Versace Launches Sunglasses Contest

Versace on Wednesday launched a contest dedicated to its Greca Stars aviator sunglasses.
Until May 15, the brand’s fans will have the chance to win a pair by participating in the contest in two different ways.
They can either take a selfie with the Greca Stars in selected Versace boutiques worldwide and then post it online with the #VERSACESELFIE tag, or they can check the brand’s @VersaceHomeWW, @DVHomeMilan and @VersaceBoutiques to spot a selfie of Donatella Versace sporting the sunglasses.
The winners, who will be selected by the company, will receive a pair of the sunglasses, trimmed with Swarovski crystals and embellished with Versace’s signature Greek frieze.
This initiative follows last March’s launch of the 7 Bags for 7 Cities contest, which asked participants to help customize the Versace Palazzo Empire bag.

(Please) Like Me, The New Popularity Contest

Ms Rose, my cranky second grade teacher insisted we bring Saint Valentine cards for each member of our class — even Gregory Peas, the neighborhood bully. Co-mingled In the box of I Love Yous and Be Mines were a few platonic VD cards with matching envelopes. Why do the kid card making companies have so much Love in the box of options rather than Like offerings?

It was a risk turning away from the doily and glitter safety net where I could write a simple Happy Valentines Day, From K. I would have painstakingly glued and wrote and filled a garbage can up of the cast offs since I failed handwriting glass and still haven’t learned how to handle the Elmer’s without making a colossal sticky mess. I opted for the box of devotional notes noting the risk of having to send several dreamy messages out to folks I either had a crush on and didn’t really want them to know or even worse, send a lovey message to someone like GP. Yes, the Valentine’s conundrum nearly inspired a pretend sick day. I didn’t want to miss out of the cupcakes and the curiosity of who possibly Liked me. Please let it be Jay G from the cul-de-sac. Off to school I went with my box of love and like tucked into a decorated shoe box so I could collect my likes and loves too.

Today my friend Lennie said, KK you must think about asking people to Like you, your blogs, vignettes, articles, photos. If you want to LIFT more people you need to be Liked more, she says. Uh, OK how do I do that? We are meeting on this next Tuesday afternoon. An appointment to teach me the new trade we conduct in this era of Social Media. The exchange, the give and take of our new Virtual friendships. The “I like you so you like me” dance. I have few tools in my kit for this sort of Popularity contest. It’s intimidating to me really. I get it that I must step up my Like Me game for my business, for my purposeful meaningful work to be more exposed. This is how we reach out to our people and their people. I have been instructed on how to post words and photos and I do know how to Like and Friend strangers. I am not that Dark Aged. I do though admit, whole heartedly, to slipping into my Late Bloomer label that was slapped on my forehead in High School with the haven’t had my period yet and I am 16 and 3/4 to the didn’t get asked to the Prom (unless you count the feeble ask by my neighbor on Emerald Dr, Brian C., who I am certain my brother tossed a 10 er at to help encourage the invite I declined) or to most parties, always on the left side of cool. I am behind once again and I know it.

I am worried that I will worry about not being popular and knowing that I am not Liked. I am worried that I will be popular and I will feel overwhelmed with so many new folks. I worry that I will feel insecure one way or another. I prefer not knowing that people are deciding with a forefinger, hmmmm Yes I like her, her words and her world. To Be Liked or Not to Be, that is the question now isn’t? Is not knowing what I don’t know better? Isn’t the Valentine surprise of a real Like more meaningful and juicy than asking to be liked? Is this constant public declaration diluting our hearts desire for warmth and true kinship? Or just maybe, it is actually opening our hearts up more to others, with this unique version of interacting and declaring. The power our forefinger print has to bring us together with others and like them.

I will have my Lesson is how to Be Liked and do my best to keep a balance of my virtual Friends and my reality Friends. I am feeling a bit nervous and already exposed, so this is good. Growth is good. And new connections via SM can become real ones too.

After I started taking notes down for writing this vignette on this topic of Please Like Me, I paused and sent Lennie a note:

Thank you for Liking me, Len. I like you too.

Her reply:

How cute.

A private declaration that I am now making public.

Here’s to mixing the metaphors of Like.

Sweden Wins 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

VIENNA (AP) — Sweden won the 60th Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday, finishing ahead of Russia, whose contestant received some boos as the Ukraine conflict spilled over into the continent’s largest songfest.

Italy came in third. Australia, which was given a wild-card entry for this year due to its enthusiastic fan base and took part for the first time, was a dark horse, with many hoping candidate Guy Sebastian would triumph and secure a place for the country next year.

His failure to do so, placing fifth, means Australia will probably not be back next year.

The race between Russia and Sweden went back and forth for most of the evening as jurors from 40 countries cast their ballots, along a worldwide audience voting by phone and app.

The win by Mans Zelmerlow and his song “Heroes” marks a record seventh time that Sweden has taken top honors in the contest.

His win comes 41 years after that of Swedish group Abba, whose triumph in 1974 with “Waterloo” launched their world career.

About 200 million people watched on TV Saturday as the 27 finalists battled it out musically. Approximately 10,000 people followed the contest live in Vienna’s mammoth Stadthalle.

Last year’s win by bearded cross-dresser Conchita Wurst vaulted the contest into even greater worldwide popularity.

Wurst, who co-hosted the show, was critical of the scattered boos that met Russian contestant Polina Gagarina and her pacifist-themed song “A Million Voices,” calling the reaction “incomprehensible.”

