A new study that has drawn criticism from transgender activists finds most teens “come out” as transgender after belonging to a peer group in which multiple friends identify as trans. Additionally, the study shows most young people announcing they are transgendered have already been identified with at least one mental health disorder.In the study – published at PLoS ONE – that focused on teens who are predominantly female, Lisa Littman, an assistant professor of behavioral and social sciences at Brown University, found 87 percent of the young people were reported by their parents to have “come out” as trans after increased time spent on social media and the Internet and after “cluster outbreaks” of gender dysphoria among their groups of friends.

LeBron James is a Los Angeles Laker, headed west to revive Showtime and perhaps a rivalry with the Celtics. He will forever be best known as a Cleveland Cavalier, for whom the son of Akron has played in two stints, 11 years total, having left, come home, and left again. For four seasons in between, the Miami Heat were the beneficiary of his talents. He’s made generous decisions (pledging $41 million to send Akron students to college) and ill-conceived decisions (like, well, The Decision). He’s made 14 All-Star teams, six All-Defensive teams, won four Most Valuable Player awards, and celebrated three NBA championships. His teams have reached the NBA Finals eight straight seasons, his last conference finals defeat coming against a previous generation of Celtics, his most recent conference finals victory coming against an ascending generation of Celtics. He’s in the argument as the greatest basketball player of all time. If he plays in Hollywood like he’s played … [Read more...] about The story of LeBron James and the 2003 Boston summer league
SCAMMERS posing as BT engineers are fleecing Brits of nearly £8,000 using new con tactics that let them access victims' computers remotely. Those affected, including pensioners, receive calls on their landline phones from fraudsters claiming there are security problems with their internet or bank account. David Couldwell's NatWest savings account was drained of £7,767 by a fake BT engineer who took control of his computer. The 73-year-old was told his router had been hacked and urgent security tests were needed. He agreed to the tests and felt reassured when the caller got his router to 'flash'. But he then accessed David's computer and the pensioner was told he would be given £500 for his inconvenience. He provided his account details and £5,000, not £500, was placed in his account. David was told he needed to refund the money, which he did, but the cash had in fact been transferred from one of his other accounts and wasn't a new payment. When he alerted his … [Read more...] about Brits being targeted by fake BT engineers who access computers remotely and empty bank accounts
BRITISH comedian Sacha Baron Cohen tricked US lawmakers to back giving toddlers guns in his controversial new show Who Is America? The Ali G star, 46, was filmed speaking to politicians who supported a fictitious programme to teach three-year-olds how to use guns. His new Channel 4 show sees him pose as an Israeli anti-terror expert who gets two US congressmen to voice support for his fake “Kinderguardians” scheme. The project includes a fake video featuring children's songs and "gunimals" - weapons adorned with soft toys - that would help kids confront the school shootings that have plagued the US for the past decade. Republican congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Joe Wilson along with former Senate Republican leader Trent Lott enthusiastically back the idea. The seven-episode series launches on US channel Showtime on Sunday and will hit UK screens on Monday.
