1 Timothy 2:9 “In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;” (KJV) What is modest apparel according to the Bible? So, essentially, the Apostle Paul is telling all women to dress with reverence and self-control, rather than without reverence (to husband, God, etc) or without self control (one who is addicted to fashion, shows herself in a manner to draw the wrong type of men or attention, etc). --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/tasha-mack9/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/tasha-mack9/support

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K444: Taiwan set for modest rate hike as growth slows Taiwan's central bank increased its benchmark interest rate by a modest amount on Thursday last week, the third hike this year, as it tries to battle inflation without further weighing down its slowing economy. 台灣中央銀行上週四小幅調升基準利率，此為今年第三次升息，因央行試圖對抗通貨膨脹，但同時不讓趨緩的經濟雪上加霜。 The central bank raised its policy rate by 12.5 basis points to 1.625 percent, in line with forecasts of most economists surveyed by Bloomberg. The bank also raised its reserve requirement ratios by 0.25 percentage points. 央行將政策利率上調12.5個基本點至百分之1.625，與彭博社所調查大多數經濟學家之預測一致。央行還將存款準備率上調1碼（0.25個百分點）。 The central bank's decision came hours after the US Federal Reserve hiked interest rates by 75 basis points, the fifth increase this year, to tame rampant inflation. Taiwan's policy makers have been able to be more flexible in their rate hikes, with inflation peaking in the second quarter amid a slowdown in the economy. The central bank raises its rate by a smaller-than-expected 12.5 basis points in June and by 25 basis points in March. 台灣央行做出此決定，是在美國聯準會將利率提高75個基本點──今年以來的第五次升息以抑制猖獗的通貨膨脹──的數小時後。台灣在經濟放緩的情況下，通貨膨脹在第二季達到頂峰；台灣的政策制定者能夠更靈活地升息，央行六月升息12.5個基點，三月升息25個基點，幅度小於預期。 Higher interest rates may help to bolster Taiwan's dollar, which has slumped this year on the back of a stronger US currency, weaker export demand and rising geopolitical tensions. The local dollar was down 4.8 percent against the greenback in the past month, the third-worst performer among Asian currencies. 由於美元走強、出口需求疲軟與地緣政治緊張局勢加劇，台幣今年已經下跌，利率的調升或能有助提振台幣。過去一個月，台幣兌美元下跌了百分之4.8，在亞洲貨幣中表現第三差。 Taiwanese officials have sought to balance tempering inflation without hurting its economy, which has been weighed down by sluggish demand from China, the impact of COVID-19 restrictions on supply chains, and other global headwinds. The government has already cut its 2022 growth forecast twice this year to 3.76 percent. 台灣官員試圖在不損害其經濟的情況下平衡緩和的通貨膨脹，台灣的經濟受到中國需求低迷、新冠疫情限制對供應鏈之衝擊，以及其他全球不利因素的拖累。台灣政府今年已將二○二二年的成長預測下修兩次，至百分之3.76。 “Taiwan's economic slowdown is very apparent, with export growth only in the single digits and manufacturing PMI shrinking,” Ma Tieying, an economist at DBS Group Holdings Ltd, said before the rate decision. “The risk of Taiwan's economic downturn is very high, so from this point of view, increasing by 12.5 basis points is a compromise option and the best option.” 「台灣經濟放緩非常明顯，出口成長只有個位數，製造業採購經理人指數（PMI）萎縮」，星展集團控股有限公司經濟學家馬鐵英在利率決定前表示。「台灣經濟下滑的風險很高，所以從這個角度來看，升息12.5個基點是個折中的選擇，也是最好的選擇」。 Economists surveyed by Bloomberg have also revised down Taiwan's GDP to 3.2 percent for this year. Those polled also expect that Taiwan will raise interest rates again in the fourth quarter to 1.75 percent. 彭博社所訪問的經濟學家也將台灣今年的GDP下調至百分之3.2。受訪者還預計台灣將在第四季再次升息，至百分之1.75。 Export orders from the island have started to slow, gaining 2 percent in August from a year earlier, with orders from China and Hong Kong falling more than 25 percent. Manufacturing is also coming under pressure, with the purchasing managers index dropping in August to 42.7 — its lowest reading since May 2020. 來自台灣的出口訂單開始放緩，八月份比去年成長百分之2，其中來自中國大陸和香港的訂單減少超過百分之25。製造業也面臨壓力，採購經理人指數八月降至42.7，為二○二○年五月以來最低。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2022/09/27/2003785961 歡迎留言告訴我們你對這一集的想法： https://open.firstory.me/user/cl81kivnk00dn01wffhwxdg2s/comments Powered by Firstory Hosting
My life began, like all humans, as a simpleton. I was a child. Then a kid. It was all pretty simple (a good thing since I was a simpleton) until junior high, but that was a million miles away when I was a child. Junior high was only complicated because of relationships - and girls. ;) Things didn't complicate it so much because as long as I didn't stick out like a sore thumb among my peers, I was pretty good. Besides, we were middle-class and so were most of the kids I knew. I didn't grow up really making a distinction between the economic prowess of somebody's parents. In grade school my best friend, Terry lived right across the street from the school in a very modest little frame house. I knew his family wasn't as well off as mine, but it had no impact on my