JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

At the end of the day …. “CHAPPiE – Who am I in this body?”

CHAPPiE – Who am I in this body?

Chappie (stylized as CHAPPiE) is a 2015 American science fiction film directed by Neill Blomkamp.

BLine

~~PLOT~~

In an effort to combat a record high crime rate in the city of Johannesburg, the South African government purchases a squadron of state-of-the-art, armor-plated A.I. attack robots from American weapons manufacturer Tetravaal, developed by British engineer Deon Wilson. A competing project is the remotely controlled MOOSE, developed by Australian soldier-turned-engineer Vincent Moore.

The robots are an instant success, wiping out some of the city’s most powerful drug and organized crime gangs in a matter of months, and before long, Tetravaal move their main headquarters to Johannesburg. Deon receives plenty of recognition for the company’s success, but Vincent grows jealous when the police are unwilling to give his heavy weapons platform equal attention.

At home, Deon creates a prototype artificial intelligence that mimics a human mind to the point of feeling emotions and having opinions, but Tetravaal CEO Michelle Bradley refuses to let him test the A.I. on a police robot.

BLineChap7BLine

Undeterred, Deon steals a recently damaged robot before it is destroyed and puts it in his van, along with the “guard key” needed to update the robot’s software.

On his way home, he is kidnapped by a group of gangsters, Ninja, Yolandi, and Amerika, who threaten to kill him unless he reprograms a police robot to fight for them.

Deon installs the new software into the damaged robot, which responds with childlike terror upon powering up. Deon and Yolandi calm the robot, teaching it words and naming it “Chappie“.

~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!”’

Marriage Equality …. Slovenia!!


Slovenia

~~March 4, 2015~~ 

Slovenia became the first Central European country to pass marriage equality

On March 3, HRC commended the government of Slovenia for passing legislation that will make it the 21st nation to grant full marriage rights to all of its citizens.

“We commend the elected representatives of Slovenia for passing such historic legislation ensuring the nation’s LGBT citizens receive the rights they deserve, and we congratulate the LGBT activists and advocates who helped make this momentous day possible,”

said Ty Cobb, Director of HRC Global.

Slovenia’s national parliament approved the bill by a vote of 51 to 28. The bill will be sent to President Borut Pahor to sign into law.

Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark,France, Iceland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay, as well as England and Wales in the United Kingdom, have marriage equality laws that have gone into effect. In addition, Finland is set to extend full marriage rights to their LGBT citizens in the coming year.

The situation for LGBT people around the world varies widely, as some countries embrace equality, while in others, LGBT people continue to suffer from discrimination, persecution and violence.

Same-sex conduct is criminalized in 76 countries
In 10 countries same-sex conduct is punishable by death
So-called anti-LGBT “propaganda” laws inhibit LGBT advocacy in three countries
Same-sex marriage licenses are issued nationwide in 21 countries
In 2014 there were over 200 documented reports of transgender people murdered in 28 countries.

There continue to be countless undocumented cases of violence against transgender people throughout the world.

Google Doodle for today …. Lunar Year 2015!!

Google Doodle celebrates Lunar New Year 2015

GOOGLE has marked Lunar New Year with a Doodle on its homepage.

The animation shows a ram head-butting a tree until a bee flies out – causing firecrackers to go off and a series of fireworks to spell out “Google“.

This refers to the Chinese celebration of Lunar New Year, which marks today as the beginning of the Year of the Ram.

Chinese New Year is not only celebrated in China. 

It is also observed in countries with significant Chinese populations, such as Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines.

There is some confusion over whether 2015 is in fact the Year of the Ram, or whether it is actually dedicated to the sheep or the goat.

This is because in Mandaring ‘yang’, meaning ‘horned animal’, covers all three – so nobody is sure which one it really is.

In Chinese culture the color red is considered lucky.

So the Lunar New Year is celebrated by decorating windows and doors with red colored Chinese paper cuttings, as well as couplets with themes of ‘good fortune’, ‘happiness’, ‘wealth’ or ‘longevity’.
