Women are wearing athleisure clothes from Fabletics all the time when they leave the house casually, and it is important that all women feel comfortable just tossing on their leggings when they want to leave the house.

State of Emergency by Maduro

Nicolas Maduro has declared a state of emergency in the midst of the economic crisis that the state is facing. Jose Manuel Gonzalez, a doctor, thinks that the emergency actions are supposed to last for 60 days. Some leaders in the United States are fearful that the state is on the verge of a meltdown that it won’t be able to get out of, but Maduro claims that he is trying to protect his people. There is a shortage with food and medicine. Some want Maduro to be taken out of office while others want to give him a chance to try to change things in the state. One things that is certain says Gonzalez is that there isn’t a lot of time left to make a difference in the lives of the people who live there as basic needs are going unmet.

North Korea Condemns Yeonmi Park Amidst Park’s Rise.

North Korea has become almost mythical thanks to their disregard for basic human rights and a lack of sensibility in the world of global politics. North Korea is a ticking bomb that broods loudly, fenced behind their need for welfare from other countries and their distaste for anything beyond their border. Nothing regularly escapes this country, not people or news, but when a resident manages to defect they become a target of Pyongyang and the government. Yeonmi Park was a young girl, just 13 years old, when she escaped across the Yalu River before being summarily swept up into a torturous adventure that would test her very ability to survive. Now Pyongyang is coming after Park, according to Reason.com.
When a defector manages to escape North Korea they typically tend to go underground, metaphorically speaking. Once you’ve escaped the oppressive regime you don’t want to drag any more attention to yourself. Vocal defectors have a habit of getting poisoned, killed, or smeared so badly that their own families back home tend to hate them. Park didn’t stay quiet. In fact, the porcelain skinned young woman penned a book detailing her journey from inside the borders of North Korea and throughout here years stuck inside of human trafficking, “In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom”.

The Amazon released book is a heartbreaking tale, completely true, that details how Park grew up in complete starvation mode inside of North Korea. Inside of its pages Park talks about how her father was dragged off to a forced labor camp and how her mother was routinely assaulted in front of her own eyes. She tells of a government that was everywhere and nowhere all at once, making you paranoid to ever speak lest you say something that would somehow condemn you in the eyes of the oppressive regime.

Despite all of Park’s reasons to fear Pyongyang she hasn’t backed down. Park is becoming a vocal leader in the movement for human rights across the globe and especially in her home country. Park wants to make her journey the last of its kind and she’s speaking out to make it happen. Pyongyang and the rest of the North Korean government is doing everything they can to discredit her.

Venezuela Wants to Reenter the Diamond Market

One of Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro’s initiatives to counter the recent extensive recession in Venezuela, which was triggered by collapse of global oil prices, is to re-enter the diamond market. Environmentalists like Norka Luque are protesting the plan as diamond mining can be hazardous to ecosystems, cause air and water pollution, create hazardous pit mines, and expend enormous amounts of energy. http://www.isfoundation.com/news/environment/dark-side-diamonds#sthash.IQG01sEx.dpuf
Venezuela left the Kimberly Process Certification Scheme, the system set up in 2003 to stop “blood diamonds,” diamonds produced in war zones and linked to humanitarian abuse, from entering the world market, in 2008 when former president Hugo Chavez declined to participate. This has meant loss of a multibillion dollar diamond trade. http://www.thenational.ae/business/economy/uae-set-to-back-venezuelas-return-to-diamond-trading

Maduro is taking steps to bring that trade back to Venezuela. Delegates came with Luque and visited the Guaniamo region of the state of Bolivar in Venezuela to certify that Venezuela was complying with legal and environmental conditions, a prerequisite of readmission to the Kimberly Process.

Positive environmental practices would include pollution monitoring, use of energy efficient programs, and conservation of the ecosystem by replacing topsoil, reseeding, and recycling.  Open-pit gold mining is also set to begin in the Orinoco Arc, which comprises approximately 12 percent of national territory in Venezuela.
