Mississippi Power update 

Here's a number that speaks to the scope of what we're dealing with in South Mississippi. Mississippi Power spokesperson Kurt Brautigam just gave me a rough estimate of customers who are currently able to receive service once they get the grid restored. The number used to be 195,000. Now, a rough estimate is 172,000. "We will restore all customers to service whenever they're able to receive it," he said, "but at this point, it's obvious not all will be ready in the next several weeks." The company has restored power to more than 20 percent of its customers. You can't extrapolate that out and say in 16 days everything will be restored, because there will be tougher areas to get electricity into, but more than 40,000 people have power now than didn't Monday, according to Mississippi Power. There are more than 5,000 outside workers in the area, with another 3,000 arriving today and Sunday. The workers restored 16 more substations yesterday and two-thirds of the total in the area are repaired overall. You can go to the company's Web site for resources in recovering from this disaster. An example is this page that has a list of post-storm actions can be taken.

I read that Masturbation is when people touch their own bodies. People masturbate to enjoy their own bodies and the way they feel, to feel sexual pleasure and sexual feelings. I saw this on amateur picture post is this true ?
I read that It is possible to get pregnant through anal sex if semen (cum) drips out of the anus into the opening of the vagina, which is near the anus. So that's another good reason to use a condom during anal sex. I saw this on nude pic is this true ?
