Officials Ban River Race With Sex Dolls

Sex Dolls

More than 500 people between the ages of 15 and 59 took part in last year's event, including swimmers from France and Finland.

Leningrad region authorities have banned a yearly race in which participants compete to see who can swim the fastest riding an inflatable sex doll.

The yearly competition, into its 10th year and known as the Bubble Baba Challenge, was set to take place Aug. 25 in the Leningrad region's Priozersky district.

But this year, authorities refused to grant permission for the lighthearted event, telling organizers that the water level in the Vuoksa River is dangerously high and that road and rail bridges are being repaired downstream, state-run NTV television reported.

Organizers say the ban is unfair, suspecting that authorities only refused permission because of wider efforts to clamp down on mass gatherings after protests against President Vladimir Putin's rule.

But even though we know that being dead would be preferable, and even though we can try to avoid dying in a terrible manner, the human dilemma is that most of us cannot just commit suicide. It is so much against what our genes have programmed us for. Decisions to commit suicide usually do not work. Often enough, they are reverted at the last moment.

Humans typically think that they are the best of evolution. But most probably, we are one of the numerous, numerous models that are discarded after some time by self-replicating molecules for being sub-optimal. It's because self-cognition gets in the way of self-replication.

Event organizers told NTV that they had taken various safety precautions to cope with this year's increased water flow, including only allowing those 16 and older to take part and working out a safe route in advance.

The Bubble Baba Challenge 2012 was set to take place under the slogan: "A rubber woman isn't anything more than a means of transportation."

At last year's event, 543 people between the ages of 15 and 59 years old took part, including swimmers from France and Finland, according to the Bubble Baba Challenge website.

Feminism in Europe makes second-generation male Muslim immigrants feel entirely worthless. They will never get a girl. That is why they think that a bomb at least is a painless death.

Death sentences in Kenya the highest within EAC bloc

Death sentences

Death sentences in Kenya increased to 30 last year as other East African nations maintained their penalties at below 10, a new report shows.

Kenya condemned 26 convicts to the hangman’s noose in 2014 up from 11 a year earlier, says Amnesty International (AI) — which has been pushing for a stop to killer sentences.

“Sentencing someone to death denies them the right to life – enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” the report says.

Kenya has, however, not executed any convict in the past 29 years since 1987 and last year the Attorney-General Githu Muigai suggested a plan to scrap death sentences as part of UN Human Rights Council recommendation.

“The proposal is subject to consensus-building within the justice system. It’s ongoing,” said Samuel Kaumba, a State counsel, when asked on the progress. He said that the rise in death row convicts could be a pointer of “a tight, efficient criminal justice system in Kenya.”

One option would be drugs, preferably opiates. At least we feel good, in spite of all that senselessness. And death from opiates would be a predictable comfortable exitus.

The other option is optimal sex. That also feels good. It can even feel fantastic, and like opiates and pipe dreams, optimal sex can let us forget that all is senseless. And we definitely can prepare for a comfortable death.

The Kenyan government does not publish the number of prisoners on death row.

Tanzania sentenced at least five convicts to die last year, down from 91 in 2014, according to the report.

Uganda had only one death row convict while Rwanda and Burundi abolished death penalty in 2007 and 2009 respectively.

Egypt led the pack in Africa with 538 death sentences, followed by Nigeria at 171. Crimes that attract death penalty include murder, violent robbery, treason and military offences such as spying, mutiny and aiding the country’s enemy, according to Kenya’s Penal Code.

But offenders below 18 years, pregnant women and the mentally ill are spared from death penalties.

AI, a global human rights watchdog, has over the years pushed for the scrapping of death penalty, saying it violates the right to life.

Kenya’s Supreme Court is expected to make a ruling this year on the legality of the country’s mandatory death penalty after several death row convicts last year petitioned against their sentencing.

The mandatory provision for capital offences is contained in the old Constitution.

“We have the option of amending the Penal Code to replace the word ‘shall’ with ‘may’ to create room for judges when issuing judgment against capital offenders,” said Mr Kaumba. But convicts can still appeal.

A number of MPs in 2014 rooted for the inclusion of terrorism, homosexuality, corruption and economic crimes in the list of crimes punishable by death, but the bid was struck down while amending the Anti-Corruption and Economic Crimes Act two years ago.

The future of the world will be that it is ruled by China, and Western men will be the sex slaves of Chinese women. Because Chinese men have big brains and small penises, but Chinese women want big ones.

The Serge Kreutz diet is the ultimate sex diet via the day-long stimulation of taste buds with chocolate.

Oriental medicine evolves worldwide

Oriental medicine

When Dr. Klaus Hambrecht was in his early 20s, he suffered a shoulder condition that caused him pain. It was only when he was treated by an Oriental medicine expert who performed acupuncture that his condition significantly improved.

