"If at first you don't succeed, slap on a bit more" Lucy Mangan on the power of make-up (Stylist)
During a clear out, I recently found a little boxful of my early teenage make-up. So many memories. So many terrible memories. Mainly of what a useless teenager I was. This stuff dates from the late Eighties and there isn't a single neon shade in here. I was wearing brown Marks & Spencer lipstick at 13, FFS. What hope was there, ever, for me? If I could meet my younger self, I'd slap her silly. So frightened, so timid, so unwilling to experiment or take a risk. NNYYYGGARRRGH!
Mary Jane "Mae" West (August 17, 1893 - November 22, 1980) was a mega-star American actress, singer, playwright, screenwriter, comedienne and sex symbol whose entertainment career spanned seven decades.
Known for her lighthearted bawdy double entendres, and breezy sexual independence, West made a name for herself in vaudeville and on the stage in New York City before moving to Hollywood to become a comedian, actress, and writer in the motion picture industry, as well as on radio and television. For her contributions to American cinema, the American Film Institute named West 15th among the greatest female stars of classic American cinema.
One of the more controversial movie stars of her day, West encountered many problems, especially censorship. She bucked the system, making comedy out of prudish conventional mores, and the Depression Era audience admired her for it. When her cinematic career ended, she wrote books, plays, and continued to perform in Las Vegas, in the United Kingdom, and on radio and television, and to record rock and roll albums. Asked about the various efforts to impede her career, West replied: "I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it." While true, she also suffered greatly because of it, even going to prison for her right to freedom of speech.

Oh Mae West, great sexual liberator, and one of the great wits of all time, cleared the way for women of all genders to embrace their sexuality and grace the world with more epic entertainers!

