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.

If You're Going Through Infertility, You're Not Alone

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.

Why Morrissey Still Matters

Jon Paul Fiorentino | Posted 05.07.2013 | Canada Music
Jon Paul Fiorentino

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?

2012-06-18-ShannonSkinner.jpg 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.

The concept of the "push present" is sweeping delivery rooms all over North America. Notionally, I get it. A proud new father witnesses the love of his life enduring the miracle of birth and wants to give her something nice for her hardship/efforts/bravery/magic. But are push presents now a thing?
