An Ishikawa Arts Photojournalism Series: Payatas, photography in the city of garbage.
“…we turned the corner there seemed to be a very large hill very close by complete with paths and green vegetation. However, upon closer inspection one would begin to notice dump trucks ascending to the summit to be greeted by backhoes. One would also notice that there was little soil on the large hill but it was garbage…”

“In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it’s written “the kingdom of God is within man”, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people, have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.”
-Charlie Chaplin, from “The Great Dictator”

Coming tomorrow i’m sure there will be a lot of gloom and doom posts, sarcastic humor, and odd reactions to the proposed “end of the world”… (despite it not really being an end just a new beginning).
I propose that we make tomorrow meaningful. That tomorrow, instead of the usual hustle and bustle, we make someone else’s day brighter. A random act of kindness on such a momentous day.
And let’s take it one step further and do a confession. We confess what we’ve been holding back to an unrequited love. So that if tomorrow really is the final day then we can die with no remorse… and if it isn’t, we can live free without regret.
Let’s truly make tomorrow a milestone and somehow, someway change the world at least for one stranger. Let’s make tomorrow about us, ALL OF US. Let’s make tomorrow a chance for final closures and a chance of truly new beginnings.

Die-hard republican climate denier breaks down in tears after seeing the climate change movie, Chasing Ice. This is her reaction just as she leaves the theater. The poor lady is trembling and crying as she apologizes to her children. Reblog if you can, thanks a lot!
If a Nat-Geo photographer is deeply impacted on a topic then the topic must be something urgent. And when something is urgent most Nat-Geo photographers KNOW how to deliver.

“Ohio really did go for President Obama last night, and he really did win. And he really was born in Hawaii. And he really is, legitimately, President of the United State - again. And the Bureau of Labor Statistics did not make up a fake unemployment rate last month. And the Congressional Research Center really can find no evidence that cutting taxes on rich people grows the economy. And the polls were not skewed to oversample democrats. And Nate Silver was not making up fake poll numbers about the election to try to make conservatives feel bad; Nate Silver was doing MATH. And climate change is real. And rape really does cause pregnancy, sometimes. And evolution is a thing. And Benghazi was an attack on us, it was not a scandal BY us. And nobody’s taking away anyone’s guns. And taxes have not gone up. And the deficit is dropping, actually. And Saddam Hussein did not have weapons of mass destruction. And the moon landing? Was real. And FEMA is not building concentration camps. And UN election observers are not taking over Texas. And moderate reforms on the regulations on the financial industries and the insurance industries in this country are not the same as communism. Listen. Last night was a good night for liberals and for democrats, for very obvious reasons. But it was also possibly a good night for this country as a whole. …But if the conservative movement and the conservative media and the republican party is stuck in a vacuum-sealed, door-locked, spin cycle of telling what makes them feel good, and denying the actual lived truth of the world, we are all deprived, as a nation, of the very debate between competing, feasible ideas about real problems. Last night the republicans got shellacked, and they had NO idea it was coming. And we saw them in real time - in real, humiliating time - not believe it even as it was happening to them. And unless they want to secede, they will need to pop the fictional bubble they have been so happily living inside, if they do not want to get shellacked again.”

reblogging because reasons
It feels good to write again.
inbarfink asked: How does your belief in an eternal soul that goes on to feel and remember after the brain is dead, fits with what's happening to people who's part of their brain was damaged as a result of, let's say, Alzheimer's disease? does the disease actually eat away their soul? do they get their memories back when they reach the afterlife?
Nothing that happens on earth can have any effect on the actual soul of a person. I wouldn’t say that mind and soul are exactly the same thing,...
