“A Star is Born: Encore” Review

Following the film’s accolades this most recent awards season, A Star is Born has been re-released in theaters for a short period as an encore. The new version features twelve additional minutes of footage as a gift to the fans. This bode well for particular fans, such as myself, who have seen the original version of the film about seven times. For people like me, these extra twelve minutes were anxiously awaited and warmly welcomed. I was initially curious as to how the extra minutes would be

This Is Why You Should Get To Know Iza

There are two factors that contribute for the non-engagement of celebrities in social issues in Brazil. The first of these is discrimination, which prevent, for example, black people from not reaching visibility in the media. The second one is that, because of the media, the rising became so simple that is not mandatory to have a story beyond the superficial. However, Iza is an example of an artist who overcome this adversities and became known for her talent and actions. Thinking about it, tho

5 Tips On How To Make Your Own Successful ‘New Year’s List’

A new year arrives and, with it, it became very common to draw up a wishlist to have healthier habits, find people you haven't seen in a long time, do something for the first time and learn new things in the new year that’s arriving. This practice can be very healthy if we think of individual targets and not just generic activities, so it is necessary to set different goals for different people.

“BlacKkKlansman”: The Most Important Film Of The Year

Spike Lee, director known for addressing racism in his films, once again surprised to talk about the ideology of white supremacy, in the U.S. in mid-1970, in the film BlacKkKlansman. The story is based on real facts experienced by Ron Stallworth (John David Washington), one of the only black police officers in the country who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan through phone calls and had one of their white profession partners, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), to act as himself on in-person meetings.

I Tried It: Bamboo Toothbrushes

Let me start this by saying I have an Amazon addiction. If I find something interesting or trendy on Amazon, chances are that I will buy it. I recently bought Bamboozled’s 8-pack of bamboo toothbrushes (supposed to last for a family, or over a year for a single person). Bamboozled reports, “1 billion plastic toothbrushes are disposed of every year in the U.S., producing 50,000,000 pounds of waste [in landfills and oceans].” The Giving Brush blog notes increased pollution, battery leakage from el

Opinion: What Happened With The New Collection Of Celine on PFW?

Everybody knows that Celine always had a very, very specific aesthetic. And Hedi Slimane debut wasn’t that successful, as he changed the brand’s logo, deleted all the images prior to his version of Instagram and launched the brand a first bag, with a footprint very similar to Kelly -- iconic piece of Hermès. For the Paris La Nuit collection, he left the beige, ignoring the fluidity of the oversized pieces and the importance of the accessories of Celine.The collection showed the same footprint t

Mugabe, Mnangagwa and the MDC: A New Hope or the Empire Strikes Back?

As the Movement for Democratic Change challenges the recent election result in court after the ZANU PF victory and protestors take to Harare’s streets, tensions run high in Zimbabwe. With hope raised both locally and internationally about the prospects of a free and democratic Zimbabwe, investors have started to withdraw their praise for the emergent economy after Emmerson Mnangagwa won the election. Zimbabweans are suspicious that the ZANU PF won yet again despite Mugabe’s 37 year dictatorship

Long Hair x Short Hair: Which One Should You Pick?

Hair greatly influences a woman's look and tells a lot about her personality. Regardless of whether it is short, long, smooth or curly, to keep it beautiful, shining and well moisturized, you must be careful. Versatility and better adaptation to various types of face, are among the positive points of who chose to be a "Rapunzel".

You Call Yourself a Feminist

You call yourself a feminist but you don't recognize other identities that play into marginalization. You call yourself a feminist yet you mock guys who aren't “manly enough.” You call yourself a feminist and fight for women to be dominant over men. You call yourself a feminist but do not consider Trans Women to be a part of the feminist discourse. You call yourself a feminist while calling other women sluts, whores, bitches, and hoes.

Consent: Is it Really That Hard to Understand?

