          Tattoos: A Body Modification or Expression?      Cache   Translate Page      

In today's society people with piercings and tattoos have been seen at a negative perspective. Individuals are judged with the stereotype that piercings and tattoos portray. Yes tattoos do define who an individual is, but, this includes their stories, what they believe in etc.. Not all tattoos make someone a bad person.

"The Tattooed Doctor." Neatorama. Purch, 23 Sept. 2007. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 

We begin with the idea of approach. If you cannot approach someone how are you suppose to trust them. Someone we put a lot of our trust into is our doctors. They have our lives in their hands. A recent article explained that tattoos are becoming less problematic in workplaces. Philadelphia's ZB Sports commented, "If I'd pass on [an individual] because of their tattoos, I'd be out a phenomenal employee" (Forbes, 2014). The picture on your left shows a man who is in two positions. The attitude is shown within his stance as the image on the far left shows a concerning doctor that is willing to be of help: Verses the same man on the right slouched forward holding his belt. This demonstrates that even though this is the same man because of his tattoos he is seen as unapproachable. The irony is the photo itself: It is the exact same man but the only exception is his tattoos, would you not let him treat your health because of that?

"Tattooed Teacher." Nkeiruka Sylvanus. Nkeiruka Sylvanus, 23 Nov. 2014. Web. 12 
     Jan. 2015. <>. 
To continue we are brought to the virtues of acceptance, sympathy,compassion and tolerance. The picture on your right is a teacher-in-training that went viral through social media and was in the newspaper. The question that was asked was, “Would you let this woman teach your child?” (Daily Mail, 2014). The actions that were thrown at Charlotte Tumilty, age 26, were not the virtues stated previous. Instead they were the complete opposite. She was asked to cover all of her tattoos as the school did not want "kiddies getting encouraging signals about inking themselves at such a tender age" stated a teacher from the school in Hartlepool. The real question is why would you not if she was certified for the job: As stated above, if you did not hire someone based on their tatoos and appearance you would be out a phenomenal employee. The picture on the upper left portrays conflict, a struggle between opposing forces, the stereotype tattoos bring and a teacher. The attitude within the Charlotte’s face is surprise. Why would someone deny her ability just because of her appearance?

"Veteran." Media NCB. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
Furthermore, people respect Veterans and thank them for their service: Would you deny the service he has done because of tattoos? Of course not.The tattoos shown on this Veteran are not to make him look "bad ass" or "hardcore", instead their stories, they are his stories. The symbolism within this picture is his bare chest. He has been torn apart and stripped from the war, although he may have come home to a family he is left with nothing but his memories. Haunting memories, studies have shown that 20% of all Iraq soldiers suffer from PTSD, and 50% of them do not seek help. If you are going to give a Veteran a judgmental stereotype it should be "bad ass" and "hardcore" but not because of the tattoos on his body because of his bravery. His tattoos should have nothing to do with what he is capable of, instead they're the only thing keeping him and his stories sane.

"Angelina Jolie." Fan Pop s. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 

Finally we touch the topic of Angelina Jolie who portrays a vain, egotistic person on the left photo in the collage. She makes millions of dollars and spends it on stupid things like tattoos right? Wait is that the same woman who has won the humanitarian award several times? Beat Breast Cancer? Adopted Children and looks after her own? Is a loving loyal wife? Visits places all around the world taking care of helpless children? It can't be! But as matter of a fact is it. Jolie's tattoos are not meaningless, as a matter of a fact she has 17 and each one has a special meaning - this also relates back to the Vets tattoos and his stories. The one on her shoulder is the longitude and latitude of each location her children and adopted children were born. She has a huge one on her back that she got done in Thailand to express her involvement with not only her child from Cambodia but also Cambodia itself. When asked about her tattoos, Jolie said, "Usually all my tattoos came at good times. A tattoo is something permanent when you've made a self discovery or something you've come to a conclusion about" (USA Today Interview, July 17, 2003). The real Angelina Jolie is shown within the right side of the collage, a loving mother for her five children, and a loving humanitarian who cares for many children around the world. Her tattoos do not make her vain and egotistic, she has depth, she shows meaning throughout her body.

