Why don't we laugh more often? Mainly because we have learned not to. Parents and teachers spend a good deal of time telling children, " Wipe that smile off your face"; "Get serious"; "Settle down"; and "Stop acting silly." In addition, laughter requires both spontaneity and surrender of control. As people become adults, they place a good deal of value on self control and often feel ambivalent about spontaneity. But a mature adult should also understand the need for levity now and then. When Steven Spielberg was filming the holocaust movie Schindler's list, he became so saddened by his subject that a few times a week while on location in Poland, he called comedian Robin Williams and asked him to run through some stand up routines. If you have a particularly funny friend, you might do the same, but if not, tickle your funny bone with the help of these tips and suggestions. Keep an eye out for the absurdities of everyday of your life. Amusing quips and situations happen all the time. If you look for them, you will find them. Humor is individual. Psychology Today magazine once published 30 jokes and asked readers if they found them funny. More than 140,000 readers from all over the map replied. Every joke was rated "very funny" by some readers and "not all funny" by others. In the words of comedian Henny Youngman, " Humor is a form of communication understood by some and misunderstood by most." Keep a funny book or tape close at hand and dip into it several times a day. Wear humorous buttons and post cartoons, amusing bumper stickers and other witty items where you live, work and play. Those without a sense of humor, once quipped, can be very funny. Of course, they do not mean to be, and when people begin laughing, those who are unintentionally funny may become embarrassed, self conscious or insulted. If this happens to you, try to step outside yourself and see your gaffe the way your audience sees it. Laugh at yourself and people laugh with you, not at you. Do not poke fun at anyone's race, ethnic group, gender, weight, occupation or anything else that might be offensive. Also avoid sarcasm and ridicule. If there has to be a butt of the joke, target yourself or some inanimate object.

A Liberal Party campaign for a marginal seat in the 2013 federal election was reported to be partially funded by a suspected Mafia godfather from Melbourne. Fairfax Media reports the Bruce electorate campaign fundraising dinner, attended by Planning Minister Matthew Guy, was hosted at the alleged Mafia boss's Docklands reception centre on March 1 last year. Premier Denis Napthine says he knows nothing about it and it is not a matter for him. 'It was a federal election candidate, it was run by the Liberal Party, it is not my responsibility,' he told reporters on Friday. 'These questions are best directed to the Liberal Party itself, who organise these fundraising events. 'I know nothing about these matters. I don't even know who they're talking about.' The premier said people were free to refer the issue to anti corruption watchdog IBAC if they felt it was appropriate. The Labor opposition says Dr Napthine and Mr Guy need to answer questions about what they knew. 'These are very serious allegations about Liberal Party fundraisers allegedly linked with the Calabrian Mafia,' Deputy Opposition Leader James Merlino told reporters on Friday. 'There is nothing right about that. 'What did the premier know and when? 'Did Matthew Guy know when he headlined this event that he was doing so with allegedly the Calabrian Mafia?' Federal Liberal MP Russell Broadbent, Mr Guy, state Liberal MP for Hastings Neale Burgess, as well as Bruce candidate Emanuele Cicchiello and former Bass Coast mayor Neville Goodwin attended the fundraiser, Fairfax Media said. Air Jordan 8 Phoenix Suns,The "6" (Air Jordan VI) made its public debut in late 1990. VI is notable for being the sneakers that Michael wore while winning his first NBA Championship. The slanted heel tab was inspired by the look of Jordan's Porsche while the lace locks in the back represented the Air Jordan "Six Rings." In 2010, the shoes were "retro'ed" (a process in which they are re done and re released for promotional purposes) by Nike. The Air Jordan VIs have been through various remodeling to include the 2000 and 2008 Olympic Colorways. The big "10" of Air Jordans represented Michael's first retirement from the National Basketball Association. For the year 1994 the sneaker read "Beyond." Although attempting to be a baseball player, Michael returned to basketball in 1995 due to a long baseball strike the previous year. Jordan's new Air Jordan X's read "45" instead of his former number "23," as that one had already been retired by the Bulls.

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said it had won 34 seats in the first phase of legislative elections, in a breakthrough for the banned but tolerated Islamist group. The Muslim Brotherhood won 20 percent of the overall vote in the first round of Egypt's parliamentary elections, according to initial official results released Wednesday after a day of intense runoff balloting. The Brotherhood, the country's largest opposition group, is officially banned as a political party in Egypt but fielded candidates as independents. It won 30 seats, while the ruling National Democratic Party won 50 seats, the semi official Middle East News Agency reported, quoting judges in counting stations. The results of Tuesday's runoffs and last week's polling the first round in the four week elections mean the Brotherhood has already captured 34 seats in parliament, more than double the 15 it held in the outgoing assembly.

The Muslim Brothers are an important tool in defeating terrorism. They have a lot to gain from free and fair elections in Syria and in a federal Sunni Arab Iraq. As I wrote earlier Every success in the Cold War came from using nationalists against ideologues. In China and Yugoslavia we helped turn a radical ideology into a patriotic party. We can do so against in Egypt.

Air Jordan 8 Phoenix Suns And in relation to one another, they make perfect sense.A public meeting held by the Wyoming Department of Public Transportation a few weeks ago brought a full house to a Bar Nunn elementary school cafeteria. Fifty some Bar Nunnians expressed safety concerns due to increased traffic on Salt Creek Highway the only entrance to their town off the main I 25 interchange just north of Casper.Residential and industrial developments like Granite Peak's Vista Hills residential project and its Bar Nunn Industrial Park have been enthusiastically approved by the town's council, with what some residents say is little concern for the projects' increased effects on existing infrastructure.As residents testified at the meeting that evening with stories of dangerous entrances out of driveways and tricky turns onto Salt Creek Highway economic booms that don't correspond to infrastructure growth create haphazard and irresponsible development patterns.This theme bloomed from the results of a recent study by the Sonoran Institute. Focused exclusively on Natrona County's rural development patterns, the study called for more responsible planning and zoning on the county's part to prevent these disproportionate impacts to county funded infrastructure.The study suggested, among other things, that planning and zoning officials consider impact fees as a way to help developers pay their way for the increased use of county infrastructure.Increased development whether residential or industrial increasingly relies on existing roads, bridges and interchanges for daily use. And though in Bar Nunn's case, Salt Creek Highway is maintained by the town of Bar Nunn and not by Natrona County, the study's recommendation that impact fees be considered by town and county planning officials still applies.In other words, the Salt Creek Highway fiasco is a perfect example of the type of infrastructure overload predicted by research work on Natrona County development.
