Men with 'Dad Bods' are Happier and More Attractive to Women, New Survey Finds

Men with 'Dad Bods' are Happier and More Attractive to Women, New Survey Finds The study claims that 23 million men in the United States claim to have a dad bod – 71 percent of whom believe it is universally accepted. But other reports estimate higher. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest that 32 percent of American men age 20 to 34 are overweight, 40 percent of 35 to 44-year-olds, and 41 percent of 45 to 54-year-old men. That means there are almost 28 million dad bods in the U.S. A "dad bod" is considered a balance between someone who works out but isn't exactly counting calories with weekend social activities keeping their bodies at a relative median.

Penn State coach James Franklin opened his weekly press conference with an emotional response to a letter disparaging one of his players — a letter viewed as racist by team members and social media followers.

He never actually mentioned it or the Penn State fan who sent it. The letter condemned the long, flowing dreadlocks of junior safety Jonathan Sutherland, who is black.

Franklin spoke for nearly three minutes about the values of diversity and togetherness created by college football at Penn State and then about Sutherland.

Men Who Have Facial Plastic Surgery Appear to Be More Attractive, Likeable and Trustworthy

Men Who Have Facial Plastic Surgery Appear to Be More Attractive, Likeable and Trustworthy "The tendency to judge facial appearance is likely rooted in evolution," explained a scientist who carried out the study.

Only after that did he take questions and discuss the big upcoming game at Iowa.

"The football that I know and love brings people together," Franklin said, starting.

"It embraces differences, black, white, brown, Catholic, Jewish or Muslim. Long hair, short hair, no hair. They're all in that locker room together. Teams all over this country are the purest form of humanity that we have.

"We don’t judge. We embrace differences. We live, we learn, we grow, we support and we defend each other. We're a family.

"PSU football brings people together like very few things on this planet."

Man donates kidney to protest ban on blood donation for gay men

Man donates kidney to protest ban on blood donation for gay men A Virginia man reached out and donated a kidney to a stranger after learning that he would no longer be eligible to give blood donations because of his sexuality. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Barton Lynch, 24, told The Washingtonian that he recently entered into a same-sex relationship, a decision he learned would exclude him from donating blood to the Red Cross in the U.S.

Some Nittany Lions shared the letter on social media. Penn State officials quickly condemned the letter.

It was first posted on Twitter Monday evening by Penn State defensive tackle Antonio Shelton. Later, Shelton also tweeted restraint. "Please do not go on any socials attacking people. That’s not at all why I put the photo of the letter out."

Meanwhile, a Johnstown man who said he wrote the letter, still stands by its message —telling the Tribune-Democrat he never intended to be racist or culturally insensitive.

David Petersen is a 1966 Penn State graduate in speech pathology and is a former Nittany Lion football season ticket holder, according to the article. He told the Tribune-Democrat he had no idea of the uproar he had created.

The Reasons Why Married Women Cheat on Their Husbands

The Reasons Why Married Women Cheat on Their Husbands What is it that drives women into someone else’s arms, and what can spouse's do to prevent it? An infidelity researcher offers some answers.

"I would just like to see the coaches get the guys cleaned up and not looking like Florida State and Miami guys."

Soon after Shelton posted the letter, Penn State officials responded, via Twitter: "While we don’t know the source of this letter or the authenticity, obviously its content does not align with our values. We strongly condemn this message or any message of intolerance."

On Tuesday morning, Athletic Director Sandy Barbour also showed support for Sutherland via Twitter: "I stand with our Penn State student athletes and appreciate how they represent PSU in competition, in the classroom and in the community.  Their dress, tattoos, or hairstyle has no impact on my support, nor does their gender, skin color, sexuality or religion!"

7 reasons to be friends before dating someone

7 reasons to be friends before dating someone When you form a romantic relationship with someone you've been close to for quite some time, there can certainly be some special perks.

"People are going to look different, people are going to sound different, people are going to dress different. It shouldn’t be a concern," Toney said.

"We're going to ignore that and block the hate out. You can't put energy into negative things. ... We're just going to move on from this."

Sutherland is a team captain as a sophomore and a Dean's list student. He told reporters earlier this season that he's worn his long hairstyle since he was about 10 years old and it has become part of his identity.

"I'm pretty sure whoever wrote that letter," Toney said, "if they met Jonathan Sutherland, they'd want their kid to be like him."

Franklin ended his opening statement with a similar sentiment.

He called Sutherland "one of the most respected players in our program. ... He's confident, he articulate, he's intelligent, he's thoughtful. He's caring and he’s committed.

"I would be so blessed if my daughters would marry someone with his character and integrity one day."

Scientific breakthrough may eventually help blind to see.
A handful of volunteers are already seeing the promise of a new device, about 18 months into a five-year clinical study. One of those volunteers is Jason Esterhuizen. The South African lost his sight in a car accident when he was 23 years old. "Lost control of the car," Esterhuizen said. "The car hit the curve and I just hit the steering wheel and the window and went out the sunroof." Injuries from the crash left Esterhuizen in a world of total darkness. "I think in the first couple of years of being blind it was just you have to accept the fact that you're blind," he said.
