Or avoiding another mass extinction event
The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to represent how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.
The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight on their scale.
In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the

A formula for happy babies
Baby massage has long been a part of the Ayurvedic tradition of India and today its usefulness is catching on in the west. Mothers are discovering that by rubbing their children from birth keeps them more contented, better socialised and less inclined to act up.
When babies are unusually or unreasonably temperamental, when they cry for no apparent reason or they wake up crying, it’s hard to know exactly what’s wrong with them. It could be colic, it could be wind or a whole host of other things.
But the improved mother baby bonding that is achieved through regular massage can give mothers a deeper perception into their child’s condition and the massage also

Anal Sex – Shall I or Shan’t I?
Hi Dianna, I’ve recently started allowing my boyfriend have anal sex with me and one once he actually gets inside me, after the initial discomfort while is not exactly unpleasant, it’s not exactly great either so what’s the big deal and should I continue?
Thanks for writing Veronica, for some people anal sex is a really big thing and for others it’s not. You need plenty of lube and in terms of penetration, it’s somehow contrary to nature and takes a little practice to relax those sphincter muscles and sometimes the urge to push out.
For most women, this form of sex is something they ‘allow’ rather than enjoy as there are

A key to sustainability and owning your own home
Access to shelter is a fundamental human right that has been taken form a large percentage of the population. In this modern world, human rights are written into public charters, yet the corporatism of local and national governments has nullified these rights.
Cooperative housing like any other protest must be done peaceably within the context of local laws as by any other means, the adventure will fail. One system that worked was for some of the Vietnamese escaping the Vietnam war. They landed on Australian beaches and were taken in as refugees, the Australian government gave them money, food and shelter. The people pooled their money and bought a house, several

So I am Single. I have been dating since high school and have had a few boyfriends but nothing healthy or long lasting. I have had my heartbroken and honestly, can’t remember breaking any myself.

Rub that pain away
From the onset of puberty, the woman’s mistress cycle presents a series of challenges. She needs to maintain a dietary program that contains the nutrients to replace the losses sustained during her period. She also needs to maintain a fitness program so that her reproductive system has the freedom to function as it should.
We live in an age of decay and very few women are blessed with perfectly healthy bodies, although in the thrall of youth, it is very easy to feel indestructible and totally in command of life even when you are not.
Heavy, a regular and painful periods are symptomatic that not only reproductive health is an issue, it’s also a symptom of

A conversation recorded
My sister Ciara and her friend Sandy were a little bored as they sat watching the rain running down the windows. I’d just stacked fire and I think they’d forgotten I was still there doing some homework, but it was hard not to hear what they were saying and this is some of their conversation.
Sandy: what is it about men Ciara? You know I quite like Alfie, in many ways he’s really nice and I feel strongly attracted to him but he’s really useless at sex.
Ciara: unfortunately I kinda know what you mean because most of the boys I’ve been with just please themselves and sometimes I just can’t be bothered having sex because I’m

And it’s impact on civilisation
It’s a well established fact that alcohol dulls the senses and over a long-term period destroys brain tissue. Yet we are sensory beings and we rely on our senses to perceive the world around us as well as to make sense of that world. Therefore alcohol in effect is destroying sensitivity to life; in other words, making drinkers stupid.
Civilisation is a recognition that one belongs to a collective. So if we look at ants, each colony is a unique civilisation in a similar way to us. As human beings we all share common traits, but our sense of civilisation depends on our language and upbringing.
When we look at human civilisation, in the West

And the art of looking good
Stretch when waking from sleep
If you’re not totally happy with your skin and want to maintain not only the health of your skin, but also have a healthy life, what’s good for your skin is good for your entire body and life. Grandparents were not always right about everything, but if they said to eat your greens, stand tall with your shoulders back and always look on the bright side of life, they were absolutely right no matter how boring that seems.
These days there are so many pills and potions promising outrageous perfection, but since there is no law about lying, many people end up purchasing so many rubbish skincare products.
