HER LASTING IMPACT

AMAZING!

I find this to be an lasting testament to Dr. Ford’s ordeal.

It catches the lasting effects of what she experienced as a teen.

For the Oct. 15, 2018, TIME cover on the impact of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony and the significance of her voice, we used Ford’s words to create her portrait.

As Haley Sweetland Edwards writes in the accompanying story, “the moment Dr. Christine Blasey Ford walked into the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, raised her right hand and swore to tell the truth, it was clear to millions of Americans that something momentous was about to unfold.”

Using words and phrases from Ford’s testimony, San Francisco-based artist John Mavroudis recreated her likeness by drawing each letter by hand.

“This particular process is like putting a jigsaw puzzle together, but with an infinite number of possibilities,” says Mavroudis.

“I started with an image of Ford and then drew the words in where they might be appropriate.”

“The memory quotes would be attached to her forehead area, and the quotes about wanting to help I placed on her hand. The hand could be seen as welcoming, but also deflecting,” Mavroudis said.

“It’s a fascinating process to watch the face take shape, while hoping that you’ve captured the essence.”

Time magazine’s cover illustrates Trump’s White House transforming into a Kremlin-like building

Almost a prediction in May of the events transpiring now in the current month of July 2018 …. after the Helsinki ‘Treason Summit‘ between Drumpf and Putrid.

Time magazine Thursday published a stunning illustration on its cover for the May 29th issue, depicting the White House mutating into a Kremlin-like building, featuring the distinctive onion domes and red brick of Russia’s Saint Basil’s Cathedral.

Puerto Rico is Back in the News …. 🇵🇷😥 Number of Deaths after Hurricane María Totally Miscalculated 😥🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~May 30, 3018~~ 

DEATH TOLL

I knew this the moment Hurricane María’s path was confirmed.

I know my country, it’s geography, its people.

There was no way the ’64’ could be the official count.

I have no proper words to describe how this feels.

My heart and soul ache for my country!

REMEMBER THIS?

By Aaron Blake … May 29

In October 2018, in the course of claiming credit for a successful response, Drumpf decided to favorably compare the official death toll in Puerto Rico, which was then 16, to the death toll after Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, which was 1,833.

DRUMPF: We’ve saved a lot of lives. If you look at the – every death is a horror. But if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous – hundred and hundred and hundreds of people that died. And you look at what happened here with really a storm that was totally overpowering. Nobody’s ever seen anything like this. And what is your death count at this point, 17?

PUERTO RICO GOV. RICARDO ROSSELLÓ: Sixteen, certified.

DRUMPF: Sixteen people, certified – 16 people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people working together.
“Sixteen versus literally thousands of people.”

The count now, according to Harvard, is 4,645 vs. 1,833.

More than twice as many people died because of Maria than Katrina, per the Harvard study.

Puerto Rico governor welcomes “real number” of Hurricane María deaths after shocking report

A new Harvard University study says the death toll from Hurricane María last year is dramatically larger than reported. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, estimates more than 4,600 people died on the island.

The official government death toll is just 64.

Researchers randomly knocked on doors and asked if anyone died there. There were more questions – but that’s how it started.

It took six weeks and $50,000 from Harvard to come up with a number that is stunning, reports CBS News’ David Begnaud.

“The negligence that allowed those lives to be lost, needs to be accounted for,” San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz said.

Cruz has blasted Drumpf for being tone deaf and slow to respond. When asked to evaluate her own response she said,

“I know I didn’t get to everyone. We did the best we could, but that wasn’t’ good enough. That wasn’t good enough.”

Why this story is more than just a shocking number?

For every death that is certified by a government official to be related to Hurricane María, family members are eligible to have the federal government help pay for funeral expenses.

The numbers matter.

At least 4,645 people on the island are estimated to have died as a result of the storm and devastation that followed, far exceeding the official number of 64. Judy Woodruff talks with Sarah Varney of Kaiser Health News.

~~THE ROYAL WEDDING~~

I was away from home on May 19, 2018.

I missed watching the royal wedding in real time. I managed to watch parts of it. I saw the Queen arrive, I saw Meghan and Doria arrive. I saw the ceremony, the choir (Stand By Me), the viola player.

My personal tradition has been to get up early and watch every bit of it.

I do have it recorded.

Soon I’ll watch every minute of it!!

VALENTINE’S DAY 2018

~SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER~

Count the days.

It’s been a few days past 90 days.

I must confess that I have been in a funk since the elections of
November 8, 2016. I have experienced a gamut of emotions ranging from anger, disbelief, desperation, bafflement and so much more.

I saw no way out until the Parkland students in Florida began their movement.

I am rooting for them.

I’m rooting for the young people of this country. 

They will be the ones to effect change. It’s their time. The old dinosaurs in government will see the effect of the young on them.

I have their backs!!

… ‘AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD’ … 

RedLineBBARACK OBAMA

April 19th, 2018
America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then – even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support common sense reforms – the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.

This time, something different is happening.

This time, our children are calling us to account.

The Parkland, Florida, students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet.

Google Doodle for today …. “Celebrating the Man Behind the Rainbow Flag … Gilbert Baker …. “!!

~~June 2, 2017~~ 

THANK YOU, GILBERT

Baker passed away last year at the age of 65.

Today, he would have turned 66.

Google on Friday, June 2,  used its latest Doodle to celebrate American artist and gay rights activist Gilbert Baker, creator of the rainbow flag that has become a symbol of pride for LGBTQ individuals around the world.

Baker made his way from Kansas to San Francisco with the U.S. Army.

After leaving the military, Baker taught himself to sew and volunteered his skills to make protest banners for the city’s gay community.

In 1978, influential gay leader Harvey Milk challenged Baker to create a new symbol for activists to rally around. The most widely used icon at the time was the pink triangle, reclaimed from the symbol used during World War II to identify gay prisoners being held in Nazi concentration camps.

While it may have been a potent symbol of common suffering and struggle, Baker wanted to create something more positive and celebratory to bind the growing LGBT movement together.

The first rainbow flag Baker put together with volunteers in the attic of the Gay Community Center included eight differently colored horizontal stripes with their own meaning. After Milk’s assassination later that year, demand for the flag exploded and the limited availability of some fabric meant reducing the number of stripes to today’s six.

PORTRAIT OF CHAOS

Time’s new cover is going to royally piss off Drumpf

When Drumpf was named Time Magazine’s ‘person of the year’, he used it as an opportunity to gloat.

The irony, of course, was that being ‘person of the year’ is not necessarily a compliment, and upon further inspection, even the cover photo held clues that Drumpf’s impending presidency was doomed.

Well, there’s no way Drumpf can spin Time’s latest cover as anything except what it is:

a mirror held up to his disastrous first month as leader of the country.

This is what will hit news stands on Feb. 27.
