The Death of a Great Tusker

Poachers kill beloved Kenyan elephant known for giant tusks

By Faith Karimi, CNN
Sun June 15, 2014

Poachers killed one of Kenya’s most beloved elephants — a behemoth animal with tusks so large, they touched the ground.

Satao was shot with poisoned arrows in the sprawling Tsavo National Park in the country’s southeast.

SATAO

Wildlife officials found his carcass with two massive holes where his tusks once stood. His face was so badly mutilated, authorities used other ways to identify him, including his ears and the pattern of mud caked on his body.

“Satao is dead, killed by an ivory poacher’s poisoned arrow to feed the seemingly insatiable demand for ivory in far off countries. A great life lost so that someone far away can have a trinket on their mantlepiece,” Tsavo Trust said in statement late Friday.

“I love you DeLainey Elizabeth more than words can even say.

I don’t understand why you were taken from me and I never will. Just know that you are missed so much by me, daddy and your big brother.

I showed him your picture and he said you were pretty. He is so right you are so beautiful and perfect just like I knew you would be. You look like him to me which I wished for the entire time you were in my belly. I am never going to get over the pain of losing you baby girl. I want to kiss you and hold you so bad right now it is tearing me apart.

The summer solstice occurs when the tilt of a planet’s semi-axis, in either the northern or the southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star (sun) that it orbits. Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the sun is 23° 26′. This happens twice each year, at which times the sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or the south pole.

The summer solstice occurs during a hemisphere’s summer. This is northern solstice in the northern hemisphere and the southern solstice in the southern hemisphere. Depending on the shift of the calendar, the summer solstice occurs some time between December 20 and December 23 each year in the southern hemisphere and between June 20 and June 22 in the northern hemisphere.

~~June 20, 2014~~

Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all.

~~Inner peace~~

Inner peace (or peace of mind) refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being “at peace” is considered by many to be healthy homeostasis and the opposite of being stressed or anxious. Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss and happiness.

WHAT IS POLLINATION?

Pollination results when the pollen from the male part of the flower (stamen) is moved to the female part of the same or another flower (stigma) and fertilizes it, resulting in the production of fruits and seeds.  Some flowers rely on the wind to move pollen, while other rely on animals to move pollen.

Animals visit flowers in search of food and sometimes even mates, shelter and nest-building materials. Some animals, such as many bees, intentionally collect pollen, while others, such as many butterflies and birds, move pollen incidentally because the pollen sticks on their body while they are collecting nectar from the flowers. All of these animals are considered pollinators.

Background of Pollinator Week
Pollinator Week was initiated and is managed by the Pollinator Partnership.

Sway With No Play

I am an elephant
Forced to perform in a traveling circus
That is not my element 
My herd I was taken from
Alone I have become
I miss my mommies touch
My trunk she would clutch
I am put on display
For their money to be made
In the wrong kind of way
They teach me to obey
My spirit they are trained to break
My dignity they also take 

Fifteen years I have already been here
I live in fear
I am beat on my legs with a club
For them to sell a ticket stub
Because I do not know how to sit in this chair
They scream and swear
I am poked with a bull hook
My skin takes on a new look
I am beat with a stick to learn new tricks
In strange positions I am made to…

In the middle of the night on April 15, more than 300 girls were kidnapped from their school in Chibok, Nigeria. While the horrific crime — carried out by Islamist militant group Boko Haram — went largely unreported for nearly two weeks, you’ve probably heard a whole lot about the#BringBackOurGirls campaign over the last few days.

Let’s talk about the facts first:

Why did Boko Haram attack the school? The group has been terrorizing northeastern…

Self Determination begins with SELF!


Coming at the perfect time!! TY ….

The Why About This

IMAG3900-1-1-1

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a self determination button. You see it sparkling out there in front of you. You reach out and hit the button, and just like magic – you become self determined and ready to take charge of your life.

Well, guess what? There is one. More of a metaphorical button than a physical one, but it’s still real. And it works too.

Self determination begins when you begin asking questions for yourself. Of yourself, of others. And once you get the answers, you act on them. You don’t wait for someone else. YOU make it happen.

So push the button, ask that first question. Here’s a good question to start off with: Do I feel good about myself and where I am in my life? Another good question: What can I do about it?
