I have to totally agree with Bishop Robert Barron on his excellent review of this film that came out last week! It is a very suspenseful movie, but there is a message and meaning behind a lot of the elements of this movie! I highly recommend the film as long as you are someone who can handle scary suspense movies! Get the basics for less or save on all of life’s fun extras with vitacost coupon code 15 off.

If these urinals are like the majority I find in America with a puddle underneath, the ladies could serve to make the hoses long enough to reach the target without dripping on the floor. Or they could remark on the fact that the men are not as big as they think they are, and tell them to get closer.

“Come athelets with platforms throughout the land
Who by taking a knee are taking a stand
And before you shout out that they should be banned
Listen to what they are saying
Perhaps they’d stand up if you reached out your hand
For the times they are a changing”

I sent a message of support and thanks to Mike McRaith, the Montpelier HS principal, for flying the BLM flag

I sent a message of support and thanks to Mike McRaith, the Montpelier HS principal, for flying the BLM flag. Here’s the reply I got this morning. Good guy.
Hi Kathy,
Thank you very much for your support. Over the past couple of weeks, I have received around 400 messages of support.
These messages have given me great personal strength and confidence through a time of high emotional stress and some very negative and threatening language as well.
Having the positive outnumber the negative almost 10-1 was so helpful. I’ve learned that if we support something, we have to let people know. I’ve learned that hateful messages have a terrible impact and they need positive messages to outweigh them tenfold.
This action by Montpelier Public Schools was primarily about recognizing our students who we know and care for. Because the gesture has captured the attention of the broader local and national community, we are hopeful that it can push our collective learning around privilege and implicit bias.
I’ve also learned the power of message and media as we have seen our story told in so many different lights. Please know that our local newspaper the Times Argus did a nice job telling our story. And we have had the support of several professional Vermont organizations (VT-NEA, AOE, and the VPA), and over 70 VT legislators.
Please help us in continuing this work in our daily personal and professional lives.
Sincerely,
Mike McRaith

“Lawmakers in nine states have formed a coalition to strengthen their efforts at tackling climate issues at the state level, seeking to put a price on carbon dioxide emissions while searching for market-based solutions.
…Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (R) is opposed to a carbon tax and this week rejected even studyng the idea.
“…We know Vermonters cannot afford a carbon tax. It would also be highly regressive,” Scott wrote. “A regional carbon pricing system would also put the region … at another competitive disadvantage.”
We *know*? Do we Governor Phil Scott? Really?

“We need to get to a point where burning fossil fuel is no longer socially acceptable,” he said

“We need to get to a point where burning fossil fuel is no longer socially acceptable,” he said. “I know we’ll get there, I’m pretty sure I’m on the right side of history here, but the question is how long will it take? Time isn’t on our side.”
Actions like flying, eating meat, and having kids are individual choices with huge collective impact. When does having the life we think we want right now undermine our capacity to have the life we know we want in the future?
What meaningful changes are you willing to make (and I know you can’t give back your kids)?

 Phuc Hoi is the place where people should spend at least two visits. One time to explore and another to return to experience the feeling of soft, peaceful life in the ancient, rustic and peaceful.
 
Hoi An, or I like to call it the ancient name of Faifo, certainly a place for romantics and nostalgies. It is the city of strange things, old at least, someone living in this country should also go there at least 2 times.
 
Why do you have to go to Hoi An for the first time? You just go to the Internet to find out where, what hotel, what food and where to play. You bring the psychology of a half-hearted discoverer to Hoi An, and sometimes feel wrong because that place is not like what you imagine.
 
But if you go to Faifo a second time, when you have not seen it as a tourist spot. You will find that Hoi An is like a secret lover, only you know how to discover.

 

A day of wandering to discover the peaceful beauty in Hoi An ancient town
A day of wandering to discover the peaceful beauty in Hoi An ancient town
 
The evolution of the Internet and social networking has turned your travels into a goal more than a discovery period. After all, there is nothing to discover when everything is there. So before planning to Hoi An, do not get too far. So, carry the balo up and go.
 
The second time to Hoi An, when I knew about it quite well, but I still can not stop the self-discovery of the land always hide the secret of it. Like the movie "1735 km", only when your eyes see the lanterns are lit, when the wind from the Hoai River blowing through the face, sliding the hair, you can see the comfort in the middle of the crowded place. Traveling around the world, but still enough space for you to breathe and have feelings for their own.
 
I chose a small homestay away from the center of the old town. The owner of the house is a kind-hearted couple who cares for their home from the tiny flowerpot to the arrangement of small decorative items: an antique camera, a wooden horse painted with smooth paint.
 
Hoi An is a sleepy city. Every rhythm begins almost at 10am. The shops started to open, people began to go … and on the streets, the speakers began to broadcast the news. Along Phan Chau Trinh Street is a chain of pavement shops with good food. Nobody eats chicken rice because it is the place of popular tourist, try chicken rice Mrs. Thuan in Hai Ba Trung (Phan Chau intersection) is not a bad suggestion.
 
If you are still hungry, you turn to Phan Chau Trinh high street, Quang noodles, pancake crab cakes … When the sun rises to the top of the head, I will visit the Café on Nguyen Thi Minh Khai or on Nguyen Thai Learn. Just sit and enjoy the cool, while looking at the streets are still people and chat with the owner.
 
