Cryptocurrency Markets Drop $200B, Bitcoin Down 50% Since November – Slashdot

About a third of that drop happened this week, as “Bitcoin, ethereum and other major cryptocurrencies have fallen sharply,” Forbes reports, “wiping around $200 billion from the crypto market in just a matter of days (though some fear the bitcoin price could fall far further).” Bitcoin is now at its lowest prince since last July, “in the aftermath of the Federal Reserve’s biggest interest rate hike in years”.

Mommy- Mamãe

Coisas da SIL

Estando longe
Te sinto perto.
E agora te observo
Como és bela e forte.
Quero contigo aprender
A ser guerreira
A ser de fé
A ser corajosa e valente.
E se mesmo as lágrimas jorrar
Eu saiba enxugar.
Quando pensar em desistir
Eu possa persistir .
Na hora da tristeza
Eu saiba usar da esperteza
E tendo sempre uma certeza:
Tudo passa!
Amo você mainha
minha querida Dona Ana,
Ana do terço
Ana de Maria
Ana Minha
Ana Mainha.
Obrigada por me ensinar
O melhor caminho de andar..❤

My dear Mommy


being away
I feel you close.
And now I watch you
How beautiful and strong you are.
I want to learn with you
to be a warrior
to be of faith
To be brave and brave.
And if even tears flow
I know how to wipe.
When to think about giving up

Lê Vĩnh Tài | NOT A GRAVE (177)


By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translated by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm



I’m asleep in the forest

the night silently swallowed me


I didn’t try to fight it

graves, overwhelming the tired souls


as for the trees

I love them more than all things



there’s a drunk, he’s blue and a little dark,

he asked: long ago, if this was what I wanted?

the days when tiredness did never touch me


I would lie down

dug a hole in my bed

then waited for the tree roots to fill it up

waited for the leaves to cast shadows over my eyes


I was a growing tree

in the middle of the forest

dissolved in the embrace of my lover

and unhappiness shall never be say,



on the branches 

I’m dangling

until the poem came to

replaced me…

Russian invaders destroy 97-year-old Ukrainian WWII veteran’s home

While Russia prepares a grandiose display of military firepower in Moscow for the 77th anniversary of Victory Day, its soldiers are aiming their firepower against Ukrainian World War II veterans, Holocaust survivors and other civilians.  97-year-old Ivan Lysun from Zolochiv, in the Kharkiv oblast, has been left with his jacket and the many medals he received for courage and his military service when he fought, together with Russians, against the Nazi invaders, and very little else.

In the early hours of 4 May, Russian shelling almost totally destroyed the house which, as a small lad, Ivan Lysun tried to help his father build.  Most of it has been turned into rubble, and it is a miracle that he survived.

Lesson Day 10/67, Plus: Snow Riots, and Heroes Escaping Gatekeepers…

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

     This week we revisit an updated Lesson Plan 10 of 67 in our GED/HiSET series, and then, we see how the very first race riot in the USA took place, right in the District of Columbia, and how that relates to gatekeepers, but before that, a quick word about Isaias: 

   We have finally met the hero of Who By Fire: whobyfireiwilltmpcover   I Will, Isaias, an escaped slave, now a fugitive from the law, in 1838.  But, how did he escape?  Well, we can’t let the cat out of the bag entirely, can we?  A hint: it has to do with these riots we mentioned a second ago.

    In reflecting on my time as a tour creator in DC, and wondering how slavery still influences us, today.   I loved giving the first tour of my Underground Railroad and Black History series Singing Community Cooperation
