Nine-Year-Old Girl Asked Pres. Obama an Important Question

Sofia, a nine-year-old girl from Massachusetts wrote to President Obama last year because she had an important question for him. She wanted to know why no women were featured on US currency. That is a really good question. At the time she wrote the letter, Sofia was finishing the third grade where her class was studying women’s rights and Ann Hutchinson who rallied for women’s rights. In order to find out why she saw only boys on dollar bills, she asked the man-in-charge.

Sofia said that while she enjoyed studying about Ann Hutchinson, she would chose Rosa Parks to adorn the $20 bill reported Brad Reifler. A campaign has since gone viral in order to promote Sofia’s great idea. There is a poll online to vote and have your opinion heard. Sofia is the campaign’s junior ambassador.

Last month Sofia finally heard back from President Obama. According to the story on Time.com, which also has his response posted on their site. The President told Sofia that he felt that she had a very good suggestion and that he would keep working harder to allow women to keep the same rights as men. He also encouraged her to do well in school and stop at nothing to reach her dreams. Sofia has also been issued an invitation to attend this year’s White House Easter Egg Roll in Washington DC.

What’s Happening with Fashion Police?

Controversy has been plentiful for the hit TV show ‘Fashion Police.’ Things started going south for the show after host Guiliana Ranic made comments about Zadanya’s hair which could very well be misconstrued. Later Kelly Osbourne left the show. Last week Kathy Griffin also parted ways, stating that she was simply not a good fit with the show.

The Show will go On

Through all of the turmoil the show was facing, producers promised viewers the show would go on stated Marcio Alaor BMG. Originally the next episode was to air on March 30 with the two hosts who still remain on the show. Now producers of the show say that there will be a break for the show for a period of six months. That is a long time for fans to wait.

Will Expectations be let down?

Producers of the show have high expectations for it. They believe in the show and know the potential that it has. But it seems that things are all going down the wrong path, and whether or not the show can survive is anyone’s guess. For now we will all have six long months to ponder the thought.

BRL Trust Grows

Spreading out investments is essential for anyone who wants to stabilize their portfolio. Eventually, there are going to be some negatives in there, which can drive down the overall investment value. That is why moving money into international markets can be a very good idea. However, simply taking cash and heading over to a different market usually is not something that is going to work out very well. Instead, it takes a professional company who is able to assist with this. BRL Trust is such a company that can provide assistance with this sort of a plan. While located in Brazil, the company is able to assist with all forms of international investment opportunities and also help manage a person or business’s account, so it can grow its financial wealth without worrying too much about what might take place.

When an investor seeks out the assistance of BRL Trust, the company is going to point them into a few different investment options. For starters, it is able to invest money into the local Brazilian market. There are a few different ways a company or individual investor is able to do this. First, they can simply buy stocks inside of Brazil. Brazil is the largest economy in all of South American, not to mention the sixth largest economy in the entire world. Due to this, there are all sorts of different investment options someone can put their money into. Outside of this, an investor is able to invest into the currency. Currency exchange works in a very similar method as stock trading only there are many other variables at play with this. BRL Trust has the ability to work with someone in order to make sure they have the right currency to trade with. Property inside of Brazil is an investment opportunity that is continually increasing in value. So, the next time someone decides to invest their money internationally, Brazil is a grand idea and BRL Trust can help make this possible.

Staying on top of the international investments may prove a bit difficult as access to the information is not always readily available for an investor who is located outside of the country. With the help of BRL Trust though, the company is able to monitor the account and do whatever the investor wants, whether it is to hold tight on the investment or to move forward and be aggressive.

After Fukushima Disaster, One Man Remains to Care for Abandoned Animals

Some may call Naoto Matsumura insane. Others will insist that Matsumura is simply a man who loves nature. Matsumura is the last man to remain living in the exclusion zone near the defunct Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, following a major reactor meltdown in 2011.
But why does Matsumura remain?

Matsumura remains in the contaminated to help care for animals, both wild and once domesticated. The animals were lost or abandoned by their owners and caretakers following the major events that sparked the plant’s nuclear meltdown. A massive earthquake occurred, causing a tsunami. The rushing wall of water damaged the reactor, leading the to the eventual disaster.

