We Asked Non-Welsh People To React To Photos Of Wales And This Is What Happened
Date: Thu, 28 May 2015 21:16:08 -0400
From buzzfeed.com

"I'm trying to figure out how this would look as a location tag on Instagram."

We sent 12 uncaptioned photos of Wales to BuzzFeed offices in the US, India and London and asked them to write down the first thing that came into their heads. This is what they said:

Portmeirion

Portmeirion

Scott (London): NO THIS ISN'T WALES. I'M SORRY YOU ARE MISTAKEN. I expect a huge correction to this story to be added to this later sorry.

Elena (New York): This looks like a scene in a Wes Anderson film.

Hilary (Edinburgh): It's amazing. It looks like a film set, or an Italian village or something. Are those palm trees? Since when did you have palm trees in Wales. And where are the sheep? This can't possibly be Wales, sorry.

Robin (London): Stop lying. This is not Wales.

Remee (London): This looks like the south of Spain?? THIS IS NOT WALES IS IT???

Tabatha (London): This looks like the most Instagrammable place on earth.

The Welsh flag

The Welsh flag

Tabatha (London): The Welsh flag is so powerful. I mean, that's an actual dragon. An actual dragon!

Elena (New York): Is that the missing Hogwarts house in Harry Potter?!

Robin (London): I will always be jealous of your flag. I mean, come on, IT'S A FUCKING DRAGON.

Remee (London): It's better than the England flag, can't deny it.

Nirali (Mumbai): Is this the work of a fandom?

Ivor (New York): I was once told its name was "Idris" but I'm pretty sure that's not true.

Ogwen Valley

Ogwen Valley

Flo (London): That mountain looks bigger than the whole of wales. How does it fit in?

Maggy (London): Literally any minute Frodo and Sam are going to climb up there. Just you wait!

Robin (London): Very pretty. But where's the Nando's?

Scott (London): This is basically 99% Wales. That's why like 123 people live in the middle bit, I think.

Nirali (Mumbai): This is the natural habitat of WEREWOLVES!

Remee (London): I feel like Tom Jones in the picture would lift the mood a bit. Although it's quite a sexy photo already.

15 Toe-Curlingly Extreme Shoes From Throughout History
Date: Thu, 28 May 2015 21:10:11 -0400
From buzzfeed.com

A new exhibition at London's V&A shows blister-plasters couldn't have come soon enough.

Chopines, C15th a C17th

Chopines, C15th a C17th

Upper-class European women were transformed into towering figures with these pedestal-like platforms from late fifteenth century to the seventeenth century. So high were styles worn by Venetian women, that their maids were used as crutches, which probably makes you feel a bit better about making your boss a cup of tea now and again. Height was the most important thing about Chopines, in fact, they wouldn't even be seen when worn. But, the higher they were, the more cloth was needed for the wearer's skirt to reach the ground, acting as a status symbol.

V&A

Long-toed shoes, C19th

Long-toed shoes, C19th

Long-toes have been ever present in male footwear design throughout history (right now, see: estate agent shoes), and in the nineteenth century toes-for-days were particularly prolific. The fact that this particular style is completely impractical goes to show that they could only be worn for leisure, and as such were a serious status symbol.

V&A

Noritaka Tatehanaas Crystal Lady Pointe, 2011

Noritaka Tatehanaas Crystal Lady Pointe, 2011

Lady Gaga and Daphne Guinness are among fans of the gravity-defying, creations by Japanese shoe designer, Noritaka Tatehana, and remember those black heel-less boots that Victoria Beckham caused controversy in a few years ago? Those were his too.

These crystal encrusted "Lady Pointe" shoes are some of his most extreme, lifting the wearer a vertiginous 45cm (18 inches) above the ground. Jury's out on whether anyone can actually walk in them.

Noritaka Tatehana

Vivienne Westwood, 1993

Vivienne Westwood, 1993

The infamous mock-croc platforms that Naomi Campbell fell off during a Vivienne Westwood show in 1993. Obv she styled it out, as only Naomi can, and even wore them out for a night on the town with Kate Moss later.

Their Change.org petition calling for an end to GST on menstrual products gained more than 74,000 signatures. As it pointed out, that little percentage on top of your purchase doesn't feel so little to everyone:

A small tax on tampons/pads/panty liners/menstrual cups adds up when combined with the systemic challenges many women, trans people, genderqueer people, and other menstruators face in terms of their income, housing, and economic stability.

Keeping It In The Family: How Nepotism Is Helping Venezuela's Powerful Families
Date: Thu, 28 May 2015 20:26:07 -0400
From buzzfeed.com

Power in Venezuela is concentrated in the hands of just three families who control government coffers, media and now, pop culture. BuzzFeed News' Karla Zabludovsky reports from Caracas.

