From The Big Picture:
… One ex-Marine — a combat veteran — took a rubber round in the head. He is in critical condition and may die. That was not a mistake; that was aimed fire and an intentional assassination.
Sorry folks, that’s facts – from 50′ you don’t "miss" and hit someone in the head with these things if you’re shooting for the legs or other non-vital parts. He was shot in the head by someone who aimed for the head. Those projectiles are not "non-lethal," and the bomb thrown by a cop at the people trying to come to his assistance after he fell wasn’t tossed accidentally either.
The policemen firing seemed to be having a little too much fun…
From Zero Hedge:
Yesterday, the short squeeze in the EUR/USD brought the pair to within pips of Citigroup’s revised stop loss of 1.4260… even as it got even more bearish on the European currency, setting a new target of 1.3150.
Today, the bank’s FX strategists continue their onslaught, stating in a note that wonders how long the Euro-love will last and "the post-summit EUR rally is driven by a continuing squeeze in short-risk positions and unwinding of worst fears of financial contagion, rather than improvement in cyclical fundamentals."
Here are their full thoughts on why [it’s] time to short the pair…

From Mental Floss:
Here’s a little conversation fodder you can pass out on Monday along with the fun-size candy bars:
1. Remember the Seinfeld episode where a Junior Mint falls into the open chest cavity of a patient? M&M’s and Life Savers turned down the show before the Junior Mints people signed on. No money changed hands.
2. The 3 Musketeers originally included three smaller bars: one vanilla, one chocolate, and one strawberry. (Hence the name.) When the ingredients became too costly during World War II, the 3 Musketeers became a single chocolate bar.
3. Toblerone is a portmanteau of the creator’s name, Theodor Tobler, and "torrone," an Italian word for a type of nougat.
4. The M&M in M&M’s stand for…

From Dr. David Eifrig in Retirement Millionaire:
In June, I told you that a vegetarian diet is linked to a lower cataract risk. New research shows vitamin C may also lower your chance of developing cataracts. A study done in India showed people deficient in vitamin C were more likely to have cataracts. And those with adequate levels were 39% less likely to develop cataracts.
Cataracts are thought to be caused from oxidative damage. Since vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, perhaps the higher levels prevent cataracts. In addition, the eye has one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C inside the body.
But don’t go overboard… no evidence suggests taking excessive amounts of vitamin C further lowers your risk of cataracts. Vitamin C is water-soluble, so excess is excreted from the body through your urine.
Our bodies can store about 2,500 milligrams, while it’s depleted at a fairly constant rate of 5% of the store a day. That means we use up about 125 milligrams of vitamin C per day. But added stress increases the use of vitamin C. After a few days of added stress, poor diet, or heavy exercise, the body easily loses 50% of the total pool, or about 1,250 milligrams.
Do what I do to get the full benefits of vitamin C… Take about 1,000-2,000 mg of vitamin C a day. This keeps my body stores high and gives me the added benefit of preventing colds – something especially important this time of year.
