As tomorrow is officially pay day(yeah, we get paid on Tue), I am vowing right here and now to never be broke again. I have everything in place to set myself up for the rest of my career, if I’m smart about it. And one step in the right direction was setting up my first 401k yesterday! When I get on my feet, I’ll definitely be seeking some opinions on some foundations/organizations that are trustworthy enough to receive a monthly donation from me. The way I look at it, just getting one lease a month, I can donate to two, maybe three organizations. I made a promise to myself that when I finally got on my feet, I’d help others that were less fortunate. I’m almost there :)
Gaza conflict: Five dead at hospital hit by Israeli strike
At least five people have been killed and 70 injured by an Israeli strike on a hospital in Gaza, Palestinians say.
The Israeli military said it had targeted a cache of anti-tank missiles in the hospital’s “immediate vicinity”.
Overnight, more than 30 members of two Palestinian families died in Israeli strikes, Gazan health officials said.
On Monday evening Israel said seven of its soldiers had been killed in the past 24 hours, bringing the number of Israeli military dead to 25.
Two Israeli civilians have also died in the recent violence.
The Palestinian death toll from the two-week conflict has now passed 550, the majority of them civilians, according to Gaza’s health ministry. The UN says more than 100,000 Gazans have now been displaced.
Israel says it has killed more than 170 militants since Thursday night, when it launched the ground offensive phase of its two-week old operation to end rocket fire from Gaza.
Ten militants were killed on Monday after using tunnels to get into Israel near the town of Sderot.
Push for ceasefire
Palestinian television showed footage of wounded people being treated after the strike at the Al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.
Doctors say several Israeli tank shells hit the hospital’s reception, intensive care unit and operating theatres.
Most of the wounded were doctors, according to Palestinian officials.
Appeals have been made to the Red Cross to help evacuate patients from the building, the BBC’s Yolande Knell reports from Gaza.
Israel had told residents of neighbouring areas to head to Deir al-Balah for their own safety as its ground offensive continues to target neighbourhoods to the east of Gaza City for a second day, our correspondent adds.
The Israeli army said it had “successfully targeted” a cache of anti-tank missiles in the area.
"Civilian casualties are a tragic inevitability of [Hamas’] brutal and systematic exploitation of homes, hospitals and mosques in Gaza," it said in a statement.
Israel says that approximately 131 rockets and mortars were fired at Israel on Monday, of which at least 108 hit Israel and 17 were intercepted. No casualties were reported from these attacks.
I’m waking up on my day off to some coffee and a little Fallujah… Getting settled in up here pretty nicely. Just patiently waiting until Tuesday when I get my first full paycheck. Fuckkkkk. I need furniture, but gonna have to save a bit. Fortunately for me I can sleep pretty well on carpet wrapped in a ton of blankets/comforters haha.
And before anyone starts feeling bad, don’t. I’ll be fine :) I’ll show you my view and you’ll see why I’m not stressing. I’m at peace. It feels great.
Can someone with some knowledge of football explain what the fuck just happened, because I’ve lost count of the number of games I’ve watched that end 0-0 after 90+ mins and Germany scored 5 goals in the first 29 minutes against Brazil of all countries!!! It’s not like they did that against one of the worst at football. You can’t blame the goalkeeper for all 7 of those right? He’s gotta get some help from the defense too! Did losing Neymar really devastate them?
My heart goes out to the Brazilians…
I’m spending my fourth moving in to my apartment and drinking beer all day and night :) This place looks ridiculous right now but I am really, really impressed with myself for getting all this shit in my car. I knew that playing Tetris as a kid would benefit me one day; that was moving day. :)
