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!”

Puerto Ricans (Spanish: Puertorriqueños; Taíno: boricua) are the inhabitants or citizens of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is a multi-ethnic nation, home to people of different ethnic and national backgrounds. As a result, some Puerto Ricans do not treat their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities and national origins comprising the “Puerto Rican people“.

Despite its multi-ethnic composition, the culture held in common by most Puerto Ricans is referred to as mainstream Puerto Rican culture, a Western culture largely derived from the traditions of Western European migrants, beginning with the early Spanish settlers, along with other Europeans arriving later such as the Corsicans, Irish, Germans and French, along with a strong West African culture which has been influential.

Puerto Ricans commonly refer to themselves as boricuas. “The majority of Puerto Ricans regard themselves as being of mixed Spanish-European descent. Recent DNA sample studies have concluded that the three largest components of the Puerto Rican genetic profile are in fact indigenous Taíno, European, and African”.

To call hunting “sport” is more than a misnomer: it’s an imprecision that has the effect of enlarging society’s acceptance of gun use generally.

When hunting is called “sport,” it becomes wrapped in the same benign mantle as our familiar, non-lethal games of athletic activity and physical competition.

THE CECIL ACT PASSES

BREAKING

The US House of Representatives just voted to pass H.R.2494,

the Global Anti-‪#‎Poaching‬ Act.

Special thanks to House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce and Ranking Member Eliot Engel for introducing the Act and championing it through to a vote. Building off the momentum from the Enough Project‘s event on the Hill last week, October 2015, this act is a crucial step in the effort to break the links between wildlife trafficking networks and mass atrocities.

This is an incredible victory, and one YOU made happen!

This is truly Justice For Cecil The Lion!

Bill Description
Representative Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), the Committee’s Ranking member, introduced H.R. 2494, the Global Anti-Poaching Act. This legislation will help the United States and partner countries counter terrorist organizations, rebel groups, and international criminal syndicates that are profiting from international wildlife trafficking.

Background
The Global Anti-Poaching Act will help the worldwide fight against illicit poaching by aiding governments fighting wildlife trafficking. Illegal trafficking in ivory and rhino horn is directly responsible for shocking declines in elephant and rhino populations in recent years, and this bill is a crucial step toward reducing the threat to these animals on the ground.

The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement (SMART is an acronym for “Sophisticating Minds And Revolutionizing Thought“) attempts to “promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop.

To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large.”

Terror

~~October 22, 2015~~ 

THINK ABOUT IT

Almost as long as there has been life, war has been a part of it.

Mankind continues to wage war even though the consequences often breed nothing but misery.

However, when a person is called to defend his or her country, or protect other defenseless people, it is his duty to fight.

There is no question that there is evil in the world and we must not rest on our laurels and say it is none of our business.

We cannot stand by and watch while others are being persecuted.

It is the duty of mankind to uphold justice.

IF ONLY …..

At the end of the day …. “Syria … One Very Hot Mess”!!

ONE VERY HOT MESS

After four years of Syria’s war, no end in sight

Syria’s rebellion has been derailed by ISIL and waning Western support, but rebels say they haven’t lost fight

BrownBord

Four years ago, tens of thousands of Syrians who took to the streets during the first days of rage against 40 years of authoritarian rule by the Assad family. The protests, demanding democratic reform, were peaceful, but the regime cracked down violently. Many anti-regime activists responded by taking up arms, and full-scale war soon erupted.

After the deaths of more than 220,000 people, the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remains unmoved, and the struggle for control of Syria has devolved into a multifaceted war with no clear endgame in sight.

Regime forces have only accelerated their use of internationally prohibited barrel bombs and other brutal weaponry against rebel fighters and civilians alike, according to human rights groups. And so far, Assad’s key allies have been steadfast. Russia’s support on the U.N. Security Council has been crucial, recently blocking a referral of Assad to the International Criminal Court for war crimes, and Iran has been a steady source of funds and fighters, sending Iranian militias — along with Lebanese Shia Hezbollah fighters — against the Syrian rebels, who are mostly Sunni.

