Of the 6.78 billion people on Earth, over 60% of the population belongs to Asia. In the last two decades, the Asia-Pacific population has been growing at a slower rate compared to the rest of the world, according to the United Nations. A recent study by the East-West Center, a research center based in Hawaii, reveals that a great societal change is taking place in various nations of East and Southeast Asia - the marriage and fertility rates are dropping significantly among Asian women.

Accidents happen, but they don't have to send you underwear shopping after every cycle! Stop throwing out your panties and grab a bottle of Ruby's Red Wash. Ruby's Red Wash is an eco-friendly menstrual stain remover made of a mixture of live bacteria cultures. Why didn't anyone think of this sooner? (I miss you, panties.) I used the wash on an old stain on my bedsheets, and it knocked it right out without hardcore scrubbing. And it turns out Ruby's Red Wash is great for cleaning any type of blood.

The Jazz-Age Lawn Party, a fabulous bi-annual, daytime jazz event on NYC's  Governors Island took place earlier in the summer and is currently taking place this weekend, August 20th and 21st. I was lucky enough to attend yesterday and I have to say the outfits were fantastic and the bow-tie clad boys made me swoon.

A little bit '60s psychedelic revival', a little bit 'garage rock', and all 'up in your face'. Here are two clips of the Pandoras performing for the Los Angeles cable show, "L.A. IN!", circa 1985.

More than 75% of American women who are employed work full-time jobs. In the Netherlands, nearly 60% of working women are employed part-time. While it may not be possible to pinpoint all of the reasons for this discrepancy, these are two different statistics, denoting clearly different job cultures. In the United States, most young women are raised to be career-oriented and taught to do whatever it takes to climb the ranks in the workforce.

Think summer camp is only about polar bear swimming and making ugly jewelry out of macaroni noodles? Think again my friend. Straight out of the suburbs of Chicago,  Gadget Camp is a hands on camp that empowers young girls by encouraging careers in the world of manufacturing. Although there are nearly 14 million unemployed Americans today, many consider a career in manufacturing unappealing, and those who don’t are rarely suited for the work. “The perception is that there are no jobs in manufacturing,” said Susan H.

For some reason, I've always been infatuated with redheads. I feel like they command attention, stand out from a crowd and somehow make anything look glamorous. They add a pop of color to even the most boring ensembles! Red hair seems to offer or elicit a special air of confidence and I love that it's sort of different from the norm, especially certain bright colors, but it doesn't feel too crazy. When I did a little research, I found out that almost all my favorite, fabulous redheads were not actually born that way.

Everyone knows that the main reason we have the internet is to watch cat videos. But do you know how those videos are made? In this documentary short, the talented men and women of Kittywood Studios give you a behind-the-scenes look at the process -- from script writing, to animatics, to the final, unforgettable product (you've probably already seen the amazingly realistic work they did in their hit, "Surprised Kitty"). Great work, guys! Can't wait to see what you'll come up with next! [video:http://www.youtube.

According to recent reports by Reuters and others, a yellow baboon has adopted a bush baby in an animal orphanage in Nairobi, and the  baboon is caring for the bush baby as if it is her own child. The baboon carries the bush baby around wherever it goes, and the two happily share meals together. At least, that's one way of looking at it.

It's Friday! Gotta get down…OK, well we all know what comes before Friday, and guess what? If that day didn't excite you before, it will now. Or at least this new mixtape from the Weeknd will.
