Man, 64, given penis from dead body in organ transplant after losing genitals to cancer Anonymous 05/17/2016 (Tue) 00:51:51 [Preview] No. 76 [Reply]
The new penis was provided by a donor and successfully attached during a 15-hour operation

A 64-year-old man has become the first in his country to undergo a successful penis transplant operation.

Thomas Manning was diagnosed with penile cancer in 2012, with doctors eventually resorting to drastic measures in order to save his life.

Following his diagnosis, Thomas, from Massachusetts, was told he would need a full penis removal.

But four years after going through the drastic surgery, Thomas has undergone a penis transplant operation - becoming the first man in the United States to do so.

In an epic 15-hour long surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital , doctors were able to attach a new penis, provided by a deceased donor, to Thomas.

Speaking about his surgery and what the future holds, bank courier Thomas said: "Today I begin a new chapter filled with personal hope and hope for others who have suffered genital injuries.

"Particularly for our service members who put their lives on the line and suffer serious damage as a result."

Before the surgery, Thomas was left with a small stump, around an inch long and had to sit down to urinate.

Google patents a protective 'flypaper' coating that will keep pedestrians on the hood after getting hit by its self-driving car Anonymous 05/20/2016 (Fri) 01:14:42 [Preview] No. 150 [Reply]
Google has come up with a way to keep pedestrians who are hit by self-driving cars off the road... and stuck to the hood.
The company has received a new patent for a protective coating on the car's hood, front bumper and front side panels that would act as flypaper, taking the pedestrian from struck to stuck.
Google explains that when pedestrians are struck by cars, injury comes not only from the initial impact with the vehicle - but from the 'secondary impact' when they hit the road or another car.
The adhesive coating Google has proposed would be covered by another 'protective coating' that would shatter from the impact of a collision, including one involving a person or animal.
That would then expose the adhesive coating, which would bond the pedestrian to the vehicle and keep them from 'bouncing off' into the street and incoming traffic.
'The adhesion of the pedestrian to the vehicle may prevent the pedestrian from bouncing off,' the patent reads.
Google received the patent on Tuesday, acknowledging that technology has not yet developed to the point where self-driving cars will be able to avoid all accidents.
The company acknowledges in the patent that two car companies have developed their own technology in an attempt to protect more pedestrians from cars.
Google notes certain Jaguar models have a deployable hood that comes up several inches in the moment of impact, softening the blow.
And certain European Volvo models has an air bag on the outside of the car, along the base of the windshield, in an effort to protect pedestrians from head injuries, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
But, Google writes in the patent, these technologies only protect pedestrians in the moment of impact.
'Existing technologies found in production vehicles does little to mitigate the secondary impact a pedestrian may experience after during a collision with a vehicle,' the patent reads.
'This secondary impact can often cause severe injuries to the pedestrian, as the road surface or other object does not exhibit any sort of compliance or cushioning as the vehicle front end might.'
Google said the new patent does not necessarily mean the flypaper hood technology is on the way, but it has joined one of many ideas in a future that would include the company's self-driving cars.
'We hold patents on a variety of ideas,' a Google spokeswoman told the paper.
'Some of those ideas later mature into real products and services, some don't.'

Justin Trudeau's elbow punctuates his least sunny day Anonymous 05/20/2016 (Fri) 12:55:54 [Preview] No. 154 [Reply]
After the bells have rung to summon members, the whips of the government and official opposition enter the House of Commons together, walk up the centre aisle along their sides, bow towards the Speaker, bow to each other and then take their seats.

It is this routine that signals to the Speaker that the House is ready to take a vote.

And it is this bit of pageantry that led the prime minister to be accused on Wednesday night of manhandling a fellow MP and elbowing another in the chest.

And so did the prime minister punctuate his least sunny day (at least so far).

On the available video, Liberal whip Andrew Leslie and Conservative whip Gord Brown can be seen beginning the walk together, but Brown is soon lost in a crowd of New Democrats. Leslie politely waits, but then proceeds.

Leslie turns and walks over to Trudeau and Liberal House leader Dominic LeBlanc and the three men look down to where Brown is located behind three New Democrats: Tom Mulcair, David Christopherson and Ruth Ellen Brosseau.

Christopherson and Mulcair have their backs to Brown and Brown can't seem to get past them, Christopherson and Mulcair unfortunately stepping into his path. (Elizabeth May would later testify that she had seen "some mischief" on the floor.)

After about 10 seconds, Trudeau gets out of his chair, strides purposefully down the aisle, puts himself between Mulcair and Christopherson and grabs Brown by the arm.

He is said to have suggested the New Democrats "get the f---" out of his way.

Venezuela’s President Threatens To Throw Factory Workers In Jail Unless They Work Harder To End The Beer Shortage Anonymous 05/17/2016 (Tue) 00:55:45 [Preview] No. 78 [Reply]
There’s nothing worse than being right on the cusp of having an A+ buzz and realizing you’re out of beer. For one, you can’t drive and get more because, surprise, you’re drunk. Also, then you have no choice but to sober up and slowly feel the hangover creep over the horizon of your brain, headache in tow. It’s horrible.

This is the situation I’m assuming has driven Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro to threaten beer factory owners and workers with imprisonment if they do not work to end the beer shortage the country is currently suffering.

>President Nicolas Maduro threatened Saturday to take over idle factories and jail their owners following a decree granting him expanded powers to act in the face of a deep economic crisis. Maduro’s remarks came as Venezuela’s opposition warned the embattled leader that if he tries to block an attempt to hold a recall referendum, society could “explode.”

