New App Let’s Males Check Their Sperm Count Proving There Truly Is An App For Everything!

(PCM) It has been said many times that there truly is an app for everything and we can certainly agree, especially now that it has been revealed that there is a new app that allows males to check their sperm count. We suppose there is not very much difference between this and the ovulation predictor apps geared towards women.

The app comes from the folks over at Medical Electronic System and is called Yo Home Sperm Test. The company is labeling the app as the world’s first sperm tester to be powered via a smartphone app. Men now have the ability to test their sperm counts from the comfort of home and the company has even created several hilarious how-to-videos to teach men just the way the app and device operate.

Analyzing how fast sperm is moving can be vital to determining fertility, so it is definitely something that men should want to keep an eye on especially if they are in the process of trying to start a family. The company claims that their app also allows men to avoid the awkwardness of going to the clinic to have their sperm count tested several times a month.

The testing process involves the app taking a video of the sperm under the microscope, and then completing a series of simple analyses from the clip. The test takes just two minutes to provide results. The app provides users with in-depth information about their result, which the company claims to be 97 per cent accurate.

Film Director Casey Tebo Steals Clam Chowder Ingredients To Prove An Important Point

(PCM) When film director Casey Tebo discovered that one of his films had been illegally downloaded from a torrent site and then passed around among the employees of a certain grocery store he was incredibly angered and decided to take revenge into his own hands.

Tebo entered the store and began stealing the ingredients that would be used to make clam chowder. Tebo ended up getting caught, however not without strongly making his point to the store about the effect that illegal downloading has on the artist and the industry. Tebo feels very strongly that online piracy is the same as theft and he felt that he had to make a stand and do his part in an attempt to battle this ongoing issue.

Tebo is best known for his indie horror film “Happy Birthday” and for directing live performances from bands such as Aerosmith, Judas Priest and Motley Crue. He also won an Emmy award for his work on ESPN E:60’s Dream On: The Stories of Boston’s Strongest.

After a recent conversation with a friend where it was revealed that the friend had seen Tebo’s recent film “Happy Birthday”, Tebo asked where his buddy had seen the film. The friend admitted that some guy had brought it into work. Tebo innocently asked if it was via DVD, however eventually his friend admitted that the guy had illegally downloaded the film from a torrent site and shared it with various co-workers at the store.

Tebo’s “Happy Birthday” film had a tiny budget with only three investor putting in about $500k, so after speaking with some other friends Tebo decided to take his revenge on the store that felt it was okay to steal his creative property. He figured just go to the grocery store and begin stealing the ingredients to make a clam chowder. If he got caught he would simply tell the police “He steals my sh*t, why can’t I steal his sh*t”?

Tebo created a video to go along with the revenge plan aptly titled “PSA (Pirates Suck A**)” which has been posted on YouTube and is quickly going viral. In the video Tebo can be seen taking about $30 worth of groceries, however he is caught by a store employee in the parking lot. The employee threatens to call the cops however Tebo protests saying that if it is okay for the employees of the grocery store to steal from his industry, why can’t he steal from theirs?

Tebo did eventually return the stolen ingredients, however he definitely made sure to get his point across about the ongoing issue of internet piracy. Check out the video here!

Can Playing Techno Beats For Test Tube Babies Really Make Them Bigger? Science Says Yes!

(PCM) Researchers at the Altra-vita IVF clinic in Moscow were stunned to learn that playing a loud and pulsating techno beat for test tube babies appears to have a significant effect on making them grow larger and turn into embryos.

An experiment was conducted by the researchers where a 24-hour loop of techno music was played for eggs in test tubes and the results were astonishing. The eggs became more fertilized and the number of embryos that were usable increased by about a fifth.

The results of the experiment were revealed at the Fertility Conference that was held in Edinburgh where it was explained in layman’s terms that the so-called “techno eggs” were slightly more likely to grow into embryos and a lot more likely to develop to the point that they could be placed into the womb.

Techo music appeared to have a different effect on the test tube eggs than other musical styles that were played. Researchers tried everything from pop and classical to metal, however it was techno tracks that featured a steady pulsating beat that showed the most positive results.

It is thought that the reason behind the results is an effect of the pulsating rhythm mimicking the swirling movements that occur within the womb after a natural conception. It is almost like tricking the egg into thinking it is actually inside the womb therefore increasing the overall effectiveness of the IVF procedure.

Dead Grandmother Appears In Ceremony Photo

(PCM) A lot of creepy occurrences take place each and every day and many people often take the time to share these strange and unusual stories via sites such as Reddit and more. Such is the paranormal case of Grandma Lori who sadly died before seeing her grandson graduate to become a priest.

There are various theories floating around as to why ghosts appear to linger around our world and one of the most common is that they have some sort of unfinished business or situation. When people talk about being haunted by a ghost it is usually scary in nature, however in the case of Grandma Lori, her reason for sticking around is apparently to show pride in her family.

