Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria

One man climbs 24 flights of stairs several times a day alongside dormant elevators. Street vendors hawk plastic washboards for $20. And families outstretch their hands as crews in helicopters drop supplies in communities that remain isolated.

This is life one month after Hurricane Maria slammed into the U.S. territory on Sept. 20 as a Category 4 storm that killed at least 48 people, destroyed tens of thousands of homes and left tens of thousands of people without a job. It was the strongest hurricane to hit Puerto Rico in nearly a century, with winds just shy of Category 5 force.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” retired schoolteacher Santa Rosario said as she scanned empty shelves at a supermarket in the capital of San Juan that had run out of water jugs — again.

Maria caused as much as an estimated $85 billion in damage across an island already mired in an 11-year recession. That has complicated and delayed efforts to restructure a portion of a $74 billion public debt load that officials say is unpayable. And it has thrust Puerto Rico’s territorial status into the international spotlight, reviving a sharp debate about its political future as the island attempts to recover from flooding, landslides and power and water outages.

Maria has also put Puerto Rico into the U.S. political spotlight with President Donald Trump on Thursday giving himself a “10” for his response to the devastation wrought by the hurricane. Asked when the 3.4 million U.S. citizens living there could expect power to be fully restored, Trump said it will take “a while.”

“There’s never been a case where power plants were gone,” Trump said, seated alongside Gov. Ricardo Rossello in the Oval Office. “So it’s going to be a period of time before the electric is restored.”

Roughly 80 percent of power customers remain in the dark, and another 30 percent are without water. Schools remain closed. Stoplights are not operating. And while nearly 90 percent of supermarkets have reopened, many have bare rows of shelves empty of goods ranging from water to bananas to canned tuna. (AP)

The area is without running water or grid power as a nightly curfew remains in effect. Despite multiple visits from FEMA, the town has yet to receive any FEMA aid. Only 10.6 percent of Puerto Rico’s grid electricity has been restored. Puerto Rico experienced widespread damage including most of the electrical, gas and water grid as well as agriculture after Hurricane Maria, a category 4 hurricane, swept through.

A kind of part two to this: x

Are you sure you can’t come to this last bar, Y/N?” One of your friends slurred out.

You and your friends had been bar hopping and so far you were mildly drunk. You handled your alcohol well, unlike your friends and only agreed to join them to see your friends get ugly drunk,  instead, they flirted with anything that had a dick and legs. Your standards meant that none of the guys offered you drinks so you were tipsy at best.

“I’m going to head home. I don’t like the bar that you’re headed to anyway”  You replied, disentangling yourself from another drunk off her face friend.

“Okay. We’ll miss you”  They all shouted dissolving into a fit of giggles before stumbling down the street.

You rolled your eyes and began your walk home. It was only 1 am but it was that odd time of night where everyone was out but everyone was in. The roads were empty due to most of the people being in clubs or in their homes. It was quite peaceful for you. The smell of rain lingered in the air and the cool breeze did everything to relieve you from the stuffy air in the club. 

You cut through the usual alleyway. It wasn’t like most cliche shortcuts, it was between two houses and continued like that for a few streets. The neighbourhood was a good one, mostly rich white families so you knew you were okay. You were back on the main road, right in the middle of mystic falls which was pretty much deserted. From your peripheral vision, you could see shadows moving but you knew that there wasn’t anything behind you. 

You looked down at your phone to reply to a text when you saw a man in front of you. You quickly stopped to avoid crashing into him.

“Well lookie here” The guy sung.

“Excuse me?” You replied, pissed and confused at the attractive stranger.

“I’m going to kill you, sweetheart”

You burst out laughing.

“I think someone spiked your drink, dude.”

“You should be cowering in fear. Why are you not cowering in fear?” He asked, his evil demeanour changing.

“Because when a random guy comes up and says ‘i’m going to kill you’ at 1 am on a Saturday night he’s drunk. So if you don’t mind, sir. I’ll be on my way”

“But I am going to kill you”

“Yeah of course you are. Now move please”

All of a sudden a metal railing appeared in the stranger’s hands. He bent it easily even managing to knot it in the middle.

“I could really kill you if I wanted to.”

“Yes, but so could another random stranger or even a dog. You’re probably jacked up on some ‘roids so please let me pass”

“I’ll let you live, you’re funny”

You narrowed your eyes and continued walking. 

“I’ll see ya around” The stranger called out.

