When based on a neurologist; the stress and smoking or having an amphetamines amount taken when you’re pregnant is able to have a major role in your baby to develop sexuality fetus; would yoube the reason why your baby is born gay?
There are many academic studies to approve the claim; and that the brain; when affected by fetuses, starts to grow at 2 weeks; if you are introducing toxins into your body that would have an impact on your baby’s development; but there are other reasons why your baby is born gay.
The neurologist approves that pregnant women who suffer from stress; are also way beyond prone to have homosexual children of both genders! Because of their increased cortisol which is the stress hormone; it would have an effect on the production of the usual sex hormones.
Even though it’s mostly believed that development after birth does as well crucially has an effect on our sexual orientations; Thus, there’s no proof of this.
Children who are brought up by lesbians are not more prone to be gay or lesbian. And there is not any evidence at all for this almost-myth that homosexuality is a way of life!
As we know, in the 1980s there was an immense complains from gay rights campaigners, who claim his discoveries prove that homosexuality as a medical problem.
However, Professor Swaab states that his opinion is that sexuality is decided in the womb shuts down the argument, it is usually made by conservative groups, that gay people should be somehow cured.
Lifestyle factors of the mother could have an effect on the fetus, Swaab has acknowledged that genetics actually play the most crucial role in this.
Hasbro, the company that makes the potato-shaped plastic toy, is giving the spud a gender neutral new name: Potato Head. The change will appear on boxes this year.
Toy makers have been updating their classic brands to appeal to kids today. Barbie has shed its blonde image and now comes in multiple skin tones and body shapes. Thomas the Tank Engine added more girl characters. And American Girl is now selling a boy doll.
Hasbro said Mr. Potato Head, which has been around for about 70 years, needed a modern makeover.
The Chinese government has used anal swabs to test US diplomats for COVID-19 – but Beijing insisted to Washington that the butt checks were made “in error,” according to a report.
“The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it,” a State Department rep told VICE World News on Wednesday.
Washington complained that the rather invasive procedure was undignified, according to the report.
The State spokesperson said Beijing had assured Washington that the tests were given “in error” — and that diplomats were exempt from the test, which was required for incoming travelers in some parts of China.
“We have instructed staff to decline this test if it is asked of them, as was done in the past,” the rep told VICE World News, which noted it was unclear how many diplomats or their family members had undergone the procedure.
Meanwhile, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian on Thursday denied Beijing had even asked American diplomats to undergo the anal tests.
“To my knowledge…China has never required US diplomatic staff stationed in China to conduct anal swab tests,” Zhao told a daily news briefing in Beijing, Reuters reported.
In an email to Reuters, a State Department spokesperson said it was “committed to guaranteeing the safety and security of American diplomats and their families, while preserving their dignity.”
Officials in China have used anal swabs to test people it considers at high-risk of contracting the illness, including residents of neighborhoods with confirmed cases as well as some international travelers, according to AFP.
Tests using anal swabs can avoid missing infections as viral traces in fecal samples or anal swabs could remain detectable for longer periods than in those from the respiratory tract, Li Tongzeng, a respiratory diseases doctor in Beijing, told state TV recently.
Stool tests also may be more effective in detecting infections in kids as their waste carries a higher viral load than adults, researchers at the Chinese University of Hong Kong said in a paper published last year.
China’s National Health Commission said in an online post that in some cases, the deadly bug can be more easily detected in anal samples than in throat and nasal samples.
According to the commission’s instructions, the samples are collected by inserting a cotton swab about one to two inches into the rectum.
A traveler from Australia to China who was tested with anal swabs in September told VICE World News the procedure felt like having diarrhea.
What is the age difference between Lionel Richie and his girlfriend Lisa Parigi? Is she younger than his daughter?
Lionel Richie fans can’t believe that his girlfriend, Lisa Parigi, is younger than his daughter, Nicole.
This relationship isn’t a new one – Richie, 71, has been dating Parigi, 30, for a number of years, having first been romantically linked back in 2014.
However, a recent viral tweet posted by Twitter user @kulanicool sparked a new interest in the ‘All Night Long’ singer’s relationship. “Richie with his new Bae, he’s 71 and she’s 30, love wins,” reads the tweet alongside a photo of Richie and Parigi hugging.
