Brutalne istine o Strelčevima: Lako opijaju, a često su toksični – AstroZabava – Zodijak

Od 23. novembra počinje vladavina Strelca. Nije tajna da su među najprivlačnijim pripadnicima Zodijaka, a to i te kako koriste, da ne kažemo zloupotebljavaju. I sa njima vam je zagarantovan čitav spektar najrazličitijih emocija, stalna iznenađenja i mnogo strasti. AstroZabava | prva.rs | petak, 23.11.2018. | 17:00 Tweet Podeli foto: Thinkstock
Nedosledni su
Prošle nedelje želeli su da nauče da programiraju. Ove nedelje, ipak, primamljivije im je da uzgajaju svoju baštu.
Oni žele mnogo toga, nedostaje im samo vremena. Ali su zaista svestrani, pa ako volite Strelca, volećete i mnoštvo njegovih ličnosti. Bar bi tako trebalo.
Uvek se šale
Nikada neće propustiti priliku da se dobro našale – i na svoj, ali ipak radije na tuđ račun. Ubaciće se čak i u tuđe interne šale i preuzeće ih potpuno.
Njihov smisao za humor je uvrnut. Toliko da treba dobro da razmislite možete li da se nosite sa time.
Nisu baš fleksibilni
Teško da ćete uspeti u 17:45 da ih ubedite da u 18h idu s vama na večeru, ako su već isplanirali da pravo s posla odu kući i gledaju TV. Veoma vole vreme koje provode sami, uživaju u vezi sa sobom, tako da nema baš mnogo prostora za ubacivanje, osim ako vam oni sami to dozvole, tj. ako zaslužite. Nezavisni su i ne očekujte da će prilagođavati svoj raspored da bi se uklopili sa vama.
Filozofiraju mnogo
Baš mnogo. Zanimaju ih uglavnom duboke teme, pa sa njima preskočite neobavezno ćaskanje.
Koje su vam najdublje i najintimnije želje? O čemu budni sanjate? Koji su vam najveći strahovi i zbog čega?
Ako se zabavljate sa Strelčevima, pripremite se na ovakva pitanja i bolje bi vam bilo da u njima uživate i imate spreman odgovor.
Ukoliko vas ovo plaši – niste spremni za vezu sa Strelcem.
Nesmotreni su
Da, umeju da ne paze baš na tuđa osećanja, ne razmišljaju mnogo unapred, i to ume da im se obije o glavu.
Ipak, oni žive u trenutku i koje god da iskustvo imaju, za njih je pozitivno.
Veoma brzo se oporavljaju od raskida
Umeju da odbace ljude kao krpe i nastave dalje, te da se više nikada i ne osvrnu. Nikada neće biti u vezi sa nekim za koga smatraju da mu nije dovoljno stalo, ili ko im nameće svoje stavove i mišljenja.
Strelčevi imaju veoma izražen osećaj za ispravno i pogrešno, a ukoliko se to ne poklapa sa vašim stavovima, brzo se ugase.
Uprkos svemu, optimisti su
Strelčevi su slobodni i jedini savet koji će poslušati jeste onaj koji bi i sami sebi dali: “Sledi svoje srce!”
Kada se zaljubite u Strelca, budite spremni da će vas uvek grejati njihovo sunce, ali ono i te kako ume da bude zubato. Možda će vas to nervirati, ali oni zapravo u svemu pokušavaju da vide nešto dobro. Čak i u svađama, a biće ih i te kako!

Prominent Syrian media activist shot dead in Idlib

Sense of an ending for Syria’s war on Idlib front line
“He was very much aware that he should not expect to die quietly in his bed,” French journalist Nicolas Henin told the BBC.
Henin, who described Fares as “one of the most impressive leaders of the Syrian revolution”, explained that even with the constant threats, his friend had refused to carry a weapon.
“It was nothing for himself and because his fight was just dedicated to the people, and to the welfare of all groups, all society,” he said.
“I think he believed that that was his best protection.” Defiance
It was not just Fares the militants took issue with. The radio station – with its music and female presenters – also angered the groups which overran the town and surrounding area.
Four years ago, when IS had a presence in Idlib province, the station’s office was raided by militants. In 2016, Fares was detained by the Nusra Front, the former al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria.
The Hayat Tahrir al-Sham alliance (HTS), which currently controls most of Idlib province, had ordered Radio Fresh to stop broadcasting music.

