'Elysium' to 'Iron Man 3': This Summer's 4 Weirdest Accents (Video)

From Will Smith's strange futuristic affectation to Ben Kingsley's theatrical turn as The Mandarin, THR takes a look at some of the most interesting accents to hit the big screen this summer


After Earth Will Smith Sophie Okonedo - H 2013


Summer films let us explore and escape to imaginative future worlds where people live on space stations, cancer is cured as quickly as taking an X-ray and flying robots protect humankind. But during the summer 2013 season, some films had one distracting addition: odd accents. Apparently in the future, people will speak in a strange amalgamation of British, South African, Australian and French accents. Also this summer, Johnny Depp brought a new sound to Tonto and Ben Kingsley rocked a very unique tone as The Mandarin. PHOTOS: 'Elysium': Inside the Visual Effects Here are some of the strangest accents to hit the big screen this summer: After Earth Will Smith's character Cypher lives in a futuristic society where Earth had been abandoned and weird accents have been accepted. When Cypher and his son (Jaden Smith) crash-land on Earth, they're forced to figure out how to survive long enough to escape. Described as sort of British, Australian, South African, and mid-Atlantic, the Smiths' impossible-to-place postapocalyptic accent was just one of many things that audiences did not like about the film. The $130 million sci-fi film earned a soft $60 million domestically and $243.6 million worldwide. Elysium Jodie Foster plays the bossy secretary of defense on the man-made luxury world Elysium in Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi film. At times, her character spoke French. At other times, she spoke in a very strange, sort-of-British accent. The performance likely came as a big surprise to many because the trailers for the film didn't feature Foster speaking any dialogue at all. The Lone Ranger Johnny Depp has played plenty of eccentric characters throughout his career, but when he took on the role of Tonto for Disney's big-budget film, his accent was a bit distracting. With hints of Italian and maybe Russian, Depp's Tonto voice was definitely not what was expected. Iron Man 3 In Iron Man 3, British actor Ben Kingsley played The Mandarin, a seemingly terrifying villain with an unplaceable accent. His eccentric wardrobe included Asian elements, but his voice was a deep growl with an interesting cadence. Those who saw the movie know that Kingsley's theatrical performance has a huge payoff later in the film. What did you think of the accents above? Sound off in the comments section below

Lamar Odom's DUI arrest adds to concerns

Lamar Odom's arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence Friday morning was the latest in a series of grim developments that could endanger the veteran free agent's hopes of returning to the NBA. The former Clippers and Lakers star refused to submit to chemical testing after his arrest, adding fuel to tabloid-style accusations regarding his private life during a tumultuous off-season. Odom was already coming off the worst two seasons of his career and there are no assurances the 14-year NBA veteran, who spent last season with the Clippers, will play another game. Odom's arrest came after nearly a week of concerned tweets from former teammates and coaches regarding reports from gossip websites about alleged drug use and problems with his marriage to Khloe Kardashian Odom. Jeff Schwartz, Lamar Odom's agent, did not return calls Friday seeking comment. Odom, 33, must confront another issue that threatens his career. "Lamar can't play anymore," said one senior executive with an NBA team who spoke on condition of anonymity because he did not want to publicly discuss a free agent. The 6-foot-10 forward averaged career lows in points (4.0), assists (1.7) and minutes (19.7) last season with the Clippers. If Odom does sign with a team and is convicted of DUI, he will face a mandatory evaluation by the director of the NBA's anti-drug program, according to terms of the league's collective bargaining agreement. Odom was taken into custody at 3:54 a.m. after a California Highway Patrol officer spotted him driving a white Mercedes sport-utility vehicle erratically on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley at speeds of about 50 mph. Authorities tried to pull over Odom, but he continued driving eastbound, passing Van Nuys Boulevard and Woodman Avenue. He exited at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard and came to a stop, CHP officials said. Odom showed "objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated," according to a CHP report. He refused to take chemical tests at the station upon his arrest to determine his level and type of intoxication. As a result, CHP officer Leland Tang said, Odom's driver's license will be suspended a year under California law. Tang said that if Odom had taken the tests, he would probably have faced a reduced suspension of his license. Odom was booked without incident, spent about 31/2 hours in jail and was released after posting $14,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Van Nuys Municipal Court on Sept. 27. Tang said the investigation will be reviewed by the Los Angeles city attorney's office, which will decide whether misdemeanor charges will be filed. Odom also had a minor traffic accident Aug. 24 on the 101 Freeway involving Times reporter Adolfo Flores in which no one was injured. The Lakers and Clippers had each spoken with Odom about a possible contract earlier this summer before committing to other players. The Clippers recently signed veteran forward Antawn Jamison, alleviating their need to re-sign Odom. Odom has mostly kept a low profile since the season ended, with the exception of a widely documented run-in with a paparazzo in Hollywood. After a photographer asked him whether he was having an extramarital affair, Odom confiscated a rolling bag believed to contain camera equipment and later deposited it on Hollywood Boulevard. The L.A. County district attorney's office declined to file charges, citing insufficient evidence. Odom has not been able to escape the scrutiny of gossip websites that have touted his alleged drug use, prompting widespread concern in the NBA community. "I wish my friend @RealLamarOdom is doing well," Lakers forward Pau Gasol tweeted Tuesday. "All these rumors are really worrying me. Lamar is one of the best guys I've ever played with." The previous day, Lakers legend Magic Johnson tweeted, "I hope my man and former Laker, Lamar Odom is doing okay." Replied former Lakers Coach Phil Jackson via Twitter: "Double ditto, LO."

