  • Men face fines of Ł80 if they comment about a woman's body or appearance

    Men will face fines of up to Ł80 if they comment on a woman's body or appearance in public. The new proposals put forward to the French government are aimed at combatting the levels of harassment rife on the streets of the country's cities. An Ł80 fine will be issued to anyone who behaves in a manner which 'infringes the freedom of movement of women in public spaces and undermines self-esteem and the right to security'.

    WILLIMANTIC, Conn. — Maybe nice guys really do finish last, after all. Women don’t view unattractive men as “dating material,” no matter how exceptional their other qualities are, a new study finds. Researchers at Eastern Connecticut State University looked at the mate preferences of 80 young women, aged 15 to 29, while also having 61 of their mothers weigh in. The participants were presented with photographs of men varying in both attractiveness and described as one of three dispositions:“friendly,” “pleasing,” or “respectful.” Additional trait profiles were explained for each of the three dispositions. Men labeled “respectful” included the traits ‘respectful,...
  • It's High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He's In the White House

    I've been on the Barron Trump train from the start, but it's about time the president’s son starts dressing the part. Barron is the youngest son of Donald Trump and the only child the president shares with Melania Trump. Time and time again Barron has proved that he's just a normal 11-year-old kid, despite the fact that his dad is the President of the United States and he lives in the White House. One thing that isn't normal though is the way he dresses when he joins his parents for a public appearance. Barron was returning to the White House...

    The Resurrection Appearances “Chronologically” Arranged By: Msgr. Charles PopeToday’s post is a follow-up to yesterday’s blog.When we encounter the resurrection accounts in the New Testament, we face a challenge in putting all the pieces together in such a way that the sequence of events flows in logical order. This is due to the fact that no one Gospel presents all or even most of the information. Some of the accounts seem to conflict. I have opined before (HERE) that these apparent conflicts are usually not in fact true conflicts. Another difficulty with putting all the facts together in a coherent manner is that...
  • Why Sunglasses Make Everyone Better Looking

    Newser ^ | June 29, 2014 | Matt Cantor
    There is, somehow, an instant attractiveness boost conferred by sunglasses. But why is it that covering up our eyes creates this effect? Believe it or not, there is an expert on the topic (it was the subject of her PhD), and UK professor Vanessa Brown explains the situation to Science of Us. The Guardian notes Brown's research spun out of her catching sight of her own reflection one day—walking into a supermarket in scruffy painting clothes but looking, she believed "quite cool," thanks to her sunglasses. That may be because, first of all, symmetry makes us look better, and sunglasses...

    Michelle Obama has rescheduled a high school graduation speech after the students complained that her appearance would prevent many of their friends and relatives from attending the ceremony. The First Lady was scheduled to speak at a combined graduation ceremony for five high schools in Topeka, Kansas, on May 17 but will now be speaking at a different 'senior recognition day' ceremony the day before. 'Once we learned about the concerns of some students, we were eager to find a solution that enabled all of the students and their families to celebrate the special day,' said the First Lady's communications...

  • Reporter Apologizes For Originally Identifying London Stabber As Having ‘Muslim Appearance’

    Mediaite ^ | 5/27/13 | Andrew Kirell
    BBC News political editor Nick Robinson apologized last week for originally identifying the London stabbing as having a “Muslim appearance” based on quotes given to him by law enforcement. Appearing on the News at Six the day of the Woolwich attack, Robinson explained that his law enforcement sources told him the perpetrator was of “Muslim appearance” and had reportedly been shouting “Allahu Akbar,” the Arabic phrase for “God is great.” The report apparently generated controversy, especially within the United Kingdom’s Muslim community, who felt the comment represented an unfair “racist generalization.” Several days later, Robinson took to the BBC website...

    University of California President Mark Yudof defended Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s right to speak at the university’s Berkeley campus. Farrakhan’s speech Saturday was billed as being about black empowerment, but was also peppered with anti-Semitic and hate speech, students told The Daily Californian student newspaper. A petition circulated after the speech by Jewish student leaders, which opposed Farrakhan’s speech and character, but not the Black Student Union’s right to bring him to campus, garnered more than 350 signatures, the student newspaper reported. “Louis Farrakhan is a provocative, divisive figure with a long history of racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic...

  • First Lady Busts A Move During High School Appearance (“random dancing” for Nick TV show iCarly)

    ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — They called it “random dancing” but First Lady Michelle Obama broke out some moves that resembled subdued variations of “the Monkey” or “the Jerk” Friday during an appearance at a northern Virginia high school. A screaming, raucous auditorium filled with elementary and middle school students greeted Obama and the cast of the Nickelodeon TV show “iCarly” at Hayfield Secondary School in Fairfax County. The appearance promoted an upcoming episode featuring Obama in which she thanks military families for their sacrifices. On the show, star Miranda Cosgrove plays the daughter of an Air Force colonel deployed overseas....

    While there was more than one reason why John McCain was a long shot to win the 2008 general election, a big one was something almost no one talked seriously about: appearance. That is to say, when was the last time an old-looking, white-haired, half-bald man won the presidency? If you think this piece will be satire or fluff, think again. It rather will be very serious commentary about a very silly -- but painfully real -- phenomenon. When people do discuss looks' impact on presidential fortunes, they usually treat the matter as a joke; we may hear, for instance,...

    The Soutane which is required as clerical attire in the Church law books, shows itself to be ever a career killer. ("I have decided for several years now to almost exclusively wear the Soutane." Father Hendrick Jolie said this for the most recent interview of the Catholic monthly magazine 'Kirchliche Umschau'. The Soutane is is in the eyes of the clergyman an acceptable and practical possibility, it makes the clergyman stand out in public: "The Priest is not >>better<<. but most probably he's, >>other<<' -- he explains.

    The president decided to pass up the Boy Scouts of America's 100th Anniversary in order to make an "historic" appearance on ABC's "The View." Despite the fact that the Jamboree was just a hop, skip, and a jump from the White House at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, the president sent a recorded message instead of showing up himself. The reaction of the Boy Scouts to the video tells the story ... Never was a Boy Scout myself but I understand that the Jamboree means a lot to those in attendance. And the Boy Scouts have meant a lot...

    TENTACLED monsters, pale skinny humanoids, shimmery beings of pure energy... When it comes to the question of what alien life forms might look like, we are free to let our imagination roam. The science-in-waiting of extraterrestrial anatomy has yet to acquire its first piece of data, so nobody knows what features we will behold if and when humans and aliens come face-to-face. Or face to squirmy something. Despite this lack of hard evidence, a blend of astronomy and earthly biology offers some clues to what is out there. A few bold scientists are even willing to make an educated guess...

    My wife was listening to Glenn Beck’s radio program, this morning. She informs me that Glenn Beck says that the White House called his “red phone” yesterday at the end of his FOX News TV show. Evidently, the White House was upset that Glenn Beck interviewed Michael Goldfarb, author of the Offutt AFB closure threat report. In the interview, Goldfarb stood by his report. Glenn Beck, prefacing the story as a rumor, also stated that he confirmed this story with three sources. But, the White House vociferously denies the story.

    She is known for her unconventional choices and now US first lady Michelle Obama is setting another precedent by the first presidential wife to appear on a reality TV series.

The episode of the popular series, which pits well-known chefs against each others, has been filmed at the White House and will be aired in the New Year. Many of the ingredients for the meals prepared in the show were chosen from...
