Serial „Geniusz” jest zapisem kolejnych etapów życia Einsteina – począwszy od lat młodości, kiedy przyszły noblista jest obdarzonym niezwykłą wyobraźnią zbuntowanym nastolatkiem, poprzez trudne początki kariery naukowej, aż po zdobycie światowej sławy, jaką przyniosła mu teoria względności. W kolejnych odcinkach serialu poznamy także kulisy burzliwego życia uczuciowego Einsteina i jego skomplikowanych prywatnych relacji. Produkcja powstała na podstawie głośnej biografii autorstwa Waltera Isaacsona pt. „Einstein. Jego życie, jego wszechświat”.

Twórcy cyklu „Discopoland” z kamerami odwiedzają miejsca związane z fenomenem nurtu disco polo, zaglądają za kulisy scen koncertowych, dyskotek, sal weselnych i fanklubów. Rozmawiają z muzykami i tymi, którzy są odbiorcami ich twórczości. Próbują „wgryźć się” w najprzeróżniejsze aspekty zjawiska, jakim jest disco polo i od podszewki poznać skupione wokół niego środowisko. Ten program to spojrzenie z perspektywy osoby z zewnątrz, wnikliwego obserwatora, stroniącego od łatwych ocen i prostego etykietowania, kierującego się życzliwą ciekawością ludzi i otaczającego świata. Wszystko to w atrakcyjnej i dynamicznej formie, nawiązującej do najnowszych trendów, prezentowanych w światowych stacjach muzycznych!

Wybieramy się do Ełku, czyli miasta rodzinnego Marcina Millera z zespołu Boys. Razem z wokalistą odwiedzamy PUB karaoke, by wspólnie zaśpiewać największe hity artysty. Ale zespół Boys, to nie tylko Marcin Miller, ale również jego tancerze, którzy zdradzają kilka ciekawostek ze swojej pracy i życia. Widzowie poznają też Ewelinę i Artura, fanów disco polo, którzy mieszkają w Lipkowie, 15 km od Olsztynka, gdzie rozwijają agroturystykę w samym środku lasu z daleka od świata. Jelenie, łosie, dziki i lisy, to ich najbliżsi sąsiedzi.

An Indian school converts submissive girls into empowered women

  • Amrit Dhillon

Delhi: Going on stage at school and acting out scenes from your home life can uncover hidden truths. The stage at Prerna School for Girls in Lucknow is the place where the performers – girls from poor families in the surrounding slums – suddenly realise they are unequal.

As they recreate and enact family routines, the scenes show how, in the mornings, their brothers are allowed to sleep late, are given milk and, if any are available, eggs for breakfast while they get leftovers. After school, the boys play with friends or watch TV while they cook, clean, wash, and fetch water.

‘We get them to ask questions they have never asked. Is it fair that you do more household chores than a boy? Why is your homework not as important as his?  Why does he get more food than you – does he need more nutrition?” says Urvashi Sahni, founder and director of the school.

Feminist principles are conveyed through drama, music, and videos to make the girls aware of how Indian society functions and their status in it. Their eyes are opened to the daily discrimination they face.

“Once we have made them aware, we ask them if they ever protest about the unfairness to their parents. Once they start to resist in small ways, they resist in big ways,” says Sahni.

The school was set up in 2003 with 80 students from kindergarten to Class 12. Now there are almost 900 young girls, mostly from very difficult backgrounds, who pay just 100 rupees per month. The fathers are often alcoholics and sometimes on their second or third wife. The mothers work as maids. The girls too often work as domestic helps in the mornings which is why the school operates from 2 pm to 5.30.

Ignorant fathers, backed up by stepmothers who want the girls to help in the house, are reluctant to let them go to school. When they hear that girls are being kept at home, Prerna teachers often intervene by visiting the house and persuading the parents to let the girl attend.

Most women in India have so profoundly internalised their second class status that they are not even aware of it. When asked why they are denied opportunities, the answer is a shrug and ‘this is how things are’.

The school’s feminist pedagogy aims to undo this internalisation. “Every effort in every class is to build a perception of being equal,” says Sahni.

Apart from the special sessions on society and patriarchy, a feminist perspective pervades every classroom. In a maths class, for example, the teacher will use examples that show women working outside the home or making their own decisions.

If it’s a history class, the teacher will take a historical figure such as the 19th century Queen of Jhansi, a symbol of resistance to British rule, and ask the girls: What are you resisting? What weapons did the Queen of Jhansi use and what weapons are you using to fight discrimination?

Even the way the girls carry themselves has to be tackled.  “Girls are told to look down to avoid eye contact, speak softly, be quiet and passive. We tell them to speak out, to laugh loudly, be confident and to speak up for themselves,” says Sahni.

All these small daily acts of questioning what happens at home and of changing their bearing add up to a different consciousness – and a different life. Moni Kannaujia, 22, was in Class 10 when her father said it was time to get her married. Her teachers visited her home many times and, with great difficulty, persuaded him to let her continue her education.

Kannaujia is now doing a journalism degree at Lucknow University. “If it weren’t for the school, I’d be married with two kids. That’s what has happened to all the girls in my family,” she says.

Though a University of California, Berkeley Ph.D graduate, Sahni says that her own realisation of the inequality in her own life came late, in her late twenties. Though from a middle class family, she was married at 18 – no questions asked. When she gave birth to her second daughter, the family’s response was cold.

Then, in 1982, a cousin who was married with a toddler “set herself on fire” and died. That was the official version but Sahni has never bought it. She feels that something else happened and it was covered up by the suicide theory. “That was when I began to explore feminism,” she says.

One of her pupils is Jyoti Pal, 17, who is in Class 12. Pal’s mother is a maid and her father works as a gardener. She says the school has changed her and she has changed her parents. “My father didn’t want me to come at first but now he says that since I and my sister are doing so well at school, sons are no longer so important,” she says.

Although some parents resist the idea of sending their daughters to Prerna, it’s intriguing that the level of resistance is not higher than it is. After all, this is the education that can transform their daughters from obedient to rebellious.

Sahni has a theory about this. She thinks that most uneducated parents think of education as memorising textbooks, sitting exams and getting certificates. “They have no idea it can be subversive. By the time they do, it’s too late!”

The state government of Uttar Pradesh (Lucknow is the capital) has been so impressed that four years ago, it asked Prerna to train its schools not just to teach, but to act as advocates for girls’ rights. Out of the initial 746 schools, Prerna has trained 346 so far.

Sahni is currently working on a policy brief to present to the government which will offer training to all 243,000 schools in the state.

House Sitting brings you to countries of your choice.  Now and again, house sitters like us, leave the animals for a while and go to an event.  Trish and I happened to be house/pet sitting in Sydney for the 2017 Mardi Gras.  Through past housesitting, we made friends with a couple whose mother’s apartment was on the parade route.  What a great opportunity to sit with a drink and watch the incredible outfits and floats.  This is one  of the largest festivals in the world.  It brings out the best in people of all sexual orientations.  For LGBTI persons that live in rural communities or homophobic countries, it is a week of LGBTI art, films, fairs, issues and discussions with events.  It is estimated that it generates more than A$30 million dollars for the state of New South Wales.

We are Queer, We are HERE.

As with most gay pride parades, Sydney Mardi Gras includes LGBTI members who are in the police, fire, ambulance and military. More and more commercial companies have floats recognising the power of the dollar and genuine belief in equality for all≥

History

On June 24, 1978 the Gay Solidarity Group met after the Stonewall Riots of the USA.  They totalled 500 persons who inspire of the police brutality of the Stonewall Riots decided to march in solidarity.  Like their American counterparts they wished to repeal and send a message to the Australian government.  Their numbers rose to 2,000 and their slogan was “out of the bars and into the streets.”  Although the organisers had obtained permission to march,  this was revoked.  The police broke up the parade/march. When the protesters reached Kings Cross and were dispersing, the police arrested 53 of the participants.  Most charges were dropped, but the newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald, published the names of those arrested.  This led to the victimisation of men and women who were not out to families or to their employers.  Many lost family connections and their jobs.

The Following Year – 1979

History tends to repeat itself and many governments that have imposed restrictions or tried to suppress movements have watched them grow!

The second Mardi Gras Parade occurred in 1979 despite opposition by gay media, businesses and groups. The 1979 parade, in recognition of the Stonewall Riots and commemorating the riot of the previous year, was attended by 3,000 people. In that same year, the Labor Government of New South Wales, led by Neville Wran, repealed the Summary Offences Act so that police arrests would not occur.  The theme was “Power in the Darkness.”  No arrests were made.

The third, 1980 Parade was watched by a crowd of around 5,000.  By 1987 the crowd was estimated at 100,000.  This was a sad time as the Aids epidemic raged and with it bigoted and religious hatred that “Aids was God’s punishment.”

 

The 1990s.

1991: National Gay and Lesbian Film Festival included.

1993: Largest night time outdoor parade in the world.

1994:  Theme “We are Family” in response to the International Year of the Family.  There were 137 floats and over 600,000 spectators.  For the first time ABC TV filmed the event.

Later Years

The 2009 performance figures indicated about 9,500 participants and 134 floats were part of the parade, making it the largest ever.

2011: Up to 300,000 spectators from Australia and overseas turned out in 2011 for the celebrations.  That year ‘intersex” was adopted to allow for greater inclusion.  It allowed itself to be called by the acronym LGBTQI – (bisexual, transsexual, queer and intersects).

 

Somethings Never Change – That’s Great!’

Dykes on Bikes

This is the picture I saw from the balcony – 2017

Each parade starts with approximately 200 or more Dykes on Bikes – sometimes accompanied by firework displays.  The route itself is approximately 1.7 km or 1.1 miles through the Sydney CBD and Darlinghurst.

The parade travels along Oxford Street before turning into Flinders Street.  (This is where we viewed it in 2017)  If you are in Sydney at this time for the year (Summer) do not miss it.  There are parties with international performers.

Older women have to see themselves as beautiful and feel inside that they are gorgeous (Credit: Harry Were/Lonely Lingerie)

 

 

If you are an older lesbian or straight woman this will be a happy article of what you already knew – females are beautiful regardless of age.

New Zealand Sets the Bar Higher

We can praise this beautiful country for being a leader in the world.  This was the first country to give women the vote.  It has marriage equality (wake up Australia). You probably have seen the “Calendar Girls” from England that posed naked with discretion for cancer causes.  Now, New Zealand has 56-year-old Mercy Brewer, a former supermodel who hails from Scotland, is making big waves as the star of the New Zealand intimates label Lonely Lingerie‘s Fall 2017 campaign.  Look at her with those laced edges on her bra.   Sexy! Sexy!  She is a work of art.   In fact, every woman is a work of art.  We just have to ignore those skinny models and know, that behind many of them, are serious eating disorders.

Older Lesbians Can Define How They Look

Younger lesbians may not be fully aware of how older lesbians defined themselves.   Look back to just 60 years ago.  In Europe and North America, many lesbians fell into the “butch” and “fem” role.   The butches often wore men’s clothing complete with ties and masculine shoes.  If the butch downplayed the role – she would become a little more feminine for a reason.  This would occur mostly when the two women joined two gay men and went dancing.  They set out to look like two heterosexual couples.

Cris Williamson, the singer (and one of the founders of Oliver records) stunned New York in the 1970s, when she and Meg Christian took over Carnegie Hall.  They both wore tuxes.   In fact, most of the women in the audience wore tuxes.  W

Fast Forward to Toronto and the University of Toronto.  Sometime in the 1980s/1990, Cris Williamson came out in a long skirt and some of the audience bowed her.   Then ellen came out along with other lesbians.   ellen’s spouse, Portia, wears dresses most of the time.  Around this time, a local female pastor at a MCC church in Toronto, would wear masculine outfits followed by feminine outfits.  She taught us not to label.  This switch from masculine to feminine outfits must have been a challenge to lesbians in self-designated roles.

Free to Be YOU – 

Basically, what I am saying is that there are additions to the word and definition of “Lesbian.”  Ruby Rose (Australian beauty) and  on the Orange is the New Black series, speaks about “fluidity.”  Over the years, I have known many lesbian couples that share make up and are very feminine.

 

Now, there is intimate lingerie.    Work that one out for yourself.

   LAPS =          Langley Animal Protection Agency

Let me take you to the city of Langley, British Columbia, Canada, and introduce you to Shelly Roche.  Shelly is the loving foster mom of an incredible kitten called Cassidy.

Missing Hind Legs

It must have been quite a harrowing shock for Shelly to discover a tiny nine week old kitten without hind legs.  He was missing both kind legs  below the knee.  There was some sort of trauma when he was born.

Put Him Down!

Shelly took Cassidy to an emergency vet who suggested that his life should be terminated.

Shelly is a strong woman who fosters abandoned animals for the Langley Animal Protection Society.  She was determined not to give up on him.  There was something about Cassidy that Shelly decided that he, too, was a fighter.  She wanted him to be given a chance to survive and know love and to put fear, pain and starvation behind him.

Let’s Get Cassidy Moving!

Cassidy moves thanks to young kids

Kindness and creativity knows no gender or age barrier.  Two local stud3nts built a custom 3-D printed wheelchair to give Cassidy an opportunity to walk.  It worked.  Cassidy was given hope and he lost the frustration of not being able to walk and turned it into an adventure.

Cassidy the Internet Hero

There are many good things associated with the internet.  Nearly everyone needs a heart-warming story and be inspired by people or animals.

Cassidy on his vacuum robot

Someone suggested that Cassidy ride a Roomba vacuum cleaner.  This is a robot cleaner that knows how to avoid hitting furniture.  More information can be found about Cassidy at TinyKittens Society.

House and Pet Sitting in Sydney, Australia allowed us to drive a couple of hours to the Blue Mountains.  This is a National Park and pets are not allowed.  Sadly, we left our lovely corgi, Snoop, at home for the afternoon.  He did not seem to mind as we took him everywhere for the 10 days that we lived in Crows Nest, Sydney.

Snoop, the beautiful Corgi

Are the Blue Mountain Really Blue?

No, not really, but at certain times of the day they can have a blueish look to them.    They are not high in the sense of European or New Zealand mountains, but they are well worth a visit.  There are scenic walks where incredible bird species are flying over head or in nearby bushes or trees. (See above images).  Walk around the sheer cliffs and encounter eucalyptus forests, waterfalls and villages with inviting guesthouse.

Katoomba, Blue Mtns.

Katoomba is one of the wonderful towns located beside the Blue Mountains.  Sit and enjoy a meal or beverage in cafes and pubs that overlook dramatic scenery.  Australia is an old continent and viewing this landscape can take you back to about 60 million years when the Aborigines first arrived in Australia.  The land is, of course, much older.

The Three Sisters.

The Three Sisters

We first visited the Blue Mountains about a decade ago, and it was nice to return in 2017.  Back then, Trish and I lined ourselves up for a photograph.  We did it in such a way that we had the three sisters between us, thus, there were FIVE sisters.  LOL

The Missing Cows

Missing Cows?

As you are probably aware, Captain James Cook arrived in Australia in 1770.  This was the same year that Wales, Ireland and Scotland became part of Great Britain.  The government was anxious to make Australia a colony.  The majority of settlers were mainly convicts.

The isolation and fear of attack from Aboriginals (Gundungurra people) deterred convicts from escaping.  However, much to the annoyance of the Governor, a group of cows escaped.  Armed search parties set out but the cows eluded them.  As with most colonizers, more settlers were needed and exploration of the land around Sydney followed.  One way to earn money from the British government and earn the Governor’s approval was to volunteer to be an explorer.  One former convict, John Wilson, may have been the first European to have discovered the Blue Mountain and gain access to them.   It was during this exploration that the missing cows were found!  Wilson never got to enjoy his fortune and fame.  He made the mistake of abducting an Aboriginal woman for his own personal use.  This act resulted in his death at Aboriginal hands.

The Gundungurra People.

A descendent of the Gundungurra people with the Three Sisters behind her

When John Wilson arrived at the Blue Mountains, the Gundungurra people were already living there.  This Aboriginal group tell of their creation story where DREAMTIME creatures, named Mirigan and Garangatch fought an epic battle.  These two creatures were half-fish and half-reptile and the reptile part scarred the landscape in this area as they fought one another.

 

Consider house and pet sitting.  Now in 2017, we have done this magical living for four years and hope to continue.

STUCK AT A CROSSROADS: THINK ABOUT SOME CHANGES

Paula here.   I write to find out what I know.  I research to find out what others know.  The two are interchangeable.

Change

Change is inevitable in our lives.  We can make changes or changes happen to us. For example, we can make a change by   taking a course, or our partner leaves us – a change brought upon us.  We may not realise it in kindergarten, but the entire road ahead of us will be a series of changes.  It will be a matter of ascending and descending life’s challenges and adventures.  However, there are often times when we reach a plateau and we either find it peaceful from the long life of stress or we vegetate because it is comfortable.  There is also the journey within where we start to find out who we are – what are purpose in life should be – and how we find peace.

The Merry-Go-Round- 

Most children and young adults, are attracted to the lights and noises of the Merry-Go-Round.  Kids happily yell from painted animals, lights flash overhead and parents cheer with the odd order “to hold on with both hands.”  For kids, it is an innocent ride.  This blog concentrates on the adult merry-go-round that can be escapism, or a happy ride – just bobbing up and down.  It can also be a gruesome whirling out of control. Any form of addiction or accepting abuse would fall into this category.

Many young adults head for the ‘big city lights.’  If you are gay, it is a chance to be anonymous even in a heterosexual world.  There are many Merry-Go-Rounds that can be separated in social, economic and even spiritual realms.  In our younger days, we could dream on the Merry-Go-Round and burn- the -candle- at – ends.

Now and again, a Merry-Go-Round can be enjoyable, but when we use the term to mean drudgery, boring repetition or soul-slavery, then we had better get off.

Getting-Off and Going Forward

At the crossroads, these may be some of the questions asked.

“Is this all there is to life?” 

 “Am I just working from pay- check to pay-check?”

 “Has my relationship diminished from love to just living together?”  

Am I drinking my life away?

At this, stage we need to make a choice – give up, or make a change.  We may not know what the change looks like, but we know we need to look for purpose and direction in our life.  This is when we need the clarity so as not to completely turn our world topsy-turvy or upside down.

Short, Medium, Long-Range Changes/Goals

If your job is the problem, it may not be wise to give it up as your first change.  Start with small changes – getting out more often, taking up a hobby – meeting a friend once a week.  Perhaps, loosing weight is a goal, but it takes time and dedication and to refrain from going overboard (6 days a week at the gym).  It is possible that starting with some these short-term achievable goals, it may give your greater coping powers to deal with your workplace.

When these changes have brought you greater happiness and perhaps more friends, then a job change can happen.  There are no hard and fast rules.

The “Bright” Moment or “Dark” Past!

Don’t let what has happened in the past, hold you back from the present moment.  You cannot change what you did, or didn’t do in the past.  You cannot change what has been done to you.  Don’t carry that person around as baggage.  If you do, he or she is still hurting you.  There are many ways to symbolically ‘let go.”  Write the regrets or hurts on a piece of paper and burn it.  Another way is to write these things on a balloon and let it fly away. (That way, you like the balloon can soar and feel lighter).

Eat Well and Exercise

Fuel up with good foods and exercise and watch your rapid acceleration into a better life.  Everything takes time.  Cut down on the alcohol and junk food.  Develop self-will in little steps.  Read positive books – see positive movies – enjoy positive people.

Accept and Promote YOU!

 

Here are the lyrics of the song: “ I’ve Never Been to Me.”


Oh I’ve been to Nice and the isle of Greece

While I sipped champagne on a yacht

I moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo

and showed ’em what I’ve got

I’ve been undressed by kings

and I’ve seen some things

That a woman ain’t s’posed to see

I’ve been to paradise, but I’ve never been to me


There are so many positive results from loving the self.

 

success is target

 

  1. We slowly start to become happier, more positive and others notice.
  2. People are drawn upbeat people and slowly move away from the negative ones.

3.  Our happiness is joined by a friend called “self-confidence” and other friends can offer themselves “empathy for others,” ‘service to others” and “it’s good to be alive.”

4.  This is not Utopia.  Life gives us challenges.  However, if we build upon positive goals and positive thinking, we can handle these changes easier.

Paula.

OBAMA’S BARRAGE OF COMPLETE SENTENCES SEEN AS BRUTAL ATTACK ON TRUMP

CHICAGO (The Borowitz Report)—In an appearance at the University of Chicago on Monday, former President Barack Obama unloaded a relentless barrage of complete sentences in what was widely seen as a brutal attack on his successor, Donald Trump.

Appearing at his first public event since leaving office, Obama fired off a punishing fusillade of grammatically correct sentences, the likes of which the American people have not heard from the White House since he departed.

“He totally restricted his speech to complete sentences,” Tracy Klugian, a student at the event, said. “It was the most vicious takedown of Trump I’d ever seen.”

“About five or six sentences in, I noticed that all of his sentences had both nouns and verbs in them,” Carol Foyler, another student, said. “I couldn’t believe he was going after Trump like that.”

Obama’s blistering deployment of complete sentences clearly got under the skin of their intended target, who, moments after the event, responded with an angry tweet: “Obama bad (or sick) guy. Failing. Sad!”

House/pet sitting in nearby Cambridge, N.Z., allows us to drive to the Hamilton Gardens. There are two Renaissance Gardens, one is Italian and the other is English. There are similarities in the planning of both with the thought that God’s creation and the universe was based on order through geometric patterns. Symbolism for both gardens was important and both borrowed from other countries.

Have You Heard of Didymus Mountain?

Sixteen century planned by Didymus

I had not until I researched how Tudor gardens were designed and planted. Didymus Mountain was the pen-name of 16th century writer Thomas Hill. He designed the knot garden

. I found these images on the web.
Around the gardens were placed mythical beasts with an arbour. The Elizabethan wall and its stone pavilion was a copy from a pavilion at Montacute House

Tudor Garden Entertainment

The aristocracy loved to host fantasy plays or ‘masques.’ Masques were a favourite of the English royalty and gentry. Originally, they began as an event that followed a nobleman’s wedding. Masqued performers would dance and play music and reveal their identity at the end by removing their masks.

Mask plays

The Tudor Pavilion

This delightful building was often used by the family for special personal events. From the windows, the family would often enjoy special desserts such as marzipan that would be accompanied by sweet spiced wine. This was an opportunity for poetry recitals or musicians.

Fantasy and Mythical Beasts

Most tudor gardens boasted of beasts on green and white striped poles. These were the colours of the ruling Tudors. Typically, the beasts would include the following: unicorn, sea serpent, dragon, phoenix, centaur or a griffin. William Shakespeare’s character “Bottom”( the donkey) would be a talking piece and an honour to Shakespeare’s play, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

Tudor flags combined the York and Lancaster roses that represented both houses in the War of the Roses. The following beasts represented Tudor monarchs and famous persons.

