Power Plant Safety is Job Number One

Power Plant Men

Originally posted September 14, 2012:

I found out soon after I arrived at the Coal-fired power plant in Oklahoma the first summer I worked as a summer help that Safety was Job Number One.  I was given a hard hat and safety glasses the first day I was there, and I watched a safety film on how to lift with my legs and not with my back.  I thought the hard hat made me look really cool.  Especially with the safety glasses that looked like someone wore as a scientist during the 1950s.  Dark and square.

The first safety glasses we had didn’t have side shields

I used to keep a pair with me when I went back to school.  When I was a senior at the University of Missouri, Columbia, while working at the Bakery on Broadway, I kept a pair with me at all times, along with a…

Inimă, înţelege-mă

Beautiful words and pictures perfect 🌹

Inimă, înţelege-mă

Te-am pus să bei din sângele furtunii,
Care-ncerca să mă inunde zi de zi,
Şi te-am chemat apoi, să-mi stai aproape,
Şi tu veneai când eu credeam că n-o să vii.

Îmi înecam ideile în scris,
Luam timpul şi îl înecăm în mine,
În suflet îmi uitam cuvântul rupt, deschis,
Şi toate temerile mă duceau spre tine.

De mână te plimbam în orice zi,
Şi-n orice zi te plimb, chiar fără să te rog,
Şi bat la uşi, şi baţi şi tu în pieptul meu,
Iar uneori te fac să stai în loc.

Te-am pus să guşti din lacrimi şi te-am hrănit cu dor,
Când tu poate aveai doar poftă de iubire,
Te-am aruncat în mine şi te-am făcut să zaci,
Tăceai şi mă priveai cum îţi puneam zăvor.

Tu, care mă conduci pe coridorul vieţii
Eşti prinsă-ntre bătăi,
Eşti prizonieră-n timp,
În ochii tăi se scutură magia…

‘ Early 1900s portrait studio used cuddly cat as adorable prop ‘

Image: Arnold Genthe/Library of Congress

Arnold Genthe, a Berlin-born photographer, worked a New York portrait studio. He sought to capture the human essence of his subjects, to go beyond a “commonplace record of clothes and a photographic mask.” He used an unobtrusive camera and would not tell the subject when he was going to make the exposure.

He photographed many famous and prominent figures of the time, including Sarah Bernhardt, Jack London, Anna Pavlova and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, even Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.

His cat Buzzer appears in many of his portraits of women. Apparently he offered the cat to his subjects as a prop to put them at ease and produce more natural, unposed images Read

“Her first words… ‘There’s a dead body,” Cst. Douglas Baker – Prince Edward Island

Nice post Sami thanks for sharing regards Ian 🌷

Samina's Forum for police support

There are many reasons not to drink and drive. Impaired driving is the number one criminal cause of death in Canada. RCMP officers are often the first on the scene at motor vehicle crashes and see how tragic the decision to drink and driving really is. They also see the hurt families experience when they’ve learned that a loved one has died.

 RCMP officers from Atlantic Canada recall the crashes that have had an impact on them and also on the people and communities involved. These stories are personal accounts of what happened. The memories of these fatal crashes stay with the police officers, it’s the reality of what happens when a person drinks and drives.

Driving drunk is a choice. RCMP officers hope that by sharing their stories a life or lives can be saved.

flirting with suicidal thoughts

نادية حرحش

Suicide shouldn’t be a flattering idea.
But then I think why not.
Well. I am not actually suicidal to start with. So I am not willing to close those lines and look for the most convenient way to end my life.
I have some issues of concern actually when it comes to death. I need to be finished in a way where I am really not feeling it. I think the best way is to just sleep and not wake up. So some strong sleeping pills with some poisonous pills may trigger a quiet end. It is important that I don’t feel any physical pain or see any blood. I usually don’t like things that hurt.
Well… again
I am just playing with the thought. Not willing to really do it … now. Or tomorrow.
The ration behind it, I confess is scary.
I have reached to a point…
