farrahesmith LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS!
One of the featured speakers last night at The Shine was Scott Budnick.
Scott is a fierce champion for children in need. In 2013, Budnick launched The Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC), an organization of very high-achieving, formerly-incarcerated young adults who work to support one another, while stopping the flow of men and women into the criminal justice system. He introduced us to James Anderson who is an ex gang member and was once known as one of the most violent kids in the system. James managed to turn his life around and was just accepted in to UCLA! Listening to this young man tell his story and hear how Scott changed his life had the whole room in tears. Scott is truly making a difference and is looking for volunteers to help teach creative writing on the weekends. If this is something you would be interested in please let me know and I will put you in touch with him.

farrahesmith Best part about being a UCLA alumni is that I get to attend incredible lectures and have the ability to meet leaders in the field of Psychology. Last night I went to the 15th Annual Jeffrey Lecture on the Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness and it was absolutely fascinating!! 1d

farrahesmith The Four Agreements
1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

farrahesmith Hollywood Reporter-Paul Watson, founder of activist group the Sea Shepard Conservation Society, and star of Whale Wars on Animal Planet, says the movie industry has traditionally avoided overt environmentalism.
“They’ve slipped these environmental films in undercover,” he tells THR. “Avatar was really about the Brazilian rainforest, and Interstellar was really about climate change. I think Noah was one of the most blatant ones about climate change, though they didn’t mention it, the message is certainly there.”
But Watson, in Cannes for special presentations of environmental advocacy documentaries Blackfish and Cowspiracy, in which he appears, believes the tide may be shifting.
“I think we’re breaking through right now and people are starting to see the value of these kinds of films,” he says. “People are seeing the power of documentaries...These documentaries are starting to have the same kind of impact as (feature films).” #HollywoodReporter #SeaShepherd #SEASHEPHERD_USA #CaptainPaulWatson #Environment

farrahesmith "Dan Aykroyd will be the voice of marine conservation activist group Sea Shepherd in a new documentary. The Ghostbusters star will narrate a film about the group’s recent campaigns in the Southern Ocean surrounding Antarctica.

The documentary, titled Defend, Conserve, Protect, is currently in production.

The film is a more extensive exploration of the group’s anti-whaling and anti-poaching activities following its Animal Planet TV show Whale Wars."

farrahesmith "As far as eating is concerned, humans are the most stupid animals on the planet. We kill billions of wild animals to protect the animals that we eat. We are destroying our environment to feed to the animals we eat. We spend more time, money and resources fattening up the animals that we eat, than we do feeding humans who are dying of hunger. The greatest irony is that after all the expenses of raising these animals, we eat them; and they kill us slowly. And rather than recognize this madness, we torture and murder millions of other animals trying to find cures to diseases caused by eating animals in the first place." 1w

farrahesmith "Our most profound engagement with the natural world happens on our plates. What you choose to eat and what you choose not to eat is one of the ways you get to embody what you care about. Three times a day you get to express your values. For example whether you eat animals or not, do you want to eat in a way that supports the environment and clear water and air, do you care about labor and the people who feed us and how they are treated. You have an opportunity to express that, to vote. In many other parts of our lives we don't get that kind of power" -Author Michael Pollan 🏻🏻

#SeaShepherd Announces #OperationSleppidGrindini- Faroe Islands Pilot Whale Defense Campaign 2015! Calling for Onshore Volunteers!
Sleppid Grindini is a Faroese term literally meaning "set the whales free." From June 14th until October, Sea Shepherd crew members from around the world will return to the Danish #FaroeIslands to once again halt the mass slaughter of long-finned #pilotwhales and other small #cetaceans in the region.
For hundreds of years the people of the Faroe Islands have been herding migrating pilot whales from the sea into shallow water and slaughtering them. The slaughter, known by the Faroese term #Grindadrap or #TheGrind, is a brutal and bloody tradition that wipes-out entire family groups of whales and dolphins at one time.
Volunteer for #OpSleppidGrindini! Visit www.Seashepherd.org for info

farrahesmith The Universe truly blessed me with an angel for a mom. I didn't grow up with money, but I had the best childhood because she was so loving and present. I never felt like I was missing anything because we were always busy playing at parks, baking cookies etc She is one of those people everyone loves because she has such a kind spirit and huge heart. She is truly one of my very best friends and inspires me every day to be a better person. 🏻🏻 3w
