After suffering hair breakage from wearing a hat while traveling, Grace Eleyae, chief executive officer and co-founder of the original Slap (Satin-Lined Cap), decided enough was enough. Instead of complaining, she got creative. "There has to be something that is stylish enough to go out in, but protective enough to wear to bed," Eleyae told "Good Morning America" she thought to herself after her frustrating hair loss experience. From there, Eleyae went on a six-month journey in 2013 seeking a different way to incorporate satin into more stylish headpieces. By 2014, "in a moment of divine inspiration," Eleyae added the final touches on the idea of the Slap. "I sewed the first prototype myself," she said. Now, celebrities such as actresses Gabrielle Union and Viola Davis as well as comedian and television host Loni Love are also fans of the brand.

Boris Johnson said seeing a "bunch of black kids" used to make him "turn a hair" and run away in a little-known column opposing anti-racism reforms after Stephen Lawrence's murder. The Tory leader was branded "fundamentally racist" by a veteran QC over the 19-year-old remarks - which admitted he "prejudged" that black youths in the park could mug him. In the column he said the "tiny fit of prejudice" was "disgraceful" and "disgusting", but claimed it was "as natural as sewage". The then-journalist wrote: "If that is racial prejudice, then I am guilty. And so are you, baby. So are we all." The column, which was buried deep in a 2000 edition of The Guardian, has been largely forgotten since Mr Johnson entered 10 Downing Street. That is despite other writings from the same era being well-known - including branding gay men "tank-topped bum boys" and black people "piccanninies". In the column, Johnson - who was editor of the Spectator at the time - went on to rail against reforms in the … [Read more...] about Boris Johnson said ‘bunch of black kids’ made him ‘turn a hair’ in old column

A newly developed drug shows promise in treating the most aggressive form of thyroid cancer, according to a new study.About 5 percent of thyroid cancer patients have a very aggressive form of the cancer which spreads to other organs, such as the lungs, and can be fatal. Because these tumors cannot usually be treated effectively with surgery or radioactive iodine, patients often have no choice but to be treated with chemotherapy, which is not very effective.In the new study, 37 patients with aggressive thyroid cancer took a drug called pazopanib every day. In nearly half of the patients, the size of their tumor decreased by at least 30 percent, said study author Dr. Julian Molina, an oncologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.On average, patients were able to take pazopanib for about a year before their cancer started growing again."For a disease for which we did not have any effective treatment, in which the treatments were vey toxic, we were able to find that this drug pazopanib … [Read more...] about Aggressive Thyroid Cancer Responds Well to New Drug
