"Men of genius do not excel in any profession because they labor in it, but they labor in it because they excel." - William Hazlitt

A virus that kills cancer: the cure that's waiting in the coldc - "Swedishly uninterested in profiteering, devoted only to the purity of science, Magnus and his co-workers on this virus have already published the details of their experiments in leading journals around the world, which means that the modified virus as it stands can no longer be patented. And without a patent to make the virus commercial, no one will invest"

What Women Want: Porn and the Frontier of Female Sexuality - "Deen has carved out a niche in the porn industry by looking like the one guy who doesn’t belong there. Scroll through L.A.’s top porn agency sites and you’ll find hundreds of pouty women ready to drop to their knees, but just a few dozen men available to have sex with them. These guys all have a familiar look—neck chains, frosted tips, unreasonable biceps, tribal tattoos. Deen looks like he was plucked from a particularly intellectual frat house... “My problem is I never really had anything I wanted to do in life other than porn. I’ve never really had a hobby. I never really had any ambition,” Deen says. “I was in kindergarten or something and I saw porn for the first time, and I said, ‘This is what I want to do. I want to grow up and be in porn.”... Deen is not supposed to be the star of his scenes—his sex partners are. But on Tumblr, a network of teenage bloggers has emerged to turn the focus on him. The young women trade Deen videos, post candid photographs, and pluck out all the minute details that turn them on: the way he looks at a woman, touches her, stares into her eyes, whispers in her ear... “I don’t know a single woman that watches any of these porn-for-women Playgirl type of things,” Deen says. Most women? “They want to see porno. They’re watching what they want to watch, regardless of what’s marketed toward them”"

Overcoming Shame - "for me – I still held back on orgasms. I would start to come, and my instinct would be ‘hold it back, hold it back…it will get on the sheets…mom will see it.” In fact, to this day, whenever I go home to visit my mom, she reminds me of how I ruined her sheets (and she still has them) by masturbating and staining them... I had been holding back, but as he was in me and talking to me and telling me how much he loved me and how warm and wonderful I felt, and as he started describing my cum in such wonderful ways, I suddenly let loose and came. I couldn’t believe the feeling of just laying there and coming, and knowing it was ok. I had tears in my eyes as I realized that it was ok to feel this way, and it was ok to come even if it meant the sheets needed cleaning, or I was messy... I now tend to reach a point where I can finally let go and enjoy that release and not worry about the cleanup or what my husband (or anyone else) thinks. The shame has gone, and has been replaced by utter joy"

Death by PowerPoint? Not if Cebu Pacific has any say

I'm a Porn Star, and if You Harass Me I Will Punch You in the Balls - "in a room of pornography fans, who have actually seen me with a dick in my mouth and who can buy a replica of my vagina in a can or box, I am treated with far more respect than I am walking down the street."
The racist, sexist heterophobia in the comments is sick: "Straight white men are a plague on the planet."
Also I'm amused at how many women say in the comments that this has never happened to them
"As a man, I have FAR more to fear walking down the street than a woman does: for every category of violent crime except rape, men outnumber women as victims in the BJS stats and case clearance rates are lower for male victims, too. Rape is the exception because until this year, the FBI and BJS didn't consider it possible for a man to be raped"

What Happens To Old And Expired Supermarket Foods - "“Foods can remain safe to consume for some time beyond sell-by and even use-by dates provided they are handled and stored properly,” says Dr Ted Labuza, professor of food science at the University of Minnesota. For fresh produce and refrigerated foods this means storage at below 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Canned foods and shelf-stable goods like salad dressings, Labuza adds, can be consumed for years beyond their expiration dates. While their quality might suffer, for example emulsified dressings may split, they will not pose a safety hazard unless contaminated. Apart from baby formula and certain types of baby foods, product dating is not even required by federal regulations... “We put enough preservatives in our food to embalm an elephant,” the manufacturer confessed"

Empathic rats spring each other from jail - "De Waal suggests that the rats’ behaviour is the result of ancient neural circuits that allow mammals to “make the situation of others their own to some degree, thus offering them an emotional stake in it.” These circuits underlie the behaviour of apes, dolphins, elephants, rats, and probably more. De Waal thinks that they originated from the care that mammal mothers offered towards their young, which might explain why female rats (like female chimps and female humans) seem to be more empathic than male ones. In Bartal’s experiment, all the female rats opened doors for a trapped individual, compared to just three-quarters of the males."

In Jerusalem, women are voiceless at a decidedly womanly event - The Globe and Mail - "The controversial exclusion of women from various settings in Israel because of pressure from ultra-Orthodox Jewish leaders reached a new level this week with a major conference on gynecological advances that is permitting only males to address the audience."

The Burger Lab: How to Make Perfect Thin and Crisp French Fries - "The first thing I noticed was the surface texture of the fries. They seemed smooth, but on closer inspection, I noticed that they were dotted with tiny tiny bubbles, indicating that they had definitely been fried at least once prior to arriving at the store. I measured them with calipers and found that they were precisely 1/4 of an inch thick. A good size for optimizing crust to interior ratio."
