United States Hypocrisy

A new video from Xinhua News Agency uses LEGO characters to illustrate the difference in the Chinese and American responses to the emergence of COVID-19.

A report by Juliet Macur for The New York Times.

Laurie Hernandez won medals at the 2016 Games. But she said her love of the sport was tainted under training with Maggie Haney, who is now suspended by the sport’s American federation.

For the longest time, Laurie Hernandez, an Olympic champion gymnast, thought she was crazy for thinking that her coach had emotionally abused her.

When that coach screamed at her for the tiniest of mistakes or lapses in focus, calling her weak, lazy or messed up in the head, with an obscenity for emphasis, Hernandez rationalized that all top coaches pushed their young gymnasts that way. When she stood frozen and bawling at the gym, her heart racing as she struggled to breathe, scared to do anything that would elicit her coach’s wrath, Hernandez — an adolescent at the time — assumed she just couldn’t handle the pressure.

Michigan Freeedumb ….


FREEEE-DUMB!! Beyond … I hate Michigan Nazis! Could some of them have come from another area in the country? … “Trump defended the Michigan protesters by saying there were “very good people” among them. When Nazis marched in Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us,” and “Blood and soil,” he said there were “very fine people” among them.”

I hate Drumpf!!

OK, kids. Let’s go over it one more time. Flying a Confederate flag isn’t about your heritage, especially if you’re in Michigan. Unless…maybe you consider hate your heritage. If you’re at a rally supposedly to protest lockdown orders in your state, and your brought Swastikas, hate is your heritage. Your parents taught it to you and you’re probably teaching it to your kids.

Greg Gutfeld, one of the idiots at Fox News and an example of conservative humor was being serious when he argued…you’re gonna love this…that just because someone’s waving a flag with a Swastika on it, doesn’t mean they’re a Nazi.

I always thought that if you wave a flag, you believed in what it stood for. When a flag is waved, you look to see who salutes. Apparently, Republicans salute Swastikas. What’s the deal with Republicans apologizing and defending Nazis?

When you see a sticker for a…

Saturday Sensibilities …. “🗽#SavingOurSelves: New York Strong 🗽 …. “!!

NEW YORK STRONG

I’ve been following New York through Governor Cuomo’s briefings during this time of COVID-19.

I love Alicia Keys.

Today I found this video and I would like to share it with you!

Alicia Keys dedicates a special tribute to New York City as she performs her song “Empire State of Mind.”

BET announced an array of high-impact initiatives to support communities of color impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Black Americans are being disproportionately harmed by the health and financial devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. BET, in partnership with the NAACPUnited Way Worldwide and leaders in the African-American creative, civil rights and business communities, provided critical financial, educational and community support directly to the African Americans hardest hit by this crisis.

One of New York City’s most iconic landmarks is celebrating the efforts of medical workers responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

The top of the Empire State Building paid tribute despite rainy conditions, with red and white lights revolving around the famous needle to resemble the lights that accompany a siren. The building’s owners call the display “the heartbeat of America.”

Saturday Surprise …. “🎼 The Beatles: Let It Be” 🎼 …. !! “


~~May 2, 2020~~

LET IT BE

Taking a trip through memory lane. I grew up with this song, during my teen years. It’s ingrained in my mind and memories. It brings up warm and fuzzy feelings that are very much needed today.

The animation makes it even better.

Found it in a Facebook Page.

======================================

They recorded multiple versions of “Let It Be” in late January 1969 at Twickenham Studios for use in a documentary film also called Let It Be. They then re-recorded Paul McCartney‘s song on Jan. 31 at Apple Studios in an attempt to get a final take.

George Harrison added a guitar solo, recorded through a rotating Leslie speaker, on April 30, 1969, and that version ended up pressed for release as a George Martin-produced single on March 6 – of the following year.

By 1970, McCartney had returned to add still more elements to the song (while also recording over an original turn on bass by John Lennon), and Harrison added an entirely different solo.
