Is The Mediterranean Now Europe’s Graveyard for Heathen Christians?

They Send Africans and Christians to death. on packed boats, in rough seas – But they let Arab and African Muslims in. What a morally sick and perverted world: We daily see that what should be despised is being respected, and what should be respected is despised. We see that bad is called good and good is called bad. We see children being viewed as adults, while adults are being treated as children. We see perversion called love

More than 250 African Migrants Are Feared Drowned in the Mediterranean

A charity rescue boat’s discovery of five corpses and two sinking rubber dinghies 15 miles from the Libyan coast has raised fears that more than 250 African migrants may have drowned in the Mediterranean, Thursday.

Spanish NGO Proactiva Open Arms, who operated the rescue boat, said that the two partially submerged dinghies it discovered near the corpses were the kind usually used by people traffickers, Agence France-Press reports. They would typically carry 120-140 migrants each a spokeswoman for the organization said.

We don’t think there can be any other explanation than that these dinghies would have been full of people,” Proactiva spokeswoman Laura Lanuza told AFP. “It seems clear that they sunk.”

In over a year we have never seen any of these dinghies that were anything other than packed,” Lanuza added.

25,170 Muslim Migrants and Refugees Entered Europe by sea in 2017


More than 6,000 migrants have been rescued on the central Mediterranean route from Libya to Italy in the last few days, as greater numbers take to the sea in warmer weather, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said on Tuesday.

IOM reports that 25,170 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea in 2017 through 22 March, with over 80 percent arriving in Italy and the rest in Spain and Greece. This compares with 163,273 through the first 82 days of 2016. IOM Rome spokesman Flavio Di Giacomo said Thursday between 20 and 22 March, 4,380 migrants arrived in Italy by sea. On 23 March another 1,200 migrants who were rescued in recent days also were brought to land. They are not yet included in the 20,674 total arrivals figure compiled by Italy’s Ministry of Interior to date. The main nationalities included with these 1,200 additional arrivals are Nigerian, Gambian, Ivorian, Ghanaian, Malian, Senegalese and Guinean (both Guinea-Bissau and Conakry). Di Giacomo further reported that on Thursday the NGO Proactiva Open Arms retrieved the remains of five migrants from a capsized dinghy. These five deaths are not included in the 559 Mediterranean migrant and refugee fatalities recorded by IOM’s Missing Migrants Project through March 22. Also, IOM Libya’s Christine Petré reported Thursday that on Tuesday (21 March) local fishermen rescued 54 migrants – 50 men, four women) off Zuwarah. An estimated 120 people were on board a rubber boat, she reported, and that the remains of two male migrants were retrieved on shore. IOM Libya reports the total number of migrants rescued in Libyan water in 2017 is 3,457. Total known fatalities: 163 Last year at this time IOM recorded 554 Mediterranean fatalities, two thirds of those occurring off Greece in the Eastern Mediterranean. In 2017 so far only two fatalities have been recorded on this route. By contrast, nearly 560 of this year’s reported deaths have occurred on the routes to Italy and Spain – or about three times the combined 188 fatalities recorded on these two routes in 2016. Worldwide, Missing Migrants reports fatalities on this date top 1,050 (see chart, below), with the Mediterranean region accounting for the largest proportion of deaths – over half of the global total. As of March 23, Missing Migrants Project has recorded 20,157 migrant deaths since the start of 2014 – or over 20,000 migrant deaths recorded in just over three years.

Ethiopian Face of The Day: Richard Quest

The Man Behind Ethiopia’s First Botanic Garden

I just read this story about the good Ethiopian botanical scientist, and twon things amused immediately:

1. Ethiopia’s 1st botanic garden? What about ‘Addis’ Bihere Tsige, which is as botanical as any Eurpean botanic garden? Do gardens have to their plants botanical names to qualify for gardens? Anyways, Prof. Sebsebe’s plan is a very good plan, as Ethioipia needs more gardens, parks and forests.

The report reads like this:

A leading Ethiopian botanical scientist plans to open Ethiopia’s first botanic garden. Professor Sebsebe Demissew says the continent needs people with the skills to advance plant research. The award-winning botanist has been explaining to us what the benefits of plants are to local people.

2. The 2nd thing that caught my attention is the striking resemblance I noticed between Professor Sebsebe and CNN weirdo Richard Quest. Exactly 9 years ago (21 Apr 2008) CNN’s most high-profile faces, Richard Quest was busted in New York’s Central Park with some drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot, law-enforcement sources said. It wasn’t immediately clear what the rope was for. Madre mía! In case Mr. Quest still means business, and is fooling around with this sort of things, he should immediately go into rehab in one of the next botanic gardens of Professor Sebsebe.

