…What? This is absolutely unbelievable. Toddlers & Tiaras is a reality show from TLC follows the controversial world of child beauty pageants. It is currently in its fifth season. Regardless of your feelings on the subject, be it that you view the beauty contests to be great fun and take delight in the spectacle, or you feel that they exploit young girls to be fodder for pedophilia, I think we can agree that parts of last night’s episode were…truly outrageous. {source} <img style="visibility:hidden;width:0px;height:0px;" border=0 width=0 height=0 src="http://c.gigcount.

“She was a Socialist, a Feminist, a movie critic, and a tell-it-like-it-is type of person. She learned English by going to theaters, which she loved. She wore a men's jacket, men's shoes and a large hat most of the time. She was constantly taking pictures, which she didn't show anyone.” (John Maloof, via http://vivianmaier.blogspot.com/) It is the classic tale of the unknown talent. Vivian Maier has been described as perhaps one of the best street photographers of the 20th century.

It happened slowly. Drugstores' stocks of ob tampons began slowly dwindling. You probably figured your drugstore sucked and never restocks their shelves with anything anyway, and that eventually your trusted, beloved ob tampon would reappear. But they haven't. As it's been reported on elsewhere, it's not just your drugstore that's out of them. In fact, ob tampons are now nowhere to be found. Which is why they are now showing up on ebay, selling for $50 a pop.

Just when you thought hipsters could not live any more "alternative," they went and decided to have their own cruise.

  I love calendars. One of the things I consider when choosing one is if there's space to write in it. I'm the type of person who uses their calendar as a planner, so when I look at my wall I have my schedule right there! Brooklyn artist, Caroline Pequita has a perfect calendar for this. She hand-drew all the images, and printed them herself on light paper that you can write on. The calendar is full of the adorable creatures she calls Womanimals and other whimsical critters. I also love mini-calendars so I can keep track of my schedule on the go.

In areas of China where the pressure to find employment is rising, female students are also struggling with the need to stay trim. Daily Mail reports that, in order to lose weight to impress employers in job interviews, Chinese students have been resorting to swallowing roundworm eggs. “They hatch in the stomach, allowing those who take them to shed pounds without exercising or dieting in the Xiamen, China. But swallowing the worms is extremely dangerous - and definitely not to be recommended for those wanting to shed the pounds in the New Year.” Rob Cooper reports.

Cancer impacts everyone at some point in their life. This is a cause I'm very passionate about! In May of this year, I lost my mother to a 22 year battle with Breast Cancer.  That event has changed my life.  After her death, I was finding a need to do something, help the cause in some way, the fight against cancer.  I looked for ways to become involved in a local community where my efforts could directly and immediately help those who are supporting a loved one through the fight.

Between covering Cee Lo Green on Glee in November and starring as a fallen country music star in the much-anticipated Country Strong, Gwyneth Paltrow has certainly been showcasing her musical ability as of late.   It is especially delightful to watch the refined actress in one of her more humorous musical explots…in teaming up with Jimmy Fallon to bring us Shazzazz, a fictional R&B duo. The pair first unveiled their efforts on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last Spring, and had a triumphant return just last night.

Residents of Beebe, Arkansas woke up on New Year's Day to massive hangovers and kitchens full of empty champagne bottles. Also,  5,000 DEAD BLACKBIRDS stretching over a one mile area. While officials still can't say for certain what caused the mass death, some are speculating that New Year's Eve fireworks are to blame. Crazier still is that a day before and only 125 miles away, 100,000 dead fish were found in the Arkansas river. And today, 500 dead birds (including the red-winged blackbirds found in Beebe) were discovered along a quarter mile of Louisiana highway.
