Home Improvement

We are now arriving in the 10th month of the year and working from home is still alive and well for most of us. By now, we have been trying to find a way to balance being productive with our 20 Zoom meetings and finding peace of mind at the same time.

It can't be one-size-fits-all. Yes, we can all agree that we all like what we like, but have we considered that maybe our sun sign has something to do with it?

Your Dream Home Office Space, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Virgo

As a Virgo, you are smart, kind, and an amazing friend who gives great advice. When it comes to work, you are always striving to be your best. You value setting up your home as an extension of yourself. You like a uniform and organized type of style. A clean, organized space also helps with destressing. So, a nice bookshelf or space where everything is in its place is a nice addition to your home decor.

Libra

As an air sign, Libras are notorious for trying to find that balance. You are very harmonious where you care about working with others and contributing to the big picture in your head. Because you like balance, you enjoy a classic look with a twist. Think, a classic pattern with a pop of color in your work from home space can really set the vibe for you.

Scorpio

Filled with passion and driven by our emotions, is how we can describe a Scorpio. You are very independent and not afraid to express when you need your privacy at times. You value style where color makes a statement. Style a nice desk, just for you, to shut off the world while reminding you of the beauty in palettes and art to start a productive day.

Sagittarius

The free-spirited Sagittarius. You are truly a wanderer. You are really good at going after what you want and trying new things. It is best to feel that when you are home, that it is yours and no one else's. You can make that happen with handpicked art pieces that speak to you and creating a space that you do not need approval to create.

Capricorn

Capricorns are intelligent and detail-oriented. You are naturally born hard workers and are prone to tradition. You value order in your life and understand the importance of presentation. Create a nice cozy space at home that is appealing to the eye with intentionally-placed aesthetics, where you can find yourself most happy.

Aquarius

Aquarians are considered the rebels of the zodiac. You like to experiment and be unique in your own way. Although you like to be an individual, you enjoy being social and work towards how to contribute your gifts to help others. When it comes to setting a tone at home, you are not afraid to try bold colors and prints. As an Aquarius, you want to be able to send the message of exactly who you are.

Pisces

Pisces are great creatives who have active imaginations. You feel things deeply and have a great way of connecting with others emotionally. Pisces are daydreamers and you value time where you can be present in your creative process. Cater to the daydreamer in you by carving out a subtle space in your home where you can self-reflect and connect with your many ideas. It is something a Pisces like you would really appreciate.

Aries

Starting the entire zodiac off, we have the assertive and energetic Aries. You are known for your fiery confident nature and once you set your mind to something, it will be achieved. You are able to separate your professional goals from your personal goals. Which makes you value a good transition from work to play. When thinking of a nice work from home space for you, you admire understated pieces, an accessory that stands out from the rest but still flows with the rest of the room.

Taurus

My fellow Tauruses. You are loyal, trustworthy, and always the grounded ones among your friend group. You are the anchor of the zodiac. Being grounded means you are in touch with the elements of nature and can tap into your sensuality very easily. You value a space that is out of the norm that stimulates your senses in a positive way. Whether it is a touch of different fabrics, the smell of aromatherapy candles, or the sight of nature, you are able to stay at peace while getting your work done.

Gemini

Geminis, being ruled by Twins, has allowed them to be very emotionally intelligent. You are able to take risks and switch it up when need be. Because you are in tune with your emotions, you are very creative and value mental stimulation. You love spaces that can be a great distraction from your work to help with your productivity. Allow a nice piece of art to take you on a journey. Which is something great for both of your Gemini sides.

Cancer

With Cancers, you will find someone who is caring and looking out for others. You are not a huge fan of big crowds all the time and enjoy a cozy time at home alone or in an intimate small gathering. Because you are so caring, you like to be the nurturer––so much that a space where you can nurture yourself is where it's at. Setting up a space where you can wind down from a long day's work with a good book, a comfy blanket, and a glass of wine. Give yourself a space where you can nurture yourself after nurturing others. For you Cancers, this is where it's at.

Leo

Last but not least, the bold Leos. As natural leaders, you love social interactions and do not mind being center stage. This also explains why work and outward appearances matter to you. You enjoy a style change and making a statement wherever you go. So it should apply at home as well. Try out different patterns and having bold pieces in your space to help motivate you to continue being the best version of yourself.

