Post Date: 2018-08-04 21:53:19 by Hondo68
MIAMI - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a reminder that some may laugh at. But apparently, it needs to be said. They are urging Americans to stop re-using condoms. The message was posted on Twitter earlier this week. "We say it because people do it: Don't wash or reuse #condoms! Use a fresh one for each #sex act." Research has found that as many as three percent of people have tried to reuse condoms, and half us have put a condom on too late or removed it too soon, the Daily Mail said. "Correctly using male condoms and other barriers like female condoms and dental dams, every time, can reduce (though not eliminate) the risk ...

Post Date: 2018-07-22 19:45:22 by CZ82
July 10 (Reuters) - A federal U.S. judge on Tuesday allowed hundreds of lawsuits alleging that Monsanto Co's glyphosate-containing weed-killer Roundup causes cancer to proceed to trial, finding that there was sufficient evidence for a jury to hear the cases. The decision by U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco, California, followed years of litigation and weeks of hearings about the controversial science surrounding the safety of the chemical glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto's top-selling weed-killer. Monsanto is a unit of Bayer AG, following the $62.5 billion takeover of the U.S. seed major which wrapped up in June. Chhabria in his 68-page opinion called ...

Why the DOJ wont defend the health care law in Texas v. United States. Unless you have been vacationing in a far away galaxy, you will have heard the ululations of Obamacare apologists enraged by the Trump administrations refusal to defend the health care law against a 20-state lawsuit challenging its constitutionality.Obamacare advocates claim that the failure to defend the ACA in Texas v. United States is an unprecedented dereliction of duty by the Department of Justice (DOJ). This is hysterical nonsense. It is indeed unusual, but the DOJ is by no means obligated to defend a law deemed unconstitutional by the President, as Attorney General Sessions explains in his ...

This morning our yard was abuzz with a chorus of songbirds. Summer tanagers, vireos, orioles, indigo buntings, goldfinches and cardinals had joined the resident bluebirds, woodpeckers, Virginia creepers, nuthatches, titmice and sapsuckers to complete the ensemble. Many had come in flocks, which was unusual before a few years ago. We live in a remote area, far from any cell phone towers. As these towers have become more ubiquitous the flocks of birds coming here increase. Others in urban areas say their songbirds have disappeared altogether. Many urban people are also reporting a massive decline in insect populations. With the discovery of the Schumann ...
The 10 professions with the most psychopaths
Post Date: 2018-05-17 05:44:21 by Deckard
Business Insider by Lindsay Dodgson Psychopaths are difficult to spot most of the time. Theyre not the Jack the Ripper caricatures you see in films or read about in books. Often, psychopaths appear normal, which makes them hard to identify. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-5, someone with a psychopathic personality type is defined as having an inflated, grandiose sense of themself, and a knack for manipulating other people. But a diagnosis is rarely simple. One thing psychopaths tend to have in common is the careers they go for. For example, youre likely to find a lot of them in leadership ...

Post Date: 2018-05-03 11:19:47 by Deckard
For better or worse, Kevin Smith is known today as one of Hollywoods most prominent potheads. But while the directors habit may have had a less-than-desirable result on his recent films, at least one doctor told him smoking weed may have saved his life during a massive heart attack earlier this year. The New Jersey native stopped by the Late Show on Tuesday night, where he discussed the February health scare that resulted from a 100 percent blockage of his left anterior descending artery. The condition is known as the widowmaker due to its high mortality rate, which Smith, 47, said kills 80 percent of people afflicted by it. Marijuana, however, helped ...

Banned Since 1985, MDMA could soon be approved as a PTSD treatment.The emotional hangover from Nigel McCourry's seven months in Iraq as a U.S. Marine plagued him for years, keeping him up at nights, troubling his sleep with recurring nightmares, and isolating him from friends and family. After he was diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 2011, McCourry tried "weekly talk therapy and more drugs than I could keep account of," none of which helped much. The one thing that worked for McCourry, leading to "huge breakthroughs" that immediately resolved his sleep issues, was psychotherapy facilitated by MDMA, which was banned by the Drug Enforcement ...

Uranus Smells Like Rotten Eggs
Post Date: 2018-04-24 11:54:01 by Willie Green
There's a lot of really smelly stuff wafting around Uranus. The clouds in Uranus' upper atmosphere are composed largely of hydrogen sulfide, the molecule that makes rotten eggs so stinky, a new study suggests. "If an unfortunate human were ever to descend through Uranus' clouds, they would be met with very unpleasant and odiferous conditions," study lead author Patrick Irwin, of Oxford University in England, said in a statement. But that wayward pioneer would have bigger problems, he added: "Suffocation and exposure in the negative 200 degrees Celsius [minus 328 degrees Fahrenheit] atmosphere, made of mostly hydrogen, helium, and methane, would take its toll ...

Bob Dole's erectile dysfunction ads, paid for by Pfizer, sent American men to their doctors in droves.Twenty years ago today, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved orally administered sildenafil citrate tablets for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in the U.S., under the brand name Viagra.
