5 things for Monday

1. Three Woman Warriors Win The Nobel Peace Prize


The 2011 Nobel Peace Prize was presented to three activists and political leaders on Saturday for “their nonviolent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights” as peacemakers. The awards were presented to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, 73; her compatriot Leymah Gbowee, 39, a social worker and a peace activist; and Tawakkol Karman, a Yemeni journalist and a political activist who, at 32, is the youngest Peace Prize laureate and the first Arab woman to receive the award.

In a statement announcing the award winners on Oct. 7, the Nobel committee said it hoped the prize would “help to bring an end to the suppression of women that still occurs in many countries.”



2. Why Romance Novels Are Dangerous

A fabulous video that explains the danger of romance novels.



3. Orange You Glad the Color for 2012 Is Tangerine?

Pantone has spoken and the new hot color for 2012 is Tangerine Tango.
Quoted as being an electric orange red that is  warm, uplifting, and energizing, and it happens to look great with almost every skin tone. Fashion designers have already incorporated the color into their 2012 Spring lines.

4. Fergie Gave Me A Sad

Never mind she wears some god awful clothing-the fact she willing went out in public wearing a dress she couldn’t zip close makes me very sad for her.


5. Whew! The Penguins Are Nekkid Again

The penguins that were lovingly clothed in sweaters to prevent them from preening toxins off their feathers following an oil spill near New Zealand are running around nekkid once again. Good Morning America shouwed a video of the more than 300 affected penguins being released back into the wild, now wearing microchips. Each had to pass a "check-up and six hour swim test to show they're regaining their natural water-proofing."

Awwww. You can watch the video here.