Their 40 year age gap soon became the topic of conversation as some people noted that Parigi is significantly younger than the singer’s 39-year-old daughter, Nicole Richie.
Lionel Richie with his new Bae, he’s 71 and she’s 30, love wins
While Richie’s long-term girlfriend Parigi isn’t exactly a ‘new bae’, that didn’t stop people sending their well-wishes to the couple, with some even commenting on Richie’s looks.
“Wait Lionel Richie is 71 and still looks this handsome???? Madd,” wrote one user, while another added, “i really don’t see a problem with this, she’s grown enough to make her own decisions”.
Parigi grew up in Switzerland and is of Swiss, Caribbean and Chinese descent, according to heavy.com. She also speaks four languages fluently: German, French, Schwiizertüütsch (Swiss German) and English.
Having previously worked in modelling, Parigi now runs a lifestyle blog called ‘Dream Design Discover’ and is the founder of lifestyle brand The Estate Collection.
Angels. Who doesn’t relish the notion of higher beings looking over us and helping mere humans when we need it most? Sounds almost too good to be true, right? But, did you know that 8 out of 10 people believe angels are real?Despite the evident diversity in religious beliefs, it seems, from what I can find, all 12 main world religions and many others also believe in some types of angels. In this article, we will focus on the nine orders of angels according to christian angelology.
What are Angels
Let’s start with the fundamentals of what we believe to know about these most divine beings. An Angel is thought to be a mighty being with supernatural dominion over the earth. The idea of Angels is a repeated theme throughout numerous and many religions and other practices. For example, some people practice the belief that Angels are independent entities bound more to Mother Earth or pasted loved ones helping us or even spirit guides of the elements. Other of God’s Angels have apparently fallen from his grace.
The word “Angel” comes from the Greek word Angelos, meaning messenger, the medieval Latin word is Angelus, which translates into a heavenly creature, and the Hebrew word Mal’akh is used both as a messenger and divine-human. Many other religions have different titles for the same type of being, such as spirit beings, watchers, devas, Malaa’ika, and guides, to name a few.
We won’t even be able to get to Angels in mythologies in this brief overview. We will focus on the more standard Christian view of Angels. The Bible refers to the angels as God’s attendants. Some of God’s angels are guardians to the planet and humans. According to Christian Angelology, Angels are divided into three types and nine orders. Keep in mind, however, that other religions categorize Angels in different types and for different means.
First sphere: Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones.
Second sphere: Dominions, Virtues and Powers.
Third sphere: Principalities, Archangelsand Guardian Angels.
SERAPHIM (plural) are the highest order of angels in the heavens. In other words, they are the closest to god. Their role is to exclusively worship the Lord and give thanks unto Him.
Seraphim have six wings, with two they cover their faces, two cover their feet, and two they use for flying. The following is a passage from Isaiah 6:1-3 King James Version (KJV) that describes Seraphim:
6:1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
6:2 Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain, he covered his face, and with twain, he covered his feet, and with twain, he did fly.
6:3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
CHERUBIM (plural) these beings are the second most powerful of Heaven’s Angels. The Bible describes this type as nobly angelic, but mighty beings that encircle God’s throne. Cherubim’s are the guardians of the Ark of the Covenant, and the entrance to the Garden of Eden after “man” was driven out.
Cherubim are very much, unlike the cute and cuddly image most have of what they look like. In the Book of Ezekiel and a Christian, icon described the Cherubim with two pairs of wings and four faces: one of a lion, one of an ox, one of an eagle, and one of a human. Not quite what you thought, right? Like I explained before in this article, other religions place different hierarchies on the groups. In Islam, the Cherubim angels are the closest group to God.
Ref: Ezekiel 1:5–11 and Genesis:24
THRONES are the third-ranking order of Angels that reside over the cosmos, especially where the material starts to take form. They also chant glories to God and remain in his presence always. The Thrones dispense God’s divine justice and maintain harmony in all of the universal laws of the cosmos.
They are portrayed as great wheels comprising many eyes and sparkle with the color of burnished brass. If you could imagine giant Ferris Wheel, but alive and ready to do God’s work. Often called the Many-Eyed Ones, they have four wings and four faces.
