A DREAM ACHIEVED …. SMILES NOW

Syrian tripped by Hungarian camerawoman gets job offer at Spanish soccer coaching school

The video footage sparked international outrage:

A desperate Syrian father, clutching his small son, runs with hundreds fleeing from authorities at an Hungarian camp. Then, a Hungarian camerawoman sticks her leg out and trips him. He tumbles. He screams.

Although he was just one of thousands fleeing war-torn Syria, the incident set off a wave of media coverage, and soon he wasn’t a nameless refugee.

He is Osama Abdul Mohsen, father to 7-year-old Zaid, and he once coached division one soccer in Syria.

Now, Spain’s national soccer coach training center, Cenafe, has arranged for him to come to the country, where a job offer and a place to live near Getafe await him, the Associated Press reported.

“Hopefully, this will serve as an example to the rest of Europe,” school director Miguel Galán said, according to AP. “We need to help these people.”

Mohsen arrived in Madrid on Thursday after traveling by train from Germany with two of his sons, an Arabic-speaking Cenafe student and a reporter from the Spanish newspaper El Mundo.

“I am very, very happy when Mr. Miguel called [me] to come to Spain,” Mohsen said on the train in an video interview with El Mundo. “I see a future for my family in Spain.”

Mohsen’s wife and two other children remain in Turkey, and he said on camera that it’s “very vital” that his family reunite with him in Spain. Authorities at the soccer academy are working to have Mohsen’s family join him and to get him legalized so he can work there.

National Hispanic Heritage Month …. September 15 through October 15!!


HisMonth

~~September 16, 2015~~ 

Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month
September 15 – October 15

Each year, Americans observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on September 15 and ending on October 15. It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988, on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period.

NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

National Hispanic Heritage Month is the period from September 15 to October 15 in the United States, when people recognize the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans to the United States and celebrate the group’s heritage and culture.

Hispanic Heritage Week was approved by president Lyndon Johnson in 1968 and the length of it was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period (September 15 – October 15). It was enacted into law on August 17, 1988 on the approval of Public Law 100-402.

September 15 was chosen as the starting point for the celebration because it is the anniversary of independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. All declared independence in 1821. In addition, Mexico, Chile and Belize celebrate their independence days on September 16, September 18, and September 21, respectively.

Hispanic Heritage Month also celebrates the long and important presence of Hispanic and Latino Americans in North America, starting with the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus on the morning of October 12, 1492.

A map of late 18th-century North America shows this presence, from the small outpost of San Francisco founded in the desolate wilderness of Alta California in 1776, through the Spanish province of Texas with its vaqueros (cowboys), to the fortress of St. Augustine, Florida — the first continuous European settlement in North America, founded in 1565, forty-two years before the English landed in Jamestown, Virginia.

~Freedom to Marry’s Roadmap to Victory~

~Uploaded on Apr 7, 2011~

http://www.freedomtomarry.org/roadmapvid

Marriage is about love, commitment, and family.

Freedom to Marry’s Roadmap to Victory is the three track strategy to end marriage discrimination in the United States. Since 2004 a growing number of states and the District of Columbia have ended same sex couple exclusion from marriage. By winning more states, we’ll prove that families are helped and no one is harmed. Marriage matters to gay families and together we’ll transform momentum by asking our friends and family to stand for the Freedom to Marry.

~AND SUCCESSFUL IT WAS~

At the end of the day …. “The Voca People”!!


Voc1

~~May 2, 2015~~ 

VOCA PEOPLE

The Voca People are an Israel-based ensemble performing vocal theater combining a cappella and beat box vocals to reproduce the sounds of an entire orchestra.

They have performed in Spain, New York, Hungary, Italy, France, England, Israel and many other places. They incorporate the public into their songs and change or add bits depending on which country they are in (e.g. If they were in Spain they would perform songs in Spanish and incorporate the Spanish public into their performance.)

The creators, Lior Kalfon and Shai Fishman envisioned a group of performers dressed completely in white with red lips. The Voca People claim to come from the Planet Voca (somewhere behind the sun) where all communication is based on music and vocal expressions. They float around in space in their ship, which is powered by nothing more than music, and arrived on Earth which has a great repertoire of music.

