Forensics by Kalia and Carolyn

Carolyn’s sister Lizzy is celebrating her birthday, but we’re investigating a crime. We returned home to find Lizzy’s party set-up trashed. The cake was half-eaten, presents were thrown all over, and there was even some bright red stuff dripping off the table. This is clearly a birthday whodunit. Our question: How can we use forensic science to finger the culprit?

What did we do?
There were a lot of possibilities for the bandit: our dad, neighbor, Lizzy, and even a balloon-delivery clown were suspects. We found fiber, saliva, and fingerprint samples at the crime scene, so we gathered hair, saliva and fingerprint samples from each suspect. Then we compared the crime scene evidence to our samples and tried to find a match. We also interviewed all the suspects.

What did we find out?
We found fingerprints at the scene for everybody except the clown, so that didn’t narrow things down much. We had a hard time telling the fibers apart under the microscope, but we used a laser pen to estimate the thickness of each fiber. The crime scene fiber didn’t match any of our suspects! Lastly, Kalia’s cousin helped us with DNA testing for the saliva samples, but the crime scene sample proved to be non-human! After asking questions and recreating the scene, Lizzy confessed to breaking into her presents, but the fiber and DNA evidence pointed to a new and FURRY suspect. It was Sammy the family dog who ate the cake!

What can you do?

  • Practice lifting fingerprints like the CSIs do! Using an artist’s paint brush and some dust from a charcoal briquette, apply a light coating of charcoal dust to a surface with fingerprints. Use clear packaging tape to “lift” any prints you see off the glass, then stick the tape onto white paper. You’ve just captured a fingerprint!
  • Ride your bike through some soft sand, and examine the tire tread pattern that is left behind. How does the pattern change if the tires are under-inflated?
  • One kind of forensic analysis involves splashes and splatters. Fill up some water balloons, and throw them at a dry and level paved surface. What distinguishes the splatter of a balloon that falls straight down, compared to one that hits at an angle?
  • Use this forensics investigation as a science fair project idea for your elementary or middle school science fair! Then tell us about it!

    How to Become a Forensic Psychology

    Forensic Psychologists apply psychology to criminal justice. Although similar in some aspects, forensic psychology is different than forensic science. One major difference is that forensic psychologists look deep into the immense psychological perspectives associated with the crime and apply them to the case so that justice might be served. They frequently deal with legal issues such as news law, and public policies, and are asked to determine the mental state and competency of the defendant at the time of the crime, and throughout the legal proceedings. Each of these issues blends law topics and psychology together, and is essential to the field of Forensic Psychology. Forensic Psychologists also use their knowledge of psychology to analyze a criminal s mind and intent, treat mentally ill offenders, practice within the civil arena, and consult with attorneys.

    M.S. in Forensic Psychology
    Psychology Legal Systems

    Very few academic institutions offer degrees specifically focused on Forensic Psychology. Therefore, individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in Forensic Psychology should take an academic course load centered on criminal justice and psychology classes. Other classes that help prepare students for the field of Forensic Psychology include: cognitive, clinical, criminal investigative, social, and developmental psychology.

    Some forensic psychologists choose to focus their careers exclusively on research, which ranges anywhere from learning how to improve interrogation methods to the detailed assessment of eyewitness testimony. Public policy is another area of interest for forensic psychologists. In this line work forensic psychologists act as researchers helping to design prisons and other correctional facilities. Most often Forensic Psychology includes areas between the conventional options of criminal justice (i.e, law enforcement, academic training, and corrections).

    Most positions within this specialized area require more than a bachelor s degree to be successful. In fact, a doctoral degree is required in order to become a licensed psychologist. For those interested in perusing a career in Forensic Psychology, there are some important undergraduate classes that should be taken. These include: statistics, criminology, abnormal psychology, social psychology, and criminal law. One of the most valuable classes an undergraduate student could take would be motivational psychology. It s helpful for students to understand the motivation behind why people chose to act and think in certain ways early on in their education. Another helpful piece of advice for students interested in the field of Forensic Psychology is to enroll in a bachelor s of science program rather than earn a degree as a bachelor of the arts.

    Persons who have earned M.A. degrees in clinical psychology typically work in institutions, with a Ph.D. holder supervising them. Because forensic psychologists with a master s degree can be paid less than those who have obtained a doctorate, many are often employed at correctional facilities. Master s degree graduates, who attended a college concentrating on cognitive, social, and developmental psychology, generally have more opportunities than those graduating with a clinical degree because they will not be evaluating patients. They can do research for non-profit organizations, or for the government, and may also involve themselves in policy making.

