Jeanne Calment

From Wikipedia:

Jeanne Louise Calment (IPA: [Ê’an lwiz kal’mɑ̃]; February 21, 1875 – August 4, 1997)[1] was a Frenchwoman with the longest confirmed lifespan in history at 122 years and 164 days (44,724 days in total).[2] She lived in Arles, France, for her entire life, and outlived both her daughter and grandson. Because her husband was wealthy, she never worked, instead living a comfortable lifestyle. She became well-known from the age of 113, when the centenary of Vincent van Gogh brought reporters to Arles, as she was the last person living to have met the artist.

Christian Bookstores Hide Gospel Today Magazine Because of Indecent Cover

A cover of female pastors sends the christian taliban into a tizzy.

Gospel Today, the Fayetteville-published magazine, was pulled off the racks by the bookstores’ owner, the Southern Baptist Convention. The problem? The five smiling women on the cover are women of the cloth — church pastors.

Southern Baptist polity says that’s a role reserved for men.

Teresa Hairston, owner of Gospel Today, whose glossy pages feature upbeat articles about health, living, music and ministry, said she discovered by e-mail that the September/October issue of the magazine had been demoted to the realm of the risque.
