Back when Twitter wasn't the drug all the cool kids were doing, I enlisted then-pornstar Sasha Grey -- an early tweeter -- to teach me a thing or two about how to use it. It was our first encounter, and I'm proud to say that Grey took my Twitter virginity . Saying so still gets me into clubs. When I met her recently at The Standard , we shared some laughs over that awkward-but-beautiful night, and then got down to the business at hand. That business is Neu Sex , Grey's new photography book published by Vice Books, which features the star in various states of NSFW-ness.

Impostor syndrome The impostor syndrome , sometimes called impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome , is a psychological phenomenon in which people are unable to internalize their accomplishments. Despite external evidence of their competence, those with the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved. Proof of success is dismissed as luck, timing, or as a result of deceiving others into thinking they are more intelligent and competent than they believe themselves to be. It is not an officially recognized psychological disorder , and is not among the conditions described in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders , but it has been the subject of numerous books and articles by psychologists and educators .

Why Are We So Obsessed With Natalie Portman’s Authenticity? So, Natalie Portman probably didn't do a lot of the dancing for Black Swan . And now there are rumors that she used a butt double for a swimming scene in the upcoming Your Highness . Uh oh! Sometimes movie stars can't do everything, you're saying? The dancing scandal especially is something I don't understand. To recap, Sarah Lane, the dancer who was Portman's double in the film, is saying that Portman did way less of the dancing for the film than she claimed.
RHPolitics - Page 1 of 555 I am a mother of three girls, ages 2, 6, and 8. Two of them are Sandy Hook School students – one in first grade, one in third grade. I would like to share with you our experience with Dec 14th and my feelings on gun control. My third grader has gone thru some deep grief over the loss of her siblings’ friends. She was devastated by the loss of the teachers, especially her principal, Dawn Hocksprung, whom we all loved. She is angry that this has happened, that lives were lost so tragically and that she can no longer go to her school.

Shan Nair is a British nuclear safety expert who was part of a panel that advised the European Commission on its response to the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. For almost twenty years, he worked within the UK nuclear industry for Britain’s national energy supply company analyzing both waste arising from spent nuclear fuel and also the consequences of what are called LOCAs–Loss of Coolant Accidents, which is precisely what officials are battling against at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Northern Japan. I spoke to Nair by phone to learn his thoughts on the incident. Ecocentric: In the aftermath of Chernobyl, Europe faced a radioactive cloud that drifted over the continent. Is that your concern here?

Gaddafi's Next Move: Sabotage Libya's Oil and Sow Chaos? There's been virtually no reliable information coming out of Tripoli, but a source close to the Gaddafi regime I did manage to get hold of told me the already terrible situation in Libya will get much worse. Among other things, Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities. They will start by blowing up several oil pipelines, cutting off flow to Mediterranean ports. The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya's rebellious tribes: It's either me or chaos. Two weeks ago this same man had told me the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt would never touch Libya.
Oil is the economy in Libya and oil profits have bankrolled massive investments in education and infrastructure—yet Libya lags far behind other oil-rich Arab states. Unemployment recently stood at 30 percent. People who have jobs often work only part-time. Basic commodities—including rice, sugar, flour, gasoline—were heavily subsidized by Qaddafi's government and sold for a fraction of their true cost. A 2006 article in The New Yorker described Libya's "prosperity without employment and large population of young people without a sense of purpose." What's Happening in Libya Explained
