And, as with many traditional methods, slip-ups happen. “Over the past six months or so I have seen a small increase in women informing me they have used contraceptive apps, because they want a more natural method,” says Tracey Forsyth, nurse manager in contraception and sexual health at the British Pregnancy Advisory Service – the leading provider of abortion services in the UK. “The reason the method fails is that the client wasn’t able to take their temperature and took a risk and had sex on a “red day”.” … [Read more...] about Can an app really provide effective birth control?

The atrocities being committed on the ground in Aleppo by Iranian proxies fighting alongside the Syrian regime, and from the skies by Russian planes, as horrifying as they are, should come as no surprise.

On that point, there is good news to be had: bitcoin is down to just over $10,000, almost half the level it was trading at a month ago. If it continues to fall, we might be able to return to worrying about more conventional sources of climate change, like the automotive industry, plane travel, and Donald Trump. … [Read more...] about Bitcoin’s energy usage is huge – we can’t afford to ignore it
