Somethings we do are more contagious than others.
We are going to collect bras, have professional fitters and nurses come in. Homeless women at the shelter will be fitted and given bras that actually fit while being educated about breast cancer. Boom! Er, uh I mean BOOBS!
I sent an email to appeal. If people are going to use Twitter’s public forum to threaten law abiding citizens then they should expect to get called out on it. That type of talk is not ok. They need to realize it.
Rage-filled drivers have lots of options. They could make their accounts private,…
A large study of 30,000 people in Copenhagen over 14 years found that those who biked to work lowered their risk of death by 40 percent compared to sedentary people. And in the short term, another study of 100 people in Perth, Australia, who replaced some car commutes with bike trips over the course of a year, found the bicycling improved aerobic fitness, cholesterol numbers, and lowered the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
That seems pretty straightforward. But what about the risk of getting crushed by a trash truck? Anyone who’s bicycled even a little bit knows all too well the fear of an encounter with a motor vehicle. Just yesterday the Washington Post reported on a 20-year-old bicyclist who was critically injured after being hit by a car in downtown D.C.

Coming Soon of the Day: Neil Degrasse Tyson Will Host the Sequel of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos
Though it’s been quietly in the works since 2011, Fox has officially confirmed that Carl Sagan’s monumental 1970 sci-ed miniseries Cosmos: A Personal Voyage will be getting an updated sequel next year, which will consist of 13 episodes produced by Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane and hosted by one of the Internet’s most celebrated astrophysicists, Neil Degrasse Tyson. Fox is hoping the show will have as much as of cultural impact as Carl Sagan’s original series, which still remains one of the most watched PBS series in the world to this day.

We walked by this at night on our last evening in Paris and I wished so badly that we could stay another day and visit during business hours.
