Advice, Af, and Beautiful: About an hour ago, I was in Walmart looking for my conditioner because today is wash day for my hair. As I'm looking for my product, this older white lady approaches me and she says, "Excuse me, miss. Please don't be offended by this." And usually when white people tell me not to be offended, 9 times out of 10, whatever they are about to say is going to be offensive af Anyway, she follows it up with, "My husband and I just recently won our custody battle with our foster daughter and she means the world to us. She's a beautiful African American girl and her hair looks a lot like yours. But I'm afraid because I don't know what to do with her hair It's a lot different from mines and our other children and we are at a total loss. l've tried looking up the YouTube videos and my husband went to the braiding shops so they can teach him how to properly braid her hair, but he's still pretty new and it will be a while before he gets used to it. Do you have any tips you can give me? If you don't have the time, it's okay, really! I just needed a little advice because I want her to look beautiful." Y'all. swear I almost started crying on aisle 6. So for the last 30 minutes, I spent my time talking to her and what products to use and how to properly detangle and comb her hair with the proper tools and what not to do with natural hair. And I showed her a bunch of easier to fol- low natural hair tutorials on YouTube and saved them for her. (I also had to create a YouTube account for her so she could save it for later.) but omfg, she was so sweet, and I could tell that she listened to every single thing I had to say and she took little notes on her little notepad. And what really filled my heart was the fact that her husband actually taking classes from African braiding shops. And she showed me a picture of him wearing a little sweater vest and loafers in a little shop surrounded by beautiful black women showing him how to braid black hair and even the lady he's braiding on is guiding his hands. And omfg. Bless these old white people and their black daughter who l know have new loving parents because they are willing to step out of their comfort zone just to make her feel and look beautiful.

Children, Christmas, and Dude: Kotaku @Kotaku Follow Meet the 19-year-old who spent over $10,000 on microtransactions bit.ly/2jE8P2n 8:50 AM-3 Dec 2017 49 Retweets 117 Likes 29 t 49 117 asynca: tallerthanatitan: punished-rainy-days: Remember what I was saying before about how microtransactions are geared specifically to exploit addicts and “If you don’t like it don’t buy it” isn’t an argument? @asynca Thank you for @-ing me.  For those of you who don’t know, I’m a specialist problem gambling financial counsellor. This means that I’m specially trained, qualified and experienced in aiding the rehabilitation of people struggling with problem gambling, and working with people who are affected by others’ problem gambling protect themselves and rebuild their lives. I spend 30% of the hours of my day job working with these people.  I’m going to make a very bold statement: micro-transactions with a ‘chance’ element are gambling. They are what is called an ‘embedded gambling element’ in a game. They may be a ‘softer’ form of gambling than sitting at a poker machine, but they are gambling. They normalise gambling to children (which has been shown to lead to problem gambling). They groom future problem gamblers, and they exploit people who have neurochemical imbalances (ie, depression). There is a very, very strong link between gambling and mental illness.  People who gamble in games are more likely to susceptible to current and future gambling problems. I’m going to focus on lootboxes in Overwatch, because it’s the game I know the most about. I also know a lot about how poker machines are psychologically designed to be highly addictive, specifically exploiting known psychological triggers to reel people in and keep them spending.  Poker machines ‘tease’ you with near wins which provide you with the same adrenaline and dopamine release as an actual win.  Overwatch lootboxes do the same - you know that feel of seeing a purple/gold coin flipping in the air??? OMG! Is it going to be THAT THING YOU REALLY!!!!-oh.  Bright colours, exciting lights, the visceral feel of pushing the button/spinning the wheel is important to addiction. Blizzard has does the same with lootboxes - by vibrating your controller. By shaking the camera. By having the lootbox rATTLE AND EXPLODE!!!! with your reward. The sounds and specially engineered to build excitement and tensions and remind you of wealth. The ‘coin’ system of the lootbox reminds you of wealth. This is all super deliberate - it’s not a mistake. Using subconscious cues like exploding money boxes!!! the sound of money, the shape of money - that’s likening the process to a lottery.  While it’s quite unlikely someone could actually spend ENORMOUS amounts of money chasing that ‘jackpot’ (the skin they really want for their character, for example), it is possible. HOWEVER, it’s much more likely that the person will have this sort of reward system normalised, will find the element of chance ‘exciting’ (because, dude, we’re psychologically engineered to be more interested in ‘chance’ events than certain/impossible events), and seek out and enjoy other similar passtimes. Like actual gambling with real money.  Every time you gamble, you change the structure of your brain. I’m not exaggerating. Every time you take a chance on that lootbox, you flood your brain with adrenaline and dopamine. The presence of those two neurochemicals changes the density of the receptors of them minutely. After a few boxes, it’s unlikely you’ll become addicted. However, if you keep doing it, your receptors change density so that you need more adrenaline and more dopamine to get the same excitement and pleasure from the hit.  Worse, this rush of adrenaline and dopamine is much, much more addictive to people with mental illness (or a susceptibility to mental illness), as the presence of these chemicals is a very unhealthy (but unfortunately effective, at least in the extremely short term) way of medicating mental illness. Unfortunately, because of the escalating changes in receptor density, it eventually makes mental illness much worse in the long run. There is a strong link between gambling and suicide.  Compare your first lootbox with the lootboxes you get now. Are you getting the same enjoyment? Nope.  Think how many times you bought 11 lootboxes…. only to buy another 11 and another 11 and another 11. It becomes mechanical, pressing that button, opening another lootbox. Kind of like sitting at a poker machine.  Think about how normal the lootbox system seems now.  Chance-based gambling reward systems in games are dangerous, and should be replaced either by work-and-reward systems (you get 10 credits per level, and you can spend these on rewards of your choice), combined with micro-transaction-based currency for people who do not have the time to commit to leveling 300 times for that epic Christmas skin.  Remove chance. Just remove it.

