Victoria's Secret's 'Perfect Body' Campaign Shows How Society Encourages Female Body-Shaming

Looking back at my adolescence, I remember a particular episode with great clarity: seeing cellulite on my legs for the first time when I was 19 and inducing myself into a state of panic. I went out and bought body brushes and moisturisers to try and tackle this unsightly, humiliating flaw. My thought process was that if I started dealing with my cellulite now, perhaps I wouldn't have to feel ashamed and embarrassed by my body when I was older. Underpinning this whole thought process was the belief that I would no longer be attractive or desirable if I had cellulite- I would not be perfect. I would be flawed, tarnished.

How Our Views Of Obesity Have Changed, From Ancient Times Until Today

Getting "fat" used to give us a genetic edge: When food was scarce, we needed to store backup reserves of energy, because we couldn't always guarantee when or where we'd find our next meal.
"This ability to store surplus fat from the least possible amount of food intake may have made the difference between life and death, not only for the individual but also -- more importantly -- for the species," Garabed Eknoyan, M.D., of the Baylor College of Medicine, wrote in a 2006 history of obesity. "Those who could store fat easily had an evolutionary advantage in the harsh environment of early hunters and gatherers."

3 Things You Have To Give Up To Lose Weight Forever

To be healthier and happier, Tory Johnson, author of The Shift, discovered that she had to let go of three particular things.
By Tory Johnson
1. The Cheat Day
For years, I was lulled into the moderation trap, a bedrock of nutrition advice that works flawlessly for some women but is a disaster for others. Supposedly, as long as I limited myself to a few bites here or there, I could eat onion rings, rice and chocolate cake -- anything, really -- and not gain weight. Trouble is, I never ate just a few bites. A couple chips led to the whole bag, and, before long, I was out of control again. Ditto for the oft-advised "cheat day." For me, rewarding healthy eating with unhealthy foods was akin to an alcoholic celebrating a month of sobriety with a beer. It didn't work. When it comes to eating, I was not blessed with the moderation gene. Once I stopped struggling with moderation, my life got a whole lot easier.

40 Photos From An Epic Road Trip Through North Korea

LAKE CHON, North Korea (AP) — When North Korea opens its doors, it does so for a reason. So it was when the authoritarian government granted permission for a road trip so extensive that few North Koreans — let alone a pair of American journalists — could imagine taking it.
We drove 2,150 kilometers (1,336 miles) in a country that has barely 25,000 kilometers of road, and only 724 kilometers of those paved. By the time we returned to the capital a week later, our Chinese-made Great Wall SUV had a few new scratches and one less hubcap.Our official destination was majestic Mount Paektu, with its jagged peaks surrounding a crystal-blue crater lake. North Korea is pursuing a plan to create dozens of special foreign investment and tourism zones, and this is one of the places it most wants to promote.
The easiest way to get there is to fly, but we had been granted permission to drive. This, we were told, would mean traveling through places that no foreign journalists had been allowed to see before.
Still, the trip was on North Korea's terms.

Even on the loneliest of lonely highways, we would never be without a "minder," whose job was to monitor and supervise our activities. We were not to take photographs of any checkpoints or military installations, or talk to people we happened to see along the way. For the most part, we were not to detour from our pre-approved route, which, to no one's surprise, didn't include nuclear facilities or prison camps.

(Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)WASHINGTON -- The top government infectious disease specialist warned politicians against Ebola quarantines on Sunday, saying aggressive protocols targeting all health workers who fight the disease are not backed up by good science and could ultimately threaten public health in the United States.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, made several TV appearances Sunday to note that harsh treatment of health workers returning from Africa could backfire, jeopardizing Americans.

"Two expressions that became especially popular with CBS News brass, [Sharyl Attkisson] says, were 'incremental' and 'piling on.'"

"These are code for 'excuses for stories they really don’t want, even as we observe that developments on stories they like are aired in the tiniest of increments.'..."
The administration, with the full cooperation of the media, has successfully turned “Benghazi” into a word associated with nutters, like “Roswell” or “grassy knoll,” but Attkisson notes that “the truth is that most of the damaging information came from Obama administration insiders. From government documents. From sources who were outraged by their own government’s behavior and what they viewed as a coverup.”...

Cook said seeing Michigan players plant a 'dagger' on the field fueled him early in the game...."

Life In The Cloud With Google Apps

Like many people, I’ve been using various cloud services for a few years. But recently I moved my whole life into the cloud, and I thought it would be worth sharing the experience here.
My previous situation was that my files were spread all over the place – the majority on the hard drive of my PC, many on my laptop, a few on my phone and iPad, and anything I needed to share was split between Google Drive and Dropbox. It was a mess! And as someone who travels a lot, I was often in the situation where I had the wrong piece of equipment for whatever I needed to access.

What's it like: To have a planned home birth

Why do families choose home birth?
A woman might choose to have her baby at her home for a variety of reasons. For example, some women might choose home birth after being disappointed or upset with the hospital birth of a previous child. Other women might choose home birth because they want to give birth without medication, and they might feel like that option is more doable outside of a hospital setting, where an epidural, or an anesthesia generally delivered through shots in or around a person’s spine, are readily available. Some women might feel safer having their babies at home than in a hospital. Also, some families might be more comfortable with planned home births for cultural or religious reasons.
When discussing whether to have a planned home birth, it’s important for families to research midwives or physicians they would like to use, interviewing prospective midwives to ensure they are comfortable with their levels of experience and practices. Also, it’s important to have a birth plan in place to ensure that the family knows what will happen in case of emergency.
