A flag now flies atop the sunken Jet Star roller coaster.New Jersey's iconic sunken roller coaster, which has remained in the Atlantic Ocean since the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, just got a bit more patriotic: Local man Christopher Angelo, 38, planted an American flag atop the twisted wreckage after paddling his canoe from the coast of Seaside Heights and climbing atop the the towering remains of the Jet Star coaster, according to a report in the Asbury Park Press.
But the Neil Armstrong-style stunt got him quickly arrested by the New Jersey State Police. It also caused quite a stir, as Seaside Heights cops and the U.S. Coast Guard joined in responding to the scene.
Angelo, whom Police Chief Thomas Boyd described in the news story as being very patriotic, was also characterized as a "daredevil" by his mother, Diane Angelo.

Do you know how much courage it takes for a reality star to pose naked for a cause? Not much. "Real Housewives of Orange County" star Gretchen Rossi is the latest micro-celebrity to use other people's struggles as an excuse to show off her breasts. She also might be the last considering the reception her print ad for a breast cancer charity has received from the survivor community. It's great to support a worthwhile cause, but why do celebrities always get their bare butts in the way? -Piper Weiss, Shine Staff

Having the flu is just awful. And right now, a lot of us seem to have it--wait, no, not just seem to have it. We do have it! This flu season is turning out to be a bad one. Experts are concerned by how early this flu season started, and by the number of otherwise healthy people who are experiencing especially serious cases of the flu.

Washing your hands and using sanitizing gels can reduce your risk of getting the flu by 30 percent, so by all means--clean, clean, clean, and the CDC is urging everyone to get vaccinated.
But if you do happen to wind up with the flu, you might want to head to Facebook and install a little app called "Help, I Have the Flu." It'll spin through your friends' profiles, picking up sick-sounding keywords like "sneezing" and "coughing," and scanning check-ins to see who's been at the doctor's office recently. It'll even see who's been staying up late to post, since flu sufferers may have

Gourmet/Yanes,Romulo A I love when restaurants have online order forms for takeout. It makes the whole process completely easy and convenient, don't you think? Sure! But according to a new study, it may also make it completely easy to order more calories.
Ryan McDevitt, Assistant Professor from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester and one of the study's authors, says that after analyzing the orders placed via the Internet at a pizza chain, research showed something interesting: online customers would over-order.

"We concluded that individuals over-order online because they have fewer inhibitions in more-private settings," he says. "Alone in your home, you don't face the same judgment about your food choices that you would when dining out with others or placing an order with a waiter. The best example of this phenomenon we found in the orders we studied: online customers increased their double and triple bacon orders

In fact, 8 in 10 of us are wearing an ill-fitting sports bra. We may even know it (I have at least two that function solely as my emergency can't-find-the-good-bras-anywhere fill-ins because they are either way too tight or super-loose).
So which kind do you need? The LA Times has some good tips:

* Compression sports bras: best for small cup sizes who prefer low-impact activities (the paper says "like swimming," which confuses me because I don't know anyone who wears a sports bra to swim? But I think we get the point).
Good example: the Nike Swift U-Back
* Compression/encapsulation bras: With semi-molded cups, these are better for women with B or C cups who need more support than a regular compression bra can give; they're good for all levels of exercise.
Good example: the Lole Women Intense

Eggs: People who ate eggs and toast for breakfast shed more pounds than those who had bagels and cream cheese, according to a Louisiana State University study. Besides delivering six grams of protein for just 72 calories, eggs have also been shown to lower levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin.
Almonds: A daily serving of nuts can actually help prevent weight gain, research at Harvard showed. Almonds have fewer calories -- just 129 per one-ounce handful -- than any other kind.
Pears: Pears are one of the best sources of soluble fiber, which reduces belly fat. And a study in the journal Nutrition found that women who ate three a day lost 39 percent more weight than those who consumed an equal number of calories' worth of oatmeal cookies.
