It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event.

Spiders crawl on your face while you sleep
#spider #Australia
Huntsman spiders grow to be about the size of your face, so they're kind of like the ultimate face hugger. But experts say not to worry - the spiders may be catching prey such as cockroaches on your face at night.
Gotta love Australia!

Bolivia becomes the latest country to allow transgender people to have their ID documents changed to reflect their gender identity
#LGBTQ #trans #gender #equality #humanrights #Bolivia

This week a law that was passed in May came into effect, allowing transgender people have their official documents changed to show their gender in alignment with their identity.
The only restriction being that the changes can be made only by people over 18 years of age and only after being assessed by a psychiatrist. The LGBTQ community has welcomed the move despite the restrictions, with more than a thousand people estimated to apply for new documents immediately.

But there's the challenge. Paced over several days through the month, we scoured the country side, hiking high into the mountains, through rainforest, to the coast and finally a couple of forays around the lesser visited suburbs of a city in the next state over.

I helped other agents - took some visiting agents around to a glowworm cave. Drove another friend (who lives in a very small town and can't drive) far and wide to get his 300 unique portals in one day.

I even helped a visiting agent from the other faction when she lost her phone - I loaned her an old crappy phone to keep getting uniques with (a phone that only works if it's plugged in and it can't handle a SIM card so it only works while tethered to a hotspot and plugged into a battery pack and it still randomly borks out, but it's better than no phone and sharing a device).

Overall we clocked over 800km driving, 4 days of over 12 hours each, and I lost track of how many km walked. And one punctured tyre. But we did stop for some epic ingress meet ups!

I'm grateful for the privilege of living in a wealthy Western country - I can drive on roads and buy food at the supermarket and enjoy indoor plumbing and grid electricity and a high standard of sanitation and general social services.
I'm grateful for the brush cutter being repaired under warranty so the garden is looking tidy again. I'm still in shock at something breaking before the warranty expires and not the week after).

#GooglePhotos keeps popping up flashback moments. I'm grateful for the nice ones.
Well I'm grateful for the bad ones too - they remind me of how much better I am now.

I'm grateful for Shark Girl. She's a special kind of awesome.

And I'm grateful for getting a screw stuck in my car tyre. I have no idea how it will be a good thing to have to replace a relatively new 4WD tyre, but maybe the delay of getting a flat meant we missed out on getting crashed by a truck running a red light five minutes later. Or tomorrow when I go to the tyre shop for a new one there'll be some great thing I didn't know would happen. Logic?

"If your friend abuses someone, and you know it, proclaiming to the victim that you ‘don’t want to choose a side’ IS choosing sides. You are choosing the abuser’s side”
So much this. So. Much. This.

I would like to print out Captain Awkward's response and staple it onto the faces of certain individuals... But those people already made their position clear. Those people did pick a side - the side of the abuser. And I already took note of that and let those people out of my life.

Self care and healing isn't about keeping all your friends and relations even if they enable an abuser. It's about getting all the toxic, abusive people out of your life, surrounding yourself with healthy relationships. The people who deny or ignore abuse are abusers themselves.

I'm grateful for teenlet and bonus daughter making dinner tonight. Was tasty.
I'm grateful for finding energy to clean the house. It's shiny. Even the bottom drawer in the fridge.
I'm grateful for another thing but I can't think of one right now.
Someone else say something they are grateful for, I'm starting to fail at this.

Today I'm grateful for a nice day out. I'm very very very tired now, but I managed a massive day without any panic.

I'm grateful for an incredible lunch with a good friend. Best Japanese bento ever. Omg noms! I ated too much, but it was worth it.

I'm grateful for achieving a goal I thought was too much of a challenge.

Ban Ki-moon slams continued discrimination of homosexuality at First UN Leaders meeting on LGBTQ rights
#LGBTQ #humanrights #UN

At this week's UN General Assembly, the first meeting of the UN Leaders on LGBTQ rights, several countries came under scrutiny for continuing to criminalise and legally sanction the discrimination of people on the basis of their sexual gender identity.

"I ask those who use religious or cultural arguments to deprive LGBT people of their human rights: what do you gain by making others less equal?" Ban asked.

"Is your religion or culture so weak that the only way you can sustain it is by denying others their basic rights?"

While some countries were praised for recognising same sex marriage and for legalising homosexuality, others were condemned for continuing "draconian" laws that are "on... more »

Ban called on all nations to recognise the rights of all people, regardless of their sexual orientation.___

Kidlet playing on aerial silk - not her proper routine that she's working on, just a random improvised show. And I think to myself... This is what she does when she's just messing around - her skill when she really practises is quite astounding.

