People Packed Some Stinky Lunches For ‘Take Your Ethnic Food To Work’ Day

The Huffington Post | Carla Herreria | October 24, 2016 | Taste
Put down that bland salad and yogurt cup and forget your inhibitions. Monday is National Take Your Ethnic Food To Work Day. It’s the only day of the year when you can finally bring steamed fish or Thai red curry to work without feeling embarrassed about reheating your lunch in the microwave. To get the scoop on the liberating holiday, comedian and woman-on-the-street reporter Jenny Yang shared a video that took us into the offices of Long Life Insurance, where employees chowed down on the smelliest home-cooked meals they’ve been aching to eat during lunch hour. Meals included stinky tofu, globs of kimchi, stacks of whole fish and, of course, the ubiquitous fish sauce that pairs perfectly with everything from chicken and salad to oatmeal. Take Your Ethnic Food To Work Day is the unifying holiday America needs right now, because it’s high time we made lunchtime a celebration of every culture’s food — no matter how smelly it may be. Check out the fare people are sharing using the hashtag #FoodToWork: National Take Your Ethnic Food to Work Day: Not just kimchi fried rice.

The Advice Every Couple In A Sexless Marriage Needs To Hear

The Huffington Post | Brittany Wong | October 24, 2016 | Divorce
It’s incredibly painful when the person you love doesn’t want to be intimate with you. Luckily, there are steps you can take to change that. In a new animated video from The School of Life, acclaimed philosopher Alain de Botton explains how therapy helped one couple fix their strained, sexless relationship. It’s a must-watch for couples who feel more like roommates than romantic partners. As de Botton tells it, real-life couple Johnny and Rachel began to get into overblown arguments two years into their relationship. One night, Johnny punched his fist through the kitchen door ― a turn for the worse that prompted him to go to therapy.  The therapist discovered that Johnny’s uncontrollable anger stems from a childhood where he felt rejected by everyone, especially his mother. Now, he even feels sexually rejected by the woman he loves.  The therapist suggested a solution that’s as “basic as it is brilliant,” de Botton says. “Rather than trying and failing to have sex, Johnny should tell Rachel a little bit more about what it felt like to be him when his hand lay rejected, untouched by her in the bed,” de Botton explains. “Most importantly, he had to stay calm when he explained himself to her.”  That explanation helped Rachel sympathize with her boyfriend ― and Johnny’s decision to take ownership for his feelings and actions changed the relationship for the better.  Watch the clip to see the rest of Johnny and Rachel’s story.  type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Stories +...

‘SNL’ Nailed The Gap Between Halloween Expectations And Reality

The Huffington Post | Alanna Vagianos | October 24, 2016 | Women
Any woman who has celebrated Halloween knows it can be a truly treacherous night ― and not just because it’s a holiday about monsters. As “SNL” reminded viewers over the weekend, it’s a precarious task to rock a mouse (or cheese or cat) costume for an entire night, especially when alcohol is involved.  In a new sketch called “A Girl’s Halloween,” Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong and Vanessa Bayer celebrate Halloween in style. The sketch is a hilariously spot-on parody of how a fun night out with the girls often starts off well ― You all look cute! You’re with your best friends! ― but ends in drunken chaos as you desperately try to find a cheap slice of pizza.  Basically, at the beginning of Halloween you look like this: And by the end of the night, it’s more like this: Watch the hilarious sketch...

Believe It Or Not, Tinder Could Lead To Better Marriages. Here’s Why

The Huffington Post | Brittany Wong | October 24, 2016 | Divorce
If you’re not a fan of swiping left or right, it’s easy to get demoralized about the current state of dating.  But don’t be too alarmed by Tinder and similar apps. As biological anthropologist Helen Fisher explains in The Atlantic video above, our brains are hardwired to look for romantic love, not just fleeting hookups.  “The vast majority of people on the internet, even on Tinder, are looking for a long-term committed relationship,” she says. “Marriage used to be the beginning of a relationship, now it’s the finale and I actually think we’re going to see more stable partnerships and marriages.” Ultimately, today’s singles are being smarter about who they settle down with, Fisher adds.  “They’re taking their time, they’re trying out a whole lot of folks to learn more about themselves and others. And almost all of them will eventually settle down,” she says. “We are built to love.”  And dating apps are taking note that users are tired of swiping. Hinge recently scraped its old design (including the swipe feature) in favor of a new interface that encourages meaningful conversation. Watch the video above for more from...

