Malala Donates $50,000 Prize Money To Help Rebuild Damaged Schools In Gaza

 

Recently, we gave you a list of reasons that 17-year-old activist Malala Yousafzai is an inspiration. Well it looks like there’s yet another reason we should be inspired by the world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize Winner.

Malala Yousafzai — who gained worldwide recognition for surviving gunshots to the head at the hands of the Taliban in 2012  — is a known advocate for education. Yesterday, she announced that the $50,000 she received from World Children’s Prize would be donated to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, which is currently focused on rebuilding schools affected by the conflict in Gaza.

Many of these schools were hit by Israeli shells during the weeks of bombing and fighting. The Israel-Hamas conflict left more than 2,100 Palestinians and 72 Israelis dead. According to the Daily Beast, Malala’s prize money will help reconstruct 65 damaged schools.

“Innocent Palestinian children have suffered terribly and for too long,” Yousafzai said. “We must all work to ensure Palestinian boys and girls, and all children everywhere, receive a quality education in a safe environment. Because without education, there will never be peace.”

Malala was only a young girl when she became an activist for education rights and women’s rights. At the age of 11, she began blogging about her life under Taliban rule. This was so powerful that in 2009, a New York Times documentary was filmed about her life. Her actions were seen as unacceptable by the Taliban and in 2012, Malala was shot in the head and neck by a gunman in an assassination attempt. The strong, young lady survived the attack and continues to fight for what she believes in.

The Malala fund, which was formed in October 2012, has been actively supporting education and safety in Pakistan, Nigeria, Jordan and Kenya.

The Perfect Fall/Winter Hair: Nelson J Salon’s BRONDE

 

Fall is here and winter is just around the corner. For many of you, that means sweater weather, boots and warm colors. But for those of you who are tired of dark and gloomy and are looking for a pop of color in your look, we suggest you use your hair.

Nelson Chan, the owner of Nelson J Salon, has brought together a number of looks perfect for the Fall/Winter season. Trust me when I say these are not your average cold weather hair colors. These hairstyles are sure to turn heads, while maintaining the warm feeling associated with the seasons. My favorite? Bronde.

bronde 2

Bronde is a darker take on a blonde look first made popular by Victoria Secret supermodel, Giselle Bundchen.

“With a medium to dark base, boomerang-shaped blonde slices are scattered strategically around the eyes, cheekbones and neckline to add a bit of drama to what might otherwise be a basic brown. Placement is key, and the effect is more abstract than one which merely mimics nature. For instance, Chan does not place blonde highlights on the top of the head or parting, where in real life sunlight would fall and lighten locks. “Bronde” is an elegant, witty reimagining of how a worldly brunette might experience a last flicker of lingering summer as the seasons shift to darker days ahead.”

Clearly, Bronde strives to show the dark, warm colors of fall and winter with a lasting reminder of summer. The effect is a gorgeous Fall/Winter hairstyle that stands out brilliantly in comparison to the dark shades that are sure to pop up this season.

Upon first glance, I fell in love with this look. Would it truly look as good in person? I went to go find out for myself.

A VISIT TO NELSON J SALON

IMG_4940

Before shot of my hair

You may think you know good customer service, but you truly haven’t experienced anything unless you’ve stepped inside Nelson J Salon in Beverly Hills.

I was a little apprehensive about the idea of walking out of a salon with giant chunks of blond in my hair, but a after few minutes of looking around, all apprehension disappeared. Everyone clearly knew what they were doing and more importantly, they were determined to do a good job.

I was greeted at the door by a friendly receptionist who gave me a tour of the salon which not only only offers hair service, they also do nails and makeup. After a greeting from all of the staff members and offers of refreshment, I finally met the famed Nelson Chan.

“Back in Hong Kong, I was just a shampoo boy having fun,” Chan reflected as he began working on my hair. He laughed and added, “My first hair cut took my three hours. I didn’t even finish.”

Well he has certainly come a long way since his days in Hong Kong. His salon has become one of the leading salons in Los Angeles. His work is so sought after that he is often summoned to celebrity homes and movie sets. His client list includes the likes of Lady Gaga, Paula Abdul, Devon Aoki, Christina Applegate, Sarah Michelle Geller and Maggie Q.

