Watch this man with dementia light up with joy when he listens to Elvis

Credit: mashable.com




Elvis is still the King. Especially for John "Sean" O'Malley. 


The Australia man lives with dementia and has been staying at Blacktown Hospital in New South Wales. The condition makes him "distressed, angry, and agitated," according to Western Sydney Health. But crank on a bit of "Heartbreak Hotel" and his mood changes, just like that. 


"His whole behaviour has changed, so for us at home, we haven't been so worried about how he's going here at hospital," O'Malley's daughter, Trish Scerri said in the video, released by the health service.


"We know that this music has brought a lot of happiness while he's been here ... and he's been dancing around the ward since it's been happening." Read more...

RAINS Is Suing Zara for Allegedly Copying Its Raincoat's Core Designs

Danish outerwear brand RAINS has become known for its clean, simple raincoats since it was founded in 2012. Now the brand is suing Zara's parent company, Inditex, for allegedly copying its classic raincoat design and passing it off as its own. The Danish brand are looking for a ruling that would force Zara to stop manufacturing the raincoats immediately, as well as compensation for loss of earnings. In a statement, RAINS cofounder Daniel Brix Hesselager said "Zara has copied some of our core products - classics - items which we have worked relentlessly on to help define our brand. We're talking about products that will not change from season to season. So this copying must stop immediately." The case is due to be heard at the Danish Court of Commerce and, considering the size of Zara, it looks like RAINS is going to be looking for a pretty big pay out from the world's biggest fashion company. Zara has found itself in controversy over its unoriginal designs more than once, with the brand recently being accused of ripping off famous sneaker designs including the Balenciaga Speed Trainer and adidas Originals NMD CS1 PK.Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com

Twitter has all the answers for Trump's 'orb of doom' photo

"By touching this glowing orb, you hereby swear your eternal allegiance to the international Legion of Doom, got it?"  That's just one of the many theories that began swirling around social media on Sunday when Donald Trump appeared in photos clutching a mysterious, illuminated globe in a darkened room alongside Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Egypt's President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi.  SEE ALSO: Twitter's co-founder is totally sorry for helping Trump get elected Of course, the explanation behind the seemingly odd photo is far less nefarious: The orb is actually an installation at the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, according to The Washington Post.  Read more...More about Twitter, Donald Trump, Trump, and Watercooler

Someone already made a Wikipedia page for 'Trump orb'

As we all know by now, the internet is quick to any and everything funny, weird, and downright confusing. We admire, and are maybe just a little bit frightened by, this fact.  President Donald Trump paid a visit to Saudi Arabia this weekend, the first stop on his first foreign trip as president. While there, he gave a highly-anticipated speech about Islam, and attended the opening ceremony of the Global Centre for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh with Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Egypt's President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi. This ceremony involved touching a cool glowing orb.  Behold.

'Minecraft' players on the autism spectrum find a safe space on the Autcraft server

One dad wanted to give people on the autism spectrum a safe space to play Minecraft, so he made a troll-free server called Autcraft that has ballooned in popularity. Stuart Duncan, also known as AutismFather, created Autcraft in 2013. Today it has more than 8,200 members, The Mighty reported, and people outside the community are taking notice. In a video, Duncan explains what exactly Autcraft is and why it's important for people — kids especially — to have a safe place to Minecraft and be themselves.  Minecraft, like almost every game with an online element, suffers from bullies and trolls who come in and create toxic environments.

Uber uses a dinosaur to show how you'd control a self-driving car with a smartphone

Why just hail a self-driving car with your smartphone when you can control one, too?  That may soon be an option if Uber has its way.  SEE ALSO: Uber is losing a ton — and we mean a ton — of money As detailed by a patent application published May 25, the company envisions a system that allows a rider to "instruct the autonomous vehicle to perform one or more non-driving operations" via a "mobile computing device." That's right, only non-driving maneuvers are on the table here. So no, you won't be able to steer the self-driving car with your smartphone. But why would you want to, anyway? If your goal was to drive a car, you wouldn't be in an autonomous Uber.  Read more...More about Apps, Smartphones, Transportation, Uber, and Self Driving Cars

