Why Too Many Startups (er) Suck
When a new drug gets tested, the results of the trials should be published for the rest of the medical world -- except much of the time, negative or inconclusive findings go unreported, leaving doctors and researchers in the dark. In this impassioned talk, Ben Goldacre explains why these unreported instances of negative data are especially misleading and dangerous.
Western countries throw out nearly half of their food, not because it’s inedible -- but because it doesn’t look appealing. Tristram Stuart delves into the shocking data of wasted food, calling for a more responsible use of global resources.
Many think forgiveness is a one-time event. But more often than not, forgiveness has to be a continual process. John and Stacy were married about a year when John had an affair. Though he tried to hide it from his wife, she eventually found out. He earnestly apologized, they sought counseling, and they decided to do their best to repair their marriage. They’ve been together six years now and, by God’s grace, John is faithful to his wife. But, Stacy will have a lifelong journey of forgiveness with her husband. She didn’t uncover his betrayal, say “I forgive you” and then return to normal. No, Stacy has to forgive him often, sometimes daily. Even as he is faithful to her and loves her, small things remind her of the pain she endured. Even seeing an innocent conversation between John and another woman can bring painful fears and memories to mind. When those memories come to mind, she again has to say, “I forgave him.” Jesus said we must forgive “seventy times seven.” Which is another way of saying: over and over, forever. Forgiveness is not something we do once, it is an ongoing process of spiritual growth - essential if you want to effectively reach your world. Whom do you need to forgive today? Will you do it, and be free? And serve the Lord with joy?
