TODAY’S MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:
A drop of water has the tastes of the water of the seven seas: there is no need to experience all the ways of worldly life. The reflections of the moon on one thousand rivers are from the same moon: the mind must be full of light. — Hung Tzu-ch’eng
TODAY’S WISDOM FROM AROUND THE WORLD:
L’amour faite passer les temps. Les temps faite passer l’amour. (Love makes time pass. Time makes love pass.) — French Sundial Motto
TODAY’S CHINESE PROVERB:

FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY:
Happy Birthday! The months ahead for you are likely to be full of changes and challenges as you toil to combine the old and the new. This is an opposition that could come about in a number of ways, but the position of the planets suggests that this will happen in terms of your love life. It could be that you’ll be stuck in a particular way of thinking or it might be that you need to tone down certain expectations, which you can do. And once you have achieved this you will feel great and ready to take on anything. For some a job change is looking likely, particularly after August, which will see a time of positive transition for many signs! This won’t necessarily be an easy time, but it will provide some rare opportunities to move you closer to your ultimate goals!

There are signs in the stars that Beyoncé is about to surprise everyone! The movement of the planets indicates a sudden departure, which could mean an unexpected new project or possibly a change closer to home!
ARIES DAILY HOROSCOPE | Mar 21 – Apr 19
Fresh planetary transits place the emphasis on romance, and could help you to find the right words to perhaps address something that has been hanging in the air. That said; don’t assume that there are no conditions attached when it comes to resolving a distinctly sensitive matter!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 5, 14, 21, 37, 46
TAURUS DAILY HOROSCOPE| Apr 20 – May 20
Don’t believe everything you hear today. News of a potential development should be viewed as a possibility, not a definite. That said; it’s possible that a casual observation could hold more truth than you realize. As an aside; romantic matters could take an interesting turn when you least expect it!
Today’s Numbers: 1, 15, 23, 28, 35, 42
GEMINI DAILY HOROSCOPE| May 21 – Jun 20
Fresh planetary accents will bring an uplifting and dynamic vibe. On a practical level you’ll have the capacity to gain more insight into a personal matter. When it comes to romance, it could be that you get an unexpected second chance when it comes to something unsettled!
Today’s Numbers: 2, 17, 19, 25, 31, 47
CANCER DAILY HOROSCOPE| Jun 21 – Jul 22
An airier vibe may offer you the chance to catch up on anything currently outstanding. However, for many water signs, the atmosphere may feel a little tense. It’s possible that something said may be misconstrued. Don’t take it personally. Besides; romance could emerge out of a potentially awkward moment!
Today’s Numbers: 5, 14, 22, 29, 32, 45
LEO DAILY HOROSCOPE| Jul 23 – Aug 22
Fresh planetary transits are likely to bring a gentle lift when it comes to emotional and romantic matters. However; do be aware of the current vibe’s limits, since the emphasis is likely to contain a marginally clumsy undercurrent. As with others, casual comments could rebound quite quickly!
Today’s Numbers: 6, 13, 22, 26, 34, 46
VIRGO DAILY HOROSCOPE| Aug 23 – Sep 22
There’s a distinct sense of moving forward, thanks to a certain lift in the cosmos. That said, when it comes to existing agreements you may need to avoid inconsistencies. When it comes to romance, there’s an unusual tendency to be a little too extravagant. The root cause of this could go deeper than you realize!
Today’s Numbers: 7, 15, 19, 25, 36, 45
LIBRA DAILY HOROSCOPE| Sep 23 – Oct 22
The revitalized vibe should work in your favor, since it will usher in a very amiable atmosphere, which bodes well for romance in general. However; for today there’s a greater chance of classic misunderstandings, crossed wires and mixed signals. Do take care with what may seem like humorous throwaway comments!
Today’s Numbers:4, 14, 22, 27, 38, 49
SCORPIO DAILY HOROSCOPE| Oct 23 – Nov 21
Fresh planetary accents are likely to soften romantic and emotional matters. Because you’ll have an instinct for knowing what to say and when to say it, it’s a day to perhaps tie up one loose end. However; you may need to watch that you don’t bring up the past in a negative context!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 12, 21, 23, 37, 46
SAGITTARIUS DAILY HOROSCOPE| Nov 22 – Dec 21
An airy vibe will emphasize your social zone for the next few weeks. However, for today there is a chance of having too much of a good thing and overdoing it. Pace yourself. In addition; you too, like a couple of other signs, could experience a heightened sense of blurred lines when it comes to romance!
Today’s Numbers:2, 5, 14, 26, 32, 48
CAPRICORN DAILY HOROSCOPE| Dec 22 – Jan 19
You may not sense the refreshing vibe immediately, but it will start to filter through, especially when it comes to romance. Use some time to address a lingering issue that is possibly connected to an emotional matter. Don’t look for problems, but if something doesn’t feel quite right, then do question it!
Today’s Numbers: 7, 16, 21, 32, 36, 47
AQUARIUS DAILY HOROSCOPE| Jan 20 – Feb 18
An airy vibe should give you a little more control over a personal matter. It’s also a reasonably useful day for making a good impression when it comes to romance. That said; be attentive: don’t leave someone else to do all the work, otherwise you may well appear a little thoughtless!
Today’s Numbers: 3, 14, 22, 26, 34, 49
PISCES DAILY HOROSCOPE| Feb 19 – Mar 20
It’s either going to be one of those warm and loving days, or one of those rather unreliable ones. Your ability to think things through fully could take a dip, and you could realize that you have taken a slightly poor decision. It might be a sensible strategy to refrain from overstated gestures for today!
Christian Horner says Max Verstappen's triumph in Austin – a hunting ground historically dominated by the mighty Mercedes team – was "a big one" for Red Bull. A flawless performance in the US Grand Prix coupled with a bold undercut strategy allowed Verstappen to overturn an early deficit to Hamilton and then fend off the seven-time world champion to conquer his eighth win of the 2021 season. The triumph puts the Dutchman 12 points clear of his rival in the Drivers' championship with five rounds to go while Red Bull reduced its gap to Mercedes in the Constructors' standings to 23 points. "This is a big one because it has been such a stronghold of Lewis and Mercedes," said Horner. "To get the pole was a landmark moment for us and then to convert it into a win even...
THIS WEEK IN LATIN AMERICA BOLIVIA: Bolivian prosecutors charged with crimes including genocide for the events following the 2019 coup which left her as interim president of the country on Friday. The charges relate to actions taken by Áñez, when she issued a decree giving the military responsibility for public security. In the next week, security forces shot 20 people to death and injured dozens of others in two clashes in Cochabamba and El Alto.

