People Start Putting Their Christmas Lights Back Up, Take Social Distancing To The Next Level (23 Pics)

Cities all over the world continue to enforce social distance in one way or the other. But while the authorities are trying to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the pandemic and all the problems that have come with it are taking a real toll on people. So, to cheer themselves and their communities up, some of them are putting their Christmas lights back on.

“My youngest son was bored today and said, ‘Can we put Christmas lights on our tree outside to cheer us up?'” Twitter user Mike Griffin wrote. “Great idea, buddy. Lights are on tonight as a sign of hope and the sweet mind of my 10-year-old.” The Griffins and many more families are turning to social media to share photos of their resurrected holiday displays. Driveways, rooftops, and entire backyards have been illuminated, making the quarantine a little bit merrier.

As of today, there have been 228,000 global coronavirus cases, while US cases soared by more than 40% in just 24 hours. The pandemic has been shaking financial markets, upending local economies and resulting in over 900 deaths worldwide. It’s easy to give in to fear in the face of this crisis, full of uncertainty and unpredictability.

Chuckie 11 hours agoThis post brought tears to my eyes for some reason. With all the bad things happening at a time like these, the humanity just comes out from where its hiding to bring some joy to our lives to give us hope to survive mentally.

However, there is some good news as well. For example, China has reported no new locally transmitted coronavirus cases for the first time since the outbreak, marking a major turning point in the global battle against COVID-19.

In the weeks following the early spread of the virus, its government enacted draconian quarantine measures and travel restrictions affecting hundreds of millions of citizens. In some cities that were hit especially hard, people were unable to leave their apartments for more than a month, while transport was limited or halted altogether. The country really struggled to get where it’s at now. But it did.

Also, researchers from McMaster University and the University of Toronto have isolated the agent within the novel coronavirus, and this should help us to develop better diagnostic tools and, eventually, a vaccine.

A better future is within reach. We just have to work hard to get there. So why not do it under dangling Christmas lights?

Nadine from Saskatchewan, Canada, is very familiar with this initiative. “It was brought on by one of our neighbors, suggesting it on our neighborhood’s Facebook group and then others followed,” she told Bored Panda. “A lot of us can’t turn [the Christmas lights] on because we had a bad hail storm come through two summers ago and we’re still getting work done on our houses. We’d all have them on if it was not the case.”

Nadine lives in one of these houses. But it didn’t stop her from contributing. “I did, however, put on my white LED tree in the front,” she said. “We have a tight-knit neighborhood here. We call ourselves The Cove. We look out for each other and this pandemic will be no different.”

The woman is married to a doctor, so their family is well-aware of the tough situation. “For us, in our house, it’s not a matter of if this virus will get to us, it’s more a question of when because [my husband] may already have unknowingly exposed me and the kids. We have been self-quarantining ourselves since the first case was announced in the province,” she said.

“Neighbors have already offered to get us anything we need. We are now in a state of emergency in the province, with cases doubling overnight. It’s been pretty grim, to say the least in our house. We’ve had tough conversations as to what we are about to face. How we are going to deal when [my husband] gets sick, when I get sick.”

Nadine said her husband is sad for all the patients he’s likely going to lose. So the lights came just when everyone needed them. “When I saw the lights on, it brought me back to Christmas. It brought me back to a time where none of this was happening, a time where we weren’t afraid of what’s to come. It brought me back to the birth of Jesus and the reassurance that he has this under control. It’s in his hands.”

Twitter Users Are Posting Things We Haven’t Thought About Since Elementary School, But Will Instantly Remember (30 Pics)

There’s something about school memories that makes them so vivid and long-lasting, it feels like they happened yesterday. The classic ones like leaving home wearing slippers or failing a math exam usually come back in a sweaty nightmare. Miscellaneous memories like stealing a scented marker from your classmate arrive with a flashback. More emotional ones like an auntie picking you up all worn-out after another day at school can be triggered by a sharp valerian scent that reminds you of her.

But the most peculiar thing about these experiences is that they’re both too specific and too weird to digest. That’s why, when Twitter users started sharing their personal flashbacks from elementary school, people came to the conclusion that we all lived in the same childhood.

Pandas, if any of the posts below ring a bell to you, don’t forget to share your personal take on elementary school in the comments. And after you’re done reading this one, keep going down memory lane with some more school nostalgia here and here.

Typically, our earliest memories begin to form at around the time we’re 2 or 3. From this time on, kids learn how to express their inner emotions and make a coherent sentence. However, there are some dark spots in our memory when it comes to the age of kindergarten or elementary school. Scientists believe that childhood amnesia is to blame.

As soon as you become an adult, it becomes virtually impossible to retrieve early episodic memories. It seems quite paradoxical because the human ability to retrieve childhood memories shouldn’t deteriorate with time if the brain is functioning well and one could be described as healthy.

Modern theorists explain that the key to forgetting lies in the early development of the brain itself, because infants are able to recall information for weeks or even months. The amnesia of early events occurs suddenly over a period of two years, and the younger you are, the more likely you’ll forget things from early days. However, the tendency to forget slows down with age.

With every single reminiscence, we make a repetition in our brain that allows us to keep the episode longer in our memory banks. Walking down memory lane every now and then turns out to be an excellent way to keep the precious moments locked in our brains!

Dr. Phil’s House Goes Up For Sale And It’s The Perfect Proof That Money Can’t Buy Taste

Some celebrities are known for their lavish and extravagant homes that look more like modern art galleries instead of your regular dwelling. Just take talk show host, Dr. Phil, for example. Someone on Twitter recently spotted that his Beverly Hills villa went up for sale and it’s the perfect proof that money can’t buy taste. Not only that – it turns out it’s chock-full of all sorts of weird stuff, and some Twitter users even started a scavenger hunt looking for the most bizarre items in this crazy home.

