Happiness Through Gratitude with AJ Jacobs

Chase Jarvis Photography Nasa Koski

AJ Jacobs is a multiple NYT bestselling author, a journalist, a lecturer as well as a warm and hilarious human soul.  He’s on this weeks podcast and is…SO GOOD. In this show we learn why AJ intentionally puts himself in the most extraordinary circumstances … like when he strove to be “the world’s healthiest man” going from Dad bod to ultimate health (Book = Drop Dead Healthy). Or when he lived according to the bible for a year, beard, goats and all… (Book = The Year of Living Biblically). In this episode we have a blast, learn and laugh a lot, and discuss AJ’s new book Thanks a Thousand, which chronicles his journey of gratitude in the same lovable – but brilliantly insightful – way. AJ has more tools in his toolbelt for being happy, healthy and productive than nearly anyone I’ve met. And because he’s experimented so deeply with each of these tools, he knows just when to put them to good use. He’s the rare blend of incredibly relatable and wildly successful at the same time. If you know his work already this will be a huge boost to your week. If you are new to his work, be prepared to thank […]

20 Top Photos from the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards

PetaPixel Michael Zhang

Need a laugh? The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards has announced its finalists for 2017. The contest injects humor into the world of wildlife photography by searching for the funniest photos of animals captured around the world.

In addition to providing smiles and laughs, the contest also aims to raise awareness for wildlife conservation efforts. This year, the competition received over 3,500 entries from photographers in 86 countries.

“The images are shortlisted by how funny they are and the technical quality of their photograph,” says contest co-founder and co-judge Paul Joynson-Hicks, “subsequently the [finalists] are judged purely on their humour and content.”

Here’s a selection of 20 of the finalist photos from this year’s contest:

Three Tanors by Roie Galitz. Marvelous musical act by three joyful elephant seals in South Georgia Island.
MOM, MOM, MOM, MOM by Barb D’Arpino. Female Burrowing Owl looking exhausted as four of her owlets vie for her attention.
Help !!! by Tibor Kercz. Little owl nestlings.
The laughing dormouse by Andrea Zampatti. A baby dormouse seem laughing on a yarrow flower.
Outsourcing seatbelt checks by Graeme Guy. Masai Mara airstrip with a plane landing ‘below’ giraffe height.
Duck Speed! by John Threlfall. Duck in front of plane trail.
WTF? by George Cathcart. Young elephant seal reacts to his friend’s revelation that he voted for Brexit.
Lord of the jungle by Gill Merritt. For those old enough to remember the Carry On films, this reminded of matron!
Animal encounters by Jean-Jacques Alcalay. Blue wildebeest standing on a mound.
Grimace by Josef Friedhuber. Mountains Gorilla is making grimaces after he came out of the bush after the rain.
Burrowing Owlet embarrassed by kissing behind him! by Melissa Usrey. GET a ROOM!
Slap by Troy Mayne. A Green Turtle slapping a Napoleon Maori Wrasse.
Kung fu training (Australian style) by Andrey Giljov. Wild red kangaroos are most active in the early morning. And the morning is the best time for the martial art training! Of course, this was not a training kangaroo male, but a funny posture during scratching. At least kangaroos want us to think so…
Let Me Clear My Vision by Arkaprava Ghosh. A red Ghost crab (Ocypodinae sp.) seen adjusting and cleaning one of its eyes at the Frazergunj beach in West Bengal, India.
Caught in the Act by Bence Mate. The bears tried to hide in the bush for a quick tryst, but they were surely caught in the act.
Laughing seal by Brian Valente. A seal looks to be getting a good laugh about something.
Must Have Three-putted… by Douglas Croft. Golf is a frustrating game and if you’ve ever picked up a golf club, you’ve wanted to do this.
Monkey Escape by Katy Laveck Foster. Celebes Macaques are a critically endangered primate found only on the northern region of Sulawesi, Indonesia. Tangkoko Nature Reserve is an important habitat for this species and others. These two monkeys broke away from their group to ‘test drive’ a motorbike parked near the entrance to the reserve.
Gnu’s Flash by Paulette Struckman. Gnu and shadow at the watering hole at the hide in Mkhuze park.
Wild about laughing by Tina Stehr. Frank, always laughing at his own jokes…

Winners of this year’s contest will be announced on December 14th, 2017. In addition to the contest, CWPA has just launched two new photo books: the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards and Wild and Crazy: Photos from the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, available both in the US and UK.

When Contour Makeup Goes Too Far…

PetaPixel Michael Zhang

Here’s a lighthearted 2-minute sketch by CollegeHumor’s Hot Date series, titled “Contour Makeup Has Gone Too Far.” It’s about a woman who takes her contouring makeup too far to look perfect in Instagram photos… at the expense of looking normal in real life.

“Real life is fleeting. Instagram likes last forever,” the woman says.

If you’re not familiar with contouring makeup, here’s a diagram by Aesthetica that shows what it can help you achieve (especially in portrait photo shoots):

Unlike what’s seen in the sketch and in this diagram, however, contour makeup is supposed to be blended after it’s applied to produce a natural look.
