By Alison Bowen Chicago Tribune Wed., Feb. 6, 2019 After her fourth child, Lisa Wilkie felt open to getting a little cosmetic work done. Feeling the toll having children had taken on her body, she made an appointment to discuss breast augmentation. After that procedure in 2017, Wilkie, 34, also began Botox, an appointment she’s made every 12 weeks for about two years. “You just want to feel good,” she said. “Now it’s part of my routine.” Millennials are showing up in plastic surgeons’ offices for a variety of procedures. Some request surgery. But many want “prejuvenation,” or what the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery describes as non-invasive treatments like Botox or chemical peels that aim to slow the results of aging, rather than correct them. In survey results released Jan. 23, 72 per cent of 110 of the group’s members surveyed reported an increase in cosmetic surgery or … [Read more...] about Why millennial women are seeking out plastic surgeons

George Hunter The Detroit News Published 12:01 AM EST Feb 4, 2019 Detroit — Tina Wright says she doesn't feel safe in her west side neighborhood, despite police department statistics that show crime is going down in Detroit. "It seems the same to me — still dangerous," said Wright, 50. "I stay in the house, so I'm not trying to see any crime. I hear it, though, especially behind me; those people are shooting all the time. If someone's saying the city's safer, it don't look that way to me." Wright's opinion is echoed throughout Detroit's neighborhoods and on social media by people who refuse to believe the positive numbers released by Detroit police because they say the city still is crime-ridden. Others, however, say they have noticed a change, insisting there isn't as much crime in their neighborhoods. Detroit police announced homicides in 2018 had dipped to 261, the lowest number in 50 years, and the third straight year the city recorded the fewest … [Read more...] about Despite positive crime stats, some Detroit residents don’t feel safe
Updated 2:50 pm PST, Sunday, January 20, 2019 In this Dec. 21, 2018 photo, Parker Alley, 7, flies a at Four Winds-Cuatro Vientos Park, in the Westwood neighborhood in Denver. Large areas of Denver overhauled to sustain an exploding population now are so built up and paved over that residents rapidly are losing contact with nature. Excluding the undeveloped area around the airport, nearly half the land in Denver's city limits is now paved or built over — up from less than 20 percent in the mid-1970s, a Denver Post analysis of city and federal data found. And that figure could approach 70 percent by 2040.

Transformation of the global food system is urgently needed as more than 3 billion people are malnourished (including people who are undernourished and overnourished), and food production is exceeding planetary boundaries -- driving climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution due to over-application of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers, and unsustainable changes in water and land use. The daily dietary pattern of a planetary health diet consists of approximately 35% of calories as whole grains and tubers, protein sources mainly from plants -- but including approximately 14g of red meat per day -- and 500g per day of vegetables and fruits. Moving to this new dietary pattern will require global consumption of foods such as red meat and sugar to decrease by about 50%, while consumption of nuts, fruits, vegetables, and legumes must double. Unhealthy diets are the leading cause of ill-health worldwide and following the diet could avoid approximately 11 million premature deaths per … [Read more...] about Diet and food production must radically change to save planet
