When a mother kisses son is it sex Former Bihar CM defends

first_imgNew Delhi: Three days after Azam Khan landed himself in a controversy for making objectionable remarks against BJP leader Rama Devi in Lok Sabha, Hindustani Awam Morcha leader Jitan Ram Manjhi defended the Samajwadi Party MP, ANI reported.”When a brother and sister meet, they kiss.

The Shape of Water Review GodLike Filmmaking Venice 2017

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisement Guillermo del Toro’s newest film, The Shape of Water, has a mute protagonist, a Cold War backdrop, and an aquatic creature that has spots on his skin that glows like a map of the universe. It’s also a love story. It’s perhaps his most ambitious film because combining those elements plus a narrative weave of non-verbal communication—or the faultiness of relying on words—is extremely difficult even before I tell you that the love story is between a woman and a creature. As such, it’s an immense achievement because The Shape of Water not only entertains as a sumptuous fairytale, but it reinforces a faith in humanity set in a time where tolerance of other races, nationalities, and non-“family values” love was volatile. Much like it feels like that time period of intolerance is percolating back to the surface now. This is del Toro’s Beauty and the Beast with the delicate time period touches and social awareness of Far from Heaven.Set in 1950’s Baltimore, The Shape of Water opens in a flooded apartment that rests above a movie theater. There are two apartments above the theater, one belonging to Elisa (Sally Hawkins), a mute woman who works as a janitor at a high-clearance research facility, the other belongs to her friend Giles (Richard Jenkins), a homosexual editorial painter who’s lost his standing at an advertising firm. The theater below is decorated almost like a cathedral, as old theaters were. Eventually this film reveals a creature and it’d be easy for del Toro to show 1950’s creature features in the theater but instead the glimpses we get into the theater show biblical epics.

AAP to burn BJPs 2014 manifesto on March 13

first_imgNEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is planning to burn the 2014 manifesto of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on March 13 for failing to honour the promises mentioned in it. BJP’s 2014 manifesto had the promise of granting a full statehood to Delhi. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal alleged that both the BJP and the Congress had promised of statehood for Delhi but never acted on it.Arvind Kejriwal claimed that if Delhi is granted full statehood, the government can create lakhs of government jobs. “We are saying to the people of Delhi that you have tested the Congress and BJP. Give us seven MPs this time and we will get full statehood for Delhi,” Kejriwal said in February. In February, CM Kejriwal also planned to go on an indefinite hunger strike to put pressure on the Centre to grant full statehood to Delhi. However, he postponed the strike in the wake of of the tensions between India and Pakistan over the airstrike conducted by the IAF.

Modi hai to Mumkin Hai BJP slogan for 2019 election Jaitley

first_imgNew Delhi: Seeking to encash Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s image of a doer, BJP has chosen the slogan of ‘Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai’ ‘Modi makes it possible’ for the upcoming general elections, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said Thursday. Modi, he added, has demonstrated during the last five years indefatigability by literally working round-the-clock, Jaitley said in the ‘Agenda 2019 Part-4’ blogpost. He further said Modi as a quick learner has demonstrated his ability to take quick decisions on complicated matters with clarity and determination. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! “His image as a doer is now recognised by most Indians. Many India observers across the world have marvelled with India’s pace of taking decisions and implementing them. The BJP, therefore, has chosen an effective slogan for the forthcoming elections ‘Modi Hai to Mumkin Hai’ ‘Modi makes it possible’,” said Jaitley, who is also in-charge of the publicity division of BJP for 2019 general elections. Recalling some landmark achievements of the government, he said for the first time for five years in a row, India has remained the fastest growing major economy in the world and also a ‘sweet spot’ in the global economy. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed “It is both the motivation and the leadership which made the vital difference. It is precisely for this reason that India will witness an election where people will get an opportunity to endorse Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, decisiveness, integrity and performance. Indeed he makes it possible,” the finance minister said. Among other things, Jaitley also said during Modi’s premiership, India demonstrated through surgical strike of 2016 and air-strike of 2019 against Pakistan that it was willing to adopt unconventional methods of attacking terror at the point of its origin. The other achievements of the government, he said, were bringing down inflation from 10.4 per cent during the UPA regime to 2.5 per cent presently, running an honest government and providing 10 per cent reservation in public employment and educational institutions for economically weaker sections in unreserved category. The government, he said, has also provided income support to poor farmers and pension scheme for the unorganised labour in the country. Other achievements of the government were the smoothest implementation of GST, free medical treatment to the poor under Ayushman Bharat scheme and 100 per cent electrification of all households, he said. “The above is only an illustrative list of the kinds of strides India is making. Has any government done more? It was the same governmental machinery, the same political system, the same implementation instruments that the government had at its disposal. It is both the motivation and the leadership which made the vital difference,” Jaitley said.last_img read more

