Australian Vaccination-Skeptics Network compare vaccines to rape

Justyn | April 23, 2015

The Australian Vaccination-Skeptics Network posted an image to their Facebook group which compared vaccinations to rape. The image is pretty much offensive to everyone, which shows a man holding his hand over a terrified woman’s mouth, reading: “FORCED PENETRATION.

Pediatricians say excessive screen time has been linked with violence, cyber-bullying, school woes, obesity, lack of sleep and a host of other problems. I would say that almost every parent would be guilty of their child(ren) being on a screen for more than two hours per day (be it TV, computer, gaming console, mobile device).

I’ve had my motorcycle licence for around 3 years or so now, and prior to obtaining my licence I had never ridden a motorcycle on the road. This is where NQ Ride Motorcycle Training came in.

Justyn | February 24, 2015

Pebble started a “teaser” last week on their website with a countdown for a new announcement. However it seems that the new announcement was already leaked by 9to5Mac, which reportedly found the image hosted on Pebble’s own servers.

It seems lately that the internet has erupted with some misleading news claiming that Samsung Smart TVs are spying on you, just like out of George Orwell’s novel 1984.

Short Film: We’re missing life due to our phone obsessions

This is a short animation called Mr Selfie by We Are Seventeen. It is the perfect portrayal of our reliance on phones. We use them when we wake up, when we go to bed, to help us fall asleep.
