Much attention has been showered upon the first proposed bill introduced by new Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez popularly known as the “Green New Deal.” There are many flaws in this ‘plan’ that have been judiciously pointed out by capable commentators on every type of media platform.
Thankfully, the members of the House of Representatives have not yet considered the proposal. It is not quite a ‘finished’ bill despite being co-sponsored by several declared Democratic presidential candidates including Kamala Harris, and Cory ‘Spartacus’ Booker.
Why is this idea being considered at all? To address the mythical catastrophe of ‘climate change.’
The Left, as has been chronicled here and elsewhere, has been devoted to the climate change fraud for decades. Unfortunately, some like Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, are true believers in that pseudo-scientific cult.
We should understand that this “resolution” is designed, purposely or otherwise, to destroy the nation. Unless the tide is turned back, that goal may well be accomplished.
It Is Impossible and Will Destroy the Economy
This is a destructive idea because it cannot be done. It is literally impossible to accomplish the GND.
Americans like to believe we can accomplish things that others think are impossible, but that’s not what I’m talking about. The GND is impossible like a square circle is impossible and not even God can make a circle that is also a square.
That’s because the GND violates the basic laws of mathematics. It requires that 2+2=5, while reality says that cannot be so.
The estimated cost of implementing one aspect of the GND is 13 trillion dollars. That is the requirement to replace all power generation and operation to non-petroleum, renewable resources.
How do we know this? Because the power grid replacement part of the plan has already been researched.
As it happens, a team of Stanford engineers led by Mark Jacobson outlined just such a plan back in 2015. Jacobson’s repowering plan would involve installing 335,000 onshore wind turbines; 154,000 offshore wind turbines; 75 million residential photovoltaic systems; 2.75 million commercial photovoltaic systems; 46,000 utility-scale photovoltaic facilities; 3,600 concentrated solar power facilities with onsite heat storage; and an extensive array of underground thermal storage facilities. …The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation calculated that the total cost …of Jacobson’s scheme would amount to $13 trillion. And based on how fast it has taken to install energy generation infrastructure in the past, Jacobson’s repowering plan would require a sustained installation rate that is more than 14 times the U.S. average over the last 55 years and more than six times the peak rate.
The phrase “photovoltaic system” is better known as solar panels. The impossible cost and effort required here are for just one part if this comprehensive plan for disaster.
The GND is far more encompassing than simply revamping the national power grid. Here is more of what this impossible dream entails.
…a guaranteed job with a “family-sustaining wage,” and universal access to high-quality health care, affordable housing, economic security, high-quality education, and healthy food. It also calls for increased government support for family farming, economic development in vulnerable communities, research and development, and environmental cleanup. And it would meet the goals of 100 percent renewable power production and no net increase in greenhouse gas emissions. All of this would occur through a 10-year “national mobilization.”
Take just one other from this list. Start with “universal access to high-quality health care…”
How much would that cost? We have another example of the expense with the earlier proposals for “Medicare for All,” most notably favored by AOC’s Democratic Socialist compatriot, Senator Bernie Sanders of VT.
This universal health care plan would cost 32.6 trillion dollars over 10 years. The total is now 45.6 trillion dollars over ten years for only two small parts of the GND.
How would this be paid for? Well, it won’t be through taxes. If you took all the wealth of all the billionaires of the world it would pay for less than two years of the 45.6 trillion price tag.
However, American law enforcement could only seize dollars from American billionaires, which totals 2.48 trillion dollars. That wouldn’t fund six months of these two tidbits from AOC’s proposal.
Moreover, the proposal requires the elimination of all fossil fuels. This means the abolishment of all air travel, indeed of all air traffic, civilian or military, and somehow, the elimination of methane from cow flatulence, or else convince them to stop passing gas!
Yes, the cows are mentioned as a part of the proposal. At least, they were at first but that may have been hacked…more on that part later.
Civilian air travel would be replaced by a high-speed electric rail system, at least according to the GND. Only electric cars would be permitted and an entire network of electric charging stations must be constructed, as well as some way to get to Hawaii without airplanes or ships.
Additionally, this plan calls for the retrofitting and reconstruction of every building in the nation. That is not a misprint, folks; every…single…building.
Perhaps the most ridiculous piece of the GND resolution is the goal of,
Economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work.
I predict should this become codified that the list of those unwilling to work will grow exponentially.
