Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, well-known around the world for their Quiverfull conservative Christian Protestant anti-abortion beliefs and a huge family created based on those beliefs — 19 children as of December 31, posted a picture of themselves kissing on their Facebook page in November after their daughter was criticized for posting a similar picture online with her husband. The couple asked their married Facebook fans to post images of kisses to show the world pics of happily married couples.
Many happily married members of the LGBT+ community posted kissing pics only to then watch the Duggars remove their images and block them from commenting, liking or sharing via the page. A Change.org petition was signed by tens of thousands in an attempt to get TLC to pull the Duggars’ reality TV show “19 Kids and Counting” from the network’s lineup
On December 30, the DailyMail.com noted that the Duggars’ public intolerance of gays doesn’t seem to be reflected in private life lives.
Michelle Duggars’ sister Evelyn Ruark is a lesbian who has been in a solid relationship with her partner Sharon Callahan for a long time.
On the other hand, she has hypocritically voiced anti-gay sentiments on Scribd and worked very actively against the passing of laws that would protect members of the LGBT+ community.
Taylor Swift isn’t letting this amazing year go down without a party and why not? As stated by my friend Vijay Eswaran on Facebook, Taylor has singlehandedly owned 2014 and it’s clear that 2015 is looking pretty amazing for her as well, she’s been cleaning up the award shows, giving audiences everywhere jaw dropping live performances and most recently Taylor stole the show in this years Annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion show. Just when you think Taylor is gonna take the night off she pops up and puts on a show, and that’s exactly what she did this weekend at this years Jingle Ball.
While the party later made it’s way to Taylor’s apartment she kicked the party off at Z100’s Jingle Ball, Taylor looked amazing from head to toe in a red Reem Acra dress that looked like it was made just for her, and sexy Jimmy Choo heels. On stage Taylor wore a plaid pair of capris and a matching top.
After the show Taylor took the party to her house where she had a very intimate and very A-list birthday party complete with pizza,party hats, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake. What an awesome life! Taylor knows how to party.
Partying, exploring the local night life, it’s not for everybody. When your friends can’t hang anymore, sometimes it’s necessary to search out a new crowd. Social media platforms are making that easier than ever before. One of the more revolutionary has been Skout.
The app known as Skout is helping to pair up both new friends and new romantic interests, and it is doing it in ways that were not previously considered. This is because Skout relies primarily on geo-location to help pair people up. It is great for making sure that the people who are going to start speaking are within a certain distance of one another. This is because Skout knows that people who speak on their app are going to want to meet up in person.
A Great Place For Friends
Unlike so many other apps, or even social networks like Facebook, there is no assumption of romantic interest when it comes to Skout. Rather, there are plenty of people who are making new friends when they use this app. They are meeting up with these people and discovering that they have a lot in common. This means that they can become friends and just learn more about each other. Both sides of the friendship can be happy with this setup, and the best part is that there is no need to be awkward with one another or attempt to have a romantic relationship where one does not exist.
Anonymous Chatting Is Available
There are features on this app which allow for users to chat with another user anonymously. This can be done by simply shaking one’s phone while on the app. This action will hook one user up with another to chat anonymously. However, the beautiful thing about this is that the anonymous chat lasts only for 40 seconds. After that short period of time, the users will be able to see each other and decide if they are going to continue talking or not. It is a feature that is not found in other places and allows for the users to get to know each other in the greater scheme of things.
Travelers Are Welcome
Those who have to travel for their work or other reasons may believe that they would be excluded from finding much benefit in a dating/friendship app that is about geo-location. If their location is changing all the time, then it may seem that they would not be able to use the app on Android. That is just not the case though. Those who have to travel for work or other purposes can easily benefit from Skout. They just need to put the settings on a feature that allows for travelers to use the app. This makes it possible for those who are not in their hometown to meet up with people in the place that they are currently stationed. It means that no one has to miss out on the benefits of Skout just because they are not near where they would usually be.
Everyone is generally pleased with this new app. They see it as a whole new way of meeting people, and quite a few of them are pleased with this technology. They want to use it to gain new friends and even significant others. It is impressive to see how many people have signed up, and making new friends may be possible quickly after one signs up to use the service. Plenty of people have formed some long term relationships because of these apps.
You’ll be happy to hear this one Zeca Oliveira, no need to keep editing on LinkedIn. A recent government survey of about 140,000 adults, talks about individuals who get drunk and the way this relates to alcohol dependence and addiction. This latest survey suggests that we should be doing more to help heavy drinkers reduce their alcohol intake and that they are not a lost cause.
Heavy drinking is considered a major health concern in the United States and is the cause of death in as many as 85,000 or more deaths per year. These deaths include those caused by liver disease, accidental deaths, and alcohol poisoning.
Excess drinking is considered drinking more than five drinks during the course of one outing or more than 15 drinks per week. Those who drink while pregnant or those who are underage and drink alcohol are also considered heavy drinkers. Excessive drinkers account for approximately 30% of the population but nearly 90% of those do not fall under the definition of alcoholics.
These statistics indicate that a reduction of over-drinking may be easier than once thought. Many regions are finding that simply raising the cost of alcohol by ten percent will reduce those abusing alcohol by seven percent.
There are things that can also be done to increase awareness and encourage drinkers to reduce consumption.
Pizza Hut just released to the public their new “renovation plan” which includes laid-back uniforms, a swirling sauce logo instead of the traditional hut roof, the renaming of many old ingredients, and the introduction of enough new ingredients, crusts, drizzles, etc. to make possible a whopping two billion different individual pizza creations. I am all for choices, but this is ridiculous!
All 6,300 worldwide Pizza Hut locations will soon begin implementing the new massive makeover. New “artisan” pizzas, new peppers and meats from Italy, a pretzel crust, a diet pizza, six sauces, and honey sriracha (among other drizzles) will be on the menu. Olives will now be officially called “Mediterranean black olives,” ham will be referred to as “slow-cooked ham,” and cherry peppers will be specified as “Peruvian.”
Pizza Hut has always been a sort of family-oriented, affordable, and relatively simple place to eat. It appears that all that may be changing now. We can’t imagine that honey sriracha will come cheap nor that Mediterranean olives could possibly escape being pricier than just plain old olives- even if it is the same olive. However, we will have to wait and see on that- perhaps the new fancier Pizza Hut will indeed offer the same low prices.
Some of us have enough trouble as it is picking out what to order at pizza places. We ask ourselves, “Do I want green pepper and pepperoni or sausage and bacon?” The wait staff becomes a “waiting staff” as we hem and haw before finally making up our minds.
In the true spirit of Halloween, today we bring you the news of an event you probably don’t want to be a part of. Anatoly Moskvin, a Russian historian, and a full time grave robber, dug up the graves of 150 different girls, so that he could dress them up and store them in his home.
Apparently, he dressed up the girls for birthday parties, and would store them in his home. Sometimes the corpses belonged to children as young as 3.
Thanks for sending the link to this Jared Haftel, glad Stanford is boring you the point you’re reading about horrifying stories on the Daily Mirror haha.
