Klout. Yogi Furniture. MANteresting: A Pinterest for men. Men don't pin things; they nail them, according to new male-oriented social bookmarking site, MANteresting. As Pinterest has taken off, its growth has been primarily driven by its overwhelmingly female user base. As a result, the site and its pinboards have a distinctly feminine touch. Enter MANteresting, the newly-launched social bookmarking site with the tagline: “Interesting.

Man. Things.” The instructions are simple: users are told to share “manly things” with the community and to get inspired by “awesome” content. The site describes itself as the first social bookmarking service to specifically cater to the male population. While the site has the same general design of Pinterest, with user-generated posts scattered across the home page and the option of searching for particular keywords, it injects a healthy dose of testosterone into the concept. MANteresting users don't “pin” things, they “nail it”. “It's quite simple really. Our comments policy does not allow anonymous postings.

» The Ape Man Chronicles Part 1: Unveiling the Heart of Darkness » Fierce Wisdom. A long time ago, Apeman was happy to swing in the trees with Apelady, eat bananas, and have a rompus time all ‘round til the end of his days. Then, something changed — he got tired of swinging and wanted more! His creative appetite was no longer met by his ape man life. So he migrated off the trees and started building cave dwellings and homes for his ape family. He began to craft tools and implements for hunting, while the ape ladies gathered together and did ape-lady things. But Apeman still was not satisfied — he wanted more… He learned to farm and grow crops, and soon civilizations of cultured ape people were popping up everywhere.

The Evolution of Apeman and the Heart of Darkness By now, Apeman and his vast web of tribes and enemies were so far removed from their roots, you could hardly recognize them (save for their occasional barbaric rituals and traditions). He believed the last of the ape men were uncivilized, and inhuman — they must be granted the gifts of modern civilization. Students protest yoga pants ban. Several students at a Houston high school said they were punished for wearing yoga pants to school. The students attend Memorial High School. A Spring Branch Independent School District spokesperson said the rule is clearly stated under the dress code section of the student handbook. To protest the yoga pants rule, students created a Facebook page encouraging students to wear the pants to school on Thursday. Some students said they were given in school suspensions for wearing the tight-fitting pants.

However, school officials said they may have given out detentions but not suspensions. "I think this is a waste of time. The school issued a statement, saying in part, "The MHS dress code is established to prevent disruption, avoid safety hazards and prepare each student for future employability. " The school said the dress code is reviewed periodically throughout the year.

The Auction Publicity website reports that,"Two-Day sale at Philip Weiss auctions realizes a record $5.2 million as rare stamps, Peanuts comic strips and more bring dizzying prices. " The auction took place last weekend, May 17-18, in Oceanside, New York.

According to the write-up,"The key to the weekend’s success was Part 2 of The Newport Stamp Collection, which featured some of the most rare and coveted philatelic U.S. examples in existence. " It goes on to say, "Part 1 of The Newport Collection made headlines when, on February 9, an unused 1869 24-cent inverted stamp, #120, one of only four known, soared to $1.271 million. It was a new record for a U.S. invert and the highest price ever paid for a single U.S. stamp. Part 2 did not record any million-dollar stamps, but many strong sellers did cross the block. The top lot of the sale was a 1908 2-cent vertical coil pair, with original gum (Scott Catalog #321).

Here's What People Look at on Facebook Brand Pages. Saudi Arabian Woman Beheaded For "Sorcery" In a horrific practice of “justice,” Amina bint Abdul Halim bin Salem Nasser, a Saudi Arabian national, was executed on Monday, after being convicted of practicing sorcery, which is banned in the ultra-conservative kingdom, the interior ministry said. Amina bint Abdulhalim Nassar was executed in the northern province of Jawf for “practising witchcraft and sorcery,” the ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency.

Second Execution For “Sorcery” Recently The execution is the second of its kind in recent months. In September a Sudanese national was beheaded in the Saudi Arabian city of Medina after being convicted on “sorcery” charges. He had allegedly confessed after being tortured and was tried without a lawyer. “While we don’t know the details of the acts which the authorities accused Amina of committing, the charge of sorcery has often been used in Saudi Arabia to punish people, generally after unfair trials, for exercising their right to freedom of speech or religion.” Islamists Call for Lesbian's Death (Video) An Islamist group called for a Muslim lesbian author to be killed and invaded a discussion on Islam in Amsterdam last week. A December 8 debate, which included the Canadian Muslim lesbian author Irshad Manji and MP Tofik Dibi on a panel, was disrupted when extremists from the group Sharia4Belgium stormed the event, held at the De Balie theater in Amsterdam.

The mob threw eggs and called for Manji’s neck to be broken. The group of about 20 men and boys arrived halfway through the evening, chanted slogans and pelted the audience with eggs. A police mobile unit had to be called to eject the rioters, and two Belgian men aged 19 and 22 were arrested. The people who disrupted the debate were members of the Belgian group Sharia4Belgium, an offshoot of Sharia4Holland. Dibi is a young, gay Dutch-Moroccan GreenLeft (GroenLinks) MP. Manji was in Europe to promote her new book, Allah, Liberty and Love. “What was really nice to see, and I have never seen, was that the whole audience stood up for us. The Republican War On Women: It's Not Just About Abortion [VIDEO]

Gutting social safety net programs, removing child care subsidies, cutting off access to family planning, destroying the unions that fight for jobs that are predominately held by women. These activities are happening nationally, and they are happening state by state. But in North Carolina, there is an even more insidious plank in the Republican’s War on Women platform: an attempt to make it more difficult for female politicians, most of them Democrats, to get reelected. “…Republicans drew nearly a dozen Democratic women out of their legislative districts in an effort to eliminate our voice in the General Assembly. In their efforts to make sure that the most capable voices fighting for women in the General Assembly are silenced, they have waged an all out war on our Democratic women in elected office.” But these women aren’t taking this lying down.

Built in the 14th century as a monastery for the Crutched Friars, the complex, which includes a Gothic church, enjoyed a brief second life as a government office building before it was abandoned in 1979. Late in 2000, it was thoroughly renovated and repurposed as a luxurious, five-star hotel. The old monastery houses most of the guestrooms, while the Renaissance-style concierge building and a newly-built annex accommodate the remaining spaces. The former church now contains a stunning reception area, conference rooms, a library, a boutique and a coffee bar.
