Who Is My Friend

Who Is My Friend?

Yesterday 19 August 2017, my world has torn a part while my husband and I are planning our visit to Israel. We have friends that we met while living in the United States and they moved to Israel about a year before we moved to the United Kingdom. Since moving to the United Kingdom we visited them a few time in Israel and they have become like a second family. 

We were close, during our friendship we emotionally supported them when they evacuated their home because of rockets being fired from Gaza and offered for them to stay with us, should the need ever arise.

Before booking our tickets for our next visit. I spoke with them and found a lot has changed since our last visit. So, I confirmed with them it is okay to visit and told come. So, we booked and starting planning our holiday, vacation.

In order to keep in contact, this week I tried calling right after I came home from work at 5 PM and no response. So I keep trying and start messaging on Facebook; however, no response. If I cannot reach them by calling then I will get a reply via Facebook. At first, I think there is nothing out of the ordinary because they work shifts and I know their hours vary. My initial thought is not to make much out of it since I have known them for many years. 

As the week goes on, I keep trying and late yesterday evening I find both my husband and me have been blocked by them on Facebook. No call, no explanation, and a long-term friendship that spans many years of friendship just ignored. 

Suffice it to say it has left both my husband hurt but I do not always show my hurt. Instead, I prefer to write and by writing, I begin to understand. Currently, I am struggling to understand what has caused such treatment. Nonetheless, my husband and I are still going to Israel; however, we will not be seeing them.

Finally, from all of this, it shows me nothing is guaranteed and you cannot take things for granted. It shows friendship is a definition. No matter how long the friendship things can change very quickly and it can change without notice. Therefore, always cherish what you have around you and never take things for granted. By taking things for granted, I believe, it is easy to overlook what is truly important and once it is gone, the hurt is compounded because you realize what you are missing.

 

How To Use Color to Make An Exquisite Slime

How To Use Color To Make An Exquisite Jiggly Slime?

At its core, jiggly slime is nothing more than glue, water, and borax. There is nothing complicated and anyone can mix the three ingredients to produce a marvelous wobbly gelatin like product. The challenge lies in bringing the slime to life and making your slime something others want?

The answer is simple, add color. Adding color is an extension of your personality. It can express your mood, something about you, and it can express something about your product. If you are selling slime then picking the right color and more importantly the right hue is very important. 

To demonstrate the above let us take a look at an example, pink. Not to sound sexist, the color pink tends to associated with feminity and it tends to be a color associated with being a girl. From another perspective, color psychology, pink is seen as being calming and vulnerability. At Brighter Tomorrow we offer a few pink slimes but find one tends to be the most popular hue of pink, can you guess which one?

FAQs About Slime

silver slime

1) Is Slime Safe?

The two basic ingredients in slime are glue and sodium tetra borate decahydrate, referred to as Borax. Borax in its powder state can cause skin irritation and should never be ingested. Repeated exposure to borax powder, without proper gear to protect breathing, is not recommended and it is not recommended being around borax powder when pregnant.

Next, some slimes offered by Brighter Tomorrow will include scents, glitter, or coloring.

To answer the question, Brighter Tomorrow uses very little Borax in its slime and Brighter Tomorrow also produces Borax Free types of slime. This means provided the use is not sensitive to any of the ingredients, the slime is properly handled, the area including skin is cleaned after use, and the slime is not eaten then slime is very safe.

How to Move to the United Kingdom from the United States

Liverpool Albert Docks Sunrise
falls park at night
Falls park at night

Several years ago we moved to the United Kingdom from the mid-west in the United States finally settling in the north of England. When we arrived, we did not know any Americans and it was only a few years later did we start to meet Americans. The below advice is broad sweeping general advice for anyone planning to move to the United Kingdom. It can be read as a whole or by sections.

Ask Yourself, Why?

It is not possible to show up in the United Kingdom and start legally living here. Living in the United Kingdom takes planning and preparation. Your starting point is asking why do I want to move? 

Wanting to live where Shakespeare or Churchill came from and experience another culture that goes back 1,000 years is not good enough. You will be moving away from family, friends, and making a life for yourself in another country. In the UK you will need to find a job, housing, and if you have children a good school. If you have very conservative political leaning, British culture may be overwhelming. Regardless, it is a massively big change and it is a major life stressor. Moving to the United Kingdom is something that will disrupt your life and possibly create division in your family. If you cannot understand your reason then no one else will. 

butterflyInternet Romance

One common reason, I find people move to the United Kingdom they marry someone from here. Their story follows a very typical pattern. Romance blooms and they marry. What is more romantic and beautiful?

