Its, A Mother’s Day Poem


 

Durable, flexible, intelligent,

Best workhorses ever created.

Eyes pained.

Backs flogged.

 

These its,

These puny its have no value.

 

Mouths starved.

Necks choked.

Shoulders bruised.

Torsos kicked.

 

These its,

These puny its have no voices.

Legs spread wide.

Ears boxed.

Faces slapped.

Hair unkempt.

 

These its,

These puny its have no value.

 

Who are these its?

Forgotten and unacknowledged,

Running, pleading, fearing for their lives.

 

These its,

These puny its have no voices.

 

The brunt of war carried in their flesh.

While men pat themselves on the back for heroism.

 

These its,

These puny its have no value.

 

Oh, women of the world,

I know today is Mother’s Day,

But your its are being attacked.

 

Bellies impregnated by rape,

Faces scarred by encrusted, scabrous hands,

Disfigured bodies with lost limbs,

 

These its,

These puny its have no voices.

 

Slaughtered,

Murdered,

Gassed,

Shot down,

Their psyches damaged.

 

These its,

These puny its have no value.

 

Hands grabbed,

Bound and cast to the ground,

Legs spread wide and raped,

Whore,

Bitch,

Slut,

Cunt,

Their Psyches branded.

 

These its,

These puny its have no voices.

 

Oh, women of the world,

Today is Mother’s Day,

But these its are our sisters,

Shouldn’t our voices become theirs?

This poem is dedicated to every woman trapped by war at this moment wherever they are, in whatever country.

Happy Mother’s Day.

Shalom,

Pat Garcia

Apple Has Done It Again!


If anyone were hoping that the innovation and drive to be the best would diminish at the Apple Corporation, or that the quest for perfection  would cease to exist  and reduce itself to the status quo of  waiting and copying what everybody else is doing in the digital world,  or even thought that the Apple company’s ability to create and invent continuous high performance devices that would outdistance their competitors  had ended with the departure of its founder, found out on March 7, 2012 that they had been living in a world of make-believe.  Reality hit everyone  with the unveiling of the iPad 3, and the explosion that blasted out was loud and clear and could be heard all around the world. Apple has done it again!

Not that Apple ever gave anyone the impression that they were lost or wringing their hands for new ideas after the sad departure of its founder, but it was generally assumed, in my opinion, by many of Apple’s competitors that they now had time to catch up and  breathe and set their own distinguishable mark  in this highly competitive field.  Some of them probably saw themselves sitting in the front seat on the number one spot, taking over the number one position as the best tablet PC ever–that is until the presentation on March 7, 2012, when Apple threw many of them into a frenzy and sent many research and development people from the different companies back to the drawing board to begin again.

With the introduction of the iPad 3, Apple has shown us again, who is the King on the road among  tablet  PCs in this Post PC era.  The iPad 3 with its HD 1080p resolution, which is even better than the HD on your television, with its image stabilization and its voice dictation, is more than enough to astonish any consumer.

However,  Apple did not satisfy themselves with marginal development. No,  they  stepped out and put a power punch behind the iPad 3 that will take its competitors a little time to recover from. It was their knock out punch as they presented the iPad 3 with its Retina Display,  and threw us into the future with its next generation wireless 4G with DC-HSDPA , LTE, and HSPA+,  and let us not forget to include the fact that they kept the 3 G, so that is also 3G compatible all over the world.

The Apple family of geniuses then crowned the moment with its new A5X chip––the new quad-core powerhouse.  One can only say, “Wow!”

The iPad 3 goes on sale on 16 March in several major countries. A week later, there will be a roll out to other major countries. So please do not panic, there will be enough iPad 3’s for everyone.

I am personally looking forward to its release.  Having already  invested in the first generation iPad, I hesitated to invest in the iPad 2, because I had the feeling that the iPad 3 was going to be a bomber, which it was. The blast was felt everywhere.

As they say in the neighborhood that I grew up in, “they done done it again!”  It is not the best English in the world, because it is slang, but very appropriate for the presentation event of the iPad 3 held on March 7,2012,  “Apple done done it again!”

So, Apple,  thanks for setting the record straight, when it comes to Post PC Era devices you are simply the best!

Ciao,

Pat Garcia

How to survive your fictional characters all night bickering in six easy ways…


patgarcia:

Hi Everyone,
Here is some excellent advice for fiction writers.

It is two AM. You are wrestling with one of your fictional characters as to, well it really depends on your fictional character. Mine decided that the furry Ape needed another blog post. Actually, it was one of her decrees. And don’t tell her, I just referred to her as a fictional character! Please!

Frankly, if you start using your fictional character’s name as passwords for your real life social networks and other electronic devices, you are a goner. My friend you may as well kiss your sleep good-bye. If she or he (let me just stick with one pronoun from now on) decides that you will absolutely listen to her at two AM, no earplug ever invented is going to shut her out.

1. Get up and write

First of all, you may as well get up out from that comfy duvet and get to your primary writing device…

iOS bug causes Messages to crash, iPhone to reboot when a certain text is received


Hi Everyone,

I am reblogging 9 to 5MAC article on an IOS bug that causes Messages to crash and your iPhone to reboot when a certain text is received, after one of my readers asked me for more information.

I, also recommend you, if you have an Apple product, to start following 9to5Mac. These people are really cool and are always on top of things concerning Apple products.

Shalom,