እዚህ ላይ ሁለት የምያሳዝን ነገር ነበር የታዘብኩት፦

1. እነዚህ ሙስሊም ህፃናት “ክርስቶስ አልተወለደም! አልተሰቀለም!” የሚለውን ርኩሱን ቁርዓን እየቀሩ፡ እና አምላካችንን ክርስቶስን ሳይቀበሉ፡ሳይድኑ ህይወታቸው ማለፉ፣

2. እንደ ጋዜጠኛ ግዛቸው ያሉ እስላም ያልሆኑት ወገኖቻችን ርኩሱን ቁርዓን ለምን “ቅዱስ” እንደሚሉት ነበር እጅግ በጣም ያሳዘነኝ።

እኛ፤ አንድ አባት ነው ያለን፤ እርሱም ጌታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ነው። አንድ ቅዱስ መጽሐፍ ነው ያለው፡ እርሱም መጽሐፍ ቅዱሳችን ነው። ሙስሊሞቹ ቅዱሱን መጽሐፋችንን ሲጸርፉት፣ ሲኮንኑት እንጂ፤ ሲያሞግሱት ወይም “ቅዱስ” ብለው ሲጠሩት ሰምተን እናውቃለንን? በጭራሽ!

ይህ ታሪክ ሌላ ምንን አስታወሰኝ፤ እዚህ ተመልከቱ – ከሁለት ዓመት በፊት በሜዲትራኒያን ባህር ጀልባ ላይ ተሳፍረው ለተሻለ ህይወት ወደ አውሮፓ ሲጓዙ በውሃው ላይ ማዕበል ተነሳ። ከዚያም ክርስቲያን አፍሪቃውያኑ ጸሎት ሲጀምሩ አብረዋቸው የነበሩት ሙስሊሞች ጸሎታችሁ ነው ማዕበል ያስነሳው በማለት የነበሩትን 10 ክርስቲያኖች ገድለው ለአሳ ቀለብ እንዲሆኑ ወደ ውሃው አሽቀነጠሯቸው። (አንበሣን ፈርቼ ዛፍ ላይ ብወጣ ነብር ጠበቀኝ)አንርሳ! ታዲያ አሁን በ ቆሼ የነበሩት ሙስሊሞች ቁራን ሲያቀሩ፡ ህዝበ ክርስቲያኑ እናንተናችሁ ያመጣችሁት ብሎ ሊያጠፋቸው ይሞክር ነበርን? በፍጹም፡ የማይታሰብ ነው! ለመሆኑ ስንቶቻችን ነን በቀን አምስት ጊዜ ለአላሃቸው የሚያደርጉት ጸሎት ግማሹ እኛን ክርስቲያኖችን እና አይሁዶችን የሚረግሙበት ጸሎት እንደሆነ የምናውቅ? እዚህ ተመልከቱ። አንዱ ወገናችን ይህን ስነግረው እና የጸሎቱን ጽሑፍ ሳሳየው፡ “አ አ ኧረረግ!„ አለና ራሱን ስቶ እስከ መውደቅ ደርሶ ነበር። እነርሱ ድግምቱንና መተቱን ባገኙት አጋጣሚ ሁላ፡ በዓይጦች ሳይቀር፡ እንደሚያደርጉብን አንዳንዶቻችን ደርሰንበታል፤ ሆኖም ስጋቸውን አይደለም የምንዋጋው፡ ያደረባቸውን ርኩስ መንፈስ እንጂ። ይህን መንፈስ በእረኛችን በእግዚአብሔር ስም፣ ከመለአክቶቻችንና ከቅዱሳኖቻችን ጋር አብረን እንዋጋዋለን።

በነገራችን ላይ፡ ቆሼ ተነስቶ የመናፈሻ ፓርክ ለመስራት እቅድ መኖሩ ሰሞኑን ተገልጦ ነበር። ይህ ትልቅ ነገር ነው፡ እንደ ተዓምርም ሊወሰድ የሚገባው ጉዳይ ነው። ወገኖቻችን ህሊና እንዲገዙ ለረዳቸው ቸሩ እግዚአብሔር ምስጋና ይድረሰው!!