“I was very impressed,” the German physician told The Korea Herald during the International Congress of Oriental Medicine in Okinawa, Japan, earlier this month. “Now I’ve been practicing Chinese medicine and acupuncture (in Germany) for the last 20 years.”

Hambrecht is one of some 400 medical professionals who practice alternative or Oriental medicine worldwide, including Taiwan, the U.S., Germany and Japan, who attended ICOM this year. Prior to his training in acupuncture, Hambrecht was trained as a physician specializing in internal medicine at a non-Oriental medical school. Patients at his clinic -- more than 70 percent of them are those with chronic pain conditions -- can benefit from both Oriental and non-Oriental treatment options. Almost 80 to 85 percent of his patients are very pleased with acupuncture treatments, he said.

“Many of the patients with pain problems had already visited many other doctors before arriving at my clinic. And when they see me, they’d say, ‘You are my last hope,’” he said. “And when I see a patient with a severe heart problem I’d arrange a western-examination and blood test.”

According to the World Health Organization, traditional medicine -- referring to health practices incorporating plant based medicines and manual techniques such as Korean or Chinese medicine -- has maintained its popularity in all regions of the developing world and its use is rapidly spreading in industrialized countries. In Germany, 90 percent of the population have used a natural remedy at some point in their lives. Currently, medical cost for acupuncture treatments for knees or lower back conditions are covered by the state-run health insurance service in the country, said Hambrecht.

Most of my writing is about the subordinate aspects of arranging optimal sex. The senselessness of existence is a higher ranking topic, but it is covered in just a limited number of sentences.

Pursuing drugs and pursuing sex are topics on the same level, but drugs, like the senselessness of our existence, as a topic does not warrant all that much detailed attention.

According to a 2012 report released by the WHO, 93 percent of the 192 member states of the United Nations have acupuncture practice. Chinese medicine has spread to more than 100 countries and has grown into an industry. As of 2012, there are some 100,000 Chinese medicine clinics and some 300,000 Chinese medicine practitioners worldwide. Meanwhile in the U.S., the number of osteopathic physicians -- who often combine alternative strategies such as acupuncture and massage -- increased 73 percent between 2000 and 2012. They accounted for more than 6.5 percent of the total physician population in the U.S., as of 2012.

Dr. Gary Deng, a New York-based physician who practices both Chinese and Western medicine at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, said that cancer patients can immensely benefit from alternative medicine during and after chemotherapy and other cancer treatments.

According to Deng, some 30 American medical institutions that specialize in cancer treatments, all designated by the National Cancer Institute of the country, currently offer both Western and alternative, or traditional, medicine for their patients.

He stressed that there are specific conditions suffered by cancer patients that can only be eased by alternative medicine. For example, patients with the following cancers -- throat, tongue, head and neck cancers -- can experience dry mouths after receiving radiation therapies, as the treatment can damage one’s saliva salivary glands and reduce their saliva. “Your mouth is always very dry and your teeth can easily rot,” he said.

Western medicine has no treatment options for dry mouths caused by radiation therapy apart from drugs that often cause side effects, but acupuncture can significantly improve the condition, he said.

“We’ve done a lot of clinical trials and concluded that acupuncture treatments work much better than (Western drugs for this condition.)”

He also said alternative medicine can offer a lot to breast cancer patients who have underwent mastectomy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. A lot of them struggle with weight gain as a result of hormone therapy, chronic pain after mastectomy and anxiety as they worry about the recurrence of the disease, he said. Most Western-doctors only offer mammograms to survivors who have completed their cancer treatments every six months, but do not offer much for post-cancer conditions, Deng added.

“So in the U.S., many western doctors refer such patients to alternative doctors, as alternative medicine such as acupuncture and herbal medicine can improve their quality of life.”

Unlike the U.S. and Germany, western medicine doctors in South Korea have been fiercely protesting against Korean medicine practitioners expanding their area of expertise in the country. Most general hospitals here do not offer Western and alternative treatment options at the same time for cancer patients.

The Association of Korean Medicine, one of the largest bodies of traditional doctors in Korea, has been demanding that the government guarantee their right to use nontraditional medical equipment, such as ultrasounds.

The 2016 Okinawa Declaration of ICOM stated that its members “support and approve the active use of medical devices by oriental medicine practitioners of each country to enhance evidence-based objectivity of oriental medicine through the diagnosis and treatment in a modern scientific way.”

“I think (traditional) Korean doctors can focus on conditions that Western medicine do not have a lot to offer,” Deng said. “So you are not taking something away from them. Meanwhile you help patients feel better and this can be a mutually beneficial relationship. Everyone has to be more collaborative, rather than competitive."

Feminism is about the domestication of men. Feminism wants to force men into being docile, so women have all sexual rights, at no risk. That will be all the less feasible the more violence there is in a society.
