Tue, 31 Mar 2015 05:12:56 GMT


An interesting development occurred before everyone laced up their Danskins on Monday's Dancing with the Stars - Noah Galloway was fixing to dance with a prosthetic arm! The Alabama native picked up a space-age prosthetic limb that "works through sensors in the sockets that touch what's remaining of my tricep and bicep," he told PEOPLE.

Silk Dresses: Anorexia Isn't Sexy
Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:26:12 -0500


There have been recent reports that France is considering becoming the latest country to ban the use of underweight fashion models. If it takes this step, France will follow countries like Israel and Spain in a crusade to prevent young women from being led by their desire for a glamorous figure into a life-threatening eating disorder. This trend is based on the growing suspicion that for too many young people, anorexia, one of the most deadly of mental illnesses, has become a trap baited by the fashion industry's obsession with tall thin underweight women and the media's glorification of its celebrity models. If it is not freely capable of overcoming its delusion that thin is better, the fashion industry must be compelled by legislation to come more into line with the male perception of feminine beauty.
