My father told me we was all born of blood and tribulation. So then too, was our great city.


Riad Star - Marrakech, Morocco

The former residence of Josephine Baker, Riad Star in Marrakech Medina is an intimate boutique hotel with tastefully designed interiors, exquisite spa services and a glorious rooftop terrace overlooking the city. All 7 individually themed rooms are romantically decorated with rich furnishings and ingenious designer details. While some units feature intricate Moroccan aesthetics, others evoke the Jazz age or the glamour of Paris. A well-equipped roof terrace with fireplace along with a quintessential riad courtyard with pool and a charming “Bhou” style living room complement the hotel’s public spaces.


Word of the day: 聪明一世,糊涂一时 (Chinese)




when youre trying to get somewhere but the person in front of you is walking extremely slow


❝ As the Secretary General of the United Nations, an organization of 147 member states who represent almost all of the human inhabitants of the planet Earth, I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system into the universe seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if we are fortunate. We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants are but a small part of the immense universes that surrounds us and it is with humility and hope that we take this step. ❞

WARNING: Some knew about the red light on cars, but not Dialing 112.
An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren’s parents have always told her to never pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called, 112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren’t, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way. 

Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.
I never knew about the 112 Cell Phone feature. I tried it on my AT&T phone & it said, “Dialing Emergency Number.”
Especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going on to a safe place.

*Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that 112 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it’s your turn to let your friends know about “Dialing, 112”

You may want to send this to every Man, Woman & Youngster you know; it may well save a life. 

This applies to ALL 50 states

Works in Canada too guys, just tried it!

Reblogging for anyone of the feminine preference that follow me. (Or for general knowledge.)

Hate to mythbust this one, but it’s not true. 112 isn’t an emergency number in the US, though you may get lucky in some parts of the country. Citizens in the EU are more likely to get through to an emergency contact, since it’s part of a global emergency network implemented in European countries.
Snopes write this one up here: http://www.snopes.com/crime/warnings/fakecop.asp

Law enforcement officers recommend dialing 911, the quickest way to get through to police and dispatch.

The Godfather (1972) - dir. Francis Ford Coppola (requested by anonymous)

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
