At only five foot three she wouldn’t exactly be considered a leggy lady.But Isla Fisher sure made the most of her pins on Wednesday as she promoted her new movie in London.The actress showed off her limbs at a question and answer session for her film Now You See Me.
The 37-year-old star donned a short fitted frock with long sleeves which covered up the rest of her body but emphasised her legs. Isla teamed grey the item with red T-bar stilettos and left her long red locks out in a loose style.But as she propped herself up on a chair at the Apple store on Regent Street, she appeared to be having some trouble maintaining her modesty.

Dressed to impress: She wore a short fitted grey frock with thin black belt for the film promotion
She was spotted tugging away at her dress throughout the event and when she wasn’t animated using her hands to chat away, she placed them firmly over her bottom half.It might have made the wife of funny man Sasha Baron Cohen cringe if he saw the mother of his children Olive, five, and Elula, two, in the predicament.Isla was joined by Jesse Eisenberg to discuss the film which follows The Four Horsemen; a super-team of the world's greatest illusionists who pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders.

The 29-year-old created a rather tense atmosphere for a younger interviewer, mocking host Romina Puga while appearing on her Univision show, Say My Name With Romina.And it might be put down to his dry sense of humour initially, Romina says she was left feeling 'humiliated' and felt her self-esteem had been 'butchered'.

Every morning, millions of people perform an essential daily ritual - having their first cup of tea or coffee. It concentrates the mind and acts as a pick-me-up.
Or does it? The latest research suggests that familiar buzz doesn't so much as give us a lift, but fights the caffeine withdrawal symptoms - fatigue, mental fogginess and a dull headache - that have kicked in since our last cup.
Indeed, experts suggest that this morning ritual is actually a sign of mass drug dependency.
'People who consume caffeine regularly will become dependent on it - if you take caffeine away from them, they will function below par,' says Peter Rogers, professor of biological psychology at Bristol University and a leading expert on caffeine.
Shaking the habitual: Many can't start the day without a cup of tea or coffee, but it's been proven that caffeine doesn't actually jump start your brain
'They just don't function normally without the drug on board. If it's your first tea or coffee of the day, it gets you back to normal, but beyond that you don't get much more of a kick.'
Professor Rogers has studied coffee and its effects for more than 20 years and, as a result, he and other members of his team have given up caffeine.
'On balance, caffeine is not particularly helpful. It triggers withdrawal and increases your blood pressure, which is not a good thing,' he says. 'I sometimes think one of the biggest effects of my research work has been on my department. Four or five colleagues have given up caffeine, and we're all on decaf.'
WHY COFFEE DOESN'T GIVE YOU A BOOSTThe idea that caffeine doesn't perk up your brain might sound absurd, but that's what Professor Roger's research shows.
In one key study, around 300 volunteers - half had a moderate to high caffeine intake, the others had a low intake - were asked to stop drinking coffee for 16 hours before undergoing tests.
The volunteers were randomly split into two groups and given a placebo or coffee. The results, in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, were intriguing.
Though the regular coffee drinkers did have an increase in alertness following the coffee, this only made them as alert as non-coffee drinkers who had the placebo.
In other words, drinking coffee doesn't make us any more alert than non-coffee drinkers.
...BUT WHY YOU THINK IT DOES
Caffeine stops a brain chemical known as adenosine having an effect.
Addiction: Experts say that the ubiquitous morning cup of coffee or tea is a sign of mass drug dependency
Normally, adenosine helps slow down reactions in the body. As caffeine effectively stops adenosine latching onto cells, it means that when we drink it our body is constantly on the accelerator, not the brake.
Then within a few hours of stopping drinking coffee, the withdrawal effects start to kick in. In some cases, they can even cause flu-like symptoms.
Our body experiences a flood of adenosine, leading to fatigue. Many will also experience a dull headache.
This is because caffeine narrows blood vessels in the brain, says Professor Rogers, so when we stop drinking it, there is an increase in blood flow, which triggers a headache.
