Dr Aardon Rollins of Elite Body Sculptures – the website of which describes him as "the liposuction doctor to the stars" – also said that recent unairbrushed snaps of the 35-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star should serve as a warning to women looking to emulate her.

    • A Massive Lake Of Molten Carbon The Size Of Mexico Was Just Discovered Under The US

      A recent scientific discovery has drastically changed our view of the global carbon cycle and identified a new significant risk. Researchers have discovered a giant lake or reservoir made up of molten carbon sitting below the western US. The molten carbon (primarily in the form of carbonate) reservoir could drastically and immediately change the global climate for over a decade. Thankfully there is little risk in the near future of this happening. The carbon sits 217 miles beneath the surface of the Earth in the upper mantle and has no immediate pathway to the surface. In total the lake covers approximately 700,000 square miles, approximately the size of Mexico. This has redefined how much carbon

      Two days before the April 19th suicide of Aaron Hernandez, the former star New England Patriots tight end who had been serving a life sentence for the murder of his friend Odin Lloyd, the investigative journalist Michele McPhee appeared on a Boston sports radio show. It was “Marathon Monday” in Boston. McPhee, an ABC News producer, formerly a New York Daily News bureau chief, and an author of true-crime books, had been invited on WEEI’s “The Kirk & Callahan Show” to talk about her new book, “Maximum Harm,” which investigates the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Hernandez had just been acquitted of murder the previous Friday, in a separate case. But McPhee’s friends Kirk Minihane and Gerry Callahan

    • Hubble just delivered one of the most gorgeous space photos ever

      The past few weeks have been jam-packed with stunning imagery from Saturn, delivered courtesy of the Cassini spacecraft. Now, almost as if to say "Hey, remember me?", NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has grabbed our attention with what is almost certainly one of the most spectacular photos it's ever managed to capture. The photo, which was released this week, has a whole lot going on, including some tricky perspective work that, as NASA points out, really messes up the scale of everything you're seeing. The photo you see above — available in full resolution here — shows a couple of interesting celestial sights. For starters, the colorful collection of lights on the right is a galaxy called NGC 7250 which NASA notes is extremely active forming stars and playing host to supernovas. The galaxy is made up of billions of stars, and is located over 45 million light years away, so we're only seeing a tiny glimpse of what it has to offer. The ultra-bright star to the left of the galaxy is named TYC 3203-450-1, located in a constellation called Lacerta, which means "The Lizard." It's not a particularly notable star and researchers haven't spent a whole lot of time studying it thus far, but because of its distance from Earth — roughly 1/1,000,000 the distance of the galaxy in the photo — it appears to be a much more dominating force in the sky. NASA even notes that, if the two were photographed at similar distances from our planet, we probably wouldn't even be able to spot the star.

    • Montel Williams reveals how smoking marijuana every day for 17 years changed his life

      Former television personality Montel Williams has used cannabis nearly every day for 17 years. But he hasn't smoked it in over a decade. "I have dexterity problems. I can't roll a joint to save my life," Williams tells Business Insider. He prefers vaporizing more concentrated forms of the drug. Williams, who is also a retired Navy officer, suffers from multiple sclerosis, a disease that causes his immune system to attack the insulation around his nerves. It produces intense, burning sensations from his head to his toes. Every morning, Williams takes a fistful of pills to ease the pain. He supplements this cocktail with cannabis, which he started using after his diagnosis in 1999. The drug has
