Via Mirror Online: Mum tells police miracle boy fell into sewage pipe. The mum said she gave birth unexpectedly and she raised the alarm after trying and failing to stop him falling down the sewage pipe. The mum of the miracle baby who survived after being flushed down a loo claimed she was abandoned by his dad after she became pregnant following a one-night stand. The mum said she gave birth unexpectedly and she raised the alarm after trying and failing to stop him falling down the sewage pipe. The newborn boy, identified only as Baby 59 after his hospital incubator, was found in the four inch wide pipe at a rundown block of flats in Jinhua, eastern China. Rescuers were alerted after his cries were heard from the plumbing system and it took them two hours before they could free him by cutting an L-shaped section of piping. The unnamed woman, aged 22, said she told her landlord about "kitten like" sounds but initially did not admit to being the mother because of her shame. Covered in excrement and with his placenta still attached, the 6lb 2oz tot was taken to hospital where he was initially feared to be suffering from a fractured skull. However, despite his ordeal, he only had minor abrasions and was otherwise unharmed. The baby’s mother claimed that she was unmarried, could not afford an abortion, and had to keep her pregnancy secret from family and friends.

Via American Power: Today's Guardian contains more proof, if proof were needed, that Harriet Harman's Equality Act poses a direct threat to free speech. It has published a letter from 11 lawyers, including a QC, threatening supermarkets with legal action unless lads' mags are immediately withdrawn from sale. "Displaying these publications in workplaces, and/or requiring staff to handle them in the course of their jobs, may amount to sex discrimination and sexual harassment contrary to the Equality Act 2010", it says. "Similarly, exposing customers to these publications in the process of displaying them is capable of giving rise to breaches of the Equality Act".

Via India Times: In a scene right out of Star Trek, a Texas company is developing a 3D food printer for astronauts to create custom meals on the fly. With support from NASA, the firm, Systems and Materials Research Corp of Austin, intends to design, build and test a food printer that can work in space. "This project is to demonstrate we can create and change the nutrition of the food and be able to print it in a low-gravity environment", the company's research director and lead chemist, David Irvin, said. Three-dimensional printers create solid objects by depositing droplets of material one layer at a time. One of the first goals for SMRC’s printer is the humble pizza. It was chosen because it contains a variety of nutrients and flavors, said David Irvin, director of research at SMRC. More importantly, a pizza is made up of layers, a key principle used in 3-D printing technology. Systems and Materials intends to create nutritionally rich, aesthetically appealing, and tasty synthetic food by combining powdered proteins, starches, fats and flavors with water or oil to produce a wide array of digital recipes. All the ingredients are designed for extremely long shelf-lives, making them suitable for long stays in space. "The 3D printing system will provide hot and quick food in addition to personalized nutrition, flavor and taste", the company wrote in its proposal to NASA. "The biggest advantage of 3D printed food technology will be zero waste, which is essential in long-distance space missions", it added. The project was presented at the Humans 2 Mars Summit in Washington earlier this month. At the presentation, Anjan Contractor, an engineer at SMRC and the project manager, explained how the idea originated: he had used a 3-D printer to print chocolate for his wife. The chocolate experiment led the company to think about other kinds of food that could be printed. A space-food printer doesn’t actually exist yet — it’s still a concept, which the company hopes to develop by the end of the year using NASA’s grant money. Ultimately, the company sees food printers as a way to help feed a world population that is estimated to reach 12 billion by the end of the century. The technology may also have implications for the military. "A 3D-printed food system can reduce military logistics, disposal waste, increase operational efficiency and mission effectiveness especially during wartime", the company said. "In addition, 3D printed food can provide optimal nutrient to the soldiers depending on their personal needs and level of physical activities". A Dutch research company, TNO, floated the idea that 3-D printers could use several forms of organic life as a protein component — algae, grass, or even insects. Eventually Irvin sees a day when food printers will play a role in everyday diet and nutrition. "The initial plan is to work with NASA and the astronauts and then as things become commercially viable, we will definitely consider weight loss and weight gain" applications, Irvin said. The company's six-month, Small Business Innovation Research study contract, worth up to $125.000, is pending, said NASA spokesman Allard Beutel.

