Earth Day In 2016

Dear Diary:

This year, Earth Day is focusing on the global forest.  We need to restore our forests to better health.  By planting trees, we are helping to promote clean air for our planet and provide an aid for climate change.

Earth Day is approaching its 50 year anniversary so goals have been set over the next five years in anticipation of the celebration.  The first goal is to plant over 7 billion trees on earth to help maintain a good balance on our planet.  

Today over 150 world leaders will sign The Paris Agreement at the United Nations in New York.  Finally Canada is taking a active part in improving our environment.  From 10am to 1pm EST today, you can watch the live opening and signing here.

Good Night for now.

Social Media Choices

Dear Diary:

When Berry put out her Monday Meme about our social media interests, I had to try and think about my involvement for Dreamer.  In my first world, I joined several media networks when they first came out - Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter especially - but I slowly lost interest over the past few years.  I still have accounts but rarely log in. Because my first life doesn't capture interest in social media, I don't involve Dreamer too much either.  

So, in my second life, I'm not involved with many social media networks.  My list is small:

  • Second Life Profile
  • YouTube (just recently)

Guess you could call me "anti-social-media".

Good Night for now.

The Dancing Challenge..and ...yes ... CHALLENGE!

Dear Diary:

Well, I've never done a video before but with the dancing challenge this week I thought I might tackle it.  I did have some extra time and it was a good thing.  It took me all week to accomplish 30 sec of careening around a dance floor.

I learned a lot.  I filmed a few...deleted many.  Edited a couple....added things to two. Published one....deleted one.  Tried the "fancies"...lost the core video.  And the result for the first attempt was not exactly as planned but then that would have taken another week of ups and downs.  So...

Thanks to Strawberry Singh for suggesting this and I hope we do more videos since I think I can do better next time.  A special thanks to Caitlin Tobias who provided tips and tricks  for making videos and by reading and re-reading her post several thousand times, it gave me confidence to try this.

Good Night for now.

I'm wearing:
Hair: Vanity Hair Fugee
Outfit: Moonstore no rules outfit (pink)
Earrings: MOOD Fumo (no longer available)
Shoes: KC Georgia

Dance: MOVE Sonja

World Autism Awareness Day on April 2

Dear Diary:

Autism Spectum Disorder is a condition present in childhood but diagnosis can easily be missed.  Children have difficulty communicating and forming relationships with others.  Sometimes autism is not understood by society and having an awareness day educates people.

Jig-saw puzzle pieces often are used as a logo for autism.  This could be because autism is puzzling and there are many factions to the disorder.  It is believed that autism can be a genetic problem but other scientists say heredity should also be considered.  If a child is diagnosed early enough, behavioural programs can provide confidence to achieve a productive life.

Several prominent people were autistic, including Mozart, Charles Darwin, and Einstein.  All exhibited signs of autistic behaviour but all went on to be well known, with hugely successful lives.

There are several groups in Second Life that are supportive of autism.  I visited Club Accessible this morning.  Everyone was very friendly.  Fly out for a dance, a cup of coffee or just to talk.  You'll enjoy your time there.

Good Night for now.
