Fuel supply ban due to fund issues not ops performance Air India

first_imgMumbai: The ban on jet fuel supply to Air India at six airports by the oil marketing firms was on account of fund crunch and not due to carrier’s operational performance, airline chief Ashwani Lohani has said. Lohani in a Facebook post on Sunday also wrote that regardless of the situation the Maharaja must keep afloat. The oil marketing companies led by Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) last week stopped supplying fuel to Air India’s aircraft at Kochi, Pune, Patna, Ranchi, Vizag and Mohali airports over payment defaults, amid their combined dues mounting to a whopping around Rs 5,000 crore.

The joint decision to stop fuel supply to Air India from six airports was taken by the oil marketing companies in the wake of long-overdue payments to the tune of Rs 5,000 crore, IOC said in a statement issued on behalf of the three firms.last_img read more

Ban and Libyan official discuss transition agree on urgent visit by UN

7 July 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the Prime Minister of Libya today discussed the need to end the fighting and ensure a transition that brings peace to the country, and agreed that the United Nations Special Envoy should hold urgent consultations in Tripoli. Hundreds of people are confirmed to have been killed – and hundreds of thousands displaced –since opposition forces rose up against the regime of Mr. Qadhafi in February as part of a wider pro-democracy movement across North Africa and the Middle East. During their telephone conversation, Mr. Ban and Prime Minister Al Baghdadi Ali Al-Mahmoudi discussed the urgent need to find a way out of the current fighting and alleviate the dire humanitarian situation, and work out a transition that could bring peace to all Libyans, according to a readout provided by the Secretary-General’s spokesperson. To that end, Mr. Ban said it was important that his Special Envoy for Libya, Abdul Ilah al-Khatib, receive the full support of all concerned.“The Libyan Prime Minister agreed to the suggestion of the Secretary-General that Mr. al-Khatib be received in Tripoli at an early date for urgent consultations,” the readout said.In Geneva where Mr. Ban attended a meeting of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), he told reporters: “We are far from reaching an agreement to end the conflict, but a negotiation process is under way.”His Special Envoy is playing a crucial coordinating role and will be intensifying his efforts, he added. Mr. Ban also emphasized the importance of international unity in dealing with the situation in Libya. “It is imperative that all efforts to end the conflict be closely coordinated,” he said. “The United Nations will be critical in managing not only the realization of a ceasefire and eventual peace, but also its aftermath, the construction of a free and democratic Libya,” he stated. “We have already started the early planning for the post-conflict phase, for the peace-building and peace-making phase.” Earlier this month a UN inter-agency mission, comprising specialists from the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN refugee agency (UNHCR), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the UN World Food Programme (WFP), assessed conditions on the ground in several parts of Libya. read more

World airline passenger traffic set to rebound in 2004 UN aviation agency

In 2001, domestic and international scheduled passenger traffic, measured in terms of passenger-kilometres performed (PKPs), fell by 2.9 per cent as a result of a slowing world economy and the 11 September terrorist attacks against the United States, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) noted.These effects continued into last year and were intensified by the build up to war in Iraq; traffic last year grew only marginally, by 0.4 per cent. Traffic fell in the first part of this year because of the war and particularly the impact of concerns regarding Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). Recovery is now under way and traffic for 2003 is expected to be about the same as last year.The ICAO forecasts assume gradual restoration of passenger confidence in international travel, improved application and facilitation of aviation security measures, an improving world economy and a stable operating environment. In the longer term, global scheduled passenger traffic growth can be expected to proceed at an average annual rate of around 4 per cent, slightly lower than pre-2001 trend projections and with about a three year time lag.Traffic development will vary by geographical region because of the impact of local, intra- and inter-regional factors. Traffic development of both North American and European carriers is stabilizing, with an expected “zero growth” in 2003 before recovery gets fully under way in 2004 and 2005. North American carriers were hardest hit by the shrinking demand following 11 September 2001, and their passenger traffic is expected to recover to year 2000 levels only by 2004.Scheduled passenger traffic of airlines based in Asia/Pacific, which were generally hardest hit by the effects SARS had on travel, is expected to decline by 0.8 per cent in 2003 but to recover at the rates of 4.9 per cent and 6.8 per cent for the years 2004 and 2005. Carriers of Africa, the Middle East and Latin America and the Caribbean are forecast to achieve moderate passenger traffic growth in 2003, with increased growth from 2004 onwards. read more

