Today in San Francisco’s in Dolores Park, on the first day of summer, we found unique methods to beat the high temperatures. This young man brought his princess pool and lied still until it filled using the parks sprinkler system as water source. Good thinking whipper-snapper!

Meet Naki’o: The first dog to be fitted “with a complete set of bionic legs.”
Naki’o tragic life — his owners abandoned him as a puppy when their Nebraska home was foreclosed, and he lost his paws to frostbite after getting stuck in an icy puddle — took a turn for the best when he was adopted by veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson, who raised funds necessary to purchase prosthetics for Naki’o’s hind legs.
Orthopets, the company that designed and fitted the dog’s new limbs, decided to provide Naki’o with front paws free of charge after seeing how enthusiastically he took to the prosthetics.
“Naki’o can now not only chase after a ball with other dogs,” Tomlinson is quoted as saying, “but he can beat them to the catch!”

Guy Robs Bank So He Can Get Health Care in Prison James Verone, a 59-year-old former truck driver, was having serious medical problems that he couldn’t afford to get checked out or treated. If only North Carolina had a free, state-run health-care system!, he thought. Then he realized it does: in prison. And so one morning Verone hailed a cab, headed to (the randomly-chosen) RBC bank, and handed the teller a note “demanding one dollar, and medical attention.” As it happens, one dollar is not enough money to count as a “bank robbery” (and garner the jail time that goes with it), and Verone will be charged with “larceny from a person.” Nonetheless, the Gaston Gazette writes, Verone has already “seen several nurses and has an appointment with a doctor Friday.”
Support is a Major Component in Coming-Out Process A new study by the University of Rochester has highlighted the personal rewards for LGBT people in coming out as well as the link between their happiness and community support. The research found that support is one of the most important elements in the coming-out process. People who came out in hostile or judgmental environments did not enjoy the same benefits as those in supportive ones.

Obama’s gay marriage conundrum Obama’s claim eight months ago that his position is evolving on gay marriage seems to have created a political conundrum: It has led gay advocates to demand, understandably, to know when his position will reach full evolution. As I noted here yesterday, the problem is that Obama has left everyone believing that he believes in full equality but that he’s not quite prepared to take the final step of saying so.
David Tyree, hero of Giants’ Super Bowl upset of Patriots, said he’d trade win to block gay marriage ALBANY - Giants 2007 Super Bowl hero David Tyree said he’d trade “The Catch” and the team’s unlikely championship to keep marriage between one man and one woman. Tyree is best remembered in his career for his miraculous late-game catch in Super Bowl XLII against the Patriots, trapping the ball against his helmet while being pulled down by New England safety Rodney Harrison.
Joe Jonas Covers ‘Paper’ Magazine’s Summer Music Issue Joe Jonas looks dapper in a Neil Barretttuxedo, shirt, and bow tie on the cover ofPaper magazine’s Summer Music Issue. Here’s what the 21-year-old entertainer had to share: On branching out from the Jonas Brothers: “My brothers [Kevin and Nick] and I, we’re like each other’s best friends, and I think it’s that foundation that makes me feel like I can really do this on my own for a second.” On the inspiration for his upcoming album, Fastlife: “I don’t mean to name-drop but about a year-and-a-half ago I metBono, and he told me to write music that was really honest, to not be afraid to go there.”
Amy Winehouse Gives Up Amy Winehouse pulls the plug on her entire concert tour. Chris Brown accidentally tweets a private message for Rihanna. Kanye West hides the fact that he has girly alcohol preferences. Tuesday gossip says no, no, no. After her trainwreck performance in Serbia, Amy Winehouse canceled a couple stops on her European tour. Now, she’s canceled the entire tour. No word whether she’s going back to rehab, or just returning to her sad, messy life in England, smoking crack in a house full of half-eaten junk food, dirty laundry, and the feces of mice.