ExSC judge Justice PC Ghose to be Indias first Lokpal

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Supreme Court judge Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose was on Sunday recommended to be the first Lokpal or anti-corruption ombudsman of India. His name was finalised and recommended by the Selection Committee comprising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan and eminent jurist Mukul Rohatgi.

He had assumed charge as Supreme Court judge on March 8, 2013. His was among the top 10 names shortlisted by the Lokpal Search Committee. In July 2015, a Supreme Court bench of Justice Ghose issued notice to late former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J.

Born in Kolkata, Justice Ghose is son of Late Justice Sambhu Chandra Ghose, former Chief Justice of Calcutta High Court. Graduating in Commerce from St.Xavier’s College, Calcutta, Justice Ghose completed graduation in law (LL.B.) from University of Calcutta and obtained Attorney-at-Law at Calcutta High Court, and enrolled himself as an advocate on November 30, 1976 with Bar Council of West Bengal. He practised in civil, commercial, arbitration, constitutional and company matters both in the original side and appellate side at Calcutta High Court.

Jutice Ghose’s appointment has come nearly five years after the Lokpal Act was notified on January 16, 2014. The law provides for a Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayuktas in states to probe cases of corruption against public servants. The Supreme Court, hearing a PIL filed by NGO Common Cause, represented by advocate Prashant Bhushan, has been pushing the government to make the appointments. In its hearing on January 4, the apex court had asked the government to appoint a Lokpal at the earliest, saying “much time has elapsed, something needs to be done”. On January 17, the Supreme Court had pulled up the Centre for repeatedly delaying the appointment of the Lokpal. On March 7, a bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi had asked the Modi government to inform the court within a fortnight by when it would finalise the names. Delayed for some reason or the other, the search committee was constituted on September 27, 2018, after the Supreme Court’s intervention and former Supreme Court judge Ranjana Prakash Desai was nominated to head it.last_img read more

Kenya UN expert urges durable solutions for internally displaced persons

27 September 2011An independent United Nations human rights expert has urged the Kenyan Government to adopt a comprehensive strategy to tackle key challenges faced by internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the country. “There is an urgent humanitarian need to address the dire living conditions and human rights of IDPs in Kenya, including persons displaced by the 2007-2008 post-election violence, and those displaced by natural disasters and environmental conservation projects,” the Special Rapporteur on the human rights of IDPs, Chaloka Beyani, said at the end of a nine-day visit.Kenya has experienced several waves of internal displacement in recent years, including an estimated 600,000 people that were uprooted by the violence that followed the disputed 2007 presidential elections.Mr. Beyani said that any strategy must include the adoption of a policy and legislative framework, consistent with international and regional standards.It must also include capacity building, including in technical aspects such as registration, profiling, and assistance and protection programme management; prevention and mitigation of internal displacement; and durable solutions. He commended the Government’s commitment to the issue and the steps taken so far, including the development of a draft IDP policy and the return and resettlement of some people uprooted by the post-election violence.At the same time, he called on the Kenyan authorities to adopt the draft IDP policy and to ratify the African Union Convention on Protection and Assistance to IDPs, also known as the Kampala Convention, among other measures. “In the course of this visit, I also found that the lack of accurate and efficient systems of registration and disaggregated data collection were key concerns directly affecting the assistance, protection and durable solutions for IDPs,” Mr. Beyani stated. He urged the authorities to join forces with the international community and civil society to collect more reliable information, paying particular attention to vulnerable groups, including children who may have resorted to living on the streets due to internal displacement. The expert, who reports in an independent and unpaid capacity to the UN Human Rights Council, also stressed that the choice of durable solutions by IDPs should be “informed, voluntary and safe, and include the necessary assistance to rebuild their lives.” His full report on the Kenya visit will be presented to the Geneva-based Council next March. read more

