Female high school students in Utah got upset after discovering their yearbook photos were altered to show less skin. They want to know why it was altered without their knowledge that the school wants to show less skin. Teachers from the school said that the students were aware of the dress code and there was a warning sign posted informing the students that their pictures may be edited.


Some of the students are so upset because they claim that the decisions to alter their photos were inconsistent. According to them, some of the students who showed more skin didn't got the photos altered. It is quite unfair to them that some girls were exempted to the "less skin" rule.

“I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who,” Rachel Russel, Sophomore Student
 The Wasatch County Superintendent admits the school erred in not applying the same rules to all students.
“We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we’re trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things,” Terry E. Shoemaker

A 25-year-old Brazilian man named Xiahn had undergone plastic surgery in order to look Asian, It was reportedly that the man wants to have that Korean look.

Xiahn started his fascination with the Korean look after he spent time in Korea wherein he was an exchange student by that time. He transformed himself into Korean-looking man by making alterations to his eyes using numerous plastic surgeries. He underwent 10 surgical procedures on his eyes, along with other less-invasive procedures.

Aside from wearing Korean fashion clothes, He also uses contact lenses to change the color of his eyes to make him look more asian. Xiahn is so happy that he got the the Asian look now and he has no regrets about it.
"Koreans have many surgeries to modify the shape of their eyes and become more like Westerners. It was easy to tell when one of them had done it, walking on the street wearing sunglasses and a surgical mask. I have no regrets, and I don’t intend to have any more procedures”

Meet Poppy, The world's oldest cat according to Guinness World Records. Poppy may look like an ordinary feline but don't underestimate her age. Poppy was born in February 1990 that makes her 24 Years old now and a ripe old 114 if we convert it in human years.
Today, though, I'm pleased to confirm that we're recognising Poppy from Bournemouth in the UK as the world's oldest living cat, at the age of 24 years. If anyone thinks their cat beats this, and can prove it, then we'd encourage them to get in touch with us. - Craig Glenday, Guinness World Records

Poppy is living with her owner, Jacqui West who adopted her since she was 5 years old. Poppy lives with four cats and she's still considered as the top cat despite her age. Poppy is now blind and deaf but she can still manage to be the top cat.

She's deaf and blind and meows for everything. We call her stroppy Poppy  sometimes. She can get up the stairs but we won't let her walk down. Over the last year her health has gone down and we know the end is near. We knew she is old but to be officially recognised is just great. We are all chuffed for her. I think all old cats deserve recognition of their achievement.
As a family, we are so pleased that she is still with us as well. There have been times in this last year when her health has declined and I've thought it was the end on several occasions but then she recovers and carries on.  Poppy does seem to be out-living all our other pets too. We unfortunately had a hamster and bunny die on us last year.Each time we tell the grandparents we've lost an animal, they all assume its Poppy. I've said goodbye to her a few times but she keeps on going. It brought a big smile to my face when I was told that Poppy was officially the world's oldest cat. - Jacqui West

The secret to Poppy's amazing longevity can be attributed to her good diet and regular exercise. Though she's now old and frail, Poppy being able to reach 114 years old in human years is an amazing and purr-fect achievement. We all hope that Poppy can live longer and bring joy to her owners for a very long time.
