    Way to go, META!!!!

    • December 19, 2013 at 11:11 pm

      Over the next year and decade, two memes that are supportive of a common paradigm must emerge as dominant goals for all humanity – #EquitableOpportunity and #EmpathyNotGreed.

      Yes We MUST

        Yes We MUST

        • December 20, 2013 at 2:20 am

          Expect interminable tweets from me on the memes of #EquitableOpportunity & #EmpathyNotGreed. Regret if any TODers find that discomforting.

          Entirely as a result of enjoying life-long favorite Cambridge and Oxford Choir Performances of Benjamin Britten’s ‘A Ceremony of Carols’ coupled with LL’s post of Christmas classics, yesterday evening, I had the good fortune of cyber-stumbling on The Medelein Choir School that, rather ironically, is located in Salt Lake City.

          I have zero ‘organized religion’ affilliations but found it amazing that both venue and pre-K to 8th grade choir and school would reside in Mormon ‘ground zero.’

          Moreover, the Madelein Chori School is the ONLY co-ed choir school in the USA – and, it’s obviously racially/culturally diverse :)

          Details aside, these young folk do Benjamin Britten justice …

          And, here they are in Rome …

          My hope is that as TODers in all time zones awaken or already are awake on 20 Dec 2013, that they have an opportunity to savor these young vocal artists.

    Defense Programs Bill now being voted in the Senate. Will be interesting to see if any Senator votes against it. I’m fully prepared to excoriate those that do, via the Twitter machine.

        I hate uncle jindals. As an Indian, I have dealt with europeans, russians, japanese, americans and africans in my business over 3 decades. I always stay & act indian.

          Way to go AMK! Indians have contributed so much to humanity. I am glad you are happy to act and stay indian even as you broaden your circle of contacts through your interacting with people from other countries and cultures. After all, didn’t India give to the world M. Gandhi, arguably one of the greatest moral teachers/icon in human history? I personally don’t understand why people like Jindal feel that it is necessary to suppress (or down play) their Indian heritage in exchange for being loved and validated by American right wingers. Guess what, for people who believe and preach the doctrine of white supremacy, Bobby Jindal will never be good enough until he completely disavows his Indian-ness! I suppose that’s what he is trying to do.

            Pity is even if he paints himself in pasty white, the ‘base’ would never accept him as their equal. If every one is like every one, it becomes a boring world within a second.

              You are a treasure, amk. Your international/global perspective is priceless….much like the President’s. Congrats on daughter’s achievements and hope the driving lessons for son-of-amk are going well. Please give wifey unit my total admiration.

                Thank you, Lynn. I am a bit lucky to have the opportunities to travel the world. That’s all.

                Son got two days of lessons and then back to college again. His real hols start tomorrow but I am sending to another factory for in-plant training the day after. He can have his damned holidays after he finishes the college.

    Reminder that signing up for Medicaid under ACA takes place year round starting Jan. 1. Once you qualify your medical bills get covered up to 90 days retroactively.

    Barack Obama warns that South Sudan is on the “precipice” of a civil war, as sectarian clashes intensify and a UN mission is attacked.

    China was “irresponsible” and “unhelpful” during the near-collision of a US warship and a Chinese naval vessel, the US Defence Secretary said.

    Chuck Hagel said the Chinese boat cut in front of USS Cowpens on 5 December, and described the act as “incendiary”.

    China, who described the incident as an “encounter”, said the incident was handled with “strict protocol”.

    It has been described as the most serious Sino-US confrontation in the South China Sea since 2009.

    The US said its guided missile cruiser was operating in international waters when a Chinese navy vessel forced it to take evasive action.

    But China claims parts of the South China Sea, and state-run newspaper Global Times quoted an expert as saying that the US boat had been “harassing” China’s aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, as it carried out drills.

    Cole Haan partnered with up-­and-­coming fresh faces of today who are making good things happen to highlight what they are giving, getting and giddy about for #Holiday2013. Heavy metal band and Talented & Gifted muses, Unlocking the Truth, were a part of the cast and have created their own version of Jingle Bells. Don’t miss your chance to see this incredible trio in action.

    a local news update on the president’s holiday stay in hawaii

    http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/24267987/presidential-preparations-underway-on-oahu

    we’re excited just to have him home, even though i’m personally not on oahu, and won’t see a bit of the action! it’s stormy right now, with fresh snow on our tallest mountain, mauna kea. maybe the obamas will want to play in the snow while they’re here!

      Hi Susanne! I’m thrilled to know the First Family will be safe on their much-deserved vacation but it really bothers me when the press publishes this much detail about their security arrangements. Maybe it’s just me.

        mornin’ dudette!
        yes, it’s because there really isn’t any news about the president’s arrival, and people are excited to see the preparations–means he’s really almost here! like christmas decorations for santa, i guess. agreed, it’s not wise to disclose security measures, even in friendly hawaii.
        thanks for all your fun posts through the night!
