After departing from Destin, Florida, on Tuesday night, an Army helicopter is now the subject of a search-and-rescue mission.

Rodarte & The Rug Company Team Up For Pricy Rug Collection, But We Wish The Mulleavy Sisters Would Design These Affordable Housewares Instead

The Mulleavy Sisters — Kate and Laura — are the brains behind the high-end label Rodarte, whose black booties I would gladly give up limbs to get my hands on. Rodarte just launched a rug collection with The Rug Company and, as to be expected, the pieces in this capsule collection are to-die-for but so not cheap, starting at $1845. Yes, starting.

Lexi Walker Is A Little Girl Who Sang The Nation Anthem And Instantly Became The Next Mariah Carey — VIDEO

Move over Beyoncé! There’s a new National Anthem singing star in town. Her name is Lexi Walker, and she belted out (for realsies too!) the National Anthem at a Real Vs Vancouver Football match recently and it is mind blowing. I don’t know exactly how tall Lexi is, but she can’t be any more than about 5-feet high, judging from the video, and looks like she hasn’t even hit puberty yet. But damn, the girl can SING. If you’re anything like me, someone who, despite sounding like a slowly drowning cat, dreams of someday winning a Grammy, this performance will leave you both riveted (the normal response) and jealous that a tiny little lady has been gifted with such awesome vocal ability.

Fluoridated Water Health Risks Could Include This Unexpected Disorder

There could be a major downside to the fluoride the government adds to your water to help prevent cavities. A study published this week in the journal Environmental Health reports that there could be a correlation between water fluoridation and rates of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). These findings are a big deal as both water fluoridation and ADHD diagnoses continue to rise. 

Sexism Can Be Detected From A Man’s Smile And Word Choice, So Keep Your Eyes Peeled and Your Ears Perked Up

Have you ever gotten close to a male friend or a guy that you were dating, only to later find out that they held some rather sexist beliefs, or did something that set off your feminist alarms? Well, new research has found a way to avoid those unpleasant realizations; apparently, sexism can be detected from a man’s smile and word choice, so you can steer clear of the worst offenders.

7 Early 2000 Songs That Totally Don't Mean What You Thought

The 2000s aren’t usually remembered as a decade of full of pop songs than don’t mean what you think they mean. Because — and I say this with love, as a dedicated fan of all things early aughts, from Ashlee Simpson’s singing career, to painfully flat-ironed bangs, to those matching denim outfits Justin and Britney wore to the VMAs — the pop songs of the early ’00s were not very subtle. I mean, “Sk8r Boi” isn’t secretly about the tragedy of soil erosion, you know?

Emilio Dosal And Kelsey Landers Dance To "Stay With Me" Cover, Emotionally Destroy Everyone In The First Minute — VIDEO

It usually takes a lot to emotionally wreck me before I’ve had my morning coffee, but here I am, possibly drowning my laptop in fangirl tears. Like most of the world, I am starting to nurse a Sam Smith obsession that only gets more ridiculous over time. But you don’t even have to be a Sam Smith fan for this video of two dancers performing to the Boyce Avenue cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” to leave you completely speechless. Emilio Dosal and Kelsey Landers are the two dancers behind this concept piece, and I am not at all ashamed to announce to the internet that after watching this, I am in love with them both.

Jean Paul Gaultier and tea brand Kusmi have teamed up for limited edition tins that will dress up your kitchen counter and can be reused for a variety of purposes! JPG may have ditched his ready-to-wear business, but that doesn’t mean he’s slowing down. Between this and his new Seven and I collection sold at 7/11, it’s clear the designer is simple branching out.

A Malaysia Airlines Towelette, Potentially From Flight 370, Has Washed Up In Australia

Last July, an unopened towelette packet bearing the distinct Malaysia Airlines logo washed up on the west coast of Australia, sparking questions about whether it might be the first piece of wreckage from the missing MH370 flight. The towelette was turned into the local authorities last summer, but the news of its discovery was broken by Australia’s Nine News Tuesday. The news follows closely on the heels of the one-year anniversary of the plane’s mysterious disappearance on March 8, 2014 with all 239 passengers onboard. Authorities in Canberra, Australia, are currently testing the towelette to see if they can link it to the plane, but caution that the chance of establishing any firm link is low.