    Over the last 20 years, the field of forensic psychology has maintained a steady growth rate. It is expected that over the next ten years, consultation, research work, and clinical practice in psychology and the law will continue to grow. Positions working with lawmakers, attorneys, and the courts are predicted to have the highest demand. It is also expected that jobs working in colleges and universities, teaching and doing research, will continue to increase. Changing laws and the development of new and innovative ways to deal with juvenile offenders has become popular subjects of exploration amongst forensic psychologists. Their expert advice can be vital to the decisions made regarding such delinquents. Those with doctorate degrees will have an edge over those with master s degrees and will have many more opportunities for employment. Those with only a bachelor s degree will find specializing in this field to be almost impossible.

    Sri Lankan Shishna Massage – Big Lingam Tantra #massage #erection


    Sri Lankan Shishna Massage

    GP writes about his male massage experiences in Sri Lanka

    I was on a 14 day trip to Sri Lanka in 2010 7 days on the beach and 7 days touring the cultural triangle. We arrived at a hotel in Habanara about 5pm to visit the sites the next day; it was a nice modern hotel but as it was out of season, and earily very quiet. The journey from our beach base had been quite hard – 4.5 hours in a minibus so I checked into my room and prepared to have a nap before dinner. In the room was a leaflet detailing the massages and ayervedic health treatments available. As i had two hours to kill, I thought a nice relaxing massage would help ease some of the muscle tension from all that coach travel. I wandered down to the bar area and asked the barman – the only member of staff around – if it was possible to book a massage . He asked when and I said now if possible, seeing as there were so few guests in the hotel. He flashed me a smile, picked up the phone and I presumed was calling for one of the girls from the beauty spa to come and collect me. Instead, another guy turned up in uniform and took over his bar duties. He said follow me and led me to the hut where massages were conducted. The guy was dark skinned, had a smile to die for, and was bigger built than most Sri Lankans but not an ounce of fat on him. He casually said “strip”, threw a towel at me, told me to sit down and then disappeared. I nervously did and it seemed like ages before he returned.

    He came back in the room and said get on the massage table face down quite forcibly, which surprised me and then put on the radio which was tuned to a local station. So much for relaxing whale music then, I thought. No sooner had my face hit the surface of the massage table he tugged at the towel which he’d told me to wrap myself in. I was left exposed and felt a mixture of vulnerability given this was my first massage experience, excitement, and eager anticipation. He started chatting to me which I hated – either you do a relaxing massage or we can have a chat in the bar. But then he said so are you married? I said no and he replied are you looking for a girlfriend or boyfriend? This completely threw me off track as Sri Lankan culture is quite reserved and all I managed to mutter was maybe. I then berated myself for saying something so meaningless! But the next thing I knew he was applying massage oil along the backs of my legs, buttocks letting it drip between my crack. His strong hands then started to massage in the oil and almost immediately as his hands rubbed up my legs he let a thumb linger near my crack. I knew then this was not going to be your average massage. I was so worked up within minutes that I almost came on the spot as he firmly yet softly explored my calves, buttocks and and then he slowly and delicately touched my sack on the down stroke.

    I was already in heaven and thought to myself, I’m not going to see the guy again so go with the flow and just enjoy it. He moved up to my back and shoulders and it was there that I glimpsed the outline of a massive cock through his loose white linen trousers. I was tempted to grab it but resisted. The massage of the shoulders and back wasn’t that great to be honest – almost a token gesture – and luckily he moved back around the table and focused on the my legs and buttocks again. By this time I was so hard I thought I’d explode. Suddenly his long strokes turned much shorter as he zeroed in on my crack. Before I knew what was going on he was probing my willing hole with his fingers with one hand and had somehow pulled my stiff cock down and was massaging it with my balls . It was when he pushed and touched my prostate that I let out a huge groan and he instructed me to turn over. I did and all British reserve had gone now. I didnt care I was butt naked with the biggest hard on I had ever had and was oozing pre-cum. He pushed my legs apart and made me bend my knees as he focused again on my prostate whilst gently massing the tip of my cock. By now I was in oblivion and he expertly continued to massage the cock with one hand and gently stimulate my prostrate with the other.

