Plumber's Helper

   I've been a Plumber's helper for almost three months now, at Fred Smith Plumbing & Heating Company, located in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It's been one of the most invigorating, and tense learning experiences of my life. My mechanical knowledge has increased immensely, which I'm very proud of, because I've viewed myself as somebody who is naturally mechanically inclined. I've been bouncing around as a helper at the beginning, to learn from each mechanic as much as possible. The shop consists of mainly immigrant Albanians, immigrant Poles, Puerto Ricans & Dominicans, and native white New Yorkers. Lot's of "fucking fuck" goes around in the van, when 8 of us are being dropped off to work around the city. 

   I was working with Chris, a mechanic of Irish descent, on a 5 inch waste line at a building located by the Metropolitan museum. The superintendent didn't do a shutdown of the line, so every single time somebody flushed their toilet from above us, the piss and shit would fall on us. It was one of the dirtiest moments of my life, and I left that job stinking like shit on the subway train. People looked at me with respect and disgust at the same time. Why? Because somebody's got to do the job. 

Fight for Your Education

   Educations Funds are being cut, causing a regular rise in college tuition across New York (as well as the entire United States). More and more students are dropping out, with their debts going unpaid. It's time to take action.

   On February 26, 2015, I took a bus ride from the Greater New York City area, to our state's capital, Albany, with NYPIRG (New York Public Interest Research Group) for Higher Education Action Day. Hundreds of students from CUNY and SUNY schools, traveled to fight for TAP and Financial Aid reforms. Finally, I had the chance to meet my state's senators and assembly members, face to face. I was going to lobby, and represent the Borough of Manhattan Community College. 

   The bus ride lasted for about three hours. I put on my headphones, listened to Kapiwolf, and stared out the window. I felt ready. I was taking action towards what I strongly believe in. Free education across the nation. Once we got to our destination, we were warmly welcomed with speeches and free food. "Thank your politicians, for they take time out of their day to meet with you face to face, so that they can listen to your stories about your struggles as a student in New York! Thank you for coming all the way here, we are proud of you!" We disperse, and head out to our designated senators' offices.

   Education isn't a priority for the system. The people who want to help us fight for our education funds, don't have the capabilities of doing so. All the senators were prevented from meeting with us, because they all had to attend a "meeting" at the exact date and time, of our arrival. This is not what the United States should be about. Europe is making education free for its own citizens, as well as foreign. Student debt continues to rise, causing the economy and quality of our lives to be further pushed down. You need to represent what you stand for. Don't give in. Don't give up.

   FIGHT FOR YOUR EDUCATION! WHEN OPPORTUNITIES RISE TO REPRESENT SOMETHING LARGER THAN YOURSELF, DO IT.

Mars Destroyed by Nuclear Warfare

   According to theoretical plasma physicist, Dr. John E. Bradenburg, two civilizations (Cydonia and Utopia) on Mars were eradicated by an intelligent alien race that sought out to exterminate "noisy" civilizations. High concentrations of Xenon-129 in the atmosphere, uranium and thorium on the surface, as well as archaeological ruins, lead to Dr. Brandenburg's conclusion and theory of the nuclear destruction of Mars. In addition, the soil of Mars has the colouration and composition that is consistent with mixed fusion-fission explosions. 

   Dr. Brandenburg used photographs taken by the Curiosity rover to put together a scientific hypothesis that he later published in the "Journal of Cosmology." The Odyssey spacecraft sent by NASA played a role as well, detecting uranium and thorium on the surface of Mars, with two highly concentrated areas (two possible nuclear detonations). A human mission to Mars, would be essential in gaining more knowledge and insight about what happened. The physicist claims that Earth can be next, and that we must man a mission to the Red Planet in order to prepare ourselves in defending against a possible nuclear war.

   Mars is named after the Roman god of war...

