Picture of the Day: Red Fuji Sunset






500px | Flickr | Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Google+


In this stunning sunset photo by Agustin Rafael Reyes, we see the sun’s rays kissing the tip of Mount Fuji, turning it red as clouds below streak across. The picture was taken with a Canon EOS 7D at a Focal Length of 15mm, Shutter Speed of 1/8 secs, an Aperture of f/11 and ISO 100.

Mount Fuji, located on Honshu Island, is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24m (12,389 ft). An active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji lies about 100 kilometres (60 mi) south-west of Tokyo and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone is snow-capped several months a year. [Source]

Daily Tarot for August 23, 2013

Dragonfly Moon Tarot


Today’s card is one of my favorites, it’s the Hierophant. In a more traditional deck, the Hierophant may also be known as the Pope and he is pictured as a Catholic pope or some other authority in church garb. He usually represents higher learning, traditional hierarchical values, and institutional dogma of some kind. He may also represent a connection to higher power, and a spiritual teacher.  Sounds stuffy right? Why should this card be one of my favorites? It’s because in the Mythic Tarot the Hierophant is represented by Chironthe Centaur who is the trainer of heroes, agent of the Gods. This adds a whole new dimension to the card.

Firstly, Chiron himself is a mentor. Gods have delegated him to train young candidates to be heroes.  Being a centaur, his spirituality is very earthy, centaurs usually are connected to the very basic and primal instincts of…

Stagecoach To Somewhere – Brazil Report August

Howard Jackson

The Pope has left the building. He returned to Rome after performing Mass for 3 million Catholics on

Pope in Rio

the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro. The new Pope, who has already hinted that the Catholic Church has to be more tolerant of gays, has to start being groovy somewhere, so why not amongst the suntans and bikinis. Although with 3 million fighting for sand and blocking the sun, nobody would have had a tan that day. If sun seekers were irritated, they have kept quiet. They might have complained, after all they are the regulars.

Talking of barely dressed people, the Brazilian Government has released footage of the usually discrete Kawahiva tribe.    The video was shot in the Amazon in 2011 and shows a group of men carrying bows and arrows through the jungle and a woman with a child.   A reserve of 411,000 acres has been created in the…

Blood and Guts

Karl Lindsay Nature Photography

Blood and Guts


This is a repost of the shot I posted on Day 357 of my daily photo project. I re-edited a few in these series earlier this week and I’m much happier with the new edits. What do you think?

It was taken in Nairobi National Park late one evening shortly before the park closed. We found three young lions by the road and they eventually wandered over to their meal which was partly on the road ahead of us. As we inched past, we were able to get close up visuals of nature at work!

How I Shot It

Camera: Sony a200
Lens: Sony 75-300mm @ 75mm
Exposure: 1/30 sec @ f/4.5 and ISO 400

2013 Ethiopian Heritage Festival in DC to Honor Reeyot Alemu

Ethiopia for all, All for Ethiopia!


Washington, D.C. (TADIAS) – The third annual Ethiopian Heritage Festival will take place next weekend at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. The event is organized by the Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA), and the opening events on July 26th at The Holiday Inn (2101 Wisconsin Ave, NW) will feature a performance by the Young Ethio-Jazz band from California as well as other musical and cultural activities.

Among the organization’s honorees this year include former high school English teacher Reeyot Alemu, recipient of the 2012 Courage in Journalism Award and winner of the 2013 UNESCO World Press Freedom Prize. “Unfortunately, none of the honorees EHSNA has selected in recognition of their work for liberty are able to be present at the festival,” EHSNA said in a press release. Other honorees include eight Muslim leaders who are currently imprisoned in Ethiopia and Abune Petros, the Ethiopian Orthodox Bishop who was…

Coup d’état: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts | Alternative


(Before It’s News)


Dr. Paul Craig Roberts


The American people have suffered a coup d’etat, but they are hesitant to acknowledge it. The regime ruling in Washington today lacks constitutional and legal legitimacy. Americans are ruled by usurpers who claim that the executive branch is above the law and that the US Constitution is a mere “scrap of paper.”





An unconstitutional government is an illegitimate government. The oath of allegiance requires defense of the Constitution “against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” As the Founding Fathers made clear, the main enemy of the Constitution is the government itself. Power does not like to be bound and tied down and constantly works to free itself from constraints.

