All in all, I realize that ‘glowing up’ is a process. There are some girls, of course, who commit themselves to pageant and media training for years; until the national competition, I’m committed to the ‘glow up,’ but I’m also exploring the world of journalism, media, and fashion before heading off to medical school. After all, being cultured isn’t something that you master—it’s something you cultivate over time. … [Read more...] about Here’s How I Went From Detroit Science Geek to NYC Pageant Chic—and Scored a Win for Heart Health Awareness
“We’ve been able to identify an online presence for associates of these individuals which gives you a very good pen portrait of their behavior and the type of lifestyle they lead,” NCA Cyber Crime Unit director Rob Jones told reporters, according to CNN. “Which is cash rich, fast cars, behaving and acting like very flamboyant and extravagant millionaires.” … [Read more...] about Members of Cybercrime Group Evil Corp Indicted for $100 Million In Heists and No One Can Touch Them
