If you have a great memory and want to brag to your friends that you wrote a book, come to me!

Or,

If you are more of a visual person, and you do not read books anymore, it can be very good to write in order to remember. According to Meltzer’s 2018 book Executive function in education: From theory to practice published with Guilford Publications, writing is a form of fighting such things as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Avoiding Pitfalls of the Scam Artist (Originally Published on The Shoestring.com)


You can find scam artists big and small every where you look in the world today. It may be a telemarketer offering you a trip that sounds too good to be true. It might be a car mechanic that overcharges you for an oil change. It can even be a friend who offers you a great job in a business that is basically shrouded in fraud. It can even be advice from a tarot reader.

One really has to watch themselves in the world today to make sure they are not a victim of scams. Just today, when I was buying coffee and a muffin at Loblaws, the price I paid yesterday, $1.60 CDN became $1.89 CDN today. The cashier told me that the price had gone up and it was interesting how I even made a mental note that she threw away the receipt I was supposed to receive when I bought my coffee yesterday.

Now, this is a small example, but my Dad was getting his a turn signal on his car fixed yesterday at a garage in Toronto where he goes often. The price for the service doubled from the quote. Now is this a fair business practice? Wouldn’t it be nice if we lived in a world where people told the truth?

Thinking that Canadians are more honest than other people are is fiction. Thinking that your own cultural group will not rip you off just as much as another culture would is also a non-realistic idea too. As a freelance writer, I was doing an advertorial (PR on my website) for a photographer where we agreed upon the payment and the only reason I’m writing about it in this article is that I was never paid for the work I did for him. He’s brown like me and crooked as a fault line after an earthquake.

Some of the ways to avoid scam artists are to ask questions. If something seems fishy – it probably is. Most of us know that saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but if you read it, then you can. Learn to read a situation, delve into it and look at any given scam situation closely.

If someone calls you asking you to give your money for something that seems too low in cost for what you’re getting – like a trip to Florida for a fraction of the price – question this. In many cases like this, whether dealing with a cashier, car mechanic or bank, it’s sometimes not the person employed themselves who are a fault – but there are some bad business practices going on.

Advice about checking out Better Business Bureaus is a good idea. I’ve heard about people who have been scammed by gym memberships, but this one place that I went to for a year called Trainers Fitness in Toronto was a trustworthy place. Their only sin was one woman asked me some noisy questions because I was good about fully using my membership, but they did not scam me financially and I lost weight. A win-win situation.

When doing business, try to get recommendations from people you respect. But, remember, sometimes the way a business or businessperson will treat your friend, co-worker or even family member is not the way they will treat you. You still have to read into the situation.

Good luck in all of your business dealings – and may wish you all a scam-free day!

Wildfire Preparation


Protect your property from wildfires preparation using DIY!

Photo Courtesy of Dreamstime.com

Wildfires can be a nightmare for anyone’s property, destroying everything that they own, and everything that they have worked so hard to achieve in life, in order to put a roof over their head for their family, for their loved ones, and if they use the property as rental property, for their source income. Protecting your home from wildfires is vitally important for not just the safety of where you live and live being, but also for the protection of your financial well-being. Understanding this is part and parcel of being a homeowner which is why most people ensure that they have home insurance.

With all of this understood, this article focuses on how you can, with do-it-yourself (DIY) methods, help you and your family to protect your home from the dangers of wildfires.

You can do this yourself – DIY! Here’s how:

1. Safeguarding Flammable Materials

You would be surprised, even having a barbecue out in your backyard with the wind blowing too strong can be the start of destroying your property with a wildfire. The wisest choice really is to the only barbecue on days where you have taken the time to check the weather conditions in order to ensure that it is not too windy outside – and this takes preparation, organization, and maturity.

Other things that are flammable that need to be safeguarded include anything that is legal because that is all you should be doing, plus flammable such as cigarette smoking. Key ways of ensuring that piles of leftover cigarette butts outside on your property do not turn into a raging wildfire where you need to exist from your basement window in order to escape the potential disaster of your fire-destroyed home, is to fill containers, they could be reusable containers that you have collected just from purchasing groceries, it needs to be something that is not of a substance that is flammable itself such as plastic or tin or metal, and you fill it with water and ensure that any stale cigarette butts that have been used are in an element that is completely contrary to the fire that it once burned – such as water.

If the cigarette butts pile up too fast, you can either choose to add more water to ensure that there is not one single possibility that idle cigarette butts could create a fire, plus just simply use your clean spit and spit on them.

2. Keeping Fire Extinguishers on Your Property

Keeping fire extinguishers on your property is a must. You can even find one at the least expensive department store; this is how readily available fire extinguishers are. You can purchase one that is of a good size for your home or outside property, this means that the size of the fire extinguisher would depend on the size of your property, as well as the size of your home.

3. Keeping Water Hoses and Buckets on Your Property

Your home should be equipped with an outside water hose vent. The vent is always good to have, but making sure that you have a hose attached to the water hose vent is vital to ensure that if there were a wildfire on your property or inside your home, you have the ammunition to ensure that the wildfire can be extinguished. The longer the hose is the better hose. Having buckets around or buckets that are close to where you live and on your property will also ensure that if there are areas of fire that you cannot reach with the hose that you can fill a bucket with just enough water in order to take the wildfire out.

4. Ensuring that Your Property is intricately and Targeted with Key Fire Alarms Placements

Fire alarms are a wonderful thing and most people understand their necessity for the inside of your home, but, what about outside your home? There could be a fire that begins with your vehicle that is stationed outside your home, or, at a neighbor’s home, and you are unaware and it is a dangerous wildfire that could destroy your home.

