Are those real?

WOMEN may be able to undergo a "natural" form of breast enlargement using their own stem cells and fat.AA The technique, pioneered in Japan, results in breasts that look and feel smoother than conventional cosmetic surgery using implants.

Stem cells, which have the potential to change into any cells in the body, are found in embryos, but the most plentiful supply in adults is from body fat. When body fat is transferred to the breasts, the stem cells enable the fat to grow its own blood supply, thus becoming an integral part of the breast rather than a foreign object.

Dozens of women in Japan have received the enlargements during trials. This month, German authorities gave approval to the process. Under EU rules, this means that the procedure is now legal throughout Europe, including Britain.

"Four score and seven years ago, it was 1920, which was four score and seven years after 1833, which was the year Abraham Lincoln turned 24, which is the number of hours in the day, which means that now is the time for great change in America." "In honor of the 87th anniversary of the 87th anniversary of Lincoln’s 24th birthday, I have made a list of four score and seven things that I vow to do to become more like President Lincoln."

Grand Canyon Skywalk

GRAND CANYON WEST, ARIZ. a€" Perched over the Grand Canyon close to a mile above the Colorado River, a massive, multimillion-dollar glass walkway will soon open for business as the centerpiece of a struggling Indian tribe’s plan to lure tourists to its remote reservation.

An engineering marvel or a colossal eyesore, depending on who is describing it, the horseshoe-shaped glass walkway will jut out 70 feet beyond the canyon’s edge on the Hualapai Indian Reservation just west of Grand Canyon Village. Buttressed by 1 million pounds of steel and supporting 90 tons of tempered glass, the see-through deck will give visitors a breathtaking view of the canyon.

A Ninja’s Guide to New York

Not ironically, an idea we toss around the Gridskipper office is that of forming a ninja squadron. We not only want to dress like ninjas but eat like ninjas, blog like ninjas, sleep like ninjas and fight like ninjas. After much thought, we delved into the world of black arts and found the ninja secrets of New York. Join us after the flying leap for the lowdown on Ninja spots.

Outfit: Ninjas mostly wear all black to blend into the night though they can also wear dark red or blue. Their outfits are called Shinobi Shozuku while their masks are called Sanjaku-tenugu and their split-toed shoes are Jika Tabi. You can buy all these supplies at most martial art stores. We recommend New Hope where the sanjaku tenugu will run you $10.00, a pair of tabi around $35 as will a nice polycotton blend shinobi shozuku.

Weapons: Unfortunately many ninja items are illegal in New York City. Ergo, you can get ninja stars but only rubber, ditto that with nunchucks. Bad news, your deadly throwing power will be thwarted. good news, you won’t end up in prison, necessarily. Ninja stars and nunchucks are available at New Hope. Hand claws, foot spikes and real metal ninja stars are available through Gungfu.

Eateries: Ninjas avoid places like ninja which they feel demeans their black arts. They much prefer more hidden gems like the Parker Meridien’s Burger Joint where they often stay when in town for their missions. Other favorites, when they’re not in the mood for heavy burgers is Sakagura for sushi and sake. It’s low key, romantic and furtive, just like the ideal ninja.

Skills: Despite all the trappings of ninjery, a ninja is only as good as his ninjitsu. Our favorite dojo has to be Chinatown’s Muzosa Bujikan Dojo. Under 5th dan black belt Jeff Christian, the dojo is a welcoming environment for tyro ninjas like ourselves. They even offer a free class on Monday nights.

Quick fire round
Ninja’s Favorite Music Venue: Lit
Ninja’s Favorite Website: Kinja
Ninja’s Favorite Neighborhood: Inwood, probably.
NInja’s Favorite Pret-a-porter: Y-3
