What is happening to global temperatures in reality? The answer is: almost nothing for more than 10 years. Monthly values of the global temperature anomaly of the lower atmosphere, compiled at the University of Alabama from NASA satellite data, can be found at the website http://www.drroyspencer.com/latest-global-temperatures/. The latest (February 2012) monthly global temperature anomaly for the lower atmosphere was minus 0.12 degrees Celsius, slightly less than the average since the satellite record of temperatures began in 1979.

The lack of any statistically significant warming for over a decade has little effect on the lies that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and its supporters attempt to demonize the atmospheric gas CO2 which is released when fossil fuels are burned.

The burning of fossil fuels has been one reason for an increase of CO2 levels in the atmosphere to around 395 ppm (or parts per million), up from preindustrial levels of about 280 ppm.

OR IN OTHER WORDS IT YOU HAD A STACK OF PAPER 12,500 SHEETS HIGH

THEN

FOUR OF THOSE SHEETS WOULD REPRESENT THE AMOUNT OF CO2 IN THE AIR

AND

ADDING ONE MORE SHEET WOULD REPRESENT THE INCREASE SINCE 1850

CO2 is not a pollutant. Life on earth flourished for hundreds of millions of years at much higher CO2 levels than we see today. Increasing CO2 levels will be a net benefit because cultivated plants grow better and are more resistant to drought at higher CO2 levels, and because warming and other supposedly harmful effects of CO2 have been greatly exaggerated. Nations with affordable energy from fossil fuels are more prosperous and healthy than those without.

The direct warming due to doubling CO2 levels in the atmosphere can be calculated to cause a warming of about one degree Celsius.

The IPCC computer models (Now proven to be manipulated) predict a much larger warming, three degrees Celsius or even more, because they assume changes in water vapor or clouds that supposedly amplify the direct warming from CO2. Many lines of observational evidence suggest that this “positive feedback” also has been greatly exaggerated.

There has indeed been some warming, perhaps about 0.8 degrees Celsius, since the end of the so-called Little Ice Age (THANK GOD!) in the early 1800s. Some of that warming has probably come from increased amounts of CO2, but the timing of the warming—much of it before CO2 levels had increased appreciably—suggests that a substantial fraction of the warming is from natural causes that have nothing to do with mankind.

Frustrated by the lack of computer-predicted warming over the past decade, some IPCC supporters have been claiming that “extreme weather” has become more common because of more CO2.

IN THE 70’S IT WAS GLOBAL COOLING

IN THE 90’S IT WAS GLOBAL WARMING

IN THE 2000’S IT WAS CLIMATE CHANGE

NOW IT’S “EXTREME WEATHER”

GIVE US A FUCKING BREAK YOU ECO-NAZIS!

After an unusually cold winter in 2011 (December 2010-February 2011) the winter of 2012 was unusually warm in the continental United States. But the winter of 2012 was bitter in Europe, Asia and Alaska.

Weather conditions similar to 2012 occurred in the winter of 1942, when the U.S. Midwest was unusually warm, and when the Wehrmacht encountered the formidable forces of “General Frost” in a Russian winter not unlike the one Russians just had.

A Gift For the Muslim Couple

The 160-page book, published by Idara Impex in New Delhi, India, is written by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who’s described in the book’s foreword as a “prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning.”

In the book’s opening pages, it is written that “it might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her.”

Later, its author advises that “the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow sometimes.”

Page 45 contains the rights of the husband, which include his wife’s inability to leave “his house without his permission,” and that his wife must “fulfill his desires” and “not allow herself to be untidy … but should beautify herself for him … ”

Translated: Trim Sasquatch and take a bath!

In terms of physical punishment, the book advises that a husband may scold her, “beat by hand or stick,” withhold money from her or “pull (her) by the ears,” but should “refrain from beating her excessively.”

Moderate Muslim voice Tarek Fatah says the shopkeeper should be charged for selling such a book.

“I wouldn’t say it’s hate, but it is inciting men to hit women,” said Fatah, who identified the book’s author as a prominent Islamic scholar. “This is new to you, but the Muslim community knows that this is widespread, that a woman can be beaten. Muslim leaders will deny this, but… ”

Then is religious freedom granted to Muslims and shield them from prosecution?

