Half Of British Women Don’t Know This Basic Fact About Their Own Bodies

New research has found that half of people in the UK don’t know where the vagina is. Perhaps worse, this includes the worrying information that only 45 percent of people who have their very own vagina are able to locate the vagina. Research from YouGov provides some quite alarming statistics about how well Brits know their own bodies. A team of researchers asked respondents to label female genitalia. Overall, 52 percent of people couldn’t locate the vagina. Of course, women were slightly better at locating it than men, with 45 percent of women unable to find it compared to 59 percent of men. Contrary to “men can’t find the clitoris” jokes, this was actually the part of women’s genitals that men were most able to …

The King Of The Surf Guitar Has Died

Dale, whose work included the 1962 hit “Misirlou” that was featured in the film “Pulp Fiction,” died on Saturday night. The popularity of surf music faded in the United States with the advent of rock’s “British Invasion” but Dale would have a career revival that started in the 1990s. He often said he kept performing because he wanted to “die onstage with an explosion of body parts.” But Dale also told interviewers he was on the road because he needed to earn $3,000 a month to pay medical expenses not covered by insurance after bouts with cancer, diabetes and back problems. He said he also liked to inspire people who might be having a tough time. Dale said his fans …

No long Brexit delay without election of British MEPs, says leaked paper

Britain forfeits any extension longer than three months if it does not contest EU elections Brussels will have to terminate the UKs extended membership of the European Union on 1 July if elections for British MEPs have not been held, a leaked legal document reveals. A three-month delay to Brexit beyond 29 March will not carry any conditions, but anything longer than that requires Britain to have taken part in European parliamentary elections, ambassadors have been told. EU law does not stand in the way of multiple extensions to the UKs membership if requested, the document says. But if elections had not been held in May, and the UK subsequently sought to stay on as a member state to avoid …

Microquakes Detected On Mars For The First Time

NASA’s InSight lander touched down on Mars last November and is equipped with a fully functioning geophysical observatory. The instrument, known as SEIS, began its science mission on December 19 and researchers have now announced that it has detected faint tremors known as microseisms. This is the first time we have observed this phenomenon on another planet. The findings were presented at the 50th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Texas. SEIS team leader Philippe Lognonné provided an update on the instrument’s placement and first science data, noting how it compares to data from the Viking lander, which arrived on Mars in the 1970s. Viking’s seismometer was on the lander and was affected by the Martian wind. SEIS was placed on the ground away from …

Kellyanne Conway’s husband is trying to tell the public Trump is mentally ill. She doesn’t agree

Washington (CNN)Her husband believes President Donald Trump’s mental condition is deteriorating. Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s top White House counselor, disagrees. This weekend, as Trump was lobbing his own Twitter invective in all directions, George Conway responded with screengrabs showing the medical definitions of narcissistic personality disorder and antisocial personality disorder from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. “*All* Americans should be thinking seriously *now* about Trump’s mental condition and psychological state, including and especially the media, Congress—and the Vice President and Cabinet,” he wrote. On Sunday, he stated simply: “His condition is getting worse.” Perhaps unsurprisingly, that sentiment was not repeated by the half of the Conway couple that works inside the White House. “I have four kids and …

Breastfeeding just got a whole lot more accessible for non-lactating parents.

Breastfeeding has astronomical benefits for infants, but it can be extremely difficult in the early stages. Nursing an infant can be mentally and emotionally taxing for nursing parents, a factor that discourages many. Even though breast milk is full of health benefits, it’s not always fun or possible. And while The World Health Organization advises parents to aim to breastfeed their children for a minimum of six months, there are many social, and economic factors that make that a challenge. For lactating parents, it’s often one more thing to add to a list of overwhelming daily responsibilities. I’ve been breastfeeding off and on for the last three years of my life (and counting). While I’m immensely grateful for a life …

One for the Democratic candidate and one for the Republican candidate?” Graham asked on the Senate floor, according to However, Senate Minority Leader He added: “I have absolutely no idea why a member of this body would object to this basic level of transparency, whatever their concern on other issues.” here was no good reason that the special …

How Anna Cobbs Endo Diagnosis Resulted In A Hysterectomy At 30-Years-Old

For Anna Cobbs — known to her followers as Fleurdille — an Endometriosis diagnosis wasn’t hard to come by. After she had chronic pain in her lower abdominal area to the point that she’d find herself immobilized by the end of the day, a visit to her OB confirmed that she had Endo, and it was quickly determined that she was a candidate for laparoscopic surgery. That was the fall of 2008. By the time she went in for her second surgery in 2012, her doctor told her that given the severity of the progression of her Endo, she might not be able to have kids. For six months, she didn’t get her period, and ended up getting progesterone shots …

Study Finds Evidence For A New Human Sense

Some humans may have an unconscious ability to sense Earth’s magnetic field, according to a provocative new study published today in the journal eNeuro. Years of exciting but often inconclusive experiments have led such research to fade in popularity. Now, a veteran in the field is hoping to revive interest with some of the strongest evidence yet that humans may have a magnetic sense buried deep within the brain.  It is well known many creatures, from frogs to lobsters, can sense Earth’s magnetic field, while others also rely on it for navigation (think: butterflies and sea turtles).  Caltech geoscientist Joseph Kirschvink and neuroscientist Shin Shimojo decided to revisit the issue, this time with a rather sophisticated study design. For the experiment, 34 …

Love, In Five Paragraphs

I believe you are my person. I love you, even though you don’t love me. I love you, even though there’s nothing in it for me anymore. There’s just loving you, but that’s enough for me. I find you to be one of the most exquisite humans I’ve ever met, and knowing you is all it takes to love you. I don’t need anything in return. Getting to be acquainted with your intelligence, depth, understanding, endurance, humor, wisdom, (I could go on), is what love is, and it’s why I choose to love you so intently. Thank you for loving me when I didn’t love myself. I pushed away because I believed that I wasn’t worthy of love. I came …

MPs back Brexit delay as votes lay bare cabinet divisions

MPs vote overwhelmingly to request extension to article 50 but eight ministers vote against motion Brexit is set to be delayed by at least three months, after parliament opted overwhelmingly to request an extension to article 50 on another day of divisive votes that exposed the split in Theresa Mays fractured cabinet. The prime minister is now expected to bring her twice-defeated Brexit deal back to parliament on Tuesday, after she narrowly retained control of the next steps of the process. The votes, the last in a series of vital parliamentary decisions on Brexit over several days, mean that Britains departure from the EU should not now take place before 30 June and gave the prime minister a window to …
