It’s sad that Bitcoin mining at its current rate will likely

It’s sad that Bitcoin mining at its current rate will likely cause more environmental damage than 3/4 of the world’s countries power consumption combined.
Only 1 Bitcoin mining operation: « The total energy use of this web of hardware is huge - an estimated 31 terawatt-hours per year. More than 150 individual countries in the world consume less energy annually. And that power-hungry network is currently increasing its energy use every day by about 450 gigawatt-hours, roughly the same amount of electricity the entire country of Haiti uses in a year. » If you want to know about fashion and beauty logos then click this link  social-landscape.com

The splash and dash of the Holiday Season brings increased focus to scent, form and color

The splash and dash of the Holiday Season brings increased focus to scent, form and color. This permeates the immediate environment in which we live, the way we perceive and relate to our surroundings. A walk down a fanciful decorated street or entrance into a home of a friend or stranger who has an individual fancy or relationship to setting a holiday mood can be a worthwhile new experience never before seen. Such personal experiences are justifiable reminders of scent, color and form’s ability to transform and add to the colorful pageantry of the Xmas celebration, expressive tools in the hands of others.

Depuis un an, je fais des dons et du bénévolat au Refuge RR

Depuis un an, je fais des dons et du bénévolat au Refuge RR. Toutes les fois où j’y suis allée, j’ai constaté à quel point les animaux qui s'y trouvent, rescapés d’une vie souvent misérable, semblaient heureux de cette deuxième chance. Je me suis jurée de faire tout en mon pouvoir pour aider à la survie de ce refuge.
Ce dimanche 28 janvier, Pascal-Hugo C.Cantin et moi allons participer à un événement chez Herbivores, marché végétalien, visant à amasser des fonds pour le Refuge. Venez goûter à la nourriture végane en dégustation, parler avec des représentants du Refuge RR et participer à un Q&A avec PH et moi où nous tenterons de répondre à vos questions sur le véganisme dans un contexte ludique et intime.
Les billets, vendus au coût de 15$, sont disponibles sur la page Facebook de l’événement. Venez nous voir et nous parler, il nous fera plaisir de tous vous rencontrer!

The power of video! This is from 1979 when AEP Ohio moved their headquarters from New York to Columbus to help their employees learn about the city they would move to.
In the video, you can see Hotel LeVeque, Autograph Collection, Ohio Village, COSI Columbus' Dynamic Hands-On Science Center!, Ohio Stadium, The Ohio State University, Ohio Theatre, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and more!
At Aftermarq, this is exactly the type of video we want to help Columbus based companies deliver to their employees and customers, with a modern twist, of course!

Brother Elih Lizama, special blessings to you and your family during this sacred and heart breaking time of mourning

Brother Elih Lizama, special blessings to you and your family during this sacred and heart breaking time of mourning. You all are so loved by many. I’ll put out water and tobacco for your little one.
truly there are no words...

Watching Akicita is beautiful and heart breaking

Watching Akicita is beautiful and heart breaking. So much learning, I feel like this is some of the receipts from Camp coming to light but some of the things that I really hope people learn from this film and bring in to other movements:
Due to social media and press, some of the people that are identifiable as leaders are in fact just public speakers, and there is a difference
I think we don’t have the luxury to let our low opinions of ourselves make us step aside and let fools control our Narrative. We cannot let ourselves be stopped anymore. Our actual leaders need to stay stepping up.
Bravery, just like fear, is contagious.

“I do not want to be held in contempt of court

“I do not want to be held in contempt of court. I don’t wanna be fined. I don’t want to go to jail for this,” says Ka’eo, “But if there’s any reason for me, Kaleikoa Ka’eo, to go to jail, it would be to defend our right as a people to speak our language in our own homeland.”