 

Mythical Beasts

Griffin: King Henry VIII (reigned 1509-1547)

Dragon: Queen Elizabeth I (reigned 1558-1603) famous for the offspring of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

Unicorn: Mary, Queen of Scots (reigned 1542-1567

Centaur: Sir Thomas More (lawyer, statesman, social philosopher, Lord Chancellor under Henry VIII

Phoenix: Sir Francis Drake (privateer, slaver, sailor)

Satyr: Sir Francis Bacon (lawyer, natural philosopher, historian, writer, scientist)

Sea Serpent: Sir Walter Raleigh (writer, poet, soldier, aristocrat, privateer)

Donkey: William Shakespeare (playwright, poet)

Paula here.   I am a Christian lesbian.  I have taught theology and I take the Bible within its historical context.  However, I have been having an online dialogue with Pastor Fred Barungi.  It is hard to dialogue when a Christian pastor ignores the words of Jesus and continues to “judge” and “throw stones” at homosexuals.   If an impartial alien were to read our dialogue, it would ask,

Alien

Alien: “How long have homosexuals existed on earth?”

Answer:  “Since the Dawn of Civilisation.  They are in every culture and on every continent.”

Alien:  “God has allowed humans to progress in science and technology.  Homosexuality is in the animal kingdom.  Why are some Christians persecuting gays?”

Answer:  “Well, a human wrote down his thoughts on homosexuality 3,500 years ago.  The Book is called Leviticus.  Homosexuality is called an abomination.  There are other abominations, but Christians keep them.  Such as not stoning a non-virgin on her wedding night, wearing two fabrics on one body, sleeping with a menstruating woman.  Later this man would have started a fire with rubbing two flints together, and after his meal would retire to a cave or tent.  He probably would have had two or more wives and even concubines.  He had no concept of homosexuality accept that it could stop men from having sons necessary for any tribe’s survival.

Alien

Alien:   “Has there been no scientific/medical statements on homosexuality?”

Answer:  “Yes.  In March 2016, psychiatrists from 182 nations wrote a declaration.   It came from the World Psychiatric Association.  It was written to all the nations at the United Nations and sent to world leaders.  It stated clearly that homosexuality cannot be changed.  If it cannot be changed, it is NOT a choice.

Alien:  “Do ALL Christians deny this scientific knowledge?   Do they still claim the lack of knowledge about homosexuals from 3,500 years ago?”  Is there an agenda – money?

Answer:  “No.  Thankfully, the majority of Christians realise that the writer of Leviticus had no knowledge of heart transplants, television, radio, x-rays, planes, chemotherapy or even the fact that man could land on the moon.  It is just fundamentalists that have a vision of God as a fearful entity whose wrath will damn people into eternal fire.  Like Jesus, I dare to say, “Abba,” which Jesus used.  “Abba” does not translate as “father” but rather ‘daddy.”   Jesus used “Abba” to show the love relationship between God and his children.  As for the agenda, most African rights-wing pastors are supported by American evangelicals – money is certainly part of the picture.

Alien:  “Can I read this dialogue between Pastor Fred and yourself.?
Answer:   My pleasure.

F = Fred.   Written in red.

P = Paula.   Answered in black.

—————————————————————————————————————————————–

In reply to Fred Barungi.

Hello here are your words, Pastor Fred, and here is my answers as a Christian.  Peace of Christ to you.
F.I have a serious problem with you, sorry to say so. the scripture i quoted was talking about unnatural relations.
P.I have a problem with people like you that use the Bible to ‘stone’ others. John 1: God is love. All the Gospels: “Love one another.” it does not say pick and choose who to love.
F. The scripture i quoted was talking about unnatural relations.
P. When Paul speaks about ‘unnatural relations” in his letters, he is admonishing new Christians to stay away from pagan Temple orgies. The goddess would bless the ‘more the merrier’ indulges in sex – which is lust and no way resembles love or commitment to another human. Since the participants in these orgies would be 99 per cent straight – if they went with a same sex person – that would be ‘unnatural’ to their born natures.


F. The very first reason God created sex was to fulfill his purpose of producing and filling the world.(post creation). Post creation goes with intercourse between man and woman, not woman and woman or man and man. Secondly was enjoyment or pleasure between male and female. you have decided to exchange unnatural relations for the natural ones, this is a warning that you may bring judgement upon yourself and the next generations after you just like it was in Sodom and Gomorrah.
P. I do not follow a hateful God like you. I was created by God as a homosexual. I love my God and He/She delights in me. Naturally, we need to have straight couples to bring new persons into the world. My parents were straight. I agree that sexual acts are enjoyable. However, you miss the point of BONDING. Straights and gays do not have sex 24/7. What fills the life of solid loving relationships is the ‘ordinary’ ways that couples bond: shopping, planning holidays, a hug when things have gone wrong, commitment and sharing a life of values. Yes, we have morals and values – only you refer to writing that was written 3,500 years ago when making a fire was done with rubbing two sticks together. God has given humans new ideas and inventions – cures for cancer, open heart surgery, flying in planes and psychiatrists who state clearly that homosexuality cannot be changed and is therefore NOT a choice.


I suggest you read the Book of Daniel regarding Sodom and Gomorrah, where he states the cities were destroyed because the people were not helping the poor, supporting widows and were haughty in their ungodliness. And here is another article about S & G , A version of this story also appears in Judges (book 19). In both, sexual assault highlights the “wickedness” so often mis-attributed to homosexuality (47). In the Judges version, there is no mention (or hint) of homosexuality, further supporting the idea that the lesson was so important it bore repeating: meanness, cruelty, abuse, and hard-heartedness (all couched in inhospitality) are the true sins here; therefore, the story should not be used to support anti-gay rhetoric (47).


F. The UN you are trying to talk about has an agenda of destroying morals beginning from grass-root(children) and the later to the adults.
I do condemn having multiple sexual partners like the trump issue you spoke about, homosexuality too i do condemn it.
P. Sorry, Fred but the U.N was set up to support human rights (amongst other things). Thanks to the import of “Christianity” and its usage of a 3,500 year old text, homosexuals are imprisoned, beaten and murdered. This is not the way of Jesus. Just take out “Samaritan” and substitute “Gays” to learn what Jesus had to say to the lawyer about judging someone (Samaritan) as unclean, ungodly, etc. And may I remind you, that two religious leaders (with the ability to quote scripture walked by the injured man). Jesus in the Parable is saying that He will judge the heart. And you, Fred, have no right to judge the hearts of anyone on this planet. We have a judicial system for arresting incest perpetrators and pedophiles. Homosexuality is not a crime. It has been around since the Dawn of civilisation and in every country. May I inform you that Sally Ride was a lesbian who commanded a NASA space shuttle. NASA did not cast her out because of her sexual orientation.

Sally Ride

Sally Ride was in a 27 year relationship with Tammy O’Shaughnessy, a professor

F. The bible says that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ. Therefore GET SAVED OR ELSE YOU MAY DIE IN THAT SIN OF HOMOSEXUALITY. Let me give you an assurance that the god you are pledging allegiance to is an evil one-THE DEVIL.


P. St. Paul says the “wages of sin” is death – but, God can only judge the ‘sin.’ I knew when I was about 9 years old that I was attracted to women. I didn’t have a name for it. And in Genesis, God states that man (humans) should not be alone. Would you have me lock myself up in my room and never enjoy a kiss. hug and the feel of my loved one’s body beside me? You have no right to judge me or anyone else. Jesus warned, “Judge NOT or you will be judged!” I do not have a sin of homosexuality, I live my life in loving God, neighbour and loving myself. Jesus said you cannot serve two masters, You have set yourself up as Judge in defiance of the words of Jesus. Therefore, Fred, if you are not following Jesus – then you must be following the Angel of Death/Hate – Satan.

Finally, I would ask the alien to rule on the Dr. Laura Letter

In her radio show, Dr. Laura Schlesinger (a popular conservative radio talk show host in the USA) said that homosexuality is an abomination according to the Bible Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, and was attributed to a James M. Kauffman, Ed. D.

Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination… end of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God’s Laws and how to follow them.

  1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?
  1. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
  1. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual unseemliness – Lev. 15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.
  1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev. 1:9. The problem is my neighbours. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
  1. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
  1. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination – Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this? Are there ‘degrees’ of abomination?

 

  1. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
  1. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
  1. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

 

  1. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev. 24:10-16. Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.

Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.

Your adoring fan,

Paula here.  I’ve a big fan of OITNB.

Now, “Orange is he New Black” is going into season number five.  It is extremely popular dealing with women in an American prison.  I have been blogging for four years and I have several articles on Ruby Rose, the gorgeous young Australian who has been a model, deejay and actress for several years.

I think lesbian ovaries were throbbing when Ruby Rose made a first appearance in season three. She was absent in season four.  There are many fingers-crossed that Ruby Rose will be in full lesbian flair throughout the seaons – and maybe, beyond.  Ruby Rose in her role as Stella Carlin is the new love interest of Piper Chapman.

Paula here.  When I read that the infamous Alex Jones and his InfoWars was being sued by Greek yoghurt giant Chobani, I took a keen personal notice.  Alex Jones is a blatant racist and the owner of Chobani yoghurt is a Muslim.

Trish and I housesat for the manager of Chobani outside of the USA.  

Read the article from Joemygod and then I’ll add my own comments. Article in blue.

Greek yogurt giant Chobani filed a lawsuit Monday against right-wing radio host Alex Jones, accusing the conspiracy theorist of publishing false information about the company. Chobani says that Jones and his InfoWars website posted fabricated stories earlier this month that linked Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya and the company to a sexual assault case involving refugee children. The company filed the lawsuit in Idaho District Court in Twin Falls, where it operates the largest yogurt plant in the world.

The complaint says InfoWars released a video on April 11 describing Chobani’s practice of hiring refugees and a sexual assault case that did not involve the yogurt company. During the video, an Info Wars reporter republished statements that claimed the Chobani plant brought crime and tuberculosis since it opened the plant five years ago while also pointing out previous reports of its willingness to hire refugees in Twin Falls.

The video was promoted using the headline “Idaho Yogurt Maker Caught Important Migrant Rapists,” even though the lawsuit points out that InfoWars didn’t mention or prove that statement in the report. The story was tweeted out by Jones and other outlets. The 2016 assault sparked months of turmoil in Twin Falls after the story about the incident was spun by far-right blogs and anti-immigration groups into accounts that exaggerated and falsified many of the details.

Paula again.   When we were house/pet sitting (outside the USA), we were having dinner with the manager of Chobani and his wife.  The discussion came around to an important meeting that the manager would have the following morning with his Chobani staff.  He was wondering how to tell them that Hamdi Ulukaya (the owner of Chobani) had asked him to announce that the workers were getting “free” stock for years of working service.  Both the manager and his wife have met Mr. Ulukaya and have praised him as the greatest employer on earth and a fantastic human being.  It should be noted that Mr. Ulukaya signed a pledge with Warren Buffet and Bill Gates to eventually give his money away to charities.

My suggestion to you reading this – buy Chobani or research the company.

This is not the first time that Ulukaya has tried to do right by his employees and those who have less. He’s been a vocal supporter of a higher minimum wage and has hired hundreds of refugees fleeing countries ravaged by terror. He’s also signed the Giving Pledge, created by Warren Buffet and Bill and Melinda Gates to encourage billionaires to give away much of their wealth.

How About These Weird Records?

Just for a break in blogging about women, I’m including a blog from my children’s site http://childrenandteensstoriestoinspireandmotivate.com       Do me a favour, please.   Would you inform women with kids about this site.  Thank you.      I blog daily for kids.  I work hard to bring intelligent and interesting information for young people.I also have great children’s ebooks information on this site.

Most Balloons Blown Up by the Nose

Andrew Dahl

How to Qualify.

People have set a time of three minutes for this unusual record.  The idea is to blow up balloons with your nose.  The winner so far is American Andrew Dahl, “inflated 23 balloons using only his nose in three minutes” on March 18, 2010. And, yes, there’s a photo of Mr. Dahl, blowing up a balloon with his nose.

Some Records Come Naturally

Boo Boo didn’t have to work hard to get a record.  She is a long-haired female Chihuahua who became the world’s smallest dog at 4 inches tall.

A Human Qualifies Naturally

Zhao Liang is a 27 year old Chinese man.  He is about 8 feet 1 inch tall.  He weighs 341 pounds.   He is so tall that when he holds up pants/trousers to put on, they are the same height as his 5 foot 6 inch mother.

Paula here.

I wanted to immediately point out that this bully-attack  amounted to  almost two men beating one woman.  Here is the gang mentality that unleashes anger, inferiority complexes and a hatred of lesbians.  The women were used as punching bags.

Portsmouth, England.

The eight lesbian friends left the Blue Anchor pub in Portsmouth and a group of men started shouting homophobic abuse. The exact details of how the attack started are unclear, but five of the women sustained injuries.Thugs punched one woman so hard, seven of her front teeth fell out, resulting in a fractured jaw.

Bystanders stated that one  woman was cornered by seven men, pummelling her in the chest. It was so unfortunate that other women and children were standing by as this despicable incident happened.  Although bystanders yelled for the thugs to stop – they ignored them.

The sister of one of the victim’s said: ‘The men had got off the girls but they were still hitting the older woman, I’d say at least 20 or 30 times.‘I was begging them to stop.‘It wasn’t until they heard the sirens that they threw her and ran off,

Police are investigating.

Szenja  dies of a broken heart

Paula here.   Reading this story devastated me!

Imagine if you were in a same-sex relationship- call it bonding, call it friendship,  for 20 years.  Every day, you cherish being with that person and trust that person.  It’s called love.  Now imagine that some authority shipped off your mate!  This happened to two female polar bears who had played and loved one another in San Diego Seal World Wild Arctic exhibit.

It seems that being in a public exhibit for these two female polar bears is motivated by cash.  Szenja 21 and Snowflake 22 had never been apart.  They spent 20 years together until some money-grabbing and heartless person decided to separate them.  The motive was to get Snowflake to mate and the revenue rolls in – “Ah, what cute polar cubs.”  Most visitors will have no idea of the emotional cost these cubs cost two polar bear adults.

Szenja and Snowflake happy together

Shipping Snowflake from San Diego to Pittsburgh Zoo

I cannot image the anguish of these two when attempts were made to separate them.  My mind is travelling with Snowflake in a cage and travelling by road or air.  I can image the anguish of Szenja alone in the water – looking frantically around for her mate.

Dying of a Broken Heart

Happy together

Thousands of people had signed a petition to keep the two together. Tracy Remain, PETA – People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (executive vice president, told NBC: After losing her companion of 20 years when SeaWorld shipped Snowflake to the Pittsburgh Zoo in order to breed more miserable polar bears, Szenja did what anyone would do when they lose all hope, she gave up.”  Tracy continued, ” This should be a wake-up call to SeaWorld: Stop breeding and shipping animals around, close the animal exhibits, and retire the animals to sanctuaries.  “Until it does, this ship will keep sinking.” 

My final thoughts.  Now, my thoughts turn to Snowflake.  I hope she gives birth and can find love again in her cubs.  I hope this sends a strong message to zoos.  Animals bond and love.

The staff of the Dutch mission at the United Nations in New York also joined in

The staff of the Dutch mission at the United Nations in New York also joined in holding hands

Straight Dutch politicians are sending a message to homophobes in their country and throughout the world.   A couple of weeks ago, a gay couple Jasper Vernes-Sewratan and Ronnie Sewratan-Vernes were set upon by a group of thugs just because they were seen holding hands.  This happened in the city of Arnhem.  The couple was hospitalised.  Amongst the attackers was a 14 year old boy.

 

Holland was the first country to recognise same-sex marriage.  Having suffered through Nazi oppression, the Dutch have been displayed incredible tolerance and equality for its citizens.
 Following the shocking violent incident, politicians in the country are showing solidarity by holding hands in public.

Lodewijk Asscher, the country’s Deputy Prime Minister and leader of the Labor Party made a stand as part of the campaign, posting a photo to Twitter.

Alexander Pechtold, leader of the Democrats 66 party, also joined in, posting a photo to Twitter in which he is holding hadns with party member Wouter Koolmees.

The leader wrote: “Stop violence against gay people. #allemannenhandinhand”

The staff of the Dutch mission at the United Nations in New York also joined in, with men holding hands on the way to a protest against homophobia.

Police officers in the country also got in on the movement.

The King of the Netherlands recently made a historic visit to a Dutch LGBTI rights group.

King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, who ascended to the throne in 2013, met with activists from COC Netherlands, a Dutch advocacy group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

The visit, thought to be the first time the acting monarch has made a visit to an LGBT group, came as COC celebrated its 70th anniversary.

His wife, Queen Máxima  has also attended LGBT rights conferences in the past.The Netherlands has long been a progressive beacon, becoming the first country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage in 2001.

Caressida Dick, first female Commissioner

Paula here.   I’ve always said that I love women in uniforms.  I’ve worn them – school, Girl Guides and Captain in GGs.  However, it has taken 188 years from when the London police force was established in 1819 to find a woman to head it as new Commissioner.

Well, I suppose there are actually two causes for celebration – Cressida Dick becomes the first female Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police and===the second celebration is that she is married to a woman.  Cresisda’s wife is also a team inspector of the police force.

Cressida was appointed by the Queen on the recommendation nation of Home Secretary Amber Rudd.  It is worth noting that Cressida holds the Queen’s Police Medal for distinguished service.  In the 2015, New Years Honours, the Queen appointed Cressida as Commander of the Order of the British Empire.  This is the third highest rank a person can hold below the two ranks of knighthood/damehood.

Here is an earlier blog I wrote that ties in with this article.

 

Mary Allen is second from the right. Margaret Damer Dawson is in the centre.

Mary Allen is second from the right. Margaret Damer Dawson is in the centre.

Mary Sophia Allen (1878-1964) and Margaret Mary Damer Dawson (1873-1920) were both born into rich families in England. They lived together as secret lesbian lovers during the First World War (1914).

 The Women’s Police Force

The Women’s Police Service was founded in 1914 by Nina Boyle* and Margaret Damer Dawson.

An aside About Nina Boyle:

(Nina never married.  Was she a lesbian too?After the Russian Revolution, Nina travelled in Russia with fellow Suffragette, Lilian Lenton,  an experience which would make her a lifelong anti-Communist. Lilian Lenton died in 1972. She never married). O.K I’m betting that Nina and Lilian were lesbians, too).

The Women’s Police Force was staffed by Volunteers. At this time, the U.K’s eligible men were fighting overseas. Women did not have the vote and the Suffragettes were marching, being imprisoned and force-fed in their fight for equality. She joined the Women’s Political and Social Union (WSPU)

Mary Sophia Allen Joins the Police Force

Mary met Damer Dawson in 1914. They were both lesbians and interested in women’s rights. Mary had a long history of suffragette involving including imprisonment and forced-feeding. In 1915 when The WPS was going strong, Margaret Damer Dawson became Commandant and Allen became Sub-Commadant.

Butch Dress Code.

Allen wore a miltary frock coat that was dark blue and fell below the knees. Under that were breeches and riding boots. For lesbians who loved uniforms, joining the women’s police force enabled them to serve their country and establish that women could do the same job as men. It also afforded lesbians the opportunity to cross-dress with impunity. The fact that Allen was a lesbian is recorded in her journal. She claimed that the authorites were against her because she was an introvert (term used then for a lesbian).

Dawson and Allen

Dawson and Allen

The Death of Damer Dawson.

When Damer Dawson died in 1920, at the early age of 47 years, her leadership was taken over by Mary Allen. Dawson left her house and most of her money to Allen.

Mary Allen Last Days

Mary aligned her political views with right-wing Facism.  After meeting Hitler in 1934 she became a fervent admirer, Nazi sympathiser, and took to wearing jack-boots. Allen was an active supporter of General Francisco Franco and his Nationalist Army during the Spanish Civil War. As World War II became evident, Mary was asked to leave the police force. There was a movement to intern her in 1940, a year after World War II began. Perhaps, because she had received the OBE with her lover, Damer Dawson, these plans fell through.

Mary Allen, who wrote several books, including The Pioneer Policewoman (1925), Woman at the Crossroads(1934) and Lady in Blue (1936), died in the Birdhurst Nursing Home, 4 Birdhurst Road, Croydon, of cerebral thrombosis and cerebral arteriosclerosis on 16th December 1964. (aged 86)

This Australian politician is opposed to same-sex marriage as he thinks gay people can ‘turn’ straight

Twitter users mock senator for discovering bisexuality exists

This Australian politician is opposed to same-sex marriage as he thinks gay people can 'turn' straight
Eric Abetz claims gay people can ‘turn’ straight

An Australian politician is voting against same-sex marriage because he thinks gay people can ‘turn’ straight.

Eric Abetz, a Tasmanian senator, has claimed there is ‘evidence’ that people who identify as gay could end up dating the opposite gender.

He has condemned the media for not providing a ‘more balanced’ report on sexuality and same-sex marriage.

‘So do you personally believe that gays and lesbians can pull up their bootstraps and show a bit of discipline and become heterosexuals, do you actually think they can stop being who they are?’ Sky News’ Samantha Maiden asked

Senator Abetz replied: ‘The evidence that has been given to Senate committees where people who have been in gay relationships have then gone into heterosexual relationships’.

Abetz trended on Twitter, with many users condemning his homophobia and mocking him for ‘discovering bisexuality’.

Lauren Ingram wrote: ‘Hey @SenatorAbetz, there’s a word for ‘gay people in heterosexual relationships’… (hint: they’re called bisexuals).’

‘It seems Eric Abetz has just discovered bisexuality exists,’ another person wrote.

Alan Vertue added: ‘What a relic. Abetz should be preserved in formaldehyde and displayed in a museum alongside dinosaurs.’

Another joked: ‘There is evidence intelligent people can become morons if they listen to Tasmanian Senator Abetz for more than 20 minutes.’

Mr Abetz defended himself in a statement posted on his website, saying: ‘News reports that I have suggested gay people can become straight “if they try hard enough” are not just another example of fake news but are also completely dishonest.’

The senator has also slammed businesses who have supported marriage equality, like Qantas, ANZ and Foxtel.

‘It is their right should they wish to engage in these campaigns … but the consumers of Australia should be under no misapprehension these campaigns cost money, and therefore the cost is ultimately borne from consumers,’ he added. 

 My Response – Based on Science

In March 2016, the World Psychiatric Association (consisting of 182 countries) penned a letter to the United Nations and world leaders.  In this document, the WPA of world psychiatrists stated that ‘homosexuality CANNOT be changed and is therefore NOT a choice.’  These protestors are basing their narrow judgments on the Biblical Book of Leviticus where homosexuality is stated as an abomination.   However, there are other abominations in this book that Christians clearly ignore:  a) adultery  b) divorce  c) lying   d) cheating in money matters   e) eating pork, shrimp   f) stoning a bride found not to be a virgin on her wedding night, etc. etc.   Christians do not get to pick and choose abominations.  However, it is not logical to quote Leviticus written 3,500 years ago when starting a fire was done with rubbing two sticks or flints together.  After the meal, these people would retire to a cave or tent.   Should they wish to quote Genesis and the destruction of Sodom and Gormorrah, then they should also read the book of Daniel.  He states these cities were destroyed because the people did not feed the poor, care for widows and showed no hospitality to strangers.  If they are quoting Paul, they have to know that Paul was referring to Temple Prostitution, where Greeks and Romans were following pagan sexual orgies.  When he refers to women going against their “true nature” and having sex with other women, we must remember that the majority of these women would have been heterosexual.  In this case, they were going against their true born nature of heterosexuality.  Remember these were orgies where it did not matter what sex the other person was – it was just a sexual orgy.    Christians need to understand the historical context behind the Scriptures.  What we do know to be clear and that is how to get to heaven.  Jesus told the lawyer in the Parable of the Good Samaritan.  To get to heaven, you must love God, love neighbour and love self.   Jesus also told us not to judge.