ACLU By ACLUSponsored

Over the past four years, we grew accustomed to a regular barrage of blatant, segregationist-style racism from the White House. Donald Trump tweeted that “the Squad," four Democratic Congresswomen who are Black, Latinx, and South Asian, should “go back" to the “corrupt" countries they came from; that same year, he called Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas," mocking her belief that she might be descended from Native American ancestors.

But as outrageous as the racist comments Trump regularly spewed were, the racially unjust governmental actions his administration took and, in the case of COVID-19, didn't take, impacted millions more — especially Black and Brown people.

To begin to heal and move toward real racial justice, we must address not only the harms of the past four years, but also the harms tracing back to this country's origins. Racism has played an active role in the creation of our systems of education, health care, ownership, and employment, and virtually every other facet of life since this nation's founding.

Our history has shown us that it's not enough to take racist policies off the books if we are going to achieve true justice. Those past policies have structured our society and created deeply-rooted patterns and practices that can only be disrupted and reformed with new policies of similar strength and efficacy. In short, a systemic problem requires a systemic solution. To combat systemic racism, we must pursue systemic equality.

What is Systemic Racism?

A system is a collection of elements that are organized for a common purpose. Racism in America is a system that combines economic, political, and social components. That system specifically disempowers and disenfranchises Black people, while maintaining and expanding implicit and explicit advantages for white people, leading to better opportunities in jobs, education, and housing, and discrimination in the criminal legal system. For example, the country's voting systems empower white voters at the expense of voters of color, resulting in an unequal system of governance in which those communities have little voice and representation, even in policies that directly impact them.

Systemic Equality is a Systemic Solution

In the years ahead, the ACLU will pursue administrative and legislative campaigns targeting the Biden-Harris administration and Congress. We will leverage legal advocacy to dismantle systemic barriers, and will work with our affiliates to change policies nearer to the communities most harmed by these legacies. The goal is to build a nation where every person can achieve their highest potential, unhampered by structural and institutional racism.

To begin, in 2021, we believe the Biden administration and Congress should take the following crucial steps to advance systemic equality:

Voting Rights

The administration must issue an executive order creating a Justice Department lead staff position on voting rights violations in every U.S. Attorney office. We are seeing a flood of unlawful restrictions on voting across the country, and at every level of state and local government. This nationwide problem requires nationwide investigatory and enforcement resources. Even if it requires new training and approval protocols, a new voting rights enforcement program with the participation of all 93 U.S. Attorney offices is the best way to help ensure nationwide enforcement of voting rights laws.

These assistant U.S. attorneys should begin by ensuring that every American in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons who is eligible to vote can vote, and monitor the Census and redistricting process to fight the dilution of voting power in communities of color.

We are also calling on Congress to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to finally create a fair and equal national voting system, the cause for which John Lewis devoted his life.

Student Debt

Black borrowers pay more than other students for the same degrees, and graduate with an average of $7,400 more in debt than their white peers. In the years following graduation, the debt gap more than triples. Nearly half of Black borrowers will default within 12 years. In other words, for Black Americans, the American dream costs more. Last week, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, along with House Reps. Ayanna Pressley, Maxine Waters, and others, called on President Biden to cancel up to $50,000 in federal student loan debt per borrower.

We couldn't agree more. By forgiving $50,000 of student debt, President Biden can unleash pent up economic potential in Black communities, while relieving them of a burden that forestalls so many hopes and dreams. Black women in particular will benefit from this executive action, as they are proportionately the most indebted group of all Americans.

Postal Banking

In both low and high income majority-Black communities, traditional bank branches are 50 percent more likely to close than in white communities. The result is that nearly 50 percent of Black Americans are unbanked or underbanked, and many pay more than $2,000 in fees associated with subprime financial institutions. Over their lifetime, those fees can add up to as much as two years of annual income for the average Black family.

The U.S. Postal Service can and should meet this crisis by providing competitive, low-cost financial services to help advance economic equality. We call on President Biden to appoint new members to the Postal Board of Governors so that the Post Office can do the work of providing essential services to every American.

