BOOZE: Do you consider yourself a "heavy drinker"? What does that even mean? Well, the Centers for Disease Control has an idea, but you probably won't like it. If you have more than a drink or two a day (depending if you're a gal or a guy), you may meet the qualifications. (CNN)

BEES: The Oregon Department of Agriculture is temporarily banning the use of pesticides linked to bee deaths, following high profile incidents in Eugene and Beaverton. Why should you care? Because, food. (KTVZ)

BIKE DRAMA: The Alliance for Biking and Walking recently got riled up about the alleged future exclusion of non-motorized commenting options from future censuses. The catch: They aren't going anywhere. Was the advocacy group confused or simply stirring the pot? (Oregonian)

FASHIONABLE FUGITIVE: WikiLeaks' Julian Assange is due to make his modeling debut at a London Fashion Week event at the Ecuadorian Embassy (where he's been hiding out to avoid extradition). Hot or not, designer Ben Westwood says he chose Assange for political, not sartorial, reasons. (UK Independent)

#YESALLWOMEN: Witnessing a man touch himself in public is such a common experience for women that in London, more than 2,000 officers have been trained to deal with unwanted sexual advances in public transportation. Dudes, keep it in your pants. (The Guardian)
