Defining Your Own Road to Freedom

Just a few destinations shy of her 100-country goal before turning 40, Davita McKelvey slowed down to talked to EBONY. As a wife, part owner of the travel magazine Griots Republic and all around Black girl magic, McKelvey discusses the beauty of traveling buy canada goose jacket cheap and doing this thing called life on Canada Goose online her own terms. EBONY: Before we get started, I just want to say congratulations on almost completing your goal of traveling to 100 different countries! That’s no small task. What number are you up to?DM: 92.EBONY: Did you start off saying, "I want to visit 100 countries or did the number expand as you traveled?"DM: When I turned 33 I completed my Master’s program, left my corporate job and decided to embark on 33 countries to celebrate. When I returned—almost a year later—I tried to go back buy canada goose jacket to my regular life and canada goose nothing fit anymore. I even tried to return to the cheap Canada Goose corporate world and it was torture. I stayed for as long as I had to. A friend helped me get canada goose outlet that job, so I stayed long enough to ensure that she didn’t look bad (and received her bonus for referring me). After that I just couldn’t stay. I started planning my next trip.EBONY: What was it about your first canada goose clearance trip that made your former life “not fit” anymore?DM: In general, people want to be free. You want to chase your bliss without worrying about the consequences. If you have a business, you want to run it the way you want to without the pressure of having to make money to survive. When I was traveling, I found something that just spoke to me in that way. I was exploring. I met new people. Ate new food. I had no pressure. I was just HAPPY. I ate whatever I wanted and still lost 50 lbs. because everything was done with no pressure—just walking around and Canada Goose Online exploring. Do you understand that kind of happiness and freedom? When I got back home, it felt like trying to fit a circle into a square peg. I had already been [exposed] to so many other experiences and countries and people. I canada goose store simply couldn’t go back to who I was. It just so happened that when I came home we (my husband and I) were in a place where we could move some things around and change our lifestyle to make it happen. And we did.EBONY: I’m sure that was unexpected. But when you planned a solo trip to visit 33 different countries, how did you imagine life to be different when you came home? And why THIS type of trip? Some people are like, "Hey, I’m turning 33. I’m having a brunch. Bottomless mimosas all around." THIS was different.DM: I know this may sound naive, but it’s something that I always wanted to Canada Goose Coats On Sale do and I thought I would get it out of my system. I figured I would take about a year, go Canada Goose sale travel the world, write about it and come back home. But that wasn’t the case. I couldn’t get on with “regular life”…I needed to LIVE. So since 2011 that’s what I have been doing. Just chasing my bliss and defining my own idea of what freedom looks like for me.EBONY: Before you left did you know anybody who did this? Was there anybody that helped you with planning or how to navigate your emotions upon your return?DM: No. I didn’t have anyone that could help me with the logistics, or someone to help me navigate my emotions once I returned. When I took my first trip in 2011, I didn’t know about any of the Black travel groups. I was just out there making it happen. Since then, I returned and left several times for months at a time. 92 countries in and now I can look back and laugh at how naive I was. One time I randomly canadian goose jacket ended up in the hood in India. But these things make for richer experiences.EBONY: What are the differences in the way you prepared for your first trip vs each trip that followed? Emotionally, and financially etc., how did you prepare and how did it change in time?DM: canada goose deals The first time I did A LOT of prep. I used spread sheets that listed the cost of each flight to the different countries, how much I should expect to pay for food, where I would stay, what I would do, how I would write about Canada Goose Jackets each city, my budget etc. The spreadsheet was so detailed. It was just ridiculous. I had bags full of just everything. Now, I literally just show up at an airport with a canada https://www.canada-gooseoutlets.ca goose coats on sale backpack. I don’t do any of that other stuff.EBONY: What changed?DM: Now it just becomes life. It’s like when you go visit your mom that lives in another state. You don’t pack a bunch of stuff; you sort of just canada goose coats go. It’s such a natural part of life now. I’m so used to canada goose black friday sale being on a plane. I’m not vacationing, I’m just living. And since I’m just living and not actually on vacation, I walk around looking like my ‘I’m at home self." Which is why I get embarrassed when I’m in another country and I see other Black folks. Most of the time I look a mess. canada goose clearance sale The natives don’t really know what my hair is supposed to look like, but my sisters…they KNOW. Sometimes they give me the, “ Girl you know better" look. Sometimes I deserve it. At times I just look absolutely homeless. But again, I’m just living, not really vacationing.EBONY: It’s interesting that you keep stating how much this is just part of your life. To be away on solo trips is just the norm now. When you got married was this always part of the plan?DM: We planned to travel frequently together. He wanted to be a photographer and work for National Geographic. But when you’re married, sometimes things change and people change and your dreams change. For him the idea canada goose replica of freedom started to look like owning his own business. He wanted to be free to build his business the way he wanted. That’s why he started Kindred Films. His dream changed. I’m Canada Goose Parka not gonna lie. We definitely had seasons where it became difficult. When you start to change, just as people within in a marriage, things can get hard. But we are at the point in our marriage where he recognizes the things that I need to do that make me happy and I recognize the things he needs to do that make him happy. For me “newness” makes me happy. I like to experience new things, and I am able to experience this within my marriage via travel. For him he experiences “newness” and freedom by growing his business, getting new clients and taking on a new projects. But we are still a team.EBONY: What is one thing you could share with our readers that you learned while traveling to almost 100 countries?DM: Canada Goose Outlet Never let fear stop you. Figure out what freedom looks like for you. Once you figured it out, go out and create it…on your own terms. Shanita Hubbard is a mom, writer, traveler, speaker and social justice advocate.

