Students now will be able to get into their dorms and pay for meals in the university cafeteria using just their iPhones or Apple Watches.Starting Tuesday, students from three US universities will be able to add their student IDs to the Apple Wallet on their devices. That lets them use their phones and watches to pay for items or access buildings on campus like the gym or school library. All they have to do is hold an iPhone or Apple Watch near the readers where physical student ID cards are scanned, on and off campus. "When we launched Apple Pay, we embarked on a goal to replace the physical wallet," Jennifer Bailey, Apple's vice president of internet services, said in a press release. "We're now thrilled to be working with campuses on adding contactless student ID cards to bring customers even more easy, convenient and secure experiences." Now playing: Watch this: Mobile payments are a mess. Here's why 4:32 The virtual student IDs arrive at Duke University and the … [Read more...] about Apple’s Wallet makes room for college student IDs

Pastor Harry Reeder is a busy man, and one who has managed to combine his two passions—the word of God and the Civil War—into a single, continuous practice through sheer force of will. In addition to ministering to over 4,000 congregants at a megachurch with a yearly operating budget of more than $25 million, Reeder teaches seminars on Christian manhood as exemplified by figures like Robert E. Lee and shepherds the faithful through paid tours of Southern Civil War sites. And still he finds time to deliver 10-minute angles on current events through his daily radio program, “Today In Perspective.” Reeder’s tone, when he’s evangelizing, is measured rather than zealous.

Laverne Cox is 5'11", maybe 6'4" in Louboutins, but her super-shiny, super-long blonde wig gives her the illusion of added height. Or maybe it's the metaphor: in the year and a half since Orange is the New Black began, Cox's star has grown exponentially, and as a public figure she is larger than life: the rare actress whose talent is commensurate with her activism and vice versa, a groundbreaking figure in pop culture who has been able to use her profile as a beloved star to foster further understanding and acceptance of trans people. For Cox, 2014 has been about landmarks. GLAAD Award. Emmy nomination. Time Magazine cover. First openly trans person to receive those latter honors. Busier than ever, at present she is finishing up the Free CeCe documentary, writing a book, continuing a year-plus-long college speaking tour, and taping the next season of Orange is the New Black. Cox is making great strides in her career, and progressing the way trans people are regarded in ways great and … [Read more...] about Add
Dig out your blue eyeshadow, your body glitter and your Aqua Net, because it’s time for PROM WEEK on Pictorial. It’s 1983, and high school sophomore Molly Knight wants three things: to pursue a career in broadcast journalism like her local TV idol, the glamorous Faith Campbell; to date the most popular boy in school, sad-eyed Duncan Grover; and to attend a formal prom. That is the premise of Dream Prom, a teen romance from the imprint “Sweet Dreams,” labeled as appropriate for readers 11 and older. The book shared a publisher with and there are in fact ads in the back for the Sweet Valley High series. We meet Molly the morning after her Sweet Sixteen party, which was a huge success because her crush, Duncan (!!!) attended, slow danced with her, and left her a note afterward saying he wants to get to know her better. VERY MAJOR. Unfortunately, Duncan takes too long to call and instead she hears from his best friend, Matt, who wants to take her out. She says … [Read more...] about What One 1983 Teen Romance Had to Say About the Prom: It’s Literally a Dream Come True!
