It's an emotional day in the City of Boston. Please note that there will be a moment of silence at 2:49pm in observance of the events of last year's Boston Marathon. The Monday following the Marathon, we were joined by Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief Daniel Linskey. Many of you have requested that we replay that interview, and if you missed it, here's the podcast:
Later in the morning, we heard from Dave McGillivray, Race Director for the B.A.A. Boston Marathon. He told us about his history with the race and what this year means to everyone involved.
An update on the woman we discussed yesterday... she was attacked in her garage by a black bear, one of five that was picking through her trash. Here, she speaks out about her ordeal on the TODAY Show:
A mysterious black ring in the sky? What could it be? A 16 year-old girl photographed this crazy thing hovering in the sky over England recently and there are all sorts of rumors about what it could be. Greg thinks it's a UFO. One caller was convinced it was a smoke ring from a transformer fire. Rock-bottom Rob thought it might be a swarm of insects. What do you think it is? Check out the link and comment below.
Did you miss the first Mantown Alert today? People have always assumed that porn for women needs to feature emotional connections and sweet, gentle lovemaking. NOPE. They want to see the same deviant hardcore stuff you do. Ogi Ogas and Sai Gaddam are neuroscientists who studied women's brains as they watched porn. They found while most women don't really watch porn, the ones who do don't want it softcore . . . they get turned on by the same stuff as men. Ogas says, quote, "What turns women on is different to what they wish turned them on or how they politically feel about it." In other words, women wished they were turned on by romantic porn . . . but that's just not what happens.
