FEELING THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

Pocoyo (Pocoyó in Spanish) is a Spanish pre-school animated television series created by Guillermo García Carsí, Luis Gallego and David Cantolla, and is a co-production between Spanish producer Zinkia Entertainment, Cosgrove-Hall Films and Granada International.

Two series have been produced, each consisting of 52 seven-minute episodes. English actor and comedian Stephen Fry narrates the English-language version and José María del Río narrates the Castilian Spanish version of the first two seasons, while Stephen Hughes narrates the third season, called Let’s Go Pocoyo.

Set in a 3D space, with a plain white background and usually no backdrops, it is about Pocoyo, a 4-year-old boy, interacting with his friends Pato (a duck), Elly (an elephant) and Loula (a dog).

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Something to think about …. “Where does IT go?”!!

THE LIFE CYCLE OF TRASH

Once we have taken out the trash, we often forget that it all has to go somewhere. But not many of us know exactly where it goes, nor do we usually think about it.

The Life Cycle of Garbage shows what happens to your trash once it leaves your home, to give you an idea of where it ends up and how much of it there really is.

BlueBor

The Life Cycle of Garbage begins in your home

Your kitchen trash can fills up …

So you take the garbage bag out to your curbside trash container …

And the garbage man comes to empty it …

BlueBor

What happens to all your trash once the garbage man takes it away?

Typically it goes to a Transfer Station …

 A transfer station is where local trash is taken and dumped before it is transferred to its final destination. The final destination could be:

A Landfill … 

where the waste is buried and left to decompose, a process which takes hundreds of years even for biodegradable materials …

An Incinerator …

 where the garbage is burned and turns into ash and heat, sometimes used to generate energy (called waste-to-energy) …

Or a Recycling Center … 

where it will be transferred to a manufacturing plant so these materials can be used to make new products!

Or In the Ocean …

If waste is not correctly managed, it can end up harming the environment and polluting our air and water.

BlueBor

Illegally dumped trash and litter can end up:

Littering our Communities …

 This is why it is so important that we put our trash into the proper containers and recycle as much as we can. Garbage does not simply disappear once it leaves our homes, it all ends up somewhere and has an impact on every single person in some way.

Small actions can have a huge impact.

My friend Veronica …. needs all the help she can get!!


~~October 20, 2014~~

In her own words … 

“I had a car accident a few weeks ago.

The person who hit my car was on his cell phone. He never saw me and t-boned me on the driver’s side, making my car spin.The person that hit me has a minimum PIP coverage.

Between his insurance and mine, there is not enough to cover the cost of all medical expenses. I’m unemployed at this moment and I don’t have any medical insurance as an alternative to cover these expenses. My immediate family and friends are already helping me as much as they can.

In addition, I have a previous medical condition and due to the accident it has aggravated my injury seriously. This previous injury is the reason for my unemployment; my doctor declared me disabled a few of years ago.

Due to this car accident, the hospital bill is estimated around $77,000.00 and it could be more. This amount doesn’t include any medications, orthopedic equipment, which I am will need at home, doctors’ office appointments, and physical therapy.

A friend mentioned this site as an alternative for me at this difficult time in my life. Any help I could receive will be extremely appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your support. God Bless,

Veronica.”

By chance …. or purposeful photobomb??


~~October 12, 2014~~

This crow in Aberdeen won at photo-bombing

Photobombing is the act of accidentally or purposely putting oneself into the view of a photograph, often in order to play a practical joke on the photographer or the subjects. Andrea Den Hoed suggests that the photo-bomb label “implies a narrative of surreptitious sabotage,” although in the sense of unintended and/or initially unnoticed people in the background of spoiled photographs, photo-bombs have existed for much of the history of photography.

Think the crow did this on purpose?

Christa McAuliffe …. would have been 66 years old today!!


CMG

~~September 2, 2014~~ 

CHRISTA McAULIFFE …. would have celebrated her 66th birthday today.

I remember her joy, I remember her smile, I remember her enthusiasm. I remember where I was, watching the launching of the Challenger that fatal day! 

On January 28, 1986, the shuttle exploded 73 seconds after launch. After her death, schools and scholarships were named in her honor, and also in 2004 she was posthumously awarded the Congressional Space Medal of Honor.

Today in Mighty Girl history, we remember teacher and Space Shuttle Challenger crew member Christa McAuliffe, who would have celebrated her 66th birthday today. McAuliffe was selected by NASA from more than 11,000 applicants to be part of the Teachers in Space program. Tragically, she and the Challenger’s six other crew members were killed when it exploded during takeoff on January 28, 1986.

C20

As a child, McAuliffe was inspired by space exploration; the day after astronaut John Glenn orbited the Earth, she told a friend at her high school, “Do you realize that someday people will be going to the Moon? Maybe even taking a bus, and I want to do that!” Ultimately, McAuliffe choose to pursue her passion for teaching and accepted a position at Concord High School in New Hampshire in 1982. According to the NY Times, as a history teacher, she “emphasized the impact of ordinary people on history, saying they were as important to the historical record as kings, politicians or generals.”

In 1984, President Ronald Reagan announced the Teacher In Space project. NASA began seeking out a gifted teacher who could broadcast lessons from space with the goal of fostering public interest in space exploration. McAuliffe applied immediately, writing in her application, “I watched the Space Age being born, and I would like to participate.” Her selection was announced on July 19, 1985, and she began training for time in space and making media appearances, where her enthusiasm and excitement captivated the nation.

Just 73 seconds into McAuliffe’s long-awaited flight, at an altitude of 48,000 feet, the shuttle Challenger exploded; an event witnessed on TV by millions. Though, at the age of 37, her life was cut tragically short, McAuliffe’s legacy lives on today: there are schools, scholarships, grants, and even a moon crater named after her. But we at A Mighty Girl think she’d be happiest to know that students everywhere still dream of touching space; as she said during a media appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson,

“If you’re offered a seat on a rocket ship, don’t ask what seat. Just get on.”
