What happens when we boost our oxygen intake? Most of us breathe in about 21 percent.
Darius Endres and Jeremy Veum, owners of Sports Vape, say inhaling more oxygen can help people get rid of headaches, relieve hangovers and feel a bit more euphoric. It even can boost our immune system.

While Cobb has put the town on red alert for his bold and forthright racist actions, one group in particular, UnityND, is taking him head on.

Love is what I saw in Valerie and Diane’s letter from North Dakota, who’ve been together for 37 years. Their son, Madison, is here, 14. They told me that when Madison was little -- he’s not little now, by the way. He used to say that someday, he was going to become president and make it legal for his moms to get married. – President Barack Obama, White House’s LGBT Pride Month Reception.
In April 2013, Valerie Nelson…

Last Friday night
Yeah we danced on tabletops
And we took too many shots
Think we kissed but I forgot
Last Friday night
Yeah we maxed our credit cards
And got kicked out of the bar
So we hit the boulevard

It's music you would hear in the…
