Destinations all musicians must travel to

ADVERTISEMENT


There isn’t really a day that goes by when we don’t listen to some music, either choosing to play our favorite records or just hearing an advertising jingle on the TV, music is everywhere. It is what we listen to when trying to unwind, get pumped, use as background noise, even cry to. Music is an incredibly powerful art form, some of the biggest artists in the world can touch people’s hearts and become the soundtracks of their lives. Music can perfectly capture the emotions of strife and struggle but at other times can be the catalyst to getting down and boogying. Those who choose to play music are arguably even more passionate about it than others, so we have found some of the best destinations all musicians must visit.

Cavern Club, Liverpool, UK

The Cavern Club in Liverpool is where it all started for rock and roll band The Beatles. They went on to become the biggest band in the world in the ‘60s, but if it wasn’t for the Cavern Club, they might never have made it. Fans of The Beatles can head to the famous club in the city of Liverpool and take in the musical history of the famous venue. Bands play there all day every day so you might even be able to spot the next big thing when you’re inside. The walls are covered in memorabilia from some of the other famous bands that played there, but mostly you’ll want to check out The Beatles stuff.

New Orleans, USA

New Orleans was the birthplace of jazz, so it really is somewhere you’ll have to check out for yourself. The city is obsessed with music, and there are live performances each night in many of the venues along the famous Bourbon Street. Head to New Orleans for the Jazz and Heritage Festival around April and May to really immerse yourself in the jazz culture of this city.

Graceland, Tennessee, USA

If rock and roll is your genre, then you’ll want to check out the King’s home. Graceland is the mansion that the late Elvis Presley lived in up until his death in 1977. Elvis helped to pioneer modern rock and roll by bringing his high-energy rockabilly style to people in the 1950s. Graceland was opened up to fans of the great man in 1982 and, as well as being perfectly preserved the way he left it, Elvis fans can pay their respects to their fallen hero. He was buried on the grounds of Graceland following his death alongside his parents and grandmother.

Carnegie Hall, New York, USA

The great concert venue in New York is a place many musicians strive to play someday. To get a taste of what it would be like to perform on the famous stage, musicians can purchase a concert ticket and see how it’s done. It has been the location for many world premiers of musician’s compositions, and any aspiring classical musician should take in the history of the grand old building with a guided tour before the concert begins.

While there are new genres and styles of music emerging seemingly every day, there can be no denying that people across the world love music. For some, listening is not enough, and they want to play in their own band or solo to emulate their musical heroes. For those that love music, there are some places on Earth that they simply have to visit in their lifetime. We have started you on your musical journey across the world with these destinations.

Feminists Can and Must Demand a Supreme Court Justice Who Answers on Roe

Donald Trump will soon announce his nominee to fill the Supreme Court seat Justice Kennedy will vacate later this month—and women’s rights are at stake.

Trump ran on a platform of outlawing abortion and even once said women who obtain them should be “punished,” and his nominee will come from a list hand-picked by the anti-feminist, right-wing Federalist Society. Trump himself has said that he wouldn’t be asking his nominee about Roe—but his commitment to appointing anti-abortion and otherwise anti-woman judges to the bench at every level of the judiciary is apparent. It is not Trump and his associates or the Republican party members in the Senate who need Justices to disclose and be accountable to their views in hearings—it is the Americans impacted by their regressive interpretations of the law.

Trump has already successfully appointed one far-right Justice: Neil Gorsuch last year assumed the vacated seat of the late Antonin Scalia, which was left open due to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s outright refusal for an entire year to hold hearings on then-President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merick Garland. Gorsuch, who had a record of ruling in favor of corporations and against women’s rights, has already proven to be a staunchly conservative vote on the Court. In hearings, he refused to commit to a stance on Roe or even on Brown v. Board of Education.

A GOP-fostered lack of transparency in Supreme Court candidates has now become the norm—even as the rights of women, people of color and LGBT communities hang in the balance. Linda Greenhouse, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Journalism and lecturer at Yale Law School, argued last week in the New York Times that Justice Gorsuch’s refusal to disclose his stance on past Supreme Court rulings was abnormal—and implores Democrats and Republicans to challenge rhetoric that inquiries about the views of Supreme Court nominees are somehow invasive.