Obama calls for congressional approval for military strike on Syria

WASHINGTON -- President Obama said Saturday that he believes the United States “should take military action” in response to last week’s chemical attack in Syria, but he will seek congressional approval for ordering a strike. In a brief statement delivered in the White House Rose Garden, Obama said the U.S. military was prepared to launch a strike against the Syrian government, but that readiness was "not time sensitive." Obama said he believes he has the authority to act without congressional approval, but asked lawmakers to weigh in and shoulder the responsibility for the decision. “The country will be stronger if we take this course,” Obama said. “We should have this debate.” PHOTOS: Syria before the war Obama said congressional leaders have agreed to take up an authorization measure as soon as they return from their August recess. The White House has been under pressure to seek lawmakers’ approval for any military action, but officials had been indicating the president was unlikely to take the route. Obama is far from assured of winning such a vote and a debate could turn into an embarrassing and divisive fight. The White House has been deliberating about a response since the Aug. 21 attack, which came a year after the president declared that the use of chemical weapons by the Syria government against its own people was the “red line” that would trigger a U.S. response. For days, the administration suggested that the apparent size and scope of the attack on the Damascus suburb would prompt a military action -- likely missile strikes on targets controlled by Syrian leader Bashar Assad. Mindful of war fatigue among the American public and its allies after years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq, officials emphsized that the goal of any action would not be “regime change” and would be limited. After initially calling on United Nations inspectors to investigate the attack, the Obama administration switched course and declared that the U.N. team would not learn more than what U.S. intelligence agencies had already uncovered. The White House released an intelligence assessment Friday concluding that a special chemical weapons unit of the Syrian government used nerve gas to kill more than 1,400 people, including at least 426 children, far more than most previous estimates. Obama on Saturday called it “the worst chemical weapons attack of the 21 century” and an “assault on human dignity.” DOCUMENT: U.S. chemical weapons intel Still, Obama had largely failed to win over key international partners and seemed prepared Friday to forge ahead without United Nations support or NATO allies. Only France has indicated it would back some military action. As Obama made his remarks, the weight of his dilemma was clear outside the White House. Protesters crowded Pennsylvania Avenue chanting “President Obama, hands off Syria!” and carrying yellow signs reading: “Not Our War.” They mingled with another demonstration calling for Obama to intervene in Egypt, where protesters have clashed with military-led government.

Singles Become Doubles



This last July, on a searingly hot day, as the tennis player Andy Murray closed in on a historic sporting achievement — to be the first British man to win a Wimbledon singles title since Fred Perry in 1936 — the BBC cameras kept shifting their gaze from one key character to another as the match entered what would be its final game. The first was, of course, Mr. Murray, a tortured expression on his face as one match point after another eluded him. The other was Novak Djokovic, grimly digging in as he tried to reclaim the title he had won two years earlier. The third, however, was not on the court at all but in the stands: a striking young woman in a green lace dress captured by the cameras alternately cheering, grimacing and then covering her eyes when the spectacle on Center Court became too nerve-racking to watch. That woman was Kim Sears, the longtime girlfriend of Mr. Murray. Her much-chronicled romance with the Scot has made Ms. Sears, an artist whose specialty is animal portraiture, as famous in Britain as any actress, model or member of the royal family. She is, in fact, part of a group of women who have become increasingly well known as the WAGs — the Wives and Girlfriends of world-famous athletes, a term that was first coined by the British press to describe the companions of that country’s soccer team (see: Victoria Beckham) and that has now gone both global and multisport. Many of the tennis WAGs will be seen at this year’s U.S. Open in New York, scheduled to be played through Sept. 9, with their moods, their facial expressions and even their outfits exhaustively chronicled by members of both the sports and fashion media. For instance, within 12 hours of Mr. Murray’s winning his late-night, first-round match on Wednesday, photos of Ms. Sears sitting in the stands and clutching what was identified as her “Ted Baker Baillie bag” (price tag: $560) were being e-mailed to fashion editors by the public-relations team at Ted Baker. If you’re watching the tennis on television this week, don’t be surprised if the cameras keep searching the stands for an up-close look of Jelena Ristic, Mr. Djokovic’s girlfriend (who appears in the September issue of Vogue in a one-page feature showing her in an Oscar de la Renta gown, among other designs, and identifying her as that month’s “It Girl”); Maria Francisca Perello, the longtime girlfriend of Rafael Nadal; the actress Sara Foster, the American fiancée of the German player Tommy Haas; Ester Satorova, the model who dates her fellow Czech Tomas Berdych; Bec Hewitt, the former Australian soap-opera star and the wife of Lleyton Hewitt; and, of course, the ubiquitous Mirka Federer, the wife of the 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer and a former player on the women’s circuit. Ms. Federer has become so recognizable to even the average fan that strangers regularly approach her on the street. “I’ve been with her many times when people ask for pictures and this and that,” Ms. Foster said. “She says, ‘Listen, I’m not the public figure here.’ ” Much fuss has been made over the attention Ms. Sears got at Wimbledon. Citing Google Analytics showing that she garnered three times as many Google searches as Marion Bartoli, the women’s champion, an editor at The Huffington Post wrote, “It saddens me to think that a bouncy blow dry and mint green dress has attracted more attention than the world-class performance by an established athlete.” Tennis players are not the only famous athletes whose dating lives have been well chronicled or whose girlfriends have become famous in their own right. The New York Yankee Derek Jeter had a longtime relationship with the actress Minka Kelly (and his teammate Alex Rodriguez a shorter one with Cameron Diaz). The Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander dated the model Kate Upton, the Los Angeles Dodger Matt Kemp was in a nearly yearlong relationship with Rihanna, while the football players Jay Cutler and Mark Sanchez dated the TV stars Kristin Cavallari and Jamie-Lynn Sigler, respectively, and Tom Brady is married to the supermodel Gisele Bündchen. But there is something about tennis that may explain why fans harbor a certain fascination with the romantic companions of their favorite players. As opposed to other sports, like football, where there are multiple athletes in helmets on the field, or even golf, where shots of the players are often from a distance — although the public certainly fixates on these athletes’ love lives, too (see: Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn) — in tennis you watch up-close footage of one player, locked in combat against another, wearing relatively little clothing and grunting and sweating for an extended period of time. “I think there is a general feeling of intimacy that comes with watching tennis,” said Gary Belsky, a columnist for Time.com and a former editor in chief of ESPN The Magazine. “And I think with feelings of intimacy come an interest in the intimate lives of people.” Perhaps for these reasons the public has always goggled at the relationships of tennis players, whether it was Andre Agassi and Brooke Shields, and later, Steffi Graf; John McEnroe and Tatum O’Neal; Pete Sampras and Bridgette Wilson; or Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker. But there are reasons to suggest that the current group of wives and girlfriends is getting more attention than the predecessors. One factor is social media. The rise of Twitter and blogs has made the public expect much more information from its celebrities. “I do think the intensity about wanting to know about somebody has naturally grown out of those new ways of communication,” said Kelly Wolf, senior director of personalities and properties for Octagon’s tennis division who has represented players like Michael Chang, Todd Martin, Martina Hingis and Mr. Hewitt. That means that the press must do a thorough job of not only constantly providing more photos and details about them but also finding new celebrities (like the wives and girlfriends) to feature. As Mr. Belsky, the Time.com columnist, noted, “As people, without even knowing it, demand more and more fixes of their celebrity drug, there is more of a demand to create and manufacture more celebrities.”

