Diaspora
A diaspora is a group of people forced from or chosen to leave their homeland to settle in other lands. People of a diaspora typically preserve and celebrate the culture and traditions of their homeland.

The term diaspora comes from the Greek verb diaspeirô meaning "to scatter" or "to spread about".

Today, scholars recognize two kinds of diaspora: forced and voluntary

Forced diaspora often arises from traumatic events such as wars, imperialistic conquest, or slavery, or from natural disasters like famine or extended drought.

Voluntary diaspora is a community of people who left the homeland in search of economic opportunity.

Deodorant
A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent or mask (hide) body odor due to bacterial breakdown of perspiration in the armpits, groin, and feet, and in some cases vaginal secretions.

A subclass of deodorants, called antiperspirants, prevents sweeting itself, typically by blocking sweet glands.

Other types of deodorant allow sweeting but prevent bacterial action on sweet, since human sweet only has a noticeable smell when it is decomposed by bacterial.

Deodorant products work in one of two ways - by preventing sweet from occuring, or by allowing it to occur but preventing bacterial activity that decomposes sweet on the skin

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/ac/Nachbildung_55PB_Steiff_Museum_Giengen.jpg/173px-Nachbildung_55PB_Steiff_Museum_Giengen.jpg

A teddy bear is a stuffed toy in the form of a bear. Developed apparently simultaneously by toymakers Morris Michtom in the U.S and Richard Steiff in Germany in the early years of the 20th century, and named after President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt, the teddy bear became an iconic children's toy, celebrated in story, song and firm.

Since the creation of the first teddy bears which sought to imitate the form of real bear cubs, teddies" have greatly varied in form, style, colour, and material. They have become collector's items, with older and rarer "teddies" appearing at public auctions. Teddy bears are among the most popular gifts for children and are often given to adults to signify love, congratulations, or sympathy.
