1st Natural Hair March in Brazil

Natural hair empowerment is moving through all corners of the globe, and it's gorgeous. Just recently, on November 7th, Brazil had its first ever natural hair empowerment march ("Marcha do Empoderamento Crespo").
A Facebook group called Curled and Curled created the event. Organizers Lorena Lacerda, Andrea and Naiara Souza said the need for such an event was needed.
“Women suffer from both sides. Racism and sexism. Therefore, we use the concept of empowerment. From the aesthetics, the woman empowers and empowers the community” [translated]
Naiara Souza also stated that hair is a symbol, a pretext to fight racism.
Brazil has a very large black population. It's very amazing to see the afro-latino community joining together to celebrate black hair and beauty.

Here's some of the photos from the march:

Korean Girls Try Mexican Soda For The First Time!
Just when that whole YouTube trend of sampling foods from different cultures was losing its sparkle to me, Digitalsoju TV had to go ahead and introduce Korean girls to Jarritos. I've been wanting to write a card about Jarritos for a while now, as it's one of those Mexican sodas that are an essential part of the culture of Mexican cuisine. Sure, you can talk about Baja California seafood or the delicious carnes of central Mexico's ranching region, but what would that deliciousness be without a cold, fizzy Jarritos on the side? If you don't know Jarritos, it's an incredibly popular Mexican soda brand that's made with cane sugar and comes in a variety of flavors, including strawberry, guava, pineapple, and tamarind. In this video, the girls end up sampling the pineapple, grapefruit, mango, and guava flavors, but how does Jarritos translate in the Land of the Morning Calm? Let's look! Like any good soda, the first thing they notice is it's full of sugar. And then they all realize they're obsessed with the guava one. My favorite was the homegirl going too hard on the grapefruit. This one had her ranking all figured out. Does it match yours? Overall, these girls all agreed that Jarritos was delicious - and would be even more delicious mixed with a little vodka! You can check out their FULL commentary - plus their opinion on Squirt! - in the embedded video above. And then let me know: What's YOUR favorite Mexican soda flavor? And if you haven't tried Jarritos before, which flavor would YOU want to try? @bangtanboysfan1 @AnnahiZaragoza @fabiola12fb @abiersack666 @YeseniaLira @DianaKpop58 @reyestiny93 @AdaliaMartinez @exokpop12385 @michellefuentes @perlaaraujo73 @jessicacruz1480 @DulceOjeda @giselacampos14 @wuyifanslover @nevershoutnancy @mirandazamira @jooheony @YeseniaF @SunnyV @IlseJimenez @KpopGaby @NelyJoss @aabxo @aliciasalinas @ThyaremyCreator @Cuetlatchli @Sunflower18 @purplem00n23 @jannatd93 @Luci546 @ALEXCAMACHO @TehDL @buddyesd @JocelynPacheco @SarahRegulski @MyAffairWith @FelipeZambrano @LindaGuandique @KassyGuz96 @XDLP @alywoah @FelipeZambrano
The Role of Online learning during the covid-19 pandemic
The covid-19 pandemic shook the entire world-impacting many businesses and organizations. The education sector is also one of the industries that are hit by this pandemic. With the nationwide lockdown, all the schools, colleges, and universities were instructed to shift to online learning overnight. While many of the teachers did not have the skill to teach online, similarly students were also having difficulties facing this situation. The sudden shift to online learning brought the use of online learning platforms which was gaining importance in the education sector. Before the covid-19 pandemic, learning platforms were mostly used by students who were pursuing distance education. However, with no other option left during the pandemic, all the educational institutions were forced to conduct online learning and teaching. This further led to the use of learning platforms in the education industry. From the teacher’s point of view, the entire situation was very overwhelming for them as they did not have the experience of handling technology. They lacked the digital skills to conduct a successful online class. However, as the covid-19 situation is getting worse, educational institutions are still shut down to prevent the spread of diseases. This means online education will remain with us for a quite long time now. It can be said that teachers are slowly getting used to creating study materials, courses, and other educational materials through online learning platforms for their students. They are learning to keep their students focused and engaged in their class by creating innovative educational content. Technology if utilized properly can work wonders for you. The same thing happened with online learning. Educational institutions did not realize its potential until the outbreak of this pandemic. With the help of online teaching platform, teachers can find a way to teach their students who are willing to learn online. They can create many courses, educational materials with the help of online tools provided by the teaching platforms. This is a feasible alternative for them to earn money from their home while making the most of their teaching. Talking about students, the most challenging part for them was to stay active and engaged in their learning. Many students get distracted and have a small attention span when it comes to learning online. However, with the proper use of these online learning platforms, they can stay engaged and participate in their learning. What are the benefits of online learning for Students? There are many benefits of online learning which we are going to discuss below. Learn anytime and anywhere- Students can learn anytime and anywhere with the