Everyone experiences adversity and stress at some level, whether it’s the pressure to perform in school or work, relationship problems, financial difficulties, or simply the number of tasks to do in a short period of time. All stress isn’t bad, but chronic stress can take its toll on our minds, bodies, and behavior. Research has shown that people can learn and use specific resilience skills (such as optimistic thinking, relaxation strategies, choosing one’s attention) and positive routines (good sleep, scheduling in fun, and so on) in order to better manage stress, bounce back quicker after a setback, be more effective in their academic and vocational pursuits, develop stronger relationships with others, be physically and mentally healthy, and be satisfied with their lives overall. In short, resilience is ordinary magic and can be learned. It does not necessarily mean that you have to be born resilient or get lucky in life.

The purpose of this course is to teach individuals the science behind becoming a resilient person. Stated simply, resilience is the ability to survive and thrive. Resiliency is not only about your ability to positively adapt in the face of adverse or challenging circumstances (that is, survive), but it is also about learning the positive skills, strategies and routines that enable you to live a happy, fulfilling, and meaningful life (in other words, thrive). This course gives you the permission to take care of yourself in order to effectively manage life stressors and do what matters most in life.

By the end of this course, you will have learned about the knowledge and skills that you can apply in your life now and in the future to be a resilient person.

The goal for this course is to give you permission to take care of yourself and empower you to be a resilient person. A resilient person is someone who:

that Mr. Trump might select. On that list, five names stand out as the front-runners.

Here they are in alphabetical order.

FILE: Amy Coney Barrett

screen grab via C-SPAN

A graduate of Notre Dame Law School – where she later became a professor – Barrett was nominated to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by Mr. Trump last year. The Senate then confirmed her to the bench in a 55-to-43 vote. Democratic Sens. Joe Donnelly, Joe Manchin, and Tim Kaine all voted for her confirmation, as did every Republican senator.

Barrett is a favorite of conservatives who want a right-leaning woman on the Supreme Court, since all the current woman justices are liberals. The youngest of all the top contenders -- 46 years old -- she could conceivably serve on the Supreme Court for perhaps four decades if she is nominated and confirmed. But Barrett's short tenure as a judge could work against her if Mr. Trump decided he wants a more experienced jurist.

Hardiman is a judge on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Originally from Waltham, Mass., Hardiman attended Notre Dame and Georgetown Law School. He worked in private practice in Pittsburgh, then was a hearing office for the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

Hardiman, a circuit judge on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, nearly became Mr. Trump's pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia in 2017. Mr. Trump ended up picking Neil Gorsuch , but Hardiman was the runner-up.

Hardiman has been on the Court of Appeals since 2007 and was confirmed by a 95-to-0 vote by the Senate. A graduate of Georgetown Law, he worked as a taxi driver in Massachusetts as a teenager, and is seen as an experienced and reliably conservative jurist.

A favorite of some powerful voices within the White House, Kavanaugh is conservative, relatively young, and experienced, having served on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals since 2006. Before that, he worked for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr in the 1990s and helped author the Starr Report, which is famous for cataloguing President Clinton's sexual impropriety. He then worked for George W. Bush's legal team during the 2000 Florida recount.

The Yale-educated Kavanaugh was confirmed to his current position in a contentious 57-to-36 Senate vote after Democrats stalled his nomination for several years. But Kavanaugh's right-leaning politics could imperil his chances at confirmation if moderates decide he's too ideological to replace Kennedy.

CBS News chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford believes Kavanaugh is one of the top three contenders to replace Kennedy.

Kethledge is a judge on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and was confirmed in 2008 after being nominated by President George W. Bush. He worked in private practice for a decade before being appointed to the court, and once clerked for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Kethledge clerked for Justice Kennedy after graduating the University of Michigan's Law School. He has served on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals since 2008, although his nomination was initially blocked by Michigan's two Democratic senators at the time, Debbie Stabinow and Carl Levin. A conservative favorite, he is also the author of the book "Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude."

Trump’s admin stands with NU in its fight for religious freedom against jihad.”

Last Sunday, a family of six—including four children—believed to be affiliated with the terrorist group Jamaah Ansharut Daulah (JAD) set off explosives at three churches in Surabaya, the second-largest city in Indonesia.

As the holiday of Ramadan began, Staquf sat down with Pence and senior advisers in the West Wing to discuss the attack, which has heightened Angara Dangling Round Pink Sapphire and Diamond Halo Pendant in 14K Rose Gold UCtKGguE
from Christians and Muslims alike over radicalization and sectarian violence.

His organization—a Sunni group with as many as 50 million members—has been championed as a model of “moderate Islam” due to its vocal stance against extremism and its efforts to build healthier relationships across faiths. In 2016, CT reported how NU called for majority-Muslim countries to do more to protect freedoms for Christians and other faiths.

One of the victims of Sunday’s attacks was a Christian trained by NU as a church guard; he died blocking a suicide bomber on a motorcycle.

“The VP conveyed deeply personal condolences on behalf of the United States for the events of last weekend, reiterated the administration’s commitment to helping Indonesia and the NU in its efforts to combat extremism, and offered Ramadan greetings to the NU community,” said Johnnie Moore, an evangelical adviser to the Trump administration who also attended.

Thursday’s meeting builds on Pence’s trip to Indonesia last year, when he met Staquf for the first time and praised the nation’s religious tolerance, saying: “As the largest majority Muslim country, Indonesia’s tradition of modern Islam, frankly, is the inspiration to the world.”

Yet the fringe of radical Muslims in Indonesia is gaining clout, raising the risk of violent attacks and increasing Christian persecution in the political sphere. Last year, religious freedom groups began to question the country’s reputation as a religiously tolerant democracy once its top Christian politician, the governor of the capital city of Jakarta, faced protests from hardline Islamists and ended up convicted of blasphemy .

The surprising verdict came as four senior Indonesian political leaders—three Muslims, one Christian—were finishing a US tour seeking partners to promote and preserve the archipelago’s pluralism.

“With the news of Ahok’s sentencing to two years in prison, a pall fell over our gathering,” wrote Paul Marshall, a professor of religious freedom at Baylor University and a scholar with the Leimena Institute, a Christian think tank in Jakarta. “Our very well-informed companions believed this victory for radicalism might be a prelude to the demise of democracy in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority country.” (Though he explained for CT why he Angara Freshwater Cultured Pearl Drop Pendant with Ornate Bale 7zjMM