He was stubborn and dismissive, he would simply answer; pic.twitter.com/edymFcBIkC Report End of Twitter post by @FADELABDULGHANY
The station’s response was to play long sequences of other sounds, such as tweeting birds, clucking chickens and bleating goats.
“They tried to force us to stop playing music on air,” Fares told the BBC in 2017 . “So we started to play animals in the background as a kind of sarcastic gesture against them.”
Later, the station began to introduce further defiant sounds including bongs from London’s Big Ben clock, ticking sounds, ringing explosions and chanting football fans.
Another group, the now-dissolved Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, once instructed the radio station to take women off the air. Instead of complying, Fares told the BBC’s Mike Thomson about his creative solution to get round the issue.
“We simply put their voices through a computer software programme which makes them sound like men,” he said. ‘Let them kill me’
But, despite these battles, Fares never forgot the reason he had first gone out on to the streets back in 2011.
Up until the end, he remained a vocal critic of President Bashar al-Assad, the man who has clung to power through seven years of civil war.
In his final Facebook post, Fares described a protest in Kafranbel on 5 October calling for the end of Mr Assad’s reign.
“The people of Kafranbel are in Huriyah [Freedom] Square and voices are chanting: The people want the downfall of the regime. We started this in 2011 and we are continuing on. Our loyalty to the martyrs and detainees has increased our determination.”
In the end, he did not live to see the end of the war. Radio Fresh’s Facebook page posted a graphic photo of Fares’ body on 23 November, along with an image of the body of Hammoud Juneid, another activist who was shot dead.
Dozens of people gathered for their funerals the same day as news of his death began to filter out to the wider world, leading to an outpouring of grief on social media from activists and international journalists. Skip Twitter post by @DRovera Don’t want to believe @RaedFares4 has been killed. One of the few peaceful pro-democracy activists from the early days of the uprising who was still in #Syria .Tireless, uncompromisingly principled, good humored, big-hearted and much more. A huge loss. #KafraNbel . RIP my friend pic.twitter.com/XjWMhnfu3S Report End of Twitter post by @DRovera
Among the tributes was one from Fadel Abdul Ghany, founder and chairman of the Syrian Network for Human Rights, who revealed he had asked Fares to leave.
Fares, however, was not to be moved.
“What can they do? Kill me?” he asked. “Well let them kill me. I’m not going to leave and leave them the country.” Related Topics

At Oxford, Elder Holland lays out Latter-day Saint theology before religious scholars, students

At Oxford, Elder Holland lays out Latter-day Saint theology before religious scholars, students By Published: November 22, 2018 8:54 pm Updated: yesterday View 12 Items Simon D. Jones, IRI Elder Jeffrey R. Holland shares a light moment with the Revd. Dr. Andrew Teal during a public conversation on Latter-day Saint beliefs and doctrine at the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin at the University of Oxford on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018.

