The security chief of a Mexican border town has decided to ban women from wearing miniskirts, and to impose fines on men who parade the streets of his city in female attire. Javier Agudelo is a retired general and now the top security officer in Ciudad AcuA±a, a city of 140,000 residents across the Texas border. According to Agudelo women can use miniskirts and "provactive" attire to engage in prostitution, to provoke fights, or to lure kidnapping victims. Agudelo's moral crusade has, of course, been rejected by local LGBT community leaders who say that police in Ciudad AcuA±a already discriminate against transgender men.
Agudelo himself was under investigation for the murder of Jose Eduardo Moreira, the son of a former state governor. Agudelo, by the way, is not the only public official in Mexico who has proposed a miniskirt ban. Speaking of Hall of Fame, every year WWE inducts a celebrity who has been a part of the WWE. The talent and potential is there, but tweaks to their character and story will make a world of difference. The man behind the corporate wrestling machine we enjoy today has been absent for the last couple of Raw's and Smackdowns.
Our natural instincts with numbers will be "replaced by rule-based problem solving," and that can be a lot harder, psychologist Melissa Kibbe of Johns Hopkins University said in a telephone interview. Kibbe and psychologist Lisa Feigenson, director of the Johns Hopkins Laboratory for Child Development, put 136 children, age 4-6, through 136 experiments in a Baltimore science museum to see if the preschoolers could solve a basic algebraic problem -- finding the quantity of "X," an unknown value. The purpose of the experiments was to broaden the understanding of something we are all born with, known as the "approximate number system," but also referred to as "number sense" in the scientific literature. Humans, like many animals, have an inborn ability to determine the number of objects in our immediate environment. Kibbe said the approximate number system probably makes it possible for us to learn how to count and eventually do math, including algebra and trig and all those other fun things.
The first two of five experiments tested the kids' ability to understand symbols, like words or numbers, to solve a simple problem. The three remaining experiments used stuffed animals as symbols and the kids were asked to figure out roughly how many tokens the animals contributed to another pile of tokens. In fact, the kids got it right about three-fourths of the time, so they really understood that if you add 12 tokens to a pile, the pile grows a lot more than if you add four tokens.
A couple of years ago a Johns Hopkins colleague, Justin Halberda, collected data from more than 10,000 Internet subjects, ages 11 to 85, and found that "number sense" improves during school years, but declines during old age. Interestingly, the Kibbe study found no difference in gender or in ages in the ability to "solve for the unknown quantity." That's a little surprising because many studies have shown that boys outperform girls in math after they enter school. Even though all the kids in these experiments were 4 to 6 years old, a year can be a lot to a preschooler, so it's also a little surprising that the 4-year-olds were just as good at algebra as the 6-year-olds.
CELINE DION is struggling to forgive herself for not holding her husband RENE ANGELIL in her arms as he passed away. The superstar lost her longtime manager and husband of 21 years in January following a long battle with cancer.


Celine was not by his side when he took his last breath, and the mother of three admits she will forever regret not being able to grant Rene’s final wish. Celine is slowly adjusting to life as a single mum, and she is doing her best to try to let go of the pain of her one big regret. CELINE DION has been dealt another blow as she mourns the death of her husband RENE ANGELIL – her brother is also fighting for his life. Multiple reports suggest the singer’s 59-year-old sibling Daniel is also battling cancer, and has been given days to live.
Daniel is suffering with brain, tongue and throat cancer, and his loved ones fear he may not make it through another week. A representative for the star has confirmed her brother, one of Celine’s 13 siblings, is close to death as the family gathers by his side in Montreal, Canada. Celine Dion has scrapped two of her Las Vegas residency shows following the death of her husband Rene Angelil. Dion’s former manager passed away at his home in Las Vegas on Thursday, just two days before his 74th birthday, following a long battle with throat cancer. The Canadian singer took a leave of absence from her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in 2014 to look after her husband, but returned to the stage in August with his encouragement. She has now cancelled shows on Saturday and Sunday, the only dates before a scheduled break, to give herself more than a month to mourn following the death of her husband of 21 years, with whom she has three sons. A statement on her website reads, “With heavy hearts, we regret to inform you that Celine performances Saturday, Jan. The singer had previously said that resuming her residency when Angelil was still ill would be emotional, telling USA Today, “That first show, it will be fragile.
