‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Calls Incestuous Relationship ‘One Of The Few True Love Stories’! – Perez Hilton

We just gotta say it — actors need to quit this thing where they *need to believe they’re the good guy* in order to portray their character properly. It’s not like all y’all are playing Ruth Bader-Ginsburg all the time! Every time we see one of these thespians in an interview saying, “Well, from the cannibal rapist’s point of view…,” we roll our eyes like we’re ready to warg into Hodor. So naturally this latest interview with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau gave us a little bit of the UGH factor. The traditionally handsome Danish film star has been trying to win us back for seven seasons of Game of Thrones, ever since his character Jaime Lannister tried to murder a 10-year-old boy who caught him having …

Trump Administration Aims To Use Facebook To Spy On People Collecting Disability

spy on people collecting federal disability payments, The New York Times reported. The aim is to use a form of federal surveillance to monitor social media posts of Social Security disability payment recipients to see whether they’re really disabled. Critics say social media photos and posts may be a poor representation of someone’s disability. Judging a mental health issue from a photo, for example, would be nearly impossible.  More than 10 million people receive Social Security disability benefits worth more than $11 billion a month. Recipients have paid into the system through payroll taxes. The new focus on fraud comes as applications for disability payments plunged 29 percent last year from a peak of 2.9 million in 2010, according to …

Mysterious Outbreak Of Virus Linked To Gruesome Religious Ritual

Doctors were puzzled when an outbreak of a little-known virus was reported among a group of 10 people living in London. They were non-drug users, had never received a blood transfusion, and showed no other identifiable risk factors for bloodborne viruses The case was somewhat of a mystery, but then one of the doctors noticed unusual scars across one of the patient’s back. This led them to identify a common thread between all of the infected men: they were all Muslims who had taken part in a bloody blade-sharing religious ritual. Reporting in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, scientists from Imperial College London and St Mary’s Hospital in London documented the spread of Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) …

Air Pollution Now Kills More People Than Smoking, Says New Study

Air pollution now kills more people than cigarettes, according to recent research published in the European Heart Journal. A new study led by the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry suggests that air pollution is responsible for nearly 9 million premature deaths each year – almost double the number previously estimated. Past studies have estimated the number of extra deaths globally to be 4.5 million, however, a new approach has shown that air pollution could be responsible for as many as 8.8 million extra deaths. In Europe alone, it’s believed around 790,000 people die prematurely due to poor air quality. “To put this into perspective, this means that air pollution causes more extra deaths a year than tobacco smoking, which the World Health Organization …

To combat a terrible measles epidemic, Italy is no longer putting up with unvaccinated kids.

via Sanofi Pasteur / Flickr Between 2017 and 2018 the number of global measles cases increased by 48.1% according to calculations by UNICEF. Recent outbreaks have been caused by poor health infrastructure, low awareness, complacency and, in the developed world, a backlash against vaccinations. Even though report after report shows there is no link between vaccinations and autism, a small percentage of people in the developed world refuse to vaccinate their children resulting in outbreaks of diseases that were nearly eradicated. In the U.S., children must have the following vaccinations to attend public school: diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis; polio, measles, and rubella. However, in 47 states, parents can get an exception for personal reasons. The only states that prohibit such exemptions …

Senate GOP effort on Trump border wall seems to fall short

After a closed-door lunch, GOP lawmakers predicted the Senate would approve a resolution Thursday annulling the emergency Trump has declared along the border. The Democratic-led House passed the legislation last month, meaning Senate assent would send it to Trump. “It was called turn out the lights, the party’s over,” said Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., recalling a favorite refrain of “Monday Night Football” announcers when a game was out of reach. “Well, that’s appropriate right now.” Republicans hoped Trump would support a separate measure curbing a president’s powers to declare future emergencies. Had he done so, they thought, it would be easier for reluctant GOP senators to support the emergency Trump has proclaimed to steer $3.6 billion more than Congress has …

How young people can help to end child labor

(CNN)I’ve been told it takes a village to raise a child, but in my 24 years as a children’s rights activist, I’ve learned the opposite is true too. “Battled child labor, boy, 12, murdered.” I was stunned. I was sitting at a breakfast table in small town, Ontario, Canada, with enough food to eat, a soccer coach and a comfortable life. Meanwhile, another boy my age had been gunned down in Pakistan for speaking out about the factory owners who bought him for $16 to settle a family debt. How could two lives be so different? I started calling anti-child labor organizations, asking how I could help. They told me a kid couldn’t make any difference, so I decided to …

Zaghari-Ratcliffe to get diplomatic protection

The Iranian ambassador to London said the decision “contravenes international law”. Iran refuses to recognise dual nationals so does not recognise Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe’s right to be represented by Britain. Diplomatic protection is a rare legal procedure in international law. States can use it to help one of their nationals whose rights have been breached in another country. It is very different to diplomatic immunity, which is something given to diplomats to ensure their safe passage and protection from prosecution. What is diplomatic protection? What is the Zaghari-Ratcliffe case about? Iran ‘tried to get jailed mum to spy on UK’ According to the BBC’s diplomatic correspondent James Landale, her new legal status will not force Iran to change the way it …
