With Martin Luther King Day approaching (18/01/2021,) it is essential to remember all the good he created and inspired in others during his life. He was a man of significant influence, having the profound ability to entice his listeners and make them aware of all the injustices their own country was serving them. Before King came along and took hold of the civil rights movement, the topic was not often thought of, let alone spoken. King opened black Americans' eyes to the fact that they should not endure inequality, but stand up to it and demand equal rights. He also opened the eyes of white Americans who needed to know that segregation was unnecessary and cruel, that being white does not mean they can stand back and watch.
I have been creating content on Vocal since April 2020; however, I did not properly start until the end of November last year. Since then, I have dedicated myself to posting content on the platform multiple times a week and have loved the experience so far. I have explored various blogging platforms, but none have compared to Vocal. With its Challenge feature, unique communities, and multiple features to support the reader and their creators' experience, I have decided to dedicate myself to Vocal and its future. I have even decided to invest in the company's stock shares to support its growth. As both a creator and investor in the platform, it is excellent to see Vocal taking steps to improve their user experience, and today's updated website is a sign of just that.
We came to know this cat we call Indica, who is everything but mellow, in a Portuguese apartment three years ago. After being abandoned by her mother, we decided to bring her back to the Uk with us. Since then, she had been living with my parents while we finished university. They both adore Indica purely because of how much sass she holds in that tiny little body. A somewhat cantankerous feline, She does not let you hold her for very long, and her attitude comes out when you try to clip the nails! She likes our company, but not so much of our affection which we have so much to give! Owning an independent cat is a great way to learn about patience and consent, cats will let you know if they don't like what you're doing with a quick bite or a hiss, maybe even a scratch!
I am the type of person that finds it easy to work wherever I am. From theatres to campsites, I allow my environment to inspire me. All of this came to a stop once the pandemic hit. I never realised how difficult working from home was for me. Understand that this is strange coming from someone working in the creative industries. My workspace just did not work as well as places outside my home. I decided to explore how to make my workspace as functional as possible. I am proud to say that the transformation has been successful, and now my workplace is the one spot I work best.
hello 20201. my name indica. please no laughing. i know my name is weed plant. my humans think they funny. i am cat.
Readers from across the planet have gathered here today to witness the first-ever, annual PeopleJSS! Spotify Awards! After the year we have had, it is time to call it quits and move on! This is why, on the last day of each year, we will be gathering together to go through the 20 chosen songs from David’s Spotify nominated to take the title of the first-ever, PeopleJSS! Hits of the Year! What makes David’s Spotify worthy of such a prestigious title? A lack of a proper budget and a steady decrease in being a Staff Pick, okay? While on the topic of staff Picks, we are thankful for our host this year, Vocal.Media, for their rapid releases of Challenges over the past couple of months and the platform that we at PeopleJSS! Call home. We're trying our best to get back to the top, so keep them coming guys!
2020 has been quite a year. I would find it hard to believe that there wasn't a single person on this planet that hasn't been negatively affected by the events that this year dished out to us. We quite literally started the year in flames as the Australian bush fires continued to burn into January since they started in June 2019. The WHO (World Health Organisation) declaring COVID-19 a pandemic in March. Protests around the world took place against racism and police brutality after the murder of George Floyd in May. A massive explosion rocks through Beirut, Lebonan in August. A 7.0 magnitude earthquake ripped through the Aegean in October. And a new string of COVID-19 variants sweeping through Europe in December.
I cannot help to ignore the fact that this year's Christmas has officially been cancelled. On the 19th of December, Boris Johnson, The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom announced a new tier 4 in the country. If you are unaware of how our government is tackling pandemic, the tier system determines which parts of the country are allowed to have certain freedoms depending on its infection rate against its population. The higher the infection rate per 100,000 residents, the higher the tier you are placed in. The tier limits certain aspects of daily life, such as mixing with other households indoors, hospitality venues being shut and travel restrictions. Before yesterday, the 3-tier system was in place with a 5-day Christmas window that allowed people to go and spend the holiday with their family. This included travel to other cities and removal of stricter rules, such as mixing households indoors. As I am writing this, all has changed in the UK, and Christmas is officially over before it even started.
