Students Ditch Their Phones For a Week, Report Feeling Happier & More Refreshed

“I’m having a lot of better relationships.”

Students at a university in New York who took part in a test to go without their cellphones for a week reported that they felt refreshed, happier, more focused and more relaxed.

Participants at Adelphi University took part in the course in an effort to break their cycle of dependency and addiction.

One student, Jacob Dannenberg, said he had to go old school to get through the week, writing things down physically and using an actual alarm clock.

However, after the week ended he reported a complete turnaround in his life.

“I’m having a lot of better relationships… it’s a stress-free environment no pressure about social media,” said Dannenberg.

Adrianna Cigliano echoed the same sentiment, saying that without the phone, “I think it’s really refreshing and relaxing… I was able to fall asleep a lot easier.”

She also said that focus and concentration improved and that, “Doing homework was 100 percent easier. I got it done faster, and I was in the zone.”

Professor Donna Freitas questioned the damage smartphones were doing to young people’s lives.

“The fact that no one can focus, that my students can’t sleep… They feel bad about themselves because of social media, and the list goes on and on,” she said.

Students came out of the experiment wanting to drastically cut their screen time and live more in the moment.

“My screen time is definitely going to go down, and I’m going start to appreciate my surroundings more because usually I’m looking at my screen all the time,” Ashley Castillero said.

As we highlight in the video below, smartphone use is a major factor driving depression amongst young people but few people in the mainstream want to acknowledge it.

New BBC Drama Depicts Blacks As Slavemasters, Whites as Slaves

Just what we needed.

Published

on

A new BBC drama series set in London depicts a “dystopian” alternate society where blacks are slavemasters and whites are slaves.

The show, which features controversial ‘woke’ rapper Stormzy, is called Noughts & Crosses and is based on a series of novels by Malorie Blackman.

The plot showcases “an alternative history in which African people had gained a technological and organisational advantage over the European people, rather than the other way around.”

In the narrative, slavery has been legally abolished but segregation remains in place, with crosses (dark-skinned people) being forbidden from having romantic relationships with noughts (lighter-skinned people).

White characters are subservient to and serve black characters, white characters have their names mispronounced and band aids are all brown colored.

“At this point why don’t Netflix and the BBC and all the other leftist media outlets simply make a film or series called ” we hate white people”. It would be so much more honest,” one person commented on YouTube.

The trailer for the show depicts white people as angry mobs of violent young men.

“The things he [Callum] goes through particularly in school happened to me, like asking my teachers where the black scientists were on the curriculum and being told there weren’t any,” said Blackman. “Or my first time in first class on a train and being accused of stealing the ticket.”

While hiding behind “diversity,” the show will merely further enflame resentment and division between whites and non-whites.

“This comes at a time when white actors have been increasingly denied roles, historical roles being handed to minorities thus sacrificing authenticity, and with the BBC having been known to discriminate against white job applicants in the past,” reports National File.

The series is also yet another opportunity for the BBC to fulfil diversity quotas by employing a mostly black cast.

This despite the fact that a new survey of the British television industry by Creative Diversity Network found that BAME [Black and Minority Ethnic] on-screen representation stands at 23 per cent, significantly above the 14 per cent BAME population of the United Kingdom.

Deontay Wilder Blames ‘Black History Month’ Outfit For Tyson Fury Defeat

Excuses, excuses.

Published

on

Boxer Deontay Wilder blamed his ‘Black History Month’ outfit for losing his WBC title to Britain’s Tyson Fury on Saturday night.

In their highly anticipated rematch, Fury defeated Wilder in the 7th round after a flurry of punches that prompted Wilder’s corner to throw in the towel.

After the fight, Wilder said he had “no excuses” for the defeat, but now blames his ringwalk costume, worn as a tribute to Black History Month, for being too heavy.

Wilder wore a 40-pound armored cape and headgear into the ring but said it sapped his energy before the match even begun.

“Fury didn’t hurt me at all, but the simple fact is that my uniform was way too heavy for me,” said Wilder.

“I didn’t have no legs from the beginning of the fight – in the third round, my legs were just shot all the way through. I was only able to put it on (for the first time) the night before but I didn’t think it was going to be that heavy. I wanted it to be good and I guess I put that before anything,” he added.

Wilder made a point of highlighting Black History Month in interviews before the fight.

“They picked the wrong month for this fight to happen,” Wilder told DAZN News. “When I knock ‘The Gypsy Queen’ out, he’ll become a Black History Month trivia question.”

Wilder ended up getting totally dominated by Fury. I guess the trivia question will have to wait.
