As you may imagine, a story is given a ;mature; rating for explicit sex scenes. But stories also can be labeled mature if they include self harm themes or scenes, like those focused on suicide or eating disorders, for example. Depictions of violence #8212; including sexual, verbal, emotional and physical abuse #8212; will give a story a mature rating, as well.Up until the end of 2018, Wattpad had siphoned off its "sexier " stories into a dedicated app called After Dark. But that app has since been shut down. Given the huge demand for mature stories #8212; a search for Wattpad stories by the keyword "mature " led to 155,000 results, for example #8212; the company was failing a significant portion of its readership by not making it easier to surface and filter for this content.

It s a little short of a year since Sony s stricter policies regarding sexual content and themes in video games on the PlayStation 4 platform went into play. Since then we ve seen several games large and small censored on the platform but not on others. It doesn t stop at overly sexual content but also includes partial nudity, games with swimsuits, all sorts of themes that Sony had no problem with until early 2019 when the policy change dealt a hard blow to many indie games and has even affected some AAA titles.However, these censorship policies have only applied to more risque content. Apparently showing skin is frowned upon, but dicing people up with blades or blowing them away in a hail of gunfire is okay. You know my stance is that games are games, and they should remain untouched and appropriately rated by the ESRB, PEGI, or other systems to ensure that it doesn t end up in the hands of younger players without a parent or guardian purchase.

While 50 per cent growth in two quarters will have the streaming service heads grinning in glees, the Indian consumer has some way to go before reaching the high solo viewing habits of those in Europen markets.
WhatsApp has been discovered to have a critical vulnerability that could have allowed attackers to remotely access files from a Windows or Mac computer. The vulnerability, which has been fixed by Facebook, could be exploited using the WhatsApp desktop application. It was a mix of multiple high severity flaws that existed within the WhatsApp desktop application. Some of those flaws were also a part of the WhatsApp Web client that works on Web browsers. The vulnerability essentially allowed for cross site scripting (XSS) that could be used by remote attackers.PerimeterX researcher Gal Weizman discovered the WhatsApp vulnerability that has been tracked as CVE 2019 18426. The researcher stated that the security loophole existed within the Content Security Policy (CSP) of WhatsApp that allowed for XSS attacks on the desktop app. The flaw in the CSP also impacted the WhatsApp Web client to some extent as it provided space to alter rich preview banners with malicious content.

Nikesh and Sonu, who were considered to be the first gay couple in Kerala who got married, approached the HC on Monday for legalising their marriage under the Special Marriage Act 1954. A single bench admitted the writ petition and sent notices to the state and central governments.The petitioners contented that the lack of provisions for people of same sex to marry amounted to discrimination and violation of Article 19 (1)(a) and Article 21 of the Constitution.

"I joke that I left swimming with the sharks at ICM to go swimming with actual sharks, " laughs Pier Nirandara, underwater photographer, YA author and mdash; after taking a nearly yearlong break between jobs to dive around the world mdash; director of development, international content, at Columbia Pictures. "If I can face a shark head on, Hollywood doesn #39;t seem so daunting. " The Thailand raised, PADI certified (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) rescue scuba diver is certainly not the only one in the entertainment industry obsessed with exploring the great unknown of the world #39;s oceans (see James Cameron, Tom Cruise and Nina Dobrev), but she #39;s the first to formally launch a Hollywood club dedicated to it. "It #39;s not as common as, say, people who play golf, but we #39;re definitely around, " says Nirandara, who recognized a shared passion among other execs during meetings and industry events. As of mid December, she #39;s bringing together divers mdash; including FMM Productions #39; Matt Groesch, ICM #39;s Andrew Murphy and Hodson Exports #39; Morgan Howell mdash; to create a community where members can find a dive buddy and go on excursions both local and far flung. "Once you #39;ve dived with someone and all goes well, you have this bond you #39;re not able to replicate in other situations, " she says. Hollywood Divers (the name is a work in progress) "is really about building and forging that community and creating a link between these two worlds. "
