Hoy os enseñamos uno de los secretos que nos fuimos encontrando. Al picar las paredes, empezaron a salir cámaras en todas partes...
Nuestra sorpresa fué que saliese antiguo chapado tras una de las paredes... ¿desde cuándo había estado ahí?
Nos decidimos a dejarlo todo limpio, ya que íbamos a impermeabilizar la casa entera (el padre de Xenia mejor dicho)
Al empezar a limpiar... SORPRESA!!! Lo encontraréis al final del vídeo, y un avance, la actual pared del baño de la planta baja, conserva esas formas!!!
En el próximo post, os mostramos “la joya de la corona de las sorpresas” y la parte que más nos gusta!!!
#XONR8Rs like UCSD Professor Gary Fields, who invited us to speak to his class, allow us to educate young people about wrongful convictions and our work! Thanks to Professor Fields for having us, and to your students — who are all #XONR8Rs too — for being so eager to learn about exoneree Kimberly Long. ⠀
feeling so damn grateful to have a standing home ready and willing to take in those displaced
in moments like this you realize more than ever what is really important
you can’t buy love, safety & community
people coming together to support one another and the immense amount of respect everyone’s shown for our first responders has been so special
we all need more unity
let’s all make more of an effort to come together - we need one another to help remedy global disasters.
Big congrats to Brittany for joining the #100club this morning! 💯💪🏼 This girl seriously crushes every class she’s in! She works so hard and always has the biggest smile! We’re so lucky to have you at our barre, Brittany! We ❤️ you! #100strong
Raymond Tempest was convicted of second-degree murder in 1992. His conviction was reversed, but prosecutors planned to retry him despite having no credible evidence against him. Rather than face a new trial, Tempest accepted an Alford plea in exchange for his freedom. This innocent man now has a criminal record for life because of the #GuiltyPleaProblem .
As we give honor to our Veterans today. We are reminded that so many sacrificed for our safety and freedoms. Thank you!
Unfortunately, we are also disturbed by the all too frequent occurrence of gun violence on an individual level and en mass.
The approach is a tiered resolution.
1) We must have thorough background checks to determine if the applicant has ever been charged with assault, battery, or domestic (or any other type of) violence.
2) Mental health check.
3) Character references (one close family member, one friend who has known the applicant for at least 3 years. And, one reference from a trusted, verifiable source, e.g., co-worker, minister, your doctor, etc.).
4) All new firearms must have fingerprint recognition installed at the time of purchase. All existing firearms must be equipped with the fingerprint technology within 18 months of notice or enactment of legislation. Whichever is later.
5) Alternatively, gun owner's can surrender their firearm(s) and can receive a tax credit per firearm surrendered. Also, for those who have a firearm illegally, can surrender their firearm for a predetermined flat dollar amount with no questions asked.
6) Mandated Social Studies class focusing on the following topics: Gun education, conflict resolution, ethics and equality, and sexual harassment will be taught each year, starting at the 8th grade level through 12th.
New ballet skirt. I made it with my mom's old dress.
Also, I'm planning to make some ballet warmers to protect my leg from winter.
Apparently warmers help my body not only stay warm but also prevent injury.
Anyway, I'm happy to have my own handmade wrap skirt.
I wasn't really happy in any of these pictures.
My high school was a liberal, pluralistic, Jewish school in San Fransisco. They openly support LGBTQ, where more than half my teachers were gay or transgender, (which i find positive btw), and they would bring in murders & ex-prostitutes to come speak at the school to “hear the other side.”
My Jewish school taught a class on “why the torah is NOT true” where my 2 remaining religious friends, took the course, only to come out of it no longer keeping shabbat.
I think giving different perspectives and allowing for everyone to feel comfortable is a positive thing. And when I first became religious I expected the openness, flexibility, and accommodation to extend to me.
But it didn’t.
