Jennifer Garner Is Having A Girl

Looks like Jennifer Garner accidentally let it slip on The Tonight Show that she and husband Ben Affleck are expecting a girl, due around Christmas-time.

“You can just start to feel really pregnant. Like you are the hugest person on the face of the planet. ... And then I felt just bigger and bigger like she ...”

Any Truth To This?

I thought this was a bunch of hooey when I read it, but research published in the British Medical Journal suggested that left-handed women may be at a greater risk for developing breast cancer.

"While some case-control studies have shown a relationship between
left-handedness and increased breast cancer risk, there has so far not been any prospective data."

Good thing I'm right handed.

10-month-old baby stabbed in stroller in NYC

Toddler stable; man with history of mental problems detained after attack

NEW YORK - A knife-wielding man stabbed a 10-month-old baby in her stroller, critically injuring her, police said.
Isabelle Avins was rushed to a hospital where she underwent surgery Wednesday night. She was listed in critical but stable condition, police spokesman Detective Brian Sessa said.
At the family’s request, the hospital on Thursday declined to provide further details.

The nanny was walking with the baby around 5 p.m. when the man approached them a short distance from the girl’s home, Sessa said.

“He just came out of nowhere,” witness Hennessy Arias told the New York Post in Thursday’s editions. “The baby was hysterical, crying. ... She was crying and trying to gag for air.”

The nanny, identified only as a 20-year-old woman, screamed for help and cradled the baby.

Isabelle’s father, Jon Avins, also praised the nanny.

“The babysitter saved her life,” he told reporters outside the family’s apartment building. “She’s like a member of our family.”

Bernard Derr, 48, a man with a history of psychiatric problems, was taken into custody a short time after the attack and held on attempted murder and other charges, police said.
