Getting it off your chest

Where do you even begin with a topic like this? Phil Hansen's wonderfully provocative iReport is a response to a controversial Facebook policy regarding exposed nipples in profile pictures. Breastfeeding mothers, in particular, have been up in arms because they do not feel feeding a baby is obscene. Hansen's first post here has become one of the most popular stories ever submitted on the site. The production features a time-lapse of him making a mosaic photo of himself out of tiny pictures of his own (male) nipples. He even posted a follow-up video after he says the nipple profile shot was taken down. The story is part of a series of news-related art pieces he is planning to create under the banner "Art Happenings." We were so proud of our community when we saw how the subject matter was received. A thought-provoking discussion about public versus private space was taking place on iReport.com. Those who disagreed with the content spoke out and made their feelings known, and many folks rallied around Hansen's story and spoke out about their feelings. The cheeky topic served as a vehicle to get ideas to the masses, and the footage itself made for an interesting few minutes if nothing else. When else will you see a grown man with six nipples? On that note, we hope to see what interesting stories you have, um, up your sleeves. Are you planning to do a newsy art project of your own? What subjects and suggestions do you have in mind after viewing Hansen's piece? Please share your thoughts with us and tell your side of the story.

President elect Barack-Obama is a distinguised orator, and finally it appears that after many years of irresponsible leadership in government, we (as a people, as a nation) can feel a sense of hope.  After many years of corporate greed, irresponsibility, mis-management, and de-regulation corporate America will be held accountable.  To all the Robber Barons of today:  all good things come to an end.

How depraved can a people get; when a mother feeding a baby is less than a beautiful sight; evil be, to he whom evil thinks! We have a lot of depraived minds in this world.

There is someone who keeps adding multiple i reports under doc-180558.

It is currently not available. I refuse to open the i-reports as they have so many in my e-mail box. That it is not interesting to even take the time to open them. Please check up on this. I can't write you as hotmail isn't my account.

I listen and am still not impressed. He says a bunch of nothing but feel good empty statements.

I was driving while listening to President Obama being sworn into office, and it was during his oath that, for the first time in my life, I had a feeling of being completely equal to everyone else in America. This feeling moved me so much that it brought me to tears. I hoped with all my heart that everyone else felt the same emotion...

Let us talk about the Governor of Illinois: I think they

should give him a medal. Do you have any idea what the

price of drugs are in Canada vs America? So what if he

is ruff and wacky...look what he has done for the poor

in that State. Could it be the drug companies of America

want him gone? Again I say give him a medal...

Food Stamp Story

Sean, the lady who took you shoping did you wrong.

#1 rule: Almost everything you need is around the perimiter of the store. Only go into the isles for specific items ie canned tuna, toilet paper. Prepared and packaged and canned foods just eat up your money. They're not very healthy for you either.

 

#2 rule:  Think in terms of meals not just unrelated items. Each meal needs a main dish - usually meat, a vegetable - fresh or frozen, never canned, a carbohydrate - potato - real potatos not instant, pasta not prepared, do it yourself, rice white or brown, not prepared. You're right about the fruit, it's a luxury.

 

#3 rule: Most important: Never go shopping when you're hungry.
