Women’s Pain Is Different From Men’sthe Drugs Could Be Too

Men and women can’t feel each other’s pain. Literally. We have different biological pathways for chronic pain, which means pain-relieving drugs that work for one sex might fail in the other half of the population. So why don’t we have pain medicines designed just for men or women? The reason is simple: Because no one has looked for them. Drug development begins with studies on rats and mice, and until three years ago, almost all that research used only male animals. As a result, women in particular may be left with unnecessary pain—but men might be too. Now a study in the journal Brain reveals differences in the sensory nerves that enter the spinal cords of men and women with …

‘Pet Sematary’ would be better off dead

This review contains spoilers. Theres a reason Stephen Kings novels are notoriously difficult to adapt for the big screen. The horror veteran is a master of character development and suspense, imbuing his protagonists with a humanity that makes their imminent doom even more bone-chilling when it finally comes. Perhaps nowhere is this prolonged sense of dread on better display than 1983s Pet Sematary, a white-knuckle story of death, resurrection, and the folly of man. But directors Kevin Klsch and Dennis Widmyer’s latest adaptation,which premiered on the final night of SXSW, is abloodless bastardization of its source material that sinks under its own uninspired storytelling and horror movie cliches. Pet Sematary (2019) RELEASE DATE: 4/5/2019 DIRECTOR: Kevin Klsch, Dennis Widmyer The …

The Jacksons Concert Goes On As Planned In Brazil, Even After Paris’ Reported Health Scare – Perez Hilton

The show must go on, apparently. The Jacksons put on a show as scheduled Saturday night in Brazil, as you can see (above), choosing to perform for those who have stayed their fans in the wake of the Leaving Neverland fall-out. And more notably for last night itself, the show continued on According to reports from the ground in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the family troupe hit the stage at Espaco Das Americas to a “packed audience” with Tito, Marlon, Randy, and Jackie on stage — Jermaine, who’s battling illness right now, was one family member notably missing from the event. The group sang all the staples of the old Jackson 5, including I Want You Back, ABC, Dancing Machine, and The Love You Save — all notable songs that unabashedly feature Michael Jackson, …

Gaming compant Valve removed tributes to New Zealand shooter

Valve, the company behind the hugely popular PC gaming platform Steam, has taken down the profiles of more than 100 users honoring the man who allegedly attacked two New Zealand mosques on Friday, killing 50. According to Kotaku, dozens of users of the PC gaming service offered tribute to the alleged attacker, who also apparentlywrote a white supremacist manifesto.

According to the Verge,the platform removed these profiles after Kotaku contacted Valve for comment. Still, “hundreds of pages continue to nod towards past mass shooters including perpetrators of massacres in Charleston, Isla Vista and Parkland and of the …

Atlassian acquires AgileCraft for $166M

Atlassian today announced that it has acquired AgileCraft, a service that aims to give enterprises plan their strategic projects and workstreams. The service provides business leaders with additional insights into the current status of technical projects and gives them insights into the bottlenecks, risks and dependencies of these projects. Indeed, the focus of AgileCraft is less on technical teams than on the business teams that support them and help them manage the digital transformation of their businesses. The price total of the acquisition is about $166 million, with $154 million in cash and the remainder in restricted shares. “Many leaders are still making mission-critical decisions using their instincts and best guesses instead of data,” said Scott Farquhar, Atlassian’s co-founder and …

Donald Trump’s 2020 secret sauce

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump isn’t in a great place to win a second term in 2020. That economic message could well be Trump’s secret sauce come 2020. In strong economies — or economies perceived as strong — voters tend to reward the incumbent president, just as they punish the president when the economy is faltering. Trump could well run on this basic argument: You may not like me or my style of politics. But look at the results! Is now really the time to change presidents?

