This composite image made from multiple photogaphs taken on Sept. 22, 2014 in Schenectady, N.Y., constructed and provided by the photographer Vincent Giordano of Trinacria Photography, shows Schenectady High School senior Draven Rodriguez holding his cat Mr. Bugglesworth, along with Schenectady High School principal Diane Wilkinson holding her Chihuahua, Vivienne. The 16-year-old had originally wanted his senior yearbook portrait to show him holding his cat, with lasers in the background, but the school denied his request. Instead, this constructed image of Rodriguez and Wilkinson and their pets will appear on the principal's yearbook page, to raise awareness for the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and rescue animals.

In a settlement, Norm Thompson Outfitters of Oregon, and Wacoal America Inc. of New Jersey agree not to make claims that their products cause weight loss or a reduction of body size.
