Galaxii – An Unintended History of The Present?

Looking back, it doesn't seem all that long ago that I first started writing my Galaxii scifi series. As it turns out, that was back in 1991 - my final year of high school - when I first started writing the backstory of Galaxii. It was futuristic, it was distantly post-apocalyptic, that is, it was set about a century after a devastating war... World War 3... The Big Nuke.

The year of that war? 2020.

Waiter, There's A Bigot In My Soup!

Don't you just hate it when you find a bigot in your soup? Eeeeuw! Gross!

This is exactly what happens to John Q. Public one day as he sits down to enjoy a fresh bowl of soup at his favorite restaurant! He puts his hand up to complain, but unfortunately the waiter doesn't believe him - and as his protests increase, so does the intensity of the waiter's denials!

What will happen to John? Will he get fresh soup - fresh soup without a bigot in it?

A Unique & Different Approach To Child Bullying: "Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You"

I was so pleased to see this review of "Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You" yesterday! :)

"Other Kids Are Kids Almost Just Like You" by Christina Engela celebrates the concept of diversity and how precious every child is. 

This book is about intolerance, diversity, and bullying and encourages readers to accept everyone, irrespective of their differences based on gender, race, and color. The book also emphasizes being compassionate to everyone, regardless of their color, status, and gender. 

Bullying and intolerance are relevant topics in today's times and this book is good for read-aloud sessions in classrooms to help children be more tolerant and compassionate towards others. The illustrations lend clarity to the concept and help readers connect with the author's words. 

The author's approach to the subject is unique and different, and she makes the book appealing to children with the help of colorful illustrations. It is a good book to teach children to be kind and compassionate. 5 stars" - Mamta Madhavan for Readers’ Favorite, Oct 17, 2019

Does Avon Test Their Products On Animals?

I've noticed a heck of a lot of advertising from Avon in my Facebook feed lately. In fact, just over the last couple of weeks, my wife remarked that she'd noticed the same, sudden frenzied number of postings by Avon recruiters and sales reps on Facebook based in our immediate vicinity. The main thing I've noticed about these ads - whether the ads say it outright, or if the posters come on to answer pointed questions about animal testing, they all seem to say the same thing:

"We don't test on animals."

Why do they feel a need to inform people that it's safe to buy Avon products because they don't test on animals? Their website claims - as they do in sharing a similar statement which draws heavily on this claim - that Avon was the first cosmetics company to stop this practice way back in 1989 - 30 years ago - isn't it already old news? Why the continued accusations? Why the back-and-forth argument? What's the real deal here?

Is this smoke? Is there a fire under it?

I decided to look into the matter for myself, and this article is the result.
