PUERTO RICAN WOMEN

I’m a proud Boricua woman

My heritage comes from Taíno, Spanish and African roots.

All of which I’m very proud of.

Many came before me … and in 1950, I was born!

The recorded history of women in Puerto Rico can trace its roots back to the era of the Taíno, the indigenous people of the Caribbean, who inhabited the island that they called “Borikén” before the arrival of Spaniards. During the Spanish colonization the cultures and customs of the Taíno, Spanish, African and women from non-Hispanic European countries blended into what became the culture and customs of Puerto Rico.

In the early part of the 19th Century the women in Puerto Rico were Spanish subjects and had little individual rights. Those who belonged to the upper class of the Spanish ruling society had better educational opportunities then those who did not. However, there were many women who were already active participants in the labor movement and in the agricultural economy of the island.

After Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States in 1898 as a result of the Spanish–American War, women once again played an integral role in Puerto Rican society by contributing to the establishment of the University of Puerto Rico, women’s suffrage, women’s rights, civil rights, and to the military of the United States.

During the period of industrialization of the 1950’s, many women in Puerto Rico found employment in the needle industry, working as seamstresses in garment factories. Many Puerto Rican families also migrated to the United States in the 1950’s.

Plight of Orangutans

~TOO POLITICAL?~

In spite of the political and daily problems the United Kingdom seems to be going through, it looks their concept of political advertisement goes along the correct path.

Can the US learn a lesson here?

I’m afraid not!

This ad violate laws against political advertising.

U.K. Ad Highlighting Plight of Orangutans Is Deemed Too ‘Political’ to Air
The animated commercial for the food retailer Iceland, featuring a baby orangutan, noted that the palm oil industry contributed to the destruction of rain forests and habitats.

“There’s a Rang-tan in my bedroom, and I don’t know what to do,” the British actress Emma Thompson says, lending her voice to a young girl in an animated advertisement for Iceland, a food retailer in Britain.

It turns out the “Rang-tan” is a baby orangutan that has lost its mother and the rain forest it once called home, and that it no longer has a place to live.

The story line might seem harmless enough, but the commercial wasn’t cleared this week to air on British TV because it was deemed to violate laws against political advertising.

The decision ignited a firestorm on social media in Britain and led to a wildly popular petition demanding that it be overturned. And to many in the United States, where more than $3 billion was spent on political advertising for the recent midterm elections, the reaction was total bafflement.

Really, many wondered, can political advertising be banned?

~THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW~

Michelle Obama is touring the country to promote her new book “Becoming“.

She visited Ellen DeGeneres on her show. 

We, the audience, had the pleasure of Michelle’s company for the full hour. She regaled us with stories, information, humor and her presence. She was a breath of fresh air.

In return, Ellen had a surprise for Michelle. 

You can watch it below.

It’s invaluable for me.

BECOMING

~Ellen DeGeneres and Michelle Obama~

I caught up with my recorded Ellen’s shows. I was looking forward to Michelle Obama’s visit. She was there for the whole hour.

This is what quality, class, dignity, kindness really is.

 Both of them have fun every time they are together.

Gotta love them!

Michelle Obama and Ellen Degeneres head to Costco for a Becoming book signing

On November 15, Thursday’s episode of The Ellen Show, the Former First Lady made an impromptu trip to Costco where her new book Becoming just happens to be on sale.

Not one to shy away from attention, DeGeneres was quick to announce Obama’s presence in the store, whipping out a megaphone and yelling,

“We have Michelle Obama! Michelle Obama! She’ll be signing books!” …

as screaming shoppers flocked to meet them.

Despite DeGeneres’ attempts to embarrass Obama, she made up for it by ending with the crowd chanting “We miss the Obamas.” Don’t we all?

~~Ellen & Michelle Obama Go to Costco~~

~~Published on Nov 15, 2018~~

Michelle Obama is on a book tour for her new memoir, “Becoming,” so Ellen thought the best place to set up an impromptu book signing was one of America’s favorite wholesale stores, Costco.

Watch as they sign books for unsuspecting fans, do some shopping, and Ellen provides a musical interlude just for the former First Lady.
