RACE

Ah race...the social grouping of a group of people who share similar and distinct physical characteristics and perceived traits. A concept used to used to signify different types of human bodies even though there is no biological basis for the classification of, just a means to organize groups of people based on similar skin color and physical appearance. Scientist may discourage collective differentiation of it, but since we've yet to agree with scientist on that on front, might as well discuss it. - Maggie Barnes

HISTORY

Best known as the branch of knowledge dealing with past, notable for important, unusual, or interesting events, acts, or ideas that can, will, or have shaped our present. We explore history to tap into curiosity and think about how that happened, and maybe even why. - Maggie Barnes

CULTURE

Culture, you know, those predominating attitudes and behaviors that characterize a group or organization. All those complexities of arts, beliefs, customs, institutions, and other products of human work and thought, with regard to particular times, social groups, and acquired habits. The concept of culture covers expression to principles, and that intangible heritage to ethnic groups, nations, and subcategories, is fascinating wouldn't you agree?

  • Would it Be Awkward to Get STD Screened With Your Granddad?

     

    It’s cute that granny still likes to get her kicks. Viagra helps grandpas continue getting their swerve on. But hearing about either of them getting a STD at their age…well that’s unsettling. The elderly have to be reminded of a lot of things the older they get…where their glasses are, did they put on their […]

    Does a Character with a Mental Disorder Make a Show Must See TV? When is the last time you could count on (more than) your hands and maybe your toes, the instances of mental or neurological disorders showed as TV—where the person was a card carrying member of crazytown and requiring a leash (figuratively speaking) […]

  • I Effin Live There ( In Ireland That Is)

     

                          Where do you live? I effin live in Effin, Ireland. Yeah if I worked at Facebook I’d wouldn’t believe you either. The Irish town with the (seemingly) offensive name has finally been acknowledged as a real place, where real people live. Effin is a townland […]

  • Fat Pets Aren’t Cute (not even in a super bowl commerical)

     

    One or two—okay millions—of you probably found Volkswagen’s 2012 Super Bowl commercial to be somewhat of a hoot. But the epidemic that is the rise of the overweight pet is anything but humorous. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, the majority of adult dogs and cats in U.S. homes, we’re talking 53% of adult […]

    If word continues to spread of how Charity Buzz collects proceeds for well deserving nonprofits, it just may well be.

  • A Mom Breastfeeding a Toddler and the Magazine Cover Everyone Is Talking About

     

    I like to think that if you can ask for the boob, maybe you’re too old to still be getting it. I’m not a mother with an informed opinion on the matter, I wasn’t breastfeed, and I haven’t really thought about breastfeeding. Put a woman with a kid that looks like he could be in […]

  • If I Couldn’t Shop At Target, I’d Miss It Too

     

    I was just saying the other day to a friend, if I was ever famous for some reason, I’d still shop at Target, because Target is awesome. I live in Los Angeles where the odds of running into a celeb doing something normal and boring, and shopping at the same places I do, is pretty much […]

  • Want a Clairvoyant Kid? Take Them to Psychic Kindergarten (Harry Potter Would Approve)

     

    Totally not into Harry Potter, so I’d probably not be into this Psychic Kindergarten business either.  It’s like how to be clairvoyant little kid edition. The clairvoyant title falls in with the synonyms of psychic and medium—but without the “I see dead people” or the future characteristics and heavy on the ability or power to see objects […]

  • Worst (aka dumbest) Things To Do In Court

     

    A couple of things you’d never think lawyers would consider debriefing their clients on before facing a judge in charge of throwing the book at them. A Texas judge recently said to 17-year-old defendant Corey Webb, “I don’t know how you were raised, but peeing in a trash can in a state district courtroom is […]

    In 2011, Debbie Stevens of New York wasn’t expecting any sort of special treatment after voluntarily donating a kidney to her boss, but she certainly didn’t see this coming. Steven’s employer, Jackie Brucia, suffered from kidney disease and being an in an act of altruism, she offered one of hers. The two weren’t a match, […]
