British Fashion Council Spearheads Data Visualization Project Before LFW

LONDON — The British Fashion Council will be putting the spotlight on data — and the social reach of London Fashion Week — via a joint partnership with tech companies including Google and Holition during a five-day showcase that starts on Friday.
The new project, dubbed Blossoming Fashion Conversation, will showcase the number of posts and the reach of a series of LFW-related topics on social media and other digital outlets. Topics will include sustainability, model health, luxury and streetwear climates, designer and production heritage, emerging talent, diversity in the industry and overall innovation.
The data will be collected from keywords and hashtags on social platforms, as well as the British Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar web sites. It will be showcased in the form of a tree with different roots and branches. Each root will represent the reach of LFW-related articles, while the branches will indicate the total number of social media mentions each topic gains during the event. The graphics will be showcased on screens at 180 Strand, the main BFC runway venue.
The aim of the project is to explore new immersive ways of showing fashion. The BFC is also looking to educate the LFW audience, which includes industry members and the public,

Priyanka Chopra Brought Nick Jonas as Her Date to the Met Gala One Year Before Engagement

Fans may be shocked to learn that Nick Jonas proposed to Priyanka Chopra after just two months of dating, but the couple’s friendship dates back longer than many realize.

A little more than a year before Chopra, 36, and Jonas, 25, started dating, the Quantico actress brought the pop star as her date to the 2017 Met Gala.

In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chopra opened up about why she accompanied Jonas on the Met red carpet.

“Are you dating Nick Jonas? Isn’t he like, 11 years old?” Kimmel asked the actress.

“We were both wearing Ralph Lauren! And we decided to go together because it was fun,” Chopra replied, shutting down the idea that the pair was a couple.

“Really? Interesting,” Kimmel said skeptically.

“I didn’t ask his age. 11? I did not know that. Good to know,” she quipped back.

Chopra added, “Yeah we were on the same table. We know each other so we were like, ‘Hey you know what, let’s go together.’ And I was like, ‘Okay. Let’s go together!’ It just ended up working out.”

RELATED PHOTOS: UPDATED! The Most Jaw-Dropping Celebrity Engagement Rings

A source confirmed to PEOPLE Chopra and Jonas got engaged a week ago while celebrating her 36th birthday in London after two months together.

Jonas closed down a Tiffany & Co. store in New York City to buy an engagement ring, according to the insider.

“They are so happy,” the source says. A Jonas source tells PEOPLE the singer is “very, very happy.”

“His friends and family have never seen him like this, and they’re all really excited for him. He’s definitely very serious about her,” the source says.

An insider previously told PEOPLE Jonas and Chopra stayed in touch after hitting it off last year but things really heated up between the pair when they introduced each other to their families.

The couple began dating in May 2018 (one year after their Met Gala meet cute) and by June, Jonas had already introduced Chopra to his family at his cousin Rachel Tamburelli’s wedding in New Jersey. At the ceremony were Nick’s brothers Frankie and Kevin Jonas, who was accompanied by his wife Danielle, as well as their mother Denise and father Kevin Sr.

“It’s a huge deal that Nick brought Priyanka to his cousin’s wedding,” a Jonas pal previously told PEOPLE of the duo. “He’s dated a lot over the last couple years but it’s never been anything serious, so this is a big step. Nick and Priyanka really like each other, and his family enjoyed getting to know her as well. She fit right in!”

Brad Pitt ‘Was Dreaming About Being a Dad’ Years Before He Met Angelina Jolie: Source

Brad Pitt is feeling better now that he gets to spend more time with his kids.

The actor, 54, is in London now — where ex Angelina Jolie is currently filming Maleficent 2  — to see his children for a second time in recent weeks after a judge presiding over the former couple’s divorce proceedings established a detailed schedule for him to spend time with Pax, 14, Zahara, 13, Shiloh, 12, and 9-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox. The kids are currently living in London with Jolie as she films the Disney movie.

And being with the kids is already brightening his mood.

“Having kids was always very special to him. He wanted kids for years before he met Angie,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was dreaming about being a dad. And he has always been a great dad. Very involved and present. He talks about the kids nonstop now. He brought gifts back to England.”

The court papers obtained by PEOPLE stated, “the children not having a relationship with their father is harmful to them,” and that Jolie, 43, could lose full custody of the kids if she doesn’t allow them to grow their relationships with Pitt.

Maddox, 16, their oldest son, isn’t included in the timetable. That’s because, according to the court, Maddox is old enough to decide for himself how much time he wants to spend with his father.

A spokesperson for Jolie called the court paper leak “misleading” and “not in the best interests of the children.”

The new ruling has made a significant impact in Pitt’s life as he was struggling with not knowing when he would have time with the kids.

“Brad has been in the best mood,” the source says. “Although he was away from the kids for a week, it seems just the fact that he now knows when he will see them, makes him very happy. He couldn’t wait to get back to England. Not following a proper custody schedule was very difficult for him. And very sad as well.”

Meghan Markle Will Walk Down the Aisle Solo Before Meeting Prince Charles Halfway to the Altar

When Meghan Markle makes her historic walk down the aisle of St. George’s Chapel on Saturday, she’ll be starting it off solo, PEOPLE confirms.

After arriving by car with her mom, Doria Ragland, the bride-to-be will be greeted by her little bridal party members (including Prince George and Princess Charlotte!), who will lead the way down the aisle as Meghan takes her first steps to the altar by herself.

She will then be met by her future father-in-law, Prince Charles, who will be waiting for her at the halfway mark to escort her the rest of the way to the altar. The length of the aisle is about 110 steps, and more than half of those will be taken solo by Meghan.

It’s the event of the year! Be sure to keep up with all of PEOPLE’s royal wedding coverage and don’t forget to check out everything you need to know about Meghan Markle’s perfect style.

Charles is stepping into the role in place of Meghan’s dad, Thomas Markle, who is unable to come to the royal wedding.

“It was Meghan’s wish and she is grateful for the Prince of Wales to be doing it,” a royal source tells PEOPLE.

Don’t miss out! Tune in to Meghan and Harry – a Fairy-Tale Wedding on Saturday, May 19, starting at 6 a.m. ET/ 3 a.m. PT on PeopleTV — now available on PeopleTV.com and on your favorite streaming device.

The royal bride-to-be asked Charles to take over the duty in the last 24 hours, since it was revealed that her father was not able to attend.

It was always Meghan’s “wish” to conduct the first portion of the walk by herself and then be met by her dad for the final steps to the altar, the royal source says. Now, Charles will greet her at the Quire (the last section of the church, where the immediate members of the royal family and close relatives will likely be seated) and walk her to the end of the aisle where Prince Harry will be standing.

John Cena and Nikki Bella Settle into Their New Home Before Ending Engagement

John Cena is showing off his goofy side.

In a new clip from the season 3 premiere of Total Bellas, Cena gets overly excited when a new rug gets delivered to the house he shares with then-finance Nikki Bella.

When Bella doesn’t alert Cena that the rug has arrived, he jokingly warns Bella not to mess with the “rug man.”

“I’ve been waiting all day like a dog with a bone,” he says. “I’m going to get all fist-deep in some rug.”

The pro-wrestler then goes into the other room to unpack the rug, which only makes him more excited.

“Nicole! How could you not have told me about this? This is a major thing that has happened today,” he yells across the house.

“Are you still doing the rug?” Bella, who is hanging out with her brother and mom in the living room responds.

“Never, ever question the rug man,” Cena replies.

In the new season, Bella, 34, and Cena, 40, move to San Diego together. But despite their new home, the couple spent long periods of time apart due to their busy schedules. Bella also opened up about the loneliness she felt in her relationship.

“What’s hard at times that people don’t realize about my relationship is I’m alone a lot,” Bella said during an interview segment on the show. “I’m alone in these big, beautiful homes.”

“Honestly, John and I have shared our bed together maybe 30 days total, out of six months,” she continued.

Bella called off her engagement to Cena three weeks before they were meant to walk down the aisle. Sources previously told PEOPLE that her decision to break up was due to their differing stances on marriage and having kids.

Though the pair has ended their romance, both Cena and Bella have acknowledged that they would like to one day get back together.

“John is such an amazing man. He really is the love of my life,” Bella told Entertainment Tonight at NBCUniversal’s Upfront Presentation in New York City on Monday.

“I truly hope one day that we can work it out and get back together,” she admitted. “I think there is hope.”

Total Divas returns this fall, and season 3 of Total Bellas premieres May 20 at 9 p.m. ET, both on E!

Meet the Superfans Who Camp Outside Kate Middleton’s Hospital Before Every Royal Baby Birth

Terry Hutt knows when he would like Kate Middleton to welcome her third child –April 30, which will be his 84th birthday.

For the third royal baby birth in a row, the ultimate royal superfan is in position opposite the now-famous doors of the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London — just as he did for the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Hutt and a group of his fellow dedicated fellow enthusiasts have been camped along a wall of the hospital since late Monday, April 9, when signs were erected to ban street parking.   

Left to right: Terry Hutt, Maria Scott and John Loughrey outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London on April 13, 2018.

During the day, Hutt says he wears his signature Union Jack suit because “people like seeing it,” but it is “well wrapped up at night.”

Alongside him are John Loughrey, 63, from London, and Maria Scott, 46, and her daughter Amy Thompson, 17, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Scott hopes for a St. George’s Day birthday (April 23) or one coinciding with Queen Elizabeth’s birthdate on April 21. 

Loughrey says he prefers the name Philip Michael (for Prince Philip and Kate’s father Michael Middleton) or Georgina, as a nod to a Spencer ancestor on Harry’s maternal side — or Elizabeth (for the Queen). There’s one thing the trio are agreed upon, though: “The most important thing is a healthy baby and a healthy mother.”

Terry Hutt and Margaret Tyler on Terry’s 80th birthday in 2015 awaiting the birth of Princess Charlotte.

The gang and their friends will be there “rain or shine” to the end, they vow. “Once you’re in it, there’s no going back,” says Scott. “I would kick myself if I go back home and she has it the next day.”

Terry Hutt and Margaret Tyler awaiting the birth of Prince George in 2013.

Last time, when they were waiting for aorund two weeks for Charlotte to be born (she arrived on May 2, 2015), Prince William and Kate’s office sent some coffee and pastries to the campers one morning.

“I’m hoping for birthday cake this year,” jokes Hutt.

Cirque du Soleil Aerialist Who Died During Show Shared Heartfelt Message Before Fatal Performance

Just before Cirque du Soleil aerialist Yann Arnaud took to the stage in what would be his final performance this weekend, the married father shared a heartfelt Instagram post about the difficult stunt that would lead to his death.

“After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight,” he wrote alongside a black and white shot of himself practicing the stunt. “It’s time to go for it.”

During the Saturday performance in Tampa, Florida, Arnaud lost his grip on an aerial ring and plunged some 20 feet to the stage just before 10 p.m., according to the Tampa Bay Times. He was rushed to a local hospital where he died early Sunday. In a statement, Cirque du Soleil officials called the incident a “tragic accident,” and noted that Arnaud had been with the organization for more than 15 years.

Arnaud performed the straps act along with fellow aerialist Pawel Walczewski. Walczewski, too, posted about the difficult number on Instagram, writing, “After a long road ready to perform tonight a straps act with @yannarnophoto.”

Arnaud leaves behind a wife and two young daughters. Along with photos of his performances, Arnaud’s social media accounts are filled with shots of his wife Inna Gorelova, their 2-year-old Lilia and Arnaud’s older daughter. In one shot, Arnaud is shown tossing Lilia into the air; in the post he called her is “little acrobat.”

A September Instagram video shared by Gorelova showed Lilia playing with a plush duck. Arnaud couldn’t help but gush about his daughter in the comment section, writing, “My little princess growing so fast😘💖.”

In the wake of his death, Arnaud’s friends and fellow performers have mourned his passing in a series of social media messages. In a Facebook post on Sunday, Erica Madrid recalled working with Arnaud, calling him a “strong role model for many.”

“My heart aches for you, those who were around you and close to you, and most of all for your loving, beautiful family, so I feel the need to say something,” Madrid wrote.

“You were such a respectable, hard-working, talented individual. I am honored to have worked with you from when we were first beginning training to figuring out the name of the show and eventually to its premiere.”

Performer Simon Ata shared a pair of Facebook photos that featured Arnaud, describing him as “An amazing friend, performer, photographer and human being.”

On Monday, another friend wrote in another post that Gorelova and Lilia were Arnaud’s “world.”

“The world has lost an amazing artist, father, and husband,” the user, Joanna Borres, wrote. “In such shock over this devastating news. I’m grateful for having the opportunity to work you.”

Meghan Markle’s Favorite Ring Before She Got That Ring Is Being Rereleased — and PEOPLE Readers Can Get It First

Meghan Markle‘s go-to bling — that is, before Prince Harry gave her that gorgeous diamond engagement ring featuring a stone from Botswana and two others from Princess Diana’s personal collection — is back.

Back before she was dating Harry, when she was still an actress slash activist with an active Instagram account, Meghan was frequently spotted wearing BaubleBar’s Peacemaker Ring, a gorgeous gold style featuring a leaf-like detail that wraps around two fingers, with a longer vine extending down the center. The branches of the vine also feature small crystals and is “inspired by nature,” according to the company’s website.

The ring has been sold out for a while — until now. For those of you who have been wanting to get your hands on Meghan’s statement-making piece, you’re in luck: On March 1, BaubleBar is releasing the style again in honor of their soon-to-be royal fan — and PEOPLE readers have exclusive access to purchase the ring right now. Even better news? With a price tag of $ 42, this ring will give you the style of a royal on a commoner’s budget.

But if you want to rock this Meghan favorite piece yourself, you’d better hurry: It sold out once, and now that it’s got the royal seal of approval, it’ll undoubtedly sell out again.

514-Lb. Woman Worries She Will Die Before Her 35th Birthday: ‘What Kind of Future Do I Have?’

At 514 lbs., Chrissy Dunham worries every day that she’s about to die.

The 30-year-old already struggles to walk, and doesn’t feel like she has much of a life.

“My weight has gotten so bad that everything hurts. My joints, my back, my shoulders, my feet and my legs,” Dunham says in this clip from Friday’s episode of The Doctors. “I’m not going to be able to maneuver for much longer.”

She says that her weight has “taken everything away” from her life.

“You want to be active and go out with your friends and do these things,” Dunham says, adding that instead, “you see your friends and family compromising to accommodate you, and you feel that burden.”

And with a body mass index of 80 — double what is considered morbidly obese — Dunham isn’t sure if she’ll make it to her 35th birthday.

“There’s so many nights that I lay there going, is this the night that I’m going to die?” she says. “There’s going to be a day when I’m just not there.”

Her mortality is why Dunham says she’s ready to make a change.

“I think the moment was, ‘Okay, I want to have a future,’ ” she says. “When your fear of getting better is just overwhelming, and where you can’t think that far in advance, because what kind of future do I have if I just keep going the way I’m going?”

With the help of Dr. Travis Stork and The Doctors, Dunham is ready for a weight loss intervention.

“I want to be a different person,” she says.

The tragedy remains under investigation, as many unanswered questions remain. Here are five things you need to know about the case.

1. The Family Checked Into the Resort Hours Before the Killings

The suspected killer, Flor De Maria Pineda Canas, along with her 39-year-old husband, Mauricio Canas, and their two boys, 10-year-old Mauricio Jr. and 5-year-old David, had checked into the San Luis Hotel mere hours before other guests called 911 after hearing a quick succession of gunshots, according to a statement from the Galveston Police Department.

Responding officers arrived and were directed to the eighth floor. They found the room’s door dead-bolted, and could could hear “faint moaning coming from inside the suspected room and began to make entry,” the statement explains.

After breaching the room, police found the husband and two boys “lying in bed, all with gunshot wounds.” Investigators believe they were killed as they slept, and that moments later, Flor took her own life. Police found a handgun next to her lifeless body.

2. The Killer Was Religious, May Have Suffered From Depression

Those who knew her claim that Flor Canas was earnestly religious and had been a member of Iglesia Cristo Viene in their hometown of Baytown, Texas, for more than seven years. The family, ABC 13 reports, attended mass together the Sunday morning before their deaths.

Most of the members are in shock because this is a person that was always looking for ways to help the community,” Leonila Olivares, an ordained minister, told ABC 13. “She had a servant heart.”

Talk amongst the congregation, Olivares explained, is that Flor was not suffering from emotional distress. “They’re thinking that it was because of her depression,” she said.

3. One Boy in Kindergarten, the Other in 5th Grade

According to reports, the two boys were both students at the Victoria Walker Elementary School in Baytown, a suburb of Houston. Mauricio Jr. was in the fifth grade, and David was in kindergarten.

A spokeswoman for the school, Beth Dombrowa, issued a statement to the Houston Chronicle on Monday.

“The tragic circumstances surrounding these students’ deaths are almost too much to bear,” it reads. “A student death can have a ripple effect on a school community and, because of this and out of concern for the students’ classmates and the campus faculty, we will have additional counseling services at the school. We are grieving for the loss of young life and its infinite possibilities and we pray for the family, friends and students most affected by this tragedy.”

4. Motive For The Killings Still Unclear

Detectives still do not know what drove Canas to kill her family at around 4:30 a.m., but they’re positive she was the killer.

“Forensic data collected at the scene indicates that the female is believed to be the shooter at this time, and is believed to have killed her two children and her husband before apparently taking her own life with a 9mm handgun found adjacent to her body,” the statement from Galveston Police explains.

Canas and one of her children “were unresponsive but still appeared to be alive” when officers arrived. All four were transported to a nearby hospital where they were pronounced dead.

5. Murder-Suicide Was Second Fatal Shooting Incident at Resort in Recent Months

Back in April, a security guard working at the San Luis Hotel was shot to death.

Phillip Molis, 23, was in the resort’s rear parking lot on April 9 when he noticed three suspicious men. According to ABC 13, Molis approached the men, who opened fire, hitting him several times.

Molis underwent complicated surgeries, but died a week later from his wounds, the station reports. Brandon Ledford, 19, has been charged with his murder and was detained in October.

Ledford has not entered a plea to the charge against him, and remains in police custody without bail. Information about whether he has retained an attorney was not immediately available.

Omarosa Manigault Gave Her 39-Person Bridal Party a Tour of the White House Before Her Wedding: Report

Omarosa Manigault, an assistant to president Donald Trump and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison, brought her 39-person bridal party to the White House for an extended wedding photo shoot, Politico reported Tuesday.

The 43-year-old former Apprentice star married husband John Allen Newman on April 8 at the Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C.

Four unnamed White House officials told Politico that prior to her nuptials, Manigualt staged an “extended wedding photo shoot” at the White House in her bridal attire — something that caught “fellow senior aids and some security officials” by surprise as “some lawyers and other senior aides were not briefed in advance.”

Her visitors were said to have “loudly wandered around” the Rose Garden and West Wing, sources told Politico.

Manigault was banned from posting the pictures online, Politico reports, with White House officials citing security and ethical concerns. It’s unclear whether she received formal permission for the photo shoot ahead of time.

