It raised more than $130,000, garnering widespread media attention and tweets from celebrities including Ellen DeGeneres and J.K. Rowling. Because it brought in considerably more than expected, El-Messidi vowed to use the remaining money strictly when needed to counter anti-Semitism.

    Maybe moderate drinking isn't so good for you after all

    We generally assume moderate drinking (two standard drinks per day) is good for our health.