What’s so hard about consent? Is it the verbal yes? Just ask. Is it gauging the excitement level of the other party? Just ask. Is it the awkwardness of asking someone if what you’re doing with their body is okay? Just ask. I’m at a loss for why we’re still talking about consent, mainly because I’m at a loss for why people don’t understand consent when it comes to sex. There’s really only one answer that actually means someone is giving their consent, but here are various examples of consent giv

The Journey

My relationship with Wyoming has evolved from disgruntled to love. Sounds strange and unhealthy, right? Yes and no. Tears were shed, laughs were had, and ultimately I’m better for moving to little ol’ Laramie. I can’t say “I’ve found myself,” but I can say I have a better idea of what I want and the type of people I want in my life. I came to the University of Wyoming not thinking about any of the implications of moving to Wyoming. I really just wanted to go to college away from my parents and

Being Black in Laramie: What it's Really Like

When I decided to come to the University of Wyoming, my parents joked about the lack of black people in Laramie. Little did I know, I would have stories for every family get-together for the next four years. If I’m being completely honest, I could write for days about being black in Laramie, and most of it would be funny. Fortunately for you, I picked the encounters I usually laugh about with my friends and family. “So, you’re on the basketball team?”/“What sport do you play?” Questions like t

Social Justice: The Gay Agenda

We were reminded this weekend by Sam Smith's acceptance speech that even though the Oscar's were #SoWhite, our society is still #SoStraight. Especially our little, humble state. A not-so-surprising news flash, Wyoming is conservative (and I don’t mean like that dress your grandma wants you to wear to church for confirmation). Laramie provides that little bit of blue to spice up the flavor of Wyoming, which in all honesty provides as much spice as a pinch of salt. I’m not opposed to the conserva

Don't Apologize for Your Feelings

Don’t apologize for your feelings. Life happens and situations change causing feelings to shift. Don’t apologize for expressing your feelings. Sometimes we all need to cry, laugh, journal, dance, run, scream, sing. Don’t apologize for sharing a very raw piece of yourself. Cry when you need to cry. Be angry when you’re angry. But on the other side of the coin, show your joy. There’s something contagious about joy and happiness. Don’t apologize for your successes. Don’t apologize for your failures

An Open Letter to Professionals in Student Affairs

Student Affairs, not necessarily the piece of college experiences people immediately think of when considering a college. The professionals who work in student affairs basically spend their careers helping students succeed, even if that means success outside of the classroom. Of course all of us who attend college want to succeed in the classroom, but the course we take in college doesn’t always result in academic success. Naturally, our desire for academic success plays a role in what we do in

3 Extremely Empowered Young Female Celebs You Should Be Following

She is best known for starting the punk rock band Cherry Glazerr at the ripe age of fifteen, so clearly a major badass.

3 Self-Care Priorities There's No Shame in Being Bougie About

Because it feels good to look good. In high school I did most of my shampoo and hair product shopping at CVS, buying Pantene, Herbal Essences- the usual. When my mom took me to her hair salon during my senior year, one of the hair stylists convinced me to buy a shampoo from the salon that was on the pricier side. After using it just once, the difference in texture and shine was impeccable. Changing up your hair creates a completely different look, and who doesn’t love the feel of super softness

3 Albums to Get You Hyped to Both Work Hard and Play Hard

I used to think that hardcore rap music was only for getting hyped to go out on Friday nights after a long week. However, when you’re waking up at 7 AM to edit an essay that you’ve already been working on for three straight days, you need something more than strong coffee to get you wired and “excited” enough to actually focus. Similar to getting hyped to go out or participate in a sporting event, we all have our realm we go into when we’re hardcore studying; you know, the kind of haven’t-looked

My Experience of Learning Front Splits

A split (middle and front) is by far one of the most timeless physical positions. It doesn't matter whether you practice it to strengthen your legs and develop deep body awareness or just to boast about a new skill in front of some friends: discipline and commitment are a must to reach up your split goal. Having a background in gymnastics, dancing and yoga, it took me a month of continuous exercise to finally achieve front splits (middle split - my next goal) and be super proud of it. However,
