They asked 100,000 men what makes the 'perfect' woman. Ellen chimes in.

Want to know what men are looking for in a woman?

TV shows and magazines and even some dating sites would have us believe women realllllly care about that. I'm not so sure.


But for those of you who are on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what the "perfect" woman looks like from the standpoint of 100,000 dudes, What's Your Price (a dating site that actually lets dudes bid money on dates with women. ... I'm not joking) sorta looked into it. Keyword sorta. And I'm just gonna tell you now: It's a wee bit ridiculous.

They surveyed 100,000 dudes and asked them what traits make the "perfect" woman.

Drumroll, please:

  1. blonde hair
  2. blue eyes
  3. slender body
  4. non-smoker
  5. social drinker
  6. graduate degree

Yawn. Really?

I wanted to point out how tired those results were, but I think Ellen actually beat me to it. She knows.

Bingo! THANK YOU, ELLEN.

Awww, feelings.

She's not claiming to be an expert, but she does know a few good things to look for in a relationship.

AND still let you win at Bananagrams. Oh yeah.

Being empathetic is a very good thing.

And you accept them for them!

Ooooh burrrrrrn.

Ellen gets it. Ellen gets me.

I appreciate her calling out just another dating survey that focuses on a lot of the wrong things, 'cause there is so much more to a person than what they've deemed most important. We gotta keep fighting these outdated beauty standards and encourage each other to stop judging only on the surface, ya know? You don't want to be the person Ellen calls out next. She will win.

Between the new normal that is working from home and e-learning for students of all ages, having functional electronic devices is extremely important. But that doesn't mean needing to run out and buy the latest and greatest model. In fact, this cycle of constantly upgrading our devices to keep up with the newest technology is an incredibly dangerous habit.

The amount of e-waste we produce each year is growing at an increasing rate, and the improper treatment and disposal of this waste is harmful to both human health and the planet.

So what's the solution? While no one expects you to stop purchasing new phones, laptops, and other devices, what you can do is consider where you're purchasing them from and how often in order to help improve the planet for future generations.

Artist Tom Ward has used his incredible illustration techniques to give us some new perspective on modern life through popular Disney characters. "Disney characters are so iconic that I thought transporting them to our modern world could help us see it through new eyes," he told The Metro.

Tom says he wanted to bring to life "the times we live in and communicate topical issues in a relatable way."

In Ward's "Alt Disney" series, Prince Charming and Pinocchio have fallen victim to smart phone addiction. Ariel is living in a polluted ocean, and Simba and Baloo have been abused by humans.

Heather Cox Richardson didn't set out to build a fan base when she started her daily "Letters from an American." The Harvard-educated political historian and Boston College professor had actually just been stung by a yellow-jacket as she was leaving on a trip from her home in Maine to teach in Boston last fall when she wrote her first post.

Since she's allergic to bees, she decided to stay put and see how badly her body would react. With some extra time on her hands, she decided to write something on her long-neglected Facebook page. It was September of 2019, and Representative Adam Schiff had just sent a letter to the Director of National Intelligence stating that the House knew there was a whistleblower complaint, the DNI wasn't handing it over, and that wasn't legal.

"I recognized, because I'm a political historian, that this was the first time that a member of Congress had found a specific law that they were accusing a specific member of the executive branch of violating," Richardson told Bill Moyers in an interview in July. "So I thought, you know, I oughta put that down, 'cause this is a really important moment. If you knew what you were looking for, it was a big moment. So I wrote it down..."

By the time she got to Boston she has a deluge of questions from people about what she'd written.

Schools often have to walk a fine line when it comes to parental complaints. Diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and preferences for what kids see and hear will always mean that schools can't please everyone all the time, so educators have to discern what's best for the whole, broad spectrum of kids in their care.

Sometimes, what's best is hard to discern. Sometimes it's absolutely not.

Such was the case this week when a parent at a St. Louis elementary school complained in a Facebook group about a book that was read to her 7-year-old. The parent wrote:

"Anyone else check out the read a loud book on Canvas for 2nd grade today? Ron's Big Mission was the book that was read out loud to my 7 year old. I caught this after she watched it bc I was working with my 3rd grader. I have called my daughters school. Parents, we have to preview what we are letting the kids see on there."