Looking at the pictures, it’s pretty clear that Dr. Phil is into pretty weird things, ranging from teddy bears with the F word on their chests to weird sculptures of bunnies and gun walls.

Surprisingly, it looks pretty tame from the outside

We can’t help but wonder what the future buyer will do with all of that weird stuff. Maybe just buy the home and turn it into a modern art museum? Just charge $10 at the entrance and we’re sure the house would pay for itself within the end of the year.

People later found out that Dr. Phil doesn’t actually live there – his son 33-year-old son, musician Jordan McGraw does. That explains it – kind of. He even gave a tour of the crazy home a few years back although it has changed a bit since. Oh, and the gun wall is apparently an anti-gun statement.

Rapt Studio Transforms Mid-Century Marina Del Rey Complex into an Airy Tech Hub

PROJECT NAME MDR Truss
LOCATION Marina Del Rey
FIRM Rapt Studio
SQ. FT. 130,000 SQF

Leveling the single-story smattering of 1950s garages and factories was one option. Renovating, repurposing, and enlarging them was another. The former would provide a blank slate, the latter more of a challenge—but more character. Rapt Studio CEO and chief creative officer David Galullo, prolific designer of workplaces for such companies as Google, Twitter, and PayPal, opted to retain all but one of the six brick and concrete-block structures for the Marina Del Rey, California, campus now called MDR Truss. Today, it’s home to Zefr digital advertising, the Bouqs Co., an online farm-to-table flower delivery service, and real estate developer the Bradmore Group, the client that hired Rapt for the 130,000-square-foot project. So enamored with the result, president and CEO David Bohn decided to move the company into one of the buildings.

A site-specific installation by Settlers LA hangs in the Rapt Studio–designed headquarters of Zefr, a digital advertising company in Marina del Rey, California. Photography by Eric Laignel.

 

“David was looking to take advantage of what was here before,” begins Galullo, just off the plane from Milan, where Rapt showcased its debut Salone del Mobile installation Tell Me More. “He and his team understood that these little industrial buildings could actually add up to something pretty.” Rapt was tasked with creating the master plan for MDR Truss: Initial meetings with the client illustrated how the 3-acre site would be used, where cars could park, and how Rapt would work with the landscape architect to plant low-water and native species and create pedestrian pathways, among other essential changes. Bradmore was so impressed with the concept that the initial budget was increased. Ultimately, Rapt added a second floor to one building, de­cks to two of them, cleaned and re-painted all exterior masonry, and relocated entryways and exits and inserted roll-up glass garage doors for more light and better flow in nearly all the buildings. Additional outdoor spaces such as fire pits and a lawn for employee pets even “feel a bit resort,” Galullo notes.

The company occupies four buildings at MDF Truss, an office complex master-planned by Rapt. Photography by Eric Laignel.

 

Rapt was then hired again by Bradmore for its interiors and by Zefr for its offices, which occupy 40,000 square feet across four buildings. “We were morphing the exterior design based on what the interiors needed,” Galullo explains. Because all six buildings were leased prior to the completion of construction, the firm was able to deeply customize the design.

Creating an upgraded space for Zefr meant pushing a company with a start-up mentality—it was founded in 2008 and focuses on YouTube content targeting—into a more sophisticated space. “The idea was like Hey, we still want to be scrappy, but let’s have moments where we remind people that we’re heading in the right direction,” Galullo says. “For us, a brand is about the organization’s attitude, personality, and culture.” The result is a mixture of refined custom sectionals and walnut tables with furnishings from the hipper end of mass retailers and unpretentious, locally focused artwork. “It doesn’t feel like a dorm room, more like your second apartment,” Galullo adds, glancing down from the deck off one of the building’s newly added second floor at the rack of staffers’ sandy surfboards and the Zefr-branded skateboard ramp.

In Zefr’s main building, Rapt took advantage of the 16-foot ceiling with site-specific installations. One is at the entry: a cascade of white ribbons designed by art fabrication company Settlers LA that’s akin to an enor­mous ocean whitecap but that Galullo de­scribes as “kind of flowy.” Neptune Glassworks, another area artisan, pitched its canopy of handblown  glass orbs to Rapt and it ended up above the café, where occa­sional blue walls further nod to sea and sky.

The satin ribbons range from 3 to 30 feet long. Photography by Eric Laignel.

Galullo calls Rapt “transdiscipli­nary, which is like equal measure on every discipline coming together to form something new.” In the case of Zefr, that meant curating an art and furniture offering “that’s an interesting and eclectic blend,” he says. “The last thing we want is for the office to feel like it was decorated to be perfect. People spend a lot of time here, so we focused on the spaces where people are going to hang.” So, for Zefr’s myriad lounge, meeting, and break-out areas, there’s always a duo of lounge chairs, plus a sofa, coffee table, and rug—a homey configuration that differentiates them from the rows of workstations.

The approach also meant eschewing corner offices (although there are private phone rooms in the core of each building as well as traditional conference rooms). One corner did surprise Galullo, however. It’s that outdoor deck space he created off a building’s new second floor. “I was worried it might feel like a cage because we wrapped it into the structure,” he recalls. “But it turned out to be an unexpected nugget.”

The company logo is painted onto the plywood skateboard ramp. Photography by Eric Laignel.

“When we set out on this project, we had to tell the story of both Zefr and the site’s history,” Galullo concludes. “It couldn’t just be about maximizing the number of parking spaces, although we did wrestle with that for quite some time.” In a locale where car culture still rules, that’s saying something.
