If you thought you couldn’t love Pharrell’s “Happy” any more than you already do, check out this adorable video.

Those are the kids from Deaf Film Camp at upstate New York’s Camp Mark Seven performing the song in sign language. Deaf Film Camp, launched last year, teaches screenwriting, directing, acting, effects and cinematography to deaf campers. What an amazing opportunity for the kids & this is an amazing video showing that they are a talented and HAPPY group!

Isn’t great?!

You could be winning a trip to Berlin just by giving this guy a makeover! Ever since the Trivago Guy showed up on our big tv screens, the internet has been abuzz about his look…

trivagoguypic.jpg.size.xxlarge.promoWhy isn’t the pitch man for the world’s largest hotel search website wearing a belt? Why doesn’t he shave? Why does he look so dishevelled?

The buzz reached a crescendo this summer when the ads aired during the World Cup, with everyone from Rolling Stone Magazine to the Wall Street Journal weighing in. So now, thanks to Internet reaction to his beltless and too casual appearance,  the company has announced a Trivago Guy makeover contest, with the winner receiving a five-day trip to Berlin and a chance to watch the next commercial featuring the new and improved Trivago Guy.

HOW DO YOU WIN?! Post a photo of what outfit you’d like to see the Trivago Guy wearing on its Facebook contest page or via Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #trivagoGuy.

The deadline is Aug. 24. Voting will begin on Aug. 28 on Facebook.

Sadly for Canadian fans, the contest is only open to U.S. residents… Do you have an american po box?! hahaha

OMG! I’d love for this to happen to me! I’d totally freak out at first, but this baby seal is so friendly! How adorable!

Wanting to play, this seal pup decided to join in the fun by hopping right onto the boards of two surfers off the coast of northern England!

The seal played with them for about an hour, looking like it was truly trying to learn the tough skill of balancing on a surf board! It looks like I’m not the only one who has trouble with that! Haha

“It kept sliding off,” one of the surfers, Matthew Stanley, told the BBC. “But every time you caught a wave it would surf in on the white water.” You can see the seal really surfing 1:40 in!

Amazing, no?!

Thanks to Hollywood movies, most of us have a false idea of what drowning looks like…

We are at the mid-point of summer; pools are the place to be, vacations are being planned — if you are going to be anywhere around the water, make sure to read this!

We all know that drownings can happen in seconds. Swimming lessons and pool fences are vital, but we also know that nothing beats adult supervision. However, even if you have your eyes on the kids, you may be watching for all the wrong things….

imagesThe “drowning” you’ve seen on the big screen is a movie myth. People sometimes yell, wave, and splash when they’re struggling in the water. But when someone’s truly about to drown, it looks completely different. It’s frightening how quiet it can be.

When a person’s really drowning, their body doesn’t want to waste energy screaming and splashing… instinct makes their arms stay down; they may look like they’re climbing a ladder or pawing at the water. They stay upright, eyes glassy with their head back so that their mouth can grasp at the air when it surfaces.

The scary fact is that you typically have 20 to 60 seconds to help them. That’s all.

Watch THIS VIDEO to see what it really looks like.

Keep your eyes on the kids this summer and remember that it’s the quiet, not the yelling, that you should be worried about!

Oh my!

tataFacebook and Instagram are going to go bezerk with the new monokini in town — Tha Tata 10499039_488987367902981_1836553389_nTop…

It’s not surprising that this new top, which makes it look like you are topless, has become the unofficial symbol for the #freethenipple campaign — a campaign that is taking momentum right now attacking the prudishness of social media (both facebook and instagram instantly flag and delete any photo they feel too revealing)…

It seems to have started as a joke, but with the various colours and the fact that 5$ from each sale goes to breast cancer research, people are actually buying this!

Would you wear this?!

CRAVINGS… they are either salty or sweet and sometimes they are both! This might just be THE BEST cure for any cravings — a salted chocolate tart with a crust made out of potato chips!! WHAT?? YA! I KNOW!! ;)

Thank you People.com for this amazing recipe!!

Salted Chocolate Tart with Potato-Chip Crust

Serves 6 to 8

BqbY3fBIMAEg9AF9 oz. potato chips (sea-salt flavor works well)
5 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cup heavy cream
10 oz. semisweet chocolate chips
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
⅛ tsp. salt
8 oz. bittersweet chocolate chips
sea salt, for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. In a food processor, pulse the potato chips until they are finely ground. Add the melted butter and flour and pulse for 30 seconds to combine.

3. Press the potato chip crust into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch tart pan.

4. Transfer to the pre-heated oven and bake for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

5. Combine ¼ cup heavy cream and the semisweet chocolate chips in a medium pot over medium heat and warm the cream until the chocolate starts to melt. Whisk the two ingredients together until completely smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and salt and continue to whisk until smooth.

6. Pour the chocolate filling mixture into the cooled tart shell and place it back into the oven and bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until top is set. Remove it from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes.

7. Heat 1 cup of heavy cream in a small saucepan and add the bittersweet chocolate chips. Whisk together over medium heat until the mixture is smooth and all the chocolate has melted.

8. Pour this mixture over the middle of the chocolate tart and use an offset spatula to spread it around evenly.

9. Let the entire tart chill overnight in the refrigerator.

10. Dust with sea salt before slicing and serving.

11. EAT AND ENJOY!!! (I added that step!)
