kicking ass at air hockey (at Emporium Logan Square)
How do I make an acai bowl? Are they actually good or are people just exaggerating?
There are moments when I wish I dressed like this every day, and then I remember that I can wear cutoffs, tshirts, and sandals every day and that’s pretty nice too.
whoa whoa whoa this is amazing
When my absence doesn’t alter your life, then my presence has no meaning in it.

Phil Balboni, the CEO of the online international news company GlobalPost, spoke to Fresh Air today about the hostage and brutal execution of journalist James Foley (above). Foley was covering the civil war in Aleppo, Syria at the time of his kidnapping. Balboni tells Terry Gross about the communication he had with Foley’s captors:
“The original demand from the captors was November of 2013. At that moment we’d never had a communication from Jim, and we’d never had an official “proof of life,” as it’s called. During that communication with the kidnappers, they offered us the opportunity to get proof of life, and the Foleys drafted a series of questions that only Jim could answer. They were extremely difficult — obscure family events that only Jim could know. When those proof-of-life questions came back answered correctly, perfectly, it was a hair-raising moment for all of us because we knew definitively, with certainty, that we were dealing with the people who were holding Jim.”