They have the hands of a man under their wings and are joined together. The sound of their wings is like the roar of great water. Above their heads shows the likeness of the heavens, which is shown in a kaleidoscopic of colors from a crystal.
Ref: Ezekiel 1:13-19
DOMINIONS (plural) holds the fourth-ranking position in orders of Angels. Dominations govern over nations and decide the success or failure of a domain. They deliver justice, show mercy, and lead lower-ranking Angels. Often represented as holding a golden staff in their right hand and the Seal of God in the left.
VIRTUES are the fifth ranking order of Angels. The Virtues are a group of Angels that rule over miracles, blessings, grace, valor, and encouragement. Known as Brilliant or Shining Ones, they mainly help people struggling with their faith.
POWERS angels sixth ranking classification of angels credited as being created first by God. They are the elite sentry that hold a constant watch for demonic invasion into the world.
They are also responsible for protecting our souls from acts of demonic evil. Because they are responsible for protecting the border between Heaven and Earth, they are the principal protection during heavenly warfare between good and evil. Upon our death, it is believed that it is the Powers that guide our soul’s transition to Heaven.
PRINCIPALITIES OR PRINCES are the seventh in the orders of the Angels and are given more freedoms than subsequent Angels. This group of Angles governs the responsibilities of the Angels that follow.
They are also responsible for conducting divine acts of guidance and guardianship over world leaders. Often described as wearing what looks more like a soldier’s uniform, they are the order that helped David slay Goliath.
Archangels are one of the most well known and are eighth in orders of angels. There are as many different names for the top Archangels as there are internet searches.
From only one official Archangel Michael to three top, four top, eleven top, or fifteen top Archangel and the list goes on, ok you get the idea. Archangels, however, are extraordinary beings, all of which specific healing gifts. Each Archangel has a particular role and are acknowledged as extensions of God himself.
We will be taking a more in-depth look at the following Archangels in another series, but there are seven that sums up the Archangel’s role:
The Warrior – Archangel Michael
The Healer – Archangel Raphael
The Messenger – Archangel Gabriel
Angel of Beauty – Archangel Jophiel
Angel of Nature and Animals – Archangel Ariel
Angel of Relationships – Archangel Chamuel
Angel of Death – Archangel Azreal
We will also be taking a look at the Archangel Metatron, who is not canonically accepted as an Archangel. The Book of Enoch, however, mentions Metatron as an archangel and classes him the highest of all angels.
If, by chance, we miss your favorite Archangel, let us know, and we will take a look at adding them to the list.
9. Guardian Angels
Guardian Angels, the last types of the angels are divine, assisting beings. In some instances, a Guardian Angel will serve as an ethereal messenger to support and help. In other cases, they will transform and take visible form.
Either way, they attend to an individual’s well-being, guarding, and protect those who call upon them from harm. Guardian Angels offer guidance, support, and comfort accompanying individuals on a path of self-reliance.
When you study the orders of Angels, while all are supreme divide beings, the higher up the hierarchy, the more Archangel’s responsibility falls away from the earthly realm and focus more on God.
Guardian Angels and Archangels interact the most with the earth and daily life. As we look up the sequence, you can see the transition from world assistance, to protecting the veils between realms and the cosmos, finally and ultimately reaching the job of only praising God.
Please keep in mind that this is only one viewpoint of this very complex topic. Global Bizarre is hoping to dive deeper into the mysteries of the world and help shed light on every perspective on the issues that matter to us today.
When police broke into Andrea LynnBlankenship’s home in Chickasha, Okla., on Feb. 12, they found her body stabbed and her chest mutilated.
Earlier that day, the victim’s neighbor admitted to breaking into Blankenship’s home, cutting out her heart and taking it back to his uncle’s house, police said.
“He cooked the heart with potatoes to feed to his family to release the demons,” an agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said to a judge in a request for a search warrant, which was reviewed by the Oklahoman.
Lawrence Paul Anderson then allegedly killed his uncle and his uncle’s 4-year-old granddaughter in a gruesome case that has rocked the city of 16,400 about 40 miles southwest of Oklahoma City. Anderson, 42, was charged Tuesday with three counts of first-degree murder and two felony charges of assault and battery with a deadly weapon and maiming, court records show.
