Day 27: Clear out your junk drawer

Day 27: Clear out your junk drawer #blog #blogger #blogpost #organisation #organise #messy #junkdrawer

I have a confession to make: I am one of the messiest-organised people you’ll ever meet!
So I don’t really have a junk drawer, it’s more like a junk room. This means that I should clear out more than just that one drawer, but you know I like my stuff and in all the chaos it may be I always know where things are. At least I pretend to, but it also helps that I have a small room really.

Anyways,…

BOY SCOUTS CAVING TO AGENDA OF FRINGE MINORITY, LIKELY TO ALLOW OPENLY GAY SCOUTMASTERS #o4a #BoyScouts #news

Robert Gates, president of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), said the orgnization’s “status quo” on membership, which prohibits openly homosexual adults, could not be sustained and strongly suggested that the BSA fall in line with the pro-gay “changes taking place” in America today, during a speech at the BSA National Annual Meeting on Thursday.

During his address, Gates referenced the Boy Scouts’ oath that mentions “duty to God and our country,” but he added that “our country is changing.” Gates did not mention that part of the oath where a Boy Scout pledges to keep himself “morally straight.”

“We must deal with the world as it is, not as we might wish it to be,” Gates said. “The status quo in our movement’s membership standards cannot be sustained.”

Throughout his speech, Gates sought to balance his push for a policy change with a pledge to protect the religious beliefs of the thousands of churches that financially sustain the BSA.

“Our oath calls upon us to do our duty to God and our country,” Gates said during his address. “The country is changing and we are increasingly at odds with the legal landscape at both the state and federal levels.”

“The one thing we cannot do is put our heads in the sand and pretend this challenge will go away or abate. Quite the opposite is happening,” he added.

According to the BSA’s website, more than 70 percent of all BSA charters are supported by faith-based organizations.

Gates also warned that by not amending the Boy Scouts’ policy to allow gay leaders into the organization, the BSA is inviting unwelcome court action that would force it to adopt a policy it doesn’t want.

“We cannot predict if or when this might happen to us, but I personally believe our legal defenses have weakened,” Gates said.

“If we wait for the courts to act, we could end up with a broad ruling that could forbid any kind of membership standard, including our foundational belief in our duty to God and our focus on serving the specific needs of boys,” he continued.

“Waiting for the courts to act is a gamble with huge stakes,” Gates added.

Regional BSA charters have already begun to defy the organization’s national policy against allowing homosexual troop leaders, Gates pointed out. Trying to reel these councils back in would require some charters to be expelled from the BSA entirely.

“We cannot ignore growing internal challenges to our current membership policy, from some councils – like the Greater New York Council, the Denver Area Council, and others – in open defiance of the policy, to more and more councils taking a position in their mission statements and public documents contrary to national policy.”

“While technically we have the authority to revoke their charters, such an action would deny the lifelong benefits of scouting to hundreds of thousands of boys and young men today and vastly more in the future. I will not take that path.”

Gates did not press the organization to adopt a formal policy change on Thursday, but he did urge fellow BSA members to “reflect and pray on a path forward.”

The BSA voted in 2013 to add a provision in its membership policy stating that a boy could not be denied membership based on his sexual orientation alone. The provision passed with a 61 percent majority.

The BSA’s current troop leader policy states: “While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”

According to the organization’s website, the official BSA Scout Oath states: “On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

Does this seem “morally straight”, and befitting of BSA’s time-honored moral standards?

'Best thing that could...happen to the beautiful game': World of football reacts to FIFA arrests

Wednesday was a great day for FIFA — a phenomenal day.

The football association said so itself: The dawn arrests of several senior officials for alleged racketeering, conspiracy and corruption, followed swiftly by the opening of an investigation into awarding Russia and Qatar the next two World Cups, marked a spectacular day for FIFA.

