Her brow is resolute, as if hardened by innumerable Yankee losses. Her right arm is aloft, as if waving for the Uber guy. And her feet — they’re a ladies’ size 879, rangers like to say. Even if you’re hazy about who is allowed to go where inside the Statue of Liberty, you know this landmark well....
We know what you're thinking: shouldn't Deadpool be resting on his laurels and waiting for Deadpool 2 to start rolling? Well, knowing our favorite merc with a mouth like we do, it's no surprise that he crashed an X-Men: Apocalypse trailer to help sell the flick.
When Lions quarterback said last week that the Lions might be tougher to cover without retired wide receiver Calvin Johnson, it sounded like the thing a quarterback has to say. But Johnson, at least, believes he has a point. The former Lions wideout suggested that others might not have always taken advantage of the double-teams…
Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. CNN recently asked me if I was addicted to work. (I like to think that all headlines that reference the pronoun “you” are speaking solely to me.) Um… I’m not addicted to work, though I […]

Fish may be smarter than we thought. Not only can some recognize human faces, but others can use their senses in a way that it was believed only humans and other mammals could manage. A team of zoologists at the University of Bonn has...Show More Summary
Looking GOOD (sorry we had to)! On Sunday, Meagan Good brought her A-game for the BET Awards red carpet as she rocked an emerald green, silk dress designed by Lorena Sarbu. FABOOSH! In addition to the Think Like A Man actress' gorgeous cut out gown, Miz Good donned some seriously stunning accessories. We mean, did you SEE [...]
The dark underbelly of society is not something we like to think about — much less talk about — but it’s there. An app named TraffickCam shines a light on human trafficking, and lets you intervene without getting involved. After downloading...Show More Summary
Pride is sort of like every holiday rolled into one. We dress up like its Halloween (though arguably there’s only one costume theme), we celebrate love like it’s Valentine’s day, the excitement is so high you’d think it was Christmas and we eat like it’s Thanksgiving. Ha! Kidding — who eats during Pride? Also just [...]
I'm currently drafting up a fellowship proposal to hopefully cover the cost of my dumbass doing science for the next year or so. I'd like to think I have a compelling idea that fits within the programatic priorities of this funding group and I think they'd agree since I made it through the initial triage […]

Sounds like: Grimes, Manatee Commune Song: Valley Hush - Iced Cream What's so good? "Iced Cream" is the second single off Valley Hush's forthcoming album, which is slowly materializing into something like the thinking man's experimental pop. One has to admire the sentiment of Vanicelli's vocals. Show More Summary
The year 1988 was a unique time in my life, both chessically and personally. In 1987, I had just won my second North Carolina championship and earned the National Master title. In hindsight it seems like the one period of my chess life when I was brimming with confidence; I had achieved two of my greatest […]
E3 2016 having come and gone feels like a distant memory at this point, but that won't stop me from making a list of who I thought the winners and losers of the show were. Somehow, I think some of you will disagree, and that is fine by me. Opinions are like assholes: I love 'em. Read more...
Lest one think that the Gutenberg Project only provides bizarre books of America’s past that make ridiculous arguments, let me at least point out that you can access such texts like this 1847 anti-slavery children’s alphabet book that is really neat. Share
Hey, I know just you want on a Sunday morning! A physics problem! If it helps, think of it as a brain teaser. Like many such, it’s deceptively simple, but when you start to think about it a lot of concepts collide and it’s not as obvious as you might suppose at first glance. Here’s my friend Dianna Cowern, aka Physics Girl, with the brain-stumper. Show More Summary
A quarter century ago I moved North of Delmar — from the Central West End. As I reflect back on the last 25 years, I think about what the next 25 might look like. The National Geospatial Agency (NGA) will have been in it’s new headquarters for years. Will it help...
The following post was originally featured on Carriage Before Marriage and written by Amy Wruble, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Moms. I think 89% of you read this already via social media, but I liked this post and wanted to make sure it got to the anti-Facebook crowd. You should see me with the baby. Show More Summary
Humans. We have been around for a while now. When we think about our past we think about ancient civilizations, the pyramids, stuff like that. But this is only a tiny, tiny part of our history. YouTube link The Presurfer
