5 Hotels With Unique Sleep Programs

Posted on 30 June 2012 by Funny Picture Daily

Filed under: , , ,

rszsetai 5 Hotels With Unique Sleep Programs Funny PictureAny traveler will tell you that a good hotel bed is a key component of traveling. Hotels have recently gotten wise, hawking their beds, pillows and sheets on their websites as well as via new programs designed to help you sleep better – anything to save us from Ambien.

Swissotel Berlin – The Science of Sleep
Swissotel Berlin just announced a new sleep package developed by somnologist Dr. Michael Feld. They say you can achieve “bio-psycho-physiologic regeneration” through techniques like light therapy, power napping, mountain-air breathing, aromatherapy, special nutritional supplements and a sound pillow. On request, a polysomnography (detailed sleep analysis) can be booked in combination for 60 Euro per reservation. The package includes:

o. wake-up and calm-down drink
o. bright-light-lamp session or light-to-go headset in the morning
o. aromatherapy in the morning and evening
o. use of PowerNap Lounge
o. use of mountain-air generator
o. sound pillow at night

The Benjamin - Sleep Concierge
Midtown New York’s The Benjamin has the city’s only Sleep Concierge, an in-room sleep menu and a 12-choice pillow menu. Guests can enjoy:

· Complimentary consultation with the in-house Sleep Concierge, who can recommend the right pillow for guests’ sleep patterns or have a bedtime snack sent up

· The Benjamin’s hallmark 12-choice Pillow Menu (any combo of pillows delivered right to your room)
· Accommodations with everything needed to set the stage for a perfect night’s sleep: blackout drapes, double-paned soundproof windows and The Benjamin Bed, a Serta(R) mattress created exclusively for the hotel

The Setai Fifth Avenue - Spa treatments that promote sleep
The Setai Fifth Avenue’s “City That Sleeps” program plays off of New York’s famous nickname. The hotel’s Auriga spa offers a variety of treatments that are timed to the phases of the moon. Playing off that theme, the “City That Sleeps” program includes a nighttime in-room massage and turndown service with aromatherapy to aid in restful sleep. Guests also receive a calm-inducing elixir crafted from local ingredients.

Operation The Heat Is On 82 found on Flickr

Posted on 30 June 2012 by Funny Picture Daily

Check out these Hilarious images:

Operation The Heat Is On 82
4780643625 f7aa7d32a0 o Operation The Heat Is On 82 found on Flickr Funny Picture

Image by Anonymous9000
Highoverlord’s "Trollwife" from two years prior at the first Sea Arrgh protest made an unexpected appearance and was batshit hilarious. When she heard one protester whisper to another this was the one who assaulted an Anon two years before she flipped out and started screaming. After some hilarious nonsense from her she walked out in to moving traffic, almost getting herself hit, before retreating back to the sidewalk. Of course there’s always the possibility she’s just a random loon, bu there will be LULZY video of this encounter to follow. In the mean time the minor assault incident 2 years prior can be viewed at the very start of this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1ug6VRb3tU&feature=player_em…!

July 2010 was the 30th consecutive month of peaceful global protests against the scientology cult’s criminality and human rights abuses. With our brutal Florida summers now in full swing and the heat being put on scientology from multiple fronts this summer Clearwater, Florida went with Operation: The Heat is On. Recently in the Tampa Bay area the St. Petersburg times continued it’s investigative expose on scientology with front page coverage detailing coerced abortions among other things. Expect more on that front shortly. Also in Tampa Bay new weekly interviews with ex-scientologists are being aired on Hillsborough Community College’s Hawk Radio 1520 AM. In Australia Senator Nick Xenophon secures inquiry in to a public benefit test for charities and religion, which if adopted will specifically challenge the cult’s charitable status there. In Italy the authorities raided the cult’s Org in Turin for nine hours. Investigators are said to have found secret archives with files on magistrates, policemen, journalists, and relatives of former followers. And of course there’s several pending lawsuits by former members against the cult for human trafficking, forced abortions, etc.

But no where is the heat being put on the scientology cult as much as Australia.

Additionally, two long time, high level cultists blew in the last couple weeks:
Marsha Pearlman Sorensen
Karen De La Carriere/Jentzsch, the former wife of apparently missing (read: RPF’ed) cult president Herber Jentzsch.

