    Matt Taylor, who's a great scientist and seems to also be a pretty cool dude, gave a teary, heartfelt apology for his choice of attire on the day of Rosetta's probe landing. "I made a big mistake, and I offended many people," Taylor said at Friday's media briefing, his voice trembling, "and I'm very sorry about this." With that, the briefing moved onto the science (as it should -- Philae's days are numbered, and we want to find out as much as we can from the little probe that could). Taylor seemed to have trouble speaking for a few minutes,...

The Reflect Your Respect campaign, launched by the Qatar Islamic Cultural Center, has listed some advice and tips for tourists on how to dress modestly in preparation for the 2022 Football World Cup it is hosting.

  • Michelle Obama's got the Feith as she steps out in favourite frock for the FIFTH time

    It's no secret that Michelle Obama loves Tracy Feith - she's been seen wearing his frocks on countless occasions. But there is one design, it seems, that she loves above all others. The U.S. First Lady proved the style staying power of the designer's wisteria print dress, which she first wore in January 2009, at the launch of her Lets Move Childcare campaign. She was pictured playing with children on a visit to the Centronia Bilingual Child Care Center in Washington in the Fifties-style floral number, which she teamed with lavender-coloured flats Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2001606/Michelle-Obamas-got-Feith-steps-favourite-frock-FIFTH-time.html#ixzz1OnfURE8d

    Michelle Obama is today launching a campaign to tackle childhood obesity in America – while admitting that she loves unhealthy food. The First Lady has urged children to become more active, but confesses to eating burgers, fries, ice-cream and cake. The Let’s Move initiative, outlined by President Barack Obama’s wife today, aims to teach youngsters how to increase their daily physical exercise. It also pushes for schools to offer more healthy meals and calls on food companies to label nutritional information more accurately. Some of her initiatives, such as tax breaks for grocery stores to move into poorly served communities,...

    Schools are following Tesco's example and taking a stand against parents who turn up at the gates wearing pyjamas. They are chastising parents for dropping children off - and collecting them in the afternoon - without first changing out of their nightwear and slippers. One head has written to parents warning that their failure to get dressed for the school run is 'slovenly and rude'. He took action after up to 50 mothers a day began arriving in the mornings wearing pyjamas and slippers. The moves comes after a Tesco store in Cardiff took the unprecedented step of banning customers...

    Yes, more important things came out of President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Wednesday (Jan. 27) night than what his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, was wearing. Still, Chris Matthews has the attention-grabbing, out-of-context statement "I forgot he was black" covered. And the American citizens are full of responses to his 70-minute speech that ranged from everything to the economy to health care, national security to getting rid of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. So, back to secondary things: What was Michelle wearing? A tasteful aubergine dress with three-quarter-length sleeves from designer Isaac Mizrahi. ...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - People with fat in their thighs and backsides may live longer because the fat traps harmful fatty particles and actively secretes helpful compounds, according to a report published on Tuesday. Many studies have shown that people who accumulate fat around the abdomen and stomach are more likely to die of heart disease and other causes than bottom-heavy people, but the reasons are not clear. This may be because several different mechanisms are involved, said Konstantinos Manolopoulos of Britain's University of Oxford.
