Woman Visits The “7 Wonders Of The World” In 13 Days After Being Diagnosed With Cancer

In the space of a month, Megan Sullivan fell 50 feet while climbing, got hit by a car and was diagnosed with skin cancer.

Two weeks later, she decided to travel to all Seven Wonders of the World in the span of 13 days. After 12 countries — 15 flights — 28,211 total miles traveled, she recently shared her journey on Bored Panda.

“It all started in Yosemite Valley where I had been training for three years to climb the Nose route on El Capitan. I was 2,000 feet up when I took a terrifying 50-foot fall. After a fall like that, I started to question everything… from why am I putting myself into these scary situations to what is driving me to seek out these ambitious climbs? What am I trying to prove to myself, or better yet, to the world?”

Day 2: Machu Picchu

“Like something out of a movie… a week later I was hit by a car while riding my Vespa and then diagnosed with skin cancer during a routine check-up. In three weeks time I was handed the trifecta of bad luck.”

NASA Has Shut Down Climate Change Deniers On Facebook

Comment sections are always fun places, especially when impassioned issues are involved. But usually, the back and forths of keyboard bashing quickly fade into the white noise of the Internet. So you know when NASA shows up in the comment section of a post about climate change to tell you you’re wrong, it’s probably time to call it a day.

NASA’s comments came after Bill Nye posted a story about himself asking a prominent climate change denier to put his money where his mouth is. Nye, “the science guy,” offered two $20,000 bets to leading climate change denier Marc Morano, during an interview Morano himself had requested, that this year will be in the top 10 hottest years on record and this decade will also be the hottest on record. Alas, Morana declined the wagers.

MTV Movie Awards, 4 Short And Sexy Dresses: Emily Ratajkowski, Bella Thorne, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez

The 2016 MTV Movie Awards takes place Saturday, April 9, in Los Angeles.
Nominees for Best Female Performance — Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina”); Anna Kendrick (“Pitch Perfect 2”); Charlize Theron (“Mad Max: Fury Road”); Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”); Jennifer Lawrence (“Joy”); Morena Baccarin (“Deadpool”) — are expected to walk the red carpet prior to the show, and all eyes will be on them and the outfits they choose to wear.
Traditionally the MTV Movie Awards is a place for young female stars to show off short and sexy fashions and most likely the 2016 Awards will be no exception.
2015 saw some great looks, including Emily Ratajkowski in a green Fausto Puglisi dress with an asymmetric bra top; Bella Thorne in a blue and green Peter Pilotto dress; Victoria Justice in Versace; Cara Delevigne in Reem Acra; and Jennifer Lopez in Versus Versace.
In 2014, Chrissy Teigen attended the awards wearing a sweet pouffe dress from Ulyana Sergeenko, and Greer Grammer wore a black dress with tulle skirt and illusion top trimmed with lace from Rhea Costa.
The red carpet at the 2012 Awards sizzled when Ciara appeared wearing a red dress with plunging neckline and high slit from Balmain, and, at the same show, Jessica Biel slayed in a white textured dress from Chanel.
In 2011, Emma Stone killed it wearing a layered look from Bottega Veneta that consisted of a black lace dress over an orange bodysuit. That same year, Selena Gomez also knocked it out of the park in a nude and white bodycon number with mint floral embroidery from Giambattista Valli.

Whitney Port slayed in 2010 in a nude and yellow chiffon textural strapless Yigal Azrouel mini dress. Meanwhile, Vanessa Hudgens wore a fun, flowy Jenny Packham white dress, and Cameron Diaz showed plenty of leg in a floral Diane Von Furstenberg watercolor print dress.

Panama Papers : Global reaction to the huge leak of offshore tax files

Charities and NGOs are using the leak as a chance to reiterate their views on tax avoidance. Here’s some quotes from Anders Dahlbeck, who has the title of tax justice adviser at ActionAid:

Checkout the video explainer on The Guardian

The latest in a string of tax revelations, this massive use of tax havens yet again demonstrates that the international tax system is broken. Those with the means to do so are able to break the rules on a massive scale, benefiting at the expense of ordinary citizens.

