I’m running a six week Fitocracy challenge. Nothing like a little competition to help shed those winter pounds.
First Place: $150 iTunes Gift Certificate
Second Place: $75 iTunes Gift Certificate
Third Place: $25 iTunes Gift Certificate
If you are already a Fitocracy member…
I am taking part in this challenge!! I love that the top 3 places are currently all held by women.
It’s not too late to join the challenge! Sign up for Fitocracy, join the Summer is Coming group, and (important!) make sure you actually add the challenge once you’re in the group.
You can also follow me on Fitocracy if you’d like to see me get super strong (ha). I’m annieisms. Pretty proud of the fact that I can squat 85lbs today when I was scared to do just the barbell a few months ago.
We’re thrilled to announce that David has invested in Sherpaa. I’ve known David for about six years now after meeting through the NYC grapevine. Tumblr has powered my blog since I launched my practice back in 2007. David was one of my earliest followers on tumblr and when we were talking in late 2011 about the early ideas that would eventually culminate in Sherpaa, David suggested getting Sherpaa started by partnering with tumblr. David’s early support, and now, his investment, catalyzed our success. It feels good to know that David, after working with us for two years, believes so much in what we’re doing, he’s invested. And for that, I am grateful. It’s another milestone for us in making healthcare as awesome as we can.
“The first time I charged people, I gave them their money back at the end of the tour,” says Gray. “I felt guilty because I had so much fun doing it.”—On the Museum Hack, a great profile on Nick and his company Museum Hack, one of my favorite entities ever. I love how much of Nick’s personality comes through this piece.
“Please. You don’t want to raise a generation of science students who don’t understand how we know our place in the cosmos.”—Bill Nye (The Science Guy) • Speaking during a debate he took part in tonight at Kentucky’s Creation Museum, where he sparred with creationist Ken Ham on the topic of evolution. Nye called Creationism “absolutely not viable”; his opponent argued that teaching evolution was about “imposing the religion of atheism on generations of students.” Nye, who was paid to show up, drew controversy for his appearance, as it was seen as lending some legitimacy to the museum.

Foursquare no longer allows users to check in privately with the iOS version of its app. The change was made with the recent 7.0 release and iOS 7..
This really bums me out! One of my top reasons to use (and love) Foursquare is for the location diary it builds on your history page as you check-in… publicly AND privately. I really hope they bring this feature back!
