Walmart's "Great Value Donut Cheeseburger" dropped earlier this month, replete with American cheese, ground beef, and hot pepper berry bacon jam (and about 610 calories per serving).

Miguel Robles, a 19-year-old political communications student, wielded a poster that said: “You’re packin’ heat, I’m packin’ meat.” He said that he feels “less safe now that campus carry exists. During class you’re not sure if you can argue or have discussions any more because if someone gets very offended at any moment, [violence] could just spill out … It’s just very unnerving, really,” he added. “I haven’t met anyone that thinks it’s a good idea.”

In October of 1824, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison attended a board meeting of the University of Virginia, which would open the following spring. Jefferson and Madison had spent not a little time thinking about individual liberties. But minutes from the meeting show that their new school would not extend the right to bear arms to its red-brick grounds.

“No student shall, within the precincts of the University, introduce, keep or use any spirituous or vinous liquors, keep or use weapons or arms of any kind…” the board declared.

Cuteness sells. Other companies have incorporated cute characteristics by giving products rounder, softer edges and large “eyes.” In a 2011 study, researchers found that consumers saw the fronts of cars as similar to human faces, with the headlights representing the eyes. Cars with big, round headlights elicited more positive responses.

The Volkswagen New Beetle, introduced in 1997, was particularly cute, with its round shapes, huge headlights and dashboard flower vase. GQ called it "concentrated cutesiness — the drivable equivalent of a YouTube video where a puppy hugs a kitten while a baby panda looks on knowingly."
A powerful force makes us click on cute animal photos.

My test of the cuteness factor is to see how people react to pictures of baby naked mole rats.

Super crisped from a special gluten-free dredge and a double frying, the chicken is tossed in a soy ginger sauce and dredged again to finish with a signature spice rub that mixes sweet, sharp, salty, and hot.

The Kirby Café in Tokyo is serving extremely weird and adorable dishes http://tnw.me/UfvfsaL
Nintendo has been expanding their portfolio outside of games published on their own consoles. The Kirby Cafe is taking things to another level.

Mylan declined to comment on the price increases coinciding with legislation to encourage EpiPen use. Mylan spent about $4 million in 2012 and 2013 on lobbying for access to EpiPens generally and for legislation, including the 2013 School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act. Mylan also was the top corporate sponsor of a group called Food Allergy Research & Education that was the key lobbyist pushing for the bill encouraging schools to stock epinephrine auto-injectors, of which EpiPen is by far the leading product. Mylan declined to comment on the price increases coinciding with legislation to encourage EpiPen use.
Members of Congress are in an unusual position as they demand an explanation for Mylan NV’s 400 percent price hike for the EpiPen and focus attention squarely on its CEO: Heather Bresch.

I think they have misunderstood a garment that is so positive – it symbolises leisure and happiness and fun and fitness and health and now they are demanding women get off the beach and back into their kitchens? This has given women freedom, and they want to take that freedom away? So who is better, the Taliban or French politicians?

A one-month supply of a popular version that cost $45 wholesale in 2001 cost $1,447 14 years later, an increase of almost 3,000%. That’s the wholesale price, not the retail price that an uninsured patient would pay.

“These patients are desperate. They do without their insulin, skip doses, lower their prescribed dose to stretch out the insulin they have, and end up in the emergency room or ICU with long-term complications such as kidney failure, leg amputations or vision problems.”
Earlier this week, we shared the concerns of patients who are struggling with the rising cost of EpiPens, injection devices that can save lives in the case of a severe allergic reaction to foods or…

The EpiPen news just keeps getting better. THIS IS NOT A COMPANY TRYING TO RECOUP EXPENSES IN DEVELOPING THIS DRUG!

Dammit, this kind of writeup on taxpayer funded medicines should be prohibited.

Yeah, I kinda had to laugh at my docs acting like because I'd never carried an epipen before that I wouldn't know how to use it. All the lulz for that. Because I did a lot of NBC training with atropine dummy injectors.
