Regardless of what size you are, the message of this new full-figured lingerie campaign, and the French legislation passed last Friday, is clear: sexy doesn’t have to be just one size.

Let’s start with the new ad campaign everyone is buzzing about this morning, Lane Bryant’s #ImNoAngel.

The ads are clearly a dig at Victoria’s Secret, which caps its sizes at XL and 40DDD and has promoted their lingerie using super-thin models alongside the caption, “Perfect Body.” The company has caught flack about this for years, and Lane Bryant’s latest splash capitalizes on the public push for a more positive message, much like The Dove Campaign For Real Beauty did in 2004.

“Our ‘I’m No Angel’ cam

Many homebound elderly people are deprived of the simple joys of puppy love, but this heartbreaking fact is about to change for some American seniors.

Lacking the financial means or physical ability to care for a pet meant they had to give up the companionship they enjoyed for so many years. Fortunately, a nonprofit called Caregiver Canines is officially going national, and will be connecting four-legged visitors with seniors in Texas and Pennsylvania beginning this week.

After a successful six-year run using therapy dogs–many of them, adopted rescue pups–in New Jersey, the group has partnered with the National Volunteer Caregiving Network to launch pilot programs around the country. C

Kaitlin Nguyen from California, was born with a lymphatic malformation, which caused a large deformity on her face, making it difficult for her to talk and eat, Dr. Gregory Levitin, director of the Vascular Birthmark Center at Mount Sinai Roosevelt in New York, told The Huffington Post. The 3-year-old's parents reached out to Levitin to have it removed but the family had trouble covering the high surgery costs.

So, a generous anonymous donor decided to fund it.

The 3-year-old underwent a successful surgery on Tuesday, and is now acclimating to her new life.

“I wanted to say thank you to the donor who made this happen for Kaitlin," the 3-year-old's mother told ABC News, before the su

Decades after graduating high school, a man gave back to a teacher who left a big impression on him.

Almost forty years after she began teaching, Marilyn Mecham received a surprise from one of her first students, Kevin Perz. The former Missouri teacher, who is now 62, recently told the Lincoln Journal Star that Perz called her in January to simply say thanks -- and then sent her a note and a $10,000 check.

"I enjoyed your class so much. You gave your students latitude and respect. In turn, you were showered with respect and appreciation." Perz wrote in the note. "You were the B-E-S-T teacher EVER!!"

The moving gesture left the 62-year-old overcome with emotion.

"When I saw the ch

A nonagenarian just celebrated his birthday, and he was clearly "lovin' it."

Bill Dudley, from Connah's Quay in Wales, recently turned 90, and to commemorate the milestone, he had a birthday party on Wednesday at his place of employment -- McDonald's, BBC News reported.

The shindig, which was complete with balloons and a very appropriate McDonald's-themed cake, ended up being a delightful one for both Dudley and his coworkers.

"We are all incredibly proud to work alongside him as he's such an inspiring member of the team," said Stewart Williams, the restaurant's franchisee, according to BBC. "I look forward to celebrating his birthday again next year."

CHARLESTON, South Carolina - A white cop in North Charleston was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video was released clearly showing the officer fatally shooting an unarmed black man in the back.

33-year-old Michael T. Slager said he feared for his life because the suspect took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. The video clearly shows the officer firing eight times as 50-year-old Walter L. Scott slowly ran away.

Officer Michael Slager shot Scott eight times as Scott has his back to him and is running away. It appears that Scott was unarmed.

Slager is charged with murder, the FBI is investigating, and once again a police-involved shooting has continued

Now that Windows 10 development is in full swing, with the new Spartan browser and new Technical Preview builds appearing on a regular basis, let’s take a step back for a moment and address one of the most confusing things about the next version of Windows. When Microsoft announced its newest operating system, the surprise was not that it was coming, but that Windows would be skipping 9 and heading straight to 10. When asked about Windows 10’s name, Microsoft never gave a clear answer. So why, exactly, is Windows 10 getting the nod instead of 9?

Version numbers, schmersion numbers

You may remember that between Windows 3 and Windows 7, versions of W

Kevin Bollaert, 27, of San Diego, California was charged and found guilty of conspiracy, identity theft and extortion, all relating to his ownership of the now offline websites Ugotposted.com and its sister site Changemyreputation.com.

Bollaert created the site Ugotposted.com which allowed users to upload explicit photos of girls. The practice is known as “revenge porn” as most of the girls who were pictured had scorned the men who posted them. What made Bollaert’s site different to other “revenge porn” sites was that uploaders to Ugotposted had to include explicit details about the girls in question, including names, addresses and Facebook links. The website at times had up to 10,000 ima

ALIQUIPPA, Pennsylvania - Part of the “American Dream” to many of us is home ownership. They are losing their property all too often because of heartless, insensitive laws made by uncaring politicians or county officials.

It's getting more expensive to live in America and when you retire, you had better have enough to pay you property taxes because the county will take it. Much, if not most of Forest Park in the Tualatin Mountains had been owned by people who could not pay their taxes, seized and given to the city of Portland.

Land of the free.

Even if you pay off your mortgage in full, own your home outright, you can easily

We landed on Mars over 11 years ago with our robot mars mission, Opportunity. And what an opportunity is was.

Opportunity landed on the Eagle Crater on January 2004 and accomplished this marathon in 3,968 Martian days or Sols. Available on the NASA site is the path that the vehicle crawled along since 2004. It passed through important Martian craters such as the Eagle, Endurance, Victoria and Endeavour. Last year, the robot became the champion in the longest distance traveled on an extraterrestrial surface by defeating the former Soviet Union’s moon rover called Lunokhod 2.

“This is the first time any human enterprise has exceeded the distance of a marathon on the surface of another wo
