Watch Out Who You Buy From on Amazon – Photo Courtesy of Google Images

In Writing (all kinds) on November 17, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Image result for incense sticks

So, I have something to celebrate in 2018. I was thinking, I should get myself something nice as a present, also for Christmas. I think to myself, what would be inexpensive and also something that I could use. Ahh…yes, incense sticks…think wrong!

I go to Amazon. The problem is not with Amazon, but with this particular new seller on Amazon called Amolénte. This was last night that I put in the order and when I woke up, I realized, what am I doing spending more than $100.00 CAD on incense sticks? I canceled the order. Amazon sends me a notice that my order has been canceled, and my credit card was not charged. I do not have a credit card and the money was taken out of my account.

I contacted the seller too and he said it would take a few days to get my money back. I contacted Amazon again and they gave me a link to how to deal with it. I left the seller Amolélente a bad review. I rarely do this on Amazon, probably only my second time doing so.

Then the seller, Amolénte emails me with this blatant lie that I can’t get my money back until I remove my negative review! Lie! I tell the guy that if I do not get my money back tonight (last night), I will blast him right here on Donna Magazine.

So, please excuse my rant, but be careful who you buy from on Amazon. This is the moral of this ranting tale.

HISTORIC BLACK EDUCATIONAL ADVOCACY GROUP LAUNCHES GROUNDBREAKING CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
Washington, D.C. – The National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) is kicking off a Capital Campaign to retire its mortgage and to renovate its existing building at 310 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, Washington, D.C. The $1.5 million effort will seek contributions from non-profit foundations, businesses and corporations, affiliates, past presidents and life members.
With the facility paid off NABSE can better offer viable, robust programming, and greater opportunities to serve the educational needs of African American students, teachers and parents. The historical culture of the organization’s volunteerism, care, giving, and doing can be traced to a deep sense of advocacy for social justice in Black communities.
“The Capital Campaign will allow us to foster and expand the spirit of our work by assuring that we maintain a National headquarters where we can continue to create, advocate, and educate. Retiring our mortgage will allow us to concentrate on serious programmatic efforts to shape the educational policy for children of color in the United States to succeed.” said President Marietta English.
The National Alliance of Black School Educators is the nation’s premier non-profit organization devoted to furthering the academic success for the nation’s children- particularly children of African descent. NABSE boasts an outreach to more than 10,000 preeminent educators including teachers, administrators, superintendents as well as corporate and institutional members. Founded in 1970, NABSE is dedicated to improving both the educational experiences and accomplishments of African-American youth through the development and use of instructional and motivational methods that increase levels of inspiration, attendance and overall achievement. Visit http://nabse.org/ for more details.

MANISH’S ZODIAC PREDICTIONS ( 13th Nov – 19th Nov )

In Writing (all kinds) on November 13, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April )You will be quite intent on making a name for yourself within a group situation. You’ll do a fine job of it, and you’ll be remembered for some time to come for your efforts. The week is a great time for education, and for using your communication skills to get ahead. You’ll be focused on joint financial situations and intimate relationships, all of which will work out quite well in this week. Romantically anything can happen if you are looking for soul-mate. You might even run into an old flame. Favorable Date: Nov 16 Favorable Colors: Yellow & Blue

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May )- This period heralds new colleagues, teammates, and customers. Your eagerness to please will be mirrored by their enthusiasm for your profession so you can expect smooth sailing during this week.  Your home life should be especially well integrated with your professional life. You’ll be able to resume your favourite activities – leisure, pleasure, and fun. The week will be a good time for you to fall back on your natural diplomacy to bring about peaceful agreements and come out on top. You may also make a decision relative to a relationship, but it will be hard to keep your relationships consistent this week. Favorable Date: Nov 14  Favorable Colors: Red & Blue