All faces of those unmasked are blurred to protect them from the cult’s "Fair Game" policy of harassing it’s critics. These are brave people of all ages and walks of life, standing shoulder to shoulder with ex-Scientologists to bring the truth TO YOU.

But don’t take my word for it, educate yourself about what TIME Magazine called "The Cult of Greed and Power":

Image by maureen_sill
these are two photos of a short series i’m doing of my parent’s house, the house i spent my teenage years in
the stupidest part of my life in! it is to document bullshit suburbia, un altered and honest
hilarious and cruel and painful and above all, unecessary and stupid and impractical
but home

they are moving next year, to either buffalo new york or indianoplis indiana depending on where my dad gets sent for his job so this is my last summer here for sure
i don’t want to think about it
because i don’t have to think about it
so i will just take pictures because i want to remember it the way it was, the way it always will be to me kind of

this is the pantry in the basement
a lot of it is home canned food from my grandpa’s farm
there is a shitty organization system
fuck it
i don’t feel like explaining the significance of this to myself because i already get it
i don’t need to develop this thought further and i don’t really want to so

tonight at work when i was cleaning up my coworker recited a poem to me
she wears combat boots to work and all black and has a lot of tattoos
she recited a poem to me about a tarantula
i was feeling awkward at first
a girl who does not stop talking about gothic painters and shit
telling me a poem about tarantulas
i tried hard not the laugh at the idea of this
except, i couldn’t laugh, about three minutes into the poem
because i realized
she fucking LOVES this poem
if she remembered this much of it, reciting directly
i stop dusting and
listen for a minute
the poem starts out fucking stupidly
it is a nature poem in the beginning and i do not like nature poetry
it is about the beauty of a tarantula
and i am thinking, "ok. big deal"
in my stupidly subconsciously arrogant post-teenage brain
and she goes on and on and then she says something like
"when it rains a lot it scares the tarantulas right out of the trees" and then she looks at me and says
"if you are the kind of person who believes that ugly things should not die just because they are ugly then you should build a swimming pool in your yard and craft life preservers for the tarantulas and collect them in the mornings after big storms and set them free, and then after you set them free the tarantulas will not bother you anymore because they will remember that you loved them and they will tell their friends that you loved them and then you will throw them life buoys and they will throw you life buoys"
i looked at her as she recited this hugely long poem with a little smile on my face
it was silly, this poem was sort of dumb but also sort of pretty
i didn’t say that though
i just said, "that was nice. thank you"
when she was done and while the poem was a little okay but mostly kind of dumb what i really enjoyed was seeing how much she enjoyed it, that is what i really liked and what i thought was actually poetic and what was actually pretty
she put her arm around me in the new fiction section and told me i was nice
that is when i laughed a little in my brain and started dusting again and moved down the aisle and changed the subject
i said, what is your favorite series of books
and she followed me for two more aisles while i dusted, telling me about science fiction fantasy novels
then she started talking about harry potter and this is when i couldn’t take it anymore and actually laughed out loud
i felt bad but i wasn’t laughing at her and she knew that
i was just laughing at the situation
and i smiled and said, yeah i remember the day the seventh book came out, i heard this place was nuts
she said yeah i worked, it was dumb
i said, i’m sorry
she said, i’m not, cause when i went home i started reading the book and then i stopped reading the book because all i could think about was that this was probably one of the first times in human history when millions and millions of people were all reading and experiencing the same book at the exact same time
and i said, yeah
and then i said i like that thought
and she said, do you think that will ever happen again
and i grinned and said
maybe if you write a book about tarantulas in life preservers or raccoons inside of minivans with airbag systems
and she didn’t get it and i didn’t expect her to
but it was hilarious to me
and i laughed forever
and i felt alone and i felt
happy

Is Twitter The New Travel Agent?

Posted on 30 June 2012 by Funny Picture Daily

Filed under: , , , ,

travelagent2 Is Twitter The New Travel Agent? Funny PictureHave you used a travel agent in the last year to plan or book a vacation? How about a social media website like Twitter? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “…the ability of travelers to research vacations and book their own trips using the internet is expected to continue to suppress demand for travel agents.”

More and more, travelers are turning to Twitter to make their travel plans. What’s great about Twitter is you can interact with people, regardless of whether you follow them or they follow you. Additionally, you can search for information based on a topic with a simple hashtag. For example, if you’re going on an around-the-world trip, you can search the hashtag #rtw. You can also post your own questions and hashtag the tweet, to make it easier for knowledgeable travelers to find your questions.

