Here's the boildown:
A New York woman is on a mission to make her boyfriend 300 different sandwiches so he’ll finally put a ring on it! Stephanie Smith, a New York Post reporter, says the idea came about when she made her boyfriend, Eric, a turkey sandwich about a year ago. After taking one bite, he said, “Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!” Eric may have been joking, but Smith says she’s not one to turn down a challenge. Now, she’s documenting her journey to 300 sandwiches on her blog (she’s almost at 180). The project has attracted plenty of attention, much of it negative. Critics are calling 300 Sandwiches a huge step backward for feminism and accusing Smith of being a 1950-esque “Stepford wife.” But to her critics, Smith says she’s just enjoying the cooking experience and doing something nice for her man. And Eric says he “would have married her without one sandwich.” In his eyes, Smith must be the best thing since sliced bread!

FDA APPROVES NEW BREAST CANCER DRUG
A first-of-its-kind breast cancer drug from Roche has won FDA approval. Perjeta treats a certain form of early-stage breast cancer before surgery in women who are at high risk of having the disease spread. Doctors hope the drugs and others like it will help shrink tumors, making them easier to remove. In breast cancer patients, pre-surgical medications may prevent the need for a full mastectomy.
