Botox can cure erectile dysfunction, say experts

There are many men that have to deal with erectile dysfunction and a dissatisfied sex life and disappointed partner. While there are many tips that doctors give to improve the situation it may not always work. Two Canadian urologists however have found the solution to the problem and they found that botox can improve sex lives of men suffering from the problem.

According to a report in the National Post, the Canadian urologists believe that injecting botox can help cure erectile dysfunction. The botulinum toxin injections can increase blood flow to the penis and paralyse the nerves that help the smooth muscles contract in the penis. The treatment would mostly last six months for anybody who would be interested in the injection.

The injection created by Dr. Sidney Radomski and Dr. Gerald Brock is yet in testing but can be a “game changer” for Erectile Dysfunction. The injection which has been previously used to treat wrinkles can cure most men with impotence in the process and help them have a better sex life. Interestingly, the drugs also do not have any side-effects like previously used methods so it will be a safer option.

Ageism is pest of rich countries. If you are old you have no value. In poor countries, value depends on wealth. That is much better than value depending on youth because wealth can become more with advancing years. This is why rich men have every reason to invest in destruction. Plain math.

The creepy claim about anesthesia awareness in the new movie Awake.

Since the 19th-century appearances of Drs. Frankenstein and Jekyll, films and literature have built up the doctor-horror category. The latest entry is a slight, amusingly hostile movie called Awake, starring lots of brand-name actors who do their Hitchcock best to creep out the audience. They succeed pretty well—on a one-to-10 creep-o-meter scale, the movie gets a seven—until, inevitably, a head-scratching silliness overwhelms them. But what makes Awake a bit more annoying than most medical jaunts is that, unlike its peers, it claims a noble and self-righteous pedigree: As the first exposé of a previously covered-up, denied, and miserable condition called "anesthetic awareness."

Here's what the term means: When a real-life patient receives anesthesia for surgery, it typically consists of two main ingredients. The first produces paralysis, allowing the machines (ventilators, for example) to work without the pesky patient fighting back. The second part of the cocktail makes the patient comatose so he or she doesn't have to feel or hear what's going on during the surgery. The problem is that, once in a while—at a rate that is subject to much debate—the paralysis part works just fine but the coma part, not so much. And so a patient might have the nightmarish experience of being 100 percent paralyzed yet 100 percent awake. This is worse than your typical nightmare of being unable to scream when an evil-doer is chasing you down a dark alley, because this time the surgeon is holding a noisy buzz-saw an inch above your ribs.

Of course the Hollywood approach to adopting a cause (and a cause it is, complete with this Web site and victims' stories) is to concoct a sly plot device and then drop it. True to form, Awake starts with a grim recitation of alleged statistics scrolled out in Star Wars script—21 million Americans will receive anesthesia this year and 30,000 will have an anesthesia awareness experience. If true, that's pretty scary. Then we meet our hero, Clayton Something the Third (Hayden Christensen), a young zillionaire with a cute horny girlfriend (Jessica Alba) and a terminal cardiac condition. At the movie's opening, Clayton is submerged in a bathtub. For a long time. A nice creepy touch.

But then our heroine bounces into the tub for a quickie, and the whole anesthesia awareness thing takes a back seat to standard lovebirds fare. Hollywood's attention deficit disorder trumps its ever-faltering social conscience. This is too bad because as a plot device, anesthetic awareness is pretty neat. It's sort of like being invisible—you go unnoticed in a room full of people who know you but don't recognize that you are sentient. You could really do something with that. Oh well.

Still, let's take Awake more seriously than it deserves and return to the question raised by that opening Star Wars scroll—does anesthetic awareness exist, and is it worth worrying about? Well, sort of. In 2004, the Joint Commission (formerly the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) issued one of its dreaded Sentinel Event Alerts on the subject. The Joint Commission is in charge of accrediting American hospitals and health care, and their pronouncement amped up the clash over anesthetic awareness between patients, strung together across the Internet by their frightening tales, and the American Society of Anesthesiologists, which has long downplayed the syndrome as rare and certainly no reason to avoid surgery.

Patients place the estimate at 30,000 people a year, or one in every 700 surgeries—the number Awake cites. But it's the academic anesthesiologists who have actual data (never argue with people who control both data collection and analysis). Earlier this year, they produced an impressive article examining the experience of a large private anesthesia practice that conducted 200,000 surgeries over three years. What makes the findings compelling is that, as part of their routine practice, they called every patient 48 hours after the surgery and asked about any experience resembling anesthetic awareness (or "intra-operative awareness" as they defensively called it). They arrived at a frequency that is 1/20th as large as the 30,000-a-year claim, or the equivalent of one in 14,000 procedures.