Via The Local: The UK Foreign Office has issued a travel warning for Sweden after arsonists tore through several Stockholm suburbs, while Americans have been warned to stay out of the affected areas by their embassy. "Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence", an email sent to US nationals living in Sweden cautioned on Friday. "We recommend that US citizens avoid the areas where such demonstrations are occurring if possible, and, as always, exercise caution in the vicinity of any parades or protests". While the email cited Swedish police, who had told them the situation was contained, the embassy nonetheless sent out a list of suburbs to avoid, including Husby, Tensta, Kista, Rinkeby, and Fittja. The British also urged caution. "You should avoid large gatherings, take care and monitor local news reports", the Foreign Office stated on its website. "There have been riots in the suburbs of Stockholm every night since 19 May. Suburbs affected so far are Husby, Hagsätra, Rågsved, Skogås". The foreign office said that almost 600.000 Brits visited Sweden last year, and said most visits had been incident-free. After five nights of rioting throughout the outskirts of Stockholm, many in Sweden and elsewhere are trying to make sense of it all.

Via The Local: Emmelie De Forest from Denmark takes over from Sweden's Loreen as the Eurovision Song Contest champion, capping a spectacle that kept Malmö and the rest of Europe cheering on Saturday night. Tipped as one of the early favourites, the 20-year-old De Forest didn't disappoint, with her song, Only Teardrops, raking in the most votes from viewers across Europe. "This is totally fantastic", De Forest told Danish television. "I'm so happy". Denmark's victory was mathematically determined before all the votes had been counted. Sweden's entry Robin Stjernberg finished in 14th place. Viewers and professional juries in 39 countries picked the winner together, with tele-voting and juries each representing 50 percent of the outcome. The win by Denmark closed out a marathon evening of pop music performances by artists from 26 countries that wowed the crowd on hand in Malmö. The evening began with an opening number written by Abba's Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, along with Swedish DJ and producer Avicii. While the music ranged from heartfelt ballads to upbeat dance tunes, the evening also featured a number of humourous interludes that showcased Sweden in a self-deprecating manner. Swedish comic Petra Mede also won plaudits for a stellar performance as Eurovision host, which included a leading role in a sprawling Broadway-esque production that used dancing meatballs, pram-pushing dads, and bikini-clad blondes to poke fun at Swedish stereotypes. Welsh balladeer Bonnie Tyler was the biggest name to participate in Eurovision this year, but the 61-year-old didn't pack enough star power to impress viewers or jurors. Denmark jumped to an early lead in the voting, with Ukraine, Norway, and Azerbaijan also pulling away from the other contenders after half the votes had been counted. Sweden's neighbor to the south merely added to the early lead as voting continued, with Denmark eventually amassing 281 points. The win marks Denmark's second win at a Sweden-hosted Eurovision, with the Danes emerging victories at the 2000 Eurovision Song Contest held in Stockholm.

Via Disclose.tv: "This is no exaggeration: you were born to put death to death". ~ Leonard Perimutter Bruce Lipton, a leading development biologist who believes that genes and DNA can be manipulated by our beliefs is not the only brilliant mind to propose such a mind-bending idea. In fact, he says that our DNA and cells do not control our health, our emotions do. The major crisis of the human race is not of raising our IQs, it is one of elevating our WILL quotients. We must will ourselves to happiness, and thereby experience true health. While we can't nor should stuff our emotions down, including negative ones, we can learn to control them and shift our attention to positive feelings as often as possible to dramatically change our bodies right down to our DNA. Scientists have now been able to measure emotions, including their physiological response on the body. For example, anger causes higher cholesterol levels and a faster resting heart rate. Prolonged sadness can cause depression, which leads to a depleted immune system. Unexpressed or sublimated emotions will get stuck in your back, shoulders, calves, etc. When too many negative emotions are stuffed away where you can't see them, or feel them, they can cause the body to come out of balance. Chinese medicine agrees that emotions can create stagnation in the energy of the body, leading to issues with the spleen, heart, kidneys, liver, bladder, gallbladder, etc. They usually categorize the emotions into seven distinct areas: grief, sorrow, worry, fear, joy, anger and fright. Happiness is better even than plastic surgery, and certainly better than chemotherapy or pharmaceuticals at keeping you profoundly alive and healthy.