Experts recommend that having security cameras, as well as security alarms are just as important as fire alarms, not just to protect your property from criminal theft, but also to protect your property from property damage from your neighbor’s property, and it could even end up being from a house that is far enough away that you had not thought of it.

5. Consistently Checking Your Fire Alarms

Although yes, security cameras are important as well, regular tests of your fire alarm are also important to ensure the protection of your home and your property from wildfire and to always be prepared to fight the worst case scenario.

6. Designated No Smoking Signs on Your Property

Additional advice that experts recommend for wildfire protection includes making a safe visit to a home store that is not far from where you live and purchasing “No Smoking” signs, even if you smoke. If there are people who tend to trespass on your property who do smoke and something that they are smoking could cause a fire to your property, or, you have visitors over or guests who smoke who do the same thing, the “No Smoking” sign will release you from any legal liabilities that may be caused by a wildfire that occurs on your property.

Mosquito Repelling Plants


Keeping a mosquito repellant garden to protect yourself – DIY!

Photo Courtesy of Unsplash.com

Building a garden that has a mix of the plants you love, plus mosquito repellant plants, or a garden that is completely mosquito repellant can prove to surround your property with the protection you would love to have as you enjoy your property without being bitten by sometimes pesky mosquitos. If you are the kind of person that is always telling people something along these lines: “mosquitos really love my blood,” you will appreciate this article for the protection that a mosquito repellant garden can provide to you while you are relaxing on your property, as well as the avoidance of mosquitos entering the interior your home from outside of your property.

You can do this yourself – DIY! Here’s how:

1. Some Great Mosquito Repellant Plants

Many of the mosquito repellant plants have a wonderful aroma that is pungent, which is the exact reason why mosquitos are repelled by these plants. The lemon plant, for example, has a citrusy scent that can fill the air, with even such a strong scent for those people who can smell, that you cannot mistake a lemon plant for even an orange plant. Catnip is something that smells so strong that it can even put a cat into a relaxed enough mood that an agitated one will sleep a longer period of time after playing. Marigolds are a bright color that has a true flower scent that again repels mosquitos. Basil again is a strong smelling plant, that is also used in the food and some people also have essential oils with the scent of basil as well. Lavender is commonly known to be a relaxing scent; however, the scent is strong and tends to repel the skin biting mosquitoes. Peppermint is also a calming scent; however, the strength of its smell is something that drives mosquitos away from humans and other animals. The stories of garlic warding off the biting threats of Dracula in stories not just work for Dracula, it also works for the biting threats of mosquitos as well.

There are a number of beautiful mosquito repellant plants that you can add to your garden in order to remain bitten-free all throughout the mosquito seasons. Lemon balm plants, catnip plants, marigold plants, basil plants, lavender plants, peppermint plants or mint plants, and garlic plants are all wonderful choices for ensuring that everything from a garden in a park, to a community garden, to a small garden in your front yard or back yard, to a lavish huge private garden remains mosquito-free.

2. Great Places on Your Property to Grow these Gardens

The number one thing to think of with mosquitos is that they are smart. Many people who have been bitten by mosquitos know that always do tend to be bitten on their shins, as well as in areas were the bites of mosquitos have been so sneaky that while you were bitten, you could not swat at them towards their death which would bring you to not need to scratch your skin for a good week after the bite. Making sure that you plant mosquito repellant plants low to the ground is extremely important because this is the primary intuition of a mosquito, bite where they cannot receive swats of death.

Great target areas to plant mosquito-free gardens will tend to be those areas where people tend to either congregate, or pass by, or relax and enjoy the good weather. This would then mean entryways, front and back areas of homes, plus along border lines of a property in order to have a more inviting essence to the environment that will help people to not be bitten by mosquitos.     

3. How to Grow a Mosquito Repellant Garden

Finding the plant seeds for lemon balm plants, catnip plants, marigold plants, basil plants, lavender plants, peppermint plants or mint plants, and garlic plants, is relatively inexpensive and can be widely purchased at flower shops, grocery shops, garden centres, plus even at some hardware stores and home stores.

Once you have taken time to also purchase really any grade of medium quality soil to plant these essential mosquito-fighting plants, watering the plants, making sure they have sufficient sunlight, plus keeping a constant watch and care of the plants is essential to help them grow.

How to Make and Hang a Rope Swing


Flying made easy by making and hanging a rope swing with DIY!

Usually, when children are young, they come to an age where all their biggest worries are to fight over who gets to swing on the swings in the playground with other children. As you grow older, you may have children or desire to have a hanging rope swing right on your own property, even if just for the sake of allowing your child or children to have their own swing to play with instead of fighting over swing time at the park with other children.

This article will show you how to make a rope swing, as well as how to hang it right in your front yard or back yard depending on how your home is constructed. This article will also provide tips for those people who do not have the luxury of a back yard or front yard to make or hang a rope swing. It is possible to make and to hang a rope swing right inside any interior of a home from the doorways that are within. This article will provide tips on that as well.

You can do this yourself – DIY! Here’s how:

1. How to Make a Rope Swing for the Outdoors

Making a rope swing for the outdoors is a lot of fun! What you can first is either go to your local hardware or home shop and purchase long pieces of rope string, plus pre-cut pieces of wood or pieces of plastic that can be used as a seat. You want to make sure that as you make the swing that it will hold your weight. Tying and intertwining about 25 pieces of rope swing together will ensure that is a thick enough support not just for a child, but also for an adult as well. When it comes to applying a plastic seat, you can use crazy glue that you can purchase at a dollar store in order to support your seat on the swing. If you are using a pre-cut wood seat, the same rule applies with the crazy glue to glue to the pieces of rope in order to ensure that you are creating a swing for the outdoors that you can have tons of fun with!

