The secret foundation that contains the world’s paranormal artifacts By Gavia Baker-Whitelaw on October 26th, 2014 Part wiki, part role-playing game, part storytelling community, the SCP Foundation has spent the past six years lurking in one of the darkest corners of the Internet. Caught in the sweet spot between “cool enough to keep attracting new members” and “obscure enough that no one is likely to Kickstart a documentary about it and ruin everything,” the SCP Foundation is a phenomenon that combines creepypasta—the Internet’s version of campfire horror stories—with the obsessive culture of Wikipedia editing. SCP stands for either Secure, Contain, and Protect (the main aims of the Foundation) or Special Containment Procedure. But what is the Foundation, and what is it protecting and containing? Its official mission statement is as follows: SCP artifacts pose a significant threat to global security. You are now working for the SCP Foundation.

The Worst Place in the World for MH370 to Go Missing Hope to find MH 370 was virtually destroyed by a month of bungled searching. The only saving grace was one lonely satellite company’s brilliance. It’s now a month since Malaysian Flight MH370 became modern aviation’s greatest mystery. Certain things are clear and many of them are disturbing. First, the oversight of commercial air space in this part of Asia is chaotic. As long as any physical evidence remains out of reach this is not only the most demanding sea search for an airplane ever undertaken, it’s a virtually impossible forensic challenge. The initial failure to report radar sightings of what was probably Flight MH370 had costly consequences in a time-critical situation. It took at least a week to produce anything resembling a reliable time line of the Boeing 777’s course after the last contact between it and controllers. As enraging as these lapses are, they should not come as a surprise. None of the nations involved is technically backward. Things got more personal.

Kirsten Dunst Says To Make Relationships Work, 'A Woman Needs To Be A Woman' First appearing on screen at the age of three, Kirsten Dunst is somewhat of a Hollywood fixture. With her next film, "The Two Faces of January," due in theaters later this month, Dunst covers the May issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K., looking ethereal and positively radiant. Too bad the only part of her interview to get any attention is her rather controversial thoughts on relationships. In a time when celebrities wave around the F word (feminism) like a trendy accessory and women are encouraged to "lean in" and fight the good fight for equality, the 31-year-old star tells Bazaar: I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking -- it’s a valuable thing my mom created. Beacon of feminism Jezebel called the actress "kind of dumb," while beauty site The Gloss called her interview "messed up."

The Moment Kurt Cobain Met Courtney Love Lana Del Rey is the latest young woman to be asked about her personal relationship to feminism and then chastised for an inability to do the absolute bare minimum: Google a definition. “For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept,” Lana Del Rey told Fader. “I’m more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what’s going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities. Whenever people bring up feminism, I’m like, god. I’m just not really that interested.” Del Rey is one of the many female celebrities who have recently been questioned about their feminist associations, and whose answers have, more often than not, been found wanting. Most articles on “the feminist question” chastise female celebrities for their inability or unwillingness to do the absolute bare minimum: Google a working definition of feminism. These celeb sound bites categorize feminism as a movement made up of angry man-haters. Of course, one could argue that every woman (every human being?)

« Mais vendez-les, vos terres, putain ! » | Rural rules Le poêle brûle à tout rompre. Pas un de ces mignons tas de fonte sophistiqués, avec une fenêtre qui se nettoie deux fois par mois, non : un gros Turbo, de ceux qu’on fabrique à Rocles. Un poêle dans lequel on passe des bûches de soixante dix, des chutes de contreplaqué, des quarts de palettes, des pieds de chaises : bref, tout ce qui peut se brûler. On est dix, douze ou vingt, je ne sais plus. Et ce n’est pas l’objet. L’hiver approchant, il est venu, comme chaque année, avec quatre compères pour préparer du bois. La première fois que je les ai vus, je débarquais tout juste dans le bocage. Je n’ai rien dit, pas plus que l’année d’après. « Pour une fois que vous quittez vos montagnes ! L’année dernière, quand on appris qu’ils allaient revenir, on a décidé de carrément organiser une fête pour eux. Tu démènes toute la raideur de ton corps, une dernière fois, en vue de l’hiver qui déboule. On a insisté. « Pour une fois que vous quittez vos montagnes ! Ils ne baissent pas la garde :

Lettre ouverte d'une fêtarde berlinoise à ses amis cocaïnomanes Manon Heugel est une blogueuse derrière Génération Berlin pour Radio France Internationale-Mondoblog. À Berlin depuis plusieurs années, cette artiste française dresse le constat d’un lien fort entre la capitale allemande et sa consommation frénétique de cocaïne. Ewan McGregor dans Trainspotting (Crédit Image : Channel Four Films) Les nuits berlinoises sont réputées pour leur liberté et leur clubbing à nul autre pareil. “Pas d’addiction, dit-on” Dans les commentaires d’un de mes articles, un lecteur me taxait d’angélisme, car je ne faisais pas mention de la coke qui circule dans les toilettes du club Berghain. Et pourtant, me direz-vous, vous qui habitez à Berlin depuis un mois ou trois ans, vous qui sortez et fréquentez les boîtes, la coke, c’est la petite poudre de la fiesta, rien de bien grave. A quoi est-elle coupée ? C’est ça, la vie du dealer de c à Berlin : une existence de merde, une existence traquée par les flics, une vie d’esclave qui attend toujours un coup de fil ou un SMS.