Below, is a blog taken from my children’s site http://childrenandteensstoriestoinspireandmotivate.com.  If you can pass on this link I would appreciate it.  The children’s blog starts after the title “Australian Aboriginal Art-Awesome.”

This is our fourth visit to Australia.  We close up our home for the cold Canadian winters.  The heating costs we save pays for our airfares.  No money is exchanged.  Most people leave food for you to use and often a car is thrown in.  On most housesitting sites a police clearance document plus personal references are required.   We have seen a number of wonderful Aboriginal art works that are a result of our housesitting.   Enjoy the children’s article below.

Australian Aboriginal Art – Awesome

Many people think that the Aborigines came to Australia about 60,000 years ago.  Many lived in desert like places and they made their art on caves, trees and on the sand.

It is beautiful.   Here are some examples from the Aboriginal Museum in Adelaide, Australia.  Other examples are from various places in Australia.

  

Like so many indigenous cultures, tribal elders are seeking exciting ways to keep their language and cultural traditions alive.  It was only in the 1970s that Aborigines were allowed to vote.

Dubai Court of Appeals

Sharia Law has NOT changed in the Muslim country of Dubai since a 2008 jail sentence was carried out against two lesbians found kissing on a local public beach.  While the two women appealed, their case was rejected.  The women, a 30 year old Lebanese nationa,l and a 36 year old Bulgarian both pleaded NOT guilty.  Nevertheless, both women spent one month in jail.

The Period Awaiting Trial

The lesbian couple were found guilty in April, 2008 and the appeal court ruled in September.  The time between April and September is five months.  Then, they spent a month in jail.  The public display of intimacy cost the couple six months.

The Charge

 

The Dubai Public Prosecution charged the women with kissing, groping each other and indecent acts in public – the first case of its kind in the country.

Be careful.  Be discreet.  Be aware of customs and laws.

House and Pet Sitting has enabled us to travel to Europe (Holland, Spain, France, Switzerland), Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti.  Our house and pet sit was located in Cambridge within an hour’s drive of these incredible gardens.    

Hamilton Gardens, N.Z

Hamilton Gardens is more than a botanical garden, it more like a historical walk back into time.

Located next to Waikato River, this beautiful garden offers several  themes; Chinese, Indian, Italian, Tudor, Japanese and a traditional Maori ( pre-European) garden.  A brochure and display boards offer an explanation behind many of the creations.

The Chinese Garden

The Chinese garden is laid out in a Tao theme of ying-yang (dark/light, soft/hard, sky/land, water/air).  This was the scholar’s garden where poetry was written.

This is the Chinese scholar’s garden; a place to meditate, write poetry or to read philosophical works.  Chinese gardening is one of the world’s oldest arts that is filled with imagination, fantasy and surprise. The Chinese garden is laid out in a Tao theme of ying-yang (dark/light, soft/hard, sky/land, water/air).   Turn a corner and the ring-yang theme provides a visual delight.  Bright red colours embrace the opening door and the  Ting Pavilion.  Water, part of the ring-yang theme allows the visitor to cross the Wisteria Bridge to the island for Whispering Birds.   Such beauty allowed for painting as well.,

There is obvious beauty in the flowers, trees, shrubs and water, but there is symbolism and art work that provide a history to legends.  All around are references to the Chinese philosophy of  Confucianism with its emphasise on order.

I must admit that, if time had permitted, I would have been happy to just sit and take in all the beauty and tranquility around me.

It has been a wonderful opportunity for Trish and myself to house and pet sit in New Zealand.  We have done this for three years on separate occasions.  There is so much I need to learn about the Maori culture and in writing this blog, I hope I have some things right.  My heart is very close to this culture – perhaps, I’ve been a Maori in past lives.  Everyone looks at different cultures and sees beauty, but when I see a Maori person – man or woman, I feel something akin to bonding.

Māori Women Recognized on this Post.

New Zealand was the first country to give women the vote.  I have personally found that unless a person reads a published book on Maori women, there is very little on the internet. (Perhaps, I am looking at the wrong sites).  What I have found, and remember that it is limited research, is a very strong history of powerful Maori women.  They have ruled as queens and warriors and are held in high regard by males.  (That has been the past history and I have no reason to doubt that this is still part of their cultural inheritance).

Goddess of Death

male hero Māui

Behind Every Maori Male…..

Even heroes, such as the male Māui had a grandmother (Murirangawhenua), who provided him with her jaw bone to fish and slow down the sun.

The goddess of death crushes Māui to death between her legs.  This emphasises the power of a woman’s genitilia is not lost on males!

The Power of Childbirth

As in many cultures, males are in awe of the gift of childbirth.   The awe can be downright fear!  There are, of course, many Maori stories of creation, etc., but I am dealing with the one that I found in my limited research.  Māori women are called te whare tangata (the house/cradle of humanity).  They are protected by

Papatūānuku the earth mother

Papatūānuku the earth mother creator

and creator of all living things. The Māori word for placenta is “whenua” which is the same word for earth. 

 

Māoris bury the afterbirth signifying that women’s power is tied to the land that supports all life.  We all come from the earth and return to it.  This, of course, is a universal thought pattern.

Women in Earth’s Elements

Again, depending on Maori myths, female deities are seen in thunder (Whaitiri) and in fire (Mahuika).  The fire goddess is portrayed as having fire come out of her fingers.

Another Maori Creation Myth
There is a nice ‘division of labour’ and power in another Maori creation myth.  Rangi is the sky god and father of all things and his wife is Papa, the goddess of the earth and mother of all things.

 
I will research further about this wonderful culture.  Do visit the “Land of the Long White Cloud” as Maori refer to N.Z

I am amazed and shocked how people like Judge Roy Moore and his wife, Kayla, do NOT understand the Bible.  Here is a woman who is President of a hate group.

Her husband is the hateful Judge Roy Moore who was removed by the Law Society for not enforcing the Supreme Court’s decision on marriage equality.  These two (amongst so many others) have the nerve to quote the Bible and “cast stones” against their fellow humans.  What don’t they understand about these words of Jesus, “Judge NOT, or you will be Judged.”  And the key message from the Parable of the Good Samaritan is that you don’t get to pick which neighbour to love.

All the Hate Because a Lesbian is Promoted in the Military.

First and foremost, congratulations to Col. Kristin Goodwin on her promotion.  I just love a woman in uniform. LOL.

I salute you on your promotion and on your marriage.

   I am Having This On-Going Debate

I have an African preacher who replies to my blogs and tells me that “I am unnatural as a lesbian.”  He is quoting Paul’s letter to the Corinthians.  Paul is asking new Christians to stay away from pagan temple orgies- all forms of sex, which is lust.  Paul speaks of the women of having “unnatural relations with other women.”  I try to point out to this preacher that on any given orgy day, the women gathering would probably be 99% straight.  So, it probably would be against their nature or preference but done for blessings of the goddess.

Let’s Look at Paul Again in Corithians.

This is a much quoted passage that is used at many weddings.  I would ask Judge Roy and his wife to look at what Paul speaks of as love.  Remember that John 1 states, “God is love.”   Look particularly at this line:

 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others,

 

Corinthians 13New International Version (NIV)

13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poorand give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

As a footnote:  This will be the comeback of the Moore’s.

  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Because a person does not delight in evil, there is no reason to hate and demean that person.  If incest or pedophilia has been committed that is a crime – as is murder, thieving etc.  The law takes care of that.  However, homosexuality is not against the law of most civilised societies.  The Moore’s need to go back 3,500 years ago to Leviticus or misquote Paul.  As in the case of the “ungodly” and “unclean” Samaritan,  Jesus clearly is telling the lawyer not to judge.  He also tells the lawyer how to get to heaven: Love God, Love Neighbour and love self.
BREAKING NEWS TO SHUT UP THE MOORES

HUGE. The Associated Press reports:

A federal appeals court in Chicago on Tuesday ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act also protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination, the first time a federal appellate court has come to that conclusion. The decision by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes after it threw out a July finding by three of its own judges that the law doesn’t cover sexual-orientation bias and ordered a rare rehearing by the full court, a rare session known as an en banc hearing.

THIS LETTER FROM MRS. MOORE IS CERTAINLY AGAINST THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT.

Tenth Cativersary

Ten years ago this week I brought Shelley (formerly “Little Gray”) home from the East Harlem ASPCA. She was 20 months old, very underweight, timid, and FIV+, the last of which might explain the “owner surrender” notation on her adoption papers. Shelley was so freaked out upon arrival in my apartment that she first tried to escape by climbing up the chimney, then spent the next three days cowering under the sofa.

Today she’s a healthy eleven pounds, the friendliest cat I’ve ever worked for, and spends her days standing guard in case the elderly German shepherd across the alley learns how to climb the fire escape. As I like to do on this date, I encourage you to visit your local shelter and consider adopting an adult cat. At this writing there are about a dozen adult cats up for adoption at the East Harlem shelter. I quite like the intense Bevis.

The Ivanka Trump Brand’s Supply Chain Is Seemingly Untraceable

Non-profit consumer education organization Project Just looked into the controversial brand and found… nothing.

On Thursday, non-profit consumer education organization Project Just published a deep-dive investigation into the Ivanka Trump clothing line.

This wasn’t unusual. The company, which aims to make fashion a more sustainable, ethical, and transparent industry, is built largely on comprehensive investigations into the supply chains of different brands, the results of which it shares on its online wiki. Ivanka Trump was an obvious subject in light of boycotts led by GrabYourWallet, which may or may not have caused Nordstromand Neiman Marcus to back away from the line. Plus, community users had specifically requested the investigation. The reason it was unusual — enough to warrant a behind-the-scenes look at the investigation process itself — was that it found nothing.

With five researchers working in six countries over the course of a month, and despite contacting spokespeople, sales reps, and brand employees, Project Just discovered no code of ethics, no sustainability reports, no human rights policies. A shipping list pointed to factories in China and Indonesia, but no factories were at the addresses, and calls to the phone numbers listed went unanswered. The 12-employee business offers paid maternity leave to new mothers, but revealed no policies ensuring fair wages, safe working conditions, or health care to the women working at every other level of manufacturing — despite Ivanka Trump’s emphasis on empowering working women. Project Just uncovered no evidence that the brand (whose manufacturing and distribution is handled by licensing group G-III Apparel) knows anything that goes on within its own supply chain — or, at least, is willing to share what it knows.

So what does this mean? We got on the phone with Project Just cofounder Natalie Grillon and head of research Jacinta FitzGerald to talk about how far the Project Just team went to find out what little they could, why consumers are more likely to be blindly trusting of celebrity lines, and just how common such a lack of transparency is. Here’s what they had to say.

Let’s start with a little background about Project Just. Who are you guys, and what do you do?

Natalie Grillon: We’re an online community dedicated to helping shoppers change the way that they shop for fashion. We have an online wiki that has sustainability and ethics research on over 100 brands, which is updated consistently. Then we have a seal of approval, which we give to the best brands in the industry for their supply chain practices. We complement that work with features related to ethical and sustainable fashion — everything from city guides to style files, and then in some cases, we go in-depth on the investigation process, like we did with this one, and share that information with the community through a few more channels apart from the wiki.

Jacinta, you were heading up the research on this project. Can you tell me more about what your investigators were doing?

Jacinta FitzGerald: Ours is a global team, which is one of the great things about working at Project Just. I’m in New Zealand; we have members of the research team in Canada, Indonesia, India, and obviously in the US as well. We had a little bit of input from a journalist who was in China at the time. We had people on the ground in a lot of places, looking into different aspects of the supply chain and trying to find out anything we could, because the more we looked, the less we could find. Usually when we research a brand, we have one person looking into everything the brand reports on itself — and in this case, because it’s a licensed brand, also what the supplier companies report on — and then we have another person looking into all the third-party industry organizations that might have done any reporting or investigation into the brand.

For this particular brand, because we couldn’t really find anything, we went in a little bit deeper. Using shipping databases, we were able to track down factories in both China and Indonesia that reportedly shipped Ivanka Trump-branded products to the United States, but we couldn’t get beyond that. Our researcher in Indonesia tried at length to contact one of the factories there and couldn’t get through; none of the calls to telephone numbers listed for the factory were answered. The factory wasn’t at the address listed for it, but the factory was still operating. Everything was quite murky.

NG: Also a bit disconcerting that a factory is listed but it’s not at the location that it says it is, and the phone lines aren’t picked up.

How unusual is this, to investigate a brand and just come up with nothing?

JF: It’s a little unusual. It’s becoming more common now for brands to be more transparent, even in their intentions, so you’ll find fast fashion brands talking about how they’re aware people want to know a bit more, that they’re putting policies in place, trying to make improvements. With big brands that have been quite untransparent in the past, we’re seeing them starting to become more transparent and change some of their practices. We were really quite surprised that we could find absolutely nothing about a brand or a supplier company that operates at this scale.

Having said that, there still are a number of quite large brands, particularly US-based brands, that we’ve researched and found no information. Lucky Jeans comes to mind.

NG: Forever 21 and Abercrombie are others which, based on the last time we checked their websites, all pretty recently, have no information available. But then you look at brands like H&M and Gap, who are now publishing their first-tier supplier lists, and I think that that’s starting to become best practice.

Ivanka Trump’s line is licensed to G-III Apparel, which does the manufacturing. How come we can’t just transpose their policies to Ivanka Trump’s brand?

NG: We looked into G-III in addition to the Ivanka Trump brand itself. In the case of a lot of celebrity brands — like Ivanka Trump, Beyoncé’s line, Melissa McCarthy’s line — they’re manufactured by a holding company. There are actually many of these giant holding companies that handle manufacturing and distribution for a variety of different brands. In some cases they handle design, in some cases they don’t. Kate Spade does this, as do some other major names that people would know. It’s very common. It’s very uncommon to find a vertically integrated brand that actually does all its manufacturing and design.

But in this case, because Ivanka’s name is on the clothes — much like Beyoncé’s line, much like the other celebrity lines — we think that, for the consumer, it adds an additional level of trust but also opaqueness. The assumption is made that, well, because it carries her name, it must be vetted by her, it must be designed by her, she must be watching over it very closely, when in actuality it’s quite the opposite. With celebrity brands, the celebrity might handle design or give a thumbs-up on certain elements, but in most cases they have not visited the factories, and they have no real relationship with the manufacturer on the ground. They do their dealings through these larger holding companies. It allows for an additional lack of accountability on the part of those brands.

Especially when, in the case of Ivanka Trump’s #womenwhowork motto, the brand offers a surface-level sense of empowerment that consumers might assume is part of the company’s philosophy. But you’ve found no evidence of that traveling through every level of the supply chain.

NG: None whatsoever.

JF: Not at all.

NG: That is, as an almost all-female team, something that’s really frustrating for us — that a brand speaks of empowering women and championing women who work, when women who work in the garment supply chain are in fact most likely working more hours than any of us, and under much harsher conditions, and are not being talked about, period, never mind championed.

You mentioned, at least, that the Ivanka Trump brand offers paid maternity leave to its employees. What is the kind of thing Ivanka Trump, or her brand, would have to do to ensure that every woman involved in the manufacturing of her line was being treated well?

JF: I would say one of the most important things would be for her brand to implement some policies around the practices that they will tolerate — so, for example, implementing a vender code of conduct, which they would require all of their vendors to sign. They would have full license to put in there whatever they want, so they can ensure that their workers have good conditions, are paid a reasonable rate, they could have maternity leave if that’s something she wants to champion. The brand can set out any conditions of trade they want, and then ensure that the suppliers follow those conditions themselves, and then pass those on to the second and third and fourth tier suppliers down the chain. It comes from the top. There needs to be some policies put in place for what the brand deems acceptable practice.

NG: Also, along with those policies, there’s setting up incentive structures, and making sure that you’re aligning long-term contracts with the factories so they know that investing in policies like maternity leave, and maybe childcare and healthcare onsite at the factory, is worth it. They know the brand will continue to honor their commitment. Obviously audits are standard practice in factories, but those have failed to catch a lot of abuses and problems in supply chains in the past. What’s being encouraged now is more open, transparent conversations, so that purchase orders done on a regular basis require sustainability and wage data. You also have some brands, like H&M, trying to negotiate to push collective bargaining in their factories, which is a huge step and really impressive, because then the power is in the workers’ hands.

It’s worth noting, too, that though the lack of evidence for ethical working conditions is especially striking because working women is such a part of Ivanka’s personal brand, you also looked into, and found nothing about, the brand’s environmental impact, sustainability, and quality control. Can you talk a bit about the different arms of these investigations?

JF: To start with, we just look at the brand’s business model, in its size and structure. That’s fairly self-explanatory: how many employees they have, how many garments they make annually, etc. We look into how transparent the brand is, social practices and environmental practices, any intention the brand has of making improvements. We look at any innovations that the brand invests in, whether that be renewable energy or using sustainable fabrics. We try to give it a really holistic broad view of the entire operations of the business.

One aspect I’m curious about is the investigation of the product quality, which feels like something the consumer would be especially interested in. How do you dive into that?

NG: In this case, we went to several of the retailers, because, again, it was so difficult to find information. We were hoping to trace the clothing back through codes found on the garment tags, which sometimes reveal a bit more than what we were able to find here. While we were checking the tags, I also checked out the clothes, because I wasn’t very familiar with the brand. I’d never touched the clothes. I’d never tried them on before. I found at both Macy’s and Lord & Taylor that an Ivanka Trump dress retailing for $150 was falling apart in the midsection, where two of the seams came together right below the bust.

We don’t necessarily always put the quality of the clothes as the first thing we look at, because we often find that ethical and sustainable brands we highlight sell clothes that are made to last. They’re made to be durable, whereas typically, the fast fashion clothes we look at, priced in the $10, $20, $30 range are made in a more disposable way. They’re meant to be worn several times and then either donated or thrown away. Up until now, we didn’t find clothes at that sort of price point falling apart. I was surprised by that.

Would you draw any conclusions from that about the quality of the material, or the conditions of the factory it was made in?

NG: It could mean a lot of different things. This particular dress in Lord & Taylor had a belt on it, and in Macy’s it didn’t. The belt they attached may have been too heavy for the item as it was shipping, so it may have pulled apart, and that might be why. Again, that’s a huge miss on their part. It may have been, at this factory on this day, that quality control was really lacking. It could be that it was a factory rushing to get an order out to hit a deadline, which you see a lot. I can’t really draw a conclusion, but I can say that for a $150 dress, you shouldn’t be seeing the seams falling apart when nobody has even worn the thing yet.

You reached out to 21 people connected to the brand and got no responses. People who are reading this report, seeing no information offered by spokespeople or discoverable by your investigation, might assume that no information means bad information. Do you think that’s a fair assumption?

NG: I think it means that there’s a huge of risk of bad practices happening. Typically, if you’re not going to answer, it means you don’t have the information readily available, which means that you’re not communicating with your supply chain, which means that there are things going on that you don’t know about. They could be amazing things and they could be bad things, but I think that’s bad — if you are making clothing and you’re putting your name on it, you’re putting your brand on it, and you don’t know, can’t tell us, where it’s happening or what’s happening, I think that’s a bad sign.

And this investigation was over the course of the month, so people you contacted had ample time to respond to you.

NG: Yes, and we followed up as well.

I know that you mention in the beginning of the Medium piece that this is an objective investigation and you are a nonpartisan group, but since a lot of the issues you’re looking at — environmental sustainability, worker rights — are kind of at odds with the current administration, were you worried about this looking politically partisan?

NG: I’m not worried about it because we serve the consumer, and the consumer comes in every shape and size, every different political mindset, from all over the world, and I think that everyone would agree if you are paying for something, you have a right to know what you’re buying and if it is meeting your expectations. We try to empower the consumer with that information.

We reported on this brand in the same factual way that we would report on any brand, and you’ll see on the site that there are other brands listed where we have little to no information. We thought this was an opportunity to speak to celebrity lines in general, which are often based on this kind of a model, and the consumer often isn’t aware. I know it’s a very hot, controversial topic. I encourage people to engage with the information and read it and form their own opinions.

Do you see consumers in greater numbers acting with their money and putting pressure on companies and brands to be more transparent?

NG: Yeah, I think so. I say that knowing that I do this work day in and day out, so I’m trying to keep a perspective of a larger global marketplace, but I think when we look at the ethical fashion movement, the organic and fair trade food movements, all of these things are growing, and it’s been over the course of decades, so it’s not just a trend. Organic food is now sold in Walmarts. Starbucks has fair trade coffee. Zara and H&M both have conscious, sustainable lines. They see their consumer asking for it and they wouldn’t be doing it if they didn’t feel that the product was going to sell. This is something that people want. They want transparency from companies. They want to know what they’re buying. They don’t necessarily trust brand names anymore.

Have you gotten feedback on this investigation yet?

NG: We’ve had a few positive responses saying thank you, this is really comprehensive. We pride ourselves on being super thorough, so that’s good to hear. We’re going to keep doing investigations like this, and highlighting how we went about the process, so that people can engage with the information in a different way rather than just looking up the brand on the wiki. We’re excited to see what people think of it. We want that feedback.

MAKETU BEACH – Easter Saturday, April 15, 2017

Situated 30km east along the coast from Mount Maunganui, Maketu Beach is where Maori first came ashore on their waka voyage from Polynesia to the Bay of Plenty. That was over 800 years ago.  Each migration is named after the waka (canoe) of the commander.  One of these canoes, the Arawa waka, under the command of Maori named Tamatekapua landed in Maketu.  He spotted Okurei (later renamed ‘Town Point’ by Captain James Cook), jutting out into the bay.  It was a heavenly place covered in sand and fertile land that is now known as the Bay of Plenty.

 

Since that event there has been a continuous settlement of the Te Arawa people in this  village, followed by some of  the first Pakeha (non-Maori) settlers who arrived in New Zealand around 250 years ago.

Tranquility 
Today Maketu beach is a popular place to fish, kayak, and wind surf.  It is a quiet and tranquil place to unwind.  In the distance is Mount Maunangui which adds to the beauty of Maketu.  The beach is 3.5 km long and is one of the best preserved sand dune in the Bay of Plenty.
Nature Hikes

We have taken several hikes where we have photographed native plants such as harakehe (flax) and pingao (which Maori use for weaving baskets and cloaks.).  Native bird life is abundant.  The endangered New Zealand dotterel build their nests in the sand in early spring and summer.  We have spotted  kingfishers and white-faced herons and taken a break under the shade of colourful Pohutukawa trees

This is a wonderful place to enjoy a long Easter weekend.  Somewhere out there on the long sandy beach, some Easter bunnies have buried eggs.  We intend to find them!

 As happy house/pet sitters, we are celebrating Easter in a beautiful Kiwi seaside town.   Kiwis and Aussies are celebrating Easter as part of their autumn/fall season.  The daylight hours have been shortened and for Kiwis the weather is getting colder.  However, in Britain, Ireland, Europe and North America, the opposite takes place.  I know our Canadian friends are looking forward to seeing plants pop out on grounds that are not covered with snow.  For many, the summer is not too far ahead.

Easter Facts: Known and Unknown.

