9.13.2011 Headlines: Miss Angola Takes The Crown, F21 Sends the Wrong Message and Missoni for Target is Here!
Michelle Bachmann tells CNN’s John King that she will announce her official bid for presidency in June. The most interesting parts of the interview however may have been the quotes, like this one…”They should come to my Facebook site, join my Twitter account and go to MichelleBachmann.com and donate”.
Eek, in an effort to weed out bad apples an Editor at the Essex Chronicle (in the UK) has told reporters that they only have 140 characters to prove their worth his time. The request comes after disgruntlement due to poorly written cover letters and resumes. The editor signed off saying, “”I keep getting told there is an over-supply of qualified people wanting to do journalism. Well, maybe there is but thereâ€™s definitely not an over-supply of people who are any good.” Pretty harsh no?
After months of waiting, speculating, teasers and sheer excitement, Missoni for Target is finally in stores for purchase and available “bright and early”. There were items on the website that had already been marked “sold out” though a store search would quickly locate them in a shop nearby. The complete collection is not available online but will remain in stores until October 22nd.
A t-shirt from mass retailer “Forever 21″ exclaims “Allergic to Algebra”, a slogan that feeds into the negative stereotype and studies that say young girls aren’t as fond of math and science as boys and aren’t excelling at the same pace. Parents, reporters and activists alike are outraged. A similar t-shirt earlier this year was pulled from the shelves of J.C. Penny followed by an apology. GlamourNerds know that smart girls are hot, there should be a t-shirt that exclaims just that.
Miss Angola, also known as Leila Lopes beat out 88 other contestants Monday night to take home the crown of Miss Universe in Sao Paulo, Brazil. While beauty and grace is certainly on her side, the most impressive thing about her was her take on being confident in herself. When asked what she would change about her characteristics, she replied, “Thank God I’m very satisfied with the way God created me and I wouldn’t change a thing.”
