Almost one-third of millenials still live with parents

For the first time ever, more millennials are living with their parents than are married or living with a partner, almost one-third. This otherwise intelligent AP article citing the Pew study starts with a silly sentence say these millennials are “in no hurry to move out of their old bedrooms.” I think it’s much more […]

Three Everest climbers dead from altitude sickness

Three deaths from altitude sickness, one death from falling, two climbers are missing, and about thirty are sick or have frostbite on Mount Everest. I have to wonder if expeditions are being rushed. Acclimating to altitude can take weeks and can’t be hurried. The standard procedure is to start at a lower camp, go higher […]

India records highest temperature ever, 123.

India just had their highest temperatures ever at 123.8. Is this due to climate change, normal fluctuations, or both?

Venezuela is nearing financial collapse with a coup possible, say concern trolls from US intelligence, who are almost certainly doing whatever they can to speed the collapse of that pesky socialist Maduro government.

FEC slams Sanders campaign for excessive contributions

I’ve written database programs that tracked campaign contributions for a politician. It’s not rocket science. You get full name, address, occupation and track how much they give so they don’t go over whatever the limits are. Unfortunately, the Sanders campaign has been inexcusably sloppy about this. This is not something a campaign can be careless […]
