Jewel Shuping, a 30-year-old from North Carolina USA has dreamt of being blind since she was a child. She has been able to fufill this great desire through the help of an (unknown) psychologist who agreed to have drain cleaner poured into her eyes in order to fully blind her.
After putting in numbing eyedrops,the psychologist added a couple of drops of drain cleaner in her eyes.
Jewel’s believes that she was supposed to have been born blind. Her Fiance is also blind,although he is blind due to Natural causes.
Though she did not immediately go blind after the help of the Psychologist, her vision did eventually deteriorate till she completely lost her vision.
At first she told her family that her blindness has been the result of an accident, family members found out the truth in the long run which led to her mother and her sister to cutting contact with her.
Jewel has been diagnosed by experts with a condition called Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID).
Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID) is a disorder when the person believes that they are meant to be disabled.
According to Daily mail,she reported said;
“My mother would find me walking in the halls at night, when I was three or four years old,” she said. “By the time I was six I remember that thinking about being blind made me feel comfortable.”
She further stated that as a child, she would spend hours staring at the sun after her mother informed her that doing so would damage her eyes. Her fascination with the disability continued until she reached adulthood, with her getting a cane when she turned 18 and becoming fully fluent in Braille by the time she was 20, reports The Mirror.
This is one seriously determined person I must say.
My only question is this ,why would any one do this? Or want this?
Dear readers,early detection is the best defense against Breast Cancer.
Breast cancer ranks second among
cancer deaths in women. When breast
cancer is detected early, the five-year
survival rate is greater than 95
Anything that increases your chance
of getting cancer is a risk factor.
Anything that decreases your chance
of developing cancer is cancer
Some of the Risk Factors are:
• Being female is the greatest risk factor
• Women older than 40
• Women older than 35 whose mother
or sister has had breast or ovarian
cancer or father had prostate cancer
• Women who have never been
pregnant or who first become
pregnant after age 30
• Women who have had cancer in one
breast or atypical ductal hyperplasia
• Women who started menstruation
before age 12 or menopause at age 55
• Women who are obese with excessive
caloric and fat intake
If you want to self-assess
•A change in the feel or look of the
• A change in the size or shape of the
• A lump or thickening in or near the
breast or in the underarm area.
• A warm sensation in the breast
A change in the feel or look of the
• A retraction of the nipple
• A discharge from the nipple(i.e Blood or fluid other than breast milk secreted from the nipple)
• A rash on the nipple or areola
• Nipple tenderness, increased
sensitivity or pain
• A change in the feel or look of the skin
of the breast, areola or nipple
• Dimpling of the skin on the breast
(like the skin of an orange)
• The appearance of irritated, red, scaly or swollen skin on the breast, nipple or areola
• Breast pain. (though breast pain is usually associated with benign breast disease rather than breast cancer, it can be a symptom of either condition.
Monthly breast self-exams along with
mammography at recommended
intervals are essential for early
detection of breast cancer. Not sure
about how to do a breast exam? Refer
to the following examination guidelines.
– Step One … in the shower
Stand in the shower and with fingers
flat (use the pad of your fingers)
move your hand gently over every part
of each breast. Check for a lump, knot
or thickening. Use right hand for left
breast, left hand for right breast.
-Step Two … in front of a mirror
With your hands at your sides, visually
check for lumps and depressions.
Then, placing your palms on your hips,
press down firmly, flex your chest
muscles and check again. Don’t worry
if your breasts don’t match.
-Step Three … in front of a mirror
Now raise your arms overhead. Look
for changes in the contour of each
breast as well as swelling or dimpling
of the skin and changes in the nipple.
-Step Four … lying down
To examine your right breast, place a
pillow or folded towel under your right
shoulder and, with elbow bent, lay your
right hand on your forehead. Do the
same procedure for the other side.
-Step Five … lying down
With fingers flat, use your left hand
to press an imaginary clock face on
your right breast. Check for lumps or
depressions. A ridge of firm tissue in
the lower ridge is normal. Move in an
inch toward the nipple and make the
same circling motion again and again
until you reach the center. Repeat with
right hand, left breast.
-Step Six … lying down
Gently squeeze the nipple of each
breast. Check for any unusual
discharge, clear or bloody. Report any
lumps, thickening or discharge you
discover during this examination to
your doctor immediately.

Xu Qing 29-year-old, from Beijing, moved back to parents’ house after dropping out of university,after insisting he did not get on with his roommates.
He refused to get a job and spends all his time online
He met a girl online,also jobless, who eventually moved in with him. His parents fed up with his attitude and behavior asked Xu Qing and his “girlfriend” to either get a job or move out.
His father Ku arranged for him to have a job at a friend’s company, he walked out announcing that it was too boring.
When he refused to get a job and didn’t move out,his parents applied in court to get him to move out.
They court ruled in favour of the parents that although Qing was their son, at the age of 29 they had no more obligation to support him and that as it was their house they could also force him to move out.
When he and his girlfriend refused to follow the court’s 60 day deadline, the couple applied for an eviction notice to have bailiffs remove their son, his girlfriend and their property.
Honestly I think its unfortunate and such a shame that the parents are stuck with a son like this.
—-These are some of the comments by Internet users in China.
‘Having this kind of son is really pathetic. Just keep it in mind: Don’t spoil kids,’ one user said.
Another commented: ‘It’s just a mirror of today’s education.’
‘The parents have brought up such a spoiled prince,’ one web user added.
‘They actually asked for it!’

The wait is over! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan walked the Red Carpet for the Film Deux Jours, Une Nuit (Two Days, One Night) premiere during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival this evening May 20th in Cannes, France.
I can’t begin to express how pleased I am to see her walk the red carpet. She looks drop-dead gorgeous in this stunning Roberto Cavalli gold embellished gown. I also love her hair and makeup. This definitely her best Cannes look. It was worth the wait!
Interestingly this same dress was worn by Kristin Chenoweth to the Oscars,but I didn’t capture me this way on Oscar night. You really can’t compare though, this dress looks like it was made for Aishwarya’s figure.
This post is dedicated to her because she is worth it. *wink*
Face of Gucci Blake Lively has wowed me since she arrived at Cannes.
So far so good,everything gown Blake Lively has worn on the Red Carpet at Cannes has been truly glamorous and just what i had like and hoped to see .
Take a look at all her gowns so far:
At the opening ceremony on wednesday afternoon she wore this beautiful Burgundy Gucci Gown,Casadei shoes, Lorraine Schwartz jewellery.
She didn’t stop there,Blake wore this incredible Channel Couture gown and Sophia Webster shoes at the Mr. Turner premiere on Thursday,that took my breath away.
Did you notice that the dress also has pockets on the sides.
Later ,for an appearance on the Le Grand Journal TV show she showed up in a short floral Giambattista Valli Haute Couture mini dress and Stuart Weitzman sandals.
How does she always manage to look so good?
My favourite gown from her just has to be the strapless, black and white Gucci gown. It was like she was channelling Grace Kelly.
There is a toilet-theme cafe in L.A called the Magic Restroom Cafe Owned by a lady named YoYo Li.
According to her,she decided to open a cafe like this after noticing how popular the “Modern Toilet
restaurant chain” was in China and Taiwan.
Here,very thing from the food to the seats are toilet like. Your order is served in miniature toilet bowls.
On the menu,you will find things like “golden poop rice,”“black poop” which is actually a chocolate sundae, “smells-like-poop” which is braised pork over rice, and “bloody number two” which is vanilla-strawberry sundae .
So far so good,according to reports the Cafe is getting good reviews. However the decor is getting better reviews than the food.
