There’s No Room for Wild Animals in This Modern World

wildlife-population-cut-in-half

A new report from the Living Planet Index states that world wildlife populations have been reduced to half of what they were 40 years ago. The population of wild mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish is down by an average of 52%, while the population of freshwater species is down 76%. No word on house pets and zoo animals, because nobody tracks that sort of thing, but those numbers are probably holding steady.

Generation Wuss by Bret Easton Ellis

In his books, he used to shoot at the materialistic excesses of his generation. But today, youth has become Bret Easton Ellis’ favorite target. According to him, young people are just too sensitive, too narcissistic ,too stupid. But ultimately, as he explains in this exclusive text, he kind of feels sorry for them (and they love it !).

A Mural That Grows With Each Donation

Madsteez was born with a rare condition in his left eye that enables him to only see abstract shapes and colors when his right eye is closed. Throughout his life, he has wondered what it would be like to have perfect vision, and has questioned if he would still be an artist and what his art would look like if he saw the world through a normal lens? Using this disability as a starting point, two filmmakers are creating a short asking “what if?” and in turn Madsteez, known for his large, bright pieces is creating a work of art central to the film. Each pledge of $100 on kickstarter entitles you to one 20″ x 20″ canvas, that will then become part of the mural. The more you buy, the bigger it gets.

“Stealthy Starbucks”

cia-starbucks

Located inside the CIA’s headquarters in Langley, VA, Starbucks “Store Number 1″ is allegedly one of the busiest in the world, and also due to security risks, the only shop where customer’s names are not written onto cups. Yet somehow through all the secrecy we’re able to learn that the most popular items ordered are vanilla lattes and lemon pound­cake during the day, and double espressos and Frappuccinos at night. The store’s manager has one goal for the operation, to “help humanize the environment” for the agents who are isolated without cellphones inside the secretive campus. Because lord knows, we have to keep them as human as possible.
