Vaccines are a vital part of our American health system. But what do they actually do in the body? An expert breaks down the secret of these antibody makers.
A 1994 study, conducted by psychology professor Jan J.F. van Rooij, may suggest as much. In a nutshell, the study tested whether people born under “positive” Zodiac signs (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius — aka all fire and air signs) were more extroverted while people born under “negative” signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces — all the earth and water signs) were more introverted. Make what you will of the suggestion that fire and air signs are more extroverted while earth and water signs are more introverted (we'd argue that the extent of someone's extroversion is a little more nuanced than that), but this characterization is generally accepted in the astro community, with obvious exceptions — let's never forget that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a supposedly introverted Taurus.

It was a topless protest like no other: A determined woman marching through Cleveland, Ohio, not only without a shirt, but without breasts. Kim Bowles, a Pittsburgh scientist and mother of two, had undergone a double mastectomy following stage-3 cancer treatment in 2017, and had chosen to “go flat” — opting out of the complex breast reconstruction surgery that follows the majority of mastectomies. But instead, she says, her Cleveland Clinic surgeon blatantly ignored her wishes, leaving extra flaps and pouches of skin on her chest in case she were to “change her mind” in the future.