De La Hoya Asks for a Boycott of McGregor vs. Mayweather in Open Letter

Legendary boxer-turned-promoter Oscar De La Hoya issued a letter to his fans via Facebook earlier today, asking for a boycott of the McGregor vs. Mayweather Jr. mega-fight, should it become a reality. "At this point, only we can shut the circus down by making it clear that we won’t pay to see a joke of a fight and telling our casual-fan friends that they shouldn’t either," said The Golden Boy in his statement. De La Hoya's point, a very true point, is that the sport of boxing doesn't need this crossover bout, as it's currently experiencing a very necessary revival. Boxing is starting to dig out of the hole that Floyd and Manny Pacquiao shoveled by waiting seven years to put on a fight that ended up being as dull as it was anti-climactic. 2017 has started off as a banner year for boxing. Joshua vs. Klitschko; Thurman vs. Garcia; Golovkin vs. Jacobs; Canelo vs. Chavez. All four of these fights – and many more -- have brought the fight game back and reinvigorated interest from the ever-elusive casual fan. The gold medalist argues that "our sport might not ever recover" because "Floyd’s and Conor’s motivation is clear. It’s money." And sure, while both fighters are destined for quite the payday -- we're talking big bank here -- that doesn't mean it lacks real integrity and competitiveness -- meaning both fighters honestly think they can win, and will train accordingly. For those that find it to be a mockery of the sport they love, boxing, think about what the likely result might mean. Should Floyd win, it may silence the many MMA fighters and fans that think boxing is a cake-walk in comparison. Or, Oscar could be right, it may just be a total sideshow, distracting us from the great fights we have coming up, including September's Canelo vs. Golovkin title fight, which De La Hoya is putting on, coincidentally enough. But then again, we all have the attention span to follow the happenings around more than one fight, right? Whatever your stance on McGregor vs. Mayweather, De La Hoya is right about one thing: boxing is exciting again.Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com

Apple asks if the iPhone believes in reincarnation

Apple dropped another entry in its animated Earth Day shorts series — and this one grapples with a pretty heady concept: Does my iPhone believe in reincarnation?  The 50-second spot was a tie-in to Apple's participation in the Sustainable Brands 2017 event, which explains the late rollout. The reincarnation angle comes via LIAM, the bot helping to fulfill the company's pledge to stop mining and use a closed-loop supply chain by recycling iPhone parts.    Read more...

10 apps Donald Trump should download instead of Twitter (like, right now)

Donald Trump's using his iPhone wrong. The President reportedly (finally!) has an iPhone. And yet, he's only installed a single, solitary app on it: Twitter. Of course. SEE ALSO: Twitter has all the answers for Trump's 'orb of doom' photo No matter what side of the political aisle you fall on, most of us can probably agree that more access to Twitter isn't exactly something Trump needs, well, more of. That said, he probably could use a few other apps, though.  Here's what he should download instead: 1Interactive Constitution Image: national Constitution CenterLook, you don't even have to read the whole thing. Maybe just give the important parts—like the First Amendment—a glance every once in awhile. Actually, on second thought, you might also want to brush up on Article II, Section 4.

Rafael Nadal's New Richard Mille RM 27-03 Watch Is $750,000 USD of Beauty

Richard Mille and tennis star Rafael Nadal took on the challenge of an on-court watch nine years ago and haven't looked back. Now, the duo announces the next generation in performance and luxury watches with the new Richard Mille RM 27-03. This model sports not only an exclusivity factor and price tag to match but also the most cutting edge watch technology to stay lightweight, shock resistant and perform under the most nerve racking situations. Since Richard Mille insists that brand ambassadors wear its product during play, the RM 27-03 flaunts the ability to withstand up to 10,000 g's of force, resistance on another level which matches the intensity of the nine-time French Open champion. In addition, the palette of red, orange and yellow on the watch are a direct homage to the red clay courts of Roland Garros and the crown is meant to look like a tennis ball. Also the tourbillon motif dial looks like the horns of a bull, Rafa's logo. The Richard Mille RM 27-03 will retail for $750,000 USD and be limited to only 50 pieces. Watch aficionados and Nadal fans can learn more at Richard Mille's website and watch the French Open, which has already started and runs until June 10.Click here to view full gallery at Hypebeast.com