–It is said that Germany introduced the idea of candies/sweets and chocolate Easter eggs. Some people state that Germany was also the first country with the idea that the Easter Bunny gave out eggs.  For many Christians, giving eggs was a symbol of the resurrection of Jesus (new life) and in many countries eggs are died in different colours. The art of painting eggs is called pysanka,  and is said to have originated in Ukraine.

  • Eostre the Anglo Saxon Goddess:
  • She was the goddess of Spring and Rebirth and seems to have only been mentioned a few times in Anglo Saxon literature.  She was credited with ‘waking up the winter.”  The early church took over most pagan festivals and turned them into religious symbols and Christian events.
  • Hot-cross puns were originally pagan offerings.  Again, the Christian Church put a symbolic cross on them.
  • Her sacred animal was the hare which belongs to the rabbit family, so ‘chocolate’ bunnies is a natural progression.  Hares could be openly seen chasing across the countryside to find mating partners.  Adult humans also celebrating courtship with maypole dancing.
  • Tallest Easter Egg to date:  Made in Italy in 2011. It stood at 10.39 meters and weighed an astounding 7,200 kg.
  • Italy: Tallest Chocolate Easter Egg

  • Taking Chocolate Bunny Bites:  76%percent of people eat the ears first, 5% percent go for the feet,  and 4 % for the tail
  • Florida Biggest Hunt:  Florida holds the record for the largest ‘Easter Egg Hunt.  Around  9,753 children searched for 501,000 eggs

If you are not religious, Easter is a holiday from work.  Like Christmas, Easter is a fun time for kids.  May you have a wonderful Easter.

A man is driving along a highway and sees a rabbit jump out across
the middle of the road.
He swerves to avoid hitting it, but unfortunately the rabbit jumps
right in front of the car.
The driver, a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulls over and
gets out to see
what has become of the rabbit.
Much to his dismay, the rabbit is
the Easter Bunny, and he is  DEAD .
The driver feels so awful  that he begins to cry.
A beautiful blonde woman driving down the highway
sees a man crying on the side of the road
and pulls over.
She steps out of the car and asks the man
what’s wrong.
“I feel terrible,” ! he explains,
“I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny with my car and KILLED HIM.”
The blonde says,”Don’t worry.”
She runs to her car and pulls out a spray can.
She walks over to the limp, dead  Easter Bunny,
bends down, and sprays the contents onto him.
The Easter Bunny jumps up, waves its paw at thetwo of them and hops
off down the road.
Ten feet away he stops, turns around and waves again, he hops down the
road another 10 feet,
turns and waves, hops another ten feet,
turns and waves, and repeats this again and again and again and again,
until he hops out of sight.
The man is astonished.
He runs over to the woman and demands,
“What is in that can?
What did you spray on the Easter Bunny ?”
The woman turns the can around
so that the man can read the label.
It says..
(Are you ready for this?)
(You know you’re gonna be sorry)
(Last chance)
(OK, here it is)
It says,
“Hair Spray
Restores life to dead hair,
and adds permanent wave.”
Happy Easter!!   hey I don’t make these up , they’re sent to me so I send

Again , housesitting enabled Trish and myself to live nearby these incredible gardens.

The Italian Renaissance was an exciting period of history.  Artists, sculptures, philosophers, medical practitioners and writers drew ideas from many sources.  Likewise, Italian Renaissance Gardens evolved from many sources particularly from Islamic symbolism/patterns combined with Christian influences.  Another source was to borrow from Greek and Roman traditions.  In the garden is a bronze statue of Romulus and Remus, the she-wolf that suckled these founders of Rome.

The Renaissance gardeners built also upon existing Medieval gardens.  You can see the high surrounding arches with trellis work. Gardens became separated into compartments or geometrical holding areas.  Geometry was viewed as a reflection of God’s divine purpose that could be seen in the cosmic order around them. Space was a chance to capture the viewer with hidden areas and surprises.  Geometry as incorporated into art and science and viewed in terms of proportion, perspective and symmetry.  Gardens were arranged in this manner and plants bloomed in circles and triangles.  I found the research fascinating and I wished I had done this before visiting.  However, we are invited back to housesit in the nearby town of Cambridge in 2018.  This will be our third house and pet sit.  Some of the great advantages of house/pet sitting is the friends that are made.  In this family are three wonderful dogs – Meg, Muffin and Monty, plus a gorgeous cat called Charlie.

Here are a few more photos.

Gay woman 'killed and burned beyond recognition' in South Africa
Nonki Smous is believed to have been killed in South Africa.  Once again, one of our sister lesbians is killed.  We need to contact the South African Embassies and the South African tourist offices.
Hateful Christians
Male rapists or lesbians have stated that the Bible and churches told them that gays and lesbians were ‘evil’
 and they felt they had the right to kill them.   One of the murderers made this claim a couple of years ago and received a life sentence.  His mutilation of a lesbian was vicious and premeditated.  The judge hoped to send a message, but evil men will continue to find a way.
A Body is Discovered
A female body was discovered metres from an evangelical church in Kroonstad, South Africa.  Authorities are trying to determine if the body is that of a lesbian, Nonki Smous.  If so, she was just 28 years of age.

The murder came a few days after Bloemfontein, the capital of the Free State, held a Pride parade at the weekend.

Rage by the LGBT Community

“Love not hate,”is a campaign that has found that 41% of the LGBTI people in South Africa know someone who has been murdered because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Paula’s final comments:   We need to email or phone South African Embassies and complain.   We need to write to South African tourist agencies and state that we feel their country is homophobic and unsafe.  To South Africa:   We are looking at your police investigators to catch the murder(s).

paula here:  I found this fine article  written by Tracey E. Gilchrist posted in THE ADVOCATE.  She writes;

In her first interview since her electoral vote loss, the former Secretary of State said that hatred and distrust of women played a role in the election and that she plans on addressing the issue.

APRIL 07 2017 4:35 PM EDT

A man who famously bragged about grabbing women without consent, President Donald Trump, declared April Sexual Assault Awareness Month even as he called serial sexual harasser Bill O’Reilly “a good person.”

Trump also delivered a speech to ostensibly empower women, just about the same time that he rescinded an order put in place by President Barack Obama to protect women in the workplace from the gender pay gap and sexual harassment. On Thursday, for the first time since her crushing election loss in November, Hillary Clinton, in an interview with The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof, spoke at length about the role misogyny played in the election at the Women In the World Summit in New York City.

“It is fair to say that certainly, misogyny played a role. That just has to be admitted,” Clinton told Kristof in no uncertain terms when he asked about it.

Of course, Clinton went on to provide a more nuanced, complex answer, but for her ardent supporters, and even for those who weren’t fully behind her but who felt the sting of what she surely endured, there was bittersweet satisfaction in her comments.

Kristof’s question regarding misogyny touched on various troubling aspects of how the country arrived at placing an admitted groper in the White House.

“This is a women’s empowerment conference, so I have to ask, fundamentally, a man who bragged about sexual assault won the election and won 53 percent of the white women’s vote,” Kristof said.  “How is it that in the 21st century, and what does it say about the challenges that one faces in women’s empowerment that, in effect, misogyny won with a lot of women voters?”

With a mix of humor and gravity, Clinton began, “Well, I am currently writing a book, where I spend a lot of time wrestling with this. As you might guess, I’ve thought about it more than once.”

She continued to answer Kristof with a pointed admittance that she indeed believes that misogyny was a factor in the election outcome, adding that she had struggled to parse out the reasons why. Her thoughtful take came next:

“There is a constant struggle, and not just women, women and men, in a time of rapid change, like the one we are living through, between something that is different, that may hold out even possible positive consequences, and something that is familiar and something that really is first and foremost about security of what you have right now. I think, in this election, there was a very real struggle between what is viewed as change that is welcomed and exciting to so many Americans and change which is worrisome and threatening to so many others. And you layer on the first woman president over all of that and I think some people, women included, had very real problems.”

During the 45-minute interview, Kristof spoke with Clinton about Russia’s interference, FBI director James Comey’s 11th-hour announcement about potentially troublesome Clinton-related emails — which turned out to be nothing of the sort — and the Bernie Sanders effect as other possible factors in her loss of the electoral college (Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million people). And while she agreed that those issues all helped lead to the results of the November 8 election, her remarks about misogyny must surely have served as some sort of validation for the 3,000 women in the audience.

But while absorbing and understanding the deep misogyny that played out during the election can be collectively devastating, it’s no surprise that Clinton ended her remarks about the subject by continuing to look toward a brighter future for women.

For decades, Clinton has advocated and legislated in favor of progress and equality for women. As First Lady, she delivering her famous “Women’s rights are human rights”remarks

at the United Nations 4th World Conference on Women and she actively supported President Bill Clinton’s Family and Medical Leave Act. As a senator, she spearheaded the Paycheck Fairness Act and was an original cosponsor of the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. And while in the State Department, she established the first federal Office of Global Women’s Issues to ensure that gender equality is a cornerstone of international relations.

Kristof pointed out, referring no doubt to the record-breaking Women’s March protests held the day after Trump’s inauguration, that many women who were not galvanized by Clinton’s campaign, rallied after her loss. Many of those galvanized by Clinton are now considering running for office.

Without hesitation, Clinton said that she’s prepared to “recruit, mentor, and advise” young people.

“I’m going to spend a lot of my time encouraging young people, particularly young women, to go into politics, to go into public service because I believe that, not only is it a worthy and very satisfying way to contribute, to make a living, to learn more, but we really need you,” Clinton said.

House Sitting brings you to countries of your choice.  Now and again, house sitters like us, leave the animals for a while and go to an event.  Trish and I happened to be house/pet sitting in Sydney for the 2017 Mardi Gras.  Through past housesitting, we made friends with a couple whose mother’s apartment was on the parade route.  What a great opportunity to sit with a drink and watch the incredible outfits and floats.  This is one  of the largest festivals in the world.

It brings out the best in people of all sexual orientations.  For LGBTI persons that live in rural communities or homophobic countries, it is a week of LGBTI art, films, fairs, issues and discussions with events.  It is estimated that it generates more than A$30 million dollars for the state of New South Wales.

We are Queer, We are HERE.

As with most gay pride parades, Sydney Mardi Gras includes LGBTI members who are in the police, fire, ambulance and military. More and more commercial companies have floats recognising the power of the dollar and genuine belief in equality for all≥

History

On June 24, 1978 the Gay Solidarity Group met after the Stonewall Riots of the USA.  They totalled 500 persons who inspire of the police brutality of the Stonewall Riots decided to march in solidarity.  Like their American counterparts they wished to repeal and send a message to the Australian government.  Their numbers rose to 2,000 and their slogan was “out of the bars and into the streets.”  Although the organisers had obtained permission to march,  this was revoked.  The police broke up the parade/march. When the protesters reached Kings Cross and were dispersing, the police arrested 53 of the participants.  Most charges were dropped, but the newspaper, The Sydney Morning Herald, published the names of those arrested.  This led to the victimisation of men and women who were not out to families or to their employers.  Many lost family connections and their jobs.

The Following Year – 1979

History tends to repeat itself and many governments that have imposed restrictions or tried to suppress movements have watched them grow!

The second Mardi Gras Parade occurred in 1979 despite opposition by gay media, businesses and groups. The 1979 parade, in recognition of the Stonewall Riots and commemorating the riot of the previous year, was attended by 3,000 people. In that same year, the Labor Government of New South Wales, led by Neville Wran, repealed the Summary Offences Act so that police arrests would not occur.  The theme was “Power in the Darkness.”  No arrests were made.

The third, 1980 Parade was watched by a crowd of around 5,000.  By 1987 the crowd was estimated at 100,000.  This was a sad time as the Aids epidemic raged and with it bigoted and religious hatred that “Aids was God’s punishment.”

The 1990s.

1991: National Gay and Lesbian Film Festival included.

1993: Largest night time outdoor parade in the world.

1994:  Theme “We are Family” in response to the International Year of the Family.  There were 137 floats and over 600,000 spectators.  For the first time ABC TV filmed the event.

Later Years

The 2009 performance figures indicated about 9,500 participants and 134 floats were part of the parade, making it the largest ever.

2011: Up to 300,000 spectators from Australia and overseas turned out in 2011 for the celebrations.  That year ‘intersex” was adopted to allow for greater inclusion.  It allowed itself to be called by the acronym LGBTQI – (bisexual, transsexual, queer and intersects).

Somethings Never Change – That’s Great!’

Dykes on Bikes

This is the picture I saw from the balcony – 2017

Each parade starts with approximately 200 or more Dykes on Bikes – sometimes accompanied by firework displays.  The route itself is approximately 1.7 km or 1.1 miles through the Sydney CBD and Darlinghurst.

The parade travels along Oxford Street before turning into Flinders Street.  (This is where we viewed it in 2017)  If you are in Sydney at this time for the year (Summer) do not miss it.  There are parties with international performers.

A LGBT Phoenix

Labrys: Amazon Womyn are going to rise again

Hi paula key here.

I am entering my fourth year of daily blogging.  It keeps me out of mischief – LOL.   Over the years, the research has educated me and this was my goal when I decided to have website for all women.  Thanks to you, and others like you, my site is nearing 390,000 visitors.  This was way beyond my wildest imagination when I started.

I also write lesbian fiction ebooks.  They can be found on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Apple.   I am sure you know that you do not need a kindle to read ebooks.  You can download them to a variety of media devices (computer, laptop, iPhone, etc).

These books are set in Australia, Vietnam/USA and England.  They have a central theme – lesbians in different parts of the world travelling to the Michigan Women’s Festival.  (This festival closed in 2016 after 40 years).

I chose characters to represent an interesting world:

Jo is a mustering and ‘Jack-of-all trades on an isolated Australian cattle far.

Lt. Dee: is a young army nurse in the Vietnam War

Jazz is a television carpenter with an appetite for women.

I wrote these books to outline various themes:  Jo: The Australian Aboriginal Dream Time

                                                                                      Jazz:   Lesbian Women of Paris

Lt. Dee: Love in a War Zone

Sample chapters can be obtained on Amazon.  Thank you.  paula

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,

that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends

so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine,

and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.

Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again

, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content,

except for one small thing;

they each miss someone very special to them,

who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together,

but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.

His bright eyes are intent.

His eager body quivers.

Suddenly he begins to run from the group,

flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted,

and when you and your special friend finally meet,

you cling together in joyous reunion,

never to be parted again.

The happy kisses rain upon your face;

your hands again caress the beloved head,

and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet,

so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

Author unknown…’

RIP

Here is some helpful advice on the loss of a pet.

https://www.avma.org/public/PetCare/Pages/pet-loss.aspx

When someone we love – such as a beloved pet – dies, the loss often causes grief and intense sorrow. By physically showing your grief, you actively mourn the death of your beloved pet. This active mourning will move you on a journey toward reconciling with the loss of your pet.

What Should I Do?

Your journey of grief will not take on a prescribed pattern or look like stages.  During the period when you are actively mourning your loss, it may help to consider the following:

Acknowledge the reality of the death 

Acknowledging the full reality of your loss may take weeks or months, but will be done in a time that is right for you. Be kind to yourself as you prepare for the “new normal” of a life without your beloved pet. Just as it took time to build the relationship with your pet, it will take time to get used to him or her not being there.

Move toward the pain of the loss

Experiencing these emotional thoughts and feelings about the death of a pet is a difficult, but important, need. A healthier grief journey may come from taking your time to work through your feelings rather than trying to push them away or ignore it.

Continue your relationship through memories

Your memories allow your pets to live on in you. Embracing these memories, both happy and sad, can be a very slow and, at times, painful process that occurs in small steps. For example, take some time to look at past photos, write a tribute to your pet, or write your pet a letter recalling your time together.

Adjust your self-identity

Part of your self-identity might come from being a pet owner. Others may also think of you in relation to your pet. You may be “the guy who always walked the big black dog around the neighborhood” or “the friend whose cat always jumped on laps.” Adjusting to this change is a central need of mourning.

Search for meaning

When a pet dies, it’s natural to question the meaning and purpose of pets in your life. Coming to terms with these questions is another need you must meet during your grief journey. Know that it is the asking, not the finding of concrete answers, that is important.

Receive support from others

You need the love and support of others because you never “get over” grief. Talking or being with other pet owners who have experienced the death of a pet can be one important way to meet this need.

Things to Remember

The experience of loss is different for everyone and can present unique challenges.

The deafening silence – the silence in your home after the death of a pet may seem excruciatingly loud. While your animal companion occupies physical space in your life and your home, many times their presence is felt more with your senses. When that pet is no longer there, the lack of their presence – the silence – becomes piercing. It becomes the reality of the “presence of the absence.” Merely being aware of this stark reality will assist in preparing you for the flood of emotions.

The special bond with your pet—the relationship shared with your pet is a special and unique bond, a tie that some might find difficult to understand. There will be well-meaning friends and family members who will think that you should not mourn for your pet or who will tell you that you should not be grieving as hard as you are because “it’s just a cat” or “just a dog.”  Your grief is normal and the relationship you shared with your special friend needs to be mourned.

Grief can’t be ranked—sometimes our heads get in the way of our heart’s desire to mourn by trying to justify the depth of our emotion. Some people will then want to “rank” their grief, pitting their grief emotions with others who may be “worse.” While this is normal, your grief is your grief and deserves the care and attention of anyone who is experiencing a loss.

Questions of spirituality—during this time in your grief journey, you may find yourself questioning your beliefs regarding pets and the after-life. Many people around you will also have their own opinions. It will be important during this time for you to find the answers right for you and your individual and personal beliefs.

    Orange is the New Black

Paula here.  You have known and followed Ruby Rose’s career and love life for many years,. Then and again, you may have only discovered her (and lusted after her) when she plays Stella Carlin in Orange is the New Black.  Ruby Rose grew up in Australia and was born on March 20, 1986.   She will be 31 years old in 2017. Her own claim to public fame came in 2002 when she auditioned for Girlfriend model search.  She came second to Catherine McNeil.  The two were engaged to be married but later split up.

Ruby and Catherine

 

ASTRA Award for Favourite Female Personality.

2009 proved to be a good year for Ruby Rose when she won the above award.  Her popularity rose and she worked as a judge in the finale of Australia’s Next Top Model.  From 2008 onwards,         Ruby Rose appeared on television and films.  The next year, Ruby Rose designed clothes in a collection called  Milk and Honey.  With her androgynous look, Ruby Rose modelled washed jeans, unique t-shirts and leather jackets.  Ruby Rose has many tattoos and while I am not personally a fan of tattoos, they seem to compliment this gorgeous woman.

 Girlfriends 

Ruby Rose and Phoebe

On 18 March 2014, Rose reported that she was formally engaged to designer Phoebe Dahl, granddaughter of author Roald Dahl.  This was her second engagement.  They broke up.  The same year, Ruby Rose came out as gender fluid.  He stated,” I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up every day sort of gender neutral.” As if to explain this statement, the public was given a release of a short film, “Break Free.”  At the start of the movie, Ruby Rose is a very feminine woman and by the end of the movie, she is a heavily tattooed looking man.”

Reconnecting of Ruby Rose to Jessica Origliasso.

They dated in 2008 and eight years later they became involved in a relationship.

In a post to her 292,000 Instagram followers, 32-year-old Jess shared a pic of a topless Rose, looking out over a secluded country view.

“There is something beautiful about disappearing somewhere no one else can find you — except the only person you never need to hide from,” she wrote.

Ruby Rose has called Jess “the most amazing person.”  And there are other comments by Ruby Rose.

“We just jam every night. We just play music and sing and cook dinner, and she’s amazing. She’s wonderful.”

“She’s always such a moral support for me and my moral compass,” she continued.

And speaking of nights, there are some wonderful intimate moments of the two of them in the bathtub.

 Jess has words about Ruby Rose.

“Who needs sleep when your reality is finally greater than your wildest dreams,” Origliasso shared in a post last year,

At almost the same time, Rose was sharing a little ode to her girlfriend from her Instagram account, showing her 10.5 million followers a picture of herself in a Titanic T-shirt that one clever fan had changed, so that she and Jess were in place of Jack and Rose.

“Someone changed my Titanic Tee and it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen haha … @jessicaveronica I WOULD FIT ON THAT DEBRIS IF YOU JUST SHARED IT WITH ME!!!” she wrote.

The New York Times reports: April 6, 2017
Eleven weeks into the Trump presidency, the Secret Service is grappling with how to constrain the rising costs and unexpected strain that have come with protecting a new first family as large, mobile and high-profile as any in modern American history.
To keep up, dozens of agents from New York and field offices across the country are being temporarily pulled off criminal investigations to serve two-week stints protecting members of the Trump family, including the first lady and the youngest son in Manhattan’s Trump Tower.


Others, already assigned to the highly selective presidential protective division, had hoped for relief after a grueling election year. That hope has evaporated as they work more overtime hours and spend long stretches away from home because of the Trump family’s far-flung travel.
And in Washington, agency leaders are already negotiating for tens of millions of dollars in supplemental funding to help offset the sky-high costs of securing Trump Tower and other high-profile family assets like Mar-a-Lago in Florida. It is a figure that will only continue to rise.

Here is one comment posted by a reader.

Trump wants to cut the budget that provides basic needs for average Americans,
I say he can start with himself. If the rest of us have to do more with less, than he can too. If he’s so damned wealthy, then set an amount for SS protection and he pays anything above that. T\
People don’t have decent housing, can’t pay medical bills, drive roads that are like a lunar surface, have to work in their retirement years, etc, etc, and he’s lives like royalty, it’s disgusting.

The Daily Show is terrific.  It is comedy that takes on all the unfairness, stupidity, hateful speech and actions of humans.  This show has exposed politicians.   It is worth going to the Daily Show webpage and type in “Sean Spicer and Kindergarten” or you can do the same on Tube.  Don’t miss this video.  You will be ‘rolling in the aisles’ with laughter.

Sean Spicer

Saturday Night Live has a go at Spicer

Spicer has become more and more angry and condescending to the Press.  His remarks have indicated that they are just kindergarten kids.

This video cleverly places Spicer with kindergarten kids.  I really enjoyed the little girl with a globe that kept asking, “When are we going to talk about Russia!”

Here is how the interview went with the kindergarten kids.

Queries included “Can I feel the fish today?”

“When are we going to learn about Russia?”

and “Where are my building blocks?”

Spicer was quick to try and control the “kindergarten press” with words that he has used to grown up pressed members.

“You don’t get to just yell out questions.

We’re going to raise our hand like big boys and girls,

Spicer snaps when one boy, looking like he’s about to have an accident, asks to use the bathroom.

April and the bathroom boy

One little girl shakes her head.  This happened in a real press meeting when April Ryan, the Washington bureau chief for American urban Radio Networks would not stop shaking her head.   This really annoyed Spicer who condescendingly reprimanded the woman as if she were a child.

“It’s my turn!” a student named April shouts, referring to getting to feed the classroom fish.

“At some point, April, you’re going to have to take no for an answer,” Spicer says. “You’re shaking your head — take no for an answer.

Here are several images of actress Melissa McCarthy from Saturday Night Live.  She does an incredible rendition of Spicer.

Paula here.  I started this blog nearly four years ago to empower women by reporting great achievement, women’s history, and abuses.  This is one of the saddest abuses I have seen.

In the oil rich countries of the Middle East, various human rights agencies have encountered slave-like conditions and the deaths of many poor people on work visas.

It is clear that gender has no role in the abusive treatment of workers.  This story is about a callous female boss who used her hand to operate a video camera instead of giving it to a maid clinging to life on a balcony.

