I was watching a "Taboo" about love in prison and a portion of the show focused on a murderer and his wife in Brazil. In Brazil they allow conjugal visits and the show claimed it helped with prison violence and returning to a normal life after prison. I was wondering what your educated view on conjugal visits is...

That sounds quite interesting! I’ll need to check that out. I certainly agree with that statement. In fact, many studies have supported it.

For example, in 2012, a study showed that states which do not allow conjugal visits have more than four times as many incidents of sexual violence between inmates compared to states that allow conjugal visits. These visits also improve the inmate’s behaviour in the same way that other benefits such as classes, books, exercise, and jobs have been proven to do. Prisoners that offer these benefits have time and time again proven to be safer environments for not only the inmates but also the guards.

Conjugal visits are a powerful incentive for good behaviour. Furthermore, conjugal visits pave the way to a successful rehabilitation, making readjusting to life on the outside much smoother thus a slimmer chance of reoffending.


So: I was trying to get some more info on that negligee picture that circulated earlier today and to do so I googled some shit that… well, has probably landed me on some secret service weirdo list now. Of course tons of republican picture manips and idk real weird stuff came up: sadly I didn’t get any more info on the hows and whys someone had that negligee (because really? that’s creepy), but… I’ve found this video from the Associated Press and it’s a story to behold. I can only hope Hillary took it well and wasnt too embarassed about it, poor thing!

From the youtube description of the video: A Brazilian lingerie company has withdrawn an advertisement featuring Hillary Clinton. The Duloren campaign had been using a picture of the US First Lady, showing a tiny glimpse of her panties.
The controversial picture of Hillary Clinton was taken during her recent visit to Brazil. If you look carefully at the lower part of the grainy newspaper ad,  you   can just see a tiny patch of what appears to be her panties.
Accompanying the picture was the slogan:
“Mr. President of the United States: You don’t imagine what a Duloren is capable of.” The White House was not amused, but there’s been no direct comment from Hillary herself about the advertisement - or the lingerie company’s decision to drop it.

Brazilian Portuguese: Food Terms

If there’s one set of vocabulary words I didn’t care about while in the classroom, it was always “food” no matter what language I was learning. But after visiting Brazil, doing a home stay, and staying with a Brazilian family twice, I realize that food and cuisine in any country is really important to learn. 

“Important cuisine items” change with each country. Something like “rice” is really important in Japan but might not be as important in the United States. I’d also like to note that cuisine items differ depending on what region of Brazil you’re in (in this post I’m focusing on the more general items you can find throughout the region). 

Some vocabulary words will be accompanied with pictures because I definitely did not know what a freaking “coxinha” was when I was in the U.S. ;)

**For some people “limão” could be either lemon or lime, but lime could also be “lima” and lemon could be “limão.” 

Churrasco - “Barbecue” (but the Brazilian type) ; The people who work at the churrascaria usually come around with different meat/different parts of the animal meat and cut pieces right where you’re sitting.

**Pastel, Esfiha, Risólis - These three are all more or less breaded pastries but each one is made with a different dough and/or has a different process of being made. You can pick what’s inside or whatever is available to you (e.g. ham and cheese, chicken, “carne” - beef, camarão, etc.)

Queen Maxima’s foreign visits → Brazil, 2012

Argentinian born Maxima is always at her most relaxed when she’s in South America, and her visit to Argentina’s neighbours Brazil was no different. The visit was primarily focused on economy and business, so there was no opportunity to visit charitable projects. After kicking off the tour with meetings with key politicians, the tour branched out to a detailed programme of engagements designed to learn more about Brazilian industry and possible areas of collaboration. They attended seminars on the future of the food business and yacht building- two lucrative industries in the country- and visited Brazilian companies producing aircraft and oil. They then took in the highlight of Brazil’s development as a nation: the stadiums built for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. The next strand of the visit focused on Dutch businesses making waves in the South American country including CRV Lagoa- which increases productivity of the livestock industry- and Paques Brazil- a specialist in purification systems for water and gas companies. But perhaps the key element of the visit came with concrete cooperation agreements. Maxima and Willem Alexander were present for the signing of a joint agreement through the National Industry Confederation, another on waste management, and a memorandum of understanding between Sao Paulo and Anne Frank House on creating safe learning environments. Their unique ability to charm the Brazilians showed exactly why royals have so much power in international diplomacy.

Amid Olympic rush, Brazil’s hotels have joined the fight against human trafficking

With as many as half a million visitors expected to visit Brazil for the Olympics, the global hospitality industry is seizing on the moment as an opportunity to address two important issues at once: human trafficking and youth unemployment. The two are closely related. 

The lack of economic opportunity leaves youth vulnerable to human traffickers who lure them into forced labor and sexual exploitation. Once liberated from their captors, survivors face enormous challenges in resuming their lives, including finding jobs. Hotels, as it turns out, are uniquely positioned to address both of those issues.
