General Events:
International Translation Day
September 30, 2014 in the World
International Translation Day is observed on September 30, 2014. International Translation Day is celebrated every year on the feast of St. Jerome, the Bible translator who is considered the patron saint of translators. The celebrations have been promoted by FIT (the International Federation of Translators) ever since it was set up in 1953.
In 1991 FIT launched the idea of an officially recognised International Translation Day to show solidarity of the worldwide translation community in an effort to promote the translation profession in different countries. This is an opportunity to display pride in a profession that is becoming increasingly essential in the era of progressing globalisation.
Translation is the communication of the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text. A competent translator is not only bilingual but bicultural. A language is not merely a collection of words and of rules of grammar and syntax for generating sentences, but also a vast interconnecting system of connotations and cultural references whose mastery comes close to being a lifetime job.

Blasphemy Rights Day International
September 30, 2014 in the World
Blasphemy Day is observed on September 30, 2014. Blasphemy Rights Day International is a holiday in which individuals and groups are encouraged to openly express their criticism of, or even disdain for, religion. It was founded in 2009 by the Center for Inquiry. A student contacted the Center for Inquiry in Amherst, New York to present the idea, which CFI put its support behind. Ronald Lindsay, president and CEO of the Center for Inquiry said regarding Blasphemy Day, “We think religious beliefs should be subject to examination and criticism just as political beliefs are, but we have a taboo on religion,” in an interview with CNN. The day was set on September 30, to coincide with the anniversary of the publication of satirical drawings of Muhammad in one of Denmark’s newspapers, resulting in the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy.
According to USA Today’s interview with Justin Trottier, a Toronto coordinator of Blasphemy Day, “We’re not seeking to offend, but if in the course of dialogue and debate, people become offended, that’s not an issue for us. There is no human right not to be offended.”

National Mud Pack Day
September 30, 2014 in the USA
National Mud Pack Day takes place on September 30, 2014. A mud pack is an application of mud to the skin of the face for cosmetic purposes. The perceived effects of a facial mask treatment include revitalizing, healing, or refreshing; and, may yield temporary or long-term benefits depending on environmental, dietary, and other skincare factors.
Masks are removed by either rinsing the face with water, wiping if off with a damp cloth, or peeling off of the face by hand. Duration for wearing a mask varies with the type of mask, and manufacturer’s usage instructions. The time can range from a few minutes to overnight. Those with sensitive skin are advised to first test out the mask on a small portion of the skin, in order to check for any irritations.

International Coffee Day
September 29, 2014 in the World
International Coffee Day takes place on September 29, 2014. International Coffee Day is an annual event observed in a handful of countries for the celebration and enjoyment of the popular beverage coffee. This day is also used to promote fair trade coffee and to raise awareness for the plight of the coffee growers.
On this day, many businesses around the world offer free or discounted cups of coffee. Some businesses share coupons and special deals with their loyal followers via social networking. Some greeting card companies sell National Coffee Day greeting cards, as well as free e-cards to help celebrate the occasion. While the exact origin of International Coffee Day is unknown, many countries around the world participate in this event.
Coffee is a brewed beverage prepared from the roasted seeds of several species of an evergreen shrub of the genus Coffea. Coffee is slightly acidic and can have a stimulating effect on humans because of its caffeine content. It is one of the most consumed drinks in the world.
Many studies have examined the health effects of coffee, and whether the overall effects of coffee consumption are positive or negative has been widely disputed. The majority of recent research suggests that moderate coffee consumption is benign or mildly beneficial in healthy adults. However, coffee can worsen the symptoms of some conditions, such as anxiety.

Confucius Day 2014
September 29, 2014 in the World
Confucius Day is celebrated on September 29, 2014. It honors one of the world’s greatest philosophers. Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity.
His followers competed successfully with many other schools during the Hundred Schools of Thought era only to be suppressed in favor of the Legalists during the Qin Dynasty. Following the victory of Han over Chu after the collapse of Qin, Confucius’s thoughts received official sanction and were further developed into a system known as Confucianism.
Confucius is traditionally credited with having authored or edited many of the Chinese classic texts including all of the Five Classics, but modern scholars are cautious of attributing specific assertions to Confucius himself. Aphorisms concerning his teachings were compiled in the Analects, but only many years after his death.
Confucius’s principles had a basis in common Chinese tradition and belief. He championed strong family loyalty, ancestor worship, respect of elders by their children of husbands by their wives. He also recommended family as a basis for ideal government. He espoused the well-known principle “Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself”, an early version of the Golden Rule.

