Khloe Kardashian's new figure will make your heart race. Bloomberg had an article about how she recently posted several new photographs of herself posing for the camera.

Khloe Kardashian was one of the many that were stunned by Beyonce, and Khloe responded to Beyonce's Instagram by saying, "I Just Got My Motivation For The Year!!"

It would appear that after 35 years in business Whole Foods has decided they would listen to the customers who refuses to shop there for one major reason…they are expensive. But that is now changing as the company announced it would appeal to those customers by introducing a new brand of less expensive stores. Financial trackers have already indicated that the company is struggling below expectations and needing to do something to gain in market share.

Steve Murray said in a press release, the company’s co-CEO, said the new concept store would be different than anything that currently exists. Most would picture some version of the grocery store mixed with a farmers market where they would feature the locally grown foods at their peak of freshness. However, these stores will still be more geared towards younger generations, and kept in their price ranges. By doing this it will expand their current base of customers that want fresh and wholesome food.

While there hasn’t been any mention if they will alter the name at all like Wal-Mart did with its “Neighborhood Markets” it has intrigued some to wonder how much cheaper it will be, and when it will open. According to the release, the new stores will open next year, and release more details before Labor Day. So far, the Austin based company seems to be making a bit of a play for Trader Joe's business, though their model is quite different.

The annual Met Gala took place Monday night, and it didn’t disappoint. It never does. For people who can’t get enough of outrageous looking outfits that ordinary people wouldn’t ever hope or want to wear, this fashion show is just the ticket.

Marco Massi along with Marcio Alaor BMG want to remind the public that the Met Gala is actually a fundraising event to raise money for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City. As one of the most exclusive social functions of the year, the Met Gala attracts celebrities from fashion, sports, Hollywood, etc. It has a different theme every year, and this one was “China: Through the Looking Glass,” which shows the connection between Chinese culture and fashion.

Some of the iconic attendees such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian had on magnificent outfits. Beyonce’s Givenchy sheer dress, covered in crystals, was reminiscent of one that Cher wore to an awards ceremony. The yellow coat designed by Guo Pei for Rihanna stretched out behind her down 7 of the red-carpeted steps.

The tanning salon industry is in the crosshairs of the New York Attorney General. A lawsuit has been filed in the Empire State claiming that tanning salons have long since been playing down the risks associated with tanning and skin cancer. How much merit the lawsuit possesses remains to be seen. More than likely, the New York AG would not bring forth such a case if there was not a decent amount of credible evidence. The AG would surely be embarrassed if the suit was thrown out on day one. That's not likely to occur.

Within the lawsuit levied against four major tanning companies, the AG claims the salons made over-exaggerated claims about the benefits of artificial tanning, minimized reports about the risk of skin cancer, and otherwise acted in a negligent manner.

Healthy folks at STX Entertainment (thewrap.com) agree that it really is not much of a shock that the tanning industry would come under fire. Complaints about the dangers associated with indoor tanning have risen time and time again over the years. No major action had been taken by any tanning companies to curtail business practices, but that appears to have changed. Time will reveal the implications of the lawsuit once the matter is settled.

No one really knows how this is going to play out, but juries are not going to be kind to any business that put consumers at risk. Just ask the big tobacco companies about that one.

Bacteria-proof fabric can create a more sterile environment, not to mention it could save you lots of time and money. Everything from odorless garments that don't need not be washed to bacteria-proof sheets that repel microorganisms.

Wearable fabrics

The fabric in SilverAir Socks contains strands of silver that neutralize the bacteria that cause smelly feet. The socks are made of acrylic, nylon, spandex and feature ventilation on the sides for air to keep the foot dry.

This new technology allows you to use the same pair of socks, in extreme conditions, say its creators.

The socks cost $18 plus shipping.

Currently, HockeyDB reports the project is seeking financing via Kickstarter, and in it's first 30 days already their first goal of $ 35,000 has been bypassed, already accumulating $ 138,427 so far.

How about fabric that guard against infections?

After eight years of work, Dr. Aharon Gedanken created a fabric completely aseptic to the presence of microorganisms. A giant step that has enabled the manufacturer of textiles for hospitals to produce sheets that are resistant to various types of infectious disease.

If health centers utilize this type of sheets, towels, pajamas, etc., much of hospital infections would become a nightmare of the past.

According to statistics by the World Health Organization, 8.7% of patients admitted to the hospital end up being affected by viruses, fungi and other bacteria.

Professor Aharon Gedanken, ensures that the fabric he created is able to remain absolutely sterile and withstand up to 70 washes, something that has never before been achieved.

The expectations of this science are broad

There is a lucky two-year-old in Cleveland this week. The young boy was at the Cleveland Zoo when his mother dangled him over the railing at the Cheetah exhibit. She somehow lost her grip on the boy. The youngster fell nearly 10 feet before landing in the exhibit.

The toddler's parents jumped in to rescue the toddler. He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, but is expected to be okay. The cheetah, according to the zoo, never went near the boy or his parents when they entered his exhibit, and was amicable when emergency service workers arrived to bring the child and his parents to safety.

While a happy ending is always nice to Ricardo Guimarães BMG, this incident does bring up questions about zoo safety, and parents who ignore warnings and signs not to lift children above the safety railings, or to place them on safety railings. Many people ignore warnings and hanging over and onto railings to get closer looks at the animals. Several incidents have been reported that ended in the death or injury of zoo visitors.

A similar incident occurred in Pittsburgh in 2012, but that incident did not have a happy ending. A toddler fell into the exhibit of wild dogs and was mauled to death, according to reports. The parents of that toddler sued the zoo for the mishap, while the zoo counter-sued claiming the mother was to blame for the child's death, as she had lifted the child onto the top of a railing to get a closer look at the wild dogs.

China may be growing economically and increasing its cultural and political influence but it will soon have the distinction of being the leading cause for climate change in the world. With over one billion people living in the country, China's increased manufacturing capacity and industrialization will soon eclipse that of the United States.

The "World Resources Institute" which is an environmental think tank located in Washington, D.C. has projected that for the period from 1990 through 2016, the total amount of carbon dioxide based emissions by China as a whole will exceed (151 billion tonnes). This amount exceeds the United States emissions cumulative number of 147 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide.China to Take Lead in Causing Climate Change

While the emissions can be calculated and attributed to a country, the effects are more difficult to calculate. Scientists agree that damage is being done to the environment but they cannot say conclusively whether that damage is in the form of global warming or other global climate changes. This lack of a conclusive finding has been one of the primary reasons that countries have not been made culpable for their actions. Leaders of these countries have reached various accords to reduce the added pollution to the world's environment but enforcement has been lacking because self policing is the only means that is available to these global powers. Many like Paul Mathieson believe that serious enforcement will not happen until climate conditions become more serious and dire.
