Duckfaces For Science: NASA Is Organizing A #GlobalSelfie For Earth Day

NASA #GlobalSelfie

NASA has come up with a thoroughly modern way to celebrate Earth Day this year, and it’s waaaaayyy easier than planting a tree or taking the bus. The most cutting edge scientific agency in the world wants you to take a selfie. Yes, seriously. The project is called #GlobalSelfie, and here’s the lowdown from NASA’s website:

NASA astronauts brought home the first ever images of the whole planet from space. Now NASA satellites capture new images of Earth every second. For Earth Day we are trying to create an image of Earth from the ground up while also fostering a collection of portraits of the people of Earth. Once those pictures stream around the world on Earth Day, the individual pictures tagged #GlobalSelfie will be used to create a mosaic image of Earth — a new “Blue Marble” built bit by bit with your photos.

Life Dream Status: Desperate For A Doughnut Right Away? There’s An App For That!

PURE JOY

Doughbot is the stuff the American Dream is made of: for only 99 cents, you can have at your fingertips access to the exact location of any and all doughnut sellers near you. I don’t love paying for apps, but sometimes you just need a fix, you know? The app works by scanning Instagram, Yelp and Yahoo and determining which artisanal doughnut is within the shortest distance of your current location. Yes, the word “artisanal” makes me sigh heavily in most contexts too (I live in Brooklyn, so it happens a lot), but we must acknowledge that artisanal doughnuts are more delicious than your run-of-the-mill franchise pastry. Doughbot understands the importance of quality artery-crushing treats without bringing a snooty attitude to the party. Their promo video is way too cheerful for food snobs. Can I swim in doughnuts like their little cartoon robot does? Someone sign me up! [Gothamist]

Increase Your Confidence With These Style And Body Language Tips

Find Your Confidence!

In a recent study conducted by Marshalls, 75 percent of the 1000 women surveyed admitted to having said “No” to various activities and invitations due to a lack of confidence. Are you shocked? I’m not. I’ve been there. Raise your hand if you’re among the 55 percent of women who’ve declined party invitations or the 40 percent who have passed up on career opportunities because you didn’t feel confident. It has to stop! Think of all the missed romantic, social, and professional opportunities. Keep reading »

Kirsten Dunst Implies That Actresses Ask To Be Sexually Harassed

Sofia Coppola: I feel like you and I are so on the same page about how to approach things. Have you ever worked with a director you didn’t agree with? And if so, what did you do?

Kirsten Dunst: I have, and it takes all the fun out of what you do. You just get through it instead of having a meaningful experience.

SC: What if a director pounces on you while working? Has that ever happened?

KD: No [laughs]. I don’t give off that vibe. I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.

Kirsten Dunst is a real dingaling, isn’t she? First, in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar last month, she professed her love for traditional gender roles, telling the mag, “You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman.” And now, in an interview with her “Marie Antoinette” director, Sofia Coppola, for W, Kirsten rather smugly says that she hasn’t ever been sexually harassed by a director because she doesn’t give of “that vibe” or “court that stuff.” In other words, if you’re an actress that has been sexually harassed by someone with power in the industry, you must have asked for it. It’s almost like she’s conflating sexual harassment with a consensual affair, as if the two things are the same and/or cross the same boundary. But they aren’t the same. At all. Seriously, Kirsten, hush. [Defamer]
