• As a star of shows like "Jackass," "Viva La Bam," and "Bam's World Domination," Bam Margera has performed his fair share of exciting, dangerous, and straight-up dumb stunts for TV. He stopped by "Daily Shot" to talk about some of his best moments.

    What's the scariest thing he's ever done? "Doing the loop on a skateboard," he says, referring to a 20-foot loop he skated in 2005. Apparently, his fear only motivates him to do the stunt bigger and better. "Now me and Danny Way are going for a 40-foot one in the Caribbean on June 1st," Bam says.

    The stupidest thing he's ever done? "It wasn't actually on film, but I fell asleep on Virgin Airlines in the bathroom, drunk," Bam says of one fateful flight. "They had to jimmy the door open just to find me passed out half naked. I had to write Richard Branson an apology letter."

    It's hard to write about the women you love, but today, the 40th birthday of noted designer and former pop star and music sensation Victoria Beckham, is certainly an occasion worth noting. As she prepares to celebrate in low-key fashion with friends and family tonight in Los Angeles, we look back at Mrs. Beckham's poshest wardrobe picks over the years, tracing her evolution from slinky and sexy dresses to the subdued sheaths that have become a chic signature for her eponymous line. Her crowning moment came at her wedding to soccer star David Beckham in a custom Vera Wang replete with tiara. But the singer toned things down in favor of au courant ensembles including a bi-color slip dress at the VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards, while at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute's gala for "Goddess," she donned a neo-Grecian frock from Dolce & Gabbana with free-flowing hair. Playing with hair color, Beckham went bold and blonde at the civil partnership ceremony for

    There's no season like wedding season. Our mailboxes are stacked with invitations cut from luxurious paper, dressed in calligraphy. And we're sure each event will be its own, brimming with emotion and picture-perfect. Now, we're well aware that in order to throw a good wedding, you've got to plan-booking venues, sending out save-the-dates, tasting cakes-a good year in advance. But out of curiosity, we rang up a handful of bridal ateliers to learn how long it actually takes to secure a dress. In other words, if you're planning to elope this summer, you might want to head to Net-a-Porter.

  • More Mothers Are Staying at Home with Their Kids

    After a 30-year decline, more mothers are staying at home with their children.

    By Sally Holmes

    After a steady 30-year decline, the number of mothers staying at home to take care of their children is once again on the rise, a new study from Pew reports. Based on census bureau data, the study found that in 2012, 29% of mothers age 18 to 69 with children under 18 living with them, did not work outside the home-that's about 10.4 million more women than in 1999. Of that number, two-thirds are married, stay-at-home mothers with working husbands, but the other third is compromised of single mothers or married women with non-working or absent husbands.

    But not all of these women are staying at home by choice. The study finds that six percent of women in 2012 reported that they were staying home because they were unable to find a job, compared to one percent in 2000. Other reasons for staying home were due to illness, disability, or being enrolled in school. The study also cites the economic

  • 12 Questions That Teach Kindness in Your Children12 Questions That Teach Kindness in Your ChildrenWe encourage kindness in our children, above all else. In our home, we value and teach kindness above intelligence, talent, and responsibility.


    As parents, we are raising children whose character is built on thoughtful kindness. And it's working: In a day of endless stories of bullying, we are raising children who stand up for the bullied by stepping in. In a day of debates over whether children should be allowed in restaurants, we are raising children whose considerate behavior draws strangers to our table to comment on what a pleasure it was to have us as table-mates.

    In a house of three kids under 10 years old, we are working every day to raise siblings who know how to fight fair, know how to love and be loved, and who will be friends as adults. It starts at home, and we work at it every day.

    Our approach isn't foolproof. My 7-year-old is far more empathetic than his older brother. It's like empathy is his superpower. He can read emotions near flawlessly when he slows down enough

    Veer/The BumpA new study, just published in the journal Pediatrics by researchers from Boston Medical Center, suggests that you may want to think twice before turning over the remote to your fussy toddler.

    More from The Bump: Are time-outs good for toddlers?

    The study's lead researcher, Dr. Jenny Radskey, is recommending that parents not put their toddler in front of a TV to soothe any tantrums, because that could garner developmental issues later in life.

    "We found that babies and toddlers whose mothers rated them as having self-regulation problems - meaning, problems with calming down, soothing themselves, settling down to sleep, or waiting for food or toys - watched more TV and videos when they were age 2," says Radskey. "Infants with self-regulation problems watched, on average, about nine minutes more media per day than other infants. This may seem small, but screen-time habits are established in these early years."

  • Workplace happiness is key to your well-being.If you're like most people, you have one or two gripes about your job. Maybe your boss is a micromanager, you have a catty co-worker or you feel stifled creatively.

    While conventional wisdom says that the only way to improve your work life is to fix the parts you hate, it turns out that building on what you already enjoy about your job (fun co-workers, fulfilling work, amazing snacks...) could be just as effective.

    A 2013 study published in the journal PLOS One found that focusing on the positives at work can boost your well-being and make you happier. "This was an observational study looking at what happens when you change certain aspects of your work," says lead study author Stephen Stansfeld, professor of psychiatry at the Wolfson Institute of Preventative Medicine in London. "Our broad conclusion was that there are various positive aspects of work that increase one's well-being and building on these aspects is important."

    Kate Middleton and Prince WilliamKate Middleton and Prince William

    If Kate Middleton has been nearly overshadowed by the uncannily photogenic Prince George during this tour of New Zealand and Australia, then Prince William has been basically forgotten completely. Sure, he has sparred with Kate on the water, and reminded us of his presence via snippy comments about Kate's outfits ("too bright," you "look like a banana"). But today, like a petulant teenager crying out for attention, William raised eyebrows and heart rates around the world by standing very, very close to the edge of a cliff in Australia. As you can see here, the jeans-clad prince stood about 18 inches from the edge, peering down from the lookout, while Kate held her ground several yards behind him.
