10 Bisexual Celebrities That Everyone Keeps Labeling As Gay Or Straight

We’re nearing the end of Bisexual Health Awareness Month: a time set aside by the Bi Resource Center to focus on issues that specifically affect those who identify with the B in LGBT. We still have a long, long way to go before we reach equality for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and one glaring issue in our culture is bi erasure. All too often, people who call themselves bisexual get hammered into ill-fitting cubbies labeled “straight” and “gay”– and it happens to celebrities all the time. Here are 10 famous names that we all need to associate with bisexuality!

5 Celebrities Who’ve Undergone Coronary Bypass Surgery

News of Burt Reynolds’ recent quintuple bypass surgery reminded me of when my Dad had the same operation back in 1997 at the ripe old age of 73. His age plus the dangers of anesthesia plus such a blocked-up ticker prompted the cardiologist to prepare us for the worst, but thanks to a combination of modern medicine and Dad’s upbeat attitude when it comes to hospital stays (it’s better than a hotel because pretty young girls give him sponge baths!) he’s still going strong 13 years later. Here are a few other famous folks who owe their lives to just-in-time heart surgery.

Thrive At The Dive: The 6 Biggest Floppers In Sports

Every four years, the best divers in the world show off their moves in international competition. And we're not talking about springboard or platform events at the Summer Olympics. Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo and others will be taking their best dives at the FIFA World Cup over the next few weeks. Actually, Ronaldo's got a few flops in already, drawing the ire of Ivory Coast defender Guy Demel in Tuesday's first-round game. But while soccer players are the most slapped with the diving stereotype, they certainly aren't the only athletes trying to deceive the referees.

50 Collective Nouns to Bolster Your Vocabulary

Collective nouns may seem like quirky ways to describe groups, but 500 years ago, they were your ticket to the in-crowd. Most collective nouns, or “terms of venery,” were coined during the 15th century. Many were codified in books of courtesy, like the 1486 classic Book of St. Albans. St. Albans was a handbook for medieval gentlemen, and it contained essays on hawking, hunting, and heraldry. Appended to the hunting chapter sits a list of 164 collective nouns, titled “The Compaynys of Beestys and Fowlys.”

5 Phrases You Should Never Use In An Email

It's way easier to rely on clichés and claptrap in your writing than to expend the energy on an original thought--one reason why the 70 emails you send a day all sound the same. Is this a bad thing? Not necessarily: It depends on the function of the message. If you're just communicating with colleagues or friends, there's no need to find new phrasing--though we've been told to please keep it to five sentences, thank you. However, if you're trying to make a good impression--for example, when you're trying to start a working relationship with someone--then sounding thoughtful, rather than thoughtless, is a bonus. Remember: Emails are just text and lack the richness of the human voice that you get in a phone call or the wealth of body language and eye contact that you get face to face. All the other person has to go from is your words. So let's learn to choose them a little more wisely.

3 Electric Vehicles You Can Own for Less Than $10,000

You need an extra car, maybe for a teenager or a spouse returning to work, or an elderly parent who lives at home.

Tanks Don’t Suit Them: 7 Orcas Living Rough Lives in Captivity

Life for captive orcas can be extremely stressful, as evidenced in the documentary film Blackfish and my book Death at SeaWorld. But when health, behavioral, familial, and reproductive issues are considered, it’s clear that some of the 53 killer whales living in aquariums and amusement parks around the world are leading even rougher lives than the others. Of the seven we’ve chosen to highlight, six were ripped from their families in the wild—and five of them are prime candidates for rehabilitation and return to the ocean. The following list was compiled in consultation with Dr. Naomi Rose, a marine mammal scientist at the Animal Welfare Institute and a leading expert on killer whales.

10 Radically Experimental Cabins, Cocoons, And Shacks

When New Order’s Barney Sumner sang “When I hear a baby cry/When I see an old man die/Rock the shack, rock the shack,” I’m pretty sure he wasn’t talking about a cozy tree house in the Swedish woods. But that hasn’t stopped the editors over at Gestalten from putting Barney’s cryptic lyrics to good use as the title of a new book on retreat architecture. Rock the Shack: The Architecture of Cabins, Cocoons and Hide-Outs, which came out last month in Europe and this month in America, is an unpretentious look at compelling design in places only Thoreau could love.

10 Weird Cases of Incredible Animal Evolution

Evolutionary adaptation has been documented in shaping life forms into distinct, recognizable groups with defining traits that we take for granted. However, there are some creatures that have evolved in such such bizarre ways, they could be excommunicated from their parent groups, such as the ocean going iguana, while unrelated species can no longer be distinguished due to convergence. We will now learn about cases including herbivorous hawks, meat eating parrots and a tiny giraffe.
