Determining Our Self Worth . . .

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

“Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

But often, words do hurt us. Any time that this is the case, it means that we have become confused about our identity, that we have forgotten our worth as a human being.”

Jonathan Manske shares his ‘Daily Dose’ that are insightful and inspiring – they are meant to “helping you to do better”.

“You Can Actually Make A Choice” – Prof Danny Dorling

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Professor Danny Dorling said it plain and simple. There is freedom of choice when not in fear and frightened. Having a choice is a realistic value in every human being. However, there are many who don’t have that choice because of inability to save resources that they need.

What this means to you?

  • Self assessing your abilities to gain independence that will give you the choice you wanted in life

  • Make priorities about what makes sense in spending your earning and save, save, save some or most of your income. Your future will depend on that success and choice. Having adequate savings will provide you that choice to enjoy living life independently

  • Refrain from being ‘subservient sucker’ to capitalism or being an ‘economic slave’ – be yourself, practical, use commons sense, exercise independent thinking that will give you that ‘real choice’

Real Estate: Advantages of a “Live-in Ready Home” and the Amenities of Nature Plus Convenience …

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Strategist

Why should I look for quality home when buying a residence? For sure, the first consideration is the peace of mind and not much work to be done upon arrival of settling-in.  Of course, there is an argument of buying a newly built house in a new development or buying a well maintained home that already exist in a desirable neighborhood that is well equipped; within the beautiful environment, spectacular views, neighborhood, residents, natural and shopping amenities.

Personal preferences exist regardless of motivation. However, when one make a decision for a long term abode that is influenced with personal convenience and circumstances. Big consideration is location, location, location. These three words’ #realestate motto will come with a $Price Tag; oftentimes not accessible to everyone. There are opportunities for everyone regardless of likes and dislikes.

This home is one of its rarity, plus it provides you a preview of how well-maintained this home through the Pre-inspection Report that was made available through their Selling Agent in MLS Listing #1143965. Private viewing can be arranged through your Real Estate Broker.

Why Consider the Advantages? Because of serenity and balanced living  …

You are not only buying a house, you are buying a home where you can relax, enjoy your moments with all the amenities within and its surroundings. Accessibility to various metropolis, cultural immersions, public and private infrastructures.

When you like sunsets without going away from home, convenient living in this home offers you those phenomenal sunsets from Spring Season to Winter Season through picture windows in the house. Like the following photos; don’t you feel like experiencing all of these? According to the current home owners, each day has a new panorama to appreciate over cocktails, coffee or tea.

You can also create your own “from garden to table experience” by building your own organic vegetable or produce garden within your own backyard. The current owners of this ‘rarely available single level home’ have enjoyed their own organically sustained garden over the years with the following fruits and vegetables;

The new owner of this home will enjoy numerous bearing fruit berries, seasonal plants and flowers, plus the serene surroundings that are available day-in and day-out or one can enjoy the private sanctuary that will be waiting for them.

 

When you enjoy private living with natural amenities, having conversations with and entertaining friends, this place is made for your lifestyle.

Actively Looking for a New Home? One Tip that experienced home buyers share is to request a Pre-inspection Report through your professional representative and discuss its details so that you are educated on the advantages of owning a well maintained home or embracing lots of unwanted home projects in addition to your real estate purchase cost. My personal experience was understanding the Pre-inspection Report and made the best decision.

Squids Increased Dramatically in UK’s North Sea – An Impact of #ClimateChange

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“Climate Change is affecting fish habitation as well. Scientists in the United Kingdom observed that fish like squids that are usually found in the warmer waters have dramatically increased their presence in the north seas of UK. In the contrary, the fish that enjoy the colder water like cods are moving out. These reversed situations are impacts of #ClimateChange.”

Environment Editor Damian Carrington wrote; “Squid and anchovies are moving into warming waters in large numbers, a report finds, with the long-lost bluefin tuna also returning”. (source credit: theguardian)

Happy 150th Anniversary Canada

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Canada, Our best wishes for more 150 Anniversaries that will come …

We celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation. We come together as Canadians to celebrate the achievements of our great country, reflect on our past and present, and look boldly toward our future. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Statement of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau;

“Canada’s story stretches back long before Confederation, to the first people who worked, loved, and built their lives here, and to those who came here centuries later in search of a better life for their families. In 1867, the vision of Sir George-Étienne Cartier and Sir John A. Macdonald, among others, gave rise to Confederation – an early union, and one of the moments that have come to define Canada.