Walkoff hit seals Ohio State baseballs pair of midweek wins over instate

OSU junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson (4) and redshirt junior right fielder Jacob Bosiokovic (17) celebrate at the plate during a 9-8 win over Toledo on March 30 at Bill Davis Stadium.Credit: Edward Sutelan | For The LanternWhen there is thunder atop the Ohio State lineup, anything can happen. Once again, the Buckeyes proved that that was the case.With the help of home runs by redshirt junior right fielder Jacob Bosiokovic and clutch hitting from junior center fielder Troy Montgomery, the OSU baseball team was able to win both of its midweek games against in-state opponents.Ohio UniversityFor the second game in what is now a three-game streak, Bosiokovic hit a two-run home run to provide the Buckeye offense with a spark, as the Buckeyes topped Ohio University in Athens on Tuesday.The Buckeyes got on the board early when senior first baseman Troy Kuhn reached base on a fielding error and scored Montgomery from third in the first inning. Junior Jalen Washington would follow up Kuhn’s RBI with a sacrifice fly to score Bosiokovic. In the second inning, Bosiokovic hit his home run, scoring himself and senior shortstop Craig Nennig, who reached base on a single.These runs would be more than enough for freshman starting pitcher Ryan Feltner, who earned his first collegiate win. The right-hander threw 5.2 innings of one-run ball with one walk, one strikeout and five hits as he stymied the bats of the Bobcats.Ohio would get on the board in the sixth inning when its right fielder, Tony Gianni, hit a sacrifice fly to score left fielder Mitch Longo from third. Later, center fielder Manny De Jesus scored on a wild, swinging strike three from OSU senior left-handed reliever Daulton Mosbarger. Longo would score later in the inning on a fielding error by Washington, who made his first start of the year at second base after being the everyday catcher.The ninth inning saw the Buckeyes add a pair of insurance runs as Washington was driven in on a double by freshman designated hitter Brady Cherry, who would later score on senior Ryan Leffel’s pinch-hit sacrifice fly.In his return from a day-to-day injury, redshirt sophomore closer Yianni Pavlopoulos slammed the door on Ohio, as the right-hander came in and punched out all three batters he faced to earn his sixth save on the season and finish off the 6-3 Buckeye victory.University of ToledoToledo jumped out to a very early 4-0 lead Wednesday on the strength of a five-hit barrage off OSU sophomore starter Austin Woodby, but the Buckeyes battled back to make it a one-run contest thanks to a two-run double off the red-hot bat of senior third baseman Nick Sergakis. He would later score off a sacrifice fly from Washington.But this game was far from over.The Buckeyes trailed until the fifth inning when Bosiokovic hit a towering home run to left-center field to tie the game. After junior left fielder Ronnie Dawson was picked off at first, Sergakis hit a home run of his own, one that bounced off the top of the left field wall and over. Even after a late insurance run in the eighth inning, the Buckeyes’ lead was not safe.Pavlopoulos entered the game with a two-run lead but surrendered three runs off three hits to give the Rockets the advantage. The Buckeyes responded fast, though, as Kuhn doubled to start the inning and advanced to third on a bunt from Washington. Following walks to Cherry (who was lifted for pinch runner Jake Brobst) and pinch hitter Zach Ratcliff, Nennig popped the ball up to second base.With two down in the bottom of the ninth and the Buckeyes’ backs up against the wall, Montgomery hit a booming double over the center fielder’s head to score Kuhn and Brobst and give the Buckeyes their eighth comeback win of the season already.“3-1 (count), bases loaded, game-tying run on first base, I think he’s going to throw me a fastball,” Montgomery said about the at-bat. “I don’t think he wants to walk me with the curveball … so I wasn’t looking for that curveball right there, and he threw me a fastball over the plate and I just barreled it up.”Not lost on OSU coach Greg Beals was the outstanding relief effort from junior left-handed pitcher Joe Stoll, who entered the game and provided the Buckeyes with four innings of shutout baseball, surrendering only one hit and one walk while striking out three.“Joey Stoll came in and calmed the waters for us and gave our ball club a chance to get back in the game,” Beals said.Stoll, who had made only five appearances prior to this game and thrown just five innings overall, was called on in the third inning after Austin Woodby — making his first collegiate start — struggled early.“I try really hard to be ready from the first pitch,” Stoll said. “Going in there too early wasn’t really a big deal … I’m really just trying to help the team out. Any way the coaching staff thinks I can help or anything I can do, I just want to help my teammates win.”The last couple of games have not been easy on the Buckeyes, as they have struggled to get out of the gate early, having scored first only once in the past eight games. But as evidenced by the 7-1 record in that time span, late comebacks have become seemingly part of the plan for the Scarlet and Gray. Beals mentioned how this team has a mentality where it believes it is always in the game.“We talk about 27 outs, 27 on both sides of the ball, so let’s be as tough as we can for all 27 outs,” Beals said. “We talk about the whole game and we talk about the mental toughness of playing and responding to the good and the bad.”The Buckeyes are next scheduled begin a series against Bethune-Cookman on Friday, with the first pitch set to be thrown at 6:35 p.m. at Bill Davis Stadium. The three games are scheduled to see the usual rotation of Tanner Tully on Friday, Adam Niemeyer on Saturday and John Havird on Sunday. read more

