Fly headless (or out of your mind)

pawel

It is now known and certain that social networks decrease our concentration and therefore also the strength towards our study or the concentration on something that requires prolonged attention. So often our smartphones are the maximum expression of escape and sometimes the illusion of being able to fly, but without a head, that is, without the awareness that we often live in a virtual world
Doing without our smartphones is difficult because they have become an integral part of ourselves: google maps, facebook, photos, audio, etc … the best thing would be to make moderate use of them, but it is always difficult to do something by restoring their balance and far from the temptations of excess and above all from the freedom to browse ..

20th february: World Day of Social Justic

socialjusticeday

World Justice Day is an international anniversary celebrated on 20th February of each year, since 2009, organized by the United Nations Organization to promote the theme of social justice worldwide.
This day is the prerequisite for peace and security between nations because, through respect for human rights and the fundamental freedoms of all, it is able to remove the barriers that people face in accessing social welfare due to gender , age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, disability, working conditions and justice.
The theme of the day for 2020 is “Bridging the inequality gap to achieve social justice“. But what are the main inequalities to be filled?
We are witnessing the dehumanization of economic policies aimed at enhancing only financial results but instead the evaluation of results should be encouraged in light of the positive impact for citizens.
There is still a large pay gap between men and women in the presence of a similar role, function and responsibility and insufficient measures to reconcile life and work times.
Political and entrepreneurial strategies are slow to implement the energy transitions necessary to ensure environmental justice and persevere in the exploitation of the natural resources of developing countries for the benefit and use of developed countries, but instead should tend to contain their economic and social gap .

The globalization of markets, the spread of technology, the expansion of the markets for goods and services, the expansion of investments and the internationalization of companies and business processes have not been enough to ensure fair employment and working conditions, equality and protection social development in developing countries, nor to set fair global labor standards.

The daily facebook

The system brings us to the mass, and when our desires are fulfilled we feel the need to satisfy them daily. I have never loved Facebook, but everyone would realize that in Europe there are now more people who do not have this social network than people who have it. Pawel kuczysnki’s designs are as always brilliant. And the meaning is undoubtedly that we often confuse real bread with other futile things, which deceive us daily. The system of society and the mass deceives us about our needs, making us mistake the priorities and choices .. This world must always be seen from above and trying to see what remains above us.

Today, February 15 is the anniversary of Susan B. Anthony’s birth and Google has dedicated the doodle to her on his search engine.

Susan B. Anthony’ was an American social reformer and women’s rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women’s suffrage movement.

Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.

In 1851, she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who became her lifelong friend and co-worker in social reform activities, primarily in the field of women’s rights. In 1852, they founded the New York Women’s State Temperance Society after Anthony was prevented from speaking at a temperance conference because she was female. In 1863, they founded the Women’s Loyal National League, which conducted the largest petition drive in United States history up to that time, collecting nearly 400,000 signatures in support of the abolition of slavery. In 1866, they initiated the American Equal Rights Association, which campaigned for equal rights for both women and African Americans. In 1868, they began publishing a women’s rights newspaper called The Revolution. In 1869, they founded the National Woman Suffrage Association as part of a split in the women’s movement. In 1890, the split was formally healed when their organization merged with the rival American Woman Suffrage Association to form the National American Woman Suffrage Association, with Anthony as its key force. In 1876, Anthony and Stanton began working with Matilda Joslyn Gage on what eventually grew into the six-volume History of Woman Suffrage. The interests of Anthony and Stanton diverged somewhat in later years, but the two remained close friends.

In 1872, Anthony was arrested for voting in her hometown of Rochester, New York, and convicted in a widely publicized trial. Although she refused to pay the fine, the authorities declined to take further action. In 1878, Anthony and Stanton arranged for Congress to be presented with an amendment giving women the right to vote. Introduced by Sen. Aaron A. Sargent (R-CA), it later became known colloquially as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment. It was ratified as the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920.

Anthony traveled extensively in support of women’s suffrage, giving as many as 75 to 100 speeches per year and working on many state campaigns. She worked internationally for women’s rights, playing a key role in creating the International Council of Women, which is still active. She also helped to bring about the World’s Congress of Representative Women at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.

When she first began campaigning for women’s rights, Anthony was harshly ridiculed and accused of trying to destroy the institution of marriage. Public perception of her changed radically during her lifetime, however. Her 80th birthday was celebrated in the White House at the invitation of President William McKinley. She became the first female citizen to be depicted on U.S. coinage when her portrait appeared on the 1979 dollar coin.

Our chirps

How important is our smartphone for us? Definitely a lot. But if used with care it can be our best friend, if used with abuse, thinking that it can solve our problems, it becomes our worst confidant. At other times, the smartphone was replaced by a notebook or a book, which in other eras could completely influence a person’s ideas and character. Instead in the digital age, everyone counts to the extent of the insignificant infinitesimal.

