Studies Show Male Circumcision Reduces HIV Risk in Half
Two long awaited studies from Africa show that a man's risk of getting the AIDS virus heterosexually is cut in half if he is circumcised. As we hear from VOA's David McAlary in Washington, public health experts say circumcision can be a new weapon in the anti-HIV arsenal.
The findings are so strong that the U.S. government agency sponsoring the trials, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, halted them several months early so the uncircumcised men in them could take advantage of the procedure.
At the World Health Organization, the head of its HIV/AIDS Department, Dr. Kevin DeCock, says male circumcision has the potential to prevent perhaps millions of infections in the coming years.
But he warns that the procedure is not completely protective.

Papa John's Sucks
My roommate tried to order Papa John's for the 2nd time in two weeks. It didnt work. Here is the e-mail he sent their corporate office:
For the time second in a month I have recieved coupons to your branch at 533 Washington St, Brigton, MA 02135. This branch sucks I have waited a total of half hour and they were never able to complete my order. It is a really simple order: Ready..... it is a large half pepperoni half cheese with 2 20 oz. cokes. First off I've waited 5 mins on a hold at 6 pm on a monday. Second they consistently have problems with coupons. If the coupon is for 11.99 the bill comes out to 16.99. This coupon is from their store, it has their address on it. I only order from you store for your garlic sauce, but because your branch sucks so much I will never order papa johns. Seriously I challenge you to place an order using a coupon to this branch on a Monday evening. Please let me know when you have fired everyone from that branch. Seriously it is worst customer service ever. Try ordering-really......it is impossible. I have wasted a half hour on 2 phone orders for nothing. I was very calm the entire time. These people just cant figure it out. It is so frustrating. I would ask for a coupon for a pizza but obviously its pointless at this branch.
