17 hours 7 min ago

Celebrities tripping on stage at fancy shindigs are basically the only reason to watch award shows like the Screen Actors Guild Awards — that, and Meryl Streep

Luckily, Naomi Watts saved the night by stumbling on Emma Stone's dress while accepting the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award for Birdman, giving the world an amazing photo opportunity

'Girls' Season 4, episode 3 recap: 'We just found our own Lindsay Lohan'

17 hours 23 min ago

Hannah Horvath is the modern antiheroine. She is selfish, narcissistic and insensitive. She displays self-absorption more often than self-awareness. She is frequently (and often bafflingly) unlikeable. Yet, I found myself rooting for Hannah in episode 3, "Female Author," and relishing her epic takedown of all those sneering Iowa classmates.

And what a takedown it is.

See also: 'Girls' Season 4, episode 2 recap: Sleepless (and sex acts) in Iowa

For someone who seems to lacks the capacity for introspection, Hannah is able to dole out searing criticisms of her classmates with aplomb:

  • Jeffrey, the "rich whiny white guy" who "probably only [has] one ball"

  • Chester, the "tragically hip gayasian" whose "whole story is a winky eye emoji followed by a poop emoji"

  • Chandra, whose "exotic name" makes her feel entitled to be "the first and foremost authority on third-world issues here in Iowa"

  • Priya, who keeps "writing about prisons in the South"

  • Logan, the "bad-mood Mille"

  • D. August, the program's "golden boy" whose "patron saint of the streets thing is bullsh*t" Read more...

Super Snow Storm Panic: Hoarding food becomes a winter sport

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

Nearly every blockbuster disaster film shows us how New York City handles the apocalypse, but we rarely get to see what New Yorkers are really up to on the ground as disaster approaches. Well, now we know, thanks so the panic-stricken Twitter messages from hundreds of people in the tri-state area anticipating a major snow storm

The bottom line: Hoarding is in

Like most panic buying, it started as a trickle, just after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's dramatic televised speech during which he described the upcoming snow storm as "one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city." Read more...

Here's why the blizzard forecast just got so much worse

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

Less than two days ago, the weather forecast from Philadelphia to Maine featured a chance of a few snow flurries from Monday into Wednesday. There was no mention of a historic blizzard. Not even a snowstorm. Yet on Sunday afternoon, there was New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warning residents of "one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city," and officials up and down the coast echoing the same message in other cities

So, what changed, and why is the forecast so dire? And are officials who are warning of a historic storm overdoing it?

Courageous dog helps cat from the deadly clutches of a fast-food cup

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

It's always nice to see dogs and cats finally put aside their differences — at least for a moment.

In the video, above, a brave dog swoops in to save a helpless kitty, who is waging war against one of cat-kind's sworn enemies: a red fast-food cup.

This is further proof that dogs really are better than cats.

The weak euro is good for something: A European vacation

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

Currency exchange rates have never made a European getaway look so good — at least not since more than a decade ago.

The value of the dollar against the euro is at its highest in years. At about $1.12 to 1 euro on Jan. 25, it's the most favorable exchange rate for the American currency since 2003. In the years since, the relative value of the euro has varied between $1.26 and $1.60.

In a Mashable survey conducted by SurveyMonkey, 53% of U.S. respondents said they would travel more if they had more disposable income. A weaker euro won't increase anyone's take-home pay, but it will stretch a vacationing American's dollar further. When the euro was valued at $1.40 — which was as recently as May — $50 would get you about €36. At $1.12, $50 is worth 45 euros. Read more...

Sundance Review: 'Going Clear' is a great Scientology explainer, but not much new

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

PARK CITY, Utah — It’s one thing to read former Scientology members’ scattershot tales of abuse, intimidation and mind-control, and quite another to see them pour out their hearts onscreen

That's the principle offering from Going Clear: The Prison of Belief, Alex Gibney’s exquisitely well-constructed documentary that will pack a wallop for those unfamiliar with the sordid tale, but do little to enlighten those who know it well.

How to visit the locations from this year's Oscar-nominated films

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

The Pacific Crest Trail is more than a backdrop in the Oscar-nominated Reese Witherspoon film Wild— it drives the plot, serves both as antagonist and companion, and makes the story what it is.

That kind of focus on a destination is something tourism boards crave.

More than any advertisement or brochure, a feature film can highlight a destination while simultaneously tapping into travelers' imaginations. Among this year's Oscar contenders, several films featured destinations as more than background.

"You have an emotional connection to a movie," Brian Ek, travel editor at Priceline, told Mashable. "Actually going to places where the movies were filmed — it's another way to deepen the connection to the picture and really satisfy the need to get closer to it." Read more...

