Could Male Polish be the next big thing in men’s fashion?   A 2021 report from Persistence Market Research predicted that within the next decade, annual sales of cosmetics for men would double around the world. The sector’s growth is largely down to beard grooming products, but makeup is also on the rise, including nail polish. The annual Met Gala brings together the creme de la creme of American stars at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The 2022 edition took place in early May, and saw many male stars showing off manicures, like Shawn Mendes, Even Mock and Joe Jonas. The trend has been labelled male polish or the “menicure”.   How did male polish start becoming a fashion trend? Is male nail art totally new then? You still don't see many men in the streets with painted nails though do you?  In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

Why are there so many spin offs in the world of cinema? The world of cinema is full of films and sagas which leave their mark on a generation, sometimes becoming cult films.

There are a number of reasons why directors and screenwriters have chosen to carry out such projects. Why are they so important for cinematic works? Why do fans love them so much?

What is cancel culture? Cancel culture is the popular practice of withdrawing support for an individual or company, to such an extent that they become irrelevant as a result. This is usually due to something the person has done or said that is considered offensive. Cancel culture has become an effective tool for so-called social justice movements, with feminist, antiracist and LGBTQ+ activists incr easingly adopting the tactic. It tends to involve the use of social media to call for a boycott of an individual, who may or may not be a public figure. This online shaming can include fair criticism, insulting and harassment to destroy the person’s reputation. Many have suggested that cancel culture has now gone too far, including former US President Barack Obama. Well, internet users can be very sensitive can’t they?  Cancel culture is all the rage at the moment, isn’t it? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!

What does the future hold for Marvel Cinematic Universe? Marvel has long been one of the most prominent and iconic publishers in the world of American comics. From the turn of the century onwards, its cinematic adaptations breathed new life into the franchise. It started out with the somewhat timid X-men film in the year 2000, but really took off with the launch of the shared MCU universe in 2008, when Iron Man was released. Since then, superhero films have become a genre of their own and even took over the blockbuster format. A whopping 28 MCU films have been released in cinemas in total, split across four phases. And with Ms Marvel having recently landed on Disney Plus and Thor: Love and Thunder hitting the big screen next month, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is showing no signs of slowing down.  Has the MCU managed to keep up momentum since Avengers Endgame?

How were the Stonewall riots the starting point for the LGBT struggle? In 1960s New York, a bar called the Stonewall Inn was one of the few establishments to serve homosexuals. It was a shabby venue, which operated without a liquor license and had blocked out windows to protect customers from suspicious looks. Situated in the Greenwich Village district of South west Manhattan, it was controlled by the mafia, who would bribe police to ignore what went on there. That’s right; organised crime had worked out how to exploit catering to gay customers that were considered undesirable elsewhere. How did riots break out at the Stonewall?

How did Internet Explorer go out of fashion?  On 15th June 2022, American internet giant Microsoft cut off Internet Explorer, its long standing web browser. At the end of the 1990s and through to the 2000s, it set the standard when it came to browsers. In 2004 it had a usage share of as high as 95%, a figure which was under 1% by the time it closed, according to Irish traffic analysis website StatCounter. How did its decline come around?

What is the US Supreme Court? Following the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg in September 2020, Donald Trump made clear his desire to quickly appoint a new justice to the US Supreme Court. To understand the importance of this nomination, it’s important to consider the major political influence of the Supreme Court justices. The Supreme Court was created in 1789, thirteen years after the United States Declaration of Independence. It’s made up of nine justices, each of whom has a lifetime tenure. Talking about the institution in 1907, New York state governor Charles Evan Hughes said: “We are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is, and the judiciary is the safeguard of our liberty and of our property under the Constitution.” So are you saying the Supreme Court calls the shots in the US? What about the judges? Do they have significant power?  In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

