Sure, my baby is only 14 months old, but it's not uncommon for parents to think about their child's future, no matter how young she is. Well, if I had to predict what careers would be good a fit for my daughter based on her skills and personality at this very moment, I would say it would be one of these 5 professions.

- Mon, Feb 3, 2014 3:26 PM EST | CommentsAccording to a recent article in The Daily Beast, "As an alternative to plastic surgery, some people, primarily teens, are now turning to a low-tech solution: Torturous-looking products that claim to mold the users' features into the "ideal" standard of beauty." What's the reasoning behind this new at-home DIY trend? Well, it's much more cost-effective than the real thing, and there's been an increasing trend of plastic surgery in several Asian cultures - it's less of an "if" and more of a "when." CNN recently reported on the skyrocketing rates of cosmetic surgery in many Asian countries - Korea leads the world in cosmetic enhancements with China and Japan not far behind. Patients as young as twelve are undergoing procedures like eye-fold surgery which involves slicing an additional crease into one's eyelid to make eyes appear wider and more "Western." While the turn to at-home facial re-figurement may be a natural evolution in an over saturated market with rising costs, medical professionals are beginning to see more and more self-inflicted disfigurement. According to an NBC report - "Cosmetic surgeons are concerned the DIY trend is "impairing" the underdeveloped bodies of adolescents, explains Dr. Hong Jung Gon, of the Metro Plastic Surgery Clinic in Seoul. So just what do these DIY miracle face-changers look like and how do they (claim to) work? Below, a quick sampling of the medieval doohickies. -By Morgan Shanahan

For many of us (read: everyone but Seattle Seahawks fans), last night's Super Bowl was a seriously boring, pitiful excuse for a football match-up. The highlight, in fact, didn't have anything to do with the action on the field or even the big-money commercials (#EsuranceSave30, right?). Instead, our evening peaked with a botched coin toss and an outrageously oversized fur coat-yep, we're talking about Joe Namath.
We were equal parts entertained and confused by the eccentricity and somewhat arbitrary nature of the coat. Honestly, that thing was huge and not even necessary thanks to the game's nearly 50-degree temperatures. But for those of us who know more about such peacocking outerwear than touchdowns, we did our research and found this particular fur wasn't really a surprise at all.
The NFL icon and legendary, longtime New York Jets quarterback first began sporting long, furry coats in the 1970s (at a game against the New England Patriots on November 11, 1973, to be precise). Nicknamed "Broadway Joe," he instilled such a trend amongst the league that the NFL eventually banned fur, requiring all NFL personnel to wear league-approved gear during games. So, there you have it: the coat was less of a statement and more of tradition.
We've picked a handful of our favorite fur coats (faux or not) from around the internet for you to shop now-as well as tracked down an original photo from Joe's original fur-wearing game in 1973. Click through above now to see it all.

Competing in the Olympics is a dream most of us had to give up after being rejected by the soccer team back in middle school, but for a select group of young athletes, the Games are about to become a reality. They've put in years of hard work and, as cream-of-the-crop competitors, are poised to step onto the global stage to prove themselves-no pressure, right?
Now that they're converging on Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics (which start February 7!), here's a handy guide to the insanely talented girls of Team USA.
