What an amazing innovation! The Kit Bike by Lucid Design has created a conceptual “bike in a bag” that can quickly be dismantle into parts to fit into a backpack. The project received a Red Dot 2014 Design Award earlier this month.
The only problem is that Lucid Design currently has no plans to produce the bike, but may consider it in the future. So fingers crossed!
“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”

This inspiring commercial made by Always will hopefully change the way you think!
Esther Honig, a 24-year-old radio journalist in Kansas City, Missouri, came up with an idea to show the world how people around the globe define female beauty.
She sent a self-portrait to Photoshoppers in different countries with a request to Photoshop image of herself by country’s fashion magazines trends. The results are incredible!
Esther will continue with her project as long as she can. “There’s so much to be told through this experiment,” she says. “It’s me, but it’s not me. It’s everyone.”