“In the 150 years since, we have continued to grow and define ourselves as a country. We fought valiantly in two world wars, built the infrastructure that would connect us, and enshrined our dearest values – equality, diversity, freedom of the individual, and two official languages – in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These moments, and many others, shaped Canada into the extraordinary country it is today – prosperous, generous, and proud.

“At the heart of Canada’s story are millions of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They exemplify what it means to be Canadian: ambitious aspirations, leadership driven by compassion, and the courage to dream boldly. Whether we were born here or have chosen Canada as our home, this is who we are.

“Ours is a land of Indigenous Peoples, settlers, and newcomers, and our diversity has always been at the core of our success. Canada’s history is built on countless instances of people uniting across their differences to work and thrive together. We express ourselves in French, English, and hundreds of other languages, we practice many faiths, we experience life through different cultures, and yet we are one country. Today, as has been the case for centuries, we are strong not in spite of our differences, but because of them.

“As we mark Canada 150, we also recognize that for many, today is not an occasion for celebration. Indigenous Peoples in this country have faced oppression for centuries. As a society, we must acknowledge and apologize for past wrongs, and chart a path forward for the next 150 years – one in which we continue to build our nation-to-nation, Inuit-Crown, and government-to-government relationship with the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Nation.

“Our efforts toward reconciliation reflect a deep Canadian tradition – the belief that better is always possible. Our job now is to ensure every Canadian has a real and fair chance at success. We must create the right conditions so that the middle class, and those working hard to join it, can build a better life for themselves and their families.

“Great promise and responsibility await Canada. As we look ahead to the next 150 years, we will continue to rise to the most pressing challenges we face, climate change among the first ones. We will meet these challenges the way we always have – with hard work, determination, and hope.

“On the 150th anniversary of Confederation, we celebrate the millions of Canadians who have come together to make our country the strong, prosperous, and open place it is today. On behalf of the Government of Canada, I wish you and your loved ones a very happy Canada Day.” (credit source: PM Website)

“About Everyday Life and About All of Us” Said #JeremyCorbyn

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN 

More power to the Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of Labour Party in the United Kingdom. Today, he was welcomed at the Glastonbury Festival 2017 with a ‘thunderous applause’ once he arrived at the event (please see image below).

The Guardian reported that “Tens of thousands gathered to watch Corbyn in mid-afternoon – a crowd of a size typically reserved for Glastonbury headliners. Almost all those present were fans, many wearing T-shirts bearing his face or name, and there were dozens of banners of appreciation.” (creditsource: theguardian)

Jeremy Corbyn gained respect and admiration among UK Citizens because of his character, competency, humility and values as an individual. Many Britons across Europe call him “relatable person who is leading the entire nation and his party”. Everyday, the Labour Party is increasing their membership and people across UK likes him to take over the Premiership of the nation. At any time in the future there is a great possibility that another general election will be held in the UK. And the new Prime Minister will be Jeremy Corbyn of Labour Party.

Theresa May’s administration is now very wobbly and weak. Almost daily or weekly, that there were scandals and court decisions that were written against her. She lost her mandate based from the result of the Snap Election last that she called two weeks ago. By losing the majority she was forced to make a coalition with the DUP of Ireland in order to form a majority government. In the past, the DUP party demonstrated hate and inequality particularly to the LGBTI+ community.  (creditsources: theguardian  and HuffingtonPostUK)

In the recent Opening of Parliament, the world was surprised when the Queen arrived at the Parliament by her car not her Queen’s carriage and was wearing a day dress instead of her Queen’s regalias.  According to theCanary, a similar event took place in the past during the term of Conservative leader Edward Heath. Soon after, Mr. Heath resigned and he was a history. Speculatively, a similar fashion may take place for Ms. May and Jeremy Corbyn will form a minority government. (creditsource: theCanary)

#LGBTI Australians Gain Support From Religious Leaders for #MarriageEquality

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Perhaps Australia will be coming at age to accept ‘#MarriageEquality‘ among its citizens.