You thought that would have been the last you saw of the stranger, only you were clearly mistaken.

anonymous asked:

can I get an imagine whit tristan like hes sick or smt N you take xare of him xxx

Okie doke :) 

Tristan imagine, he’s sick: 

“Y/N….” Tristan whispers, giving your side a gentle nudge. You open your eyes and squint against the sun that’s beaming into the bedroom. “Yeah Tris?” You mumble, rubbing sleep away from your eyes. “I don’t feel good” He pouts. You sit up and frown. “How? Your stomach? Head? Chest?” You question. “My head hurts.. And I’m really warm… I also kind of threw up in the night..” He replies. Your frown grows bigger and you kick the blankets off. “Don’t leave” He whimpers. You give him a small smile and peck his cheek. “I’ll be right back babe” You tell him before walking to the bathroom. You dampen a washcloth and grab some advil, along with a glass of water. You walk back to the bedroom and set the water onto the bedside table. “I’m guessing you have a fever, so take some advil” You order as you pass him the pills and water. He sits up and takes them from you. “Thanks” He says before popping the pills in his mouth and swallowing them with a few mouthfuls of water. “Here,” You say passing him the washcloth, “Put this on your forehead. It’ll help” He sighs and lies down with his head in the middle of his pillow as he places the cloth onto his sweaty forehead. “Come cuddle?” He pleads, looking at you with puppy eyes. You smile a little and crawl into the bed next to him. “You’re the best, you know that?” Tristan smiles at you tiredly. “I just don’t like it when you’re sick.. I want you to get better” You reply, shrugging a little. “Besides, I knew you’d do the same for me” You say. “I most definitely would. And I may have to if you get sick from me” He chuckles. You roll your eyes and rest your head onto his chest. “It’ll be worth it if it means you getting better quicker” You tell him. “Can we cuddle all day?” He asks, giving you a hopeful smile. You smirk and nod, wrapping an arm across his stomach. “Course we can. I wasn’t planning on going anywhere"

Every s5 episode so far has been a step towards canon SQ

1) The Dark Swan

Regina knowing about Emma’s baby blanket so she is obviously someone Emma trusted with that piece of info. The show could’ve used any article of clothing but no they picked Emma’s most valuable possession for the spell.

I mean look at her face! Maybe it’s my shipper goggles but all I see unadulterated, pure, honest love.

x

Then we had Emma giving Regina her dagger which is something Rumple did with his TL Belle as a wedding proposal. I really thought Emma would give it to Hook but no she gave it to Regina, who now has Emma’s life in her hands WHOA. Emma willingly (without any prompting) gave up complete autonomy over herself to Regina… to control or destroy her. This is implicit TRUST, the foundation of any loving relationship.

Emma to Regina: I saved you. Now save me.

x

Enough said.


2) The Price

Emma’s jealousy towards OQ (see my post for complete explanation and more jealous Emma)


Regina to Emma: I know you. The good you is still in there

Which is similar to Belle’s “there’s still good in you” to her TL Rumple. You see Regina’s words can still make stone-cold Emma falter. Regina bringing out a glimmer of old Emma must have been a hint that she would have a big role in saving her. 

x


2 failed CS TLK’s and both were not so romantic i.e. Emma attempting TLK to get rid of her darkness and Dark Emma trying to seduce Hook.


In the end montage, Regina is the “magic that threatens to undo your most evil doing” - she snapped her finger to reverse Dark Emma’s spell and turned the dwarf cosplay of Emma (the beanie and red jacket were a dead giveaway) back to normal… foreshadowing that Regina will be the one to bring the old Emma back.

x

And we all know “true love is magic” that can break any spell! :D


3) Siege Perilous

CS breakup - Hook’s “that you isn’t here” which contrasts with TL Rumbelle’s “there’s still good in you”

x


4) The Broken Kingdom

CS paralleled to false love Arthur/Gwen (at least the later version)

x

x

None of these CS romantic scenes mattered anyway since we know Hook stopped loving Emma a few weeks later.

Now you might retort “But WAIT, What about the pink flower petals being thrown over Lancelot and Gwen at her birthday party? They can’t be fake love as the real Gwen loved Lancelot!”. A fellow Swen explained it perfectly here.

When lancelot includes the phony Arthur love flowers in the party he throws Guinevere to ensure her happiness Bc he thinks that’s what she wants. Just like when emma gives her life for regina’s “happiness” with hood.

Even here the pink flowers as a symbol of “deception” make sense because Lancelot made Gwen think it was Arthur who planned the flowery birthday gift not himself. ;)


Lancelot/Gwen parallel to Swan Queen OMG. :O This is so not a “seed” (read lgbt hint) the showrunners talked about but the whole freakin PLANT.

And we know that Lancelot was the one Gwen’s heart truly wanted!

x


Are these all “seeds” being planted by the writers to suggest that Swan Queen are true love? Only time will tell. ;)

Can’t we stay in?

