Wolves howl as a form of long-distance communication, conveying a range of information. Because of the high pitch and the suspension of notes, the sounds of wolf howls can carry as far as 6 miles (9.6 kilometers) in the forest and even 10 miles (16 kilometers) across the treeless tundra.
Wolf howls serve as GPS systems, sing-alongs and fire alarms — all rolled into one. In fact, the purpose of wolf howls isn’t terribly different from the reasons humans raise their voices to the wind. In general, the primary reasons why wolves howl include:
– A rally cry for the pack to meet up
– A signal to let the pack know of a wolf’s location
– A warning for outside wolves to stay out of a pack’s territory

In happier news, a redditor on a stroll through Central Park stumbled across a wedding.
In a fitting image of the times, the lone officiant was appropriately distanced and wearing a mask. Capturing the moment—by the water and through trees in bloom—is quite beautiful, especially in this strange time.
The Game‘s track “Welcome Home,” featuring a posthumous verse by Nipsey Hussle, has been given a touching animation video in honor of the late rapper and the deceased NBA star Kobe Bryant.
Directed by Seen Film’s Stefano Bertelli, the animated visual shows Nipsey rap his verse sitting atop his The Marathon Clothing store in LA. Snippets of Bryant playing basketball alone and with Hussle recur throughout the music video.
The track comes off The Game’s Born 2 Rapalbum, dropped late last year, which the rapper says is his final record — on “Welcome Home,” The Game closed his verse with: “Welcome to my last album, Nip, time to close shop.”
“I am used to working with big teams of people on shoots, but because this is no longer possible during lockdown I decided that it was time to turn the lens on myself,” says photographer Bex Day of the genesis of her latest series Seesaw. Day’s series of self-portraits is an intimate, personalhellip;
Apple‘s upcoming iOS 13.5 software update will make it easier to unlock iPhones using face recognition while wearing a face mask, the Verge reports.
The latest version of the software is all about Covid-19 support. According to beta testers, the tech giant’s newest update will immediately recognize the face mask, then prompt the user to enter their passcode.
Currently, Face ID does not work for iPhone users while wearing a cloth or respiratory face mask. Instead, users are required to wait an extra 10-15 seconds, as the software will insist on trying to authenticate biometrically instead of just giving you the passcode option.
The current user interface design could put iPhone users at risk if they feel like they have to quickly remove their masks in order to unlock their devices.
Seemingly also prompted by the global pandemic, Apple is improving FaceTime group video calls, too. Abandoning the current feature where the active speaker automatically grows larger in the asymmetric grid, the update will instead allow users to select one participant’s face to be enlarged on their screen.
Work From Home is a new vertical dedicated to life and culture in the strange and unprecedented situation of self-quarantine that many of us are dealing with right now. From what to watch to how to get a fit off and how to not think about anything, this is our guide to the great indoors. For updates on the spread of Covid-19 and how to keep yourself safe and informed, consult WHO and the CDC.
As we continue to live this new normal in which leaving the home is a rare occasion, it’s good to make those limited occurrences count. For those who have a dog, or dogs, you’re blessed with a few extra opportunities to put together fits that will make those clothes in your closest feel less useless.
Whether you’re a dog walker or a dog runner, going the active route is key to making sure you look and feel the part. Track pants and biking shorts are good options when it comes to bottoms, while windbreakers, hoodies, and workout tees are smart ways to ensure your top half is well taken care of.
This top will work well with some functional sports shorts, such as the District Vision pair below. It can also act as a layering piece or stand on its own.
You can never go wrong with Gucci slides. These are recommended if you have bigger or slower dogs that are perhaps past their prime. For the dog walks with a more laid-back pace.
These tight shorts are such a nice length. These will become your dog walk staple due to ultra-comfort (they feel like you’re still in your underwear) and the fact they go with everything.
If you are a loungewear enthusiast and you swear by a solid track jacket, Celine has come to the rescue with the daddy of zip-ups. This jacket just yells superior dog owner when your hound stops mid-walk to sniff another dog’s butt.
These Reebok sneakers remind me of that classic photo of Victoria and David Beckham in the matching tracksuits. And channeling the Beckhams from the ’90s is always a good style move.
You’ll need a rain jacket for the early morning misty walk around the block. This Carhartt WIP staple helps you keep a low but stylish profile.
Wearing this loud long-sleeve will make you feel like you’re celebrating both your dog and your walk, and rightfully so. Pair this top with dark solid colors for some balance.
Here are some pants that could easily become your go-to throw-on-and-go pants. Having a pair of nylon tracks will change the game. The durability of the fabric and the color will make these work with almost any slide or hoodie.
Workout tees help with sweat if you’re more of a dog runner, and will work well as an underlayer for when you need to layer up. This is the piece of clothing that quietly plays its part.

According to various leak accounts, UNDEFEATED and Nike are cooking up a second edition of the duo’s highly popular 2017 Air Max 97 collaboration. The second drop, rumored to be dropping later this year, comprises three colorways. Mockups expect all three colorways to feature the same UNDEFEATED branding along the piping seen on the first trio.
UNDEFEATED has a long history with Nike, having collaborated on a range of Nike footwear. Most recently, the California retailer has been focused on the Air Max 90 — due to the silhouette’s 30th anniversary this year — though the drops have not been as popular as the aforementioned 2017 Air Max 97 release.
So far, no official information or leaked images exist, so stay tuned for updates.
G-Eazy has linked up with Jack Harlow on the new track “Moana (I Miss Obama),” dropping off a corresponding quarantine-friendly music video with a ton of celebrity cameos.
The Zaytoven-produced track was recorded during the coronavirus lockdown, and sees the self-isolating rapper get introspective about missing exes (and Obama). The track takes its title from Disney’s 2016 animated movie; “Got a bitch from Samoa look like Moana,” G-Eazy raps.
For the video, the “What’s Poppin” hitmaker FaceTimes what looks like all the famous people on his contact list. Diddy, Blake Griffin, Marshawn Lynch, YG, Snoop Dogg, Jamie Foxx, Ty Dolla Sign, and many more show up in the visuals for the track.
G-Eazy also recruited his fans to sing along to the song and record dance videos. The clips are intercut with footage of the rapper performing the song at home.
We can all agree: nudes are fundamental. As old as cave paintings, “the nude” unsurprisingly exploded after the sexual revolution – reflecting our innate thirst in new and exciting ways. National outlets like Playboy and Hustler disseminated varying degrees of erotica with record abandon. Primarily targeted at straight, male eyes, this semi-mainstream pulp found a notable exception in Playgirl – the magazine of adult entertainment for women,hellip;
