  • How Much Would Your Body Cost if You Had to Buy it One Piece at a Time? (Vanity)

    I received the bill for a single porcelain crown today. It was almost $900. That got me to thinking, what would it cost if you had to pay for all of your body parts one piece at a time? At today's prices, probably way more than a lot of us are worth. God sure was good to us. He gave most of us all the body parts we needed for free. Of course good ol' mom and dad helped! Just something to be thankful for and a break from thinking about all the trouble in the world today.

    Some of our deepest challenges as believers involve dealing with the sins of others, particularly those whom we love. Whether it is a relative struggling with addiction, a best friend unfaithful to his spouse, or a loved one embracing sexual perversion we often feel caught between our genuine love for the sinner and our genuine revulsion at the sin. The bromide “Hate the sin, love the sinner,” while at least infused with a touch of wisdom, doesn’t typically answer all the hard questions. When confronted with tough moral calls it’s often wise to slow down and define our terms. First,...

    A new play, World Factory, asks the audience to run a clothing factory in China – and even the creators have been surprised at how people have behaved.The choices were stark: sack a third of our workforce or cut their wages by a third. After a short board meeting we cut their wages, assured they would survive and that, with a bit of cajoling, they would return to our sweatshop in Shenzhen after their two-week break. But that was only the start. In Zoe Svendsen’s play World Factory at the Young Vic, the audience becomes the cast. Sixteen teams sit...

    In her sexy, stormy, spiritual memoir, Honey in the River, Marsha Scarbrough explores the contemporary relevance of ancient African wisdom teachings, wrapped around a love affair with a married African shaman. The mythology and metaphysics of Ifa, the indigenous religion of the Yoruba people of West Africa, is woven throughout her fast-paced tale that combines spiritual text with descriptions of her experiences in rhythm, dance and deep trance. As she blends archetypal drama and epic soap opera, Marsha reveals and befriends her personal shadow. I interviewed Marsha about her book and what it was like become so deeply involved with...

    Last week The Ryersonian reported on an incident that involved two first-year journalism students who were turned away from an event organized by Racialized Students' Collective because they are white. Since then there has been a lot of commentary on the piece and a lot of debate -- a lot of the criticism is valid. There are two sides to the story: 1) the media has a right to attend public events and report on matters that are in the public interest. The student media needs to cover initiatives that are happening on campus so that we draw attention to...

According to the tech giant's spokesperson, if an internet user was racist and frequently used such words on the Internet, the map search results will show such words, as their ranking systems were designed to return results that match a person's query, TMZ.com reported. In short it means that apparently a lot people have calling President Obama's residence as the "n***a house." However, Google added...

    Consisting simply of a surface and legs, the table is one piece of furniture that has remained largely the same for thousands of years. But now, a French design duo has come up with a way to turn the humble table into a means of climate control that doesn't use any electricity. Paris-based industrial designer Jean-Sébastien Lagrange teamed up with French engineer Raphaël Ménard to create the Zero Energy Furniture table, also known as the ZEF Climatic Table. The ZEF table looks like any other with the sleek design of a solid plank oak top and angled legs — but...

    The more high-brow sorts of reality shows involve taking a group of people, sometimes a family, into a period in history and see how they cope. Examples of this subset of the genre include “The 1900 House” and “The Colonial House.” The viewer was invited to have fun watching people having to cope without modern conveniences while wearing quaint costumes. The Associated Press reported on Friday that a reality show in the Czech Republic, entitled “A Vacation in the Protectorate,” is going to take a family back to the days of the Nazi occupation and see how they cope with...

    Scott Santens has been thinking a lot about fish lately. Specifically, he’s been reflecting on the aphorism, “If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he eats for life.” What Santens wants to know is this: “If you build a robot to fish, do all men starve, or do all men eat?” Santens is 37 years old, and he’s a leader in the basic income movement—a worldwide network of thousands of advocates (26,000 on Reddit alone) who believe that governments should provide every citizen with a monthly stipend big...

