Usain Stops Interview

While respecting an opposing country’s national anthem is something you would expect any Olympic athlete to do, we know that is not always the case. Following one of his recent preliminary race’s in London, Usain Bolt was in the middle of an interview when the US National Anthem began playing as Sanya Richards-Ross was being presented with her gold medal. Bolt instantly stopped the interview — which was being aired live — to acknowledge the presentation and show respect for a fellow athlete.

For those of you who are thinking “what’s the big deal,” there are plenty of athletes who would just continue their interview without thinking twice about it. That doesn’t mean they would be disrespecting a fellow competitor or country intentionally, but the fact that Bolt didn’t think twice about it says a lot about his character. He may be cocky and even a bit clumsy at times, but Usain deserves credit for the classy gesture.

Your Desk Tells Me You

What Your Desk Says About You. Aol 

For many people, a desk is much more than just a place to sit and do work. It is quite common for workers to spend more time at their desks in their office than sleeping in their bed at home, so it is inevitable that a desktop eventually starts to resemble the person who sits there. However, this tell-tale information could be defining who you are to your clients, coworkers, and your bosses, and not necessarily in a good way.

Desk Description: Filled with Photos

What It Says About You: Being family-oriented is a positive personality trait, but a desk covered with dozens of reminders of what awaits the worker after hours might make the worker appear less dedicated to his job and anxious to get home.

I See You Through My Emperor's Eyes

The U.S. Fencing Mask is Awesome!  It has the American flag on the front of it so the opponent has to face it while competing.  Reminded me of a Roman soldier named Brutus Maximus, who fought a violent battle with his entire face covered with a mask of steel.  The mask was not cast in his own image, but the image of his emperor, Caesar Augustus.  It's said that he told his enemies, “I see you through my emperor’s eyes.  I represent him on the battlefield.  I am fighting for his glory.” 

It is the same with our “opponent”, Satan.   As a son and daughter of God, whose likeness does the enemy see?
