Michelle Arendas and Josh Avsec, two Kent State University students, swiped right to match on the dating app Tinder in September 2014. Since then, they’ve engaged in an epic 21st century love story, texting each other over the course of three years. But they've taken months to reply to each other, giving increasingly creative excuses for the delay. Most surprising: they've never met in person.But that all changed today on “Good Morning America.”“This is a dream come true. I can’t believe I’m seeing her right now,” Avsec, 22, said of the heart-melting moment on “GMA. ...
In the South China Sea, no area is quite so heavily contested as the Spratly archipelago, where five countries occupy various reefs, cays, and islets and watch each other warily. Taiwan occupies the best and largest bit of land, an islet called Itu Aba. According to the Taipei Times, Taiwan’s military recently gave six howitzer cannons to the coast guard, which is charged with defending Itu Aba (also called Taiping Island). Howitzers are big artillery pieces more associated with World War II than with the modern era. Many are installed on Taiwan’s Kinmen island in the Taiwan Strait, with the Chinese city of Xiamen within their range. Supplied by the US, they played an important role during the
As a candidate for president, one of Donald Trump most notable breaks from conservative orthodoxy was his on-the-record support for LGBT rights. At the Republican National Convention, Trump said he’d “do everything in my power to protect our LGBT citizens.” That was after Peter Thiel became the first openly gay Republican to speak at the party’s convention, and after Trump told “the LGBT community” that he’d “fight” for them. Wednesday’s announcement that Trump would bar transgender people from the armed forces was the latest contradiction of that pledge. It couldn’t have been clearer - after casting himself as a pro-gay rights candidate, Trump’s administration had already rescinded protections
Hot summer days conjure images of sleeveless sun dresses and airy tank tops for some, but for others, the heat means sweltering under cardigans and jean jackets. Ashby Vose, stylist and community manager of plus-size styling company Dia&Co , is all too familiar with the problem. The body-positive brand, which offers a personal stylist service that sends clients packages of curated clothes in sizes 14 and up, gets plenty of requests from its plus-size clients for layers and jackets even in the summer. “We hear a lot from our customers and our community about creative ways to hide their arms,” Vose tells Allure . “It got us chatting. We talked about our own experiences with our arms and our preferences for layering up even though it’s hot. … We had to do something to liberate our community, that arms are not a source of shame.” So to encourage women to stop hiding their arms, Dia & Co launched its #DiaARMy Instagram campaign, asking women to flaunt their biceps and triceps and embrace sleeveless styles. The response is gorgeous! Read more from Yahoo Style + Beauty: Follow us on Instagram , Facebook , and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

How apt. In Death Valley, a region extraordinarily hostile to animal life today lie fossils of the oldest mass death so far discovered. On a rocky surface covering about one square metre, and in loose rocks nearby that were once part of the surface, Aaron Sappenfield of the University of California, Riverside, and his colleagues found the remains of 13 jellyfish. The discovery suggests the marine animals behaved in a comparable way to their modern counterparts. But the fossils also hint that environmental conditions at the time were very different from today. About 540 million years ago, in the Cambrian period, Death Valley lay on the edge of an ancient continent, with sandy beaches along its
