Day 17 (33 Days) - Serv’s Food Guide
(Podcast Location: The Unique Geek)
App update: N/A
Guest Additions: Tricia Helfer (BSG)

Blah, blah, blah. I don't find this very helpful honestly. Mostly this one is all about food and places this one guy things we should go to. I've either been to these or don't eat at them. The only thing this one made me think of, was the fact I'd love to see Milliways have a Trader Vic dinner again.

Day 18 (32 Days) -
(Podcast Location: The Unique Geek)
App update: N/A

Audio (and hilariously DragonCon TV) version of the 1-2-4 rules we already had entries for. While it's a bit overkill to have to hear it, again, I know some people don't read the posts on the page because it is a podcast. This was spoofy, but amusing.

Just remember.

1 shower a day. 2 meals a day. 4 hours of sleep.
(Also, drink water!)

Day 19 (31 Days) - Derek: Master of Horror

Yes, yes, come to me something that might have something interesting again. Four days has been forever. My jonesing to be at con tomorrow, and consideration of how truly insane it really is to just start packing now, has almost waned into submission.

Panels this year, and no real big events. Didn't end up really hearing anything I'm desperate to see or mark down in my app. Hum. Not that I'm all too surprised, since I'm not a big horror fan. But I'm sure one or two of their panels will end up on my things. Disney haunted something, too.

2) Nabbed from petzipellepingo, I not only think this is a great idea, I really think they should make it a credit course because surely getting people thinking and actually maximizing their time in college is worth more than many courses they'll take and forget.

3) I can only imagine the hysteria in the U.S. if this model for sex ed was brought here. Yet I think the approach is a good one for the sort of education really needed -- which is not much different than the one listed above in the Times article.

I made a few earrings over the weekend.

These green ones were re-made for my aunt after she lost half of the original pair I made her. Glass leaves with Swarovski crystal on sterling silver wire with sterling silver ear wires:


And then I did a bunch of variations on the theme:

1) Our visit to Kansas City. Read more... )

2) I saw American Pharaoh's win at the Haskell yesterday, which was well run, though perhaps not the runaway success being discussed since Keen Ice was set to catch him near the wire. If he really was being pulled up near the end that was a bit of a risk to take. What I've been looking to see is if any article mentioned the alarming foaming going on throughout the race. When one commentator quipped that jockey Victor Espinoza was water skiing (meaning he was just hanging back) I actually thought they meant on the foam flying from Pharaoh's mouth. These photos show it but not how alarming it was to see -- even in long shots of him running on the far side of the track one could see flecks of it flying off. He looked rabid.

Supposedly it happens a lot in dressage due to interacting with the bit but he certainly wasn't doing it in previous races.

3) Women's pain consistently disregarded by physicians. "[W]hen men report pain, they are treated more seriously. Doctors, for example, are more likely to prescribe painkillers for men, but sedatives for women. One study showed that men are also more likely to be sent to intensive care units. In an extensive essay on pain last year, Judy Foreman shared research showing that women are far less likely to get hip or knee replacements and that doctors are disinclined to think that women have heart problems, even when they have symptoms."

lea_hazel: Pride flag (Politics: GLBTQ)
[personal profile] lea_hazel
You know, I haven't used this icon in a long while. I used to blog pretty frequently about LGBTQ issues, but these days most of what I post is reblogs on Tumblr. But I made this icon after, I think, the 2007 parade, when the Jerusalem municipality for the first time hanged pride flags along major streets, in preparation for the annual pride parade. I remember my friends inviting me to join the end-tail of the parade in 2003, on a Friday afternoon when I had only just returned from the base. I remember attending, the next year, both the Jerusalem and the Tel Aviv parades, concurrently with my process of coming out of the closet as bisexual. I remember the first time since coming out that I missed the parade, and how guilty I felt. I even remember the parade two years ago, which happened to be the day I receiving the final failing grade in my incomplete BSc.

And I remember the stabbing in 2005. Read more... )

2) Google Street View cars to map pollution as they map roads

3) Now that my days have some extra hours in them, I've been trying to actually use my Tumblr account. Not that I ever spent much time on it, but I figured I'd upload some pretty trip photos to it. So if you spend time there you can also check out some of those posts if you'd like.

2) A West Virginia sex worker shot and killed a serial killer who may have been at work for 20 years. We do not hear these stories often enough.

3) Great article about men's perceptions of women's presence and how that relates to backlash against the all-female cast of the new Ghostbusters.

Rest In Peace, Rowdy Roddy Piper

Rowdy Roddy Piper has passed away at the age of 61, after suffering a heart attack. May he rest in peace. I mostly remember him from watching a severely censored version of They Live on television, since I was never a fan of wrestling. However, after checking IMDB, I see that as I vaguely recalled, he once ended up appearing in the live action host segment of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show. He was in an episode (an episode that I have never rewatched, so I didn’t know that was him) of Highlander: The Series. I need to watch Hell Comes To Frogtown.
