Denver Area: Dancing Fundraiser to Support Bamboo! Friday, June 12 6 pm

Globe Gazers

Eric and I have been looking for ways that we can support Nepal. One of the ideas I came up with was to use Zumba as an avenue to raise some money to help support the villagers of Bamboo. Click here to read our Earthquake story and learn how this village saved our life.

Margie Krest of Dancing the Soul has graciously agreed to host and support this event. I taught Zumba at Dancing the Soul for several years before I headed out on our RTW journey. It is a wonderful studio in Denver that offers many modalities of movement and stillness. I’m so pleased that this wonderful community has agreed to help support Nepal!

On Friday, June 12 from 6-8 pm, we will have an event called Move for Nepal. It will feature several types of movement including Qigong, Belly Dancing, and Zumba. Two other instructors will…

When the Internet Saves Lives[courtesy: The Huffington Post]

Imagine if you lost your Internet service. Picture having no email capability or access to Net-based information for days, even weeks. Yikes! How would the loss of the Internet affect your daily work?

But now let’s thicken the plot. Imagine if your job were the emergency feeding of millions of people following a natural disaster. You would need to organize and communicate quickly and effectively with others. At this point the Internet is far more than just a luxury or convenience. Lives depend on it.

The UN World Food Programme (WFP), the largest hunger-relief organization, makes Internet connectivity a top priority when disaster strikes. Basic Internet, which many of us take for granted, is often damaged or not available in afflicted, impoverished areas.

After the earthquake in Nepal last month, WFP quickly dispatched a team of technical experts to restore Internet communications. They are called the Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC).

This elite team allows WFP and partner agencies to have Internet capability as they help earthquake victims. This enhanced communication helps fuel the effort to feed millions of people. This leads to food in the hands of a hungry child. It means WFP rations delivered to a family that has lost all its food supplies and income.

The better the communication, the more effective the relief response. WFP officer Mariko Hall explains:

The response community needs Internet for uploading assessment data, for example, and ordering relief supplies. They use our services for communicating with their teams in other field locations, with Kathmandu and also their international headquarters. They also use our connectivity for communicating with their families, which helps them to maintain pace in these challenging situations.

Samaritan’s Purse, one of the charities operating in Nepal, says the Internet is their lifeline. It helps them speed the delivery of aid. In the days after the quake, Samaritan’s Purse said, “For people so hungry that they have been digging scraps of food out of the rubble, there was no time to waste.”

Daniella Malave, Programme Coordinator with Samaritan’s Purse, says:

With the internet, we can communicate with headquarters to swiftly make decisions, or with heads of different districts and other NGOs to coordinate the response. It is crucial that we all have access to the same information, and work from the same information, to avoid duplication and ensure the best response possible.

After the earthquake hit Nepal, many roads were damaged and filled with debris. This poses a huge problem for moving food aid around the country.

The WFP logistics website and mailing list keeps tracks of which roads are open or closed. The relief agencies can access this information, including maps. This helps plan how to move the food aid most efficiently and quickly to where it’s needed.

WFP relies entirely on voluntary donations to provide food aid and these crucial Internet services. It’s vital that the international community provide the funds so that this humanitarian aid may be available.

The Internet is an amazing tool for communication. We see the best example of this in the conflict and disaster zones of the world. For when it matters the most, Internet communication is literally a lifesaver.

Bernard Shaw and his witty comments……………..

Once Bernard Shaw was in  a social gathering of many prominent personalities of the society. There one actress was also invited. Seeing the eminent writer the actress was so mesmerized that she proposed him for marriage. Confused, Shaw asked lady the reason behind her proposal. Then the actress said “if we get married, our children will be as beautiful as me and as intellectual as you.” Bernard Shaw chuckled and said “what if the things get reversed? like my look and your brain?” The actress kept silent.

when Gublet Galabala was young…………

She had a legendary friendship with legend Madam Castafiore. [much unknown to the readers].

They had so much identical resemblance that people sometimes used to mistake her for her.[please help yourself to understand which “her” stands for whom]. Then in rain they started singing one of the   “much awaited”[read fabricated] songs………..

Actually the song should be sung like this  14 or sometimes like this.23

But due to distance they sang like the way it filmed. Different country, different gesture you know!