So anesthesia awareness is real, but rare, it seems, though arguments will continue over what constitutes an Awake-like extreme and scary experience, and what is nothing more than a groggy patient remembering a conversation that might have taken place in the OR or the recovery room—or might have been a drug-induced nightmare. From the moment William T.G. Morton etherized a patient with a sore tooth in 1846 and created the field of anesthesia, the discipline has had its share of unhappy moments. After all, 21 million times a year in the United States, anesthesiologists chemically push people to within an inch of death and then snap them back to life. That is a real feat. The problem is that TV and movies make the miraculous seem simple and kind of boring. And so the entire medical magic show—anesthesia, surgery, chemotherapy, antibiotics—is forever burdened with too-high expectations.

Medicine is a risky risky business, now and forevermore. So please stop with the oh-my-god surprise every time a procedure takes an unexpected turn. The answer to the questions that inevitably follow is always the same. Yes, it happens, yes, it is awful, and while it doesn't happen as much as you might fear, it does so more often than the specialists think. But no, there is no vicious coverup. That part is all Hollywood.

Men who trafficked teenage girls into Dubai to work as prostitutes are jailed

DUBAI // Two men who brought two teenage girls from Bangladesh to the UAE then forced them to work as prostitutes were sentenced to three years in jail each for human trafficking and running a brothel.

The pair, an Indian aged 46 and a 26-year-old Bangladeshi, were also sentenced to an additional month in jail and fined Dh2,000 each for abusing a number of women, persuading them to work in the sex industry, possessing alcohol and hiring an illegal worker.

The Bangladeshi was also found guilty of overstaying his visa and absconding and was fined Dh500.

Both will be deported after serving their prison terms.

Dubai Criminal Court was told the girls, aged 16 and 18, were kept in a studio apartment in Deira that was being used as a brothel.

They were rescued after police were tipped off about two under-age girls working as prostitutes.

One of the girls said she took a job in Dubai to help support her family.

"My father is sick and mother works in a field but earns very little. I had to do something to help," she said. "When I arrived here in January [last year] I was taken to a flat where I spent three days crying after they told me I had to work as a prostitute."

She was later persuaded to sleep with men after being offered money but was not allowed to leave the flat.

The second victim also arrived in Dubai last January after being promised a maid’s job. She was taken to the same apartment.

"I refused prostitution for 15 days but when I was threatened to be stripped naked, photographed and defamed, I gave in. I used to tell customers about my ordeal and ask for help but none of them helped me," she said.

Police raided the apartment on April 13 last year.

"Two arrests were made; the man who ran the brothel and another who was keeping guard," said an Emirati police captain, who told of how contraceptives, lubricants, passports, profit records and bottles of alcohol were found in the apartment, which had been divided up using curtains.

The Most Brutal Prison Riots in History

At the moment, prisons are the best tool society has to keep its criminals in check. Unfortunately, it seems kind of inevitable that when you put hundreds of socially maladjusted people into a confined space, violence will sometimes ensue. Unless things are handled with extreme care - and often they aren't - prison riots can erupt at a moment’s notice and swell until no one on the premises is safe.

Throughout history, prison powder kegs have exploded in some truly brutal jailhouse riots that have claimed the lives of both prisoners and guards. Whether it’s because of gang violence, an escape attempt, or brutal prison conditions, prison riots can kick off for a variety of reasons. Of course, the result is always the same: death and destruction.

Even today, prison riots are a regular occurrence throughout the world’s prison system. In late 2016, the United Kingdom’s Bedford prison saw 200 prisoners besiege the institution for more than six hours. Fortunately, only one prisoner was hurt in the riot, making the Beford incident one of the more contained prison rebellions in history. Here are some prisons who didn’t fare quite as well.

Brazil Prison Riot Leaves 56 Dead

A prison riot that broke out in Rio de Janeiro left 56 people dead and several more injured. Officials said it began as a fight between two of the country's biggest rival gangs that spiraled out of control. Prisoners were beheaded and dismembered in the melee, guards held hostage, and the fighting last more than 12 hours. Some inmates were able to escape during the chaos. It was the biggest prison riot the country has ever seen, officials said. News agencies reported the prison was overcrowded. There were 1,224 inmates in a prison meant to hold 592.