Anderson was denied bond on Tuesday, and it isn’t clear whether he made a plea. Lawyers for Anderson didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment late Tuesday.
Police have not said whether they suspect a motive in the slayings.
Police first learned of the crimes on Feb. 9, when they received a 911 call from someone inside the home of Leon Pye, Anderson’s 67-year-old uncle, OSBI said in a news release. Anderson had been staying with his uncle and aunt, 64-year-old DelsiePye, after Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) commuted his 20-year prison sentence. He was released on Jan. 18 after serving a little more than three years in prison, according to court records.
According to OSBI, the person who called the police quickly hung up, prompting the dispatcher to alert Chickasha police. Once they arrived at the home, police heard someone inside yelling for help and then found LeonPye and his 4-year-old granddaughter, Kaeos Yates, who was visiting for the day, dead. His wife, Delsie, was maimed with stab wounds in both eyes, KFOR reported.
Delsieand Anderson, who was also injured, were transported to a hospital for treatment, OSBI said.
While in custody in the hospital on Feb. 12, Anderson admitted to killing Blankenship, 41, police said. Anderson said he had walked to her house and used his shoulder to slam into the back door to break it open. He then fatally stabbed her and “cut her heart out,” he later told OSBI agents. Then he walked to his aunt and uncle’s home, where he cooked it and tried to force them to eat it before attacking them, the Oklahoman reported.
After he recovered at the hospital, police transported Anderson on Feb. 15 to GradyCounty Jail. Anderson is scheduled to return to court on April 1.
Anderson has a lengthy criminal past, court records show. He first went to prison in 2006 and served two years for possessing crack cocaine with the intent to distribute and for attacking his girlfriend and pointing a gun at her. In 2012, he returned to prison with a 15-year sentence for another crack cocaine distribution charge, but was released early after less than six years. In 2017, he was sentenced to 20 years on drug charges and having a gun, which was in violation of his probation. That sentence was commuted by Stitt last June to nine years before he was again released early.
At a news conference on Tuesday, Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks (R) condemned the governor’s commutation and blasted the parole board for letting Anderson out. “I really think an offender such as this should have not ever been able to even apply for a commutation,” Hicks said.
A spokesman for Stitt did not immediately return a request for comment.
Hicks added the Oklahoma Department of Corrections warned in Anderson’s application that he was a “high risk to offend.”
Hicks also said he is considering capital punishment.
“The death penalty is absolutely on the table,” he said.
In an interview with KFOR, Haylee Blankenship, Andrea Blankenship’s 18-year-old daughter, remembered her mother as caring and “filled with so much love.”
Speaking for a family still in shock over the details of their loved one’s death, the younger Blankenship hopes the district attorney pursues the death penalty. “I hope that he spends the rest of his life thinking about it until he gets his life taken, just like he took those people’s lives,” she said.
About three dozen House Democrats have signed a letter asking President Biden to renounce his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, according to reports.
We agree Biden is too feeble to make that decision but we don’t want that power taken from the presidency.
“Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” the letter from Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., and obtained by Politico reads. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.”
There is also a real risk in an emergency of having more than one decide.
LET PELOSI OR HARRIS DECIDE?
The letter continues: “While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so. The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”
The alternatives they offered were the vice president or the House Speaker. In this current situation, it would be an unpopular leftist or a hate-filled leftist.
Currently, the President has the code and passes down the order — the ‘nuclear football.’
Pelosi said she spoke to Milley on Jan. 5 “to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”
Pelosi wants to control the code no doubt. She’s dangerous. It took her an hour to decide to send in the National Guard during the Capitol riot. In fact, she has the sole authority over Capitol security and it was undermanned.
A Bronx school superintendent says she was fired as a result of Chancellor Richard Carranza’s “equity” agenda that advanced people of color over whites. Karen Ames is suing the New York schools for $150 million because she says she was targeted by Carranza’s “Disrupt and Dismantle” campaign to oust or marginalize longtime employees.
