Drugs are sometimes used to assist a sexual assault. Because of the effects of these drugs, victims may be physically helpless, unable to refuse sex, and can't remember what happened. The drugs often have no color, smell, or taste and are easily added to flavored drinks without the victim's knowledge.
What is coeliac disease?
Coeliac disease (pronounced see-liac, spelled coeliac disease in other countries) is a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.

Acoustic guitar solos make up a slice of a musical genre that has all but vanished from popular music - instrumentals. By instrumentals I mean music that is composed and played by a human using musical instruments...

...is a practice that includes gazing at the sun for nourishment or as a spiritual practice. Looking into the sun is dangerous, and can cause solar retinopathy (damage to the eye's retina) and lead to permanent eye damage or blindness.
Help Protect the Ocean!
Sustainable seafood represents a win-win relationship with our oceans that can endure forever. When humans consume seafood, we leave an indelible mark on the ecosystem. It is critically important for our own well-being, and that of the oceans, that we understand the impacts of our choices.

Unstable nations are usually the ones who supply fossil fuels; therefore, there is the constant need to become off grid and thus, become independent from this type of production.
Graphene has an extremely high electrical conductivity, allowing electrons to fly though it almost like photons (particles of light) through a vacuum.
The Big Bang!
But what is this time machine, actually? Firstly it’s an impressive structure, then you try and put below the border between France and Switzerland, near Geneva, the biggest, most complex scientific instrument in the world, to date.
anymede is the largest satellite in our solar system. It is larger than Mercury and Pluto, and three-quarters the size of Mars. If Ganymede orbited the Sun instead of orbiting Jupiter, it would easily be classified as a planet.
Resembling a giant pizza covered with melted cheese and splotches of tomato, ripe olives and basil, Io is the fourth largest and most volcanically active Galilean Moon in the Solar System.
A bit larger than Earth’s moon and with over 400 active volcanoes and Volcanic plumes of sulfur and sulfur dioxide that rise over 300 kilometers (190 miles) above the surface, Io is primarily composed of silicate rock surrounding a molten iron or iron sulfide core. Unlike most satellites in the outer Solar System, which are instead mostly composed of water ice. Io’s surface is also dotted with more than 100 mountains that have been uplifted by extensive compression at the base of the moon’s silicate crust. Some of these peaks are taller than Earth’s Mount Everest. The materials produced by this volcanism provide material for Io’s thin, patchy atmosphere and Jupiter’s extensive magnetosphere.
Although Io always points the same side toward Jupiter in its orbit around the giant planet, the large moons Europa and Ganymede perturb Io’s orbit into an irregularly elliptical one. Thus, in its widely varying distances from Jupiter, Io is subjected to tremendous tidal forces. These forces cause Io’s surface to bulge in and out by as much as 100 meters (330 feet)! This tidal pumping generates a massive amount of heat within Io, keeping much of its subsurface crust in liquid lava form seeking any available escape route to the surface to relieve the pressure. Thus, the surface of Io is constantly renewing itself, filling in any impact craters with molten lava lakes and spreading smooth new floodplains of liquid rock. The composition of this material is not yet entirely clear, but theories suggest that it is largely molten sulfur and its compounds (which would account for the multiple coloring) or silicate rock.
Io’s orbit, keeping it at more or less a cozy 422,000 kilometers (262,000 miles) from Jupiter, cuts across the planet’s powerful magnetic lines of force, where Io receives about 3,600 rem of radiation per day, turning it into a electric generator that can develop 400,000 volts across itself and create an electric current of 3 million amperes. This current takes the path of least resistance along Jupiter’s magnetic field lines to the planet’s surface, creating lightning in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere.
In 1979, the two Voyager spacecraft revealed Io to be a geologically active world, with numerous volcanic features, large mountains, and a young surface with no obvious impact craters. The Galileo spacecraft performed several close flybys in the 1990s and early 2000s, obtaining data about Io’s interior structure and surface composition. These spacecraft also revealed
Further observations have been made by Cassini–Huygens in 2000 and New Horizons in 2007, as well as from Earth-based telescopes and the Hubble Space Telescope as their technology has advanced.
