[Warning: Graphic content ahead.] I have to admit, I mostly avoid the Dr. Pimple Popper Instagram page at all costs. My mind, body, and soul can't deal with the extractions that are basically surgical procedures. As soon as I see a scalpel or blood, I'm out. However, I can deal with the blackhead ones. Sandra Lee, the Southern California-based cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist behind the account, posted a quick video of one of the absolute gnarly blackhead extractions I've ever seen. I'm unclear if people still use the word "gnarly" anymore, but it's the most applicable word for this.

A mom has told how she was left feeling “hideous” after a bride she considered a friend airbrushed her out of her wedding photos. The experience left Julie Warren so devastated she hasn’t had her picture taken for 10 years.

She told the Mirror Online: “She ordered really fancy handmade invites, in the form of
A husband and wife with three young kids have both been diagnosed with terminal cancer and been told they have just months to live. Ed and Karen Stewart were given the devastating news within weeks of each other and are now trying to savor their remaining time with their children. The couple, from Dublin, Ireland, have also urged other parents to go straight to the doctor if they are feeling unwell and to make as many memories as possible with their families. Karen, 36, had previously beaten neuroblastoma but was told earlier this year it had returned 16 years on from her original diagnosis. Husband Ed, 42, was then told in May that he had terminal pancreatic cancer. Friends have now launched

My wife had developed gestational diabetes, which required weekly checkups where nurses could monitor our baby’s heartbeat for hours at a time, as well as regular consultations regarding her diet and caloric intake, so any potential harmful effects of the disease would be minimized. One minute, my brain is flooding with endorphins and tears are streaming down my face as I’m staring in awe at this perfect, tiny little person, the culmination of this incredible 9-month journey; the next, a nurse notices something’s not right, snatches him away urgently, a loud klaxon starts going off, the room starts filling up with more nurses and doctors, who I notice are exchanging serious, concerned looks with one another, no one is answering our questions-it was horrifying.
The New York Times is facing blowback on social media after publishing an essay by an African-American reporter who accused white women of racism for not ceding space on city sidewalks to black men. In a Wednesday essay titled "Was That Racist," reporter Greg Howard singled out white women for forcing him "off the sidewalk completely" when walking towards him, not allowing a straight path. "In seven years of living and walking here, I’ve found that most people walk courteously - but that white women, at least when I’m in their path, do not," Howard writes. "Sometimes they’re buried in their phones. Other times, they’re in pairs and groups, and in conversation. But often, they’re looking ahead,
