  • Zika, a Formidable Enemy, Attacks and Destroys Parts of Babies’ Brains

    The images tell a heartbreaking story: Zika’s calamitous attack on the brains of babies — as seen from the inside. With a macabre catalog of brain scans and ultrasound pictures, a new study details the devastation done to 45 Brazilian babies whose mothers were infected with Zika during pregnancy. The study, published Tuesday in the journal Radiology, is the most comprehensive collection of such images so far, and it reveals a virus that can launch assaults beyond microcephaly, the condition of unusually small heads that has become the sinister signature of Zika. Most of the babies in the study were...
  • Donald Trump is not upset Melania’s nude photos surfaced

    08/01/2016 8:12:33 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 102 replies
    Donald Trump’s campaign on Sunday defended his wife’s old nude photos as an artful “celebration of the human body” and added that the Republican presidential nominee isn’t upset by their publication in The Post. Trump spokesman Jason Miller noted that the shots of Melania Trump were taken before the couple knew each other. “They’re a celebration of the human body as art, and [there’s] nothing to be embarrassed about with the photos. She’s a beautiful woman,” Miller told CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” In March, Trump retweeted an unflattering photo of rival Sen. Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, in response to a pro-Cruz...
  • NY Post publishes X-rated photos of Melania Trump–then Obama’s mom is brought into it

    The New York Post thought it had something hot on its hands when it published photos of Melania Trump posing nude for a now-defunct French men’s magazine. But in answer to the Post’s headline, “Menalia Trump like you’ve never seen her before,” someone came up with something better — photos of President Obama’s own mother posing in her birthday suit. The photos of Trump’s future spouse were taken long before the two had even met. Nonetheless The Post wrote, “Donald Trump thinks his wife will be a model first lady — and here’s the proof,” and promoted the piece on...

    What is the Institute? A good question. It began as a repository for odd things I scanned - and by “scanned,” I mean I took pictures with a video camera, and used a frame grabber to get the images. Cheap scanners didn’t exist. As time went on, anything that was “vintage” or “retro” and could be gently mocked went into the Institute.

    ISLAMABAD - Tashfeen Malik - who the FBI says pledged allegiance on Facebook to the Islamic State before helping her husband kill 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif. - was born in Saudi Arabia to a middle-class Pakistani family mainly associated with agriculture or private businesses. Her father, Gulzak Malik, previously lived in the Karor Lal Esan locality of District Layyah in Pakistan's tumultuous Southern Punjab province.

    A US consulate employee stationed abroad had a child taken from his care because officials feared the minor was in danger following systematic abuse and neglect, Daily Mail Online has leaned. Documents have exposed how the International Trade Administration staff member subjected the minor to shocking care while working abroad and living in a house owned by the government. An investigation found the child was routinely underfed and encouraged to take their clothes off in the consulate residence so the man could allegedly take pictures of them naked. At the time the unidentified employee also harassed female colleagues during his...

    American soldiers, American civilians, and other innocent people are going to die because Pres. Barack Obama wants to release photographs of prisoner abuse. Note: I said, “wants to release” — not “has to release,” or “is being forced to release,” or “will comply with court orders by releasing.” The photos, quite likely thousands of them, will be released because the president wants them released. Any other description of the situation is a dodge. If President Obama wanted to refrain from releasing these photos in order to protect the military forces he commands or promote the security of Americans — his...

    Today marks the 25 year anniversary of Adobe Photoshop being launched and changing the way we see the world. Here’s a look at how Photoshop started and how far it has come in the past two-and-a-half decades. The birth of the software can be traced back to 1987, when developer Thomas Knoll created a simple pixel imaging program called Display. It was able to display grayscale photos on a black-and-white monitor.

    An obscure group duped Senator Inhofe’s office. The delegation’s U.S. leader says it was a “misunderstanding. ”WASHINGTON — A delegation consisting of Ukrainian members of parliament, a paramilitary leader, and one Georgetown professor gave a senator's office photos purportedly of the Russian military invading Ukraine that were later debunked. Several photos allegedly showing the Russian military in eastern Ukraine that ran on the Washington Free Beacon on Tuesday were quickly shown to actually be photos from other conflicts, some from years earlier.

    An Oregon judge has acquitted a 61-year-old man who admitted taking photographs up the skirt of a 13-year-old girl as she shopped at a Target store in suburban Portland, lawyers in the case said Friday. Washington County Circuit Court Judge Eric Butterfield ruled on Thursday that Patrick Buono did not break the law when he surreptitiously took the pictures of the girl in January 2013, said his defense attorney Mark Lawrence. "He did not deny it and he feels real bad about it too, by the way," Lawrence said. The girl did not notice his actions, Lawrence said, but another...

About half the rolls were labeled with various location names (i.e. Boston Harbor, Lucky Strike Beach, LaHavre Harbor). “I know nothing about who shot the film or who it...

    WASHINGTON -- The Justice Department is investigating whether Guantanamo Bay detainees charged with roles in the Sept. 11 attacks were improperly given photos of CIA officers or contractors, according to a person familiar with the investigation. The investigation, headed by the Justice Department's counterespionage chief, John Dion, is trying to determine if military lawyers defending the detainees divulged classified information or compromised covert CIA officers, according to the person, who was not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke only on condition of anonymity. It is a violation of federal law to identify CIA covert personnel, and it is a...

Will they have a family of their own? What will be their greatest highs? What will be their darkest lows? Maybe it’s because most of us realize that we haven’t used our own potential to its fullest extent. The saints are far from perfect, but they are individuals whom the Church holds up as examples of people who truly followed after Christ, lived in God’s grace, and demonstrated heroic virtue.

Slater, citing royalty losses, has tried to have the photograph removed from the site. The Telegraph reports: The Gloucestershire-based photographer now claims that the decision is jeopardising his income as anyone can take the image and publish it for free, without having to pay him a royalty. He complained...

    SNIP The official photographs the White House hands out are but visual news releases. Taken by government employees (mostly former photojournalists), they are well composed, compelling and even intimate glimpses of presidential life. They also show the president in the best possible light, as you’d expect from an administration highly conscious of the power of the image at a time of instant sharing of photos and videos. By no stretch of the imagination are these images journalism. Rather, they propagate an idealized portrayal of events on Pennsylvania Avenue. If you take this practice to its logical conclusion, why have news...
