is it okay to wear the same outfit as my 20-year-old daughter?


open any fashion glossy and you'll be hit with a barrage of age-appropriate style rules. don't wear a hem line that's too high. you can't wear that top because the neckline is too low. a leather pencil skirt, at your age? when many of us start experimenting with fashion, aged fifteen or sixteen, we're often told that our outfit of choice is too outlandish - 'go back upstairs and change, tone it down!' then, 30 years later, we seem to hit the same brick wall - 'are you really going out in that?' there's very little advice out there that speaks directly to women of my age. and when you do stumble across a blog or magazine that's supposedly aimed at you, they can be quite patronising - suggesting ranges that have been designed with the more mature lady in mind. time to tear up the rule book s






it makes sense that dogs prefer soft rock


when i was young my family had a dog, owen, who we decided had terrible taste in . actually, terrible doesn't quite describe it right. it was more that owen, we believed, cared not a bit for what was hip, cool or alternative.owen's prime dog years were the early '90s, but owen — a golden retriever with a lazy eye — had no time for grunge or hip-hop or indie bands. why listen to nirvana or public enemy or the replacements, rec ed owen, when you could tune in to an easy-listening station playing the best power ballads of the '80s? dogs relaxed more when listening to the likes of toto. p o: michael muccii can't remember how it started, this belief owen was a dag. but we all ascribe human attributes to our pets. and at some point one of my siblings put a list up on the fridge headed "owen's fa






a bus-sized asteroid is set to whiz by earth


earth-ending apocalypse movies always start with sky-gazers spotting an asteroid that nobody knew about until it was too late. if the speedy space rock called 2017 bs32 was just 100,000 miles closer to our planet than it is, we’d have been in for an interesting afternoon, but thankfully the bus-sized body will just cruise by our planet instead of causing us any headaches. what’s potentially worrisome, however, is that scientists only just spotted the rock, and it’s now the fourth asteroid to come within sniffing distance of our planet so far this year.don’t miss: the iphone 7’s missing headphone jack: the scandal that wasn’tthe asteroid, which was only just discovered on january 30th, will be closer to the earth than the moon is when it makes its closest approach at approximately 3:23 pm e






red planet’s interior may not churn much


an enduring source of magma on mars fueled volcanic eruptions for billions of years, clues inside a rock flung from the red planet reveal.the newfound rock belongs to a batch of meteorites called shergottites that originated from the same martian volcanic system, researchers report february 1 in science a nces. but the new rock is considerably older than its counterparts. while previously discovered shergottites solidified from martian magma between 427 million and 574 million years ago, the new rock formed around 2.4 billion years ago, chemical analyses show.such a wide range of ages means that a volcanic system on mars churned out rocks from a stable source of magma for nearly half of the planet’s history, says study coauthor thomas lapen, a geologist at the university of houston. that e

geog hy - is it possible for an ocean to have a river flowing from it into a lak


tl;dr: yes, but only if meeting very specific conditions. i would however actually encourage this for the unique thematic effect.if the water flowing from the ocean into the lake either:a) evaporates at the same or higher rate than the inflow.orb) continues elsewhere underground (at such rate) until it spews from some warm water geiser.additionally the inflow from the ocean will increase over time as more ground is dragged along from the riverbed and ocean. this inflow of ground would be able to fill the underground geiser tunnels if it keeps increasing.if you really want the salt water river for thematic effects, then do so it adds to the uniqueness of your story, but if i were the one writing i'd let the water come trough a rock based canyon(caused by earthquake back in time) into a lowe

m ive lava stream exploding into ocean in hawaii


honolulu –  a dramatic "firehose" stream of molten lava continued to shoot out of a sea cliff wednesday on hawaii island, splashing into the pacific ocean below and exploding upon impact.the m ive kilauea flow is coming from a lava tube at the kamokuna ocean entry on the southeast side of the big island. the lava is gushing from a tube that was exposed when a huge, 26-acre lava delta collapsed into the ocean at the site on new year's eve. the collapse of the newly formed land triggered m ive explosions and giant waves in the area.the lava stream, dubbed a "firehose" flow because it shoots lava outward from the source, started out as a drizzle coming down the sea cliffs after the new year collapse, but has recently increased in intensity. the molten lava is now arching out and falling about

floyd mayweather couldn't book drake for a big gig in d.c.


the more things fall apart around drake, the better he comes out looking. while performing in london on wednesday, the “fake love” singer literally saw the stage collapse around him and recovered nicely by finishing the show with special guest travis scott, then telling the sold-out crowd that he’d reimburse them for their tickets. but it was a deal that fell through two weeks ago that may have saved drake a lot of headaches. confidential has learned that the canadian superstar was contacted about performing at a party in washington, d.c., that coincided with president trump's inauguration, but he decided against it, much to the dismay of retired fighter floyd mayweather jr., who was hosting the event.see it: travis scott falls off stage at drake’s london concert “the theme was ‘retro to
