Join The People’s Record: A Collective Info-Activism Project
This project is aimed at providing information and news pertinent to activism, capitalism (and the philosophies that oppose it), the police-state, imperialism, civil liberties, social justice, colonialism and systemic societal problems. We’re gathering a group of interested parties and are actively working toward growing this project into something much larger than its current incarnation.
In January, we had our one-year project anniversary. By the end of our second year we’d like to have:
- Several topically-focused columns written from a regular columnists who write semi-regularly: anti-austerity, environmental justice, LGBTQ, student movements, indigenous struggles, racial justice & beyond.
- A team of active enthusiastic graphic-image creators and Facebook page managers.
- At least one person on Twitter posting breaking news & blog posts.
- At least one regularly recurring political podcast or vlog.
We believe that large-scale movements that target sources of systemic-oppression (in the vein of Occupy & many other movements) need to be supported, covered, understood, thought about, and discussed. We believe that we have the best chance of breaking into the cultural ethos when we work together – sharing information, promoting events, movements and ideas in a coordinated and strategic way.
We don’t think people digest information in only one way or through only one medium, but rather that people learn from exposure to multiple mediums, in innumerable ways. We know that info-activists sharing their perspective about systemic problems have the capacity to reach a variety of audiences, resonating with different but often-overlapping groups of people and we believe that by growing this project we will be able to qualitatively improve the perspective represented by The People’s Record and also quantitatively increase our audience.
This isn’t intended to be antagonistic or mean-spirited, but our perspective is not in-line with an anarcho-capitalist or libertarian perspective. Although we appreciate the ally in opposing state violence and oppression, disappearing civil liberties, drone strikes, and fighting for freedom of information, etc., we also could not justify leaving space in our project for an ideology that allows for unchecked, rampant oppression and one that celebrates, rather than criticizes the destructive force of capitalism. We know that capitalism is problematic and this is central to the world-view we hope to inject into the cultural ethos with this project.
We aren’t looking for experts (necessarily, although if you are an expert and want to join this project, great), but rather for passionate people who understand the potential of using the tools available to us (because of increased connectivity to information and each other through the internet) to contribute as best we can to the conversations & debates essential to shaping our future global culture.
If that’s you, and you think you could contribute in one of the above mentioned ways (or another way that you’ve thought of not-mentioned) or if you just want to learn more about the project, email us @: firstname.lastname@example.org
If it won’t cramp your blog’s style and you appreciate what we’re trying to do, please reblog to help us reach more people.

Don't ever hesitate. Reblog this. TUMBLR RULE. When you see it, REBLOG IT.
Is it Gym time? Great!
Be sure to have a plan when you get there. One of the biggest problems of someone who’s winging it is that they don’t see any results and therefore more likely to quit.
For those who cannot afford a personal trainer that’s where the Internet will come in handy.
I know of 2 sites that can help you with exercise/nutrition plans, for free.
1 - http://www.bodbot.com/
You register and it generates workouts based on your goal. You can even choose which days you want to workout and replace exercises.
Apparently it also can generate nutrition plans but I couldn’t find that section, maybe one has to pay for that.
It also has got an app for your phone so you can check your plan while at the gym.
2 - http://www.bodybuilding.com/guides/
I know what you’re thinking “But this is a bodybuilding site!” Bear with me, they have weight loss programs for women too.
Scroll down that page until you see the following image. Then chose your sex, then your goal and your age.
You’ll get to a page with at least 5 different programs. Have a look through them and see if any of them is for you.
They’ve got Nutrition, exercise and motivation sections.
One heads up though, those are free so they’ll try to make money by selling you supplements. I would just ignore those for the time being.
Just be sure to take at least a multivitamin pill – the supermarket own branded ones will do
All the information on the plans might be overwhelming or confusing. Don’t worry, after you’ve decided on a plan just read it through, print it out and post it on the wall. As you start doing it and get in the routine it will became second nature. No one was born knowing it.
Here is a trick to keep you getting back to the gym: MUSIC, but not just any music.
If you chose music that makes you happy, that reminds you of good moments and keeps you upbeat then your brain will associate the gym with ‘good times’.
Try to stick regularly with the gym (and nutrition – as best as you can) for 90 days. Research shows if you do something regularly for 90 days it will likely turn into a habit.
Set your goals long term and judge your progress by how you look (not how much you weight).
I would also advise you to share it only with your supportive friends.
The Tumblr crowd can be knobs some times. And this is an area where you’ll need supportive people – well, like most areas of our lives.
‘Cheer-e-oh’ babes, and godspeed :)
P.S.: copy this page to your computer and let me know when I can take it down.

Please watch this : )
If you’re Atheist or Agnostic please know that he talks about God because he is trying to reach the majority of people - who follow or believe in a religion. What he talks about, his message, is actually beyond that.
I’d encourage you to listen a bit more on what he has to say. Youtube is a great place to start, has it has both short, medium and long clips - which is great as you can choose the ones suited to your mood or the time you have available.
That shit you reblog, I like that shit.