2. How to Hang the Rope Swing

When it comes to hanging the rope swing outdoors, you want to make sure that you are doing it in a safe environment. The best bet is to make sure that there is natural grass underneath your feet, just in case you were to swing too hard and fall. Even astroturf is something that can be rough to fall on depending on what you are wearing while you swing on the swing, but if you do have astroturf on your property, please just make sure that your arms and legs are covered while you swing on your swing.

Choosing a tree to hang the swing and tying the knot and again supporting the knot with crazy glue is a good idea. You may worry: “well, what if I want to take down the swing?” All you would need to do if you want to take down the swing is to cut away at it with something sharp enough to get the job done to unhook the swing from the tree it is tied on.

3. How to Make a Swing for the Indoors

Making a swing for the indoors can be a lot of fun as well! The difference is that you have some options here, which you also have for the outdoors as well. Some people even for the outdoors will simply choose to purchase a pre-made swing and to put it up in a safe place with natural grass underneath. With the indoors, you can purchase pre-made swings, if you were to dig long enough on sites such as Craigslist or Kijiji, or shop online in general, you can find some great pre-made swings either for the indoors or outdoors where if they come plain, you can customize them and personalize them by painting them or putting stickers on them yourself or with your family, friends, and children.

4. How to Hang a Rope Swing for the Indoors

Choosing a door frame is one of the best ways to hang a swing that would be indoors in your home. You would need the right safety hooks because these safety hooks need to stick into the actual door and door frame so that the indoor swing is safely harnessed. Many of these pre-made indoor swings come with instructions, so please make sure that you read the instructions carefully and that you also have home insurance as a backup.

5. Safety Precautions for Both Inside and Outside of Your Home with Rope Swings

Swinging on a swing is a lot of fun, but you need to make sure that you are wearing protective shoes, protective clothing, as well as have your arms and your legs covered just to prevent from everlasting damages from any falls that may occur if you are the kind of person that gets really excited about swinging on a swing and you enjoy really flying through the air. Nothing is wrong with having fun, please just protect yourself so that you do not get hurt.

Create great garden borders surrounding your home with DIY!

Surrounding your home with fences in order to mark your property can sometimes not be the most beautiful choice visually to display your pride, your home, your property. Even when you have some creative choice in a home that you are renting, creating garden barriers may prove to be a visual improvement for a DIY project to fences. Garden barriers can also be far more inviting if you are someone who wants great vibrations and positive energy to flow around your home, in comparison to fences. Fences can block energy, be too much of a guard, whereas, garden barriers show that you will be constantly growing, blossoming, and eternal to the spirits of nature as long as the world turns.

Bringing down the fences and staking out your territory with something uplifting as garden barriers may be just the way to also spruce up the energy on your street, in your neighborhood, and throughout your community, but let’s start with your home.

You can do this yourself – DIY! Here’s how:

1. Dig out those Fences

If you do not have the tools to bring down the fences around your home, one of the first things you can do is just check on Google and/or Yelp in order to find places in your neighborhood where you can rent the tools to raze down your fences. Make sure that you are wearing protective gloves, protective eyeglasses, and wearing protective clothing, plus protective shoes. Remember to keep your hair back, or anything that could create a problem and if it’s your first time doing this, just take your time, remember – Rome was not built in a day.

2. Purchasing Mulch, Dirt, and Bushes, and Flowers

You can do the shopping for this before you raze down your fences or after the fences are down. The most important thing in many ways is to ensure that you purchase the mulch, the dirt, and bushes, and flowers at a reasonable price, which means often targeting the best time to purchase which is at the height of the planting season when these items will not be as expensive for this DIY project. We’ll continue to go through what you do with all of this great stuff that is going to make your property look gorgeous.

3. The Dirt Goes First, and then the Mulch, Plant the Bushes and the Flowers Last

The dirt will remarkably help to ensure that any residue from digging up your fences instantly disappears when the dirt covers it. The mulch will help as well to create a beautiful appearance that is prettier in most people’s view of just dirt. You can also make sure that you purchase glistening mulch in a variety of colors from black, to brown, to light brown, to reddish brown, etc., in order to complement the colors of your home. The same goes with the shades of the bushes and the flowers that you choose. Some people decide that will not go with the flowers, and this is absolutely fine. It’s up to you. It’s your home. At the end of the day adding the flowers can depend heavily on the climate conditions of where you live. If the flowers will last throughout the year because you live in warmer weather, I would recommend them. If you live in colder climates, such as really cold climates, you may even want to choose evergreens and/or perineal bushes.

4. Maintain that Border

Yes, many people like fences because they’re easy to maintain and garden barriers are more challenging to maintain. Please take this project on as a continuous DIY project if you are willing to put in the long-term effort in order to ensure that the garden barrier around your property, your home, is beautiful for decades to come.

5. You can even Choose to Add Decorative Lights Year-round, or Seasonally

You can make your garden border around your home is more eye-catching by adding lights year-round, or just on special occasions throughout the year. Expect people to stare when they pass by your home. Don’t forget to congratulate yourself on what you’ve done and share it with those you care about.

Common Laws about Fences and Barriers


Know the law and keep yourself and your property protected!

When property has fences up, such as single-detached homes, semi-detached homes, or even row townhouses, even apartment buildings, or areas are encased by fences, and private pathways and laneways are clearly only to be entered by its inhabitants of the area ideally, there are laws that are enforced in your state and in your region in order to protect you and what you own from intruders who may cause trouble.

