    A leading lingerie company has joined Japan's fight against high fuel use, unveiling a heated bra for winter. The fluffy creation contains special pads filled with an eco-friendly gel that can be easily heated in a microwave or with a hot water bottle. The design also includes a furry boa designed to double as a winter scarf. Lingerie giant Triumph unveiled the bra months after PM Junichiro Koizumi urged Japan's office workers to ditch ties to save on air conditioning. Being padded, the new bra packs a little more bulk than most regular designs, but the Japanese arm of Triumph...

    A hearing is set over CHP warning that nudity at a Capitol rally will lead to arrests. Mendocino County women who have been baring their breasts at various venues to protest the war in Iraq are in Sacramento federal court seeking an order prohibiting the California Highway Patrol from arresting them during a planned noon demonstration Monday at the Capitol. The women's group, Breasts Not Bombs, is suing CHP Commissioner Mike Brown and two of his officers over a warning that if the women demonstrate while topless, they will be arrested and charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.

    Adding breast cancer to the list of health causes he champions, former President Bill Clinton is establishing a fund in honor of his mother, who died of the disease in 1994. "She had a very upbeat attitude and never thought of herself as dying from the disease but living with it," Clinton said in a telephone interview Thursday with The Associated Press. "She was totally at ease with her own mortality and yet ferocious in fighting against the disease." The Virginia Clinton Kelley Fund will be part of the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund. Clinton and leaders of the advocacy...

    Two former caretakers for Koko, the famous gorilla who communicates with humans using sign language, say they were continually pressured to show Koko their breasts or face the consequences. Nancy Alperin and Kendra Keller are suing Koko's primary caretaker, Dr. Francine "Penny" Patterson, because she allegedly asked them to "perform bizarre sexual acts with Koko" — namely, taking off their tops — to bond with the five-foot-tall, 280-pound female gorilla. "Patterson would interpret certain hand movements made by Koko as a 'demand' to see exposed human nipples," the suit alleges. "[Patterson] made it known to Keller and Alperin that if...

No one knows if the Box Office Fairy is good or evil; she merely casts her spells and lets the market sort out the details, sordid or sublime. Hollywood mortals discovered the denim shorts and asked Jessica Simpson to try them on. They were wicked pleased with what they saw, and commissioned a script.

Schmid The Associated Press Published: Jul 29, 2005 WASHINGTON (AP) - After a 13-year ban, silicone-gel filled breast implants are another step closer to returning to the market. Following the recommendations of an advisory panel, the Food and Drug Administration told Mentor Corp. on Thursday that its implants can be approved under certain conditions. "We are very encouraged by this communication from the FDA, and view this letter as a positive sign for women and their surgeons that another option will soon be available," said Joshua H.

Nicole Babb stripped off her clothes, raised her hands in the air and then got down on all fours as those in court looked on. Eventually, bailiff's approached her, covered her and escorted her away. Babb's bond was set at $5,000. She is accused of identity theft.

    RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) - Armed bandits in Brazil robbed a vehicle carrying more than 400 breast implants, officials said on Tuesday. "It happened last week, but we only learned about it recently as our clients started complaining. It is the hottest period of the year in terms of implant sales," said Margaret Figueiredo, director of silicone implant manufacturer Silimed. A spokesman for the state Postal Service confirmed that assailants, apparently men, robbed the postal van with implants on Thursday night in Rio de Janeiro. Each Silimed breast implant costs nearly $400. The popularity of Brazil's plastic surgery pioneer...

    DAYTONA BEACH -- Elizabeth Book stood near four bare-breasted Grecian muse sculptures on Peabody Auditorium's wall. Accompanied by one supporter Saturday, she held a protest flag that read "Sic Semper Tyrannis," -- Greek for "thus occurs to tyrants" -- and a portrait of a woman warrior with one breast bared. Book's eyes full of fear, she stood fully aware of the consequences of what she was about to do. Then, gradually, she pulled down her tube top exposing her breasts to an audience of a couple of bystanders, a reporter and a photographer. Two unmarked and one marked police vehicles...

    There is apparently a spectacular new video tape of a bigfoot, that was shot in Manitoba, Canada. It will be shown today on Foxes "A Current Affair", along with commentary by bigfoot researchers. Supposedly people who are in total denial about Bigfoot have walked away after watching the tapes convinced that Bigfoot is real. I have seen a computer enhanced version of the Patterson video. The creature is clearly a female, with swinging breasts. Anyways, just a placemarker for interested folks.

    Thirteen years after most silicone-gel breast implants were banned, federal health advisers on Tuesday narrowly rejected a manufacturer's request to bring them back to the U.S. market, citing lingering questions about safety and durability. Inamed Corp. had argued that today's silicone implants are less likely to break and leak than versions sold years ago. But the Food and Drug Administration was skeptical, and its advisers voted 5-4 that the company hasn't provided enough evidence about how long the implants will last -- and what happens when they break and ooze silicone into the breast, or beyond. Without that information, "How...

    The U.S. circulated three Sudan resolutions Tuesday in the hope of breaking a Security Council (SC) deadlock on the issue and move to impose sanctions and deploy peacekeepers in the region. It's hoped that by breaking up the single resolution it has been pushing since mid-February, Washington would set aside the divisive issue of punishing alleged perpetrators of crimes in the Darfur region. The council has increasingly come under strong international pressure to act quickly especially over the issue of Darfur, where a two-year conflict has escalated and where a U.N. commission has said crimes against humanity have occurred

    Breast size determines personality An Italian sex researcher claims he can tell a woman's personality from the size and shape of her breasts. According to German newspaper Bild sexologist Piero Lorenzoni said: "A woman's breasts denote a woman's character, just like her star sign." He has categorised breast types according to fruits and says men can draw up their own horoscope-type chart that indicates what a woman's chest size says about her. The fruity chart starts naturally with the traditional melon. According to Lorenzoni, a woman with large, round breasts like a melon may appear motherly, but is far from...

    Why is it than when anyone tries to have fun, some left-wing radicals go ballistic. Such is the case with a few radio stations who held a contest entitled "Breast Christmas Ever" in which thirteen women got boob jobs. Nobody was exploited, no animals or rain forests were injured, just good old-fashioned naughty fun. It is not like the radio stations had to twist women's arms either. Over 91,000 entries were sent to the Tampa station holding the promotion. Thirteen women got bigger hooters, and I say God Bless America.

Some women have complained bitterly recently that the more thorough pat-downs to check for explosives just went to far - especially in the breast area. Federal News Radio AM 1050/WTOP has learned the examination in that area, and possibly other areas, will be tempered. People have been searched more intensely, including in intimate areas, since September, after...

The finding suggests breast exposure by women in England and in the Netherlands during the 17th century was more accepted than it is in most countries today. Researchers, for example, say Janet Jackson's Super Bowl baring would not even have raised eyebrows in the 17th century....

Next to the mock crime scene tape was a black banner saying: "Temporarily censored." "We decided that an arrest, knowing how this town...

Pennapa Subcharoen, deputy director-general of the ministry's department of traditional medicine, said Thai women had been bombarded with images of big-busted women via the media and many felt they were inadequate. "Many women are not aware that wearing an appropriate size of bra and regularly taking bosom-firming dance can make their wish come true," Pennapa said.
