    Dove has removed a Facebook ad that sparked outrage over the weekend for showcasing its body wash alongside a black woman who was shown pulling off her brown T-shirt to reveal a white woman wearing an ivory T-shirt. Screenshots of the ad went viral on social media after makeup artist and model Naomi Leann Blake posted them to her Facebook page on Friday.
  • These male jumping spiders evolved dance moves because the ladies ignore them

    This is the cutest that spider mating has ever been.You don’t often feel bad for spiders. But when a fuzzy, black-eyed jumping spider raises his green forearms into the air, wiggles his butt, and flashes his orange knees, only to have a lady spider literally turn around in the middle of his dance...what kind of monster doesn’t feel a pang of empathy? It doesn’t even matter that arachnids are unlikely to experience rejection and angst the way humans do—you feel for the little guy. It’s somehow worse once you know that male jumping spiders evolved this ability specifically to woo...

    Once in a while, a story comes along that is so ironic it needs this label in bold: “Not satire.” Liberals continue to look more like a parody every day. The progressive farce was just taken to a new level by black students at Cornell University, who are making sweeping demands after they realized that actual Africans from Africa are taking many student positions at the college. Yes, the race-obsessed busybodies at Cornell are in a panic because there is now too much diversity.

    <p>HOUSTON, TX—Although Joel Osteen took flak over the weekend for closing up his church to flood victims and all but disappearing during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, the megachurch pastor reportedly returned to the city on his luxury yacht “S.S. Blessed” to make amends Tuesday by tossing copies of Your Best Life Now to stranded flood survivors.</p>

    The Greatest Twitter Account EverPosted: 15th February 2013 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized 1 I was reluctant to get on Twitter… I’m really busy, and I just don’t have time to pay attention to the moronic missives of talentless rappers or some vapid celebutard’s most recent yeast infection. Seriously… if you aren’t banging Kim Kardashian, why would you give a rat’s ass about anything she has to say? But on the other hand, I find that I do like reading the tweets of other hacks… misery loves company, I suppose. But most of all, I enjoy Twitter accounts that...

    FULL TITLE: Just popping out for some milk: Shoppers snap the eccentric characters who roam the aisles of their local supermarkets Ah the supermarket aisle: a mundane catwalk of everyday life. But every so often, we come across characters so out of the ordinary that reality is briefly suspended. These images, rounded up from across the world, showcase the shoppers so out-there, they simply had to be captured on camera. In America, the sheer volume of these snaps is so great that a website exists to document them, the wildly popular People of Walmart. Here, MailOnline presents a selection of...

    Dateline Hollywood ^ | June 28,2017 | Jeremy Gerard
    Using words including “betrayal,” “humiliating” and “covfefe” and suggesting that management had compared them to “dogs urinating on fire hydrants,” copy editors at the New York Times today let executive editor Dean Baquet and his heir apparent, Joseph Kahn, know exactly how they feel about taking the brunt of layoffs and buyouts as the Times expands its reporting ranks. The latest flare-up comes at a moment when the Times also is dealing with a libel lawsuit filed by former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin over a Times Op-Ed column erroneously linking her to violent attacks on public figures. In a...

    The Fiscal Times ^ | June 12, 2017 | Eric Pianin
    Illinois has long been the poster child for a dysfunctional state fiscal policy. The state’s Republican governor, a formerly wealthy businessman, and the Democratic-controlled legislature have been perpetually locked in a race to the bottom as the Land of Lincoln has repeatedly flirted with near- bankruptcy and junk-bond level credit ratings.

You may opt for Medicare Part G. The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You may then shoot one worthless politician.

    We spoke to the author of 'The Ambivalent Internet' about the rise of the right online. Professor Whitney Phillips, author of This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things, a book about trolling, has teamed up with Professor Ryan M Milner to pen another book about internet culture. The Ambivalent Internet is about how we express ourselves online, the ways in which we do it, why we do it and how it ends up the way it does. The book was written on the eve of Donald Trump's ascension to the world's highest office, and deals, in part, with the...

    GETTING OLDER A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?" "'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS'.." *********************** An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked...

    A pair of kittens 'trained' a human to bring them treats every time they ring a bell. In a twist on the famous Pavlov's Dog experiment, where a canine was conditioned to associate food with the sound of a bell, some Twitter users have suggested in jest that the cats were in fact training the human. The adorable footage shows the two cats pawing at a bell and then given a treat.

    It could be a robotic guardian angel for anyone on a first date who fears they may be boring. Scientists have created a gadget that is worn like a wristwatch and uses artificial intelligence to assess a conversation’s tone. It can differentiate between happy, sad and neutral, but some versions could also tell whether your delivery is boring or awkward. It could be installed in smartphones or watches that would vibrate if the conversation went downhill during a date or interview, researchers said. Please click on link for full article)