In conclusion, all 4 images prove that the negative attitude towards tattoos and piercings are inaccurate. Each image includes a public figure that is thought of highly. Tattoos do not define who a person is as they are just expressing themselves through a piece of art. This piece of art should not be looked at negatively and be able to destroy what that person is capable of.

          Man tweets that his dad's new donut shop has no customers, response is overwhelmimg      Cache   Translate Page      

"My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop 😭," tweeted the son of the proprietor of Billy's Donuts in Missouri City, Texas. The brilliant marketing move resulted in a sell-out of donuts and kolaches.

From Houstonia:

By Sunday afternoon his tweet was retweeted more than 150,000 times. By Monday morning? More than 260,000 times. To put that in perspective, the 30th most retweeted tweet in Twitter history (by South Korean boy band BTS) has about 630,000 retweets.


On Monday morning, Billy was being interviewed by other local news stations and working on a potential CNN spot, while representatives from Twitter were on hand greeting customers. Yes, Twitter. They bought out the store for the morning, meaning everyone’s order was on them. (Representatives wouldn’t comment on the record about their presence at the shop.) And while Billy played gracious host, Satharith kept busy in the back, and an aunt worked the cash register. It all seemed surreal that within 48 hours, this family-owned Cambodian donut shop in Missouri City had become something of an epicenter of social media

          How It All Started      Cache   Translate Page      

"The object of life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting holy shit, what a ride" - Mavis Leyrer

A few people have asked us how we came up with the idea of cycling to Australia.

We were both regular cyclists during our younger years but never did anything extreme. When travelling in Cambodia in 2003 we hired some bicycles to explore the ruins of Angkor Wat for a few days. This gave us our first taste of bicycle travel in a foreign land. We were instantly taken by the freedom: we could go anywhere we pleased and we found the local kids got a real buzz out of a couple of foreigners on bikes, it helped bridge the divide.||

Still we never thought about doing serious bicycle travel; we assumed that was reserved for the super fit. That was until Guy read a book by an elderly English lady called Anne Mustoe. She couldn't repair a puncture, wasn't into sports, didn't even like camping but she cycled around the world, twice!

The more he thought about it the more Guy loved the idea of cycling from the UK to Australia. After all, we had seen these intriguing lands many times from the perspective of an aeroplane and it must be much more exciting to explore them on a bicycle. Freddie was not so sure, it was a long way and we had never cycled for two consecutive days let alone half way around the world.

To try to convince Freddie that cycling to Oz was a sensible thing to do we tested ourselves in an area that would challenge us and test our resolve to the utmost: Provence, in southern France.

After a week of swanning around sun drenched vineyards and staying in cosy B&B's Freddie declared she was ready for the world of cycle touring.

We started to make preparations for the trip, drew lines on maps, spent hours at book shops reading up on travel guides and purchased items we never knew existed like a Spondonicle and a Spork. Our first real, put your money where your mouth is moment was when we purchased our touring bikes. We had always had second hand bikes before and though they were the bee's knees, that was until we felt the ride on our brand new beautiful Thorn Raven touring bikes.

We couldn't wait for them to be delivered so we travelled for half a day to go pick them up. We cycled 180km back home over three days in pouring rain following muddy canal paths, and we loved it. Sure the cycling was miserable but we really felt the joy of being out in the open country and travelling at a pace where we could see the detail in the world around us.

As the deliveries trickled in and our little London flat began to resemble an outdoor shop we thought we should perhaps challenge ourselves and see if we could hack more than a week on the road.

Having lived in the UK we thought a trip from Lands End in the south to John O’Groats in the North was the way to go. So we booked off the holiday time and set about our first real biking challenge. It hurt, the days were long, we barely stopped, the scenary was beautiful but we had little time to appreciate it. We completed the ride but it nearly killed us, we were out of our comfort zone too often. Touring on a tight schedule was not for us. We liked to get up late and have a lazy breakfast. We liked to talk to the farmers in the fields or assist a wayward caterpillar in crossing the road. We weren't in it for just a challenge. We were in it for the way of life, the adventure, and the discoveries along the way.

Understanding this enabled us to devise a ride back home that factored in plenty of time with manageable daily distances. As the day approached we couldn't really comprehend what we were about to do. We fluctuated between bouts of optimism to serious doubts and sleepless nights. Nonetheless we had let word slip about our adventure and we weren't brave enough now to pull out. So we got on our bikes and started pedalling our way to Australia and along the way had the most incredible experience of our lives...

