    Since the premiere of real-life criminal drama shows "The Dropout" and "Inventing Anna," America has become enraptured with the stories of Elizabeth Holmes and Anna Sorokin. Each series resulted in numerous hot takes on social media, with discourse around how two women managed to dupe the country's "elite" and heads of multi-million dollar companies, using what turned out to be elaborate schemes. We are not here to discuss whether the victims of these scams deserved their fates, or whether the consequences matched the crime, but rather illuminate one fact that has become clear with these stories: these women were only...
  • Humans Infected With 'Mind-Altering' Parasite Seen as More Attractive (cat parasite)

    The single-celled protozoan Toxoplasma gondii is a fascinating parasite. Replicating only in cat intestines, it is excreted in feces and subsequently spreads to many other organisms, not just felines. Inside these critters, it winds its way to the brain and transforms into numerous cysts, patiently waiting to return to its desired nine-lived host. But, though dormant, it is not entirely inert. T. gondii actually alters its host's behavior. Mice, for example, grow less fearful of cats, making them easier prey. Just like T. gondii wanted... Humans are also affected by T. gondii. About one in ten Americans and a third...
  • According to Science, Bella Hadid is the Most Beautiful Woman in the World

    According to a study by renowned cosmetic surgeon Julian De Silva, Bella Hadid holds the crown for the most beautiful woman in the world. De Silva compiled his list of top 10 women by using what is referred to as the Golden Ratio theory. This "divine proportion" was theorized in Ancient Greece, then used during the Renaissance by esteemed artists to create perfect works of art. Relishing in modern-day time, the cosmetic surgeon has made completely different use of the rule in order to reveal which women are mathematically close to physical perfection. To calculate this golden number of beauty,...

    A woman who jumped to her death from a skyscraper in New York City on Sunday morning has been identified as former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst. Kryst, 30, was a lawyer and also worked as a correspondent for the entertainment show Extra. She won the Miss USA pageant in 2019. Kryst, who had an apartment on the ninth floor of the building, leaped from the Midtown high-rise around 7:15am and was found dead on the sidewalk beneath the 60-story hi-rise. She had last been seen on one of the building's terrace, up on the 29th-floor.

    As every woman knows, there’s no such thing as the perfect body. But that has not stopped scientists from quantifying every inch of the female form. From eyelash length to ankle circumference, experts have devised countless mathematical formulae to determine the scientific ideal of beauty. While some date back to ancient times and have been employed by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, others have been dreamt up by modern-day beauty professionals. This week, a survey by cosmetic surgery provider, Transform Hospital Group, revealed that many of the most requested facial traits seen in celebrities conform to these statistics.

    By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows: Section 1. Purpose. Societies have long recognized the importance of beautiful public architecture. Ancient Greek and Roman public buildings were designed to be sturdy and useful, and also to beautify public spaces and inspire civic pride. Throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, public architecture continued to serve these purposes. The 1309 constitution of the City of Siena required that “[w]hoever rules the City must have the beauty of the City as his foremost...

    When the now-successful family practice doctor was interviewed for a place at medical school at the start of her career, the interviewer bluntly asked her whether she had cheated on her Medical College Admission Test. “Usually we don’t see women with your hair color score this well,” he pronounced. The then-22-year-old blonde was shocked, but she held her head high and replied: “No, I didn’t cheat — I worked very hard to achieve that score.” Nine years on, successfully employed as the only female partner in a Las Vegas family health practice, the doctor is still being undermined because of...

    As the Republican National Convention wrapped up last night, an amazing thing happened. Schubert's Ave Maria was sung in Latin by opera singer, Christopher Macchio. It was a beautiful moment. This was a master-stroke by Trump, likely suggested by Melania. I have posted it on some Catholic F-Book groups and it is being shared like wildfire. If you missed it, have a listen.

    While the rest of us can’t imagine life without beauty, its absence would certainly make life easier for evolutionists. They will just have to accept their beautiful plight. I don’t often think about evolution, but I recently found myself doing so under the warm, cerulean waters of Sharks Cove on the North Shore of Oahu. I was snorkeling, taking in the tropical fish schooling around me. I thought, how did their diverse and extravagant beauty come to exist? If natural selection is the engine that created the living world, what is the reason behind this opulence? Why does beauty even...

  • How a Good Lent Can Help Fix a Bad Economy

    02/29/2020 3:59:03 PM PST · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 9 replies
    To those who see no link between Lent and our failing economy, it might be the case to look again. Economics is about people. It cannot be reduced to numbers, formulae and analyses. “The subject matter of economics,” observes economic historian Odd Langholm, “is properly the habits, customs, and ways of thinking of producers, consumers, buyers, sellers, borrowers, lenders, and all who engage in economic transactions.” That means our moral habits can have a definite effect on determining if our economy grows — or fails. In my new book, Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian...

    Women are less likely to don high heels if they are going on a date with a man they think is ugly, a controversial study has found. Scientists quizzed 292 female university students, who were all straight, about how often they wear stilettos or other types of the shoe. The volunteers were asked if they would wear high heels or a flat sole shoe if they went on a date with two men plucked from Google Images. One of them was considered to be very attractive by a panel of 14 separate women, the other was deemed to be the...
