Closure of Indigenous communities a human rights violation, Melbourne protesters say – video

Indigenous protesters in Victoria say they’re backing the right of Western Australian Indigenous communities to stay on their traditional homelands – because they don’t want them to lose the connection they’ve fought to get back. Tens of thousands of people across Australia have protested against the WA government’s decision to stop providing services to remote Indigenous communities . In Victoria, Indigenous people were forced from their land generations ago – and some people have spent years trying to rebuild the culture that was damaged when the link was severed Continue reading…

T.J. Gibbs to Notre Dame: Fighting Irish Land 4-Star PG Prospect

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish added a big piece to their 2016 recruiting class Sunday, securing the commitment of 4-star point guard Temple “T.J.” Gibbs.

“I just really fell in love with the campus and everything that was going on there,” said Gibbs, per Scout’s Evan Daniels. “I felt comfortable and like I was at home. I definitely see how coach was really able to build up their guards. They had Jerian (Grant) and Demetrius (Jackson). Looking at all those guys, I can be one of those guys and fall right into line.”

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Gibbs is the No. 7 point guard in 2016 and the 44th-best player overall. Alex Kline of The Recruit Scoop thinks the West Orange, New Jersey, native is a great addition for Notre Dame:’s Adam Finkelstein envisions Gibbs leaving a lasting legacy in South Bend:

Gibbs is also the first commitment for head coach Mike Brey in 2016. He’s starting out the class on a high note with Gibbs’ imminent arrival.

Brey is doing a great job of creating an assembly line at point guard. With Grant graduating, Jackson will take a larger role on the court. And when it’s time for Jackson to move on, Gibbs can take a starring role.

OITNB Star Taylor Schilling Shuts Down Social Media Fame, and The Kim K Culture!

About time someone’s had the guts to say it!

Obviously, this generation is entirely too consumed in social media and technology, to the point that we didn’t even see this one coming. Star of the hit Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black, Taylor Schilling didn’t hold her tongue on the topic in the new June issue of ELLE Canada. Schilling expresses that the internet only makes you feel more alone, depending on likes and comments from others about your lifestyle is not the direction for true happiness.

“There is something so sad about going online and seeing almost everyone shouting ‘Notice me, notice me!’ Which is such a human desire—to be acknowledged,” she says. “But me responding to that with some sort of ‘You’re noticed, you’re seen’ only perpetuates the loneliness. Because I’m not seeing you; I’m not noticing you.”


Schilling, 30, believes that validation should not be dependent on social media. Does she have a point? Ladies lets rewind and think about it here – How many time’s have you gone shopping and thought about how many likes you’d get on Instagram with this? Be honest because that’s the problem. Taylor went on in to explain that people on social media sites are not being truthful and she’d rather live in the real world than in these platforms.

“It has almost become a defiant thing at this point because I do not believe this celebrity Kim Kardashian culture is what I signed up for,” she tells the magazine. “I’d rather create something honest than try to create something for a social-media account.”


It’s very unlikely to run into someone without a social media profile regardless of what site. She explains that it takes more courage to be real online than in real life.

“It takes a lot of bravery to be authentic and honest and to take that social mask off in order to connect with another human being. So much of what makes us who we are is smoothed away online. And what truly connects us is the wrinkles, not the smoothness.”

Would you dare putting a photo up where everything wasn’t On Fleek ? Taylor Schilling may be hitting the nail right on the head.