For example, when a single-detached home has a fence surrounding its area, however, there is a public sidewalk right in front of the home, for most people who do not own the home, they must understand that by law they are only allowed to be on the property to view it from the sidewalk, rather than to trespass onto the property inside of the fence. Even the small part of the sidewalk that will be closest to the single-detached home that stretches out to a wider sidewalk for people to use publicly, the smaller side of the sidewalk is an indication and a clear visible legal marker that even if an uninvited guest were to step onto that smaller sidewalk in front of the single-detached home, just to use that as an example, the person or individuals, or even a dog passing by with their owner is breaking the law.

You can do this yourself – DIY! Here’s how:

1. Laws Shared Homes Such as Semi-Detached Homes

Sometimes semi-detached homeowners can on both sides have quarrels concerning property barriers and the common laws concerning fencing. Clearly, the fence that would divide the home, or even barriers such as sidewalks that are shared, plus even the manicuring of the grass that would divide the homes is a clear indication of where the property barriers are between the semi-detached homes. When there is a fence, this is clear. On one side is one owner’s part, and on the other side is the other owner’s part. Sometimes fencing and barriers can also create conflicts with shared property such as trees and bushes. If a tree is on shared property, the other owner would not have the right to cut anything on the tree, even to trim it without the other home owner’s permission if there are questionable barrier markings between the semi-detached homes.

2. Private Laneways and Alleyways

In private laneways that are the sole property of one or more homeowners, it must be kept in mind that the state and/or region that preside over the governance of the area really should ensure that there is a “Do Not Enter” or “No Trespassing” signs on the property. Immediately when such signs are visible it is clear to anyone who can see that they are not supposed to be on the property without the permission of the homeowner(s).

3. Shared Private Laneways and Alleys

In shared private laneways and alleys, again, it is even more important that the government level responsible ensures that there is “Do Not Enter” and “No Trespassing” signs within the area so there are not any intruders that enter. The government in question is truly putting themselves at risk of legal liabilities if there were to be any break-ins within that area because there were not such signs placed visibly for basically bad criminals to see.

4. Fencing and Barriers and Parking

Barriers are also a concern when it comes to parked cars. People need to understand that if at the back of someone’s home they have a fence in which they park on their own property and there could be natural grass underneath this property, that by no means, without the permission of the homeowner(s) can they park on that property, or place any kind of vehicle such as an e-bike, bike, motorcycle, etc. The same rules apply to not being stationed in front of any public territory in a region where there are “No Parking” signs. There are many private homeowners who would put these signs up, however, it is a great violation and a great intrusion for anyone to park anything that moves that are using for transportation purposes on any kind of private property without the permission of the homeowner(s). It is against the law.

5. More Public Areas Close to Private Property

Regarding fencing and barriers that are closer to a collective grouping of private property, it is important that anyone that either invited and/or uninvited is consistently mindful to ensure that they are doing such things as walking their dog in legally legislated areas of even a park, plus not smoking in areas of a park that they are not supposed to be smoking in, plus not entering private community garden gardens that are unlocked without the permission collectively of even one community garden owner. All of these actions if done – are against the law.

F*** Off Josh: Harassment Defined


Act 1

You f****** bitch,

You f****** bitch

I could hear this through his closed windows from houses away, screaming at me.

Police at A & W told me when they knew I had worked in the courts:

“We can get James, and he will be detained.”

At the end of the day, I meant, not long enough. Look, this jerk even lives in my neighbourhood.

Act 2

Sitting on his balcony, singing

Singing my name

Telling me bad songs with my name

Pictures of his once beautiful daughters that he molested

He thinks everyone else is a molester like him

He has a criminal record

Lost his job of thirty years for diddling children

Irene in the courts taught me that word = diddling

I know he wants me to write this. He wants to be a star. I take pity. The only reason I ever helped him is that I took pity. I did what the occult shop told me to do as I wear my cross, a God-fearing Christian, and he’s Jewish, and he was trying to kill me with a lock of my hair.

Now, do you know why some women wear weaves and hijabs and wigs?

Act 3

“F*** off, Josh,”

Just not funny

Standing in my ‘hood as I knew I should just do my friggin’ exercise

Knew the w***** was on probation

Probation officer calls and tells him it was violized

I would have killed him and got away Scott-free.

I can’t even do my work with this nut job around. Look online = he even calls himself that = everyone knew he was crazy including the Ontario Arts Council = I simply took Christian pity. Which yes is talking to some crazy people?

This nut job is trying to kill me and my family and it’s not just me in the neighbourhood. All he wants even is a good screw and money. Who knew he would not get either from me? Who then, is his next victim?

Using Mayonnaise in Dreadlocks


For decades I have had good Somali, Ethiopian and Eritrean friends of mine telling me to use mayonnaise in my hair. Finally, I decided to listen when I saw some on sale at Loblaws. Please keep in mind, using mayonnaise in either dreadlocks or any type of hair is best to cure extreme dry hair conditions – when you want to.

I bought some canola mayonnaise earlier this year and it is really good! The avocado one would have been better and I know this, but it was not on sale :-). You do have to just put it in and wash it out because as my neighbour Duncan says, you do not want animals chasing after your head :-). It does help to make your hair feel great though! It is especially good for mature locs, as well as well as unlocked hair.

You can use it between washing with shampoo and rinse out your hair and then use your usual conditioner plus the mayonnaise to extra condition the hair.

You can also go through your usual hair washing routine of a pre-hot oil treatment, shampoo, conditioner and use the mayonnaise at the end of the hair washing routine. Then, you can also apply your oils after you have thoroughly rinsed out your hair.

I have seen a lot online that if you are going to use mayonnaise in your hair that you should not use it more than once a month. I think this would depend on your hair type and also the time of year regarding the climate.

Regardless of how you use mayonnaise for your hair either dreadlocked or not, it is a great conditioner and will truly have your hair feeling silky.

I have been using the mayonnaise every time I wash my hair and it works just fine. I have mature dreadlocks/locs though.