12 Moments In Zedd's "I Want You To Know" Video With Selena Gomez That Prove He's A Ghost — VIDEO

I was expecting there to be some kind of implicit confirmation of their relationship when Zedd’s video for “I Want You To Know” featuring Selena Gomez dropped today. After all, they’ve been rumored to be dating for months now, and when a musical couple like them is ready for the whole wide world to know they’re together, being featured on each other’s songs is a pretty typical way to go about it. I was expecting to see a stolen kiss or a moment of emotionally-significant eye contact that would make me throw my hands up in the air and say “Aha! I knew it! You two are romance friends!”

Global Warming Is Turning Mummies Into "Black Ooze," Which Is As Pleasant As It Sounds

If concern for your progeny isn’t enough for you to take a stance on climate change, then perhaps concern for your ancestors will do the trick. According to the latest research on the damaging effects of global warming, climate change is causing the world’s oldest mummies to turn into black ooze. Yummy. And before you attribute this delectable detail to spontaneous degradation, or something like that, researchers from Harvard University have suggested that this alarming new development can be attributed to microbes that flourish in increasingly humid climates, which are in turn brought on by rising global temperatures. So not only is climate change ruining the planet for our future, it’s also ruining it for history. 

Lisl Steiner's 'What's Underneath' Video Offers These 9 Brilliant Pieces Of Advice On Style And Beauty

One of the most flattering compliments or most esteemed accolades that someone can receive is to be told they are interesting. It’s somehow more than being deemed funny or cute or smart — which are traits or skills that are either inherent or easily honed in. “Interesting” is something that needs to be cultivated and earned. You can fake [traditional] pretty, intelligent and a whole lot of other things, but the presence or absence of interesting is something that’s very easily apparent. The most recent subject of Stylelikeu’s “What’s Underneath Project” Lisl Steiner is irrevocably an interesting woman.

9 Things That Happen When You're The Writer Of Your Friend Group

It’s hard for some people to believe that being a writer is an actual career path that one can take (and earn money with) after college. Whether you’re a full-time freelancer, budding novelist, aspiring journalist, or just writing a blog as a side project, you’ve probably had to explain your job to friends and family a couple dozen times. 

7 Emma Watson Quotes About Love & Relationships, Because If There's Anyone You Want Advice From, It's Her

Nowadays, it’s sort of difficult to gauge who one should look up to in the entertainment industry. Who we regard as role models is subjective, and hey, we’re all human and we make mistakes, even celebrities who can seem so other worldly. Though arguably, one celeb who hasn’t screwed up yet (and probably never will) is the level-headed Emma Watson. 

Elonë, A Woman In Germany, Is Posting Feminist Messages On Pads Throughout Her City — PHOTOS

Truth: Graffiti is a time-honored tradition, dating all the way back to Ancient Greece. (Although I’m unconvinced what MTA calls scratiti—the physically engraved block letters as made in thick paint, usually reading some variation of a four-letter word—qualifies as dignified or reverent.) However, the practice’s importance amps up in some cases—like when the person holding the can of spray paint has an inspired mission in mind. Street art, however, can (and increasingly often, does) extend way beyond the paint can: Elonë, a woman from Karlsruhe, Germany, is swapping out the paint for pads to make a point about feminism.

Magnetic Putty Eats All The Metal In Its Path, And It's So Hypnotic And Vaguely Terrifying — VIDEO

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be eaten alive by that fat, goopy Pokémon that hid in the sewers? Now we have an approximate visual of what that would be like, thanks to this slow-motion video of magnetic putty in action. Before you start envisioning the innocent, mostly harmless putty you played with as a kid, you should know that this is a far cry from that. Magnetic putty takes on the form of both a liquid and a solid, and attracts itself to metal objects so intensely that it smothers them and puts John Travolta’s overly-touchiness at the Oscars to shame. 

7 Questions About 'Frozen Fever' Poster, Because Are Those Mini-Snowmen Supposed To Be Olaf's Children? — PHOTO

There are only a few days separating us from the release of Disney’s live-action Cinderella — which, as everyone knows, will have a Frozen short called Frozen Fever playing ahead of the film. While I’m sure Cinderella will be a feminist fantasy story that we’ll all be talking about for ages, I don’t think I’m alone in being way more excited to see the continued animated adventures of Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and Kristoff. After all, Season 4 of Once Upon a Time gave us an interesting taste of what could have been, but I want to see Disney’s take on what happened after the closing credits. Now Frozen Fever has a promotional poster to go with the short, and… guys, I have some questions.