10 stickers can form inexpensive wireless sensor network

first_imgJapan’s NMEMS technology research association has revealed an amazing new sensor module. It’s just 1mm thick and measures 2cm by 5cm, but that’s more than enough space to cram in a wide array of monitoring abilities, power generation, and wireless communication capabilities.These “stickers” will be capable of keeping tabs on a wide variety of environmental conditions, from dust, CO2, and VOC levels to ambient temperature and the strength of nearby electromagnetic fields. Situated on the bottom layer is a tiny solar setup that will generate and store the necessary power.It doesn’t need much, either. NMEMES TRA says the sensors will require about 150μW. Currently the photoelectric layer can produce about 80% of that, so there’s some tweaking to do before the first prototypes can be delivered in 2014.Once the necessary juice can be supplied, the sensors will be able to communicate wirelessly over a distance of about 100 meters. That works out to an area of about 31,000 square meters — impressively wide coverage when you consider that no outside power needs to be supplied.These autonomous little stickers should be perfect for monitoring all kinds of indoor environments, like schools, malls, office buildings, factories, and hospitals.They should make life a little easier for your local health authority, too, since data can be gathered wirelessly from more than a football field away. That’s a heck of a lot more convenient than distributing old fashioned detection devices and then gathering them all up later to analyze data.With a sticker price of around $10, it won’t take long for these sensors to find their way into buildings all over the globe.last_img read more

19 New Gecko Species Uncovered in Tiny Section of Myanmar

first_img Scientists have found a whopping 15 new gecko species in Myanmar’s karst landscapes.Well, 19 if you count the four that biologist L. Lee Grismer is still detailing.Uncovered during a two-week excursion to Southeast Asia in October 2016, the whole set was found in a measly 55-by-30-mile section of isolated limestone, previously cut off due to civil conflict.“That’s the really amazing thing about it—they all come from such a small area,” Grismer told New Scientist this week.The Hemiphyllodactylus montawaensis gecko (via L. Lee Grismer)Though common among invertebrates like snails or insects, it’s basically unheard of for backboned animals to live in that close proximity. In this case, it seems the sticky-footed lizards were likely hiding from predators on surrounding plains.“It’s like you’re the only one who occupies a 7-Eleven,” Grismer explained to the magazine. “It may not be a Wal-Mart, but it’s all yours.”With support from charity Fauna & Flora International, the discovery was led by La Sierra University professor Grismer, the senior author of three upcoming papers.A new Cyrtodactylus gecko (via L. Lee Grismer)He was joined by karst conservationists from Fauna & Flora’s Myanmar team, scientists from the Universiti Sains Malaysia and Brigham Young University, and researchers from the Myanmar Forest Department.Read more about the team’s findings in a trio of journal articles: First up, the Journal of Natural History, which describes three new dwarf geckos; the second paper, published today in the Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society, covers 12 bent-toed lizards.A third, based on discovered in May 2017, is currently being written, and details four more species of bent-toed geckos.A new Cyrtodactylus gecko (via L. Lee Grismer)One of the adorable critters, Hemiphyllodactylus tonywhitteni, is named after FFI senior adviser Tony Whitten—a far cry from the famous titles given to 15 new species of “smiley-faced” spiders.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Passenger demand slowed in August IATA

