Sure, my boss took advantage of me,but I will always remain firm on this point: It was a consensual relationship. Any ‘abuse’ came in the aftermath, when I was made a scapegoat in order to protect his powerful position.
[After Tyler Clementi’s suicide, my mother] was reliving 1998, when she wouldn’t let me out of her sight. She was replaying those weeks when she stayed by my bed, night after night, because I, too, was suicidal. The shame, the scorn, and the fear that had been thrown at her daughter left her afraid that I would take my own life – a fear that I would be literally humiliated to death.
It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress and to stop “tiptoeing around my past. Perhaps by sharing my story, I might be able to help others in their darkest moments of humiliation. The question became: How do I find and give a purpose to my past?"
After years of avoiding the public spotlight, Lewinski was inspired to break her silence by the suicide of Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old Rutgers student

This artist creates eerily beautiful casts of pest ant colonies such as those of fire ants and carpenter ants by using molten aluminium to clear them instead of poison
7 Modernist Sand Castles, From a Master’s Hand Calvin Seibert creates handmade sand castles.
The Osteoid Medical cast recently won the A’Design Award in the 3-D Printed Forms and Products Design category. Fast Company asked Mount Sinai Hospital hand surgeon Dr. Michael Hausman whether the Osteoid is a viable treatment.
Dr. Hausman’s verdict? Maybe. Customising the 3D cast is currently more expensive than a plaster cast because it requires a 3D body scan of the patient’s wounded area. But Hausman seeks potential in the Osteoid - it can be hooked up to low-intensity pulsing ultrasound (LIPUS). According to recent studies, exposure of fractures to LIPUS may be able to speed up healing, particularly in non-union fractures. If production costs decrease, the Osteoid could have great potential in the field of orthopedics.
My idea was to elevate the butter pat above the plate, using toothpicks as shown in the above image, to avoid contact with the plate and hopefully achieve even heating without melting.
Using the toothpick tripod method, you can simply set the microwave for any sufficiently long length of time, and then carefully watch the microwave until the buttery tripod softens and falls down under its own weight. The result is perfectly spreadable butter with no melted liquid, every time.- Josef Spalenka, The Spalenka Letters
