This carpet cleaner quit his job and now makes six figures traveling around the world


Wouldn’t you just love to quit your job, go traveling around the world, make a huge salary in the process… Oh, and meet the love of your life?! Well, for British man named Jack Morris, that is exactly what has happened. The former carpet cleaner has completely turned his life around, and it all started with a one-way ticket to Bangkok, Thailand.

Quitting his job

According to The Daily Mail, Jack Morris is a 26-year-old Brit, who used to work as a carpet cleaner. On impulse one day, he decided to buy himself a one-way ticket to Bangkok in Thailand – and quit his job in the process. He had no idea what the future was going to hold for him, he just knew that he wanted to have a whole load of fun seeing the world. Little did he know how much lay in store for him, however.

@doyoutravel

Meeting the love of his life

As if getting to see all that this wonderful world has to offer us wasn’t enough, Jack Morris stumbled across a 23-year-old called Lauren Bullen on a beach in Fiji. As you do! Lauren is originally from New South Wales in Australia, and it was pretty much love at first sight for the pair. They quickly became full-time traveling companions, along with being boyfriend and girlfriend. However, this was just the tip of the iceberg for Jack Morris. Things were about to get so much better.

Bringing in the big bucks

As if traveling the world and meeting the love of your life isn’t impressive enough for the 26-year-old former carpet cleaner, he now brings in a six-figure salary with his girlfriend Lauren. The pair get paid to see some of the greatest sights in the world, but they also have a little side hustle (as if being social media superstars wasn’t enough). They have their own business selling Lightroom presets to those who want to make their Instagram photos pop as much as their own. With a combined follower count of nearly 5 million over their two accounts, it seems as though the world will be their oyster (quite literally) for some time to come.

@doyoutravel

Two years before

This luck may all be thanks to one decision Jack Morris made two years before. He said that he was strapped for cash and so decided to take the plunge and invest in a good quality camera to see whether he could snap some photos he could sell. Morris was hoping his investment would pay off, but he probably never dreamed it would amount to running a six-figure business with his new girlfriend by his side. It just goes to show that following a dream really is the key to success.

It’s unlikely Jack Morris is missing his life back in Britain, as a carpet cleaner, as he is now literally living the dream. So, where’s next for the pair? Turns out they’re heading to beautiful Bali. Not that we’re jealous or anything!

Spice Girls send fans wild with first look at incredible 90s-style Spice World reunion tour stage

THE Spice Girls have revealed the incredible retro stage that will greet excited fans attending their reunion Spice World tour.

Baby Spice Emma, 43, yesterday posted a snap of the extravagant stage layout – that harks back to the Spice Girls’ 90s heyday.

The photo, which Emma posted on twitter, shows a huge globe in the centre of the stage with a banner reading “Spice World” across the middle.

It also reveals the dazzling array of lights and lasers that will be used to give fans an eyeful during the much-anticipated reunion gigs.

Wings on either side of the stage have huge screens above them that will show the girls performing in all their glory.

It comes as the Spice Girls – minus Posh Spice Victoria Beckham – prepare for their gig at Dublin’s Croke Park on Friday.

Twitter

The Spice Girls are touring together for the first time in a decade[/caption]

Releasing the behind-the-scenes snap yesterday, Emma wrote: “Spice World production rehearsals done! Roll on Friday.”

Fans reacted with glee – with one writing: “Omg the stage is AMAZING!!!!! I think it’s the best stage yet, out of all of the Spice Girls tours!”

Another said: “I died a little”, while one US fan wrote: “I REALLY hope it comes to America.”

Emma is reuniting on stage with her bandmates Mel C, Mel B and Geri Horner – although Victoria Beckham won’t be taking part.

The tour is named Spice World – a nod to the girls’ 1997 comedy music movie.

Our relationship is really good. We’ve all been really positive, so it’s nice


Geri Horner

The highly anticipated return of the biggest girl group ever is tipped as the entertainment event of the year.

But it comes amid rumours of friction between the girls – especially since Mel B claimed during a recording of Piers Morgan’s Life Stories that she had an historic lesbian fling with Geri.

Earlier, Geri, 46, hit back after rumours of fighting between the group.


Asked what she thought of all the band’s critics, she told The Sun: “You think, ‘Oh f*** off!’.”

She also disputed there is a split in the band, saying: “Our relationship is really good.

“We’ve all been really positive, so it’s nice. It’s natural. I’m really happy, everyone’s happy.”

Best water parks in the world


Water parks are great for making adults feel like they’re kids again, and for making kids have a ton of fun. The whole family can splash around in the pool or set their pulses racing by enjoying the water slides. There are plenty of water parks all over the world, and we reckon we’ve discovered the best of the best. Check out these amazing water parks found across the globe.

Typhoon Lagoon – Florida, USA

Disney isn’t content with taking over the movie business and is pretty high up on the list of amazing water parks too. Typhoon Lagoon is considered the best water park in the United States and given the competition that’s pretty impressive. There are water attractions aplenty as everywhere you turn offers you thrills and spills.

Not only can you get your heart racing with the slides but there are wildlife attractions to bring you face to face with some amazing marine life. Shark Reef is where you’ll want to head to meet those animals, but that’s not all, there’s also a giant raft ride on Gangplank Falls. Then as if that wasn’t enough you can even take surf lessons in their wave pool.

Typhoon Lagoon

WetSide Water Park – Hervey Bay, Australia

Water parks bring in thousands of people every year, and for a relatively small fee, you can go inside and have the time of your life. One thing that sets the WetSide Water Park apart from the others is the fact that this Australian attraction is completely free for anyone wanting to visit.

It won’t cost a cent to enjoy most of the park which is based around educating people about water and the wildlife that lives in it. There is a small cost for those who want to ride the wave machine on a board, but for $ 6 you can’t really have an issue.

Waterbom Bali – Kuta, Indonesia

Indonesia has become a hotspot for backpackers in recent years, but there is plenty here for families too. Waterbom Bali has some of the most original rides found anywhere in the world, and the park really pushes the boundaries. You can enjoy the Water Blaster, where you take aim and fire water balloons at riders, or get competitive against a friend on the Twin Racers ride. There’s, of course, a lazy river to take in, plus Asia’s steepest slide.

Waterbom Bali

Siam Park – Tenerife, Spain

There can be no real dispute that Siam Park in Tenerife, Spain, is the greatest water park in the world. According to TripAdvisor, it has been the top water park in the world for five years in a row. There are plenty of adrenaline pumping slides and rides for people to get their pulses racing, but there’s so much more.

To contrast the thrilling attractions there are family-friendly areas and even some spots for peace and quiet. There are over 30 rides for guests to enjoy, meaning you’ll probably end up not doing any twice in one day there’s so much choice. Siam Park also has its own wave pool, and even holds a world record for the largest ever man-made wave.

These are some of the best places in the world to get wet and wild at a water park. If you can’t have fun or enjoy yourself at these amazing locations then perhaps water parks really aren’t your thing.

How to see the Seven Wonders of the World an a budget


The Seven Wonders of the World are there for all of us to admire but sometimes getting there is a little out of our price range. They are some of the most visited places on Earth, but we are left wondering how because they are so expensive to travel to. Luckily we have some tricks that will make sure you can check off the Seven Wonders from your bucket list at a fraction of the cost.

How to see the Seven Wonders of the World an a budget

Get your timing right

The first thing to consider when looking to book a trip to visit any of the Seven Wonders is to look at the time of year. If you’re heading there in peak time, then you’re going to be spending way more money than if you go at a different time of the year.

Most of the Seven Wonders are cheaper to visit from April to June, except for the Taj Mahal, which is cheaper to visit in November. Heading to these wonders during the off-season means your bank balance will be healthier and you’ll also be able to enjoy them with fewer people around.

Book ahead

No matter what time of the year you decide to go, you’re going to have to buy tickets to the Wonders. Why not save yourself both some time and some money by booking them in advance. Most places will offer you some discount for advanced bookings so why not take advantage of that when visiting the Seven Wonders?

Keeping your eye out for any promotions the attractions are offering is another way in which you can save yourself some much-needed cash.

Spread them out

Some people try to take in the Seven Wonders in one trip, but that usually means they don’t get to spend much time looking at them. Plus, if you’re booking yourself a round-the-world trip, then you know that cost is going to add up.

Traveling isn’t all that cheap so maybe take your time and visit one at a time. That way you can take them in at a slower pace, plus you don’t have to frantically travel to the next destination, which adds more stress and cost.

