You’re not hearing about Guatemala’s biggest issues

While there’s no shortage of coverage on the root causes of migration from Guatemala and its neighbors from an American perspective, the country’s most urgent causes for concern hardly get the attention they deserve from Western press.

The march of podcast consolidation continues. Is Stitcher next on the chopping block? Liberty Media’s SiriusXM bough the company in 2020 in the wake of it’s 2018 purchase of Pandora, and just merged the advertising arms of both into a new company called SXM Media.

What People Forget About When Shopping for a Pair of Glasses

What People Forget About When Shopping for a Pair of Glasses If you find this article, there’s a high chance that you’ve already read a bunch of tips or suggestions from other articles telling you this or that regarding choosing a pair of glasses. Most of them, if not all, must be suggesting that a certain glasses frame is better suited for a certain type of face. For example, someone with a square face has to wear the round glasses to reduce the angular shape of their face, or if they have a r

I Eat the Flesh of Fatphobic Men

Listen up, men. I know you hate women like me. I know that when I unhinge my jaw to eat an entire bagel slathered in Nutella, it makes your gut churn and riles up your gag reflex. I know that when I have the audacity to feed my hungry stomach with some Little Caesar’s double-stuffed crust pepperoni pizza, you are armed and ready to step in and save the skinny damsels in distress from my promotion of obesity. I know you’re absolutely convinced that I’m the real danger to the minds of young girls

Manusia Tidak Pernah Puas: Obsesi, Like, Cuan Ajang menjadi terkenal di media sosial

Sekilas banyaknya like diaggap sebagai keberhasilan dalam menarik perhatian. Namun ternyata like yang diberikan oleh orang lain bisa dikarenakan adanya timbal balik yang terbentuk antara mereka dengan kita. Kita sering berfikir bahwa ketika teman terdekat memberikan like pada salah satu postingan kita, maka di waktu yang akan datang kita secara otomatis juga akan memberikan like pada postingan mereka. Tidak peduli postingan itu menarik atau tidak. Andjie Santosoputro mengangkat fenomena like in

Ironically a sparkling cheerful chirping, melodiously informs about the guests arrived; with a dewy of happiness inside!

UX Case Study: bringing your yoga practice closer than ever

Hi there! Time for a third project at IronHack! I did this project alone, with the help and support of my buddy, Arantja Rosalina. Scope of the project: analyze an already existing and highly adopted app and incorporate a new feature into the existing product. The feature should be based on user research and should be an area of functionality to be explored. I chose the Down Dog app for Android, the app I use to practice yoga. The opportunity was clear for me: improving people's lives by conn

ETERNALS - Review

Chloe Zhao’s or maybe Marvel’s Eternals, a heavily rushed superhero drama where visuals alone stand out to be a masterpiece. IMDB SYNOPSIS: The Eternals, a race of immortal beings with superhuman powers who have secretly lived on Earth for thousands of years, reunite to battle the evil Deviants. Chloe Zhao directed this film after winning an Academy Award for best director for her previous film ‘NOMADLAND’, and this created a debate between different types of audiences.

Vitamin C Serum: Is it the real deal?

Vitamin C Serum: Is it the real deal? Recently skincare enthusiasts have been clamoring to get into the latest buzz in the skincare world, the vitamin C serum.

My First 30 Days on Medium

I’ve been writing on Medium for a month now and I thought I’d share my experience with all of you. I published my first article on the 15th of December, 2021. Since then, I’ve gained around 90 followers and written a total of 25 articles, excluding this one. I suppose it’s a marathon, not a sprint. I haven’t hit 100 followers yet. I’m not sure what to think of that. There seems to be a lot of you on here that have done it in a week, or so you claim. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? I don’t know

How to be Successful on Medium

You don’t have to write an article everyday As far as I know, there is no evidence to suggest that daily posting is more effective than occasionally posting. This comes down to the “quantity vs quality” argument. I’ve been writing as much as I can and I think you can do both. Some articles take longer to write, while some I can write in an hour or two. Some articles are less than 500 words, while others are closer to a thousand. Make an effort to engage with other people Engaging with other w

Escaping Reality with Reality

Looking at all these success stories, it’s not surprising to see an influx of new vtubers, whether from companies or those starting independently. Though it can be quite difficult for independent vtubers because the avatar-making software is not cheap, and some of the good ones require a certain level of 3D modelling skill. One of the only ways is to commission a well known vtube 3D model maker to make one for you. Though, it can get really expensive. Thankfully, becoming an independent vtuber

Online Thrifting is Fun, But Not Recommended

Starting 2022 with an impulse to online-shop is concerning, but I can’t help it. I mean, who can resist not looking at all the good new year deals. All these clothing retails are putting up discounted shirts and pants up to 75% off. I can’t say no to that. But thankfully, my brother came to a rescue and said “Bro, look at this thrifted Champion hoodie. Retail price is like IDR 1,000,000, but in this store, only IDR 150,000!”. Guess what next? I bought it. Little did I know that was just the beg

A Stressful Game: 49ers vs Rams in Week 18

It was halfway through the 2nd quarter of the 49ers vs Rams game in week 18 of the NFL regular season. The Rams had already clinched a playoff spot but the 49ers needed a win to get in the playoffs versus their division rival. At this point, the 49ers were down 17–0 and all hope looked lost. I love the 49ers as much as any fan loves their team. I could barely bare to watch the game because it was going so terribly. The season that had gone on for four months seemed to be at a depressing end. Our

The Perfect Joke-teller: Norm Macdonald

Three years ago, I was introduced to Norm Macdonald. YouTube’s algorithm must know me better than I know me when it suggested some of his videos. As someone who thinks they can be funny and tell some funny jokes here and there, I enjoy listening to comedians as much as anyone. I thought I had heard it all. Chappelle, Carlin, Murphy, Louis C.K., I thought I had heard it all. However, the discovery of Norm Macdonald showed me a whole different type of comedy that I was completely unaware of. At fi

9ers vs America’s Team: The NFL’s Greatest Rivalry

This weekend the NFL’s greatest all-time rivalry is back. No, they haven’t played each other in a playoff game in over 20 years, and only face each other every 4 years in the regular season. 49ers versus Cowboys is the best rivalry the NFL has ever seen. It may not have the physicality a Ravens-Steelers game has or maybe the pizazz and old-school intensity of Steelers-Cowboys but it has lasted all these years. Staubach has been replaced by Aikman and Prescott, Walsh by Shanahan, and Pearson and
