  1. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said his country will boycott electronic products made in the US amid an escalating diplomatic feud with the Trump administration that has contributed to a currency meltdown in Turkey. Advertisement The move comes after the US imposed sanctions on two Turkish ministers over the continued detention of an American pastor on terror-related charges. President Donald Trump has also compounded the country's economic crisis by doubling steel and aluminium tariffs to 50% and 20% respectively. Mr Erdogan suggested Turkey would stop procuring US-made iPhones and buy Korean Samsung or Turkish-made Vestel devices instead. He said: "If they have the iPhone, there is Samsung elsewhere. We have Vestel." It is unclear how the Turkish leader plans to implement the boycott. https://www.google.com/amp/s/news.sky.com/story/amp/turkey-to-boycott-us-electronics-including-iphone-11472506
  2. During the latest installment of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts" on Tuesday's episode of CBS' "The Late Late Show," James Corden explained why Kanye West hasn't appeared on "Carpool Karaoke." According to Corden, the rapper was scheduled to shoot the popular musical segment and canceled at least twice — once shortly before it was time to film. The host said that the last-minute cancellation cost the "The Late Late Show" $45,000. Source

  4. morons Dear Member, Last night, the Board of Governors met to elect new board officers, and discuss and approve significant changes to the Oscars telecast. The Board of Governors, staff, Academy members, and various working groups spent the last several months discussing improvements to the show. Tonight, the Board approved three key changes: 1. A three-hour Oscars telecast We are committed to producing an entertaining show in three hours, delivering a more accessible Oscars for our viewers worldwide. To honor all 24 award categories, we will present select categories live, in the Dolby Theatre, during commercial breaks (categories to be determined). The winning moments will then be edited and aired later in the broadcast. 2. New award category We will create a new category for outstanding achievement in popular film. Eligibility requirements and other key details will be forthcoming. 3. Earlier airdate for 92nd Oscars The date of the 92nd Oscars telecast will move to Sunday, February 9, 2020, from the previously announced February 23. The date change will not affect awards eligibility dates or the voting process. The 91st Oscars telecast remains as announced on Sunday, February 24, 2019. We have heard from many of you about improvements needed to keep the Oscars and our Academy relevant in a changing world. The Board of Governors took this charge seriously. We are excited about these steps, and look forward to sharing more details with you.

  6. ROME — Pope Francis has declared the death penalty wrong in all cases, a definitive change in church teaching that is likely to challenge Catholic politicians, judges and officials who have argued that their church was not entirely opposed to capital punishment. Before, church doctrine accepted the death penalty if it was “the only practicable way” to defend lives, an opening that some Catholics took as license to support capital punishment in many cases. But Francis said executions were unacceptable in all cases because they are “an attack” on human dignity, the Vatican announced on Thursday, adding that the church would work “with determination” to abolish capital punishment worldwide. Francis made the change to the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church, the book of doctrine that is taught to Catholic children worldwide and studied by adults in a church with 1.2 billion members. Abolishing the death penalty has long been one of his top priorities, along with saving the environment and caring for immigrants and refugees A majority of the world’s countries — including nearly every nation in Europe and Latin America, regions that are home to large Catholic populations — have already banned the death penalty, according to Amnesty International. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/02/world/europe/pope-death-penalty.html

  9. Soaring temperatures are giving men 'summer penises': Doctors confirm the heatwave is having a positive effect on the size of male genitals Men claim soaring temperatures improve their erections and penis sizes Heatwave is turning many males into 'showers not growers', they claim Doctor says sweating and drinking more water makes male genitals 'bloat' Another believes hot temperatures cause blood vessels to widen and 'swell' He added: 'There's a reason people don't take honeymoons to the North Pole' The heatwave is giving men 'summer penises', males claim. One man asked users of an online forum if anyone else's genitals grow during the summer months. Many men were quick to respond that soaring temperatures cause their penises to appear larger, their erections better and make them into 'showers instead of growers'. Doctors confirm 'summer penises' do exist, with one saying sweating and drinking more water makes male sexual organs appear 'bloated'. Dr Dudley Danoff, author of The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health, believes hot temperatures cause blood vessels to widen and penises to 'swell', adding: 'There's a reason people don't take honeymoons to the North Pole'. Writing on Reddit, one user asked others if they experienced 'bigger d**** in summer and smaller in winter'. He questioned whether heat improves blood flow to the sexual organ. Many users responded to his post, claiming penises enlarge during hot temperatures as 'part of your body trying to regulate ideal temperatures'. Another said this only happens to his testicles, with warm weather causing them to 'get to my knee'. Urologist Dr Jamin Brahmbhatt, from The PUR Clinic, Florida, argues men's penises always remain the same size, regardless of the weather, but adds blood vessels near the organs' surface may contract to maintain heat. Dr Dunoff claims hot weather may cause blood vessels to 'fill to the max' with blood, making erect penises appear larger. He told MEL Magazine: 'There’s a reason why a hot tub is attractive for romance.' This comes after another Reddit post revealed women are giving themselves 'peegasms'. Fans claim they achieve solo orgasms by urinating after holding it in. A man asked users of the online forum if they also have so-called 'p*** shivers' after his girlfriend told him releasing pent-up urine causes her to experience shivers 'from her spine to her head'. Many women were quick to reply that the technique creates a 'whole body massage'. Yet doctors are warning the trend could lead to painful urinary infections that may cause kidney damage.

