Tan Mom Upset w/ Daughter's Sunburn
Samantha Sasso, Refinery 29
"Tan Mom" (a.k.a. Patricia Krentcil) came to fame five years ago when she brought new meaning to the term 'fake bake.' In case you need a refresher, her faux glow made headlines back in 2012, after she was arrested and charged with second-degree child endangerment for allowing her 5-year-old daughter to use a tanning bed. Well, it looks as though Tan Mom's thoughts on sun exposure are different now — sort of.
According to the New York Post, Krentcil is upset with the sun damage her daughter reportedly received while playing outside during school recess. (The irony is not lost on us here.) It all started when, her daughter Anna, now 11 years old, came home looking like a "french fry" even though her mom made sure to send her to school with sunscreen. Now, Tan Mom is ready fire back at the very school administration that spilled the beans on her child's alleged tanning bed treatments.
“After what they did to me, they didn’t put lotion on her?" Krentcil said to the Post. "This time, I’m going after them." She also added that her lawyer is creating a potential case against the Nutley Public School District for neglect. The mother of five said teachers at Lincoln Elementary “harass [Anna]. They always ask her, 'Are you OK [at home]?'"
Perhaps this means Tan Mom is making a change for the better. She told the publication, "Right now, I’m a good tan. I’m not as dark as I used to be." Baby steps.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY - July 16
Atom bomb successfully tested - 1945
On this day in 1945, at 5:29:45 a.m., the Manhattan Project comes to an explosive end as the first atom bomb is successfully tested in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
Plans for the creation of a uranium bomb by the Allies were established as early as 1939, when Italian emigre physicist Enrico Fermi met with U.S. Navy department officials at Columbia University to discuss the use of fissionable materials for military purposes. That same year, Albert Einstein wrote to President Franklin Roosevelt supporting the theory that an uncontrolled nuclear chain reaction had great potential as a basis for a weapon of mass destruction. In February 1940, the federal government granted a total of $6,000 for research. But in early 1942, with the United States now at war with the Axis powers, and fear mounting that Germany was working on its own uranium bomb, the War Department took a more active interest, and limits on resources for the project were removed.
Brigadier-General Leslie R. Groves, himself an engineer, was now in complete charge of a project to assemble the greatest minds in science and discover how to harness the power of the atom as a means of bringing the war to a decisive end. The Manhattan Project (so-called because of where the research began) would wind its way through many locations during the early period of theoretical exploration, most importantly, the University of Chicago, where Enrico Fermi successfully set off the first fission chain reaction. But the Project took final form in the desert of New Mexico, where, in 1943, Robert J. Oppenheimer began directing Project Y at a laboratory at Los Alamos, along with such minds as Hans Bethe, Edward Teller, and Fermi. Here theory and practice came together, as the problems of achieving critical mass-a nuclear explosion-and the construction of a deliverable bomb were worked out
