(WHDH) — Firefighters responded Friday morning to a gym in Worms, Germany, after officials say a lifter got a “very sensitive” body part stuck inside a weight that’s typically placed on a barbell.The Feuerwehr Worms Fire Department posted photos of broken five-pound weight on their Facebook page and said crews were forced to use a vibrations saw and a hydraulic emergency kit to remove the weight from the man’s body part.Officials say crews worked for three-hours before they were able to remove the weight.The fire department shared a message for fellow weight lifters: “Please do not imitate such actions!”It’s not clear what motivated the man to get into such an awkward situation.

On September 19, 2016 we hold the Kick off ceremony for the Victory of the Heavenly Tribal Messiahship in Kampala Uganda under the guidance of Rev. Bakary Camara, with the goal of 12 couples bless 430 couples (each) during 120 days.We had 80 participants which included blessed families, blessed children and the youth.In the opening remarks Rev. Bakary spoke about how the seminar will be conducted and also gave a brief about Heavenly Tribal Messiah activities and the direction from True Mother, and about the start of the Heavenly Tribal Messiahship activities of 12 couples from Uganda who are going to give blessing to 430 couples in 120 days. He said that Heavenly Tribal Messiahship is the life line that connects us to True Parents.We had two lectures on Heavenly Tribal Messiahship in morning, led by Rev. Kililo, the sub-regional director of East Africa Speaking about :He spoke about Heavenly Tribal Messiahship activities in Asia especially the Phillipines, Cambodia, Nepal and India, explaining how how the people in Asia have been able to achieve the blessing of 430 couples.Successful Tribal Messiahship are working through one to one witnessing, or family party, approaching churches and educating the Pastors/Bishops.The Successful begin first by making the conditions, then create relationship, and then move to the level of education and harvesting.To start people do not need to go through 7 days and 21 days workshop before going to blessing. Even after 3 days of explaining the Principles of Creation, the Fall and the importance of blessing, we can bless the couples and there after we can focus on educating them.We need a systematic approach to Tribal Messiah ship, where by spiritual children are divided into 10 and each of the 10 takes care of the 43 couples.Environment in each country is different and therefor the witnessing strategies in each nation may differ.Keep record of our tribes as the Tribe increases through taking photographs, visiting them, knowing what this one has done, where they stay, whom they stay with etc and loving the spiritual children as our own children.Tribal Messiah takes responsibility of his children even when these children go astray. Now that True father is in spirit world, we need to work extra hard and fulfil our responsibility in achieving Tribal Messiahship in the nation. True Parents have completed and concluded their mission, our mission is to carry the cross and follow them on the path of Tribal MessiahshipRestoration of 7 nations by 2020 is very important for God and to fulfil this we need to go through the 8 stage formula from servant of servant all the way up to the Father showing how many couples are required for each level as the Nation is being restored.Participants divided in three groups for the discussion on:How to achieve Tribal Messiahship,How does Tribal Messiahship relate with Uganda today,when do we start implementing Tribal Messiahship in Uganda.Three groups consisting of about 20people each were created to discuss these questions. The first group was led by Rev. Edwin Plekhanov national leader to Burundi, the second group by Rev. Makuuza Francis national leader to Rwanda and the third group by Rev. Gimeyi Moses national leader to Uganda.After the discussion, a representative from each group shared what they had discussed:Group 1 was represented by Mr. Katungi Jackson, who spoke about reaching out to communities, schools, institutions as a way to achieve Tribal Messiahship. He also spoke about strategies like Social media, finding interests of people using these interests to connect to people to True Parents. He concluded by saying that we need to start now to do Tribal Messiahship.Group 2 was represented by Anna Nadunga, who spoke about using our providential organizations as a starting point in Tribal Messiahship, connecting with other organizations and continue on witnessing to politicians. Lady Anna also said that Tribal Messiahship has already begun and people are already doing their tribal messiahship.Group 3 was represented by Mr. Lugeba, who spoke about using Family church as the starting point in Tribal Messiahship. He also hinted on the financial challenge as the hindering block in the tribal messiahship activities.After reporting about the discussions, we had a testimony by Mr. Magoola David, who spoke about his mission in Busoga. There after we received guidance from our Regional President Rev. Camara.Guidance by the Regional President Rev. Bakary CamaraPurification of our mind and body is very important. We need to purify ourselves first before we witness to others. We really should avoide smoking and drinking.We should really try our best to connect to the heart of True Parents and Heavenly Parent through prayer and fasting constantly until we tap into the heart of God. He said that we have to really fulfill our responsibility.We should go out witnessing with a heart of saving the people, not with a heart of making members.True Parents have carried a heavy burden because of us. originally we are supposed to be blessed when we have our 3 spiritual children, who are willing to sacrifice their lives for us. But many members received blessing without fulfilling this condition and therefore True Parents were accused by Satan and they had to pay a huge indemnity. All issues arising from the True family are because of us who are failing to fulfill our responsibilities.We should stay faraway from our spouses unless we have a special mission from True Parents.Entering the kingdom of Heaven is depend onsuccess in our tribal messiahship activitoes. by FFWPU Uganda, Gimeyi Moses Joint Sunday ServiceDuring our Sunday service on September 20, Rev.

