Telling Everyone, "I Need To Win The Lottery?" Use The Seguro Ndabene Formula

Are you going around telling everyone, “I need to win the lottery?” They may be getting tired of hearing it, and you’re probably tired of saying it. One way of turning that tired old saw into a something new like, “I won the lottery,” is to apply the Seguro Ndabene Formula.

Have you heard about Seguro?

He’s a man who has won five Canadian lotteries. He has won $1 million in the Western 6/49 in 2004; $100,000 in the Super 7 Extra in Calgary in 2006; $1 million and $50,000 in the Western 6/49 in Airdrie, Alta., in 2008; and $17 million in January 2009.

The last one was disputed because no one could believe he could win legitimately that often, but Seguro finally settled and got his winnings. Because he did win legitimately. You know why?

Because he didn’t need to.

That’s the short answer, and it’s the key to the formula.

But here’s the longer answer.

Seguro knew he was going to win before he won, but even though he knew that, he also knew that if he didn’t win, that was okay too. Seguro was okay with how things were. He was secure. He felt abundant.

And so, of course, he created more security and more abundance.

Seguro Ndabene’s mindset and feelings creates the winning formula:

Feel the way you want to feel. Add to that, knowing that you will win. Add to that, enjoying life the way it is now. And you get lottery wins.

So the formula is: Feeling good + knowing + accepting = winning.

So how do you go about filling in the parts of the formula. How do you feel secure and abundant when you don’t feel that way?

How do you feel it when you’re facing bankruptcy or you’re working four jobs or your house is in foreclosure or you’re eating beans every night because you can’t afford anything else?

You take every opportunity you have to retreat from physical reality and enter the reality of your mind.

Did you know that your subconscious mind can’t tell the difference between images in your head and the real thing?

If you feel, in your imagination, like a happy, content, secure, abundant person, your subconscious mind things that’s what you are. And it will start seeing the world accordingly.

The way your subconscious mind sees the world determines what you notice or don’t notice. When you’re subconscious thinks you’re secure and abundant, you’ll naturally begin to notice all the things that make you feel that way. You don’t have to have money to feel that way. You can feel secure in love and in other ways.

When you begin using the power of your mind to create the mindset that attracts things like lottery wins, you access the power of the Seguro Ndabene formula. That’s when you’ll stop saying, “I need to win the lottery,” because in your mind, you already have. And in no time, your physical reality will match up with your mental reality.

Are The Elected Officials Aware Of The Wide Range Of Important Education Issues?

Public education is one of the most important institutions in our country, an institution in which the public has always played a role. It is the public who elects school board members, pays taxes to support public schools, votes for school bond referendum, and visits and volunteers in the schools. Public schools, in turn, transmit important values and information that help young people participate in our democracy and become responsible citizens. Clearly, education is important to all members of society given its impact on the community, the economy, jobs, safety, and health.

– The skill level of the population increases national productivity and leads to higher salaries.

– The better educated a person, the more likely that person is to report being in excellent or very good health.

– The more education a person has, the more likely that person is to be registered to vote and to actually vote.

– There is a strong relationship between the drop-out rate and crime among many young males

Many candidates are vocal about their support for public education, but voters can do a lot to ensure that elected officials are aware of the wide range of important education issues, and that they honor their commitment to education. This voter guide is designed to help voters focus on important education issues and ask political candidates and office holders informed questions.

Strong Public Education Candidates:

– Know about school reform and ways to improve public schools

– Know education policy; the federal, state, and local laws that govern public education; and the responsibilities of the desired office

– Make education a high priority in their political platform

– Solicit opinions and viewpoints from citizens through polling, town meetings, community conversations, and face-to-face discussions

– Have prior experience with public education policy

– Have a clear message about public education priorities

– Have a realistic funding plan to support public education improvements and ensure adequate resources for all schools

– Communicate who will be held accountable for student and school performance

Questions for Candidates

A quality public education requires the assurance of basic physical needs: shelter, nutrition, physical safety, sleep, and exercise. Quality education begins at an early age with the development of cognitive and social skills. A candidate who supports education will have a clear position on a wide range of health and other children’s issues.

– What proposals, if any, do you offer for public programs to support underserved children?

– What is your position on the value and importance of education?

– What are your top priorities for improving public education?

How well students achieve is only partly determined by students themselves. Schools play an important role, and elected officials at every level have some say in how schools are run and who is held responsible for student achievement. Strong education candidates understand the role their offices play in public education, and should be able to articulate what they will do to improve school quality.

– Who do you think should be responsible for ensuring that public schools operate effectively and children achieve?

– If elected, what responsibility and authority would you have for public education?

– What do you believe are the best ways to evaluate school and student performance?

– How would you evaluate teacher quality?

Most candidates for office support quality and improvement in public education, but their proposals for how to pay for public education vary widely. A strong education candidate should have developed a viable plan for school funding.

– What are your views on how much is spent on public education and whether this amount is adequate?

– What changes, if any, would you make to the existing education funding structure?

– What is your position on current pending court cases that would affect funding for education in the state?

– What programs and areas do you consider most vital and deserving of the highest protection from budget cuts?

– How would you fund the program and policy changes you are proposing?

– Do you have any tax proposals to offer for public school funding?

– Do you support generating funds for public education through taxes on liquor, tobacco, lotteries, casino gambling, slot machines, or through any other “sin” taxes or revenues?

– What is your position on bilingual education?

– Do you believe the amount spent for students classified as “special needs” is adequate? What changes would you make, if any, to support these students?

– What is your stance on school choice?

– What is your stance on the adequacy of school facilities?