    Top feminist academics that have respectable diverse doctorates from medieval art to 6th century English to Women’s Studies gathered at the University of Toronto meeting center to discuss if human flatulence could be sexist. Ashleigh Ingle, a proud feminist and an anarchist, argued that because of patriarchal gender norms women were not allowed to release gas in public because of men’s unreal expectations of women to be clean and feminine. Furthermore she articulated that if a woman was to fart in the presence of a man and the man responded by farting louder than the woman, then that would be...

O’Neill told The Hill she took issue with Obama calling Warren by her first name during an interview with Yahoo News published Saturday. “Yes, I think it is sexist,” O’Neill said. “I think the president was trying to build up his own trustworthiness on this issue by convincing us that Senator Warren’s concerns are not to be taken seriously.

    MA Congressman Joe Kennedy announced last night that he is going to lead the charge in our Commonwealth for… the Bathroom Bill. Transgender activists have apparently enlisted the young and famously-named congressman as the spokesman for their demands to get into all public bathrooms, locker rooms, and otherwise “lawfully sex-segregated facilities.” They are hoping to strong-arm the legislature into passing HB 1577, a new Bathroom Bill, which would essentially make all ‘public accommodations’ gender (and gender identity) neutral! Beyond the obvious threat to safety, modesty and privacy, in 2010, a Boston man who ‘identifies’ as a woman, was arrested for...

Now, she says, after seeing what’s happened to other young black unarmed men, it’s never been clearer that Trayvon’s skin color led to him being profiled and killed. “It was not about that hoodie, and I need to tell you that,” Fulton told a standing room only crowd in Los Angeles on Wednesday. “It was absolutely about the color of his skin.” Fulton, who became an activist against gun violence after Trayvon Martin’s death in 2012, spoke during a discussion hosted by...

    (AUDIO-AT-LINK) In a sly way, Prince has always been a political artist. Like Marcel Duchamp upending the art world with his readymades, he stormed the pop scene courting controversy, but always with a wink. Like Bob Dylan throwing down signs in the video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues," he sent out messages – some of them explicit, as in his anti-nuclear plea "Ronnie Talk To Russia" and the more recent call to the streets, "MARZ" – but scrambled them in ways that made them both poetic and prophetic. Like Jimi Hendrix, he's made bold statements within a veil of feedback and...

Forget about children being beheaded, men burnt to death, or women sold into sexual slavery; a place of business has erected a small, makeshift “sign,” and we all know that this is something to be hailed as unacceptable. Although we are relieved that a group of Islamists didn’t arrive with body armor and Quranic justification to blow the place away with AK-47s, we are definitely hearing from...

Amazon has taken a stand for social engineers and against sexual differences between children. In a move sure to electrify homosexualists, feminists and socialists, the online retail giant has deleted the “boy” and “girl” buttons from its online menu, hindering customers from searching and choosing toys based on sex...

    A Syrian woman accused of adultery, and sentenced by ISIS to death by stoning, has survived the wicked and cruel punishment. The Islamic State group, also known as ISIS, proclaimed the Syrian town of Raqa its capital after invading it, as well as many other areas in Iraq and Syria, last summer. With already vicious laws against women throughout much of the Middle East, the notoriously brutal and often sickening treatment of women and children by ISIS certainly hasn’t made life any more forgiving for women in those occupied areas. In a miracle of sorts, however, one woman facing jihadist...

Watch CNN for the bland dilution of information into items of mild interest, always footnoted to the official story. But, if this past week, you wanted to see the clash between the official story of white America and the actual lived experience of black Americans, watch Fox News. In prime time,...

    These days you need a very strong stomach to sit through television commercials, which appear to be more concerned with promoting liberal social engineering objectives than with selling products. This emotionally exploitative Wells Fargo ad promoting homosexual adoption is so maudlin that it could literally induce vomiting: Your television serves as a window on the world — except that with a window, you see what is really out there. On television, you see only what moonbats want you to see. They are pressing this advantage to the fullest. Strengthen your stomach, because progressives can be counted on to always keep...

