You may have noticed I get a lot of my news articles from BBC News. This is mostly thanks to Boyfriend, who, at the time we first started seeing each other, would often reference news articles and goings-on. I got into the habit of at least skimming article titles, if not reading an article or two from each category/world location. I tend to focus on the In Pictures, Health, and Entertainment sections as well as the top trending stories, now. Just too much to read!
What are your favorite news sources? I find most US-based sites are too much rumor-mill material.
- Less time sitting adds years to your life – In general, I think folks living and working in a Western society need to move more. I am not excluded from that! But how can we impart this practice into our daily paper-pushing lives? I, for one, work and sit at a computer for 8 hours 5 days out of the week. Standing desks would probably be a step in the right direction.
- Cranberry juice to treat UTI’s – This is…news? But seriously, tired of hearing about treating symptoms instead of causes.
- Dogs’ evolution shows why they ‘love’ gnawing on bones – One of the stupidest articles I’ve ever read. It has absolutely no information in it. Really? Because they like to chew in general? Nothing to do with how bones have minerals that dogs need for optimal health? Now that habit makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint – dogs that did not chew bones would probably not be healthy.
- Michael Fassbender to star in ‘Assassin's Creed’ film – Sweet. I like me some Fassy, and the game was fun (I watched a few people play it). I think it will make a fun action flick, as long as they use plenty of real-life free-running footage, and not just CGI climbing shots.
