Thinkbeforeyouspeak.com has released its new campaign on the issue of teens experience homophobic remarks and harassment.
” This campaign aims to raise awareness about the prevalence and consequences of anti-LGBT bias and behavior in America’s schools. Ultimately, the goal is to reduce and prevent the use of homophobic language in an effort to create a more positive environment for LGBT teens. The campaign also aims to reach adults, including school personnel and parents; their support of this message is crucial to the success of efforts to change behavior.”
I’d say this helps a lot more people than teens, really, many adults are still acting like a kid.
They have also enlisted Wanda Sykes and Hillary Duff to appear in two PSAs that draw attention to the phrase “that’s so gay” and its interpretations.
“When it comes to fitness there is no boring routine at Jab. They manage all aspects of their business like their workouts; fun, fast and interactive. That is why they chose Prosperity Research (a.k.a www.SO-U.TV) to pump up their internet presence and get them in touch with their client base. Prosperity Research will create a dynamic high energy internet campaign that will send a knock out punch to their competitors.:
“Ellen DeGeneres has signed on as the latest face of CoverGirl Cosmetics and will star in a new print and commercial ad campaign that’s rolling out in January.
That’s the first thing they teach you when you’re a cover girl,” DeGeneres said, striking a modelesque pose for her studio audience on Tuesday’s edition of Ellen, where she also showed off a picture of her, mid-touchup, during a recent photo shoot. “They’re putting some lip liner on me-man they love lip liner,” she said.“
Dolphins usually give birth during night time in private, not this dolphin apparently. According to Telegraph UK, “This Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) unusually gave birth in broad daylight and close to a viewing window so that photographer Leandro Stanzani had a grandstand view. The calf emerged tail first – so it does not breathe in water – and was able to see and swim immediately. The calf began feeding very quickly taking in the vital colostrum which allows it to build up its immune system.“
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s been a long time but the wait is worth it. Listen to Pink’s So What, produced by Max Martin. This new single solidifies her position as pop’s rock girl with a stomper that includes blaring guitars, subtle synth flicks and a hooky chorus that will hit you with flue-like infection. “So What” deals with life after marriage as Pink makes several references to her divorce of Corey Hart after his rumored infidelity. The video for the single will premier on August 22 and will show the singer riding up and down the Sunset Strip in a lawn mover.
And yes, just like Stupid Girl, there is a reference to Jessica Simpson.
NASA has released an image this week to commemorate the Hubble Space Telescope’s 100,000 orbit. This nebula, imaged by the Hubble Space Telescope on August 10, is about 170,000 light-years away.
“The image reveals dramatic ridges and valleys of dust, serpent-head ‘pillars of creation,’ and gaseous filaments glowing fiercely under torrential ultraviolet radiation. The region is on the edge of a dark molecular cloud that is an incubator for the birth of new stars. The high-energy radiation blazing out from clusters of hot young stars is sculpting the wall of the nebula by slowly eroding it away. Another young cluster may be hidden beneath a circle of brilliant blue gas. In this approximately 100-light-year-wide fantasy-like landscape, dark towers of dust rise above a glowing wall of gases on the surface of the molecular cloud. The seahorse-shaped pillar at lower, right is approximately 20 light-years long, roughly four times the distance between our sun and the nearest star, Alpha Centauri. The region is in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite of our Milky Way galaxy. It is a fascinating laboratory for observing star-formation regions and their evolution. Dwarf galaxies like the Large Magellanic Cloud are considered to be the primitive building blocks of larger galaxies.”
