ANYTHING IS DANGEROUS … WHILE A WOMAN

ONLINE EPIDEMIC OF VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

… to generations of terrified men hiding behind screens!

I found this video this morning as I ‘surfed’ through my Facebook feed.

This weekend I watched the ‘Michael Moore in Trumpland‘ movie.

It’s interesting to me how the message that Agnes Török ties in with Moore’s movie and the fact that there’s the first woman nominee for President of the United States.

Please, listen to her.

Her message is amazing!

~The Project~
The Dangerous Women Project is an initiative of the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh.

The Project asks: what does it mean to be a ‘dangerous woman’?

The idea that women are dangerous individually or collectively permeates many historical periods, cultures and areas of contemporary life (despite, and in some instances in response to, explicitly feminist movements).

We may take lightly the label attached by mainstream media outlets to women such as Shami Chakrabarti of Liberty, or Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as being ‘the most dangerous woman in the UK’.

But behind this label lies a serious set of questions about the dynamics, conflicts, identities and power relations with which women live today.

The Dangerous Women Project will curate 365 responses to those questions from all over the world between International Women’s Day 2016 and International Women’s Day 2017.

LATINOS

Because of the current political climate, Latinos are fully at the forefront of the national discourse.

However, one partivular candidate and many of his followers may equate ‘Latino’ to ‘Mexican’.

Take a note, the Mexican flag is representative of their country.

Yet, there are as many other flags as there are countried in Central and South America.

Get your facts straight!

As Latinos, we stick together.

What touches one, touches all.

Crashing a College Party …. It’s On Us …. Important Mission …. “!!

IT’S ON US

It’s On Us is an education based campaign focusing on sexual assault awareness and prevention on college campuses.

It’s On Us advocates for a cultural shift surrounding sexual assault, by identifying what sexual assault is and situations in which it is beneficial to step in and prevent sexual assault from happening.

~Wikipedia~

redlineb

To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.

To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.

To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.

To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

Vice President Joe Biden and Adam Devine Crashed a College Party for an Important Mission

Vice President Joe Biden has a bit of a reputation as a fun-loving party animal.

So when Adam Devine needed a crime-fighting partner for an undercover operation at a college party, he knew just who to call.

A new video from Funny or Die features Biden and Devine crashing frat parties to help get the word out about a serious issue that affects college kids everywhere—sexual assault on campus, an issue that Biden has been vocal about, particularly in the wake of Stanford sexual assault case.

Biden and Devine drop the act to share their important message, though, reminding viewers how they can help prevent sexual assault.

The video is a collaboration between the White House-launched It’s On Us campaign and Funny or Die, the people behind Between Two Ferns.

How did I missed this?

I can’t believe it.

It was pointed out to me this morning by an American Facebook friend.

(Thank you, Kat!)

I went to their Facebook Page and their Website.

This is amazing!

So much information!

Very interesting to note that all stories are similar.

Project ñ is a multi-platform media project for one of the fastest growing populations in the US today

First Generation American/US born Latinos.

The central organizing principle of the project is that first-generation American born Latinos or Enyes (ñ), share a distinct identity, shaped by their experience growing up between two cultures.

Their “home” culture reflects the heritage and traditions of their family’s country of origin and is often in conflict with the mainstream American culture they experience everywhere else.

Driving awareness of the shared Enye (ñ) experience, and giving it a name, generates a powerful sense of belonging for a population struggling to understand where they fit in.

“Autumn Leaves”

The falling leaves
Drift by my window
The falling leaves
Of red and gold

I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold

Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I’ll hear
Old winter’s song

But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall

Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I’ll hear
Old winter’s song

But I miss you most of all
My darling
When autumn leaves
Start to fall ….

Restored footage of Eva Cassidy performing Autumn Leaves.

The performance took place at the Blues Alley jazz supper club in Georgetown, DC, on the 3rd January 1996.

Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 – November 2, 1996) was an American vocalist and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country, rock and pop classics.

In 1992, she released her first album, The Other Side, a set of duets with go-go musician Chuck Brown, followed by the 1996 live solo album titled Live at Blues Alley. Although she had been honored by the Washington Area Music Association, she was virtually unknown outside her native Washington, D.C.

