Global Plastic Pollution - A problem facing us all...

My friend Gia sent this video to me with a message that said that the video describes the situation in the Pacific Ocean, but she bets that the situation is the same in the Atlantic and the Gulf of Paria as well.

I seen the floating clouds of debris in the Gulf of Paria. Just take a water taxi trip after a couple days of rain and you'll see for yourself, especially as the boats navigate around them to keep from clogging their jets.

After you look at the video though, make sure and think hard about the next sweetie paper that you look to toss absently in the drain.

Just one pothole from death...

...either their's or someone else's.  The video shows a driver demonstrating his car's ability to go from 0 to 190KM per hour, and then the camera pans to show that they are driving along our nation's highway with other cars on the road around them.  They go further to engage in the nasty practice of tailing a driver in the fast lane, an intimidation tactic used by inconsiderate drivers looking to overtake.

I hope that this is the last I see of these fools... and pray that I don't read about them or their victims in the paper in a story about another tragic accident on our roadways.

Thanks to @sanman_ish for sharing the video the wider community.

Today is World AIDS Day

Read this and this.  'Nuff said.

For those who can't see the links, the first above is to the National AIDS Hotline of Trinidad and Tobago page at http://www.aidsline.tt/hiv.htm where you'll find a wealth of information on HIV and AIDS all in one place.  The second is to the World AIDS Day page at http://www.worldaidsday.org/ where you'll find a site designed around this year's theme, "HIV: Reality".

Get tested.  It's free.  Respect.  Protect.
