  1. Twitter to introduce stricter content NSFW guidelines — worrying adult content creators by Cara Curtis — Dec 5, 2019 - 20:5610 days ago in Tech Over the past year, social networking platforms Facebook and Instagram have made it almost impossible for NSFW artists to exist on the platforms in their efforts to ‘clean up’ the sites. The measures employed have ranged from banning any discussion around “sexual preference,” “sexual roles,” “breasts,” and “buttocks” to the tech giant’s latest stunt in restricting solicitation that involves “sexual emoji or emoji strings.” The trend of deteriorating conditions for NSFW artists to make a living online first started last year when Tumblr announced that it would block anything it considered to be adult-rated visual content. Now, Twitter, a platform that tolerates sexual expression, has joined the censorship-ranks by changing its guidelines around its “sensitive media policy.” As of January 1, 2020, the social networking site will ban “violent sexual conduct” and “gratuitous gore content.” As pointed out by The Daily Dot, Twitter defines adult content as media that is “pornographic or intended to cause sexual arousal,” including “cartoons, hentai, or anime involving humans or depictions of animals with human-like features.” Twitter considers “violent sexual conduct” to be any media that portrays violent actions alongside sexual interactions, “whether real or simulated” such as simulated lack of consent and sexualized violence. Adding to this, Twitter can remove any material “that depicts violent sexual conduct or gratuitous gore anywhere” and can also permanently ban accounts that are “dedicated to posting this type of content.” Wave goodbye to NSFW-content While blocking “violent sexual conduct” seems like an easy move to clean up its platform and prevent offensive material from circulating on Twitter, multiple NSFW artists have voiced their concerns over this policy update signaling a complete NSFW-content ban in the coming year.

  2. After $1 Billion Theft, German Museum Finds It Has No Insurance By Stefan Nicola ‎26‎ ‎November‎, ‎2019‎ ‎9‎:‎42‎ ‎PM A day after burglars made off with priceless jewels from a German museum, pressure is growing on police to find the culprits. One big reason: The diamond-encrusted dagger, pearl necklace, and dozens of other glittering artifacts—estimated to be worth more than $1 billion by the local press—were uninsured. The German state of Saxony, the owner of the Green Vault museum in the eastern city of Dresden, carried no insurance on the jewels, standard practice because the premiums typically exceed potential damages in the long-term, the state Finance Ministry said Tuesday. While public museums usually insure works of art that are loaned to other institutions, they often don’t take out policies on their permanent collections, according to Julia Ries, head of fine art and jewelry at insurer Ergo Group AG. “The budgets of public museums are limited,” Ries said. “You can’t replace such a collection from a monetary or art-historic value. If the jewels aren’t recovered, this part of the collection will be lost forever.” The insurance shortfall was revealed as more details of the theft became clear. Police believe the burglars set a fire nearby to create a power outage, then broke a window to enter the museum. Though the total number of culprits is unknown, two people quickly smashed a display case, snatched the loot, and fled. The whole thing took “just a few minutes,” police said. Here’s how the robbery went down early Monday: Shortly before 5 am: Streetlights in the area go dark after someone sets fire to an electrical junction box. About the same time: Thieves cut through a metal grate covering a window and break the glass to enter the museum. 4:57-4:58 am: Two people enter the Green Vault’s jewelry room. One, wearing a headlamp, shatters the display case with an ax to remove the gems. 4:59 am: The two security officers on duty spot the burglars on camera and call the cops. 5:04 am: Police arrive at the scene, but there’s no trace of the thieves. 5:09 am: Sixteen police cars are dispatched throughout Dresden to look for the getaway car -- believed to be an Audi A6 sedan. Around 5:15 am: Police are notified that an Audi A6 is burning in a nearby underground garage. Monday morning: After the fire is extinguished, Dresden police search the museum and garage for further clues, but haven’t apprehended the criminals. Bild, a daily tabloid, reported that the jewels are worth about 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion), without saying where it got the estimate. Museum officials have said the collection includes unique ensembles of diamonds that are of priceless art-historic value, declining to give a financial value. Even as the scale of the loss became clear, some good news emerged: The thieves weren’t able to rip out all of the jewelry, some of which was sewn onto fabric lining the display cases. And one of the museum’s best-known treasures, the 41-carat Dresden Green Diamond, is on loan to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-11-26/-1-billion-in-jewels-two-thieves-no-insurance