OXFORD, England — Three Protestant leaders were burned at the stake here after a “theological conversation” at the 1,000-year-old University Church of St. Mary the Virgin in 1555.
The martyrs’ deaths are memorialized by a stone cross set in the road on Oxford’s Broad Street. Simon D. Jones, IRI Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles answers a question about the beliefs and doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as the Rev. Dr. Andrew Teal, chaplain and lecturer in theology at Pembroke College at the University of Oxford, looks on in the Clore Old Library at the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018.
An important Anglican chaplain mentioned that history Thursday during his unique public conversation with a Latter-day Saint apostle at the same church.
“I hope that the outcome today will be a lot better for all of us,” joked the Rev. Dr. Andrew Teal, chaplain and lecturer at Pembroke College.
It was. The 90-minute conversation ended with Rev. Teal warmly embracing Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Standing between old stone walls on creaking wooden floors in the very room where Oxfam was founded in 1942, the two leaders plainly deepened a budding friendship. They found common ground, explored their ideas about frontier spirituality and discussed points of doctrine about the Trinity, temples, dancing, baptism for the dead, the Fall and priesthood ordination in an intimate back-and-forth before a full room of 50 theology faculty and students, the public and local Latter-day Saints.
“There are lots of things to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day,” Rev. Teal said to Elder Holland as day turned to night and the windows fogged. “It’s fantastic to have you here.”
The beginnings of University Church date back more than 1,000 years. The room for Thursday’s meeting once housed the first library at Oxford, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Methodist founder John Wesley preached here. Legendary Anglican-turned-Catholic Cardinal John Henry Newman was the vicar here when Joseph Smith organized The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1830.
Elder Holland delivered a candid explanation of Latter-day Saint theology that had echoes to his visit to the seat of British government on Wednesday.
An online description of the sacred texts available for swearing in new members of the British Parliament lists a “Mormon Bible,” a mistaken and anachronistic term for the Book of Mormon that would alternately amuse, frustrate or offend Latter-day Saints.
Elder Holland visited the clerk who oversees the texts on Wednesday and presented her with a new, leatherbound copy of the book for the collection, a step toward clearing up confusion about the faith in the United Kingdom, where it has 186,000 members.
On Thursday, he delivered a rousing defense of the Book of Mormon at Oxford, which has produced a dozen Catholic saints, 19 English cardinals and 20 archbishops of Canterbury.
He said Latter-day Saints differ from 4th- and 5th-century Christianity in their belief in the teaching of Moses that “my works are without end, and … my words … never cease.”
“I, for one, would feel to walk on hot lava and chew broken glass,” he said, “if I could find a document, any document anywhere, containing any new words of Christ — 50 words, 20 words, one new word from the Son of God — let alone hundreds of pages that record the appearance, teachings, covenants and counsel he gave to a heretofore unknown audience.” Simon D.

Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of answers a question about the beliefs and doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during a public conversation with the Rev. Dr. Andrew Teal, chaplain and lecturer in theology at Pembroke College at the University of Oxford, in the Clore Old Library at the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018.
He referred to the Fall as fortunate and redemption as universally inclusive, which led to follow-up questions from Rev. Teal about the Fall as an educational step and about baptism for the dead. Rev. Teal noted that the Oxford Movement, propelled by Newman in the very church where they stood Thursday, called for prayers for the dead.
“Everyone is covered,” Elder Holland said, “though it remains to be seen whether everyone cares. But if there is a failure to respond, it will not be because God did not try and Christ did not come. That is at the heart of what I have been introducing to you as the restored gospel.”
Rev. Teal, clearly interested in the persecutions of early Latter-day Saints, said humans are naturally “frontier creatures” and asked Elder Holland about “frontier spirituality.” Elder Holland said his faith’s pioneer heritage “had a binding, covenantal impact on us,” creating an early heritage of service, care and watching out for each other as the pioneers were driving literally across the United States and eventually its borders.
He described additional differences with creedal Christianity. “Restored Christianity,” he said, is about the ancient church in what he called its New Testament purity: “So, if one means Greek-influenced, council-convening, philosophy-flavored Christianity of post-apostolic times, we are not that kind of Christian.”
He said God and Christ are separate, distinct beings “as all fathers and sons are” and said divine priesthood authority is ” our most distinguishing feature .”
Rev. Teal responded by calling the Christian journey one with real tensions but said, “We are both determined to be aware that our history should not collapse into categories in which we label each other as distant.”
Elder Holland agreed: “We’ve let some differences, significant differences, get in the way of a larger, warmer, wonderful conversation.”
He praised Rev. Teal, who told the Deseret News that he has watched many of his new friend’s talks online, for his preparation, saying he already knew more about Latter-day Saint theology than many of the faith’s members.
“I find him a wholesome, faithful and inspiring man,” Rev. Teal told the Deseret News, “indeed, ‘great’ but lacking all pomposity of grandeur — I love his humor and really respond to the ‘gift of tears’ which he so often receives and unashamedly shares. I … hope that this is the start of a fruitful friendship.” Simon D. Jones, IRI Elder Jeffrey R. Holland shares a light moment with the Revd. Dr. Andrew Teal during a public conversation on Latter-day Saint beliefs and doctrine at the University Church of St. Mary the Virgin at the University of Oxford on Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018.
Rev. Teal, who became friends with Elder Holland’s son Matthew Holland during the younger Holland’s sabbatical at Oxford last year, said he intended Thursday’s dialogue to increase collaborative understanding.
“We need each other’s eyes to see ourselves,” he said. “There’s something lively going on.”
He told the Deseret News he had a specific goal in mind.
