Bye for now, Myanmar family. Xx After myanmar 15 days tour, I have to come back home tomorrow. As for me, it's hard to forget our friendly Burmese friends. From Myanmar Discovery with love.
When it's bath time, I've been traveling all day with the kids in our myanmar in 5 days with Myanmar Discovery agent
, and the hubs is in Asia (I may have started with the Batman voice)
JACK HOANG TOURS is taking tourists from Malaysia to tour Pu Luong from Hanoi and drop by Cau Dat.
----------------------------As one of Dalat’s staple products. Cau Dat, around 20km from Dalat and 1,650 metres above sea level, is where the Vietnamese tea industry originated, with the Dalat Cau Dat Tea Company. Tea plantations from Holland and France were planted in 1922, and the French brought in the tea processing machines.
It was an honor to spend quality time today with tour Pu Luong 3 days in Vietnam http://puluongvietnam.com/pu-luong-tour-trekking/
We had the opportunity to share with him our personal story, from our West Point days to where we are now as entrepreneurs & network marketers, and how we believe in sharing the gift of wellness through nutritional superfoods across the nation one person at a time
We discussed how we build teams and foster entrepreneurship, which gives earning potential and thus spending power back to the individual, and how that has had a direct impact on the economy at both the community, state, and national level
Such an honor to meet someone that has given so much support to the veteran community
That being said as he was leaving I made sure to offer up a "Beat Navy" to make sure he hasn't forgotten about last year's 21-17 army win
The Mother of my 5 Children laid her life on the line time after time to carry and birth my children...I publicly and humbly say God Bless you and Thank you. Sometimes men miss the BIG PICTURE. A miracle is really the only way to describe motherhood and giving birth. It's unbelievable how God has made women and babies to endure and be able to do so much. A miracle, indeed. Such an incredible blessing.
Men may say mean things out of anger but today & forever I publicly stand by this STATEMENT!
I'm thankful Allah choose me to get up and Pray Fajr because some days I didn't care about making prayer at all...now I don't miss any. Very thankful....i feel blessed ....Al HUMDULILLAH
Being 6'8" 380 pounds I find lot of women making inappropriate size jokes....I consider that sexual harassment but since I'm a man it's often overlooked and if I complain I'm looked at like I'm weak....smh Every man is not thirsty some of us find sexual advances VERY OFFENSIVE just like women do.

Refs and O’Korn tried to give it to Indiana. Higdon and the Defense would not allow that to happen. Everyone complaining about Speight just saw the two worst back-to-back QB performances I can recall for any team. And was that a record for penalties against one team?
O’Korn looks completely lost. Easily could have thrown another 2-3 picks today. Continues to make the wrong read. Throws into double or triple coverage. Hurries out of pocket before he has to. Etc.
Michigan has a week to either fire OC, bench O’Korn, or both. Otherwise they’re getting killed by Penn State. #GoBlue 〽️
Happy Birthday Hannah Arendt!
Here are the top ten things I think she got right:
1. Race-thinking precedes racism. Arendt’s analysis of the rise of totalitarianism is a mammoth book, but the basic argument is simple: you can’t hate Jews for their race until you think of the fundamental flaw with Judaism in racial terms. Thus, race-thinking comes before racism. Before race-thinking, Europeans hated Jews for completely different reasons: religion! You don’t exterminate other religions, you convert them. But once you have race-thinking, you can create justifications not just for anti-Semitism but for colonialism, imperialism, and chattel slavery of Africans.
2. The Holocaust happened because Europeans started treating each other the way they treated indigenous peoples in the rest of the world. Europeans learned to think racially in the colonization of Africa, and the European model for dealing with resistance involved murderous concentration camps. Thus, when race-thinking eventually returned as a form of governance in the European continent, so too did the concentration camps.
3. Totalitarianism is largely caused by the growth of a class of “superfluous” people who no longer have a role in their economy. In an industrializing society, much traditional work can now be done with fewer workers. One possible solution to this oversupply of workers is to put some of that surplus labor force to work monitoring, policing, and murdering the rest.
4. Ideologues ignore counter-evidence. A very good way to understand ideology is as a logical system for avoiding falsification. There are alternatives theories of ideology that aren’t immune to counter-evidence but instead merely exert constant pressure: for instance, there’s a difference between what Fox News does and what Vox does, and Arendt’s account is more useful for criticizing Fox’s constant spinning than Vox’s technocratic neoliberalism. But Arendt supplied us a useful account of ideology that is closest to our standard use and our current need.
5. The language of human rights is noble and aspirationally powerful. However, statelessness renders most rights claims worthless in practical terms and in most judicial institutions. Someone who must depend on her rights as a “man” or a human is usually worse off in legal terms than an ordinary criminal.