“Locs and Talk” – Offered at Kakonge Salon


Back in 2007, I had cut off all of my hair. This photo above is how I look today with my glasses as of Friday, July 7, 2017, at 8:42 p.m. EDT. I already look different, as of July 16, 2017, at 5:59 p.m. EDT and I will tell you why right now.

If you are wondering, how could I possibly look different? Well, you do also. A wise and gentle homeopathic doctor told me not too long ago when I went to her to quit smoking cigarettes that the body renews its cells every three months. This is exactly why people who have been once been diagnosed with cancer can have a different diagnosis only months later there are not any cancer cells in the body. This is why people with mental illness can go decades without a remission. This is also why even people who have been diagnosed with diabetes can live to be 100+ years old. Yes, the homeopath is right and each of us is changing every single day, every single moment, every single second. All of us – regardless of age.

I used Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner and shampooed with Dr. Bronner’s peppermint shampoo, washed my skin with the citrus one, used Aveeno Intensive Care skin lotion after washing and that was it for about 10 years. Oh yes, I would also use during that time whatever conditioner I could find, but when I was in my 20s, I really loved Aveda products. Before I used the Rosemary Mint Aveda conditioner. The Aveda website also has a 20 percent discount going on recently for Canadian customers. The only reason why I do not use the Aveda conditioner anymore is that it is not recommended for locs. Instead, since my locs are mature, I use a selection of my oils in warmer weather and all of the oils in colder weather to deep condition my locs. My hair oils are featured on this site.

I also recently started pre-conditioning my hair before washes with mayonnaise since Somali, Eritrean and Ethiopian people have sworn by it and told me about it for years. You need to use the natural and/or organic mayonnaise that you can find in a health section of a grocery store or a health food store. The commercial mayonnaise has sugar, where the more organic one has just salt and not sugar. I also try to eat eggs at least three times a week. I have one loc in the back of my head that is past the middle of my back and I am rather tall. Recently, I have noticed about two locs in total that is into the middle of my back.

Loc care really is simple! It need not be complicated. I would say that the most important thing that I used to have for my locs is Dr. Bronner’s shampoo and my oils. Now, I have decided to use Dr. Bronner’s shampoo only if I am finding a lot of build-up in my hair, as well as for cleaning purposes around the home because it is actually an all-purpose shampoo which is why it could appear to be drying on more mature hair.

I keep the hair oils in and help to deep condition my locs with a heating cap when the weather is rather dry. Thank goodness Toronto is humid. I have come to appreciate it for its humidity.

The hair oils are a must for mature loced hair that is of African origin. I have recently started using Herbal Glo Shampoo for Thinning Hair, plus the compatible conditioner. So far, so good. I still pre-condition with the mayonnaise, the oils and put the Giovanni in right after I have shampooed. Sometimes I also use Maui Moisture Coconut as a pre-conditioner as well. Well, often, I do use Maui Moisture to pre-condition my hair. Giovanni leaves too many white marks in black coloured hair if you put it in when your hair is not wet. Read More

Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada Show, August 19-21, Announces New Country Pavilions to Meet Demands of Booming Canadian Apparel Industry


Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada Show, August 19-21, Announces New Country Pavilions to Meet Demands of Booming Canadian Apparel Industry

Ghana, Peru and Turkey Pavilions among new additions to the show, bringing their best manufacturers and factory representatives ready to supply to Canadian Brands and Retailers

Toronto, ON, July 11, 2019 — With Canada’s apparel market forecast to be worth almost 39 billion Canadian (29.66 billion U.S.) dollars by 2020 — a 20 percent increase from 2016 — representatives from more than 20 countries will convene in Toronto next month at the Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada (ATSC) 2019 show to present international trade opportunities to the booming Canadian apparel sector.

“In spite of global trade uncertainties, the Canadian apparel and textiles industry is thriving, with an increasing number of Canadian businesses looking for alternative sources of supply to keep up the pace of growth,” said Jason Prescott, CEO of JP Communications, show producer and publisher of North America’s leading of B2B sourcing platform for finding wholesale companies and manufacturers, TopTenWholesale.com & Manufacturer.com.

To this end, ATSC has announced that it will introduce a number of new country pavilions at this year’s event to meet the needs of its expected 5,000 attendees. New offerings include Ghana, Peru and Turkey Pavilions, as well as a first-of-its-kind TESTEX Certified Factory Pavilion.

ATSC — which returns for the fourth year on August 19-21 in Toronto and August 23 in Montreal — is the industry’s go-to event, experiencing year-over-year growth and featuring hundreds of factories from around the globe, world-class conference sessions and unmatched networking opportunities under one roof.

“The show has become one of North America’s most significant sourcing trade fairs, delivering extensive international offerings and key education to meet the evolving needs of the industry,” Prescott said. “Nowhere else in Canada will you find to this scale of global ambassadors, trade commissioners, export councils and private sector executives coming together with thousands of apparel and textile industry representatives, from C-Level executives to SMEs and start-ups.”

Africa the next frontier for sourcing ready-made garments

With apparel and textile buyers of all sizes increasingly seeking flexible manufacturing options, the Ghana Export Promotion Authority will feature some of its region’s top, adaptable textile and ready-made garment producers in the new Ghana Pavilion.

“The desire for more flexible sourcing options has been among the top requests of our attendee base since the show launched in 2016, and we are pleased to deliver a new supply chain solution at this year’s event that addresses this need,” said Chase Vance, ATSC Director. “Whether buyers are looking for a dozen units or thousands to tens-of-thousands of units at a time, Ghanaian suppliers are willing to accommodate North American buyers, both large and small.”

An overview of the resources and benefits provided to Canadian businesses partnering with Ghana-based suppliers and factories will be presented on the opening day of the show as part of a panel discussion featuring Ghanaian government and private officials.

