Failure to leave your past behind
Failure to leave your past behind
По словам потерпевших, инциденты происходили с конца 1990-х по 2011 год.
Это все Кевин Спейси виноват, это после него мода пошла обвинять звёзд и высокопоставленных персон в сексуальных домогательствах, якобы произошедших десятилетия назад. А всему причина- деньги, и ничего больше. Судорожно пытаюсь вспомнить, не приставал ли ко мне какой-нибудь чиновник или президент крупной фирмы, но нет, тщетно. Ну и ладно, продолжу дальше жить на зарплату, раз так.
А опять же, кроме шуток, вдогонку к предыдущей новости снова повторю: общество, общество резко меняется. Ценности и моральные устои стёрты. Люди готовы за грош подставить друг друга. Только стоит ли такая овчинка выделки?
Задумаемся.

Инцидент произошёл в Зюзинском районе. 
Вы когда-нибудь бывали в Зюзино? Как по мне, так обычная разборка тамошних малолетних офников. Патч не поделили.
Ну а кроме шуток, товарищи, это все очень грустно. Поколение жестоких циников, не обременённых душой. Хуже меня, отвечаю.
Задумаемся.

А я вот, лично, скорее доверю своё лечение роботу, чем криворукому выпускнику современного меда, зная не понаслышке тамошний контингент. У робота все внутри заложено навсегда, а у студентов нынче в одно ухо влетело, из другого- вылетело.

Meet Andiswa Madikane, three-time female boxing champion of the Western Cape, South Africa, from the township of Khayelitsha in Cape Town. I'll speak with her in my South Africa video.  After retiring from boxing, Andiswa helped found and now manages the first of six South African branches of the organization Boxgirls International, designed to empower young girls in poor communities through boxing.  As a leader in Khayelitsha, Andiswa trains young women in self-defense boxing, academic, and lifestyle skills.  #capetown #rebellawyer #real #realpeople #travelblogger #socialissues #borntoroam

In our home, we celebrate Thanksgiving as a day to be thankful for our many blessings and to come together as a family, but we do not celebrate the historical significance of the whole idea, really. As mentioned, we also do not “celebrate” Columbus day. Still, we don’t actively protest it either or make it a day of bitterness or angry way-after-the-fact-protest, though we may slightly scoff at the idea (especially of Columbus day, just out of sheer ridiculousness of asking Natives to celebrate it) if actually asked or prodded about it.

❌TW: r*pe, pedophilia❌This is so fucked up. Btw Cyntoia was imprisoned in 2004 at the age of 16, and is now 29. She won’t be eligible for parole until 2039, when she’ll be 51.

There's a new post on the blog! It is important for us to use our voices when we can for the issues that affect us to most. Champion the issues you believe in. And most importantly, act.

Kailash Satyarthi initates 'Surakshit Bachpan Fund' to fight child sexual abuse and trafficking.
In the wake of his Bharat Yatra he has lainched this initiative to against Child Abuse.
Lack of medical facilities, legal procedures, educational opportunities and help to the survivors of child sexual assault and their families are the biggest limitation to make the country safe.
With the raise of ₹50 lac, #Kailashsatyarthi will be using the funds for this campaign.
Do you support his initiative?

This image is from my personal project Melancholy Rooms. Inspired by all the overwhelming details of our contemporary lives. From brainwashing through propaganda to smartphones addiction, from extensive consumerism to unhealthy relationships between mothers and their kids.
✖️
This was my Masters project at @lcflondon_ and an extraordinary opportunity to reflect on all the important things around me.
✖️
Commercially oriented projects are great, but I believe we as visual artists really need these type of statements of who we are as human beings. From my experience even clients with very simple and clean commercial approach really appreciate the depth behind one’s portfolio. Even if they are not going for this particular style.
Let’s embrace who we are and what we truly care about in our work! 💪🏻🖤

P.S. yes, the model was really in the water with multiple plugged in TVs. And yes I tried it on myself first.

The leave campaign is under investigation for their spending during the referendum. A lot of money was donated to one group quite soon before the vote. But why has it taken so long for this to be an issue?

The 1st car to arrive Nepal in mid 1930 had to be carried over by 120 porters and took 8 days and could only travel within the valley as there were no roads outside.

Very interesting facts about the Gurkhas (Lahures)

According to Nepali historian, Dineshraj Pant, nationally acclaimed brave Gorkhali Generals served in the renowned force of Punjab’s Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and it was said to have started in 1809 – well before the Gurkhas’ own story began. After the end of Anglo-Nepal war in 1814-16, they joined the Maharaja’s army and said to have been paid as below:

Balbhadra Kunwar (Nalapaani fame) – paid Rs10/day and increased to Rs15/day at the end when he was killed in the war against Muhammed Azim.
Amarsing Thapa – Rs7/day and paid Rs10/day when he became Captain.
Bhupalsing Thapa (Brother of Amarsing Thapa) – Captain with Rs18/day and decreased to Rs11/day later on.
Subedars (Captains equivalent) were paid Rs2/day in the same army.
Jumdars (Lieutenants) were paid Rs25/month
And Sepoys were paid Rs8/month

It was not only the army commanders but also the officers as well as soldiers followed their leaders and joined the famous forces of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. After the Maharaja’s death, the heirs weren’t as strong, powerful and ambitious as the late Maharaja and eventually defeated by the British Raj in two subsequent Sikh wars in which the Gurkhas said to have played a great role and Sikh forces eventually joined the British.

