Was that last txt worth it?

A new and in-your-face ad campaign by UK agency Blue Hive, is sending an important, yet chilly, message: Don't text and drive -- you may just end up in a freezer.

Jason Tetro: Is Your Anti-Bacterial Handwash Harming You?

JD Halperin: When Tweets Can (Buzz) Kill
Boorish foodies are in the news!

Ron Mashate: Is Your Digital Diet the Equivalent of Junk Food?

Minnow Hamilton: SavvyMom Roundup: Olympics, Snacks and Celebrity Obsessions
I'll begin with some final words on the Olympics. I'm sorry they are over. I miss them already. I loved watching the athleticism and courage of the amazing athletes from all over the world. I loved judging their behaviour (to cry or not to cry) when I was in no position to do so and I loved reading the commentary from other media channels.
