Pantone dedicated a new shade of red to menstruation
“An active and adventurous red hue, ‘period’ emboldens people who menstruate to feel proud of who they are. To own their period with self-assurance; to stand up and passionately celebrate the exciting and powerful life force they are born with; to urge everyone regardless of gender to feel comfortable to talk spontaneously and openly about this pure and natural bodily function,” said the vice-president of the Pantone Color Institute Laurie Pressman.

The famous swearing parrots unveiled.... 😳😳😳 #lincswildlifepark #lincolnshirewildlifepark #swearingparrotsLincolnshire Wildlife Park Tuesday, September 29
In a few weeks, the birds learned to swear and laugh, and when one swore, the second began to laugh – it began to resemble a club of elderly workers, where everyone swears and laughs. According to the Wildlife Park administrator, just 20 minutes after the opening, the birds managed to swear at visitors, which greatly offended the latter, so the birds had to be isolated. The swearing ones were removed to an open-air cage inaccessible to visitors. In the future, they will be resettled in different parts of the park so that they at least do not swear together.