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June ) – This is your time to make yourself known at work and in the world, but make sure you take care of home and partner/mate responsibilities first, or they will hold you back. This week is wonderful for your creativity, and you find yourself doing a lot of behind the scenes work. Money tends to fluctuate, so follow a budget. Along with a financial side of things, some of you may become increasingly interested in the study of occult matters, psychology or the greater mysteries of life and death. Issues around personal intimacy may be something you will have to deal with or consider. Favorable Date: Nov 17 Favorable Colors: Green & Yellow

Cancer ( 21 June – 22 July ) – You shall have a very active life with home, family, and career all demanding your time and attention. Put your energy into your favourite pastime, because you will certainly have lots of energy. You may be very involved with communications at work. Altruistic ideas can work for you this week. Keep your plans to yourself until you are ready to launch them. You’re definitely making a name for yourself, probably far beyond the walls of the workplace. You may be at odds with someone important to you or find that an important connection is disrupted or changed unexpectedly.  Favorable Date: Nov 13 Favorable Colors: Green & Red

Leo  ( 23 July – 22 August ) – There will be potent connections and severance. Important communications will change the context or the content of your thinking. You may have dealings with powerful or influential people. This will also be the arena for a new romantic involvement. There may be a separation or an end with a cycle of family involvement. Such an ending will bring a new beginning for this is a transformational cycle that you are involved in. You may still be searching rather than secure as the week gets underway. Develop friendships or associations that help to carry through your plans Favorable Date: Nov 16 Favorable Colors: White & Red

Virgo ( 23 August – 22 September ) – This week encourages study, overseas travel and a broader more philosophical view, urging you toward new horizons, literal and metaphorical. Some will cross the frontiers of the mind by study, expanding knowledge and skills. This may be to prepare for a career change or simply out of general interest. In matters romantic, it will give things an erotic flavour. For those in a partnership, you may feel charged, wanting to explore a different side of yourself and your relationship with passionate intensity. Encourage your lover to unleash the ‘beast’ in you. Favorable Date: Nov 15  Favorable Colors: Green & Red

Libra ( 23 September – 22 October ) – Money matters are a prime concern for you this week. There can be a great benefit in new financial opportunities that come your way. This is a good time for lots of travel and also for putting time into either working at home or home projects. You are focused on a relationship and a soul mate or dream. You can make it happen if you think it through. Things can move very smoothly around you if you follow your intuition. Friendships are changing and new friends can bring new opportunities for travel and social experiences. Favorable Date: Nov 19 Favorable Colors: White & Yellow

Scorpio ( 23 October – 21 November ) – You will have increased workload or a new line of work. This may see you operating in a more solitary capacity than usual. Some of you may undertake a new creative project while others will go into business. Either way, time and effort in quantity will be required for what you’re doing. It will be important to balance the demands of work with changed healthcare requirements. This week brings new suitors for singles and a possible change in status for those already attached. It is an excellent time for communicating your dreamy feelings and abundance of sentiment. Favorable Date: Nov 15  Favorable Colors: White & Green

Sagittarius ( 22 November -21 December ) – There may be developing associations or companionship with people of status, those of other cultures and those of academic standing. There can be a better ‘all-around’ sense of the world you live in as a result of this transit. This week creates an intense desire to understand things at a deeper level. You may travel to find powerful or life-changing experiences. You may need to review your status or make important career decisions. Contemplation and frank discussion are the ways forward. Favorable Date: Nov 13 Favorable Colors: Red & Yellow

Capricorn ( 22 December – 19 January ) – This period marks a turning point for you to embrace your creative or spiritual gifts by learning new skills and practices that put such gifts to work. You shall gain ground this week in your career. Work will be intense, but take care of yourself physically, because the taxing pace you set can make you sick. Home will be a great place to escape to. This is a good time to communicate your goals and aspirations as well. Don’t let finances slide. There may be verbal confrontations and power plays to contend with. Favorable Date: Nov 16  Favorable Colors: Blue & Yellow

