India's booming solar program has just been thwarted by an antiquated trade rule in favour of protecting US big business.
Coal-fired pollution kills as many as 115,000 people in India every year. Their solar program would have saved lives; provided cheap, clean energy for millions; and jobs for thousands of people in need of work.
But now, the entire project is up in the air. The WTO's reason? India's solar boom would "discriminate against U.S. solar exports".
It's a disgusting pandering to big business, and a warning of what's to come under the toxic TPP.
I advocate nakedness around your children, homes and husbands. I don't want my boys expectations of women to resemble those that they see in magazines or TV nor do I want my girls expectations of themselves to. I believe that with the help of Queens loving themselves the next generations definition of beauty will be radically different and no longer will we idolise the unrealistic airbrushed idea of perfection that causes so much self doubt and depression. If you have stretch marks, a hairy minge, saggy boobs, a flat bum, smile lines, a wobbly belly, cellulite, a tiny chest, or any other REAL women women traits, the world needs to be flooded with your image. THE WORLD IS DESPERATE FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL IMAGE.

Medicare isn’t the Liberals’ to sell – it’s for the benefit of you, your family and for all Australians. Together we helped stop the GP tax, but now we need to stand up again. Can you SHARE this graphic and make it clear to the Liberals that Australians don’t want Medicare privatised?
"My boyfriend and I were starving and the Whataburger down the street was calling our name so we went (we were going to go through drive-thru but that line was way too long so I decided to go inside instead)
I went inside and realized the inside line was a bit long too but I was too hungry to go anywhere else, so I waited. (the time is almost 1am because I work nights)
I realize the line isn't really moving so I start paying attention as to why, because there were several people working in the back. That's when I notice the cashier talking to a young couple in front of me. The girl ordered her food and the cashier just looked at her, smiled, and very faintly said 'I am deaf, can you please talk slower.' The girl lit up and said 'oh, of course!' and I heard her slow down her order for him. He still wasn't able to catch on so he smiled again, and got a piece of paper and a pen for them to write down their order. They did so without hesitation. Without a sign of impatience, just pure joy and genuine kindness to be helping that young working man do his job.
I watched even after I placed my own order to see how everyone would react to him, to see if anyone would lose their temper with him taking extra long or get impatient because they were having to be hungry even longer, and I was surprised because not one person acted rude or impatient. Every customer complied with him and wrote down their orders without any complaints, just smiling back at him.
I'm sharing this for two reasons. One, because he is a deaf person and has a job. He is disabled and is able to work at a place that forces him to strengthen his disability by communicating with people daily. He is a special person that was given a fair chance at a job and does so willingly and with a smile on his face. THAT is utterly impressive and remarkable. Kudos to Whataburger alone for allowing this young man to work
And second, with how twisted the world is becoming and after seeing so many people bully others on a daily basis, I can't tell you how refreshing it was to see these small acts of kindness demonstrated from so many different people. Seeing people forget their pride or their problems or even their hunger is something you don't see often. But at the end of the day, it's about others, not ourselves.
This was eye-opening for me and I will never forget that moment."
