Thank you, @winterbournefarms, for taking time from your busy operations yesterday to talk with us and give us your local perspective on cannabis. It was incredibly educational and insightful! @humboldtlegends #cannabis#farming#cafarmers#cacounties#humboldtcounty
In March, the community of Rockville, Maryland was rocked after news broke that two men in the United States illegally gang-raped a 14-year-old girl in the local high school bathroom.
No one ever talks about this – which Trump pointed out in a recent interview with Fox’s Eric Bolling about the building of the border wall – but women and children who come to the States illegally are some of the biggest targets for sexual assaults and sex trafficking. If they’re in the United States illegally they are not documented so they have no social security card, ID, etc. In the eyes of the government, they do not exist. This makes them extremely vulnerable to sex traffickers and predators because there’s no record of their existence. In effect, they’re less likely to be looked for if they go missing and less likely to be believed if they attempt to report a sex crime. Furthermore, there are a staggering number of illegal women and children who do not report rapes committed against them for fear that they’ll be deported. On April 25 Trump tweeted that he’ll build the wall and it will help stop human trafficking. “It [the wall] will get built and stop drugs, human trafficking etc.” Trump’s plan to secure the border and build the wall to stop illegal immigration will be a huge step forward in lowering America’s sex crime stats and ending sex trafficking.
The leftist media and some members of the LGBT community are also pushing to normalize pedophilia. Salon has published articles claiming pedophiles aren’t monsters. Salon writer Todd Nickerson posted a video
A juvenile California Red-sided Gartersnake (Thamnophis sirtalis infernalis) hunting Pseudacris tadpoles in-situ. Humboldt county, April 2017.
I missed photographing a feeding attempt here by about a second! This roadside puddle was chock full of tadpoles, which hopefully helped to give this little snake a good start to the long and cold spring that we had.
58/100. From "Humboldt History, Volume One: Two Peoples, One Place," by Ray Raphael and Freeman House: "The redwood canoe, built from the wind-felled trees found nearly everywhere along the coast and at lower elevations in Humboldt County, is as central to Native life as is redwood housing. (An anonymous Yurok tribal member speaks of the fine eye needed to distinguish a 'boat tree' from a 'house tree '.). Elegantly fashioned watercrafts provide transportation and access to both riverine and ocean foods; they are also the means by which social relations are maintained up and down the rivers and coastline... A canoe might take two or more men up to a year to fashion. Since the trees from which the canoes are taken are spirit beings, prayer and ceremony accompany every step in their transformation from tree to boat. The canoe will be alive when it is completed; it will have a heart-- a raised knob near the front of the boat with a hole in it suitable for stepping a mast. Stephen Powers, who passed through the area in the 1870s, described the process in some detail: 'In making the canoe they spread pitch on whatever place they wish to reduce, and when it has burned deep enough they clap on a piece of raw bark and extinguish the fire. By this means they round them out with wonderful symmetry and elegance, leaving the sides and ends very thin and as smooth as if they had been sandpapered. At the stern they burn and polish out a neat little bracket that serves as the seat for the boatman.'" Craft. Focus. Flow. Spirit-imbued wood and other materials. Reciprocity with all things, listening with one's whole being-- I am about these things for the sake of my characters. #amwriting#the100dayproject#100daysofnovelresearch#amresearching#amwritinghistoricalfiction#humboldtcounty#californiahistory#amdrawing#writers#writersofinstagram#writerscommunity#writer#nativeamericancraftmanship#nativeamericanhistory#nativeamericancanoe#rayraphael#freemanhouse
💎Ⓣⓡⓐⓝⓢⓕⓞⓡⓜⓐⓣⓘⓞⓝ Ⓣⓤⓔⓢⓓⓐⓨ💎 This before picture 🙈 was taken April 2, 2015. The first day of my very first round of my very first work out program I actually took seriously (because this time, I had a badass tribe behind me) ♀👭😲 damn yo, it seems like time has flown by but on that day, the journey to loving my body and figuring out who I was as a person seemed 100% impossible... it seemed SO FAR AWAY 🙈
Yet, here I am today, down a whopping 80 pounds and up more self-love and confidence than I can put into words 💖💥🙏 I can't even believe it yet myself but it's just a little proof that the process is slow, it's TOUGH, and it's emotional, but YOU WILL GET THERE!!! 💗 Fitness + Nutrition + Support + Consistency = GOALS CRUSHED ✊
Also a reminder of why taking pics is very important 📸🙏 If I didn't have pictures to look back at, I wouldn't have a reminder of how far I have actually come. I wouldn't have a reminder of the person I DO NOT WANT TO BE. Pictures are a push to keep going. Look back, realize how far you've come, and keep moving forward 😎 This little method most definitely works for me 👌 Maybe it can work for you too 🤗
**#ShiftYo 'self🙊😂😎 Accountability group opening 7/3 💪👭 my tribe and I are gonna be getting INSANE results with our new Shop Shift program while building confidence and self love at the same time 💗 10 more spots available so reach out to get in 😄 if I can do this, why the hell can't you?? 🤔🤘🤗♀
