Awesome.
Former Trader Joe executive Doug Rauch has opened a Boston market that brings healthy food to people who usually can't afford it.

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
What do those mystery chemicals actually do? Take a tour of the most common additives to find out how food scientists modify what you eat.

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.

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.

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.
