Giant bong attraction proposal

are often quirky, but this one takes the cake. Paul Pearson, an artist living in New South Wales, Australia wants to make a giant wooden bong his town’s chief tourist attraction, and it’s easy to see why — the town’s name is Woodenbong after all. Paul Pearson would like to build and erect a massive wooden bong in town as a way to increase tourism. He wants the landmark to be bigger than the “Big Merino,” a 50-foot concrete merino ram in Goulburn, meaning this smoking device would be pretty...

Why newsletters are the best form of social media: “You don’t have to fight an algorithm to reach your audience”

In The New York Times, Mike Isaac explains why newsletters are a better way of communicating than Facebook and Twitter. For me, the change has happened slowly but the reasons for it were unmistakable. Every time I was on Twitter, I felt worse. I worried about being too connected to my phone, too wrapped up in the latest Twitter dunks. A colleague created his own digital detox program to reduce his smartphone addiction. I reckon he made the right choice. Now, when I feel the urge to tweet an idea...

5 Unsung Word of Mouth Marketing Examples

Word of mouth marketing is — and has always been — the most effective (and cost-effective) way to generate customers and grow any business. But for a long time, word of mouth marketing has been mostly ignored in favor of outbound and inbound acquisition efforts, plus a big shift toward social media. The truth is that social media and word of mouth marketing are NOT THE SAME THING any more than toothpaste is the same as a toothpaste tube. Word of mouth is the toothpaste; social media is the tube...

"'For men, the black turtleneck did it all. This garment was supposed to indicate the kind of freedom from sartorial convention demanded by deep thought...'"

"'... or pure creation (usually poetic)—with overtones, always carried by masculine black clothes,' fashion historian Anne Hollander wrote in her book Seeing Through Clothes. In spite of its long history, a backlash to the turtleneck followed [Elizabeth] Holmes’s explosive downfall. Will we think back to Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs when we think of the black turtleneck? Or will seeing Jennifer Lawrence scamming millions in the look forever taint it? As Vanessa Friedman wrote in the New York Tim...

Welcome to Hindsight 2020, Refinery29's weekly column reflecting on the women running for president and the lessons learned (or not!) from 2016.Sen.

King Asked If White Society Superior To Nonwhite: ‘I Don’t Have An Answer For That’

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) does not seem to be straining himself particularly hard to shake accusations that he has white supremacist sympathies. According to the New York Times, a constituent lobbed him a softball question Tuesday: “Do you think a white society is superior to a nonwhite society?” King flubbed it. “I don’t have an answer for that. That’s so hypothetical,” he said. “I’ll say this, America is not a white society — it has never been a completely white society. We came here and joine...

Mike Trout Doesn’t Care About His Online Brand. He Just Made $430 Million.

Photo of Mike Trout from 2013 by Keith Allison. Mike Trout, the center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels, is finalizing a $430 million contract extension with his team. This is the largest deal in the history of professional sports. One of the surprising elements of Trout’s story is that he’s reached these unprecedented heights while remaining, to quote Tom Boswell from today’s Washington Post, “a quiet, understated player, who has never tried to brand himself.” I got in some hot wa...

FCC Admits in Court That It Can't Track Who Submits Fake Comments

The FCC’s public comment system is a bloody mess. Over the past two years, it’s become apparent that political lobbyists, usually acting on behalf of the telecom industry itself, are prepared to manipulate the agency’s rulemaking process and impersonate everyday Americans just to create the illusion of public support…Read more...

Why I Wrote LA PASSIONE

In the gleaming kitchen of her culinary academy in Florence, I once asked an architect-turned-chef-turned-restaurateur about the passions that had changed her life: How did she know that she was choosing the right one to follow? “Ah, signora, we do not choose our passion,” she said. “Passion chooses us.” I understood. Italy chose me. Decades ago, shivering in a frigid Swiss station after a talk in Gstaad, I impetuously switched trains and headed south to a sun-kissed country I’d never visited. ...

Food writer Mark Bittman "has bounced around since leaving The Times."

"He spent less than a year at Purple Carrot, a vegan meal-kit start-up. He wrote a column for New York Magazine and Grub Street. He started a newsletter. He posted recipes on his personal website. All along, he said, he had the idea of creating his own publication.... Salty, which is making its debut on Tuesday, will comprise recipes, stories related to food and more. 'There’s a large part of me that wants people to be interested in food agriculture, or policy, or kids, or immigrants, or race,' ...

The Puppet Masters Behind AOC Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ~ VIDEO

Opinion This article first appeared on WND News. USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Freshman U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is a “puppet congresswoman,” and “the people controlling her are very dangerous.” It sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, acknowledges actor, writer and political commentator, Christopher Patrick Kohls. But the first-hand evidence is there for anyone to see, he contends in a youtube video produced under his Mr. Reagan moniker. “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not really t...

Everything we know about Ethiopian Airlines’ deadly crash of a Boeing 737 Max 8, the second disaster involving the plane in 5 months, and what Boeing is doing to ensure it never happens again (BA)

A Boeing 737 Max 8 operated by Ethiopian Airlines was the second such plane to crash in five months on Sunday, March 10.  No cause has been determined, but experts say there are many similarities to the Lion Air crash in October. Most countries — including the US, Europe, and China — have all grounded the plane.  Boeing says it will soon roll out software updates to fix a problem with how the plane flies.  Boeing's stock price, as well as shares of related companies, have taken major hits as t...

Apple is pitching its new subscription service as a savior to journalism, but publishers say its logic is flawed

Apple is set to launch a new all-you-can-read news subscription service along with other services at a big event next week. Critics of the plan say while Apple is pitching itself as a savior to the publishing industry with the new service, its logic is flawed. They say Apple is pointing to Apple Music as evidence of its subscription know-how. Big news publishers are said to be sitting it out because Apple’s financial and data-sharing terms are seen as unfavorable to them. Conversely, a publish...

Is Trump really about to attack Venezuela?

Last week Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered the last of the US diplomats out of Venezuela, saying their presence was a “constraint” on US policy toward the country. The wording seemed intended to convey the idea that the US is about to launch military action to place a Washington-backed, self-appointed politician to the presidency. Was it just bluster, designed to intimidate? Or is the Trump Administration really about to invade another country that has neither attacked nor threatened the U...

Repurposed churches in former USSR

Although Christianity is experiencing a comeback under Putin’s Russia, the relationship between the Kremlin and the Church hasn’t always been trouble-free. Following Karl Marx’s idea that religion is the “opium of the people,” the Soviet Union set out to eradicate organized faith entirely, with the Russian Orthodox Church being its primary target. In the attempt to convert the whole nation into atheism, Lenin and his successors persecuted believers and most members of the clergy, sending Chri...

Be Nathanael, Be the Woman. Sow the Good News.

Two people, two different stories?  Perhaps not. In the Gospel of John, Jesus reveals himself to a variety of people, and the ministry of spreading the word, sowing and reaping the Good News begins. Today’s Gospel reading, John 4:27-42, puts us right in the middle of Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. Jesus has already asked her for water. And told her the story of her life, a prophetic moment for her. Remembering back to John 1:45-51, the calling of Nathanael, Philip goes t...
