Lee jean company is creating clothes that are contoured to flatter your figure.
We’ve all seen the impressive contouring that bronzer can create on faces, but now the art of contouring is being used for a whole new purpose, but one that’s near and dear to our hearts: finding the perfect pair of jeans. Scientists have used contouring to create near-perfect bottoms in Lee’s Body Optix jeans, which make your booty look better by attracting the right amount of light in all the right places.
The company says the visual science creates the illusion of “a perkier backside by lifting and shaping the rear while slimming and lengthening the legs.” According to Lee's website, “laser applied finishes create precise lighting gradients based on ideal body proportions to shape and flatter the body.”
So these jeans don’t just hug your curves, they create a 3D effect on your rear end using light and dark denim shades. And the best part is, they’ll finally be available in the U.S. this summer.
Starbucks CLOSING....for one afternoon
Starbucks will be closing more than eight thousand company-owned stores in the afternoon on May 29th for “racial-bias education.” The training is meant to prevent discrimination to make sure everyone feels safe and welcome.
Of course, this stems from the arrests of two black men at a Philadelphia store that sparked nationwide backlash. According to company officials, nearly 175 thousand Starbucks employees will learn about implicit bias, promoting conscious inclusion and preventing discrimination.
The training will also become a part of the Starbucks hiring process and will be available for other companies to use.
- Meanwhile…Californian Brandon Ward says he asked for the bathroom code at the store in Torrance back in January, but an employee told him he had to buy something first. Moments later, Ward says he saw a white man get the code without buying anything. Ward then confronted the employee and was escorted out by a security guard. Ward posted a video of the altercation, but it didn't gain any traction until two black men were recently arrested at the Philadelphia Starbucks. The Starbucks CEO has apologized to the men in Philly, but has not commented on Ward's
China has unleashed a chicken army to combat its locust problem.
China has announced plans to unleash an army of chickens to combat its locust problem this summer. The northern region of Xinjiang [[SHIN-jang]] is gearing up for what’s expected to be its worst summer yet with the critters given their warmer winter.
You see, locusts typically feed off of crops and other vegetation. According to Yang Zong, an official with the local animal husbandry bureau, around 2,200 chickens are preparing for feeding time. About 2.8-million acres of grassland are expected to get hit with the locusts.
Yang points out that “use of pesticides pollutes the environment,” therefore they’re using the chickens. Herdsmen have been given the birds ahead of the outbreak so they can adapt to the environment. One chicken is reportedly able to eat at least 600 locusts in a day, but they won’t do it alone. The nation is bringing in the reinforcements, aka ducks and other birds, to help the chickens out.
