Laurel versus Yanny is dividing the nation. It seems like we had barely settled down from the blue and black (or white and gold?) dress debacle, when YouTube star Cloe Feldman decided to publish a four-second video originally posted on Reddit by user RolandCamry. Within a couple days, the clip asking viewers whether they hear the word “Laurel” or the word “Yanny” has garnered over 100,000 likes on Twitter–and sparked intense debate. Everyone from Health staffers (full disclosure: I am a Laurel) to Chrissy Teigen and Mindy Kaling can't seem to agree, so we felt it was time to call in an expert. Don Vaughn, PhD, a neuroscientist and musician, is helping us make a sound judgment on the matter. “It's a really interesting phenomenon,” he tells Health. The brain tries its best to create "one unified model of the world," he says–but at the end of the day, one person's individual brain is just one individual interpretation, he explains. "Your brain's job is to construct the most likely reality, so it makes the best guess.” The result? In a split second, you hear either Laurel or Yanny. RELATED: How to Tell If Your Earbuds Are Hurting Your Hearing But, Vaughn argues, you can probably hear both. “If I say, ‘I know you hear it as Yanny, but I want you to sit here and listen to Laurel, I think most people can hear it either way,” he says. “It's a conflict between our first gut reaction and the fact that there is another interpretation, but it's inconvenient to do that work.” In addition to your brain's unique interpretation of the clip, whether you hear Laurel or Yanny also depends on your ability to hear high and low frequencies. Like Teigen told Kaling, “They're saying younger, more beautiful people hear yanny!!!!!" And she might be onto something. Inside your ears are small sensors called hair cells. They pick up on sound waves and send them to the brain, Vaughn says. "If you lose all your hair cells you can't hear.” Noise exposure can damage these hair cells, and they don't grow back. Vaughn speculates that people who are older and have fewer hair cells are more likely to hear Laurel because they can't hear the higher frequencies of Yanny. “We know that other animals on the planet specialize in hearing different frequencies," he says. "Some birds only hear high frequencies, and whales hear low-frequency content. It's not a [...]

Over the weekend, fitness influencer Adrienne Osuna posted a mirror selfie wearing a new pair of bikini bottoms. Nothing out of the ordinary about that. But instead of showing off taut, toned abs like other social stars, Osuna made what she called her “squishy tummy” the focus on the post. Here's what she had to say about it: 1. Squishy tummies are cool 2. I almost didn't post this [because] I'm in ‘regular' bikini bottoms instead of high waisted ones buttttt... 3. seriously who cares. 4. I bought myself these bottoms today and a lounge chair so I can lay out & I'm super excited about it.” Osuna, who owns Ariya Activewear, frequently posts transformation photos of herself and others, typically with the message, “Weight is just a number.” Her inspiring social media posts have struck a chord with users; she has nearly 70,000 followers on Instagram. RELATED: 5 Signs You're Getting Fitter—Even If the Scale Hasn't Budged To encourage others to eat intuitively and feel body positive, Osuna is motivating her followers to get off the weight-loss merry-go-round. She revealed that she'd been a yo-yo dieter since she was a preteen, but recently announced that she's stopped dieting for good. “I've struggled for a year now because I'll do really well then something will throw me off and it starts all over,” she wrote last month. “I'm DONE. I won't do it to myself anymore. This post is for anyone that can relate and to just let you beautiful people know that it will be slow, it will probably take me a while to get back to where I was but I'm totally feeling myself. I feel like a huge weight is lifted.” [...]