  3. Malaysia's last known Sumatran rhino dies 23 November 2019 The Sumatran rhino is now officially extinct in Malaysia, with the death of the last known specimen. The 25-year-old female named Iman died on Saturday on the island of Borneo, officials say. She had cancer. Malaysia's last male Sumatran rhino died in May this year. The Sumatran rhino once roamed across Asia, but has now almost disappeared from the wild, with fewer than 100 animals believed to exist. The species is now critically endangered. Iman died at 17:35 local time (09:35 GMT) on Saturday, Malaysia's officials said. "Its death was a natural one, and the immediate cause has been categorised as shock," Sabah State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Christine Liew is quoted as saying. "Iman was given the very best care and attention since her capture in March 2014 right up to the moment she passed," she added. Sumatran rhinos have been hard hit by poaching and habitat loss, but the biggest threat facing the species today is the fragmented nature of their populations. Efforts to breed the species in Malaysia have so far failed. Facts about the Sumatran rhino Five rhino species can be found today, two in Africa and three in Asia The Asian species include the Sumatran rhino, Dicerorhinus sumatrensis, which is the smallest living rhino species The animal is closely related to the woolly rhinoceros, which became extinct about 10,000 years ago No more than 100 Sumatran rhinos remain in the wild (some estimates put the number as low as 30), scattered on the islands of Sumatra, Indonesia https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-50531208
  4. Britain’s ‘first gay dads’ split after one starts dating daughter’s ex By Kenneth Garger | November 17, 2019 | 8:23pm | Updated Tony (left) and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow in 2013 The well-documented relationship between Britain’s “first gay dads” has officially come to an end — as one of the men is now “in love” and dating his daughter’s ex-boyfriend, a report said. Tony and Barrie Drewitt-Barlow — who were England’s first same-sex couple to be named on a birth certificate as parents — have parted ways and Barrie opened up about their new unconventional living arrangement to The Sun on Saturday. “I’ve fallen in love with Scott and he has done the same,” said Barrie, 50, referring to the ex of his 19-year-old daughter, Saffron, who is openly bisexual. “I feel stupid at my age to have these feelings about someone other than Tony and half my age. But when you know something is right, it’s right. We have not made definite plans but I would like to marry Scott.” Scott, 25, and Barrie are continuing to live in the family’s $7.5 million Florida mansion, along with Tony and Saffron and the rest of the family. Barrie & Scott Barrie told the paper that his estranged husband and Saffron are accepting of the relationship. Tony、Barrie、Scott (Daughter's ex)、Saffron(Daughter) “I’m not having a midlife crisis — if I was having one, I’d buy myself a Porsche 911,” Barrie said. “This is the real deal. But not everyone will get it, as our living arrangements are unorthodox — I feel like I’m living in a commune, we are all still living together.” Barrie and Tony in 1999 welcomed twins born to a surrogate and declared themselves “Britain’s first gay dads,” The Sun said. The couple became civil partners in 2006 and married in 2014 once it became legal to do so in the UK, the report said. They have five children. Barrie said that while Tony is his “true love,” they grew romantically distant in recent years, with the two sleeping in separate bedrooms. That, together with Tony’s deteriorating health following a 2006 cancer diagnosis, led them to drift “into a platonic relationship.” https://nypost.com/2019/11/17/britains-first-gay-dads-split-after-one-starts-dating-daughters-ex/
  5. @karbatal Beware! Gay man infected with dengue after fucking his bf. First sexually transmitted dengue case confirmed in Spain By Harriet Alexander 8 November 2019 • 8:13pm Spanish health authorities have confirmed a case of a man spreading dengue through sex, a world first for a virus which until recently was thought to be transmitted only by mosquitos. The case concerns a 41-year-old man from Madrid who contracted dengue after having sex with his male partner who picked up the virus from a mosquito bite during a trip to Cuba, said Susana Jimenez of the Madrid region's public health department. His dengue infection was confirmed in September and it puzzled doctors because he had not travelled to a country where the disease, which causes severe flu-like symptoms such as high fever and body aches, is common, she added. "His partner presented the same symptoms as him but lighter around ten days earlier, and he had previously visited Cuba and the Dominican Republic," she said. "An analysis of their sperm was carried out and it revealed that not only did they have dengue but that it was exactly the same virus which circulates in Cuba." A "likely' case of sexual transmission of dengue between a man and a woman was the subject of a recent scientific article in South Korea, she said. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/11/08/first-sexually-transmitted-dengue-case-confirmed-spain/
  6. Prep users who's into bareback sex beware! The surveillance of viral changes persists to keep the blood supply safe By Karen Weintraub on November 6, 2019 A research group at the medical-device and health care giant Abbott has discovered a new strain of human immunodeficiency virus, or HIV—the first to be identified in 19 years. Abbott continues to look for potential new HIV strains to ensure that diagnostic tests for blood screening and detecting infectious diseases remain up to date, says Mary Rodgers, senior author of the paper announcing the finding and head of the company’s Global Viral Surveillance Program. The new strain, called HIV-1 group M subtype L, is extremely rare and can be detected by Abbott’s current screening system, Rodgers says. The company’s tests screen more than 60 percent of the global blood supply, she adds, noting it must detect every strain and “has to be right every time.” In the