AFL Round 5 power rankings

  AFL Round 5 power rankings Welcome to the Round 5 power rankings, and they’re electric if I do say so myself. There are now only two undefeated teams, Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs, and there have been disappointing upsets and upsetting disappointments and everything in between. 18. North Melbourne Kangaroos No change Being the only side without a win to their name is how they find themselves on the bottom of the power rankings here today. They showed some promise against an exceptionally inaccurate Geelong outfit down at GMHBA, but I suppose that’s all you can expect of North this year.

He said: "Everything we did makes us who we are. But that doesn’t mean we have to drag it around like it’s a ball and chain. I made a lot of mistakes in my life. And you know, living with a mental illness, it just hampers a lot of s***. But you can spend all your time thinking how you could have done it better, or you can try and live a different kind of life ... They’re both about loving rock & roll. One's from the perspective of the guy playing and the other is kind of the perspective of a fan, both of which I’ve lived in my life."

And Adam is keen for the band to go on tour again later this year.

He added to Rolling Stone: "At a certain point, are we just a legacy act that should go play greatest shows or not? I mean, to me, I have no interest in it. We still annoy the s*** out of people by not doing it. We went on our 25th-anniversary tour and played obscure s***!"

Justin Bieber and other celebs accused of cultural appropriation .
Pop culture is a melting pot where cultures and customs fuse and coexist. However, when borrowing is done in bad taste, it's called something a little different: cultural appropriation. It's been a hot topic in recent years, and power dynamics between majority and minority cultures are now being discussed more openly than ever. Recently, fans are upset to see that Justin Bieber has decided to bring back his controversial dreadlocks of 2016, having apparently learned nothing from being called out for cultural appropriation five years ago. The singer brought back the traditionally Black hairstyle while on vacation, and showed off the look on Instagram on April 26. The comment section of his post and the Twittersphere are teeming with criticism, with many trying to explain that Black people have long faced discrimination for wearing the style. Many on Twitter also claimed it was hypocritical of the star to take a “stand against racism” and sample speeches from Martin Luther King Jr. on his new album, 'Justice,' only to ignore the hairstyle’s historical significance and offend Black people. "Justin needs to look into why dreadlocks are considered to be cultural appropriation. If he educated himself on this topic, he wouldn't be doing it," one Twitter user said. Cultural appropriation can be pretty divisive, so click on and check out some other cultural appropriation cases.