Aquarius ( 20 January – 18 February ) – This is a wonderful period to learn something new. You should keep an eye on your pocketbook though, because expenses at home may be more than you expect. A loan or help from an outside source is a possibility. Later in the week, you shall find yourself coping with family issues and feeling very tied down. It is a good time to cement a partnership or friendship. Your relationship with a partner is likely to be stable, but maybe a drag, so plan some upscale entertainment. Favorable Date: Nov 15 Favorable Colors: Red & Yellow

Pisces ( 19 February – 20 March ) – This could be a tricky period with regard to communications and business dealings as well as travel and mobility. Transport or vehicles could be problematic. You may have contact with difficult or hostile people, especially males. Negotiate such situations carefully or avoid them altogether if you can. The roots of any clashes will be of conflicting value systems or simply an obstructive nature. For some, work routines will need to be structured while for others there will be a higher organizational content in what you do. Take charge of what goes on. Favorable Date: Nov 18  Favorable Colors: Purple & Yellow

Cutco Cutlery & Knives are the Best! – Not a Paid Advertisement

In Writing (all kinds) on November 8, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Holiday Savings - Up to <></> OFF Table & Steak Knife Sets

When I was about 17 years old, this young Chinese man and I sold Cutco cutlery and knives together. The Chinese man was a way better salesperson than I was an old sold me by far, however, I did get a few sales. This was decades ago and I bought Cutco’s sandwich knife, pear knife, big butcher knife, and scissors. The knives are so sharp that they scare me and I hide them. I rarely use them actually. This is probably another reason why after all of these years I have not needed to sharpen those knives even once (bought them in 1989), and they still cut perfectly! Mine have dark brown handles and the handles still look great too!

If you are an older person that knows that your dexterity is not as it used to be when you were younger, I would recommend only using the Cutco scissors in the kitchen. I use the Cutco scissors instead of the knives. This does help. Particularly, if you have diabetes, I do not, however, for those people who do, it is important that you avoid any cuts and/or bruises.

Cutco is a superb product! No wonder it scores 4.6 on Google reviews and this company did not appear yesterday!

The marketing for Cutco is done through Vector Marketing.

MANISH’S ZODIAC SIGNS PREDICTIONS ( 6TH NOV – 12TH NOV )

In Writing (all kinds) on November 6, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April ) – This week presents you with the opportunity to see life through clear lenses rather than the clouds. This is a great time to sort through those piles that seem so easy to accumulate. There is a lot of energy directed at you, and how you choose to utilize this energy, will play a part in your life for a considerable amount of time. Your love life will be in for a shock as one close to your heart will reveal a message that will change the nature of your relationship.  Remain calm and use understanding and patience to guide you.  Favorable Date: Nov 12 Favorable Color: White

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – There will be a lot of behind the scenes details that need attention for the week to come. Be careful not to confine yourself whereby you become reclusive. Meditation is important in efforts to decompress from your workload. New friendships and associations are magnified if you open up. Business income increases after 13th. Some colleagues may become friends and want to spend time with you outside of the workplace. Give time to your spirituality and overall life philosophy. Favorable Date: Nov 6 Favorable Color: Red

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June)  – Productivity serves you well now. You’re likely being pulled away from your work by the lure of fun. But it’s time to pay attention to getting the job done. You’ll have some decisions to make regarding what you do to earn money. Trust your intuition when it comes to unspoken messages.  Actions speak louder than words, and if and when you sense a potential for chaos, go with your gut and establish a tone of peace. Slow and steady wins the race this week. Favorable Date: Nov 12 Favorable Color: Yellow Read the rest of this entry »

[TPS] – “STEP UP and BE SAFE” pedestrian campaign, Monday, November 6, 2017 through Sunday, November 12, 2017

News Release

“STEP UP and BE SAFE” pedestrian campaign, Monday, November 6, 2017, through Sunday, November 12, 2017

Sunday, November 5, 2017 – 5:14 PM
Traffic Services
416-808-1900

Improving road safety and traffic flow for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists is one of our goals in support of the Service priority and commitment to safe communities and neighbourhoods. This initiative is part of the City of Toronto – Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. Vision Zero is a comprehensive five-year (2017-2021) action plan focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries on Toronto’s streets. The plan prioritizes the safety of our most vulnerable road-users through a range of initiatives.