በዚያን ጊዜ ሰዎች ለመከራ አሳልፈው ይሰጧችኋል፤ ይገድሏችኋል፤ በስሜም ምክንያት በሕዝቦች ሁሉ ዘንድ የተጠላችሁ ትሆናላችሁ፡፡ በዚያን ጊዜ ብዙዎች ሃይማኖታቸውን በመካድ ይሰናከላሉ፤ አንዱ ሌላውን አሳልፎ ይሰጣል፤ ሰዎችም እርስ በርሳቸው ይጣላሉ፡፡ ብዙ ሃሰተኞች ነቢያት ይነሣሉ፤ ብዙዎችንም ያሳስታሉ፤ ከክፋት ብዛት የተነሣ የብዙ ሰዎች ፍቅር ትቀዘቅዛለች፡፡ እስከ መጨረሻ በትዕግስት የሚጸና ግን ይድናል፡፡ ለሕዝቦች ሁሉ ምሥክር እንዲሆን ይህ የእግዚአብሔር መንግሥት ወንጌል በመላው ዓለም ይሰበካል፤ በዚያን ጊዜ መጨረሻው ይመጣል፡፡” [ማቴ. 24፥ 9–14]

Fake News Media Ignoring The Admission That U.S. Intelligence Agencies Spied On President Donald Trump?

Posted by addisethiopia on March 23, 2017

But all eyes on London now – and Scottish independence debate halted after Westminster attack. Everything just coincidental? More destruction?

Read this: URGENT / FOR IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION

this: WHY IS OBAMA HIDING IN TAHITI FOR A MONTH AT A 13K PER NIGHT ISLAND RESORT?

House Intel Chair Bombshell: Nunes ‘Unmasking’ Report Vindicates Trump Claims on Surveillance

House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced on Wednesday that he had learned that members of President Donald Trump’s transition team had been under surveillance by the Obama administration, that individual names had been “unmasked” by the intelligence community, and that those names had been leaked to the media.

Nunes’s information — which he said he would deliver to the White House later — vindicates the bulk of Trump’s claims earlier this month.

Nunes said that while there was no direct “wiretap” by President Barack Obama of Trump Tower, there was indeed surveillance — perhaps collected incidentally — of people close to Trump, possibly including Trump himself.

Much of that had been suspected, on the basis of mainstream media reports, but Rep. Nunes reported something new: that the surveillance did not involve the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) inquiry into Russia’s alleged involvement in the 2016 presidential election. Indeed, none of the surveillance had intelligence value, he said.

I believe it was all done legally,” Nunes told a press conference. The question, he said, was why names of those swept up in the surveillance had been leaked. The collection of the intelligence appeared to have been legal, but the leaking may have been illegal.

Most of the activity occurred during the transition period from November to January. Furthermore, Nunes said, he did not know whether phone calls — including phone calls involving Trump — were among the communications captured.

Nunez added that the new information had come to light after Monday’s hearing with FBI Director James Comey, when the congressman had appealed to anyone with new information to come forward. He said the new revelations had been “legally brought to me by sources who thought that we should know it.

The new information vindicates earlier reporting by Breitbart News, Mark Levin, and others, and which President Trump may have relied upon in tweeting the wiretapping claim Mar. 4.

Following Monday’s hearing, the mainstream media appeared to celebrate Comey’s statement that there was no evidence of wiretapping at Trump Tower. Politicians, too, piled on — including some Republicans, like Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who demanded that Trump apologize to Obama.

However, the only new revelation at the hearing was that senior members of the Obama administration may have been involved in “unmasking” former General Michael Flynn in intelligence reports.

Wednesday’s revelations by Rep. Nunes confirm earlier media reports of surveillance of Trump aides and associates, with the added twist that the revelations were unrelated to investigations of Russian ties to the Trump campaign.

No evidence of any collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign has been found, and former Obama administration intelligence officials have said publicly that such evidence does not exist.

Though the media, and the political opposition, had attacked Trump for his claims about wiretapping, he later clarified that he had used the term to refer to surveillance in a general sense. He also suggested that more evidence would soon emerge.

The result is a vindication of Trump’s controversial claims. Questions remain about whether President Obama himself knew of the surveillance, which other Obama administration officials were involved, and whether Trump was monitored directly.

It Was Another Perfect Moment Until Pride & Prejudice Reigned

Posted by addisethiopia on March 22, 2017

It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels St. Augustine

When Being Right is Wrong: The Deadly Sin of Pride

There is a little poem by e.e.cummings which contains a line, “even on a sunday may I be wrong, for whenever men are right they are not young.” The poet is being paradoxically playful to make a point. When we are always right about everything we have not only lost the innocence of youth, but we are also guilty of the most basic sin of all, the deadly sin of pride. Pride is best understood as being right at all costs.

