Inspiration of Clothing: New York City has been the only major city where international styles come together and create masterpieces. It is reported that in the 1950’s & 1960’s that more than 65% of the residents residing and living in NYC were from international backgrounds (Europe, Asia, South America, etc), therefore, creating a melting pot of fashions and styles for the world to watch. It is then that the city became a Fashion Icon, creating the garment district where thousands of New Yorkers were employed to create garments in the heart of Manhattan and distribute to the world. Thanks to the countless hours these workers put in to creating this energy, NYC became the go to place to purchase or create new fashions globally. Today, many fashion designers have taken their design houses to China, where the market is filled with new talent and technology.

The True Meaning of Friendship

What is it that makes a true friend?

Happy Friendship Wallpapers HD for National Friendship Day | PixelsTalk.Net

The Japanese have a term, kenzoku, which translated literally means “family.” The connotation suggests a bond between people who’ve made a similar commitment and who possibly therefore share a similar destiny. It implies the presence of the deepest connection of friendship, of lives lived as comrades from the distant past.

Many of us have people in our lives with whom we feel the bond described by the word kenzoku. They may be family members, a mother, a brother, a daughter, a cousin. Or a friend from grammar school with whom we haven’t talked in decades. Time and distance do nothing to diminish the bond we have with these kinds of friends.

The question then arises: why do we have the kind of chemistry encapsulated by the word kenzoku with only a few people we know and not scores of others? The closer we look for the answer the more elusive it becomes. It may not in fact be possible to know, but the characteristics that define a kenzoku relationship most certainly are.

What draws people together as friends?

  1. Common interests. This probably ties us closer to our friends than many would like to admit. When our interests diverge and we can find nothing to enjoy jointly, time spent together tends to rapidly diminish. Not that we can’t still care deeply about friends with whom we no longer share common interests, but it’s probably uncommon for such friends to interact on a regular basis.
  2. History. Nothing ties people together, even people with little in common, than having gone through the same difficult experience. As the sole glue to keep friendships whole in the long run, however, it often dries, cracks, and ultimately fails.
  3. Common values. Though not necessarily enough to create a friendship, if values are too divergent, it’s difficult for a friendship to thrive.
  4. Equality. If one friend needs the support of the other on a consistent basis such that the person depended upon receives no benefit other than the opportunity to support and encourage, while the relationship may be significant and valuable, it can’t be said to define a true friendship.

What makes a friend worthy of the name?

  1. A commitment to your happiness. A true friend is consistently willing to put your happiness before your friendship. It’s said that “good advice grates on the ear,” but a true friend won’t refrain from telling you something you don’t want to hear, something that may even risk fracturing the friendship, if hearing it lies in your best interest. A true friend will not lack the mercy to correct you when you’re wrong. A true friend will confront you with your drinking problem as quickly as inform you about a malignant-looking skin lesion on your back that you can’t see yourself.
  2. Not asking you to place the friendship before your principles. A true friend won’t ask you to compromise your principles in the name of your friendship or anything else. Ever.
  3. A good influence. A true friend inspires you to live up to your best potential, not to indulge your basest drives.

Of course, we may have friends who fit all these criteria and still don’t quite feel kenzoku. There still seems to be an extra factor, an attraction similar to that which draws people together romantically, that cements friends together irrevocably, often immediately, for no reason either person can identify. But when you find these people, these kenzoku, they’re like priceless gems. They’re like finding home.

How to attract true friends

This one is easy, at least on paper: become a true friend yourself. One of my favorite quotations comes from Gandhi: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Be the friend you want to have. We all tend to attract people into our lives whose character mirrors our own. You don’t have to make yourself into what you think others would find attractive. No matter what your areas of interest, others share them somewhere. Simply make yourself a big target. Join social clubs organized around activities you enjoy. Leverage the Internet to find people of like mind. Take action.

As I thought about it, there are four people in my life I consider kenzoku. How many do you?

My book, The Undefeated Mind: On the Science of Constructing an Indestructible Self, is available now; read the sample chapter and visit Amazon or Barnes & Noble to order your copy.