When it came to religious judaism, for some reason, friends & teachers, did not treat me or the topic with the same respect (would love to hear why you guys think that is the case). My open-orthodox rabbi would actually make fun of me, purposefully not answer my questions, & tell me i’m “brainwashed.” On the other hand though, the reform rabbi would always tell me how he was upset at his reform temple for not being as religious as they should. “We are having a BBQ this week, and they bought non-kosher meat! That’t so not okay right, Ariel!?” My school changed the bathrooms to gender neutral, but we had non-kosher food at events. My friends openly stated that the Israeli Army soldiers are murderers, and that was OK, but when I said, “God gave us the Torah” I was suddenly “imposing my beliefs on others.” I thought that my class trip to Israel later that year would allow my friends to see where all of this came from, or at least to be more sensitive. I spent the year on their territory, in a their world, and now they were finally coming Home to “mine.” I thought it would work… but i’m not even gonna leave it on a cliffhanger this time cause it really didn’t lol, stay tuned for the next post for deets.
Thanks to the Veterans for their sacrifice and service to our beautiful Country! While most places are observing the holiday today, we have our normal hours for your ticking pleasure! Come get your sweat on! 💪🏼🇺🇸
***DND news (part 2)***ACT 790...called geriatric parole was created for those convicted of crimes such as armed robbery, first degree robbery, manslaughter....crimes whose sentences only allowed a set amount of years. Legislators foresaw an approaching problem with prison overcrowding due to certain crimes that didn't allow for any parole. Such as, a 99year sentence for armed robbery. Armed robbery(sentencing range 10 to 99 years)being a crime that pretty much mirrored a life sentence made no sense to legislators and the creation of ACT 790 made available an option for consideration in determining if a person serving 99 years could be released through parole if he demonstrates rehabilitation. So a new law was put in place and this began the era of what is called in Louisiana the "20/45". Let's look at the foundation that sets the stage in defining who qualifies for this parole consideration. And this consideration doesn't mean release from prison but given the opportunity to appear before a handpicked parole board of people with criminal justice backgrounds who will assess if a candidate before the board can be released on supervised parole.
....."a person committed to the Department of Public Safety and Corrections for a term or terms of imprisonment with or without benefit of parole for 30 years or more shall be eligible for parole consideration upon serving at least 20 years of the term or terms of imprisonment in actual custody and upon reaching the age of 45. This provision shall not apply to a person serving a life sentence unless the sentence has been commuted to a fixed term of years. R.S. 15:574.4(A)(2)....this is the way the statute read prior to August 15, 2008. Any one convicted of armed robbery from Jan. 1, 1997 to Aug. 15, 2008 are eligible for parole consideration.
I pray for her and the calling God has placed on her life. Losing my child changed my life in ways I could never imagine and forced me to see how many things are truly important that I overlooked. I remember asking myself “would my daughter be proud of me” and knowing that she wouldn’t because I was nothing but a drug dealer who hurt people and destroyed homes by selling drugs to parents and putting drugs in children’s hands for them to resell. My daughter forced me to become a better man and to walk in my calling because I wanted to honor her. Children have a way or making us become the people God created us to be because looking at them is like looking at a mirror that reflects your soul instead of the things you’ve been taught to see by society when you judge yourself. My daughter’s death made me look at my actions instead of my money and really think about how being my daughter would make her feel.
Our country needs change. Our youth need people who really care about them. Minority children need to be seen as humans instead of niggas who were brought here to be used to create the country other people wanted. I pray she is able to use her position, influence and power to advocate and create the changes our youth need because we have lost too many lives and futures. #mcbath#youth#empowerment#opportunity#change#hope#purpose#blackboysrock#blackboys#blackgirls#poverty#education#reform#congress#congresswoman#congressmanmcbath#makingthetransition @lucywins2018
“Amendment 4 asked voters to restore the voting rights of people with past felony convictions. In a key ballot initiative, Florida will restore voting rights to citizens convicted of certain felonies after they have served their sentences, including prison terms, parole and probationary periods, AP has projected.” -NPR
On January 8th, this right will be fully enforced and any convicted felon in Florida that has served their sentence will re-gain the right to vote.
