of “mother + daughter” project

Carra Sykes has definitely kept being creative. Her latest ongoing project is fun, witty and made us smile. Carra Sykes’ uncle repeatedly commenting on her mother wearing Carra’s clothing gave the young photographer the idea for her project ‘Mother + Daughter’. Carra Sykes’ mother likes wearing her daughter’s sorted out old band shirts. She thought it might be interesting to put her mother into some of her current clothing, pose both very similar for a mother/daughter comparison. ‘Mother + Daughter’ has kind of become a personal study of Carra and her mother’s relationship and physical traits. We are courious about what is still to come.

of justin bieber sleeping with girl in brasil

According to many bloggers, including Perez Hilton, the video titled ‘Justin Bieber sleeping with a girl in Brasil(sic)’ was filmed by a Brazilian woman known as Tati Neves.

The video shows Bieber sleeping peacefully, wrapped in a brown blanket on a large striped day bed.

While it is light outside, the young star appears fast asleep, perhaps exhausted by the previous evening’s activities.

Lying on the bed close beside him is his favourite red hat, while detritus including phones and clothing litter the ground.

Watch Justin Bieber sleeping with Girl in Brasil

She’s the Brazilian model who filmed Justin Bieber as he slept, before posting her video on the internet and causing a worldwide storm.

But Tatiana Neves Barbosa, known to friends as Tati, is no stranger to prompting an online sensation herself, as can be seen in racy pictures of the brunette beauty which she posted on her Facebook page.

The curvaceous star, from Rio de Janeiro, is seen flaunting her figure in a variety of skimpy outfits, including barely-there string bikinis – a favourite among Brazilian women.

of girl confesses boyfriend’s sushi tei birthday treat was not enough

A girl wrote a post on NUS Confessions saying that she was disappointed that her boyfriend brought her to Sushi Tei to celebrate her birthday.


My recent birthday celebration just made me really sad. He brought me to Sushi Tei and a gave me a sweet handmade card. Perhaps to some of you this may still be acceptable I’m not sure, but to me this was a complete disappointment. For a birthday celebration, Sushi Tei seriously? This would be the kind of restaurant I would casually meet up with friends at, and not some place I would patronise for a special occasion. A card and no present? Yes, a card is sweet, but another way of looking at it is: cheap.

of deborah cohan dances to beyonce’s hit “get me bodied” before surgery

Facing a double mastectomy with grace takes courage. Facing one with courage and joy is extraordinary.

But that’s exactly what Deborah Cohan did yesterday right before she went into surgery to have her breasts removed. Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mom of two, held a dance party with her medical team in the operating room of Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco.

This inspiring 6-minute-long video, posted on YouTube, shows Cohan busting some serious moves as she wiggles and twerks to Beyonce’s hit “Get Me Bodied.” Cohan requested that friends and family make videos of themselves dancing to Bey too so that she could watch them during her recovery.

of shanghai cinema accidentally uses photoshopped fanmade poster for thor 2

A movie theater in China mistakenly used a fan-made “Thor: The Dark World” poster to promote the film. The artwork in question shows Thor (Chris Hemsworth) clutching the villainous Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in a loving embrace; the actual poster shows Thor pulling the move on his girlfriend, Jane (Natalie Portman).

of report blames outage of singapore government websites on ‘routing issues’, ‘hardware failure’

Tech in Asia reports that “routing problems” from an unnamed Internet Service Provider (ISP), along with the hardware failure of an internet router, were the causes of the massive outage that took down over 19 government websites last Saturday. The report did not state if human error or hackers were involved. This is according to an incident report purportedly by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA).

An incident report (embedded below) purportedly by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) has determined that “routing problems” from an unnamed Internet Service Provider (ISP), along with the hardware failure of an internet router, were the causes of the massive outage that took down over 19 government websites last Saturday. The report did not state if human error or hackers were involved.

The document, uploaded by an unknown person, says that GDC1, an internet connection service used by many government websites, called for an urgent scheduled maintenance on November 1 from 1pm to 3pm to test “the implementation of a security solution for internet access”.

However, things started to go wrong during the test. When the internet connection was swung from its primary to secondary link, a “routing problem” was discovered on the side of the Internet Service Provider, which caused the swing to fail.

But when the internet connection was reverted back to the primary link, the internet router experienced a hardware failure. Even though a replacement router was eventually used, it had difficulty connecting to the ISP.

IDA-report-Service Outage-2Nov2013.pdf by Latisha Carr

The Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) said in a statement on Monday that maintenance on the infrastructure was carried out on Saturday from 1pm to 3pm, during which a fault was discovered.

This affected selected government websites.

IDA explained this was due to a combination of a routing issue and a hardware failure, resulting in a glitch in the system.

However, this was rectified by 5.20pm.

of avoid buying apple products from istudio

Ryu blogs about iStudio’s iPad Air and screen protector bundle.

I had reached the store around 8:45am, having checked iStudio’s Facebook page the night before for the launch timing (at 10am). There were no notices being posted about the iPad sales other than the launch timing being 10am.

There was no queue at 8:45am.

When the shutters lifted, we went straight in to the cashier and placed our orders.

The lady sales person at the cashier said, “our iPads are only sold as a bundle with a screen protector for an additional $39. Do you want the matte or glossy screen protector?”

We didn’t understand the first time, and thus wanted the lady to explain.

iStudio is refusing to sell the iPad Airs without an additional purchase of a no-brand screen protector for $39.

These are the no-brand screen protectors that they are forcing everyone to buy. The photos are taken at another retail store. They are priced at $24.90, more than ten dollars lower than what iStudio wanted to charge everyone for.

of this company wants women to buy these anti-rape shorts

AR Wear recently launched an Indiegogo campaign for a new clothing line that offers “wearable protection for when things go wrong”.

Rape is about as wrong as it gets. The only one responsible for a rape is the rapist and AR Wear will not solve the fundamental problem that rape exists in our world. Only by raising awareness and education, as well as bringing rapists to justice, can we all hope to eventually accomplish the goal of eliminating rape as a threat to both women and men. Meanwhile, as long as sexual predators continue to populate our world, AR Wear would like to provide products to women and girls that will offer better protection against some attempted rapes while the work of changing society’s rape culture moves forward.

Read more (Company Wants Women to Buy These Anti-Rape Shorts)

Our goal is to offer a wide range of wearable items, which will include assorted types and styles of underwear, running shorts, traveling shorts, etc., suitable for different situations and the styles of individual users. The challenge was to design products that can be worn comfortably while still being able to frustrate an assault effectively. The garments must be very difficult for someone else to remove by either force or stealth (in situations where the victim cannot resist because she has had too much to drink, was drugged, or is asleep).

They need to be resistant to pulling, tearing and cutting while being comfortable to wear during normal activities and, as in the case of underwear, fit smoothly under form-fitting outer clothing
