A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

RECOGNIZE BEAUTY INSTEAD OF ATTACKING DIFFERENCES

Ellen Philpotts-Page (born February 21, 1987), known professionally as Ellen Page, is a Canadian actress. She started her career in Canada with roles in the television shows.

She describes herself as a pro-choice feminist. She attended Buddhist school in her youth and practiced meditation and yoga. She practices a vegan lifestyle, and PETA named her and Jared Leto the Sexiest Vegetarians of 2014. She is an atheist.

On February 14, 2014, Page came out as gay in a speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s “Time to Thrive” conference.

Such a beautiful lady.

It seems that inside there’s real beauty too.

This quote, and her actions in this world, give me hope.

TIM SHIEFF … FREE RUNNER

When he’s not leaping across tall buildings, doing one-handed handstands or performing other daredevil antics, free runner Tim Shieff can often be found whipping up delicious vegan meals and speaking out for animals on his YouTube and social media channels.

Now, he’s combined his two passions to make a stunning new pro-vegan free-running video for PETA!

Tim isn’t alone in finding that plant-based foods help him perform at the highest level. Some of the world’s fittest, strongest athletes have performed extraordinary feats on a vegan diet

Some of the typical benefits experienced by athletes after going vegan include:

Enhanced performance
Lean body mass
Improved endurance and stamina
Quicker recovery time
Resistance to illness

Of course, knowing that their diet isn’t harming any animals is an enormous, immeasurable benefit for all vegans, whether they’re athletes or not!

Down on the farm …. “What we don’t see”!!


DF2

~~May 24, 2015~~ 

FACTORY FARMS

On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems.

These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural and important to them. Most won’t even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter. The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories.

The factory farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs — always at the animals’ expense. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die.

~~Down on the Farm~~

PETA

~~Published on May 22, 2015~~

Wait until you see what today’s farms ACTUALLY look like.

Modern farms are factories intent on maximizing their output without any regard for the welfare of the cows, chickens, pigs, and other animals used for food.

Animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and stuffed into wire cages, metal crates, and other torturous devices.

Most of them won’t even breathe fresh air until the day they’re loaded onto trucks headed for slaughterhouses.

When they’ve grown large enough to slaughter or their bodies are worn out from producing milk or eggs, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported for miles through all weather extremes, typically without food or water.

At the slaughterhouse, those who survived the transport will have their throats slit, often while they’re still conscious.

Many remain conscious when they’re plunged into the scalding-hot water of the defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.

Does this sound terrible?

Here’s how you can help stop it:

Here’s the reason for the outcry …. Ted Cruz!!


~~April 25, 2014~~

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is used to getting under people’s skin.

But what he probably thought was a harmless joke (or a deliberate poke at the left) enraged animal rights advocates Wednesday night, April 23, when he tweeted, and posted on Facebook, a photo of him and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) kneeling beside a tiger skin rug.

Did a little shopping for the office with @SenMikeLee in Houston today.”

LeafBor

“If the rug is real, Ted Cruz’s use of it reduces a majestic once-living being to a doormat,” PETA said in an “immediate release.” “Gunning down wildlife in order to make umbrella stands, rugs, and ornaments is frowned upon in the 21st century, as most people have come to learn from and be awe-inspired by the lives, intelligence, and social make-up of other living beings.”

And Bernie Unti, senior policy adviser at the Humane Society of the United States, said, “We fear it’s real, but real or fake, it sends a bad message to the public at a time when we are trying to save the world’s tigers from extinction.

So we can go ahead and assume Cruz lost the animal rights vote?

LeafBor

Why the outcry about Senator Ted Cruz’s photo posing with a tiger skin?

Because fewer than 3,200 endangered tigers exist in the wild and they’re being killed FOR their skins. Like and share this image to educate others about the pervasive threat of poaching for the illegal wildlife trade that is facing the tiger.

Visit www.panthera.org to learn how Panthera’s Tigers Forever program is working to stop poaching ensure that tigers remain in the wild, forever.

I’m not interested in political crap. I’m not interested in the different parties and the fools that are in them. Needless to say, I’m so fed up with ALL of them. Doesn’t matter which
“side of the isle” they are taking about. It has nothing to do with being liberal or conservative.

I think that the older ideologies of being examples to the populace have gone out the window. 

This is a matter of a total lack of knowledge and sensitivity to what is happening in the animal kingdom around the world. They show the smug look of a “macho man” who has just returned from a safari and has been successful in hunting an animal who was at a disadvantage all along.

And he takes a picture and proudly shares it on social media. 

The tiger skin that he’s proudly showing was once a living, sentient being!! 

I don’t care where he got this new “adornment” for his office. IMHO, this is a thoughtless action, that confirms that his head is empty. Think twice … oh, wait .. he doesn’t have that capacity! As a matter of fact, neither one of them do. If they did they would have kept it to themselves or be horrified that this is happening in the world and they are part of it.

I am interested in the fact stated above. This is the reason for the outcry:

“Fewer than 3,200 endangered tigers exist in the wild and they’re being killed FOR their skins”.

~~Mission~~

Panthera’s mission is to ensure the future of wild cats through scientific leadership and global conservation action.

Panthera has brought together the world’s leading wild cat experts to direct and implement effective conservation strategies for the world’s largest and most endangered cats: tigers, lions, jaguars and snow leopards. Our approach to wild cat conservation is rooted in science and based upon decades of first hand field experience.

We seek a future in which the world’s 37 wild cat species have the necessary and ongoing protection from human and environmental threats to persist and thrive in the wild. Our vision sees endangered wild cat populations rebounded, critical habitats and core populations connected by genetic and biological corridors, and a global commitment to protect these iconic species through near and distant futures.

Learn more about specific Panthera programs designed to protect the world’s endangered wild cats.

Why Protect Wild Cats?

Some of the greatest species to ever roam the planet are threatened with extinction.

Panthera focuses on saving wild cat species across the globe because this is a winning strategy for conserving large, functioning ecosystems on which they depend, and  contain thousands of species of plants and animals. Cats act as landscape guardians and their presence indicates healthy, intact ecosystems that are crucial for all life, including people.  

While Panthera’s efforts are focused on saving wild cats, the impacts go far beyond.
