5 yr old helps homeless/ FHRITP scandal

May 20 5 yr old helps homeless: I found this on Yahoo news "5-Year-Old's Touching Act of Kindness Toward Homeless Man":

Sometimes among all of the incessant “Why? Why? Whys?” that your average 5-year-old asks comes a question that stops you in your tracks. That’s what happened for mother Ava Faulk a few weeks ago heading into the Prattville, Ala., Waffle House for dinner with her 5-year-old son, Josiah Duncan. 

“We saw a man who was dirty, holding a bag with his bike outside,” she told WSFA 12 News, adding that she explained to Duncan that she thought the man may have been homeless. That one word opened the floodgate of big questions from the little boy including, “What does that mean?” followed by, “’Where is his house? Where is his family? Where does he keep his groceries?’”

The boy urged his mom to buy the man dinner — then sang him a prayer blessing before the man began to eat the hamburger he ordered with extra bacon. “I wanted to say the blessing with him,“ Duncan said of the hymn he crooned as 11 other customers watched, and cried along with his mom and the man as well. “God our Father, God our Father, we thank you, we thank you, for our many blessings,” Duncan sang. “For our many blessings, Amen, Amen." 


Sikh man helps boy: I found this on Yahoo:

Neighbours have clubbed together to reward a Sikh man who found international fame after he broke religious rules to save a little boy’s life.


But in TV interviews, many viewers commented on Singh’s lack of furniture.

 

May 22 FHRITP scandal: "Reporter confronts men who bombarded her with vulgarity".  This sexism has been in the news.  I got to give points to Shauna Hunt for confronting those guys for the sexism and misogyny.  When I first read about it, I was more about: "That is so rude that they're are interrupting someone who's trying to work."  I am very work-minded.  Then everybody is talking more about sexism.  Here are some Youtube comments.

ramywiles: Sexual harassment isn't a joke, dudebros.

garfocusalternate:It was done to her because she's a reporter, and the phrase is often shouted at reporters, not necessarily targeted at them. The guy probably wasn't even considering the fact that she was a woman.

Randolf Ledesma: the guy got fired  from his job in Toronto...

My opinion: If you say or do anything bad outside of work, you can get fired.

I'm going to do a little flashback of 2013 post called "joke flops/ funny and annoying/ funny wedding video."  It's about how I annoy my sister on purpose.  It's mainly annoying, but not offensive.  But here's some more:  

Aug. 6 Other people's flops:

Summer school: I told you this one before of back in gr. 10 math summer school.  Mike was joking around and making fun of these girls giggling really loudly.  He giggles really loudly in a girlish tone of voice.

Mike: "Let's go and make cookies for the boys!"
The entire class (unison): What?!
Mike: Guys, I got that from The Simpsons.
Teacher: Yeah, sure, you get everything from The Simpsons.
Mike: Yeah, but I did.  Remember it was about the Malibu Stacey doll being too sexist?
The entire class (unison): Oh, yeah.

This joke flopped because no one got the reference, and then nobody laughed.

Sexual harassment: I've mentioned this before.  This was the worst joke flops I have ever seen.  It was also in gr. 10 and this guy was pretending he was interested in my friend by saying disgusting and sexual things to her for 20 min.  He was suffering from delusions of grandeur that he thought was so funny, but no one else was, especially my friend.  He also suffered from low level of emotional intelligence because he couldn't see how offended my friend was.  It's not until she cried and walked out that he was like: "Oh my God, I totally offended her."

Britain's youngest donor: I found this touching story on Yahoo. 

The parents of Britain's youngest organ donor say their son "lived and died a hero" after the infant's kidneys saved the life of a patient with renal failure.

Doctors told mother Jess Evans during her 12th week of pregnancy that one of the twin sons she was carrying suffered a fatal condition which stops the brain and skull from developing.
 
She and her fiance Mike Houlston were told their baby would either be stillborn or die shortly after birth.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, the couple from Cardiff said they decided to allow the infant's kidneys and heart valves to be donated to save the lives of others.


The Drop Box: The Movie: I was at work and the TV show Context with Lorna Dueck was on in the break room.  They interview Pastor Lee Jung Park and the film maker Brian Ivey.  It's a documentary about abandoning babies at an orphanage.

This is from imdb.com:

The Drop Box tells the story of South Korean pastor Lee Jong-rak and his heroic efforts to embrace and protect the most vulnerable members of society. It is an exploration of the physical, emotional and financial toll associated with providing refuge to orphans that would otherwise be abandoned on the streets. The movie is also a story of hope - a reminder that every human life is sacred and worthy of love. South Korea is not the only country grappling with the issue of orphan care. Around the world, there are more than 150 million orphans waiting for forever families to call their own.   

My opinion: I hope people are inspired to adopt babies, be a foster parent, and/ or at least donate to children's charities and charities in general.  I want to get a job to really make a difference and help people.

I have this blog and I tell and inform people of the news and various charities. I always put up Amnesty International and Unicef e-newsletters I receive here and to get people to sign petitions on Facebook.            



May 25 Bloopers: The guys who interrupt news reporters is not funny.  If you want to be funny, be like the Alias TV show crew.  Here is the season 1 bloopers.

The first part where Jennifer Garner and Victor Garber are talking in elevator had to be cut.  It was on Garner's end.

1min and 15 sec in: Bradley Cooper is talking to this gold thing.  Someone off screen ruins the take on purpose.

1min and 23 sec in: Garner and Garber are in the elevator.  Someone off screen says something and it makes them laugh.

What the people say off screen is not offensive, but it does ruin the take.