In two weeks, 39-year-old Rottanak Kong will board a plane to Cambodia. He'll be accompanied by dozens of other Cambodians with deportation orders. Kong — along with many in his situation — has not returned to Cambodia since his family left as a refugees. They fled the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, which killed more than two million people. He was detained by U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement in mid-October. More than a decade ago, he was arrested for joyriding and sentenced to a year in prison, according to his lawyer. Because of that arrest, he is being deported. "There's a flaw in our system," said Chen Kong-Wick, his sister. "How can you deport someone that came here as a political asylum — as a refugee — and now they're being sent to a country that they know nothing of?" More than 70 Cambodians who have been detained by ICE will be sent to Cambodia soon, according to immigration advocates.

WE Act aims to harness the unbounded entrepreneurial potential of Cambodia’s young businesswomen and help them find partnerships, provide key resources, and strategic advice. These and other tools will help them grow their businesses and engage with associations that can help magnify the voices of women entrepreneurs in civic life and channel their interests in the policy arena.

This project reflects a global strategy. USAID has funded similar entrepreneur-strengthening projects with great success in many countries and regions around the world. Our efforts have concentrated on strengthening the eco-system for female entrepreneurs, from reforming the policy framework to allow women to compete on equal footing with their male counterparts, to providing access to finance and venture capital.  It includes mentoring and coaching by businessmen and women, integration with business associations, business incubation, and a host of other elements.

The goals of reducing gender inequality and promoting women's rights have been a priority of USAID and our partners – governments, donors, and civil society – for a long time. But despite the considerable investment so far to advance social justice and gender equality, women continue to be underrepresented in decision making bodies, not only in the private sector, at the local level and in civil society, but in the politics and government as well. The barriers that prevent women from effectively participating in civic life remain an issue for Cambodian women, who are often excluded from the more traditionally male-dominated spheres of political decision-making.

          Sodomy Laws in the US and around the World      Cache   Translate Page      
A sodomy law is a law that defines certain sexual acts as crimes. The precise sexual acts meant by the term sodomy are rarely spelled out in the law, but are typically understood by courts to include any sexual act deemed to be "unnatural" or immoral. Sodomy typically includes anal sex, oral sex and bestiality. In practice, sodomy laws have rarely been enforced against heterosexual couples (Wikipedia)

Sodomy arrest sparks controversy… 34 years ago

Michael Hardwick is arrested for sodomy after a police officer observes him having sex with another man in his own bedroom in Georgia. Although the district attorney eventually dropped the charges, Hardwick decided to challenge the constitutionality of Georgia’s law.

“John and Mary Doe,” who joined in Hardwick’s suit against Michael Bowers, the attorney general of Georgia, maintained that the Georgia law “chilled and deterred” them from engaging in certain types of sex in their home. But in 1986, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in Bowers v. Hardwick, ruling by a 5-4 vote that states could continue to treat certain types of consensual sex as criminal acts.

Apparently, Justice Byron White had characterized the issue not as the right to privacy in one’s own bedroom, but rather as the right to commit sodomy. Viewed in this narrow manner, it was no surprise that he was unable to find such a clause in the Constitution. Justice Lewis Powell, who also voted to uphold the law, later called his vote a mistake.

In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a Texas law under which two men had been arrested for having consensual sex at home. The 6-3 Lawrence v. Texas decision reversed the infamous 1986 Bowers decision and finally dealt a death blow to sodomy laws throughout the country.

In its landmark ruling Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court ruled that anti-sodomy laws —sometimes referred to as “crimes against nature” laws — are unconstitutional. But 12 states continue to keep such laws on their books. Of 14 states that had anti-sodomy laws, only Montana and Virginia have repealed theirs since the Supreme Court ruling, while anti-sodomy laws remain on the books in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.

You may believe anti-sodomy laws are not harmful because they can’t be enforced. But they are an important symbol of homophobia for those who oppose LGBT rights. What’s more, the laws create ambiguity for police officers, who may not be aware they are unconstitutional.

If a policeman looks it up, he will see that sodomy is a violation of Louisiana state law, for example, according to Marjorie Esman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana.

