You Are Still Struggling With The Introduction Of Same Sex Marriage And Gay Relationships, Wait Three-Parent Babies May Soon Be On It's Way!

Britain is moving closer to becoming the first country to create babies with three genetic parents via IVF in order to defeat inherited diseases. The Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has advised the government that there is no evidence the advanced forms of IVF were unsafe, but said further research was still necessary, according to the BBC. HFEA began a public discussion of the topic at the government's request last year. "Although some people have concerns about the safety of these techniques, we found that they trust the scientific experts and the regulator to know when it is appropriate to make them available to patients," Lisa Jardine, chair of the group, said in a statement Wednesday. Critics were quick to react to the decision, saying that three-person babies will be a breach of ethics, adding that there were already safemethods like egg donation to allow people to have children without mitochondria defects. Professor Lisa Jardine, chair of the …

President Barack Obama spoke Thursday at the White House, where he announced "My Brother's Keeper" - a new initiative to help young men and boys of color succeed.

I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn't always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short," the President said. He compared himself to young men now who are growing up like he did. "The only difference is that I grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. So when I made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe," the President said. "I had people who encouraged me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. And they pushed me to work hard, and study hard, and make the most of myself. And if I didn…

Facebook Is Droppin.g The e-mail Services---In Case You Notice

The world's largest social media outlet is pulling the plug on its little-used e-mail service, the company confirmed Tuesday. "We're making this change because most people haven't been using their Facebook e-mail address, and we can focus on improving our mobile messaging experience for everyone," Facebook said in a statement. For those who do have a Facebook mail account, messages will be forwarded to the primary e-mail address listed in a user's account, the company said. The changes are planned to roll out in March, and users can turn off that forwarding option if they prefer not to have their personal inboxes flooded with these messages. "It's a little bit of bowing to the inevitable," said Justin Lafferty, editor of the trade site Inside Facebook. The e-mail addresses, which showed up as messages for Facebook users, never took off, and when Facebook tried to make them the default e-mail accounts for all users in mid-2012, "a lot of pe…
