The latest Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a test administered by the OECD every three years to more than half a million students, found that boys scored 4 points, or less than 1%, better than girls in science. In the assessment, in 2015, boys outperformed girls in 24 places, with the biggest gaps in Austria, Costa Rica, and Italy. Girls outperformed boys in 22, with Finland, Qatar and Jordan among those with the biggest gaps favoring girls. But the OECD find one notable difference between the sexes: in every single country tested, girls had much higher levels of schoolwork- and test-related anxiety than boys. On average across OECD countries, girls were about 13 percentage points more likely than boys to report they get very tense when they study.

The OECD offers a few possible explanations. Blank slate: Hundreds of ‘White Albums’ take up residence in LIverpool art gallery.

Every crate digger’s nightmare: Record store has ‘Whipped Cream and Other Delights’ and nothing else If there’s one thing all record collectors have in common, it’s the experience of running into Whipped Cream & Other Delights by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass innumerable times…. like literally, every time you go into a record store you haven’t been to already.

If you’re flipping through the A rack or the H rack (different stores do it different ways), then at some point you’re quite likely to flip past the familiar green image of a comely lass (Dolores Erickson is her name) wearing nothing but an impossible quantity of a cream-like substance (it was actually shaving cream, and she was pregnant at the time).

Nose hair extensions are the next hot beauty trend everyone needs to try

Lightning bolt brows. Clumpy lashes. The beauty world has got a real thing for body hair right now, but if you’re bored of drawing all the focus to your eyes, never fear – there’s another hairy trend you can try. Behold nose hair extensions. Technically they’re not extensions, but false lashes stuck around the rim of each nostril, splayed out to create the effect of super long hair peeking out of your nose. The Coolest Custom Neon Bar Signs in the World - Supercall. Neon has been a part of cocktail culture since 1913, when one of the world’s first neon signs, a spectacular, block-lettered advertisement for a brand of vermouth, radiated from a Paris rooftop.

“Liquid fire” has been used to attract imbibers pretty much ever since, and some of the most distinctive neon designs ever have lit up the facades of bars. Here, Wayne Heller, a designer and Art Director at Lite Brite Neon in Brooklyn, singles out six of the coolest neon bar signs on the planet. New York, NY This neon sign falls into the category of what I would deem NYC vernacular, in which you solve design problems by winging it, or using readily available materials (see also: NYC bodega signs).

The magical and disturbing dream-like nude oil paintings of Erik Thor Sandberg

In the “personal interests” section on his Facebook page, Quantico, Virginia-based artist Erik Thor Sandberg includes the following “things”: dead things; naked things; vintage things; antique things; disturbingly cute things, and acutely disturbing things. All of which rather accurately describe Sandberg’s art, which borders on the genre of Magic Realism. The term was first used by art historian and photographer Franz Roh to identify artists operating within that realm following the Post-Expressionism period, a term used to describe artistic movements that occurred following WWI, which was also coined by Roh.

What it’s like to be a part of the world’s richest 1 percent, in 15 incredible photos

(Paolo Woods and Gabriele Galimberti/Institute 2013) How much do we really know about the world's wealthiest people? We often think we understand the rich because we read tabloids and watch celebrities on TV, says Myles Little, a New York City-based photo editor who has put together a new collection of photographs on the richest 1 percent. But actually, most people know surprisingly little about the world's wealthiest. For example, many people assume the world's top earners are movie stars or athletes — like boxer Floyd Mayweather, who ranked as the top-paid athlete with a respectable $300 million in 2015. Yet the world's top hedge fund manager made far more last year than Mayweather. The Kinky Ink of Apollonia Saintclair. Paintings by Alexandra Rubinstein. The Surreal Photographs of Hugh Kretschmer. Hugh Kretschmer’s photographs are highly conceptual as well as imaginative.

The Surreal Photographs of Hugh Kretschmer

According to Kretschmer, “ My ideas are conjured-up by my dreams and desires of what life could be, if only… They are commentaries on the human condition and seek to embrace the strengths and weaknesses we all share; illustrated through quirk and irony.” Kretschmer’s photographs manage to be playful and surreal while still maintaining thoughtful and dark undertones. His artistic process of some of his work, starting from his original drawings to the end result can be seen in his Tumblr.

His work explores the intersection of being playful and powerful. Hugh Kretschmer was born in Los Angeles and his career has spanned for over two decades. Text by Melissa Welikson.

Conventional Wisdom: Anthrocon - Cool Hunting. “This is the highlight of my year,” Thumpie Bunny Eve shared with photographer Arthur Drooker, while sat atop a piano, wearing high heels, exuding sexuality—and wearing a rabbit costume. This was just one scene at Anthrocon, the world's largest convention for anthropomorphics, the humanlike animal characters more commonly referred to as "furries. " Anthrocon is the latest stop on Drooker's Conventional Wisdom tour, during which the photographer has brought his lens—and his audience—into the weird and wonderful world of eccentric conventions, from Santas to sexual explorers. We've been following him for a year now, as he accrues imagery for a book-in-progress, and Anthrocon is most certainly one of the highlights. During the 4 July holiday weekend, furries made their way from around the globe to Pittsburgh's David L. Lawrence Convention Center and, according to Drooker, turned it "into a wild kingdom.

Flickr/dewet Proper dating etiquette is not a thing No one's getting picked up and dropped off at their house for the “date” and there isn't an implied commitment for dinner. Instead, it’ll be more of a, “Hey, wanna grab a drink after work” type of thing and then you’ll Uber there separately and have to awkwardly find each other in the bar and depending on how it goes, maybe get food after a couple of drinks, and then Uber home separately, and yes he is 100% leaving you alone on the sidewalk if his Uber shows up first.