Sodomy Laws around the World

In the recent years, sodomy related laws have been repealed or judicially struck down in all of Europe, North America, and South America, except for Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago.

There have never been Western-style sodomy related laws in the People's Republic of China, Taiwan, North Korea, South Korea, or Vietnam. Additionally, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia were part of the French colony of 'Indochine'; so if there had been any laws against male homosexual acts in those countries, they would have been dismantled by French colonial authorities, since male homosexual acts have been legal in France and throughout the French Empire since the issuing of the aforementioned French Revolutionary penal code in 1791.

This trend among Western nations has not been followed in all other regions of the world (Africa, some parts of Asia, Oceania and even western countries in the Caribbean Islands), where sodomy often remains a serious crime. For example, male homosexual acts, at least in theory, can result in life imprisonment in Barbados and Guyana.

In Africa, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Mauritania, Sudan, and some parts of Nigeria and Somalia. Male and sometimes female homosexual acts are minor to major criminal offences in many other African countries; for example, life imprisonment is a prospective penalty in Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda. A notable exception is South Africa, where same-sex marriage is legal.

In Asia, male homosexual acts remain punishable by death in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Brunei, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; but anti-sodomy laws have been repealed in Israel (which recognizes but does not perform same-sex marriages), Japan, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, and Thailand. Additionally, life imprisonment is the formal penalty for male homosexual acts in Bangladesh, the Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, and Qatar.

          "Fighting Evil Is a Failed Strategy"      Cache   Translate Page      
"Fighting Evil Is a Failed Strategy"
by Paul Rosenberg

"Sure, there are rare situations where fighting evil humans is thrust upon us, but such situations are just that, rare. So, feel free to do what you must in that unlikely event, and let’s set the subject aside, as seductively theatric as it may be. This setting aside is important, because “fighting evil” in any kind of societal application is a demonstrably failed strategy.

Failures Left and Right: Today we’ll pick on the left to begin with, then switch to the right. The “fighting evil” strategy of the political left is socialism. It has gained a foothold among the young for three primary reasons:

1. They are too young to remember socialism in practice.
2. They are so poorly schooled that they don’t see any problem with it.
3. The people promoting socialism complain very well.

I’m not trying to be trite or insulting with these three points; they’re the actual reasons. Complaints about the way things are have a great deal of legitimacy, of course. Student loans are one of the more abusive schemes ever thrust upon a generation… deeply manipulative and deeply abusive. (I explain in some depth here.)

On top of that abuse, the truth is that the rich are becoming richer and the poor, poorer [1]. Bear in mind that these problem exist on the heels of a century of “fighting the rich.” Very clearly, the left’s “fighting evil” strategy didn’t work.

And it’s worth adding that while the complaints above are legitimate, invoking socialism to fight them has to be one of the most boneheaded strategies in human history. Not only has it not worked despite a century of massive efforts, but socialism has proven itself to be death incarnate [2]. The Soviet socialists killed tens of millions. The Chinese socialists killed many tens of millions. Cambodian socialists killed roughly a third of their populace in only a few years.

Socialism is a way for a few to live like kings, while the masses praising them die in huge numbers. Period.

Now, let’s pick on the right. I got an email recently, in which a friend shared a passage he’d read. It said, roughly, this: Through the late ’50s and early ’60s the US was essentially a live-and-let-live place, with Christian proclivities. This began to change when the Marxists began infiltrating our universities, reaching critical mass in the ’70s and ’80s. No reformation movement can succeed until we treat cultural Marxism like we treated the war on smallpox.

I responded that while there is some truth in the passage (I’ve addressed it previously), the prescription of treating it as “a war on…” is useless. While most people no longer remember, groups like the John Birch Society have been doing precisely this since the 1950s and even earlier. And despite all their “fighting evil” efforts… and even with its incredible crash and burn of the late 1980s… socialism still seduces.

And so, again, “fighting evil” got us more or less nowhere.

The Answer: If you want progress in the world – if you want people to live happier, freer, more satisfying lives – there is a very simple and effective answer: Start building it yourself.

