The next time you’re going on a leisurely hike… watch out for Goatman! He’s a lot like Batman or Spiderman, except he doesn’t fight crime, have any cool gadgets, or deal with super villains on a daily basis. Okay, I guess he’s really nothing like our summer blockbuster heroes. But, he does wear a goat costume. That should count for something. Earlier this week, a man wearing a goat suit was seen wandering the northern Utah mountains. If that wasn’t weird enough, he also seemed to be living among the actual goats that populate the terrain.

Even though it David won’t be competing in this year’s Games, it seems a Beckham will still be a star at the 2012 London Olympics this August. In June, we reported about The Spice Girls reuniting for the first time since 2008 for the launch of their musical “Viva Forever,” and now it has been officially confirmed that the Spice Girls will officially be reuniting for a two-song performance at the closing ceremony of the London Olympic games on August 12.

She's senator and she knows it. Mindy Meyer, a 22-year-old orthodox Jewish law student from Flatbush is running for New York state senate  on the Republican and Conservative Party lines against Democratic State Sen. Kevin Parker. And these colors don't run- specifically, the color pink.

The passing of Sally Ride (61) yesterday prompted many to remember and celebrate her influence. The first American woman in space in 1983, Ride took her role as a role model to young women seriously, creating the Sally Ride Science foundation in 2001. The program reaches out to boys and girls to interest them in the areas of math and science, fields that fascinated a young Sally enough to make her pursue a career in physics. She died a celebrated physicist and cosmonaut. Sally made her history-changing trip to space in 1983 on the United States Challenger.

It's easy to be jaded about the level of progressive thought in the world when we live in a country where, even if we are not automatically served or understood, our voices can be heard. Unfortunately, in Ireland, this is not the case. Last week, almost 400 protesters gathered outside government buildings without a single news outlet reporting on it. Perhaps it was because they were protesting Ireland's restrictions on abortion, which limit women to only receiving the procedure if their lives are in danger. Five thousand to eight thousand women travel to the UK every year for abortions.

Update: Defense attorneys for the two teenage boys have officially withdrawn their motion to hold Savannah in contempt for tweeting her attackers' names after the case gained worldwide recognition. Phew! Upset by what she felt was a lenient plea bargain for two teen boys who plead guilty to assaulting her and circulating pictures of the incident, 17-year-old Savannah Dietrich turned to Twitter to share her frustration. “There you go, lock me up,” she tweeted, according to the Courier Journal. “I’m not protecting anyone that made my life a living Hell.

Hyatt hotels are currently being boycotted, with great support from feminist and LGBQT activists. Tiger Beatdown reports on the terrible worker abuses fueling this boycott, and I, for one, am pretty horrified by them. Here they are: - Branches around the country have fired many of their workers and brought on contract workers, who are temps but end up staying for months or even years, and don’t get any benefits, get paid less than regular employees, and are not allowed to participate in the hotel’s events. - There has been sexual and racial harassment of employees.

Winstead's collection of essays is an account of her life, which has been influenced by sexism and her struggles against it.

Recently, the oldest bras in the world that we know of were found. The bras are from the 1400s and were discovered in an Austrian castle, The Daily News reports. So now, for the first time, we have proof that women in the Middle Ages were wearing bras. And not only that, but they were sexy ones decorated with lace. Lovely! Before this discovery, it was thought that the bras that appeared in the 1800s were predated only by corsets (the modern bra was patented in 1914 by Mary Phelps Jacob, a socialite in New York).