I have met a few Americans who meet someone online. They exchange pleasantries, and typically the American will fly over for a visit. They will then fly a few more times to the United Kingdom to meet the person they met online. After a few, jet setting visits they become engaged and apply for a spousal visa. The visa gets approved and soon they are in the United Kingdom. It sounds quite like a fairytale romance set in modern times. What can be purer than meeting the person of your dreams and having technology unite you?

From my experience, those who meet the spouse online and once the excitement of settling in the United Kingdom wears off, many tend to become depressed and angry. I am not saying this is true for all online romances and I am not necessarily saying this true for most online romance. However, from those that I have spoken with a reason for this I believe relates to them becoming isolated from family in the United States because they do not have the money to fly back for periodic visits.

Flying to the United States

Flying to the United States is not cheap. A ticket from a major airport in the United Kingdom to the United States varies greatly. The cheapest for me was £350 per/person during the banking collapse. Average, for me, run around £425 – £525 per person. Highest I have seen is around the holidays and it can run between £650 – £1,200 per person for economy purchased 8 – 12 weeks in advance. Unless you are making at least £25,000 – £30,000 outside of London and outside of the Home Counties you may find expenses keep you from flying back on a regular basis.

Justice for Chunky and AAR Position Statement of Kosher and Hala Slaughter

Animal Abuse Register logo
Animal Abuse Register logo
Animal Abuse Register logo

Problem With Banning Kosher and Hala Slaughter

Recently I have been asked to support a petition calling for the banning for Kosher and Halal slaughter in the UK that is found on a petition site. Since I do not want to give the individual free publicity for the petition, I am not listing here and I believe, such a petition very disturbing.

For those who support a ban, I believe, do so with malice in their hearts. I further believe a calling for a such a ban is both anti-Semitic and is Islamaphobic. Such a ban, I believe, it violates: Article 8 and 9 of the Human Rights ActUnited Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights Articles: 12 and 18 and Equality Act.

Banning Ritual Slaughter Equates to Anti-Semitism

So why do I believe banning Kosher and Hala slaughter is wrong? I will state I am more familiar with Kosher slaughter and Judaism than Islam. So, my statement will be from a Jewish perspective. However, my statement can be equally applied to Halah slaughter and Islam.  Next, for this statement, I am not going to digress about the differences between Kosher and Halal slaughter. Plus I am not going into defining anti-Semitism and then going into a fully explanation as to why banning Kosher slaughter is anti-Semitism. Instead, I will state, denying a group of people to practice their religion that is acceptable in other parts of the world is wrong and amounts to anti-Semitism. Furthermore, by calling for such a ban demonstrates ignorance, it demonstrates a complete lack of understanding and it demonstrates hate.

I believe banning Hala and Kosher slaughter at is denying non-Christians their right to practice their religion without interference from the government and it is forcing a religion, Christianity, upon them. This raises another question for me? How come those seeking to ban Kosher and Hala slaughter do not also seek to ban Bali and Jhatka religious slaughter too? To be fully compliant with the Equality Act, I believe, the petition should call for the ban of all religious slaughter. The answer is simple, it is not about banning all religious slaughter but something much more troubling. Any special interest or political party that pushes for a ban, I believe, does so from an anti-Semitic perspective. Why do I believe this?

If There is No Anti-Semitism Then How Come the Petition Does Not Call for a Ban on All Animal Slaughter?

Let me ask the question if there is no anti-Semitism then why push for banning Kosher instead of pushing for an outright ban on slaughtering of all animals? Especially when Kosher slaughter has very strict rules for the slaughter that protects the animal for it to be considered Kosher and Kosher slaughter is more humane than non-Kosher slaughter? If the petition is about really about animal rights and protecting the animal then why single out Jews and Muslims?

I do not believe any petition calling for the banning of Kosher of Hala slaughter is about animal welfare. Instead, pushing for such a ban is very reminiscent of 1290 Britain under the Edict of Expulsion from Edward 1, reminiscent of America under Jim Crow laws, and the Holocaust under Nazi Germany.

Ban Denies Basic Human Rights by Creating a “Separate But Equal” Society

Simply put, pushing for a ban denies a group of people their human rights and creates a “separate but equal,” segregated society. Denying a group of people their right to religious slaughter meat when other Western nations still protect their right is regressive. It creates a segregated society where some can practice their religion while others are denied their right to freely practice their religion. Furthermore, it promotes state sponsored Christianity at the cost of religious freedom for all and takes away some freedom.