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> GENEVA — Airline passenger demand took a dip in August. According to IATA’s latest figures, demand climbed 4.6% compared to the year-ago period, a decrease from the 6.4% increase recorded in July. August capacity increased by 5.8%, and load factor slipped 0.9 percentage points to 83.8%.“Growth in passenger demand dipped to 4.6%. While that’s disappointing compared to the previous month’s performance, it is still healthy growth. And although terrorist attacks in Europe have dampened demand, the impact is ebbing,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.August international passenger demand rose 4.7% compared to August 2015. All regions recorded increases, but growth was dominated by airlines in the Middle East. Capacity climbed 6.5%, causing load factor to slide 1.4 percentage points to 83.9%.European carriers saw August demand climb 3.3% year-on-year. European traffic continues to be affected by the impact of terrorism, however, there are indications this may be easing. Capacity rose 5.1%, which caused load factor to drop 1.6 percentage points to 86.6%, still the highest among the regions.More news:  Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaNorth American airlines’ international demand rose 1.8% compared to August a year ago.“Lower airfares are a major factor sustaining demand for air travel,” said de Juniac. “And airline profitability is stronger than ever as a result of a better industry structure and efficiency gains. But the lingering impact of terrorist attacks in Europe earlier in the year reminds us that the aviation industry is vulnerable to many external factors beyond its control. The risks – including the normal ups and downs of the business cycle –won’t go away. The industry has improved resilience along with its profitability. That will be critical to responding quickly should the business environment change.” Thursday, October 6, 2016 Travelweek Group Sharecenter_img Tags: IATA Posted by Passenger demand slowed in August: IATAlast_img read more

Survey Puts Spotlight on Needs of Millenial Homebuyers

first_img With more and more of the Millenial generation entering the housing market each day, the “”National Association of Realtors””:http://www.realtor.org/ (NAR) took a look at their browsing and purchasing habits to determine how their presence will affect the industry.[IMAGE]According to NAR’s report, Millenials (those born between 1980 and 2000) make up the second largest group of recent buyers at 28 percent; Generation X (those born between 1965 and 1979) took the largest share at 31 percent. The median age of recent Millenial homebuyers was 28, their median income was $66,200, and their median down payment was 5 percent–which was most often financed through their personal savings as opposed to the proceeds obtained from the sale of a former residence.””Homeownership is an investment in your future, and is how many younger American families begin to accumulate wealth,”” said Paul Bishop, VP of research for the association. “”The oldest of the Millenial generation are now entering the years in which people typically buy a first home, and despite the recent downturn, homeownership still matters to them.””Bishop added that the sheer size of the Millenial generation–the second largest in history after the Baby Boomers–should give a “”powerful boost to long-run housing demand, though in the short-term mortgage accessibility and student debt repayment remain challenges.””While the vast majority of recent buyers (an estimated 80 percent) considered their home purchase a “”good financial investment,”” young buyers were even more likely to think so (85 percent).In terms of what they’re looking for, younger buyers had a tendency to stay closer to their previous residence–often staying within 10 miles–and were more likely to buy a home in an urban or central city area than older buyers. They also placed higher importance on commuting costs than older generations, who focused more on energy efficiency and living in an environmentally friendly community.The report also showed the Internet is an important tool for homebuyers and industry professionals alike: 90 percent of Millenials frequently used the Internet to search for homes, and they were also more likely to find they home they eventually purchased on the Web.””An interesting finding is that Older Boomers and Silent Generation [born between 1925 and 1945] buyers found the mortgage application and approval process more difficult than expected compared to younger buyers,”” Bishop noted. “”This underscores the ongoing challenges that many credit worthy home buyers face with today’s tight credit standards.””On the seller side, the largest group was Generation X, comprising 30 percent of recent sales, followed by Younger and Older Boomers (a combined 42 percent), and the Silent Generation (19 percent). Typically, older sellers had been in their homes longer, while Millenial sellers had occupied their homes for a median of only five years (most often relocating due to job changes or needing a larger home).