And it not just individuals who benefit from the global network of tax havens. Big companies can use some of the same offshore methods to reduce their tax bills in the UK, and in some of the poorest countries in the world.

The poorest people are hit hardest by corporate tax avoidance: the IMF estimates that developing countries lose out on $200bn a year in avoided corporate tax. Women and girls living in poverty pay the price as key public services like schools and hospitals are starved of funding.

The UK government should lead on reforming the global tax system to tackle tax avoidance around the world. The chancellor’s support for public country-by-country reporting is a good start, but we need a concrete plan as to how this will be implemented to ensure multinational companies start paying their fair share.
Among the 107 media organisations around the globe who are poring over the files is Fusion, the US news channel and website. Here’s their run-through of what they describe as an insight into the world of the “parallel universe for the ultra-rich and ultra-powerful”. It comes with an illustration (below) even more ambitious than those done by Süddeutsche Zeitung. And much more colourful.

American Army Officer Sikh Wins Ability to Serve with Beard, Turban

After years of cutting his hair and shaving his face, Singh was finally granted a temporary accommodation in December. Assistant Army Secretary Debra Wada ordered tests in March to determine whether Singh could safely wear a helmet and gas mask if he had a turban, uncut hair and a beard.

Thursday’s decision by the Army states that Singh will not have to reapply for accommodation in the future.
“In a political context where minorities are being marginalized and attacked routinely, it is critical that our nation’s largest institutions and employers — like the U.S. military — show the country that America embraces diversity,” Simran Jeet Singh, the Senior Religion Fellow for the Sikh Coalition, told The Huffington Post.

He added, though, that this decision is just one step toward ending the discriminatory policies regarding article of faith for service members.

In 2014, the U.S. military began taking steps to give individual troops greater freedom to wear turbans, head scarfs, yarmulkes and other religious clothing with their uniforms. A spokesman for the Sikh Coalition noted at the time that the religious accommodation would have to be approved each time a service member changed assignments and would default to the discretion of their commanders.

Just two day’s before the Army released its decision on Singh’s case, three other Sikh soldiers filed a lawsuit seeking similar accommodations from the Army. With Singh’s victory and the Army’s promise to “develop uniform standards,” there may be hope for others in a similar predicament.

April Fools’ Day : Google Apologizes For The Terrible Prank

Google apologized Friday for an April Fools’ Day prank that inadvertently caused some users to send animated GIFs of “Minion” characters in important emails.

“Well, it looks like we pranked ourselves this year,” Google software engineer Victor-bogdan Anchidin wrote in a blog post.
The company had attempted to mark the day with a temporary Gmail feature called Mic Drop. The feature added an orange “Send” button that would add to your message an animation of a Minion dropping a microphone and automatically archive any responses — giving you the illusion of the last word in any conversation you were participating in.

The button looked similar to the regular Send button, and they were right next to each other. It also replaced a “Send and Archive” button that some Gmail users enable.

One Gmail user claims to have lost a job because of the prank.

“Due to a bug, the Mic Drop feature inadvertently caused more headaches than laughs,” Anchidin also wrote. “We’re truly sorry.”
Whatever your thoughts on the joke, it’s a good reminder that Gmail — free as it might be — isn’t a public service. It’s a privately owned product subject to the impulses of corporate enterprise. And yes, many of us are accustomed to our entire lives revolving around it.
We’ve run into problems like this before. In December, Brazilian officials managed to shut down the Facebook-owned messaging service WhatsApp, cutting many people off from their primary means of communication.

At the time, cybersecurity expert Bruce Schneier raised a couple of important points to The Huffington Post.

“You should be concerned that Facebook can without any due process kick you off their network. You should be concerned that Gmail can lock you out of your email. You should be concerned that the U.S. government can spy on anyone,” Schneier said.

“All of these things can happen without knowledge or consent. We are giving these companies an enormous amount of power over our digital selves and therefore our lives,” he added.

The postal service is obligated to deliver your mail. Google is not obligated to provide you a free email service, nor an email service that’s free from bad April Fool’s Day pranks.

That’s a sobering thought, considering how many of us rely on it. As of February, it’s estimated that 1 billion people use Gmail worldwide.
