Alibi Hero: Our Weekly Instagram Photo Contest

Here at the Alibi we love a lot of things. We are moved by the whimsies and strikingly cold realities of being human and living on Earth. Without heroes, who would we be? Who would guide us through the dark times? Inspire us to be better?

Ham, the first chimpanzee in space was launched into the bursting ether on January 31st, 1961. Named after the lab that prepped his precious body for space exploration, Holloman Aerospace Medical Center, Ham continues to inspire all of us at the Alibi and is our elected hero.

Because we can't win our own contest, we asked you to submit pictures of your hero. This week's winner is Instagram user stormyjill, who captioned her picture with the following:

"Abby, Rape Crisis Center of Central New Mexico's Volunteer Coordinator and my best friend. I'm super proud of you and not a lot of people would be able to do what you do for a living. I'm happy to embarrass you and name you as my #alibihero."

Not only are we thankful for the work that people like Abby do on a daily basis, we are also sorta hoping you'll take your BFF out to lunch with the $10 in Alibi Bucks you won. But don't worry, we have some treats for you too!

Email amelia@alibi.com to redeem your prizes!

The Daily Word in making the elderly comfortable, DOGS and oppressive military policies

It's Friday and I'm kind of crabby and kind of excited for the lunch I packed. News is kind of good and kind of horribly depressing.

Live your life!

The military typically discharges transgender troops on medical grounds.

High five to Lovelace Westside Hospital for making their emergency room more comfortable for seniors. The new rooms feature softer lighting, clocks and signs that are easier to read.

A man in Brazil posted an unexpectedly funny and poignant Facebook post and the internet REALLY liked it.

In case you're kinda dumb, here is a page explaining what a dog is.

The Daily Word in alien license plates, the religion of Cher and gerbils causing the plague

The Daily Word

It's Tuesday and the sun is shining here in Albuquerque. JK! It's freezing.

It’s snowing! It’s snowing! CLOSE ALL THE SCHOOLS! CANCEL WORK!

You’re chewing too loud! Apparently there is a name for the feeling of rage you experience when the person next to you is breathing too loud.

Rats are not to blame for the Black Death! A new study suggests gerbils are the actual culprits in the “second plague pandemic.”

Feeding your baby peanut butter might prevent her from serious nut allergies in the future. Peanut butter for the win! PS. Don’t try this at home.

Cher calls out Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson for vetoing a bill that would allow for more LGBT anti-discrimination laws. Like we needed any more reasons to worship Cher.

The Daily Word In Bossy Vaginas, Scottish Geese and Expensive Chile

The Daily Word

Your vagina is a boss!

If you’re a teen who texts and drives, a New Mexican college student is in the process of releasing an app that will track every move you make while operating a vehicle!

The University of Vermont acknowledges a third gender and allows students to be identified by their chosen first name, even if they have not legally changed their name yet. They also honor preferred pronouns. AKA VERMONT RULES.

The woman who famously called Angelina Jolie a “talentless brat” (um, hasn’t she seen Hackers?) stepped down from her position at Sony.

A totally irrelevant piece about Scottish geese.

There is no price too high to keep us from our chile, but dammit if we don’t get more rain.

The Daily Word in Grandmas Who Get High, Ryan Gosling's "Twin Soul" Stalker and America Doesn't Need Gun Regulations, Duh!

The Daily Word

It’s Friday November 21st 2014 and people still send things in the mail!

Meanwhile in California, a totally stable and pretty nice lady left a doll catalog on the front steps of Ryan Gosling's house, because she is his “twin soul”. This happened after Gosling's sister didn’t respond to the woman’s countless emails. RUDE.

And turtles really loved Truth or Consequences 90 million years ago.

If any of you wondered what your grandma does between reading Readers Digest and eating at Crackle Barrel, here’s a clue ,

Add College Universities to the most terrifying places to coexist.

The Daily Word in ebola, Ello and Pantone beer packaging

The Daily Word

In Liberia and Sierra Leone, the ebola death toll is at least 2,917. Liberian capital Monrovia faces an epidemic, as infections outpace access to health care.

The skull of a new species of dino, Ankylousaur, is now on display at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. BLM paleontologist Phil Gensler said, "It looks vaguely like an armored alligator."

The IRS raided Downtown business BigByte, a data center, this morning.

What is new anti-Facebook social network Ello's story?

This Pantone beer packaging reminds me of those what-color-is-your-urine hydration charts. (Generally speaking, the darker your urine is, the more dehydrated you are. But vitamins, supplements and certain health conditions can also affect urine color.)
