A new gym feature idea that may catch on!
While some people would rather die than let people see what they look like after a sweaty workout, there are apparently a lot of folks out there who can’t help but snap a selfie when they are getting their exercise on, and one gym in New Zealand has found a way to cater to those folks.
Christchurch's Anytime Fitness Hornby has now installed what they are calling a “selfie room,” complete with large mirrors and special lighting so members can get that perfect shot of their bulging muscles and glistening sweat to share on their Insta page.
The gym notes that the selfie room actually serves two purposes. Not only does it give members who want to document their fitness progress a private place to do so, it protects those members who may feel uncomfortable with others taking photos in the gym’s public areas.
- The gym’s Facebook page encourages those who like to track their progress with selfies to do so in the specially designed room, noting that such photos can be “super motivating and a great motive to keep pushing harder.” They even asked them to share them online, adding, “we’d LOVE to see your results.”

The NFL has a job opening and it includes going to the Super Bowl.
How can we apply for this job??
If you love watching football, eating and traveling, then listen up. Marriott Hotels and the NFL have teamed up this football season to create what may be your new dream job: Courtyard NFL Global Correspondent. The job involves traveling to football stadiums in London, Mexico City, Minnesota, and Atlanta - for the Super Bowl and the application is open now.
The person chosen for this gig will interview fans of different teams to find “unique and interesting stories of NFL passion,” according to the job description. And because tailgating and stadium food are an important part of the whole football fan experience, you’d be asking hard hitting questions like “Do London sports fans tailgate with fish and chips?”
The application says you need to be passionate and knowledgeable about football and love to travel to qualify. And you’ll also need a flexible schedule since you’ll be heading to London in October, Minneapolis and Mexico City in November, and then to Atlanta in February for the Super Bowl. Want to apply? Check out all the details on the Courtyard Correspondent site.
The Uranus Examiner was announced on Wednesday.
You can't make this stuff up!
Cue the giggling: A small Missouri town has a new newspaper called The Uranus Examiner.
KYTV reports that the newspaper's launch was announced Wednesday, just days after GateHouse Media said it was shuttering Pulaski County's local paper, the Daily Guide.
The new publication's editor, Natalie Sanders, led the Daily Guide before leaving in June to start what she calls a "fun" paper that will include local news and promote the tourist town of Uranus, which is pronounced the way any self-respecting class clown would say it.
Uranus sits along historic Route 66 and is known for quirky attractions, including a fudge shop and the world's largest belt buckle.
Luge Hardman, the mayor of nearby Waynesville, where the Daily Guide was based, says she thinks the "innuendo" surrounding the new publication's name will bring "public ridicule."
