Male Models Tell All: Dry Shampoo, Tanning Towels, Manicures… And Concealer

When male model and actor Shaun Ross recently revealed his skincare secrets, it got us wondering what other tricks could we steal from the guys we see on the runway, in magazine ads and during TV commercial breaks. (Ross’ homemade table salt scrub recipe and sunscreen advice are still blowing our minds.)

Someone had to do the tough work, so we spent a day with three male models fromSoul Artist Management to find out exactly what it takes to maintain their handsome faces and bodies.

Simple equality

 

It amazes me how people are turning the death of the Defense of Marriage Act into a religious debate (6-27, A1, “Closer to equal”). I am not asking for you or your God’s approval, forgiveness or acceptance. I don’t want or need you or your God’s tolerance.

I’m not asking you to advocate for me to go to heaven. I can advocate for myself.

I work every day. I pay taxes. I support charity. Im a good neighbor. I just want the same rights you have as a human being. Rights given to you by other human beings. Just give me what you got.

Gay? Conservative? High IQ? Your Facebook likes can reveal traits – Cosmic Log

When you click a “like” button on Facebook, you could be telling the world whether you’re gay or straight, liberal or conservative, intelligent or not so much — even if you don’t intend to. That’s what researchers found when they ran tens of thousands of Facebook profiles and questionnaires through a computer algorithm to find the obvious as well as not-so-obvious connections.

The results were published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and you can sample the method for yourself at a website called YouAreWhatYouLike.com.

“The main message of the paper is that whether they like it or not, people do communicate their individual traits in their online behavior,” said lead author Michal Kosinski, operations director at the University of Cambridge’s Psychometrics Center.


 

Some of the correlations are pretty obvious: For example, If you’re a fan of the “I’m Proud to Be a Christian” Facebook page, it’s a pretty safe bet that you’re a Christian. But others are hard to explain: Why is it that liking the “Curly Fries” page is associated with having a high IQ? Why does the computer model put “Sometimes I Just Lay in Bed and Think About Life” in the category for homosexual females, while “Thinking of Something and Laughing Alone” is linked to heterosexual females?

“These little patterns are really not perceptible to humans,” Kosinski said. Sometimes, it takes a computer.

How to use iTunes 11’s new features (and bring back the old iTunes look) – GadgetBox on NBCNews.com

Apple released its newest version of iTunes, and it’s a complete overhaul to the entire program. As you’d expect, that means there are a few cool (somewhat) hidden features. Here are some we’ve found especially helpful.

 

With any new iteration of software you’re bound to have a bit of a learning curve as you get used to it. iTunes  11 is no different, and the first thing you’re greeted to when you launch it is a completely different main screen. The big news with iTunes 11 is the new interface, but hidden beneath that is some pretty cool functionality you might not notice at first glance.

Yes, you can get the old iTunes look back (sidebar and all)
Let’s start with what we’re guessing is most people’s main gripe: it looks different. It’s true, it does, and if you’re not a fan of browsing your music library with giant covers, and navigating drop-down menus, iTunes 11 is a bit annoying. The good news? You can get the old look back:
