If A Grown Man Threw A Tantrum In A Store The Way 4-Year-Olds Do

In the newest episode of “Convos With My 4-Year-Old,” dad Matthew Clarke finds himself dealing with the difficult situation that many parents face during the holiday season: trying to shop for gifts with your kids in tow.

In a scene that’s all too familiar to moms and dads, 4-year-old Coco, played by both David Milchard and Coco herself, ends up being quite literally dragged out of a store, throwing an epic tantrum over a toy wand that her parents won’t buy for her. As she screams “But I want it! But I love it!” her parents try to talk her down from her freakout, with a little help from baby brother Shepherd.

But the 4-year-old is stubborn, and ultimately the family decides to just go home. This episode, titled “Shopping,” is spot-on, especially how it captures the other shoppers’ facial expressions post tantrum.

Mom’s Exposure To Air Pollution In Pregnancy Doubles Child’s Risk Of Autism, Study Says

Moms Exposure To Air Pollution In Pregnancy Doubles Childs Risk Of Autism, Study Says

NEW YORK, Dec 18 (Reuters) – Children whose mothers were exposed to high levels of fine particulate pollution in late pregnancy have up to twice the risk of developing autism as children of mothers breathing cleaner air, scientists at Harvard School of Public Health reported on Thursday. The greater the exposure to fine particulates emitted by fires, vehicles, and industrial smokestacks the greater the risk, found the study, published online in Environmental Health Perspectives. Earlier research also found an autism-pollution connection, including a 2010 study that found the risk of autism doubled if a mother, during her third trimester, lived near a freeway, a proxy for exposure to particulates. But this is the first to examine the link across the United States, and “provides additional support” to

Plus-Size Woman Had Editors Photoshop Her Picture To Make Her ‘Beautiful’ — She Did Not Expect This

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Marie Southard Ospina, an associate fashion and beauty editor with Bustle, decided to put beauty in the hand of the beholder, asking photo editors from around the world to Photoshop her profile picture and make her “beautiful.” Ospina was inspired by journalists Esther Honig and Priscilla Yuki Wilson, both of whom conducted similar experiments earlier this year. While Honig focused on how culture and beauty pertain to women, Wilson examined how culture and beauty pertain to race; but Ospina, a 23-year-old, plus-size woman, focused on the cultural relationship between weight and beauty.

In her Bustle piece, Ospina writes:

Having grown up predominantly in the first world, I’m aware that in countries like the U.S. or the U.K. being fat is (although quite common) perceived as an inherently negative thing. Stereotypes include, but are not

Model Chloe Goins Says Bill Cosby Drugged Her And Licked Her Toes In 2008

Another woman has come forward with claims against Bill Cosby.

Chloe Goins, a 24-year-old model and dancer, told The Daily Mail that she attended a party with a friend at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in 2008, when she was 18 years old. Goins says that Cosby drugged and then led her into a bedroom where she later woke up, completely naked and in a daze, to find the comedian masturbating while licking and biting her toes.

In the last six months, more than 20 women have come forward accusing Cosby of sexually assaulting them over the course of five decades. However, Goins’ accusation against Cosby is the first that could fall within the statute of limitations for criminal charges. Goins’ lawyer told The Daily Mail that Goins wants justice for Cosby’s actions against her and the other women who have spoken out, and is planning to press charges soon.

By Libby MacCarthy for TheKnot.com

If you love going antiquing or live by the philosophy that one man’s trash is another’s treasure, you’re in for a treat. While antique, vintage and retro props are nothing new to weddings, lately we’ve been seeing couples getting creative with everything from salvaged windows to funky brass figurines and rusty trinkets to make some totally enviable ceremony and reception decor.

Weathered wood accents pair perfectly with a rustic, country affair, while silver, brass or copper accents will add a refined edge to an industrial-inspired event. Check out some of our favorite ideas below!
