Continued from page 8

But you can get prepared. Millions of people

worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover,

and Hold On, on October 17* during Great

ShakeOut Earthquake Drills.

All of us in Inland Southern California live

less than 10 miles from a fault that can have a

damaging earthquake. You are likely reading

this while standing on the infamous San

Andreas. It has the potential to produce a

devastating earthquake. Nearby faults such as

the San Jacinto fault create smaller, yet more

frequent earthquakes.

We have learned a lot about protecting our

homes and future in an earthquake. We

believe the danger is real, it's big and it's

coming.

Big earthquakes will disrupt services like

electricity, water and sewer. We all saw

limited access in and out from some minor

flooding a few weeks ago. Also Fire and

police departments will be dealing with the

most serious situations and may be unable to

respond quickly.

There may be long lines and walks to shelter

facilities. Government assistance may not

be available or not enough to replace your

damaged belongings or repair your home.

With a dumbass president and a stalled

congress, a major disaster will likely show

how inept our government has become.

In other words, a perfect storm is brewing.

One that we may live with for years.

But YOU may be safer if you read this

warning: Preparing now, it will give you the

best chances that you and your family will

stay safe.

Most news agencies won't talk about this

because they want you to remain dependent

on them and the products they sell. During

this recent spat of quakes, I and all my friends

watched the news channels and did not see

one mention of reliable resources for you to

prepare with.

Including Drill Manuals and Safety Action

Guides in the workplace and in the home,

health care and when you are separated.

Anyone that witnessed Katrina or Puerto Rico

knows we are not prepared as a nation,

We saw thousands stranded on rooftops,

along roadways, in their homes, hospitals and

in ill-equipped shelters. Many of those victims

were poor and people of color.

We believe it won’t affect us because we are

mobile and can transport ourselves to safety

any place and any time. Today, our victims

will be many poor and people of color, they

are also Vets, elderly, retired living of a fixed

income with no way to rebuild the life they

have now. Our fisrt respongers have been

negelected.

A disaster often tests our preparness, but a

big one will test our metle as a natiion. Will

coime together and rebuild or fall deeper into

a fudal nation or relive The Hatfield–McCoy

feud, some many not even know the term.

AdamsArtExpose’ ART

THE ARTS OF NATIVE AMERICANS

PART I

Archaeological historians have

concluded that the ancestors of

Native Americans were on the

American continent at least 15

thousand years before the arrival

of the Europeans in the 1400's.

The ancestral Native Americans

are believed to have come form

Asia probably through a landmass

that existed at one time as part of

the Bering Straight. These early

people were very industrious and

adaptively creative in providing

shelter, food, weaponry, ceremonial

costumes and application of

the resources available in the

environment where they lived.

The art of the Native American

covers a broad category of

decorative designs and utilitarian

devises that were used for a variety

of daily activities. The artifacts

that have been found dating

back to prehistoric times shows

that ancient people had aesthetic

ability. Examples of this are found

in stone carving and pottery.

Instruments such as arrow heads

carved from stone demonstrated an

understanding of how an arrow or

spear would be used as a hunting

tool based on the sharpened points

and sides of the head. There were

differences in the regional designs

throughout the continent and there

were also similarities showing

that art designs were borrowed

from various areas and brought

to others. Materials used to make

art were also traded and moved

thousands of miles. Shells, jade,

feathers and turquoise were some

of the materials that showed up

in regions where they were not

normally found.

There were similarities found

in regions but the art of Native

Americans is as diverse as the

number of tribes and languages

found in the culture of Native

Americans. The regions of

North American tribes included,

Southwest; Midwest and Great

Plains; Far West, Northeast,

Central South and Southwest.

Eskimo or Inuit and Northwest Coast

are identified as specific areas where

Native American art developed

around regional uniqueness.

The decorative designs of most

Native American tribes cannot be

accurately traced to their origin.

Many came from natural forms,

plants, animals and geological

designs in rocks, etc. Other designs

were originally arrived at with

geometric and linear arrangements.

The next articles on Native American

art will explore regional variations

and applications of their art.

continued from page 22

that we have to carry the weight of our

parents wanting us to get married in order to

pass on our family name. But these days it’s

changing. I mean, we can always get children

even as gay man. My dad had a conversation

about wanting me to have a family after I

came out. I told him that it’s possible, as a gay

man, to have a family. And to keep the family

name as well. Although that’s not something

that’s really important for me, I feel that the

bond we have with the ones we love are more

important than a title.

I just feel that as long as I stay truthful and

authentic to be who I am no more and no

less, it’ll be so easy to keep up. I think!

silent an artist’s soul. It’ll only make me shine

brighter with the truth and my lgbt family.

Your new album is titled, ‘Open Up Babe.’ Tell

me about the tile and the album in general.

Open up babe was a song about opening up

to the world of possibilities. When I lived in

the closet, I held back with so many things

that I believed in because I was fearful about

my sexuality being discovered. Open up babe

represents this loving, authentic and truthful

me, speaking to my fearful younger self that

everything is going to be okay when you trust

your heart in being truthful to who you are.

You have a big female following. What has

their reaction been like since coming out?

I thought I’d no longer get the panties. But

it’s really neat because my relationship with

women is so much stronger now, because

they know that I won’t be a #metoo but

instead I’ll be their advice for whether they

get a green light or red light with the man

they like.

Tell me about your fans in general,

especially when they recognize you in

public.

My fans are super friendly and approachable.

My favorite part is seeing fans come up to me

and giving me hugs in public. It makes me

feel so happy that they show their affection in

a public space. I remember when a fan came

up to me when I was in a gym and gave me

a hug from the back. I returned the hug and

said thank you for being so genuine. And

the response was “it’s because you showed

me that this is possible”. I fucking bawled my

eyes out immediately. It means the world to

me when fans take this part of goodness and

Your former record label was not thrilled

when you decided to come out. How did that

feel considering that this is not 1980s, and

what did you do about it?

I don’t blame them for being upset. I think

it’s because they have not dealt with a

situation like this before. It’s always better for

them to go the safe route - where there are so

many censorships of LGBT contents in Asia

- and they fear that having an LGBT image

will ruin their reputation. But I things are

changing, and it’s about time we allow them

to see what LGBT community is all about. I

was just at the World Pride in NYC with my

best friend this weekend. Seeing millions of

people on the streets celebrating world pride.

I think gay people are the ones who bring

so much happiness in the world. We are the

only community with so much diversity

coming together as one to celebrate. How

beautiful is that. I told them it’s okay that

they removed all my social media, that they interact this way in their daily lives.

July 3 - 7, 2019 Anime Expo

Los Angeles Convention Center

anime-expo.org

This year, Anime Expo was bigger than ever

and it was not Comic Con. Mostly, there

were not a lot of kids, but adults in serious

playtime. The crowd was big all 4 days with

gamers and cosplayers

I noticed mobile gaming had a huge

presence, luckily most were the ones I play,

like Fate/ Grand Order, Azure Lane, Magia

Record and Honkai Impact 3rd. And the the

cosplay included many of these characters.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) a

game where a battle royal takes place, thier

booth was interesting becasue it looked like

a of kids playing on cell phones.
