    Turning to Botox and other cosmetic treatments is a personal decision for women prompted by a variety of reasons. However, those who do it to help them find romance with a new partner can be judged more harshly by other women. A study suggests that motivations, such as boosting their career or self-esteem, are regarded more sympathetically. Researchers studied the reactions of 306 participants to different scenarios in which middle-aged women had anti-ageing treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers. For example, the group of men and women was told: ‘Beth is a middle-aged woman who wants to maintain a more youthful appearance to look for a romantic partner. ‘She regularly uses professional treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers as part of her anti-ageing treatment.’ A Swansea University study found that women who got Botox for romantic reasons were judged more harshly than those who got it done to boost their career or self-esteem.

    Share this: Corporate America – once known for carefully avoiding public stances on hot button issues – has, in recent years, become increasingly outspoken on a host of thorny topics, from gay rights to the war in Ukraine. That makes its relative silence in the face of the end of federal abortion rights all the more deafening. Over two-thirds of companies in the Fortune 500 are publicly committed to supporting LGBTQ rights, and many were early backers of marriage equality before the public embraced it. In the weeks after Vladimir Putin sent his armies into Ukraine, hundreds of companies suspended or ceased operations in Russia in an unprecedented reaction to geopolitical aggression. And in the aftermath of the passage of a 2021 Georgia law seen as curtailing voting rights, dozens of companies spoke forcefully against the legislation. But so far, only three dozen or so companies have taken a public stance on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, mostly to declare their support for workers seeking an abortion. While a few openly criticized the Supreme Court’s June...

    DENVER (CBS4) – With June around the corner now is the time to start thinking about summer air quality along the Front Range. One of the biggest concerns is ozone which is a big problem along Colorado’s Interstate 25 urban corridor during the hottest days of the year. (credit: CBS) Ozone is a gas found in two layers of Earth’s atmosphere. Naturally occurring ozone is the good kind of ozone gas found high above the ground in the stratosphere. It helps to protect us from the harmful rays of the sun. The bad kind of ozone gas is found close to the ground and forms as pollution from human activities essentially “cooks” in the hot sun, undergoing a chemical reaction that forms ozone gas. Breathing in high concentrations of ozone gas can trigger asthma attacks, aggravate pre-existing respiratory conditions and make breathing difficult. It can impact everyone from the young and elderly to those who work and exercise outside. File photo of traffic in Colorado’s high country.

    Some of London's top chefs have come to the defence of garlic after dozens of New York restaurants banned the vegetable because it leaves customers 'smelly and gassy'. Asimakis Chaniotis, the Executive Chef of the Michelin-starred Pied à Terre in Fitzrovia, branded garlic 'essential' and 'the basis' of many dishes while Jack Croft, Co-Owner and Chef Patron of Fallow - another restaurant in the Michelin Guide described garlic as a 'staple' of his kitchen. The comments come as Thomas Makkos, the owner of Italian restaurant Nello on New York's Upper East Side removed garlic from his menu. 'People always complained that it was smelly and gassy. Finally, I made the decision to get rid of it all together, and my customers thanked me,' he told the New York Post. Celebrity hotspot Cipriani in New York has banned garlic - with the owner saying its 'too overpowering' Makkos told the newspaper he banned it in 2020 while customers were wearing facemasks and complaining about 'breathing in their own bad breath'. Other NYC Italian restaurants including Fasano and celebrity hotspot Cipriani have also removed the...
    This week, Gov. Tim Walz and Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm visited St. Paul Corner Drug to get their second COVID-19 booster shots. On March 29, the Food and Drug Administration authorized second boosters to be given at least four months after the first booster, for people age 50 and up and some younger, immunocompromised people. Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control says people in these groups may get a second booster. But it’s less on when they should do it. Because heightened immunity from a booster takes about two weeks to fully kick in, and wanes after several months, some eligible Minnesotans are getting second boosters now to have maximum protection as cases again rise in the state. Others wonder if it’s best to wait on the booster in order to have more protection for late-summer travel or event plans. Article continues after advertisement Experts say that depends on your health and risk factors, but for some eligible for a second booster, taking plans into consideration isn’t necessarily a bad idea.

