Parents say pupils are given a snack mix, muffins, pancakes and concentrate juices for meals at school. Wallace said the ideal breakfast for a child in the morning is to have something from three of the five food groups. The nutrition facts for the drinks offered, according to the district, say: • Grams of carbohydrates in a Sun “Morning Mix-ups” apple cinnamon-flavored multigrain snack mix PAGE 04 NEWS Tuesday, May 28, 2013 Once a month, students at Andrew Jackson and Stephen Girard elementary schools receive for breakfast a bag of Sun “Morning Mix-ups” apple-cinnamon flavored snack mix, parents said. The multigrain snack of bagel buttons and oat squares has 200 calories, 7 grams of sugar, 6 grams of fat, 32 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein and 130 milligrams of sodium. No vitamins, no minerals and 16 grams of whole grain. For a drink, the kids can choose from fruit juice, chocolate or plain milk. The fruit juice has 60 calories, 15 grams of sugar, 15 milligrams of sodium and 14 grams of carbohydrates. No protein, no vitamins. Parents from the two schools are asking, “Why doesn’t the school district offer healthier options than a bag of chips and fruit punch?” The district feeds all district elementary school kids breakfast and lunch • Chocolate milk: Fat-free, low-sugar milk, 120 calories, 7 grams of added sugar, 19 grams total carbohydrate • Plain milk: 1 percent milk, 100 calories, 12 grams of carbohydrate Some parents have questioned whether the breakfast, including drinks, is healthy enough. / THINKSTOCK Quoted “Something like whole wheat toast with peanut butter and milk is going to be less expensive than a bag of Sun chips over the course of a year, most likely, and you’re getting a lot more whole food and nutrients.” Nutritionist Beth Wallace Homicide. Montco teen stabs girlfriend to death, police say A Montgomery County boy, 16, was charged with stabbing his girlfriend, 17, to death Saturday night, reports say.

Fruit juice: Contains 100 percent fruit juice from concentrate. Siller, of Royersford, was stabbed multiple times after the two argued about a broken cell phone and Siller’s nightlife. After an attempt to hide the body, Stahley emerged from the woods and told his mother he killed Siller, reports say. up to eighth grade. For many students, officials have said, this may be the only meals they eat. Some other items on the month’s meal calendar includes muffins and pancakes with syrup. One parent described the muffins as “unfrosted cupcakes.” The parent, who asked to remain anonymous, called the “Breakfast Round,” served twice a month, a “doughnut.” While fruit is mentioned several times on the menu, some parents said they have not seen it available. Beth Wallace, a nutritionist at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Rescued said in regard to the snack mix, “There are better and probably less expensive options.” “Something like whole wheat toast with peanut butter and milk is going to be less expensive than a bag of Sun chips over the course of year, most likely, and you’re getting a lot more whole foods and nutrients,” Wallace said. She said oatmeal with nuts or yogurt with fruit would be ideal. “I really think that anything in the morning is better for a child — but really to maximize the start to their day, they actually need nutrients, not just calories,” she said. Invaded 50 trapped in casino elevator Family’s cookout food stolen Firefighters rescued 50 people from several elevators that became stuck in separate incidents at Revel Casino in Atlantic City Sunday morning, reports say. The people climbed ladders through elevator shafts to safety. Two men invaded a North Philadelphia home Sunday and stole electronics, money and supplies for a Memorial Day cookout, police said. The two men stole pills, $5,000, a flatscreen TV, jewelry, two smartphones, food and drinks. METRO METRO METRO Original Content 90% of Metro’s news is produced by Metro journalists. Metro has a larger editorial staff worldwide than CNN. Fernando Gallard, school district spokesman, said, “All breakfast menus meet or exceed the federal requirements.” The snack mix “provides two bread equivalents according to the USDA required meal pattern,” Gallard said in an email. “The current meal pattern does not require whole grains. In preparation for next school year, we have enhanced our menu by providing items that contain whole grains.” TOMMY ROWAN Merger Two parishes to combine Two Bridesburg parishes, All Saints and St. John Cantius, will become one as of July 1, the Archdiocese said.