The Ethiopian Maid on the Window Ledge

This tragic event took place in April, 2017 in Kuwait.  On the seventh floor of an apartment above the bustling city traffic, a maid screams for help.  She is dangling and will certainly fall without a hand to help.  Her boss, a callous and arrogant Kuwaiti woman finds the whole incident amusing or worthy to video.  Will she use the video to show amongst her friends?  Will she ask if her female friends have to endure these ‘foreign workers?”  Who knows what were the thoughts in this inhumane mind, but it happened and she is under arrest.   The maid fell and survived, but this draws attention to the plight of workers on visas that can be forced to work 18 hours a day and be paid pittances.

Does the Ethiopian Maid Understand Arabic

Arabic would not be the maid’s first language, so this conversation may have had no impact on the servant/maid.  The video went viral and the conversation is as follows:

“Oh crazy, come here,” a woman says casually in Arabic, holding a camera up to the maid.“Hold on to me! Hold on to me!” the maid yells.Instead, the woman steps back to video.  The maid loses her grip and falls seven floors below.The Kuwait Times reported that the Ethiopian maid had been working in the country for several years.  It went on to confirm that the female boss who videoed the incident has been arrested on the charge of “failing to help the worker.”

Human Rights Watch

Wealth and power can be used for good or for evil purposes.  In many Middle East countries, foreign workers are cheap and plentiful.  Many have their passports confiscated and they are at the mercy of their employers.  I know this for a fact, because I was in Qatar and spoke to a number of taxi drivers.  Most drivers had to share dormitories and work long taxi hours.  In each case, the taxi driver was sending money home to support his family and provide an education for his kids.  Now, Qatar is building seven cities for the FIFA soccer team.

Human Rights Watch has documented unsafe working conditions particularly in the construction business.  Many foreign workers have died at work.  For females, there is the danger of sexual harassment and rape.  To report such incidents puts the woman in danger.  In certain Gulf countries to falsely accuse an employer is a serious offence that can place the accuser in jail.

Racism, Sexism and Poverty-ism.

I am not sure if the third word exists.  There are more than 600,000 foreign workers in Kuwait.  Each employer comes with his/her own set of human credentials.  Some are good to their employees and those actions would be inspired by the Koran.   Like employers expressing other world-wide religions, compassion and justice may take a backseat to power and arrogance.  Like any bully, there is a sense of entitlement to treat others as worthless.  Perhaps, a sense of sick enjoyment comes from the power to humiliate.  Nearly every family in Kuwait (population 3 million) has a servant.  Children grow up watching how their parents treat their workers.  It has also become a symbol of middle class wealth to have a servant.   The once exploited is now likely to become the exploiter.

Human Rights Watch Stories

In Kuwait, another Ethiopian woman called his boss, “Mama.”

“Mama would close the fridge; we were not allowed to take any food,” the woman is quoted as saying. “She also beat me if there was anything wrong, like a tiny speck of dust. I worked from 6 a.m. until 1 a.m. (19 hours per day).

It’s not uncommon for employers to lock their servants inside apartments and compounds, Begum said — even though they can be arrested and deported for leaving without their employers’ permission.

A Filipino worker — told Human Rights Watch what happened when her boss found out she’d sought help after working long hours with little food.

“After returning home, the employer hit me in the face and said, ‘I’ll let you die first before you go,’ ” the report reads. “She [dragged me by] my blouse in her two hands and pushed me. She threw me out of the window from the third floor.”

This woman woke up in a hospital, according to the report, and learned that her employers had filed charges against her and said she tried to kill herself.

“I came here to work, not to kill myself,” she told the agency.

The Ethiopian woman’s fall was also reported as a suicide attempt, according to local reports. So were the injuries of eight other women that were interviewed.

“All of them said they were trying to escape abuse.”

In 2015, Kuwait passed its first protection for foreign workers!  Can you imagine this was passed in this late date???

The law prohibits employers from confiscating their passports.  Employers must provide workers with one day off each week, paid vacation and a maximum 12-hour working day.  

This law is just on paper.  Many workers are just prisoners in their employers’ home until their contracts run out.  There have been many suicides.

Exposing Injustice – The Video Way

In this story, a ruthless, heartless criminal employer videoed her maid’s fall from a seventh floor.  Luckily, for the maid, she escaped with a broken arm.  Will the maid receive financial compensation?

Social media has changed the world by exposing crimes of the powerful on the powerless.   A reporter, Abigail Hauslohner, (Washington Post) documented the lives of men who worked on construction sites in Qatar.  After hard labour, these men would return to a labour camp.  They slept in crowded, bug-infested bunks.  Their work showed a thriving Qatar to the world.  Last year, an Indian worker filmed his working conditions in Saudi Arabia.  This time the VIDEO became a tool in the hands of the oppressed.

First and foremost, congratulations to Col. Kristin Goodwin on her promotion.  I just love a woman in uniform. LOL.

I salute you on your promotion and on your marriage.

 

When Hatred Makes People unChristian.

Let me introduce you to a ‘stone throwing family’ – the Moore’s of Alabama.   Judge Roy Moore was stripped from his legal position for going against the Supreme Court on “Gay Marriage.”   It seems that the Moore family decided to let Mrs. Moore write a hateful message against the promotion of a lesbian.   Yes, cadets within ten feet of a lesbian will become homosexual or throw all their morals and values to the wind.

Your son has been arrested 8 times – why not volunteer in drug rehabilitation centres?

She has called Col. Kristin Goodwin “ungodly.”  She states that her ‘lifestyle’ is without morals.  However, Kayla Moore’s son as of November 2016  was arrested for the eighth time in the last five years.  Perhaps, Col Goodwin could teach him ‘conduct becoming a gentleman.’   Mrs. Moore is the president of a hate  group called “The Foundation for Moral Law.”

Here is Mrs. Moore’s “Christian” letter that you can see exemplifies Jesus’ words of “do not judge” and “love your neighbour.”

“On March 14, you announced that Col. Goodwin had been nominated for appointment to the rank of brigadier general, a necessary prelude to her appointment as commandant. I oppose this nomination because Col. Goodwin does not set a proper moral example for youth.

“The person responsible for the education of cadets at the academy is a role model and an exemplar of proper deportment and conduct. Col. Goodwin, as a lesbian who is ‘married’ to another woman, not only demeans the institution of marriage but contradicts the divine basis for marriage revealed in Scripture and evident in nature.

“Because homosexual relationships are unnatural, they are incompatible with the basic structure of civil society and the historic antecedents of military order and discipline. By nominating an open lesbian who proclaims that she is married to another woman, the Department of Defense states its disregard for the fundamental moral order established by God, thus breaking trust with the millions of Christians who voted for the new president in hope that the ungodly policies of the previous administration would be repudiated.

“The presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.”

Below are some comments that I found on different sites.

From Ann:

Well, I opposed the Inauguration of one Donald J. Trump. He is an awful role model for our youth. I condemn his unabashed bigotry, and his hateful comments about women, Muslims, Hispanics, and other marginalized groups. I condemn him for mocking Serge Kovaleski, and for welcoming white supremacists into his administration. I condemn him for running a campaign based on division and for lying to the American people. I condemn his inability to admit personal fault. I condemn his lack of intellectual curiosity and his disrespect for American norms and values. On the most fundamental level, I condemn Trump as a human being.

I guess we’re both out of luck, aren’t we, Kayla?

From P.J

She’s married (not living in sin, LOL) and she’s not divorced.  There is no record of her ‘grabbing women by the pussy.”   She is not being investigated for links to Russia.   As far as I know, she has never wished to prevent “Meals on Wheels” or wanted to throw 20-25 million Americans off Medicare. 

Speaking of moral examples, in November 2016 Kayla Moore’s son was arrested for the eighth time in the last five years.”

Caleb Moore – a long list of convictions

Hypocritical asshole

From Teddy

The Moores oppose an ungodly lesbian as air force academy commandant, yet were massive supporters of Donald Trump. The most blatantly filthy and immoral candidate for president in my lifetime. The level of cognitive dissidence this requires just boggles the mind.

From Amazon

Read the Parable of the Good Samaritan.   Substitute “Gay or lesbian” for Samaritan.  Note that Samaritans were the outcasts of Jewish society.  They were the “ungodly” a word   Mrs. Moore likes to use.   Now, in that parable or story Jesus is telling us not to pick and choose who we think our neighbour is….but to love our neighbour.

HUGE. The Associated Press reports:

A federal appeals court in Chicago on Tuesday ruled that the 1964 Civil Rights Act also protects LGBT employees from workplace discrimination, the first time a federal appellate court has come to that conclusion. The decision by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes after it threw out a July finding by three of its own judges that the law doesn’t cover sexual-orientation bias and ordered a rare rehearing by the full court, a rare session known as an en banc hearing.

THIS LETTER FROM MRS. MOORE IS CERTAINLY AGAINST THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT.

“I was a kid, I hadn’t grown that much so I was really scared.” Jada was 12 when her father took her to live in Saudi Arabia and started talking about marrying her off. Jada had lived all of her life in New Jersey, in the United States, and marriage had not crossed her mind.

Earlier this month, PBS News Hour shone a light Jada’s story and the American citizens who are taken overseas to be forced into marriage.

Jada immediately sought help from her family back home, texting her half-sister. They soon found out that the U.S. State Department could not intervene to stop a marriage in another country, as American citizens must abide by the laws of the country they are in, and these may allow child marriage.

Jada’s aunt felt powerless: “She’s thousands and thousands miles away […]. It seemed like everybody was saying ‘There is nothing we can do’.” She got in touch with the Tahirih Justice Center, a Girls Not Brides member based in the US that provides legal services to women and girls who face gender-based violence and persecution.

For several months, Tahirih worked with Jada’s aunt and half-sister on strategies to bring her home. Jada eventually flew back to the United States and, with the support of Tahirih, her family requested her full custody. She is now back in school and dreams of attending university.

FORCED AND CHILD MARRIAGE IN THE UNITED STATES

According to the Tahirih Justice Center, thousands of individuals across the United States may face forced marriages each year. Children in particular are vulnerable to forced marriage and, although there is little nationwide data available, state statistics paint a worrying picture:

Forced Marriage Unit signs

• In Virginia, between 2004-2013, nearly 4,500 children were married. Over 200 married at age 15 or younger, and about 90% of underage spouses are girls.
• In Maryland, over 3,000 children have been married since 2000.
• In Texas between 2009-2013, over 700 children between the ages of 15 and 17 were married.

Home and Pet Sitting offers many wonderful experiences.  We have sat twice for some families; the majority of them have become our friends.  The animals have won our hearts.

As of April 4, 2017 we have just moved into our new home.  We arrived at the same as the cyclone that hit Australia swept onto Kiwi shores.  The wind is howling and the rain is pelting against the windows.

 

 

We can put on a fire, thanks to the generosity of our hosts, and wait out the storm – should be gone tomorrow.

Travelling between housesits in NZ,  gives us the opportunity to look at the history of tiny towns and drive through rolling hills that have been pushed up due to volcanic movements.

 

Most of these sites bright absolute pleasure and intrigue.   However, here is a tragedy that we came across as we drove from one housesitting assignment to another.  The railway disaster happened in 1953.   We stopped to pay our respects at the memorial.

The Tangiwai Train Crash – 1953 (Christmas Eve)

Let me first introduce you to a geographical term “Lahar” pronounced la-har.  It is a type of mudflow that can be deadly.  It was a lahar that was responsible for taking Christmas travellers.  I had never heard of this term before, but obviously had read about mudslides.

Mt., Ruapehu and its volcanic lake

Near where the doomed train was due to pass, a volcanic crater lake (named Mt Ruapehu) released a huge lehar.  This is a type of mudflow that carries along rocky debris and water.  The mudflow forms like dense cement, can move at 22 mph and be as deep as 140 metres or 460 ft deep. It was this lehar that took out the bridge.

The Christmas Eve Express Train

On Christmas Eve, a packed train left Wellington and travelled north towards the city of Auckland.  It was night time and 285 passengers were packed with presents for loved ones.  Unknown to them, the lahar from Mt. Ruapehu crater lake had started its flow.  By 10.15 pm, many passengers were settling in for a sleep or celebrating with a few drinks.

The Place of “Weeping Waters.”

The train hurried on to a place on the Whangaehu river which the Maori named Tangiwai or “Weeping Waters.”  Lives changed or were taken as at around 10.21 pm,  the train plunged into the river taking 151 lives.  It was New Zealand’s worse rail disaster and the world’s eighth-deadliest.  The two islands of New Zealand and its two million population was in shock.  Many knew someone that had died.  Just one day earlier, the nation had cheered the arrival of the young Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Phillip. Seven months earlier in May, 1953, Edmund Hillary had become a Kiwi hero when he became the first man (aside from his Sherpa Guide) that had climbed Mt. Everest.

Christmas Day

On the following day of the disaster, and with no newspapers published,

many New Zealanders first heard the news on the radio.  The Prime Minister, Sidney Holland described the sad news.

The Wrong Time at the Wrong Place

The Christmas season happens in the summer months of New Zealand.  We have enjoyed four warm summers in spectacular scenery.  That particular Christmas Eve was warm.  The irony was that there had been little rain and there was no sign of flooding in the Whangaehu River.  No one suspected that a lahar would make its way down from the volcanic lake of Mt. Ruapehu on that night.

In fact, a goods train had crossed the same bridge at around 7 p.m that same night.  What a sad fate that about 3 hrs and 21 minutes later, the express loaded with humans would meet a sad end.

The Horrendous Affect of the Lahar.

Mt. Ruapehu released a lahar of two million cubic metres of water from the lake crater A 6-metre-high wave (18 ft) containing water, ice, mud and rocks surged in a tsunami-like manner down the Whangaehu River.  Experts estimate that between 10.10 p.m and 10.15 p.m the lahar struck the concrete pylons of the Tangiwai railway bridge.

At the Memorial

Arthur Ellis in later years

Arthur Ellis in 1953

We walked to the memorial and looked at the list of names.  There were four from one family.  One picture on the information boards was of a man called Arthur Cyril Ellis.  He had been driving that night and saw that the bridge had collapsed.  He grabbed a flashlight/torch and desperately scrambled up the hill in an effort to stop the approaching train.  He failed and yet succeeded.

The train travelling at approximately 65 km/h with nine carriages and two guard’s vans headed towards disaster.  It is stated that the alert driver, Charles Parker, had applied the break some 200 m from the bridge.  This allowed for survivors.  It seems that the driver had probably spotted Arthur’s flashlight./torch.

 

 

The ill-fated train

The engine plunged and took with it five second-class carriages.  The force of the torrent destroyed four of these five carriages preventing little chance of survival.  

Five carriages were already in the river.  The leading first class carriage, teetered on the edge of the bridge before toppling into the water.  It was taken downstream, but remarkably 21 of the 22 passengers survived.

Living in the Moment

We live in a world that has many ying-yang events:  opulence/famine, birth/death, war/peace,  health/disease,  happiness/unhappiness.

Many events, like this train disaster, was out of the hands of those who travelled on a Christmas Eve filled with happiness and a following day filled with expectations.  For Trish and myself, the monument was a reminder of the fragility of life.  We only have the present ‘moment.’  For the most part, this is the moment for decisions – for gratitude and reflection.

These happy people and their dogs were posted on my children’s webpage  http://childrenandteensstoriestoinspireandmotivate.com

I explained to the kids that these people have agreed to have photos and acknowledge that they and their pets have common looks.  I also explained that it is rude to suddenly tell someone that they look like their dog, or the dog looks like them. LOL.

Masculine women, Feminine men

Which is the rooster, which is the hen?

It’s hard to tell ’em apart today! And, say!

Sister is busy learning to shave,

Brother just loves his permanent wave,

It’s hard to tell ’em apart today! Hey, hey!

Girls were girls and boys were boys, when I was a tot,

Now we don’t know who is who, or even what’s what!

Knickers and trousers, baggy and wide,

Nobody knows who’s walking inside,

Those masculine women and feminine men

Taiwan

Taiwan

Taipei March 15, 2017.

– A judgement against a lesbian who married a man because of pressure from her family has sparked criticism in Taiwan as the island moves closer to legalizing same-sex marriage.

The woman was recently ordered by a court to return around Tw$500,000 ($16,130) to her husband after she left him to return to her girlfriend, whom she had lived with for many years.

The Ruling

The ruling by the district court in northern Hsinchu said the money would compensate the groom for wedding fees, “betrothal money” and emotional pain that he suffered.

In Taiwan it is common for the groom to give money to the bride’s family as a goodwill gesture to seal the marriage deal.

As the case surfaced in local media this week, online commenters voiced their support for the woman as it emerged her family had opposed her relationship with her girlfriend and urged her to marry a man.

”Same-sex marriage should be legalised so people don’t have to marry someone they don’t love,” read one message on ETtoday website.

Others called the judgement a symptom of homophobia.

Television’s Opinions

”This kind of outcome is caused by anti-gay people,” said a post on the website of TV Channel EBC.

Taiwan’s same-sex marriage bill is due for a final reading this year and the island would become the first place in Asia to legalise it.

But the issue has caused a split in Taiwanese society, with protests for and against the bill as conservative critics say it would destroy family values.

Taiwan is considered progressive on many issues including gay rights, however its roots in Confucianism translate into a strong sense of adherence to traditional mores.  Family is the foundation of Confuciansim.

Past attempts to legalise same-sex marriage stalled under the Kuomintang party, which dominated politics for decades until it was unseated by President Tsai Ing-wen’s Democratic Progressive Party last year.

While she garnered online support, there was also criticism of the woman, identified only as Hsu.

Arguments for the Man Involved

”She should have insisted on not marrying the man instead of dragging him down with her,” said a comment on ETtoday.

Another on Apple Daily said the groom “must feel like he’s been fooled”.

According to the court judgement Hsu married her husband in January last year but left him a few days later.

It described how she had sent a message to an unidentified third party months before, saying she had a close relationship with a woman but her mother would not allow them to be together.

”She dated the plaintiff to ease her mother’s concerns,” the judgement said.

Apple Daily reported Wednesday she had revealed she was gay on her wedding night.

The pair had met on a blind date and both sets of parents had urged them to marry, the report said.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke, a EU politician from Poland has claimed that women are too “small and weak” to qualify for equal pay.   This dinosaur comment has resulted in him being suspended without pay from his job.

These remarks were made in the EU Parliament and again repeated on the television show “Good Morning Britain.”

Cave man talk, “Woman get back in cave.”

A Discliplinary Action 

Korwin-Mikke will be suspended from parliamentary activities for 10 days, forfeit his politicians’ daily subsistence allowance for 30 days, and be banned from representing the legislature for a year, the parliament’s president Antonio Tajani said.

Mr Tajani said he “will not tolerate such behaviour” and added that “by offending all women, [Mr Korwin-Mikke] displayed contempt for our most fundamental values”.

It comes after the Polish MEP, who stands for election under a party name made from his own initials, slammed women’s rights to equal pay in a series of interviews.

He previously told the European Parliament that women should earn less than men, “because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent, and they must earn less! That’s all”.

The comments drew gasps in the chamber, and another MEP,  a woman called Iratxe Garcia Perez, from Spain, told him: “Look, according to your theory, I should not have the right to be here, as a member of this parliament.”The Socialist Workers’ Party politician continued: “And I know it hurts you, I know it hurts and worries you, that today women can sit in this house and represent European citizens with the same rights as you.“I am here to defend all European women from men like you.”

 

          Women’s equal rights – cave style

Katy Perry

KATHY PERRY: ‘I KISSED A GIRL’ SONG

In March 2017, Katy Perry accepted Human Rights Campaign‘s National Equality Award with a great speech that outlined her right-win Pentecostal upbringing in the state California.  This is a fact that so many in the audience can relate to – how right wing Christians see so much ‘sin’ in everyone!

The HRC – Human Rights Campaign

This is one of the world’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organizations.  Their goal is to continue to fight for equal basic rights for LGBTQ people.   At this gathering the HRC  praised Kathy for her positive influence in the lives of young LGBTQ and straight kids.

Growing Up Pentecostal

Kathy who is 32 years of age revealed that she was sent to Pentecostal youth groups that covered the topic of sex and sexual orientation.  It was difficult for her to look at Jesus and the Gospels and how Pentecostal counsellors tried to “pray sin away” in these areas.  Kathy admitted to the audience that she knew that sexuality wasn’t ‘black and white.”  Then, in 2008 she recorded, “I Kissed a Girl” (and I liked it).  She admitted that this song started a conversation around the world.  She admitted that many people would be surprised that she “prayed the gay away.” (I presume they were praying for the sins of others who were gay).

Using her Gift as a Singer

Kathy went on to tell her audience the the “gift’ of singing brought her to meet LGBTQ persons who were the complete opposite of the images she had been taught in Bible camp.

She said, “These people were nothing like I had been taught to fear. They were the most free, strong, kind and inclusive people I have ever met.”

I Did More than That!

“I’m just a singer-songwriter, honestly. I speak my truths and I paint my fantasies into bite-sized pop songs,” she said in her speech, bringing up her debut mega-hit “I Kissed A Girl.” As she revealed, the song is more than an ear-worm. “Truth be told, I did more than that.”

Cats and Kittens: Cute Images on Great Kid’s Website:   You might like to pass this on to a young person with my website

http://childrenandteensstoriestoinspireandmotivate.com

 

Cats are amazing animals.  If you see a group of cats, they are called aChowder, but if you see a group of kittens, you are watching a kindle.  You may name your cats, but a male cat is called a Tom and a female cat is called a Molly or a Queen.

 

How Long Do You Sleep?

You probably do not sleep as long as a cat.  They sleep between 16-18 hours a day.

How Heavy is your Cat?

Unless you own a lion or tiger, your cat weights around 4-5 kg or 8-11 lbs or pounds.  The heaviest cat on record weighed over 21 kilograms or over 46 lbs.

Famous People and Cats

The Emperor Napoleon and the Roman Julius Caesar were afraid of cats.  If a cat was afraid of a human, it could jump 7 times its own height to get away.

Tell Me About A Cat’s Body, Please.

  1. Cats have 24 whiskers and 203 bones.  b) a cat’s tongue is rough and has little hooks.  These hooks act like a comb so that pussycat can clean him or herself.  c) a cat can see 6 times better than you!   d) You have finger prints but a cat’s nose is a ‘finger print” or “nose print” that is unique.

Do you Have a Talking Cat?

Well, of course, a cat can’t speak in human words but it does have over 100 sounds.   Did you think it only said, “meeee-ow.”

Making Faces

Humans can make faces because they can move their jaws up and down and left and right     A cat can only move its jaw up and down.  Don’t ever try to move it side to side as you may break its jaw.

Loving Your Cats and Dogs (Any Pets)

Throwing stones or beating any animal can cause terrible and long lasting pain.  When humans get hurt, they can take an aspirin or go to the doctor or hospital for pain medication.   A wild animal or bird cannot do this.  If a stone injures its eye or body, it will be in pain for hours and may even die. If it dies, it then cannot feed its young.  Be a friend to all living creatures – and don’t let anyone else hurt them.   Thank you.

