Space station's 2 women prep for 1st all-female spacewalk

Men have floated out the hatch on all 420 spacewalks conducted over the past half-century.

That changes Friday with spacewalk No. 421.

NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir will make "HERstory," as NASA is calling it, with the first all-female spacewalk. All four men aboard the International Space Station will remain inside, as Koch and Meir go out to replace a broken battery charger.

The battery charger failed after Koch and a male crewmate installed new batteries outside the space station last week. NASA put the remaining battery replacements on hold to fix the problem and moved up the women's planned spacewalk by three days.

NASA, meanwhile, is asking schoolteachers to share photos of their students celebrating "HERstory in the making." The pictures might end up on the spacewalk broadcast.

Russia holds claim to the first spacewalk in 1965 and also the first spacewalk by a woman in 1984. The U.S. trailed by a few months in each instance.

As of Thursday, men dominated the spacewalking field, 213 to 14.

Meir, a marine biologist who arrived at the orbiting lab last month, will be the 15th female spacewalker. Koch, an electrical engineer, already has done three spacewalks; she's seven months into an 11-month spaceflight that will be the longest by a woman.

NASA planned the first all-female spacewalk in March, but had to call it off because of a shortage of medium-size suits. Koch put together a second medium over the summer.

Germany to Open Its 5G Market to Huawei Despite US Pressure – Report

Previously, the US threatened to cut its allies off from intelligence-sharing programmes if they allow Chinese tech giant Huawei to participate in the construction of their high-speed 5G networks. Despite this, many countries have ignored these threats.

A draft version of a new set of security requirements for telecommunications networks in Germany does not contain a controversial clause that would effectively ban China’s Huawei from taking part in the construction of 5G networks, Handelsblatt newspaper reports, citing an obtained document.

According to the outlet, the previously discussed provision, which required 5G network components to be acquired from "trusted suppliers" only, disappeared from the new regulation's text after pressure from the Ministry for Economic Affairs and the office of Chancellor Angela Merkel. This means that Huawei, whose products’ security standards have been questioned by the US, will still be able to participate in the construction of the high-speed information network for the EU’s largest economy.

Handelsblatt further indicates that the draft document, which could be published at the end of this or at the beginning of the next year, delegates the right to determine what constitutes critical infrastructure to the network operators themselves. Critical or core infrastructure of 5G networks will, however, be subject to inspections by Germany's Office for Information Security, which will check if the components are fully manageable and able to pass safety tests.

Huawei's access to 5G markets around the world was endangered by US actions in 2019, after Washington threatened to cut its allies' access to intelligence-sharing programmes if they don't ban the Chinese giant from their high-speed networks. The US claims that Huawei is cooperating with the Chinese government and is helping it spy on its clients by installing backdoors in its equipment.

The US claims that Huawei is cooperating with the Chinese government and is helping it spy on its clients by installing backdoors in its equipment.

Both Huawei and Beijing deny the allegations and have slammed the US for what they consider to be false accusations. Most countries have ignored Washington's threats, with the UK reportedly mulling over granting the Chinese company access to non-critical infrastructure and France giving its operators a carte-blanche on whether or not to use Huawei's equipment. However, several countries, namely Japan, New Zealand, and Australia, have listened to the US exhortations and banned the tech giant from their 5G networks.

Mark Zuckerberg ready to postpone the launch of his cryptocurrency, libra

The boss of Facebook has tried to respond to criticism and questions of US officials, who are concerned that its digital currency destabilizes the sovereignty of states.

The libra will wait. Asked by US elected members of the parliamentary committee on financial services, Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg was open to the possibility of revising his digital money project if he failed to get all the green lights needed.

"Clearly, we have not yet locked exactly how it will work," he admitted Wednesday, October 23, under the fire of criticism of elected officials. The CEO of the social media giant has answered many questions and accusations about his money project, which is expected to offer, from the current 2020, a new payment method outside the traditional banking channels, to buy goods or send money as easily as an instant message.

"The goal of libra is first to build a global payment system, more than a currency," he said. Such a system could be simply based on an existing currency, but would be much less ambitious than a new currency backed by a basket of currencies. Asked about the possibility of linking the libra only to the US dollar, Mark Zuckerberg replied that "the community [of partners] was divided on this issue". Because if it would facilitate the creation of cryptocurrency from the point of view of regulators, it would be "perhaps less welcome in some places if it was 100% based on the dollar," he warned.

