Egg-freezing gives women more options, so thanks Apple and Facebook. -

"When asked about delayed child-bearing in many studies, the two factors that come up again and again are financial stability and the availability of an appropriate partner. We really like to talk about that first factor, and tie reproductive lateness to hard-charging women who have their own career-centered, family-unfriendly priorities. But for a moment, let’s talk about that second factor: the appropriate partner. This is the one that I think creates the egg-freezing push."

Sleater-Kinney – “Bury Our Friends” - Stereogum -

"The internet went into a frenzy on Friday when word got out that Sleater-Kinney’s new career-spanning box set contained a surprise new song on a 7″ emblazoned with a mysterious date: 1/20/15. A reunion album titled No Cities To Love is rumored for that day. Nothing has been officially announced, but this flyer obtained by Criminal Records seems to confirm it. In the meantime, the new song has made its way to the web. It’s called “Bury Our Friends” and it kicks a whole lot of ass. Listen to it below."

Rats and Their Alarming Bugs - NYTimes.com -

Interesting study in which researcher trapped rats to see what viruses and bacteria they were carrying, and were surprised at what they found:

"Then the scientists searched the rats for new species of viruses. So far, they have identified 18 unknown species related to viruses already shown to cause diseases in humans. Two of the new species, were similar to the virus that causes hepatitis C."
