Ugly people or "uglo-Americans," as "The Daily Show" coined them. Ugly people have a harder time getting loans and make less money, according to University of Texas economics professor Daniel S. Hamermesh, who argues the U.S. should offer the same legal protections afforded to other minority groups to the unattractive.  "The Daily Show" skewered the idea on Monday's episode.

The three sisters of Haim didn't release any music until they'd been a band for five years, spending much of that time honing what's now a must-see live show. On “Falling,” the first track on the group's consistently catchy debut album “Days Are Gone,” they sing, “No one's ever enough.” Conclusion: These are women with great expectations. “We definitely do have high standards, and we're definitely not afraid to say no,” says Alana Haim by phone with a laugh. “I think before the record came out a lot of people around us were kind of pressuring us to turn it in,...

Lock on, Chicago. If you're biking the city this summer, you'll need to invest in a good lock (or four, depending on how paranoid you are). Otherwise, you're vulnerable to bike theft. Bike theft is common in major cities, and all the more common in the summer months, when more riders are on the roads and the crime rate rises. The Chicago Police Department doesn't track bike thefts separately from other theft reports, making it difficult to say how frequently thefts occur and where they're most likely to happen.

Cyclists, get ready for life in the fast lane in Roscoe Village. The Chicago Department of Transportation is working on installing a buffered bike lane on Roscoe Street between Western and Damen Avenues. Buffered bike lanes offer more room between cyclists and parked cars than a typical bike lane. They use a striped buffer on one or both sides of a bike lane. Protected bike lanes, such as the one on Kinzie Street between Milwaukee Avenue and Wells Street, use posts to separate bikes from cars.

Chicago unveiled its first completed protected bicycle lane Monday as part of Mayor Emanuel's plan to make the city more bike-friendly. The new lane, which separates cyclist traffic from vehicle traffic with soft posts, spans a half-mile stretch of Kinzie Street between Milwaukee Avenue and Wells Street and cost an estimated $140,000 to install. Emanuel's administration has said the city plans to add 25 miles of bike lanes per year, for a total of 100 over his four-year term.

After attending the infamous "Oops" Republican debate in Michigan, I've come to two conclusions: First, President Obama will win a second term, and second, I'm going to need a left eyebrow transplant after raising it so many times in what I call "confusiohorror. " As I watched from the media filing center in an auxiliary basketball court, I was struck by just how divorced the rhetoric espoused by that collection of losers and half-wits was from the reality of the challenges we face - those still screamed in the streets by the evicted Occupy movement.
