I have to imagine it does.  Even if not, I can't see how rubbing produce under running water could hurt!  :)

For my (organic) apples, I have a little scrubbie cloth that I use (with water) in an effort to remove the stupid shellac/wax from the skin.  I'd like to imagine that helps, too...

If you text and drive (and that includes waiting at a stoplight), expect to get busted one of these days...

Some drivers call it sneaky, but one metro police department says going undercover is an effective way to bust drivers texting, tweeting or checking emails behind the wheel.

Sadly, I'm sure that even the organic apples I eat are covered with shellac...  :P

Fascinating tale of this shadowy industry.  I wonder if it's about the same in all cities across the country.
Manicurists are routinely underpaid and exploited, and endure ethnic bias and other abuse, The New York Times has found.

I don't normally read Glamour (haha), but this article showed up on my Flipboard and seemed like a decent write about confidence; I think it was.

"People get scared when you try to do something, especially when it looks like you're succeeding. People do not get scared when you're failing. It calms them. That's why the show Intervention is a hit and everyone loves "worrying about" Amanda Bynes. But when you're winning, it makes them feel like they're losing or, worse yet, that maybe they should've tried to do something too, but now it's too late. And since they didn't, they want to stop you. You can't let them."
Mindy Kaling's secret? You have to earn that bulletproof feeling. In an excerpt from her new book, Why Not Me?, she explains.

Some good ideas here...
Sure, Bill Murray has done his fair share of hilariously random and weird things. But in addition to having a killer sense of humor, the actor is pretty deep—as these quotes show.

Is.  Except his comment about Seinfeld.   Watching the last episode would not be smart considering everything in it was a culmination of all the other episodes.

Saw this with +Marla Dufek and it was really good.  We suspected there was some actual science behind the characters/action and this article seems to confirm that.  Worth a watch, IMO.

Thanks for the link.  Hadnt see and might be a while before I do.  I liked the site though and added its RSS feed (had to search to find them) to my reader for more interesting items by them.

I suspected that something was amiss with those traveling crews; now I know.
Traveling crews have been exploiting young workers and scamming customers for decades—and neither law enforcement nor Congress has been able to do anything about it.

Interesting.  Wish they had a condensed version of this as it is quite long.

A few years ago, my wife and I adopted a no-added-oil, vegan diet. (Yes, it's a mouthful. haha) While we were pleased to discover that Indian restaurants can usually accommodate our vegan needs, we were displeased to learn that many of them serve food that's, well, swimming in oil. Back then, we'd only tried a few Indian restaurants, so we kept looking, hoping that we'd find one that had less oily offerings. Enter Bukharaa. We got saag chana (it's not on the menu, but it's basically the ubiquitous spinach and cheese dish (saag paneer) minus the cheese, add chickpeas) and baingan bartha (a tomato eggplant dish) and LOVED IT. We get those dishes every time and they're nowhere near the dripping-with-oil stuff we've found at other Indian places. (Bear in mind that I'm only reporting on their vegan offerings; we've never had any of their meat dishes, but friends who have say that they enjoyed them.) We kept trying to find other places nearer to home (we drive about a half-hour each way to go to Bukharaa), to no avail. At this point, I'd say that we've probably tried 40 or 50 Indian places in GA, FL, NC, SC, WA, and MA and found only a couple (Bukharaa included, of course) to be non-oily enough for our tastes. The service is always impeccable -- I don't think our water glasses have ever gotten empty (and if our "mild+" order ventures into "medium" territory, that can be critical. :) In my initial review (I'm updating this a year or so later), the only thing that I didn't like then was the loud TV. Well, someone must've read my review because the last half-dozen or so times we've been there, the volume has been way down. Yes! :) We've since come to enjoy the occasional side of patra (steamed taro root leaf + spicy chickpea paste) and almost always get cuchumber, a delicious onion, tomato, cucumber, cilantro, lime, salt, pepper salad. When it's tomato season, the cuchumber is amazing. I could go on, but I don't want you reading when you should be driving to Bukharaa. :)

They don't always have what I'm looking for, but the pharmacists here are very helpful and friendly. Front-store staff is polite and nice, too. (Can't say that about other CVS locations; sometimes it seems like I'm interfering with their gab session!)

Only complaint is that sometimes it's too cold, but I've learned to bring a jacket. Food is good, service is always fast and attentive. Iced tea is kind of a rip off at $2.29, but I've learned to live without it.

I used to come home via the other side of Buford and would regularly pick up a Hot N Ready or two at the other location. One day, the cashier clued me in that I could get *any* one ingredient, so long as I was willing to wait for it (assuming that I wanted an ingredient other than pepperoni). When this location opened up almost in our backyard, I was thrilled and made a pizza run. I asked for one with mushrooms and one with onion. It rang up higher than I expected, so I checked the receipt and found that I was charged not the usual $5 for a HnR, but $6. I asked to speak with the manager and the assistant manager was very nice and said that he'd adjust it this once, but that $1 extra for anything other than pepperoni was their policy. I informed him of their competitor not doing so and he said that he'd relay my concern to the owner. I've not been back since. (I explained what happened to the owner of the other location and he was pleased to have my business.)
