Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
History Continued
And you were 21 years old, you were just leaving childhood. The human brain does not fully develop until age 25. Then the decision-making part of my brain still needed training. There was no one to tell me what to do. You became the number one star in this business. Didn't he have royalties or rights to get some kind of reward for your popularity? None. None at all. In the video of the hijab, the most popular, three young people participate. You were one of them and you wore the Islamic scarf. You had to know how provocative that was. I literally told them that they will kill me. Why didn't you say you weren't going to do it? Intimidation. I was afraid. No one forces you to have sex, but I was still scared. Have you ever felt nervous about saying something in a restaurant when the food is not right and the waiter comes and asks "how is everything"? I was intimidated. Was nervous. You say that the concept of consent makes no sense in the dynamics of power between the men who control the porn industry and a young 21-year-old actress like you. Absolutely. When there are four white producers in the room and you tell them something like that, and everyone laughs, it's devastating and makes you not want to talk or say anything. It is the same when you sign your contract, you know the president and CEO of the company in the room, he is with you waiting for you to read it and when you are reading it you do not understand anything that is written, because you are very nervous, because people make you He is watching. When you left the filming set at the end of that particular movie, did you know deep down that this was going to be a disaster for you? He didn't hit me until the next day, because the adrenaline was still very high. But immediately after its launch, my whole world was shattered. The reason I thought it was good to do porn was because I thought nobody would find out. There are millions of girls who record themselves having sex and do things like that, and nobody knows their names. No one knows who they are. No one recognizes them that way. I wanted to do it as my dirty little secret, but it exploded in my face. Khalifa says he assumes 100% responsibility for having participated in the porn industry, which he considers today to be a mistake. From the point of view of filmmakers and distributors, it was a triumph. They said I was like lightning that fell into a bottle. The reality for you was that your face was known throughout the world as the porn star wearing hijab and suffered threats. Oh yeah. I will not say about EI, because I don't think everyone who is very involved with EI has a Twitter account. They put a picture of me on someone who was beheaded and said ... I don't know exactly what they said. They said something that would be next. I can't imagine how alone you must have felt at that moment, because you couldn't discuss this with your family. No. It was scary. But my mechanism to deal with these things is humor. So my answer was: "Well, as long as you don't cut my tits. They are worth a lot of money." You were 21 years old. Now five years have passed. How much personal responsibility do you assume for what you did? The 100%. I made the decision. Of course the industry is imperfect and we must do something to protect other girls so they don't fall into the same trap as me. But it was my choice. Going out of business when that viral video was so well known and associated with something so provocative, and you received the threats ... Was it a very quick decision for you? I wouldn't say very fast, because I was still nervous. I didn't know how to react to that. In fact, I summoned them all at a meeting a month later and I had a resignation letter for each one and told them about my feelings. They tried to convince me to stay and they told me that all this would happen and that I was safe, that I was exaggerating. Then these guys saw you frankly as a money machine. Absolutely. Do you think you suffer some type of post-traumatic stress from this experience? Yes. And I think it is activated mainly when I go out because I feel that people can see through my clothes and I feel very ashamed and it makes me feel like I have lost all my privacy. Because I am on a Google search. The suicide of porn actress August Ames at the end of 2017 led some female colleagues to protest their situation and the pressures they face. You have no right to delete the images, even if they are deeply personal to you. It is very difficult. It is. This story is your story. But frankly, it's also the story of other porn actors and actresses. Honestly, I started to realize that p agoOco. People started communicating with me. My manager checks emails and when he receives things like that, he filters them and sends them to me. Reading the words of some of these girls who have been trafficked and forced into pornography, all these stories of girls whose lives have been ruined (...) makes me feel that it was good to start talking and to do this interview. Consecutive deaths of 5 porn actresses who set off alarms about the harsh conditions of the adult entertainment industry in the US There is a school of thought that says that in many countries young people are so exposed to pornography that it is changing the way men and women interact. What do you think? Of course it affects relationships. Porn addiction is very frequent. The things that men see in the videos are expected of women in their lives, and that is not the reality. Nobody is going to be so perfect, nobody will do those acts on a Wednesday night. If you could talk to that 21-year-old girl, Mia Khalifa, walking down the street in Florida, stopped by the boy who said, "You are beautiful, lovely. I can work with you," what would you tell her to do today? There is a pepper spray of gas in your bag for a reason. Use it. Run!
