A Brazilian man accidentally left his camera on while taking a sneaky shower during a Zoom call. If that wasn't bad enough, the call included Brazil's president, Jair Bolsonaro. The call was held by Paulo Skaf, the president of the Federation of Industries of the State of Sao Paulo, and included a bunch of people who were discussing the rather serious matter of the impact of lockdown on businesses in the country. However, while Skaf was speaking he was interrupted by the President who reportedly asked: "Paulo, there's a colleague there in the last little square, he left, is he okay?" The Minister of Industry, Paulo Guedes, who was in the little box next to the President then said: "There is a guy having a shower there, naked. There's a naked guy there, isolating naked at home, great. The guy was getting hot with the conversation, so he went to take a cold shower." Bolsonaro added: "It was a shaky picture but we saw, unfortunately."

A pizza their heart
Modern pizza toppings are commonly thought to have originated in Italy, but in fact they were developed by Italian immigrants in the United States and then exported back to Italy. Syracuse University anthropologist Agehananda Bharati calls this the "pizza effect" — the elements of a nation's culture are sometimes developed elsewhere and then reimported. Other examples include: Mexico City's Day of the Dead parade, which was invented for the James Bond film Spectre, then adopted by the city, yoga, which became popular in India after its adoption in the West and Teppanyaki, the Japanese style of cooking on an iron griddle, which grew to prominence in America in "Japanese steakhouses". The pizza example continues to "echo" between Italian and American cultures: American tourists sought out "authentic" (non-American) pizza in Italy, and Italians met the demand by creating brick-oven pizzerias. The Americans then carried these back to their own country. Stephen Jenkins of Humboldt State University writes, "Hence, Americans met their own reflection in the other and were delighted".