Amazon, Barber, and Barbershop: "THE CUT BUDDY" BY JOSHUA ESNARD: SKIP BARBER VISITS, SAVE CASH AND DO YOUR OWN LINE-UP! moo BLACK AMAZING cOM sapphiredoves: thatawkwardchick17: desbreaux: sima-x: blackamazingdotcom: Keeping your line-up fresh can put a serious dent in your wallet. The multiple barber visits throughout the month add up — depending on the rate of hair growth, you could be shelling out hundreds of dollars, monthly. Joshua Esnard has patented and created the perfect tool that allows people to save cash and cut their own hairlines. As written on the official site, he “created The Cut Buddy in 2000, when he was 13 years old, and patented multiple designs in January 2015, at the age of 28.” This haircut and beard line-up template is an Amazon.com Best Seller and has received rave reviews for its stunning DIY capabilities. The website also features a variety of videos with barbers showing how they use The Cut Buddy to line-up beards and achieve a clean, crisp haircut. It’s flexible – adjusts to all hairlines and head/beard sizes, strong (plastic, rubber design and durable), light-weight (carry it anywhere you go) and small. No more worrying about carrying bulky items while you’re traveling. “It was because of necessity. I couldn’t afford to go to the barber every week…you know? I just didn’t have the time, really. So, creating The Cut Buddy was basically a guide that allowed me to line-up, shape-up [and] tape-up my hair perfectly, quickly and on time.” – Joshua Esnard (Founder), Official Site The Cut Buddy ships worldwide, uses most payment methods, including Pay-Pal and even has a military order form. “The product works for a military man who is overseas and can’t get to a barber. It works for a barber that’s in training…the product has been very special and we’re looking forward to moving to new heights and providing people [with] a tool that allows them to be more confident.” – Joshua Esnard (Founder), Official Site It also makes it possible for you to keep a line-up fresh in between barber visits. $14.99 plus shipping is an excellent deal compared to the hundreds of dollars that are often spent at the barbershop. The Cut Buddy is helping people all around the world become bosses at cutting their own hair. (click for more BLACKAMAZING news) Genius. Support black owned businesses!! Omg!!!

Energy, Internet, and Lawyer: did you know? 18-year-old Joshua Browder created a 'robot lawyer' that allows people to get free, custom-generated legal documents to appeal their wrongly issued parking fines. lt's estimated that his service has already saved users $3 million. PHOTO: DAILYMAIL.CO.UK DIDYOUKNOWBLOG.COM did-you-kno:18-year-old Joshua Browder created a ‘robot lawyer’ that allows people to get free, custom-generated legal documents to appeal their wrongly issued parking fines.  “I’m not trying to encourage illegal parking, but if you look at the statistics, around half of all parking tickets are appealed and I think a lot of these penalties are issued incorrectly. There is big business in penalising motorists, raking in £100 million in profit for councils, according to the RAC.” “I think it is a huge shame that those most likely to make a mistake and get a ticket are the most vulnerable members of society — the elderly and disabled.”  “Money does not motivate me. I just don’t think councils should be unfairly — and in some cases illegally — penalising those who don’t have the time, legal knowledge or energy to appeal.” “I won’t make any money from it because it’s a public service. I just want to help people. There is so much wrong-doing and that to me is a terrible shame. If only people knew what to do about it and exercise their rights.” ‘I hope to also help the disadvantaged fight for their rights, but with all the power of the internet.“ It’s estimated that his service has already saved users $3 million.
