It’s a terrifying thought: being put under anesthesia and, while you are under, having unwanted or unnecessary procedures performed on you. But according to an article in Canada’s the Globe and Mail, it’s exactly what’s happening in many Canadian teaching hospitals—medical students are being instructed to perform gynecological exams on unconscious women. In the US and the UK, written consent is required, but in Canada, according to the article, “guidelines state that pelvic examination by trainees is ‘implicit.
We’ve gotten a sneak peek at Sonia Rykiel’s new line for H&M, and, being as that the pieces so far sport fun colors, bows, and bedazzling, we love it. Rykiel, known for her knits, brings adorable sweaters and accessories from her French boutiques to the public with this collection, her second with the Swedish retailer.     The playful yet wearable pieces will almost certainly be a hit, though H&M has seen its share of controversy lately.
From her cinema debut in Real Women Have Curves to her TV takeover as  Ugly Betty, America Ferrera has built a career on playing the most relatable female characters in pop culture today. Here, she talks with her close friend and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costar, Amber Tamblyn. When was the moment that you felt like you knew you were going to do something big, regardless of how  people treated you? I think the first time I felt that moment was when I was seven years old. [laughs] Oh, my God.

If you like making x's with needle and thread, then you might just like saying xoxo this year with a pair of cross-stitched pillows. This  DIY kit is available from the creative geniuses at Clothkits, a UK company that is known for making pre-stamped fabric that you cut out and sew together to make adorable clothes.
Standard DOUBLE-Page Spread.At first when I saw the pics of Senator Scott Brown doing his best Burt Reynolds impression in Cosmo, I was like, "whatevs, of course this won't be a big deal- he's a dude".  It didn't shock me; it also didn't shock my grandmother or Scott Brown's grandmother for that matter- "My Grandmother saw it. She laughed", he informed Barbara Walters, Sunday in his interview on ABC's 'This Week.' Jane's Addiction told me in 1988- "Nothing's Shocking" and this still holds up today.
  Oh Karen O, how we adore thee! It's easy to say we've got nothing but love for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, they graced the cover of BUST back in '06 and are still rocking our worlds to this day. With the release of It's Blitz in 2009, the New York City trio presented fans with something a bit different from their previous guitar-driven garage sound; an album full of synth, glitter, and sweaty dance-all-night tracks. In the video for "Skeletons", we see a somewhat softer, slightly spooky side of the band: ghostly images of cemeteries, monochromatic visuals, and Victorian-era meets Elvira garb.
I just had to post this awesome clip from this weeks SNL as it combines four of my favorite things; Dream Catchers, Andy Samberg, John Hamm and my loathing of Saxophone playing.
I really love Top 40's pop/hip hop.  Normally, I just tell people that, as a middle school teacher, I have to listen to it so I can relate to my students.  But it's all lies.  I mean, it does help with the whole relating thing but really it's just so I can dance around my house to Three 6 Mafia.A lot of the time the lyrics are objectifying and gross (the Ying Yang twins got deleted from iTunes one night in a fit of feminist rage).
Surfer Blood's debut album, Astro Coast, was released by Kanine on the 19th, but all the kids have been worked up about them for months. We ran out of room to include a review in our FEB/MAR issue, so HERE IT IS, written with love by our Portland based writer, Elisabeth Wilson.  There are at least two kinds of people who should love Surfer Blood’s debut Astro Coast: people who love '60s hand clappy surf-pop and people who love that '90s indie rock you wanna sing along to while driving at night.