Adult Industry History
The human interest in sex is nothing new, but the internet has made it much easier to explore and exploit all the nuances of desire. The online porn industry makes billions of dollars in profits every year, but the big beneficiaries are the producers, not the women and men who perform sexual acts in front of the camera. Mia Khalifa was a porn actress for a brief period at the end of 2014. SHe gained worldwide fame when she appeared in a video of sexual content wearing an Islamic hijab (the scarf worn by some Muslim women to cover his head) that caused great controversy and caused him to receive threats from supporters of the self-styled Islamic State (IS). To what extent does pornography still dominate the internet? He currently has 16 million followers on Instagram and if his name is searched on Google, thousands of results appear. But Khalifa is not proud of its worldwide fame. After years of threats, he is now talking openly about his past. What does your story tell us about the porn industry and culture of the 21st century? This is what he told in an interview with Stephen Sackur on the BBC's Hard Talk program. Khalifa, who was born and raised in Lebanon in a Christian family, received death threats from suspected members of the Islamic State. In many ways, you are a very famous woman. But the origin of your fame lies in your brief participation in the porn industry. Is it hard for you to deal with that? Absolutely. After quitting, my Instagram account was hacked by EI supporters, who posted propaganda everywhere. So Instagram deleted it and I didn't make a new account until a year later, when I decided to accept my destiny as the infamous porn star and try to change the narrative. So I created an Instagram account again and tried, in the absence of a better term, to become an influencer. If you put your name on Google, countless links to videos appear. The words "porn star" appear immediately, is that something you will never overcome? I am trying to make it. I am not very friendly with Google and we are trying to change that. The first thing that appears is a site that I have no control over, but that from the beginning is written in the first person, as if it were mine. And on my Wikipedia it is published as my official website. And we have tried countless times to eliminate it, even through legal action, but the company does not listen. And we have made countless proposals. "Why I chose a career in pornography" You were taken by your parents as a child from Lebanon to the US, where you received your education. You are clearly intelligent, you went to the university in Texas, where you studied history. How did you get into the porn industry? I do not believe that low self-esteem discriminates against anyone. Does it matter if you come from a good family or if you come from a not-so-good environment? I struggled all my childhood with being overweight and never felt attractive or worthy of male attention. And suddenly, in my first year of college, I started losing a lot of weight by making small changes. And by the time I graduated, I was ready to make a difference. I felt very self-conscious about my breasts, because that was the first thing I lost when I lost almost 50 pounds (22.6 kg). Florida cities like Tampa and Miami have been attracting models, producers and talent scouts of the porn industry for years. So my biggest insecurity was my breasts, and I wanted to recover them. And once I did it (Khalifa underwent a cosmetic surgery operation), I began to attract all this attention from men and never got used to it. I felt that, unless I clung to that and did what was asked of me or what was expected of me, it would be insignificant. And after feeling what that validation and compliments was like, I didn't want that to end. You were a young graduate who wanted to find a job and a boy on the street told you he could work with you. He was sincere and said he was in the porn business. What made you feel attracted to this proposal? That was not how it happened. It wasn't "Hey, do you want to get into porn?" It was more a "You're beautiful, would you like to model a little? You know, you have a great body and I think you would be great at modeling." Things like that. And after I arrived at the studio, it was a very respectable place, a magnificent place in Miami, in Doral, Florida. It was clean. Everyone who worked there was friendly. All their cubicles were decorated with family photos. As if it were nothing doubtful or something that made me feel uncomfortable. The first time I entered was not the first time I filmed a porn movie. It was the second time. In the first one, it was more than signing the paperwork, etc.

'Train to Busan' as Critique of Korean Society
I still haven't been able to see Train to Busan for myself, but I found this article on NPR to be really interesting! It doesn't ruin any plot points (other than the fact that there is a zombie apocalypse which I'm pretty sure we could gather from the trailer...) According to the article: Without giving too much of the story away, the film blames corporate callousness for the death toll. The government covers up the truth — or is largely absent. And the crew? Rather than rescue passengers, it follows the wishes of a businessman. Sewol Ferry Reference: These themes are particularly resonant in South Korea, which in 2014 faced national tragedy after 300 people, mostly teenagers, died when a ferry overturned in the sea. Investigators found the ferry's corporate owners overloaded it to save money. And the captain and crew got into lifeboats without rescuing passengers. News media, toeing the government line, originally reported that everyone survived, blamed rescuers for not working hard enough (when in reality the government refused to let them go into the water and rescue the children), etc. The Korean president's whereabouts on that day are still unexplained. Then the MERS Outbreak: Last year, as Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, spread in South Korea, the government wouldn't share key information about where patients were being treated, where it started, and how officials would contain the outbreak. The government refused to communicate with the public, so the Seoul mayor had to go against the president and form his OWN plan to fix the problem. As a result, he's now in the running for next president (since Koreans have lost all respect or trust in the current pres) You can read the full piece by NPR right HERE. Has anyone seen this yet?!