Some of the problems we think of as pride are really the symptoms of pride. We consider an arrogant person to be proud, but arrogance is one of the outward signs of pride. A person who displays his achievement or wealth, struts his good looks or brags about his victories is displaying the symptoms of pride, but pride is a much deeper problem and its symptoms can be seen in many other less obvious ways. A person who insists on arguing his point and will not listen to anyone else is proud. A person who simply assumes that he is right in his opinions is proud even though he may not strut or be arrogant. A person who can never be corrected, who is always defensive, who always has an excuse or always blames another person is proud because they cannot be wrong. Ever. At all.

In religious circles a person who is self righteous is proud. Now it gets tricky because a person who appears very humble and pious might, beneath the surface, be very proud of their piety and religious knowledge. At this point we have to laugh at ourselves. “What? You mean I am proud of being humble?” It’s true, some of the most incorrigibly proud people appear to be self effacing, obedient and pious souls.

This is why pride is so deadly, because it is the one sin that hides itself so effectively. The proud person, by very definition, does not realize he is proud. If he realized he was proud he would repent, but it is pride which keeps him from seeing that he is wrong or sinful in any way. Pride is a very difficult sin to do anything about because the proud person will even go so far as to admit that he is proud, and that makes him even more “right” than he was before!

What a subtle, lying, deceitful and insidious sin pride is! No wonder it is called “the first sin”. No wonder it is the first and most terrible sin of Satan who is the Father of Lies. Is pride deadly? Yes. It is deadly like a poisoned apple. It is deadly like a smiling murderer. Pride kills because the proud person cannot stand others who disagree. Not only does the proud person have to be right, but as their pride grows they must also destroy everyone else who is wrong. They cannot allow an enemy to remain. The proud person may not kill literally, but they kill reputations through gossip and detraction. They kill good will through hatred and recrimination. They kill charity through revenge and nursing a grudge. They kill friendship through arrogance, indifference to others and lack of compassion.

Humility counters pride. The word “humility” is derived from the same root as humor and “humus” which means “earth.” A humble person is down to earth. A humble person has a good sense of humor. Most of all, the humble person knows his failures, faults and foibles. He knows himself and can laugh at himself. e.e.cummings ends the poem by saying ruefully, “there’s never been quite such a fool who could fail, pulling all the sky over him with one smile.”

Probably The Most Disgraceful Day In American Politics

Posted by addisethiopia on March 20, 2017

The satanic left-liberal establishment must have a great deal of fear for its incursions these days. A disgrace what we were enable to witness at Capitol Hill, during the so-called, „Russia Intelligence Hearing„ amazing, they don’t even call the president with President Trump, just „Mr. Trump„ – this extraordinary,woow!

Probably the most disgraceful day in American politics ever. For whatever reason the twisted left-liberals and their wicked medias keep carrying the same tired Russian narrative. Russia, Russsia, Russssssia!Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

I’ve never ever seen anything like it. The „Right Wing„Geert Wilders lost the Netherlands election last week, but, why don’t we see the sort of backlash from conservatives like we witness from the left in US of A? The whole thing is just weird in the overall context of things. I have never seen such a tiresome drama from American politicians and the media, never! Everything is just magic smoking monkey theater! Indeed, those angry and bitter demons don’t like losing, and they don’t seem to give up until moon-god-hating, President Trump is crucified.

World Cities With The Best Quality Of Life In The World 2017

Posted by addisethiopia on March 20, 2017

Every year Mercer, one of the world’s largest HR consultancy firms, releases its Quality of Living Index, which looks at which cities provide the best quality of life.

The ranking is one of the most comprehensive of its kind and is carried out annually to help multinational companies and other employers to compensate employees fairly when placing them on international assignments, according to Mercer.

London and New York do not make it anywhere near the top of the list.

Looking at 450 cities across the world, Mercer takes into account the following metrics to judge which cities made the list for the best quality of life:

  • Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement)
  • Economic environment (currency-exchange regulations, banking services)
  • Socio-cultural environment (media availability and censorship, limitations on personal freedom)
  • Medical and health considerations (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution)
  • Schools and education (standards and availability of international schools)
  • Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transportation, traffic congestion)
  • Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure)
  • Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars)
  • Housing (rental housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services)
  • Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters)

Mercer made a list of 230 countries

Vienna tops Mercer’s 19th quality of living ranking

Infrastructure is pivotal in determining quality of living for expats and cities

Vienna ranks highest for quality of living for the 8th year in a row

Singapore ranks first for city infrastructure. UK’s highest ranked city, London, ranks 40th for quality of living, 6th for infrastructure

Despite increased political and financial volatility in Europe, many of its cities offer the world’s highest quality of living and remain attractive destinations for expanding business operations and sending expatriates on assignment, according to Mercer’s 19th annual Quality of Living survey. City infrastructure, ranked separately this year, plays an important role when multinationals decide where to establish locations abroad and send expatriate workers. Easy access to transportation, reliable electricity, and drinkable water are all important considerations when determining hardship allowances based on differences between a given assignee’s home and host locations.

