For decades, photo manipulation software has been whittling the waists and thinning the thighs of celebrities and models, and the AMA says it’s caused unrealistic and unhealthy body image issues — especially among children and adolescents.
The technologically-savvy Pope Benedict XVI has already encouraged priests to blog and helmed the launch of the Vatican’s YouTube channel and Pope2You mobile and Facebook apps. So it’s really no surprise that as part of his newly-launched news portal, the pontiff sent his first tweet recently — from the papal iPad.
After several prior failed attempts to challenge social media behemoth Facebook, Google introduced a new service on Tuesday that it hopes will finally do the trick.
Called the Google+ project, it’s currently only available to a select group of Google users — they’ll soon be able to invite others — and it will let people share and discuss status updates, photos and links, just like they do on Facebook.
But there’s one key difference: Google+ allows you to share with select groups — like co-workers, friends or the moms in your child’s playgroup — instead of with everyone. It features what it calls “circles,” which are small groups of friends based on how you know them. Google+ also offers group text messaging and video chat.
Cats are widely known for their hatred of water — in fact, the most trusty tool for kitty discipline is often a simple squirt-bottle. So it’s not every day you see one willingly taking a swim.

The good people at New Friends of Bushy Beach (NFOBB) in New Zealand care for and rehabilitate sick and injured penguins. When they took a yellow-eyed penguin named Jay under their wing, his foot was injured so badly they weren’t sure he’d even survive.
We’re happy to report Jay is up and waddling around again. Watch as he takes his first few steps (and try not to squeal too loudly).

This amazing little piece of split screen filmmaking, shot entirely with a Nokia N8 and winner of the Nokia Shorts Competition 2011, depicts the parallel lives of a man and a woman from different parts of the world who finally meet cute when their side of the frame syncs up.
For about a decade, airlines and academics have tried to figure out the fastest way to load passengers onto a plane. The less time spent on boarding, the more revenue-generating flights airlines can squeeze into a day.
