ice-t and body count back with bleak anthem 'no lives matter'

From the man who brought you "Cop Killer" comes the latest anti-PC bear-poking anthem from Ice-T and his occasional rap metal combo Body Count, "No Lives Matter." The thundering track is the first single from the band's upcoming sixth studio album, Bloodlust (March 31), which features cameos from Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe, Sepultura's Max Cavalera and Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine. Spoiler alert: in the spoken word intro to "No Lives Matter" T (who has portrayed Det. Odafin "Fin" Tutuola on Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit since 2000) explains, "It's unfortunate that we have to say 'black lives matter.' If you go through history nobody ever gave a f--k. I mean you can kill black people in the street. Nobody goes to jail, nobody goes to prison. When I say 'black lives matter' and yo

new report assesses va's airborne hazards and open burn pit registry

WASHINGTON - Inherent features of registries that rely on voluntary participation and self-reported information make them fundamentally unsuitable for determining whether emissions from military burn pits in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations in Southwest Asia caused health problems in service members who were exposed to them, says a new congressionally mandated report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. While the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' Airborne Hazards and Open Burn Pit (AH&OBP) Registry provides a forum for collecting and recording information on those who choose to participate, a more rigorous and appropriate approach is needed to examine the relationship between the exposures and health outcomes, such as a well-designed epidemiologic st

infants are more exposed to harmful pollution on the way to school than on the w

Babies in prams accompanying older siblings on the school run are twice as likely to be exposed to harmful air pollution in the morning than in the afternoon, a new study has found.
The new research, published in the journal Environmental Pollution today, highlights the high levels exposure of babies in prams to fine and ultrafine particulate matter during the morning drop-in hours of school children compared with the afternoon drop-off hours.
The study, carried out by researchers at the University of Surrey, also revealed that the worst places for infants to be exposed was at bus stops and traffic lights when they are waiting to cross roads.
A recent WHO report states that 570,000 children under the age of 5 die every year from respiratory infections, such as pneumonia, attributable t

concurrent heat waves, air pollution exacerbate negative health effects of each

Irvine, Calif., March 1, 2017 - The combination of prolonged hot spells with poor air quality greatly compounds the negative effects of each and can pose a major risk to human health, according to new research from the University of California, Irvine."The weather factors that drive heat waves also contribute to intensified surface ozone and air pollution episodes," said UCI professor of Earth system science Michael J. Prather, co-author of the study, published this week in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. "These extreme, multiday events tend to cluster and overlap, worsening the health impacts beyond the sum of their individual effects."Heat waves cause widespread discomfort and can be deadly for vulnerable individuals, while surface ozone and air pollution are linked to p

courts have a field day on wednesday

The apex court while hearing a petition pertaining to certificate of verification for Advocates was apprised by the counsel that the orders of SC has been bypassed. Rules suggest that 46 month time is needed before the appeal. That will take around 5 years. To which the court replied, “let us hear the matter after Holi, so that once and for all we finish the matter.”The counsel further submitted, “Bar Council of India (BCI) issued the notice to all the universities, therefore 300-400 are here. Please clarify that all the universities need not to be here.”The Court replied, “All universities need not to be here, only for verification they are required. Verification of any member by BCI or state bar council, such verification should be done by university without any fees,” and posted the mat

researchers create new form of matter—supersolid is crystalline and superfluid a

This image shows the equipment used by the Ketterle group to create a supersolid. Credit: Massachusetts Institute of TechnologyMIT physicists have created a new form of matter, a supersolid, which combines the properties of solids with those of superfluids.
By using lasers to manipulate a superfluid gas known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, the team was able to coax the condensate into a quantum phase of matter that has a rigid structure—like a solid—and can flow without viscosity—a key characteristic of a superfluid. Studies into this apparently contradictory phase of matter could yield deeper insights into superfluids and superconductors, which are important for improvements in technologies such as superconducting magnets and sensors, as well as efficient energy transport.

two common fatal mistakes people make in their relationships that ruin their liv

You’re in a relationship and you really want to stay that way. But after you commit, things start to go wrong and before you know it, you’re sitting heartbroken in your room crying. Sound familiar? About 40-50% of married couples get divorced in the United States today. So what can you do to make sure you avoid adding to the dismal number? For starters, avoid these two common fatal mistakes.Mistake Number 1: Forming a relationship because you feel you need it, not because you want itMany people confuse need with want. When you need someone, you may be staying because you’re afraid to be alone, for financial security, or because you aren’t sure you can find anything better.

no mechanism to stop uploading of obscene contents: govt to sc

The government today raised its hands before the Supreme Court and conceded that as of now there is "no mechanism" to prevent uploading of obscene contents like videos of sexual violence on websites, before these are uploaded.The submission came before a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and U U Lalit which asked "what is the stand of the government", after internet service provider Google said there cannot be a "reasonable prevention" before such contents are uploaded on websites."Today, there is no mechanism to prevent it before it is uploaded on the websites," the lawyer appearing for the Centre said, prompting the bench to ask, "why is there no such mechanism?"Responding to the query, the government said, "somebody has to tell us about it (uploading of such contents).