Peru brings lifestyle fashion, fibre content suited for the Canadian climate

In another show first, the Peru Pavilion will offer attendees an opportunity to experience unique Peruvian textiles and apparel first-hand. Recognized as a top producer and exporter of some of the world’s best cotton, alpaca and many another fall/winter fashion products ideal for cold climate, Peru will bring to Toronto leading manufacturers of some of the world’s best-knit sweaters for both fashion and function.

“Peruvian producers have the ability to adapt to the requirements of customers worldwide because we have modern standards of quality and high technology, giving priority to sustainability and responsible use of resources according to international standards like WRAP, GOT and others,” said Patricia Beltran, ATS Organizer for Peruvian exhibitors. “Our producers meet and exceed the needs and trends of the international market in terms of price, service, quality, flexibility and on-time delivery.”

In addition to visiting the Peru Pavilion, ATSC attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of sourcing from Peru in a Latin American panel discussion held during the trade show.

Turkey to unveil latest offerings from textile mills and full-package factories

Turkey has become an international hub for textile mills and full-package factories, and some of the country’s top producers will visit Canada for the first time, ready to do business with Canadians.

The delegation of Turkish exhibitors includes Abiteks and sister company Gaia-Sourcing.com, supplier to brands such as O’Neill, Espirit, Laurel, Bogner Jeans, S.Oliver and many others. The Tureks Group, which specializes in knit, woven, leather, denim, and seamless products, will also be on-site to unveil their latest capabilities to the buyers in attendance.

Show attendees will hear from the Turkish delegation during the opening ceremony, including Commercial Consul of Turkey in Toronto Mehmet Ekizoglu and Istanbul Textile and Apparel Export Union General Secretariat (ITKIB) officials Mehmet Ali Demiray, Selcuk Mehmet Kaya, and Timur Bozdemir.

TESTEX Certified Factory Pavilion sets the industry standard for Canadian buyers

ATSC has announced that Swiss textile testing and certification organization TESTEX will be returning to the show with a 10-booth pavilion – its largest presence to date — as part of the first TESTEX Certified Factory Pavilion. An anchor partner to ATSC since 2016, TESTEX will expand to feature a variety of textile mills and apparel factories for both knit and woven products for men, women, and children.

“Issues related to sustainability and compliance are at the forefront of sourcing and purchasing decisions for many enterprise-level buyers across North America,” Vance explained. “As a result, TESTEX has taken an industry leader, and through its pavilion, will present examples of manufacturers that have simplified the process to meet the most stringent compliant regulations in the global apparel and textile industry.”

Marc Sidler, TESTEX Chief Marketing Officer, will provide insight into these new standards — including requirements for the Canadian market — as well as trends in product testing, in an opening keynote speech on Day 2 of the show.

DULUX Colours of the Year


2020 Colour of the Year – Chinese Porcelain (DLX1160-6).

Deep blue skies ahead in home decor: DULUX Paints by PPG unveils inky cobalt as 2020 paint Colour of the Year

Complimentary warm teak named brand’s first stain Colour of the Year

TORONTO, August 15, 2019 – In today’s fast-paced, data-driven world where stress and anxiety are all too common, people can find refuge from their blues by surrounding themselves with, well, blue. Not just any blue, though – think deep, comforting, inky cobalt blue.

That’s the message of trend forecasters at DULUX® Paints by PPG in unveiling the brand’s 2020 Colour of the Year – Chinese Porcelain (DLX1160-6). This rich and traditional hue combines the energy and brightness of cobalt blue with a muted, dark navy tone, emitting a feeling of calm, restfulness and hope.

“Everyone today is looking for an escape from technology, a way to slow down and infuse simplicity into their lives in an uplifting environment. This is, in part, why we’re craving blues like Chinese Porcelain,” said Rob McDonald, Senior Brand Manager, Dulux Paints by PPG. “Exuding depth, richness, and drama, next year’s blue brings us closer to natural elements such as the sea and sky – creating lavish serenity in any space.”

According to McDonald, the trending earth-tone aesthetic will be reflected in all facets of home decor in the coming year, highlighted by uncluttered spaces with organic, deep mineral and metallic tones that delight the senses.

“The colour palette shifts away from the cool, stark greys of the past and builds on last year’s introduction of warm shades that emit an air of old-world charm and craftsmanship, blending together classical and modern design elements to create sophisticated looks,” said McDonald.

With natural materials such as wood and rattan dominating this design movement, Dulux Paints by PPG has, for the first time, also announced a stunning Colour of the Year for 2020 – Teak, a warm, semi-transparent medium-brown stain that has a 1970s retro vibe with a richness that fits today’s world.

Introduction

            It’s 2009. A baby is born in the United Kingdom without a heart and sure to die at the point of death. The baby’s parents are frantic. The parents are older, in their mid-40s, and they had been trying to conceive a child for the last fifteen years and this baby girl was their last chance for sure. They are a loving couple that has all of the financial resources to give to a child, plus their strong bond of love within their relationship.

            The chief doctor on staff at the hospital in London, England, suggests that they can receive a heart from the Philippines in order to save the child’s life.

            Moving over to the Philippines…the chief doctor has texted a head hunter in the Philippines who knows that his job is to find a healthy heart quickly. The head hunter goes to the closest exercise gym and waits for a young girl to come out who looks as though she has a healthy heart.

            The head hunter kills the Filipino girl, cuts out her heart, and it is then transported by illegal flight methods to London, England within that day in order to save the life of the baby girl in London, England.

            The chief doctor performs the surgery on the baby girl that night at midnight, moving into the second day of the baby girl’s life, and the baby girl is now ten years old today and healthy.