In order to actually put this gargantuan plan into effect, the enormous cost necessitates funds that do not exist, nor can they be produced in 10 years or 50. Even AOC knows that much.
However, this is conveniently solved by something called Modern Monetary Theory,
Ocasio-Cortez is continuing to argue for Modern Monetary Theory — something she said “absolutely” needs to be “a larger part of our conversation” in a recent Business Insider interview. The theory says that because governments can literally print money, “they can spend as much as they like,”
This is what has just happened during the last two years in Venezuela. The government printed money to fund its unsustainable debts, and inflation ran wild.
Socialists are unable to see that it is the philosophy itself which is unworkable. The most recent example of such is being demonstrated in the devastated nation of Venezuela. The annual inflation rate recorded last month in that country was an astounding 46,305%!
Now that nation, once the richest in South America, is destitute. People have fled in droves because everything is gone, including basic food items.
Unfortunately, the Left is absolutely committed to this Socialist agenda. Such an agenda carries a more ominous threat than economic destruction, the destruction of liberty itself.
The GND Would Destroy Liberty
The impossibility of the GND resolution is not lost on most functioning people. However, just because it is impossible doesn’t mean the Left won’t try to do it anyway.
Why would the Left attempt something as insane as the GND? Why would they continue to attempt this thing that is clearly impossible to do, and has historically been proven to fail?
The answer to this question is twofold. One answer is simply that the person is deluded on the level of a man claiming to be a turnip.
This is the same kind of delusion the Left embraces with the aforementioned ‘climate change’ ideology. A delusion so pervasive that Leftists in the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change or IPCC, are willing to change raw data and adjust it upward to justify their false claims.
In fact, the GND uses recommendations of the IPCC as the impetus for its proposal. This is similar to the mania of Leftists who engage in the destructive transgender ‘movement,’ and are not shy about abusing children to do so.
There is one other reason the Left will if they can, try to put the GND or something very similar to action, despite knowing it will fail. That reason is also simple, but it is in the shadows.
It is to assert complete control over the general populace. A cursory glance at the list above and the cost should cause us to pause and consider just how the government would accomplish these grandiose illusions.
There is but one way to do this, and some in the Left ardently wish this to be so. It can only happen with complete government control of, well, everything and everybody.
The radical Left is aware of this aspect of their plans. However, they also know that if most people realized the facts, they would totally reject the GND. Which is why AOC’s advisors are trying to walk back the original demands of the document.
As the video shows, AOC’s advisor claimed the original document, found on her Congressional web page was a conservative hacker’s creation. He has since admitted that he was wrong about the facts of the proposal.
Ocasio-Cortez’s office did, however, publish a “Green New Deal FAQ” that said it guarantees “economic security to all who are unable or unwilling to work,” contrary to Hockett’s claims. Her office later deleted the FAQ.
The art of deception is one the Left is particularly adept at performing. The biggest deceptions are always saved for the biggest delusions.
For example, the claim that Obamacare would reduce costs by $2,500 a year was false. The claim that under government-run health care you could keep your doctor and your present insurance proved false as well.
Obamacare was a power-grab to gain national control over just one-sixth of America’s economy. Imagine the agonizing torture of the truth needed to sell the GND which would literally control every aspect of every person’s life in the nation.
The dance of deception has already begun with AOC herself. In audio featured on The Buck Sexton Show of February 8, 2019, she agreed in one interview that the GND would require “massive government intervention,” and later the same day claimed that saying it was a “massive government takeover” was a conservative “misrepresentation.”
There is no way to obscure the disaster that even a portion of the “Green Dream,” would be if implemented. The only part of this farce which makes sense is if the co-sponsors and other supporters are ignorant concerning the original proposal.
That is possible but unlikely given the tremendous amount of press the GND has garnered. It is more likely that the Democrats in Congress know that what is written down now will be at least somewhat redone before the ‘resolution’ can be considered as a bill.
Even then the bill is unlikely to make it to President Trump’s desk, and would certainly be vetoed if it did. If that is so, why sound the alarm now?
There is an old and wise saying not heard much these days. “Forewarned is forearmed.”
This saying means that having an advance warning provides the opportunity for an adequate defense. Consider this a forewarning allowing America to become ‘forearmed.’
Do not think the Left will stop with the GND when it fails to become law. They will continue to promote Socialism proudly and boldly until the public becomes used to the idea.
When that happens, the door is pushed slightly ajar so as to enamor especially young adults with the idea of a Socialist utopia. The true believers of today will endure just as sympathizers with Socialism have since the 1960s.