He did not disclose details of the new offer. Sears to ask bankruptcy judge to liquidate, potentially putting up to 68,000 people out of work, sources say Sears, facing liquidation, says it will close 80 more stores Eddie Lampert makes $4.6-billion bid to buy Sears in ‘last-ditch effort’ to keep retailer alive Drain said that Sears will consider Lampert’s offer versus a potential liquidation during a bankruptcy auction on Jan. 14.The development offers new hope that Sears could remain operational, albeit in smaller form, sparing the jobs of many of its 68,000 workers. Were Sears to liquidate its assets, it would become one of the most high-profile victims in the wave of bankruptcies that has swept the retail sector in the last few years, as the explosion in online shopping exacerbates the fierce price competition facing brick-and-mortar stores.In a stark contrast between e-commerce firms and many physical retailers, Amazon.com Inc became the world’s most valuable company for the first time this week, reaching a market capitalization of close to US$800 billion.Previous NegotiationsA main point of contention in the negotiations between Lampert and Sears previously centered on whether Lampert’s bid fully addressed the bankruptcy costs that Sears has racked up, according to sources familiar with the matter.The costs, which include bills from lawyers and financial advisers, are expected to exceed US$200 million, those sources said.Lampert’s bid proposed forgiving US$1.3 billion of debt he holds in exchange for ownership of the reconstituted Sears, a bankruptcy manoeuvre known as a credit bid.In addition, Lampert wanted a release from legal exposure related to a series of transactions he completed with the retailer before it filed for bankruptcy protection. Those made him the company’s biggest creditor, in addition to its largest shareholder.Lampert’s offer did not include putting up cash to back the credit bid. That raised concerns in the negotiations since the maneuver might not be allowed in court, the sources said, given ongoing investigations of Lampert’s pre-bankruptcy deals, which the hedge fund manager maintains were proper.Unsecured creditors have pushed for Sears to liquidate, partially because they contend they will realize a better financial recovery if it does. Those creditors, which include Sears landlords and bondholders, have also questioned Lampert’s pre-bankruptcy transactions with the retailer.Sears’ bankruptcy, which includes discount chain Kmart, followed a decade of revenue declines, hundreds of store closures, and years of deals by billionaire Lampert in an attempt to turn around the company he put together in 2005 through an US$11 billion deal.Sears dates back to the late 1880s and its mail-order catalogs. Merchandise from toys, medicine, gramophones, automobiles, kit houses and tombstones made it the Amazon of its time.The iconic retailer gradually lost its shine, however, as consumers turned to e-commerce and brick-and-mortar rivals such as Walmart Inc and Target Corp.Lampert had pledged to restore Sears to its glory days, when it owned the tallest building in the world as well as a radio station and Allstate insurance.But critics say Lampert let the stores deteriorate over the years, even as he bought the company’s stock and lent it money.The largest U.S. toy retailer, Toys ‘R’ Us, tried to emerge from its 2017 bankruptcy filing but was also forced to liquidate six months later, after creditors lost confidence in its turnaround plan.© Thomson Reuters 2019 More Reuters
