Intended Consequences: Rwanda's Children of Rape

Intended Consequences. It is estimated that 20,000 children were born as the result of rape during the 1994 Rwandan Genocide that claimed the lives of over 800,000 Tutsis.

Not only do the mothers have to live with memories of this incredibly horrible event, but they along with their children are shunned by other Tutsi survivors. [more inside]

See what's on the slab, shivering with ... rigor mortis?

Find a Death reports a double whammy, as June sees the deaths of Imogen Claire (a Transylvanian) and Jonathan Adams (Dr. Von Scott), both known for their appearances in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. If miss them that badly, you still have a chance to see them on screen at midnight, once and a while. They've been immortalized on screen, and maybe will be in screams, too.

Yahoo! retrospective inspired by 10x10, an online artwork by Jonathan Harris

Yahoo! retrospective inspired by 10x10, an online artwork by Jonathan Harris. We thought Yahoo! Inc.'s 10th birthday would be a great excuse to take a look back and think about how the Internet has developed over the last ten years, becoming an essential part of all of our daily lives. We've created a special site, Yahoo! Netrospective: 10 years, which celebrates the web's history over the last decade. We hope the Yahoo! Netrospective will take you on a trip down memory lane, in a format we think is really cool.--Jerry & David
