March 17, 2015 – Every hit TV show will have its own fan base. The same goes with My Little Pony. Although it was mainly intended for little girls, its latest reboot has given rise to an unprecedented fandom: the Bronies.
The Bronies are very unique among other fan bases because they consist of adult men who are typically fond of watching a show that is focusing on a demographic of little girls. The Bronies have definitely shocked most parts of the world and that shock came with a lot of cynicism and criticism.
But for the Bronies, their fandom was a blessing as evidenced by a computer science student who got his big break with the help of the Bronies.
Canadian Peter Deltchev is a computer science student. Besides that, he is also a dedicated Brony. In fact, he is an integral member of the Brony fandom in Canada. What’s remarkable about Peter is that most of his successes can all be attributed to his involvement with the Brony community.
He says that the opportunities that came knocking on his door are all thanks to the Bronies because through them, he was able to deploy his talents.
Peter Deltchev is also the founder of the Ponyverse, a so-called ‘super community’ of different My Little Pony fan sites.
Although he considers himself a person who works in the background, he has contributed a lot to the Brony cause. He helps run BronyCAN, the biggest Brony convention of Canada, and thanks to him, they have a huge forum which has about 30,000 members. Deltchev is also a founder of a number of fan sites related to My Little Pony.
Deltchev says that many people think that Bronies are typically man-children who don’t have a purpose in their lives. They think that Bronies are miserable men who find relief with cartoons for girls.
But he says that he is a living proof that Bronies are not what they’re misconceived to be although he did not deny that there were members like that. He says that he is one of those who had their careers launched thanks to the Brony fandom.

The International Monetary Fund is predicting India to overtake China’s economic growth this year. The south Asian power nation has improved immensely its economy for the last few years. Its market indices are pushing in new highs. The different industries in India are outperforming each other. Specifically for the textile and apparel industry, market analysts predict that it will cross the $350 billion mark in the year 2025.
Many investors are confident that the boom in the textile industry in India will continue. The prediction that it will cross the $350 billion mark will potentially happen even before the year 2025 if the country diversifies into new product categories like the Man Made Fibers (MMF).
The government on the other hand has ambitiously set a goal of $650 billion by the end of 2025. In a trade expo of different textiles, the head of the industry expressed that the government’s standard might be too daunting to achieve. The $350 billion set by analysts is the more realistic goal to achieve within ten years.
The textile industry in India generated yearly revenue of approximately $100 billion. The exporting of apparels and textiles alone contributed to as much as $60 billion of the annual revenue. The market in China is perceived to reach an annual income of $300 billion.
The share of India in the textile industry is just about 4 percent compared to China’s 44 percent. The Indian businesses have a lot of hard work to do according to market analysts.
The Man Made Fibers (MMF) takes a share of 30 percent in the fiber consumption of the country in contrast to at least 70 percent in the world market. The high targets being set for the textile industry will only be made possible if the Man Made Fibers will tremendously grow. Once the MMF soars to new highs, fiber requirements in the country will also improve.
One aspect that India needs to give attention is the equipments and facilities of its production center. India needs to improve its production facilities and efficiency in order to eclipse other leading countries in the textile industry.
The fostered youth may think that they are underprivileged; in fact, college was not even an option to them before. But the people at Cerritos College thought of the ways the fostered youth can cope up with college. The Leaders Involved in Creating Change or simply LINC was established to help fostered youth become more independent through counseling and tutoring in Cerritos College.
Everybody knows that being a fostered youth is difficult enough for them to be thinking about college but Cerritos College wishes to help them through the different services that they offer on and off campus.
Some of the services they are offering are academic counseling, tutoring, and access to food pantry, providing college materials, various workshops and emergency bus tokens.
The LINC program may not be known to most of the student population. That is because this program and all of its benefits is exclusive only for the current and former fostered youth.
Yvette Tafoya, the EOPS assistant director, said that LINC’s biggest benefit is that it allows the students to develop a goal that they thought was impossible for them to achieve.
Tafoya added that many of those fostered youth didn’t even think that they would be able to go to college and now that they’re at Cerritos College, they want to help them and make them understand the benefits of going to college and giving them hope.
In order to further prove LINC’s positive effect on the fostered youth, Zuleika Dixon, a fostered youth herself, said that LINC has helped her in many personal ways. They were the ones who helped her prepare her resume and had even given her tips on presentation and speaking so that she could land good interviews inside the campus and another company.
Dixon also said that the most helpful part of the program were the workshops and appointments because they were delivered in a more personal way and that they have an understanding of what students like Zuleika need. She also said that LINC had helped her whenever she felt like being singled out. They help the foster youth to avoid feeling lost in the crowd and disconnected from the others.
The steep decline in the prices of oil is always an interesting topic for discussions. When I met with these guys from www.perth-web-design.com.au/ we got to talking about the impact of the low oil prices on business and consumer spending based on the latest breaking news.
The general consensus is lower prices of oil is good for the economy but the truth is there are winners and losers. For Australia, the impact on energy exports and capital imports are complex. A US$40 decline in oil prices will equate to an income transfer of around US$3 trillion from oil producers to oil consumers. If the 40% cut in oil prices is sustained it is generally assumed to increase global GDP by at least 80% per annum.
The favorable effects of low prices of oil are the increased propensity for consumers to spend. On the other hand, low prices of oil will force the government to curtail programs and subsidies because oil companies who are financing these ambitious public spending programs have limited ability to sustain the projects from their oil incomes. A stronger dollar may offset some of the benefits of low oil prices to reduce savings. A factor that is often overlooked is that in local currency terms, oil was still trading at near record highs until very recently particularly in emerging markets.
Low oil prices will also reduce investments in energy exploration, development and production. Oil producers are already reducing costs and renegotiating contracts with oil service groups. This lower level of spending will have an adverse effect on activity and growth.
In Australia, the low prices of petrol are offset by lower prices in energy exports like LNG and coal, because their prices are linked to oil. Lower investments in the commodity sector and the deferral of existing projects will reduce the benefits gained from low oil prices. The Australian Stock Market has a high concentration of resource companies and banks that lend to these businesses. This means that any problems in the energy sector will affect the income from and value of the financial investments. A large movement in oil prices also has the potential to create significant financial instability particularly in debt markets.