Being forearmed doesn’t necessarily mean being armed with physical weapons. In this instance, it means being armed with both intellectual and spiritual weapons.
Intellectually this means a bit of effort to make sure the information relied upon is accurate. Sadly, no one should fully rely on any publication or pundit from the mainstream media, especially when it concerns anything about President Trump.
CNN is the prime example of such determined bias and was anxious to make war against the president before he was inaugurated.
[Chris] Cuomo vowed to oppose Trump’s policies, and stated he feels it is the job of the media as a whole to treat the next president of the United States with hostility. Per Cuomo, “The media cannot yield. This administration is going to demand constant fact-checking and opposition.”
Of course, journalists must fact-check this administration, as they should do for every administration. However, the idea that active “opposition” to any administration is part of the purpose of journalism is false.
A study of media coverage in 2017 by Harvard revealed that anti-Trump bias was extreme in the MSM, with one large exception.
CNN and NBC struck a 93 percent negative tone on their Trump stories, with only 7 percent positive. CBS was third in the anti-Trump race, with a 91 to 9 ratio. And the pro-Trump Fox News? That network was 52 percent negative to 48 percent positive.
This kind of data reveals that only Fox News, which is supposed to be extremely conservative, has any balanced reporting and commentary. The same kinds of bias have continued to this day according to multiple studies by the Media Research Center.
Spiritually, the weapons which should be used against the present incarnation of the Left are outlined in a tremendous passage from the New Testament. The Apostle Paul gives the specifics in the book of Ephesians.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints… Ephesians 6:12-18 [ESV]
The key to putting on this spiritual “armor of God,” rests in the final thrice-repeated call to prayer. Prayer is how spiritual weapons, both defensive and offensive, are applied.
Pray for truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, and salvation to defend against evil. Pray for discernment of God’s Word to push back against the enemy.
Persevere and pray for all those fellow ‘saints,’ brothers and sisters in Christ always. Today persecution and danger for Christians is greater than ever, and so the need for prayer is also greater than ever before.
P.S. There are some excellent tools which have emerged over time to aid in donning the armor of God. One I can recommend is the Armor of God Prayer, available through Church of the Highlands and at this link as a PDF file.

“Military Mindset” Helped Injured Ex-Soldier Become Invictus Games Weightlifter.
Invictus Games was founded by Prince Harry and many injured soldiers from around the world now participate. The 29-year-old ex-soldier called David Atkin lives in daily pain and will still compete in powerlifting, indoor rowing, discus, and the 100m and 200m at the games for “wounded warriors”. At 20, he was a section machine -gunner in a RAF Regiment with the rank of Senior Aircraftman. The vehicle he was riding in hit a trench, throwing him in the air and he landed slamming his back on the metal platform. The following bouncing action crushed his back giving me an excruciating pain.
After treatment and rehabilitation he was a back brace for nine months. As his spine got worse he had more surgery. The cocktail of analgesia he had was unbelievable. Mr Atkins praised the help he received from Help the Heroes charity, which is supporting the Games. The charity provided rehab facilities at Headley Court, Epsom, gave him occupational therapy and bought a special orthopaedic sofa.
He had counselling to help him with the post traumatic syndrome, has been medically discharged from the army. Determined to stop taking all the painkillers, he trained to be fit and lost 15kg, keeping away from takeaways too. He is now a centre manager for a military preparation college where youngsters of 16 to 23 are trained for the military career they want. Weightlifting is something he did as a young one and when he watched the participants of the Invictus Games he wanted to be involved. It has helped him to focus. He says the competition thrives on the immense public support.
A Capital City Near You Could Be Saving The Planet
In Changing Cities by Rohan Silva writes about how his baby is obsessed with trees. Scientists like Professor Edward Wilson has been writing how humans have innately emotional affiliation towards the natural world. This is now known as the “biophillia hypothesis”. A review by American psychologist Roger Ulrich of hospital records have shown patients responding well after surgery when their bedside windows are looking out onto trees rather than brickwork.
Cities such as Tokyo and Paris are taking steps to reduced environmental impact, they are making the cities greener. It appears that cities can make these changes easier and quicker than government’s. In Singapore the government is investing £100 million each year to plant trees and create new green spaces.

“Hurricane Florence” is the latest super-duper type storm (tech language alert), which is being touted as evidence of a man-made climate change formerly global warming apocalyptic event. This is not really a surprising development.