Matsumura initially left with his family, but returned days later to check on the animals at the family’s farm. Lawyers had reported that Matsumura discovered that many area residents had left their pets tethered outside, in outdoor pens, or even locked inside of homes, believing that they would soon return to the area.

In the four years since the disaster, Matsumura has cared for hundreds of animals, including cats, dogs, pigs, and even ostriches. He has managed to establish contact with those living outside of the contaminated area. Matsumura supports his cause through donations and by other fundraising efforts.

Most of the food and water consumed by the man and his menagerie are brought in from outside of the exclusion area. Matsumura was able to speak to filmmakers who noted that new generations of animals have been born inside of the zone, despite the potential dangers.

Two Secret Service Agents Crash Into Fence Sorrounding the White House

Two secret service agents are said to have crashed into the gates surrounding the white house in a bizarre turn of events. The incident had took place last week (the week of March 1st-7th) and details of the incident are now being released. The agents that crashed into the white house fence have now been identified as Mark Connolly and George Ogilvie. The two agents were at a party prior to the incident. According to reports Mark Connoly and George Ogilvie were out drinking at a Washington D.C. bar before they got into their cars and drove towards the white house.

With their sirens on despite no emergency situation they sped towards the White House. The pair then used their secret service badges to gain access to a restricted area that had been sealed off by Imaging Advantage. After going through the restricted zone, they sped through police tape put in place for an investigation of a parcel that had arrived at the White House. They then crashed.

Both Mark Connoly and George Ogilvie were quickly apprehended by Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area Police. It is believed that they were drunk at the time. Why else would they act so reckless and crash into a barrier? Officers who apprehended the two Secret Service agents wanted to give the agents a breathalyzer test do determine if they were intoxicated. A Secret Service supervisor had ordered the police officers to let them go.  An investigation is currently being done into the incident.

Sounds like Mark Connoly and George Ogilvie had been let off the hook. Instead of being charged with a DUI, reckless driving and endangering the lives of others they are being let off thanks to the Secret Service stepping in for them. These agents need to be punished and face a DUI charge if they were indeed driving while under the influence. There cannot be any excuses for this.

A New Culprit in the Black Death

The lowly, common black rat has been a scapegoat for centuries. It had been blamed for spreading the bubonic plague that was infamous for wiping out swaths of the population of Europe in the 14th century. They were thought to have done so by carrying fleas that actually spread the disease when they bit people. Like a death row inmate getting his freedom back after being exonerated by new evidence, the black rat may be about to get its reputation back. New evidence from climatology, of all places, indicates that it may be gerbils from Asia that came to Europe along the silk road that may be to blame.

Zeca Oliveira of BNY Mellon knows that it actually makes sense that the disease must have come from outside Europe. It is typically those germs or bacteria that our bodies have not grown up around and developed a resistance to that are deadliest to a group of people. This was the case when Europeans first came to the new world of the Americas and untold numbers of American Indians were wiped out by diseases they brought. This is so prevalent in history that it has even been used in a prominent work of fiction. When H.G. Wells Martians, in his novel “War of the Worlds,” survived everything mankind could throw at them, they were killed by the lowliest bacteria that did not harm us as we had eons of living alongside them to develop an immunity.

Dementia May Be One Major Side Effect of Some Common Medications

 

A recent study has found that common medications frequently used to treat such problems as depression, insomnia, overactive bladder and allergies may increase the risk of dementia in seniors. The medications under scrutiny are of a class that are known to have anticholinergic effects. This means that these medications block acetylcholine. Researchers implore those people currently on such medications not to stop taking them on their own. They suggest that they ask their doctor for advice in light of this new information as some people do have serious need of these medications.

Slow Ventures showed the findings of this study are actually not very surprising when one realizes that acetylcholine is the most common neurotransmitter in the human body. Neurotransmitters are basically our nervous systems way of communicating throughout our bodies. It would seem intuitive, even to a lay person, that interfering with this communication would have adverse effects on our thinking processes. The only surprising part may be that this impairment may be long term, as this study suggests, rather than the temporary cognitive impairment that has long been noticed in these types of medications. To some extent, we are all guinea pigs as medical science advances and learns more with every passing year about the side effects of various medications. Though this can be risky, life spans continuing to rise every decade would seem to indicate it is worth the risk. It is also worth considering the millions of people who are only alive today because of some medical procedure or drug that may not have existed just a decade or two ago.