early days of HIV/AIDS in the 1980s and 1990s, some blood donors unaware that they had HIV added the virus to the blood supply. A large number of patients who needed regular blood transfusions—among them, many with hemophilia—ended up contracting HIV and often dying. The supply has been essentially clear of HIV for years, and Rodgers says efforts such as Abbott’s will help keep it that way. The study, published today in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes, serves as a reminder of the dangerous diversity of the HIV virus, says Jonah Sacha, a professor at the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute at Oregon Health & Science University, who was not involved in the new research. “This tells us that the HIV epidemic is still ongoing and still evolving,” he says. “The calling card of HIV is its diversity. That’s what’s defeated all of our attempts to create a vaccine.” More than 37 million people live with HIV worldwide—the most ever recorded. “People think it’s not a problem anymore, and we’ve got it under control. But, really, we don’t,” Sacha says. Antiretroviral drugs inhibit the virus’s reproduction and spread, but they have significant side effects, he says. Even when drugs keep HIV under control, patients are at higher risk for blood cancer, cardiovascular complications and other problems. The danger from the virus persists. A radically new viral strain could evade detection in the blood supply, avoid being controlled by drugs and render future vaccines ineffective, Sacha says. “Viruses break through all the time, and we’re not ready to deal with them,” he adds, “just like what happened with the original HIV.” But Michael Worobey, head of the department of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona, who was also not involved in the recent study, is more sanguine. Worobey says it is not a surprise that there are a diverse number of HIV strains in Central Africa, which is where the disease originated. Identifying a new one does not add much to the knowledge of HIV, he says. “It’s actually misleading to describe genetic diversity from the [Democratic Republic of the] Congo as a new subtype,” Worobey says, “because the only useful meaning of the term ‘subtype’” would come from identification of a lineage of the virus that has spread significantly beyond Central Africa. Guidelines for classifying new strains of HIV were established in 2000. The recently discovered subtype belongs to the most common form of HIV, group M, which accounts for more than 90 percent of all HIV cases, Rodgers says. Abbott created its surveillance program 25 years ago to track changes in HIV and hepatitis viruses. “We really need to be monitoring them to stay one step ahead of the virus,” Rodgers says. The program now includes 78,000 samples from 45 countries. No other new subtypes have been characterized since 2000, she adds. The most recent of the three samples used to identify HIV-1 group M subtype L has been sitting in an Abbott freezer since 2001. The amount of virus in the sample was too low to read back then, but new technology recently made it possible. Comparing that sequence with the others made available by the research community, Abbott researchers found two additional examples of the strain—in samples from 1983 and 1990, also from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, hinting that it has been around for a while. “Now that we know it exists, it’ll change how we look for it,” Rodgers says. The company’s tests focus on the part of the viral genome that does not change very much from generation to generation, which is why it was able to detect the new strain. The finding also suggests there are more strains to be found, Rodgers says. “The full diversity has not been characterized. We’re going to continue to look.” https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/first-new-hiv-strain-in-19-years-identified/?fbclid=IwAR0UJrr1mmWFp87HTDuXHV7YUTBuWU2TtVvZf-oOC1Lns0vdEH4od30cGxA
  7. Human Ken Doll EXCLUSIVE: Rodrigo Alves reveals devastation after discovering his nose is COLLAPSING again following 11th rhinoplasty By Rebecca Davison for MailOnline | 7 October 2019 He's been very vocal about having had 72 cosmetic procedures, costing in excess of £600k. But the Human Ken Doll, real name, Rodrigo Alves, 36, has discovered that his love of going under the knife has come with a price - and not just a financial one. Talking to MailOnline, he revealed that after having his 11th nose job back in January, to fix previous botched procedures, it has started to collapse again. He said: 'The results of this surgery were very pleasing at first but now I am going to have to have another surgery because it is sinking and I am scared, to be honest. 'Each time is riskier than the last and I'm worried that doctors aren't going to be able to fix my nose permanently.' Rodrigo had the last risky procedure to help him to breathe after his nose started to sink once before, but doctors warned him that he could be left with a hole in his face if he continues to have operations. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-7545527/Rodrigo-Alves-reveals-nose-COLLAPSING-again.html
  8. Yes, this is real and it's happening. For those who love to do this during photo taking or selfie, beware!!! If your finger is within 3m from the camera lens, the hackers can extract your finger prints to access your phone. https://thehackernews.com/2014/12/hacker-clone-fingerprint-scanner.html It was "difficult" to duplicate the fingerprint back in 2014 due to the camera megapixel constraint but it would be easier nowadays since most of the phones come with > 10 megapixel HD camera lens.
