The industry is clearly balking at having any external guidelines that limit the pool of talent from which they can discriminate.

Charm is a sort of bloom on a woman. If you have it, you don’t need to have

anything else; and if you don’t have it, it doesn’t much matter what else you have.

A great man is always willing to be little.

Every body knows that life seems to be expensive, but different people require cash for different issues and not every one earns enough cash. Hence to get good personal loans or short term loan would be good solution.

Four short words sum up what has lifted most successful individuals above the crowd: a little bit more.

This is bull. Yes anorexia is a disease, but designers and modeling agencies should't be risking the lives of girls to sell clothes. One of the biggest debates is about the marketing strategies to sell to buyers, but as a designer and a business woman, I feel that if people feel the need for their models to have the waist size 0--the size of an 8 year old--they should be using and 8 year old. There is nothing wrong with showing curves at all. If you look at what modeling agencies call their plus size models size 6 (US) and up, you realize that they are calling most women around the world FAT. I don't think agencies have the right to use the Americans with Disabilities Act to justify why they are risking lives to sell clothing. And to the people who reject everyone who is not size 0 or the like, that could be called discrimination, which is illegal. As a designer I will NEVER use a model who has a BMI of less than 18.5 which is anorexic. However, most models used on runways are below a BMI of 16 which is the BMI of someone who has starvation and is on the brink of death.

Cunningham was in part inspired by Apple's HyperCard. Apple had designed a system allowing users to create virtual "card stacks" supporting links among the various cards. Cunningham developed Vannevar Bush's ideas by allowing users to "comment on and change one another's text

If people would see what was under the clothing they modeled, maybe people would not find them as attractive

The folks who cast fashion shows and shoots employ all sorts of crazy -- and probably illegal -- reasons to exclude/include a given model. Too tall. Too short. Too young. Too old. Too curvy. Not sexy enough. Whatever. The industry is clearly balking at having any external guidelines that limit the pool of talent from which they can discriminate.

Right on! I don't think that anorexia can possibly be conceived of as a disability. The legal definition is:
“The term ‘disability’ means, with respect to an individual –
(a) a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities of such individual;
(b) a record of such impairment; or
(c) being regarded as having such an impairment.” (P.L. 101-336, Sec. )

The ADA definition is an inclusive definition that tends to capture both the largest and broadest estimate of people with disabilities. It describes a disability as a condition which limits a person’s ability to function in major life activities – including communication, walking, and self-care (such as feeding and dressing oneself) – and which is likely to continue indefinitely, resulting in the need for supportive services.

There's more at the site where I got this,
including the major categories of disability, including mobility impairment, cognitive impairment, hearing impairment, visual impairment, and speech impairment. It's damned hard to be classified as disabled by state and federal agencies.