    Eight hours is no longer the ideal duration of sleep each night in middle age, according to science. Cambridge University researchers are now recommending people get seven hours — which they say is the sweet spot for general health and warding off dementia. The downgrade comes after studying the sleep pattern of half a million Britons aged 38 to 73. People who got more than eight or less than six hours per night scored worse in tests for thinking speed, attention span, memory and problem-solving. Until now, getting eight hours of undisrupted sleep was thought to be the Goldilocks zone for sleep, providing the best overall health benefits. But disruption to sleep — which happens to both those who sleep too little and for too long — is associated with a buildup of plaque in the brain — a tell-tale sign of dementia. The Cambridge University study shows the link between hours of sleep per night and different measures of brain function (blue lines), including memory and reaction time, as well as mental health, including depression and anxiety.

    GOOGLE has rolled out an emergency patch for Chrome after it was alerted to a high-level bug already exploited by hackers. The tech giant has rushed to fix a total of 11 serious security issues, seven of which have been deemed a high risk. 2Chrome users urged to update nowCredit: Alamy Thankfully, the vast majority aren't believed to have been actively abused by cyber crooks yet. But the worst of the lot already "exists in the wild", meaning it's important all three billion Chrome users update their browsers as soon as possible. Google is keeping quiet about the full details of the vulnerabilities until enough people have update. This is to prevent inadvertently giving hackers all the information they need to pull off attacks. Most of the bugs are found by external experts who don't work directly for Google, who are paid bug bounties for uncovering issues before cyber criminals find them. "We would also like to thank all security researchers that worked with us during the development cycle to prevent security bugs from ever reaching the stable channel," the...
    In this article WMTAn employee restocks frozen food products at a Walmart Inc. store in Burbank, California.Patrick T. Fallon | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesWhen Walmart reports quarterly earnings Thursday, investors will scour sales numbers and executives' comments for clues about whether rising prices are making shoppers skittish. The retail giant is closely watched as a bellwether of inflation. "Any sort of wavering in behavior, they're going to detect it," said Steph Wissink, a retail analyst for Jefferies. "The voice of Walmart carries more weight in the context of 'How healthy is the consumer?'" Inflation has risen rapidly, raising questions about what that means for Americans' spending habits after a pandemic- and stimulus-fueled spending spree. The consumer price index rose by 7% in December compared with a year earlier, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and marked the fastest increase in nearly 40 years. Food prices have increased 6.3% on a 12-month basis and are closely watched because groceries are households' most frequent purchases. Major consumer goods companies, including PepsiCo, Hershey, Coca-Cola and Proctor & Gamble, have passed on price increases...
    IT'S A well-known fact that everyone loves pizza. But getting the perfect slice isn't just about the recipe - when you decide to cut matters as well. 3When you cut your pizza can make all the difference in getting the perfect sliceCredit: Getty 3Pro chef Ann Kim revealed the best time to cut your pizza depending on the tool you have on handCredit: Getty You may not think too much about it, but when you cut your pie could make or break your slice. Depending on the timing, the pizza toppings could stick to the knife and cause disaster to your meal. So, Minneapolis chef Ann Kim, who's known for her gourmet wood-fired pizzas, recommends cutting your pizza when it's fresh out of the oven. “Once you let it settle, it starts to toughen up and it’s actually more challenging," she told Food and Wine. "I would highly recommend waiting a few minutes before you actually pick up the slice and eat it, for fear of burning the roof of your mouth. Because we’ve...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Since the New Year Holiday, nearly 21 million face masks have been delivered to 51 County Boards of Education statewide. As of Tuesday, Sacramento County alone received 952,320 face masks for schools from Cal OES and more kid-size masks are expected to arrive in some districts as soon as next week. In Sacramento City Unified School District received a shipment of N95 masks from the State Of California through the Sacramento County Office of Education last Friday. It was enough to issue 20 masks to each staff member, contracted providers, volunteers, substitute staff, and also a backup supply for on-site needs.

