posted by Boxer - 

TODAY IS NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION DAY. It’s a day to honor the hard work of teachers and recognize the lasting impact they have on our lives. Send your thanks at #TeacherAppreciationDay.

IN BRIEF:

  • Want to get better service at a restaurant? Dress up. According to a new University of Missouri study, waiters and waitresses assume diners who are well-dressed will leave bigger tips … so they give them better treatment. (Study Finds)    
  • Need a change of scenery? How about getting paid to move to a quaint Italian village? Bormida, a remote mountain village with a population of just 394, is considering offering $2,000 to people who move there. And once you’re there, you can pay as little as $55-$131 a month for rent. Apparently the population of Bormida has been dwindling lately, and the town’s mayor, Daniele Galliano, proposed the idea as a way to keep the town alive. FYI: The nearest city is Genoa, 50 miles away. (Metro)   
  • This tops Nordstrom selling $425 muddy jeans … Neiman Marcus is selling “heavily distressed” (as in ripped) white high tops designed by Maison Margiela ... for the low, low price of $1,425. (AOL)    
  • Forget the flowers this year and get mom a bouquet of doughnuts. For Mother’s Day this year, Tim Horton's is introducing a one-day-only [Mother’s Day] doughnut bouquet featuring 24 doughnut holes on sticks, wrapped up with a bow. (Huffington Post