relationship with him, or how I viewed him. It never crossed my mind that my family was somehow better, smarter, more clever, or anything else. But let's not start with the past...let's jump to the present. My son recently turned 42, which prompted me to think about the span between my 42 and my current age, 65. Leaning Toward Wisdom began when I was 42. Twenty-three years is a long time. At 42 I was, like my son, hitting the prime of my professional life. But my life was also growing increasingly complicated. My son was turning 19...so we were in the throes of kids entering college. Junior high kids cost more than elementary school kids. High school kids cost even more. And college kids may cost the most because of college costs...but our kids worked, too...so I'm not sure. Oh, and add the cost of sports during high school and I'd guess it's likely a toss-up between high school and college expenses. At least for us. But I haven't analyzed it. No matter, financially things naturally grow increasingly more complicated as the kid's age. And as we parents age. Enter a bigger house, a nicer neighborhood - all demanding more money upfront and more money ongoing. Enter more cars, more insurance, more maintenance...more complexity. As kids grow up and enter adulthood life grows more complicated because lives are growing more independent. This is exactly what we want as parents, but it's not a simple or easy thing. Especially when your son tells you he's going to leave and move to another state. But you do what you have to do, say what you must, and grind your way through the sadness, sorrow, and worry. Then sometime later, he comes back home and your spirits soar, you feel like you can breathe again and if you're like I was, you dive as fully into being present for your kids like never before (and it's not like I wasn't before, but now it was different). These are complicated years as you attempt to help your kids navigate the unchartered waters of their own lives, in search of their own independence - something we had always tried to help them pursue, especially from high school forward. Birds leaving the nest is a great thing - a terrific achievement. Watching them - admiring them - figure it out was always worthwhile, even during the biggest challenges. We were in it together with a united purpose - preparing them for life in the real world. Preparing them to stand on their own, exercising wisdom to figure it out - and to do it all while putting God first. Those weren't easy years except financially. We were fortunate to have a good income and mostly we didn't fret about money. But we weren't foolish or stupid either. As I've said before, cash-flowing life was our way of life so we were never tempted to live beyond our means. Did we buy some things foolishly? Of course. Did we make some financial mistakes? Yes, I did - most notably trusting a business deal that cost us $50,000 due to my idiocy - something I'll never quite get over thanks to the betrayal of a friend. But these things happen and I mostly got past it, thanks in large part to the fact that such an amount - while large - didn't impact our lives.
It's an impromptu special episode. A few bullet points may be helpful. We've always cash flowed our life, or tried to. Two pivotal milestones impact every American's encore chapter: a) Medicare (when you reach 65) and b) Social Security (when you reach 62 or full-retirement or age 70). Retirement means different things to us than "not working" or "not earning income." We want to continue to earn income and continue to live within our means. Modest living is a goal. Not austere living, but modest living. Frugality is a way of life, unapologetically. We're living our lives for ourselves (and each other). God remains THE priority, but when the encore chapter days arrive, you realize - if you're married - that your lives together are now what remains. And it's great if you put in the work! I'm putting in the work - or trying to. My wife is the most important person in my life. It doesn't mean I don't love kids, grandkids, and the rest of my family, but it means I know I'm not the most important person to them. And I'm good with it. It's the cycle of life and how it ought to be.
A short few months after a near death experience, we caught up with Mike Galati of Modest Merch. Still healing, Mike is cranking out shirts at his shop, which halted operations after his accident, but kept it's doors open thanks to this amazing print community rallying behind his GoFundMe. Topics of discussion include: Mopeds, printing for bands, Victory Records, Flying solo vs hiring help, contract printing, nightmare emails, crocs, kickflips, and tagging your printers.

