States call pornography a public health crisis
From Idaho to Pennsylvania, lawmakers in more than a dozen states have adopted resolutions declaring pornography a public health crisis.
This week the Arizona Senate approved a measure urging the state to prevent exposure and addiction to porn, drawing criticism from some experts who say the approach is misguided and poses risks.
At least one legislative chamber has adopted a similar measure in 15 states, including South Dakota, Tennessee, Florida and Virginia, and the Republican Party added it to its national platform in 2016.
The Montana legislature has resolved that pornography constitutes a public health crisis, becoming the latest in a handful of states that have acknowledged its harmful effects on society.
Lawmakers in the state House of representatives in Helena passed the resolutionWednesday.
The Montana resolution notes that porn contributes to the hypersexualization of teens and prepubescent children, that what was once known as "hard core" content is now considered mainstream, and that early exposure is leading to low self-esteem and body image disorders in young people. It also explains that porn treats women as objects and products for consumers' use, and that girls are taught to be used and boys taught to be the users.

White men in America have a lot of advantages and yet we are dying by suicide in record numbers. The expectation for success is crushing
Last month, a reliable family guy with a big laugh became a news story when he didn’t show up for work. A week later, he was found dead of what authorities are confident was a suicide.
It’s not uncommon. Like people I’ve known who have taken their lives, he was a hardworking middle-aged white guy with a solid track record — exactly the kind of American most likely to die by suicide.
Each case is heartbreaking and haunting.
The number of cases in a nearly eight-month-old epidemic of Ebola in eastern DR Congo now exceeds 1,000, almost two-thirds of whom have died, the health ministry said late Sunday.
"The accumulated number of cases is 1,009," of which 629 cases were fatal, it said.
The outbreak was first recorded in North Kivu province on August 1, and then spread to neighbouring Ituri province.
Its toll is the second deadliest in the history of Ebola, after an epidemic in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone in 2014-6 that claimed 11,308 lives, according to the website of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Ebola virus disease was first discovered in 1974 in a village near the Democratic Republic of Congo's Ebola River, which gave the disease its name.
Efforts to contain the latest outbreak, the 10th in the DRC's history, have been hampered by poor security in the highly unstable east, which teems with militia groups.
As the cameras rolled on President Trump's campaign rally for GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis in Florida on Tuesday night, a peculiar sign appeared in view.
"We are Q."
Journalists at the event noted multiple attendees carrying signs and wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the name "QAnon."
The shirts and signs are references to a conspiracy theory growing increasingly popular among those on the far-right — and a conspiracy theory about which the White House fielded a question from the media on Wednesday.

Walmart recently posted a video ad on its Facebook page of two homosexuals on a blind date. Unfortunately, the retail giant has decided to cave and be politically correct instead of remaining neutral on controversial issues. Founder, Sam Walton, would have never approved of this decision to promote the homosexual agenda.

The investigation has brought renewed attention to sex trafficking and prostitution, a problem that remains overlooked and misunderstood by many Americans, experts say
PHOENIX – Citing concerns about the proliferation of erotic images online and their "toxic" effect on behavior, Arizona lawmakers are pushing to declare pornography a public health crisis.
Mark Andrew Kernan, 57, who resides at Yardley Commons on Main Street, was arraigned Wednesday on felony charges including prostitution, possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine and criminal use of a communication facility.
Authorities said it is believed Kernan has used his residence for prostitution, posting online at doublelist.com for “erotic male massages” since at least December 2017. Weintraub also said Kernan would provide those who answered those ads with drugs.