‘Climate change’ is one of the Left’s most prominent weapons in their continuing war on science. This is part one of a series of five articles demonstrating that positions of the Left in the scientific arena have little to do with science and a lot to do with politics and money.
The ‘Climate Change’ Political Fever
The impending threat of a massive hurricane this past week became a feverish sprint among leftists politicians and media outlets to pounce in lock-step against the perils of ‘climate change.’
Moreover, the pundits pushed beyond the standard narrative to specifically bash President Trump about his policies concerning ‘climate change.’ Here is one recent example from that fountain of leftist wisdom, CNN, as noted on the September 13th podcast of “The Buck Sexton Show,”
While President Trump has been talking up on preparedness, his policies have been tearing down our defenses to climate change, which is often to blame for extreme weather. …on the very same day Trump was discussing “Florence” in the Oval Office, his EPA proposed rolling back restrictions of emissions of methane, which 25 times worse than Carbon Dioxide when it comes to climate change.
This statement is one of the most unscientific claims any person could make. It is riddled with errors both intentional and unintentional.
Phrases such as, “tearing down our defenses to climate change,” and that it is “to blame for extreme weather,” are prominent examples of these mistakes and deceptive claims. However, the largest error lies in the unstated assumption of this so-called report.
It assumes that man-caused, or anthropogenic warming, what is now called ‘climate change,’ is a real phenomenon causing real and imminent harm. That is a demonstrably false claim.
Refuting the ‘Climate Change’ Narrative
The global warming/climate change narrative is easily refuted if the facts of the matter are examined. There are two key parts of the leftist unscientific assertion.
The first part is the notion that humanity can and does critically change worldwide weather patterns on a global scale in a negative manner. Moreover, these human-caused changes have only come about since the widespread use of fossil fuels.
The second part is the claim that the changes are so harmful, immediate action is required to halt the use of such horrible fuels as oil and gasoline. They also bolster that claim with the declaration that 97% of scientists agree with that narrative.
Of course, when the Left drives the narrative, facts, and reason are rarely tolerated, much less employed. This has been evident ever since the beginnings of what is now the ‘climate change’ hysteria of the Left.
The Failed Prophecies of ‘Climate Change’
The history of leftist hysteria which has culminated with the ‘climate change’ frenzy of today began 50 years ago triggered by one man, author Paul Erlich. His book “The Population Bomb” began the road to extreme environmentalism on the Left.
The problem with the book was that Erlich made some prophecies of doom that have since proved false.
His book claimed:
“The battle to feed humanity is over. In the 1970s and 1980s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate.”
Remember all those hundreds of millions of people who starved to death between the release of Led Zep III and Tom Petty’s Full Moon Fever? Nope, me neither. That’ll be because like most of the things predicted by the future Bing Professor of Population Studies at Stanford University, it didn’t actually transpire.
Nor – another of Ehrlich’s predictions – did the average age of death in the U.S. by 1980 fall to 42 years old.
Nor – yet – have ocean levels risen by 250 feet, despite Ehrlich’s warning that this was a distinct possibility if the polar icecaps started to melt.
This trend of claiming scientific omniscience in environmental matters by the Left has continued to the present. However, as the failed prophets continue to fail at climate prophecy, their creditability has waned.
The most noted modern false prophet of climate doom is former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. His predictions were famously enshrined in the award-winning .. umm… documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.”
Gore’s wailings of climate catastrophe within a decade have been shown to be false. Yet, it hasn’t stopped Gore from making a sequel 10 years afterward. In that sequel, we are again told global doom will come very soon we don’t act to stop it now!
Fudging the Climate Data and ‘Climategate’
The Left realized early on that real science was and would keep revealing how wrong they were on this issue. That is if the real science actually became public.
However, those devoted to the climate change agenda have also been determined to maintain their influence. So determined that scientific data has been ignored and even tampered with.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the people who formulated the structure that directed their research, constantly manipulated the data and the methods to predetermine the results.
The predetermined result the IPCC desired was to make it appear that a rise in earth’s temperatures was happening. Moreover, it was also meant to push the notion that this rise in temperatures was threatening all life on earth.
However, some in the scientific community began to question the veracity of ‘climate change’ enthusiasts and their dubious data. Eventually, this would lead to what is known as “Climategate,” as discussed about halfway through the following video.
