I “WALK” “TALL” WITH ” “BRUBAKER TRUMP”   Leave a comment

white long sleevesBRUBAKER WAS A MAN THAT WAS STONG AND SMART, IN THE TRUE MOVIE HE FOUGHT THE POLITICS THAT HAS BEEN THE DOWN FALL OF “AMERICA” I SEE “TRUMP” AS A MAN THAT WILL FIGHT AND WIN AGAINIST  A CORRUPT SYSTEM.  IN THE MOVIE ROBERT REDDFORD PLAYED A NEW WARDEN TO A PRISON.
“WATCH THE MOVIE BELOW AND SEE “TRUMP” BEAT THE CLINTON’S!!!!!

 

 

In 1969 a mysterious man (Robert Redford) arrives at Wakefield State Prison in Arkansas. As an inmate, he immediately witnesses rampant abuse and corruption, including open and endemic sexual assault, torture, worm-ridden diseased food, insurance fraud and a doctor charging inmates for care. Brubaker eventually reveals himself—during a dramatic standoff involving Walter (Morgan Freeman), a deranged prisoner who was being held in solitary confinement—to be the new prison warden, to the amazement of both prisoners and officials alike.

With ideals and vision, he attempts to reform the prison, with an eye towards prisoner rehabilitation and human rights. He recruits several long-time prisoners, including trustees Larry Lee Bullen (David Keith) and Richard “Dickie” Coombes (Yaphet Kotto), to assist him with the reform. Their combined efforts slowly improve the prison conditions, but his stance enrages several corrupt officials on the prison board who have profited from graft for decades.

When Brubaker discovers multiple unmarked graves on prison property, he attempts to unravel the mystery, leading to political scandal. A trustee decides to make a run for it when he realizes that he might be held accountable for killing an inmate. The resulting gunfight, in which Bullen is killed, proves to be the clincher that the prison board needs (acting with the tacit approval of the governor) to fire Brubaker.

A statement before the credits explains that two years after Brubaker was fired, 24 inmates, led by Coombes, sued the prison. The court ruled that the treatment of the prisoners was unconstitutional and the prison system was ultimately reformed. Meanwhile, the governor was not re-elected.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTER ANGELA “BOOTs”   Leave a comment

 

 

 

On August 14, 1961 my sister was born, and here is what other things that makes the date so special.

Monday 14 August 1961

1961-08-14

It was Monday, under the sign of Leo. The US president was John F. Kennedy (Democratic). In that special week of August people in US were listening to Tossin’ And Turnin’ by Bobby Lewis. In UK You Don’t Know by Helen Shapiro was in the top 5 hits. Pit and the Pendulum, directed by Roger Corman, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1961 while The Agony And The Ecstasy by Irving Stone was one of the best selling books

Poke My Birthday on 14.August.1961

On your Way to Your Birthday on 14.August.1961:

You were born on Monday on 14.August.1961 and you think this is your oldest day of your life history but you are sadly wrong. Let’s surprise you:

8.October.1960, Saturday, (Your birthday -310 days):

On 8.October.1960, Saturday, your father has produced the semen that will be half of you soon.

He produced 1000 sperms every second of his life and you will be lucky one out of 500 million sperm he sent on their way in the conceivement. You may find interesting to know that if he had drunk (or not drunk) coffee on this Saturday morning, you might be born completely as someone else (for instance in the opposite sex) as Caffeine changes the speed of male sperms.

23.October.1960, Sunday (Your birthday -295 days):

Today your mother had her last menstrual cycle and started building up the egg, that will be the other half of you.

After today, she will not have this cycle again for a very long time (thanks to you!). She spent Sunday as moody, anxious, short-tempered and you should be glad, you were not around her that day!

7.November.1960, Monday (Your birthday -280 days):

Your mother’s egg is ready to build the other half of you and your father and your mother got together to make you.

But there is still no “you” around so don’t get excited much. It can take several hours for your father’s sperm to reach your mother’s egg and now it is just on its way out.

8.November.1960, Tuesday (Your birthday -279 days):

Out of 500 million sperm on their way to your mother’s egg, the sperm which built you has won the race by coming first and the sperm and the egg is became one to make your very first cell. Do you see how lucky your half (the sperm) be by winning coming up first among 500 million other rivals? Never tell you are not lucky anymore!

