Kurt Cobain

In the song “something in the way,” from Nirvana’s 1991 masterpiece “Nevermind,” Kurt Cobain sings about being homeless living under a bridge. He says “ It’s ok to eat fish ’cause they don’t have any feelings.”

He’s right! According to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, eating fish once a week can boost mental alertness. The study says it does not matter how high the omega-3 content is, which goes against previous thought.

“Our study shows that people who ate a diet that included baked or broiled, but not fried, fish have larger brain volumes in regions associated with memory and cognition,” James T. Becker, Ph.D., and a contributor to the new research study said. “We did not find a relationship between omega-3 levels and these brain changes, which surprised us a little. It led us to conclude that we were tapping into a more general set of lifestyle factors that were affecting brain health of which diet is just one part.”

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia may be no fan of rock music (when it’s disturbing his peace in public, at least), but D.C. Circuit Judge Janice Rogers Brown seems to have an appreciation for classic tunes – and for the enduring wisdom of The Rolling Stones. Brown cited Mick Jagger & Co. in the opening of her opinion in a campaign finance case involving Stop This Insanity Inc., a Tea Party-affiliated nonprofit group. “The iconic musician Mick Jagger famously mused, “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find, you get what you need,” Brown wrote, with a citation to the unconventional source material: “The Rolling Stones, You Can’t Always Get What You Want, on Let It Bleed (Decca Records 1969).”

Isn’t it about time this Internet fad goes away? No one is safe.

According to published reports, a Russian crime ring has amassed the largest known collection of stolen Internet privacy things, including 1.2 billion user name and password combinations and more than 500 million email addresses.

Time to change all your passwords again, and then tomorrow when someone else figures out who to hack into a server, change them again. Really makes you wonder, why bother with user name and passwords anyway. Perhaps if there were no user names and passwords, people would have nothing to steal. Just a thought.