>Last month the country’s largest food and beverage distributor, Empresas Polar, shut down its last operating beer plant. It says it has been unable to access hard currency to buy raw materials.

“If you obstruct the democratic way, we do not know what could happen in this country,” opposition leader Henrique Capriles said at one rally. “Venezuela is a bomb that could explode at any moment.”

>Across town, Maduro ally Jorge Rodriguez vowed there would be no recall referendum.

“They got signatures from dead people, minors and undocumented foreigners,” Rodriguez said.

>Opposition leaders deny any fraud in the signature drive.

I guess it’s true what they say about beer making the world go round? Who are the ‘they’ I’m referring to? You know…them. Regardless, I fully understand where Maduro is coming from. No beer at all? That’s definitely one of the circles of Hell. I would do anything to get my beer back. Even illegally jail a couple hundred people. I also respect the hustle from the opposing side. Presenting a petition filled with names of people who are dead or legally don’t exist? I know it’s only Monday but I think we can all comfortably call that one the powermove of the week. “Hey dad, that petition to get the beer factory back is here.” “Oh good, here’s a list of every dead person on the family plot. Write all those names down and then sign your own.” I mean, face it, Americans love beer, Venezuelans love beer, dead people love beer. Everyone loves beer because beer loves everyone back.

Hacker is selling 117 million LinkedIn emails and passwords online Anonymous 05/18/2016 (Wed) 12:09:16 [Preview] No. 114 [Reply]
A hacker is trying to sell the details of 117 million LinkedIn users online – including email addresses and passwords – according to Motherboard.
The details would be enough to break into people’s accounts – and steal information which could be used for identity theft.
The hacker – using the handle Peace – told Motherboard that the data came from the well-publicised LinkedIn breach of 2012, but that far more users were affected than previously thought.
At the time, details for 6.5 million users were posted online – but now, ‘Peace’ is trying to sell 117 million further accounts for five Bitcoins (£1579), and boasts that 90% of the passwords have been cracked.
‘Peace’ is attempting to sell the data on a darkweb market The Real Deal, Motherboard claims.
If you fear you might be affected, it’s best to change your password – not only for LinkedIn, but for any other sites you might use the same password/email combination for.

Baker and butcher team up to make luxury donuts with bone marrow Anonymous 05/17/2016 (Tue) 00:53:49 [Preview] No. 77 [Reply]
People can now satisfy their sweet tooth with a unique donut.

A baker and a butcher of New York, got together to create a chocolate flavored donut that is filled with bone marrow.

The donuts are made in collaboration between The Doughnut Project, which is located at 10 Morton Street in Manhattan, and a nearby butcher shop called Hudson & Charles.

The donuts are sold for about $5.00 each. The donuts are covered in a clementine glaze and orange-infused chocolate flakes.

While the donut appears ordinary from the outside, the filling is quite the opposite. The donut is filled with a rich chocolate cream cake that is made with roasted bone marrow.

Although it may seem like an unusual ingredient to use, the bone marrow gives the filling an ultra-smooth texture.

Melbourne University advertises female-only jobs in bid to remedy gender imbalance in maths Anonymous 05/18/2016 (Wed) 13:23:41 [Preview] No. 116 [Reply]
The University of Melbourne has taken the extraordinary step of opening up jobs to female applicants only in an attempt to a drive change in the male-dominated area of mathematic academia.

Only about a quarter of all mathematics academics in Australia are female, and the university is now advertising three positions in its School of Mathematics and Statistics for female applicants only.
It is believed to be the first time it has limited applications to women only for permanent academic positions.

The jobs, in pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics, may range in level from lecturer, to senior lecturer, to associate professor, depending on the candidate's experience.

The head of the School of Mathematics and Statistics, Professor Aleks Owczarek, said the decision had been taken to promote change.
"We clearly have an issue with attracting female applicants appropriately to our workforce," Professor Owczarek said.

"So this is an agenda to attempt to address that."

Microsoft Auto-Scheduling Windows 10 Updates Anonymous 05/15/2016 (Sun) 01:56:54 [Preview] No. 35 [Reply]
Windows 10 has been with us for a little over eight months now, which means there are only about four months remaining to get a free upgrade from an older Windows operating system. As the clock counts down, Microsoft has begun to auto-schedule PCs to upgrade to Windows 10 with or without consent from end users.

When Microsoft created Windows 10, it tied in numerous monitoring and data collection tools. The operating system is capable of gathering your search history, web usage, Windows Store usage, details of what applications you use, voice recordings, emails, geographic information and just about anything else that is on your PC. This information is gathered in part for improving Windows-based services, but it is also used for market research and advertising purposes.

Because each user on Windows 10 increases the amount of advertising information available to Microsoft, which in turn enables Microsoft to earn more revenue from selling this data, it is not surprising that Microsoft wants everyone to use its new OS. This lead to Microsoft offering Windows 10 as a free upgrade to both Windows 7 and Windows 8, as users of either OS were unlikely to want to pay for a new OS on an already relatively new PC.

Still, there were numerous users that opted to stick with their older Windows OSes, but they were still subject to annoying pop-ups trying to get you to move to Windows 10. Even after you close the pop-up, it returns after a few short hours, relentlessly probing you to upgrade.

Now, as we near the end of the free upgrade period, Microsoft’s malware-like upgrade system is becoming even more intrusive by autoscheduling upgrades to Windows 10. I noticed that the Windows 10 upgrade reminder pop-up on a Windows 7 PC was no longer asking me to upgrade; instead, it’s now informing me that it has already scheduled an update for May 17.