"I got really sick and Mum made me sleep with vomit still on me so I’d understand how it felt". It probably felt like sleeping with Michael Lohan. Maybe mom was sending you a bigger message. Maybe it was a cry for help from your drug addicted abused mother! And, finally one honest moment: "I’ve been court-ordered to do rehab six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time", and that "they just asked me the same old questions I’d answered before". Of course rehab is pointless.

Via The Local: Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt surprised listeners on Monday by spontaneously calling into a radio talk show to answer criticism about Sweden's nuclear anti-proliferation policy. Experts in Sweden are up in arms over Bildt's failure to back a recent nuclear weapons anti-proliferation proposal presented at a recent UN conference. Delegates at the conference, held in Geneva in April to discuss the UN-backed Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Treaty (NPT), proposed to rewrite the anti-proliferation text by saying nuclear weapons should be banned for humanitarian reasons. The proposal was well-received by most countries at the conference, with Sveriges Radio (SR) reporting that 78 of the almost 100 nations represented decided to throw their weight behind the amended text. The detractors, meanwhile, included several countries that possess nuclear weapons themselves, as well as Sweden, which doesn't have a nuclear arsenal. Swedish politicians and proliferation experts have reacted angrily to Bildt's decision not to back the proposal. Liberal Party (Folkpartiet) foreign affairs spokesman Christer Winbäck told SR that the foreign minister's move could hurt Sweden's credibility in attempts by the international community to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in the world. "I'm surprised, there have been previous statements that the consequences for using nuclear weapons are indeed devastating from a humanitarian point of view", he said. "I think there is a risk Sweden's voice could be toned down in the eyes of other countries if we refuse to sign papers confirming the dangers of nuclear weapons". In the days leading up to the conference, Sweden announced it was leaving the New Agenda Coalition (NAC), a coalition working for nuclear disarmament that Sweden founded in the 1990s along with Brazil, Egypt, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, and South Africa. The contrast lead Josefin Lind at Swedish Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Svenska läkare mot kärnvapen) to claim the government was not prioritizing the nuclear weapons question. "The fact that Sweden hasn't recently initiated any projects seeking to prohibit the use of nuclear weapons clearly indicates that the government is interested in other things", she told SR. Bildt, meanwhile, has hit back by saying his no vote was a non-issue, blown out of proportion by SR. The Foreign Minister even made the unusual move of phoning radio call-in programme "Ring P1", a radio equivalent to a newspaper's "letters to the editor" section, allowing concerned citizens of all stripes to call in and air their opinions about whatever is on their mind. After host Alexandra Pascalidou first took to Twitter to ask why Bildt refused to sign on to the agreement, the Foreign Minister tweeted back "I'm calling!" in an attempt to clarify the issue. "This is not a big issue, even if SR has made it into a big issue," he said on Monday. "We undertake quite a lot of serious work when it comes to nuclear disarmament, including treaties on nuclear tests and getting those treaties signed". "That specific proposal was a side issue that no serious countries were engaged in", Bildt added. "We should take our disarmament work seriously and try to get done what can be done". Bildt's move angered SR news chief Anne Lagercrantz, who accused the Swedish Foreign Minister of trying to avoid facing questions from journalists by instead taking to the airwaves on a call-in program. "This is one of several independent incidents on the same topic where he's avoided talking to the most informed reporters, and that's a worrisome development", she told the Expressen newspaper.
Via BusinessWeek: Ghana’s cedi, West Africa’s worst performing currency this year, will depreciate about 5 percent in 2013 to a record low on greater demand for imports, according to the country’s second-biggest bank. The cedi is projected to trade at 2 per dollar by the end of this year, John Awuah, chief financial officer at Ghana Commercial Bank Ltd., said by phone from Accra, the capital, on May 2. The cedi gained 0.1 percent to 1.9755 per dollar by 8:16 a.m. in Accra, retreating from May 3’s lowest level since at least June 1994 when Bloomberg began compiling the data. The cedi started the year at 1.9045.
Via Disclose.tv: Radical new research is attempting to characterize the properties of a fifth force that disrupts the predictions general relativity makes outside our own galaxy, on cosmic-length scales. University of Pennsylvania astrophysicist Bhuvnesh Jain, says the nature of gravity is the question of a lifetime. As scientists have been able to see farther and deeper into the universe, the laws of gravity have been revealed to be under the influence of an unexplained force. Two branches of theories have sprung up, each trying to fill its gaps in a different way. One branch - dark energy - suggests that the vacuum of space has an energy associated with it and that energy causes the observed acceleration. The other falls under the umbrella of "scalar-tensor" gravity theories, which effectively posits a fifth force (beyond gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces) that alters gravity on cosmologically large scales. "These two possibilities are both radical in their own way", Jain said. "One is saying