How the Christchurch terrorist attack was made for social media

(CNN)The footage is grainy and has a video-game aesthetic. But it soon becomes terrifyingly obvious that what is being filmed here is not a work of fiction. The video, which has not been verified by CNN, appears to show an unseen attacker opening fire on worshippers in a mosque, as if they were targets in a game. The attacks took place in the apparently unlikely location of Christchurch, New Zealand, still struggling to recover after a devastating earthquake that brought down thousands of buildings and killed nearly 200 people in 2011. The city’s population fell sharply after that event. The exodus was largely replenished by migrants, many hired to help rebuild the city. New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said …

Feisty New Snake Species Has Some Nasty Tricks Up Its Sleeve

A new species of snake has been discovered in West Africa. Although it looks mighty pretty, with a purpley iridescent sheen, this sassy newly described stiletto snake has some terrifying tricks up its sleeve. On top of its extremely short and stout skull, typical of this snake genus, it also has fangs sticking out of the corner of its mouth. It’s even able to stab its unsuspecting victims sideways with a closed mouth. Oh, and it can jump its own body length. As you can imagine, this makes the venomous snake very difficult for humans to handle and study, as it’s still able to stab your fingers, even if you’re holding it behind the head. Fortunately, it’s not venomous enough to kill …

Newfound spiders named for ‘Star Wars’ Stormtroopers

Like the Stormtroopers, the spiders “are very similar to each other, with some capacity for camouflage”; the sci-fi soldiers and the newfound spiders are also alike in being somewhat clumsy, according to the study. However, there is no evidence (yet) that the spiders, like their movie namesakes, are terrible at hitting moving targets with a blaster. [9 Animals with ‘Star Wars’-Inspired Names] Stormtroopers are a common sight across the Empire’s conquered worlds in the “Star Wars” universe, and Colombia’s bald-legged spiders turned out to be surprisingly numerous, too. Though the arachnids had never been reported in that country before, the study authors described two species in two previously known genera — Paratropis, Anisaspis— and four in the newfound Stormtropisgenus. All …

Former Sen. Birch Bayh, Champion Of Title IX Federal Law, Dies

Now, women make up more than half of those receiving bachelor’s and graduate degrees and more than 3 million high school girls — one in two — play sports. “There was a soccer field I used to jog around,” he said in a 2002 interview. “One day, all of a sudden, I realized that half of the players were little girls and half of them were little boys. I realized then that that was, in part, because of Title IX.” But it was his work to pass the landmark Title IX law that helped solidify his legacy before his death Thursday at age 91. “You simply cannot look at the evolution of equality in our nation without acknowledging the contributions …

‘Thai Banksy’ tests boundaries with gallery show before election

Headache Stencils work portrays Thai democracy as a game for the ruling elite His works began appearing overnight on the streets of Bangkok and Chiang Mai five years ago, incendiary satirical depictions of the military officials who took power in Thailand in the 2014 coup. The authorities worked quickly to erase all trace of the graffiti, but there was no stopping the artist, who calls himself Headache Stencil and is often referred to as the Banksy of Thailand. Pictures of his works portraying the Thai prime minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha, as Dr Evil from Austin Powers or the deputy prime minister on the face of a Rolex have been shared millions of times on social media. In the buildup to on …

Trolls Are Boring Now

Captain Marvel’s $455 million opening weekend is an enormous, expensive failure. Not for Marvel, or fans of superhero movies, or people whose opinions matter. For trolls. Trolls have been trying to sabotage Captain Marvel's success since the first trailer dropped last September. So persistent and numerous were these trolls in their “review bombing” that Rotten Tomatoes changed its policies to prevent people from rating a movie before its release, and YouTube altered its search algorithm to uncouple star Brie Larson's name from the smears. Angela Watercutter Captain Marvel Is About Female Power—Not Empowerment Angela Watercutter Rotten Tomatoes' Revamp Could Save Captain Marvel Angela Watercutter Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Russian Trolls, and the Disintegration of Discourse Captain Marvel's box office …

Brexit talks continue over DUP concerns

MPs vote to seek delay to Brexit Will EU leaders agree to extending Brexit? McVey hints she will back PM’s Brexit deal The third “meaningful vote” on Mrs May’s deal is expected by 20 March and, if agreed, the prime minister has promised to seek a short extension to the Brexit departure date of 29 March, after MPs voted in favour of a delay. If it fails to gain support, having already been defeated in the Commons by large margins twice, Mrs May has warned a longer extension may be needed and the UK may have to take part in European elections. The 10 votes provided by the DUP, which has a parliamentary pact with the Conservatives, are thought to …
