I grew up in what would now correctly be considered a toxically masculine culture. Casual homophobia and racism were part of my cultural landscape, as was fighting, bragging, guns, and hunting. To a sixteen-year-old me, there was no greater insult than to be accused of acting feminine, and no greater show of weakness than to back down from a physical confrontation. Almost as bad as the ultimate cowardice of running away from a physical confrontation, however, was to over-prepare: The euphemism of bringing a gun to a knife fight. By the honor code I lived by, this was unthinkable. In fact, most of the teen boys my age wore a belt knife every day, even to school. We engaged in serious fistfights without ever considering drawing the deadly weapon from our own belt.
They do not know any better, despite all the proof they are offered. To place Republicans, who as a general rule, deny climate change, in positions at the Environmental Protection Agency is just wow. Climate change is real, it is a fact, and it is not going way. 2018 marks the end of seven years of drought in California. Think about what that means; many have done away with their lawns except in Southern California where the snoots actually import water for their prissy, perfect lawns while poorer neighborhoods have soccer lawns dry up. Yes, Los Angeles is a land of a lot of income inequality.
Conservative Republicans hang on every word of the Trump administration until hurricanes devastate other states, since humans driving, for example, cause climate change. The ideological hot mess between Democrats and Republicans will only get worse until Republicans get their heads out of their hats in order to see that climate change actually happens. Gallup found that 85 percent of Democrats are reasonable enough to see that human activity has lead to climate change, and 38 percent of Republicans agree. To continue to deny climate change is just ridiculous.
If a friend of mine in the 1990s mentioned that having to wear shorts in the winter means that climate change is happening, then by now after the seven year drought we had in California, I agree with her. Climate change should not be up for debate on this planet. We are stuck with the one planet we have and we are busy polluting, causing our own problems, and shooting ourselves in the foot. Regardless of what side you are on, conservative or liberal, you have to make sure to see that climate change needs to be addressed formally. It is backwards to pretend otherwise.
Should we all be putting aside our differences and working together to fix the problems we have made for ourselves?
Boss Man Troi “Star” Torain acknowledges Atatiana Jefferson’s father Mr. Marquis Jefferson for his stance on postponing the funeral of his daughter. He then goes to the other topic of what it means to be a freedom fighter, in particular, a black one. Star talks about his Skype session with his girlfriend in California. Boss Chick Ronnie joins the show with her spirited voice. The two discuss the bizarre Cuba Gooding Jr. video that has resurfaced on the internet. Mr. Torain said that he looked like he was allegedly on “some good s––.” Ronnie says that to raise $250,000 is questionable. Star says that these family members want to purchase “C-Classes and take trips down to the Canary Islands”...allegedly.
On a Tuesday, Mr. Torain describes the rainy and cold weather as a sign of Autumn, which is part of “cuffing season.” He thought about locking down a female, and then banished the idea. Star says that he will be going harder in this webisode. New information says that Atatiana aimed her firearm at the officer(s) according to the eight-year-old nephew. In relation to the main topic, Star doesn’t care what LeBron James has to say. Mr. Torain then asks whether James is an expert of foreign policy. Star insists that the basketball megastar should be focused on a “goddamn championship.” A total of fourteen women have spoken out against Cuba Gooding Jr.
Sometimes, it's hard to let go of a national icon.
Star wants to be called f–– nut during this missive. He says that he knows Atlanta and that he used fishscale at Sharon’s Showcase. He admits that he has not been at a Waffle House in fifteen years. He experienced “the worst breakfast in years” there. He threw away the entire meal on the way home and considered not even giving the food to his coyotes when he discarded the unwanted victuals. Anyone who wears lochs and not a net disturbs Mr. Torain. Star then gets on topic and discusses Jim Jones’ success. He wonders if he sent 50 Cent a warning shot, though. On Instagram, according to Mr. Torain, he called Jim Jones a rat. Star breaks down how rich people have shooters and 50 definitely has a team on deck.
The "Arco Minero del Orinoco" is an area rich in mineral resources that the Republic of Venezuela has been exploiting since 2017; it occupies mostly the north of the Bolivar state and to a lesser extent the northeast of the Amazonas state and part of the Delta Amacuro state. 7000 tons of gold, copper, diamond, coltan, iron, bauxite and other minerals can be found here.
Accusations against Prince Andrew, Harry and Meghan’s war with the tabloids, and Boris Johnson deceiving the Queen: It’s been a somewhat tumultuous summer for the royal family. Usually detached from the nit and grit of journalistic controversy, this summer has seen all facets of the monarchy’s composition come under fire: Is the royal family above the law? Where should ultimate political power reside? As a country championing equality, is it right that one family is ‘more equal than the rest?’
It's October, and there are a few things that will not change about Canada. One is that snow is expected, two is that Halloween will come, three is that people forget how to drive when the snow falls. The one thing that will change is the fact that we have elections coming up pretty quick here, so I need to decide who to vote for, so it's time to bring in the candidates.
Prince Harry made a shocking announcement that his wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, is suing the Mail on Sunday for publishing excerpts from a private and personal letter she wrote to her father Thomas Markle back in February. The announcement came on the last day of the couple's successful 10-day tour in South Africa with their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Prince Harry made the announcement just 24 hours before he and his family were scheduled to return home.
Marine pollution occurs when chemicals, particles, industrial waste, agricultural waste, residential waste, noise, or invasive organisms enter into and harm the ocean ecosystem. Each year, billions of pounds of trash and other pollutants enter the ocean. Some pollutants come from a single, known source, like an oil spill. In other cases, the pollution is caused by an overabundance of a natural organism, like an algae bloom. Even sound can cause pollution—busy areas with lots of shipping traffic are unnaturally noisy, which harms the marine ecosystem. But most marine pollution comes from many smaller, dispersed sources, like septic tanks, cars, trucks, boats, trash, or farming.