How to see the Seven Wonders of the World an a budget

Shop around

One of the most important things you can possibly do to save yourself some money is to shop around, especially when it comes to accommodation. These attractions are all surrounded by hotels just waiting to charge you an arm and a leg for the pleasure of staying with them. Not much further afield will be cheaper places to stay, or you could go even cheaper and look at hostels or B&Bs.

If you’re traveling on a budget, you’ll want to save money where you can and your accommodation, along with your travel, are likely to be the most expensive. Making real savings on these will make the Seven Wonders of the World accessible for those traveling on a budget.

Many of us want to see all of the world, but sadly we just don’t have the cash. Following these tips will help make sure you keep costs low but still get to witness some of humanity’s greatest achievements.

World Health Organization issues new tips for fighting dementia

fighting dementia

As our bodies age, we have to accept new limitations. We lose muscle, joints can become painful or need replacement, and our brains can experience similar declines. Dementia, a cognitive decline often associated with age, has been linked to certain genetic quirks, but a family history of dementia doesn’t mean there’s nothing a person can do to fight it off.

New guidance from the World Health Organization focuses on lifestyle changes that researchers believe can help delay the onset of dementia symptoms even in people who may be genetically prone. It also addresses some popular myths related to supplements that people may be using in an effort to combat the condition.

While the World Welcomes Meghan’s Royal Baby: Here Are 6 More Royal Black Women Around the World

It’s a boy! Meghan Markle has delivered a baby boy, according to several news reports. Markle, whose official title is Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex since her marriage to Prince Harry, has been a daily topic in media and among royal family watchers.

According to CNN “the baby will be seventh in line to the British throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William, and his three children and Prince Harry.”

Markle is the product of a white father and black mother—a social worker who lives in the mostly African American L.A. suburb of View Park-Windsor Hills (incidentally, one of the wealthiest black suburbs in the country).

It’s been a constant source of buzz—the first woman of color to become part of the British royal family. Yet, there are other black women royalnistas around the globe:

 

Princess Angela of Liechtenstein

Princess Angela (born Angela Gisela Brown) was a standout graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York and worked as a fashion director for Adrienne Vittadini, before marrying Prince Maximilian of Liechtenstein in January 2000. This Afro-Panamanian beauty also started her own line, A. Brown, which she headed for three years. The couple wed at the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer in New York, after reportedly meeting a few years earlier at a reception in the city. The princess wore a white dress which she designed and the same Kinsky royal-jeweled tiara that Princess Tatjana of Liechtenstein wore when she married Philipp von Lattorff in June 1999.

 

 

Baroness Cecile de Massy of Monaco

de Massy is married to Christian Louis Baron de Massy who is Prince Rainier of Monaco’s nephew. The fashionable beauty of Caribbean descent is a prominent fixture among the who’s who of Monaco’s social scene and is also involved in philanthropy, serving as president of Ladies Lunch Monte-Carlo, a charitable organization in Monaco.

 

Princess Sikhanyiso of Swaziland

The first of 30 children of King Mswati III of Swaziland, this princess is more than a pretty face, speaking out to raise awareness on issues such as AIDS and poverty that affect her country. With interests in the arts, this 30-year-old studied drama at the University of Biola in California and was featured in publications as one of the top hottest young royals.

 

 

Princess Keisha Omilana of Nigeria

A former model, spokesperson, and actress, Omilana adds brains to beauty as a businesswoman. The Inglewood, California, native started Wonderful Brand, a multifaceted business incorporating fashion, television, and web, with her husband, Kunle, a Nigerian prince. Known as the “Pantene Girl,” Omilana is cited as the first African American woman to be featured in three consecutive commercials.

 

Countess Mary Von Habsburg of Austria

Habsburg, a native of Sudan, is the wife of Ferdinand Leopold Joseph Count von Habsburg of Austria. The couple wed in August 1999, hosting their ceremony in Nairobi, Kenya, and have three children, all born in Nairobi. Their marriage was seen as controversial among the public and in royal circles, because of her class as a commoner and her ethnic background; but the head of the Habsburg royal family, Dr. Otto von Habsburg, reportedly declared all Habsburg marriages “equal.”

 

Queen Sylvia Nagginda of Buganda (Uganda)

Born in the United Kingdom and raised in Uganda, this regal woman married King Kabaka Mutebi II in 1999, after a career working in various U.S. sectors including public relations, international nonprofits, and healthcare and human services. A graduate of New York University and New York Institute of Technology, the queen also advocates for public service, having worked as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund, and has worked as a consultant to bring resources to Uganda’s entrepreneurs and the business community.

The most dog-friendly cities in the world


Traveling solo is fantastic, but traveling with someone you love is even better, and if that someone you love happens to have four legs and a tail, then check out these dog-friendly cities.

New York City, New York

NYC is all about their K9 friends! Home to the enormous Central Park, your pup will love exploring the miles of green space. In fact, New York is so pro-dog that you can get a $ 500 tax credit at the end of the year if you choose to adopt a dog from the shelter, rather than buy from a breeder. You go, New York!

Dogs of New York

Rome, Italy

Sure, Rome is known for its romance, but the love between a dog and his owner is something even more special. You’ll notice a whole load of dogs roaming around Rome, not only because the fountains are like huge water bowls, but also because it is not a legal requirement to use a leash, so they can run free. There are plenty of parks for zoomies, and as long as your dog is a good boy, he will be allowed in a large percentage of coffee shops.

Seattle, Washington

A fun fact about Seattle and dogs is that there are actually more fur-babies than human babies. So, if you are someone who thinks dogs are a million times cuter than babies (guilty!), this is a city you are going to love. There are a whole host of dog-friendly hotels of all budgets, 14 off-leash parks, and even places such as Greenwood’s Voff Bark & Brew and Ruff Lounge which are social clubs for dogs and their humans – have a beer while your dog makes friends.

Tel Aviv, Israel

Tel Aviv is a fantastic tech hub full of super cool shopping, art, and food – the only way it could be even more perfect, is if you take your dog along with you! Luckily dogs are welcome in most places (as they should be!) from malls to cafes and on public transport, which is perfect for getting you both to one of the over 70 dog parks that are in the city!

Tel Aviv dog

Geneva, Switzerland

If you are a dog lover, you will understand how heartbreaking it can be to know that some owners are not kind to their pets and not all dogs are looked after the way they deserve to be. Geneva has the perfect way to handle that, as they require all dog owners to pass a written and practical test to obtain a dog license.

Santa Barbara, California

We all know that dogs love to hit the beach as much as we do – so much water to splash in, people to meet, other dogs to sniff and an abundance of room to run around. However, Santa Barbara takes it one step further with a dedicated dog beach where dogs can be kept off their leash to enjoy themselves as much as you do.

So don’t feel as though you have to leave your furry friend at home – take him on your next adventure with you. We’re sure he’ll love it.

Best places in the world for seeing amazing wildlife


The world is a magical place filled with amazing sights and creatures. Some of us are lucky enough to have nature on our doorstep but others are not, and the only jungle they see is of the concrete variety. There are places all over the world that are amazing to visit wildlife and here are some of the best of them.

Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

There is a hugely diverse array of animals on this tropical island and few humans ever come into contact with them. In fact, it is largely only visited by biologists who study these animals, everyone else more or less has to stay away.

There are some amazing animals to be found there including exotic birds, mammals, and reptiles. It is possible to visit the islands, but people who are not natives are unable to buy a one-way ticket to these amazing islands.

Best places in the world for seeing amazing wildlife

Borneo

Every year there are more and more species of animals being added to the list of inhabitants and the last count was well over 400. The island is the third largest in the world and is home to the Sumatran rhinoceros, Asian elephant, and a dwindling number of orangutan. Bird lovers can come here to take in the hundreds of different varieties, but there’s more.

There is a mountain to climb to get a bird’s eye view of the island, and if you take to the waters, you can enjoy watching the marine life flourish below the surface. You can even watch the sea turtles laying their eggs on the beaches if you time it right.

The Pantanal, Brazil

The Amazon rainforest gets plenty of plaudits for being one of the best places to see wildlife in the world, but there is somewhere in Brazil that’s arguably better. The Pantanal gives wildlife lovers the chance to see some of the regions most celebrated animals up close.

Tours come in the form of river cruises, which means you can wade through this wetland by boat, taking in the wonderful jaguars, giant otters, tapirs, and anteaters in safety. There’s no need to fight through a dangerous jungle, and you get to see an abundance of wildlife, it’s a win-win.

