“What We Got Here is a Failure to Communicate”~

Ah, yes…love is in the air!

Elephant Seals are obviously not the only species with this problem!

This sub-adult male seems a bit sheepish about his not yet mature mating attempts.

He looks at me almost as if he’s apologetic!

He’s just practising now, learning how to deal with all the rejection.

Elephant Seal mating is disturbingly violent. It is a hard life being an elephant seal.

Looking into the female’s eyes it is impossible not to feel sorry for her and her continual harassment.

For now at least, the adolescent males just look beached and confused!
Cheers to you the Piedras Blancas elephant seals~

I found Ernie & Ethel sitting side by side! I don’t see them doing that very often.It’s mating season so they tend to hang out a lot together.So much so that when Ethel took off,Ernie joined her seconds later!

Black Female Artists Tackle The Dangerous Stereotypes That Have Never Defined Them

I like this…excellent!

Mildred Howard, “I’ve Been a Witness to this Game IX,” color monoprint/digital on found paper with collage, 2016.

article by Priscilla Frank via huffingtonpost.com

The pop culture landscape is littered with lazy images of black women ― the nurturer, the hussy, the angry bitch. Hovering around the all-encompassing myth of the “strong black woman,” those paper-thin characterizations fail to represent real women in all their complexity and vulnerability.

Despite the monolithic representations that appear so often in TV series, advertisements, films and the imaginations of those who digest them, artists have long worked to provide images that speak to the depth and sweet fallibility of all human beings ― black women included.

An exhibition at the Alexandria Museum of Art, titled “Beyond Mammy, Jezebel, & Sapphire: Reclaiming Images of Black Women,” deconstructs the limiting categorizations mainstream culture allows black women. The artists on view reveal the shoddy nature…

Came across a great rainbow today but couldn’t really take advantage of it.I couldn’t find a eagle anywhere?

I couldn’t see Tranquil valley due to the rain. In the second shot you can see a tall Sitka.That dead tree is huge btw.I’m waiting for a wind storm to bring it down.I’ve always thought that It would make a excellent eagle tree,but I’ve never seen one on it.

Some Sunday Scenery & Songs!!!

I’m getting ready to watch “The Battle of Five Armies” – finally! I figured this post was worth a re-blog, since I’m feeling lazy. Enjoy!

Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

’tis blustery today – the power and interwebz are flickering intermittently! I figured I’d do a quick post of some recent in-game scenery, at the very least…but, I keep getting interrupted when I try to read various blogs, so I am reading them via my ‘phablet.’ Doing so prevents me from using a ‘Like’ button, so don’t think that you’re forgotten! I swear, some people are demanding and think that if you miss reading them once, that you’ve abandoned them – and that isn’t the case. Drama queens (and kings) of that nature are definitely not worth the time and effort…and you can bet that I’m nothing like that. I understand that real life issues get in the way, and people return when (and if) they can. If not…c’est la vie, non?

You gotta have heart

Whites still make up 90% of Brazilian advertising, but three recent commercials featuring Afro-Brazilians provide a glimmer of hope for racial diversity

Hope springs eternal…fair representation just might be a reality in my lifetime!

Black Women of Brazil

caapa3

Note from BW of Brazil: One post (among many) revealed a fact that is quite shocking: “In Brazilian advertising, more than 90% of the protagonists continue to be white.” Anyone who has taken time to analyze commercials (as well as programs) on Brazil’s television stations from the racial perspective could tell you this. It’s really not that hard to see. Anyone who has visited Brazil  will surely not see the country as a majority white nation (well, maybe if they visited the southern region of the country), but that’s not the idea one would get from the media. Nothing new here.

6 Recent C&A commercial for the Verão Misturado campaign

After, didn’t I tell you that “black women account for only 1% of the protagonists in Brazil’s TV commercials”? Or that there exists a fear “that white women won’t buy a product if the girl in the ad…

BLACK HISTORY: Sarah Bailey Center in GA Named for Leader Who Organized Black Girl Scout Troops in 1940s

Educator and Missionary Sarah Bailey (photo via blackamericaweb.com)

article by Lori Lakin Hutcherson (follow @lakinhutcherson)

Sarah Randolph Bailey, born 1885 in to freed slaves, was a longtime educator and missionary who saw the value in troubled young girls and volunteered her time to provide guidance.

After earning her teaching degree and working at a rehabilitation and detention center for girls in Macon, Georgia, Bailey had the vision to organize young women for the Young Women’s Christian Association’s (YWCA) Girl Reserves group.

In 1935, Bailey gathered informal groups of Black girls and started giving them the opportunity to learn life skills and lessons, much like their white counterparts in the Girl Scouts. After organizing some 15 Girl Reserve troops in Georgia, Girl Scouts, U.S.A. took notice and invited Bailey to organize the first Black Girl Scouts troop in Macon. (The Girl Scouts started integrating troops in 1913 and…