'On the rare occasions I have drunk coffee for a few days, when I stop I start to feel under the weather and think I am coming down with a cold,' says Professor Rogers.
'But then I remember - this is what caffeine withdrawal feels like.'
IT WON'T IMPROVE CONCENTRATIONAnother recent study by Professor Rogers involving 300 volunteers found coffee doesn't increase alertness, concentration or reaction time, but it will keep you awake.
'I have coffee when I'm driving across Europe, as I know it will keep me awake. But it wouldn't be helpful if I was trying to write a scientific paper late at night as it doesn't help focus or thinking.'
IS CAFFEINE GOOD OR BAD FOR THE HEART?Aside from triggering a physical dependency, what other effects does caffeine have on our health?One week we read a report showing caffeine is good for us; the next that it is bad. The experts are fiercely divided.
'It is a well-established and reliable fact that caffeine increases blood pressure,' says caffeine researcher Jack James, professor of psychology at Reykjavik University.
'The increase is modest, but likely to be clinically significant over the course of a lifetime of consuming caffeine.
'I'm confident that in time caffeine consumption will be regarded as a risk to cardiovascular health.'
One paper by Professor James, who is also editor of the Journal of Caffeine Research, suggests regular caffeine may account for 14 per cent of premature deaths due to coronary heart disease and 20 per cent of premature deaths due to stroke.
And in a study published just a few weeks ago, Australian researchers suggested a chemical in coffee called chlorogenic acid may increase the risk of diabetes and even lead to the body storing excess fat.
The study, published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, showed that when mice were given high amounts of this compound, the equivalent of drinking five or six cups a day, their bodies struggled to control blood sugar and they developed insulin resistance. They were also less likely to lose weight.
However, other research has shown that regular coffee and tea intake reduces the risk of stroke and heart disease, as well as neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's.
Buzzin': Coffee doesn't increase alertness, concentration, or reaction time, but it will keep you awake
Indeed, one large study undertaken by Harvard researchers, and published last year in the journal Circulation, suggested that moderate coffee intake (four cups a day) reduced the risk of heart failure. The team looked at research from five studies, involving more than 140,000 people.
'There is a growing body of research suggesting coffee is beneficial and this paper added to this,' says Dr Elizabeth Mostofsky, a post-doctoral research fellow and lead researcher of the paper.
Coffee consumption has also been linked to a lower risk of type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer.
However, as with everything, moderation is best. Drinking more than ten cups a day 'may be harmful', says Dr Mostofsky.
She suggests that patients who are at risk of stroke and not regular coffee drinkers may want to consider avoiding it. Some of her earlier research suggests the peak in blood pressure immediately after having coffee may briefly increase stroke risk (the effect was not seen for tea).
But, overall, Dr Mostofsky believes the effects are positive. 'It's nice to know there may be health benefits from the number one drug consumed,' she says.
SHOULD YOU SWITCH TO DECAF?So what are we to make of this wealth of apparently conflicting evidence?
Professor Rogers suggests that, in fact, the benefits of coffee and tea lie in the antioxidants that they contain - compounds that work to lower inflammation in the body.
Inflammation has been linked to a host of diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease and cancer, and so antioxidants consumed in tea and coffee may reduce the risk of these diseases.
This is why he still drinks decaffeinated tea and coffee (five cups of tea and one cup of coffee a day).
But he says the effect would not be seen with caffeine-filled energy drinks.
'Compounds in tea and coffee may be producing beneficial effects, but in other drinks, such as energy drinks, there aren't these naturally occurring compounds to balance out the effect of caffeine.'
And he believes that the rise in caffeine products will only fuel our dependency.
'I suspect caffeine intake will increase, and on balance that's not a good thing,' he adds.