More on my coming Gurkha book, thank you!

Portrait of Jenna, shot for the Globe & Mail’s Unfounded series, exploring the way the Canadian justice system handles allegations of sexual assault.

There are many reasons why a survivor of sexual assault might choose not to report: a desire to put the trauma behind them and move on; denial about what occurred; shame; fear that they will not be believed; fear that there will be ramifications - socially, economically, psychologically or otherwise. 
These fears can be even more pronounced in smaller communities, like Whitehorse, YT, where Jenna reported being sexually assaulted by her ex-boyfriend and found herself shunned by people she had considered friends, people she could not avoid seeing around the city. 
There are also preconceived notions about how someone who is sexually assaulted should behave and when survivors’ behaviour is at odds with these notions, they can lose credibility in the eyes of their peers as well as  police and judges.
Jenna continued to have contact with her ex-boyfriend after reporting. She said police were openly frustrated about this. She felt they didn’t understand the dynamics of abusive relationships. 
The RCMP did charge him with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of assault, obstruction of justice and intimidation but the Crown stayed the charges after Jenna withdrew, feeling she would be in danger if she proceeded.
Since then she has reported her ex-boyfriend for other incidents, including breach of a no-contact order, but says she feels she is no longer taken seriously by the Whitehorse RCMP.

Anti-American or anti-imperialist? Snowflake or social activist? Are we too closed off or too uncomfortable in having conversations about issues affecting our nation's most marginalized communities?

"Arthur Timótheo da Costa (1882-1922) foi um dos maiores expoentes da arte brasileira, transitando entre a tradição e a modernidade, tanto por sua linguagem em pintura como por sua presença como artista negro, em contextos culturais dominados pela elite branca. Ele e seu irmão, o também pintor João Timótheo da Costa, estavam entre os poucos artistas negros a circular em espaços como museus de arte, naquela época.

#diadaconsciêncianegra  "Arthur Timótheo da Costa (1882-1922) foi um dos maiores expoentes da arte brasileira, transitando entre a tradição e a modernidade, tanto por sua linguagem em pintura como por sua presença como artista negro, em contextos culturais dominados pela elite branca. Ele e seu irmão, o também pintor João Timótheo da Costa, estavam entre os poucos artistas negros a circular em espaços como museus de arte, naquela época. De origem humilde, começou seus estudos em desenho e gravação na Casa da Moeda, no Rio de Janeiro.

Our third piece of the week, from popular local artist #DougBelding. This particular piece is from a recent series titled ‘Men’s Room’ based on the male figure. So often we fixate in the female figure in popular culture, I was happy to see these studies focussing on the guys. They deserve a little love too!

Rev. Jamie Johnson, who directs the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships, has reportedly blamed African Americans for turning major U.S. cities into “slums” and called Islam a “threat to American freedoms.”⠀
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Prior to joining the department in April, Johnson made a string of attacks against the African American and Muslim communities on different radio talk shows from 2008 to 2016, reports CNN’s KFile. He made frequent guest appearances on conservative talks shows and hosted his own weekend program. He also worked for several Republican presidential candidates, including Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, and Donald Trump within his home state of Iowa.⠀
⠀
According to the report, Johnson accused black Americans of being anti-Semitic, jealous of the Jewish community, and running cities into the ground during a 2008 radio appearance on Accent Radio Network.⠀
⠀
“I think one of the reasons why is because Jewish people from their coming to America in great waves in the early part of the 1800s immediately rolled up their sleeves and began to work so hard and applied themselves to education and other means of improvement and other means of climbing the, I hate this phrase, but the social ladder if you will,” Johnson said. “And they have done exceptionally well for themselves. For only representing about 1.4% of America’s population, they make up 12% of America’s millionaires. Why? Because they work,” said Johnson.⠀
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
He added, “And it’s an indictment of America’s black community that has turned America’s major cities into slums because of laziness, drug use, and sexual promiscuity." Johnson has resigned from his position as head of the DHS’s Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships on 11/17/2017 at 12:43 PM, according to a report from The Washington Post.

The horror that’s going on in Libya is once again proof that no matter how far we go, regarding our infrastructures, our politics, our environment caring and everything else that makes us think we are evolved, what we call « humanity » doesn’t really exist! We keep taking advantage from the weak, enslave them, thinking that we’re better than them just because of their race? Because of their living condition? Because of their culture? We talk about equality, we talk about democraty, we talk about religion and the greater good but in fact all these remain utopian . THIS HAS TO STOP, THIS HAS TO CHANGE, NOW! .

