Ejaculation Is Murder Every Sperm Cell Is A Life

The pro-life movement in the United States has long advocated their stance that human life begins at conception and that the human fetus is a person and therefore has a right to live. However, a new argument has taken flight over the last month that is taking the abortion debate to the next level. The variety in opinion on the issue of abortion is reflected in the diverse views of religious groups, but now pro-lifers are declaring “ejaculation is murder” and they want strict laws against the practice.

“Life begins BEFORE conception. This is why the Catholics do not believe in birth control,” said Rachel Stratt, pro-life activist. “God made men’s semen for a purpose, and you can just “waste” that purpose by gratifying yourself whenever you want to. Every time you do, you are literally killing thousands of babies! Ejaculation is murder and every sperm cell is a life!”

Stratt and her group of protesters are calling for a law that will make ejaculating for self gratification illegal in every state across the country. “Millions upon millions of innocent lives are wasted every day while men have lustful thoughts or watch those sick p*rnos on P*rnHub. We have got to put a stop to this as a human race. Save the sperm, save the children!” A petition on Change.org to stop the ‘needless wasting of sperm through self gratification’ has already received 85,000 signatures in less than three weeks. The petition needs 100,000 signatures before it is reviewed and responded by the White House. This week, 38 White House conservatives say they would pass the bill if given the opportunity to do so – all 38 of them are women.

How does HIV virus evade the immune system

Scientists have identified a human (host) protein that weakens the immune response to HIV and other viruses.

"Our study provides critical insight on a paramount issue in HIV research: Why is the body unable to mount an efficient immune response to HIV to prevent transmission?" said one of the researchers Sumit Chanda, professor and director of Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) in the US.

The findings showed that a deficiency in NLRX1 -- an intracellular protein -- reduces the replication of the HIV virus.

It also slows down the power of immune system and promotes immunity to infection.

"Importantly, we were able to show that deficiencies in NLRX1 reduce HIV replication, suggesting that the development of small molecules to modulate the innate immune response may inhibit viral transmission and promote immunity to infection," Chanda added, in the paper published  ..

Freedom 251 smartphone website users unable to book

Noida-based company Ringing Bells has launched the world's cheapest smartphone Freedom 251 priced at Rs 251. The company announced that the customers can purchase the device from its website freedom251.com starting at 6am on February 18.

However, it seems the company's website is facing glitches. We tried ordering the smartphone 10 timws but failed all the times. While early morning the website of the company was not opening, we tried again around 9am and this time while the website opened, when we clicked on the 'buy now' button, a new page opens which asked us to fill all our details. However, as soon as we clicked on 'pay now' button, the page refreshes and we are not able to order the smartphone.

we also spoke to few others who wanted to buy the smartphone and are facing same issue. Says, Nikita Singh, a student, "I have been trying to order a smartphone since morning, but have not been able too."

On specifications front, Freedom 251 features a 4-inch qHD display with 960x540 pixels resolution. The device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The smartphone offers 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage which can be expanded further up to 32GB using a microSD card.

The smartphone comes equipped with a 3.2MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front facing snapper for clicking selfies. Its connectivity attributes include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and packs a 1,450 mAh battery.

Huawei Mate S

Huawei’s Fingerprint Sense 2.0 is not your average fingerprint sensor. Although it can be used to do trivial things like unlock your phone or make mobile payments, it also allows you to control apps on the phone in new ways. For example, you can scroll through images or select particular notifications by moving your finger on the sensor. You can even trigger that perfect selfie shot with it. The new sensor resides at the back of the phone, which is the perfect spot for these types of control.

Then, there is Knuckle Sense 2.0, which enables your knuckles to crop photos or trace letters on the display for shortcuts to your favorite apps.

That stuff sounds cool, but probably the biggest news is that Force Touch will also be onboard in select versions of the phone. Apple is expected to debut this feature on the iPhone 6S, but Huawei beat Apple to it. With Force Touch, the Mate S will be able to sense how hard you are “touching” the display. Different types of force can be used for quicker zooms when looking at pictures, or to access app shortcuts. Huawei also claims it can weigh things such as oranges, though we’re not sure why you’d need that.

The Mate S has a premium feel with a metal body, and it should be comfortable to hold since it’s only 7.5mm thick and has a curved back. The Mate S sports a nano coating to protect it from small spills.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is an Android smartphone produced by Sony. As part of the Z Series, the Z3 Compact is a scaled-down version of the Sony Xperia Z3 and was unveiled during a press conference in IFA 2014 on 4 September 2014. Like the Z1 Compact, the Z3 Compact is water-proof with an IP rating of IP65 and IP68. The phone features a new display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, and has the ability to record 4K videos.

The Z3 Compact is designed with what Sony describes as "omni-balance", which is focused on balance and symmetry. Instead of a metal frame, the phone has curved edges and translucent plastic with tempered glass on the front and back. Measuring 8.6 mm thick, the device is thicker than the Z3, but is lighter, weighing at 129 g, due to its smaller size.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact features a 4.6 inch BRAVIA IPS Triluminos display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels (HD) with a pixel density of 319 ppi. With Live LED technology, it combines red and green phosphorus with blue LEDs to produce brighter and more uniform light without over-saturation, allowing the display to reproduce colors that are more vibrant and brighter.

