Caitlyn Jenner reveals where she keeps her Olympic gold medal

Caitlyn Jenner keeps her gold medal from the 1976 Montreal Olympics in a place you may not expect.

In an interview with WhoSay, the I Am Cait star explained why she doesn’t display her medal in a prominent place in her house.

“My gold medal is my most-prized possession — I’m so proud of it. However, I never wanted my kids to feel like they had to have a gold medal in order to be considered a success. I didn’t want them to constantly compare their own achievements to my time in the Olympics, so I haven’t displayed my medal.”

But where does she keep it? Her makeup drawer.

In the video, the 65-year-old says of her Olympic days:

“That was a great time in my life, but to be honest with you, it’s even a greater time in my life right now.”

Jamaican gold medalist ran in someone else’s lane and didn’t get disqualified

Jamaican gold medalist ran in someone else’s lane and didn’t get disqualified

Originally posted on For The Win:

The 100-meter dash, at its essence, is the easiest event in sports. Start, run a straight line for a handful of seconds, then stop. The 200-meter dash is only slightly more complicated: Start, run a curve for handful of seconds, then hit a straightaway for the second half of the race and finish. You’d think this would be easy enough for anyone, let alone a seven-time Olympic medalist such as Veronica Campbell-Brown. But you’d be wrong, my friends. You’d be wrong.

In a track and field world championships that keeps getting wilder and wilder, Campbell-Brown, the two-time Olympic 200 gold medalist, shifted lanes in the 200 heats, moving over into the lane of Englishwoman Margaret Adeoye, who appeared quite confused by the interloper in her lane.

The most amazing thing…

Na Mate Tongola

NAIROBI, KENYA, Baada ya mjadala uliochukua miezi 15, hatimaye Bunge la taifa limetupilia mbali ripoti ya kamati ya bunge kuhusu uhasibu, PAC iliyopendekeza mkuu wa wafanyakazi katika ofisi ya naibu wa rais, Marianne Kitany, na maafisa wengine wanne kuchunguzwa kwa kukodishwa kwa ndege ya binafsi iliyotumika na William Ruto kuzuru mataifa matano ya bara Afrika mwaka 2013.

The science is clear: Children raised by same-sex parents are at no disadvantage

The science is clear: Children raised by same-sex parents are at no disadvantage

Originally posted on Quartz:

But what about the children?

The debate over gay marriage—addressed this week by the US Supreme Court but by no means settled—frequently turns to concerns about the emotional well-being of children raised by same-sex parents. But science tells us the fears are overblown.

In January, researchers from the Columbia Law School examined 76 studies published after 1985 and found that only four of them concluded that children raised by gay couples faced additional adversity as a result of having same-sex parents. To be considered, each of the studies had to meet established guidelines that accounted for credibility and relevance.

More recently, researchers from the University of Colorado Denver and the University of Oregon used the tool Web of Science to examine the ways in which scientific papers analyzed children of same-sex parents over time, and how each paper cited others to back its analysis. They found that over time…

3 Clues We Overlooked Indicating Queen Latifah Might Be A Lesbian

3 Clues We Overlooked Indicating Queen Latifah Might Be A Lesbian

Originally posted on The Urban Daily:

# Clues We Overlooked Indicating Queen Latifah Might Be A lesbianThe general public has been speculating about Queen Latifah’s sexuality since she was rocking a kufi and singing about putting ladies first. Recently, the rumors were reignited when the New Jersey bred MC and actress said she was proud to be performing at a gay pride event. Many took that as the private celebrity’s words as a thinly veiled coming out speech. While everyone is talking about the possibility of Queen Latifah possibly preferring women, I think she’s been dropping clues about the matter since the mid-90s. Check out three things that we think hinted at Queen Latifah being a lesbian.

Dr. Monica Juma is Not the Right Candidate for the Position of Principal Secretary, Ministry of Interior!!

Originally posted on Hard Talk Kenya:

· Caution: – a) A concerned Kenyan, Michael Orende, wrote an interesting letter to the Standard (Monday, June 15, 2015).

· Orende said: “I was astounded by the strength of the newly found unity and solidarity among women in this country on Parliament’s decision to reject Dr. Monica Juma’s appointment as Secretary to the Cabinet.

· I find their arguments very outrageous and shocking given that the MPs’ rejection of Dr. Juma was based on her conduct and not her qualifications.

· That is a public office meant to serve the public and the MPs are the representatives of the public. Now, if they should be shunned off like that, one can imagine how a regular (read ordinary) citizen can be handled.

· Why do women have this tendency to marshal numbers rallying for support whenever something happens to an individual woman? The same happened when Rachel Shebesh was slapped…
