A sex-positive duo’s podcast is exploding in popularity as more and more women are challenging the culture of “slut shaming” in the United States. In an interview with the Huffington Post’s Emma Gray, Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson opened a window into the duo’s thinking about sex and their podcast.
In December, Hutchinson and Fisher launched ” Guys We Fucked, The Anti Slut-Shaming Podcast.” Episodes feature the hosts talking about their sex lives. “We’re saying, have a lot of sex and be proud of it,” Hutchinson said in their debut episode.
The podcast goes against the dominant grain in U.S. culture, where any women who deviates from what is seen as a “normal” sex life gets called a slut.
America, under President Barack Hussein Obama, is no longer a formidable economic, military, or political world power. This president seems to be out of touch with reality as he strives to transform the United States into a second rate country. His weakness and inexperience as a world leader invite aggression and ridicule.
The Crimea is occupied by Russia. Syria is a killing field. Iran has not given up its quest for nuclear weapons. North Korea continues its bombastic threats. Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, thumbs his nose at this president. Obama retreated from Iraq after much American blood was shed and billions of……
blah blah blah blah
Too many people on the left cannot see the forest for the trees. Talk about being “stuck on stupid!” America has been hijacked by leftists, and Obama has America in retreat.
This nation has murdered nearly 60 million babies in the womb, and the leftists see nothing wrong. Our liberal society has diminished the traditional family and condoned abnormal sexual appetites by allowing same-sex marriage…….

1988 marked an incredible sixth successive cup final for the pioneering women’s football club.
They were the cup holders and had no intention of letting their prestigious piece of silverware slip from their grasp.
Travelling to Crewe with a side boasting the talismanic Gill Coultard, prolific marksman Kaz Walker and inspirational leader Sheila, nerves were put to one side for 90 minutes as they focused only on thing - to be crowned cup champions for the second successive season.
There was no way the team wanted to experience that same feeling of being second best like in 1984, 1985 and 1986 where they watched Howbury Grange, Friends of Fulham and Norwich all lift the FA Women’s Cup respectively.
In 1988, they certainly weren’t second best.
An amazing story has come out of India of an elephant which was on a rampage through an Indian village. Reportedly the elephant virtually destroyed a house, but then heard a baby crying. The male elephant then did a complete about face and rescued the baby from the rubble.
The tale was told to The Times of India by the parents of the baby, Dipak Mahato and his wife Lalita. They say the elephant attacked their home in a village in the West Bengal district of Purulia.
“What’s really surprising is that this elephant left the little girl alive even after damaging the house. It seems to have a heart, too,” he added, saying that the elephant was last seen resting in Ghoshra forest on Tuesday evening.
BURLINGAME, Calif., March 16 (Reuters) - California Republicans wrapped up their annual state convention on Sunday with a roar of approval for a charismatic Tea Party-backed candidate seeking to unseat popular Democratic Governor Jerry Brown as he vies for an unprecedented fourth term.
Tim Donnelly, a Southern California state assemblyman who made his name as a leader for the anti-illegal immigration Minutemen Project, brought the crowd of several hundred party activists to its feet in a speech that slammed Brown, warned of government tyranny and criticized recent efforts in the state to allow transgender children to use school restrooms in accordance with their gender identities.
“I want my state back,” said Donnelly, a businessman who represents the conservative desert area east of Los Angeles. He blamed government regulation for driving customers away from a plastics business that he founded. “I want my freedom back.”
About 1,000 delegates and guests attended the weekend convention in Burlingame, about 15 miles south of San Francisco. Speakers included former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus who urged members to strike a more inclusive tone as the party struggles to rebuild in a state where it once dominated.
“We ought to frack our way to prosperity and drill our way to prosperity, rather than sitting on an ocean of oil and importing it from our enemies,” he said to wild applause.
On his first day in office, Donnelly said, he would declare a moratorium on all laws that would restrict freedom, businesses or the constitutional rights of Californians.
He also likes to try to smuggle handguns onto airplanes. There is a saner GOP candidate in the mix, but he’s already dead to this crowd.
The Niagara River corridor from Lake Erie to Lake Ontario is renowned as a spectacular winter haven for hundreds of thousands of water birds. But this year’s bitterly cold season has made it notable for something else: dead ducks.
Biologists say carcasses began piling up by the hundreds in early January after the plunging temperatures started icing over nearly the entire Great Lakes, preventing the ducks from getting to the minnows that are their main source of food. Necropsies on dozens of birds have confirmed the cause: starvation.
“All have empty stomachs. They’re half the weight they should be,” said Connie Adams, a biologist in the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s Buffalo office who has personally seen 950 dead birds.
“This is unprecedented. Biologists who’ve worked here for 35 years have never seen anything like this,” she said. “We’ve seen a decline in tens of thousands in our weekly waterfowl counts.”
Most of the dead ducks seen in the upstate New York are red-breasted mergansers, which breed in northern Canada and Alaska and come south for the winter to the Great Lakes region. In most years, there are periods of freezing and thawing, providing enough breaks in the ice for them to dive for minnows.
This month The Sun newspaper started a new campaign that attempted to set Page 3 up as a supporter of breast cancer charities. This involved a front page featuring a topless model, with a commentary of how to check breasts for potentially cancerous lumps and suggestions of what to name your breasts. If this sounds ridiculous, that’s because it is. The Sun is making a last ditch attempt to gather support for page 3 by pitting it directly against breast cancer. The message couldn’t be clearer, either you support page 3 or you support breast cancer.
Reactions to this appalling publicity stunt have ranged from laughter, to shock, to full-blown range, to pain. Some have written about their own experiences of breast cancer and the devastating effects it has had on their bodies, their minds and their families, and expressed their anger and sadness at The Sun’s exploitation of their pain. Breast cancer is not about giggling and groping your cleavage whilst wearing lacy knickers, it is about mastectomy scars, chemotherapy and finding the strength and courage to keep fighting. The Independent said the campaign was ‘sick, even by The Sun’s standards’, whilst the New Statesman emphasised that readers were being asked to pick a side: page 3 or breast cancer.
Then something wonderful happened. The No More Page 3 campaign, which had steadily been gaining support through signatures on an online petition for over a year, experienced a sudden surge in popularity and acquired over 13,000 signatures in less than 24 hours. Less than two weeks later, 35,000 more signatures have been added. Now, either it was an incredible coincidence that all of these people simultaneously realised that breasts were not news, or they were disgusted by The Sun’s apparent attempt at philanthropy and decided that enough was enough. I hate to make assumptions, but I’m going to throw caution to the wind and suggest that it was the latter of these.
A small fire broke out in an apartment at the Merwede square in South Amsterdam. Normally this would not create headlines weren’t it that this was the last address where Anne Frank lived before she and her family were forced into hiding by the Nazi regime. According to the fire deparment the fire started in furniture in the living room.
The occupant of the apartment was not at home. A neighbour tried to extinguish the fire but had to be hospitalized due to inhaling smoke. Thanks to him the damage to the building was limited.
A few years back some film footage surfaced which contained the only moving images of Anne Frank. She was leaning out of the window

