giant goat in swedish town

A town in Sweden wants people to not burn down their goat.
The goat has been burned down every year since 1966. The goat is 40 feet tall. It was made from stronger stuff that prevents it from getting burned.

a new resource for those of you who are blind and need accessible apps

I was looking through a website called ?www.horizons-blind.org/
This site has many great articles all about different apps that can make a person with blindness feel like they are apart of this sited world. Anyway, I was reading about an app that lets you record your life on your iphone called “heard” The writer of the article was not a fan because of its accessibility issues.
Anyway, I found a cite that writes reviews from apple users who test out many different apps to see if they are accessible. From my short time looking at the cite I figure it is as good of a place as any to start on the road to accessible apps. http://www.applevis.com/