This site is dedicated to ALL WOMEN – young and old and in between.    This article will inspire all who read it.   We are raising a generation of young girls like Katie Francis.   Hopefully, the majority of these girls will be open-minded and accepting of people regardless of their race, religion, gender and sexual orientation.    This article appears on my children’s site.  Please promote it if you can.   There are really great books that I have written over the past twenty year.                     http://childrenandteensstoriestoinspireandmotivate.com

No.1 Girl Scout of Cookies Sales – How Many Did She Sell?

  

Fifteen year old Girl Scout, Katie Francis lives in Oklahoma City, USA.   Girl Scouts are called Girl Guides in other countries.  I was one, maybe, you are in Guides or Scouts, Brownies or Cubs?

Imagine How Many Boxes She Sold

Katie Francis has been in the organisation for seven years.  She smashed all recent cookie sales (biscuits) by reaching 100,100 bones.

How Does She Do It?

 

Katie has told everyone that she has three rules:

  1. “Time” – You need to devote as much time as you can.
  2. “Commitment:” – You have to want to do it.
  3. “Ask Everyone.:” – Don’t get shy if a few people have refused.  Keep asking.

 

 Use every hour of the day
Cookie season usually only goes on for a few short months each spring. That means there’s no time to lose, says Katie.
“I go out selling cookies until I get home at night. And on Saturdays I sell all day long. I take every single hour that I can to go sell,” she says.
Do A Good Set Up
“I make sure that I have all my signs ready. I have a few that I put up on my cookie booth that advertise what we’re doing for that year — what my goal is, what my troupe is going to be doing,” she explains.

“Whenever there’s good weather a lot of girls are always out so the market gets kinda saturated, and other years it’s absolutely freezing and snowing, and not many people want to stop at a booth to buy,” Katie notes.  But, she knows that if she is there in bad weather, people like her commitment.

)It’s not a contest – be kind to other cookie sellers
Besides, she notes, “one of the last lines of our Girl Scout law is ‘be a sister to every Girl Scout,’ and everyone always follows that. It’s really amazing.”

 Sing and Dance
When sales are slow, she explains, “I like to sing and dance to help attract customers’ attention.”
“I’ve sung songs to Christmas tunes, Girl Scout songs and popular songs. ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman’ is a real popular one,” she observes, citing the tune from Disney’s “Frozen” movie.
Even if you are not a Scout or Girl Guide, you can learn from Katie Francis.
She does not give up.    She thinks of others because the sales helps other
Scouts and Guides.   Be the best that you can be.

There are still cultural taboos that involve a ‘family’s honour.’  If an individual disgraces a family, the ‘old ways’ come into play: a money offering, some form of compromise – and – at the extreme end – death to the perpetrator.  The  payments depends on how damaging the incident is in terms of a private matter or public knowledge.  The latter can demand huge sums or death!

There is help:  In Britain, contact the Forced Marriage Unit

The British  government’s Forced Marriage Unit (FMU) has received hundreds of calls from young gay men and women – mainly men – who fear they are going to be forced into marriage by their family, against their will.

In 2010, the FMU has dealt with 29 confirmed cases of forced marriage involving gay men and women. The following year, 2011,  the unit offered support and advice to nearly 1,700 cases in total.  One victim who had kissed a girl at the age of 12 years knew that she was a lesbian.  When she came out to her parents, they still forced her into a marriage with a man.

To aid the process, a gun, a knife, and pills are often left in the room, along with a can of petrol and a box of matches.  Even exorcism is tried and with a religious group around the victim, it takes will power to know that you are NOT possessed by evil spirits.

Taking Victims Out of the Country

One trick that families have been using is a holiday in their country of origin.  The victim is shown the return ticket.  Once in the foreign country, girls can be kidnapped or taken to remote areas and dumped on a relative.  She is given the choice – marry a citizen of this country and then you can both return to Great Britain.  Otherwise, we will put you to work right here in the village.  The local police are often bribed should the girl seek help.

A couple of girls who were in this situation, were able to contact friends back in Britain via the internet. With help, they contacted the Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity which helps vulnerable LGBT teenagers seek refuge.

Before leaving the country, young women and women, need to provide details of their parent’s names, the British address, and the date on the ticket that states their return.  This should be given to several confidents: teacher, employer, local clergy person, the local LGBT community – the more people that are informed the better chances for a possible victim.

Forced Marriage Unit signs

My suggestions:  I am not living in Great Britain, but the airports should be plastered with big billboards/signs/posters that state it is a crime to leave a child in a foreign country without letting the local British police be aware of the situation.  And a heavy fine/jail for abandoned and forced marriages of their children.

Schools need to leave pamphlets available for young people in libraries.  Public libraries need to have these pamphlets, too.   Local clergy need to speak out about forced marriages – stating this is not the way of their specific religion.

Airlines:  If the airline finds that the family does not include a young family member, then they should not board and the British Embassy should be involved.

Here is more from a Canadian government source, but it is applicable

While abroad you can email for help at sos@international.gc.ca or call the Emergency Operations Centre if in North America at 1-800-267-6788 or call collect from anywhere in the world at 1-613-996-8885.

In the USA  if you are facing or fleeing a forced marriage, or know someone who is, please visit preventforcedmarriage.orgto get help.

preferably before you leave:

  • your contact information abroad, including the address where you will be staying and the names of those with whom you will be staying, as well as their relationship to you
  • a photocopy of your passport photo page and birth certificate
  • a recent photograph of yourself
  • your itinerary, there and back (anticipated travel details, flight information, return date) and names of people travelling with you
  • try to bring a mobile device where you can contact your Embassy or friends back home.

-write a letter back home even if you don’t have have a stamp.

-write a letter to a friend, school, police with a fax number and try to ask for a business or hotel to send it.  You will have to pay for the fax.

This is solely my suggestion:   If on the plane, you have been told that you will be married in the country’s destination.  When going through customs – yell, that you have a bomb or a gun.   The customs will have to act – and when in police custody, you can explain your case.  If your parents state that you are mentally unwell, give the name of your family doctor to prove otherwise.

Paula here.   Let’s face it, you or I could not park our car outside of Trump Tower.  There are security guards and police armed with automatic machine guns.  That orange bus, even though it has hateful transgender slogans, could be a terrorist bus in disguise!   Yet, Trump’s people and national security, allowed it to park.   It had Trump’s approval!  Now, Americans can claim “free speech” as part of their Constitution, but Trump could have denied the bus parking space.  He could have distanced himself – that is HIS Constitutional Right!

The NON – Jesus Bus

Instead of a bus with social slogans – peaceful slogans, this bus was bought and funded by Christians who hate their neighbour.

Wow, imagine if this bus had peace signs:  “Americans chose love over Hate.”      “Americans Care for the Poor.”   “Americans Equality and Justice for ALL.”

The Hate Bus

Their slogans – “Boys will always be  boys!”   “Girls will always be girls!”      Anyone with just ONE brain would know that this is not true – medically and scientifically.  But these same people will ignore the March 2016 declaration to the UN and world leaders written by the World Psychiatric Association.   This scientific body, composed of 182 countries, declared that since homosexuality cannot be reversed, it is therefore NOT A CHOICE.

Where are the priorities of these right-wing Christians.   Firstly, in my opinion, they are NOT Christians.   Jesus even chastised or warned his disciples to see him in EVERYONE.    He tells his disciples that they did not see him.   And when they are shocked, he replies that he was in the hungry, poor, prisoner, widow, orphan and the lonely and downtrodden.   He even used a Samaritan in the Parable of the Good Samaritan to show the HERO was an “unclean” outcast in Jewish society.  Now, that approximately  20 million will be taken off Medicare and have no health insurance – why are there not buses protesting this by “Christians.:”?

Good Samaritan – the outcast who loved more than the Jewish priests who walked by the man attacked by robbers

Jesus never dealt with the issue of transgender.   There are so many cases of children “knowing” at a very early age that their genitals do not fit who they are in their mind.   All I can conclude with is the shortest sentence in the Bible, “Jesus wept.:

Beauty And The Beast Smashes the US Box Office to set weekend record

Disney Company ignores criticism from ultra right-wing Christians and Muslims.  In the first weekend run, it now claims to the the seventh biggest opening of all time!    Way to go – Disney!  There are more people in this world that acknowledge that sexual orientation includes – heterosexual, homosexual and transpersons.

The Money Rolls in

New live-action Disney movie Beauty and the Beast has set a box office record on its opening weekend. The movie, which opened in most global territories on Friday, took $170million (€158million) at the US box office alone – a record amount for a March opening.  Usually huge figures are associated with summer months or Christmas viewing.

Previous Records

The previous March record was held by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which took $166million in its opening weekend last year.

Beauty’s opening even beats the final instalment of the final Harry Potter movie, which took $169million in its opening weekend in 2011 (both it and Beauty star British actress Emma Watson)

The success of Beauty and the Beast comes despite mixed lukewarm reviews (70% on Rotten Tomatoes) and controversy over the inclusion of a gay character.

Kudos to Director of the Film

Le Fou

Director Bill Condon has described the decision to show Gaston’s personal manservant, LeFou (played Josh Gad) as having a crush on his villainous boss as ‘subtle’. Some Christian groups in the USA were upset and foreign distributors were cautious.

In Russia, the film recieved an adult rating according to some sources, but others have hinted that it will be banned.

The film is not being released in Malaysia after the government there demanded that scenes alluding to the LeFou’s sexuality be cut.

Disney refused and said it would not release the film in the country in censored form.  Chinese showing was strong without the film being uncensored.

.

Beauty and the Beast Number One Around the
World

Outside the US, the film took $180million (€167million) from 44 markets (racking up a cumulative gross of $350million/€325million).

It opened at number one in every market except Turkey, Vietnam and India. Outside the US, its biggest opening was the UK, where it took $22.8million.

In the US, the film’s appeal cut across all demographic groups, with 22% of the audience being children under 12.

For LGBT kids, this film will be important.

For Girls: Air India’s All Female Flight Crew

 

International Women’s Day is held every year on March 8th.  This happens because girls and women do not have the same rights and opportunities in many countries.  You may be aware that Malala, a Pakistani girl, was shot in the head just for going to school.

                          Malala

Air India and an All-Women Crew

On March 5, 2017, Air India decided to do something very special for International Women’s Day.  A plane was flown from India to California and back to India by four female pilots and a crew of all women.  In fact, this plane flew around the world.  Here are the four women pilots:

       The four female pilots of the huge plane

This Was Not a Small Plane

This is one of the biggest planes in the world.  It had to show that women pilots could do the job.  In fact, everything about the flight was operated by women.  There were:

1) Women Engineers that checked the engines

2). Women who fuelled the plane

3) Women traffic controllers around the world who made sure the plane took off and landed at various places

 

The Long Flight that Went Around the World.

When you look at a flat map – you can see the flight that started in India and flew to California.    But, in reality, pilots take a global route that looks like this….flights are often over the north pole.

 

This is NOT a Competition Between Females and Males

If you are a boy reading this, try and understand that it is not a competition.  Girls and boys are equal – both have good brains, but unfortunately, in many parts of the world – boys get better education and better chances to do things.  This all female flight was to encourage girls around the world to fulfill their dreams.  Like boys, girls can go to school and become doctors, lawyers, scientists, pilots, engineers, inventors, writers, sports stars.

And to the girls – hope you enjoyed this article.  And dream – and study and become who you want to be NOW and in the future.

UnknownUnknownFirst of all, let me wish you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day for March 17th.  Depending on which side of the International Date Line that you live, you either wore green yesterday or you are wearing it today.  If you don’t wear green – shame on you! LOL.  There are three patron saints of Ireland, St. Patrick, St. Brigid and St. Columba.

St. Patrick (short version)

 Saint Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the “Apostle of Ireland. The exact location of his birth is unknown, but he was born around 387 AD in the United Kingdom of Great Britain.  His given name was Maewyn Succat and speculation has it that he was born in Wales.  He was a Roman.  He brought Christianity to Ireland.  To explain the mystery of the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit), Patrick used a shamrock.  There were three leaves, but one plant and he equated this to the Trinity.  It is said that he drove the snakes out of Ireland. (There are no snakes in Ireland).  He loved the Irish and died in Ireland.  The wearing of the green is symbolic of the shamrock.  Whether he drank green beer is another matter!

St. Brigid

Brigid was a faithful companion to Patrick.  She is an equally powerful saint, but since Christianity has been dominated by males, she often takes second place.  Early Irish Christianity welcomed Brigid and she became powerful in her own right. She taught and became a bishop and ordained priests.  When the Vatican became involved, women could not longer become priests in Ireland.  Now, I’m interested in Brigid for two reasons: one she was a powerful and spiritual woman and secondly, she slept in the same bed with her female companion (and lover) Darlughdach.

Brigid and Darlughdach 640 px by Lewgalon EtcThe following information has been taken from JESUS IN LOVE BLOG.  I have not altered a word.

Saint Brigid and her soulmate Darlughdach were sixth-century Irish nuns who brought art, education and spirituality to early medieval Ireland. Brigid (c.451-525) shares her name and feast day (Feb. 1) with a Celtic goddess — and she may have been the last high priestess of the goddess Brigid.

Raised by Druids, Brigid seems to have made a smooth transition from being a pagan priestess to a Christian abbess. Today she is Ireland’s most famous female saint. Her name is also spelled Bridget.  Legend says that when she made her final vows as a nun, the bishop in charge was so overcome by the Holy Spirit that he administered the rite for ordaining a (male) bishop instead.

A younger nun named Darlughdach served as Brigid’s ambassador and her “anam cara” or soul friend. The two women were so close that they slept in the same bed. Like many Celtic saints, Brigid believed that each person needs a soul friend to discover together that God speaks most powerfully in the seemingly mundane details of shared daily life. The love between these two women speaks to today’s lesbians and their allies. Some say that Brigid and Darlughdach are lesbian saints.

Brigid started convents all over Ireland and became the abbess of the “double monastery” (housing both men and women) at Kildare. Built on land that was previously sacred to her divine namesake, the monastery included an art school for creating illuminated manuscripts.

After Brigid turned 70, she warned Darlughdach that she expected to die soon. Her younger soulmate begged to die at the same time. Brigid wanted her to live another year so she could succeed her as abbess. Brigid died of natural causes on Feb. 1, 525. The bond between the women was so close that Darlughdach followed her soulmate in death exactly one year later on Feb. 1, 526.

Both Christians and pagans celebrate St. Brigid’s Day on Feb. 1. It is also known as Imbolc, a spring festival when the goddess Brigid returns as the bride of spring in a role similar to the Greek Persephone. People still celebrate her day by weaving twigs into a square “Brigid’s Cross,” an ancient solar symbol traditionally made to welcome spring.

Brigid’s main symbol was fire, representing wisdom, poetry, healing and metallurgy. The nuns at the Kildare monastery kept a perpetual fire burning in Brigid’s memory for more than a thousand years — until 1540 when it was extinguished in Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries.

The Order of St. Brigid was reestablished in 1807. Two Brigidine sisters returned to Kildare and relit the fire in the market square for the first time in more than 400 years on Feb. 1, 1993. The perpetual flame is now kept at the Solas Bhride (Brigid’s Light) Celtic Spirituality Center that they founded there. In addition, anyone may sign up to tend St. Brigid’s flame in their own homes through the Ord Brighideach Order of Flame Keepers.

Two Celtic Christian artists based in Germany collaborated on the sensuously spiritual portrait of Brigid and Darlughdach at the top of this post. On the left is Darlughdach, painted as a fiery redhead by Rowan Lewgalon, and on the right is fair-haired Brighid, painted by Tricia Danby. Lewgalon and Danby are both clerics in the Old Catholic Apostolic Church as well as spiritual artists whose work is online at tir-anam.weebly.com.

Lentz, Brigid & Darlughdach
“Saints Brigid and Darlughdach of Kildare”
By Brother Robert Lentz, OFM. © 1999

Brigid and Darlughdach are shown with their arms around each other in the above icon by Brother Robert Lentz. He is a Franciscan friar and world-class iconographer known for his progressive icons. The two women are dressed in the white gowns worn by Druid priestesses and Celtic nuns. Flames burn above them and on the mandala of Christ that they carry. It is one of 40 icons featured in his book Christ in the Margins.

The icon was commissioned by the Living Circle, a Chicago-based interfaith spirituality center for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community and their friends. Four Living Circle members took the original icon to Kildare with them in 2000 for the flame-lighting ceremony at the recently excavated site of Brigid’s ancient fire temple.

Dennis O’Neill, the priest who founded the Living Circle, includes the icon and an in-depth biography of Brigid and Darlughdach in his book “Passionate Holiness: Marginalized Christian Devotions for Distinctive People.”

Brigid’s spirit of fun and hospitality is expressed in her reputation for loving beer. She made beer for the poor every Easter. In a well known poem attributed to Brigid, she envisioned heaven as a great lake of beer. Here are some of the words to St. Brigid’s Prayer, as translated and performed by Irish singer Noirin Ni Riain:

I’d sit with the men, the women of God
There by the lake of beer
We’d be drinking good health forever
And every drop would be a prayer.

There is an interesting book about Ireland’s Most Popular Female Saint.

Rosie O’Donnell and Trump have been feuding.  He called her ‘a pig.’  This was a very gentleman expression.  However, when interviewed some years ago, he was asked if he respected women.  Donald replied, “I can’t say I do.”

Rosie Speaks

‘This is not Russia,’ O’Donnell  said in a rally near The White House.  The rally was  billed as A Resistance Address: Defending American Values in a Time of Moral Crisis.

‘To Donald Trump and his pathetic band of white, privileged criminal businessmen, I would like to say to him, “nyet, sir.”‘

Rosie traveled from her home in New York City to Washington DC to deliver her thoughts personally.

The actress and former talk show host called upon the media to more aggressively call Trump out when he says things that are not true.

 

‘He lies, he lies, he lies,’ she said. ‘And it’s about time they all started saying that, instead of, “It appears as if he hasn’t been speaking the truth.” Cut it down to the least common denominator like he does.’

Running for President

During the first Republican presidential debate in August 2015, moderator Megyn Kelly asked Trump about his various insults aimed at women over the years.

‘You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals,’ Kelly began before being interrupted by Trump who said: ‘Only Rosie O’Donnell.’

Said O’Donnell at the rally: ‘He has degraded and bullied women his entire life and career. This is America. It is not yours. It is not corporately owned. It is of the people, by the people, and for the people. And we the people will not stand for it.’

             Way to Go -Regan

A young golfer who is the first out lesbian Filipino golfer will join the professional ranks this year after facing years of bullying because of her sexuality. Regan de Guzman will play the coveted competition after playing well in the 2016 LGPA Qualifying Tournament.

The 25-year-old is the fourth woman from the Philippines full LPGA Tour and is doing so at a remarkably young age.

‘It hasn’t really hit me that I made it to the LPGA,’ de Guzman said in a video.

‘I realised I have to keep working hard, I have to work harder than before because this is the longer road.

‘Everything really inspires me, everyone does.’

De Guzman recently graduated from San Jose State University in California where she had a full golf scholarship.

In her rookie year De Guzman will play a number of tournaments in the United States over the coming months.

The Talented Lesbian

Not content with being a prodigious golfer, De Guzman plays guitar, piano, billiards and is a certified scuba diver.

When she was 14 she gave up a promising gymnastics career after she felt she was missing out on her childhood.

Her grandfather, dad and mom all used to play golf and she was curious about the sport.

‘I fell in love with it and told my mom that I wanted to play in America. She said it was expensive and that I’d need to get an athletic scholarship.

‘Getting that scholarship became my mission and I accomplished it.’

She would like to use her position to empower young golf players in the Philippines and around the world.

De Guzman faced years of bullying because of her sexuality and believes her story of overcoming discrimination will be an inspiration to other young women.

Straight men raping lesbians is rampant in South Africa and other countries.  This is the rape by a father on his daughter after she sought his help.  She was struggling with her “identity” which may have meant she was struggling with what would happen if she told this man.The father was found guilty of three charges of rape, nine of indecent assault, plus one act of indecency with a child during the 1980s and 90s.  He was sentenced to 21 years in jail.  He is 54 years of age.   These three rape charges occurred during the 1980s and 90s, but now in 2017 the man was found guilty of all these charges.

 

The court heard that the 54-year-old brute attacked his 16-year-old daughter, who he had groomed since the age of 11, after she told him she was “struggling with her identity.”  My interpretation is that this revelation insulted his male sex ego – as he had had sex with her older sister for years.

My First Reaction:

When handing down the ruling, Judge Andrew Lockhart said: ‘As a 16-year-old girl she realised she was gay and, struggling with her identity as many people do at that age, she decided to tell you.

‘You reacted by showing real and uncontrolled anger, and you decided to rape her to show her why it would be better to have sex with men than women.‘Her evidence made harrowing listening.‘That rape involved degradation and humiliation.The offence demonstrated your hostility towards her as a lesbian,’ Judge Lockhart said.

In order to protect the identity of the child, the father’s name is not public information.

Paula comments:

I was shocked to read a comment from a man living in India.  He could only respond with the fact that ‘you can’t call a woman gay’ and LOL.   This is my response to him.

Rape is for power. Rape comes from an insecure person who gains his power over a weaker opponent. This is the most inhuman way to treat another person. In wars, this is the way to humiliate your enemy by raping the old, women and children. It is violent and does terrible physical damage to the body of the victim. While the body may heal from this violation – the mind does not. The victim becomes afraid of the dark, noise and other men. It is very hard for a rape victim to have normal relationships with men again. In most cases, the woman also gets bruised, kicked and beaten up. This could happen to your wife, daughters, family members – be a man who protects and respects women. In private societies, gang rape against lesbians to change their sexuality is not unusual. It is the same primitive thinking that has men rape children because in their ignorance they believe that a child can cure Aids/HIV. I will give you a second chance to respond with deep regret for this woman.

And to Men………..

1. Don’t put drugs in women’s drinks.

2. When you see a woman walking by herself, leave her alone.

3. If you pull over to help a woman whose car has broken down, remember not to rape her.

4. If you are in an elevator and a women gets in, don’t rape her.

5. When you encounter a woman who is asleep, the safest course of action is to not rape her.

6. Never creep into a woman’s home through an unlocked door or window, or spring out at her from between parked cars, or rape her.

7. Remember, people go to the laundry room to do their laundry. Do not attempt to molest someone who is alone in a laundry room.

8. Use the Buddy System! If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from raping women, ask a trusted friend to accompany you at all times.

9. Carry a rape whistle. If you find that you are about to rape someone, blow the whistle until someone comes to stop you.

10. Dont forget: Honesty is the best policy. When asking a woman out on a date, don’t pretend that you are interested in her as a person; tell her straight up that you expect to be raping her later. If you don’t communicate your intentions, the woman may take it as a sign that you do not plan to rape her.

Every time Kelly Ann Conway speaks – I laugh.   I am not in the habit of laughing at people -but, the way that Kelly Ann lies is hilarious.  This is an Oxford graduate and lawyer.  In any other situation, she would look competent, but working for Trump – she looks stupid and incompetent.  Put another way, Kelly Ann thinks everyone is stupid enough to believe what comes out of her mouth.

Here are some cartoons.

Now that the bill has been passed in 2017, by  USA lawmakers, and signed into law by Trump,

Republicans in the majority – vote to allow the mentally insane to own guns

a person who is insane can buy a gun.  It should never have taken place.  Back in 2012 a woman with paranoid schizophrenia was sold a gun which she later turned on her father.  He died.  This story takes place in the state of Missouri in 2012.

