Purim – 15 March 2019

Jews around the world ceLooklebrate Purim, which begins this year on the evening of 15 March and ends the next night. The holiday commemorates an episode said to date to the 4th Century BC, recorded in the Book of Esther, in which a plot to kill all of the Persian empire’s Jews was foiled by the Jews’ leader Mordechai and by the king’s Jewish wife, Esther. The holiday is traditionally celebrated with gifts, recitations and a celebratory meal. Here, Haredi Jews read from the Book of Esther in a synagogue in Bnei Brak, Israel. But it is in Tel Aviv that the celebration is one of the liveliest, with a massive street party and live music.

Las Fallas – Valencia Spain 15 to 19 March

From 15 to 19 March, the Spanish city of Valencia explodes – sometimes literally – with the festival of Las Fallas. The city’s different quarters compete over who can have the most impressive volley of firecrackers, and on the final night, called the Night of Fire, enormous papier-mâché figures called ninots, often satirizing politicians or other well-known figures, are burned in a blaze of glory. For those who prefer flowers to fire, there is also the Ofrenda de Flores a la Virgen de los Desamparados (Floral Offering to Our Lady of the Forsaken) on 17 and 18 March, when people wear traditional regional dress, dance to folk music and offer bouquets to the Virgin Mary’s

Grey Whale Watching

Grey whale watching – all month

From January until the beginning of April, some 10,000 grey whales gather along Mexico’s Baja Peninsula to mate and give birth. These gentle giants of the sea world, at up to 16m long and 40 tonnes, are otherwise quite elusive, spending most of their time underwater. During whale-watching season, though, it is common for them to swim right up to tourists’ boats – sometimes even allowing themselves to be stroked. (Omar Torres/AFP/Getty)

Holi – 17 March 2014

According to Hindu tradition, the god Krishna, who had a dark complexion, worried the fair-skinned goddess Radha would never accept him. Krishna’s mother, frustrated, told him to colour Radha’s face however he wanted. Today, Hindus around the world celebrate Krishna’s playful application of colour to Radha’s face by doing the same, with people painting one another’s faces, frolicking in the streets and spraying coloured water and powders, as shown here in Vrindavan, India. This year, the holiday takes place on 17 March. Celebrations happen throughout India, but for one of the most boisterous, vivacious festivals, head to Delhi, which includes the traditional Street dancing & colour throwing. India Truly a Nation who celebrates LIFE!

NOSTRADAMUS

Among Nostradamus’ more dire predictions about the future is the threat of international war destabilizing global security. Nostradamus’ followers point to a particular passage, Quatrain Century VIII, which mentions the East weakening the West. Century VIII 59-60 reads: “Twice put up and twice cast down, the East will also weaken the West. “It’s adversary after several battles chased by sea will fail at time of need. “First in Gaul first in Romania, over land and sea will be against the English and the Parisians. “Marvelous deeds by that great troop, violent, the wild beast will lose Lorraine. “Further passages in the same quatrain speak of the “holy temple” being plundered, France falling to ruin and a butcher “gaining an empire through force.

City Streets- ‘Whoo- da-Thunk?’

 I’m sure like all of us. your city is routed mostly by its streets. Each one named, but why that name? 1,607 Canadian communities have a Main St. The number one though is 2nd street with 2,022. Whooda Thunk? What about all the other street names.  would they probably have a window into local history,  from every different layer of a city’s past.
The city I have chosen for my first Whoo-da -Thunk?   is Hamilton Ontario


George Hamilton (1788–1836) was a Canadian merchant and politician, who founded the city of Hamilton, Ontario.
Hamilton, Ontario, incorporated as a city in 1846 with a population 6,832. Population is now 747,545. Feb 8, 2017
And the street I chose Aberdeen. So let start at the very beginning and follow the yellow brick road…..Here we go,,,

Off to Aberdeen
Scotland I believe 

Nature provides the wherewithal for Aberdeenshire’s “water of life”. Whether it’s the toasted barley from the fertile farmlands, the ice-clear mountain water from burns and springs, the smoky peats and heather honey from heath and moors, or simply the sparkling fresh air – the whisky distilleries are busy bottling the essence of this beautiful place.

Ava Gardner
‎”I wish to live to 150 years old, but the day I die, I wish it to be with a cigarette in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other.”