“We mainly have celebrities, professionals and house wives.” Chan added before he showed me, step by step, what he was going to do with my hair.

In fact, there wasn’t a single moment during the entire visit where I wasn’t informed exactly what was going on. I was constantly asked if I was comfortable enough and it was obvious that the staff paid very close attention to every customer no matter how many there were. Chan confirmed that his staff members are thoroughly trained and are even taught new and updated techniques throughout their time working for him.

As the dye was washed off my hair by a staff member (who had the hands of an angel!), I noticed a customer in the middle of a deep conversation with her manicurist. It’s easy to see how this could happen– the staff made the environment extremely comfortable and welcoming to all the customers.

IMG_5009 IMG_5011 IMG_5020
By the time Chan was blow drying and curling my hair, any bit of apprehension was completely replaced with excitement. I had just witnessed 3 other girls walk out of the salon with giant smiles and I was confident that I would soon join them.

Before and After.

Before and After.

Just as I had expected, my hair came out beautiful and has been eye catching enough to be a fashion accessory all on its own. The prices in Nelson J Salon can run a bit high, but it’s clear that you’re paying for an experience and for people who genuinely care . Best of all, you’re surrounded by people who sincerely seem to enjoy their work.

What Would You Change About Your Body? Adults and Children Respond Drastically Different

 

If you were asked to change one thing about your body, what would you say? Would you want to lose those stretch marks you picked up from pregnancy? Or maybe you’d like to lose the 15 pounds you picked up from freshman year? What about your shoulders, hair, feet, smile, eye shape, butt and muscles? By the time you’ve thought about every little physical trait you’d like to improve, you may be wondering if it’s even possible for you to choose just one thing to change.

Unfortunately, this desire to change our body is quite common for many of us. After all, we’re constantly surrounded by media telling us the “ideal” way to look and the hundred ways we aren’t the ideal.

So that begs the question: When did we begin living in a world of counting flaws? We couldn’t have been born this way, right?

JubileeProject went ahead and conducted an experiment to find out. They gathered 50 people– both children and adults– and asked them what they would like to change about their body. The results? Children and adults have drastically different responses.

The description to the video states, “We hope that this video will inspire you to be more comfortable and confident in yourself. Beauty is not about what you don’t have, but about being comfortable in your own skin.”

 

 

The official website describes Jubilee Project as “a 501c3 that exists to tell stories that inspire change. We make short films, PSAs and documentaries in collaboration with non-profits to increase awareness and inspire action. Our vision is to produce entertaining content that will empower, enable, and inspire others to do good as well.” Learn more about them here.

Is Your Halloween Costume Racist? Use This Handy Chart To Find Out!

 

There are endless possibilities when it comes to Halloween costumes. You can be a cat, a superhero, even a banana! We personally don’t care how silly, scary or sexy your costume is, but we will care if your costume is racist.

Many people don’t even seem to recognize when they’re wearing a controversial costume. They simply see Halloween as an opportunity to be someone else for a night. But that’s the problem, you can’t be someone else for a night. As Huffington Post explains:

“Borrowing from another culture is most problematic when it plucks from a minority group (especially one that has been exploited or otherwise oppressed). Using aspects of another culture from a position of privilege is a means of additional exploitation in that it disregards the shared experiences that led to the development of the culture in question and uses ideas and traditions for their benefit.”

 

And trust us, we’ve seen some pretty insensitive ones over the years. Just check out these three guys who decided to be the Asiana Airlines flight attendants after crashing the plane.

So if you’re confused about whether or not you’re wearing something insensitive tonight, we’re here to help. College humor created this handy flowchart for anyone that can’t figure out if their costume is racist. Check it out below:

 

Video of Talented Japanese Drummer Senri Kawaguchi Goes Viral

 

This past summer, S. White, a Taiwanese jazz drummer and street performer, stole everyone’s heart with her impressive drumming skills and adorable head-bobbing. Well, it looks like she’s not the only one gaining attention for her drumming!

