Top 10 Surprising Things That Were Invented by Women

monopoly-women

Women are responsible for many inventions we use in our everyday life. Some of them will surprise you. Women invented even the very male items. Unfortunately, it was not easy for them to attain the society recognition. Their stories are full of intrigues, scandals, and fraud. These women made a great contribution to a humanity development, but they had to fight for their acceptance. We should be grateful for these remarkable creations. So, let’s see these impressive stories.

Scotland opens its doors for first refugees

SCOTLAND is ready to welcome around one-third of all Syrian refugees set to arrive in the UK before Christmas – but last night campaigners said Westminster must do more.

Europe is in the grip of the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War, with millions of people fleeing conflict now scattered in camps across Europe and the Middle East and millions more walking to safety in the West.

The UK Government has repeatedly refused to open its doors to what David Cameron labelled “swarms” of migrants and will instead accept only a limited number of displaced Syrians.

Around 20,000 refugees from camps surrounding the war-torn country will be allowed in over a five-year period. Yesterday the Scottish Government announced that it will resettle one-third of the 1,000 Syrians set to arrive in the UK by Christmas.

Positive Action in Housing (PAIH), which works on the front line of the refugee crisis by raising funds and providing support, advocacy and shelter, praised the Scottish Government’s “humanitarian” response.

However, director Robina Qureshi said the small numbers shame the UK and insisted Westminster must change.

Around 2,200 people from around the UK have now signed up to the PAIH refugee host scheme, offering to open their homes to those in need.

Heartbreaking: Here’s What A U.S Soldier Said When Asked To Justify The War On Terror by Sophie McAdam

“You grew up wanting so bad to be Luke Skywalker, but you realize that you were basically a Stormtrooper, a faceless, nameless rifleman, carrying a spear for empire, and you start to accept the startlingly obvious truth that these are people like you.”

Have you heard of ASMR or also called “The Brain Orgasm”

AMSR is a phenomenon that some people get when hearing certain noises and are encouraged to feel textures,listen to a soothing voice …….

Here is a Wiki Snippet :

Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a neologism for a perceptual phenomenon characterized as a distinct, pleasurable tingling sensation in the head, scalp, back, or peripheral regions of the body in response to visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, or cognitive stimuli. The nature and classification of the ASMR phenomenon is controversial,[1] with much anecdotal evidence of the phenomenon but little or no scientific explanation or verified data.[2]

Cameron ‘vote of no confidence’ petition hits 100k, may be debated in parliament! (It seems the rich might be rethinking starving the revolting poor in case they revolt indeed.)

A petition calling for a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister David Cameron could soon be debated in parliament after exceeding the required 100,000 signatures.

As of Friday afternoon, a total of 121,790 people have signed the online petition, which accuses Cameron of causing “devastation for the poorest in society” since he took office five years ago.

We cannot afford another five years of Tory rule, with the recent welfare reform that will cause nothing but immense poverty in the UK,” the petition says.

When Cameron became prime minister in 2010, he introduced the e-petition initiative to boost transparency and democratic participation.

If petitions on the parliamentary website secure 100,000 signatures, MPs are obliged to hold a debate on the subjects raised.

DWP Staff Pocketed Almost Half Of A £90million Bureaucrat ‘Bonus Bonanza’ Paid Out By The Government Last Year

IAIN DUNCAN SMITH

David Cameron has been accused of overseeing a “bonus bonanza” after Whitehall bureaucrats pocketed more than £90million in pay-outs last year.

Figures obtained by The Huffington Post UK show that in the year to April, 12 Government departments forked out £89.4million in bonuses to staff.

The most rewarding was the Department for Work and Pensions, which handed out £42.1million in bonuses to its staff – £38.1million of which went to Senior Civil Servants.

The figures only relate to 12 out of the 20 Government departments, meaning the total bonus figure could soar to almost £140million if the average pay out of almost £7million per department continues.

Labour MP Andrew Gwynne, who uncovered the figures, said: “For all his talk of belt-tightening, these figures show that David Cameron is happy to splash the cash on bonuses.

“Whilst the NHS is in crisis, this bonus bonanza would pay for thousands of new nurses.”

The Chinese Village of Long-Haired Rapunzels

Huangluo2

By 2019, the global shampoo market is expected to reach an estimated value of $25.73 billion. But deep in the mountains of southern China’s Guangxi province, the women of Huangluo Village won’t be contributing a single dime to the industry– because apparently, it’s not worth it … (sorry L’Oréal).

TalkTalk hack ‘affected 157,000 customers’ BBC news report!

TalkTalk

TalkTalk has given more details of the cyber-attack on its website, saying nearly 157,000 of its customers’ personal details were accessed.

More than 15,600 bank account numbers and sort codes were stolen, the company said.

Customers should continue to protect themselves from scam phone calls and emails, TalkTalk added.

This week police released a 16-year-old boy on bail who was the fourth person arrested in connection with the hack.

Since news of the cyber-attack emerged, TalkTalk shares have lost about a third of their value.

The firm said 4% of TalkTalk customers have sensitive data at risk. It confirmed that scale of the attack was “much more limited than initially suspected”.

TalkTalk said:

  • 156,959 customers had personal details accessed
  • Of those customers, 15,656 bank account numbers and sort codes were stolen
  • 28,000 stolen credit and debit card numbers were “obscured” and “cannot be used for financial transactions