What does it mean to be grateful?
The purpose of these posts is to focus on the positive things, no matter how small they might seem, no matter how overwhelming the negative...

So I took a break. Sometimes that's what's needed, so there's a sense of genuine gratitude and not just a rote habit.

I went for a long walk in the rainforest at the top of a mountain and I took no photos.

I spent time regrouping myself. I let myself fall apart, just to remember how to protect myself from being broken.

Transgender woman becomes the first female soldier to serve on the front line in the British Army
#LGBTQ #gender #trans #equality #military #uk

Chloe Allen, 24, joined the army in 2012 as a man but started her transition this month, beginning hormone therapy.
Though she initially thought she would have to leave her post as a rifleman and armoured truck driver in the First Battalion Scots Guards because of the restrictions on females serving on the front line, Allen was met with the support of superior officers and was told she could stay in her role.

In July this year, many of the rules which restricted women from serving in Ground Close Combat units were lifted, allowing women to be recruited and trained for the front line, however the army wasn't expecting any female infantrymen to be recruited for two more years.

Transgender woman becomes the first female soldier to serve on the front line in the British Army
#LGBTQ #gender #trans #equality #military #uk

Though she initially thought she would have to leave her post as a rifleman and armoured truck driver in the First Battalion Scots Guards because of the restrictions on females serving on the front line, Allen was met with the support of superior officers and was told she could stay in her role.

In July this year, many of the rules which restricted women from serving in Ground Close Combat units were lifted, allowing women to be recruited and trained for the front line, however the army wasn't expecting any female infantrymen to be recruited for two more years.

Allen reportedly commented that she felt relieved to openly talk about her feelings and identity.
She said: “It’s a great honour to make history. I’m just looked at as a normal person.” and she would love to “inspire people to come out and be themselves.”
She added: “As much as it’s a big bad world, it’s not as bad as people think and it’s easier when you’ve got your mates and your bosses behind you.”

A spokesperson for the British army said recruiters needed to “tap into all sections of society... to make sure as far as possible they are inclusive” to get the people needed for the army.
“Now are we perfect? No. Do we still have pockets of homophobia? Yes, I’m afraid we do. Are we trying to address it? Yes.”

The fact that Chloe Allen is not only allowed to continue serving in the military, but remain as a front line soldier during her transition is a huge step for transgender human rights, and despite the challenges, the armed forces are openly taking a stance of being inclusive, shows immense positive change. ___

The rainforest is a beautiful place, full of magic... the sound of the wind in the trees, the trickle water in the stream, birdsong chirping.
Of course the nature is beautiful, blooming flowers and lush ferns.
But it's not ART until the picture has had a dozen filters added :)

Living with wild snakes
#Australia #snake #wildlife
Just came up the stairs, only to meet this friendly carpet python hanging about by kidlet's bedroom window. He looked me, I looked at him. I smiled and asked if I could take a picture... he slithered quickly up into the ceiling before I could get the camera open.
But I got a shot of his tail before he disappeared, he's clearly shed a skin recently, so shiny and bright. And now I hear him snaking around in the crawl space above my bed.

The tiny Ethiopian village that runs on equality and human rights
#humanrights #equality #ethiopia #inspiring
Awra Amba is a commune of less than 500 people where me and women have equal rights, every child has the right to education and is few from child labour and the elderly are cared for with respect.

Gender equality is non-negotiable. Men are accountable for half the housework and child rearing, while women make up half the workforce in otherwise male professions such as plowing fields and weaving.
There is no shame or awkwardness for those performing these jobs. Customs dating back millennia have been eradicated in a single generation. One saying of Nuru’s is often repeated throughout the community: “Doing a ‘women’s job’ does not change my maleness—it changes my ignorance.”

I'm grateful for speaking my truth. Standing up for myself and expressing myself in the face of nasty people. Somehow I found the ground to stand on and the courage to stand on it.

I'm grateful for the snake in my bedroom ceiling. Last night there was some small critter making annoying scritching noises in the wall above my bed. This morning I heard the big snake slithering in the ceiling... Now there's no more annoying critter :)

I'm grateful for Shark Girl making me an incredible dinner. I was really craving sauteed greens and mushrooms (which Shark Girl dislikes so I rarely get them), but she knew I was having a rough day so she bought mushrooms and even a very, very nice steak, and cooked it all to perfection. Serious noms.

