Hey senorita. I wanted to ask you which Bikram studio you used for our 30 day challenge. I havent fallen in love with any in midtown. Am currently going to one in Queens and like it a lot, but am curious as to others' experiences in manhattan.
I use Bikram Yoga NYC —>http://www.bikramyoganyc.com/default.htm. I mainly use the Upper East side location because they have classes every hour on weekdays. I have tried their midtown location but try to avoid it because it is so close to Times Square. As a member you can you use four locations so I like the options.
“Most Americans, regardless of political party, don’t understand how we can ask a senior citizen to pay more for her Medicare before we ask corporate jet owners and oil companies to give up tax breaks that other companies don’t get. How can we ask a student to pay more for college before we ask hedge fund managers to stop paying taxes at a lower rate than their secretaries? How can we slash funding for education and clean energy before we ask people like me to give up tax breaks we don’t need and didn’t ask for?”—President Obama on the debt-limit compromise (via athivee)
“As I buy another round
With my final twenty pounds
Seems as if my money’s spent
How I’m gonna pay the rent
There’s always somewhere new to go
And I can never say no (Say no)
I’ve been awake for a day now
24 hours yet still I want it louder
Darkness can’t get me to sleep yet
I’m not that weak yet
I just want it louder”—
Four months ago, CBS reporter Lara Logan was separated from her camera crew while covering the revolution in Cairo, Egypt, and brutally raped by a crowd of men.
Two months ago, Logan bravely began speaking out in the media about her assault in the media to help end the stigma surrounding rape.
Two weeks ago, Dan Rottenberg, editor-in-chief of Philadelphia-based online arts magazine Broad Street Review, posted a letter blaming Logan in part for the sexual violence committed against her — equating her gang rape with “getting laid.”
Along with his letter, Rottenberg included a photo of a smiling Logan wearing a low-cut dress at an awards show. His caption reads, “What message was the TV journalist Lara Logan sending here?”
He titled his editor’s note “Male Sexual Abuse and Female Naivete.” Rottenberg says that if women were to act more responsibly, men wouldn’t commit rape.
The content of Rottenberg’s letter has sparked outrage: ”Earth to liberated women: when you display legs, thighs, or cleavage, some liberated men will see it as a sign you feel good about yourself and your sexuality. But most men will see it as a sign you want to get laid.”

The latest sex-abuse case to rock the Catholic Church is unfolding in the archdiocese of an influential Italian Cardinal who has been working with Pope Benedict XVI on reforms to respond to prior scandals of pedophile priests.
Father Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest in the village of Sastri Ponente, near Genoa, was arrested last Friday, May 13, on pedophilia and drug charges. Investigators say that in tapped mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys. “I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues.”
“When I was 16, I had a fake I.D. and decided to go to a gay bar by myself because some friends bailed on me. While there, an older gentleman bought me a drink. He wasn’t a creeper, and he definitely wasn’t unattractive. I accepted the drink and began talking to him. No big deal. As the hour progressed, I felt myself feeling strange. I mentioned that I felt like I had a headache, and this guy helped guide me out of the bar. As we were walking down the street, the thought of, ‘Oh god, he’s drugged me, I’m going to die’ came to my head. I tried to get away, but I was so drugged up that I could barely walk, let alone speak. It also didn’t help that I had really large ‘goth’ platform shoes because I was going through a phase. Anyway, this guy brought me to his suv and began undressing me. As a final act of defiance, I hit him over the head with my platform shoe. He then punched me, and I remember thinking, ‘Why don’t they ever give workshops to gay guys about being victims of rape too?’ While I was as careful as possible, I never saw the guy slip something in the drink. I even watched the bar tender make the drink. Anyway, I lied there completely paralyzed while this pervert was lubing up. I locked eyes with his for a moment, and that’s when it happened. A very large and angry drag queen opened the door of the vehicle and beat the shit out of my attempted rapist. She and her other drag friends helped dress and care for me while the police arrived. I was saved by a group of guardian drag queens. They were basically the modern day ‘angels from heaven.’”—
