World marks Fukushima anniversary

Ministers urged to learn the lessons of Japanese nuclear disaster

Anti-nuclear campaigners told Con-Dem ministers yesterday to learn the lessons of the Fukushima disaster “before it’s too late” for Britain.

Activists issued the demand before the third anniversary today of the incident which has left 160,000 Japanese people refugees in their own country.

Tens of thousands of people have rallied in Japan urging their government not to make the same mistakes again.

More than 15,000 people lost their lives in the immediate aftermath of an earthquake and tsunami that swept away homes along Japan’s coast.

And the radiation released by the wrecked Fukushima plant has left the surrounding area empty.

Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament leader Kate Hudson warned a meeting in Parliament…

~~Early life and family~~

Rinehart was born in PerthWestern Australia, the daughter of Hope Margaret Nicholas and Lang Hancock . An only child, Rinehart lived with her parents at Nunyerry, 60 kilometres (37 mi) north of Wittenoom, until she was four, later boarding at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls in Perth. She briefly studied economics at Sydney University, before dropping out and working for her father, gaining an extensive knowledge of the Pilbara iron-ore industry.

As a teenager Rinehart met Englishman Greg Milton, while both were working in Wittenoom. In 1973, aged 19, Rinehart married Milton and he changed his surname to Hayward. Together they had two children, John Langley and Bianca Hope. However, the marriage did not last. Rinehart and Hayward separated in 1979 and divorced in 1981. In 1983 she married Frank Rinehart, a 57 year old German American corporate lawyer. They had two children together, Ginia and Hope, born 18 months apart. Frank died in 1990.

She became involved in an acrimonious legal fight with her stepmother, Rose Porteous, in 1992 over the circumstances of her father’s death and control of the Hancock assets. The court cases and negotiations ultimately took 14 years to settle.

In 1999 her proposal to name a mountain range after her family was approved. The so-named Hancock Range is situated about 65 km north-west of the town of Newman at 23°00′23″S 119°12′31″E and commemorates the family’s contribution to the establishment of the pastoral and mining industry in the Pilbara region.

In 2003, after a falling out with Rinehart, her son, John Langley Hayward, changed his surname by deed poll to John Langley Hancock; as of October 2013, their relationship remains difficult. John’s sister, Bianca Hope Hayward, who was once positioned to take over the family business, served as a director of Hancock Prospecting and HMHT Investments until 31 October 2011, when she was replaced by her half-sister, Ginia Rinehart.

Rinehart’s other daughter, Hope, married Ryan Welker, an American director of Mineral Resources — a Hancock partial subsidiary — and they live together in Sydney, Australia. 

As of October 2013, Hancock Prospecting and Rinehart maintain an 8 percent stake in Mineral Resources.


There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire,’ billionaire heiress Gina Rinehart wrote. ‘If you’re jealous of those with more money, don’t just sit there and complain.’

One of the world’s richest women had people seething after she said that Australia needs to reduce labor costs in order to remain competitive with Africa, where she says people are “willing to work for less than $2 a day.”

Georgina “Gina” Rinehart, an Australian mining tycoon, who inherited great wealth from her father Lang Hancock and is estimated to be worth more than $18 billion, made the controversial remark during a speech slamming the country’s economic performance at the Sydney Mining Club, the Los Angeles Times reported.


“The evidence is inarguable that Australia is becoming too expensive and too uncompetitive to do export-oriented business,” Rinehart said. “Africans want to work, and its workers are willing to work for less than $2 per day. Such statistics make me worry for this country’s future.”

Australia’s Green Party leader Sen. Christine Milne immediately blasted Rinehart, who reportedly earns nearly $600 a second thanks to Hancock Prospecting, the mining company she inherited from her father, BBC reported.

“Gina Rinehart is the epitome of the greed and the abuse of the environment that has become such a characteristic of the mining industry in Australia,” Milnes said, according to News.Com.Au.


Prime Minister Julia Gillard added: “It’s not the Australian way to toss people $2, to toss them a gold coin, and then ask them to work for a day. We support proper Australian wages and decent working conditions,” according to the Los Angeles Times.

This is far from the first time Rinehart has stirred controversy.

She drew ire when she wrote in her column in Australian Resources and Investment magazine that those who are jealous of the wealthy should “spend less time drinking, or smoking and socializing and more time working.”

Rinehart, who has previously suggested that the government should lower minimum wage, has greatly increased the massive wealth she inherited from her father, who died in 1992.

Fat greasy pig Gina Rinehart says we should work for $2 a day!!

She makes $600 a second!!



~~Published on Sep 5, 2012~~

Australian mining magnate Gina Rinehart has criticised her country’s economic performance and said that “Africans willing to work for $2 a day should be an inspiration”.
Ms Rinehart is said to make nearly A$600 (£393) a second, and her views have been dismissed by Prime Minister Julia Gillard.


Australia’s richest person reckons that wages are too high, business taxes are too high, environmental regulations are stifling progress, there is an entrenched culture of entitlement and we socialise too much. In fact Australia is, according to Gina Rinehart, pretty much in the grip of socialism.

You couldn’t really make this stuff up – but she has. The mining magnate has laid it all out in her column – titled “Let’s get back to our roots” – for Australian Resources and Investment magazine. The first thing any reader of the article will note is the total lack of self-reflection on the part of its author. Rinehart inherited her wealth, and her industry receives some $4 billion dollars in government subsidies and concessions every year. The second thing of note is the paucity of facts she has mustered – surely the only display of thrift the world’s richest woman is capable of.

