Getting away with murder is (thankfully) not an easy thing to do. Still, the number of murders that go unsolved in the United States may be higher than you think.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation keeps track of all crime-related data and lists it on its official site. In 2012 (the most recent year with available data), there were an estimated 13,092 cases of murder and nonnegligent manslaughter in the U.S. According to the FBI, 62.5 percent of those crimes were cleared. Approximately 4,910 deaths have not yet been solved.
The word “cleared” could use a definition, and here is the FBI’s: A crime — in this case, murder — is “cleared” when either an arrest is made or “elements beyond the control of law enforcement prevent the agency from arresting and formally charging the offender, by exceptional means.” In other words, if the suspected offender dies before an arrest can be made, that case is counted as being cleared.
How do other countries rate? In England and Wales (combined population around 57 million), there were 551 homicides in 2012, according to the U.K.’s Guardian. Clearly, that number is much lower than the one in the United States. But some argue that the two countries don’t collect crime data in the same way, making any comparison nearly useless.
There is a little bit of good news — according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the homicide rate in the United States has been trending downward since 1980.

I started collecting empty diaper boxes and any other cardboard boxes I happened to acquire thinking that there is always a good way to re-use them. My daughter and I have done arts & crafts, cards, paintings… and now we’ll turn them into storage bins!
My storage area is a big mess! I need bins to organize my laundry items, Christmas decorations, winter accessories, dog food and recycled materials. My husband suggested to buy some plastic bins from Walmart but where’s the fun in that? I have many wonderful cardboard boxes waiting to be re-used; I can upcycle my boxes, entertain my 3 year old daughter who loves painting, save money and the planet!
The materials we used were, crafter’s paint (from the dollar store), paint brush, knife cutter, clear packing tape, duct tape, recycled magazines and cardboard boxes.
Cut off the top flaps with the knife cutter to have an open box with easy access.
To be able to paint, we need to turn the box inside out. Locate the side seam, open with the knife cutter, turn the box inside out and tape the sides and bottom with clear packing tape.
Paint the sides of the box (we didn’t paint the bottom) and use recycled magazines to decorate. Wrap duct tape around the top of the box to make it sturdy.
My storage area looks much better now, we upcycled five boxes, had lots of fun painting, cutting magazines, gluing pom poms and saving the planet one box at a time.

Moustaches, goatees, beards, men can style and grow their facial hair anyway they want. Facial hair keeps your face warm and lots of women seem to dig beards. A man with scruff is sexy, masculine, rugged, tough and…hipster? As reported in the New York Post there seems to be plenty of sad hipsters out there who are struggling, let me repeat struggling to sprout a single hair, let alone a full beard.
If you’re a hipster struggling to fit into your Williamsburg, Park Slope or insert gentrified neighborhood in Brooklyn and hiding your bare face, than rejoice, there’s hope for you now—facial hair transplants. Yes, take a moment and think about this, we’ve evolved from naturally hairy cavemen, to fashion obsessed men paying to transplant hair from men’s heads onto their faces for a shocking $8,500.
Looking like a lumberjack is cool and all, but if you’re taking hair from other areas of your body and putting it on your face, maybe it’s time to rethink your priorities. Save your money, move out of Brooklyn, and stop being a wannabe hipster.
If you aren’t a candidate for “Beard of the Year” than maybe you weren’t meant to be one—and that baby-faced hipsters is okay.
