My favorite Net posting was for one spa treatment I would love to sign up for, a Spa Lami from Living Social, Porkland. http://tinyurl.com/4y7flhr

“Discover the hautest trend in beauty with today’s deal from Spa-Lami, Porkland’s first meat-themed med-spa.”

“Your treatment begins with a paté facial, complete with deli-cut slices of premium salami that are placed over your eyes by USDA-certified, hormone-free owner Carl Nivore.”

“A prosciutto neck wrap and ground beef compress come next, followed by a soothing gravy-aroma therapy treatment (in beef or turkey) and Swedish meatball massage”

Flooded rivers systems are seen from the air in Windorah, Australia. Queensland recently suffered a series of extreme floods, affecting more than 200,000 people across more than 70 towns. The state is recovering and after the flooding, many areas of outback Queensland are now thriving with the resulting effect on wildlife and flora being described as once-in-a-generation (Photograph: Mark Kolbe/Getty Images)

India is now home to 17% of the world’s people as its population climbed to 1.21 billion this year, though growth actually slowed for the first time in 90 years, census officials said. With 623.7 million males and 586.5 million females, India’s population was bigger than the combined populations of the United States, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
