A report by Stephanie Petit for People.

Google’s homepage got a colorful update on Tuesday in honor of Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez.

On what would have been his 91st birthday, the search engine’s daily Doodle depicts the magical city of Macondo and surrounding Amazon jungle featured in his book A Hundred Years Of Solitude. The image includes significant elements of the 1967 Spanish-language novel that propelled Márquez’s literary career, including a goldfish and gypsies.


The book — which took the author 18 months to write, reported the New York Times— went on to sell over 30 million copies around the world, according to his 2014 Reuters obituary. Márquez wrote over 25 imaginative books, including Love in the Time of Cholera, and received the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature.

His works even inspired the music video for R.E.M.’s hit 1991 song “Losing My Religion,” according to Rolling Stone.

IOTD …. “✊🏽 Images of the Day, Very Special Edition …. International Women’s Day ✊🏽 …. “!!

~~March 8, 2018~~ 


The tradition began with the first National Women’s Day in 1909 and its roots are in campaigning for better pay and voting rights.

What is this year’s theme?
The theme this year is #PressforProgress.

The website says:

“We can’t be complacent. Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.

“A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.”

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”



March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day.

Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.

Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continues to grow from strength to strength.

NRA Ad Warns ‘Time is Running Out’ for Its Adversaries …. “✊🏽 Surely they didn’t expect this …. Sarah Chadwick ✊🏽 …. “!!


~~March 8, 2018~~ 



Parkland student Sarah Chadwick creates a fearless parody mocking the threatening NRA ad

~The NRA made its ad … now this Parkland student is returning the favor~

This past week, NRA’s spokesmodel Dana Loesch put out a threatening video ad against pretty much anyone who wasn’t supportive of the National Rifle Association – and Trumpism. In response, Parkland student Sarah Chadwick created a word-for-word parody of Loesh’s ad.

Chadwick is one of the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 students and staff dead – gunned down and murdered by a student with an AR-15 automatic weapon of war.



In a thinly veiled threat packaged as an advertisement for her new show on NRA TV, NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch called out various groups the NRA regularly targets warning their “time is running out.”

Featuring foreboding music, black background and costume, and an hourglass, Loesch issued what can only be described as a vague threat to take action against what the embattled gun lobbying organization views as its ever-growing list of enemies.

To the Joy-Ann Reids, the Morning Joes, the Mikas.

To those who stain honest reporting with partisanship. To those who bring bias and propaganda to CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Time … your time is running out.

The clock starts now.

TRM – Trump Resistance Movement


Bears Ears

This is a reckless decision that goes straight to the heart of America!!
‘ A lawsuit has been filed by a conservation group, Earthjustice. The suit claims that because the president’s authority to create national monuments is delegated by Congress under the Antiquities Act, monument proclamations carry the force of law and cannot be reversed by later presidents. ‘
Mike Noel is a member of the Utah House of Representatives. Mr. Noel liked Trump’s proclamation so much that he has written a proposal to rename the 631-mile-long Utah National Parks Highway. And just what would Mr. Noel wish to name the highway? The “Donald J. Trump Utah National Parks Highway”.
… and to name a highway after the FIDIOT? … Beyond comprehension!!

Filosofa's Word

Bears Ears.  You’ve all heard of it by now, right?  The Bears Ears are a pair of mesas located in San Juan County in southeastern Utah. They arewere protected as part of and the namesake of the Bears Ears National Monument, managed by the Bureau of Land Management and United States Forest Service.

Bears Ears-1On December 4th, 2017, Donald Trump signed Proclamation 9558, an executive order to shrink the Bears Ears National Monument—home to ancient cliff dwellings, Native American cultural sites, and iconic wildlife—by 85 percent.  And the proclamation does not stop with Bears Ears, but also includes a number of other national monuments including the Moki Steps, Native American ceremonial sites, tools and projectile points, remains of single-family dwellings, granaries, kivas, towers, large villages, rock shelters, caves, and a prehistoric road system, as well as petroglyphs, pictographs, and recent rock art left by the Ute, Navajo…
