I Sometimes Despair

400 million died because of needless poverty in the last 22 years; 1 in 3 women raped or abused sometime in their lives; 200 million girls missing. [see GodKnows.info. ] Now we have a dog showing  more compassion than humans. We have a two year old girl run down; the van pauses then drives over her with the back wheels; passersby ignore her; traffic ignores her; another truck drives over her legs. THIS IS A TWO YEAR OLD CHILD!!!!!

What can you say? I am practically struck dumb. Future historians will view this period as a dark age. Inequality has never, in the history of humanity, been more blatant. Women, in the history of humanity, have never been more abused. Empathy in the history of humanity has never been more wanting. A street dog has more compassion. The crimes perpetrated by the rich, knowingly demanding an increase in wealth that destroys the poor has never been on such a scale as it is these days. Mens dominance over women, abusing them…oh I can’t go on…

Is anybody out there? Is anybody listening?

The Song Is Nelly Furtado who lives the life On September 27, 2011, Furtado announced during Free the Children‘s We Day Toronto, that she was giving $1,000,000 to Free the Children’s effort to build girls’ schools in the Maasai region of Kenya.

love this song perfect for zen pencils:

What they say what they say what they say

You speak out all you feel is defiance
All you need is some self-reliance
Cause this world is gonna always try us
And all you wanted was to run for cover
Well here’s looking to yourself and no other
We’re all searching for that special something
And we keep on running

We all have the choice to take the lead or follow
I want to feel the light shine on me

You’re so afraid of what people might say
But that’s okay cause you’re only human
You’re so afraid of what people might say
But that’s okay you’ll soon get strong enough
You’re so afraid of what people might say
But that’s okay cause you’re only human
You’re so afraid of what people might say
You’re going to break
So please don’t do it

You wanna spread your wings but you’re not sure
Don’t wanna leave your comforts
Wanna find a cure
We’re afraid of who we see in the mirror
We wanna let go but it feels too pure
Who wants to be alone in this world
You look around and all you see is hurt
But the light it always finds us
If we move with a little trust

A diamond don’t define what shine is
I don’t need a Rolex to know what the time is
You got your let me find what mine is
I’m a survivor look how strong my mind is
I stand on my own it’s all me
Regardless of whatever they call me

I’m a leader not a follower
And I’d rather be paid and popular
Ride homie get your dollars up
We’re in the belly of the beast that already swallowed us

The inspiration for the animation came from the following:

Sophie Scholl (1921-1943) was a German activist who is famous for speaking out against the Nazi regime. Scholl was a member of a protest group called The White Rose, which was formed by her brother Hans, and some of his university friends. The group mainly consisted of students in their early twenties who were fed up with the totalitarian rule of the government. The Nazis controlled every aspect of society – the media, police, military, judiciary system, communication system, all levels of education and all cultural and religious institutions. The White Rose distributed leaflets urging their fellow Germans to oppose the regime through non-violent resistance.

On 22nd February 1943, after the release of the sixth White Rose leaflet, Sophie, Hans and fellow member Christoph Probst were arrested by the Gestapo and convicted of treason. They were executed that same day by guillotine. Sophie was 21 years old.

From my mate Shaun Keaveny’s Breakfast show on BBC 6 music :

” The Duchy of Cornwall has issued a statement that their riders are too heavy for their horses.” The Duchy is worth over £400 million. Belonging to The Prince of Wales. 25,000 mainly kids are dying of avoidable poverty every day. These people are too fat are eating far to much to ride their horses. Quit rightly Shaun started taking the piss. THIS IS A Scandal .

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT!

 

All I know is this: the ravens kiss my mouth,

The veins are tangled here,

The sea is made of blood.

All I know is this: the hands reaching out,

My eyes are closed, my ears are closed.

The sky rejects my scream.

All I know is this: my nostrils drip with dreams,

The hounds lap us up, the fools laugh out,

The clock ticks out the dead.