Tiffany // I just came back from Columbia University. It’s just a temporary leave. I was involved in a lot of student activities there, and I’m trying to get involved with political campaigns here locally. I really like the student body of the university. They’re very aware of social issues. They’re competitive, but they’re definitely nice to each other. •

"The Runaway Bride Project series: Hi, my name is Muskan Nijjar. I am a typical teenager who was raised with an Indian background because of my parents. However, I am also living in today's modern Western society, which leads to me being exposed to both viewpoints of womanhood. I have always noticed a disparity between men and women. If you're constantly seeing or hearing such things you tend to get used to it, therefore, it becomes a norm. Likewise, I used to force myself to view this disparity as a norm in society. But sometimes, there are things in this world that are strictly just wrong, and there is no changing that. This is one of those things. Women being treated like a possession, and an object, rather than a human being, is something I had to address. Hence, I started a women empowerment project called The Runaway Bride Project. This project encompasses different cultures' perspectives of women in hope to change some of our minds to a more open-minded perspective."

.
Our next two posts will be a short snippet of the larger project that Muskan is working on to shed light on the larger issues of domestic violence, forced marriages, sexism, and more. Muskan ultimately aims to build awareness and empower women with this project. If you want to get a preview of this, head over to her page (@muskannijjar7) to see some parts of the project she has posted so far!

Exactly. I used to be trash. I used to say some of the awful things that I now criticise people for saying. I tell people what they're saying is bad and explain why because I wish somebody had done the same for me when I used to be like that. I did not know any better. I repeated what I was told and what I heard adults say. I did not understand what I was saying, nor did I have the ability to comprehend it by myself. If someone had taken the time to point out the bad things I was saying and explained to me why they were bad, I feel like I would have completely understood and felt ashamed of my actions but did my best to change my behaviour and what I said because I did not want to hurt, offend or harm anyone. I just want to help people and make a more equal and happy society. 🌸

Nov. 19, 2017  Receive from, Shed on, Share in—Randomness!
Some randomness today—mainly because I’ve been reading and focusing more on a project than producing content. I miss publishing these! My reading and little project has been about writing a catchy blurb for my book, Discover Self. Create Purpose. Superhero You! For guidance and learning, I have read Bryan Cohen’s How to Write a Sizzling Synopsis. Maybe later on I’ll share what I’ve come up with. I’m only 75% of the way through the book, and I’ve had to translate the fiction principles into nonfiction applications. So far, I believe I’ve done a great job! In the meantime, I’ve been reading some social and political issue articles, ones which have frustrated me and led me to this idea: I have often written about shedding light and love, but sometimes it’s a fine line for me between Ego-responses and Heart-energized actions. For it to be Heart, I must receive from my own thoughts my ideas and allow them into my soul. How do I not only think about but also feel about any issue? Clarity is required here, not sloppy, knee-jerk name-calling. So, I read, explore, and clarify my thoughts to receive into my soul for a clear emotional response. Then, I can shed that light and love of my thoughts and emotions (because at this point of clarity Heart-energy has allowed and processed such a response, so it is Love!). I shed my light and love on the people and issues so they and others cans see how I, core Self, believe—no matter the effect or responses. How others respond—not my business. However, when some respond in their Heart-energy, we can share in mutual love and light.

My reading and little project has been about writing a catchy blurb for my book, Discover Self. Create Purpose. Superhero You! For guidance and learning, I have read Bryan Cohen’s How to Write a Sizzling Synopsis. Maybe later on I’ll share what I’ve come up with. I’m only 75% of the way through the book, and I’ve had to translate the fiction principles into nonfiction applications. So far, I believe I’ve done a great job! In the meantime, I’ve been reading some social and political issue articles, ones which have frustrated me and led me to this idea: I have often written about shedding light and love, but sometimes it’s a fine line for me between Ego-responses and Heart-energized actions. For it to be Heart, I must receive from my own thoughts my ideas and allow them into my soul. How do I not only think about but also feel about any issue? Clarity is required here, not sloppy, knee-jerk name-calling. So, I read, explore, and clarify my thoughts to receive into my soul for a clear emotional response. Then, I can shed that light and love of my thoughts and emotions (because at this point of clarity Heart-energy has allowed and processed such a response, so it is Love!). I shed my light and love on the people and issues so they and others cans see how I, core Self, believe—no matter the effect or responses. How others respond—not my business. However, when some respond in their Heart-energy, we can share in mutual love and light. A process, in a way: Receive from a Heart-tuned mind and soul my clear beliefs; Shed on the issue my light and love; Share in light and love with others! ✌️❤️😎🌏✌️❤️#discover  #self  #create  #purpose  #socialissues  #love  #light  #inspiration  #superheroYou