The Very Personal Reason Why Becky G Is Voting This Election

The Huffington Post | Tanisha Ramirez | October 24, 2016 | Latino Voices
The sacrifices that Becky G’s grandparents made when they migrated from Mexico to the United States have not been lost on the young star. In a new video for Vevo’s “Why I Vote” campaign, the 19-year-old singer, whose given name is Rebecca Gomez, describes how her grandparents’ pasts have shaped everything from her work ethic to her outlook on life and her desire to rock the vote this November. “If I look at the American dream of my grandparents, it was simply just for wanting a better life for their families,” she explains in the video, posted Oct. 21. “For a better education, for better job opportunities, for a safer way of living. If it weren’t for them and their bravery, I would not be where I am today.” The “Sola” singer is joined by her maternal and paternal grandparents, each of whom briefly describes their motivation for migrating to the U.S. and the difficulties that they endured during their individual journeys.  “We came, well I did, because of necessity,” explains Becky’s maternal grandfather, Angel Esquivias, who migrated to the U.S. for the first time in 1966, in the trunk of a car. “Because I was hungry. Because there was so much poverty in my home. So I told them I am going to go to the United States to help everyone.”  The star’s paternal grandmother, Cruzcita Gomez, recalls having a difficult time crossing into the U.S. “[T]hey grabbed me right away,” she explains. “They sent me back. My kids were already here and I was over there, until the following day I was able to cross.”  Becky says in the video that she is “very lucky and very blessed” that her grandparents survived their journeys to the U.S. and that her family is in tact. However, she notes that many people today aren’t as fortunate.  “So many people are just coming here to better their lives or even to just stay alive, from different parts of the world, and to follow their dreams,” she explains. “And the idea of that being taken away from people, families being torn apart ― and I’ve seen it happen ― it breaks my heart.” It’s with all of this in mind that the singer says she’s going to the polls in November.  “The immigration system can be bettered or a bit more efficient or more effective for more people ― all those things factor into why I’m voting,” she continues.  The California native encourages others to join her.  “To make a change, we have to really be aware and not be afraid to speak up,” Becky explains. “It’s one thing to tweet about it, but it’s another thing to go and register to vote and actually use your voice,” .  She concludes: “My name is Rebecca Gomez, and I vote for families to stay together and for people to be allowed to follow their dreams.” To learn more about the singer’s family, watch the the video...

Man Praises 'Luke Cage' For Showing Black Men In Hoodies Aren't Threats

The Huffington Post | Taryn Finley | October 24, 2016 | Black Voices
A black man wearing a hoodie is often seen as a threat in the United States. But one man expressed how grateful he is that Netflix’s latest show “Luke Cage” is helping to combat the stereotype. After YouTube user Crispin Booker asked passengers on a packed New York City train to share their accomplishments, a “Luke Cage” fan opened up about how people usually perceive him whenever he's wearing a hoodie. “Just about a month ago, I’d be considered a scary guy with a hoodie,” he said in a video Booker uploaded on Wednesday. “But just a month ago on Netflix, ‘Luke Cage’ made it cool... I’m young, I’m black and I’m beautiful. Sexy, too.” The other passengers on the train cheered. The 29-year-old continued by telling them that he's working for a hedge fund in Manhattan and he’s donating computers to the education system in Grenada. He may not be bulletproof, but his message helped to save the day. He added, “So I am that new face of the black, tall, dark fellow in a hoodie... with a...

Tom Hanks Joins Alec Baldwin In Ridiculing Donald Trump On 'SNL'

The Huffington Post | Lee Moran | October 24, 2016 | Comedy
“Saturday Night Live” has given Donald Trump another thing to whine about. The GOP nominee blasted Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of him on the show last weekend. So who knows how he’ll react to this weekend’s hilarious spoof segment, which parodied the third and final presidential debate. With Tom Hanks playing the part of moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News, the cast wasted no time in ridiculing the brash businessman’s performance. Cue references to his “bad hombres” and “nasty woman” gaffes, Kate McKinnon as his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton completing her “Trump Bingo” board and the entire planet erupting in laughter after Baldwin as Trump said “no one has more respect for women than I do.” Baldwin even had time to poke fun at his younger brother, Stephen, who this week said he didn’t think his sibling’s impression of the former reality TV personality was funny. ”I’m the one with the heavy hitters,” said Baldwin as Trump. “I have Sarah Palin, I’ve got Chachi, and get this, I even got the best Baldwin brother, Stephen Baldwin.” Watch the full spoof debate in the clip above. Donate to support Muslims, refugees, women, Latinos and other groups Donald Trump has insulted.

