This Guy Creates Miniature Versions Of Places He Sees In His Dreams

If  you’re anything like me, you forget your dreams the moment you wake up. That seems to be the case for must people, but not Vatsal Kataria. He is photographer from India who not only has vivid memories of his dreams, but goes and recreates miniature versions of them. 

He explained his process on Bored Panda: “I created miniature versions of the places I saw in my dreams. It took me about two months to create all of them. I saw these places in my dreams and it was a bit challenging to turn my imagination into reality but the whole process was fun and awesome. I used very basic materials for this personal project and I hope you’ll like them.”

Fans Of ‘Star Trek’ Are Furious About The New Series Being ‘Too Diverse’

If there’s anything shut in nerds love complaining about online, it’s women and people of color ruining their childhood by starring in their favorite franchises. The new trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, which is premiering on CBS this fall, kicked up a brand new brouhaha among all the “alphas” on Twitter, who are mad because the show features two women of color in prominent roles. 

Michelle Yeoh plays the Starship captain and Sonequa Martin-Green is her first officer. 

The New Yorker reported that the comments on the YouTube posting for the trailer was full of alt-right trolls using their special lingo to question casting choices that centered women and POC, like “Where is the alpha male that has balls and doesn’t take crap from anyone?,” and  “Is everything going to have to have females in every … thing?”

Yes. Women are in everything in real life too, look around. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of these guys haven’t left the basement in awhile:

Luckily, there are still some fans out there who remember that Gene Roddenberry wanted Star Trek to be a place that championed diversity, even if his efforts seems outdated in 2017:

Can you believe that people are still as racist as they were in the sixties, and also that we’re still fighting with Russia? Martin-Green was asked to respond to the racist controversy brewing online, and she responded with all the grace and intelligence that you could hope for in a first officer. She even seems to have compassion for these ding-dongs.

“Well, I would encourage them to key into the essence and spirit of Star Trek that has made it the legacy it is — and that’s looking across the way to the person sitting in front of you and realizing you are the same, that they are not separate from you, and we are all one,” Martin-Green told Entertainment Weekly.“That’s something Star Trek has always upheld and I completely believe that is why it’s been a mainstay in society in the hearts of so many people for so many decades. I would encourage them to look past their opinions and social conditioning and key into what we’re doing here — which is telling a story about humanity that will hopefully bring us all together.”

Well said.

Snapchat Releases ‘Maps’ Feature That Reveals Location Of Your Friends

The past few days, Snapchat has been launching a new feature that lets other people find out exactly where you are at any given moment. Snap Maps lets you and your friends share your location in real-time, with frightening accuracy right down to the street you’re on.

The map will also show your friends, and group your friends together, if they’re close enough that it seems like they’re possibly doing something together. 

Unsurprisingly, parents are already concerned about the feature. “Snapchat has introduced a new tracker in the update where you can view the exact location of your friends,” reads a viral post by parent Pat Ramsey. “It can give you the area, town, and street and if you zoom in enough, it shows the house on the street layout.” 

And younger social media users have their concerns too, although it’s for a far different reason. 

If you’d rather not have people trace your every step, you can opt out. To do this, open Snapchat and pinch the screen as if you were zooming out. This will launch Snap Maps, and if it’s your first time opening the new feature, you’ll be given the chance to enable ghost mode. You can enable or disable ghost mode at any time by clicking the gear icon in the top right corner of Snap Maps.

Bill Cosby Plans To Tour This Summer With A Talk On Avoiding Sexual Assault Charges

Though it’s only been six days since the sexual assault case against Bill Cosby was declared a mistrial, his PR team has already come up with the most tasteless way to spend the next few months—on a speaking tour about avoiding sexual assault charges. Cosby’s publicist Andrew Wyatt announced to Fox News affiliate WBRC on Wednesday that Cosby is being invited to speak to “young people” at town halls across America, specifically about the statute of limitations. Of the dozens and dozens of women who have accused Cosby of drugging and assaulting them, almost none came forward in time to prosecute. Cosby is not warning people to come forward sooner, he’s “educating them” on what their rights are, I guess.

Another Cosby spokesperson, Ebonee Benson, told WBRC, “Laws are changing. The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended. So this is why people need to be educated. A brush against the shoulder, anything at this point, can be considered sexual assault and it’s a good thing to be educated about the laws.”

A brush against the shoulder? You can tell from that short statement that Cosby’s discussion of his experiences the last few years won’t reflect the actual accusations he faced, which were considerably harsher than a misunderstanding in a crowded room. Wyatt told Deadline on Thursday that lots of cities have already reached out to them about the tour. He will definitely be stopping in Birmingham, possibly Detroit and Chicago, too, unless someone steps in and stops this horrendous idea. Plenty of people are mad about it, so that could happen:

The prosecuting lawyer in Cosby’s case, Gloria Allred, also spoke with Deadline, and suggested that Cosby’s plans are even more sinister than they are obtuse.

“Mr. Cosby’s so-called workshops appear to be a transparent and slick effort to attempt to influence the jury pool from which jurors will be selected for his second criminal trial,” she said.

“Under the circumstances,” Allred continued,  “Mr. Cosby should not be conducting sex assault workshops, but if he does do them, then the best advice he can give to those attending is that if you do not drug and sexually assault women, then you need not worry about being charged with a crime.”

Sounds like all the advice anyone needs.
