    Who Am I ???

    About meWelcome and Thank you for visiting.

    BGTV Media Online blog features the truth of what is going on in our world today. Regular people with regular lives and their experiences with life. This blog features videos that I feel will be helpful in Education of the outside world and the struggles we face as humans to survive. Some videos will be for entertainment as well.

    I find that people in different countries and cultures are just the same as me and you. I really didn’t feel that way until I moved to California in 2003 and started meeting people from all walks of the world.

    Being a southern small town girl from the east coast so used to dealing mainly with only two races(black and white), I was really fascinated when I arrived in California.

    The hot weather and the smell of different exotic foods in the air immediately drew me to love this place. Besides that now I felt free to be myself and live my life.

    Over the years I have met (OMG) I can’t even begin to count how many people, but many became work associates and some good friends.

    Getting to know people and their cultures I began to understand that we all are the same. We all breathe the air and have to attend to everyday life situations that may come our way.

    Modeling was one of my professions and in doing that I have come to understand the true beauty of a person on the inside and out. I understand that it’s not what’s on the outside that is true beauty, but what’s on the inside as beauty is skin deep, but ugly is too the bone. Honestly I hate stuck up people and folks who think they are all that. After going through many challenges in my life, I understand human nature and think and understand the concepts of life and human beings well. This in the long run have taught me how to associate with people as an individual as well as a group.

    Now I have made it my business to spread the word and the truth about so many unfortunate people and the disasters that strike their lives.

San Diego-based food manufacturer Bumble Bee and two of the company’s managers were charged with violating safety regulations after a worker was cooked to death in a pressure cooker in 2012.

Jose Melena, aged 62, was doing maintenance work in a 35 foot long pressure cooker at Bumble Bee Foods’ Santa Fe Springs plant before dawn on October 11, 2012.

Assuming Melena was in the bathroom, another worker turned on the cooker after filling it with 12,000 pounds of tuna. The temperature reached 270 degrees.

After realizing Melena was missing, a supervisor asked workers to look for Melena through an intercom announcement. Workers also searched the parking lot.

Melena’s body was found in the cooker after it was turned off.

Bumble Bee Foods is facing a minimum6 fine of $1.5 million. If convicted of all charges, the two managers could receive maximum sentences of three years in prison.

Petition · California Governor Jerry Brown, California Water Resources Control Board: Ban Nestlé Corporation from Bottling California’s Last Remaining Water · Change.org

Petitioning California Governor Jerry Brown

Ban Nestlé Corporation from bottling California’s remaining water

Petition by Nick Rodman

California

Supporters

I live in California, where a terrible drought is stretching into its fourth year, and conditions are getting worse. Farms lie empty and dry, and entire towns have run out of water. Some Californians are even being asked to only shower every few days and “not flush for everything.”  

Meanwhile, the bottled-water company Nestlé is taking hundreds of millions of gallons of California’s water, and they either sell it back to Californians for more than ten-thousand times as much as they pay for it, or ship it out of the state.

In Sacramento, for instance, Nestle pays just $186 dollars for a quarter-million gallons of water, and then they then turn around and sell it for $2.1 million. That’s a markup of more than a million percent on water being taken from one of the most drought-stricken regions of the state.

We Californians are doing everything we can to save water. This Swiss company shouldn’t be coming in and profiteering. Tell the California government that Nestlé should not be raking in profits by bottling California’s last remaining water.

After four years of crippling drought, NASA scientists say that California has only one year of water left. How does NASA know? Because California is so dry that the state actually weighs less than it used to, and NASA can sense the reduction in the Earth’s gravity from space.

Join me in calling on Governor Jerry Brown and the California Water Resources Control Board to immediately ban Nestlé’s bottling operations in California.

Crazy Cali~a mother and her 12yr old son SHOT after chuckling at stranger on the street

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-10

A 44-year-old woman fatally shot by a gunman who opened fire in front of her 12-year-old son apparently was unknown to the shooter, only having laughed at him when driving by just prior to her death, authorities said Thursday. Denise Chiffon Berry, 44, was killed in a Hawthorne shooting April 1, 2015. (Credit: DMV) The woman had stopped beside a police officer to say she thought she was being followed when the gunman got out of a Cadillac and fired into her Mercedes-Benz, striking her and her son, in Hawthorne Wednesday afternoon.  The officer returned fire, killing the shooter. lovelyti2013

After Warmest Winter, Drought-Stricken California Limits Water But Exempts Thirstiest Big Growers

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-04-06

As California’s record drought continues, Gov. Jerry Brown has ordered residents and non-agricultural businesses to cut water use by 25 percent in the first mandatory statewide reduction in the state’s history. One group not facing restrictions under the new rules is big agriculture, which uses about 80 percent of California’s water. The group Food & Water Watch California has criticized Brown for not capping water usage by oil extraction industries and corporate farms, which grow water-intensive crops such as almonds and pistachios, most of which are exported out of state and overseas. Studies show the current drought, which has intensified over the past four years, is the worst California has seen in at least 120 years. Some suggest it is the region’s worst drought in more than a thousand years. This comes after California witnessed the warmest winter on record. We speak with environmental reporter Mark Hertsgaard, author of the book, “Hot: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth.” Democracy Now!

“Massive explosion at ExxonMobil oil refinery injures four and causes gas leak

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2015-02-19

 An explosion at an ExxonMobil refinery in Torrance, California caused a gas leak and small fire at the gasoline processing unit shortly before 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday. Four workers were injured and the explosion shattered the windows of surrounding buildings. The California Department of Industrial Relations has opened an investigation into the explosion to determine the cause of the blast. Until then, ExxonMobil is not allowed to operate the refinery’s fluid catalytic cracking unit. According to Oil Price Information Service, a trade publication, an unidentified source reports that the refinery’s electrostatic participator exploded as workers were doing maintenance on the fluid catalytic cracking unit next to it. A small ground fire was ignited after the explosion, but was quickly extinguished by firefighters. A gasoline leak also prompted the refinery to activate the flare towers in order to burn off fuel. The towers shot flames hundreds of feet into the air while creating extremely black smoke. The explosion caused the ground to shake so hard that a nearby seismometer at Caltech registered the explosion as a 1.7-magnitude earthquake. Torrance Mayor Patrick Furey has suggested that nearby residents stay indoors, turn off their air conditioners and keep the windows closed.

California is in the middle of the worst drought it’s seen in nearly 500 years. We’re heading out to the driest towns to see just how screwed we really are and what people are doing to carry on.

PBS NewsHour

Students take a stand to topple teacher tenureA 2012 legal case brought by nine public school students in California, who argued the state’s teacher tenure laws denied their right to a quality education, ended a few months ago after a judge declared the laws unconstitutional. Shortly after the ruling, legal action regarding teacher tenure laws began in another state, with parents in New York filing a similar lawsuit.

California river running dry

Posted by bgtvmediaonline on 2014-10-23

Al Jazeera English

When you think of the world’s great rivers, you’ll probably think of the likes of the Nile or the Amazon. And in north America, the mighty Mississippi. But on the other side of the US, another great river, the San Joaquin is in a much more precarious position. It’s America’s most endangered river, with farmers blamed for causing the crisis. Al Jazeera’s Jennifer London reports along the San Joaquin River.

September 21, 2014

A lahar mud flow occurred from the Southeast flank of Mt. Shasta in Northern California.

The professionals are vexed at the moment, however I have a suspicion that some will soon realize this is related to volcanic / seismic activity in the region.