Obama Will seek Syria vote in Congress

WASHINGTON — President Obama stunned the capital and paused his march to war on Saturday by asking Congress to give him authorization before he launches a limited military strike against the Syrian government in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack. In a hastily organized appearance in the Rose Garden, Mr. Obama said he had decided that the United States should use force but would wait for a vote from lawmakers, who are not due to return to town for more than a week. Mr. Obama said he believed he has authority to act on his own but did not say whether he would if Congress rejects his plan. Mr. Obama’s announcement followed several days of faltering support for military action in Congress as well as in foreign capitals. On Thursday, Britain broke with its longtime American ally as its Parliament voted against a military attack on Syria. On Friday, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, Syria’s patron, argued that it was “simply utter nonsense” to believe Syria’s government would launch such an attack and challenged the United States to present any evidence to the United Nations. “I am convinced that it is nothing more than a provocation by those who want to involve other countries in the Syrian conflict, who want to gain the support of powerful members in international affairs, primarily, of course the United States,” Mr. Putin said in his first public remarks since reports of the chemical attack emerged. “I have no doubts about it.” At home, Mr. Obama had come under criticism from both sides of the political spectrum. Some lawmakers had maintained that the United States should stay out of a civil war that has already cost more than 100,000 lives, or at least should wait for Congressional or United Nations backing. Others complained that the limited strike envisioned by the president would be ineffectual, especially after days of virtually laying out the plan of attack in public. The debate came as the region braced for an attack that Syrian officials told regional news media they were expecting “at any moment” and were ready to retaliate against. United Nations weapons inspectors left Syria for Lebanon early Saturday after four days of efforts to investigate the Aug. 21 attack. American officials had made clear they would hold off using force until the inspectors departed safely but had no intention of waiting until they had delivered a formal report. The inspectors were heading to The Hague with blood and urine samples taken from victims of the attack, as well as soil samples from areas where the attacks took place. They were due to deliver the sample to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons on Saturday afternoon. The samples will be divided so each can be sent to at least two separate European laboratories for testing, according to United Nations officials, but experts said the testing would not be completed for several days at the earliest. Angela Kane, the United Nations disarmament chief, briefed Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday. While the inspectors were assigned to determine whether a chemical strike took place, it was not their mandate to assign culpability. Martin Nesirky, a United Nations spokesman, said that Ms. Kane’s team would give Mr. Ban its conclusions “as soon as it has received the results of the laboratory analysis of its samples.” Obama administration officials argued that the United Nations findings would be redundant, since American intelligence had already concluded, based on human sources and electronic eavesdropping, that Mr. Assad’s government was responsible for launching nerve agents in the eastern suburbs of Damascus. An intelligence summary released by the White House on Friday said 1,429 people were killed, including at least 426 children. The summary concluded with “high confidence” that the Syrian government had carried out the attack.

2 Canadian warships collide en route to Hawaii

HMCS Protecteur (pictured above) is returning to port in Esquimalt, B.C., with HMCS Algonquin after the two warships collided on Friday during manoeuvres while en route to Hawaii. Two Canadian warships are returning to port in Esquimalt, B.C. after colliding during manoeuvres while en route to Hawaii. No one was hurt, but a Defence Department statement says HMCS Algonquin sustained significant damage to her port side hangar while HMCS Protecteur sustained damage of a lesser degree to her bow. The statement says the ships were conducting towing exercises, which require close-quarters manoeuvring, when the collision occurred late Friday morning. The ships are expected to return to Esquimalt harbour this afternoon. Commodore Bob Auchterlonie, Commander of Canadian Fleet Pacific, said a Royal Canadian Navy Board of Inquiry would be convened to fully investigate the incident. The Navy says that while the full impact on the ships' future sailing schedules has yet to be determined, HMCS Algonquin will no longer deploy to Asia Pacific region as planned.

