Martin Luther King Jr. Day: places to honor his legacy

Image
In 1957, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a speech in Montgomery, Alabama, in which he declared, "Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'" In that spirit, since 1983, the third Monday in January has been set aside as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It serves as a time of reflection and a call to action. In the mid-90s, the slogan “A Day On, Not a Day Off” was promoted to push the importance of service on MLK Day, which falls this year on the civil rights icon's 89th birthday. Please stop politicizing Martin Luther King Day. It's a day for national unity, not political division This year, dozens of nonprofit organizations will commemorate the civil rights leader through service opportunities and free admission to national parks and parades. The National Civil Rights Museum will host “Where Do We Go from Here,” a day of activities which will feature daylong performances, youth-centered programming, and a Healthy Communit…

A Japanese pop group hopped on the bitcoin bandwagon to sing about trading

Image
TOKYO  - A Japanese pop group hopped on the bitcoin bandwagon on Friday, dedicating themselves to singing and dancing about the cryptocurrencies that have taken the world by storm, and especially their homeland.

Talk about jumping on a bandwagon – Japanese pop group Virtual Currency Girls (or Kasotsuka Shojo in Japanese) have decided to dedicate their careers to making banging tunes and dance routines about cryptocurrencies. 

In possibly the most zeitgeisty piece of news ever, the eight members of the Japanese band sing songs about cryptocurrency – which is a pretty big deal in places like Japan and South Korea – whilst jumping around in maid’s costumes and fluffy pom pom ears – oh yes, and don’t forget about the shiny, full-face wrestling masks adorned with the Bitcoin logo.



The group’s leader, 18-year-old Rara Naruse, told Reuters that she hopes their songs will prove to be educational to listeners. ‘[Crypotcurrencies] are so convenient you kind of have to wonder why we didn’t have the…

Black Panther Movie Ticket Pre-Sales Outpace Civil War

Image
Marvel fans are excited about the studio’s Black Panther movie. The film, which hits theaters next month, had the biggest first-day ticket presale of any Marvel movie and set a record for the best first-day advance ticket sales for any Marvel movie.
Black Panther is the first standalone film to focus on the titular character, the superhero alias of King T’Challa of the fictional country Wakanda, portrayed by actor Chadwick Boseman.

Black Panther is already breaking records as early ticket sales are outpacing Captain America: Civil War. Marvel Studios will kick off their 2018 slate by giving one of Civil War‘s breakout characters their own movie. Black Panther will put Chadwick Boseman’s T’Challa in the leading role, marking the first Marvel Cinematic Universe film to be led by a person of color. Ryan Coogler (Creed) is also leading the charge as director. As if all of this wasn’t good enough, the supporting cast assembled may be Marvel’s best cast to date.
