Omega Sunrise

1 Share
Omega Sunrise Capturing this sunrise required both luck and timing. First and foremost, precise timing was needed to capture a sailboat crossing right in front of a rising Sun. Additionally, by a lucky coincidence, the background Sun itself appears unusual -- it looks like the Greek letter Omega (Ω). In reality, the Sun remained its circular self -- the Omega illusion was created by sunlight refracting through warm air just above the water. Optically, the feet of the capital Omega are actually an inverted image of the Sun region just above it. Although somewhat rare, optical effects caused by the Earth's atmosphere can make distant objects near the horizon -- including the Sun and Moon -- look quite unusual. This single exposure image was taken over the Mediterranean Sea just over two weeks ago near Valencia, Spain.

‘The Borgias’ Actor Francois Arnaud: ‘I’ve Always Considered Myself Bisexual’

1 Share

Francois Arnaud, the Canadian actor who stars as Cesare Borgia on Showtime’s The Borgias, has come out as bisexual in his Instagram story ahead of Bi Visibility Day this Wednesday. Arnaud, who also played Tonny Castelli on UnReal and played Antonin Rimbaud in Xavier Dolan’s I Killed My Mother, currently stars in NBC’s Midnight, Texas.

A post shared by Francois Arnaud (@francoisarnaud) on

Said Arnaud in his story: “Last week, I was chatting with work friends, and as I brought up a trip I’d taken with an ex-girlfriend, I asked myself —for the ten-thousandth time— how to tell such a story without making it seem like that was the whole story of me.”

“I’m sure many bisexual guys feel the same and end up doing as I did: letting other people’s assumptions of straightness stand uncorrected,” Arnaud added. “Perhaps out of fear of oversharing. Under the guise of privacy, maybe. Probably because ‘masculinity’ is a most fragile currency, ready to nose-dive at the first sign of vulnerability or difference. And because it’s really f**king scary to give up your privilege. Without a doubt because stigmas of indecisiveness, infidelity, deception and trendiness are still clinging to bisexuality.”

“But here’s the thing,” Arnaud continued. “Silence has the perverse effect of perpetuating those stereotypes, making bi guys invisible, and leading people to doubt that we even exist. No wonder it’s still a chore to acknowledge bisexuality without getting into lengthy explanations. So yes, labels are frustrating and words, imperfect. But I’ve always considered myself bisexual. Not confused or trying to look edgy. Not disloyal. Not ashamed. Not invisible. Happy #bivisibilityday this Wednesday.”

There's really nothing better than seeing our best furry friends be turned into memes. Something about dog memes holds true power, awarding them their status as some of the funniest memes out there.

Could it be because we just love dogs and it's enough for us to see a dog doing its puppy eyes at us for us to melt? Yes, it's possible.