The Politics cheap Canada Goose of Preserving Black Historical Canada Goose sale Sites

Joe Frazier's Gym in Philadelphia Ben Leech A discount furniture store now occupies the space where boxing legend, Joe canada goose outlet Frazier trained in Philadelphia. The home of America’s first female self-made Canada Goose Outlet millionaire, Madame C.J. Walker is left vulnerable to potential destruction without proper legal protection. Vandalism and canada goose coats on sale physical deterioration now marks the Hinchliffe Stadium where Negro League baseball thrived. But Brent Leggs, Senior Field Officer for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is determined to return these sites to their former glory.For Leggs, it is obvious that these canada goose black friday sale sites are significant parts of African-American cultural history. But canada goose deals he is also aware that the general public may need some convincing on why historical preservation matters. This is especially true for numerous sites that go unrecognized or are no longer active canada goose coats in underserved communities, where they are often abandoned.“We are constantly asking, what is the higher purpose for what we do? How can preservation help to improve conditions in a blighted and predominantly diverse community? We know that our responsibility is not just to save buildings but also to save lives,” he said. “These sites should be anchors with a social justice component that addresses contemporary issues.”To that effect, Leggs’ vision for Joe Frazier’s Gym includes a cultural and educational center that pays tribute to Frazier’s legacy in the local community as a father figure to many. Furthermore the center may include a health and wellness component canada goose store inspired by the athleticism of its namesake.What about the impact of gentrification?In numerous U.S. cities gentrification canadian goose jacket remains controversial with one of its hotly debated issues being the demolition of historic sites for the creation of canada goose replica commercial or residential property. In 2013, graffiti mecca, 5 Pointz, was whitewashed to create luxury condos. According to Leggs such occurrences that take place to smaller, less publicized sites could be avoided with developers becoming educated on the value of preservation and tax incentives.“Many sites Canada Goose Jackets of diversity are places that on the outside don’t appear to hold historical significance. Thus developers buy canada goose jacket cheap and investors that come in can easily consider the demolition of these historic places because they don’t understand the value. The thing Canada Goose online is making sure we have identified places worthy of being preserved,” he advised.Such recognition involves getting sites listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Since such properties qualify for federal Canada Goose Parka tax credits that can be applied to rehabilitation construction costs, the credential incentivizes investors and developers to preserve historic Canada Goose Online sites.Beyond getting such places recognized on a federal level, Leggs advocates for sites becoming financially secure through buy canada goose jacket the development of a strong business model.“The real challenge has been in the proper preservation planning to identify financially sustainable redevelopment strategies. With the big issue being funding we have to create a new paradigm to have sites consider being a https://www.gestiontb.ca for-profit business and canada goose think about financial sustainability.”More awareness equals more fundingCurrently Leggs is working with a team to develop plans for Madame C.J. Walker’s Villa Lewaro estate. Their goal is to generate ideas that Canada Goose Coats On Sale includes considering revenue potential and establishing Walker’s site as a cultural attraction that doesn’t rely solely on the house museum model. To aid in that goal, Toyota recently presented $10,000 to the National Trust for Historic Preservation at the 2014 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Convention & Career Fair in Boston. The location of the announcement at NABJ was strategic as the organization seeks to attract more media awareness for greater support and ultimately, more funding.In 2011, the organization received an anonymous $50,000 donation canada goose clearance and free architectural canada goose clearance sale services to protect jazz legend, John Coltrane’s home in Dix Hills, NY (where we wrote the classic ‘A Love Supreme’). Leggs credits this support to media interest that derived from the home’s inclusion in the organization’s annual listing of ‘America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places.’“The media has been an effective tool to reach the audience. Once people are aware of the issue they generally take action to support our efforts.”The weekly column, On the “A” w/Souleo, covers the intersection of the arts, culture entertainment and philanthropy in Harlem and beyond and is written by Souleo, founder and president of event/media content production company, Souleo Enterprises, LLC.

wayward emperor penguin found in New Zealand

WELLINGTON, New Zealand cheap Canada Goose He needed a little push before speeding backward down a makeshift slide. canada goose Once in the water, he popped his head canada goose clearance up for one last look. And then he was gone. The wayward canada goose store emperor penguin known as “Happy Feet” was back home in forcanadagoose Antarctic canada goose factory sale waters after an canada goose clearance sale extended Canada Goose Parka sojourn spent canada goose uk outlet capturing hearts in New Zealand.