Economic instability, social unrest, and growing political upheaval all add to the complex challenge multinational companies face when analysing quality of living for their expatriate workforce,” said Ilya Bonic, senior partner and president of Mercer’s Career business. “For multinationals and governments it is vital to have quality of living information that is accurate, detailed, and reliable. It not only enables these employers to compensate employees appropriately, but it also provides a planning benchmark and insights into the often-sensitive operational environment that surrounds their workforce.

In uncertain times, organisations that plan to establish themselves and send staff to a new location should ensure they get a complete picture of the city, including its viability as a business location and its attractiveness to key talent,” Mr Bonic added.

Vienna occupies first place for overall quality of living for the 8th year running, with the rest of the top-ten list mostly filled by European cities: Zurich is in second place, with Munich (4), Dusseldorf (6), Frankfurt (7), Geneva (8), Copenhagen (9), and Basel, a newcomer to the list, in 10th place. The only non-European cities in the top ten are Auckland (3) and Vancouver (5). The highest ranking cities in Asia and Latin America are Singapore (25) and Montevideo (79), respectively.

Mercer’s survey also includes a city infrastructure ranking that assesses each city’s supply of electricity, drinking water, telephone and mail services, and public transportation as well as traffic congestion and the range of international flights available from local airports. Singapore tops the city infrastructure ranking, followed by Frankfurt and Munich both in 2nd place. Baghdad (230) and Port au Prince (231) rank last for city infrastructure.

Mercer’s authoritative survey is one of the world’s most comprehensive and is conducted annually to enable multinational companies and other organisations to compensate employees fairly when placing them on international assignments. In addition to valuable data, Mercer’s Quality of Living surveys provide hardship premium recommendations for over 450 cities throughout the world; this year’s ranking includes 231 of these cities.

The success of foreign assignments is influenced by issues such as ease of travel and communication, sanitation standards, personal safety, and access to public services,” said Slagin Parakatil, Principal at Mercer and responsible for its quality of living research. “Multinational companies need accurate and timely information to help calculate fair and consistent expatriate compensation – a real challenge in locations with a compromised quality of living.”

Mr Parakatil added, “A city’s infrastructure, or rather the lack thereof, can considerably affect the quality of living that expatriates and their families experience on a daily basis. Access to a variety of transport options, being connected locally and internationally, and access to electricity and drinkable water are among the essential needs of expatriates arriving in a new location on assignment. A well-developed infrastructure can also be a key competitive advantage for cities and municipalities trying to attract multinational companies, talent, and foreign investments.” 

Europe

Even with political and economic turbulence, Western European cities continue to enjoy some of the highest quality of living worldwide. Still in the top spot, Vienna is followed by Zurich (2), Munich (4), Dusseldorf (6), Frankfurt (7), Geneva (8), Copenhagen (9), and a newcomer to the list, Basel (10). In 69th place, Prague is the highest ranking city in Central and Eastern Europe, followed by Ljubljana (76) and Budapest (78). Most European cities remained stable in the ranking, with the exception of Brussels (27), dropping six places because of terrorism-related security issues, and Rome (57), down four places due to its waste-removal issues. Finally, Istanbul fell from 122nd to 133rd place as a result of the severe political turmoil in Turkey during the past year. The lowest ranking cities in Europe are St. Petersburg and Tirana (both ranked 176), along with Minsk (189).

Western European cities also hold most of the top ten places in the city infrastructure ranking with Frankfurt and Munich jointly ranking 2nd worldwide, followed by Copenhagen (4) and Dusseldorf (5). London is in 6th place, and Hamburg and Zurich both rank 9th. Ranking lowest across Europe are Sarajevo (171) and Tirana (188).

Cities that rank high in the city infrastructure list provide a combination of top-notch local and international airport facilities, varied and extended coverage through their local transportation networks, and innovative solutions such as smart technology and alternative energy,” said Mr Parakatil. “Most cities now align variety, reliability, technology, and sustainability when designing infrastructure for the future.”

Americas

In North America, Canadian cities take the top positions in the ranking. Vancouver (5) is again the region’s highest ranking city for quality of living. Toronto and Ottawa follow in 16th and 18th place respectively, whereas San Francisco (29) is the highest ranking US city, followed by Boston (35), Honolulu (36), New York (44), and Seattle (45). High crime rates in Los Angeles (58) and Chicago (47) resulted in these cities dropping nine and four places respectively. Monterrey (110) is the highest ranking city in Mexico, while the country’s capital, Mexico City, stands in 128th position. In South America, Montevideo (79) ranks highest for quality of living, followed by Buenos Aires (93) and Santiago (95). La Paz (157) and Caracas (189) are the lowest ranking cities in the region.