paired by body weight (thin with thin, and overweight with overweight),
has lead one Californian woman to stand up and face bullies that taunt
her everyday.Gloria Shuri Nava, 25, from San Jose, is overweight. Her 22-year-old boyfriend of 18 months, Ali, who she met online, is 'fit and muscular'; and according to Miss Nave, many people can't comprehend why he would want to date her.In a candid essay for Yahoo!, Miss Nava writes: 'When people say things out loud, their

Miss Nava's YouTube channel, Glowpinkstah, where she reviews beauty products and shares details about her life, has more than 250,000 subscribers. 'While most are supportive, there are a fair number of bullies,' she says. Some of the more hurt questions she has received include: '"She has a boyfriend?

So despite what your gloating Facebook friends are telling you, only one in 10 kick start their beach body routine six months or more before hitting the pool side.
According to a 'Swimwear map of Britain' put together by the e-tailer, Yorkshire ladies are the most daring when it comes to their choices in swimwear, with one in five of those surveyed from the area opting for a push-up bikini.

The National Security Agency and the FBI have been pulling personal data directly from the main servers of nine top U.S. tech giants as part of a top-secret initiative dubbed PRISM, it was revealed today. The Washington Post, which broke the news Thursday, reported that for the past six years, U.S. intelligence agencies have been extracting audio, video, photos, e-mails, documents and other information to track people's movements and contacts.The Silicon Valley companies involved in the PRISM program are Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Skype, AOL and the lesser known Internet company PalTalk, which has hosted a lot of traffic during the Arab Spring and the on-going Syrian civil war.
Classified: The particulars of the PRISM data-mining program have been outlined in a top-secret PowerPoint presentation for senior intelligence analysts, which ended up being leaked
Bombshell: NSA and FBI have been extracting audio, video, photos, e-mails, documents and other data from Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Skype, AOL and PalTalk
Key source: PRISM has been described by NSA officials 'as the most prolific contributor to the president's Daily Brief,' providing analysts with a wealth of 'raw material'
The cloud-storage service Dropbox was described as 'coming soon' to PRISM. Twitter, which is known for zealously protecting its users' privacy, is conspicuous in its absence from the list of Internet companies involved in the data-mining program. PRISM was launched in 2007 with the blessing of special federal judges under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The Post said that several members of the U.S. Congress were made aware of the classified data-gathering program, but were sworn to secrecy.The particulars of the program have been outlined in a top-secret PowerPoint presentation for senior intelligence analysts, which ended up being leaked to The Post and Britain's The Guardian. According to The Washington Post, the tech companies are knowingly taking part in PRISM, but The Guardian reported than all nine pleaded ignorance of the program. In a statement issued by Google, the company said it 'cares deeply about the security of our users' data. We disclose user data to government in accordance with the law, and we review all such requests carefully.
Participants: This graph shows when each of the nine tech companies joined PRISM, with Apple being the latest addition in October 2012
Denial: Google released a statement insisting that the company has not created a 'back door' into its system for the government to access its users' private information
Damage control: All nine companies allegedly involved in the spying program, among them Microsoft (left) and Apple (right), have denied knowledge of PRISM
'From time to time, people allege that we have created a government "back door" into our systems, but Google does not have a back door for the government to access private user data.'Apple Inc on Thursday said it does not provide any government agency with direct access to its servers, denying a key aspect of a Washington Post report.
Social media tool: Analysts targeting a potential terrorist or a spy would draw in information from his Facebook account, including his contacts
'We have never heard of PRISM,' Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said. 'We do not provide any government agency with direct access to our servers, and any government agency requesting customer data must get a court order.'Asked whether Apple joined the NSA-FBI data collection program, Apple declined to comment beyond its brief statement.
According to the Post, PRISM has been described by NSA officials 'as the most prolific contributor to the president's Daily Brief' and the 'leading source of raw material.' As a cryptolific intelligence agency of the U.S. Department of Defense, the NSA is responsible for collecting and analyzing foreign communications and foreign signals intelligence. However, the agency allegedly has been using PRISM to target American Internet companies handling the accounts of domestic users on U.S. soil. Analysts working for the NSA would reportedly pick out bits and pieces of data using search terms to help them zero in on foreign targets, but it is not unusual for American content to become swept in as well.
