I don't know about you, but my profiles contains stuff that I'd rather the authorities didn't see.

homeland security logo The US authorities are set to add questions to immigration arrivals forms asking for IDs used on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. Reports suggest that it is supposedly voluntary to provide such information, but it wouldn't be difficult to drop a few hints, that those not providing such info may not be granted entry, to make it more or less mandatory.

A Notice by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on 06/23/2016 detailed the new question:

CBP Forms I-94 (Arrival/Departure Record) and I-94W (Nonimmigrant Visa Waiver Arrival/Departure Record) are used to document a traveler's admission into the United States. These forms are filled out by aliens and are used to collect information on citizenship, residency, passport, and contact information. The data elements collected on these forms enable the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to perform its mission related to the screening of alien visitors for potential risks to national security and the determination of admissibility to the United States.

Proposed Changes

DHS proposes to add the following question to ESTA and to Form I-94W:

Please enter information associated with your online presence -- Provider/Platform -- Social media identifier.

It will be an optional data field to request social media identifiers to be used for vetting purposes, as well as applicant contact information. Collecting social media data will enhance the existing investigative process and provide DHS greater clarity and visibility to possible nefarious activity and connections by providing an additional tool set which analysts and investigators may use to better analyze and investigate the case.

calvin klein plus-size Not fat enough!

Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley has hit out over an 'outrageous' Calvin Klein advert featuring a supposedly plus-size model.

The Salford actress tweeted two images of svelte-looking underwear model Myla Dalbesio - reportedly a US size 10/UK 14 - and exclaimed:

Tell me this is a joke??

PLUS size?!?! Congrats on giving another generation of girls eating disorders/insecurities.

The image is from an advertising campaign back in 2014, in which plus-size Myla starred alongside supermodels Jourdan Dunn and Lara Stone.

Too fat!

disney maui The depiction of a Polynesian character in a Disney film has prompted 'outrage' across the Pacific islands, with one New Zealand MP saying the portrayal of the god Maui as obese was not acceptable .

Jenny Salesa, who is of Tongan heritage, shared a picture on her Facebook account which said Disney's rendering of Maui in the film Moana resembled a creature that was half pig, half hippo :

When we look at photos of Polynesian men & women from the last 100-200 years, most of our people were not overweight and this negative stereotype of Maui is just not acceptable - No thanks to Disney.

Will Ilolahia, from the Pacific Island Media Association, told Waatea News that Disney's version of Maui did not fit with his heroic endeavours in Pacific creation myths:

He is depicted in the stories that's been handed down, especially in my culture, as a person of strength, a person of magnitude and a person of a godly nature. This depiction of Maui being obese is typical American stereotyping. Obesity is a new phenomena because of the first world food that's been stuffed down our throat.

  Music changes the taste of beer...

High-pitched car alarm music found to turn drinks sour while deep bass hip hop sounds make beer bitter.

chang and glass Scientist have found that soundtracks can influence how drinks and food taste, and even alter alcoholic strength. Drinkers who were served three different types of beer rated them sweeter or sourer according to the music playing at the time.

The Belgium study, led by Dr Felipe Carvalho, of Vrije Universiteit Brussel, said:

Participants rated the beer as significantly sweeter when listening to the sweet soundtrack than when listening to the bitter soundtrack.

And volunteers rated the beer as significantly stronger while listening to the bitter soundtrack Scientists have found soundtracks influence how food and drinks taste, and can even alter alcoholic strength

Volunteers at the Music Instruments Museum in Brussels, Belgium, were asked to taste a beer, and rated the experience, each time under the influence of a different sound stimulus. Participants were not informed that they were, in fact, tasting the same beer each time.

Three type of ambient background music were used ; a Disney-style track - for sweet; a dis-chordant high-pitched notes - for sour; and a deep bass rumbling sound - for bitter.

The researchers concluded:

The results demonstrate that soundtracks that had been specially developed to evoke a specific taste can effectively be used in order to influence the participants beer tasting experience.

However the researchers did not consider whether music selection had any similar effect on drinkers perception of the attractiveness of GoGo dancers.
