North Oakland Now: March 4, 2009

on March 4, 2009

Good morning ya’ll.

For all you exhibitionists out there, according to the San Mateo County Times, SFO has introduced full-body image scanners as another option for passengers to gain security clearance.  A 3-D makeup of your body is rendered on a screen, naughty bits and all.  I haven’t been to the gym lately, so I think I’ll pass.

Speaking of showing some skin, according to the Contra Costa Times, skin melanomas are on the rise in the United States.  It’s increasing rapidly mostly among light-skinned older people, but please everyone, slop on that sunscreen–we’re all susceptible.
