Porn not only messes with young men’s minds, but their bodies too

Today 19:04 GMT

In a twisted way, male porn stars almost become role models, with impressionable young minds going away with the feeling that porn doesn’t just portray a certain kind of sex (an option), but, rather the only kind of sex worth having.

There’s been much concern about the effect of net porn on young minds, including director-campaigner Beeban Kidron’s 2013 documentary, InRealLife. What’s striking is that this is one of the first generations to be overloaded from an early age with easily accessible hardcore internet porn.

Incumbents pitch similar crime reduction plans in battle for Scarborough-Agincourt

Today 19:04 GMT

The battle for Scarborough-Agincourt has pitted two veteran city councillors against each other, who both share similar political platforms, in their bid for the council seat.

Council seat endorsements play strategic role in run-up to 2018 municipal election. After what has already been a violent year, both incumbents have committed to crime reduction plans. Kelly said along with increased community policing, the best way to tackle crime, is to starve gangs of their membership by investing in social programming.

Today 04:14 GMT

The smartest insight and analysis, from all perspectives, rounded up from around the web:. "Shriveled and sickly," the once mighty Sears "limped into bankruptcy" this week, said Suzanne Kapner at The Wall Street Journal.

Leroy Sané adds the finishing touch as Manchester City hammer Burnley

Today 15:24 GMT

It might not do him any harm to realise how well Manchester City can operate without him, especially against sides as limited as Burnley.

The only possible complaint was that City might have won by an even greater margin, such was their total control, though when Riyad Mahrez and Leroy Sane added stylish goals in the closing minutes it hardly seemed to matter. Sergio Aguero always scores against Burnley, he went into this game with six goals from six meetings, and it took him a mere 17 minutes to make it seven in seven.