    A woman has detailed how her bridezilla friend's lengthy list of demands and insults has led to her and other bridesmaids dropping out of the wedding.  The 20-year-old opened up about their falling out on Reddit's 'Am I the A**hole' forum, saying the 23-year-old bride-to-be — whom she referred to as 'Katie'— has forbidden her bridesmaids from getting engaged or pregnant because it's 'her' year.  Katie also expects her bridesmaids to pay a total of $2,000 each for her wedding events, including buying themselves new clothes.  The Reddit user, whose handle is u/Extreme_Demand4217, said she was asked to be a 'replacement' bridesmaid when she was pregnant and was excited until she learned more about the requirements.    Reddit user u/Extreme_Demand4217 revealed her friend 'Katie' has had five people drop out of her wedding so far because of her unreasonable expectations (stock image)  She shared a list of the bride's demands on the 'Am I the A**hole' forum, saying she was considering dropping out of the bridal party herself  'Since I have joined, five people have dropped out due to her attitude and high...
    (CNN)For Americans traveling after Christmas and New Year's, getting their Covid-19 vaccinations or booster doses as soon as possible is critical to safely avoid serious illness, one health expert told CNN Saturday. Amid a surge of cases nationwide fueled by the Omicron coronavirus variant before the holiday season, parts of the country are reporting increased hospitalizations and deaths. And people need to be prepared for a heightened risk of infection during travel by taking preventative measures, according to Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of the school of tropical medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. "If you've only gotten two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, even though that officially counts as fully vaccinated, we know that its impact on breakthrough symptomatic illness is close to zero," Hotez told CNN's Amara Walker Saturday. The initial two-dose regiment will still protect "better for serious illness," he said, "but you still need to get boosted, I think, if you want to travel safely."Booster shots may take two weeks to provide peak immunity, doctors have said, meaning the sooner one gets vaccinated, the better....

    On Wednesday, a spokesperson for Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) confirmed that the congressman forwarded a text message to Trump White House chief-of-staff Mark Meadows on January 5th. That text outlined a fringe legal theory authored by former justice department official Joseph Schmitz, who outlined how he believed the 2020 presidential election results could be nullified. Congress certified the results the next day, after supporters of Donald Trump stormed the Capitol. The text was read during a hearing of the House select committee investigating the Capitol riot. Anderson Cooper addressed the text and asked CNN’s Jim Acosta if the fact that Jordan had forwarded it rather than authored it made it “any less egregious.” No,” said Acosta. “There’s no putting lipstick on this pig, Anderson. Keep in mind, Jordan was one of Kevin McCarthy’s [failed] picks for the January 6th committee. So can you imagine the embarrassment that would’ve been on Jim Jordan’s face when they started reading texts, and then looked over at Jim Jordan and said, ‘Oh, by the way, I think that was your text. I mean, we...
    As we enter into the final few weeks of 2021 and a new year, I can't help but feel an underlying sense of anxiety and hesitation about what 2022 could possibly bring us. I am not trying to sound like The Grinch but I, like most of you, remember the excitement and jubilation of New Year's 2020 as we were entering a new decade, 'the roaring twenties' if you will. My husband and I were heavily tipsy on a rooftop in Barcelona, Spain watching fireworks and I remember feeling blissfully happy and full of anticipation and optimism for the new decade. We all know what happened next, and for that matter, what has happened in the two years that followed. I don't need to tell any of you how much has changed for all of us. My daughter is 14-months-old and I am dreading her turning two-year-old because I have no idea how I could keep a mask on a child for an extended period of time. She can barely keep a headband on her head. I also don't want...

    President Joe Biden will not be booting out any unvaccinated federal workers until after the holiday season, a new Monday report reveals. The move hasn't been publicly announced yet but was written in a memo to government agencies by the White House's Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and obtained by ABC. The directive allows agencies to pause on firing or suspending workers after Biden ordered all federal government employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 22. According to OMB, 92 percent of federal workers already have at least one dose.   Of the 3.5 million federal employees, 96.5 percent have complied with the mandate, meaning they are vaccinated or had their exemption approved. About 4.5 percent - more than 157,000 people - sought exemptions or were already exempt and about 3.5 percent haven't shown a record of vaccination nor sought an exemption.   The OMB news broke just before Biden addressed the nation on Monday over the highly contagious new Omicron coronavirus variant The percentage of federal workers vaccinated is far higher than the national average of roughly 70 percent RELATED...

    Drinking a wine or beer every day could be the key to preventing heart disease in the elderly, a study has revealed. Monash University researchers observed the effects of alcohol consumption in 18,000 people aged 70 and above in the US and Australia.

    OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER needs to be tougher on Manchester United’s star players to get the best out of them, according to Peter Crouch.