Their motto is:

“Life is music and music is life.”

Voc8

In Italy they became famous through a clip on YouTube, which had over 15 million hits in less than one year, and a series of television appearances. Their first appearance in an Italian TV show was Ale e Franz on 28 September 2009. Later they also appeared on Domenica In and the Italian X Factor.

The Voca People sometimes mingle with crowds, singing, improvising and playing with passers-by. Their appearance and performances have been compared to Blue Man Group.

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 …. “Winter Solstice” December 21, 2014!!


~~December 21, 2014~~ 

Winter Solstice 2014

a time of balancing – completing old business and welcoming in the New

Why Google has given the shortest day of the year a doodle?

Google has marked the shortest day of the year with an animated Doodle on its homepage.
The Doodle depicts a cartoon Father Christmas helping two children to build a snowman before the children’s mother appears and produces a carrot from her shopping bag to use as the snowman’s nose.

The winter solstice occurs when the sun’s daily maximum elevation in the sky is at its lowest and the North Pole is tilted furthest away from the sun. This results in the least number of daylight hours and the longest night of the year. This astronomical phenomenon occurs in December in the Northern Hemisphere and in June in the Southern Hemisphere.

The event has been marked by many cultures throughout history with festivals, rituals, celebrations and the mating of animals, and even today people gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise and sunset. The ancient stones are carefully aligned on a sight-line that points to the winter solstice sunset, and it is thought that this event was actually more important to those who constructed the site than the summer equivalent.

~RETURNING TO THE BEYOND~

Let us return unto our truest selves

Let us open to the Beyond

Beyond our sense of separation

Beyond our egos, beyond our minds

Beyond our limitations, beyond our wounds, beyond the past

Beyond history, beyond stories and concepts

Beyond hopes and fears 

And simply open to encountering a new Divine Awareness

To guide our collective journey on planet Earth.

May the love generated on this Solstice Day 

Touch all life everywhere … all beings, all creatures, all elements

Throughout all time and space.

The fever is on …. World Cup FIFA 2014!!


Fif1

~~June 22, 2014~~

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th FIFA World Cup, a tournament for the men’s football world championship, that is currently taking place in Brazil.

It began on 12 June, with a group stage, and is scheduled to conclude on 13 July with the final. It is the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the first being in 1950. Brazil was elected unchallenged as host nation in 2007 after the international football federation, FIFA, decreed that the tournament would be staged in South America for the first time since 1978 in Argentina, and the fifth time overall.

Fif2

The national teams of 31 countries advanced through qualification competitions that began in June 2011 to participate with the host nation Brazil in the final tournament. A total of 64 matches are being played in 12 cities across Brazil in either new or redeveloped stadiums. For the first time at a World Cup finals, match officials are using goal-line technology, as well as vanishing foam for free kicks.

With the host country, all world champion teams since the first World Cup in 1930 – ArgentinaEnglandFranceGermany (who won three times as West Germany), ItalySpain and Uruguay – have qualified for this competition. Spain were the title holders, having defeated the Netherlands 1–0 in the 2010 final to win their first World Cup but they were eliminated after losses in the first two matches at the group stage against Chile and the Netherlands. All seven previous World Cup tournaments staged in the Americas (four in South America and three in North America) were won by South American teams.

I am not much into sports. I must confess I don’t know anything about this one. It’s all over the TV. You can see excited spectators everywhere: online, on the news, in the blogosphere. 

I must say, I do like the music. 

Pitbull sings with Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte and Jennifer Lopez.

I saw a post somewhere talking about one of the songs written for the FIFA World Cup 2014 and someone asked who Pitbull was.

Here they are! 

Are you feeling that futbol fever and yearning for some hot Latin fire?

Well, you’re in luck because Jennifer Lopez and Mr. Worldwide Pitbull performed their song “We Are One” at the opening ceremony for the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Marking the official start of the sexy soccer extravaganza, Brazilian songstress Claudia Leitte, who fluffed up the crowd in anticipation for J-Lo and Pit’s arrival, joined the two pop stars.

J-to-the-L-O, donned in a sexy green leotard, and Pitbull, who is wearing pants that some might call a little too fitted, gave a lively and joyous performance to say the least.
