Oregon Wine Pioneer David Adelsheim Promises the Best Is Yet to Come By John Mariani

Planning For A Healthy New York Seascape

Imagine arriving home one day, excited to see how work is going on the beautiful new deck you're installing. But the contractor's in a snit because there's a truck in the driveway blocking his way.

Predictive Policing Software Is More Accurate At Predicting Policing Than Predicting Crime

“Predictive policing” has an enticing ring to it. The idea is that you feed a bunch of data into a mysterious algorithm, and poof, out comes intelligence about the future that tells police where the next crime is going to occur, or even who is going to commit it. Show More Summary

Four Years After The Wrecking Ball, Bruce Is Back...And So Am I

The phone rang twice on that September night in 2012, and both times Bruce Springsteen was on the other end.
