Computer outage at space station may force spacewalk
AP: A computer outage at the International Space Station may require astronauts to complete a spacewalk and delay next week’s launch of a supply ship next week.
A backup computer on the outside of the station is not responding to commands, NASA said Friday. While the main computer is working fine, both computers are needed for a cargo ship to bring nearly 5,000 pounds of supplies next week.
Mission Control is working to determine whether the computer must be replaced, which would force a spacewalk by one of the station’s six astronauts.

About 40% of L.A. County food trucks and carts haven’t been inspected in the field by health officials since letter grades were introduced three years ago. And most of the remaining 60% have only been inspected half as often as official guidelines specify.
"How do I know that? Because Angelo Bellomo, director of environmental health for the county Department of Public Health, told me so. He oversees inspections of all eateries, including mobile ones," consumer columnist David Lazarus writes.
Nearly all area food trucks do get a separate annual certification inspection, but it happens at the truck’s storage site, not while it’s out serving food. The toughest part of inspecting in the field, Bellomo told Lazarus, is actually finding the trucks.

Want to sound like a complete douchebag when you walk into a cheese shop? There is a certain something that can take place when being surrounded by decadence and social status symbols. It can make even the most humble gent or dame a downright tool.
Let me tell you about cheese speak. When you’re on that hot OkCupid first date and you think it’s super charming and pretty chill to just, “I don’t know, make dinner and get to know each other,” this is not the time to pretend to know shit about cheese if your end game involves thoughts of getting laid.