In practice, if collection managers in the NSA's Special Source Operation Group, which manages PRISM, have suspicion that their target is a foreign national engaged in terrorism or a spy, they move ahead to draw in all the data from the user's Facebook account, email inboxes and outboxes, and Skype conversations, which would often net in information on the suspect's contacts. The 41-slide PowerPoint presentation outlining PRISM was leaked to the media by a career intelligence officer, which the Post says had 'firsthand experience with these system, and horror at their capabilities.' The unnamed whistle-blower reportedly said he was driven by the desire to expose the government’s ‘gross intrusion on privacy.''They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,' the officer said.
Outsider: Twitter, which has a reputation for protecting its users' privacy, was not on the list of Internet companies involved in the data-mining program
Spying: The NSA has been getting millions of phone records from Verizon on a daily basis for months without any justification for the order, that was only revealed today
The bombshell allegations come one day after it was revealed that the NSA has been collecting telephone records of millions of U.S. Verizon customers.The Obama administration defended the order on Thursday, calling it 'a critical tool in protecting the nation from terrorist threats.'
Double bind: Part of the order mandated that Verizon not tell its' customer's about the record transfer nor could they admit that the order existed

Two new cases of hepatitis C have been reported in a health scare involving patients of a Tulsa oral surgeon whose clinics were found to be unsanitary.The Tulsa Health Department says the two new cases were found among the thousands of Dr. W. Scott Harrington's patients who have been tested since March.A total of 73 patients have tested positive for hepatitis C, five for hepatitis B and three for HIV, but there is no indication the diseases spread at the clinics. Health experts also say the spread of disease in dental clinics is extremely rare.More than 4,000 of Harrington's patients have been tested so far. As many as 7,000 people may have been exposed to blood-borne viruses.
Health scare: Two new cases of hepatitis C were found among the thousands of Dr. W. Scott Harrington's patients who have been tested since March
Inspectors said they found unsanitary conditions inside Harrington's clinics at Tulsa and Owasso, where it it believed that Harrington used rusty instruments and recycled needles. Harrington voluntarily stopped treating patients March 20 and is said to be cooperating with the investigation.The department says they will personally contact those who have tested positive for any of the diseases and will offer them and their family counseling.The department notes the possibility that some that test positive may not be related to the dental procedures at the Harrington practice.
'This is a complex investigation,' emphasized State Epidemiologist Dr. Kristy Bradley last month.Health officials opened their investigation into Harrington's surgeries after a patient with no known risk factors tested positive for both hepatitis C and HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. It turned out the person was a patient of Harrington's and had recently had a dental procedure at one of his clinics.
Investigated: A health scare was sparked over the work of Dr Wayne Scott Harrington, an oral surgeon in Tulsa. Now at least three of his patients have tested positive for HIV and 73 for hepatitis COn one occasion authorities launched a surprise inspection at his practice on March 18 that turned up old needles, rusty instruments and a practice of pouring bleach on patients' wounds, until they 'turned white,' according to a complaint filed by the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry.While testing for HIV and hepatitis continues among former patients of Harrington, the criminal investigation continues with the involvement of both state and federal authorities.Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris has released a statement regarding the allegations against Harrington by the Oklahoma Board of Dentistry.
The state dental board filed a 17-count complaint calling Harrington "a menace to the public health.'
Among the allegations, Harrington allowed dental assistants to administer IV sedation and reused equipment on multiple patients.It is improper sterilization procedures such as this that could have infected many of his patients with any number of blood-borne viruses.Among the claims was one detailing the use of rusty instruments in patients known to have infectious diseases that were dipped twice in bleach in hope of cleaning them.‘The CDC has determined that rusted instruments are porous and cannot be properly sterilized,’ the board said of that practice.Harrington told officials he left questions about sterilization and drug procedures to his employees.‘They take care of that, I don't,’ the dentistry board quoted him as saying.