With the future of the court—indeed, of the Constitution as we know it—now at stake, it’s urgent for the senators and the public to understand that Justice Gorsuch’s stonewalling of the Judiciary Committee was not consistent with historical practice and should not be viewed as a norm. Rather, it should be called out for what it was: a derogation of the democratic principle at the heart of Article III of the Constitution, the judiciary article that places the confirmation of life-tenured judicial nominees in the hands of the people’s representatives. Until recently, the modern confirmation process has assumed at least a modicum of substantive engagement between those representatives and the nominee.

Justice Gorsuch and his senatorial enablers based the claim that it would somehow be unethical for him to discuss his own views about the Constitution on something he and others referred to as the “Ginsburg rule.” Supposedly, during her 1993 confirmation hearing, then-Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg refused to give meaningful answers to the senators’ questions. That is a myth. As the current documentary film “RBG” reminds us, she fully embraced the constitutional right to abortion. She was confirmed by a vote of 96 to 3.

Not only is there no “Ginsburg rule,” but the two Republican nominees who came after her, John G. Roberts Jr. and Samuel A. Alito, were both more forthcoming than Justice Gorsuch. While both fenced with the senators about Roe v. Wade and refused to be pinned down, they each accepted the holding in Griswold v. Connecticut, the crucial pre-Roe decision recognizing a right to privacy that gave married couples the constitutional right to contraception. “I feel comfortable commenting on Griswold and the result in Griswold,” then-Judge Roberts told Senator Herb Kohl, a Wisconsin Democrat, during his 2005 hearing, “because that does not appear to me to be an area that is going to come before the court again.” (Let’s hope that’s still the case.)

The foods in Italy you must eat

ADVERTISEMENT


Fancy a vacation in Italy? The European country is famed for its historic sights and rich variety of artwork, but there’s something people love about Italy more than anything else – food. You’ve probably already heard of and tasted some of the best-known foods that the country has to offer. However, you’ve never truly sampled the cuisine until you’ve been to the place it originated from. From pizza to pasta and everything in between, this is what you should be ordering on your next Italian vacation.

Ribollita

It’s ideal to start off an Italian dining experience with a first course, and for that, we would suggest ribollita. This soup is delicious when the vegetables have recently been harvested. The mix of flavors will have you wondering how you ever managed with plain old tomato soup back home. The traditional dish is great for vegetarians because it uses bread rather than meat (unlike American versions of the soup). It’s amazing how much of an effect a change like that can have.

Ossobuco

Follow that soup up with a plate of ossobuco. This dish is a piece of veal shank that’s simmered until it’s at just the right, soft texture. It’s not always easy to find in restaurants because of the long cooking time, so if you spot it on your Italian vacation, then you should take the opportunity to try it out. It’s unlikely you’ll have ever tasted meat quite as tender as this, and it goes great with a gremolata. This is a condiment that combines parsley, garlic, and lemon zest to give your meal a tangy twist. You’re best chance at finding this dish will be in the region of Lombardy, where these kinds of rustic dishes are created all the time.

Truffles

There aren’t many places that serve truffles as a dish. The fungus is certainly a rarity around the world, and thus it’s a delicacy that many people want to try. Lucky for the Italians, then, that truffles grow in several areas across the country. Places like Umbria and Tuscany are no stranger to truffles, and if you visit during the fall, you can sample some of the best dishes they have to offer. You might be wise to start with a dish that is lightly sprinkled with truffles, so that you can get used to the smell and taste. It’s not necessarily for everyone, but if you take a shine to it, your palate will be very appreciative.

Carbonara

You’ll find carbonara served in many Italian restaurants across the States. Just like lasagna or spaghetti bolognese, it’s a fairly standard dish in Italy, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get right. Until you’ve visited Rome and tried one of their carbonaras, you’ll never know what true taste perfection is like. The best restaurants don’t thicken the carbonara sauce or use bacon, instead preferring to cook the simple ingredients in the most delectable combination possible. If there’s anything that’s served in the U.S. you should try in Italy, it’s this. Well, this and pizza. You can’t beat quality Italian pizza.