The Guardian Angels have recently seen a surge in their popularity. Volunteer crime-fighting organization the Guardian Angels has been around since the 1970s but has recently seen a new surge in popularity, as documented by reality show “Angels in Action,” which debuted last week at Philadelphia’s Comic Con. “We are seeing an uptick in people being interested, if not in joining chapters, in setting up their own in their community,” Pennsylvania coordinator Scott Koppenhofer said. “In part, that’s because of right now with the financial situation, police departments across the country just do not have the funding they had years ago. Grant money and government funding is very slim, and they’re trying to get creative with what to do. We’re finding more police departments in more cities are willing to work with us more because they need the extra help.” The show is the brainchild of the Angels and Gary Kleinman, who  for more than 20 years worked at Disney Studios, departing in 2011 as vice president of new media to Quoted “If we witness a crime, we’re obligated to follow that all the way to the court system as a witness. It’s not for everybody, but we always say you’ve got to do something in your community to make a difference. Don’t just close your blinds and stick your head in the sand.” Koppenhofer launch Web-only channel “They have had offers for TV shows before, but they wanted them to fake things, have stunt doubles — that’s not who they are. They didn’t want to compromise,” Kleinman said, noting that “Angels in Action” is shot by camcorder-wielding Guardian Angels on patrol rather than studio camera crews. “This is a real show,” he continued. “I think reality TV has given itself a black eye, because no one believes it’s real anymore.” Partially shot in Philadelphia, the first episode of “Angels in Action” details patrolling members attempting to galvanize a neighborhood around the rape and robbery of a 63-year-old woman and performing a citizens arrest on a college student seen buying drugs in Kensington. Koppenhofer said the Guardian Angels’ leadership is currently going through a “restructuring” process in Philadelphia, training new members in first aid, CPR, verbal de-escalation, citizens’ arrests and self defense in preparation for a renewed presence, which will start by targeting the area near Kensington and Somerset avenues. 2 CULTURE ALEX WIGGLESWORTH Public safety Top 3 Trending online at Police seek serial rapist 1 Man poses as Harry Styles to get girls naked 2 Chin up, America: Only 1 in 3 report very happy 3 Michael Douglas blames cancer on HPV: Can oral sex really cause cancer?

Philadelphia ranked No. 27 on the list, coming in ahead of just Sacramento, Riverside and Detroit. METRO Arrest. Delaware man charged with fifth DUI Delaware State Police on Sunday arrested Raymond Warncke, 33, and charged him with his fifth DUI offense. Investigators said Warncke was driving on South DuPont Highway shortly before 4 p.m. when a state trooper observed he wasn’t wear- ing his seat belt. After stopping him, he said he smelled an alcoholic odor. Warncke was taken into custody and allegedly found to be in possession of about 11 grams of marijuana. Police said he had four previous DUI convictions. METRO Police are looking for a “volatile” serial rapist who has since March assaulted four Germantown females, aged 12 to 17. The suspect struck on March 19, April 23, May 19 and, most recently, last Sunday. “These are all teenagers in that particular area, approached on the highway by a single perpetrator,” Capt. John Darby of the Special Victims Unit said. “He’s armed with a handgun and forces them off the highway into alleys, behind properties and, most recently, into a recreation center, where a sexual assault does take place.” Police are asking anyone with information to come forward before the situation escalates further. “It’s a dangerous situation here,” Darby said. “We’ve got a guy with a gun, young female victims — we can’t predict what they’re going to do. We’ve got to get him off the street, and we’re asking the public to do that.” METRO Under ‘Arrested’ Get Funke-D up at • Photos of yesterday’s Never Nudes Unite convention in Times Square • New footage of the upcoming season • Two full minutes of the best Tobias Funke moments • How visitors to the Bluth banana stand responded to the “big yellow joint.” Weekend, May 17-19, 2013 TELEVISION Interview. Jessica Walter slips right back into the boozy matriarch role that made her famous — again. By her count, Jessica Walter has been a member of the Screen Actors Guild for 50 years, a period of