Justice For Rashida Faridah|Day No To Domestic Violence😭😭
The first message I got from Rashida Fridah said “Are you on your way? I can’t seem to open the lock, even with the right code”. We had a shift together at Retro Nørrebro, a charity café around the corner from Assistens Cemetery in Northern Copenhagen. We’d never worked together before, and had only met at social events in passing. Both of us were new to the café but as it had so many international volunteers and members of staff it was impossible to know everyone. It was the start of a long and cold Danish winter, and the locks on the doors were frozen. This was Fridah’s first winter in Copenhagen, and she was bundled up with scarves and gloves, trying to force open a café door in an otherwise deserted street.
The second message I got from her was less than a month later. It said “Do you…

The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY experienced a nasty surprise just before 6AM this morning when a sinkhole approximately 40 feet wide and 30 feet deep opened up and swallowed eight rare and prestigious American sports cars. When the ground opened, luckily, the museum was still closed for the night, and nobody was injured, but the list of Corvettes lost is certainly disheartening. The sinkhole set off an alarm within the museum, and the local fire department was notified. Upon arrival, they found a large hole in the floor of the Sky Dome “hall of fame” section of the museum, with a number of special cars resting subterranean.
While some of the cars appear salvageable, certainly a few will be reduced to no more than scrap. The damaged cars include two cars currently on loan from General Motors; a 1993 ZR-1 Spyder, and a 2009 ZR1 “Blue Devil”, as well as six vehicles owned by the museum itself; a 1962 Black Corvette, a 1984 PPG Pace Car, the 1 Millionth Corvette, the 1.5 Millionth Corvette, a Ruby Red 40th Anniversary Car, and a Mallett Hammer C5 Z06. Some of these cars, as you can tell, are one of a kind, and can never be replaced.

The 1.5 millionth Corvette and Mallet Corvette were the last cars pulled from the sinkhole, on April 3 and April 9, respectively – after workers were initially unable to find them amid the collapsed earth.

For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honour there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.
There is a noticeable symphony being played around the world today. That symphony speaks of the independent, unorthodox, proud women. Yes, it is the International Women’s Day! It is the day to celebrate the women in your life.
In my life I have never believed in a particular day to celebrate women though, but a date is necessary rather customary to remind you of their contributions in your life lest you forget it.
So here’s wishing all those strong women who competed in a man’s world, defeating them and breaking the taboos to earn the place which was rightfully theirs from the start but usurped in the past by manly morals and ego, a very- HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!
Why am I always single while my friends are getting married and getting babies? Is the male female ratio playing games on me? Did the wife material finish before the tailor made me that maroon suit…

If you’re a nostalgic like I am, you will easily fall head over heels in love with these classic Toyota models from Japan. The vintage vibe gives off a romantic feel and authentic feel to vehicles, and of you see one on the road today that’s in near-mint condition, you would doubtless be entranced. There is really something unique about old cars, especially these ones!
Publica Convertible – Originally designed as a concept car for Japanese families, it was eventually developed into a luxurious car complete with reclining seats and a heater. There was also a two-door coupe version, but the convertible was definitely the crowd favorite.
SR5 Pickup – It may be a small truck compared to other vintage Toyota pickups, but it was sturdy and it is perhaps one of the most popular because of its appearance in the 80’s movie Back to the Future. Move over, DeLorean!