Gelato

What’s a main course without dessert? Gelato is the sweet treat of choice in Italy, and it’s clear to see why. It contains less fat than ice cream and has more intense flavors too. So, it’s basically a dessert that’s good for you. Okay, maybe we wouldn’t go that far, but you don’t need to make excuses for yourself if you want to have a scoop or two. The only trouble you’ll have is trying to pick what to have. The variety of flavors on display, many of which are made with fresh fruit, are usually so diverse that you’ll struggle to make a decision. We could think of worse ways to spend your time.

Are you hungry now? These delicacies have certainly got our mouths watering, and we’re considering booking ourselves a vacation to Italy. Doesn’t that sound like a good idea?

Why You Must Let Your Voice Be Heard On Trump’s Supreme Court Replacement

The most recent action involving the Supreme Court that’s expected to impact the nation for a generation or more has not been the result of a major decision but rather a resignation.

On Wednesday, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced that he would step down from the nation’s high court—a move that presents President Trump with the opportunity to ideologically remake the bench by solidifying a predictably conservative majority to rule on a range of issues critical to American life.

Why should you be concerned?

The effect on the legal landscape will be seismic. it will affect every case that comes before the court—from immigration status and reproductive rights to workplace inclusion and voting rights—for decades to come. It’s evident from the response to this development that it serves as a political windfall for Republicans as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell immediately stated that the GOP “will vote to confirm Justice Kennedy’s successor” in advance of the midterms, making the declaration even before Trump has reviewed a possible replacement.

A Reagan appointee who served for 30 years, Kennedy was considered a swing vote on a number of key cases. For example, he disappointed archconservatives for positions that tended to place him closer to the center. For example, he wrote the ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in 2015, joined opposing justices against the death penalty in 2005 and was among those who upheld Roe v. Wade in 1992. However, don’t overlook the fact that he sided with conservative justices on the court’s 14 most recent decisions.

Judging by his lower court selections, Trump will most certainly pick a hardline conservative to fill the vacancy and join Chief Justice Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch, the president’s first appointment to the Supreme Court. As observers have noted Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer, both consistent liberals on the court, are 85 and 79, respectively, and potentially represent near-term successor opportunities for the administration to significantly diminish any progressive dissent within chambers.

Justifiably, progressives view the scenario as a means to erode the current civil rights agenda as well as a judicial fiat of the continuation of Trump’s largely unchecked presidential authority. As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the 14th amendment, which guarantees all citizens “equal protection under the law” and has served as the basis for landmark Supreme Court decisions to ensure basic rights, one only has to look to the Supreme Court decisions this month to realize the further rollback of rights that will leave all Americans unprotected, especially people of color. In this month alone, the high court’s current conservative-leaning configuration engaged in a series of restrictive rulings that included allowing Ohio to employ aggressive policies to purge voting rolls and open the door for other states to impose similar measures; validation of the redrawing of electoral maps in Texas and North Carolina that critics argue will serve to discriminate against minority voters; weakening public sector labor unions and, in turn, disproportionately hurting large numbers of black workers when it deemed unconstitutional a requirement for non-union workers to pay collective bargaining fees; and permitting the Trump administration to continue its anti-Muslim travel ban that limits entry from seven countries including Iran, North Korea, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, and Venezuela.

So what can you do?

NAACP Legal Defense Fund President and Director-Counsel Sherrilyn A. Ifill provides an answer.

In a statement, Ifill cited that Kennedy proved to be “an important moderating force on issues ranging from LGBT rights to abortion and affirmative action” whose presence on the Court will be missed. She further asserted that “we can have no confidence that President Trump will present a nominee with a record of commitment to racial equality and justice. And so every American must invest themselves in ensuring that Congress does its job—which in this case, means not considering any nominee this year, and voting down any nominee who does not represent the ideals of our democracy or is otherwise unqualified to serve on the highest court in our nation.”