Best places in the world for seeing amazing wildlife

Kanha Tiger Reserve, India

Tigers are the biggest of all cats and also arguably the most striking thanks to their distinctive pattern. Being able to see a tiger in the wild is an experience that few people in the world have had. They are so elusive, but there’s more to this tiger reserve than stripey cats.

It is the home of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book, and you’ll find all of your favorite animals from the tale here. There are sloth bears, leopards, Indian wolves, Bengal tigers, and even jackals. While it’s never guaranteed when it comes to wildlife, your best chances of seeing tigers is between March and May because the forest dries out and tigers stay near water.

There are many places all over the world to see wildlife, even in your backyard. To see some of the world’s most exotic animals check out these places and we reckon you won’t regret it.

How Mother of the Miniskirt Mary Quant Changed the World

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Getty

LONDON—She threw out everything that was chaste in a woman’s wardrobe. She raised hemlines above the knee and so created the miniskirt. More than any other fashion designer before or since, she caught the zeitgeist of her time, and of her country as it threw out the constraints of the past.

Finally, Mary Quant is getting the accolade her life merits, in a scintillating show at the Victoria and Albert Museum, a temple of good taste as perceived, collected and exhibited in works dating from ancient Greece to the present.

Quant came softly into American awareness with a story in Life magazine in December, 1960, headlined “A British Couple’s Kooky Styles”. The headline itself is loaded with the contradiction, to American eyes of the time, that anything “kooky” might emanate from a realm so uptight as Britain.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch up your weekend, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.

 

PLANT: Bring some green into your living space.

Succulent Container

Depending on where you are, Spring might be exploding around you. I’m definitely a fan. I don’t have a lot of house plants because of cats and thumbs. But I love having a little bit of life in my living space. That’s where succulents come in. The best thing about succulents is that you have to work hard at killing them. They do best when ignored, mostly. There are so many varieties of plants to choose from, and just as many textures and structures. It doesn’t take much to put together a centerpiece or a medium size pot and the plants are easy to work with. First things first. Yes – there is a slide show element to this link. This is actually not a bad thing. Because below that, you can see the information you need if you are interested in finding out which plants are which. Maybe you decide to put something together for a gift. But don’t be surprised if you decide to keep it. And even if you’re not one for words like “zen,” you benefit from their presence just the same.

 

EAT: Mix up your taco routine with mushrooms.

https://www.blessthismessplease.com/the-best-mushroom-tacos/

Mushroom tacos! On a recent visit to Los Angeles I enjoyed this dish at a rooftop restaurant with a view of the Hollywood sign. I am still thinking about those tacos. When I got home I had to find a similar recipe and give it a chance just to ensure my original impressions were based more on the mushrooms and not the Hollywood hills and the Capitol Records tower in the distance. It was the shrooms. Hearty portobello mushrooms are a good meat substitute especially since they hoover up any seasonings you use. Grilled vegetables are a summer staple at my house and this dish will find its way into regular rotation for sure.

 

BINGE: It’s a beautiful world we live in…

Netflix’ Our Planet is a really good addition to the nature documentary genre. David Attenborough‘s* narration brings gravitas to the series. The writing is excellent. It is a program where you will learn much about nature and the fauna within. Where you will find yourself beaming at the incredible footage and inspiring sights and then crying ten minutes later. Where you will hear a phrase “the boobies carpet bomb the shoals” and not snicker. Hopefully (goals?). But seriously, it is a show where you will learn so much and be entertained the whole time. *David is the younger brother to the super rich but lousy with the grandkids dude from Jurassic Park.

 

DRINK: An update of an old favorite.

http://eat-drink-garden.com/2011/08/tequila-gimlet/

The tequila gimlet is a terrific take on a classic cocktail. I stumbled upon these out of necessity one evening when I realized, halfway into making drinks, I didn’t have some of my usual margarita fixings (I’m a sucker for Grand Marnier in my version). I had some simple syrup and I had lots of limes so I set about fixing what is essentially the tequila version of the popular gin gimlet.  This is a great recipe for the drink. While the author is not a fan of Roses lime (I get it), I have no issues using Rose’s because that particular brand is heavily associated with the original recipe and sometimes you don’t have or don’t want to make the simple syrup. Sticking with fresh lime juice ensures that this cocktail is much less sweet than the typical margarita.

Caleb Carr’s 1994 best-seller is a great read for anyone who has an appreciation for well told detective tales. In addition, if you are at all interested in history, modern forensics, or 19th century NYC, this is for you. Carr is an American military historian with a terrific knack for telling a story. The Alienist is quick paced and well written, with a great deal of atmosphere. Warning: this one is hard to put down. I can’t speak to the new limited series adaptation currently on television.

Horse Deaths Are Haunting the Racing World Ahead of the Kentucky Derby. Here’s What’s Being Done to Stop Them

The Kentucky Derby, which will be run for the 145th time on May 4, is the oldest continuously held major sporting event in U.S. This year, however, talk of mint juleps, stylish hats and Triple Crown dreams may be overshadowed by a disturbing spate of horse deaths — and fresh calls to regulate the sport.

Between late December and early April, nearly two-dozen Thoroughbred horses died while racing or training at California’s Santa Anita Park. The cause of the fatal injuries is unknown, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney is investigating the deaths. As with all horse injuries, multiple factors may be at play, say safety experts, including heavy rainfall that may have compromised the track surface. The track shut down for much of March and adopted several new policies, including banning the use of drugs on race day and increasing the time required for horses to be on-site prior to a race.

“While the cause of the injuries on the racetrack might be varied, they have one thing in common: the industry has yet to do everything that can be done to prevent them,” wrote Belinda Stronach, chairman and president of the Stronach Group — which owns Santa Anita — in a March open letter. “That changes today.”

That’s a small start. But reforms at one track likely won’t be enough to fix the sport’s systemic problems. Last year, 493 horses died or were euthanized within 72 hours of sustaining a catastrophic race injury. That’s about 10 horses each week. In the last ten years, a total of 6,134 horses have died. That tally doesn’t include deaths from training.

PETA and other animal-rights advocates are sounding off. So are notable horse racing organizations, which say that many horse deaths are preventable. In March, the Jockey Club, which holds the registry for Thoroughbred horses, released a scathing report calling out the sport for tolerating performance-enhancing drugs and running horses that are medicated to dull the pain of pre-existing injuries. “The issue isn’t about a single track,” the report reads. “Horse fatalities are a nationwide problem, one that has shocked fans, the industry, the regulators and the general public.”

An industry overhaul would be difficult, if not nearly impossible, to implement because horse racing has no national rule-making body. The National Thoroughbred Racing Association (NTRA), which sets best safety practices, has no teeth to mandate them. Instead, 38 racing jurisdictions set their own standards.

“We are more of a carrot organization than stick,” says Steve Koch, executive director of the Safety and Integrity Alliance at NTRA, which has accredited 23 tracks. Another 40 tracks are making efforts to be accredited, while others are not engaged with the alliance at all. “We’re making progress, but are not quite there yet.”

Federal oversight is still far off. The Horseracing Integrity Act of 2019 was introduced in the House earlier this year to establish a private, independent horse racing anti-doping authority. It has 69 cosponsors, but does not have full support from the industry. Prior versions of the legislation also failed to make headway in Congress.

History has shown that reforms triggered by horse deaths roll out slowly and inconsistently, from state to state and from track to track.

For instance, after beloved Thoroughbreds Barbaro and Eight Belles died in the late 2000s, the industry began to collect fatal injury data for every U.S. track. Today, every racetrack reports injury death rates to a national database. But only a handful make those numbers public. In Kentucky, Keeneland and Turfway Park both report publicly. But Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, does not. In March, the Louisville Courier-Journal discovered via a public records request that the death rate at Churchill Downs was 2.73 per 1,000 racing starts last year—more than 60% higher than the national average.

This week, the Derby track released a list of safety initiatives that it plans to support in the coming years, as well as a statement from Churchill Downs Inc. chief executive Bill Carstanjen: “As the host of the Kentucky Derby and a key leader in the racing industry, Churchill Downs has a heightened responsibility to implement the world’s best practices for caring for racehorses at our facilities.”

The NTRA’s Koch believes that efforts over the last decade, such as curbing doping drugs and evolving veterinarian protocols, have made a difference. While the U.S. racing fatality rate rose 4% in 2018 compared to the year before, since 2009 the fatality rate has actually declined 16%, from 2 deaths per 1,000 race starts in 2009 to 1.68 last year.

