1.) It may sound too good to be true, but there’s a magazine with a very strict “no photoshop” policy. Verily is a fashion and lifestyle magazine that targets women age 18 to 35. And even though it would seem that is the prime demographic when it comes to Photoshop use, this magazine is hoping to at least begin reversing the trend. Verily never alters the body or face structure of their models. The magazine intends to celebrate real women, whose “crows feet, freckles, or less-than-rock-hard body, are aspects that contribute to their beauty and should be celebrated — not shamed, changed or removed.”
2.) If you’ve ever thought you were addicted to Oreos, you truly may be. Researchers at Connecticut College have found, at least for lab rats, Oreos are addictive as cocaine. Their study discovered that eating the sugary treats activated more neurons in the brain’s “pleasure center” than drugs such as cocaine. And, just like most people, the labs rats would eat the creamy center first.
3.) You may never have to drink alone again … at least if you have a cat. B&H Life, a Japanese company has created “Nyan Nyan Nouveau,” a wine specifically made for cats. Roughly translated “Nyan Nyan” means “meow meow” in Japanese. This cat wine doesn’t really contain any alcohol, but it does contain juice made from Cabernet grapes, along with catnip. Nyan Nyan Nouveau costs about $4 a bottle, but is only available in Japan … and the company is only producing a thousand bottles of the feline libation.
