Happy 28th Anniversary of National Coming Out Day “October 11, 2016”

By Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“October 11th is an annual celebration within the LGBTQ community.

In 2016, we celebrate with everyone the 28 years Anniversary of the National Coming Out Day which was established by the Human Rights Campaign to honor all those individuals who came out as either lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied”



“28 years ago, on the anniversary of the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights, we first observed National Coming Out Day as a reminder that one of our most basic tools is the power of coming out. One out of every two Americans has someone close to them who is gay or lesbian. For transgender people, that number is only one in 10.

Coming out – whether it is as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or allied – still matters. When people know someone who is LGBTQ, they are far more likely to support equality under the law. Beyond that, our stories can be powerful to each other.” credit source: http://www.hrc.org

About HRC – Human Rights Campaign:

The Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide. As the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer civil rights organization, HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are ensured of their basic equal rights, and can be open, honest and safe at home, at work and in the community.

To learn more about HRC’s programs please visit their website and perhaps there is something that you can do to participate in any of their programs that will expand the basic equal rights of everyone especially the LGBTQs.



“Your families matter to me, and you matter to me,” Clinton said. “I’m going to keep … fighting for you, your rights, your children, your futures. I’m fighting for an America where we don’t leave anyone out. And I am proud to be fighting right alongside you.”



“Happy Thanksgiving Canada”

Real Leadership and Global Competency Morph an Individual to become Ethically Responsible

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Are you discharging leadership qualities; developing your personal leadership competency; or pretending to be a leader?

Why don’t you validate your leadership qualities whether relevant to today’s environment or you have been using a practice that is obsolete and inhumane. It will be a great idea to re-assess oneself based on qualities of #Real Leaders as shown below;





Getting Hired and Not Being Hired – “the syndrome”

By Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Hiring people is always been a puzzling activity within any size of organization across industries; where making an investment to the new hire as an asset; particularly when you look at its bigger landscape and not focusing on minor elements of screening, interviewing or on-boarding documentation. There are many facets of employment process that require more foresight, business analysis, legal implications and strategic approaches to achieve best success in hiring a competent member of the work force.

On the other side of the hiring organization, are the perspectives of candidates. There are expectations that each candidate wanted to pursue. There are numerous blunders that they will encounter during the application process. In today’s employment landscape, the challenge of any job seeker is ‘how can I get hired syndrome’.

Every candidate believes that all studying, preparation and readiness to work are within oneself. But the syndrome is keep floating around and most are chasing those employment opportunities here and beyond.


The Officers of International Business Club at Western Washington University has recently requested Mr. Juntee Terrenal’s expertise to share them professional insights and strategies that will overcome the ‘how can I get hired syndrome’ to prepare them for their employment adventures after graduation.

Senior and graduating students who will participate in the workshop will experience hands-on competency acquisition, critical thinking reasoning in creating an active strategy that will achieve employ-ability, and independent decision making to select which employer will benefit them for a long term career regardless of international location.


Candidates must develop their own personal case in order to get hired. Looking through beyond oneself and create that synergy of acumen and competency is all that it takes.

Thank you.

With Peace Internationally Makes Everyone Experience Love

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Today,  we participate inclusively across international borders in celebrating the bond of peace among all citizens of every nation.


“I believe that at this moment we all face a choice, we choose to press forward with a better model of cooperation and integration, or we can retreat into a world of sharply divided and ultimately in conflict along age-old lines of nations and tribe and race and religion. I want to suggest to you today that we must go forward and not back”

“Am I daft?” “No, because I know of many benefits of doing it!”

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

NASA just released their most recent findings pertaining to the impact of #climatechange; and it is very realistic. Last month was indeed very hot. Even friends across the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean were telling me that it was extraordinarily hot in their own locations as well.

According to NASA’s scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies based in New York, August 2016 is hottest in 136 years. “We stress that the long-term trends are the most important for understanding the ongoing changes that are affecting our planet.” – said GISS Director Gavin Schmidt

The image below illustrates the ‘bell-curve graphics’ provided by NASA.