  10. Donald Trump has been at war with transgender members of the Armed Forces since last summer, ever since tweeting they were no longer allowed to serve their country “in any capacity” because they’re too burdensome and distracting. Now, he’s turning his focus to soldiers living with HIV. The Department of Defense’s new “Deploy or Get Out!” policy, which goes into effect October 1, orders the Pentagon to deny people living with HIV from enlisting in the Armed Forces. It also deems current soldiers living with HIV “non-deployable”, then orders the Pentagon to discharge anyone who is unable to be deployed outside of the country for longer than 12 consecutive months. Now, two separate lawsuits, Harrison v. Mattis and Doe v. Mattis, are challenging the new policy, which Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says is to promote “readiness” within the Armed Forces, but which many others see as a thinly-veiled attempt at a government-sponsored HIV purge within the U.S. military. It’s estimated the futures of around 1,200 service members are now on the line. Queerty

  14. The Sharpes, both mechanical engineers in their early 30s, say their decision to raise their twins without designated genders evolved from a mix of research and personal experience. When Julia found out she was pregnant, she felt conflicted about learning the sex of the twins. As a female engineer in a male-dominated profession, she understood the constraints of gender expectations firsthand. Their Cambridge home is littered with toys that come from both the girls’ and the boys’ aisles — a dollhouse, a play gym, a bedroom full of stuffed animals, a basket of dolls. Their parents want to foster an environment of openness where the twins feel loved whether they grow up to identify as LGBTQ or not. That means learning to see their children simply as “kids” rather than as “boys” or “girls,” and encouraging others to do the same. That’s not always easy, or comfortable, in a gendered world. Family, friends and day care workers struggle with they/them pronouns, and not everyone understands the Sharpes’ decision to keep the children’s sex private. “We definitely got more pushback from co-workers, who were like: ‘Wait, you're not going to tell me what you're having? You're not going to tell me what your kids are?’” Julia said. “I’m like, ‘I’m telling you they're children.’ But they got really, really frustrated that we wouldn't tell them what their genitalia was, which is kind of a weird thing when you think about it.” “A theyby is, I think, different things to different people,” Nate Sharpe told NBC News. “For us, it means raising our kids with gender-neutral pronouns — so, ‘they,’ ‘them,’ ‘their,’ rather than assigning ‘he,’ ‘she,’ ‘him,’ ‘her’ from birth based on their anatomy.” Parents in the U.S. are increasingly raising children outside traditional gender norms — allowing boys and girls to play with the same toys and wear the same clothes — though experts say this is happening mostly in progressive, well-to-do enclaves. But what makes this “gender-open” style of parenting stand out, and even controversial in some circles, is that the parents do not reveal the sex of their children to anyone. Even the children, who are aware of their own body parts and how they may differ from others, are not taught to associate those body parts with being a boy or girl. If no one knows a child’s sex, these parents theorize, the child can’t be pigeonholed into gender stereotypes. NBC
  15. Emelia Holden, 21, didn’t hesitate to take matters into her own hands when a man groped her during her shift at Vinnie Van Go-Go’s in Savannah, Georgia on June 30. In surveillance footage of the incident, 31-year-old Ryan Cherwinski is shown grabbing Holden’s backside as he walks behind her. Holden immediately turns around and grabs him by his collar and slams him into a counter. “I looked at him and I said, ‘You don’t touch me, motherf—–!’ ” Holden tells PEOPLE. “I didn’t even think, I just reacted. I don’t know how I reacted the way I did. I’ve never done that before.” After defending herself, Holden instructed a coworker to call the police. Cherwinski, of Palm Bay, Florida, was arrested and charged with sexual battery, a Savannah Police Department spokeswoman tells PEOPLE. “The guy claimed that he was just trying to push me out of the way and, ‘Oh, I barely touched you.’ Once the police saw the video, they immediately arrested him. There was no doubt that he did it,” Holden says, adding that customers nearby gave her high-fives. She says that she was pleased when police arrested her attacker. “I’m not glad that it happened, but I’m glad that it’s had such a positive outcome,” she tells PEOPLE, revealing that she’s received dozens of Facebook messages with praise from women everywhere. “I’m glad that other women can see this and know that you can stand up for yourself. You also have the right to wear whatever you want without having to worry about being groped.” She adds: “It’s nice to know that I have empowered other women.” In the wake of the incident, Holden has been using the spotlight to benefit a local animal shelter through a GoFundMe page.

  19. Last month, SOPHIE released her new album, OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES, and it looks like she has a lot more new music in the pipeline. In a new interview with MondoSonoro, she says that she has her next album finished and plans to release four albums in total before the end of the year. When asked to clarify whether she means EPs or LPs, she said (through translation): “A mix. I do not know what a damn album is! The barrier between the EP and the LP is becoming more diffuse, that’s why I can not define it. It is not something that I care about. It will be four releases. This is what I want to do right now.” As of late, SOPHIE has been talking about how busy she’s been in the studio. Earlier this month, she confirmed that she was working with Lady Gaga, and in a recent interview with Lenny Letter, she says that she has done so much collaborating that: “Basically, I’ve done a whole new album in the last two weeks.” https://www.stereogum.com/2006597/sophie-has-three-more-albums-coming-this-year/news/
