Introducing Being Trapped in House in A new Light

Every day at this time people are feeling trapped, in their own homes, and the feeling of their liberties is taken away. All because of the disease COVID 19. Which I wrote a post on Keeping Your Distance To Stay Safe

At the time of writing this post, there is no cure at the moment. And there is a great possibility there may never be one. thus meaning our ways of living are going to be changed forever. However, right now we are just bumbling along trying to survive personally and as a human race. Each country has there own way of dealing with what is going and here in the Uk, there has been a slight division between England and the rest of the Uk so it is more difficult to decide on which bit of information to make your own decision on what you should do.

So being disabled the same rules apply as before meaning we have to stay indoors.

The rest of the people who can work from home must do so and those who can not, go to work in their office and get there either by cycling or walking if possible or by car if needed but not by public transport unless necessary and then they should wear masks although this is not compulsory. 

All this on top of the things that companies have to do to ensure that their staff is safe. For now, this also means that any of the retail and entertainment sectors are closed unless they are online which is difficult as they bring in a lot of money to the country as does the tourism sector. Which has also been severely damaged by what has happened!

At the moment, all the schools are closed although they are opening in staggard stages rather than all the children at once.

The problem I am seeing personally is that there are still people who will take things to their own hands and put pressure on the frontline services which are the health and food industries.
It is a shame because if things are followed as if they were meant to be then life may get back to some kind of normality. Things will never be fully the same again and we will have to change our lifestyles and the way we do things. The feeling of being trapped in the house is very strong for everyone because of what is happening.

All these changes came so quickly, that many are struggling to find structure while missing friends and family as well.
Being social animals humans are on the whole this is the biggest issue as we can't hug anyone outside our own house and we can only stand 2m away from people who we can see individually. So family members in different houses we can't touch. Which is another form of isolation!

The things I am missing the most are seeing my friends and family as well as going to the salon and beauty shop as these are things that I find necessary as I cant do these things.

What are you missing if anything?

4 Things You Can Learn from Studying Makeup of Princess Leia

So its May the Fourth. "May the Force be With You" as the saying goes.

What are you doing in this unprecedented time? Are you having an impromptu Star Wars Party without the costumes?

What about the simple makeup look that Princess Leia wears in the film "A New Hope"?

In the beginning, it was the seventies and there was nothing quite like it. George Lucas made a change in the world of the movie world. Yet makeup-wise nothing is as quite as iconic as Carrie Fisher's makeup and hair.

Carrie Fisher was the daughter of one of the old school Hollywood Power couples of the 50s, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. While also being a comedian and actress She also was the mother of Billie Cathrine Lourd who is in the later star wars movies.

Carrie died of cardiac arrest 26th December 2016.

In the first scene that you see Princess Leia, she is wearing heavy black eyeliner yet neutral eyes with a strong pink blush and a nude lipstick.

In the next scene, we see her being held by Darth Vader and the makeup she is wearing neutral greys as a subtle eyeshadow with pale blush and pink lips

In other scenes, she is wearing subtle dark shades shadows with brightness with the use of lipsticks. Due to the darkness of the story, the makeup lightens the mood a little.

The final scene is when she is wearing orange, brown eyes with again a neutral blush and bright lipsticks as it is when she is giving medals to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca.

These looks are very simply done yet can be done badly. 

Chose the right tones that fit your eye colour as well as your skin tone. Otherwise, they can come across as stark and shocking which is not what I perceive the makeup was mean to do in the movie.

Make sure you remember to have fun.

May The Force Be With You

World Press Freedom Day Uncovered

So it is a sleepy Sunday in the #Uk and most people have got their Sunday paper to read and discuss with family members or if on their own to find out more in-depth about what is going on in the world nationally and nationally.

They may also have the local paper delivered to find out what is going in the local area.

This happens in most countries and today is known as World Press Freedom Day. 

Set up in 1993 by the United Nations to celebrate the freedom of the press and its ability to report on anything that it deems important. However, whatever and whoever it thinks is important.

Last year the theme was "Media for Democracy: Journalism and Elections in Times of Disinformation" and this year I have the feeling that this year the theme will be "Covid 19 and How the World Delt With It?"

There are so many forms of press these days too.

In 1980 the press began to move things online and as a student in the 1990s I was able to research topics that I needed to whilst doing my GCSEs and As levels at college. And now nearly everyone reads their news off the internet via some kind of technology. Whether it be a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or pc and everyone can be a journalist of some sort or another.

Before all this, though everyone got their news from the newspaper. You would see the latest about what happened politically, socially, both nationally and internationally. Although the news might be a day or two later than when it actually happened as getting it quickly meant actually getting people to interview people and get the information that was needed then writing an article on the topic in question.

Nowadays news can and is put out as it happens which can be useful yet at times can be dangerous because of things can be said out of context and make a situation worse.

A lot of the time it is because of the general public interest for gossip and famous people. At times some people want to become famous yet don't realise that their lives are under so much scrutiny these days that everything they do and say and can be misconstrued.

So my question is "What Is The Freedom of The Press?"

Before all this instant access that is a double-edged sword, there was the time that things were reported after being subjected to some kind of code of conduct.
Is this code of conduct needed now?
That is a question everyone should think about because

What would you want others to know about you?

Because every time you put information or anything on Facebook or the internet in any form anyone can search for you and know everything about you.

So now the question can be changed into these forms.

What do you want to know about what is going on around you locally, nationally and internationally?
What is important to know?
Who is important to know about?

Because of these questions, it has been twisted at times particularly from the 50s and 60s to now, in the UK. I am not here to put blame on any form of the press but it comes from peoples greed of knowledge and gossip.

People are very social human beings but they also want privacy.  Yet these lines are blurred and things are being done and said that makes no sense except to make stories.

So is this code of conduct that was followed up until the 50s and 60s still relevant?

When isn't the point of the press though meant to be reporting the truth rather than telling stories full of half-truths. 

Therefore isn't the code required to make people accountable to what is being said?

Rather than having the press in whatever form being sued for saying something that isn't true.

Understandably there has to be some sort of legal procedure too especially as information has been got in very dubious ways which shouldn't be appropriate.

Many papers have been sued for various reasons over the last 30 years because they got information in dubious and quite possibly illegal ways. Therefore having to close down or payout copious amounts of money or even both.

Unfortunately these days in some respect the fact that anyone can be press reporters there is so much crossed wires that no one seems to know the moral of right or wrong.

Another way of saying it would be what is truth or lies???

Also, the press can be swayed to support a particular political stance rather than just facts making the general public think the way the political party want them to.

So, for now, the question is "Is there need for the press in the formal sense of newspapers?".

I would love to know what you think about this topic.

Love and Peace
