Weakness Wednesday: The Fresh & Onlys “Waterfall”

Even though this song came out in 2010, our appreciation for it and the San Francisco-based Fresh & Onlys grew in 2011, and this could be our favorite song of the entire year. These are the reasons why SF is the best place on Earth… our music scene has ramped up again…

The Worst Place in the World to be a Woman

India worst place women s 007 The Worst Place in the World to be a Woman worst place on earth somalia pakistan India congo afghanistan

Its Afghanistan. So says this survey by Thomson Reuters Foundation to mark the launch of a website, TrustLaw Woman. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Pakistan, India and Somalia round out the Top 5. How crappy is that? As the Guardian notes, “High maternal mortality rates, limited access to doctors and a ‘near total lack of economic rights’ render Afghanistan such a threat to its female inhabitants.”

The survey looked at things like violence against female public officials, dismal healthcare and desperate poverty.

Vacation 2011

Posted from The Citrus Report

Look, it is six days into the new year, and we have all reset our vacation days at work. Time to get the fuck out and see the world. Really, bees are dying, birds are falling from the sky, the world is ending and working up your 401K seems quite pointless at the moment. Let’s go on vacation.

The problem is in the 21st Century is that most urban centers look the same. A Gucci there, a Starbucks there, and a Burger King somewhere, too. Hell, you go to Vienna now to have a gingerbread latte. So, we are thinking places that you can go to that may spark up a conversation with someone on your flight home. Dubai, we know, is a little close to the Gucci-world, but you can’t pass up skiing indoors.

Reasons for our particular places of travel. First, North Pole, trees, a hotel. Second, Dubai, skiing, desert. Third, underwater, motels, psycho. Fourth, Lafayette, Duck Club, East Bay. And fifth, Sorrento, Italy, Amalfi.

Please, everyone, travel safely. —The Citrus Report Staff

1) Treehotel in Sweden—Because the North Pole is nice year round.

2) Ski Dubai- The first indoor ski resort in the Middle East. Because Dubai is generally a snowy place.

3) Jules Underwater Lodge– Undersea motel in Key Largo, Florida. If this is a motel, we would hate to see what the hotel looked like.

4) Lafayette Park Hotel– It’s the “Crown Jewel of the San Francisco East Bay.” And the Duck Club has some good eating.

5) Grand Hotel Ambasciatori in Sorrento, Italy. This is by far the greatest place on earth. Amalfi Coast. Heaven.
