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.

The rare Siberian tiger gets its name from its cold homeland, which is covered in snow for much of the year. Its range is larger than that of any other subspecies, and it frequently embarks on long journeys in search of food.
HABITS

The Siberian tiger occupies a very large territory. Ranges of more than 4,000 square miles have been recorded. The tiger may occupy the same territory for many years if food sources are stable within the area. If prey is scarce, it often migrates hundred of miles.

Both males and females mark the boundaries of their ranges with urine and by scratching trees. But only the male defends his territory against other males, concentrating on the most important parts, such as a boundary close to a female’s territory or an area rich in food.

The male tiger is solitary, shunning other males. He allows tigers of either sex to pass through his range but is more tolerant of females. The female is sometimes accompanied by her young.

Tigers mate at any time during the year. A female shows that she is ready to mate by leaving urine deposits and scratch marks on trees. In Siberia, where a tiger’s range is vast, she may go in search of a male.

The female is receptive for only three to seven days. during this time a pair will mate many times, after which the male leaves to mate with another female.

 

  After a gestation period of three to three and a half months, three or four blind cubs are vorn is a sheltered den. they are nursed by their mother, who rarely leaves them. At about two weeks old their eyes open and their first teeth begin to grow

At three months the cubs start to leave the den, and the mother brings them meat to eat. They continue to take her milk until they are five or six months old. At this stage they may begin to accompany her on hunting trips.

 

The cubs are less than a year old when they start to hunt for themselves. At two years old they can kill large prey, but they will not leave their mother until they are three to five years old. They then start to look for their own territories and mates.
The Siberian tiger spends a lot of time hunting because only about one in ten of its hunting trips is successful. It preys mainly on deer and wild pig, but it also eats fish.

Creeping to within 30 to 80 feet of its victim, the tiger pounces and grabs the prey by the nape of the neck with its back feet still planted firmly on the ground.

This name bite kills small prey, but larger prey is brought to the ground before being killed by a suffocating bite to the throat. If the tiger misses its prey on the pounce, it may chase if for up to 650 feet but rarely catches it.

When it does kill its prey, the tiger drags it to cover, usually near water. It then eats its fill, covers up the remains, and goes to sleep. Later it eats the rest of the carcass.

The Siberian tiger’s winter coat lacks the red stripes of tigers from warmer climates, but its white coat helps camouflage it in its snowy habitat.

Because it has to withstand temperatures as low as 50** F, the Siberian tiger grows a longer and thicker coat than other tigers. It also develops a layer of fat on its flanks and belly that helps to insulate it.

 

 

 

 
             Length: Male, 9-12 feet head to tip of tail. Female smaller.

 

             Height: About 3 1/2 feet at shoulder.

 

             Weight: 400-650 lb.
