Social Wave

The Sol Wave House Hotel in Majorca, Spain, claims to be the first-ever Twitter-themed hotel. First of all, that statement implies that there will be more Twitter-themed hotels to come, which I find confusing, but secondly, I guess some people feel more passionately about Twitter than I do. The hotel is, naturally, focused around social interaction, meeting new people, and hashtags.

Here are five important facts you can use to decide whether or not this real-life Twitter is for you. Keep reading »

When someone goes on a bad date it usually has something to do with awkward silences, gross food, a complete lack of connection, or as the case usually is with me, embarrassing occurrences. Some dates are even bad enough to make the news, but generally, first dates don’t end in a fall from a 17th-story balcony. Tragically, that’s how one otherwise promising first date came to a close Thursday night, reports The New York Times.

Jennifer Rosoff had returned to her Manhattan apartment with her date, Stephen Close, and the two decided to go out on the balcony to have a cigarette. According to the New York Post, Ms. Rosoff lifted herself up onto the railing of the balcony to chat with her date. Close thought that the balcony looked unstable and suggested that she get down, but Rosoff assured him that this was something she had done many times before. Moments later, however, Close heard two loud pops from the balcony and Rosoff was gone. Keep reading »

A small village in Florida was created in the 1960s in the middle of sugar cane fields to house the people who worked there. Some of these sugar cane workers still live there, but these days half of the residents of this “Miracle Village” are registered sex offenders. Since 2009, Miracle Village has been home to about 100 sex offenders who have nowhere else to go. Florida, like many states, has a law that forbids sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of anywhere children congregate, such as schools, parks, bus stops, and day care centers.

For many, this makes it nearly impossible to find somewhere to live. Miracle Village’s closest neighbor, however, is about three miles away through fields of sugar cane. Keep reading »

Lululemon Athletica

Although Abercrombie & Fitch has been hit hard with criticism for not carrying larger sizes in stores, they’re far from the only company ignoring the plus-size customer base. We already knew anything over size 10 is considered “plus size” at Forever 21. Now, according to Huffington Post, Lululemon Athletica, a Canadian clothing company that focuses on yoga and running attire, also is biased against customers who require larger sizes.

As company that sells athletic gear, Lululemon wants to portray an image of health and wellness. How healthy a person is, however, is not to be confused with how skinny a person is. This is where Lululemon goes wrong.

Would You Go See A Flower That Smells Like Rotting Flesh?

Hundreds of people flocked to the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington, D.C. recently for a very weird reason. Don’t get me wrong, plants are great, but botanical gardens generally aren’t known to draw a huge crowd. But it was very exciting occasion for the plant community: the Titan arum, or the “corpse flower,” was in full bloom. Keep reading »

The ongoing trial of Li Tianyi, a 17-year-old boy accused of participating in the gang rape of a woman in Beijing, spurred some vomit-inducing comments from Yi Yanyou, a professor at Tsinghua University. As the blog Shanghaiist reported, in defending the accused rapist, Yanyou posted to his Weibo account that since “a bargirl, a dancing girl, an escort or a prostitute” is more likely to consent to sex, it isn’t as bad to rape them.

The goal of the contest is to drink as many liters of beer as possible in 20 minutes and Garcia drank six liters, breaking the contest record. The poor guy was coherent for long enough to hold up his trophy in glory, but his condition deteriorated quickly, reported the UK’s Daily Mail.

TrueCar
Whatever, TrueCar

The idea behind TrueCar.com is to provide people with a benchmark for how much they should be paying for a car so that when they go to a dealership, they can be somewhat knowledgeable when they bargain. I actually think it’s a great idea and I would totally use it if I hadn’t seen their commercial first. The commercial shows only women talking about how they just get so nervous at car dealerships all by themselves without a man by their sides. One woman even exclaims that she can go to the dealership without a “dude” now that she has TrueCar! Would it have been so hard to throw in one man talking about how helpful TrueCar is? Couldn’t the woman have been happy she could go confidently to the dealership without “someone who knows a lot about cars” instead of a “dude”? Keep reading »

Doctor Serving Beer

Okay, now I’m really not sure if alcohol is good for me or bad for me. According to Daily Mail, The North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke, England, has applied for an alcohol license serve wine and beer to patients in a private wing. A nurse will literally bring you a beer as you lay sickly in your hospital bed.

Both wine and beer would be made available from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Both patients and visitors would be able to consume alcohol, and NHS has made it clear that drinking more than is healthy will not be encouraged.

Naturally, there are plenty who are critical of a hospital serving alcohol. It sends a lot of mixed messages to people about the health consequences of alcohol consumption if a hospital serves it to its patients. The hospital has assured such critics that alcohol will only be served to patients if it is medically safe and appropriate, but serving alcohol certainly makes NHS seem more like a business trying to make a profit than a hospital trying to improve the health of its patients.[Daily Mail]
