Vampire Weekend Release Live in Florida EP

Vampire Weekend has released a new live EP that will remind fans what it was like to go to a live show (since that obviously isn’t happening for a while).

Titled Live in Florida, the EP was recorded at a pair of the band’s show at St. Augustine Amphitheatre and at the James L. Knight Center in Miami, respectively.

“Vampire Weekend has had a long and healthy relationship with the Florida music fan, and last summer’s Miami/St. Augustine run was no different,” drummer Chris Tomson said in a statement. “These shows were a little sticky in the August humidity but I had so much fun playing and the really great crowd vibes always help (especially, but not limited to, Nick from Orlando’s inspired assistance on A-Punk). These shows stayed with me like the pepper sauce from O’Steen’s

You may be familiar with the idea that your gut and skin are home to a collection of microbes – fungi, bacteria and viruses – that are vital for keeping you healthy. But did you know that your eyes also host a unique menagerie of microbes? Together, they’re called the eye microbiome. When these microbes are out of balance – too many or too few of certain types – eye diseases may emerge.

With a recent study showing bacteria live on the surface of the eye and stimulate protective immunity, scientists are beginning to discover the microbial factors that can be exploited to create innovative therapies for a range of eye disorders like Dry Eye Disease, Sjogren’s Syndrome and corneal scarring. One day it may be possible to engineer bacteria

NEW YORK (AP) — Given an extra 3 1/2 months for their brittle stars to heal, the New York Yankees will closely monitor the conditioning of Aaron Judge, James Paxton, Aaron Hicks and Giancarlo Stanton ahead of a season unlike any other.

”We want these players to withstand a 60-game sprint over a 66-day schedule,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday on the eve of the first arrivals for ”spring” training 2.0, already dubbed summer camp in Major League Baseball’s marketing deal.

These low-maintenance reptiles hail from Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Iran. But it’s their perky personalities and tiny size that makes them endearing to humans and children. Your leopard gecko doesn’t require a lot of care, but setting up a nurturing terrarium from the start will keep your lizard happy and healthy.