time that encompasses a vast body of work — dramatic (“Grand Prix”), suspenseful (“Play Misty for Me,” opposite Clint Eastwood), supernatural (“Dr. Strange”) and, most recently, comedic (“Archer”). But for Walter, the forthcoming return of “Arrested Development” offers a reassuring reminder that her career has transcended not just different genres, but different generations. “Certainly demographically, there are probably people who thought I was dead,” Walter jokes. Returning as boozy matriarch Lucille Bluth, Walter says virtually every line of dialogue in the 15 new episodes creator Mitchell Hurwitz wrote has a double (or even triple) meaning, much like those in the 53 episodes of the show that were broadcast during its three seasons on Fox. But because each episode now focuses on a different character instead of simply following Jason Bateman’s Michael Bluth, conversational contexts shift frequently — a change that provided a considerable challenge for the cast as they navigated Hurwitz’s latticework of plot strands and one-liners. “We didn’t know a whole lot a lot of the time, which makes it much more difficult,” she admits. “In the end, it all worked out, but it’s a strange way to work because you don’t have all of the materials.” Still, even after a sevenyear hiatus between the show’s cancellation and its Netflix rebirth, Walter says she slipped easily back into the role. “The thing about our show, which I think you probably realize from watching it, is that the writing is so characterspecific,” she observes. She says her maternal instinct kicked in as soon as she encountered actor Tony Hale, who plays her tragic son Buster, maimed after he ignored a warning to beware of what he thought somebody was saying was Lucille. As viewers will remember, it was really a loose seal, which ate his hand whole. “Once I heard Tony’s voice and once I saw him, there he was with the hook and his pathetic demeanor — he was my little Busty again.” Between “Arrested Development” and “Archer,” on which she plays another alkie mom, Walter finds herself in the midst of a remarkable career renaissance, a fact she’s grateful for, regardless of whether people know her prior to playing these cantankerous, irresistibly manipulative mothers. “I’m so glad they think of something,” she says humbly. “At my age I’m privileged that they think of something, so it doesn’t bother me a bit if they think of me as Lucille.” Quoted “People have been really nice — they don’t seem to think of Lucille as horrible, thank God. But as long as they’re thinking of me, it makes me happy.” Walter TODD GILCHRIST Flashback Do not play ‘Misty’ for her We did not ask Jessica Walter about that movie where she has sex with Clint Eastwood. For his 1971 directorial debut “Play Misty for Me,” Clint cast her as a woman who becomes obsessed with his sexy radio DJ. Walter became cinema’s first-ever crazed onenight stand victim, who begins attacking him and his loved ones with a knifewielding fury. She was so good she was borderline uncastable for years — that’s how terrifying her performance was. But she’s not known for that character as much anymore, thankfully. “I have people that are my age and older who know who I am, who remember some of my work from the old days,” says Walter. “Then I used SPORTS 10 Guzzling martinis with Lucille Bluth to get, ‘Wow, my mother really likes you.’ Then I’d get, ‘My grandma really likes you.’ And now I get ‘I really like you!’ So how can I be unhappy about that?” 23 EAGLES NEW ERA NEEDS MATCHING NEW ATTITUDE Jason Peters is the best player on the Eagles, a dominant left tackle with five Pro Bowl appearances in eight years. He is recovering from two Achilles surgeries and an entire season of inactivity. He is learning the system of an unorthodox new coach. He is a team leader. So why has he blown off two weeks of practice? According to the Eagles, Peters isn’t required to attend OTAs and he is staying away for personal reasons. Oh, they’re personal. He is steamed at the organization for costing him more than $3 million by designating his second Achilles problem as a nonfootball injury. Hollis Thomas, a former Eagle and a co-host on my WIP radio show, has been reporting that Peters is not willing to volunteer his services — especially at the unusually rigorous practices being conducted by Chip Kelly — because he feels the Eagles showed no respect to him last season. Yes, Peters re-injured himself outside of the Eagles facilities, but he did it while trying to accelerate his rehab. He did it for the team. Who is in the right here doesn’t matter. The real issue is that