Kid Summer Triathlon

July 1, 2019

KID TRIATHLON idea:

Summer time and children are out of school and have free time. Musea suggests that there be a KID SUMMER TRIATHLON for kids around 10 years old

Three events.
1. READ: The child must read 100 pages of any books he/she chooses. 2. WALK : The child must walk a total of 10 miles
3. SERVE: The child must do 10 hours of community service

When the parents confirm that the child has finished the triathlon – he/she will receive $100 prize!

Small Houses and Rich Neighborhoods

May 25, 2019

SMALL HOUSES and RICH NEIGHBORHOODS

By now, everyone recognizes the need for low cost housing. Small homes are perfect for seniors, singles, or couples just starting out. They are also houses that architects love to design. So who’s against?

Rich Neighborhoods are against. The problem is when there are too many small houses together it lowers the value of richer homes around them. The wealthy protect their neighborhoods from the influx of smaller homes because they usually house poorer people, that bring down the worth of their larger homes.

The solution is half and half.

The solution is to allow for mini houses to be built anywhere, but in limited numbers. That means a nice neighborhood would get 2-5, not hundreds of small houses. That would be good for both sides.

The rich would retain the wealth of their homes and have access to housing for parents, and kids.
The poor would have access to housing they can buy. And it would help eliminate segregated ghettos of poor people.

The NPR Public Editor has got to Go!

May 9, 2019

The Public editor has time to talk about a theme song switch on one morning news show, but won’t talk about NPR’s policy that blocks all mention of the entire music revolution where thousands and thousands of musicians are against the Big 3, the three old men, no women, that control the entire music industry.

Time for a new Public Editor, one who covers our serious concerns, and goes beyond this lite coverage.

This PE has become a watchdog for NPR, not listeners. We need someone new.

Safe Earth … not yet!

May 2, 2019

We don’t live on a safe Earth yet.
Too many people can’t be free without being afraid of consequences for their actions, actions that most nations feel are the rights for all people.
Be safe till we all can be safe.