Sudan UN agency funds farming improvement projects

27 February 2012A new initiative aimed at improving food security in Sudan will provide the country’s smallholder farmers with improved seeds and soil to fight the threat of drought, the United Nations fund tasked with promoting rural development announced today. A new initiative aimed at improving food security in Sudan will provide the country’s smallholder farmers with improved seeds and soil to fight the threat of drought, the United Nations fund tasked with promoting rural development has announced. The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) will provide a $10.7 million dollar grant to help Sudanese farmers increase productivity through the use of certified seeds, improved soil and water conservation techniques, with young people and women given priority. The agricultural sector is Sudan’s most important as it employs 80 per cent of the active population and contributes 39 per cent to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). The country’s land area, however, is predominantly arid and as a result most of the country’s farms remain reliant on rainfall for water, leaving them particularly susceptible to the ravages of drought. According to the new plan, IFAD will improve food security, incomes and resilience to environmental shocks among the smallholder producers in areas reliant on rainfall. In addition, the project will promote the public-private partnership for the supply and production of seeds. More than 108,000 smallholder farmers and 1,280 seed growers in the Sudanese states of Northern Kordofan and Southern Kordofan are expected to benefit from the plan. The loan agreement was signed on Friday by Kanayo F. Nwanze, the IFAD President, and Gafar Ahmed Abdalla Omer, State Minister for Agriculture and Irrigation of Sudan. read more

Goodman student chosen as ambassador for exchange programs

For Goodman School of Business student Berina Colakovic, there is no better experience a university student can have than to go on an international exchange.Colakovic is one of about 30 students across North America who have recently been hired by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) to help promote studying and researching in Germany to their peers through the Young Ambassador program. Colakovic is the first Brock University student to be hired through this program. Going on exchange is the best thing I’ve done at university. It opened my eyes to so many new experiences and it really changed me.The opportunity to volunteer for DAAD arose because of Colakovic’s own exchange experience. She spent last fall on exchange in Germany at the University of Mannheim where she took business courses and immersed herself into German culture. She found the experience to be powerful and impactful, and now wants to share what she learned with other students. “Going on exchange is the best thing I’ve done at university. It opened my eyes to so many new experiences and it really changed me,” says Colakovic. “I’m excited to share my experience with students and help them see the benefits of these programs.” As she finishes up her studies this year, Colakovic looks ahead with the goal of returning to Germany for a master’s program.In addition to her young ambassador duties, which will include a full training workshop over four days in New York City to refine public speaking skills and learn more about German exchange programs, Colakovic will work on a volunteer basis with Goodman’s international exchanges and partnerships office to assist with promoting all international exchange opportunities to Goodman students.Brock’s Goodman School of Business currently partners with over 40 business schools around the world, including five partners in Germany. Goodman students going on exchange programs take courses in English that count towards their degrees. read more

Dont hate the players hate the game

Patience is a virtue. And many professional sports franchises seek out virtuous athletes who don’t stray on the edge of the law. In the NFL, character plays a major role. Just ask Ben Roethlisberger, Michael Vick or Adam “Pacman” Jones. More and more, teams avoid high-risk athletes who pose off-the-field threats. The NCAA suspended Oklahoma State’s Dez Bryant, widely projected as the NFL Draft’s top receiver last April, for the final 10 games of the season after he met with former NFL cornerback Deion Sanders. The interaction was determined to be a violation of NCAA rules. Once pinpointed as a Top 5 pick, Bryant tumbled to the Dallas Cowboys, who selected him 24th overall. Coincidence? Hardly. Bryant’s situation is just one example of the transgressions running rampant across college athletics. Georgia’s A.J. Green, tabbed by many as the best receiver prospect in college football, is serving a four-game suspension for selling his own jersey on eBay. Reports indicate he made about $1,000 on the game-worn uniform. So only the university can profit from Green’s gear? He can’t see a penny of it? That’s the straight-edged policy the NCAA institutes to prevent widespread financial madness. Aside from the athlete’s relatives, how many people would pay for a game-worn field hockey jersey? If all student-athletes are to be treated as equals, then star football players can’t be earning a profit that’s unattainable for a rower or volleyball player. Green likely chose eBay as his selling medium because of the high demand for his product. But since the revenue that football brings schools dwarfs the money that other sports make, shouldn’t the athletes see a cut? What if the family of a star athlete can’t provide sufficient monetary support? I sat down with Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith and discussed this very issue. Many people identify athletic directors and NCAA bigwigs as the villains, poaching every nickel and dime spent to see the kids play. But the same kids that are the reason 100,000 people fill stadiums across the nation are the same ones that will earn millions on the next level. Smith was actually in favor of allowing the athletes to earn a portion of the sales of their merchandise. His caveat, however, was that the athlete had to graduate to ever get his or her hands on the account. “Should we be able to allow kids to sell jerseys or their likenesses and make money? I believe that,” Smith said. “But I believe that money should be saved in an account for them for when they graduate. If you open that door and you allow every kid to monetize their persona, holy smokes.” “So I’m good with it if we said, whatever a kid’s jersey value is you sell it, but you take a portion of that money because you have expenditures, you take the profit from it, and put it in an account. I wouldn’t give it to them unless they graduate.” The concept makes sense. The star athletes who don’t need all four years of college game experience — and who don’t want to risk injury — jump to the next level and the money in their account is returned to the school. It sounds like a feasible plan, though one would be naïve to expect agents and boosters to keep from finding ways to trump the system. And that’s why the NCAA enforces such strict policies. Every other scenario includes far too many loopholes, exceptions and gray areas. Smith’s idea would work, but only in a perfect world. And what we currently have is an imperfect setup in an imperfect system. So, the best college athletes can do for now is just have patience and wait for that first, legal paycheck, whether from the NFL or a job post-graduation. read more

