Earlier this month, John and Sherry Petersik, the husband-and-wife duo behind the hugely popular home-renovation blog Young House Love, apologized to their readers for not writing their regular Thursday post, and asked how they felt about shorter posts when “we can’t write something juicy.”
The casual visitor to Young House Love would hardly have noticed a lack of industriousness. The Petersiks, who are in their early 30s and live in Richmond, Va., have bought and renovated three homes in the last eight years, each project bigger than the last, while also publishing a best-selling how-to book, designing a line of wall hooks sold by Target, decorating an entire show house, having two children and blogging, tweeting and Instagramming every last detail of it. Young House Love has an almost mind-numbing amount of D.I.Y. content, like instructions on how to install laundry-room cabinets and how to stain concrete floors, all of it delivered step-by-step in the cheerful, self-deprecating, broadly comic tone that has made the Petersiks Internet stars.
In June 2001, under a cloud-streaked sky, Rebecca Gomperts set out from the Dutch port of Scheveningen in a rented 110-foot ship bound for Ireland. Lashed to the deck was a shipping container, freshly painted light blue and stocked with packets of mifepristone (which used to be called RU-486) and misoprostol. The pills are given to women in the first trimester to induce a miscarriage. Medical abortion, as this procedure is called, had recently become available in the Netherlands. But use of misoprostol and mifepristone to end a pregnancy was illegal in Ireland, where abortion by any means remains against the law, with few exceptions.

Conspiracy theorists have gotten the green light to chatter about another strange object on the Red Planet. This time it’s not a Mars rat or a jelly doughnut that’s been spotted in a photo taken by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover, but a “traffic signal.”
The extraterrestrial “signal” was spotted by a British UFO enthusiast named Joseph White. Curiosity snapped the photo at 1:08 a.m. EDT on sol 753 (Sept. 19). You can see the original here.
“I have been following the images from NASA since the start and I flick through them on the NASA website every day,” White said, according to the Western Daily Press. “I saw this one and I thought ‘Hang on, that looks a bit strange.'”
While White said he believes what he spotted is “clearly intelligently designed,” as he wrote on his latest video on the Youtube Channel ArtAlienTV-Mars Zoo, the formation is most likely just a rock.
A teen girl shot and killed a man as she and her boyfriend tried to rob the victim of his Playstation 4, police say.
The victim, 28-year-old Daniel John Zeitz of Roswell, Georgia (pictured), met up with the couple Friday after posting a Craigslist ad to sell the gaming console. The alleged shooter is an unnamed 16-year-old girl whose 16-month-old baby was sitting in the car, only a few feet away during the robbery, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon told the paper that the suspect and her boyfriend, 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian, met Zeitz in an apartment parking lot, posing as potential buyers.
Danny Zeitz was shot and killed Friday over a PS4. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help his family with funeral costs.
A group of Tennessee cheerleaders decided to bring prayer back to the football field.
Oneida High School administrators instituted a moment of silence after receiving complaints from secular groups about school-led prayers at the district’s Friday night football games. But members of the cheer squad, upset about breaking the more than 80 year old tradition, recently started reciting the prayers on their own.
Cheerleader Asia Canada said she couldn’t help but speak up.