Medical profession being scrutinised to root out tax cheats

first_imgTax commissioner, Yiannis Tsangaris, on Friday said his department has made numerous tax audits on doctors and there have been many cases where large amounts in additional tax have been enforced.Following a debate on the income of private doctors after disagreements between the medical association and the government concerning the former’s pay demands for their participation in the National Health Scheme (Gesy), the state tax authorities said they have already launched a campaign to fish out tax dodgers.The probe follows also a call by President Nicos Anastasiades recently for doctors to submit their tax returns for the past seven years.Tsangaris told state broadcaster CyBC television on Friday that there are 2,300 doctors registered in the state tax records.“The first thing to check, is where there is a tax record, if they submit their tax returns,” Tsangaris told CyBC.  This step has been already done, he said, while, in cooperation with the medical association “we have found which doctors have no tax records”. Of those, he said, they checked to see who was justified in not having a tax record.“Then we saw who from those do not regularly submit their tax returns. We have sent them letters and those who did not respond are being taken in court,” Tsangaris saidHe added that, as in every professional group, not all doctors are at the same level as regards income.“We are a very small place, we know which doctors are believed to have very high incomes due to their popularity,” he said.Tsangaris said that they choose who to check “based on some risk analysis, or based on some parameters we set, and information we receive from third parties and we start the tax audit.”He said they have checked a great number of doctors and have issued very large amounts in additional taxes. There have been cases where doctors were didn’t issue invoices, he said.If a doctor is found not keeping tax records as per the law, he said, the tax commissioner has the right to do a detailed audit on his or her estimated income according to the latter’s judgement.Tsangaris also said his office is in consultations with the audit service to coordinate actions.Anastasiades last month called on doctors to submit, along with their pay demands, their tax returns for the last seven years, making an indirect reference to tax dodging. He was referring to the pay demands of private doctors as regards Gesy. Private doctors fear the financial package they are being offered to participate in Gesy is not enough of an incentive.“They [tax returns] should be submitted and whatever they [doctors] declare or have declared [as their income], should be given to them accordingly as their pay,” Anastasiades said during the interview, alluding to the possibility that many doctors understate their income on their tax returns.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?

undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States "Its impossible" Rodriguez says "Youd have to have a Gestapo sort of apparatus in the vein of World War II putting people not on trains but airplanes” But in the meeting Bramnick said Trump suggested a clear willingness to work with the Hispanic community While Trump did not say he would revisit any of his policies he signaled an openness to continue the conversation Bramnick said "We didnt get into specifics other than that he wants to work with us work with the Hispanic community Hispanic leadership on substantive policy regarding immigration" said Bramnick who leads the Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition a subsidiary of the NHCLC and New Wine Ministries a 300-member congregation in Fort Lauderdale Televangelist Frank Amedia pastor of Touch Heaven Ministries and the Trump campaigns new "liason for Christian policy" arranged the meeting Bramnick says which lasted for about a half hour and then included time with Trumps son Eric During the discussion Bramnick said he shared NHCLCs immigration reform platform with Trump Unlike Trumps immigration proposalwhich calls for building a wall along the US-Mexico border and deporting millionsNHCLCs plan has five pillars One secure the borders through a federal certification process that does not specify a new wall Two provide current law-abiding undocumented immigrants to pursue a path to citizenship which would only be completed after all other current legal immigration applications have been processed Three grant guest worker visas for currently undocumented immigrants Four deport undocumented immigrants who are felons and serious misdemeanor offenders Five create an integration process for newly legalized undocumented individuals to assimilate into American society including learning English and American civics The group opposes Trump’s call to forcibly deport all undocumented immigrants now living in the country Since locking up the nomination Trump has continued to speak about his plans to build a wall on the southern border and force Mexico to pay for it in part by threatening to block private money transfers from the US to Mexico In his stump speeches he casts undocumented immigrants as criminal outlaws who threaten not just the American people but the legal frameworks of the country “Mr Trump has always been very clear on his position” said Hope Hicks a spokeswoman for the Trump campaign when asked if the meeting signaled any policy shift But the meeting fits into a larger Trump strategy of reaching out to recent

