We are so excited that my favorite sports fashion retailer JD Sports is bringing back the iconic Stan Smith from Adidas in time for my summer holiday! Originally created in the 1970s for tennis superstar Stan Smith, the trainer has become one of the most stylish sneakers of all time.
The Stan Smith is sleek simplicity, with full grain smooth leather, perforated 3-Stripes and rubber sole. I love this low top both for it’s quality and clean look. It is also a sneaker that breathes which is super important for the summer. I can’t wait to get a hold of my pair and I am so thrilled for the shoes return, I am giving a Ned Hardy reader a free pair in their preferred size. Just like the Ned Hardy Facebook page and leave a comment on why you dig the site. I’ll pick a winner and send these beauties to your door!

This is Dobri Dobrev. Aged 98, he is a Bulgarian WWII veteran.
He lives 10km outside Bulgaria Capital, Sofia. Everyday he walks the 10k to the city capital, to beg for money.
I hate that word—“lucky.” It cheapens a lot of hard work. Living in Brooklyn in an apartment without any heat and paying for dinner at the bodega with dimes—I don’t think I felt myself lucky back then. Doing plays for 50 bucks and trying to be true to myself as an artist and turning down commercials where they wanted a leprechaun. Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that guy who’s freezing his ass off back in Brooklyn. So I won’t say I’m lucky. I’m fortunate enough to find or attract very talented people. For some reason I found them, and they found me.

Believe it or not, there are about 150,000 stray cats and dogs in Istanbul, Turkey. That’s 150,000 animals that are left to roam the streets with 14 million human beings. Unfortunately, despite the fact that there are so many people in the city of Istanbul, no one is willing to give these animals food, water and shelter. Luckily, a Turkish company called Pugedon decided to create a few awesome vending machines that feed the stray animals and double as recycling receptacles, keeping trash and litter off the streets.
These vending machines have the ability to store and dispense food for stray cats and dogs.

Nestled in Northeast India next to the Brahmaputra River sits Majuli Island, a giant sandbar that happens to be the largest river island on Earth, home to some 150,000 people. It is also the location of the 1,360 acre Molai Forest, one More than 30 years ago, a teenager named Jadav "Molai" Payeng began planting seeds along a barren sandbar near his birthplace in India’s Assam region.
It was 1979 and floods had washed a great number of snakes onto the sandbar. When Payeng — then only 16 — found them, they had all died.
"The snakes died in the heat, without any tree cover. I sat down and wept over their lifeless forms," Payeng told the Times Of India.
"It was carnage. I alerted the forest department and asked them if they could grow trees there. They said nothing would grow there. Instead, they asked me to try growing bamboo. It was painful, but I did it. There was nobody to help me," he told the newspaper.
Now that once-barren sandbar is a sprawling 1,360 acre forest, home to several thousands of varieties of trees and an astounding diversity of wildlife — including birds, deer, apes, rhino, elephants and even tigers.
The forest, aptly called the "Molai woods" after its creator’s nickname, was single-handedly planted and cultivated by one man — Payeng, who is now 47.
According to the Asian Age, Payeng has dedicated his life to the upkeep and growth of the forest. Accepting a life of isolation, he started living alone on the sandbar as a teenager — spending his days tending the burgeoning plants.
Today, Payeng still lives in the forest. He shares a small hut with his wife and three children and makes a living selling cow and buffalo milk. According to the Assistant Conservator of Forests, Gunin Saikia, it is perhaps the world’s biggest forest in the middle of a river.
Filmmaker William Douglas McMaster recently wrote and directed this beautiful documentary short titledForest Man from the perspective of Payeng’s friend, photographer Jitu Kalita.
