Parents are snapping up clothing for their kids covered in inappropriate language – because they don’t understand what it says.
The clothing, shown here with sayings like, “$ex for money” and “too drunk to f***”, are being worn by children as young as eight in Asia because they can’t read the English.
here are also dresses saying ‘i am a whore’, sweaters reading ‘who the f*** is Jesus?’ and most disturbingly little girls’ pink T-shirts reading ‘jail bait.
Is this the kind of trade Cameron has been promoting in China?
Lord Sewel might know.
A picture message being sent to Android phones allows hackers to gain complete control of their device.
Phone users won’t even need to open the message for hackers to access your phone – as a flaw on some devices means they automatically download pictures and video sent via MMS messages.
There are 950 million Android users worldwide and all could be affected.
At least cow’s milk that is. For how many years did the milk industry get away with touting the milk mustache as the badge of good health, providing us with all the calcium and protein we’ll ever need right? Today, the most informed researchers, both professional and casual know better. “Got Milk?” Not if you’re a pursuer of a healthy diet. Today’s processed milk is far from healthy and is essentially a dead liquid, devoid of any real nutritional value.
Twenty or more years ago, the move away from milk for most people was rooted in concerns about lactose intolerance, but today it’s the fact that plant-based alternatives are far healthier.
In recent years consuming milk has been linked to cancer, diabetes, asthma, acne and even weak and fragile bones. The alternatives, meanwhile, can be low in calories and fats, and often have the added appeal of new and interesting flavors.
In many Western countries, milk consumption has been falling since the 1970s, and due to more people informing themselves on the dangers of dairy, consumption is well below recommended levels and that is good news for public health and bad news for the milk industry. In 2010, the official Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommended 2.5 cup equivalents (about 0.6 liters) of dairy products per day for children aged 4 to 8, and 3 cups for anyone over 8. Average consumption for adults in the US is at less than half the suggested intake.
Hmmmmm… A harsher dose of radiation then ??
A revolutionary machine that scans and kills cancer at the same time is to be tested on patients in the UK.
Experts say the MR-Linac machine to be installed at two centres in Surrey and Manchester could open up a new era in highly-personalised radiotherapy.
The machine combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning and tumour-busting radiation treatment in one hi-tech package.
Two of only seven of the machines in the world are being delivered to the UK, initially for use in clinical trials.
Each device is understood to cost more than a £3 million CyberKnife – a cutting-edge form of radiotherapy that hits hard-to-reach tumours with high-dose targeted beams.
One of them will be commissioned at the Royal Marsden Hospital’s site in Sutton, Surrey, early next year.
Professor Uwe Oelfke, from the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, said a major problem for radiotherapy was that patients’ internal anatomy changed “from day to day or even from second to second”.
Being able to view highly-detailed MRI images of a radiotherapy target site would allow far more accurate treatment with less damage to healthy tissue and fewer side effects.
“It’s extremely important for the success of radiation therapies that we can see what we want to treat at the time of the treatment, not diagnostic images which are basically reflecting the anatomical state a few days or weeks before the treatment,” said Prof Oelfke.
David Cameron is either the savviest political strategist in the land or the most dim-witted.
Speaking in Singapore, where he is on a trade and diplomacy tour, Cameron said:
“It is important the House of Lords in some way reflects the situation in the House of Commons.
Chief Constable Sara Thornton, head of the new National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), said that significant budget cuts and the changing nature of criminality meant that police had to prioritise.
She told the BBC: “Crime is changing in this country.
“We need to move from reacting to some of those traditional crimes to thinking about focusing on threat and harm and risk and really protecting the public.
Maybe they should simply stake out Westminster and the House of Lords?
US transportation security officials are investigating how a man was able to pass through a security checkpoint without a ticket at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and board a commercial airliner, airport officials said on Monday.
“Immediately following this incident, TSA made adjustments to the DFW screening area, has added more barriers, and is working to identify other long-term solutions that may require physical adjustments to the area,” he said.
Goedele Liekens said prudish parents should use the cartoon character and his business partner Wendy to talk about sex.
The former model, who advises the UN on sexual health, said: “Parents should broach the subject of sex as soon as their children can talk.”
Liekens won the Miss Belgium beauty pageant in the 1980s but is now a TV presenter and psychologist.
I wonder who interviewed her for the job?
