This Dreamlike Flock Of Rainbow Sheep Actually Exists

Every once and a while, an image captured from reality is even more beautiful and bizarre than a lucid dream. (Or, we’ll add, an admirably photoshopped image.) Such is the case with the candy-colored flock of sheep pictured below. Though they may resemble the multicolored flock born of the imagination as it tries to count itself to sleep, these precious creatures actually exist in the world, thanks to a photographer named Gray Malin.

“When I was young in my career I read a story online about a Scottish sheep farmer who had colored the fleece …read more

Heavy Metal Ballet Troupe Takes On 'Game Of Thrones'

You might not think to pair heavy metal music with classical ballet, but the two seemingly go together like a good cut of meat and a fine merlot.

Just take a look at this production by the Brutal Ballet company, which recently performed at TitanCon, a science fiction and fantasy convention in Belfast, Ireland, on Sept. 13. Set to a heavy metal cover of the “Game of Thrones” theme song, the ballet troupe’s choreography provides a graceful contrast to the dark music.

According to the BBC, the HBO show’s Eugene Simon (Ser Lancel …read more

Daily Meditation: The Art Of Living

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these daily meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today’s meditation features a quote attributed to English educator and Unitarian minister L.P. Jacks. Ask yourself today whether you spend more time working or playing, and whether there needs to be a distinction at all.

The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and …read more

Stopping Ebola in its Tracks

My father was born in Sierra Leone and my parents married there, so I’ve always felt a connection to that country, but never as strongly as in recent weeks as the Ebola virus has stormed through Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea, ravaging communities and taking innocent lives.

A few weeks ago, as Ebola slipped down the world’s list of priorities, I woke up in the middle of the night knowing I had to do something, in whatever way I could, to help fight the spread of this virus. Unchecked, Ebola threatens to not only take more lives, but to …read more

New York Times Announces Deep New Round Of Staff Cuts As Digital Initiatives Stall

In a sign of the persistent challenges facing the newspaper industry, the New York Times is planning to make deep cuts in its newsroom staff, executives announced Wednesday. More troublingly for the paper, its attempts to gain new sources of revenue through digital products appear to be stalling badly.

The Times said it would seek to eliminate roughly 100 jobs in the newsroom, through either buyouts or layoffs. Additional reductions are expected in the editorial and business departments.

The cuts have been widely expected for weeks.

The paper’s own report on the changes …read more

7-Eleven Now Sells Kale Juice. This Is Not An Onion Article

7-Eleven — late-night purveyor of cheeseburger flavored hot dogs, fried nacho cheese nuggets, and taquitos filled with cream cheese — said Tuesday that it’s going gourmet.

Hoping to woo customers who are as health-conscious as they are time-crunched, the company is adding cold-pressed kale juice and spicy quinoa salad to the menu at some Southern California locations, the convenience store chain said in a press release.

To make it vividly clear that the food is safer for dieters than, say, its current bacon-sprinkled salad option, 7-Eleven’s new …read more

This Is How Real Brooklynites Made Bagels By Hand In The '70s

Sure, bagels and New Yorkers have an unbreakable bond, but few know what goes on behind the scenes to produce one of the quintessential foods of the Big Apple.

A video from 1979 that’s making the rounds online showcases the coveted art of kneading, cutting, boiling and baking dough into perfect O’s. The grainy footage has been restored by Brooklyn Public Library, according to Wimp, and provides a unique glimpse into what making handmade bagels looked like 30 years ago.

In a no-nonsense Brooklyn accent, one of the bagel makers touches …read more

8 Styles Of Social Networking

I’ve always been style conscious. It’s the way my mama raised me. I combed fashion magazines and browsed through boutiques from an early age, not just searching for bargains, but for ideas on how to put outfits together. For me, fashion is an artistic expression of who I am, in that moment, for that occasion.

I’ve had periods in my life where my style fit a certain category – classic, edgy, romantic, conservative or trendy – until the day I realized I didn’t fit just one label and that my style was a unique and authentic …read more

The Hypnotic (And Very Glittery) Beauty Of Haitian Vodou Flags

Gaze upon the glistening surface of a Haitian Vodou flag and you may start to feel a bit dizzy. That’s exactly the point. The wildly hypnotic textiles were designed to facilitate religious experiences. “They shimmer, glisten and become the meditative focal point of the Vodou ritual before the possession takes place,” Everhart Museum curator Nezka Pfeifer explained to The Huffington Post. “They are made with religious power.”

An exhibition titled “Sacred Symbols in Sequins: Vintage Haitian Vodou Flags” recently opened at the Scranton, Pennsylvania museum, bringing together a collection of wildly colorful Haitian flags, most …read more
