ABC News received much ridicule for their medical blog post on twerking this week, inspiring the hashtag #ABCReports with much ridicule on twitter. Morgan Freeman even got into the act for CNN's Headline News as their "guest anchor", though at least his was a tongue-in-cheek report on the verb being added to the Oxford dictionary. A sign, no doubt, that the end times are near.
Twerking is such a complex, technical subject, only a Ph.D. researcher can explain how the body does what it does to make it happen.
Twerking is a combination movement involving a deep squat and a pelvic tilt, Michelle Olson, a professor of exercise science and a certified strength and conditioning coach at Auburn University in Montgomery, Ala., explained.
“You take a wide stance with your legs turned out at 10 and 2 so your hips are externally rotated,” she said. “Then you pulse up and down as you thrust the pelvis bone forward and back.”
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says schools should teach children about evolution and intelligent design because “the best thing to do is to allow all scientific facts on the table.”
In an interview that aired on CNN Wednesday night, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told Piers Morgan that suggesting that his views on homosexuality were bigoted proved that the CNN host was the one who was bigoted against the Catholic Church.
