On a recent trip to Iceland, Montpelier, France-based photographer Sarah Martinet had the opportunity to take an aerial tour of the land in a plane with open windows, resulting in these stunning photos that showcase the country’s extreme natural beauty from a unique, bird’s-eye view.

Spend 7 minutes of your life watching this show on gendered marketing

This is brilliant. I specifically buy razors and shaving cream marketed to men because it’s at least 30% cheaper in the US, and yet the quality is way better. 

fucking true!
even marketing books say that: create two versions of the same product, one for women, the other for men, is a easy way to increase sales (especially if you sell convenience goods)!
another one is to create versions based on age: for children, for teens, for adults, …

In concrete, these are just fakes additional values that lever on people insecurities and are added to a product in order to convince customers to choose that brand among the many choices on the shelve.
Maybe the right product for that client is not the one with a male/female label, but the client’ll never know for is unconsciously diverted on the gendered good.

Companies should focus their advertising on people personal tastes and needs, that is what customers wants, not reinforcing and creating silly gender stereotypes out of laziness.

When my husband [Carl Sagan] died, because he was so famous and known for not being a believer, many people would come up to me — it still sometimes happens — and ask me if Carl changed at the end and converted to a belief in an afterlife. They also frequently ask me if I think I will see him again.

Carl faced his death with unflagging courage and never sought refuge in illusions. The tragedy was that we knew we would never see each other again. I don’t ever expect to be reunited with Carl. But, the great thing is that when we were together, for nearly twenty years, we lived with a vivid appreciation of how brief and precious life is. We never trivialized the meaning of death by pretending it was anything other than a final parting. Every single moment that we were alive and we were together was miraculous — not miraculous in the sense of inexplicable or supernatural. We knew we were beneficiaries of chance… That pure chance could be so generous and so kind… That we could find each other, as Carl wrote so beautifully in Cosmos, you know, in the vastness of space and the immensity of time… That we could be together for twenty years. That is something which sustains me and it’s much more meaningful.

The way he treated me and the way I treated him, the way we took care of each other and our family, while he lived. That is so much more important than the idea I will see him someday. I don’t think I’ll ever see Carl again. But I saw him. We saw each other. We found each other in the cosmos, and that was wonderful.

High in the Italian alps, within the famous mountain range called the Dolomites, separating the Funes valley from the Gardena valley, sit the breathtaking Odle mountains. The Dolomites were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in August 2009, and have been called some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes found anywhere in the world with its sheer cliffs, vertical walls, and deep valleys.
