DNA Test That Tells Identical Twins Apart Could Pinpoint Criminals And Determine Paternity

In 1986, DNA was used in court for the first time to acquit a 17-year-old boy accused of raping and murdering two teenage girls. Three decades later, it has allowed investigators to track down the alleged Golden State Killer. Analyzing crime scene DNA has become a vital tool in solving so many cases, but not everyone’s DNA is totally unique. When an identical twin is involved, things get complicated. Identical – aka monozygotic – twins make up just 0.3 percent of the world’s population. They develop from a shared zygote (an egg that’s been fertilized by one sperm) to form two separate, but genetically identical, embryos. This similarity makes it virtually impossible to tell which twin committed a crime, or …

Self-Driving Cars Are More Likely To Run You Over If You Are Black, Study Suggests

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took a lot of criticism in January for suggesting that algorithms could have biases. “Algorithms are still made by human beings, and those algorithms are still pegged to basic human assumptions,” she said at the annual MLK Now event. “They’re just automated assumptions. And if you don’t fix the bias, then you are just automating the bias.” Of course, she is correct. There are numerous examples of this in consumer technologies, from facial recognition tech that doesn’t recognize non-white skin tones, to cameras that tell Asian people to stop blinking, to racist soap dispensers that won’t give you soap if you’re black. – Especially alarming is when this tech is scaled up from soap dispensers and mobile phones, which brings …

How to make your cervical test more comfortable

“Ideally, you would arrange it for somewhere in the middle of your cycle or towards the end of your cycle.” Dr Kaye adds the test itself might cause some pain similar to menstrual cramps, “but that lasts maximum 30 seconds, and then it’s gone”. Wear comfortable clothes The doctor or nurse taking the test needs you to be relaxed when taking the test – so make sure you’re comfortable. “Maybe you want to wear a skirt, so that we can lift that up and you still feel more covered – as opposed to taking off leggings or jeans,” says Dr Kaye. Ask for a woman to do the test If you’re more comfortable with a female doctor or nurse doing …

My mum was an addict, this is my story

The early days Mum: I remember times when I just couldn’t face things, I couldn’t face being a parent and I would isolate myself in my bedroom. When you were little, you went to a Halloween party and you were really excited, then I got that call. I was so off my face when the school called. It was about nine o’clock and I needed to pick you up, do you remember that? Tia: Yeah, I remember that. Mum: What was that like for you? Tia: Well, it was a little bit scary because I didn’t know where you were and I wasn’t aware of anything that was going on at that point. It didn’t really seem like a big …

Many ‘still hurting’ nearly 5 months after Hurricane Michael

Drivers who have lived in the area for years second-guess themselves about whether they’re going the right way — the street signs, trees, and houses that once served as points of reference are gone. Many doctors’ offices haven’t reopened and one of the county’s two hospitals was closed, even though Bay County residents are experiencing hurricane-related health problems such as respiratory illness. Students in schools damaged by the storm have moved into other facilities, dropping enrollment by 14 percent. Bay County had about 183,000 residents before the storm, and about 7,800 people were estimated to be homeless in January. Shopping for groceries is burdensome since many retailers haven’t reopened yet. Many of those that have are selling limited goods from …

One Doctors Awkward Decision To Write His Name On His Scrub Cap Is Changing Safety In Hospitals Around The World

We get so used to our everyday lives, we rarely stop to question the simple things. After all, if they remained the same for so long, is it possible to improve them even more? Well… Yes. In an attempt to avoid confusion during surgical operations, Australian anesthetist Dr. Rob Hackett decided to wear a scrub cap with his name on: “Rob … Anaesthetist.” Image credits: PatientSafe Network in response to concerns about how easily avoidable mistakes and poor communication are contributing to rising adverse events for our patients,” Dr. Hackett told Bored Panda. “It has been adopted around the world with studies from the US and UK demonstrating how this simple idea can decrease human errors in healthcare.” At first, …

Bernie Sanders Contrasts His Modest Childhood With Trump’s Lavish Past In First 2020 Rally

His speech, on the college campus where he spent the first year of his undergraduate education, aimed to reveal a more personal side of the Vermont senator that Sanders has traditionally avoided in favor of discussing his progressive politics. In his remarks, Sanders recalled growing up in a small, rent-controlled apartment a few miles from the Brooklyn College campus with his parents and brother. His father, a Jewish immigrant from Poland, worked as a paint salesman, and the family’s finances fluctuated greatly. “That dream was never fulfilled,” he continued. “She died young while we still lived in that rent-controlled apartment.” In addition, Sanders emphasized that his father’s journey as a 17-year-old to seek a better life in the United States …

Victims of Klaus O suffered serious damage to health from ingesting mercury and lead A German man has been sentenced to life in prison for poisoning his co-workers sandwiches with mercury and other substances over several years, leaving one in a coma and two others with serious kidney damage.

The man, identified only as Klaus O in line with German privacy rules, was arrested in May after surveillance video showed him putting a suspicious powder on a colleagues sandwich at a business in the town of Schloss …

More addictive than cocaine, more fattening than bacon and its in everything you eat

Remember the big trans-fat scare of a few years back? You know, how McDonald’s was actively trying to poison us all with their anti-life French fries? “There’s trans-fat in those delicious fries! My God! Won’t somebody think of the children!” And yet nobody knew what the hell a trans-fat was. As if Mickey Dee’s would intentionally try and kill off its customers, right? Yes, but fast food is not healthy and kids and adults are getting fat because they eat it 12 times a week! Well, duh! The last time I checked, Ronald McDonald doesn’t come around to your house with a gun and force you to gnaw on fries and milk shakes. Pretty sure we have to go to …

10 Car Crash Survivors Pose Proudly For A Chilling Photo Project To Raise Awareness About Seatbelt Safety

Shocking portraits of the searing bruises that seatbelts can leave behind after a crash are being celebrated as survival badges of honor, and showing the importance of belting up. The initiative is part of an NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) campaign to reduce the number of deaths on NZ roads. According to them, 90 people die each year because they weren’t wearing their seatbelt, most of whom are young men in rural areas. The confronting portraits are of 10 real-life crash survivors, whose post-crash injuries were recreated by the SFX make-up company PROFX.

Snapchat celebrates Black History Month with virtual museum

Image: Mashable Composite/Dr. Bronner’s Whether it’s Lil Debbie shilling out relationship advice or Sunny D igniting a conversation about depression, contemporary brand Twitter can be a depressing and dark place.  Nothing feels more cynical than when a brand appropriates the standardized millennial voice — ironic, detached, dejected — and uses it to hock their emulsified meat products and drinkable corn syrups. There’s no commitment to justice here, there’s just marketing. So I’d love to call for a mass ban of corporations from Twitter, with one exception: Dr. Bronner’s, one of the country’s most popular organic, fair trade soap producers. I don’t trust any multimillion dollar corporation on Twitter. I do, however, place a reasonable amount of faith in this social …

Image credits: istockphoto/visionchina  (Not the actual photo) “She was posting on the relationship advice subreddit. Her (now ex-) husband was abusive. We’d known something was off about him, but couldn’t really put our finger on it. I created another account that I only accessed from incognito mode to send her encouragement to leave, and to ask her family or friends (but kinda steered her towards us) for help.” People instantly started applauding the anonymous hero According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Sexual violence, stalking, and intimate partner violence are important public health problems that have an enormous and long term physical and mental health impact on victims.” A few years ago, the organization Turns out, intimate partner …
