By admin - Published on Friday, 08 March 2013 09:50

"Republican lawmakers are passing increasingly tougher state abortion laws to test what courts will allow, even as not all opponents of the procedure endorse the strategy.

Arkansas this week adopted the most restrictive U.S. law by banning most abortions after 12 weeks of pregnancy. The move could backfire if a challenge reaffirms the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v.

Higgs Boson was one discovery, but a G-spot is the real icing on the cake of scientific discovery, and thousands of scientists at CERN are determined to research and gather enough data to actually pinpoint the whereabouts of the slippery little spot that has evaded so many men since time immemorial."

"Just when you thought yoga couldn’t get any hotter – because it seems everyone is doing it – here comes a New York insider’s guide to the practice that is causing devotees to think again. In his investigation into Bikram, the most fashionable and extreme form of yoga, that is conducted in rooms of scorching heat, writer Benjamin Lorr warns that potential followers must go into it with eyes open: this is a fitness regime that should come with a health warning. Yes, it can it help you get into the leanest and most flexible shape of your life: but if you do as he did and follow the regime to its limit you are entering a world of almost addictive pain and taking huge risks with your body."
