From VoiceOfAmerica By Joe De Capua A new study says pregnancy may help protect HIV-positive women from developing full-blown AIDS. The study appears in the October 1st issue of the Journal of Infectious Diseases. Dr. Timothy Sterling of Vanderbilt University is the senior author of the study. He says there were surprising findings for HIV-positive women who were taking anti-retroviral drugs. “We found that the women who became pregnant during the study period had a lower risk of progressing to AIDS-defining events or death than the women who did not become pregnant. This was an observational study just looking at 759 women who were seen at some point during the study period, which was between January 1997 and December 2004,” he says. Tango’s Take

From The New York Times By Katyhryn Shattuck AS he anxiously counted the minutes until he would propose to Emily Cappella on Aug. 24, Guildry Santana ran down his checklist: Reservation at La Palapa, the Mexican restaurant in the East Village where they had their first date two years earlier. Done. Engagement ring removed from box and tucked discreetly into pants pocket. There. And this: a photographer lurking at the crowded intersection of Eighth Street and Astor Place, with instructions to snap his shutter the instant Mr. Santana dropped to bended knee. Tango’s Take

From Reuters VENICE (Reuters) - Throwing rice at newly-weds will soon be banned in Venice as the city steps up its fight against pigeons soiling its squares and chipping away at monuments. The mayor of the canal city is preparing a measure to stop pigeons banqueting outside the central Palazzo Cavalli, where civil weddings are celebrated, municipal police chief Marco Agostini said on Monday. Tango’s Take Typical. The Italians, the world’s most unapologetic pasta eaters, are banning rice at weddings. What about Asian-Italians and Latin-Italians (if either exist)? What are they going to do at their weddings with dishes that require rice? Without the rice, arroz con pollo is just chicken, man. We sense some nefarious presence here. We wonder if Silvio Berlusconi owns any noodle companies.
From Reuters BERLIN (Reuters) - Staff at a German butcher's shop were shocked to discover a customer had hidden two sex toys in their sausages for transport to Dubai, police said Wednesday. "It was two latex dildos with a natural look," said a spokesman for police in the southwestern city of Mannheim. After shopping there earlier in the day, the man, who spoke broken English, returned to the butcher's with two large "Schwartenmagen" sausages. He asked a shop assistant to wrap and cool them until he departed for Dubai the next day. Tango’s Take This guy is lucky that they caught him on the German side. Music producer Dallas Austin got caught with some ya-yo (that’s cocaine, whitey) in Dubai. He would have done jail time were it not for the intervention of some friends from Washington and that was only going to go up his nose. Hi-ooooooooo! Thank God he didn’t try to send a hamster.

From LiveScience Whether we’re looking for someone to date or sizing up a potential rival, our eyes irresistibly lock on to good-looking people, a new study finds. Participants, all heterosexual men and women, fixated on highly attractive people within the first half-second of seeing them. Single folks ogled the opposite sex, of course. But those in committed relationships more often eyed beautiful people of the same sex. Tango’s Take