Grandma Lori was diagnosed with a terminal illness just before her grandson was able to complete his studies to join the priesthood. She told him she wanted to live long enough to see him become a priest, however sadly she passed away a mere two weeks prior to the ceremony.

The family took tons of photos at ceremony which was of course bittersweet due to Grandma Lori’s recent passing. When looking through the photographs after the ceremony the family was shocked to discover a figure that appears to be Grandma Lori proudly standing behind a bouquet of flowers in the church, watching on as her grandson completes the ceremony.

Worried About Your Dirty Mouth? New Study Shows Swearing Actually Proves Your Honesty

(PCM) A new study was recently published in the Social Psychological and Personality Science journal that appears to prove that the more someone uses swear words the more honest and transparent they are as a person. The researchers used three different experiments on participants to assist with determining a solid relationship between swearing and honesty.

The three experiments were conducted online and participants were asked to truthfully admit how often they use swear words, have their Facebook statuses analyzed, and then their entire state was looked at as a whole to determine the person’s integrity. What was very interesting was the way that the researchers were able to combine the Facebook status data with the particular state information to make a clear determination about which states swore more often and how it related to their overall ethics in general.

Guess which state curses up a storm, but is also the most honest?  Connecticut (at least according to the results of this particular study) Trust us, we would have never guessed that one either!  Overall the study shows that there is a huge correlation between cursing and a person’s level of honesty. This correlation not only stands on an individual level, but also of a sociological scale as well!

After checking out this study we were a bit curious about curse words in general and just how often people use them. It appears that the average person cusses quite a bit. About 0.7% of the words used in an average day by a person are curse words. That may not seem like a lot, but we use personal pronouns such as we, ourselves, and our just as frequently. Just give that some thought, it equals out to about 80 times per day or about three times per hour!

No need to bring out the soap … let the dirty words fly!

The Tears Of A Clown: Ringling Bros. Circus To Shut Down After Nearly 150 Years

(PCM) It has just been revealed that the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be permanently folding their big top tent after operating for nearly 150 years. The circus has always been a huge part of American history, especially the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey show. The closing of the circus can be blamed on low ticket sales, higher cost in production, and lawsuits from animal rights activist’s.

A message was posted on the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus website from Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment the company that produces the circus which read:

“After much evaluation and deliberation, my family and I have made the difficult business decision that Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey will hold its final performances in May of this year. Ringling Bros. ticket sales have been declining, but following the transition of the elephants off the road, we saw an even more dramatic drop. This, coupled with high operating costs, made the circus an unsustainable business for the company.

Nearly 50 years ago, my father founded our company with the acquisition of Ringling Bros. The circus and its people have continually been a source of inspiration and joy to my family and me, which is why this was such a tough business decision to make. The decision was even more difficult because of the amazing fans that have become part of our extended circus family over the years, and we are extremely grateful to the millions of families who have made Ringling Bros. part of their lives for generations. We know Ringling Bros. isn’t only our family business, but also your family tradition.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Circus XTREME will conclude its tour at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., on May 7, 2017, and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Out Of This World will conclude its tour at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., on May 21, 2017. We hope you will come to celebrate this American icon for one last time before our tours conclude.

Our company provides quality, live family entertainment, and we invite you to bring your family to one of our other events, including Marvel Universe LIVE!, Monster Jam, Monster Energy Supercross, AMSOIL Arenacross, Disney On Ice and Disney Live!, as well as future productions.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey has served as inspiration for all of the live entertainment produced at Feld Entertainment. We learned from the circus, and applied those learnings to our other productions. Without Ringling Bros., we wouldn’t have the vibrant live entertainment company that we have today. Ringling Bros. will always be part of Feld Entertainment, and its spirit will live on in every production and project we do.”

In recent years animal rights activists began protesting the circus whenever it would come to town which led to a ton of controversy and several lawsuits that were settled by Feld Entertainment in and out of court. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus was hailed “the greatest show on earth” which quickly became one of the most well-known pop culture catchphrases of all time. Ringling Bros. has two touring circuses this season and will perform 30 shows between now and May. Major stops include Atlanta, Washington, Philadelphia, Boston and Brooklyn.

When the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus first began it was a spectacle to see, especially in the mid-1800’s. There were wild and exotic animals, outrageous costumes, amazing stunts and wholesome family entertainment.  Phineas Taylor Barnum made a traveling spectacle of animals and human oddities popular, while the five Ringling brothers performed juggling acts and skits from their home base in Wisconsin. Eventually, they merged and the modern circus was born. The sprawling troupes traveled around America by train, wowing audiences with the sheer scale of entertainment and exotic animals. The circus was purchased by the Feld family in 1967.

Another major reason for the circus’s overall decline in children being interested in the show. Now that video games, cell phones and the internet have taken over it became much of a challenge to capture the attention of young minds. Let alone have the sit still and become engrossed in an over 2 hour long circus show. It is a sad reality of the times and just how much has truly changed.
