On the 25th of November, the world lost Fidel Castro, Cuban politician and revolutionary, who governed the Republic of Cuba for 47 years as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976 to 2006. The world mourned for the loss of a person of such stature, as he was one of the last remaining communist leaders.

For a while now, we have been watching people become still all over the internet. The very famous Mannequin Challenge began weeks ago and spread across the country like wildfire. Schools, colleges, offices, restaurants, and even weddings are now taking part in this super-fun activity where every one goes still for a while during a video is being shot. It's an amusing group activity for people of all ages, and the social media is now flooded with videos of the people taking up the challenge!
