Now a bra with gun for self-defence
ANI
New York: The National Rifle Association's annual convention in the US unveiled an assortment of female-friendly gun accessories, including a bright pink bra with a gun holster.

The NRA wants gun-loving ladies to pack heat in style.

Lacy lingerie linked to a gun holster was on display at last weekend's convention in Houston, along with several other female-friendly accessories, like a bubblegum pink NRA T-shirt, his-and-hers rifle sets, and bumper stickers that read, "A Woman With a Gun Has More Fun!" the New York Daily News reported.

To use the bra gun holster, "simply pull up your shirt with one hand and pull down on your pistol with the other," a product description on NRA's website instructs.

The holsters are made by Flashbang and can clip to any bra. They sell for $39.99.  ANI

Erratic climate, not humans, killed giant animals

Melbourne: Most species of gigantic animals that once roamed Australia were extinct by the time humans arrived, according to a new study that blames inexorable and erratic climate for their mysterious disappearance.

A major review of the available evidence challenges the claim that humans were primarily responsible for the demise of the megafauna in a proposed "extinction window" between 40,000 and 50,000 years ago, and points the finger instead at climate change.

Breast milk ingredient may end infant deaths
ANI
Washington: An ingredient that naturally occurs in breast milk might be used to prevent premature babies from developing a deadly intestinal condition that currently is largely incurable, a new study has revealed.

The story begins with a baby who is born too early, meaning before 36 weeks gestation, said senior author David Hackam and co-director of the Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center at Children's Hospital. Once stable, typically the baby is fed with formula because often breast milk is not readily available to premature infants.

Woman takes six months to change partner's fashion
ANI
Melbourne: Six and a half months, to be precise, is the point where women decide enough is enough, and start to demand changes in their man's fashion sense, a new survey has revealed.

According to the survey by Marks and Spencer and Oxfam, researchers found that the top five fashion turn-offs for women were meggings (tight male leggings), onesies, leather trousers, three-quarter-length trousers and flip-flops. Men's five pet hates were onesies, jeggings (leggings styled to look like denim jeans), velour tracksuits, animal-print clothing and boob tubes.