Facebook could withdraw from the project

He has repeatedly said that Libra, run by an independent association (made up of businesses and non-profit organizations), would not be launched until all the necessary green lights from the regulators have been obtained. Several elected officials sought to know how far he was willing to go to carry out his project. "The Libra association is separate from Facebook. If I see that we can not continue in accordance with the principles I have established, then Facebook will withdraw from the project, "said Mark Zuckerberg.

Libra faces criticism and even complete rejection by many governments around the world, who see it as a threat to the monetary sovereignty of states, and do not trust the world's largest social network on its ability to protect personal data.

Facebook agreed to pay millions publishers, and now some hope to use it to pressure Apple and Google for better terms

Facebook is testing a news tab and paying dozens of publishers millions a year to supply articles to it. It's welcome news to publishers that have long agitated for
tech platforms to compensate them for presenting their content. Some think the Facebook developments will increase pressure on rival platforms Google and Apple News to be more generous with publishers. Others consider that wishful thinking, though. Facebook is testing a new section for news — and paying dozens of publishers millions a year to supply articles to it.

The deals are notable for being more generous than past content deals Facebook has had with publishers. As part of a news tab that's being announced Oct. 25, Facebook is paying certain publishers (including The Wall Street Journal, BuzzFeed, and Business Insider) licensing fees for three years, and annual payments range from in the hundreds of thousands to more than $3 million, depending on the publisher, according to multiple publisher sources who spoke anonymously because they weren't authorized to speak publicly about the deals. (Facebook hasn't commented on deal terms.)

The deals are favorable to publishers in other ways, too.

They'll let publishers get traffic to their sites that they can monetize with ads and will respect publishers' paywalls. This is a shift from the past, when Facebook pushed to host publishers' articles on its own property and to make all their content free so readers wouldn't hit paywalls when they clicked on an article. Facebook also is hiring a team of journalists to hand-pick a top-stories section of the news tab, reflecting concerns over its history of letting fake and misleading news spread on the platform.

All told, it's a sweet deal to the publishers that are being paid.

"You would be an idiot not to take the money," said one publishing exec of the terms Facebook is offering.

No one knows how successful the news tab will be with readers and Facebook is only paying a few dozen publishers. Still, some say given Facebook's size and the favorable terms of the deals, they see an opportunity to pressure rivals Google and Apple to improve their financial terms for publishers.

"I think this is really a welcome new trend, and standard, and that the pressure is now on the other platforms that have built their business in part on news to pay for that," said Ben Smith, editor in chief of BuzzFeed News.

"When we talk to them, this will probably be a topic of conversation," another publishing exec said ominously of Apple and Google.

Some publishing leaders including the heads of News Corp and BuzzFeed have been loudly calling for Google and Facebook to pay publishers licensing fees. Others have privately pushed for better treatment from them.

Publishers have the knives out for Google

Tech platforms overall have increasingly been paying publishers for their content. In addition to various Facebook initiatives, Snap pays publishers to create bespoke publications for its app. Publishers can sell subscriptions through Apple News, and Apple has also begun sharing revenue with publishers that are part of its Apple News Plus news bundle that rolled out this year.

But some publishers think they could do much more — Google in particular. The big gripe is that Google sends publishers a ton of traffic, but doesn't pay to license their content. Google also has had a history of penalizing paywalled publishers, and some think it still dings them in search results.

With Apple, the often-heard complaint is that its Apple News app is a terrible deal for advertising and data, reflecting Apple's business model. Apple sends some traffic to publishers and lets publishers sell subscriptions through the app, but requires them to share the revenue. As for Apple News Plus, publishers initially saw little revenue from it.

Apple hasn't responded to a request for comment.

"We're glad [Apple News Plus] is out there, but it has relatively little daily news content in it," said David Chavern, president and CEO of the News Media Alliance, a trade organization for newspapers. "Google likes to talk about how much traffic they drive. Google is becoming an outlier in that they're not offering a sustainable deal for news, and publishers are starting to wake up to that."

Some publishers believe they have a lot of leverage now because these tech companies need their high-quality content to keep people using their platforms.

"In light of the misleading and toxic content running rampant on big tech platforms and with significant political and public pressure, it's not surprising Facebook is striking partnerships better recognizing the value of trusted news brands," said Jason Kint, CEO of Digital Content Next, a publisher trade group. "This is a positive step forward, which hopefully others will embrace."

And now more than ever, Google and other tech giants are in the hot seat with lawmakers and regulators who are increasingly worried these tech giants have become too powerful and are looking for reasons to tear them down. The harm they're doing to the news industry is one such reason, these publishers would argue.

