Debunking the myth that porn is harmless

first_imgMercatorNet 9 October 2013  Whenever I’ve mentioned to an acquaintance that I am completely against pornography, it tends to trigger a flood of defensive arguments. One of the most common of these is that fact that watching porn doesn’t hurt anyone.Wrong – and I can’t stress enough just how wrong.  But luckily I just read a really good article by Verily Magazine which shows us exactly how pornography impacts us all: the men who watch it, the women in relationships with the men who watch it, and the relationships of the couples overall.Let’s start with what the article had to say about men.It definitely brought up the question of “why?” Men of every status, whether in committed relationships or completely single, all seem to be keen their porn time. Why? It comes down to the fact that men just aren’t fulfilled in their sexual relationships anymore – because their porn intake provides them with a greater hit than they can find in real life, probably due to its unrealistic and dangerously exciting shock value.How else does pornography impact a man? Well, it’s an addiction.  The term is used a lot so I googled it for better clarity: one definition said that addiction is the “state of being enslaved to a habit or practice…to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.” Scary much? Let’s break it down: porn becomes an obsession, something that they can’t live without, a compulsion. It changes their lives, and not for the better.The Verily article also made another great point: when the imitation of a thing becomes more desirable than the thing itself, you know something is not quite right. How unnatural it is for a man to be dependent on computer images for sexual gratification! Porn is exciting rather than satisfying – meaning men are never happy, yet always on the search for the next excitement. And this is what will eventually lead them away from healthy relationships and into strip clubs and brothels.http://www.mercatornet.com/family_edge/view/12900last_img read more

‘Premature’ to postpone Tokyo Olympics, says IOC chief

Loading… International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said it would be “premature” to postpone the Tokyo Games Thursday but admitted the body was “considering different scenarios” as the coronavirus pandemic advances.International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said any decision on Tokyo would be based on expert adviceThe IOC will act on advice from its own taskforce and the World Health Organization, Bach told the New York Times, after a week when the IOC has weathered criticism over its response to the crisis.But he remained optimistic about holding the Tokyo Olympics on schedule from July 24 to August 9, and said there was no question of cancelling the Games altogether.“Of course we are considering different scenarios, but we are contrary to many other sports organizations or professional leagues in that we are four-and-a-half months away from the Games,” Bach said.“For us, (postponement) would not be responsible now and it would be premature to start speculation or make a decision at a time when we do not have any recommendation from the task force,” he added.Speculation has been growing over the Games, scheduled to start on July 24, after the COVID-19 outbreak closed sports competitions around the world, and paralysed many countries along with international travel.Olympic qualifiers are among the tournaments affected, with 43 percent of athletes yet to book their spots. But Bach said the situation was still too uncertain to make a decision about Tokyo.“What makes this crisis so unique and so difficult to overcome is the uncertainty. Nobody today can tell you what the developments are tomorrow, what they are in one month, not to mention in more than four months,” he said.“Therefore it would not be responsible in any way to set a date or take a decision right now, which would be based on the speculation about the future developments.”Athletes lashed out at IOC advice this week to continue training “as best they can”, with Olympic pole vault champion Katerina Stefanidi accusing the body of “putting us in danger”.But Bach said health considerations were “first and foremost”, adding “the decision of the IOC will not be determined by any financial interest”.

UPDATE: Oak threat in Indiana expands statewide

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) confirmed more than 70 Walmart stores and 18 Rural King stores in the state have received rhododendron plants infected with sudden oak death (SOD), a fungal pathogen that kills oak trees. Shipments containing infested material were sent to nine other states as well.Workers from the Department of Entomology & Plant Pathology have been visiting stores across Indiana to destroy any stock that has been found infested and quarantine any stock that is symptomatic. The division has made this its top priority.The DNR has destroyed approximately 1,500 infested rhododendron so far and pulled another 1,500 from stores. The DNR has also ordered these stores to stop selling rhododendron until further notice. Any quarantined material not infected will be released following testing at Purdue University.The DNR is also following up with homeowners that have called in to say they’ve purchased material that they believe is infested or are seeing signs/ symptoms of sick trees in the environment.SOD has killed large tracts of oaks on the West Coast. SOD has not been established in the Midwest, to date. SOD can kill standing oak trees, which could happen if SOD-positive rhododendron were planted within about 6 feet of a standing oak.SOD travels in more than a hundred species of host plant material. It causes some browning of the leaves in the host but does not kill it. For a list of those plants click here.If you have purchased rhododendrons in the last four weeks from Walmart or Rural King, destroy them, or call 1-866-NO-EXOTIC (663-9684) or the local county extension office at 1-888-EXT-INFO (1-888-398-4636) for instructions.This is an ongoing investigation, and guidance could change as more information is gathered.To learn more about SOD click here.last_img read more

Neville: Only best can replace Rooney

first_imgGary Neville believes the only way Manchester United can afford to let Wayne Rooney move to Barclays Premier League rivals Chelsea is if they bring in someone of the calibre of Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo to replace him. Press Association Rooney trained with United’s reserve team on Thursday morning – but the move came at the striker’s own request. Rooney, who was named by Roy Hodgson in his England squad to face Scotland next Wednesday, is yet to play a competitive game during United’s pre-season programme. And as he will also miss Rio Ferdinand’s testimonial against Seville on Friday, he was keen to get a more strenuous workout than the light session planned for Moyes’ first team, Press Association Sport understands. It explains why Rooney was with the reserves, which has been latched on to by some as further evidence of a worsening relationship with the Old Trafford club. However in this instance, that is thought not to be the case with the player himself keen to underline the development was at his request, which could yet assist him in appearing against Scotland. United have rejected two bids from Chelsea for Rooney this summer after former manager Sir Alex Ferguson last season claimed the striker wanted to leave. Former United defender Neville feels Rooney would be a huge loss if he left Old Trafford and is adamant the 27-year-old cannot be sold to Jose Mourinho’s side – unless David Moyes has a superstar signing lined up to bring in. He told Sky Sports News: “Manchester United can’t sell Wayne Rooney to Chelsea football club, unless they bring in a major major signing. “You’ve got here absolute gold in Wayne Rooney. You’re talking about someone who is proven over six, seven, eight years, to deliver season in, season out. “Wayne Rooney in this moment in time, from what I know, he’ll never drop his standards in training, he’ll work his absolute backside off and that’s important to know. However, there is something brewing behind the scenes, you can see that. “Chelsea have made bids for him but Manchester United can’t sell him to Chelsea, unless they go and sign (the likes of) Bale and Ronaldo and you think ‘okay we can potentially sacrifice someboby’, but the importance of Wayne Rooney at Manchester United is absolutely vital.” He added of the 83-times capped England forward: “He’s a champion player, somebody who in the middle of October when you’re four points behind in the league and going to Chelsea, and you’ve got Arsenal the Saturday after, he’s the guy who wins you the league. “He gets up the pitch and back, sets up goals, the one who literally will be the one who will take you towards that championship, the one who will dig in. “Don’t underestimate the value and importance of Wayne Rooney to Manchester United’s success in the last seven or eight years. “Manchester United don’t need to sell him in terms of the money. But if they do they have to bring in decent replacements because it’ll hard to replace him.” last_img read more
