Unmarried sex could soon be illegal in Bali

Unmarried tourists having sex in Bali could be sent to jail under new laws being considered by the Indonesian parliament.

Embassies for western countries are considering sending travel warnings to tourists regarding the new laws which are expected to be passed by the end of the month as a part of the country's penal reforms.

Other laws being touted in the bill before parliament include making it illegal to criticise the president, spread communist ideology and for unmarried couples to cohabit, hide the sale of contraception from public view, and criminalising of activities such as bestiality and black magic.

However the biggest concern, particularly for tourists is the 'extra marital sex provision'.
The tourist island of Bali in particular, which receives around six million tourist arrivals a year, could see the law as a fresh subject for culture clashes.

Siri Thinks Bob Dylan Died Over 11 Years Ago ?— He’s Touring Later This Year

Back in 2017, the digital assistant reported to fans that John Travolta was dead. The algorithm-driven assistant also reported that comic legend Stan Lee had died on July 2018, months before he actually passed away.

Other cataloged mistakes include reporting Barbara Bush’s height as just four feet. The former first lady’s actual height was 5’8?.

Apple has swiftly fixed the bug that led to the error, but the incident raises plenty of questions.

Top among them: should we be relying on algorithms to dish out factual data?

Study: More Than 100,000 Cancer Cases From Toxic Chemical in US Tap Water

A toxic cocktail of chemical pollutants in U.S. drinking water could result in more than 100,000 cancer cases, according to a peer-reviewed study from Environmental Working Group – the first study to conduct a cumulative assessment of cancer risks due to 22 carcinogenic contaminants found in drinking water nationwide.

In a paper published today in the journal Heliyon, EWG scientists used a novel analytical framework that calculated the combined health impacts of carcinogens in 48,363 community water systems in the U.S. This assessment does not include water quality information for the 13.5 million American households that rely on private wells for their drinking water...

Israel: The only Jewish ghetto in the Middle East

"The results from the 18 September Israeli elections have confirmed what many of us have known for a long while: the Jewish state is an ultra-nationalist right-wing swamp. Israel is more hawkish than ever. There is not a single Jewish Israeli left-wing party. The Democratic Party is led and mentored by a war criminal. What is left of Israel’s Labour Party has very little to do with peace, harmony and reconciliation. In fact, that party is also led by a person wanted for war crimes...">>

Centuries-Old Dentures Made From Real Human Teeth

Minozzi’s team has been working at the monastery of San Francesco, in Lucca, Italy, a Tuscan city that dates back to the Etruscans. The excavations included the tombs of the Guinigi family, one of the city’s most famous and powerful. The tomb contains the remains about 100 people, buried there over the course of time, so it’s not possible to precisely date the dentures from the context in which they were found.

New sales pitch? US makes the world’s ‘finest’ anti-air systems, but sometimes they just don’t work, Pompeo explains

Perhaps fearing that Riyadh might give the US defense system a 1-star review on Yelp, Pompeo used his master statesmanship to reassure loyal customers around the world that they didn’t spend billions of dollars on something that doesn’t actually work.

How is it that, after spending “$80 million a year” on air defense, the Saudis weren’t able to track “missiles that are crossing the Persian Gulf?” a journalist traveling with the secretary of state rudely asked on Wednesday.

“We’ve seen air defense systems all around the world have mixed success. Some of the finest in the world don’t always pick things up,” Pompeo replied, dunking on all of the haters with facts and logic.

He went on to suggest that Saudi Arabia simply doesn’t have enough (US-made) “infrastructure” to stop such an attack, and that Washington will work with the Kingdom to alleviate this problem. Sounds expensive.
