A writer for the new york times interviewed a series of people who had survived jumping off the golden gate bridge. Every person she interviewed admitted that about two thirds of the way down, they realized that every seemingly meaningless problem that caused them to jump was fixable.

Every single one.

THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

See this picture? This comes from a town in Canada where a 24 pack of water bottles is 104 dollars and formula milk for a baby is priced at 55 dollars a pack. What’s more, a pack of diapers is 95 dollars and one head of lettuce is 26 dollars. Inuit people are starving in a country known for it’s generosity.
If you don’t believe this is true, you can find more images like this here. This is the only grocery store these people have in their small towns, and many people are going hungry & elderly are dying faster.
You’ll send aid to foreign children that are starving, so why won’t you pay a little extra to feed the people in your own country who work hard & still can’t afford the prices for healthy food for their families?
Please have a heart and reblog this photo to raise awareness that even in our own countries people are starving, join the movement and show the government that we won’t sit by and watch people starve. 
If you think this will make your blog ugly you’re wrong. Children in a first world country are getting sick & starving, and nobody is even aware it’s happening. You can let people know by reblogging and showing you care. People I am close to, my friends and future in-laws are going through this. 

Love how little attention this post gets from my beach blog followers.

Ok I didn’t think this could possibly be for real, but I found a news source on the matter. This is insane.

YES, this is real.

the way the Canadian government treats the native people here is actually disgusting. The reserves sometimes have a lower life expectancy and the general living quality of third world countries. This isn’t common knowledge and it needs to be.

Fitness Challenge: Quarter Khepri

Some folks in the Analytics industry are pulling together a June fitness challenge. There are two components: a fitness pledge and a charity appeal.

My fitness pledge is 50 treadmill miles in June.

The official challenge charity appeal is ACS Relay for Life: donate here

————————————————————————————————————————————

There’s an option to do a personal charity appeal, but instead of doing something of my own, I’d like you to read and consider this:

1.) My friend Melissa was the first to get me to do a 5K, basically because she just never even stopped to think I couldn’t do it. It was one of those little important things, and she probably never even thought of it. That’s how she rolls. Melissa’s charity area is autism research. On her behalf, I encourage you to support the Doug Flutie Jr Foundation or your favorite autism charity (look for local events! like, you know… 5Ks) 

2.) My friend Brian is a fitness muse. He showed me not only could I do it, but that there are whole other levels I could take it. (Yes, that’s why my challenge is entitled quarter Khepri) Brian does tons of his own advocacy work and I strongly encourage you to follow him directly. He’s active on Tumblr and Twitter. On his behalf I encourage you to support Ewaso Lions or your favorite large cat charity. 

3.) If you are in it for the analytics and want to support someone in our industry, I direct your attention to the works and wisdom of John Marshall. He is running a campaign to build a school in Haiti. Read all about it and then donate.

None of those speak to you? Help out or donate at your local food bank or donate to your local hospice.

If all else fails, be one of THESE PEOPLE. I love those people.

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.

No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it.

When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me.

Important and vital

These paintings have been stolen from a gallery in Seattle.  I am reposting this from this Facebook post about the theft, by request of a friend of the artist.  Please reblog this, especially if you are in the Seattle area.

ARTWORK STOLEN:PLEASE Re-post/Share on your wall (especially Washington State residents). Thanks, for any help.Four of my paintings from my most recent art show went missing and unfortunately, it seems somebody brazenly walked in, took them off the walls, and stole them. The paintings most likely disappeared sometime during the last weekend of April (maybe a day or two before I arrived to pick up my artwork this Sunday 4/27).The paintings were displayed in Seattle in the main lobby of the:OK Hotel212 Alaskan Way S.Seattle WA, 98104(Otherwise known as OK Gallery during Pioneer Square artworks.) The building is secured with code/key entry only. I have filed a police report in Seattle, and an investigation is underway, by the police and management. $3,600.00 worth of paintings were stolen. Everybody please keep an eye out for them, especially in the Pioneer Square area, (you’ll recognize my style if you see them) they might be hanging on somebody’s wall right now, or for sale online somewhere. If you have any info about my four stolen paintings please contact me via Facebook Message, E-mail or call or text my phone.E-mail: contact@divinemania.comPhone: (Please call/text this number only if you have info about my missing paintings.)425.971.4099To the thief, if he/she sees this somewhere: I’m flattered that you liked my artwork so much, but you not only stole $3,600. worth of my artwork, you stole over 100 hours of my time and labor. You stole some of my favorite ‘children.’ If you return the paintings in the condition they were in when I had them hanging on the walls then I will not press charges and I will ask no questions. I simply want my artwork back, intact. The art world is competitive and difficult enough, but now I also have to worry about people who lack virtues, swooping in, and stealing over a month of my dedicated time, passion and labor? Shame on you for stealing from a poor artist. Contact me, return the artwork, and no questions will be asked and no charges will be filed against you.The artworks are shown above:
"The Sun at Midnight"Oil on Canvas, 24”, 30”"The Language of The Birds"Oil on Canvas 24”, 36”"Into crumpled paper, hope had collapsed."Mixed Media on Canvas, 30”, 30”"…Our dreams lay still, one wing clutching at air."Mixed Media on Canvas, 30”, 30”Please re-post/share this on your wall. Thanks for the help everyone, and hopefully I will have my paintings returned.

I don’t understand these kinds of crimes. Why would you want to hang art on your wall by an artist who fucking hated you?  Do people think artists are rich, that they deserve to be punished by having their work stolen? And why is the gallery so insecure and unobservant as to let multiple, large paintings just walk out the front door?
My very first gallery show was when I was 12 years old.  It wasn’t a school thing or a scholarship contest, it was a real gallery, albeit a small one, above a vintage clothing store in my hometown.  After commissioning a chalk pastel drawing of the Lady Godiva from me, a middle-aged man tried to haggle over the price ($60), and when I told him to go stuff his bullshit, he stole it from the gallery as soon as my back was turned.
So the kind of person who steals artwork from galleries, is the kind of person who cheats a 12-year-old girl out of a commissioned painting and then probably goes home and jerks off about it.  He had a college-aged daughter he tried to use as leverage against me, like maybe I would lower the price to impress her.
Reblog this, and remember these paintings.  When you see them on someone’s wall, you’ll know what kind of person they really are.
