Today’s Lady News: 14-Year-Old Girl Can Spell “Cymothichous” (And You Can’t)

  • Sukanya Roy, 14, won the Scripps National Spelling Bee last night. Sukanya is the 46th female to win and the fourth consecutive Indian-American. Sukanya’s winning word was “cymothichous,” which is Greek for “wavy-haired.” Congratulations! [The Mary Sue]
  • Melinda Hernandez, 30, was a juror in the controversial trial that acquitted NYPD’s “rape cops” last week. A self-described feminist, Hernandez spoke with Women’s eNews about how the jury came to their “not guilty” verdict and her anguish that there was not enough evidence to put the cops behind bars. “I was a juror and I am a feminist. This was devastating to me,” Hernandez said. “But I had to do my job and be fair and impartial. A person is innocent until proven guilty. The burden — and it is a burden — remains on the victim. Perhaps if there were women demonstrating outside the courthouse every day it may have helped the jurors be more aware and more conscious of their verdicts. Who knows?” [Womens eNews]

Obviously, most stretchy fabrics would work, but there are also more structured shapes that would be fashionable and comfortable for a pregnant belly. Check out the looks I found, and those of you who have been pregnant before, please tell us how you tackled keeping your baby bump on trend.

Disorder Of The Day: Involuntary Emotional Expression Disorder

In the past, I’ve spent weeks obsessing over pica, rickets, and scurvy. What can I say? Unusual afflictions fascinate my inner science geek. Today, I am busy learning all there is to know about Involuntary Emotional Expression Disorder, sometimes known as pseudobulbar affect. This is when you have an extremely inappropriate and uncontrollable emotional reaction — like hysterical laughter at a funeral or sobbing after a joke. This is not like chuckling when someone trips and falls; I think that’s just standard human inappropriateness to laugh when someone bites it. This is much worse. Sufferers describe these emotional outbursts as sudden and unpredictable, almost seizure-like. This must be such a difficult disorder disorder to have all the time, but especially if you are on a first date. Yikes. [Cracked] Keep reading »
