The burkini ban in some French coastal towns continues to stoke controversy all over the world. Many people regard the bans, now overturned in certain municipalities, as sexist, Islamophobic and counterproductive to assimilating Muslims into the country and treating them with respect.
Now, Marie-Shirine Yener, who goes by Maeril and is a 21-year-old artist and illustrator from Paris, has created an illustrated guide for bystanders who see Muslims who are being harassed.
It's been shared thousands of times on Tumblr, with more than 50,000 notes and counting, and for good reason.
Senior pranks are so last year, people.
No, according to Twitter, the new creative trend is letting high school seniors paint their parking spaces, at least at at West Orange High School in Florida.
As you can see from this drone photo, almost every single spot is turned from drab pavement into a work of art.
There are certainly “creative” jewelry options out there. Heck, people have been known to even wear their loved one’s ashes.
And now there's something out there for the woman who wants to keep her love of lactation close her, well, breast — jewelry made out of breast milk, one would assume her own.
Billboards and advertisements have one job — to get your attention and to hopefully get you to buy a product or change your behavior.
But sometimes they catch your attention for a completely different reason, and that’s because they’re placed in an unfortunate position for the advertisers, but fortunate for those of us who need a laugh.
I hope so.
Twelve steps forward…
…one step back.

There are numerous examples of disabilities that aren’t necessarily visible to the public eye and those people have been called out for using a handicap parking space or disabled bathroom. It’s unfortunate and frustrating, but it happens.
That's why ASDA, a supermarket chain in the United Kingdom owned by Walmart, made a change to the signs on their bathrooms, reminding the public that invisible disabilities do exist.
The charity Crohn’s and Colitis UK shared the change on their Facebook page, and the comments of praise reinforce how important something like this can be.
