Congrats to Jon Keeyes and Nightmare Box on its multiple nominations in the Winter 2015 Macabre Faire Film Festival.
Serial: High school students may be more, er, connected than they thought. And not in a good way.
The ugly truth: The NYPD work stoppage is showing how little what they do impacts public safety.
Economic Noble Truths: Who knew that Buddhism and economics had anything in common?
Fly Like an Eagle: To Lake Mead.
I’ve only been saying this since 1991: Colleges have no business whatsoever prosecuting crimes.
Pattern of Misconduct: Ferguson isn’t the first time that prosecutor presented a misleading case against a cop.
Republicans and Social Security: interesting.
And Finally: The Big Fat Book of Offensive Religious Cartoons.
See everybody tomorrow!
Gee, D’ya Think?: Turning underpaid undocumented workers into legal taxpayers making at least minimum wage could boost the economy.
I Could Like this Pope: Ok, he’s not perfect (No, I don’t believe in Papal Infallibility either). At least he has no Nazi entanglements, what with having been a little kid on the other side of the globe during World War 2. But there’s something to be said for a Pope who preaches things like taking care of the environment and those less fortunate than ourselves. It’s like he’s been reading some sort of… Bible or something.
Nevada is Catching On: I think we may just pass a legal marijuana bill here, mostly because the Legislature smells tax dollars.
Turns out it’s easier for everyone: When I was a kid in school, we were “tracked by ability” and we all knew it. Nobody ever told us there were the “smart kids,” the “average kids,” and the “dummies,” but we all knew who we were — and among ourselves, those were the names we used. No “bluebirds and redbirds” for us. That sort of self-labeling might be part of why schools discarded the practice. But it’s back. It has to be easier to teach (and learn in) a group of 20 kids with similar abilities than 20 kids that are all over the map!
Gonna have to try this: Veggie oil + baking soda = cabinet cleaner.
Security Theatre: The TSA is protecting us from people on trains who have had medical tests.
Considering a career in criminal justice?: Then please do check out DiscoverCriminalJustice.com.
On Perception of Aging: And why a good lipstick is really important.
Top Ten Candidates for Species Resurrection: Scientists think there is hope for bringing back these extinct animals.
The more you know: Failure to use a condom when planned counts as condom failure.
Who knew?: Big cats like classical music.
And finally: It’s coming. It’s slow, but it’s coming.