Soon after coming to NYC, Chancellor Carranza praised Bronx superintendent Karen Ames for raising math scores in struggling schools. Then his First Deputy Chancellor dropped the ax. She’s charging age, sex and ethnic bias in a $150M suit. https://t.co/uFHHMD33EX
“The agenda of Chancellor Carranza and his senior leadership team was euphemistically touted as an ‘equity platform’ but in reality, it was a platform used to create gender, age, racial and ethnic divisions in the NYC School system,” she contends in her lawsuit.
Ames was grilled about her “ethnic background,” chastised by a colleague at a training session when she shared her grandparents’ experience during the Holocaust in Poland, and “admonished” when she declined requests at superintendents meetings to take part in the comic book movie-inspired “Wakanda Forever” salute to “black power,” she charges in the legal filing.
Almost too funny to be real, but Ames isn’t laughing.
Ames was praised by Carranza in a visit to her Bronx school. He praised her for raising math scores at troubled schools.
But instead of celebrating Ames’ work, Cheryl Watson-Harris, Carranza’s top deputy — who left last year to become schools chief in DeKalb County, Ga. — interrogated Ames during a chauffeured car ride about her DOE history, her family, residency and “improperly inquired” about her ethnicity, she claims.
I guess the non-discrimination laws are only for little people.
At an implicit-bias workshop where superintendents were asked to tell their personal stories, Amestalked about her grandparents’ loss of two children during the Holocaust — only to have colleague Rasheda Amon tell her, “you better check yourself,” the lawsuit alleges.
“That is not about being Jewish! It’s about black and brown boys of color only,” court papers quote Amon as scolding.
Radical educators are banking on parents either agreeing with them or being too busy to pay much attention to what they’re filling their kids’ heads with for 8 hours a day.
The situation for Ames came to a head in August 2018 when she was summoned to the Department of Education headquarters. There, she was handed a termination letter by Watson-Harris who told her the department was “was moving in a new direction.”
Colleagues were prohibited from communicating with her, and Watson-Harris ordered staff to “eradicate” any reference to Ames, down to the district’s purple color scheme she had designed, she charges.
When the single mom pleaded to keep her employment, retirement benefits and health insurance, the DOE sent her to a Brooklyn “rubber room” with nothing to do.
A month later, Ames was given a choice: take a demotion or be removed from the payroll in 24 hours. She took the demotion.
“This case highlights that those in power often put their own agendas before the well-being of our community. It’s a terrible example for our children to be taught to judge people on anything other than merit,” her attorney Israel Goldberg said.
I suppose Chancellor Carranza’s “disrupt and dismantle” program means disrupting innocent people’s lives and dismantling fairness.
Malcolm X’s family has released a letter it says was written by a deceased New York cop claiming the NYPD and FBI were behind the 1965 Harlem assassination of the civil-rights activist.
Malcolm X was gunned down at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan a year after breaking ranks with the Nation of Islam.
Three members of the black separatism group were convicted in the shooting.
On Saturday, some of Malcolm X’s daughters released a letter attributed to a former undercover NYPD officer, Raymond Wood, at the site of the former hotel on 165th Street. The family members were joined by Reggie Wood, a cousin of the late officer.
In the letter, Raymond Wood allegedly wrote that NYPD supervisors pressured him into luring two members of Malcolm X’s security details into committing crimes that led to their arrests in the days before the activist was slain.
The letter said the arrests provided the chance for lax door security at the hotel ballroom and were part of a conspiracy between federal investigators and New York police to have Malcolm killed.
“Under the direction of my handlers, I was told to encourage leaders and members of the civil-rights groups to commit felonious acts,” the letter stated.
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance said last year that his office would reopen the case to investigate the long-held contentions by some historians and scholars that the wrong suspects were arrested for the slaying.
In the wake of the letter, Vance’s office released a statement saying its “review of this matter is active and ongoing.”
The NYPD said it is cooperating with the prosecutor’s effort.
“The NYPD has provided all available records relevant to that case to the District Attorney. The Department remains committed to assist with that review in any way,” Sgt. Edward Riley wrote in a statement to the Post on Sunday
The FBI declined comment.
Ilyasah Shabazz, Malcolm X’s daughter, said she had always lived with uncertainty around the circumstances of her father’s death.
