Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines [Paródia Feminista Defined Lines Legendado PT BR] Ghost writing is taking on an altogether different meaning in a mysterious case of alleged scientific fraud. The authors of a paper published in July (A. Vezyraki et al. Biochem. The paper, published in the Elsevier journal Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications (BBRC), is not the kind of prank that journals have encountered before, in which hoaxsters have submitted dummy papers to highlight weaknesses in the peer-review process. Too true, in the opinion of Bruce Spiegelman, a cell biologist at Harvard Medical School’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts. Now withdrawn, the article lists five authors who are all supposedly from the School of Health Sciences at the University of Thessaly in Trikala, Greece, and is entitled ‘Identification of meteorin and metrnl as two novel pro-differentiative adipokines: Possible roles in controlling adipogenesis and insulin sensitivity’. Spiegelman says that he smelt a rat as soon as he saw the paper.

Curious study calculates the “average” female face for each country Like us on FB: In a recent study, researchers from the Scottish University blended and aligned thousands of photos of women from 40 different countries to calculate the “average” face for each nation. The resulted images are surprisingly beautiful, as aligning and blending numerous images the most part of imperfections is inevitably removed. Truth be told the study used pictures of young women, that’s why the final images portray some well-above-the-average beauties. The interesting thing about this study is that looking through the different photos you can really distinguish all the physiognomic peculiarities that make each population different from the other.

'Quadruple helix' DNA seen in human cells 20 January 2013Last updated at 14:19 ET By Jonathan Amos Science correspondent, BBC News A representation of the four-stranded structure (L) with fluorescent markers revealing its presence inside cells (R) Cambridge University scientists say they have seen four-stranded DNA at work in human cells for the first time. The famous "molecule of life", which carries our genetic code, is more familiar to us as a double helix. But researchers tell the journal Nature Chemistry that the "quadruple helix" is also present in our cells, and in ways that might possibly relate to cancer. They suggest that control of the structures could provide novel ways to fight the disease. "The existence of these structures may be loaded when the cell has a certain genotype or a certain dysfunctional state," said Prof Shankar Balasubramanian from Cambridge's department of chemistry. Tag and track Today, the pair's modern counterparts in the university city continue to work on DNA's complexities. 'Funny target'

Le mythe de la beauté russe … 18 femmes avant et après maquillages Pour ceux d'entre vous qui se laissent impressionner par une "beauté universelle de la gente féminine russe" ... voici l'envers du décor. Le maquillage : simple astuce permettant de s’accorder un peu de sex-appeal dans un monde qui ne tourne qu’autour de l’apparence physique. Après avoir vu ces 18 clichés avant / après, les hommes arrêteront très probablement de taquiner leurs compagnes sur le temps passé dans la salle de bain à se pomponner en toute sobriété. C’est certain, ces photos signées Vadim Andreev (un artiste russe, vivant en Russie) permettent d’y voir plus clair : le maquillage, aussi décrié soit-il, mérite parfois quelques éloges ... parfois. Si parmi ces quelques inconnues ayant accepté de poser, les subterfuges bonne mine, blush et autres fards à paupières semblent faire plus qu’effet, on ne peut que conseiller à d’autres de ces modèles d’arrêter le massacre. Car l’artifice ne leur rend pas toujours justice. Petit voyage en Russie ... côté coulisses

A collection of facts, folklore and customs on the vital role our sense of smell plays in our sexuality. Introduction We would all agree that the most important sex organ is the brain. That's where our sex drive and reproductive behavior are programmed. When it comes to our senses, we tend to think that sight, touch, and sound are the most important sensual cues for humans. But when it comes to sex and mating, most important sensory organ may be our sense of smell. We know that odors and subliminal scents influence how animals develop, mate, bond, and nurture their offspring. Odors help us to distinguish lovers and family members, how often we have sex and with whom. Odors are the spice of life. Aromas, fragrances and scents have been used for centuries to enhance the experience of seduction and lovemaking. The sense of smell in the body is actually linked to a part of the brain that handles emotions and feelings.