All I know is this: my feet are sorrow here,

My words are less than lilies,

my words are clotted now

The ravens kiss my mouth.

it’s a Girl Documentary Film

 

itsagirlposterIn India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls(1) are missing in the world today because of this so-called “gendercide”.
Girls who survive infancy are often subject to neglect, and many grow up to face extreme violence and even death at the hands of their own husbands or other family members.
The war against girls is rooted in centuries-old tradition and sustained by deeply ingrained cultural dynamics which, in combination with government policies, accelerate the elimination of girls.
Shot on location in India and China, It’s a Girl reveals the issue. It asks why this is happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women.
The film tells the stories of abandoned and trafficked girls, of women who suffer extreme dowry-related violence, of brave mothers fighting to save their daughters’ lives, and of other mothers who would kill for a son. Global experts and grassroots activists put the stories in context and advocate different paths towards change, while collectively lamenting the lack of any truly effective action against this injustice.
It’s a Girl is now available for screening events globally. (Learn more about bringing It’s a Girl to your city!)

Douglas Adams

Taken from http://i.dunno.boz

dna61Douglas Noel Adams (11 March 1952 – 11 May 2001) was an English writer, humorist, and dramatist. He is best known as the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which started life in 1978 as a BBC radio comedy before developing into a “trilogy” of five books that sold more than 15 million copies in his lifetime, a television series, several stage plays, comics, a computer game, and in 2005 a feature film. Adams’s contribution to UK radio is commemorated in The Radio Academy’s Hall of Fame.[1]

Adams also wrote Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (1987) and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (1988), and co-wrote The Meaning of Liff (1983), Last Chance to See (1990), and three stories for the television series Doctor Who. A posthumous collection of his work, including an unfinished novel, was published as The Salmon of Doubt in 2002.

Adams became known as an advocate for environmentalism and conservation, and also as a lover of fast cars, cameras, technological innovation, and the Apple Macintosh. He was a staunch atheist, famously imagining a sentient puddle who wakes up one morning and thinks, “This is an interesting world I find myself in—an interesting hole I find myself in—fits me rather neatly, doesn’t it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!” to demonstrate the fallacy of the fine-tuned Universe argument for God.[2] Biologist Richard Dawkins dedicated his book The God Delusion (2006) to Adams, writing on his death that “Science has lost a friend, literature has lost a luminary, the mountain gorilla and the black rhino have lost a gallant defender.”

A HERO OF MINE. He would have been 61 today. When I turned 60 his movie Hyperland see Micons.org changed my life again. The Hitchikers Guide had already done that however h2g2 aside I started investigating this remarkable man and realised he had touched many lives too. A great man in all senses of the word.! Miss you love you DNA born at the same time (same week) as DNA was discovered. Died a star.

Freebies and domains

 

(all links are in bold and open a new window) Its funny I spent a few posts warning you about freebies now I am giving you some. Firstly let me give you a Freebie. If you need to capture ANY image on your computer screem then get 4Shared Shot it is awesome. You can capture anything on your screen. It sits in your task bar tray. Another great facility is Zoom.it You can have any image on the net and zoomify it.

 

Look at this!Just get the url of the image, copy it then paste it into http://zoom.it. Get the embed code and paste it into your web site or blog. If you want Deep Zoom composer the free program is here! You will probably need a windows ID. You can see it in action here
One thing I love about wordpress is the free themes and plugins. Most things on the Internet are free BUT as I have said before Domains are NOT free NOR IS HOSTING. So UseMe.biz.

Free Graphics program that I use a lot is Expression Design and I use Expression Web for editing html. Both great programs and free from Microsoft .

I don’t know what anti virus program you use but Microsoft Security Essentials which is free, is excellent.  . In four years I have had no virus.

_____________________________________________________

Here is a list of my Domains. At €10 a year why not? 21st Century Networks,( 2stcn a short form for convenience), is the global site for my domains. Avatar Creations is to provide a professional service for business and academics using Second Life, a 3D Immersive cybercommunity. Family Blogs does what it says, every family should have a blog. with a colleague we run two radio stations. Freedom Radio is in process. Most of the cyber domains do what they say on the box. Dude Starship is my avatar.

