Author Joan Walker and Canadian country superstar Michelle Wright have something in common: in the midst of busy lives in the public eye, both women volunteer with World Vision Canada. Joan's recent conversation with Michelle sheds light on many aspects of the world renowned singer-songwriter's life, including her deep love for children overseas in desperate need.
Certainly women are driven to ask about genetic testing given a strong fear of breast cancer and a strong belief that early testing saves lives, but USPSTF feared many of the new customers lining up for the test would be classified as the "worried well" who would be unlikely to carry the rare genetic mutation and hence would receive no benefit from being screened.
While it is certainly true that this invasion of personal space across the digital space has violated the privacy of many celebrities, what does this scandal mean for the everyday woman? The average young woman would most likely not have the assistance of the FBI or Apple in bringing the hackers to justice. In fact, she may suffer from shame, encounter stigma or face bullying from her peers. Her everyday life may not be as public as Jennifer Lawrence's superstar existence, but a single image of her can become a viral threat just as quickly.
Before you go out and get the extensions you should be aware of the maintenance involved. You need to be more careful washing your face. After you get eyelash extensions done for the first 24 hours you cannot get your eyelashes wet, but after that, they can get wet and are great for beach vacations.
I have always felt that it is possible to have the world of luxury and sustainable fashion come together. If these two powerful combinations could meet, I am sure more people would be open to making the change to environmentally friendly trends. Luckily, my dreams are coming true. More and more there are greater options for vegan fashion.
Despite the fact that one in six couples in North America has difficulty conceiving, infertility is still something with a lot of stigma attached to it. Few people openly discuss their fertility struggles, and many people experience shame. As an infertility counsellor, I see many women whose identity, body image, and self-esteem erode as they struggle to conceive while, seemingly, everyone else gets pregnant with ease around them.
So somebody's taped you. Doing something. Say, smoking crack cocaine. Maybe having sex. Maybe having sex while smoking crack cocaine. Regardless, the tape in question was for your eyes only, and now here it is, hanging out in public, without any permission from you. What do you do? What can you do? Well, you can learn from the leaked tapes of celebrities past.
I've watched enough rabid fans make terrible stalking mistakes only to be shut down by security to know exactly how I would track down my favourite celebs if one day I were to lose my press credentials (knock on wood). So you want to meet famous people, too? Forget the TIFF 2013 premiere schedule; you've got much smarter stalking to do.
Some of the best places to spot celebs will be in those hotels, restaurants and coffee shops near the TIFF Bell Lightbox on King Street West or in the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood uptown. Both the King Street West Starbucks and the Starbucks between Yorkville and Bloor will be filled with Star power.
Morrissey (as an artist and public figure) has always had the uncanny ability to charm and repel at the same time. His staunch animal rights activism, his hatred of the throne, his refusal to adhere to any of the tenets of accepted celebrity behaviour have often landed him in hot water. But what's wrong with a little hot water when today's music and music industry is so depressingly tepid?
As a talk show host, I love to delve into the what inspires the hearts of my guests -- and their success secrets. I also know there is a price to pay for success. The question is: what is the price you are willing to pay? Every goal we set out to achieve has a price tag attached. When we look at the big picture, we must determine if we are willing to pay the price to follow our desires.
