Most people give the homeless change or leftovers Mark Bustos is cutting their hair
For the past few months, New York City hairstylist Mark Bustos — who normally spends his days working at an upscale salon — has been volunteering on his days off to offer haircuts to homeless people he sees on the street. With a simple phrase, “I want to do something nice for you today,” he has been helping people get a fresh, uplifting makeover.
For people who have been trapped in a cycle of poverty, unemployment and homelessness, the makeover can also serve a useful function: looking presentable for a job. | See the Inspiring thanks he received from one man.

A pair of surprise discoveries, one in a museum basement and the other from a plane over the desert, highlight the week’s list
1. 6.5K-Year-Old ‘Noah’ Found in Museum Basement: An ancient skeleton gathering dust in the basement of the Penn Museum in Philadelphia for 85 years finally has an ID: It’s a 6,500-year-old man newly nicknamed Noah. Turns out, he was rather big and long-lived for his day.
2. Sandstorms Reveal Ancient Designs in Peru Desert: Sandstorms in Peru have revealed mysterious designs believed to have been etched into the desert thousands of years ago.

The Royal British Legion is behind a weighty ad campaign called “Every Man Remembered,” featuring soldiers from World War I who share names with famous people a century later (although “Tom Jones” really is an insanely common name) and making the case that the soldier should be famous, too. Each ad provides a mini-biography of the featured soldier, including when and where he was killed. Heavy stuff, yes, but it’s respectful and not gloomy or maudlin, to ad agency RKCR/Y&R’s credit. It’s a pity organizations like this have to invoke celebrities at all, but at least they picked some relatively classy ones. I doubt a Russell Brand execution would have gone over as well.

Founded by Jonathan Baron and Matthew Holroyd, the self-published title lies at the intersection of art and pornography, and for its latest edition, “The Future of Sex,” the journal gets under the skin of relationships in the digital age. Eighty-eight-year-old Polish sociologist Zygmunt Bauman provides the unlikely reference point with a rumination on the allure of “virtual relationships,” while the list of guest editors includes the co-founder of the New York Club Kids movement, Michael Alig, and Night editor Henry Rubin (issue two saw Tyrone Lebon take the reins). Here, the magazine’s quick-witted “spoof” editor The Baron talks tapping into online desires, and logging off.
