Guide Dog Helps Trainers Escape From Oncoming Car (VIDEO) (Huffington post)

A guide dog-in-training earned his stripes Monday morning when he alerted his
handler and a fellow trainer to an out-of-control car seconds before it
barreled into them.

Todd Jurek, a training supervisor for Guide Dogs For The Blind, was
accompanying O'Neill, an 18-month-old labrador, and apprentice instructor
Danielle Alvarado, who was blindfolded, on a field test in San Rafael, Calif.,
when a black car nearly backed into them, the Marin Independent Journal

Security cameras show O'Neill spotting the vehicle, and the group immediately
running for safety.

Street-legal bumper car makes the road your carnival (Albuquerque Journal)

Get ready for the ride of your life.

(Credit: bumpercarguy)

I've seen street-legal bumper cars made out of vehicles from vintage amusement
park rides, but this is the first time I've seen a real full-size car
transformed into a giant bumper car. The well-named seller, bumpercarguy, is
parting with his sweet wheels on eBay. There are only a handful of hours left
for you to get your bid in.

The base of the unusual vehicle is a 1984 Dodge Colt 1.6-liter turbo. Yep, a
turbo bumper car. What could possibly go wrong? The exterior has been
customized from fiberglass to make it look like the outside of a big red
bumper car. It even has the pole sticking out the back that would make the
electrical connection in a real bumper car.

The unique vehicle features a cold air conditioner, two new front tires, and a
$1,500 stereo for listening to calliope music. So far, bidding has reached
$2,020, but the reserve hasn't been met.

A peek into a pro-life paradise (feministe-blog)

I'm sure many Feministe readers have been closely following the story of
Beatriz, a young Salvadoran mother with lupus who was pregnant with an
anencephalic fetus. The pregnancy, which was doomed because the fetus had only
a brainstem but no brain, was killing her. Her kidneys were shutting down, and
the longer they were under stress, the higher the likelihood that if she
didn't die, she would need to be on dialysis for the rest of her life -- a
major hardship and almost definitely a life-shortener for a woman living in
rural El Salvador with very limited access to health care. Doctors said
Beatriz needed an abortion, but El Salvador has some of the strictest pro-life
laws in the world, and their courts refused her the procedure under the logic
that her life wasn't imminently threatened (apparently since she would die in
a few days or weeks, not minutes) and that it's never ok to prioritize a
woman's life over a fetus's life. Doctors in El Salvador got around the law by
waiting until the 26th week of pregnancy and then performing a Cesarean
section -- a procedure everyone knew would result in ...
