Australia to Chelsea Manning: You’re not welcome here

Bad news for Chelsea Manning,  worse news, for those hoping to see the former whistle-blower in Australia at her upcoming speaking gig. According to Home Affairs, Manning's application for a special visa has been  effectively denied because she "failed the character test. The Guardian notes that there are variant reasons that one could "fail the character test" not  just the fact that someone may or may not have leaked classified documents.  Manning was famously  convicted of leaking classified government documents to Wikileaks, and, subsequently served 7 years in prison for such acts. Amnesty International has since claimed that Australia's decision is a direct "violation of Freedom of Speech" rights.

STD ‘s see record numbers in the United States

Per the Center for Disease Control,  record numbers of STD diagnoses  plagued the United States for the entire previous year. CDC officials noted in an official report that for the past calendar year, the U.S, added at least 200k more than the previous year. The report also confirmed that about 2.3m cases of STD's were seen across the entire United States, a steep rise, compared to usual years.  Officials say that  they believe one of the reasons for the rise in  cases, is,  the subsequent rise in medicines that make it harder to contract HIV for those whom are negative. Let this serve as a reminder for those in America, and even abroad, that getting tested is nothing to be ashamed of and should be a normal part of routine life.

Yes, the UK, can also get in on Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes

You're reading this right, and, this is not a drill -- Pumpkin Spice Lattes are a thing now (and so are the really annoying  females in the Starbucks line arguing over what kind of milk to put in said PSL). Starbucks confirmed Tuesday that the PSL is back in action as of 28 August, and, pretty much virtually any Starbucks should have it.     The 28 August release marks the earliest release of the PSL ever recorded,  hopefully, said release means that fall is around the corner (and we can finally kiss those really hot heat waves good bye!).

This is the person responsible for Asia Argento ‘s permanent downfall

A chance to help others, and then, tragedy struck

Good Samaritans are hard to come by this day-and-age.  But when one does help others, they, imagine that in return they're eventually going to become blessed individuals. For one family,  that, in fact was the polar opposite -- after a motorist  killed all four their daughters and their friends. Jenna Helton, 14; Nevaeh Law, 14; Brittany Watson, 15; and Martin Martinez, 16, stepped out of their fun-zone during a sleepover to help a nearby Chevy Suburban along a state road. In Cortland, ehum, this is quite common people helping others in their time of need. But, what could be seen as good gesture towards others, ended in tragedy. According to local police, all four girls were killed after another SUV plowed into the back of  the broken down Suburban .  Police say that the dri...
