September 11th

I recently visited the crash site of United Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA. The memorial's location has moved to an area across the road from where it was. There was something striking about the empty space where the memorial used to be. These are a few photos from then and now.

More than two in five college students have smoked tobacco from a waterpipe or hookah, and researchers are concerned because a third of those students otherwise would have been tobacco-free, according to a University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine study.