  9. If you think cooking meth outside Walmart is shocking, this bitch cooking meth in walmart! Tulsa police arrest a woman for mixing chemicals to make meth inside a south Tulsa Walmart on Thursday. Elizabeth Alisha Greta Halfmoon, 45, also known to go by Alisha Halfmoon, was arrested for endeavoring to manufacture meth at the 81st and Lewis store. Police say surveillance video shows Halfmoon had been in the store since noon. Six hours later security noticed she was acting suspicious, so they called Tulsa police. Responding officers say she claimed she was "too broke to buy the chemicals." "She didn't have the money to make the purchases of the chemicals that were needed so she was taking what was needed in the bottle," says Officer David Shelby. Shoppers inside the store had no idea someone was cooking meth. "This is a family store," says Jessica Fuentes, who also had her 1-year-old son inside the store. "People need to start thinking. If she has family she needs to think about her family. If you are broke. It's just wrong." "When I saw her she had just finished mixing sulfuric acid with starter fluid in a bottle," says Officer Shelby. They immediately got her, and the ingredients, out of the store before any of the shoppers got hurt. No one was evacuated. "Something could have happened, something could have blown up in there," says shopper Jonathan Tary. "When firefighters were on the scene she made statements to them that is what she was doing, she was attempting to obtain these chemicals and was in the process of trying to manufacture meth. However, she said she was not very good at it," says Shelby. A responding officer didn't know the bottle was active. As he was discarding the bottle the chemicals burned through the bottle and through his gloves. He was treated for chemical burns on his hands and is okay. Police say they arrested Halfmoon just last month in a smurf sting. Smurfs are known among police as meth cooks or recruits who purchase pseudoephedrine to make meth. The medication is often found in cold and allergy medicines and is the main ingredient needed to make meth. Jail records show she was booked on November 6 and released from jail on those charges on December 6. Records show she received a deferred sentence and bonded out on $7,500. In this case her bond has been set at $100,000 and her arraignment is set for December 16th. In October, Glenn Reese was arrested at that same Walmart with a backpack containing what police called an active meth lab. Drainage ditches and tunnels in that area have been a common place for meth making and using, according to Tulsa police.
