Cat Stevens announces 5-city US concert tour - MSN Music News
"New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Cat Stevens is taking the "Peace Train" back on the road. He announced Monday that he will make a six-city concert tour in North America this December, his first series of shows in the U.S. since 1976. His conversion to Islam followed, putting his music career on hold for a quarter century. Stevens, who also is releasing a blues album on Oct. 27 produced by Rick Rubin and titled "Tell 'Em I'm Gone," is using that stage name along with Yusuf, the name he took when he converted. The performer of 1970s-era hits "Wild World," ''Morning Has Broken" and "Peace Train" has slowly broken back into secular music during the past decade and has made only a handful of semi-public and television appearances in the U.S." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

What's the most reliable automobile you've ever owned?
Saturn SL1 - Meg VMeg
A BMW me ex had was very reliable. Never had an issue at all. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Hyundai Elantra (2003) - Jennifer Dittrich
All three of my recent cars have been very reliable: Ford Focus, Scion TC, and now a Toyota Yaris. Nary a problem with any of them. - Friar Will
Dodge colt that was essentially a Mitsubishi. - Joe from iPod
This 20 year old Voyager I'm driving now. But my favoritest car was my always-needing-maintenance 93 Cutlass SL. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Our Honda Civics. All of them, except for the transmission problem on the '95. (Now down to just one, our new 2005.) - Walt Crawford
Joe reminded me of the Colt that I had as well. Yes, it too was very reliable. - Friar Will
Hondas, 12 of them in the immediate family over the years. - Anne Bouey

!984 Oldsmobile Cutlas Ciara, that we named Betsy. But the most reliable I ever paid for was a friend's used Toyota cargo van that had over a million miles on it before he retired from the courier biz and sold it to another courier driver. - April Russo
I'm still driving my 1992 Honda Civic. - Marie from iPhone
Toss up between my '97 Civic EX and my '80 Ford Fairmont Sedan. That thing was a friggin' BEAST. My current Civic is too new to really sing the praises of but it's not let me down yet, so. - Hookuh Tinypants
Any of my Chevy Pickups - WarLord
My old Hyundai Excel was pretty reliable. In 18 years I had to replace the clutch twice and that was the worst of it. My Subaru Baja has been pretty reliable over the 10 years I've had it. - vicster: full-bodied

Bill Cosby to loan art collection to Smithsonian - MSN TV News
"WASHINGTON (AP) -- After amassing a private collection of African-American Art over four decades, Bill Cosby and his wife Camille plan to showcase their holdings for the first time in an exhibition planned at the Smithsonian Institution. The Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art announced Monday that the entire Cosby collection will go on view in November in a unique exhibit juxtaposing African-American art with African art. The collection, which will be loaned to the museum, includes works by such leading African-American artists as Beauford Delaney, Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, Augusta Savage and Henry Ossawa Tanner. The Cosby collection of more than 300 African-American paintings, prints, sculptures and drawings has never been loaned or seen publicly, except for one work of art. "It's so important to show art by African-American artists in this exhibition," Cosby said in a written statement.

Autism's Gut-Brain Connection | Fast forward | OZY -
"But scientists have found promising clues in the gut. Research has revealed striking differences in the trillions of bacteria — collectively known as the microbiome — in the intestines of children with and without autism. But the gut bacteria in individuals with autism aren’t just different. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have shown for the first time that they may actually contribute to the disorder. They reported in the journal Cell in December 2013 that an experimental probiotic therapy alleviated autism-like behaviors in mice and are already planning a clinical trial. Today autism is treated primarily through behavioral therapy. But the new study suggests that treatment may one day come in the form of a probiotic — live, “friendly” bacteria like those found in yogurt. “If you block the gastrointestinal problem, you can treat the behavioral symptoms,” said Paul Patterson, a professor of biology at Caltech who co-authored the study. University of Colorado Boulder professor Rob Knight hailed the finding as “groundbreaking” in a commentary in Cell." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"Among the most common health complaints from children with autism? Gastrointestinal problems. Although estimates vary widely, some studies have concluded that up to 90 percent of children with autism suffer from tummy troubles. According to the CDC, they’re more than 3.5 times more likely to experience chronic diarrhea and constipation than their normally developing peers. Following... more... - Steve C Team Marina

Any advice for someone who socializes with people from work(a monthly book club) but realizes that they really don't want to socialize with the group because they don't like some of them, but still have to see them at work? I need to quit this book club, but I'm afraid the work environment would be even more hostile than it already is.
Establish clear boundaries. - Julian
(Also: sorry to hear that it is hostile.) - Julian
can you make an excuse about the book club taking time away from other things you want to do (make it not about them?) - ~Courtney F
Yeah, I've been thinking that i can just use "personal reasons" and leave it at that. Even with that, though, I think it will negatively affect my work life. - Alan
Personally when I don't want to socialize with someone, but honesty is too brutal/risky I just invent an important conflict. If it's something that is slightly awkward, no one will ask questions. ("that's the night of my weekly AA meeting" or "I have a colonoscopy that day so I'll need to rest" or "I joined a Klingon language practice group, wanna come?"). YMMV, honesty is probably... more... - Lo from Android
that seems like a separate-but-related issue....if the book club isn't required by work, it shouldn't make it more of a hostile environment. (what should be and reality are not always related, i realize) is there someone you can talk to about the hostile work environment? Boss, HR? - ~Courtney F
I don't feel like there is anyone I can talk to about the work issues. I think reporting it would make things worse. I'm hoping that I am wrong and removing myself from the social situation will make work easier. If not, I might just ask for a transfer to a different branch. - Alan
Never ever feel the need to offer a reason or excuse to manage your time. Scheduling conflict is all you need to express. - Janet from FFHound!
Thanks for the input. I guess I need to stop worrying about how other people will feel and worry about what is best for me. - Alan
That is excellent advice to yourself. Difficult, but good. :) - ~Courtney F

