Hello my lovely readers! Here are 5 things I'd like to share with you today:
What ad I watched
This week Nike released a highly controversial ad (well, at least to Americans) starring NFL player Colin Kaepernick. Another divisive battle between Conservatives and Liberals, where one side is boycotting the company and the other is praising it. If you don't know why, Vox wrote an article explaining everything. Apart from that though, it's a great ad.
What quote I'm pondering
“I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.” - Thomas Jefferson
What tech I discovered
SuitX is a California-based company that has been working on modular exoskeleton solutions for industrial workers, soldiers, and people with mobility disabilities. They're still in Beta, but the tech looks promising and what they've created so far is pretty impressive. Maybe we'll all be just like Iron Man some day very soon!
What great news I heard
This week India's supreme court unanimously ruled to decriminalise homosexuality in a landmark judgment for gay rights. The court ruled that a 160-year-old law banning sex “against the order of nature” amounted to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and was unconstitutional. This is fantastic news for a nation of 1.3 billion people, and here's hoping that it'll have a positive effect and inspire change in some of India's neighbouring countries too.
What I'm listening to
Childish Gambino just released a super cool animated music video for his track 'Feels Like Summer'. Here it is!
Thanks for reading, enjoy your weekend and I'll talk to you next week!