After being banned from Reddit groups /r/feminism and /r/LGBT for posting opinions they find disagreeable, I was finally asked an excellent question in response to my post on Jutice Alito’s line of questioning in Tuesday’s Supreme Court oral arguments on gay marriage.

Men were walking hand in hand with no fear of a dirty look or dangerous encounter. Pride flags blew in the breeze from every rooftop. You could dance the hours away into the night and then feel the ocean breeze whip across your face...

He was prevented from teaching his cessationist gospel in VINACC. How did Peters become an...

The president said he doesn’t have a “bucket list,” but does have something that rhymes with that. “Take executive action on immigration? Bucket.” “Being president is never easy,” Obama said. “I still have to fix a broken...

    GOP candidates constantly invoke the Constitution. A Yale Law professor reveals what they all fail to understand. With the 2016 election cycle having kicked into first-gear already, any American who hasn’t inured themselves to the monotonous (and often ultimately meaningless) repetition of the word “Constitution” is advised to get to self-desensitizing — and quick. Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have already made a fetishized version of the U.S.’s supreme governing document central to their campaign rhetoric; and even politicians less beloved by the supposedly Constitution-crazy Tea Party, like Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton, are likely to soon follow suit....

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who recently announced plans to retire, rebutted conservative media speculation on Wednesday that his severe injuries are the result of a run-in with the mob. On CNBC's "Speakeasy," host John Harwood asked Reid about theories put forth by conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and Breitbart News that the injuries Reid sustained at the beginning of this year, including a blow to his right eye, are not, as he has said, the result of an accident involving elastic exercise equipment. "The last few days, a bunch of people are saying, Reid, he didn't have an exercise...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s complete inaccessibility — and the media’s desperate desire to cover her every move — finally came to a head Tuesday, when MSNBC cameras caught a desperate gaggle of reporters chasing down her van as she arrived at an event. Seriously, watch the video. It’s pathetic. MSNBC host Thomas Roberts seemed to enjoy giving a live commentary. “That guy in the orange pants is pretty quick. I’m looking at these people — wow! Orange pants, he’s really outnumbered now by all the people racing to the back.” At least one respected member of the national media...

    We apologise for this aneurysm inducing news, but seriously a Mufti in Saudi Arabia has just declared that a Muslim can cannibalise his wife. You heard correctly: Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, a man of religious power in Saudi Arabia, believes it is halal to eat your wife. Clarifying his stance, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah explains that literally eating your wife is permitted only if you're extremely hungry. Translating what appeared on multiple Arab websites (here, here, here, here and here): “A fatwa attributed to the Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, which allows a man to eat his...

    The Pontiac Daily Leader ^ | April 11, 2015 | Paul Westermeyer
    Pontiac, Ill. - I received a call last week from a guy asking if he and his fellows could get some media coverage for the local chapter of Guns Save Life. Though this is something we don’t typically do, I gave him the “We’ll look into it” line. Then there was this exchange: “I also have a birthday I want to put in the paper, but when I walked by your offices, I noticed a sign that said I was unwelcome.” Come again? What sign? “The sign with the handgun and the red cross through it — I’m unwelcome in...

    A second gutwrenching phenomenon, known as the Harf barf, is rocking the nation. State Department stumble bum Marie Harf follows on the heels of the White House Fraud 'n' Thief, who made the "Obama retch" a household phrase. Both phenomena have been observed across the breadth of the country from San Francisco to K Street. In one test, sequential performances of Harf and Obama, clipped from press conferences, triggered nausea of varying severity in 75 percent of adults randomly sampled, some describing the audio-visual experience as "torturous."

    Writing an opinion piece to Michigan State University’s paper the State News, Rashad Timmons says that microaggressions are causing him several medical afflictions. His letter was titled, “Intentional or not, microaggressions severely impact underrepresented members of society.” According to Timmons, people who “are not privileged” are suffering greatly from the intentional and unintentional triggers that others are causing. “On a campus,” he writes, ” — and nation at large — in which whiteness, patriarchy, heteronormativity, cissexism, ableism and classism prevail, students that are not privileged by these constructs often have difficulty navigating hegemonic, oppressive environments.” Timmons writes about different maladies...