Reps for Manigault did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Sources told Politico that Manigault has been seen as “a particular problem” in the Office of Public Liaison, citing a heated appearance at the National Association of Black Journalists conference in New Orleans in August. Politico reported that Manigault also stoked a mini-controversy in June by signing invitations for Congressional Black Caucus members to meet Trump as the “Honorable Omarosa Manigault,” which aides told the site became “a punch line in the White House.”

Politico also reported that Trump “continues to like Manigault.”

As fans know, Manigualt rose to fame in 2004 as a contestant on Trump’s reality TV show. Though he ultimately fired her, the two remained on good terms — with Manigault returning for a Celebrity Apprentice season. She later served as a prominent Trump surrogate and his director of African-American outreach during his presidential campaign.

Before her wedding, Manigualt celebrated a bridal going away party with her White House co-workers, including Kellyanne Conway.

This includes the already infamous section where players must find a way to “Overload the generator” near the end of the opening Homecoming mission.

Florida Woman Took Photo with Slain Police Officer Just Minutes Before He Died in London Attack

A Florida mother vacationing in London snapped a picture with police officer Keith Palmer just minutes before he was killed in Wednesday’s terror attack on Parliament.

Staci Martin said she was visiting London for the first time over spring break when she stumbled upon the 48-year-old officer wearing a “funny hat,” she told WPTV.

“I see his hat and I’m like, ‘I have to take a picture of him with his hat,” she told the station, noting that the attacks occurred less than an hour after the photo was taken. “We got in an Uber not even 15 seconds later, we turned to the corner and this guy came up to the window and was like, ‘there was a shooting, there was a shooting.”

Palmer was among four victims killed in the deadly car and knife attack outside U.K. Parliament. The assailant — identified by Scotland Yard as U.K. native Khalid Masood — careened through the area at about 2:40 p.m. local time, hitting dozens of pedestrians before crashing into the gate outside the Palace of Westminster.

He got out of the vehicle and stabbed Palmer before being killed by guards, authorities said. Scotland Yard is calling the incident terrorism.

Martin said she saw Palmer’s picture in media after the attack and couldn’t believe her eyes.

“They put his picture up and I said, ‘I think that’s the guy’ and my husband and daughter thought I was crazy,” she told WPTV. “We just couldn’t believe it.”

In the photo, Martin is shown smiling wide while Palmer, who appeared to be on duty at the time, gave a small smirk.

She wrote of the photo in a Facebook post, according to WFTS.

“At 1:52 p.m., we were walking passed Parliament and I saw an officer. I liked his funny hat so I asked him if we could take a picture … He was very polite,” she wrote.

“At 2:40 he was fatally stabbed by the terrorist and died leaving behind a wife and children.”

Prime Minister May said the attacker was British-born and known to authorities, the Associated Press reports.

In the wake of the incident, authorities arrested eight people in raids around Britain, according to CNN. Their connection to the attack was not immediately clear.

Martin told WFTS that she is shocked by the timing of the events.

“You think if I had only been there a half an hour later in the exact spot,” she said. “You can call it God or fate or whatever you want to call it, it’s a little bit surreal for sure.”

This Eating Disorder Awareness Campaign Takes Down The ‘Before’ Photo

This is how you make a statement.

Recently, some Instagram users took on the “before and after” photos ― the phenomenon where people post images of their bodies from when they were dealing with an eating disorder and then pictures of them after they recovered ― through a hashtag campaign called #BoycottTheBefore. The posts feature a blacked out “before” image as a way to make it clear that appearance comparisons aren’t always reflective of a “healthy” body and mind.

The campaign is meant to address the triggering nature of the photos for those recovering from an eating disorder. It was created by Lexie Louise, A 21-year-old body postivie blogger, in mid-February after analyzing her own personal before-and-after recovery photos. She realized that they could be triggering for others who may also be dealing with an eating disorder or send the wrong message about what the condition actually looks like.

#BoycottTheBefore I have an article that will be published on the sister website of @neda soon that discusses this in more detail. I'll share it when it's posted but wanted to share some now. ((I don't intend to shame anyone who has shared their recovery photos. I'd like to offer different perspectives because it's important to open the conversation rather than assume everyone is on board. I hope those who disagree can speak kindly and non-judgmentally in return.)) For those in early recovery especially, our eating disorders can tempt us to compare numbers or sizes, or even make us question, "Am I sick enough to receive help? Because that person seems to need it more than me". That can be very harmful when it comes to this. These photos also solely show physical growth. It is a huge misconception still that those who have eating disorders must be physically underweight to be considered struggling. It reinforces a misconception that you can see who is struggling. The truth is: we aren't telling the whole story through these photos, even with our captions. There are people in recovery who don't feel comfortable sharing their photos at all. And there are also people in recovery who simply cannot relate to having any shocking physical changes. Overall, though those of us who can share these photos are praised for sharing them and may be creating short term change, we are feeding into the misconceptions of eating disorders and sadly not making room to create real, long term change. So let’s fight back. I encourage you to responsibly share your recovery story this NEDA awareness week if you feel comfortable doing so. I also encourage you to factor in other people – those in recovery and those whom we are trying to educate. And I encourage you to use the photo pictured on the left as your “before” photo if you want to support this project. We are so much more than comparison photos. We are strong, resilient warriors and we will go against the grain and continue to fight to be seen and heard – even if that means not receiving instant validation. Like recovery, change takes time; it is a journey but it is possible.

A post shared by Lexie ✨ (@soworthsaving) on

Posting these comparison photos is enabling the idea that you can see those who have eating disorders,” she wrote in an Instagram caption following deleting the images. “It is also enabling the competition among those struggling with thoughts like, ‘well, I’m not sick enough to get help because I don’t look like that.’”

Since she started the campaign, the hashtag has taken off with more than 1,000 submissions. Model Iskra Lawrence, who has been open about her own recovery from an eating disorder, shared her own boycott photo.

(This post is regarding Eating Disorders & recovery NOT the fitness industry / or weight loss) . Please read before passing judgement as this is NOT me telling you NOT to post before and afters or diminishing the achievements and accomplishments of those who are proud of their journeys. I love seeing people celebrating how far they've come and totally get why (myself included) choose to post before and afters. . But let's open the discussion….. #BoycottTheBefore was started by @soworthsaving and I'm so proud to be part of this movement. . I myself have felt the pressure to post before and after pics to validate that I too suffered… but that's not right. We do not need to prove that we struggled, we do not need to feel like anyone may have struggled more or less because maybe there before and after photos aren't as "dramatic". It's not even about that, it's always about how far you've come so @boycottthebefore is here to celebrate YOU right now! To celebrate how far you've come and maybe how far you still have to go – there is no perfect recovery & everyones is completely unique. . I do however want to say I'm not against posting before and afters, I have done so too and will be keeping them up. However this is also a really great message and I hope to see lots of of you tagging me in your pics (I've shared pics of those who tagged me just swipe to see)… I'm forever inspired by the recovery & bopo communities and I'm grateful for every single person who empowers each other and shares their beautiful unique spark with us all. .