To ensure that the Senate engages in its “advise and consent” power to ensure Kennedy’s successor will “uphold the rule of law and equal rights for all Americans” she advocates that you contact U.S. Senators and demand that the incoming Senate—those for whom Americans will vote for in the midterms—gain the opportunity to vote for the confirmation of the next Supreme Court justice.

I agree that we cannot sit on the sidelines. We must take action. It will not be easy but we must constantly prod our representatives and make our voices heard.

To take a chapter from history, in 1987, Reagan nominated Robert Bork, considered an “ideological extremist” replacement for Lewis F. Powell Jr., another retiring, swing-voting justice. The nomination of Bork, who was considered unqualified and had derided judicial redress to racial discrimination as being “wrong,” ignited a firestorm of protest among civil rights organizations, women’s groups, and students, among others, as well as full-throated condemnations from Democrats and other progressive politicians. The result was that the nomination was rejected in committee, political support had evaporated and the confirmation was ultimately scuttled.

The replacement nominee for the Supreme Court: Justice Anthony Kennedy.

‘Hereditary’ Review: A Punishing Horror Film That Must Be Seen

Horror is often viewed as a genre that exists only to entertain. Some audiences watching a horror movie only want a thrilling experience that allows them the fun of being scared with none of the actual danger that fear represents. Hereditary shirks that approach and delivers a horror experience that is genuinely uncomfortable. This isn’t a fun time at the movies.

That doesn’t mean it isn’t necessary viewing. Because it is.

Emotional Horror


hereditary funeral
Steve (Gabriel Byrne) and Charlie (Milly Shapiro) attend Ellen's funeral.

Hereditary centers around the Graham family shortly after the death of the family matriarch, Ellen. Her daughter Annie (Toni Collette) is trying to cope with the loss. She’s afraid of the mental disorders she’s possibly inherited from her mother and she’s starting to sense a presence in her old home. There’s also Steve (Gabriel Byrne), Annie’s sympathetic but frustrated husband, and their two children Peter (Alex Wolff) and Charlie (Milly Shapiro).

Much like The Exorcist and Rosemary’s BabyHereditary isn’t a film that is centered around big jump scares. Instead, it focuses on intensely emotional moments to drive home its feelings of terror and dread. This is a film where people reacting to a tragedy is as skin-crawling as a possible specter lurking in the shadows. A lot of credit goes to the superb cast, especially Toni Collette who gives a performance worthy of all the awards.

Nightmare Logic


hereditary dollhouse
Annie (Toni Collette) builds miniature dollhouse models that reflect moments in her life.

Another impressive element of Hereditary is its ability to present surreal imagery without coming across as pretentious or obtuse. For example, there are multiple times in the film where a strange light pulses across the screen. We aren’t told what this light is but we get a sense of its intention. It’s off-putting and bizarre but not in a non-sensical way. Because of this, it feels both creepy and strangely understandable.

And just wait until the movie ramps up as it heads towards its climax. The levels of hysteria and insanity in Hereditary reach such a fever pitch that you start to feel as if you’re going mad. Considering the film is using its story as a metaphor for mental illness — particularly dementia — this is an appropriate escalation. And boy, it works too well. By the end of the film, it feels like you’ve woken up from a nightmare.

Characters You Cry For


hereditary family
The Graham family is not alright.

Honestly, the strongest part of Hereditary is its success in creating truly human characters. The Grahams feel achingly real. You’ve known these people and they are probably in your family. What’s great is that none of them are heroes or villains. They are just people. That means they have interesting qualities — Annie is an artist who makes miniature models — and believable flaws. There are moments of devastation and danger that will have you gasping for these people. That’s powerful.

And it bears repeating: the actors in this are at the top of their game. Toni Collette is doing work that most will pass off as pure histrionics. Those people would be missing how gut-wrenching her character’s perspective is during the film. Her reactions and fears come across at completely genuine. And young Alex Wolff has a difficult job in presented Peter as an apathetic teen whose relationship with his mother is more disturbing than we first know. Plus, young newcomer Milly Shapiro is the secret, sad heart of Hereditary and she demonstrates an emotional intelligence that few child actors ever reach.

