Synopsis from Amazon.com

On a quest for what matters most, Timothy Shriver discovers a radically different, inspiring way of life.

At a time when we are all more rudderless than ever, we look for the very best teachers and mentors to guide us. In Fully Alive, an unusual and gripping memoir,Timothy Shriver shows how his teachers have been the world’s most forgotten minority: people with intellectual disabilities. In these pages we meet the individuals who helped him come of age and find a deeper and more meaningful way to see the world.

Shriver’s journey begins close to home, where the quiet legacy of his aunt Rosemary, a Kennedy whose intellectual disability kept her far from the limelight, inspired his family to devote their careers to helping the most vulnerable. He plays alongside the children of Camp Shriver, his mother’s revolutionary project, which provided a space for children with intellectual disabilities to play, and years later he gains invaluable wisdom from the incredible athletes he befriends as chairman of the organization it inspired, Special Olympics. Through these experiences and encounters with scholars, spiritual masters, and political icons such as Nelson Mandela, Shriver learns how to find humility and speak openly of vulnerability and faith.

Fully Alive is both a moving personal journey and a meditation on some of the greatest wisdom and the greatest contradictions of our society. Is disability to be feared or welcomed, pitied or purged? Shriver argues that we all have different abilities and challenges we should embrace. Here we see how those who appear powerless have turned this seeming shortcoming into a power of their own, and we learn that we are all totally vulnerable and valuable at the same time.

Leave a comment

Hello Everyone:
– 
– 

Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS on Wednesday night and urged acceptance for others who are transgender.

Jenner received a standing ovation from some of the sporting world’s biggest stars after her 10-minute speech during the annual awards show honoring the year’s top athletes and moments.

“This transition has been harder on me than anything I can imagine,” said Jenner, who revealed in an April televised interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC that she was in the process of transitioning to a woman.  From the stage Wednesday, Jenner thanked Sawyer, whom she called a friend.

– 

The first 15 minutes of the video below shows the background of Caitlyn’s life as Bruce Jenner the celebrated athlete and agonizing life away from the spotlight until Bruce’s decision to go forward and become Caitlyn,  Caitlyn Jenner, who is 65 states in her speech that until earlier this year, she had never met another transgender person.

ESPY Awards_July 15, 2015
Janet Mock, writer, author, transgender rights activist was mentioned last night who attended the ESPY Awards with her boyfriend to support Caitlyn Jenner.  Below, is Janet’s New York Times bestseller book.  A couple of  months ago, Janet gave an in-depth, powerful and educational interview with Oprah Winfrey on Super Soul Sunday.
– 
Book synopsis on Amazon.com
In her profound and courageous New York Times bestseller, Janet Mock establishes herself as a resounding and inspirational voice for the transgender community—and anyone fighting to define themselves on their own terms.
With unflinching honesty and moving prose, Janet Mock relays her experiences of growing up young, multiracial, poor, and trans in America, offering readers accessible language while imparting vital insight about the unique challenges and vulnerabilities of a marginalized and misunderstood population. Though undoubtedly an account of one woman’s quest for self at all costs, Redefining Realness is a powerful vision of possibility and self-realization, pushing us all toward greater acceptance of one another—and of ourselves—showing as never before how to be unapologetic and real.

The world accordingly to Donald Trump

Leave a comment

Bonjour!
– 
– 
I think you will enjoy viewing the map of Donald Trump’s world. Click on the link below for an enlarged version.
– 
Below the map are three articles that put Trump’s remarks into perspective and/or refute his claims which pander to the fringe right and are designed to scare and fill with doubt the minds of those who have not done any fact checking on Trump’s claims..  
– 
Note: Back in 1987 I was a fan of Donald Trump after reading his book The Art of a Deal.  Back then Donald Trump was to be admired and had character and values.
– 
His first wife Ivana Trump filed for divorce after confronting an affair he was having and sought a greater amount of the family fortune than had been set out in their prenuptial agreement.
– 
Ivana had taken on a major role in the Trump Organization becoming president in those years prior to divorce.  Donald praised Ivana her leadership and not taking a salary for the management of his hotels and casinos in Art of a Deal).  
– 
However, Donald fought back in court, protesting Ivana’s claims that she had contributed to the Trump Organization  What gall after it was documented already in his book.
– 
During his relentless mindless bigoted “Birther” rants about President Obama; I definitely have no respect for him. He borders on being a lunatic clown.

Breaking news as I write this post
Conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch called out Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Twitter Sunday, saying the real estate mogul is wrong to say Mexican immigrants – or any immigrants – commit more crime than legal residents.

Economic Background

Paul Krugman

Macroeconomics, trade, health care, social policy and politics.

Paul Krugman joined The New York Times in 1999 as an Op-Ed columnist and continues as a professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University. Mr. Krugman received his B.A. from Yale University in 1974 and his Ph.D. from M.I.T. in 1977. He has taught at Yale, M.I.T. and Stanford. At M.I.T. he became the Ford International Professor of Economics.

Mr. Krugman is the author or editor of 27 books and more than 200 papers in professional journals and edited volumes. His professional reputation rests largely on work in international trade and finance; he is one of the founders of the “new trade theory,” a major rethinking of the theory of international trade. In recognition of that work, in 1991 the American Economic Association awarded him its John Bates Clark medal. Mr. Krugman’s current academic research is focused on economic and currency crises.

At the same time, Mr. Krugman has written extensively for a broader public audience. Some of his articles on economic issues, originally published in Foreign Affairs, Harvard Business Review, Scientific American and other journals, are reprinted in Pop Internationalism and The Accidental Theorist.

In 2008, Mr. Krugman received the Nobel Prize in Economics.

Enjoy your Monday!
