NASA2,537,855Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008326

The breach occurred at the same time that the foundation’s multimedia news organization, the Daily Signal, has criticized the Obama administration and federal agencies such as the Office of Personnel Management over lax cybersecurity. One article in July was headlined “How Obama’s Poor Judgment Led to the Chinese Hack of OPM.”

Welcome to America, where a teenager can be convicted of a child-sex felony for 'molesting' herself.
#wtf   #facepalm  

"After a 16-year-old Fayetteville girl made a sexually explicit nude photo of herself for her boyfriend last fall, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office concluded that she committed two felony sex crimes against herself and arrested her in February.

The girl was listed on a warrant as both the adult perpetrator and the minor victim of two counts of sexual exploitation of minor - second-degree exploitation for making her photo and third-degree exploitation for having her photo in her possession.

A conviction could have put the girl in prison and would have required her to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. A plea bargain arranged for her in July should clear her record next summer."

What the fuck.___Welcome to America, where a teenager can be convicted of a child-sex felony for 'molesting' herself.

Other than the colour scheme, this is one gorgeous bike.

Ok I know this is my dead horse to flog on and on... But I love this shit. First off I have a major fascination with Barbarella, the 60's and 70's plastic design and the bulging, neo-baroque design of that era (with the advent of plastic those rounded lines and white+bright color ideals got really big, fast, in industrial design) as well as Mirrors Edge style design.

I want to create a Plasma Theme that's sort of like this.... sooo much... Looking sternly at the Gaia theme right now___Other than the colour scheme, this is one gorgeous bike.

Traffic-stops in a sane country.
#blacklivesmatter  

Estonian police has fired two policemen after reviewing their interaction with a traffic infringement suspect, recorded by that suspect (who didn't tell the police about recording them).

The cops' offence?  They called the suspect nasty names.  It seems that they were even provoked by the suspect swearing at them first.

Might be a bit harsher than necessary, but it's a better approximation of a reasonable state of affairs than policemen routinely killing random people at traffic stops and getting away with it.___Traffic-stops in a sane country.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) was once considered an ally in the fight for gay rights and destigmatization of those living with HIV and AIDS. At some point, however, that mission changed. Today, AHF's founder and president, Michael Weinstein, is one of the biggest opponents of HIV preexposure prophylaxis, or PrEp -- a pill that has been found to dramatically reduce the risk of contracting HIV in men (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/07/truvada-gay-men-hiv_n_5102515.html). Some who believe that this position hurts the gay community have questioned AHF's relationship with condom companies as a motivating force.

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) was once considered an ally in the fight for gay rights and destigmatization of those living with HIV and AIDS. At some point, however, that mission changed. Today, AHF's founder and president, Michael Weinstein, is one of the biggest opponents of HIV preexposure prophylaxis, or PrEp -- a pill that has been found to dramatically reduce the risk of contracting HIV in men (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/07/truvada-gay-men-hiv_n_5102515.html). Some who believe that this position hurts the gay community have questioned AHF's relationship with condom companies as a motivating force. 

Indeed, for the past ten years, AHF has been fighting to mandate condom use in the porn industry. In 2009, they attempted to induce legislation to require condoms in straight porn productions. (L.A.'s Porn Valley, as the seat of porn production is called, is divided into the gay side, which uses condoms, and the straight side, which relies instead on testing every two weeks). That early effort didn't go anywhere, so five years ago, AHF tied to sue L.A. County to force the health department to mandate condoms (http://www.laweekly.com/news/rubbers-revolutionary-aids-healthcare-foundations-michael-weinstein-2163506). The lawsuit failed, so they introduced a ballot initiative to require condom use. 

In California, voters can pass laws they write or suspend a statute by collecting enough petition signatures to place their initiatives on the ballot. Voters can also initiate constitutional amendments this way. This is how the discriminatory Proposition 8, which required a marriage to occur between a man and a woman in order for it to be valid in California, came into being. Before it was voided by federal courts, Pop 8 got on a ballot, was voted in, and created a new amendment to the California Constitution. AHF just needed signatures -- and a little ammunition. 

Ammunition came in 2010, when the Adult Industry Medical Foundation (AIM) -- the primary testing facility used by porn performers -- was breached and performers' personal information was released online. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation used the incident to destroy the sex worker-founded organization, participating in a privacy lawsuit that eventually forced the testing facility to declare bankruptcy (http://www.laweekly.com/news/porn-clinic-aim-closes-for-good-valley-based-industry-scrambles-to-find-new-std-testing-system-2398023) and enabled AHF to score an unprecedented amount of press. The porn industry recovered relatively quickly, turning to other existing facilities for their testing. But the battle had only just begun.

In 2012, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation dropped over $1.5 million into a campaign to pass Measure B, which would mandate condom use in Los Angeles County. As a result of a successful campaign that completely ignored the concerns of performers -- who worry that condoms are not tested for efficacy in sexual situations lasting more than a few minutes and that their use for extended periods on set causes pain and is not better than rigorous testing -- Measure B passed with 56.96 percent of votes. Not satisfied by the slim margin, AHF went after the adult industry's trade organization and lobbying arm, the Free Speech Coalition, claiming they had used illegal foreign funds to run their ballot opposition campaign. 

The result of the measure's passing was an exodus by the adult industry to Las Vegas (where in 2013 AHF filed a formal complaint against Nevada's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, for failing to require California-based companies to use condoms during shoots), as well as a lawsuit against L.A. County that is still ongoing, with AHF defending Measure B, since the county is not interested in enforcing or defending it (something that in California has become a sort of informal veto). And just as it happened with Proposition 8, it is not altogether clear whether AHF has standing to defend the measure, but they're not giving up the fight. Last week, they subpoenaed past and present porn performers' medical records from the facilities that conduct testing, a gross invasion of privacy that illustrates how opportunistic their participation in the suit against AIM was.

It's possible, however, that AHF has grown tired of picking up the slack in a county that doesn't like how much it's costing to enforce this measure and how little it seems to be saving them in terms of healthcare costs associated with the rampant STI and HIV infections that AHF promised this would address. Which leads us to this article, which explains a new ballot initiative the nonprofit is pushing, which would not only mandate condom use in porn statewide, but enable California residents to sue adult film producers for creating porn without condoms. 

Anyone found in violation of the condom law, according to the text of the initiative, is “liable via… a civil action” brought by the California OSHA (Cal/OSHA), a prosecutor, a performer or "an individual residing in the State of California." The only limitation placed on these citizen lawsuits is that a request must first be filed with Cal/OSHA to investigate -- but if the department declines or doesn’t respond within 21 days, or if the case isn't pursued within 45 days, it's open for citizens to proceed. And if Cal/OSHA pursues the tip but fails to followthrough it, or if the case gets dismissed, a citizen may also proceed.

The porn industry has claimed for some time now that Michael Weinstein was out to destroy them. It's finally become obvious to bystanders that this is no exaggeration. ___
