This Woman Has The Most Terrifying Job In The World, And It Looks Amazing

 

Lauren Stewart is a prop designer at Dapper Cadaver, a California based death-related prop house and prop fabrication shop. Reddit user brandonthebuck posted a link to her Instagram account this week, where Stewart takes pictures of some of the mega creepy props she works on.

I didn't think it was possible to have a job as simultaneously cool and terrifying as Stewart's. Just check out some of these photos.

1. This dummy's face is almost too realistic looking.

 

2. A few fake hearts. At least I hope they're fake.

 

3. Who lost their shopping cart full of body parts?

 

4. Looks like someone has a case of the Mondays.

 

5. Imagine opening a box and find this staring at you. No thanks.

 

6. Some creepy demons.

 

7. Various hyperrealistic body parts.

 

8. I wish these were real.

 

9. It's a severed head party.

 

10. Ahh...ok then.

 

11. This is just disturbing.

 

12. So many skulls to choose from.

 

13. Preparing some terrifying faces for shipping.

 

14. "What are you looking at?"

 

15. I hope no one is ticklish.

While Stewart's job is not for the squeamish, it certainly beats the heck out of your typical office job. For more creepy prop pictures, make sure to follow Lauren Stewart on Instagram.

Whole Foods Revealed Firings With This Internal Memo To Workers

 

1

Whole Foods is firing roughly 1,500 employees over the next two months.

The company's co-CEOs, John Mackey and Walter Robb, announced the job cuts in an internal memo sent to employees on Monday, a source told Business Insider.

"We are writing to tell you directly that we have made the difficult decision to reduce a number of positions across the company over the next two months," the memo reads, according to the source. "So, why are we making these changes now? Over the last few years we’ve discussed ways to make Whole Foods Market an even stronger company in a rapidly changing marketplace. We agreed that we must invest in lowering our prices, marketing our value and standards, and upgrading our technology in order to better serve our customers. "

The job cuts come as Whole Foods faces increased scrutiny for its "whole paycheck" image following an investigation that revealed several stores were overcharging customers for food. 

The company's shares have fallen more than 35% this year. 

Here's the full memo to employees, according to Business Insider's source:

-------------------------

Dear Team Members, 

We are writing to tell you directly that we have made the difficult decision to reduce a number of positions across the company over the next two months. This will happen primarily through both consolidating and eliminating certain store and regional positions. We do expect some of the affected Team Members will take other positions in the company, and together with vacant positions remaining unfilled, we anticipate that this decision will mean an overall reduction of approximately 1,500 Team Members (1.6% of our overall workforce).  Regional leadership is making every effort to speak to all affected Team Members by Tuesday morning. 

We are committed to treating our Team Members in a caring and compassionate manner, so Team Members who are affected will be paid in full over the next eight weeks as they decide on what option works best for them. This may include transition pay plus a generous severance package above the industry norm, or the opportunity to choose to apply for jobs from the nearly 2,000 currently open positions. We hope many of these Team Members will choose to stay in the company in a new role. For those Team Members who choose to leave, we thank them for their service and contributions.

So, why are we making these changes now? Over the last few years we’ve discussed ways to make Whole Foods Market an even stronger company in a rapidly changing marketplace. We agreed that we must invest in lowering our prices, marketing our value and standards, and upgrading our technology in order to better serve our customers.  

We know this is difficult news because it affects many hard working and dedicated Team Members in our Whole Foods Market family. We encourage you to reach out to your leadership with any questions directly or in upcoming meetings. You can also contact us both at  TMFeedback@wholefoods.com and we will respond.  

We’d like to express our deepest appreciation as we all work together through this time.

John and Walter

Irish Stationary Store Is Turning Homophobic Pamphlets Into Confetti for LGBT Weddings

 

From Distractify:

While many people on Twitter have been destroying the anti-gay material, Irish paper company Daintree has instead decided to recycle the hate into beautiful confetti to be used at gay weddings.

Decency

At their shop and online, the confetti is selling for €5 a bag. With all proceeds going to Ireland's pro-LGBT 'Yes Equality' organization.

"At Daintree, paper is our favourite thing in the whole world. So when paper was used to spread some ugly lies in the run up to the marriage equality referendum we weren’t one bit happy."

Decency3

And, if anyone outside of Ireland spots negative and dishonest tweets about the marriage referendum on Twitter, Daintree will print and recycle those too.

Tweet

And they'll even send a tweet to the source of the dishonesty and thank them for their very generous help in supporting equality. While trying to hold back a smile.

More than 500 batches of confetti have already been created, but Daintree don't plan to stop until marriage equality has been passed.

New Nieslen Poll Ranks Wegman's Grocer as Company with Best Reputation

 

Weg1

From Huff Po:

People love Wegmans.

The Rochester, New York-based grocer has unseated Amazon as the firm with the best corporate reputation among a list of 100 highly visible companies, according to an annual Nielsen poll released this week.

Weg3In an age where social media anthropomorphizes products -- from toilet paper to body wash -- branding matters. And although Wegmans has only 85 stores, the company has built a cult following online. Fans applaud the supermarket's decent wages, wide selection of prepared foods and reasonable prices.

Amazon ranked second in the Nielsen poll, followed by Samsung, Costco, Johnson & Johnson and Kraft Foods. The company with the worst reputation on the list was Goldman Sachs.

To determine the rankings in the Harris Poll Reputation Quotient study, evaluated annually for the last 16 years, Nielsen conducted an online survey in English of 27,278 U.S. respondents between Oct. 20 and Dec. 18.
