University sports is definitely not cheap. The expenses range from equipment to professional fees. However, the Warwick Rowers of the University of Warwick isn't just fundraising for themselves but also to promote the fight against homophobia. And they took it to a whole new level. How does one do that exactly?

But it isn't just their annual calendar that they do. They sell films, posters, shirts, hoodies, greeting cards, and so much more to promote their cause. Lately they joined Sports Allies, " a programme to reach out to young people challenged by bullying, homophobia or low self-esteem." In 2012, they donated 25% of their earnings to Sports Relief, a UK charity.

For most of us, college or university is the only way to go after graduating from high school. The concept of taking a gap year is so foreign to us that there is a very negative notion about the people who do decide to take one. But Jack and Finn Harries are two remarkable examples who have proven otherwise.
In 2012, Jack Harries took a year off and started a YouTube channel called JacksGap while Finn, his twin brother, was away in Uni. It started out with some videos documenting the things that was keeping him occupied at the time, but by the end of the year, the YouTube channel grew with such a rapid pace that the twins decided to extend their gap year and take a chance with JacksGap.
Through JacksGap, the twins not only made quality videos, but they also got to work hand in hand with numerous charities and organizations for the betterment of mankind. Some of these charities even brought the twins to the places where the root of the problems can be seen the most, and through these travels, they were able to bring in more donations and sponsors.
With their extremely creative ideas, their love for travel, and their exceptional philanthropic endeavours, Jack and Finn are slowly conquering the hearts of numerous people. The fact that these twins have that beautiful British accent to match their adorable faces doesn't hurt either.
JacksGap is definitely one of the best examples that can disprove anyone who says that taking a year off after finishing your secondary education can only lead to nowhere good.

Whenever you go to a beach or whenever it starts snowing, it's just mandatory that you make something out of the these malleable mediums like sand castles or snow angels. Sand and snow may just be the best thing that can be used to make simple and unique artworks out of things that is easily at your disposal!
Artists Simon Beck, Julian Richardson, and Andres Amador are just some of the people who make artworks out of sand and snow; only this time in a larger scale. With the help of their trusted snow boots and rakes, they make larger than life artworks that are just astounding. Although they can easily be ruined by the forces of Mother Nature, nothing stops them from making more pieces on these large canvases.

Christmas is deemed to be one of the jolliest times of the year - if not the jolliest time. From all the beautiful lights to the colorful Christmas trees, all of the best things are showcased around these couple of weeks. People would wrap lights around their porches and plants and they would put up extravagant trees and no one really minded that the electricity bill might sky-rocket at the end of the month. All that matters is that everyone is together and is having a fantastic time celebrating with their loved ones. But sometimes, people tend to go a little overboard with their decorations that it becomes hazardous already. Here are a few of the most bizarre Christmas decorations to be ever seen in a home:
Let us not forget that safety is still very important during this time of the year and a crazy amount of Christmas lights won't really guarantee that. Always remember to take the proper precautions before you decide to turn your house into one big light show that may or may not blind the neighbors, not to mention your electricity bill at the end of the month.
Prince Henry Charles Albert David Windsor also known as Prince Harry of Wales or Captain Harry Wales in the military, might be known as the notorious child of Diana, Princess of Wales and Charles, Prince of Wales,but this 29-year-old prince never forgets to show, time and time again, that he is definitely more than his family background.
A six year old Prince Harry once told his big brother, Prince William, that, "You'll be king, I won't; so I can do what I want!" and boy did he live up to that statement. Back in 2005, he was seen going to a costume party in a Nazi uniform and I'm pretty sure we all know how that ended (not well). In 2012, photos of the prince partying naked with a lot of men and women in his private suit were leaked and in between all of those, he can be seen out and about town partying it up in bars and pubs around the world.
Don't let this fool you though! In 2005, Prince Harry and Prince William started their lives in the military. After several weeks in the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, Prince Harry graduated as a Second Lieutenant in the Army. A year after graduating, speculations about him being deployed in Iraq rose, but this was immediately announced as not true by the British Army. In 2008 though, the British Army officials confirmed that Prince Harry has been fighting in the frontline of battles in Afghanistan since December of the previous year so that he can finally have "the chance to do the soldiering I wanted to do from ever since I joined," and almost right after that got leaked in the media, Prince Harry got sent home.
On top of all his military duties, he is still very much involved in all of his humanitarian and royal duties. After graduating from Eton College in England, Prince Harry chose to spend a part of his gap year working with AIDS orphans in Africa. He is also a patron and ambassador to several organizations like the London Marathon Charitable Trust, WellChild, and Walking With the Wounded to name a few.
Prince Harry is also the very first member of the British Royal Family to reach the South Pole. Last December 2013, along with several injured servicemen and women, Prince Harry spent 13 days in the South Pole where he also got busy building toilets that they can use during their stay there.
Prince Harry is quite an athlete too! He excelled in polo and rugby union the most.
Prince Harry of Wales is one swoon-worthy, real life prince charming. Where can I get one of those?

