Amanda Seyfried Apologizes For Thin-Shaming Arielle Charnas Betches

Yesterday, the influencer world and regular world alike were set ablaze when Amanda Seyfried came for (full, not semi) influencer Arielle Charnas in an Instagram post that shamed her for “promoting an unhealthy body image”, among other things. I did a pretty extensive writeup here, so you should read that first if you’re not already up to date on what went down, but basically: Arielle Charnas posted a bikini pic, Amanda Seyfried’s friend came for her in the comments for not acknowledging all the help she has (nannies, workouts) to get the way she looks, she and Amanda got blocked, and then Amanda screen shotted that comment and put it on her feed. And if you think the internet was …

How To Break the F*ckboy Cycle For Good Betches

DON’T Just Take What You Can Get If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that at some point you’ve found yourself waiting to hear from a person you like for longer than is reasonable. Maybe, like my younger self, you’ve even gone so far as to delete his or her number from your phone and consider such person a lost cause. Of course, as soon as you proceed to get on with your life, the deadbeat in question miraculously resurfaces, whether it’s with a last-minute request for a date or a booty call well after you have made plans with friends (or, better yet, your couch). As much as you may want to respond and make yourself immediately available, …

I Show My Poor Relationship With Junk Food And My Own Body Image (10 pics)

DiscomfortFood is about my body, my self-image, and my mental health through the lens of junk food. Specifically, the junk food that I personally abuse. For me, that is pizza, pasta, potatoes, popcorn, Pepsi, pie. Carbs and sugar, ice cream, burgers, and salted fries! More info: Instagram | When I conceived the DiscomfortFood series, this image was one of the most important ones in the whole series. Sour Cream Glazed doughnuts are my 2nd favorite type.

Trump administration to approve pesticide that may harm bees

EPA said studies it considered, most of which were sponsored by industry, found sulfoxaflor isnt dangerous for the pollinators The Trump administration is approving the pesticide sulfoxaflor thought by some experts to harm bees for use on a wide variety of crops. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says the studies it considered, most of which were sponsored by industry, found the chemical is not dangerous for the pollinators responsible for $15bn in US crops each year. Beekeepers in the US banned the use of 12 out of 59 neonicotinoid pesticides as part of a legal settlement with a food safety group. The EU last year enacted a threatens bee reproduction. EPA has been allowing the emergency use of the pesticide …

Iran shows growing fury in the Gulf. It really is desperate to talk

Abu Dhabi (CNN)The British Heritage super tanker is owned by BP, under a British flag, and on charter to an Anglo-Dutch company, so it’s unsurprising that the ship appeared to abandon suddenly its plans over the weekend as it sailed within sight of Iran. The skipper’s instincts were dead on. According to sources in the British Ministry of Defence, the Montrose drove off three Iranian gunboats that sought to herd the tanker into Iranian waters in or near the Straits of Hormuz. HMS Montrose manned its guns and leveled its 30-millimeter automatic cannon to add menace to the verbal warnings given to the Iranian ships to clear off. The Iranians deny the incident ever occurred. But the United States says …

Exclusive: Democrats to introduce resolution in House on Tuesday in recognition of extreme threat from global heating A group of US lawmakers including the 2020 Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders are proposing to declare the climate crisis an official emergency a significant recognition of the threat taken after considerable pressure from environment groups. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congresswoman from New York, and Earl Blumenauer, a Democratic congressman from Oregon, plan to introduce the same resolution in the House on Tuesday, their offices confirmed. A Sanders spokesperson said: President Trump has routinely declared phony national emergencies to advance his deeply unpopular agenda, like selling Saudi Arabia bombs that Congress had blocked. On the existential threat of climate change, Trump insists on …

Earthquake Mountain Island Disappears Into The Sea Less Than A Decade After Forming

A teensy little mud island off the coast of Pakistan has subsided from sea erosion just six years after forming from an earthquake-triggered mud volcano, reports NASA Earth Observatory. Zalzala Koh, which means Earthquake Mountain in Urdu, formed in 2013 after a 7.7-magnitude earthquake rocked western Pakistan. Measuring just 20 meters (65 feet) high, 90 meters (295 feet) wide, and 40 meters (130 feet) long, the island was made after the quake triggered a mud volcano – a buildup of sediment caused by tectonic plate activity. Islands created by mud volcanoes in this area come and go. Each year, the Arabian plate sinks a few centimeters beneath the Eurasian plate, a process known as subduction, which pushes soft sediments onto …

