Rebel Wilson Reveals She Was Sexually Harassed By A Well-Known Male Co-Star
Wow — You can read it all in her tweet thread about the incident (below): I've been away in a 'bubble' of sorts creating new comedy overseas but it's so hard to hear all these stories relating to sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood. As you guys know, I'm a pretty strong and confident person but even I have a story to tell. — Rebel Wilson (@RebelWilson) November 11, 2017 A male star, in a position of power asked

Tearful Moment Widow Meets The Man Who Was Given Her Dead Husband’s Face
Mental health problems are rife in today’s society, and a number of issues prevent people from seeking out the help they need. This could be a fear of opening up about their struggles due to social stigma, or financial limitations which prevent them from accessing help. In 2006, Andy Sandness from Wyoming shot himself in the face in a failed suicide attempt. He was left to suffer in a way he could have never imagined after losing his nose and jaw, and

Miley Cyrus Opens Up About How Her Role In Hannah Montana Impacted Her Mental Health – Viral Thread
Remember the summer of 2013, when Miley Cyrus drastically changed her image from a relatively wholesome teenager to a 20-year-old woman who embraced her sexuality in a way that many regarded as vulgar? Well, these days it seems that the young, polarizing singer has had enough of revamping her image because the music videos for her latest album Younger Now are very tame in comparison. However, what certainly hasn’t changed is her candidness and the fact that she doesn’t

Florida school is selling bulletproof inserts for students’ backpacks
In the days to month following the fifth and first deadliest shootings in modern U.S. History, one Florida private school is preparing for gun violence by taking the matter into its own hands—or, its students’ backpacks. The Florida Christian School in Miami is selling bulletproof ballistic panels for its students’ backpacks. George Gulla, the school’s dean of students and head of security, told CNN that for $120, these insertable, lightweight backpack panels can add another level of protection to

Midwestern shoppers will be able to munch on genetically modified, non-browning apples.
One of my favorite snacks is slices of Granny Smith apple and some sharp cheddar cheese. But as much as I like 'em, as soon as the apple slices turn brown, I just ... eh ... I know they're still good, but to be honest, I kind of lose interest. This month, however, bags of Arctic apple slices are going to be hitting a couple hundred stores in the Midwestern United States. And, thanks to genetic engineering, these apples

Selena Gomez Opens Up In First Interview About Secret “Life Or Death” Kidney Transplant
The need for organ donors is a pressing issue in today’s society. Having lost a childhood friend to disease when she was just 20 years old, I’ve seen first-hand how a lack of donors can cut short lives. That’s why I’ve signed up to the organ donor register. Whilst it’s easy to assume that celebrities’ lives are always Instagram-perfect, that’s not the case. Celebrities have health problems just like you and I, and Selena Gomez recently shocked her fans

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) issued an impassioned plea to his fellow members of Congress on Saturday to pass further gun control protections following a mass shooting at a Texas church that left 26 people dead. A gunman, identified as 26-year-old Devin Patrick Kelley, massacred 26 people at First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday. The mass shooting came just 35 days after 64-year-old Stephen Paddock killed 59 people and injured more than 500 others in Las Vegas, making

50 Shades Of Gaslighting: Disturbing Signs An Abuser Is Twisting Your Reality
“The erasure of the abuse was worse than the abuse…One of the most insidious things about gaslighting is the denial of reality. Being denied what you have seen. Being denied what you have experienced and know to be true. It can make you feel like you are crazy. But you are not crazy.” – Ariel Leve, How to Survive Gaslighting: When Manipulation Erases Your Reality Joshua Fuller How do you convince someone that something they to be true isn’t?

Perhaps just two days later — what happened in Sutherland Springs will be a fading memory (where is Sutherland Springs, again?). We'll have mostly forgotten those who lost their lives and why they aren't here anymore. We won't remember that the youngest victim was 18 months old. Or that the oldest was 71. Or that an

"To every person who's ever been singled out, who's ever been stigmatized, who's ever been the misfit, who's ever been the kid in the corner, who's ever needed someone to stand up for them when they didn't have a voice of their own ... this one's for you," said Virginia delegate-elect Danica Roem during a fiery victory speech on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