As is shown above, real scientists with real doubts had their raw data and findings suppressed intentionally to produce a fictional result. However, “Climategate” has waned from public attention in recent years, thanks in part to willing Leftmedia allies.
What Is the Motivation for ‘Climate Change’ Deception?
The motivating factors are as old as the human race. They are the acquisition of those most coveted items, power and wealth.
For the political Left, this means furthering their power and wealth in a push toward Socialism. Thus, a little deception (or a lot of it) here and there causes them no real concern.
For the ‘climate change’ proponent in the scientific community, this means money flowing to them through government grants. It also means adulation from the Leftmedia and those in positions of power.
A YouTube video of the program “Louder With Crowder” aired on May 5, 2017. It is a 45-minute destruction of the ‘climate change’ arguments via an interview with one of the founders of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore.
Dr. Moore also holds a PhD. in Ecology and is now a noted ‘climate change denier’ among real scientists. During the interview, Dr. Moore stated that NASA of altered temperature records so as to exclude cooler readings from 1940 to 1970 and produce a fraudulent record.
The host of the program, Steven Crowder, asked Dr. Moore why NASA would do this.
Crowder: “What would be the motivation for NASA to do that?”
Moore: “$1.8 billion dollars in public funding. That’s the motivation.”
For those who wish to learn what real science has to say in more detail, I recommend highly the full YouTube video. It can be found by a search of YouTube for the title ACTUAL SCIENTIST: “Climate Change is a Scam!”
The Scheme of the ‘Paris Climate Accords’
The elevation of ‘climate change’ pseudo-science to the mainstream of international attention culminated in the signing of the “Paris Climate Accords,” in April of 2016. The document’s official name is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The United States was the most prominent nation to join and sign the agreement. Former President Barack Obama acted without the approval of the Senate and signed the agreement.
Obama was in violation of his Constitutional authority to submit the nation to the conditions of what is a de-facto treaty without Senate consent. Yet, because it was not called a treaty, and the weakness of the political opposition to Obama’s wishes, he was allowed to do this at his whim.
President Donald Trump sparked an international political and media firestorm when he announced that the United States was pulling out of the Accords on June 1, 2017.
His critics were as they always are, full of hyperbole and outrageous suggestions of impending climate catastrophe which would be completely Trump’s fault. Hurricane Florence is but the most recent example of the mental meltdown by the Left.
That is to be expected from the Left especially since this action rebukes Obama’s initiative. It also questions the former president’s judgment and unconstitutional actions, as well as his messianic claims noted in the video above.
Moreover, the Left is invested ideologically in the myth of ‘climate change,’ and the expanded government power enabled by submission to the energy restrictions of the Accords. It signaled that American policies embraced a basic Socialist principle of stealing from the wealthy to redistribute to whomever they want.
Challenging the ‘Climate Change’ Agenda
This false hysteria about ‘climate change’ carries a large contingent of duped followers with it. Thankfully, its influence is being challenged at present by the president and his policies.
However, the hysterical will not go away and we must be vigilant with the facts and real science to push back and smash the false and dangerous ‘climate change’ agenda. Additionally, firm action in the voting booth and vigorous petitioning of the LORD in prayer that the truth may prevail is necessary.
It is the height of human arrogance to believe that we are wise and knowledgeable enough to even assess, let alone critically affect, the climate. This is reflected each day by the inability of local and national and worldwide meteorologists to predict the weather beyond a few days in the future.
Toward the end of the book of Job, the LORD confronts the complaining Job. God rebukes his arguments and in the process says this concerning the climate:
Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you establish their rule on the earth? Can you lift up your voice to the clouds, that a flood of waters may cover you? Can you send forth lightnings, that they may go and say to you, ‘Here we are’? Job 38:33-35 [ESV]
Next time we will examine the kissing cousin of ‘climate change,’ the Left’s radical environmentalism and the damage resulting from it.

Synchronicity is a concept introduced by the Analytical Psychologist Carl Jung in the early 1920s, full extrapolation in the 1950s, which states seemingly random events of one’s life, the “coincidences,” may have meaning even if there is no causality to those events. Causality meaning it broad terms everything has a cause. Nothing can happening without being cause. Synchronicity says X,Y,Z happened and it is all related even if it does not seem to have a connection at all.
