Baby Gaga breast milk ice cream: "Miracle of motherhood" or totally gross?

(CBS) Baby Gaga or baby gross?

A London ice cream parlor says it plans to serve up sugary confections made from human breast milk so everyone can experience the "miracle of motherhood," according to Reuters.

"What could be more natural than fresh, free-range mother's milk in an ice cream?" said Victoria Hiley, one of the 15 women who donated their mammary milk.

Hiley has a point, at least when it comes to little ones. Breast-fed babies gain natural protection against stomach problems, asthma, diabetes, respiratory infections and childhood leukemia, according to the government's Office on Human Health. And a recent study found that 900 babies and billions of dollars would be saved each year if 90 percent of American women breast-fed their babies for the first six months of life.
But what happens when adults drink from mom's soft serve? Is the stuff safe?

There's no evidence that "occupational exposure" to breast milk can spread HIV or hepatitis B, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But since mothers can spread HIV to their babies through breast milk, the CDC says people working in milk banks can wear gloves as a precaution.

No word on what steps the parlor has taken to lick any potential risks.

Is Diet Soda Really the Healthier Soft Drink?

New study finds link between drinking diet soda and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke

The premise: Many soda drinkers opt for diet over regular, thinking that the zero calories and zero sugar makes the drink a healthier option. But the scientific evidence backing up that idea is lacking. In fact, a 2005 study reported that people who drink diet soda instead of regular don’t lose any extra weight. Rather, they gain weight. Now, a new nine-year study finds a connection between drinking diet soft drinks and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

The set-up: Researchers gathered 2,465 subjects. The average age was 69 and about two-thirds of the participants were women—but the findings are still applicable to you. “We didn’t see any interaction with age or sex,” says study researcher Hannah Gardener, ScD, an epidemiologist at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. “Therefore there’s no reason why the results would be different for younger, male subjects.”

At the start of the study, people were asked to document what foods and beverages they consumed and how often they consumed them. They were asked about their exercise routines and whether they smoked or drank alcohol. And the participants had physical checkups.

With the preliminary research in: 901 participants said they never drank soda or drank it less than once a month, 282 said they drank at least one regular soda daily and 116 reported they drank at least one diet soda a day.

The results: Over the next nine years, those who drank diet soda daily were 48 percent more likely to have a heart attack or stroke, compared with those who rarely drank soda. There was actually no risk increase for cardiovascular disorders among the daily drinkers of regular soda.

“We had a strong bias for conducting the study, as other diet soda studies have suggested an association between diabetes, weight gain, coronary heart disease and other ailments, but we were surprised to find the strength of the results,” says Gardener.

A few flaws in the study are worth noting: Participants were only asked about the soda habits at one point (they may have changed habits at some point during the nine years) and there’s no information about which soft drinks were being consumed. And even though the researchers tried to consider for risk factors that that could skew the results, they couldn't account for everything.

The takeaway: Despite the overwhelming results, the study doesn't prove cause and effect. Meaning, it’s too early to recommend swapping a diet soda for a regular calorie-heavy soda. “I actually don’t think you should drink any soda at all,” Gardener suggests. “I’d always recommend a glass of water over any other beverage.”

Drive Angry 3D really did get its title from Groundhog Day

Author: Eric Eisenberg

It should surprise nobody that the Drive Angry 3D script written by Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer was inspired by a plethora of other films. Based on the tradition of road movies from the late 60s and 70s, elements ranging from the cars the characters drive to plot elements come straight out of that era. The title, however, does not - that credit goes to Harold Ramis' comedy Groundhog Day.

Just yesterday I sat down with Lussier and Farmer to discuss their newest film and one question that I asked was regarding the direct influences that the writers used while developing the film. But amongst titles like Vanishing Point, Duel, Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, Race With The Devil, Lussier made a point of mentioning the Bill Murray comedy. Now you may be asking yourself, "What the hell does one thing have to do with the other?" During a scene in which Murray's character, Phil Connors, steals the groundhog known as Punxsutawney Phil and while letting the little rodent drive offers up a little bit of advice: "Don't drive angry, don't drive angry." Cut off the "don't" and you have yourself a movie title.

Even without knowing this little bit of information Drive Angry is a great title, but a tie-in to Groundhog Day only makes it better. I've embedded the clip from the movie below, the quote in question coming right around the 1:37 mark. Stay tuned later today when I post my full interview with Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer.

The Touchscape Multi-Touch Coffee Table Makes Coffee Fun

We all know that a lot can happen over coffee. But now it is time to change the phrase a little. A lot can now happen over the coffee table. In fact the table can give discussions a guide and get actively involved in conversations. No, the table is not going to do the talking but it can help you in a number of ways. Thanks to the brand new concept of the Multi-Touch Coffee Table from Touchscape.