More change could be underway. In mid-April, 20 leading tracks pledged to phase out a drug called Lasix in the coming years. Lasix treats a rare lung condition, but, according to the Jockey Club, it is given to about 95% of horses on race day because it induces urination. Lighter and faster, the horses perform better, but need days to recover and rehydrate.

That’s good news leading into the Kentucky Derby. This year, like every year, America will fall for — and bet on — the Thoroughbreds at Churchill Downs. Now, the racing industry is under pressure to take better care of them.

The Incredible Saga of Tracy Edwards: A Real-Life Female Superhero Who Sailed Around the World

Sony Pictures Classics

In 1989, the first-ever all-female team entered the Whitbread Race to sail around the world. Everyone, from the (male) sailors who scoffed at their efforts to the (male) journalists who took bets on how far they’d make it, was convinced that they would never finish. But the Maiden team, led by the indefatigable Tracy Edwards, not only completed the race but won two legs of it.

On paper, the story of the Maiden yacht reads like documentary catnip. On screen, reanimated through old media clips and exclusive on-board footage, salty shots of the ship pummeling the water and a deck full of women the moment when they realize that they’ve taken the lead, it somehow manages to exceed expectations. Alex Holmes’ Maiden is fun to watch on so many different levels, whether it’s witnessing world-class athletes push their bodies past what even they thought possible or listening to a bunch of old men admit, on the record, that they were wrong to ridicule and underestimate them. At 22, Tracy Edwards decided to put together an all-female crew to sail around the world. Thirty years later, she’s a delight as chief narrator, insightfully and humorously ushering viewers along through the stages of that historic journey.

While the bulk of the film focuses on the race, with all of its built-in drama and visual majesty, we start by getting to know Edwards. It takes a special kind of twentysomething to dedicate her entire life to a project that no one thinks she is capable of, and Edwards is certainly that. Rebellious, stubborn, and adventurous, the teenage Edwards took her school expulsion as an opportunity to travel around the world. By chance, she was offered a position working on a charter yacht. As she became increasingly involved in the sailing world, Edwards learned about the Whitbread Round the World Race, and liked the sound of it. She convinced an entrant to take her on as a cook during the 1985-1986 race. Of the 230 crew members taking part in the race, only four were women.

This Seagull Traffic Reporter Provides the Bird’s Eye View the World Needs Right Now

Transport for London has a new traffic reporter that is earning fans for its unique ability to get a bird’s eye view of the city’s traffic. Of course the ability to get a bird’s eye view comes quite naturally to the reporter, because the reporter is actually a bird.

A photogenic seagull has taken up a perch near a traffic camera above London’s Brunswick Road set up by Transport for London (TfL), which, according to its website, is “a local government organisation responsible for most aspects of London’s transport system.” The public became aware of TfL’s new bird reporter on Monday, when made its first on-camera appearance which was shared on Twitter. The traffic reporting site’s star reporter made a repeat appearance on Tuesday, with TfL sharting the photo with the caption, “Guess who’s back?!”

The world finally started paying attention to the organization’s new traffic reporter on Wednesday, though, when TfL once again tweeted out a photo of the bird. “Due to popular demand, a quick update from our reporter just north of the Blackwall Tunnel…..” With that tweet, people finally realized that TfL was truly backing the seagull’s dream of being an on-camera traffic reporter and helped the avian journalist go viral. At the time of publication, the tweet garnered more than 19,000 retweets and 57,000 likes. As the bird reporter’s popularity grows, hopefully other sites will follow in TfL’s footsteps, because if you want a bird’s eye view of traffic, no one is more suited to the task than an actual bird.

Devastating Notre Dame Cathedral Fire Rocks Fashion World

A catastrophic fire took hold of the Notre Dame Cathedral, one of Paris’ most iconic landmarks on Monday.
The blaze set off on Monday afternoon and continued to rage throughout the evening. Thousands of onlookers in the City of Light watched from the bridges and sidewalks as the building’s famed spire, which painted the Paris cityscape for more than 800 years, collapsed into the flames. No casualties have been reported and there has been no cause for the fire cited at press time. The 14th-century French Gothic building, with its pointed arches, intimidating gargoyles and rose windows was immortalized in film and literature, most notably in Victor Hugo’s classic novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
Designers and dozens of members of the fashion industry have taken to their social media feeds in tribute to the French landmark. See their posts here:

name a planet

Being allowed to officially name a planetary body is a privilege that few are ever granted. Typically, new planets, moons, and other large objects found in space are named by the person or group that discovered them, but many of them are never formally named at all, sitting with their scientifically-designated label for years.

The minor planet 2007 OR10 is one such world and, although it was originally discovered in July 2007, it never received an official name. Now its discoverers want suggestions on what its name should be, and you can help.

This might be how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduce their baby to the world

With the imminent arrival of the royal baby, all eyes are on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry right now, so much so that they just broke this world record. And it’s already clear the couple will do things a little differently to Kate and William.

To start off, their baby announcement will be very millenial, and the Duchess of Sussex apparently won’t pose outside the hospital with her newborn, like the Duchess of Cambridge did with Princes George and Louis and Princess Charlotte.

Instead, she and Harry are said to be taking a leaf out of the Swedish royal family’s book, by planning to give the world its first sight of their offspring… from the comfort of their own home.

The Swedish family often shares pictures on social media of their children at home, and it’s believe Meghan and Harry will use their new Instagram account to introduce their baby to the world.

As the baby isn’t a direct heir to the throne, there isn’t as much pressure for the couple to follow traditions, and this will give the happy parents a bit of time to recover at home before facing the public.

Either way, we can’t wait.

The best secluded beaches in the world


Everyone loves a trip to the beach, right? Feeling the sand between your toes, the sun on your skin, and the sound of the waves crashing around you is something you just can’t beat. However, it seems as though we’re not the only ones who love the beach. Whenever the sun shines, and the heat begins to soar, you can guarantee that your local beach will fill up of vacationers and natives alike. You have to search for a patch of sand to plop down your towel, and the chances of getting an ice cream before they sell out is almost impossible. So, why don’t you take a trip to these secluded beaches instead?

Crane Beach, Barbados

If you’ve always fancied a trip to Barbados, now you have even more reason to go. This Caribbean island is famous for being the home of some of the most impressive beaches in the world, and Crane Beach is no different. However, one of the differences between every other Barbadian beach and Crane Beach is the fact that the latter is extremely secluded. Although it is a public beach, you can guarantee that you’ll always find space on this beautiful pink sand. Remember your swimsuit, though, because you’ll definitely want to have a swim in this ocean!

Crane Beach, Barbados

Smuggler’s Cove, Greece

There are so many beaches in Greece, so what makes Smuggler’s Cove so special? Well, this is the picture that always comes up when you search for Greece, but not many people actually make their way to this place. This beach can only be reached by boat, but if you do manage to book a trip, you’ll soon see what all of the fuss is about. The white rock stands tall above the golden sands and the baby blue water, and it’s definitely a photo opportunity.

Hidden Beach, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

There’s a high chance that you’ve seen pictures of this beach before because it’s the ultimate Instagram spot. Located in a circular cave, a trip to Hidden Beach is not for the fainthearted. To get here, you must make your way through tight cracks in rock and waterfalls. Yet, the end result is definitely worth it. The crescent-moon-shaped beach offers some of the clearest natural water you’ve ever seen, and the sand is as clear as anything. The best part? Very few people make the trip there.

Hidden Beach, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Green Island Beach, Antigua

If you’re looking for a little slice of paradise, then Green Island Beach in Antigua has got your back. The whole island is beautiful and offers lush forest and crystal clear waters. Then, as you make your way to the beach, you’ll be taken away by the fact that the slice is all yours to enjoy. With very few visitors, the island is almost always deserted. This means the coral reefs are also perfect for those who love to get below the surface and dive under.

If you’re looking for hidden and secluded beaches, then you definitely need to check these out.

The biggest party countries in the world


Traveling the globe appears to be a common dream shared by people worldwide, although everyone has different preferences when it comes to what you want to experience. Some enjoy letting fate run its course, letting chance dictate what happens next, and others enjoy a perfectly planned, tight-packed experience filled with activities, cuisine, and adventure. Whether you’re chasing pavements in search of yourself, or to expand your cultural knowledge, sometimes you just need to let loose; so, where’s the party at?