Fantastic “We Are All Wonder Women” Print By Sarah and Catherine Satrun

2 Comments

Awesome! I have to get one of these prints!!! Thank you, Steve! ❤ 😀

This great print has been making the rounds this weekend at an impressive pace!  I originally saw it on DC Women Kicking Ass, but quickly found out that it was EVERYWHERE.  It was drawn by Chicago artists, and twins, Sarah and Catherine Satrun.  They put the print together for last weekend’s C2E2 comic convention, and it sounds like it sold like gangbusters!  If you want to get your own copy, the Satruns are figuring out how to set up an online shop and will likely have them available in the near future, which is super fun.  I might have to get one.  It’s a great piece, simultaneously sweet and inspiring, and it totally captures the spirit of what Wonder Woman is all about.

So congrats to the Satrun sisters on their big success with the prints!  Perhaps they’ll soon be the female equivalent of Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon.

Within the past week, I have joined a Wonder Woman group- Share the Wonder.  And I was like okay, let’s see if this one is any different than the last Wonder Woman groups I’ve been in. It has Christie Marson, niece of William Marston-creator of Wonder Woman in the group. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by some of the interactions, and Squeee’d out loud at a compliment, Ms. Marston gave me in the group. I’m still kinda walking on air from that compliment! 😀

So…imagine my surprise this morning when a person was obnoxiously obnoxious (so bad I had to say it twice). I posted a pic of Wonder Woman and Superman- black and white artwork for people to print out and color if they want.

 Pic:images (1)
Now then, I know that the whole WW and Superman pairing is not everyone’s cup of tea. But honestly, you said your opinion, so drop it. Constantly posting and whining about…. not appropriate behavior. “Is this what Diana has taught you?”   The idea of the group is to share what Princess Diana aka Wonder Woman has shown you, taught you, what does Wonder Woman stand for in your opinion. So honestly this person is annoying… but I’m not dropping out of this group, one person does not speak for the rest. 🙂

The other issue I have had with some in the group is my own issue. “WOW! She’s fucking stacked! Yeah! That’s a WONDER WOMAN!” Really??? *facepalms*   Yeah, I can see her in comic form smacking some sense into these people. LOL 😀

This is the cosplayer known as Riddle’s Messy Wardrobe on FB.
She did a fantastic job her on the uniform. She’s beautiful IMO! 😀

 

However the hilarity really ensued for me, when I was being silly this morning getting ready for my on-call shift at work. I put on my Wonder Woman tiara, why yes I do have a Wondie tiara and bracelets. 😀 And snapped a selfie. I then changed my FB avi to this pic. Why? Because why not? It’s fun and I like having fun. OMG! you should’ve have seen it– the numbers on my messages-in ten minutes from changing my avi, I received 20 messages, two of them were very sweet and supportive. The other oooooh twenty eight now, “You are a disgrace to Wonder Woman. She doesn’t have Blond hair or Brown eyes. Your breasts are too small!” Yeah, those are the snippets narrowed down for you. I’ve left out the really rude and crude ones! You’re welcome!! LOL 😛

One of my friends tagged me:

unnamed2See isn’t he sweet!!! I cropped out his identifying info… I’m sure he wouldn’t have minded, but I prefer to ask for permission first. 😀
so he reblogged this on his blog and added in the comment below- How Awesome is Blue Stevey!!! <3:

bluestevey:

I love this girl, though we haven’t met in person. Wonder Woman is about feminism, the strength of the female essence, & equality. A pure expression of yin, if you will. Michelle is 1 of the strongest, toughest, sweetest, & most feminine (ie: beautiful) women I know. She snapped a shot of herself playing dress-up, just a couple of wks after her, dare I say it?, 48th b-day, as though she were still (she is!) a kid, & she caught flack for it. Why? Because she isn’t young, thin, brunette, & matching someone’s (male, I’m sure) idea of beauty. Because she dares to be herself, & doesn’t give a damn about society’s expectations. What did 1 of my female friends think of this pic? ‘Wow! I love your Wonder Woman swag!’ Let’s get more of that goin’, please. . .

Anywho, what does wonder woman mean to me? Compassion, Equality, Education, Temperance, Diversity, Beauty- not necessarily physical beauty either, Strength, Standing up for one’s beliefs!  Yes, I get all that from the many different aspects of Wonder Woman, she’s had her origin retold many different ways/times. However the basic idea is still the same, Equality between the sexes! She doesn’t hate men, neither do I. I just want equal pay, respect, etc. 😀

So let’s finish this entry up with a lovely speech given by Ms. Emma Watson:

I hope ya’ll are having a beautiful day in your part of the world. Once again, YAY! for writing therapy, in the past some of this would have been a thorn in my side. Now I write it out, and TADA it’s no longer an issue for me to dwell on. 😀

XOXO M’Chel
