Jenni Rivera's youngest son, Johnny Angel Lopez left a heart-wrenching and unsettling message on his Instagram page on Father's Day--and I have to be honest, it left me a little worried.
I hope with all my heart that the 12-year-old is going to therapy and at least trying to delve into the pain that his mom's pasing is causing him, especially now. I'm sure what he's going through is extremely difficult and can have serious consequences if not treated.Continue Reading >
Everyone has different preferences when it comes to their sex lives, but it turns out that people who like it "kinkier" are better off mentally than those who don't. A study done at Tilburg University in the Netherlands found that those who engaged in BDSM are psychologically happier and more confident than those who are less experimental.
The survey asked how the subjects coped with insecurities, socializing, attachment style to determine their outcome. So why are those into 50 Shades of Grey type sex living a better life than the rest of the world? Let's just say the answer has something to do with a quality MANY couples lack.
I've always thought dreams can hold real meaning ... and according to a new study, they do! New research investigating the predictive value of dreams has found that having nightmares about a partner cheating could actually indicate the relationship is headed for trouble.Continue Reading >
I grew up in a beach town and spent my whole childhood outdoors, which is why I think there's still nothing I enjoy more than being in the sun! And though I know there can be repercussions to being outdoors for long periods of time (particularly without any sunscreen), I also firmly believe that a little sunshine can go a long way.
That's why I wasn't surprised to see a recent study that the UV rays a little sun exposure can actually help you live longer.Continue Reading >
Cynthia Wachenheim--the Harlem mom who died after jumping from her eight-floor window, but whose baby miraculously survived--was convinced her infant son would be disabled for the rest of his life because she had failed to protect him. At least, according to the harrowing 13-page suicide note she left in which she attempted to explain her "evil" decision, as she called it. According to a law enforcement official who told The New York Times he had seen the note, Wachenheim made reference to "two shameful events" that caused her son, Keston Bacharach, to fall and hurt himself.
And although no one, not her friends, her family or her pediatrician, believed there was anything wrong with Keston, his mother says they were all wrong.Continue Reading >
A recent survey found that 1 in 4 women lied about their activities via social media once a month. Keep this in mind the next time you log onto Facebook: That female friend who gloats about her awesome life could totally be fibbing! The Pencourage study, which was conducted on 2,000 women, discovered that they are more likely to lie about being on vacation, their job, even alcohol consumption on their social media pages.
But why would women even care enough to lie on a site such as Facebook or Twitter? The answer is something we can all relate to...Continue Reading >
Women have long used the excuse that they have a headache to get away with not having sex with their husbands. Now it looks like that excuse may fall flat on them as new research has found that sex may cure headaches. Scientists found that 1 in 5 migraine sufferers who had sex during an attack experienced an improvement to no symptoms at all afterwards.
So why does sex help get hid a throbbing headache? You may be surprised by the answer!Continue Reading >
It turns out that all this blame we've placed on the media telling girls they need to be thinner is wrong. In fact, new research says we should be looking at our daughters friends because they may be influencing these body image problems.
These findings were discovered after 237 girls ages 10 through 17 were surveyed regarding their favorite TV shows, rating how they felt about their bodies, peer competition, and social media activity. They were asked the same questions 6 months later concluding that peer influence affected their self esteem a whole lot more than any celebrities they were exposed to.Continue Reading >
Does this picture make you want to punch something? Or have you ever looked at a cute baby or puppy and said: "I just want to eat you up"? It's a figure of expression we use when looking at something irresistibly adorable, and now science has found out just why we react the way we do!
Researchers discovered that while we verbalize our need to squeeze something cute like a puppy, we also act on it. They called that initial reaction "cute aggression" and although it sounds scary, it's actually the norm!Continue Reading >
I have a love/hate relationship with diet soda. I love it because I sometimes need the sweetness of a caffeine boost and I don't want the calories, but I hate it because I know that diet soda isn't much better for me than regular soda since even just drinking ONE diet soda a day can give you a higher risk of heart attack or stroke. Well, now it turns out that there's one other major side effect of saving your calories by drinking diet soda: a new study has found a link between drinking diet soda or diet fruit drinks and an increased risk of depression.Continue Reading >