Not only does this work, but it’s more or less the only thing that works. A lot of people don’t like the idea, because it requires effort and because they’ve been seduced by the big lie of democratic politics, which is this: If you can complain well enough, the machinery of the state will create what you want. And so, people who believe that complaining makes it so (a near-relative of wishing makes it so) are hesitant to build. After all, building is harder than complaining, and they might get into trouble. And so the politician who best pretends to care gets elected, and there’s no reason for anything to change. The politicians promise and the people believe, as the generations come and go. Ho hum.

So, if you want things to improve, roll up your sleeves and get busy. Cryptocurrencies, biohacking, 3D-printed housing, flying cars (scaled-up drones), automated agriculture, and many other improvements stand waiting for your efforts. In fact, we publish a monthly newsletter that teaches you how to get involved.

So, make a choice… and make it a good one."

[1] This is not the fault of capitalism (actual capitalism, that is) and it’s not the fault of money per se. It’s the fault of national economic systems that call themselves capitalist and which run the economies of the world.

[2] For what it’s worth, socialism was supposed to be a transition phase from capitalism to communism. A proper communist society would have no state per se. But please bear in mind that avowed communists can argue about these things for days on end.

          6 สมาชิก CNRP ขอลี้ภัยหลังถูกแจ้งยุยงปลุกปั่น ปราศรัยหนุนหัวหน้าพรรคกลับกัมพูชา      Cache   Translate Page      

สมาชิกพรรค CNRP อดีตฝ่ายค้านในสภากัมพูชา 6 รายขอลี้ภัยกับยูเอ็น หลังถูกตั้งข้อหายุยงปลุกปั้นและเจอหมายศาลเพราะปราศรัยในเชิงสนับสนุนให้สม รังสี หัวหน้าพรรค CNRP กลับประเทศมาต่อสู้กับพรรครัฐบาลหลังลี้ภัยการเมืองอยู่ในกรุงปารีส ที่ผ่านมาพรรครัฐบาล CPP นำโดยฮุนเซนเคยกลั่นแกล้งปราบปรามฝ่ายตรงข้ามทางการเมืองทั้งนักกิจกรรม นักการเมือง และสื่อ จนทำให้หลายคนลี้ภัยออกจากประเทศเพราะเรื่องนี้มาแล้ว

ภาพกรุงพนมเปญ (ที่มา:วิกิพีเดีย)

12 มี.ค. 2562 หนึ่งในสมาชิกพรรคการเมืองสงเคราะห์ชาติหรือซีเอ็นอาร์พี (CNRP) ของกัมพูชาเปิดเผยต่อสื่อเรดิโอฟรีเอเชียว่าสมาชิกพรรค 6 รายที่ลี้ภัยออกจากประเทศกัมพูชาได้ทำเรื่องขอลี้ภัยในประเทศอื่นแล้วหลังจากที่พวกเขาตกเป็นเป้าหมายการจับกุมของรัฐบาลที่นำโดยพรรคประชาชนกัมพูชา (CPP)

สมาชิกพรรค 6 รายนี้ถูกตั้งข้อหายุยงปลุกปั่นหลังจากที่ดำเนินการปราศรัยต่อหน้าสาธารณชนในช่วงเดือน ธ.ค. 2561 - ม.ค. 2562 การปราศรัยดังกล่าวมีเนื้อหาที่พูดเกี่ยวกับการสนับสนุนแผนการให้ สม รังสี หัวหน้าพรรคคนปัจจุบันของ CNRP ที่กำลังลี้ภัยทางการเมืองอยู่ในกรุงปารีสกลับมาต่อสู้กับการยึดกุมอำนาจของพรรค CPP  ที่เป็นรัฐบาล ทั้งนี้ยังมีคำสั่งจากรัฐบาลเรียกตัวสมาชิกพรรค 6 รายเข้ารับการไต่สวนในศาลเกี่ยวกับกรณีนี้

มาอร สราฐ ประธานฝ่ายการเมืองของ CNRP ที่ลี้ภัยอยู่ในประเทศไทยกล่าวว่าในตอนนี้ข้าหลวงใหญ่ผู้ลี้ภัยแห่งสหประชาชาติรับพิจารณาคำร้องขอลี้ภัยของสมาชิกพรรคเหล่านี้แล้ว โดยที่สมาชิกพรรคการเมืองที่ถูกตั้งข้อหาระบุว่ายังคงมีการกลั่นแกล้งจากรัฐบาลกัมพูชาถึงแม้ว่าประชาคมโลกได้เตือนให้พวกพรรครัฐบาลเลิกข่มเหงรังแกนักกิจกรรม CNRP ก็ตาม

