Kate Middleton's Bizarre Behavior at Event Gets Everyone Talking

Image
I love that this is "news." Did you know? Kate Middleton smiled and twirled her hair at a Remembrance Day ceremony Sunday. (Remembrance Day is basically England's Veterans Day, don't you know.) The royal family laid a wreath, there was a moment of silence, and the whole world gasped as Kate reached up with a gloved hand, grasped a lock of her shiny, be-curled hair, and worked its perfect spiral through her fingers. Primping, at such a solemn occasion! Well I never! But also, note to self: Buy curling iron tomorrow. Such is the power of Duchess Catherine.

But what was Kate thinking? I don't mean that as in "girl, what the hell are you thinking, twirling your hair like that?" I mean literally, what was Kate thinking about at the time? Here are our best guesses.



It's so weird not to have Prince George in my arms right now. I hardly know what to do with my hands!

Did you know that an American teenager is addicted to eating...

Image
Deodorant has been a necessary part of our everyday lives for decades. A step on from good old eau de toilette or perfume, deodorant is something most people don’t want to live without. However, it’s a different addiction in Nicole’s case.



Nicole Jones, a 19 year old teenager from New York, is addicted to eating deodorant. Nicole began her odd feeding when she was a child of 4, and it quickly became an addiction. Nicole’s addiction has reached the point where she eats up to 15 deodorant sticks a month just to remain calm. According to the girl, when she’s out, she becomes a whole other person – an anxious and aggravated one. Thanks to her odd addiction, Nicole is often left with a dry mouth and stomachaches. However, even the doctor’s advice can’t make Nicole stop.

Apart from eating deodorant sticks, Nicole sometimes uses deodorant spray. She likes the soft and unique taste she experiences and the way the chemicals melt in her mouth.

Are video games bad for your health? Virtual worlds cause us to ignore symptoms of illness and make us care less for others

Games are becoming so advanced, players are losing touch with realityThe lines between human and machine are becoming 'increasingly blurred'This leads to players ignoring or missing health issues in their own bodies

Spending too long in a virtual world could bad for your real life health, warns a new study. Researchers found computer games and simulations may be duping players into ignoring their own vital health signs. A series of experiments by researchers from Melbourne University showed playing immersive games can actually dampen someone’s response to pain and lead to them potentially caring less about others.

Experts claim it is because virtual characters in role-playing video games and online services have become so advanced they are leading people to be detached from their bodies and have less empathy. The artificial nature of virtual avatars, with their 'mechanistic inertness, rigidity and a lack of emotion and warmth', means extended periods of exposure to the…

Pakistani victims of US drone attack to appear before Congress, despite setbacks

Image
Pakistani school teacher and his children will be the first drone victims to testify before Congress on Tuesday, October 29. Their lawyer, however, has been prevented from entering the US.

Last October, Rafiq ur Rehman was out visiting his sister when a drone missile struck near his home, killing his mother, Momina Bibi, 67, and injuring his three children.

Rehman, a primary school teacher in North Waziristan, will speak to Congress about his experience on Tuesday, as will two of his children: Nabeela, age 9, and Zubair, age 13.

“I have no idea why my grandmother was killed. When the drone hit, I was outside with my grandmother. Everything became dark, I was scared, so I started to run. Then I noticed my hand was bleeding, so I tried to clean my hand, but blood kept coming out. But I was very scared, so I just kept running,” the killed woman’s granddaughter Nabeela told RT’s Gayane Chichakyan.

“My mother was killed, my children were injured. I’m so glad that people are going to hear …

Did You Know That When A Google Employee Dies…

Image
Google is famous for having a great company policy towards its employees. They are provided with different kind of benefits such as fitness subscriptions, free food, car washes, laundry service and many more. Now they are offering something quite unique to their US employees : when a person passes away, their  spouse would receive 10 years of half pay. And this is not all Google is offering : the children of a deceased employee will be paid $1000 per month until they are 19 years old with the option of extending the time period if the child is in full time school.



Google stated the new policy is meant to ensure a family’s well being in case of unpredictable events such as sudden death, although the company would not directly benefit from it. Google’s management also pointed out that the main purpose of the policy is not to attract more potential candidates but it is yet considered as a positive side effect.
