    Watchdogs upheld two complaints from viewersA "dangerous" TV ad showing a woman chewing gum while playing football has been shown the red card. Watchdogs upheld two complaints from viewers who feared the ad for Wrigley's Extra might encourage kids to carry out the "dangerous practice" of chewing gum while playing footie. The ad, which was seen last September, was found to be in breach of rules regarding children plus harm and offence. It was banned from being shown again, and Wrigley's - based in Devon - were warned not to show people chewing gum while playing sport in any future...

    A Pennsylvania pastor who was caught sitting in a parked car with a bound and naked man insists he was simply counseling the man. While answering a call about a suspicious vehicle, police discovered a naked man tied up with nylon rope sitting in the front seat of a car parked outside of a home. In the backseat was 61-year-old George Nelson Gregory, a preacher at the Waterfront Christian Community Church. When officers inquired about the situation, Gregory allegedly told them he and the man “were just playing” and that they “meet up from time to time to play with...
  • 2018 Winter Olympics Breaks Record, Stocks 110,000 Condoms For Athletes

    The astonishing number is reportedly 10,000 more than the number of condoms distributed to athletes during the previous Winter Olympics held in Sochi, Russia. In fact, it breaks the record of the most number of condoms prepared for all participants in the history of Winter Olympics. According to the outlet, the amount will be allotted to 2,925 athletes representing 90 countries that will stay in the Olympic Village. That means each athlete gets approximately 37 condoms for the duration of the event, which will run from February 9 to February 25. To put it into perspective, that’s about 2.5 condoms...

A total of 110,000 contraceptive sheaths will be distributed before the beginning of the games on Friday week (9 February) - 10,000 more than at Vancouver in 2010 or Sochi in 2014.

    A Colorado woman’s death remains a mystery after investigators said the device at the center of her bungee jumping accident was functioning properly. The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment worked with manufacturer Head Rush Technologies to test the device and is not investigating other potential reasons for the Jan. 4 fall that killed 20-year-old Ciara Romero, reports the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel. Romero was participating in a 70-foot bungee-jump feature at Get Air at the Silo when she fell. Participants climb one of the silo’s towers, then transfer to a wooden platform and jump off while attached to a...

    Porn star August Ames was found dead of an apparent suicide Wednesday, one day after the adult actress was apparently bullied by social justice warriors on social media for explaining she would not perform in scenes alongside male actors who also perform in gay porn, due to health concerns. Ames, whose real name is Mercedes Grabowski, “died of asphyxia due to hanging” in what has been ruled as a suicide, according to Ventura County, California officials. She was 23 years old. Grabowski was bullied on Twitter after she announced her refusal to do porn scenes with gay porn actors, citing...

    French wingsuit flyers recently completed an unbelievable stunt following a B.A.S.E. jump from the top of the Jungfrau mountain in Switzerland. Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet, known as the Soul Flyers, caught up with and flew into a plane in mid-air. As part of their project A Door in the Sky, which they had spent several months training for by completing more than 100 test flights in Empuriabrava in Spain, the duo B.A.S.E jumped from the top of the Jungfrau, one of Europe’s highest mountains, and flew into a Pilatus Porter light aircraft in mid-air.

    Liberalism isn’t always about tightening restrictions, because some restrictions are good. For example, even as California introduces prison sentences for those who insist on referring to transsexuals with biologically correct pronouns, we read this: Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection. By “knowingly,” they mean deliberately. To be prosecuted for a felony under the old law required intent to transmit HIV, which leads to the horrific disease AIDS. It gets worse: The measure also applies to those who...

    In its rush to destroy itself, California has gone and done this: Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection. The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive. Modern medicine allows those with HIV to live longer lives and nearly eliminates the possibility of transmission, according to state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Todd Gloria (D-San Diego), authors of the bill.“Today California took a major step toward treating...

    The horrific treatment of Dr. Paul Church has become a nightmare – affecting him, of course, but ultimately all of us as well. Because he told the medical truth and refused to bow to political correctness on this critical public health issue, he has now been banned from four prominent Boston area hospitals and a urology clinic. This is the frightening state of today’s medical profession. Dr. Church is a urologist who was on the staff of several major Boston area hospitals and clinics for nearly 30 years. He was on the faculty of Harvard Medical School. He has done...

    Top 10 Oregon counties for gonorrhea Updated July 15, 2017 Posted July 11, 2017 A gonorrhea epidemic has hit Oregon amid public health concerns that the disease is becoming immune to standard treatment. Since 2012, cases have nearly tripled statewide, affecting just about every part of Oregon, including rural counties where infections have been traditionally low. Officials in some counties have become so concerned that they’ve launched public awareness campaigns, with ads on dating sites, Facebook and Google. In others, specialists have gone door-to-door, trying to track down infected people and their partners to get them treated. “We came to...

    A 66-year-old Japanese tourist has died, and his travel companion has been injured, after falling down stairs while attempting to take a selfie at the Taj Mahal. The man's death raises the selfie-related death toll this year — to 12. To put that in perspective, in 2015 there have so far been eight deaths caused by shark attacks. It sounds like a joke, but unfortunately it isn't: The deaths are a tragic reminder to travelers that focusing on a phone screen instead of unfamiliar surroundings is not safe. Four of the selfie deaths this year, like the tourist, identified as...
  • Match: Half of Millennials View Sex As a Way To Test For a 'Connection'

    MRC TV ^ | February 9, 2017 | Brittany M. Hughes just released their annual “Singles in America” survey, offering a chilling insight into the Millennial Generation -- those born between the early '80s and 2000 -- and what this demographic thinks about love, sex and relationships. It’s no secret that Millennials have a much looser – pun intended – view of sex and commitment than prior generations, following a change in social norms that now seem to place higher value on things like “strong, independent women” than on committed long-term relationships or the notion of waiting until marriage to become intimate. But Match’s study of 5,500 random Millennials pulls back...

    A recent (and first of its kind) study verifies again what many Christians have long warned about the homosexual lifestyle. Published in August of 2016 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the study—"Sexual Identity, Sex of Sexual Contacts, and Health Related Behaviors Among Students in Grades 9-12"—looked at a wide variety of risky behaviors among U.S. high school students. .. In almost every instance, the risky behavior measured—especially behaviors that are often linked to a moral decision—was much more prevalent among teenagers engaging in homosexual activity. In addition, and unsurprisingly, those students with the healthiest outcomes...
