13 CHILDREN HELD CAPTIVE IN REAL LIFE 'HOUSE OF HORRORS' FOUND IN CALIFORNIA

With children ranging from ages 2 to 29, David and Louise Turpin kept all of their children in some kind of bondage.

This terror reality came to be known after their 17 year old daughter escaped from with a cell phone device and called 911.

Neighbors that were interviewed claimed that the children looked sickly and malnourished. Some had no idea the couple had as many as 13 children living in the house steps from them. Neighbor Kimberly Milligan said, "The older kids, I thought they were like 12 because they looked so malnourished, so pale.


The Turpins are being held under $9 million each, facing charges of child endangerment and torture. Authorities found the rest of the children shackled to beds where there starved in malodorous and dark surroundings.

  According to Catherine Deneuve, revered french actress, the #MeToo movement is one that has allowed for unjust consequences towards men for " flirting insistently or clumsily,” and it "infantilizes women and undermines sexual freedom", Variety reported.
  Deneuve further explained in this letter, that the movement borne of the Harvey Weinstein scandals was necessary for that because he sexually assaulted those women but the movement leaves in its wake men who "are sanctioned in their work, pushed to resign, etc., when their only wrongdoing was to touch a knee, try to steal a kiss, speak about intimate things during a professional dinner or send messages that are sexually loaded to a woman who wasn’t attracted to them,”

  Overall, Deneuve and other notable signatories felt the need to address their stance because they felt the movement strips women of their claim to feminism and self strength in comparison to men. To them, #MeToo throws women back in time where they are seen as weak beings, they do not believe this movement shows women as formidable equals to men. Instead it seeks to prevent men from being Chivalrous, "men should have the indispensable freedom to offend and bother women" .

The 'Raw water" craze
Image result for live water raw water

  Business Insider reported of a new craze among mostly silicon valley elite for raw water. Raw water is "unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized spring water". 
  A company called live water is the mastermind behind introducing this new fad of drinking water and apparently stores are consistently running out of stock because of how fast raw water  is flying of the shelves.
  Now, food safety professionals are warning of what some might say are obviously dangerous side effects of consuming such a product which include susceptibility to infections such as "cholera, hepatitis A, and E. coli".

  However, whats really surprising is how much people are willing to pay to procure this water, people pay up to $61 for a 2.5 gallon jug of water. Check out the video below by The Young Turks about Raw water:

Model raises awareness about the downside of tampon use



Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is associated with the use of tampons. Model Lauren Wasser already lost part of one of her legs as a result. according to the Washington Post she will need to have her other leg amputated in the coming months, as she suffers from persistent severe pains.



  Consequently, Wasser's experiences have led to champion legislative action by Carolyn Maloney, Democratic Rep., compelling the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to investigate the safety of feminine hygiene products' ingredients.

The FDA advises that tampon makers perform microbiology tests and wait for its approval before bringing products to market. As it is, there's very little studies on the side effects and hazards of tampon usage.
