effort-and-ease

things always work out anyway. and, when we relax, we get to where we want to go much quicker than when we attempt to force and fight our way to something. because in ease, we are exactly where we want to be. the illusive end point is viewed as a place where they’ll be peace and joy, so it makes sense to allow joy into the present moment, regardless of circumstances. this doesn’t suggest complacency or lack of effort. it simply points towards ease and a beneficial kind of action that is inspired yet effortless

Work

It was the clinic’s last day of operation. While there were certainly still people being treated, the hospitals and other clinics in the city could certainly handle it now. Edward had achieved what he sought to do, lightening the load of the Reach’s doctors and physicians significantly. Gods, that cost so much.

He wasn’t done spending, either. This young scion will be personally overseeing and managing caravans all throughout Kryta and beyond, in an effort to help ease the burdens of the kingdom’s citizens. 

Delphine’s suggestion was a strong one, as most of hers are. 
Still, this was a logistical nightmare.
Edward, of course, was skilled at this. It was how he made his personal fortune. This, though, was not about profit. No, he doubted he’d come out of this in the green. How could he?

On top of financing these caravans, he’s now also managing a fund for Blight research. A hefty sum of gold, meant to inspire and motivate those who may be searching for a cure. Five hundred gold of his own. That number would only grow as people stepped forward to donate.

After all this, he still was left with regret. He had little to spare for Araxus’ pursuit into medical technology and prostheses. He couldn’t even bring himself to write the man a letter. What would he say? “Sorry to be of no use, will try to be less worthless in future xoxo.” No. No, there was no point to it.

He had to be as frugal as possible with his remaining funds. He’d have to put most of his possessions on sale again. Well, the Everyday Edward crowd will likely pay a good bit of coin overall. As funny as the thought was, he couldn’t quite bring himself to laugh. Edward, for the first time in quite a while, was circling the drain. He has but one choice now, unless he wants to live on the street or inn hop. Something he can’t quite afford to do.

He was putting his former home up for sale. At the very least, he’d rent it. Anything of significant monetary or personal value was already in storage, anyway. Just an empty shell was all that was left now. 

Near Claypool, in Roanwilde, an office awaits. It is there, in his childhood home, Lord Edward Saville will work for the good of the realm. 

As much as he’d try to not show it, he was glad to be home.

Shifting my own practice .. I’ve been hibernating for quite a while and now I feel ready to transform my practice with a little Agni (fire)… Key words to progress: balanced action. Nothing ever works if there’s too much effort without ease to balance it out. Somewhere in the field between masculine and feminine, right and wrong, darkness and light … Meet me there❤️ #yoga #balancedaction #action #agni #yogadudes #yogaformen #yogaeverydamnday #guysofyoga #pinchamajurasana #inversionsjunkie #playfulness #gratitude #lovewhatyoudo #followyourheart by bliss_u_yoga https://instagram.com/p/5naCMpHrnr/

South Residence: FAQs

Hey Future Gryphons,

We have been getting TONS of questions and I’m working as fast as I can to try to answer them all (even when I’m not in the office).

In an effort to ease the amount of South Residence Q’s, I can provide some FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions).

Here goes:

How do I know if my room is alcove or corridor?
If your room number ends in 0-5, your room is in an alcove. If your room number ends in 6-9, your room is in the corridor.

What is the difference between an alcove room and a corridor room?
The biggest difference is the fact that an alcove room is located in an alcove and a corridor room is located in the corridor. (Complicated, I know).

How do I know what tower/floor I’m on?
The first number in your room assignment corresponds to the tower.
The second number in your room assignment corresponds to the floor.
Therefore, if your assigned to Seaway 123. You are in the first tower in Seaway (Seaway 1) on the second floor. (And you’re in an alcove, since your room number ends in 3.

What does Valley/Seaway/Grasslands mean?
South Residence is made up of 3 different halls: Maritime, Mountain and Prairie Hall.
Each hall is subsequently divided into four areas.
Maritime: Seaway, Harbour, Schooner, Cove
Mountain: Foothills, Woodlands, Valley, Glacier
Prairie: Grasslands, Tundra, Horizon, Homestead

Got it?