Meridith Kohut for Buzzfeed News

CARACAS, Venezuela -- Daniella Cabello smiled sweetly at the crowd, clutching a Venezuelan flag against her white lace minidress. Cabello's voice filled the Karl Marx Theater, in La Havana, Cuba, with an ode to former president Hugo Chavez during a concert for peace in Latin America.

These days, Cabello and her youthful, delicate features seem to be everywhere. She appears frolicking on a white beach for an official tourism promotional video, walking alongside beaming elementary school children in a PSA video belying critics who have spoken out about worsening conditions in the country, and on morning talk shows, speaking about the youth's role in Venezuela's so-called Bolivarian revolution that Chavez started.

And yet, her videos "are atrocious, very kitsch, always corny, ridiculous," said Sergio Monsalve, a Venezuelan film critic who writes a weekly column for El Nacional newspaper, which supports the political opposition. "She is a parachutist with all of the resources of the state," added Monsalve.

Monsalve and many others here believe Cabello's budding celebrity is a result not of any artistic talent but of her father's position: Diosdado Cabello is the president of Venezuela's Congress and is considered the second most powerful man in the country. The Wall Street Journal recently revealed that U.S. prosecutors and the Drug Enforcement Administration are investigating him on suspicion of cocaine trafficking and money laundering.

"Nepotism has radicalized with the arrival of the Fifth Republic," said Monsalve, referring to the political period that began when former President Hugo Chavez assumed office in 1999.

It's not just Cabello. President Nicolas Maduro's son, Nicolas Maduro Guerra, has been appointed as coordinator of the National Film School, according to a number of industry experts. The problem, they say, is that Maduro Guerra has little more than a string of unfinished projects on his resume. He is best known, rather, for dancing under a rain of bills at a wedding in a video released in March.

youtube.com

"Venezuelan society is no longer surprised," said Cesar Batiz, editor of Poderopedia, an online platform that investigates and maps power relationships in the country, speaking of Cabello and Maduro Guerra. Nepotism, added Batiz, is not only on the rise but it "has become normal."

Analysts here say that power is concentrated in the hands of three families and their respective allies -- the Cabello family; the Chavez family; and the Flores family, which includes President Maduro's wife -- who treat the country's coffers as their personal bank accounts, place close relatives in key government positions, and ensure that their children get their wants met at any cost.

While nepotism has been on the rise since Chavez took power, many Venezuelans are becoming increasingly frustrated with the abuses of power as the country confronts near triple-digit inflation, is buffeted by food shortages, and descends into a growing spiral of violence that claims about 16 lives a day, on average, according to crime reporters here.

More worrisome than a pop celebrity and an aspiring film school coordinator are the relatives who control large amounts of public funds, says Batiz.

Take Cabello's family for example: His wife, Marleny Contreras, recently left her position in Venezuela's congress to head the Ministry of Tourism and preside over the National Tourism Institute. His brother, Jose David, who held several high-level positions under Chavez, is the current minister of industries and the director of the National Center for Foreign Commerce. Cabello's daughter, Daniella, does not manage public funds but many here believe she is a key component in a strategy to soften her father's abrasive image.

"I'm going to move some influences around there," said the rising pop star during a television interview with a giggle, speaking about how she convinced the team who produced the tourism spot she appeared in to include a shot of her grandmother's house.

Then there's Cilia Flores, Maduro's wife, who recently launched a weekly television show. The former attorney general and president of congress was said to have as many as 37 relatives in the parliament's payroll in 2008, according to local press reports. Today, her nephew, Carlos Erik Malpica Flores, is the national treasurer and a high-ranking director at the state oil company. One of her sons, Walter Gavidia Flores, is a criminal judge in the capital city of Caracas, Her brother, Bladimir Flores, was appointed inspector general of the investigative police last year.

Chavez's relatives round out the trifecta. They ensure that the former president's grip on power continues. His older brother, Adan Chavez, is the current governor of Barinas State, southwest of Caracas and Chavez's birthplace. One of his cousins, Asdrubal Chavez, is the minister of petroleum and mining. His daughter, Maria Gabriela, was recently appointed Venezuela's deputy United Nations ambassador. Many say she is not prepared for the job, having never held a diplomatic position.

"The sum of it all tells us that they are not qualified," said Batiz, speaking of Chavez's, Cabello's, and Flores' relatives in power. The consequence of nepotism is that "we cannot guarantee democratic freedom, nor efficiency in government, nor a fight against corruption," he added.
