70 must be the new 50

70 must be the new 50

I remember being nine-years-old and buying my first Rolling Stones record at the old E. J. Korvettes, and thinking — no, KNOWING — that they were one band that would never get old and wrinkled.  And I was almost right.  Whether it’s the, ahem, clean living and healthy lifestyle that does it, or just the Miss Clairol, Sir Mick Jagger has managed to keep his vitality and relative youthfulness.  The man born with a bit to spare in the lips department hit the seven-decade mark on July 26th, and I guess at least one-half of The Glimmer Twins is doing something right by going to the gym.  Sir Mick will always be known as being rock’s preeminent front man and a great co-songwriter with partner Keith Richards.  And yes, 45 years later I still buy Stones music and can’t wait until the new album comes out.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

Fresh
An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
