DUTCH GIRL AGES 12 YEARS IN ALMOST 3 MINUTES SHOWN IN THIS VIDEO

Lotte Hofmeester was filmed once a week every week since her birth in October 1999.

It took Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester’s daughter Lotte 12 years to grow from a full-cheeked infant to a coy 12-year-old girl on the brink of adolescence.

But you can watch this incredible (and inevitable) evolution take place in less than three minutes, thanks to Hofmeester’s video “Lotte Time Lapse: Birth to 12 years in 2 min. 45.”

Hoffmeester filmed his daughter once a week, every week, since her birth in October 1999. As she was about to enter adolescence, he decided it was time to share this visual history of his daughter’s growth with the world.

He strung the videos together and sped them up, creating a time-lapse video of sorts that has gone viral on the Internet. In the last week it has racked up close to 2 million views on Vimeo and YouTube.

“She was changing at such a rapid pace that I felt the need to document the way she looked, to keep my memories in tact,” Hofmeester said in an email to the Los Angeles Times.

The images in the video are not static – so the video lacks that creepy slow morph that we’re familiar with from people who take their picture everyday.

Hofmeester said it wasn’t always easy to get Lotte and her younger brother Vince to sit in front of the camera every week.

When they didn’t feel like it, Hofmeester said he’d ask them questions about their lives, trying to stall them until he got the shot.

Hofmeester said he decided to share the video with the world now because Lotte is entering puberty. “She’ll be changing a lot over the coming years, but primarily on the inside,” he said.

But of course, he will continue filming.

LADY GA-GA SAID SHE WAS RAPED DURING INTERVIEW ON THE HOWARD STERN SHOW

Lady Gaga has opened up about  she was raped as a 19-year-old.

The Born This Way singer made the revelations during a chat with Howard Stern on his radio show. The topic came up after the host asked Gaga about her performance of Swine at the SXSW in March.

During the song, “vomit painter” Millie Brown spewed neon green liquid all over the pop star.

“I wrote a song called Swine. The song is about rape. The song is about demoralisation,” she said as she explained the concept of the infamous routine.

“The song is about rage and fury and passion, and I had a lot of pain that I wanted to release.”

Howard asked the 28-year-old if she was alluding to a situation that had actually occurred in her personal life. Gaga initially tried to move the conversation on, but eventually made the startling admission.

“I went through some horrific things that I’m able to laugh [at] now, because I’ve gone through a lot of mental and physical therapy and emotional therapy to heal over the years. My music’s been wonderful for me,” she revealed.

“But, you know, I was a shell of my former self at one point. I was not myself. To be fair, I was about 19. I went to Catholic school and then all this crazy stuff happened, and I was going, “Oh, is this just the way adults are?’…I was very naive.”‘

The Applause songstress added that shock stopped her from being affected by the incident in the initial aftermath. In fact, she believed it was at least four or five years before the ordeal really hit her.

Asked if she had ever confronted the rapist, a music producer 20 years her senior, she said: ‘I think it would terrify me. It would paralyse me.

‘I saw him one time in a store and I was so paralysed by fear. Because it wasn’t until I was a little bit older that I went, “Wow, that was really messed up.”‘

“It hit me so hard. I was so traumatised by it that I was like, ‘Just keep going.’ Because I just had to get out of there,” she said.

“[But] I don’t want to be defined by it. I’ll be damned if somebody’s gonna say that every creatively intelligent thing that I ever did is all boiled down to one d**khead who did that to me,” she said firmly.

“I’m going to take responsibility for all my pain looking beautiful. All the things that I’ve made out of my strife, I did that.”

‘THE ROYAL FLYING PLASTIC SURGEON DOCTOR’ [COSMETIC SERVICE] Comes to you.

Increasing demand for Botox and tummy tucks in regional areas has prompted cosmetic surgeons to offer fly-in fly-out services to country towns.

The cosmetic medicine industry is booming in Australia, with some the uptake of some procedures increasing 15 per cent per year.

Regional residents are as enthusiastic as their city counterparts about getting cosmetic lifts, with FIFO cosmetic doctors touring small towns and renting surgical rooms to treat patients.

Dr Ehsan Jadoon has a practice in Perth but spends much of his time doing two-day visits to centres like Alice Springs, Broome and Esperance.

“The services we offer are not generally available locally, so patients would have to fly to Perth or Darwin to have a procedure done,” he said.

“So that’s how it all started. MORE HERE

Australian woman hits 108 years of age & has never been sick.This is her story.

Esther Penn 108 yr old woman image www.goodgirlsgo.com

An inspirational Melbourne woman who has just celebrated her 108th birthday has shared her secrets to a long, healthy and happy life.

Esther Penn is believed to be the oldest Australian woman still living independently in her own home at Forest Hill.

She has never been sick and still manages to tackle everyday domestic chores, including looking after her 44-year-old great nephew, Jason.

“She still gets around,” Jason told 7News reporter Jackie Quist. “She’s been cooking for over 100 years and she still cleans up after me everyday.”

She’s also a dab hand with an iron.

“I’m probably the only person in the world that has his underpants ironed by a 108-year-old,” Jason joked.

A retired dressmaker, Esther has never smoked or drunk alcohol, and attributes her longevity to healthy eating as a child.

The eldest of three, Esther never married.

“I never found anyone I liked and I was too busy looking,” she said.

She still remembers the introduction of the motor car, as well as both world wars, and her war effort in a munitions factory.

“I was filling little shells for aircraft,” she said.

