Children of the Grave
We love our children and want the best for them, the best diet, the best education, the best career. But how should we address the most important question of all: "Is there a God?" What about when they ask "Where did I come from?" and "What happens when I die?" Are you ready to look your child in the eye and say, "Darling, this is all there is; after life, nothing but a dusty grave."

When Science Kills Hope
Crossing new frontiers in science seems a laudable and fascinating aim. Branson's lifetime ambition of allowing us all to satisfy our curiosity about weightlessness and the curvature of the earth is achieved. But while most of us who are curious about weightlessness and the curvature of the earth are busily searching the back of the sofa for the odd ?175k to pay for a ticket, millions more are curious about feeding and clothing themselves and getting a good education for their kids, which is still beyond the ability of even the most adept politicians to deliver. Musk's plans for building settlements on Mars have been welcomed with excitement, yet affordable housing is in short supply on earth. Is science becoming an elitist exercise, designing products for the few whilst dashing hope for the many?

Christians get a bad rap in the cool dude stakes. Look at any recent mainstream movie and the Christian in the picture is the one with the serial killer obsession. Christianity is often made to symbolize those things which a modern tolerant society regards as stuck in the past and highly opinionated, holding bigoted views often to the detriment of others and sometimes even lethal! So, when did Christianity become the bad boy religion and is there a cure?

If We Can't See God, Does It Mean He's Not Here?
For thousands of years men and women have believed in invisible entities. Civilizations of every hue and in every geographical location have constructed myths about these entities and called it religion. The earth's natural phenomena are frequently the cause of superstitious beliefs. If we can't explain something, we tend to make up an explanation. Then along came a religion that was different from the rest; Jesus, a man who claimed to be sent from God, indeed a physical manifestation of God, was witnessed by many and his teachings widely reported. This new religion was so convincing that within three centuries it broke the bounds of its geographical limitations, set the known world alight and eventually changed the established religion of the Roman Empire. Today, Christianity rules the lives of billions. But still nobody has seen the God whom Jesus claimed to represent. Is this a problem?

Reconstruction in Nepal After Earthquake 2015
In this paper, I am mentioning about the Earthquake affected and needs of affected peoples after Nepal Earthquake 2015 especially in Dolakha District of Nepal with different sectors. After Earthquake more than 700,000 households were damaged in 14 districts and near 70,000 household damaged in Dolakha district, and papers presenting the situation after earthquake and recovery and reconstruction action taken by Nepal Government. Also present the challenges of permanent house construction in Dolakha. After decades of political instability, Nepal had begun gearing up for a higher trajectory of economic growth; the earthquake upsets the nation's high aspirations for swifter economic progress in the short run. The geodetic network centres including horizontal and vertical control points have been damaged in a manner that will affect reconstruction planning. Nepal's national disaster response framework served as a key role for coordination of earthquake response, facilitating decisions and instructions from central government. Relief work after the major disaster in Nepal has been guided by the natural calamity relief act 1982. The national strategy on disaster risk management provides a strategic direction in covering all phases of the disaster management.

Gilles De Rais - A Christian With The Dark Side
That was the story of Gilles de Rais, a man who considered as the first serial killer in the medieval era. But about his story, many believe that was a victim, due to his political weakness and his enormous fortune. After Gilles death, the Duke of Bretagne took Gilles' fortune and share it among the dukes. We can see that one of them had clearly a motive for destroying Gilles. The conspiracy theory of vanishing Gilles is abolished because the church could not take Gilles' property and only the Duke of Bretagne had the advantage on it.