AT&T is paid about $1.30 for each minute of all IP Relay calls it hosts, and the US government, which subsidizes the service, has paid the company handsomely for IP Relay calls that the DoJ says AT&T should have known were fraudulent. How handsomely? The DoJ says that such payments to AT&T have added up to “millions of dollars.”

In 2009, the Federal Communications Commission, aware that IP Relay fraud was rampant, began a program in which service providers such as AT&T were required to register users of the service, in an effort to cut down on illegal use of the system by foreign scammers, many of whom were located in – wait for it – Nigeria.

But when AT$T or Verizon cheats their customers or passess on some foolish charge just try to see if the government will help out the little guy.

Germs are good for you!

When it comes to bacteria, many people have a pretty simple view: Germs are bad, and our lives should be as free of them as possible.

But an alternate idea suggests just the opposite: Germs are a necessary part of a healthy immune system, helping our body’s defenses beef up and fight future illnesses. When a person’s exposure to germs is decreased, problems may arise.

The idea is called the hygiene hypothesis. For years, scientists have suspected that it played a role in how diseases affect people in the modern hand-sanitized world, but they never had any specific evidence.

But a new study from researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston has changed that.

Researchers studied two kinds of mice: One group had been exposed to a normal bacteria environment, and another group that was germ-free. When scientists compared the immune systems of the two groups of mice, they found what they cited as evidence to support the hygiene hypothesis – the mice that had been exposed to microbes had stronger immune systems than the germ-free mice.

Additionally, the germ-free mice had exaggerated inflammation in their lungs and colon, similar to what is seen in humans who have asthma and ulcerative colitis. The researchers found that a particular kind of immune cell, called an invariant natural killer T cell, was particularly hyperactive in these mice.

But all was not lost for the germ-free mice. When the researchers introduced them to microbes in the first few weeks of their lives, their fragile immune systems beefed up to a normal level. But older germ-free mice didn’t get this beneficial effect.

The results were published today in the journal Science.

The researchers only investigated mice, not people, but experts said the biologic mechanism they studied was similar in both rodents and humans.

Dr. Richard Blumberg, one of the study’s senior authors, said the findings suggest what scientists had suspected for years — that germs can benefit human health.

“We have co-evolved with microbes for millions of years. There is a very beneficial role for microbes in health,” Blumberg said. “What our study now shows is the critical importance of those microbes in the earliest periods of life.”

Although we might not realize it, we are living in a microbial world. Bacteria occupy nearly every conceivable surface, including the surface of our skin and inside our bodies. In fact, the human body has nearly 10 times the amount of bacterial cells as human cells.

As far as the hygiene hypothesis is concerned, this abundance of bacteria is a good thing, since it helps exercise our immune system.

“But as we moved into the 1950s and ’60s and ’70s, and as we in the developed world became progressively hygienic, we began to think that we wish to protect ourselves, particularly fragile newborn babies, from anything that might be microbial,” said Dr. William Schaffner, chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “And that turns out to be obviously what we might call an overreaction.”

Some scientists believe the consequences of our germophobia are very real. As human health and hygiene have improved, the number of people living with asthma, allergies and inflammatory bowel disease has also been rising. For instance, the number of children with asthma doubled from 3.6 percent in 1980 to 7.5 percent in 1995, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; by 2005, 12.7 percent of children had been diagnosed with asthma at some point in their lives.

These diseases are often the result of a symphony of genes and environmental factors. But many scientists say the higher numbers can be explained, at least partially, by the hygiene hypothesis. Immune systems that are less accustomed to dealing with microbes may have hyperactive reactions, leading to the wheezing of asthma or the abdominal cramping of inflammatory bowel disease.

“As we’re taking better care of our food, have less dirt and bacteria in our diet, and our immune system isn’t being stimulated by those microbes,” said Dr. Allen Meadows, an allergist and spokesman for the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

Although an increase in hyperactive immunity may be an unfortunate side effect of living more sanitary lives, experts say we shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bacterial bathwater. In general, it is a good thing that human life is generally more sanitary and some people have been able to lessen their exposure to malevolent microbes.

“Smallpox is not good for anyone,” Schaffner said.

Blumberg noted that the study’s findings don’t mean that people should change anything about the way they try to keep germs at bay. Much more research is needed on just how germs benefit the human immune system.

