If You’re Sitting All Day At Work You May Suffer From “Office Ass”
Those who sit at a desk for eight or more hours a day are prone to hypertension, heart attacks, depression, and, worst of all, the New York Post reports, "office ass," the slow but continual flattening of one's ass as she sits at her desk all day. Physical therapist Abby Bales confirmed to the Post the longer you sit on your butt without moving, the more likely it is you'll have "a difficult time actively engaging [your] glutes to both strengthen and shape them," which means the effects of your lunges could be canceled out by sitting at work: "The more you sit, the more you have the chance of developing a flatter booty."

Rat Ate Former Soccer Star’s Foot While He Was Sleeping
Former English soccer star Gary Mabbutt had a rude awakening one morning during his recent trip to South Africa. According to him, a rat managed to chow down on his foot while he was sleeping.
Mabbutt explains that the incident occurred after he had gone to bed for the night while visiting his daughter, who works at Kruger National Park. His daughter was actually the first victim of the hungry rat, who had bitten her thumb. Once she ran to tell her dad, he looked down to discover his foot covered in blood. “It made quite a big hold in my toe, going down to the bone,” he says.
Why didn’t he feel it? Mabbutt, who has Type One diabetes, goes on to explain that he hardly has any feeling left in his feet. After the incident, he flew back to the United Kingdom for surgery, spending a week in the hospital to recover.

Something old, something new: Survey says wedding traditions dying off
The concept of a traditional wedding is changing with the times, according to a UK-based surveyconducted by jewelers F.Hinds.
The company found out which traditions people in various age groups found important, and which were fading away.
For example, just 36% of people polled thought it was still important for a bride to take her husband's name; just 37% thought wedding rings were a must.
Twenty-four percent of those polled said a traditional white wedding dress is a must -- with six percent of brides saying they wore a suit to their own wedding. Nine percent of those polled in the nationwide survey say wedding favors are a "must," with 10% expressing that the tradition of having a bride's family pay for the reception is still important.
Other traditions that are fading? The traditional bachelor or bachelorette blowout -- just 19% say it's important. Twenty-two percent said the one proposing has to take a knee to do so, while 10% said they had a best woman instead of a best man -- or picked best MEN to take up seats at the head table.
Some traditions are dying hard, however:
A majority, 59% say it's essential to have a father walk his daughter down the aisle; 46% called picking a best man and bridesmaids important.
Not surprisingly, however, the younger the survey respondent, the less important the daddy daughter walk is; just 50% of those aged 25-34 said it's important -- compared to more than 75% of those aged 65+.