Peters will be behind his team- The Voice of Philly Sports ANGELO CATALDI mates when the second minicamp opens today and when training camp starts in seven weeks. First-round draft pick Lane Johnson will not be working with his bookend across the offensive line because Peters is angry. The best player on the Eagles will not be making his teammates better. This is hardly the first time the Eagles have sacrificed player loyalty for the Almighty Dollar. Mike Patterson, one of the most dedicated Eagles of the past generation, ignored doctors’ orders and played five games in 2011 after a brain seizure. His reward? Patterson was placed on the same non-football injury list when he contracted viral pneumonia. Patterson, risking his life by playing, got the $150,000 the Eagles were trying to deny him when GM Howie Roseman had a sudden change of heart after a strong negative public reaction. While it may seem that Peters missing a couple of weeks of practice is no big deal in May and June, what it says about the way the Eagles conduct business is vital to their future. An organization that raised ticket prices after a 4-12 season cannot have it both ways. It cannot project a humanitarian image while clawing for every penny the way it has. The Eagles are embarking on a new era. They have a new coach, a new energy and a new outlook. Now what they need is a new attitude. They need to stop their obsession with profits with an owner worth more than half a billion dollars. Above all, they must make Jason Peters — and all of the players and fans offended by their businessfirst style — feel better about the Eagles than they do right now. Analysis McNabb thinks you are a racist Donovan McNabb can no longer run fast or throw deep, but he is better than ever at infuriating people. Last week, the former Eagles quarterback had the audacity to accuse Philadelphia of the ultimate crime. In his typical woe-is-me style, he painted his critics with the ugly brush of racism. His exact quote to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, while discussing the current plight of Robert Griffin III in Washington, was this: “It’s depressing to me. It goes beyond … the quarterback position to have people dislike the kid already and he didn’t really even do anything? It’s depressing. “This is a different arena he’s in — I lived it myself — where some people are going to dislike you because of your skin color.” In his warped mind, McNabb’s love-hate relationship with fans is simple to dissect. The people who loved him appreciated his accomplishments. The people who hated him did so because he was black. “I lived it myself.” Those are the important words. And they are a withering insult to a city that embraced him. My own dislike for McNabb has had a lot to do with his skin, actually. It is too thin. He has never been able to shrug off a valid criticism without attaching an agenda to it. At the height of McNabb’s career here, Terrell Owens publicly ripped his teammate for folding in the clutch. The petulant quarterback replied by calling the remark “black-onblack crime.” When someone sees everything in racial terms, the real racist is usually the person making the accusations.

All hail the king, Domonic Brown Baseball is a funny game. Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, Domonic Brown comes along and hits 16 home runs for the Phillies in the first two months of the season. In that same time frame, Cole Hamels goes 1-9. You just never know. Brown’s dramatic emergence as a superstar is the most improbable story in an otherwise sobering start for the declining Phils. He was written off by all but the clinically insane after several failed opportunities. Suddenly, he is everything Phillies fans could have imagined: a fivetool star with marquee appeal. Brown is the kind of player fans buy tickets to see. Jimmy Rollins rolled out the ridiculous theory that Phillies management never gave the kid a chance. Brown played 147 games before 2013 and hit 12 homers, with 57 RBIs and a .236 average. Is Rollins really saying those numbers demanded a starting spot in the outfield? Maybe Rollins needs to spend more time running hard to first and less time analyzing the front office. Tiger Woods’ comeback is almost complete. The world’s best golfer is reportedly close to signing a new deal with Nike, according to ESPN. Woods has been with Nike since 1996. His current contract is due to expire at the end of 2013. The new deal could be signed while Woods is in Philadelphia playing at the U.S. Open at Merion. Blue Cat Restaurant Head to Latin America without leaving Fairmount.