This week's episode kicks off with a look ahead to this week's admissions deadlines for Oxford / Said and ISB. Graham and Alex also discussed the current activity on MBA LiveWire from those applying to Columbia Early Decision and J-Term rounds. Graham noted two recently published Adcom Q&As, from the ISB and UC Irvine; he then brought up the recent publication of a 'Real Numbers' piece on the percent of students who are US minorities at the top programs in the United States. This led to a discussion regarding the important distinction between being an under-represented minority versus an over-represented minority; where Alex drew parallels from the international student cohort. Graham also highlighted the upcoming essay workshop series, which begins on September 14 with admissions representatives from Berkeley / Haas, Yale SOM, Chicago / Booth, Cornell / Johnson and Wharton / U.Penn. Signups are here: https://bit.ly/clearadmitfall Before diving into the three candidates featured this week, Alex and Graham talked about the upcoming webinar for Clear Admit+ members (today, August 28th at 12 pm ET!). The episode then moved into the breakdown of three ApplyWire entries: First up, Alex picks a candidate who is a dual citizen (an Eastern European country and the United States) and has a very strong professional background. Their work experience and extracurriculars might well be decent - and their GPA of 3.5 is solid. The big issue is the 312 on the GRE. Alex and Graham really hope they plan to retake the test, even if this means pushing their candidacy to Round 2. This week's second candidate is from the GCC region, working for a Sovereign Wealth Fund. Their work experience looks impressive (and unique!), they also appear to have strong extracurriculars. Their GPA is low (3.1) and their GMAT is rather modest for top programs (700). Alex and Graham encourage this applicant to retake the GMAT, which may also help them overcome the more modest GPA. Our final candidate this week is an Indian candidate who is working in Dubai, and wants to return to Dubai post-MBA. They appear to have decent work experience and are active in their community; this activity has helped shape their long term goal, and both Alex and Graham like that connection. They do have very respectable numbers (740/3.78) to round out what appears to be a strong profile. This episode was recorded in Paris, France and Cornwall, England. It was produced and engineered by the infinitely talented Dennis Crowley in Philadelphia, PA, home of the suddenly surging Philadelphia Phillies.

Modest clothing is a multi-billion dollar trend, with designers seeking inspiration from cultures where dressing modestly is the norm. There are millions of images tagged as #modestfashion on Instagram or Tik Tok, from prairie dresses to designer hijabs. Ernie Rea explores the religious reasons from the Abrahamic faiths about why some cover up, and asks if our ideas of modesty are changing. He's joined by Dr Shuruq Naguib a lecturer of Islamic Studies at the University of Lancaster, Dr Lindsay Simmonds a research fellow at the London School of Jewish Studies and Molly Boot, a theologian training for ministry in the Church of England. They discuss what rules they apply to the way they dress and the historic and scriptural basis for their understanding of modesty. What is the requirement of men to dress modestly in faith traditions and what role do sexuality, shame and purity have in the way some people of faith understand they have to dress? Plus, cultural journalist Hafsa Lodi explains why, for her, the modest fashion industry poses a paradox, and we hear from male blogger Zaahid.