The Nitpick

Okay, so there is one thing about Hereditary that doesn’t quite click but it’s not possible to talk about in depth without spoilers. So, in the interest of keeping this review spoiler-free, we’ll just say that Hereditary is very vague with its motives for most of the film. It’s towards the end that an explanation begins to take shape. And honestly, it feels somewhat out-of-place for the movie you’ve been watching.

It doesn’t sink the film at all but it does try and give a clear-cut reason for the supernatural shenanigans going on. The film works without this explanation and that’s a testament to its narrative strength. The ending actually makes things more confusing by trying to give a somewhat easier answer. It works but it’s not nearly as interesting as when things were kept unknown.

Is Hereditary Good?

Full of nightmarish imagery and emotional terror, Hereditary has the makings of a horror classic. There is true evil lurking inside this film. The acting is superb, the atmosphere is unsettling, and the tension is nigh unbearable. When it comes to making an unabashedly horrifying experience, writer/director Ari Aster has knocked it out of the park. See this immediately but don’t expect to sleep well that night.

Excuse This Disruption: #MeToo Must Not Neglect Race

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s political fire turned into smoldering ruins last week as allegations by his former partners of emotional, physical, verbal and sexual abuse came to light in an article in The New Yorker. It is now clear that the former head of law enforcement for New York state strategically assumed the rhetoric of the gender equity and justice movements for political gain—while in private, according to the allegations, his behavior consisted of intimate partner violence that derived from exercising unequal power and control to the point of physical assault and emotional abuse.

Since the news has broken, the analysis of his alleged behavior has rightfully been framed within the lens of domestic and sexual violence—but it is important that we do not ignore the racial elements in the allegations against Scheniderman.

Tanya Selvaratnam, a Sri Lankan artist and activist, claims that he called her a “brown slave,” forced her to say that she was his property and hit her until she complied. This behavior hearkens back to the painful colonial past that many South Asians carry with them, and reflects the belief that white people are racially superior to brown and black people.

This moment is a pivotal one for our movement: Schneiderman’s racism should provoke just as much disgust and demand for accountability as his misogyny.

Undoubtedly, the cosmic shift occurring in our national socio-political landscape by way of #MeToo and #TimesUp is refreshing. Collectively, we are exhuming and ripping open the fastened coffins of abuse and sexual violence. But in spite of the presence of and need for active participation in these social movements, they do not offer an identifiable space for a significant segment of survivors. For women who do not occupy positions of power or privilege, much of this has been a conversation that is unrelated to their lives.

The experiences of women of color in situations of abuse do not occur in gender silos—and our movements for social change must not treat race and gender separately. It is not a far stretch to wonder whether Selvaratnam would have been believed without additional narratives by a white woman against the same powerful man. For women of color, speaking up and coming forward can be extremely dangerous—we are often not believed, and we face a brunt of victim-blaming.

During this moment of reflection, it is necessary to hold a mirror to our unified face to share the complexity of the allegations against Schneiderman. The experiences of survivors cannot be sanitized in a gendered construct; in fact, overtly being viewed as “other” is yet another thread in the narrative of sexual violence. Limited frameworks for these revelations and conversations only perpetuate the racism, sexism and classism that has deeply saturated the fabric of our culture and divides our collective experiences.

The very nature of a survivor is to be resilient; to face adversity in spite of challenge. We can stand with them by putting structures in place that stop them from experiencing any additional abuse. In order to do so in this moment, we must support survivors beyond listening to their stories—and acknowledge the racial impact of violence.

Kavita Mehra is Executive Director of Sakhi for South Asian Women.

Women Will Keep Speaking Out—And The World Must Keep Listening

I know where the Weinsteins and Cosbys of this world come from. I know one personally.

A few years back, a student at the school I attended, and now work for, raped another student, who I am also related to, and stalked me and my young daughters.

I didn’t hesitate to speak up. I detailed my experiences in police reports. I attempted to get a restraining order—twice—on behalf of my daughters and myself. I talked to my colleagues, the security department, the president of the school and pretty much anyone who would listen about the concerns I had for the safety for my family as well as for the students and faculty at his new school. I even wrote about them for Ms.

