Flying Blind: The View From 30,000 Feet Puts Everything in Perspective

Source: Miller-McCune

It was a late-afternoon departure from JFK to LAX that would have us flying into the sunset. As it turned out, I had an aisle seat. But I knew I could still lean over enough to catch some sight of the expanses below. And I imagined that most of the people on the plane—families and tourists coming and going for the holidays—would be looking out to enjoy the scenes as well. But on takeoff all the shades went down, plunging the cabin ...

We don’t like it any more than you do that the last text in our correspondence was us promoting our last show and now it’s time tell you about tonight’s show. We don’t like going around town distributing posters and flyers. We don’t like Facebooking and Tweeting incessantly about our upcoming show or new album. But we realize that this is a necessary headache we take on because we believe in our art so much. We know if we don’t promote ...

Dogs can also get jealous, new study suggests


Creative Commons/lizzie1326If the finding from the current study is true — and dogs, as well as humans, can act jealous — then the emotion is much more primordial. Jealousy is apparently not just a human emotion. For, according to a first-of-its-kind study published Wednesday in the journal PLOS ONE, dogs, too, are capable of becoming overcome with the green-eyed monster.Of course, that finding won’t come as much of a surprise to most dog own ...

Source: Miller-McCune

A federal judge in Alabama has taken the rare step of ruling against a local school board in a desegregation case, rejecting the board’s claims that it had done all it could to end segregation in its schools. In a lengthy, at times scathing ruling issued last month, U.S. District Court Judge Madeline Hughes Haikala said she could not “conclusively” determine that the Huntsville City Schools District wasn’t still operating an unconstitutionally segregated system ...

Here’s One Unexpected Way to Land on the NSA’s Watch List

Source: Miller-McCune

German journalists recently revealed that the National Security Agency has a program to collect information about people who use privacy-protecting services, including popular anonymizing software called Tor. But it’s not clear how many users have been affected.
