It is a privilege and honor for me to share my thoughts with you today as the recipient of the 2021 Honorary Degree in Environmental Arts and Peace Sciences from the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA).
This year presented a total of 15 candidates from 7 countries: India, Pakistan, South Africa, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland and the United States.
All the Worlds Children congratulates these Recipients as human rights defenders, environmentalists, artists committed to peace, and creators of initiatives for reconciliation, non-violence, justice, solidarity and peace, at local, national and international levels.
The CLEVELAND NATIONAL PEACE PLAN is being implemented and it is needed that since people have been working in many unimaginable ways, it’s time we begin to heal and overcome - together - in solidarity. The 2021 Recipients have all succeeded in developing particular approaches incorporating Iceality that integrates justice, economics, culture and technology in one way or another to meet the challenges of today's societies.
Their holistic and collective initiatives will become lighthouses that mobilize one's hope to build a future American Culture of Peace with the Great American Peace Trail. They bring with them a world of tolerance and harmony that builds relationships between People, their Environment with respect to the Fauna and Flora living here: the Worlds Children.
This distinction is unique to Cleveland and is designed to recognize efforts that Northeast Ohio is the global home of the Environmental Arts Movement and will serve as an ongoing reminder of achievements through Iceality in making Northeast Ohio the 'Universal Cradle for a Culture of Peace' for all Living Things that will be an inspiration for future generations to follow.
The WCPM would like to thank everyone who participated in this edition for their openness to the new approach that is more collaborative than competitive. We are pleased to offer visibility to all your community peace initiatives, whether known or not. The only objective of this prize is to make known a maximum of initiatives and artisans of peace to the general public, and this goes beyond any form of competition! We remind you that as we announced in a previous e-mail, in this way we try to give greater visibility to each prizewinner and we invite you to expand the solidarity network of the artisans and peacemakers that the needs to highlight.
With warm good wishes,
Ambassador Renate Jakupca

Patriotism makes you feel alive. To the great people, living for the country must be the first goal. A patriot never choose money over country benefit. Be bold, a bright star, and brave heart. Always do proud of your country irrespective of its greatness by embracing your country's art, culture and values. Listen to local music and watch local movies. Make it a priority to visit your own country's destinations before traveling to other countries. Youth can also teach and encourage children to love and respect their countries, in order to grow their national pride. The true measure of a Patriot is when a person lays down their life with the knowledge that those he saves... will never know.

Happy Independence Day Everyone! (Fireworks sound effect) We hope your 4th of Julyy weekend is starting off with a bang!
The Fourth of July—also known as Independence Day or July 4th—has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution. On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence, with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbeques.
Significance of this day is that it reminds us of all the sacrifices that were made by our freedom fighters in order to set America free from British rule.
Over the years, the political importance of the holiday would decline, but Independence Day remained an important national holiday and a symbol of patriotism.
Falling in mid-summer, the Fourth of July has since become a major focus of leisure activities and a common occasion for family get-togethers, often involving fireworks and outdoor barbecues. The most common symbol of the holiday is the American flag, and a common musical accompaniment is “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem of the United States.
We will talk about this more later. We have recipes, word of the day and other hot topics and tidbits for you to enjoy! This is Ambassador Renate und.........

I exchanged flowers with Rese Wagner the other day. I am happy to say that my edelweiss garden now has blue enzian plants for the first time. Rese has been growing them for a longtime and her and her husband, Adolf are really great gardeners. Their garden looks just beautiful! And their vegetable garden already has large tomatoes on the vines! They really have a green thumb. They are such wonderful people! Thank you Rese!
blue enzian, the beautiful blue alpine flower that sits beautifully next to edelweiss!
blue enzian is notable for their mostly large, trumpet-shaped blue flowers.
Many blue enzians are difficult to grow outside their wild habitat, but several species grow in well-drained, neutral-to-acid soils rich in humus. They are popular in rock gardens.
Many beverages are made with roots Some species are harvested for the manufacture of apéritifs, liqueurs, and tonics.
The soft drink Moxie, The French liqueur Suze is made with enzian rootsan. Americano apéritifs contain enzian root for bitter flavoring. It is an ingredient in the Italian liqueur Aperol which I talked about last week. It is also used as the main flavor in the German after-dinner digestif called Underberg, and the main ingredient in Angostura bitters .
rese's secret to growing blue enzians is give them plenty of sun --- but no heat
Thank you Rese!
Something unique to do in Austria in July
What's better than drinking beer on a very hot day? Taking a bath in a beer pool! We have all heard of washing and rinsing your hair in beer, but now you can immerse your
whole body in a beer bath! Let me share this with all you Cleveland German Radio Show listeners!
Starkenberger Beer Pools
All beer lovers are ready to experience a beer like never before! As the name implies, you can cool not only beer but also beer! So tag your favourite friends and start the party! Starkenberger Castle has seven pools, each 4.10 meters deep and 42,000 pints of beer to relax more than ever. What’s more, who wants to miss the vitamins and calcium that this beer offers?
An Austrian brewery castle where you can literally swim in beer
Presenting the one place in the world where it's not girly to take a bubble bath: the centuries-old Austrian brewery Starkenberger, who've built the world's first-ever beer swimming pools in the recesses of their brew-castle, and, for a paltry fee, you can take a dip. Here's the skinny:
Located a few hours outside Munich, the Starkenberger brewey has been at it for more than a hundred years, and is currently (and always has been) run by women. This bearded dude is merely one of their minions.
Barrels are stored down in their super gothic cellar, which you could see if you dropped $10 on a brewery tour, but totally don't care about since you came for the beer pools! So, without further ado...
Residing in the old fermentation brewery, there are seven total pools in a Turkish-bath-like room, each of which are heated and contain 12,000L of water enriched with 300L Biergeläger (remote yeast). Fun fact: ever since the days of ancient Egypt when Cleopatra bathed in beer while Mark Anthony was off conquering empires, beer bath's have been rumored to have a healing, restorative effect.
You've gotta make reservations in advance but for $298/ pool (and an additional $6.50/ person) this could be you sharing a beer pool with blonde coeds. Your two hours of beer bathing also come with beer crackers and a "Tyrolean meat spread" plus one non-swimmed-in bottle of suds per person; because actually drinking the pool beer would be insane... right??

R Well, that is a pretty song! That lady really knows how to yodel!
Close your eyes. Think about the month of July. What do you see? Fireworks bursting into spirals of color high up in the dark sky. What do you smell? Chlorine from the pool as you climb up to the top of the water slide. What do you feel? A roughness in your hands as you grasp the old tire swing rope tied to the tree in your front yard and the dirt squelching between your bare toes before you pull back to swing. What do you taste? The cool, sweet, cherry flavor of a popsicle melting in your hand while you wait for dad to finish grilling. What do you hear? Your friends calling your name from the driveway, its time to play outside.
The summer often brings back nostalgic memories of days long gone. After all, for many years, July meant long, hot days with nothing to do but to play outside. Now, it too often means nothing but more monotonous days of work. For adults, three joyous months of summer vacation is a thing of the past. But that doesn’t mean we can’t remember the good old times.
“In the old parts of Bavaria, the family tables are out in the cobbled streets so that you can’t drive past. They insist you join them at midnight on a hot July evening. So that’s just what you do, abandoning the car on a hot juluy summer night is like a perfection of living.
May we think of freedem, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.