that general relativity is correct, but we have this strange new form of energy. The other is saying we don't have a new form of energy, but gravity is not described by general relativity everywhere". Jain's research is focused on the latter possibility; he is attempting to characterize the properties of this fifth force that disrupts the predictions general relativity makes outside our own galaxy, on cosmic length scales. By innovatively analyzing a well-studied class of stars in nearby galaxies, Jain and his colleagues - Vinu Vikram, Anna Cabre and Joseph Clampitt at Penn and Jeremy Sakstein at the University of Cambridge - have produced new findings that narrow down the possibilities of what this force could be. Their findings, published on the Arxiv, are a vindication of Einstein's theory of gravity. Having survived a century of tests in the solar system, it has passed this new test in galaxies beyond our own as well. In 1998, astrophysicists made an observation that turned gravity on its ear: the universe's rate of expansion is speeding up. If gravity acts the same everywhere, stars and galaxies propelled outward by the Big Bang should continuously slow down, like objects thrown from an explosion do here on Earth. This observation used distant supernovae to show that the expansion of the universe was speeding up rather than slowing down. This indicated that something was missing from physicists' understanding of how the universe responds to gravity, which is described by Einstein's theory of general relativity. Jain's recent breakthrough came about when he and his colleagues realized they could use the troves of data on a special property of a common type of star as an exquisite test of gravity. Astrophysicists have been pursuing tests of gravity in the cosmos for many years, but conventional tests require data on millions of galaxies. Future observations are expected to provide such enormous datasets in the coming data. But Jain and his colleagues were able to bypass the conventional approach. "We've been able to perform a powerful test using just 25 nearby galaxies that is more than a hundred times more stringent than standard cosmological tests", Jain said. The nearby galaxies are important because they contain stars called cepheids that are bright enough to be seen individually. Moreover, cepheids have been used for decades as a kind of interstellar yardstick because their brightness oscillates in a precise and predictable way. "You can measure the brightness of a light bulb at some distance and know that, if you move it twice as far, it will be four times as faint. So you can tell just by the difference in its observed brightness how much further you moved it", Jain said. "But you need to know how intrinsically bright the bulb is first to determine its actual distance from us". Cepheids have a unique trait that allows astrophysicists to get this critical information: their luminosity oscillates over the course of days and weeks. The known relationship between a cepheid's rate of oscillation and intrinsic brightness serves as that baseline for calculating its distance from Earth, which in turn serves as a baseline for calculating the distance of other celestial objects. The accelerating universe observation, for example, relied upon cepheid data for scale. "Now that we understand a little bit more about what makes the cepheids pulsate - a balance of gravity and pressure - we can use them to learn about gravity, not just distance", Jain said. "If the fifth force enhances gravity even a little bit, it will make them pulsate faster". Because of their usefulness, there was already more than a decade of data on cepheids based on the Hubble Space Telescope and other large telescopes in Chile and Hawaii. Using that data, Jain and his colleagues compared nearly a thousand stars in 25 galaxies. This allowed them to make comparisons between galaxies that are theoretically "screened" or protected from the effects of the hypothetical fifth force and those that are not. Larger galaxies and ones that belong to galaxy clusters are screened, while smaller, isolated galaxies are not. "If we compare galaxies that don't permit this extra force, like our own galaxy, with others that do, then we should see a difference in the way those galaxies' cepheids behave", Jain said. "Because this new force would increase the speed of their oscillations and because we can use the rate of their oscillations to their measure distance from us, the measurement we get from cepheids in unscreened galaxies should be smaller than distance measurements made with different techniques". Jain and his colleagues ultimately did not see variation between their control sample of screened galaxies and their test sample of unscreened ones. Their results line up exactly with the prediction of Einstein's general relativity. This means that the potential range and strength of the fifth force is severely constrained. "We find consistency with Einstein's theory of gravity and we sharply narrow the space available to these other theories. Many of these theories are now ruled out by the data", Jain said. With better data on nearby galaxies in the coming years, Jain expects that an entire class of gravity theories could essentially be eliminated. But there remains the exciting possibility that better data may reveal small deviations from Einstein's gravity, one of the most famous scientific theories of all time. The image at the top of the page shows the most distant X-ray cluster of galaxies yet found by astronomers using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. Approximately 10 billion light years from Earth, the cluster 3C294 is 40 percent farther than the next most distant X-ray galaxy cluster previously known. The existence of such a distant galaxy cluster is important for understanding how the Universe evolved.