Jorge Ramos Exposes Hate Groups' Rise In The Age Of Trump

Carolina Moreno | October 24, 2016 | Latino Voices
HATE RISING Promo from CatTails on Vimeo. “Go back to Univision.” That’s how Donald Trump answered award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos’ question on the specifics of how the GOP presidential hopeful planned to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants from the U.S. Shortly after Trump’s outburst, security physically removed the Mexican-American anchor for Univision and Fusion from the August 2015 event. The incident sparked the idea for Ramos’ upcoming documentary “Hate Rising,” for which he traveled across the U.S. to speak with white supremacy groups, including Neo Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members, as well as Muslims, Latinos and children who have been victims of what The Southern Poverty Law Center calls “the Trump effect.” Trump used his “Go back to Univision” remarks as code for “Go back to Mexico” or “Go back to your country of origin,” Ramos told The Huffington Post. “And just a few seconds later, one of his followers told me, ‘Get out of my country,’” the journalist recalled. “To which I responded, ‘Well, this is also my country, I’m also a U.S. citizen.’ And that’s when I realized that hate is contagious.” Ramos then spent nine months “following hate” across the country. He found people “who are afraid and angry about what is happening in the United States,” he said. “And what’s happening is that white will eventually be a minority in this country in 2044, and they hate that,” Ramos added. The Catherine Tambini-directed documentary will premiere in a dual-broadcast on Univision and Fusion Sunday. Ahead of its debut, Ramos spoke to HuffPost about his views on hate in America and how this election has shaped this country for years to come.  How would you define “the Trump effect?” “The Trump effect” is full of negative connotations and it’s twofold. On one hand, it has given permission to white supremacists and Neo-Nazi groups to express their biases and prejudices. And on the other hand, it has created a lot of fear and anxiety among children.  It may surprise many Americans that these hate groups exist in the U.S. and that there can be such a disconnect between living in a diverse city and elsewhere in the United States. It can feel like two different countries.  You’re right. Prejudice and hate is all over the place, if you live in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago you might not notice. Just travel a few minutes away from major airports ― which is exactly what I did ― in Texas or in Ohio or in Minneapolis and it’s there. Hate is right there. I didn’t feel comfortable saying a single word for almost 3 hours because it was not a safe space to be an immigrant." It’s surprising that these white supremacist groups would let a Latino immigrant, and a prominent one at that, into their space. How did you get them to agree to speak to you?  You know, they didn’t ― and that’s an interesting fact. If we had told them that it was going to be me doing the interview they wouldn’t have accepted. However, what happened is that I was working with the director of the documentary, Catherine Tambini. She’s an American and many of the white supremacist groups thought that they were going to meet with her, not with me. And right at the end, I ended up sitting down and doing the interview. But they didn’t know they were going to be talking to me, otherwise it would have been impossible. Was there something specific that shocked you or made you feel unsafe while working on “Hate Rising”? I met one person in Texas, he’s an imperial wizard of the KKK in Texas, and he told me that he was superior to me simply because of the color of his skin. Simply because he’s white and I’m Latino. I had never experienced anything like that. And he didn’t want to touch me. He made the move to shake my hand, then he pulled back his hand. In Ohio, I went to a meeting of Neo-Nazis and white supremacists, and I didn’t feel comfortable saying a single word for almost three hours because it was not a safe space to be an immigrant. Now that you’ve delved into that world, what are your thoughts on how Trump has affected the rise of hate groups across the country?  Everybody has prejudices and biases, and those biases and prejudices were only expressed in their homes. And then suddenly came Donald Trump on June 16, 2015, and he has emboldened all those groups and he has allowed all those prejudices to come and be expressed under the excuse that they were politically incorrect. And they were politically incorrect for a reason ― because they hurt, because they damage the core of the country, because they are against the possibility of dialogue. This is one of the most important elections of our generation, and regardless of who wins the damage has been done already and it’ll take years to repair what has happened." How do you see this rise in hate affecting the country, far beyond the election?  Honestly, I think this is one of the most important elections of our generation and regardless of who wins, the damage has been done already ― and it’ll take years to repair what has happened when you have a candidate who attacks immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities, veterans, women. It’s really damaging, it affects the core of the country. It is a very dangerous moment that we are living right now. Everybody is going to remember that and I think we ― you and me and all the journalists and all the voters and politicians ― will be judged by how we reacted to Donald Trump.  “Hate Rising” airs Sunday, October 23 at 10 p.m. EST on Fusion and Univision. This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.  Donate to support Muslims, refugees, women, Latinos and other groups Donald Trump has insulted.   Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the...