America's most popular six-figure jobs

The median household income in the United States has increased slightly over the past two years, but it is still down more than 6% from the start of the recession. As of June, a U.S. family earned an estimated median of $52,100 annually, according to Sentier Research. This means that the vast majority of families, let alone individuals, earn far less than the coveted six-figure annual salary that is often associated with prosperity. Most of these high-paid occupations are managerial positions. This includes managers in finance, sales, computer and information systems, and architectural and engineering. These are managers who likely have been employed in their field for years and have developed enough expertise to direct multiple employees in their field and oversee operations - and they are paid accordingly. As of 2012, there were close to 6.4 million people in managerial roles in the United States. The median annual salary for a manager is just under $94,000. These positions are all the largest in the country for their level of income, but they are not all growing. In fact, the number of marketing and financial managers declined by more than 10% between 2002 and 2012. Other jobs have shown more promise. The number of computer and information systems managers rose by 17% over that time, while the number of pharmacists grew by more than 23%. To determine the America's top-paying six-figure jobs, 24/7 Wall St. screened figures from the BLS Occupational Employment Statistics program for 2012, for the jobs with more than 100,000 workers and a median wage of more than $100,000 annually. The figures are estimates subject to sampling error and do not count self-employed workers. Data are collected by the program over several years. We considered only occupations that existed in both 2002 and 2012, when discussing job growth. Further information on each occupation came from the BLS Occupational Outlook Handbook. These are America's most popular six-figure jobs. 9. Family and General Practitioners • Employment: 110,050 • Median wage: $172,020 Family and general physicians treat commonplace injuries and illnesses, conduct check-ups and recommend patients to specialists as needed. Like other physicians, family and general practitioners have to attend medical school, complete a residency program and must be licensed. Unlike many surgeons and specialists, family and general physicians tend to have a solid base of regular clients. In 2012, the median wage for such physicians was more than $172,000, one of the highest in the nation. 8. Marketing Managers • Employment: 171,430 • Median wage: $119,480 Marketing managers are responsible for monitoring market trends and demand in order to develop strategies that would help a company maximize its sales. This may involve changing prices or estimating the effect of introducing a new product to market. Marketing managers typically have a bachelor's degree and a background in accounting, economics, statistics or one of several other fields. Most also have significant work experience prior to becoming managers. Pay can vary considerably: the top 25% earned more than $160,810 annually in 2012, while the bottom 25% were paid less than $85,740 - still over $50,000 more than the median wage for all occupations. 7. Architectural and Engineering Managers • Employment: 187,640 • Median wage: $124,870 Architectural and engineering managers are charged with drawing up the plans needed to meet the technical goals of a project. They then oversee the project from its beginning to ensure its successful completion. Becoming an architectural or engineering manager requires either a bachelor's degree in an engineering speciality, or a professional degree in architecture, according to the BLS. More than three-fourths of all such managers earned $100,000 annually as of 2012. However, the number of such managers also declined by an estimated 18% between 2002 and 2012. 6. Chief Executives • Employment: 255,940 • Median wage: $168,140 There were more than a quarter of a million chief executives nationwide as of 2012. Becoming a top executive, however, is not very easy, especially at a large business. Top executives often require extensive managerial experience and many have a master's in business administration. According to BLS figures for 2010, just 17% of top executives were chief executives. In 2012, the median wage for chief executives was more than $168,000 - although pay is determined by a combination of factors such as company size and type. Performance bonuses, stock options and executive perks actually may increase income substantially, although these compensation packages are often roundly criticized. 5. Pharmacists • Employment: 281,560 • Median wage: $116,670 Pharmacists, like many of the medical professions, are highly paid, partly because of the amount and cost of the training required. After earning their bachelor's degree, pharmacists must spend an additional three to four years obtaining their doctorate in pharmacy. A smaller group of those looking for a clinical pharmacy or research job must also go through one to two years of residency. As pharmacies often can be open past normal business hours, some pharmacists may work nights and weekends as well. Because of the growing number of new drugs available and the increasing elderly population, pharmacists are also a growing occupation nationwide. The number of pharmacists increased an estimated 28.3% between 2002 and 2012. 4. Computer and Information Systems Managers • Employment: 309,740 • Median wage: $120,950 Computer and information systems managers are responsible for managing the work of an IT department at a private sector company or government entity. Their responsibilities include proposing improvements to an organization's hardware and software needs, overseeing the execution of these improvements, and ensuring the security of the network and data. Some IT managers, such as chief information and chief technology officers, are among the senior executives at a firm. Pay for a typical manager exceeded $120,000 per year as of 2012, and more than one in four earned more than $150,000 last year. 3. Sales Managers • Employment: 344,730 • Median wage: $105,260 Sales managers typically run a sales team. They direct and train members of the team and review performance data. Pay for someone in this position can vary widely, depending on their role and what industry they are in, according to the BLS. The bottom 10% earned less than $53,000, while the top 25% earned more than $150,000. Commissions, too, can be a major factor for total compensation. Therefore the product being sold and the team's success can make a big difference in the managers' final take-home pay. There are an estimated 344,730 sales managers in the country. 2. Financial Managers • Employment: 484,910 • Median wage: $109,740 Financial managers create financial statements and direct investment strategies. They typically do not need more than a bachelor's degree, but lower-level workers usually need at least five years on the job before they can advance to the position. These managers are often responsible for keeping the company finances, cash flow and credit in good order. Many financial managers work at insurance companies, banks and other institutions, offering financial advice and services to businesses, but they can work in all industries. 1. Lawyers • Employment: 581,920 • Median wage: $113,530 There were well over half a million lawyers in the United States as of 2012, making the profession the largest among those with a median wage of at least $100,000 annually. Attorneys are required to first earn a bachelor's degree. They then typically have to complete a law school education and pass a state's bar exam. Lawyers can specialize in criminal law, tax law, litigation or many other areas. However, in recent years, many of the most lucrative positions - those at the firms collectively known as Big Law - have disappeared. According to a July report by The New Republic, most Big Law firms may soon disappear as businesses cut costs and demand for high-cost legal services continues to decline.

Mexico Captures Alleged Sinaloa Cartel Lieutenant

Mexican police have captured an alleged former Sinaloa drug cartel lieutenant accused of involvement in the killings of more than 350 people found in various mass graves in 2011. Federal security spokesman Eduardo Sanchez says police in the northern state of Chihuahua detained 39-year-old Mario Nunez in the border city of Ciudad Juarez. The former police officer began working with the rival Juarez Cartel before joining the Sinaloa organization led by Mexico's most-wanted man, Joaquin Guzman. Sanchez said Thursday the suspect is behind a wave of violence in Ciudad Juarez, which is across from El Paso, Texas. The government claims Nunez's power struggle with another drug chieftain resulted in the slayings of dozens. Nunez is wanted in the U.S. on drug-trafficking charges in a Texas federal court.