We haven’t been out in ages though? I’m happy with whatever you decide but I think it would be good for us to get out the house

I don’t want to go to any celeb party or anything. Nowhere where there might be cameras, I look a state and I’ve still got spots from stress which I can’t cover up and I know Soho House would be nice because there are no cameras but I look horrible.

Who said we had to go to any celeb party or Soho House? Just me and you wherever you decide, just not in the house x

I really don’t want to leave. I feel like everyone is staring at me and I get overwhelmed even answering the door to the delivery man. I just look a state and like everyone knows about everything.

No one is staring at you, love. And if they do, it’s probably because you’re so beautiful. You don’t need to feel overwhelmed, ok? I’m here every step of the way. I promise, no one else knows about how you feel. It’s just between me and you x

Are you sure?

100%. Trust me.

I do. It’s just hard doing this right now and going through this, and I don’t mean to feel so selfish because I know you’re feeling it too because of me and I feel so bad for feeling this way x

You don’t need to apologise, I only want the best for you and the best for you tonight is getting out and having some fresh air x

Can we just go for a long walk and pick up some chips on the way back? I don’t want to be around other people…

Of course we can. I promise you’ll be better after some fresh air, some chips, and some cuddles. I love you x

I love you too x

Pues desde mi forma de pensar, sé muy natural, busca alguna manera de hablarle y no seas muy tosca, nunca te metas con su orgullo y comprende si no es muy demostrativa.

so it got out that nintendo of america removed the boob size slider from xenoblade chronicles x

are you guys ready for another few weeks of arguing over censorship sparked by this controversy that didn’t need to happen because literally nobody would have been upset over a character creator tool having a boob slider? because I’m not ready for that pile of bullshit.

like. this petty arguing wouldn’t happen if the censorship didn’t happen. but it did happen and the internet noticed because of course the internet noticed, and now there’s going controversy where there would have never been one if they had just left the boob slider alone, and I’m going to have a headache reading all of it.

27 please!

HELLO FRIENDS! I have actually decided to pair this one with #31, which is SEXTING! ENJOY!

#27- Teasing you in public 
#31- Sexting

On any other day, Harry hates PDA.

Sure he’ll hold your hand or give your forehead a quick kiss or two, but otherwise, no.  Definitely not.

Not that you minded.  In all honesty, you’d never been one for it either.  But still. Sometimes a little bit more would’ve been nice.

So when Harry reaches down and squeezes your ass while you’re all standing backstage before the show, you can’t help but jump.  

Though his actions go unnoticed by the others in the room, you become completely self conscious.  You turn around within the circle of his arms.  “Harry,” you scold quietly.

“What?” he asks innocently.  He kisses your neck.

“What are you doing?”  You are not, by any means, complaining.  But still.  His behavior is odd.

“Can I not love on my girlfriend?”  He asks, burying his nose in your hair and kissing your head.

“No, by all means, love on your girlfriend.  But just… why?”

With one more soft kiss to your head and another pinch of your ass, he smirks.  “Why not?”

He lets go of you and walks over to sit beside Niall on the couch, and you’re left standing confused and lacking the warmth his body against yours was providing.  

Harry glances at you from his spot on the couch and smirks in response to your look of bewilderment.  He then turns to the TV to watch, well, whatever it is Niall is watching.

You shake your head and walk over to where Lou and Lottie are sitting, deep in conversation and eating off of the fruit tray provided by catering. 

“Hey, y/n,” Lottie greets, barely looking up from her phone. 

For the next few minutes, you get lost in conversation with the girls, laughing and joking and sharing memories from the tour.  Suddenly, however, your phone vibrates with a text from Harry.  You peek up at him slowly, but he’s not looking at you.  Instead, he’s focusing on the TV and laughing at a joke Niall just told him.  When you unlock your phone, you chew your bottom lip anxiously.

From: H. x
You look so fucking sexy today.  I can’t wait to get you back to the hotel.

You bite your lip, hoping that the girls don’t notice the heat rising to your cheeks as you reply.

To: H. x
What are you trying to do to me, Harry?

From: H. x
That dress looks so incredible on you. But its taking everything in me not to rip it off of you and take you right now.

To: H. x
Harry oh my god you can’t do this to me right now

From: H. x
I’m going to tease you until you’re begging me to fuck you, and fuck you till you beg me to stop.

You glance up from your phone and still, Harry isn’t so much as looking in your direction.  He is fascinated by the game on the television.  Although, the little tent in his jeans does not go unnoticed. 

To: H. x
Fuck, Harry.  Where is this coming from? I want you.

From H. x
Are you wet?

To: H. x
Very.

From H. x
Good
.

Harry stands suddenly and heads over in your direction.  When he’s looming over where you and the girls are sitting, he smiles innocently down at you.  “Hello, ladies. You gossiping about me?”