To read the full text of NASA’s findings, please click on “GIS Temp Update” 

What’s going on in our planet Earth?

#Globalwarming is impacting us all. Published studies and ‘raw data-experiential reports’ were describing and illustrating unprecedented heat levels across regions around the globe. But the most embarrassing of it all is that many among our politicians are deniers about this fact. Their politics is placed ahead of the heat-waves that their constituencies were experiencing.

In my neighborhood, homes were built based on a cooler climate across four seasons. This Summer, more and more homes have installed air-conditioning units and they were running almost day in day out. That tells you how the temperatures during Summer has been affecting families in their own homes. What about those that cannot afford air-conditioning units? What will they do?

“It has been a record year so far for global temperatures, but the record high temperatures in the Arctic over the past six months have been even more extreme, this warmth as well as unusual weather patterns have led to the record low sea ice extents so far this year.” – said Walt Meier, a sea ice scientist at NASA Goddard.

What can individuals do to curb the increasing heat around them?

This Summer, it was great experiencing natural breeze of the wind, when you have trees around your home; cooling off under the trees during those high temperatures was helpful; the breeze was lovely.  When there were no breeze, the air-conditioning unit was the most convenient. Neighbors without air-conditioning units go to the nearest mall for a stroll or have snacks. Then go home when the temperature has gone down. For people who work, their employers provide a conducive air-conditioned work environment unless you are in construction.

Strategically for a long term adjustments of the #ClimateChange it would be ideal to plant a tree around you. When you find a space around your property, it will be a good investment of planting a tree that will provide some shade and other ecological benefits notwithstanding of their beautiful appearance.

A Tree Planting Challenge for Everyone:

Find a space around you, where you can plant a tree. Talk to friends and perhaps you can work together for a tree planting project at locations that are needing trees. Perhaps, there are areas within your communities that are needing some trees. Regardless of where you are located internationally, what matters is you can help in planting trees that will create a better environment around everyone. Trees provide many benefits beyond our expectations.

Last Spring, I planted a new tree at available space in our lot (see image below). This is the second year that I planted a tree. It looks great and survived the hot Summer. It will provide some substances that our planet needs to sustain a cooler temperature. It is only one tree that was planted last Spring, however when there will be more of us who will plant a tree once a year. We will be able to create a more balanced ecology for our own advantage in this earth.


Tips in planting trees around your home:

When planting trees around your backyard or around your home, consider the aesthetic impact of the tree.  Plant something that will go with your current garden theme to maximize its benefits.  Consider the impact of the tree height when you are living in a neighborhood with HOA  (Home Owners Association) restrictions. For long term investment, follow the best practices in planting a tree so it will not die after few weeks. Planting a tree is your investment for the future that you will personally share with the world. Enjoy.

Are There Options? Balancing the ‘Ecosystem of the Planet Earth’

By Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist and Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

In the Twenty-first Century, it is quite unbelievable seeing so called ‘new studies’ that come and go as fast as the social media churns out fact-based and or fictionally-biased information. Often, you will see newly labelled studies or new phenomena, suggesting new remedial options. These suggested new concepts and options are actually been told many times two or three decades ago. But perhaps some writers were not born yet during those periods.

In fact, reforestation an agro-forestry technique in preserving the natural wilderness of the planet earth have been practiced by many responsible individuals, groups and organizations who care about preserving the quality of our environment and balancing ecosystem. In many countries around the world, deforestation became prevalent due to lumber and logging practices and these have created imbalances of our ecosystems. Floods and erosion came and destructed communities as results of these man-made activities. Often, you hear focused-interest-groups, scientists and or elected individuals that do not acknowledge the links of both facts.

Today, from season to season we are seeing real-life results of mankind’s irresponsible abuse of the planet earth. The effects of ‘global warming’ like the fast changing climactic realities such as abnormal heatwaves or colder temperatures, coastal flooding that destroyed neighborhoods, droughts that caused firestorms including landslides and earthquakes (note: all link sources are acknowledged).


This is a new development. “The researchers found that only about 23 percent of the land across the globe can be labeled “wilderness” today — nearly a 10 percent drop from two decades ago. And those areas are concentrated mainly in North America, North Asia, North Africa, and Australia.” (source credit: theverge.com)

What this means?