Our age is characterized by the chaos and the bombardment of the news, which between social media and other web news, takes us away from reality. So that the book remains the only instrument with whom to remain connected with our fantasy, that is, our soul that is also our reality which we change with our dreams.
If we precede the richness of books and culture, only the birds will benefit, as they have remained the only ones still to hold silence as a divine song.

The books are supported by the dreams of those who wrote them and support those who believe in dreams.

Jennifer lopez drives me crazy

jennifershakira
Jenniger Lopez and Shakira with Pepsi Sponsor of final NFL

Today, the social media went crazy at the news that in the interval of the next NFL final Jennifer Lopez and shakira will do a show together.

In the Super Bowl interval show, the final of the American football championship, one of the most anticipated and followed sporting events of the year: the next will be held on February 2, 2020 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The news was given by the two singers and by Pepsi, the interval’s sponsor, on social networks.

Jennifer Lopez is now 50 years old but still makes the hearts and heads of men go crazy. One of my absolute singers and show girls.

Which other woman is like her?
I remember that when I was little, Pamela Anderson was very popular, but over the years she lost all her beauty.

Facebook has tested the elimination of the number of likes

like

Most likely a huge news will come for facebook: the elimination of the number of likes, so it will no longer be possible to see the number of likes unless clicking on the post.

This novelty has already been applied to the other Zuckerberg social media: instagram! And it brought great changes because the likes were the first indicative data to know the popularity of a profile.

This novelty is part of a Mark ZuckerbergΒ philosophy project to remove the stress and emotion that brings the number of likes on the social media.Β The company has not declared any further information and is still not sure what the platform will reserve for its users.

LYRIC

I’m a motherfuckin’ train wreck
I don’t wanna be too much
But I don’t wanna miss your touch
And you don’t seem to give a fuck
I don’t wanna keep you waiting
But I do just what I have to do
And I might not be the one for you
But you ain’t about to have no boo, ’cause
I know we be so complicated
But we be so smitten, it’s crazy
I can’t have what I want, but neither can you
You ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend)
And I ain’t your girlfriend (girlfriend)
But you don’t want me to see nobody else
And I don’t want you to see nobody
But you ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend)
And I ain’t your girlfriend (girlfriend)
But you don’t want me to touch nobody else (nobody)
Baby, we ain’t gotta tell nobody
Even though you ain’t mine
I promise the way we fight
Make me honestly feel like we just in love
‘Cause, baby, when push comes to shove
Damn, baby, I’m a train wreck, too (too)
I lose my mind when it comes to you
I take time with the ones I choose
And I don’t want to smile if it ain’t from you, yeah
I know we be so complicated
Lovin’ you sometimes drive me crazy
‘Cause I can’t have what I want and neither can you (oh no)
You ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend)
And I ain’t your girlfriend (girlfriend)
But you don’t want me to see nobody else
And I don’t want you to see nobody
But you ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend)
And I ain’t your girlfriend (girlfriend)
But you don’t want me to touch nobody else (nobody)
Baby, we ain’t gotta tell nobody
I wanna kiss you (yeah), don’t wanna miss you (yeah)
But I can’t be with you ’cause I got issues
Yeah, on the surface, seem like it’s easy
Careful with words, but it’s still hard to read me
Stress high when the trust low (mmh)
Bad vibes, where’d the fun go? (Ohh)
Try to open up and love more (love more)
Try to open up and love more
If you were my boyfriend
And you were my girlfriend
I probably wouldn’t see nobody else
But I can’t guarantee that by myself
You ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend, you ain’t my boyfriend)
And I ain’t your girlfriend (girlfriend, I ain’t your girlfriend)
But you don’t want me to see nobody else (nobody)
And I don’t want you to see nobody
But you ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend, you know you ain’t my boyfriend)
And I ain’t your girlfriend (girlfriend, yeah, mmh)
But you don’t want me to touch nobody else (nobody)
Baby, we ain’t gotta tell nobody (oh yeah)
You ain’t my boyfriend (boyfriend)

Social Media Makeup (Trick)

pawel
2019 DRAWING of Pawel Kuczynski

Today everyone has a smartphone and therefore they use social media.

Today a phone without APP is useless. I know friends who have a smartphone but use it for very few essential apps: email, maps, whatsapp! Obviously these are rare cases: the most people cannot do without social networks, which become a real stage with which to show themselves, sometimes even pretending and impersonating a life that does not compose with theirs.

It’s the social game. It is perhaps the game of the web in general. But perhaps some social networks are more predisposed than others.
Facebook is the one that gives the possibility to show itself with its own detailed and specific profile: images, videos, posts, preferences, likes, etc …

The smartphone thus becomes a true and primary accessory, a cosmetic with which we often make up our lives.

Sometimes it is difficult to get rid of these social networks, that doing without them is like being out of the world. But sometimes the social fatigue surfaces and can lead to a real addiction.

Sometimes it is difficult to get rid of these social networks, that doing without them is like being out of the world.

But sometimes the social fatigue surfaces and can lead to a real addiction. A mask that often leaves traces and affects our lives as well as making us lose more time than we imagine.