Chinas Xi says should shelve differences in meeting with Theresa May

first_imgheresa May shakes Chinese President Xi Jinping hand Credit:Matt Cardy/PA China and Britain need to seek common ground while shelving differences and respect each other’s core interests, Chinese President Xi Jinping told British Prime Minister Theresa May, following a recent dispute over Hong Kong.China said last month a joint declaration with Britain over Hong Kong, which laid the blueprint over how the city would be ruled after its return to China in 1997, was a historical document that no longer had any practical significance.In response, Britain said the declaration remained in force and was a legally valid treaty to which it was committed to upholding.China says no foreign country has a right to get involved with Hong Kong as it is an internal affair for China, and has also reacted angrily to six-monthly reports the British government gives to Parliament about Hong Kong.Meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in the German city of Hamburg on Friday, Xi told May that bilateral relations should be cultivated on the basis of “consolidating strategic mutual trust”, China’s foreign ministry said on Saturday.”Both sides should uphold the principle of mutual respect and equality, and respect each other’s core interests and major concerns,” the ministry cited Xi as saying. heresa May shakes Chinese President Xi Jinping hand  “Both sides must seek common ground while shelving differences.” There was no direct mention of Hong Kong in the statement.On Wednesday, British Minister of State for Asia and the Pacific Mark Field met Chinese ambassador Liu Xiaoming in London and made clear Britain’s commitment to the joint declaration, Britain’s Foreign Office said.”This declaration, registered with the UN, remains in force until July 2047. As a consequence, the minister did not accept the Chinese government’s position that this was purely an historical document,” the Foreign Office said.While China and Britain have a history of disputes over human rights and the future of Hong Kong, ties have warmed in the past few years and economic links have grown in what both countries call a “golden age”, though Britain upset China last year by putting on hold a nuclear project it later approved.China is high on Britain’s list of countries with which to sign a free trade deal once Britain leaves the European Union.Xi told May that the two countries should deepen cooperation in the finance and nuclear energy sectors, China’s foreign ministry added, without giving details.last_img read more

