Some people think it is sexist to use blonde to refer to women, but the AP stylebook currently says to maintain the distinction between the two gendered forms of the word if you use it, and The Chicago Manual of Style also seems to uphold the difference. It doesn’t say so explicitly, but it uses the E-form for women in some example sentences.
Just Because I Am Blond
just because I am blond I’m not a dumb blond I’m not clueless I’m not unprofessional
just because I am blond I’m not lonely I’m not shy I’m not spoiled
just because I am blond I’m not a nerd I’m not perfect I’m not a source for a joke just because I am blond… look at me differently
During heart surgery, a highly trained group works as a team.
The cardiovascular surgeon heads up the surgery team and performs the key parts of the surgery.
The assisting surgeons follow the direction of the cardiovascular surgeon.
The cardiovascular anesthesiologist gives you the medicines that make you sleep during the surgery (called anesthesia) and monitors the ventilator, which breathes for you during surgery.
The perfusion technologists run the heart-lung machine.
The cardiovascular nurses are specially trained to assist in heart surgery.
Coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG), introduced in the 1960s, remains the standard revascularization treatment for complex coronary disease.1 The left internal thoracic artery, with its excellent patency when used as a graft, is the conduit of choice for anastomosis to the left anterior descending coronary artery.
“In some ways, what I do is as much art as it is science,” said Dr. Kirshbom. “Some hearts are missing parts or are put together the wrong way. That’s where the art comes in. Many of our operations require literal rebuilding of cardiac and vascular structures. As one of my colleagues says, each child is a custom job.”
I just listened to UNBROKEN yesterday. I enjoyed the lyrics so much that I could not stop listening to it over and over.
If you feel down, listen to this song (MUSICAL VIDEO below). Listen to other songs that would liberate your mind from pain, from feeling unworthy, sad, lonely. But do it as soon as possible. See, the longer you allow yourself to feel like you can not go on anymore, the longer will be for you to recuperate, to go back on your feet and “fight” the good fight, to live plenty.
So, do it today. Today is the day for you to pull yourself out of that hole without ladders. There is always a ladder. If you don’t think so, if you don’t see it, then YOU get it and put it on the wall of the deep hole and climb it up!
Creating wonderful art with nature is a masterpiece for the eyes to admire. It looks so good, would you eat it?
A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY:
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti was the first artist in the modern era to think of the preparation and consumption of food as art. The avant-garde Futurist movement, formed by Marinetti and other artists in Milan in 1909, embraced the industrial age and all things mechanical—from automobiles and planes to manufacturing methods and city planning. They thought cooking and dining, so central to everyone’s day-to-day lives, should also be central to their farsighted, far-out ideals.
Living is an art or is a path to destruction, and unfortunately the lack of love and compassion within the family structure is what triggers so much loneliness, depression and anxiety in many.
We are born, if we are lucky enough, to two loving parents who care about us so much to let us grow into kind, compassionate and successful human beings. But sometimes things go wrong: the family is dysfunctional, parents or children don’t care about each other. They become bitter and depressive, even when they finish graduate or post-graduate school; hey, maybe they even become rich, but no matter what they do in life unhappiness is always there.
These kind of frustrated person is the one that we should not become, it is the type of individual we all should avoid in our lives. They just drain the merriment out of us because it is the only way for them to find “joy”: when others are unhappy or unfortunate.
I would say to them: “Be happy, let others be joyful … let others live”
In Extremis: The Life and Death of the War Correspondent Marie Colvin
Marie Colvin, the headmost war reporter of her generation was killed in Syria in 2012 at age 56 by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). The world of journalism lost a great and iconoclastic correspondent, a fearless female who covered the most destructive global calamities of our times.
She lost an eye when she was reporting in Sri Lanka at the end of the civil war. She interviewed Gaddafi twice, and risked her life covering conflict in Chechnya, East Timor, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, and Zimbabwe.
Her personal life was highly interesting as it was her professional one: extremely motivated, bold and unpredictable. She married several times, drank heavily, suffered from PTSD and never allowed anyone to box her into what society expects from women’s roles.
Each day is born with a sunrise
and ends in a sunset, the same way we
open our eyes to see the light,
and close them to hear the dark.
You have no control over
how your story begins or ends.
But by now, you should know that
all things have an ending.
Every spark returns to darkness.
Every sound returns to silence.
And every flower returns to sleep
with the earth.
The journey of the sun
and moon is predictable.
is your ultimate

I had this vision in cmy head, way before our anniversary, of creating a video of our celebration, where I start with a short clip from our wedding and then “one year later…” will appear. I’m happy that my vision came to life and I’m able to share it with you guys! This is our…
Art doesn’t have frontiers nor limitations. Language shouldn’t be a barrier to stop us from enjoying the music coming from the instruments and the vocal cords of angelic singers who, like these two children, were born to sing. These exquisite singers are: Abraham Mateo and Caroline Costa.