‘The Whole Sky Was Burning’: A Lac-Mégantic Resident Recalls the Tragedy


Adrien Aubert was moments away from death. At around 1 a.m. on July 6, the 29-year-old, who works for the social network Plogg, was having a beer with friends outside his home in Lac-Mégantic, Québec, a town about 250 kilometers east of Montréal, when he heard a loud boom come from the downtown area, where he was headed next.

He grabbed his camera and darted to the area within minutes, stopping about 200 meters away and only inching closer to film. Aubert arrived so fast that most emergency personnel weren’t even at the scene.

“The whole sky was burning,” he says. “It was just fireballs going high up.” Others near the scene explained that a speeding train had barreled into the heart of town, crashed behind Musi-Café, the popular watering hole where Aubert was about to visit, and exploded.

When he approached the site, he saw four or five…

Barcelona bid sure to set European keeper transfer fees all out of whack


This morning a report in Italian paper Gazetta dello Sport has set the Spanish papers alight with news that Barcelona bid a ridiculous €23 million ($30.7 million) for Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.

And it was turned down!!

Apparently Inter president Massimo Moratti said, “Handanovic to Barcelona? No, Handanovic remains with us.”  According to the report, Moratti is holding out for an even more staggering €30 million ($40 million).

The 28-year-old Slovenian kept just nine clean sheets in 35 Serie A matches, which was tied for 14th in the league, and he had 13 goose eggs in 54 over all competitions. His save percentage of 75.4% was 2nd in Serie A of all keepers with at least 10 games.  He gave up a goal every 59 minutes, 19th in Serie A of keepers with at least 10 games.  Those are good, not great, numbers.

It’s hard to get good statistics for goalkeepers…

1 killed, 8 injured after another blast at chemical plant


[ndn id=24885401]

By Chandler Friedman and Greg Botelho

(CNN) — One person died and eight others were injured in a blast Friday evening at a chemical plant in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, police said.

The incident occurred at a CF Industries facility in the Mississippi River community of about 7,500 people, located some 40 miles south of Baton Rouge. According to its website, CF Industries is “the second largest nitrogen fertilizer producer in the world and the third largest phosphate fertilizer producer among public companies.”

Nitrogen was being offloaded from a tanker truck inside the Donaldsonville plant when “a small vessel ruptured,” plant manager Louis Frey said.

“We don’t know exactly what happened,” he said.

Frey insisted “there was no explosion and no fire. It ruptured.” Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeffrey Wiley explained, “It was kind of like a balloon popping.”

Two of the eight people injured were airlifted from the plant. Louisiana…

Pope Francis Fights Different Kind of Culture War.

Rivers of Hope

Pope Francis
Pope Francis

When Pope Benedict XVI shocked the world in February in becoming the first pope to resign in 600 years, he left behind a Roman Catholic Church weakened by scandals, beset by infighting and suffering from a general sense of isolation from the modern world.

Three months after the election of Argentine Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis, much of the gloom seems to have lifted.

St. Peter’s Square is again a magnet for legions of pilgrims, and the communications problems that dogged Benedict’s papacy have receded. Francis’ simpler, direct style, together with his focus on the poor and the marginalized, has captivated the world.

The first pope from Latin America has now amassed more Twitter followers in Spanish than any other language.

As Francis prepares to mark his first 100 days in office next week—an admittedly arbitrary measure for a 2,000-year-old institution that thinks in centuries—here’s what we’ve…

Hot Lunch returns

The first thing I saw when we hit the playground this morning was this:


Yes, Hot Lunch is back despite urgings to call it “Fun Lunch” by less innocent members of the school community. Fun Lunch is good, if you care about such things as lunch. Hot Lunch is something utterly different.

It’s Hot Fun Lunch today because it’s also Sports Day. When the kids finish sack-racing and tug-of-warring and something called the shoe relay, they get to have hot pizza instead of resorting to whatever desperate mix of randomness parents like my mother put in their lunch bags. Although Fun Lunch represents a minor shakedown for money that could arguably have been spent on liquor, it gives parents a break from packing lunches and breaks up the monotony for the kids.

I started mentioning this to the kids this morning and was immediately shut down by our mother, who…
