To Be Like Jesus
Jesus emptied Himself and chose to become like one of us so that we might become like Him sharing in His divine life as the Holy Spirit transforms us. John 17:21-26.

Glowing strongly in the greenish light produced by ionized oxygen atoms, the mysterious voorwerp is below spiral galaxy IC 2497. Both lie at a distance of some 650 million light-years in the faint constellation Leo Minor. In fact, the enormous green cloud is now suspected to be part of a tidal tail of material illuminated by a quasar inhabiting the center of IC 2497. Powered by a massive black hole, the quasar suddenly turned off, leaving only galaxy and glowing voorwerp visible at optical wavelengths. The Hubble image also resolves a star-forming region in the voorwerp, seen in yellow on the side near IC 2497. That region was likely compressed by an outflow of gas driven from the galaxy's core. The remarkable mystery object was discovered by Dutch schoolteacher Hanny van Arkel in 2007 while participating online in the Galaxy Zoo project; it enlists the public to help classify galaxies found in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, and more recently in deep Hubble imagery.
73% of the brain is filled with water. If it gets dehydrated by anything more than 2% of it, the person may suffer a loss in attention, memory and cognitive skills.
The Blackfoot Indians were a nation of American Indians with four distinctive tribes, one in Montana and the other in Alberta, Canada. Fierce buffalo hunters, this nomadic tribe followed their food source. With no experience in pottery, crafts or agriculture, they relied on the land. While natural food sources and small subsidized, the buffalo were their main source of food, clothing, shelter, tools and weapons. Today the surviving heirs still live on much of the Montana land they had long ago.
The flag of Malawi was officially adopted on 6 July 1964 when the colony of Nyasaland became independent from British rule and renamed itself Malawi. The rising sun represents the dawn of hope and freedom for the continent of Africa. The black represents the indigenous people of the continent, the red symbolizes the blood of their struggle, and the green represents nature.
The self-portrait is an 1889 oil on canvas painting by the post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The picture was painted in September that year, shortly before he left Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in southern France. This self-portrait, which may have been his last, was one of about 40 van Gogh produced over a 10-year period. He would paint himself because he often lacked the money to pay for models. He took the painting with him to Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, where he showed it to Dr Paul Gachet, who thought it was "absolutely fanatical." The Musée d'Orsay in Paris obtained the picture in 1986.
