Today’s Top Picks: Peace, Clarins and Futbol

By: Gabriela Yareliz

1] Thomas Merton said something along these lines: We cannot have peace with one another because we are not at peace with ourselves. We cannot have peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God.

2] Clarins App en francais

On a Shallow Note

If you thought I was shallow with my Monica Bellucci blip, I have got news.

Elle (FRANCE) just announced a new and free App for iPhones and Androids. It is an App by Clarins (the brand with amazing self tanners) in which there are beauty advisers who can tell you how to improve your look if you send them photos. Imagine! You are walking to work. You take a photo of yourself before an important meeting and someone tells you to put on some lipstick, and ta-da; you look amazing!

It is a genius idea. Practical, but shallow.

3]Euro 2012

Guess who isn’t playing with the France team for Euro 2012?

Yoann Gourcuff-sadness.

4] Top 10 Spoken Languages

Watch the video on Bing 🙂

5] My Friend TED

I love TED talks; I recommend this one. This TED talk is about how we expect more from technology than from each other. (TED is dangerously addictive…. for those who have seen speeches on it know.)

“We seems lonely but afraid of intimacy. Siri, the social network, digital assistants, all of these give the illusion of companionship without the demands of relationship. The path we are seems fraught with paradox and about the most important human matters.”-Sherry Turkle
