Shannen Doherty Share Emotional Pics of Breast Cancer Battle

Shannen Doherty, best known for her 4-year stint in the original Beverly Hills, 90210 in the 1990s, has posted a series of emotional photos on Instagram that show her shaving her head as part of her ongoing battle with breast cancer.
In the photo series are her mother and her friend Anne, who helped her cut her hair and provide emotional support
Her posts have 75,000 total likes on Instagram, and about 5,000 comments.
Doherty has said she would get a mastectomy if needed.
Although Doherty has been in treatment for breast cancer since March 2015, news of her diagnosis first came to light in August in a lawsuit against her former business managers.
Doherty claims that her former business managers are responsible for making her condition worse because they did not pay her Screen Actors Guild insurance coverage for 2014, delaying her diagnosis and treatment.

Good Day #GoodNews! - Woman Sues Low Point in Life to Start Inspirational Magazine

Sarah Dubbeldam was at a low point in her life. She was 23, her boyfriend had just broken up with her and she wasn't happy with her career progress.
She took that dissatisfaction as inspiration to start a new magazine, called Darling, designed to speak to women like her. Its mission: to improve women's self-esteem by focusing on character and dignity instead of obsessing on body image.
Dubbeldam, who did some modeling work before launching the magazine, wants Darling to present realistic portraits of what it is to be a woman and refuses to Photoshop anyone on its pages.
"By not Photoshopping women, we are saying women are not in need of alteration in any way shape or form and that they are beautiful the way they are. That in itself just makes a huge statement."
The magazine features women of all sizes, ages and ethnicities.
"We need to broaden the definition of beauty," says Dubbeldam.

NBA Moves All-Star Game Out of North Carolina Over LGBT Law

The NBA is preparing to announce the relocation of the 2017 All-Star weekend from Charlotte in response to the state's anti-LGBT legislation
The law, which was passed by the state's general assembly during a special session in March, bans local municipalities from enacting non-discriminatory ordinances designed to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says "We were frankly hoping that they would make some steps toward modifying the legislation, and frankly I was disappointed that they didn't."
Citing the league's core principles of diversity and inclusion, Silver said "Where we choose to celebrate something like an All-Star Game, those values should be honored."

Brazil Foils Olympic Games Terrorist Plot

Brazilian authorities arrested 10 people loyal to the Islamic State who were believed to be planning attacks during the Summer Olympics
Investigators say those arrested were discussing targets in Rio, which leads them to believe they were planning attacks during the Olympics.
The group was part of a "novice cell" and "they went from simply making comments about the Islamic State and terrorism to preparatory acts."
The arrested suspects were in nine different states and are accused of having made contact online with the self-proclaimed Islamic State. The suspects are all Brazilians.