AAR Campaign is about Uniting Not Dividing

My campaign, AAR – Justice for Chunky, is about making Britain safer and it is about uniting this country. It is not dividing the country along geographical, religious, or political ideological lines. Instead, I seek to unite people, respect their rights, and bring about a solution that works for all. I believe banning Kosher slaughter is anti-Semitc and denies a group of people their right to freely practice their relition in the country when other countries allow Kosher religious slaughter.

Finally, I want to remind the Green Party that a part of my condition for working with them was the animal abuse register will not be used to ban religious slaughter. It is my hope the Green Party continues to respect my wish and it is not behind any of the petitions I am seeing.

Questions

 

 

 

 

The Shocking Truth about Borax and Its Use

Borax 300g
Liverpool Albert Docks Sunrise
Liverpool Albert Docks at sunrise

Borax is used to make slime, in particular a type called jiggly. Jiggly is very similar to gelatin and very similar to putty toys of yesteryear. It creates a soft spongy semi-solid texture. Using borax base makes the slime durable and easy to clean up. Thereby making it is easy to take it with you and not have to worry about a mess.

Nonetheless, one of the issues I face as a seller of slime is the issue of borax. Some buyers are reluctant to buy borax base slime because they believe it is bad for them. There is some good reasons for this, such as:

  • It can be a skin irritant
  • If ingested in large quantities it can be toxic

Nonetheless, if borax is not consumed, if it is handled correctly, and proper precautions are taken then borax is relatively safe. When borax is mixed as a part of a slime recipe it becomes iniquitous, inert. The only issue that remains is not ingesting the slime and washing your hands when done.

Finally, I believe there is another reason why buyers are reluctant to buy borax based slime. Borax is easily confused with boric acid or sodium or soidum borate. The confusion lies, I believe, in fact borax is used to make boric acid. However, both are chemically different. Some may be asking if borax is used to make boric acid then how can borax be safe? Without going into an essay on chemistry think about NaCl (sodium chloride or table salt). Two chemicals are used to make salt. Sodium a reactive metal reacts with very dangerous chlorine gas to produce a safe stable salt for human consumption.

With that said, boric acid is used in insecticides. Exposure to boric acid can lead to poisoning. This means, it is easy to confuse borax with more dangerous chemical. Moreover, for the most part, if you do not eat a borax base slime  and wash your hands afterwards then borax slime is relatively safe to use. Therefore, unless you are allergic to borax, I do not believe there is much risk with a borax based slime provided it is not used for consumption and it is used correctly.

Stress Reliving Properties of Slime

At Brighter Tomorrow we strive to make our customers’ lives simpler and happier by helping our customers to get the most from their time. A way to help our customers to get the most from their time is by helping them relax and enjoy that time, especially, if that time is with family and friends.

Visiting family and friends can be a very anxious and stressful time, especially around the holidays.  During the holidays a lot is happening and a lot of demands being put on to you. Instead taking time to appreciate the one you love and instead of enjoying this special time, it is a time of worry.  By not feeling relaxed means you are not enjoying, to its fullest, the precious time you have with your family and friends.

So how can Brighter Tomorrow help you ? One of the products we sell is slime. I know, as an adult the first question is, how can a kids toy help me relax? Slime belongs to a group of stress aids called fidget widgets. Fidget widgets are any item that is used while thinking about something else. Such an item gives the mind a break by distracting it. For some people, a momentary distraction, can help focus attention and can help with relieving stress.

From my own experience with slime, the pulling and the mixing it is therapeutic for me. It momentarily disctacts me and freeing my mind of my daily concerns. After a few minutes playing with slime, I find my worries begin to melt away. So what about slime is relaxing? Personally, I find the physical interaction with slime relaxes me and helps me enjoy my time.

I realise my story of using slime may not mean a lot. However, when looking through media stories about slime being stress relieving there are several stories where people have found slime helping them relieve stress. So, I challenge you to try it and discover for yourself.

Does this mean every person who uses slime will feel relaxed. In the ideal world Brighter Tomorrow hopes slime will be 100% effective. Instead at Brighter Tomorrow we are pragmatic believing when slime used as a part of an overall plan to reduce stress can reduce stress but we at Brighter Tomorrow encourage you to decide for yourself by acting now to get some slime to see if it reduces stress.