But while he was expelled for the sexual assault, that same student continued to come back to campus until the police got involved; eventually, he easily transferred to another school close by, where his parents are alum and his father teaches. I was denied both of those restraining orders. And it wasn’t until after he was arrested for indecent assault of a minor and banned from yet another campus that victims from the student’s second school started to come forward to publicly tell their stories.

These women’s stories were the same: The same student had raped them. They had reported it to campus police. The administration had done nothing. They had been speaking out for years—but it was not enough to keep them or their peers safe. A rapist was thus allowed to remain on campus, growing his list of victims year after year.

His arrest was a turning point, an incredible #MeToo moment of relief and grief, the formation of a group none of us wants to be a part of. Just like when we are growing up and told not to go out alone, women still find safety and strength in numbers. We find ourselves a bit braver, our voice a little louder and our hearts a little stronger because we are able to see that the fight is no longer just about ourselves.

Having seen campus rapists like Brock Turner walk out of jail after just a few months, I can’t say I had ever put much faith in the criminal justice system to handle this case. Unfortunately, the system proved me right. The accused student was out on bail but monitored with an ankle bracelet, and the case never even made it to trial—dismissed due to “lack of prosecution.” The arc of justice rested solely on the shoulders of a child.

What comes next for that student and for his victims remains to be seen. I have asked the same question over and over: not if but when will be the next time. Will this young man in his mid-twenties attempt to go back to college for the third time to finish his degree? Will he choose another underage victim? Am I and my daughters still at risk? How many women will be hurt before he is held accountable? I have no answers, but I refuse to be silent in the meantime.

Some women do not speak out because they are not yet ready. Some choose not to. Some are threatened by their perpetrators. Shame is strong, and typically those who are being accused have more power than their accusers. In many ways, our culture discourages truth-telling and accountability—after all, no one wants to known that the producer who makes their favorite movies, or, in my case, the successful pastor and family counselor’s son they once trusted, is capable of heinous things. Unconsciously, and perhaps consciously at times, we would rather reject victims because they threaten our sense of safety and security—we would rather not believe them, and go on believing we are safe instead.

It is a false sense of security that sexual assault and harassment “couldn’t happen here,” perpetrated by people we know and might even like. In rejecting the narratives of victims, we reject the truth—and put ourselves and those we love further at risk.

Women speak out anyway, against all odds. Women report sexual harassment and assault even when their job may be on the line. Women go to the police even when they know they may not be believed. Women go through the grueling process of investigations and trials, reliving their pain and trauma, even though they know the system might fail them. Women speak out against powerful men only to have their reputation questioned and their character maligned. Women have spoken when no one is listening and women have spoken when the whole world is listening.

A narrative persists that women who come forward about sexual harassment or assault years after the crimes are doing so out of malice—perhaps for financial or political motivations. If the #MeToo moment we’re experiencing has taught us anything, it’s how badly we must scrub that narrative from our canon. If we scrutinized the accused as thoroughly as we do the accuser, we might actually get somewhere in changing the culture and systems that have allowed this conduct to go on for far too long.

Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby have over 80 accusers each, with allegations spanning decades. These men, and other men like them, do not just come from nowhere. Rather, the constant failure to hold them accountable leaves a wide and long path of destruction in their wake.

Their victims, along with many other survivors, are speaking out right now. Listen to them, and let them know that you believe them. It just may be the push we need to make this moment a tipping point.

Things anyone must do when traveling abroad

ADVERTISEMENT


It’s important to travel and see the world as much as possible. They say travel broadens the mind and enriches the soul, and they’re absolutely right. It’s essential to experience all forms of cultures and customs, and find out how diverse and different our world can be sometimes. If you’re planning to jet off to some faraway land, you need to make sure you go with some idea of what you’re going to face.

Yes, traveling abroad is a good thing, an essential thing even, but it can also be perilous. You have to prepare for where you’re going, and make sure you know a little about the area. When it comes time for your vacation, you want to get the most amount of enjoyment possible from it. So, here are a few of the key things to consider when it comes to traveling abroad – consider this your Bible!