Happy Feet was released Sunday into the ocean south of New Zealand, Canada Goose online more than two months after he came ashore on a beach nearly 2,000 miles (3,000 kilometers) from home and became an instant celebrity.

Speaking Canada Goose Coats On Sale from a satellite phone aboard the research vessel Tangaroa, Wellington Zoo veterinarian Lisa Argilla said Canada Goose Outlet Happy Feet release went remarkably smoothly given that the boat was being tossed about in 25 foot (8 meter) swells in the unforgiving Antarctic ocean.

Argilla said crew members from the boat carried the canadian goose jacket penguin inside his canada goose uk black friday custom built crate to the stern of the ship for his final send off about 50 nautical miles (90 kilometers) north of remote Campbell Island. The crew had already cut the engines and put in place a canvas slide that they soaked with water from a hose.

But when they opened the buy canada goose jacket door of the crate, the penguin showed no interest in leaving.

“I needed to give him a little a tap on his back,” Argilla said.

The penguin slipped down the slide on his stomach, bottom first, she said. He resurfaced about 6 feet (2 meters) from the boat, took a look up at the people aboard, and then disappeared canada goose outlet beneath Canada Goose Jackets the Canada Goose Online surface.

“I was really canada goose uk shop happy to see him go,” Argilla said. “The best part of my job canada goose coats is when you get to release animals buy canada goose jacket cheap back into the wild where they are supposed to be.”

The 3 foot tall (meter tall) aquatic bird was found canada goose coats on sale June 20 on Peka Peka Beach, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) northwest of New Zealand capital, Wellington. It had been 44 uk canada goose years since an canada goose black friday sale emperor penguin was last spotted in the wild in New Zealand. But it soon became clear the bird condition was deteriorating, as he scooped up beaks full of sand and swallowed, likely mistaking it for snow, which emperor penguins eat for its moisture when in Antarctica.

At the zoo, the Canada Goose sale 3 1/2 year old bird underwent numerous stomach flushing procedures to remove sand from his digestive system. He was given a makeshift home in a room that zoo staff kept uk canada goose outlet filled with a bed of ice so he wouldn overheat.

A local television station, TV3, set up a webcam and streamed images of the bird around the clock. Soon, Happy Feet had a quarter million followers.

And, perhaps befitting of a bird from the Internet age, those followers will be able to keep track of him for a while longer. Happy Feet has been fitted with a GPS tracker, and his movements will be posted online. Argilla expects the tracker to fall off the next time the bird molts.

Argilla said the final boat journey, which began last Monday and ran into terrible weather, was difficult for her she got seasick and the crew. The one who seemed least cheap canada goose uk bothered, she said, was Happy Feet, who rolled with the swells, slept standing up and took nips at the crew when they fed him fresh fish.

US federal agency to switch to iPhone

Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency Canada Goose Outlet (ICE) said it will end its contract with BlackBerry maker Research In canada goose factory sale Motion Ltd in favor of Apple Inc iPhone, dealing a new blow to RIM just months before it launches a vital new device.

The agency said in a solicitation document posted last week that it intends to buy iPhones for more than 17,600 employees a purchase worth $2.1 million.

The agency said it has relied on RIM for eight years, but the company no longer meet the mobile technology needs of the agency.

It also said it analyzed Apple iOS based devices and Google Inc Android operating system and concluded that, for the near term, Apple iPhone services offer the best technology for the canada goose coats on sale agency because of Apple tight controls of the hardware platform and operating system.

The agency said the iPhone will be used by a of agency personnel, including, but uk canada goose outlet not limited to, canada goose Homeland Security uk canada goose Investigations, Enforcement and Removal Operations and Office of the Principal Legal Advisor employees.

iPhone services will allow these individuals to leverage reliable, mobile technology on a secure and manageable cheap Canada Goose platform in furtherance of the agency mission.

Last week, consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton canadian goose jacket said it was dropping BlackBerry and switching to iPhone and Canada Goose online Android smartphones for its staff of around 25,000.

Analysts said that other canada goose outlet businesses and agencies are jacketstock canada goose clearance sale likely to follow suit especially in Canada Goose Coats On Sale light of demand for other smartphones.

going to see this happen more and more, said Ed Snyder, an analyst Canada Goose Parka at Charter Equity Research.

