The United Nations (UN) is at a turning point. With the Millennium Development Goals reaching the finishing line this year, the global development community is looking for a new sustainability agenda to guide development efforts beyond 2015. Member states have agreed that the UN General Assembly Open Working Group proposal for 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) should be the main component of this new post 2015 development agenda, to be launched at a UN Summit in September 2015..

To give an example, when you save Rs.100 and get an annual interest of 10%, you will have Rs.110 at the end of one year. What does look like? Good health, and a .918 SV% for Talbot. In other words, a year that more or less matches what he has delivered across his NHL career. But not all of the load is on Cam shoulders. Luka Modric grew up in refugee camps in a warzone. When heRead More →

My place in life: I was just entering UC Berkeley as a transfer student, leaving the smalltown of Seaside, to hit the Bay Areaaaaaaaaaaa! I think I was just entering a space where my mind was going to be opened whether I liked it or not. I was still at a place where I thought that my manhood was open to be questioned if I ever listened to anything but rap music. I have to thank Jack Johnson for pulling me out of the rap glut.. When I have really had enough, I hide all of the controls in the tumble dryer amongst the washingRead More →

Anita Hasch I am so glad to meet another South African in HubPages, but at the same time so sorry to hear about your ordeal with Metal Industries and , worse of all, the loss of your hubby. Insurance companies are so well known for their successful duck and diving of responsibilities. So sad! I worked for Metal Industries in 1980 1981 as an assessor, however, I can remember their policies and rules. But if you think a radio telescope is pretty amazing “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet”.

Well after understanding the two words equally, now put them together. We have the ability to keep us going without fear and failure. I remember a couple days ago, a few friends that have gained a few pounds over the years asked me to train with them. “There was no corner of the known world where some interest was not alleged to be in danger or under actual attack. If the interests were not Roman, they were those of Rome ‘s allies; and if Rome had no allies, then allies would be invented. When it was utterly impossible to contrive such an interest why, thenRead More →

Only those companies with resources to sacrifice present profits for building up a reputation as a low cost provider brand name is able to survive and reap long term benefits.Wal Mart is good example of low price positioning. It attracts a large market share by offering products at a price lower than what competitors charge for the same product.

Hey man, I am of a similar physique, and have made significant progress. ItsRead More →

US Open champion and fourth seed Sloane Stephens became the tournament’s first big name casualty when she slumped to a 6 1, 6 3 loss to Croatia’s world 55 Donna Vekic. “The last couple of times I played against top players I was playing good but I would still lose. My team always said it’s going to come and it did today.”Stephens shrugged off the loss.

I turn, and the guy is holding a hatchet. He says “give me the keys and I won hurt you”, so I set them on the hood of my car and start to back up. As he goes for the keys, I go for my hand gun. As a result, we believe BTN and those Big Ten games that are on FS1 are in danger of not being carried on Comcast this coming season. So we are letting people know this to alert Comcast subscribers of this real possibility they may lose these games. Don know what makes sense financially for Comcast. The panel statedRead More →

I decided to jog the 4km from home to Battersea Park to “warm up”. It was absolutely freezing! Arriving in plenty of time I picked up my race number without having to queue at all. With it pinned to my Iffley Road vest and having attached the timing chip to my trainers, I was ready to go. This is just one part of the Obama administration’s livability initiative, which aims to increase alternatives to cars, including public transportation as well as biking and walking.Studies show that more and more Canadians would walk and cycle more often, given the appropriate facilities.
