6 November- the birthday of the energetic over-achiever

Vibrant and stimulating, people born on November 6 have boundless energy and the ability to create an enthusiastic environment wherever they go, stimulating and motivating others with their infectious, limitless and honest enthusiasm.

Driven and ambitious, with a can-do attitude, these people typically refuse to be sidetracked or blocked from the goals that excite them by limitations or obstacles. Although this gives them incredible potential for success there is a danger, however, that they can get ahead of themselves with their enthusiasm and become too confident of success without the necessary plans or back-up. Sometimes their aim can appear so far reaching that others brand them as unfeasible; although they will often shake off criticism with humor, a part of them feels deeply hurt that others don’t believe in them enough.

Surrounding themselves with people who are as optimistic and upbeat as themselves will lift their spirits, but it is also important for them to make sure that they inject a heavy dose of realism into their lives. A realistic outlook is not a negative one but one that takes into account both the upsides and the downsides of a situation.

After the age of sixteen, people born on this day start to develop their characteristic enthusiasm, energy and drive, and they are likely to be positive and expansive in their outlook. This may lead them to further education or travel, or stimulate them to be adventurous and take chances. This influence continues until the age of forty-six, when they become realistic, practical and organized in their approach to life, with a strong need for order in their lives. Given the fact that realism is an important ingredient for their psychological growth, these are the years when they will finally be able to come to terms with the fact that there will always be positive and negative outcomes to consider. This rational outlook will empower them on their dedicated quest to enlighten others and realize their innovative visions.

Your greatest challenge is… handling disappointment

The way forward is… to understand that unless you know what it feels like to lose or miss out, you will not be able to fully appreciate what it feels like to succeed.

On the dark side: over-confident, driven, despondent

At your best: Optimistic, energetic uplifting

Love matches: Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces

Born between November 1 and November 10- People born in the first couple of weeks of November are not afraid of obstacles or challenges in any way. In fact, they positively thrive on them and love nothing better than trying to prove that no one can stop them-and as a result, more often than not, no one can.

November 6, 1962: United Nations Condemns Apartheid

On this day in 1962, the United Nations adopted Resolution 1761 that condemned the racist policies of the apartheid system in South Africa and encouraged member nations to cease relations with this country. This also established the Special Committee against Apartheid to promote an international campaign.

In effect from 1948 – 1993, apartheid was the Nationalist Party’s government sanctioned racial segregation against nonwhites, who constitute the majority of the country’s population, in South Africa. Noted for his activism against apartheid, Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s first black and first democratically elected president in 1994, signaling a new era in government affairs.

In 1987, more than 400 protesters marched at University of California, Berkeley, to call for the creation of a graduate program in African American Studies. November 6, 1987.

African American students at University of California, Berkeley, demand a graduate-level program in the Afro-American/Ethnic Studies department. Despite a concurrent weakening of institutional support for affirmative action in higher education, UC Berkeley students pressed forward on a multicultural agenda. In 1986, a student-led movement successfully convinced the Regents of the University of California to fight apartheid by divesting three billion dollars in their endowment and retirement stock portfolio of companies doing business with South Africa. A Ph.D. program in African Diaspora Studies was approved for African American Studies until 1996.

a day, a serial killer + november, 6


Marc Dutroux (born 6 November 1956 in Brussels) is a Belgian serial killer and child molester, convicted of having kidnapped, tortured and sexually abused six girls during 1995 and 1996, ranging in age from 8 to 19, four of whom he murdered. He was also convicted of having killed a suspected former accomplice, Bernard Weinstein, later proved insane.

He was arrested in 1996 and has been in prison since then. His widely publicised trial took place in 2004. A number of shortcomings in the Dutroux investigation caused widespread discontent in Belgium with the country’s criminal justice system, and the ensuing scandal was one of the reasons for the reorganisation of Belgium’s law enforcement agencies.