Paradise Regained: Revisiting La Colombe d’Or In St.-Paul-de-Vence, France

Posted on 30 June 2012 by Funny Picture Daily

Filed under: , ,

cote dazur june 2012 125 Paradise Regained: Revisiting La Colombe dOr In St. Paul de Vence, France Funny PictureJune 28, 2012; at La Colombe d’Or, St.-Paul-de-Vence:

Conjunction of memory and moment: Nineteen summers ago I sat in this limestone-terraced restaurant in the medieval marvel of St.-Paul-de-Vence, experiencing a time-stopping, life-enlarging afternoon that has become iconic for me. Now I am back, my journal opened to a page as white as the brilliant sunlight that splashes over everything here, and then to a much earlier page, all blue scribbles and a fading blush of Provencal wine.

I am ensconced under a white parasol at a red bouquet-brightened table, looking out on a somnolent scene of green hills and straw-colored houses with terra-cotta roofs.

I have just finished a truffle salad – so redolent I felt transported before taking even a bite – and now I’m sipping a chilled vin rosé, eating buttery bites of crusty-tender baguette, and sliding ineluctably into heaven once again.

I feel like I’m in a Matisse canvas – bright white flagstones and sun umbrellas, green hills, red roofs, blue sea and sky. Then the sun dapples and it’s an Impressionist scene, a Renoir moment as the maitre d’ ceremoniously ushers diners to their tables and they exclaim at seeing old friends — “You’re here! Yes, you too!” — kiss-kiss, take their seats, and sigh. The rosé flows, and time slows.

The waiter appears and — just as nineteen years before — places before me with a flourish an artful platter of grilled sea bream, dauraude royale.

Bon appétit, monsieur,” he kindly purrs, and pours some more wine.

Around me is a symphony of sounds: the clink of silverware on china, the splash of wine into glasses, the mellifluous laughter and multilingual chatter of diners in summery clothes.

An American family of three sits at the table in front of me, and I lean forward to recommend the truffle salad. They are from Napa Valley, it turns out, an hour’s drive from my home, and we exclaim at the wonder of meeting people so close so far away – and the sheer joy of sharing such a singular place on such a singular day.

The family to my left joins the conversation. They are from Newport Beach, in southern California, and have made the pilgrimage here from a cruise ship docked in Monaco for the day. Soon a woman appears at my shoulder, smiling. “Ojai,” she says, and then from the table behind me, a voice trills, “San Francisco!”

2012 Tour De France Begins Today!

Posted on 30 June 2012 by Funny Picture Daily

200px tourdefrancelogo.svg 2012 Tour De France Begins Today! Funny PictureCycling’s premiere event, the Tour de France, gets underway today with the world’s best riders preparing for another challenging race. This year’s Tour promises to be an exciting one as the teams go head-to-head through 20 grueling stages that culminate on July 22 with their arrival on the Champs Elysees in Paris.

The competition for the famed Maillot Jaune, or Yellow Jersey, which is worn throughout the competition by the race leader, should prove to be an interesting one. Former Tour champ Alberto Contador, widely considered the best cyclist in the world, is out of the race while serving a controversial drug suspension. His chief rival, Andy Schleck, is also out after suffering a fracture to his back in the Criterium du Dauphine at the start of June. This opens the door for any number of riders to claim victory in Paris, including defending champ Cadel Evans and Bradley Wiggins of the U.K. They’ll be pushed by Ryder Hesjedal of Canada, Robert Gesink from the Netherlands and Frank Schleck of Luxembourg.

When the race begins later today it will be on the streets of Liège where the cyclists will ride a short 6.4-kilometer (4-mile) Prologue that will determine the preliminary rankings before heading into the first road stage tomorrow. Stage 1 will be a mostly flat and fast affair covering 198 kilometers (123 miles) between Liège and Seraing. This will give the Tour’s sprinters a chance to stretch their legs before heading into the mountains in the later stages of the race.

The course designers did a fine job of mixing up the challenges this year. The race begins with the traditional flat stages, but eventually gives way to tougher medium and big mountain stages, which is where the race is usually won and lost. Two individual time trials will also go a long way towards determining who will wear the Yellow Jersey in Paris in three weeks time.

You can follow all of the action on the Tour de France website, where daily updates show rankings, stage results and individual highlights. For cycling fans, it is going to be an exciting event.