The “STEP UP and BE SAFE” pedestrian campaign will begin on Monday, November 6, 2017, and conclude on Sunday, November 12, 2017. November, the month that daylight savings time is introduced, has traditionally been the month when pedestrians are involved in the most collisions. The Toronto Police Service will continue to be diligent and promote education initiatives and associated enforcement strategies to enhance pedestrian safety within our communities.

Collision analysis has shown that pedestrian fatalities represent approximately 60% of yearly traffic fatalities in Toronto. A total of 28 pedestrians have lost their lives this year. This represents over 57% of the total of all traffic fatalities in Toronto so far this year. Seniors, in particular, are among the most vulnerable sector of road-users. To date, there have been 13 senior pedestrian fatalities representing 46% of pedestrian fatalities in 2017.

All police officers and Parking Enforcement Officers will be paying particular attention to those motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians who commit offences in the vicinity of pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, intersections, school zones (particularly primary schools) and crossing areas frequented by seniors. Pedestrians are encouraged to avoid using distracting electronic devices when about to interact with vehicular traffic.

Goji Juice And Chemotherapy Posted By : D Fraser

In Writing (all kinds) on October 31, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Most times when your family doctor prescribes a new medication for you, you can get ready to read the long list of side effects the drug may cause to alleviate the symptoms of something else. Common side effects that you’ll read about, or even see in TV commercials these days for new drugs are cramps, nausea, and diarrhea. It’s rare that we come across a form of prescribed medication that doesn’t have some negative side effects.

Goji Juice is one way to maintain optimal health without negative side effects.

Bum Joon Kim, 39, faces 21 charges in ongoing online apartment rental investigation, Man’s photograph released

Monday, October 30, 2017 – 4:00 PM
52 Division
416-808-5200

The Toronto Police Service would like to make the public aware of an arrest in an ongoing online apartment rental investigation.

It is alleged that:

– from July to October 2017, a man posted apartment rental advertisements on the internet

– he then met with “prospective tenants” who responded to the advertisements and showed them various apartment units apparently for rent

– the “prospective tenants” then turned over cash deposits to the man in the belief that the units were theirs to rent

– they later discovered that the units were not available to be rented

On Monday, October 30, 2017, Bum Joon Kim, 39, of no fixed address, was arrested.

He has been charged with:

1) three counts of fraud over $5000
2) 18 counts of fraud under $5000

He is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Tuesday, October 31, 2017, 10 a.m., courtroom 101.

His photograph is attached.

Anyone who believes they may have been a victim is asked to contact Detective Constable John Maciek, 52 Division Frauds, at 416-808-5272, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637).

MANISH’S ZODIAC SIGNS PREDICTIONS ( 30th Oct – 5th Nov )

In Writing (all kinds) on October 30, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April ) – It may be a time for you to remain introvert and seek solitude from everyone else. You may decide to get away from it all by going on a retreat or vacation on your own. It’s a time of healing and new beginnings. It’s also a time for you to figure out what it is you want for yourself. You will plan more for the future and focus on your own personal wants and needs. You may also focus on the needs of a child, spouse, lover or partner.It’s time to discard or get rid of unhealthy habits and people from your life. Favorable Date: Nov 5 Favorable Color: Green

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – Financial and material benefits and opportunities may present themselves on November 6 & 7. It could be a bonus, commission, gift card, reward, credit card, loan, child support, alimony or other financial or material gain. You need to be careful on November 8th as there could be some type of disagreement or argument with a partner. The partner may be a spouse, lover, friend, business partner or anyone you work closely with personally or professionally. It could bring the ending of a relationship too. Favorable Date: Nov 2 Favorable Color: Yellow