Sharing a 'before' (usually dangerously underweight and causes shock and grimace in many) against the 'after' (usually a healthier weight and probably smiling) is something commonly occurring on ED awareness week. This is only showing a physical change and one that feeds into the underweight body stereotype (and for those who have suffered that never have been underweight, where does that leave them?) I'm not going to put a 'before' photograph of myself on that may trigger others or potentially make others feel like their eating disorder is less valid. My own eating disorder would love me to post one, for some means of validation/reassurance and proof to others that 'hey look yes I was dangerously ill and here is your proof now you have to believe me by this to justify whatever belief you have about someone with anorexia' NO. I have nothing to prove to anyone . Trying to spread the word of eating disorders being an internal battle and illness of the mind but posting photographs reinforcing the opposite? It isn't a competition (whatever your eating disorder may say). Telling people how you exercised x amount and weighed xlbs and survived on only x a day does not educate people on this mental illness. I don't want to be reinforcing this stigma that so people are trying so hard to break away from. Boycott the before. #boycottthebefore #nedaweek #eatingdisorderawareness #recovery #mentalhealth #educate #youarenotyourmentalillness

A post shared by Charlie Storey (@wakeupinwoodland) on

A few weeks ago I quietly started a journey of true body acceptance. I haven't opened up to anyone about it until today. I was tired of being obsessed with a weight loss goal, letting food run my life, and always having what I'm eating or when I will reach my magic weight loss goal number on my mind. It was becoming an obsession, and it had to stop. I went into it with my whole heart. Done weighing myself, but still eating as healthy as I can, working out on a regular basis, and not beating myself up over every cookie that I have. It's been one of the most humbling experiences of my life and I've never felt more confident and beautiful. As a nutrition student the most valuable lesson that I've learned is that we are more than just a number. As long as you live a healthy life overall, that's all that matters. Being skinny does not mean being healthy. Healthy comes in all shapes and sizes! So on this day, you will never see another before and after picture or weight loss post from me. My before is just as wonderful as my after. Also I will never help anyone "lose weight" again. However if you are truly interested in improving your HEALTH and getting HEALTHY, I've got your back! Contact me. Weight loss will probably be a bonus from that, but I will no longer encourage reaching one number, that number does not define who you are. Stay healthy. Stay beautiful. Stay what you are. #boycottthebefore @boycottthebefore #loveyourself #loveyourbody #bodypositive

An estimated 30 million people have an eating disorder in the U.S. Eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness group, according to the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorders.

This staggering fact is further proof that they need to be taken seriously. One way to do that is to increase public awareness, which can send the message that the condition is manageable with treatment. That’s why social media movements like #BoycottTheBefore are so vital: They highlight recovery over everything else.

“I am in recovery. I am living again. I am thriving,” Lousie wrote on Instagram.
“And I don’t have to prove that I was sick by showing you my body.”

A CFNM Carol and ‘Twas the Night Before CFNM


‘A CFNM Carol’ is an updated, erotic adaptation of Charles Dickens’ immortal ‘A Christmas Carol’. Jeremiah Scrooge, a handsome middle-aged businessman, angrily rebuffs his girlfriend’s invitation to a Christmas Eve CFNM party, where clothed females are to be accompanied by naked men. That evening, he is visited by a trio of spirits who attempt to restore his enthusiasm for CFNM. The first of the three spirits, the Ghost of CFNM Past, is a glowing, platinum-blonde angel who tows him back to his college years to relive key moments in his life that influenced his current attitude. The second, the Ghost of CFNM Present, is a gorgeous, redheaded party girl who takes him on a whirlwind tour of various contemporary CFNM situations. The last spirit, the Ghost of CFNM Yet to Come, is a frightening Phantom in the guise of a robed old woman. She shows him shadows of things that portend a bad future for Scrooge if he doesn’t learn to love CFNM.”Twas the Night Before CFNM’ is a short poem loosely based on Clement Moore’s “Twas the Night Before Christmas’ and tells the story of a young man who arrives prematurely for a Christmas Eve CFNM party.

Ten Things You Need to do Before You Turn Thirty

What are 10 things that you should definitely do before turning 30? originally appeared on Quorathe place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.

Answer by Max Lukominskyi, Founder of Perfect Impulse, on Quora:

Ten things you should definitely do before you turn thirty:

  1. Get Your Heart Broken. It is not the most pleasant experience in life. Unfortunately, it is inevitable. However, it is the invaluable lesson everyone should go through. Get your heart broken to learn the hard way how cruel and tough the life can be.
  2. Realize That Life Has Already Begun. The sooner you do this the sooner you will be able to start doing the things that matter. Every decision matters and every choice counts. There is no interlude. Nor is there a trial version. Therefore, strive to live a meaningful life now.
  3. Write An Article. Develop a strong point of view regarding the particular issue and do your best to express your thoughts in the best way possible. Get your voice featured on the popular outlet and praise yourself for this small accomplishment.
  4. Master A Valuable Skill. Your ability to apply your knowledge and produce some great results is what lets you stand out and makes others pay you for your services. Opt for mastery and strive to become the best at what you do.
  5. Slay Your Fears. Stop living your fears as soon as possible. Do not enter the fourth decade of your life being afraid of trivial things. Learn to live beyond your comfort zone and slay your fears to live the life to the fullest.
  6. Establish A Few Useful Connections. You cannot know everyone and know how to do everything. The good thing is that you do not need to. Meanwhile, you can meet some great people that can give a valuable advice or come in your hour of need.
  7. Live Abroad For At Least A Year. Living abroad is not always fun and easy. This experience is often full of struggle and difficulties. Learn how to adapt to and survive in unfamiliar environments. Find out how to meet new friends and get used to a different culture.
  8. Establish A Good Habit Attitude. Then you won`t need to break a bad one. Habits might seem innocuous daily actions that do not make any impact on your life. In fact, they define how productive and successful you are. Adopt the habits that are the perfect fit for a person you`d like to be.
  9. Define Your Goals. Make sure you are not going to float along after you are 30. Make sure you get closer to the things you want to accomplish with every step you take. Make sure you know what you want and channel your energy towards attaining your goals.
  10. Get Into Challenging Environment. If you are not willing to start stagnating too soon, surround yourself with the people that are smarter, stronger and faster than you. They will motivate you to catch up and become better than you ever thought possible.