Hosting and domain registration, sub domains are 2ndlife, Irish Secure,nhys.biz (wix), secondlifehosting.com (wixx) ImACoolChick, and my virtual space. mygf and mybf are for those who want a sub domain eg wynter.mygf.biz, dude.mybf.biz

My Blues sites are still in the embryo stage, I have yet to contact the DJs and the hosts to get their take on the blues in second life. I’ll put them up on secondlifeblues.com. I think it will be really interesting.

i have hyperconnectivity.me and familyblogs.me to add to the mix.

Dunno, pjfbncyl, this blog, omgg, oknp, jnanabodhi (my Buddhist site), onlymoi, are all personal domains. Registering domains is my hobby. As I have my own hosting company it costs nothin to host. I generally put up a front page then a blog in a sub directory. omgg.net took 20 minutes to do the front page and about 2 hours to do blog.omgg.net i love 4 lette domains that have a meaning. omgg has loads:

  • oh my good god
  • oh my golly gosh
  • oh my gossip girl
  • oh my gay god (?)
  • oh my goodness gracious
  • extra emphasis for omg

I have a passion for creating web sites and blogs. If you want this animation and tune you can download the zip file here by right clicking and save link

You may have noticed I also love making videos. My youtube channei is youtube.com/philipjamesbryan I also have another video site TechnologyIsMe.blip.tv

 

IF YOU NEED ANTI VIRUS SOFTWARE then be cautious. I run Microsoft Security Essentials I find other anti virus software a pain. This is free and is designed by microsoft for microsoft operating systems. Makes sense to me.

I use free web sites to test, advertise and to see what they can do. I have :

  • Webnode : I like webnode it uses a nice interface. If you want to practice go for it. Here is a site I made BUT if your reguster with them YOU DO NOT GET CPANEL (control panel) So you are severly limited with what you can do. Great for practice no good for permanent.
  • Weebly : Uses the same modular sustem as Webnode . It works well and I have an advertising site there. You can view it here but I haven’t finished yet. Been getting 3 emails a day asking me to upgrade. No htank you. No control panel only the modules.
  • Wix : I love theinterface its html 5 far superior to the others. I bought two templates I liked it so much. http://secondlifehosting.com BUT AGAIN NO control panel. I registerd that domain so I could use the template for http://2ndlife.biz it is a mirror BUT I have control panel with 2ndlife.biz with unlimited emails, sub domains etc etc.
  • WordPress will offer to host your domain however if it does you do not get s self hosted site with plugins. You are limited. I registered two so i could get the dot me addresses eCollege.me and hyperconnectivity.me its expensive too.

These sites are all well and good but they end up producing the same kind of web site. Always ask can I create sub domains and the important one EMAILS! You want to have full control over them. The sites above are a blog. REMEMBER A DOMAIN IS FOR A LONG TIME NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS ………hardy har har but you get my drift.

The Internet is not static. However you can be sure the generic top level domains, dot com, biz, info, net amd org are not going away. We have seen a major revolution in the programming language of the web, html5. I want a control panel to CONTROL my domain. I do not want someone else to control it. I want to control emails too.

&nbsp
You Can get a free copy of Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 2 Here when you create an Adobe account.

Thats about it you should be OK for now. You should get a Domain shouldn’t you?

You got a friend

When you’re down and troubled
And you need some loving care
And nothin’, nothin’ is goin’ right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’ to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend

If the sky above you
Grows dark and full of clouds

And that old north wind begins to blow
Keep your head together
And call my name out loud
Soon you’ll hear me knockin’ at your door

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come runnin’, runnin, yeah, yeah,
to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there, yes I will

Now ain’t it good to know
that you’ve got a friend
When people can be so cold
They’ll hurt you, yes, and desert you
And take your soul if you let them
Oh, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I’ll come runnin, runnin’, yeah, yeah, yeah

This came on the radio and it made me think about friendship. How precious it is. I used to play this song when I was a bartender / dj in a bar in Torremolinos in the early 70s . Love is ok but when you’ve got a friend its something special. The power of music is awesome. I love listening to BBC 6 Music. ITS WORLD BOOK DAY!! Please visit the library. I did my cv yesterday. Here it is:
