Just things I like and stuff. Again.
CesareanRates.com: Transparency in Maternity Care at The Well-Rounded Mama — On a website that breaks down baseline caesarian rates by state and by hospital, why that information might be useful for people looking at their childbirth options, and what that says about c-section rates in the US in general.

But research is increasingly showing that it is there. It is worth noting that Myers never makes any comments about her own magazine’s use of Photoshop, which tells me that she’s fully aware of what she’s doing and is just willfully playing dumb.”
The Bare Facts on Running Barefoot by Christa Studzinski at Fitness Republic — A reasonably balanced (if basic) article on the mechanics of minimalist running, as well as some transition tips for folks interested in getting started with it.