4 cosas que debes saber sobre tu ropa interior

Mislav-m (CC) Flickr Muchas mujeres compran su ropa interior considerando primordialmente variables como el diseño, la comodidad o el precio, sin tomar en cuenta la seguridad. En este sentido, algunos expertos señalaron a revista Shape, algunas verdades que debes saber… 1. ¿Es mejor usar o no usar ropa interior cuando haces ejercicio? La especialista en salud femenina, la doctora estadounidense Doerthe Brueggmann, señala que “a las bacterias y hongos les encantan los ambientes húmedos y cálidos”, por lo tanto, una protección muy eficaz y sencilla es no usar ropa interior debajo de las prendas de ejercicios, para que fluya el sudor y no se acumule la humedad. Por otro lado, David Bank, fundador y director del Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, señala que más allá de usar o no ropa interior, lo importante es que la tela que está en contacto con los genitales tenga la capacidad de absorber la humedad. Él dice que si utilizas este tipo de ropa, entonces no es necesario usar calzones. Además, indica que muchos pantalones y calzas deportivas tienen incorporado una ropa interior base con tejido antibacterial. 2. ¿Las tangas y colaless son dañinos? Para que no se le marque la ropa interior o simplemente para sentirse más sexy, muchas mujeres usan tangas y colaless. Tanto las tangas como los colaless pueden traer efectos secundarios, sobre todo si las usas para el ejercicio, ya que suelen deslizarse más hacia atrás con el movimiento, señala Bank, añadiendo que la fricción, sumada al calor puede dar lugar a infecciones urinarias y vaginales infecciones, independientemente del tipo de tela. David Elmer, médico del Nantucket Cottage Hospital, dice que este tipo de prendas ayudan a deslizar las bacterias desde la parte trasera a la vagina y el tracto urinario. 3. ¿Son malos el satín y el encaje? Según Christine O’Connor, directora de Atención de la Mujer Adolescente y Ginecología en The Weinberg Center for Women’s Health at Mercy Medical Center, la mejor tela para la ropa interior es el algodón porque absorbe la humedad y deja que la piel respire. La experta recomienda no comprar ropa interior con costuras duras o accesorios, porque irritan y son abrasivas, esto incluye prendas de encaje y satín, que además preservan la humedad y pueden exponer a infecciones. 4. ¿Es bueno depilar completamente la zona púbica? Y si lo haces, ¿es bueno usar ropa interior? Aunque algunas mujeres dicen sentirse “más limpias” con la zona púbica depilada, lo cierto es que puede tener el efecto contrario. El vello púbico protege la región genital y la piel sensible de esa zona, señala Bank, añadiendo que cuando se rasura o utiliza cera, se extrae una importante capa de protección. Los posibles riesgos incluyen infecciones de transmisión sexual, quemaduras, pelos encarnados infectados, y cicatrices. Pero si aún sigues con la idea de depilarte completamente, Brueggmann recomienda que lo hagas con cera porque “es el método más suave para eliminar el vello y debe ser el método preferido, especialmente si tienes la piel sensible o propensa a desarrollar infecciones”. Además procura usar ropa interior de algodón para proteger esa zona que está más expuesta sin el vello.

Intendencia autorizó marcha estudiantil por la Alameda

Peribonio se reunió con dirigentes estudiantiles. El intendente de la Región Metropolitana, Juan Antonio Peribonio, autorizó el recorrido de la próxima marcha estudiantil del 5 de septiembre, que finalmente pasará por la Alameda. Tras una reunión con los dirigentes de universitarios, secundarios y profesores, la autoridad informó que la manifestación se iniciará a las 11:00 de la mañana en Plaza Italia y avanzará por la Alameda hasta calle Mac Iver, luego tomará Cardenal Caro, para finalizar en esta calle entre puente La Paz y puente Padre Hurtado, en las proximidades de la Estación Mapocho. Peribonio hizo un llamado a los asistentes a marchar pacíficamente: "Hemos aprobado un trazado que se ha realizado otras veces y ahora la invitación a los dirigentes y a quienes asistan a esta marcha es a hacerlo pacíficamente, con calma, evitando hechos de violencia". La autoridad reiteró su llamado a "aislar a los encapuchados y denunciarlos, pues con la violencia nadie gana. Tampoco quienes marchan por causas que pueden ser justas, pues se termina hablando de los encapuchados y la violencia, no de sus demandas". La Intendencia informó que el trayecto fue determinado tras una serie de informes técnicos emanados desde la Seremi de Transportes y Carabineros que concluyeron que esta era la ruta más conveniente, pues "afectaba de menor manera el desplazamiento de los habitantes de la Región". El término del acto fue fijado para las 13:30 horas. Estudiantes valoraron decisión de la Intendencia El presidente de la Federación de Estudiantes de la Universidad Católica (FEUC), Diego Vela, valoró que la Intendencia "permitió lograr un acuerdo en cuanto al recorrido. El día 5 de septiembre vamos a marchar desde las 11:00 de la mañana desde Plaza Italia, Alameda, Mac Iver hasta Estación Mapocho". "Esta autorización, con más de una semana de anticipación, nos permite poder gestionar de buena forma de que la marcha funcione de manera pacífica y, sobre todo al final del día, podamos hablar de educación y de los cambios estructurales que necesitamos y no se desvíe el foco hacia otros aspectos", agregó Vela. Además, los estudiantes presentarán su propuesta programática este 5 de septiembre, documento en el que han estado trabajando durante las últimas semanas y que contiene un resumen de las demandas por las que se han movilizado desde 2011: gratuidad, fin al lucro y desmunicipalización, entre otras.