The Google Doodle for October 25 celebrates the 127th birthday of French author and surrealist photographer Claude Cahun, celebrated for their self-portrait photography that highlighted the fluidity of gender norms and sexuality. Cahun was born as Lucy Renee Mathilde Schwob in 1894 in Nantes, France. Growing up surrounded by creativity in their family, Cahun moved to study literature in 1919, shaved their head, and adopted their famed gender-neutral name in revolt against societal convention. A birthday #GoogleDoodle for a revolutionary artist far ahead of their time: French author & surrealist self-portrait photographer Claude Cahun ????????

Following allegations that former premier Gladys Berejiklian set aside millions of dollars for a project in her secret partner’s electorate while she was Treasurer, many in Wilcannia are wondering which cabinet members they have to screw in order to get adequate funding for their community. “That’s the official application process isn’t it? I mean, I don’t usually go for chinless, white toffs, but I’m willing to take one for the team if it means we can finally get funding for vital projects,” said Wilcannia resident Annie James. “Except I won’t go near Paul Toole, you have to draw a line somewhere.” Although some are concerned that a secret affair with a member of Parliament could lead to another ICAC investigation, locals have been quick to point out that government...

For years, Apple’s iPhone Live Photos has offered the coolest camera trick. With one click and no tripod, I could easily transform a body of water into a long exposure like dreamy shot, with long flowing water. To me, it looked like one photographed by the masters with a view camera. Or, close to that anyway. To get there was simple. Take the photo in Live Photos, open the Photos app, swipe up on the image, and watch the computational photography engine do its magic. Within seconds, my straight shot of a scene that called for Long Exposure (best taken over a body of water) transformed, in front of my eyes, from flat to magical. But in iOS 15, the operating system...
An unhappy Fernando Alonso took exception with a call made by the stewards in Sunday's US Grand Prix, insisting Kimi Raikkonen should have been ordered to give back a position the Finn had gained by running off the track at Turn 1. Alonso and Raikkonen were battling for position on lap 16 when the pair entered COTA's Turn 1 side-by-side, with the Alpine driver on the outside. Alonso's momentum ran the Alfa charger wide on the exit, but Raikkonen nevertheless got a run on the Spaniard and passed him. In a race where several drivers were ordered to give back a position gained after putting all four wheels off the track, Raikkonen was not ordered to do so, a decision that baffled Alonso. "The rules are a little bit random," quipped the visibly frustrated Alpine...
