  • Why Extravagant Beauty Is Evolution’s Most Persistent Problem

    04/22/2020 7:02:06 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 24 replies
    The Federalist ^ | April 22, 2020 | Glenn T. Stanton
    While the rest of us can’t imagine life without beauty, its absence would certainly make life easier for evolutionists. They will just have to accept their beautiful plight. I don’t often think about evolution, but I recently found myself doing so under the warm, cerulean waters of Sharks Cove on the North Shore of Oahu. I was snorkeling, taking in the tropical fish schooling around me. I thought, how did their diverse and extravagant beauty come to exist? If natural selection is the engine that created the living world, what is the reason behind this opulence? Why does beauty even...

    The famously germaphobic supermodel, whose YouTube video detailing her extensive airplane routine went viral last year, was snapped by a spy while boarding a flight from LA to NYC on Tuesday, wearing a full hazmat suit beneath her chic camel cape. The 49-year-old covered her face with an N95 mask, and protected her hands with a pair of pink latex gloves. SNIP “I mean, as much as I travel, I should get sick so much more with colds and stuff and I’m blessed that I don’t, and I really think that this helps me, my little routine,” she said.
  • How a Good Lent Can Help Fix a Bad Economy

    02/29/2020 3:59:03 PM PST · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 9 replies
    To those who see no link between Lent and our failing economy, it might be the case to look again. Economics is about people. It cannot be reduced to numbers, formulae and analyses. “The subject matter of economics,” observes economic historian Odd Langholm, “is properly the habits, customs, and ways of thinking of producers, consumers, buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, and all who engage in economic transactions.” That means our moral habits can have a definite effect on determining if our economy grows — or fails. In my new book, Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian...

    Women are less likely to don high heels if they are going on a date with a man they think is ugly, a controversial study has found. Scientists quizzed 292 female university students, who were all straight, about how often they wear stilettos or other types of the shoe. The volunteers were asked if they would wear high heels or a flat sole shoe if they went on a date with two men plucked from Google Images. One of them was considered to be very attractive by a panel of 14 separate women, the other was deemed to be the...

    ST. CROIX — Six of the ten contestants who participated in Sunday evening’s Miss Universe U.S. Virgin Islands were women from outside the USVI, most with no known ties to the territory and some of whom had participated in other pageants just months prior. The competition, held in a banquet room at the Divi Carina Bay Casino, was the qualifying event whose winner will represent the U.S. Virgin Islands on the world’s biggest and most prominent pageantry stage: Miss Universe. But what was a relatively engaged audience turned somewhat raucous when not one of the four local young women who...

    So, as most of FR knows, I'm a big beauty pageant follower and I follow every world pageant as well as individual country & regional pageants. The Miss Venezuela 2019 Pageant just took place this past Thursday, Aug. 1st from Caracas, and the biggest horror was how rail-thin and unhealthy the contestants all looked. I don't know how to post photos, so here's a link to a photo of the winner, Thalia Olvinos, aged 20, in a bathing suit. https://www.google.com/search?q=thalia+olvino+bathing+suit&rlz=1CAQRFK_enUS791US791&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjZ15POmufjAhUIU98KHW9qAgMQ_AUIESgB&biw=1536&bih=706#imgrc=3fasiyprvpDkhM: Well,as soon as I posted this photo on my Facebook wallpage, some of my liberal friends started going nuts, saying...

    You all know by now that I’m into beauty pageants given that I grew up in Puerto Rico, aside from the fact that my best friend’s daughter is the current Miss Puerto Rico. She’ll be participating in the Miss Universe Pageant in December 2019. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts about this subject, Donald Trump has been to the island numerous times and we got to know him quite well when he was the owner of Miss Universe, Inc. Previous post about Trump’s pageant organizational skills: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3763583/posts People call President Trump a “Racist”, which is so untrue. I’ve just analyzed...

    My dear friend's daughter was just crowned Miss Puerto Rico last month and she'll be participating in the Miss Universe Pageant in December. All we know is that the pageant is in December - we don't know the date nor the location. Some say it'll be in Las Vegas or South Korea. This is a total lack of planning and organization. When Trump was head of the Miss Universe Organization, a few Puerto Ricans won the crown under his watch, so we got to know him well in the beauty pageant world because he came down to the island with...

    Over the weekend, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman penned a piece focusing on former prominent White House staffer Hope Hicks being subpoenaed by Congress. "Hope Hicks, one of the best-known but least visible former members of President Trump's White House staff, is facing an existential question: whether to comply with a congressional subpoena," the Times captioned the piece. The write-up includes a photograph of Ms. Hicks taken by freelance photographer Tom Brenner -- which Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) ironically took serious issue with. Tom Brenner/The New York Times ************* "Yup. Where’s the 'no angel' take now?" asked Ocasio-Cortez, deeply...

    Gillette is making waves with a photo it tweeted of an obese woman posing on a beach in a bikini, with her curves and cellulite on full display. The razor maker last week posted the image of Anna O'Brien, a plus-size fashion, fitness and lifestyle blogger, under its @GilletteVenus handle, captioning it, "Go out there and slay the day." Some Twitter users said the ad glamorizies obesity and that Gillette is "irresponsibly" promoting an unhealthy lifestyle for profit.

    Attractive women bosses are considered less truthful and trustworthy by both sexes, research has found. In tests, hundreds of male and female participants said they thought a pretty female boss was less likely to be honest. They were also considered more deserving of being fired than a less attractive counterpart. Good looks are often thought to be advantageous in life, whether when it comes to getting served in shops or pubs or being more likely to succeed at a job interview, and even the likelihood you are found guilty in court.

    The London Free Press ^ | October 20, 2018 | The Telegraph
    South Korea’s women have begun to rebel against impossible standards of beauty in a country known as the plastic surgery capital of the world. Women who call themselves “beauty resisters” have been destroying their cosmetics, cutting their hair and denouncing the pressures imposed on them by a patriarchal society which emphasises flawless beauty as the key to career and marital success. The trend, which has spread across social media and has been dubbed the “remove corset” movement, is the latest in a series of feminist initiatives in South Korea since the MeToo campaign began. Lina Bae, a beauty YouTuber, racked...