So billionaire Vince McMahon of 'pro' wrestling fame wants to reboot his football league the XFL

So billionaire Vince McMahon of 'pro' wrestling fame wants to reboot his football league the XFL... He and his team have a game plan that will allow them to go after the NFL but at the same time not compete with them head to head..
For example, they will have teams in thriving markets that don't have or have lost NFL teams..Hence cities like Oakland, San Antonio, Louisville and Memphis are on the list
They will aggressively be going after top tier college players and offer them comparable contracts.. They will hold their games over the summer, from June til the end of August to avoid having to go up against the NFL..
They will also be going after free agents who have not got signed and players who have a few years left in the tank but are no longer in the NFL..
They also will be getting colorful, over the top bombastic commentators to broadcast the games..many will be in the line of personalities like Michael Savage or Bill O'reilly.. conservative.. angry and down to push buttons
They hope to partner with Silicon Valley tech and media firms that will need content and this will run the games on their platform.. They are borrowing a page from ESPN who own the X Games which is its biggest money maker.. They show the games but also control and own the games.. So perhaps Amazon, Apple, Google etc may buy in..
Vince McMahon's strategy seems like it will work especially since they appear to have a market that want to tap into.. Angry, disgruntled football fans ...The kicker to all this and what appears to be the obvious motivation for revitalizing the league is to institute a strict policy to control their players..
Their number one rule will players will NOT be allowed to protest and MUST stand for the national anthem.. Anyone protesting and not standing for the anthem will be fired on the spot.. Yep you read that right...
The desire to control, contain and ultimately put rich, uppity athletic Negroes in their place and make them subservient is such a yearning that folks like McMahon are willing to go all out, and spend lots of money just to control. Talk about having a God Complex..
So unless Colin Kaepernick intends to stand and sing the National Anthem its unlikely he will be this league.. Anyway this too shall pass and my boycott of the NFL will extend to XFL...And remember when Diddy was talking about buying teams and even starting his own league, y'all laughed and said it couldnt be done.. anyway Carry on and have great day..

We interviewed longtime journalist Tim Redmond of 48 Hills about the drama that unfolded last night at City Hall when SF Board of Supervisor's President London Breed was removed as acting Mayor and replaced with a right wing venture capitalist who has been hostile to Black and Brown interests in SF... There's a lot of moving parts to this scenario. Here's what we discussed..

Thanks to Glen Hiemstra for posting

Thanks to Glen Hiemstra for posting ... Plastic straws seems like low-hanging fruit. Let's grab THAT and then go further. I'm still astounded, for ex., not to have seen any major story yet on how many plastic water bottles Coca Cola has profited by, since TSA disallowed water through the conveyor belts and CC got the contract (CC owns Dasani at minimum). And I'm still annoyed with smart people who don't bring their own petroleum-made empty water bottles to at least refill on the other side instead of buying a new one every time they travel. Apologies for the side-track ... There are some amazing notes in this short flick about what a difference is made just by businesses not automatically offering plastic straws. #proudofseattle.

Thoughts on the ouster of London Breed as interim Mayor in SF?? They said she had 'too much power' and hence progressive white men

Thoughts on the ouster of London Breed as interim Mayor in SF?? They said she had 'too much power' and hence progressive white men.. pushed for her to be ousted and replaced by venture capitalist... I don't know the politics of Mark Farrell.. Is he really progressive? How does that stack up to London? And how does either of them stack up when it comes to Black and Brown folks in SF..
Also with respect to key role women and Black women in particular have been playing with respect to elections, what will the reaction be? Will women line up behind Breed? Will organizations like Emerge see this as an afront.? Will Black women see this as bad move? Will this drive a further wedge between Black folks and progressives? seems like some interesting fault lines

Worthy investment, Mr

Worthy investment, Mr. Bezos! The work that Alan Miller, Walt Mossberg, Karen Wickre, etc, are doing absolutely essential work at The News Literacy Project to help with news literacy. Essential for creating good citizens, essential for our democracy. Roopa and I made a slightly more modest contribution.
