the law keeps balance through the juxtaposition of beauty,
which gains perfection through nurtured imperfection.”

EL MORRO, PUERTO RICO

This is what you see from the plane’s window. 

It’s a welcoming symbol for those coming back home or a ‘see you soon’ as one leaves.

Following the April 11, 2019, showing of Childish Gambino and Rihanna’s musical film at the first week of Coachella 2019 and its premiere on Amazon for the rest of the world, the movie has been trending on social media and has been highly acclaimed by several film critics and bloggers who all share the same thought that this might just be Rihanna’s best performance in a movie.

The reception to the movie pushed Rihanna, who played the lead female role of Kofi to take to social media and pour her gratitude to her millions of fans who in turn thanked her for a stellar presentation.

The 55-minute musical film is not just a showcase of what great things stars can produce when they work together or the brilliant creative that Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) and his family is; the…

Climate Change Was The Engine That Powered Hurricane Maria’s Devastating Rains


This was an unique, destructive event … my heart still aches.
‘Studies found that Maria was a behemoth compared with past storms that raked the U.S. territory. The average amount of rain Maria dropped on the island in a day – about 15 inches – was 30 percent more than the previous record set by a tropical storm in 1985, and 66 percent more rain than fell on average during what was previously the largest and costliest storm to ever hit the island, 1998’s Hurricane Georges.’

A report by Rebecca Hersher for NPR.

Hurricane Maria was the rainiest storm known to have hit Puerto Rico, and climate change is partly to blame, according to a new study.

The worst rain fell in the mountainous central part of Puerto Rico, from the northwest to the southeast. That part of the island is rainy under normal conditions. In an average year, it gets more than 150 inches of rain.

When Maria hit in 2017, it dropped nearly a quarter of that annual rainfall in just one day.

In a paper published Tuesday in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, scientists at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa and Sonoma State University in California analyzed rainfall from all 129 hurricanes that have affected Puerto Rico since reliable record keeping began in 1956.

They found that Maria was a behemoth compared with past storms that raked the U.S. territory. The…

1-Year-Old Prince Louis Shows Off His First Two Teeth in New Birthday Photos (Taken by Mom Kate!)

After months of not seeing the little royal, Kate Middleton and Prince William released three new photos of their third child on Monday in honor of his first birthday on April 23.

Prince Louis looks like a perfect combination of older siblings Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, who turns 4 on May 2. The little prince has adorable chubby cheeks – a family trait shared by his brother and sister when they were babies – and even shows off two new teeth with his smile!

And his blondish locks are adorably combed to the side.
