Babymooning in Chincoteague Island!!

I just booked a babymoon for the first week of July in Chincoteague Island!! Fwiw I'll be 29 weeks pregnant. What should I do there!? I am sooo excited! Food, nature, kayaking, beach, horses, walking around town all sounds delightful. I'm ok for slow physical exertion but do have weak spells so will skip anything rough.

Seeking source of quote about making art as a minority

A few years ago I read a quote from a (POC I believe, at least a minority of some fashion) artist where the gist was "because we're minorities no one cares what we make, but because no one cares we can make whatever we want". (It was shared via a Facebook post so it's devoid of context.) I can't seem to find the source though and Google is failing me. Help?

Updated Versions

In 2010, Editor and Publishers produced a .pdf guide to Journalism competitions and awards. I haven't found an updated version since. Considering the angst around the "Enemy of the People" meme, I would think these kind of directories would be flourishing. Can anyone else find an updated version of this?

Need a physical therapist in ME/NH with experience & expertise in tennis

I'm recovering well from surgery for a disc rupture, and it is finally time to start physical therapy. But rather than go to a generic PT, I need someone who understands the mechanics (specifically the core rotation and movements) of tennis, since getting back to USTA competition is my near-term goal. I'm in Maine, but am willing to travel to Southern NH or even NE-MA/Boston for the right person. [more inside]

Retrotransposon documentaries?

Retrotransposons tell us a lot of interesting things about evolution. Are there any great documentaries about them? Ideally it would talk about pufferfish genomes (hardly any retrotransposon content), the phylogeny of mammals and plants (lots of retrotransposon content in genomes that can help us trace family trees), the phylogeny of retrotransposons themselves (how are the different retrotransposons related to each other?) and the junk DNA vs. biologically active vs. evolutionarily active debate about retrotransposon content in genomes. Ideally, it would be aimed at a lay audience - Attenborough sort of stuff.

Search alerts still available on Facebook Marketplace?

I'm new to Facebook Marketplace. I would like to set up an alert for one of my searches on it, so I get a notification when a new listing is created that meets those search criteria. From Googling this I see that this rather obvious feature at least USED to exist, but it's proven so impossible for me to actually put in place for me that I wonder if it still exists. Does it exist, and if so, how do I do it?

Detroit-area fibromyalgia doctors or resources?

My wife suffers from fibromyalgia and needs a new doctor. We are moving to Detroit in two weeks, and we'll be staying in Midtown, Rosedale Park, or Bagley. One of the toughest things to leave behind is her care team. We'd like to find the right doctor: one who is engaged, supportive, focused on solutions, and doesn't over-perscribe. One with training in fibro and PTSD is better. One who is all of the above and connected to a research-level institution is the best. Detroiters, who do you or your friends see for primary care or specialty care ? Thanks so much!
