‘Monks on Horses’ by fabianfred

Via: TrekEarth

Photographer’s Notes:

‘At the Temple of the Golden Horse near Mae Chan in Norhtern Thailand, the abbot and his monks and novices ride on hardy mountain horses to travel around the jungle tracks in the mountainous region. Thye also ride them to neigbouring hill-tribe villages for morning alms-round. Subject of the documentary “Buddha’s Lost Children” they have become well known and attract many visitors, both Thai and foreign.’

Mitt Romney’s Orange Glow Looks a Lot Like Spray Tan

Via: Atlantic Wire

It’s an activity best associated with dingy strip malls and reality TV stars, but it also happens to be the secret to Mitt Romney’s sun-kissed glow, according to BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins and Ruby Cramer.

A source tells the pair that Romney has been spray tanning in private ahead of debates, speeches and interviews to project, as they put it, “an image of 65-year-old vigor.” Coppins and Cramer continue:

He pays for the process out of pocket — sparing his campaign the expense, and the task of masking it on public campaign finance reports — and steers clear of public salons where he could be recognized. Instead, he gets misted down in the comfort of his own home or hotel suite.

But don’t tell the Romney campaign, spokeswoman Andrea Saul flatly denies it.  “Not true,” she said.

. . .

Still, BuzzFeed is sticking with their sources. Their best guess is that Romney is taking advantage of mobile tanning professionals whose services can range from $200 to $500 (oh yeah, definately Romney).

As an example, they talk to Jennifer Lee, owner of Born to Glow in Beverly Hills. “I pop up the tent, determine how dark the client wants to go, and then I mix the formula and match it with their skin tone,” she says.

All we can say is that when it comes to projecting a presidential image, spray tanning is most definitely not something you associate with the leader of the free world. Then again, this is America. Whatever the truth may be, the BuzzFeed report does help explain Romney’s unusually tan glow during his Univision interview last month.

Carlton Fisk was arrested for DUI on Monday evening in Illinois, according to reports.

Police sources informed TMZ and various other outlets that Fisk’s vehicle was discovered in a cornfield. (see photo)

“Around 7:20 (Monday) night, we received a couple of calls about a vehicle in a field,” New Lenox Deputy Chief Bob Pawlisz told ESPN Chicago. “When officers went over there, they found Mr. Fisk unconscious behind the wheel.”

After reportedly being woken by police, Fisk agreed to be taken to a nearby hospital, per WLS-TV Chicago.

New Lenox police told WLS-TV that an open vodka bottle was found inside of Fisk’s F-150 truck. The Chicago Tribune reports that Fisk was treated at Silver Cross Hospital before posting bail.

The bond was $300, per the Boston Herald, and Fisk is due in court in November 29.

The 64-year-old former catcher was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2000.
