Barbie explains racism in new vlog
Barbie has been much more than just a toy for children for years. For example, maker Mattel is committed to women’s rights and in Barbie’s latest vlog on YouTube, she explains ‘herself’ how racism works. She does this together with Nikki, another Barbie, and asks about her experiences as a black girl. The video explains in great detail how racism works and Barbie and Nikki do not shy away from painful examples. Very good of Mattel for making this video. Many people agree with that, the reactions to this vlog are full of praise. Watch the vlog here!
The Mario Cafe at Universal Studios Japan has opened
Universal Studios in Japan is an enviably cool theme park in itself, but it just got even better. The Mario café is open here. The attention to detail in this cafe is truly fantastic. And even though they are reminiscent of those nasty air levels, the mushroom tables are very comical.
Fleetwood Mac returns to the charts with ‘Dreams’ thanks to TikTok

A dog’s heart rate goes up when you say “I love you.”
I just met you, but I love you. It’s a great quote from the dog from Pixar movie Up. Did you know that when you say ‘I love you’ to a dog, its heart rate goes up? Canine Cottages discovered it by tracking dogs for a week with a heart rate monitor. Normally a dog’s heart is about 67 beats per minute when the animal is just resting. When an owner says ‘I love you’, the heart rate suddenly goes to an average of 98 beats per minute. A big increase! A dog’s heart rate also goes up about ten beats per minute when you have eye contact. Would telepathy still exist?