'The goal is to do a thorough investigation and then make some common sense decisions on potential criminal charges and which agency is in the best position to prosecute any case,' Harris said. Based on the number of individuals to be interviewed and the involvement of both federal and state investigators, Harris says the investigation is likely to be a long one. 'Once an investigation is complete, the case will be reviewed for potential criminal charges.'
Nearly 200 patients of Dr. W. Scott Harrington line up outside the Tulsa Health Department North Regional Health and Wellness Center in Tulsa to be tested for HIV and hepatitis
Health inspectors found expired morphine and dirty, rusty instruments that were used on patients with infectious diseases inside an Oklahoma dental clinic, putting thousands of people at risk for hepatitis and the virus that causes AIDS.Health officials opened their investigation after a patient with no known risk factors tested positive for both hepatitis C and HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. After determining the 'index patient' had a dental procedure about the likely time of exposure, investigators visited Harrington's office and found a number of unsafe practices, state epidemiologist Kristy Bradley said.Inspectors allege workers at his two clinics risked cross-contamination to the point that the state Dentistry Board branded Harrington a 'menace to the public health.'According to the inspectors' complaint, needles were re-inserted in drug vials after their initial use and the office had no written infection-protection procedure.Harrington told officials he left questions about sterilization and drug procedures to his employees.'They take care of that, I don't,' the dentistry board quoted him as saying.The doctor also is accused of letting his assistants perform tasks only a licensed dentist should have done, including administering IV sedation. The complaint says the doctor's staff could not produce permits for the assistants when asked.Susan Rogers, executive director of the state Dentistry Board, said that as an oral surgeon Harrington regularly did invasive procedures involving 'pulling teeth, open wounds, open blood vessels.' The board's complaint also noted Harrington and his staff told investigators a 'high population of known infectious disease carrier patients' received dental care from him.Despite the high-risk clientele, a device used to sterilize instruments wasn't being properly used and hadn't been tested in six years, the board complaint said. Tests are required monthly.Also, a drug vial found at a clinic this year had an expiration date of 1993 and one assistant's drug log said morphine had been used in the clinic last year despite its not receiving any morphine shipments since 2009.
Shocking: Health officials are urging 7,000 patients of an Oklahoma dentist (pictured Dr. W. Scott Harrington's dental office in Tulsa) to seek medical tests to ensure they haven't been exposed to the virus that causes AIDS
Health risk: The agencies said they found 'major violations' of the Oklahoma Dental Act (pictured the dental office is Owasso)
'The office looked clean,' said Joyce Baylor, who had a tooth pulled at Harrington's Tulsa office 1½ years ago. In an interview, Baylor, 69, said she'll be tested next week to determine whether she contracted any infection.'I'm sure he's not suffering financially that he can't afford instruments,' Baylor said of Harrington.Harrington voluntarily gave up his license, closed his offices in Tulsa and suburban Owasso, and is cooperating with investigators, said Kaitlin Snider, a spokeswoman for the Tulsa Health Department.
Investigation: Letters were sent to 7,000 patients from Harrington's clinics in Tulsa and suburban Owasso since 2007 recommending testing for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV (stock photos)
'It's uncertain how long those practices have been in place,' Snider said. 'He's been practicing for 36 years.'The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is consulting on the case, and agency spokeswoman Abbigail Tumpey said such situations involving dental clinics are rare.
Last year a Colorado oral surgeon was accused of reusing needles and syringes, prompting letters to 8,000 patients, Tumpey said. It wasn't clear whether anyone was actually infected.'We've only had a handful of dental facilities where we've had notifications in the last decade,' Tumpey said.The Oklahoma Dentistry Board lodged a 17-count complaint against Harrington, saying he was a 'menace to the public health by reasons of practicing dentistry in an unsafe or unsanitary manner.' Among the claims was one detailing the use of rusty instruments in patients known to have infectious diseases.'The CDC has determined that rusted instruments are porous and cannot be properly sterilized,' the board said.Health officials sent letters to 7,000 known patients but cautioned that they don't know who visited his clinics before 2007. The letters urged the patients to be tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV — viruses typically spread through intravenous drug use or unprotected sex, not occupational settings.
