    NBC has set the counterculture classic “Hair” as its live musical presentation next spring. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who have executive produced all of the network’s live musicals since “The Sound of Music” revived the genre — including this year’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert”— will do so again.

    Tucked in the pages of a grimy, leather-bound almanac in the archives at New York's Union College was a tiny envelope with the hand-scrawled words "Washington's hair." A librarian who had been cataloging old books gingerly opened the yellowed envelope to find a lock of silvery hair tied with a thread. "It was one of those mind-blowing moments that happen every once in a while in a librarian's life," said John Myers, a catalog and metadata librarian at the college. "I thought, that doesn't mean George Washington, does it?" It apparently does.

    New York Daily News ^ | January 5, 2018 | NICOLE BITETTE and NANCY DILLON
    When Ben Vereen held auditions for “Hair” at a community theatre in Florida in 2015, the Tony winner said he wanted to break new ground with the rock musical. But in a sickening twist, several young actresses cast in the show claim the Broadway legend’s sexually abusive behavior nearly broke them. The women — part of the Venice Theatre production outside of Tampa — say Vereen forced unwanted kisses, hugged them aggressively, stripped naked during an acting exercise and made degrading comments about their weight, sex appeal and personal lives.

    In this artwork, hair follicles grow radially out of spherical skin organoids, which contain concentric epidermal and dermal layers (central structure). Skin organoids self-assemble and spontaneously generate many of the progenitor cells observed during normal development, including cells expressing the protein GATA3 in the hair follicles and epidermis (red). Credit: Jiyoon Lee and Karl R. Koehler =========================================================================================================================== Indiana University School of Medicine researchers have cultured the first lab-grown skin tissue complete with hair follicles.

  • Martin Shkreli Is Jailed for Seeking a Hair From Hillary Clinton (ewww)

    Martin Shkreli, the former pharmaceutical executive who is awaiting sentencing for a fraud conviction, was sent to jail on Wednesday after a federal judge revoked his bail because he had offered $5,000 for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair. Mr. Shkreli, who was free on $5 million bail while he awaited sentencing, had made two Facebook posts offering cash to anyone who could “grab a hair” from Mrs. Clinton during her book tour. At the hearing in Federal District Court in Brooklyn, Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto said that Mr. Shkreli’s post could be perceived as a true threat. “That is...

    Hindustan Times ^ | August 4, 2017 | Mass hysteria not black magic behind growing hair-chopping incidents: Experts
    A day after a 60-year-old woman was killed in Uttar Pradesh on suspicion of cutting off people’s hair and 11 more women complained of braids being chopped off in Delhi-NCR on Thursday, psychiatrists blamed mass hysteria as panic spread. Police, too, have requested people not look at these incidents as a “supernatural phenomenon” or work of a ghost. “From all the available evidence, it seems the women are cutting their own hair either consciously or in an altered sensorium, likely to seek attention,” said Dr Sudhir Khandelwal, former head of the department of psychiatry at All India Institute of Medical...

    North Korea’s government hauled out some unusual insults Friday to denounce U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner after the Colorado Republican called Kim Jong Un, the country’s young dictator, a “whack job” and a “crazed maniac” amid heightening nuclear tensions. Calling Gardner “a man mixed in with human dirt … who has lost basic judgment and body hair,” a spokesman for Pyongyang’s foreign ministry said the senator had “perpetrated wicked blasphemy against our supreme dignity,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported.

    A debate held in the British parliament on Thursday regarding human rights violations and the post-coup situation in Turkey has called on the UK government to take a tougher stance on Ankara. Secured by Labour deputy Joan Ryan, the 90-minute debate was the first discussion on Turkey in four and half years and was attended by almost 20 MPs. Opening the debate Ryan criticised Prime Minister Theresa May's recent Ankara visit and said she had signed an arms deal but remained silent on human rights violations. "Business deals can never replace human rights. The government does not have Turkey's human...

    Love Trumps Hate! Love Trumps Hate!” This mantra has been riccocheting noisily through our streets for the past several months, usually interspersed with other anti-Trump chants including: “Not My President!”; “No Trump! No Fear! Refugees Are Welcome Here!”; and “No Trump! No KKK! No Fascist USA!" So chanted the belligerent throngs of Disrupt J20, as they engaged in KKK/Fascist-style tactics and linked arms to illegally block American citizens — men, women, young people, and children, including military servicemen in uniform — who had journeyed to Washington, D.C. on January 20 to peacefully attend the inauguration of President Donald John Trump. “Love Trumps...

    A month after the surprise election of Donald Trump in November (surprising to noone more than to Trump and Clinton), the losers are still working through the stages of anguish in ways that seem strange to many observers but of which they appear oddly proud. Not only do they brag of the length and intensity of their bouts of sobbing - "crying as if someone died" was a common description - but, as New York magazine reported days later, professional women all over the country are making a brave stand to protest Trump's election by doing hideous things to their...

    It's a part of ageing that many men dread. And now a study has confirmed what many a receding man fears - that hair loss does reduce attractiveness. Scientists found that follically challenged men were rated as more youthful, attractive, successful and approachable after a hair transplant. A group of 122 participants, about half of whom were also men, were asked by researchers at Johns Hopkins University to rate 13 pairs of images.

    America doesn’t like Megyn Kelly – and nowhere was that more apparent than during the premiere of her Fox Special starring Donald Trump. She only managed to gather 4.7 Million viewers and finished last for the 8:00pm time slot. Devastating. However, her ratings failure wasn’t a backlash against Trump, who garners high ratings wherever he goes. Well, as long as Megyn “Ratings Killer” Kelly isn’t around. Quite the contrary, this was a loud and clear “We don’t like you” message to the self-centered and bias Kelly who has fallen from Fox grace in the most epic fashion. It’s a nose-dive,...

    Roseville, Ca. - For two years, 7-year-old Vinny Desautels grew out his hair to help kids with cancer. "I want to help people so they don't have to go to the doctors to fight cancer." Thirteen inches of hair was gone with the snip of some scissors. "And then everyone got excited when mom cut the ponytails off. I was happy," Vinny said. But life can sometimes take a cruel turn. "My eye was getting heavy." "It is Stage 4 aggressive cancer," said Jason. A little boy who gave selflessly to help those suffering with cancer is now battling the...
