This Graphic Designer Offers Her Services To Restaurants In Exchange For A Meal.

Culture
New York-based graphic designer Lauren Hom noticed something around her neighborhood in Crown Heights, Brooklyn: the restaurants needed help. Not in the busboy or wait staff department, but with their boring specials signs. Hom explains, "I noticed that it's common for a restaurant to have a menu board that's written by, like, a hung-over hostess." She doesn't mean to cause offense to anyone's handwriting, but as an aesthetic enthusiast by nature, she was inspired to strike a deal with the local eateries to benefit them both. She began her project, Will Letter For Lunch, in September and offers her design prowess for the restaurant's sandwich boards or even entire menus. Her payment: lunching on whatever she wrote.

He Went Into a Coma as a Muslim. When He Came Out Of It, Jesus Was There.

Culture
Syrian-born Karim Shamsi-Basha was once a Muslim. In 1992, he had sudden brain aneurysm that left him in a month-long coma. He woke up and miraculously recovered. His doctor told Karim he had "seen very few people recover as you did. You have to find out why you survived." After realizing what miracle he experienced, Karim began a 20 year, soul searching journey that led him to one thing: Jesus Christ. After his recovery, he began reading the Bible. He was immediately struck by its focus on God's love and grace. By 1996, he was baptized. "In 2008 I completely surrendered to God," he said. "Now I can't get enough." He knows God was responsible for his miracle survival and recovery. His family are still devout Muslims, but he remains c...
