Hi,

Does anyone know of a widget that allows you to set developer options from the widget?

There are plenty that act as a shortcut to the developer options screen, including the very nice one that i'm currently using, but i'd prefer to be able to do it all from the widget.

Inside the ADHD Brain!

Het word me keer op keer gevraagd. En het is moeilijk uit te leggen als je zelf iets ervaart als normaal. Maar ik vond een leuk stuk tekst die het goed uit legt. Maar wel in het Engels.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ADHD Its Like Sitting in a Room With Thousands of TVs

Putting yourself in someone else’s shoes is easy — just pull them on and tie the laces. But putting yourself in someone else’s brain? That’s beyond difficult, especially when that brain is moving in a million different directions at once.

I often wonder what people think it’s like to have ADHD. Do they think it’s like losing a train of thought? Or having too many meetings crammed into one afternoon? While I can’t speak for other people with the disorder, I can speak for my husband and our five ADHD children. ADHD affects every aspect of their lives from the moment they wake up until they go to sleep. There is a simple reason for that: It’s the way their brains are wired, so it affects how they take-in, process, and retrieve information about — literally — the whole world. One of the most helpful things for me over the many years spentparenting, teaching, and raising my family has been learning how their brains work.

Once we were talking about social expectations and boundaries for one of my daughters’ graduations when my son announced that I had ADHD by proxy. I didn’t understand at first but then he went on to say that I had come to understand their experience and way of thinking so well that it was like my DNA had changed and I had become an honorary ADHDer. That may be one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received. It’s certainly been a great gift to see through their eyes and learn more about the ways they experience the world. Here are just four of many things I’ve come to understand about their beautifully complex minds:
1. No Such Thing As a Filter

While a “normal” or neurotypical person has a “gatekeeper” that controls input by filtering out unimportant information, the ADHD brain has none. It takes everything in. Think about how overwhelming it would be if all your senses brought in everything around you, nothing was sorted, and everything was labeled “important.” Once I started to see my ADHDers experiences in those terms it became easy to see why they often held on to the wrong information or didn’t register the right information.

One of our daughters described it this way: “I feel like I’m sitting in a room with thousands of televisions all playing different movies and shows. My mind jumps from one screen to another not knowing which I should be watching, unable to just focus on one of them.”

Tips and tricks: Our ADHDers have learned to separate and break things down so they can focus in on one thing. One daughter compared it to sorting a bag of M&Ms into separate colors. She sorts the thoughts and incoming stimuli so she can zero-in and hyper-focus on one thing at a time.
2. Overstimulated and Overwhelmed

As you can imagine, without being able to filter information, an ADHDer is constantly bombarded.

It all builds up quickly. In my experience, being overstimulated turns to frustration. In our house we see two reactions to being overstimulated: those who who act out, and those who turn inward. ADHDers who act outwardly on their frustration become loud, boisterous, even angry or violent. The ones who turn that frustration inward become anxious, high strung, upset and look like they’re shutting down or about to implode.

Regardless, when a person with ADHD is overstimulated, they need to clear the slate. It’s like pushing a reset button. The reset button is unique to the individual. What works for one may not work for another.

Tips and tricks: Take a break. We’ve found that getting away from the stimulus is critical. Find a quiet place to sit for a few minutes. Engaging fidgets can help keep a situation from becoming overwhelming. For instance, our kids draw, count, write, drum fingers or bounce their knees to find a calm balance.
3. I Forgot — No, Seriously

Problems accessing, retrieving, and using memory is one of the biggest frustrations I see in my ADHDers. Sometimes I forget how hard it is for them because I’m focused on my own frustration at having to repeat instructions and refocus them over and over. I’ve seen the fallout from this trait in some interesting ways. For example, while impulsiveness is partially to blame for ADHDers blurting out information or speaking out of turn, it isn’t the only reason. Mine will apologize for blurting and frequently add, “If I don’t say it right now I’ll forget.” There’s a pleading in their voices that speaks to the seriousness of forgetting for them. We’ve seen this fear in messy bedrooms where everything has to be in plain sight for fear of losing it. We’ve also seen it in hoarding-esque behaviors because they are afraid to get rid of anything for fear of forgetting the memories associated with those items.

