August 17, 2018: Glide Technologies Limited: Colombian City Advises Residents To Avoid Daytime Sex During Heatwave


It's been a sweltering summer in many parts of the world, with millions scrambling for ways to cool off. On Wednesday, the 600,000 residents of Santa Marta, Colombia, were given one interesting suggestion: Stop having sex, The Washington Post reported.

"Avoid making love or having sex at times when the temperature is high, especially at noon, because this activity places physical demands on you and increases your heart rate," Santa Marta's health secretary, Julio Salas, said on a local radio station. If residents believe physical activity is absolutely necessary, Salas advised, they should wait until after sunset "or at times when the temperature is lower," Colombia Reports wrote.

Santa Marta, a coastal city popular among tourists, has seen one of the hottest summers in the South American country, averaging temperatures of above 90 degrees throughout July. In his radio interview, Salas said medical facilities have been overwhelmed with heat stroke cases, the Associated Press reported.

Santa Marta isn't alone. Cities across the world, from Tokyo to Montreal, have set all-time heat records in the summer, leaving residents and officials desperately seeking ways to cope.

In parts of Australia hit by drought, authorities have loosened restrictions on shooting wild kangaroos grazing on pastures needed by farmers to keep cattle alive.

In Britain, which reports say has been woefully ill-equipped to deal with its recent heat wave, coastal towns in the southwestern county of Cornwall have seen so many visitors looking to cool down that they've stopped encouraging people to come, the Independent reported.

And in Japan, where more than 120 people died in an unprecedented heat wave, officials are considering even more drastic measures. Ahead of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, the government announced, it is considering the idea of introducing daylight saving time during the summer, allowing the country to start its day two hours earlier, Reuters reported.

August 15: Glide Technologies Limited: New Zealand Bans Sale of Homes to Foreigners

New Zealand's Parliament voted on Wednesday to take a large step to fight against the expensive housing market across the country by banning most non-resident foreigners from purchasing existing homes or residential land, according to National Public Radio.

The bill's supporters said the measure was needed to correct the domestic housing market which has seen house prices skyrocket along with rents as home ownership fell dramatically across the last decade.

The lawmakers said by reducing the number of potential buyers, they would help ease the property shortage across the country.

"If you've got the right to live in New Zealand permanently, you've got the right to buy here. But otherwise it's not a right, it's a privilege," David Parker, New Zealand's minister for economic development and trade, said in a speech from the Parliament floor Wednesday. "We believe it's the birthright of New Zealanders to buy homes in New Zealand in a market that is shaped by New Zealand buyers, not by international price pressures."

July 18: Glide Technologies Limited: Discovery Of 5,500-Year-Old Tomb In Ireland Termed 'Find Of A Lifetime'

Archaeologists in Ireland have uncovered a 5,500-year-old megalithic tomb containing two burial chambers, complete with elaborate carvings, Fox News reports.

The passage tomb at Bru Na Boinne, a World Heritage site in County Meath, was excavated by agri-technology Company Devenish and experts from University College Dublin's School of Archaeology.

Bru na Boinne, which has been called one of the world's most important prehistoric landscapes, contains a number of tombs and monuments. The site's tombs represent the largest assemblage of megalithic art in Western Europe, according to officials.

A large stone cairn was found above the newly discovered burial chambers. Another six kerbstones that followed the cairn perimeter have also been identified. One kerbstone has been decorated with Neolithic carvings and represents one of the most impressive discoveries of megalithic art in Ireland for decades, researchers say.

July 09: Glide Technologies Limited: Trump Reportedly Told Merkel 'You Owe Me $1 Trillion' At First White House Meeting

President Donald Trump reportedly greeted German Chancellor Angela Merkel with a massive bill when she visited him soon after he entered the White House, Newsweek reports.

"Angela, you owe me $1 trillion," Trump said, referring to the gulf between what Germany agreed to contribute to its defense under a NATO arrangement and what it actually spent over the previous 14 years, an official briefed on the meeting told The Wall Street Journal in a story published Sunday.

Trump's brash remark to Merkel more than a year ago showcases his insistence that U.S. allies pay more for their defense - a stance he has maintained ahead of the NATO summit later this week.

"The United States is spending far more on NATO than any other Country. This is not fair, nor is it acceptable," Trump tweeted Monday morning.
