Gruppenchats waren noch nie wichtiger als zu Corona-Zeiten

ImDezember 2020 war Martha krank und nervös. Sie war so nervös, dass es sie krank machte. Nein – sie war krank und das machte sie nervös.  Martha hatte einen Husten und leichtes Fieber. Corona jährte sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt schon bald zum ersten Mal; kein Wunder also, dass sie sich direkt Sorgen machte, sich das Virus eingefangen zu haben. Sie hatte große Angst vor den Folgen dieser Krankheit – aber auch davor, in ihrer WhatsApp-Gruppe dafür verurteilt zu werden.  Früh im letzten Herbst s...

Cher at 74: 'There are 20-year-old girls who can’t do what I do’

Her $60m annual Las Vegas residency was off the cards this year, but the singer still has lots to say about animal rights, Trump’s ‘toxic’ politics, cosmetic surgery and the men in her lifeThe Goddess of Pop is in town. And what an entrance she makes. Two-tone black-and-white beret, matching jacket, skinny jeans, black boots, black mask, and an elephant-shaped knuckle-duster. She looks the ultimate in revolutionary chic – Cher Guevara. She is not in London to promote a record (100m sold and coun...

For Dave Brubeck’s 100th Birthday, Watch Pakistani Musicians Play an Enchanting Version of “Take Five”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLF46JKkCNg How’s this for fusion? Here we have The Sachal Studios Orchestra, based in Lahore, Pakistan, playing an innovative cover of “Take Five,” the jazz standard written by Paul Desmond and originally performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet in 1959. Brubeck–who would have celebrated his 100th birthday today–called it the “most interesting” version he had ever heard. Once you watch the performance above, you’ll know why. According to The Guardian, The Sa...

Wie ich dank meiner verstorbenen Mutter eine Fehlgeburt während Corona überstand

Als meine Ärztin unsere strahlenden Gesichter sah, sagte sie: „Dann sind wohl Glückwünsche angebracht.“ „Ich denke schon“, gab ich zögerlich von mir. Mein Mann und ich hatten davor sieben Monate lang versucht, unser erstes Baby zu bekommen, und waren gerade an einen Fruchtbarkeitsspezialisten in einer anderen Stadt überwiesen worden. Für uns fühlte sich der positive Schwangerschaftstest wie ein kleines Wunder an. Nach diesem Arzttermin wurde ich zur Blutuntersuchung geschickt. „Ich bin schwan...

Meine Suche nach Zugehörigkeit als Schwarze, muslimische Frau

„Du dreckige Afghanin“, fauchte mich ein weißer Junge aus meiner Klasse an. Ich war erst 13, als ich mir das anhören musste. Damals ging ich an eine Gesamtschule im Norden von London und trug einen Hijab. Es war ein ganz normaler Teenie-Streit unter Mitschüler*innen gewesen. Über duftende Glitzer-Gelstifte. Also warum wurde jetzt plötzlich meine Herkunft zur Zielscheibe? Ich bin Schwarz, Britin und Muslimin. Schon mein ganzes Leben bekomme ich die doppelte Portion Rassismus aufgetischt: Islam...

Genitalverstümmelung in Kenia: Der Kampf einer Frau gegen eine blutige Tradition

„Alle Kühe auf der Welt sind grau, weiß, braun oder schwarz. Hast du jemals eine lila Kuh gesehen?“, fragt die kenianische Aktivistin Hellen Nkuraiya. Damit will sie sich jetzt nicht über eine gewisse Schoko-Marke lustig machen. Nkuraiya hat etwas anderes im Sinn: eine lila gestrichene Schule namens Enkiteng Lepa, (unsere Kuh-Schule). „In der Massai-Gemeinschaft sind Kühe das wertvollste Gut“, so die Aktivistin gegenüber Refinery29. „Wir lassen unser Geld nicht auf der Bank, sondern legen ...

