(Family Circle) Just when you wrap your brain around teens challenging each other to swallow spoonfuls of cinnamon, you hear they're ingesting detergent pods. Discuss these dangerous dares with your kids before they act on them:

Be respectful
"Impulse control is one of the last areas to develop in the adolescent brain," says Frances Jense, M.D., chair of neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and author of The Teenage Brain. While we often make fun of teens for the questionable things they do, this is a crucial point in their development. Make it clear you get what they're going through.

Rely on facts
To avoid scolding and getting emotional, Jensen suggests researching the behaviors you want to discuss beforehand. Be objective and say, "I understand you're intrigued and want to try this. At your age you're more prone to risk-taking and I want to give you reasons to think twice now, because in the moment it may be harder to resist.

Strategize together

What kind of shape are you in? The answer lies in the shape that most appeals to you. "Day in and day out, shapes are an elemental part of our lives," says psychologist Raymond Schultz. "And the ones that you're instinctively drawn to directly relate to the most basic aspects of what it takes to make you happy."

If you're partial to this shape, chances are you're in the middle of making big changes in your life. You could be contemplating anything from starting a new career to dumping your boyfriend. Whatever has or is about to happen, just remember that the chaos is temporary and contentment is on the way.

You're seldom at a loss for a solution to problems both at home and at work. A creative thinker with a can-do attitude, you exude a confidence that draws others to your camp, eager to follow your lead. You're at your best when given free rein to blaze a new trail for a cause that you feel passionate about.

(Entertainment Weekly) This summer's not-live-action remake of Disney's 1994 blockbuster will challenge what you remember about "The Lion King." By royal decree, so will these wild facts about the majestic title:

The Lion King is considered Disney's fist animated feature to have an original plot not adapted from an existing story line or fairy tale. It bears similarity to, but not directly adapted from Hamlet.

In early development, Rafiki was a cheetah and Scar was the leader of baboons waging a war with the lions. Temporarily titled King of the Beasts and later King of the Jungle, the film was considered a lower-priority title than Pocahontas.

Elton John declined twice before accepting the job of writing the film's songs with lyricist Tim Rice; the gig was previously offered to Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus of ABBA, as well as Paul McCartney.

Real-life friends Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella were starring together on Broadway in Guys and Dolls when they auditi…


(By Devon McCollum) Flirting is supposed to be fun. Most guys get so into the competitive aspect of flirting that they make it into something more serious. Flirting is supposed to be fun the same way that giggling about girls when you were in fourth grade was fun. Women aren't nearly as funny anymore, but you get the idea. Make a game out of it!

1. Smile
It's so simple, isn't it? You see a woman, you smile. There's a little more to it; it is not that easy, or else you would be hooking up a lot more often. But smiling is a perfect way to show that you're interested, and it will also let her know that you are a nice, fun guy.

2. Become a greeter
Amazingly enough, the best icebreaker, the best pickup line and the best way to approach a woman is to walk up to her, smile and say hi. Practice by seeing how many times in one day you can say hi to women - even if you aren't really interested in them. It will allow you to become used to the action. If you are not close enou…


Having trouble losing a few extra pounds? Experts say that matching your personality to a particular diet is the best way to battle the bulge. Discover how the real you can trim excess weight:
If you are spontaneous, always ready for adventure and easily bored -- You're a competitor who thrives on interaction with others. So your best bet for getting fit is to join a group of like mined people. Exercising together and swapping diet tips with pals keeps you involved and interested in the plan.
If you read labels, thoughtfully consider food choices and weigh yourself often -- You're a brainiac who endlessly analyzes details until you're overwhelmed by all the choices available. Get a handle on your diet by making small changes like switching to healthful olive oil. And toss out those bathroom scales.
If you require a strict routine, schedule meals a week ahead and seldom eat lunch -- You're the Sgt. Major of your household, keeping everyone on schedule. Use your organizatio…


This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

Five Minutes
If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

Go Ahead
This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.

Loud Sigh
This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

That's Okay
This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(Popular Science) Last weekend, New York suffered a power failure when a high voltage cable caught fire, and not as a result of hackers. But what if?

84 percent of utilities make non-specialists cybersecurity decisions
The grid's enemies rely on expert hackers to carry out their attacks, defending themselves with pencil-pushers rather than professionals. That's because there aren't enough tech-savvy hired guns to go around. To combat this vulnerability, a federal task force is setting up mutual-assistance pacts, allowing one team of cyber-saviors to help multiple companies.

215 estimated Master Control Centers in America
A hacker's ultimate goal is to own a Master Control Center. Within these critical hub s, system operators rely on video-covered walls and button-filled consoles to keep the grid going. If a malignant program breaks through, it could corrupt the data that controllers rely on. So some power companies are creating duplicates. These twin nerve centers trade of…

Love Island Night 2 Gave Us a New Favorite Couple. Two nights in and much has already changed on Love Island. We're still just as invested as we were after one episode, but our attentions have shifted over to what might be an early favorite couple: Zac and Elizabeth. There was a concern there for a second when, during a classic Love Island "kiss the person whose dirty secret you think this is" game, Elizabeth learned that Zac once left a girl in his bed to go hook up with his ex. She panicked about this since she'd been abandoned in bed before, but he explained that this was long ago in his past, and he learned not to be such a bad person from that experience, and now he and Elizabeth like totally have a really easy time talking to each other and they totally vibe and the only thing Zac wishes is that Elizabeth were a snuggler. And now we're like, kinda obsessed with them. The reveal of last night's cliffhanger was both exactly and not exactly as dramatic as …

Seth Rogen Says Beyonce Got a Standing Ovation at The Lion King Premiere for "Just Existing." All hail Queen Bey! During a guest appearance on Wednesday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Seth Rogen told the story of how Beyonce received a "standing ovation for just existing" at the world premiere of The Lion King. It all happened when the film's director, Jon Favreau, introduced the cast to the audience and invited each star to walk across the stage. As soon as he announced the Grammy winner's name, everyone in the crowd started "losing their mind." "Beyonce was called out and the audience stood up and went crazy," Rogen recalled. "I was like, 'She's getting a standing ovation for just existing.' Like, her mere presence was a reason to stand and go crazy, and I totally got it. I was like, 'Yeah, we should be celebrating. We made it. We're all in a room with Beyonce. That's what you want.'" While R…

Emma Swann, the British-born jeweler who operates Verse out of Sydney, told People that she originally sent Meghan a necklace with an "H" (for Prince Harry) and an "M" on it, which Markle has not worn publicly -- and when Archie was born, she sent an "A" to Kensington Palace.