The article confirmed that we are losing fast the wilderness that is a sanctuary of ecological balance. Mankind are not protecting trees and wild life in the forest. It pointed the continental locations of the affected areas. Ironically, those same places were experiencing frequent ‘global warming phenomena’ in the last five years.

Can we do something about it? How?

Yes, we can do some strategic contribution. Every individual can plant a tree anywhere possible every time convenient. This action will somehow help in augmenting the lost force of wilderness in the last two decades. Stop cutting trees around your neighborhood. Discuss about the advantages of preserving trees around people and within the environment. Trimming their crowns is OK because you are not cutting them down. When a big tree is being cut down due to its age and risks, do replace it with a young one that will grow and provide the lost substance from the old tree. So let’s start planting trees around us. ‘Till next time.

Saint Teresa of Kolkata then “Mother Teresa the Living Saint”

By Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

“to follow Christ into the slums to serve him among the poorest of the poor” – Mother Teresa

Sunday morning during the Papal Mass at the Saint Peter Square, Pope Francis declared Mother Teresa as the Saint Teresa of Kolkata.

@_2016 2016 _SaintMotherTeresa

“For the honour of the Blessed Trinity, the exaltation of the Catholic faith and the increase of the Christian life, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and our own, after due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother Bishops, we declare and define Blessed Teresa of Calcutta to be a Saint,” – Pope Francis, Sept 4, 2016, St. Peter Square, Vatican

Brief Backgrounder about Saint Teresa of Kolkata:

Born to Albanian parents in what is now Skopje, Macedonia (then part of the Ottoman Empire), Gonxha (Agnes) Bojaxhiu was the youngest of the three children who survived. For a time, the family lived comfortably, and her father’s construction business thrived. But life changed overnight following his unexpected death.

During her years in public school Agnes participated in a Catholic sodality and showed a strong interest in the foreign missions. At age 18 she entered the Loreto Sisters of Dublin. It was 1928 when she said goodbye to her mother for the final time and made her way to a new land and a new life. The following year she was sent to the Loreto novitiate in Darjeeling, India. There she chose the name Teresa and prepared for a life of service. She was assigned to a high school for girls in Kolkata, where she taught history and geography to the daughters of the wealthy. But she could not escape the realities around her—the poverty, the suffering, the overwhelming numbers of destitute people.

In 1946, She returned to Kolkata, where she lived in the slums and opened a school for poor children. Dressed in a white sari and sandals (the ordinary dress of an Indian woman) she soon began getting to know her neighbors—especially the poor and sick—and getting to know their needs through visits.

For the next four decades Mother Teresa worked tirelessly on behalf of the poor. Her love knew no bounds. Nor did her energy, as she crisscrossed the globe pleading for support and inviting others to see the face of Jesus in the poorest of the poor. In 1979 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. On September 5, 1997, God called her home.(source: americancatholic.org)

Saint Teresa of Kolkata was Canonized to become a Saint by Pope Francis at the Saint Peter Square early Sunday, Vatican time.

As an Individual, Do I Really Need To Care?

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Across social media, at first glance of numerous tweets illustrate personal irresponsibility. Why do people allow themselves to be an accessory of someone else?

Regardless of our own personal circumstances, we are in the twenty-first century with advanced knowledge and experiences of so many things. Why not moving forward to promote integrity, civility, common sense, respect, and greater love with humanity? The whole world will become more at peace when we do our personal action in this regard.

Today, as we close the month of August 2016, it will be another moment to express our continuous gratitude of your engagements across our social media platforms. We enjoy hearing and learning about valuable insights, tweets and shares. Let’s keep going.

Being Indispensable is the Result of Critical Thinking with True Leadership

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

When leadership reclaims its role within any type and size of organization, one thing that illustrates effectiveness is being critical on every direction. This is because results justify those means.

@_2016 2016Acritical judgment

Most individuals failed because of paying attention to impertinent thinking that creates confusion. Making decisions based on relevance and what matters most instead.