Flags

The international community has all but abandoned the idea of peace talks after several summits in Geneva — involving rebel factions, the regime and both sides’ foreign benefactors — ended in failure last year. The leading Western-backed opposition faction, the Syrian National Coalition, insisted on Assad’s departure as a condition for any talks; Assad, of course, dismissed that notion out of hand.

Absent a surge in Western support for the rebels, however, many analysts feel Syria is heading toward a situation in which Assad retains control of most of the important population centers, from Damascus in the south to Lattakia along the Mediterranean coast, while various armed groups, including ISIL, fight over the rest. In effect, Assad could turn into Syria’s “strongest warlord,” Lund said.

“I think the idea is that Syria will not be a united country for a very long time to come, if ever.”

That outcome is not what the 2011 revolutionaries had in mind. Ahmad, the former Revolutionary Command spokeswoman, said her side is trying to convince the world that the uprising against Assad is everyone’s war. ISIL, she noted, has ambitions of expanding beyond its current territory in Syria and Iraq.

“Syrians feel the world has abandoned them,” she said. “But maybe when you have nothing left to lose, you become more determined to fight to the end.”

Meanwhile, millions of refugees are burdening Syria’s neighbors, who fear their guests will become a permanent and destabilizing presence unless the war ends.

Something to think about …. “Who is a strong person?”!!


StrongP

~~October 15, 2015~~ 

STRONG PERSON

Life is hard … but a strong person
knows how to keep their life in order.
Even with tears in their eyes,

they still manage to say ” I’m OK ” with a smile.

These people were raised right;  maybe told a lie or two.

Never grew up saying awful words.

“If I ever did that I’d never see daylight”.
There are many things in life to mess up.

The biggest one is your life.

Many ways to mess up.

It’s not about coloring inside the lines.
Not about getting it right the first try.

No one is perfect it takes time.

A strong person would get up
and brush themselves off after being knocked down.

They know when to give up a fight.

You can beat them and they won’t fight back.

A strong person keeps their promises.
” I was told to never make a promise you can’t keep.”

Breaking a promise is like breaking a heart hard to fix,
cutting yourself on the lies and peaces.

A strong person always stands by their family’s side no matter what.

CHARGES DROPPED IN ZIMBABWE

Zimbabwe Drops Charges Against Lion Murderer Walter Palmer

“All his papers were in order.”

Zimbabwe has announced that it will not be charging American dentist Walter Palmer in the illegal killing of #CecilTheLion. The hunt’s guide, though, is being prosecuted.

Palmer was the subject of social media outrage in July when he shot and wounded a famous lion just outside Hwange National Park. It soon emerged that the lion had been lured out of the park illegally. While Palmer admitted to killing the animal, he maintained that he believed the hunt to be legal.

Good Question: “Why Are We Wasting So Much Food?”!!


FWaste2

~~October 13, 2015~~

A WORLD OF WASTE

As I was growing up, I remember my parents telling me to eat everything off my plate.

There was no food to be wasted.

Other statements where: eat it all, there are people all over the world that don’t have enough to eat.

I’m sure many have heard those words.

We are also “informed” about how many people endure hunger worldwide.

We wonder why that happens when we are in the “land of plenty”.

Take a look …. and open your eyes.

Food waste or food loss is food that is discarded or lost uneaten. The causes of food waste or loss are numerous, and occur at the stages of production, processing, retailing and consumption.

As of 2013, half of all food is wasted worldwide, according to the British Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Today, America is considered to be one of the most wasteful countries in the world, especially when it comes down to food. We, as Americans, spend close to $200 billion a year just on waste and obesity alone. Most American households dump anywhere between 20-25% of the food they buy each year.

This adds to an alarming $43 billion a year that is, metaphorically speaking, just going down the drain!

Not only do households waste a lot of food, but grocery stores and restaurants do as well! It has been estimated that grocery stores and restaurants throw out over 35 million tons of food each year at an annual cost of $30 billion! And what’s really sad is almost 12% of the food waste that are in our landfills (see image below) come from unharvested crops that were never picked due to there not being a high demand for the crop at the time.