Via The Sun: Alicia Keys certainly isn’t bricking it on stage – despite wearing a top that looks like it’s made from LEGO. The singer donned the quirky outfit on stage as her Set The World On Fire Tour hit Detroit yesterday. The sheer blouse featured a purple patch across the bust made from what looked like a violet version of the plastic building blocks. She teamed the long-sleeved top with skin-tight tuxedo trousers, a thick belt and patent heels. She completed the look with a black Panama hat, pulled down low over her face to add a hint of mystery to the ensemble. The Empire State of Mind star recently completed the North American leg of her international tour. She’s set to hit the UK on May 19, starting in Liverpool and finishing in London 12 days later. Alicia tweeted about her excitement for the upcoming dates on Friday: "Liverpool > Newcastle > Belfast> Dublin > Manchester. Here I come!"
Via The Times Of Israel: Israel is working on joining an anti-Iran defense alliance with a number of moderate Arab states that would involve sharing Jerusalem’s newly developed anti-missile technologies, a British newspaper reported Sunday. The plan would see Israel join with Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates, to create a Middle Eastern "moderate crescent", according to the Sunday Times, which cited an unnamed Israeli official. Israel does not currently maintain formal ties with Riyadh or Abu Dhabi, and relations with Ankara have been strained since 2009.
Via Mail Online: The Winner Takes it All is about her failed marriage to Bjorn Ulvaeus. Despite this, Agnetha Fältskog admits its her favorite ABBA song. For most women, divorce is a heartbreaking memory they would rather forget. But Abba star Agnetha Fältskog has a constant reminder of that pain – thanks to one of the group’s biggest hits. Her ex-husband and former bandmate, Björn Ulvaeus, wrote The Winner Takes it All about the collapse of their nine-year marriage. But despite the deeply personal subject matter, the Swedish singer has revealed that the 1980 chart-topper is her favorite from Abba’s back catalogue, because of its honesty. In her first major interview in 30 years, the 63-year-old said: "Björn wrote it about us after the breakdown of our marriage. The fact he wrote it exactly when we divorced is touching really. I didn’t mind. It was fantastic to do that song because I could put in such feeling. I didn’t mind sharing it with the public. It didn’t feel wrong. There is so much in that song. It was a mixture of what I felt and what Björn felt but also what Benny and Frida [the other couple in Abba, who also divorced] went through".