Maryland ticket holder claims share of $656M Mega Millions lottery jackpot

The Mega mystery may be solved Tuesday -- or maybe not. The holder of the winning ticket from Maryland has come forward to claim a share of last month's record $656 million Mega Millions lottery drawing, state lottery officials announced Monday. Three winning tickets were sold across the country, but speculation about the Maryland ticket reached fever pitch last week when a Maryland woman said she had the ticket, then claimed she had hidden it inside the McDonald's restaurant where she works. Her attorney, who admitted he couldn't back up her story, said she wanted to be left alone. Was she telling the truth? Was it all a hoax? Even after lottery officials hold their news conference at 8 a.m. Tuesday, we still may not know. The winner has chosen to remain anonymous. Lottery spokeswoman Carole Everett says the winner claimed the prize with the winning ticket at lottery headquarters on Monday. She says she wouldn't give any details about the winner until Tuesday morning. Maryland's winner bought the ticket at a 7-Eleven store in Milford Mill outside Baltimore. That person will split the prize with winners in Illinois and Kansas. Lottery officials increased the final jackpot to $656 million after tallying sales from the 44 state lotteries. Maryland has been the home of Mega Millions winners in the past. In 2007, Ellwood "Bunky" Bartlett won roughly $27 million after taxes.

NC scientist part of team that discovers new species

olinguito olinguito
olinguito Roland Kays


Raleigh, N.C. — A team of scientists, including a North Carolina State University professor, has discovered a new species of carnivore, the Smithsonian Institution announced Thursday. N.C. State professor Roland Kays, who also serves as director of the Biodiversity Lab at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, helped uncover the existence of the olinguito, a small meat-eater that lives in the cloud forests of Colombia and Ecuador. The animal, which is related to raccoon, olingos, coatis and kinkajous, weighs about 2 pounds and has large eyes and wooly orange-brown fur. Scientists describe its appearance as a cross between a house cat and a teddy bear. The finding marks the first discovery of a carnivore species in the Western hemisphere in 35 years. “The discovery of the olinguito shows us that the world is not yet completely explored, its most basic secrets not yet revealed,” team leader Kristofer Helgen, curator of mammals at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, said in a statement. “If new carnivores can still be found, what other surprises await us? So many of the world’s species are not yet known to science. Documenting them is the first step toward understanding the full richness and diversity of life on Earth.” The discovery was the result of a 10-year project to study olingos and determine how the different species are distributed. Examining museum specimens, new testing of DNA and a comprehensive review of existing field research led to the discovery of the olinguito. Combing through historic data, the scientists found the olinguito’s teeth and skull were smaller and differently shaped than its cousins, and it lived at an elevation in the northern Andes Mountains that was much higher than where previous olingos had been seen. Kays led a field expedition to figure out whether the species still existed in the wild. “The data from the old specimens gave us an idea of where to look, but it still seemed like a shot in the dark,” Kays said in a statement. “But these Andean forests are so amazing that, even if we didn’t find the animal we were looking for, I knew our team would discover something cool along the way.” A colleague in Ecuador shared with the team a few seconds of grainy video he shot showing the animal. That footage prompted Helgen and Kays to set off on a three-week expedition to the western slopes of the Andes, where they found the olinguito. "This is my favorite part, to get in the field and look for animals like this," Kays said. "It's tricky because they only come out at night and they are only up in the trees up high, and it's real mountainous terrain. So it's putting on a head lamp, waiting until sunset and putting on your rubber boots, trekking up and down hills." Scientists said the olinguito may have been overlooked or misidentified for decades. In 1920, a zoologist in New York saw one museum specimen so unusual, he thought it might be a new species. But he never followed through on the research. “This is the first step,” Helgen said. “Proving that a species exists and giving it a name is where everything starts. This is a beautiful animal, but we know so little about it. How many countries does it live in? What else can we learn about its behavior? What do we need to do to ensure its conservation?”

Pomona shootings: At least 3 separate killings, gunmen at large

POMONA, Calif. (KABC) -- A search is underway for multiple gunmen after a wave of deadly shootings in Pomona over the weekend. According to coroner's records, there were at least three people killed within Saturday night and Sunday morning. There were four crime scenes across Pomona during that time frame, though authorities have released information regarding just three of those cases. Sources tell Eyewitness News that these shootings are not connected. The most recent incident occurred at about 3 a.m. Sunday at San Bernardino Avenue and Benedict Way. Police say Pomona resident Angel Bravo, 29, left his home to head to the store and was standing by his car, which was parked on the street, when another vehicle drove up next to him. Someone in the suspect car opened fire, killing Bravo. That car was described as a white compact vehicle. Bravo's mother, Sandra Skinner, described her son as a hard-working father of four. "My son was a person who would extend himself to anyone. He would help anyone," said Skinner. "You can't judge a book by its cover. He was working hard to improve his life and to make a change and to better himself." About three hours prior to this incident, there was another shooting in an alley near the 300 block of Orchid Lane at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. Isais Lopez, 24, of Ontario and an 18-year-old friend from Pomona were walking in the alley when they were shot by unknown suspects. Lopez died at the scene, and his friend was rushed to an area hospital for emergency surgery. Two hours before that, 45-year-old Jose Cerda was also shot and killed on Lexington Avenue, west of Garey Avenue at about 9:30 p.m. Police say Cerda, a Pomona resident, was riding his bicycle in the area when a vehicle pulled up alongside him, and someone inside opened fire. Cerda was pronounced dead at the scene. The suspect vehicle was seen making a U-turn and driving back westbound on Lexingon Avenue, then south on Park Avenue. If you have any information about any of these cases, you're urged to contact the Pomona Police Department's Detective Bureau at (909) 620-2085.

billetera móvil: Desde este jueves se puede pagar con el celular El sistema, señalan sus creadores, es seguro, "pues reside en la SIM Card del smartphone". Se trata de un programa piloto.

