1  Forum / Sports / Update: Serena Williams Plays Tennis In High Heels on: 24-08-2014 07:20AM

She’s the world’s number one ranked tennis player and he’s the greying host of The Late Show.
So no prizes for guessing who won when David Letterman played Serena Williams on a hastily constructed court outside the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York on Wednesday afternoon.
The 32-year-old showed off her fabulous six-pack tummy in a black cropped top and figure-hugging white skirt with horizontal thin black lines.
Not even the perilously high, spiked-heel shoes that wrapped above her ankles stopped Serena from displaying the form that has made her a champion.
Infact, she got so into the show game with her powerful strokes that one of her balls flew off the court and broke the window of the nearby Hello Deli.
With her long hair styled in waves, the tennis star accessorised with large hoop earrings and a long chain that she tucked inside her top for the game.
David took off his sports jacket and played in his shirt, tie and smart black trousers. After their knock-about, the 67-year-old gallantly kissed the tennis champ’s hand before they walked into the theatre.
Serena is a regular guest on The Late Show With David Letterman at this time of year in the media blitz that heralds the run up to the U.S. Open tennis championships when the top players take over New York.
She first won the US Open as a 17-year-old in 1999 and is set to push for a third consecutive and sixth overall win at her home Grand Slam.

7  Forum / The Buzz Central / Woman spends a fortune on plastic surgery to look like a cartoon she was jealous on: 22-08-2014 10:17PM

Krystina Butel,30, has spent over £130,000 on plastic surgery to transform herself into a £10 cartoon drawing of herself that she posed for in Ibiza when she was just 15.
She said
'When I saw the caricature for the first time on holiday, I was jealous of it. She was so glamorous. She was everything that I wanted to be.'It was like she was holding the carrot out to me, showing me what I could be.Over the years, I've spent more and more on beauty treatments and surgery so I can look just like her.'
This has included five Bosom  augmentations, lip injections, botox, teeth whitening and semi-permanent make-up. Salon owner Krystina even has heart-shaped nipples to complete the 'cartoon' look.
'My caricature keeps me going with my dream. She looks exactly how I want to look like. I know I'm closer to it now than I was fifteen years ago but there's always something else I can get in terms of surgery to be more like it.
'I can always rely on my caricature to show me what I need to do next. I never think that I'm done for good with my plastic surgery. She shows me that there's never enough.'
'That caricature's my icon and it's good to see it and reflect on what I need to look more like. It shows me that I'm not done yet with my cosmetic work.

'I don't think I'll ever stop having surgery. When I get older, I'll have to do more things to my face to keep it looking just like this.'

8  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Navy discharges black sailor for refusing to cut off her natural hair on: 22-08-2014 09:48PM

This week, the U.S Navy announced that it was discharging Jessica Sims, an Africa American woman who has been a sailor for 12-years, for failing to obey an order to cut off her natural hairstyle.
The military has been under scrutiny for guidelines issued in March that critics believe were discriminatory toward African-American women. Those regulations specifically forbid several hairstyles popular for black women who keep their hair natural, including twists, headbands, dreadlocks, or multiple braids that are larger than a quarter-inch. A former U.S. Army Major, sharply criticized the regulations, noting they targeted natural styles African American service women have been wearing for years. Continue..
Sims had been wearing her hair in the same way since 2005, without any apparent issues.
In response to the criticism, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel ordered the regulations to be relaxed earlier this month to allow female service members to have a wider range of hairstyles. But the Navy found that Sims hair still violated their guidelines.
Sims rejected repeated calls from the Navy to change her hair style, saying I dont think I should be told that I have to straighten my hair in order to be within what they think the regulations are, and I dont think I should have to cover it up with a wig.
The Navy said her hairstyle made it difficult for her to wear a gas mask. Sims said that her hair conformed to regulations requiring it protrude less than two inches from her head and that she never had a problem wearing safety helmets or gas masks.
After her discharge, Sims had no regrets: I still stand by it. I would do it again if I had to.

The skeleton of a baby that had been inside his mothers body for nearly four decades were removed by doctors in India.
Indian woman is thought to have had the worlds longest ectopic pregnancy after she became pregnant at the age of 24 and whose babys remains were discovered in her abdomen 36 years later

Kantabai Thakre is believedto have had the worlds longest ectopic pregnancy as she became pregnant in 1978 and whose babys remains were removed from her body 36 years later. When the expectant mother heard that a foetuswas growing outside of her womb and the operation needed she fled and sought treatment at a small clinic.

Months later when the pain subsided, Ms Thakre was convinced the problem had been treated. But when she turned 60 years, the woman started to experience constant pain in her abdomen. After being examined by doctors in a local hospita a mass made of hard, calcified matter was discovered.

After being examined by doctors in a local hospita a mass made of hard, calcified matter was discovered.
Dr Murtaza Akhtar, head of surgery at the hospital, said: She was complaining of consistent pain in her abdomen and she had urinary problems with high fever.Then we found a lump on her right side but we feared it was cancer.
After she went for an MRI and CT scan we could make out that it was actually a matured skeleton encapsulated in a calcified sac. The amniotic fluid that protects the foetus might have been absorbed and the soft tissues liquefied over time with only a bag of bones with some fluid remaining.

The team searched for medical literature on similar cases and found a Belgian woman who had retained the remains of an ectopic pregnancy for 18 years, the longest period they could find on record. The doctors believe this could be the longest case on record at 38 years.
