El verso extraño en Hebreos que parece honrar el fracaso

El verso extraño en Hebreos que parece honrar el fracaso

[ad_1] El Abraham y su familia de József Molnár (1821-1899)/Wikipedia/Dominio público Cuando las personas reciben una palabra profética de Dios o sienten que son llamadas a hacer algo, la respuesta suele ser sentarse y esperar a que Dios lo haga. Sin embargo, hay un verso extraño en el libro de Hebreos que sugiere que esta puede no ser la respuesta correcta. Es extraño porque parece promover el fracaso humano de manera inusual. Parece implicar que nuestros esfuerzos, incluso cuando cometemos errores, son loables. En el capítulo 6 de Hebreos, el escritor habla de los grandes hombres y mujeres de fe en la Biblia y nos dice que necesitamos seguir su ejemplo. “Para que no seáis perezosos, sino imitadores de aquellos que por fe y paciencia heredan las promesas”, afirma el escritor (Hebreos 6:12, ESV). Dice que no debemos ser perezosos, que es como traduce la ESV la palabra griega “nōthros”. Otras versiones la traducen como negligentes o holgazanes. Así que el escritor de Hebreos dice que necesitamos imitar a aquellos hombres y mujeres de tiempos …

Narcissism linked to aggression in daily social interactions, study finds

Narcissism linked to aggression in daily social interactions, study finds

[ad_1] Recent work published in the Journal of Personality found that grandiose narcissism and interpersonal antagonism were linked to increased aggression in real-life interactions, especially when combined with negative emotional states. While studies have shown that narcissistic traits correlate with aggression, traditional research often relies on retrospective self-reports or laboratory settings, which may not capture real-time, situational dynamics. In this work, researchers Tianwei V. Du and colleagues used an experience-sampling method to examine how specific dimensions of narcissism influence aggressive behaviors during everyday interactions. This study recruited 477 undergraduate students from a large public university who received four daily prompts via a mobile application to report on their most intense interactions since the last prompt for a duration of 10 days. At the baseline, narcissistic traits were assessed using the Five Factor Narcissism Inventory Short Form (FFNI-SF), which measures various facets of narcissism, including entitlement, exploitativeness, and self-sufficiency. Participants also completed measures of verbal and physical aggression (e.g., “Since the last prompt… I felt like I wanted to hurt someone; I said something offensive to …

3 Best Smart Scales (2024): Luxe, Budget, and All App-Connected

3 Best Smart Scales (2024): Luxe, Budget, and All App-Connected

[ad_1] The humble bathroom scale has long been overdue to learn some new tricks. After all, who needs to devote precious real estate to a device whose purpose is merely to tell you your weight? The “smart scale” category sprung to life in the early days of the internet of things, but early models weren’t always the best, hampered by connectivity issues and general usability problems. As such, the category has largely stagnated; only a handful of companies are now making the devices, and some haven’t updated their product line in years. Only recently has that started to change, as newer, faster, and all-around better products have begun to hit the market again. Not only can newer smart scales track a bevy of health metrics for multiple members of your household via sophisticated mobile apps, but they’ve also ironed out all the kinks, so it’s easier than ever to track your weight. Just how smart can a scale be? And which should you buy? If an accurate weight is what’s most important to you, don’t …

Sign up here to get it every Saturday morning. “During most of my early adulthood, philosophy had little appeal to me,” Elissa Strauss wrote in 2022. “As long as I treated people mostly kindly, what did it matter what I thought about right and wrong, or the nature of knowledge or the universe?” “Until, of course, I had my first child.” Strauss’s son Augie “wanted to know things”—including the sorts of things she couldn’t find much practical use for when she tried taking Philosophy 101 in college. Kids, she soon realized, are instinctive philosophers. Today’s newsletter takes a look at how kids speak and how to speak to them in moments of curiosity, joy, and conflict.