Looking At Tears Under A Microscope Reveals A Shocking Fact. Share on Facebook One day Rose-Lynn Fisher wondered if her tears of grief would look different from her tears of joy, so she began to explore them up close under a microscope. She studied 100 different tears and found that basal tears (the ones that our body produces to lubricate our eyes) are drastically different from the tears that happen when we are chopping onions. Tears from laughing until crying Rose-Lynn Fisher Tears of change Tears of grief Tears from onions Joseph Stromberg of the Smithsonian’s Collage of Arts and Sciences explained that there are three major types of tears: basal, reflex, and psychic (triggered by emotions). Basal tears Tears of timeless reunion Tears of ending and beginning Tears of momentum, redirected Tears of release Tears of possibility and hope Tears of elation at a liminal moment Tears of remembrance Credit: Rose-Lynn Fisher Like snow flakes and fingerprints, no tears are alike.

My 'Naked' Truth | Robin Korth Naked, I stood at the closet doors with the lights on and made myself ready. I took a deep breath and positioned the mirrors so I could see all of me. I consciously worked to remove my self-believed inner image. I am a 59-year-old woman in great health and in good physical shape. Why this brutal scrutiny of myself? We met on a dating site. On Monday evening over the phone, I asked this man who had shared my bed for three nights running why we had not made love. I was stunned. We talked for some time more, my head reeling at the content of the conversation. He explained that now that I knew what was required, we could have a great time in the bedroom. When I told Dave that I never wanted to see or hear from him again, he was confused and complained that I was making a big deal out of nothing. As I looked in the mirror -- clear-eyed and brave -- I claimed every inch of my body with love, honor and deep care. Robin Korth enjoys interactions with her readers. Earlier on Huff/Post50: Alamy

Le seul moyen de préserver un musulman de l’adultère, c’est d’acheter des esclaves sexuelles Traite des blanches par l’empire Ottoman (Wikipédia) Tout écart au mariage est une remise en cause de la reconnaissance de paternité, pilier du patriarcat. « La paix soit avec vous et que les bénédictions miséricordieuses d’Allah soient sur vous ! Cette histoire m’en rappelle une plus ancienne. Le moufti m’a expliqué que le moyen d’obtenir des esclaves pour un pays musulman, c’est d’attaquer un pays chrétien ou un pays non musulmans et de faire esclaves les prisonniers de guerre [bonjour les Conventions de Genève !]. Dans l’islam on ne peut posséder une femme libre que par un contrat de mariage, mais une esclave elle est vendue et après que le prix a été payé elle devient une propriété, l’esclave est inférieur à la femme libre. Personnellement, j’espère que le Koweït légalisera l’esclavage sexuel. Quand il est mort, on a découvert qu’il possédait 2 000 esclaves sexuelles, alors qu’il n’avait qu’une épouse.

Captain Kirk should've blown up the Fesarius when he had the chance. So, a team of scientists in the UK claims they’ve found evidence for alien life coming to Earth. According to their paper, published in the Journal of Cosmology (more on that in a moment) they lofted a balloon to a height of 22-27 kilometers (13-17 miles). When they retrieved it, they found a single particle that appears to be part of a diatom, a microscopic plant. This, they claim, is evidence of life coming from space. Um, yeah. First off, I’ll note that the team publishing this paper includes one Chandra Wickramasinghe. Given that, any claims associated with his work should be taken with a large grain of salt. But what about their actual claims? They found what appears to be a fragment of a frustrule, the hard outer casing around a diatom. Weirdly, they apparently didn’t even check. On one stub was discovered part of a diatom which, we assume, is clear enough for experts on diatom taxonomy to precisely identify.

3000 Years Of Women’s Beauty Standards In A 3 Minute Video Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, but our idea of beauty over the past few decades has most definitely been programmed into us. Our youth are growing up with mass amounts of marketing around them, as they watch television and participate in life, they are constantly bombarded with a picture of “what is beautiful.” It’s a shame how our children grow up striving to achieve that particular look, and how they can be made to feel “ugly” if they do not fit the accepted model of what our corporations have defined as beautiful. As a result, our youth are not addressing their feelings and emotions, always being taught to look outside of themselves instead of within themselves for the answer. “If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think about how many industries would go out of business.” – Unknown It’s quite ridiculous when you think about it, because the programmed idea of beauty isn’t even real.
