Bus bursts into flames on Mass Pike
LIVE AT FEDERAL COURT, WCVB NEWSCENTER 5. Phil: KELLEY, THANKS. WE WANT TO BRINK YOU BREAKING NEWS. LOOK AT THESE PICTURES LIVE FROM SKY 5 RIGHT NOW. TAY IS A THAT IS A BUS.
IT IS ENGULFED IN FLAMES. THIS IS ON THE MASS PIKE EASTBOUND IN WEST NEWTON. OBVIOUSLY TWO LANES THERE ARE COMPLETELY CLOSED RIGHT NOW. THE GOOD NEWS IS WITH THE FLAMES AND A BUS THAT SIZE THERE ARE NO REPORTS OF
INJURIES. YOU CAN SEE THE FIREFIGHTERS WITH THE HOSES. THEY ARE GETTING A LOT OF WATER ON THIS FIRE AS WE SPEAK. YOU CAN SEE THE BLACK SMOKE STARTING TO TURN GRAY.
THAT'S A SIGN THEY ARE GETTING A LOT OF WATER AND THE UPPER HAND. WE ARE NOT SURE WHERE THIS BUS WAS HEADED TO. WE DO KNOW THAT IT WAS HEADING EASTBOUND ON THE MASS PIKE THROUGH WEST NEWTON.
IT IS ON FIRE RIGHT NOW AND IT LOOKS LIKE FIREFIGHTERS ARE GETTING THE UPPER HAND.
How To Talk To NonVegans Without Being An AHole
So we've covered how NOT to talk to nonvegans. You know meat contains poop! You know milk contains pus! cricket sounds Not myâ€¦proudest moments. But today we'regoing to talk about how TO talk to nonvegans. I promise I won't hit this time. Hi it's Emily from Bite Size Vegan and welcometo another vegan nugget. I'm asked all the time about how to effectively talk to nonvegans,or even pure â€œdietaryâ€� vegans to help them
make the connection or a deeper connection. I'd argue that perhaps the most difficultaspect of going vegan is the question of how to relate to friends, family, and other peoplewho are nonvegan. As brand new vegans, your eyes are wide open to all of these realitiesyou'd never before considered and you can't quite understand why everyone isn't havingthe same earthshattering revelation. So communication, especially grounded communication, can becomedifficult, and what often comes out is either unbridled overzealousness, militant anger,incomprehensible sadness and crying fits, or some other often bizarre attempt at expressingastounding new realities you've awakened to.
While I do have some tutorials that touch onthis matter and the social and familial challenges of veganism, which will be linked up thereand below, I haven't yet made a direct tutorial response. Well it just so happens that inthe QA session for a speech I gave recently, these very questions were once again posed. I kept these answers out of the official QAtutorial for that speech as these are more geared towards those of you who are already veganand are now trying to navigate the difficult landscape of talking about veganism with others.So I thought I'd share with you my onthespot answers from that session, and I so hope thatthey are helpful.
Yeah. Smack â€˜em in the face. Noâ€¦that'swhat I want to do sometimes. I have a tutorial where do I run around and I punch people.I'm sorry, also just so you know I do this twenty four seven though sometimes I soundlike that I have this tutorial you know I live on this computer so that always italways comes out my mouth and I apologize but so with non vegans again it's going it'sgoing to depend so much on the person and where they're at in if you're walking downthe street you see someone eating a hamburger it's not going to be the time to be like â€œheyyou knowâ€¦â€� but if you're talking to family, friends, loved ones or even at work what Ialways tell people, people email me all the
time and say like you know how do I becomean activisté How do we start talking about this and I think a lot of us think that wehave to do things like that we could have we have to like do a presentation you needto go you know talk to everyone and you do these huge things we really there are alwaysthese opportunities in daily life. These tiny opportunities that we can take and I thinksome of the most powerful activism happens one on one with just even the smallest ofexchanges you know it can be I can be something as simple as like if you have a friend whois really into rescuing dogs and cats you know maybe there there's someone who is intothat they volunteer at the shelter or anything
and you can share maybe a story you heardabout like you know at a farm sanctuary where sometimes pigs will jump off slaughterhousetrucks and in the end you know they're found and people take them in and so it can evenbe like â€œyou know, I know that you're really in the animal rescue I heard about this youknow pig that got rescued you know here's this cute You Tube tutorial of them even thesereally like subtle ways of kind of introducing the fact that you know what's the differencebetween this animal and this animal. In general because I can't speak to every situation andevery person I find the most effective manner is meeting people where they are at, findingthat common ground like finding what their