Vine is an app owned by Twitter wherein people can create short, looping video clips with a maximum length of 6 seconds; and just like all social networking sites, there will always be that one trend that we will never forget.
On October 2013, a significant number of people, mostly young men, started posting Vines of themselves doing the "Grind On Me move" and it has definitely caught our attention.
Grind On Me is actually the explicit version of the song Grind With Me by Pretty Ricky which was first released in 2009; so when it became such a massive hit again on the Internet, it actually took me by surprise when it was accompanied by the "smooth" thrusting of countless boys on six-second looping videos. Once the initial surprise wore off though, I ended up watching more than one Grind On Me compilation... and this led to me discovering that it wasn't only boys - children and animals did it too! There was even this one video wherein the guy was about to do the thrust towards the floor but then his dog arrived which was about to hump him, and I guess that scared him because his face showed that face full of shock and then the video ended there hahaha.
In my opinion, this trend was quite entertaining even though it was just a bunch of toned up boys showing off their thrusting skills to the ground/floor. The most entertaining Grind On Me related video though was the Elders React To Grind On Me by TheFineBros on YouTube.
I would even go so far as saying that most of the boys that were part of the compilation are total babes with their very fit physiques and all. That trend toned down now though and I think we have enough six-second videos of pelvic thrusts to last us for a while.
From the Dougie, to the Harlem Shake, to Twerking, to this - the media seems to have a lot in store for us. What do you think will the next trend be?

