Colors

~~March 19, 2014~~

RED – LISTEN

Listen to the repetitive thoughts, feelings and visions you are receiving now. If they feel loving and supportive (even if a little daunting) and would make a difference to you and/or others, this is your guidance and the way we are speaking to you. Pay attention, particularly when you are out in nature, in meditation or some other quiet space as this is when you’ll be more able to receive Your prayers can be answered in many forms – including in the things that you may consider ‘small’. Each step is leading you along the way!

ORANGE – BELIEVE

Believe in yourself and in your ability to manifest your desires. Do not hold yourself back because of past disappointments, but rather see them as learning curves or simply a matter of Divine Timing. As you have faith, you open the doors for what you…

Students help raise money for local animal shelter

Global News

WINNIPEG — Dozens of students helped raise thousands of dollars for the Winnipeg Humane Society on Sunday.

The students, part of the Creative Communications program at Red River College, hosted a nine-hour telethon live on Shaw TV as part of their live television course.

The class of 37 worked for weeks preparing stories and segments to air during the telethon and also worked behind the scenes directing, using cameras, answering phones and hosting the event.

“I think they get really stressed and nervous but excited until the day of, and then everything fits into place and it becomes this machine and they love it,” said broadcast journalism instructor Joanne Kelly. “Some of them say it’s the best experience they had.”

This is the third year the college students have put on the event, which brings in much-needed funds for the humane society.

“Our primary goal is to re-home as many…

Like Something Out of a Movie — Dead Bodies (of Orangutans) Found in Shallow Graves Outside P&G Plantations

gettingonmysoapbox

Brubaker movie poster.jpg

Anybody remember the 1980 movie BRUBAKER?  It starred Robert Redford as a liberal prison warden who goes undercover as a prisoner to fight against the evil correctional system when the dead bodies of prisoners are found in secret shallow graves on the prison’s own grounds.

Well, it was only a movie.  But its whole-dead-bodies-found-in-shallow-graves trope is now a reality in the Procter and Gamble palm oil controversy.  From a Greenpeace article:

The study found that P&G purchases palm oil from three particularly problematic producers and traders, Kuala Lumpur Kepong Berhad (a Malaysian company), BW Plantations and Musim Mas (both Indonesian companies). According to the investigation, land concessions owned by these companies have experienced substantial deforestation, as well as deliberately lit forest fires, destruction of peat deposits that offer a potent source of carbon, and depletion of orangutan and tiger habitat.

Then it drops this shocking BRUBAKER-like bombshell:

Over the past year, orangutan bodies…

As our human habitations encroach more and more on animal habitats, interactions become inevitable — whether that means bears eating from trash cans, seals sleeping on sofas, or baby moose caught in fences. Luckily this little buddy ran into kind-hearted humans when he got himself trapped in a wooden gate in a Canadian suburb.

OR 7 Expedition–1,200 miles following a lone wolf

Wolves and Writing

OR 14 OR 14

While Journey carries on his quiet existance in southeast Oregon, a group of five ambitious folks are making plans to retrace the enigmatic wolf’s footsteps, from Wallowa County to northern California, a distance of over 1,200 miles.

I received an email from Jay Simpson, who holds the lengthy title of National Geographic Young Explorer & Multimedia Documentary Producer for the Wolf OR-7 Expedition. Jay explained the purpose of the trek is to “share the story of wolves returning to the Pacific Northwest and champion the collaborations that have made his (OR 7’s) journey possible.”

The trek is the brainchild of Oregonian Rachael Pecore-Valdez, a storyteller and educator. She’ll be on the trip (which begins in May and will be on foot or on bike) as well as Dave Moskowitz, author of Wolves in the Land of Salmon, Daniel Byers, and filmmaker, Galeo Saintz, founder of Wild Peace Alliance, along…

Don’t Trust Google to Protect Email from the NSA

Nwo Report

Internet giant has done business with NSA and CIA

Source: Kurt Nimmo

On Thursday the media made a big deal about Google’s announcement it has beefed up Gmail security. In a post on the official Gmail blog, Nicolas Lidzborski, Gmail Security Engineering Lead, said the corporation “will always use an encrypted HTTPS connection when you check or send email” and the change “means that no one can listen in on your messages as they go back and forth between you and Gmail’s servers—no matter if you’re using public WiFi or logging in from your computer, phone or tablet.”


Google, however, did not mention the NSA, the primary threat to online privacy, and for good reason – Google cannot protect your data from the eavesdropping colossus and, considering its past dealings with the agency, cannot be trusted to protect data.

The NSA has used a sizable portion of its classified…

Veteran with service dog turned away by Saskatchewan restaurant

Global News

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. – A military veteran who needs a service dog says he was turned away from a restaurant in Saskatchewan.

