Comments are off for this post.
Kristina Schulman had a very dramatic journey on the recently-ended season of  America watched her strike up what appeared to be a solid courtship with fan-favorite Dean, only to get entangled in a love triangle when he started to explore things with D-Lo. It all resulted in her exiting the show before giving out a rose, after giving an impassioned speech about wanting to be respected in her next relationship. It was a “you tell ’em” moment that made us want to blast Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” at full volume, but also had Bachelor Nation immediately thinking, will Kristina be ? Well, here’s some hope. Kristina’s […]

The teeth were placed with a margin of error of 0.2-0.3 millimeters, which is the required standard for this kind of operation. Developing the system took four years, and it’s the joint work of the Fourth Military Medical […]

Astronauts on long-term missions might have to face off many dangers and some of those might be coming from Earth.

Coli to the International Space Station to be treated with different concentrations of gentamicin sulfate, an antibiotic that easily kills the bacteria on Earth. The team discovered at the end of the experiment there were 13 times more E. Coli in the space cultures compared to the Earth-bound control […]

Here he talks blueberries, boredom and Balenciaga A hot, sticky June evening in Paris and model Dries Van Noten catwalk. Not Hameline, though.
