A recent study in theArchives of Internal Medicine found that taking multivitamins and other supplements may actually shorten your life. Uh-oh.
Researchers in the study collected information from nearly 40,000 women (but say the findings apply to men too) several times over 22 years. They asked about all sorts of health issues, including vitamin and supplement use. After reconciling this data with health and death records, researchers identified seven supplements that actually seem to hasten death: vitamin B6, folic acid, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, and your innocent-looking multivitamin. The increase in mortality rate ranged from 2.2 percent (multivitamins) to a whopping 18 percent (copper).
All of which begs the question: Should you quit taking your vitamins? Well, I’m not going to quit—and you shouldn’t either. Here’s why:
Most people assume being good-looking gives you a career boost. But just how much does it help?
A lot. Good-looking people charm interviewers, get hired faster, are more likely to make more sales and get more raises.
Daniel Hamermesh, an economics professor at the University of Texas in Austin, measures out the benefits in his book, “Beauty Pays: Why Attractive People Are More Successful.”
According to his research, attractive people are likely to earn an average of 3% to 4% more than a person with below-average looks. That adds up to $230,000 more over a lifetime for the typical good-looking person, Dr. Hamermesh estimates. Even an average-looking worker is likely to make $140,000 more over a lifetime than an ugly worker.
We asked Dr. Hamermesh to discuss his findings. Edited excerpts follow:

No offense against the technological genius Steve but if he’s front page news and the Famine in East Africa is not, that is a problem. The hundreds of thousands that are dying and have died deserve equal (if not more) attention. Did you know that over 30,000 children have died and the death toll continues to rise? So it seems that the nation has more concern for digital devices than they have for human life.
I wish that iPods were made in Africa. Maybe then, Americans would care a little more about the Famine.
In the end, it’s not that the death of Steve Jobs didn’t deserve public grief. The point is that the famine crisis effecting million shouldn’t be ignored.

Denzel Washington has given his alma mater, Fordham University, a $2.25 million donation to benefit the school’s theater arts department, the New York Times reports.
The majority of that money, $2 million, will create the Denzel Washington Chair in Theatre. “Cosby Show” alum and Broadway actress Phylicia Rashad will fill the role this fall, teaching a course called “Creating a Character.”
The remaining funds will create a scholarship for an undergraduate theater student.
The Oscar-winner said in a statement that he donated the money “in order to offer the next generation of students positive influences.” He said Rashad “will provide the care, compassion and that extra push to help take students where they’re meant to go.”
Kanye West launched his debut women’s line during the official Paris Fashion Week. With a simple black and white invitation sent out the day before the event, the show drew practically everyone to its venue at the Lycee Henri-IV, a Paris public school. In attendance was an impressive mix of fashion’s elite and celebrity—Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld, and all major fashion magazine editors, as well as Terry Richardson, Lindsay Lohan, the Olsen twins, and other designers, like Alexander Wang and Olivier Theyskens—all curious to see what the notable musician could bring to the scrutinizing fashion industry.
Kanye spared no expense for his design debut. Aside from taking notes from the front row of several fashion week shows himself, he also did some work for Fendi and Louis Vuitton, consulted with Central Saint Martins professor Louise Wilson, got Giuseppe Zanotti to design and produce all the shoes in the show, and tapped designer Louise Goldin to help him with his latest foray. And on the day itself, Kanye called upon Chanel Iman, Karlie Kloss, and Jourdan Dunn to present his pieces as only top models can do.