            The secret of how the girl lived without being born with a heart is simply concealed by the chief doctor that there was a donor, based on legal means, that helped to keep the baby girl alive, as well, the parents of the baby girl did not know anything in 2009 when their child was born, nor even today, nor will ever know, what, why, who, and how, or even when, and how legally grievous the situation that had occurred in order to keep their child alive.

            The legal violations of laws in the scenario above are with the Human Tissue Act 2004, the Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013, and the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill. There will be a focus on India, Pakistan, and the Philippines as primary targets of human organ trafficking, as well as worldview encompassing Spain, Iran, and other areas of the Middle East as additional targets for human organ trafficking.

There will also be a discussion in this paper of the global seriousness of human organ transplant tourism, as well as human organ trafficking. The criminal element of human organ trafficking, as well as the laws in which it violates, will also be discussed.

Moral and legal issues associated with organ donation, human organ trafficking, as well as transplant tourism will also be discussed in this paper. There will also be the inclusion of a discussion on good way to solve or at least address the supply and the demand for human organ trafficking, as well as the cultural complications surrounding human organ trafficking.

Human Tissue Act 2004

            The Human Tissue Act of 2004clearly is delegated by parliament in the United Kingdom and applies to Wales, Northern Ireland, as well as England. The Human Tissue Authority for the United Kingdom helps to delegate the applicable laws and legal code of The Human Tissue Act.

            The Human Tissue Act of 2004 clearly outlines the legal rules and legal regulations of how to clean a dead body, handle human tissue of a corpse, as well as the proper and legal means of disposal of a corpse, as well as the human tissue that is involved with the dead body of humans. It is citation 30 of The Human Tissue Act of 2004 that is applicable to the complications that could be created with human organ trafficking, Human Tissue Act 2004 (c 30).

Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013

            This Act is applicable to the region of the United Kingdom of Wales. The Act was created and is administrated by the National Assembly of Wales.

A strong example of how The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013law works is that when people first receive their driver’s licence in Wales, and they are making the decision of whether or not they would want to donate organs in the case of a motor vehicle accident to someone else in order to save their lives by legal means, rather than any other method such as human organ trafficking, any person in Wales can legally decide that they do not want to donate their organs in the case of a fatal motor vehicle accident and/or they can also decide to donate their organs in the case of a fatal motor vehicle accident.

The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013 clearly states that the express wishes of anyone who opt-outs of donating their organs, as long as they are of sound mind and body and can legally make decisions for themselves, their wishes and their choices must be honoured or it would be a violation of the law that would be deemed legally punishable.

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill

                Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill is now into its third reading towards administration within the United Kingdom parliament. The third reading of this legislation took place on Tuesday, February 26, 2019.

Further to The Human Tissue Act of 2004the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill is legislation that focuses on the prevention of human organ trafficking within the United Kingdom by strongly creating legislation for the need for consent in terms of organ donation.

The following is a chart of some of the essentials of the three aspects of legislation by the United Kingdom parliament in order to prevent human organ trafficking:

Name of Legislation Locations within the United Kingdom legislation applies to Purpose of legislation
The Human Tissue Act of 2004 Wales, Northern Ireland, as well as England How to clean a dead body, handle human tissue of a corpse, as well as the proper and legal means of disposal of a corpse, as well as the human tissue that is involved with the dead body of humans.
The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013 Wales The express wishes of anyone who opt-outs of donating their organs, as long as they are of sound mind and body and can legally make decisions for themselves, their wishes and their choices must be honoured. The Human Tissue Act of 2004.
Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill United Kingdom Prevention of human organ trafficking.  

Human Organ Trafficking in India

                The United Kingdom is making strong efforts to crack down on human organ trafficking, in particular since these regions of the world are huge international perpetrators of human organ trafficking. The United Kingdom is one of the top human organ trafficking violators in the entire world.

            Places such as Philippines which was mentioned in the introduction, as well as India which will be discussed now, are huge targets as places where victims that are suspecting, as well as healthy, are killed by head hunters in order to use their human organs to save the lives of people in such places as the United Kingdom.

            Healthy Indian people, that are also poor, are stalked by head hunters as soon as they receive their texts from healthcare white-collar criminal professionals in the United Kingdom and the moment the head hunter that simply lives in places such as India for the sole purposes of killing Indians for their human organs and receiving large sums of hundreds of thousands of dollars in order to do this illegal work, also work with the illegal transporters of small planes that send the chopped up body parts that are required, the organs, to the United Kingdom, and the operations are done by healthcare professionals in order to save the lives of people in the United Kingdom.

Human Organ Trafficking in Pakistan

                The same situation that takes place in India also occurs in Pakistan. There have been millions of “unsolved murders” of Pakistanis that are created and are caused by these head hunters that kill Pakistani people just for their human organs in order to save the lives of people in the United Kingdom, leaving the police force in Pakistan at all levels of government, from the provinces, to the federal level, to the local levels searching to find out who have killed their people, yet, many of the police officials in Pakistan, do know that there are hidden head hunters that are the murderers of their people for the crime of human organ trafficking.

Human Organ Trafficking in Spain

            Unfortunately, the same human organ trafficking also occurs in Spain.

            In places such as Spain, many times the head hunters, the murderers, the killers, will be Spanish people themselves, who will lure a young girl, sometimes they are even as young as thirteen years old, fourteen years old, fifteen years old, who are in admiration of a truly older man who happens to look much younger for his age and lies to the little girl and tells her that he is under the age of eighteen years old.

            The young man, who is actually under the age of thirty years old and wants to have lots of money, be a millionaire in Europe and does not care how he receives the money to do this, rapes and kills the little girl, many little girls actually, the young man is actually a serial killer, and then chops up the body parts, and sends them to the United Kingdom.