6. You don’t discover yourself through introspection. You discover yourself through action. The main set of claims she made in The Human Condition about the role of public and political life strikes me as pretty important, especially insofar as it denigrates economic and racial identity politics. Think of the cocktail party version of this: on meeting a new person, some people will ask, “Where do you work?” in order to get to know them, identifying them through their profession, their economic role. Others will ask: “What are you into?” as if to say that our recreation and consumption is what defines us. But for Arendt, the appropriate question is: “What have you done? What do you stand for?”
7. If you take that seriously, “identity” politics is frustratingly restrictive. A person is not defined merely by the class or race they come from: they are defined by the principles upon which they act. While it is often necessary to step into the political sphere as a representative of Jews or women–and Arendt acknowledged that this becomes unavoidable when one is attacked as a woman or a Jew–the best kind of politics allows us to enter the political sphere as ourselves, not knowing what we will discover about those selves until we have acted. So the need for identity politics is an indication of larger injustices: we respond as members of our groups when systematic and institutional forces oppress us as members of these groups.
8. Revolutions that aim for political goals are more likely to succeed than revolutions that aim for economic goals. Misery is infinite and thus insatiable; political equality is comparatively easy to achieve. Thus it’s important to connect economic complaints to a deprivation of political equality: the important problem with white supremacy, for instance, is not that whites “have” more than Blacks, but that we count for more, that it is uncontroversial that “White Lives Matter.” (Though an important indication of that “counting for more” is that white people have more than Blacks because we continually plunder Black people and are able to get away with it systematically.)
9. Philosophy as a discipline is fundamentally at odds with politics. This is a problem for political philosophy, and it helps to explain why so much of political philosophy is hostile to politics and tries to subsume the agonistic nitty-gritty of the public sphere under rules of coherence and expert knowledge. This is because thinking as an activity is a withdrawal from active life, and especially politics: the fundamental conflict between the eternal and the ephemeral is not one that can be usefully bridged, and most often those encounters are pernicious for both thinkers and doers.
10. Work and labor are different. Some activities are repetitive and exhausting, and only biological necessity forces us to continue them. Some activities make the world and our lives within it meaningful and fruitful. Many people have economic roles that mix the two activities, but still and all they are distinct. What’s more, there’s no shame in wishing and working for a world without labor, perhaps a world of automation. But a world without work would be fundamentally meaningless.
11. Evil is not complicated, so don’t overthink it.
So the other day ww3 broke out on my page because i got honest about my struggle between race and comedy and feeling like i've not come down hard enough on people at times when they've said something that is fuckin racist (or even a little racist with or without realizing). i had a chat with a friend last night and tried to make sense of what happened. i think the jyst of the situation was that i wasn't clear enough in the post. i made an honest statement about having inner judgments about something like "non-binary gender identification" and said at first you judge something like that and then you think "maybe i just don't understand this yet" and then you move on saying "fuck it". let me clarify this now. i never treat anyone differently- i've occasionally heard about someone doing this particular thing and it seems to me that they are doing it in much the same way that girls identified as "bisexual" just because they made out with another girl while some gross bros drank beer around them during that whole "girls gone wild" horror show that was happening years ago. i'm sorry, that's not "bisexual" honey and you DESERVE my judgment because what you are doing is appropriating a term for attention that other people struggle with because it is TRULY a part of their sexual
of COURSE not everyone is doing this- and really it's not my business. so my "fuck it" was not saying "move on continuing to judge" it was saying "move on not addressing this particular thing until you have more information".
the other piece that came up with my friend last night was the fact that i make fun of white people and girls like myself more than anyone else. the hashtag WPS and "white people sports" and "1st world and "hipsterchickshit" are more a part of my vernacular than maybe they should be... but at the same time i UNDERSTAND that all pain is relative- when you look at the origins of movements like the skinhead thing in the u.k. or nationalism here it does come out of "poor oppression" not WHITE oppression- those people just happened to be white and somehow aren't seeing the issue clearly- they want to blame minorities for the class oppression they are experiencing. i suppose my being a bit gentle with people had been a result of having empathy for EVERYONE. my own background (young childhood) was split between the poor white world AND the poor hispanic- i was also living in a very affluent community as an adolescent and my close girlfriends had wealth and privilege- i lived in neighborhoods where i had friends of all races that were poor but then i would go to their houses and see the other side. those girls STILL had pain and problems they were just DIFFERENT problems and relative pain. you can't discount someone's experience because it seems to you it isn't painful enough. this is where i get conflicted around the "white privilege" thing- because OF COURSE it exists! but that doesn't mean that white people, ALL people aren't having just as bad a time of it- "life is hard princess, anyone who says differently is selling something"
this article is harsh but kinda nails it. i'm probably somewhat a "becky" of some combination of these. that doesn't thrill me. the idea that we can ever be 100% truly free of our own race and conditioning is a lofty goal... but it's a journey and one i hope everyone else is thoughtfully taking too...