Tweak your startup hiring strategy: More builders, fewer movers

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

This article is part of DBA, a new series on Mashable about running a business that features insights from leaders in entrepreneurship, venture capital and management.

My wife is a doctor, and she’s often confused by how I do my job. As a physician, her daily activities are founded on well-researched strategies and highly tested procedures, many of which have been around for decades (and some, for centuries). In medicine, you want as much experience and routine as possible –- if I were to need surgery, I’d want my surgeon operating under the most tried and true methods.

But as an entrepreneur, your daily routine is going to be completely different and often built around the question, “What are the most important things that I need to do today?” And it won’t just be you asking that question — you’ll want your team members to be comfortable with the lack of structure too or, even better, people who thrive on it: The kind of people who might not know exactly what they’re going to do that day when they wake up, but are committed to your vision.

Catchy SOTU remix turns Obama into Commander-in-Beats

The President is dropping unemployment rates — and beats.

The Gregory Brothers hilariously remixed President Barack Obama's 2015 State of the Union Address to an auto-tuned, techno beat.

Clearly this proves that the 2016 Presidential election debate should be a rap battle.

America's 12-week maternity policy has nothing to do with families

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

Seconds after my daughter was born a nurse placed her tiny pulsing body on my chest. The sight captivated me, and as she lay there I thought of nothing else but the marvel of her new life.

In the days that followed, the complicated and busy world came into view again, and I began to hear the inevitable ticking of time. In 12 weeks, I would somehow have to find the courage to ignore the hormones that primed my body and mind for complete devotion. I would have to leave this helpless being, my first child, and return to work.

I’d taken for granted that 12 weeks of leave is a standard benchmark, thanks to the Family and Medical Leave Act, which requires companies of a certain size to give employees that much unpaid leave in the event of childbirth or adoption. But I couldn’t explain how we arrived at that number. Surely it must be based on the recommendations of child development experts, or reflect the difficulty of caring for a three-month-old baby, or even take into consideration the physical recovery after childbirth.

Obama to seek wilderness designation for Alaska refuge

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Barack Obama is boosting protection of Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and will ask Congress to designate more than 12 million acres as a wilderness area, including its potentially oil-rich Coastal Plain.

The designation would seal off the area in Alaska's northeast corner from oil exploration, and give it the highest degree of federal protection available to public lands. Obama and the Interior Department announced the effort on Sunday.

NYC Mayor de Blasio: Expect 'one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city'

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

NEW YORK — Mayor Bill de Blasio warned residents on Sunday afternoon that New York City is facing "one of the largest snowstorms in the history of this city."

"Don't underestimate this storm," de Blasio said, adding that those in the tri-state area could "easily" expect between 2 and 3 feet of snow. "Assume that you don't want to be out in this storm. Stay off the roads. Make plans to travel another day and try with everything you have to avoid being in the middle of this storm."

De Blasio said there will be 500 salt spreaders out in New York City ahead of the snowfall, as well as 1,500 snow plows deployed when at least 2 inches have accumulated on the ground. The city has already sent out pothole crews to repair streets in anticipation of the storm. Read more...

Superfans made a bike-powered Star Destroyer and gave it away on Craigslist

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

Cost of an impressive battleship? Zero dollars. Cost of overthrowing the galaxy? Priceless.

Star Wars fans in Portland, Oregon, gave away their handmade, bike-powered Imperial Star Destroyer for absolutely nothing on Craigslist. No credits. No Nova crystals. Nothing.

The 22-foot-long, 8-foot-wide "ship" was created to be a parade float for Portland's Pedalpalooza "Star Wars vsStar Trek" bike-riding event, according to the ad. However, the owners were forced to to give it up due to a lack of space.

"The ship itself is a PVC frame, re-enforced in certain areas with electrical conduit. The coverings are grey-painted weather-resistant coroplast," the ad said. "The craft is designed to split into two sections using convenient screw-joints for easier storage." Read more...

Greece's anti-bailout Syriza party wins election

Sunday Jan 25th 2015

ATHENS, Greece — The anti-bailout Syriza party won a clear victory in austerity-weary Greece's national election on Sunday, according to projections by state-run TV's exit poll.

But it was uncertain whether the radical left-wing party, led by 40-year-old Alexis Tsipras, had won by a big enough margin over Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' incumbent conservative New Democracy party to govern alone. For that, they need a minimum 151 of parliament's 300 seats.

See also: The dirty, dangerous job that powers Greece

The Interior Ministry said that its projections, based on early returns, show Syriza gaining 150 seats. But it added that the margin of error meant that the final number could be 149 to 151, and a final result could not emerge until all votes have been counted. Read more...
