Dr. Natalia Kanem, UNFPA’s executive director, said: “Harmful practices against girls cause profound and lasting trauma, robbing them of their right to reach their full potential.” According to the State of World Population 2020 report, at least 19 harmful practices ranging from breast ironing to virginity testing affect millions of girls and are considered human rights violations.

Howell, 137 S.Ct. 1400 (2017). The surprising unanimous 8-0 decision overturned the Arizona Supreme Court’s decision in In re Marriage of Howell, 238 Ariz. 407 (2015), and held that the Uniformed Services Former Spouses’ Protection Act (USFSPA) preempts a state court’s order directing a veteran to indemnify a former spouse for a reduction in the former spouse’s portion of the veteran’s military retirement pay (MRP), when that reduction results from the veteran’s post-divorce waiver of retirement pay in order to receive compensation for a service connected disability.

Your Brain Has A "Delete" Button

The pajamas industry is growing, and retailers aren't sleeping on how to reinvent the bygone ensemble. What was once a symbol of buttoned-down '50s attire (think Ricky and Lucy in collared PJ sets, tucking into their separate beds) has slowly inched its way back into pop culture. Look no further than popular TV shows—New Girl, House of Cards, or Scandal—to see protagonists clad in chic silk or cotton designs reminiscent of a tidier bedtime era. But while earlier decades cherished the ensemble for its conservatism, today's pajamas differ in terms of comfort, style, and intent. For consumers, the revival is partially inspired by recent Fashion Week runways, an overall trend toward healthier living, increased awareness of the benefits of sleep, and fresh new takes on vintage designs.

Microsoft has published detailed instructions on how to stop your computer from trying to upgrade itself to Windows 10.

The walkthrough will allow IT admins both to opt out of the automatic upgrade to Windows 10 and disable the Get Windows 10 icon from showing on the taskbar. The guide, published here, details how to install and configure a Group Policy Object to block the upgrade options. The policy settings can be enabled by users running Windows 7, Windows 7 for Embedded Systems, Windows 8.1, and Windows Embedded 8.1 Pro. The configuration changes reportedly work, although there is always a chance that future changes may re-enable the Get Windows 10 app, which nags users of Windows 7 and 8 to upgrade. From next year Windows 10 will automatically begin installing on most Windows 7 and 8.1 machines - although the tweaks will also block this upgrade from taking place. Lifehack.