Good!

Calais Migrant Crisis Needs Diplomatic Solution, Yvette Cooper Tells David Cameron

David Cameron should be finding a diplomatic solution to the Calais crisis rather than ‘demonising’ migrants, Yvette Cooper has declared.

In a blog for The Huffington Post UK, the Shadow Home Secretary said that the Government had failed to get a grip on the problem at the French port and had instead resorted to 'incendiary’ language about 'swarms’ of foreigners.

The Prime Minister returned from his Asia trip today and was set to chair a meeting of the emergency Cobra committee in Downing Street to discuss next steps in the crisis.

After a fourth night of migrant disturbances at Calais, it emerged that British troops could join efforts to ease traffic congestion in Kent.

The Daily Telegraph and Times reported that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is understood to be in the early stages of developing plans which could involve using land owned by the department to free up space on the M20.

The Permanent Secretary of the Home Office yesterday met leaders of Kent County Council and agreed it was a national not a local problem.

But with many of the migrants now known to be under-18, Ms Cooper said that “David Cameron’s "swarm” language seems designed to escalate" the fears among some Britons that migrants were ready to storm the country.

“The crisis over Calais is getting worse not better. Yet far from setting out a serious plan to tackle the problem, the Prime Minister is inflaming the politics with incendiary and divisive language instead,” she wrote.

The UK should be giving more help to Kent police and council chiefs to cope with the crisis, while “exercising maximum diplomatic pressure on the French Government” to deal with asylum claims faster, she claimed.

“It appears the Prime Minister has not even discussed the crisis with President Hollande this week. We need a major escalation of the diplomatic effort,” Ms Cooper said.

“Under the last government David Blunkett persuaded France to close Sangatte through determined and intensive diplomacy.

"We need a similar diplomatic intervention now. David Cameron needs to make sure his focus on pre-referendum negotiations with other European countries are not distracting from solving this serious border problem.”

Downing Street has insisted that the UK has been working closely with the French to offer them support rather than criticism during the crisis.

Mr Cameron this week blamed the chaos at Calais on a “swarm” of migrants crossing the Mediterranean and travelling through Europe.

Acting Labour leader Harriet Harman also accused the Prime Minister of trying to whip people up against the migrants saying: “He should remember he is talking about people, not insects”.

Overnight, French security and police were again dispatched to prevent desperate migrants from gaining illegal access to the Channel Tunnel following a week of unrest.

Many of those trying to get across the Channel are teenagers who are either seeking work in the UK’s black market or asylum from their war-torn home countries.

Paul Carter, leader of Kent County Council said it had to deal with two big issues: sorting out the M20 congestion chaos caused by backed up lorries, and the under-age migrant influx.

“Local government has statutory duties to provide care for unaccompanied minors under the age of 18 and those numbers have escalated dramatically in the last four to five weeks,” he said.

“That is connected with more migrants getting on to trains and in some cases boats and presenting at Folkestone or Dover seeking asylum. If they are under 18 we have to care and provide for them.

"About a year ago it was running at about 238 unaccompanied minors under the age of 18 that we were supporting. That is now well over 600 and rising day by day, week by week.”

The council faces a shortfall of £5.5 million in care costs, he added.

The situation has threatened to bring the cross-Channel haulage industry to a halt, with long queues at border control points in England and France.

Upto to a hundred migrants roared as they steamed through police lines at a petrol station near the terminal to gain access to the tunnel.

French gendarmes and riot police at first were overwhelmed by the numbers coming at them but were able to gain control of the situation.

The Labour chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee today told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that it was upto the French authorities to do more to send migrants back to their home countries.

Dr. Christina Greer’s article, “Let’s Think About Cuba,” was featured in the New York Amsterdam News.

She writes:

Congress recently blocked President Barack Obama’s efforts to ease the Cuban embargo, but it now appears the two countries will begin the process of recreating embassies after 55 years. However, the diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba are far from amicable. Robin Hayes, professor at the New School and director of the award-winning documentary “Black and Cuba,” which focuses on the Afro-Cuban-African-American connection, explained to me what was behind the misguided vote in Congress.
