(BBC) – Uma britânica de 23 anos, diagnosticada com câncer de mama, ganhou sucesso na internet com um blog em que dá dicas de dicas de beleza para pessoas que enfrentam a mesma doença.

O blog de Laura Cannon, CliqueLaura Louise and her Naughty Disease, já tem mais de 150 mil seguidores. Nele, além de dar conselhos sobre como ficar bonita, ela fala sobre o seu tratamento.

Cannon passou por quimioterapia e uma mastectomia dupla e diz que queria ajudar outras jovens com a doença, ao mesmo tempo que tornava sua batalha “o mais divertida possível”.

Ela foi diagnosticada com câncer de mama no dia 22 de novembro do ano passado e logo depois começou a escrever o blog.

As postagens incluem fotos dela cortando o que cabelo após o início da quimioterapia, quando ela já estava começando a ficar careca.

“Eu fiz diferentes estilos de corte, inclusive um…

Ode To A Desk


Stephanie Raffelock

Opened notebook, pen, books and glasses
The massive roll-top was a beast of a desk. Purchased his first year in practice, it represented what he was becoming: a teacher, a doctor, a man with vision and a heart full of idealism. It had stood out at The Antique Guild, the place where a generation of us longed for things worn and aged from a different time, history and story that could be traced in the grain of old oak and an imagining of where it had come from.

When the top was rolled up, twelve small drawers outlined the top of the desk, dropping down into other small compartments and shelving, but leaving a large surface for writing, for books, for charts and manuals that became part of his life. File drawers were stuffed with notes and articles about nutrition and biochemistry. The whole thing was chaotic and scattered, but he knew where everything was and…

Your Brain Cells Shrink While You Sleep (And That’s a Good Thing)


Health & Family

In a predatory world, sleep doesn’t make much evolutionary sense. Why would any creature lie down, shut its eyes and not move for about a third of a day? It’s like an invitation to be eaten.

The Real Secret To More Willpower: Be Power Hungry


Health & Family

The word willpower conjures things like laundry day, drunk texting and chocolate cake.  It is what motivates us to resist what we desire, and to tackle tasks we’d rather avoid, in the name of personal betterment. While the motivations behind washing your clothes or avoiding dessert seem rather clear, a new study found that fuzzier unconscious motivations can steer our actions, and that high-achievers and wannabe bosses may have more capacity to dodge cake, or do pesky chores if there’s a reward at the end.

Those who crave power and leadership roles have more  in the willpower department, according to researchers at the Technical University of Munich whose findings were published recently in the online Journal of Personality. Since  willpower is a finite resource, and easily depleted, the professors asked study subjects to perform two willpower-measuring tasks involving popular films, no prior acting experience required.

Just Go Away


Blog of the Courtier

No matter how much one likes to make plans, life has a way of throwing in a monkey wrench – or five – to throw things off-balance or get things moving in a completely different direction from what one intended.  For people of faith, like this scrivener, there comes a point when one must recognize that a brief respite for reconsideration before proceeding is necessary.  That point is usually when your spiritual director tells you that you need to get out of town. Now.

So last week when I heard those words, I began to look for a retreat center in the Washington metropolitan area I could go to for the long Columbus Day weekend.  Unfortunately, everything within a reasonable distance seemed not only to already be full, but catering to specific issues or groups which would not make sense for me to join even if there were open spaces…