Warum Mädchen in Pakistan noch immer zwangsverheiratet werden

Frauen und Mädchen machen die Hälfte der Weltbevölkerung aus und doch kämpfen wir immer noch für Gleichberechtigung. Und nicht nur das: Allein aufgrund unseres Geschlechts sind wir ständig der Gefahr von Gewalt ausgesetzt; wir haben noch nicht die gleichen Bildungschancen und haben schlechteren Zugang zu einer guten Gesundheitsvorsorge und wirtschaftlichen Ressourcen. Fundamental ist eine neue Doku-Serie auf YouTube, die von Global Fund For Women, der weltweit führenden Stiftung für Fra...

Pittsburgh Opera Postpones Major New Opera. What (If Anything) Does This Say About New Opera? (About Pittsburgh Opera?)

The company expected to deliver “Bhutto” — a dramatic treatment of the history of Pakistan’s Bhutto political dynasty — this coming November. However, “Bhutto” has been removed from next season’s lineup and put on hiatus primarily due to lack of funding, according to the opera. – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It takes a PhD in environmental toxicology from Cornell University to serve up a nice number to those who love the fudge cooked up by Narendra Modi’s statistical chefs

Can’t beat UPA’s growth rate? Calculate the GDP rate differently. Can’t provide two crore jobs as promised? Stop tracking employment. Worst unemployment in 45 years? Bury the NSSO report. Can’t stop the attack of journalists? Stop counting the deaths. Mudra loans swindled without creating jobs? Commission a new study. Can’t make trains run on time? Increase the travel time. Or speed up the video. You can get mad at the statistical leaps of the Narendra Modi government which loves the Guinness Bo...

R29 Binge Club: House Of Cards Season 6

The king is dead; long live the queen. That is the mantra for the sixth and final season of Netflix’s House Of Cards, which arrived Friday, November 2. Clare Hale (star-executive producer-director Robin Wright) is using her maiden name — by the way, “maiden name” is a painfully outdated phrase — as the president of the United States. Claire’s husband Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) abandoned the position during 2017’s season 5, leading to Claire’s “My turn” ascendancy. Then, after Frank’s portra...

Back-To-School Trends You Can Wear No Matter Your Age

Age ain't nothin' but a number, or so says , a precocious New York teen whose refreshing take on collegiate style (which provides plenty of inspiration for our "grown-up" wardrobes, too) made her an instant follow when we came across her on social media recently. While looking to the youth for the next big thing is nothing new, what's often left out is the part where we give proper credit where credit is due. But not this time, as we recognize and laud two Gen Z'ers and local college students ...

Why Was A Pakistani 23-Year-Old Detained Despite Having A Student Visa?

Mohammad Sarfaraz Hussain was supposed to come out in "three minutes" from a quick check-in with a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) official after arriving at the William P.

Or at least, that's what the official told his sister Shahla Shahnawaz.Instead, Hussain, a 23-year-old Pakistani immigrant with a valid student visa, was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents and is now in the custody of U.S. Immigratio...

A Pakistani Orchestra & Wynton Marsalis Play an Enchanting Version of John Coltrane’s “My Favorite Things”

Everyone knows "My Favorite Things." Most know it because of the 1965 movie version of the Broadway musical for which Richard Rodgers originally composed the song. But many jazz enthusiasts credit the one true "My Favorite Things" to a different musical genius entirely: John Coltrane. The free jazz-pioneering saxophonist's version of Rodgers' show tune (a filmed performance of which we featured here on Open Culture a few years ago) first came out as the title track of an album he put out...

Why Fasting During Ramadan Isn't Just About Food

As you may already know, Ramadan isn't just about fasting during the day. However, as one of the more visible forms of celebration, the daytime meal-skipping has become a point of fascination for non-Muslims — and it's not as simple as it seems.Here are the basics: For the month of Ramadan, which started this past Tuesday, Muslims abstain from eating from just before dawn until the sun sets. There's a pre-dawn meal known as the suhur. And, at sundown, they break their fast with a communal meal ...
