Facebook wants to let users share music and video, in talks with Spotify and Netflix

URGENT: Save the life of Kurdish minority Habibollah Latifi!

Habibollah Latifi is a 29-year-old university student from Kurdistan who has been sentenced to death on charge of Moharebeh (enmity with God). He is currently imprisoned at the Sanandaj Prison. Several sources have reported that Latifi has suffered from various illnesses, including an intestinal infection, heart problems, and kidney failure. The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran has also noted that it believes the same intelligence-security forces are moving towards large scale politically motivated executions. Another young Kurdish man, Shirkoo Moarefi, also faces the risk of execution. In the past week, some 18 people have been executed. The frequency and number of executions in Iran has become increasingly of grave concern for activists.

Extreme camping and rock climbing photographs by Gordon Wiltsie

Hanging precariously in tents off a 4,000ft vertical cliff face wouldn’t be most people’s idea of the perfect camping trip. But these daredevils scale cliffs and pitch their tents thousands of feet up.

This will introduce you to a color you’ve probably never seen before.

True “Cyan”. Usually most people find it an ugly color, or just an ordinary light blue. BUT! Computers and TVs dilute the actual appearance of cyan and when you see it, its fucking awesome.

SO! Stare at the white dot for 2 minutes. Just as long as you can. The circle will get fuzzy and youll start to see a ring forming. Back your head up slowly and look around the edge of the circle.

Craziest, best blue Ive ever seen.

Megan Fox for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics 2011

Here’s a brand spankin’ new beauty video with the face of Armani underwear and cosmetics, Megan Fox. “She embodies the spirit of the women of today: free, confident and seductive,” noted the brand.

YouTube personality Will Norton, who was ejected from his Hummer during Sunday’s Joplin Tornado, was found dead.

His aunt confirmed the news last night; a news conference is scheduled for later.

According to reports, the 18-year-old was on his way home with his father Mark after receiving his high school diploma, when the tornado touched down in Joplin. They were a short distance from their house when the twister caught up with the car, causing it to flip it over. Mark remains hospitalized.

The Joplin Tornado death toll now stands at 139, bringing the total number of tornado-related deaths in 2011 to 520.

Every 45 seconds, a child dies from malaria — which is easily prevented through the use of an insecticide-treated net. A net costs just $10 to purchase, deliver, and educate the recipient on its proper use.

Send a net. Save a Life. Together we can cover a continent.