Michelle Obama Praised Mary Tyler Moore’s Influence Before Her Death

Former first lady Michelle Obama knows a role model when she sees one.

Months before Mary Tyler Moore died Wednesday at the age of 80, Obama talked about the influence the Emmy-winning actress had on her as a little girl.

Mary Richards, Moore’s unmarried, career-driven character on the beloved 1970s sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” showed Obama that she had choices.

She was one of the few single working women depicted on television at the time,” Obama told Variety in an August interview pointed out by Entertainment Weekly. “She wasn’t married. She wasn’t looking to get married. At no point did the series end in a happy ending with her finding a husband — which seemed to be the course you had to take as a woman. But she sort of bucked that. She worked in a newsroom, she had a tough boss and she stood up to him. She had close friends, never bemoaning the fact that she was a single. She was very proud and comfortable in that role.

“I was probably 10 or 11 when I saw that, and sort of started thinking, ‘You know what? Marriage is an option. Having a family is an option. And going to school and getting your education and building your career is another really viable option that can lead to happiness and fulfillment.”

BOOK SALE UPDATE!

Watching Al Gore’s New Climate Change Doc Before Trump’s Inauguration Was Eerie

When I first realized Donald Trump’s inauguration would occur on the second day of the Sundance Film Festival, I felt relief. Instead of being glued to the inevitable Twitter meltdown as our nation plunges into an alarming new era, I could embrace toasty theaters at an event where art prevails. Phew. 

Upon arriving in snowy Park City on Thursday, the rose-color glasses I’d donned felt a bit more pallid. Reality had sunk in, and suddenly I wondered whether it was even appropriate to spend the weekend seeing movies while a new political order emerges in real time. Then I sat down for my first screening, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” and those glasses lost their focus altogether. 

“An Inconvenient Sequel” is Al Gore’s follow-up to “An Inconvenient Truth,” the Oscar-winning documentary that in 2006 electrified the debate surrounding climate change. “Truth,” a showcase for Gore’s PowerPoint lectures about the horrors of global warming, was an exercise in apprehension. “Fix this now, or we are doomed,” the movie screamed. Many, thankfully, listened. So many, in fact, that “An Inconvenient Sequel” is brimming with hope, sort of.

Now, listen. I’m a movie journalist. I can’t pretend to write this as a climate-change sage of any kind. But, as science-y as these documentaries are, they are surprisingly easy to understand, especially in tone. (Credit this time around is owed to directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, whose film reveals more about Gore than Davis Guggenheim managed in “An Inconvenient Truth.”) Yes, weather-related catastrophes have continued at frightening rates; just look at the recent floodings in Florida and Louisiana, or the shrinking Manhattan coastline predicted in “Truth.” But the sequel praises the world’s remarkable strides over the past 11 years, chiefly 2015’s United Nations conference in Paris, which resulted in a wide-ranging agreement to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions and prevent Earth’s temperatures from continuing to rise.

A sense of achievement pervades the movie ― and then, right as promise for the health of our planet swells, Trump gets elected. In the final scene, Gore sits at his laptop, watching the president-elect call climate change an “expensive hoax” and vow to withdraw from the Paris accord

When I checked my phone after “An Inconvenient Sequel” ended, another New York Times push notification about Trump’s links to Russian president Vladimir Putin had come though. More of the same. The next morning, after the former reality TV star was inaugurated, Twitter informed me that the Obama administration’s climate-change page had been removed from the White House website.

Suddenly the outcomes Gore and his allies had effected seemed lost to what we call the “transition of power.” What a way to begin Sundance, usually a joyful occasion about celebrating creativity.

At Thursday night’s premiere of the aptly titled Netflix dark comedy “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” Park City mayor Jack Thomas spoke of his town’s own efforts to combat climate change. Watching Thomas speak, it was hard to believe so much of the world beyond this little festival bubble would aggressively protest. 

On Friday morning, as journalists poured out of a press screening of “The Incredible Jessica James,” talk turned to Trump. I congregated outside the theater with a cabal of journalists, many of whom adored the movie (myself included), particularly because it offered comforting counter-programming to the inaugural speech we’d just avoided.

Starring Jessica Williams, “Jessica James” borrows familiar post-breakup romantic-comedy beats, but its voice is distinctly modern. Fictional Jessica is an aspiring New York playwright with a progressive worldview that implicitly opposes much of Trump’s rhetoric. At her younger sister’s baby shower, for example, the titular marriage-averse millennial gifts a self-illustrated picture book called Subverting the ABCs of the Patriarchal Paradigm.

The movie provided a charming 85-minute reminder of the inclusive landscape we assume Hillary Clinton’s presidency would have fostered. And then, as we stragglers went our separate ways, it was back to reality. The bubble had burst. Trump was our president. (Jessica Williams 2020.)

Less than 24 hours after the festival’s start, Sundance is in a weird mood. Yet, just like most of this fearful country, those of us in Park City must decide how to move forward. In “An Inconvenient Sequel,” Gore recalls having to do the same when the Supreme Court decided George W. Bush would be our president, and look how much progress Gore encouraged in the years since. If there’s relief from the chaos in these Utah mountains, maybe that’s OK. 

“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” opens in theaters June 28. “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” hits Netflix on Feb. 24. “The Incredible Jessica James” is hoping to secure theatrical distribution at Sundance.

David Bowie Didn’t Know Cancer Was Terminal Until Three Months Before Death

Days before the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death, a new documentary is shedding light on the singer’s final years before he lost an 18-month battle to liver cancer.  

Directed by Francis Whately, “David Bowie: The Last Five Years,” airing on BBC Two Saturday, follows the rock icon on his 2003 A Reality Tour, as well as throughout the production of his last studio album, “Blackstar.”

According to Johan Renck, the director for the music video of the album’s final single, “Lazarus,” the 69-year-old rock icon discovered his cancer was terminal only three months before his death, while he was still working on the video. 

According to the BBC, Renck explains in the documentary that he wasn’t made aware of Bowie’s diagnosis until after filming the video for “Lazarus,” which heavily features death and rebirth symbolism.

“I found out later that the week we were shooting is when he found out that it is over,” Renck said.

Despite the imagery that suggests Bowie was contemplating his own mortality through his music ― the video begins with the singer in a hospital bed with gauze covering his eyes ― the director denies that the music video had anything to do with his illness. The Guardian reports that Renck created the vision for “Lazarus” a week before learning of Bowie’s diagnosis. 

