Long time in the making. Great to see Germany went first in Europe to give people the option of a third gender in the birth certificate:

Kafka surely would have liked this story about Amazon closing a customer's account, wiping her Kindle and only offering an explanation that leads to more questions (via Joachim Dreykluft).

You absolutely must go and look at this. It is beautiful and hilarious at the same time (well, the German flag is mostly hilarious ;-)

Dear friends around the world, please take a few minutes of your precious time to read about this super important project (and possibly even find a few bucks to donate): In one of the poorest regions of the world, Bihar, India, 1 out of 2 kids suffer from parasitic worms. But a simple pill can cure it and it costs only 0.02 $ per child.

When the pill isn’t taken, the parasitic worms can result in:
- malnourishment and anemia
- impaired brain development and stunted growth
- abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea

When the pill is taken, everyone wins:
- increased school attendance by 15 days per year
- reduced worm transmission throughout the community
- 20% higher wages as adults due to better lifetime health and education
600 million school-age kids are at high risk of parasitic worms worldwide. Deworm the World has reached 40 million kids in 27 countries over the past 4 years, including 17 million in 2011 in Bihar, India.

I love the pictograms for these superimportant Olympic non-events like the ultimate "wrestling with your conscience"!

Over the last week, we’ve been agog at the seeming Herculean feats of the Olympic athletes competing in the London summer games. Now it’s time to celebrate our own pedestrian achievements--the everyda...

AVOID THE TOP 10 BIGGEST BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS

According to world health organization following are such habits that will damage your brain severely:

1. No Breakfast – People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level. This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overreacting – It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

3. Smoking – It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption – Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

5. Air Pollution – The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation – Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

7. Head covered while sleeping – Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness – Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts – Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely – Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.

Please pay caution and try to avoid such situations!! Share this !!

"Male journalists wrote 78% of all front-page articles and men accounted for 84% of those mentioned or quoted in lead pieces, according to analysis of nine national newspapers, Monday to Saturday, over the course of four weeks.
The only females to be regularly pictured in the period were the Duchess of Cambridge; her sister, Pippa Middleton, and the crime victim Madeleine McCann."

The Mail&Guardian's Heidi Swart spent months investigating life in the region around the #Lonmin mines prior to the disaster of last week. It is certainly worth the read.

So what about the much discussed liberal media bias? This infographic paints a slightly different picture in which media negativity towards Obama is 17% higher than towards Romney.

http://www.4thestate.net/liberal-media-bias/
Our data does not support the thesis of a liberal media bias as it relates to Election 2012 coverage. If anything, our analysis suggests a media bias towards both Mitt Romney and Republicans. There ar...
