Beloved Actor Robin Williams, Dead at 63; possible suicide. R.I.P.

The Marin County Sheriff’s Office-Coroner Division reported the death of famous actor, Robin McLaurin Williams this morning. The incident happened in the morning of August 11, at 12:02 pm. The initial report indicated a possible suicide but the investigation will commence in the near future.
The body was discovered at his residence in Tiburon, California at around 11:55 am.
A final report will answer all the questions surrounding the tragedy. It was known that the actor was battling depression and drug abuse. The family of the deceased request a moment of respect to allow them to cope with such horrible misfortune.
The report has shocked the acting community and many received the news with sadness and bewilderment.
The actor had always struggled with alcoholism and substance abuse; just recently, he committed himself into a rehab facility called "The Lodge" to maintain sobriety.
He was well known for his comedic roles and many serious characters where he received accolades for his outstanding performance.
Robin Williams was especially known for his role in many inspiring movies such as, "Dead Poets Society," "Patch Adams," "Mrs. Doubtfire," "Good Morning Vietnam," "Good Will Hunting," "What Dreams may Come," and TV shows like Mork & Mindy.
He was nominated four times to the Academy Awards and won an Oscar in 1998 for his unforgettable supporting acting role in the movie "Good Will Hunting."
Mr. Williams was a spectacular, and at times controversial, stand up comedian dedicated to his craft and performance. It is a sad tragedy how Hollywood lost a great individual that made us laugh, cry, and sometimes think about our place in life.
Rest In Peace Mr. Williams, laugh your way through eternity...
You will forever be missed.

The White House Summit for Working Families: Time for Equality & Fairness

In the summer of 2014, The White House, in partnership with the Department of Labor and the Center for American Progress, hosted a progressive summit. It was held with the purpose of starting a national conversation about women in the workplace, equality and fairness in the workplace, equal pay, and raising the minimum wage.   
The summit was attended by Americans from all walks of life. Business women, entrepreneurs, advocates, labor leaders, economists, CEOs, bloggers, legislators, and activists; even the President and his staff.
The summit focused on creating a 21st century workplace that works for all Americans. 
President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, CEOs, Legislators, economist, and everyday Americans spoke about their experiences and suggestions to help working families. 
It is time for Americans to have equal pay and equal rights and the President agrees.  "As President, my top priority is rebuilding an economy where everybody who works hard has the chance to get ahead." he said.
Working families are faced with many challenges and it is time for a real change...
Together we can make it happen :)

Florida Women & Families Economic Security Summit: Remarkable women sharing powerful messages



On Saturday 7th 2014, Center for American progress hosted one of the most powerful women’s summits in the state of Florida.  Women from everywhere in the state participated and shared with one another their experiences and strategized on ways to help empower other women to make their voice heard.

From media training to engaging young people, all speakers presented their ideas or experiences to help strengthen the presence of women in our government and to unite, making Florida a more progressive and fair state.

The attendees were honored to listen to many phenomenal women who displayed knowledge, respect, and encouragement.





Here are some of the most impact:

Viviana Janer

One of the many faces of the Hispanic community in Osceola County and running for the position of County Commissioner District 2, she spoke about the importance of consistence and hard work.  She is running to make a difference and to help her community.

Pat Schroeder

American politician who represented Colorado in The United States House of Representatives from 1973 to 1997.  Schroeder was the first woman elected to congress from Colorado.  She spoke about her experiences and encouraged women to keep the fight to make our voices heard.

Regina Hill

Orlando City Commissioner and a veteran of The United States Navy; Hill is working to help her community and to empower the women to progress and reach their potential.  She is outspoken, intelligent, and courageous; a fighter for women’s rights.


Kathleen Voss Woolrich

She is a tireless advocate who struggles with a deteriorating condition but who does not stop the fight to change the legislature’s refusal to expand health care access.  Having her best friend, Charlene Dill, die due to a lack of access to prescription medication for a very treatable condition, encouraged her to continue her fight and to educate others in the process. 

The summit was interesting and it was a great platform to empower Floridian Women…

Thanks to all these strong women, who are full of honor and bravery; the true heroes of our generation.

Can this be The REAL Reason Flight 370 Disappeared?


“The two aims of the Party are to conquer the whole surface of the earth and to extinguish once and for all the possiblity of independent thought. There are therefore two great problems which the Party is concerned to solve. One is how to discover against his will what another human being is thinking and the other is how to kill several hundred million people in a few seconds without giving warning beforehand.” 
― George Orwell1984

TELEVISION- The Good, the Bad, and the Inevitable

Television is one of the most significant inventions of our time.

When I think of television and the power of this invention, memories of growing up without it come to mind.  Before TV was invented, life was about doing outdoor activities, creating, interacting with other people, and learning from real everyday life events.  

Then came television and its seductive entertainment and manipulation of our brain. TV has been able to transform each one of us into non-thinking zombies.  Television has the power to change minds, opinions, to make people indifferent, and to keep everyone stagnant.   
The power that comes with having the world's attention is scary.  Television has been able to start and stop wars, keep the world informed and misinformed, and transform the world into a gullible puppet.  

Regardless of all opinions about television, some will say that there are positive aspects of the invention, such as the ability to educate.  This invention has helped people from all walks of life, which have not been able to travel the world, learn about other cultures, and see how similar we humans are. TV can teach us about plants, animals, the universe, different skills, and many other subjects.  Moreover TV, via entertainment, can make a routine life more bearable and exciting. It can also encourage imagination and bring families together.   
However, there are some negative aspects that cannot be overlooked.   Television unfortunately encourages indifference and laziness, discourages knowledge-seeking behavior and thought, and increases obesity and violence amongst its viewers.  Having your mind fed constantly with information, images of violence, and entertainment can be desensitizing.  

The constant feed of information can succor people to lose their ability to differentiate between fantasy and reality; it creates a new perception of the truth.  

To concatenate my thoughts, television is an amazing invention that changed the world and brought us together with its charm.  It is a secret weapon with the ability to make the world chaos, a consumable drug that no one can stop. It has the ability to make the world its best or its worst.