SIAMO TUTTI MIGRANTI ALLA RICERCA DI UN MONDO MIGLIORE

Il Progetto “SU.PR.EME. ITALIA” – promosso anche dal nostro Comune – ha come finalità il reperimento di immobili residenziali privati da destinare alla locazione in favore di cittadini immigrati regolari in condizioni di disagio abitativo

Oggi si parla tanto di migranti e immigrazione, e ricordare la storia significa anche creare collegamenti tra il passato e il presente: la condizione in cui oggi si trovano tante persone è molto simile a quella in cui si sono ritrovati gli italiani a cavallo tra l’Ottocento e il Novecento. Stiamo parlando della “Grande Emigrazione”, che portò nove milioni di persone da nord a sud ad emigrare in America per andare alla ricerca della fortuna.

È un po’ ció che accade oggi a tutti quei migranti che intraprendono il lungo e doloroso viaggio della speranza, per andare alla ricerca di un futuro migliore per sé e le proprie famiglie.

Siamo tutti migranti alla ricerca di un mondo migliore, ed a tutti quanti noi fanno paura parole come: fame, povertà, guerra. Oggi, in tutte le società multietniche, una delle più grandi sfide é proprio quella di gestire le differenze. L’alterità non può essere eliminata o assimilata ma é necessario intraprendere le vie dell’incontro e della convivenza pacifica.  

Ancora oggi lo straniero continua ad essere associato a qualcosa di negativo e di minaccioso. Nel corso del tempo si è parlato di eliminazione, di assimilazione, di segregazione come la condizione degli ebrei che venivano ghettizzati e che nel periodo brutale del nazismo venivano considerati come entità staccate dal resto della società.

Troppo spesso si utilizza ancora il termine di integrazione quando in realtà occorre parlare di inclusione e di interculturalitá. La persona non dev’essere semplicemente integrata in una comunità, ma deve poter essere inclusa ed essere un partecipante attivo. Spesso i pregiudizi possono condizionare questo processo, generando una chiusura della persona in sé stessa perché non compresa.

I migranti arricchiscono?

É necessario partire dall’educazione sia a scuola ma soprattutto in famiglia, per cercare di diffondere un’ottica più aperta nei confronti del diverso. L’altro arricchisce la nostra vita, perché ci consente di scoprire nuove culture, religioni, lingue, tradizioni. Dobbiamo essere disposti ad aprire le frontiere del nostro cuore, perché il razzismo è un cancro silenzioso che aspetta il momento opportuno per discriminare, senza guardare in faccia nessuno.

Il rifiuto dell’altro ed anche la sua ingiusta discriminazione, è il tentativo di salvaguardare il sé e la propria identità perché ci si sente minacciati dalla diversità. Continuare a vivere in una società multietnica in cui si ha paura del diverso vuol dire non vivere. Non è con la paura, con la gerarchizzazione delle culture e la chiusura che si progredisce, ma con la valorizzazione delle unicità. Non possiamo annullare le differenze, perché queste esistono da sempre ed esisteranno sempre. La conoscenza e la curiosità sono importanti per imparare ad avere meno paura. Accettiamo le differenze e facciamo in modo che queste sussistano.

Progetto “SU.PR.EME. ITALIA”

A tal riguardo la Commissione Europea – Direzione Generale Migrazione e Affari interni ha approvato il Progetto “SU.PR.EME. ITALIA” – FAMI 2014/2020 – EMAS (Emergency Assistance) – Grant Agreement, che vede coinvolti, in partnership, Ministero del Lavoro e delle Politiche Sociali, in qualità di lead applicant in partenariato con la Regione Puglia, la Regione Basilicata, la Regione Calabria, la Regione Campania, la Regione Sicilia, l’Ispettorato Nazionale del Lavoro, l’Organizzazione internazionale per le migrazioni e il Consorzio Nova. Tale iniziativa – promossa anche dal nostro Comune – ha come finalità il reperimento di immobili residenziali privati da destinare alla locazione in favore di cittadini immigrati regolari in condizioni di disagio abitativo.

