Waleed Aly and Lee Lin Chin have been nominated for a Golden Logie and some now believe white people are being ignored on our screens.
The internet has been a mess this week after it was announced that two of the six people nominated for the Gold Logie were not white as the driven snow. Hosts of The Today Show joked they were “too white” to be up for consideration. The #LogiesSoWhite campaign has now taken fire and lit up the internet.

Thought I was starting a trend with #LogiesSoWhite. But happy to see ppl are all over it. We definitely need more diversity on Australian TV

Common sense tells us there needs to be more diversity on our screens. Seen any black folk in Home and Away lately? Thought not! And aren’t four of the six people nominated for the Golden Logie white? Why, gosh… that’s two-thirds of the nominees!

Back in 2011, Sweden’s Government PR agency started the @Sweden Twitter account, which enables the Swedish to talk about whatever they want.
Now, to mark the 250th anniversary of the abolition of censorship, you can call a hotline and be connected to a random Swede.
The hotline allows random Swedish residents, who have the spare time and inclination to talk to strange people about their country and, well, just about anything, to sign up to an app and join a list of people available to be contacted. So far at least 3,000 have signed up, and anyone who calls +46 771 793 336 will be connected.
Keep in mind that International charges still apply… but it’s an interesting and quirky way to celebrate an anniversary, if you ask me.
For the past 18 months, you would have to have been living under a rock to have not heard about the lawsuit between Kesha and her producer Dr Luke. The artist is seeking to end her contract with Sony following claims of abuse and rape dating back to 2005.
The Internet is in a frenzy after a New York Judge said “Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime” and dismissed most of Kesha’s counterclaims against her producer.
This isn’t the first time Kesha fans have taken to social media in her support but this time it may not help: the potential outcome of the court proceedings now look dire for Kesha.

Kesha was offered freedom from her label if she lied about not being raped and apologized. Spread this. Make noise. #SaveKesha

Kesha’s fan protests have also now included a #BoycottAintYourMama after it was confirmed the new J-Lo single was produced by Dr Luke. You’re bound to see more of #FreeKesha and #SaveKesha

On April 1st 2016, Google decided to introduce a new feature to their Google Photos app where you can google back through your images using emoji’s. Now you can reminisce back to that great day at the beach with the girls where you all wore amazing bikinis… Why not just enter that Bikini emoji? Or Maybe that night down at Beach Burrito… Why not enter the Taco emoji?
So now the search-engine-turned-global-giant has implemented it full-time! Enjoy searching Ladies and Gentlemen – the feature is available on IOS and Android. – Kezia Hopperus-Buma
