HUMANITARIAN CRISIS IN PUERTO RICO

CBS 60 MINUTES OVERTIME

This past Sunday, November 5, CBS Television had a special segment detailing information about many Puerto Ricans, American citizens, having endured the longest blackout in American history following a direct hit from Hurricane María. I’ve been looking for this special on YouTube to share it with you.

The situation in Puerto Rico is still dire. 

It seems that the segment presented in the regular show isn’t available yet. I will keep looking and share it when I find it.

During my search, I found this 60 Minutes Overtime presented on November 5 by Brit McCandless Farmer.

Take a look, please!

Forty-eight days today, after Hurricane María hit the island, ‘60 Minutes‘ found its citizens trying to make do without water or power – and frequently losing hope

Every day and night in San Juan, there are blackouts. But having electricity at all is a privilege, since most of the island is still without power.

“At night, it really quiets down because it’s dark,” says 60 Minutes associate producer Jack Weingart.

“The street lights are out, and most homes and businesses are also dark. So at night, you just hear this constant humming of the generators.”

Weingart, along with producers Graham Messick and Michael Karzis and associate producer Vanessa Fica, recently traveled to Puerto Rico with correspondent Steve Kroft to report this week for 60 Minutes.

As they traveled throughout the island, the dire status on the ground surprised them most.

“It’s really still in an emergency mode,” Karzis says.

“They haven’t graduated into a relief mode or recovery.”

But what does this exodus mean to an already crippled island?  

“It means a territory, which is already fiscally circling the drain, having the tax base erode even further,” Karzis says.

“It does not help that you’re losing otherwise qualified professionals or a labor force that is dwindling. And what you’re left with are folks that are older, and are collecting pensions at this point or young kids.”

Almost seven weeks after the storm, producer Graham Messick says, it feels like some Puerto Ricans have given up.

“They’d lost hope,” he says. “And it’s like a state of suspended animation. People were just waiting for the power to come on. There’s just nothing to do. It’s boring. It’s hot. It’s uncomfortable.”

“And there are no answers. “

The video was produced by Will Croxton. It was edited by Will Croxton and Sarah Shafer Prediger.

We laugh, we dance, we cry, we suffer, we argue but we will overcome our sadness by sticking together in faith and as we walk together, we will make our dreams come true …. Puerto Rico is no longer a hidden island, Hurricane María has made the islanders much stronger mentally, emotionally and physically … and the whole world already knows where Puerto Rico sits in the world map … It will take time, but we will make it happen!!

PRETTY, PRETTY PLEASE 

P!nk Perfection Past

Let’s go back in time. Another huge hit.

The message is so clear and so appropriate to things that are happening in our midst sometimes without our knowledge. Let’s heed her message.

We are perfect just as we are! And the swear word fits perfectly!!

Fuckin’ Perfect” (written as F**kin’ Perfect on the album cover and in the iTunes Store) is a song by American recording artist P!nk, taken from her first greatest hits album Greatest Hits … So Far!! (2010).

It was released on December 14, 2010 by LaFace Records, JIVE Records, and RCA Records as the album’s second single. Written by P!nk with Max Martin and Shellback, the track is a pop number which encourages people to accept each other for their true identities.

Pink has stated that the main inspiration behind the track is her husband, Carey Hart. Its music video, directed by longtime collaborator Dave Meyers, delivers a message against depression, self-harm and suicide. In November 2011, the song garnered a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance.

“Fuckin’ Perfect” peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Pink’s eleventh top-ten hit single in the United States.

Yeah! Oh!
Oh, pretty, pretty, pretty

Pretty, pretty, please, don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than fucking perfect
Pretty, pretty, please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing. You’re fucking perfect to me
You’re perfect, you’re perfect
Pretty, pretty, please, if you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing. You’re fucking perfect to me.

‘Story of Sherwin’ …. ” ❤️ ‘In a Heartbeat’ tells a heartwarming story ❤️ …. Love is Love is Love …. “!!

HEARTWARMING STORY 

The heart wants what it wants.

I agree 100%.

Love is love is love is love …

In a Heartbeat tells the heartwarming story of Sherwin, a closeted middle school student, whose heart literally pops out of his chest to chase the boy of his dreams.

The long-awaited short film has been receiving loads of attention even before its release earlier July 31, 2017.

Creators Beth David and Esteban Bravo launched a Kickstarter last year for $3,000 to produce the film and were shocked when they went $11,000 over their goal. And it's easy to see why! Beautifully animated and scored, In a Heartbeat tugs at all the right heartstrings.

It was incredibly important for Beth and Esteban to tell a gay love story.

"Being gay is a subject that hasn't been wildly explored in computer animation," they explained in their Kickstarter video.

"We want to put out a message of love and self-acceptance to all the kids and young people who struggle to identify with LGBT+, just like Sherwin does."

The heart wants what it wants.

Watch the adorable short in the video below!

I’m not British but I’ve been fascinated with the Royal Family since Princess Diana appeared on the scene.

After all the events during her marriage, eventual divorce and fatal death, I’ve followed their ‘happenings’.

This isn’t changing any time soon since Catherine and William married and started their family.

Best wishes, Little One!

An official portrait of Prince George has been released to mark his fourth birthday

Prince George’s official title and style is His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.

While his name was announced two days after his birth, he was, from birth, a British prince entitled to the style of Royal Highness under letters patent issued by his great-great-great grandfather, King George V in 1917, which gave the title and style to the eldest son of the Prince of Wales’s eldest son.
