In India Famous Hindu Holy Man Paramhamsa Nithyananda Has Own Sexy Scandal

In India Paramhamsa Nithyananda, the popular Indian Hindu holy man with a reported 2 million followers, over 11 ashrams in India and 26 in different countries around the world has decided to live a life of spiritual seclusion after being filmed in a sex tape.

Today the holy man is officially missing from law authorities, unable to sort out his holy man status from a growing number of legal cases against him.

Nithyananda’s problems all began with a mildly compromising sex video, shown on TV all over India in early March 2010.

The Nithyananda Mission ashram released a statement calling the video “a mix of conspiracy, graphics and rumours”, but followers attacked the building. The revered spiritual leader says he was the most watched guru on YouTube.

A former disciple Nitya Dharmanada alias Karuppa Lenin, has claimed he filmed Nithyananda’s sexcapades ‘to unmask the man masquerading as a spiritual leader’. The videos showed Nithyananda in compromising positions with actress Ranjitha, who served as Nithyananda’s personal attendant during her frequent visits to his ashram.

Last week in Bangalore the Karnataka high court, on Tuesday, ordered the state police to produce all documents relating to the cases, after Nithyananda petitioned the court to stop the proceedings against him.

The 33-year-old godman said he was ”in a state of samadhi (trance)” when the video, showing him in a compromising position with an actress, was taken.

Smart Bird Babies 'Know' Food Supply Before Hatching

RedTracker| Scientists studying bird behavior have concluded that canary mothers send messages via androgen deposits into the eggs, giving baby canaries a heads up on what to expect foodwise once they hatch. In response, the nestlings adjust their begging for food behaviour.

Dr Rebecca Kilner, from the Cambridge University research team, told Wired that while it is not known how the chicks “read” these androgen messages, “We do know that chicks with higher androgen levels beg more intensely.”

Molly Melching's Tostan | Village-Based Big Success To End Female Genital Cutting

Tostan founder Molly Melching was a featured speaker at The Daily Beast’s Women in the World summit.

Melching’s organization Tostan is a global leader in the movement to stop genital cutting, an initiative we’ve featured here on AOC, not only because we support the end of FGC, but also because Tostan has succeeded in transferring power and decision-making about FGC to a local village level in Senegal.

As a white woman and transplant to Africa, Ms Melching was somewhat reluctant to become a leader in such a sensitive cultural practice. The women disagreed, saying “This isn’t about you; it’s about us. We are Tostan.”

When Melching began educating village women in 1997 a local Muslim leader named Demba Diawara came to tell Melching that Tostan’s program was leading to trouble.

“This isn’t the way to end female genital cutting,” he said. “Change has to come from within.” So Melching asked the Islamic leader how he would approach the problem. “I would put on my shoes and walk to all the surrounding communities,” he said. Since women from one village marry the men of another, it’s crucial that both communities accept the end of the practice, so that women don’t find themselves isolated, ostracized, and unable to find suitable husbands, he explained. Ending female genital cutting was never going to happen until all the villages decided to abandon the practice together. via The Daily Beast

Hitting the road, Tostan has become so effective in empowering villages to end the practice of female genital cutting that today 4,229 communities out of 5,000 in Senegal have abandoned the practice.

Molly Melching didn’t travel alone to the Women in the World summit. As you will hear, she brought a village leader and colleague Marietou Diarra, who shared a heart-breaking story about female genital cutting and her personal efforts now on behalf of her culture — and women — to change the practice.

Yes, the tears were running down my cheeks, but the important fact is what has happened since this sad story. Like so many women in Africa, Marietou Diarra took action.

A Mother’s Worst Nightmare

The efforts to end Female Genital Cutting are so widespread in Senegal that last month the government announced a comprehensive strategy for achieving its goal of nationwide abandonment by 2015.

In London Art Market, 'Sex Sells' Only Moderately Well

‘Soft Tread’ a lush painting of stocking-clad legs by Allen Jones sold at $539,000 on a $90-120,000 estimate at London’s ‘Sex Sells’ auction. Actually the results were somewhat disappointing, with only a two-thirds sell-thru in works offered.

Anne Calls the Vatican About Kate Moss, Mummy Rocks & British Women 

via The SunCan you imagine American women holding a Mummy Rocks charity bash, even for Great Ormond Street Hospital? Me neither.

What do you expect in a (truly delicious) country where 80% of women surveyed by netmums say they like to dress up for sex, and most often as a French maid. Properly inspired, Moss showed up in a black corset dress, with a black tuxedo jacket.

Decadent. Decadent. Decadent! Did I say ‘filth’.  British broads, would you PLEASE behave! You are a disgrance to our gender.

Kate hardly looked like a woman destined to have her own 2011 Parisian retrospective at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Presumably, they’ll clean her up for the occasion.

In fact, the tawdry night continued with Kate acting like a love-struck groupie when Clash legend Mick Jones rocked on stage.

The Sun reports that Kate finally grabbed the mic herself, “prompting raucous cheers from the mum gang.”

Kate’s partner Jamie Hince did his best to keep Moss in supermodel-status, ladylike mode but the effort became Mission Impossible.

After a Near Miss on Abortion Rights, Activism Is Required

Updated on Tue, March 23, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

As a pro-choice American woman, I’m galvanized to the core of my being by the American Catholic bishops and Rep Stupak’s intention to hold the entire American health care system hostage to his ‘higher’ principles.

This is not my vision of a separation of church and state in America.I would also like the Catholic church to get their own house in order and stop preaching to everyone else.

Twenty-seven percent of all abortions in America are had by Catholic women, compared to Catholics being 24% of the American population, based on current research. Only 26% of Catholic men go to church every week, which is a disgrace given their lectures to women about morality.

Hissa Hilal | 'Ordinary' Saudi Woman Poet Defies Extremists in Poetry Competition

 http://bit.ly/cmn2h8

A Saudi housewife has galvanized the Arab world ahead of the finals of the “Million’s Poet” TV program, aired weekly on Abu Dhabi state television.

The competition draws masters of bedouin dialect poetry known as Nabati, which is highly appreciated by Gulf Arabs. Moving up the ranks of competition, Hissa Hilal’s multiple readings of her poems have enraged fundamentalists in the region.

The Saudi mother’s calmly-stated opinions and expressive writing have resulted in death threats on Islamist websites like Ana Al-Muslim, an online forum known for posting messages from Al-Qaeda.

Sheikh al Barrak’s fatwa had called for the execution of anyone who says mixing of sexes is allowed in Islam because “he is allowing what is not allowed, and therefore he is a kafir who left the religion and should be killed if he does not change his opinion”. via The National

The poet, who has not been to the university, said that through her poems, she wants to “fight extremism, which has become a worrying phenomenon.” via AFP
