Amnesty International awarded Colin Kaepernick its Ambassador of Conscience Award on Saturday, April 21, 2018, for his public protest against racial and social injustice.

“The Ambassador of Conscience award celebrates the spirit of activism and exceptional courage, as embodied by Colin Kaepernick,” Salil Shetty, the human rights group’s secretary-general, said in a statement.

“He is an athlete who is now widely recognized for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination.”

The award is Amnesty International’s highest honor, according to its website.

Past winners include Nelson Mandela, Malala Yousafzai, U2, Alicia Keys and Ai Weiwei.

Kaepernick was presented with the award at a ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Kaepernick, a former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, became the subject of controversy when he kneeled during the national anthem before several 2016 NFL preseason and regular-season games in protest of police shootings of African-American men and other social injustices faced by black people in the United States.

The former San Francisco 49ers star was handed the Ambassador of Conscience Award at a ceremony on Saturday in the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, by one time teammate Eric Reid.

Amnesty says the award recognizes “an inspiring contribution to helping human rights”.

TRIP DOWN HISTORY LANE

HOW DID IT BEGIN?

It seems that a lot of effort has been placed in the celebration of our planet, Mother Earth.

In the United States, the ‘Environmental Protection Agency‘ was created to assure that norms and regulations were put in place to do this country’s part in the worldwide effort to protect this planet.

At the time of this writing, it looks like all those efforts are in the process of dismantling by the current EPA top official in association with the Executive branch of the current government.

That cannot be allowed. Grassroot efforts must be undertaken once again to assure that Mother Earth is protected.

In this instance, history MUST repeat itself.

Remember, there is no ‘Planet B’!

 “We need the tonic of wildness – to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”

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.

People magazine’s annual ‘Most Beautiful‘ issue just got a facelift

P!nk appears on the cover of the magazine’s 2018 ‘Beautiful’ issue with her daughter Willow, 6, and son Jameson, 1, for a feature more focused on parenting and self-love than just the singer’s looks.

“I tell my daughter the truth,” Pink says in the story, which hits newsstands Friday, via excerpts provided to NBC’s Today. “I let her be six, but I want her to know about fairness and kindness and that you have to fight for your rights, and that sometimes girls aren’t paid as much as boys for the same job, and girls aren’t treated the same, and that they have to work harder for everything.”

Appearing on Wednesday’s Ellen, April 17, to celebrate the magazine cover, the singer joked that she “laughed out loud” when she found out she would be on the cover.