For city infrastructure, Vancouver (in 9th place) also ranks highest in the region. It is followed by Atlanta and Montreal, tied in 14th place. Overall, the infrastructure of cities in Canada and the United States is of a high standard, including the airport and bus connectivity, the availability of clean drinking water, and the reliability of electricity supplies. Traffic congestion is a concern in cities throughout the whole region. Tegucigalpa (208) and Port-au-Prince (231) have the lowest scores for city infrastructure in North America. In 84th place, Santiago is the highest ranking South American city for infrastructure; La Paz (168) is the lowest.

Asia-Pacific

Singapore (25) remains the highest ranking city in the Asia-Pacific region, where there is great disparity in quality of living; Dushanbe (215) in Tajikistan ranks lowest. In Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur (86) follows Singapore; other key cities include Bangkok (131), Manila (135), and Jakarta (143). Five Japanese cities top the ranking for East Asia: Tokyo (47), Kobe (50), Yokohama (51), Osaka (60), and Nagoya (63). Other notable cities in Asia include Hong Kong (71), Seoul (76), Taipei (85), Shanghai (102), and Beijing (119). There is also considerable regional variation in the city infrastructure ranking. The highest-ranked city is Singapore (1), whereas Dhaka (214) is near the bottom of the list.

New Zealand and Australia continue to rank highly in quality of living: Auckland (3), Sydney (10), Wellington (15), and Melbourne (16) all remain in the top 20. However, when ranked for infrastructure, only Sydney (8) makes the top ten, with Perth (32), Melbourne (34), and Brisbane (37) also ranking well for infrastructure in Oceania. By and large, cities in Oceania enjoy good quality of living, though criteria such as airport connectivity and traffic congestion are among the factors that see them ranked lower in terms of city infrastructure.

Middle East and Africa

Dubai (74) continues to rank highest for quality of living across Africa and the Middle East, rising one position in this year’s ranking, followed closely by Abu Dhabi (79), which climbed three spots. Sana’a (229) in Yemen, Bangui (230) in the Central African Republic, and Baghdad (231) in Iraq are the region’s three lowest-ranked cities for quality of living.

Dubai also ranks highest for infrastructure in 51st place. Only five other cities in this region make the top 100, including Tel Aviv (56), Abu Dhabi (67), Port Louis (94), Muscat (97), and upcoming host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Doha in Qatar, which ranks 96th for infrastructure. Cities in African and Middle Eastern countries dominate the bottom half of the table for infrastructure, with Brazzaville (228) in the Republic of the Congo, Sana’a (229), and Baghdad (230) ranking the lowest.

Notes to Editors

Mercer produces worldwide quality-of-living rankings annually from its Worldwide Quality of Living Surveys. Individual reports are produced for each city surveyed. Moreover, comparative quality-of-living indexes between a base city and host city are available, as are multiple-city comparisons. Details are available from Mercer Client Services in Warsaw, at +48 22 434 5383 or at http://www.mercer.com/qualityofliving.

The data was largely analysed between September and November 2016, and it will be updated regularly to account for changing circumstances. In particular, the assessments will be revised to reflect significant political, economic, and environmental developments.The list of rankings is provided to media for reference, and should not be published in full. The top 10 and bottom 10 cities in either list may be reproduced in a table.

The information and data obtained through the Quality of Living reports are for information purposes only and are intended for use by multinational organisations, government agencies, and municipalities. They are not designed or intended for use as the basis for foreign investment or tourism. In no event will Mercer be liable for any decision made or action taken in reliance of the results obtained through the use of, or the information or data contained in, the reports. While the reports have been prepared based upon sources, information, and systems believed to be reliable and accurate, they are provided on an “as-is” basis, and Mercer accepts no responsibility/liability for the validity/accuracy (or otherwise) of the resources/data used to compile the reports. Mercer and its affiliates make no representations or warranties with respect to the reports, and disclaim all express, implied and statutory warranties of any kind, including, representations and implied warranties of quality, accuracy, timeliness, completeness, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose.

Expatriates in Difficult Locations: Determining Appropriate Allowances and Incentives

Companies need to determine expatriate compensation packages rationally, consistently, and systematically using reliable data. Providing incentives to reward and recognise the effort that employees and their families make when taking on international assignments remains a typical practice, particularly for difficult locations.