FROM GRIEVING TO SNEAKING: : Elephants can guess human’s age and even ethnicity by listening to a voice

Excellent post! Anything animal related is very interesting!!



  • Elephants can distinguish a warlike tribe from a more peaceable people by listening to their voices
  • African elephants in the Amboseli National Park in Kenya can tell the difference between two languages used by the Massai and Kamba tribes
  • They use voice and language to help them work out which humans pose a threat to them so they can choose whether to attack or not

An elephant never forgets…a voice.

A study found the gentle giants can distinguish a warlike tribe from a more peaceable people, simply by listening to recordings of their voices.

Not only could the African elephants tell the two languages apart, they could also work out if the speaker was a man or a woman and an adult or a child.



Elephants grieve like humans and are believed to suffer from post traumatic stress

From a gay Ugandan …. touches my heart!

Here you have it …. “In his own words”!!
Does it touch your heart in any way?
This is a moving comment by someone who we are trying to help.
This was written in response to anti-gay comments left on OBLOGDEE site
(http://oblogdeeoblogda.me/about/) by Ugandans who tout that being gay is “unafrican” or that people are “paid and recruited to be gay”:


“I am a gay Ugandan. I was not taught to be gay by any white person. Did you know that Kabaka Mwanga was not taught to be gay by any whites but was also gay?

I know at least one thousand other gays who live in different parts of Uganda, all of them are Ugandans, none were taught, none were given money, so can we stop this nonsense of blaming whites and accept that being gay is part of being African whether we like it or not? No one is asking you to like it or to do it, but why harrass and imprison someone who has done nothing to you?

Why have Ugandans become so racist fifty years after Independence?? Is it because our so-called Independence and sovereignty have failed miserably due to corruption, dictatorship, economic mismanagement, tribal selfishness etc. and we need to blame the whites and the gays instead of blaming Ugandans, including you.
I have never molested children. I have never asked you to be gay. I have paid all my taxes and helped many people both gay and not gay, to go to school and start businesses, just like other responsible Ugandans. Now because of so called ‘African culture’ and ”religion”, people in my village abuse me and harass me because I’m gay. The police want to arrest me though I have not committed any crime. Is that African culture? Is that the religion of love? Now I am forced to leave my home, my country and my job. I have nowhere to go.
Does that make you feel good?”
This is one of the people our fund is seeking to help.
We need to collect another $8,000 within a week.

Punishing Gays: ‘Rectums are glued shut and they are force-fed petrol and set alight’


His “crime”? He was gay.


Anyone complained about ‘evil white’ slavery?

Gay men are punished in Uganda by being tied to a tire, dosed in petrol and rolled down the street.

Another Ugandan Gay Man Killed in Uganda

~~The Anti Homosexuality Law Was Signed~~



~~Published on Dec 23, 2013~~

Ssekasi John aged 29 was a business man who always hosted
male friends at his home in Kasangati. On Sunday as he was
at Kalerwe Market stage, one of the boda boda riders refused to
ride him home simply because he one of the riders on the same
stage had informed him that he (Ssekasi John) was a gay who
at one time wanted to have annual sex with him … Its at that point
that other riders started attacking him and hence ended up using
mob justice onto him.

Its now official that being a gay or lesbian leads you to life imprisonment in Uganda.

Thomas Eakins …… American ARTIST!

Thomas Eakins …. American artist, in many ways!

The Beautiful Blog


~~March 11, 2014~~

Thomas Cowperthwait Eakins (July 25, 1844 – June 25, 1916) was an American realist painterphotographersculptor, and fine arts educator. He is widely acknowledged to be one of the most important artists in American art history.

For the length of his professional career, from the early 1870s until his health began to fail some 40 years later, Eakins worked exactingly from life, choosing as his subject the people of his hometown of Philadelphia. He painted several hundred portraits, usually of friends, family members, or prominent people in the arts, sciences, medicine, and clergy. Taken en masse, the portraits offer an overview of the intellectual life of Philadelphia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries; individually, they are incisive depictions of thinking persons.

In addition, Eakins produced a number of large paintings which brought the portrait out of the drawing room and…

Lawsuit filed challenging Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act


Yes, take it to court!!!


“no personal opinion, no religious belief, no matter how deeply held or widely shared can ever justify depriving another human being of his or her basic rights…”

By Cathy Kristofferson, March 11, 2014

BichzmoIgAAJ9vmToday advocates from the Civil Society Coalition on Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CSCHRSL) filed a constitutional challenge to Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act (AHA).  The team that filed the petition consists of seven advocates from five law firms, who have consulted with at least 20 lawyers worldwide.

The petitioners maintain that the recently enacted Anti-Homosexuality Act violates the LGBT community’s right to privacy, freedoms of expression, assembly and association which are all guaranteed in the Ugandan Constitution.


The lead petitioners in this case include Prof. Joe Oloka-Onyango, Hon. Fox Odoi-Oywelowo, Andrew Mwenda, Prof. Morris Latigo, Dr. Paul Ssemugoma, Jacqueline Kasha Nabagesera, Julian Pepe Onziema, Frank Mugisha, as well as the indigenous organisations Human Rights Awareness and Promotion Forum (HRAPF) and the…

The text in the black wolf/white wolf picture reads:
A native American Chief was teaching his grandson about life
He said “There are two wolves fighting in each and everyone of us”
One is pride, greed, anger, jealousy, hate and resentment while the other is Love, humbleness, faith, hope, happiness and courage”

The grandson asked “Which wolf will win?”
The Chief replied “The one you feed”


Which wolf will you feed?