SyFy has the movie 'Deep Impact', followed by the movie 'GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra'.
Henry Heimlich, a 96-year-old surgeon credited with developing his namesake Heimlich maneuver, has used the emergency technique for the first time himself to save a woman choking on food at his senior living center.
Heimlich said he has demonstrated the well-known maneuver many times since he developed it in the 1970s but had never had performed it on anyone who was choking - until Monday.
"The whole thing was very moving to me," he said Friday. "I never thought that I would be saving someone's life by doing the Heimlich maneuver."
The retired chest surgeon was in the dining room at the Deupree House in Cincinnati, where he lives, when an 87-year-old woman began choking Monday night.
The dining room maître d', Perry Gaines, told The Cincinnati Enquirer that Heimlich dislodged a piece of hamburger from the woman's airway and she quickly recovered. In a video interview provided to The Enquirer, choking victim Patty Ris said she wrote a note to Heimlich that said, "God put me in this seat next to you."
At first blush, the secret support that the Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel provided for Hulk Hogan's lawsuit against Gawker is a salacious yarn about money, power, gossip and revenge.
But it is also about something more important: an aggressive bid by the very wealthy to control the American news media at a time when it is in a financially weakened state, struggling to maintain its footing on the electronic frontier's unstable terrain.
Speaking with Andrew Ross Sorkin of The New York Times on Wednesday, Mr. Thiel said he had financed the Hogan lawsuit - which resulted in a $140 million verdict against Gawker - not only because Gawker Media wrote in 2007, against his wishes, that he was gay, but also because he had determined the gossip site had too often operated with "no connection to the public interest."
His verdict rendered, Mr. Thiel had the resources to swap his judge's gavel for an executioner's sword. Should the $140 million verdict stand up to appeal, Gawker Media will most likely cease to exist as we know it. And if too much of Gawker survives, Mr. Thiel, with an estimated net worth of $2.7 billion, indicates he will keep financing anti-Gawker lawsuits to kill off whatever is left.
Mr. Thiel's campaign is in keeping with the pledge his favored candidate for president, Donald J. Trump, made to ease barriers to lawsuits against journalists. But it is actually the flip side of the media realm's new coin. Many of his fellow billionaires have gained control of news organizations by buying them or starting them.
A sunken, burned ship from the 1800s uncovered during a construction project in Boston's Seaport District is a rare and remarkable find, the city's archaeologist said.
City archaeologist Joe Bagley said Thursday it's the first time a shipwreck has been found in that section of the city and only the second one found on land that was filled in to expand the city's footprint. Also, unlike most other wrecks, its cargo is mostly intact, he said.
The vessel, which appears to be partially burnt, was uncovered last week during construction of a 17-story office building. The company working at the site, Skanska, halted construction so archaeologists could examine the ship.
The area was once mudflats that alternated between dry land and water based on the tides, so ships "kind of sailed right over" the property, Bagley said. In the late 1800s, that section of Boston Harbor was filled in. Now, it's home to office buildings, expensive condos and upscale restaurants.
Bagley said it appears the ship had a load of lime, which was used for masonry and construction. The lime would have been unusable after getting wet, so the cargo was left where it was, Bagley said. He called that fact "pretty remarkable," since at the time ships typically would have been completely scavenged of their valuables within days of being wrecked.
Image is everything in Dubai - even when fighting crime.
Police in this desert metropolis have built up a high-horsepower arsenal of luxury sports cars and SUVs over the years to complement their fleet of green-and-white patrol cruisers.
The high-end squad cars fit into the greater gearhead ethos of Dubai, where fire-engine red Ferraris growl at stoplights and convertible Rolls Royces prowl the boulevard ringing the world's tallest building. Lamborghinis also glisten through the glass of a massive new showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road, the country's longest thoroughfare that is a dozen lanes at its widest when cutting through Dubai.
These police cars don't see duty at traffic accidents or engage in high-speed pursuits, said Dubai police Lt. Saif Sultan Rashed al-Shamsi, who oversees the tourist police's patrol section.
Instead, al-Shamsi said the cars appear for special events across Dubai - or cruise areas frequented by tourists, offering visitors a glamorous image of the Dubai police.
Health experts on Friday urged the World Health Organization to consider whether the Rio de Janeiro Olympics should be postponed or moved because of the Zika outbreak.
The 150 experts - including former White House science adviser Dr. Philip Rubin - issued an open letter to the U.N. health agency, calling for the games to be delayed or relocated ''in the name of public health.''
The letter cited recent scientific evidence that the Zika virus causes severe birth defects, most notably babies born with abnormally small heads. In adults, it can cause neurological problems, including a rare syndrome that can be fatal or result in temporary paralysis. The authors also noted that despite increased efforts to wipe out the mosquitoes that spread Zika, infections in Rio have gone up rather than down.
Several public health academics have previously warned that having hundreds of thousands of people head to the Aug. 5-21 games in Brazil will inevitably lead to the births of more brain-damaged babies and speed up the virus' global spread. Most people infected by Zika suffer only minor symptoms including fever, a rash and muscle or joint pain.
WHO declared the Zika epidemic to be a global emergency in February and in its latest assessment this week, said it ''does not see an overall decline in the outbreak.''
All references to Australia were removed from a UN report on climate change and World Heritage sites after objections from Canberra, in a move scientists and activists Friday called "extremely disturbing".
The study, World Heritage and Tourism in a Changing Climate, was jointly published Thursday by UNESCO, the Union of Concerned Scientists and the United Nations Environmental Programme.
It profiles the impacts of climate change on major tourism drawcards including the Statue of Liberty, Venice and Stonehenge, listing 31 vulnerable sites in 29 countries.
Initially it contained a chapter on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, which is suffering its worst bleaching in recorded history, and sections on Kakadu National Park and the Tasmanian Wilderness, scientists said.
But when the Australian Department of Environment saw a draft, it objected and every mention of Australia was removed.
Republican U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch wrote in an opinion piece published on Thursday that his meeting with Merrick Garland failed to change his view that the Senate should not act on President Barack Obama's U.S. Supreme Court nominee.
The problem is that no such meeting had yet taken place. Later in the day, the Utah senator issued a statement announcing that he would meet with Garland on Thursday, calling the appeals court judge "an honorable public servant who deserves our respect" but reiterating that the Senate should not act now.
Paul Edwards, executive editor of the Deseret News in Hatch's home state of Utah, said by email the article was a draft that was mistakenly published on newspaper's website, and apologized to Hatch and the newspaper's readers for "this unfortunate error."
"Like many of my Senate colleagues, I recently met with Chief Judge Merrick Garland," Hatch wrote in the piece.
"Our meeting, however, does not change my conviction that the Senate should consider a Supreme Court nominee after this presidential election cycle," Hatch added.

On Wednesday, Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo sent an email to a Republican National Committee staffer, cc'ing campaign spokesperson Hope Hicks. The request: "Work up information on HRC/Whitewater as soon as possible. This is for immediate use and for the afternoon talking points process."
Hicks then sent a response to Caputo, but addressed her email to Marc Caputo, a Florida-based reporter at Politico who has been covering Trump for years. Marc Caputo then wrote the story up and published it under the headline, "Trump plans to target Clinton over Whitewater."
So Whitewater - the somewhat complicated 1990s scandal involving the Clintons' 1970s real estate investment - is the latest vintage Clinton scandal to be back in the news.
In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Trump brought up Whitewater, Vince Foster's death and Benghazi: "It's the one thing with her, whether it's Whitewater or whether it's Vince or whether it's Benghazi. It's always a mess with Hillary," he said.
