Specific content of love is a feeling of dedication, commitment and appearing on this basis, the spiritual interpenetration. Personality with spiritual and natural variations in the form of love completed unity, complementing each other, they act as one. The moral nature of love is revealed in its aspiration is not just a creature of another sex, but on quite specific, unique and unrepeatable person. Need love the most peculiar man in his youth. However, the natural and inevitable in this age outburst of passion is not always called itself love, and often for a great sense of love is accepted. Love implies the uniqueness of the chosen one and, accordingly, the harmonious fusion of three to another person.

In this loving experience joy, contentment, bringing joy to a loved one or loss of their suffering. Thus, in the love of purpose is not to satisfy selfish, and test of joy, pleasure through the reflected joy and delight a loved one. Formula of love is simple: if I feel good from what is good for you, and if I want you to be better and do my best to do this, I love you. If we accept this point of view, the word 'selfish love' become meaningless, since love itself is just a denial, overcoming selfishness, the highest degree of development of human relations. Sympathy and mutual love in successful marriage. Everyday concerns, the clash of characters, temperaments and personality traits quenched the power of love and care it is often the cause of the dissolution of marriage (see Divorce) or justify adultery infidelity (see extramarital sex).

Love between people, not between angels, and therefore all sorts of flaws, mistakes, conflicts, difficulties in the relationship – a common thing, even if people associate deepest love. All obstacles to love are the very nature of human personality with all its positive and negative qualities. Of course, there is an art to love, but it is also true that it is impossible predict how love will grow. The reality is much more varied and unpredictable ideas about how to make love richer and happier, and love it more often manifests itself as a shock.

Supreme Leader

Apparent a change in Iran? -There is a lot of pressure on the Supreme Leader of Iran for quite some time. Now, he seems in his strategy to be caved in. The economic situation in the country is far from rosy for very large parts of the population. Teacher taxis in addition, to be able to feed their families, many workers get paid no wages for months, strikes are prevented alternately with subversive or brutal methods by the State. Children begging or forced with 7 years to hard physical labour. The black market for human organs is flourishing, the offer is huge.

Despite consistently and ruthlessly carried out campaigns of execution of, there is a massive drugs problem in the Iran. Allegedly, mainly drug traffickers are executed to deter others. Nothing is improved with the drugs. To prevent what some Pasdaraneinheiten look, others instigate. It is the lucrative business with the drugs lies in the hands of the Pasdaran.

This includes all of the roofs sparrows it: the young people want to know more about religion or turn to other religions. Christian House Churches have enormous inlet, alone in Shiraz, there will be 30,000 members. Also the traditional spiritual orders such as the Nematollah Gonabadi Dervish order should have gotten strong inflow in recent years throughout Iran. Supposedly, the order has 4 million members. The regime can conceal even all these problems in the country. There are no new problems even if they worsen. But even the Executive, the judiciary and the legislature quarreled violently with each other beginning of 2012 and be accused each other of corruption. Ahmadinejad against Ali Laridschani, President of the Parliament. Sadegh Larijani, the Minister of Justice, against Ahmadinejad and verbal breakdown and beatings by members of Parliament completed the picture of the last few months. In addition there was criticism of Khamenei’s policies also from top ayatollahs, again and again what has more weight in the current system of Iran than we can imagine that in the West.

The TCU elaborated portflio with pointers adopted for public institutions, in Brazil and the exterior, for mensurao of performance in the intention of ' ' to contribute for the perfectioning of the public administration and consequent improvement of the installment of the services pblicos' ' (TCU, 2006). A pointer represents one ' ' varivel' ' that it is desired to measure, that is, characterizes the dimension to be evaluated. The values effectively measured and the desirable values for each pointer are, habitually, called of metric of the pointer of respective performance. Already the set of desired values is called frequently of goals. According to Blacksmith (2007), when determined activity it can be described by means of simple unidimensionais data and easily you quantified and measurable (former: taken care of parts or solved processes), if do not characterize the use of pointers, but of simple measurements of performance. The use of performance pointers if it makes necessary when it is not possible to effect such mensuraes of form direct, being the boarding of the evaluation most complex and multidimensional. Additionally, the analyses of the rude result of the solved processes can classify the quality of this result adding other agreed data aiming at to create pointers that reflect the set complete of action that generated that rude result, a good example would be a pointer that showed the cost incurred for the administration to solve each process.

A performance pointer acquires importance when it is evaluated inside of a picture of reference of accompaniment and chronological evaluation of the performance, inside of the same dimension reflected for the pointer (comparing the previous performance with the chain); or comparing the chain with some standard of independent comparison (either it a generic standard or the similar referencial of performance of other organizations or activities? benchmarking). Hronec (1993, P. 13) defines benchmarking, as being a structuralized method to measure processes and products with regard to others.

Country Life

He locked up its parliamentary career, in November of 1982, result of a cancer. In its speech of farewell (30.11.1982) he made question to leave clear its disposal in continuing acting politically: ' ' I am leaving this House this week, this is not fired, same because it is not of my habit to fire you are welcome. The life politics continues with me, will continue fighting there is, I will not only have the privilege to use this or that tribune. How much to more, I will continue in my life of old menestrel, singing here, singing there, singing acol, my teeny ones toadas polticas.' ' (Daily of the National Congress, Brasilia, DF, 2.12.1982). Few months before dying, Teotnio declared in interview to the press that kept with the death a relationship without asperezas.

It died in 27 of November of 1983, cancer generalized, leaving us until today the legacy of its proper life as example of patriotism and cordialidade, an example for all current politicians, also its son and heir politician Teotonio Brando Vilela Son. For occasion of its death, the periodical Leaf of So Paulo of 14 of November of 1983, relieved a homage making to publish an editorial to it where it analyzed the legacy left for the Senator of the Alagoas for the Country and the politics. In accordance with the publication, ' ' with disposal and ubiqidade, Teotnio fought against the will, the great power and the injustice. The absence of Teotnio Vilela puts term to a biography politics that the circumstances had transformed into Saga. It is in this mitolgica condition that its public life, now locked up, will continue reing-echo in the Brazilian panorama. Raised to the condition of national unamimity, packed by the affection of the public opinion and by the applause of countless admirers, it is probable that its fight opened against the cancer has been perceived as evident metaphor? congregating the staff and the collective one? of the identical combat that it looked to stop, with amazing disposal and ubiqidade, against the will, the great power and the injustice.
