Brands Declare Black Lives Matter, but Activists See a 'Double Standard' in Asia

Even as well known brands like Nike, Arsenal Football Club, and New Belgium Brewery have declared their support for racial justice in America and Europe, history shows they have profited from—or at the very least, turned a blind eye to—racially motivated oppression abroad, a pattern activists are describing as a hypocritical double standard.

Guys Are Acting Out Abusive Behaviour on TikTok – and Girls Are Tuning In

While all of God's creations can be found on TikTok, one species is better recognised than most: the e-boy. Characterised by floppy hair, necklaces, and 90s T-shirts layered over long sleeves, they usually lip-sync and wink their way through songs. Among them, a new trend is emerging. Searching "crazy boyfriend" or "psycho ex" on TikTok reveals a plethora of posts where e-boys scowl, shout or grin menacingly at the camera in what are known on the app as POV (point-of-view) videos. One post, in

Scotland Has Found the Perfect Solution to Homelessness

Eight weeks ago, Chris* was waking to the bitter winter chill of Scotland’s east coast. With nowhere to call home and “absolutely nothing” to his name, he had run out of options, and was living on the streets. “I felt really hopeless, it was so depressing,” recalls the 30-year-old Edinburgh man. But today, he’s feeling a little brighter. “I have a nice room with its own bathroom. It’s restful and I respect everyone here,” Chris says of his current accommodation – Edinburgh’s Old Waverley Hotel,

We Asked Delivery Drivers Which Is the Worst Company to Work for

Delivery drivers and riders are generally employed as independent contractors, aka “delivery partners”, which means they receive no sick pay, superannuation, holiday pay, or other benefits. They also get paid according to a delivery algorithm, rather than an hourly rate—which in some cases allows them to earn more money than casual workers—but mostly just leaves them with less than minimum wage.

How to Get Into UFOs

While everyone is either officially quarantined or simply self-isolating, countless people are stuck at home with plenty of time on their hands. For a paranormal UFOnaut junky like myself, keeping my mind honed towards ‘high strangeness’ is tough. UFO and paranormal conferences are being shuttered and my travel plans have been derailed, I am unable to visit long abandoned bunkers searching for Mothman or chase a UFO in Utah.

Beans Have Been Cool Since Way Before Quarantine

Washington Post food and dining editor Joe Yonan is a man obsessed. A man obsessed… with beans. On February 4, he published an entire cookbook, Cool Beans, focused on—you guessed it: beans. The book contains 125 different recipes including stews, dips, smoothies, and dessert, all including canned or dried beans—and before you think beans? in dessert???, trust us—it works surprisingly well, especially in Yonan's recipe for vegan chocolate mousse. But Yonan isn't the only one with beans on the br

This Disturbing TikTok 'POV' Trend Is All About Domestic Abuse

One video begins with a teenager cheerfully applying blush and putting on jewellery – before cutting to her staring despondently past the camera, the makeup on her face now simulating bruises and a black eye. The caption: "You go on a date with your abusive boyfriend and it doesn’t end well." In another, a smiling girl enters a dark room. The description tells us she’s been pushed there to "hook up" with the jock, but soon realises there are multiple boys waiting for her. She lip-syncs with fau

300 People Are Trapped at a Music Festival in Panama Because of Coronavirus

Imagine: you’ve spent a fortnight gurning to rib-shaking basslines. You’ve spent hazy afternoons listening to the wisdom of indigenous elders. And you’ve lazed on the sand with a bunch of globe-trotting hippies on Playa Chiquita, one of Central America’s most beautiful beaches. But as you reach the end of your music festival, you realise something’s not quite right. You’re actually stuck here – or more accurately, you’re trapped by local military and their fear of coronavirus. This is currentl

23 Years Later, the Phoenix Lights Are Still Unexplained

23 years ago today, the people of Arizona witnessed one of the most infamous UFO incidents in history. A new documentary series by filmmaker Seth Breedlove takes an in depth look into the so-called “Phoenix Lights.” On the Trail of UFOs doesn’t try to prove that the incident was aliens or flares, but instead expertly explores the cultural ramifications of the event on the UFO community. “As an event, the Phoenix Lights is important simply because it gained so much media attention, was witnesse

US Army Refuses to Release Records About Tom DeLonge's UFO Organization

The U.S. Army refused to release any records about its deal with Tom DeLonge’s UFO-hunting group To the Stars Academy (TTSA). In October of 2019, the former Blink-182 frontman’s UFO organization joined forces with the US Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command, a research and development body. According to the contract, the government is interested in studying some pretty exotic science such as active camouflage, inertial mass reduction, and quantum communication. In particular, the gove

Inside Skinwalker Ranch, a Paranormal Hotbed of UFO Research

The long red mesas of Utah’s Uintah Basin greet us as my driver, an American real estate mogul and tech investor, pulls us into Fort Duchesne. Looking out my window, we are finally out of the mountains and in the valley. My mind is lost in thought about the legends here, the supposed curse that now haunts this land, and the men and women who have experienced that curse head on. I have monsters on my mind. Well, actually just one: the Skinwalker.

The New York Water Crisis That Nobody's Talking About

Charlie Parker stood at the edge of the pond, his fishing rod in hand. He cast his lure into the air, landing it about 30 feet away in the dark water. His fishing rod made a clicking sound as he reeled the lure back to shore. If he catches a fish, he’ll have to throw it back, he said. “I don’t eat them anymore,” Parker said. “They’re contaminated.”