We can call Tuesday, 8.November.1960 as your “first day alive” because this is when you are a living entity, an embryo, congratulations! Although you are just a 1 cell creature today your unique DNA is also formed so your future destiny like your sex, height, physical apperance, intelligence, characteristic and vulnability to certain dissesases is already been determined.

22.November.1960, Tuesday (Your birthday -265 days):

If your mother is an intelligent women, she would have suspected that she is pregnant at 22.November.1960, Tuesday. She is not very sure yet but she is suspicious. We hope she was excited and joyed, not worried.

29.November.1960, Tuesday (Your birthday -258 days):

Today your mother is telling your father about her pregrancy and he is celebrating to be a daddy!

Day 29.November.1960, Tuesday is also important in that, your heart has pumped for the first time today. We don’t know if it is a coincedence that your father learned about you in the very day, your heart first pumped!

13.February.1961, Monday (Your birthday -182 days):

Your parents could have lawfully got an abortion until 13.February.1961, Monday so this is also an important day of your life. Today they decided you should live!

We are glad they didn’t otherwise, we’d lose one site visitor in pokemybirthday.com.

14.August.1961, Monday(Your birthday):

You are born to a cruel world. Happy birthday little buddy! We hope you remember to enjoy your life which was a big journey from day minus 310 to today.

Your lucky days are Monday (Conceivement date, Your parents decided to not to have an abortion, You were born) and Tuesday (Your first cell is built, Your mother suspects she is pregnant, Your heart beat for the first time).

  • You are exactly 55 years 1 week 4 days 8 hours 34 minutes old.
  • You will receive your next birthday gift in 2 days 15 hours 26 minutes later.
  • If your hair were never cut since 14.August.1961, it would be 8.014 m. today.
  • If your nails were never cut since 14.August.1961, they would be 1.989 m. today.
  • An apple tree seeded on 14.August.1961, bore 4,884.011 kg. apple till today.

Its contribution to economy is $19,487.2 and it fed 8,195 people. We hope that in your life you, as a human being, achieved more than that poor apple tree.

Tom, a local teacher, became homeless for 30 days to raise awareness for the homeless. Here’s what happened when he tried to “Get a Job” with multiple college degrees and a degree from the US Navy.
Ten Things you can do to help Homeless People

 Most of the people that find themselves in a Shelter or the Salvation Army system are the ones that fall through the crack in a system with to many guild lines that is to protect each person.  That is where the problem fall’s short.  Back when I was young the Church is the ones that help all the people in the city and towns.  But today’s world I don’t see the churches doing what was done 40yr ago. we rely on the SSI Food Stamps, and Fed and state help, I do see a lot done for the shelter by church “FOOD” is one of the things they do very well.  And GOD see’s that I am sure.  What this web will do is give you a  insight of what is needed by you I am not asking for money.
I want you to go and see and talk to the homeless!! Don’t be scared!! They are more scared of you, then you of them.
Bring some of the things I listed above and give it out to them, Very easy they will be sitting outside until 4pm 7 days a week.

RESOURCE BOOK:  BASIC GRAMMAR IN USE                                                                                  LEVEL: BEGINNER to ADULT

BOOKS: GRAMMAR, VOCABULARY, READING, WRITING, SLE,                                                           TIME FRAME: ONE MONTH

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Grammar is important because it is the language that makes it possible for us to talk about language. Grammar names the types of words and word groups that make up sentences not only in English but in any language. As human beings, we can put sentences together even as children–we can all do grammar. But to be able to talk about how sentences are built, about the types of words and word groups that make up sentences–that is knowing about grammar. And knowing about grammar offers a window into the human mind and into our amazingly complex mental capacity. People associate grammar with errors and correctness. But knowing about grammar also helps us understand what makes sentences and paragraphs clear and interesting and precise. Grammar can be part of literature discussions, when we and our students closely read the sentences in poetry and stories. And knowing about grammar means finding out that all languages and all dialects follow grammatical patterns.

 

GRAMMAR: To Learn English Grammar and how the differences are between learning English in it true form.  The English Language has many different parts of Grammar and to understand each part it must be done one step at a time.

Suggestions / Recommendation:

Basic Grammar in Use:  (To learn Grammar is a short time and to insure that the Grammar can be used in a formal and a business setting).  To learn all the parts of Grammar, Present, Past, Present Perfect, Passive,

– Learning strategies, such as vocabulary indexing and clustering, focus students on becoming independent learners.
– Activities include games, cartoons, role-plays, surveys, and dictations, as well as listening and writing activities that appeal to a wide range of learning styles.
