Conscious people that are anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-war, anti-bigotry, anti-GMO, anti-globalism, you either get tired suffering, etc or you FORM YOUR OWN EVERYTHING.
In the case of the Black/African community, Since the black community refuses to get her own (or increase funding for) black empowerment supporters that are, District Attorneys, own community and national courts, courts, law enforcement, schools, medical examiners, medics, ambulances, NGOs like the red cross/red crescent, hospital systems, archaeologists, research institutions, etc, nothing surprises me about how she is treated. Yes it often annoys me, and stresses me out, but at this point, black community we either grow up or DIG MORE GRAVES.
John Carosella hosts Convergence, a journey into shamanism, science, and mysticism, exploring our beautiful world. Making the mystical accessible to the scientific-minded, and bringing the language of science to the Mystery, John brings provocative, new perspectives to living, learning, healing, and discovery.
In today's program, John is in Spirited Conversation with Kimberly Walters, a doctoral candidate at the Univeristy of Chicago and faculty member at University of California, Irvine. Kimberly has done ethnographic studies in Southern India, investigating the cultural interplay between sex workers and the NGOs seeking to "rescue" them. The facts on the ground belie easy conclusions, and what seems like freedom might be exploitation of a different kind.
In his Reflections segment, John shares his encounter with Fly Medicine - an uncomfortable but ultimately healing journey into powerful and ubiquitous support that we ignore at our own risk, finding within it a tool for addressing old, deep, and stubborn wounds.
John is also joined by his co-hosts HiC Luttmers and Mildred Lynn McDonald in a Firefly Willows L*I*V*E! roundtable about games, inspired by Jane McGonigals potent TED talks.
Join us for Convergence on Firefly Willows L*I*V*E!

Ted Broer: He's shared the stage with many celebrities, politicians and world leaders, from Bill Cosby to George Bush and many in between. He's seen the inner workings of the Globalist agenda, and knows where the proverbial bodies are buried. He knows GMOs from NGOs, and exposes them all. "Medical Martial Law" is coming. So is Martial Law.
Join us as we discuss what we might expect in the near term in the U.S. and all across the West, from the planned destruction of America from within to methods we must employ to stay safe and "out of the way" of what's coming. Personal health and preparation is required in order to survive what lies ahead. We must have a workable understanding of the enemy's playbook and a personal as well as a collective plan to fight against "the beast." Knowledge of current events and the news that is censored from our everyday lives will assist in understanding the events we see taking place today, from the operational plans of Jade Helm 15 to the renewal of the PATRIOT ACT.

What are these issues and what is behind them?
Climate change, it is now shoved in our faces.
NGOs, are they really what they say they are?
Republicans, Democrats, and the new populism.
Critical issues are what we need to be focusing on. It is time to leave those behind who have not seen the ball since the kickoff.
Marsha Winsryg may have gone to Africa to site see and look at local culture but when that culture reached out to her as an artist and teacher, something happened. She was asked by local artisans to take their wares back to the USA and sell them, which she did. However, as she really looked around she saw a need , a humanitarian need especially among children, that was created by the cultural devastation that was a looming as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis. In Zambia, one out of three people are HIV positive and everyone has lost family members. Most adults are caring for orphans as well as their own children in an economy that barely sustains a subsistence lifestyle.
As a response to her question, "What can I DO?" , Marsha founded The African Artisans Community Development Project—AACDP—provides economic opportunity for Zambian artisans while generating cash support for local Zambian NGOs treating children who have been orphaned or disabled as a result of the HIV/AIDS crisis.
Their method is simple and cost-effective. Thet buy Zambian crafts from local artisans at full market rate for Africa; sell the crafts back n the United States at American rates; and then send the profits back to Zambian schools and clinics providing services to children.

Make It Happen is the 2015 theme for our internationalwomensday.com global hub, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women.
Each year International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women's Day was held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women's groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.
Various organisations identify their own International Women's Day theme, specific to their local context and interests. Many charities, NGOs and Governments also adopt a relevant theme or campaign to mark the day. For example, organisations like the UN, Oxfam, Women for Women, Care International, Plan, World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and more - run exciting and powerful campaigns that raise awareness and encourage donations for good causes. The UN has been declaring an annual equality theme for many years.

The White House says a terrorist is not a radical Islamist. Do you agree? If you were a Muslim, how would you feel about having your life reduced to being a reflection of the actions of those who would choose to do evil in the name of religion. How do the actions of Kouchi borthers, or the Tsarnaevs, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda and other extremists affect those who peacefully follow an ages old religion?
