WINNERS OF DWTS SEASON 22 

It’s finally over.

The suspense has ended!

All along I’d been rooting for Nyle and Peta.

I was concerned that my wishes could jix their chances.

I watched the whole season.

It was a pleasure.

I saw this incredible young man grow and blossom into the great performer that he proved himself to be.

The competition was fierce, meaning that all the finalist had incredible talent too.

I couldn’t start this day without “reporting” on the final results.

Maybe most already know.

If you didn’t here it is.

I’m ready for the next Season in September.

Dancing With the Stars Finale

DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd were awarded the Mirrorball trophy.

(Second place went to Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas, with Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy nabbing third.)

DiMarco — who, coincidentally, also won the 22nd cycle of America’s Next Top Model — was a favorite from the beginning, as he overcame his deafness (including an inability to feel musical vibrations) to produce some of the season’s most memorable routines.

Of course, before Nyle and Peta could overtake Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough as the reigning Dancing champs, the ABC series hosted a two-hour celebration of this season’s standout performances and memorable contestants.

The three finalists also performed their 24-hour fusion dances — a mash-up of two dance styles — which earned them one last score from the judges, denoted below:

Ginger Zee and pro Val Chmerkovskiy — Foxtrot/Argentine Tango — 27/30

Nyle DiMarco and pro Peta Murgatroyd — Tango/Cha-Cha — 30/30

Paige VanZant and pro Mark Ballas — Jive/Salsa — 30/30

And just like that, Season 22 came to a close, with Nyle and Peta swept up in a massive celebration alongside their castmates.

“I owe it all to him,” Murgatroyd said of her partner. “He’s just incredible.”

ABOUT NYLE

Nyle DiMarco (born May 8, 1989 in Queens, New York) is an American actor and model. In 2015 he was the first and only deaf contestant to appear on the final season of America’s Next Top Model.
DiMarco was born in Queens, New York. He comes from a deaf family with his parents, both of his brothers and his grandparents all born deaf. His parents divorced when he was young and his mom singlehandedly raised him and his two brothers. He grew up in Frederick, Maryland and graduated from Gallaudet University with a degree in Mathematics. DiMarco lives in New York City. He considers American Sign Language (ASL) to be his native language and is also proficient in lip reading and nonverbal communication.
DiMarco had been doing freelance modeling for about a year before he was contacted by America’s Next Top Model producers. They scouted the 25-year-old via his Instagram without realizing he was deaf. He is the second male winner of the CW’s America’s Next Top Model. DiMarco is now currently signed with Wilhelmina Models in New York City.

DiMarco doesn’t consider himself to be disabled by deafness and sees his media profile as an opportunity to bring awareness to Deaf culture. He views deafness as an advantage in modeling because he is accustomed to conveying messages without speaking.He also holds the belief that deaf roles should be played by deaf actors.

 DiMarco is an honorary spokesperson for the Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids (LEAD-K) campaign.

“Slap Her”: Children’s Reactions

A media group in Italy recruited a few young boys for a video project, but the real purpose of the video was not explained to them beforehand.

Watch as they take direction up to a point. When the director asks them to slap a girl, all bets are off.

The result is a thought-provoking PSA about domestic violence.

GOOD TIME TO START

Domestic violence (also domestic abuse, spousal abuse, intimate partner violence, battering or family violence) is a pattern of behavior which involves violence or other abuse by one person in a domestic context against another, such as in marriage or cohabitation. Intimate partner violence is violence by a spouse or partner in an intimate relationship against the other spouse or partner.

Domestic violence can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships. Domestic violence can take a number of forms including physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, coercive forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse that results in disfigurement or death.

Domestic violence often occurs because the abuser believes that abuse is justified and acceptable, and may produce inter-generational cycles of abuse that condone violence. Victims of domestic violence may be trapped in domestic violent situations through isolation, power and control, insufficient financial resources, fear, shame or to protect children. As a result of abuse, victims may experience physical disabilities, chronic health problems, mental illness, limited finances, and poor ability to create healthy relationships. Victims may experience post-traumatic stress disorder.

Children who live in a household with violence show dysregulated aggression from an early age that may later contribute to continuing the legacy of abuse when they reach adulthood.

Noah Galloway dedicates ‘DWTS’ dance to difficult recovery

During “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday, April 6, war veteran Noah Galloway dedicated an emotional modern dance to a time he’ll never forget.

