    Coping with stress and anxiety is on the curriculum at several Long Island schools. Students in elementary grades are learning meditation techniques. On most days, Mr. D's fourth grade class in Islip is like any other class. But once a week for 8 weeks, teachers like Kelly come in and teach students about mindfulness.

    Taxis come in yellow, green, black, and now... hot pink? They're called SheTaxis and they are from a cab service for women by women. (The cabs aren't actually pink, but drivers will carry pink pashminas.)The service is coming to New York this week. You could almost think of it as an all-female Uber.