Human Organ Trafficking in Iran

                In Iran, also known as Persia, the same human organ trafficking also takes place. The differences from the human organ trafficking in places such as Iran, in comparison to other places such as the Philippines, India, Pakistan, and Spain which have been previously mentioned, is because of the Islamic culture in Iran, the primary target for the head hunters who kill Persians for the sake of their human organs, are the men due to the cultural sacredness of the female body in Islamic culture.

            There are many occurrences within Iran, where the killers of the Persian men, are gay men, and they will also rape the victims, and chop up their body parts for the sake of human organ trafficking, and wrap, seal, and send the body parts to the United Kingdom, as they the

Global Human Organ Trafficking

            On the global human organ trafficking scale, countries within Africa, China, Singapore, Thailand, Russia, Serbia, Croatia, Turkey, and a number of other countries have lost millions of people over the past decade, including those countries previously mentioned such as the Philippines, India, Pakistan, Spain, and Iran, to head hunters that will many times rape and kill, steal the belongings of people that did not have anything to begin with in terms of monetary gain, chop up their body parts on the dead corpse that they created, and package the human organs to send them to the United Kingdom in order to save the lives of people in life-and-death situations who are living in the United Kingdom who need human organs that they cannot receive by legal methods.

The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill, the latter which is in its third reading, is vital legislation to apply legal the laws that are created within the United Kingdom such as The Human Tissue Act 2004, The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013, and the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) punishment to the participants of the human organ trafficking trade that occurs globally and also affects the United Kingdom as illegal human organs are created by murder, plus transported into the United Kingdom also by illegal means.

Transplant Tourism and Human Organ Trafficking

                Transplant tourism and human organ trafficking occurs when people from the United Kingdom, which is the focus of this paper, however, places such as the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and other First World countries with wealth around the world, go to places such as Serbia, Croatia, Russia, China, countries in Africa, Spain, South America, Pakistan, India, Iran, as well as the Philippines, and many other so-called Third World countries in order to target poor people, people without money, to have head hunters murder them for their human organs and to conduct their secret surgeries within the Third World countries, with First World doctors who are focused on this transplant tourism and human organ trafficking market, so that the First World people, people from the United Kingdom as the example for this purposes of this paper, can cure diseases, as well as save their lives essentially.

Criminal Element of Human Organ Trafficking

                The criminal element of human organ trafficking is catastrophic. Not only is human organ trafficking an international human rights violations issue on a large scale, a violation of the rights of poor people to live free from murder and their bodies not be deemed as available human organs for the rich of the First World, within the United Kingdom the laws in which are violated are The Human Tissue Act 2004 (c 30), The Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013, and The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill, which are the laws that are specifically applicable to human organ trafficking within the United Kingdom.

How to Solve the Situation of Human Organ Trafficking

            Unfortunately, the developments in medical care in order to prolong the lives of human beings, of course, is a remarkable thing, however, when it pertains to the issue of human organ trafficking, it is a disastrous violation of United Kingdom legislation.

            The solution truly is to create an international law enforcement body that not only focuses on human organ trafficking, but also on human trafficking in general because even those people, including men in the world, that are bought and sold into sexual slavery are also often killed once their uses for the purposes of illegal and impermissible sexual relations with the purchasers of human bodies for these purposes are killed for the uses of their human organs once their bodies can no longer be used for sex slavery purposes. Human trafficking, in general, is linked to human organ trafficking and there needs to be a dedicated international police force that is committed to eradicating this grievous crime which is clear violations of the laws set out by the United Kingdom in order to prevent human organ trafficking.

There also need to be harsher punishments for those head hunters and pilots of the planes, plus medical white-collar crime professionals that participate in transplant tourism, as well as human organ trafficking.

Conclusion

            The family of the dead Filipino girl that died in 2009 so that a baby could live that was born without a heart in the United Kingdom has not ever recovered from what to them, is the mysterious murder of their daughter, their sister, their cousin, their niece, their grandchild, their family, their classmate.

            The little Filipino girl was a great student in school and wanted to grow up to become a medical doctor. Little did she know, it was in the name of medicine, that she was murdered?

            The little Filipino girl died more because she was innocent, in a dangerous place at a dangerous time, poor and could not defend herself, and did not know the ways of wicked people of the world that would kill her for doing no wrong, other than having a healthy body where her organs could help to prolong the life of someone within the United Kingdom.

            Include hundreds of other countries in the world, that are considered to be the Third World, and again, the same thing that happened to this little Filipino girl, would happen not only to little girls, but also to young men, and to anyone that is deemed healthy enough to be killed by head hunters in order to illegally transport their human organs to First World countries such as the United Kingdom.

As workshop leader who will discuss potential image and beauty directions that each participant could take in terms of improving their overall appearance, that could even help to lift a depressed mood and/or state of mind. This workshop is also for both men and women, and those people who do not identify as either. With the workshop leader's knowledge of the Canadian fashion industry, particularly in Toronto, suggestions will be made to Canadian-owned places that will help to improve them from head to toe. This will include suggestions based on natural and other creative methods to improve their hair, their skin, their nails, their clothing, and their footwear, and even overall relaxed state of mind with suggestions of registered massage therapists and even having fun with false eyelashes. This video summarizes my overall philosophy remixed by Sybil called "Don't Make Me Over" originally done by Dionne Warwick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2tat7L9-7E The aim of the workshop is to focus on the ambitions of people like Tina Turner in the "Simply the Best" song to sing to yourself each and every day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC5E8ie2pdM The workshop is also open to those people who are interested in entering the fields of beauty, modelling, and/or acting, with the potential for networking opportunities to abound. I look forward to seeing you soon!
