There were 3.7 million people at this weekend's anti-terrorism rally in Paris – the largest in French history.

One of those people was Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, who wore this simple, yet powerful symbol of solidarity in his jacket pocket.

Rama used to teach at the Academy of Arts of Albania and was an artist himself for years. As mayor of Tirana, he organized a mural project to transform Soviet-era ruins into colorful works of art.

The story goes that these two news anchors started doing silly handshakes during commercial breaks on their nightly news program to keep the mood up after all the "death and destruction" they report. Sounds like something all of us could use!

This is what heaven looks like, or at least what a hand-pressed Wagyu beef, nutella smoked bacon, and double jack cheese between a fresh motherfu*king grilled doughnut shows up as.

And take note, it's called the "Doughnutfukwitdis".

New year, healthier you right?

The arm was created by Enabling the Future, which has a chapter at Sienna College in Albany, New York. For its first project the Siena e-NABLE group made an Iron Man-themed hand for 5-year-old Jack Carder in Ohio.



In this case, nine-year-old Karissa Mitchell's (who was born without a right hand and most of her wrist) mother reached out to the group on campus, Siena College's director of marketing and communications said.

"She's watched the movie at least 100 times. We sing the songs all the time. We even have a karaoke machine that's 'Frozen'-themed," said Karissa's mother. The prosthetic was built using a 3-D printer and is comprised of 30 parts (it took near 30 hours to make).

To help Karissa achieve her dream of becoming a Disney princess, the team used "a pretty transparent ice blue color filament and added snowflakes to the forearm and her name with an Elsa crown on the cuff," said Alyx Gleason, the project lead and president of Siera e-NABLE. The arm also came with an Olaf LED light source.

Anyone who is in need of an arm or hand is encouraged to reach out to Siena e-NABLE.
