Being Alone, Energy, and Memes: DID YOU KNOW? G: STANDUP9 1I Queen Elizabeth owns 1/6th of all the land on Earth. She coulo end world hunger and poverty I0 times over and still have a fortune. Her land alone is worth over $30 trillion. Instead of benefitting the planet, she and her minions plot to enslave us with the New World Order. Many forecast that the entities manipulating humanity are seriously running out of time as human consciousness is growing rapidly Most people are taking about celebrities, athletes, actors and musicians donating more money but no one ever brings up the most wealthy of people who no doubt it made they money off unethical practices and many of times their heritage can directly related to mass genocides that took place. We gotta stop fighting and bickering about the umbrella effect and start getting go core issues. It’s ten times harder and even more dangerous but the rewards of creating a better society for all that inhabit it and those who soon will. The fact is that our energy should be aimed at the very top of the 1%. Those who profit trillions, and who’s Fortunes could change entire continents let alone possibly the entire world. If you think asking for a society that uses alternative energy, higher quality materials, and easier more compassionate way of living is extreme, utopia, or something that’s not fathomable BUT have no problem that in our reality we have people that have enough resources to change history is ok then something is seriously wrong with your perception. standup911 - Follow @_standup911 backup page & @_meetingoftheminds - events

America, Black History Month, and Chicago: <p>Black history month day 11: Ragtime composer Scott Joplin.</p> <p>Stock Joplin was born just three years after the end of the Civil War in 1868, to a former slave man and freeborn black woman. His father worked as a laborer for the railroad and his mother was a maid. When not working, his father liked to play the violin for plantation parties in North Carolina while his mother sang and played the banjo. Joplin was given a rudimentary musical education by his family and from the age of seven he was allowed to play the piano while his mother cleaned.</p> <p>Joplin was ambitious about learning piano, often practicing after school. He was tutored for a while by German Jew who had emigrated to America. This teacher taught him folk, classical, and opera music, encouraging him to recognize music as an art form. Joplin never forgot the man’s kindness and sent the ill and aging man a gift of money once he had become successful.</p> <p>Jump and did some work as a real way labor but decided to abandon this in pursuit of a musical career. He soon realized that there were not a lot of opportunities for black musicians, churches and brothels being the primary places he could play piano. But he saw some minor success at the Chicago world‘s fair and went on to published several significantly popular ragtime pieces.</p> <p>He composed an opera and move to New York to get it published, unfortunately art music was a field largely closed off the African-Americans. He did not get to see the opera have any success in his lifetime, although it was successfully staged in the 1970s.</p>