On the Origin of 'Fuck' | Kate Wiles One origin story for fuck is that it comes from when sex was outlawed unless it was permitted explicitly by the king, so people who were legally banging had Fornication Under Consent of the King on their doors, or: F.U.C.K. But obviously that's wrong. And if you do believe that, stop it. Stop it right now. But right now there's a post going round with a lovely image of a manuscript from Brasenose College, Oxford, proudly declaring it's the earliest instance of fuck in English (although, it notes, that is apart from that pesky one from Scotland and that one that says fuck but is written in code). So, for your enjoyment and workplace sniggering, here's a potted history of fuck. Instances of fuck before the 15th century are rare. Another theory for why there's hardly any written record of fuck before the 15th century is because, if it was around before then, it was just too darn rude to write down. John Le Fucker (supposedly from 1278) -- While excellent, this name is probably apocryphal.

Djihad en Syrie : à Berlin des pères apprennent à parler avec leurs fils Kazim Erdogan dirige l’une des séances de travail hebdomadaires du groupe de pères, au siège de l’association Aufbruch Neukölln, dans le quartier de Neukölln à Berlin. (A. Bilgenius/D.R.) Kazim Erdogan est catégorique : « Jamais mes filles n’iraient faire le djihad en Syrie. » Ce travailleur social est arrivé en Allemagne il y a exactement 40 ans. Dans un allemand impeccable, il se remémore son arrivée à la gare de Munich : « J’avais l’impression d’avoir 3 ans car je ne parlais pas la langue. » Ses deux filles ont aujourd’hui 21 et 24 ans, et il ne rate pas une occasion de parler avec elles de « résolution non-violente des conflits et des conséquences de la guerre », sait-on jamais. Bien qu’une vingtaine d’Allemandes aient déjà sauté le pas en se rendant en Syrie, les hommes seraient plus susceptibles de céder aux sirènes du djihad, « car dans la culture musulmane, ils sont élevés comme des héros, des sultans depuis le plus jeune âge », affirme Kazim Erdogan. Pourquoi des pères ?

Then-And-Now Photos Of The Girl From That Iconic LEGO Ad Show Just How Much Has Changed What a difference 33 years makes. Back in 1981, Rachel Giordano was a red-headed 4-year-old child model with pigtails and baggy jeans, starring in a LEGO ad -- in a time when toys did not yet scream pink or blue. Today she's a 37-year-old doctor (still with thick red hair and a proud grin), recreating her ad to send the message that creativity is not a boy thing or a girl thing. Last month, when HuffPost Parents resurfaced the 1981 ad as an example of what toy advertising should be, it was popping up all over social media. "In 1981, LEGOs were simple and gender-neutral, and the creativity of the child produced the message," Giordano told her. " In 2014, it’s the reverse: the toy delivers a message to the child, and this message is weirdly about gender.” Inside the van is a spiffy makeup table so the newscaster can get all pretty before her big stand-up about said world's best cake!

Classic Childhood Books That Grow With You | Zola Books Remember the books your parents/teachers/babysitters read to you when you were a kid? When it came to my parents, they chose the books they had loved as children themselves. When my mother read these to me, she would often end up crying at the end. Looking back on those books now, and even on what I read in my tweens and early teens, I start to understand. Chances are you’ve read these classics, but prepare to discover the rollercoaster ride of feels when you reread them. Dr. Kid Read: Bedtime stories like The Sneetches, Yertle the Turtle and The Lorax were all fun. Adult Read: Get ready to have your innocence ruined. Little Women Kid Read: Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women starts on Christmas Eve, and that is exactly what reading the book feels like: comforting, like hot cocoa on a freezing winter afternoon. Alcott handles religion, immigration, and death as well as grownups’ need to get over the castles in the air you built as a child. The Little Prince Patricia Polacco Harriet the Spy

Le journalisme et l'historien Voici le texte intégral de la communication d’Henri Pigeat : Faut-il faire confiance au journaliste ? La question n’est pas tout à fait celle qui guide cette année les travaux de votre Académie, mais le rapprochement entre journaliste et historien est assez naturel, indépendamment du fait que le crédit du journaliste est sans doute plus contesté encore que celui de l’historien. En tentant ici de confronter la démarche journalistique à la démarche historique, mon propos n’est pas d’établir quelque délimitation corporatiste, mais d’utiliser ce parallèle pour apprécier les méthodes et les finalités du journalisme et son influence sur notre société. L’intérêt de cette comparaison est aussi avivé par le moment que nous vivons. En fait, contrairement à ce qu’Albert Camus écrivait en 1945 dans Combat, le journalisme n’a jamais été véritablement « l’historien de l’instant ». Le journaliste n’a jamais été véritablement l’historien de l’instant. Au début des deux démarches est « l’istoriè ».
