Guys, we're about to get super serious for a minute…

There are some terrible and tragic things happening in Venezuela due to their political turmoil. Students and activists have been peacefully protesting their government's social and economic crisis due to the illegitimate & corrupt government.

Filed under: Fashion SmashionR.I.P.Sad SadMissoni

The CEO of Missoni has finally been found and confirmed dead after being missing for ten months.

These must be tough times for the Missoni family.

Nearly ten months after the fashion house's former CEO Vittorio Missoni mysteriously disappeared, he, his wife Maurizia Castiglioni, and their two friends were officially confirmed dead on Tuesday.

This tragic news follows reports that their plane's wreckage was found off the coast of Venezuela in June.

Unlike last time, officials met with the families to deliver the heartbreaking news before releasing the information to the public.

The co-pilot's remains were also found, but the pilot's body is still missing.

In addition to individual DNA testing, the Venezuelan authorities are currently attempting to raise the wreckage and determine what caused the plane to crash on January 4th.

Hugo Chavez Has Died, Losing His Long Battle With Cancer

Filed under: PolitikHugo Chavez

hugo chavez dead

Venezuela has lost its '21st century socalist,' and the United States has lost a self-proclaimed foe. Hugo Chavez has died after a long battle with cancer, according to Vice President Nicolas Maduro.

Known for his speeches on the evils of capitalism, he was very vocal about his hatred for the U.S. — so much so that he began influencing other leaders on their stance. He had not been publicly seen since December, when he underwent his 4th surgery due to the cancer, which was not a good sign for the nation.

He was a polarizing leader, because while he did do some good for his own constituents, even creating massive social programs for the country's poor during his time in office, he was known to suppress politicians and private media who opposed him. He was a staunch believer in socialism, and said he would believe in it until the day he died.

He was 58 years old.

While we do not agree with most of his policies and politics, the loss of a major life should be noted. His friends, families, and followers have lost a leader, and loss is never easy.