Be sensible

It’s so important that you are sensible when traveling abroad. Don’t forget that many countries in the world have different customs and cultures to what you might be used to, and you have to make sure you use common sense. Be careful about who you let into your life, and understand that not everyone who’s being nice is being nice for the sake of it. As a tourist, you might be an attractive prospect for criminal behavior, so be on your guard. Most places you will be fine, you’ve just got to be careful about the people you encounter.

Educate yourself about the local culture

Make an effort to educate yourself about the culture of a specific country or people. This is important for helping you understand and appreciate the country you’re visiting much more. It will also help you out if you don’t know the language. Some things that are considered appropriate in your culture may not be appropriate in others, and you need to figure this out. Also, if you’re abroad, you want to experience the culture of a new place and immerse yourself fully – that’s how you have an unforgettable experience. Oh, and, if possible, learning a bit of the language will help as well.

Always check in with someone

Being careful and vigilant is important, and one of the best ways of doing that is to make sure you always check in with somebody. Each day make sure you call or message someone and let them know how your day was, and that you’re okay. This is a good way of helping you to stay safe and means that if anything happens, and you miss a day, people will have an idea of where you are. Checking in with someone is safe and sensible, but also lets you share your adventure and experience with others.

Going on vacation should be a fun and exciting experience, and you want to make the most of it. That means completely embracing another country or continent, and experiencing things you would never be able to experience at home. These are some of the important things you absolutely must do when you travel abroad. They will help you to stay safe, blend in, and share your wonderful adventures with others as well.

NBA Issues a Memo Reminding Players and Coaches They MUST Stand During the National Anthem, Per League Rules [Video]

The NBA sent a memo late Friday to teams reinforcing its existing rule that players and coaches are to stand for the national anthem.

The memo also suggested other ways in which those who chose to might address the recent protest movement sweeping across the NFL and other sports.

via ESPN:

The memo, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN, was distributed by deputy commissioner Mark Tatum. It instructs teams that “the league office will determine how to deal with any possible instance in which a player, coach, or trainer does not stand for the anthem.”

The memo states that individual teams “do not have the discretion to waive” the rule that players, coaches and staff stand for the anthem. The league has the discretion to discipline players who violate the rule. It is not clear if the league would exercise it in the event of any protest. The league also does not want teams independently disciplining players, sources say, and has encouraged open dialogue within teams.

In the memo, Tatum suggests teams might address the current political climate by having players and coaches give a joint pregame address at their first home games.

“This could include a message of unity and how the team is committed to bringing the community together this season,” the memo states.

The memo also suggests teams might prepare a video tribute or public service announcement featuring “team leadership speaking about the issues they care about.”

The memo comes a day after commissioner Adam Silver said he expects players to stand for the national anthem.

Do you think any players will challenge the rule?

We Must Confront Gendered Violence in War to Achieve Peace in Afghanistan

“During times of conflict, men and women experience war different,” Megan Corrado wrote for Ms. in July, delineating the need to include women at the negotiation table in Afghanistan. “These [gendered] traumas impact every aspect of the social fabric and must be recognized in the creation of accountability and reconciliation mechanisms in peace agreements.”

Resolute Media / Creative Commons

Later in August, Suzie Abdou critiqued the Trump administration’s new “path forward” in Afghanistan by pointing out how current U.S. foreign policy fails to consider—no less protect the rights of—Afghan women, while Leila Milani urged the U.S. government to stop ignoring gender when constructing foreign policy.

More recently, Miguel Howe and Farhat Popal reported at The Hill about the gendered violence of war and why centering Afghan women in post-war efforts is vital for creating sustained peace and equality:

Importantly, Afghan women’s inclusion in the process of building this future is essential to the effectiveness of peacebuilding, and advancing security interests. Evidence shows that women improve the process and outcomes of peace talks by promoting dialogue and trust, bridging divides and mobilizing coalitions, raising issues that are vital for peace, and prioritizing gender equality. Gender equality and women’s economic empowerment are also strongly tied to prosperous and peaceful societies.

