In Oregon Everyone is Automatically Registered to Vote

A unique first-ever bill in the United States was passed in Oregon, automatically registering all eligible Oregonians to vote when they obtain or renew a driver’s license or state identification card.
If you don’t want to vote. Easy, just opt out via email. But who would want to do that?
Forreal though: Why do we even have to register for voting? Voting is a right that all Americans receive, why aren’t we exercising it?
In Denmark, all citizens are voters and there is a 85% turnout....compare that to the U.S. 2012 turnout of 57.5%... Maybe it was due to the pain of registration, so Oregon made it easier. Let’s do that for all states, shall we?
To all the people out there who don’t want to vote, think back to how we struggled to obtain the vote and then you’ll want to go out and vote, right? Also, just watch this trailer and get excited with me (yeah it takes place in Britain, but still).
VOTING ROCKS!

USA food Vs. Korean food.
Que tal peeps. I'm sick so I apologize if my cards are not on point like usual. I thought this video was interesting. I know when we mi familia go to Korean restaurants we don't have an issue with the differences. At mi abula's home we tend to pass food around. Heck even at my granny house who is from the south we pass food around so I am surprised how we were able to adapt with the changes at the Korean restaurant. HOW DOES YOUR FAMILY EAT? COMMENT BELOW!

Cosplaying while black: are we making our communities unsafe for nonwhite members?
It's all fun and games. Until it's not. I've mentioned Marvel's race problem before, but the truth is the problem is everywhere. There are very few positive representations of people of color in the media today. Some of this is because those in charge of casting, writing, and producing the media we love are almost all white. There are about three nonwhite people in America for every nonwhite character we see on screen, and of those characters, how many of them get screentime or character arcs that don't pidgeonhole them in a stereotype? If you don't think there's a problem, you might want to look again. These problems are psrt of fandom too. Since the media we're celebrating is flawed, it's extremely difficult for us to avoid internlizing the harmful messages that we consume. It's not somehing that can be done passively- it takes real work. Chaka Cumberbatch has been a cosplayer for years, and has been the target of harassment because she cosplays as characters that aren't black like- she is. It's not like she has a lot of options- how many black female characters can you name off the top of your head? Storm, Princess Tiana- she's built some amazing costumes for these characters. But why should Hollywood's diversity problem be hers? The underlying message feels very much like: "This isn't for you, you're not welcome here". Why would anyone want to send that kind of message to a fellow fan? In an interview with HaveYouNerd, she mentioned that even people who didn't overtly exclude her could sometimes make her feel like she didn't belong: "Sometimes, you’ll run into some tokenism, or people will start to get a little too comfortable with you – and it’s always painfully awkward because then it’s like you’re forced to walk this tightrope between sticking up for yourself and forcing the group to have an uncomfortable conversation about race, stereotypes, and why the things they’re saying are problematic. I’ve had times when I was hanging out with a group that was predominately male, that I was accused of “playing the race card,” “overreacting” or “taking things too seriously...” Fandom, we need to do better than this. We need to make our fellow fans of color feel like they're in a safe environment, where they can voice their discomfort and not have their feelings dismissed. Where they can come out and have fun and not worry about being tokenized or harassed. We get so enthusiastic over every new trailer release- why can't we show cosplayers of color the same enthusiasm? We freak out every time nerds are misrepresented in the media, but we can't be bothered to stand up for our fellows when they feel attacked or hurt? And before you say that it's "just about hurt feelings" (like feelings don't matter!?), consider this... On September 10th, 2014, Darren Hunt was shot and killed by the police. While the initial report suggested he had been "lunging towards officers", witnesses and the autopsy confirmed that he had in fact been going in the opposite direction. He was shot in the back. Furthermore,, he was still in costume from a character cosplay. He had a toy sword with him. The police shot an unarmed black man, and they blamed their mistake on his cosplay. Part of making our communities safer needs to include effort to make the WORLD we live in a safer place. It should never be acceptable for the police to recklessly commit homicide like this, but we've seen this story repeating over and over again. Darren Hunt was a fellow fan, but the silence from fan communities was deafening. We're fans. We love heroes in capes that swoop in to save the day when all hope is lost. It's an escape. The thing about escaping into fantasies (like we do with films and comics and tv shows), is that all the problems of the real world follow us there. As nerds and as fans, we have no excuse when we ignore the very real problems our fellows face because of their race (or their gender, their sexuality, or the size of their bodies). Silently ignoring the problem, or taking a "neutral" stance does nothing to help the people endangered by racism. All it does is give more power to those whose actions are deliberately harmful. We as fans need to do so much more to make our communities safer. We need to educate ourselves. We need to demand more diverse guests and panels at our conventions, vocalize your support for fans of color (not talking over them, but listening to their needs and adding your voice to theirs), support writers that are diversifying their work, and advocating for change when the systems that are supposed to be protecting us are applying uneven, brutal force against people of color. We need to listen. If you're still scratching your head, just ask yourself: what would my favorite hero do?
Beginners Guide: Jewellery photography
Jewellery is part of our dressing style and can be called extensions to our outfits. It is essential to understand your jewellery to take the correct pictures. Accessories photography can be tricky and can go wrong if you are not careful enough. Jewellery photography Some basic things need to be ok when doing a jewellery photoshoot. · Natural Light- Lighting is essential in jewellery photography because you will take actual pictures of your jewellery in natural light. Buyers or audience would want to see the true image of the jewellery, and natural light can help you achieve the look. · Background- Another essential thing is background. Make sure you have a stunning set but not too much to take the spotlight from your jewellery. A white backdrop might be your best option for taking amazing jewellery photographs. · Camera- You need to be careful about the camera and lenses you are using. Not every camera takes good pictures. Check your camera quality and make sure you read reviews about the camera before buying it. · Model- If you want to use models for your jewellery, then don't forget to choose those who have significant physical features. A suitable body type would give you the best pictures. An unflattering body might not make your photographs look good. · Stand- When doing a jewellery photoshoot, make sure to have jewellery stands for well-thought pictures. · Package- How you present your ornaments is very important in jewellery photography. People need to feel connected to the item. Here packaging of pieces of jewellery is rather vital. Suppose you are taking a diamond ring’s picture. If you take one of the pictures with the diamond ring in a packaging system it comes, it will look amazing. James Allen packaging provides the finest quality of packaging. · Mannequin- For taking better pictures, you will need the dummy to provide how the pieces of jewellery will look on an actual person if you are not using models. Jewellery photography is highly satisfying if you do it following some guidelines.

Moreover, the market is expected to witness increased traction in 2020-2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic; direct consumer delivery of food products has played a vital role in preventing frequent visits to grocery stores. The majority of the meal-kits market's growth will come from mobile purchases and online, not person shopping connecting meal-kit partnerships with food retailers or other sales channels. Special convenience features, including doorstep delivery and cash-on-delivery, offered by such online-channels has expected to promote the segment growth year on year. These days, meal kits over-index for U.S. households that identify their cooking style as "gourmet cooks," but opportunities exist with young families and singles that enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, which make up roughly 44% of U.S. households. These households are often strapped for time and could entice to purchase with further customization, for example, offering a meal kit with appropriate family portions or exciting new recipes that are also healthy. Covid-19 Impact on the United States Meal Kit Industry: COVID-19 pandemic set a positive impact on the meal-kit industry; due to the strike, meal kits' curiosity increased as people set up to make food themselves at home. Moreover, meal Kits exploded onto the American food outlook in 2012 with the launch of HelloFresh, Blue Apron, and Plated, followed by Home Chef.

What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)