RIM has high hopes that canada goose uk black friday its new BB10 smartphone, expected to in early 2013, will canada goose store compete with iPhones and Android canada goose black friday sale phones. The BB10 will come equipped with a revamped operating system and is aimed at putting an end to a precipitous decline in RIM market share over the past year and longer.

The challenges of counting a

Slavery still exists. Of that there isn’t much dispute, if any. But how widespread is what many experts canada goose store call modern day slavery?

Estimates range from about 10 million to 30 million, according Canada Goose online to policymakers, activists, Canada Goose Outlet journalists and scholars.

The International Labour Organization, canada goose outlet toronto factory an agency of the United Nations that focuses on, among other things, labor rights, put canada goose black friday sale the number at a “minimum estimate” of 12.3 million in a 2005 report.

There is yet another estimate. That number was current as of the end of 2006, he said.

There are several canada goose clearance sale reasons behind the variance in numbers, said Ben Skinner, who published a book goosesale about modern day slavery “A Crime So Monstrous: Face to Face with Modern day Slavery.”

“There Canada Goose sale are two big problems with the count,” Skinner, a Senior Fellow at the Schuster Institute for Investigative Journalism at Brandeis University, said during a telephone interview. “The first is that the people we are counting are, by definition, a hidden population.

“The second problem is more of a theoretical one where the definitions are not in place. We don’t have a common definition still as to what slavery is.”

Slave labor has been a part of civilization for much of history. It was practiced openly and its legality canadian goose jacket wasn’t much of a question. During the height of the trans Atlantic slave trade, its scale was carefully documented.

Today, slavery is illegal Canada Goose Parka in every country.

Skinner recounted a conversation he had with John Miller the former State Department ambassador at large on modern slavery from 2002 through 2006 during the George W. Bush administration about the 2018 canada goose outlet inherent difficulty of Canada Goose Online counting a population that is difficult to find.

“These are not people that stand in line, raise their hands and wait for the census to be taken,” Miller told Skinner.

And, even when found, they may not want to be identified, Skinner said. “They are victims of a crime and that is still oftentimes missed as a crime,” he said.

The enslaved may be involved in Canada Goose Coats On Sale prostitution or might be in a country illegally as a result of trafficking activities that could land them in trouble with the law. So, they’d rather keep quiet about their condition, Skinner said.

“They are individuals who will be seen as perpetrators of a crime against the state rather than victims of a crime against humanity,” he said. “They are aware of that so they don’t self linked website identify.”

It also isn’t the easiest thing for observers to get data from countries about how canada goose coats big of a problem slavery is within their borders.

For example, South Asian countries buy canada goose jacket will acknowledge problems with sex trafficking because of a perception that it’s not just a South Asian Canada Goose Jackets issue, Skinner said, echoing a theory from John Miller.

However, they may not be as forthcoming about their problems with debt bondage when someone canada goose deals has to pay off canada goose outlet store locations a loan through work and may be trapped in the situation because the amount earned is too little to pay cheap Canada Goose off the amount of money borrowed.

“There’s a self perception that debt bondage is a rather embarrassing part of the continuing underdevelopment in parts of their countries,” Skinner said.

Before you can canada goose count something, you have to define it, and a broadly accepted definition of what modern slavery encompasses canada goose clearance has been elusive. State Department, “human trafficking” describes “activities involved when one person obtains or holds another person in compelled service.”

The State Department buy canada goose jacket cheap says the term includes sex trafficking, forced labor and bonded labor. It also includes, among other things, the use of child soldiers and forced child labor.

The terms and their meanings seem straightforward, but the divisions come to light when legislators try to reconcile the definitions with their country’s situation.

“Within the trafficking community, there really isn’t a consensus on what slavery means,” Skinner said. “That’s harmful, that’s detrimental.”

The biggest consequence canada goose replica of incorrect data, not knowing the full scope of the problem or where it’s concentrated can lead to poor decisions on canada goose coats on sale where to focus resources and how best to solve the problem, Skinner said.

“Slavery, on its face, is monstrous,” he said. “I think it’s important to be motivated by emotion but to, very quickly, come to the point of getting to the cold, hard business of figuring how best to free as many slaves as possible.

A Opera Royal do Castelo de Versailles, verdadeira joia arquitetural, foi inaugurada em 1770 para o casamento de Louis XVI e Marie Antoinette.

A Opera de Versailles será a primeira sala elíptica da França. Seu arquiteto, Ange Jacques Gabriel, influenciado pela arquitetura italiana e pela melhor qualidade acústica das salas ovais ou redondas quebrou a tradição francesa de salas de teatro retangulares.

A Opera Royal não funciona todos os dias. Apesar de ter sido restaurada recentemente ela continua uma obra frágil e acolhe o público em algumas datas determinadas.

Sugestão de programa: antes ou após o espetáculo da Opera Royal, tome um drink no bar do Hotel Trianon de Versailles. Belo hotel pertinho do castelo.
