Frontline Workers …. “🙏🏽 HEROES: Let’s Not Forget Them 🙏🏽 …. “!!

~~June 15, 2020~~


In the midst of the very justified protests about #BlackLivesMatter, we have to make sure that we don’t forget about those who are still there helping the public during the COVID-19 lockdown and stay at home orders.

There’s been ‘reopening‘ where I live and the COVID-19 numbers are steadily increasing.

Still, I’m thankful for their service now and will always be!!


~Essential and Frontline Workers in the COVID-19 Crisis~

The “Great Lockdown” arising from the COVID-19 pandemic has not been universal – essential workers, who are vital for the core functions of the economy and the society, are still on the job. But not all essential workers face the same level of risk of infection. Some of these workers are “frontline” and must provide their labor in person while others can work from home. And some industries deemed essential have either shut down or are operating on a very limited basis so many of their employees are not working.

We analyze the characteristics of essential workers, and a subcategory of this group, frontline workers. We find that the broader group of essential workers comprises a large share of the labor force and tends to mirror its demographic characteristics. In contrast, the narrower category of frontline workers is, on average, less educated, has lower wages, and has a higher representation of minorities. These results hold even when accounting for industries that are currently shutdown or operating at a limited level.

Essential workers have been called on to meet our basic needs during the COVID-19 shutdown. A significant portion of these workers, frontline workers, cannot work remotely. Our analysis shows that, on average, frontline workers are disproportionately less educated and minority workers, earning below average wages and with a substantial share of workers in the bottom wage quartile.

My Momoa Monday Moment …. “🌺 ‘Geekout, All Blacks Fanboy’ 🌺 …. “!!

~~June 15, 2020~~


It’s Monday!! The Momoa Moment Day … let’s go hunting for photos, videos and plenty of fun!

Let’s see what this one is all about.



Jason geeks out meeting his favourite team of all time – the All Blacks 7s!

He also shares the story about where he got his cherished All Blacks #8 jersey.

Jason Momoa’s All Blacks jersey belonged to Zinzan Brooke. The Kiwi great wore the shirt in the 1991 Rugby World Cup quarter-final against Canada.

The New Zealand national rugby union team, commonly known as the All Blacks, represents New Zealand in men’s international rugby union, which is considered the country’s national sport.

The team won the Rugby World Cup in 2011 and 2015, as well as in the inaugural tournament in 1987.

Slippery When Stupid

I watched the clip seen all over the world: #WaterGait … “Trump had a sudden trip to Walter Reed Medical Center that wasn’t on his schedule. The White House only explained it as getting a jump start on his annual physical. Most doctors don’t do physicals in installments. There is something wrong there.” … I agree!! There is something WRONG!!



Gerald Ford was a clumsy president. And I’m not talking with policy though that Nixon pardon was a huge mess, but Ford literally fell down the steps of Air Force One. He had a bum knee from playing college football and maybe the steps were wet. Shit happens, right? But he also fell UP the steps of Air Force One. That’s clumsy. And as clumsy as Ford was, I can’t find any quotes from the guy lying about it.

The only reason Donald Trump hasn’t literally fallen down since he became president (sic) is that he has low energy. He walks slow. He takes baby steps. He avoids stairs and rain. He even holds cups with both hands. He does all this because he has a fear the “fake news” will catch it and broadcast it on TV. OK, but if “fake news” shows him falling down after he falls…

World News — 2020

WORLD NEWS … “Remember North Korea? Well the sis of Lil Kim has made her feelings known … and Poland invaded the Czech Republic last month in what one official has called a “misunderstanding,” the BBC reports.”

In Saner Thought

There is a lot of news in the country these days……from Covid-19 to Minneapolis to Atlanta to… any world news gets lost in the media noise of the day……

I watch international news for those stories that may inform or entertain……these are a couple of reports that did not make the nightly news…..

Remember North Korea?

Well the sis of Lil Kim has made her feelings known….

The powerful sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un threatened military action against South Korea as she bashed Seoul on Saturday over declining bilateral relations and its inability to stop activists from floating anti-Pyongyang leaflets across the border, the AP reports. Describing South Korea as an “enemy,” Kim Yo Jong repeated an earlier threat she had made by saying Seoul will soon witness the collapse of a “useless” inter-Korean liaison office in the border town of Kaesong. Kim, who is first vice…

Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

Everything is because of our perception and their mere existence! Cane we say we are all connected? … “We cannot point out one thing that is not here – time, space, the earth, the rain, the minerals in the soil, the sunshine, the cloud, the river, the heat. Everything co-exists with this sheet of paper … This sheet of paper is, because everything else is.” – Thich Nhat Hanh, from “Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life”

Live & Learn

If you are a poet, you will see clearly that there is a cloud floating in this sheet of paper. Without a cloud, there will be no rain; without rain, the trees cannot grow: and without trees, we cannot make paper. The cloud is essential for the paper to exist. If the cloud is not here, the sheet of paper cannot be here either…

If we look into this sheet of paper even more deeply, we can see the sunshine in it. If the sunshine is not there, the forest cannot grow. In fact nothing can grow. Even we cannot grow without sunshine. And so, we know that the sunshine is also in this sheet of paper…

And if we continue to look we can see the logger who cut the tree and brought it to the mill to be transformed into paper.

And we see the wheat. We know…
