  1. Do I have to change my underwear? Will it get me far?
  2. TMI: Nearly half of Americans don’t change underwear daily, new survey says By Theresa Braine | New York Daily News | Aug 15, 2019 | 7:52 PM These skivvies are skeevy. Nearly half of Americans have worn the same pair of underwear for two or more days, according to a survey by apparel maker Tommy John. Out of 1,000 people responding to an informal poll conducted by the underwear maker, 45% admitted they had worn the same pair of undies for two or more days, with 13% saying they had worn the same pair for a week or more, Tommy John said. “Conventional wisdom — and basic common sense — tells us that we should change our underwear every day, or at least wash them after every wear,” Tommy John said in its statement announcing the results. “But how many people actually follow this golden rule? After surveying 1,000 Americans, we found that this basic standard of underwear hygiene is definitely not universal.” In a finding that did not surprise the company, Tommy John said men were 2.5 times as likely as women to wear unwashed underwear for a week or more. That’s 20% of men versus 8% of women. Though perhaps not aesthetically pleasing, going a day or two with the same pair is not a health deal breaker, NYU microbiology and pathology professor Philip Tierno told Huffington Post last year. But he advised against wearing the same skivvies consecutively for longer than that. The Tommy John survey also covered underwear replacement and found that 46% of respondents don’t follow the pervasive wisdom that recommends swapping out old for new every six months to a year. Not only that, but 38% of respondents did not know how long they’d had their underwear. Men and women scored equally on this one, Tommy John said. Even that is not carved in stone, Tierno said. “As long as they function properly and you wash them and the elastic is fine, and they fit fine, there’s no holes or fabric erosion, you can use them,” Tierno told HuffPo last year. “There’s no end period, except when it’s mechanically dysfunctional.” Overall, because underwear sits next to skin containing E. coli despite our best efforts, and because washing it never kills all that bacteria, there is always going to be something there. “We are bathed, as a society, in feces,” Tierno said. “But it’s normal, and it doesn’t hurt you.” http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-change-underwear-tommyjohn-survey-20190815-2jmi33jahvbi3eytrtpfydzxqm-story.html
  3. I feel bad for the passengers... They didn't get their complimentary peanuts.
  4. Drunk flight attendant busted after passing out for entire trip By Amanda Woods | August 9, 2019 | 10:42am | Updated Flight attendant Julianne March A boozed-up flight attendant was busted in Indiana after passengers saw her stumbling all over the cabin — and then passing out in her seat for the entire flight, according to new reports. Julianne March, 49, of Waukesha, Wis., was charged Thursday by St. Joseph’s County prosecutors in connection with an Aug. 2 incident on a flight from Chicago to South Bend, the South Bend Tribune reported. Passengers on the morning flight quickly realized that something was not right with March, who was part of an Air Wisconsin crew working a United Express flight, according to the report. “Hey @united, our flight attendant appears to be quite drunk on this [flight] from from [sic] ORD to SBN,” passenger Aaron Scherb tweeted. “She is slurring her speech (she couldn’t make it through the security announcement), couldn’t walk straight/was bumping into everyone in the aisle, and kept dropping things.” March fell asleep in the jump seat after takeoff, and passengers even had to fasten her seat belt, Scherb told the local outlet. Another passenger, who only gave his name as Dan, told ABC News that even the pilot wasn’t able to get in touch with March. He said the “whole plane … noticed something was wrong” and that the attendant’s phone rang “multiple times without her answering” it. “[That] to me was the most concerning part because the pilot wasn’t able to communicate with the lone flight attendant and took off anyway,” he said. Local police boarded the plane as soon as it landed in South Bend, according to the report. When officers asked a crying March which city she was in, she said Chicago, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the outlet. Julianne March Her blood-alcohol level was 0.204 — five times the legal limit for flight attendants, the outlet reported. On her way to the St. Joseph County Jail, she told an officer she had two vodka “shooters” before arriving to work that morning, according to the Tribune. Air Wisconsin told the Tribune in a statement that “the flight attendant was detained by authorities after a report of possible impairment.” “We are investigating the situation and fully cooperating with the local authorities,” the regional airline said. March was a probationary flight attendant who was only working a few months and was fired because she didn’t complete the probationary time period, a source told ABC News. “We expect our regional carriers to take appropriate action as required when issues like these happen with their employees,” a United Airlines spokesperson told the network. “Legally and with regards to regulatory agencies this is an Air Wisconsin issue.” March was charged with criminal public intoxication, a misdemeanor, according to the reports. She was released on her own recognizance, and an initial hearing is scheduled for Aug. 29. https://nypost.com/2019/08/09/drunk-flight-attendant-busted-after-passing-out-for-the-entire-flight/