And then Jason Collins showed up and said, "See? This is why".
Via WTOP: Actress Reese Witherspoon recalled that she panicked, said some "crazy things" and even claimed to be pregnant the night she was arrested in Atlanta on a disorderly conduct charge. During an interview Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America", Witherspoon repeatedly apologized for her behavior during the April 19 traffic stop. A police report states that Witherspoon asked a Georgia state trooper, "Do you know my name?" and added, "You're about to find out who I am". In her first sit-down interview about the arrest, the Oscar-winning actress told ABC's George Stephanopoulos that she had "one too many" glasses of wine, and panicked after she and her husband were pulled over. "I have no idea what I was saying that night", she said. "I literally panicked. I said all kinds of crazy things. I told them I was pregnant. I'm not pregnant". Witherspoon, 37, was arrested after the trooper said she wouldn't stay in the car while her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was being given a field sobriety test. A dash-cam video of the arrest posted by the TMZ website on Thursday shows a state trooper repeatedly telling Witherspoon to get back inside the car while he speaks to Toth. She initially tells him she is pregnant and needs to use the restroom.

Via The Local: A Swedish woman has died after playing what appeared to be a game of Russian roulette in western Sweden. The 23-year-old man who provided the weapon was charged for manslaughter on Thursday. The incident occurred in mid-March in an apartment in Flatås, Gothenburg, where emergency service workers found the 48-year-old woman seriously injured. The 23-year-old man is believed to have brought out a gun during an evening of drinking, loaded it with one live round, put it against his head and pulled the trigger. "He did it to himself. Then he put the weapon on the table", explained the man's lawyer Karl Sjölander. The woman then put the gun to her head, pulled the trigger, and shot herself in the head. She died of her injuries later in hospital. During police interrogations, the man claimed that he had gone to the bathroom when he heard a click, and then a shot, according to the Metro newspaper. On Thursday, the man was charged on the suspicion of manslaughter and aggravated weapon crimes. He denies the manslaughter charge but confessed to the weapon crimes and to narcotic crimes after police found cannabis in his home. The man has been detained until the trial and is reportedly devastated by the turn of events, his lawyer said. The lawyer added, however, that there was evidence to suggest the woman was already suicidal.

Via France 24: Pierre Borghi, who was kidnapped in Afghanistan in November last year and held captive for 131 days, escaped after losing 12 kilograms, allowing him to slip out of his chains and through a narrow window to freedom. A Frenchman held hostage for more than four months in Afghanistan by suspected members of the Taliban has told how his malnourished state eventually allowed him to make an unlikely escape. Pierre Borghi, a 29-year-old aid worker and photographer, was bundled into a car by four men as he walked through an area of Kabul popular with expats on the night of November 27. In an interview with French newspaper Le Figaro published on Thursday, Borghi, from Grenoble in southeast France, described how he was taken first to a house, where he enjoyed relative comfort and even established a cordial relationship with his guards, with whom he practised his Dari – the local language – and played card games. However, after several days in the house, he was blindfolded and taken to a nearby barn, where his kidnappers - who Borghi believes to have been members of the Taliban - forced him into a hole dug out of the earth and closed with a wooden trap door. This small hole would become Borghi’s home for the next three months. The Frenchman was only allowed out to film occasional ransom videos with his kidnappers - not otherwise permitted to leave even to wash or go to the toilet, his ankles and wrists kept in chains. Borghi survived on meager rations of a plate of rice and a piece of bread a day, losing 12kg of weight, and his physical condition grew worse as the winter arrived. "The winter was long and cold, and I was hungry", said Borghi. "At the end, I was in really bad shape". But Borghi’s malnourished state would turn out to work to his advantage, eventually allowing to him to make a break for freedom. With his body weight reduced, Borghi found he was able to slip out of his now ill-fitting chains. On the night of April 7, prompted by warnings from his kidnappers that negotiations for his release had stalled and that he was soon to be executed, Borghi made his way out of the hole and left the barn by squeezing through a narrow window. "The Taliban’s Slim-Fast diet was my savior", he said in his interview with Le Figaro. "Without it, I would not have been able to fit through the window". Despite the weakened state of his legs, which had been rendered immobile for several months, Borghi said he walked for "eight or nine hours" through the night, eventually arriving at an Afghan police base in the town of Maidan Shar, around 40 kilometers west of Kabul. From there he was taken to the Afghan capital and eventually returned home to France on April 14, having spent a total of 131 days in captivity. In an unlikely coincidence, Borghi found freedom on the same day as another French hostage being held in Afghanistan. Charles Ballard, working in Kabul as the finance director for French charity ACTED, was kidnapped in broad daylight while being driven to work on January 27. He was held hostage in a toilet for 71 days before being released, though he has declined to discuss details of how he came to be set free or who his captors may have been. Speaking to the AFP news agency following his release, Ballard said he never knew Borghi, but that the two have since spoken on Facebook.

