CALGARY- School may be out for the summer, but some Calgary kids headed back to the classroom on Monday to meet a country music superstar.
Shania Twain is in town ahead of two Calgary Stampede concerts later this week, and took the chance to kick off a new program at Catherine Nichols Gunn School. Through her non-profit organization Shania Kids Can which helps at-risk children, a clubhouse will be built at the school, complete with extra-curricular activities, nutritional and therapeutic programs.

It’s hard not to love Jessica Alba. This American sweetheart seriously dabbles in a little bit of everything—she’s a beautiful actress, a loving wife, a mother of 2 daughters, an entrepreneur and an author. I’m very curious on when she has time to sleep! Oh, and I forgot to mention—she has absolutely flawless skin.
In my opinion, Jessica has one of the most radiant complexions in Hollywood. Her skin literally glows. Although she does like to play up her eyes with dark makeup, she never has to wear much foundation to cover any blemishes or imperfections. Her skin always looks hydrated and fresh. BRB – I need to refill my water bottle! (8 glasses, people!)

Celebrating more than 15 years of making a difference for animals, the Petco Foundation will honor Hilary Swank for her work in animal rescue and commitment to animal advocacy.
Swank will receive Petco Foundation’s Hope Award at its sixth annual Hope Gala on May 3 in San Diego. The annual award celebrates the spirit of hope through a life dedicated to promoting the human-animal bond. Past recipients include Ellen DeGeneres, Betty White and Lily Tomlin.
“It’s an honor to be recognized as an advocate for animals by such a respected organization as the Petco Foundation,” said Ms. Swank. “They work tirelessly every single day on behalf of animals and have such a far-reaching impact through their extraordinary efforts. This Hope Award is a reminder that we all need to individually come together in order to collectively bring hope and make a difference for animals, animal welfare and animal rights. For even one person’s vision and efforts today can have a lasting impact that will make a difference in the lives of these souls for many tomorrows.”
A portion of the proceeds from the event will also go to Ms. Swank’s own animal-welfare organization, The Hilaroo Foundation, which brings together youth, who have been given up on, and animals, who have been abandoned, to help heal one another through Rescue, Rehabilitation, Animal Adoption and Responsibility Training. No soul should be discarded by society and every soul needs someone who cares and believes in them.

Last weekend, a video of 15-year-old Brendan Jordan went viral online.
In the clip, which has been dubbed “Kid goes full diva on live TV,” Jordan is featured on a live news cast among a large crowd, and while everyone else yells and waves at the camera, he does the choreography from “Applause” in the fiercest way possible.
Jordan was later interview on The Today Show, and explained, “I was imagining myself as if I were Lady Gaga, and that no one could destroy me.”
Now, Mother Monster herself has seen the video…and it’s no surprise that she absolutely LOVES it!

“It’s something that I’ve always wanted ever since I was a little girl,” Lively told Us Weeklyof her pregnancy. “I never knew what I wanted to do for a living but I knew I wanted to have a lot of kids because I had come from a big family, so it was always important to me. So it’s just the excitement of that finally being here.”
The celebrity trainer made headlines for being visibly shocked at the dramatic weight loss of The Biggest Loser season 15 winner Rachel Frederickson, and shortly thereafter rumors started swirling that Michaels wanted to leave the show. She did so in June, marking the third time she split from the reality competition program. She also launched an activewear line with K-Mart and has been expanding her workout streaming site, FitFusion. All this after turning 40 in February.
In her refreshingly honest interview, she spoke with Health about her milestone birthday and the sense of calm that came with it—for which we assume she is very grateful.
“There’s a confidence and sense of self that comes with age that I didn’t anticipate,” Michaels said. “I don’t feel the need to prove myself now, which I did for a very long…
