Memes, Roger, and Sex: Florida Executes First White Man Convicted Of Killing Black Man @balleralert Florida Executes First White Man Convicted Of Killing Black Man - blogged by @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, August 24th, Florida broke its own history. The state, for the first time ever, executed a white man for killing a black man since the death penalty was reinstated 47 years ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fifty-three-year-old Mark James Asay – a former white supremacist gang member – was executed by lethal injection for two racially motivated, and premeditated murders he committed on the same day in Jacksonville in 1987. He was convicted by a jury in 1988 with a vote of nine to three. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ His two victims were Robert Lee Booker, 34, (African American) and Roger McDowell, 26, (white-Hispanic). After making multiple racial comments, Booker was shot, prosecuters said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ McDowell was a cross-dresser who was white and Hispanic at the time of his Murder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to officials, Asay hired McDowell for oral sex and shot him six times once he discovered his gender. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even though Asay is the first white man to be executed in Florida for killing a Black man, there have been at least 20 Black men who have been executed for killing white victims since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, according to research from the Death Penalty Information Center. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Asay was pronounced dead at 6:22pm at the state prison at Starke.

Lawyer, Memes, and New York: A Defender of the Constitution, With No Legal Right to Live Here Lizbeth Mateo in her office in a day laborer center in Pasadena. Ms. Mateo, now a lawyer, was born in Mexico and has lived in the United States for years as an undocumented immigrant. EMILY BERL FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES Last month, Ms. Mateo was officially sworn in as a lawyer, taking an oath to uphold the United States Constitution. After years of flaunting her status as undocumented and openly defying immigration law, she is now part of the legal system and hopes to represent clients who, like her, entered the United States illegally. LOS ANGELES — She spends her days preparing legal strategies to help undocumented immigrants stay in the country. But at any moment, Lizbeth Mateo could be picked up for deportation herself. She is an immigration lawyer with her own immigration lawyer. Last month, Ms. Mateo was officially sworn in as a lawyer, taking an oath to uphold the United States Constitution. After years of flaunting her status as undocumented and openly defying immigration law, she is now part of the legal system and hopes to represent clients who, like her, entered the United States illegally. Allowing undocumented immigrants to work as lawyers is a sign of just how far the acceptance of such immigrants has come in places like California. When Kevin de León, the leader of the California State Senate, presided over Ms. Mateo’s swearing-in ceremony, he called her the embodiment of the American dream. But Ms. Mateo is setting out to practice law in a new era: President Trump, whose vows to seal off the border with a wall energized supporters, has made clear that all undocumented immigrants could be deported. Some immigrants have responded by going into hiding while others prepare to return home. Source: NY Times

Memes, Scream, and Focus: IF YOU LISTEN TO YOUR BODY WHEN IT WHISPERS, YOU WIONT HAVE TO HEAR IT SCREAM PROJECT APPINES Regram @projecthappiness_org ☜ 20 minutes of meditation has been proven to lower stress hormones of upwards of 800%. Stress is arguably the number one cause of disease in our world as it encumbers our immunological system across the board, making other illnesses achieve a foothold and spread from there. Lowering said stress hormone levels is therefore our primary focus as a novice meditator. There is really no point doing mantras, mudras or chanting before this has been self-mastered, this feeling of abundant stillness, this centering. Yes, a mantra can still alleviate the conscious foci to remain centered. And yes, a mudra is an expression of meditative intent that when used properly can greatly alter the experiences during the meditative state. But before we are solemly calm, these things are mere "unknowables", the mind cannot know these assistants, for they are not "knowledge" to be applied, they are vehicles of consciousness more so, and you wouldn't strap a toddler into a spaceship before he learnt some spatial awareness, would you? So just sit. Breathe. 🙏 Focus on the sensation of drawing breath. ⚜ The sensation your body has to go through in order to do so. ☥ This will bring you to the center, from which point you will be able to understandably apply whichever vehicle or auditory imbiber. ✡ 1ove 💓 awakespiritual meditation still water upon the infinite ocean create the wave awake spiritual ascension enlightenment

Apparently, Family, and Head: Boy Dies After Daycare Worker Leaves Him in Nursery Van for Nearly 12 Hours @balleralert Boy Dies After Daycare Worker Leaves Him in Nursery Van for Nearly 12 Hours – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, a three-year-old boy died after being left in a hot van outside a day care center for nearly 12 hours in the Florida heat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, MylesHill was apparently forgotten by a day care employee, during a trip between two centers run by Little Miracles Academy in Orlando. After the staff worker failed to do a head count, Hill remained trapped inside the parked car as the sweltering heat brought temperatures to nearly 95 degrees. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It wasn’t until Hill’s grandmother phoned authorities, nearly 11 hours later, to report her grandson missing, when he was not dropped off at her home. When officials arrived back at the center, they found the three-year-old unresponsive in the daycare van. He was confirmed dead at the scene. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although criminal charges are pending against the worker responsible, she has been very cooperative with officials, as police say she is still very upset about what happened. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, the child’s family has called for the nursey to be shut down. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hill would have turned 4 later this month.

Dieting, Energy, and Food: IG: CONSCIOUSVIBRANCY Periodic fasting can help clear up the mind and strengthen the body and the spirit Fasting can help you to renew your body and your mind and to deepen your awareness of the spirit within you. On a physical level, as your body gets rid of toxins and has the opportunity to renew and recharge itself, many even seemingly incurable health problems will simply dissolve. Dr. Oda Birchinger who supervised over 70,000 fasts, pointed out that fasting can heal and help rheumatism in the joints and muscles, circulatory problems, skin diseases, allergies, respiratory problems, eye problems, to name just a few. Dr. Tanner who fasted for 53 days when he was 77 years old discovered among other things that his thin, grey hair was replaced with new black hair, the same color he had as a young man. On a mental level, fasting will help you to get rid of worries, fears and anxieties. It will also help you to get rid of all sorts of addictions. On a spiritual level, not only will your awareness of the spirit within you deepen, but as different energy centers open and balance, different powers will begin to emerge spontaneously from within you. The difference between dieting and spiritual fasting is that while you are engaged in spiritual fasting, and are abstaining from food, you are focusing your thoughts on that which is eternal within you. By directing your attention to that which is eternal within you, through meditation, chanting, heartfelt prayer or by repeating spiritual affirmations throughout the day, you will discover that you can go for a long time without food and still not feel hungry, because you will be absorbing the energy directly through breathing and through the energy center on top of your head. ⚠️Note: If you are interested in fasting, please do your fair share of research prior to engaging in the practice! I've been fasting for many years. I intermittent fast daily and I have reaped an endless amount of benefits from it on all levels of my being. But it is not something to blindly engage in, so please approach this practice with respect and educate yourself thoroughly before attempting to engage in something you are unfamiliar with.
