Take a Look at these Brave Young Women in these Photos

breast cancer 00

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.

Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 (primarily women ages 15-54) who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, a reflection avoiding breast cancer risk hiding and healing. Breast cancer risk hiding is a volatile way of much danger in women’s well being.

As most men likely know, it’s important to check your balls regularly for signs of testicular cancer.
In the interest of public health, the members of the UK’s Wolverhamton Wolverines,  an Aussie Rules football club, strip down to demonstrate the proper technique while raising awareness for the Balls to Cancer charity. Tip: “It should feel like a peeled boiled egg in a bag of fluid.”

R.I.P. Published this article about STEVE JOBS in Aug. 2011 :: — >10 Unusual Things “James” Didn’t Know About Steve Jobs

I was standing right next to Steve Jobs in 1989 and it was the closest thing I ever felt to being gay.  The guy was incredibly wealthy, good looking enough to get any girl, a nerd super-rockstar who had just convinced my school to buy a bunch of NeXT machines (which, btw, were in fact the best machines to program on at the time) and I just wanted to be him.  I wanted to be him ever since I had the Apple II+ as a kid. Ever since I shoplifted Ultima II, Castle Wolfenstein, and half a dozen other games that my friends and I would then rip from each other and pretend to be sick so we could stay home and play all day.

If you had to ask me what Steve Job’s father’s name was I never in one zillion years would’ve guessed that, and that Steve Jobs biologically was half Syrian Muslim. For some reason I thought he was Jewish. Maybe it’s because I wanted to be him so I projected my own background onto him. His parents were two graduate students who I guess weren’t sure if they were ready for a kid so put him up for adoption and then a few years later had another kid (see above). So I didn’t know he was adopted.
