TikTok star Charli D’Amelio admits that the negativity she receives online has caused her to "lose the passion" for creating content for the app. Speaking on the 2 Chix podcast, which she hosts with her sister Dixie D’Amelio, the 16-year-old said that she has become more conscious about the content she shares with her 109 million followers as trolls are quick to drag her with negative comments. "It's extremely difficult to continue posting on a platform where the people that are watching your videos don't actually like, want to see you and a lot of the feedback is negative. It's very hard to do that," she said. "And I just kind of lost the passion for it because it used to be really fun for me." She said that trolls were "ready to jump and criticise" her whenever she make a mistake or were quick to take "something in the wrong way". "That's why I don't speak as much besides the podcast, because it's scary," she said. Her comments come after the star lost a million … [Read more...] about Why Charli D’Amelio ‘lost passion’ to create TikTok content?
Source: MJ Sharps/wombatphoto PTSD is a major problem in law enforcement. PTSD was essentially the same, in terms of its symptoms, for centuries before modern media highlighted it for the general public (e. g ., Sharps & Price-Sharps, 2019). PTSD is real, and it has been for a very long time. Yet you still run into people who question the importance of PTSD. Not necessarily the condition as such; but rather the relevance of PTSD for them , personally. Paradoxically, many of these people are law enforcement officers. Tom Wolfe wrote an excellent book, The Right Stuff (1979) , about the NASA Mercury program and the astronauts who flew the Mercury rockets into space. The Right Stuff is what those astronauts had, according to Wolfe; a kind of courage, coupled with a self-effacing facade, that dealt with any hazard with competence, absolute courage, and a kind of style seldom seen under life-threatening conditions. The Right Stuff is what many modern law … [Read more...] about Killing Hickok: Wild Bill, PTSD, and The Right Stuff
Kindly Share This Story: Only incumbent Ahmad Ahmad potentially stands in the way of South African billionaire and current sole candidate Patrice Motsepe becoming the eighth president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) this Friday. A verdict is expected Monday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on an appeal by Malagasy Ahmad against a five-year ban imposed by FIFA last November over “governance issues”. The world football governing body said the 61-year-old had “breached his duty of loyalty, offered gifts and other benefits, mismanaged funds and abused his position as the CAF president”. Ahmad appealed to CAS within two days of the ban being announced and was allowed to return to his CAF post in January, pending the outcome. A CAF executive committee member, speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity in order to be candid, said he believed the best Ahmad could hope for was “a lesser suspension”. “Some of the evidence against him … [Read more...] about Ahmad only possible obstacle to Motsepe becoming CAF president
Things have changed. In some cases they’ve changed a lot and may never be the same again. Many people are suffering as a result of the impacts of lockdowns and the border closures. Entire industries, like aviation and entertainment, have been profoundly affected. Some people are being forced to re-invent their lives as a result. Fears over Covid-19 are causing people to change their habits and re-evaluate their lives. Here are some of the main things we believe have changed since January this year. Face Masks The now ever-present face mask will be with us for a long time. In Asia, it was never uncommon to see people wearing face masks for traffic, air pollution, fears of disease or just as a fashion statement. In the Covid-era, mask wearing will now just become part of what we wear when in public spaces. When we leave home we’ll check if we have our keys, our wallet AND our face mask. Even when the government relaxes the current laws about the wearing of face masks, most … [Read more...] about Top 10 things that changed in Thailand during the Covid outbreak
CHRISTCHURCH: Tens of thousands of coastal residents in New Zealand, New Caledonia and Vanuatu fled for higher ground on Friday as a cluster of powerful earthquakes sparked a Pacific-wide tsunami alert. Warning sirens sounded across Noumea as authorities ordered evacuations amid fears that waves of up three meters were headed toward the French territory. “People must leave beach areas and stop all water activities, and should not pick their children up at schools to avoid creating traffic jams,” emergency services spokesman Alexandre Rosignol told public radio. In New Zealand, communities along stretches of the North Island were warned to flee as tsunami alert sirens wailed after an 8.1-magnitude quake, which followed earlier tremors in the same region measuring 7.4 and 7.3. “Do not stay at home,” the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said. “People near the coast… must move immediately to the nearest high ground, out of all tsunami evacuation zones, or as far … [Read more...] about 8.1 quake forces evacuation in NZ, Vanuatu
