Rights Violation or Just Sensitive



These days, many people are fighting for their rights. Whenever they see a human rights violation, they are quick to protest. However, there is one thing that needs to be understood. Not all perceived violations are legitimate violations. There are some people that are just sensitive. Some people are so caught up in the rights violation deal that they tend to make very little misunderstandings into huge violations. In many cases, they don’t have a case. Also, there are certain cases where it is either not a violation or just a violation on a technicality. It would also turn into a violation of the supposed offender’s rights if he was merely exercising his rights as a human being.

This is where human rights can be very confusing. These small misunderstandings are often ignored due to the fact that it is very hard to tell whether or not it is a violation of one’s rights. There are also the people who just want to be offended due to some issue in their lives. Either way, these cases are typically hard to fight and often rules in the favor of the supposed offender if it is taken to court. It is often determined to not be worth the hassle.

Also, people that are used to the more blatant violations of human rights tend to have a thicker skin when it comes to dealing with misunderstandings. People like Yeonmi Park know how to handle human rights issues of all sizes. She has studied the rights of humans and knows where the rights of one human being ends and the rights of another begins. She has dealt with the major issues that turned out to be life threatening. While she could have been bitter about her upbringing and life, she has chosen to walk a path of compassion and kindness for others.

Human rights can be a tricky thing to deal with. These days anything can be treated as a human rights violation. Even looking at a person the wrong way can be treated as a human rights violation depending on the person. There are many people that are looking to whine and cry about rights violations when people like Yeonmi of have experienced the worst of it and survived. In the case of an actual human rights violation, it is up to the person to decide whether or not to pursue it and that may include getting in contact with a human rights activist in order to get advice as to how to handle the issue. From there, he or she could proceed and get someone to hear the case.

Gold Drops to 5 Year Low



Monday saw the price of gold drop to below $1,100 an ounce, its lowest price since February 2010. Reuters reports that over 33 tons of gold traded hands in less than 2 minutes on the Shanghai exchange early Monday morning, resulting in a low of $1,088 per ounce.
Analysts Bruce Levenson is attributing the sudden sell-out to a number of causes, including the strength of the U.S. dollar, which is at an all-time high. Impending interest rate hikes in the U.S. and a record 2013 import of gold by China, which caused a market surplus, have also been cited as possible reasons for the drop in gold price.
Whatever the reason, the decline was swift and sudden, causing two separate trade halts in U.S. gold futures. Most technical analysts believe this rate may hold, but others caution that the markets could see a further drop in the worth of gold in the near future. Analyst Christopher Hine is quoted by Yahoo News as stating, “What today’s move does is kick off the bigger bear trend … $1,000 is where we’re gunning for.”

Uncle Jesse Gets DUI



Say it aint’ so, Uncle Jesse? John Stamos partied too hard this weekend and got busted for DUI in Beverly Hills. After several 911 calls, police pulled Stamos over in Beverly Hills. The notoriously handsome actor identified himself as Stamos and was quickly booked for drinking while driving. Unlike most drunk drivers who go straight to jail, Stamos was taken to the hospital instead. Apparently, Stamos may have been suffering from a medical condition that required immediate medical attention. At the hospital, he was issued a citation for DUI and released to the care of the hospital. After being released from Cedars-Sinai, Stamos took to Twitter to thank everyone for their love and support. He even thanked the Beverly Hills Police Department. Stamos is not scheduled to answer charges regarding the DUI until September 2015, a few weeks before his new sitcom, Grandfather, debuts on TV.

I can’t believe that! Thanks to my buddy Zeca Oliveira for posting this on your website… totally worth the laugh.