                       Missouri in red

 

The 2012 Gun Death by an Insane Person

In 2012,  Janet Delana, the mother of a paranoid schizophrenic, phoned the police and the FBI trying to stop a gun store that had previously provided her daughter with a gun.  Colby,  daughter of the Delana couple,  had been in and out of mental hospitals.  Janet phoned the store manager and explained that the last time Colby had a gun she had tried to kill herself.  Her father had taken away the gun.  This phone call was about two hours before Colby walked in and purchased the gun. The seller stated he did not put the phone call to the person he sold the gun to.  The question is, wouldn’t you remember a mother pleading of you to not sell a gun and describing what her daughter looked like.  Janet said that the gun store made $60 profit from that sale.  She lost a husband of forty years.  Her daughter is in a mental institution.

Colby Sue Weathers was mentally ill, but she had never been identified as a threat to herself or others by a judge or ordered to an extended mental hospital stay — which meant she could pass the background check for her gun.

Growing Up With Guns

Colby grew up with a dad that cleaned guns on his porch.  His wife, Janet, enjoyed practise shooting when she was dating him. Delana does not want guns taken away from people.

 
How Did The Gun Possession Madness Start?
The NRA is a powerful lobby group with lots of money.  Each time a politician furthers their cause a cheque is sent.  This is public record.

On gun regulations, a partisan divide:

• The House and Senate voted largely along party lines in February 2017 to get rid of Obama administration regulations aimed at blocking mentally ill people from passing federal background checks for gun purchases. President Trump signed the measure, HJ Res 40, rescinding the rules on Feb. 28.

• The rules had required the Social Security Administration to share information with the FBI about those receiving federal disability payments because of a mental illness — and unable to manage their finances — to ensure that their names were flagged in firearms dealers’ routine background checks.

• The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act provides unique legal protections for firearms manufacturers, distributors and retailers. Passed by Congress in 2005, the law bars most civil lawsuits seeking to hold the industry accountable after the products it sells are misused, including in mass shootings.

• Supporters of the law say it has prevented frivolous lawsuits and includes exceptions for knowingly illegal sales. Opponents say those exceptions are narrow. Efforts to change or repeal the law, including last year, have not gained traction in a Republican-controlled Congress.

Even if her daughter had previously been deemed a threat by a judge, Delana has learned, there was no guarantee a background check would have caught that exclusion. The federal background-check system that is used to prevent convicted felons from buying guns is missing scores of state health records that would also flag and disqualify those who are seriously mentally ill.

Regulations finalized late in the Obama administration, but overturned in February with President Trump’s signature, extended restrictions on gun purchases to people who receive a federal disability payment because of mental illness and also have that check sent to someone who manages their financial matters.

But, Delana also has learned, if the Obama regulations had been in place when Weathers bought her weapon, they would not have barred her purchase because she received and managed her own Social Security disability checks.

 

The gun store settled out of court for 2 million dollars – that way, nobody is to ‘blame.’  Really, tell that to Tex, the father who lies in the grave.

Paula here:  I started my research by finding 11 Inventions by women on the Huffington Post – then I found many more inventions on Fact Monster.   I added images for the Huffington report.

Here are just a few things you might not have known were invented by women: from http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/entry/11-crucial-inventions-you-can-thank-women-for_us_56d51097e4b0bf0dab3349e0      

1. Beer, Thanks to lots of women!

  

 

We don’t actually know the individual who first created beer, but according to research conducted by historian Jane Peyton, for thousands of years brewing beer was a woman’s domain. According a 2010 Telegraph piece: “Nearly 7,000 years ago in Mesopotamia and Sumeria, so important were [women’s] skills that they were the only ones allowed to brew the drink or run any taverns.”  Paula’s comments: Ironically, this area now forbids alcohol for Muslims.

2. The Square-Bottomed Paper BagMargaret Knight

Margaret Knight realized that paper bags without square bottoms weren’t all that useful, so she invented a machine to cut and attach flat bottoms to bags. Before she could patent the iron version of her machine, a man named Charles Annan stole her design, claiming that no woman could think of something so complex. Knight filed a lawsuit against him and proved that the prototype was in fact hers. She gained the patent in 1871.

3. Dishwasher, Josephine Cochrane

In 1886, socialite Josephine Cochrane was annoyed that her servants kept breaking her china. So, she invented the first workable dishwasher

 

4. The Fire Escape, Anna Connelly 

The first outdoor fire escape with an external staircase was patented by Anna Connellyin 1897. In the 1900s, Connelly’s model would become part of many mandatory building safety codes across the United States.

5. Monopoly, Elizabeth Magie

Monopoly, originally called The Landlord’s Game, was invented by Elizabeth Magie in 1903. Magie was inspired to create The Landlord’s Game “to demonstrate the tragic effects of land-grabbing.”

6. Windshield Wiper, Mary Anderson

In 1903, Mary Anderson noticed drivers stopping to clear snow and ice off their windshields. She came up with the windshield wiper — an arm with a rubber blade that could be activated without getting out of your car. She applied for a patent in 1904, and it was issued in 1905.

7. Chocolate Chip Cookies, Ruth Wakefield

In 1930, Ruth Wakefield, who owned a lodge named the Toll House Inn, was making cookies for guests and realized that she was out of baker’s chocolate. She broke up pieces of a Nestle semi-sweet chocolate bar, thinking that the chocolate would mix in and melt during baking, but it didn’t.

8. The Solar Heated Home, Dr. Maria Telkes

Dr. Maria Telkes worked at MIT on the university’s Solar Energy Research Project. In the 1940s, she developed the first solar-heated home with architect Eleanor Raymond.

9. Computer Software, Grace Hopper

Dr Grace Murray Hopper, a computer scientist, invented COBOL, the first user-friendly business computer software program in the 1950s. In 1969, she was awarded the first ever Computer Science Man of the Year Award.

10. Kevlar, Stephanie Kwolek

Stephanie Kwolek’s research with chemical compounds for the DuPont Company led her to invent Kevlar — the material used in bulletproof vests — which was patented in 1966.

11. Stem Cell Isolation, Ann Tsukamoto

Ann Tsukamoto is one of two people who got a patent in 1991 for a process to isolate the human stem cell. Her work has led to advancements in comprehending the blood systems of cancer patients and could eventually lead to a cure.

8 Inventions By Women That Changed The World

Do you like beer? And fire escapes? Thank a woman.

commons.wikimedia.org / Via Hannah Jewell

1. The car heater

Magnus Manske via commons.wikimedia.org(8516891322).jpg

The first car heater, which directed air from over the engine to warm the chilly toes of aristocratic 19th-century motorists, was invented by Margaret A. Wilcox in 1893. She also invented a combined clothes and dish washer, which someone should please build immediately.

2. Monopoly

One of the most famous board games of all time, responsible for endless hours of wholesome family fun and/or devastating family arguments, was invented by Elizabeth Magie in 1904 under the original name The Landlord’s Game. Magie’s game was a critique of the injustices of unchecked capitalism, making it all the more ironic when her game was completely ripped off by Charles Darrow 30 years later, who sold it to Parker Brothers. The firm eventually tracked down Magie and paid her $500 for her troubles.

3. The fire escape

Derek Jensen

This device, so vital both to public safety and the smoking habits of urban hipsters, was invented in 1887 by Anna Connelly.

4. The life raft

One day in 1882, Maria Beasely looked out at the sea and said, “People should, like, stop dying in huge transportation disasters.” And then she invented life rafts. Beasely also invented a machine for making barrels, and it made her really fucking rich.

5. Residential solar heating

“Solar One”, the first solar-heated home.

commons.wikimedia.org

Physicist and solar-power pioneer Dr. Maria Telkes teamed up with an equally badass lady, the architect Eleanor Raymond, to build the first home entirely heated by solar power in 1947.

6. The medical syringe

Thinkstock

Oh, the wonders of modern medicine. In 1899, Letitia Geer invented a medical syringe that could be operated with only one hand. Remember her the next time your doctor injects you with only one hand.

7. The modern electric refrigerator

ThinkStock

Florence Parpart invented the modern electric refrigerator in 1914. In 1900, Parpart also received a patent for a vastly improved street-cleaning machine, which she marketed and sold to cities across America, because she was incredibly badass.

8. The ice cream maker

Thinkstock

Nancy Johnson invented the ice cream freezer in 1843, patenting a design which is still used to the current day, even after the advent of electric ice cream makers. Thank you, Nancy Johnson. Thank you.

9. The computer algorithm

Ada Lovelace, whose father was Lord Byron, was encouraged by her scientist mother from a young age to become a fucking champion of mathematics. Lovelace worked with Charles Babbage at the University of London on his plans for an “analytic engine” (i.e. old-timey computer) to develop ways to program the machine with mathematical algorithms, essentially making her “the first computer programmer”.

10. More telecommunications technology than you could shake a stick at

Janette Pellegrini / Getty

The theoretical physicist Dr Shirley Jackson was the first black woman to receive a Ph.D. from MIT, in 1973. While working at Bell Laboratories, she conducted breakthrough basic scientific research that enabled others to invent the portable fax, touch tone telephone, solar cells, fiber optic cables, and the technology behind caller ID and call waiting.

11. The dishwasher

Saving untold marriages over the last century and a half, the dishwasher was invented by Josephine Cochrane in 1887. She marketed her invention to hotel owners, scandalously going to meetings without a husband, brother, or father to escort her, and eventually opened her own factory.

12. Wireless transmissions technology

Hedy Lamarr’s invention of a secret communications system during World War II for radio-controlling torpedoes, employing “frequency hopping” technology, laid the technological foundations for everything from Wi-Fi to GPS. She also happened to be a world-famous film star.

13. CCTV

Marie Van Brittan Brown’s system for closed-circuit television security, patented in 1969, was intended to help people ensure their own security, as police were slow to respond to calls for help in her New York City neighbourhood. Her invention forms the basis for modern CCTV systems used for home security and police work today.

14. The paper bag as you know it

Margaret Knight received her patent for a machine that could produce square-bottomed bags in 1871, after a long legal battle with a fellow machinist, Charles Anan, who tried to steal her work by arguing that such a brilliant invention could not possibly have been invented by a girl. That gentleman has thankfully been forgotten by history. Also, when Knight was 12 years old, she invented a safety device for cotton mills which is still used today.

15. Central heating

Every time you feel grateful that you don’t have to run around your house in the winter, desperately adding fuel to each room’s individual fireplace to fight back the bitter, bitter cold, think of Alice Parker, who invented a system of gas-powered central heating in 1919. While her particular design was never built, it was the first time an inventor had conceived of using natural gas to heat a personal home, and inspired the central heating systems of the future.

16. Kevlar

Thinkstock

The chemist Stephanie Kwolek invented the super-strong Kevlar fibre, used to make bulletproof vests. Kwolek’s invention is five times stronger than steel, and also has about 200 other uses.

17. Computer software

Dr Grace Murray Hopper, a rear admiral in the U.S. navy, was also a computer scientist who invented COBOL, “the first user-friendly business computer software program”. She was also the first person to use to term “bug” to describe a glitch in a computer system, after finding an actual moth causing trouble in her computer.

18. Beer

It’s a bit hard to see, but these ancient Sumerians are SO drunk right now.

Harriet Williams

Oh, what’s that, bro? You’re just enjoying a bottle of delicious, super-manly beer? Guess what! Beer is totally a girl’s drink. Beer historian Jane Peyton claims that ancient Mesopotamian women were the first to develop, sell, and even drink beer. While it may be hard to pin down exactly who, thousands of years ago, “invented” the beer we know and love today, it’s safe to say that ancient women all over the world were sure as hell fermenting something. So next time you raise a glass, make a toast to Ninkasi, the Sumerian goddess of brewing and beer!

Some truck drivers were making their way through Botswana when a baby elephant suddenly appeared out of the bushes by the side of the road. The drivers from AfriAg transport company in Johannesburg, South Africa stopped due to a downed bridge in their path when the animal showed up. The men immediately realized that the elephant was terribly thirsty. They let the baby animal drink out of one of their own bottles, and started scanning the horizon for the elephant’s mother and his herd. Unfortunately, he was all by himself…

The drivers put the animal into their truck, and, once the bridge was fixed, dropped him off at at the nearest sanctuary. “According to our information, the baby was taken to Botswana Elephant Sanctuary,” Paul Oxton, founder and director of Wild Heart Wildlife Foundation, told The Dodo Magazine.. “In our opinion Botswana as a whole has one of the most remarkable, ethical and compassionate wildlife conservation strategies in the world… Because of the efficacy of the nationwide strategy, we trust that this baby will get the very best treatment and care possible.”

In a quest to set a new world record, Air India has operated a flight around the world with an all-women crew ahead of International Women’s Day (March 8)

The flight which departed from here on February 27 for San Francisco, returned at the Indira Gandhi International airport today after flying across the globe.

The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200LR, flew over the Pacific last week on its journey to San Francisco, while the return flight flew over the Atlantic, encircling the globe, Air India said today.

An Air India spokesperson said the airline has already applied for a Guinness World Record and Limca Book of Records for this feat.

Air India is the first Indian carrier to operate on the Pacific route which has reduced the flying time by up to three hours.

Apart from the cockpit and cabin crew, check-in and ground handling staff, and engineers who certified the aircraft were all women, Air India said.

It added that the Air Traffic Controllers who cleared the departure and arrival of the aircraft were also women.

As part of the celebrations on International Women’s Day which is observed on March 8 every year, the flag carrier has also decided to operate similar flights on its domestic and other international routes.

Paula here:  While I can get photos of the four captains and names, I cannot guarantee that the name is under the correct woman.

I found more information:  The flight covered  9,500 milch and Gunjan Aggarwales (15,300 km).  The captains who shared the piloting were – not necessary in order of this photo: Captains Sunita Narula, Kshamta Bajpai, Indira Singh.  Leading the cabin crew were stewardesses Seema Baberwal and Nishrin Bandulwala.

Well done everyone.  Paula

A MAN raped his gay teenage daughter to “show her” that sex with men was better, a court in England has been told.

The father, 54, brutally attacked the 16-year-old girl after she confided in him that she was “struggling with her identity”, The Mirror reports.

The judge presiding over the case in the Warwick Crown Court told the defendant the victim’s evidence “made harrowing listening”.

“As a 16-year-old girl she realised she was gay and, struggling with her identity as many people do at that age, she decided to tell you,” he said.

“You reacted by showing real and uncontrolled anger, and you decided to rape her to show her why it would be better to have sex with men than women. Her evidence made harrowing listening.

“That rape involved degradation and humiliation. The offence demonstrated your hostility towards her as a lesbian.”

The judge hearing the case said the victim’s evidence “made harrowing listening”.

The father was also convicted of raping his other daughter during two decades of sexual abuse, The Mirror reports..

Judge Andrew Lockhart QC told the brute: “The court heard from both of these two women. They have both been severely psychologically damaged by your behaviour.

“Listening to (one of the victim’s) evidence of her feeling of guilt at leaving her sister to face you was the most harrowing of evidence.”

 

 

The judge ordered the rapist serve 21 years in jail after being found guilty of three rapes during the 1980s and 90s. He was also ordered to serve an additional five years in jail and to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Umbrella Revolution, Hong Kong 2015

 In countries where there is bigotry and discrimination against minority groups, those countries will suffer economically, socially and spiritually.

This is the case with Hong Kong. Assistant Professor of Gender Studies, Dr. Suen Yiu-tung has conducted studies to prove the point.  Dr. Yiu-tung has stated that ‘sexual migration’ – the international relocation motivated, directly or indirectly by sexuality – is going to hurt Hong Kong.

Suen argued Hong Kong was risking losing some of its brightest population if it did not create protections against discrimination.

Umbrella Revolution of 2015 – Tent Cities

Paula here.  I just happened to be in Hong Kong during the “Umbrella Revolution.”  The protests, which involved ‘tent cities’ disrupted traffic in this bustling city.  May ‘tent cities’ had young LGBTI protestors.  Unlike the mainland, Hong Kong (under British rule) was a vibrant democracy.  It is hard to put a muzzle on people who have had freedom of speech and movement.   955 people were arrested, and 1,900 people filed complaints against the police. Protesters fought off violent thugs (who had appeared mysteriously at night, their faces covered), got faces full of pepper spray and lungs full of tear gas.

Over two months, they had adapted their lives to the realities of long-term protest — finishing homework in tents, working during the day and moving in and out of the camp with the rhythm of the metro trains. I was there at Christmas time and rejoiced to find religious leaders and congregations singing some Christian carols – with some words changed to reflect their solidarity with democracy.

University of Hong Kong Study

Dr. Seun Yui-tung

Prof. Suen conducted research in 2016, which revealied 39% of LGB people in Hong Kong had thought about leaving because of the lack anti-discrimination laws.

48% had considered leaving because same-sex marriage was not and 26% had considered leaving because of the difficulties facing same-sex partners who wanted children.

His survey also discovered that those who had considered emigrating were talented, young and well educated.

‘It means that Hong Kong may be driving a significant proportion of the young and well-educated LGB workforce away because of the government’s failure to provide legal protection and recognition for them,’ Suen wrote

‘The phrase “brain drain” rings a bell.

‘The way Hong Kong tackles issue of rights for same-sex couples will test its claim to be Asia’s World City

‘If these LGB people do indeed emigrate from Hong Kong, there will be negative consequences for the city.

‘Social scientists, city planners and policymakers have extended the argument that diversity and creativity are basic drivers of innovation and regional and national growth.’

Same-sex relationships are not recognized in Hong Kong. Same-sex marriages from overseas are also not recognized.

Suen hoped Hong Kong’s Chief Exceutive John Tsang Chun-wah’s plan to encourage people to stay would also involve creating a more more inclusive place for LGB people.

Some Information about Prof. Suen

Dr. Suen

Prof. Suen’s academic writings can be found published or forthcoming in such journals as Journal of Homosexuality, Sociological Research Online, Sexual and Relationship Therapy, Higher Education Research and Development, Social Theory and Health, and others.
His co-edited book (with Andrew King, Kathryn Almack and Sue Westwood) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Ageing: Minding the Knowledge Gaps is under contract with Routledge (London). He serves on the Editorial Board of Journal of Men’s Studies (Sage), and the Associate Editorial Board of Sociological Research Online (Sage).

Prof. Suen serves as the Vice-chairperson and the youngest board member of AIDS Concern Hong Kong, the first non-government organization working on HIV/AIDS issues set up in Hong Kong 25 years ago.

He has been frequently invited to speak in various conferences and events on LGBT issues addressing a wide range of audiences including policy makers, business leaders, lawyers, health care professionals, service providers, secondary school and university students, and social activists.

After dogs and cats, budgies are the next favourite pet.  They are sweet and gentle.  As a kid, I always had a couple.  I did not want one as I felt it would get lonely.  My budgie called Joey was a good speaker.

 

The  budgerigar or budgie is a member of the parakeet family.  They live in the driest parts of Australia.  Did you know that they are naturally green and yellow, but breeding has given them many colours?

The first budgies were recorded in 1805, but the originial people of Australia (Aborigines) had known about them for many years.

Size and Weight

Wild budgies are around 18 cm (7 in) long and weight 30-40 grams (1.-1.4 oz).

Have You Noticed blue-violet cheek patches and a series of black spots across each side of their throat?

Is it a Male or a Female?

Blue across the top of a beak indicates male

                   male and female

Flaking brown across the top of the beak  indicates a female.

If the budgie is six months or older, it is easy to tell its sex. Look at the colours on the top of his beak.  If the colour is blue, it is a male. If the colour is brown, it is a female.

Dating

                   Kissy, Kissy

When humans go on a date, they dress in nice clothes.  Budgies have an ultraviolet spectrum that brightens their feathers.  Budgies show that they are in love by chewing seeds and putting this meal in their partner’s mouth.  Female birds can lay up to eight eggs.  Eggs take about 18–20 days before they start hatching. The hatchlings – blind, naked, unable to lift their head, and totally helpless, and their mother feeds them and keeps them warm constantly. Around 10 days of age, the chicks’ eyes will open, and they will start to develop  feathers that are down.  Where Do Budgies Live in the Wild?

The blue shows where budgies live in the wild

Budgies are rarely seen in cities.  They love wide open space especially where humans are not living.  They live in the Australian scrublands,* open woodlands and grasslands. (Scrublands have little grass ).  They are nomadic, which means that they don’t necessarily live in just one place.  They move on.

Budgies are friendly and love to live in small flocks, but sometimes they will join other flocks and the sky is filled with these beautiful birds.   Budgies, like most animals and birds, like to live where there is food and water.  If food or water runs out, budgies will come closer to places where people live.

What Do Budgies Eat?

In the wild, Budgies eat the seeds of the spinifex plant, grass seeds and sometimes wheat that is ripe.  Budgies that are owned by humans are twice the size of wild budgies.

How Did They Get Their Name?

Some people think the word ‘budgerigar’ came from the aboroginal word “gid-jirr-i-gaa meaning “good.”  Other people think it is two aboriginal words “budgery” meaning “good” and “gar” meaning cockatoo.

Keeping a Budgie as a Pet

Water and good should be changed every day.  The floor of the cage should also be changed regularly.  This will keep the budgie healthy.   Budgies love to play and they should have a mirror, play things and lots of attention from people.   Keep the music low and don’t speak too loud near them.  They have little ears.   Speak the same words in a gentle manner.  Have two birds as budgies like to live in flocks and need company.  Give them cuttlebone as a good mineral and to sharpen their beaks.  They will like to play at sharpening their beaks.

How Long Do Budgies Live?

Budgies on average live to be eight years old.  However, some live for 12-15 years.

Perhaps, good food, clean water and playthings help a bird to be happy and that might increase his or her life.

“Poussey Washington” Engaged: Samira Wiley & Lauren Morelli

Read Out Magazine http://www.out.com/love-issue/2016/12/29/love-portfolio-samira-wiley-lauren-morelli.  This is their love story.

 

Orange is the New Black actress Samira Wiley is engaged to her girlfriend, Lauren Morelli who is one of the show’s writers.

The couple, who have been dating for more than two years and the annoucement in February 2017 has been cause for much celebration.

Samira Wiley 

Samira Wiley was born on April 15, 1987 in Washington, D.C

We know her as the enchanting “Poussey Washington” in Orange is the New Black blockbuster series.  She attended The Juillard School of Performing Arts in New York City.  Her interest was in theatre.  In 2011, she played Maria in a production of Love’s Labour’s Lost by The Public Theater

 Samira Wiley has two siblings: Aiyana Kai Ma’at and Joshua Wiley.

Samira was raised in a Christian household. 

 Her parents, Christine and Dennis W. Wiley, are the co-pastors of Covenant Baptist United Church of Christ.  In my opinion, her parents are ‘true Christians.’  They have been praised as “pillars of the LGBT religious community.”  Their church, Covenant Baptist Church, was the ONLY Baptist church in Washington, D.C that performed same-sex UNIONS as far back as 2007.

Thank Heavens for Friends

Samira seems to have got the role of Poussey thanks to a friend from Juillard, named Marco Ramiez, who was a writer for the show.  Samira also discovered that another friend from Julliard was Danielle Brooks. 

Danielle Brooks

Danielle was playing Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson on the series.  Samaria asked Danielle to help her rehearse for an audition – which she got. Yes! LOL.

What is also interesting is that Danielle Brooks also came from a similar Christian family, where her mother was a minister and her father was a deacon!