Why Most Magazine Industry Metrics are Bogus

first_imgThefirst quarter PIB ad page numbers painted a pretty bleak picture for theindustry.  The revenue numbers told anequally sorry story for all but a few publications.  Among the top revenue gainers were HallmarkMagazine (up 53.5 percent in revenue) and Disney’s Wondertime (8 percent).What’s that you say? Hallmarkand Wondertime have both been shutdown?  How could that be? It’s because the PIB revenue numbers bearonly a fleeting resemblance to reality.More broadly, many magazine business metrics reported in thetrade press and analyzed by media planners provide misleading views of what’sreally going on in the industry. Here are three of the most prominent examples, and three modestproposals on how to fix them: The Problem: PIB PIB’s advertising revenue numbers are notoriously inflatedbecause they rely on rate cards.  Formany publishers, the real revenue per ad page can be 50 percent of the ratecard after taking into account advertiser discounts, bonus pages, advertorialsand remnant rates.  The advertising pagecounts are also subject to some distortions but to a far lesser degree.The Fix: Keep thead page counts.  Kill the ad revenuereport.The Problem: ABCABC’s twice-yearly FAS-FAX circulation report also gets alot of media attention when it comes out. Trade stories usually center on two themes: which magazines grew theirtotal circulation and which magazines missed rate base. Media planners alsolook at these two metrics to determine a magazine’s “circulation vitality.”Unfortunately, total circulation and making rate base aretwo of the least informative pieces of information on a magazine’s pinksheet.  In both cases, publishers candirectly control their numbers by paying for verified and/or public placesubscriptions. From a pure economic perspective, the excessive focus on ratebase can also lead to bad business decisions as publishers pay to acquire andprint subscription copies that have no advertising benefit.The Fix: Mediaplanners-along with ABC and the trade press-should be emphasizing the trends inpaid (instead of total) subscriptions and single copy sales, the two metricsthat relate directly to the economic health of a title.The Problem: Mr. MagazineI give a lot of credit to Samir “Mr. Magazine” Husni.  Anyone who bets their career so solidly onthe magazine industry is a comrade of mine and anyone who reads this site.  That being said, his “magazines launched thismonth” numbers really tell us very little about the health of the industry. In February 2009 for example, Husni’s site claims that,incredibly, 80 new magazinetitles were launched, compared to approximately 50 in February 2008 and 35in February 2007.  Husni himself promotesthe February numbers in his blog as proofthat “print is not dead”—and he is something of a fixture in the magazinetrade press (includingthis one).Who could these brave magazine-launching souls possiblybe? The Mr. Magazine site helpfully providesthe cover of each launched title so we can do some additional analysis.  Roughly 90 percent of the titles presented as”new launches” are actually newsstand special issues from medium and largepublishers.  Having worked at anenthusiast publisher, I can say that more newsstand one-shots are a signal thatpublishers are trying to stretch their investments in editorial (by repurposingold content) and newsstand distribution (by “stacking” another release onto anexisting bipad). The Fix:  Mr. Magazine (or his students) should countnew bipads instead of titles.  A newbipad shows that a publisher is investing in a new magazine with its owndistribution profile.  A new magazine onan old bipad (e.g. “Taste of Home Presents: Casserole Slow Cooker & Soups”)is not a “new title.”Are there other metrics that you find irksome ormisleading?  Comment below and I willincorporate them into a future blog post.last_img read more

Karnataka woman chops off neighbours ear over drinking water dispute

first_img[Representational Image]ReutersIn a freak incident, a woman’s ears were chopped off by her neighbour over an argument regarding drinking water allowance from a common water tank in Karnataka. The incident took place at Bangarpet in Kolar district on May 9 when 40-year-old Indrani was attacked by five people, including her neighbour Yashodamma.The victim is a resident of Kadarigana Koppa village. She was returning home from her cattle shed when Yashodamma, Shashi, Basavarajappa, Santosh and Hosarayappa attacked her. The accused slashed her ears with a blade.According to reports, Indrani had gone to fetch water from the public cistern in the village on May 7 when Yashodamma was also acquiring water from the tank. The village rules permit every person to carry four pots of water for their use. Indrani accused Yashodamma of procuring more pots of water, claiming that she had already collected eight pots of water. This incident led to the squabble between the neighbours and Yashodamma threw away Indrani’s pots.An infuriated Yashodamma retaliated and attacked her when Indrani was returning from the cowshed on May 9. The victim was rescued by her husband Raghupati, who came after listening to her cries for help. It is alleged that the accused’s husband, Hosarayappa, also assaulted the victim.Indrani was taken to Bethamangala PHC where she was given preliminary medical aid. However, since the damage was severe, she was rushed to SNR Hospital in Kolar where the doctors conducted a minor surgery and sutured both her ears, reports TOI.The Bethamangala police have filed an FIR and arrested five people. According to reports, this is the first FIR filed at the police station since 1943.last_img read more

Did Jerry Falwells personal photos violate Christian sexual codes

first_img Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts By: Yonat Shimron YonatShimron Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — The news that Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. allegedly sought out President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen to help prevent the release of some embarrassing personal photos has rocked the mediasphere for mostly political reasons.Those have to do with whether Cohen’s intervention led Falwell to issue a crucial evangelical endorsement of Trump ahead of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.Falwell, who has denied Cohen’s account, is an ardent champion of the president. Just this week Falwell tweeted that Trump was owed an extension of his term as “reparations” for the time spent on the Mueller investigation.But while some evangelicals faulted Falwell for his endorsement of a president whose behavior has been at odds with many evangelical values, the allegations of racy personal photos call into question Falwell’s own behavior and whether they align with evangelical sexual mores.President Trump talks with Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr., right, during commencement ceremonies at the school in Lynchburg, Va., on May 13, 2017.

