Obama, Tiger, Golf and Politics

Obama, Tiger, Golf and Politics
Published: August 23, 2011 New York Times

Despite the carping by critics, I’m glad the president went on vacation because one of the most useful things he could do right now is play golf — a lot of golf — but not that friendly foursome thing with his aides that he usually does. No, real golf: Match play, head to head, with real money on the line. Match-play golf is a great teacher. As any good golfer will tell you, the first rule of match play is this: Never play not to lose. Do not wait and hope for your opponent to make a mistake. Always play the course, always play to win and always assume your opponent will do well — will make that long putt — so you have to do better.

For months now, Obama has been playing not to lose, keeping his own plans for a “Grand Bargain” on debt, deficits, taxes, jobs and investment vague, while waiting for the Republicans to say crazier and crazier stuff — like promising the return of $2-a-gallon gasoline, or insisting that climate change was made up by scientists to get research grants (but politicians taking millions from oil companies can be trusted to tell us the truth on this issue), or that Texas has a right to secede. But while the G.O.P. candidates have been obliging the president with their nuttiness, it has not helped Obama’s poll ratings.
Many Americans can see that most of these G.O.P. candidates are closer to professional wrestlers than politicians — with their fake body slams and anti-Obama bluster. All they are missing are the Tarzan outfits. This is the silly season. But I would not assume that Republicans won’t come up with more serious candidates when it counts, or that some of these candidates won’t move to the center. I would definitely assume that they’ll do better.
That’s why the last few months have been so worrying to Obama supporters. Obama surprised everyone by broaching the idea during the debt negotiations of a “Grand Bargain” — roughly $3 trillion in spending cuts over the next decade and $1 trillion in tax increases — as a signal to the markets that we’re getting our fiscal house in order. It was absolutely the right idea — as long as it is coupled with investments in infrastructure, education and research — but House Speaker John Boehner could not deliver his Tea Party-led G.O.P. caucus.
Yet rather than flesh out his Grand Bargain in detail and take it on the road — and let every American everywhere understand and hear every day that he had a plan but the Republicans wouldn’t rise to it — Obama dropped it. Did he ever try to explain the specifics of his Grand Bargain and why it was the only way to go? No.
This left his allies wondering whether he was committed to it — and really did have his own party on board for it. And it left his opponents thrilled and setting the agenda themselves. It is why Obama’s recent bus tour fell flat. People don’t want to cheer just the man anymore. They want to cheer the man and his plan — a real plan, not just generalities and tactics to get him re-elected with 50.0001 percent and no real mandate to do what’s needed to fix the country now.
Without his own Grand Bargain on the table — imprinted on the mind of every American — Obama has been left playing defense, playing to get the least-bad deal, or playing not to lose. That’s what’s producing all the “What happened to Obama?” talk and its silly variants. (He’s a loser; he’s not very bright; he’s Jimmy Carter.)
It’s all nonsense. Obama is smart, decent and tough, with exactly the right instincts about where the country needs to go. He has accomplished a lot more than he’s gotten credit for — with an opposition dedicated to making him fail. But lately he is seriously off his game. He’s not Jimmy Carter. He’s Tiger Woods — a natural who’s lost his swing. He has so many different swing thoughts in his head, so many people whispering in his ear about what the polls say and how he needs to position himself to get re-elected, that he has lost all his natural instincts for the game. He needs to get back to basics.
It’s crazy what’s happening in America today: We’re having an economic crisis and the politicians are having an election — and there is almost no overlap between the two. The president needs to bring them together. But that can only happen if he stops playing not to lose and goes for broke himself. Our problems are not insoluble. We need a Grand Bargain — where each side gives something on spending, taxes and new investments — and we’re on our way out of this.
Run on that, Mr. President: At best you’ll generate enough public pressure (now totally missing) to shame sane Republicans into joining you, and we’ll get a deal, and at worst you can run in 2012 on a platform, which, if you win, will actually give you a mandate for the change the country needs.
Meanwhile, Mr. President, on a rainy day, rent the movie “Tin Cup.” There is a great scene where Dr. Molly Griswold is trying to help Roy “Tin Cup” McAvoy, the golf pro, rediscover his swing — and himself. She finally tells him: “Roy ... don’t try to be cool or smooth or whatever; just be honest and take a risk. And you know what, whatever happens, if you act from the heart, you can’t make a mistake.”

