This morning I was woken up by the sound of a man on a motorcycle being hit by, and subsequently pinned under, an SUV right outside my apartment. I was then kept awake by the sound of him crying out in pain and fear while waiting for the emergency vehicles to arrive – all while multiple strangers were gathering and taking pictures on their phones. If something so horrific should ever happen to me, I really hope that no pictures of such a vulnerable moment are taken and/or shared. Aside from being gross and morbid, it seems to be a violation of privacy on an unthinkable level.

Also, hug your loved ones and be careful on the road.

Gisele Bundchen makes more money than Tom Brady

I’m sorry, but why is this news? There would never be a headline saying the opposite: “Tom Brady makes more money than Gisele Bundchen.”
First off - talk about enforcing gender stereotypes and the idea that people should assume the man makes more money. But also, everyone knows Gisele is extremely successful in her career and one of the most recognized models in the world. The possibility of her making more money than an NFL quarterback (who, don’t get me wrong, I love) should not be a headline.
Instead the headline should be something more like “Gisele Bundchen Named World’s Highest-Paid Model” and leave it at that. It’s what the article is about, anyway.