When the sun is off and the lights are on, Hoi An is like a magnet for everyone. One day, I choose to sit on a tourist boat, sipping cold beer and rustic acoustic guitar amidst the cool breezes of the Hoai River vietnamhoiantours.com/. And if you rent a bicycle, you can go straight from Old Town to Cua Dai beach, try eating any seafood you like at reasonable prices.
 
I have been to Hoi An for the past half a month and have never felt this way before. People talk a lot about Hoi An, its old and ancient, the old town crowded with people every night but always have the space is small enough for the dreamer to breathe the air alone. Hoi An, to me is a film attractive, but no matter how many times enjoy not bored.
 
If you need to pat your soul or heal some of the "medical conditions" that are bustling everyday, just book your flight, book a cheap homestay, and so on, you’ll find life soft. Softer in the ancient place, rustic and peaceful.

People are creatures of habit, from personal patterns, food patterns to your life achievements

People are creatures of habit, from personal patterns, food patterns to your life achievements.
We tend to fall back into the hole. But who could blame you. I’ve been there and perhaps you have too?
It all started when we were conceived in the womb and lived in darkness for nine months.
Sometimes our options are limited, but perhaps it’s truly a fear of trying something new or different, breaking a pattern or breaking out of the crowd.
When we realize that life isn’t black or white, but has an equal amount of grey necessary to create sustainability and balance.
Yesterday my trainer told me that my food was good, but I need to have more food along with more variation. And that was when the pieces of the puzzle fell into place. Because how complacent are we to reenact experiences on a regular basis? Going out for drinks on Friday night, spending Sunday with family or friends, watching tv five nights a week or heating up a frozen dinner?
Now I’m not disapproving of any of these activities per se, but placing the question to you: Does doing this serve you? Does this bring you closer to whatever you want to achieve? And will this make you happy long term?
You know me, the person who likes to shake you up and who can help you create lasting change if desired or necessary.
Btw This is my grocery shopping which I did today and I’m consciously implementing diversity and variation in all aspects of my life including my meals. Get the basics for less or save on all of life’s fun extras with ruby tuesday coupons $5 off $15.

Simple, and effective:
“Every Friday afternoon, (the teacher) asks her students to take out a piece of paper and write down the names of four children with whom they’d like to sit the following week. The children know that these requests may or may not be honored. She also asks the students to nominate one student who they believe has been an �exceptional classroom citizen that week. All ballots are privately submitted to her.
And every single Friday afternoon, after the students go home, she takes out those slips of paper, places them in front of her, and studies them. �She looks for patterns.
Who is not getting requested by anyone else?
Who can’t think of anyone to �request?
Who never gets noticed enough �to be nominated?
Who had a million friends last week and none this week?

DESTROYING PUBLIC EDUCATION STEP BY STEP

DESTROYING PUBLIC EDUCATION STEP BY STEP.
If you recognize the pattern, it’s because it is becoming global.
"I’m enjoying my trip to Japan, but the conversations I had with Japanese teachers and administrators are still rattling around in my head. Every time I tried to describe the situation in special education in my school and my district, I found I had to back up and describe the entire national education system.
Many people were shocked to hear about schools like mine where nearly 30% of students are students with disabilities. I realized that in explaining why, I had to explain our hunger games choice system that pits schools against one another to attract students who score better on tests.
"Score better on tests?" they’d ask. Oh right! So, we have a federal law that forced national tests annually and those tests have high-stakes attached to them.
"What do you mean high-stakes?" Oh, sure, so if kids in your school do not perform well on the tests, the teachers can get low evaluations and be fired, the entire staff can be fired, or you entire school can get closed down.
"WHAT!?!" they’d exclaim. Right, so if you have too many students with disabilities in your school who don’t do well on tests, you can lose your job and the whole school is dismantled.
"But how is that the school’s fault?" Oh it’s not, but that’s our law right now.
"So how did your school get so many students with disabilities?" Well, one, we accept the students, we do need the money.
"Wait, what money?" Oh, your school funding is attached to enrollment. If enrollment goes down too far, you can’t run your school and have to have giant class sizes and no support staff.
"Isn’t it the district/state/federal responsibility to fund ALL schools?" Oh…haha…no, funding is totally dependent on where your school is located and what socio-economic status your schools serves.
"Hold on, so since you serve POORER kids, you get LESS money?" Well…hmmm…yes, that’s right. But back to the disproportionate number of kids with special needs in our school. Since test scores are also so important, many schools around us kick these kids out of their schools.
"You can ‘kick kids out’"? Yep, really easily. Plus we have these schools called charter schools. I haven’t told you about charters yet! So private corporations or organizations can take public money and open up schools outside many laws/regulation. They don’t need to use certified teachers, they are non-unionized and can pay dirt low salaries, and they can discriminate all they want against students with disabilities. So schools kick kids who don’t score well on tests out and we pick them up because we don’t want more budget cuts.
"Budget cuts?" Oh right, so our state didn’t have a budget for 2 years and our district kept slashing our budgets past bare bones. And our federal government is also defunding education. More money to go to the military and all. Did you know US teachers buy almost all their own supplies? Paper, scissors, glue, pencils, books….
"……"
Yeah….."