They presided over the opening of the Hamilton Public Library on September 16, 1890.Lord Aberdeen was appointed Governor General of Canada in 1893

Conservatism: The Politics of Ignorance and Self-Interest

Conservatism goes beyond merely conserving the past; it also is uneasy with change, even suspicious of it, and is reluctant to embrace it. There is a certain fear among conservatives that change won’t necessarily add to the quality of life and should therefore be viewed with suspicion.Conservative economics generally revolve around the idea that the best economic model is a form of capitalism based on principles they call “free enterprise
This economic model supplements the view that government power is normally counterproductive by extending that concept to a cynical view of government involvement in the marketplace. Most conservatives take as their economic model Adam Smith’s 18th-century treatise on economics, “The Wealth of Nations,”a theory of free-enterprise capitalis
m.

Who Are The Conservatives?

white, more than three-quarters male,. Most were from upper-class backgrounds or from the management of corporations. The presence of large numbers of religious fundamentalists. Yet another group of conservatives are middle class (mostly) men of limited education who feel alienated and victimized by liberal policies which they feel have not been to their benefit. These men often come from poor and working class backgrounds and fail to realize that their upward mobility was often made possible by the very liberal policies, such as the numerous social programs. made possible by the very liberal policies, they now angrily denounce

Doug Ford speaks ‘For the People’ – just not low-income people. 
Inclusive government seeking to be fair to the entire community is more easily promised than delivered. Especially when some on the far left or far right view “fairness” as a code word used by elites to camouflage pandering to various special interests. This project, abruptly cut short, was being watched carefully around the world by business, governments, NGOs and the media. It is obvious that a failure to reduce the gap between rich and poor is a threat to a balanced economic model that

accommodates growth, investment, profits 1 14 and equality of opportunity .ttifogging bureaucratic welfare systems such as Ontario Works actively discourage employment, entrap people in poverty and build no bridges out of poverty. T11he pilot project was testing an approach that treated those below the poverty line with respect, as human beings who can manage their own lives. It provided an automatic top-up from 45 per cent of the poverty line to 75 per cent with real incentive to work. This mirrors the Davis-era 1975 Guaranteed Annual Income Supplement for seniors (GAINS). It had bipartisan support and was then adopted nationwide. It slashed the poverty rate among seniors to less than 5 per cent from 35 per cent.Looking at the cost of the pilot project is fair enough – but frankly, simplistic. We know that poverty is a perfect predictor of poor health and early hospitalization, bad educational outcomes, substance abuse and problems with the police – all of which cost Ontario billions. The vast majority of the guests of Her Majesty in our prisons come from 

There are 10 % of our fellow Ontarians’, live below the poverty line. So if the pilot had revealed that health-care usage was diminished, wellness improved, workplace participation increased, educational achievement enhanced and policing challenges diluted, how much would that have been worth? Do the Ford Nation conservatives even care to find out?The Premier’s laudable goal to reduce “corridor medicine” would benefit from fewer people anthologies of poverty showing up

Ford/PC, Government actions are all so boringly predictable that no one should be surprised. Conservative agendas persist in pursuing failed economic policies like “austerity”, trickle-down economics and laissez faire attitudes toward the psycho-sociopath corporate world…. Add to that the horrifically intolerant/bullying messages springing up under Conservative parties that demonize the already un-privileged elements of society and the equally punitive and utter failure of the “law & order” doctrine

Ford-land his ilk are perfectly prepared to return to the Dickensian atrocities respecting social welfare that have never really disappeared despite 150 years of ostensible “reforms”. The most morally reprehensible actions involve throwing vulnerable children once again to the human wolves who prey on

them, and throwing away any pretense of trying to preserve a live able environment. Humanity is a scourge on the earth. The maniacal, ego driven minds of people like Mr. Ford, Mr. Kenny et al are its Pied Pipers – those who vote for them will pay the piper – unfortunately so will those who do not believe their nonsense..He’s Lunatic Man

YIKES

The. worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn’t know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, but it all depends on political decisions. It is the power of government we all look for either to thank or blame. The political illiterate are elected. Our right to vote put them in office.
hame on you! . Donald Trump; A Pathological Hypocrite; spends LM his life cheating, betraying, conning, and deceiving. … If the moral scales in his life seem to be skewed beyond all recognition, you like him a pathological hypocrite—or this strikes you as an unlikely political slogan, take a look around. Plagued by deep cynicism and a profound mistrust of institutions, voters seem increasingly ready to place their confidence in the hands of a very specific sort of leader: the wealthy.

RUN! OLD SCHOOL CONSERVATISM ISN’T EXTINCT
