Gatorade Severs Relationship With Tiger Woods

Tiger's woods are burning down

Gatorade announced late Friday that they will not remain a sponsor for the troubled golfer. Being the third company, behind AT&T and Accenture, to drop Woods, this particular loss is especially significant because of Gatorade’s almost ubiquitous association with sports. As another sponsor chooses to abandon the sinking Tiger ship, it seems very uncertain if Woods will ever regain his former popularity.

Alright, it’s Black History Month and that means it’s time to celebrate the pivotal cultural, scientific and political achievements of some of America’s most important individuals. (Sounds kind of stale doesn’t it?) Among the lauded are the usual suspects: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, etc…but what about those other guys? The ones that changed history by not only combating against American racism, but also redefining and tweaking American style in ways that are still relevant today. The blog, Street Etiquette has teamed up with GQ to present a feature entitled, The Birth of Cool: 20 Black Style Pioneers, which presents to us twenty individuals who had pivotal roles in defining the sartorial image of the modern black man. Finally, a refreshingly new perspective in teaching history.

If animals are doing it, then why not humans?

Is homosexuality natural? This is a question that has been debated a good while throughout human history and one that is very relevant in modern day America. Esquire may have provided some more controversial evidence in this polarizing issue in their feature that profiles 11 species who have been observed to partake in homosexual behavior. Read it here

Even though 808s and Heartbreaks was released back in 2008, that hasn’t stopped Kanye West from releasing another video off of the album. Directed by Nabil Elderkin, who also worked with West on “Paranoid” and “Welcome to Heartbreak”, the video is entirely CG and is a little reminiscent of the first Lord of The Rings film. I don’t know if that’s a good thing yet.
