Only artist Hannah Rothstein (previously) could capture the hilarity of the manly mindfulness movement she calls Broga. Playfully combining two groups of people—bros and yogis—who frequently take themselves a bit too seriously, she’s captured what’s sure to be next big workout craze. From Intensive Boar-ior III to Manchild’s pose, watch these brogis as they find their inner zen with six packs in hand. (We dare you to keep a straight face.)

The Corpse Pose (aka Shitfaceasana) is a bro’s final resting pose. Rothstein says it best: “After a night of partying, fall to the floor with limbs sprawled wide. If still cognizant after five minutes, roll onto your side so you don’t choke on your puke. Breathe deeply and pass out, bro—you’ve done great work today.” Source: Hannah Rothstein

Inside The Life Of A Twenty-Something Hillary Clinton

There was a time when all Hillary Rodham Clinton wanted to do was finish her freakin’ dissertation.

The year was 1969. The place, Wellesley College. Hillary Rodham was not just trying to finish her senior thesis, but also prepare to speak at her graduation: the first student to be asked to do so in the university’s history. Even at twenty-two, there was something about her that made people pay attention.

In the myriad biographies that have been written about Hillary, Gail Sheehy was the only writer to give us a portrayal of the woman who would become HRC as a somewhat clumsy, geeky undergrad who escaped the conservative trappings of her upbringing to become a vocal, steely, liberal before that was socially cool.

In Sheehy’s book, Hillary’s Choice, she interviewed several of Hillary’s former classmates and childhood friends. Most of them remembered her as being pugnacious from the start and clearly uninterested in her appearance; a stance that has remained a major element of her media strategy even as a middle-aged woman. One of her honors classmates, John Peavoy, summed it up for Sheehy in one sentence:

“The reason Hillary didn’t date much was because she was so formidable.”

Reflecting on both her senior thesis, An Analysis of the Alinsky Model —a lofty critique of the work of radical Saul Alinsky—and the controversial speech she gave at Wellesley’s 1969 Commencement, formidable was a fair assessment of Hillary Rodham. In front of her professors, 400 classmates, their families and the distinguished guests at the commencement ceremony, she went a bit off-book during her formally prepared speech to criticize the main speaker at the commencement, Senator Edward Brooke:

“Part of the problem with empathy with professed goals is that empathy doesn’t do us anything. We’ve had lots of empathy; we’ve had lots of sympathy, but we feel that for too long our leaders have used politics as the art of making what appears to be impossible, possible.

What does it mean to hear that 13.3 percent of the people in this country are below the poverty line? That’s a percentage. We’re not interested in social reconstruction; it’s human reconstruction. How can we talk about percentages and trends? The complexities are not lost in our analyses, but perhaps they’re just put into what we consider a more human and eventually a more progressive perspective.”

Twentysomething Hillary Clinton Life

Those who had come to know Hillary over her four years at Wellesley (and even those who had known in her childhood) couldn’t have been surprised, but those who recall that moment where she launched into an eloquent, improvised attack on the Senator would classify it as a “Hoe, don’t do it” situation. But do it she did—segueing seamlessly into her prepared speech and receiving a standing ovation at the end—which lasted several minutes.

Martin Beck’s Superheroes Aren’t Who You’d Expect

Close your eyes for a moment and picture a superhero. If you’re anything like me, you probably didn’t imagine a mechanic working on a car or a pregnant woman chowing down on a dozen doughnuts. Instead, you likely envisioned a strong, fit individual—most likely a white male—in a Marvel-inspired costume that lacked a single stain or wrinkle.

It was this exact, immaculately-composed superhero ideal that photographer Martin Beck wanted to dismantle when he came up with the idea for “We Can Be Heroes”. In the gallery below, each photo portrays someone ordinary–it could be your local grocer or an elderly couple slumped into the couch–in superhero garb that’s worn and dirty:

In addition to capturing the Hulk in a speedo, Martin Beck is a Scottish and South African photographer who has a hand in many different industries: fashion, music, art, and rock ‘n’ roll, to name a few. While he’s worked with companies like Bloomingdales and Harpers India, it’s the amusing and motivational photo series like “We Can Be Heroes” that has really catapulted him into Internet stardom.