“It’s that middle road that we’re seeking. Hand washing and reasonable cleanliness are a good thing,” Schaffner said. “And let’s all remember, many of the bad guys can be prevented through vaccination.”

China has pledged to end the practice of taking organs from executed prisoners within the next five years, state media report.

China has long said it intends to reduce reliance on prisoners for organ donation, but the sheer volume cash for organs may make this difficult to achieve within the time frame set out.

Your next Bitch!

Officials say the country would instead rely on a new national donation system for organ transplants.

Prisoners account for two-thirds of China’s transplant organs, according to previous estimates from state media.

Human rights groups say death row inmates are pressured to donate organs – China denies such allegations.

Correspondents say that China has long said it intends to reduce reliance on prisoners for organ donation, but the sheer volume of organs needed may make this difficult to achieve within the timeframe set out.

Official figures from the health ministry show that about 1.5 million people need transplants, but only 10,000 are performed annually, by state-run agency Xinhua says.

Huang Jiefu, vice minister of health, was quoted by Xinhua as saying that a trial system for public organ donation has been launched in some areas.

“The pledge to abolish organ donations from condemned prisoners represents the resolve of the government,” he said.

He added that organ donations from prisoners were not ideal because infections are usually high, affecting the long-term survival rates of those who undergo the transplants.

Rights groups estimate that China puts to death thousands of prisoners a year.

Official figures, however, remain a state secret, according to the BBC’s Martin Patience in Beijing.

He adds that the country faces a severe shortage of organ donors, partly because many people do not want to donate organs due to the cultural belief of that they should be buried whole.

This has led to a thriving black market. Officials outlawed organ trafficking five years ago, but it still remains a problem.

The Red Cross Society of China has also said that guidelines would be issued regarding financial aid to families of the deceased organ donors to help curb the illegal organ trade.

A woman was today ordered to stand trial in Australia, accused of breaking into a man’s home and raping him. (Well just SUCKING HIS DICK)

MOVE OVER Amanda Rose Owens WE HAVE A NEW WINNER!!!

Rebecca Helen Elder, 39, pleaded not guilty to one count of aggravated serious criminal trespass at the man’s home, and one count of rape.

(Apparently her and Clinton agree on the definition of sex)

She appeared in Adelaide’s District Court this morning.

Prosecution documents, filed with the court, allege both offences took place at a suburban location between September 20 and September 23 last year.

At trial, prosecutors will allege Elder, of Parkside, broke into a house while its male occupant – who cannot be named – was lawfully on the premises.

They will also say she broke in with the intention of committing a further offense of rape.

Finally, prosecutors will accuse Elder of raping the man by performing an act of oral sex without his consent.

Judge Wayne Chivell remanded Elder on continuing bail until a directions hearing next month.

Women may be more of a slave to their hormones than they realize, according to a new fertility study.

Researchers found single women experienced more sexual fantasies on average during the most fertile part of their menstrual cycles compared to the rest of the month.

They also saw a shift in their daydreams to include a higher proportion of men at this time and reported feeling more aroused as well. This would suggest they were influenced by primal physical desires to find a mate.

A team led by Samantha Dawson from the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, set out to find out how a woman’s hormones affected their sexual interests.

‘I wanted to study fantasies because they are not constrained by the presence or absence of a partner, so the increase in fantasies and also the increase in how arousing those fantasies were is a reflection of this increased interest in sex mid cycle,’ Ms Dawson told Mail Online.

They studied 27 heterosexual women aged between 18 and 30 who were not in a relationship or on hormonal birth control. Each filled in a daily online diary about their sexual fantasies for one month.

The researchers worked out the 10-day window when each woman was most fertile by counting back from their last periods. During this window the women took a urine test that detected the exact day of ovulation (when an egg is released from one of the ovaries ready to be fertilised).

Revealed: The exercises most likely to give YOU an orgasm

When analyzing the results, they found women reported an average 0.77 fantasies a day. However, during the three days around ovulation this increased to 1.3 per day and the fantasies involved a higher proportion of men.

‘Women prefer someone whom they are able to receive genes from – hence why the number of men in the fantasies increases at ovulation,’ Ms Dawson said.

Both results were far higher than previous studies that suggested women only fantasied around once a week. The researchers suggested their latest figures were probably more accurate as they came from a daily measure and didn’t rely on long-term recollection.