RDJ’s trainer gives us the moves that turned him into the hero. “Superheroes have good bodies, even if they have Ph.D.s,” says Brad Bose, who would know: He’s Robert Downey Jr.’s personal trainer. “So it was important that Robert was extremely fit and had a good muscular build — only it had to look realistic. He’s meant to be a billionaire playboy. You don’t want him to get too big and end up looking like Captain America or The Hulk.” Fortunately, Downey Jr. was almost ready to go for his third stint as Tony Stark in the new film opening Friday. “He’d recently finished filming ‘The Avengers,’ so he was in good shape,” Bose says. “But holding on to that muscle mass and definition for long periods of time isn’t easy. He had to get ‘re-buff.’ We were doing two-hour sessions, three to four days a week. By the time we were done, he’d gained five pounds of muscle and trimmed 10 pounds of fat.” ROMINA MCGUINNESS Robert Downey Jr. is back as Tony Stark in “Iron Man 3,” opening Friday. / ZADE ROSENTHAL The Robert Downey Jr. workout How he got there “Robert’s cardio was never an issue,” Bose tells Metro. “A lot of people don’t want to talk about it, but the truth is, he’s 48. He’s above the curve when it comes to being a fit individual, but this is a young man’s training he’s doing.” In order to gain On his day off muscle bulk, Downey Jr. spent the first month doing traditional weight training: push-ups, bench presses, etc. Once he and Bose were satisfied with his mass, they moved on to functional performance training, a technique that engages all muscle groups simultaneously: “FPT isn’t just for aesthetics,” says Bose. “All the exercises are designed to get you muscular through strength. As opposed to body building, where you’re working one muscle group in isolation, FPT gets as many muscles and as many planes of movement engaged at any one time (as possible),” he explains. The logic behind the moves is this: “The body functions as a unit. Every time you’re doing an upper-body movement, your legs should never be completely dormant. The core [from the lower part of your rib cage to the lower part of your hip girdle] should always be engaged. The aim of FPT is to do things more dynamically. So we’ll push sleds, we use battling ropes, sledgehammers, tires and so on.” “Robert is constantly doing something. But in order to spend time with his wife, he does a lot of Tracy Anderson cardio classes. And he’s a brown belt in kung fu, so on the opposite days that he’s not working with me, he’s sparring with his coach, Eric Oram.” Bose healthy Eyes. Healthy Living.

Dowd, 22, beat thousands of candidates from across the globe to win a the coveted oncein-a-lifetime ticket on board XCOR Lynx, the first generation rocket-powered spaceplane currently being built by leading spaceflight company SXC. Dowd has both the mental and physical smarts needed to be a perfect astronaut. Dowd, a physics and maths under- graduate at Boston’s Northeastern University, wowed the judging panel with his stunning chalkboard stop motion video on Einstein’s theory of relativity. Meanwhile, Dowd has been training for a grueling 12-mile endurance obstacle course race. “My motivation for him is that he really provides an amazing package in the combined qualities of scientific background, artistic qualities, dedication and the gift to tell a fascinating story,” Harry Van Hulten, test pilot with SXC and global jury member that selected Dowd. “He is absolutely unique. He taught me things in his video that I didn’t understand as well as I do now. He really blew me away with that. I can’t think of any better ambassador to tell the story about this space trip than him.” Dowd will receive astronaut training ahead of the trip scheduled for 2014. The “civilian astronaut” will be able to chronicle his preparations and space flight itself in a series of reports published in Metro across the globe. In reacting to the news, Dowd told Metro, “I’m the luckiest guy in the world and for about 20 minutes, I’ll be the luckiest guy in outer space!” Dowd added that it’s “an absolute honor” to be the part of the world’s first space mission to be launched by a newspaper. “To say this is a once-ina-lifetime event is an understatement. This is the first time ever this sort of mission is happening and I am elated to be a part of history.” Candidates submitted descriptions on why they were perfectly suited for a space mission to win a trip into space. Justin Dowd of Worcester, Mass., won Metro’s contest to take a trip to space. METRO Got Psoriasis? You could receive free Enbrel® for 1 year!