Two common incentives include a quality-of-living allowance and a mobility premium:

§ A quality-of-living or “hardship” allowance compensates for a decrease in the quality of living between home and host locations.

§ A mobility premium simply compensates for the inconvenience of being uprooted and having to work in another country.

A quality-of-living allowance is typically location-related, while a mobility premium is usually independent of the host location. Some multinational companies combine these premiums, but the vast majority provides them separately.

Quality of Living: City Benchmarking

Mercer also helps municipalities to assess factors that can improve their quality of living rankings. In a global environment, employers have many choices about where to deploy their mobile employees and set up new business. A city’s quality of living can be an important variable for employers to consider.

Leaders in many cities want to understand the specific factors that affect their residents’ quality of living and address those issues that lower a city’s overall quality-of-living ranking. Mercer advises municipalities by using a holistic approach that addresses the goals of progressing towards excellence and attracting both multinational companies and globally mobile talent by improving the elements that are measured in its Quality of Living survey.

Mercer Hardship Allowance Recommendations

Mercer evaluates local living conditions in more than 450 cities surveyed worldwide. Living conditions are analysed according to 39 factors, grouped in 10 categories:

1. Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement, etc.).

2. Economic environment (currency exchange regulations, banking services).

3. Socio-cultural environment (media availability and censorship, limitations on personal freedom).

4. Medical and health considerations (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution, etc.).

5. Schools and education (standards and availability of international schools).

6. Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transportation, traffic congestion, etc.).

7. Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure, etc.).

8. Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars, etc.).

9. Housing (rental housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services).

10. Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters).

The scores attributed to each factor, which are weighted to reflect their importance to expatriates, permit objective city-to-city comparisons. The result is a quality of living index that compares relative differences between any two locations evaluated. For the indices to be used effectively, Mercer has created a grid that enables users to link the resulting index to a quality of living allowance amount by recommending a percentage value in relation to the index.

My Note: I’m certain Addis Abeba would land in the top 10, if they took into account the metrics of Spiritual Life, Air Quality (Altitude + Sun, Light), Food Quality (Organic vs. Chemicals). Two days ago, I learned that a remote tribe living deep in the Amazon (Bolivia) is found to have the healthiest arteries ever studied. Does this tell us about quality of life? Do “rich” Northern Nations have enough money to paint their skies this BLUE?

Unbelievable: Angela Merkel With a Beard Received 100% of Votes

Posted by addisethiopia on March 19, 2017

The candidate named by Germany’s Social Democrats to challenge Chancellor Angela Merkel, Martin Schulz who was the only nominee for the post of Social Democratic Party (SPD) chairman, received 100% of the delegates’ votes – an unprecedented result in the SPD’s post-war history – to become chancellor candidate and party chairman. Kim Jong-un of North Korea and Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt send greetings. Woow! Dictatorships, indeed, are often unexpected – and often, this is how fascism takes hold

Germany is in a state of siege – what did it do to deserve these leaders!? It looks more and more clear that Satanic Masons are running Germany. Even if Merkel quits – highly unlikely – her bearded version is ready to continue this unholy Antichrist agenda: Look at this picture, Martin Schulz showing the Masonic 666-sign of the Antichrist.

Poor Germany; Confused, dormant, deceived & without alternative. Come September, it has- the choice between the plague (Angela Merkel) and cholera (Martin Schulz). M&M.

ሁለተኛው ምጽአት፦ ወደፊት ክርስቶስ የሚመጣበት ሁለተኛው ምጽአት ይባላል። ክርስቶስ ወደፊት የሚመጣው ከፍ ባለ ግርማና በታላቅ ክብር፣ በአስፈሪነት፣ በእምላክነቱ ክብርና በግርማ መለኮቱ በመላእክት ታጅቦ ነው። ዛሬ በቅዳሴ ጌዜ የተነበበው የማቴዎስ ወንጌል ‹‹የሰው ልጅም በኃይልና በታላቅ ክብር በደመና ላይ ሆኖ ይመጣል፤›› (ማቴ. 2430) ሲል አስረድቶናል። ጌታችን መድኃኒታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ በመጨረሻ የሚመጣው ለምሕረትና ለይቅርታ ሳይሆን ለእያንዳንዱ ሰው በዚህ ዓለም እንደ ሠራው ሥራ መሠረት ዋጋውን ለመስጠት፣ ዋጋውን ለመክፈል እንደ ሠራው ሥራ መሠረት ዋጋውን ለመስጠት፣ ዋጋውን ለመክፈል እንደ ታላቅ ዕለተ ዕለት (የክብር ዕለት) ወይንም ዕለተ ፍዳ ወደይን (የፍዳና የመከራ ዕለት) ትባላለች። ዕለተ ክብር (የክብር ዕለት) የምትባልበትም ምክንያት ጌታ ጌትነቱን፣ ከብሩን የሚገልጥባት፣ ለወዳጆቹ ለጻድቃን፣ ለሰማዕታትና በአጠቃላይ ሕጉን ትእዛዙን አክብረውና ፈጽመው ለኖሩት ለተቀደሱት ምእምናን ክርስቲያኖች ዋጋቸውንና የሚገባቸውን ክብር የሚሰጥባተ ዕልት ስለሆነች ነው። እነዚህ ቅዱሳን በዚህ ጊዜ ታልፋልች የምትባለውን መንግሥተ ሰማያት የሚወርሱባት ቀን ስልሆነች ነው።

