While the world was gawking at Kim Kardashian's oily butt, Australians were sticking their own butts up in the air on Bondi Beach to speak out against the government's lack of action on climate change.

In 2009. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott called climate change "crap," but changed his stance this year to say he would take it "very seriously."

But because Abbott decided against adding climate change to agenda of the G20 summit, which kicks off this weekend, more than 400 protesters gathered to shove their heads in the sand to make a statement.

Street Art of the Day: Glow-in-the-Dark Van Gogh Bike Path Opens in Netherlands

The Netherlands has just unveiled its second coolest bike path, a glow-in-the-dark stretch of road that displays illuminated patterns based on Vincent van Gogh's famous painting "Starry Night."

The kilometer-long path, designed by Daan Roosegaarde in association with his "Smart Highways" project, runs through the province of Noord Brabant, where Van Gogh grew up.

It consists of thousands of stones covered in special paint which charge during the day and light up at night.

As a backup - in case the path doesn't get enough of a charge during the day - there are additional LED lights along the side that are charged by an accompanying solar panel.
"I wanted to create a place that people will experience in a special way, the technical combined with experience, that's what techno-poetry means to me," said Roosegaarde.

Earlier this week another path was opened up for use by SolaRoad, which contains built-in solar panels to generate electricity.

This is the saddest story you will hear all day.

When his mother died unexpectedly in her sleep, Lennon James Picco was delivered via emergency C-section at just 24 weeks old.

The child tragically died as well soon after, but before he did, his father, Chris, sang to him for several hours in the NICU.

From the family's memorial site:

Dear friends, family, and supporters; it is with an unbelievably heavy heart that I write this. My little fighter, Lennon James Picco went to sleep in his daddy's arms late last night. He was surrounded by family, friends, and the best doctors, nurses and hospital staff in the world. He was dressed in an outfit that Ashley bought for him, with little guitars on it, and wrapped in a blanket made by a dear friend. I am so thankful for the four unforgettable days I got to spend with him. His mommy would have been so beyond joy to see him and to hold him, touch him, bathe him, sing to him - as I have had the privilege of doing. I have been so blessed and honored to love him before he was formed, to cherish him while mommy carried him, meet him face to precious face, and hold his perfect little body while we said "goodbye for now". There are no words, but I wanted to keep you updated, as your love and support has meant more than anything in the world. All you need is love.