Mediocrity and Sub-Par work

Avoid settling for mediocore or sub-par work what you are willing to accept, that becomes your true standards means, that whatever you settle for, will always be what you get in the end. If people see that that you will settle less, thats what they will give you. No matter what they think you really deserve, if they see you except less they will surely give it to you. So sometimes try to exceed goals and standards every chance you get. Try to put your best foot forward, try your hardest and give your all. Amend your expectations, if you are used to getting less, show people that you want more. If you refuse to not settle for mediocore or sub-par work, you will always get the left overs. Sometimes when you think you are doing enough, you forget what you really can do. When you actually apply yourself you are shocked at what you really can do. Always do the best you can do and you wll always have great results.!!

The True Israelite "Descentdants of Ham"

Egyptians prompted Count Constantin de Volney (1727-1820) to write, "What a subject for meditation, Just think the race of black men today our slaves and the object of our scorn, is the very race to which we owe our arts, science, and even the use of our Speech."

Ham was one of Noah's three sons, also Shem and Japhet made three. Ham (Khawm) means hot, black and burnt. Ham had four sons all black. Cush father of the Ethiopians / Cushites. Mizraim father of the Egyptians / Khemets. Phut, father of the Lybian or Somalians and the Caananites the original inhabitants of Israel. Genesis 10:6-19

To begin with Jacob and his sons 13 including Joseph who was sold into slavery to the Egyptians. Joseph was promoted to second in charge the viceroy / govenor of Egypt with only Pharoh as his superior. The Egyptian were dark skinned black, burnt people. If Joseph was pale white he would have been easily recognized by his brothers when they came to Egypt from Caanan. However they thought he was and Egyptian. So he and they must have been similar looking to the Egyptians.
In Genesis 50:7-11 describes all Hebrews as looking like Egytians.
If Hebrews were pale(white) then the Caananites would have notices if was a Hebrew and Egyptian funeral not and Egyptian Funeral.

The Hebrew nation went into Egypt 66 strong. After about 400 years they were about 2 million strong. As a way of birth control Pharoh Seti commanded that all male babies be killed. Pharoh Seti, grandfather to Moses after Moses being adopted by Pharoh Seti's daughter who found Moses in the reeds of the river where she lounged. Moses was born a Hebrew Israelite from the tribe of Levi (Exodus 2:1-3). He spent 40 years living in Pharoh's House (Acts 7:23) with all the rights and priveledges of Pharowh's grandson from the time he was and infant (Exodus 2:6,10).

George Ralinson, wrote "History of Egypt" on page 252 he gives an description of Pharoh Seti. "Setis's face was thoroghly African. He had a stormy face with a depressed flat nose thick lips and heavy chin."

How could Pharoh Seti rule over his people if he knowlingly had an Hebrew male living in his house who was decreed to die? Moses lived in the palace of Pharoh because he was black skinned just a Egyptians were. Just as the Caananites could't tell Hebrews from Egyptians, Pharoh couldn't tell either or he would have been killed instantly.
After Moses fled Egypt he went to the land of Midian and met the daughters of Ruel. The girls went home and told their father that an Egyptian saved them and watered their flock. They described Moses as a descendant of Ham; black, burnt and hot...

The Power of Music on Memory and Learning

The power of music to affect memory is quite intriguing. Mozart's music and baroque music, with a 60 beats per minute beat pattern, activate the left and right brain. The simultaneous left and right brain action maximizes learning and retention of information. The information being studied activates the left brain while the music activates the right brain. Also, activities which engage both sides of the brain at the same time, such as playing an instrument or singing, causes the brain to be more capable of processing information.
According to The Center for New Discoveries in Learning, learning potential can be increased a minimum of five times by using this 60 beats per minute music. For example, the ancient Greeks sang their dramas because they understood how music could help them remember more easily ). A renowned Bulgarian psychologist, Dr. George Lozanov, designed a way to teach foreign languages in a fraction of the normal learning time. Using his system, students could learn up to one half of the vocabulary and phrases for the whole school term (which amounts to almost 1,000 words or phrases) in one day. Along with this, the average retention rate of his students was 92%. Dr. Lozanov's system involved using certain classical music pieces from the baroque period which have around a 60 beats per minute pattern. He has proven that foreign languages can be learned with 85-100% efficiency in only thirty days by using these baroque pieces. His students had a recall accuracy rate of almost 100% even after not reviewing the material for four years.
The top three schools in America all place a great emphasis on music and the arts. Hungary, Japan, and the Netherlands, the top three academic countries in the world, all place a great emphasis on music education and participation in music. The top engineers from Silicon Valley are all musicians. Napoleon understood the enormous power of music. He summed it up by saying, "Give me control over he who shapes the music of a nation, and I care not who makes the laws" . (
