Carey Mulligan Is Pretty In Pink on Vogue Australia’s January Cover

After revealing a total overhaul of the entire magazine back in September, Vogue Australia has been powering through with newfound confidence. After a gorgeous Margot Robbie cover for December, Aussie Vogue‘s cover for January is just as beautiful. Fresh from the cover of UK Harper’s Bazaar, Carey Mulligan is the title’s first cover girl of 2018, taking to the rooftops of New York City for a rather cinematic cover shoot. The actress was photographed by Emma Summerton wearing a show-stopping Giambattista Valli gown, styled by Christine Centenera.

Members of our forums were instant fans. “LOOOOOOOVE this! THAT is what I want to see in Vogue around the world: the haute couture, the drama, the over-the-top clothes/hair and makeup and pure glamour,” declared Bertrando3.

“Ooooo lovely!” sighed Lucien122.

“Not sure why, but I like this a lot. The focus is just on her and the dress,” admired forum member Benn98.

Also quick to show the cover some love was Miss Dalloway: “She rarely does it for me in print, but this cover is wonderful.”

“I’ve never been an admirer of full-length cover images but this cover here is simply beautiful. Vogue Australia didn’t need a redesign but I do adore the look of this. The cover images feels so… fashion and celebratory that I cannot help but to love it. Nice one, Vogue Australia!” vogue28 applauded.

SallyAlbright felt the same way. “Love this, dramatic and cool cover. I actually think Carey is quite underrated because she keeps her personal life so quiet. She’s definitely one of the most talented actresses in her age group, and seems to be very normal and cool as well,” she voiced.

City-Dwelling Insects Are Tougher Than Their Rural Counterparts

City-Dwelling Insects Are Tougher Than Their Rural Counterparts

It is commonly believed that only the few with the thickest skin can survive life in the big city. When it comes to humans that claim is debatable. However, when it comes to insects, science has proven that urban-dwelling insects are tougher than their rural counterparts. A recent study conducted in New York City has demonstrated how insects living in cities are more resilient to harsh weather conditions than insects living in more natural environments. The study focused on insect populations that existed in New York City before and after Hurricane Sandy struck New York City.

An assistant professor of biology at Rutgers, Amy Savage, is studying the effects that harsh weather conditions have on insect populations dwelling within cities. Savage’s research will help conservation experts better predict how harsh weather conditions will affect insect populations in the future. Savage’s study focused solely on a hurricane’s impact on insect populations.

Savage started her study in 2012 in response to the devastation caused by hurricane Sandy. Savage analyzed insect populations that existed in New York City before and after the storm. Savage focused on two different common insect habitats in all big cities. These habitats were local parks and roadway medians. Both of these locations contain a diverse amount of insect life.

Before the hurricane, insect diversity was greater in parks than it was in roadway medians. However, after the storm subsided, the opposite was the case, as both medians and parks contained a comparable degree of insect diversity. Park dwelling insect populations suffered far more than road median insect populations.This finding supports the hypothesis that city-dwelling insects are more resilient to harsh weather than urban insects.

Since insect life is harsh on roadway medians they should be better adapted to survive harsh conditions than park-dwelling insects. Medians do not offer insects much in the way of resources, such as food and mating opportunities, and avoiding death has to be learned. City parks, on the other hand, offer insects an abundance of resources. An insect’s natural environment is not much different than a park environment, therefore park-dwelling insects have not been forced to adapt to harsh conditions to the same degree as insects dwelling on roadway medians.

Do you believe that the researchers could accurately account for the discrepancies in population differences between large parks and smaller roadway medians?

Video: The Last Hill (Until the Next One)

This fantastic short documentary comes our way courtesy of the folks at Patagonia, and it follows a team of skiers and snowboarders who set out from Reno, Nevada on bicycles. Carrying their skies and other gear with them, they set out for Mt. Whitney, exploring some epic backcountry along the way. The only problem is, they are definitely better skiers and snowboarders than they are cyclists.

Seal walks back accusation that Oprah knew of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct, calls out 'hypocritical' Hollywood

seal and oprah winfrey

  • In a Facebook video on Thursday, singer Seal walked back his apparent accusation that Oprah knew of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct and was “part of the problem for decades.”
  • Seal said that an Instagram meme he reposted on Wednesday was “not an attack on Oprah,” but intended instead as a commentary on the “hypocritical” nature of Hollywood. 

 

Seal clarified his intentions in posting a meme on Instagram Wednesday that appeared to accuse Oprah of being aware of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct and “being part of the problem for decades.”

“What I reposted was not an attack on Oprah at all. She just happened to be photographed with the pig in the picture,” Seal said in a Facebook video on Thursday. “No, what I reposted was commentary on the hypocritical and double-standard nature and behavior of Hollywood.”

In the caption to his Instagram post on Wednesday, which featured pictures of Oprah with Weinstein, Seal wrote, “Oh I forgot, that’s right…..you’d heard the rumours but you had no idea he was actually serially assaulting young stary-eyed [sic] actresses who in turn had no idea what they were getting into. My bad. #SanctimoniousHollywood.” 

The 54-year-old singer went on to discuss in his Facebook video how Hollywood’s alleged abusers have not faced “real punishment.”

“For those of us who support the Me Too movement, not one of the women who have been sexually abused, not one of the women who have come forward has received any real justice whatsoever,” Seal said. “Losing your job because you either A) raped, B) sexually abused, or even sexually harassed a woman is not real punishment.”

Seal also called out Fox News commenter Stacey Dash, who retweeted an article about Seal’s Instagram post. 

Stacey Dash, keep my name out of your mouth,” he said. “Do not retweet or re-quote anything I said in order to reinforce your self-hating agenda.”
