There are over 70 documented cases of transplant patients experiencing the same thoughts and feelings as their organ donors did in life. People report everything from craving the donors’ favorite foods, to inheriting their talents. It’s posed a theory that the cells in our body can store memories. Source

Images of Dr. Kenneth Kaunda’s visit to the US in 1960.
Dr. Kenneth Kaunda visited places such as Washington, DC and Atlanta with Dr. Martin Luther King. Together they made a joint statement against US investment in apartheid South Africa. Kaunda was then the former leader of the United National Independence Party which later led Zambia to independence.

Very interesting excerpt on Kaunda’s early 1960s visits to the US and Britain here.
Twitter reacts to the Michael Dunn sentence today. Dunn was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

Still can’t believe Columbus Day is still a thing. People are ignorant morons.
Yesterday I attended a protest against Columbus Day in Los Angeles. The rally started on Olvera Street across the way from Union Station then to the cathedral in downtown L.A. We stood in front of the church for a half an hour, preaching of what obscenities the church allowed against the indigenous people of the Americas. The church was also built on sacred land.
While we were there, there was a group of white people staring at us as we protested on the other side of the street. A little whitey mocked us while the ignorant white girls sneered. An old white man we nicknamed Skip shouted “Boo!” while our words were said through the microphone of the injustice the church brought upon 100 million people.
Later, we marched with our signs held high to the Columbus statue in Grand Park of downtown L.A. It was set there in the park in 1976 (first picture of the set), the plaque stating the Columbus discovered America and is a “legend among immortals”. We returned to Olvera street where there were dancers celebrating the indigenous people that were once here.
It was hot but it was worth marching for this—to change Columbus Day just as Seattle has done. There should be no holiday marking a terrorist and murderer.
Happy Indigenous Day!
