Pilot Whales Slaughtered

More than 120 pilot whales, slaughtered on July 23, 2010, are pictured on docks in the harbor of Torshavn, Faroe Islands, an autonomous province of Denmark. Every year, herds of pilot whales (Globicephala melaena) pass by the shores of the Faroe Islands. In the past fishermen used spears and harpoons, but today the whale hunting equipment is legally restricted to special knives, ropes, and assessing-poles for measurement.

Lady Gaga Raw Meat Dress

This dress is an obvious attempt to overwhelm the sensibilities of the viewers of the show and to draw outrage and anger, but overall is a device to capture attention. It seems to have been successful to a certain extent. In a world where the TV is on, people are hooked with the Internet and texting all the same time, each media it trying desperately to grab the all too fickle attention span of the viewers.
