Serena Williams' superhero sense snapped into action on Tuesday night when a thief attempted to snatch her phone while she was eating dinner at a Chinese restaurant. She wrote on her Facebook early yesterday morning, "I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the cozy restaurant (leaping over a chair or two) and chased him down. He began to run but I was too fast.

Claudia McNeilly published an article in Broadly. on Tuesday, which caused orthorexia to go viral. Compared to clinically recognized anorexia and bulimia, orthorexia, with its almost 20 year history (after being coined by Dr. Steven Bratman in a 1997 essay), is the new kid on the block when...