Hopefully, their divisive political leaders will come to an agreement in supporting this socially impactful legislation for their #LGBTI citizens.

Recently, Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was called by religious leaders to legislate marriage equality now.  Here are some of their highlights; (source: equalitycampaign.org.au)

  • More than 100 Australian Religious Leaders have called on the PM Malcolm Turnbull to legislate for marriage equality now.
  • Support from all major Australian religions – leaders from Catholic, Anglican, Uniting, Buddhist, Muslim and Jewish Faiths, the Salvation Army and the Quakers.
  • This is about Civil Marriage Equality – ensuring every Australian is afforded the same dignity and respect.

Congratulations to Leo Varadkar, An Openly Gay and Youngest Taoiseach of Ireland

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

“It is great to see another member of the LGBTQ+ as #RealLeader of a nation; this time the Taoiseach of Ireland – Leo Varadkar. Congratulation and more power to the Prime Minister.

 “He represents a younger generation. He represents a modern, diverse and inclusive Ireland and speaks for them like no other, an Ireland in which each person can fulfill their potential and live their dreams,” – Outgoing Prime Minister Enda Kenny (source: vox.com)

Background:

In April 2003, Leo Varadkar completed his six-year degree in medicine at Trinity College Dublin. He was a member of Young Fine Gael on campus and was elected as a councillor with 5,000 first preference votes a year after he entered politics. Leo is the first graduate of the college to be elected Taoiseach.

He is now in the Irish history book, as the first openly gay and country’s youngest prime minister, and the son of an Indian immigrant. Leo’s partner is Matthew Barrett, who is also a doctor by profession.

Leo Varadkar, 38 and newly elected Taoiseach of Ireland, is the EU’s youngest national leader;  Jüri Ratas, is 38-year-old  and the Prime Minister of Estonia, and Emmanuel Macron, 39, the recently elected President of France; the trio are all under  the age of 40. (source reference: theguardian)

UK Citizens Have Cornered Theresa May’s Arrogance And Insensitivity: The Hung Parliament “the youths played a big role”

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

The UK Citizens have decided to give Theresa May the tail of her political career after presenting herself with arrogance and insensitivity toward the British people. The election that she demanded backfired and the results will intensify the end of her premiership. Her failure to garner majority seats was impacted by her self-mandated election. Now, her moments as a prime minister is numbered as her party colleagues are rising to oust her.

Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour Party Leader and #RealLeader have transformed the UK’s political energy where every generation, particularly the millennials went to the polls yesterday to decide their future and other generations future. His party ignited support across United Kingdom because they presented a humane-manifesto that illustrated care for their own citizenry.

As Matthew d’Ancona puts it “her dreams lie in ashes“.

In the coming days and weeks, we will witness some tactical strategies that May’s team will implement in order to try hard in saving their losses from the Citizenry; who turned their back on them. In progress, the camp of the ‘Theresa May’ and the ‘DUP’ – Democratic Unionist Party of Northern Ireland are trying to cooperate as a Coalition. The Citizens of UK might get blind-sided with the approach of Theresa May and her team because they are teaming-up with a ‘hateful group’ – the DUP.

Perhaps the Labour party will disclose all the DUP’s past in order to navigate a trustworthy government of UK for the sake of the Citizenry. More power to the new Labour Party under the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn and his team.

“We Need You” “The World Needs You” – Senator Kamala Harris

By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Senator Kamala Harris is a new US Senator of California who possesses the quality of leadership and competency that is essential in the US Congress. We need more of her type of DNA, #RealLeader that will influence the current and future Congress of America. She is currently demonstrating exceptional senatorial competency that is prominent and intelligent; especially when questioning during the senate hearing of  ‘Trump Russia Scandal’. She is a Rising Star in the US Senate and is someone to be watched of her transformation for any future political office.

Recently she gave an inspiring commencement address to the 2017 graduating class at Howard University.

“And I know sometimes we’re afraid of falling short. It’s not that we don’t know what we should do. It’s that the bar can sometimes feel too high. It takes so much time and effort to reach it, so much sweat and so many tears. And being human, we sometimes fall short. And that’s OK.”
