9 scary movies that are surprisingly sexy

Mashable - 10 hours 58 min ago
Warning: Some super light spoilers lie ahead.

As any decent witch will tell you, spooky and sexy are not mutually exclusive.

The horror industry is a beast with as many subgenres as Medusa has heads. You can go gothic or slasher, found footage or torture porn, classic monster or heady nightmare—the possibilities are practically endless. 

But some horror fans' needs are a little trickier to hunt down than others'. For example, what if you want to watch something that's just a little... sexy? No, not full-blown horror erotica. Just a regular scary flick with some racy elements. Where do you find something so specific? Read more...

This collapsible and foldable helmet could change bike safety as we know it

Mashable - 11 hours 28 min ago

When riding a bike, wearing a helmet is an important safety precaution, especially in a busy city or a suburban street. It’s like wearing a seatbelt in a car: you hope you never need it, but you sure are glad you have it strapped around you if you get into an accident. 

But while cars come with seatbelts built in, a bike helmet is something you have to actively thinking about. They’re usually too big and bulky to bring with you all the time, which means that it's all to easy to leave them at home.

SEE ALSO: Bike-sharing is taking off around the world

Currently seeking funding on IndieGoGo, Brooklyn-based company Park & Diamond has created a collapsible bike helmet that’s stylish, ultra-portable, breathable, and reportedly safe. The helmet (which looks like a snazzy baseball cap) only weighs eight ounces and completely folds into itself, so it can be taken just about anywhere. It’s small enough to be carried inside of a reusable wide-mouth water bottle, a backpack, or a large purse, while the campaign page claims that the helmet is safe enough to prevent head trauma in an accident.  Read more...

Winamp, legendary music player of the 2000s, is getting a streaming era refresh

Mashable - 13 hours 35 min ago

Winamp, the legendary music player which was a staple of early 2000s computers, is getting a refresh for the streaming era.

It'll become an audio app which brings together music, podcasts and streaming in one place, according to TechCrunch.

The last time Winamp was updated was in 2013, when it was then owned by AOL. Belgian online radio firm Radionomy acquired the music player a year later, where it hasn't seen much attention — with the exception of a community project that's worked to keep it updated.

"You can listen to the MP3s you may have at home, but also to the cloud, to podcasts, to streaming radio stations, to a playlist you perhaps have built," Alexandre Saboundjian, CEO of Radionomy, told the outlet.  Read more...

When Starting a New Job, Lay the Groundwork for Your Success

Havard Management Tip of the Day - 14 hours 28 min ago

If you want to excel in a new job, you can’t rely on the orientations and meetings that HR sets up for you. Take control of your onboarding by cultivating connections up, down, and across the organization. Figure out who the influencers are in relation to your role, and get to know them face-to-face. And don’t make the common mistake of assuming you know what your top goals should be and how best to communicate with your new manager. Ask your boss questions to better understand how you will be evaluated and to identify potential early wins: “How do you prefer to give and receive feedback and be kept informed?” and “What should I accomplish in the next six months?” Keep in mind that the goal isn’t to become a hero by tackling the biggest problem right away. Instead, go after something that can be achieved quickly and that delivers operational or financial results.