“David said: ‘I just want to make it a simple performance video,’” Renck recalled. “I immediately said, ‘The song is called Lazarus, you should be in the bed.’ … To me it had to do with the biblical aspect of it … it had nothing to do with him being ill.”

Bowie kept his illness a secret from almost everyone around him in an effort to protect his family and continue work on his final album. According to the Guardian, the singer was making a sequel to “Lazarus” just weeks before his death. 

“I don’t find it strange he kept his illness so private,” the documentary’s director, Francis Whately, told the Guardian. “He’d had his life picked over for 40 years and he thought he had said everything he wanted to say, there was nothing more.”

Chance the Rapper marked what will be President Barack Obama’s last holiday season in office by spoofing Run-DMC’sChristmas in Hollis” track on “Saturday Night Live.”

The hip-hop star joined forces with regular “SNL” cast members Kenan Thompson and Leslie Jones for the music video of the catchy “Jingle Barack” song. There was even a cameo appearance by the real-life DMC, aka Darryl McDanielstoward the end.

But the upbeat number came with a serious message, principally a warning of what will happen this time next year — once President-elect Donald Trump is in the White House.

“Hey kids enjoy the presents while you can, because next year you might get a bomb from Iran,” rapped Thompson, with Chance later adding: “I’mma hurt myself before we lose Obamacare.”

What accounting rules did Germany, France and the Netherlands possess before they adopted IAS? (Germany, France and the Netherlands and their adoption of International Accounting Standards Book 2)


Accounting Honours University Essay In 2000 the European Union decided that all EU listed companies would have to prepare their consolidated reports in accordance with the international accounting standards (IAS) of the International Accounting Standards Committee by 2005. In general, member states can govern themselves but the EU has the power to influence their self-governance. In 2000, after the EU decision, the accounting regulators of each member state were free to decide when they wanted to adopt IAS for their nation’s listed company consolidated reports, provided it was done by 2005. German, French and Dutch accounting regulators decided to adopt IAS for their nations’ listed company consolidated reports before the 2005 deadline (the Germans and French in 1998 and the Dutch in 2001). The purpose of this paper is to examine what Germany, France and the Netherlands possessed, in the way of accounting rules and regulations for their listed companies, before the decisions of their accounting regulators to adopt IAS for the consolidated reports of their listed companies. The motivation behind this purpose comes from the recent book entitled: International Accounting by Choi, F.D.S. & Meek, G.K. (2005). The book details the history behind the current accounting rules and regulations for the listed companies of the above three European nations. This paper aims to expand on the claims made in the book by Choi & Meek. The basic material from Choi & Meek is detailed in the paper, in a summarised form, and is added to with that from other academic sources. This paper also aims to contribute analysis to the material contained in it by presenting a comparison of the accounting rules and regulations in Germany, France and the Netherlands before their accounting regulators adopted IAS for their listed company consolidated reports. This paper will be based on secondary sources of information such as academic articles, research papers, accounting books and online journals.

We Can Definitively Say We’ve Never Seen Taylor Swift Wear This Before

Taylor Swift, is that you?!

The singer recently stepped out in a look that’s so far from her signature crop top and circle skirt combo that it required a comically over-the-top double take. Is this the further influence of boyfriend Calvin Harris on her off-duty style? We investigate.

Taylor Swift off brand styleAKM-GSI



Over the last couple of years, Swift’s ultra-feminine style (think: girlie matching sets, prim purses and glam heels) has become her signature. But lately, the 1989 singer been stepping out in looks that are so far from her go-to girly and frilly ensembles to much more dressed-down outfits. And it’s all culminated in this.

RELATED PHOTOS: Countdown to Coachella! Festival-Inspired Style Picks We’re Loving Now

Swift stepped out in a pair of itty-bitty denim shorts, an oversize camo-printed military jacket, an oversize black Saint Laurent bag and … a pair of sneakers! Yes, the queen of heels ditched her usual sky-high footwear for a toned-down (and comfortable) pair of Coachella-inspired, fringe Saint Laurent sneakers during a girlfriend get-together in Malibu.

This isn’t the only look that supports our theory on Tay’s evolving style. A few weeks ago, she wore a show-stopping silver metallic two-piece set (technically still in her style wheelhouse) with sexy cutouts and a daringly high hemline. She teamed the form-fitting number with strappy black sandals and a Jimmy Choo burgundy chain-strap purse. (And we can’t forget her weekend filled with sheer, shimmery LBDS.)

But we’re still stuck on those jean shorts and fringed sneakers. Is she prepping for a Calvin Harris set at Coachella? Will we next see her in a crochet bikini top and Frye boots? We’ll find out this weekend.

Both 20 Questions eBay books take readers step-by-step through the process, each chapter building on the information taught.

Ode to a Royal Fashion Icon: 15 Princess Diana Outfits That You May Not Have Seen Before

It’s hard to believe that Monday, August 31, will mark 18 years since the tragic death of Princess Diana. And while the People’s Princess died at the young age of 36, she certainly left her mark on the world and of course, on style.

Diana is famous for having fun with fashion. In the ’80s is was all about bold colors—fuchsia! cerulean! amethyst!—prints, and the most decadent collection of diamond tiaras, befitting of a princess. Later on in the ’90s she went for a sleeker look in line with the times. With Gianni Versace as a close friend and go-to designer, she transformed into Di 2.0. Her look got ultra sophisticated with elegant suits in sherbet hues and body conscious tank dresses in stark white or midnight blue, accentuating her piercing blue. Here, we look back to one of the great fashion icons with vintage photos of our favorite looks, that inspire us still.

One Rule to Know Before You Break All the Rules

This article was originally published on riskology.co

I’ve always been an early riser, but I’m not what you would call a morning person. I like the peace and serenity that comes with a sun rise when no one else is awake. I like knowing that when I wake up, I’m guaranteed a hot shower. Lately, I’ve noticed I like getting my daily exercise done early so that it’s out of the way and I can focus on other things for the rest of the day.

Until just a few months ago, I had a day job in the construction industry. Getting up early in that line of work is a prerequisite. On my first day, I was issued an official alarm clock and coffee grinder. If you’re not an early riser, you’re going to become one.

Apparently, I missed a memo, because early mornings at the office aren’t usually spent enjoying the sunrise or improving your health. They’re spent sweating bullets trying to finish work that was neglected yesterday or put out fires that someone else started.

Not exactly my cup of tea, so to speak. I like mornings, but I like them on my own terms.

