you are the sun i am the moon lyrics my favorite songs

Play Me
Neil Diamond
She was moring
And I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying
Beside my bed
I softly said
“Come take me”
For I’ve been lonely
In need of someone
As though I’d done
Someone wrong somewhere
I don’t know where
Come lately
You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the words
I am the tune
Play me
Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night
And what was right
Became me
You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the words
I am the tune
Play me
And so it was
That I came to travel
Upon a road
That was thorned and narrow
Another place
Another grace
Would save me
You are the sun
I am the moon
You are the word
I am the tune
Play me

let it be me lyrics – My favorite songs

Let It Be Me
Elvis Presley
God bless
The day I found you
I want to
Stay around you
And so I beg you
Let it be me
Don’t take
This heaven from one
If you must
Cling to someone
Now and forever
Let it be me
Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Without your sweet love
Tell me, what would life be?
So never
Leave me lonely
Just tell me
You love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me
Each time we meet love
I find complete love
Oh, without your sweet love
Tell me, what would life be?
So never
Leave me lonely
Just tell me
You love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me
And that you’ll always
Let it be me
So never
Leave me lonely
Just tell me
You love me only
And that you’ll always
Let it be me
Songwriters: Gilbert Becaud / Pierre Delance / Manny Kurtz

girl, your will be a woman soon, lyrics – My favorite songs

Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon
Urge Overkill
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
I love you so much, can’t count all the ways
I’ve died for you girl and all they can say is
“He’s not your kind”
They never get tired of putting me down
And I’ll never know when I come around
What I’m gonna find
Don’t let them make up your mind
Don’t you know, girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please, come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon, you’ll need a man
I’ve been misunderstood for all of my life
But what they’re saying girl it cuts like a knife
“The boy’s no good”
Well, I’ve finally found what I’m a-looking for
But if they get their chance they’ll end it for sure
Surely would
Baby, I’ve done all I could
Now it’s up to you girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please, come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon, you’ll need a man
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please, come take my hand
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Soon but soon, you’ll need a man
Girl, you’ll be a woman soon
Please, come take my hand

Analysis of a World Champion’s Speech!

Analysis of the 2015 World Champion’s winning speech: “The Power of Words”
Click here to view speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xksgPjp1lRo

In the interview, Qahtani discussed what others can learn from his speech. Read and see if you can identify what he is discussing by relating the pointers to the viewing.

He immediately gets the audience on his side
Qahtani starts his speech with a sight gag, pretending to consider lighting up a cigarette before the audience’s reaction convinces him not to. He transitions from this into a sober defense of the tobacco industry before saying, straight-faced, that all of the facts and figures he cited were made up. The audience then roars with laughter.
“When you get an audience laughing, you’ve got them on your side. However you choose to engage an audience, by getting them to laugh, cheer, gasp, or any other emotional reaction, it’s important to get them on your side from the beginning.” Qahtani said. He added that it can be easy for a speaker to forget that an audience wants a performer to do well and is waiting to be entertained.

He doesn’t lose sight of his message
The punch-line of his fake defense of Big Tobacco is that you can convince people of a lie, even an absurd one, if you deliver it in the proper way.
Every presentation needs to have a thesis: a message that convinces the audience and will take with them. Qahtani’s message is straightforward: “We must be conscious of the power our words can have over other people, for better or worse.”

His speech is a series of stories:
why a pseudo-defense of smoking can be convincing
how he taught his young son a lesson
why academics have a difficult time imparting the dangers of global warming
how a single phone call ruined a friend’s life.                                                 .
These stories are variations on a theme, leading to a satisfying conclusion that ties them all together

He makes it personal
A friend once told Qahtani, “When you’re on the stage, the most important thing is the audience. Don’t care about how you look; where you are on the stage; how you sound — just care about the audience.” Qahtani has used this advice to stay focused on how his audience reacts, and rather than going through the motions, he adjusts his delivery depending on how his audience engages with his material.
In “The Power of Words,” he cheats a little bit with the story about a friend dying from an overdose. The story, about a promising young man’s tragic path to self-destruction partially due to an estranged relationship with his father, is real, but it’s a story Qahtani borrowed. He said that if he presented it as a secondhand story it would lose some of its immediacy.
“If you’re giving a corporate presentation or TED Talk, you shouldn’t play with poetic license, but you definitely should use anecdotes that add life to your topic.”