The Role Grows and So Does Fan Base

Samaria appeared in all twelve episodes of Season 1.  As her character became darker and more violent,  the “Poussey” character developed a large fan base.  Samaria’s success has made her a prominent actress in Season 3 & 4.

Lauren Morelli: Happy Fiancée

Morelli, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a graduate of Winchester Thurston School. Early in her education, she studied dance at Marymount Manhattan College in New York, until a back injury ended her career in dance.[1]

Lauren is a talented writer – that had us glued to OITNB.  She wrote the 12th episode of Season 4 which featured Samaria’s character.  She grew up in Pittsburg, Pennyslavia.  She studied dance at Marymount Manhattan College, New York, until a back injury ended her career.  It seems that Lauren had other talents. In college she was inspired by a professor to pursue a career in writing.

It was in 2013 that Lauren got her break with Orange is the New Black.  She was appointed ‘lead writer’ for two episodes of the First Season.  She has stated that she fell in love with Samaria, but being married, her relationship with Samaria was platonic.  Samaria was a friend who helped her through her realization that she felt a love for women.  The follow year (2014), Lauren filed for divorce from her husband of two years.  On October 4, 2016, Lauren announced her engagement to Samaria.
Out Magazine has a great article on their relationship.

The Equally Talented Lauren

Lauren was nominated for the 2014 Online Film and Television Association’s award for “Best Writing in a Comedy Series,”.  In 2014 and in 2015 Lauren was nominated by the Writers Guild of America for “Best Comedy Series,”

Here are some of the awards from Wikipedia

Orange Is the New Black has become Netflix’s most-watched original series.It has received critical acclaim and many accolades. For its first season, the series garnered 12 Primetime Emmy Award nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, winning three. A new Emmy rule in 2015 forced the series to change categories from comedy to drama.[For its second season, the series received four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, and Uzo Aduba won for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Orange Is the New Black is the first series to score Emmy nominations in both comedy and drama categories.[ The series has also received six Golden Globe Award nominations, six Writers Guild of America Award nominations, two Producers Guild of America Awards, an American Film Institute award, and a Peabody Award.

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen has denied changing her support of marriage equality after she told an activist they might not see marriage equality happen in their lifetime.

The activist, Vincent Huang, took to Facebook to accuse Tsai of backpedaling on her support of marriage equality.

Huang was at a discussion at the Presidential Office with groups on both sides of the marriage equality debate where he claimed Tsai made the anti-marriage equality comments.

He told the Tsai many gay and lesbian couples were worried their parents would not live to see their LGBTI children get married.

Huang claimed the president responded by saying ‘in this life, you may probably not live to see same-sex marriage’.

What Tsai really said

However the Presidential Office was quick to deny this what Tsai had said released some of the discussion transcript.

The president started saying event though LGBTI people have waited a long time for equality advocates should not risk efforts by trying to rush the issue.

‘The wait has already gone to this point, it should not be ruined at this last stage,’ she said.

‘If one has waited this long, but because there wasn’t patience at the last moment thus destroying all the efforts in the past, I know that this is the hardest point in time.’

At this point Huang interrupted her saying, ‘But our lives can’t be put on hold’.

I know, but even if you can’t put your lives on hold you need to consider the future of other people as well and think of them as well,’ Tsai responded.

Huang then said: ‘You support me and I’d be willing to take a bullet for you’.

‘That’s OK. But, actually when I was passing out red envelopes recently, young people told me: ‘I want to get married this year. As president, don’t you feel in your heart the need to fulfill that?’,’ she replied.

‘But really, this is not something that we can reach today in just one step. It’s a long road and it’s going to get harder and harder along the way.’

The Presidential Office told media ‘the memory and understanding’ of Huang and the president contained “differences,” adding that the transcript was published to allow dialogue to continue in the future.

LGBTI advocate Huang Shang-wen told the China Post Huang’s interpretation of what the president said was ‘understandable’ after the government decided not to prioritize the revision of the Civil Code during the current legislative session.

Huang said the decision was causing ‘anxiety’ among LGBTI groups.

True Colors: Lyrics by Cyndi Lauper That Inspire)

Be confident.  Do not compare yourself to others.  You are important.  Life, laugh and be happy.   Be grateful – Be Positive.
 
 
True Colors
 
 
You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize
Its hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small
 
But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow
 
Show me a smile then
Don’t be unhappy, can’t remember
When I last saw you laughing
If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up

Because you know I’ll be there
 
 
And I’ll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful
Like a rainbow

States’ rights to hose Afro-Americans in 1950/60s

This is not a long blog.  Like most decent humans on the planet I am disgusted by Trump becoming President of the USA.  It is clear to the world that his administration is filled with fascists.  Basic human rights are being threatened.  The administration is so erratic that is is scary.

States Rights – is a perfect way to divert people from attacking Trump.  Introduce something like gender bathrooms and add – “this is a matter for states to determine.’   This is disgusting.  Since when does a state decide human rights.   History goes not have to go far back to see that many racist Southern States had to be forced by the Federal Government to give basic human rights to African Americans.   If it had been left to states’ rights – there would still be ‘whites only toilets and seating places in restaurants.’

Separation of Church and State

Brutality in the name of states’ rights

It is not the right of states to let so called Christians determine who has rights and who does not.  If bigoted right wing Christians can discriminate against homosexuals in housing, jobs, buying products, why stop there.  After all, Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God and neither do Jews and there is a clear statement from St. Paul – that it is important to Christians to believe that Jesus is Lord and God.  Again, there were “Christians” in times of racial segregation that used the Old Testament to support discrimination.

Let’s humiliate under states’ rights

Fighting States and NOT Trump.!

What a great move!  The Trump administration diverts everyone from fighting the Donald and concentrating on individual states.  There is an ongoing movement to declare the presidential election to be invalid.  Concentrate on THAT.

He created the Saathiya Resource Kit that includes a mobile app and Peer Educators can help adolescents.  Imagine how most LGBT persons would have felt if teachers had told them that “It’s OK to be Gay!”  Even though homosexuality is NOT decriminalised in India, the resource tells students it is ok to be attracted to be people of the same sex. It says it is normal to have these feelings.

Questions and Answers.

What does it mean to feel attraction for members of the opposite, or same, sex? How does menstruation affect the body? Is masturbation a sinful activity? What does it mean to have safe sex? The kit also tackles the issue of reproductive health, especially the use of contraceptives, headlong and with unusual complexity. Apart from imparting information about HIV and sexually transmissible diseases, it explains basic facts about pregnancy and abortion, admitting thereby that teenage sexual encounters or pregnancies are not as uncommon as society would like to believe. There are also clear instructions about what consent means: a no is a no is a no, under any circumstances, says the kit.

Menstruation, another forbidden topic among Indian families that has lead to severe drop-out among young girls from schools, is also discussed with surprising maturity.

Apart from engaging with specific issues of health and hygiene, the kit reportedly tries to change the way masculinity and femininity are perceived by young people, most often due to conditioning since their birth. Boys, therefore, are always given a wide berth to act like boys, while girls are expected to be sugar and spice and everything nice.

 Minister Mishra is quoted as saying, ’Our country is home to 253 million adolescents which is largest in the world in terms of absolute numbers.Adolescents are the critical mass of asset which in future would be the biggest dividends to the country’s economy; thereby their health and wellness are of utmost priority.”

He further explained that “ The kit is being launched to enable the  (1.6 million) Peer Educators towards taking their job forward and answering all the queries in the minds of an adolescent in-spite of the plethora of media (Magazines, TV, internet etc.) available

The Peer Educators will be trained to be recognized as a ‘saathiya’ – a good friend to students.  

Paula here.  I am so impressed at this educational tool.  The separation of religion and state allows true scientific thought.  In March 2016, the World Psychaitric Association consisting of 180 countries wrote a declaration to the United Nations and world leaders.  This scientific body with a huge research base, stated that homosexuality CANNOT be reversed.  India is a member of WPA.  Well done, India.

What is in This Kit?

There are statements such as “It’s OK to be Gay!”  Another statement reads, (Students) can feel attraction for a friend or any individual of the same or opposite sex.  It is normal to have special feelings for someone.”

The Indian government has released a new health resource for school students which discusses sexual consent and homosexuality.  The sexual consent is very important because India and South Africa are the main countries for rape against women and children.

Kit Also Explores Other Issues:

Human Sexuality is included along with discussions of  health, drugs and alcohol.  Forming and exploring relationships is important to teenagers around the world.  The kit states It is :normal to have special feelings for someone. It is important for adolescents to understand that such relationships are based on mutual consent, trust, transparency and respect. It is alright to talk about such feelings to the person for whom you have them but always in a respectful manner… Boys should understand that when a girl says ‘no’ it means no.’

Minister Mishra said the most important component and driving force of the program were its Peer Educators and this resource kit was launched to help them to communicate with teenagers.

Right-Wing Religions and Sexuality

Paula here again.

I look at this kit and find that it extremely educational and helpful to adolescents.  Many southern USA states have right-wing Christians on boards of education.  They look at adolescents and sex and state that celebacy is the answer.  In such states where this is practised, teen pregnancies have increased and homosexuality is cited as an 

‘abomination in the sight of God.’  No wonder there are so many homosexual teens who commit suicide. 

Here is what Minister Mishra says about the human value of teens.

‘Our country is home to 253 million adolescents which is largest in the world in terms of absolute numbers,’ Minister Mishra said.

‘Adolescents are the critical mass of asset which in future would be the biggest dividends to the country’s economy; thereby their health and wellness are of utmost priority.’

‘The kit is being launched to enable the  (1.6 million) Peer Educators towards taking their job forward and answering all the queries in the minds of an adolescent in-spite of the plethora of media (Magazines, TV, internet etc.) available,’ he said.

The Peer Educators will be trained to be recognized as a ‘saathiya’ – a good friend for the students.

Smartphone App to Help Shy Kids

The mobile app ‘Saathiya Salah’ can be used by students who might not have access to the Peer Educators and is also linked to a toll-free Saathiya Helpline (1800-233-1250) which will act as an e-counselor.

The app and helpline was designed to help the shy adolescents or those unable to interact with the peer educators due to family reasons to access the information.

What is Masculinity? 

The kit states:

‘Being rude and insensitive is not a sign of masculinity. It is alright for boys to like things like cooking and designing that are normally associated with girls; adopting the role of the other gender does not mean that he is not male.

‘The same applies for girls who talk too much or like to dress like boys or play games like boys. It is wrong to label such people as ‘sissy’ or ‘tomboy’.’

Developed in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund also works to dispel gender stereotypes.

It teaches students that it is ok for boys to cry and calling somebody a ‘sissy’ or a ‘tomboy’ was not acceptable.

‘A boy can cry to give vent to his feelings. He can also be soft-spoken or shy,’ it says.

India is one of the first truly great civilizations of the world.  And I feel that it is keeping to its fine tradition. Paula.

From Forbes Magazine  Feb. 21, 2017. http://www.forbes.com/sites/bizblog/2017/02/21/why-i-decided-to-license-starships-music-to-chick-fil-a/#6e16324e4a43

Recently an ad agency asked me if they could use a song I sang on, in 1987, for a TV commercial. I didn’t immediately tell them to go f**k themselves. After all, I’ve licensed my music to advertise someone else’s product before. In 1967, Jefferson Airplane wrote a psychedelic jingle about white rabbits jeans that’s a damn classic (Google it!). But that was for Levi Strauss & Co. This time, the agency wanted the Starship tune “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” for a very different kind of enterprise: Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A pisses me off. The Georgia-based company has a well-documented history of funding organizations, through their philanthropic foundation WinShape, that are against gay marriage. In interviews, CEO Dan T. Cathy has critiqued gay-rights supporters who “have the audacity to define marriage” and said they are bringing “God’s judgment” upon the nation.

I firmly believe that men should be able to marry men, and women women. I am passionately against anyone who would try to suppress this basic human right. So my first thought when “Check”-fil-A came to me was, “F**k no!”

So that was my voice you heard on the Chick-fil-A commercial during the Grammy Awards telecast. I am donating every dime that I make from that ad to Lambda Legal, the largest national legal organization working to advance the civil rights of LGBTQ people, and everyone living with HIV. Admittedly it’s not the millions that WinShape has given to organizations that define marriage as heterosexual. But instead of them replacing my song with someone else’s and losing this opportunity to strike back at anti-LGBTQ forces, I decided to spend the cash in direct opposition to “Check”-fil-A’s causes – and to make a public example of them, too. We’re going to take some of their money, and pay it back.

See, I come from a time when artists didn’t just sell their soul to the highest bidder, when musicians took a stand, when the message of songs was “feed your head,” not “feed your wallet.” We need that kind of artistic integrity today, more than ever. We won’t produce quality art if we don’t keep ourselves open to all people and possibilities, if we don’t put our money where our mouths are. As Jennifer Lopez quoted Toni Morrison during the Grammys telecast, “‘This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self pity, no need for silence, and no room for fear. We do language. That is how civilizations heal.’”

Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s constantly lying advisor, came up with another incredible lie.  She invented a massacre that never happened.

 

She invented a terrorist attack in Kentucky to justify Trump’s travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries. (Note that most of the 911 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia which is not on the ban). Saudi Arabia and Trump are involved in business negotiations and deals.

Kellyanne Needs a Nazi Uniform!

Hitler is on record as saying that repeatedly telling a lie will eventually make people believe it is true. To back up this claim, more than half of Trump’s supporters believe that a Bowling Green, Kentucky massacre happened!  This is despite the media stating such a massacre never occured!

In a new poll, 51 per cent of Trump voters agreed that  “the Bowling Green Massacre shows why Mr Trump’s immigration policy is needed”.

Conway stated that two Iraqi refugees were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre in a televised interview — before having to clarify that the attack in  Kentucky’s- third most populous city- never actually happened.

Conway told MSNBC presenter Chris Matthews: “President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalised and they were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.”

Trump’s approval rating is now just 43 per cent, while his disapproval rating has gone all the way up to 53 per cent.

If voters could choose they would rather have either Mr Obama or Hillary Clinton as US President, instead of Mr Trump, the data showed.

Just three weeks into his administration, voters are now evenly divided on the issue of impeaching Mr Trump, with 46 per cent in favour and 46 per cent opposed.

“It only took three weeks in office for half the country to decide it wants to impeach Donald Trump,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.

Article by John Pavlovitz is a minister and writer in Raleigh, N.C. This column first appeared on his blog. Website: johnpavlovitz.com

There are times when you realize how far humanity has drifted, days when you see how sick we’ve become, moments when you notice how badly Christians have lost the plot. It often comes when you see strange alliances form; agreement where there should not be agreement, affinity that should not exist.Recently, while reflecting on the disheartening Evangelical Christian support for Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, I tweeted out these words: Equality means believing that a child living 5,000 miles away is as precious as the one sleeping in your nursery right now.The Tweet was shared by renowned metrosexual hipster Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer, whose black boot-licking fan boys swiftly ascended from their parent’s basements to hurl all sorts of online vulgarity at me from behind the safe anonymity of fake Twitter handles with photos of German stormtroopers and fatalistic Nietzsche quotes.

They marched lock-step to call me vile and evil and to let me know that my “Jewishness” was showing. (Never mind that I’m not Jewish.) They began to inundate me with all sorts of hypothetical situations where my son and some imaginary Muslim boy were both hanging from a ledge and I could only save one of them — illustrating in their minds the inherent flaws of my position. (These are the kinds of things people say to try and justify their contempt for entire people groups, and I’m used to it.)

The responses weren’t a surprise coming from these wannabe Fourth Reichers, who view everything and everyone through the lens of their perceived (and unearned) superiority. The more revelatory and concerning feedback came from people like Amy, a conservative white Christian mom who replied to the same Tweet: “If you have children, I feel sorry for them.”

Her words joined a similar outpouring from professed Bible-believing, God-fearing Jesus folk, punctuated by lots of venom, familiar FoxNews cut-and-paste criticisms of Islam, and lots of references to making America great. They too rushed to join the pseudo-Fascists in disputing the idea that a child in Syria was as important as their children, seemingly oblivious to the red flag that such agreement should raise. 

This is a symptom of the heart sickness American evangelicals have inherited, one revealed in a growing Christian nationalism as well as a highly selective pro-life position, where apparently life isn’t just more valuable inside the womb than outside of it, but inside America than outside of it as well.

At the core of this inconsistency is a deeply embedded, subconscious belief that a child is worth more if the trip through the birth canal happens to deposit him or her within our borders. This is especially true if the child looks like them, is likely to worship and believe and vote like them, if it will replicate them.

Amy’s response and the responses of many white Christians to my Tweet were telling. They imagine that my capacity for compassion is so minuscule that it can only accommodate my own children. They assume that love for one must come at the expense of another. They reflect a fearful religion that instills in them fear that they are perpetually in danger. They reveal a faith rooted in superiority and self-preservation; one that breeds hostility to those it sees as outsiders.

Far too much of American evangelicalism has become this, and it’s a problem.

Moses escaping from Pharaoh

It’s a problem because the lineage of our Christian tradition leads back to Moses being saved from Pharaoh’s ethnic cleansing of the Jewish people.

It’s a problem because the story of the Israelites is one of continual escape from violent oppression as marginalized, despised foreigners.

It’s a problem because Jesus was born to refugees desperately fleeing genocide.

It’s a problem because the core of this Jesus’ teaching was the command to love your neighbor as yourself, and that designation of neighbor had nothing to do with geography but with shared Humanity.

It’s a problem because the evangelical Christian’s go-to Bible drop quote, John 3:16, begins with the words, “For God so loved the world.”

To claim the Christian faith is to practice the most radical kind of hospitality and the most counterintuitive compassion for the other. Jesus was a homeless, dark-skinned immigrant who modeled sacrificial love and who welcomed to his table both beggar and soldier, both priest and prostitute, both Jew and Samaritan. It’s almost impossible to simultaneously emulate this Jesus and champion exclusion, superiority or even protection, for that matter.

And that’s the heart of this for Americans who profess a Christian faith: eventually you have to choose.

You cannot be both “For God so loved the world” and America First. 

You cannot preach the gospel while despising refugees and foreigners and immigrants. 

You can’t claim that all lives matter while protecting only your own kind. 

You cannot be fully pro-life and uphold your supremacy based on color, geography or religion. 

You either believe all people are made fully in the image of God, or you don’t.

You either aspire to a benevolence without conditions or caveats or border or color codes, or you don’t. 

You can’t pledge complete allegiance to both Jesus and America simultaneously. At some point one will have to yield to the other, and when your religious position on foreigners begins to align with a malevolent Fascist extremist, it may be time to reconsider your interpretation of the gospel. It may be time to see if you’ve made God in your own caucasian image.

I don’t imagine Amy or the Christians like her would say they have anything in common with a blatantly racist Neo-Nazi like Richard Spencer, but there is a disturbing congruence in their shared hostility toward non-White, non-Christian, non-Americans. The aggressive territorialism they have in common is alarming, as is their explicit or implied assertion that life is somehow worth more, the closer to you it is — either in placement or pigmentation.

There is nothing of Jesus in this (who by the way was Jewish, Teutonic fanboys.)

Yes all life is equally valuable wherever it arrives or resides, and yes, a child 5,000 miles away is as inherently beautiful and worthy of protection as my own and your own.

And if America is first, Jesus can only be a very distant second.

We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” (Mother Teresa)

Cudding up the sorrow like it’s your best friend

But see the light shining on the wall

When you think it’s all over and you want to let go
The faintest glow is there to help you, I know
Keep looking for the light of

What, exactly, does the Constitution say about impeachment?

As we shall see, Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, was altogether wrong to proclaim that the president cannot be impeached unless he has broken the law. But Gerald Ford was even more wrong to say, in 1970 (when he was minority leader), that the House of Representatives can impeach the president on whatever grounds it likes.

To modern readers, the text of the Constitution strongly supports Pelosi. It says that a president may be removed only for “Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors”. The reference to treason and bribery, together with the word “other,” suggests that the president must have violated the law — and that the violation must be quite egregious (“high Crimes”).

But the debates at the Constitutional Convention offer a radically different perspective. An early draft of the founding document said that the president could be impeached for “malpractice, or neglect of duty”. That draft provoked an extended debate, featuring three distinct positions.

An extreme view, attracting little support, was close to Ford’s: The legislature should be able to remove the president at its pleasure. An equally extreme view, obtaining considerable support, was that the president should not be impeachable at all. The third position, which carried the day, was that the president should be impeachable, but only for a narrow category of egregious abuses.

Promoting that compromise in 1787, George Mason argued that the Constitution must allow a response if the president obtained office by corrupting his electors. That argument led other delegates to agree that impeachment might be permitted in situations of “corruption & some few other offences.”

James Madison concurred, pointing to cases in which a president “might betray his trust to foreign powers.” Gouverneur Morris added that the president “may be bribed by a greater interest to betray his trust; and no one would say that we ought to expose ourselves to the danger of seeing the first Magistrate in foreign pay without being able to guard against it by displacing him.”

Capturing the emerging consensus, a new draft of the impeachment clause would have permitted the president to be impeached for treason, bribery and corruption. With little additional debate, and for no obvious reason, this provision was abbreviated to “treason and bribery.”

In the final debate, Mason complained that the provision had become too narrow to capture his earlier concerns, and urged that “maladministration” should be added, so as to include “attempts to subvert the Constitution” that would not count as treason or bribery. But Madison responded that the term “maladministration” was far too open-ended. Hence Mason withdrew “maladministration” and added the new, more precise phrase “other high crimes and misdemeanors against the State.”

In the ratification debates, one of the most sustained explanations came from the highly respected (and later Supreme Court justice) James Iredell, speaking in the North Carolina ratifying convention: “I suppose the only instances, in which the President would be liable to impeachment, would be where he had received a bribe, or had acted from some corrupt motive or other.” By way of explanation, Iredell referred to a situation in which “the President has received a bribe – from a foreign power, and, under the influence of that bribe, had address enough with the Senate, by artifices and misrepresentations, to seduce their consent to a pernicious treaty.”

Alexander Hamilton similarly explained that the “subjects” of impeachment involve “the abuse of violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated POLITICAL, as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to society itself.”

Interestingly, the phrase “high Crimes and Misdemeanors”, which was drawn from English law, did not produce much debate; apparently the founders regarded it as a term of art. Crucially, the term “misdemeanor” did not mean a distinct set of crimes (as opposed to felony); it referred instead to bad acts, in the form of exceptionally serious public misconduct.

A “high crime and misdemeanor” could certainly be a crime, but the term could also include acts or omissions that did not amount to a violation of the criminal law. If an official simply refused to do his job for six months, there is a good argument that he would be committing a “misdemeanor”. In England, it was even said that serious misconduct, as in a case of committing the nation to an ignominious treaty, was a legitimate basis for impeachment.

The upshot is both simple and clarifying: the Constitution allows impeachment of the president for large-scale abuse of the authority of his office, and also for obtaining his office by corrupt means. Intense policy disagreements and partisan squabbles are never legitimate bases for impeachment. The same is true for purely private misconduct, even if it is genuinely terrible — and for making decisions that end up being struck down in court.

With respect to impeachment, the founders’ remarkable achievement was to establish a stable framework with which to resolve one of the gravest decisions that any nation can ever face. Regardless of who the president is — today, tomorrow or decades hence — we do best to show fidelity to that achievement.
