This is a friendly but firm reminder that:

IF YOU FIND A PUP PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH! 
its mother may be nearby and might abandon the pup if it sees strangers surrounding it!

Seven Steps to Help a Stranded Marine Mammal

  1. Do not touch, pick up or feed the animal.
  2. Do not return the animal to the water.
  3. Observe the animal from a distance of at least 50 feet. 
  4. Keep people and dogs away.
  5. Note physical characteristics such as size, presence of external ears and fur color.
  6. Note the animal’s condition. Is it weak or skinny? Does it have any open wounds?
  7. Look for any obvious identification tags or markings.
  8. Determine the animal’s exact location for accurate reporting.
  9. Call The Marine Mammal Center (or your local wildlife rescue) with as much information as you have.

this is about more than race, it’ll also open doors to discrimination based on socioeconomic status.

Attention all 101,000+ of you: FEMA, Red Cross, Army Corps of Engineers, etc. are barely making a dent in the rebuilding of the Rockaway peninsula. Residents there need your help and your time.  They still have no power, heat, and in some cases no running water or functional plumbing. Occupy Sandy is doing the most on-the-ground work right now and they are in need of supplies and human power.

Please see OCCUPY SANDY: ROCKAWAYS for info on how to help and where to donate. You can also check out the main OCCUPY SANDY site for info on helping other ravaged parts of NY and NJ.

Please REBLOG. Merely “liking” this post won’t help!

The list below is only part of the directory we’ve pulled together — much, much more After Sandy info via the link. 
Where can I donate my time or money?
We’ve got a growing list of shelters, charities and volunteer organizations on our How to Help page.
How can I find someone who’s missing?
Check Red Cross’s Safe and Well Tracker, where you or your loved ones can register to say you’re safe.
When will I get my power back?
Con Edison says that as of Thursday morning, approximately 676,000 customers out of service. That included 227,000 in Manhattan, 103,000 in Queens, 59,000 in Brooklyn, 83,000 in Staten Island and 36,000 in the Bronx. In Westchester County, the company reported 166,000 customers out of service. The NY Times has a map of power outages around the five boroughs.
Jersey Central Power & Light has a list of estimated restoration times, and says the majority of customers will be restored within the next seven days.
LIPA says it’s already restored power to 110,000 customers, and is still working this week with an estimated restoration time of 7 to 10 days. Some may get their power before then, but some will also get it after that time. That’s the general window.
Where can I find gas?
According to AAA, as of 9 a.m. Thursday, these stations reported having gas available in New Jersey and Long Island. You should check with them before making the trip.
Where are the shelters near me?
This NYC evac map shows shelters around the five boroughs, Long Island and in New Jersey.
What about pet shelters?
The Humane Society has a list and hotline to identify pet-friendly shelters in New York and New Jersey. On Long Island, a pet Shelter will also open at Nassau County Mitchel Athletic Complex, Administration Building, in Uniondale.
Which roads, subways and buses are open and running?
Check frequently with our Transit Tracker for the latest updates on road and transit openings.

THE ‘OTHER SIDE’ OF SANDY NOT SEEN ON TV OR IN NEWSPAPERS. Sandy also struck CUBA, HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Images that you will not see in the newspapers or on TV. There are now many more homeless people in Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic suffering from the ravages of hurricane Sandy passing through their respective nations, prior to the hurricane also pummeling the east coast of the United States. In solidarity with all people, in light of the loss of their homes and loved ones, we must also speak out for them. Pain and suffering does not care about borders and true compassion has no flag to wave. Our hearts are with all who are impacted by this international tragedy. Please become more informed and support the efforts of groups attempting to help lives everywhere, who know no borders. Image of Orlando Barria (EFE) in the La Barquita, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, October 26, 2012 (A.E.L.L.A.)

And Jamaica. 
I have a friend in Jamaica who says it is pretty bad there too.

So I heard about this story at a Zumbathon I attended this weekend. To my understanding, a 3 year old was bit by a pit bull and needs facial reconstruction surgery. The community however isn’t doing a very good job at helping because the mother and father of the child have a lot of tattoos. All I could think when I heard this was - Tumblr wouldn’t stand for that. Here is the link to the news story and to the fundraising site, please signal boost :)

Boosting the signal.

The pain has only just begun: Members of the Sikh community and family members of victims of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin shooting attend a candlelight vigil held at the Oak Creek Community Center in Wisconsin, on August, 7, 2012. The killer was identified as white supremacist Wade Michael Page, a former U.S. army soldier who described himself as a ”frustrated neo-Nazi”. Page shot dead six people and seriously wounded three, including a police officer, at the Sikh temple on Sunday as worshippers prepared for religious services. Photos: Reuters / Getty Images

My heart.

sincerest condolences to the victims and their family and friends, no words can…

Everyone needs to read and reblog this. The police are not your friends and are seldom to never out to help you.

reblogging this again, because it’s truly important in these “turbulent times” (as jean charest would say)
