White Twitter user goes viral for all of the right reasons

Twitter the lovely place in which people can express themselves in all manners, and then, also a place where people tweet things they probably shouldn't. A twitter user identified as Mike Wazowski and Chase Scales decidedly took to social media declaring themselves to be "N****s" when in fact nobody in the image is actually black. https://twitter.com/_wyattjohnson/status/1178331125179191297?s=21 The image as it should sparked outcry considering nobody could actually find a black person in this photograph.

In this country, once again, it is now illegal for women to buy alcohol

Or sell it for that matter. Days after Sri Lanka lifted a 38-year-old ban on  women buying and or selling alcohol, the President, has reinstated that very same ban.   The ban first appeared 38-years-ago ultimately restricting women from ever working in a place that sells/buys alcoholic beverages --- or basically outright consuming them themselves.

What happens when you don’t turn your phone on flight mode?

If you're a frequent flyer,  you've probably heard of or had your own belief at one point or another -- that your phone and its signals could potentially cause mid flight problems for an airplane. However, that isn't actually the case. For example, the UK Aviation Authority confirmed recently that some flights have begun to allow voice calls and texts mid flight. But, in America,  such hasn't happened yet.  Some twenty or so years ago,  it was largely believed that signals emitted from cell phones could potentially cause problems for the cockpit and those in it. But, aviation experts say in modern day that isn't the case and is largely impossible.  So, why do many American airline operators still have the ban in effect? Mostly, because politicians and the governm...