“We weren’t,” Lou says, “But now we’re going to.  Y/n, got any dirty little secrets about Harry?”

You can feel his eyes staring practically into your soul and you laugh to try and make him stop. “Not any that I’m going to tell you while he’s right here!”

Harry chuckles.  “Why not, love?  Hm?” He reaches down and places his hand on your back.  At first, he scratches lightly. But then, the scratches become stronger, just shy of pain, and you honestly don’t know if you’ve ever been more turned on.

Harry carries on a conversation with them as he moves to sit in the chair beside you.  Never once is there a halt in the conversation.  Never once does he look at you.  But the scratches up and down your back are a good indication of where his mind is atcurrently. 

His long fingers brush over the hook of your bra and before you know what’s going on, your bra becomes significantly looser.  With skilled fingers he unhooks your  bra through your shirt, a skill even you struggled with sometimes.

No one notices, thank God, but your cheeks are turning red.  Harry turns to you and smirks.  “Oh, what’s wrong, y/n?”  He raises an eyebrow innocently, as if daring you to say something.

“What?” You ask, trying and failing to stay calm.  “Nothings wrong.  Why?”

“Your cheeks are incredibly red,” Lou points out.  “You feeling alright?”

You sigh, and you know Harry loves every second of this.  “Oh,” you say.  “Yeah.  No, I’m fine.  It’s just… a little hot in here.  I think… er, can I step out back for a minute?”

“Of course, love!” Lou says.  “The door is right there when you go out into the hallway.”

“Harry?” You say, through nearly gritted teeth.  “You wanna join me?”

He smiles innocently up at you.  “No, I’m okay.  Thanks, love.”

You stare at him, waiting for him to say “just kidding” or something along those lines but he doesn’t.  So you smile slowly, communicating with him in your mind “oh you’re gonna get it.”

You turn to leave and just as you’re about to get outside, you hear Harry call out, “Feel better, y/n!”

(Send me a number!)

Summary: Y/N and Michael meet for the first time after talking on Twitter. 

A/N: Michael is in italics and Y/N is in bold ~ Katie x

Are you here yet? I’m sat here looking like a loner 😨

The new message from Michael made the screen of your phone light up. 

I’m about 5 mins away you replied.

You and Michael had been internet friends for over 2 years now. But he lived in Australia and you lived in England so you had never had the chance to meet. But now Michael was doing a UK tour with his band, 5 seconds of summer, so you had both arranged to meet at a Starbucks when he was closest to your town.
Yours and Michael’s internet friendship was the dream of every teenage girl. You had began running a fan account for the band All Time Low and Michael had began talking to you on there. By that time, his band was barely famous and he only had a few thousand followers on Twitter. You quickly became mutuals and would talk over DM. After that, you exchanged mobile numbers and spoke on iMessage.
You never went a day without some form of contact. You would both always retweet each other’s tweets and FaceTime for hours when the time zones aligned. You were best friends and you were sure that when you met him in real life, there would never be an awkward silence and that you’d be inseparable. 

Please hurry 😫 I’m getting bored 

I’m going as fast as I can! I swear to God if you turn out to be a balding 40 year old man I will kick your ass into tomorrow 

I promise I’m not … But I guess that’s exactly what a balding 40 year old man would say

You smiled before locking your phone and then getting out of the car. As you walked to the entrance your palms were getting sweaty and your hands were shaking. Despite feeling completely at ease when talking to him online, you felt nervous about what he’d think of you in real life. What if he thought you were ugly? Or that your voice was too high and that you had a weird accent? You tried to shake the worries out of your mind and opened the door.
As soon as you walked in you spotted him. He had posted a selfie on Instagram yesterday so you knew that at the minute he had neon green hair. Sure enough, you saw it and you noticed that he was facing away from the door. You quickly walked towards him, your apprehension turning into excitement and when you reached him you covered his eyes with your hands and said: “Guess who?”
“I really hope this is Y/N or this is going to be extremely awkward.” Michael said before standing up. He was so tall that you couldn’t keep your hands covering his eyes but it didn’t matter because as soon as he saw you he enclosed you in a tight hug.
“Oh my God, I didn’t think you would be this tiny. Jesus, you’re adorable,” he said and picked you up while he was still hugging you. You giggled and wrapped your legs around his waist. You leaned back so you could see his face and you could see that he was smiling widely at you,
“I’m not small, you’re just freakishly big!” You retorted. “Now put me down, you idiot, before people start to stare.”
“Who cares if people look? I like having you this close after being so far apart. And also, you smell really good,” he blushed, putting you back down on the floor obediently. When your feet were safely on the ground you walked around to the other side of the table and sat down so you were facing him.
“So tell me Michael, how much more awesome am I in real life?”
