I am failing to recall the name of an app on Windows Phone where it will stitch together the photos and geo-locations from a trip. Anyone know the name of one?

This is how last night's #ChampionsLeague penalty shoot-out looked at the G8 summit. Cameron obviously rooting for #Chelsea , Merkel for FC Bayern Munich. Wonder who Barack Obama is rooting for there?

Lack of sunlight causes near-sightedness.

An incredible 90 percent of primary-school kids in Singapore suffer from myopia, or near-signtedness.

In Australia, the reverse is true: Only 10 percent of kids the same age are near-sighted.

The reason, according to a new study conducted by the Australian National University is that Singaporean kids get only about 30 minutes of sunlight per day, whereas Australian kids get about three hours per day.

Kids in African spend even more time in the sun, and only about 3 percent suffer from myopia.

The reason is that direct sunlight stimulates the production of dopamine, which prevents the eyeball from growing elongated and distorting the eyes' focus.

Long story short: Kids need a lot of sunshine every day.

3 tracks in and I can already tell you that you need to hear the new Dandy Warhols album! The song "Enjoy Yourself" has a definite Rocky horror feel to it.

Just got back from Burlington, VT. Beautiful place, but seeing snowflakes in late-April was a bit alarming at first.
