Momentum
Rick Stanfield – i can and i will
The quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity.
Whoa!! That sounds technical and you know what? It is.
I have watched my Atlanta Braves score 6 runs in the first inning, and somehow, I wasn’t
comfortable with that lead. The other team would score 1 run here and another 2 there, and
somehow you could feel the momentum changing. I would sit on my couch screaming at the
top of my lungs. Even when they still had the lead, you knew they were about to blow it.
Sometimes in life the momentum is working to your benefit, and we love it! Other times, it
seems like we’re on a freefall from an airplane with no parachute.
There are not many feelings like having everything fall into place, and it seems like there’s
nothing that can go right when your world falls apart. The answer is to not let either get the
best of you. When everything is going right, we tend to let up, and we don’t fight with that
enthusiasm we had to start that upward momentum. Then when our situation crumbles, we
throw our hands in the air and give up.
Give God the praise for your blessings, and when bad things happen, stop, take a deep breath,
go back to the God-given gifts that brought you the blessings. This will bring an end to the
freefall. We make the mistake of thinking we can deal with the downfall ourselves when we
can’t. If you think that streak of good luck was all you, that’s your first mistake. Just as you

Plans to Squeeze Iran
White House officials are worried that the
apparent killing of the dissident journalist
Jamal Khashoggi, and Saudi Arabia’s changing
account of his fate, could derail a showdown
with Iran and jeopardize plans to enlist Saudi
help to avoid disrupting the oil market.
Officials said the dilemma comes at a fraught
moment for the Trump administration, which is
expected to reimpose harsh sanctions against
Iran on Nov. 5, with the intent of cutting off all
Iranian oil exports.
But to make the strategy work, the administra-
tion is counting on its relationship with the
Saudis to keep global oil flowing without
spiking prices, and to work together on a new
policy to contain Iran in the Persian Gulf.
If that carefully coordinated plan moves
forward, the Saudis would likely see a
significant increase in oil revenue at exactly the
moment Congress is talking about penalizing
the kingdom over the Khashoggi case. It is one
reason that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
was sent, with a few hours’ notice, to see King
Salman of Saudi Arabia and Crown Prince
Mohammed bin Salman on Tuesday. Part of the
problem is optics, officials said: Saudi Arabia
looks like a brutal ally, including by leading a
deadly military campaign in Yemen, just as
President Trump and Mr. Pompeo have been
casting Iran as the region’s bully. “It’s a neat
trick if you can both sanction a country and
partner with them at the same time,” “And it’s
not easy to keep the focus on Iran’s behavior
when the Saudis are doing terrible things to
journalists and dissidents, and bombing
children in Yemen.”After a phone call with
Prince Mohammed on Tuesday, Mr. Trump
said the kingdom’s rulers had again “totally
denied any knowledge” of Mr. Khashoggi’s
fate. He said the crown prince, who was with
Mr. Pompeo during the call, would expand an
investigation into Mr. Khashoggi’s disappear-
ance and suspected killing two weeks ago.
Mr. Khashoggi, a columnist for The
Washington Post, has not been seen since he
entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct.
2. Turkish officials have asserted that Mr.
Khashoggi was murdered and his body
dismembered; Saudi officials denied any
wrongdoing. While Mr. Khashoggi’s disappear-
ance has heightened tensions between Saudi
Arabia and both Turkey and the United States,
the White House has been measuring the
damage to its Iran strategy. Other administra-
tion officials recently have been circulating
through Riyadh, the Saudi capital, seeking the
kingdom’s help on familiar problems, be it
Iraq, Afghanistan or the Islamic State. But it is
the containment of Iran that has captivated the
administration and its Saudi allies.
Norman T. Roule, who oversaw Iran
assessments for decades before he left the
C.I.A. last year, said in an interview from
Riyadh that “the Saudis need to quickly and
transparently deal with this.” Still searching
until we find his body.

FDA Bans Seven Artificial Food Flavorings


The FDA has banned the use of seven synthetic substances used to flavor or enhance
flavor in baked goods, ice cream, candy, beverages, and chewing gum.
Environmental and health advocacy groups sent data to the agency that showed that 6
of the substances cause cancer in lab animals, the FDA says, and the seventh flavor is
being removed from approved additives as it is no longer used by industry.
On a label, the substances are listed as ''artificial flavors," rather than their specific
names, according to the Environmental Defense Fund, one of the organizations that
petitioned to get the flavors outlawed. The substances are typically added to simulate
mint, cinnamon, and citrus.
The 6 are:
Benzophenone
Ethyl acrylate
Eugenyl methyl ether
Myrcene
Pulegone
Pyridine
The FDA also removed its approval for styrene, which has been abandoned by
industry, the agency says.