Whether they’re ironing clothes or having tea on the couch, Beck’s superheros often find themselves in mundane routines that catch viewers off guard. These juxtapositions give the entire series a light, playful feel, while also underscoring the truth that all of us, in our own way, can and do save lives. According to Beck, “Everyone is a superhero.”

Children At The Anlong Pi Dump Face Horrendous Conditions

Burning Anlong Pi Dump

Each year, millions of tourists gather in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province to visit the Angkor Wat temple. Built as a spiritual home for the Hindu god Vishnu, the UNESCO World Heritage Site is an archaeological triumph that offers scholars an intimate look at Cambodia’s past. Yet alongside the beautiful temples and flashy tourist magnets, a much darker world exists. Let us introduce you to the Anlong Pi dump, a toxic landfill where poor men, women and children must scavenge for recyclable materials every day:

Click here to view slideshow

Anlong Pi is the Siem Reap province’s main dumping site. Each morning, workers from around the region travel to the landfill in search of plastic, copper and other recyclable materials that they can exchange for money. Using a pickaxe to break apart the mounds of rotting waste, workers sift through oceans of trash, congregating whenever a new garbage truck arrives to unload. To earn one dollar, workers must collect about eight pounds of recyclable material.

Around one third of the workers at Anlong Pi are children, many of whom are as young as 10 years old. Instead of attending school, these kids are forced to scavenge the wasteland from morning until night, often navigating through the piles without shoes, which are too expensive. Because they are light, the kids are able to move deeper into the landfill without sinking into the trash mounds. Sometimes the children collect toys and other belongings from the piles of rubbish.

As if working, and for some living, at the dump site wasn’t horrible enough, these workers also risk their health each day. Anlong Pi is incredibly dangerous to public health: as inorganic and organic materials mix and interact with one another in the landfill, they release toxins into the air, land and local water supply. Men, women and children breathe toxic methane gas as they dig through the muck. Those who live at the landfill face the most terrible conditions, often working through the night as the waste is burned, inhaling a cocktail of lethal gases.

In recent years, Anlong Pi has become something of a tourist target itself. Now, tour buses arrive at the wasteland filled with foreign travelers who come to snap photos of the workers, bringing sweets for the children who beg for money and candy. The locals have recognized their own superficial lure and are now capitalizing on it. Viku Tupse, a nine-year-old boy who lives at the landfill, found a broken Mickey Mouse face and knew that when he placed it on his head, it would entertain the tourists.

Despite the abundance of wealth just miles from the growing landfill, years of civil unrest and internal conflicts have made Cambodia one of the world’s poorest countries. While the country’s temples draw about 2 million tourists each year, their money does little to help the region’s extremely poor rural population. Hundreds live among the trash on less than $2 a day.

Artist Guido Daniele Turns Your Arm Into Your Favorite Animal

We might regard body painting as a relatively new art form, but in reality it is an ancient practice shared across many cultures. Be it tribal painting rituals, henna tattoos or morning makeup routines, the human body has historically presented itself as an apt canvas for personal expression.

In the West, most of our knowledge on the subject begins and ends with clowns painting animals on kids’ faces at birthday parties. But artists like Guido Daniele take the process to the next level. Daniele doesn’t paint animals on human skin so much as he uses paint to transform people into the animals in question.

Daniele was born in Soverato, Italy. In 1972, he graduated from Brera Academy, where he majored in sculpture. From there, he attended tankas school in Dharamsala, India until 1974. Daniele has taken on a variety of subjects in his work, which he promotes through multiple channels, like advertising, housing murals and set designs. Hand animals, or “handimals”, as he calls them, are his specialty. It is through this medium that Daniele has become something of an institution in the body art world. Some of his designs are so true to life that viewers often have difficulty distinguishing his hand animals from the real thing.