She died of melanoma in 1996.

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS

On this rainy day, Angelika, my oldest grand-daughter, got out of school a noon.

We’ve been meaning to do something together.

This movie was on our “must see” list.

Off we went and we had a great time.

We both loved the movie.

Here’s some info and the trailer for it.

Enjoy!

HortyRex©

GoldSwirl

Kubo and the Two Strings is a 2016 American 3D stop-motion fantasy action adventure film, directed by Travis Knight, written by Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, and produced by Laika.

The film features the voices of Art Parkinson, Charlize Theron, Matthew McConaughey, Ralph Fiennes, Rooney Mara and George Takei.

GoldSwirl

~PLOT~

In ancient Japan, Kubo (Art Parkinson) is a young boy who lives with his ill mother, Sariatu (Charlize Theron), in a cave on top of a mountain. Every day he goes out to a nearby village to tell stories by manipulating pieces of paper that form into origami that moves under music played from Kubo’s shamisen.

He tells tales of great warriors seeking revenge while battling monsters, primarily of a samurai warrior named Hanzo, who is Kubo’s missing father. Every day he quickly returns to his mother when the town bell chimes signaling sunset. She instructs him not to stay outside after dark or her Sisters (his aunts) and his grandfather, the Moon King, will come to take his remaining eye, as they took the other when he was a baby.

One day, Kubo learns of a ceremony where family members communicate with deceased loved ones (Obon). He arrives at a cemetery and tries to speak to his father, but he leaves in anger when his father does not respond to him. Because Kubo has stayed outside after sundown, his mother’s Sisters (Rooney Mara) find him and try to take his eye. After they destroy the village, his mother arrives to fend off her Sisters.

His mother sends Kubo away by touching a beetle crest on his robe which gives him wings, forcing him to fly away from his mother. She tells him to find his father’s armor in order to protect Kubo from his grandfather’s evil spirits. He takes a piece of her hair before she is seemingly killed by her Sisters.

GoldSwirlHortAngGoldSwirl

Upon his return to the village, he is able to reclaim the helmet and puts it on. He is greeted by Raiden (Ralph Fiennes), the ghost that appeared to Kubo in his dream. Raiden is revealed to be his grandfather, the Moon King. The Moon King, who needs Kubo’s eye to rid Kubo of all his powers and memories, transforms into the “Moon Beast” and fights Kubo. Kubo is defeated and tossed into the cemetery where the Moon King corners him as well as the surviving villagers.

Kubo retaliates by taking off the armor and repairs his shamisen using the hair of his mother, his father’s bowstring, and one of his own hairs. He uses its magic to recruit the spirits of the villagers’ deceased, showing that memories are the strongest form of magic and can never be destroyed. The Moon King is defeated and becomes mortal, and in his human form has no recollection of who or what he was.

The villagers make him believe that he is a good man. After the villagers set their lanterns near a lake, Kubo is able to speak with his parents and make peace with them, saying that he is happy he was able to go on a journey with them.

They then appear beside him in the form of spirits.

NOTHING HAPPENS BY CHANCE

All Coincidences Have Meaning Nothing Happens by Chance

Have you ever experienced a coincidence so incredible that it left you stunned?

If so, then you have just taken a step into the amazing world of Synchronicity.

What happens in most people’s lives is beyond their control.

Think about it, no matter how carefully you design your life, you cannot know how that design will be affected by a single random event. One small detail can and will change everything.

JOANNA RANTS

If we are really true to ourselves, we do know that once in a while there’s a need to say a cuss word.

There are times that no word can replace said cuss word.

The irreverent use is irreplaceable.

The energy, the frustration, the release … is something that I’m sure we have all felt.

The ability to speak at least two languages fluently  “enhance” even more the moment when the perfect cuss word comes out.

Ahh! … that feeling that comes when the word is comes out of our lips.

DISCLAIMER

There’s no intention whatsoever in offending anyone.

This is all done in good fun.

Relax.

Enjoy a moment away from the seriousness of life.