ስለ ሰው ልጅ ትንሣኤ፦ ሰው ከሞተ በኋላ አንድ እንስሳትና እንደ አራዊት ፈርሶ በስብሶ አፈር ትብያ ሆኖ የሚቀር ፍጥረት አይደለም ነገር ግን ሰዎች ቢሞቱም በመጨረሻው ጊዜ በዕለተ ምጽአት ሕይውትን አግኝተው ለዘለዓልም ለመኖር በሥጋ ይነሣሉ። የሰው ልጅ ትንሣኤ ሁለት ዓይነት ነው፦

(). የከብር ትንሣኤ

(). የሐሳር (የመከራ) ትንሣኤ

ይባላል።

የክብር ትንሣኤ የሚባለው ሰዎች በምድር ሕይወታቸው ሳሉ በሚሠሩአቸው መልካም ሥራ ሁሉ እንዲሁም ሕጉን ትእዛዙን አክብረውና መፈጽመው ስለኖሩ ከልዑል እግዚአብሔር የክብር ዋጋ ጽድቅን መንግሥተ ሰማያትን የሚያገኙበት ስለሆነ ነው። የመከራ ትንሣኤ የሚባለው ደግሞ ሰዎች በምድር ሕይወታቸው ሳሉ በሚሠሩተ ክፉ ሥራ ሁሉ በጌታ ዘንድ ፍዳና መከራ፤ ሐሳርና ኵነኔ የሚያገኙበትና ወደ ገሃነመ እሳት የሚወርዱበት ስለሆነ ነው።

የሰው ልጀ በምድር ላይ ሲኖር በሚሠራው ሥራ ሁሉ ከሞተ በኋላ ክልዑል እግዚበሔር ዘንድ ተገቢውን ፍርድ ያገኛል። የሚሰጠውም ፍርድ በሁለት ይከፈላል፤

1/ ጊዜያዊ ፍርድ

2/ የመጨረሻ ፍርድ ይባላሉ

ጊዜያዊ ፍርድ፦ ሰው ከዚህ ዓለም በሞት እንደተለየ በሠራው ሥራ መሠረት ጊዜያዊ ፍርድ አግኝቶ ወደ ጊዜያዊ ማረፊያወደ ገነት ወይም ወይም ሲኦል ይገባል።

የመጨረሻው ፍርድ፦ የመጨረሻው ፍርድ የሚባለው ደገሞ ሰዎች በምድር ሕይወታቸው መልክም ሥራ የሠሩ፤ የእግዚብሔርን ሕግን ትእዛዝ ጠብቀው የኖሩ በመጨረሻው ጊዜ በሥጋ ተነሥተው ዓለም ሲፈጠር ጀምቶ የተዘጋጀውን መንግሥተ ሰማያትን እንዲወርሱ የሚሰጣቸው ፍርድ ነው። ማቴ. 2541-46 ያለውን አንብብ።

ገሀነመ እሳት፦ ገሃነመ እሳት የሚባለው ደግሞ ሰዎች በዚህ ዓለም ሕይወታቸው ክፉ ሥራ ሲሠሩ የቆዩ፦ ሕጉንና ትእዛዙን ሳይፈጽሙ የኖሩ ሁሉ በመጨረሻው ፍርድ ጊዜ እነሱም በሥጋ ሥቃይና መከራ ቦታ ገሀነመ እሳት ይገባሉ። ማቴ 2541 -46 ያለውን አንብብ ።

ምስጋና ወቀሳ፦ በመጨረሻው ፍርድ ጊዜ ጌታ ለጻድቃን የሚሰጠው ምስጋናና ኃጥአንን የሚወቅስበት የተግሣጽ ቃን የማኀበራዊ አገለግሎትን የሚመለከት ነው።

ቀጥለው ያንብቡ
