ANGELINA JOLIE

Actress and director Jolie, a special envoy of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, appealed for unity and accountability for some 4 million Syrian refugees. She has made 11 visits to Syrian refugees in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Malta.

“We cannot look at Syria, and the evil that has arisen from the ashes of indecision, and think this is not the lowest point in the world’s ability to protect and defend the innocent,” Jolie told the 15-member Security Council.

“Those refugees cannot come to this council, so please, will you go to them,” said Jolie, who also berated the council for failing to overcome divisions to end the war.

UNITED NATIONS

Actress Angelina Jolie pleaded with world powers Friday to help the millions of Syrian refugees, sharply criticizing the U.N. Security Council for being paralyzed by its division over Syria’s four-year conflict.

Jolie said the council must now “work as one,” and she said she would like to see the foreign minister of each of the 15 council members come to the table to negotiate a political solution.

She also urged council members to visit Syrian refugees and see the crisis for themselves.

In addition, Jolie spoke briefly about the rising migrant crisis on the Mediterranean, where more than 1,300 migrants fleeing Syria and other places have drowned at sea over the past three weeks.

“It is sickening to see thousands of refugees drowning on the doorstep of the world’s wealthiest continent,” she said. “No one risks the lives of their children in this way except out of utter desperation.”

In January, Jolie appealed for urgent funding to assist millions of displaced Iraqis and Syrians living in dire conditions in northern Iraq.

More than 3.8 million Syrians have fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt, according to the UNHCR, while another 7.6 million Syrians are displaced inside the country. At least 1.8 million Iraqis were also displaced last year by violence triggered by the Sunni militant onslaught.

~~August 13. 2014~~

INTERNATIONAL LEFTHANDERS DAY

I’m revamping and rebloging this post from last year because it applies today.

I’m proud ro count myself with the “southpaws” or the left-handed people. In spite of my age, I was never forced to be anything else. Never was my left hand tied in the back and never was I forced to use the right hand for any activity.

I think that, because of this, I’m kinda ambidextrous.

Like all the “lefties”, I’m special.

LEFT HANDED PEOPLE ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND

What do Barack Obama, Paul McCartney, Bart Simpson, Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Prince William and HuffPost UK’s editor-in-chief Stephen Hull all have in common?

(And please, include me there. I’m a leftie too.)

They’re all left-handed – just like 10% of the world’s population.

Today, August 13, 2014, is International Lefthanders Day – a day that celebrates the uniqueness and differences of lefties around the world.

This special occasion was first observed on the 13th of August, 1976. The purpose of this initiative was to promote awareness of the inconveniences facing left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world.

While it had been observed on August 13 of each year by many left-handers since 1976, Left-handers Day was declared by the Left-Hander’s Day Club on August 13, 1996.

Left-handers Day is now celebrated world-wide. Reportedly, in the United Kingdom alone, there have been over 20 events that mark this celebration. These events include celebrating a left-hander’s creativity, adaptability and athleticism.

For thousands of years, being left-handed was associated with being ‘touched by the devil,’ but in the above video Tara Long tells us some interesting facts about being left-handed.

Studies have shown that lefties are more likely to earn more, be more successful at sports and be more creative in general.

In reality, being left-handed is pretty awesome.

~~WHY SOUTHPAW?~~

“In Reel Life: Rocky is a lefty. He tells Adrian that he’s a southpaw, and explains the term’s etymology to her: ‘You know where southpaw comes from? I’ll tell ya.

A long time ago there was this guy, maybe a couple a hundred years ago, he was fighting around, I think it was around Philadelphia, and his arm — he was left-handed — and his arm was facing toward New Jersey, you see? And that’s south. So then naturally they call him south paw. You see? South paw, south Jersey, South Camden, south paw. You know what I mean?”

It is a term used in many sports for left handers. Another theory, which has attracted little following, is that an unnamed lefthander from Southpaw, Illinois once tried out for the Cubs and this inspired the Chicago writers to start calling all left-handers southpaws. However, no maps of Illinois reveal a town by that name.