Fair Housing

Across the country, millions of people are living in communities of concentrated poverty, including 26 percent of all Black children. The Biden administration should again implement the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which required localities that receive federal funds for housing to investigate and address barriers to fair housing and patterns or practices that promote bias. In 1980, the average Black person lived in a neighborhood that was 62 percent Black and 31 percent white. By 2010, the average Black person's neighborhood was 48 percent Black and 34 percent white. Reinstating the Obama-era Fair Housing Rule will combat this ongoing segregation and set us on a path to true integration.

Congress should also pass the American Housing and Economic Mobility Act, or a similar measure, to finally redress the legacy of redlining and break down the walls of segregation once and for all.

Broadband Access

To realize broadband's potential to benefit our democracy and connect us to one another, all people in the United States must have equal access and broadband must be made affordable for the most vulnerable. Yet today, 15 percent of American households with school-age children do not have subscriptions to any form of broadband, including one-quarter of Black households (an additional 23 percent of African Americans are “smartphone-only" internet users, meaning they lack traditional home broadband service but do own a smartphone, which is insufficient to attend class, do homework, or apply for a job). The Biden administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Congress must develop and implement plans to increase funding for broadband to expand universal access.

Enhanced, Refundable Child Tax Credits

The United States faces a crisis of child poverty. Seventeen percent of all American children are impoverished — a rate higher than not just peer nations like Canada and the U.K., but Mexico and Russia as well. Currently, more than 50 percent of Black and Latinx children in the U.S. do not qualify for the full benefit, compared to 23 percent of white children, and nearly one in five Black children do not receive any credit at all.

To combat this crisis, President Biden and Congress should enhance the child tax credit and make it fully refundable. If we enhance the child tax credit, we can cut child poverty by 40 percent and instantly lift over 50 percent of Black children out of poverty.

Reparations

We cannot repair harms that we have not fully diagnosed. We must commit to a thorough examination of the impact of the legacy of chattel slavery on racial inequality today. In 2021, Congress must pass H.R. 40, which would establish a commission to study reparations and make recommendations for Black Americans.

The Long View

For the past century, the ACLU has fought for racial justice in legislatures and in courts, including through several landmark Supreme Court cases. While the court has not always ruled in favor of racial justice, incremental wins throughout history have helped to chip away at different forms of racism such as school segregation ( Brown v. Board), racial bias in the criminal legal system (Powell v. Alabama, i.e. the Scottsboro Boys), and marriage inequality (Loving v. Virginia). While these landmark victories initiated necessary reforms, they were only a starting point.

Systemic racism continues to pervade the lives of Black people through voter suppression, lack of financial services, housing discrimination, and other areas. More than anything, doing this work has taught the ACLU that we must fight on every front in order to overcome our country's legacies of racism. That is what our Systemic Equality agenda is all about.

In the weeks ahead, we will both expand on our views of why these campaigns are crucial to systemic equality and signal the path this country must take. We will also dive into our work to build organizing, advocacy, and legal power in the South — a region with a unique history of racial oppression and violence alongside a rich history of antiracist organizing and advocacy. We are committed to four principles throughout this campaign: reconciliation, access, prosperity, and empowerment. We hope that our actions can meet our ambition to, as Dr. King said, lead this nation to live out the true meaning of its creed.

I can honestly say that I haven't used Cantu since I went natural back in 2016. It's not that I don't like the brand — let's be honest, Cantu is the holy grail brand that a lot of us probably started our natural hair journey with. It was and still is affordable, accessible, and effective haircare. I somewhat strayed away though because it's very easy to get caught up in trying different brands that some products honestly just get lost in the sea of haircare. Nevertheless, Cantu has dropped a few collections that I couldn't help but try. One of their most recent drops is the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line which works for all hair types but is made with 4C hair in mind.

To say that I love Saweetie is basically an understatement at this point, as time and time again, she's in the news or on my timeline giving me all of my life. Whether she pops up on a thread with her signature, "I know that's right!" or she's seen purchasing an item that an up-and-coming designer made for her just because "everything costs money," like. I mean. She's everything.

Earlier this spring, I wrote an article about the several reasons why marriage is quite different from dating. One of the things that I mentioned was sex. Listen, I know that you've probably heard that the leading causes of divorce center around things like poor communication and financial drama and yes, while that is certainly true, intimacy challenges rank right on up in there as well.
