10 of the Best Portrayals of Athletes by Actors

Thereís lots of sports movies and lots of actors trying to pass as athletes, but very few can actually pull it off. I mean, have you seen Michael J. Fox playing basketball in Teen Wolf? Iíve seen epileptic quadriplegics with better coordination. And no, Iím not gonna make a Parkinsonís joke, so get bent. Anyway, becoming an athlete on screen isnít easy, but here are ten portrayals where the actor or actress was convincing. The rule for this rundown, though, is that the actor didnít play professionally in the sport that his character plays in the movie -so no Ray Allen in He Got Game. Got it? Good. Here are those ten performances, in no particular order.

7 Things Your Hands Say About Your Health

hey're one of the most important parts of our body when it comes to day-to-day activities; without them we couldn't cut vegetables, grip pliers, or text our friends. They're revealing, too: Not only do scars and age spots recount our personal history but mystics all the way back to prehistory have "read" our futures in their lines and whorls. But what if your hands could say more about you than that? What if, looking down at your palms and the five digits attached to them, you could discover early signs of conditions or diseases you weren't aware of yet? "It used to be common for doctors to look at the hands for important clues to overall health," says endocrinologist Kenneth Blanchard of Newton, Massachusetts. "We need to get back to that, because hands can tell you a great deal about circulation, hormones, and thyroid function."

12 Wonderful Hot Springs

A hot spring is a spring that is produced by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater from the Earth's crust. The hot spring pools contain microorganisms known as thermophiles, a type of extremophile. They are organisms that exist in the most unlikely, unlivable, and extreme places, hence their name. The color comes from the way that these thermophiles reflect the light of the sun. There are geothermal hot springs in many locations all over the crust of the earth, but many of these wonderful water bodies are concentrated in the Yellowstone National Park, USA.

The 20 Richest Rappers Alive Today

One of my new favourite websites has to be Celebrity Networth. Theyíve dedicated hours of time into figuring out how much not only celebrities make, but also other types of artists and a lot of historical figures. Iím going to be featuring a few of their lists here at LDU over the coming weeks starting with this list of the richest rappers alive, because it was the reason I found their site in the first place. Youíll notice there are actually 22 rappers on this list due to a few ties, but I donít mind that at all because it allowed Ricky Rauce to make the list at #20. Iíd also like to bring attention to the fact that a lot of the higher ranked rappers donít rap about money nearly as much as some of the ones that are ranked lower down on the list, as one might imagine theyíre too busy actually making money.

The 50 Hottest Prostitutes In Movies

Prostitution is the world's oldest profession, so it makes perfect sense that it has featured prominently in motion pictures since the dawn of moviemaking. The obsession with beautiful, half naked women who demand pay to play has not waned a bit, as evidenced by movies like Elles, in theaters now, where Juliette Binoche plays a journalist writing an article about two empowered female students (Joanna Kulig and AnaÔs Demoustier) who moonlight as prostitutes. The movie biz being the movie biz, it's rare to see a sex worker who's not stunning. And while we enjoy a realistically beat-looking Charlize Theron in Monster or a strung out Kerry Washington in The Dead Girl, we're not complaining. In fact, we're celebrating.