An Bang is different. After a long bicycle ride, you will see a smoky blue hue. But it is time to walk through the shops outside, set foot down the fine white sand and step down to the beach, your soul is really overwhelmed by what is spread out before your eyes. The wide, blue sky, of water, like the generous pen strokes painted on a large canvas. Sandy beach stretches endlessly like an ivory silk strip. But the best thing is that the beach is always deserted, the sound of the murmur is not as loud as Cua Dai. Find great value Vietnam holidays with us: http://vietnambeachholiday.net/
You will ask, what is the deserted beach? Yes, it really is not fun if you do not find the joy of that solitude. I was tired of crowded beaches. So I love the quiet of this place and I believe many other young people too. But this is not An Bang totally desolate.
Why is birth control controversial?
Although I do find it interesting that Obamacare offers birth control to all women with no copay, but vision care only to children. I guess if G-d had wanted drivers to see, He would make glasses fall from heaven like manna.
About to start our 3 day wedding weekend. So many emotions and excitement. I LOVE these three couples so much and yes, I can't wait to capture their day! But I have a request. Some of you might think this is silly but I don't and I firmly believe in the power of prayer and my Saturday and Sunday wedding's weather is not looking too good. Will you please pray for it clear up? Also, I'm battling major sinus and allergies issues and can you pray for relief? I know God is in control but I trust Him for strength but there is always power in numbers! As for my fellow togs who have a crazy weekend, I'm praying for you all too! We can do this this friends! What a privilege and joy to do this job! Let's go capture some stories! #juliepaisleyphotography #weddingday
I can't really even begin to put into words what I experienced in the last three days, with over 100 photographers from all over the country. What had started as a dream has somehow become reality. With the help with my friends Jonathan Canlas Julie Hinson Paisley and Belinda Fanjul Olsen, we set out to create a brand new educational platform specifically for hybrid & film photographers. A year later, the first ever The Hybrid Collective was born.
A year of planning, dreaming, worrying, has somehow brought all of us together. We laughed, we cried, we learned from each other. It was the best experience I could have ever asked for. I want to thank all the photographers that put their trust in our inaugural conference; trusting that we will provide an unforgettable experience. Really, to all of you, thank you for believing in us. I am forever grateful.
I want to also thank all the amazing speakers, KT Merry, Ginny Au, Caroline Tran, Lauren Fair, Julie Hinson Paisley, Yan Palmer, Heather Nan Parkinson, Jonathan Canlas, and Kirk Mastin. For sharing your heart, your talent, and your knowledge.
All the generous sponsors, ProDPI, Fujifilm / 富士フイルム, Kodak, The FIND Lab, Dekora Album Co, Pixellu SmartAlbums, Matchology, Strawberry Revolution, Mastin Labs.
We all had one goal; which is to push the industry forward, and help cultivate the next generation of film photographers. I am proud to say we accomplished just that.
See you all next year!

Wrapping up my time at The Hybrid Collective and I have learned SO SO much. Finding truth and authenticity in my work is something I strive for, but often get lost in the comparison game or just not knowing which direction to take my business next.
Can't wait to come back to implement everything I have FELT and learned.
Special shout out to all of the amazing speakers and teachers for putting on one hell of a conference and for leaving me feeling so inspired to make positive changes for my business...
Julie Hinson Paisley Jonathan Canlas Kirk Mastin Jeremy Chou Caroline Tran Lauren Fair Heather Nan Parkinson Ginny Au KT Merry and Yan Palmer. Truly, the information you guys all shared was invaluable. <3

Feeling so blessed this week (and every week!). Speaking in front of 500 wedding professionals yesterday in Vegas was so much fun and I'm so grateful that the Wedding MBA continues to have me at their amazing conference each year! Today, my styled shoot with country singer RaeLynn and Jason Aldean's wife, Brittany Aldean along with Julie Paisley Photography and Colonial House of Flowers is published INTERNATIONALLY in the amazing Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Abroad magazine and is on shelves today! The magazine can be found in every Barnes & Noble in the US and dozens of other countries. Such a great week!! Life is great
It just occurred to me why all these white mass murders are never called terrorist- just a theory-But if we were to call the Las Vegas shooter a "terrorist", we might actually have to do something about the 2nd Amendment and impose sensible gun laws. Call him what he is, a terrorist.
