Rare insight into Michael Hutchence's daughter's life 22 years after his death

Rare insight into Michael Hutchence's daughter's life 22 years after his death Tiger Lily Hutchence has largely managed to avoid the trappings of the spotlight that tormented her famous father.  At 22 years of age, she mostly flies under the radar like any other student living in a cramped London flat. But much like her father, the late Michael Hutchence, Tiger Lily attracts an intense air of intrigue. As the daughter of the INXS lead singer and British television presenter, Paula Yates, her young life has been punctuated by loss and wrapped up in mystery. But the creator of a revealing new documentary, 'Mystify: Michael Hutchence' has offered rare insight into the woman she's become.

Younger generations seem to be developing horns in the back of their skulls due to the extended use of technology like smartphones and tablets. But the presence of the " horn -like" skull growths raise serious concerns about what extended use of phones is doing to young people's bodies.

A woodpecker’s skull is like an internal helmet to keep its brain from getting hurt. Woodpeckers’ heads are kind of like bike shocks for their brains. The bones in a woodpecker’s skull keep its brain safe and avoids concussions.

Australian researchers believe a rare phenomenon is occurring in younger generations where excessive mobile phone use appears to be creating horn-like bone spurs at the back of the head.

Dr David Shahar, a University of the Sunshine Coast musculoskeletal researcher who co-wrote a study into the phenomenon, told Today he has noticed an increase in the numbers of people with the bone formations over the last 10 years.

Humans Have Started Growing Spikes in the Back of Their Skulls Because We Use Smartphones so Much Press your fingers into the back of your skull, just above your neck. If you feel a small spike you may be among people whose body has responded to smartphone use by growing new layers of bone. The phenomenon involves what is known as an external occipital protuberance:  a growth which appears on the back of the head. David Shahar, a health scientist at the University of The Sunshine Coast, Australia, told BBC.com that in the last decade of his 20 year career he has noticed more patients have the protrusion which was once considered rare. Shahar explained to BBC.

Younger generations seem to be developing horns in the back of their skulls due to the extended use of technology like smartphones and tablets. Up to half of all young people could be developing horn -like growths in the backs of their heads, startling Australian research suggests.

“Interestingly, these type of formations were reported on first in 1875,” he said.

“Now that we see them… growing massively it’s quite surprising, particularly finding them in the young generation when large bone spurs don’t normally form before the age of 40 according to the literature.”

Mobile phones are changing the human skeleton: People spend so much time hunched over screens that 'bony spikes' are developing on the backs of our skulls

Mobile phones are changing the human skeleton: People spend so much time hunched over screens that 'bony spikes' are developing on the backs of our skulls Scientists from the University of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia, say younger people's growths are larger because they spend more time looking down at hand-held technology.

Here are eight stunning and rare natural phenomena . They even seem like out of our world, and sometimes it's hard to believe they truly exist. First, small pieces of ice started forming , then they rolled by wind and water, collected more icy snow, and the final result was giant snowballs.

Dr Shahar said he believes younger people are forming the additional bone matter because they are spending long periods of time with their head tilted forward, looking at mobile phones.

“The head doesn’t have to be necessarily just tilted, it can be forward or extended, either way when the weight of the head shifts forward, the weight of the head shifts off the bones onto the muscles, he said.

“The footprint of that insertion into the bone increases to spread the load on a greater surface area and a result of that, we see those bone formations there.”

The study conducted by Dr Sharhar and his colleague, associate professor Mark Sayers, examined the x-rays of 218 Australians aged between 18 and 30 and found that 41 per cent had grown the bone-based lumps ranging in size from 10 to 30 millimetres.

‘Rare phenomenon forming horns on young Australians’ skulls’© Supplied The spurs ranged in size from 10 to 30 millimetres and have been described as a rare phenomenon. Further testing involving MRI scans and blood examinations also ruled out that the growths found in the x-rays developed as a result of a person’s genes or inflammation of that area of the head.

“It is important to understand that, in most cases, bone spurs measure a few single millimetres and yet we found projections of 10 to 30 millimetres in the studied young population,” Dr Sharhar said in a statement.

Despite the findings, Mr Sayers said that the formations appeared to have occurred from an easily-solvable problem.

“The thing is that the bump is not the problem, the bump is a sign of sustained terrible posture, which can be corrected quite simply,” he said in a statement.