He uses his strengths to overcome his weaknesses
Qahtani grew up with a stutter and deals with it occasionally. He says that even though the stage empowers him and rids him of the impediment, he accepts the fact that his vocal delivery will never be his strong point, and neither will his stage presence.
A fellow Toastmaster once told him: “Some people are strong with their words. Some people are strong with their voice. Some people are strong with their stage presence. Your strength is humor. Use it.”
There were competitors who had better delivery and more refined movements on stage, but Qahtani got the audience to focus their attention on what he did well.

He ends on a hopeful note
Qahtani opened his speech with humor to get the audience laughing and relaxed, but he would have fallen into a stand-up act if he didn’t transition into moving personal anecdotes. Similarly, if he kept his entire speech heavy, his audience would have felt depressed or even bored rather than satisfied.
However you determine your speech will flow, Qahtani said: “It’s important that you always leave your audience with a feeling of hope. They need to feel empowered by what you just told them.”

Daily Capsule | 19th Jan


Shoot for the moon and if you miss, you may hit a star. Well, not exactly stars and moons, but space enthusiasts can definitely enjoy an immersive experience of the outer space at the ‘Beyond Planet Earth’ exhibition.

Underway at the Gujarat Science Society, the exhibition – courtesy the American Museum of Natural History – has been set up as part of the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2019. A first-of-its-kind in India, the exhibition promises numerous attractions including life-size models of the Curiosity and Pathfinder rovers, a model of Sputnik, the world’s first artificial satellite, and the ‘Vostok’ capsule from the Soviet era.

And guess what? It’s open for visitors for the next four months, which means there is ample time to plan a trip.

Now, let’s come together to fill out our survey on the angel tax issue. Tell us your concerns. Share your suggestions. Together, we can amplify your concerns.

Let’s act, not react.

Being one of the first to spot the potential in the digital payments space back in 2009 wasn’t enough to guarantee Gurugram-based startup MobiKwik a winning spot in the race. In addition, the company also failed to secure big funding rounds like its competitor, Paytm. So now, MobiKwik is aiming to reinvent itself as a quasi-bank. In doing so, an IPO and breaking even operationally are on top of its founders’ priority list.

Consumer lending platform ZestMoney raised an undisclosed investment from venture debt fund Alteria Capital. In August last year, the firm had raised $13.4 million in a Series A2 round of funding, led by smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi. ZestMoney is a technology company that facilitates real-time credit decisions based on alternative data sources enabling lenders to reach a wider market in a technology-driven and efficient manner.

The popularity of bike-hailing apps, like Rapido, increased in early 2017 after the central government requested all state governments to legalise bike-taxis in the country. Three years since its inception, Rapido has recorded two million app downloads on iOS and Android and is operational across 16 cities in India. The bike-taxi service is a boon especially for daily commuters, thanks to its low-cost options and special features like an in-app SOS button, that ensures the safety and security of the users.

Digital lending startup LoanTap raised $8 million, in a combination of equity and debt, led by Bengaluru-based Venture Capital Fund 3one4 Capital. Existing investors Shunwei Capital, Kae Capital, India Quotient, Tuscan Venture and angel investor Ashish Goenka of Suashish Diamonds also participated in the round. The fresh funding will be used to leverage more, as the platform plans to raise Rs 90 crore of debt to create a bigger loan book.

App Annie’s State of Mobile 2019 report is out. And according to it, India continues to be among the fastest-growing mobile app markets in the world. The report also predicts that an average Indian user has about 68 apps on their smartphones, of which 35 are used on a monthly basis. Wondering which ones were the most downloaded? In 2018, apps like Facebook, Messenger, UC Browser, WhatsApp, SHAREit, TikTok, Hotstar, Truecaller, and MX player ruled the roost.

Future of Work 2019, scheduled for February 9, 2019, is a one-of-a-kind gathering of technologists, leaders, entrepreneurs and hiring managers to find some real answers on technology and talent. Click here for early bird discounts and more details!

Seek only God

‘Seek and you shall find’ has become such a commonplace that spiritual aspirants have begun to wonder what it means.

To them I say, Do not seek and you will find.
Do not seek material pleasure and you will find the spiritual treasure.

This means, seek only God by not seeking material pleasures, and you will find God.