Michael Sharron, who has post-traumatic stress disorder, says he needs the dog, Rylie, with him for medical reasons.

Sharron says he and his father-in-law went to a Smitty’s restaurant in a Prince Albert mall for lunch on March 3.

He says they were greeted by a man, who turned out to be the owner, who told them that dogs weren’t allowed.

Sharron says he explained that he needed Rylie with him for medical reasons, but when asked what they were, Sharron wouldn’t go into details.

Owner Ray Littlechilds says Sharron gave no indication he was an Armed Forces veteran.

“I told him that he was a service dog, and he was certified, and he said, `Is he a seeing-eye dog?’ I said, `No, he’s for a medical service…

Saving Wildlife By Going to the Source of the Problem

It may seem counterintuitive and even downright risky. But protecting habitat often involves working closely with the people doing the damage. It can mean supplying efficient sawmills to rainforest loggers who might otherwise hack the timber they harvest into planks with chain saws. It can mean helping communities in Africa manage trophy-hunting concessions more profitably so they don’t need to kill as many animals. And it can mean introducing better fishing practices to fishermen who are inadvertently killing thousands of endangered loggerhead turtles every year.

The object isn’t to make exploiting the environment easier, faster, more destructive. Instead, says Hoyt Peckham, it’s about setting up a framework to help people focus on resources that can withstand the pressure—and then get the full value from whatever they harvest. Helping them earn more while harvesting less gets their buy-in…

Costco’s Kirkland Signature chicken recalled due to possible listeria

Global News

OTTAWA – The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is advising people not to consume Kirkland Signature brand grilled chicken breast strips due to possible listeria contamination.

The product, which is being recalled by Freshouse Foods Ltd., was sold at Costco stores in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, but may also have been sold in other provinces.

The recalled product was sold in 500-gram packages with a UPC code of 0-96619-70787-4 and best before dates of April 13 to April 26.

CFIA says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the chicken but anyone who has the product at home should throw it out or return it to the store where it was purchased.

The recall was triggered by CFIA test results and the agency says it is conducting a food safety investigation, which may lead to the recall of other products.

Farley Chatto shows luxury furs at Toronto fashion week

Global News

TORONTO – Farley Chatto received a warm welcome back to the Toronto runway as the longtime homegrown designer presented a collection of luxury furs.

In a recent interview, Chatto said his last official show in 2008 featured menswear, but he was motivated to return to the catwalk to show a full fur line after seeing others incorporate bits and pieces of fur in their collections.

His collection – dubbed “Far & Away” – was unveiled on Thursday at Toronto’s World MasterCard Fashion Week, with luxury furs including mink, fox and chinchilla featured in a variety of coats, capelets, vests, stoles, scarves and trapper hats.

“Predominantly, the biggest change you’re going to notice is the fit. There are going to be much more fitted, much narrower,” Chatto said about the new line.

“You’re going to get nice fitted tops, narrow armholes, narrow sleeves – as much as you can do with…

It’s Time for the USDA to Stop Boiling Chickens Alive | One Green Planet

Life or Lunch?

url1-1200x800

There’s something exceedingly foul about how poultry is slaughtered in the United States.

First, some background: In 1958, Congress passed The Humane Slaughter Act, to require animal welfare improvements in our nation’s slaughterhouses. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) exempts poultry from its enforcement of the law, even though birds represent more than 8.8 billion of the 9 billion animals slaughtered annually in the United States.

That’s right: The agency charged with enforcing the Humane Slaughter Act refuses to enforce it for more than 98 percent of slaughtered animals.

Because the USDA refuses to protect them, most birds are subjected to abuses that would warrant cruelty convictions under federal law if cows or pigs were the victims. You really have to see poultry slaughter to believe it, but as just one example, USDA records indicate that almost a million chickens are boiled alive every year when they…

Posse casts wide ‘Net’ in Quest to catch Horse Rustlers

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Story by MIKE TIGHE as published in the LaCrosseTribune.com

“It’s been devastating and horrific,”

Angela Joseph describes the theft of her beloved Morgan, Jimmy, as “devastating and horrific.”

LA VALLE, Wis. — Social media sites have been sworn in to the posse trying to track down rustlers who apparently stole two horses from a farm that provides therapy for veterans and children.

“Whoever did it is pretty slimy, because anyone who knows us knows we help veterans and kids,” said Barbara Knopf, the owner and founder of Veterans Equine Trail Services (VETS).

The horses are believed to have been stolen March 14, with no signs that they simply wandered off, according to Knopf and the Sauk County Sheriff’s Department.

“We have a few leads that we can’t discuss openly at this time,” sheriff’s detective Scott Dadam said Thursday.

Meanwhile, Knopf and an Army veteran who owns one of the…