The women were also more likely to focus on the emotional content of their fantasy during their fertile period rather than the visual, which is seen as more of a male characteristic.

Ms Dawson said: ‘I believe that when conception risk is highest (ovulation) women would want to secure a potential partner whom they are connected to emotionally, in case a pregnancy results from any interaction during this phase.’

Writing in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior the team concluded: ‘Sexual fantasies were significantly more frequent during ovulation than during non-fertile phases.

‘These results support other research that has suggested that peak fertility coincides with increased sexual desires, arousability, and sexual motivation in women.’

Michael Reece, a professor of health at Indiana University told LiveScience last year that most American adults ‘don’t have the basic education about their bodies, the bodies of their sexual partners, relationships or sexual behaviors.’

He continued: ‘We really have this deficit, I would say, across the country.’

Out of the 1,150 physicians who took part in the survey, 63 per cent indicated they routinely assessed patients’ sexual activities.

However only 40 per cent said they routinely asked about sexual problems, 28.5 per cent questioned patients about sexual satisfaction, 27.7 per cent asked about sexual orientation or sexual identity, and 13.8 per cent queried their patient’s sexual pleasure.

Interestingly, but not surprisingly, 25 per cent of the doctors said they have expressed disapproval of patients’ sexual practices.

Primarily, doctors who graduated from foreign medical institutions or ones who considered religion the most important part of their lives were part of this 25 per cent.

Those physicians who indicated a Roman Catholic religious affiliation were significantly less likely than others in the survey to ask patients about sexual activity.

With over two-thirds of those surveyed omitting to discuss sexual orientation, it was doctors 60 years or older who were the least likely to investigate a patient’s sexual orientation or sexual identity.

Janelle Sobecki, a study researcher and second-year medical student at Wayne State University explained to LiveScience that the problem may stem from medical teaching.

She said: ‘One explanation for the findings may be a deficit in physician training about diagnosis and treatment of female sexual problems.’

With the current open discourse regarding women’s reproduction rights in the United States taking main precedence in the lead up to the 2012 general elections, there is hope that physicians may feel more comfortable in asking their female patients the hard questions.

However Mr Lindau concluded it may be up to the patients to open up and start the discourse.

If you have a doctor you trust who has not brought this topic up, give it a try.

‘Waiting for the doctor to start the conversation may never happen. Communication is key.’

Im’ sure that chatting up that foreign male about your masturbation practices and how you now need to insert something into your ass to get off is going to go well.

Just what is it with dead mother fairy tales?  Why have the mother gone in so many stories?

Debby Herbenick and  Co-author is J. Dennis Fortenberry, M.D., professor at the IU School of Medicine and Center for Sexual Health Promotion affiliate came up with this conclusion after some women answered an online survey.

The promotion of junk science continues.

Herbenick states: “The most common exercises associated with exercise-induced orgasm were abdominal exercises, climbing poles or ropes, biking/spinning and weight lifting,”

UM,  Duh! I guess rubbing the vulva and clitoris on a bike seat in a rhythmic fashion should never produce an orgasm.  I guess sliding a pole or a big stiff thick rope up and down your clit and vulva should never produce sexual pleasure.

How fucking stupid are these people?  Then the Indiana University puts out some type of press release that they must have found something unusual.

Herbenick goes on to state:

“These data are interesting because they suggest that orgasm is not necessarily a sexual event, and they may also teach us more about the bodily processes underlying women’s experiences of orgasm.

WTF?  Is this the only female human being that has never had anything rub on her and produce a pleasant sensation.

AND HERE IS THE REST OF THE STORY:

The results are based on surveys administered online to 124 women who reported experiencing exercise-induced orgasms EIO and 246 women who experienced exercise-induced sexual pleasure EISP.

Herbenick said that the mechanisms behind exercise-induced orgasm and exercise-induced sexual pleasure remain unclear and, in future research, they hope to learn more about triggers for both.

Let’s see when a woman in a tight outfit gets into the “captains chair: to do the ab exercises with each leg lift her camel toe gets a good firm massage from said tight pants.

She also said that study findings may help women who experience EIO/EISP feel more normal about their experiences or put them into context.

In case the IU does not yet know it’s called MASTURBATION IN PUBLIC.

Just think if guys reported having orgasms when they lay face down on the weight lift bench and continue to pull themselves back and forth while pulling on some bar.

