Your skin is the largest organ in your body. They are worse, the ANC, because it is people like us: Africans. I have written a length about this motley crew of cabals that dominate the ANC, and the ‘Corruption Debate’?! above, is more like watching the ANC spokesman’s mealy mouthing his way out of the shenanigans of the ANC, lying, obfuscating, distorting and seamlessly trying to present the ANC as a viable Government Other Tape on Apartheid, is covering Apartheid from the 1950s just to get a flavor of what do we means by Apartheid. “Regardless of our understanding of the diverse ways in which European system of education typically failed African people, Africans continue to be dependent on the European approach; an approach that carries no high expectations of us.

In the lead up to Inauguration Day 2021, fashion designers remained relatively quiet about the outfits that we’d see on our new president and vice president. As it turned out, Joe Biden collaborated with Ralph Lauren on a suit for his swearing-in ceremony, reportedly made at Rochester Tailored Clothing in Rochester, NY. Ralph Lauren, a nonpartisan American brand, has been a go-to for both the president and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden at past events. Meanwhile, Jill has turned to sustainable designer Gabriela Hearst, as well as Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim of Oscar de la Renta, during the campaign, and chose to champion emerging talent in Markarian for her husband’s inauguration.

Joe Biden è il nuovo Presidente degli Stati Uniti d'America e oggi è finalmente arrivato il giorno dell'insediamento. Con la sua elezione il Paese accoglie anche la nuova First Lady che lo accompagnerà durante il suo mandato.

When it comes to practicing yoga, wearing a comfortable and supportive outfit is key to help you flow through your poses seamlessly and harmoniously. I honestly never gave my sports outfits too much thought until I started up yoga again a few months ago and realized just how uncomfortable I felt in my sports bra! (Not exactly the most convenient to get through an hour of intense poses). So today I wanted to hone in on some of the best yoga bras out there to keep us feeling comfortable and supported (while still looking stylish) so we can reap all the physical and mental benefits yoga has to offer.
To get more insight, I tapped into New York–based yoga instructor Phyllicia Bonanno, who practices yoga seven days a week—sometimes with longer flows and sometimes with meditation or breathing exercises. “Yoga is part of my daily lifestyle and … Read the rest
“I tend to have rose-coloured glasses when looking at the industry,” says Toronto-based journalist and Electric Runway founder, Amanda Cosco. Her view of the fashion world is not only positive but global and multi-dimensional, as she’s provided insight into how technology is changing fashion for over five years on her innovative and informational platform.
After exiting 2020 – a year that saw virtual runway shows across the globe, a huge bump in e-commerce consumption, and consumers’ awareness of their carbon footprint at an all-time high – it’s no surprise that she’s feeling optimistic about the future of fashion.

Fashion is a hot issue and clothing of various types are on the rise. As with any minority peoples, there is also the creolization of the native tongues upon the merging of different cultures. Rushdie describes how he and his siblings were able to cleverly amalgamate their native tongue and the language and meanings of the dominant culture to describe the adults they encountered. As a result, they came up with cute names to fit the characters of these persons. The other male tenants in his father’s building he conveniently referred to as Maharaja P and Maharaja B. In Hindi, Maharaja means prince.” Because Rushdie referred to them as princes, one would immediately assume that these were unmarried men of means. Just so happens, Maharaja P was a sporting man” of some royal lineage and Maharaja B was a businessman of questionable character. He nicknamed his nanny Certainly-Mary” because of … Read the rest
On the eve of Joe Biden’s inauguration, Biden and incoming vice president Kamala Harris attended a ceremony to honor COVID-19 victims. They were joined by their spouses at the Lincoln Memorial, where 400 lights illuminated around the reflecting pool to represent the 400,000 Americans who have died from the virus. As Kamala delivered a speech paying tribute to the lives lost and calling for the nation to begin healing together, she wore a Pyer Moss coat that also held significance.
When hospitals were experiencing a dire shortage of PPE at the beginning of the pandemic, Kerby Jean-Raymond, the Haitian-American designer and founder behind fashion label Pyer Moss, quickly converted his New York office into a donation center and donated $5,000 to purchase masks and gloves. The designer also set aside $50,000 for minority and women-owned small creative businesses that were distressed by COVID-19. The vice president-elect’s purposeful decision to … Read the rest
