The News To Know Now


Just in time for the start of the 2010 Major League Baseball season, Victoria's Secret Pink has teamed up with the MLB to create apparel featuring eleven teams, including the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and The Los Angeles Dodgers. On offer in VS stores nationwide are hats, jerseys, t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, tanks, shorts and fleeces — perfect for women who love baseball or those who just want to root for their man's favorite team.

Speaking of shopping, WWD reports that Oprah Winfrey's fans can now stop by her newly-opened boutique in Chicago's Water Tower Place and pick up items hand-picked by the media mogul, including her "O" signature baby collection, South African crafts and jewelry, and some private label products that Oprah stocks in her 5,500-square-foot store, across from Harpo Studios. She may be stepping down from her daytime show soon, but this is definitely something to talk about! (WWD)


Companies making anti-aging and sunscreen claims that they can't actually back up with results better beware. The FDA is going into crackdown mode on imported products that don't contain or do what they say they do. We just wonder why they're only starting now. (BellaSugar)

Years ago, women across America rushed to their hairstylists begging for "The Rachel" — 11 million of them according to a recent study. And now a new generation of young men has its very own version, "The Bieber" — inspired by the young singing sensation's side-swept bowl cut. (NY Post)


If you're looking for a haute cellphone upgrade, don't miss Versace's new super-chic Unique phone. The French-made cellphone features an 18-karat yellow gold or stainless finish and your choice of purple, pink or black leather, embossed with the brand's signature Medusa logo. Launching next month, the phone will set you back a cool $6,747 or $8,464 (depending on whether you go, um, basic or beyond). Look for it in Versace flagship boutiques and fine jewelry shops worldwide. (WWD)

Here's some news that's sure to make you "paws" (and smile). Sixty-five bold hounds turned out for the 5th annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition, held in Imperial Beach, California. The furry competitors were scored on "confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to 'grip it and rip it.'" Click here for some pix of the top wave-riding dogs. The winners scored a "pet vacation" at Loews Coronado Bay Resort. (CasaSugar)


The New York Times reported on a new study, showing that male antelopes use deception to get their ladies into bed. (Huh. Wonder if they took a tip from male humans?) Here's what the male antelope does: When a female antelope seems to be leaving the mating area, he will “run in front of her, freeze in place, stare in the direction that she is going and snort loudly.” The female recognizes this snort as the official signal that the male spotted a predator, which, in this case, he is faking to keep her in his vicinity. Guys, we don't think this trick will work on human females, but feel free to give it a try. (The New York Times)

Can your growing baby taste the food you eat when he or she is in your womb? According to taste researcher Julie Mennella, of the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, maybe so. "If it gets into the blood supply, it will get into the amniotic fluid and the breast milk," she says. “If you take amniotic fluid from mothers who have eaten a really garlicky meal, you can smell it." We wonder if this is a way to develop those taste buds early on — making it easier to get kids to eat their veggies later in life. (New Scientist)