The Netherlands, Amsterdam

Popular with both first-time travelers and the experienced wanderers, Amsterdam has it all, and you’ll probably find yourself returning not long after your first venture. While Amsterdam lures the lonely traveler with its charm and tranquility, it has a different side to it which might surprise you; it’s a massive party hotspot. That’s right, if you think you’ll be hanging your backpack up at 8 pm for lack of things to do, then you’re sorely mistaken. Amsterdam is packed with incredible clubs, pubs, and other midnight establishments. If you’re looking for a party then you’ll find it – whether you want highrise or subterranean, chances are it’s just around the corner.

Amsterdam

Ibiza, Spain

Everyone’s heard of Ibiza, and if you love a party, then you need to grab a friend, pack your bag, and book your flight. While the partying experience might be a little pricey, many have said it was worth the dollar. Ibiza isn’t just about strobe light and dance music, there is also the chilled party vibe option where you can enjoy the island without completely overdoing it. If you’re looking for sun, strobe lights, and sensational music, then Ibiza is the place to go.

London, England

Full of life, wonder, and eccentricity; there’s always a party in England’s capital city! All you need to do it prowl the busy streets of Leicester square to be invited to crazy one-off secret party adventures. Of course, keep your wits about you, but London can become the best party you have ever experienced. Whether you’re looking for a wild jaunt in a London pub or a wacky alternative club experience in Camden town – London will have everything you’re looking for.

Absolutely anywhere in Greece

Nightlife is abundant on the exotic Greek islands, and there is no getting away from it. Your choice of destination will be based on just how wild and cultured you want it to be. Kavos, in Corfu, is a famously wild party destination, but sometimes things can get a little too wild. So much that there are TV shows dedicated to showing the horrors that happen. There are plenty of other areas where you can enjoy a fun, but cultured experience, doing it as the locals do. Mykonos has been classified as wild as Ibiza, a reputation worthy of only the most popular party areas! However, if you’re looking for somewhere a little more sophisticated, then Santorini is your place.

Greece

It depends what kind of party you’re looking for, whether you want to go wild on the shores of a warm beach or get crazy surrounded by the city lights. Whatever you’re looking for, there’s always a place to be.

After college, Weisenberg became a sales trader for UBS. She would do squats at her desk while making calls. “My boss would tell me that it was a little bit weird, but I didn’t want my ass to ever be flat,” Weisenberg said.

The obsession was strong enough to compel her to quit the world of investment banking and start a booty-centric fitness method called Tonique. Fourteen years later, Weisenberg is still at it: “If I had to speak truly from my heart and had the opportunity to switch my ass on my face, I would do it,” she confessed.

MAC is launching an Aladdin collection and it’s about to open up a whole new world of magic

Calling all Disney lovers…

MAC Aladdin

Words by Sophie Saleh

Your wishes are about to come true, as MAC has announced a collaboration with Disney’s live action Aladdin movie, which hits cinemas on the 24th May.

Packed with a mix of precious metals and Jasmine-inspired jewel tones, there’s no doubt you’ll be left feeling like a princess when this drops.

MAC’s senior artist and BBC 3 Glow Up judge Dominic Skinner took to Instagram to confirm the news, writing: ‘Just you wait till you see what the collection has in store for you!! Your wish, our command!

‘Manifest your magic with the Disney Aladdin Collection by M·A·C. Launching this May, this wish-fulfilling collaboration highlights the self-determination and confidence of Princess Jasmine in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disneu’s animated classic, Aladdin – in theatres May 24.’

The campaign puts Naomi Scott, who plays our hero Princess Jasmine in the upcoming film, at the forefront adorned in turquoise and gold.

A lot of the details are still yet to be released, but at the moment there are three products that we know about – cleverly mirroring the Genie’s three wishes granted to Aladdin. Until then, you can sign up for Aladdin updates on MAC’s website.

So far we’ve seen an eyeshadow palette, lipstick and bronzer, all encased in beautifully golden packaging, and MAC have shared some of the eyeshadow swatches on Instagram. All we can say is, take our money NOW.

MAC Aladdin

We’re already lusting over the nine-pan eyeshadow palette filled with purple and golden shimmers, and the hot pink lipstick named A Whole New World has really caught our attention. Not to mention the warm-toned bronzer that we hope will give us that Jasmine-esque glow.

The limited edition collection is said to be available on the 1st of May, so be sure to save that date as it’s going to sell out pretty fast. And, if we’re lucky, there may be a few more additions to the colourful range.

Thanks, Genie.

World Health Organization joins fight against lax genetic editing standards

human genome editing

It’s now been several months since Chinese scientist He Jiankui revealed that he had successfully edited the genes of human embryos, which were then carried to term, resulting in the first genetically modified humans. His work was quickly shunned by all corners of the scientific community, and his fate remains unknown.

Last week, a large group of geneticists and researchers called for a moratorium on genetic editing until a robust regulatory framework could be established. Now, the World Health Organization is weighing in, and while it stops short of suggesting a prohibition on current genetics work, the group makes it clear that it supports regulations and oversight in genome editing.

A Bartender’s View of His World

Jeffrey Morgenthaler

I’ve been behind the bar, full time, for the past 23 years. Which means that almost half my life has been spent making drinks. And yet, somehow, I still love it.

I manage two bars in the same building downtown in Portland, Oregon: Clyde Common and Pépé Le Moko. We’re probably best known for our cocktails, executed every night by a tight-knit crew of talented bartenders. Old Fashioneds, barrel-aged cocktails, boozy milkshakes, and whiskey fortified Amaretto Sours, are what most people think of when they think of our bars.

And to be fair, fancy drinks are what most people envision when they think about a bar these days. But when I think about work, I focus on the in between: those little moments that exist in the place where the built environment ends and the human experience begins. That in-between place is the hardest to describe to people who haven’t spent their lives in a bar, so it’s probably best shared through words and images.

The most romantic wedding proposal spots in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


The best way to work out whether you’ve met the love of your life or not is to take a few notes by a man by the name of Eminem. Yes, if your knees are weak, your palms are sweaty, and the person in question does a mean recreation of your mom’s spaghetti, then you just know you’ve got a keeper on your hands. But instead of staying boyfriend and girlfriend all your life, why don’t you put a ring on it? A proposal is one of the most romantic things you could ever do, but don’t just get engaged in your local park.

Bow Bridge, Central Park, New York City

Every year, countless couples make their way to New York City to embrace the romance and the love of the Big Apple. Of course, this place isn’t just a concrete jungle. While some people choose to get engaged on top of the Rock or up the Empire State Building, there are others who want something more intimate and natural. This is where the Bow Bridge comes into play. This beautiful bridge is surrounded by flowers, trees, and water, and it looks like it’s straight out of the movies.

Shakros Rock, Santorini

Santorini is arguably one of the most beautiful destinations in Greece, and this island offers incredible white buildings with their trademark blue roofs, alongside endless views of the Adriatic. It truly is something that needs to be seen to be believed, but it also serves as an incredibly romantic proposal spot. If you can handle a short hike up to Shakros Rock, you’ll feel on top of the world as you get engaged quite literally on the top of the world.

Lake of Love, Bruges

Why wouldn’t you want to celebrate your love as you stand above the Lake of Love? Bruges is a quaint and quiet tourist destinations that offers various little nooks and crannies for you to truly enjoy your time away from the crowds. The Lake of Lake will provide a fairytale spot for your proposal take place, and it would be hard for anyone to say no when they are surrounded by overhanging trees and turreted houses.

The Shard, London

There’s something about getting engaged up in the air that makes it that extra bit special, which is why The Shard has become an extremely popular and romantic proposal site. With 360-degree views over the city of London, The Shard not only offers beautiful scenery, but it also offers a bar and restaurant for you to celebrate your engagement after they scream “yes” at the top of their lungs. What more could you want?

Under the Northern Lights, Iceland

Of course, the Northern Lights can’t just be seen in Iceland, but Iceland is a particular favorite of ours. The country is like another world, and the color-changing skies will be the perfect backdrop to your proposal. The Northern Lights are a natural phenomenon that can only be seen at certain times of the year, which means that your proposal will be extra special.

So, which one will become your engagement venue?

FIFA Will Publicize Its Vote on the 2023 Women’s World Cup Host

(MIAMI) — FIFA has agreed to make public its vote on the host for the 2023 Women’s World Cup.

The organization’s decision-making body is becoming more transparent after concerns were raised last month that the women’s tournament wouldn’t fully follow the new voting process for the men’s World Cup.

The United States, Canada and Mexico were chosen last year to host the 2026 World Cup. The votes by the FIFA Congress of all member associations were published. Previously, the decisions were taken in private by the scandal-discredited FIFA executive committee, which was renamed the FIFA Council in 2016.