สมาชิกพรรคอีกรายหนึ่งกล่าวว่าเธออยากจะอยู่ในกัมพูชาต่อไปแต่สถานการณ์ทางการเมืองบีบให้เธอและสมาชิกกลุ่มรายอื่นๆ ต้องขอลี้ภัยนอกประเทศ สมาชิกของ CNRP เปิดเผยว่าศาลจังหวัดกําปงสปือมีหมายเรียกให้ไปขึ้นศาลภายในวันที่ 21 มี.ค. นี้ ทำให้พวกเขาต้องขอลี้ภัยกับยูเอ็น

ในแง่ของการครอบงำทางการเมืองในกัมพูชานั้น ศาลสูงสุดที่มีสายสัมพันธ์กับพรรครัฐบาล CPP ของฮุนเซนเคยสั่งยุบพรรค CNRP มาก่อนเมื่อปี 2560 ก่อนการเลือกตั้ง รวมถึงมีการกวาดต้อนจับกุมสมาชิกพรรคทำให้สมาชิกพรรคอย่างน้อย 75 ราย ทั้ง ส.ส. และนักกิจกรรมพรรคต้องหนีออกจากกัมพูชาเพื่อหลีกเลี่ยงไม่ให้ถูกจับกุม

ในขณะที่สม รังสี หัวหน้าพรรค CNRP สัญญาว่าจะกลับมาที่กัมพูชาภายใน 1 ปี เพื่ออาศัยช่วงเวลาที่ทั่วโลกกำลังกดดันพรรค CPP ต่อกรกับรัฐบาลฮุนเซนที่อยู่ในอำนาจมาเป็นเวลานานมากกว่า 30 ปี โดยที่ก่อนหน้านี้ในวันที่ 4 มี.ค. สม รังสี เคยให้สัมภาษณ์ต่อสื่อเรียกร้องให้ผู้สนับสนุนเขาลุกขึ้นต่อสู้โค่นล้มรัฐบาลฮุนเซนอย่างสันติเพื่อย้อนกลับการที่รัฐบาลฮุนเซนปราบปรามทั้งคู่แข่งทางการเมือง สื่ออิสระ และเอ็นจีโอ จนทำให้พวกเขากุมคะแนนเสียงการเลือกตั้งเมื่อปี 2561

           Comment on Here’s Why Bikes Are Great Bug Out Vehicles by The Ohio Prepper       Cache   Translate Page      
Megan <strong>Bikes are Quiet</strong> <blockquote>Unless you choose to use a bike with an electric motor, a bike is much quieter than a car. You’ll get where you need to go without announcing to others where you are.</blockquote> I’ve used those electric motors and at least the ones I tried were whisper quiet and since they use rare earth magnets and lithium power banks, have become highly efficient, long lasting and relatively inexpensive. <strong>Carrying Capacity</strong> <blockquote>But if you bug out on a bike, you can boost your carrying capacity without breaking your back by using panniers or saddle bags along with front or rear racks, or even a bike trailer to carry your bug out supplies. </blockquote> While I suspect this was before your time, this mode of moving people and material proved to be very effective during the Vietnam War. Bicycles were used to transport tons of personnel and supplies along the <strong>“Ho Chi Minh Trail” </strong> that was a military supply route running from North Vietnam through Laos and Cambodia to South Vietnam. The route sent weapons, manpower, ammunition and other supplies from communist-led North Vietnam to their allies in South Vietnam. It consisted of many trails, roads and foot paths that stretched for 9,940 miles along the Vietnam borders, and as I understand it, much of that transport was via pedestrian traffic, pushing / walking bicycles to carry the load. <strong>Easy to Split Up if Being Pursued</strong> <blockquote>If each of your group is on a bike, there’s a chance the most able of the group could split off and lead pursuers one way while the more vulnerable of your group gets away to safety where you can rendezvous later.</blockquote> From a tactical perspective, this may not be the best choice, since like the lion and the antelope, those who run and leave the vulnerable get away, while the vulnerable get eaten. If the more able bodied take flight, it will be easy to see that they are the most fit and perhaps the most threatening, so the best choice for an attacker is to let them go and stay behind to pillage the weak. <strong>Doesn’t Need Gasoline or Other Fuel</strong> True; but, you do need fuel and hydration for the user, so make sure you carry enough with you. <strong>Spare Parts Will Be Plentiful</strong> That’s true to a point with common parts like the chains or seats; but, parts for the derailleur can be very specific to a make and model of bicycle, so it would be best to have unique spares with you. <strong>You Already Own One</strong> Actually we don’t, since we live in our BOL / BIL and even the township roads in the area are too dangerous for bike riding, and loading a bike onto a rack on the vehicle to transport somewhere to ride, seems counterproductive. <strong>Easier to Learn to Fix</strong> That would be true and requires fewer tools and test equipment. <strong>EMP-Proof</strong> Yes; but, tests have indicated that the assertions of novels like <strong>“One Second After” </strong>, while making a neat scary story, are a bit overblown. Most vehicles when tested stopped running if they were running; but, after a short pause, started right back up again, and if you have older vehicles with older technology, they are essentially EMP proof. My perspective while already living full time on our rural combination BOL/BIL may be a bit different than others; but, all of those attributes you list for a bicycle, can be equally applied to a horse and the horse can also pull larger items like plows. They are one of the staple power sources of the local Amish.

