ALL Saints Church Brockhampton, near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire, England, has been replicated on the 21st and 22nd floors of an Osaka, Japan, high rise. The 3/4 size replicate indoor churchbuilding is used for weddings. ~ link

• NEW analysis by researchers from UC Berkeley and a consortium of Korean institutions suggests a correlation between cell phone use and brain tumors. The problem could extend to other areas of the body, too, according to Dr Vini Khurana. ~ link

"Most women should consume no more than 25 grams (about 6 teaspoons) of added sugars a day; most men, no more than 37.5 grams (about 9 teaspoons). With 4 calories per gram of sugar, that’s no more than 100 calories of added sugars for women, and no more than 150 for men." Bummer. ~ link

They currently have a pretty decent digital presence but haven't been able to translate it into revenue. Last April two Tribune reporters, Ryan Gabrielson and Paul Giblin, were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for local news reporting. ~ link

• "ARIZONA is expected to lose more jobs in 2010, but at a much slower pace than this year..." ~ link
