LIL BUB BRINGS .. CHRISTMAS IS HERE

BUB is a very special one of a kind critter.

More specifically, she is the most amazing cat on the planet.

In July of 2011, she was discovered as the runt of a healthy feral litter in a tool shed in rural Indiana at only a few weeks old. She was taken in as a rescue when it was clear that she would require special care. Since then BUB has become one of the most famous cats on planet.

She is a published author, a talk show host, the star of an award winning documentary, and has helped raise over $200,000 for animals in need.

Shortly after turning one year old, BUB was diagnosed with an exceptionally rare bone condition called osteopetrosis.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

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!”

At the end of the day …. “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story”!!


EatD2

~~June 19, 2015~~ 

Americans waste more food than any country in the world. The actual facts are shameful.

Studies show that the average American Family of four throws away 40% of the food they purchase! That means almost half of what we put in our grocery carts ends up in a land fill.

When that is included with discarded food from our gardens, fruit trees and fields, well over 50% of what is produced (meat, fruit, vegetables, and dairy) is wasted.

Just Eat It is a 74-minute documentary film about food waste and food rescue by Peg Leg Films in partnership with British Columbia’s Knowledge Network.

We all love food.

As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?

Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. In a nation where one in 10 people is food insecure, the images they capture of squandered groceries are both shocking and strangely compelling. But as Grant’s addictive personality turns full tilt towards food rescue, the ‘thrill of the find’ has unexpected consequences.

Featuring interviews with TED lecturer, author and activist Tristram Stuart and acclaimed author Jonathan Bloom, Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiration dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.

Waddle all the Way …. “Penguin Fail”!!

~~March 5, 2015~~ 

Fauna: An Adorable Blooper Reel of Penguins Slipping on Ice

For Penguin Fail, above, the filmmakers behind the BBC documentary Spy in the Huddle combed through their mountain of footage to capture the most awkward and hilarious moments. With nearly a million views since the video went live on YouTube earlier this month, they have a viral hit on their hands.

You might think that these aquatic birds would be surefooted on icy terrain but they slip and tumble just like us bipedal humans. Luckily, thanks to their round construction, they seem to bounce rather than collapse. Some even seem human when they recover: They collect themselves, shake it off, and then look around to see if anyone else noticed. 

Some of the penguin’s-eye-view shots in the film might have been captured with the “snowball cam,” one of many “spycams” John Downer Productions used in the making of the film.

Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have counter-shaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers.

Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.

Although all penguin species are native to the Southern Hemisphere, they are not found only in cold climates, such as Antarctica. In fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. Several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the Galápagos penguin, lives near the equator.

This Video Exposes The Truth About Our Corrupt World And What Humanity Has Become

”If we all look at our inner most desire, we will see our dreams are not so different. We share a common goal – Happiness. We tear apart the world looking for joy, without ever looking within ourselves”

Liv12

This is a short documentary film made by Spencer Cathcart questioning our freedom, the education system, corporations, money, the American capitalist system, the US government, world collapse, the environment, climate change, genetically modified food, and our treatment of animals.

I urge you to listen it the whole way through. If everyone in the world would hear every word in this video and then act upon their feelings the world would change overnight.

At this moment you can be anywhere, doing anything. Instead you sit alone before a screen.  So what is stopping us from doing what we want, being where we wanna be?

Each day we wake up in the same room, following the same path to live the same day as yesterday. Yet at one time, each day was a new adventure. Along the way something changed.  Before, our days were timeless, now our days are scheduled. Is this what it means to be grownup, to be free, but are we really free?  Food, water and land, the very elements we need to survive are owned by corporations.

If you try to take what earth provides you’ll be locked away, so we obey their rules.

To start the day …. “Lest We Forget”!!


~~November 11, 2014~~ 

History of Veterans Day
World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

Lolita: Slave to Entertainment …. another captive orca!!


~~November 10, 2014~~ 

Lolita is a 20-foot-long (6 m), 7,000 pounds (3,200 kg) orca who has lived at the Miami Seaquarium for over 40 years

Many years ago, I visited Miami. One of the highlights of the trip was to go to the Miami Seaquarium to see Lolita’s show. How naive I was at the time!

After that, several times, I’ve visited two of the Sea World Parks: Orlando and San Diego.

NEVER AGAIN!!

OrcaB

“Lolita …. slave to entertainment”

Man versus nature; in the summer of 1970 a barbaric hunt kills five orca whales and destroys the lives of countless others. Six young orcas are ripped away from their family, sold to marine parks, and shipped across the world to enter into a life of slavery. Three decades later only one survives. And she just so happens to be Miami’s biggest performer.

“Lolita: Slave to Entertainment” is a stirring wake up call. For those who have visited a marine park, for those who think they might do so in the future, and for those who simply wish to know the truth about performing marine mammals, this film is a ‘must see.'”

~~James Laveck Tribe of Heart~~

(Producer of the award winning doc. The Witness)

Lolita

On August 8, 1970 Lolita was caught in Penn Cove, Puget Sound, WA. She was one of seven young whales sold to marine parks around the world from a roundup of over 80 orcas conducted by Ted Griffin and Don Goldsberry, partners in a capture operation known as Namu, Inc. Tokitae, as she was originally named, was purchased by Seaquarium veterinarian Dr. Jesse White for about $6,000 (the referenced article reports $20,000). On arriving to the Seaquarium Lolita joined another Southern Resident Orca named Hugo who was captured some time before Lolita and had lived in the park two years before her arrival. Tokitae was renamed Lolita “after the heroine in Vladimir Nabokov’s novel by The News.”

She and Hugo lived together for 10 years in what is known as the Whale Bowl, a tank 60-by-80-foot (18 by 24 m) by 20 feet (6 m) deep. Even though the pair mated many times (once to the point of suspending shows) the two never produced any offspring. Hugo died March 4, 1980 after repeatedly smashing his head into the walls of the tank in what has been described as an act of suicide. Since then, Lolita has lived in the Whale Bowl together with a pair of Pacific White Sided dolphins.

SaveLol

Lolita has suffered in the same barren tank at the Miami Seaquarium for close to 44 years. She lives a solitary life, performing in depressing daily shows for tourists. Her tank is the smallest for an Orca in North America, and despite being in violation of the Animal Welfare Act, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has yet to acknowledge these glaring discrepancies.

Lolita was captured from the waters of Washington State where her mother “Ocean Sun” and extended family (L-Pod) still live (Ocean Sun shown in video at 3:54). L-Pod is a resident group of orcas which researchers have sighted regularly over many decades. The key factor standing between reunion of Lolita with her pod has been refusal by the Miami Seaquarium owners to allow for her retirement.

Marine mammal experts have proposed a plan (http://savelolita.org/the-plan) in which Lolita would be transferred to a coastal sea pen, and, once she re-learns the skills necessary for survival, rejoin her family in the wild. Even if it is determined that Lolita is unable to recover from the years spent alone in a tank, she deserves to live as natural a life as possible.
