Bed Bugs Invade NYC

Tiny blood-sucking bedbugs have become an epidemic in New York City. The little pests have invaded even the cleanest and most expensive apartments in neighborhoods around New York. In fact, a councilwoman from the Upper West Side has called for a citywide bedbug task force to address the problem.

What Are Bedbugs?
A bedbug is a wingless, rust-colored insect about the size of an apple seed. Bedbugs are nocturnal parasites, which means they rest during the day and come out to dine on the blood of humans at night. Bedbugs are attracted by human body heat and typically favor feasting on our shoulders and arms (ewww).

During feeding, the bedbug's proboscis pierces the skin of its victim, injecting bedbug saliva (double ewww). Bedbugs typically feed for five to ten minutes at a time. As the little critter fills with blood, its colouring changes from light brown to rust–red.

Do You Have Bedbugs?
Bedbugs hide in cracks and crevices. They love to live in bedding and on mattresses, where they have easy access to food (i.e. you). Other living areas favored by bedbugs include:

Between wooden floorboards
* In wall cracks and crevices
* In carpeting
* In the seams and cracks of furniture, particularly bed frames
* Under loose edges of wallpaper
* Behind peeling paint

Bedbug Bites
Bedbugs are rarely seen in action by their human victims. The first signs of a bedbug infestation are usually bites. Bedbug bites are generally painless, though itchy and annoying. They tend to start as swollen wheals, then fade to red marks and gradually disappear over a few days.

Experts suggest washing bedbug bites with antiseptic soap to avoid infection. The itching can be treated with calamine lotion or anaesthetic creams.

Aside from those nasty bites, other signs that bedbugs may have moved in include:

* Tiny bloodstains from crushed bugs on sheets or mattresses
* Dark spots of bug excrement on bedding or walls
* An offensive musty odor when infestations are severe

How Bedbugs Spread
Bedbugs often spread by hitching rides on people's clothing. They jump from host to host when people brush up against each other in crowds (yet another reason to keep your distance on the subway).

They also spread through mattresses. Reconditioned mattresses, which are refurbished old mattresses, often spread bedbugs into stores and homes. In addition, bedbugs can spread when old and new mattresses are transported in the same truck.

Experts say bedbugs have been all but dormant for decades. The recent comeback is said to be primarily the result of increased global travel, along with the banning of potent pesticides like DDT.

Getting Rid of Bedbugs
Getting rid of bedbugs can be tricky. In proper conditions, adult bedbugs can survive without a meal for a year or longer. However, these annoying pests can be eliminated, usually with the help of a professional exterminator.

Here are some do-it-yourself methods you can try before you call the exterminator:

* Thoroughly wash, vacuum or clean all surfaces and bedding.
* Wash or dry-clean bedding and affected clothing. Use hot water and a dryer on the hottest setting whenever possible.
* Vacuum mattresses, seal them in plastic and leave them outside in the hot sun for as long as possible.
* Steam clean carpets.
* Spray cracks and crevices with an insecticide designed to control bedbugs. Follow the label directions carefully. Do not treat bedding with insecticide.

If these methods don't work, it may be necessary to hire a professional. A qualified exterminator can use stronger insecticides to kill the bedbugs. Repeat visits may be necessary to ensure that all bedbugs are eliminated.

"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
— Marilyn Monroe

Bert Stern

His best known work is arguably The Last Sitting, a collection of 2,500 photographs taken of Marilyn Monroe over a three day period, six weeks before her death, taken for Vogue. Stern published Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting in 1992. In it, he recounted being enchanted by her until a near-intimate encounter after the second day of shooting; he then realized that she was deeply troubled.

He also directed Jazz on a Summer's Day, a 1959 documentary film set at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. In 1999 the film was deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.

Stern worked as a photographer on Lolita and shot the publicity photographs of Sue Lyon. He has photographed Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Drew Barrymore and Lindsay Lohan (recreating The Last Sitting), among others, in addition to his work for advertising and travel publications.

Upcoming movies

I love love love love love going to the movies, it's almost the best thing in the world. Even though the prices went up i still pay -__- I find myself going on movie sites checking for new previews when there's nothing else to do. This summer I plan on going to the movies at least once a week, even if it's by myself. But anyway, these are some movies I thought were worth posting.

"Flipped" The soundtrack alone makes me warm inside

"Cyrus" Classic independent film but with Jonah Hill and John C. Riley

"The Other Guys" Will Ferrell AND Mark Wahlberg..... Come on! "That's a wooden gun...BOOM"

"Last Airbender" This doesnt even need an explanation

Then there's "Life as we know it" with Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhammel, "Knight and Day" with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, "Dispicable Me" with Steve Carell, there's a few others but these are the ones I really wanna see.