Jeffrey Epstein hobnobbed with Hollywood, media elite despite dirty past as registered sex offender, reports say

This March 28, 2017 image provided by the New York State Sex Offender Registry shows Jeffrey Epstein. The wealthy financier pleaded not guilty in federal court in New York on Monday, July 8, 2019, to sex trafficking charges following his arrest over the weekend. Epstein will have to remain behind bars until his bail hearing on July 15. (New York State Sex Offender Registry via AP) “Equally troubling are Epstein’s long-cultivated relationships within Hollywood and New York media circles, where he moved with ease well after his high-profile 2008 conviction for soliciting prostitution from girls as young as 14,” THR’s Tatiana Siegel and Marisa Guthrie wrote. The report says that Epstein has been escorted to A-list events by “New York society doyenne” Peggy …

Stranger Things Season 3’s Most Feminist Moments Betches

Stranger Things is one of my favorite shows ever. I am just so invested in all of it, and I’m super mad we waited two years for only eight episodes that I watched in one day, and now I have to wait another year to see more. Ugh. But in addition to being a love letter to ’80s sci-fi and horror movies, Stranger Things season 3 really does such a great job writing female characters. Especially considering the show’s creators are men. Normally, women in movies and TV are depicted as love interests, almost exclusively. It’s so bad that we have things like the Bechdel test to determine whether women were accurately represented in fiction as more than just objects of desire …

Customer Accuses Waiter Of Racism And Terrible Service, Gets Exposed By The Owner

We love it when small businesses get their own back on fake and malicious ‘reviews’ here at Bored Panda. There’s just something really satisfying about an eloquent and damning exposé of the true story; that perfect response which gloriously denies an entitled customer’s childish thirst for petty revenge. Image credits: Blade & Timber KC, an axe-throwing facility located in Leawood, Kansas (They have five other facilities located across the US). Someone calling themselves George B. clearly didn’t have a great experience there, and decided to write a damning review about it on Yelp. “Our Blade & Timber team has created an incredibly controlled environment to ensure our guests are safe and have fun while throwing axes. Coaches are required to pass a safety test …

18 Reactions To Disney Refusing To Let Grieving Dad Put Spider-Man On 4-Year-Old Sons Headstone

Disney is taking hits from all sides at the moment after they denied a grieving father permission to use the image of Spider-Man on his son’s grave. Ollie Jones died in December aged just 4 years old after battling with leukodystrophy, a rare genetic disease which his sister Laillah is also living with. The family are understandably bereft and hoped to mark his grave with a specially designed Spider-Man headstone. Image credits: Image credits: Image credits: swns “For that reason, we follow a policy that began with Walt Disney himself that does not permit the use of characters on headstones, cemetery or other memorial markers or funeral urns.” “Although we cannot grant the family’s request, we would be pleased to …

This Dutch City Is Boosting Its Bee-Friendly Credentials By Installing Green-Roofed Bus Stops

The Dutch are known for their green fingers (tulips, anyone?), but this summer they are taking their flower obsession a step further as the city of Utrecht installs green roofs on its 316 bus stops. Aside from looking quite pretty, the initiative is designed to attract biodiversity. The roofs are mostly comprised of sedum plants, those that are not only conveniently hardy and low maintenance but good for improving air quality and attracting pollinators. Pollinators – a group of animals that includes bees, wasps, butterflies, moths, flower beetles, and ants – have been having a hard time of it lately, with what some people are referring to as the “insect apocalypse“.  This follows reams of data that suggests the world’s …

U.S. Appeals Court: Trump Cannot Block Twitter Followers

In a 3-0 decision, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment forbids Trump from using Twitter’s “blocking” function to limit access to his account, which is otherwise open to the public. The White House and the U.S. Department of Justice did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Twitter had no immediate comment. Tuesday’s decision upheld a May 2018 ruling by U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan. Trump’s use of Twitter had been challenged by plaintiffs including the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University. Its lawyers did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
