Craft Time: Make A Thanksgiving Day Chocobo Hat

It’s 4pm on Thanksgiving Day. You’re probably stuffed with turkey right now, or in the process of stuffing yourself with turkey, or still waiting to stuff yourself with turkey. (If you ate ham, get the hell out of here.) You know what that means? It’s time to make hats! Making turkey hats is an old Thanksgiving tradition. It’s not hard to see why; turkey hats combine two of our favorite things: food and fashion. Hats also make your head look bigger, which will convince people that your brain is huge. People who wear hats are often the life of the party. Need proof? Check out this picture of Spock. Boy what a boring guy. Now, what if we throw a hat on him? Instant party animal! You too can be this guy. But instead of making the traditional Turkey hat for Thanksgiving, why not make a hat using gaming’s first bird: the Chocobo. Read on to find out how. Making Chocobo hats is a fun family affair. It’s also practical. If that annual post-meal brawl breaks out, you’ll already be armed with scissors. Here’s what you’ll need to get started: Construction paper (all colors) Scissors Glue (edible) The unspoken disgust of your older cousins Kenny Loggin’s Top Gun Soundtrack Begin by cutting a piece of yellow paper into a large circle (don’t worry it can’t feel anything.) This is what a circle looks like: Next, cut out a beak and some eyes. Here is what you’re aiming for: If your uncle begins screaming about how his ex-wife wrecked his boat or your nephews start a backyard wrestling match in the living room, crank up Kenny Loggin’s "Danger Zone" and shut out the sound of smashing dishes. Next: putting it all together. Families can be hard. Is your mom screaming at you to take out the garbage? Is your Dad yelling at you, because he doesn’t want you to cut off all the cat’s hair? Is some old man complaining that you broke into his house and stole his war bonds? Ignore them. They don’t understand you. You’re an artist. You need those war bonds to make your Chocobo hat. It’s time to put the whole thing together. Glue your beak and eye to your circle and then affix the whole Chocobo head to another piece of paper (or war bond) and wrap it around your head. Feel free to add a few little extra details to your hat. Really make it your own. Add some extra tuffs off hair or a ruffled brow. If your Chocobo is filled with friendship and magic, add some glitter. If you’ve followed our instructions carefully, you should end up with something like this: *Results may vary There you have it. You are now free to experience the true joys of Thanksgiving. Throw away the unused scraps of paper (ignore their cries for mercy; they weren’t good enough to make the cut.) Now, go have some pie and hug your grandma – not only will she be freaked out by your new hat, she’ll won’t know what to make of this random affection. And remember, if you get bored later, you can always make Chocobo hats for your pets.

    Facebook investigated over &#039 reportedly;systemic' racism in hiring

    Facebook has publicly focused on fighting racism, but you can find concerns that’s not translating to its recruitment practices. Reuters sources say the united states Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is investigating possible “systemic” racism in Facebook’s hiring and job promotions. Facebook program manager Oscar Veneszee Jr. and four candidates have reportedly accused the social networking of discriminating against Black applicants and staff through subjective evaluations and pushing racial stereotypes. In July 2020 three of individuals brought the case, in December with a fourth joining.

    by August 2020

    The EEOC tapped investigators for systemic cases, but they’ve only received briefings from both sides of the case in the last four months.

    As the full extent of the alleged violations isn’t clear, among the policies in dispute is due to hiring bonuses. The business hands out around $5,000 in bonuses in case a referred candidate is hired, but those referrals tended to reflect the prevailing employee demographics and disadvantage Black applicants (who constitute 3.9 percent folks employees by last June).

    You can find no guarantees the EEOC investigation shall result in formal action. The Commission declined to comment, but Facebook said it took discrimination accusations “seriously” and investigated “every case.”

    This is not the 1st time Facebook’s hiring has come under fire. In 2017, a Bloomberg report remarked that a handful of executives typically made final hiring decisions and tended to use metrics that favored culturally similar candidates, such as people endorsed by existing staff or those who went to certain schools. Facebook maintained that it had diverse hiring teams that brought in candidates from a wide range of backgrounds, but its incentive system was having troubles at the proper time.

    If the allegations endure, they’ll claim that some of these years-old complaints still persist. An EEOC determination may lead to reforms, even though it’s just through public pressure.
