A Colorado charter school has gone vegetarian. Parents, don’t trip over yourselves trying to submit your child’s application.

Last year, I linked to a Big Blue Test workout done by MDA reader Ryan to commemorate World Diabetes Day and show the power of exercise over blood sugar control. He’s back at it again. Go check it out.

Paleolithic cave paintings, with some informed speculation about the artists who painted them. I particularly like the first one of all the hand prints. Haunting.

Eurozone bans airport X-ray scanners (the same ones used in US airports) amid cancer concerns. So much for “totally harmless and safe,” eh?

Gobble. Gobble. Use promo code “turkeyday” at Primal Pacs this weekend and get free shipping.

For those of you having trouble making my “eating more vegetables” tips work, just eat some pizza and call it a day.