Unfortunately, a 2014 study by Oxfam found that in 23 rounds of peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban since 2005, only one woman from the government was present on two occasions. No women have been included in discussions between international negotiators and the Taliban, and it is unclear if, or to what extent, women’s interests were represented by others.

These pieces suggest the importance of recognizing the gendered nature of war, specifically the heightened violence women experience at the hands of both the state and patriarchal norms, and call on the Trump administration to include women in (re)building process. After all, Afghan women should be the architects of their own futures.

Currently living in East LA, she is taking a gap year from Pitzer College where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Political Studies and Sociology.

‘Detroit’ Tells A Gruesome, Horrifying Story That Must Be Seen

Detroit

Detroit is a powerful film that uncovers a series of events that led to the killing of three unarmed, black teenage boys by white police officers. The movie is set during the 1967 Detroit riots, where outraged communities destroyed public and private property in protest against unjust social and economic conditions in the Motor City.

Rather than digging into the impact of the riots, a large portion of the film is spent recounting the real-life horror that a group of young black men and white women experienced inside of the Algiers Motel on July 25, 1967. Police believed that a sniper was hiding out in the motel and tried to force the victims into a confession by viciously interrogating and beating them. These scenes of brutality are severely uncomfortable and raw to the point of nausea. By the end of the movie, I (and others I watched the film with) was left feeling angry and unresolved, especially in light of the recent acts of police violence against black bodies in the age of smartphones. Still, that didn’t deter me from seeing the film twice. For me, the film was a painful reminder of why we cannot forget, neglect, or trivialize the systems of oppression that continue to kill African Americans. It exposes the grit of racism in a way that cannot be erased from memory and reinforces the need for us to fight for freedom. It also gives voice to the real-life victims—Carl Cooper, 17, Fred Temple, 18, and Aubrey Pollard, 19—who never received justice.

In an interview with Black Enterprise, actor John Boyega talked about his role in the movie as Melvin Dismukes, the black security guard who volunteered to assist police in finding the sniper at the Algiers. Nevertheless, he found himself in a compromising position that night, feeling helpless while watching the brutality.

“I relate to the character in a sense that he is a man that is open to several different perspectives, he’s open to several different views,” said Boyega, who starred in Star Wars. “He was a working man, but at the same time was pushed into a situation in which he was trying to protect other black men.” He added that Dismukes “had to kind of stand up to racial injustice but in a very subtle and depressing way.”

 

BE also spoke to actors Algee Smith and Jason Mitchell who talked about how hard it was to make the film due to its heavy context.

“It affected me a lot,” said Smith. “We had a hard time decompressing, I had a hard time letting that go [once] leaving the set.” “It was uncomfortable,” added Mitchell. “Sometimes you just need an emotional draining to let it out.”

 

 

“Detroit” is currently playing in theaters around the country.

Bikini Fit Hacks: 3 Things You Must Do as Soon You Put on Your Swimsuit

By Leah Melby, Glamour

2015-06-09-1433884111-5945457-Belussobikiniswimstringbikiniw724.jpg

According to bathing suit expert Kirsten Sarkisian, you never put on a bikini top only once. “First, you put it on–simply put it on your body,” the founder of Belusso swimwear tells Glamour, “but do not assume it’s ready to go at this point.”

Here’s why a perfect-fitting suit can require a little bit of adjusting–and three easy steps to making sure everything is shimmied into place.

Per Sarkisian, getting the perfect fit can be broken down into three quick steps.

1. Right away, handle the straps, making them tighter or looser so that they feel secure but aren’t digging into your skin.

2. Then, manually arrange your breasts by picking them up and pulling them gently toward the center of your torso–they should be fully enclosed by the structure of the bikini top.

3. Finish by checking yourself in a mirror to see if the top is riding up too high in the back or on the sides and make slight coordinating adjustments to the straps.

If you find you’re rarely pleased with how your curves look in a bikini, there could be a sneaky suspect to blame.

“Padding can sag when it gets wet and takes longer to dry than the rest of the suit,” Sarkisian said. “A suit with a little bit of it can be a good call for women with smaller breasts, but beware. Look for suits with removable pads so you can pull it out if need be.”