But FIFA announced last month that its 37-person council would still decide on the destination of the 2023 Women’s World Cup, with no mention of votes being publicly declared.

Now, FIFA has said following a meeting in Miami that after the council makes its decision in March 2020, the “result of each ballot and related votes of each member” will be “open and made public.”

It could be the most hotly contested bidding process for the tournament, which was first staged in 1991. Australia, Colombia, Japan and South Africa have been exploring bids. South Korea submitted a proposal to North Korea to jointly bid.

FIFA asked countries interested in bidding to do so by Friday, but it has yet to disclose who made submissions. Bidders have until April 16 to complete their bidding registrations, and bid books must be submitted by Oct. 4.

How the Alleged New Zealand Terrorist Tried to Trick the World

Stringer .

The suspect in the New Zealand mosque shootings used disinformation to manipulate the media response and spreading white supremacist ideas long after the killing had stopped.

All he needed was a forum post, a rambling manifesto, some social media accounts, and a GoPro camera.

Other white supremacists killers, including Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof and Norwegian mass shooter Anders Breivik, have released their own manifestoes and littered social media platforms with clues about their motivations. But the suspect in the Christchurch terrorist attack went much further by trying to control the narrative about what he did.

The coolest airport attractions in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


When they said it’s about the journey as much as the destination, they probably didn’t mean “check out these super cool airport attractions”, but they do make a fun change from spending all your money on duty free before you’ve even got on the plane, or trying to nap sitting up on hard metal chairs. Here are some fun things to check out at various airports around the world.

Aquarium, Vancouver International Airport, Canada

Vancouver has a fantastic aquarium, which is well worth a visit, but if you haven’t found time to squeeze it into your itinerary, the airport has a pretty decent offering. There is an epic 30,000-gallon aquarium where you will see over 5,000 different creatures swimming around, including wolf eels, giant kelp, and rockfish, and another tank that is just full of jellyfish!

Indoor Slide, Changi International Airport, Singapore

This airport has so many fun attractions (from a butterfly garden to a rooftop pool and bar to start your vacation early) that it’s hard to know which one to highlight. However, the enormous four-story slide that is suitable for adults and children is probably the coolest! Much better than having to wait for a lift when you’re in a hurry.

Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Netherlands

The Rijksmuseum is one place that should be on your list if you are ever in Amsterdam, and thankfully there is a collection of exhibits in the airport for your perusal, to whet your appetite before you head to the real thing. You might not be surprised to learn that this is a record breaker, being the first ever major museum based in an airport terminal.

Live concerts, John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York

Live from T5 is a JetBlue exclusive concert series and offers some entertainment before you board. It was launched in 2009 and artists have included The Wanted, Boyz II Men and even Taylor Swift! Your trip has to be pretty well timed to allow you to see an act you love (and you have to be flying with JetBlue), but what a fun way to kick off your vacation before you’ve even left the runway.

Traditional Korean Cultural Experience Zone, Incheon International Airport, South Korea

This is a totally free attraction which aims to teach you a little about South Korean customs and culture in a fun way. There are craft workshops to teach you how to make fans, and amazing shows are put on featuring traditional South Korean acts such as harp recitals and masque dances. Educational but entertaining all at once, you’ll want to spend some time here before your adventures begin.

It doesn’t take much for us to need an excuse to start looking at flights and vacations, to be honest, but these quirky airport attractions are certainly helpful in deciding where to go next. After all, if a flight is delayed, we’d rather spend time going down a four-story slide, or watching fish, than waiting in line for overpriced coffee!

Most incredible waterfalls in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


Although we may be a little biased, the world is pretty darn beautiful. Each country is different in its landscape and its people, and we keep finding new and impressive nooks and crannies that provide us with a feast for the eyes. Yes, there are countless stunning natural phenomena in the world, and the waterfall is one of them. Just like you can never step in the same river twice, you can never clap eyes on the same waterfall twice. Each time you look it’s completely different, and these are the most incredible waterfalls in the world.

Gullfoss Falls, Iceland

If you’ve ever been to Iceland, you’ll know that there’s just so much to see and do. Everywhere you turn there’s a new icy phenomenon, and Gullfoss Falls is one of them. Largely regarded as one of the most famous waterfalls in the world, this incredible sight looks as though it simply vanishes off the face of the earth. The water rushes off the cliff face and plummets into the pool below, but it’s also a sight that changes. In the summer the waterfall is surrounded by lush greenery. In the winter, snow, and ice.

Niagara Falls, US/Canada

Niagara Falls is an enigma in the waterfall world because it actually falls between two different countries. On the one side, it resides in New York State. On the other side, it resides in Ontario, Canada. As if this wasn’t enough to make it famous, Niagara is also one of the most impressive sights in the world. This long waterfall looks even more intense when you take a boat ride just underneath the spray.

Sutherland Falls, New Zealand

New Zealand is known for being one of the most naturally beautiful countries in the world, and their waterfalls definitely help them maintain this reputation. Sutherland Falls takes the record as the tallest waterfall in the country, but it’s not exactly the easiest one to get to. Tourists have to hike through the Milford Track to eventually find this hidden gem, but it’s definitely worth it.

Plitvice Falls, Croatia

Although Eastern Europe isn’t exactly known for its waterfalls, there’s no doubt about the fact that the Plitvice Falls are a beautiful surprise. Located in the largest National Park in the country, this waterfall is more like a hundred waterfalls in one. One giant flow of water separates down through trees and greenery into lush pools below, and it’s truly something that needs to be seen to be believed.

Yosemite Falls, United States

Yosemite National Park is perhaps one of the most famous natural parks in the world, and the huge mountains and awesome forests have welcomed tourists for years. The piece de resistance of this park, however, is Yosemite Falls. This incredible waterfall can’t be missed, considering it falls right down the side of one of the tallest mountains in the park. As the water rushes down, it creates a spray that looks other-worldly.

If you’re a fan of waterfalls, these incredible waterfalls will certainly float your barrel.

Coolest food festivals around the world

ADVERTISEMENT


Imagine jetting off on vacation. Now, imagine jetting off on vacation knowing that you get to satisfy your love of food at the same time. Who knew life could get better? Thankfully, there are a handful of the coolest food festivals around the world that should be more than enough for you to sink your teeth into.

Cayman Cookout – Cayman Islands

Want to learn how to cook from a Michelin-star chef while feeling the white sand from the beaches ooze between your toes? Look no further. The Cayman Cookout is the perfect place for anyone with a love of brilliant weather and food as cooks from all around the world all prepare some of their greatest meals alongside one another while everyone gets to try a piece at the end.

Salon du Chocolat – France

We have two words for you: chocolate and Paris. Yes, this food festival will combine the elegance of the city with the deliciousness of chocolate all in one incredible event. Hundreds of people from all around the world travel to the Salon du Chocolat where they create everything from their finest tastes to chocolate sculptures and everything in between. Still not convinced? There is also a fashion show where the models wear chocolate dresses.

Pizzafest – Italy

Many of us have fallen for pizza over the years, and it seems as though it could soon be time to travel to Italy to give it all the love this food truly deserves. As well as getting to try all kinds of flavors (cue mouth drooling already), visitors can also learn how to make the pizzas for themselves as well as watch some of the top chefs in the world compete head to head in the annual World Pizza-Making Championship.

Chinchilla Melon Festival – Australia

While you might have never realized how much you love melons, that could all be about to change thanks to the Chinchilla Melon Festival in Australia. There is celebrity melon eating, melon skiing, and even melon chariot racing. This food festival is also the perfect place for melon growers to show off their incredible harvest of the year before everyone gets to tuck into a melon feast while dancing the night away at the street parade.

La Tomatina – Spain

This festival is held in a small town in Spain and could be the ultimate way that many of us need to let off some steam. If pelting thousands of strangers with perfectly ripe tomatoes sounds like your idea of a good time then it might be time to book a flight to Spain. Be prepared to get messy as people at this food festival spend an hour throwing nearly 133,000 pounds of tomatoes all thanks to a street brawl back in the ‘40s.

Whether you want to enjoy a selection of gourmet meals or finally have the chance to play with your food, there are so many food festivals in the world that allow thousands of people to come together and show their appreciation for the goods on offer. Life really can’t get much better.

Meet the Women Who Are on Top of the (Art) World

 International Women’s Day 2019

International Women’s Day has returned! What better way to celebrate than by showing off our finest female talent. Even though we are now in 2019, there can be an imbalance between us. Some industries still treat women like second class citizens. Artrepublic couldn’t disagree with this more. This is why we are dedicating this blog post to all the fabulous women we work with!

