You look just like your father: split face portraits of family members
Ulric Collette is a photographer from Quebec. He studied art and graphic design at school and currently works as an art director for Collette, an advertising studio in Quebec City.
In this series, called Genetic Portraits, Ulric splices together portraits of family members to explore genetic similarities.
From parents and their children, to twins, siblings and cousins, the series is fascinating, and just a little bit spooky.
The project was shortlisted for a Cannes Lion.
Visit genetic.ulriccollette.com to see the entire collection.
In return Amazon Publishing will own the global publication rights to the works, says the announcement.
I know, this is old, but I’d like to re-open some discussion about this:
This is a news report about a video on youtube of 3 girls attacking an 11 year-old boy and holding him down and stripping him naked in public. What I want to talk about are three things:
1) At the beginning of the video you can clearly hear a girl laughing as she says, “Dude, we’re like raping him.” So here we have a girl, thinking it’s funny and confessing to it on camera that she is partaking in a sexual assault.
2) They boy is really screaming and crying and freaking out, and the girls are really having a hard time holding him down, so it’s not like this was all in fun, this was malicious from the get-go. Why then is it called, “A PRANK THAT SOME SAY WENT TO FAR”?! Really, cause if that happened to a girl, that would be sexual assault. Not a prank.
3) WHY IS THE MOM NOT PRESSING CHARGES, AND WHY IS THE PUBLIC OKAY WITH HER NOT PRESSING CHARGES? This woman is fucking stupid and unfit to parent. This is not funny, a prank, a joke, or kids being kids. This is horrible, malicious and humiliating. I wouldn’t be surprised if this kid ends up either killing himself, or having some serious trauma for the rest of his life.
This is rape culture. This is the public tolerating sexual abuse on boys at the hands of girls, this is the public calling sexual assault “a prank”. This is a mother thinking no punishment is necessary for the girls who sexually assaulted her boy.
Well, his mother may not think there should be punishment for these three girls: BUT WE DO. I want to see these girls punished for their actions. I want to see them stand before a court and answer for their behavior. I want to see them re-watch that video and listen to their rape jokes and then try to explain how it was, “just a joke.”
This is unacceptable, no matter who it’s done by or who it’s done to. Society should not tolerate this bullshit.

Science + Dessert = Awesome
Rhiannon is a self-taught cook located in Melbourne, Australia who shares her culinary adventures with a blog entitled Cakecrumbs. This beautiful Earth Structural Layer Cake is her most recent creation and was made for her sister:
“A little while ago, my sister approached me with an idea. She’s doing an education degree, and her and her friends had to give a series of lessons on the geological sciences to a class of primary school kids. One of their lessons involved teaching the kids about the structure of the Earth. One of her friends came up with the idea of presenting a model of the Earth made out of cake. So my sister asked me if I could make a spherical cake with all the layers of the Earth inside it.
I told her I couldn’t do it. “How do you get a sphere inside a sphere inside a sphere?” I recall saying. “Oh yeah,” she replied, realising what it would involve.
I spent the rest of the afternoon thinking about it. I don’t admit defeat. Ever. But especially not with cake. Nothing is impossible is pretty much my baking motto, so to say this cake was impossible left me feeling weird. There had to be a way. A way that didn’t involve carving or crumbing the cake. I kept mulling it over until I had a breakthrough.”
Nothing is impossible where cake is concerned! Visit Cakecrumbs find out how Rhiannon created this tasty model of our home planet.
