DENISE HO

DENISE HO

Denise Ho, or HOCC as her fans prefer, was arrested on December 29 in Hong Kong

I already told you about Hong Kong and the Umbrellas Revolution

Unfortunately the situation is only getting worse, Denise announced with a tweet that she was released, a bit like what happened for Agnes Chow, but the arrest also involved the staff of Stand News, Hong Kong’s pro-democracy website accused of “seditious publication.”

Any act of rebellion, hostility, excitement to subvert institutions that is concretely capable of producing an event that is dangerous to public order is considered seditious.

Hong Kong, a former British colony, returned to Chinese rule in 1997 with the promise that its freedoms, including freedom of the press, would be protected.

Amnesty International asked for the immediate release of all intelligence workers arrested only for having carried out their legitimate work journalistic.

In June, the director of the Apple Daily newspaper: Jimmy Lai announced the closure, again following a series of arrests.

In this tweet there is a letter written in his hand after the sentencing for the commemoration of Tiananmen.

“Systemic erasing of history.”

So Denise Ho’s speech and voices like hers are extremely important

Denise was born in Hong Kong but raised in Montreal Quebec. However, she decided to return to launch her career in Cantopop.

Did you know Cantopop?

Not me, and I found an interesting explanation for it here

Among other things, I also discovered Caffeine Tears by Dear Jane! Now I absolutely have to understand the origin of the name of this band which is called Chinese acoustic rock.

Becoming the song is instead the docufilm that describes Denise’s journey from pop star to human rights activist.

Definitely to follow, don’t you agree?

LOOOP

LOOOP

The word gets longer with an extra O, while the continuous loop gets shorter.

Hennes & Mauritz AB: the popular Swedish clothing chain known as H&M introduces a machine for recycling used clothes directly in one of its shops open to the public, and more precisely in Stockholm.

In 2017 the Swedish government reformed the tax system so that people could get cheaper repairs on used items, and Swedish clothing giant H&M operates a recycling scheme where customers get a discount upon handing in old clothes.

Meanwhile, researchers are working on finding new clothing materials that are less damaging to the environment.

Returning to Looop, the technology was developed by HRITA: Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel and will be visible in Stockholm’s Drottninggatan Store on October 12.

For 150 Swedish kronor, that is just under 15 euros or just 100 (about 10 euros) for those who are enrolled in the loyalty program, it will be possible to directly witness the transformation of the old garment into a new garment.

The process is divided into 8 phases:

  1. cleaning

  2. shredding

  3. filtering

  4. carding

  5. drawing

  6. spinning

  7. twisting

  8. knitting

It does not involve the use of water or chemical dyes, however, it is necessary to add a yarn of “sustainable origin” to strengthen the fibers obtained from the old shredded dress.

What do you think about it?