Celine Dion has promised to put her life on hold and rush to her ailing husband Rene Angelil’s side if he gets really sick, because he wants to spend his final moments in his wife’s arms. The singer has taken time out of the spotlight in recent years to care for her husband and longtime manager Angelil as he battles throat cancer, even bowing out of her Las Vegas residency at Caesars Palace last year to help him though a particularly difficult stage.
But, after encouragement from Angelil to step back on the stage, Dion returns to her post in Sin City on Thursday, and she admits the first night back will not be easy. And, as she continues to care for Angelil, Dion says she’s determined to stay strong for her husband until the end. Dion and Angelil have been married for 21 years and are parents to three sons, Rene-Charles, 14, and twins Nelson and Eddy. Celine Dion has opened up about caring for her husband Rene Angelil as he battles throat cancer, revealing she feeds him through a tube every day. Musician Celine Dion performs onstage during the UCLA Head and Neck Surgery Luminary Awards at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on January 22, 2014 in Beverly Hills, Calif. The singer, who has three sons with Angelil, recently announced that she will be heading back to the Caesars Palace stage in Las Vegas in August with a revamped show.
The full interview with Dion will air in America on Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning America. Singer Celine Dion has axed all her upcoming performances and postponed every work commitment indefinitely so she can take care of her sick husband.


The “My Heart Will Go On” hit maker canceled a series of Las Vegas concerts over July and August so she could recover from inflamed vocal cords. She was expected to resume her residency at Caesar’s Palace resort on Friday but has now scrapped all her upcoming dates at the venue and her subsequent Asian tour. Her husband and former manager, Rene Angelil, underwent surgery for throat cancer in December and Dion has chosen to fully dedicate her time to helping him with ongoing health issues. Dion was scheduled to perform in Las Vegas until the end of August and would then resume her residency in December. The singer has three young children with Angelil – Rene-Charles, 13, and twins Eddy and Nelson, 3.
Celine Dion’s husband, Rene Angelil, has stepped down as her manager after more than 30 years.
The couple announced that entertainment executive Aldo Giampaolo, who has worked alongside them for 25 years, will step in as the boss of the “Think Twice” singer’s management company Feeling Productions. Men who dress like women can hamper police investigations a€“ by allegedly disguising their identity a€” and use public bathrooms intended for the opposite sex.
Representatives of the LGBT community told local newspaper El Zocalo that they are planning protests against the new "security measures," and are seeking advice from Mexico's National Commission on Human Rights. For several years, the Zetas gang has used this city to ship drugs into the United States, and in 2012 almost half of the city's police officers were fired after they failed to pass anti-corruption background checks. He was cleared of charges in the killing however, which is thought to have been a revenge attack from the Zetas on the Moreira family. Preschoolers can do basic algebra -- and we do mean very basic -- through gut instincts that we share with a lot of other animals, but by the time we get fully involved in the educational process algebra will become a lot more difficult. The children got the right answer 46 percent of the time, which was no better than chance since there were only two choices. They didn't need to know the number: They just had to figure out if the animal had added a few tokens, or a lot. Probably because the researchers used stuffed animals and common tokens, like buttons and coins, instead of words, spoken or written, and algebraic equations. That suggests "number sense" begins incredibly early, and remains with us for a long, long time.
The miniskirt ban in Ciudad AcuA±a, however, seems to be the first that will affect all of the residents of a city, even when they are not at work. It would have been convenient to know if the predator confronting a hunter-gather was one wolf, or a pack of wolves. I covered him because he was very cold, I took one of his bathrobes and I put one on him and one on me.
