Hipster Racism Runoff And The Search for The Black Costanza All you "but that's just the way life is" people are boring. You're entitled to your opinions and worldview but I think it's fucking boring and tired and limited and lazy and terribly uncreative. And un-American. Not to wax too poetic on it but what are we really as an international superpower/moral authority/shining beacon on a hill if not a country unique because of it's totally unparalleled access to the best cultural strengths and features of all nations and peoples. America - and especially New York City! - is where EVERYBODY in the WORLD comes to live the dream and start a new life free of the constraints of old traditions of intolerance and live among strange and different folks of different tounges and build cultural collaborations the likes of which people back in the Old Country can hardly imagine.

Hoy en día 870 millones de personas sufren de desnutrición en el mundo. Eso significa que una de cada ocho personas no tienen alimentos suficientes para estar saludable y llevar una vida activa. De hecho, el hambre y la desnutrición son el principal riesgo para la salud en todo el mundo - más que el SIDA, la malaria y la tuberculosis juntas. Entre las principales causas del hambre están los desastres naturales, los conflictos, la pobreza, la pobre infraestructura agrícola y la sobreexplotación del medio ambiente. Además del hambre que se siente cuando se tiene el estómago vacío, también existe otro tipo de hambre: el hambre oculta. Ésta es producto de la deficiencia de micronutrientes y hace a las personas más susceptibles a enfermedades infecciosas, perjudica el desarrollo físico y mental, reduce la productividad laboral y aumenta el riesgo de sufrir una muerte prematura.

By Meg Quinlan: Teenage Disney star and singer Demi Lovato was recently treated for an eating disorder, bipolar disorder, and self-mutilation, and revealed that her increasingly destructive behavior began at age 8 after being bullied by her peers. Gossip Girl’s Michelle Trachtenberg was physically assaulted by a girl who threw her down a flight of stairs, punched her in the nose, and got her sent to detention. Actress Jessica Alba used to eat lunch in the school nurses’ office to avoid her bullies, and her dad would escort her to school so that she wouldn’t be attacked. Bullying is everywhere in our schools. What Parents Need To Know About Bullying - The Online Mom What Parents Need To Know About Bullying - The Online Mom
I know people need to make a living. I know there’s a food chain, even and especially where it comes to health care and caregiving. Knowing this about people doesn’t mean I like or condone their actions. Ever since being officially diagnosed with endometriosis, I have been seeking out alternative health remedies for my illness, because the surgery did not provide pain relief. The biggest pet peeve I have regards what I call information hoarders. Here we are, women suffering horribly with an incurable, debilitating disease that we were born with, and all we want is to find out what we can do to ease our symptoms.

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world, Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law, Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The National Coalition for the Homeless is a national network of people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, activists and advocates, community-based and faith-based service providers, and others committed to a single mission: To prevent and end homelessness while ensuring the immediate needs of those experiencing homelessness are met and their civil rights protected. NCH began 30 years ago at a convening of state and local organizations working together to ensure the right to shelter and access to affordable housing for men, women, children and families who were experiencing homelessness. NCH decided early on that it would be an organization that not only welcomed the participation of people who had experienced homelessness, but made certain that there would always be a place at the table for input and decision making.
