  • Los Gatos Commentary: Want a good workout? Take a trip to the grocery store …

    October 31st, 2014

    Some folks feel the need to join a gym to get their exercise. They walk and jog on the treadmill, then pump a little iron to get in their strength work.

    Others just exercise on their own by running laps around the high school track or by taking a brisk walk through the neighborhood. And still others have a treadmill set up at home, right in front of the TV.

    I have one, too. Its right there in the garage where I can walk up a good sweat and not miss a minute of ESPN since theres a TV there, too.

    But I dont use it anymore. And the gym? Dont need it. And as hot as its been lately, I certainly dont need to run the track.

    Nope, I get all the exercise I need just by doing...

    Gaming Barriers Push Singapore Casinos To Higher Margin Revenue

    October 31st, 2014

    The cash that casinos generate makes it possible to package them spectacularly. In Las Vegas and Macau, replicas of Venice complete with canals and gondoliers surround massive gaming floors. Las Vegas has shows to rival Broadway, clubs that stack up to nightspots anywhere, more celebrity chefs and designer labels than Paris, state of the art convention halls, shopping malls and arenas. Even embattled Atlantic City boasts an idealized version of old Havana. The overriding goal: bring people to the property to gamble.

    Singapore’s government was like the kid who prefers the box to the toy. It wanted the wrapping around the casino to attract tourist and give the city a buzz that would...

    Guests can eat the animals on display at this Swiss zoo

    October 29th, 2014

    Langnau am Albis, just south of Zurich, has been serving game meat from the exhibits at restaurants on park grounds in order to control animal populations. Martin Kilchenmann, a spokesman for the wildlife park, told Der Landbote that the animals on the menu were killed on the park property.

    Kilchenmann explained that the process was “very ecological,” and teaches park visitors about the “natural cycle” of the animals.

    Rescue Animals Get The Help They Need Thanks To Online Donations

    October 29th, 2014

    Its easier to get many people to give small sums of money than to get just a few people to give you large amounts of money, said Sarah Timms, a Colorado attorney who founded LoveAnimals.org.

    The site gave a new chance at life to a kitten named Roger, who was thrown from a moving car in Colorado in early September and required a leg amputation.

    Longmont Humane Society in Colorado, which took in the 1-pound kitten, doubled its goal of $650 in less than 24 hours of online fundraising. Twenty people donated between $5 and $375 through Love Animals to help pay for medical bills and rehab for Roger.

    Timms founded the free site after reading a study from Massolution, a crowdfunding...
