One of the scariest announcements to date.

The entire city of Fort McMurray has been evacuated. The only highway gas been gridlocked as the flames line it. Cars have been abandoned as they run out of gas.

The 14 Defining Characteristics Of Fascism

My friend +Korinne M Jackman  sent me this link and I have to say, USA, you're looking pretty close to getting a perfect score 14/14. It is NOT a long read but here is the list form.


1-Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – ( constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, etc)
2-Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – (human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." )
3-Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
4-Supremacy of the Military (excessive govt funding)
5-Rampant Sexism – (Divorce, abortion & homosexuality are suppressed)
6- Controlled Mass Media
7- Obsession with National Security
8- Corporate Power is Protected
9- Religion and Government are Intertwined
10- Labor Power is Suppressed
11- Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
12- Obsession with Crime and Punishment
13- Rampant Cronyism and Corruption –
14- Fraudulent Elections
Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each: 1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make ...

"BIG GARBAgE WEEK" is a huge thing where I live. We can't put large items out all year long (like some places) . But in the month of May , there is "Big garbage pick up" when people put out stoves and doors and desks and piles of scrap and broken things. ALSO they put out good things! For instance I put out 2 chairs, a computer chair, a decorative rug and they have all been picked up by "pickers" well before they hit a landfill. It is a way to pass on items- as well as get rid of broken things. Many people scour for bikes, desks, dressers, antiques- you name it. It is very much a part of the culture here- but it looks HIDEOUS! Also the poorest areas seem to have the most garbage / junk and the whole street looks like a scrap yard.
Heavy garbage pickup has become a rite of spring in the Cape Breton Regional Municipality and so has the accompanying ritual of "picking."

A smart, powerful essay, well worth the read. ABout depression, advice-giving, and being present for others 
A helpful word can be a salve, but it's not always what we need. Parker Palmer on the power of quiet, unobtrusive presence to heal in troubled times.

The wildfires in Fort McMurray, ALberta,, are raging, doubling in size overnight and passed through 12 communities. The highway is at a snail's pace as people try to evacuate and the fires are on the sides of the main highway 63 and have entered the city xone, and leaping the highways! The hospital is being evacuated. This is horrible and frightening. There are people reporting they had to run from their homes, even abandon their cars. Others in Edmonton and areas are posting on FB for safe places to stay. The videos are terrifying.
The wildfire situation has escalated in and around Fort McMurray, and many people are posting pictures and video as they flee the northern Alberta city.

Another reason to love Canadians! We received our census cards in the mail this week (yesterday mostly) and so many people logged on to do their survey the site crashed! lol

One of the promises the new LIberal government made was to bring the "long census" back. We are civic minded, if nothing else.
 
On Monday, Statistics Canada began mailing out access codes to Canadians to complete the 2016 census online on May 10. But for some eager citizens, one week was just too long to wait.

WRITERS! Here's something interesting to try; accepted submissions are paid. It's a great creative challenge! 

And if you want more places to submit your writing, or writing contests, follow +Literally Literary  
 
Have you heard of "hybrid-essays"? It is when you write a reflective or personal essay on a subject using a structure or form from some other literary form, such as a recipe or an obituary, a clock, deck of cards etc. It sounds like a great writing challenge that could produce some marvelous results. If you care to try,. here are the submission guidelines for "The Shell Game" who is accepting submissions at this time and paying,

"The Psoas Muscle, is a long muscle located on the side of the lumbar region of the vertebral column and brim of the pelvis, that is also known as the “muscle of the soul”. It is one of the largest muscles in the body and it is a place where we often store stress or trauma that can literally influence our mood and our outlook on life.
There is one muscle in the body that often stores trauma. Here's how to joyfully release the Stress.
