Volunteers Pose Naked In Austria

Austria is getting ready to host the Euro 2008 soccer competition, and over the weekend, U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick gathered 1,840 people for a photo in an Austrian soccer stadium. They volunteered to pose naked and weren’t even allowed to wear underwear, sunglasses, or a smile. If you’re never fully dressed without a smile, the opposite must be true, too. [FemaleFirst]

    Pick Up An Austrian

    Out-of-towners visiting Austria for the Euro 2008 soccer competition will receive a free guide, which includes a few essential phrases (i.e., Do you have a sliced sugared pancake with plum compote?). I guess flirting with locals was deemed essential, because the books a phrase for picking up members of the opposite sex: “Servas, fesche Katz.” It translates literally as “Greetings, hot kitten.” I’m so adding that to my repertoire of pickup lines.

    Egypt’s First Female “Maazun”

    Egypt has appointed its first female official to certify marriages and divorces. Amal Soliman applied for the “maazun” position because it would allow her to work close to her home and three children, not because she wanted to start a debate, which she has. “It is wrong to have a woman in this position,” one man said. “My sheikh tells me that if we are to get married that we must avoid her because she can’t do the job.” Part of the issue some people have with her appointment is that women aren’t allowed to enter mosques or read Quaranic verses when they’re menstruating. Amal says she plans to conduct home visits during those times and will also have an assistant who will be able to enter the mosque when she cannot. Ten others, all men, applied for the job, but Justice Minister Mamdouh Marei said Amal was chosen based “on her abilities rather than on her gender.” Keep reading »

    Fewer Mothers Receiving Assistance Than In 1996

    Even though participation in government assistance programs has risen a little in recent years for mothers who have given birth in the last year, participation is still lower than it was when welfare reform was enacted in 1996. According to a report by the U.S. Census Bureau, the mothers who were most likely to receive assistance were younger than 25, living with either no other adult or an unmarried partner, a minority, did not work in the past month, never attended college, or did not receive child support. In 2004, 7.5 million mothers of childbearing age (15 to 44) participated in at least one of six different public assistance programs. [U.S. Census Bureau] Keep reading »

    Are You Even Attracted To Hot Guys?

    Verena Von Pfetten writes on The Huffington Post that she’s not attracted to hot guys. She finds them attractive, but judges the book by its cover. “They’re trained from a young age to be (often) unjustifiably self-assured, to eschew personality and affability for cocksure confidence, and to generally treat people like the feudal system is alive and kickin’,” she says.