Ni monedas, ni billetes, ni cheques... ni tarjetas. A partir de este jueves -y de manera progresiva- en el comercio chileno se podrá pagar con el celular. Se trata del proyecto piloto "Billetera Móvil", la primera experiencia de pago con el sistema NFC (Near Field Communication) en nuestro país. En una primera etapa, serán 200 los clientes que podrán probar el servicio en aquellos lugares habilitados. La cadena de cafés «Starbucks» será uno de ellos. El sistema, explicaron sus creadores, es 100% seguro "pues reside en la SIM Card del smartphone". ¿Cómo funcionará? En Movistar y Banco Santander, donde diseñaron la aplicación, cuentan que el sistema permitirá a las personas realizar pagos en más de 5 mil puntos habilitados utilizando el dinero de su tarjeta de crédito, "la que estará disponible en el teléfono móvil para aceptar transacciones con la tecnología ' contactless ', o pago sin contacto". Esta novedad cuenta también con el respaldo de las empresas Samsung, Oberthur Technologies y MasterCard. El piloto se extenderá durante un año, y sólo funcionará en el modelo S3 de los Galaxy. La tecnología NFC tiene un gran potencial de mercado. Según estimaciones de la industria, en el mundo se habrán vendido alrededor de 1.500 millones de dispositivos con este sistema entre 2010 y 2016, con los que se realizarán transacciones globales por un valor de US$ 50.000 millones durante ese período (datos de Strategy Analytics). La tendencia va al alza: la implantación de terminales de punto de venta con NFC está creciendo: de casi 4 millones en 2011 se pasará a más de 43 millones para el 2017, año en que se prevé que el 53% de los pagos electrónicos mundiales se realizará en terminales NFC, según cálculos de Berg Insight. "En Samsung esperamos que este piloto sea exitoso y que en el futuro la aplicación se masifique", dijo hoy Mauricio Dacaret, gerente de productos y servicios del área IM de Samsung Chile. Arnaud de La Chapelle, director general de Soluciones de la Unidad de Negocios de Oberthur Technologies, afirmó que "este proyecto es el primero de su tipo en Latinoamérica (...) Es un método de pago móvil práctico y seguro". Paula Figueroa, directora de Marketing de Movistar, garantizó que "la tecnología NFC permite realizar pagos con el móvil de manera óptima y tan segura como con cualquier tarjeta de crédito". Por su parte, Patricio Sandoval, gerente general de MasterCard en Chile, comentó que este tipo de innovaciones "favorecerán a futuro una mayor inclusión financiera en el país". Lento, lento... Se espera lanzar este producto comercialmente antes que finalice el año 2013, terminando así con la experiencia piloto. Sin embargo -y si bien algunos aseguran que el primer pago móvil en el mundo nació en Chile cuando una marca de bebidas instaló máquinas expendedoras que se podían pagar por mensaje de texto-, hay quienes expresan que esta "revolución" crecerá lentamente. Uno de los motivos sería que, a pesar de la alta penetración de la tecnología celular en nuestro país, ésta no se aplica a teléfonos de alta tecnología, los que aún son caros para nuestro nivel de ingreso. Por eso, y mientras en algunos países como Japón los teléfonos que incorporan tecnología NFC se llevan la mayor parte del mercado, en Chile recién bordean el 15% del total de aparatos.

Revelan detalles de las últimas horas de vida del difunto actor de "Glee"

Uno de los amigos más cercanos de Cory Monteith dijo que el actor pasó su última noche en compañía de personas que no consumían drogas, por lo que su sobredosis no fue gatillada por la influencia de terceros.



Revelan detalles de las últimas horas de vida del difunto actor de 'Glee'


SANTIAGO.- La autopsia de Cory Monteith fue clara: falleció por una sobredosis de drogas. Este informe hizo suponer que el actor de "Glee" consumió un exceso de sustancias ílicitas durante una fiesta que llevó a cabo con un grupo de amigos horas antes de morir. No obstante, el profesor de teatro del actor de 31 años, Andrew McIlroy, aseguró a la revista People que a ese encuentro acudieron sólo "buenas influencias" para el hombre que dio vida a "Finn Hudson", por lo cual en sus últimas horas de vida tuvo un "carrete" sano con sus amigos y más tarde, cuando ya estaba solo, consumió drogas. McIlroy era uno de los amigos más cercanos de Monteith, y conoce a los jóvenes con los que el actor pasó su última noche en el Hotel Fairmont Pacific Rim de Vancouver. "No eran desconocidos, no eran tipos malos. Eran amigos desde hace mucho tiempo, tipos sobrios. Cory los conocía desde hace unos 10 años. Esencialmente, ellos pasaban tiempo juntos de una manera sobria", dijo McIlroy. "Ellos no estaban consumiendo", dijo enfático el maestro de Monteith a la revista de celebridades estadounidense. El malogrado protagonista de "Glee" fue hallado sin vida el pasado 13 de julio en Canadá. Los informes médicos no tardaron en determinar que murió por sobredosis. Él nunca negó que tenía un problema con las drogas, pero a comienzos de este año entró a rehabilitación y se suponía que había controlado su enfermedad.

Nuevas leyes rusas llevan a familias homosexuales al anonimato o al exilio

Desde 2005 el número de personas que cree que los homosexuales deberían tener los mismos derechos que el resto de la sociedad bajó de un 51% al 39% este año.



