I’m the best Facebook employee ever!!

~~February 5, 2014~~

I must admit …. I don’t think I’d have a life but for the existence of Facebook. From the beginning, I was caught by the the myriad of features it offers.

People would ask me: “Are you on Facebook?” I’d get this look … “what the heck are you talking about?”

~~HERE IT IS~~

Facebook is an online social networking service. Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to students at some American universities. Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg with his college roommates and fellow Harvard University students Eduardo SaverinAndrew McCollumDustin Moskovitz and Chris Hughes. The founders had initially limited the website’s membership to Harvard students, but later expanded it to colleges in the Boston area, the Ivy League, and Stanford University. It gradually added support for students at various other universities before it opened to high-school students, and eventually to anyone aged 13 and over. Facebook now allows anyone who claims to be at least 13 years old to become a registered user of the website.

Users must register before using the site, after which they may create a personal profile, add other users as friends, exchange messages, and receive automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics, and categorize their friends into lists such as “People From Work” or “Close Friends”.

As of September 2012, Facebook has over one billion active users,of which 9% are fake. Facebook (as of 2012) has about 180 petabytes of data per year and grows by over half a petabyte every 24 hours.

I would like to think that because I’m Facebook’s best employee ever, they have made this little video about me. But … alas, everyone had one made …. Facebook is celebrating it’s 10th birthday. To be nice, they have prepared this little movie about your life with them.

Facebook is like my medicine.

It kept me calm while I was at work. It keeps me busy everywhere if I have my iPhone. I don’t have to disconnected at all. If I’m away from the PC, I also have the iPad.

I’m never far away from my Facebook pages. 

Image

All that poking, writing on walls, checking-in, looking at my timeline, liking, sharing, looking at videos, sending private message and in-boxing, posting photos, looking at photos, lurking in other people’s pages keeps a gal busy. I have to recognize and accept that this can be very addictive.

During those times when life isn’t going well and problems are vented on Facebook, there’s always the need to remove all the bad energy and black vibes that accumulate with time.

It’s always in our best interest to use sage and perform a smudging ceremony for page cleansing.

In “Anytown, USA” ….. 

I must say that if I were that gentleman I would have been embarrassed out of my skin. As he tried to be above someone speaking a language that wasn’t English, he simply assumed that the lady was speaking Spanish.

“Ooppps!! I guess that my ignorance and lack of education did shine through”. 

What is it that they say when someone assumes? You make an ass out of you …..

This all started because on Super Bowl Sunday, February 2, Coca Cola showed a 60 seconds ad where “America The Beautiful” was sung in English and different languages.

Not only that, the ad portrayed to variety and differences that make up the fabric of the American nation … all different races, customs, religions and languages.

This is a way of life.

Little-known Film: Native America Before Columbus [VIDEO]


Before Columbus!!!! Natives …

United States Hypocrisy

To the present day there is a widely held concept that paints the vast lands of North and South America – the so-called “New World” – before the arrival of Europeans as one giant wilderness that was simply waiting to be cultivated. This leaves the impression that the the land’s Native Inhabitants, known as the Native Indians, were up until that point peoples who had no interest in the complex characteristics that make up what we now call “civilization” – such as architecture, roadways and canals. This false notion has long since been refuted through archaeological research which has been published in numerous scientific publications throughout the years. However, a little-known documentary produced by National Geographic in 2010 attempted to offer a more visual presentation of pre-colonial America for its audience. This documentary film, “America Before Columbus”, does a commendable job of giving life to some of the many great…

Scotland becomes latest country to legalize marriage equality

BY Joshua Barajas  February 4, 2014 at 3:26 PM EST

The BBC reports that Scotland legalized marriage equality on Tuesday, February 4, 2014. The first same-sex weddings are to take place this fall.

The bill faced opposition from the country’s two main churches, the Scottish Catholic Church and the Church of Scotland, representatives of which have said they did not have plans to hold ceremonies. The measure allows religious groups an “opt in” to perform same-sex marriages.

The Scottish government passed the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill with a vote of 105-18, expanding on the legislation that has allowed civil partnerships since 2005.

Same-sex legislation was also passed for England and Wales in 2013 with the first weddings to take place in late March. Northern Ireland is not currently pursuing marriage equality legislation, making it the only part of the UK that hasn’t legalized gay marriage.

Scotland passed the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill on February 4, 2013, paving the way for same-sex marriages to begin in the fall, reports BuzzFeed.

The bill passed by a vote of 105-18 in the Scottish Parliament, allowing Scotland to join with fellow United Kingdom jurisdictions England and Wales in establishing marriage equality.

“I believe this bill will have a hugely positive impact on our society and on the health and well-being of LGBT of people in our country,” said Jim Eadie, a member of Parliament. “This is a profound moment in our nation’s history.”

The bill had bipartisan support, though it was opposed by the Church of Scotland and Scottish Catholic Church. Under the new law, religious groups will not be required to perform same-sex marriages, but may opt-in should they choose to recognize such unions.

Both England and Wales passed similar bills in 2013. They are set to begin marrying same-sex couples next month.

The bill’s passage also signifies the end of Scotland’s “spousal veto” rule, a law that required transgender people’s spouses to sign off on changing their gender.

Scotland had been debating establishing marriage equality for some time. The Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill was first introduced into Parliament in June 2013.

IT THIS A SIGN? POETIC JUSTICE …. RIGHT AT THE MOMENT MARRIAGE EQUALITY WAS PASSED! 

Border1

~~In his own words~~

“Often we look for a SIGN or a reason or whatever to ask “Why” or whatever. I am just saying. This picture was taken the same minute my Scottish Parliament decided to allow Gay Marriage. Isn’t this something? Really, if looking for signs, isn’t this one, or does it just not fit into agendas? If the vote was no and this happened, “God has spoken” would have been said.

And you know it. More good stuff, less crap.

Older adults who took music lessons as children but haven’t actively played an instrument in decades have a faster brain response to a speech sound than individuals who never played an instrument, according to a new study by Northwestern University researchers.

They found that the more years study participants spent playing instruments as youth, the faster their brains responded to a speech sound.

Music is soothing to my spirit and soul. 

It is mood medicine, it is magic, is healing.

It’s the universal language that all understand.

It keeps you company when you are sad. It gives you support during different times. It celebrates with you the important events in life …. music is my company, music is my muse, music is my life, music is my therapy.
