Brazilian model dies after undergoing cosmetic treatment

Raquel Santos, who was a finalist in a popular beauty pageant in Brazil, died of cardiac arrest after undergoing a facelift, in a country where coexists a cult of the body and lack of medical supervision treatments.

Santos, 28, died Monday after undergoing two treatments to correct facial wrinkles, in the city of Niteroi, in the state of

Santos, mother of two, was a finalist last contest “Musa of Brazil”, which every year chooses a voluptuous Brazilian woman advertising image as the South American country.

The causes of death of Santos are still being determined, but her husband said his death is most likely linked to the use of substances to enhance his image as Potenay, a stimulant used in horses to develop the leg muscles , Santos used regularly.

“I was fascinated by the image, the carnival, the gym. I always wanted more. I thought, pretty or ugly, it was already perfect. But she always wanted more”, said her husband, Gilberto Azevedo, during the wake.

Brazil leads the world ranking in the number of cosmetic surgeries and in a society obsessed with aesthetics, each year there are several tragic cases as a result of aggressive treatments to enhance the image beyond the medical control.

In 2015, the event presenter Andressa Urach shocked Brazil after the girl, 27, was on the verge of losing his life for deployed the equivalent of 500 milliliters of hydrogel in each leg in order to increase the volume of their buttocks.

Here campaign aims to overcome the stigma of dementia

After learning that she had dementia, Phyllis Fehr did something that might shock you — she decided to take up archery. Fehr is part of a growing number of Canadians who are challenging the stigma of dementia, proving that life isn’t over after you get the dreaded diagnosis.

The Alzheimer Society is hoping to shake up perceptions about dementia with its new campaign #StillHere. Up to 15 per cent of Canadians over 65 are living with dementia, yet the stigma of the disease prevents many from getting the help they need.

The Alzheimer Society released a new video with the hope of helping people better understand the real experiences of people with dementia rather than making assumptions.

“They treat me differently. They act like I don’t understand. When people find out I have Alzheimer’s, it’s as if I’m suddenly not there,” says the video’s narrator. “I’m still here.”

Fehr admits in an interview with CBC that she was depressed upon hearing her diagnosis. “Things go through your head,” she explained. “You kind of go, ‘Oh, what is my life going to be like? What do I have left with my life?’ And I would be the first person to admit, you kind of get a little depressed.”

But Fehr decided to be proactive about her health, taking up archery in an attempt to keep her mind sharp. “I figured the more that I can do, the more I concentrate, the better things are going to be. This is something that I can do and do well.”

Often people living with dementia find that others no longer view them the same way, and they lose valuable social support systems.

“People with dementia face discrimination and social rejection. Often they are ignored. People will address their care partner even when the person with dementia is standing right there. They may lose friends because of misconceptions about abilities,” Pia Kontos, a senior scientist at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, told CBC.

According to Nanos Research, almost half (47 per cent) of Canadians believe it’s not possible to live well with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Women are more concerned about the effects of dementia than men are, with 64 per cent of females worrying that they can no longer live well with the disease.

“It’s disempowering, this stigma,” Kontos said. “It’s demeaning, and when they internalize that stigma, they edit themselves into silence for fear of being judged, so they themselves are disengaging, and that has really detrimental consequences for quality of life and for their well-being.”

Hopefully this new campaign will go viral, helping people with dementia get the understanding and respect they deserve.

Despite having briefly dated French Montana, Kardashian had yet to finalize her divorce from Odom. In Jenner’s opinion, this meant that there was still a chance.

Shailene Woodley’s forsaking her young fans for dark HBO show

Actress Shailene Woodley owes her career to young adult audiences. Her big break came with ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and she’s exploded on the big screen in movies like Divergent, Insurgent and The Fault in Our Stars. But as the star grows up, her film and television choices are maturing with her.

This reality became clear on Saturday, when it was announced that Woodley will be joining Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon in the short prom dresses at adaptation of Big Little Lies. The limited series is based on Liane Moriarty’s novel about a friendship between three mothers whose children attend kindergarten together. Woodley’s participation in the series was confirmed by Kidman during an interview at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit.

Variety describes Big Little Lies as a “darkly comic drama,” and with themes of bullying, intimate partner violence and murder, it is a major departure from the teen melodrama and adventure stories that have built much of Woodley’s career. Though some fans might be worried that the actress is leaving her base behind, fear not: She is still slated to star in Allegiant, the third film in The Divergent Series, which is scheduled to hit theaters next March.

However, it’s important to note that Big Little Lies is not a one-off choice for Woodley. In fact, it appears to be part of a larger career shift for her; next spring, she will costar opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Oliver Stone’s film Snowden, playing Lindsay Mills, Edward Snowden’s girlfriend. Woodley appears to be cultivating her career in a similar vein as Jennifer Lawrence’s, with a healthy balance of teen romances and big-budget franchises alongside character dramas and dark, adult stories.

Woodley keeps her social media presence to a minimum, so she has yet to share her own news and updates about her involvement in Big Little Lies. Curious fans should keep their eyes on her Twitter profile, however — production on the series starts in January, so she might be sharing more at that time. And while a specific premiere date has yet to be set, viewers should expect to see Big Little Lies showing up on HBO later in 2016.