Greetings fellow santa clauses!
welp, IT'S A WRAP.
The fundraiser project is now, well, finished(I can't find the right word for this honestly)

The total amount raised is 538USD!!

And it's all thanks to all you incredibly lovely, generous and awesome people.

Below are lousy screen captures of when I did the donations.

I donated to 3 different projects by World Vision Singapore , all projects providing aid for children In Cambodia, China and Ethiopia since my goal for the fundraiser is to help the less fortunate children.

And also donated to The Rainbow Centre(Sri Lanka) whereby they provide education, welfare & support for children living in extreme poverty in Southern Sri Lanka.

I donated an extra 100sgd myself to The Rainbow Centre so yeah, just sayin' in case the math is wrong or something. 

You guys should all throw a little party because you've helped made this project, if I may say, SUCCESSFUL!
All the funds were raised in a week so that's really awesome. Seriously.

The whole project has been really amazing for me because of the amount of support I got from all of you, man I'm horrible with words as usual but can't emphasise enough that, I appreciate everything you guys have done!
I don't know all of you well even though I'd love to, so to actually receive such 'response' for a project that I just told you guys out of the blue is flippin' mind blowing for me.

It was a pretty crazy one month for me and I've never worked this hard for my birthday before (haha. If only you guys can see how much of a zombie I am at work) but it is definitely worth it. The paintings sold out really quickly, receive lots of lovely comments, told other people about this project, I really wish I can do something more than just saying a BIG BIG THANK YOU.
(Why am I not better with words, darn)

My birthday this year is without a doubt an incredibly meaningful one and one of my best birthdays ever.
I got to, in a way, celebrate it not only with my family, but with so many of you from different parts of the world through the amazing thing called the internet!
be santa clauses. :B 

So go buy some cookies, ice cream, cake, whichever you prefer, play some christmas music maybe and celebrate because you all deserve it!

Thanks again. c':

P.S I'll probably update again with scans of the paintings and upload them on my tumblr. Till then.

This month's field trip is the beginning of our social justice unit. In Core Knowledge we will be looking at social activism and how and why people are motivated to make change in their communities.

Our group will step into eight places Medical Teams International’s staff and volunteers serve with international partners:
 A portrayal of the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (“Yolanda”) in the Philippines;
 A room with a 25-foot tsunami wave;
 A Ugandan camp for refugees from neighboring countries;
 A Haitian earthquake site and a tent camp where homeless Haitians are living;
 A Cambodian village where mothers and children struggle to survive and thrive;
 A Mexican garbage dump;
 A Guatemalan community where children die from preventable illnesses;
 A Mobile Dental unit where children and adults in our local communities receive care.

It provides them the opportunity to see the reality for children and adults outside of their everyday life.

We will return at lunch time. There will be no hot lunch, so everyone should bring a lunch.

After lunch we will be attending the 6th grade production of Julius Caesar.

School will get out at 3:30
