Puerto Rican Supermodel, 25, Said To Have ‘Planet’s Most Perfect Face’ | Repeating Islands

perfection

The Puerto Rico-born woman is only 25, but the international buzz about her just keeps getting louder, and shows no sign of abating, Latino Fox News reports.

Joan Smalls Rodriguez, born and raised in Hatillo, Puerto Rico, is the January cover of Elle Magazine, which has dubbed her no less than “the planet’s most perfect face.”

By putting Smalls Rodriguez on its cover, Elle shifted from the usual movie star in favor of a supermodel.

The magazine said Smalls Rodriguez possesses a “flawless, unequivocal beauty.”

London Underground Tube Diary – Going Underground’s Blog

As usual the requirements are simple:

1) Willingness to take trousers off on the Tube

2) Ablility to keep a straight face about it

Full details are on the Facebook page but in a nutshell the plan is to turn up at an allocated spot in Chinatown at 3pm where you will be divided into groups. The aim is to then travel from Leicester Square Tube and go around another seven zone one stops as nonchalantly & casually as possible with no trousers on.

As Rammi one of the organisers says \”You can wear fun underwear if you like, but nothing that screams out, “I wore this because I’m doing a silly stunt.” Wear two pairs of underwear if it makes you feel more comfortable. Don\’t wear anything overly close-fitting (so no thongs, banana hammocks or mankinis) or kilts without anything underneath. We don\’t want people to be disgusted.

 

We want this event to be fun and safe for everyone, so anybody found to be removing more than their trousers will be kicked off the train and reported to the British Transport Police and station authorities. .\”

Nathan Fox stirs up creativity for SVA’s Subway Poster series – The Fox Is Black

I’ve been a long time fan of Nathan Fox, a New York based illustrator and chair/founder of the MFA Visual Narrative Department, who has a penchant for drawing over-the-top work that will blow your mind. Recently he created some amazing work for SVA’s Subway Poster series and I’m mildly obsessed with them.

U.S. Sign Language and Deaf Communication | Pushing Limits

Following the controversy over the botched sign language “interpretation” at December’s memorial service for Nelson Mandela, Pushing Limits probes into what makes a good sign language professional service in this country.

We are seeing more and more deaf interpretation in this country with hardly a word of complaint or dissatisfaction.  What are the latest trends and dynamics?

We take up this and other topics related

Buffy Sainte-Marie: Starwalker Videos lyrics

Starwalker he’s a friend of mine

You’ve seen him looking fine

He’s a straight talker, he’s a Starwalker

Don’t drink no wine

Ay way hey o heya

Wolf Rider shes a friend of your’s

You’ve seen her opening doors,

She’s a history turner, she’s a sweetgrass burner

And a dog soldier

Ay hey way hey way heya

Lightning Woman, Thunderchild

Star soldiers one and all oh

Sisters, Brothers all together

Aim straight, Stand tall

Starwalker is a friend of mine

You’ve seen him looking fine

He’s a straight talker, he’s a Starwalker

Don’t drink no wine

Ah way hey o hey…

Aya hey hey heyo way hey heyo

ay hey hey heya

Hey way hey way heya

Heya wey yoh

Ay hey way hey way heya