    After probably 10 minutes of the exquisite sensations, I suddenly started to tense as I could feel I was going to come. Despite willing myself to hold on, I knew it was futile and so for the next 30 seconds I just enjoyed the growing sense of joy. He continued to work on me yet at the same time moved around the side of the table and his cock was exposed, rigid, close to my chest. Inevitably I came, more than I had ever done before, and the spunk hit my chin and cheeks. Amazingly, as I did, so did he all over my chest without anyone even touching it. He disappeared after for about 10 minutes as I composed myself and then re-emerged. Matter of factly he asked was the massage any good. I smiled and he beamed back at me. I didn’t make dinner that night. After wanking myself off twice reliving the whole exoctic experience I slept for 10 hours. We left the next morning, and the staff lined up to bid us farewell. I hardly acknowledged the barman/masseur but am sure I saw a swelling in his trousers, and vowed to return another year. I have had a few male massages since, but none have come anywhere near to this experience. By GP

    N.J. Gov. Chris Christie Pushes Back After Being Spotted on Beach Closed by Government Shutdown

    Chris Christie Visits Beach as Public Turned Away Amid Government Shutdown 0:39

    “That’s where my family is sleeping, so that’s where I’ll sleep,” Christie said during the news conference Sunday. “When I have a choice between sleeping with my family or sleeping alone, I generally like to sleep where my family is.”

    During the news conference, a tanner-looking Christie was asked whether he had gotten any sun, to which he responded that he hadn’t.

    Later Sunday, when the photos surfaced, the governor’s spokesman, Brian Murray, reiterated that sentiment, saying Christie had not, in fact, gotten any sun — because he was wearing a hat while on the beach.

    The photos show that Christie was, indeed, wearing a hat.

    Murray later said on MSNBC that he was being a “smart aleck” when he made the hat comment and that Christie was on the beach for only 45 minutes before heading back to Trenton.

    “They didn’t ask, ‘Are you on the beach?’ They asked, ‘Did you get some sun?'” Murray told MSNBC’s Katy Tur. “So no, he didn’t.”

    He added that the part of the beach Christie was photographed on is part of the governor’s residence and is closed to the public year-round.

    In the shots of the governor enjoying the beach, taken by NJ Advanced Media photojournalist Andrew Mills, Christie is seen with his toes in the sand, lounging back in a beach chair with his wife, Mary Pat.

    “We have a residence in Princeton, as well. And that place is a place where people can go and tour, but they can’t if the government is closed. Am I supposed to move out and stay in a hotel?” Christie asked Monday during a phone interview with WTXF-TV of Philadelphia.

    Mills said the newspaper originally planned to book a plane to photograph reveling beachgoers baking in the sun and enjoying a weekend off along the Jersey Shore in juxtaposition with empty stretches of beach.

    Once at the airport, Mills spotted the governor’s helicopter and knew that Christie was in the area, he said in a Star-Ledger article.

    He decided to try the state residence where Christie could be staying, and in a moment of unparalleled luck, he spotted the governor and his family and took the shot.

    “I really wonder about journalists who spend money flying planes to look for people where they actually said they’d be,” Christie told WNYW-TV of New York.

    Christie defended his use of the beach house, saying: “That’s the way it goes. Run for governor, and you can have the residence.”

    The governor reiterated the sentiment to WTXF, telling those critical of his use of the closed beach: “Well, I’m sorry. They’re not the governor.”

    On Monday morning, Christie tweeted out a photo of a New Jersey beach and noted that a large percentage of the state’s beaches were still open and could be enjoyed by the public.

    “NJ beaches are open in 119 of our our [sic] 130 miles of coastline. Come and enjoy them — but use sunscreen and hydrate!” Christie tweeted.

    NJ beaches are open in 119 of our our 130 miles of coastline. Come and enjoy them–but use sunscreen and hydrate!

    Another beautiful day at the Jersey shore. Our beaches are open & full of people. Come & see for yourself! And you can hit the boardwalk!

    Christie later tweeted again, saying, “Another beautiful day at the Jersey shore. Our beaches are open full of people. Come see for yourself! And you can hit the boardwalk!”

    Ironically, the images accompanying Christie’s tweets were taken by Mills on the same flight during which he snapped the picture of the governor on the closed beach. Christie did not attribute the images to Mills, but they appear as images 18 and 22 in a gallery on

    The shutdown hinged on the state’s budget and legislation to overhaul the state’s biggest health insurer, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield. Christie blamed the shutdown on Democratic Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, who was blocking a vote on a bill to restructure Horizon because he believes it is a bad policy, according to

    The bill has bipartisan support and was approved by the Senate.