My younger sister, Erin drove in from Michigan with her family and my brother drove up from Brooklyn with his. I had all my nephews and my niece together for some quality time! We paddled canoes on Lake Taghkanic and had a picnic in the park. Simple and perfect!” —Tracy Reese FASHION WEEK IN ASSOCIATION WITH — Rebecca Taylor — Mara Hoffman “Some of my favorite summer memories are from the Hamptons with my family. There we go to the local farm stands for organic produce, my son, Skyler picks me bouquets of sunflowers, my husband and I dine at Il Tutto Giorno in Sag Harbor and The Palm in East Hampton and we have evening bonfires with friends on the most beautiful beaches. It’s my calm before the madness of New York Fashion Week.” –Rachel Zoe “My experience at Coachella this summer was so inspiring — the music, the colors, the landscape, the boho fashion. It really got my creative juices flowing and actually inspired the BCBGMAXAZRIA Resort 2014 collection.” So long summer, it’s been real Cards Against Humanity, Nordic feasts and beach time in the South of France — 14 designers reveal their best moments from the season of SPF 50 and margaritas on the rocks. “A memory of this summer that I loved most was an afternoon in May after my honeymoon when we had friends over for a barbecue. Daft Punk’s album had just come out and was the perfect soundtrack to an afternoon of dancing, eating delicious ricotta apple crostinis, drinking fruitfilled sangria and playing Cards Against Humanity.” “I loved my trip to Sweden. In Stockholm, I hosted an event with Elin Kling and Nathalie Schuterman at the Grand Hotel. I was inspired by all of the amazing shops and found my new favorite food — which is salmon roe served on toast. I loved discovering my roots as my grandfather’s family came over from Sweden via Ellis Island in the early 1900s.” — Tanya Taylor — Amy Smilovic “One of our most memorable moments this summer was at a friend’s home in Sag Harbor. With his Swedish background, he can always be counted on to prepare an amazing meal. But this one felt like a Nordic feast. We ate on the beach while watching a beautiful sunset. Great meal, great friends, great ambience — can’t get much better than that!” — Sachin and Babi Ahluwalia F08 “One of my favorite days of the summer was the day after my swim show in Miami. My husband, son, and I spent the entire day hanging out at the beach outside the Shore Club. We ate tacos and swam in the ocean all day.” “I had the perfect d day in Paris. Breakfast a at Laduree on Rue B Bonaparte, next t the Musee d’Orsay — yummy lunch t there. Then finished t the day with wine a and goat cheese at D Deux Margots in Saint G Germain. Bliss!” - Lubov Azria “I spent the summer at our house in Tahoe w with my family. I loved watching [my child dren] Ripley and Tanner play on the beach at th the lake and then having everyone together fo for family-style dinners in the evenings.” –Jenni Kayne “For Fourth of July weekend, I was fortunate enough to be the guest of very good friends with a very gorgeous boat sailing around the Chesapeake Bay. rom watching the parade in historic Annapolis to the most amazing crab cakes at The Inn at Perry Cabin, it was a thoroughly patriotic (and relaxing!) way to spend the holiday. I spent the rest of the weekend out on the deck, reading and sketching my upcoming spring collection.” PAUL MAFFI “A perfect day would unfold similarly to how my days did in Santorini this Summer. Breakfast and a good book, a long walk, a swim, afternoon drinks and an early night sleep, all overlooking the Aegean Sea. Bliss.” — Bibhu Mohapatra “I had a day on the beach with two of my best friends from school in the South of France. It’s the same beach where we spent many a teenage h holiday together t causing lots c of trouble — it was a really special day.” — Anna Laub — Wes Gordon “This summer I taught my little girl how to snorkel.” - Karen Walker TINA CHADHA 23 new york Tuesday, September 10, 2013 IN ASSOCIATION WITH Sponsored Editorial Makeu artistry by Charlott Willer.