Russia hit by huge missile strike as fascist parade targeted | World | News

[ad_1] Ukrainian strikes have targeted the heart of Russia-controlled Donetsk, striking the “Paradise” restaurant where a celebration was underway commemorating the 10th anniversary of the controversial referendum on the creation of the so-called “Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republic”. The strike, allegedly executed with precision by Ukrainian HIMARS artillery, demolished the “Paradise” restaurant, which reportedly housed Russian soldiers. While there have been no official reports of casualties yet, the strike underscores the intensity of the conflict in the region. This strike comes amid a backdrop of increasing support from the United States for Ukraine. On Friday, the US announced a substantial £319m military aid package for Ukraine, aimed at bolstering its defences against Russian advances, particularly in the northeast Kharkiv region. The aid package includes an array of sophisticated weaponry, including High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), munitions for Patriot and National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems, artillery, anti-aircraft and anti-tank munitions, as well as armoured vehicles and patrol boats. Notably, the State Department also approved an emergency sale of HIMARS to Ukraine, worth an estimated £24m, …

The Asteroid-Mining Renaissance Has Arrived

[ad_1] This article was originally published by Undark Magazine. In April 2023, a satellite the size of a microwave launched into space. Its goal: to get ready to mine asteroids. Although the mission, backed by a company called AstroForge, ran into problems, it’s part of a new wave of activity by would-be asteroid miners hoping to cash in on cosmic resources. Potential applications of space-mined material abound: Asteroids contain metals such as platinum and cobalt, which are used in electronics and electric-vehicle batteries, respectively. Although plenty of these materials exist on Earth, they can be more concentrated on asteroids than on mountainsides, making them easier to scrape out. And scraping in space, advocates say, could cut down on the damaging impacts of mining on this planet. Space-resource advocates also want to explore the potential of other substances. What if, say, space ice could be used for spacecraft and rocket propellant? Or space dirt could be used for astronaut-housing structures and radiation shielding? Previous companies have rocketed toward similar goals before, but they went bust about …

A one-of-a-kind secret Tesla Roadster R&D prototype is for sale

[ad_1] You’ve perhaps heard of the original Tesla Roadster, the car that started Tesla and the EV revolution. Now, a Roadster you probably haven’t heard of is for sale – a one-of-a-kind prototype for a performance package that never saw the light of day. Recently, we got an email tip about an original Tesla Roadster which the owners were about to put up for sale. Normally, we wouldn’t write an article just because someone is trying to sell any old car, even a Roadster (that said, I’m thinking of selling mine). But this email stood out because it came from Jamison Cummings, Tesla’s Chief Technician from the Roadster days, and it was about a particularly special Roadster – and one which most people haven’t heard of. The car, a Tesla Roadster Sport with VIN #1124, was originally bought from Tesla in 2012, then was damaged in an accident and reacquired by Tesla. Tesla’s VP of Service at the time, Joost de Vries, acquired the car and it was repaired and rebuilt under the supervision of Carl …

Eating mixed nuts for 16 weeks might improve insulin sensitivity in the brain, study suggests

Eating mixed nuts for 16 weeks might improve insulin sensitivity in the brain, study suggests

[ad_1] A recent study involving overweight or obese older adults found that consuming 60 grams of a mixture of walnuts, pistachios, cashews, and hazelnuts daily for 16 weeks improved insulin sensitivity in five distinct regions of the brain. However, there were no significant changes in body weight, body composition, or peripheral insulin sensitivity. The research was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates blood sugar levels by facilitating the uptake of glucose into cells for energy production and storage. It helps cells in the body absorb glucose from the bloodstream to use for energy or store as glycogen in the liver and muscle tissues. When blood sugar levels rise, such as after eating, the pancreas releases insulin to help maintain a balanced and healthy sugar level. Dysfunction in insulin production or its activity can lead to metabolic disorders such as diabetes, characterized by insufficient insulin production or ineffective use of insulin by the body. This dysfunction also extends to brain cells, known as brain …