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June)  – This period will bring you good luck in love and a lot of erotic enthusiasm. You’ll have a good period, in which you’ll conquer without effort, and the chances to find love will stay very high. Venus, the house of love, will also enhance your emotional side and will create a slightly idealistic sentimental mood, prone to poetry and dreaming.Try stepping out of your comfort zone to get a romantic result. You may not be able to stay out of the spotlight, so be smart about having fun and plan ahead. Favorable Date : Nov 3 FavorableColor : Purple Read the rest of this entry »

Himalayan Tibetan Goji Juice, The Best Kept Anti-aging Secret Of Our Time Posted By on the Internet: Willie Jones

In Writing (all kinds) on October 30, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Tibetan Goji Juice is finally gaining in popularity and it is about time. Thanks to the clinical trials being done in China, Japan, Mongolia, and Switzerland, we are getting the much-needed information (that the ancients knew) on this wonderful berry. The most famous story in regards to Goji Juice (also known as Lycium Barbarum) and its benefits come from China where according to their records, Li Chung Yun, a renowned Chinese scholar, and herbalist, was born in 1677.

What comes after gratitude? A new poll on Donna Magazine

In Writing (all kinds) on October 29, 2017 at 10:39 PM

I asked this question to myself tonight. I found this article online

https://communityroundtable.com/start/comes-gratitude/

I decided I wanted to know what you think about this. I look forward to your responses.

Lifestyle characteristics that promote longevity

In Writing (all kinds) on October 29, 2017 at 3:00 AM

* Regularly partakes in enjoyable exercise

* Enjoyable career and tolerates ‘healthy’ stress

* Generally happy relationships with spouse and children

* Active member of the community, enjoying many friendships

* Seeks to learn new things and enjoys personal development

* Eats a balanced, healthy diet

* Supplements diet with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants

* Has a sense of worth and purpose in life

If your life reflects these characteristics then you have adopted the attributes which significantly slow down the aging process and increase your chances of living to a ripe old age with good health.

If this list is more like you then you may be aging fast. It’s time to take action and make some changes if you want to improve the quality of your later years. It may be a daunting task to make lifestyle changes, however, by taking things one step at a time and being consistent in developing new lifestyle habits – you will notice the difference in time, and your body, friends, and family will thank you.

What determines your biological ‘age’?

In Writing (all kinds) on October 28, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Our parents precondition us from a young age to believe that we’ll live to a certain age. We walk around with a particular notion in our subconscious that we have a predefined lifespan of between 60 to 90 years. But there is no definitive speed at which a person should gracefully age because we are all so different. Some people seem to look and act eternally young – ageless, wrinkle less. Others, less fortunate, look old beyond their years. Our body’s biological age is a reflection of our physical, mental and spiritual journey through life. In perfect conditions, our bodies can survive to an age of 125 years. Look at the two very different lists below, the potential for aging becomes quite obvious when you compare such a stark difference in lifestyle.

The first person has all the attributes to significantly slow down the aging process and live to a ripe old age with good health.

Belief #4. I cultivate a positive vocabulary

In Writing (all kinds) on October 26, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Do you ever make remarks like, “She gives me a pain in the neck.” “He broke my heart.” or “I can’t stomach it.” Your mind is very suggestible. Your mind tries to maintain consistency between your beliefs and behaviors (cognitive dissonance theory). Don’t risk your mind taking these remarks literally. If you find yourself using any negative body metaphors, get rid of them.

The second aspect of a positive vocabulary is having a favorite upbeat, fun word or words. Make it your trademark and use it with great enthusiasm. My favorite is Wow! I love that word. Motivational speaker Zig Zigler made a trademark of fa-n-tas-tic. What’s your favorite word?

Brickey was at a wedding and the bride had difficulty getting the ring on the groom’s hand. “Oh shit,” popped out of her mouth and was picked up by the microphone for everyone to hear. That’s hardly the memory she hoped people would take home. Every few years a news or sports commentator lets an expletive slip. It causes great embarrassment and sometimes costs them their jobs.