With “Girls” a hit and plus-sized models becoming the norm, we wonder: Are the days of the blonde bimbo over? star/creator Lena Dunham is, well, average-looking. She’s a chubby, tattooed, thin-haired 26-year-old. She’s normal. The hype comes at the perfect time for the “real beauty” movement — and for this Metro Sex Issue, themed “Feel Good Naked.” Within the past month, plus-size model Jennie Runk made headlines when H+M debuted her modeling swimwear (despite being a dress size 14-16, not 0). Dove soap, on the tails of an ad campaign featuring plus-size women, launched an “anti-Photoshop” app that restores images to their original form. And “amateur” porn is the most popular category on YouPorn, ranking higher than “blondes.” The house that Jenna Jameson built is crumbling. The question is: How quickly? The biggest sex story of the past year didn’t happen between Christian and Anastasia in some porn your mom read — it happened in Brooklyn when Adam banged Hannah and probably gave her an STD. The HBO series “Girls,” with its frank depiction of bad dirty talk, venereal diseases, abortions, miscarriages and condom spill, is all about sex. But unlike “Sex and the City” before it, this show is a global hit partly because The model The editor “It’s ridiculous that people are arguing. We should focus on embracing all sizes.” “We don’t airbrush. There’s something sexy about that.” Arielle Loren founder, Corset magazine Jennie Runk plus-size model for H+M So yes, how quickly? 8 THE SEX ISSUE IN 2013 ‘FATKINI’ DESIGNER GABI GREGG Tip from Corset editor In one year, or in five? “I don’t think five years is enough,” says Gabi Gregg, 26, a plus-size blogger. Her work went viral last year after she posted photos of herself looking sensual in a “fatkini” and, this week, she launches her own line of swimwear (see story, at right). “But peo- ple like Lena Dunham and Louis C.K. are opening doors. Just the fact that her body makes people so angry — if you read the comments, people are telling her to put on clothes. She has said that only makes her want to do it more. It’s my favorite show.” Arielle Loren doesn’t watch “Girls,” but also traffics in blunt depictions of sex. Her magazine Corset (www.corsetmagazine. com) features graphic nudity and first-person erotica, and resembles someone’s beautifully photographed diary. It became profitable after a year, and Loren sees it as part of a movement. “The way we learn about sex, the pornography industry drives a lot of that consciousness,” says Loren, a 27-year-old American. “It starts to inform the way we think about ‘sexy’ from • Do the self-work. “Start by walking around your house naked. If you have a roommate, shut your door and walk around your room naked. The more you get comfortable with your naked self — not covering yourself up with a towel every time you take a shower, taking the time to be in your body and open like that — your confidence will slowly and steadily increase.” Loren, on how to feel good naked The blogger just crafted a line for In school, did you realize you were bigger than everybody else? Yes and no. I wasn’t teased too much, luckily. It was mostly internal, feeling insecure next to my classmates, if they were thinner than me or had blonde hair. Nobody had to say anything. And I started trying to diet when I was in middle school and high school, and it wasn’t until college that I came to accept myself. Dunham is just one of the “Girls.” The actress has said she wouldn’t want a body like a Victoria’s Secret model. / HBO an early age. But there are multifaceted aspects of sex and what it can really be, which we explore in the magazine. That goes from everything you can do in the bedroom — physically — but also how we understand our bodies.” A recent Corset photoshoot, “Breasts in Erotic Daylight,” features a brown bosom with stretch marks. “We definitely don’t airbrush,” says Loren. “There’s something very sexy about that. Being able to see the hair follicles on a breast or the stretch marks on a woman’s stomach.” She now has subscribers here, in Canada, Peru, Brazil, Sweden and beyond. And yet post a photo of a plus size-model online and you see not everyone’s as accepting. Exhibit A: Jennie Runk. Junk in Runk’s trunk The excitement (and de- 9 bate) over Runk’s H+M campaign made it all the way to Italy, where she was working in May. It led to at least one sleepless night. “I was thinking about all the media I’ve been getting and my mom reads a lot of the comments and she said, ‘I can’t believe somebody called you fat,’” remembers the 24-year-old, “and some people on the other side were like, ‘The curvier bodies are better!’ and it’s so ridiculous that people are having these ar- guments. What if some girl looks at these pictures and looks exactly like me: How is she going to feel?” She turned to Facebook with a post. “I’ve noticed that people like to debate what kind of body is better than another,” she wrote. “This is all wrong! To me, true beauty is defined by a healthy lifestyle and a genuine personality. Bodies are just meaty things that carry our personhoods around for us.” A week later, Runk is still riled up. She notes that “bigger” models are getting more work, but “we should focus on embracing all sizes,” she says bluntly. “Should” is different than “are.” The chart below shows the Sex Symbols of 2013, as selected by our editors from a pool of working actors who have notable projects this year — there are more shapes and sizes than there would have been in 1985, but it’s still very thin and white. “We’re going in the right direction,” says Gregg, “but ... ” “This argument,” adds Runk, “is going to be a thing of the past when — honestly, I don’t know.” On Facebook, she was more hopeful, saying it’s “our differences that make us remarkable.” She laughs when she hears that again. “I’ve been told before I’m a little too naive.” SAM CASTONE Metro World News How do the suits, um, work? What do you mean by work? [Laughs] They fit so well. Is it made with a binding material, with latches or something? Actually, no. I’ve had people ask about support, of course, but there’s nothing special about the fabric of the suits. It’s normal bathing suit fabric. In terms of the Galaxy suit, what makes it so special is the print — it’s graphic Quoted “It wasn’t until college that I came to accept myself.” Gabi Gregg, writer, designer and fun and looks great because it’s so busy that it — I don’t want to say it distracts the eye, because I don’t care about that sort of thing, but that’s what it does. And the high-waisted cut looks great on all women. Are you OK with the term “fatkini”? Yes. I didn’t use it this year because it went so viral last year, and it was inspiring for many people but took away from it, for others, because they were stuck on the word and got angry and started commenting. It’s a reclamation of the word “fat,” especially in our community, we all get it. When it goes outside the community, people get angry and send emails. But I’m fine with it. At the end of the day, it’s a fatkini because I’m fat and wearing a bikini. [Laughs] How much do you weigh now? I believe I’m around 225. How tall are you? I’m 5-foot-5. Do you get flack for not being “fat enough?” Early on, there were some comments. I don’t get a lot. Once in a while, like when the bikini pictures come out. It’s funny to see half the people commenting are disgusted by my body and the other half are like, fat women saying, “She’s shaped so nicely so it doesn’t count! I have fat hanging from my arm that she doesn’t have!” I try to avoid the comments on other sites. Some women wish they could see women bigger than me in a bikini and I understand that but I can only be myself. SAM CASTONE Hot list: The sex symbols of 2013.

The feat was broadcast live across the world with great uncertainty surrounding the outcome as Rossy himself confessed his calculations were fallible. Since then he has continued to break ground and world records for distance.

Nonetheless, Al-Essawy entered the arena with shield and sword and took on the lion, although the animal looked bored. Man defeated beast. The gladiator was subsequently arrested, yet supporters point to the reopening of the pyramids and other major attractions after the fight as proof that AlEssawy was a national hero.