Nuevas leyes rusas llevan a familias homosexuales al anonimato o al exilio
MOSCÚ.- La legislación antigay aprobada este año en Rusia ha convencido a varias parejas homosexuales a iniciar los trámites para dejar el país. Desde la ley que prohíbe la "propaganda gay" a menores, se han disparado las críticas contra la política de Putin en todo el mundo e incluso ha habido llamados a que Rusia no pueda ser sede de los juegos olímpicos de invierno en 2014. Una pareja de lesbianas, María y Alexandra ha decidido abandonar el país. Trabajan como docentes y viven con una hija de 7 años a las afueras de Moscú, debido a estos cambios en políticas que influyen directamente en ellas han perdido la esperanza de que Rusia avance en línea con el resto de los países europeos, donde los matrimonios entre homosexuales es legal en cada vez más países. Las dos creen que la ley contra la propaganda gay es sólo el principio, y recuerdan las declaraciones de la diputada Yelena Mizulina, quien dijo que el Estado podría hacerse con la custodia de los hijos criados por parejas homosexuales. "Antes teníamos la esperanza de que todo mejoraría, pero en vez de eso, la tendencia se ha invertido. Espero que nos vayamos", explica Maria, de 31 años, cuya hija, Lilya, es fruto de un corto matrimonio. Ahora la cría junto a Alexandra, de 30 años, su pareja desde hace seis. En la práctica, la ley implica que cualquiera puede ser multado en Rusia por decir a los niños que las relaciones heterosexuales y las homosexuales son iguales. Esto es lo que "realmente nos decidió" a abandonar el país, explica María, que como el resto de los interrogados para este testimonio, pidió omitir su apellido o incluso ocultarse bajo un nombre ficticio. Ambas han iniciado los trámites para obtener el permiso de residencia en Canadá, donde Alexandra, investigadora, podría trabajar. Yelena Mizulina, que preside el comité para la Familia de la cámara baja, indicó hace meses que está elaborando una nueva política familiar basada en valores "tradicionales" como el matrimonio heterosexual, la prohibición del aborto, quitar los hijos a las parejas gays y prohibir que éstas adopten. El mes pasado, el influyente patriarca de la iglesia ortodoxa, Kirill, calificó el aumento de la legalización de las bodas homosexuales en varios países de "síndrome de apocalipsis" contra el que Rusia debe luchar. La retórica conservadora ha aumentado en Rusia de la mano de una intolerancia creciente. Desde 2005, el número de personas que cree que los homosexuales deberían tener los mismos derechos que el resto de la sociedad bajó de un 51% al 39% este año, según el centro de sondeos Levada. Los crímenes contra los gays apenas se investigan, afirmó el abogado Ilnur Sharapov, que ha representado a personas heridas en manifestaciones gays por neonazis o activistas ortodoxos ultraconservadores. En un clima cada vez más homófobo, a los padres homosexuales les preocupa qué pasará si a sus hijos les preguntan sobre su situación familiar en la escuela.

Confirman la cancelación del reality del segundo semestre de Canal 13 por problemas de presupuesto

La noticia fue entregada por el productor del espacio, Ignacio Corvalán, quien señaló que "los costos eran superiores" a lo que el canal quería invertir.


Mundos Opuestos 2



Otro golpe han experimentados los realities en el 2013. A la disminución en el rating experimentada por Mundos opuestos 2 respecto a su primera parte, se suma la cancelación del reality correspondiente al segundo semestre de este año. La noticia fue confirmada por el productor ejecutivo del programa, Ignacio Corvalán, quien señaló a través de su cuenta de Twitter: "Estimados, efectivamente se suspendió el Reality.

Los costos eran superiores a lo q el Canal quiere invertir...pero esto no ha terminado. — Ignacio Corvalán (@icorvalan71) August 9, 2013 El equipo de Corvalán, el mismo de Pareja Perfecta, se formó tras el éxito de Sergio Nakasone en el formato, con lo que el canal logró levantar dos equipos que turnaban sus producciones semestralmente. La cancelación del reality que nuevamente conduciría Karla Constant se suma a la disminución en la sintonía que ha experimentado el formato: mientras Mundos Opuestos 1 logró 26,2 puntos de rating promedio durante su emisión en 2012, la segunda parte del programa alcanzó 16,5 unidades hasta el 26 de junio, cuando llegó a su fin, según cifras de Time Ibope. El canal privado declinó entregar una versión oficial.

Carlos Larraín refuerza apoyo a Matthei: "Va a terminar imponiéndose la sensatez en el consejo general"

Cónclave de RN votará el apoyo de la tienda a la candidata de la UDI. Timonel dijo que por el momento no está confirmada la asistencia de Matthei.


Con un discurso del presidente de RN, Carlos Larraín, se dará comienzo al consejo general de RN, que además de ratificar su plantilla parlamentaria votará el respaldo de la tienda a la candidatura de Evelyn Matthei. Previo a que comenzara la cita, el timonel de RN señaló que "yo acá soy un simple militante, tomo nota, pero tengo mi opinión que es que tenemos que apoyar a Evelyn Matthei, que ella ha dado señales que va a tomar en serio al partido, ella nos necesita a nosotros y nosotros a ella". "Lo he dicho explícitamente, luego que se nos han dado garantías que se nos va a tratar como el partido equivalente a la UDI que somos. Algo pesará mi voz", agregó en conversación con canal 24Horas. El timonel además señaló que "yo espero que hayan pocas sorpresas y buenas". Adicionalmente, en conversación con Cooperativa, Larraín manifestó que durante el consejo "va a terminar imponiéndose la sensatez, la directiva del partido está empeñada en eso". De acuerdo a los estatutos de RN se requieren dos tercios de los votos de los consejeros nacionales para aprobar el apoyo a la ex titular del Trabajo. Consultado sobre la posibilidad que Matthei no asista al consejo de RN, Larraín explicó que "ella está en otro consejo general. Esto es de lato desarrollo, hablan todos, este es el día del consejero nacional del partido, hay que dejarlos explayarse, yo tengo que tomar nota de lo que ellos dicen". En este contexto, el timonel planteó que una de las opciones en caso que Matthei no pueda llegar al consejo de RN es que la directiva realice una visita a su casa para expresarle el apoyo del partido. MILITANTES REALIZAN MANIFESTACION Y EXIGEN REPONER CANDIDATURA DE KARLA RUBILAR Con pancartas llegó un grupo de militantes y adherentes de RN hasta las afueras del hotel Plaza San Francisco, donde se realiza la cita partidaria. En el lugar exigen reponer la candidatura de la diputada por Renca, Conchalí y Huechuraba, Karla Rubilar, luego que el consejo de RN en la región metropolitana quitara el respaldo a la repostulación de la parlamentaria, debido al apoyo que dio durante la campaña de primarias al ex abanderado presidencial de la UDI, Laurence Golborne. Decenas de personas exigen en las afueras del Consejo General RN que se le retorne su cupo a @KarlaEnAccion pic.twitter.com/CcEJFXijqd — Alex_era (@Alex_era) August 10, 2013 Tras una solicitud del ex candidato presidencial de RN, Andrés Allamand, el consejo regional accedió a repetir la votación durante el transcurso del consejo nacional.