Agenzia sociale per l’abitare

E nello specifico Agenzia sociale per l’abitare è il nome del progetto nato per fronteggiare l’emergenza abitativa dei migranti regolari che vivono nelle baracche di Contrada Russo.
Nata su proposta del Comune di Taurianova, Agenzia sociale per l’abitare verrà gestita dal Consorzio Macramè di Reggio Calabria, attivo da anni sul tema dell’accoglienza nel territorio calabrese. Ha l’obiettivo di ridurre l’emarginazione sociale dei migranti regolari, di promuovere l’inclusione sociale, favorire forme di accoglienza diffusa.https://www.youtube.com/embed/dWK_a1TBNy4?feature=oembed

Scrive in una nota il sindaco Biasi con l’assessore Crea (per le pari opportunità e politiche sociali) e l’assessore Fedele (all’immigrazione): “Diventa, pertanto, essenziale collocare al centro del progetto le persone accolte, le quali non devono essere meri beneficiari passivi di interventi predisposti in loro favore, ma protagonisti attivi del proprio percorso di accoglienza e di inclusione sociale”.

Al progetto possono aderire tutti i proprietari di case sfitte e abitabili nel comune di Taurianova, disponibili a destinarle in locazione in favore di migranti regolari in condizione di disagio socio-abitativo. L’Agenzia sociale per l’abitare selezionerà le case, offrirà ai proprietari servizio di accompagnamento nella fase preliminare di stipula del contratto di affitto, individuerà i potenziali inquilini, curerà il loro inserimento abitativo. Il comune di Taurianova attiverà una serie di garanzie, voucher integrativi in favore dei proprietari e agevolazioni economiche e sociali. I proprietari potranno avere la certezza di un reddito dall’affitto, sperimentare in prima persona un progetto innovativo di accoglienza.

Come comunità noi taurianovesi potremmo dar vita a delle opportunità, a delle attività o progetti rivolti alla conoscenza di culture diverse, perché è sempre più bello conoscere nuovi orizzonti che tracciare confini. Il pittore spagnolo, Pablo Picasso diceva: “non giudicare sbagliato ció che non conosci, prendi l’occasione per comprendere”.

Hope

Why Is Hope So Important?

To have hope is to want an outcome that makes your life better in some way. It not only can help make a tough present situation more bearable but also can eventually improve our lives because envisioning a better future motivates you to take the steps to make it happen.

Whether we think about it or not, hope is a part of everyone’s life. Everyone hopes for something. It’s an inherent part of being a human being. Hope helps us define what we want in our futures and is part of the self-narrative about our lives we all have running inside our minds.

Why Acceptance Isn’t Weakness

What Is Hope, Exactly?

The definition of hope can differ depending on the person doing the talking. When people speak about hope in a spiritual context, it might mean believing good things will happen with faith in a higher power. They might direct their hopes outward in prayer.

For others, it might mean always looking on the bright side and seeing challenges as opportunities. In other words, always “hoping for the best.”

Merriam-Webster’s definition makes “hope” seem close to “wish”: “to cherish a desire with anticipation: to want something to happen or be true.”

Whatever the details, hope in general means a desire for things to change for the better, and to want that better situation very much.

Hope Is Not Optimism

Hope is not the same as optimism. An optimistic generally is more hopeful than others. On the other hand, the most pessimistic person you ever met can still be hopeful about something. Hope is very specific and focused, usually on just one issue.

Such as “I hope I get that job I interviewed for” or “I hope she calls me.” Or, for a little kid during the holidays, “I hope I get that bike I wanted!”

Why Hope Is So Vital

Most people associate hope with a dire situation. People hope to get out of difficult circumstances. That is often when people do find themselves hoping fervently! But hope also can provide the key to making everyday life better.

That’s because just envisioning something hopeful – the child seeing herself riding her new bike, for example – gives a person a moment of happiness, according to Psychology Today.  It can make present difficulties much easier to bear.

An example of that is reported by the American Psychology Association. Children who grew up in poverty but had success later in life all had one thing in common – hope. Dr. Valerie Maholmes, who worked on the research, said hope involves “planning and motivation and determination” to get what one hopes for.

What is a Respite House?

Deeper Meaning

In a way, having hope links your past and present to the future. You have a vision for what you hope will happen. Whether it does not, just envisioning it can make you feel better. And if it’s something you can somewhat control – like the kids working to get out of poverty – then hope can motivate you to take whatever steps you need to take.

Dr. Neel Burton, a book author who writes about emotions, writes that he always asks patients for what they hope for, because if they say “nothing” then that is a sign of depression or worse.

Having hope is important to the very act of being a human being. As Dr. Judith Rich writes, “Hope is a match in a dark tunnel, a moment of light, just enough to reveal the path ahead and ultimately the way out.”