Eurovision Song Contest To Be Signed For Deaf Viewers For First Time In History

Cue the signing!

In light of Conchita Wurst’s barrier-breaking win last year, the Eurovision Song Contest has decided to include sign language interpreters during broadcasts of the massive competition. A team of six interpreters will help translate the songs into International Sign, a broad-ranging version of non-spoken language that can reach a majority of deaf viewers.

The annual competition, now in its 60th year, attracts around 180 million viewers worldwide. An estimated 750,000 deaf or partially deaf people live in the European Union, according to the European Center for Modern Languages.

“We always say that music is a language which is understood by everyone,” a spokesperson for ORF TV, the Austrian network broadcasting the contest, said. “We felt that we should make this [a] reality, and to offer music to everyone, including deaf people.”

A preview video of the contest’s signers already looks pretty epic.

Earlier this year, a video of interpreter Tommy Krångh performing a song during a Swedish singing competition went viral, thanks to his gusto and spot-on signing.

Despite that signer’s enthusiasm, Kathrin Zechner, managing director ORF TV, said the Eurovision interpreters were there to supplement the contest, not steal the spotlight, the BBC reported.

“They are supporting and interpreting for the artist and the viewers,” she said. “They are stars but they are not ego-centric; they’re spreading the emotion.”

The finals of the Eurovision Song Contest will be broadcast on May 23. Nine countries — Austria, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Slovenia — will broadcast the sign language translations, which will also be viewable online.

10 Jaw-Dropping Photos From The 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

The entries for the 2015 National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest are in, and the photographs are as stunning as ever. The annual contest asks photographers from all around world to submit photos in four categories: Travel portraits, outdoor scenes, sense of place, and spontaneous moments.

Photographers are allowed to submit as many photos as they’d like for $ 15 apiece, with no cap on the number one person can enter. The contest, which ends June 30, is still open for entries. Winners will receive a grand prize of an 8-day National Geographic Photo Expedition to Costa Rica and the Panama Canal for two.

Scroll below to see some of the most beautiful photographs submitted to the contest so far:

1. Lighting Up The Night

“I was out in the Arches National Park to take night pictures, but the clouds moved in. I waited for about two hours in the car and finally the sky cleared and I got this image.”

2. Ocean World

4. Jal Mahal During Sunrise
ravikanth kurma
“Beautiful view of Jal Mahal during sunrise. I wanted to capture the palace and other two water structures also in the frame. Thats why I have used an ultra wide angle lens to capture this frame. Not many tourists visit the place at dawn, so the location is bit peaceful early in the morning. And locals visit the lake in the morning and feed the pigeons and fish in pond. These pigeons keeps flying across the lake once in a while, which I used to fill my frame.”

5. Colors Of Earth
maja bednas
“People in Dharavi slum in Mumbai work hard, producing mostly recycled articles and pottery. The posture of these two women at the local pottery store, taking a short break for conversation, [expresses] dignity, while the colors of their saris perfectly blend with the scenery.”

6. Camping On The Diving Board
matthew saville
“As technology shrinks the world around us, it becomes more and more difficult to find ourselves truly lost in the outdoors. This makes those particular moments and scenes that much more special. Getting to the Diving Board was quite a challenge, as there is no official trail. For anybody who is prepared, careful, and respectful of nature, the reward is one of the most breathtaking views in all of Yosemite, in my opinion.”
Photo and caption by Matthew Saville/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

7. When Conditions Are Right
lee scott
“Giant waves converge and jump together along the Na Pali coast of Kauai. An early season northwest swell and the position of the autumn sun made this shot possible, but what really makes it special to me is the bird flying in the corner of the frame. This little moment of life adds balance to the image and reminds me that the mundane often [makes] the spectacular.”
Photo and caption by Lee Scott/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

8. Tribal Makeup Artist
s ram
“Taken at a Karo Village in the Omo Valley of Ethiopia. The Karo are famous for their body-paint culture and skill. Away from the crowded village square, I found this ‘makeup artist’ focused on applying makeup on a young woman. Using a Q-tip as a brush he used a Georges Seurat-like pointillism technique! The calm, focused look of the artist is contrasted by the nervous, perspiring client — perhaps unsure about the results (or my camera).”
Photo and caption by S. Ram/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

9. Last Light on Godafoss, Iceland
ed graham
“I had a tripod set up on Godafoss waterfall in Iceland last month. I used a 10 stop ND filter to capture the movement of the water as the sun set in the distance.”
Photo and caption by Ed Graham/National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest

10. White Rhinos
stefane berube
“The night before this photo, we tried all day to get a good photo of the endangered white rhino. Skulking through the grass, carefully trying to stay 30 feet away to be safe, didn’t provide me the photo I was hoping for. In the morning, however, I woke up to all three rhinos grazing in front of me.”

Watch Disney’s Gaston Lose Arm Wrestling Contest To Girl Half His Size

With his brawny physique and ruthless attitude, you’d think there would be no way Gaston would lose a contest of strength.

Well this video uploaded to YouTube shows otherwise. Watch an 11-year-old girl take him on in an arm wrestling contest and wipe the floor with him. Sure, she pulls a fast one at the 1:14 mark but we say her victory stands.

We’d have thought his last encounter with a witty young girl, would have taught him a lesson or two.
