Book to Film: 365 DNI Streaming on Netflix [Trailer]







The blazing hot film, 365 DNI (365 Days,) is taking Netflix viewers and social media by storm. The film is based on the first installment of a book trilogy by Blanka Lipinska.

The polish film is causing quite a stir.

While the film has some scorching love scenes, it's amped up fully loaded, by the fact that actor Michele Morrone graces the screen with his presence. That man is walking sin. He's a delicious looking specimen.

His face, his mouth, what he does with his mouth, his swag, his temper, his impressive package, his neck grabs...

Chile...

Just....just watch the film if you haven't already.

Hell, watch it again if you have.

Morrone has become quite popular,

His Instagram now has over nine million followers. At the start of the film streaming in America on Netflix, he was at 900,000 followers.




Needless to say, this film has skyrocketed his name.

As well it should.

Oh, by the way, the chemistry between the actors that portray characters, mob boss, Don Massimo Torricelli and Laura Biel, is off the chain

There's been some serious rumblings that a sequel will be happening. Can't wait for that....and perhaps since it's based on a trilogy, a third installment will be on the horizon as well.

HAPPY OBAMA DAY




Well, not only is today illegitimate President tRump's birthday; it's also the day to celebrate my President, Barack Obama.


Happy Obama Day!

With all the madness and chaos going on, it's a shame the person occupying the oval office is a racist simpleton and doesn't know how to unite the country. Nor does he want to listen to doctors and scientists in battling COVID19.

It's still calming to know President Obama speaks out when he knows we and the world need to hear from a real leader.... a real President.

Thank you, President Obama.



Did you miss Barack Obama's virtual commencement speech for graduating seniors? If so, watch it now.

Police Officers Murder George Floyd, Protests Erupt in Response to the Horrific Murder and the World Unites...Joining US in Protests


             





On May 25, Minneapolis police officers arrested George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man. Floyd was accused of using a $20 counterfeit bill for his purchases at a store. An employee of the store called 911. That call lead to police arriving at the scene. And in front of witnesses and phone cameras recording, a smug officer, Derek Chauvin, kept his knee pressed against George Floyd’s neck for over eight minutes.

Floyd was already handcuffed. He wasn't resisting arrest prior to the officers putting him on the ground....and Chauvin pressing his knee against Floyd's neck.

Ignoring pleas that he could not breathe; the officer kept his knee on Floyd’s neck. The officers ignored his cries for help, and they ignored bystanders telling them Floyd could not breathe and they were going to kill him. All the while, the arrogance of Floyd's murderer was written all over the killer's face.

The nation was shocked and devastated by the sickening murder caught on video









An independent autopsy was ordered by Floyd's family after the official autopsy failed to be reliable in reference to the cause of death. The autopsy the family had conducted, confirmed Floyd died from asphyxiation.









The horrific murder of George Floyd has been the breaking point for many.

I cannot get the images out of my mind of Mr. Floyd’s life leaving his body, while a cop’s knee was pressed on his neck. His pleas were ignored. He let the officers know he couldn’t breathe, his neck hurt, his stomach hurt, everything hurt. And still, that sorry piece of trash kept his knee on his neck. Even when Mr. Floyd cried out for his mother and stated “they are going to KILL me”...his tormentor continued to hold him down with his knee pressed against his neck. As Mr. Floyd took his last breath...his killer continued to press his fucking knee on his neck.

Books, Novels and More BOOK BLOG Update




It's been a minute since I've worked on my Books, Novels and More book blog. Normally I would post each book of the month pick on the right wall of the blog, as well as write a blog post about the book of the month selection. 

Due to time restraints and other life happenstances, I haven't maintained the book blog in the manner that I used to for over a year. I continued to post minimally on my main blog. However, most posts about books were regulated to social media.

With all that being said, I will be updating more frequently again.

Pandemic 2020: COVID-19 Spreads Across the World






The world is like we've never witnessed before. The United States as well as the entire world, is battling the war against a deadly and highly contagious virus. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) started in Wuhan, China several months ago. An alarming number of folks were getting infected with the virus in Wuhan. Folks were falling out in the street by open markets, people walking around them, left as a reminder of the disruptive and deadly virus.


How did the outbreak start?
The source of the coronavirus is believed to be a "wet market" in Wuhan which sold both dead and live animals including fish and birds. 

Such markets pose a heightened risk of viruses jumping from animals to humans because hygiene standards are difficult to maintain if live animals are being kept and butchered on site. Typically, they are also densely packed.

The animal source of the latest outbreak has not yet been identified, but the original host is thought to be bats. Bats were not sold at the Wuhan market but may have infected live chickens or other animals sold there. 

Bats are host to a wide range of zoonotic viruses including Ebola, HIV and rabies.


The spread of the virus was rapid and did not discriminate. It became apparent that folks could become exposed to the virus just by being in close contact with an infected person. The disease, in my opinion, is also airborne. If a person coughs and doesn't cover their mouth, droplets travel from the mouth and nose and those droplets linger and travel in the air. Meanwhile, folks in the area, breathe in those infected droplets. If an infected person coughs in their hand and then uses that hand to touch surfaces that others will also touch, and folks start touching their faces and mouths, the virus can spread.

The CDC, World Health Organization and medical professionals, issued dire updates on the increasing rise of those infected in the United States as well as around the world. Due to the extent of the spread, it has caused schools to close, businesses to close and government officials urging everyone to stay home and practice social distancing for two weeks or more. Local governments are issuing their own mandatory precautions such as curfews, as well as limiting restaurants to carryout and delivery only.

The virus is very dangerous within the elderly population and folks with underlining medical issues. It is essential to keep them isolated from others to help keep them from becoming infected.

So much has been happening around the world and within the U.S. for the last several weeks due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It became clear immediately that President Trump was not on top of the health crisis when it first hit. Trump initially called the virus "fake news" made up by the media. His supporters echoed his sentiments, despite what medical professionals were saying. As the numbers began to rise, Trump continued to make things worse. He stated there would be millions of tests available and a vaccine would be ready quickly. Immediately after his statements, medical experts would dispute Trump's false rhetoric.

Kobe Bryant, Gianna "GiGi" Bryant and 7 Others Die in Helicopter Crash






I still have no words. It has taken several days for me to even attempt to post about the tragic and heartbreaking passing of Kobe Bryant, 41,  and his beautiful 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

There were no survivors. Seven more lives were lost in the horrific crash as well.

Last Sunday, Bryant's helicopter crashed while en route to a basketball tournament. Bryant's daughter, Gianna, was a rising basketball star in her own right. At her young age, she was a phenomenal player. Kobe coached Gianna and saw she had IT.