This week's episode of WireTaps kicks off with a discussion on the percentage of international students at the top US MBA programs. There is quite a difference in the numbers at Stanford and Columbia versus Wharton and Harvard; Alex and Graham speculated as to the reasons. Your hosts also noted the upcoming MBA admissions deadlines for Round 1, which begin at the end of August. Graham then highlighted an upcoming webinar (August 17) featuring alumni who appeared in our Real Humans series to discuss their career paths. You can sign up here: https://bit.ly/realhumanswebinar Graham also highlighted the upcoming Essay Workshop Series, which includes three events; September 14, September 21 and September 28. And of course, your hosts also chatted about Clear Admit+ https://www.clearadmit.com/clearadmit-plus-members/ As always, this episode features in-depth analysis of three candidate profiles: First up, Alex selects a female candidate with a super GMAT (750) and more modest GPA. She appears to have done well at work (two promotions) and is very active outside of work, including starting a non-profit. She's aiming high, as she should; Alex and Graham thought she might also consider Northwestern / Kellogg and possibly MIT / Sloan. This week's second candidate hails from Hungary, which will make them under-represented. Their GMAT is very good (730) but their GPA is (again) a little light. We wonder about the conversion, and what the class rank is. They've completed a masters degree, which is good, but they'll also need to address, in more detail, why the MBA at this stage. The work experience does look good, but Alex and Graham note a lack of information/insight on any additional non-work interests and activities. However, your hosts do think there are some good possibilities for a candidate from a country that is under-represented. The third candidate hails from Brazil with a super GMAT (a bit of a theme for this podcast) and four years of investment banking experience. They have applied to Columbia Early Decision and we think that the credentials they have provided look very positive. They are concerned with some possible negative interaction with a current student, and the implications of that... This episode was recorded in Paris, France and Cornwall, England.

Welcome back! Today Katie and Alexis are talking about modesty and what the Bible says about this topic. We are reminded that modesty is not just in our dress but in our actions and heart as well. We dive into our own personal stories how God has transformed our hearts and minds in this realm. Definition: the quality of not being too proud or confident about yourself or your abilities. Or: propriety in dress, speech, or conduct. What does the Bible refer to when it talks about modesty? When we look at ourselves, (examining the interior & exterior) do we look like we are disciples of Christ or the world? What is my heart posture? — A godly person strives to do everything with a “God-ward” perspective. “The key to understanding what constitutes modesty in dress is to examine the attitudes and intents of the heart. Those whose hearts are inclined toward God will make every effort to dress modestly, decently, and appropriately. Those whose hearts are inclined toward self will dress in a manner designed to draw attention to themselves with little or no regard for the consequences to themselves or others.” (gotquestions.org) --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thefreedompodcast/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thefreedompodcast/support

This episode kicks off with some talk about the activity on MBA LiveWire, which included Harvard's decision release for its 2+2 program, as well as some additional waitlist movement. Graham highlighted some tidbits from the Adcom Q&As recently published, for Northwestern Kellogg and Chicago Booth, as well as a 'Real Numbers' piece focused on average GRE scores; kudos goes to Yale SOM with a median score of 331! Graham also noted the upcoming MBA essay workshops, beginning this Wednesday with Berkeley Haas, Chicago Booth, Dartmouth Tuck, and UVA Darden; signups are here: https://bit.ly/cambaessays Alex and Graham also leaked some information about a special project the Clear Admit team has been working on for the past several months, which we anticipate will launch later this month - stay tuned for details! As usual, the show features breakdowns of three candidates, this time from a set of ApplyWire entries: First up is an army veteran who enlisted prior to going to university, and post-university has been working in real estate. This is an unorthodox pathway, but he appears to be doing very well in his current work environment. Alex and Graham discuss some of the challenges he will face in the admissions process as an older candidate, and also consider whether other types of graduate management programs might be appropriate. Our second candidate has had to overcome some medical challenges, which has set him on a pathway in the healthcare arena. He appears to have really excelled and has all the ingredients necessary for a candidacy to top programs, this includes terrific numbers (740/3.68). Finally we discuss a candidate who has a stellar GMAT (770) but less-than-stellar GPA (3.07). This is something they might need to address in their optional essay. They work in the construction industry with goals in the renewable energy space. This episode was recorded in Cornwall, England and Paris, France.

Modest legal steps that would go unnoticed in most countries are—in Nicaragua's case—clear evidence that it is “inching toward dictatorship.” The post Nicaragua a ‘Dictatorship' When It Follows US Lead on NGOs appeared first on FAIR.
Today we're talking about modesty, what the Bible says about it, and the "controversy" surrounding Matthew West's "Modest Is Hottest" video. West caused quite a stir on social media with the now-deleted video and reignited the ongoing debate about modesty and purity culture. Although there are certainly some harmful aspects to purity culture as many of us experience it, the Bible gives clear examples of what God's expectations are regarding modesty. --- Buy Allie's book, You're Not Enough (& That's Okay): Escaping the Toxic Culture of Self-Love: https://alliebethstuckey.com/book Relatable merchandise- use promo code 'ALLIE10' for a discount: https://shop.blazemedia.com/collections/allie-stuckey Learn more about your ad choices.