In 2013, the East Timorese government found that their cabinet rooms had been bugged by the Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS). The incident itself had happened nine years previously.
Things got rather spicier when the domestic Australian intelligence service, ASIO, raided the office and house of lawyer Bernard Collaery, a lawyer acting for the East Timorese government. The documents seized ostensibly related to spying allegations concerning the $40 billion oil and gas treaty between the countries. The distinguished international lawyer Sir Eli Lauterpacht was beside himself, calling them “unprecedented, improper and inexplicable.” The incident landed Australia before the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
These revelations have been getting some coverage, though not enough. They got the East Timorese into a considerable state. East Timor’s foreign minister, Alfredo Pires, was adamant that sovereignty had been breached by the bargy impudence of the Australian services. Moves were then commenced to engage an arbitration process to have the Timor Sea Treaty invalidated. But the goggles of paternalism remain strong - former Australian foreign minister Senator Bob Carr spoke about the fictitious friendship that governs relationships of abuse. The bully thinks of being loved, even as the bullying is being inflicted. The victim is also expected to tag along.
The ASIO raids were deemed entirely appropriate by Canberra for matters of “national security”, and a ridiculous undertaking was given that the information seized by the agency will not be communicated to anyone other than for purposes of national security till the International Court of Justice makes an order.

The federal government does not require state and local law enforcement agencies to report on the number of untested rape kits in their facilities. As a result, there is no comprehensive, national data on the nature and scope of the rape kit backlog.
Despite this lack of a reporting requirement, federal lawmakers have put forth several promising reforms, and various federal laws have helped to encourage rape kit testing at the state and local levels.