Google is already taking heat in Europe over publisher payments

Some US publishers think they can benefit from the momentum that's building in Europe, where a new copyright law lets publishers ask Google and Facebook to pay them for displaying their content. France is leading the way in adopting the law, but Google refused to pay, which has led to outcry from publishers and European lawmakers. Google's response is that it provides significant value to the news industry through traffic, monetization tools, and the Google News Initiative.

But other publishers are skeptical the other tech companies will budge, especially Google. And it's not like Facebook is paying publishers so much that they can just, say, turn their backs on Google's referral traffic.

"They don't have to do anything for publishers," one publishing exec said of Google. "The model has always been, 'You use our ad tech to make money, we'll send traffic there, it's a win-win. "

What happens in your body if you do not have sex for a week

Between disappointments in love, periods of celibacy, bad sexual experiences, work and family constraints and health problems, we have an endless list of reasons why we face sexual abstinence. But, did you know that a lack of sex was harmful to your physical and mental health? Explications! In general, having a fulfilling sex life allows you to be in osmosis with your body and your mind. Thus, periods of sexual abstinence can be frustrating in every way. By the way, here are 9 things that happen to the body when you do not have sex:

A drop in libido

During the sexual act, the body produces various hormones of well-being and attachment, including endorphin. These hormones offer a pleasant sensation and allow to associate the sex with a positive feeling, thus to maintain the sexual desire. But, during abstinence, these hormones do not circulate in the body and the libido falls gradually because the less we do, the less we want to do!

A limited intellectual level

At the time, it was customary to believe that sexual intercourse, especially ejaculation, negatively affected the intellect. But it's the opposite! According to researchers at Princeton University (New Jersey, USA), sex and intelligence are linked because regular sexual activity is the cause of increased connections between neurons. Thus, a lack of sexual intercourse would limit the development of the intellectual level.

An increase in blood pressure

In parallel with being a moment of intense pleasure, sexual activity is a sport activity that helps maintain cardiovascular health. Thus, a person being in a period of abstinence decreases the proper functioning of his cardiovascular system, which can lead him to suffer from high blood pressure.

Stress and anxiety

Since the body releases various hormones that regulate mood during sex, they promote the reduction of stress and anxiety. However, it also means that periods of sexual abstinence are synonymous with more stress and anxiety.

A self-esteem in free fall

In view of the production of hormones and the positive links that are created between the partners, sexual intercourse promotes a feeling of self-confidence. However, on the contrary, when we go through a period of sexual abstinence, our self-esteem is in free fall.

A weakened immune system

According to a study by psychologists Carl Charnetski and Francis Brennan Jr., orgasms would be particularly beneficial to the immune system, as well as sexual intercourse. In fact, thanks to women's saliva collection after sex, they found that women with a fulfilling sex life have a higher concentration of immunoglobulin A, the antibody that is the first line of defense against the immune system. toxins and pathogens.

Problems with lubrication

Prolonged sexual abstinence can cause vaginal dryness. Indeed, this is one of the risk factors and this is related to a drop in the production of transparent lubricating fluid of the vagina, because of a disruption of hormonal secretions and sexual desire.

Erectile dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is illustrated by a physiological and / or psychological origin. In the second case, we talk about performance anxiety, that is to say, fearing not being able to have an erection or maintain it long enough to meet his needs and those of his partner. Sometimes this is a consequence of prolonged sexual abstinence.

A reduction in the risks of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Fortunately, there is at least one benefit to not having sex, that of not getting STDs! Indeed, since unprotected sex increases the risk of having a sexually transmitted disease (STD), not having sex for a certain period of time will logically reduce this risk.

Penile pressure, the solution against premature ejaculation

Premature ejaculation, this evil that rots the lives of some couples. The woman can help her man with this technique. Here is a solution: penile pressure, how does it work? Ladies to you to play. Penile pressure helps delay ejaculation, and it involves exerting pressure at the base of the limb just before it ejaculates. Remember to work, you have to practice.

In practice, when you stroked Chouchou, when he feels the ejaculation come, put pressure by putting the thumb on the lower base of his sex, and the other fingers around the crown for a few seconds, then release. Repeat a few seconds later. During the report, he lying on his back, you on him and if he feels the thing coming, he informs you. Remove yourself (the woman), gently and practice the exercise. Repeat as many times as you want ... Together, find the right rhythm !

How to minimize the risks of oral sex ?

Using a condom for oral sex is the best way to protect yourself. You can use condoms of flavors to mask the taste. If you choose to have oral sex without a condom, here are some rules to minimize the risk of transmission:

- Avoid taking sperm in your mouth;

- Avoid brushing your teeth or flossing for at least an hour Before and after a blowjob.
