After 3 days i found out that he has blocked me on chat. A few days later, he did so with skype too. Why should he do that after being so close and intimate till the previous night. Is it because of the joke i cracked. I even emailed him not to stay cold and break the good friendship we share. Why should a guy be so close and inttimate with someone if he is still waiting for his GF.

How to Reach Muslim Women Hint: Published on November 14, Credit: Yet, depressingly, in mainstream media, Muslims are still predominantly given a lacks-English-oppressed-terrorist persona. And when represented by fashion and beauty brands, the majority of Muslim women are shown with an uber-cool-light-skin-tone persona. Representation of Muslim women ping pongs between fitting a stereotype or breaking one, not the middle ground where most of us are. Brands seem to believe that casting a Muslim woman as the star of the show ticks the box. Here’s how not to talk to Muslim women:

So suggests new research that tracked changes in two genes thought to help regulate brain growth, changes that appeared well after the rise of modern humans , years ago. That the defining feature of humans — our large brains — continued to evolve as recently as 5, years ago, and may be doing so today, promises to surprise the average person, if not biologists. Lahn and colleagues examined two genes, named microcephalin and ASPM, that are connected to brain size. If those genes don’t work, babies are born with severely small brains, called microcephaly. Using DNA samples from ethnically diverse populations, they identified a collection of variations in each gene that occurred with unusually high frequency. In fact, the variations were so common they couldn’t be accidental mutations but instead were probably due to natural selection, where genetic changes that are favorable to a species quickly gain a foothold and begin to spread, the researchers report.
Mail icon “We are a family. At least that’s what Geneva Hatcher thought when she heard Philadelphia Fire Department brass utter those words at a graduation ceremony when her husband joined the ranks of the city’s bravest in the s, and then again when her daughter followed in his footsteps a generation later. But when push came to shove – when Hatcher’s husband contracted hepatitis C from the job, and when her daughter faced relentless sexual harassment and threats from her peers – all of that talk about family and camaraderie turned out to be a bunch of bull. She watched in disbelief as the people she cared for most were abandoned by the men and women who were supposed to have their backs in life-or-death situations. The city fought Hatcher’s husband, Marcellus “Marty” Hatcher, tooth-and-nail over reimbursing his medical bills while he withered away from his disease in the late s, resorting to dirty tactics – accusing the devout Jehovah’s Witness of being a boozer or a womanizer – instead of offering comfort and support in his final days. Hatcher’s daughter, Lisa Jeter, had to sue the city twice over the come-ons and intimidation she faced after she decided to join what is supposed to be a noble profession. She now sits at home, unpaid, applying in vain for other jobs with the city, away from her tormentors. There was no such thing as ‘family,’ ” she said. He spent more than two decades putting out fires and saving lives. And he was loyal to the organization to a fault.
History[ edit ] Alabama has had six constitutions to date, all established via State Conventions: General overview[ edit ] The Alabama Constitution, in common with all other state constitutions , defines the standard tripartite government. Executive power is vested in the Governor of Alabama , legislative power in the Alabama State Legislature bicameral , composed of the Alabama House of Representatives and Alabama Senate , and judicial power in the Judiciary of Alabama. Direct, partisan, secret, free elections are provided for filling all branches. Disfranchisement after Reconstruction era The length and chaos of the current constitution is both the product and the result of a determined centralization of power in the state government dating from the late 19th century under white Democrats. In addition, because of challenges from Populists in and elections, the Democratic Party intended to reduce the suffrage in order to establish its own dominance; it appealed to people in North Alabama, who had supported Populists, on the grounds of white supremacy. The Democrats raised “the Negro issue” and promised that “no white man would lose the franchise”. The counties have to go to the legislature—and ipso facto uninvolved parts of the state—to get the most basic policy and financial laws passed, which often fail to get the support of the full legislature. The county legislative delegation has decided most local matters during the decades. The legislature’s power was especially strong during the first half of the 20th century, and it was heavily biased in favor of rural interests.

Jack and I had dated for about six months before I started to feel like things between us were seriously cooling off. In the beginning, things had been pretty hot and heavy, with what felt like a fiery mutual interest between us. Once month seven hit, the bottom dropped out. I began acting cold and aloof. I stopped calling and sending cute text messages. I stopped all girlfriend-type behaviors entirely. I withdrew and threw myself into some long-neglected hobbies. Not surprisingly, one rainy Thursday afternoon Jack asked that we meet for coffee.
