India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

My donor is officially sold out.

I have one vial left in storage for IVF and that’s it. I could put out a search for more but I don’t think I’ll do that unless IVF fails and I become desperate. For right now, he’s sold out and there’s no chance of that changing.

I’m kinda sad about it mostly because that’s the end of that and there is a possibility that I would have to go through the donor search again (if all else fails) and that’s really not something I want to do again. I knew it was coming. Just sucks that it’s here now.

Today has been key in making me want to hurry up and get out of here.

When I think about needing to pay bills, I want to chunk everything and walk off. I don’t have an issue with paying bills or responsibilities but I do have a problem with these that I don’t actually want. This is just not for me.

I had to pay something today and didn’t get it together in time. I called and can take care of it tomorrow but still. Pisses me off to not get things done when I plan them. There is some other bits involved but I can’t wait to not have to deal with this anymore.

Today has made me crabby but we went out to the park and hung out with aunt K for a long while. J had such a good time. He told me just now that he’s tired and he’s now relaxing in his chair. I love it when he’s tired this time of night. Otherwise he’ll stay up forever!

Just want time to pass so we can go!

With the idea of travel. I am still planning it and hoping to get going. I have lists and links and papers full of information to use to go, to do, to buy. I am really planning it. So far I haven’t managed to get the house cleared out. We have a ton of clothing that I’m trying to get rid of this weekend at least. That will clear up space and my mind.

J is excited to go somewhere. I see him every day wanting to go do something. I feel bad that we’re in the house more often than not. I’d like for him to be outside doing things with other children or exploring and learning. He has a personality that being in the house for too long can get to him. It’s the opposite for me. I can be home all day but he needs to be doing something so that’s the goal. To get my baby out doing something.

I am so anxious to go!

J’s Little Garden

Today’s mystery box slip was for gardening. He chose almost all of the seeds to plant and worked so hard that he was sweaty and dirty in the end.
