New animated short film reveals the anxiety and stigma of 'flying while fat' A still from the animated short film 'Flying While Fat.' In tiny airplane cabins, pressure mounts — especially for plus-size travelers entering an aircraft that wasn't designed with them in mind. To bring attention to the discrimination and stress plus-size people face when flying, London-based activist and artist Stacy Bias has created a new animated short film called Flying While Fat. She hopes to start a conversation about acceptance and inclusion of plus-size travelers. Bias tells Mashable she created the animated short to amplify the often silenced voices of fat airline passengers, giving them the chance to unpack the challenges of fitting into spaces that physically exclude them. The animated film is based off intensive research Bias undertook in her...

At Cuban embassy in D.C., people stop to contemplate Fidel Castro’s death The Cuban flag flew at half-staff in front of the Cuban embassy Saturday morning as a trickle of people paused at the diplomatic building in Washington to contemplate the death of Fidel Castro. “I came here for my grandfather,” said Barbara Abeyá Williams, a homemaker from Stafford, Va. “I’m going to start crying as I talk about it.” Her grandfather, Benito Abeyá, was a local government official and the owner of a car dealership in Havana when Castro’s revolution triumphed in 1959. Abeyá became a wanted man and left for Miami with Barbara’s father, Gilberto. Barbara’s grandmother, mother and sister soon followed, and later Barbara was born in their new country, the United States. “Castro took everything away from my family,” but they built...

Thankfully, the painting that inspired the botched Jesus fresco is OK Call it a divine intervention. The actual appearance of “Ecce Homo” (“Behold the Man”) — a fresco of Jesus Christ located inside a northern Spain church, which an amateur octogenarian art restorer infamously botched in 2012 — no longer needs to be left to the imagination. A pair of antique dealers in the city of Zaragoza have just discovered the original “Ecce Homo” by artist Elías García Martínez — a canvas that he used as a guide to later paint the church mural, according to the Local. Instead of a blurry potato, or even a bearded monkey — which the screwed-up fresco now resembles — this original shows Jesus Christ in a crown of thorns, his eyes looking up. Dos anticuarios hallan el original que inspiró el ...
