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?

She visited Ellen DeGeneres on her show.

In return, Ellen had a surprise for Michelle. 

You can watch it below.

It’s invaluable for me.

Sculpture Coralarium Where Land, Sea and Art collide Fairmont Hotel, Sirru Fen Fushi, Maldives The Sculpture Coralarium is situated in the centre of the largest developed coral lagoon in the Maldives, on the island resort of Fairmont Sirru Fen Fushi.

The artwork by Jason deCaires Taylor is a semi-submerged tidal gallery space that exhibits a series of sculptural artworks on the skyline, inter-tidal waterline and seabed. As world’s first semi submerged tidal Art Gallery it is cube shaped, six metres tall, with its front façade submerged up to median tide of three metres.

The design of the walls is based on natural coral structures and is porous to allow the tides, current and marine life to pass through and the structure to “breathe” within its location.

‘Miracle on the Hudson’ Pilot, Captain Chesley Sullenberger III …. “✈️🇺🇸 The Fabric of our Nation is Under Attack 🇺🇸✈️ …. “!!

VOTE AGAINST GOP CONTROL

~WE CANNOT WAIT FOR ANYONE TO SAVE US~

Capt. Chesley Sullenberger

MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!

I was always impressed by this American human being.

I didn’t know much about him until the ‘miracle in the Hudson’ happened.

For sure, I watched the movie.

Yet, last night, as I watched  him on ‘The Last Word‘, I learned to admire, respect even more and totally agree with him.

His gravitas is impressive.

Take a look!

The pilot who orchestrated a dramatic plane landing in the Hudson River nearly 10 years ago encouraged Americans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, October 29, writing that “we cannot wait for someone to save us.”
“The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame – a timeless beacon of right and wrong – seems dead,” Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “Miracle on the Hudson” landing in 2009 spared the lives of all 155 passengers aboard, writes.

“This is not the America I know and love.

We’re better than this.”

The op-ed comes toward the close of a wrenching political season marked by divisive language, conspiracy theories and race-baiting attacks, from Drumpf to local leaders.

Sul3

“We cannot wait for someone to save us.

We must do it ourselves.

This Election Day is a crucial opportunity to again demonstrate the best in each of us by doing our duty and voting for leaders who are committed to the values that will unite and protect us,” Sullenberger writes nearly a week before next week’s elections.

Sul4

Following the 2009 landing, Sullenberger says that he realized his fame had given him “a greater voice.”

“I knew I could not walk away but had an obligation to use this bully pulpit for good and as an advocate for the safety of the traveling public,” he writes.

“I feel that I now have yet another mission, as a defender of our democracy.”

Streisand revealed that she’d failed her written driver’s test three times while attempting to get her license renewed

“I was so nervous, a little bit like I am now because I have you in the car,” she told Corden. She also said that she hasn’t been driving a lot lately because her mind “is twirling” and she recently found herself driving the wrong way on the highway. “This is not what I need to hear right now,” her fellow passenger jokes.

“I thought, ‘That’s it, I’m not driving anymore,'” she said, adding, “But you’re lucky.”

“If this is how I go out, I’ll take it,” Corden jokes. “Corden died at the hands of Barbra Streisand. ‘Is she OK?’ She’s fine, thank god.”

When asked about the current political climate and how she’s coping, Streisand explained that that’s why she created the album, which is fittingly titled Walls.

Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year.

Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice.

It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, along with Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasadh.

Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.

‘Fall On Me’ …. “💕🎼 Andrea Bocelli, Matteo Bocelli …. A son and A Father 🎼💕 …. “!!

ANDREA AND MATTEO

~FALL ON ME~

Always had a soft spot for Andrea. There’s an addition now to his son Matteo.

What a beautiful coupling of voices.

Saw them perform last night in a late night show. When looking for the video and this is what I found.

Watch and listen to the new music video featuring Andrea Bocelli and his 20-year-old son Matteo Bocelli singing the beautifully poignant “Fall on Me” from Disney’s “Nutcracker and the Four Realms”.

Enjoy!!

Andrea and Matteo Bocelli create a stunning and deeply emotionally evocative pairing in their duet “Fall On Me”

Andrea Bocelli has been called “the fourth tenor”; the blind, Tuscan-born vocalist has emerged as one of the most popular voices in the arena of light classical and crossover vocals and has made inroads into the world of opera as well.

His participation in Pavarotti’s 1992 hit Miserere album and Zucchero Fornaciari’s 1993 world tour brought him international attention. Bocelli has been most successful as a pop ballad singer, having recorded duets with Celine Dion, Sarah Brightman, and Eros Ramazzotti.

Al Jarreau, who sang with Bocelli during “The Night of Proms” in November 1995, praised Bocelli with these words:

“I have had the honor to sing with the most beautiful voice in the world.”