A video of Senri Kawaguchi playing along to “Jinshin War” by Kawaguchi Chisato has been going viral. Many people claim she is more talented than most professional drummers and she has mastered quite a unique technique. Most impressive of all? Kawaguchi is only 16-years-old.

So how exactly does a teenager get to be so talented? Well apparently Kawaguchi was only 5-years-old when she first picked up drumsticks. By the time she was eight, she was receiving lessons from famed Japanese drummers.

Since then, she’s kept herself quite busy with her passion. She performed with rock band Nokemono before she became a teenager, landed endorsement deals with Yamaha and Zildjian, received awards in the “Rhythm & Drums Magazine” contest, appeared on a number of television shows, released her debut DVD “Horoscope,” and is currently touring with idol group E-Girls.

Check out the viral video for yourself and tell us what you think!

5 Reasons You Should Watch A James Wan Film This Halloween

Don’t know who James Wan is? Well you certainly ought to change that.

Responsible for films such as Insidious, The Conjuring, and the Saw franchise, James Wan has been shaping our nightmares for years now. The 36-year-old Chinese Australian filmmaker is overlooked far more than he should be. Many people know his films and yet they don’t know the man behind them.

At the young age of 11, Wan was already well-aware that he wanted to be a filmmaker. After he received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, he instantly went on to make films with a fellow aspiring filmmaker, Leigh Whannell. The two have collaborated with one another for a handful of films which just so happen to be perfect for Halloween.

We encourage you to sit down with some popcorn, a protective blanket and a James Wan film of your choice. Here’s five reasons why James Wan should be part of you Halloween this year:

 


 

1. He understands that given the right setting, a doll can be our worst nightmare.
No seriously, these things are creepy.

doll 1 doll 2
doll 3

 


 

2. He understands the power of Audio.

Watch a James Wan film at the theaters and you surely won’t be disappointed with the audio. Many scenes use it very tactfully like this one from Insidious:

And lets not forget the way he manages to make a simple title score terrifying while it’s blasted at you in full volume:

 


 

3. Why yes, creatures that pop up at us are frightening. 

pop 1 pop 2 pop 3

 

 


 

4. He understands that sometimes “less is more.”

Don’t get me wrong. Wan is brilliant at scary images that stay in your head in the worst way possible, but he understands that there needs to be variety.

He can take a little girl pointing at a wall and horrify you. He can allude to a scary flashback without ever showing what happened, but still give you the creeps. Wan understands that sometimes, our own imagination can be much worse than anything he shows.

the counjuring

 


 

5. He makes you care about his characters and his storyline.

You may have turned away from the stomach-churning gore in Saw, but you have to admit, the movie got you thinking. He made sure you paid attention and ended up questioning whether or not you would be able to do the same thing. Would you make the same mistakes?

saw

Often times, a horror film flaw is that we simply don’t care about the characters. We’re afraid for death itself, but we don’t actually know too much about the people who are about to die or worse, they take on stereotypical “scary movie” personas. Wan very tastefully avoids this mistake with a simple method: He makes you actually like his characters. You end up hoping for a happy ending and it makes you more invested in the film itself.

Conjuring-family

 

So take it from us and make sure Wan is part of your holiday. Happy Halloween everyone!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month Product Round Up

 

 

October is coming to a close, so if you have not yet found a way to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month, now’s your chance! National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in 1985 to increase awareness of the disease, help raise funds for research and create aid for those who are currently being treated.

As you probably already know, there are a number of ways to support this international health campaign. First of all, you can schedule a check up and make sure you are taking the proper steps in detecting the disease. You can then donate directly to NBCF, join countless marathons and fundraisers, and volunteer to help educate others.

Today, we’re looking into another way to support the campaign: BCAM products. You’ve probably noticed pink items everywhere this month and even if you’re not a fan of pink, don’t overlook them! Countless companies have created products specifically for BCAM and a portion of the profits are donated to various breast cancer organizations.

We stumbled upon quite a number of BCAM products and we’re here to bring you our most favorite picks.