Tips and tricks: To help our kids remember things, we use checklists, sticky notes, and email or texts. Be specific. Generalizing doesn’t help. For organization, we’ve used clear bins and shallow shelves so everything can be visible. Creating a scrapbook with pictures and smaller items can help preserve memories for years (and even generations) to come.
4. Too Many Thoughts to Think

One of my sons has been high strung and intense since he was very young. One night he looked so overwhelmed, like he was about to burst. I casually asked, “What’s wrong, are you swimming in your own thoughts?” His answer was desperate and profound: “I’m not swimming. I have so many thoughts there’s no room to move or swim.”

He’s not alone in his experience. Most ADHDers I talk to live every waking minute of their day in this same state. My husband describes it as an array. The mention of one word or thought opens up thousands more, going out in all directions.

Tips and tricks: All those ideas and thoughts need to go somewhere outside of their heads. Keeping a journal or accordion folder for ideas allows them to be written down and pursued later. We tell our kids to keep the writing brief, just enough to remember the idea so they don’t get distracted by writing it down.

Living life with ADHD is really no different than learning to live life with any other medical condition. It just takes time to find those coping mechanisms that work. While life is never going to be perfect or easy, it can become manageable.

Israeli MK Ahmed Tibi earns Israeli taxpayer money for supporting Arab terror.
“Nothing is more exalted than those whom Israel dubs ‘terrorists-shahids,’” he said. In local Arab culture, the word – which literally translates as “martyrs” – is used to refer to those who die while trying to murder Israelis. “In the history and struggles of nations, the shahid is the ultimate glory,” Tibi told his audience at that time. “There is no value more August than the Shahada (the act of dying for Allah.) The shahid is the trailblazer, drawing with his blood the path to freedom and liberation. The shahid is the symbol of the homeland.”

I will always remember the night I reluctantly entered church for the first time in over a decade. I had no idea that my decision to go there was to change my life forever. How naive I was as I looked round at all the other people there filled with deep feelings of insecurity and a fear that if they only knew how bad a person I was, then they would surely reject me. I could barely look people in the eyes, as I was just so full of shame and self-loathing and I was secretly hoping that nobody would talk to me incase they found out the truth about the filthy drug addict sat in their midst.  

My feelings of insecurity were amplified by the fact that I had entered a very middle class church and was living in a drug rehabilitation unit at the time. Indeed I had only gone that night to have a break from all the bickering and backstabbing of those who were also in treatment at the same time. I really did not know how to communicate with those who I subsequently placed on pedestals and so I clung closely to the person I was with, who had suggested that a night out in church might be a good idea. 

As the evening wore on and the service entered a time of worship, I felt so uncomfortable that the people were singing and waving their arms in the air. I had never encountered anything like it before and I just could not relate to any of what I was witnessing. I started to wonder if I was in the middle of a cult, but this was short lived as the collection plate came towards me and I started to panic. I knew that I had no money with me and I was so ashamed of this that I tried to make it look like I was putting money in by opening my hand over the plate as it came past me. At that point in my life I was a 24 year old with no money, no qualifications, no friends and very few possessions.  I had grown up on a council estate in Greater Manchester and so I had never really learnt to associate with the kind of people whom I suddenly found myself in the midst of. To add to my sense of unease I saw myself as nothing other than a tattooed drug addict with a history of incarceration and as a no good loser who had left a trail of destruction in the lives of those who I had come into contact with over the years. 

On that particular night I had been clean of drugs for only a few weeks and so my confidence was at an all time low. I was terrified of anyone discovering my shameful secrets and so I kept going to the toilet to wipe the perspiration away that was pouring from me due to the self-obsessed fear and sense of unease that was almost paralyzing me. I seriously contemplated running out and returning back to the rehab, but to do so would have meant that I had to walk past several people sat near the door and I couldn’t bring myself to do that incase any of them questioned why I was leaving early. The first hour or so at the service was therefore spent wallowing in the painful self-obsession as I constantly worried about what I looked like, what I was wearing and what I would say if anyone talked to me.  I tried to relieve some of the emotional turmoil by focusing on the women around me and fantasizing that there might be a chance of finding a partner, but everywhere I looked all I could think was there was no chance anyone of them would ever date a loser like me. 

I don’t know exactly what triggered it, but at some point I suddenly became aware of the words of the preacher. He was talking about addiction and referred to a God shaped hole inside each of us that can only be filled with a relationship with Jesus. I was intrigued as I could relate to a lot of what he was saying, not least as it reminded me of the words of others who had shared The Gospel with me over the years, even though I rejected it at the time. 

