    Getting a gun held to your head would be emotionally scarring enough for most. But for Josie Barnes, an armed robber added insult to injury as he branded her a 'fat cow' while he struggled to tie her up. She has since had the last laugh, though - the attacker's haunting words spurred on the pub worker to lose seven stone nine pounds. Josie, 29, went from a size 24 to a size 10 after the terrifying experience. She now weighs 10 stone 2 pounds and will slip into her dream wedding dress when she marries her fiancé Fatih this...

    Michelle Obama went to Boston for $600,000. the Boston Globe spoke glowingly of her words of praise for President Obama. But it was the last paragraph of the piece that was most telling. From the Boston Globe: “Yet while [Elaine] Schuster spoke from typed notes, the first lady used a TelePrompTer, despite the relatively small and friendly audience.” These birdbrains cannot get through a simple speech at a social gathering without a teleprompter. Goodness, he needed two just to speak to a sixth-grade class and he needed one for his first press conference. So here are the words Michelle Obama...

    It has been an action packed week for Michelle Obama. The First Lady began her first official state visit to Africa this week. Leaving the President behind, Michelle and her daughters Sasha and Malia began their five day trip where they will visit South Africa and Botswana. The First Lady said in a video message at the WhiteHouse.gov, "I'm doing this because we know that Africa is a fundamental part of our interconnected world. And when it comes to meeting the challenges of our time, whether it's climate change or extremism, poverty or disease, the world is looking to African...

    ‘Brightstar’ is out there making a name for herself in South Africa during a weeklong trip with every family member in tow, including her brother’s children, but not her husband the president. Brightstar is the name dubbed to Michelle Obama’s plane. Brightstar may flicker brightly over the dark continent but in her own country nothing shines from her. Even though touted loudly as a “goodwill trip”, there must be some South Africans wondering why it took America’s First Lady almost three years to disperse her goodwill in their country on a weeklong trip that leaves lots of room for photo...

She told the audience how she came from modest circumstances and was able to attend top schools and build a career at a big law firm, saying they too can achieve their dreams if they try hard enough. After her speech, she was asked a series of soft questions like, "What advice can you give the youth today?" But at the end of the session, one young person in the audience asked Mrs. Obama, who has devoted...

Mwiza Munthali, public outreach director of TransAfrica Forum, argues that U.S. officials "are not seeing Africa as a big priority. There has been some ambivalence."

Her license is inactive, and it was voluntary, but her choices were not choices you or I might want to face. It appears that she chose to go inactive because she was facing some disciplinary action. We know this because we have a screen shot of the disciplinary record under...

Out of 436 districts measured by the Well-Being Index—including the 435 U.S. Congressional Districts plus the District of Columbia—the 1st Congressional District of Illinois ranked 436th for the “healthy behavior” of its residents in 2010.

    In a post I wrote regarding Michelle Obama and her plans to parent our children for us, I remarked about her $495 Tory Burch gardening boots. A few of the comments wondered why I brought them up, and why, as a capitalist, would I have a problem with pricey shoes? The boots were mentioned to remind readers of how out of touch with reality the First Lady is. The average American mama doesn’t have a single pair of shoes in her closet that cost that much, let alone gardening boots. When I’m inclined to work outdoors, I put on a...

    And they said he had a short fuse before- lookout staffers Not so sure I'm buying it, but Michelle Obama is suddenly making the dubious claim that Barry kicked his smoking habit and has not had a smoke in more than a year's time. The unambiguous statement came in the midst of a lunch/interview with select reporters assembled to mark the first anniversary yesterday for her "Let's Move" anti-childhood obesity campaign. As Mrs. Obama's session with her press corps touched upon various topics, the First Wookie was asked if Obama quit smoking, she said, "Yes he has, yes he has. Very...

    “Clothes are just the thing that you wear to do the stuff you need to do,” first lady Michelle Obama told reporters who lunched with her at the White House on Tuesday. The first lady — who was wearing a Marc Jacobs dress and silver pumps — was, not surprisingly, asked once again about her decision to wear a foreign label dress to the China state dinner in January. “I like to patronize American designers, and the vast majority of the clothes that I wear are [designed by Americans.] But there are a lot of other designers that have cute...

    Original title: 'He DOESN'T dye his hair': Michelle Obama on the President's style, Facebook and her Royal wedding invite (or lack thereof) _____________________________ Yesterday Michelle Obama revealed that her husband hasn't smoked in a year - but it seems that there are some ways in which the U.S. President is fallible. The First Lady said she wished Mr Obama would care more about his appearance, and that she and her daughters cheer when he puts on a brightly-coloured shirt. Speaking on the Today Show, Mrs Obama, 47, was also asked whether her husband, 49, had, in fact, dyed his hair,...

    What does First Lady Michelle Obama want for Valentine’s Day? “Jewelry always,” Mrs. Obama said, “you can’t go wrong.” During an interview with Live With Regis and Kelly the First Lady joked that she hoped her husband was watching her on TV so he’d get a few hints for Valentine’s Day on Monday. [Snip] Mrs. Obama said that her husband is “very romantic” though and remembers dates for special occasions even when she thinks he’s forgotten and she starts to “get a little attitude” with him. “You gotta keep the romance alive, even in the White House,” she added.