British fashion brand Missguided has been pushing the celebration of diversity for quite some time now. Their previous campaigns such as #KeepBeingYou and #MakeYourMark feature people of all shapes, sizes, races, and sexual orientation. Their latest love-yourself move is encouraging people to feel more comfortable in their skin—no matter how 'flawed'. (Related: This Woman Was Bullied for Her Vitiligo So She Transformed Her Skin Into Art) Dubbed #InYourOwnSkin, their new campaign images include women whose skin you might normally see covered up or underrepresented in mainstream advertising. But rather than viewing their scars, birthmarks, freckles, albinism, and other skin conditions as 'imperfect', Missguided is embracing them in hopes of removing the stigma that surrounds skin that's simply different. "As a continuation of our #KeepOnBeingYou movement, we collaborated with six empowering women who have inspired us to capture their uniqueness in our #InYourOwnSkin campaign," Missguided shared on their website. "These babes continue to challenge the world's perception of beauty and exude the confidence to be comfortable #InYourOwnSkin." Here's everything you need to know about the ladies spearheading this incredible movement: Isabella Fernandes Isabella, 19, suffered from severe burns all over her body when her shirt was caught in a house fire two years ago. By pursuing her dream of becoming a model, she hopes that more women will be encouraged to embrace their burns and not let their scars hold them back. "I think having shoots that are specifically based on scars or difference or body positivity are really great and a really good start," she said in an interview with the brand for its #InYourOwnSkin campaign. "But ultimately the goal is to have a mixture of women in the same space, so women with a disability or disfigurement are also considered normal." Mariana Mendes This 24-year-old Brazilian was born with a birthmark on her face. Over the years, she has learned to love the way she looks and has used social media to encourage others to do the same. Polly Ellens The full-time model was born with beautiful freckles dotting her face and is all about women supporting other women. "Being constantly jealous, hateful, and envious can be soul-destroying," she said in an interview with the Missguided. "It's also the cause for some women's issues when women are put against other women. We need to turn that into women supporting women."

If you ask fitness influencer Ally Tokar, being in her early 40s means looking and feeling better than she did in her 20s. Tokar took a walk down memory lane recently and shared two bikini photos on Instagram: one of her at 27 and the other at 42, her current age. She completed her comparison with a message about how she views herself now versus then. “Your 40s can be way better, like unbelievably, extraordinarily, infinitely, SO MANY ADVERBS better than any previous decade,” she captioned the 15-year before-and-after post. “Yes! even your 20s when you thought you were doing pretty good until you compare it to a picture from now and you're like, ‘Hmmm. I kinda think I look better now, even after 2 kids INCLUDING ONE THAT WEIGHED OVER 8 POUNDS.'” Tokar's before-and-after clearly isn't about weight loss. She previously shared a post about how she was always slender, but her body transformed from thin to fit after she got hooked on fitness three years ago. "I started working out because I needed to. I was skinny, but not fit," she wrote previously. This is the latest of several transformation posts from Tokar, who recently put up a side-by-side photo with her husband Kory. We loved her all-too-relatable message about losing weight with her husband. While Tokar struggled with weight loss, her husband, Kory, had a much smoother ride. “And all he had to do was eat a few salads over 3 months and he has a V," she wrote, describing the lines that connected his abs and hips. "Do you have a V? I don't have a V. WHY DON'T I HAVE A V?????”” she wrote in April. In addition to these before-and-after images, Tokar regularly shares videos of her yoga routines and progress with her 85,000+ Instagram followers. How a person ages has to do with genetics, but it's also about things you can control, such as eating healthy and staying fit. Clearly, Tokar has benefited from the latter. [...]

Everyone responds to grief in a different way. And everyone finds their own way of dealing with grief. Here, 13 people share the strategies that helped them cope with loss. I screamed “When my mom died in 2013, I was 21 and it totally shattered my world. I felt so trapped and suffocated during the first days and weeks of my grief and I kept trying to think of a way to release the pain I was feeling. Eventually, I climbed into the passenger seat of my dad's truck and just screamed. I yelled at God, swore a ton and really let it all out. I screamed until I didn't have a voice anymore. In that moment I felt so exhausted and so full of pain but also so relieved because that pressure that had been building up inside of me finally was released.” —Shelby Forsythia, Chicago I made a list of the good “The way I found comfort after I lost my dad to leukemia 20 years ago is by making a list of all the good things that came out of his sickness and death. For the longest time, my memory of my father was of him in the ICU, feet swollen, unable to communicate, and me the day after his death sitting in my dark bedroom, crying. But by writing this list, I focused on the better memories. For example, when my dad was initially diagnosed, a family friend introduced us to a doctor. We went for dinner at his home and I met his daughter who was my age. She became my best friend, and introduced me to my now-husband! I truly believe my father has been with me every day and has provided this goodness and so much more.” —Aneela Idnani, Minneapolis I wrote in my journal “When I lost my father to murder, journaling gave me a way to express myself both to my father and to the man who murdered him. It gave me a way to put feelings into words privately so that I didn't need to fear being judged by other for expressing things that were sometimes ugly, mean, and even self-destructive, the kind of thoughts I don't often linger on and don't like to share. At times, I'd begin writing when I felt sad and, by the time I finished, I discovered that what was really going on was anger, loneliness, or some other feeling that [...]