The Indoctrination

I’m sure you’ve had the misfortune at some point in life of trying to reconcile what you wanted to do with what you thought you had to do. This is exactly the situation I found myself in and it was thoroughly problematic. All these rules that someone else made and I had to follow.

When I was new, I just tried to fit in and do what everyone else was doing. “That’s just how it is,” they said. You show up at 7:00 every morning and leave at 5:00 every evening. It had to be for a reason, right? Besides, I was on an prosperous career track. If I could just get used to this schedule, spending the first hours of every day pulling my hair out in what felt like a incoherent stupor, there’d be years of financial good fortune ahead of me.

This is the part where I state loudly and quite firmly, “Wrong!”

I was fresh to the professional world and wet behind the ears, but it didn’t take too long to figure out why we had this 7:00 to 5:00 rule. Of course, I’ve always been aware that most companies keep set working hours, I just wasn’t always sure why.

Turns out, they had a pretty good reason. Know what it is?

Most employees (in any industry) are completely mediocre and mediocre employees demand (yes, demand!) rules that tell them how to behave.

Setting a schedule that says you show up at 7:00 and leave at 5:00 is an easy way to ensure that average people are at work for an average of 10 hours a day and, if the averages play out, a few of them are productive.

Now, I enjoy sitting around and being unproductive just as much as the next guy, but its not a hobby I care for at work. I like to reserve that kind of activity for weekends and downtime after I feel like I’ve really accomplished something.

At the same time, though, who can kick ass for 10 straight hours? I’m trying, you know, but my bionic brain is still on back order. I felt forced into a position where I either had to completely drain myself every day or adopt this law of averages that just felt wrong.

There’s good news, though. If this is how you feel too, and you’re willing to work a little smarter, you can start making your own rules about your schedule, or about anything at work or in life for that matter.

A Little “Experiment” With Rules

When I realized what kind of system I was in, I knew right away that I wanted out, but I liked my paycheck and I wasn’t really interested in trying to change an entire corporation’s policy.

I’d gotten a lot of praise for the work I’d been doing and it seemed like everyone was really happy with my results, so I decided to do a little test — I quit showing up at 7:00. Yep. I just quit going to work on time. I didn’t do it all at once, and I didn’t just start showing up after lunch, but slowly and surely I started coming to work later and later and doing it more frequently.

And you know what happened? Absolutely nothing! No one even noticed.

You can probably do it too (even though I can hear you saying in your head that it would never work at your job).

Sure, there are some jobs where this kind of stunt won’t work. If you work on an assembly line and all the pieces pile up at your station and break the machine because you’re not there on time, you’re probably out of luck.

But there are far more jobs where it will work. If you’re reading this article between the hours of 7:00 am and 5:00 pm at your desk, then yes, I believe you can do it.

The Secret Formula for Changing the Rules

There’s a catch, though. Are you surprised? There always is, isn’t there?

Remember what I said about average employees needing rules to tell them how to behave? You can’t be one of those average employees and expect to pull this off.

Thankfully, it really doesn’t take much to excel above “average.” If you can grasp this concept (it’s the most important one there is to beating “average”) then you’re well on your way to a much happier workplace:

Success is measured in output of value, not input of effort.

A lot of people think that if they put in the hours, they’ll be noticed and recognized for their effort. It isn’t true. Unfortunately, no one cares how long it took you to complete a job or finish a proposal, or do anything else, really. What they care about is that it got done, it worked, and it worked well.

In fact, the only time anyone is going to care how long it took to do something is when it took too long. And that’s not something you want to be recognized for.

Once you have a real understanding of this concept, you can start using simple productivity tricks to abandon the standard corporate work formula that looks something like this:

(1 hr. of half ass work) + (1 hr. of surfing the net) + (30 min. of frantic work to meet a deadline) = 1 happy boss/customer/client

and substitute it for a much nicer formula that looks like this:

(1 hr. of focused productivity) = 1 really, really happy boss/customer/client

Get it done. Make it work. Make it work well. Consistently nail those 3 things, and you can start changing any rules you want to.

Action is a Revolutionary Act

It’s pretty easy to see how fast you can get ahead when you embrace the reality that people appreciate effort, but they expect results. The funny thing is that this is not a revolutionary concept. When you read it, your first reaction was probably, “Duh!” This is something that everyone, on some level, understands.

But actually implementing it is a revolutionary act. There’s a huge disconnect between those that understand the concept of results over effort and those that actually live by it.

It isn’t easy to do. Most people have been trained their whole lives to do exactly the opposite. They’re even programmed to try to put a stop to it when you decide to do it. But resisting the urge to fit in is exactly what makes you stand out.

If you want to change the rules in another man’s game, you must make yourself an indispensable asset to him. Once you accomplish that, you’re free to make the rules as you see fit and what seems like dangerous behavior to many is, in fact, more empowering to you.

The real danger in this idea comes once you realize you’re tired of playing another’s game. Not a danger to you, but a danger to them. But that’s an article for another day.

Now, over to you. What are your tactics for changing the rules in someone else’s game?

Photographer Captures Breathtaking Images Of Conjoined Twins Before Surgery

Three-month-old Maria Clara and Maria Eduarda Oliveira Santana are conjoined twins from Salvador, Brazil. They are currently awaiting surgical separation in Goiânia, Brazil and living at the Casa do Interior de Goiás — a center that provides lodging and food to patients and their families.

Earlier this month, family photographer Mateus André had the opportunity to photograph the twins and speak to their parents, 20-year-old Denise Borges Oliveira and Caique Santana Ramos dos Santos. André told The Huffington Post that the family is “very poor” and “going through a lot of problems.”

“I met them by chance, when my wife and I were spending some days in Goiânia,” he said. “We were walking in the city, and I saw a story on TV asking for donations.” Wanting to help the family, he visited the couple with their daughters at the center. 

“The girls’ condition is not easy, the place is poor, and they need and will need many donations,” André said, explaining that the parents have to take turns sleeping so that they can care for the twins. But, he added, “in spite of all difficulties they face, the family can be hopeful with the awaited surgery, and they really believe in a better future.”

Because the girls share a liver, the surgery is risky, but the medical staff is optimistic. The photographer said he still keeps in touch with the parents and the girls’ progress via WhatsApp.

André said he wants to use photography to bring attention to children and babies with physical and intellectual disabilities. “I have a very big responsibility to show other sides of childhood, because reality is full of faces, and the ones that need more attention are those people who are treated by society as insignificant people,” he told HuffPost. “Photography has the power to break such concepts and truly draw attention to something valuable, since these people are not alone in the world.”