Why Games As A Service Will Kill Video Games

Video games have been around for quite some time now. They are many peoples favorite past time, and even a way to make money. Playing video games turned from a hobby to a job very quickly, especially when video and live streaming platforms like YouTube and Twitch came to rise. With these platforms, many people picked up their controllers hoping that they would become the next gamer who makes millions doing what they love. With more people playing games the developers for the games need to dish out better and more up to date products. Even if these products are not the best, they do it all for the money in the end, because it is a business.

When video games were first released they were an incredible feat and all were unique in their own way. Even though they did not look that great back in the 80’s and 90’s they offered something that even a lot of games today don’t offer. And that something is quality. Within the last 5 years or so video games started to become more of a service than an actual piece of entertainment. Slowly top Triple A developers started to incorporate microtransactions in their games, very different from DLC (Downloadable Content). DLC was always an expansion or more added content to make the game have more playability, in turn making the gamers more entertained and wanting more. The problem lies within video games that try to sell pieces of their game that should have been for free or unlocked by actually playing the game instead of just putting in a credit card number to unlocked said heroes or items. This is a common practice recently and it has raised a lot of issues, and even many countries consider “loot boxes” gambling, which in reality it is. A loot box in video games is when a player either uses in-game currency or real currency to get a random item or a random set of items. Now the value of these items is based on a scale, some players will receive rare or higher quality items compared to others simply based on odds. This is mainly aimed at the younger gamers who are more naive and are willing to spend whatever money they have on a game to make themselves look cooler or play better. All just to get ahead of the curve.

This practice is extremely dangerous not only because it promotes gambling to children, but it can be extremely addictive. There are many cases in which people spend thousands of dollars just to get a single item or to buff up their character or team. Clearly, the developers do not care, because it is just more money for them, but they never look at what this can do to a person’s livelihood and even their families.

The main reason these practices are implemented is for the developers to keep generating money even after the game is released. Based on the statistics microtransactions make more overall than the game itself, and those types of game series are released on a yearly basis with little to no changes in the actual video game itself. It is extremely rare to find a completed game at any store or marketplace that doesn’t offer micro transactions, even if they do not impact gameplay it still is a major issue.

If developers want to keep gamers entertained and invested in their video games then they should develop quality games instead of creating games that are barely finished loaded with micro transactions. The games as a service trend are slowly killing the quality of video games. Sooner or later people will not even be allowed to fully own the game, everything will just be a rental, but the player still needs to buy a code to play the rental and then pay the rental to play the game which is not even theirs. Look how crazy that sounds!? The only way this all will change is if the player chooses to change.

Michael Clayton Bluray Review

Fresh from the success of furnishing the scripts for the extremely lucrative Bourne franchise, Tony Gilroy was given the rare opportunity to make his directorial debut with his own original screenplay Michael Clayton, an intricate, character-driven suspense story which finally confirms George Clooney to be one of the most distinguished screen actors of his generation.

Clooney plays the title role, a ‘fixer’ with a prestigious New York City law firm; he is an opaque figure who, as a former criminal prosecutor, is uniquely gifted at his job which usually involves finding legal loopholes exonerating high paying clientele from their dubious actions as typified by his late night call to a wealthy businessman (Denis O’Hare) who has just been involved in a hit and run accident.

You can tell from the opening moments of Michael Clayton that it’s going to be a thoughtful film, methodically paced but exceedingly tight, reminiscent of the conspiracy thrillers made by Alan J. Pakula (The Parallax View) or Sydney Pollack (Three Days of the Condor) in the 1970s. Not surprisingly Gilroy enlisted the help of Pollack who appears here, in one of his last roles in front of the camera, as Clayton’s boss and the firm’s senior partner Marty Bach.

Michael is a complex character with a history of gambling, he is currently in debt to a loan shark due to a failed restaurant venture with his drug-addicted brother and he is being put under great pressure to come up with the money. The firm are currently defending a class-action lawsuit filed against fictional pharmaceutical giant U-North and their leading attorney Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson) has a mental breakdown during a deposition, stripping off his clothes and declaring undying love for one of the key witnesses.

It transpires that Arthur has been diagnosed bipolar and it’s not the first time Clayton has been called in to salvage the mess caused by the disorder whilst he’s off his medication. U-North’s general counsel Karen Crowder (Tilda Swinton) has Edens put under surveillance and discovers that he’s in the possession of a report proving their latest product is carcinogenic and that he’s about to ‘go rogue’ and expose this publicly just as they’re closing in on a settlement deal.

Michael Clayton is “total cinema” at its very best; woven of a semi-byzantine plot line and meticulously framed cinematography, steeped in the thought processes and actions of acutely convincing central characters, the usually buoyant Clooney really bares his soul in this film like no other, whilst Wilkinson and Swinton deliver unshakable supporting performances. In many ways it’s the antithesis of the Bourne movies yet despite lacking outright action sequences it still clutches audiences, bringing them to the edge of their seats.

I am gratified that I went to see Michael Clayton at the cinema when it first came out in 2007; I know I am amongst a minority who managed to catch it as it appeared on very few screens for only a brief stint. I am willing to go out on a limb and claim that in time it will likely be remembered as the film of its decade and I’m hopeful that the Blu-ray release will introduce it to a wider audience.

There is nothing flashy about the 1080p VC/1 transfer, the soundtrack is a standard Dolby Digital 5.1 mix and apart from an informative audio commentary from writer/director Tony Gilroy and his brother John, also the movie’s editor, there are no extras to speak of, no matter because Michael Clayton is exactly the kind of cinematic gem that doesn’t need a deconstructive light shined on it in order to be appreciated but rather should be wallowed into in the dark, with the comforting knowledge that from time to time they do make them like this anymore (sic).
