WHAT HORROR WE HAVE AWAKENED TO 

Paris Attacks Kill More Than 100, Police Say; Border Controls Tighter

The Paris area reeled Friday night, November 13, 2015, from a shooting rampage, explosions and mass hostage-taking that President François Hollande called an unprecedented terrorist attack on France. His government announced sharply increased border controls and heightened police powers as it mobilized the military in a national emergency.

French television and news services quoted the police as saying that around 100 people had been killed at a concert site where hostages had been held during a two-hour standoff with the police, and that perhaps dozens of others had been killed in apparently coordinated attacks outside the country’s main sports stadium and four other popular locations in the city.

But estimates on the total number of dead varied.

THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE … 

Gloria Marie Steinem (born March 25, 1934) is an American feminist, journalist, and social and political activist who became nationally recognized as a leader and spokeswoman for the feminist movement in the late 1960’s and early 70’s.

She was a columnist for New York magazine and a founder of Ms. Magazine.

In 1969, she published an article, “After Black Power, Women’s Liberation,” which brought her to national fame as a feminist leader.

In 2005, Steinem, Jane Fonda, and Robin Morgan co-founded the Women’s Media Center, an organization that works “to make women visible and powerful in the media.”

Steinem currently travels internationally as an organizer and lecturer and is a media spokeswoman on issues of equality.

THE RED CUP THAT WON’T GO AWAY

According to Starbucks, the holiday cup began in 1997 with a “jazz-themed design in jewel tones of deeper reds, greens and blues.” Each year since then, the coffee giant’s holiday cups return, and have become a corporate tradition in the process.

The cups make the transition from plain white to holiday-themed in November; this year they changed over on November 3.

Ellen’s Hilarious Response to the Red Cup Controversy

Over the weekend, Starbucks introduced new plain red “holiday” cups, which prompted some serious backlash from people who called the move part of the “War on Christmas” in America, and an overall assault on Christianity. It raised such a controversy that even presidential candidate Donald Trump addressed it.

Comedian Ellen Degeneres also had something to say about the holiday cups during the airing of “Ellen,” on Tuesday, November 10, 2-15.

“The old cups had snowflakes and santa’s sleigh and elves. You know, all the things you find in the Bible,” Ellen joked.

PROOF THAT THERE’S NO “WAR ON CHRISTMAS”

Starbucks released a statement addressing the controversy, saying in part that diversity and inclusion are important to the coffee company:

“Creating a culture of belonging, inclusion and diversity is one of the core values of Starbucks, and each year during the holidays the company aims to bring customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season,” the statement from Starbucks continued.

“Starbucks will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world.”

FACTS ABOUT PUERTO RICANS

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.

Google Doodle for today …. “Hedy Lamarr’s 101st Birthday Google Doodle”!!

GOOGLE DOODLE HONOR HEDY LAMARR

Google honors Hedy Lamarr, inventor of technology behind Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Renaissance woman Hedy Lamarr could not be accused of living a dull life. Even before fleeing her loveless marriage to a Nazi arms dealer to become a Hollywood star, Lamarr had captured international attention as the first female actor to simulate an orgasm in a non-pornographic film.

But none of this, presumably, is why Google has chosen to honor the Austrian-American with a Doodle on what would be her 101st birthday.

“Any girl can be glamorous, all you have to do is stand still and look stupid.”

Hedy Lamarr

She is remembered for her beauty on the silver screen, but the Hollywood actor spent her nights inventing a weapons communication system that was a precursor to wireless technologies including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler in 1914 in Vienna, Lamarr began acting as a teenager. At the age of 18, she starred in the scandalous 1930’s Czech film Ecstasy, in which she goes skinny dipping then, still completely nude, chases a runaway horse. Later on, she simulates an orgasm – the first female actor to do this in a theatrically-released film.

Married at 19 to a Nazi arms merchant – one of the richest men in Austria – Lamarr was virtually a prisoner in her own home, according to Trina Robbins, author of Hedy Lamarr and a Secret Communication System. It was during this time that Lamarr was first exposed to weapons technology – at numerous dinner parties where she listened to her husband and his guests discuss the technical aspects of weapons design.

She eventually fled the marriage and went to Hollywood, landing a seven-year, $3000-a-week contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. An immediate sensation, the hugely popular actor starred in films including Tortilla Flat, Lady of the Tropics, Boom Town, and Samson and Delilah.

IOTD …. Images of the day, #382 …. “Puerto Ricans ARE American Citizens”!!


PRCit

~~November 9, 2015~~ 

Puerto Rican citizenship was first legislated by the United States Congress in Article 7 of the Foraker Act of 1900 and later recognized in the Constitution of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rican citizenship existed before the U.S. takeover of the islands of Puerto Rico and continued afterwards. Its affirmative standing was also recognized before and after the creation of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico in 1952. Puerto Rican citizenship was recognized by the United States Congress in the early twentieth century and continues unchanged after the creation of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

On March 2, 1917, the Jones–Shafroth Act was signed, collectively making Puerto Ricans citizens without rescinding their Puerto Rican citizenship.

KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE

President Obama Rejects Keystone XL Pipeline Proposal

The pipeline would carry about 800,000 barrels of oil per day from Alberta to Gulf Coast refineries. Environmentalists worry about about the climate and environmental impacts the pipeline could have, including dramatically higher greenhouse gas emissions and a heightened risk of oil spills.

President Barack Obama announced Friday, November 6, 2015,  that he is rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline proposal, saying the project “would not serve the interests of the United States.”

The president cited concerns about the impact on the environment and a political climate that over-hyped the pipeline’s benefit.