LOUISE MCNAUGHT

King of a Fading Empire, A Star is Born and Legend by Louise McNaught

Louise McNaught became a professional artist whilst doing a Degree in Fine Art. Her distinctive use of bright colour, fading upward drips shows her obvious love of nature. She has international representation and as of 2018 is also a published Author. Her artwork has also been featured at art fairs in Milan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Stockholm, Brussels and all over the UK.

Recently, McNaught has been using her voice and talent to educate people about all the beautiful animals that are becoming endangered. Her book ‘Survival’ strongly highlights how many animals are being lost using powerful imagery.

Read more about Louise McNaught and check out her upcoming shows on her website HERE


SARA POPE

Love Life Listen, Attitude and Electric By Sara Pope

Bold, seductive paintings of voluptuous lips is what contemporary artist, Sara Pope is known for. Pope had a successful career in the fashion industry (as a shoe designer for brands such as Paul Smith), and also work in magazines as a designer and art director. This is where Sara draws her inspiration from. She aims to capture the glamour and seductive power conveyed by the lips and mouth.

24 galleries in the UK and internationally currently represent her. She has also completed collaborations with BareMinerals makeup, PIAS music label and Saatchi&Saatchi.

See more about what Sara is up to HERE


MARIA RIVANS

Camille, Subdiego and Natural Highs I By Maria Rivans

Maria Rivans is a contemporary British artist, known for her scrapbook-style collage aesthetic. A mash-up of Surrealism meets Pop-Art, Rivans’s work re-appropriates vintage ephemera to create dreamy realms. This transports the viewer into fantastical worlds of the imaginary. Each one suffused with vivid colour, arresting imagery, intricate detail, and finished with a dusting of subtle humour.

Maria works from her studio in Brighton: a kooky building, purpose built as a small cinema in 1911. She exhibits work throughout the UK as well as internationally. These spaces include Hong Kong, New York and across Europe. In 2017 and 2018, her work featured in The Times newspaper. As well as this, in 2018, the Royal Academy’s 250th Summer Exhibition selected her film Still ‘Understanding Nothing.’

Have a look at what Maria Rivans is doing HERE


LUCY BRYANT

Bollocks to Brexit and Starbucks Lovers By Lucy Bryant

Lucy Bryant is a contemporary artist and graphic designer and graduated from the University of Derby. However, Bryant is less defined by her formal art training than by her loose, creative approach and varied influences. These include Pop Art and the Punk music scene. Responding to contemporary culture, Bryant’s art subverts the everyday and the banal. She’s always striving to disrupt the ordinary and create something entirely new.


KRISTJANA S WILLIAMS

Lundunar Moth - Flecked Gold, Calm at Sea and Fox For Tea Diorama By Kristjana S Williams

Kristjana S Williams is an Icelandic born artist who studied graphic design and illustration at Central St Martins. This led to her gaining critical acclaim as Creative Director of Beyond the Valley for 8 years. Williams has become well known in the industry. This has won an array of awards from ‘Dulux Colour Awards’, ‘D&AD’, a New York Festivals Grand Prix and First Prize. As well as this, she was shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

All these women are incredible artists all with their own styles, techniques and messages. Of course, we work with so many more women overflowing with talent that we wish we could have included in this list.

Picks of the Week: Three Thrilling Films Out Now About Women Around the World

Picks of the Week is Women and Hollywood’s newest resource. We are often asked for recommendations, so each week we’ll spotlight the women-driven and women-made projects—movies, series, VOD releases and more—that we’re most excited about. Sign up for the Women and Hollywood newsletter at womenandhollywood.com to get each week’s pick delivered to your inbox.


Pick of the Week: Greta

No good deed goes unpunished in Greta.

The campy thriller sees Chloë Grace Moretz playing Frances, a kind young woman new to New York City. One fateful day, she finds a purse left behind by someone on the subway; the Good Samaritan uses an ID card in the bag to contact its owner, who welcomes Frances into her home. Greta (Isabelle Huppert), a lonely widow living in a foreign land, is grateful to have her purse back, but more grateful for Frances’ company.

Huppert and Moretz have good chemistry as they bond over cinema, tea and cooking. Then, things go sour—and the former begins to stalk the latter, terrorizing her at every turn.

Greta is best viewed in a packed theater. Half the fun of watching the pic is seeing—and hearing—the audience’s reaction as the film becomes increasingly wild and weird. The delightfully absurd roller coaster ride is especially enjoyable alongside other passengers, whether they’re laughing, gasping or sneering at Greta’s twists and turns. (Laura Berger)

Greta opens March 1.


Pick of the Week: Woman at War

Halla (Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir) is a seemingly average Icelandic woman: a choir director trying to adopt an orphan from Ukraine. But behind her apparently normal life, Halla has become a stealth eco-terrorist, using a bow and arrow to knock down power lines and sabotage development in the countryside.

At first, the terrorism is dismissed, but as she becomes bolder and causes more damage, the authorities double down on trying to capture the anonymous warrior who is fighting for a greener future. (Melissa Silverstein)

Woman at War opens in New York and Los Angeles March 1, with a national expansion to follow. Find screening info here


Pick of the Week: Saint Judy

Immigration issues are front and center in the news. Saint Judy reminds you about the people, not the politics, that are affected by the laws.

Judy Wood (Michelle Monaghan), a woman trying to make a living as an immigration attorney, has more cases than she can handle and barely gets paid. But when she represents a woman seeking asylum who has been persecuted due to her gender, she winds up changing U.S. immigration law. (MS)

Saint Judy opens in select cities March 1 and will expand March 8. Find screening info here.

Women and Hollywood educates, advocates and agitates for gender diversity and inclusion in Hollywood and the global film industry. The site, founded in 2007 by Melissa Silverstein, sets the standard, defines the conversation, fuels coverage and reinforces messages throughout the specialized and mainstream media to call for gender parity on a daily basis.

Stella Jean collaborates with Pinko for a more sustainable fashion world

Words by Cristiana Frunza

In 2018 Pinko initiatied the Treedom campaign, a project which allows people to plant a tree with a simple click. The goal behind the project was to give birth to the PINKO forest in Kenya which includes fruit trees like mango, banana, African cherry, avocado and macadamia. The PINKO forest allows to feed and support the local community in the area.

The project was extended when two ethical fashion brands, PINKO and Stella Jean came together. Known for years, Stella Jean has always been in the creation of a more sustainable fashion model through constant and concrete work.

The #StellaJeanPINKOtreedom collaboration released a capsule collection of five t-shirts designed by the Italo-Haitian stylist and produced by PINKO with special attention to sustainability. They revolve around these key issues: sustainability, reforestation, multiculturalism and international cooperation.

We all know being eco-friendly and living consciously is a must nowadays, so why not join the cause? Each piece is made from organic cotton and printed with watercolours.

Best vegan-friendly countries in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


Traveling is the perfect way for us to see everything on offer out there in the world. However, it might seem as though you have to plan even more if you live a vegan lifestyle. That is until learning the variety of the best vegan-friendly countries in the world.

The U.S.

America has been leading the way for many things over the years, and now it seems as though it’s one of the best vegan-friendly countries in the world, too. The west coast is filled with all kinds of vegan restaurants meaning you can eat out without worry, as well as having dedicated stores, clear packaging, and a huge community all willing to help you find the perfect vegan meals on your travels!

The U.K.

One of the best things about eating in the U.K. is the fact the country has adopted many different cooking styles over the years. The farmer’s markets offer up the perfect place to search for fresh produce if you want to cook up your own meals, while the cities, such as the capital London, have plenty of vegan-friendly restaurants. As if that wasn’t enough, many fast food chains now offer up vegan options meaning you can still enjoy all your favorites.

Germany

If you’re traveling through Europe, then you might want to stop off in Germany’s capital, Berlin. This city has been named as the vegan capital of Europe thanks to the huge number of people living in the area who all live by the lifestyle, but that’s not all. Small towns dotted all across the country have all started to embrace the change with several vegan-friendly stores and restaurants providing almost everything you could need.

Taiwan

Believe it or not, but most of the vegetarian dishes in Taiwan are already vegan. The country tends to steer clear of using eggs and dairy in their meals unless you pay extra meaning you should be safe to eat meals from most places without any worry. The government also has some pretty strict rules about the labeling of their food meaning that everything is clearly laid out for us to see – no hidden ingredients in sight.