Many schools, including Liberty University, have strict codes regarding sexual misconduct, including the viewing and sharing of pornography and nude or indecent photos.While “sexting” or other forms of sharing erotic photos has become common in the broader culture evangelicals would mostly consider them sexual sins.“I would think that should a president wind up exposed with having engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior, that would reflect back on the character of the institution, and I would expect the trustees would take that more seriously,” said John Hawthorne, a sociologist of religion at Spring Arbor University, a Christian school in Spring Arbor, Mich.Many similar schools, such as Liberty University, have honor codes that spell out what they consider to be Christian standards for sexual conduct.Those codes include a broad category of sexual offenses that are considered crimes, including sexual harassment and sexual assault. But Christian schools often go a step further, prohibiting premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex and the viewing of erotic photos or pornography.Falwell has denied Cohen’s account, made in a phone call in March with actor Tom Arnold. According to a recording of the call, Cohen claimed he flew to Florida around 2015, and got the person with the Falwell photos to agree to destroy them.Neither Falwell nor Liberty University responded to a request for comment from RNS.Reuters first reported the story on Tuesday (May 7), quoting Cohen as saying, “I actually have one of the photos. It’s terrible.”Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, back center, leaves after a closed door Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, on Feb. 26, 2019. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)Later that day, Falwell’s lawyer told The Washington Post that the allegation was false.“While the Falwells have a long-standing friendship with Michael Cohen, they never engaged or paid Cohen to represent them in any legal or other professional capacity, and Cohen did not ever resolve any legal matter on their behalf,” Falwell’s lawyer told the Post.Falwell then agreed to an interview on the Todd Starnes Radio Show, where he denied the allegations.“This report is not accurate,” he told Starnes, a conservative talk-show host. “There are no compromising or embarrassing photos of me.”If there were, it might be a violation of the school’s honor code.Liberty University’s Christian School of Law, for instance, stipulates that ‘involvement with pornographic, erotic, obscene, indecent, or other similarly offensive materials, expressions, or conduct is inconsistent with the Personal Code of Honor and the Christian faith.”Wheaton College, a premier Christian school in Illinois, has a sexual behavior policy that requires students to refrain from “physical expressions of, written descriptions about, and/or visual images suggesting sexual intimacy.”Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, describes decency offenses as “actions, images, words or data which are indecent, abusive, profane, harassing or sexually offensive whether via telephone, e-mail, audio, film, video, printed materials, homepages, or online social networks.”In particular, Calvin’s rules single out public nudity and indecent exposure.Depending on the severity of the offense, disciplinary measures for offenders can range from counseling to probation to expulsion.Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr., right, answers a student’s question, along with his wife, Becki, during a town hall on the opioid crisis at a convocation at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., on Nov. 28, 2018. (AP Photo/Steve Helber)Christians often refer to the New Testament in defending Christian sexual ethics.They take seriously Jesus’ admonition in the Gospel of Matthew that “anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”They also cite a passage from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?”“I tell my students who are going to become teachers, if you’ve got something on your social media site and it’s not a flattering thing, take it off,” said John Fea, a professor of American history at Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. “It’s not going to be worth it to lose a job over it.”The larger problem, Fea said, is the viewing of pornography, which he described as “the big hidden secret,” at Christian colleges and universities.Some evangelical schools now have support groups for young men who are trying to hold each other accountable for viewing pornography, Hawthorne added.A new book by University of Oklahoma sociologist Samuel L. Perry found that U.S. evangelicals view pornography slightly less often than other Americans.But when do, evangelicals feel more guilt, shame and depression than other Americans, writes Perry in “Addicted to Lust: Pornography in the Lives of Conservative Protestants.”While no one has accused Falwell of viewing pornography or straying outside his marriage to Becki, his wife, his alleged use of photos may be a sign that the culture of nude selfies may have reached Christian institutions — as has the widespread viewing of pornography.“It’s a serious problem these colleges are trying to address,” Fea said. “They can’t do much to control it.”(This story has been updated.)

