Good for her.  This part is just sad:

Quote :
Skin bleaching is a big problem in Africa and Asia where millions of women use whitening creams to try and fit into a world dominated by Western standards of beauty

Since when does the "Western standards of beauty" include being white? That went out about 30 or more years ago.

There sure are. It's such a shame that a long-outdated perception still persists in parts of the world.

Too many. "Fair" is business here in a big way, women and men as well.

It's so strange and so UNNECESSARY. My company employs quite a few Indian women and there are several that I would describe as gorgeous.

I might not have either except the name "Lancaster County" caught my attention because that's where my brother lives. Cool

Have you ever seen video of this guy?  I think he's amazing.

Quote :

A Canadian man ran the Chicago Marathon while juggling three balls and completed the race in less than three hours without dropping a single ball. Michal Kapral, who also refers to himself as "The Joggler," finished the race in two hours and 55 minutes, as he attempted to top his "joggling" marathon world record of two hours and 50 minutes. "My main goal was break my 2:50 record, but I had a somewhat secret secondary goal of joggling a marathon without a drop in under 3 hours," Kapral wrote in a blog post. While Kapral didn't achieve his primary goal, he managed to cross the finish line without a single drop despite some close calls. He's completed a total of 33 marathons including his world record time at the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 2007 and shouted triumphantly as he added a new accomplishment to his resume in Chicago.

Me either Eilene. I'm the biggest klutz on the planet. When I was a kid my mom called me "her little elephant" because I was always tromping around bumping into things and knocking stuff over. I haven't changed any all these years later.

That's absolutely incredible.

I think my wife is the biggest klutz on the planet. She's fallen out of her chair at work a few times and hurt herself.

I have no idea how he does an entire marathon doing that and doesn't drop a ball once.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/owner-discovers-shocking-reason-why-his-beagle-sneezed-for-6-months-straight/

Owner shocked to discover why his beagle sneezed for 6 months straight

Mark Kovicak poses with his 2-year-old beagle, Rex.
For months, dog owner Mark Kovicak has been scratching his head.

His beloved 2-year-old beagle named Rex has been experiencing nosebleeds and chronic sneezing for nearly 6 months, and Kovicak had no idea what was wrong.

One day, Rex playfully ran into the woods after a rabbit – the next, he was sneezing up a storm, and a trail of blood soon followed.




/ BluePearl Veterinary Partners

After several Google searches, trips to the vet and various prescribed antibiotics, Kovicak finally got the answer he was looking for.

Dr. Kristopher Sharpe of BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Grand Rapids, Michigan, held up a CT scan that showed a “long straight object” inside the dog’s nasal passageway.

The veterinarian immediately conducted a rhinoscopy, using a small tube with a light and lens to view the object from inside the nostril and from the back of Rex’s throat. Sharpe then used a tool to pull a nearly 5-inch-long stick out of the dog’s nose.

Problem solved.

It was an unusual case for the emergency pet hospital.

“Our doctors see a fair amount of strange foreign bodies, but usually the’ve been swallowed and usually they’re not found in a pet’s nose,” Carrie O’Brion, communications manager for BluePearl Veterinary Partners, told CBS News.



This is the nearly 5-inch-long stick that was pulled from Rex’s nostril during surgery.

Luckily, Sharpe managed to get the object out before any serious damage was done.

“The body attempts to wall off and remove any foreign object within the nose. If the stick was significantly smaller, then his immune system would have walled it off and slowly broken down the material,” Sharpe explained. “Given the size of the stick, his body would have attempted to wall off the inflammation but the wood material would have remained.”

If the stick hadn’t been discovered and removed, Rex would have continue to have discharge, irritation and inflammation long-term. Eventually, the dog would have developed a systemic infection that would become “life-threatening,” Sharpe said.

Within days after the procedure, Rex was back to his normal, playful self.

“I felt like hugging him,” Kovicak said after the surgery, according to the vets’ news release. “Honestly, I had tears of joy.”

It was clear Rex’s owner felt a great sense of relief.

“He was just so relieved, as I can only imagine – your dog experiencing discomfort for months and to not know what was causing it,” O’Brion said. “He had his dog back; the dog that he knew and loved.”

Now Rex can get back to chasing rabbits, though it may be best if he stays away from sticks for a while.
