Bombing Highlights NYC Subway System's Vulnerability
NEW YORK (AP) — The crude pipe bomb that exploded beneath the streets of New York this week served as a chilling reminder of the vulnerability of the city's subway system, a 24-hour-a-day operation with 472 stations and more than 5 million daily riders. While police say the nation's largest subway system has some of the tightest security possible that still allows busy New Yorkers to get where they're going, they acknowledge they can't be everywhere or anticipate every kind of attack, particularly in this era of lone-wolf terrorism.

Pipe Bomb Explodes in NYC Subway, 4 Injured
NEW YORK (AP) — A man with a pipe bomb strapped to his body with Velcro and zip ties set off the crude device in the subway near Times Square on Monday, injuring him and three other people at the height of the morning rush hour.

Jamaican weed stabilizes blood sugar
It was pouring rain. I could barely see as I drove up the winding mountains. But I would not be deterred from my mission. I was on my way to finally meet Jamaica’s last living Maroon healer, Ivey Harris. I finally arrived at her secluded mountain home and she met me with open arms… and an umbrella.

One of my favorites was a Jamaican vine with weird-looking warty green fruit. Most people in the U.S. would call it a weed. Today, I grow it in my backyard here in South F...