At the end of the sermon the preacher invited those in the congregation who felt prompted, to step forward and repent. I remember being filled with the desire to go forward, but I was too self-obsessed and afraid of what people would think if I did, so I just sat down and did nothing. Many people went forward that night, but the preacher continued to say that he believed that there was someone who was really struggling to step forward due to fear. He then said the words that left me no choice because I knew they were for me. Just prior to that moment I was sweating badly and my heart was beating so fast that it felt like it was going to pop out of my chest at any moment. Then the preacher said, there is someone here now who feels like there heart is going to pop out of their chest, and so with that I rushed to the front and fell to my knees in tears.

I do not actually remember what happened next as I sat on the floor, other than being prayed for by someone and then leaving the church to go back to rehab. That night I could think of nothing else other than what had happened at church. I waited till everyone was in bed before closing my eyes and began to pray. I got down on my knees again and repented of the things I had done in life. Despite going to church as a child and going through the motions of repentance, I was suddenly aware of God listening to my cries and I felt genuinely sorry, because I had hurt so many people in my life up to that point. I can see now how unlike my previous prayers of repentance, I meant it wholeheartedly this time and I remember what felt like a cool breeze come over me. I thought that the wind had come into the room, and so I checked all the doors and windows, but they were closed and the heating was on. I now believe this to be the Holy Spirit.

I went to bed that night with a peace that I had never experienced in my life and so began a journey that would ultimately help me get clean from the drugs, and in which the Lord has healed me from all the self-hatred and fear of man. I actually like who I am now, not in a narcissistic way, but in coming to understand my true identity in Him. I should confess however that having felt less than others for so many years, I now see how I went to the other extreme of becoming self-righteous and wrongfully judging others. I did not see it at the time, but there were subsequently many times that I would act from a place of pride and ego, and started to behave like I was the second coming. Okay this is slightly tongue in cheek, but I shudder now when I think about how I would use my newfound freedom to put others down due to my arrogance and pride. Sadly I had no idea that I was doing this, until The Lord took me out of church and into a spiritual wilderness to be stripped of everything that I thought was good, but had in fact simply imprisoned me once more. It is only now that The Lord has dealt with that particular beam in my eye, that I can also see why I would spend many years trying to convince myself and others that I was some kind of Super Christian, when deep down inside I was still full of shame and self-loathing and desperate for man’s affirmation.

I would therefore like to finish this particular testimony by quoting the words of Paul in Romans 12 to encourage anyone who may see a little bit of themself in this testimony.

Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith

Rest assured that God can deal with self-hatred, self-loathing, anger, fear, pride, drug addiction etc, but we must believe, repent and humble ourselves before the Him and be prepared to experience The Cross. There is no other way, but the reward of being prepared to lay down your life is that in doing so you will find a new life and a life in abundance that you never imagined possible.

February 8
Psalms 17:3
Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; though hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

Being a teacher for thirty years teaches you an awful lot. Ann had seen just about every trick in the book. The minute her back was turned, children would try all kinds of things. Often she would leave the room for a few minutes, just to see who her problem children were going to be. She would return suddenly and catch them in all stages of misbehavior. There were the exceptions, of course. Some children sat quietly whether she was in the room or not. Those children were rate treasures, but they often helped her keep her sanity.
 
All of us behave differently when we think we're being watched. Usually, we are on our best behavior when we know that someone else is around. The funny thing is, somebody is always with us: God. Is God pleased when He sees the way we act when we're alone? It is a wise person who tries to live righteously all the time, both when others are with him or her as well as when he or she is alone. God will help us be the people we are meant to be, if we will only ask. No one is more deserving of our best behavior than God.
 
Prayer: Lord, help me to give You my best,  Keep me ever mindful of Your presence, and be proud of who I am becoming. Amen.

"Solar Powered Tulips"
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"An art, which has an aim to achieve the beauty, is called a philosophy or in the absolute sense it is named wisdom.

You must learn to be still, in the midst of activity - and to be vibrantly alive, in repose. Be in the body, and become a living soul: while with an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.

We become just by doing just acts, we become temperate by doing temperate acts, we become brave by doing brave acts. 

The purpose of life is to believe, to hope, and to strive. There are hopes, the bloom of whose beauty would be spoiled by the trammels of description; too lovely, too delicate, too sacred for words, they should only be known through the sympathy of hearts.

There is not love where there is no will. One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest. 

