the day he came to disconnect a faulty radiator. It was at least a twelve-rib, cast-iron monster. It had to weigh a ton. He actually carried the thing out of the apartment with little effort, almost like he was cradling a baby. He replaced it with another radiator later that day. My mother always gave him a shot of whiskey at the end of every job. I guess she figured it was a good way to tip him.

Junior would be everywhere throughout the building and around the grounds, fixing things, cleaning, putting out the garbage, and filling other tin cans with coal residue from the furnace. No heat? Just bang on the pipes and Junior would oblige. Next you’d hear the pings and hisses as the steam heat came through the pipes. On certain days our dumbwaiter bell would ring and I’d run to the kitchen and place our bags of garbage on the open wooden elevator. Junior would sometimes shout up the shaft and we’d ring our bell to let him know he could haul it down. The contraption was hand operated with a rope.

Junior was a great guy and a topnotch super. It was strictly a one-man operation. Looking back, I don’t know how he handled all the work in such a large apartment house.

Joe Baker owned the local hardware store on 183rd Street and Bassford Avenue. His store was not only dimly lit but cluttered with all sorts of hardware items. It was difficult walking down the aisles, the merchandise was spilling over the counters. There was Joe behind the cash register , a tall man with horn-rimmed glasses and a mustache. He knew where everything was and pulled it off the shelves in a jiffy without the rest of the stuff falling off. He had a bad habit of short-changing unsuspecting customers, especially us kids. I was warned about him early on and recounted my change before I left the store.

Barney’s was a local soda fountain joint on 183rd just up the block from Joe Baker’s. There were several Barney’s over the years, but one in particular made the greatest egg creams, not to mention the usual ice cream sodas and milk shakes.

Jerry ran the local deli on the northeast corner of 184th street. He was a friendly short fellow with a round face and a bald head. Everyone in the neighborhood owed him money, even Ozok the Bum, who was always in his store. Jerry never seemed to mind. He’d write the debts in his black ledger and go on to the next customer. I never knew you could buy groceries on the lay-away plan! Many times he’d tally the bill on the brown grocery bag…a real lost art! He had a nickname for all the kids on the block. Mine was “the little gigolo.”

“The Art of Living,” Peale’s bestseller. Donald Trump “The Art of the Deal”. Do you see Peale’s influence?

Donald Trump is synonymous with Fifth Avenue, but to understand what helped to shape the billionaire, people who know Trump say: look across the East River.

“He is still a Queens guy. He sounds like a guy from Queens,” Gwenda Blair, author of “Donald Trump: Master Apprentice.” “He doesn’t have the sort of—certainly doesn’t present the kind of polish and refinement and old money of Upper East Side New York.

Trump grew up in a 23-room colonial, in leafy Jamaica Estates. He was one of five children. The family had a cook and chauffer, but neighbors say the Trumps were hardly showy.

“I knew that they were fairly quiet. They were fairly strict,” says Jamaica Estates Association president Martha Taylor.

Trump’s father, Fred, built apartment houses in Queens and Brooklyn. He demanded his children work hard, often bringing them to his job.

Fred and his wife Mary gave Donald a sense of self-confidence, but that brashness also could get Donald into trouble.

Trump attended the Kew-Forest private school in Forest Hills school until he was 13, when his parents, worried about his behavior, sent him to a more disciplined setting.

His days at the New York Military Academy upstate were regimented.

Friends say he excelled at baseball, played football and basketball.

The future beauty peagent maestro also was named “Ladies Man.”

Ted Levine was Trump’s high school roommate.

“I had to be better than my father. He had to be better than his father. We were sent here to be the best of the best, and we knew what our job was,” Levine says.

Still, at home, Trump’s reputation endured. Journalist Joyce Purnick grew up nearby and says her mother had strong opinions of him.

“Whenever she would encounter Donald Trump—and apparently it was quite often—he was tooling around in his car. He would break the speed limits. He would go through stop signs. She would come back all angry and say, ‘Stay away from that guy,'” Purnick says.

But those who knew him insist there were signs that Trump would make it big.

“He was well-positioned. He was good looking. He had a lot going for him,” Levine says.

Blair says that while Donald was brash and confident, he also had a chip on his shoulder from his years living in Queens.

It would all fall into place. He went to the Wharton School, entered the family business, became a billionaire, and now, a White House candidate.

Jericho may be the Oldest Continually Inhabited City in the World

Jericho, Palestinian Territories When did the earliest inhabitants settle? 9,000 BC The world’s oldest continually-inhabited city, according to our sources, archaeologists have unearthed the remains of 20 successive settlements in Jericho, dating back 11,000 years. The city is found near the Jordan River in the West Bank and is today home to around 20,000 people. Can I go? The Foreign Office advises not . For the record, Europe’s other oldest cities include Lisbon (ca. 1000 BC), Rome (753 BC), Corfu (ca. 700 BC) and Mantua (ca. 500 BC). London was founded in 43 AD.

When we read,”The Aramaic language was first used in Ashur, Nimrud and Nineveh, from 800 BC. I studied the Ancient Aramaic language from the pictographic stage, through cuneiform (symbolic writing) up to modern Aramaic. My translation work is authentic. I have spent most of my life studying it. This has become my life’s work.” By Victor Alexander it does not even come close to the beginning of Jericho.

We need to enlarge our energy sphere to include every living human being that ever lived. Otherwise, we will not be able to comprehend our Species.

A New Look at the Archaeological Evidence,” authored by Dr. Bryant G. Wood. Dr. Wood is a visiting professor in the department of Near Eastern studies at the University of Toronto. He has served in responsible supervisory positions on several archaeological digs in Palestine. In this scholarly article, Wood contends:

When we compare the archaeological evidence at Jericho with the Biblical narrative describing the Israelite destruction of Jericho, we find a quite remarkable agreement (1990, 53;

The Bible indicates that Jericho was a strongly fortified city. It was surrounded by a “wall,” and access to the fortress could only be obtained through the city “gate” (Joshua 2:5,7,15; 6:5,20). Biblical Archaeology Review notes:

The city’s outer defenses consisted of a stone revetment wall [some fifteen feet high] at the base of the tell [hill] that held in place a high, plastered rampart. Above the rampart on top of the tell was [the remnant of] a mudbrick wall [about eight feet high at one point] which served as Jericho’s city wall proper (Wood 1990, 46).

Jericho was to be a city “devoted” to God, hence, the Hebrews were to confiscate the silver and gold, and the vessels of brass and iron for Jehovah’s treasury. However, they were to take no personal possessions (6:17-19). The archaeological evidence confirms this. As indicated earlier, a considerable amount of grain was found in Jericho. Grain, in biblical times, was exceedingly valuable, being frequently used as a monetary exchange (see 1 Kings 5:11). Wish to read entire article…Click Here