It was 2005 — the year a violent roadside bomb blast in Iraq claimed his left arm and left leg and his long road to recovery began.

“I got to where I’d just sit at home by myself and drink and try to cope with it by myself. Biggest mistake I ever made,” Galloway said.

Galloway admitted he battled with extreme depression while recovering from his injuries.

He was very athletic and physical before the accident, and he feared he had lost everything when he lost his arm and leg. But one day, Galloway looked in the mirror and decided to focus on what he did have left instead of what he had lost.

And his emotional performance reflected his difficult journey of acceptance from the man he was to the man he is today.

Galloway and partner Sharna Burgess‘ dance had the audience on their feet and cheering. It even brought judges Julianne Hough and Carrie Ann Inaba to tears during their rave reviews of the routine.

DEFINITIONS

A carbonated drink is a beverage that has dissolved carbon dioxide, most often to improve the taste and/or texture.

Sugar is the generalized name for sweet, short-chain, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food. They are carbohydrates, composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. There are various types of sugar derived from different sources. Refined sugars have been processed even more from their natural form.

BrownBord

Fake (artificial) foods are made from various types of plastics, resins, and similar materials to replicate the appearance of real foods. There are various names for fake food including pretend food, wax food, artificial food, faux food, replica food, imitation food, food replicas, false foods, food fakes, and simulated food.

Food processing is the transformation of raw ingredients, by physical or chemical means into food, or of food into other forms. Food processing combines raw food ingredients to produce marketable food products that can be easily prepared and served by the consumer. Food processing typically involves activities such as mincing and macerating, liquefaction, emulsification, cooking (such as boiling, broiling, frying, or grilling), pickling and preservation, canning or jarring (primary-processing such as dicing or slicing, freezing or drying when leading to secondary products are also included).

Thoughts for today …. #64!!


~~December 1, 2014~~ 

Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural, physical, or material world or universe. “Nature” refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the cosmic.

The word nature is derived from the Latin word natura, or “essential qualities, innate disposition”, and in ancient times, literally meant “birth”. Natura was a Latin translation of the Greek word physis, which originally related to the intrinsic characteristics that plants, animals, and other features of the world develop of their own accord.

The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe, is one of several expansions of the original notion; it began with certain core applications of the word φύσις by pre-Socratic philosophers, and has steadily gained currency ever since. This usage continued during the advent of modern scientific method in the last several centuries.

National Domestic Violence Awareness Month …. October!!


~~October 2, 2014~~ 

This is very serious. It may affect anyone, in any kind of relationship. Family member, elderly relatives, LGBT community, marriage, domestic partnership. It’s there.

Physical, verbal, emotional, economic, sexual …. 

The stigma needs to be removed.

We need to speak up. 

DV21

Domestic violence (closely related to domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering, family violence and intimate partner violence) is a pattern of behavior which involves violence or other abuse by one person against another in a domestic context, such as in marriage or cohabitation. Intimate partner violence is domestic violence against a spouse or other intimate partner.

Domestic violence can take place in heterosexual or same-sex relationships. Domestic violence can take a number of forms including physical, emotional, verbal, economic and sexual abuse, which can range from subtle, coercive forms to marital rape and to violent physical abuse that results in disfigurement or death. Globally, a wife or female partner is more commonly the victim of domestic violence, though the victim can also be the male partner, or both partners may engage in abusive or violent behavior, or the victim may act in self-defense or retaliation.

DV22

Domestic violence often occurs because the perpetrator believes that abuse is justified and acceptable, and may produce inter-generational cycles of abuse that condone violence. Awareness, perception, definition and documentation of domestic violence differs widely from country to country. There may be a cycle of abuse during which tensions rise and an act of violence is committed, followed by a period of reconciliation and calm.

Victims of domestic violence may be trapped in domestic violent situations through isolation, power and control, insufficient financial resources, fear, shame or to protect children. As a result of abuse, victims may experience physical disabilities, chronic health problems, mental illness, limited finances, and poor ability to create healthy relationships. Victims may experience post-traumatic stress disorder. Children who live in a household with violence may continue the legacy of abuse when they reach adulthood. Domestic violence often happens in the context of forced and child marriage.

Alcohol consumption and mental illness can be co-morbid with abuse, and present additional challenges in eliminating domestic violence. Management of domestic violence may take place through medical services, law enforcement, counseling, and other forms of prevention and intervention.
