You've seen the "Uncle Drew" commercials. But are you ready for the movie? Because that's about to happen. So continues the unlikely rise of a concept that was never even intended to be a broadcast ad in the first place. SEE ALSO: My president was a hooper "Uncle Drew," for the uninitiated, is the advertising alter ego of Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving. Irving dons old clothes and heaps on tons of makeup to transform into Uncle Drew, an old geezer who breaks ankles and dunks on flummoxed pickup hoopers at the park. (Oh, and Uncle Drew wants you to drink Pepsi.) Uncle Drew made his debut back in May 2012, when a five-minute short film of Irving-dressed-as-Drew became an immediate online sensation. In that original spot, Drew shows up at an outdoor basketball court and dominates pickup players who seem to think they are actually being schooled by an old man, not an NBA star. Read more...

If the same rules apply, then does this mean we ourselves are existing as a wave of possibilities with regards to the direction we take in our lives? After all, we are all made up of this “matter.” Are there other versions of our life playing out in some type of alternate reality? Whatcollapses” us onto our choice of paths from a wave of potentials? Is there an observer that does this? Is there someone watching us? Is it our consciousness that is observing ourselves, and is that dictating the makeup of our reality? So many questions to be asked, and so few answers to be found. One thing that resonates with me is the idea that quantum physics and other discoveries in various fields are simply a pre-curser to ancient knowledge. A step behind, in the discovery of what was already known in our ancient world. “Broadly speaking, although there are some differences, I think Buddhist philosophy and Quantum Mechanics can shake hands on their view of the world.

In today's times, it's hard to find an internet comment exchange that doesn't immediately resort to politics, negativity or just downright nastiness. Pleasant comments are extremely rare, but Youtube user Hot Dad (!!) has found a needle in the haystack. Since we need to believe that people on the internet aren't all bad, he created this song entirely out of a Facebook comment conversation between the very complimentary Thomas Bagels and the always kind Randolph Cotter about a fantastic picture of a happy hedgehog. So pure, so innocent. We need more of this in the world.

Beauty blenders are having a moment right now. But some sponges can prove far too absorbent when you're putting on your foundation. Beauty vlogger Laila Tahri thinks she's found the perfect solution for that and it comes in the form of a condom. Yep, a condom. SEE ALSO: Unicorn eyeliner is a real beauty trend... and it's pretty magical In her tutorial, Tahri tears open the wrapper before washing the condom, which she says is important because it has "a lot of this stuff on it". Then Tahri puts her beauty blender inside it and places some foundation on the condom. Then, she begins dabbing dots of foundation on her face with the condom and using it to blend her makeup. "It blended out my foundation so beautifully!" says Tahri. Err, we'll take your word for it. Read more... More about Vlogger , Condoms , Beauty Trend , Beauty Product , and Beauty

Then there were the moments she spent with Bono, who clutched her hand during the "I Am the Walrus" scene on the trippy Magic Bus ride to "The Headquarters of the League of Spiritual Deliverance." "I am such a U2 fan and they knew it, so they scheduled me every day in makeup with Bono," Fuchs said. "So I'd sit next to him. And the first few days, I literally, it was embarrassing because I could not form a sentence. I just completely could not speak and I was trying to look cool and be cool and trying to relate and not act like the crazed fan. And it was really hard. I think he knew that and took pity on me. By the fifth or sixth day, I loosened up and we started talking." They discussed the merits of No Direction Home , Martin Scorsese's 2005 documentary on Bob Dylan, and when musicians back in the day had something to say. "Bono was really fixated on that point and was like, 'That's the problem with a lot of pop music today.

Last year left everyone wanting brows to rival those of Cara Delevingne and Lily Collins, with many women wondering how to achieve that extra-natural fullness without sacrificing half an hour every morning. The answer may exist in "micro-blading", a technique that uses a super fine micro-blade to etch lines into the skin that flow in the same direction as your own hairs. The results can last for up to 18 months, which beats the duration of other semi-permanent hacks, such as the Wunderbrow gel . Permanent makeup artist extraordinaire, Tracie Giles, is an expert when it comes to brow grooming, with over 25 years of professional experience and a collection of premier spas all over London. Technicians are recruited globally to work in her Knightsbridge clinic, which offers the treatment for up to £595. Video of Angel Studio use mircoblading to create the perfect eyebrows Micro-blading consultation with Tracie Giles can be booked here Bolder make-up Make-up bags benefit from a complete shake-up every once in a while and there's no better time than the present.

I like Uber, but a lot of the code is a pricing black box designed to maximize the value of Uber, not a free auction market. There are still questions of fairness to e.g. the disabled , blacks . You can use big data to understand customers better and offer them more and better choices, or selectively charge people more . Build a true 2-way market where drivers can offer services and riders can bid for them transparently, maybe even based on a blockchain ledger, and that's a true libertarian solution. If you work on free software , you are a true libertarian and a scholar and I salute you. Until then, you're paying lip service to freedom while creating a new layer of code to regulate behavior, while maximizing your own rent-seeking. It can sometimes look like tech hubris, liberty for me, the nerd, and not for thee, the unwashed mashes. Since we've expanded the scope to theories of everything, what really separates left and right? Some interrelation between interests, learned values, psychological makeup: How you feel about people making good choices on their own; How you feel about authorities coming up with good policies and market designs, avoiding deadweight losses; How you feel about markets, whether they are generally fair or some participants accumulate one-sided market power; whether externalities and market failures are important and common, relative to deadweight losses from interventions that interfere with markets like taxes, regs; In particular whether labor market outcomes for individuals are fair; whether people generally get what they deserve in the market economy, or whether the distribution of wealth and income is unfair; whether people generally rise or fall to the level they deserve, or whether initial endowments of wealth, educational opportunity, ethnic biases are determining factors 6 ; How you feel about democracy and the likelihood of corruption and capture vs.

4) Discussing their looks Everyone knows that the media judges women's physical appearance, granting obsessive attention to their clothing, makeup, and hairstyles. In 2008, Angela Merkel's cleavage at an Oslo opera house gala caused an international stir, with the Daily Mail, among others, publishing an image of the German chancellor with this headline: " Merkel's weapons of mass distraction ". Rome recently elected its new mayor, a corruption-figthing lawyer and city counsellor. But it was her looks that dominated the news: " Meet the beautiful girl who wants to be Rome's mayor and " Virginia Raggi, the new and beautiful mayor of Rome ". Hillary Clinton once sarcastically commented that if she wants to get on the front page, all she has to do is change her hair . 5) Commenting on their voices I'll close with yet another Clinton example (since she experienced every manner of gender bias during her two presidential bids): women are bad public speakers.