I wasn’t going to watch the tape because I prefer my porn stars who handled their teen pregnancies the way their exploitative boyfriends and stepdads taught them would be best for their onscreen vaginas. However, like most chicks, I dig James Deen’s work. He’s cute and has a big shlong. If he wasn’t completely soiled in body and soul, I’d take him home to meet my parents. Plus, the title of the sex tape intrigued me. Backdoor means butt sex. I like my porn filthy, if Farrah doesn’t let James stick it in her bum I don’t want to watch. They better not just be luring us in with this "Backdoor Teen Mom" title only for Farrah to only let him sink the pink doggy style for five minutes while grunting and grimacing like a gorilla in labor. James Deen knows how to work the booty hole, and this chick reportedly got almost $1 million for the tape. If there’s no butt sex I’m suing Vivid for false advertising. And then crying.

Just yesterday, Amanda stripped down to her bra with two revealing Twitpics, but all roads were inevitably leading to this: more revealing Twitpics. It’s like her selfies are gremlins. They started out cute and harmless, but then she got them wet, fed them after midnight, and this is the monstrous result: breasts, gnashing their teeth at bright lights. "Rawr!" reads the caption, her hand over her left breast as she scrunches her face at the camera. "Long hair don’t care", she writes in a second photo, her blond locks totally NOT CARING as they lay across her right boob. Amanda’s been spending a lot of time in her bathroom these days—a green-tinged lit cube that looks straight out of a Saw movie—maybe she’s just trapped in there and crying for help? That’s what former Hollywood publicist Jonathan Jaxson appeared to think. He called the cops on her. And everyone knew exactly when they arrived because Jenny McCarthy let everyone know exactly when on her Twitter account, writing: "Police are at @AmandaBynes house. I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help". No details regarding the circumstances of that outcome.

Via abc News: Residents of Columbia, S.C., were greeted this week with a new billboard advertising a dating website for married people, which featured an image of former South Carolina governor and admitted philanderer Mark Sanford. The ad, spread across two stacked billboards, reads, "Next time use… AshleyMadison.com to find your 'running mate,'" made its debut Tuesday morning. Emblazoned in the ad is an image of Sanford, who is attempting to revive his political career with a bid for South Carolina's vacant 1st Congressional District seat. A special election is set for May 7. Ashley Madison CEO Noel Biderman told ABCNews.com that the controversial ad, created by him and his internal team, is meant as social commentary. He sees his campaign as a way to show that those who cheat on their spouses should not be made into pariahs. "We are trying to get people to distinguish between capability, and what goes on in bedroom", Biderman said. "There are few voices speaking on behalf of those who are unfaithful. Once we found out Sanford was back in business, that's the story we want to attach ourselves to. We believe careers shouldn't be lost because you choose not to sustain monogamy".
