Another child ‘cured’ of HIV relapses

When news of the Mississippi baby who was “functionally cured” of HIV broke in 2013, a woman in Italy went to her doctors. Much like her own child, the American girl had been born with HIV, and had immediately received antiretroviral therapy following her birth. Now, doctors were announcing that the Mississippi baby had remained virus free for 10 months after stopping the treatment. Aggressive, early intervention had cured her, doctors said. So, when the mother in Italy saw the good news, she asked her child’s physicians to do the same. She wanted her three-year-old off the drugs, and they agreed.

Haunting music video uses 3D imaging to find the child within

Yoann Lemoine has directed music videos for some of pop’s biggest stars, including Lana Del Rey, Katy Perry, and Drake. But Lemoine doesn’t just make videos for other people. The French director is also a musician, creating complex and layered songs under the moniker Woodkid. For one of his latest songs, “The Golden Age,” Lemoine has combined his talents, pairing the 10-minute-long track with a strange and symbolic video that uses a 3D scanner to juxtapose new technology with black-and-white images of life deep in the country.

The video starts with the figure of a man slowly sliding into shot. It’s almost as if he’s being 3D printed: as the camera tracks down his body, we see his leg bones appear to coalesce under his skin. The camera…

Samsung child labor allegations contradict recent audit

The 2014 edition of Samsung’s annual Sustainability Report was issued a few days ago and enumerated a long list of improper employment practices among the Korean company’s Chinese suppliers. What it did not find, however, were any instances of child labor, giving the 100 suppliers that were audited in China a clean bill of health at least on that metric. Contradicting those Samsung inspections is a report today form China Labor Watch (CLW) that alleges multiple instances of child labor at the Shinyang Electronics factory in Dongguan.  CLW is scathing in its dismissal of Samsung’s social responsibility reports as mere advertisements that “don’t have any real value for the workers.”

Li Qiang, Executive Director at CLW, goes on to describe…

Volvo’s inflatable car seat breathes new life into child safety

Child car seats are essential for infant and toddler safety, but that doesn’t mean that parents are happy to use them. The seats are bulky and heavy, and they’re a pain to position correctly. But what if you could inflate a child seat once it was in position and then deflate it and stuff it into a bag when you’re finished? That could soon be a reality if Volvo’s new concept rear-facing child restraint makes it into production. The Swedish carmaker’s concept seat has a built-in pump that can inflate it in just 40 seconds, and deflated, the whole package is about 18 x 20 x 8 inches (45 x 50 x 20cm) — portable enough to fit into some luggage or a large bag. It weighs just over 11 pounds (5kg).

This isn’t the first time that a…

Canadian teen convicted of child pornography after spreading explicit photos of boyfriend’s ex

Sexting photos of yourself can be perilous, but sexting photos of somebody else could lead to jail time. A teenage girl in Canada has been convicted of distributing child pornography after she sent around five explicit pictures of a girl she found on her boyfriend’s phone, CNN reports. The 16-year old defendant is being tried as a minor, and is out on bail while awaiting sentencing.

“I had trouble understanding text language.”

The trouble began back in November 2012 when the defendant found out that her boyfriend was receiving sexts from his ex-girlfriend. After making threats on Facebook, the defendant commandeered her boyfriend’s phone and sent out the explicit pictures she found (of his ex) to several friends. It’s hardly the stuff…

Child porn bust takes half of Tor’s hidden sites offline

Tor1_2040_large

A man in Ireland believed to be behind Freedom Hosting, the biggest service provider for sites on the encrypted Tor network, is awaiting extradition on child pornography charges, reports The Independent. Denied bail until there is a ruling on the extradition request, Eric Eoin Marques has been described by an FBI special agent as “the largest facilitator of child porn on the planet,” and faces up to 30 years in prison if tried in the US.

The Tor (short for “the onion router”) network is designed to anonymize traffic, with a layered structure by which users re-route each other’s requests through a web of computers multiple times, obfuscating the identity of the sender and receiver. Numerous reports claim that Freedom Hosting users were…