  8. Pastor said he was 'sucking demons' out of men he sexually assaulted 'You don't have to be afraid anymore, I'm your protector now,' the pastor allegedly told one of his victims 19 July 2019 16:43 BST | Josh Milton A Presbyterian pastor in New Jersey accused of sexual assault has defended himself by saying he was exorcising evil, demonic spirits from the men. Three parishioners came forward and claimed that 69-year-old Reverend Dr William Weaver sexually assaulted them, according to Newsweek. When the three came for private counselling from the Reverend, he would say he needed to ‘suck’ out the demoms through their semen. Balancing acts According to impact statements the men submitted to the Presbytery of Elizabeth, which has jurisdiction over the church in Linden, Weaver would order each man to strip naked and lie down. Then he would place an ‘angel coin’ on their foreheads and have them balance stones on their hands and ankles. During this, Weavers would then perform oral sex on the men. The pastor cited Native American rituals and a verse from Ephesians telling Christians to ‘put on the full armor of God.’ One man, AJ Meeker, explained how he started visiting Weaver about family problems in 2000, when he was 20. ‘I refuse to stay silent any longer,’ he wrote in his statement. ‘I need to make sure that this never happens to anyone else ever again.’ Moreover, another man who came forward, Jared Staunton, said that after the reverend assaulted him, he allegedly ‘lifted my head up and looked into my eyes, and said: “You don’t have to be afraid anymore, I’m your protector now.”‘ After that, the pastor kissed him on the lips. Gay porn found on his church computer In June, the three men, along with a woman who claimed Weaver similarly assaulted her, filed a lawsuit in Middlesex County Superior Court. Alongside Weaver, they are suing the Linden Presbyterian Church, the Presbytery of Elizabeth and the Presbyterian Church (USA). This resulted in an investigation by the Presbytery that found evidence of ‘multiple acts of idolatry and sexual misconduct.’ Investigators also found male-on-male porn on a church-owned computer in Weaver’s office. ‘A Jekyll and Hyde’ Weaver had worked at Linden Presbyterian for around 39 years. He also served as chaplain for the local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Association. Audrey Pereira, a representative for the chapter, described him as ‘a Jekyll and Hyde.’ ‘He did good on one hand,’ she told My Central Jersey. ‘On the other hand, he did this evil to who knows how many. It can’t just have been these guys. ‘There has to be more.’ https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/pastor-said-he-was-sucking-demons-out-of-men-he-sexually-assaulted/#gs.qa0ime

  10. Virginia Man Sues Godiva Because the Belgium Chocolates Are Not Made in Belgium The Virginia man is now seeking $74,000 in damages after purchasing what he claims were falsely-advertised chocolates By Joelle Goldstein | July 18, 2019 11:55 PM A Virginia man is taking legal action against Godiva after he claims their products were falsely-advertised. The lawsuit, which was filed on Wednesday, alleges that the chocolates purchased by the man in Washington D.C. were not actually from Belgium as they were advertised on the packaging, according to documents obtained by NBC 4’s Scott MacFarlane. The lawsuit states that “Belgian 1926” was displayed across the front of the chocolates, which would lead a “reasonable consumer” to assume that the product was made in Belgium at a “premium” price. Instead, the document reads, “all Godiva chocolates sold in the United States are created at a plant in Reading, Pennsylvania.” The man is now seeking $74,000 in damages, according to MacFarlane. Representatives at Godiva did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment. Godiva was founded by the Draps family in 1926 after initially starting as a small praline-making business in Brussels, Belgium, according to the company’s website. The company was initially called Chocolaterie Draps but later changed their name to Godiva (after Lady Godiva) once the family decided to open an exclusive chocolate shop. In 1966, the family crossed paths with the Campbell Soup Company, who eventually acquired a third of a stake in Godiva and went on to introduce it to the American public. Though they no longer own Godiva, Campbell’s played a major role in helping the chocolatier expand all over the world, with more than 600 stores currently in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. The