This Jesus is the stone that was rejected by you, the
builders, which has become the Cornerstone. And there
is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name
under heaven given among men by which we must be
saved. - Acts 4:11-12
In the 1800s, Queen Victoria was crossing the English
Channel on her royal yacht.
During the course of the trip, her eye fell upon a tiny bird,
who with fluttering wings, tried to follow the ship.
Apparently, the bird had been attracted by the brightness
of the silk flag which floated at the masthead.
The queen turned to her daughter and pointed to the bird.
As they watched, they could see the bird was becoming
weak and weary, darting down to the waves, then climbing
back up, trying to find some place to rest. But as this bird
was a fragile creature used to the woods and not the
company of man, it refused to settle down on the ship.
With a faint cry it rose from the waves, soared up to the
masthead and,... (more)

On Monday work was as usual but had a coffee with Damon which broke up the day and was v nice and then watched some crap TV at home, Tuesday I went to the gym and did an actual workout for the first time in ages and it was so ridiculously cathartic!

With details for "5G" innovation as yet being worked through, it ought to be clear to consider how the innovation is relied upon to be unique in relation to 4G and, thus, how 4G will fit into the 5G ecosystem community.
Past generational changes have been genuinely huge, helped by an unmistakable outline between what preceded and where the innovation was going.

The move from 2G to 3G was more forward in that it achieved progress in those 2G measures with a specific end goal to bolster higher-speed portable information administration's.
A bigger move was found as far as the move from 3G to 4G, as what we're circuit-exchanged systems offered an approach to web convention based systems that could bolster more prominent system rates and general developing shopper request.

slike Thyme Might Be Your Best Pimple and Acne Cure
Researchers from Leeds Metropolitan University in the UK have been testing out herbal treatments on Propionibacterium acnesâ€”the bacteria which infect pores to produce all sorts of spots, from innocent white heads through to puss-filled cysts. In the process, they've found that thyme is more effective than most acne creams and washes.
Most commercially available treatments rely on benzoyl peroxide to work as an antibacterial. Turns out, thyme contains the exact same active ingredient in high concentrations. Across the researchers' tests, a tincture made from thyme beat remedies you'd find at your pharmacy, hands down. The researchers are presenting their work this week at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference.
But what the hell is a tincture, and how do you make one? Dr Margarita Gomez-Escalada, one of the researchers, explains to EurekAlert:
