Supremely excellent use of outdoor advertising. Here’s hoping its intended audience doesn’t need to see this message at all, but if they do, it’s effective.
I’m sort of thrown off today. it’s hard to be motivated to bring you science when there’s Reality going on.
When something hits us upside the head like the Boston Marathon explosions, we can feel dizzy, disoriented … left swirling in a dust-storm of rapidly beating hearts, furrowed brows, held breath and shaking heads. That’s how I feel, anyway. I’ve been sitting here, repeatedly muttering statements that begin with “What the f…” and simultaneously cheering and cursing the power of social media to communicate painful news. I keep looking through Twitter and blogs, knowing exactly what I’ll see and don’t want to. So powerful, but so unfiltered.
It’s not the first time in the past year that this message from Fred Rogers has been appropriate, and that’s perhaps the ultimate tragedy. But he’s right. Every photo of violence and blood in the streets of Boston that we won’t unsee is full of people running in to help. And if we have to look, that’s what we should focus on.
My thoughts are with Boston.
You will always find people who are helping.
Kind of chilling, to be honest.

Jimmy, Mariah Carey and The Roots singing “All I want for Christmas Is You” with classroom musical instruments. Enough said.
Jimmy is just the greatest. Being goofy and silly and having fun is the best way to enjoy the season. I’m glad Mariah played along!!

Inexplicably Funny of the Day: Meet Gustavo Almadovar, Channel 9 Eyewitness News reporter from Orange County, California.

Unlocking Your 007 of the Day: Let’s face it: In the same way we all have a zombie plan, our instincts are movie-honed for a secret-agent scenario — as soon as these guys are given a destination and a countdown clock, the inner Bond comes out just as the train station turns into an obstacle course.
One of the coolest marketing stunts ever.
PERFECT. Who wouldn’t want to BE Bond?!?!?
