World’s most annoying plane passengers

Published on Friday, March 24th, 2017 By volca

(CNN)Are they nervous, or bored, or completely oblivious? There's no one-size-fits-all diagnosis for the airplane seat kicker, but they're universally annoying.

For the third year in a row, rear seat kickers have earned the dubious distinction of being the No. 1 most offensive type of airline passenger.
They beat out inattentive parents, aromatic passengers, seat recliners and more in the fourth annual Expedia Airplane Etiquette Study, released Tuesday.
Drawn from feedback from 1,005 Americans age 18 and over, the study shows that 64% of respondents find the rear seat kicker annoying. Inattentive parents rank second, aggravating 59% of those surveyed, followed by smelly or "aromatic" passengers (55%).
Rear seat kickers have topped the rankings since 2014. In 2013, the first year of the study, inattentive parents topped the list.
Despite some variations, there's a common theme from...

Published on Friday, March 24th, 2017 By volca

Bride Susana Zamos and her groom Jovany had dreamed of getting married in the middle of the ocean, but their original wedding planners promptly shot down the idea.

We had a wedding planner who told us, No, you cant get married in the ocean, its far too complicated, the bride said in the video above. So I said, okay, hes right. Well just get married on the beach like everyone else and thatll be it.

But photographer Sol Tamargo and her team at Del Sol Photographywere committed to making it happen. In November 2016, Susana and Jovanys dream became a reality when they, along with 100 of their guests, were boated to the El Cielo sandbar in Cozumel, Mexico for the wedding ceremony. The photos are nothing short of breathtaking.

13 Body Language Blunders That Make You Look Bad

Published on Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 By volca

Our bodies have a language of their own, and their words arent always kind. Your body language has likely become an integral part of who you are, to the point where you might not even think about it.

If thats the case, its time to start, because you could be sabotaging your career.

TalentSmart has tested more than a million people and found that the upper echelons of top performance are filled with people who are high in emotional intelligence (90 percent of top performers, to be exact). These people know the power that unspoken signals have in communication and they monitor their own body language accordingly.

Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80 percent of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the...

It's never going to happen.

If there's one Facebook rumor that absolutely refuses to die, it's that a dislike button might someday appear on the site.

No matter how many times Mark Zuckerberg says he will never, ever make one, at least once a year, it seems, a fresh rumor picks up steam. This time, rumors were stoked when it was discovered that the social network is doing a small test of a thumbs down reaction inside of Messenger.

At last, right? Not quite.

Facebook confirmed the test is real, but this doesn't mean we're any closer to getting anything resembling an actual dislike button.

For one, calling Messenger's thumbs down emoji the equivalent of a "dislike" is a bit of a stretch. Unlike Facebook's reactions, emoji in Messenger aren't labeled. And even if they...

There’s Now A Statue Of A Young Girl Facing Wall Street’s Famous Charging Bull

Published on Thursday, March 23rd, 2017 By volca

An asset management group installed a sculpture of a young girl facing the famous charging bull in New York Citys financial district Tuesday morning.

State Street Global Advisors, the worlds third-largest asset manager, put up the bronze sculpture as part of an effort to call on the 3,500 companies it invests in to increase the number of women directors ahead of International Womens Day. The company, which managed just under $2.5 trillion in assets at the end of last year, said it would vote against corporate boards that do not take steps to increase gender diversity.

We believe good corporate governance is a function of strong, effective and independent board leadership, Ron OHanley, the companys president and CEO, said in a statement. A key contributor to effective independent board leadership is diversity of thought, which requires directors with different skills, backgrounds and expertise. Today, we are calling...

All the moms at my sons school have been gushing about the Cat & Jack line for kids since Target released it last summer. Now theres an additional reason to love the brand:their Strong Like Mom T-shirts that are grabbing the attention of feminist moms everywhere.


Thats right. Strong... Like Mom. Not like Dad or any other boy. Strong like a girl.

The T-shirt is a breath of fresh air for parents amidst the gender normative trucks for boys, ponies for girls aesthetics we usually see in childrens clothing.

While it would be nice if there were no difference between the boys and girls line at all from this brand,...