Amazon shows off Kindles GameCircle UI social gaming experience

first_imgAmazon’s announcement of the Kindle Fire HD showed the world that the online retail giant was more than ready to compete with Apple and Google. Amazon wants to be in the game in a very real way, and they have put together an incredibly competitive tablet at a price that will be difficult to match. The price of a tablet isn’t always the killer feature though, especially when it comes to competing with Apple. Amazon’s new GameCircle system is designed to engage users on a social level when playing games on the tablet, and they appear to have done a really great job setting it up.As our tablets get more and more powerful, playing games on them is going to become even more popular. In order to help game developers take advantage of this incresing trend, Amazon has released APIs that will enable developers to add social features to their already existing apps for free. Users will be able to see what their friends are playing with Facebook Connect, compare in-game achievements side by side, and participate in global leaderboards for these games. At launch, Amazon already had several popular games like Temple Run and Skylanders Cloud Patrol with these game features enabled, and expects to roll out many more in the near future.The individual profile view in GameCircle will show you all the achievements you have earned playing the games you already have on your device. If you select a game from that list, you’ll be shown immediately who else in your friends list is already playing the game, and how many games you have in common. When you tap on the other user, you are shown an aggressive head-to-head comparison of the games you have played and the scores and accomplishments earned within. From a social gaming perspective, this is the perfect UI for creating a competitive environment between friends. This, naturally, will encourage more gameplay between those users.Amazon has done a great job weaving the GameCircle into their existing UI and providing plenty of reasons for developers to want to include this in their games. While Apple’s game management system offers some similar features, Android doesn’t currently offer anything that enables this kind of social gaming.Combined with Amazon’s often game-happy free app of the day, it is not hard to see GameCircle usage increasing rapidly once the tablets are in the wild.Read more at the Amazon App Dev Bloglast_img read more

ANSOM Microscope Achieves Sub 10nm Resolution

first_imgThe idea behind near-field microscopy is to offer a technique by which extremely small structures (at the nanometer level) can be measured and manipulated. However, 20 nanometers has been the best resolution accomplished. Until now. “We were able to resolve molecules when they were only 15 nanometers apart,” Stephen Quake tells PhysOrg.com. Quake and his group at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena have created a fluorescence near-field microscope that can distinguish single molecules. The results are published in an article titled “Fluorescence Near-Field Microscopy of DNA at Sub-10 nm Resolution” in Physical Review Letters.“Conventional light microscopes use lenses, and so their imaging properties are limited by the properties of these lenses,” Quake explains. “The main limitation is the wavelength of light. But for the last 20 years, near-field microscopy has provided ways to look at objects without being limited by the wavelength of light. For the most part, that has meant two to four times better than the diffraction limit.”Along with Ziyang Ma, Jordan Gerton and Lawrence Wade, Quake designed and built a microscope that worked with fluorescence near-field microscopy (ANSOM — apertureless near-field scanning optical microscope). In their Letter, the authors describe how fluorescence fluctuations and the limited number of photons available before the molecule is destroyed has created problems in imaging fluorescent molecules. However, thanks to a new phase filtering method, Quake’s group demonstrates how this new kind of microscope can be useful for any number of applications, but especially for biomolecules like DNA.In fact, Quake and his collaborators used DNA to test their microscope. “One of the most stringent tests for a microscope is to put two items together and see how close you can get them and still tell them apart.” He points out that in near-field microscopy this test is not often done. “But we wanted rigorous evidence that the resolution is as high as we claim.” Quake feels that this new kind of microscope could be valuable if commercially produced. “If a commercial manufacturer picked these up and got them into labs, it could greatly advance the frontiers of both biology and nanoscience. They could be used as tools to learn more about the function of macromolecules.”According to the Letter, the microscope’s phase filtering method can also be applied to such things a nanoantennas and supersharp carbon nanotube probes. The resolution of both of these instruments could be improved with the group’s process. Additionally, the microscope could be altered to work on a level that approaches the resolution of an electron microscope.Quake predicts that there will be more to this new fluorescence near-field microscope. “So far, we only have results from molecules in air,” he says. “The next step is to make it work in water, and we have been modifying the instrument for that purpose.” The advantages to having such a microscope are obvious. Right now, with an electron microscope (which has sharper resolution), biomolecules cannot be observed directly in their natural conditions. But this new microscope, if properly adapted, could change that. “We could image live cells, for example. Look at things in motion. Observe proteins that are on the cell surface membranes. This microscope offers a powerful new tool for imaging single molecules and nanostructures.”By Miranda Marquit, Copyright 2006 PhysOrg.com. All rights reserved.
