Princess of Mars (link roundup)

And a few more links:

1. Meet Lindsey Vonn Out, American skier:

Her trainer, former Austrian National Ski Team conditioning coach Martin Hager, pricks the lobes of Vonn's ears several times a day and squeezes out a drop of blood. A wee device instantly calculates her body chemistry to measure exertion and hydration.
2. Giant Robot wants $60,000 in donations so they can publish six issues in 2010. Eric Nakamura responds to people questioning the move in the comments here. (Now that they've raised $10k, I wonder what they'll do with the money if they don't make it all the way to $60k.)

3. I live in Los Angeles yet somehow completely missed this: "The air acrobat who fell three stories during a Christmas performance at the Beverly Center spent seven weeks in a wheelchair with numerous broken bones."