    Spiral model in Software Engineering #spiral #software #development, #spiral #model


    In the 1980s; Boehm introduced a process model known as the spiral model. The spiral model comprises activities organized in a spiral, and has many cycles. This model combines the features of the prototyping model and waterfall model and is advantageous for large, complex, and expensive projects. It determines requirements problems in developing the prototypes. In addition, it guides and measures the need of risk management in each cycle of the spiral model. IEEE defines the spiral model as ‘a model of the software development process in which the constituent activities, typical requirements analysis, preliminary and detailed· design, coding, integration, and testing, are performed iteratively until the software is complete.

    The objective of the spiral model is to emphasize management to evaluate and resolve risks in the software project. Different areas of risks in the software project are project overruns, changed requirements, loss of key project personnel, delay of necessary hardware, competition with other software developers and technological breakthroughs, which make the project obsolete.

    TableAdvantages and Disadvantages of Prototyping Model

    • Provides a working model to the user early in the process, enabling early assessment and increasing user’s confidence.
    • The developer gains experience and insight by developing a prototype there by resulting in better implementation of requirements.
    • The prototyping model serves to clarify requirements, which are not clear, hence reducing ambiguity and improving communication between the developers and users.
    • There is a great involvement of users in software development. Hence, the requirements of the users are met to the greatest extent.
    • Helps in reducing risks associated with the software.
    • If the user is not satisfied by the developed prototype, then a new prototype is developed. This process goes on until a perfect prototype is developed. Thus, this model is time consuming and expensive.
    • The developer loses focus of the real purpose of prototype and hence, may compromise with the quality of the software. For example, developers may use some inefficient algorithms or inappropriate programming languages while developing the prototype.
    • Prototyping can lead to false expectations. For example, a situation may be created where the user believes that the development of the system is finished when it is not.
    • The primary goal of prototyping is speedy development, thus, the system design can suffer as it is developed in series without considering integration of all other components.

    The steps involved in the spiral model are listed below.

    1. Each cycle of the first quadrant commences with identifying the goals for that cycle. In addition, it determines other alternatives, which are possible in accomplishing those goals.

    2. The next step in the cycle evaluates alternatives based on objectives and constraints. This process identifies the areas of uncertainty and focuses on significant sources of the project risks. Risk signifies that there is a possibility that the objectives of the project cannot be accomplished. If so, the formulation of a cost-effective strategy for resolving risks is followed.

    3. The development of the software depends on remaining risks. The third quadrant develops the final software while considering the risks that can occur. Risk management considers the time and effort to be devoted to each project activity such as planning, configuration management, quality assurance, verification, and testing.

    4. The last quadrant plans the next step and includes planning for the next prototype and thus, comprises the requirements plan, development plan, integration plan, and test plan.

    One of the key features of the spiral model is that each cycle is completed by a review conducted by the individuals or users. This includes the review of all the intermediate products, which are developed during the cycles. In addition, it includes the plan for the next cycle and the resources required for that cycle.

    The spiral model is similar to the waterfall model as software requirements are understood at the early stages in both the models. However, the major risks involved with developing the final software are resolved in the spiral model. When these issues are resolved, a detailed design of the software is developed.Notethat processes in the waterfall model are followedby different cycles in the spiral model as shown in Figure.

    The spiral model is also similar to the prototyping model as one of the key features of prototyping is to develop a prototype until the user requirements are accomplished. The second step of the spiral model functions similarly. The prototype is developed to clearly understand and achieve the user requirements. If the user is not satisfied with the prototype, a new prototype known as operational prototype is developed.

    Various advantages and disadvantages associated with the spiral model are listed in Table.

    TableAdvantages and Disadvantages of Spiral Model

    • Avoids the problems resulting in risk-driven approach in the software
    • Specifies a mechanism for software quality assurance activities
    • Is utilized by complex and dynamic projects
    • Re-evaluation after each step allows changes in user perspectives, technology advances, or financial perspectives.
    • Estimation of budget and schedule gets realistic as the work progresses.
    • Assessment of project risks and itsresolution is not an easy task.
    • Difficult to estimate budget and schedule in the beginning as some of the analysis is not done until the design of the software is developed.
