Bill Cosby has been surrounded by rape allegations for years, and they're back with a vengeance.

Last week, one of his alleged victims Barbara Bowman wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was strongly titled: Bill Cosby raped. Why did it take 30 years for people to believe my story

Following that emotional piece, his November 19th appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman has been cancelled, though it's not clear which party did the canceling. Regis Philbin will be taking his place.

Cosby also cancelled his recent appearance on The Queen Latifah Show, and in a recent NPR interview, he and his wife Camille

Baby got back AND higher self-esteem!

A nationwide study has found that heavier set African American women are actually happier with their bodies than most average-sized or thin Caucasian women.

The survey by the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation interviewed 800 women across the country to discover 66% of overweight or obese black women had high self-esteem, while only 41% of skinny white women could say the same!

Although they love their curves, 90% African American women revealed in the survey that they thought living a healthy lifestyle is more important that religion, career and marriage. 28% were also more likely to insist that being physically attractive is "very important", while only 11% of white women could say the same.

The average Caucasian participant was more likely to agree that being physically attractive is only "somewhat important."

Do U think these findings are actually representative of all black and white women across the United States?

Controversy Surrounds New Organ Donor Guidelines

Filed under: Medicine

Donate life

The United Network for Organ Sharing, the nonprofit organization that coordinates organ donation under a contract with the federal government, has proposed "controversial" changes in guidelines governing “donation after cardiac death.”

At least, that's what some news sources labeled the changes.

A Washington Post article published on Monday stated the changes will do away with a suggested two-minute wait time after the donor’s heart has stopped beating to assure death before donation begins.

UNOS is saying otherwise after calling the article "a hysterical and inappropriate reaction to a very minor change in some standards."

According to UNOS spokesman Joel Newman:

“UNOS offers guidance on the different elements that hospitals should cover in their own organ donation policies, but the one thing we shouldn’t be weighing in on is how a hospital should be determining when death occurs. We are there to facilitate donation only after the medical care team has independently determined that death is inevitable."

The organization feels that the article may have stirred fears and changed some people's minds about signing up to be an organ donor. Charles Alexander, the former president of the group, said:

"If people misunderstand the message sent in the Post article, we end up losing public trust. When we don’t have public trust, there are families that may not opt to pursue organ donation and when that happens, people die.”

So no need to be alarmed! People aren't being unnecessarily killed off so their organs can be harvested quicker.
