Paul Andrew speaks at Yellowknife’s “Global March for Climate Change”

Climate Strike! 1 in 20 Yellowknifers marched in the Capital of Canada’s Northwest Territories !
“…Global March for Climate Change blocks the streets of downtown Yellowknife – Friday, Sep. 27th, 2019 – Roughly one thousand people marched to City Hall in Yellowknife today as part of the Global March for Climate Change. […]
“Dene hide tanners and traditional harvesters have been forced to adjust their connections to land and culture because of the drastic changes in our traditional territories,” Dëneze Nakehk’o, a founding member of Dene Nahjo said. “These close connections have sustained us for generation upon generation since time immemorial. It is also the reason Indigenous Peoples should be on the forefront of climate solutions.” […]
The strike came just days before the territorial election and mere weeks away from the federal election, with many candidates in attendance.
“Today, we’re striking and tomorrow we’ll continue to build a massive movement for a Green New Deal, in the federal election and in our streets and communities after that,” Pretty Ngo, a student spokesperson for the local chapter of Our Time said. […]
All three school boards avoided scheduling tests on the day of the strike to not penalize students who took part and several teachers brought their classes as a whole to the event. …”

French explorer, author, and Buddhist scholar, Alexandra David-Néel

“…French explorer, author, and Buddhist scholar, Alexandra David-Néel led a full and exceptional life. In 1924, at the age of 55, she was the first European woman to cross the Trans-Himalayas in the dead of winter to reach the forbidden city of Lhasa in Tibet. Scaling 19,000-foot peaks without supplementary oxygen and wearing crude leather boots. During her life, which spanned almost 101 years, she wrote more than 30 books on eastern religions and remains today the most authoritative source on Tibetan Buddhism.
The only child of an unfortunate marriage, Louise Eugénie Alexandrine Marie David was born on October 24, 1868, in Saint-Mandé, Val-de-Marne, in between the Bois de Vincennes and the defensive wall surrounding Paris. Her father, Louis David (a distant relative and namesake of the renowned artist, Jacques-Louis David) was a Hugenot Freemason, left-leaning journalist and teacher, and her mother, Alexandrine Borghmans, a Catholic native of Belgium….”

Trump is more than a poor dresser. His clothes are the sign of profound character failure.

🇺🇸 “… Trump is more than a poor dresser. His clothes are the sign of profound character failure.
His total misunderstanding of the most basic elements of formal dress, a misunderstanding he shares with his adult sons but not his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who dresses well, is flagrant evidence of the deep sources of his toxic masculinity. No one seems to have loved him enough as a boy to instruct him on key elements of self-presentation. Worse, he will not listen to experts. People laughed when the president wore a blue jacket and black pants, but think about what the mismatch meant: Did no one close to him tell him? Maybe no one could tell him. His staff is either profoundly unobservant or unwilling to confront him even with such a small and indisputable detail. What else can’t they tell him?
Trump’s outfits are the dressings of a vision of patriarchy that lacks many traditional manly virtues. For professional men, the question of formal wear is not, by any measure, as nuanced or difficult as it is for women. It’s not a reflection of personality to anywhere the same degree. It’s pretty simple really. You have to be able to follow protocol. You have to have enough money to go to a decent tailor. Then you have to know enough to know that the tailor knows more than you. That equation, simple as it is, requires virtues that are vastly more important than clothes—intelligence, restraint and humility. …” full story

[…As President Trump climbed out of his limo and into Air Force One in Minneapolis, an item that sure looked like toilet paper was seen stuck to his shoe. The White House has not commented on what it was. As he boarded the plane, the piece of paper was seen flapping on his heel as he headed up the stairs. The president turned to wave and the paper fell off as he went inside. Social media is going bonkers over the footage.]
