Egyptian military performs 'virginity tests'

Egyptian military performs 'virginity tests'
Egyptian military performs 'virginity tests'. Egypt women protesters forced to take 'virginity tests'. A leading rights group says the Egyptian army arrested, tortured and forced women to take "virginity tests" during protests earlier this month.

Amnesty International is calling on the authorities in Cairo to investigate.

It says at least 18 female protesters were arrested after army officers cleared Tahrir Square on 9 March.

It says they were then beaten, given electric shocks and strip searched.
The army denies the allegations.
'Utterly unacceptable'

A 20-year-old woman, Salwa Hosseini, told Amnesty she was forced to take off all her clothes by a female prison guard in a room with open doors and a window.
She said that male soldiers looked in and took photographs of her while she was naked.

The demonstrator said a man in a white coat later carried out a 'virginity check' on her and she was threatened with prostitution charges.

"Forcing women to have 'virginity tests' is utterly unacceptable. Its purpose is to degrade women because they are women," a spokesperson for Amnesty International said in a statement.

"Women and girls must be able to express their views on the future of Egypt without being detained, tortured, or subjected to profoundly degrading and discriminatory treatment."

Egypt's military has been criticised by activists for detaining people involved in the mass protests and abusing them.

The military denies using torture against civilians.

Last week, the head of the military police told an Egyptian newspaper that video footage had been fabricated by individuals wanting to create divisions between the people and the armed forces.

Human rights groups have also criticised Egypt's new rulers for continuing to put civilians on trial before military courts. They say these have a track record of unfair trials and severely restrict the right to appeal.

Reporting on the military in Egypt is difficult. A law passed in 1956 prevents writing about the army.

Moby Has Crush on Britney Spears

Moby has developed an unlikely crush on Britney Spears, the Sun reports.

The hip electronica artist said he'd marry the former megastar and tabloid target "in a heartbeat."

"She's like this Tennessee Williams tragic figure," he said, according to the Sun. "The fatter she gets, the weirder she gets, the more I love her. I found her moderately appealing in the late '90s, but now I would marry her in a heartbeat."

James Spears was named co-conservator of his daughter's estate Feb. 1 after she was twice hospitalized in a psychiatric facility. Conservatorships are granted for people deemed unable to take care of themselves or their affairs.

She has since shown signs of improvement, appearing successfully on the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother." Her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, has custody of their two young sons.

William & Kate's have busy plans in US, Canada

William & Kate's have busy plans in US, Canada
William & Kate's have busy plans in US, Canada. Planning for any Royal tour is detailed, to say the least. But the input Prince William and Kate are having on the schedule for their first overseas tour as a married couple is said to be extraordinary.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are leaving little to Royal flunkies and Government administrators – instead both are involved in just about every aspect of the planning.

They leave for Canada on June 30 on a much-anticipated visit that will be followed by a trip to the US, where ‘A’ list celebrities in Los Angeles are already falling over themselves to get the hottest tickets in town.

The result of William and Kate’s planning will be revealed in more detail by St James Palace this Monday. Reporters have received a background briefing already, but the finer details are embargoed.
What’s certain is that the Royal couple wish for the visit to reflect their interests and age. That will ensure William is able to represent the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), of which he is president, in Hollywood when they move to the US leg of their tour on July 8.

There is even talk of a cricket match and tea party to promote the UK.

It is also being reported that Kate had asked that they work in a trip to Prince Edward Island during the Canadian leg of their tour. Tourism officers there can hardly containing their excitement over claims the Anne of Green Gables novel may have inspired William and Kate’s trip to the province this summer.

“We do hope that Kate is a big Anne fan, that there is some truth to that,” said Brenda Gallant, marketing director for the P.E.I. Department of Tourism.

“It would be exciting to have her here to experience the beauty of the Island as Lucy Maud Montgomery saw it.”
With all the details set to be revealed shortly, there is still plenty of work to do, especially for Kate. With the world’s eyes on her, there will be fevered coverage of what she wears.

With that in mind, she has been busy putting together a wardrobe to wow Canada and the US.

She is expected to be putting together at least 40 outfits to ensure she has something for every possible occasion.

A former Palace aide said: “A first Royal tour places immense pressure on a young bride because everyone is keen to know what the blueprint will be for her life as a Duchess: whether she has a lady in waiting, or a stylist.”

The Palace insists Kate is yet to decide if she wants to take a stylist. If not, then she will have equerries and ladies-in-waiting who will be helping out.

“On tour you cannot iron all your own clothes, don’t have time to unpack, can’t hold all the flowers you are handed and, most importantly, need someone to start chatting in a crowded room,” the insider added.

Both William and Kate have links with Canada. It was there that Prince Charles took his two sons for a vacation after the death of Diana, the Princess of Wales. While Kate has family ties – her late grandfather served as a trainee bomber pilot close to Calgary during World War II.

If, as expected, they visit French-speaking Quebec, William will have no problem impressing with his near-fluent French. However, it is believed Kate has been trying to brush up on her French.

PBS site is hacked with Tupac story

PBS Hacked, Claims 'Tupac Alive' In New Zealand

A report is spreading quickly on Facebook and Twitter that famed rapper Tupac Shakur is shockingly "alive and well" in New Zealand, 15 years after he died.

This is of course false. Tupac died in Las Vegas in 1996. But the link that is circulating, a PBS Web story, looks entirely legitimate, fueling the rumor.

PBS has been hacked

PBS NewsHour online engagement staffer Teresa Gorman has spent much of her holiday Sunday night replying to folks on Twitter, telling them the report is false and PBS has been hacked.

The Lulz Boat has claimed responsibility. Not only has it posted the "Tupac Alive" Web update to the PBS site, but on Twitter it posted information for staffers, the PBS network, and password info for PBS stations.

According to Secure Business Intelligence, LulzSec has attacked several high-profile organizations in the last month, although it is known to hack for "entertainment and infamy," rather than financial gain.

The report on PBS NewsHour "The Rundown" carries the headline "Tupac still alive in New Zealand" with a timestamp of May 29, 2011 at 11:30 PM EDT. It includes a picture of Tupac and as of 1 a.m. Monday morning, it was still live on the PBS site.
