A French hand sanitiser company called Merci Handy has dispatched women to cup strangers' crotches in return for a donation to a charity that supports men's cancers.

Recently a trio of pickup artists got famous on the Internet, when they went around motorboating, in order to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Huffington Post reported.

Perhaps in response to the motorboating moneymaker, the company decided to get women to cup strangers' crotches in return for 13.50 dollar donation, according to Blame It On The Voices.

The women managed to raise $700 according to Gawker.

A new bill in bill would require adult film actors to wear protective goggles, Salon reports.

The bill -- Measure B -- Bill AB 640 -- gained national attention earlier by proposing that actors in the porn industry be required to wear condoms to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections.

But the most recent proposed draft, in addition to mandating condom use -- requires that "personal protective equipment" be used to "prevent contact of an employee's eye; skin, mucous membranes, or genitals with the blood or OPIM-STI of another."

A Brazilian man has cheated death by being pulled alive from his grave after a mourner spotted earth moving in the Sao Paulo cemetery.

His rescue was captured on camera, where the footage shows stunned paramedics lifting the man's body out of the grave while he moves his hands and arms, the Mirror reported.

The unnamed man owes his life to a woman, who was visiting a family tomb, and heard noises coming from the ground, before noticing the earth of a grave moving nearby.

The "terrified" lady asserted that she then saw the man trying to get out of the grave.

The man, a former city hall worker, reportedly ended up in the grave after being badly beaten up in a fight.

Playing pop-music boosts solar panels' efficiency

Researchers have developed certain type of solar cells which can convert sunlight into electricity more efficiently when exposed to acoustic vibrations of pop music.

Steve Dunn at QueenMaryUniversity in London and James Durrant at Imperial College London are working on zinc oxide solar panels, a cheaper, more flexible variant of traditional silicon-based solar cells, Live Science reported.

However, the only drawback is that its efficiency is just 1.2 per cent, a small fraction of what silicon is capable of.

In order to improve this, the researchers took advantage of zinc oxide's another properties. Nanoscale rods of the material wobble in response to mechanical stress, such as the vibrations produced by sound, and generate an electric field.

Dunn said that they tried their initial tests with various types of music, including pop, rock and classical and found that rock and pop were the most effective, most probably because they have a wider range of frequencies.

Researchers found that 50 per cent increase in efficiency, rising from 1.2 per cent without sound to 1.8 per cent with sound.

It was reported that these types of panels can be deployed in noisy public places, such as next to busy roads.

Moments before taking the stage at a hotel to celebrate his close victory over City Councilor John Connolly, Boston mayor-elect Marty Walsh took phone calls from major dignitaries including President Barack Obama and Mayor Tom Menino.

Vice President Joe Biden initially called former Ted Kennedy staffer Marty Walsh to congratulate and started the phone call saying "You son of a gun!"

Biden later called the correct Walsh but missed him and left a voicemail congratulating him on his win in the race according to Walsh.

The mixup is a common occurrence for the lesser known former staffer according to those with knowledge of the phone call.
