Nixon disliked Reagan, liked Rockefeller
CNN | Submitted by: 0mega
"Talking politics with White House Chief of Staff H.R. Haldeman at Camp David in August 1972, Nixon switched the conversation to two Republican governors, Reagan of California and Nelson Rockefeller of New York... 'Reagan is not one that wears well... On a personal basis, Rockefeller is a pretty nice guy... Reagan on a personal basis, is terrible. He just isn't pleasant to be around.' ... Reagan later served two terms as president. But like Nixon, Reagan had a scandal of his own, involving trading arms to Iran for hostages and illegally aiding anti-government forces in Nicaragua."

Another innocent victim of faith healing
New Zealand Herald | Submitted by: der Golem
"Police are investigating the death of a baby whose family had tried to heal him with prayer. Four-month-old Caleb Nathaniel Tribble died last Friday... The baby's father, David Tribble, said the family had strong Baptist beliefs and believed in the healing power of God, but were not part of any extremist sect or cult. He said his father, John, had been trying to heal the baby by laying his hands on him and praying, according to the beliefs of the Auckland-based Liberty Christian Church, to which the family belonged... 'Just so everybody in the world knows, I don't put my faith in a cabbage or turnip or anything like that. They put their faith in herbs or vegetables. I put my faith directly in the Holy Spirit.'"

Colorado refurbs gay sex club exterior
KCNC-TV 4 Denver | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"More than $200,000 in state money was paid to renovate a building in Denver that houses a sex club... Midtown Spas ads boast of hot men, hot music and hot sex shows several times a week. The spa is a legal, for-profit business. It has operated there for more than 20 years... 'We're supporting basically a sex club, so they can create a dungeon in there with their own money and have sex parties and so forth, and I dont want my state dollars being used for that,' Rep. David Schultheis, R-Colorado Springs, said... State Historical Society officials said they don't see how restoring the exterior of the building is a benefit to the business inside."

New technique yields ebola vaccine for mice
BBC | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Scientists have successfully immunised mice against the deadly ebola virus which has killed thousands in Africa. They used virus-like particles (VLPs) which are non-infectious but are capable of triggering a strong response by the immune system. Usually lethal doses of ebola had no impact on the vaccinated mice... Colonel Erik Henchal, commander of USAMRIID, said: 'This is astonishing work. The ability to produce self-assembling particles that resemble whole virus will give us a new tool to evaluate the combination of variables required to produce a protective immune response to ebola virus.'"

Patient wins lawsuit over unauthorized circumcision
Aftenposten | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A man who woke up in a Molde hospital and found himself the recipient of an unexpected circumcision has been awarded $3,000 in compensation from the surgeon, newspaper Sunnmørsposten reports... The patient told the court that he would never have embarked on surgery to relieve an uncomfortably tight foreskin if he had known a circumcision would result. The man claimed that the circumcision had destroyed his sex life by reducing the sensitivity of his penis and because he was now embarrassed to appear naked in front of his wife. He said he was also embarrassed to be naked in public bathing facilities now."

Prostitutes working the dawn shift
Houston Press | Submitted by: uucp
"In the last two months, complaints about prostitutes working the early-morning, before-breakfast, way-to-work crowd have almost tripled, says Sergeant Phillip Fleming of the Galveston Police Department vice and narcotics squad... Fleming talks about prostitutes like a Discovery Channel big game hunter. When he conducts a sting, he tries to hit a different area at a different time of day. If police prey on the same spot too often, the herd of hookers will move... 'They'll pull over right on the side of the curb, right in front of somebody's house with kids playing out in the yard. You don't want your kid walking by some car and see a girl giving a guy a blow job.'"

Website photos induce economic irrationality
New Scientist | Submitted by: aliconto
"Male and female students at McMaster University were shown pictures of the opposite sex of varying attractiveness taken from the website Hot or Not. The 209 students were then offered the chance to win a reward. They could either accept a cheque for between $15 and $35 tomorrow or one for $50-$75 at a variable point in the future. Wilson and Daly found that male students shown the pictures of averagely attractive women showed exponential discounting of the future value of the reward. This indicated that they had made a rational decision. When male students were shown pictures of pretty women, they discounted the future value of the reward in an 'irrational' way - they would opt for the smaller amount of money available the next day rather than wait for a much bigger reward. Women, by contrast, made equally rational decisions whether they had been shown pictures of handsome men or those of average attractiveness."

Sneaky interrogation technique on trial
Boston Globe | Submitted by: dianalily
"Several Supreme Court justices expressed concern yesterday about a new police tactic that they called an 'end run' around the requirement that officers inform suspects of their rights... The tactic, described in some police training manuals and promoted on a website on policing, involves two rounds of questioning of a suspect at the police station - the first to get a confession without advising the suspect of the right to remain silent and have a lawyer, the second to have the confession repeated after giving what are known as Miranda warnings."

Supreme Court reconsidering obscenity standards
CNN | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The Supreme Court has not taken up the question of what is considered obscene since 1973, before the VCR and the Internet revolutionized how people view porn. In the landmark case Miller v. California, the nation's top court ruled that communities around the country had the right to apply local standards in deciding what is considered obscene... Today, adult entertainment companies say the Internet, and cable and satellite television, allow buyers to access porn in the privacy of their homes without affecting the community around them or the standards of the people who live there... If something is downloaded directly into a person's home, does the community still have the right to decide what its local members are allowed to see?"