It comes with a 20.7 megapixels camera, the same as the Z3, with an Exmor RS sensor and an ISO rating of 12800, designed to improve image quality in low light conditions. The camera features Sony G Lens, which is aimed at giving a wider frame for taking photos, and is also capable of filming in 4K.

On the inside, the Xperia Z3 Compact features a tweaked quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor (known as Snapdragon 801) clocked at 2.5 GHz with a high capacity 2600 mAh battery, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, about 11 GB of which are available for the user and supporting a microSD card.

The Z3 Compact initially ran Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Sony's custom launcher and some additional applications, such as Sony's media applications (Walkman, Album and Movies). The Z3 Compact can play PlayStation 4 games via Remote Play.
Sony began an upgrade for both the Z3 Compact and the Z3 to Android 5.0 "Lollipop" and announced upgrades for other Xperia Z devices in March 2015. Starting in July 2015, Sony released an Android 5.1.1 update for the Z2, Z3 and Z3 Compact, with the other Xperia Z devices to follow in August 2015.

The bootloader can be unlocked on both Z3 Compact and Z3 in order to install a custom ROM, but will void the warranty and delete the DRM keys, disabling the camera noise reduction feature and access to Sony Entertainment Media.

Critical reception
The Z3 Compact received generally positive reviews, with PC Advisor describing it as a great little smartphone offering everything available on the full-size Z3, with a design that is thinner and lighter with a larger display than the previous Z1 Compact. The Register praised the phone for its outstanding battery life. The Verge praised its small size while retaining the excellent battery life and performance specs of the flagship handset.

HTC One M9+

HTC’s One family is all about luxury and the continued pursuit of brilliance. The original design of the HTC One was grounded in a philosophy of “simple, crafted, and human,” driven further by our goal of creating the first beautiful, seamless, all-metal phone. This philosophy and our belief in the power of great design have been carried forward in the new HTC One M9 and M9+.

The HTC One M9+, available in China, carries on the legacy of the iconic all-metal body and includes such features as a 5.2” display, HTC BoomSound® with Dolby Audio™ surround sound, and HTC’s improved Duo Cameras.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these new features.

The HTC One M9+ comes with a 5.2” 2K display to give you a more immersive viewing experience without compromising comfort; you can still comfortably hold this phone in the palm of your hand. And the new MediaTek Helio X10 core processor ensures smoother movie playback and sharper photos.

HTC BoomSound™ with Dolby Audio
HTC’s dual front-facing speakers have been combined with 5.1 channel Dolby Audio surround sound simulation to deliver a high-definition, high-quality listening experience.

HTC Duo Cameras
The HTC One M9+ comes with a 20-megapixel Duo Camera to provide a level of detail that even the most avid phoneographers will appreciate. And the HTC UltraPixel™ front-facing camera features dynamic auto-exposure to deliver sharper, more balanced shots no matter the lighting conditions.

HTC Sense 7
Customizability is the name of the game with HTC’s Sense 7™ technology. Create personalized themes for your phone with HTC Themes and find those hidden Internet gems with an enhanced HTC BlinkFeed™. Sense 7™ also looks at the way you use your phone at home, work, or out and about, and personalizes your home screen to make sure you’re seeing the most relevant apps anytime, anywhere.

Fingerprint Authentication
A new fingerprint sensor, located on the front of the phone for easy access, helps keep your HTC One M9+ secure. Multi-directional sensors make it easy: just place your finger on the sensor in any direction to unlock your phone.

HTC One M9+ specs
The most interesting update to the HTC One M9+ specs is the chipset, which is not a Snapdragon 810, or a Snapdragon at all for that matter. Perhaps resulting from complaints of overheating, HTC has jumped ship over to MediaTek, and will use an MT6795T octa-core chipset clocked to 2.2 GHz. There will be also be 3 GB RAM onboard, and 32 GB internal storage capacity (as well as a microSD slot). Check out the full HTC One M9+ spec sheet below:

Nokia Lumia 930

The Nokia Lumia 930 is a smartphone developed by Nokia that runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. It was announced on April 2, 2014 at Microsoft Build 2014 and is scheduled to be released in June 2014.The device is aimed to be a successor to the Lumia 900 series of flagship handsets. It is succeeded by the Lumia 950 and its XL equivalent.

The Nokia Lumia Icon, which is exclusive to Verizon Wireless in the United States, is essentially a derivative of the Lumia 930. The two versions share a common design and specifications; the only differences are that the 930 is pre-loaded with the newer Windows Phone 8.1 rather than the previous-generation Windows Phone 8 Update 3 on the Icon. The 930 is also equipped with GSM radios and available as both carrier-locked and unlocked versions, as opposed to the CDMA technology used in the Icon, which is also locked to Verizon's network.

Neither it nor the Icon has the Glance feature because the AMOLED display lacks "display memory".
