Mom Cries 1,000 Tears Watching Autistic Son Falling in Love With Snow White at Disney

ShareTweetPinterest When Amanda Coley took a trip to Disney with her son Jackson, affectionately known as “Jack Jack,” she witnessed nothing short of magical. Her nonverbal 2-year-old with a high-functioning form of autism is normally incredibly fearful of strangers and rarely interacts with anybody outside of his own family. “It varies from fearful to shy,” said Coley. “With some people, he will cry or other people he will back away from and ignore. Children his age he ignores. He likes to watch them play, but he will not interact with them.” When his older brother took him to meet the characters at Disney, Jack Jack would quickly shy away. “They would pull him in for a quick hug and he’d pull away,” said Coley. …

7 Fabulously Sexy Ways to Nurture Sexual Intimacy in Marriage

ShareTweetPinterest By Rhonda Stalb Have you ever had trouble achieving sexual intimacy with your spouse? I’ve been carrying around a secret struggle for a while. It’s been happening in my marriage more than I care to admit. This hurts because there are times when our body parts don’t respond to stimulation. And with that, comes rejection and shame. Then we argue because rejection and shame are two major triggers for me, and my husband is extremely frustrated with the whole mess. Which causes us to want to throw up our hands and give up on sex, but we can’t do that! Plus, the issue drives us both mad because…here we are…a married couple working hard together to do the right …

Tunisia bans full-face coverings in public institutions after twin bombings

(CNN)Tunisia has banned people from wearing the niqab — a full-face veil — in public institutions, citing security concerns. There have been reports that terrorists have been using niqab to disguise themselves, TAP said. The niqab and hijab, or headscarf, were banned under secular governments until the ouster of longtime President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s regime in 2011, Reuters reports.

Scientists Solve Mystery Of Why Its Snowing Salt In The Dead Sea

For decades, it’s been “snowing” salt in the deepest parts of the Dead Sea, a phenomenon that has stumped researchers studying one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water. Researchers with the American Geophysics Union now believe they know how this process takes place, lending a deeper understanding to how salt builds up in the Earth’s crust. Since the 1970s, freshwater diversion from waterways feeding into the Dead Sea – a salt lake bordering Jordan and Israel – has lowered the water level of the Dead Sea, which in turns makes the water saltier. For years, researchers have observed salt layers that form along the top layer of the water that snow down to pile up along the lakebed at a rate …

Antarctica’s Sea Ice Is Decreasing For The First Time In 40 Years Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Worry

For decades, the sea ice surrounding Antarctica has been increasing. Now, an analysis of satellite data led by NASA finds that the continent is experiencing a “precipitous decline” bringing total sea ice extent to the lowest it has been in 40 years, wiping out 35 years of overall ice increases in just a few years. The space agency has been tracking changes in Antarctica’s sea ice since the late 1970s, recording three decades of gradual, albeit uneven, increases in sea ice coverage that reached a high in 2014. These increases were puzzling scientists, particularly in the face of climate change, with explanations ranging from connections with the ozone hole to El Niño trends and basal meltwater from ice shelves – …

The Field Trip From Hell: The Handmaids Tale Recap Betches

Blessed be the fruit! This week on the Handmaid’s Tale, the Waterfords take June on a field trip to Washington D.C., which is now the scariest place on Earth apart from the inside of Fred Waterford’s mind. Fab. We open on a group of Marthas who are all praying for Nichole as a result of Mr. Waterford’s extended prayer/PR campaign. It’s this campaign that has gotten the Waterfords invited to D.C., where Mr. Waterford will be hosting a national prayer-a-thon. June also has to come because they need to present an image of a perfect Gilead family—man, woman, and sex slave. Just as the Lord intended. June takes the Amtrak down to D.C. with Aunt Lydia (I’m assuming they sat …

SoftBank Vision Fund partner David Thevenon is coming to Disrupt Berlin

SoftBank Vision Fund has single-handedly changed the game when it comes to tech startup investment. And that’s why I’m excited to announce that SoftBank Vision Fund partner David Thevenon is joining us at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin.

Remains found in suitcase in 2016 finally ID’d using new technology, police say

From the left: A released photo of Jessica Ashley Manchini, who police identified as the woman whose remains were found stuffed in a suitcase along a Georgia highway three years ago. Police released a forensic illustration in 2016 of what the woman might have looked like based on the remains.  According to authorities, the new technology revealed a partial name and a Pennsylvania address on the suitcase. Manchini’s identity was then confirmed using dental and medical records. Detectives initially used a lighting test to try to lift writing from the faded blue ink on the tag in 2016 but were unsuccessful. Police released a forensic sketch of what the woman was believed to look like as well as an image of …

How wealthy are you?

What is our wealth made up of? The country’s wealth boom has been driven mainly by rising house prices and pension entitlements, combined with rising home ownership in the 1980s and 1990s. People often think of wealth as being held in property and, to an extent, they are correct – at £4.6tn, it represents 36% of total wealth. What does it take to be wealthy? How much wealth do you need to be in the wealthiest part of the population? To do this, we break the adult population down into families, and then sort them into 10 equally sized groups – or deciles – based on their wealth. In 2018-19, you needed wealth of around £670,000 per adult – excluding …

Gravity And Maybe Even Life Could Work In A Two-Dimensional Universe

Scientists have battled for a long time with a niggling philosophical concept known as the anthropic principle. The gist of it is that humans shouldn’t consider themselves special; despite the laws of physics appearing to be favorable to intelligent life like us, there must be other reasons for its emergence. A particularly fascinating application has to do with gravity and space-time. We live in a pretty good continuum with three spatial dimensions and a time dimension, but is this 3+1 configuration the only possibility for life? Having more than one dimension of time throws predictability out the window and more dimensions of space make orbits unstable, meaning the existence of the solar system is impossible. The argument for less than three dimensions is …

Democrats Take Trump Tax Return Fight To Court

Congressional Democrats are suing the Trump administration over its refusal to hand over copies of the president’s personal The suit over President Congress and Trump, who has vowed to fight “all the subpoenas” looking into his administration and personal finances. Trump is the first modern president not to voluntarily disclose his tax returns.  These rulings, now on appeal, were embarrassing defeats for the president and contain arguments that will likely be restated in the tax return case. That’s because the Treasury Department made the same legal argument to deny the committee the president’s tax returns as Trump’s personal lawyers made in the Mazars and Deutsche Bank cases ― that the requesting congressional committee has no legitimate legislative interest in pursuing …

I caught trains across Europe to impress a hot man and to try to save the world | Brigid Delaney

Sure I could get to Rome in an hour, but what about the journey? Last year I met a real hot babe while swimming in a bay off a Greek island. Drying off, we got to talking, then walking along the cliff, before finding somewhere nice to sit down for a drink. It was golden hour, the sun was going down over the sea, and all was right in the world. Then we started arguing about climate change. I told him about my trip so far, and he thought it was DISGUSTING the amount of flying I did. He had arrived in Greece by train and boat. But that would take six weeks from Australia! I protested. Nonetheless, I decided …
