A new study from researchers at the University of Hong Kong and the Indiana University estimates that corruption on the state level is costing Americans in the 10 most corrupt states an average of $1,308 per year, or 5.2% of those states’ average expenditures per year.

 The researchers studied more than 25,000 convictions of public officials for violation of federal corruption laws between 1976 and 2008 as well as patterns in state spending to develop a corruption index that estimates the most and least corrupt states in the union.” - Christopher Matthews, The 10 most corrupt states in the U.S.

In an interview with photography Web site PetaPixel, Lepage spoke passionately about the serious, sober news stories not covered by mainstream media: “I can’t accept that people’s tragedies are silenced simply because no one can make money out of them,” she said. “I decided to do it myself, and bring some light to them no matter what.” - RIP Camille Lepage, French photojournalist killed in Central African Republic, Washington Post.

Life Advice From the Oldest Man in the World.

• No kids. Imich is childless, his closest living relative an 84-year-old nephew. Stress-free.

• No drinking or smoking. He quit smoking forever ago and never indulged in the sauce. (For nearly everyone, it’s probably already too late.)

• Exercise while your body still can. “I was a gymnast,” he told theTimes. “Good runner, a good springer. Good javelin, and I was a good swimmer.”

• Don’t eat too much, except ice cream. Also good: “matzo balls, gefilte fish, chicken noodle soup, Ritz crackers, scrambled eggs, chocolate.” So, like a Jewish 10-year-old.

• Take things as they come, but not too seriously. Of his new title, Imich said, “Not like it’s the Nobel Prize.”

"‘What is the nature of the search?’ you ask. Really it is very simple; at least for a fellow like me. So simple that it is easily overlooked. The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life."

-Binx Bolling, The Moviegoer by Walker Percy
