Many Australian citizens love Bath and Body Works but unfortunately they do not ship to Australia.
Barneys New York and The Walt Disney Co. are teaming up on a holiday campaign, which transforms classic Disney characters into bony supermodels.
On November 14th, 2012, Barneys' Madison Avenue store will unleash a store display featuring Disney characters, like Minnie Mouse, as rail-thin models. Children, most of all, are greatly influenced by Disney characters.
In a study on fifth graders, 10 year old girls and boys told researchers they were dissatisfied with their own bodies after watching a music video by Britney Spears or a clip from the TV show "Friends".

Build A Body Kid's Fitness, Inc. (BABKF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting the childhood obesity epidemic in the USA. Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese.

Just think about an X-ray and what they give you when they do the scan and why they cover what they are not after.
The idea of having to either use the body scanner or be denied travel is against human rights.
Passengers, especially children, should have the right to have an opt-out system like some American airports do. To chose between the full body scanner, or a pat-down or a strip-search in serious cases.
This is basic human rights.
At Virgin Radio we are proudly Canadian.
We believe everyone deserves a chance, innocent til proven guilty and all that!
