Avril Mathie

Avril Mathie, born on the 26th of June in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. She is a professional boxer, model and fitness expert.

She says in reference to herself: “I’m just a girl having a go at life and I hope that by my example I can inspire others to do the same.

I want to show people that an ordinary kid that was kicked out of her parents home at 15 years old could support herself through the final year of high school and go on to be anything she wants to be."

"In 2016 I moved from Australia to the United States without a visa, with no job, with no place to live and and supported myself in Miami, Florida - where I had no friends or support."

"Why did I choose such a difficult road...? Partly because I love an adventure, but mainly in order to pursue my dreams of becoming a boxing world champion, a model and role model. Basically, I wanted to have an impact."

Gabriela Salvado

Gabriela Salvado, born on the 16th of June in 1994 in Guatemala. This amazing looking 5' 10" model is currently residing in New York City with her husband and two children.

It is said that Gabriela Salvado is a lovely girl whom possesses great charisma. She has represented major brands of fashion and beauty such as: Givenchy, Benetton, Gap, John Frieda, Garnier, Maybelline and many others.

I would seem apparent that Gabriela enjoys a certain level of anonymity and privacy.

There is very little written about her available on the internet, but there is an abundance of her exquisite photographs, so I have included additional photos at the bottom of the page. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words and that definitely holds true in describing Gabriela Salvado.

In her own words: "I started modeling in Guatemala and afterwards I won a modeling contest in Aruba representing Guatemala, so I had the opportunity to go to New York to pursue my career as a model."

"Currently New York City is where I live, however I have lived in many places such as London, Paris, Germany and other international cities."

"Before I was an ultrarunner, I was a drug addict. I was a hair stylist. a go-go dancer, a daughter, and a friend to many. But mainly I was a drug addict, doing crazy shit to get more drugs."

"The drugs led me to drop out of high school, develop an eating disorder, and damage my relationship with my family. I eventually found myself in jail. That was the start of my turn-around - my rock bottom that shook me into deciding I no longer wanted to be an addict." Running saved her life.

Chaco Canyon, is where an 11th century pictograph at Chaco Canyon may depict the supernova of AD 1054.

This supernova and the Moon were in this configuration when the supernova was near its brightest. An imprint of a hand at the top signifies that this is a sacred place.

Chaco Culture National Historical Park is a major unit of the United States National Park System located within the Navajo Nation in northwest New Mexico.

It preserves extensive ancestral pueblos of prehistoric native American Indian communities. Chaco Canyon's largest pueblo, Pueblo Bonito, is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

For many years, people referred to the great houses in Chaco Canyon as ruins, but modern Pueblo Tribal members consider it more respectful to refer to the sites as ancestral pueblos.

Troublesome Patriarchal Dominance - Time For More Women in Positions of Power

unique women of the world

Women from around the world that are living on the edge, doing something special, making a difference or generally in possession of a unique nature. In my book these women should be put in positions of power and allowed a chance to see what they would add to our world, instead of the men that promise blah-blah-blah and then fill their own pockets as well as the pockets of their buddies. The way I see it, any of this diverse group of women would be an improvement...

These are the kind of women that should be put in positions of power. They would make positive contributions with their time and resources and leave the world better for having been here. And not to mention the fact that they all certainly look far more appealing...

From century to century throughout history the men have ruled the roost in politics and business and relegated the home as the place where the women were to direct their attention and efforts. The women have done their job admirably, but the men have failed miserably in most cases. Their politics are corrupt and their businesses have turned into large greedy corporations. The patriarchal model is evidently not working so well - so maybe it's time to hand the reins over to the women. The wars and conflicts around the world are the result of male dominance in politics, and more often than not, are set in motion to benefit male controlled corporate interests. Turn on the evening news anywhere in the world and you'll see images of angry men in conflict and women and children in flight. It is time for change...

Women Of Substance - Interesting and Unique Women

unique women of the world

Worldwide women are asserting themselves and taking charge of everything from the corporate boardroom to more artistic and unique positions in the world of art, design, cuisine and adventure travel. On the African continent women are raising themselves into postions of power in politics, the arts and business. Women are no longer to be kept within stereotypical confines and are no longer asking for empowerment, but are simply taking charge over their lives and the situations and events that affect them. Above are just three of these self empowered females.

When it comes to being on the front lines amidst the unrest that has been reshaping countries around the world, it is now women who are placing themselves at risk to bring news to the rest of us about not only the conflicts that mainstream media reports, but often to expose corruption and abuses that might well never surface if it wasn't for these women on the ground in these locations bringing these misdeeds to the attention of a worldwide audience. The women above are three - one from Tunis, one from London, and one from Cairo that played integral roles in bringing the world's attention to injustice.

The patriarchal cultures around the world have dominated for thousands of years and more often than not have brought conflict and mayhem. The women of today are not the incompetent and helpless creatures that, in times past were portrayed as inferior to me and therefore needed to remain on the sidelines to let the dominant males run everything. Todays women are physically strong, mentally tough and talented at whatever they put their minds to. So, it is bloody well time that the men stepped to one side and ceased to deny these remarkable women like the ones above their due.

The Girl Who Ran Across Africa

At the age of 27 Emma Timmis became the first female to run the Freedom Trail, a 2,400 kilometer through track from Durban to Cape Town in South Africa. This later led to running West to East across the continent of Africa, from Namibia to Mozambique.

This incredible run took Emma 89 days, covering the distance equal to 94 marathons, or almost 4,000 kilometers.

Emma suffered an injury that kept her at home for an extended period, so she wrote a childrens book about her runs across Africa to inspire young girls. The book is now available from her website at: www.emmatimmis.com