This concept is not limited to Psychology. There are parallel theories in Quantum Physics and Mathematics. Chaos Theory, brought into the mainstream partly by the character of Ian Malcolm in Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, discusses how there is inherent order in a system of what appears to be complete chaos. Butterfly Effect, besides being a bad movie starring Ashton Kutcher, is an aspect of Chaos Theory. The famous line quoted to sum up the idea, “A Butterfly flaps its wings in China, a rainstorm hits in St. Louis, Missouri.” (Use of St. Louis, Missouri is ambiguous.)
What seems to be a random occurrence somehow affects something else completely unrelated half a world away.
The brain categorizes automatically everyday. It is one of the defense or regulatory mechanisms the mind deploys to use and store data and stimuli without becoming overwhelmed. Finding patterns helps us make sense of the world. When the brain cannot find a pattern or a reason behind something happening there is a momentary confusion, glitch.
When a person has a slight glitch in the information their brain receives, as to where it comes from or what it might mean, the person chooses to ignore it, writes it off as coincidence, or reads it as a sign from a High Power or Intuition. Most confused moments are not a big enough break in the mundane routine to cause much thought. Some claim the need to find causation or meaning or reasoning behind daily phenomenon is how Deities were created. Regardless, in order for the brain to function and people to continue to work, eat, breath everyday the glitches had to be minimized.
Beyond the divine, paranormal or psychology connectivity our brains need there is physical evidence of actually connectivity outside of our minds. Ecosystems, civilizations, humans and non humans are connected in many ways. We affect each other, share the same air, water, dirt. Genetically, structurally, chemically all things, living and non, share degrees.
So there is truth to patterns. There is truth to chaos and order. There is truth in connectivity.
Now, as for the acceptance or belief if Synchronicity the person’s belief systems come into play.
In the next part I will talk about my own experiences which have lead me to believe in Synchronicity. I also believe Synchronicity continues to work in my life to this day.
“More than 60,000 bolts of lighting strikes parts of England in 24 hours” – Met Office
An experience never seen by anyone, apparently, the Met Office called it “mother of all lightings”. The Saturday night sky was brightened by the constant lighting revealing its new and temporary purple colour. Thunder cracked like a whip lashing the air into waves of storms. Torrential rainfall came down and the warm muggy temperature was reminisce of a tropical rainstorm.
In some cases, the roofs of houses were hit and caught fire. In Stansted Airport the refuelling centre was disabled by the lighting therefore no airline could take off. Passengers were stranded and some gave up and went home but it was a sleepless night for hundreds more. Parents taking their children on half -term holidays were especially disappointed.
Some streaks of lighting illuminated landmarks such as The Shard and The London Eye. Places in the countryside were also hit as below.
The 71st World Health Organisation (WHO) Conference
The WHO conference came to conclusion, having agreed on its new five -year strategic plan. WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the delegates they had now charted a new course for the organisation. He sai, everything the WHO did from now on would be evaluated in light of the “triple billion targets” within the strategic plan. This aims to achieve:
billion more people benefitting from universal health coverage
1 billion more people better protected from health emergencies
1 billion more people enjoying better health and wellbeing.
Before closing the delegates also agreed two more items, maternal infant and young child nutrition, whereby they work to reduce stunted growth in children, urge more countries and their hospitals to practise baby friendly systems including breast feeding, prevention of anaemia in adolescent girls and preventing childhood obesity through counselling and complimentary feeding.
The other was eradication of wild Poliovirus, as at May 2018 only 9 cases were reported globally, that was from Afghanistan and Pakistan.
A Single Mom’s second job inspired her non- profit organisation
“Amazing Mom” Honoree Jennifer Maddox’s After School activities helps more than 800 children
Jennifer Maddox’s job as a police officer was satisfying but she needed more financially, in order to take care of her two sons. Born in Chicago, now at 46 years old, in 2008 she was doing her main job as well as her side hustle/job as a security officer of a housing estate.
While working at the housing projects/estates, she noticed majority of the 1200 children were getting into trouble because of boredom.
“There were no safe spaces or places at all for the kids to be kids, to play ball, jump rope or anything,” Jennifer says. “The lack of resources and lack of community spaces for young people sparked something inside of me.”
She gained the trust of the parents living there and soon convinced the management of the housing company to allow her to organise After-School activities for the children. She started Future Ties in 2011, providing after-school and summer activities plus a mentorship programme for children who are 18 and under.
Crime has gone down by 70% and many of the children keep coming back to volunteer. This story caught the attention of co-anchors NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kobt of the ” Amazing Moms Today” aired before Mother’s Day 2018.
