  • 'Morbidly obese' woman drops 126 pounds and becomes fitness model

    A woman from Aarhus, Denmark, who was once classified as “morbidly obese” after tipping the scales at 268 pounds, now works as a physical trainer and sportswear model after dropping more than half of the weight in a period of four years. Mathilde Broberg, 22, lost the excess pounds partially by cutting out junk food, exercising avidly and following the “teaspoon diet,” where she measured out her food and ate with a teaspoon to ensure that the portion sizes weren’t larger than the size of a flat-out hand.

  • The Clinton Foundation Is Dead — But The Case Against Hillary Isn't

    While everyone's been gearing up for President Trump's inauguration, the Clinton Foundation made a major announcement this week that went by with almost no notice: For all intents and purposes, it's closing its doors. In a tax filing, the Clinton Global Initiative said it's firing 22 staffers and closing its offices, a result of the gusher of foreign money that kept the foundation afloat suddenly drying up after Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency. It proves what we've said all along: The Clinton Foundation was little more than an influence-peddling scheme to enrich the Clintons, and had little if anything to do with "charity," either overseas or in the U.S. That sound you heard starting in November was checkbooks being snapped shut in offices around the world by people who had hoped their donations would buy access to the next president of the United States. There was a strong precedent for it in Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

  • Sofia Vergara Mentored Ariel Winter Through Body Changes

    "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter has been very open about the physical struggles with her body, which eventually led to breast reduction surgery in 2015. The 18-year-old said that after she went public with the procedure, the reaction from fans and co-stars was mostly supportive. Winter had battled neck and spine problems and said she wanted to reduce her breast size from an F cup to a D cup for her physical and mental health. In a new interview with Self magazine, Winter talks about being so young in the public eye. She was 10 years old when the show started in 2009. "I had a hard time finding confidence within myself. When I started, I had a completely different body than what happened overnight

  • Florida Giant Alligator Latest Update: 'Humpback' Gator Is Not For Tourists, Nature Preserve Staff Warn [VIDEO]

    A video of a massive alligator walking through a reserve near Lakeland, Florida, had people speculating earlier this week whether it was a hoax. In the end, the video turned out to be real, and now people are taking trips to the area to see the great alligator named, “Humpback,” for themselves.  The video, which was uploaded Sunday to Facebook by Florida resident Kim Joiner, shows the massive reptile appearing out of a nearby bush at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Polk County and then casually walking on the reserve's Marsh Rabbit Run. Bystanders have since been seen flocking to the area to take pictures of the now-famous reptile, ABC News reported. Officials for the county's natural resources division

  • North Korea threatens to ‘nuke’ Trump’s inauguration

    North Korea is “readying two intercontinental ballistic missiles” to “nuke” Donald’s Trump inauguration, it’s been reported. Military officials say the rogue state wants to send a “strategic message” to the incoming US president by timing launches to ruin his big day on Friday. In a statement, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the reports could not be confirmed but that the military was monitoring the situation closely. However, according to news reports in South Korea, two missiles have already been placed on mobile launchers. The devices “are estimated to not exceed 15m [49 feet] in length, making them shorter than the North’s existing ICBMs.” An ICBM test in the coming days is “highly

  • I tried Whataburger, In-N-Out, and Shake Shack — and the winner is clear

    The INSIDER Summary: • There's always been competition between the east and west coasts when it comes to burgers.  • In-N-Out takes the title as the best burger, but Whataburger's honey chicken biscuits are a solid bet too. Ah, the great debate of burger joints. If you're on the Eastern side of the USA, you may be more of a Shake Shack fan. However, for those of you on the West Coast, you may be more partial to some In-N-Out or Whataburger. Unfortunately for me, I am smack dab in the middle with many other flyover states, and close to none of these amazing burger joints. However, I do travel a lot and have had the opportunity to try all three varieties, time and time again (I just love burgers,