What are the signs you might have sleep apnea? According to a study published in the Journal of Thoracic Disease in 2015, 10% of all people are affected by obstructive sleep apnea. That figure rises for some population groups, like men, over-50s and overweight people. It’s actually a mechanical disorder, rather than an illness. When we go to sleep, our muscles relax; that's totally normal. But when it comes to people affected by apnea, the soft tissue at the back of the throat collapses, blocking the airway. How long do these breathing pauses last? And how serious is the condition? How is sleep apnea usually detected?  In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

Can carbon farming help us reach net zero by 2050? Reaching carbon net zero by 2050 is one of the main objectives in the struggle against global warming. It’s also part of the Green New Deal the EU agreed upon in 2019. Since the start of 2022, many figures in agriculture have been pushing for a carbon farming policy which would see farmers rewarded for their efforts in sequestering carbon.   How does that work? Why is agriculture in particular concerned by the net zero target? What is expected at a European level?  In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

The annual celebration of World Music Day on 21st June is upon us and Do You Really Know? is aiming to strike a chord with listeners. We'll be harping on about music all week long, covering related terms, concepts and famous figures. What is the Mozart Effect? What if listening to 10 minutes of Mozart could increase your IQ? That’s exactly what Frances Raucher and her Californian research team suggested back in 1993. The theory spread like wildfire around the world, leading to much speculation about the so-called Mozart Effect. The myth comes from the publication of an experiment in American scientific journal Nature. The study required participants to listen to The Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major, K 448 by Mozart. After just 10 minutes, they were better able to solve spatial intelligence tasks which are part of IQ testing. Let’s cut to the chase, does it actually work?

What is art nouveau and how did it flourish around the turn of the 20th century? This aesthetic movement dominated many artistic fields in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was influenced by nature and used trademark organic shapes and sinuous lines, moving away from previous limits to create new kinds of design objects. Let’s take a few minutes to reflect on where art nouveau came from, as well as its major themes and artists. Unlike many artistic waves, art nouveau didn’t come from one particular artist or theory. Rather it marked a change in mentality, and a move away from traditional restrictive art forms. How did the movement start? What are the main characteristics of Art Nouveau works? Who are the main figures of the Art Nouveau movement? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions ! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here : What are subliminals? What is sadfishing?

What are subliminals?

What are subliminals? If you listen to some people out there, they’ll tell you you can improve your self-esteem, change your eye colour, or become a mermaid simply by viewing or listening to certain clips on Youtube. Sounds far-fetched right? Well, the idea is based on subliminal messaging, so let’s discuss how realistic it is. It’s important to distinguish between audio and visual subliminals. The former type often feature unintelligible jabbering, sometimes overshadowed by random ambient music. The extract you can hear in the background comes from a Mark Reynolds clip entitled “Make Him Unblock You On Social Media”  What are the clips themselves actually like? But how can you expect to get physical changes from an audio or video clip? What does science have to say on the matter?  In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions !

What is sadfishing?

What is sadfishing? Since the advent of social media, we’ve gotten used to seeing highlight reels of people’s lives on our newsfeeds. But in recent years, people have been more and more willing to share posts about moments of sadness, rather than acting like everything’s perfect all the time. More authentic, or simply another veiled form of attention seeking and like hunting? The practice has been labelled sadfishing. How did the term come to be created? How widespread is sadfishing then? Are we saying it’s all about getting more likes then? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions ! To listen to the last episodes, you can click here : What is Jurassic Park? What are carbon bombs?

'' Body positivity has its roots in the fat acceptance movement of the late 1960s. Fat acceptance focuses on ending the culture of fat-shaming and discrimination against people based upon their size or body weight. '' '' The body images often portrayed in body-positive messages often still conform to a specific beauty ideal; many people simply don’t feel included in body positivity. ''

Wow, what an insightful episode. It may seem like a Ludacris thing to say, but I believe people (around the world) have been practicing jiko sekinin and just don't know it. There are always people ready to blame victims for their abuse, poor people for their lack of. Rather than the systems designed to continuously oppress.
