The NHL and NHLPA officially partner with You Can Play.

The official partnership with You Can Play includes a significant commitment to education and training for teams, players, media and fans plus the production and broadcast of more public service announcements.

You Can Play will conduct seminars at the NHL's rookie symposium to educate young prospects on LGBT issues. In addition, You Can Play will make its resources and personnel available to each individual team as desired.

The NHLPA and NHL also will work with You Can Play to integrate the project into their Behavioral Health Program, enabling players to confidentially seek counseling or simply ask questions regarding matters of sexual orientation.

(Best to avoid the comments. Yikes.)

Politics!

Introducing BEARD PAC:

The BEARD PAC will support candidates from across the political spectrum as long as they have sufficient facial hair.

“It’s been 125 years since our last bearded President, Benjamin Harrison, was elected,” BEARD PAC Communications Director Andy Shapero said. “We’re hoping that with our support, bearded individuals will shrug off over a century of political irrelevance and start running for office again.”

A diplomatic crisis in Mali:

As if President François Hollande of France did not have enough trouble with a stagnant economy and a scandal over his former budget minister’s secret overseas bank accounts, now his camel has been eaten.

“As soon as we heard of this, we quickly replaced it with a bigger and better-looking camel,” an official in Timbuktu told the Reuters news agency.

Technology!

Incidentally, that post alerts me to the existence of this, "the first adult haptic device for men". Here's a glowing review, complete with tear-down.

Crime news from Maine:

Christopher Knight went into the central Maine wilderness 27 years ago.

He built a hut on a slope in the woods, where he spent his days reading books and meditating.

There he lived, re-entering civilization only to steal supplies from camps under the cover of darkness. During those nearly three decades, he spoke just once to another person – until he was arrested during a burglary last week.

On Tuesday, Christianson pointed to a spot a few feet away from Knight's tent: "He said he's watched that mushroom grow for the last four years."
