What if you could influence federal policy?  Well, thanks to Obama's Memorandum on Transparency and Open Government , he is lending an ear. The program has been in effect since May, when Americans were given the chance to brainstorm recommendations for creating an ... Read More
Fireworks are in store this July and it's not just to celebrate the 4th! On July 9th, a new line of clothing designed by Beth Ditto of The Gossip fame is hitting Evans chain stores throughout Britain. And let me tell you, these '80s inspired threads are something to shout about. The line is bold, bright, sequined, studded, and hot. These clothes make a statement, and they're designed specifically for women sizes 14-32. Finally, an alternative to Topshop ... Read More

I not only had the cool opportunity to attend the Babelgum Online Film Festival Awards where Brooklyn's own Christina Voros won the Spike Lee Award for her documentary short The Ladies, I also got an awesome chance to have a Q and A session with her. She discusses her start in film, how hard it is to become an established female filmmaker, and the film's two stars and sisters, Vali and Mimi (pictured below).

 Nerve.com has gone where no Top 20 list has gone before. The editors have recently compiled a list of 'The Twenty Sexiest Ugly People' they could conjure up from their collective pop culture memories. Are you thinking who they're thinking? Marilyn Manson? Woody Allen? Courtney Love? Who would you add to the list and who's misunderstood? Okay, you're thinking 'this is just mean,' but trust us, the list is more honest and funny than critical. Tell me ... Read More

                In my home state of North Carolina, in the city of Greensboro,  young girls are being paid $1 a day for every day that they go without being pregnant. Normally I wouldn't agree with this type of monetary reward (I was never one of the lucky kids that got paid for stellar report cards growing up; my family went out for Mexican instead) but this program, supported by ...

We're not saying it's good. We're just saying you have to watch it: Maybe the tightness of the unitard squeezed the talent of right out of his cute butt? Share your own reviews of his performance here, a la Simon Cowell. ~Hannah Video courtesy of youtube.com ... Read More
             Unfortunately this isn't a magic trick.  These women are victims gone for good. According to the Toronto Star , the term 'missing woman' refers to an estimated group of 100 million women who 'should be alive but are not, because of unequal access to medical care, food and social services.' Siwan Anderson, an economics professor at the University of British Columbia, has made it her mission to look for the ... Read More