Israel

Israel is often considered to be one of the top-rated vegan countries in the world thanks to the incredible variety of meal options on the menu. The local dishes of falafels and hummus are perfect for anyone wanting to try some local cuisine, while companies such as Ben and Jerry’s and Dominos both offering vegan versions of their world-known favorite options.

It once seemed as though we had to accept the fact we would be dining in or cooking for ourselves if we wanted to follow our vegan lifestyle while traveling, but that no longer has to be the case. With so many countries learning how to embrace the change, it looks as though the world could soon all be at our fingertips! Now, all we need to do is book some plane tickets and pack our knife and fork.

Pyer Moss And Other Luxury Black-Owned Labels Disrupting the World of Fashion

Several high-end fashion brands from Gucci to Prada to Burberry are under fire for selling racially-insensitive products that resemble blackface. Critics say this points to the need for more diversity in the fashion industry and larger support of black-owned fashion designers and the #buyblack movement at large. Investing and supporting brands made by people of color is one way to ensure that designs are culturally appropriate and may help to eliminate racism and racist imagery in fashion.

Here are four black-owned fashion labels disrupting the fashion industry and using their products to make an impact.

Pyer Moss

Kerby Jean-Raymond, the founder of the menswear label Pyer Moss, is one of the most talked about designers in fashion. He’s dressed Hollywood darlings like Tracee Ellis Ross and Issa Rae and won the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award in 2018, along with a $ 400,000 prize. However, his fashion career almost came to a halt in 2015 after he debuted the Pyer Moss spring/summer 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week. His provocative runway presentation incorporated real footage of police violence against African Americans, including the final minutes before Eric Garner was choked to death by police and a black person being run down by a police car.

“We were the first to bring Black Lives Matter to the runway,” Jean-Raymond told BLACK ENTERPRISE. “That was probably one of the most viral moments in fashion history.” At the time, “the plight of [being] black wasn’t being discussed, but the black body was being used to continue to promote luxury items. So, for us, it was a way to wake them up.”

Although many applauded the New York-born designer for taking a stance against police brutality, the controversial showcase nearly destroyed his company. “It cost me a lot. By doing that, I lost a lot of business,” he said. He lost partnerships and investors and wasn’t able to fully recover until 2017 when he was offered a deal to work with Rebook. Despite feeling like a “martyr,” today Jean-Raymond says he’s thankful that his brand helped pave the way for conscious fashion. “We’re grateful to be one of the leaders of that change.”

Last year, Jean-Raymond teamed up with Hennessy to create a capsule apparel line that honors the legacy of pro cyclist Marshall “Major” Taylor, one of the first African American international sports champions. The unsung athlete set multiple world racing records in the 1890s while overcoming racial bias. “He’s one of those world champion athletes like Jack Johnson who’s largely been omitted from the history book,” said Jean-Raymond.

 


Life On Autopilot

Christopher Tuning and Talib Graves-Mann launched Life On Autopilot (LOA) in 2016 after becoming frustrated with the lack of stylish solutions to protect their baseball caps while traveling. As a solution, they created a luxury luggage brand company that combines style with innovation and is designed specifically for trendsetters and tastemakers.

Their first product, the SkyCap, is a luxury cap carrier with an internal storage compartment. The premium leather carrier holds six baseball caps, while the interior is lined in suede and includes a zipper compartment, an underbelly zip pocket, and a custom snap hook. Tuning says the design was influenced by hip-hop, sports, and black culture.

In addition, LOA offers luggage items and travel accessories, like their First Class Backpack, which comes with a shoe compartment, two front zip pockets, and multiple interior pockets.

“I started off with very few resources and capital, says Tuning, who also serves as the brand’s CEO, in a statement. “I’ve found beauty in the struggle driven by a force of passion and perseverance that comes from knowing my ancestors didn’t have the opportunities I have today.”

According to Graves-Mann, shoppers frustrated with the lack of diversity in fashion should support companies like LOA, which are inspired and intended for the culture.

“It is important for our community to seek out and invest in luggage designers that reflect our community,” he told BE in an email. “Our products are of equal—if not higher quality—than many of the luxury brands in the marketplace. Each of our products are hand-made and also culture-made.”

Stevie Boi has been disrupting the fashion world with his unique eyewear collections since he was thrust into the industry at the age of 19. His ornate eyewear, SBShades, have been flaunted by Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna. Like his sunglasses, Boi, himself, is known for his fierce and bold style as well as his androgynous looks. Meanwhile, in addition to being edgy and daring, his runway shows are known for being a platform that promotes diversity and being inclusive. “If you look at the people who’ve walked for me in all of my shows from the get-go, [they’re] all different sizes, colors, ethnicities, etc.,” he told BE minutes before his fall/winter 2019 collection made its debut at New York Fashion Week. “I include everybody.” Some of the models included transgender model Shauna Brooks, Love and Hip Hop: New York’s Bianca Bonnie, and TV personality Jose Ayala.

Despite his 10-year success in fashion, Boi says that SBshades grew in demand and in popularity years before it actually became lucrative. “The challenges started off when I was younger,” he admits. “I didn’t know what I was doing. I had a lot of people utilize my products and wear them on billboards and album covers…but I didn’t know how to turn it into income. So I went a good five years without making any income. I had a government job to support my business and that’s how I was able to stay afloat.”

New York native McKenzie Liautaud is a former model-turned-jewelry designer who creates timeless pieces with a purpose. Inspired by his Haitian roots and love of healing crystals, Liautaud’s upcoming Spring 2019 Collection, Voodoo, is dispelling the myths and stereotypes around the religion, which is largely practiced in Caribbean islands and parts of Africa. Liautaud believes in the magic of Voodoo and the power of precious gemstones such as rock crystals, pyrite, rose quartz, labradorite, and jade to attract love, luck, and prosperity.

His signature collections utilize delicate 14 karat cable chains, lustrous natural freshwater pearls mixed with assorted gems, and his signature star symbol. McKenzie Liautaud Jewelry has been flaunted by celebrities like Eva Longoria, Rosario Dawson, Shakira, and Will.I.AM. In addition to sending positive vibes, 10% of sales benefit New Story, a nonprofit charity dedicated to building sustainable homes for disaster victims around the world. He aims to raise $ 39,000 to help build six homes in Haiti. “I do this in honor of my parents who emigrated from Port-au-Prince to New York and raised six children in a happy, healthy, and safe home,” he said in a statement.

Countries with the worst traffic in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


If there’s one thing that many of us can’t stand it’s sitting in traffic. Sure, it starts out as a time to people watch or sing along to the radio, but it can soon see even the best of us lose our cool. We just want to get home! If you’re sick of looking at tail lights, then you might want to avoid the countries with the worst traffic in the world.

The U.S.

It might be no surprise to hear that the U.S. has some of the worst traffic in the world after learning that Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Miami are all listed in the top 10 most congested cities. In fact, LA takes the top spot on the planet. It’s thought the small streets teamed with the number of people – in between the many tourists that visit the country every year – are all contributing factors to the traffic issue.

Thailand

While Thailand might be on many people’s bucket lists of places to visit, it seems as though you might spend the majority of the time sat in the car judging by their traffic issues. Although there is a driving test, which is prepared for through lessons around a driving obstacle course, most of the problems on the roads appear to be caused by people driving just about however they like – including blocking intersections for hours.

China

Although China has become famous for their incredible public transport system, it seems as though many residents still prefer to hit the open road – or enjoy sitting in traffic on it at least. Many reports state how car ownership is rapidly increasing across the country, while many of the cities are filled with complex road systems and a network of underground tunnels that appear to try and make things as confusing for drivers as possible.

Mexico

Mexico City has the highest population in North America, and it’s thought that people could spend hours on their daily commute. In fact, studies have shown how most drivers in the city will spend a whopping 219 hours stuck in traffic each and every year. As well as losing days of their lives to the heavy traffic throughout the country, all that extra time on the road is said to be one of the major factors of the country’s rising pollution issues.

Romania

Romania is a beautiful country, and you’ll get plenty of time to enjoy it from behind the wheel of your car as you sit in hours of traffic. The capital, Bucharest, is thought to be the worst affected area, especially at rush hour. Parking is free throughout the city while the public transport system leaves plenty to the imagination, both of which have become a recipe for plenty of backlogs throughout the twisting streets of the city.

While many of us love the idea of hitting the open road, it seems as though we might want to avoid the countries with the worst traffic in the world if we’re going to put our pedal to the metal.
