Turkey has blocked all access to Wikipedia

No.135842 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
The Turkish government has blocked access to Wikipedia, watchdog organizations said Saturday.

"After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the Law Nr. 5651 [governing the internet], an administrative measure has been taken for this website," said a statement from the Turkish Information and Communication Technologies Authority, which did not provide an official reason for the block. The law the statement cited permits the government to ban websites deemed obscene or threatening to national security.

Turkish media reported authorities took issue with Wikipedia content "supporting terror" (or perhaps suggesting ties between Turkey and terrorist groups). When Wikipedia refused to remove the content in question, local stories said, the ban was Ankara's retaliation.

This move comes two weeks after a referendum vote gave Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expansive new powers.

Man says pizza box changed his outlook on life

No.135657 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
RONKONKOMA, N.Y. - A New York man said a free pizza saved his life.

Dennis Kust, 59, lost his wife last month after a long battle with cancer.

He admitted that he was struggling with depression when he walked into Albert’s Pizza in Ronkonkoma, New York, CBS New York reported.

He received a free pizza as part of a “pay it forward with pizza” campaign.


Kind customers had stepped forward to pay for pizzas for police officers, single mothers and people like Kust who are struggling.

When Kust opened up the pizza box from an anonymous donor, he found, written in colorful letters, a message that read “Stay strong.”
It’s the same message that he heard his wife say every day before she died.

“The last month of my wife’s life, she kept telling me, ‘You have to be strong, you have to be strong,’” Kust told CBS New York.

Kust said the pizza box’s message convinced him that his wife was still with him.

He went back to the store later to thank the owners and to give them a handwritten letter explaining how much the simple act of kindness meant.

“You don’t know me, but on March 25th, you turned my life around,” the letter read.

Rich Baer, co-owner of Albert’s, said he has read the letter dozens of times, and it always brings him to tears.

“When you do something nice, it works. You see somebody benefit,” Baer told CBS New York.

Kust also stepped up to anonymously buy a pie for someone else.

It’s unclear how the pizza restaurant knew that Kust was going through a tough time, but the action affected him in an important way.

“I’d like to somehow thank the people who bought it for me and let them know they saved my life,” he told CBS.

The pay it forward pizza movement is growing rapidly, with dozens of customers buying pizzas for others. Like Kust, most are donating anonymously.

Unusual Beauty Craze Has Thai Women Shaping Their Lips Like Buffalo Horns

No.135646 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A bizarre beauty craze has been sweeping Thailand for the last 5 years, with women spending thousands of dollars to have their upper lip reshaped as buffalo horns. Known as “krachap lips”, the cosmetic procedure is apparently only popular in Thailand.

Named after the water chestnut or buffalo nut – known as krachap in Thailand – because of its shape, which resembles a buffalo head or a flying bat, the controversial cosmetic procedure has become increasingly popular among young women over the last four or five years. It’s unclear how the trend began, but posts on the plastic surgery internet forum Dungdong reveal that people had been talking about the bow-like upper lip shape as early as 2009, in a desire to copy the look of actress Patcharapa “Aum” Chaichua. But it’s been getting worse in the last couple of years and plastic surgeons are desperate to stop it.

“It’s a nationwide problem, this lip thing, I blame the internet for it,” plastic surgeon Chamnong Chirawichada told the Bangkok Post. “Sometimes it takes me half an hour to persuade a patient not to do it, but then they end up having it elsewhere. Lip reduction is not appropriate for everyone.”

Krachap lips are easily recognizable by the protruding middle section of the upper lip, which is done by removing tissue from the left and right parts of the lip, making it thinner. The problem isn’t the shape, but the complications that arrive when people go too far. Thin lips are very popular in Thailand, but sometimes the reduction is so extreme that the lips don’t touch each other completely when the mouth is closed, or disappear completely when the person is smiling. Plastic surgery forums are full of reports of botched up procedures, but that doesn’t seem to scare people out of going under the knife.

Anti-Trump 'Avengers' Director Mocks Teenage Cancer Survivors While Targeting Paul Ryan

No.135752 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
>On Thursday, in a now-deleted tweet, Democrat mega-donor and Avengers director Joss Whedon took shots at teenage cancer survivors visiting the White House. The anti-Trump director was targeting Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan when he referred to the young women who beat cancer during their childhood as "Not a 10."

>Ryan apparently caught the eye of Whedon on Thursday, when the speaker posted a photo of the meeting he and the young girls had in Washington.

>"Advocacy is not limited to adults. These Wisconsin teens shared some powerful stories with me about their fight against childhood cancer," wrote Ryan.

>The teens lending their hands to fight against childhood cancer belong to One Step Camp, which offers "camp experiences and other programs throughout the year that allow children with cancer to just be kids. Our programs offer fun, friendship and support in a safe and nurturing environment," according to the camp's official website. "Through the magic of childhood experiences, we help kids diagnosed with cancer reclaim their lives."

>Soon after the despicable post, Whelen was hit with condemnation from both sides of the aisle. He promptly deleted the post and offered a "apology," which simply stated that he offended the wrong people:

>"So I tweeted something that inadvertently offended everyone except the people I was trying to offend. I'm sorry. I'll be quiet for a bit."
