Scientists in Israel are exploring another medical use for marijuana: Their research indicates that a compound in the plant helps heal bone fractures. The new study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, found that broken bones healed faster and stronger when the patient received the non-psychoactive compound cannabidiol, or CBD.
“We found that CBD alone makes bones stronger during healing, enhancing the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue,” said Dr. Yankel Gabet, one of the lead researchers, in a statement. “After being treated with CBD, the healed bone will be harder to break in the future.”

Germany has taken in more refugees than any other European nation over the last three years, and doctors and activists are warning that certain inhumane traditions have arrived with them. A German nongovernmental organization, Terre des Femmes, said Tuesday that 13,000 underage girls living in Germany are at risk of being forced to undergo genital mutilation. The number increased by 4,000 in comparison to last year because most of the affected girls had only recently moved to Germany from countries such as Iraq, Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia, where genital mutilation is common among parts of the population and is considered an important step toward adulthood. Described by UNICEF as a violation of girls’ “right to be free from torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment,” female genital mutilation nevertheless continues to be a common tradition across much of Africa and parts of Asia.

The European Commission threatened Wednesday to launch a sanction procedure against Poland, putting Warsaw on a path that could ultimately see it stripped of its EU voting rights. The warning was a reaction to new Polish legislation tightening political control over the country’s courts, which Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans said could “put the judiciary under full political control of the government.” Timmermans also said the Commission plans to launch an infringement procedure against Poland next week for breaching EU law.

Emmanuel Macron’s rise to power is rekindling the Franco-German relationship — at least on the surface. When Angela Merkel gave her support for plans to develop a European fighter jet in Paris last week, France’s president hailed a “profound revolution” in their cooperation — never mind that costs, delivery times and potential developers for the jet are as yet unknown. That project, just like plans to boost French and German language training in each other’s countries, underscores the eagerness to highlight Franco-German initiatives. Merkel has endorsed, albeit in the broadest possible terms, Macron’s calls for deeper eurozone integration, complete with a budget and finance minister. But while goodwill abounds — one French diplomat told a local paper that “everyone is overflowing with ideas” — the cheerful mood does not amount to a revolution. Serious hangups remain when it comes to the German trade surplus, French reform credibility, solidarity between EU countries, bailouts and defense spending, among other topics.

Housework was a woman's job, but one evening, Janice arrived home from work to find the children bathed, one load of laundry in the washer and another in the dryer Dinner was on the stove, and the table set. She was astonished!

It turns out that Chuck had read an article that said, 'Wives who work full-time and had to do their own housework were too tired to have sex'.

The night went very well. The next day, Janice told her Red Hat friends all about it. 'We had a great dinner. Chuck even cleaned up the kitchen. He helped the kids do their homework, folded all the laundry and put it away. I really enjoyed the evening.'

'But what about afterward?' asked her friends. 


'Oh, that.......... Chuck was too tired.'



God is good
