    The TV critic at The New York Times is keeping an eye on the tube, so we don’t have to. Reading this, describing what’s coming into our living rooms this summer, I have to think that’s a very good thing: In case you missed the news that traditional courtship is dead, naked people on VH1 stand ready to enlighten you. And in case you thought that television networks had evolved beyond trying to attract viewers with cheesy titillation — ditto.Yes, it’s time for “Dating Naked,” a reality series beginning Thursday on VH1 in which just-introduced strangers looking for love are...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | Feb 2 2010 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    There has been a lot of very good discussion on yesterday’s blog post on the banishment of “dirty dancing” at many school dances. Much of the discussion has centered on modesty. Modesty is a beautiful, essential and often diminished virtue in today’s “tell-all,” ”show-all” world. There are many good definitions of modesty. Websters dictionary defines modesty first as freedom from conceit or vanity and secondly as propriety in dress, speech or conduct. It is the second definition that concerns us. While the Websters definition of modesty is surely accurate I would like to say that the most beautiful and thought-provoking...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was unequivocal in his condemnation of the actions taken by some of his staffers last fall to exact political retribution by closing George Washington Bridge traffic lanes and causing major backups, but he continued to deny any prior knowledge of the plot in a press conference Thursday. Christie began by apologizing to the people of Fort Lee and New Jersey, and said he would be traveling to Fort Lee later Thursday to repeat his sentiment directly to the most affected community.

    A naked Pamela Anderson will beckon from Chinese billboards in a new anti-fur campaign _ if the former "Baywatch" star can get past the censors. The posters, featuring the slogan "Give fur the cold shoulder" in English, show the Canadian-born actress topless with her back to the camera and an arm partly hiding her right breast. An image of falling snow appears above Chinese characters reading "cold shoulders are nothing compared to the pain they feel," and "please don't wear fur." China's straight-laced media regulators have yet to give the posters a green light, said Jason Baker, a Hong Kong-based...

Instead, Reno 911! creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant are working on the script (which makes sense since they appreciate the...

    Controversial "naked" body scanners currently being tested at Hamburg's airport are constantly malfunctioning due to folds in passengers' clothing, broadcaster NDR reported on Tuesday. The public radio station said the trial of the body imaging security scanners has been plagued by serious problems. The units, which have been in use since September, are apparently unable to tell the difference between foreign objects and such things like pleated clothing. The scanners use millimetre-wave technology to produce outline images of bodies, with each scan lasting less than three seconds. While some passengers are being asked to remove thicker clothes such as jumpers,...

    At the heart of the controversy over "body scanners" is a promise: The images of our naked bodies will never be public. U.S. Marshals in a Florida Federal courthouse saved 35,000 images on their scanner. These are those images. A Gizmodo investigation has revealed 100 of the photographs saved by the Gen 2 millimeter wave scanner from Brijot Imaging Systems, Inc., obtained by a FOIA request after it was recently revealed that U.S. Marshals operating the machine in the Orlando, Florida courthouse had improperly-perhaps illegally-saved images of the scans of public servants and private citizens. We understand that it will...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – Some US scientists warned the full-body, graphic-image X-ray scanners now being used to screen passengers and airline crews at airports around the country may be unsafe. "They say the risk is minimal, but statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays," Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at Johns Hopkins University school of medicine, told AFP. "No exposure to X-ray is considered beneficial. We know X-rays are hazardous but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that...

    A Fair Park-area restaurant owner accused of beating a suspected thief last week faces a misdemeanor assault charge, police said. Michael William Liebermann, 48, co-owner of the Pizza Lounge, is accused of beating Hermilo Aguilar, 61, with a pipe and forcing him to strip naked after he tried to pay his $17.80 tab with someone else's credit card Oct. 13. "To get a person who has committed a crime and get them to where they're stripped naked is very demeaning to a person and to inflict injuries is inappropriate," said Deputy Chief Craig Miller, commander of the crimes against persons...

    AN Australian artist will ask American TV talk show queen Oprah Winfrey to strip off and have her body painted for charity when she comes Down Under in December. Sydney body painter and make-up artist Eva Rinaldi has started an international campaign to get the huge star to agree to being tastefully painted with Australian icons, such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach, while wearing only a bikini, the Mosman Daily reports. The stunt would not only be for a kick but to also raise money for a worthy cause of Winfreys choice, Rinaldi said. Winfrey will film...

    Safety campaigners have blasted a billboard campaign featuring stunning model Kelly Brook naked as a 'deadly distraction'. The new adverts, which show the busty brunette in nothing but a pair of Reebok trainers, have been launched this week, at busy junctions and traffic hotspots across the UK. But driving safety experts at the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) have slammed the 40-foot billboards, claiming Kelly's 'killer curves' are certain to cause serious or possibly even fatal accidents as excited male drivers crane their necks for a close look.

    SAN DIEGO, July 5 (UPI) -- San Diego police say an "honest mistake" led a drunken partier to get undressed and fall asleep in a condo nearly 20 miles from his own home. "This gentleman thought he had been walking into his own home, which is in Mission Valley," Police Lt. Jim Filley told The San Diego Union-Tribune. "We think it was an honest mistake." Mistake or not, the naked interloper was way off target. The condo he was found in Sunday morning was in Pacific Beach, a bar-heavy neighborhood on the other side of Interstate 5 from Mission Valley....

    A recently discovered comet is surprising skywatchers by becoming brighter than predictions had first suggested and can now be seen with the unaided eye during the next few weeks. Comet McNaught, officially catalogued as C/2009 R1, was discovered by Australian astronomer Robert McNaught last September using the using the 0.5-meter Uppsala Schmidt telescope and a CCD camera. It's the 51st comet that bears McNaught's name. Although initially an extremely faint object, enough observations of the newfound comet were made to allow Brian Marsden of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Mass., to calculate an orbit. Comet McNaught is expected to...