soup company also bought a plant in Reading, PA during the 1960s to help with production, which has since become the spot where the company makes chocolate for the U.S. market. The Belgian plant, meanwhile, produces for the rest of the world, according to Godiva’s website. This isn’t the first time that Godiva has faced legal action over the origin of their chocolate. Earlier this year, the company was sued by two people who similarly claimed the brand was falsely-advertising their products due to the “Belgium 1926” wrapper, according to Yahoo. The plaintiffs sought $5 million in damages and demanded a jury trial, but the case was eventually dismissed the outlet reports. https://people.com/food/man-sues-godiva-belgium-chocolates-not-from-belgium/

  12. Researchers eliminated HIV from the DNA of infected mice. It's the first step toward a cure for humans, they say By Scottie Andrew and Saeed Ahmed, CNN 19 hrs ago Researchers have successfully eliminated HIV from the DNA of infected mice, a promising step toward a cure for the nearly 37 million people living with the virus. In a study published Tuesday in Nature Communications, researchers from Temple University's Lewis Katz School of Medicine and the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) coupled genome editing technology with a slow-release virus suppression drug to eliminate HIV cells entirely from some infected mice. Current HIV treatment cannot eliminate the virus entirely but does suppress its replication. Antiretroviral therapy, or ART, requires lifelong use to stall the virus' spread and, as a May study found, can potentially end the transmission of HIV between sexual partners. Testing their methods on a group of infected "humanized mice," or rodents engineered to produce human T cells susceptible to HIV, researchers administered a treatment called LASER ART, or long-acting, slow-effective release ART, to suppress HIV cells from replicating. The team modified the drug for a slow release across several weeks, targeting tissue in the spleen, bone marrow and brain where latent HIV reservoirs, or clusters of inactive HIV cells, were likely to occur. To eliminate the remaining infective cells from the subject's DNA, they employed a gene editing tool called CRISPR-Cas9. The process allowed the teams to "clean segments of the genome" and remove the HIV chromosome, co-author Kamel Khalili told CNN. By the study's end, researchers had successfully eliminated the virus from nine out of 23 mice. The results prove that HIV can be eliminated, researchers say The two labs initially began their research separately: Howard Gendelman at UNMC pursued trials with LASER ART, while Khalili at Temple University had been tampering with CRISPR technology for five years. They combined their efforts to attempt complete elimination of the virus. And their lofty goal required a unique approach. Khalili said he treated HIV as a genetic disease: Once the virus infects a subject, the viral genome enters into the chromosome and becomes a "bad gene," he said. Combination therapy was a prime way to attack HIV from both angles: Slow its spread first with LASER ART, then edit it out completely with CRISPR. To confirm they'd eradicated the virus, a process that took years, Gendelman told CNN the team examined every "nook and cranny" of the mice's tissue where infected cells may lurk. The results are proof that elimination of HIV is possible—but they're just a first step, not a leap straight to cure, he cautioned. "We're landing on the moon," he said. "It doesn't mean you made it to Mars yet." Khalili's labs have been working on a version of the study with primates, though it'll take between 9 months to one year to discern if the virus is eradicated. A paper based on the short-term results of gene editing in primates could be published within the year, he said. If their methods continue to prove successful, clinical trials could follow as soon as next summer, he said. Recent attempts to cure HIV have sparked hope Hope for a cure swelled in March when researchers announced a second person had been effectively rid of HIV after a stem cell transplant successfully eliminated any trace of the virus from his blood. Both patients, known as the London and Berlin patients, were treated with stem cell transplants from donors born with the CCR5 genetic mutation that made them resistant to the virus. The men, already infected with HIV, were diagnosed with forms of cancer when they received the treatment. The London patient had been in sustained remission for 18 months at the time the article was published, researchers said. In 2018, an HIV vaccine concept got the go-ahead for further testing after a study found it induced an immune response in humans and monkeys. Its effectiveness in protecting humans from the virus is still unknown. https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/researchers-eliminated-hiv-from-the-dna-of-infected-mice-its-the-first-step-toward-a-cure-for-humans-they-say/ar-AADKOwP?fbclid=IwAR393UQQQ5Aul4W7ySJciPfYtty9s_dqV8FiXe1YN6Z2YI7hG1Duk0cKP7M