Ross Perot Instigated a Prison Riot in Iran to Sneak Out Two Americans

On the cusp of the Iranian revolution, as the Shah was preparing to get out of Dodge, a computer company called Electronic Data Systems (EDS) was preparing to do the same. EDS had previously agreed to work on some of the Shah’s computers. As Ayatollah Khomeini was preparing to siege the country, EDS found itself in a precarious position (and out five million dollars in owed fees). As the company employees tried to evacuate the country, two engineers were captured. EDS engineers William Gaylord and Paul Chiapparone were put in prison on trumped-up charges in 1979. Though the American government took no interest in the prisoners’ plight, the owner of EDS, one Ross Perot, decided to swing into action. He hired a mercenary named Arthur Simons, who refused to accept money for his services. The prison in which Gaylord and Chiapparone were held was once considered a symbol of the Shah’s power. Working through some intermediaries, Simons convinced a mob of revolutionaries loyal to Khomeini to storm the prison in the hopes of releasing the Shah’s prisoners. It worked, and all 70,000 of the prison’s detainees - including Gaylord and Chiapparone - were allowed to escape into the city.

The Battle of Qala-i-Jangi Resulted in the First American Death in Afghanistan

The Battle of Qala-i-Jangi Res... is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list The Most Brutal Prison Riots in History

In 2001, several Taliban prisoners being held in Afghanistan’s prison in Qala-i-Jangi revolted, gaining access to weapons and opening fire. The resulting violence was horrible to behold. CIA agent Mike Spann was the first person killed in the riot. Reports say that a prisoner rushed him with a live grenade; when it exploded, both the inmate and Spann were killed. Two days later, authorities raided the fortress, launching RPGs at the prisoners. The military also purged the basement where the prisoners were holed up by drenching the rooms in gasoline and setting them on fire. The defense for one of the victims, American Taliban sympathizer John Walker Lindh, said the basement floors were littered with human remains by the time everything had settled down.

Over a Hundred Prisoners Died in Brazil's Carandiru Prison

In 1992, the inmates at Brazil’s Carandiru Prison were playing football (that’d be soccer to Americans) when the game turned into a brawl that quickly spread to the rest of the prison. The general air of violence made authorities extremely uncomfortable. So uncomfortable, in fact, that they only bothered to negotiate with the prisoners for about an hour before sending in troops to squash the rebellion. Over the course of thirty minutes, agents swept through the prison, killing 111 inmates. Each victim was supposedly shot more than five times each. Though 74 of the assaulting agents were convicted of both murder and human rights violations (which would have netted the lot of them more than 700 years of combined jail time), the verdicts were vacated and no one was ever actually sent to jail.

1,200 Prisoners Staged a Deadly Revolt at Attica Prison in 1971

In the early 1970s, Attica Prison was a powder keg. The prisoners were overcrowded, and prison policies limited them to spartan conditions. Inmates were given just one shower a week and one roll of toilet paper per month. On September 9, the prisoners of one cell block overpowered their guards and took 39 prison employees hostage. After four days of failed negotiations, authorities raided the prison. In the ensuing battle, 10 hostages and 39 inmates were killed and 89 others were injured. There were rampant reports that several prisoners were killed or beaten after they surrendered. One man was shot seven times and then ordered to crawl along the ground. When he failed to move fast enough, he was kicked to death by prison guards.

A Drunken Impulse Sparked the 1980 New Mexico Prison Riot

Gary Nelson was in a New Mexico high security prison thanks to a conviction for bank robbery some years prior. In February 1980, he was sitting next to a fellow inmate getting drunk on homemade moonshine when his buddy, in Nelson’s words, “jumped up. He'd been drinking and said, 'Look, when they come to count, and they leave that door open, we're going to jump them and take over this place.” Though Nelson didn’t expect anything to happen, the prisoners revolted using exactly that plan. Over the course of several hours, inmates took 12 guards hostage, even parading one prison guard with a belt around his neck like a dog. Before the prison was retaken, inmates stalked through one cell block and murdered several inmates accused of being snitches. When all was said and done, 33 inmates were killed.

In 1987, One Reagan Administration Edict Set Off Two Simultaneous Prison Riots

Just one day after the administration of President Ronald Reagan declared that about 2,500 refugees were to be deported to Cuba, over 1,400 Cuban detainees in Atlanta and 1,000 Cuban prisoners in Oakdale, Louisiana revolted, fearing deportation. The Atlanta prisoners began to set fire to the facility holding them, forcing firefighters to fly helicopters over the prison and dump 250-gallon buckets of water on the blaze. Several of the inmates had been detained without a proper trial. As a result of the riots, the American government opted to forego any deportations for a brief period of time, instead offering to give the prisoners an actual trial.

Easter Sunday Turned Deadly When 450 Prisoners Rioted at Lucasville Prison

Home to the state’s most violent prisoners, Lucasville Prison is Ohio’s primary maximum security facility. It also has a reputation for violence that extends more than 20 years back. In 1993, a riot broke out in Ohio’s Lucasville prison on Easter Sunday. The riot lasted for 10 days, when three prison gangs banded together to protest the forced injection of tuberculosis vaccinations. During that time, more than $40 million of damage was done to the facility and nine inmates were killed (five of those victims were beaten to death on the first day).