A butterfly just landed on my wrist while I was reading outside and stayed there kissing on me for almost two minutes before it flew away. So ticklish! And why did it take so long to figure out I'm not a flower? Cute though.
Don't some of them like salt? That might have been it :D - Jennifer Dittrich
Yeah, butterflies sometimes ingest salt from sweat or other sources. - John (bird whisperer)
It could also have been a vampire butterfly. I'm just sayin'. - Steve C Team Marina
Interesting. I'm sure there's plenty of salt on me. It was cool bc it landed right on my wrist and didn't move when I raised my arm to look at it close up. "Are you lost?'' I said. "Nomnomnomnom'' he said. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

Today is pretty ridiculous we passed 100 a little bit ago here in LB. - Steve C Team Marina
Because my landlord didn't paint the house, the housing authority will stop paying its portion of my rent & they're issuing me a voucher to find another place. We have 90 days. I still have to pay my portion of the rent. I can't afford to move or to hire help, my credit is awful, and hardly anyone will rent to someone on section 8 who has dogs.
Damn - Rodfather from Android
(((Starmama))) - Spidra Webster
I am so sorry you are in this situation due to the lack of care from your landlord. - Janet
It didn't even occur to me that he'd do just nothing. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
That sucks. :-( - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
I'm so sorry, Mandy. That sucks so hard. I'm pissed at your landlord. - Tamara J. B.
I'm sorry to hear this, Mandy. - Corinne L
Oh, wow. I can't believe he didn't even bother to do anything. I am so sorry :( - Jennifer Dittrich
What a jerk. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Oh wow, what at an ass to put you in that situation. - Anika
Rogue landlords must have global conferences and discuss how to screw tenants, they do a pretty good job over here messing with us too, so sorry, hope you find a resolution to the problem and hopefully you will not have to move. - Halil
Oh Jesus. I'm so sorry you're having to go through yet another trial, Starmama. :( - Jenny H. from Android
How can we help? xxxx - Melly - #TeamMarina
Oh no! I don't understand why they're not penalizing HIM for his non-compliance?!?! :((( - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I can't believe he refused to paint the house. :-( - vicster: full-bodied
They are penalizing him. They pay around 40% of my rent, and they aren't paying it anymore because of the paint. But they can't have me living in a unit that isn't meeting HUD standards. So I can take my voucher anywhere that accepts section 8, as long as there's at least 2bdr and rent no more than $1365. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I've gotten some offers of help, one from my girl who is a housing specialist at a non profit; she works with a different demographic than us but she's got an ear to those rails. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
& the recent purge & deep clean will make packing easier, if need be. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
what would happen if he finally got it together and painted within the 90 day period? - Laura Norvig
Then I can stay. But I cant sit around hoping he's gonna do it, either. He's avoiding me so I have no idea what his plans are. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
So sorry you are having to go through this :( - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
That's terrible. :-( - John (bird whisperer)

So the maintenance guy was in the parking lot and I mentioned I thought the AC system is still leaking. He came to have a look and it's taking a long time bc the housing won't come all the way off and we can't figure out why. I can tell he's getting frustrated and I have to be somewhere in 30 min. I told him he can use foul language if he needs...
That made him laugh at least. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
The other problem is I really need to poop and I can't do that with him here. Sigh. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

U.S. skygazers could get rare glimpse of northern lights
"SEATTLE (Reuters) - Stargazers across a wide swath of the United States could get a rare view on Friday of the northern lights, a colorful cosmic display normally only visible in far northern latitudes. The northern lights, or Aurora Borealis, was expected to be visible after dark on the East Coast from Maine to as far south as Maryland, and across large parts of Michigan and Iowa. Forecasters said northwestern states including Idaho and Washington were expected to get the best view of the phenomenon, in which the sky is illuminated with streaks and swirls of green, red, blue and yellow." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

San Diego cabbies cry foul over body odor test -
San Diego cabbies cry foul over body odor test
"Body odor is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. For years, inspectors with the San Diego Regional Airport Authority run down their checklist for each cabbie — proof of insurance, functioning windshield wipers, adequate tire treads, good brakes. Drivers are graded pass, fail or needs fixing. Anyone who flunks the smell test is told to change before picking up another customer. Leaders of the United Taxi Workers of San Diego union say the litmus perpetuates a stereotype that predominantly foreign-born taxi drivers smell bad. A 2013 survey of 331 drivers by San Diego State University and Center on Policy Initiatives found 94 percent were immigrants and 65 percent were from East Africa. Drivers wonder how inspectors determine who reeks. Driver Abel Seifu, 36, from Ethiopia, suspects they sniff inconspicuously during friendly conversations in the staging area. Airport authority spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield said there is "no standard process" to testing." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