conference for some 1200 attendees and includes Christian music performances and sessions on business education ministry and Israel The candidate videos will be shown Friday night These steps are only the beginning if Trump really wants to try to make amends Rodriguez the president of NHCLC hopes Trump will apologize to the Latino immigrant community for his "hurtful erroneous and dangerous statements" and he wants to know what Trumps actual immigration solution is beyond all his talk of a building a border wall and deporting millions “Latino evangelicals are more divided than white evangelicals on Trump" he warned An internal NHCLC poll of 120 Latino evangelical pastors and denominational heads taken in late Marchwhen Texas Sen Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov John Kasich were still runningshows Trump’s challenge Two thirds found more hope in the Republican party than the Democratic party and nearly as many voted for Mitt Romney in the 2012 election But at the time only 4% said theyd vote for Trump while nearly half said they would vote for Cruz and a quarter chose Kasich Clinton got about 15% of the vote The poll found that the top issue for these Latino evangelical leaders was the economy followed closely by immigration reform A third of participants also said they see themselves as independents most say their views reflect the Latino community more broadly and nearly all said they are eligible to vote in the election Bramnick says he plans to make an endorsement in the weeks ahead Rodriguez who had advised Rubio Bush and Cruz says he will not endorse a candidate from either party but his ultimate goal is to help protect the 11 million undocumented people in this country "I want to pass immigration reform" Rodriguez told TIME last month "I have to work with the political realities that we have" Additional reporting by Zeke J Miller Contact us at editors@timecomIDEAS xoJanecom is where women go to be their unabashed selves and where their unabashed selves are applauded When I was 22 I met my husband Pete I was immediately drawn to his quick wit his passion for life and his ability to do anything he set his mind to He seemed invincible In the years that followedwe would share many memorable experiences We spent our time together hiking and backpacking exploring foreign lands and daydreaming about the future In the midst of it all we exchanged wedding vows and welcomed two precious babies to the mix while vowing to never allow the expanding size of our family to interfere with our plans to seek adventure Along the way we developed a grandiose vision for our lives both independently and collectively and lived a life free of fear We believed that as long as we had each other all would be right with the world That is until one fateful day in December 2011 Pete had been feeling unwell for some time but naively believed it wasnt anything serious After all he was invincible While I was visiting family out of state with my mother and our children I received the call that changed my life forever Pete had been diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer He was 31 years old There is absolutely no way to give voice to exactly how I felt in that moment The easiest way to describe it would be to say the world stood still While everything around me continued to buzz with life my own had begun crumbling before me We started out strong and brave I was convinced God would save him and was unwilling to accept any other way But as the weeks and months progressed we realized claiming victory wasnt as easy as giving God an ultimatum With each chemo session each new set of scan results and each dose of pain medication we realized we were losing the battle On March 18 2013 the unthinkable happened when my husband closed the chapter on his earthly life leaving me a widow at 28 years old with two young children Leading up to his passing he had received hospice care in our home for five excruciating months during which I witnessed cancer strip him of every last human ability he possessed During that time I was forced to face the facts he was never invincible and neither was I Unfortunately the same is true for every one of us life is fleeting There is a distinct feeling of surrender laced with anger and sadness which envelops a person when they realize their life is out of their control It is a feeling I now know too well one that has continued to befriend me even still Fortunately when I have been unable to carry myself due to the weight of the burden of loss family and friends have come alongside me to bolster me up Before loss I didnt fully understand the necessity that is human relationship but now I know I would never have survived without it In the wake of my loss I felt bereft For years I felt I had a purpose that was bigger than my own vision for my life I was my husbands wife his lover his friend and in the final months of his life his caretaker During his battle with cancer each day had been lived with a newfound urgency When he was no longer present I struggled to identify my purpose and questioned every reality I had ever known I wondered who I was without him by my side Steeped in the pain of my loss each day felt weighted with the emotions of the day before and as they piled on top of one another the muck and mire of such intense feeling seemed too much to navigate on my own There were days I cried incessantly While other days I felt an overwhelming desire to tell everyone about what had happened to me to us I felt as though the word "widow" was etched into my forehead On those days I told my story so stoically oftentimes to absolute strangers that it made me wonder if they questioned its authenticity Even still there were days I escaped in an effort to connect with him I longed to revisit the places we enjoyed together While in those familiar places I felt at peace knowing I could cry uninhibited without feeling pressured to conform to societys made up grief timeline Slowly but surely I began making a concerted effort to confront my grief and loss and eventually it became more natural to move forward Still there is not a day that goes by that I do not look at my children and wonder "Why them why me" While the pain of loss remains so raw at this point there is no other way than to accept that it will always be this way There is absolutely no explanation and no justification for what has happened it simply is what it is Fortunately acceptance does not mean apathy Acceptance simply means my energies are better spent elsewhere I am proud to say that where I am now is a place of identifying the lessons learned through my trials recognizing the beauty in the day-to-day and expressing gratitude for the time I did have with my husband Through my loss I have become a stronger more impassioned woman who is slowly coming into myself recognizing my own needs and pursuing my own future As for our children they will continue to work through the loss of their father as will I but they will take their cues from me I must continually remind myself that they will mimic the way I grieve The last thing Pete would have wanted is for us to stop living which is why I have made a genuine effort to put one foot in front of the other no matter how intense the pain may be Because our youngest son was only 2 years old when Pete passed away I feel it is especially critical to speak of the sacred memories we shared while their daddy was with us in the flesh However I feel confident he is with us in spirit so I guess in that way he was invincible its just not the way I ever would have imagined Alysha StGermain wrote this article for xoJane Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news