U.S. Government Owns Ebola

   Many of you have heard about the Ebola virus that is circulating in Liberia, Africa. The disease leads to an almost 100% mortality rate. Symptoms appear from three days to two weeks after contracting the virus, and include: headache, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, internal bleeding, vomiting & liver failure. The majority of scientists claim that the virus can only be contracted via direct contact, such as body fluids. A few believe that it has the potential to evolve into an air-borne virus, like the Influenza (flu). 

   Liberians blame the U.S. Government for testing out this "biological weapon" on its citizens. How much truth is in that statement? 

   The U.S. Government holds a patent on the Ebola virus, and all of its strains. The publication number of the patent is: CA2741523 A1. What does this mean? It means that all research, drugs, and vaccines that pertain to any Ebola strain, belong to the U.S. Government. Pharmaceutical companies will develop medicines that will generate profit for the Government. Not only that, but the media will create an image, where we are protected and cared for. After the outbreak in Liberia, further security measures are being taken at airports, at incoming flights from West Africa. This isn't as effective as it seems, because there's a window period where the virus isn't detectable (3-14 days). It's a precautionary measure. Which of course, is a form of control. Protection equals control.

   This business venture leads to an entire monopolization of drugs & vaccines that treat the Ebola strain. The U.S. Government is generating profit, from the deaths of innocent Liberians. Open your eyes. Do your research. Put the pieces together.

People's Climate March

   The drums beat loudly, group leaders led chants, and the people walked hand in hand, side by side. I walked all around the march: mingling, giving out t-shirts, giving kisses to news reporters, walking ahead of the entire group. It was an invigorating experience...one of a kind. Everybody who participated on September 21, 2014 as part of the 400,000 crowd, was part of something greater than themselves. An idea in itself, that many of us rarely think about. 

   It was the first march that I've ever been to. As soon as I was in the middle of everything, I realized how much energy and excitement was in the air. People very rarely get together for one cause, at such a scale. I felt an urge to grab a megaphone and lead everybody with one unified chant.

ISIS and their Mission

   Who is ISIS? What have they done? What do they want to accomplish? Where do they come from? These are the questions anybody should ask, who's not informed of the Sunni jihadist organization located in Syria and Iraq. 

   ISIS stands for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, and is a self-proclaimed caliphate. A caliphate is an Islamic state that is headed by a caliph, a man who has extreme religious and political power from being chosen by Allah. The man who's in reign of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (Caliph Ibrahim), self-proclaimed himself as a caliph, and is establishing ISIS to claim religious authority over all Muslims across the world. ISIS hopes to establish a world-wide caliphate, where Muslims will create a world-wide government under the path of jihad. That path, however, is very unlikely to be accomplished. It's pursued by Islamic extremists that commit atrocities and war crimes, and the majority of the Islamic audience do not consider that vision. 

   ISIS originated in Iraq at around 2004 (before undergoing numerous name changes), shortly after the invasion led by the USA in 2003. Many of today's leaders and military strategy advisors for ISIS, gained experience in guerrilla warfare against the American military. After the American military withdrew its last troops from Iraq in 2011, ISIS took advantage of several situations. The Iraqi insurgency between the Shia-central government and Sunni-militant groups continued at a larger scale. Syria became involved in a civil war, and there was no American military presence to interfere. ISIS took control of several regions in Iraq, and began to expand in Syria, establishing its headquarters in Ar-Raqqah, Syria. They've expanded to about 100,000 fighters, and that number continues to grow, as Syrian rebels who have originally fought against ISIS, are giving in to their side. They're noticing that the Sunni-extremist group is gaining the upper hand in its conquered territories, and would be involved in an inevitable loss. 

   ISIS is a force to be reckoned with. They're militarily superior to practically every rebel group that exists in the Middle East, they operate businesses in their controlled territories to generate wealth for funding their campaigns. They're able to (and do) pay their fighters $400-500 a month, and are developing traits that are affiliated with mafia and gang operations. What can we do about it?

   You've been informed, form an opinion.