help of online learning platforms and the internet. There is no fixed time and location when it comes to learning online so it removes the barrier of commuting to the physical classroom. Access to various study materials- There is unlimited access to study materials that you will find when learning online. The most important part is that there are a lot of varieties in the study materials like presentations, videos, audios, etc which makes learning more interesting for students as they need not simply mug up the concepts from the same old books. Learn from Expert Educators- When students learn online, they find many subject matter experts and mentors who are ready to teach them. The best part is that they can easily find guidance for their exams in an online approach without having to search them constantly. Game-Based Learning- Game-based learning makes online learning more fun and interactive. Much social learning network have already started implemented game-based learning and in turn, are getting good responses. Personalized Learning- Personalized learning is where teachers teach their students one-on-one as per their learning pace and need. Students can indulge in personalized learning which will help them to understand their concepts more precisely. Online Learning platforms are Economical- Students can make the most of their learning by joining online learning platforms which are highly economical. Hence, they can opt for online learning without having to invest a heavy amount of money. The Education market witnessed a jump in E-learning. According to many online reports, it is estimated that the online learner base in India will reach 9.6 million by the end of 2021. Not only this but India now ranks second in the world after the U.S for its Edtech Market. These figures show the positive response to online learning. On the other hand, online learning cannot be fully implemented in the education sector. Factors such as no access to the internet, network connectivity issues, poverty, etc hinder the growth of online learning. For time being as educational institutions have no option, they need to carry online learning. However, in the future, a blended approach will be much feasible in the education sector. It is where the mixture of both online as well as offline learning will be brought to use. This approach would be very effective as students can learn offline as well as online with some control over their learning like the place, time, etc. To conclude, we can say that online learning is very helpful and effective for students. With the use of Edtech, many educational institutions will be able to engage students in their learning. The pandemic has completely changed the educational landscape however online learning is the need of the hour and students must embrace it in order to continue their learning.
The Real Reason for Supernatural Concepts
Remember back in 2013 when Kpop went into full supernatural concept mode? From EXO's Wolf, VIXX's On & On, Boyfriend's Bounce, etc, etc... there were vampires, aliens, werewolves galore. Nowadays in 2016, though, we're seeing a rise to realism. BTS dealing with drugs (I Need U) or Monsta X dealing with totalitarianism (All In) But, why? "Zombies are the perfect metaphor." (source) Basically, using the supernatural has always been a way of talking about real life issues, without actually bringing them up. For example, in Harry Potter House Elves would represent slaves, the discrimination and fear of werewolves represented how ridiculous racism is, etc. Fiction allows us to talk about important issues in a sly way. For example, VIXX's Hyde portrayed them as vampire-like, living in a spooky house and dark forest, growing black wings and almost being taken over by a monster. At its core, this is a song about dangerous relationships. A partner who is emotionally unstable, but charming. Hurting you but begging to have you back. This can be a metaphor for abusive relationships of all kinds. They repeat over and over that "that man isn't me, there is a crazy 'other me' inside of me." Just as abusers usually do after a moment of violent anger. Hiding this message behind the mask of "monsters" and "dark angels" makes it easier to consume and talk about. But take away the supernatural and its a serious issue they bring up. Another great example is Monster by Big Bang. They dress up as literal monsters, but talk about how just because they are different and not fitting into the society's mold they aren't bad people. It's an anthem for misfits, and a message to society to stop being so cruel. So why are we shedding the costumes now? Why are things suddenly more...real? We're done hiding. The problems can no longer stay hidden, we need to talk about them. No more using vampires and ghosts as metaphors, the general public is more comfortable discussing issues like depression, drugs, mental health, discrimination, etc. The move to realism means that we're being realistic about the problems - we're addressing them head on. That being said, there is nothing wrong with supernatural concepts being used to talk about issues! Often people can't understand something in its original form. For example, maybe someone doesn't see the need for LGBTQ+ rights. Give them a love story with a couple that is forced apart, never to be together (perhaps a vampire and a human??) because society says its unnatural. If while reading the story or watching the movie, that person feels upset about this poor couple torn apart by society, maybe they will see the correlation between their belief that gay marriage is wrong. Basically, I think that the constant changing of concept trends is fascinating and it means much more than we think!
