The Obashot Trend- A New Popular Posture for Photoshoots in Japan

There is a wierd Japanese trend going on around twitter called “Obashot”. Obashot (pronounced Obaa-shot) is the posture in which comedian, Ariyoshi Hiroiki, started. “Oba” is short for “Obasan”(Obaa-san), which means middle-aged lady in Japanese.

Obasans usually pose a certain way in photos and Ariyoshi started to mimic their postures when he was having his photo taken. Now, the “Obashot” is becoming popular among young people on twitter.

Here are some hilarious “Obashots”!

Starbucks Delivery is Coming Soon(in 2015)!

Remember that potentially game-changing, order-ahead app Starbucks has in the works? Well, it just got a whole lot more exciting: Sometime in the near future, the app will also include integration with a brand-spanking-new Starbucks delivery service.  You heard me — Starbucks on demand, delivered right to your door, or office, or wherever else you happen to be. This can only mean one thing: Higher beings exist, and they like coffee just as much as we do.

8bd4c050-4332-0132-0a8c-0eae5eefacd9

According to AP via HuffPo, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced the delivery plans during a conference call on Thursday. The service will be available to those enrolled in the chain’s loyalty program; we won’t see it until the end of 2015, but when it does finally arrive, it’ll be rolled into the mobile app set to debut in Portland, OR next month.

So far, the selling points for the app have been the ability to order coffee before you arrive at the store and pay your phone, both of which are great options — but the delivery service? Man. That really takes the whole thing to the next level.

Now if you don’t live directly in the city, you won’t have to worry about driving 15 minutes away when the craving a specialty drink!

Should You Work For Free?

Is it always a bad idea to work for free?

Usually, the answer is no, but occasionally it could be yes. Jessica Hische’s handy flowchart should help you decide. It’s divided into four main types of jobs, and from there you snake around answering various pertinent questions—and hopefully reaching a satisfactory conclusion to your particular situation.