As a long overdue storm surrounded the orgnization, FIFA insisted it was “pleased to see that the investigation is being energetically pursued.” Meanwhile, spokesman Walter De Gregorio, wheeled out alone to face the world’s press, repeated that it was a “good day.” Read more…

SketchBook12

Terms:

Ontario:

Ontario is the most populous province in Canada. It consists several indian reserves.

Nishnawbe Aski Nation:

Nishnawbe Aski Nation is a political orgnization which represents the First Nation  communities (aboriginals in Canada) in Northern Ontario.

Queen Liliuokalani:

Queen Liliuokalani is the last monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaii.

Area 51:

Area 51 is an U.S. Airforce Base with unidentified purpose, which was frequently related with the conspiracy theory of UFO.

Reflection:

The story of Lilo and Stitch takes place in Hawaii. Hawaii has its own unique culture differ from the U.S. culture. In which sense can be called a Nation-state. However in here I would like to broaden the concept of a Nation-state and say that indeed the Earth is a Nation-state in the story of Lilo and Stitch. In the beginning of the movie, the Grand Councilwoman tempered to destroy the Earth to evaporate Stitch. The only reason for her not doing so is because the  scientist want to protect the mosquito population on earth. In here, the Galactic Federation is the state, who has power over the Earth, can arbitrarily define what is legal or not on the Earth. The Earth in the other hand is the nation, a place with its own culture and people, however being controlled by the state. For Lilo and Stitch, they long for a family, not a nation state. Though they live in one, but they do not want to. The state has the power to legally kill Stitch, as well as Lilo, though the councilwoman did not do that in the end.

750多名船民周五被印尼渔船救上岸。

印尼亚齐警方称,750多名缅甸罗兴亚和孟加拉难民周五(15日)在印尼亚齐海域获救。

这艘载有712名难民的船据称此前遭马来西亚海军驱逐而驶往印尼,在苏门答腊岛海岸线外开始下沉。

当地警方负责人称,印尼渔民用渔船把船上的难民送上岸。

另外47位难民也是印尼渔民从海里救上岸的;这些船民当时不堪饥饿,从难民船上跳进海里求救。

过去几天内,亚齐已经接纳了近600名缅甸和孟加拉难民。

权益组织估计目前在东南亚海上漂流的难民可能多达8000人。

更多船民

此前,一艘载有约350罗兴亚穆斯林的缅甸难民船离开泰国后前往印度尼西亚的亚齐。

这艘难民船在泰国海岸外被人蛇遗弃后漂浮了一周,泰国周四(14日)派人登船修好了渔船发动机,向船民提供食物,然后将船驶离泰国海岸。

泰国官员称船上的难民不愿进入泰国,希望前往第三国。

法新社报道说,国际移民组织(International Orgnization for Migration)官员对媒体证实船民不愿在泰国上岸。

法新社引述泰国官员说,这艘船本来要去马来西亚,但现在去不成了,所以离开泰国水域后改道去印尼。

在泰国附近水域漂浮多日的这艘罗兴亚难民船上有很多妇女儿童。过去几天里已经有大约10人因饥渴和疾病死亡。

踢皮球

印尼、马来西亚和泰国政府都拒绝接纳难民船。

联合国秘书长潘基文呼吁东南亚国家政府向求救的船民打开国门,并提醒这些国家它们有义务救助遇难船只,以及禁止驱逐潜在难民的国际规则。

人权机构呼吁白宫承担道义责任,向难民伸出援手,批评缅甸政府迫害罗兴亚穆斯林,批评印尼、马来西亚和泰国政府见死不救。

据美联社报道,美国驻这些国家的大使已经向所在国当局表示对缅甸船民问题的关注。

美国国务院发言人周四表示,缅甸政府也需要立刻设法改善罗兴亚穆斯林聚居地区的人道状况。

泰国宣布5月29日召集地区间会议商讨如何应对缅甸和孟加拉难民危机。缅甸已经宣布很可能不出席会议。

缅甸政府认为西部地区的100多万名罗兴亚穆斯林是来自孟加拉的非法移民,尽管许多家庭世代生活在缅甸。