Entrepreneur, author, model, student, - 24 year old Nicklas Kingo is definitely seizing the day.
What have you been up to lately?
Nicklas: I’ve been working on some side-businesses a lot lately. I’m taking a long break from modeling. I’m starting uni in September so I want to make sure I’ve built enough cash flow that needs as little maintenance as possible, so I don’t have to live like a student. So far I’ve set up an ebook publishing business, which is coming along nicely. I’m also experimenting with freelance translation and looking into setting up an e-commerce store.
It is our understanding that you have many passions. What introduced you to them and which would you say do you prioritize or want to prioritize the most?
N: I used to play a lot of guitar and sing a lot. I’d spend every night putting together music. I was pretty good at one point, and I was in the Danish x-factor just for shits and gigs. I got through two rounds, but as soon as I wasn’t allowed to use my guitar I couldn’t keep up – I’ve never sung without playing guitar, so I couldn’t hit a single note and I got the kick. I don’t play so much anymore though – I don’t know why.
I really enjoy reading books and blogs. That’s what I spend the most of my time on. I write a lot as well, which is why I started my ebook business and why I want to study journalism.
My dream right now is to have my own TV show one day. I’m a big fan of Anthony Bourdain and his travel/food shows. My one single favourite activity is trying new foods in different cultures and eating and drinking with good company.
How did you start modeling? Do you think your life would have been different if you never went in the business?
N: I’ve always been the kind of person who jumped on every opportunity to try new things, so when I was told I should try applying at a modeling agency, it didn’t take long before I sent in some photos.
Yes, very different. I’d probably be in school now, halfway done. But I wouldn’t have traded the experiences modeling has given me for anything. In the last two years I’ve lived in a dozen cities and seen so many things. When I look at all my mates who just spent their gap year working in a store, or didn’t take one at all, I feel like I have grown so much more than them. It sounds kind of harsh and arrogant, I know, and I shouldn’t be passing judgment when they haven’t been given the same opportunities I have, but what can you do.
Do people at home treat you differently after your success in modeling? How did you react/deal with it?
N: Not anymore, but in the beginning they did yeah. People where so much more accommodating all of the sudden. It was tangible. I had been a bit of a fatty a few months prior, but now that I was fit and a successful model, I got so much more respect everywhere I went. And the amount of attention from the girls was ridiculous compared to before. I’m just happy I didn’t get into it earlier, because I don’t think I would have been able to remain grounded had I started when I was a few years younger.
I’m not going to lie; I really enjoyed the newly acquired attention and respect. But I also remember feeling slightly turned off by it, which is why I think I can honestly say I never abused it. I got annoyed by being judged by my looks, and I started to really understand why hot girls treat some guys like crap; you just sick of the attention you get based solely on good genetics.
I want to be appreciated for my personality and talents, not something I haven’t done fuck all to acquire.
What is one life lesson you have learned from the fashion industry and from modeling?
N: You should do what makes you proud. Whatever you can look at and think, “I fucking made this” and pat yourself on the back. This is the main reason why I’ve taken a long break from modeling; modeling does not give me much sense of accomplishment. I’m a bit tired of a lot of the bullshit that comes along with it. That being said I will start modeling again when I feel ready for it. It’s a perfect side job when you’re studying.
I want to stress that I’m grateful for everything modeling has given and taught me, I don’t want to come across unthankful. But it can, and has been unhealthy for me mentally, which has caused me to act out a lot, which my agencies surely have noticed, and for that I’m sorry.
The impotence you feel when you have absolutely no saying in whether or not you’re working, is the most frustrating feeling ever. You’re constantly dependent on getting picked, and that can get very tiresome.
I believe that to maintain a healthy mind while modeling you have to A) have other financial endeavors and passions so you don’t feel dependent on modeling, or B) be a somewhat devil-may-care’ish kind of person who does not have many aspirations in life.
A Writer and a Businessman
What made you want to write “Runway Memoirs” and “Weight Loss With Intermittent Fasting”?
N: Well, Runway Memoirs was actually mainly a rewrite of a series of blog posts I had written when I was living in Sydney and Seoul. I just needed the satisfaction of producing something, and writing was transportable and I was good at it.
I then used Runway Memoirs to learn how the Amazon Kindle store worked, which eventually lead to my publishing business.
With “Weight Loss with Intermittent Fasting” I just wanted to share the methods I used to drop all that weight when I started modeling. It was pretty easy, but keeping it off is another story entirely. I forget to use the principles myself a lot though, which is why I look very different in my portfolio from time to time. But if you stick to the principles it’s a very effective way of allowing yourself satisfying meals and getting in great shape at the same time.
Going In Depth
What do you think has been your biggest achievement so far?
N: I don’t really think I have any one achievement as such that I’m proud of. I’d say that it’s just my mindset and constant drive to become better at everything. I have a drive for achievement that I don’t see in a whole lot of other people. I’m also very critical, and I try not to make assumptions about things or events I wasn’t a part of. A lot of people hear one snippet of some statement or event, and they start making all these assumptions that the individuals involved are murderers and Nazis. I think it’s important to maintain a critical view and remain skeptic of everything we didn’t experience first hand, because we are fed so much bullshit through mass media every day.
That being said I have a shit load of flaws. I can get very annoyed with people when they don’t have the same aspirations as myself, and when they don’t take action on what they say they want to do. But you know; who am I to pass judgment on them? Some people want big fancy cars, I don’t, and some people just want a simple life with a wife and two kids, and everybody should totally respect that.
Where do you see yourself in the near future?
N: Well, I just got my own place in Copenhagen, which I’m really excited about. I had put off getting my own place for a while because I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and I couldn’t justify getting my own place with all the travelling I did. And I’m a massive mommas boy; I get a long very well with my mother and stepfather, which kept me there for a while.
In the near future I’ve built enough businesses to have become financially independent so I can pursue whatever creative endeavors I want, without having to bootstrap. I’m also keeping busy with my studies, whatever study that ends up being. I want to write more books, I want to try acting, I want to do stand up, I want to do a bunch of mushrooms, I want to be the best friend I can be, I want to be the best son I can be, I want to have a bunch of mind altering experiences, I want to teach and I want to learn. I’m in a hurry as you can see.
Do you think you’re a babe?
N: Fuck no. I try to distance myself as much as possible from this pursuit of being hot, that a lot of people are striving for. I think social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram can be super damaging to a lot of people’s sense of self-image. We’re constantly posting photos of all the amazing and fucking fantastic shit we’re up to, and how hot we’re looking in this and that outfit. Who the fuck cares?!?
As you can tell this is something that grinds my gears quite a lot. I feel kind of sad when I see “liked” photos from Instagram popping up in my Facebook feed, and it’s all just girls pouting their lips doing selfies. When I look back on some of the stuff I would post just a year and half back, I get kind of embarrassed.
What all the “normal” people don’t realize when they follow all the models and hot guys and girls, is that these people look just as shit as you do when they wake up. They have all the same self-image issues as you do.
Even though most people know him for his looks, Nicklas is definitely a smart and talented man who is wise beyond his age. We have learned so much from him and we give our deepest gratitude for providing us with this opportunity. Thanks, Nick!

You're all probably familiar with these kinds of lists. You take ten of the most popular celebrities in Hollywood, and rank them according to how sexy and hot they are. These lists have been made by so many other magazines and websites, and if you've been with us since the start of our magazine, you'd know how much we love making lists. So it's about time Reinvent had its own, right? We wanted to be a bit different from the rest. We took five of the already famous celebrities and mixed them with some of the up and coming celebs that we think should also be part of those lists this year.
And so here are Reinvent's Top 10 Hottest Guys and Girls:
These people are only part of a small portion on the list we've made, and it may even grow longer as the year progresses. But for now, let's bask in all their beauty as we start off this month with a good number of hot guys and girls.
