Porn study fails to find a single man who hasn’t viewed X-rated material

Scientists studying the effects of pornography fell at the first hurdle – after failing to find a man who had not viewed X-rated material.

The researchers were comparing the views of men in their 20s who had never been exposed to pornography to regular users.

But Professor Simon Louis Lajeunesse, of Montreal University in Canada, said: ‘We started our research seeking men who had never consumed pornography. We couldn’t find any.’

Although hampered in its original aim, the study was then changed to examine the habits of men who regularly used porn.

It found single young men viewed such material on average for 40 minutes three times a week, compared with those in relationships, who watched it 1.7 times a week for 20 minutes.

Cancer drug reverses Alzheimer’s in mice: study

A widely available cancer drug has shown remarkable success in reversing Alzheimer’s disease in mice, raising hope of a breakthrough against incurable dementia in humans, US researchers said Thursday.

Mice treated with the drug, known as bexarotene, became rapidly smarter and the plaque in their brains that was causing their Alzheimer’s started to disappear within hours, said the research in the journal Science.

“We were shocked and amazed,” lead author Gary Landreth of the Department of Neurosciences at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in Ohio told AFP.

“Things like this had never, ever been seen before,” he said.

Half of all water-damaged mobile phones in the UK have been dropped in the toilet

It comes as no surprise that hundreds of mobile phones are damaged or destroyed by water in the UK each year.

But a new survey has revealed Britain’s embarrassing secret – that almost half of all water-damaged phones have ended up in the toilet bowl.

New research from a UK mobile phone comparison website has revealed that the loo is the most ‘popular’ location to drop a handset.

And men are three times more likely to damage their phone than women.

The study quizzed 1,937 mobile users over the age of 18 across the country, asking questions ranging from phone security and insurance to how careful people are with their must-have devices.

Public-School Teachers are Overpaid, Heritage/AEI Study Finds

A new study conducted by the Heritage Foundation and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) finds that, contrary to popular belief, public-school teachers receive total compensation more than 50 percent greater than that of private sector employees – if you take into account benefits, job security, summer vacations and other factors.

“There’s a widespread belief among people — really across the political spectrum — from laymen, to politicians, to scholars, that existing teachers are underpaid in terms of their wages and benefits,” said Jason Richwine, Ph.D., senior policy analyst for empirical Studies at the conservative Heritage Foundation, and coauthor of the study.

“The reality is that it’s just not true,” Richwine said.
