Hurricane María struck Puerto Rico with unprecedented force

Over six months later, the majority of the island remains without clean water or electricity and over 200,000 have relocated to the United States.

Video discusses Hurricane María and its aftermath.

IT’S RESTORING, NOT UPDATING

My heart and soul ache for my country.

There’s so much need and so little help from the ‘owner’ of the colony.

The governance of the mighty, imperialistic U.S. of A. doesn’t care.

That says a lot to me!

I know where my loyalty lies.

~BREAKING: Island of Puerto Rico Experiencing Blackout~

NowThis Facebook Video

RedLineBAguirre

Puerto Rico has experienced an islandwide blackout seven months after Hurricane María hit the island and devastated much of its infrastructure.

Every single power customer on the U.S. territory is without power, NPR’s Adrian Florido reports from San Juan.

More than 3 million people are affected. It’s the first total blackout since Hurricane María.

PREPA, Puerto Rico’s electrical utility, says a fault was detected on a transmission line between two power plants and that service will be restored gradually. It could take 24 to 36 hours for power to be restored for some customers, the utility says.

Hospitals, the island’s main airport, water pumping systems and banking centers will receive priority as PREPA works to restore service.

This is the first complete blackout since the hurricane, but over that seven-month span, the island had never restored full service. Before this blackout began, The Associated Press says, 40,000 people in Puerto Rico still had not regained “normal electricity service.”

In February, an explosion at a power substation plunged San Juan back into darkness. Earlier this month, a tree fell on a transmission line and cut power to more than half the island’s population, as Adrian has reported:

“The accident occurred in the region of Cayey, where crews were working to restore power to people still waiting nearly seven months after Hurricane María. Increasingly, that work requires clearing away heavily forested mountainsides to gain access to the large utility poles that carry transmission lines from one mountain peak to the next. “It was during that kind of work that a tree falling toward the ground made contact with the power line instead.

~Why is it so hard for power to be restored in Puerto Rico?~

As Tim Webber reported for NPR last fall, the island is struggling with an “outdated, aboveground power grid” that has lagged behind infrastructure improvements in the rest of America.

The job of restoring power on Puerto Rico after Hurricane María is mammoth in size

And a contract held by a subsidiary of Oklahoma City-based Mammoth Energy Services involved in doing the work is getting big, too.

HONORING PUERTO RICO

PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPH MADE WITH ‘LIVE COLLAGE’

“That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.”

(a friend told me)

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

It’s been a week today since I visited my tattoo artist for add ons, updates, coloring and completion.

Colors, shading, The ‘cemí’, the hibiscus flowers, the ‘Taíno coquí’ and the ‘Taíno sun‘ were completed.

The process is almost totally done.

Only minor details for the last sitting.

My tattoo artist, Barefoot Stacy, is amazing!

Here it is!

RedLineBSTatt

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island on September 20, 2018, a bit beyond six months ago today.

I wanted to share another ‘almost complete’ result with you today.

 More will follow as it’s totally done.

Samantha Bee …. “🇵🇷 The Great American Puerto Rico …. FRONTAL ENTERO 🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~March 31, 2018~~

SAMANTHA BEE

THE GREAT AMERICAN PUERTO RICO

Samantha Bee has become one of my favorite late night comedians.

The fact that she went to Puerto Rico, my country, in an attempt to put the spotlight back on the current status of Puerto Rico, makes he more dear to my heart.

The 45 minutes special is included below.

It’s very factual, interesting, educational and funny.

It speaks for itself.

Be prepared for an entertaining and true adventure!

Thanks so very much, Sam, for doing this!

Full Frontal aired a one-hour special from Puerto Rico in which Samantha Bee and her correspondents visit the island that was top-of-show news when Hurricane María hit months ago, leaving 1,000+ dead, about 10K homeless, and 3.4M without power.

The Great American Puerto Rico was taped in February 2018; 103K still were without power, Bee reported, calling it “shameful” given that Puerto Ricans are American citizens.

“If this happened in Connecticut, it would be front page news every day,” she said, adding,

“How did we f*ck this up so badly?!”

Bee says in the special she grabbed her correspondents and rushed to Puerto Rico “to find out what the hell was going on,” telling her crew “Let’s make America give a damn about Puerto Rico.”

During the special Bee announces she had moved her TBS late-night show’s T-shirt production to Puerto Rico, and challenged others to do same, most especially former The Daily Show colleague/current CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

PRSam

Bee had first announced her Puerto Rico special back in January, during another Full Frontal special in which she sent her staff to race around, apologizing on behalf of the United States for all the things Drumpf had done at that point.

FOUND TONIGHT

HamilDrop: Ben Platt & Lin Manuel Miranda Mashup “Found Tonight”

FOR THE KIDS

Found Tonight with Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt and all of Troupe 10036

I’m an ardent fan.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an amazing talent.

His Puerto Rican roots make it even more significant for me.

He has shown immense interest in social causes.

Benjamin Schiff Platt (born September 24, 1993) is an American actor and singer known for originating the role of the title character in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, a performance for which he has won numerous awards.

Here you have two amazing talents joined for a common cause for the future of the children of this nation.

The heart-stopping anthem released on Monday,  March 19, by Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt to celebrate the “March For Our Lives” gun violence prevention actions this weekend needs no introduction, only some background.

The three-minute song, “Found Tonight,” mashes up Miranda’s “Story Of Tonight” from his smash musical “Hamilton” and the song “You Will Be Found,” from Platt’s star turn in “Dear Evan Hansen,” by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

This means the song draws from one story about teenage revolutionaries, and another about teens triumphing over despair.

The song begins with a rewritten line from “Hamilton” – instead of “we may not live to sing our glory,”

Platt sings, “we may not yet have reached our glory.”

All the proceeds from downloads of the song go to “March For Our Lives,” a gun violence prevention demonstration that will take place on March 24 in Washington DC.

Platt’s extraordinary gift for vulnerability and vocal sublimity are on display here, as is Miranda’s once-in-a-generation passion.

Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 The Privatization Of An Island …. ‘Shock Doctrine’ at Work 🇵🇷 …. “!!

PRFlag

UNDER PRESSURE FROM WASHINGTON, DC

PUERTO RICO HAS STARTED A PRIVATIZATION PROCESS

Privatization and austerity are hitting a country rooted in systemic inequality

SHOCK DOCTRINE

This process was applied to Puerto Rico, my country, a long time ago.

It was progressing at a mostly unnoticed pace by those Puerto Ricans who weren’t ‘woke’ yet. There was a ‘hint’ of this process when the PROMESA Bill was signed into law.

The Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act (PROMESA) is a US federal law that established an oversight board, a process for restructuring debt, and expedited procedures for approving critical infrastructure projects in order to combat the Puerto Rican government-debt crisis. 

~Wikipedia~

Hurricane María accelerated the process.

How to stop it?

I don’t know. I don’t think anyone knows!

~The Shock Doctrine~
The strategy by the world’s economic elites of imposing an extremely neoliberal economic regime on communities they control, using some form of shock: a natural disaster, a coup d’etat, a war, a financial crisis, etc.

Once the community has been crippled by this first shock, the economic “reforms” are imposed suddenly, creating a secondary blow.

Then, as the community begins to recover and fight back, the authorities use torture and police brutality to literally shock the community a third time.

In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades.

The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world – through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.

(Very interesting and gripping book. I highly recommend it.)