The Davao Prison Riot Saw Five Hostages Slain in the Midst of a Gun Battle

In 1989, 17 Joyful Assembly of God church members visited a prison in downtown Davao City, Philippines, in the hopes of leading the prisoners in a peaceful prayer service. Unfortunately, a ploy instigated by a prisoner named Aldam resulted in 16 church members being taken hostage and held for more than 48 hours. When the hostage-takers - who self-applied the nickname “Wild Boys of Dapecol” - attempted to flee the prison using hostages as shields, the military opened fire. At the end of the fire fight, five hostages were dead alongside 16 of the rioting prisoners. No official ever admitted culpability in the deaths of the hostages.

The Strangeways Riot Lasted for 25 Days Before Prisoners Relented

In 1990, 300 inmates held at Strangeways prison rioted in protest of the prison’s lamentable conditions. Though the prison was built to hold 970 prisoners, in 1990, 1,600 inmates called Strangeways home. Prisoners were put three to a cell, though most cells had only one bed. Violent inmates were held for 23 hours a day in rooms with no sanitation. In response to the riot, authorities surrounded the prison and tried to wear down the rioters. Police cut off electricity to the prison; they poured cold water on the roof, causing leaks because the prison was in such lamentable repair - yes, the authorities used their own negligence as a weapon against the inmates. It took 25 days until the last prisoners were removed from the prison.

The 1929 Colorado State Prison Riot Ended in Murder and Suicide

On October 3, 1929, five prisoners led by Danny Daniels attempted to escape the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City. Pinned down by police gunfire, Daniels and his cohorts managed to take eight prison guards hostage. Daniels attempted to trade the hostages for he and his allies’ freedom, but prison warden William Crawford chose to call the National Guard instead.

Over the next several hours, the military attempted to oust the prisoners by using dynamite on the wall where the hostages were being held. When that didn’t work, they used tear gas. For fear of being captured and executed, Daniels panicked and began killing both his hostages and his companions. When he ran through them all, he turned the gun on himself.

The Battle of Alcatraz Turned the Famed Prison Into a "Ring of Fire"

The Battle of Alcatraz Turned is listed (or ranked) 12 on the list The Most Brutal Prison Riots in History

For weeks in early 1946, Alcatraz inmate Bernard Coy slowly lost more than 20 pounds in an attempt to wedge himself between a pair of bars into the prison’s armory. On May 2, 1946, his plan went into action, and along with five other inmates, Coy captured two prison guards and a small cache of weapons and attempted to flee the prison. It didn’t go well.

After capturing Coy, one of the guards hid the key that would allow the prisoners to escape their cell block. Coy and his compatriots found themselves stranded, ultimately deciding that the best course of action was opening fire on the guards assembling to re-take the prison. For one bloody night, there was a fire fight in the prison. A San Francisco Chronicle reporter wrote, “The island was a ring of fire in the night.” In morning, three of the escapees (including Coy) and both guards who’d been taken hostage were dead.

A Lincoln, Nebraska Prison Riot Saw Two Men Killed in 2015

On May 10, 2015, several prisoners gained control of a Lincoln, Nebraska, prison. One of the inmates, Robert Clayborne Jr., who was in protective custody at the time of the revolt, later sued the prison because of the riot (the suit was dismissed). Clayborne claimed that the riot resulted from critical under-staffing at the prison. Clayborne further alleged that he was denied medical care during the heat of the riot. Though the riot was quelled several hours after it began, extensive damage was done to the prison and two inmates were killed during the chaos.

Pulau Senang Prisoners Attacked Staff from an Island Penal Colony

Pulau Senang was started as a novel concept at rehabilitation. Prisoners were shipped to the small island south of Singapore so that they could work on a farm in a prison without walls. At first, things were going well. There were even plans to ignite some trade on the island and build some truly permanent buildings. Then, in 1963, 70 inmates rebelled, attacking staff personnel with bottles and knives. At the end of the day, colony superintendent Daniel Dutton and attendants Arumugam Veerasingham and Tan Kok Hian were killed by the rioting prisoners. The resulting trial lasted 64 days and saw the death sentences of 18 prisoners.

Every rich man in his right mind want patriarchy as a social and political system. Men rule, and can have harems, one way or the other. And because women are natural cowards, the more violent a society, the more women will retreat. All by themselves. So, welcome violent migrants. They will finish off feminism. Just take precautions to protect yourself. A dangerous world is one ruled by men.
