If you always wanted to be a citizen scientist, here’s your chance: Kinsey Reporter is an app administered by Indiana University at Bloomington that tracks sexual and other intimate behaviours. You download it to your smart phone and then report your activities anonymously to the central data collection site. The project analyses the information and provides different options for data visualisation. You can then explore the data collected by the app yourself and discover new information on subjects as innocuous as public displays of affection and as harmful as unwanted sexual experiences. By zooming into the map, you can see just how much sex is happening in your city.
“David Thibault is only 16 years old, yet somehow when he sings “Blue Christmas” by the late King of Rock and Roll, he sounds EXACTLY like him. When you listen to David, do yourself a favor and close your eyes. This Canadian teen’s voice has that same velvety smooth tone that Elvis’ fans around the world fell in love with…and believe me, it’s VERY hard to imitate!” –via Little Things

Russia’s recently introduced laws against ‘gay propaganda’ sparked controversy all over the world. When Irish singer Hoizer chimed in with his own protest song the people listened. A lot. His song Take me to Church was streamed over 87 million times on Spotify, making it the platform’s most successful single of 2014. The song, which was nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammys, did very well as a video too, it was viewed more than 40 million times on YouTube.
Hozier said: ‘The song was always about humanity at its most natural, and how that is undermined ceaselessly by religious [organizations] and those who would have us believe they act in its interests. What has been seen growing in Russia is no less than nightmarish, I proposed bringing these themes into the story and [director Brendan Canty] liked the idea.’
