when I can’t wait for something
“In response to Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries not wanting “not so cool” kids or women who wear size large to wear his company’s clothes, Greg Karber has come up with a funny and creative way to readjust the Abercrombie & Fitch brand.
He’s giving their clothes to the homeless.
After scouring his local thrift shop’s “douchebag section,” Karber heads to LA’s Skid Row to dole out the clothes among the homeless population. Watch the stunt and find out how you can be involved in one man’s troll-job on a company with some pretty unflattering business practices in the video above.”
You know all they can do is hide the clothes because other homeless will try to steal anything nicer than what they have just sayin
8-years ago, CHP Officer Kevin Briggs talked this young man out of jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge.
That young man’s name is Kevin Berthia.
Today he is 30 years old and married with 2 children.
This week he presented Officer Briggs with an award on behalf of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The story of how Officer Briggs talked Kevin down is remarkable.
As you can see in the picture, Kevin is literally one step away from jumping to his death. But for more than hour, the officer listened to Kevin pour his heart out about his troubles and told him, “I know you think things are bad, but they can get better.”
Kevin says, “Officer Briggs never made me feel guilty for the situation I was in. He made feel like, I understand why you are here, but there are alternatives”
Kevin is just one of countless lives Briggs has saved over his 23 year career.
Briggs, who was promoted to Sergeant five years ago, is humble about what he does. He says, ”they make the decision, when they step back over that rail it takes a tremendous amount of courage”
I salute Sergeant Briggs!

It’s National Police Week!
The BLM has a force of approximately 200 Rangers and 70 Special Agents who enforce a wide range of laws and regulations in the prevention, detection, and investigation of crimes affecting public lands and resources. Because of the diversity and size of BLM lands, these officers often work in conjunction with local law enforcement to keep both the local communities and public lands safe. Pictured here is Ranger Jason Cox and Suri from the BLM-OR Eugene District. Jason and Suri, who are part of the BLM K-9 team, often encounter timber theft, occupancy trespass, waste dumps, wildland arson and drug trafficking. In honor of National Police Week, be sure to thank your local law enforcement officers for all they do.
I only have one class to study for now and I feel like I don’t wanna play video games unless I can benefit from it say as a scenario simulation and I just wanna eat and exercise and run non stop right now.
How would I survive summer if there was nothing to do?
I was shaking on the phone… I really feel that God is setting things up for me to do his work.
If it weren’t for the interview with public works, I would have been less prepared for this one.
It went well though!
I haven’t done a research paper in so long. Nor have I done it so well. Finding sources and citing has always been my biggest hinder and annoyance and issue. I just went along with the flow and typed it up. 5-8 pages were required… but I accidentally went to 12.
One other meaningful thing about this paper is that it feels practical. I feel like this could be some sort of master’s thesis or really contribute to the future of what I am writing about (Tijuana River Valley Regional Park).
Hope it works out.