As healthy as she was then, Esther has no intention of ever going into a nursing home.

She believes a cup of tea and lots of laughter will keep the doctor at bay.

Runaway brides from Vietnam vanish after marrying men from poor area in rural China

Chinese police are seeking more than 100 Vietnamese brides who vanished after marrying bachelors from a poor rural area, with reports saying an organised ring could be behind the disappearances.

The grooms, from Quzhou in northern Hebei province, were introduced to the women by Wu Meiyu, a Vietnamese bride who had lived in the area for 20 years, the China Daily said.

Ms Wu, who received payments of more than 100,000 yuan ($19,000) if the introductions were successful, also disappeared with the 100 women, the report added.

The state-run newspaper cited an unnamed local official saying an organised ring might be involved in the mass disappearance.

“With the advanced communication techniques of today, it’s easy for all the brides to leave at the same time,” the man told the newspaper.

Buying wives from south-east Asian countries has become increasingly common in some of China’s poor rural areas, where a gender imbalance has developed due to a traditional preference for sons and the country’s family planning policies.

Across China, 118 males are born for every 100 females, according to government statistics.

In some rural areas men can be expected to own a house, car, and have considerable wealth before they can attract a Chinese bride, a cost the China Daily said could reach 400,000 yuan.

But with many unable to do so, the trade in overseas brides, which is often linked to human trafficking, has grown in China.

Madonna’s topless photos are a triumph for all women – whatever their age

Madonna, as she appears in a shoot for the latest issue of Interview magazine.

There’s no denying it. The last few weeks have seen the cup of celebrity naked flesh runneth over. And I’m not even talking about that jungle reality show.

Today, it emerged that the ‘Queen of Pop’ has posed, topless, for a spread in the December issue of Interview magazine. Wearing a bustier and leather glove, she reclines on a satin cushion, her hand to her forehead, her boobs bared.

It’s styled as a romantic image – very different to the black and white Knightley shot (which appeared in the same publication back in September), where she stared confidently down the camera, hands on hips.

At the time, I wrote a piece defending Knightley’s right to be photographed topless. It was, I said, a feminist statement from a woman who’d been roundly criticised for having her modest cleavage digitally enhanced on film posters. Here she was, in all her natural glory. Hur-rah.

Her detractors didn’t agree. Who, they cried, wanted to see the actresses ‘fried eggs’? Some, unkind, commentators referred to her appearance in the Pirates of the Caribbean film ‘Dead Man’s Chest’.

Now, just weeks later, Madonna is under fire for committing the same offence.

How dare she? At 56, no less. I’d wager you won’t see a report today that doesn’t mention her age alongside her cup size.

‘Still got it!’ a few have already trilled.

Groan. They’ve utterly missed the point.

Madonna’s decision to pose topless has nothing to do with showing-off her wrinkle-free cleavage – nor male titillation. That she’s an older woman is powerful, yes. But, to me, it seems pretty clear that this is far from a pop star trying to prove that she’s ‘still hot’ in her fifties.

keira-knightley image www.goodgirlsgo.com

Madonna’s age is just a convenient stick to beat her with. It’s an easy reason for critics to cry ‘put ’em away’ without, on the surface, seeming sexist.

Because there’s always something, isn’t there? Always a reason that a woman’s body isn’t deemed ‘suitable’. Breasts too small a la Knightley? No thanks. A middle-aged pop star? What the hell was she thinking?

Of course, Madonna is no stranger to nudity. Frankly, she’s been taking her clothes off for decades. Her decision to pose for Interview is, then, perhaps less surprising than Knightley’s. But it’s no less powerful a statement. Here is a woman still at the top of her industry, after almost 40 years. She’s weathered numerous musical trends and managed to stay relevant. Why shouldn’t she pose with her breasts exposed?

After all, she pretty much started it.

Indeed, just a couple of weeks ago, Madonna posted a censored topless picture of herself from the Nineties, in response to theimages of Kim Kardashian’s oiled, nude backside in Papermagazine.

‘It’s confusing,’ she wrote. ‘Nipples are considered forbidden and provocative but exposing your ass is not. #flummoxed’ (sic).

Here is a clear indication that Madonna knew her latest photo shoot would shock. Let’s face it, she’s saying, topless pictures of famous women always have.

We might be used to seeing pictures of seeing flat chested models in fashion magazines (think Kate Moss on the beach, or backstage at a catwalk show).

But a model’s body is a commodity – it’s the vehicle she’s using to sell products. For stars such as Madonna and Knightly, it’s different. They are selling their own image, not someone elses. Choosing to bear their breasts is a feminist statement, not a requirement. They are saying: ‘Here I am. Take me, or leave me’.

Of course, Madonna and Knightley both have exceptional body types compared to us mere mortals. But, the fact remains. When it all gets too ‘real’, we simply can’t handle it.

There’s undeniably an element of desire wrapped-up in all this. Knightley was criticised for being ‘unfeminine’. Small boobs aren’t traditionally seen as covetable. Neither are those of an older woman.

So, isn’t it a blessing that we have these strong, famous women brave enough to turn unrealistic thinking on its head and show us that the female body comes in many forms?

Madonna is flying in the face of what the naked woman ‘should’ look like. She’s controlling her own image, just as she’s always done. Her attitude? Just because she’s in her fifties, why should she hide away?

The sugary pink cardigan that exposes her breasts in the Interviewpicture, says it all. ‘I’m not ready to button-up like a little old lady. Thanks all the same’.

We all should applaud her (preferably while wearing cut-off PVC gloves) for it.