The concept of the touch screen is pretty well-known now. This very technology has been incorporated into the coffee table. The Multi-Touch Coffee Table has a 47 inch high definition LCD screen incorporated onto its surface. You might have seen something like these being used in movies but it won’t be long before you could run your fingers on one such screen in your very own living room.

This patented MT technology bearing coffee table screen boasts of having an HD 1920 X 1080p resolution. It is capable of tracking as many touches as can be fit on the screen. It has been powered by a Quad Core Processor and the surface configuration can be a Windows 7 touch input device similar to the Microsoft Surface. It can also serve TUIO touch events to be used with SUSHI or multitouch SDK. The unique experience of this table enables you to enjoy applications with your fingertips. Moving around on screen or browsing through photographs was never so easy before.

The processor is ably supported by a 4 GB memory while there is scope for storing a whopping 180 GB. That would take many coffee mugs to discuss all that data. It efficiently supports Bluetooth, Wi Fi, USB and Ethernet. Keeping with the times it is well ready to take on the 3G era in communication.

The ambient light sensor is able to adjust display based on the background lighting conditions. The self monitoring system keeps a watch on the performance by regularly checking for updates which keeps the system moving.

Since it is a coffee table it should be capable enough to support coffee mugs and this it can do with all expertise. The LCD display has features like being scratch resistant, wipe-clean top, and in the worst case replaceable.

Once you have invited guests over for coffee on the Multi-Touch table you are sure to have them visiting again. And you are going to be a beaming host to all.

If you think this is great, you are yet to go through articles on iPhone 4 Table Design and Dining Pool Table.

'99 Bottles of Beer' Awesome Music Video


Lyrics and vocals by Ray Johnson

Beat by Kurt Hugo Schneider and Ray Johnson


I was chilling with my BUD, SAM ADAMS.
We get a call from MILLER. The man was having spasms.
He said, "dude get dressed. There's not a chance in hell
That we could miss this keg party up in SAN MIGUEL."

"Do I have to go out, dude?"
"No but that Mexican chick CORONA is there,
And she's been asking about you."
I hung up the phone. Time to get dressed, I
Put on my MAGIC HAT and my shirt with the RED STRIPE.

We hit a BUSCH dodging traffic as we passed by 'em
In that KILLIAN'S RED charger with the FAT TIRE(s).
We drove around for like half the night.
Luckily the BLUE MOON provided NATURAL LIGHT.

We rolled up to the party and everybody was rockin',
Playing BECK'S old single on that iPod dock and
That's where it's at. My ears were all ringing.
The party crowd was getting loud, and everybody started singing:

[inaudible] bottles of beer on the wall.
[inaudible] bottles of beer.
You take one down, you pass it around,
You got [inaudible] bottles of beer on the wall.

Now everyone was crammed in the basement, wasted
Even ASAHI, that foreign exchange kid.
He was just in KINGFISHER, wreckin' his Vette
Like "automobile, big leck!"

I poured myself a brew and drank half the glass
This ugly MOOSEHEAD chick kept grabbing my ass.
I told that HARP that she could go to hell
And then I saw CORONA, and she was looking STELLA.

And down to have some fun, she
Was still a freshman, a YUENGLING with a tongue-ring.
The alcohol was all clouding my thinking,
So I slapped her on the HEINEKEN I get you a drink? And

She said, "ha! You're totally cute.
"If you fetch me a beer, I'll let you touch my boob."
Hell yeah, I went to get her a drink, then
The party started moving, and everybody started singing:

[inaudible] bottles of beer on the wall.
[inaudible] bottles of beer.
You take one down, you pass it around,
You got [inaudible] bottles of beer on the wall.

CORONA'S ex-boyfriend started talking to me
His FOSTER(s) parents nicknamed him MILWAUKEE'S BEST.
'Cause dude was big enough that he could tackle the world.
He was like "Hey Broski, you're jacking my girl.
I should bust your SKOL. You look like a queer, I'm
Gonna challenge you to a game of beer pong."

"Of COORS! Challenge accepted."
You can call me GUINNESS, 'cause I'm touting the record."
Beer pong's my game, and with my shoulder cocked
I bounced that ball in the cup like a ROLLING ROCK.

We played for a while, and I was wooing them when
I showed everyone who'd win the BLUE RIBBON... PABST
And CORONA was like, "wow!
You can totally touch my boob now."

Or maybe a king with my CORONA
In my NEW CASTLE, and everybody started singing:

[inaudible] bottles of beer on the wall.
[inaudible] bottles of beer.
You take one down, you pass it around,
You got [inaudible] bottles of beer on the wall.
