BONUS EPISODE! I always get excited when a guest comes to visit me in the studio and today was no exception.@afdhel is an international keynote speaker, author and the creator of Good Is The New Cool, which is a book and a conference that is launching in Sydney on Saturday and Melbourne the week after! (Hint - book your ticket and use the discount code UP2GOOD). In meeting Af today, I honestly felt like I was hanging out with a very old friend. A kindred spirit who managed to match my obsession for decoding purpose. Our conversation today went around the world as we dissected purpose as a driving force in the next economy, purpose in brand strategy and purpose in an organisational context. We also looked at the connection between personal purpose and the pursuit of a deeper and more spiritually connected life. There was no stone left unturned. Tune into The GPS Of Purpose & Why Good Is The New Cool with Afdhel Aziz on #decodingpurpose#itunes#spotify https://www.rebeccatapp.com/decodingpurposepodcast/2019/8/15/bonus-ep-the-gps-of-purpose-amp-why-good-is-the-new-cool-with-afdhel-aziz #purpose#socialimpact#goodisthenewcool#socialentreprenuers#activism#purposeeconomy#love#conspiracyoflove#podcast#leadership#businesspodcast
With 58% saying yes, and 42% saying no, it is clear that there is a lot of controversy when it comes to the topic of the Israeli ban on the congresswomen Omar and Tlaib. Was it justified and should it have happened? The people who say yes, emphasize that the two congresswoman have constantly spewed hate speech about the country of Israel and its policies, and because of that, the country has no obligation to let them in if they are coming just to criticize the nation. Furthermore, there is an Israeli law that states that the country is in fact allowed to ban people if it is clear that the people attempting to enter the state despise it. Recently, Tlaib was given permission to enter to see her family, but not to criticize the country, and she turned it down. According to many people, this is proof that Tlaib never wanted to visit for family reasons. The people who say no, like to point out that a democracy such as Israel should be allowing freedom of speech, and criticism of the country should not affect the reason for why or why no a person is granted access. They also claim that (this may or may not be true) that this denial of these congresswoman is promoting an anti Muslim agenda led by president Trump. Again, we aren’t necessarily agreeing with this. Controversial indeed! What do you think? Should the congresswomen have been banned from Israel? Is this an anti-Muslim action by the Israeli government?

The Leguminati. Available in Peaceful White or Seitanic Black. Corruption is everywhere... but so are we. Martin Luther King Jr. said "Those who love peace must learn to organise as effectively as those who love war. We are rising, we are growing, we are the few who have the power to change the many. We are the Leguminati. Various elements make up the design as a whole including the Hamsa Hand which has within it a collection of Legumes, the latin around the outer says "De abstinentia a carnibus, ovis et lacticiniis" to abstain from meat, eggs and dairy. There is also some scripture style text "vegan for the animals" and a general parody type design. ____________________________ All joking aside, we as vegan activists and vegans are making a huge impact and on the right side of history. With what is effectively an indirect support from the United Nations Environment Program, (UNEP) regarding animal agriculture having "brought us to the verge of catastrophe" regarding climate change and the UN advising and recommending a plant based diet as the only way to achieve our climate objective and a massive decrease in animal agriculture (hopefully eliminated) the industries are going to have to change voluntarily or be forced to change by governments if the UN put the pressure on, which seems inevitable (but we will see). We need to see a vegan world or we won't see a world at all, it will have made us extinct. Our own species will have made us extinct. ____________________________ - 100% organic ring-spun combed cotton. - Top High Street brand quality. - Also available in 2 colours. Peaceful White and Seitanic Black - Sizes range from XXS to 3XL
Pakistani actress #mehwishhayat once again called out #bollywood star #priyankachopra for her faux celebrity #activism and highlighted the responsibility that comes from an influential position in an op-ed for #cnn. “celebrities who act as charity spokespeople should always focus on humanitarianism. Chopra — again, a #unicef Goodwill #ambassador — should not be using her voice to legitimize a regime opposed to the values she claims to represent,” she wrote. The former Miss World received a lot of backlash for her problematic response to a question posed by an audience member, #ayeshamalik at a #beautycon in #losangeles. Malik, a Pakistani-American called out Chopra for her warmongering tweet post-Pulwama attack when tensions between the two neighbouring countries, #pakistan and #india, were high. Hayat pointed out that Bollywood as an industry has too often been used to fuel hate and #islamophobia. “#Celebrity activism often escapes the kind of scrutiny most political activism is subjected to. It is often seen as either positive or pointless — but rarely dangerous,” the 36-year-old actor added. She went onto say “Rather than use her position as a US-based celebrity to broaden what it means to be an Indian celebrity, she has fallen into the same jingoistic role that her fellow countrymen are forced to adopt at home.” “It’s this kind of failure that tempts many observers to insist that #celebrities stay out of politics completely. Just look at the damage those ill-informed starlets can cause, they say, wading into issues they know nothing about. They should shut up and stick to entertaining us — in silence,” she continued. Hayat concluded. “It is something I would love to work with my Indian colleagues on — including Priyanka Chopra.” On penning down this oped, the actress said that is was a great opportunity to raise issues close to her heart. In an interview with Sky #news, the actress requested for a fair portrayal of her

Today we march at the London Official Animal Rights March with thousands of other passionate, like-minded people, who agree that there is NO excuse for animal abuse...who agree that needlessly taking the lives of sentient beings who feel joy and pain just like us, who don’t want to die, when we have SO many options, is ethically wrong. Eating animals is not a personal choice when there is a victim on the other end who did NOT have a choice. There is NO excuse for animal abuse. Tradition is NOT an excuse. Taste is NOT an excuse. Habit is NOT an excuse. Ignorance is NOT an excuse. 57 billion land animals and 2 trillion marine animals are killed every year for “food”. But it’s NOT food. It’s violence. Today and everyday we fight for one of the largest social justice issues of our time. Please help the animals by making more compassionate choices.

Plant Powered/Plant Fuelled Vintage Dumbbell - "But where do you get your protein or energy from?". - Plants. Just like elephants, really strong animals and many other animals the human race kills and exploits needlessly by the thousands every second of every day. Here is a quote by Dr Milton Mills, M.D. "All protein is made by plants. I'll state that again for the record; ALL protein is initially made by plants, all of it... and it is not necessary to eat animal tissue in order to get protein. Only plants have the ability to actually take nitrogen from the air, break those molecules apart and incorporate that nitrogen into amino acids and then make protein. Any protein you get from an animal is simply recycled plant protein". Some of the most elite athletes in the world are vegan and/or thrive on a completely plant based diet, no flesh, no dairy, no eggs, no animal products. Not only is it not necessary to eat animals or anything from animals to survive, we can actually thrive, live longer and achieve better without doing so and only eating a well-balanced plant based diet. 100% net profits donated to animal sanctuaries, Rescue attempts and activism. 100% vegan materials and inks, ethical, organic, fast global shipping.

Story translated from the very important account @maisnoncestpasraciste: "A small but alarming account, I was dating a guy for a few years and this guy asked me not to speak to him anymore because it went against his values, basically he was against the mixing of races and even though my skin colour didn’t bother him at that time, it would eventually because he had to have white children to converse the white race. You might think this is fake, but unfortunately it isn’t." . This is such a shocking account of archaic beliefs, and it reminds us of the prejudice mixed race people and their families still face, and of how political our existence can be at times. . Thank you to the person who shared this, and to @maisnoncestpasraciste for allowing us to share it.
