Pixar and Disney Working Towards Better Representation

The importance of representation is important in all industries but this is even more relevant for Hollywood where there are 15 male directors for one female. In acting too, it is rare to see women in powerful roles. Women are rarely seen in greater or equal numbers in casts and the occasional Black Widow is not going to rectify the problem. Same goes for POC characters and actors in Hollywood movies. Disney and Pixar have finally vowed to do their bit towards the improvement of these statistics. Ray Lane of AquionEnergy says he’d certainly love to see them try.

Given that Pixar and Disney appeal to children, it is important for them to have non-white and non-male characters because children are impressionable. Instead of teaching children about a wayward and impossible concept like ‘racial blindness’ that negates the struggles POC and women have gone through, Pixar is taking a much stronger and logical approach to the entire thing.

If you are in the mood for some films that have good representation, there are some movies and shows to check out like Elementary. The show might be BBC Sherlock’s inferior cousin in terms of sheer quality of cases but it does not disappoint in terms of representation. Whether it is a trans Mrs. Hudson or female Watson, the show is above all the other adaptations in this area. If reading is more your style, then check out Brandon Sanderson, a fantasy author who has so many great female characters and people from different nationalities that not one character is under undue pressure to be all-encompassing.

The Dorchester Collection, A Leader in Hospitality

As a business person who travels across the world more times than not, I’ve had my fair share of 5 star hotels, and The Dorchester Collection might just be at the top of my list as being one of the most prestigious hotels in the world.

45 Park Lane was where I experienced quality and service like never before. Located beside some of London’s best parks, and world class galleries, The Dorchester Collection sits in the middle of upscale Mayfair so that people like myself are smack dab it the middle of the exquisite dining, vibrant night life, chauffeured cars, and chic streets.

It’s honestly one of the things I could appreciate about The Dorchester Collection. I was given options when it came to relaxing in or out the hotel. There were an over abundance of options when it came to connecting with Central London. Being apart of the upper crust of English society during my stay made my experience worthwhile.

The Dorchester Collection has taken the time to set themselves apart from other hotels by being a non-smoking hotel, with non smoking rooms, suites, and family rooms. My suite was setup with a minibar, air conditioning, and free internet. Unlike other hotels, The Dorchester Collection offers not only free and public Wifi, they also offer Paid internet, well as paid wifi.

I was able to utilize the business center which also had internet access. During the time I had my son with me, we were able to take advantage of the children Activities that were offered by the hotel. Not only were their children’s activities, there was also babysitting available to parents who need it.

The room service was respectful and timely, and I was able to have my laundry washed with their exceptional laundry service.

The fitness center was clean and fairly big, which was different compared to other hotels I’ve stayed in.

The Dorchester Collection has always been known to deliver high quality services around the world. They are the leaders in hospitality for a reason and that reason is demonstrated during every one of my visits.
