Why most singles choose wrongly.
"They would like someone to 'wow' them -- sweep them off their feet so to speak. But sadly, they have never thought about what would happen after they get married." Chen said. "They forget that a person is not a piece of real estate where you look at how nice it is, and how much it is worth. A person can change, can argue and can have upsets."

Navy Curator Says Every Day Promises New Discovery
WASHINGTON - When it comes to working in a controlled environment, it's not unusual to have special badges and keypad entries. For Julie Kowalsky, safe-cracking skills come in handy. Kowalsky, a curator with the Collections Management Division (CMD) at the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC), has hundreds of antique and historical weapons locked in a temperature-controlled room behind a vault door with a combination-spin lock. And sometimes the lock on that 1915 vault door manufactured at York, Penn., can be a bit temperamental.

U.S. Navy Historic Weapons Collection Dates to 17th Century
NHHC has a long history of preserving, analyzing, and disseminating the history and heritage of the U.S. Navy. The organization traces its roots back to 1800 when President John Adams instructed the first Secretary of the Navy, Benjamin Stoddert, to prepare a catalog of professional books for use in the Secretary's office. Over the next two centuries, the Navy's history was collected through various offices and departments. Finally, in the early 1970s, the organization, ultimately entitled the Naval History and Heritage Command, became a single entity responsible for all aspects of Navy historical preservation and dissemination.

Avoiding Dementia and Promoting Better Brain Health
Neuroplasticity refers to the brain's lifelong ability to rewire itself in response to the stimulation of learning and experience. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and adjust its response to new situations and changes in its environment. This dispels the myth that the adult brain is a relatively stagnant and fragile organ. It's a muscle, just like any other muscle in the body. Like other muscles, you have to work it.

The Navy is big on tradition, and with that tradition comes a collection of items that range from a $4.4 million dollar sterling silver trophy to a simple Thanksgiving menu from a destroyer during World War II. But concern about the loss of precious items in that collection while in storage has created an urgency that has been directed by Capt.

Islam: a Din (a religion) and a Dawla (a state)
Nation Building in Islamic Societies is a provocative and long overdue analysis of the reasons why nation building in Islamic societies has failed and why, in the author's view, it will continue to do so for a considerable time yet. The raison d'etre of all Arab states that came into existence after the First World War was to promote the ambitions of the individual rulers and their families, be they kings, emirs or soldiers of fortune who usurped power through coups d'etat.

Enabling our kids out of their future
As I was handing out the exam many of my students asked when there would be a make-up exam. I have to admit I was surprised by their question. I asked if they studied for their test and they told me this was unnecessary because they knew they would be allowed to re-take the test. I found out later that in many of their classes they were allowed to re-test as many times as necessary to pass the test and thus give the illusion of being proficient.

A Commonsense Approach to Helping Your Child Succeed
If parents haven't done so already -- teach study and organization skills. If they have -- reinforce them. Many kids start off the school year with the best of intentions and then, by the time October or November come around, they fall back into poor work habits. Schools rarely, if ever, teach practical study and organization skills and keep kids accountable so parents should always be vigilant. The holiday break can be a great opportunity to teach these essential skills since, typically, families are together and parents can devote more time to working with their children.

Guardians of Rescue Saves Dogs Suffering from Freezing Temperatures
The perils of hot weather for your pets are well known, but cold weather is equally dangerous for animals. According to the American Veterinary Association, dogs should be kept inside during cold weather; like people, dogs are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia and no pet should be left outside for long periods of time in below-freezing weather. Sadly, not every pet owner takes his or her dog inside during the freezing winter months. Guardians of Rescue, a nationwide animal rescue group, steps up to shelter these cold pets with insulated doghouses and will be traveling this winter from Camden, NJ to Maine providing assistance to those in animals in need.

Defining Success for Your Child
Think back to how you first defined success for your child when you began to read this article. Typically, in that model, we accept our children conditionally: only when they satisfy our idea of how they should act, or what's best for them, by following the path that we feel is best. We set things up so that, in order to gain our acceptance and approval, our child must stay on the success track that we have defined, constantly achieving our conditional benchmarks. We cannot meet our children's fundamental need for acceptance this way. The hamster wheel model reminds us of the futility of this approach.

Secondly, by using social media, spammers can potentially reach millions of people with a single ad or post. Spammers have also developed a variety of ways to spread spam on social networks making it is easier to trick users with appealing visuals beyond the typical spam email.

When the 3-year-old offered the dog the milk from her cereal bowl, the dog attacked her, tearing open her head and staining the sandbox with blood. The little girl's siblings had to pry her head out of the dog's jaws - twice.
