*In Britain, poll indicates, 23% ‘unwilling’ to have a Jew in the family:
Nearly a quarter of British respondents to a poll on attitudes to minorities in Western Europe said they would be unwilling to accept Jews as family members.

*Report: ATF Routinely Lets Gun Dealers Who Fail Inspections Slide:
Senior officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have routinely overlooked reports of violations and let gun dealers in breach of gun laws keep their licenses,The New York Times reports. Several current and former law enforcement officials told the Times inspectors often discover and report back on serious violations only to have ATF officials overrule their recommendations and let gun dealers get off with a warning. In one case, a gun store was cited for repeatedly failing to conduct background checks before selling firearms. Another gun dealer sold a weapon to a man who admitted to being a felon. In both cases, as well as many others, ATF supervisors downgraded the recommended penalties and allowed the stores to remain open, according to the report. Over the course of one year starting in October 2016, more than half of about 11,000 inspected gun stores were cited for violations—but less than 1 percent of those inspections reportedly resulted in a revoked license.
*Britain says militant Islamist threat to stay high and may rise further:
The threat posed by Islamist militants to Britain is expected to remain high for the next two years and could even rise, the interior ministry said on Sunday, on the first anniversary of an attack that killed eight people in central London. The current threat level to Britain is assessed as severe, meaning an attack is highly likely. The government said it had foiled 25 Islamist militant plots since June 2013 – 12 of those since March 2017 – and was currently handling over 500 live operations. Britain will publish a revised counter-terrorism strategy on Monday designed to cope with what it said was a shift in the threats the country faces as militants of all ideologies adopt new tactics. “In summary we expect the threat from Islamist terrorism to remain at its current, heightened level for at least the next two years, and that it may increase further,” the ministry said in a statement.

*LBN-COMMENTARY by Tyler Durden: Starbucks employees are bristling after being forced to sit through an entire day of training on racial bias on Tuesday, following an April incident in which a Philadelphia manager called the police on a pair of black men who were sitting in the store without having purchased anything, which sparked a nationwide protest and culminated with Starbucks becoming “America’s largest public toilet.”
*LBN- INVESTIGATES: Sex
1. Infertility Is Far More Common Than You May Think: Infertility can be devastating, but research suggests it’s far more common than you may think. For example, a study published earlier this year found that infertility impacts one in eight women, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that about six percent of married women aged 15 to 44 are still unable to get pregnant after a year of unprotected sex, and about 12 percent of women have difficulty carrying a pregnancy to full term.
2. Men Have A G-Spot: Men have an area on their body similar to the sought after female “g-spot” which, when stimulated, can cause extreme pleasure. The area is known as the prostate, and is located right under his bladder. It can be reached by placing a finger inside of his anus and moving it in a circular motion.
3. Women Think About Sex….A lot: Society may make women out to be dainty flowers who wouldn’t dare have sexy thoughts on their own, but in reality, they think about sex a lot and would like to have more of it. For example, one recent survey found that about 53 percent of women were not having as much sex as they would like, and nearly 75 percent of women involved in the survey expressed a desire to make love at least three times a week.
4. Sex Can Improve Memory In Women: A recent study found that frequent “penis in vagina” sex can also help improve a woman’s ability to remember words and phrases. It does this by increasing the blood flow to the hippocampal region of the brain, and although the same can be accomplished via any aerobic activity, it’s far to fun to do with sex.
5. Apples Are Aphrodisiacs: We’ve all heard of aphrodisiacs such as strawberries and oysters helping to put men and women in the mood, but what about apples? One 2014 study found that women who ate apples more than once a day reported better self-lubrication and overall sexual function compared to women who ate less than one apple a day.