First openly gay aboriginal man elected to parliament in Australia's Northern Territory
#LGBTQ #Australia
Chansey Paech, an openly gay native Australian aboriginal won a seat in parliament in the Northern Territory, despite smear campaigns from opposing parties trying to discredit him based on his sexuality. The people of the electorate made it very clear - they don't care about the candidate's sexual orientation, they just want fair representation.
This is the kind of attitude that shows the country is moving in the right direction - sexual orientation should be irrelevant to one's ability to do a job, definitely irrelevant to political office.

Shark baby!
Dis is mah baby sharkling.
Us sharks are very private about our breeding grounds and nurseries. There's been lots of fuss in the news lately because some researchers found a white shark nursery. This is great if you're a friendly researcher who wants to protect sharks, but notsomuch if you're a nasty shark killer.
So please be kind to the bebeh sharks.

Bolivia becomes the latest country to allow transgender people to have their ID documents changed to reflect their gender identity
#LGBTQ #trans #gender #equality #humanrights #Bolivia

This week a law that was passed in May came into effect, allowing transgender people have their official documents changed to show their gender in alignment with their identity.
The only restriction being that the changes can be made only by people over 18 years of age and only after being assessed by a psychiatrist. The LGBTQ community has welcomed the move despite the restrictions, with more than a thousand people estimated to apply for new documents immediately.

Whale watching with a shark

Today Shark Girl and I went into town to run some errands, and we paused for a hot chocolate up on the headland, enjoying the sunshine and watching a storm rolling in. And there were a couple of whales playing in the ocean, breaching and flipping their tails in the waves!

Clearly I need a better camera than my phone if I want to take photos of whales. But you can kinda see a tail in there.

So it was a good day.
I'm grateful for sun and rain.
I'm grateful for hot chocolate
I'm grateful for sharks and whales and all the creatures in the ocean, and extra grateful that I live in a place where I can see them easily. There's almost always friendly dolphins at our local beach.

National Homicidal Death Bird Day is coming up!
That's right, the cassowary - an evolved dinosaur that's 'a cross between an angry chicken and a backhoe' - a bird weighing 85kg with massive talons on its feet - gets a national day in Australia. Because if we don't pay then sufficient sacrificial tribute (in the form of small children dressed as quandongs), they will overrun the country and kill us all.
Because Australia. Everything is trying to kill you.

So, I lost my patience with someone. In my defence, I've been really really patient with this person and bit my tongue a thousand times. But I finally hit my limit of 'flat earth theory - Orlando and Sandy Hook were hoaxes - all traffic laws and fines are unlawful and there should be no penalty for running red lights, drink driving or driving with an infant not in a seat belt, etc'. This person was completely unable to substantiate any of their claims, but "he's done all this research on the internet! And anyone who doesn't get successful results in fighting the legal system failed because they did it wrong" (according to the guy who's never actually tried any of these things).

So now he has to choose to either keep his tinfoil hat to himself or move on. So I think that's a good thing.

I'm standing up for my boundaries.

I got to play with a cute squishy baby. That is definitely a thing I'm grateful for.
The weather was gorgeous. I got to lie in the sun on my deck.

Kidlet's best friend is staying with us again, so that's good. I have an extra mouth to feed and more dishes to do, but the kids are happy. I'm grateful for visiting friends.

And I cooked a tasty red thai curry and did all the dishes. I hate washing dishes but I'm grateful when they're all done.

Pillow spider
This cute little fellow was jumping around on my pillow when I woke up this morning. Such cute eyes. He probably just wanted some coffee.

Shark cam!
#shark #science #savesharks #Australia #ocean
South Australian research team is tagging great white shark populations with monitoring devices that include a camera as well as speed and motion sensors. Basically giving the sharks a GoPro.
Of course it's a vital piece of the puzzle into shark preservation and ocean ecosystems, the information gathered will be of invaluable use to researchers helping us improve our understanding of these gorgeous creatures.
But mostly it's really cool.
Also crowd funded, so you can participate!

Australia - where killer evolved dinosaurs still walk the earth and come into people's houses looking to eat them
#Australia #straya #everythingistryingtokillyou #wildlife
Cassowaries... The world's deadliest bird. They stand about as tall as a human, have a talon that can tear your face off, a sharp beak for pecking and a vicious steak to match their killer instinct.

Now they've escalated their killing rampage of terror to breaking and entering. Of course their legal counsel issued a statement that they're just looking for table scraps, but us Aussies know this is just cover up propaganda sponsored by the tourism board to keep visitors coming to Australia. Really the birds are looking for human prey. Because people are crunchy and good with ketchup.

I'd like to be able to warn everyone to run off they see a cassowary... But they can run faster... more »

It's Australia - everything is trying to kill you.
