Wow, tonight’s episode was ridiculous, I can say I’m still upset over it.  And looking at facebook, I’m not the only one.

We watched three or more people do very physical work in extremely hot conditions without any water and get sick because of it.  I watched “medical” not provide hydration for these people.  I don’t know if it’s against the rules or what but that is what they needed, plus cooling, and I sat there getting more and more upset as they showed the video and no one was taking care of these victims.  I know how serious this condition is, I’ve been through this myself.

The show ended up removing Caleb by helicopter.  Caleb is one of most people’s favorites, he seems like such a great person, caring, funny, hardworking.  A great example to others.  He worked his rear off to try and get his team to win the challenge and ended up risking his life.  All for some salt and pepper…

A lot of people online are calling the show out for unsafe conditions and going too far.  Where will it end?  Will we end up with real-life to-the-death gladiator comps?  I don’t know.  I hope not.  Providing water and shade are reasonable options.  I realize it is “Survivor,” but if no one survives… then what?

The other awful part of tonight’s show was the abuse of a woman on the “brawn tribe.”  Two large men bullied and emotionally abused this small woman.  They badgered her, they demeaned her, they belittled her.  This happens all over the world all of the time, and it needs TO END.  This is chauvinistic and misogynistic bigotry.  It’s disgusting.  These “men” are sad examples of the human race.  I feel sorry for anyone who has to interact with them or anyone like them.  But, unfortunately, I think all women and girls have been there, way too often.  I know I have.

The great thing to come out of this horrible episode was seeing so many people on facebook calling these bullying bigots OUT.  Both men and women were posting, angered by their awful behavior.  These people know right from wrong and having the strength and moral character to stand up to them, that is what I like to see.  THANK YOU PEOPLE!  Keep it up!  You are the real heroes.

Reality Check

by, Suzanne Coleman, MD

 

Women and girls are the biggest group of oppressed and abused people in the US and around the world, yet no one talks about it. Every day three women are murdered in the US and no one cares about it. There are no marches, no news reports. Silence. That needs to end.  Speak up.  Speak out.  Don’t be silenced.

 

 

Apple’s Next BIG NEW IDEA

by,

Suzanne Coleman

I’ve got the inside scoop for you here, don’t miss out.

I found out through my secret connections that Apple was looking to purchase a big piece of property that it could use to expand its business further into Europe and the Middle East.  They also wanted to find land and facilities that would be useful for company retreats and vacations.

When reviewing the current opportunities, executives considered location, size and what the property would offer to them and their thousands of employees.  They also looked at possible tax breaks and other tax implications.  They currently have billions of dollars stashed in Europe because of tax advantages.

I gave Tim Cook a call and told him about what I thought was the perfect solution.  It offered everything they wanted, a central location in Europe and the Middle East, with good access to Western Asia and Northern Africa as well.  It was available at a deep discount, but offered vast lands and a vacation-like atmosphere.

I told Tim Cook that Apple should buy Greece.

And he agreed.

Not only would this acquisition solve Apple’s current needs, but it would help stabilize Europe’s economy and the US stock market.  It would also give Apple a seat at the European Union’s policy-making sessions, and that’s never a bad idea for a company who is looking to expand their business into an area.

Of course all of this is currently fictional (in case you weren’t sure), but I think it really is the best solution all-around to the current Greece debt issues, and Apple could certainly afford to do it.

If you like my idea and decide to go ahead with it Tim, all I ask is a 10% commission and that you save me a nice house with a sunset-view.  Let me know.

Chris and Whitney are OVER!

The Bachelor Gossip, framed

I know there are a few people out there who might be surprised by this, but I’m thinking that most of you are NOT.  Chris and Whitney are OVER, yes OVER!  But were they ever really together?  Who knows.  “The Bachelor” has gotten to be so hard to believe, it’s too bad.  So many of the loyal viewers are tired of the fakeness of the contestants and want to bring back the reality to the reality show.  How about someone who is truly looking for love and is a good person?  Would people still watch if it wasn’t all about looks and fun locations?  I don’t know but I challenge another network to find out, I believe it would be a successful show.  While watching contestants explore exciting locations is fun, the premise of the show is relationships and love, not lying and manipulation to get attention…

As far as this past season’s contestants, I feel bad for Chris, he seems funny and intelligent in his blog posts, yet on the show he comes across as stiff and awkward with no emotions.  Maybe he can work with someone to bring out the real him over time.

Whitney would be a perfect current Bachelorette, she is fake, fake, fake.  (Sorry girl, but I’m not going to lie.  You might lie to yourself, but I won’t enable you there.)  I’ll bet she can find herself plenty of men who like superficial girls, no problem!  The question is, will those relationships last?  I think we have some real answers to that now.

OMG Danger, Insanity, Awesomeness!

OMG this is amazing.  You have to watch this!  This video shows the tsunami as it comes inland in Japan and then as it gets sucked back out.  The power of the force of the water is scary.  There is water, there is fire, there is destruction.

I can’t believe the people who stayed around as this was happening, I wonder if they were advised to leave or not?  Maybe the structures were known to be safe?  But you have to wonder about electricity and gas as dangers, I mean look at the ending!  How could you survive if you were stuck in that?!