  10. Texas Couple Allegedly Cooking Meth in Walmart Parking Lot Arrested: Police By Jason Murdock On 1/23/19 at 5:45 AM EST Two suspects were arrested in Texas yesterday after police inspected a suspicious vehicle at a Walmart parking lot and found them allegedly cooking drugs. Robert Robles Jr., 34, and September Alvarez, 22, were detained after cops responded to the scene at roughly 3 a.m. Tuesday, News 4 San Antonio reported, citing a police report. It later emerged that Robles Jr. had provided a fake name to deputies. He had been named in a warrant for a probation violation in the state of California. During a search of the couple's car, officers from Converse Police Department said they discovered a stash of illicit materials. This included five handguns, meth, drug paraphernalia, 50 caliber rounds, shotgun shells and stolen IDs. One of the firearms, reportedly a semi-automatic, had been reported stolen. According to KTSA, a radio station in San Antonio, Texas, officers initially suspected the pair of cooking meth because of the odor coming from the vehicle. The news outlet reported a hidden compartment in the car's dashboard appeared to be used to cook the drug. "They had either just began to prepare the methamphetamine for injection or had just done just that," Converse PD Lt. Jeff Shook commented, KSAT-TV (ABC) reported in an on-air news segment. Images obtained by the station showed the covert area covered with tin foil. "There was a half of a soda can in there," Shook explained. "It appeared as if they were actually cooking their methamphetamine in that compartment." In brief statements after their arrest, while being transported by the cops, the pair appeared to deny charges against them. "We were parked at Walmart just chilling, talking," Alvarez told KSAT-TV. Robles Jr. added: "There was no sign that said no parking." The suspects were charged with "possession of a controlled substance, theft of a firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, unlawfully carrying a weapon and unlawful possession of identifying information," KTSA reported. Robles Jr. was individually facing a separate charge of being a fugitive and failing to identify himself to the police officers. Earlier this year in Texas, a woman was banned from a Walmart store after she allegedly spent hours drinking wine from a Pringles can while riding about in an electric shopping cart. Cops were called about 9 a.m. Witnesses said the woman had been at the location since 6:30 a.m. https://www.newsweek.com/texas-bexar-county-converse-robert-robles-jr-september-alvarez-walmart-meth-1301190
  11. Arkansas Woman Caught Smuggling Meth Bags Disguised as Bow in Her Hair: 'Are You Serious?' By Ewan Palmer On 5 Oct 2019 at 10:13 AM EDT An Arkansas woman has been arrested after a police officer found her wearing a small bag of methamphetamine in her hair which was disguised as a bow. Jessica Bernice Kropp, 38, is accused of a string of offenses after she was pulled over in her vehicle on Industrial Road in the town of Flippin on September 24. Flippin police officer Kenneth Looney said he spotted a Dodge Neon driving out of a storage unit business which had an expired registration. According to an affidavit, seen by The Baxter Bulletin, Kropp initially refused to pull over when asked by the officer and continued to drive round a nearby neighborhood before eventually coming to a stop. She then informed Looney that her driving license was currently suspended. She also said she did not have insurance and did not know where the registration for the vehicle she was driving was because she was borrowing the car. The officer then found that Kropp had five valid warrants out for her arrest across several counties and towns; four for failure to appear and one for failure to pay fines. Looney then informed Kropp she was under arrest and ordered her out of the car. After she got out, Looney said he noticed a bow in the suspect's hair that "appeared to be a small, zip-locked bag containing a white crystal-like substance of suspected methamphetamine," the affidavit states. "I said 'Are you serious?' She said 'What,' I said 'You have a bow in your hair made from a bag of meth,'" Looney wrote in the arrest report. "She said '(expletive deleted), 'I didn't know that was there, someone else put that there and I didn't know what it was.'" Looney then asked if Kropp had any other illegal items in her possession. Upon a search of her purse, he found several more bags of meth and other paraphernalia, as well as one vape pen containing THC oil and another loaded with THC oil and meth. The officer told Kropp that he would only charge her with one count of drug paraphernalia possession despite all the items she had on her because she was being cooperative. The officer also said he would not tow the car because she hadn't hindered his search after she allegedly "begged" him not to do so. Kropp was later charged with a failure to appear misdemeanor, possession of meth with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license and no liability insurance. Online records show that she is currently being held at Marion County jail in lieu of a $22,530 bond. https://www.newsweek.com/arkansas-meth-bow-hair-jessica-kropp-1463374

  17. Indian woman, 73, gives birth to twin girls 6 September 2019 A 73-year-old woman in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh has given birth to twin girls. Doctors delivered the twins, who were born following IVF treatment, on Thursday. "The mother and the babies are doing well," Dr Uma Sankar, the woman's doctor, told BBC Telugu. Mangayamma Yaramati said she and her husband, who is 82 years old, have always wanted children but had been unable to conceive until now. "We are incredibly happy," her husband Sitarama Rajarao told BBC Telugu on Thursday, hours after the babies were born. But just a day later, Mr Rajarao suffered a sudden stroke and is currently being treated in hospital. "Nothing is in our hands. Whatever should happen will happen. It is all in the hands of God," Mr Rajarao had said when asked who would care for the children in case anything were to happen to the couple due to their advanced age. Having children was important to the couple, who also said that they felt stigmatised in their village. "They would call me a childless lady," Ms Yaramati said. "We tried many times and saw numerous doctors," she added, "so this is the happiest time of my life." The twin girls were delivered by Caesarean section, which is the usual method in such rare cases. In 2016, another Indian woman in her 70s, Daljinder Kaur, gave birth to a boy. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-49575735
