Self magazine editor apologizes for shaming cancer survivor in 'lame' tutu

Senior editor-in-chief Lucy Danziger told USA Today she was "personally mortified" after her magazine mocked brain cancer survivor Monika Allen in a recent issue. Allen not only survived brain cancer, but she ran the LA Marathon while going through chemotherapy.

She co-founded Glam Runner, which sells tutus to raise money for Girls on the Run. Allen ran the marathon dressed as Wonder Woman wearing a starry blue tutu. When the magazine emailed Allen and asked for permission to use the photo, she, of course, was excited.

But according to Glam Runner's recent Facebook post, Allen was shocked to see that the picture was actually featured in the magazine's BS Meter, which is described as a "guide to what's legit and what's lame this month." Allen's picture was put under the "lame" category.

"A racing tutu epidemic has struck NYC's Central Park, and it's all because people think these froufrou skirts make you run faster," the column reads. "Now, if you told us they made people run from you faster, maybe we would believe it."

Dayton advances to Elite 8, students flood streets to celebrate

No. 11 seed Dayton Flyers (26-10) continued its underdog run Thursday, advancing to the Elite 8 with a 82-72 win against Stanford. A place they haven't been since 1984.

The leading scorer for the Flyers was Jordan Sibert with 18, who is a transfer from Ohio State and graduated from Princeton High School.

The University Dayton has about 8,000 undergraduate students, and after Thursday night's win, students came flooding out of their houses in the so-called 'UD Ghetto' to celebrate.

Dad turns videos of his toddler into action movies

Remember as a small child when you would hop between chairs and couches to avoid the hot lava on the floor of your living room? Daniel Hashimoto, an After Effects artist for DreamWorks, used his professional skills to enhance home videos of his 3-year-old son James.

James goes from normal toddler to saber-wielding, lava-jumping superhero in his dad's series of videos called "Action Movie Kid."

Miley Cyrus 101: College to offer course on pop star

From Disney Queen to twerking queen, there's a lot to learn about the evolution of Miley Cyrus. Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York plans to offer a summer course to keep its students informed.

"The Sociology of Miley Cyrus: Race, Class, Gender and Media" will use Miley as a lens through which students can explore themes of identity, entertainment, media and fame.

Assistant Professor Carolyn Chernoff will be teaching the class, who was apparently inspired after Cyrus' MTV Video Music Awards performance with Robin Thicke.
