Men might now be able to get pregnant

According to one of the world’s leading fertility professor, men could start getting pregnant any day now – thanks to womb transplant developments, reports The Independent. First pregnant man in Britain gives birth to a girl Dr Richard Paulson, outgoing president of American Society for Reproductive Medicine said that with advancements in science, it is possible to now allow similar operations to be carried out on those who started their lives as men. He also mentioned that people who have gone under sex-change operations may want to avail this opportunity which would allow them to conceive a baby. He further explained that there was not anatomical reason why a womb can’t be successfully implanted in a transgender woman. He added that men and women may have different shaped pelvis but both have room for an implanted womb. PHOTO: THE INDEPENDENT The process would however, be highly complicated and transgender women will have to deliver through caesarean. Moreover, hormones will have to be injected to replicate the changes that take place while a woman is pregnant. Transgender man in US gives birth to baby boy Despite advancements, the womb transplant is still an experimental procedure. Many British experts warn that pregnancy in transgender women can be deemed unethical as it could pose risk to the fetus. While carrying a baby may give psychological benefit to the mother, it needs to be “weighed against any psychological harm to the child being born in this atypical way,” said Julian Savulescu, professor of practical [Read More…]

Here’s how you can calculate if you have a ‘mathematically beautiful’ face

Having a heart-shaped face like the Legally Blonde star, Reese Witherspoon, classifies as being ‘mathematically beautiful’, reported by Daily Mail. Scientists at the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia were able to measure the facial proportions. If your cheekbones are as wide as your eyebrows, your face is most desirable said researchers who came up with this conclusion after inspecting facial measurements from photos of 55 beautiful female models. PHOTO: DAILY MAIL Dr Allan Wulc, the senior author of the study, selected these photos by typing in ‘beautiful young woman not smiling.’ The study also revealed that the distance between the eyes to be exactly 59.2mm, whereas the vertical distance between your eyes and your cheekbones should be 13.1mm, if you want to be classified as an attractive individual. These figures add-up to a heart-shaped face which helps surgeons craft perfect looks using facelifts and fillers. Are Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman not on talking terms? WIZDOM, a measuring system used by researchers, which stands for ‘Width of the Interzygomatic Distance of the Midface’ led by Dr Gary Linkov, determines the horizontal distance between the most prominent point of each cheek bone. Nevertheless, this can be maneuvered by the help of ‘highlighter makeup and blush.’ This horizontal distance was then set as basis to calculate the ideal distance to other parts of the face, for the study that was published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal.

There are two camps when it comes to choosing seats on planes: the window seat people and the aisle people. There are no middle seat people. They do not exist. But does the type of seat that you prefer to sit in have any meaning other than personal preference? Well, according to psychologists and Telegraph Travel, the seat you pick could indicate more about you than you think, reports Cosmopolitan. The theory goes that the people who pick the aisle seat want to be able to easily walk around the plane, nip to the loo or stretch out their legs whenever they want to. Additionally, these seats mean you don’t have to wake anyone up or disturb them if you need to get up. The people who pick them would much rather be woken up, than do the waking. Window seat people, on the other hand “like to be in control, tend to take an ‘every man for themselves’ attitude towards life, and are often more easily irritable,” Dr Becky Spelman, chief psychologist at Harley Street’s Private Therapy Clinic told Telegraph Travel. “Champions of the window seat tend to be more selfish, as well as less anxious, seasoned flyers who are more confident in disturbing others,” behavioural psychologist Jo Hemmings told Telegraph Travel. “Aisle passe Have something to add to the story?

The hashtag #RespectHarry has gained popularity since footage emerged on Sunday by fans that stood in the front row of a breast cancer awareness concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday night. I woke up to #RespectHarry trending and found this. I’m so disgusted. When are y’all gonna learn how to respect someone properly? pic.twitter.com/MwVuxKchN5 — robyn (@hsfamilyshow) October 22, 2017 Styles fans were swift to share and decry the footage, accusing the anonymous perpetrator of “sexual assault” and calling LA fans’ behaviour “vile” and “absolutely disgusting”.
