Caffine intake app

Two doctors at Penn State University have developed Caffeine Zone, a free iOS app that tells you the perfect time to take a coffee break to maintain an optimal amount of caffeine in your blood — and, perhaps more importantly, it also tells you when to stop drinking tea and coffee, so that caffeine doesn’t interrupt your sleep.

I seriously think I know like two or three of these songs. Also, something tells me that Spotify was reeeeeally embraced by teenagers.

I’ve been listening to a lot of GWAR, so….. (just kidding, but that would be pretty stellar).  I actually got all into Fiona Apple again last week, which shows what a moody little 90s-lover I am.  But then I got a bit too cry-baby and had to listen to way peppier shit because work was sick of me sniffling at my desk.

..Who the fuck are:

– Jason Derulo

– Wiz Khalifa

– Calivin Harris

– David Guetta

I don’t think I’ve ever heard their names.  My god, I am an old person.


Also, John Mayer, really?  Is he doing stuff now?  Huh.  The moreeee yooouuu knoooooowwww!!!!!!!

Breast Cancer Screenings

“I almost ignored the lump. How serious could it have been? I was 27 and had no family history of any kind of cancer. Then I remembered Planned Parenthood …. Since I had no income at all, and dwindling savings, this was a great option for me. I didn’t have to decide between breast care and rent. … There is no doubt in my mind that Planned Parenthood saved my life.” – Colleen L., Loudonville, NY

However, anyone who knows me personally would tell you that I am an advocate for women’s health. I have dedicated my career to fighting for the rights of the marginalized and underserved. And I believe it would be a mistake for any organization to bow to political pressure and compromise its mission.