You have to have courage - courage of different kinds: first, intellectual courage, to sort out different values and make up your mind about which is the one which is right for you to follow. You have to have moral courage to stick up to that - no matter what comes in your way, no matter what the obstacle and the opposition is. People with clenched fists cannot shake hands. 

Humans have got to follow their passion. They have got to figure out what it is they love - who they really are. And have the courage to do that ... the only courage anybody ever needs is the courage to follow their own dream. Hope is the strongest driving force for a people. Hope which brings about change, which produces new realities, is what opens human's road to freedom.

Once hope has taken hold, courage must unite with wisdom. That is the only way of avoiding violence, the only way of maintaining the calm one needs to respond peacefully to offenses. If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.

Humankind will endure when the world appreciates the logic of diversity. The power to question is the basis of all human progress. Life is a continuous process of adjustment. Every new experience brings its own maturity and a greater clarity of vision.

Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If they listen to it and act on it, they are giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to their own goodness and act on it.

Conscience is the root of all true courage; for a person to be brave let them obey their conscience. Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius, and a lot of courage, to move in the opposite direction. Creativity takes courage.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others. It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Courage is the price life exacts for granting peace. The nonviolent approach does not immediately change the heart of the oppressor. It first does something to the hearts and souls of those committed to it. It gives them new self-respect; it calls up resources of strength and courage that they did not know they had. Finally it reaches the opponent and so stirs his conscience that reconciliation becomes a reality.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. Time is neutral and does not change things. With courage and initiative, humans change things. We need the courage to change our values to regenerate love for our families, we need values that support all life which surrounds us. Perfect courage means doing unwitnessed what we would be capable of with the world looking on. One human scorned and covered with scars still strove with their last ounce of courage to reach the unreachable stars; and the world was better for this."

Spectacular Waterfall. One of the most beautiful and peaceful things in nature to be around

Waterfalls Lakes Plitvice, Croatia National Park Is among the 20 most beautiful lakes in the world to 17th place. The park covers an area of 33,000 hectares and includes 16 lakes in succession, connected by waterfalls.Plitvice is the oldest national park in Southeast Europa.All'interno the park there are also many caves of which only a small part is agibile.I lakes are formed by two rivers: the White River and the Black River, which flow in the river Korana. The waters of these rivers are rich in calcareous salts (mostly calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate), from the dissolution of carbonate rocks forming the geological structure of sito.Questi salts are precipitated by vegetation, forming layers of travertine , a sedimentary rock recently. Over time, these deposits forming real natural dams that act as barriers to water, growing by about a centimeter per year. At one point the water pressure breaks these natural levees, opening new paths in the ground.
This mechanism, in fact common to all the calcareous water, in Plitvice has assumed a particular importance.
The beauty of the National Park Plitvice, Croatia, is increased in the second round of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

How can a man know what is good for him,and yet fail to act upon his knowledge?The reason for this,Aristotle said,was "Incontinence- lack of self-control".Where I clearly know what I ought to do to achieve my desirable end, yet I don't do that thing.Isn't that interesting, particularly for an intelligent species like us?

I think I might be sick
This repugnant insult to douchecanoes, whose whole life seems to resolve around posting on social media about how his body is a gift from the gods to mankind and claims to have had an epiphany where he was told by a "soft voice" that his purpose in life was to "bed heavenly blessed beauties"....

Dylan Djohan, 23, on a divine mission to rape women, went on a holiday around the Mediterranean, where he and a couple other guys (Ashwin Kumar, 23, and Waleed Latif, 21) gang raped a woman in Croatia. Apparently he even confessed. And after waiting 7 months for trial, the trio payed what amounts to a $30,000 bribe and were set free, avoiding the 15 year prison sentence they were facing.

Just a couple days after release, boarding his flight back to Australia in an act of obvious contrition, Djohan posted on Instagram about the possibility of joining the "mile-high club" with an airline stewardess.

I just can't even. Of course there's fury over this. I don't even want to think about it. I don't want to reshare his photo. But I hope that everyone sees it and women cross the street to avoid him, men shun him, employers throw his portfolio in the recycling... I hope some Australian court finds a way to lock him away.

How do we, as a society, even get to a point where people think this way?

Fury over payment by Melbourne men to avoid rape trial in Croatia
Three Melbourne men who admitted gang raping a 17-year-old backpacker in Croatia but paid $30,000 to avoid a court trial have sparked fierce debate in the Baltic state about the practice of making financial settlements with victims of sexual assault.
