    Love-themed tours are being offered in the Milan Cathedral for Valentine's Day -- and they'll include homosexual couples. The organization responsible for the restoration and maintenance of the cathedral, La Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo ("The Venerable Factory of the Cathedral"), is sponsoring the romantic tours, with the aim of raising funds for the renovation. The program includes a visit to the Church's spires at sunset. Unlike other tours, which are open to the general public and may include children, this one is aimed specifically at adult couples. If their donation surpasses 80 euros, a personalized certificate is issued as "a...

    This past week, four tasters at the Ardbeg Distillery in Islay, Scotland drank samples of whiskey that had aged for nearly three years aboard the International Space Station. They compared the samples to whiskey that had matured in a similar way here on Earth. The team said the space samples were completely unlike anything they had ever tasted before; something about the space environment had a distinct effect on the alcoholic beverage. "It was the most unusual tasting we’d ever done," Dr. Bill Lumsden, head of distilling and whiskey creation at the Glenmorangie Company, told The Verge. "I was amazed...

    For the second year in a row, a member of the LGBT community has taken home ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award, simply for being gay or transgender. If you take issue with that, you’re a trans-phobic and vile hatemonger, according to numerous media outlets. Peter Berg, director of such films as Lone Survivor, Friday Night Lights, and Battleship is feeling the wrath Thursday, after posting a critical image of Jenner’s ESPY selection to his Instagram page following Wednesday night’s show. Berg shared an image of Army veteran Gregory Gadson, a double amputee who played a role in Battleship, alongside an...

    Normally, I would not even think about the concept of digging into my past studies in sociology when writing anything for the political arena, but when it comes to social issues, focusing purely on politics can definitely do everyone a disservice. When it comes to the latest round of gay rights activists trying to push their agenda on the masses, I decided it was time to drag out the sociology at least a little. Erick Erickson observations here on the gay rights movement pushing their agenda too hard when it comes to religion were spot on. However, examining just the legal and...

    Would you like some Campylobacter or E. Coli today? Raw milk in 26 U.S. states is now the best place to get it, since most readers of Science 2.0 are not going to have the opportunity to buy chicken from a street vendor in China. That raw milk is risky and has no benefit is not news. In 2012 the CDC showed it again but clamoring for raw milk got even louder.

    Massachusetts Senate President Stanley Rosenberg is engaged. A spokesman for the Amherst Democrat confirmed Thursday that Rosenberg is planning to marry his domestic partner, Bryon Hefner. The two have been together since 2009. The relationship between the 65-year-old Rosenberg and the 27-year-old Hefner briefly became news last year after Hefner allegedly mocked outgoing Senate President Therese Murray on Twitter and boasted about his influence in the Legislature. That prompted Rosenberg to reassure his Democratic colleagues that he planned to enforce a "firewall" between his personal and professional lives. Rosenberg was elected by his fellow senators to replace Murray, who stepped...

The topic came up on Friday when the hosts of radio show, The Breakfast Club, asked the 35-year-old if he had any roles that he regretted missing. “The one role I regret—Tropic Thunder,” the Wedding Ringer star responded before admitting he had turned down the part because it was “real flagrant”. According to Kevin, he could have played the role of rapper-turned-actor Alpa Chino in the 2008 comedy, but he passed because the character, on script, was “real flagrant.” “I was like, ‘I can’t. I can’t do this,’” Kevin said of...

    With the pain becoming excruciating, his flatmate rushed him to hospital where a doctor put oil down the ear canal. This only forced the two centimeter (0.8 inch) roach to crawl in deeper, before it eventually began to die. "Near the 10 minute mark ... somewhere about there, he started to stop burrowing but he was still in the throes of death twitching," said Helmer. At that point the doctor put forceps into his ear and pulled out the cockroach.

If, somewhere in this or another galaxy, an advanced alien race is monitoring the broadcasts of Sarah Silverman, we can be sure that they will not be much tempted to visit. Silverman is a model American of the age, whose craft consists of taking a very old tradition, Jewish...

Today, we get the the form of a “kiss-in” by gay couples angry about remarks made by company president Dan Cathy. Will it be as successful? Boycotts have a revered place in American history as an effective form of protest, in large part because of the role they played in the civil rights movement. Lately, however, the tactic’s record is much more spotty. Looking at one list of current boycotts, I don’t see many, if any, that I’d count as...

No music, no flowers, no kiss, no dancing, not even a cupcake. Rage and outrage over same-sex marriage would take everybody’s mind off the dreary economy, which whimpers on. Everybody was then supposed to shut up and get back to work (for those with work). Instead, the president gets his photograph (with a rainbow halo) on the cover of Newsweek magazine...

    Larry King took his first commercial flight since September 11 recently, and the airport security people, sensing a rare opportunity for fame-fondling, took a little advantage when he failed the metal detector test.

So I had to stand there with [my] arms [out], and they are talking with me at the same time, 'loved the show last night, turn over your belt,' and then they grab you by the privates. They examined me pretty good."
