This listing is amazing when you see how many attacks have occurred so far this year. As of today, there have been 1272 Islamic Extremist attacks in 50 countries, in which 11772 people were killed and 14303 injured.

Does this sound like the beginning of the movie "Snowpiercer (2013)"? From IMDb's website, Snowpiercer is "set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet..."
Mimic an eruption by spraying sulfuric acid into the stratosphere.

This is an amazing animation of the destination and and origination of migrants in Europe over the past few years.
THE flow of more than a million migrants into Europe has been shown in these amazing interactive maps.

It's rare that I complement the New York Times.. However, after reading this article, I just added something to my bucket list -- riding these roller coasters.
On a giga coaster, altitude, rather than speed, has become the defining characteristic. We tested four of them.

This is why I was very disappointed when Android 4.4 removed Permission Manager.  All the aps that for seemingly unknown reasons have access to your phone number, address book, location and phone identity can be used by NSA.
Revelations that the National Security Agency is tapping smartphone applications to mine personal information highlight the risk millions take every day when they play games, schedule lunch or check the weather.

A recent study showed commissaries save military family an average of 30% on grocery bills annually.  This proposal would punish service members to make a political point against the effect of Sequester's on DoD's budget.
