Hudson Kors

Kate Hudson and Michael Kors have teamed up to support a UN campaign to end world hunger.  The Watch Hunger Stop campaign, launched in 2013 by the World Food Program, feeds more than five million kids annually through its School Meals Program.  Kors, recently named a Global Ambassador, is introducing two unisex watches from the Bradshaw Watch collection this October.  Proceeds from each sale will feed 100 children.  Hudson will aid Kors in thelaunch as well as the promotion.  “Not only does she have a unique star quality but she also brings an incredible amount of generosity and a can-do attitude to a cause that is extremely important to me personally,” Kors said in statement, adding, “I’m grateful to work alongside her and WFP to make a real change.”

Low-Rise-JeansAn article in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry (entitled, “Fashion victim:  rhabdomyolysis and bilateral perennial and tibial neuropathies as a result of squatting in ‘skinny jeans'”) revealed that skinny jeans are potentially dangerous to your health.  An unidentified woman, 35, was treated in the emergency room at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in Adelaide, Australia, for severe nerve damage after helping a family member move, while wearing skinny jeans.  Doctors discovered that the repetitive act of squatting in tight jeans had lead to compartment syndrome, a condition caused by extreme pressure on the blood vessels within a muscle compartment, causing swelling and considerable pain.  This is also a potential risk to those wearing compression garments such as Spanx, tights, and various forms of activewear.  According to the article’s co-author, Dr. Thomas Kimber, a neurologist at Royal Adelaide Hospital and the University of Adelaide, “If she’d been wearing loose, flowing trousers, the muscles could have swelled outward.”  However, in this case, the swollen muscles “had nowhere to go, except down onto the nerves and blood vessels.”