Just monitor this situation for the huge grant they are going after to do more research.

Secret Government Agents Prevent Run on US Bank

Frighteningly serious questions arise when plainclothes police officers arrest bank customers while entering or exiting banks with the intention of closing accounts as happened in lower Manhattan yesterday. Approximately two dozen customers, inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement’s criticism of US banking practices, visited a Citibank brach to reportedly close their accounts. At the 1:35 mark of following video you will see the incredibly hard to fathom arrest:Open video in new window at 1:25 mark.The woman, arrested on a public plaza outside the bank, indicates she had apparently been inside of the branch conducting or attempting to conduct bank business as is apparent from the papers in her hand. It is unclear at this time if the undercover police officer knew she had been inside as a result of his covert observation inside the bank branch UPDATE: see eyewitness account linked below. As the arrest took place beyond the bank’s doors, it is hard to imagine what trespassing grounds could exist.Perhaps anticipating backlash from this highly unusual incident, Citibank proactively released the following with regard to the incident: Citibank Public Affairs issued the following statement regarding today’s incident: “A large number of protesters entered our branch at 555 La Guardia Place around 2:00 PM today. They were very disruptive and refused to leave after being repeatedly asked, causing our staff to call 911. The Police asked the branch staff to close the branch until the protesters could be removed. Only one person asked to close an account and was accommodated.”There have no statements yet issued by the FDIC or other banking regulators in response to this arrest and the approximately two dozen others which occurred at the same time. While there are no federal restrictions on customer decisions to closing banking accounts, early last spring Citibank imposed possible 7-day restrictions on withdrawals from it’s checking accounts Citi customers can see the reservation of the bank’s right to withhold withdrawals on page 22 of the Client Manual effective January 1, 2010.The value of Citibank, whose rating was cut by Moody’s last month, has declined considerably more than it’s peers since it’s 2008 near collapse and $351 Billion bailout $45B from TARP, $306B in asset guarantees. Could it be that the NYPD is the Treasury Department’s last line of defense for the banking system and has been asked to help limit further runs on what many consider the country’s weakest Too Big Too Fail bank?UPDATE 10/17 4:30 PM: Gawker publishes account of eyewitness who confirms plainclothes officer was integrated among ‘activist bank customers’ without a displayed shield. Such conduct is reminiscent of the NYPD’s targeting surveillance programs at religious groups, a practice which the NYCLU has recently asked a Federal court to enjoin.UPDATE 10/17 11:30 PM: Wonkette publishes eyewitness account of Meaghan Linick who reports that arrestees were held for thirty hours.USLAW.COM NOTE: While the videotaped arrest of a customer outside of the Citibank branch by an undercover officer may look like any of the nearly thousand other disorderly conduct arrests associated with Occupy Wall Street, this police intervention in the retail banking system could have frightening implications for confidence in the entire banking system as depositors begin to question whether they’ll have access to their savings in the current crisis and whether the anemic ~1% interest rates are worth the risk of having to confront potential police interference with their financial affairs.RELATED LINKS:Compare NYPD behavior to another department’s on a similar call.

A few minutes of relatively strenuous sex can dramatically change a person’s DNA, experiments have revealed.

‘If you don’t use it, you lose it and this is one of the mechanisms that allows this to happen.’

Researcher Juleen Zierath, of the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, said: ‘We often say that you are what you eat. Well, muscle adapts to what you do.

The changes affect the chemicals which activate, silence and crank up genes and their actions.

In the case of muscle, exercise appears to crank up the genes needed to burn fat and sugar and support the body.

Just 20 minutes of fucking as hard as possible makes  a difference  although an exercise bike was used in the study the journal Cell Metabolism reports.

Professor Zierath and colleagues from Denmark and Dublin began with two experiments in which healthy men who didn’t take exercise regularly were  put through their paces on an exercise bike.

After they stopped, slivers of muscle were taken from their thigh and the DNA analyzed for chemical changes.

This revealed that changes occur after just minutes. However, gentle fucking won’t do.

The person needs to be out of breath and, while able to speak, to have difficulty in carrying on a conversation.

Further experiments on cells in the test-tube linked the changes to the contraction of muscle.

Coffee had a similar effect. But, unfortunately for those who would choose a cappuccino over a trip to the gym, it takes 50 to 100 strong coffees to mimic the effect of exercise on muscles.
