I love Peter Hollens, his music is awesome! He has almost 4 octaves in his vocal range and a college degree in Vocal Performance. He has all of his music on YouTube, there are links to buy it all, and he pays all the necessary licenses for his covers, he's always legal and legit. Ethics are sexy! Did you know he co-founded the U of Oregon's 'On The Rocks' male a cappella group...and went on to compete with them on The Sing-Off season 2?  https://www.youtube.com/user/peterhollens/videos
 
Woohoo! Peter Hollens CD!

A capella artist +Peter Hollens's new CD came in the mail today! For those of you who haven't seen Peter's Youtube videos, I highly recommend giving them some time. One of my favourites is the one he just released, a cover of the Song of the Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit:

He was also involved in the viral Angels We Have Heard on High Christmas music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELjgFKACcdQ

If you like what you see/hear, there are multiple ways of purchasing the CD - they are listed on his website: http://www.peterhollens.com.

No, I am not being paid for this advertisement, but I'm happy to support independent artists who make awesome and unique music. I've been enjoying +Peter Hollens's videos for a long time, and it's exciting to see him successful - and pretty cool to now have a physical CD of his music. :-)

EL FUTURO DE LOS OSOS POLARES EN PELIGRO

La cuenta de Facebook de la fotógrafa especializada en especies árticas, Kerstin Langenberger, subió esta imagen hace varios días junto a un mensaje en el cual advierte sobre el peligro que corren especies similares, más allá de cualquier información esperanzadora de las autoridades del archipiélago de Svalbard. 

"Sí, he visto osos en buen estado, pero también he visto especies muertas o desnutridas. Osos que caminan en las orillas buscando comida, tratando de cazar alces, comiendo huevos de aves, musgo y algas, y me doy cuenta que los osos gordos son casi siempre machos", cuenta la fotógrafa en su fotografía de Facebook.

Langenberger concluye su mensaje de Facebook señalando que, pese a que los expertos dicen que la población es estable, el calentamiento global está ocurriendo y se está sintiendo en gran magnitud en el Ártico.

"Hagamos algo. Quizá no podamos salvar a esta osa, pero cada pequeña acción que hagamos para cambiar será un paso en la dirección correcta", concluye la fotógrafa en una publicación de Facebook que se ha vuelto viral en cuestión de siete días.

      He (…) studied anatomy with his mother, a surgeon who (…) instilled in him what he described as a sense of shame about his sexuality. “You are an abomination,” she told him when she learned of her son’s homosexual leanings. “I wish you had never been born.” Dr. Sacks reflected on the exchange years later:  “My mother did not mean to be cruel, to wish me dead. She was suddenly overwhelmed, I now realize, and she probably regretted her words or perhaps partitioned them off in a closeted part of her mind. But her words haunted me for much of my life and played a major part in inhibiting and injecting with guilt what should have been a free and joyous expression of sexuality.”
The neurologist, played by Robin Williams in the 1990 film, ennobled his patients in books that were read by millions.

Megan Lenhardt is doing a Vlog for every day in August and this time, she's trying a new thing, partner yoga poses with her bestie Evynne Hollens! Evynne's toddler proves to be "helpful" on a couple of the poses but I think they did really well overall, yoga is not easy! :)  At the end, 17-month Ashland demonstrates his own Yoga creation, incorporating a flavor of Sumo into it. ;)

In the Tarime district of the Mara region in northern Tanzania an age-old tradition involves women marrying women.  This alternative family structure, known as Nyumba Nthobu, has become a practical alternative for many.

Dick pix like you've never seen them before, courtesy of the scientists and science communicators of Twitter. #junkoff
Who said scientists don’t have a sense of humor? A playful Twitter war, named #JunkOff, is raging between biologists and biology enthusiasts as they try to one-up each others' images of… animal genitalia, of course. And we’ve selected some of the best for your viewing... pleasure?

Ok, I love a cappella and THIS IS AMAZING, their dedication to reproducing each and every instrument sound in 'Hotel California' with vocal reproduction is remarkable. (I know Peter Hollens does the same thing, all by himself! but 'Hotel California' is Hard Mode stuff)

Side note: at age 49 I only now discover the lyric isn't "She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls men" ?! lol I think mine works better...

Sadly, now closed. Sign on door says a Korean restaurant will open in the same spot. The food is wonderful here, freshly prepared sushi husband says was excellent; my vegetable Tempura was delightful, and the place had very few customers on this Friday evening. I hope it stays afloat in this economy, its an affordable gem. The decor is nothing special, but if good food is your goal, with good service, this is the place.

I like Maplewood Community Center because unlike other health clubs, they have no contracts to sign...you join for however long you like, a year, a month, three months....or buy a 10-visit card to 'try it out' if you dislike committing too far at first. They have lots of classes, especially mornings and evenings; as an unemployed person for years now, I actually wish they had more mid-day class options. They are close to a busline that stops on the half-hour; they have childcare; and they have an onsite Subway Sandwich Shop as well as vending machines. Ample locker rooms have lockers that lock with a quarter, but when you unlock your locker, it gives you back the quarter. It has a very large parking lot that is often more than half full, so its a popular place. Its a wonderful place, clean, friendly, has a pool (not all fitness places have pools) sometimes when my mind considers moving out of our rental...I want to move closer to the Maplewood Community Center. Its multiple levels but it does have an elevator, and a wheelchair ramp. A walking track, weight machine area, all the normal things a fitness center should have. Its only lacks in my opinion is not having a sauna, and the pool is chlorine rather than other, healthier ways to keep a pool clean.

We've used this Pizza Hut at least 12 times over 4 years now, and yes, *sometimes* they get the order wrong, but always, the manager or night manager makes it up to us one way or another for the wait while we get our order re-done. It helps that we always go pick it up rather than have it delivered, so we can catch mistakes there in the store usually. Usually. Once husband got the large pizza home and it must have been newer staff and/or dinner rush cause I opened that box and immediately I could tell that pizza was underdone. Crust was firm but still white, sent husband back with it. He returned with a proper large and another identical large thrown in free, for our trouble and wait. We do have an unusual preference, meatlovers pan with no sauce. I can see how a pizza-maker could get into the habit of starting the sauce on the dough before checking to see if the order has special requests. Once I ordered a personal pan no sauce and the maker put sauce on it then noticed the order was for 'no sauce' and it was their last personal-size dough they had, so I got a medium size pizza for the price of a personal pan pizza. That was cool in the long run. Meanwhile, Pizza Hut has always been my favorite pizza place, and the food is tasty, the price is great (love the $10 sales) and they never mind when I order unusual combos like bacon and Canadian bacon. Now.....if only they had a topping option of shrimp.
